RANCHO SANTA FE — Last year Lizabeth Weiss taught a meditation class at the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center. Little did Weiss know that in the following year she would officially become their assistant director. Terrie Litwin, who serves as the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center’s executive director, is delighted to have Weiss onboard and describes her as a wonderful addition. Weiss is quick to point out how she was introduced to the RSF Senior Center by her father, Dr. Joseph Weiss, MD, who often lectures there. It was her parents who suggested that she teach a meditation class. Candidly, Weiss shared while she grew up in the Ranch she never knew much about the Senior Center. “I’ve driven past these roads and “The Senior Center feels almost like a second home to me, and I want it to feel like a second TURN TO WEISS ON 16

Rancho Santa Fe resident tapped as new chairperson By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe resident Jim Peterson has been named chairperson of Make-A-Wish® (MAW) San Diego. His connection with MAW San Diego began when his daughter, Tina, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in her left arm in 2011. During this time, his daughter was 16 years of age and receiving treatment at Rady Children’s Hospital. It was their childcare specialist at Rady who initially introduced them to MAW. Peterson shared that his daughter was uncertain as to whether or not she wanted a wish granted. “To be quite honest, Tina felt like she had a lot of blessings in her life and wasn’t sure that she was worthy,” he said. Peterson went on to say how they encouraged her to consider the wish because perhaps MAW would be able to afford her with something that her own family could not do. And MAW did just that. Peterson’s daughter, whose penchant was performing, attended the legendary Grammy Awards. Peterson described the experience as “phenomenal” for his daughter as it boosted her confidence and placed her back on the road to recovery. Peterson is quick to point out that it just wasn’t the wish that “sealed their relationship” with MAW. It was the team members who comprised of a volunteer network and staff who made such a profound impact for his daughter. “Some of the staff members at Make-A-Wish recognized that Tina was

down and wasn’t able to perform like she did before her chemotherapy,” he said. Peterson’s daughter received encouragement from these special people and invited her to sing the National Anthem at the Poinsettia Bowl and also got her reestablished with her voice coach who invariably helped her regain her confidence. “I think that was a huge part of her recovery,” Peterson said. “I’m a true believer that Make-A-Wish doesn’t just make kids happy. I really do think it aids in their recovery both physically and emotionally.” Peterson happily shared that his daughter just celebrated her fifth year in remission. Currently, she is earning her marketing degree at San Diego State University. While serving on the MAW San Diego Board since 2013, Peterson is also a partner of San Diego
law firm, Higgs Fletcher & Mack, specializing in both employment law and litigation. Peterson described the MAW San Diego Board as phenomenal. “We have an outstanding Board that is mindful of our mission, first and foremost, and incredibly generous with their time, money and networking to bring Make-A-Wish into more people’s lives,” he said. Peterson added, “I can’t say enough about our Board.” Now serving as Board president of MAW San Diego, Peterson shared his primary goals are to increase community knowledge of the organization, increase their donor base, and continue their outreach efforts to reach more kids. “There’s still about 30 percent of the community that has kids that are eligible for wishes that, for one reason or another, haven’t found their way to our organization. A big emphasis of the organization the last year or two has been to increase our outreach,” Peterson said. Peterson went on to say while they continue on this upward trend in in granting more wishes, the organization will ultimately need to increase their donor base so that they can support their mission. For anyone interested in learning more about the MAW San Diego Chapter, Peterson welcomes the support. “We touch lives of children and their families that are dealing with life-threatening illness and bring joy and hope to them,” he said.

Association launches online survey By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association reminded Covenant members at their Nov. 3 monthly board meeting to kindly take part in an online internet survey. The end date for this survey is Nov. 15. RSF Association board member Rick Sapp addressed members in attendance. “We currently have… since last Friday, a survey on internet services that was sent to all of our mem-
bers by an email blast and it’s also on the Association website. We’re asking all members of the Association to answer a number of very basic questions on their internet, connectivity service, and also cell phone,” Sapp said. Within the first six days of the survey, 500 responses were received. However, Sapp shared how he would like to see more survey responses. “It’s a very important element for us to know exactly the state of services that every member has in our area in order to help design a better solution,” he said. From the first 500 responses, Sapp said, 88 percent indicated how they would like new improved internet service while 75 percent cited how they wanted improved cell services. “So there seems to be a lot of appetite for better connectivity,” he said. The survey data would serve as a springboard in trying to build a service map of the Covenant. Sapp
also pointed out how this would also help gather more information on where providers are supplying service in the Covenant area as well as the levels of service so better design solutions could be considered in the process. According to the Association, the short survey only takes a couple minutes. Once the survey was completed, Sapp said the plan was to schedule an open meeting to discuss the results. “Members can attend that meeting and then we’ll also give an update on the current activities of the Committee in terms of things we’re thinking about and principals we’re establishing for this project,” he said. “It is a complex subject, as you all know — it has changing technologies that are constantly being offered.” To log onto the Association website to take the online internet survey please visit RSFAssociation.org. The survey ends Nov. 15.

RSF Garden Club hosts quarterly meeting By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — There was a high turnout for the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club’s quarterly meeting on Nov. 1. Their new president, Phil Larsen, navigated the gathering at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. Larsen, who was voted in as the new RSF Garden Club president in July, made it a point to commend their previous president Fred Wasserman for his excellent work. A round of applause erupted for Wasserman who was in the audience. Larsen reviewed their financials and shared with members how the Garden Club was in a strong financial position. He then introduced their executive director, Erin Browne. After thanking everyone for attending, she then asked if anyone had noticed the new entry sign at their Upscale Resale Shoppe. The hours of operation have now been extended on Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “It’s really exciting,” Browne said. She went on to say that the Shoppe is always looking for gently used donations as well as shoppers for the upcoming holiday season. “Come in and see what we have. We have a lot of great items,” she said. Looking ahead, Browne mentioned a few near future events including a tour of Myrtle Creek Garden and Nursery in Fallbrook, slated for Dec. 2. She described it as a festive activity abounding with holiday décor. “There’s a lot of history at Myrtle Creek and this afternoon will also include lunch and shopping. They have a great gift shop,” Browne said. The last activity of the year is their annual holiday wreath-making event Dec. 8 from 10 a.m. to noon.

RANCHO SANTA FE — During the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s monthly board meeting held on Nov. 3 at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, interim manager, Christy Whalen reported a busy month of October. In the building and planning area, the San Diego County Board of Supervisor’s approved the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for three new roundabouts along the Del Dios Highway. Timeline for construction is undetermined until funding is available. “Our accounting department has been very busy,” said Whalen, noting that Covenant members should have received their assessments by now. Also addressed was how the Rancho Santa Fe Patrol supported fire crews on Oct. 30, during a house fire on Avenida Alondra. “The communications department has been busy as well. If you haven’t yet checked out the website under the Board of Directors section please do so. We are now posting supporting documentation prior to the Board meetings,” she said. Whalen pointed out that typically the Association will have these items uploaded by Tuesday, and then oftentimes, will have other materials that are convening to be worked on. “So we will add those as we get them, but the idea is to provide you all with as much information as we can prior to the Board meeting,” she said. Whalen explained that the Association is in the midst of looking at candidates for various committees. The four committees which have openings include the Covenant Design Review Committee (CDRC), Committee on the Natural Environment (CONE), Osuna Committee, and Trails and Recreation Committee. “We’re particularly
excited because this year we have more applicants than openings which is not always the case,” she said. “So we’ve had a lot of people step forward who are interested in serving on the committees.” Whalen also discussed the success of Rancho Days, which took place from Oct. 1 to Oct. 9, and included nine days of activities for 22 various

events. The Association estimated that the participation was at 1,400 members. “We were pretty pleased with the way that many of these events went,” she said, adding how there was a great turnout for the Trail Walk and events at Osuna. Also reviewed was Halloween in the Village and the Pumpkin Patch and Crafts on the Village Green. Trick or Treating took place at the businesses lining Paseo Delicias. Whalen mentioned the upcoming Nov. 19 event, Celebrate Arroyo, to be held at the 68-acre property. Events will include kid friendly arts and crafts, trail hikes, camping tips from the Boy Scouts and fire personnel talking about fire safety. On the camping food spectrum, there will be hot dog and s’mores stations. “So we’re inviting everyone,” Whalen said.

Will cities increase the cost of Internet services? By Jon Coupal
Why do city officials raise taxes? The answer, in some cases, is as simple as “because they can,” or at least they think they can. In recent weeks, a number of California cities announced plans to extend their utility user tax to media streaming subscriptions and online rentals. So, if you subscribe to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, Sling TV, etc., your bill could soon increase by the amount of your city’s tax. Utility user taxes average about 6 percent but are as high as 11 percent in some cities. If you don’t remember voting to tax Internet services, you’re right. Then why do these cities think they can get around Prop 218, the Right to Vote on Taxes Act? Around 2006, thanks to lawsuits and demand letters from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, most cities were forced to put revised utility user tax ordinances on the ballot if they wanted to tax cell phones. Such revisions redefined not only “telecommunications” but also “video services” to reach beyond cable TV. To win passage of these broadened definitions, most cities hitched them to a small rate reduction, which fooled voters into thinking they were approving a tax cut rather than a tax increase. That brings us to today. Just as people traded in their landlines for cell phones in the early 2000’s, today people are switching from cable TV to online streaming services. And, as before, cities fearing a loss in revenue want to tax the new technology. Citing the broad defi-
Ear-splitting lane splitters here to stay California Focus By Thomas D. Elias
ou’re sitting in a traffic jam on one of California’s busiest freeways — perhaps Interstate 5 in northern San Diego County or Interestate 10 in Los Angeles or the U.S. 101 Bayshore Freeway south of San Francisco — listening to classical music to calm jangled nerves or just thinking. Maybe you’re not stopped, but merely crawling along in a slow-and-go. Suddenly you hear an ear-splitting roar from behind and a motorcycle rips past with leather-clad rider and mere inches between your car and the rider’s bike. The noise quickly dies down as the rider moves ahead, and you are left to muse: What if you’d twitched to that side or started into a lane change? Would that rider have splatted onto the pavement? Were you inches from a serious accident? Never mind your feelings at that moment, or those of many others. What that motorcycle rider did, known as lane-splitting or lane sharing, will become perfectly legal in California — and nowhere else in America — Jan. 1. The reason: a UC Berkeley study that concluded in the spring of 2014 that motorcyclists are actually safer if they lane-split than if they sit in traffic, waiting out jams alongside the cars and trucks with which they share freeways and other roadways. As counterintuitive as it may seem, they are far less likely to be sideswiped while speeding between stalled lanes of traffic than if they’d gotten in line behind the cars and trucks and risked getting rear-ended, often a far more injurious event for a motorcyclist than for the driver of a larger vehicle. Said Republican Assemblyman Tom Lackey of Palmdale, a retired Califor-
nia Highway Patrol sergeant and co-author of the new law, “This is a huge win for roadway safety. We are now giving riders and motorists clear guidance on when it is safe.” That specific guidance has not yet come, but rules will be handed down by the CHP and, presumably, widely publicized before the law takes effect. As originally written, the law legalized lane-splitting only when a motorcycle is going less than 15 miles per hour faster than other traffic and forbade the
They suffered fewer head injuries than other motorcycle riders involved in accidents and were only onethird as likely to suffer fatal injuries. Only when lane-splitters went over 50 mph did injury incidence among them reach the same levels as for motorcyclists injured in normal traffic patterns. This is about what longtime motorcyclists expected intuitively. Wayne Allard, vice president of the American Motorcyclist Assn., not-
The new rules may not be specific yet, but don’t expect to see many lane-splitters ticketed in the near future. tactic at speeds over 50 miles per hour. Those specifics went out the window when motorcycling groups suggested the speeds were too tame, legislators preferring to leave the tough decisions to CHP experts rather than risk offending anyone who might someday vote against them. Previously, lane-splitting was a gray area, neither legal nor illegal, but riders were rarely cited. The CHP notes that driving dangerously — as determined by its officers — is always illegal. The idea of legalizing what many consider a disruptive, dangerous practice began with that Berkeley study, which examined motorcycle accidents statewide between June 2012 and August 2013. The researchers, led by Thomas Rice of Berkeley’s Safe Transportation Research & Education Center, studied 5,969 collisions, of which 997 involved lane-splitting. Lane-splitting riders were more likely to be traveling on weekends, rather than weekdays, and were less likely than others to have used alcohol or carried a passenger.
ed that lane-splitting cuts motorcylists’ exposure to distracted drivers in stop-andstart situations. “Reducing a motorcyclist’s exposure to vehicles that are…accelerating or decelerating on congested roadways can reduce rear-end collisions for those most vulnerable in traffic.” In short, a single study from one academic center has now produced a major change in California highway rules, with little or no consideration for the majority of drivers, who are in cars, not on cycles. The new rules may not be specific yet, but don’t expect to see many lane-splitters ticketed in the near future. For unless they are being obviously reckless, their seemingly risky practice has been legalized. Which means other motorists can expect more and more loud, flinch-inducing moments that just might translate into better highway safety. Or the reverse. Only time will tell how that works out.

nitions accepted by voters who thought they were approving a tax reduction, city officials claim they need neither an amendment nor additional voter approval to extend the tax to Internet services. The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association disagrees for several reasons. First, we believe Congress has adopted strong protections for a free Internet that forbid state and local governments from taxing Internet content. The Internet Tax Freedom Act prohibits state and local governments from taxing Internet ac-
free online services like Crackle and YouTube. Because the proposed utility user tax extension applies only to select paid online services, the tax discriminates against certain electronic commerce and therefore violates the Internet Tax Freedom Act. The second legal problem facing cities is that, in most cases, the services they want to tax do not have a “substantial nexus” with the city. The U.S. Supreme Court coined that phrase in ruling that a seller can’t be taxed by a jurisdiction unless that seller has some

The reason is obvious: convenience for the city. All the city need do is send out a notice, and these service providers become responsible for calculating the tax, collecting it, and remitting it to the city. Paid online providers, however, are not the only source of similar goods and services. There are several
physical presence in the jurisdiction. In the case of Netflix, for example, it does not provide the equipment viewers use to access or watch its content. Netflix does not own the cables or transmitters through which third parties deliver its content. Netflix has no office, store, or employees in most of the taxing cities. Without any physical presence there, these cities have no basis for reaching outside their borders to exercise their local taxing authority.

atteries have never been my friends. There are far too many types and sizes and they are fickle, fading out, without so much as a by-your-leave, and always when you need them the most. The tiny wafer-shaped creature that powers my car ignition remote just went toes up. I put it in my purse expecting to easily find a replacement. I ended up searching six major drug and grocery stores. Not one of them had the right size. Had they somehow discontinued this battery size? And if so, why? Mine can’t be the only 2014 Prius remote that must need one.

Batteries not included Ah. Order it online, I think, feeling just a little smug. I googled the numbers written on the battery and ordered eight of them, since they are so scarce. They were even billed as car remote batteries. Are you surprised? The batteries arrived, with the same number on them, but the wrong size. Dagnabit! Will I have to buy a new ignition remote? That will be $95, please, plus, it would probably have to be ordered and there has to be some cost at the dealer to sync it with your car locks. They might carry the batteries, but — well — I didn’t think of that, and they might not. I have faced the disloyalty of car batteries (constantly in my youth), flashlight batteries, TV remote
batteries, minivac batteries and even giant, electric, screwdriver batteries. But I did not quietly accept this trend. I finally armed myself with a slick little portable charger for my last old banger. The first time I went to use it, I managed to hook the clips up backwards, immediately killing it dead in a shower of sparks. Most humiliating. Having wonderful, outlet-free options in today’s world is a glorious thing, but it very much needs to somehow lose the risk factor. We need a loud early warning system on every single battery-powered device, right down to my tiny key remote. And we need to pass a law requiring that every store carry every battery
every day. Yeah, and they need to make sure every woman can tell positive from negative on her car battery terminals. So there. I’m getting all these on the ballot for the next election — because it wasn’t enormous enough this year — and I clearly need all the help I can get. The worst thing? I might have to use a key again. I well remember turning keys to start the car, searching for a clever person with jumper cables, and hand-rolling down car windows, but, my dear, I am simply out of the habit, and prefer to remain that way.

Encinitas lifeguards welcome new ‘home’ By Tony Cagala
ENCINITAS — Two weeks ago, the old tower came down. By next year, a new one will have risen up in its place. The old lifeguard tower on Moonlight Beach was, according to one Encinitas lifeguard, as iconic as the palm tree that’s been towering over beachgoers there for several years. Paul Giuliano, a lifeguard serving since 1991 and who remains a seasonal

lifeguard, gave a eulogy of sorts last week to the old tower where he’s spent many a summer keeping a watchful eye over swimmers. “For all of the challenges, that old lifeguard that used to stand right here served us well over the decades. It was freezing cold in winter and blazing hot in summer, but it was our home,” Giuliano said. In late October the old tower was torn down to make way for the new Moonlight Beach Marine Safety Center. A ceremonial groundbreaking was held on Nov. 4 to signify the start of the project. The new safety center is scheduled to be completed by early summer next year. “For many of us it was a difficult day last week when that old tower came down,” Giuliano added. He welcomed the new building, saying that it will become the home for some “amazing young men and women who’ve committed themselves to serving the public and watching together, over everyone who visits this amazing, old beach.” At the ceremony, Mayor Kristin Gaspar said the new safety marine center construction was 50 years overdue. She cited that 3.5 million people use Moonlight
Beach over the course of a year. “And so it’s really important that we have a good marine safety center to accommodate all of the visitors to our beaches,” she said. According to Capt. Larry Giles, the new safety marine center will include three major components: the observation deck, a direct connection to 911 communications to provide increased response times and a dedicated space for the Sheriff’s department to be able to provide law enforcement up and down the coast line. Lt. Paul Chapman has spent the past 11 years with the Encinitas Lifeguards. He said they knew the old station was beyond its point of usefulness. “We knew we needed something better, but we were still proud to work out of it. We never showed up to work and insulted the station we worked at,” Chapman said. “We were happy to be there, and we’d still be doing it with that tower if it was still out there.” Chapman said that the new tower will allow the lifeguards to provide a better level of service. He expressed thanks to the city for authorizing the new safety center, adding that the benefactors would
be the people that come to enjoy the beach. “We’re proud to be able to continue doing our jobs with better tools,” Chapman said. He watched with some emotion as the old tower came down, reflecting on the many memories forged there. “If those walls could talk,” he said. “There’s so much history. Even if you work one summer, you’re going to see life-changing rescues, and it’s emotional. It’s bittersweet.” The new safety center will also feature an 8-foot by 15-foot seamless glass mosaic on the northwest facing well donated by the Surfing Madonna Oceans Project. “It’s going to be a magnificent piece,” said Bob Nichols, president of the Surfing Madonna Oceans Project. The mosaic will depict a local marine habitat created by several artists, including Mark Patterson, the creator of the Surfing Madonna mosaic. Nichols said the mosaic would be an educational piece. “It will be a piece that people will see for years and years to come, we hope. And people will see this piece and they’ll go, ‘My God, that’s the beauty out there underneath our ocean,’” said Nichols.

VISTA — It was a serendipitous meeting during the Vista Holiday Home Tour that led Sandra Kelly to include Realtors Steve Grier and Dave Colley in the interview process to list her home. When the time came for Kelly to put her spectacular Vista home on the market, the Sea Coast Exclusive Properties team was the obvious choice, based on their experience with marketing historic properties. Beyond the home’s evident beauty and amenities rare to North County, Hayden Ranch house was also recently designated a historical property by the Vista Historical Society, further cementing just how special it truly is. Hayden Ranch house is rich in history, and was built over three years from 1929 to 1932. “The property was part of a Mexican land grant and was originally a 14-acre parcel,” Grier said. “The home was built using hand-crafted rubble stone gathered from the property, with the exception of the tourmaline fireplace, which was built with stone quarried from Pala. It has its original oak floors, custom wood doors and Venetian plastered walls.” The home’s 18th-century rubble rock construction is reminiscent of a flying buttress, since the walls are wider on the bottom and narrower at the top. The 2,156-square-foot home now sits on nearly 1-acre of land, has three bed-

rooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and also has a small studio. One of the bedrooms is an opulent master suite designed by Kelly, who is an accomplished interior designer. She renovated the property as she lived there over the last few years. There is also a brand new driveway
leading up to the two-and-a-halfcar garage built of stone with wooden carriage doors. This labor of love for Kelly included restoring the historical character of the home while simultaneously adding top-of-the-line modern touches and conveniences.
“She more than achieved her goal of honoring the home’s historical integrity, as seen throughout the property, with cohesive architectural detailing in the beams, stairs and other places throughout the home,” Grier said. When her restorations were
complete, Kelly appealed to the Vista Historical Society to have the home designated as Vista Historical Site #10. Unlike the National Historic Registry, this designation does allow for modifications to the home, which is zoned for animals including horses. Kelly also says not to be surprised to cross paths with roadrunners who love to run around the property. The home is perched on a hilltop, allowing for gentle breezes and sweeping 360-degree views. “It is rare to find anything in North County built before the 1950s, and this home is perfect for someone who values historical past and has an eye for design,” Grier said. “Owners have the ability to build an extra dwelling unit, stables or a pool since there is no HOA or CC&Rs. ” The location is ideal, and Grier says the buyer gets the best of both worlds. “It’s a large property, with historical character where you can have animals — all less than 10 miles from the beach. The sunrises and sunsets are incredible.” For more information about Hayden Ranch house, call Steve Grier at Sea Coast Exclusive Properties at (760) 573-4305 and visit mls.homejab.com/property/1831hayden-ranch-rd-vista-ca-92084usa to view a video with aerial and interior views showcasing the entire property and all of its amenities.
Eight simple safety tips for online shopping this holiday season Online shopping has become so common with consumers that it’s easy to develop bad habits when it comes to protecting your personal information. With the holidays, and holiday shopping, fast approaching, now is a good time for consumers to remind themselves how they can stay safe while shopping online. Whether making purchases on a mobile device or home computer, here are eight tips to keep your personal information protected this holiday season. 1. Use a familiar website. Rather than click on an ad, start at your favorite retail outlet’s website. 2. Look for the icon of a green padlock in the URL address bar. It could also appear at the bottom of your browser. This signifies added security. 3. Never buy anything from a site that doesn’t have secure sock-

ets layer (SSL) encryption. You’ll know if a website has it because it will start with ‘HTTPS://’ rather than just ‘HTTP://’. 4. No online shopping site should ever ask for your social security number or birthdate to do business. Provide as little information as possible to online retailers. 5. Check your accounts regularly, especially during the holidays. Don’t wait for your statement to identify fraudulent charges. If you see something wrong, call your bank or credit card company immediately. You may be protected against fraudulent charges. 6. Make sure your devices are up-to-date on their antivirus protection. 7. Be careful where you click. Avoid unknown pop-up ads or ads imbedded in unfamiliar websites. 8. Don’t send your credit

Arena sanitized for Las Vegas horse show LAS VEGAS — In light of the recently confirmed non-neuropathogenic strain EHV-1 cases in California, which occurred in horses that had attended a Saddlebred show held at South Point Arena & Equestrian Center from Oct. 27 through Oct. 29, the management, under the guidance of Leslie Schur, DVM and the state of Nevada officials, has ensured that all precautions and disinfecting measures have been taken. As suggested and approved by the state veterinarian, a full wash and sanitizing of all the stall areas using Synbiont Agricultural wash took place after all horses left the South Point Arena & Equestrian Center on the morning of Oct. 30. Since the sanitation took place, no animals have been in the stall or barn areas. The area will remain animal free for eight days. Prior to the start of the Las Vegas National horse show, Blenheim EquiSports will be doing a full footing replacement, bringing in materials that have not been used during the show in question. “I have been working closely with the staff of the South Point Equestrian Center and state officials to
implement the appropriate biosecurity protocols with the recently confirmed cases of EHV-1. Their entire staff has been vigilant with their primary concern being the safety and well-being of the horses. Based on consultations with industry experts, officials have deemed the facility safe for horses to return,” said Schur, of Desert Pines Equine Center. With these protocols in place, show management is confident that the South Point Arena & Equestrian Center has been fully sanitized and it is safe to proceed as planned with the upcoming Las Vegas National horse show, Nov. 15 through Nov. 20. If you have any further questions or concerns, call Melissa Brandes at (949) 212-8556. Visit showpark.com for the latest updates.

Skyline student needs votes to win cafeteria makeover By Bianca Kaplanek
SOLANA BEACH — A Skyline Elementary first-grader is trying to win a $30,000 cafeteria makeover for her school and is asking the community to help by casting as many votes as possible by Nov. 13. Six-year-old Ari Vega was selected as one of 25 finalists in the Ben’s Beginners Cooking Contest, a national challenge sponsored by Uncle Ben’s to promote cooking healthy meals at home. “My grandmother saw the contest in the newspaper,” Ari said. “I wanted to enter because I like cooking Ari Vega, a 6-year-old first grader at Skyline Elementary, and her dad, and wanted to win money Art, prepare pork chops stuffed with cranberry rice as part of a contest for my school.” to win a $30,000 cafeteria makeover for her school.

Parents with children in kindergarten through eighth grade were invited to submit a photo of them preparing a rice-based dish with their child. Ben’s Beginners created five cooking lessons with recipes to help families get started. They included a chicken, broccoli and rice casserole, open-faced black bean and rice tacos, rice and meatballs, cheesy rainbow rice with ground beef and pork chops stuffed with cranberry rice. “We prepared cranberry-rice-stuffed pork chops,” Ari said. “The recipe isn’t a family recipe.

A baker’s dozen of tiny libraries pop up throughout Carlsbad By Steve Puterski
CARLSBAD — Tiny is trending. From housing to boutiques, small is going big. There’s no exception in Carlsbad as 13 new libraries have popped up throughout the Barrio. The city and Pacific Ridge School partnered to install the 13 Little Free Libraries throughout the neighborhood. The miniature libraries house dozens of books for “check out.” On Oct. 27, Mayor Pro Tem Lorraine Wood, Councilmember Michael Schumacher and Head of School at Pacific Ridge School Dr. Bob Ogle attended a ribbon cutting celebration at one of the small libraries installed in front of the Tyler Court apartments. The city and Pacific Ridge School donated the libraries to encourage literacy in the community and to create a meeting spot for neighbors to discuss books. The libraries are re-stocked periodically by the school and were decorated by 100 faculty and staff members in late August as a way of sharing their love of reading with the community. The project also gave staff the opportunity to en-
gage in a service learning project, which is something all students participate in during their time at Pacific Ridge. Service learning allows students to practice ethical responsibility and gain leadership skills by engaging with the community. Members of the community are encouraged to visit the Little Free Libraries, take out a book and return it once they’ve finished reading it. More than 700 books have been donated and more will be replenished throughout the year. Local residents have begun to donate books as well. The libraries are scattered throughout the neighborhood, including on Madison, Tyler, Jefferson and Roosevelt streets and Magnolia Avenue.

Lazy Acres raises the bar on the North County market scene
f youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve not noticed, the shopping center on Encinitas Boulevard between Vulcan Avenue and the Interstate 5 has become a bustling, renovated mecca with a beautiful new anchor store in Lazy Acres. They did their homework on this stunning store and have everything that could possibly appeal to a health conscious coastal audience. I thought it best to connect with their marketing manager and Moonlight Room Director Gabi Romero learn more about Lazy Acres. Here are some highlights from our conversation.
So the first question many people are asking is, was there a need for another upscale, gorgeous organic market in Encinitas? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I am the best person to answer this question. I think I will let our customers answer this one. We are here to offer the best product and a better shopping experience.

Well, based on the response Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say there was a need! And it really is a beautiful place to shop, besides the aesthetics, what are your other differentiators from say a Whole Foods or Sprouts? Our store has an open layout meant to be easy to maneuver in and better accommodate customer-shopping habits. Everything is where you think it should be. We were intentional about our directive signage and calling out categories throughout the store to make things easy to identi-
fy. On the innovative side we have a variety of playful and delicious venues in the store such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Cookieâ&#x20AC;? (as you know our in-house Belgian chocolate walnut cookie, served hot). In-house popped popcorn, an observational beehive, and of course our Moonlight Room where we are offering cooking/wellness classes. Where did Lazy Acres start and how many stores do they have?

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed there are several local retailers represented with kiosks and mini displays, that are a nice touch, how did that come about? Community is such an important aspect of our business, so naturally we wanted to partner with community brands to offer the best local variety for our customers. Poke is huge right now and you have that covered as well. Tell me about the Poke Bar. This is my favorite corner of the store. The poke bar is everything you love about an authentic Hawaiian style poke shack. Superior quality seafood, over yummy sticky rice, topped with everything you might need for your poke masterpiece â&#x20AC;&#x201D; fresh, crunchy, salty, sweet, spicy and more!

dam Carruth has re-arranged the landscape in downtown Carlsbad Village with his second North San Diego location. He petitioned successfully with the city of Carlsbad to extend the boundaries of the Village along State Street, and now joins Campfire Restaurant and Baba Coffee for a fascinating group of hospitality service businesses. He has successfully operated Carruth Cellars in Solana Beach for some six years, offering Carruth Cellars wines exclusively. Carruth sources North Coast grapes from notable wine areas like Sonoma, Napa and Santa Maria. The grapes are then crushed, pressed, fermented, barrel aged and bottled at his local urban wineries and tasting rooms. He likes to call it â&#x20AC;&#x153;bringing grapes to the people.â&#x20AC;? And some very nice grapes they are! On the white side, you can taste a Sauvignon Blanc 2015 from Lake County with a pink grape-
fruit and apple flavor. A step up is the 2014 Russian River Chardonnay with a creamy cover for a fresh citrus pop. On the red side, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss the Napa Knightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Valley Carruth Merlot from the fabulous 2012 vintage, with a note of caramel to blend with the clove and currant flavor. In a recent interview with Carruth, he was ready to roll in the Carlsbad wine scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m open, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a work in progress,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Improvements are still being made. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really excited about our grape sources from Napa and Sonoma, and our Pinots coming from Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Willamette Valley. I can tell you that Pinot Noirs and RosĂŠs are really increasing in popularity here. My customers love the smooth, easy flavor with a finish that really begs for more.â&#x20AC;? I asked him about the layout of the winery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot more seating than we do in Solana Beach,â&#x20AC;? Carruth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy about the bistro-style outdoor seating that was allowed, plus the lounge for communal seating.â&#x20AC;?

ESCONDIDO — Whose line is it anyway? The answer hardly matters with this group of improvisational actors who have shed their fears and nerves, performing without any script night after night. Getting rid of the fear is what improv’s all about, said Greg Proops, one of the actors that’s performing later this month with Whose Live Anyway?, a live traveling version of the U.K. and U.S. TV improvisational show, Whose Line Is It Anyway? As a college student at San Francisco State University, Proops caught his first glimpse of an improv group and what they could do. After watching the performance, he thought that was something he could do, and so attended another performace the following week, where this time he volunteered to be in the show. “I did it and I joined them the next day,” Proops said. Already a comedian, the teen-aged Proops saw the fun, the spontaneity and danger of improvisation, and was drawn to it. Later, after college, while Proops was working a gig in Spokane, Wash., with Tom Kenny (who would go on to be the voice of Spongebob Squarepants), he got a call from a friend, saying this English show is in town and they’re auditioning. Producers for Whose Line Is It Anyway?, were in the U.S. looking for talent. At the time, Proops
“What people don’t understand when they first start to do improv or go on the stage is that failing is a big part of it,” says Greg Proops, far left. Proops with cast mates, Joel Murray, Ryan Stiles and Jeff B. Davis are performing Whose Live Anyway? at the Center for the Arts, Escondido. Courtesy photo
wasn’t able to make the audition, but the producers would return the following year, and he got the job. Proops would be a part of the cast for the show’s 10-year run before it was brought to the U.S. where it was on the air for four years on ABC. The show is now in its fifth year on the CW Network. Now Proops, with Ryan Stiles (most well-known for his role on the Drew Carey Show), Joel Murray and Jeff B. Davis are bringing their improvisational skills — the singing, the games, their energy and audience-interactive experience — to the California Center for the Arts, Escondido. But that doesn’t mean every night is a good night for improv. “It can go any which way, but with our group it doesn’t really, because I have Ryan Stiles in the group, so it’s like having Babe Ruth — he just points to the fences and hits a homerun,” he said.
“If we don’t get a standing ovation, we’re disappointed,” Proops said. “We really go out there trying to really whip it up.” Proops, who’s also an author and host of his own podcast, said what people don’t understand when
they first start to do improv or go on the stage is that failing is a big part of it. “And that failing well is a big part of improv as well. We never go out and set out to fail, but we also know how to make that happen if it is going to hap-
pen.” Improvisation, though, isn’t just for the stage, Proops explained. “I think that what people don’t realize is that they’re improvising all the time,” he said. “Every moment of your life you’re improvising — you’re improvising when you’re talking to your boss, or you’re dealing with your significant other. It’s not something that just remains in the realm of people improvising on stage. We’re always improvising all the time and that’s what people don’t think about. We just codify it and put it up on stage with games and whatnot.” Whose Live Anyway? is Nov. 12 at the Center for the Arts, Escondido. Tickets range from $25 to $65 and are available online at artcenter.org or by calling (800) 988-4253.

forest is really an essential part of the identity of what our community is all about. If our forest is not healthy, everything in our community is not healthy,” he said. According to Beckman there were two significant issues. One was the removal of dead and dying trees while the other was the planting and reforestation of a variety of trees that would thrive in the future. “The problem will not correct itself,” Beckman said. “We, as a community, have to erase the problems and bring solutions.” Beckman shared that the major impacts of a healthy forest in the community included aesthetics, safety, environmental and property values. The threat of a major fire and damage is greatly increased with dead and dying trees, he said. Beckman cited that studies on a national basis showed that homes in an area with a mature and healthy forest sell for 20 to 30 percent more than the same homes in an area without an abundance of mature and healthy trees The causes of dead and dying trees have been caused by a combination of Red Gum lerp psyllid and the prolonged drought, he said. Beckman shared how creating a professional strategic plan, which would require funding,

area and you have as many brands as I’ve seen in one place. I’m assuming that is really taking hold in this area? Definitely. One of the things I love most about Encinitas is how proactive the community is when it comes to health and wellness. Nowadays there are so many great brands brewing craft Kombucha, and endless flavor combinations. Why choose, when we can offer almost all of them to our shoppers! This week we rolled out our Kombucha on tap and we are always on the hunt for more local Kombucha brands to showcase. Culinary education is a big part of Lazy Acres and you have a large learning kitchen, what’s going on there? The Moonlight Room is a great addition to the community. We are offering a variety of hands on class, date night classes, farm to table cooking, canning, seasonal cooking, wellness lectures, crafty classes, kids classes — even some advanced kids cooking! Others include fermentation, olive oil making, cake decorating, and of course continuing our kids Master Chef course! My vision for this room has and always will be community centered.

T he R ancho S anta F e News was a valuable part in addressing this complex problem. The plan would have steps and timelines while identifying resources to address the forest issue. The strategic plan was expected to be completed in April 2017 and would then be brought to the community. In addition to the strategic plan, other ways to address reforestation were by way of community educational events, tree planting events and tree steward programs to help motivate and involve the community. “If we think somebody else is going to do it, we’re wrong,” he said. Lenehan who is a fire prevention specialist and forester for the Rancho Santa Fe Fire District discussed defensible space, tree health, and pre-planning an evacuation in the event of a wildfire. Defensible space referred to the initial 100 feet around structures, Lenehan said. There were two zones: The first 50 feet and then the second 50 feet. “For the first 50 feet, we would like residents to plant drought tolerant and fire resistant plants,” he said, adding how there should also be irrigation in this zone. It was advised to thin out vegetation by half for the next 50 feet. If mulch was utilized, it was recommended to leave a 12-inch gap up to
the structure and then fill this area with noncombustible material such as pea gravel. While the removal of dead and dying trees was critical, also was the maintenance of trees such as palm trees. Removing dead palm fronds as well as trunk fibrous tissues was part of this. And in the event of a wildfire, Lenehan said to plan ahead in the areas of family and pet safety, the collection of important documents and mapping out evacuation routes. For those with horses, it was strongly encouraged to evacuate early and being certain that one’s horse knew how to be loaded into a horse trailer. If one had time before their evacuation Lenehen said there were things that could be done such as closing all the windows and doors to their home, turning off the heater and air conditioning units, closing the fireplace doors and damper, moving furniture and drapery away from windows, and more. Again, this was only if there was time. Leaving before evacuation orders become mandatory was also noted. “A lot of people wait too long to evacuate and they’re trying to hold off until that last minute,” he said. “This leads to bad decisions being made which is why we always say to evacuate early if you ever feel threatened.”

It has been such a fun experience for our store to be able to take part in all sorts of events over the summer. Prior to the store opening, it was so important to our team to submerse ourselves in the Encinitas way of life and cultivate long lasting relationships with our neighbors, and we will continue to do that for years to come. In short, you will be seeing us around.

The team really focused on the customers shopping experience as a whole. Everything from the energy efficient skylights to the beehive and colorful product mix, we were focused on making grocery shopping fun again. So bringing in a lot of small local companies helped us achieve a true market feel. Shop any set in our store and on most occasions you will find a healthy assortment of your favorite popular brand side by side with local and organic options I’ve been seeing you everywhere in the community lately. You really seem to have engaged locally right off the bat, is that typical of Lazy Acres? Typical, no. Intention-

Weiss guides a group of seniors every Monday morning at the Senior Center for meditation. She has a core group who attend every week. “It’s nice for me to feel like I can combine both my worlds together in terms of giving back in some way,” she said. Weiss gives attendees suggestions for at-home meditation so they can maintain this consistency, as well.

It’s something that she yearned to do. “It just is magical that this position happened to be available at the time,” she

She’s also interested in perhaps introducing other engaging elements. “Like the meditation class, maybe there’s something else that I can bring that will be a little bit different because I feel like it is untapped territory,” she said. Weiss went on to share how the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center branches out of the Ranch and welcomes those in neighboring communities. “The Senior Center feels almost like a second home to me, and I want it to feel like a second home for people that walk through our door,” she said.

All because of Adelman, a marketing whiz at Callaway, which is based in Carlsbad. The former Johns Hopkins University baseball player turned to golf years ago and this made him the perfect person to construct the layout. It’s his second year of being the course architect and his work is well done. “We’ve added a lot from last year,’’ said Adelman, an Encinitas resident. “We’ve added seven greens instead of four and the tee boxes are at four different elevations And we added the ninth island green, which is really a tough shot.’’ It’s only 137 yards, but that doesn’t include the degree of difficulty. Try hitting the green that makes many think of No. 17 at Sawgrass from atop a stand on the Western Metal Supply building. The Padres approached Adelman two years ago to turn Petco Park into Petco National Golf Club. They picked the right man as Adelman constructed a layout with care and a carefree attitude. “That sounds cool,’’ I said. “But what do you mean? They said, ‘We don’t know. That is where you come in.’ I didn’t know if we were going to do a mini-putt course or a short course. But we made it so you can hit full
shots, real golf shots. It’s as authentic as golf can be,” Adelman said. Uh, with some zany stuff thrown in. One hole comes with a fan blowing 50 miles-perhour into the golfer’s face, with his partner spraying him with water. At another hole you have to clear a pond filled with ducks. That the ducks were of the plastic variety didn’t matter. “We believe we are providing golfers with an experience that they can’t get anywhere else,’’ Adelman said. “And at Callaway we hope that this would be a super cool golf experience and provide something that is really, really memorable.’’ That it does and the word is out. Adelman, 30, has been contacted by about 20 other sports organizations — NFL, NBA, racetracks — to bring golf to their venue. But it all started at Petco, with a North County company and a North County resident. “There are some other people thinking about doing it,’’ Adelman said. “But we’re trying to stay a step ahead of the competition.” Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@ aol.com.

Harper and Innocent Criminals free their collaborative ways had their strengths.” That sort of open collaboration wasn’t always the case when Harper worked with his group during the first decade of his recording career. “I think that was maybe part of the reason that we split in the first place. Maybe I was too hands on,” Harper said. “I think you could point to me being controlling in the process of not only producing the music, but how the shows came to life as well. There was a certain strength in the surrendering, or a certain growth, I should say, in the surrendering aspect of all of it. And I think it was part of the process in the separation, learning the power in letting other people take the lead, whether it’s in music or in life in general.” Harper’s first run with the Innocent Criminals ended after touring to promote the 2007 album, “Lifeline.” From there, he went on to explore several distinctly different musical avenues, with a pair of projects that involved full-on collaborations.

It took seven years for Ben Harper to reunite with the Innocent Criminals, and he says in making “Call It What It Is,” his new album with his long-time band, there was a fundamental change in the dynamic. More than ever, billing “Call It What It Is” as a Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals album was a real reflection of the way the music was made. “They’re all credited as songwriters on all of the songs, or on a good number of them anyway,” Harper explained in a recent phone interview. “Even if it’s one I wrote, they have a piece of the songs because they played on it. You would think producing as a collective would be its own challenge with too many cooks, but it turned out to be just right because not only was I bringing that same communal sense of community, but they were also. They were ready to, if you want to change something, be open to it being changed. It was a great collective, certain guys would step up and take charge on certain songs, and we’d let them. Then at other times, other guys would step up on other songs where they Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals perform at the Del Mar Racetrack’s fall concert Nov. 12.

leaner, more rocking direction on the albums “White Lies for Dark Times” (2009) and “Give Till It’s Gone” (2011). Both albums included several co-writes with guitarist Jason Mozersky. Then Harper paired up with blues veteran Charlie Musselwhite to create the stripped back bluesy 2013 album “Get Up!” It won the pair a 2014 Grammy for Best Blues Album. From there, Harper made good on another collaborative project that had been on his to-do list since he broke onto the national scene with his 1994 debut album, “Welcome to the Cruel World” — making the largely acoustic, folk-leaning 2014 album, “Childhood Home,” with his mother, singer-songwriter Ellen Harper. With those projects finished, Harper and the Innocent Criminals — guitarist Michael Ward, keyboardist Jason Yates, bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Oliver Charles and percussionist Leon Mobley — reconvened, making the reunion public with four concerts at the Fillmore in San Francisco in June 2015. By that time, though, the group was already at work on “Call It What It Is,” putting to work the more collaborative attitude and the musical growth the Harper and his bandmates had gained in the time apart. Harper said he wanted to start the album before playing live with the Innocent Criminals to create a forward-looking attitude around the project. “It felt so incredibly regenerative, not that I was ungenerative (before), Harper said. “It was truly a culmination of the growth of six individuals, and not the stagnation, and that is what has made all things Inno-
T he R ancho S anta F e News cent Criminals possible and provided so much open road for this band.” “Call It What It Is” is another musically rich, lyrically thoughtful and at times provocative effort from Harper. It covers a wide range of styles and intensities usually sitting somewhere between rock, blues and soul. There’s big rock in “Pink Balloon” and “When Sex Was Dirty.” There’s a ghostly near solo tune, “All That Has Grown,” and reggae with the song, “Finding Our Way.” “Deeper and Deeper,” is an edgy, largely acoustic tune, while the organ-laced “Shine” is funky and earthy. The title track gets bluesy as it looks at the complex issue of police and people of color, while the percussive, Latin-tinged “How Dark Is Gone” is another emotionally charged track. Harper said fans can expect to hear some new songs in his show, but the set could touch on pretty much any phase of his career. “We’re going to lean heavily on the catalog, and we’re going to also bring to life the new record,” Harper said. “I think we’ll dip into some in between stuff as well. We’ll do some Charlie Musselwhite stuff, we’ll get into some of the Blind Boys material, maybe even some of the Relentless7 material, have a couple, a few songs ready at a moment’s notice.”

S. Lenor Meyer
Dec.7 1925 - Sept. 11, 2016
Stella Lenor Meyer, age 90, was a devoted wife, mother of 7, and a teacher of children. She married Vincent Anthony Meyer in 1945 and they celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary last year. She graduated from UCSB in June of 1949 with 2 children, pregnant, and a teaching credential. In 1950, she started her teaching career at the Bellflower School District. In 1953 Vince and Lenor moved to Cardiff with 4 children, where Lenor started her teaching career at Pacific View Elementary School in Encinitas, and Vince started his teaching career at Earl Warren Jr. High. In 1955 the family moved to Rancho Santa Fe where they resided for 45 years and completed their family of 7 children. Lenor

changed school districts to the Escondido School District and then again in 1962 to the Rancho Santa Fe School District. She remained there until she retired in 1982, first as a reading specialist and later teaching various elementary grades. In 2000, they sold their residence in Rancho Santa Fe and built a home in Vista. After retirement, Lenor continued with her lifetime hobbies of sewing, knitting, cooking, camping, genealogy, and helping to raise grandchildren. Lenor and Vince also traveled great distances across the US. and Canada in their motor coach, relaxed on cruise ships, and explored Europe. They made many friends near and far and enjoyed a multitude of activities with them. Lenor was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Vincent, this year and earlier in life by her sons, Tony and Steve. She is survived by 5 of her children, Greg, John, Jeff, Elizabeth, Bill and their respective spouses, 10 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren. Her loving heart, strong determination, sound advice, and their welcoming open arms to all guests to their home, will be greatly missed. A private family gathering in remembrance of both Lenor and Vince will be held this Spring.
