For Lienau, charity’s on front burner

High marks for Rowe bell schedule

Middle schoolers say tutorial period helps

RANCHO SANTA FE — At her Tuscan-inspired Rancho Santa Fe estate, Holli Lienau places the finishing touches on her freshly baked sage and rosemary biscotti. She’s not alone. With her on this summer afternoon is a camera crew filming her YouTube cooking show, “Holli’s Easy Breezy Kitchen.” Lienau’s culinary inspiration has branched out to her philanthropic organization, “Holli”day … Anyday!, founded by Lienau in 2018. And her message is unequivocal. Her organization is designed to support both San Diego and Southern California nonprofits that help breast cancer patients, animals and more through playing and paying it forward with food, fun, and friends. Lienau gifts select nonprofits with live and silent auction items relating to culinary innovation and curating experiences. These “experiences” vary from harvesting wine grapes at her estate followed by a homemade pizza party, to a guided tequila tasting event championed by award-winning Nobleza Azul Tequila and Baja California Wine Tasting to name a few. Every event is a backdrop for a special filming of “Holli’s Easy Breezy Kitchen.” Lienau admits that it was her friend Janet Lawless Christ who encouraged her to move forward

RANCHO SANTA FE — At a special meeting of the Rancho Santa Fe School District board on Aug. 17, it was announced the 20172018 tutorial period will carry on for middle school students in the new school year. R. Roger Rowe Principal Garrett Corduan shared student survey results highlighting how 96 percent of students agreed the tutorial period helped with their homework while 77 percent of students in seventh and eighth grade thought the period helped them be more successful in school. Corduan provided a little history on the middle school bell schedule topic explaining how the decision to change it for the 20172018 was to improve the student experience. When Corduan became the middle school principal in 2013, he noticed some consistent themes that came up in his first few years. “Students had too much homework, there was a limited amount of time to connect with teachers outside of the classroom, and students had a high use of tutors outside of the school,” he said. Corduan wanted to figure out a way to solve those issues. “For me, it was changing the bell schedule,” he said. Corduan went on to say

RANCHO SANTA FE — Summer Murphy’s life was like a dream. Imagine a real life Holly Golightly — Audrey Hepburn’s character in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” — only more exciting. Born to a religious family in Escondido, Murphy ran away from home when she was 16 years old. She married and divorced four very wealthy husbands and lived with them all over the

Ranch perfect for Crosby, others in Hollywood seeking a getaway By Adam Bradley

RANCHO SANTA FE — Mention Bing Crosby and most people instantly think of him crooning a heartfelt rendition of “White Christmas” or bantering with Bob Hope in comedic quips. But besides being a major Hollywood star and box office draw in the 1930s through the 1960s and beyond, Crosby, was also a big horseman and breeder. Born Harry Ellis Crosby Jr., in Tacoma, Washington, in 1937, he later co-founded the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and helped build the Del Mar Racetrack. He also made 58 motion pictures, broadcast many radio shows and sold more than 300 million records, according to an article in the LA Times at the time of his death. Crosby, also an avid golfer and star of such films as “High Society,” with Grace Kelly, “Going My Way” and the “Road” movies with Hope, took up residence in Rancho Santa Fe in the 1930s. He wasn’t alone as other top celebrities of the time like Corinne Griffith, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and Mary Pickford, and then later, Victor Mature of “Samson and Delilah” fame, as well as Robert Young of “Father Knows Best,” became residents of Rancho Santa Fe. According to an article written by a past archives chairwoman for the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society, Fran Foley: “ … Crosby organized the tournament later known as the National Pro-Am in Pebble Beach. Initially, the event was conceived as a more casual affair, a “clambake,” as he called it. The first of these clambakes was held at Crosby’s local club in Rancho Santa Fe in 1937. (Sam Snead won the tournament and pocketed a princely $700 for the victory)” Foley also wrote: “Rancho Santa Fe has been a popular place for the rich and famous to live since the '30s. Whether the

reasons lie in the area's remote-ness, its beauty and charm or its million-dollar mansions, Rancho Santa Fe has always been an attraction for Hollywood stars and corporate executives. “Rancho Santa Fe attracts celebrities because it is known that in the Ranch, they will be able to lead a normal life. In the 30s, 40s, and 50s, movie stars would flock to this area because they wanted to get away from Hollywood.” In terms of living in the Ranch, Crosby bought the 100-acre property known as Osuna Adobe No. 2, the former home of Juan Maria Osuna, owner of the original Rancho San Dieguito land grant, in 1932. The sprawling ranch at one time was considered a historical landmark. Crosby and his predecessors made changes to the property with the help of popular architect of the time, Lilian Rice, including the Crosby family main residence. Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society’s Sharon Alix said Crosby’s first wife Dixie Lee Crosby (19111952), lived at the ranch. She was an actress, danc-

er and singer, who died of ovarian cancer on Nov. 1, 1952, at the age of 41, according to Google. She was married to Bing from 1930-1952. They had four sons: Gary, twins Phillip and Dennis, and Lindsay, according to Wikipedia. “Dixie raised the children there because it was shortly after the Lindbergh baby abduction; she had a 1-year old baby and feared for their safety in Los Angeles as a high-profile family,” Alix said. “Bing traveled a lot, so he wasn’t there full time, but he did spend time there and did a lot of work to the house and property, and to the development of the Del Mar Race track.” Speaking of horses, Crosby bred, raised, and even raced horses on the property. The home had wonderful stables, large grass fields where the horses could wander and there was a practice track right on the property, Alix said. “Many Hollywood stars would come to Rancho Santa Fe because it was far away from Hollywood and a perfect getaway for them. There were very wide-open spaces here and Crosby utilized all of his property to its full advantage and watched as the race track in Del Mar grew in popularity.” The former Crosby estate is still located off Via de la Valle across from the Morgan Run Golf Club and Resort, in the Whispering Palms section of the Ranch, Alix said. “There still are a lot of trees, large lawn areas and it has lush private gardens,” Alix said. “There is no public access onto the property, and if you drive by, you wouldn’t know there is a home there.” Ultimately, Crosby sold the home in 1945; and today it is privately owned by another family. Crosby died on Oct. 14, 1977; he suffered a heart attack after playing 18 holes on a course near Madrid. He was 73 years old.

DEL MAR — For the regulars and pastry-lovers who know Darshan Bakery & Café in Encinitas, the cafe’s new sister location — Patisserie Del Mar — offers the same treats, but a much different flavor. “It’s so French!” said Del Mar resident Mary Mielke, who has visited the patisserie almost every day with her husband, Jeffrey, since it opened in July. The couple’s goal is to try everything in the bake case — which includes a colorful assortment of eclairs, French macarons, quiche and croissants. Owners Tim and Heidi Brock opened up Darshan Bakery & Café more than 10 years ago, shortly after moving to the Encinitas area. Although Brock had been thinking about opening a second location for some time, the cogs started moving a year ago when he spotted a “for rent,” sign on Camino Del Mar, in the space formerly occupied by Brick 15. “One thing led to another,” he said. Brock said the Patisserie fills a niche in Old Del Mar, where Starbucks is the only other café. He hopes to bring a more “comforting” and “human-scale” quality to the area, a quiet corridor on the southern cusp of Del Mar. “With the development next door … and city hall across the street, I think the center of gravity will be shifting slightly and bringing a lot more activity, foot traffic and general awareness to the edge of town,” he said. City Council members recently approved a ballot measure for the adoption of a specific plan for a complex just next door, which would include office, retail and restaurant space. Located at 915 Camino Del Mar, the patisserie is a 1,300-square-foot space — almost twice the size of Darshan. An assortment of tables is spread across the well-lit interior, and the elevated, dog-friendly patio outside boasts an ocean view. A large portion of the kitchen is bounded by a glass partition, so café-goers can watch as the chefs prepare the day’s pastries. The Brocks decided to move all preparation and production for both shops to Del Mar. However, the ovens are still on at Darshan — all pastries served at the longstanding café will con-

tinue to be baked in house. The Encinitas location has attracted a number of loyal regulars, some of whom attended the Del Mar location’s Sept. 5 Grand Opening. Elizabeth Goodman, who has lived in the Encinitas/Cardiff area since 1992, said she and her husband have frequented Darshan since its early days. Goodman is a fan of the homemade chai, which she said is some of the best she has ever tasted. For Goodman, what makes Darshan special is “the heart space.” “The love, the connection and the heart,” she said. “That’s what Tim and Heidi have created for the community.” Craig Bell, another Darshan regular, said the two locations are “totally different.” “Darshan is more homey, and (Patisserie) is more upscale,” Bell said. “More Del Mar.” But across both locations is an emphasis on craftsmanship and fresh ingredients, said Brock. “We’re very artisan,” he said. “Everything is baked fresh every day.” On the morning of the grand opening, chefs prepared puff pastry and chai in the spacious prep area. Chef Consultant Jean-Ma-

rie Guichard, who has worked with the Brocks for more than two years, plates various pastry samples for attendees. “I was born in a pastry shop!” said Guichard, a lively fifth-generation patissier from France. Guichard — whose personal specialty is chocolate artwork — particularly appreciates the kitchen’s focus on “good ingredients.” “That’s so rare to see today,” he said. Brock, who spends most of his time running production in the kitchen, anticipates that the kitchen will start producing pastries for outside entities as well, such as hotels and coffee shops. In fact, he calls it an “inevitability.” But for now, the kitchen is focusing on delivering French pastries and traditional coffee beverages, as well as Indian-inspired drinks — such as the Bombay Latte. They also serve sandwiches, such as a salmon and dill cream cheese sandwich on homemade focaccia bread. As the Brocks find their footing in Del Mar, they continue to aim for a high level of quality, and creating a comfortable space for locals. “We really wanted to do something nice and beautiful and wholesome for people,” Brock said.

SANDAG gets perfect score on FTA review



with this venture. “All of this really came together because I was going to ask Holli to donate a pizza party for an event that I was chairing, and then that’s when the light went on,” Lawless Christ said. While there are plenty of cooking shows on the airwaves and in cyberspace, Lawless Christ said she instinctively knew that her friend could create something with heart and compassion. Lienau was receptive to the idea. “We were both thinking of how to create a way to connect my love of cooking and entertaining along with the charities we support. We’ve already done various things at my house like having a Super Bowl party and asking people to bring a donation for a specific charity,” said Lienau, adding that “Holli”day…Anyday! was the natural next step.” Lienau went on to say how her husband and friends wanted her to start a cooking show. While Lienau liked the idea, her inner voice told her that her cooking show needed more — there had to be a purpose behind it. “I could just write a check to a charity but ‘Holli’day…Anyday! offers a way to be more connected and hopefully encourage people to play and pay it forward in their own way,” she said. A handful of the nonprofits which “Holli”day…

REGION — The San Diego Association of Governments on Sept. 7 announced it received a perfect score on its triennial review by the Federal Transit Administration. Congress mandated the FTA perform triennial reviews in 1982 as a method of “examining grantee performance and adherence to current FTA requirements and policies.” The FTA found no shortcomings with SANDAG’s management of federal funds, its ADA compliance and its Title VI compliance, among other categories. “We are very proud to receive a perfect score from the FTA in the triennial review,” said SANDAG Board Chair and Del Mar City Councilman Terry Sinnott. “This shows that SANDAG is living up to our high standards of excellence and that our continued effort and commitment to integrity and reliability are paying off.” SANDAG establishes transit fare policy in the San Diego region and manages grants for the county’s various transit systems. Last month, the FTA gave San Diego’s Metropolitan Transit System a perfect score on its triennial review.

Anyday! supports include Southern California Bulldog Rescue, Shelter to Soldier, Pound Wishes, Breast Cancer Angels, FACE Foundation, Smart Farms and Bali Rescue Dog Squad. Lienau is also quick to point out that her cooking segments are built around “easy breezy” recipes with must-have cooking tips. Lienau’s charitable mission is to reach out and

increase awareness and funds for the charities that people care about all year round. Her organization is also hosting upcoming events in the Ranch such as Pups in the Park to benefit Southern California Bulldog Rescue on Sept. 29 and Paws for a Cause on Oct. 18 at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe to support Breast Cancer Angels. According to Law-

Lawless Christ said that “Holli”day…Anyday! is so natural, organic and necessary in these times where people need some uplifting in one way or another. “’Holli’day…Anyday!


will grow beyond what we see today — I think there’s a big future,” Lawless Christ said. “And I think that everybody who’s touched by it will start following ‘Holli’day…Anyday! and they’ll be better people for doing it.” For more information on “Holli”day…Anyday!, recipes, events and more, visit www.www.hollidayanyday.com.

2 years of progress on water issues By Mark Muir

When I started my term as Board Chair of the San Diego County Water Authority in October 2016, California was mired in drought but the San Diego region had sufficient supplies regardless of the weather. Thankfully, just a few months later, epic rain and snow significantly improved water supply conditions statewide, but not before validating our longterm strategy to develop a drought-resilient portfolio of water resources that protect the region during dry times. In fact, we had enough water to store 100,000 acre-feet of water for the future — a testament to regional foresight, coordination, hard work and investments by ratepayers. Being able to assure residents and businesses that we had sufficient supplies to sustain our economy and quality of life was the biggest accomplishment of my two-year term as chair, which comes to an end on Sept. 30. Several other highlights come to mind: • We marked the first and second anniversaries of the Claude “Bud” Lewis Carlsbad Desalination Plant, the nation’s largest seawater desalination plant. During the most recent drought, the plant helped the San Diego region pass the state’s stringent

Ice Cube, but no gun shows? The Del Mar Fairgrounds board of directors permitted a rap concert by an artist with a history of glorifying violence, drug dealing, gang culture and degrading women. Guess what happened? Sure enough, violence breaks out with a gun. Yet,

water supply stress test, and in 2017 it was named the Membrane Facility of the Year by the American Membrane Technology Association and the American Water Works Association. • Also in 2017, the Water Authority was recognized by the nation’s largest statewide coalition of water agencies for innovation and excellence in water resources management with its addition of supplies from the Carlsbad Desalination Project. The 2017 Clair A. Hill Water Agency Award for Excellence was presented at the Association of California Water Agencies’ Spring Conference in Monterey. • Our $1.5 billion Emergency & Carryover Storage Project, built to protect the region from droughts and catastrophic disruptions to imported water supplies, was awarded the engineering industry’s most prestigious global honor in 2017 — the Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers. • The Water Authority secured several significant victories in lawsuits against the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. One key ruling by the state Court of Appeal was that the Water Authority is entitled to approximately 100,000 acre-feet more water annually from MWD than MWD had calculated under its water rights *** the board is entertaining the idea, based on so-called moral grounds, of discontinuing the gun shows attended by thousands of law-abiding San Diegan families who learn gun safety. The board wants to close down family-oriented events, but then they allow Ice Cube concerts. Their hypocrisy is obvious: The fairgrounds board has lost all moral authority.

formula. Another big win was the determination that MWD had illegally overcharged San Diego ratepayers tens of millions of dollars a year. In addition, the court ruled that MWD breached its contract with the Water Authority, which required MWD to set legal rates. • We launched a signature outreach and education program called Brought to You by Water to remind us all that everything we love about San Diego — from its thriving economy to our unmatched quality of life — is fueled by safe and reliable water supplies from the Water Authority and its 24 member agencies. I’m also delighted to report that in June, the Water Authority’s Board of Directors approved some of the smallest rate increases in the past 15 years thanks, in part, to our successful litigation against MWD. New board leaders will take the helm in October, and I have every confidence they will serve as faithful stewards of this vital regional agency. Just like I did two years ago, they will build upon the contributions and accomplishments of so many directors, staff members and stakeholders who continue to make the Water Authority our region’s trusted water leader. Mark Muir chairs the Board of the San Diego County Water Authority We call on the board to realign their priorities with the rule of law and support events that promote safe, legal, responsible activities for families to enjoy, such as the annual county fair and Crossroads of the West gun shows.

t’s almost fall, and college students are back on many campuses around California, with the rest due to return soon. College football is already going strong. One question many would rather not confront awaits many of the new and returning students: How much outright anti-Semitism will face the significant Jewish cohort on many major California campuses? Despite the fact that just over a year ago, the University of California’s Board of Regents adopted what it considered a strict policy of policing anti-Semitism, there were still plenty of episodes around California last spring and fall, from demonstrations at San Francisco State University to daubed swastikas at UC Davis and vandalism on the grounds of several other once-bucolic schools. One thing has now been established, thanks to a new study from a group that carefully tracks anti-Jewish activity on campuses across America: The more radically anti-Israel faculty members a school employs, the more openly anti-Semitic activity that college or university will see. The privately-funded AMCHA (Hebrew for “Our People”) Initiative concluded in its annual report on campus anti-Semitism that “Israel-related anti-Semitic incidents were considerably more likely to contribute to a hostile environment for Jewish students than incidents involving classic anti-Semitism.” In short, even though some pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel demonstrations purport not to be purely anti-Jewish, that’s how Jewish students feel they are treated by participants. This extends from demonstrators trying to shut down speeches by Israeli representatives to graffiti

california focus thomas d. elias on campus buildings and walls and everything in between. Added the study, “Anti-Israel campus activities are no longer intent on harming Israel, but increasingly they are intent on harming pro-Israel members of the campus community.” That seeming distinction without a real difference played out most vocally during the last academic year at San Francisco State University, home to the native Palestinian Prof. Rabab Abdulhadi, who has said that Zionists are not welcome on her campus. She used the Facebook account of a university department to make similar comments, which some students believed at the time led to disruption of a speech by the two-term Jewish mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat, who some Israelis project as a possible future prime minister of that country. Abdulhadi’s behavior prompted SF State President Leslie Wong to visit the school’s prime Jewish organization, Hillel, and declare that “Zionists are welcome on our campus.” He was trying to address charges that Jewish students on his campus often feel intimidated. But the AMCHA study suggests that as long as professors like Abdulhadi remain active there, Jewish students will never feel completely accepted. Meanwhile, on-campus anti-Semitism went to a new level over the summer at Stanford University, about 25 miles down the Interstate 280 freeway from SF State, where 20-year-old junior Hamzeh Daoud, a

student housing resident assistant, threatened on his Facebook account that “I’m gonna physically fight Zionists on campus...” Later, after the university declared that “Threats of physical violence have absolutely no place in the Stanford community,” Daoud resigned his post, while remaining a student. Hours after the university issued its statement, Daoud also amended his Facebook post to say he would fight pro-Israel students “intellectually,” not physically. “I realize intellectually beating zionists (sic) is the only way to go. Physical fighting is never an answer to proving people wrong.” Daoud, a Jordanian citizen, considers himself a Palestinian refugee, although he is more than two generations removed from any ancestors who may once have lived in what is now Israel. But it’s a safe bet Jewish students at Stanford are savvy enough to be suspicious of any softening phrases by a fellow student who may have been threatened privately with suspension or expulsion. In frequency of anti-Semitic incidents, Stanford has long ranked behind other major campuses like UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, UC Davis and UCLA, making the fact of a violent threat there a sign that not only has overall campus anti-Semitism not abated since the UC Regents issued their policy, but it may have become even more virulent. That’s one reason the atmosphere will be at least as fraught as ever for Jewish students trying to concentrate on academics this fall, while they also know they’ve been threatened by Palestinian activists in some places. tdelias@aol.com

Race for seat in 49th District heats up By Claudia Piepenburg

ATTORNEY SHOSHANNAH HART speaks at the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center on the essentials of estate planning documents. Photo by Christina Macone-Greene

Senior Center hosts estate planning talk By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Associate attorney Shoshannah Hart from the Estate Planning & Legacy Law Center in Carlsbad stopped by the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center on Aug. 24 to discuss the essentials of estate planning documents. According to Hart, it’s all about mindful planning that should be revisited on an annual basis. Hart said the best advice is to review those documents and/or have the attorney who drafted the trust to review them periodically, too. If the original attorney is no longer available, it’s advisable to connect with a new lawyer. “Another important thing is to make sure that you’re comfortable while you’re alive,” she said. “The Advance Health Care Directive and HIPPA Authorization are very important because they nominate agents who can make your medical decisions for you while you’re living, but no longer have the capacity to make those decisions on your own. Besides the wealth and passing that on, we just want to make sure you’re comfortable while you’re alive and that someone you trust is making decisions for you.” Hart said it’s very common to overlook updating these documents. “Generally, people execute their trust and their estate plan, and they think that it’s done, but it’s a living document,” she said. “It’s called a Revocable Living Trust, it lives and changes with you and needs to be changed as your life changes.” Hart went on to say health care directives have authorizations and powers of attorneys. The very nature of these documents is the reason attorneys advise people on updating them more frequently, she said. Hart pointed out that these health care directives are only as good as the gatekeeper accepting them. “If a nurse, hospital, or a bank, for instance, does not want to accept the document because it’s too old, and there might be a newer one out there, there’s noth-

ing you can do at that time because the person is already incapacitated,” Hart explained. “So just make sure, at minimum, that the incapacity documents are updated with fresh dates.” While some may tend to procrastinate in reviewing or updating estate planning documents and health care directives, Hart said people do end up feeling better when it’s done. “It’s like spring cleaning or changing the batteries in your smoke alarm,” she said. “Make sure it’s done once a year — you don’t have to update it once a year but at least look at your estate plan and review it on your own annually. If you think something has changed, contact your attorney.” For every client, Hart said, her mission is to educate. It’s empowering clients by having them leave her office knowing more than they did when they walked in. It’s also an opportunity for Hart to dissolves any myths. Hart admits that one of the biggest myths is that a Revocable Living Trust will protect someone’s assets from creditors while they are alive. “So, by putting your home into trust while you’re alive, if someone sues you, your assets are still subject to creditors unless you have some other way of solving that issue — but the trust itself is not going to solve that,” she said. From all the areas of law Hart could have ventured into, she was intrigued with estate planning. In fact, she worked for Legal Services for Seniors in Monterey County during her very first job in law school. This nonprofit and taught Hart the foundations of estate planning. “A lot of what we did there was complimentary estate planning documents like wills and health care directives,” she said. “When clients came in, they were very upset and confused, but when they left, they were happy. I could hear an audible exhale of their relief once these documents were done — it just made me feel good that I was truly helping my clients.”

REGION — The dog days of summer may be over, but the campaign to win Darrell Issa’s seat in the 49th Congressional District is heating up. On Aug. 29 Democratic candidate Mike Levin posted a nearly nine-minute documentary on his website accusing his opponent, Republican Diane Harkey, of running a so-called Ponzi scheme that bilked senior investors out of their life savings. The same day, the Harkey campaign began running a TV ad titled “Predatory” that accused Levin, an attorney, of representing the now-defunct mortgage lender Countrywide Financial, in filing eviction proceedings against homeowners during the 2007-2008 financial crisis. Both campaigns stand by the claims made in the videos maligning their opponent and, not surprisingly, dispute the veracity of the charges being made against their respective candidate. The Levin video claims that Harkey spent $1.5 million funding her own campaign using money that was supposed to be invested in construction projects through Point Center Financial Inc., a now-defunct real estate lending company owned by her husband. Harkey was listed as secretary and her husband, Dan Harkey, as president. In early 2009, the Securities and Exchange Commission opened an investigation into Point Center Financial Inc. and in 2013 a judgment of $12.5 million was filed against the company for breach of fiduciary responsibility. The judgment included 11 charges of elder abuse. (Several of those seniors who lost money investing with Point Center are featured in the video.) Point Center Financial Inc. filed for bankruptcy that same year. Parke Skelton, campaign consultant for the Levin campaign, said: “As you saw in the video, she admitted at one point that she had benefited from the company. She was basically using profits from a Ponzi scheme to further her political career.” Near the end of the documentary, viewers are shown the Harkeys’ home in a gated community in Orange Country. Skelton said: “Right before the company collapsed she put the house in her name, so they wouldn’t

lose it. Skelton also said that Diane Harkey and husband Dan are no longer married. “They got divorced in 2014, to protect the assets. She says that they separated in 2008 but as far as we know they’re still living in the same house. He voted at that address in the June primary. It’s incredibly suspicious.” In response to the allegations in the video and Skelton’s comments, Bryan Shroyer, Harkey’s campaign spokesman, described Levin’s video as a “fabrication” and later said: “The video is false, and it should be taken down.” He said that what the video doesn’t show is that the plaintiffs did not prevail in the case against her, that it was her husband who was found guilty. When asked about the divorce, Shroyer said: “Regarding the additional accusations, sometime after their divorce, Diane and Dan made the decision to reside together in order to better take care of a close relative who is in need of constant care.” Although the video quotes an article from the March 17, 2009, Orange County Register in which Harkey said that her political spending included money from her husband’s earnings, Shroyer dismissed the comment. “Diane had a 30-year career in business and made her own money.” He denied a charge made in the video that at one point during the lawsuit Harkey had appealed to the state treasurer to have her salary reduced in order to plead financial hardship, saying: “Absolutely not.” Shroyer said that by posting the documentary about Harkey, Levin was creating a distraction. “It’s clear that Levin doesn’t want to talk about

the issues because he’s out of step with voters in the district on issues like taxes, health care and immigration.” Shroyer brought up to The Coast News the ad the Harkey campaign had created, accusing Levin of being involved in evicting homeowners. He said: “Levin’s defense is pretty weak. On Oct. 6, 2008, Jerry Brown announced an $8.7 billion predatory lending settlement with Countrywide. Ten days later, Levin represented Countrywide for the first time, knowing full well what kind of practices they had been engaged in.” Skelton responded: “We answered this in the primary.” [Editor’s note: Paul Kerr, one of Levin’s Democratic challengers in the June primary, ran on a platform that also accused Levin of representing Countrywide against homeowners.] Skelton explained that over a decade ago Levin was employed at a law firm called Bryan Cave doing environmental compliance work. Bryan Cave also represented Bank of America, which bought Countrywide in 2007. “When the mortgage market collapsed in 2008, an unscrupulous lawyer from L.A., named Mitchell Roth, recruited over 2,000 desperate homeowners to file frivolous lawsuits against several lenders that included Countrywide. The suits claimed, without merit, that the mortgages weren’t valid.” Skelton went on to explain that despite the fact that Roth collected monthly retainers from the clients but did nothing to advance the suits, they still had to be answered. “Nearly every lawyer at Bryan Cave was assigned to file answers to some of them —including Mike. They were not foreclosure proceedings, and after the suits were dismissed, the owners who had brought the actions were referred to loan modification to help them stay in their homes.” The Harkey documentary has not been taken down and the Levin ad is still running on local TV stations. The last poll taken over a four-day period at the end of June shows Levin ahead of Harkey 44 percent to 41 percent, with a margin of error of +/-4.6 percent. Levin’s website is: mikelevin.org.

Remember Me Thursday celebrates hero dog Yeti RANCHO SANTA FE — With the kick-off of September, Helen Woodward Animal Center is deep into preparation to unite with animal lovers worldwide for the sixth annual Remember Me Thursday. This year a special name will be added to the group of celebrities, despite being relatively unknown. Helen Woodward is proud to announce the very first honoree in a new Remember Me Thursday tradition, the 2018 Rescue Pet Hero, Yeti, who saved his young human brother. Yeti is a pit bull blend, who started his adoption journey in late 2016. After two unsuccessful adoptions, he was returned to the shelter with a leg injury that required surgery. “A dog with this type of history, and new medical challenges, is often labeled ‘unadoptable’ by shelters around the world,” said Center Operations Director Jennifer Shorey. “It is a credit to the Verde Valley shelter that they saw his amazing potential and tried again and again.” Yeti patiently waited

at the Verde Valley Humane Society for nearly 80 days until the Lennox family saw in him what many others did not. The family had been looking to add a new four-legged

family member and knew they wanted a rescue dog. Bella Lennox, Yeti’s human mom, confessed that she hadn’t planned on taking home such a large dog but Yeti’s goofy and outgoing personality won over the family, including his new 6-year-old human brother, Fallon. Not long after adopting Yeti, the family headed to the Verde River for a picnic. Being so early in the season the water was too cold for swimming and young Fallon was playing on the rocks. But in a frightening twist of fate, Fallon slipped and fell into the water and was swept downstream. Yeti jumped into action and went in after Fallon, working to save him. In a panic, the adults recognized what was happening and rushed down the river yelling for Fallon to grab hold of Yeti and accept his help. A family member was able to pull Fallon from the river once Yeti pushed him back up to the rocks. The Lennox family, who had wanted to rescue a dog, say they are now in

awe of how selflessly that very same dog was there to rescue Fallon. Yeti’s story serves as a fitting reminder of the Remember Me Thursday campaign. Yeti will be celebrated at a candle-lighting ceremony from 5:45 to 7 p.m. Sept. 27 in Balboa Park near Nate’s Point Dog Park at 6th Avenue, between El Prado & Juniper. The public is invited.

Bar in Encinitas. But variations in her story to different media outlets and a series of restraining orders filed against Burgan in the past that accused her of filing false reports raised doubts about the veracity of her claims. The Sheriff’s Department investigated and disproved the claims after reviewing video surveillance inside and outside of the bar and interviewing several witnesses.

Records show that charges were filed against Burgan June 14, and she was arraigned on July 3 and charged with a single misdemeanor count of filing a false report, which carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. The criminal complaint alleges that Burgan, on or about and between May 20 and May 23, “did unlawfully report to a peace officer that a misdemeanor had been com-

Nonprofits’ mission is to educate community on risks of teen vaping By Claudia Piepenburg

REGION — If you’re a parent of a pre-teen or teenager, your child might be juuling. Juuling is the latest iteration of e-cigarettes (electronic cigarettes). There’s no lighting-up with an e-cigarette — just press a button and inhale the vapor. The modern e-cigarette was invented by a Chinese pharmacist in 2003, and first sold in the United States in 2006. In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control stated that 2 million U.S. middleand high-school students had used e-cigarettes within 30 days of the survey. And vaping technology has come a loong way since its inception. Initially, e-cigarettes looked similar to flip-type cell phones, but with the introduction of JUUL (hence the term “juuling”) in 2015, the devices took on a whole new look. Now, vaping devices can fit into the palm of one’s hand without being seen. JUUL devices look very much like a flash drive with a USB connection that can be recharged by plugging into a computer. The device holds little pods that come in flavors such as mango, mint and cucumber. Each pod contains nicotine levels equal to a pack of cigarettes. “Teens are often smoking one to three pods a day,” said Haley Guiffrida, program coordinator with Vista Community Clinic. Through a grant that initially was to provide education on the dangers of secondhand smoke, Guiffrida has given 40 presentations since January to schools, police departments and self-regulatory organizations, explaining the dangers of vaping, particularly JUUL devices. “JUUL is one of the most popular vaping devices with youth,” Guiffrida said. “The pods contain one of the highest percentages of nicotine on the market.” According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 66 percent of teens think that vaping products contain just flavoring. In her conversations with teenagers,


T he R ancho S anta F e News

UNDERAGE VAPING has become a growing concern for parents and health advocates. Courtesy photo

Guiffrida has found that to be true. “They’re always surprised when we tell them how much nicotine is in one pod,” she said. “For most of them, this is the first nicotine product they’ve ever used, and they use it because they don’t think it contains any nicotine at all.” Although Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law in 2016 raising the age to purchase cigarettes and e-cigarettes to 21, Guiffrida said that many retail stores don’t realize that devices like JUUL contain nicotine. “It’s a matter of educating everyone,” she said. Teenagers can purchase vaping devices, JUUL in particular, through social media platforms such as Snapchat and Instagram. Hashtags like #doit4juul and #juulnation are used to advertise the product. “They’re also buying JUUL online and from friends and family,” Guiffrida said. In a statement posted to the JUUL website, the company said it does not support underage vaping and welcomes continued scientific research into possible health risks associated with vaping. “We fully support FDA’s efforts to curb underage use of tobacco products, and we believe restricting access to flavors will negatively impact current adult smokers in their journey to switch from combustible cigarettes. Appropriate flavors help adult smokers who do not want to be reminded of the tobacco-taste of a cigarette. We encourage FDA to allow for further scientific exploration on the role flavors play in helping adult smokers transition away from combustible cigarettes,” the statement reads. “As JUUL Labs works to support adult smokers in their efforts to switch, we also remain steadfast in our commitment to preventing underage use of vapor products. Both goals can be achieved through reasonable regulation to restrict advertising and naming of flavors such as cotton candy and gummy bear that are directed at children. We look

forward to continuing to engage with FDA, policymakers, and community leaders on helping to reduce cigarette use while protecting young people.” Barbara Gordon, a prevention specialist with the San Dieguito Alliance, works with Guiffrida on education and prevention programs, as does Rosalina Herrera, youth development program assistant with the San Diego County Office of Education. Both women share Guiffrida’s concerns that neither kids nor their parents understand the potential risks of vaping. “It’s all about education,” Gordon said. “We’ll ask kids, do you smoke and they’ll say ‘no’ and then we’ll ask them if they vape and they say ‘yes.’” Gordon said there’s concern because teenagers become addicted so quickly. “Once they’ve started vaping, they’re four times more likely to transition to regular cigarettes within a year-and-a-half,” Gordon said, adding that parents “are out of the loop. They have no idea what their kids are doing. JUUL looks like a thumb-drive, there’s no smoke and it smells sweet.” Despite the fact that JUUL’s packaging has the tagline “the alternative for adult smokers,” all three anti-vaping advocates believe that the manufacturers are clearly targeting teenagers and even pre-teens. “Why would you name a flavor ‘Fruit Loops’ if you’re marketing to adults?” Herrera asked. JUUL has attempted to partner with school districts

across the country. “They need to be watched very closely,” Gordon said. “They’re telling districts that they’ll give them $20,000 to $30,000 to develop prevention programs and promising that they’ll create a device that can’t be used on school property. People should be suspicious of their intentions.” Herrera expressed concern that the Food and Drug Administration has not yet investigated the ingredients in e-cigarettes. The FDA has postponed any legislation on the devices until 2022. “The little bit of research that has been done so far is fairly new and the products aren’t FDA regulated,” Herrera said. “So right now we don’t know exactly what is being inhaled into the body, and what it’s doing to the body.” JUUL currently has 68 percent of the market share, but it has competition from look-a-likes such as RUBI and Phix. “There’s a big market out there,” Gordon said. “Companies will be coming out with new products in the future. We have to keep educating the public.” Two lawsuits have recently been filed in California against JUUL. In one case, a plaintiff said that he is now addicted to JUUL pods after he started vaping to stop smoking regular cigarettes. The plaintiff in the other complaint said that he had been a casual weekend smoker and now uses JUUL several times a day. The Massachusetts attorney general has also filed a suit against the company.

All aboard the birthday express! small talk jean gillette


uperwoman has nothing on me. I now possess the secret of driving a 15-person van — just do everything very, very slowly. I am feeling seriously empowered, however, after spending yesterday driving that van from Carlsbad to La Costa to San Marcos to Carlsbad and finally, to Encinitas, as the designated driver for my son’s 30th birthday brewery tour. It was such a treat and a whole lot of fun. I was seriously flattered when my boychild asked me to be their DD. I felt like the coolest mom ever. These are kids I watched grow up — some since kindergarten, some since sixth grade, some from high school. They made me laugh constantly then, and are still adorable and hilarious, as successful young men and women. They also still call me Mrs. G. I love that, too. But a 15-passenger van? Oh. Wow. I was mildly terrified. I have actual nightmares about suddenly driving a motor home through a narrow street, and my driving skills have never been stellar. Heck. I have been driving a tiny, low-slung Prius for the past decade. Suddenly I was high and wide, with a strange dashboard. But I “screwed my courage to the sticking place” and by darn, it worked. There were

cheers and applause every time I parked or backed up, which was better than a gold medal. Being able to just drive and eavesdrop on the conversations behind me was icing on the cake. They shifted seats at each stop, so I pretty much got caught up on everyone. Meanwhile, I got to watch my son have the best 30th birthday ever. His clever wife made up “loyalty cards” that got a punch each time guests finished a glass of beer or water. After four punches, they were awarded a goofy hat, visor or headband. They wore them with pride. We laughed our way through lunch, one brewery tour, three more breweries, had pizza and finished at a classic, Encinitas dive bar. What they didn’t know what that I was absorbing their enthusiasm and youth with every breath. I think I might have shaved six months off my age. I even got some delicious “enforced leisure.” While they were inside tasting (I don’t even like beer), I kicked back in the air-conditioned van and read a good book. Perfect. They all assured me that driving them around in a van was now a permanent part of my job description, and I am more than good with that. I have a good feeling that before we are through, the van might even be headed for toddler birthday parties and family barbecues in the park.

San Dieguito Heritage Museum marks 30 years By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito Heritage Museum’s deep-pit barbecue has annually served as a community gathering and an opportunity to spotlight the venerable museum and the story of Encinitas’ rural past. From Sept. 14 to Sept. 16, the museum, known as the Heritage Ranch, will celebrate its 30th anniversary, with the deep-pit barbecue playing center stage once more on Sept. 15. The story of the openpit barbecue has its roots in the early days of Olivenhain, where farmers would celebrate the lima bean harvest with a barbecue, said Pam Walker, whose family were among the original settlers in what is now Encinitas. “The farmers would tend to grow the beans in spring and summer, because it doesn’t get too hot here, and you have a little bit of moisture from the coast,” Walker said. “So at the end of every season, when the beans dried up and were harvested, farmers would celebrate by having a barbecue.” The barbecue consisted of 10 to 12 roasts that farmers would season, wrap in foil and then place in water-soaked burlap sacks. They would then dig an open pit about 5 feet deep and 5 feet wide and fill it with firewood in the early afternoon on a Friday. By Friday evening, when the fire had died down to glowing coals, the farmers would lower then sacks of meat into the subterranean pit and cover it with a sheet of metal, lining the sides with dirt so as to trap the heat. Usually, someone would stay all night to ensure the seal on the pit stayed intact.

“It’s really technical, you have to be careful to do it right,” Walker said. The next day, Saturday around noon, the meat is taken out of the ground, and another crew would slice the meat, which Walker said always comes out “very, very delicious.” Originally held at the Olivenhain Meeting Hall, the barbecue has been held at the Heritage Museum since 1988. In addition to the barbecue, the museum will host an Americana Music Fest on Sept. 14, which will include three stages and 10 acts, in addition to vendors, artists, food trucks and Pizza Port Beer. The final day of the celebration will include the very popular children’s band Hullabaloo. Guitarist and vocalist Steve Denyes and drummer and fellow vocalist Brendan Kremer have been a staple in San Diego over the years, winning 17 national awards, positive reviews from People, Parenting, Parents, Cookie and Parent & Child Magazines and being included on three national “Top 10 Best Children’s Music” lists. Sunday’s children-focused festivities will also include the “Bubble Man” exhibit, a petting zoo, scavenger hunt and plenty of arts and crafts. Walker also said the museum will dedicate its latest exhibit, a former real estate office building that has been restored with a faux general store front. The four-room exhibit has taken the museum four years to restore and get city approvals after being donated by wellknown local resident Evelyn Weidner. Walker said that she is excited because the celebration will, once again, put Encinitas’ past on display. “You would be surprised, people will come to museum and say they know there was any history here,” Walker said. “They have no idea that it was different at one time, and in my opinion it was a really a lot better than before so many people lived here.” “We try to do our best to preserve the past, so that people won’t forget where we came from,” she said. The San Dieguito Heritage Museum is located at 450 Quail Gardens Drive and is open from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.

DEL MAR — Enrique Gonzalez and Balou’s Captain, of E2 Stables adjacent to Rancho Santa Fe, provided the only clear round to top the field of 23 competitors in this year’s $25,000 Showpark All Seasons Grand Prix. Rancho Santa Fe’s Nick Gegen on Coral Reef Baloufino took the second-place ribbon and Angel Karolyi, of Florida, on Extra Minkus placed third. Gonzalez’s speedy track and inside turns, along with the large stride and scope of Balou's Captain, led to the only clear performance, well within the 84-second time allowed. “I was able to see the first few riders go and noticed that the time allowed was a bit tight,” said Gonzalez. “My strategy was to be clear and fast, because I saw that a few other riders had already had time faults. It worked out very well.” Although Gegen was clear over the fences, he crossed the timers with a

time penalty in a time of 84.74 seconds. Karolyi did the same, crossing the timers in 84.81. “This was Balou’s Captain’s first grand prix, which is very exciting,” Gonzalez noted. “He is a nice horse, very careful and very brave.”

Unique to this event were special awards for the Winning Trainer and Groom. Gonzalez earned $4,500 in Blenheim EquiSports horse show credit as the Winning Trainer and Charlie, Balou's Captain's groom, took home the $500 Winning Groom Award.

Young horses, U25 riders, Medal Finalists and more are preparing for the final two outdoor shows of the Blenheim EquiSports season, the Blenheim Fall Tournament and the International Jumping Festival, coming to San Juan Capistrano in September.

his issue highlights the work of Expressionist Gabrielle Benot. Gabrielle Benot, currently a Del Mar resident, began sketching and drawing at an early age. Influenced by Jackson Pollock, Gerhard Richter, Joan Brown, Willem De Kooning, Jean Paul Riopelle and others she takes an interest in partial figurative representation, reducing the subject matter to simplistic elements in her works. Her works are powerful and speak to the viewer, having energy and movement. Gabrielle Benot has more recently developed a reputation as a major figure in equestrian art. Benot’s equestrian art is showcased by private parties on a global basis and she remains inspired to capture the equestrian experience in artistic form. Horse racing is one of the most ancient of all sports. Horse racing is also one of the most modern of all sports. Such duality, the division of horse racing into two opposed or contrasted aspects, reflects the timelessness of the sport itself - timelessly

A day well-spent in San Clemente hit the road e’louise ondash


usually ignore those sandwich signs plunked down on sidewalks, but this one in the heart of San Clemente’s downtown catches my eye. “Tapioca crepes — gluten free” it says with artful letters on the blackboard sign in front of Maaoca, a new eatery founded by two Brazilians who feature healthy fare from their native country. I purchase a crepe and confirm my suspicions: Tapioca crepes are definitely weird, but also quite tasty. I choose the one named for something to do with being fit, mostly because it contains ricotta cheese (also tuna and spinach). Maaoca is just one of the surprising discoveries we find during our 30 hours in San Clemente. The weather today is brag-worthy as we stroll up and down the town’s main street, Avenida del Mar. Its unique boutiques and restaurants draw us in here and there and make us grateful to be alive and in this place. We reach the west end of Avenida del Mar and are lured to the city library’s patio by a used book sale. I score big with the purchase of a Galloping Gourmet cookbook (gag gift for a friend); 1992 edition of “Flags of the World” (remember Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia?); an E.L. Doctorow novel; the inspirational “Full Tilt Living;” a hardback copy of Hillary Clinton’s “Living History;” and a pocket-sized copy of the Constitution — all for $2.50. (Funds from used-book sales support the library’s kids’ programs.) Fortunately, our car is

nearby, so we unload our treasures and decide to give the free trolley a try — the major reason I won’t wait so long to return to San Clemente. Although it’s an easy 30-minute drive from coastal North County, the town’s near-impossible parking situation in the popular downtown and beach areas, especially in the summer, was a deterrent. Now, however, three free trollies circulate continuously through downtown, the two beach areas and the recently opened Outlets at San Clemente (https:// www.outletsatsanclemente. com/). The trolley is operational from Memorial Day through the end of September, and stops at one of 16

locations every 15 minutes. You can track the trolley in real time at www.sctrolley. com. If you come to San Clemente for the day, park at one of the mall’s ample lots, hop on the trolley and forget about the stress of finding a parking space. It’s 10 minutes to the downtown area or the beach. Parking at the outlet mall also means you can explore what these 55 brickand-mortar stores and restaurants are doing to pull folks away from online shopping. For shoppers who earn a certain number of points (the program is free), there is a stylish, ultra-comfortable VIP lounge and luxurious bathrooms that feature

Former English soccer star Gary Mabbutt, 57, traveled to South Africa in July to visit his daughter, who works at Kruger National Park, but it wasn’t the exotic big game that left the most lasting impression on him. While he was sleeping, he later told the BBC, “... a rat has come into the bedroom, climbed into the bed and has decided to chew on my foot,” which Mabbutt couldn't feel because he suffers from Type 1 diabetes and has little feeling in his foot. The rat “made quite a big hole in my toe, going down to the bone, and ate underneath my foot.” Mabbutt was finally alerted to the rodent's presence when it bit his thumb and he saw his bloody foot. He flew back to the United Kingdom, where he underwent surgery and spent a week in the hospital. “All the opponents that I’ve played against,” he said, “and I finally get taken out by a rat.” [BBC, 8/27/2018]

But Keller's tail was not wagging when he returned home early the morning of Aug. 27 to find two shirtless men sitting on his couch and “an open bottle of personal lubricant and a camcorder on the end table,” Keller told Fox 21 News, “so it’s pretty self-explanatory what was

going on.” When reached for comment, the unnamed dog-sitter said her keys were stuck in her car and she “didn’t have WD-40 ... so I ended up grabbing what I had in my car, for things, that you know, I do on my personal time.” But Keller also noticed what he suspected was “bodily fluids” on the couch and said Jimbo was locked in a bedroom, sitting in his own urine and acting terrified. “It was just, just a total mess and I can only imagine what poor Jimbo saw in there,” Keller said. The sitter did admit that she shouldn’t have invited guests over, but it’s a good bet her former 4.96 out of 5 rating on Wag! is going to take a hit. [Fox 21 News, 8/29/2018]

William Parrish Jr., 32, and McKenzee Dobbs, 20, of Ocala, Florida, were just trying to better accommodate their customers when they turned the kitchen window of their mobile home into a drive-thru for heroin addicts. They also installed helpful directional signs and even had a “Closed, Please Call Again” sign alerting buyers when they'd next be open. Ocala police officers who raided the trailer on Aug. 23 were tipped off by a number of overdoses happening nearby: “We were able to determine that the product was laced with fentanyl,” police Capt. Steven Cuppy told WFTV.

Learn to live with coyotes ESCONDIDO — The Escondido Creek Conservancy presents a new exhibit, “Coexisting with Coyotes,” on display in the Interpretive Center at the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve through Dec. 31. Coyotes are an important part of our ecosystem, and coexistence with them is possible, which is the aim of this exhibit Coyotes are adaptable and found almost everywhere in San Diego County — including wildlands, suburban neighborhoods, and even in the cities. As coyotes continue to lose their traditional habitat and are driven onto human-occupied areas, conflict between humans and coyotes has increased. Between 1998 and 2015, there were 90 reported coyote attacks on humans in California. In contrast, there were 2,446 cases of foodborne illness in California during this same period — so, in effect, people are 27 times more at risk from their food than from coyotes. Nevertheless, coyotes do pose a risk to people and their pets, and public concern continues to mount. Featuring puzzles, audio, art, taxidermy, and more, this interactive exhibit provides facts about these clever animals and dispels common myths. It also outlines specific things people can do to keep their family and pets safe while still keeping these beneficial creatures wild and free. The Interpretive Center at the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve is open seven days a week, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., depending on volunteer docent availability. An updated weekly schedule of Interpretive Center hours can be found at elfinforest. olivenhain.com.

Food &Wine Wine shop marks anniversary with traditional saber ceremony taste of wine frank mangio


im and Bill, the Tobin brothers, are always seeking the road less traveled for their successful wine shop and bar in San Marcos. They cut their wine teeth in the old Long’s Drug chain in San Diego, then struck out on their own when opportunity rang, to purchase a wine operation in San Marcos eight years ago. They took North County Wine Company from an inventory of 300 bottles to 600 bottles in a short time. The only thing that’s holding them up from going to another 600 is space. Once on the floor, NCWC’s wines move out the door quickly with well-orchestrated consistent promotions and low prices. The Wine of the Week feature is always from an upscale winery with a price that’ll insure it moves quickly. With the current wines being snapped up and new wines priced to go out the door faster than they came in. At times, with new labels coming in, it appears they do have way more than 600 wines to sell. The fun

starts on Wednesdays with the Wine of the Week revealed and tasted. Recently it was a “patio pounder,” the 2016 Napa Valley Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc-Viognier blend for just $9.97. You can always get a taste before you buy at the in-house bar with an always-fresh wine system pouring plenty of choices. On the occasion of the wine shop and bar’s eighth anniversary held recently, the NCWC team kicked it off with a traditional saber ceremony, where the brothers and employee Cathryn Venettes, opened $250 French champagnes with the ceremonial swords, swiftly but carefully slicing the tops off the bottles. I told you they were one-of-a-kind! Why did they open their wines with a saber? It’s a tradition dating back to Napoleonic times and the French Revolution and it’s officially called Sabrage and considered a high honor for the ceremony of opening a bottle of sparkling wine. Here’s how it goes. At a right angle, slide a saber or similar blade down the neck of the bottle toward the cork, allowing it to hit the collar with a lot of force to snap the glass cleanly, causing the cork to shoot across the room with a pleasant sounding pop and a froth of fizz. There is a lot more to this fun event so Google

violet and prune. And there are delicious native dishes to pair with it. We found Pummarole a Capri with chopped heirloom tomatoes tossed with Mozarella di Bufala cheese, basil and extra virgin olive oil. The wine was a delightful Rosé. My favorite and one that most resembled the legendary entrees of Italy went by the challenging title of Strangulaprievete a Surriento. The ingredients included housemade Gnocchi with fresh Mozzarella cheese, Grana Padano cheese, oregano, basil and tomato sauce, all baked in the oven. Aglianico wine is recommended with this rich dish.

This Wine and Bites event will be offering exclusive wines from Amici’s reserve cellar, along with curated bites. You can expect nine great California wines for tasting.

Tickets are $49 per person and reservations can be made at the restaurant’s Open Table page or by calling (858) 847-2740. • Seasalt Restaurant in Del Mar continues its winning ways with winning wine dinners. Next one up from owner Sal Ercolano is a dinner with Cakebread Cellars, at 6 p.m. Thursday Sept. 27 and Friday Sept. 28.

10 Big Ideas to Celebrate 10 years of Innovative Regenerative Medicine This year, BOUNDLESS Regenerative Medicine celebrates 10 years of personalized, research-based healing. Over the last decade, thousands of patients have traveled in from 193 cities in 23 states and from at least 4 other countries to benefit from Dr. Bunyak’s boutique, precision treatments. BOUNDLESS has celebrated these patients’ success stories with them—the elite athlete who won her age group at the New York City Triathlon, the professional multisport athlete who won her 4th ITU world title, and the “weekend warrior” who met her goals for hiking Bhutan during her summer trip. As the practice enters its 11th year, Dr. Bunyak is excited to share 10 big ideas to help you live your best life: 1. Regenerative medicine is becoming widely accepted. As one of the first dedicated comprehensive regenerative centers in

the region, BOUNDLESS is gratified to see growing acceptance and adoption of regenerative therapies among previously skeptical orthopedic offices. No longer a fringe treatment, regenerative medicine is taking the

lead as an option for healing your orthopedic injuries and arthritic joints. 2. Advanced PRP (platelet-rich plasma) with improved stem cell and chondrocyte activity now available. A recent study

showed that a slower, gentler centrifuge protocol is best at producing platelets that excel at attracting and stimulating stem cells. BOUNDLESS is one of the only centers in the country to offer the improved process. 3. A2M therapy may protect against degeneration and arthritis progression. Alpha 2 Macroglobulin concentrate is an exciting new treatment that acts as an anti-degenerative agent—capturing destructive enzymes and working at the cellular level to stop their production before cartilage is lost. Consider this treatment if you’ve had a recent significant joint injury or arthritis progression. 4. Broadening cellular options. As knowledge about stem cells improves, BOUNDLESS remains on the leading edge to offer the fullest range of FDA-compliant injectable stem cell products—including amniotic, cord blood, acellular, and exosome preparations—as well as your own



mance novel. “I started it as a hobby when she was alive because she had a great name,” Genis said. “The reason I chose this genre is because I like history, and I also like heaving bosoms.” The novel, “Summer Murphy: A Pirate’s Woman,” is set on the waters in the 19th century. Several pirates raid a ship near Great Britain and capture the crew, which includes a royal lady and her servant, Summer Murphy. The pirates plan to ransom the Lady off to a rich planter in Ameri-

ca. To protect the royal, the two women switch places, leading the main pirate Patric O’Brien to believe that Summer, a servant, is the true Lady. Then in typical romance novel fashion, the pair fall in love, entering a relationship that involves heaving bosoms and steamy romance scenes. Genis said she loved setting this romance in a different era. “It was so much fun,” Genis said. “I knew so much history and I wanted to use it.” Genis and her husband, Dan, currently live in Rancho Santa Fe. Dan Genis was a special effects editor for the first Star Wars and

he first introduced the idea to the teachers and they were receptive. He then met with parents to discuss the potential change from a six-period schedule to an eight-period schedule and underscored the benefits of a tutorial period to parents. “It was the idea of creating a time during the day where we had the ability to work on school work but did not want it to be a study hall. I wanted students to have access to their teachers,” he said. “That was my big push and my big change — we wanted students to have access to teachers during the school day.” The school board approved the bell schedule change of the tutorial period, which occurs every other day and lasts an hour and 15 minutes where students are assigned a teacher. Corduan noted that the tutorial period was not an academic role for the teacher. Instead, it a time for students to meet their mentors. He went on to say that students had the option

to either work on the homework from class, approach a teacher if they needed help, or even collaborate with other students on a group project. Another goal was reducing the need for tutors. “A lot of our students extended their day and would visit a tutor after school when our experts are here on campus and are the actual teachers that taught them a lesson that day. So, we wanted to lessen the load,” he said. Through Corduan’s tutorial period observations, he shared the critical piece for him was student accountability during those times. “That accountability piece was tough to let go of and give students that freedom,” he said. “I got a report that there were zero issues during the tutorial time,” he said. Corduan told the school board that the tutorial period was life-changing for both the students and teachers. “Teachers were reaching out to connect,” Corduan said. “That connection piece was really nice.”

cellular transplants from bone marrow, and fat tissue augmentation, with personalized combination plans to meet your healing goals. 5. Think twice! Steroids harm cartilage without improving pain. A new study proves that steroids cause significantly more cartilage loss and arthritis progression than a saline injection control—without long term improvement in pain. Regenerative injections like PRP can offer better, longer-lasting pain control without these risks. 6. Accurate ultrasound diagnostics and precision injections are key to success. Dr. Bunyak is one of a select few local physicians to hold the registered musculoskeletal ultrasonographer designation (RMSK/ARDMS). 7. Women and men get injured and regenerate differently. Being a female athlete herself, Dr. Bunyak understands how to personalize regenerative treatments to

account for gender-specific variables such as biomechanical balance and hormonal factors. 8. Patient education is the cornerstone of excellent regenerative medicine. Dr. Bunyak is known for her independent, research based, and patient-centered evaluations and public talks. Visit her blog at feelboundless.com for upcoming talks (e.g., overcoming back pain, Carlsbad, 9/26). 9. Regenerative aesthetics emerges as a new field. For hair loss, acne scarring, and age- and sun-related skin changes, research is growing in support of PRP, cellular therapies, and combination treatments for regenerating the skin. 10. The patients who start early and who are devoted to healing with regenerative medicine get the best results. For more information, please call 760-632-1090 or visit feelboundless.com.

other major films. A.J. Genis spent many years as an interior designer, and continues to consult and design in addition to writing. Two years ago, while working on her novel, Genis was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. She temporarily lost her ability to move and speak — writing this story became her escape. “Danny would sit me in the chair and I would sit here for hours writing,” Genis said. “I would pretend that I was OK in my mind.” Genis has spent six years putting this work together. She also has plans for a second novel. Set in modern times, this one fea-

tures a college-aged Summer Murphy attempting to write the story from part one. When Genis considers how long the writing process has taken her, she reminds audiences that it’s all about perspective. “Margaret Mitchell took 10 years to write ‘Gone with the Wind,’” Genis said. “A.J. Genis took six years to write Summer Murphy. That’s nothing!” “Summer Murphy: A Pirate’s Woman” is currently being bid on multiple big-name publishers, and is expected to be picked up by one in the next couple of months. Genis anticipates a publishing date in 2019.
