4 horses die at Del Mar Racetrack sees first racing deaths of ’19 By City News Service

DEL MAR — A racehorse injured at the Del Mar Racetrack last week was euthanized Nov. 18 after developing acute laminitis in both hind legs. Princess Dorian suffered a leg fracture at Del Mar on Nov. 10, the same day 3-year-old gelding Ghost Street and 3-year-old colt Prayer Warrior suffered catastrophic injuries at the track. Before last week, no horses had died at Del Mar during racing over the course of 2019. Princess Dorian was taken to the San Luis Rey Equine Hospital, which is adjacent to the San Luis Rey Downs training center. She underwent surgery the following day and her condition appeared to be improving prior to the development of laminitis, a painful inflammation of the hoof that can cause irreparable damage to a horse's ability to walk. As recently as Sunday, her trainer and co-owner Andrew Learner had told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the horse was expected to make a full recovery. “The vets said it came out of left field,” Lerner told the Daily Racing Form on Monday morning. “She became very uncomfortTURN TO DEL MAR ON 5

Fairbanks Ranch home lost to fire By City News Service

RANCHO SANTA FE — A blaze gutted a mansion valued at $11 million in the Fairbanks Ranch neighborhood and caused portions of the roof to collapse, authorities said Nov. 18. Crews responded shortly after 8:20 p.m. Sunday to a two-story home in the 6800 block of Spyglass Lane, near the Farms Golf Club, according to the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District. Firefighters arrived to find smoke and flames coming from the back of the home, district spokeswoman Julie Taber said. There was a cleaning crew inside around the time that the fire started, but they were able to get out safely, Taber said. No other structures were threatened and no injuries were reported. Crews knocked down the flames by 10:10 p.m., according to the Fire District. Portions of the roof collapsed and there was significant damage to the 20,000-squarefoot house, NBC7 reported. The residence was deemed a total loss because of the extensive damage, Taber said.

‘Typewriter Troubadour’ writes custom poetry in RSF By Alexander Wehrung

RANCHO SANTA FE — Jeremy Brownlowe sat down at his table tucked into a corner of the lobby of the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe with his emerald-green typewriter and waited. The poet, dressed in suspenders and bow-tie, greeted guests as they walked on by and answered more than a few questions regarding the location of the

bathroom. During his periods of downtime, he’d clack out the lines to a poem for his first customer: Henry, a shy boy who likes trains. The Nov. 17 event marked the first in a series of Sunday poetic outings at the Inn for Brownlowe, in which he sells personalized poems to customers for $10. “I just love how [Rancho Santa Fe’s] this hidden gem up in the

canyons,” Brownlowe said. “I had no idea it was like this until I came up here. “I love the country, back-roads vibe. It’s awesome that they have ranches and horses and...yeah, it’s like this little hidden pocket, and it kind of has this lost-in-time sort of vibe.” As a self-proclaimed ‘old soul’ who carts around a typewriter, Brownlowe said it would make

sense that he’d be drawn to such a place. Though he has no formal education in poetry, Brownlowe very much enjoys what he does; he feels that crafting poems on a vintage machine gives his poems a particular aura that is unlike other poems. Brownlowe also sends his cusTURN TO POETRY ON 19

Quiki King wastes no time in embracing new cancer treatment By Jemma Samala

RANCHO SANTA FE — When faced with the news that he had stage 1 prostate cancer, the Quiki King, Mehrdad “Mitch” Moshtagi made a quick decision to undergo a relatively new technology using SpaceOAR Hydrogel. Moshtagi has now recovered without suffering any side effects, and is “actively retired” working out of his home in the Rancho Santa Fe Farms. Moshtagi’s luck in finding his cancer early took work. With a history of cancer in the family, and a higher than normal PSA reading (a test looking for signs of prostate cancer) 20 years ago, he knew he had to keep an eye on his health. From that point on, he regularly had his PSA levels checked. Then suddenly last year, it was up to 15 — the diagnosis was cancer. When presented with the opportunity to undergo the SpaceOAR treatment, Mitch said he had no hesitation. Primarily he wanted to “avoid the knife,” a strong recommendation by relatives and doctor friends who had cancer in the past. The procedure Moshtagi underwent uses the SpaceOAR Hydrogel to create a temporary space between the prostate and rectum, reducing the radiation to the area in focus. By doing so, the patient can usually avoid side effects typically caused by radiation hitting other surrounding organs. Those side effects typically consist of urinary and fecal incontinence and sexual function. After six months the gel is naturally absorbed by the body. And the procedure is quick. Moshtagi remembered when he had the procedure in December 2018, he didn’t even realize it

had started, and when over, he thought “they were just taking a break.” Plus, there’s no need for general anesthesia. Afterward, he said only felt discomfort for a day, and a month later he said his PSA levels dropped to 2.4. Now they are zero. No need for antibiotics, no infections, no side effects. With prostate cancer being the most common cancer for American men, and with one in nine men during their lifetime being diagnosed, monitoring PSA levels is important. “I recommend that regular prostate cancer screening be a top priority,” Moshtagi’s oncologist, Dr. Reza

Shirazi, said. “Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men, with more than 183,000 new cases diagnosed each year. It is a serious disease that can take lives, but it is highly treatable and five-year survival rates are about 98% for early-stage prostate cancer.” While Moshtagi quickly overcame cancer, he’s not a stranger to doing things quickly — hence the Quiki King moniker. He earned the Quiki King title when he developed the 10-minute oil change in the 1980s and opened his Quiki Oil Change centers. Soon thereafter, he started the Quiki Oil

Change franchise. Much like new health procedures, the 10-minute oil change was a concept met with many doubts. Moshtagi recalled a story, when a woman’s husband, who came in for a service, thought that Moshtagi had hoodwinked his wife and did nothing to the car. Moshtagi showed the man how he did the oil change not only in 10 minutes, but cleanly while wearing a suit. The man was easily converted into a Quiki Oil Change fan. Moshtagi has always been an innovative entrepreneur, opening vegetarian restaurants before it was a popular culinary trend, car

washes and the quick oil change services. And when a business enterprise did not succeed, he said he figured out his mistakes and continued forward, whether that be closing a restaurant or starting anew. That’s his lifelong attitude — stay active. “You need a Monday morning purpose,” he said. “I don’t believe in retirement. I work harder, but don’t have to. I am lucky in I can do what I want.” These days his focus is in construction. He’s converting one of his commercial buildings he owns in Mission Valley to residential housing. You can see the passion in his eyes when he describes how he enjoys the concept of “pouring concrete and seeing how it builds up to be a home.” The oil change pioneer has built up his own solid foundation for himself and his family. Not bad for a son of Iran who started out as a dishwasher when arriving to the United States. And when reflecting about his cancer scare, Moshtagi strongly affirms that “cancer doesn’t scare me, because I’ve lived my life. I have no regrets and there’s nothing more I need to accomplish.” Recently, he’s been putting together his memoirs, which has been therapeutic for him, “remembering what I was when first entering the United States, and the simple things.” There’s nothing simple about Moshtagi, and his fight with cancer may have ended quickly, but it resulted from many, many years of monitoring. He saw the need to need to regularly check his health, and it paid off. Much like he saw a need for quick oil changes and it paid off. We will bow to the king, as he now slowly enjoys his active retirement.

Can money, new dwellings stem homelessness in state?


Thank you to our firefighters


he past few weeks have seemed like a ticking time bomb. While the winds howled and the temperatures rose, the likelihood increased that a major wildfire could devastate our region. Two fires broke out a couple of weeks ago, one in Ramona and the other in Valley Center. Each had the potential to grow into major events, except within a few minutes, helicopters were in the air and boots were on the ground. During my first 10 months on the Board of Supervisors much of my time has been spent on fire safety. County staff works comprehensively with Cal Fire, preparing for the worst. One of the biggest things I’ve learned is the key to

around the county Jim Desmond fire safety is getting ahead. That’s why I initiated Board of Supervisors action to enter into an agreement with SDG&E to have a helicopter that’s pre-positioned in North County. In March, Chairwoman Dianne Jacob and I brought forward a proposal to increase fire safety enhancements to strengthen fire safety for existing and future communities. Most importantly, we are using the newest technologies to help identify

and fight fires. Two of the biggest differences between now and the past fires that have devastated our region are: First, we can identify fires seconds after they start around the County and, second, we have the air support to work 24/7. These tools can’t prevent fires, but they give our brave men and women more assets to use in their response. I want to thank all those who battled the Santa Ana conditions to keep San Diego County safe and I will continue to fight to get whatever is necessary to protect lives and property in our region. Jim Desmond represents District 5 on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors

What’s up with daylight saving time? By Marie Waldron

Last November, 60% of California voters passed Proposition 7, aimed at eliminating the bi-annual tradition of moving clocks back in the fall and forward in the spring. Daylight saving time was first imposed as a temporary energy saving measure during World War I, and was re-instated during World War II. After World War II ended, states were allowed to decide the issue, and in 1949, voters approved Proposition 12, permanently establishing daylight saving time in our state. Since the voters authorized daylight saving time, only the voters could approve any changes. Under the terms of Proposition 7, California voters asked the Legislature to introduce a bill changing the times and dates of daylight saving time, in compliance with federal laws. As a result, Assembly Bill 7 was introduced last year by Assemblyman Kansan Chu (D–San Jose), to authorize permanent yearround daylight saving time. AB 7, which required a

two-thirds vote, passed the Assembly without opposition, but the Legislature adjourned for the year before the Senate could take action. The Senate is likely to hear the bill early next year, but once AB 7 becomes law, there will still be one more hurdle. Federal law allows states to adopt year-round standard time (as in Arizona), but the law does not permit year-round daylight saving time. California is one of 14 states that have recently introduced legislation to shift to permanent daylight saving time, and several bills are pending in Congress that would allow states to make this move. AB 7’s prospects look bright next year, but we will still need an OK from Congress. Was this the last time we’ll need to “fall back,” or will next spring be the last time we “spring forward”? Time will tell.

every student wants to go to a traditional college. Even so, California schools often focus on sending kids to colleges and universities, with less emphasis on trades. We have a skilled worker shortage in California, and we need to make sure that high school students have the opportunity to learn technical skills that can lead to well-paying jobs after they graduate. That’s why Career Technical Education is so important. To help meet this need, last session I was an author of AB 1111, which will help ensure students have access to quality technical courses that provide the training to work for companies requiring highly skilled workers and $15 million in the budget to pay for it. With almost 20% of California’s population living below the poverty level, we should do all we can to expand the pool of skilled, well-paid workers.

Opportunity for all Access to a quality eduAssembly Republican cation is the best way to enLeader Marie Waldron, sure our students a bright, R-Escondido, represents the successful future. But one 75th Assembly District in the size does not fit all, and not California Legislature.

alifornians are about to find out whether money and new apartment-style dwellings can do much about the state’s expanding and seemingly intransigent problem with homelessness. As ad hoc encampments proliferate, featuring everything from small pop tents to excrement in the streets and chop shops where parts are taken from stolen bicycles and sold, politicians have begun throwing money at the depressing scene. The newest state budget allocates $650 million to local governments for helping the homeless, while another $1.7 billion-plus is earmarked for drug and mental health treatment and other homeless services. Los Angeles alone has more than 10,000 new rooms under construction or in the planning phase for use by the currently homeless. There’s little doubt about the severity of the problem or its causes, ranging from job losses to recent prison releases, low wages, drug addiction, alcoholism, family disputes, rent increases, domestic violence and mental health issues including post-traumatic stress disorders affecting war veterans. The scope is enormous. Of the more than 570,000 people sleeping in American streets, cars or other places unsuited for human habitation, more than 114,000 are in California. That puts one-fifth of homeless Americans here, while the state has only a bit more than 10% of the national populace. So far, providing small dwelling units for them has not solved the problem. Said one city official in the homeless mecca of Santa Monica, “For every one we

california focus thomas d. elias manage to house, two more will arrive shortly after.” Or, as a member of the state’s new commission to investigate homelessness remarked in a radio interview, “If we house 33 people in new units, another 150 will arrive on the streets the next day.” The problem drew tweeted attention from President Trump, who caught sight of a couple of homeless encampments as his motorcade drove last fall from a helicopter at the Santa Monica Airport to several Los Angeles fund-raisers. He saw others on a fund-raising visit to San Francisco. Trump blasted state and local officials, mostly because almost all are Democrats who usually oppose him. Meanwhile, he proposes reducing the federal investment in housing vouchers which are probably the foremost tool cities and counties can use to provide private space for the unhoused, many of whom shy away from mass homeless shelters lacking privacy or partitions. And yes, California’s state and local investment in fighting homelessness amounts to more than onethird of the $6 billion the federal government spends on the problem. City and county officials here say their problem could be eased considerably if Trump and Housing Secretary Ben Carson provide 50,000 new rent vouchers through two existing programs. A letter to Trump from Gov. Gavin Newsom and other California officials after Trump’s blast

at the state’s homelessness also suggested the value of vouchers should be upped because of high rents. Newsom asserted those vouchers could “eliminate veteran homelessness in the state,” where about 15,000 former military personnel sleep outside or in cars every night. So far, no response from Trump, who appears preoccupied with staving off impeachment. The Department of Housing and Urban Development also did not respond. So as winter approaches, there is no significant relief in sight for the homeless, despite all the state tax dollars being spent and a new state law exempting proposed developments to house the homeless from environmental reviews until 2025. Lest Californians rely on the urban myth that most of the homeless prefer to stay that way, one recent study showed that 34% of them say their problem would be solved with employment assistance and another 31% say all it would take to get them inside is substantial help paying rent. Without doubt, some state money now going to cities and counties will go to rent subsidies. But it’s uncertain that will be enough. No one knows how many of the homeless will want to move into new housing if it looks like dormitories or barracks. No one knows how many will agree to drug or mental health treatment, problems that together afflict almost half the current homeless. Which suggests all the new money may help a bit, but probably won’t rid the landscape of many current scruffy encampments. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

Cedros Avenue retail/residential development nears completion By Lexy Brodt

SOLANA BEACH — Cedros Avenue has long been the cultural heart of Solana Beach, known for its hip commercial offerings and artistic focus. And a new 26,000-squarefoot development project, called 330 Cedros, seeks to drive that focus home. The two-story industrial-style building will offer a restaurant, retail and office space, and eight luxury units, but also huge, vibrant murals created by several local artists. “I think it fits in really well,” said Adam Robinson, principal with San Diego developer RAF Pacifica Group. The $26 million project is currently undergoing finishing touches, though Robinson anticipates future tenants will be able

to move into the residential units as early as January. Robinson said RAF Pacifica has pinned down tenants for three of the four retails spaces, which will welcome a new location for fitness franchise F45 Training and an interior design group. They are still in the process of finding tenants for the remaining retail and street-level restaurant spaces. The development brings 8,000 square feet of office space to the area, which will be situated behind the commercial offerings, above a parking structure with about 80 parking spots. Robinson said the project’s residential component will not only bring more much-needed housing to the coastal city but offer high-end living spaces in a section of town that currently doesn’t

have any. The six two-bedroom units and two one-bedroom units are “not like your normal apartment project,” said Robinson, adding that the units will look more like condo-spec, high-end Airbnbs. Local developer Sean McLeod designed the project, which was cleared by the city before being sold to RAF Pacifica. The developer took over the construction permitting process and construction itself, which took about 14 months. “We’re getting pretty close,” Robinson said. As far as integrating the project into Cedros and adding a bit more color to the design district, Robinson said he wanted “to do something a little different.” That meant bringing on North

County artist Skye Walker (@skyewalker_art) as an artistic consultant on the project, as well as the creator of one of its murals. Walker selected two other local artists for the project – Tierney Moses (@ tierneymoses) and Mark Warren Jacques (@mwjstudio) – to offer something more stylistically diverse. The murals sprawl across several walls within the project, with Walker bringing art to a 45-foot wall on the side of the restaurant space, Jacques completing a 28foot section and Moses painting two approximately 18-foot and 20-foot sections on the project’s exterior. “All three of our pieces are very different from each other, which is perfect for the space,” said Walker.

Walker said the project is his first in Solana Beach — the artist has worked with Robinson in the past, on a RAF Pacifica project in Cardiff. “I’ve always wanted to do something on Cedros,” he said. “When Adam spoke to me about this, I was really excited because it’s really an art-driven district.” Robinson said that the project was more difficult than RAF Pacifica’s typical development — they often develop office spaces in industrial districts with much more land to work with. As an Encinitas resident, Robinson said having a project in his community that he will now be able to pass regularly and use has been “more fulfilling.” “I think we need to see more of these types of projects,” he said.

Irrigation District committee talks Lake Hodges, more By Alexander Wehrung

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Irrigation District’s Joint Facilities Advisory Committee held a meeting on Nov. 14 at the irrigation district’s office to discuss the current status of the Lake Hodges Dam, the progress of the Joint Facilities Capital Improvement Program and the current status of Joint Facilities operations. Santa Fe Irrigation District General Manager Albert Lau made a verbal presentation on the status of the Lake Hodges Dam. He explained that the water stored in Lake Hodges is jointly owned by the Santa Fe Irrigation District, the San Dieguito Water District and the city of San Diego. The dam itself is owned and administered by the San Diego County Water Authority. Lake Hodges is currently at 40% capacity of its maximum 30,251 acre feet, putting it under 13,000 acre feet. Lau expects the capacity to stay reduced for the

next decade. San Diego is working on a near-term fix to make sure capacity does not continue to decrease. In the case of additions to the reservoir, like rain, water must be either removed or released from the lake to maintain the dam’s integrity, as the dam was built in 1918 and thus, does not conform to current seismic standards; the dam can’t be shored, only rebuilt completely. In the case of a leak or breakage, there is a danger present, as several structures are currently located within the dam’s flood zone. An evaluation of the dam’s structural integrity is expected to be a time-consuming process. Engineering Services Manager Bill Hunter took over for the next presentation, in which he detailed the budget and progress of several projects. Said budget was $7.57 million for projects like the removal of solid matter from the San Dieguito reservoir, making seismic improvements

to two facility structures built in the 1960s, replacing the roof on the Badger Administration Building, replacing valves at the Cielo Pump Station that were corroded by debris from the 2007 Witch Creek fire that landed in Lake Hodges, and repairing the concrete in the Badger Administration Building’s filters (the last of which will take up to three years). Water Treatment Plant Manager Tim Bailey led a presentation on the presence of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAs) — a chemical used as an industrial surfactant — in local water. He explained that PFAs (which were invented in the 1930s and manufactured from the 1940s to the 1990s) tend to concentrate in southern California, and that the EPA issued a health advisory regarding PFAs in quantities of 70 parts per trillion (ppt). However, there are currently no PFAs in Rancho Santa Fe water sources or distribution systems; PFAs

The four deaths have heightened the scrutiny placed on horse racing since a rash of deaths at Santa Anita Park earlier this year. Officials with the California Horse Racing Board and Santa Anita owner The Stronach Group enacted a series of new rules during

a racing year in which 37 horses died at Santa Anita. Animal rights activists with organizations such as Horseracing Wrongs were expected to flock to this week’s meeting of the CHRB, which was held at the Hilton Del Mar on Thursday. In addition to Princess Dorian, seven horses have died while racing or training at Del Mar so far this year.

Finally, Bailey announced that the district’s water treatment plant can now continue to function in the event of a power outage — using emergency power drawn from generators — and still maintain treatment standards with no service interruptions during an outage. The next Join Facilities Advisory Committee is currently scheduled for 9 a.m. Feb. 13, 2020 at the Santa Fe Irrigation District. This meeting’s agenda can be accessed on its website at sfidwater.org.

RANCHO SANTA FE — During Veterans Day weekend, Helen Woodward Animal Center held an adoption event to give the dogs and cats in its care new homes. Veterans who applied for adoption had their fees waived. During adoptions, Director of Operations Jennifer Shorey bustled about, meeting with potential adoptees and managing her animal care technicians (ACTs), who took potential adoptees and animals outside into one of three closedoff recreation areas. These long, rectangular pens with turf ground, toys and large gazebos provided a space for people to interact with animals they were interested in adopting. Some smaller, dedicated meeting rooms were also available for people to interact with animals in. The center’s cats are kept in the Twinkle & Zinger Feline Center. Some of the cats — Wheat, Barley, Pie, Medusa, Dracula, etc. — were paired together in enclosures because they had bonded; visitors were encouraged to adopt these animals in pairs. As for the dogs, they were held in the Kent Hauschulz Canine Center. They were more popular than the cats, with multiple families visiting the much larger

enclosures at a time. Dogs like Winston, Wrangler and Candy barked and pawed at passing humans, whilst others slept. The center staff took pictures with adoptees before families took home their new pets, and their gift shop was open for visitors to purchase leashes, food, toys and more. In 2018, the center had 2,740 adoptions, 2,016 of which were from animals placed in foster homes. The center provides foster homes with the resources to make fosters successful, including toys, food, and newspapers for sanitary purposes. Though staff admits that there was some degree of “foster failure,” it only means that the foster caretaker ended up adopting some of the animals in their care. The center also participates in another program in order to have animals adopted over the holidays. “Home 4 the Holidays” is three-month adoption drive that encourages people to adopt animals, instead of buying them from mills and backyard breeders. The drive consists of a network of at least 4,000 shelters and is credited for saving over 16 million pets. Anyone interested in adopting an animal from the HWAC can find out more at animalcenter.org.

Call me a cook-zophrenic CALENDAR


ere come the holidays, and in my world, they include lots of goodies. There is Thanksgiving and then Hanukkah latkes, Christmas dinner, Christmas cookies and sugarplums dancing in our heads. This time of year, I can no longer deny that I’m a cook-zophrenic. That means part of me relishes the creative, delicious world of food preparation and consumption. The other part of me runs shrieking at the mention of a cookie exchange or the phrase “Can you bring an hors d’oeuvre?” I have never been adept in the kitchen. I can scrape by, but I lack motivation. That “simple” Chinese wok recipe loses its magic after I have chopped my 14th vegetable. I did go all out and make one classic Christmas dinner with goose, ham, Yorkshire pudding, gravy and the works. It was spectacular and during the three full days it took me to clean up, I vowed never again. But like labor pains, I soon forget and get sucked in again. It always hits me when I wander into a gourmet kitchen store. Knowing full well I will never use a garlic press, a deluxe spatula, a strawberry huller or a combination deep fryer and FM radio, I neverthe-

small talk jean gillette less want them. I want the pretty hand-blown glass toothpicks, the matching snail plates and the cookie cutters shaped like tropical fruit. I want the nests of colorful bowls, the pasta keeper and all the refrigerator magnets. The worst happens when I’m watching TV and happen to flip past “Good Eats” with Alton Brown or “The Holiday Baking Championship.” You would think I had actually ever iced a layer cake or successfully handled one of those decorator icing bags. But no. I just find myself wanting to. After a couple of TV cooks make it look so simple, I have to fight the urge to race into the kitchen and begin preparing peanut brittle from scratch. I need to remind myself of the even dozen batches of fudge I mixed, cooked — and tossed out — one Christmas. The odds are further stacked against me. I think the oven is pouting from neglect, and I have to replace the battery in my smoke alarm more often

than most. Nonetheless, I’ve been known to fantasize about busting out a perfect standing rib roast. I am equally vulnerable anytime I pass a Martha Stewart Living or Bon Appétit magazine on the rack. When the publication shows those rich, glossy photos of a beautifully set table groaning with at least five courses, I begin to lose touch with reality. Suddenly it doesn’t matter that each recipe has three parts with 10 ingredients and instructions that cover two pages. Fully cognizant that I probably can’t afford the exotic ingredients, much less find them, I want to flip on the oven, gather up the ingredients and spend a solid 15 or 20 minutes cooking up a storm. Then I snap into consciousness and face the fact that just one of those five dishes needs hours of my attention, and I tend to burn something or bail. All that effort, just to be eaten? Oh no. Were I to invest those great chunks of time and creativity into something, I want it bronzed and put on the mantle. Uh oh. I’m feeling woozy. Hide the cookbooks.

Horse rescue group seeks donations RANCHO SANTA FE — Laughing Pony Rescue (LPR), dedicated to rescuing neglected, abused and at-risk horses, donkeys and farm animals and providing the local community with equine education and equine therapy, is calling on the local community to help support their work in 2020. Since 2010, LPR has rescued more than 1,000 horses, donkeys and farm animals from abuse, neglect and slaughter with the help of our donors and network of volunteers. A registered California 501(c)(3) nonprofit, LPR relies solely on fundraising, donations and grants to fund the more than $100,000 needed for yearly

expenses to feed, rehabilitate, and care for the onsite equines and support an off-site rescue effort of slaughter-bound horses and donkeys throughout the Western United States. In 2019, LPR facilitated the fundraising, rescue and placement of more than 150 slaughter-bound horses and donkeys to homes. “It is impossible to visit LPR and not be immediately impacted by the horses and donkeys,” said LPR volunteer Sue Izzo. “You look into their eyes and fall in love, wondering how anyone could have mistreated these majestic creatures.” To keep up with the rising costs of hay, feed, medicines and veterinary

and farrier services, LPR is asking for donations. Of the donations received by LPR, 98% go directly to the care and feeding of our animals and donations are tax deductible. LPR has achieved the Platinum Donor Level Certification. To make a tax-deductible donation to LPR, visit laughingponyrescue.org/ donate or send a check or money order made out to Laughing Pony Rescue, Inc. P.O. Box 32, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067.

RANCHO SANTA FE – The Rancho Santa Fe firefighters are once again hosting their annual Toys for Tots holiday toy drive in hopes of making the season a bit brighter for local children. “We look forward to this event every year,” said Engineer Kyle Carranza, who is coordinating this year’s toy drive. “It’s a simple gesture, but it can make such a difference for these kids. We hope that partnering with Toys for Tots will allow us to reach even more children this Christmas.” Donations of new, unwrapped toys are being accepted now through Monday, Dec. 9, at five Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District fire stations: • Fire Station No. 1: (.294) while playing in all 15 games. Daoust also tallied 17 shots, 10 shots on goal and one assist for the season. Daoust's five goals for the season were the most by a Cougar since 2014 and the most by a CSUSM player in the NCAA era (2015-present) She becomes the ninth Cougar in program history to earn All-CCAA honors.

Thanksgiving Day brings to mind the daily blessings in our lives that we sometimes take for granted: a home that provides us with comfort, clothes to keep us warm, food to eat and share, the freedoms secured by our military men and women here and abroad, and our ability to help our neighbors and community. Most of all we are thankful for our family and friends ~ those treasured people who make our lives extra special in so many ways. Today we acknowledge all the blessings in our life, big and small, and we may forever be grateful for them all.

Mother-daughter duo cleans up in USTA national competition


ational tennis titles weren’t the only thing Brenda Humphrey and Shelly Stillman-Scott were collecting this summer. “There are a lot of mothers and daughters that don’t get to create neat memories like this,’’ Shelly said. Brenda has lived in Encinitas since 1946, back when her parents farmed the land. Shelly, now of Virginia, has North County roots and a branch of those include tennis.

division. Brenda, 75, and Shelly, 58, won three of the four titles, a sweep of doubles success that was stunning and spectacular. “I have a good partner,’’ Shelly said. “That is my secret.” Word quickly got out that getting Brenda and Shelly in the draw was as comforting as a double fault. They rolled to victories on indoor surfaces in Washington, on grass in Massachusetts and atop clay in Florida. It was their fantastic feat on clay that stood out, according to Shelly. “To earn a gold ball (championship) on clay was significant,” she said. “We hadn’t done very well on that surface so to win that

was awesome.” Shelly, a semi-retired teaching pro, does most the heavy lifting. That’s true of any mother-daughter tandem, with the younger player trying to score points by directing balls to the elder partner on the opposite side. But when rockets off rackets were sent Brenda’s way, they were promptly returned to their sender with gusto and depth. Twice in events Brenda had to counter offerings from former University of California, Santa Barbara, players and they discovered it was no day at the beach tracking her returns. “Some of these women have huge serves and they hit them like men,” Shelly said. “But she was able to get the ball back and hit some winners.” Brenda could flex her muscles, but why show off. She displayed enough grit this summer that it had her daughter tipping her tennis cap in her mother’s direction. “She used to be a serveand-volley player, but she doesn’t come in as much behind her serve at 75,” Shelly said. “But she has gotten really fit and that has helped her quickness. I was really impressed the way in which she played this summer. It was the best we had ever played together.” That’s saying something as they’ve been competing in USTA events since 1984. There were breaks in between tournaments, with them residing and working on opposite ends of the country. The awards and backslaps are grand, but Shelly accumulated more than the trophies. The opportunity to hang out with a woman who is caring and kind made the time memorable. Brenda is as sweet as a fluid down-the-line backhand, until it comes to someone keeping score. “She’s not a jerk, she’s actually very nice,” Shelly said. “But she loves tennis and is more passionate about it than anything else. She is very competitive and very tough.” And she’s very proud of her daughter who earned the first female tennis scholarship at the University of Virginia. There’s nothing cavalier about that, and that also goes for facing the duo with an Encinitas pedigree. “She’s a really good doubles player,” Brenda said. “But I think I held up my end of it, too.” They ended up hoisting three USTA national trophies and what’s not to love about that?

Pairing the perfect wines with Thanksgiving dinner classics taste of wine frank mangio


ith many of us having finalized our Thanksgiving Day menus and guest lists, it is time to start thinking about the wine pairings for our bountiful meal. Tech Director Rico and I had a great discussion and came up with the following short list of varietals to complement our golden-brown birds. Rieslings, Viogniers and Chardonnays were our favorite white varietals. Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett Blue Slate with citrus notes and subtle acidity is a light but flavorful wine for your

donnay benefits from malolactic fermentation and nine months aging in American and French oak for a creamy texture. The nose and palate are peach, mango and vanilla spice with a buttery finish, and it is perfect for your dinner! Shifting over to red varietals, we immediately thought of Pinot Noir and wanted to suggest a Pinot that was readily accessible at most grocery stores and easily affordable. Our selection is Meiomi Pinot Noir. Meiomi has cherry and plum tasting notes with medium tannins and a smooth finish. At around $17 per bottle, this is a great value wine. Perhaps some are not cooking and are visiting family or friends and wondering what a good bottle of wine may be for a host gift. May we suggest surprising your host with a bottle of award winning DAOU Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (Robert Parker 94 points). Happy Thanksgiving and Bon Appetit!

Breweries benefiting food bank with holiday drive venture” sort of event, with options from a 5 km runwalk, to a 25-mile cycling loop around South Bay, to 88- and 100-mile routes for experienced long-distance cyclists.

craft beer in North County Bill Vanderburgh


rian Beagle, the driving force behind popular San Diego beer podcast, The Indie Beer Show, is a general contractor for a living but a craft beer lover for life. And, just like the local brewing industry, Beagle is interested not only in having a good time, but also in doing good. That’s why, for the last six years, Beagle has supported Societe Brewing’s holiday food drive for the San Diego Food Bank. In the first five years of the drive it has collected 56,237 pounds of food. Last year’s record collection was 13,112 pounds with Beagle’s efforts bringing in 7,852 pounds of the total. The partnership has been so successful that this year Societe and Beagle officially joined forces and renamed their joint food drive the #SDBeer Holiday Food Drive, after a popular social media tag for local craft breweries. This year’s goal is 15,000 pounds of food donated. Beagle says, “My charitable work has always been based in feeding people. I grew up poor, often fed by programs like Share. We were a Cub/Boy Scout family so volunteering to help others became second nature to me from childhood. Currently, I have family members that are fed by Mama’s Kitchen daily, so I support them with another food drive in the summer, too.” The #SDBeer Holiday Food Drive launched on November 13, 2019, with a game-show-style event at My Yard Live in San Marcos. Nine members of the San Diego craft beer scene (including this writer) answered trivia questions about beer and brewing, with the winner of each of three heats playing off in the final round. Proving once again that home field advantage is a real thing, My Yard Live’s own head brewer, Benjamin “Shag-

gy” Blaney, was the overall winner. You can hear all the fun on this week’s episode of The Indie Beer Show. Local company Quiz Show Mania provided the game show podiums, buzzers, sound, and scoreboards. Their setup made the event feel a lot more special than a traditional bar trivia night. I can see why they are popular for company events, team building, parties and celebrations of all sorts. They can customize their game for any kind of event, including for a wide range of ages. Well over 100 pounds of food was donated at the My Yard Live launch event, so the drive is off to a roaring start. With 36 local breweries and bars around the county participating in 2019, it is now easier than ever to support the #SDBeer Holiday Food Drive, which runs until Dec. 31. The North County drop-off locations are:

canned beans, cereal, rice, nuts and seeds, peanut butter, canned soup, canned and dried fruit, canned vegetables, powdered milk and infant formula. In fact, Beagle points out, it is even more effective to donate cash: Every dollar donated enables the food bank to buy five healthy meals. You can make a tax-deductible cash donation to the food drive through a link on https://Indie.beer.

*** Great results for San Diego breweries at two major competitions Results were announced on Oct. 13 for the sixth European Beer Star Competition. Two thousand four hundred and eightythree beers were entered from a total of 47 different countries. Unsurprisingly given the venue and the focus on European beer styles, Germany dominated, with almost half the entries and 78 medals. Italy won 20, Belgium 14, and the USA brought home 26. One of the U.S. medals was a silver in

the Fruit and Sour category for Eppig Brewing’s Glitz & Glam, a Berliner Weisse with cherries and raspberries, beating Germany at their own game. San Marcos’s The Lost Abbey won a gold in the Sour Beer with Fruit category and runner-up for best-inshow for a beer called Peach Afternoon at North America’s largest and most prestigious barrel-aged beer festival and competition, The Festival of Wood- and Barrel-Aged Beer (FoBAB), held in Chicago, Nov. 8 and Nov. 9. Lost Abbey and its subbrand Port Brewing have won at FoBAB before, including best-in-show in 2010 and 2014 and runner-up for best-in-show in 2012, plus additional medals in 2015 (silver), 2013 (bronze), 2012 (bronze), 2011 (gold), 2010 (silver), and 2009 (bronze).

Scottsdale’s diverse desert landscape hit the road e’louise ondash green space that shelters nearly 50,000 plants and trees native to various deserts. We arrive mid-afternoon; it’s in the 80s, but (honestly) it’s a dry heat. The air under the ample shade trees is comfortably cool. At each turn, I experience plant-and-rock envy. Every landscaped space appears worthy of a magazine

cover, and the hardscape is an artful blending of stone, glass and cement. Gardeners of all skill levels will find inspiration here and at the very least, enjoy seeing species of cactuses and succulents that most of us will never attempt to propagate. And if you visit before May 10, you’ll not only find the usual resident critters like ground squirrels, woodpeckers, roadrunners and lizards (perhaps even an iguana), but the 1,000 largerthan-life animals that make up the “Wild Rising” exhibit. Visitors will see meerkats, penguins, snails, bunnies, birds, bears, fish, frogs and more made of recycled

plastic in eye-popping colors that are situated throughout the garden. (Don’t forget to look up.) The “invasion,” created by an Italian artists’ collective, is meant to provoke discussion about local and global sustainability, conservation and the importance of recycling. The exhibit “is controversial,” a docent tells us with a shrug. “The kids love it, but well, judge for yourself.” Visi www.experiencescottsdale.com. Want to share your travels?

een here, done this, and I’m so glad to be doing it again. We are standing near the 2,400-foot summit of the Gateway Trail, a nearly 5-mile loop in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve (w w w.mcdowellsonoran. org) in Scottsdale, Arizona. Surrounding us: an expanse of about 35,000 acres of the world’s most verdant desert. Who could guess that, only a few miles away, exists a metropolis of almost 5 million residents. Count among them a goodly number of former California residents. Verdant and desert are two words rarely used in tandem, but this portion of the Sonoran Desert, captured by the boundaries of the preserve, really is green, even though it’s November and previous months have been dry. The paloverde trees, majestic saguaros, fuzzy chollas, squatty barrels, leafy brittle bush and many other types of vegetation combine to create a soft green cast to this diverse desert landscape. “We have the saguaros that grow (in the Sonoran Desert) and nowhere else,” explains Steve Sproviero, my guide for this morning hike. The retired businessman and New Jersey transplant loves everything about Arizona, especially this preserve. As a guide for the local REI Co-op Adventure Center (destinations.rei. com), Sproviero often leads hikes for out-of-towners. “The plants here all have different times that they begin to flower. That allows a large bee population to thrive. We are considered to have ... more plant diversity (than any other desert) due to just the right combination of water, weather and elevation.” Sproviero has lived in Scottsdale for about a decade, is fully immersed and is an enthusiastic cheerleader for the area. “This part of the country, and more specifically Scottsdale, has such a great range of things to do — hiking, biking, running, water sports, large lakes, easy access to some of the largest parks and preserves in the country. Don’t forget the number of world class golf courses, resorts and great eats.” Eventually, he says, this preserve will top out at about 40,000 acres. Some of the acreage was purchased during the most recent recession when developers were forced to sell large tracts of land at prices advantageous to the city and the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy. “Scottsdale has more open space for recreational activities than any other city in the country,” Sproviero says. “Locals, visitors, businesspeople, all can enjoy the great outdoors within minutes of our great metro area.” Across town to the southwest, near the red rocks of Papago Buttes, another expanse of lush-buttamer desert awaits visitors. It is the Desert Botanical Gardens (dbg.org), 140 acres of carefully orchestrated

The student chaplaincy at Radboud University initially offered the experience in 2009 as a temporary experiment, but due to increased demand, it’s back this year, according to Vice. Students are not allowed to bring their phones or a book with them into the grave. “You can see it as a special place of meditation: below you the earth, above you the sky,” the university website explains. “You will then automatically notice what is going through your mind.” If you’re skittish about entering the grave, you can sit on the bench


NEXT GENERATION INTERNET CONNECTION Just as important as the smart home technology you select is the internet service you choose. To get the optimal experience from your smart home devices and technology, make sure you have the right internet speeds for your household. Cox Gigablast offers next generation gigabit internet speed (1 gigabit is equivalent to 1,000 megabits per second) and can connect dozens of smart devices in the home simultaneously.

SMART LOCKS Roughly 30% of burglars enter a home through an unlocked door, and about 34% enter through the front door. And the hours between noon and 4 p.m. are prime time for burglars. Don’t make it easy for them. Make sure you locked the door when you left the house using a smart lock that will allow you to remotely control the doors to your home from your smartphone. And they can do so much more. Smart lock features through Cox Homelife include voice commands, customized chimes to recognize certain visitors or family members, activity logs, and integration with other smart devices in the home. You can also set up special codes for house sitters, dog walkers, and even deliveries to keep those porch pirates away.

When it comes to smart home technology, Cox offers a variety of internet speeds to fit the individual household need. Go to www.cox. com to find the internet speed and home automation services that are right for your home.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) While it seems that chaos is taking over, you get everything back to normal, even if it means being more than a little assertive with some people. Expect to hear more job-related news soon. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Expect to be able to move ahead with your workplace plans now that you have a good idea of what you might have to face. You also can anticipate a welcome change on the home front. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A quieter period settles in, giving you a chance to catch your breath, as well as allowing for more time to handle some important family matters. The arts dominate this weekend. Enjoy them. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The frustrations of last week have pretty much played themselves out. You should find things going more smoothly, especially with those all-important personal matters. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Once again, you find a creative way to resolve a pesky problem in short order. However, a matter involving a possible breach of confidence might need a bit more time to check out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Reuniting with an old friend could lead to the sharing of some great new experiences. But be careful you don’t find yourself once again being super-critical or overly judgmental.


LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You should be seeing some positive results following your move toward repairing that unraveling relationship. There might be some setbacks, but staying with it ultimately pays off. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Encouraging a friendlier environment in the home could go a long way to help dissipate anger and resolve problems, especially those affecting children. It won’t be easy, but you can do it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A recent act of kindness is beginning to show some unexpected (but very welcome) results. On another note, expect to hear more about a possible move to another locale. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The good news is that the sure-footed Goat can rely on his or her skill to get around obstacles in the workplace. The not-so-good news is that new impediments could turn up later. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A change of pace is welcome but also confusing. Before you make decisions one way or another, be sure you know precisely what it is you’re being asked to do. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Don’t fret if you don’t get the gratitude you think you’re owed for doing a nice thing for someone. There might be a good reason for that. In any event, what’s important is that you did it.

tomers poems via snail mail. “We’re living in such a technological world, things are kind of intangible,” he said. “To be able to hold something that was created right then and there on a machine that’s even older than I am, I think is special for people. And it’s always fun to get mail that’s not a bill or something. I really think that letter-writing is an art-form in its own.” His poems only rhyme loosely and do not conform to any particular style; he says that his work is more free-flowing. He describes his poetry as being akin to affirmations or mantras, meant to lift the spirits of whomever buys from him. “When I’m really in the zone, writing, I’m kind of trying to tap into a state of mind that connects me to a higher creativity,” he explained. Brownlowe grew up moving around the country on account of his father being in the military, and he attributes this to being the cause of the semi-nomadic lifestyle that has led him to stay in Oregon for 12 years, make a stint in New York City, settle in his current home of San Diego, and enjoy driving through long stretches of nothing. “I like writing in San Diego especially, because it’s just so diverse. I set up at the farmer’s markets typically, so I get people of all ages, people from all places, you know, pretty diverse population.” He’s found his inspiration in the Big Apple, Utah, Tucson, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree and New Orleans— there are more typewriter poets like himself in the Big

Easy. Brownlowe also attributed his current artistic journey to a long-distance online relationship he had, when he sent poems to his partner that he wrote on his typewriter. It is the experience, not the content of the poems themselves, he said, that give his work meaning. To that end, he keeps a journal of the things he’s seen, the places he’s been. Brownlowe writes his free-form poems on one of the three vintage typewriters he owns; he took his other two with him to this event, just in case, though he kept them tucked safely away in his van. “I often wonder who was using the machine before me, what its purpose was. For some reason, writing on the typewriter really kind of gets my brain flowing a little bit more.” On the off chance he needs to repair a typewrit-

er, he takes them to the Ace Typewriter and Equipment Co. up in Portland. Since the typewriters are risky to ship, he’ll leave the typewriter up there for months at a time, until he can make a trip to retrieve it. The last this reporter saw of him, Brownlowe was invited to meet a woman’s in-laws, who were celebrating their 56th anniversary, in order to write a poem for them. He traveled over to the Inn’s restaurant in the next room to speak to them, sharing laughter. Then he came back to his table and started churning out the poem, the typewriter clacking rhythmically. The next “Typewriter Troubadour” event will be held on Nov. 24 at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, and will continue to be held on Sundays until Dec. 8. Brownlowe’s website is typewritertroubadour.com.
