RANCHO SANTA FE — A Rancho Santa Fe community-wide survey, championed by the Rancho Santa Fe Association (RSFA) last year, revealed that 73 percent of Covenant members voted on roundabouts being installed along the Paseo Delicias intersections of Via de la Valle, El Montevideo/La Valle Plateada, and El Camino del Norte. Director of Planning at the RSFA, Tom Farrar, provided a quick update about the progress being made, which included a projected construction date beginning as early as next year. “The county has accepted the funding required to complete the EIR, (environmental impact report),” he said, adding how staff is working very closely with the county. The funding Far-


$60,000 the Board agreed to give the county at its February 2016 board of directors meeting. The monies would enable the county to proceed with an updated and certified EIR. The board became aware of this need after the RSFA received a letter from the county’s program manager on Jan. 28. In the letter, the county conveyed how they were requesting $60,000 from the Association since they did not have the funds in their budget to update the EIR. The total cost was $75,000 and the county would cover $15,000. Farrar went on to say that the county was in the process of filing an EIR and it was estimated that the completed date could land at the end of May or quite possibly the first TURN TO ROUNDABOUTS ON A17

Vibrancy Committee updates board RSFA signs ‘Letter of Intent’ with Hotwire Communications By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Over the last several months, the Village Vibrancy Committee also referred to as the VIBE, has organized a bi-monthly series of pop-up Saturday events at the “Village Green” to help bring the community together in Rancho Santa Fe. A subcommittee of the Village Revitalization Task Force, the efforts of the VIBE also included collecting information from the community and Village merchants. Rancho Santa Fe resident Stacy Pennington, who is also the owner of SLP Urban Planning, has helped navigate this revitalization effort. At a May 5 Rancho Santa Fe Association (RSFA) board of directors meeting, she provided an update on their efforts, as well as a detailed explanation over permitting issues, when a Covenant member called into question those events. Pennington told the board and members that her team was finalizing a report for the Association that should be ready by June for their review. Pennington explained that the pop-up events, which also included partnering with the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe for seasonal festivities, were one layer of community engagement. Other layers were collecting data. Since its inception, VIBE has held seven Village

And projected monthly fees are expected to be $129.99 for GB Internet, $199.99 for GB dedicated Internet; and, $299.99 for 10 GB Internet. Hotwire Communications is also investing around $5 million into the project. As part of the proposed plan, RSFA will “share” from the retail gross revenues, which will range from 50 percent for Internet, 5 percent for cable television, and 20 percent for both phone service and other services. In addition to the LOI signing, the RSFA board agreed to the next phase in pledging a capital of $50,000 to begin the engineering design process and final construction layout. However, one of the conditions needed for final project approval is a community-wide vote. According to RSFA board director and member of the RSFA technology committee, Mike Licosati, the idea of this project started more than a year ago with their technical ad-

Vibrancy Committee meetings, taken part in multiple Village Task Force meetings and championed a debut stakeholder roundtable. “This was the first ever stakeholder roundtable and it was pretty awesome to pull together almost all of the stakeholders in Rancho Santa Fe which we did in January,” Pennington said.

“In one room, around one table, they talked about things that related to community engagement. It really opened up portals of communications.” According to Pennington, 65 stakeholders have been engaged; and, over period of seven months, held 14 Village gatherings. Nonprofits such as the RSF

Garden Club and The Country Friends also took part in these pop-up events and were able to reconnect with community members. While permitting the Village Green was touched upon, longtime RSF resident Rory Kendall was present for the meeting and wantTURN TO VIBRANCY ON A17

RANCHO SANTA FE — Following a comprehensive presentation and introduction of executive team members for a proposed fiber-to-the-home network at a May 5 board of directors meeting, the Rancho Santa Fe Association (RSFA) has officially signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Hotwire Communications. Getting to this point has been a challenging feat for the RSFA technology committee due to low density in the ranch and other topographical challenges — but it’s done. The board of directors approved the LOI with Hotwire to build a community-owned fiber optic network ranging from 1 gigabit (GB) Internet service to a 10 gigabit (GB) Internet option to every home in the Covenant. The presentation outlined how this would be one of the fastest technologies available to a community in the nation, if not the world. Also highlighted was that the project construction is estimated to cost $13.5 million and the RSFA will absorb all of it; and, the RSFA will own the network after a final regulatory review.

Playing ‘The Woman Card’ By Laura Finley

Key to voter turnout: Exciting candidates, contests California Focus By Thomas D. Elias


n election after election, California officialdom has been frustrated by low levels of interest among eligible voters. Just when they were beginning to feel like they had tried almost everything, the obvious solutions to the problem appeared spontaneously: Give eligible Californians exciting, meaningful contests and they will turn out. When they feel their votes matter, they will fill out ballots, either at home or in polling booths. That’s why, instead of wringing hands and whining about irresponsible voters not performing their important duty, all of a sudden this spring state election officials are worried about seeing too many voters. That’s the clear upshot of an appeal by Secretary of State Alex Padilla, California’s top election official, for more money to stage the June primary. In April, he warned of a turnout “surge” and asked Gov. Jerry Brown and the Legislature for an additional $32 million to pay for more and fatter election guides for the November election, plus added funds to help counties cope with an anticipated flood of voters both then and in June. The two presidential nomination races have produced massive turnouts so far this year across the county, and Padilla realizes California will be the same — in fact it may see a higher percentage increase than anywhere else. One reason is that in recent pre-Donald Trump, pre-Bernard Sanders days, there was little excitement or pizzazz in the state’s elections for 10 years, since Arnold Schwarzenegger’s last run for governor in 2006. Even then there wasn’t much of a contest, as Dem-

ocratic rival Phil Angelides essentially got swamped. Likewise, there was virtually no contest in 2014, when turnout dropped almost 25 percent from the presidential election voting levels of 2012. In that vote, Brown easily beat his Republican rival Neel Kashkari, a former Federal Reserve banker who has since taken a new role in the national central bank. The extreme low 2014 turnout did two things, causing the number of signatures required for putting initiatives onto the ballot to drop by more than a quarter and pushing offi-

Govern used California to win the 1972 Democratic nomination — no California presidential vote has meant much, until this year’s. The rare happenstance of no candidate being sufficiently appealing to seal a party nomination until the very last day of the primary season — if then — is the reason California’s vote suddenly emerged as important. That hadn’t happened in 44 years. So leave the state’s presidential primary in June and California will mostly likely wander another 40 years in the desert of irrelevancy. Not every nominating

For another, unique personalities like Trump and Sanders don’t come along in every election cycle. cialdom to consider desperate measures. That low vote is behind a current plan to automatically register any U.S. citizen getting a drivers’ license as a voter. It also explains proposals to allow online voting, despite the hackable history of allegedly secure computer systems from credit cards to government records and national security secrets. The real way to spur turnout isn’t anything risky like that. Rather, it’s to make elections meaningful. California legislators could begin by moving the state’s presidential primary up permanently to a slot just after New Hampshire. True, other states won’t like that, because candidates would have to spend time in California rather than the much smaller South Carolina or Minnesota or Tennessee, all among states that voted this year either in mid-February or early March. It’s long been a situation of the tail wagging the dog, as for the last 44 years — since George Mc-

season will be as exciting as this one: For one thing, the White House is about to be vacated by its incumbent resident, so both parties are nominating now. For another, unique personalities like Trump and Sanders don’t come along in every election cycle. The implications of all this for routine elections around California are also clear. Match exciting candidates against each other and potential voters will become interested enough to become regular voters. Allow elections to be virtually uncontested, as many have been, and interest will wane. The same when voters get the sense that certain candidates appear to be anointed. The bottom line: When voters feel their ballots matter, they will make casting them a priority. When they don’t feel that way, voters won’t bother. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

The “woman card.” It’s so much nonsense. Donald Trump is merely the latest to accuse a woman of playing identity politics because she, well, actually discussed the fact that the U.S. still has much to improve in terms of gender equality. Trump alleges that Clinton is discussing women’s issues so she can win the votes of women. The nerve of her, trying to win the support of more than 50 percent of the population! It’s like she’s running for the highest office in the country, or something. Clinton’s response was terrific: “If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in.” Other responses to Trump’s comments bothered me, though. Elizabeth Warren said that Trump “wears the sexism out front for everyone to see,” which is undeniably true. More than just one man’s sexism, though, the whole affair is a stark reminder that we really need to change the conversation when it comes to gender. And, doing so has to go beyond attacking people for the same things women abhor — emphasizing our looks

more than our words. For instance, Warren made fun of Trump’s hair in her response to his comments. There’s no need to play that same game; his remarks would be no more palatable were he to shave his head or sport a mullet. Likewise, Clinton’s recognition of the importance of equal pay would mean no less were she a supermodel. Too often, advocates of gender equality are marginalized because of how they appear. It is way past time that we worry about someone’s actions, not the package in which they are wrapped. Feminists come in so many varieties, and their work shouldn’t be trivialized because someone doesn’t like their voice or pantsuit or because of the antiquated notion that men can’t be feminists. Likewise, advocacy for gender equality should not be marginalized because the proponent happens to be attractive or even sexy, as is often the case when female celebrities like Beyonce speak out. Similarly, when we disagree with a sexist remark, like those made by Trump, we have to resist the urge to comment on his appearance, as it also shifts the focus and entrenches us into the same duel mentality.

It’s unbelievable that issues affecting all of us are even still called “women’s issues.” In this patriarchal society, labeling something a woman’s issue reinforces the same binary way of thinking about gender that produces the problem in the first place. Like Gloria Steinem argued decades ago in her classic piece “If Men Could Menstruate,” shifting who is the oppressor or the oppressed does not challenge structural inequality. Birth control and reproductive freedom, for instance, are not “women’s issues,” they are concerns for anyone who wants to (or does not want to) have children, not about males or females. Paid family leave is about families, regardless of the gender of both parents. Domestic violence is not a women’s issue, it’s a public health concern that costs the country an estimated $8.3 billion annually. These are issues of justice and of human rights. But, it will be impossible to change the way we view these problems until we stop using the same tactics that the sexists use.

Letters to the Editor Time to replace Encinitas’ representative on SANDAG Board? The city’s representative to the SANDAG Board, Deputy Mayor Lisa Shaffer, makes no secret that the City Council vote on March 30 to abandon the Rail Trail San Elijo Avenue alignment in favor of Coast Highway 101 was a mistake. While fellow council members Catherine Blakespear and Tony Kranz were persuaded by the numerous changes in the plan and by extensive organized community opposition to reconsider their positions. Shaffer was the sole vote against the community’s re-


quest to preserve the Cardiff rail corridor. Shaffer’s opposition is clear and continuing, but as representative to SANDAG, she must persuade the SANDAG Board and staff that the March 30 change of direction was needed and must work to resolve related funding issues with the Board. But how persuasive is one’s argument when you have made it clear you really don’t believe it’s the right course? As the City Public Works Director Glenn Pruim points out, SANDAG is concerned about the city’s decision making on the project and the risk of another council change of

mind. How confident can SANDAG feel based on the assurances from the losing vote on a 4-to-1 decision? Undoubtedly Shaffer will argue for the city’s revised position to the best of her ability, but it is, of course, contrary to her stated belief. Is this the best advocacy for the city and is it reasonable to expect our representative to compromise her judgment? Perhaps it is time to put the city’s interest first and for Shaffer to step down as SANDAG representative.

Governing Documents Committee explains the proposed revisions By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — In an attempt to hear the needs of Covenant members, the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s Governing Documents Committee held a meeting to discuss its proposed revisions to its articles and bylaws. The April 27 meeting was well attended and held at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. Leading the meeting was chair of the Governing Documents Committee, Fred Wasserman. Including Wasserman, other committee members include Kris Charton, Allen Finkelson, Mike Licosati, Judge David Moon, and John Blakely. In attendance were Charton, Finkelson, and Licosati. Wasserman told his fellow Covenant members that the committee was very serious regarding the proposed revisions and the process. They began the task nine months ago. He also encouraged members to submit their comments in writing for the committee’s review. “The committee members want to get the changes to articles and bylaws right. So if the process takes longer, so be it,” said Wasserman, adding how the committee was independent of the RSFA board. Originally, the proposed amendments were to go out in tandem with upcoming June election. However, with revisions still underway the new prospected date is after July. Wasserman went on to explain that the RSFA is governed by a hierarchy of documents which include the Davis-Stirling Act, CA Corporations Code, RSF Protective Covenant, RSFA Articles of Incorporation, RSFA Bylaws and RSFA Rules and Regulations. According to Wasserman, the RSF Protective Covenant was put in place when the Association was born in 1927. Considered a

comprehensive document, it has been amended several times. The goal of the committee was to make certain that any changes and/or amendments would not be in conflict with the document hierarchy. Wasserman glossed over the RSFA history adding, “You need know where you have been in order to know where you are going.” Bylaws were first amended in 1950. And since that time, Wasserman said, they have been amended 35 more times since the adoption. In 2006, 19 material changes were made to the amendments. “And the last amendment to the articles was in 2014,” he said, noting how it was Article VI, Section 2 and was done by the Board. During the meeting, much time was spent discussing property owner of record voting rights. Finkelson wanted members to know that if the revisions are approved by members, then every property owner will get two ballots and two votes. And that also includes homes that are in a trust. “Every property will be treated exactly the same. We don’t care how it’s owned. It’s not fair to treat properties in a differential way,” Wasserman said. Currently, sole proper-

ty owners are receiving one vote and properties owned by spouses are receiving two votes. The goal is to afford every property owner with equal voting rights. “We are not taking anything away from you,” Wasserman said. According to a preliminary analysis, there are 1,745 eligible voters and the current voting number is at 2,112. If revisions are approved, the potential of votes could swell considerably. Wasserman said while the committee’s proposed revisions include complying with Davis-Stirling and CA Corporations Code, some other tasks included eliminating inconsistencies in the articles, bylaws and laws, simplifying the registration process, and removing the nominating committee. Also discussed during the meeting were RSFA director qualifications and addressing the issue of a potential “director removal.” The dialogue surrounded whether or not to give the RSFA board a right in such “director removal” in the event the individual was no longer a member in good standing. Others members chimed in on whether or not a director should remain if they no longer lived in the Covenant. The committee told those in attendance that members still have the right to call for a special meeting for the removal of a director. According to Finkelson, the process would begin with a petition of 100 member signatures. “We are not changing that at all,” Finkelson said. “Membership will always retain the right to remove a director for any reason.”

Association to host a ‘Meet the Candidates’ forum May 12 By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association (RSFA) is preparing for its annual meeting where they will have the opportunity to meet the candidates vying for the upcoming three vacant seats on the board. It is anticipated that the May 12 annual gathering will be well-attended at the Garden Club which will begin at 5 p.m. According Christy Whalen, communications manager for the RSFA, Ann Boon, who currently serves as the board president, will first address the mem-

bers in attendance. During the course of her presentation, she will acknowledge and thank her outgoing members that consist of Heather Slosar, Philip Wilkinson, and Jerry Yahr for their service. “Next, we will have the ‘Meet the Candidates’ portion of the meeting,” Whalen said. Whalen pointed out that there are currently six members running in the 2016 election. Those who are taking part include: Janet Danola, Allen Finkelson, Rachel Laffer, Rachel Leheny, Kenneth Markstein and Terry Peay. “The six candidates

running for election will each address the audience and then answer member questions,” she said.

May appointed as RSFA acting manager By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — At a recent May 5 Rancho Santa Fe Association board of directors meeting, it was decided that Don May be chosen to serve as interim acting manager during Bill Overton’s leave. Currently, May holds the position of finance and operations manager.

Overton joined the Rancho Santa Fe Association as its manager in January 2015. May accepted his position with the Association last year, as well. Director Fred Wasserman read the resolution for the board and members who were present. In the resolution, it was indicated that commencing

immediately May would be appointed to the position of acting manager and de facto acting secretary of the Ranch Santa Fe Association. Wasserman pointed out the duties of the Association manager were listed in article 5, section 9 of the Association bylaws whereas secretary duties were in article 5, section 5.

The board ratified that May would take on these roles in the absence of Overton. “I certify that the forerun resolution was adopted by the board of directors at a regular scheduled meeting on May 5, 2016,” Wasserman said. “I move that we accept the resolution.” This action item was voted on unanimously.

City pumps breaks on Camino del Mar streetscape plan By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — As 20year old plans to improve the downtown stretch of Camino del Mar are being updated, council members at the May 2 meeting directed staff to slow down the process, meaning the roadway and sidewalks between Ninth and 15th streets will not be redeveloped before the Breeders’ Cup comes to town next year. “You don’t want any streetscape going on that’s going to impact that event,” Councilman Don Mosier said. About a year ago city staff members began a public outreach campaign to identify what changes would be needed to the 1996 Camino del Mar streetscape plan that established a solid foundation for what the project could incorporate. To complete design and construction drawings for such a capital improvement project, more specificity is required, the staff report states. Since February of this year staff and representa-

tives from Spurlock Landscape Architects, which created the 1996 document, met with members of the Business Support and Traffic and Parking Advisory committees and the Del Mar Village Association to garner feedback that would help make the plan implementable. The existing conditions include 4- to 17-foot medians, 8- to 11-foot turn lanes, 12-foot vehicular lanes, a 5to 6-foot bike lane, diagonal and parallel parking and 5to 15-foot pedestrian areas. Based on input the project team created four options that featured smaller medians and vehicular lanes, possibly only parallel parking, fewer parking spaces, larger bike lanes and more pedestrian realms. The purpose of the May 2 presentation was to provide an update and confirm next steps rather than discuss design preferences. According to the staff timeline, workshops and meetings with the advisory committees, DMVA and commercial property owners

would be held this summer. City Council would review the recommended plan updates and the partial architectural design drawings by fall. The city engineer would then fully develop the design drawings and council would decide whether to pursue a spring 2017 streetscape capital improvement project. “It sounds too fast,” Councilman Dwight Worden said. “Air it all out, see what the community thinks. I think it’s going to take a lot more time to really take the temperature of the community. “And as a city we’re doing so many things right now I’d sort of worry about community fatigue just keeping up with all the things we’re doing,” he added. The city is in the process of replacing City Hall, developing a master plan for the Shores property, discussing allowing short-term vacation rentals, considering law enforcement options that include starting a Del Mar police department and possibly undergrounding utility poles citywide. “We’ve got too much stuff on the plate,” Worden

said. “I just don’t see us wedging this in in an effective way and doing it justice in that same timeframe.” “You want to keep the momentum of the project going but we’ve got workshops on short-term rentals,” Mosier said. “We’ve got other things going on. I don’t know when the best time to get the public’s attention is but my sense is it doesn’t make any sense to have workshops until maybe October or November.” Mosier also noted that with the City Hall project and the Breeders’ Cup the city has “narrower windows for construction options.” Mosier also said he had a problem with any plan that loses a significant number of parking spaces before the new City Hall is completed in two years. “If you’re going to do all these changes doesn’t it make sense to do it the same time you’re doing streetscape in front of City Hall?” he asked. “This is very much a project that could be phased,” City Manager Scott Huth said, adding that it might be better for timing because there is currently no funding for the work. “The potential here is fantastic,” Worden said. “What could be is really great. … I’d like to move it along as quickly as possible but we’ve lived with it the way it is for decades. I’d rather take the time to get it right and bring the community along.” Huth said in the interim staff will focus on updating property and business owners. “There’s a lot of education that we have to do with those people,” he said.

Early voting began this week in the June 7 presidential primary election. Are you registered to vote? I took a closer look at the local races and voter dynamics for this election cycle in San Diego County. Using data from the San Diego Registrar of Voters and political campaign software, I came to some notable conclusions. First, on projecting voter turnout: Of those presidential primaries in early states where Independent voters are eligible to cast ballots in the Democratic and Republican presidential contests, total statewide voter turnout has ranged from 44 percent to 50 percent. However, most of those state ballots were limited to the presidential contest, or only included congressional district races. San Diego County, and voters statewide, will be casting ballots on additional local races and ballot measures, some of which will increase voter turnout due to competitive contests and campaigns spending resources on Get-Out-The-Vote operations. Furthermore, California voter registration has skyrocketed over the last few months, particularly among infrequent voter groups — young people, Latinos and Independents. This is a good indicator of a high voter turnout this election cycle. With Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich dropping out of the Republican presidential contest, voter enthusiasm for the June 7 election is decidedly no longer at a bipartisan fever pitch. Still, there are large numbers of highly motivated voters eager to cast ballots in favor and against particular candidates. Unusual for a presidential primary election, both political parties have controversial, polarizing front runners (Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and businessman Donald Trump) with high unfavorable ratings nationally. This has helped sustain voter attention and strong opinions about which candidates to support and not support. At this point in time, I project that slightly more than half (50 percent to 53 percent) of all registered voters county-

wide will cast a ballot in the June 7 election. This range falls short of the countywide voter turnout for the February 2008 presidential primary (60.67 percent) but surpasses the 2012 turnout rate (37.43 percent). Based on the most current countywide voter registration totals (April 30), this would mean approximately 778,000 to 837,000 votes will be cast this election cycle. Next, onto voter registration: California is experiencing historic growth in new voter registrations — more than 850,000 voters have registered between Jan. 1 and March 31 of this year. This registration figure is twice the total from the same time period in 2012. San Diego County is no exception. Crunching the numbers in San Diego County, I found that from Jan. 1 to March 18, 122,701 new registrations were added to the county voter rolls. These new voters are younger, more diverse and more Democratic-leaning than the overall San Diego electorate. Slightly more than half (51 percent) are Millennials, and four out of 10 (42 percent) registered with the Democratic Party. Looking at recent presidential primaries, demographically these voters largely fit the profile of Bernie Sanders supporters. San Diego is “feeling the Bern,” and it may be for a couple more weeks; the final deadline to register to vote is May 23. What do these trends mean for North County races? Most of these new Bernie voters reside in the city of San Diego, so there’s probably limited impact in local contests in our part of the region. It’s also unclear how many will be casting votes in down-ticket races. Two North County local races to follow: in the 52nd Congressional District (Rancho Bernardo, Poway), attorney Denise Gitsham is likely to advance to face incumbent Congressman Scott Peters in the fall general election. In San Diego County Supervisorial District 3, the conventional political wisdom says that incumbent Supervisor Dave Roberts will fall short of earning the majority of votes, and will instead have to face a challenger in the general election. Barring polling data, I rate the run-off contest between Escondido Mayor Sam Abed and Encinitas Mayor Kristin Gaspar to face Roberts a toss-up.

Senior care is topic of guest lecturer

SOLANA BEACH — Volunteers on May 4 celebrated the recent completion of an approximately $7,000 renovation of the St. James and St. Leo dental clinic. “Deacon Al (Graff) told me it looks better now than when it was new,” former Mayor Joe Kellejian said while recognizing the nearly 20 individuals and groups who donated to the project. Collegian said he learned the clinic needed improvements at a picnic with his longtime dentist, Dr. Dan Tevrizian, and his

wife, Jan Tevrizian, who works as a volunteer hygienist at the office. “Dan did the planning and grunt work and I said I’d help raise money,” Kellejian said. Monetary donations from various local businesses, nonprofit organizations and area residents ranged from $100 to $2,000. Kellejian’s wife, Mary, is an interior designer who secured 10 gallons of donated paint from Sherwin-Williams. The SeaWeeders Garden Club, an offshoot of the Solana Beach Civic and Historical Society, donated

the time and all materials needed for the landscaping. Staffed completely by volunteers from the medical community, the St. James and St. Leo Medical and Dental Program offers medical and dental care for the uninsured working poor who live in Solana Beach, Encinitas and other nearby cities. The dental clinic, which opened in 1993, provides services for children on Saturday mornings. Wednesday evening patients are from the WelTURN TO DONORS ON A17

RANCHO SANTA FE — As one enters their golden years, there are an array of questions that may arise regarding the choices they have for their senior care. On May 4, residents of Rancho Santa Fe and surrounding communities had the opportunity to hear guest speaker, Todd Shetter of ActivCare Living, cover a variety of topics at the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center. The theme of the lecture was entitled, “Choosing the Right Care at the Right Time.” The meeting afforded guests with information regarding what Medicare covers following a hospitalization stay and the variances between a skilled nursing center and at-home care. Shetter also discussed residential senior living communities and the different levels of care that their guests can receive. For those who decide that a residential community is the right choice, their needs may differ over the years, and a community offering various levels of care can meet those healthcare expectations.

Falzon publishes third children’s book By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — When Adrienne Falzon moved from New York City to Rancho Santa Fe three years ago, she had just published her first children’s book, “What is an Angel?” Nearly three years later, Falzon’s third book, “Selfish Sally,” has been released and is receiving notice. And once again, Falzon chose Helen M. Salzberg to do her illustrations. In her new book, young Sally, who is an only child, won’t share with others and soon receives the moniker, “Selfish Sally.” Falzon said that the character didn’t know what the word “selfish” meant until her mother explained it to her. “But what Sally does realize is that she has no friends because no one even wants to go near her,” Falzon said. And then Sally reaches an epiphany: being selfish is not the way to be. The young girl works hard to regain these friendships and it takes a few tries. And when she does, happiness reveals itself. For Falzon, each of her books is punctuated by a lesson. “Selfish Sally,” Falzon admits, brought her back to her childhood. And all of her books have this effect

on her, she explained. Falzon, though, is the polar opposite of Sally. She describes her own youth being raised in the Bronx as a happy one. While Falzon was an only child, she was not a lonely child. Instinctively, she knew how to reach out to others. “I loved to share what I had and volunteered for what ever needed to be

done,” Falzon said. “And all of a sudden I realized that not only did it feel good, but I made friends along the way by sharing. Friends became my family, and in many ways, they still are since my children and grandchildren live all over the United States.” Falzon pointed out how she would feel extraordinarily good from another

friend’s generosity, as well. Always willing to volunteer, in elementary school Falzon agreed to write an essay for fire prevention week. Little did she know it was submitted for a contest, and ultimately Falzon was the first place recipient in New York City with a medal given to her by the mayor at City Hall. According to Falzon, volunteering has the opportunity to give so much back, especially when people least expect it. “Helping others really benefits the giver, as I see it. Since there’s no greater feeling than knowing you have made a difference in someone else’s life. It means getting out of your own head and body and extending yourself to the world around you,” said Falzon. “It means sharing your life and ideas with anyone and everyone who needs them.” Falzon views this interaction as an energy flow calling it, “The Sharing Science.” One must keep that energy moving so it circulates back. It harkens back to the theory of what goes around, comes around. Falzon admits that while she didn’t intellectually grasp this sharing theory at a young age, what she TURN TO FALZON ON A17

Seaside Market’s expansion is in full swing By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Seaside Market has long been a focal point of the community of Cardiff-by-the-Sea. With its imminent expansion and re-branding, it is hoping to become a destination. The 31-year-old market recently announced the hiring of chef James Montejano, who transformed La Valencia Hotel to a regional food destination the past two years, to lead the market’s re-branding and expansion efforts. Those efforts, which are the result of a 13,000 sq. ft. expansion plan the city approved in 2014, include the addition of armto-table dinners, wine tastings, private parties and cooking classes and the development of an outdoor barbecue kitchen and dining area. “We were thriving and growing and during all of that we decided to remodel it to make it bigger and better, playing into our vision of creating the ultimate gourmet grocery store,” said Pete Najjar, longtime co-owner. “Our goal is to be the best grocer in all of San Diego.” Montejano’s hiring is at the center of those plans. Montejano is charged with revamping the market’s ready-made food section for health-conscious eaters, adding plant-based, paleo and gluten-free offerings, as well as the “destination” events in the market’s news new mezzanine kitchen. The San Diego native will also develop an outdoor barbecue kitchen and dining area offering carved meats including the market’s signature “Cardiff Crack” tri-tip, and will also develop new offsite catering menus and oversee menu changes at Cardiff Seaside Market’s Petco Park outpost. “With our new buildout and expansion, we want to bring the food to the next level,” Najjar said. “We’ve already been successful, but now we want to bring in a professional chef

who can transform Seaside Market into a chef-driven destination — someone who has a great eye for creativity and continually increasing food quality.” Montejano, whose career includes previous posts at Le Papagayo in Leucadia and Pamplemousse Grille in Solana Beach, called the new post a “homecoming.”

Our goal is to be the best grocer in all of San Diego.”

the community.” Barth said the community has already embraced the most recent expansion is excited about the upcoming additions. “For many of us who live here and like to walk, we really value having the ability to have the opportunity to socialize and have entertainment within walking distance of our homes,” Barth said. “That whole desire to not have to get in your car and drive to San Diego. It further reflects the fact that the Najjars have their fingers on the pulse of the community.”

“Seaside Market has always been a cut above,” Montejano said. “A movement toward health consciousness coupled with increasing interest in gourmet and high-quality cuisine drove me to make this transition from restaurant to market. I can’t wait to redefine the concept of the neighborhood grocery store by bringing innovative, restaurant quality food to consumers.” The Cardiff Towne Center has historically been the central point of the coastal enclave. It was previously home to a Vons grocery store before John and Pete Najjar purchased the site and opened Seaside Market. Teresa Barth, a longtime Cardiff resident who is well versed in the town’s history, credits the Najjars for evolving the market over time to fit the needs of the changing community. “The Towne Center has changed over time, but the Najjars have been consistent anchors, and they have supported community efforts,” Barth said. “They have kept changing as the community changes, for example with the addition of more organic and locally-grown offerings.

The School of Rock Difference At School of Rock, we believe the best way to learn music is to play music. Through our performance-based approach to music instruction, School of Rock students are more inspired to learn, more motivated to excel, and more confident as a result. We combine weekly private music instruction with group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the stage in front of live audiences in a concert setting. Our Performance Program introduces teamwork

and collaboration into music instruction by grouping students together to put on real rock shows at real music venues. Students learn musicianship and how to perform in an authentic rock show environment. Each season, students hone their music skills by learning some of the greatest songs in rock and roll history. In our Rock 101 program, kids just starting out will learn the fundamentals of playing a musical instrument in a fun and interactive group environment. Songs are chosen to

build a strong foundation on a respective student’s musical instrument. Our Summer, Winter and Spring Break Camps are designed for musicians of all skill levels who play guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocals. Honing music performance and ensemble skills in a fun environment, students work in a hands-on atmosphere that includes learning the nuts and bolts of live performance, interacting with other musicians, Rock & Roll music appreciation, and a LIVE rock show!

Californians weigh in on small business in commissioned survey Survey shows overwhelming consumer support for small businesses When Californians were asked which political candidate is most likely to support legislation that provides more opportunities for small businesses, Bernie Sanders edged out Hillary Clinton and cruised past Donald Trump, according to the 2016 Cox Consumer Pulse on Small Businesses survey. Additionally, more California consumers (47 percent) believe the Democratic Party contributes more to small business growth compared to Republicans and Independents. The national blind survey, commissioned by Cox Business in recognition of National Small Business Week (May 1 through May 7, 2016), polled consumers from around the country, including California. Other key findings from Cali-

fornia respondents included: • 90 percent frequent small businesses at least once a week, with 43 percent shopping small businesses three times or more per week; • 59 percent say WiFi is the best perk to have while waiting (coffee came in second at 20 percent); • 66 percent didn’t feel it is necessary for small businesses to stay open on holidays; • When asked which digital channels they use to interact with small businesses (and to select all that apply), 55 percent use websites, 47 percent email and 41 percent Facebook compared to Instagram (21 percent), text (20 percent) and Twitter (14 percent). • 72 percent of California consumers feel the federal government does not do enough to promote small business growth on a A commissioned survey from Cox Business polls small business owners from around national level; the country in recognition of National Small Business Week, May 1 through May 7. • The entrepreneurial bug Courtesy photo starts early. According to survey

responses, California consumers have tried their hands at a variety of business ventures as kids, including: babysitting (44 percent), neighborhood lemonade stand (28 percent), mowing lawns (27 percent), paper route (26 percent), and dog walking (12 percent).

Pacific Ridge sophomore makes history on soccer pitch By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — When Sierra Enge lined up in her usual center-back position on the soccer pitch in Monfalcone, Italy, last week, she became part of history. Sierra, a 16-year-old sophomore at Pacific Ridge School and a Cardiff resident, is captain of the U.S. Under-16 Girl’s National Team. On April 26, she and her mates faced off against the U-16 girls team from Iran, becoming the first U.S. women’s national team on any level to face a team from the Middle East. The U.S. team defeated their Iranian counterparts 6-0, but the score was merely

arithmetic given the historic backdrop. And the significance was not lost on Sierra. “I mean, it was an incredible honor to be honest,” she said this week. “It was crazy, and we were all super excited to be a part of it. It was an incredibly humbling and incredible experience that all of us will never forget. It also showed how soccer can help with the empowering of women across the world and we were humbled to be a part of that.” Sierra’s team went 1-1-1 in last week’s International Women’s Tournament of Gradisca, good for fourth place in the six-team field. It was the first internation-

al matches of the year for the team and first since the program was re-instated last year. Sierra said while the team received the invitation a month ago, it wasn’t until two weeks before the tournament that the team learned the magnitude of the game they would play against Iran. By the time the game started, Sierra said, she wasn’t nervous. “It just felt very special to be part of that experience,” she said. For Sierra, that experience could likely be the start of many special experiences in her soccer career. A two-year veteran of the U.S. Soccer program,

Sierra has aspirations to play in the U-20 World Cup in 2020 and potentially play on the national team in the World Cup or the Olympics. As captain of the U-16 team and committed to play college soccer at Stanford University, Sierra is considered one of the elite players in the country and is on track to achieve those goals, a fact that she said excites her. “It is really cool to know that these goals are definitely options, but I still have to work really hard to make those teams,” said Sierra, who plays club soccer for Carlsbad Elite. “Nothing is for sure, but I am excited to be able to work hard and work toward those goals.”

att Thompson had an idea and maybe the San Dieguito High baseball coaches wouldn’t notice. “Oh no, they did,’’ Thompson said, “We got in trouble.’’ Thompson, now the Point Loma Playhouse artistic director and an actor, was a Ted Williams fan when playing for the Mustangs in 1987. When arriving at Williams’ Hoover High in North Park for a game, Thompson made a visit to Williams’ childhood home at 4121 Utah Street. “I was freaking out we were at Hoover, where Ted played,’’ Thompson said. “So it was before the game and me and two of the other guys actually ran over to his house about a mile away. We kind of gawked at it from across the street.’’ The breakaway bunch returned for the first pitch but were reprimanded. Thompson, who rarely saw the field, wasn’t concerned about the consequences. “I didn’t play much; I think I got up nine times all year,’’ he said. “But I did in that game and hit a grounder to third. I was safe at first base, I remember that, but the ump called me out. I guess that was karma for going to see Ted’s house.’’ Thompson now fills the house with his one-

man show, “Ted Williams: A Tip of the Cap.” He recently performed it before a capacity crowd. “It went great,’’ Thompson said. “And we had a nice discussion and told stories afterward.’’ Thompson’s athletic career ended that year at San Dieguito. He turned to the arts, which led to his presentation of Teddy Ballgame. Instead of doing a glossy biography of the multi-layered Williams, Thompson dives into what made the former Boston Red Sox star tick. “Not just his rants and him yelling at sportswriters,’’ Williams added. Instead we discover Williams’ challenge of switching coasts and his interaction with family. Williams was confident in the batter’s box, but a conflicted Hall of Famer out of it. “He had these internal demons,’’ Thompson, 44, said. “Even as a kid he preferred to be by himself, be alone. He was in a shell and it was hard for him to come out of it. So I tried to pull those things out. What motivated him and what was his humanity like? There were many conflicts there and that makes a good story.’’ Few know that Williams’ mother was Hispanic. While proud of his heritage Williams felt restrained expressing it. “This was in the 1950s and he was afraid he would be an outcast if people knew,’’ Thompson said. “He often said if he looked more like his brother — who more resembled their mother — he might not have made it TURN TO JAY PARIS ON A17

ego Hall of Champions to write the Williams manuscript in 2011 for Bob Breitbard’s 90th birthday. Breitbard, the Hall of Champions founder and Williams’ longtime friend, was thrilled with Thompson’s work. “I got to read a few pages of it for him,’’ Thompson said, noting that Breitbard died before its debut. “He liked it but said I didn’t have enough cussing in it.’’ Williams wore red but his language had a blue streak. Years later, the salty Williams had second thoughts on his behavior. “He was a very alpha-male guy,’’ Thompson said. “But he had a lot of

regrets in how he related to sportswriters and the fans. He always felt he should have acknowledged the fans more.’’ We’ll do something that Williams seldom did — tip our cap to Thompson for bringing this complex man to life. Thompson showcases Williams again July 9 at the San Diego Central Library, with a free performance as part of the AllStar Game festivities. Like the outcome of countless Williams’ atbats, it’ll be a hit.

are seen for emergencies on both days, said Klaus Gubernator, the clinic’s administrator. During the approximately three-month renovation project the clinic was only closed on two Saturdays. But Gubernator said doctors were performing examinations remotely so it would not have opened those days anyway. “This is a renewal of a commitment that was made about 25 years ago by Deacon Al Graff, Dr. Dick Wheelock and Dr. Bob Bobbit,” said Manny Aguilar, president of La Colonia de Eden Gardens. “It has made a difference in the lives of our community members. “This community is a model for the rest of the world,” he added. “A lot of immigrants have had success and are coming back to serve.” One such resident is Michael Carter, a surgical assistant who grew up

in Eden Gardens and now volunteers at the dental clinic. “We thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” Aguilar said when he was presented with a certificate for his organization’s donation to the project. “We are humbled and grateful for all that you have done for the community.” “Thanks to all you folks,” Kellejian said to the donors. “We can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for the youth of these local communities.” “We just fixed up something that already existed so it’s a little nicer,” Dan Tevrizian said. “The people who volunteer in the clinic, after working all day at their regular jobs, are the ones who deserve all the recognition.” Collegian agreed. “We just added some icing on the cake,” he said. “We should be honoring them.” Tony Jacal’s restaurant donated food for the event.

week of June. “It’s coming up very quickly and we are very pleased to note that progress,” he said. A set date for a hearing with the County Board of Supervisors is scheduled for Sept 28. If the EIR is ratified, Farrar said, the build out of these roundabouts can begin. Estimates on construc-

Along with a feasibility study, there was also a community survey. “We received over 500 responses and over 85 percent of them were positive,” said Licosati, referring to the survey. Licosati said that some respondents were willing to pay over 150 percent for what they were currently paying today for improved connectivity. Following the Request for Proposal Quote and term sheet process, Hotwire Communications was chosen. “So the tech committee and board determined that if we are going to spend millions of dollars we had to establish some principles for what we wanted to achieve.

A decade ago, the roundabout project was halted. “Here we are 10 years later and I want to make sure that this board, you, and staff continues your contact with the county,” he said.

Eggleston pointed out that he wanted to be certain that in 2026 the roundabout project would be completed and the board would not be in the same position that it was in today. Farrar assured Eggleston that this would not happen and highlighted how they have already met with the county twice. He went on to say that the Association staff is dedicated to get this project done.

tion.” And increasing megabit speed wasn’t sufficient. “We wanted true gigabit speed and fiber optic to every home in the Covenant,” he said. Licosati shared that after extensive discussion among the finance and technology committees, they recommended to the Board that the Association fund the full cost of construction. A combination of Covenant Enhancement Funds and bank loans would be utilized. “This has been a huge undertaking for a project that we think is the most exciting one we have had in the community,” Licosati said. Vice President of sales at Hotwire Communications Dan O’Connell, was present at the meeting. He described their commitment as hands-on and white glove customer service that is second to none in the industry. Founded 15 years ago, the company is headquartered in Pennsylvania. Currently, Hotwire has 300,000 customers which vary from residential, small

to medium businesses, the hospitality industry to student housing. O’Connell wanted everyone to know that they specialize in residential communities and partner with HOAs among other types. “This is what we do every day all across the country,” he said. “And we are thrilled with the prospect in adding Rancho Santa Fe to our portfolio.” John Honker of Magellan Advisors highlighted that the partnership goal is for RSFA to have some skin in the game as a community-owned network. He also pointed out that the system would be operated and managed by Hotwire. “You need a partner to manage a state-of-the-art network on behalf of the Association,” Honker said. He added, “You have an opportunity to get world-class services in Rancho Santa Fe that is very difficult to get even in larger cities.” Honker said what this project will afford the Ranch is critical infrastructure that will last over the long term.

non-profits to put on events at other places while working with the county. “So I am sorry if you feel hustled,” said Boon, addressing Kendall. “I think the focus is on getting businesses, residents and nonprofits working together to find ways to revitalize the Village.” Kendall described the presentation’s explanation as “soft pedaling” and an overuse of “buzz words.” Kendall’s comments spurred a question from another member asking if the committee had proper permits. Pennington further addressed the permitting issue. She started by pointing out how the activities on the Village Green which took

place on every other Saturday morning were successful and welcomed families and residents of all ages. “These parks are the heart of our Village and are not zoned for active use other than six times a year,” said Pennington, noting that the entities they worked with did not have that prior knowledge. “So once that was discovered, we delved into figuring out a permitting approach that would allow for events and activities that are welcoming to all residents of Rancho Santa Fe to continue in the Village, but to do so in a way that is appropriate and permitted. And that is what we are working on now.”



to the majors.’’ Williams once said, “The only race he cared about was the pennant race.” But Thompson learned otherwise. In Williams’ 1966 Hall of Fame induction speech he preached about inclusion. He railed against Negro League players being overlooked by Cooperstown. “That really opened the door for the minority players in the ‘70s,’’ Thompson said. Thompson, who also teaches at area community colleges, was commissioned by the San Di-



come Home ministry for female prisoners who have been deemed “determined to change their lives.” “Many of them have terrible teeth, and it’s hard to get a job because the first thing people notice is their smile, or lack thereof,” said Kathy Templin, a nurse practitioner who has been volunteering at the medical clinic since it opened in 1991. The dental clinic, which sees about 1,500 patients a year, has four chairs and a panoramic X-ray machine valued at more than $20,000. Of the 26 volunteers, about half are dentists. The rest of the staff is made up of hygienists and dental students. On a typical Wednesday three dentists and one hygienist see about nine patients. Up to 18 youngsters are seen on Saturdays.

riving. Rather like the word “snow,” in the Eskimo language, driving takes on a host of meanings over a lifetime. And takes on yet another with the advent of the driverless car. For many, the earliest memories define it as your half of the back seat where you are stuck with a full bladder for hours, driving from one vacation spot to another. As one’s 16th birthday approaches, it means freedom. At the time, I assumed it meant freedom forever. Ha! After dropping off one child, picking up another, driving their friends home and running a dozen errands, I realized that freedom flows uphill. At first, however, I was too busy happily cruising the local Taco Bell in my Rambler station wagon. Oh yeah. I was so far from cool, and didn’t care. I had wheels and realized that if you’re behind the wheel, you are too busy to get carsick. Now that was freedom. I next graduated to a smaller, and by default, sportier car. It had to be small enough to park in the tiniest spot on campus, cheap enough to get 40 mpg and must possess the ability to be started by two fraternity guys and a slightly sloping hill. It meant a stick shift, baby, four-on-the-floor. Ah, to be 20-something and have a manual shift. We could have papered the bathroom TURN TO SMALL TALK ON B11

Friends start ride across country for a cause By Tony Cagala

REGION — At the time of his retirement, Dr. Jim Quigley said he would like to stay active, spend more time hiking and backpacking even biking and doing some charity work. Now Quigley, 66, the retired doctor of 37 years is combining two of those wants — biking and charity work — into one major challenge. Quigley, a Carlsbad resident and former doctor at the North Coast Medical Center in Encinitas, along with his friend Kevin McCauley, started off on May 8 with their wheels in the Pacific Ocean before pedaling across the country until they reach Revere Beach, Mass., just a couple of months later. Quigley said he and McCauley are doing the ride for a number of similar reasons: The appeal of the adventure, the meeting of Retired Dr. Jim Quigley, left, and Kevin McCauley set off from Manhattan Beach on May new people, a bucket list item — 8, pedaling across the country to Revere Beach, Mass., to help raise funds for research but Quigley also wanted to see if, and a cure for ALS.

at his age, he had enough left in the tank to accomplish it. “It’s kind of interesting to get to this point where you’re saying, ‘Do I still have it in the tank to do this kind of a ride.’ So that’s the physical challenge that I’m looking forward to overcome — the uncertainty of it,” he said. And yet still, there’s the bigger purpose of it all that they expect will keep them going — the continuation of the work by their friend Mike Ramirez to raise funds for research and finding a cure for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).

CARLSBAD — History buffs, veterans and youngsters had the chance to view some of the most iconic planes from World War II at the McClellan-Palomar Airport the last week of April. The Collings Foundation, as part of its Wings of Freedom tour, flew in four planes that played a pivotal role in the outcome of the war, including a P-51 Mustang, a B-17 Flying Fortress a B-24 Liberator and a B-25. The event also allowed patrons an opportunity to fly in the planes.

dd Files Emergency responders take part in drill O B C S

y huck hepherd

By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Dozens of first responders came together last week for one of the county’s largest drills to combat blocked access to medical facilities. Among the participants were the county responders, hospital staff, Red Cross, EMT personnel, Certified Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers, military and others, who took over Carlsbad’s state-of-theart safety training center off Orion Road. Jack Welch, strategic national stockpile coordinator for the county, said the scenario was design to cut off access to Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside after a mudslide. As a result, first responders created an alternate care site at the center to categorize patients and communicate with other city and county officials to determine safe access to other county hospitals. “We have to open up an alternative care site, just like these,” Welch said. “We are going to have medical intensive care nurses here, that will be finding

Google Sees the Future Google filed a U.S. Patent Office application on April 28 for a vision-improvement device in liquid form that, once inserted (i.e., injected directly into the eyeball!), solidifies into not only a lens replacement for the eye but an instrument that carries its own storage, radio and wireless power supply. The idea, according to inventor Andrew Jason Conrad, is to better focus light onto the retina. (The patent process does not assure that the device will ever come to fruition, but it might indicate that Google’s parent, Alphabet, is concerned that other inventors might be doing similar work.)

Plastic bag ban will be reintroduced in Del Mar By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — A ban on single-use plastic bags in the county’s smallest city is now expected to take effect around June 16, about two months later than originally planned. A proposed ordinance was introduced on Feb. 16. Normally the new law would have been presented for a second reading and adopted at the following meeting on March 7, with implementation starting one month later.

But changes made during the February hearing were not reviewed by all stakeholders, and members of the business community voiced concerns about the implementation of certain aspects of the requirements. As a result the city did not proceed with the second reading. Officials then met with the stakeholder groups to address issues raised by the Sustainability Advisory Board and the business community.

One of the main concerns was that because the ordinance was modeled after Solana Beach’s it was more suited to big-box retailers, grocery stores and national retail chains found in that neighboring city rather than smaller, independent, tourist-based retail businesses commonly seen in Del Mar. The major change to the new law is that plastic bags that are at least 2.25 mils thick can be used as reusable bags.

A second reading of the revised ordinance is scheduled for adoption May 16 but the new law will be implemented in phases. Grocery stores, pharmacies, city facilities, nonprofit vendors and all other retail establishments will have six months to comply. Restaurants, food vendors, catering food trucks and the farmers market will have one year. The ban will not be applicable to the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

To encourage shoppers to carry reusable bags, stores can provide paper bags but they must charge at least 10 cents for each one. Violators will be fined $100 for the first offense, $200 for the second offense within one year and $500 for each additional violation within one year. Planned outreach efforts include signage, information on the city website, screening a documentary that describes the environmental effects of plastic and distributing free reusable bags. The city will use $2,000 from the solid-waste recycling fund to buy the giveaway bags and pay for the rights to show “Bag It: Is Your Life Too Plastic?” The Del Mar Village Association has also expressed interest and willingness to host a plastic bag recycling receptacle at their office.

The Entrepreneurial Spirit! Before new parents ruin their baby daughter’s chances of future success by giving her “weak” names (such as Polly), they should consult one of several services that recommend more powerful ones (such as Elizabeth). A New York City woman offers personalized naming research for fees starting at several hundred dollars, but a Swiss agency whose primary work is helping to name product brands now offers parents suggestions on their offspring’s “brand” (for corporate-like fees beginning at around $29,000). (Parents in South Korea and India traditionally seek baby-naming recommendations from priests, who review religious text, culture and astrology — in exchange for modest offerings.) • Entrepreneur.com reported in April the surprising success of “Ship Your Enemies Glitter,” in which, for about $10, the startup sends an envelope full of glitter that, when opened, scatters, irritating (or enraging) the recipient. The concept was an overnight sensation, but quickly petered out and was seemingly worthless — until a prescient businessman offered $85,000 for its two assets: (1) a valuable list of customers who might buy similar pranks (such as a cupcake that’s really horse manure) and (2) an opportunity at additional waves of customers newly discovering the original glitter product. The $85,000 purchaser now reports sales “in the high six figures.” Compelling Explanations Peter Jensen of Athol, Ida., filed a lawsuit against the state transportation department in April after his driving privileges were revoked because his car had no license plate. For the inconvenience, he believes he deserves $5.6 million in damages (gold and silver only, please) because, for example, there is nothing about “license plates” in the Ten Commandments. • Scout Hodge, 20, angry at his mother, was charged with arson in Austin, Texas, in January for setting fire to her rug. He told police he did it as a “political” statement (unexplained) and to prove he isn’t a “loser.”

Sales tax increase won’t be on November ballot By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Residents will likely vote on a 1 percent sales tax increase to help fund one or more major improvement projects, but it won’t be during the upcoming November election, as was discussed when the proposal was introduced last month. Council members at the May 2 meeting said the ballot is already expected to be crowded with nearly 20 initiatives, including a ½ cent county sales tax increase, and city staff is dealing with a heavy workload. “The suggestion that we consider a 1 percent sales tax increase (to collect) an extra $2 million a year is, of course, attractive,” Councilman Don Mosier said. “I think it is a worthwhile goal. In terms of timing, though, I have significant concerns that this is the wrong ballot. “Our staff is overworked currently,” he added. “This is another project,

compensated, she said. “To me it’s just not fair.” Greg Glassman, who owns Zel’s Del Mar, said he opposes any tax increase. “It’s almost a double whammy what’s going on in the small business community right now,” he said. “We also have this minimum wage issue that all of the small businesses are dealing with and we felt as a group that that would be kind of onerous.” Residents and council members generally agreed that for the measure to pass,

major public outreach would be required. “This is an important community discussion and we ought to take the time to get it right,” Mosier said. Councilman Dwight Worden said the city shouldn’t move forward unless a “100 percent effort” can be made to ensure success. “I don’t see that happening between now and November,” Worden said. “And if we put it on the ballot and it fails, in this town it’s dead for a long time.”

He also said the city shouldn’t consider what projects the money should fund unless plans are completed, and most of them are not. It feels backwards to me to be pinning down the money before having plans, he said. Councilman Al Corti said he would prefer to see the proposal move forward because it would be easier to pull the measure from the ballot if the outreach efforts fall short. “It’s a worthwhile

Roger Russell Smith, 72, passed away Thursday, April 28, 2016 in Lake Havasu City, AZ where he resided. He will be sadly and sorely missed by his loving family and friends. Roger, whom his family affectionately called “Papa” will be remembered for his charismatic personality, love of life and FUNNY sense of humor! He loved his family deeply and with all his heart.

that I don’t think is absolutely essential, dumped on their plate.” “I’d like to slow this down and also lighten it up for the staff,” Mayor Sherryl Parks added. The city is in the process of replacing City Hall, developing a master plan for the Shores property, discussing allowing short-term vacation rentals and considering law enforcement options that include starting a Del Mar police department. Also being discussed is undergrounding utility poles citywide, a project initially earmarked to receive the money for the sales tax increase. That type of specific tax increase would have to be approved by two-thirds of Del Mar voters. A general tax increase, seemingly preferred by most council members and residents, requires only a majority vote to pass. There was also concern that using the money to fund undergrounding — estimated to cost between $25 million and $30 million — presents equity issues for those who have already paid “substantial sums” for undergrounding, Mark Delin, assistant city manager, said. Carol Kerridge, who said she supports the increase for other projects, paid about $20,000 to underground the pole in front of her house. “I urge you to consider how unfair it would be for the city to absorb the cost of the remaining neighborhoods and their undergrounding projects” unless those who already paid are

idea,” he said. “We should pursue it.” He suggested conducting a survey so residents could weigh in on the proposal. “If the weigh-in is not good we put it off,” he said. Sales tax in Del Mar is currently 8 percent. About 4 percent goes to the state. Another 3 percent funds county coffers, and Del Mar gets the remaining 1 percent. Del Mar could keep all revenue — approximately $1.6 million annually — generated from the proposed

increase. It is estimated that about 60 percent to 70 percent of the sales tax in Del Mar is paid by nonresidents who visit the beach community or attend events at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The city could present the increase to voters in a special election or with a mail ballot. The cost for the former could be between $50,000 and $60,000.

More local high school students taking advantage of free college classes Call it a success. The number of local high school students taking MiraCosta College courses has skyrocketed by nearly 450 percent since MiraCosta eliminated fees for those concurrently enrolled in college classes just two years ago. Just 85 high school students were enrolled at MiraCosta College in the fall of 2013, the semester immediately before the new policy took effect. That number more than doubled the following spring semester. This spring — just two years after the fees were waived — some 466 high school students are also taking MiraCosta College courses. In all, 2,092 high school students have benefitted from the program, with the total number of classes taken by concurrently enrolled students since the fall of 2013 reaching 3,397. “By offering the local high school students in our district the ability to attend classes at MiraCosta College without charging them enrollment fees, we are furthering our mission and our commitment to being a conscientious community partner,” said Jane Sparks, MiraCosta College’s director of admissions and records. “Additionally, with

High school students are still required to pay for books and supplies, in addition to parking and other fees. our strong commitment to student success and our wonderful support systems, we can connect early with students who may be from traditionally underrepresented populations and show them that they absolutely can be successful in college.” The policy to waive enrollment fees was adopted after MiraCosta began offering college-credit classes at Carlsbad’s Sage Creek High School. College courses taught at Sage Creek this spring include biology, Spanish, intermediate algebra, introduction to film and introduction to computer science. Although they are taught at Sage Creek, those courses are open to all high school students in the Carlsbad, San Dieguito and other neighboring school districts. High school students can also take classes

at MiraCosta College campuses. Courses offered at local high schools that are limited strictly to high school students are considered ‘dual enrollment’ classes. The district will continue to work with local area high schools to set up dual enrollment courses to meet the needs of the community. Concurrently enrolled high school students who take courses at the Oceanside or San Elijo campuses enroll in courses that are not limited to high school students. The National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships says that concurrent enrollment “facilitates close collaboration between high school teachers and college faculty that fosters alignment of secondary and postsecondary curriculum.” The state Education Code notes that concurrent enrollment not only provides enhanced learning opportunities for high school students, but also helps ensure a smoother transition from high school to college by providing them with a greater exposure to the college atmosphere. High school students are still required to pay for books and supplies, in addition to parking and other fees.

‘Bags & Baubles’ event gives local pets a second chance RANCHO SANTA FE — On May 1, the Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) hosted its Bags & Baubles silent auction for its sixth consecutive year to raise funds and awareness for local pets in need of life-saving veterinary care. Bags & Baubles gives chic animal lovers a chance to shop for a cause. Hundreds of designer handbags, jewelry, sunglasses, and accessories were auctioned to fundraise for families struggling to save

their pets from “economic euthanasia,” when a pet is euthanized for a treatable medical condition due to financial hardship of the owner. To date FACE has saved the lives of more than 1,450 family pets, and the success of this year’s Bags & Baubles will save many more. The Rancho Santa Fe estate named “Casa Compassion” by “San Diego Home and Garden” was the site of Lulu the Doxie, happily held here by Sharon Howland, FACE Grantee. the silent auction.

After suffering from IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease from acute trauma), Lulu was saved in 2011 by the foundation and has been a beloved Bags & Baubles mascot since. She sported a fabu-

lous pink dress, sunhat, pearl necklace, and a smile acknowledging her second chance at life. This year FACE raised more than $125,000 from the event and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit pets in need of emergency veterinary care, like Lulu.

Gibson recognized by regional officials for conservancy service By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Doug Gibson has spent two decades championing the cause of preserving and restoring the wetland habitat at the San Elijo Lagoon. Last week, several of the region’s officials honored him for that service by proclaiming May 2 to be “Doug Gibson Conservancy Leadership Day.” County Supervisor Dave Roberts, Encinitas Mayor Kristin Gaspar and Solana Beach Mayor Dave Zito presented Gibson

with the recognition on May 2 at Tower 13 in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Serving as the backdrop of the event — the San Elijo Ecological Reserve where Gibson serves as executive director and principal scientist for the Lagoon Conservancy, which has stewarded the habitat restoration and preservation efforts. “I am very proud of how far we have come over these 20 years,” Gibson said. Located on the border of Encinitas and Solana Beach, the 979-acre lagoon

is home to more than 700 species of plants and animals, many rare and endangered. The lagoon is also popular with runners, bird watchers and wildlife photographers. Threatened with development in the late 1970s, the community fought to preserve the lagoon, and later the conservancy was founded to continue the restoration and Doug Gibson serves as executive director and principal scientist for the conservation efforts. According to a news San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy. He was honored May 2 for his 20 years Gibson’s leadworking to help preserve and restore the wetland habitat at the San Elijo release, Lagoon.

Las Vegas revamps, reshapes and re-invents itself for Millennials hit the road e’louise ondash


et’s face it; people like Las Vegas. Even when the last recession hit and Las Vegas was faced with particularly high unemployment and a severe collapse of the housing market, 40 million visitors a year still found their way to the city to gamble, see shows and to get quickie marriages (possibly followed by long-lasting regrets). The history of the rise of Las Vegas is like no other

city in our country. It is replete with true tales of gambling, prostitution, the Mob, celebrities, eccentrics, shady deals and greed. Since its founding in the 1930s, Sin City has evolved several times, and it is, once again, retooling, revamping, reshaping and re-inventing itself — all for the Millennials. Turns out that this generation — young adults who came of age around 2000 — do not have gambling high on their Things-We-Loveto-Do List. So thanks to the proclivities of the Millennials, people of all ages can enjoy extraordinary theater, spas, food and fine art. Here are just some of the many elements of Las Vegas 4.0 that I discovered on a recent media trip.

Actors and dancers portraying paparazzi in Cirque du Soleil’s “Michael Jackson One” show illustrate how the multi-faceted artist was constantly pursued throughout his life. The title of the show derives from Jackson’s belief that all people are unique and equal. The extravaganza of light, color, dance and acrobatic feats plays out against a backdrop of the King of Pop’s music, which emanates from the three speakers on each of the 1,804 theater seats. (If you are sound-sensitive, bring earplugs.) The high-tech production includes 26 video projectors that shoot images throughout the theater. The production has been playing since June 2013 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Courtesy photo

Japanese Spring Celebration is the theme for the floral displays currently showing at the Bellagio Hotel’s Conservatory. Horticulturalists and designers transform this 14,000-square-foot space every season into a showcase that is free to all visitors. When the display rotates, 90 percent of the organic materials are recycled, according to the hotel’s website. Photo by E’louise Ondash

Artful and scrumptious pasties fill the display cases at the Jean Philippe Patisserie in the Aria Resort & Casino. And should you need an ice cream fix, the shop offers a dozen flavors of gelato, too. A French national, Jean-Philippe Maury is an award-winning pastry chef who began his career at age 16. He won the title of World Champion Pastry Chef twice — once as a participant in 2002, and as a coach in 2004. Photo by E’louise Ondash

Props from “The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil” are stored backstage at the theater in the Mirage Hotel & Casino. Yes, that’s a KKK hood, used in a segment of the show that addresses racism. The show celebrates its 10th anniversary this summer. Since its conception, sound and light technologies have evolved enough that the producers of “LOVE” recently gave it a technical and artistic makeover. The theater has installed new equipment, and reworked the music and stunning acrobatic presentations. “LOVE” is staged in-the-round, so no one in the audience is more than 100 feet from the action.

Encinitas Foodie Fest to highlight the

best of the North County culinary scene

Travel Planner Tamara Golden and David Andersson of RELM host a series of “Meetups� at the Carlsbad bistro combining wines and stories of travel. Photo by Frank Mangio

It’s France versus California — again


ELM is a Carlsbad Village focal point for inquiring minds that are thirsty for the latest in wine and beer, in a bistro frank mangio setting. It has been re-invigorated after a short slump, by the smart and stylish General Manager David Andersson who came in after a successful run at Donovan’s Steak House in downtown La Jolla. It really got interesting when Andersson collaborated with Tamara Golden, a local expert on travel news and views, to come up with a “Meetup� series of

taste of wine



ith the explosion of all things culinary in North County, an event like the Encinitas Foodie Fest makes sense on so many levels. It’s a great opportunity to sample and meet the best culinary talent driving the food and beverage scene in the area. Jolee Pink from Wabisabi Green and the team from Delicious Buzz are producing the event and have an amazing day in store May 21. We discussed the event recently with Pink on what will make the second annual fest stand out.

with our speeding tickets, but we had fahrvergnugen ‘till heck wouldn’t have it. Unless you live in Maine or Montana, however, that thrill doesn’t last. Once you hit the commuteto-work-on-a-crowded-freeway stage of life, driving takes on yet another meaning. The stick shift swiftly turned into a thrash and for many of us, remains ever



As a former patient of Quigley’s, McCauley said during visits they’d talk every so often about biking, but it was during a seven-day hiking trip in Peru that the two really began seriously talking about biking across country. “It kind of morphed into the Peru trip and then it was solidified on a mountain bike ride when Jim said he was still thinking about it. And I said, ‘Absolutely, I want to do it,’” McCauley explained. Thirteen months of training later, the pair are leaving May 8 with a group comprised of an international cast of bikers; some are from England, others from Scotland and more from around the U.S. “I like seeing how far I can go, how far I can push myself,” Quigley said. “This is my Mount Everest.” Knowing that the ride will not only be challenging physically, but mentally, too, Quigley will rely on the con-


events that incorporate wine, food, travel and culture, at least once a month. The setting is intimate and encourages understanding through narration, large wall photos, and lots of wine comparisons, old world vs. new world. France’s Rhone Valley, Provence and the “Cote d’Azur” were highlighted in a two-hour Meetup of some 24 interested guests. French wines, it seems, are often compared with their American counterparts, going back to the “Paris Tasting” of 1976, when Napa Valley wines were compared with French wines for the first time in a “blind” setting — and the American wines defeated the French in the wellknown Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon categories. French grapes like Cabs, Chards and Merlots are the most produced in California, so there lays the undercurrent of constant competitiveness. While Andersson poured the wine and offered tasty Frenchstyle bites like “Chevre,” a duck liver mousse with cognac, Golden presented a vivid journey through the south of France with imagery and imagination. Her sources were her own experiences. She began in the north of the Rhone Valley at Lyon, France’s second largest city and then guided us to Hermitage deep in Rhone wine country. Avignon was the final


T he R ancho S anta F e News thus. Before you unloaded your manual transmission, every traffic jam left you with a sore arm, a burnedout clutch and the feeling that you had pedaled the whole way. From that moment on, driving meant work. I still want power everything and automatic everything. As I idly tuned in to a radio car talk show recently, I heard a young stock-car racer remark with fervor, “With a stick, you drive the car.

With an automatic, the car drives you.” Well, I wish! Oh sure, it’s coming, but darling, until they work out all the bugs, I’m still stuck behind that wheel. But at least I’m not driving a stick uphill in traffic. Perspective is everything.

centration and focus he used to get him through medical school to help. “I do have a tendency to just go, go, go,” he said of the physicality of it, adding, “I think the mental side is the name of the game.” The body, he said, adjusts — gets stronger as the ride goes on. For McCauley his mental preparation has come through “a lot of Zen meditation,” he said. But he’s always been into playing sports, he added. “I’m just going to try and handle it — just considering myself as from a young kid — just being a jock…seeing at 65, how far deep into the pain cave I can go,” he said. “What we’re doing, I wish it were a little more extraordinary and very few people have ever done that,” McCauley said. “People have been riding across the country and riding across the country for causes for decades and decades. It’s nothing fresh or new.

“We’re going to do it and see how we handle it,” he added. Perhaps the only thing that could get them off their bikes is the weather. By the time they reach the Midwest they’re anticipating lightning storms, even tornadoes. The two will be blogging about their experiences along the way, and for McCauley, he said his best thinking comes while he’s riding a bicycle. There’ll be some writing from his heart, he said, but he’s got what he calls a real “off-the-wall, zany sense of humor,” which will probably show up in his posts, too. “I think the blogs will show all kinds of emotional ups and downs that come with the experience,” he said. Visit their blogs at wheresmacnow.com or jqsbigadventure.com to follow them on their journey. The Coast News will be reprinting some of their blog posts periodically until June 24 when they’re expected to reach the East Coast.

tents, about 100 feet long, were connected to move patients and personnel. Each was color labeled for the appropriate diagnosis such as minor injures and stocked with cots, tables and medical supplies. “We can predict where we can and cannot go,” Welch said of the logistics. “It is set up so we can put it at any football field. We have several of these configured tents around the county.” Also part of the drill were stations for reunification of friends and families along with translators for non-English speakers and the deaf. Welch, meanwhile, is responsible for coordinating with state and federal officials to secure supplies


colorful ceramic sculpture is on permanent display at Rady Children’s Hospital. After remodeling my home in 2007 and receiving national media recognition, I launched an eco-friendly textile line of throw pillows and table linens. In 2013, Chefs Press published my cookbook/art book called “Living Coastal: Entertaining, Cooking and Decorating California Style.” The book focuses on sustainable seafood and features 18 different local chefs and artists inspired by the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean. Now my focus is on creative food/travel writing, ceramic sculpture and Foodie Fest. The event is being held in Encinitas, which has become somewhat of a hub of the North County dining scene and is a perfect location to host an event like this. What went into the decision to locate the event in Encinitas? I feel that the North County culinary scene is underrated and ignored by the mainstream food press. The Oceanside dining scene, in particular, is exploding with the introduction of new restaurants and microbreweries. I recently moved from Encinitas to Oceanside, and as a North County resident and food writer, I want to collaborate with the community-oriented The Coast News to see that the extraordinary, booming culinary talent of North County receives the recognition that it deserves. This year you are celebrating sustainability. Are the chefs required or encouraged to utilize sustainable ingredients in their offerings? Absolutely! As the author of “Living Coastal,” promoting awareness of sustainable food and growing methods is extremely important to me. I hand picked chefs that are on the forefront of the farmto-table trend such as John D. Miller of Bistro West, Samantha Parker of the Flying Pig Pub & Kitchen, Daniel Pundik of Local

after such incidents. He said the county has its own stockpile, but additional resources for large-scale situations require further assistance, which he does through various agencies. Although the Carlsbad Fire Department didn’t participate, Division Chief Mike Lopez said multi-agency drills are critical for all parties. “The fact we can provide the county with this kind of set up, is huge,” Lopez said. “The set up doesn’t want for minor injuries to inundate our local hospitals. They will get triaged out in the field and end up talking to a hospital or … they will say let’s take our patients to the alternative care center.” Bridging communication gaps and logistics

coordination is among the most beneficial aspects of the training. Because disasters create chaos and confusion, the more training for the professionals and CERT members, the better, Lopez added. Nearly every city in the county has a CERT program and Carlsbad’s recent crop graduated and was recognized by the City Council two weeks ago. Lopez said the civilian volunteers are a “huge asset” to the cities as they assist in whatever capacity needed from logistics to gathering and dispensing food and water. “Having our CERT members has been an addition to our city,” Lopez said. “Whatever the needs are, they bend over backwards. What it boils down to is neighbors helping neighbors.”
