Covenant residents approve RSF Connect

Trails map gets an update

By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — While the Rancho Santa Fe Association held its monthly board meeting on Oct. 5, election inspector Bruce Bishop and his staff were counting ballots from a community-wide vote. Bishop reported that from a total of 959 ballots, with 19 invalid, 799 voted “yes” to approve RSF Connect. The fiber-optic network will be built and maintained by the RSF Association and provide highspeed 1-Gigabit-per-second internet service to every house in the Covenant. Now with community approval, the next step is to submit plans to the county for a 90-day permitting process in November. The estimated cost to build the network is $13 million to $14 million with an underground fiber installation. The RSF Association mailed off ballots on Sept. 11 which were due back at the Association by Oct. 4. Every household received

RANCHO SANTA FE — During a Sept. 7 Rancho Santa Fe Association board meeting, the directors approved an updated trails map which required a vote. Representing the Trails and Recreation Committee at the meeting were chair Daniel Bunn and committee member Rochelle Putman. Bunn explained that the map was updated about 10 years ago. However, five years ago, the committee agreed it was a good time to tackle the project once again. Updating the trails map was no small feat. It required an enormous amount of time and Putman played a role in its completion along with other committee members. “The 60-mile trail system has been pieced together over an almost 70-year span as individual property owners granted hundreds of easements to enable the trail system to be built,” she said. “Countless hardworking committee members have worked with homeowners to create new trails and firm up easements where there were missing links.” In essence, the Rancho Santa Fe trail system consists of 60 miles of trails, and it is compiled with different types of easements. Putman explained that on the map, next to each of the 300 easements that were on file, committee members would have to go through each document and diagram to make certain it was accurate.

one vote, including condominium owners. The Association encouraged Covenant residents to vote since this was a community investment. The goal of RSF Connect is to offer advanced and reliable internet service for the next 50 years. Henkels & McCoy designed RSF Connect, and San Diego County has already approved the project concept. According to Association Manager Bob Hall, Henkels & McCoy is finalizing the construction design with a completion date set for the end of October 2017. Funding for the project is twofold. A total of $8 million will be withdrawn from the Association’s Fiber Optic Fund, and the balance will be paid off in a 10-year bank loan. Hall said the hope is to receive a permit from the county in 2018 with the RSF Connect project starting the first quarter of 2018. Project completion will take 18 to 24 months.

RANCHO SANTA FE — Negotiations are underway with the Rancho Santa Fe School District and the Rancho Santa Fe Faculty Association. At the Oct. 5 school board meeting, board President Todd Frank provided a statement regarding the “limited re-openers” aimed at the 2017-2018 school year. To date, representatives of the district and the Association have met on four separate occasions. Teachers at R. Roger Rowe were among the many attendees at the monthly meeting including teacher

Amanda Valentine, who also serves as the president of the RSF Faculty Association. Frank explained how this “collective bargaining agreement” encompassed the time period of 2016 to June 30, 2019. He then focused what the Faculty Association was proposing. “The Faculty Association’s most recent proposal includes a 5 percent on schedule increase to the salary schedule and an increase of $125 per month to the district’s health benefit contributions for a toTURN TO SCHOOL BOARD ON 20

Beach & Country Guild readies for annual luncheon By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The 48th annual Dia del Sol luncheon, hosted by the Rancho Santa Fe nonprofit Beach & Country Guild, will entertain its guests with a “Moulin Rouge” theme at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar. The Oct. 18 event promises an afternoon of enjoyment while supporting the United Cerebral Palsy of San Diego County. Mistress of ceremonies again this year is award-winning ABC 10News anchor Kimberly Hunt. According to the Beach & Country Guild President Dean-

na Murphy, this annual event has evolved over the decades. “It started out as basically a little ladies lunch in a private home in Rancho Santa Fe with games of tennis and bridge,” she said. “It has grown and changed so much over its 48-year history. “As our attendance grew and tastes changed, and also recognizing how much so many tremendous and worthy organizations in San Diego compete for charitable dollars, we have continued to be adaptable to ensure our guests have a unique and enjoyable experience at Dia del Sol.”

While the stunning venues have changed over the years, what has remained the same is keeping the United Cerebral Palsy of San Diego as the event’s sole beneficiary. “All proceeds raised are given to UCPSD, ensuring that every dollar generated through our efforts goes directly to our neighbors in our community, helping UCPSD to continue their mission to help people of all abilities live a life without limits,” Murphy said. The afternoon affair will inTURN TO DIA DEL SOL ON 11

Key amendment reduced potential of moved-up vote California Focus By Thomas D. Elias

Lawsuits benefit water ratepayers By Mark Muir

The California Supreme Court announced on Sept. 27 that it has not accepted our petition to review a Court of Appeal decision that allows the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California to include its State Water Project costs in the rates it charges to transport the Water Authority’s independent Colorado River supplies through MWD’s aqueduct. While we hoped the court would strike down all of MWD’s monopolistic rates, our lawsuits have produced noteworthy victories for San Diego County residents — rights to significantly more MWD water, a determination that MWD breached its contract with the Water Authority, and a ruling that MWD illegally collected tens of millions of dollars in overcharges from our region through the imposition of its so-called “water stewardship” rate.

MWD must repay the Water Authority approximately $51 million in illegal water stewardship charges from 2011-2014. And, the decision prevents MWD from imposing more than $20 million in illegal charges annually going forward. Through 2047, those unlawful charges would have amounted to approximately $1.1 billion. As part of the litigation, the Water Authority also secured the single-greatest water rights victory in San Diego County history. Under the Metropolitan Water District Act, each of its member agencies has a statutory right to a certain percentage of MWD’s available water supplies. The trial court and Court of Appeal both ruled that MWD illegally under-calculated the Water Authority’s water right since 2003. Properly calculated, the Water Authority’s water right at MWD will be about 100,000 acre-feet per year greater than MWD had calculated. To put that in perspective, that’s about twice the annual production of the $1 billion Claude “Bud” Lewis Carlsbad Desalination Plant.

The state Supreme Court sets a high bar for the cases it accepts for review, agreeing to review only 5 percent of all cases presented to it. We are thankful to our staff and legal team for the extraordinary effort required to advance our cause — and we are thankful for the legions of business associations, civic groups, elected officials and other stakeholders for continued support of the Water Authority’s efforts to protect the interests of San Diego County ratepayers. The Water Authority has two additional cases challenging MWD’s rates from 2015-2018 that have been stayed in Superior Court while the appellate proceedings were ongoing and are now expected to move forward again. We expect to recover approximately $39 million in illegal MWD charges in those two cases. To learn more about this issue, go to www.sdc w a.org / mwd rate - c ha llenge.

If any of this year’s legislative bills was a no-brainer for easy passage and then approval by Gov. Jerry Brown, it was Senate Bill 568, sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Ricardo Lara of East Los Angeles. No one at all, in Sacramento or anywhere else, argues with the premise behind this new law: California has long had far less influence in choosing America’s presidents than it should, principally because it has had virtually no role in vetting nominees of the two major parties. More than 12 percent of the American people have been essentially disenfranchised for almost half a century, while small states like South Carolina and Wyoming gained influence. The tail has wagged the dog for decades, most recently giving the nation and world President Donald Trump. Because the last couple of presidential primary elections here were held in June, the outcome in both parties was determined long before either party’s campaign reached this Golden State. Candidates came here only to tap wealthy donors for campaign funds. Billionaire Californians might have had some influence, but not ordinary voters. This has mostly been the California situation since 1972, when South Dakota Sen. George McGovern beat Minnesota’s Sen. Hubert Humphrey in their Democratic contest to run against then-President Richard Nixon, a former Republican senator from Whittier. No subsequent California primary in either party provided anyone with a decisive, or even significant edge. The closest to it came in 2008, when Hillary Clinton beat Barack Obama in the Democratic primary here in mid-March, the victory keeping her hopes alive two more months when they’d have died much sooner had she lost here. That wasn’t enough to satisfy anyone, so legislators and Brown threw up their hands and opted to return to the state’s traditional early June date. But plenty of Californians remained unsatisfied, and the notion of an early primary was revived this year, in the form of Lara’s bill. As first written, this measure held great promise. It moved the entire California primary up into March, contests for state offices coinciding with the presidential vote. And it gave future gover-

Letters to the Editor On KAABOO, ‘minimal’ missed the mark As a resident of a neighborhood impacted by the tens of thousands who attended KAABOO, I was surprised by your headline and story about minimal impacts in the Sept. 29 edition. Did you know that attendees flooded neighborhood streets and illegally parked all over those private streets to avoid paying $30 parking rates at the fairgrounds? They left their trash, too, as they loudly returned to their cars after 10 p.m. I have lived along San Andres for almost 17 years. Never, ever, in all that time did fairgoers or race track visitors invade my private neighborhood — Brisas Del Mar — and park all along our streets. I felt very unsafe and frankly was angered by

nors the ability to move the vote up even farther if other states tried to steal California’s thunder by moving their own votes ahead of California. Earlier efforts to gain influence with mid-March votes in the 1990s and early 2000s were stymied when other states either moved their primaries ahead of California or shifted to the same date, which became a widespread Super Tuesday. To prevent that, Lara wrote that new provision into his bill: If other states moved up, the California vote could be switched to a date as early as two weeks after New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary, whose status is written into the rules of both major parties. That, he thought, could discourage other states from once again stealing California’s influence. But lawmakers amended this provision out when county voting registrars said they need certainty years in advance, that a shift even six months prior would make things too difficult for them. So California remains open to the same kind of frustrating one-upsmanship as in previous efforts to move the primary up. The provision never should have been removed. The good news is that it can come back in next year’s legislative session, when voters will be more politically conscious than this year because of the upcoming mid-term elections. Yes, the new March 3 date for the 2020 primary is unquestionably an improvement over early June. Even if lots of states also move their votes up, candidates won’t be able to ignore California as they’ve done so many other times. But March 3 may not be good enough; an even earlier date might be advisable if the next governor wants Californians — and especially himself or herself — to have a major voice. So here’s to Gov. Brown for signing Lara’s measure, which virtually guarantees this state will at least have some voice next time around. But let’s increase the volume of that voice by giving the next governor and the one after that, and so on, a chance to amplify California’s well-deserved voice. Considering the many areas in which California leads America, why not politics, too?


their flagrant violation of my privacy all because the owners of KAABOO sought to make more money from parking. We now have to now hire a security guard — very costly — to keep people away. What does that say about KAABOO touting it wants to be a good neighbor? If they want to respect the privacy and security of their neighbors, they need to get the word out to all concert goers that it is illegal to park on private streets and they will be cited and towed. Maybe they should also foot the bill for security guards to keep their concert goers away from our neighborhood streets. Francie Murphy Del Mar

‘Addicted to Americana’ celebrates mid-century memorabilia

whimsy in a single book, it has the power to sweep you away,” Phoenix said during a phone interview from his Los Angeles home. “I’m a curator — an editor — capturing images and stories and sharing them.” Phoenix likes to say that he was born on a Southern California used-car lot because he spent endless hours there with his father who owned it. “Sparkling spinner wheel covers were the first things that caught my infant eyes,” he writes. And “… the bigger the tail fins, the more I liked the car. This was the genesis of my lifelong obsession with Americana.” Phoenix’ first car was a 1959 Plymouth Belvedere convertible with rocket-ship fins; his best vintage-car find was a 1959 pink Dodge Coronet Convertible, which he owned in 1986. Fast-forward to 2017. “I’ve owned hundreds of vintage cars in my lifetime,” he said. “Today I own a classic ‘61 Pontiac Bonneville, very green inside and out.” Phoenix’ fixation on mid-century memorabilia pulled him into the world of Kodachrome slides. He travels the country presenting retro-themed slide shows (Christmas; Disneyland; family vacations; pop culture) that those of certain age remember seeing via slide carousels, projectors and pop-up screens and bed sheets.

If you want to see Peter Frampton, it might be wise to see him at his Oct. 13 show as part of San Diego’s Walden Family Services Wine D’Vine gala. If plans hold, he won’t be back on tour in the states for a while. “I’m thinking probably at the end of the year doing some writing and recording, or writing I do every day, but recording,” Frampton said in a recent phone interview. “And then next year (I’ll) go out of the country (to tour) hopefully and maybe take it a little easier next year in this country at least and do some other things … I’m probably going to take the next year off touring America.” Fans have seen a good deal of Frampton over the past couple of years, but in a different setting than his usual full-band plugged in format. Instead, aside for on his recent summer run with Steve Miller, most of his shows have been stripped down acoustic presentations with his long-time songwriting partner Gordon Kennedy.

Peter Frampton Courtesy photo The idea of doing a full acoustic show was initially daunting for Frampton. “I’ve always done, when we have the time, I’ll do an acoustic spot, two or three numbers, but never the whole evening,” Frampton said. “This was scary, the thought of carrying the whole evening with acoustic.” But Frampton said he quickly found his comfort

zone and saw audiences responding. “After the first few minutes out there on the very first tour we did two years ago now, I just felt so at home,” he said. “And it was a different feel in the audience because it was more of a ‘Storytellers’ meets ‘Unplugged,’ as opposed to a regular rock show with the band. So lots of stories, life stories and life is funny. It’s sad and funny and everything else in between. You just have to tell it like it is, and everybody can seem to relate to it. “It’s 180 degrees different from the band and I enjoy it so much,” Frampton said. In fact, the shows were so rewarding that Frampton decided to do an all-acoustic album, “Acoustic Classics,” creating new stripped down versions of some of his most famous songs (including “Show Me The Way,” “I’m In You” and “Do You Feel Like We Do” — alas the latter without the talkbox guitar solo). Frampton said it took some work to find his stride in recording the

songs. “When I first went into the studio and did a couple, I thought this will be a piece of cake,” he said. “But I went into the control room and listened and realized it wasn’t what I wanted at all. This was 40 years on also, and it sounded like me without the band — and I missed the band. So I wasn’t doing it in the correct way. So it wasn’t pleasing to me at all. “That’s when I went home and realized I had to reverse engineer my own songs and do them the way that I hoped I remembered how they sounded when I did first write them,” he said. “Once I came across my M.O. for this, everything started to fall into place.” The songs on “Acoustic Classics” date back to the early 1970s when Frampton went solo after achieving an early measure of fame with Humble Pie, gradually building a following with four solo albums. Then came the 1976 double album, “Frampton Comes Alive!” Songs like “Show Me The Way,” “Baby, I Love

Your Way” and “Do You Feel Like We Do” became radio favorites, and sales of “Frampton Comes Alive!” soared, reaching some 18 million copies, while Frampton’s boyish good looks helped make him a bona fide pop star. But pressured to capitalize on his success, Frampton rushed his next studio album, “I’m In You,” and the uneven effort was viewed as a disappointment, and he faded from the spotlight in the 1980s. But a turnaround came with Frampton’s 2006 instrumental album, “Fingerprints,” which won a Grammy. Material from throughout Frampton’s career figures to be part of his show for the Wine D’Vine event. Then it’s time for him to figure out his next move. One distinct possibility is some soundtrack work. San Diego’s Walden Family Services Wine D’Vine gala will take place Oct. 13 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine. For more information, visit waldenfamily.org /winedvine-2017.

Local teen wins $36K for ‘repair the world’ efforts By Bianca Kaplanek

CARMEL VALLEY — A passion for filmmaking, surfing and helping those less fortunate earned a recent Canyon Crest Academy graduate the 2017 Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Award, given annually to Jewish youth leaders who have demonstrated except iona l leadership, community service and action. C a r m - Nathaniel el Valley Goodman r e s i d e n t Courtesy photo Nat ha n ie l Goodman, one of 15 students chosen nationwide, received $36,000 for Filmmaking for Good, which he created to help nonprofit organizations share their message through promotional videos. He said his initiative has “one very simple goal — to promote as many nonprofit organizations and youth groups as possible to raise awareness and funds, from which more people can be served and inspired to serve.” “It all started in high school when I saw there was a disparity between organizations doing good work effectively and those doing it ineffectively,” Goodman said. “I noticed that the missing piece of

the puzzle was media outreach, so I thought of no better way to bridge the resource gap than to bring my skills to struggling nonprofits.” Perhaps his greatest success to date is raising $100,000 in less than 24 hours for ReSurf, which helps underprivileged children worldwide through surfing by equipping community leaders with the necessary tools to reach and inspire their youth. Goodman said he connected with ReSurf the summer before his sophomore year of high school. “Rabbi Zevi New, a youth director, brought me along to film them collecting boards for donation drives,” he said. “Before the first shoot date, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.” Goodman went along, mostly because of the surfing aspect. After his first experience he said he was hooked and wanted to be more than the filmmaker. “I wanted to be an integral part of ReSurf’s development and growth,” he said. “The idea that I could merge all my interests and benefit others was perfect.” Since then he’s started a ReSurf Club at Canyon Crest and helped refurbish surfboards, organize surfboard-painting projects, teach kids “how to


The La Jolla Symphony & Chorus launches its 2017-2018 season with a “Magical Mystery Tour” Gala at 6 p.m. Oct. 14 at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, 15150 San Dieguito Road, Rancho Santa Fe. The gala also celebrates the LJS&C’s 50th anniversary as an affiliate of UC San Diego, and takes its theme from The Beatles’ groundbreaking album that debuted 50 years ago this fall. Gala co-chairs are Brian and Sherri Schottlaender, Betty McManus and Cecil Lytle. Gala tickets are $200 each at (858) 534-4637 or visit lajollasymphony.com.

catch waves and be safe in the water” and create programs in South Africa, Mexico and Hawaii. Goodman said during the latter trip — to the low-income side of West Oahu where many at-risk youth live — a local explained his experience with ReSurf. “He said, ‘It’s like turtles when they’re born and run for the water. Kids are getting picked up by the birds … and end up being homeless. ReSurf makes West Oahu a better place.’” That story is in Goodman’s video that raised $100,000 for the organization. Additionally, he said, “We were lucky to have partnered with some generous donors who quadrupled every dollar donated to the organization and ...

we made it our objective to disseminate ReSurf's message on different social media platforms with my videos.” Goodman’s interest in filmmaking began when he was young, watching his father, an eye surgeon, create short videos of family events. He said his parents encouraged him “to find a mode of expression that’s dear to me so I could march to my own drum.” “I picked up my first camera when I was 5, unwitting of the potential that lay within the little black box,” he said. About five years later he was in a car accident that nearly killed his parents. Goodman said it confirmed his desire to pursue storytelling because it helped him “capture

emotions and maintain memories, many of which make up the life that was almost swept away before my eyes.” “I’ve found filmmaking to be instrumental to my development,” he added. “It’s able to convey certain emotions and realities in ways literature, photography and music cannot.” Goodman said he was inspired by the dedication and service of other Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Award winners but never thought he had a chance of being selected. During his senior year in high school, his parents encouraged him to apply. “It is such an honor to be selected and I’m so grateful to the Helen Diller Family Foundation for giving me this opportunity to further my vision for

helping others,” he said. “It’s also a validation of the importance and potential of our work ... and it allows me to carry on the Jewish tradition of ‘tikkun olam.’” The phrase means “repair the world.” Goodman said he will use the money to help pay his tuition at Brown University, where he is a freshman planning to study behavioral decision sciences. He is considering medical school, working in technology or nonprofit spheres abroad or domestically to find creative solutions to complex world problems and perhaps “pursue an MBA and work in finance for a little while in the midst of everything else.” Visit http://www.dillerteenawards.org/ for information about the award.

Gala chairs reflect on M arketplace News importance of Ronald What is a terabyte and what can you do with it? McDonald House

By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego’s eighth annual ROMP Aloha gala at the Fairmont Del Mar was an outstanding success, and the honorary chairs and an executive committee member of the Sept. 30 event shared how important this nonprofit is in their lives. The Ronald McDonald House is all about making certain that families remain intact when there is a medical crisis. There were three Rancho Santa Fe residents working behind the scenes for the 2017 ROMP Aloha: honorary chairs Susan and Scott Salka and executive committee member Jamie Straza. The Salkas shared that they were thrilled to be this year’s honorary chairs. As gala attendees over the years, they have seen the enormous growth of this event and the organization on the whole. The couple said the ROMP gala is one of San Diego’s premier events. AMN Healthcare was the ROMP Aloha title sponsor. Susan Salka is both the president and CEO of AMN Healthcare Services. “My husband Scott and I, along with AMN Healthcare, have been avid supporters for the Ronald McDonald House for well over a decade,” she said. “The AMN Healthcare team has supported the Ronald McDonald House of San Diego, Dallas and other locations with numerous hours of volunteerism, including serving meals to families staying at the home. Both personally and professionally, we value the tremendous work that the team at the Ronald McDonald house does to support families in crisis. As an organization committed to helping health care facilities deliver an effective and compassionate patient experience, AMN understands the value of complete patient care, which includes attending to the family as well as the patient.” Susan Salka added that investing time and resources to help lighten the burden of families is incredibly important. It helps encourage families to focus on the recovery of their child — a critical contribution people should make in their community, she said. The couple also pointed out that so many have already faced health challenges in their lives be it parents, a spouse, family members, friends or even children. “We can empathize with families facing difficult medical decisions and often lengthy recoveries,” Scott Salka said. “As parents ourselves, we wanted to do something to provide for families dealing with

the emotional strain and financial burden of dealing with a child’s illness. We are very grateful to have an organization like the Ronald McDonald House to help us and others channel our desire to help into compassionate and effective work for the San Diego community.” According to the Salkas, there are more than 14,000 family members each year who desperately need a “home away from home” while their children are receiving medical care in San Diego. The Ronald McDonald House is a place to find support and refuge, they said. “While the house is located near Rady Children’s Hospital, it is open to families seeking medical treatment at any San Diego health care facility,” Susan Salka said. Jamie Straza, a McDonald’s franchisee, called it an honor and a blast to be on the ROMP executive committee once again. She said she has enjoyed every minute working with a talented and hardworking group of people. “Giving back to the community that I am fortunate enough to be a part of is something that is important to me. It really has been a great experience,” Straza said. Straza shared that she has been involved with the Ronald McDonald House since she was in high school. She remembers hosting Christmas parties and volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House. “It has always been a charity that’s close to my heart,” she said. “The Ronald McDonald House keeps families together and provides a place for them to stay connected to one another in a time of need.” Straza wants people to know that even though McDonald’s restaurants and its local franchisees fund approximately 10 percent of the annual operating costs for the San Diego Ronald McDonald House, help is still needed. And this assistance can be ongoing. “The charity really relies on the generosity of individuals, community groups and corporate and foundation donors for the remaining 90 percent,” Straza said. “Events and fundraisers such as ROMP are critical in supporting the organization and the services it provides.”


Megabyte, gigabyte, terabyte. We hear these words all the time in relation to the internet, but many people may not realize which is bigger, what they are used for, and what you can do with them. Internet service providers measure the amount of data their customers use by the gigabyte. A gigabyte is 1,000 times larger than a megabyte, and one terabyte is equal to 1,000 gigabytes. Cox Communications customers are allowed a whopping one terabyte of data per month. To put it in perspective, a household can do ALL of the following every month and still not go over one terabyte of data:

• Watch 140 two-hour HD movies • Watch 100 half-hour standard definition TV shows • Watch 1,500 threeminute videos • Surf the web for 2,000 hours • Listen to 500 hours of streaming music Data use is not tied to the amount of time spent online, but rather, what you do while on the internet. Activities such as streaming movies and TV shows,

downloading music, and sharing photographs use a lot more data than emailing standard documents or reading the news online. For example, 30 minutes of streaming video will use more data than two hours of email. PASSWORD PROTECT YOUR IN-HOME WIFI While only 1.6% of Cox residential customers in San Diego use more than one terabyte of data each month in the home, in some cases customers may be draining their data unknowingly because of viruses or other malware,

outdated security software, or because they haven’t secured their in-home WiFi connection with a password, which leaves it open to others accessing it without permission. To avoid your data allowance being used up unnecessarily, keep your security software up-todate, and secure your WiFi connection with a strong password so that only those whom you give the password to can use your WiFi connection. To help its customers monitor their data usage daily and monthly, Cox provides a Data Usage Meter

that customers can access at www.cox.com/datausage. The data usage meter shows how much of the one terabyte of data allowance the customer has used in the month. This will help them keep track of how much data they’re using, and whether they need to make any changes such as checking for viruses, or if too many family or friends have their WiFi password. To learn how to protect your in-home WiFi, or for more information on protecting your computer from viruses and malware, go to www.cox.com.

Mitochondrial Dysfunction

The Woven Thread in Chronic Conditions Would you be surprised to hear that many chronic conditions have the same underlying cause? You have probably heard doctors preach about the importance of reducing inflammation and stress, incorporating an exercise routine, and eating a balanced diet. But have you ever heard a doctor recommend boosting your mitochondrial function? The unfortunate truth is many chronic conditions are being linked to impaired mitochondrial function, or the inability for your cells to produce energy. Cells that are deficient in energy are unable to repair itself, to communicate with other cells, and to maintain hundreds of other physiological processes that keep you living and breathing. In fact, a reduction in cellular energy and impaired mitochondrial function results in a domino effect that can lead to cell death. Many well known conditions, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Type 2 Diabetes, Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases have been linked to impaired mitochondrial function. The organs that require the most amount of energy, such as the brain, are especially sensitive to

energy fluctuations. Research has suggested that mitochondrial dysfunction can result in the accumulation of plaques within the brain known to cause Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, neuropathic pain, depression, anxiety and feelings of weakness are all signs of undiagnosed mitochondrial dysfunction. Unfortunately, there isn’t a test to evaluate how your mitochondria are performing on a day-to-day basis. The best diagnostic tool is your health and energy levels. “While diet, exercise and sunlight play an important role in maintaining cellular energy levels,” explains Phillip Milgram,

MD, “your mitochondria depend on a plentiful supply of NAD, or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, to produce energy.” Dr. Milgram is the Medical Director of the NAD Treatment Center, a wellness clinic that specializes in the art of intravenous NAD. Patients come from all over the country to restore their health and sense of wellbeing through NAD and other nutrient infusions. The NAD Treatment Center is stands apart from other wellness clinics in San Diego by incorporating other therapies, such as hyperbaric oxygen and neurofeedback, for an integrative approach to preventative medicine. “The benefits of NAD

never ceases to amaze me,” Dr. Milgram admits, “After a couple days of treatment, a non-responsive patient was able to verbally expressed her hunger for the first time in years. I asked her, ‘How are you feeling?’ She opened her eyes, turned to me and said ‘I’m hungry,’ a truly incredible experience for the patient and her family.” NAD has a powerful effect on the body because it is used by other parts of cell for repairing damaged DNA, regulating gene expression, and can even repair damaged neurons.

News of the Weird MOTHER OF THE YEAR Ebony Woody, 34, of Columbus, Ohio, was nothing if not thorough on the morning of Sept. 18 when, following an argument with her daughter, she purposely drove her car onto the sidewalk and struck the 17-year-old, who was walking to school, according to Columbus police. After knocking the girl down and running over her leg, Woody stopped and backed up, driving over the leg a second time. QFM96 reported Woody generously gave the girl a ride to her father's house, where she dropped her off without reporting the incident. Woody later turned herself in at police headquarters and faces charges of felonious assault, aggravated vehicular assault and endangering children. The daughter was treated for two fractures to her left leg. [QFM96, 9/20/2017] ANIMALS ON THE LAM -- Auburn, Massachusetts, police received a number of calls over the weekend of Sept. 15-17 about a wayward goat, but it wasn't until the wee hours of Monday, Sept. 18, that No. 448 was finally cor-

The "mischievous runaway farm animal" was seen on surveillance video entering the lobby of the hotel and wandering the halls, "presumably to rest a bit," said police. Peter Blash, No. 448's owner, said the goat jumped a 5-foot-high fence and "took off like a criminal." However, Blash said, "I had one that made it all the way to Sturbridge." [CBS Boston, 9/20/2017] -- Just north of Benton, Kansas, a rancher posted signs promising a reward to anyone who could help him find his missing longhorn cow, Mercedes. The Wichita Eagle reported the 3-year-old black-andwhite bovine went missing on Sept. 11 during Cross Trails, a weekly cowboy church service at Greg Johnson's Prairie Rose Ranch. Friends, neighbors and family have searched high and low for Mercedes, recognizable by her 5-footwide horns, but the only sighting of her has been near the El Dorado, Kansas, Walmart, about 10 miles away. Johnson says this isn't the first time she's run off: "She is more of a loner." [The Wichita Eagle, 9/19/2017] QUESTIONABLE JUDGMENT Coolidge, Arizona, res-

ident Victor Pratt boasts that he's played with snakes his whole life. So when a rattlesnake slithered by during a family party at a nearby lake on Sept. 7, Pratt grabbed the viper and showed the kids "how to catch it and I was playing with it like little kids do. I wasn't thinking. I was showing off," he admitted to FOX 10 News. The rattler apparently didn't want to play along and bit Pratt on his face and neck. Pratt's sons quickly drove him to a nearby emergency room, and he was later airlifted to Banner-University Medical Center Phoenix, where Dr. Steven Curry treated him. "There is a 100 percent chance he would have died if he'd not made it to the hospital within minutes," Curry noted. Pratt remained unconscious for several days. He told reporters he had learned his lesson and would not play with rattlesnakes again. [FOX 10 News, 9/15/2017] GOVERNMENT IN ACTION Texas state Rep.

Travis County also plan to present evidence of 19 additional “extraneous acts,” including accusations that Dukes spent $51,000 in taxpayer money on an online psychic, was absent for roll call 65 percent of the time, and appeared impaired at a House committee meeting when she showed up late, explaining: “I know I’m talking a lot. I’m full of morphine and will be headed out of here soon.” [Austin American-Statesman, 9/20/2017] OOPS! -- A family in Coventry, England, are "quite mortified" after calling the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in September to rescue a lizard peeking from underneath a bed in their home. But when officer Vic Hurr arrived at the home, she discovered the "lizard" was not a "lizard at all, it was a pink stripy sock." The dirty imposter sock, about 7 inches long and 2 inches wide, wasn't moving, Hurr noted. "I think the family eventually saw the funny side," an RSPCA spokeswoman told the Independent. "The sock had obviously been there quite a while. It was a typical teenager's bedroom, I suppose." [The Independent, 9/14/2017] -- The Caving Club at Indiana University ex-

plored Sullivan Cave in southern Indiana on Sept. 17, but when they headed back to campus, they forgot one thing: a 19-year-old freshman physics major who had become separated from the group and was trapped behind a locked gate. When the club president realized two days later that a caver had been left behind, members rushed back to save him. "You could tell they were pretty shaken up," the caver told the Indiana Daily Student. "They did near kill me." The student reported he licked moisture off the cave walls during the ordeal and wrote goodbye letters to his family on his iPhone until the battery died. (BONUS: The rescued caver's name is Lukas Cavar.) [Indiana Daily Student, 9/22/2017] THE WEIRD APOCALYPSE Cable television viewers in Orange County, California, were stunned on the morning of Sept. 21 when an ominous message accompanied by an "Emergency Alert" banner flashed on the screen. At increased volume, a man's voice boomed: "Realize this, extremely violent times will come," said viewer Stacy Laflamme of Lake Forest, who was watching HGTV on the Cox Communications cable system. Spectrum customers

also received the alert. The warning seemed especially timely given that doomsday writer David Meade had predicted the end of the world "as we know it" to occur two days later. Laflamme told the Orange County Register the message "sounded like a radio broadcast coming through the television." Dennis Johnson, a spokesman for Spectrum, said: "We have confirmed that we were fed an incorrect audio file," but neither company could determine where the audio had come from. [Orange County Register, 9/21/2017] BRIGHT IDEAS Kevin Michael Cook, 24, of New Castle, Pennsylvania, was too drunk to drive on Sept. 3, so he enlisted the help of an 8-year-old girl. WPXI News reports the girl told Darlington Township police that Cook, a family friend, ordered her into a car at her grandmother's house and forced her to drive him toward East Palestine, Ohio. The car stopped after nearly wrecking twice, as bystanders called 911. Police tried to give Cook a sobriety test, but he was too impaired to finish it. He was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, driving under the influence and driving without a license. [WPXI News, 9/21/2017]

Council committee formed to address bluff-top resort By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — After volunteering, Mayor Mike Nichols and Councilman Dave Zito were appointed at the Sept. 27 meeting to serve with two council members from Del Mar on a newly created standing committee that will discuss items of mutual interest to each city and provide detailed recommendations or reports to colleagues. Specifically, Nichols said, the group will focus on a proposed resort on the bluffs in Del Mar adjacent to Solana Beach. “The idea was to be that these cities would share information, concerns, questions on this important project as it moves forward through the process,” Nichols said. “I think it’s a great opportunity for our city to have a voice, interact directly with the persons who will make the decision on this project since it’s outside of our city but it impacts our city far greater than it impacts their city. “Just my opinion,” he added, “but I think we all agree.” Encinitas-based developers Zephyr Partners and Robert Green Company are in negotiations to buy a


ly “near impossible” to turn onto the roadway during the San Diego County Fair, thoroughbred horse races and KAABOO Del Mar. “But hey, that’s part of living in Solana Beach,” she added. “We’d like to see some plans to mitigate the impact to us.” The resolution states the committee will address issues of mutual interest to each city. Councilman Dave Zito suggested adding language that prohibits discussions about the Del Mar Fairgrounds since Solana Beach and Del Mar already have a committee dedicated to the state-owned facility, which also is in Del Mar

about the North Bluff Resort project. “The idea is to communicate, and if that goes beyond the North Bluff resort project to other subjects of mutual interest, that is fine as well,” Worden added. “As to the North Bluff project in particular, we realize that its impacts spill over the boundaries of both cities and Del Mar very much wants to work with Solana Beach as the project progresses through the system.” Worden said he will work on getting the issue on Del Mar’s council agenda, perhaps later this month or in early November.

Councilwomen Ginger Marshall and Jewel Edson sit on the 22nd District Agricultural Association Community Relations Committee with representatives from that board, which governs the fairgrounds, and Del Mar. Del Mar Councilman Dwight Worden said he suggested setting up an informal committee “to meet quarterly, or as needed, to discuss and share info

the guild and those in attendance at Dia del Sol. There was a collaborative effort to support United Cerebral Palsy of San Diego County. “So, my lack of a direct connection to cerebral palsy in no way minimizes the personal connection I have with this group and our cause, nor does it for anyone else in the group,” Murphy said. “I think we all feel an intrinsic responsibility to help because we can, and are also pretty proud of what we do, too.” To learn more about the Beach & Country Guild as well as Dia del Sol, visit www.beachandcountry.org.

Ana Maria Grace said. “I’m here to encourage you to move ahead with his opportunity to work collaboratively with Del Mar ... even though I know that you’re all on many committees.” Grace, who lives southeast of the project site, said she currently has a sitdown, whitewater view of the Pacific Ocean from her living room and patio and believes it will be impacted by multistory buildings on what is now a vacant lot. She also said she has concerns about employees and visitors parking in her neighborhood and traffic on Via de la Valle. Grace said it is current-

clude silent auction items, a live auction, a heartwarming children’s fashion show with models with cerebral palsy and a professional fashion show. “This year’s show is presented by Fashion Valley, a first-time partner with the Beach & Country Guild, and produced by Pam Wilson Productions,” Murphy said. “This ready-to-wear show will feature women’s fall fashions from such Fashion Valley retailers as Joie, Club Monaco, Johnny Was, and Ted Baker, with men’s looks from John Varvatos and Scotch & Soda.” For Murphy, what makes this event so special is while attendees have a marvelous time, it also serves as an educational platform to teach about cerebral palsy and those living with it. Additionally, monies raised at the event stay in San Diego to help support those in need. “… we know we’re making a difference right here for people in our community,” she said. Murphy said this event wouldn’t be possible without its generous supporters and hardworking volunteers. Some may be surprised to learn that Murphy didn’t become part of this organization because she was touched by a family member or friend with cerebral palsy. In fact, it was her mother who encouraged her to be a volunteer at Dia del Sol many years ago. Since that time, Murphy’s involvement with the organization has been a powerful experience. She noticed a camaraderie both with members of

6-acre lot made up of three residential parcels on the southwest corner of the Via de la Valle/Camino del Mar intersection above North Beach, which is often referred to as Dog Beach. They plan to build an oceanfront resort with about 250 rooms, 85 branded villas, 11 affordable for-rent units, restaurants, meeting space, a public access park and walking trails. To help meet a California Coastal Commission goal to provide low-cost access to beaches, a visitors lodge will feature 46 rooms with reduced rates regulated by the state agency. The development is in Del Mar but not adjacent to any houses. The Del Mar Fairgrounds and Brigantine restaurant are across the street to the east and North Beach stands between the proposed project and the closest homes in that city. Solana Beach could potentially be more impacted because the resort would abut residential neighborhoods in the south part of that city. “We love the quality of life here, and we’re seeing that might potentially be impacted by the Zephyr project,” 35-year resident

Solana Beach skate park entering final design phase By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — Groundbreaking for the city’s long-planned, much-desired skate park could take place early next year. Council and community members at the Sept. 27 meeting offered some final thoughts on a preferred concept created collaboratively by Van Dyke Landscape Architects and SITE Design Group based on feedback from workshops held earlier this year. “It looks great,” said Mayor Mike Nichols, who had a handful of aesthetic and safety requests for the final design. He was concerned skateboarders would be attracted to steps on the east end of the facility, adjacent to the proposed relocated half-court basketball area. “We would hope not,” SITE Design Group’s Jaxon Statzell said. “We would hope we would offer enough stuff in here that you wouldn’t go and skate the basketball court. “But sure, the nature of skateboarders is they want to ride on things that they’re not supposed to,” he added. “So we have talked about some ways to make it not skateable.” Statzell said the two or three stairs were meant to serve as seating for the basketball court or for people who want to stand behind the railing and safely view the skaterboarders. Nichols also said the 6,000-square-foot park wasn’t very colorful. “Is there a way to make it lively and have a little bit more of a theme to it?” he asked. “To introduce some color and some fun items would help, I think, make it not seem like a boring place. “It’s not going to be boring for those that are riding it, but people are going to watch,” Nichols added. “It would be interesting to jazz it up a bit.” Based on those and a few other comments, Statzell said he plans to explore the feasibility of adding colored concrete and colored metal throughout the skate park. “We are also going to revisit the entryway and donor wall design (and) see what, if anything, could be done for a potential spectator seating area,” he added. A two-phase plan to upgrade La Colonia Community Center and Park approved in 2008 included a skate park. But the project stalled when the funding source was eliminated by Gov. Jerry Brown. A few years ago a group of residents successfully lobbied the city to complete another planned element — an honor courtyard for veterans — separately from the major project. Skateboarders followed suit. SITE Design, which has designed skate parks worldwide, held two workshops that allowed skaters to design their ideal park. Based on their input, two options were created. A hybrid of both was

also created and ultimately chosen as the preferred option. It includes elements such as a bowl pocket, three-stair set with rails, China bank, stamped-brick quarter-pipe, pole jam and four-stair set with “Hubba” ledges. Statzell said the linear, plaza-style nature allows for greater use by all-level skaters.

On any given day someone will be there for the first time and the thousandth time so it was designed so beginners are safe, yet returning skaters are still challenged and stimulated, he said. The estimated cost is $821,000. To date, through events, donations, a grant from the Tony Hawk Foundation and city funds about

Pet of the Week

Are you looking for a loyal fella to accompany you along life’s dusty trails? Hutch is a perfect little companion at just 2 years old and 10 pounds. He’s not a super-rowdy guy, but he does enjoy a little dust-up around the play yard every now and then.

He loved dressing up like a cowboy for his Halloween photo shoot and wants to be home, home on the range by Halloween night. Hutch is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. He has been altered and is up-to-date on all of his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $182. As with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, he is micro-chipped for ID. Helen Woodward Animal Center is at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe, open daily Monday through Thursday from noon to 6 p.m.; Fridays from noon to 7 p.m.; Saturdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing). For more information call (858) 7564117, option No. 1 or visit animalcenter.org.

$552,000 has been raised, including $1,000 presented earlier in the meeting from the Solana Beach Sunset 5K. To make up the shortfall, the city applied for a $270,000 grant from the county’s neighborhood reinvestment program. The Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on that later this month or in early November. The skate park will include a donor wall with names engraved on plaques resembling skateboards. They will be coated to pre-

vent vandalism and graffiti. Lights will face away from the skate area to discourage night use. Skateboarders can enter the facility through a gate off Stevens Avenue, which was designed to discourage them from cutting through landscaping or the park. Based on a recommendation from resident Steve Ostrow, Nichols asked the city engineer to look into changing the existing halfcourt basketball area to a small full court. “Solana Beach would

stand out,” Ostrow said. “It would be so upscale. ... It’s unique.” “I think this full-court basketball thing sounds awesome,” Nichols said. “I think it’s worth exploring. I think it’s a neat idea. “Just do us a favor and try to see if it can work,” he said to the city engineer. “In my brain it seems like a pretty cool thing. It urbanizes the area.” Once the final design is complete, plans will be presented to council members for approval and then go out for construction bids.

Taking no chances on Friday the 13th small talk jean gillette


ow cool is this October? It not only has Halloween, but it has a Friday the 13th. I got my best report card ever on a Friday the 13th, and have since insisted it is my lucky day. It may not be, but it kind of takes the edge off. I am quite certain that I have no control over life’s whims, but my Irish paternal grandmother, Ethel O’Brien, would not agree. She grew up in New York, but carried all her Irish forbears’ superstitions with her well into the

1970s. She never spilled salt without throwing a pinch of it over her left shoulder, to ward off the bad luck. My dad laughed about it, yet somehow always did it himself. On a Friday the 13th, there are those who simply take to their beds or refuse to leave the house. The best part about it, besides an excuse to stay in bed, is that the diagnosed phobia of Friday the 13th is called "Paraskevidekatriaphobia." My grandmother simply would not sit at a table set for 13 people and many a family gathering required some shuffling and reshuffling to be sure no ill luck would befall us. If she left the house and had to come back for something, she would turn around three times before

leaving again. And one of her favorite sayings, when she would hear me whistling, was “Whistling girls and cackling hens, never come to any good ends.” Ethel would never dream of having a feather in her house, as that was begging for bad luck. Our peacock feather souvenirs from the zoo used to have to stay in the car. And, heaven forbid, if a bird got in the house, it meant someone would die. She was certain it was good news if your palm itched, because you would soon come into some money. And she had no time for cats, black or otherwise, but if a black cat crossed your path, you had to count to nine. And I remember hearing “See a penny, pick it up. All the day, you’ll have good luck,” from my

earliest visits to my grandparents. You can’t, of course, forget the luck of a fourleafed clover and I remember hours on my stomach in the clover searching for one. And I recall some reference to the weather on St. Swithin’s Day (July 15) predicting the rest of the summer. We teased her endlessly, but she never wavered. And now that I recall she lived to be 100, with a sharp mind (insisting she was only 90), perhaps I should rethink my skepticism. I think that means I’m going back to bed.

Encinitas named one of top 15 ‘under the radar’ cities By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Sandy beaches, world-class surfing, a burgeoning culinary scene and a renowned botanic garden are all in Encinitas residents’ backyards every day. Locals might take these amenities for granted. But one publication pointed to these as the reason Encinitas is one of the 15 “under the radar cities you need to visit.” Expedia.com published the article by Southern California-based travel writer Lily Rogers in its Viewfinder travel blog in September. Encinitas was named alongside cities like Amarillo, Texas; Kalamazoo, Michigan; Mystic, Connecticut; Sandpoint, Idaho; and Hampton, Virginia; each city being spotlighted for a certain type of visitor. According to the article, Encinitas is the prime location for the “coastal curious.” “This North County San Diego beach town is as picturesque as it

gets,” the article states. “The locals are friendly, smile-and-wave types, and why wouldn’t they be? They live in paradise. We’ll be preaching to the converted once you get a glimpse of Moonlight State Beach, where surfing, swimming, and picnicking never looked so good, and sunsets are super vivid (tip: don’t forget to look for the elusive green flash). “For more coastal charm, San Diego Botanic Garden introduces visitors to native and exotic plants in over 30 unique spaces,” the article continues. “Do not miss the Overlook Natural Area for telescopic ocean views from the top. For a taste of the sea, dine at Lobster West, one of the best seafood joints around, and wash it all down at Bier Garden of Encinitas, an utterly charming area favorite.” Rogers said that Encinitas is under the radar nationally as people often pass it along I-5 headed south toward San Diego. “Encinitas is a beachside gem

that travelers may overlook for better-known San Diego to the south. But they shouldn’t,” Rogers said. “Cool boutiques, casual cafes, delicious restaurants, quintessential Southern California vibes, and, of course, great beaches, make this a place everyone should put on their list.” Encinitas residents and stakeholders said they aren’t surprised by the recognition, but call it an honor nonetheless. Angie Gallo of the Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association said the city’s low-key lifestyle is a major reason why people love it, yet it stays below the national radar. “It is a quiet, artsy town filled with eclectic spaces and places to visit,” Gallo said. “We embrace our culture and lifestyle by living the dream here in Encinitas.

Attorney talks to seniors about legal documents By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Understanding legal documents can be overwhelming, especially when mapping out personal health care decisions. On Aug. 23, attorney Scott Stewart with California Estate and Elder Law helped make five of the essential documents for long-term planning more understandable. “Scott provided valuable information to attendees regarding important documents everyone needs to have in place to manage financial and health care matters,” said Terrie Litwin, MSW, executive director of the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center. The legal documents Stewart discussed were an advanced health care directive, which allows a third party to manage health care decisions; a HIPAA waiver, which provides access to health CROP care information; durable.93 power of attorney, which allows a third party .93 to manage 4.17finances; a will, which provides direction to 4.28 the court about the distribution of someone’s assets after death; and a trust, which allows a third party to manage your assets while you’re alive but incapacitated and also after death. While all these documents are vital, Stewart said one of the most important is the health care directive. “The reason why I think that is your most important document is that it gives someone the ability to manage all of your health care decisions,” he said. “What it does is, it gives somebody the ability to make those decisions for us.” Embedded in this health care directive is the whether a person wishes to be kept alive or not. “If you leave that section blank, your health care directive still does 90 percent of what it’s designed to do, which is to manage all health care decisions in the event that you can no longer communicate your wishes,”

Stewart said. “Without that document, there is no default.” Stewart went on to say that a health care directive appoints someone as an agent who can act on a person’s behalf. He said it is also advisable to have a first, second and third in line as an agent in the event someone is no longer able to fulfill the responsibility. A health care directive empowers somebody to make a medical decision, and also provides them with the authority to discontinue care or not. The agent is a health care proxy. Stewart explained that health care proxies can come in different forms such as spouses, children and friends. Professional health care proxies consist of a private fiduciary such as social workers. Corporate fiduciaries are another option. It’s up to an individual as to what they prefer. In Stewart’s opinion, the importance of this legal document doesn’t just come in to play when someone is near death or has died — it is more about capacity. An example he shared was someone with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Stewart said the agent is the individual in charge of certain responsibilities such as hiring a caregiver, placing an individual in a memory care facility, managing medication or interfacing with the person about their care because they are no longer competent to care for themselves. An agent has the authority to make that decision. Stewart also wanted participants to understand the value in choosing an agent who has consistent viewpoints about health decisions. “If you do not believe in being kept alive forever, don’t pick someone who, based on their own moral or religious belief, is going to be full code because, they have the authority to do that,” he said.

Straw house among 3 North County stops on Green Homes Tour By Bianca Kaplanek

COAST CITIES — Building a house of straw proved futile and almost fatal for one little pig, but a Solana Beach resident found it is the perfect product for a sustainable home. “It provides phenomenal insulation and the carbon footprint is low so it makes for a very ecological material,” Chris Wakeman said. “It’s sound-insulating because it’s thick.” Another bonus, he added, is that “it has no nutritional value so termites aren’t interested in it.” Wakeman’s straw-bale residence is one of three North County houses on the San Diego Green Building Council’s eighth annual Green Homes Tour, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 22. When completed, hopefully by December after nearly three years of construction, the 1,500-squarefoot house will include a variety of sustainable features. They include passive solar orientation and distributed thermal mass for comfortable year-round living, a photovoltaic solar array, rainwater catchment, greywater reuse and natural and nontoxic building materials. “My approach was to keep it simple,” the electronics engineer said. “I don’t believe in throwing technology after technology after technology. Just look at what people were doing thousands of years ago when they didn’t have fossil fuels to abuse.” For example, he said, tall buildings with floor-toceiling glass walls look modern but have no regard to the effects of the sun because air



Also, part of the updated project was approaching homeowners and obtaining new easements. “This was the work of many members of the trails committee,” she said. Putman shared that the trails process continues even today through the efforts of the Trails and Recreation Committee. Putman also wants people to know that the private trail system is for the enjoyment of Association members and their guests. “Having the use of the trail system is one of the benefits of being a member and paying the Association’s annual assessments,” Putman said. “The trails are for horseback riding and pedestrians. Pedestrian use is limited to walkers and runners in groups no larger than four, and pedestrians with pets on a leash.” Horses always have the right of way and bicycles are never permitted, she said. Association board President Fred Wasserman commended the Trails and Recreation Committee for a phenomenal job. “Association members should be appreciative of your efforts,” he said.

conditioning prevents them from becoming “roasting huts.” He oriented his home to take full advantage of the sun. South-facing windows are glazed with a high solar heat gain coefficient that allows the winter sun to provide warmth. An exterior overhang blocks the summer sun, and east- and west-facing windows have minimal glazing because the sun is close to the horizon at sunrise and sunset regardless of the time of year. As for the straw, it is nontoxic and sound-absorbing, has a better fire rating than stucco and requires less lumber for construction, Wakeman said.

It also replaces the use of carbon dioxide intensive materials such as concrete, gypsum and paint. Additionally, he said, most straw is unwanted so it is burned. Using it as a building material sequesters the carbon dioxide that is released during that process. Because clay can absorb and retain water, it is mixed with sand and chopped straw to make the plaster. Wakeman said that is the most complicated step because it must be applied by hand and requires three coats, using differing ratios of clay, sand and straw. Wakeman and his late wife, Emily, bought the Solana Beach property in 2012 with plans to build an environmentally friendly home next to an existing 1948 beach cottage, where he lives with his children. He said the added expense of sustainable features is not an issue. “I’m passionate about the environment,” he said. “Yes, it costs a lot more to build but at the same time you’re educating a lot of people about something new.” Students from Skyline Elementary School toured the home on a field trip, as did 15 Solana Beach firefighters. Wakeman’s attention to detail has slowed the process somewhat. He learned a forest in Washington state, where his wife spent childhood summers, needed thinning, so he had 76 trees removed and sent to San Diego to be used for ceiling beams. “We hand peeled the bark off,” he said. But life more than anything else is probably why

construction has taken so long. “(B)eing a single parent with two very young children does not allow me to be on a tight schedule,” he wrote on a website he created for the project. “It happens when it happens and my goal, as was Emily’s, is to enjoy the process rather than rush it to meet some artificial schedule.” Also on the tour in Solana Beach is the Sumer residence, a gut remodel of a single-family home that earned the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, Platinum certification for its commitment to lowering environmental impact. Green features include drought-tolerant and native plants, greywater and rainwater catchment systems, recycled and locally sourced materials and significant reuse of the original framing lumber. In Encinitas, Antje Heinz’s remodeled home, known as “Neuhaus,” was designed to be healthy and sustainable with lifecycle-assessed materials and energyand water-conscious features throughout. Before starting the project in June 2015, Heinz said, she had the existing structure deconstructed rather than demolished. “We carefully took it apart and distributed the pieces to building projects in Mexico and Los Angeles,” she said. “We didn’t fill up a

landfill.” The exterior cladding is a durable, environmentally friendly alternative to wood that does not fade over time, absorb moisture or allow pest infestations. It is a fiber-reinforced, hybrid material made of approximately 60 percent rice husks, 22 percent common salt and 18 percent mineral oil. A metal roof over the deck is made from recycled glass. Like the straw-bale home, Neuhaus is all electric. Additional features include drought-tolerant landscaping, a water-efficient irrigation system and tables and benches made from an Aleppo pine on the property that needed to be removed. “I’m very passionate about sustainability,” Heinz said. “I don’t think it added

time to the building but if it did I wouldn’t have cared. That wasn’t on the top of my priority list.” The Green Homes Tour, which celebrates best practices in green building and design, includes seven other residences throughout the county. On the self-guided tour, attendees can visit as many of the homes as they like, meet with industry professionals and homeowners and learn more about the latest green home design, construction and upgrade options. Tickets are available at http://usgbc-sd.org/ event-2547926. The cost is $5 for students, $10 for San Diego Green Building Council members and $15 for all others. Children younger than 18 are free.

Jaffe said this means the parties can reopen negotiations regarding salary and benefits, plus three additional articles from the agreement. Jaffe went on to explain that the articles currently up for negotiations are salaries and benefits, association rights and personal necessity leave. Frank also shared the district side of the negotiations. “The district’s current proposal includes a 1.5 percent on schedule increase and a 1.5 percent off schedule increase, plus a $25 per month increase to the District’s health benefit contribution for a total annual contribution of $9,000,” he said. “The district’s salary schedule has always been highly competitive with other local comparable school districts. Just last year the district gave the teachers a 4.5 percent on schedule increase plus an additional $50 per month in health benefit contributions.” Frank closed by saying he supported the district’s negotiation team. “The district values its teachers and remains committed to reaching an agreement in negotiations this year,” Frank said.

ood to go!” That was the signal I was waiting for as my travel writers for Taste of Wine, Scott and Nancine Hagner, hit the road to Paso Robles, one of the most popular wine countries in California, just a short half-day’s journey halfway up the coast from San Diego. In Paso and surrounds, you’ve got it all: more than 200 fine wineries, a historic downtown, deliciously crafted restaurants and the biggest wine country in California with breathtaking views. The Hagners do it right. They drive comfortably for some of the day in a 30-foot mobile home with a panoramic view of the road and landscape around them, then stop at a reserved recreational vehicle park. They pull a four-wheel drive jeep so that they can cruise nearby wineries to pop the corks on wines they want to taste test. “Our first winery stop, Laetitia Winery, was on the 101 north of Santa Maria on the way to Paso,” Nancine Hagner explained. “It happened that we stopped at a nearby park and discovered some really nice Pinot Noirs at Laetitia.” Laetitia has 440 of their 625 acres devoted to Pinot Noir, with their Reserve du Domaine 2013 ($42) a Top Ten Taste in this column. “Our plan was to arrive in Paso Robles to attend the 10th anniversary celebration at the beautiful Vina Robles Winery, and take in their events and BBQ,” Nancine added. “We tasted their fantastic 2014 Petite Sirah ($29) and as wine club members, made sure it was in one of our next shipments,” she asE sured AV me. CK RA This wine turned up as A M TA one of the Taste of Wine Top Ten Tastes in its most recent awards in September. Inky black and full bodied, this concentrated wine is barreled in steel tanks with regularly scheduled pumpovers for color and tannin extraction. From there it goes to oak barrels for 12 months of aging. The Peachy Canyon name puts a smile on my face every time I see it. One of the original wineries in Paso Robles, it was started in 1988 by Doug and Nancy Beckett on Highway 46 west, where the elevation rises and the wines get richer. Robert Henderson is the winemaker. “Peachy Canyon is one of our muststops,” declared Nancine. “Every time we go there we find a discovery and this time it was their 2014 Mal-

Lots of delicious prosciutto sliced meats are used. Like all areas, the food is rich and robust with a hearty style. This area borders Austria and Slovenia. White wines tend to be more popular here with Pinot Blanco and Pinot Grigio dominating. A creamy white sauce is used on pastas more than the traditional red sauces. Fettucine with butternut squash and ravioli with roasted duck, prosciutto and asparagus are great favorites. To check out the remaining Festa Regionale food and wine this year, visit ilfornaio.com.

bec, Ms Behave ($38). It’s a standout with its cutesy label of an exotic redhead inviting wine lovers to give her a try.” Scott and Nancine wanted to let Taste of Wine readers know that Paso is very popular this time of year, especially in summer with the Mid- State Fair in the area, so make plans early for accommodations. It does get hot in late summer and early fall so use care in dealing with the heat. Harvest Wine Weekend, the annual three-day celebration, is coming to Paso Robles Oct. 20 to Oct. 23. Enjoy grape stomps, barrel tastings, seminars and live music. Visit pasowine.com for more. IL FORNAIO SALUTES SICILY Sicily is rightly named the “melting pot of Italy.” My heritage is Sicilian and I’ve visited this island several times. The Mangios operate several cooking schools in Messina. The Greeks, Arabs and French Normans controlled this largest island in the Mediterranean, and its food and wine reflect these cultures. Il Fornaio stages an on-going Festa Regionale where one by one the Italian districts are saluted in food and wine each month. Last month was Sicily, this month it’s Friuli-Venezia.

Fried chicken is the star at Crack Shack in Encinitas

you can’t doubt the culinary chops of the chef behind the fabulous Juniper & Ivy in Little Italy. So one of the things I really like about the Crack Shack Encinitas is the open, indoor-outdoor design that

features a combination of four-top tables, picnic-style tables, high-tops and a very long bar. It’s like there is a seating area for every mood with the outdoor area perfect for families with kids as there are plenty of playtime options to keep them busy. I can’t recall a time in the past six months when I’ve driven

by that corner and not seen parents and kids in that patio area having a blast. It’s a far cry from the Coco’s that resided in this spot for years. I did have some traffic and parking concerns as the plaza it occupies has several businesses that I frequent including the FedEx, Gordy’s Bakery, CVS and yes, Smart & Final. It can get busy during peak hours but it’s not as bad as I anticipated. I’ve discovered the bar is a perfect place to pop in on a Sunday to catch a portion of an NFL game. I must say they are doing some mighty fine cocktails at the Shack along with the obligatory crafty beers on tap. Let’s talk about that hyped up chicken that people are so crazy about. First off, the chicken and eggs are all organic, free range and never frozen and sourced from Southern California farms. I’m thinking that in health conscious coastal Encinitas this was probably required by the city when they heard that a fried chicken joint was coming to town. I jest, of course, but it’s a quality move regardless. As I am with burgers, I’m of the mindset that less is


rior to the Encinitas Crack Shack opening this past February they had a media preview that I was really looking forward to. It was on my calendar and evidently I forgot to notice it until the day of the event. one of my more In bonehead culinary timing moves, I cooked up some of my killer 24-hour buttermilk soaked, triple dipped, extra crunchy with a hint of Cajun spice fried chicken the night before and had it for lunch the day of the event. So I was not necessarily craving fried chicken walking into a joint that is all about it and on top of that, I’d put my home cooked recipe up against any I’ve had in San Diego. All that aside, I was excited to check out their second location with all the hype and accolades around the first Shack that opened in Little Italy in November 2015. That spot became an instant smash and landed on all kinds of “best of� lists. Even now, the original Shack still serves serve up to 1,000 fried chicken and chicken sandwich orders on a Saturday. Crack Shack Encinitas was the second concept by Mike Rosen and chef/partner Richard Blais of Top Chef fame, who has parlayed that into full-on celebrity chef status. Randomly, I saw him pop up in the movie “Why Him?� with James Franco on a recent flight. That said,

more when it comes to fried chicken sandwiches. They captured my heart immediately when I noticed that most of the sandwiches were built around chicken thighs, my favorite part. A side note here, if you would like to read a very funny yet true story about chicken thighs, seek out “The Raw and the Cooked: Adventures of a Roaming Gourmand� book by Jim Harrison and read the chapter titled “Where have all the thighs gone?� But back to my point, I found that the Firebird with spicy fried thigh, cool ranch, crispy onions and pickles on a potato roll was about as

simple as they came at the Shack and well, with some Ranch dressing to dip it in it was a solid sandwich. At $11 it’s not cheap, but given the quality of the ingredients I’m not going to complain about that price. There are eight other sandwiches with clever names, stacked with eggs and bacon and fries and such and if that’s your thing I’m quite certain they will appeal. There is even a sort of fish sandwich in the mix with the Sea Senorita with seared rare tuna, pepper rub, mustard seed tartar, romaine and pickles on wholewheat brioche. There is also straight-

up fried chicken available at $15 for five pieces and $29 for 10. Not cheap, but remember, this is not KFC here folks, it’s solid fried chicken from happy local poultry. They have some very nice salads as well with the Baja Chop being my favorite. I split a sandwich and the Anti-Salad Power Bowl recently along with an order of deviled eggs and we were happy campers without being overly full. The Power Bowl has a very generous portion of smoked chicken, soft boiled egg, heritage grains, Chato’s salsa, avocado and arugula for $10. It was one of the better values on the menu as it

can easily feed two. The Mini Biscuits with miso-maple butter were fun and they have a kid ‘s meal that includes either nuggets, grilled chicken or grilled cheese. Just an FYI, if you see what appears to be a long line along the outside, that’s simply where you put in your order then they give you a number. Despite being a very popular place and dong steady business, there is usually a place to sit, even it it’s at the bar. Get to the Encinitas Crack Shack at 407 Encinitas Blvd or carry out at (760) 230-2968 or visit www.crackshack.com.
