Roundabouts EIR gets certified With OK, search for funding begins By Tony Cagala

RANCHO SANTA FE — The search for funding to build three new roundabouts in Rancho Santa Fe has begun. Following the San Diego County Board of Supervisor’s certification of the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) last week, the county is moving forward with the traffic project meant to help alleviate extensive congestion along a stretch of Del Dios Highway. The county will also continue to negotiate with the Rancho Santa Fe

Community Services District (RSFCSD) and the Rancho Santa Fe Association to fund the maintenance of landscaping and lighting at the three roundabouts on county-maintained roads. There is no timeline for the project to begin until funding is secured, according to Alex Bell, a county communications officer. The roundabouts will be constructed at three intersections: Via de la Valle/La Fremontia, El Montevideo/La Valle Plateada and El Camino del Norte/Del Dios Highway — which are currently controlled by four-way stop signs and notorious for traffic backups. Cost for the construction of the three roundabouts is estimated at ap-

proximately $6 million and will take about 12 to 18 months to complete, Bell said. The county will be seeking grants to help pay for the costs. “It might qualify for the grant funding under the Active Transportation Program, the Highway Safety Improvement Program and future Federal Highway Administration and State Transportation grants,” Bell said. County Supervisor Bill Horn, whose district oversees Rancho Santa Fe, said the roundabouts project is a tremendous solution. “It helps the traffic to move,” he added. Horn made a motion to certify TURN TO ROUNDABOUTS ON 22

RANCHO SANTA FE — In May, the Rancho Santa Fe Association signed a $13.5 million letter of intent (LOI) with Hotwire Communications in an effort to bring a community-owned proposed fiber-to-the-home network for its Covenant members. Connectivity options ranged from 1 gigabit to 10 gigabit internet service to every Covenant home. During the RSF Association’s October board meeting, it was revealed that the proposal was reassessed during an executive session and a decision to end the contract with Hotwire emerged. RSF Association President Fred Wasserman approached the topic to their members. In the executive session they had earlier that morning between the Finance Committee, Technology Committee and the Board, Wasserman said, they discussed the issue of the Hotwire contract. “It was the conclusion of the group, all committees and Board members present, that the current LOI, letter of intent, is not satisfactory,” Wasserman said. He continued, “Now, that gives us an option to look at some other alternatives as well, if need be, and that’s where we’re at. Let me tell you something — we are moving ahead with a fiber-optic project here. We’re going to do it right, we’re going to do it carefully and we’re going to bring it on budget.” Wasserman went on to say that this is a very important item to the community. He also mentioned the amount of calls both he and the board receive regarding connectivity. Wasserman shared how he had a call not too long ago from a member. “He builds a $5 million house in here but has virtually no connectivity and is very upset about it,” said Wasserman, noting the phone call. Wasserman also wanted everyone to know how another individual approached him on the same issue. This particular member was postponing their remodel until they were certain of connectivity. “So this is a very, very important process and we’ll keep you informed as we go along,” Wasserman said. RSF Association Director Allen Finkelson echoed what Wasserman expressed stating that

could not reach a satisfactory definitive agreement with Hotwire. He added that it was their belief that they would not be able to arrive at definitive documentation which would be satisfactory to the committees, the board or the members. “We can’t just unilaterally terminate this deal with Hotwire, so what we’re going to do is tell them where we are and try to reach a mutual agreement on termination,” he said. And Finkelson believed that would happen. Finkelson also pointed out that the next step was to quickly form a new Technology Committee, which would be dedicated to bring the fiber-optic project to the Covenant as soon as possible. During public comment, it was asked wheth-

We are moving ahead with a fiberoptic project here. We’re going to do it right, we’re going to do it carefully and we’re going to bring it on budget.” Fred Wasserman President, RSF Association

er or not future technology meetings would be open for members to attend. Wasserman explained that a chairperson of a committee has the prerogative to close the meeting. For example, if it’s a contract item of an executive session that could be a closed meeting. So essentially, it’s up to the chairperson of that meeting. “Let me tell you this,” Wasserman said. “There will be lots of visibility on this project and transparency. You will hear of every step along the way, you’ll know exactly what’s going on and you’ll have plenty of opportunity for input.”

RSF Foundation officially celebrates 35 years of service By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Foundation has officially celebrated its 35th anniversary. The nonprofit has helped navigate other nonprofits in their own mission of charitable giving. Since its inception, the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation has gifted more than 6,000 grants and committed more than $52 million to roughly 600 nonprofit organizations. In the same breath, the Foundation has indicated that they have reached an impressive milestone equating to $100 million assets under its management. Celebrating these landmarks, the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation decided to host its Board and

Staff 35th Anniversary Service Project. Many attended this special event which was held on Oct. 13 at Coastal Roots Farm in Encinitas. “In recognition of the 35th Anniversary, we wanted to provide an opportunity for board and staff to volunteer together in a hands-on community service project,” said Christy Wilson, executive director of the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation. “Not only will we be doing community service, but we will be doing it together and having fun.” According to Wilson, they picked this venue because the Coastal Roots Farm is a program of the TURN TO FOUNDATION ON 16

RANCHO SANTA FE — During the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s October monthly board meeting, ballots were counted at one end of the room by election inspector, Bruce Bishop, and his team. The tabulations from this community-wide vote indicated that from a total of 932 ballots submitted, 704 members voted to approve the proposed new and amended changes to the Association’s articles and bylaws while 226 members opposed it. A total of two votes were deemed as voided. Some of the article and bylaw changes included complying with Davis-Stirling and California Corporations Code, eliminating inconsistencies in the articles, bylaws and laws, removing the nominating committee, and simplifying member voter registration. Another item was that a Covenant property owner of record was entitled to two votes. During the early portion of the board meeting, RSF Association President Fred Wasserman introduced Bishop who explained a little bit about the voting process, which was determined by California State Law. According to Bishop, having ballots being mailed out 30 days prior to the election or the process that there are three envelopes is state law. And it’s also state law to verify signatures. Bishop explained that

as soon as the ballots go out, he and his team are the only ones to have access to the post office key. “We collect the ballots on a regular basis. We do not open them. The only thing that we do is verify the signatures against those signatures that are on file in the Association office, and that’s our first step,” he said. Bishop said the second step is the day of tabulation which the Association identified as that day. “We will open the boxes for the first time and we will remove the actual ballots from the ballot mailing envelopes,” he said. “After

tabulations. “Nobody else has any access to the ballots. They are always locked up,” said Bishop, adding how the keys were only in his possession so no one else has any influence over the ballots. Following the tabulations, RSF Association Director Allen Finkelson wanted to know what would now happen to the ballots. Bishop explained that the ballots are kept for a number of years per statute. “They are sealed in a box and I sign the box,” he said. “Only the inspector of the elections has access to those ballots from now on.”

we’ve removed those, we’ll open up each one of the ballots one at a time and tabulate either yes or no, and then we’ll report the results to the Board. It’s pretty simple.” Wasserman then confirmed with Bishop that no one from the Association has touched those ballots. Bishop confirmed this while adding that the law does not allow any other person other than the inspector of an election and the team of the inspector of an election to have any access to the ballots. And this includes from the time they are printed until the time of

Community Commentary

A vacuous vision By Ralph Thielicke

Letters to the Editor A vote for MM Ballot Measure MM provides funds for MiraCosta College to build new, up-to-date science and nursing instructional facilities as required by industry norms. MiraCosta’s bare-bones bond measure is its first in about 50 years. Community colleges such as MiraCosta serve two customers. First, MiraCosta serves the local businesses by providing an educated workforce. Second, MiraCosta serves the local community by providing a means for people to gain the skills and education that match the business needs. This results in higher living standards, economic growth and new career and business opportunities. As a founder of a North County high-tech manufacturing company, I can attest to the important role MiraCosta plays in educating our local workforce to the level required by businesses. Furthermore, one in three of our local high school graduates will get their start in higher education or attain their trade skills at MiraCosta. MiraCosta prepares students for careers in STEM fields, which dominate our local economy. In order to continue to fill the needs of the students and meet the expectations of our local businesses the infrastructure at MiraCosta must be drastically improved. Please join me in voting yes on MM.

Shea’s experience is broad, his support wide. Don’t fall for deliberately deceptive fliers. Edith H. Fine, Encinitas KAABOO noise I am writing in regards to the Oct. 7 article, “Council Addresses to KAABOO complaints.” We live seven miles south from where KAABOO was held (next to Torrey Hills Park). Last year we heard loud pounding music in our home for many hours. The organizers claimed it was the heat and wind that “pushed” the sound here, when this is nonsense. This year the noise was even louder so we filed a complaint. It seems to us that the organizers moved the speakers so the sound was perhaps not as loud for surrounding Del Mar neighbors, but it was louder in our Torrey Hills neighborhood. For KAABOO to claim that there were no noise violations this year, and that the sound was 64.6 decibels is ridiculous. Next year we plan on leaving San Diego during this obnoxious and exceedingly loud event. Why aren’t they being fined for continual noise violations? And shame on the Board of Directors for approving KABOO for five years!

In fact this project will be anything but affordable housing. I am a retired firefighter. I know an area that is unsafe when I see it, been on 2003 and 2007 fires in Valley Center. Retired Fire Chief of Escondido Vic Reed stated in the ballot statement how unsafe this project is. I hope my fellow residents of San Diego County vote No On B. This could happen to your town having everyone in the county vote on something in your community. Please spread the word for us.

Mr. Degher’s Community Commentary (“Vision versus vacuum,” Oct. 14) illustrates the dismissive attitude that is Catherine Blakespear’s campaign for mayor. Incredibly, Mr. Degher thinks Paul Gaspar is an outsider in Encinitas, even though he has lived here for 22 years, is raising a family here, started a thriving business that contributes to our tax base, and is involved in numerous local civic groups. According to Mr. Degher no one can “possibly understand the soul connection we locals feel to this place,” presumably unless you have been here as long as Ms. Blakespear. Fortunately Mr. Gaspar doesn’t dismiss 90 percent of our residents as outsiders. On the subject of the rail trail, did anyone notice the blatant falsehood at the mayoral forum by Ms. Blakespear when challenged on her support for the railroad alignment? She justified her vote change, “because we did not have any control over that project. It was SANDAG’s project, a regional board outside of the city, and it was a concrete monolith that was being taken off the shelf of SANDAG and shoved into the Cardiff corridor.” The attempt to blame the rail trail mess on SAN-

Michael O’Connor, Valley Center Vote no on B Do you know what Measure B is? Measure B is not about affordable housing. Measure B is about one developer (Accretive) wanting to build one development (Lilac Hills Ranch), that wasn’t going to be approved! They found a loophole, hired people to collect signatures, got it on the ballot, and are banking on you being stupid enough to think that this is about fixing our “affordable housing crisis.” Why would the mayor of Chula Vista be so concerned about building in Valley Center? Only she can answer that. This I know for sure; voting yes, on Measure B does not mean that anyone will be getting affordable housing. Not in Chula Vista; not anywhere. Accretive Development would never build affordable housing. It’s not profitable for them. Earlier this year we all watched the citizens of Carlsbad defeat another developer, despite being over-spent exponentially. We can do this! We can defeat this greedy, shady developer. Measure B is not about affordable housing. It’s about a massive cluster of homes, in the middle of nowhere, that breaks the codes of San Diego County’s General Plan, with so much insufficient infrastructure and safety concerns, that our elected officials couldn’t approve it. Lee Marzano-Schwarz Valley Center

DAG staff is jaw-dropping in its lack of integrity. Check out the May 20, 2015 City Council meeting Agenda item #10C on the city’s web site to verify the facts. The staff report for this item describes two optional alignments for the city to choose from; the Rail Corridor Alignment and the Highway 101 Reutilization Alternative. The Rail Corridor Alternative describes 10-feet of concrete, 2-feet of DG and a 5-foot walking path. Blakespear chose the railroad alignment over residents’ objections. Mr. Degher dismisses Paul Gaspar’s commitment to fairness, transparency and fiscal responsibility as blah-blah. Which, when you look at Blakespear’s actions in making partisan appointments to the Coastal Mobility and Livability Working Group, it is clear why the campaign might not want to discuss ethics. Mr. Degher applauds Blakespear’s emphasis on “getting people out of their cars and into other modes of transit, such as biking and walking,” as the way to reduce traffic and fight climate change. Cars are how 99 percent of us get around no matter how many bike paths are built. Biking and walking are primarily a recreational activity that do not replace a significant number

of vehicle trips and do not appreciably reduce our carbon footprint. We are a low-density city and we don’t want to get denser, so we will remain by design car-oriented. Blakespear’s lauded vision is more bromide than visionary. The purchase price of the Pacific View property and the resulting embarrassing Golden Fleece award is another issue that the Blakespear campaign wishes would go away. Mr. Degher is convinced that the $10 million price paid for the site is justified by checking the values on real estate websites, though it was professionally appraised much, much lower. Unfortunately property valuation requires a certified appraiser rather than merely checking a website. Mr. Degher is concerned about a potential conflict if both Gaspars win. Sorry, but it’s not a problem in Chula Vista where the mayor is the wife of the local supervisor. We recently had another burglary in Cardiff. While Paul Gaspar supports the idea of adding a full time deputy, Ms. Blakespear decided that additional overtime for deputies to patrol downtown Encinitas was good enough. Ralph Thielicke is a Cardiff-by-the-Sea resident.

Online comments RE: “Packard chided for online post calling resident a ‘twit,’” Oct. 14 Name-calling and bullying are the last refuges of the cowardly. Nextdoor has support personnel, local Neighborhood Leads, and online help information that all users have access to if they are frustrated by the system or some aspect of it. Each Nextdoor user can also customize their settings to control how much and what type of email

that they receive, so that they do not receive unwanted emails. If Mr. Packard had contacted his local Lead, for example, he could have been taught how to modify his Nextdoor settings. Instead of trying to identify and fix his “spam problem,” he chose to attack a Nextdoor user who had perhaps the same level of knowledge about Nextdoor’s inner workings. However, her reaction upon learning about what

had happened due to a lack of understanding was to immediately apologize and to apologize a few more times on top of it. She did not strike out at her neighbors. As a representative of Carlsbad, Mr. Packard should do more than count to 1,000 when posting, but should consider how what he says reflects upon the city of Carlsbad and the city Council.

RANCHO SANTA FE — One of the resolutions approved during the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s monthly board meeting in October referenced putting into place the policy and procedure for access to Association records. It was approved and is now referred to as Resolution 2016-115. RSF Association Board President Fred Wasserman indicated that he worked on this resolution with RSF Association Director Allen Finkelson, along with information provided by the Association’s attorney. “And now we have a very, very clean document,” Wasserman said. “We’ve actually started using it in the office on a test basis.” Wasserman explained that if a member wants to request any information that they are entitled to under the law, they could go to the Association, and fill out a form. From there it gets processed. “So we now have it in writing and this also will be put up on the website as well so you can see it,” said Wasserman, noting how they wanted to be very transparent. Wasserman described this new resolution as in compliance with the Da-

vis-Stirling Act and one that was easier due to the form process. “It’s far simpler, far more complete and far more user-friendly than what it was before,” he said. During the public comment, one member questioned why there was a 10day delay in receiving the information following the form request. Wasserman shared that this was a statutory requirement. In essence, the Association has that amount of days to provide the material. Some information is not readily available, he said. In some particular instances Association staff may be able to provide the information requested more swiftly and not require the entire 10 days “It gives us 10 days in order to comply,” he said. Wasserman encouraged the members to read their new policies and procedures. “You’ll find that it’s far more comprehensive, far more informative and tells you a lot more than what you had before,” he said. Wasserman added, “It gives you everything in there and you can delegate a person to pick up the information for you, if you want. That process did not exist before.”

Rowe school achieves leading scores in the county Middle By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Results from the statewide Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) are in. According to Rancho Santa Fe School District Superintendent David Jaffe, R. Roger Rowe Middle School was actually the top scoring middle school in the county. Jaffe shared that the information gleaned from the test was the ability to look at the students’ growth from one year to the next. In the areas of math scores, 90 percent of the sixth grade students met or exceeded the standards. For the category of English Language Arts, 97 percent of the

sixth grade met or exceeded those standards. “Those numbers are amazing,” Jaffe said. “They really are.” For seventh grade, 92 percent of the students met or exceeded standards in math and 88 percent of the students met or exceeded this in English Language Arts. One class higher, Jaffe cited that in the eighth grade 86 percent of the students met or exceeded in math, and 90 percent of the students met or exceeded in English Language Arts. Jaffe explained that based on the test scores last year, the district implemented “enrichment times” three days a week on Tues-

days, Wednesdays and Thursdays. “So there were programs put in place to support the higher academic level of students and also the students that needed support,” he said. “Because of the class sizes and the teachers’ relationship and connection to each of the students, they really can do individualized, one-on-one type work with them.” Jaffe noted that the elementary school also had wonderful numbers in their testing, as well. “For third grade, we had 92 percent in math and 93 percent in English; in fourth grade, we had 85 percent in math and 75 percent in English; and, in fifth grade we had 80 percent in math and 83 per-

cent in English,” he said. Jaffe pointed out from the data general conclusions were made. “But to really look at how individual programs are affecting the students, we need to look at individual student growth in each of the subject areas and then within each of the subjects areas, each of the claims,” he said. At a recent school board meeting, Jaffe said how they presented the overall data and then provided highlights of the disaggregated data. He believed this demonstrated the depth to which the data was TURN TO SCORES ON 16

I love Halloween ­— minus the scary


’ve always been a big chicken. Nothing’s changed. I don’t watch horror movies, I don’t search for the biggest, highest, longest roller coaster and you will never get me up in a hot air balloon. I do, though, love Halloween, in a scaredy-cat kind of way. I didn’t realize what a lightweight I was until the trend began for truly grisly, realistic Halloween décor. I am really hoping all the body parts on lawns throughout my neighborhood will make the little ones seek a career in medical care. The only other option would be that they will all become mass murderers who are ho-hum about dismembering their victims. Things like the haunted houses and zombie events have always and still do give me hives. But it seems they get ever more terrifying. I realize that grown-ups don’t really think the actor dressed as a zombie is going to eat their brains, but I am not a fan of sudden surprises. I’m convinced I am the last non-adrenalin junkie left on Earth. And as nature will have it, my children laugh at my queasiness and revel in the goriest possible Halloweens. My son, as many of you know, did go into medicine, so that is the basis of my theory. My daughter went right off the deep end. Halloween is her absolute favorite holiday and her costumes have always involved stick-on wounds, dripping blood and mayhem. She loves nothing better than to throw a Halloween party and I usually get roped into helping her prepare. For a couple of years, I made the huge mistake of buying her adorable decor and serving dishes featuring cute vampires and funny witches. These were TURN TO SMALL TALK ON 16

Officer involved shooting shuts down portion of Coast Highway 101 in Encinitas By Tony Cagala

ENCINITAS — At least four shots were fired from a Sheriff’s deputy following the pursuit of a known gang member and a residential burglary suspect. The suspect, who was identified as 35-year-old Joseph Ramos, was shot twice, sustaining non life-threatening wounds, according to Sheriff’s officials on Monday evening. Lt. Ken Nelson of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said the event began shortly before 2:30 p.m. when Sheriff’s deputies at Orchard Wood Road in Encinitas recognized Ramos, who was wanted for a string of burglaries where several weapons had been taken. Ramos also had a felony warrant out for his arrest. Deputies saw Ramos appear to be acting suspiciously, according to Nelson, believing him to possibly be planning to commit another robbery. Deputies tried to intercede when Ramos jumped into a black truck and fled the scene. Nelson said a short vehicle pursuit ensued,

school robotics becoming more robust By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — As the school year pushes forward, Rancho Santa Fe School District Superintendent David Jaffe noted some updates and happenings. Earlier in the month, its Red Envelope Day fundraiser was celebrated, and according to Jaffe, the participation percentage was higher this year than the previous year. “Our robotics program is beginning its work towards the competitions in spring. We went from nine students at the middle school level to 22 students,” he said. Jaffe added, “So we now have three middle school teams. The elementary program, since its inception, has been pretty strong, but the middle school team is getting stronger.” Jaffe shared that in the last school year, one of their robotics teams ranked 30th in the nation among all of the high school robotics programs — and they did it as eighth graders. Also on the calendar are musical and drama performances. On the athletics program roster, Jaffe noted that all the sports are doing very well on campus. Jaffe pointed out that a great deal goes into the success of their students. “You have to have really dedicated teachers willing to continue to look for ways to meet students’ needs. You have to have parents that are actively involved and care about their students’ performance and growth and, most importantly, you have to have kids that are excited,” he said. “And that’s one of the great things about Roger Rowe is the kids come to school excited to learn.”

The clothes of Joseph Ramos, 35, a known gang member and residential burglary suspect, lie on the ground in the area where he was treated for injuries sustained during an officer involved shooting.

but deputies dropped the pursuit when it appeared to become unsafe. When deputies caught up to the Ramos again near the intersection of Rancho Santa Fe Road and Manchester Avenue, Ramos carjacked a 2-door Toyota Scion with a father and 7-year-old son inside. Deputies followed Ramos, who was in the passenger side of the Sci-

on, and tried to conduct a traffic stop. The vehicle failed to yield until they approached the 1500 block of Highway 101. “When the deputies finally were able to stop the car, Mr. Ramos exited from the passenger seat and ran away from the car,” Nelson said. Nelson said a deputy got into a short foot pursuit with Ramos, when,

according to Nelson, Ramos pulled a gun from his waistband and pointed it at the deputy. “The deputy fired several rounds, striking Mr. Ramos we believe… twice. His wounds are non life-threatening,” Nelson said. According to Nelson there were at least four TURN TO SHOOTING ON 16

RANCHO SANTA FE — Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Education Department has been busy delivering spooky sights and fall fun at Howl-O-Ween Harvest Excursions since the beginning of October, but that hasn’t stopped them from coming up with some brand new surprises for this year’s Howl-OWeen Harvest Family Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 30, between at the Center’s Education Building, 6461 El Apajo Road.

VISTA — When the mysterious “origami guy” — for lack of a better term — approached Kait Matthews, owner of Art Beat on Main Street, with the idea to participate in the annual World Tree of Hope in San Francisco — coloring, decorating and writing messages of hope on origami cranes — it hardly seemed a difficult decision. And so after agreeing, cranes of nearly every size began filling up the art gallery a few days ago, waiting for anyone to come in and put their own touches on them before they’re shipped up to San Francisco to hang on the tree. “We’ve got tons of them and we’re asking all the visitors to come in,” Matthews said. Visitors are able to pick an origami crane and can either decorate it at Art Beat or take it home and then bring it back. The mysterious artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, (whether he’s even a he or not, Matthews remained tightlipped on), has a history of installing origami creations around business storefronts in Vista, and other cities, adding a lot of positivity in the community, according to Matthews. And this will the first time Art Beat will be a part of it. Matthews said the origami artist did the same thing last year, creating lots of the folded paper creations and sending them up to San Francisco,

where the Tree of Hope is set up in the City Hall’s rotunda. The World Tree of Hope is in its 11th year, and is the largest annual origami decorated holiday tree in the world, according to the Rainbow World Fund, which organizes the event. The tree will be on display beginning Nov. 21 to Jan. 3, 2017, and be decorated by at least 15,000 cranes with messages on them received from all around the world. Vista, Matthews hopes, will be well-represented, though she knows it’s a little bit last minute. “We’re going to do the best we can to get as many up there as possible and get as many up there as possible with the wishes, dreams and hopes of people that color them, create them and make them artful,” Matthews said. So far, a number of the messages on some of the finished cranes at Art Beat range between ones of love to ones of hope. “And then some messages are personal, like wishing somebody wellness or good health, or for somebody that’s going through a hard time,” she said. Matthews has done a few of the cranes, too, and looks to do a few more before the deadline of Oct. 31. Art Beat on Main Street is at 330 Main Street in Vista.

Talking Kombucha with Bambucha Kombucha Another hipster/hippie concoction to heal everything I thought to my smug, uneducated self. It wasn’t until I was browsing the opening of the new Lazy Acres store in Encinitas and saw at least a

dozen brands of Kombucha in a section dedicated entirely to it that I decided to follow up with Steven and Michael and learn more. These guys have impressive culinary resumes and are not the type to jump on a trending bandwagon without the skills and intuition that this isn’t Steven

Strupp, left, and Michael Zonfrilli, founders of Bambucha Kom- a fad but a new beverage

Meet Peachy Canyon and Benziger from the Wine & Roses Tasting

taste of wine frank mangio


or 33 years, the venerable Wine and Roses event has graced the wine events calendars in San Diego. It’s the longest running event of its kind here and it has benefited Camp Oliver, a disadvantaged youth summer camp in nearby Descanso, where more than $2 million has been donated. This year it was held in a luxurious intimate atmosphere, the elegant Darlington House in downtown La Jolla, now open for meetings and events. The Egyptian and Andalusian patios, surrounded by blooming gardens, fit some 25 wineries that were carefully selected. Selections poured ranged from nearby Temecula to the legendary Napa Valley, and most wine countries in between. Paso Robles and Sonoma are high on my list of excellent wine appellations. Large and rangy, they have hundreds of wineries. We’ll spotlight two from Wine and Roses. Peachy Canyon winery was born in 1988, founded by Doug and Nancy Beckett. These dedicated owners make nothing but low production sustainable wines. One of the best known wineries in Paso Robles, it’s just off Highway 46 west, a blessed terrain with the right amount of heat spikes and foggy cool-downs, and where Cabernets can thrive right alongside Zinfandels. Zin has for a long time been Peachy Canyon’s goto wine varietal. Their 2014’s are out now and are showing a wild vibrancy with deep plum and mushroom flavors leading to a long textured finish. Visit peachycanyon.com for brands and prices. Another winery at the event was Benziger and its

limited production sister, Imagery. Both are minutes away from each other near the city of Sonoma, Calif. Benziger is well known for its Bordeaux style wines on 85 terraced acres. Imagery produces rare and small production varietals from far-away places, and is only available for purchase at the winery. Wines like the 2013 Lagrein and the 2013 Teroldego from northern Italy, 2015 Alberino from northwest Spain and my favorite, a 2013 Petit Verdot from France, all produced in Sonoma. This robust Petit Verdot is cellar-worthy for several years, with 18 months of oak aging ($42). Visit benziger.com.

Adopt a pet during Home 4 the Holidays RANCHO SANTA FE — Mike Arms, president & CEO of Helen Woodward Animal Center and founder of Home 4 the Holidays, together with adoptable puppies and business leaders from Blue Buffalo, launched the 2016 Blue Buffalo Home 4 The Holidays pet adoption drive at Nasdaq in Times Square Oct. 1. The annual campaign runs through Jan. 2. “According to the Human Society of the U.S., only 30 percent of pets in U.S. households are rescued from animal care centers and 3.4 million orphan pets lose their lives in shelters every year,” said Arms. “We started Home 4 the Holidays to save lives and raise awareness about the joys of pet adoption during the season when more families bring a new pet into the home than any other time of year.” With more than 12 million orphan pets adopted since 1999, Home 4 the Holidays includes a network of more than 4,000 pet adoption agencies, facilities and rescue groups. The program has become the largest pet adoption campaign on record. Blue Buffalo will distribute 600,000 pet adoption kits to participating shelter and rescue organizations to help pet parents who adopt an orphan pet get off to a great start. The kits include pet food coupons and a “petfolio” to track health information and commemorate pet milestones. Visit home4theholidays. org for information on participating animal shelters and how pet lovers can get involved. Promote pet adoption by using #IChoseToRescue.

Fall, as I remember it Northbound vince vasquez


s a bornand-raised Northern Californian, I’ve never quite gotten used to fall here in North County. Try as I might. Maybe for me, it’s a hunger for nostalgia, childhood memories, that keeps me from fully accepting fall as we experience it here. In that sense, it’s not that somehow fall is better in the San Francisco Bay Area, it’s that fall, for me, is a reconnection to the world I once knew. I have fond memories of slowly settling into fall. By September, we would have overcast — the sky would be blanketed in light gray clouds, which had no contours and no edges. It was almost like nature’s way of setting the stage. Soon following, there would be a slight chill in the air, that got colder and deeper as you approached the holidays. Eventually, the chill in the air gave way to a breeze, then to windy days, and windy nights. In front of my childhood home, we had a tall


Leichtag Foundation, which has been a significant supporter of North County Senior Connections at the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation. Wilson went on to explain that this special day would help enhance the knowledge and understanding for their board and staff regarding work and connection between Coastal Roots Farm and the Leichtag Foundation. “The produce we


summarily rejected. There would be no cuteness at her party, thank you. For her last party, she made cupcakes topped with sugar glass shards, which bled. She made cupcakes with small hatchets in them, which also bled. She had lifelike Jell-O eyeballs and a dreadful flying skull that hangs in


p.m. Tickets are $59.95 for six wines from six Baja wineries, with food stations of Baja-style cuisine, all on the Harbor Float at the restaurant. Call (619) 814-1300 for details and RSVPs. Capri Blu in Rancho Bernardo has a Chateau Montelena Napa wine din-

maple tree, and my job was to rake the falling leaves and spiny seeds it would drop. Sisyphean task. However, I can still recall colorful leaf piles, the green grass in our yard, and how alive everything was on that street. I remember my mother using the oven more often for cooking, in part to warm up the house in the evening. Chicken pot pies. Meat stews. All of course leading up to a plump, juicy turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. The smell of spices and seasoning permeating throughout the house. How wonderful it was, the idea of sharing heat to keep warm; a fire in the fireplace, or a cup of hot chocolate. Later, when I moved to San Francisco to start my career, I was always eager to enter a lively, warm café, restaurant or bar in the fall months. Everyone was dressed in their fall best; food and drink menus sourced from seasonal ingredients. We have nothing like that here. Here in North County, summer extends on forever, until it doesn’t. The Santa Ana winds in October make for unbearably hot days and nights, especially those of us without air conditioners in our homes. Seasonal allergies hit, everything is dry. The sun saturates every surface. You’re uncomfortably

reminded you live in a desert. Then, suddenly, without warning, it’s cold and the nights are long. Fall in North County is like an expensive halogen bulb that bursts in a final flash of light and heat, then leaves everything dark. A false sense of constancy that ends abruptly and unceremoniously. Sad, really. How we welcome the seasons (or not) also matters somewhat. Most women here I would say change their attire for the fall, but there’s a lot of men in San Diego who don’t. Stubbornly beholden to that aggressively casual dress code of board shorts, flip flops and a tee, regardless of the weather. I remember taking a recent November flight to Dallas, where the temperatures were hovering around 38 to 40 degrees. There were more than a couple San Diegans on that flight in flip flops and tees. I don’t really understand that, but it’s your choice how you live. Maybe fall is simply a mindset then, for all of us. Choosing to change with the seasons. Celebrating that change, and everything that comes with it. Change is good, North County.

picked in the morning will be donated to the farm’s local partners, including Community Resource Center, St. Andrews Church, Jewish Family Service, Camp Pendleton and Kitchens for Good,” Wilson shared. From 8 a.m. to noon, the day was filled with much to do. While harvesting produce was a great morning task to perform, Wilson said, there was a special tour of the Coastal Roots Farm including its eight-and-a-half acre Food Forest and two acre biody-

namic vineyard. Wilson shared that following the tour, attendees had the opportunity to enjoy a savory farm fresh salad and try their hand at a pickling workshop. “The RSF Foundation is a resource to our donors about the many philanthropic opportunities available to them throughout San Diego County,” Wilson said. “But we have found that nothing beats making a personal site visit or volunteering at a local nonprofit.”

a place of honor. The food was served in beakers and test tubes and bowls with gnarly hands coming out of them. There was smoke coming from the punch bowl and she drapes cobwebs over everything. You get the idea. I am heartened that my cute decorations in the school library were well received, and am hoping my young friends who come by

my house to trick-or-treat will be content with traditional jack-o-lanterns and such. Gee. The year I dressed up like a witch, I even scared a few little ones off. I’m sticking with cute.

He also described the SBAC as a good snapshot. “It gives you an indication of the schools’ progress, and when you go deep into it, you can see students’ progress — it’s just one measure — but we’re pretty darn excited,” Jaffe said.

shots fired but no more than eight. Ramos did not fire any shots. Ramos was taken to a local hospital where he was being treated for his wounds. At this time, Nelson couldn’t say where Ramos was shot. Some witnesses at the scene said Ramos was shot at least once in the foot. An employee working at Scott’s Automotive near where the shooting took

place, said he heard the commotion and came out to see what was happening. He said he heard the deputy order Ramos to get on the ground before he started running northbound on the highway and heading toward the train tracks and that’s when the deputy fired his weapon. There is no body or dash camera footage to use as evidence. Information on the deputy who fired the shots would be provided within 72 hours,

category poised to go mainstream. I should also mention that I’ve been drinking their stuff for about a month and love it as a healthy alternative to soda. Here are some highlights from our recent conversation.

There are all kinds of purported health claims surrounding it, you guys have been drinking it, what have you noticed? Michael Zonfrilli: This is just one part of our daily regime. Just like exercise and putting good nutritious foods into my body Kombucha it’s just one piece of the pie. We don’t like to preach about possible health benefits, but we feel great when I drink it. We are both totally hooked and don’t go a day without some. We recommend starting with a four ounce serving and increasing, as desired, once your body, and taste buds acclimate.

being looked into in tandem with what to do moving forward. “It’s important to also note that this is but one assessment in an overall school. The other measures that we look at



Let’s start with the basics. For those readers unfamiliar with Kombucha, what the heck is it? Michael Zonfrilli: It is a fermented probiotic tea. An ancient elixir made from introducing a culture to sweetened tea and letting it ferment. The symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast, or SCOBY, eat the sugars in the tea, producing natural carbonation and beneficial acids that give it a bright, tart flavor. Give me a nutshell history and why do you think it’s made such a resurgence of late? Michael Zonfrilli: Kombucha making is over 200 years old and originated in China and made its way to Japan and Korea, where it possibly got its name from a doctor named Kombu. I recently spoke to a woman whose mother used to make in Russia, where it turned up in the early 1900s. I first tried it on a communal farm in southern Oregon about 25 years ago, so here in the states it seems to have been nurtured, in its dormancy, by hippies. Steven Strupp: Everyone is becoming more conscious of what they put into their bodies. Drinking this every day will detoxify your body while putting good bacteria in your gut. It is a great substitute for high sugar sodas and juices. We also think Kombucha brewing is evolving and producing more enjoyable drinks. Kombucha in general takes a few tries to develop a taste for, but we are really trying to create an approachable drink that is enjoyable, and pos-

You both have stellar culinary resumes, what was the motivation behind this venture, entering a somewhat crowded market? Steven Strupp: For the past seven years I’ve has been home brewing beer and always wanted to open up my own brewery in the area. Although I’ve brewed Kombucha a few times it wasn’t until Michael approached with the idea that I gave it good thought. Compared to beer market the Kombucha industry is such an emerging market, really in its infancy with plenty of room for quality entrants like Bambucha. Love the name by the way, where did it come from? Michael Zonfrilli: Bambucha is a Hawaiian slang for “really big” and that is exactly how we want our flavors to be. We also liked how it rhymed with Kombucha. What are some of the Bambucha differentiators, what makes you different? Steven Strupp: Well, to start we have chef-crafted flavors that are more interesting and fun than most offerings on the market. Since we are both coming at it from a chef’s perspective, we are really into combining ingredients that create perfect balance of flavor. We take inspiration from the flavor

You had mentioned also developing shrub syrups for cocktails, what’s that all about? Michael Zonfrilli: Yes that will be phase two of our launch. We are actually making a probiotic vinegar by fermenting our kombucha for a very long time. We mix this with organic cane sugar and natural flavors and age it some more. The shrub syrups are amazing mixed with sparkling water or into crafty cocktails. When can we expect to see you in stores and restaurants? Steven Strupp: We are currently in Cardiff Seaside Market and having both been connected to the restaurant scene in San Diego we already have several restaurants ready for us. We are in the process of making new connections, doing tastings, and getting accounts lined up. Any restaurant or bar with a draft beer system should consider having at least one Kombucha on tap. Grocery stores that have juice bars and growler filling stations are great because we really like the sustainability of reusable bottles. Check out Bambucha Kombucha at bambuchakombucha.com.

Army vet, homeless, finding his pitch By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — Life threw an Escondido veteran a number of curveballs. And for a short time, Tim Biles’ swings and misses left the former Army infantryman homeless at one point. But thanks to Easterseals, the Illinois native and current Escondido resident is making contact and even showed his throwing skills as he threw out the first pitch at the Sept. 21 San Diego Padres game. “It definitely gave me hope,” Biles said of Easterseals. “I have to give all credit … to Russell (Levy) and Easterseals.” Upon graduating high school in 2007 in Illinois, Biles, 27, enlisted in the U.S. Army and served three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, one as a cavalry scout and the other two in the infantry. He said he loved the camaraderie, the missions and the humanitarian work done by his unit. His time overseas, meanwhile, would alter his life and lead him down a path he never thought possible. Biles’ first two tours were in Baghdad, Iraq, where his experiences found him in combat patrols, training the Iraqi Federal Police, doing border patrols, ambushes, raids and humanitarian efforts. His first tour was in 2007 and second was in 2009-10. “It was standard infantry missions,” he said. As for Afghanistan, Biles said it was more of the same as in Iraq, although the enemy was different as troops fought the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. “It was a rush, it’s addictive,” he explained. “The adrenaline is what I think I was addicted to. When you come home, you really start to miss it.” Later in the mission, however, Biles was injured for the second time after an anti-personnel landmine attack. He lost about 70 percent of the function in his left kidney, while one of his platoon mates lost a portion of his leg and

several fingers. “We just finished an engagement and were leaving,” Biles recalled. “When you’re leaving a village, that’s when they are going to try and ambush you. We were walking down a dirt road and the guy behind me stepped on a landmine.” He was soon medically discharged and then diagnosed with PTSD. He undergoes intensive weekly therapy sessions, is on a “handful” of medications, but would go back to serving in an instant if he could. Biles has difficulty trusting people, sits in the aisle seat at movies, has friends walk behind him so his paranoia doesn’t get the best of him. “It’s an everyday struggle to get used to civilian life,” he said. “There is no structure. People really don’t know their place anymore. It’s rough.” After rotating back to the U.S., Biles landed with a friend in Temecula, but soon they were evicted and Biles began living out of his car. But he was able to connect with Levy and Easterseals of Southern California, who acted quickly to get Biles back on his feet. “I think the most critical point was just finding him,” Levy said. “He said he was staying in his car. I immediately said ‘I’m com-

ing to get you.’” Levy said the 30-day point is landmark for those becoming permanently homeless. In the first 30 days, Levy explained, the situation has not become normal. But soon after, however, people begin to process it as normal and thus become residents of the street and struggle to find housing and employment. So Levy filled up Biles’ tank, bought him food and came up with a plan. The first step was to work with different organizations to find housing. Levy said housing, not employment, is the most important part of breaking the cycle. “Our director was able to make the contacts to get him (Biles) off the street and into a homeless shelter,” Levy said. “It’s very, very difficult for someone to maintain a job when you are living in a car. I helped him with his resume. He said he was doing everything wrong and just didn’t realize it.” Once the resume was finalized, the two began job searching and within days of being at the shelter, Biles landed a job. The tide began to turn as Biles soon took another job, and then moved on to become a sales associate at Hyundai of Escondido. Keeping the momentum TURN TO VETERAN ON 23

the EIR at the meeting on Oct. 19, with Supervisor Dave Roberts seconding the motion. “This truly is not only an aesthetically good idea, it’s an environmentally good idea,” Roberts said of the roundabouts. The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to certify the final EIR and documents for the project. According to a staff presentation from Chris Hanger with the Department of Public Works, the Rancho Santa Fe Association and the San Dieguito Planning Group believed the roundabouts were the best possible solution to the traffic congestion issue, as opposed to traffic lights. “Signalized intersections were not chosen as the preferred solution because there are currently no signalized intersections within the California landmark of historic Rancho Santa Fe,” Hanger said. During the meeting, two Rancho Santa Fe residents spoke out against the project. Daniel Bunn, a Ranch resident opposed the certification of the EIR, and referred to a second traffic study that contrasted the findings of the county’s draft report. “No one wants to make a very important decision, or mistake based on incomplete or erroneous information,” Bunn said. He said the software

OCT. 28, 2016

used for the county’s traffic analysis was outdated and yielded a level of service not consistent with a traffic study done with newer software. However, a county employee familiar with the traffic analysis said the county did run the data using their updated software, which showed the roundabouts project would provide a successful level of service. Sam Ursini, who also lives in the Ranch and said he’s been studying project for the past 14 years, described it as a sporting event where there are going to be winners and losers. “There are thousands of vehicles that transgress through Del Dios corridor,” he said. “Those thousands and thousands of people are not represented. What is represented is a small community in Rancho Santa Fe.” Ursini described Del Dios Highway as a major thoroughfare connecting the east to the west and said the roundabouts theory was flawed. Instead, Ursini said signals would provide a very satisfactory level of service. Three spoke in favor of the roundabouts including Kent Lemarie, Laurel Lemarie, member of the San Dieguito Planning Group and Christy Whalen, interim manager of the Rancho Santa Fe Association. The roundabouts are being constructed under the Federal Highway Administration guidelines.

Vehicle speeds would be lowered to 25 miles per hour through the roundabout transitions and crosswalks with lighted signals would be installed. Gail Getz, also with the county’s Department of Public Works, said the final landscaping plans would be developed with the help of the community’s input and then finalized by the Department of Public Works. Lighting and landscaping would be in keeping with the community’s character. Since the proposed lighting would be non-standard, the county is seeking to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Rancho Santa Fe Association and RSFCSD to fund the features. With construction estimated to be a year or more, Getz said the area would be affected by the project, including temporary, intermittent full and partial closures of the three intersections, resulting in a temporary significant impact on surrounding roadways and intersections. “This is a rural area and there is no easy way to re-route traffic during construction,” Getz said. “To minimize the temporary impact to the extent feasible, a formal traffic control and detour plan would be implemented with signage, flagging, noticing and access.” A temporary detour road at the El Montevideo intersection was an option for further traffic mitiga-

tion during construction, but ultimately considered unfeasible, as it would have resulted in additional landscaping and use of private property. The initial traffic congestion-easing project began back in 2002. In 2004, the Rancho Santa Fe Association and the county co-funded a roundabout feasibility study. An EIR on the project, including other traffic options was suggested in 2007, according to the county’s report. In December of 2012, a draft EIR was recirculated. The project went through another set of delays in 2013-14. But in November of last year, the Rancho Santa Fe Association submitted a letter to the county requesting that roundabouts be the solution. The draft EIR was updated and a final report was filed later in 2015-16. According to Bell, the certification of the EIR would remain valid for the project studied in the report. “However, if substantial changes to either the project or the circumstances occur, which result in new significant effects or a substantial increase in the severity, then those issues would need to be addressed with either an addendum to the EIR or a supplemental EIR. Only the new issues would need to be addressed as the final EIR would still be valid for any other issues.”
