“This is a real good benefit to all of our customers,” said Jessica Parks, Santa Fe Irrigation District public information officer. “The San Diego County Water Authority Emergency Storage Project is this pipeline from Lake Hodges up to the Olivenhain Reservoir. “That is actually a power supply because they pump water up and then run it down at night generating power from a power generator that they have so this adds power to the region and its energy for our customers.” Parks went on to say that now that the city of San Diego has direct connection to Lake Hodges, this is good for the region, because now they can draw and store their water there. The most promising thing about this amendment, Parks said, is that it preserves the District’s rights and also defines the local water split.

REGION — During an Oct. 29 meeting, the Santa Fe Irrigation District’s Board both amended and approved an agreement with the San Dieguito Water District and city of San Diego. The agreement underscored how the Santa Fe Irrigation District and San Dieguito Water District would have future “rights” to Lake Hodges’ water supply. This agreement had made a couple of rounds before arriving to the San Fe Irrigation District. The agreement was first approved by the San Diego City Council in September, and once again, by the San Dieguito Water District Board of Directors on Oct. 15. Representatives from the Santa Fe Irrigation District explained that the three water agencies will now have access to this local water supply, while sharing any financial costs. They also pointed out that Lake Hodges is considered a regional aqueduct system and serves as an important role in the San Diego County Water Authority’s Emer-

‘All Fore the Community’ Golf Classic is success By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Oct. 27 “All Fore the Community” Golf Classic annual fundraiser hosted by the RSF Community Center was a resounding success. And players are still talking about it. “It was a fantastic day of golf and exceeded our expectations in raising funds for the Community Center. The weather was perfect and players enjoyed a Mexican Buffet lunch, putting contest, massage therapy and delicious on-course food and beverage samplings,” said event coordinator, Kimberly Swaney. The tournament attracted 112 players and the “All Fore Fun After Party” drew in more than 130 guests. Swaney pointed out that their

title sponsors, The Mikles Family, did something extra special. “Our Title Sponsor, The Mikles Family, surprised everyone by supplying caddies for each foursome. Players loved that and everyone felt like a VIP,” she said. “Also, we did have a Hole-in-One winner, Travis Lee, on Tee #7 where Hoehn Motors sponsored an ancillary prize of Taylormade Golf Clubs.” The winners of the 21st annual golf tournament were: First Place Gross winners: Todd LaRocca, Sean Maloney, Hunter Downs, Tim Stauffer First Place Net winners: Ken Lehmer, Greg Motter, Ryan Motter, Kent Wright. “All winners were awarded with crystal trophies provided by San Diego Trophy Company, Gift Certificate to the Golf Club, and an


invitation to participate in the upcoming Randy Jones Invitational tournament,” Swaney said.​ Linda Durket, Executive Director at the RSF Community Center conveyed her thanks to the Mikles Family for being their Title Sponsor and such extraordinary supporters. “We had a wonderful, dedicated committee that did a fantastic job recruiting players, securing sponsorships and gathering donations,” Durket said. “We want to thank our major sponsors including The Tone-Phillips Family, The Wohlford Family, Clearstory, The Luddy Family, Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP, Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa, The Seltzer Family, SunTrust Bank, Wealth Advisors, Inc., Henebery Whiskey, Hoehn


Motors, Latham & Watkins LLP, Raphael’s Party Rentals, Wells Fargo the Private Bank, Southwest Audio Visual, Terra Bella Landscape Development, L&L Companies and Vertical Printing & Graphics.” Committee members included Billy Berger, Todd LaRocca, Andrew Schneider, Tyler Seltzer, James Tone and Molly Wohlford. Durket said they are grateful as well for their Tee Sponsors and auction donors. “And without the players, we wouldn’t have a tournament so we’re very thankful to all who came out to play,” she said. Durkett continued, “A large part of the popularity of this tournament is having it at the exclusive RSF Golf Course and we are honored with this privilege.”

Voters reject marijuana store fronts By Scott Chipman

Logjam ends, replacing Boxer could be first race of new era California Focus By Thomas D. Elias This year’s election is over, and the main result in California was not the least bit surprising: Four more years of Gov. Jerry Brown working with a Democratic-dominated Legislature. But the next election season began the moment this year’s ended, and every indication is that the long logjam that has frustrated ambitious Democrats for most of the last two decades will now break up. For Brown, about to start his fourth term as governor, cannot run again for that office and is highly unlikely to try for any other. Four years from now, he will be 80. He tried for president and failed while in his 30s and 40s, and no one over 69 has ever been elected for the first time as the nation’s leader. So as healthy and vigorous as Brown appears, he’ll be finished when he’s termed out in four years. At the same time, Democratic U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer may not seek a new six-year term. A fourtermer, Boxer has been considered one of the most vulnerable senators before each of her last three runs. But Boxer always won, in part due to her hard work. Her last run, in 2010, was typical. She held coffees in living rooms from Chico and Eureka to the suburbs of San Diego and many points east and in between. “It’s always hard for me,” she said in an interview while running. “Every six years, there are millions of new voters and I am constantly having to re-introduce myself to them.” At 75 when her current term ends two years from now, the onetime Marin County supervisor may simply retire to her current home in the desert resort town of Rancho Mirage. Six years ago, as she readied

her run, Boxer’s campaign kitty held $3.6 million. By contrast, a month ago it stood at just $200,000. Already 81 and now the oldest member of the Senate, Boxer’s longtime colleague Dianne Feinstein will be 85 when her current term ends in 2018. Vigorous as she is, will she want a new six-year commitment to continual redeye cross-country airline flights? Especially since the Republican takeover of the Senate will move her out of her chairmanship of the Intelligence Committee, will she find it worth the trouble to run? The regretful guess here is no. Add this to the depar-

and causes, become the next big-bucks, self-funded candidate? Will current Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti try for a top statewide office? How about his predecessor, the limitlessly ambitious Antonio Villaraigosa? And there could be Michelle Obama. She and her presidential husband reportedly bought a house in Rancho Mirage earlier this year, not far from Boxer. So despite current denials, First Lady Michelle, like Hillary Clinton before her, might try picking off a Senate seat from a state where she never previously lived. Of course, this sort of thing hasn’t worked well for past newcomers to California.

The upshot is that California is in for an interesting four years of politicking, with the old guard that has dominated state affairs for more than 20 years about to give way to younger people. tures in this year’s election of California congressional kingpins like George Miller, Henry Waxman and Buck McKeon and it’s clear California is developing an entirely new political elite. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, the former San Francisco mayor, and state Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris, previously the San Francisco district attorney, both plainly aspire to lead, although it’s unclear whether either will go after Boxer’s seat in 2016 if she opts out, or wait until 2018, when two top-of-ticket jobs could be open. They are not alone. Proven office-holders like John Chiang, the current state controller and newly-elected treasurer, may want higher office. Could billionaire investor Tom Steyer, long a large contributor to liberal candidates

On the Republican side, the persistent and spirited showing of this fall’s gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari makes him an intriguing figure. And San Diego County Congressman Darrell Issa has long lusted after a Senate seat, while Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin’s strong campaign for state controller could give her a future. The upshot is that California is in for an interesting four years of politicking, with the old guard that has dominated state affairs for more than 20 years about to give way to younger people. Only time will tell whether that’s good or bad for most Californians. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com. For more Elias columns, go to californiafocus.net

Ballot initiatives to allow marijuana dispensaries in Encinitas and La Mesa are soundly defeated by voters. In the city of La Mesa Proposition J would have repealed the city’s prohibition on the public sale of marijuana, and retail sale in the city. Proposition F in the city of Encinitas would have amended the Encinitas municipal code to authorize store front marijuana dispensaries in the small beach side city. Similar measures were defeated in the cities of Del Mar, Solana Beach, Lemon Grove and Imperial Beach in 2012. Opponents of the measures say this sends a clear message that residents do not want pot shops in their cities. “Every time San Diego County voters have been given the opportunity to vote on allowing pot shops in their communities they have soundly rejected the proposals. “The voters know pot shops are not serving the seriously ill, they are drug dealers providing drugs for recreational use,” says San Diegans for Safe Neighborhoods chair, Scott Chipman.

“Measure F and the other marijuana storefront initiatives were never about the compassionate use of marijuana for seriously ill patients,” says Encinitas resident Nancy Logan. “They are about profiteering. State law already allows for the closed network exchange of marijuana between a patient and caregiver. It does not allow for the retail sale of marijuana from a storefront. “These pot profiteers spent a great deal of money in Encinitas and then stole 40 ‘No on Measure F’ signs from private yards.” Marijuana dealer/ profiteers and drug legalizers are targeting our small cities to make money now and establish “big marijuana” markets in hopes the drug will be legalized in California in 2016. “The defeat of measure J validates community perceptions that pot shops have no place in La Mesa. “We are not willing to sacrifice the public health and safety of our children and economic development in our community to make marijuana more easily available in La Mesa,” said Dani Womack. “Store front marijuana sales send the

wrong message to our children, bring crime to our neighborhoods and cost cities both financially and socially.” Womack is one of several community members who signed the ballot arguments against Measure J. She is the Community Pastor at Crosspointe Life Church and Coordinator of the La Mesa Collaborative. Marijuana storefronts have been magnets for crime. Cities with pot shops incur substantial public safety costs and police and sheriff’s offices are not adequately prepared to effectively monitor and regulate them. And, while drug dealers and elected officials have been in conversations over how or how not to regulate illegal drug sales, teen use in San Diego has skyrocketed with use by 11th graders up 70 percent. San Diegans for Safe Neighborhoods calls on San Diego County Supervisors to rescind their ineffective ordinance and for the San Diego City Council to abandon attempts to regulate this lawless industry. Scott Chipman is chair of the San Diegans for Safe Neighborhoods.

RSF Library introduces weekly chair yoga By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — New to the RSF Library roster of activities is Thursday Chair Yoga and it’s garnering much attention. The class is being championed by Silverage Yoga and sponsored by Eveline Bustillos. The sponsorship allows for complimentary yoga classes. Teaching the class is certified instructor, Andrea Abney, who has embraced yoga for many years. She has been certified since 1999. Abney said the reason behind a chair yoga class is ideal for those who have balance challenges. It gives them something to hold onto. And this is important particularly for stretching. “We stretch every part of the body,” she said, adding how much stretching can be done during this class. Yoga at any age is excellent, but as one ages, it affords great benefits. Deep breathing delivers oxygen to various parts of the body; and, stretching and working the joints builds muscles. All these components benefit balance which is necessary as one matures. Abney wants people to know that they do not have to be physically fit to attend. Everyone who comes to the class is at their own different level. While some may think that chair yoga is a low level workout, Abney points out many are surprised of how much they can do with a chair because of the support. “You can work almost every part of your body very, very easily,” she said. The chair is great support for older people and for those who have not embarked on yoga before. If others prefer to stand during class, Abney tailors the session to everyone’s specific needs. Susan Appleby, Director of Membership and Development at the RSF Library Guild, has done yoga for the past 10 years. She

took part in a class with Abney and thought it was excellent exercise. “It appeals to all levels and ages,” Appleby said. “It’s really wonderful even if you’ve never done yoga before.”

When you do yoga...it’s like an escape from the real world.” Andrea Abney Yoga Instructor

During the start of class, Abney begins with breathing exercises. According to Abney, men are much better at breathing than women. Most of the time, women don’t bring their breath into their belly or deep into their lungs like men do. Abney teaches the

women in the class how do to so. The Thursday morning session lasts for one hour. And for Abney, giving oneself an hour is an absolute necessity. “Life is busy these days, and our minds are going in all directions and never stops,” she said. “When you do yoga, and just concentrating on your breathing and what you are doing, it’s like an escape from the real world.” In addition of mentally decompressing and getting stronger, yoga is also an opportunity for one to stay familiar with their bodies and be alerted if something changes. “After a class of yoga, most participants will leave with a smile, a positive attitude, and feel better about themselves and their world,” Abney said.

RANCHO SANTA FE — McNally’s RSF Estate Auctions Inc., is preparing another special event not to be missed at the historic RSF Garden Club. The success of its debut estate auction prompted the McNally’s to schedule another. The 2014 fall auction is slated for previews Nov. 14 and Nov. 15, with the official auction starting Nov. 16. “Well, this auction is very exciting,” Bill McNally said. “We have a wonderful, rare Tiffany lamp, a handwritten note by Neil Armstrong while he was in quarantine after the moonwalk, and a crocodile sofa. We’ve got some wonderful, wonderful things.” According to Bill, the first auction will begin at 11 a.m., with the second auction starting after lunchtime. To date, their current Fall Auction Catalog has been available online for a few weeks and they already have more than 200 bids.

Bill, and his wife Connie McNally, have truly been the auction pioneers in the area, serving as the only auction house in San Diego County. The timing of the auction could not be more perfect for the upcoming shopping holidays. For years, McNally Antiques has been the “go to destination” for unique gift buying. Now, the auction creates a bigger shopping demand. “We have something for everyone,” Connie McNally said. “We have things starting at probably $50, $100 up to $200,000, if you want, and everything in between. This auction is very exciting for us because of the great pieces we have.” Connie pointed out their exclusive items will include wonderful paintings, beautiful mirrors, statues, porcelains, and a great collection of Tiffany, Lozier, and Steuben glass. And if someone is at the auction for gift buying, she said, they’ll be purchasing a unique gift. “You can find a present

for everyone on your list, quite frankly,” she said. On hand, there will be representatives wrapping items and also movers who are adept in delivering specialized items. Connie wants people to know how McNally’s RSF Estate Auctions is truly serving a need for people who are downsizing. While they are nearing their second auction, they are looking forward to 2015 Spring Auction.

Skin disorders No. 1 reason for doctor’s visits in America By Stacy D. Tompkins, M.D. SPF 15 active ingredient

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably seen the doctor recently on an issue pertaining to your skin. That’s because according to a new study at the Mayo Clinic, dermal disorders are the number one reason people visit their doctors in the United States. From all other nonacute conditions, skin problems like rashes, lesions, acne and pre-cancerous pigmentation were top causes for visiting the doctor over a five year period. Researchers studied a medical database of more than 142,000 individuals, discovering in the process that skin issues exceeded all other health concerns like joint disorders or back pain, which respectively ranked as the secondand third-most reason to visit the doctor. Of the individuals studied, demographics like age and gender were nearly identical to that of the United States,

on a daily basis. For the face, always use an SPF 30 or greater to keep skin looking young and healthy. 2. Lather, Rinse, Repeat Keeping skin acne-free involves careful at-home care including the use of proper face wash while keeping your skin clean on a regular basis. Be careful not to overdo it, though; over-zealous scrubbing using harsh ingredients can exacerbate the condition. Use gentle products with active ingredients designed to combat acne. Talk to an Encinitas dermatologist if you’re unsure about which products are best for your skin. We’d be happy to discuss what products would work best for you. 3. Limit skin’s exposure to harmful environments Rashes and lesions can often occur as a result of exposure to harmful environments.

Fall race season opens with fashion, fun and fillies By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — With an opening day that began more focused on fashion than fillies, the Del Mar Race Track kicked off its first fall meet in nearly 50 years, with attendance at 11,513. “We got the first pickle out of the gate and it looks good,” Joe Harper, president and chief executive officer of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, said immediately after the first race, which jockey Tyler Baze won riding Wild Caroline. “The field sizes are good,” Harper added. “We have leading jockeys. We have top-rated horses. And the crowd is certainly beyond my expectations.” The Turf Club was sold out and trackside dining tables were 95 percent filled. Del Mar added the inaugural Bing Crosby Season — named for the actor who cofounded the iconic seaside track in 1937 — following the recent closure of Hollywood Park. Total handle for the Nov. 7 opening day was $8,560,127, nearly 47 percent more than Hollywood Park’s final opening day in 2013. The more than $1.3 million on-track handle was 129 percent better than Hollywood’s, which had an opening day attendance of 2,772 last year. Del Mar’s one and only other fall meet in 1967 drew an opening-day crowd of 3,909 and had a total mutuel handle of $389,571. The new opening day featured a Vintage Hollywood Fashion Contest that included more than 100 entrants vying for prizes in three categories: most glamorous, best-dressed couple and best celebrity lookalike.

Competition was stiff in the latter, with contestants dressed as Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable — who said he was there to bet on Seabiscuit — and Lucille Ball, a regular at the Del Mar track in its early days. Prizes included $1,500 in gift certificates for the Bing Crosby Grand Prize and $300, $200 and $100 for first-, second- and thirdplace, respectively, in each category. Tatiana Slepova of San Diego was the grand prizewinner, and she placed first in the most glamorous category. Connie Turner and Edith Leon took second and third place as most glamorous. Derek Larsen and Brenna Bidegain, Paul Allard of Encinitas and Kim Whiting of Del Mar and Helsa and Warren Gilmore were named the top three Bob Ellis of Carlsbad and Leucadia resident Ali Moss check in for the fashion contest.

best-dressed couples. The top celebrity lookalikes were Crystal Looney, who donned Doris Day attire, Dawn Gurghardt of Vista, who came dressed as Michael Jackson, and Pamela Everhart. Deena Von Yokes, owner of Studio Savvy in Rancho Santa Fe, worked with track officials to coordinate the contest. Many of the contestants said they usually attend the summer race meet and hope

the new season is a success. They said they liked the smaller crowds and cooler weather. By comparison, opening day at Del Mar for the past two summers attracted approximately 47,000 people. Racing will continue Thursdays through Sundays through Nov. 30. Post time was scheduled for noon but that was moved to 12:30 TURN TO RACES ON A16

Johnson knows secret to telling stories CALENDAR Know something that’s going on? Send it to calendar@ coastnewsgroup.com

RANCHO SANTA FE — In celebration of Halloween, the RSF Library opened its doors for a special afternoon of “Spooky Stories,” with storyteller and musician, Charles Johnson. The day before Halloween, children flowed into the library to hear Halloween tales and take part in sing-along music. Since 2008, Johnson

Sometimes I’ll get a couple of teenagers in the group that want to hear scary stories.” Charles Johnson Storyteller & Musician

has been telling stories professionally for both adults and children audiences. For the RSF kiddos, Johnson said he had a set of spooky stories to share, but none of them too scary. “Sometimes I’ll get a couple of teenagers in the group that want to hear scary stories,” said Johnson, adding how it’s all about balancing what the needs of his audience are. For Halloween, Johnson gathers classical Amer-

ican campfire-type stories. A blend of fun, a little scary, and an unexpected jump here and there is part of the storytelling brew. In just under an hour, Johnson shared seven stories and three songs in be-

tween at the RSF Library. “I like to open with the Hearse Song from the 19th Century, then the Haunted House Song written by a professional musician in Brooklyn, NY, and then the classic Monster Mash,” he

said. In between stories, he would segue into a song with his baritone ukulele. Johnson said the secret to storytelling to children, teens, and adults is pure practice. “You just have to get out there and do it a lot and figure out what works,” he said. And Johnson has done just that. During the course of the storytelling, Johnson got laughs, giggles, and a few jumps from the RSF crowd. Johnson said what he likes most is taking a story and giving his audience a slice of adventure

Could this be your solution to numbness, neuropathy or chronic pain? Do you have any of the following symptoms? Pins and needles feeling? Numbness in the hands or feet? Tingling or burning sensations? Weakness in the arms or legs? Sharp shooting or burning pains? If so, you may have a condition called Peripheral Neuropathy. Numbness, tingling, and pain are an extremely annoying problem. It may come and go... interrupt your sleep...and even make your arms or legs feel weak at times. Maybe you’ve even been to other doctors and they claim all the tests indicate you should feel fine. More Drugs Are Not The Solution. A common treatment for many nerve problems is the “take some pills and wait and see” method. While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include

pain pills, anti-seizure mediations, and anti-depressants — all of which can have serious side effects. My name is Dr. Jeff Listiak. I’ve been helping people with neuropathy, nerve problems and chronic pain for more than eight years. Neuropathy can be caused by Diabetes, Chemotherapy, Toxins, etc. It may also be compounded by poor posture or a degenerating spine stressing the nerves. The good news is that NeuropathyDR™ combination treatments have proven effective in helping patients with these health problems. Here’s what one of my patients had to say: “I had been feeling very sharp pains in my feet… they just felt like they were on fire. I just couldn’t stand it… every night for the last year or two. I’m so excited today to tell Dr. Jeff that four days in a row I have felt no pain

Bolts back from bye, headed for unpredictable stretch run sports talk jay paris The jockeying for postseason spots is heating up among prep football teams. And are ponies really running again at the Del Mar? Some things don’t make sense locally and if you’re going to bring up the Chargers, here we go. Like a pile-up one can’t peak away from, the Chargers remain a topic on their bye week. Coach Mike McCoy wants to veer everyone’s attention to playing Oakland and can you blame him after the Miami Meltdown? Absorb a haymaker like the listless Bolts did on Sunday against the Dolphins and suddenly everything is askew. The Chargers (5-4) put their feet up, but it’s on an ottoman with a three-game losing streak. Their jolt from the gate that included a five-game winning streak has vanished. What began as “oh my” became “on no” and which way the season turns is debatable. What was clear in getting blanked and embarrassed by the Dolphins was the Chargers’ lack of want-to. The question is have they hit “RB” and we’re not talking about Rancho Bernardo. Rock bottom can be a bummer, but once the backside makes contact, there can

be a rebound. The Chargers could be in line for that and here’s the positive spin. When the Chargers welcome Oakland on Nov. 16 — that just doesn’t sound right — they’ll likely look different. The ailing will have benefited from the down time and could be good to go. Hello, running back Ryan Mathews? What’s up linebackers Manti Te’o, Melvin Ingram and Jerry Attaochu? Cornerback Jason Verrett probably won’t be available, his balky shoulders being just that. But the Chargers could hoist a bugle and just maybe the cavalry gallops over the Mission Valley vista. Mathews is the key, his knee willing. Among the reasons the Chargers are in this muck is their ground game. A running attack is something for other teams as the Chargers consistently have trouble collecting yards the old-fashion way. That plops quarterback Philip Rivers in damning dilemmas and the results are predictable. Mathews, though, can’t run-block, which might cloud his contributions. Te’o’s feet have been his Achilles’ heel. Maybe they find cleats again and he returns to assist a leaky run defense. Te’o’s biggest feat could be helping fellow inside linebacker Donald Butler from his rut. Butler, once a Pro Bowl type player, has morphed into a shoddy tackler taking shaky angles. Ingram’s return from his

hip woes isn’t a given. His absence is among the reasons the pass rush disappeared Veteran linebacker Dwight Freeney gets close to quarterbacks, but that only counts in drive-in movies — kids, ask your parents. Freeney hasn’t had a sack in nearly two months. So the secondary sings the blues and even Mr. Sunshine, Eric Weddle, is clearing his throat. He eyes others pulling the rope and questions their fortitude. “If they don’t respond they won’t be on the field with me,’’ Weddle said. The bearded one isn’t the general manager just yet so we’ll let Tom Telesco pull rabbits from the hat. But there’s no eBay site to click for help on both sides of the ball. The Chargers won’t be getting assistance from their schedule. After facing the Raiders and Rams — teams, just like San Diego, once calling Los Angeles home — it’s no angels flight. Games with the Ravens, Patriots, Broncos, 49ers and Chiefs await, which again underscores why Miami was so important. Lose like the Chargers did there in a shocking fashion and the safety net disappears. So they’ve enjoyed the week off. We’ll track Oceanside, Mission Hills, San Marcos and Rancho Bernardo’s quest to stay in the top 10. And maybe investigate the Del Mar horses at the top of the turn. Hopefully McCoy earns his hay, devising ways to get the reeling Chargers ready for their stretch run. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@ aol.com. Follow him on Twitter at jparis_sports. He talks Chargers football on XTRA 1360 AM on Monday mornings at 8.

Torrey Pines takes home the Golden Surfboard CARLSBAD — Torrey Pines walked away with bragging rights for the next year after beating crosstown rival La Costa Canyon High School 13-0 in the regular season-ending Beach Bowl Nov. 7. The Mavericks had to hand over the trophy it won in 2013, as Torrey Pines took the title of San Dieguito Union High School District champions. Last year’s Beach Bowl saw the Mavericks claim the Golden Surfboard with a 27-0 victory over their rivals. This year, TPHS evened the score, earning one of the eight Open Division CIF playoff berths. The Falcons will next play in round 1 of the CIF San Diego Section Football quarterfinals against Cathedral Catholic High School Nov. 21, as they bat-

tle for a CIF championship. The semi-finals will be held Nov. 28 with the CIF championship game on Dec. 6. The Golden Surfboard, a work of art created nine years ago by students of LCC art teacher, Ron Lenc, is made out of a surfboard donated by now retired sci-


ence teacher Jerry Trust. The work of art symbolizes the SDUHSD and the history of the north-south rivalry, going back to 1974 and the days of San Dieguito High School. The current rivals’ school colors and logos are also represented on the Golden Surfboard. As the northern end of the SDUHSD continued to experience a building boom, LCC was added in 1996, and the north-south rivalry became Torrey Pines and La Costa Canyon. SDHS transformed into San Dieguito Academy the same year, with no football team.

averaged about $1.3 million per day. There were nine races run on each of the first three days, with 11 of them on the turf course that was installed in March. Four breakdowns during the summer meet on the newly installed track forced its closure for part of that season, although officials maintain the course was not to blame.

According to the racetrack website, “Trainers and jockeys responded positively to the grass strip,” which is “now fully settled and deep-rooted.” Jockey Mike Smith described it as “brilliant” and “one of the best courses I’ve ever ridden on.” There were no injuries on that course or the synthetic Polytrack during the first three days of the new fall season.



stated, “The updated agreement recognizes and balances the complex needs of multiple stakeholders, including regional interests, while ensuring sound management of a valuable water supply for generations to come.” The signing of this agreement by the Santa Fe Irrigation District was the last step, and once put into place, the agreement is effective immediately. “I want our customers to understand that this agreement is actually beneficial to all of us because having local rights to Lake Hodges water gives us a local water supply,” she said. Parks continued, “This is a beneficial source because this water is here, and it costs less for us to be able to treat local water than to import expensive water.” Parks also pointed out that the District is happy they were able to collaborate with the City of San Diego, the San Diego County Water Authority and the San Dieguito Water District. It wasn’t an easy task, Parks said, but they are delighted it is completed now.

small talk jean gillette

Countdown to the holidays has already started I will reluctantly admit that October is gone. Now and only now will I say out loud the name of the next holiday — Thanksgiving. There. But no, don’t do it. Don’t even breathe the C word. I don’t want to hear how many shopping days are left. I scarcely want to put away my Halloween decorations, much less contemplate hauling out the red and green ones that require a pine tree. Feel free to talk to me about stuffing recipes or the secret to perfect gravy. Tell me tales of Aunt Dodie’s Ptomaine Surprise gelatin salad. But if you start in about that holiday which precedes the New Year, I will stick my fingers in my ears and holler. Our very effective and valued system of free enterprise will see that I’m adequately reminded. That’s their job. Carols from the store muzak in late October annoy me, but were I in retail, I would do the same thing. It’s just that I succumb easily to sensory overload if you make me juggle multiple holidays. I refuse to consider that holiday-which-shall-not-benamed before the jack-olanterns are even fuzzy inside. It isn’t that I don’t admire those who finish their holiday shopping before their children have eaten all their Halloween candy. I TURN TO SMALL TALK ON B8

The power of words in full effect at RSF Senior Center By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Visitors at the RSF Senior Center were in for a special treat when Richard Lederer stopped by for one of his memorable performances. Being that Halloween festivities were in full swing in the Village, Lederer blended some parts of his newest book, “Monsters Unchained!” into the entertainment. Lederer is a “language” staple in San Diego County. In addition to being a U-T columnist, he’s the author of more than 40 books, and co-founder host of “A Way With Words” on KPBS Public Radio. When Lederer arrived to the Senior Center, about 25 percent of the show was dedicated to “Monsters Unchained!” Monster Power Point images, a flurry of limericks and songs to go with them took guests on a language whirlwind tour. On average, Lederer takes

part in about a 100 local appearances every year. And he admits he’s been a performer since he was a young boy. He thought the RSF Senior Center was a great venue. “Number one, it was a good demographic for me. “I’m 76 and that’s pretty close to the average age of the folks who hang out there,” Lederer said. “I embrace being chronologically endowed.” While Lederer performs for all age groups, going to a senior center was a great match. “I feel strongly that seniors need push-ups of the mind and aerobics of the brain,” he said, adding how his shows are a great pathway into learning something new. Lederer continued, “I just enjoy working with this group, and anybody who comes there, is making education a lifelong Wordsmith and author Richard Lederer makes an appearance at the Rancho Santa adventure.

A four day cousin convention in Abilene hit the road e’louise ondash


n the end, after all the months of planning, 43 cousins from 15 states gathered in Abilene, Kan., two-and-ahalf hours west of Kansas City on Interstate 70. Some of us knew each other; many of us didn’t. We chose Abilene, population 6,800, for our “cousin convention” because our great-grandparents, Phillip Oliver Lucier and Mary Villeneuve Lucier, raised their 12 children there. These 12 are our grandparents. (Except for two first cousins, we are all second cousins.) It was in 1886 that 20-year-old Phillip married 17-year-old Mary. She would see only some of her 12 children reach adulthood. Mary died age 40, a week after the last child was born. We are told that she succumbed to scarlet fever, probably transmitted by the doctor who attended her delivery. During our four days in Abilene, we found Phillip and Mary and several other Luciers in the treeless Catholic cemetery at the north end of town. More relatives reside in “the other cemetery” (read Protestant), lush with expansive shade trees, at the south end of town. The Lucier Family history is woven inextrica-

The 1910 Abilene High School football team included Dwight Eisenhower (top row, third from left) and Ralph Lucier (top row, far left), grandfather of E’Louise Lucier Ondash. Courtesy photo

Dwight Eisenhower was the only one of seven sons who was not born in Abilene, Kan., but he returned with his family at a young age and has always considered the town his home. Eisenhower worked at the local creamery after high school and before he left for the United States Military Academy at West Point. The man who eventually became a five-star general and the 34th president was first turned down by the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis. Photo courtesy of the Eisenhower Presidential Library

bly with that of Abilene’s, which has made its mark because of two things: the famed cattle drives of the mid-1800s — the town was at the end of the Chisholm Trail — and its hometown hero, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Allied Commander during World War II and 34th president of the United States. At Abilene’s Heritage Center, we learned that life in central Kansas in the mid-to-late 1800s was only for the strong. The extreme weather, tornados, locusts and loneliness defeated some.

One Lucier family story that has endured is that our grandparents were relegated on weekends to sleeping on the floor of their home. This was necessary to avoid stray bullets that flew in abundance, thanks to cowboys who were flush with liquor and cash after many weeks on the trail driving cattle. The Lucier family also has a clear connection with Eisenhower. My grandfather, Ralph Lucier and his brothers, Charles and Sid, were classmates and football teammates with Ike at Abilene

High School. And my grandmother, red-headed Ruby Norman (also of Abilene and eventually Ralph’s wife), had what one biographer describes as a relationship with Ike that was “close without commitment.” We gained insight into this relationship at the Eisenhower Library. Tim Rives, deputy director, was kind enough to make six copies of the entire set of letters from Ike to Ruby that were never meant for public consumption. There also are many years of Christmas cards from Ike and Mamie. Many of the letters were written during Ike’s West Point years (1911 to 1915). They followed Ruby as she traveled around the country with the Chautauqua Circuit, a theater troupe that brought culture to small towns that were otherwise lacking. My grandmother played the violin in a “girl band,” and traveled via train with actors and performers of the opposite sex — somewhat risqué for the times. Ike wrote more than once that he'd much rather be acting or traveling with the troupe than be confined to the West Point campus. I’m so grateful that my mother and aunt for donating the letters to the library. They are the reason cousins from our grandmother’s side of the family reconnected with us, attended the reunion and provided us with extensive information about my grandmother’s lineage. Ike and Ruby’s friendship endured for a lifetime. His last letter arrived the day after she died in 1967. (Ike died in 1969.) Ruby had lived a full life that included a happy marriage, two children, 20 grandchildren and a continued love affair with the violin. She requested that her letters not be made public until five years after hers and Ike’s death.

Dwight D Eisenhower (1890-1969) is buried with his wife, Mamie Doud, and toddler son on the grounds of the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home in Abilene, Kan. After serving as commander of Allied Forces in World War II – he orchestrated and oversaw D-Day in 1944 - “Ike” was elected president in 1952. He left office after two terms. Between the war and the presidency, Eisenhower was president of Columbia University and assumed command of the newly created NATO forces in 1951. More than once before running for president, Eisenhower announced that he had no use for politics. Photo courtesy of the Eisenhower Presidential Library

Mark Ransom of Anchorage shares a joke with Adrian Potter, co-owner and chef at Abilene’s Victorian Inn. Potter loves to cook and happily caters to those with special dietary needs. The nearly 6,800-squarefoot, three-story inn was built in 1887 by a town doctor and has been restored to its 1920s splendor. The wide, welcoming front porch and large parlors are perfect gathering places. Discounts available for renting the entire house. Visit abilenesvictorianinn.com. Photo by E’Louise Ondash

The Eisenhower complex also includes his boyhood home, a meticulously maintained clapboard farmhouse that still holds many of the family’s possessions. Later that day, my sister and I had lunch in town at Amanda’s Bistro and began conversing with a chatty white-haired lady who said she had known Ida, mother of the seven Eisenhower boys (one died as a child). “We used to visit her on the way to and from school,” she explained. “We’d cut across her property and she’d invite us up onto the

porch for milk and cookies. We’d talk and talk. She was the nicest lady.” Ida also may have simply been thrilled have the company of girls.

Odd Files RSF Education Foundation New director named By Chuck Shepherd welcomes more volunteers By Bianca Kaplanek

The Other World Series In October, another premier world sports event reached its climax, with one team left standing, rewarded for months of grueling practices, to the cheers of adoring, frenzied fans. The “world series” of professional team computer games was settled on a stage in a packed, 40,000seat stadium in Seoul before three gigantic TV screens and an Internet audience of millions. The powerhouse Samsung White team out-moused and -keyboarded the Chinese champions at “League of Legends” (which 27 million gamers worldwide play every day), using its fantasy characters to destroy opponents’ bases. The winning team took home $1 million of corporate money, but future earnings should escalate when idolized world-class players unionize and swing merchandising endorsement deals. Can’t Possibly Be True Carnell Alexander at one point owed about $60,000 in child support for a kid he did not father (according to a DNA test) and knew nothing about, but despite “successfully” challenging the claim 20 years ago, he still owes about $30,000. The mother who accused him long ago admitted lying (in that naming a “father” was necessary to get welfare benefits), and while a judge thus wiped out Alexander’s debt to her, the state of Michigan nonetheless still demands that Alexander repay benefits it had paid to the mother. Brits Behaving Britishly Bad Literature professor Thomas Docherty was back at work in October following his ninemonth suspension from the University of Warwick for “inappropriate sighing” during meetings with a senior colleague, along with “making ironic comments” and “negative body language.” (2) In October, Andrew Davies, 51, was ordered by magistrates in High Wycombe, England, not to lie down in public places anymore (unless genuinely stricken by emergency). Previously, he had a habit of making bogus “999” (911) calls to get attention, and when police confiscated his phone, he began compensating by lying in roads until compassionate passersby called for ambulances. The New Math More than 6 million students have downloaded the new iPhone app PhotoMath to solve Algebra I and Algebra II problems by pointing the phone’s camera at a printed equation. The answer, and the explanation, quickly appear on a screen, as a teaching tool — or for the students to show “their” work if PhotoMath is used on exam questions. The Croatia-based developer told the Quartz website in October that it is working on upgrades for higher-level math equations (though no relief is in sight for those chronically pesky “word problems”). Meanwhile, the debate has been triggered over whether PhotoMath is a dynamic technological advance in education — or a cheating-enabler.

RANCHO SANTA FE — The school year is well underway, and now that the official “dust” has settled, parents now have the opportunity to learn more about how they can help the RSF Education Foundation. Alexia Bregman, chair of the RSF Education Foundation, said since the start of the school year the organization has hit the ground running. It has a huge legacy to follow, and with it, a rich school foundation history. “The needs of the school community are always changing so there’s always something new to encounter,” said Bregman, adding how she has been part of the foundation for the last two years serving as its marketing chair. Bregman describes the group of parents that are currently involved with the foundation as enormously committed and extremely involved. “I mean these are the parents who really go above and beyond as far as their commitment to the school and their children; and, we have parents from all walks of life,” she said. Bregman wants people to know they have everything from top level executives to stay-at-home moms lending a helping hand. And according to Bregman, there is an ongoing need of more parent assistance. “We have a huge fundraising component involved, where we raise enormous amounts of money thanks to the generosity of the parents, and we have a new Community Partners’ Program this year,” Bregman said. She went on to say that parent involvement just isn’t stuffing envelopes for mailers. There’s so much more. To date, the RSF Education Foundation have parents on hand who are experienced in marketing, media, and graphic design. Other professionals who dedicate their time range from being lawyers, doctors and bankers. “They really all come together with the common goal, and that’s the fact that they have kids in the school,” she said. Bregman calls the parent participation a “level playing field” because of the fact that everybody has one or more kids in the

school. Above all, these parents are committed to the education of their children. Bregman wants parents to know there is a role for everyone and at different work levels. “The more we come together as a community, the stronger our organization is, and the stronger our school is,” she said, saying that the needs of the foundation are year-round. “I invite people who are interested in the foundation to come and sit in one of our meetings.” According to Bregman, there is never enough help. There are committees and groups looking for assistance at every level. From fundraising, catering luncheons, parties, to even organizing their new father-daughter dance this year. And the foundation is always open to novel ideas, as well. Bregman added that the financial commitment from parents in the school ranges, as well. Be it “highly generous” to a “token of support” it means everything to the foundation. Bregman said they appreciate all assistance from

monetary to volunteer time. “I think that the involvement and the participation in the organization is that there’s a level for everyone,” she said. “And our mission is really simple. It’s to inspire our children in getting an extraordinary educational experience.” To learn more about the RSF Education Foundation visit RSFEF.org or contact Bregman direct at alexia@vuka.com.

Since he took office nearly four years ago, Brown has been slow to fill vacancies on the fair board. In fact, the panel went about two years without a full slate of directors until June. Del Mar Mayor Lee Haydu, who was asked by board members and state Assembly leader Toni Atkins, to add her name to the list of potential appointees, interviewed for the position. She could be considered in January, when the terms of David Lizerbram and Stephen Shewmaker expire.

DEL MAR — Richard Valdez was named to the 22nd District Agricultural Association, filling a vacancy left when Ruben Barrales resigned last month. Gov. Jerry Brown’s office announced the appointment on Oct. 22, about three weeks after Barrales notified board President Fred Schenk he was stepping down. “It was a tough decision,” said Barrales, who served on the nine-member panel that governs the Del Mar Fairgrounds since 2007. “But I’ve been busy traveling all over the state, and it’s time for somebody else.” Barrales is a former deputy assistant to President George W. Bush and director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. He is currently president of GROW Elect, a political action committee that recruits, endorses, trains and funds Latino Republican candidates for public office. Valdez, a graduate of the University of California San Diego, earned his law degree from the University of San Diego, where he has been an adjunct professor in the School of Law since 2008.

Grauer School open house is Nov. 15 The Grauer School will host an Open House event for prospective families Nov.15, on its Encinitas campus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tours will be conducted every 20 minutes and interested families are encourged to tour the facilities and meet with faculty, administration, matriculated students, and current Grauer families. “This year, we are continuing to offer an online registration option on our website that allows families to simply checkin and queue up for a tour rather than having to wait in line to register the day

of the event. At the Open House, visitors will be guided through the campus by Grauer students and will be introduced to faculty, who will explain our academic and extra-curricular programs, including all-seasons athletics, performing arts, robotics, film, leadership, and community service,” states Sandy Merten, associate director of Admissions. “Our programs attract families who are looking for academic rigor coupled with teachers who truly care about the success of each individual student.

“We also offer outstanding support for independent athletes who need a customized schedule.” The Grauer School is a grades 7-12 college preparatory school that is the regional leader in the small schools movement. As a small school by design, with approximately 150 students total, The Grauer School emphasizes relationship-based teaching that stems from its small class sizes with a student to teacher ratio of 7 to 1. Register for The Grauer School’s Open House at grauerschool.com.

The ideal small school campus. The Grauer School is a leader in Small School college preparation and founder of The Small Schools Coalition. After a quarter-century, we know our learning culture gets results. Eighty nine percent of Grauer seniors are accepted to their first choice college. More important, they become remarkably well balanced adults. We are now completing a beautiful and safe permanent campus, painstakingly designed to support curiosity, academic mastery, and discovery. Visit our Open House-Under-Construction. You might find that our small school enclave for Grades 7–12 is ideal for your child. Open House Saturday, November 15 | 11:00–2:00 PM | RSVP: grauerschool.com or 760.274.2116

Students work on Give and Surf program A new school year commences and many exciting opportunities emerge for PAE students beyond their rigorous, cross-curricular, project-based classes they have come to know and enjoy. Students have the opportunity to get involved in sports, music, and volunteering. Service and making education come to life have been Pacific Academy's cornerstone for years. Pacific Academy embeds Service into the curriculum knowing the benefits that giving back can provide while also building leadership skills. Through student-driven projects, students will lead and participate in a variety of community service projects throughout San Diego and beyond. This year, students will be working on a year-long service project that will end with learning truly coming to life by getting to visit the organization they have been collaborating with all year, Give and Surf, a locally embedded 501(c)(3) nonprofit of volunteers that provides sustainable empowerment to indigenous communities in Bocas del Toro, Panama, through education and community development. Thus far, the organization, with the help of volunteers, has build the first community playground and

We offer enriching volunteer and internship opportunities.” Neil Christiansen Founder

library, performed community construction, installed a water catchman tank, and led all preschool educational programs. Give and Surf, provides substantive, handson, real world assistance and programs to the indigenous Ngobe people. Neil Christiansen, the founder notes, "We offer enriching volunteer and internship opportunities to give back to others and give back to yourself in the remote islands of Bocas del Toro." Give and Surf, Inc. is a small organization that “relies heavily on having individuals or groups come down for the experience,” Christiansen said. “That is why it is so important to build an unforgettable experience for the volunteer.” Pacific Academy is thrilled to join Give and Surf this year. Students will learn a great deal about Panama, Latin America, Nonprofits and more all

while proactively creating and living out their volunteerism. Pacific Academy is always looking for ways to give back, ground leaning, and make education memorable. Another wonderful example was led by our English Teacher, Mrs. Emma Bardin. As a part of PAE’s commitment to cross-curricular learning, earlier this year PAE English World Literature students conducted a scientific experiment using microfluidics and wrote a scientific paper about their findings. Their experiment was just referenced in a high-impact scientific journal this summer. Biomedical engineer Dr. David Bardin, who specializes in microfluidics and ran the experiment with PAE students, published his article in Lab on a Chip in which he discusses the microfluidic experiment PAE students conducted in English World Literature. PAE’s EWL experiment and scientific papers are truly cutting edge! With an exciting year ahead filled with more project-based learning and volunteering locally and internationally, now is the time for students to find their passion and seize the opportunity to be themselves at Pacific Academy, Encinitas!

San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering invites students, teachers to expo REGION — The San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering invites students, teachers, and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professionals to take part in the 2015 festival and EXPO Day next spring. Applications are currently available for teachers and club advisors for the Bright Idea Society and for students, a new STEM Design Contest. Full details and pro-

gram applications are posted on the SDFSE Web site at lovestemsd.org. The Bright Idea Society is an opportunity for STEM clubs or classrooms to submit an idea for a project from concept phase to inception. The SDFSE’s education committee will evaluate submissions and select a winning group from each of the elementary, middle, and high school levels. The winners will each be awarded a $500 educa-

tional stipend for materials and supplies to bring their project to fruition. In addition, they will receive the opportunity to present their final project at the 2015 EXPO Day, which takes place March 21, 2015 at PETCO Park. The SDSFE will also offer its newest competition, STEM Design. The competition encourages children to integrate art with their love for science and engineering

and allow the expression of creativity. This open call is for students in grades K-12 and college. SDFSE invites students to submit a design concept that is related to STEM for a chance to win top graphic location on the front of the 2015 Festival Week T-shirt. If chosen, the winning recipient will receive their artwork framed, along with an educational stipend and the opportunity to be seen by over 50,000 STEM en-

thusiasts throughout Festival Week. Launching in November 2014, the Nifty Fifty Program matches STEM industry professionals with San Diego County K-12 classrooms for exciting and interactive presentations. Teachers and STEM industry professionals can sign up on the Web site now and match e-mails will be sent in January 2015. Additionally, the all new STEM Ambassador Pilot Program will

invite two dozen college students to participate as STEM Ambassadors during festival week. Ambassadors will be paired with a Nifty Fifty mentor and invited to participate in classroom presentations. The mission of the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering is to engage kids in science and engineering. For more information, visit lovestemsd.org or call (858) 455-0300 ext. 104.

just cannot be one of them. I tried it one year and the results were just embarrassing. I began my shopping in early fall and then hid things cleverly for later wrapping. I found them in April. Their existence had not crossed my mind since the day I put them in that bottom drawer behind my old sweat clothes. My children found it quite hilarious that I (A): had completely forgotten that I squirreled things away and (B): they got lost you-know-what

gifts around Easter time. I, who would have preferred the extra cash, was not so amused. As if my shoddy memory skills weren’t hurdle enough, I was shortsighted enough to give birth to my first child on Dec. 5. The good news is she was early. The bad news is she still has a birthday just weeks before that late-December holiday. After 27 years, you’d think she would expect less, but no deal. She bases her expectations on the life-sized Candyland game I staged for her fifth

birthday. She has a special look reserved for those times I foolishly hint that this year we downscale. It could melt diamonds. Hence, my only survival technique is to take one celebration at a time. Even then, it requires a flurry of list making, furious shopping and copious labeling to separate what is for her birthday and what is held in abeyance for … you know… later. I know it will be here before we know it. I know you can freeze holiday-baked goods. I don’t care. So, let’s talk turkey. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer in holiday denial.

Italy’s region of Tuscany, while exploring surrounding locations. The group was given warm and expert direction by guides and organizers Giuseppe Rossi and Diane Wheeler, whose 20-year experience in leading Italian art tours provided enhanced perspectives to the expedition. The tour incorporated a series of cultural highlights through several Tuscan hill towns, including Cortona and Arrezo. A day in Florence began with a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery, which introduced the travelers to a wealth of Italian art trea-

At 76, which Lederer team members at the RSF Senior Center are the most devoted people he has ever met because they are passionate about their work. He went on to say that when he is performing, what he wants to evoke from the audience is the absolute joy of language, the wonderful gift it is, and how much fun someone can have with it. Richard Lederer “Language is inherAuthor ently playful and that’s what I do; and, it’s just also calls his “trombone the natural part of my birthday” year, he says

sures. Built in the late 1500s as offices for the Medici family, the gallery houses some of the world’s most acclaimed artworks by 15th century Florentine painter Fra Filippo Lippi, High Renaissance masters Michelangelo, Leonardo, Botticelli, Raphael and Titian, and Baroque masters such as Caravaggio and Rembrandt — to name only a few. The OMA entourage was privileged to have a unique tour of the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence — most noted as the home of Michelangelo’s famed sculptural masterpiece David — by art restoration specialist Cinzia Parnigoni of Milan. Ms. Parnigoni, who in 2004 was selected for the daunting responsibility of single-handedly restoring Michelangelo’s David, described in detail the experience of having in her care for nine months one of the world’s most recognized and beloved art treasures. Her many challenges included correcting, when possible, the extensive damage caused by previous restorers. The group travelled to

Rome for a tour of the Borghese Gallery led by noted art critic Alfio Borghese, member of the family of art patrons prominent in Italy since the 13th century. The Gallery houses world-renowned treasures including works by Renaissance painters Caravaggio, Titian and Raphael, as well as numerous works by Baroque sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Mr. Borghese delighted the group with personal anecdotes of his influential family, the colorful acquisition history of many pieces in the magnificent art collection, and of the Gallery built in the early 1600s. A memorable feature of the Italian excursion was a visit to OMA’s first international and traveling exhibition “California Dreaming: An International Portrait of Southern California,” on exhibit near Rome at the Palazzo della Provincia di Frosinone. The group was welcomed for a reception by the newly elected president of the province and over 100 enthusiastic Italian guests. The exhibition of 54 artworks sponsored by the Oceanside Museum of Art

the secret of his unlimited energy is to define the difference of “who you are” and “what you do.” And when he’s performing, and witnesses the brightness of the “ah-ha moment” in the eyes of his audience, that is indeed a defining moment. “When they leave, I would like that their lives are slightly changed and that they appreciate even more in this particular case the joy of language,” he said. “Language is like the air we breathe. It’s visible. It’s all around us. We can’t get along without it, but we do take it for granted.” created an outpouring of excitement and interest in American artwork by the Italian community. Exhibiting American artists Sharon Allicotti, Young Summers and Mary-Austin Klein were warmly greeted by a crowd eager to learn about their artwork on display. The band of gratified travelers has returned home while the “California Dreaming” exhibition continues its return trip from Italy. The exhibition will be on display at OMA from Dec. 6, through March 29, 2015, prior to its final display at the Riverside Museum of Art through July 2015. Several members of the OMA travel group will be present at the mega-reception at Oceanside Museum of Art, which will feature five exhibitions including “California Dreaming,” Dec.6 from 6 to 9 p.m. Kay Colvin is director of L Street Fine Art Gallery in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, and specializes in promoting emerging and mid-career artists.

Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it is illegal to request any money before delivering its service.
