Coffee in the garden RANCHO SANTA FE — Earlier this month, the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club hosted a Coffee in the Garden event at the Osuna Ranch. The event, which was free to Garden Club members, gave attendees the opportunity to tour the garden and its new landscaping, which was made possible from a Garden Club grant. The gathering also provided more information on the upcoming plans for the Ranch. Another Coffee in the Garden event is scheduled for March 8 at a private residence in Cielo.

RANCHO SANTA FE — At the monthly Rancho Santa Fe School District board meeting, director of finance Bradley Johnson shared with the board some forecasting based on a chart by Capitol Advisors. According to Johnson, the organization is made up by a group of experts in California who mainly focus on education policy, finance, politics, administrative analysis, and other services. “What’s great about their organization is they partner with the state of California, all of the local county, and also school districts to discuss impacts as the governor’s budget is released on an annual basis. So in January we get the preliminary budget from the governor, the proposed budget, and then again we get the many revised,” Johnson said. “And with that, Capital Advisors combs through the budget and they present impacts, whether they’re positive or negative associated with how it will affect a school’s budget.” Johnson wanted the board to know that one of the topics that emerged was the CalSTRS and CalPERS contribution rates; and, raising the rates that both employees and employers pay towards retirement. Each school board member had a chart to follow as Johnson explained the topic. He shared how the chart represented what the school district would pay on an annual basis. “And based on some of the assumptions moving forward, in both retirement systems either for teachers or for classified staff and admin-

istrators, there’s been lower than forecasted investment returns and also more retirees taking benefits,” he said. Johnson added, “So they are projecting a higher cost on both the CalSTRS and CalPERS, and that will affect how we budget moving forward for the employers’ contribution rates. So we just want to present this to you just to give you an idea of what’s in the forecast.” Johnson said the percentages would not go up quickly. “But you can see between now and 2024 CalPERS goes up more than double and CalSTRS goes up just over 60 percent,” he said. Johnson then noted that while these were based on projections, he would continually stay in touch with Capital Advisors to get the latest information. Board President Todd Frank asked Johnson if he could somewhat confirm if there would be approximately a $100,000 additional staffing each year going forward over the next six years. “So that six years out, we’ll probably have an additional incremental cost of $600,000 that we need to build into the budget for that year,” Frank said. Johnson confirmed that was correct. “So it’s all based on the salaries that are paid out and then any increase of that will be affected by these percentages,” he said. During the course of the discussion, Superintendent David Jaffe said how the fiduciary management of the school budgets was one of his primary goals and he was happy to have Johnson on board to help with that process.

RSF Garden Club gets quarterly update By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club President Phil Larsen kicked off the Feb. 22 quarterly meeting welcoming its members and guests. Following a reception at the Garden Club, everyone took their seats to hear business matters. Larsen shared how the Garden Club’s investments are held at the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation. “Many of the charitable organizations in our community also use this foundation for their investments,” he said. Larsen went on to say how the investments are made conservatively. “I think most organizations that use this foundation are quite happy with the results. And we are as well.” Larsen wanted members to know that as far as the Garden Club’s finances were concerned they were

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association Board of Directors approved a forest health study presented to them by the Committee on the Natural Environment (CONE) at its February monthly meeting. The Board agreed on working with Dudek, a local environmental consulting company. During the course of the approvals, Tree San Diego was also designated as the organization to assess the trees within the Covenant. The cost of the study is $50,000. While the Rancho Santa Fe Association approved a $30,000 allocation, the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation will provide the remaining balance of $20,000. “As you know, we have dying trees inside the Covenant,” said RSF Association President Fred Wasserman. “We’ve lost many trees over the last several years from drought and disease, and so this activity that is being discussed and presented is in response to the need for dealing with the serious problem that we have.” Wasserman then asked board director Rick Sapp to provide further details. Sapp explained how CONE meets regularly on the subject of the natural environment. He went on to say how their planning committee has worked with CONE to establish and finalize the contracts for both Dudek and Tree San Diego. One study will offer a list of TURN TO FOREST ON 21

Board Scotti lectures on meditation approves forest health study By Christina Macone-Greene


T he R ancho S anta F e News

RANCHO SANTA FE — Dr. Richard Scotti led a talk on meditation at the Rancho Santa Fe Library sharing how when individuals take part in it they have the ability to achieve happiness and peace in their own lives. During the Feb. 15 lecture, Scotti shared how when someone enters a place of quiet, it is also serves as a passageway to a completely different universe. According to Scotti, having knowledge and wisdom can be attained when passing through that element of quiet. And that way is through mediation. Scotti also noted how the world is dualistic. “When we want some-

thing to have or not to have we call it a desire,” he said. “Whenever we have a desire it creates a duality.” Scotti explained that the whole purpose of meditation was to allow things to go by and not react to them. Energy dissipates when a person learns to become non-reactive to it. “So what happens is when you sit for meditation for half an hour then your whole film strip of your chores for the day is taken out. The ends are put back together and you really are living a different way,” he said. “When you sit without reacting ‘to have or not to have,’ you’re nullifying the comic reaction; and, that TURN TO MEDITATION ON 21

Farrar updates board on projects, code enforcement By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe Association interim building commissioner Tom Farrar updated the Association board at the monthly February meeting on a variety of items including how 43 projects were submitted to the Covenant Design Review Committee (CDRC) within in the last 31 days. “We have approved 28 of those projects that have gone through the process,” Farrar said. According to Farrar, there are a variety of projects coming through the Association including several commercial projects. “We’ve got one proposal that will be submitted within the next few weeks for a new pharmacy right kitty corner to where the original pharmacy is at,” he said. When asked by the board for more information on this, Farrar shared how to date the Association already had two meetings with them which consisted of a pre-application meet-

ing. Farrar said that before a project submission, these meetings help in terms of providing guidance while talking about the project as a whole. “I do understand that they’re entertaining putting a deli in which would be very nice,” he said. Farrar also noted how several new homes, remodels and accessory structures were also being processed. Farrar wanted the board to know that other projects coming in were bodies of water such as fountains and ponds, which may need approval. “Not that it’s totally our purview to do that, but we just want to look at them to ensure that there aren’t any reclaimed water conditions that might affect that approval because if you use reclaimed water you can’t touch it,” he said, adding how there are certain guidelines. Farrar said the second component was working with the county to see if there were certain provisions the Association could

add to their approval process. On the code enforcement front, Farrar noted 60 active cases with 15 that closed in the prior month. TURN TO PROJECTS ON 10

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe School District consultant Ashley Adams provided highlights to the board about her assessment of MUSE art programs at the school. MUSE encompasses the four disciplines of visual arts, theatre, music, and dance. School board members listened to Adams’ February presentation during the course of their monthly meeting. Superintendent David Jaffe introduced the item describing how Adams took part in a comprehensive review of their arts program. “Ashley spent a significant amount of time meeting with all the stakeholders involved in this and I think it’s a very comprehensive report and will give us a good idea of what she has seen,” he said. Adams began by thanking the board and community calling the experience “an incredible couple of months” which she truly enjoyed. “Your students have impressed me most deeply. They are an incredible group,” she said. Adams shared how she observed the students in class, after school activities, assemblies, and art performances. “It has been such a joy to see them discover new things and have exciting new ideas, to grow their confidence, and to also express their developing sense of identity for the arts; that’s incredibly inspiring to me, so thank you for that opportunity,” she said. Adams said while looking at the MUSE programs and recognizing how unique they were, it was also important to reach out to the community, parents, and elementary teachers. “It truly reflects the community it serves, and so I think when you look at this program and you’re thinking critically about what it is and what you hope it will be, I think it’s important to take all of those people’s input into consideration,” she said.

with your MUSE teachers, and we actually had two departmental meetings while I was here.” Adams had the teachers take part in an extensive questionnaire that asked them about every aspect of their programs, which helped Adams assess the entire program. Also part of the study considerations was a parent meeting. Adams went on to say how she had numerous formal and informal conversations with the principals and superintendent on how they could strengthen the MUSE program. The report corresponded with the visual and performing arts standards of California, she said. “I would like to note there are national core art standards, and those include a fifth discipline which is media arts — media arts are not included in the California state standards. It will be in the next two to three years. I think that’s a clear reflection of how important media is in our world now and the importance of visual literacy as well,” she said. Adams cited how MUSE was an awesome program. The goal was to support them for sustainable health and to make them be the best that they can be for the long-term. One of the recommendations made pertained to outreach. “What can be done to strengthen it even more is to create some sort of parents’ arts council that meets monthly with MUSE leadership and creates a forum so that the parents can come with concerns and questions,” she said. “It’s a place where you can increase volunteerism, and you can really improve those communications between parents and the MUSE teachers. There’s so much happening right now but it needs to be focused and it needs to be organized a little bit.” However, the one of the top two recommenTURN TO MUSE ON 10

How to Sell High: Avoid these Mistakes When Selling Your Rancho Santa Fe Home RANCHO SANTA FE - When you decide to sell your home, setting your asking price is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Depending on how a buyer is made aware of your home, price is often the first thing he or she sees, and many homes are discarded by prospective buyers as not being in the appropriate price range before they’re even given a chance of showing. Your asking price is often your home’s “first impression”, and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, it’s imperative that you make a good first impression. This is not as easy as it sounds, and pricing strategy should not be taken lightly. Pricing too high can be as costly to a home seller as pricing too low. Taking a look at what homes in your neighborhood have sold for

is only a small part of the process, and on its own is not nearly enough to help you make the best decision. A recently study, which compiles 10 years of industry research, has resulted in a new special report entitled “Home Sellers: How to Get the Price You Want (and Need)”. This report will help you understand pricing strategy from three different angles.

What will President Trump mean for Real Estate? By Michael Carunchio

In a nation in which homeownership is largely seen as synonymous with the American dream, it’s a question that real estate professionals are now asking: How will President Trump impact the U.S. housing market in 2017? Will a Trump presidency launch a sustained upward trend in homeownership rates? Mr. Trump is a real estate tycoon who has made a fortune building luxury condominiums, hotels and casinos. But will that experience enable him to help the middle class, which faces a lack of affordable housing and rising prices? The surprise election of Donald J. Trump has real estate professionals wondering how a new Washington regime will impact our profession, one way or another. During his campaign, Mr. Trump has said his priorities would be cutting taxes and creating jobs. In addition, Mr. Trump’s tax plan explicitly stated that he would preserve the mortgage interest deduction. If we take him at his word, then the prospects for the housing market are not bad. Today, Americans want to feel secure and believe they have a fair shot in the marketplace. Overall, I believe Donald Trump represents good news for home buyers and sellers. Mr. Trump has a tremendous opportunity to write a new chapter in housing policy and build a legacy based on achievement and improving prosperity for the working class. If President Trump is successful in launching massive rebuilding programs in inner cities and for aging infrastructure across the country, then the impact could be tremendous for real estate, the building industry and skilled labor. Meanwhile, industry analysts vary in their predictions on the impact to the

Defunding California: Whose money is it? California Focus By Thomas D. Elias


ime and again, President Trump threatens to withhold federal grants from California cities, universities and the state itself unless they accept policies he wants to pursue, from large-scale deportation of undocumented immigrants to bashing the heads of campus protestors. “California is in many ways out of control,” he said in one recent interview. Out of his control, he seemed to mean. Then, asked if “defunding is your weapon of choice” to force the state into line, he allowed that, “It’s a weapon. We give them a hell of a lot of money. I don’t want to defund a state or a city. I don’t want to defund anybody…If they’re going to have sanctuary cities, we may have to do that. Certainly, that would be a weapon.” Two questions he wasn’t asked: Whose money is he talking about? And, who gets most of that money? The answer to the second question is easy: Most federal money arriving here goes to ordinary people, via Social Security payments, Medicare and Medi-Cal payments. That accounts for the vast majority of the $367.8 billion the federal government spends in California every year. (The figure comes from a Tax Foundation study.) Meanwhile, Californians pay in much more than that in income, Social Security and Medicare taxes. So we’re really talking about our own money here, with the federal government mostly acting as a conduit. Should California adopt a wide “sanctuary state” policy requiring all cities and counties to follow the practice of police in San

Francisco, Los Angeles, Santa Ana and other California cities that – among other things – don’t inquire about the immigration status of most people they arrest, Trump says, “If we have to, we’ll defund.” He plainly thinks he can take any federal funds he likes from California and its cities. Does he also propose to cut off Social Security benefits to Californians if legislators adopt the plan they’re now considering? No one knows precisely what Trump intends. But he plainly believes he can withhold funds at his will. But that’s not how most federal grants work. Repeat-

No one knows precisely what Trump intends. But he plainly believes he can withhold funds at his will. ed court decisions, like the 1987 case of South Dakota v. Dole, say there has to be some link between the purpose for withholding federal grants and whatever program they’re being taken from. This means that Trump cannot withhold Pell Grant money from California students just because he didn’t like it when police failed to beat black-clad marauders who violently took over a demonstration at UC Berkeley that began as a peaceful protest over a scheduled speech by an editor of the alternative right website Breitbart News. Nor can he out of pique withhold cancer research funding. He also can’t take money from sewer or mass transit projects if he’s unhappy with policing in sanctuary

cities getting those grants. But the decisions probably do mean that if Berkeley again cancels a similar sort of speech, Trump could halt grants used in part to pay campus speakers — although there is no record of federal funds paying for this. A significant question is why Trump singles out California, which contains a relatively small minority of the nation’s 106 sanctuary cities. Why, for example, did he not threaten Tucson, Ariz., whose sanctuary policy is one of the oldest, dating from the 1980s? Might it be relate to the fact he carried Arizona last fall while losing California by more than 4.5 million votes? Is this more a matter of revenge than policy? Only Trump knows what he intends and why, just as only he knows why he left Saudi Arabia off the list of nations whose citizens he’s trying to deny admission to the United States, when most perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks, the most significant terror ever on American soil, came from there. Like much of Trump’s agenda, widely defunding California would require action from Congress. It’s doubtful many California Republican House members would meekly acquiesce in withholding funds from the state in a general, non-targeted way that could severely affect their constituents. All of which makes it highly unlikely that Trump alone can deny much money to California, even if he tries. That’s only fair, since the money he’s talking about actually comes from Californians, even if it is later mingled with other funds while in the Treasury. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

real estate profession under a Trump administration with Republicans controlling both chambers of Congress. Mr. Trump made his billions as a real estate developer so he knows well the hurdles of dealing with zoning burdens. We might see fewer regulations for new home construction, thereby lowering the cost of building and increasing homeownership. Simply put, Mr. Trump’s first term will be defined by fulfilling his campaign promises and economic improvement. Among other crystal-ball predictions: • If Trump is anything, he is a guy who has built buildings. And, a lack of inventory is widely considered the biggest current drag on the housing market. So, if builders could benefit from lower corporate taxes and deregulation, then the result could be an expansion of existing home inventory. In July of last year, the U.S. Census Bureau announced the homeownership rate in this country had hit its lowest level since the government began measuring the stat in 1965. • The housing market thrives on optimism. Boosted by a Trump confidence pop, demand may increase and mortgage money may become plentiful as equity-sharing mortgages become more widespread with support from big lenders. If banks make it easier to lend to average Americans and lower the credit scores required to qualify for mortgages, then this could increase the buyer pool and give more people a pillar of the American dream: homeownership. Subsequently, lower mortgage rates also could lead to higher home values. Even if rates slightly increase, factor in Mr. Trump’s promised tax cuts, big spending initiatives and reductions in regulations, then home buyers face higher interest rates still won’t be a

huge problem. • Watch for a move away from stringent mortgage underwriting to more normal lending, as well as reforms to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Indeed, some investors are betting Mr. Trump will move the government-controlled mortgage giants into private hands. The fate of mortgage rates may depend in part on the how much pressure the Trump administration puts on the Federal Reserve. • Speaking of optimism, a combination of tax cuts and government spending in the form of upgrading nation’s infrastructure and for national defense is certain to provide a boost to the economy. A stronger economy is always good news for real estate professionals. Accompanying gains in consumer confidence also will further move the economy higher. If we are rooting for the economy to improve, then we are hoping that with Mr. Trump’s background as a business entrepreneur and real estate developer will pave the way for more growth and more development, which would be a net beneficial for real estate. Let’s hope that Mr. Trump can deliver positively as only he can do. “Making America Great Again” could mean significantly improving confidence and behavior leading to a positive economic outlook that would not cost taxpayer an extra penny. Now, that would be a terrific scenario.

Fairgrounds clock tower grounded, supporting building demolished By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — The deteriorating building on which it stood for more than six decades is gone. But, as promised, the Don Diego clock tower has been preserved and is ready for relocation on one of two possible sites at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. It was announced in December that the structure, which has stood in the center of the state-owned facility since 1953, would be demolished for safety reasons. “It’s being held togeth-

er by threads and termites holding hands,” said Russ Penniman, president of the 22nd District Agricultural Association that governs the fairgrounds. General Manager Tim Fennell said refurbishing the building would be too expensive given that the roof leaks and the restrooms, clock and video board don’t work. Potential vendors made a “strong commitment,” according to a staff report, for about $300,000 in rent annually for the site just during the fair.

The 63-year old tower was built using Googie architecture, a futuristic design that originated in Southern California in the 1940s and remained popular for about two decades. Decorative tiles in the likeness of Don Diego, longtime official greeter and host of the fair, were added in 1954 to the façade of the clock tower, located along the main fair avenue west of O’Brien Hall, north of Bing Crosby Hall and south of the Plaza de Mexico. When news of the demolition broke, many San Di-

ego residents said the iconic structure should remain. But fairgrounds officials reiterated their plans in January to remove the building but relocate the clock tower, used by many for years as a meeting place during the annual fair. On Feb. 14 the clock tower, completely intact, stood on the ground next to a pile of rubble that was once the supporting structure. Fennell said the locations of its permanent home would remain a surprise until a final decision is made.

RANCHO SANTA FE — Members of the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club and their guests had the opportunity to hear an informative skin care health talk during the course of their Feb. 22 quarterly meeting at the Garden Club. Registered nurse Jessica Scott, who works at the Art of Skin in Solana Beach, discussed solar protection and a sun-wise lifestyle. According to Scott, individuals need a good foundation in skin health, which begins with waterproof sunscreen and reapplication when outdoors. “Physical sunscreens are much more important than chemical sunscreens as far skin cancer prevention,” she said. Physical sunscreen has both zinc and titanium properties. “Those are the two ingredients that you really want to have in there to protect and be a physical reflector of the sunlight,” Scott said. Scott also noted that when spending time outdoors another helpful sun defense is UPF (Ultra Protection Factor) clothing. Even with the best of intentions, reapplying sunscreen may be forgotten and this is when UPF clothing can help play an important role. Scott was hopeful that attendees would walk away from the lecture with newfound knowledge on sun

Progress on addressing homelessness


omelessness in North County has been on my

mind lately. In the last week and a half, I’ve experienced a few “firsts” in Carlsbad. In the same morning, I saw someone sleeping on a public bench in Carlsbad Village, and another individual, who is a known transient, having a psychotic episode at the train station, screaming obscenities at passersby. Later that evening, I was panhandled outside my grocery store. All in Carlsbad. Sadly, I experienced incidents like this all too often in my years living in downtown San Diego, but never in North County. Perhaps the mere mentioning of these incidents is embarrassing for some folks in town, but I’d rather spend my time in the community building public awareness and urgency to grapple with the challenges we have, whether we choose to acknowledge them or not. To be sure, there’s plenty of evidence to suggest we’re making progress on addressing homelessness here in North County. Recently, I saw a news segment on a “Community Forum on Homelessness” in Oceanside, hosted by the Oceanside Charitable Foundation, which drew a standing-room crowd. One of the forum panelists answering questions from the public was Greg Anglea, executive director of Interfaith Community Services. I’ve interviewed him before for prior columns on homelessness, as his agency is the largest provider of homeless services in our part of the region. Interested in catching up with Anglea, I gave him a call to check in on the latest developments in serving our at-need community members. “Homelessness is a broad and complicated problem,” remarked Anglea, who pointed me to a number of efforts underway here to address the issue. Earlier in mid-February, the Carlsbad City Council approved a $4.25 million construction loan to build a new 50-unit housing project for homeless veterans and their dependents in the Barrio neighborhood (the 2016 annual homeless count identified 1,157 homeless veterans in the county). Interfaith Community Services is also currently looking for a site in North County to host a new Recovery and Wellness Center, to provide assistance for those struggling with addiction TURN TO NORTHBOUND ON 10

While her are achievements are remarkable on their own, Popov’s accomplishments are all the more impressive because she has been bilaterally and profoundly deaf since birth, a condition that was not diagnosed until she was 18 months old. “Back then there wasn’t a required hearing screening for babies,” she said. “My parents would stand behind me and clap or say my name. Sometimes I would respond. Sometimes I wouldn’t. “The pediatrician said it was a phase,” she added. “But my parents finally took me in for a hearing test that confirmed that I had no residual hearing in both of my ears.” About a year later Popov began using hearing aids, which amplified sound. But she was still unable to hear people talking or noises if they were behind her or in another room. At 8 she received a cochlear implant in her left ear. “One of the first things I noticed was I could hear the birds chirping,” Popov said. “That was something I never knew was a thing. Everything was really crisp and clear as well as amplified.” When she was 17 and starting to drive she received an implant in her right ear. “That gave me surround sound so I could locate where the sound was coming from,” she explained. “Together they help a lot. They’re amazing. “Alone it’s harder to pick up certain things but I wouldn’t have done it differently,” she said. “I got one at a time to see how it worked. I’m glad we did it that way because I got used to the first one. And when I was older I had a better idea of what to expect.” Hearing loss didn’t slow Popov when she was young. She has been an avid horse rider since she was 4. During high school she volunteered in the emergency room at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas. “I’ve always had a passion for medicine,” she said. “I shadowed an orthopedic surgeon and later on

an ENT surgeon.” She was observing the operating room when the doctor who placed her second implant was performing the surgery on another person. “He was doing someone else’s implant,” she said. “I thought it was the coolest thing ever. It was very interesting and mind-boggling and inspiring. That’s when I decided I wanted to be an ENT.” Popov said she knew going into the medical field would probably be more challenging for her because she might not be able to pick up certain information. But technology is helping her there, too. During her undergraduate studies in New York, Popov shadowed a deaf doctor. “I got to learn some of his tricks,” she said. “He has to use a special stethoscope that uses cardionic headphones that are bluetooth wired. So that was a cool experience.” In recognition of her achievements, Cochlear Limited recently awarded Popov a Graeme Clark scholarship, named for the professor who invented the multichannel cochlear implant. The scholarship recognizes college students who are Cochlear Nucleus Implant recipients who have demonstrated leadership, humanity and solid academic achievements. Popov will receive $2,000 annually for up to four years to help pay for medical school. Popov has a simple message for parents and youngsters who are in similar situations. “It’s going to be OK,” she said. “For kids like me, just keep going after your dreams. There are no limits and boundaries. Life works in funny ways so just enjoy the ride.”

She also has some advice for anyone who meets a deaf person. “When I say that I’m deaf people assume right away that I won’t be able to speak,” she said. “I think it’s important for people to know there are new technologies that have provided a lot of different options.”

It’s official: North Coast Rep, Encinitas sign negotiating agreement By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — The city of Encinitas and a venerable Solana Beach-based theater company have officially entered into a negotiating agreement to develop a venue at the Encinitas Ranch Town Center several months after the council tentatively supported the creation of the pact. The ink settled on the contract on Feb. 16 between the city and the North Coast Repertory Theatre, which gives the theater company exclusive negotiating rights with the city to lease the property from the city long term to facilitate the creation of a 350seat venue. “While there is no guar-

antee that the negotiating agreement will result in the actual development of a new venue, we are excited and optimistic that it is an important milestone in bringing excellent live regional theatre and related events to a larger audience,” the theater group said in a statement. The negotiating agreement lasts for eight months, according to the resolution approved by the City Council on Feb. 16. The city also approved a $25,000 contract with Keyser Marston Associates to facilitate the process. The theater group originally approached the city in October 2016 when Steve Horine, a developer who it has

retained as a consultant, made a 15-minute presentation that laid out the group’s plans for a 350-seat theater at the Town Center site. The company, best known as “The Rep,” which was founded in 1982 and boasts an annual budget of $2.5 million, just needed to receive the city’s blessing of the plans to start fundraising on its end, Horine said at the time. The theater company is the latest in a line of organizations that have tried to create a theater on the 0.7-acre pad in the Town Center, which is earmarked for a performing arts venue in the specific plan for that shopping center. In 2015, Intrepid Theatre

Company became the latest in a long line of theater groups to approach the city with interest in the site. The City Council in May 2015 entered into exclusive negotiating rights with Intrepid to move forward with the plans. A year later, Intrepid and the city halted negotiations after the plans fell through and Intrepid moved its operations to downtown San Diego. The City Council in 1994 set aside the 0.7-acre site in the Town Center for a theater space as part of the Encinitas Ranch Specific Plan, but it has sat vacant ever since, as several theater companies have attempted to gain tenancy at the location.

Issa meets with Solutions for Change residents years, who came here homeless, dependent, stuck, and are now employed, housed, healthy, (and) back in the community.” Riverside County has asked to have the program transplanted up there, as well as in El Cajon, with proposals in the works to replicate what’s being done here, according to Megison. “We call them ‘Solutionized-warriors,’” Megison said of the residents living at the Solutions for Change complex. “They have a deep passion to carve out a new life for their kids.”

VISTA — While more than a thousand of Rep. Darrell Issa’s constituents were a couple of miles down at the Jim Porter Recreation Center waiting for him to appear last week for a town hall meeting, the 49th District Congressman was instead at the Solutions for Change homeless shelter talking with a handful of the program’s selected residents. Earlier in the day, Issa (R-Calif.) did hold what’s been described as an impromptu town hall out front of his Vista office, where he spoke for a reported 90-minutes, addressing a number of issues ranging from healthcare reform to President Donald Trump’s recent executive orders on immigration. At the heart of the evening discussion, where about 15 residents seated in chairs arranged in a circle, talked informally with Issa, was the loss of grant money the homeless program sustained due to new rules imposed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the importance of having a safe and sober living arrangement and the lack of affordable living in the county. When the Congressman, who is back in his district this week during the Congressional recess, asked what the residents would like to see changed in Washington, D.C., there was a palpable silence. The majority of the residents at the meeting had gone through some sort of abuse — either domestic or drugs. And most had “comeback” stories that they told during the hour-long meeting. One of those was John, 41, a resident of the program for the past 20 months. He’d been in prison, has a family of five, and makes over the minimum wage, though he told Issa he wouldn’t be able to afford renting an apartment once out in the “real world.” He said he was grateful for the Solutions for Change program and the low rent associated with it. Each of the families in residence has the opportu-

nity to stay for 1,000 days at their apartment complex, according to Chris Megison, founder of Solutions for Change. It was early last year that Megison found out that their program would have to give a federal grant of $600,000 back after a rule change. Because the program didn’t want to accept active drug users on the property, Megison and Solutions for Change returned the grant in $100,000 increments. Giving that money back, however, forced the closure of one of their longest standing programs — the family shelter, which now sits empty, he said. To date, the program has about 300 families on the waiting list to move into the residency. “It’s so many families compared to what we’ve ever seen before,” Megison said. “I want to get the rule changed,” said Issa, who recommended the residents form a group to write letters and lobby the HUD secretary. “We don’t do earmarks,” said Issa. “We haven’t in a lot of years, but this is a group (Solutions for Change) that has earned grants many, many times. And so when they actually give back money from a grant because they refuse to deal with a rule that would’ve been detrimental

to this community, I want to get the rule rolled back. And then the grant should be considered in ordinary course.” Issa said he was supportive of programs to get people that are addicted to drugs or alcohol dry, adding that the program here is an environment where children are. “Many of these people got their children back as part of a reward for getting sober. And you can’t mix those two,” said Issa. To get the rule rolled back would be “huge,” Megison said. “But not just for the $600,000, because that frankly would help us, but it’s really about going forward. And we’re building…in Escondido, Oceanside and Carlsbad right now.” Having gone from helping 130 families per day to 240 families, and undergoing significant expansion, Megison said the money becomes even more important. “The federal government is a partner with Solutions, so it should remain that way if the funds are getting good results,” he said. Megison said that with the success of its program, Solutions for Change has saved taxpayers $49 million since they’ve opened back in 2000 by taking people off of welfare and food stamps. “The human impact is huge,” Megison added. “Because we’re talking 840 families and 2,400 kids in 17

Vista Town hall carries on without Issa By Ruarri Serpa

VISTA — Nearly 1,500 people swarmed a town hall meeting in Vista last night, hoping to express their concerns over health care with Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.). But Issa was a no-show, after weeks of protests outside his office calling on the Congressman to hold face-to-face meetings with his constituents. Nevertheless, dozens of residents delivered testimonials on how the Affordable Care Act helped them and their families. One woman said that her family experienced back-to-back fatal car crashes leaving them with expensive bills that would put a financial burden on anybody. “I’ve been in the hos-

pital wondering how this is all going to be paid for,” she said. Irma Salinas is a mother who said she had to purchase two insurance plans to get treatment for her daughter, who was born with disabilities. She was upset Issa declined to attend, and had hoped to ask him about people like her daughter. “First of all: Where are you?” Salinas said. “And what’s going to happen to people right now with pre-existing conditions?” The event sprang from a network of constituents and the various “Indivisible” groups around North County, but it was part of the #Fight4OurHealth TURN TO ISSA ON 10

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

something the specialists at MyHairTransplantMD are able to reconstruct. “It is common for us to see women who have had prior cosmetic work,” Wagner said. “While they have managed to fix one problem area, it can create another one.”

In addition to cosmetic surgery, extensive hair processing is another leading cause of hair loss in women. Bleaching, perming and even excessive blow drying can result in scalp and hair follicle damage. “We see a lot of women who have experienced hair loss due to

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

Come walk the walk in Solana Beach audit SOLANA BEACH — The city of Solana Beach is in the beginning stages of performing a study to make the Lomas Santa Fe Drive corridor more user-friendly and to improve safety for all modes of transportation including bicyclists, pedestrians (including school children), public transit riders and motorists. To accomplish

this, community walk audits will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 4. In an effort to engage the community in this process, the city, in conjunction with the consultant hired to lead the study, will hold a corridor walk audit to identify transportation issues and solutions along Lomas Santa Fe from Highway 101 to

Highland Drive. This walk audit will be conducted in four segments of the corridor and the community is invited to participate in this walk audit to help assess existing conditions, future needs, share ideas and voice concerns to the project team. Come and discuss opportunities to help improve driving, walking and biking

in the city of Solana Beach. The community walk audit will be broken into four segments from Cedros Avenue to Granados Avenue. Stevens Avenue to Interstate 5, Santa Helena to Via Mil Cumbres and Lomas Santa Fe Drive/Highland Drive. For more information, call (858) 720-2400 or visit ci.solana-beach.ca.us.


the community by building relationships. Farrar described it as a win-win situation. “Roger has gotten really good at going out and just bringing everybody together and rectifying some of

these situations,” Farrar said. “We’ve created a relationship and we’re really proud of that.” Following the presentation, RSF Association board President Fred Wasserman

thanked Farrar. “I think the board really needs to thank you and your staff for the great job you’re doing considering the number of those applications and projects,” Wasserman said.

sion and they need to work effectively together, so that would be number one,” she said The other recommendation was to have a standards-based discipline in the arts. “The state of California has established standards in the arts,” said Adams, adding how it was important to commit to those teachings while developing a scope

and sequence. “If you have that, I think you would see a tremendous difference because there would be some intention. The teachers would know what a child was getting in the arts from kindergarten through eighth grade, and that would be articulated all the way through.” Board member Marti Ritto shared that MUSE was currently not stan-

dards-based and she thought it was a critical component that they have not implemented at the school. “It needs to be implemented and needs to be standards-based so that we can actually track the development of our students,” she said. “These are not just fluffy subjects. These are literal academic pursuits and we need to treat them as such.”

poses President (Donald) Trump’s policies on immigration, health care, the use of executive orders, and the rise of “fake news.” “Darrell Issa is in bed with Donald Trump,” Ford said. In recent weeks, calls have been growing for Issa to hold in-person town halls. Protesters have gathered outside his office in Vista, and been vocal about Issa’s use of telephone town halls. They say he uses the calls as a way to control the audience and questions that he answers. Earlier on Tuesday, Issa spoke for 90 minutes to the demonstrators and a group

of supporters who gathered outside his office for an impromptu town hall, and answered their questions about healthcare, Planned Parenthood and the President’s conflicts of interest. Issa declined to attend the town hall at night, saying he had a previous engagement, and on Tuesday night he met with residents from Solutions for Change, a nonprofit group that provides jobs and housing to homeless families. Issa’s Democratic opponent, Doug Applegate attended the town hall, however, and greeted voters outside the venue. “I came without any

agenda,” Applegate said. “I thought, ‘I’m happy that I’m here — why don’t I stay outside talking to people.’” In the November election, Applegate led Issa in the San Diego County portion of the district, but in southern Orange County, the part of the 49th District that more heavily favored Issa, ultimately gave him the victory. Applegate has already promised to run again in 2018, however, and compared the energized voters at the town hall with his campaign last fall. “There’s lots of energy — it feels like October,” he said.


Farrar shared that their senior planner, Roger Scherer, who is championing these cases was making a positive impact in



dations Adams offered for the MUSE program was to strengthen the departmental organization so more team effectiveness could occur. “There are four teachers, but there’s a lot of teaching artists and they’re doing so many things. They need to have a collective vi-



campaign, backed by labor and health care advocacy groups. The use of the Jim Porter Recreational Center for Tuesday’s town hall was paid for by the Service Employees International Union. A few people who said they were Republicans also spoke at the town hall, and were concerned that changes to the ACA would cause more people to use the emergency room for help. David Ford, of Oceanside, said he was a disengaged Republican before this election, but he op-

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

with recovery and recuperative care, reducing public costs for incarceration and hospitalization. Anglea says the Center, which may range from 15,000 to 30,000 square feet, would ideally have 75 beds, and once built, would be the first of its kind in the region. As homeless programs and shelters require sobriety upon entry, substance abuse prevents many homeless residents from receiving shelter or other services they need. For all the steps in the right direction, to task before us, as a community, is daunting. Anglea mentioned that data on the region’s homeless population has improved, and we know now that more than 17,000

individuals accessed homeless services in 2016 from more than 200 service providers in San Diego County. Of those 17,000-plus individuals, about 10,000 were homeless for the first time. Carlsbad doesn’t have the large homeless population Oceanside does, nor the population spike which probably necessitated Oceanside’s town hall forum, but we nonetheless have a vulnerable population that needs our attention and our support to get on the road to permanent housing. Perhaps it’s time for Carlsbad to host a town hall on homelessness this year — what do you think? It’s got my vote, and I’d definitely attend. Vince Vasquez is an economist based in Torrey Pines.

Introducing DOH! Cookie Dough!


irst off, could there be a better name for cookie dough? I think not. But then again, I am a still somewhat obsessed with the long running show, their top notch writing, and it still makes me laugh. And I’m thinking Homer licks the plate every chance he gets. So DOH! is another Leucadia Farmers Market discovery. They lengthening lines over the past few months piqued my curiosity. When I finally did have a conversation with proprietors Annalise Brolaski and Nick Hart I found that these two smart young entrepreneurs have already made significant progress beyond the farmer’s market and are well on their way to building something big. It’s a story worth telling and yes, their DOH is all that…raw or cooked! Some highlights from my conversation with Annalise below.

around food. For science class in 6th grade, I remember making a model of a single cell out of Jell-O, with various candies and ramen noodles. Then in 9th grade, I made a model of my art teacher out of homemade rice crispy treats! From my very first job at a little Hawaiian restaurant in Encinitas, I’ve always worked in the food industry. I didn’t figure out that I wanted to go to culinary school until I had a culinary class in high school in my senior year in 2012. In 2014 I graduated from The Art Institute in San Diego as the Outstanding Baking & Pastry Graduate. I then went on to work at a few restaurants, and decided that I wanted to do my own thing. I did my own catering, as well as provided desserts for a couple restaurants around town, and then most recently started DOH! with my best friend and boyfriend, Nick Hart, this past October 2016.

Tell me about growing up and your early culinary/baking influences in the home. Did you have any culinary related jobs? I’ve been cooking my entire life. My grandma taught me all the basics of baking when I was a kid, from not overworking the dough for a light and fluffy scone, to the creaming method for simple shortbread cookies. I’ve always loved baking. Even my DOH! is a brilliant name with school projects would revolve unlimited marketing poten-

tial. Where did this idea come from? Nick is the genius behind the name! I was skeptical at first, but it really stuck with us! Are you a Simpson’s fan? If so, what are your top three characters? First, DOH! is not affiliated with The Simpsons or FOX, however, who isn’t a Simpson’s fan? We’ve been watching the Simpson since we were kids, the first three seasons being our favorite of them all. If I had to pick my top three characters I’d say: Bart, Lisa, and Homer of course! Back to the DOH here, tell me about the product development and your decision to leave out eggs and dairy. Nick and I were out to dinner at our favorite Thai restaurant (this is important, because all of our good ideas come over Thai food). I had been overworking myself doing my catering business alone, it was too much for one person to handle. So he suggested I re-think my entire game-plan, create something that could be sold in grocery

stores, with a shelf life so I wouldn’t be constantly wasting what didn’t sell, and having to make everything for basically free. I had recently been experimenting with vegan and gluten-free desserts. It was something challenging that I was interested in. I’m a pretty health conscious person, very conscious about organics, and non-GMO’s, food labeling, and healthy diets in general. So I’ve seen the push for better quality foods and how people are becoming much for conscious of what they put in their bodies. I read a statistic about my generation, the Millennial and that one in three are either vegetarian or vegan, and two in three are open minded about alternatives to animal products. So I believe that the future of food is plant-based, without a doubt! As far as the decision to make DOH! gluten-free, about 1 percent of the entire population really does have an autoimmune disease called Coeliac. If you think about it, that’s 1 in every 100 people, that’s really a lot of people! Nick has a little cousin who has Coeliac, and he gets really sick if he has anything contaminated with gluten. So though it may be a diet fad for some people, it really is something that is important for a lot of people to be able to eat without getting sick. So what are the basic ingredients? We use just eight simple ingredients: Certified gluten-free Oat flour, organic coconut oil, almond milk, vegan brown sugar, semi-sweet vegan chocolate chips, baking soda, salt, and pure vanilla. All are non-GMO, and we’d like to be all-organic in the future. We use no preservatives and nothing artificial. TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON 21

out of Washington State from 14 appellations, the largest being the Yakima Valley with its 13,500 wine grape acres. Washington is the northern-most wine country in the U.S. with over 16 hours of sun in the critical summer growing season. If you drew a line around the globe, from the middle of Washington, it would travel between Bordeaux and Burgundy in France — both legendary wine countries for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay, a direct link of new world vineyards with old world tannin and acid structure. This is America’s second largest wine region with over 50,000 acres under vine and 40 varietals led by Cabernet Sauvignon. With this backdrop, Washington wines, with newly won respect in the wine world, came to San Diego to say hello. They have done so before, but this year there were more wineries and their two bestknown brands, Chateau Ste. Michelle and Columbia Crest, were in attendance. I have written a lot about these two wineries and their accomplishments. They have a knack for marketing lovely tasting wines at value prices, and their talent for premium wines is up there with the best that the state has to offer. In 2009, Wine Spectator shocked the wine world by awarding the Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 vintage ($25), “the No. 1 wine in the world.” It was the first time a wine from Washington State had received this honor. At the road show, Senior Director of Winemaking, Juan Munoz Oca, introduced, Intrinsic ($19.99), the newest wine in the collection. My personal favorite of the group is a maximum value H3 Les Chevaux Red Blend from the Horse Heaven Hills appellation ($9). The current vintage is 2013, a banner year for West Coast wines. La Chevaux is a French word for horses. CircuTURN TO TASTE OF WINE ON 21

Breathing room Nature Calls By Jamie Higgins


ife moves so fast that sometimes it’s hard to catch my breath. I know I’m lucky to live in the land of fun and sun, where there’s always something to do and 60 degrees is considered cold. Still, sometimes I need to ignore my To Do list (it’ll be there when I get back), step off the proverbial hamster wheel and recharge. Those are the times that I seek out nature. It’s cheaper than a therapist and good for my waistline, but be warned — I have found spending time in nature to be highly addictive. When I need my nature fix, I need look no further than my own backyard. San Diego County is a hiker’s paradise. With scenic beaches, wetlands, grasslands, chaparral, riparian corridors, Oak woodlands, deserts and even real mountains, the variety of landscapes is incredible. I’m not exaggerating — we actually live in the most biologically rich county in the continental United States, according to The Nature Conservancy. This means that whatever scenery floats your boat, we’ve got it here in spades. This time of year, I like to head east. Northeast County is home to a plethora of trails, many of which are more enjoyable to do in the cool winter months. Some of my favorite walking and hiking spots include Daley Ranch in Escondido, Palomar Mountain, Volcan Mountain outside Julian, Potato Chip Rock on the Mount Woodson Trail in Poway, Cedar Creek Falls in Ramona and Iron Mountain. I will save the wonders of Palomar Mountain for another column. I really enjoy the 5.6mile Iron Mountain Trail. This well-marked and well-travelled trail has a moderate 1,000-foot eleva-

tion gain. In other words, it’s relatively easy but still challenging enough to make you want to high-five and feel like you worked off the donut you ate. It takes two to three hours to complete and the trail winds through a scrubby chaparral landscape with great views. Comments from people online suggest doing the hike at sunrise — it’s supposed to be spectacular and worth the effort. I’d also recommend doing the hike in the early morning or on a cool, cloudy day, as this trail has virtually zero shade. You can’t miss the trailhead, it’s clearly marked by a Wrought iron sign and a large parking lot off Highway 67, with free parking. A number of people had dogs with them on leash. Just remember to bring plenty of water for you and your furry friends. For more information about these hikes and others, check out Jerry Schad’s, “Afoot & Afield in San Diego County,” considered to be “the bible of San Diego hiking.” A great online source for information about local hikes is the San Diego Hikers Association’s website at sandiegohikers.com/ Lace up those running shoes or hiking boots and I hope to see you on the trail!

Sports Before hauling off to LA, Rivers says bye at Hall of Champions event

sports talk jay paris


t was a salute to the champions. Then Philip Rivers spoke and it became a salute to San Diego. Few evenings are more enjoyable than the annual Salute to the Champions dinner, which enshrines the latest class into the Breitbard Hall of Fame. Three athletic greats with San Diego roots were enshrined on Tuesday: former Chargers center Nick Hardwick, ex-basketball star Candice Wiggins and Johnny Ritchey, the first African American player in the Pacific Coast league when playing for the Padres. But there was more. Bob Breitbard, the keen sportsman who founded the Hall of Champions, loved to spread the sugar around in the form of recognition. While easy to pat a well-known on the back, Breitbard was just as concerned about the amateur and prep stars, of which there are so many in San Diego County. That’s why before Hardwick and his class were introduced teenagers from all sports had their turn on the stage. With state and CIF San Diego Section titles are on their resumes, those given a fist bump were: Torrey Pines boys golf, Cathedral Catholic football, boys cross country and girls volleyball and others. Others honored included Cardiff’s Kraig Chiles (soccer) and the World Team Tennis San Diego Aviators, who play their home matches at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa.

Then Rivers seized the stage. He did so while accepting a plaque he was giving as well. “It’s always an honor when you receive an award, especially from my hometown city,’’ Rivers said. His message was as clear as the Los Angeles air is murky. Like everyone not named Dean Spanos, Rivers recognized how special a place our locale is. Saying “adios” isn’t easy. That’s why Rivers’ voice cracked. That’s why his upper lip quivered. That’s why his eyes were misty and, to be sure, there were no onions on anyone’s plate. But others felt tears welling, too. Here was an NFL star explaining how difficult it is to uproot his family, career and point it some 100 miles north. The Chargers are moving, but Rivers, an Alabama native, made it clear what remains in his blood. “I hope you’ll always see me as a San Diego Charger,’’ he stressed. Hardwick followed Rivers. “Now you know what it’s like to have him in the huddle,’’ said Hardwick, a former center. Hardwick was the center-of-attention on Tuesday. But he shared the spotlight with one of his closest friends, a quarterback whose sincerity never misses its mark. Rivers, with eight kids at home and San Diego no longer his professional home, could have skipped the event. Then again, that wouldn’t sit right with the classy Rivers. “Out of respect to the Hall of Champions and knowing what it means — this is the 71st one,’’ Rivers said. “I never take any TURN TO PARIS ON 23

SURFERS SCORE Five years ago, a “ragtag” group of high school surfers from The Grauer School donned competition jerseys for the first time, piled their boards in a heap on the sand next to the other schools’ and entered the world of competitive scholastic surfing. It took the fledgling team two full seasons to capture their first team win. In their fifth season, the Grauer surf team finished off the 2016-17 season with an undefeated record of 5-0, placing it atop Division 4 of the Scholastic Surf Series (SSS). Courtesy photo

Clay named top 50 youth golf instructor By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Matthew Clay, general manager of the Del Mar Golf Center, has been named one of the top 50 youth instructors in the world by U.S. Kids Golf. This year there were about 350 applicants for the annual award that recognizes the most outstanding teachers for young golfers. It is the first time Clay’s name was submitted for the honor, which he said is not his alone. “It’s a great reflection on our whole team and the commitment we have to developing junior golf and being involved with our community,” said Clay, who has been teaching at the center across from the Del Mar Fairgrounds for 10 years. Winners are selected based on their experience with young golfers, time devoted to teaching youth, program innovation and creativity, parental involvement, communication and overall effort to grow the game. “One of the cool things about our program is we utilize all seven of our golf professionals,” Clay said. “We also use two athletic trainers that are youth development specialists. “A good portion of our program is athletic development along with golf development,” he added. “It imparts better fundamental moving skills — in particular skipping, hopping, jumping, shuffling, things like that — that are the building blocks of any movement patterns.” Clay said the training also incorporates game-based play. For example, dodgeball, using large skill-balls, is part of every session. “Most programs in the past have been traditionally technique-based and swing-based,” he said. “But kids — especially younger ones — have a shorter attention span so practicing for an hour might not be quite as realistic. We try to create as many games as we can that allow learning opportunities. “We can see the increase in their athleticism and it’s fun,” he added. “Our main goal is that golf is always fun.” Additionally, the Academy at Del Mar Golf Center features a parent night during which moms and dads

“get to do what the kids do,” Clay said. Each weekly 90-minute session, open to youngsters from kindergarten age to 13, is evenly split between golf training and athletic development. Class size ranges from 12 to 20 participants depending on staff availability. Based on a grading system, each athlete must pass a proficiency test every few months to move to the next level. Golf abilities are indicated by hat color and fitness abilities are indicated by wristband color. Sessions run throughout the school year, with summer camps available in June, July and August. This year the U.S. Kids Golf instructor awards were given to professionals from 26 states, Canada, England and Kenya who work at public, private and municipal facilities. “These coaches are honored as

more than instructors,” said Dan Van Horn, the organization’s founder and president. “They create outstanding opportunities for young golfers to learn in a fun and rewarding environment that instills a love for the game and engages the entire family. “Their ability to connect with students and fully engage them in the learning process sets them apart,” he added. For Clay, it’s about more than golf. “The cool thing is we get to be role models,” he said. “Golf just happens to be the vehicle we have to be a positive influence. … We’re fortunate to be able to do what we do.” In other accolades, the Del Mar Golf Center was selected as one of the top 50 standalone ranges for 2016 by the Golf Range Association of America.

CARLSBAD — The world can be a funny place, depending on how it’s looked at — and who is doing the looking. A cartoonist, Scott Chambers, armed with a pen, paper and a desk, sets down every day with his sole intent: to amuse. “If they’re not funny, then to me, it hasn’t achieved its mission,” said Chambers, a longtime cartoon contributor to The Coast News’ op-ed page. It’s been more than 15 years since his cartoons began appearing in the newspaper. He began drawing while attending college in Washington State and became a professional cartoonist in the early ‘90s after he sold his first single-panel cartoon to National Review. Before that, the Carlsbad resident had borne a wide perspective of culture having traveled, worked and lived around the world. With degrees in elementary education, history and school administration, Chambers spent six years working on Indian reservations, which proved to be an eye-opener, he said, because of the culture clashes he witnessed. For years he worked and lived in New Delhi, Saudi Arabia, China and Norway before coming back to the States. During those times, though, he continued his drawings, but admitted it wasn’t a lot. By 1993, Chambers was back to drawing cartoons regularly, trying to find his style and get published. He found his style almost by default, he explained. At first, he tried complicated drawings, but those were too time consuming for him to do. “I had to sort of settle

mixed with a Chihuahua, the two do help with the fleshing out of cartoons if needed — one as a sounding board, the other a character that sporadically makes appearances, respectively. To date, he’s done about 7,000 cartoons. That means a lot of ideas. Some come from contrived sources as watching the news, but the best ones are the ideas that just pop into his head, he explained. “The best ones are the ones that just pop into your head, whole,” he said. “I don’t think that’s something you have control over. You can

make up cartoons if you sit and think about it, but those aren’t usually the best ones.” He recalled one of his drawings that became an early viral hit as the internet began to hit its stride. The cartoon, Chambers described, depicted people lined up at two booths. One booth had a sign that read, “Unpleasant Truths,” the other booth had a sign that read, “Comforting lies.” The booth offering the unpleasant truths didn’t have any one in line, and there’s a really, really long line at the TURN TO CARTOONIST ON 21

Cartoonist Scott Chambers works on a single-panel cartoon at his Carlsbad home. He’s drawn 7,000 cartoons, which have appeared in national magazines, books and newspapers, including The Coast News. Courtesy photo

for something fairly simple, in order to have it work,” he said. Chambers took influence from Sam Gross (a regular cartoon contributor to the New Yorker magazine). He described Gross as “not a great artist but a great cartoonist.” Chambers is too quick to point out he’s no artist, either. And while the New Yorker is still a goal for him to have his work published in, the unassuming Chambers, who does cartooning fulltime now, said it’s just a part of his life. “I’m not driven, as a career matter, to see it become something very large,” he said. “On the other hand, if people would buy my books, that would be nice.” He remembers fondly the moment his first nationally published work appeared in print. Standing out front of his mailbox, he flipped through the publication and

stopped on the page where his cartoon was, feeling a sense of satisfaction. He still has that publication. Early in his cartooning career he framed his published works and set them on his desk — a little bit out of pride, a little bit as a spur of encouragement to do more. But now, all of his published materials fill the drawers of file cabinets. After well more than a decade of cartooning, Chambers doesn’t need that spur of encouragement anymore — and there were getting to be too many frames on his desk, he joked. Chambers tries to complete one cartoon a day, which could take from beginning to end, about two hours — that could also include the idea part of it, too.

Nine mom-and-pop shops are listed on the Donut Trail map, and to celebrate the trail’s first anniversary, donut devotees can earn jazzy t-shirts by filling their donut passport (available at all shops) with stamps from every store.

housing to women, men and children in need. Community Resource Center is a North County provider of domestic violence prevention programs. Every month, the center re-

ceives more than 150 crisis calls on its domestic violence hotline. In 2016, the center received 1,909 such calls, during which CRC directly provided resources and support and directed victims to critical assistance. It is tragic that this need is so great in our communities. Through new funding provided by the California Office of Emergency Services, Community Resource Center is expanding its housing services to include additional Transitional Housing apartments and direct rental assistance to families impacted by domestic violence. “Housing is critical in achieving stability for families who have been impacted and uprooted because of domestic violence. We appreciate Community HousingWorks and the California Office of Emergency Services for their partnership, enabling CRC to provide tangible support to families during this critical moment in their lives,” said Rebecca Nussbaum, CRC’s associate director of programs. Community HousingWorks is a nonprofit that provides safe, quality homes that people can afford; builds healthy communities where people can thrive; and opens up opportunities for people to achieve their dreams.

That’s the humor,” he said. “That’s one of my favorite ones.” Editorial cartoonists have the modern day role of the medieval court jester, he explained. “It’s sort of keeping the people in power reminded that they’re humans,” he said. But Chambers was quick to point out that he doesn’t see himself as an editorial cartoonist. He’s a cartoonist. Editorial cartoons, he explained, have a short life span, but cartoons on the human condition — there’s no real time limit on those. They’re keepers. His sense of humor comes as dry as the dust, he

Seasalt Seafood Bistro said. He doesn’t know where it comes from, he said, adding that his dad had a dry sense of humor, though. His 90-year-old mom has a sense of humor, he explained, though she just wants to laugh. “So she’ll find humor in almost anything.” Most people, he added, wouldn’t have said his father was a very funny guy because his humor was so dry. And sometimes when he made a joke it would go right past whomever he told it to. “I’d know he was joking, he’d know he was joking,” Chambers said. “Humor’s a funny deal,” he said. “A very personal, idiosyncratic sort of thing.” “If something makes me chuckle, then I think there’s a cartoon there,” he said. “There isn’t always. But usually if I chuckle I think there’s a cartoon in that.” Politics is another story, however. “I don’t really think pol-

itics is very funny — every now and then there’s something that comes up that’s pretty obviously funny, but most of the time what you see people doing is sort of contrived by itself. It’s the same joke over and over,” he said. Though as with anything else, cartoons can have the power to offend. “You can’t not offend,” Chambers said. “It’s not possible to not offend because almost anything you do, in almost any field, someone will find offensive. So the whole idea that you can have free speech as long as it’s not offensive is self-negating to me. You have to admit, if you’re going to have free speech, that people will be offended. “I’m not a great fan of the idea of censorship. Even things that offend me I don’t suggest should not be printed,” he said. Chambers has published three books of his work and are available online at SHChambers.com.

Help for struggling students now available on the Ranch! If you are the parent of a smart but struggling student looking for hope and real solutions, you know there has to be a better future for your child than this constant challenge with learning and attention. WE CAN HELP. Lynda Detweiler-Newcomb, M.A., CCC, is the founder of The Encinitas Learning Center. She has provided a wealth of practical therapeutic services to the North County community for over twenty years and is excited to bring her successful learning system to Rancho Santa Fe located at 6037 La Granada. Lynda’s philosophy reflects her belief that “no student wants to fail”. Lynda can identify why your student is struggling and what to do next. She doesn’t provide coping strategies or a “modification” approach. She and the ELC staff help develop the skills your students need to do their schoolwork on their own. They can show you how to stop your child from falling further and further behind by building foundational skills. This revolutionary learning system builds a new neural expressway that once was like a dirt road. The focus is to significantly improve neurological speed of processing through a proprietary

evaluation and remediation process (not available in schools or through traditional tutoring). This training alters the brain’s plasticity such that it is forever processing information faster. ELC works with students exhibiting various learning and attention challenges including: DYSLEXIA: Usually co-existing with Auditory Processing Disorder or Visual Processing Deficit: AUDITORY PROCESSING DISORDER: Specifically diagnosed and intensively treated 1:1 (one teacher:one student). Functional reading scores show measureable improvement of 1.5 years in as little as 3 months! Encinitas Learning Center collaborates with Dr. Elizabeth Christensen O.D. who treats identified Visual Deficits. ATTENTION DEFICIT & EXECUTIVE FUNCTION: Improvement in focus and memory using researched-based science and computer based technology. SOCIAL SKILLS and PLAY STORMING: A revolutionary new approach for Spectrum through ADHD to Gifted students cope with peers,

school demands, and family dynamics. Reflective Parenting Training helps to incorporate a whole family feedback system working with the ELC team in understanding better ways to promote optimum success through enlightened communication, self-advocacy, and social skills in Elementary – Middle – High School Grades. Once core skills are established, we can identify and fill in gaps in learning using California Curriculum Standards. “Lynda has the knowledge that allows your student to break through these challenges” states Khalid Thomas, the parent of Chris who is now reading for the first time.
