Envelope Day event readied

Association announces town hall meeting By Christina Macone-Greene

By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — As the R. Roger Rowe school year is underway, the Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation is readying for Red Envelope Day. This year the event is slated for Oct. 6. RSFEF Development Director Barbara Edwards explained that the school district’s fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30. Red Envelope Day serves as a push to help jumpstart the fundraising. The fundraising goal for the 2017-2018 school year is $1 million. “We ask for contributions and pledges early in the year, because the Annual Grant from the Education Foundation helps fund small class sizes and enrichment programs for this academic year, so early payments help us track our progress to goal and make timely distributions to the district,” Edwards said. Red Envelope Day consists of contribution forms which come with red envelopes. “It is our symbol of committing to and supporting the Education Foundation financially,” she said. Edwards explained that every family received the contribution form and red envelope in their summer mailing packet. While the form can be dropped off at any time, the RSFEF created a day which centers around an annual giving campaign. “We basically decorate the school in a sea of red balloons, and we have doughnuts that we hand out to everyone at drop off,” she said. “We have a whole slew of volunteers lined up along with the balloons taking collections as parents drive up to the school.” Popcorn is served at pickup. The day culminates with a “Paint The Rowe Red” evening reception at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe on Oct. 6. The event is underwritten by the Inn. “Any Rancho Santa Fe parent who makes a contribution or pledge to be paid later in the year is eligible to attend,” she said, adding that they will update the list until 5 p.m. that day. The evening is an opportunity to have parents gather and enjoy the company of other parents who have also made contribuTURN TO RED ENVELOPE ON 12

HWAC mobilizes to rescue shelter animals after Hurricane Harvey By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FW— Animal rescue workers rallied into action following the wrath of Hurricane Harvey, which left overwhelming amounts of flood waters behind. One local organization lending a helping hand was Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe which rescued 64 animals after receiving a call from Operation Pets Alive! on Aug. 31. Four HWAC staff members, including vet techs, flew into Austin, Texas, since all flights into Houston were rerouted. Operations Pets Alive!, headquartered in Texas, raises awareness regarding the No-Kill movement. After Hurricane Harvey

lashed Houston, Operations Pets Alive! was in desperate need of help for shelter animals. “These were homeless animals, with no families when Hurricane Harvey hit,” Jessica Gercke, PR and communications director of HWAC said. “These shelters were suddenly underwater and the food was ruined. They had no electricity and their veterinary abilities were shut down.” Gercke said Montgomery County Animal Shelter utilized the Lone Star Convention Center as an emergency shelter for these orphan pets. And Operation Pets Alive! is working to turn Montgomery County into a No-Kill county. During the hurricane

ruin and chaos, people who lost their homes turned to functioning animal shelters to house their pets until they settled into a new place. Concerns mounted over the safety of shelter animals — there was a fear that shelter animals would be euthanized due to the limited kennel space. Operation Pets Alive! reached out to HWAC asking if they could take some homeless animals. HWAC couldn’t get there fast enough. “Southwest Airlines, who is an amazing friend, gave us a plane free for us to use,” Gercke said. “Their crew donated their time.” HWAC stayed for a few days helping with the shelters in the area including the Lone Star Convention Center. “Many animals were in need,” Gercke said. “Our team helped take donations, stacked up food, provided veterinary care, walked the animals and did whatever they could to help out. She noted there were about 700 animals at the Lone Star Convention Center. On Sept. 5, HWAC team members returned home on a Southwest Airlines flight, bringing back 64 Harvey Pets ranging from dogs to cats, puppies and kittens. Gercke shared that SeaWorld San Antonio donated vans with air conditioning to transport the animals during a three-hour drive back to the Austin Airport. When HWAC touched ground in San Diego, Sea World San Diego provided animal transportation to Rancho Santa Fe. The journey these shelter animals went through

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association wants Covenant residents to attend its RSF Connect Town Hall meeting at 5 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. RSF Connect is a fiber-optic network aimed at bringing high-speed 1-Gigabit-per-second internet service to the Covenant. Residents are asked to attend since the decision to bring high-speed internet to the area requires a community-wide vote. Ballots for the community advisory vote will be mailed on Sept. 11 and are due back to the RSFA on Oct. 4. A tabulated count is scheduled for Oct. 5. According to Association Assistant Manager Christy Whalen, RSF Connect meeting coverage will include the benefits of the fiber-optic network, project cost and financing, project timeline, costs and fees to Covenant residents and services offered.

Whalen also pointed out that this is a critical community project coming to a vote. “We encourage all our members to attend this Town Hall Meeting,” she said. “It’s a great chance for members to hear details about the project. It will be an opportunity for questions, and there will be a presentation.” Whalen wants people to know that the Association decided on a community advisory vote, meaning that it is not obligated to go to the community for the vote. “However, the board has indicated that they will abide by the community sentiments,” Whalen said. The estimated cost of RSF Connect is $13 to $14 million. The RSF Golf Club is located at 5827 Via de la Cumbre in Rancho Santa Fe. For more information about RSF Connect, visit RsfAssociation.org

Mike Licosati leaves Association board By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe Association board member Mike Licosati resigned on Aug. 23. Licosati and his family are leaving the Ranch and relocating to Solana Beach. Licosati became an Association board member in 2015 and was voted into a three-year term. Both he and current board President Fred Wasserman ran an uncontested race and filled the seats of outgoing directors Rochelle Putnam and Craig McAllister. “We will miss the place we have called home and raised our three children over the past 15 years. We have made many lifelong friends. As our kids are now all teenagers, it was a natural time for transition,” Licosati said in a statement. He added, “The RSFA has improved, in some areas dramatically, since we moved here, especially all the new, hardworking and professional staff. I feel confident the momentum we started will continue.” In addition to being an Association board member, Licosati also served in the position as co-chair of the Technology Committee. This committee has been championing RSF Connect, a fiber-optic network that will bring high-speed internet to the Covenant. According to Christy TURN TO HARVEY ON 8

Planning Commission backs Leucadia tasting room By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — The Encinitas Planning Commission unanimously backed a proposed tasting room in downtown Leucadia over concerns from several neighbors that there were too many alcohol-serving establishments in the area. The commission on Sept. 7 approved the proposal from Saint Archer to open a tasting room in the former Fern Boutique, sandwiched between Surfy Surfy and Paddle Planet on North Coast Highway 101. Commissioners had some questions and concerns about a lack of parking but came to a consensus that as part of the approval, the developer would try to create two parking spots in the rear of the building if it were feasible. Representatives of Saint Archer, a San Diego brewery that was acquired in 2015 by beer giant MillerCoors, told the commission they believed the tasting

room would fit the character of the block, which is one of the more vibrant parts of Leucadia. The owners of Surfy Surfy and Coffee Coffee both voiced support for the project. “I am really looking forward to having a good neighbor to share our wall with,” JP St. Pierre, the co-owner of Surfy Surfy, said about the tasting room. But several neighbors were less than enthused with the project and urged the commission to deny it, citing a perceived over-concentration of such establishments. “We have too many establishments, we don’t need another one like that in that one block area,” said John Patrick “Pat” Conlon, who lives on Jasper Street near the project. Commissioners, however, said the concentration of alcohol-serving establishments was relatively minor compared to downtown Encinitas.

Association manager highlights accomplishments RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe Association Manager Bob Hall shared the Association’s fiscal year accomplishments with the board of directors and Covenant residents during the August monthly meeting. The 40 accomplishments mentioned were in the areas of code enforcement, database merging and improvements, the bylaws and governing documents, better community dialogue, the Association website, newsletters and e-blasts, the fiber-optic design project, online statements, the voter verification process, grants for community safety, election and voting rules, tree removal and more. Looking ahead, Hall presented the Association’s three-year goals. “These groups have been extremely busy,” he said. “One of our goals is to install a fiber-optic network to serve RSF members.” The next goal listed was to address the challenge of water rates.

Californians in Congress must back up hurricane aid California Focus By Thomas D. Elias

Pot cultivation wrong for Encinitas Marijuana cultivation and sales in your backyard pose profound risk to the community character, safety and property values and there are points that you need to know right now. Let me start out by saying that I am not opposed to the benefits of medical marijuana or even to argue the pluses or minuses of marijuana use at all. I am however opposed to the profound risks upon our community to shift to a Pacific Beach or Pueblo, Colorado, town environment inviting drug culture, trafficking and safety issues to our city. Furthermore I am shocked that a decision of this magnitude has not been communicated to the Encinitas residents to this point. I would like to pose a few questions to the Encinitas residents and ask: Did you know the following? 1. Allowing cultivation and sales of marijuana may change the entire makeup and character of our community just like it has in the city of Pueblo Colorado (see http://bit. ly/2h0P33C) It outlines how pot dispensaries are available on every corner, welfare, homeless/vagrancy and underage use of marijuana are at all-time highs. Emergency room visits for overdose are at all-time high. Resources taxing police, jails

and environmental water use are also off the charts. Is this what you want for the city of Encinitas? 2. Encinitas is having the final of several months of subcommittee meetings on Sept. 28 to decide on the cultivation and sale of cannabis in our city despite very little knowledge of this by most of the Encinitas residents. 3. City Council has been pounced upon by the cannabis industry representatives flooding the “public” subcommittee and council meetings. This profiteering biased influence is attempting to sway our council members away from the interests of protecting Encinitas residents and toward the profit making marijuana industry. 4. If approved, growth will be allowed in several greenhouses within Encinitas surrounded on all sides by residential communities, homes and children. California law requires growth of this product in greenhouses. We are not talking about this being far removed out in rural fields but right in our backyards. 5. Multi-million-dollar cash crop cannabis growth will inevitably invite drug trafficking gangs, gun wielding security guards, and danger to our children and community with no current regulations or even the

I’ve given some serious consideration as to why the Encinitas City Council would entertain the commercial cultivation of pot. Could it be for higher tax/fee revenues? No; social and policing costs will likely exceed any increased revenue. Maybe to help our schools? No; both our school districts have approved resolutions against pot. To support families? No; this would de-stigmatize drugs and make the job of parents harder. To protect our agricultural heritage? What heritage? Agriculture in

• • • Encinitas has almost entirely disappeared with the advent of flowers imported from South America. Have you looked recently for an orange grove in Orange County? Times change. To help the environment? No; six gallons of water per day per plant and a host of toxic fertilizers are required. The ambient odor from such growing operations is said to be terrible. To reduce crime? No, crime goes up wherever the pot industry opens shop. Colorado is not faring well. To improve property values? Definitely not. Would you buy a house near

existence of a police department to enforce these laws. This is serious and real risk to the safety of your community and a direct hit to the property values of your homes that border these greenhouses. So whether you are for or against marijuana use for medical or social uses, please realize there is a pending decision coming very quickly that has risk of profoundly changing the safety, property values and character of our community and may bring a litany of changes to our beach community making it like a Pacific Beach or a Pueblo, Colorado. Please take action with two immediate steps: 1. Please show your support at the next City Council meetings at 6 p.m. at 505 S. Vulcan on Sept. 20 and Sept. 27 and in the subcommittee meeting on Sept. 28. This is the best way to show our council members that our community cares about preserving what we have. 2. Please sign the “Citizens against Pot” petition online immediately at: https://parentsagainstpot. nationbuilder.com/sign_a_ petition Please protect our children and our community.

It doesn’t seem that way now, with one hurricane after another battering the East and Gulf coasts, shutting down oil refineries, flooding downtowns and residential neighborhoods alike and inflicting hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of damages. But California remains the most disaster-prone state in America. That’s why it behooves Californians in Congress to get behind every hurricane aid package they can this fall. Their own districts may be next. It’s not a matter of if California will be struck by another major earthquake, but when. It’s not a matter of if wildfires will consume homes and businesses; they do it every year and 2017 is no exception. California also could see massive floods if some flawed dams here fail during the next season of heavy rain. The costs of Hurricane Irma have not yet been totted up, but Harvey’s toll is pretty well known: at least $180 billion in damage, and likely a final tally about twice that. Insurance companies will cover at lot of this, but despite what we often hear, Texans are not so different from Californians: We often vote differently, but we share a tendency to be under-insured for catastrophe. So while nowhere near half of Californians living in known earthquake fault zones have quake insurance because they feel prices and deductibles are too high, it’s the much the same with Texans living in flood plains in and around cities like Houston, Port Arthur and Beaumont: well over half lack flood insurance. This means the federal government must step in. President Trump, knowing how basic Texas and Florida are to his political fortunes, has pushed hard for bigly (as he might put it) aid to hurricane victims. No Californian voted against the initial Harvey aid package approved by Congress, but Irma aid remains an unknown. Any Californian who votes against even part of it would be a shortsighted fool, the way Texas Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn have been revealed as hypocrites for opposing aid after the devastating East Coast Hurricane Sandy in 2013. No sooner did Cruz, for one, demand big-dollar help for Texas after Harvey than fellow Republican Chris Christie, the em-

battled governor of New Jersey, lambasted him for pushing double standards because of his vote against post-Sandy aid. Cruz called that bill a “Christmas tree” of unrelated boondoggles, but the Congressional Research Office found virtually all its money went to genuine reconstruction or prevention projects. It’s also true that only one Texas Republican in the House voted for Sandy aid. So there is some doubt their GOP friends from areas hit by Sandy will be very generous with Texans in upcoming rounds of disaster funding. Now fast forward to the next big California quake. It’s highly possible whoever is president then will be far less sympathetic to distraught Californians than former President Bill Clinton was in 1994, after the last major urban temblor struck California. Clinton produced more than $10 billion in federal aid, setting up many offices for the Federal Emergency Management Agency to dispense checks for reconstruction and prevention of future damage via retrofits securing homes to their foundations. More than 100,000 homeowners got checks for $10,000 or more. If — rather, when — the truly Big One of about 8.0 on the Richter Scale strikes along the San Andreas Fault, damages will dwarf what any hurricane can do. Maybe that’s why none of the eight California Republicans in the House who voted no on helping Sandy’s victims opposed post-Harvey assistance. (All Democrats voting were on the yes side both times.) Those eight include several from quake-prone areas, like Duncan Hunter of Alpine, Dana Rohrabacher of Costa Mesa, Ed Royce of Fullerton, Paul Cook of Yucca Valley and Darrell Issa of Vista. Others, like Tom McClintock of Elk Grove and Jeff Denham of Turlock are already targets for other reasons and need no more trouble. The bottom line: Any Californians opposing aid to hurricane victims might also be casting a virtual vote against relief that will be desperately needed in California’s future. Why would any of those folks want to be so short-sighted, no matter how tight-fisted they are on other federal spending? Then again, some of them have done it before.

SDUHSD board recall effort floated By Aaron Burgin

SOLANA BEACH — A group of parents has increased its drumbeat of criticism about the current San Dieguito Union High School District board majority and superintendent, which has raised speculation within the community about a potential recall campaign. The group of parents has been critical about a number of decisions made by the district over the past year, including the decision to give teachers and staff members 12.5-percent pay raises and the timing of the board’s 3-2 decision to promote Eric Dill to superintendent. But the criticism recently reached its height over the school district’s decision to house its adult transition special education program in two modular units adjacent to the multi-million dollar renovated Earl Warren Middle School Campus. Despite the district’s recent decision to relocate the program to La Costa Canyon High School, the group of parents has continued to raise concerns about the board majority and superintendent’s actions. They have regularly attended board meetings and asked questions of the

school board and superintendent about the various issues, only to have district officials not answer the questions due to board meeting policy. Most recently, parents questioned the makeup of a proposed special education task force formed in the wake of the issues with the adult transition program. In recent months, a website was launched called “SDUHSD Watchdog,” which purports to shed a light on the school district, focusing on several of the issues recently raised, including the adult transition program and the issue of the relationship between the school district and its fundraising foundations. Most of the group’s ire is focused on the board majority of Amy Herman, Joyce Dalessandro and Beth Hergesheimer, who parents within the group described as tone deaf and out of touch with the needs of students and their families. “None of this would happen if they were respectful to parents and answered their questions,” said Wendy Gumb, a parent who alleged pay-to-play in the Torrey Pines High School baseball program. The state Department of Education recently conclud-

ed there was no evidence to support the allegations. “I think the school board has forgotten that they are in the customer service business, and that the students and the parents … are those customers.” The Coast News recently received a phone call from a person who declined to give their name who said that a group was working on a recall of one or more of the board majority. The Coast News could find no documents filed with the school district or the county registrar of voters, which would have campaign finance documents filed by any group supporting or opposing such an effort. Parents critical of the district said they were not aware or were not involved in any recall attempt — though several said they would support such an action. “I don’t know about any recall, but that would be amazing,” said Mary Turk, one of the district’s loudest critics in the issues with the adult transition program. Turk said she feels the district not only stumbled when it came to the student’s proposed placement at Earl Warren, but also in its long-term planning for the district’s $449 million

bond campaign, Proposition AA., which made no mention of the program. Turk specifically criticized Herman, who acknowledged during the monthslong issues with the program that she did not know about the program before the complaints. “She didn’t even know what ATP was,” Turk said. “I am all for her being recalled.” Lucile Lynch, who ran unsuccessfully for school board in 2016, has been championing efforts to improve special education in the district for several years. When asked about a recall attempt, Lynch said she was unaware of one, but said she had also heard the speculation. “I have heard rumors too,” Lynch said in a brief email. “I am not personally involved if that rumor is true.” The Coast News reached out to Herman, who is up for re-election in 2018 after finishing third in a race for three spots in 2014. Herman declined to comment on the record for the story. The Coast News also reached out to Dill for comment, but he did not return the call before the time of publication.

Woodward readies for Remember Me Thursday By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The statistics on how many orphaned pets lose their lives are staggering. According to Helen Woodward Animal Center, 2.6 million orphaned pets will never find their forever homes. In 2013, HWAC CEO and President Mike Arms shared with his team how difficult it is to wrap one’s mind around this number. “Mike wanted to put a face on that number and create a day where we all would really think about the orphan pets we know, the people who have adopted them and how animals have touched somebody’s life,” said Jessica Gercke, HWAC PR and communications director. “We wanted to create a day where we see those faces and understand how beautiful these creatures are.” The idea behind the day was that by raising the topic, people would be able to see the problem more clearly. And in 2013, Remember Me Thursday® was born. Every fourth Thursday in September, HWAC dives into social media asking everyone to light a candle. This year, it lands on Thursday, Sept. 28. Taking the reins as spokeswoman this year is actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth. “People then take pictures of their pets next to the candle to remember all the animals that lost their lives without ever finding a

forever home,” Gercke said. The Remember Me Thursday website also has virtual candle lightings. Overall, the goal is to raise awareness for pet adoption. “Everybody has known a pet in somebody’s life that was adopted,” she said. “Everybody has seen the beauty that these animals can bring. On this one day, we are asking everybody to share this message.” Since Remember Me Thursday launched, 160 different countries have participated and 364 million social media impressions made. Gercke also shared that Remember Me Thursday has netted the attention of numerous celebrities. While Chenoweth will be this year’s spokesperson, Pauley Perrette from “NCIS” was HWAC’s spokeswoman last year. The year before that, it was Carrie Ann Inaba from “Dancing with the Stars.” Gercke shared that actress Diane Keaton also participates every year. “It’s just a huge group of people that get behind this because it’s such a simple thing to do and we unite with people everywhere,” Gercke said. “We’re basically creating one strong voice for these creatures who have no voice.” Gercke describes Remember Me Thursday as a beautiful program and a great thing for animal lovers to do together. In honor of Remember of Thursday, two events are

The Art of Fashion 2017 has arrived By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Nestled inside Mille Fleurs restaurant in Rancho Santa Fe, Maggie Bobileff and Denise Hug glance at each other and smile. They have a lot to be happy about these days. After months of planning, these co-chairs of the Art of Fashion 2017 worked countless hours with the help of their committee members. Their Patron Party on Aug. 22 was a success, and the day everyone has been waiting for is finally here — The Art of Fashion on Sept. 14. According to the co-chairs, The Country Friends in partnership with South Coast Plaza is presenting the Art of Fashion. The afternoon venue is the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe and proceeds from the day go to the many San Diego-based charities that The Country Friends supports.

The annual Patron Party held at Mille Fleurs, the fine dining eatery owned by Hug and her husband Bertrand Hug, welcomed event patrons for aperitifs and wine. “The Patron Party is to thank all of our Art of Fashion sponsors and patrons who have donated money and time to help make the event a success,” Hug said. During the evening, Hug and Bobileff thanked their Art of Fashion 2017 honoree, Jenny Craig. For the co-chairs, this is their special tribute to a very dear friend. “We couldn’t think of anybody more deserving of this than Jenny,” Hug said. “Over the years, she has given so much and contributed so much to the community.” Bobileff pointed out how frequently Craig is asked to become an honoree. With a busy schedule and commitments, she

sometimes can’t fulfill all those requests. “When we asked her, she said yes right away,” Bobileff said. “We were really pleased.” For Bobileff, what she admires most about Craig is her polished intelligence. “With a family and kids, Jenny created an amazing business,” Bobileff said. Hug admits that Craig has a way of inspiring people to do better. “She inspires me to be better all the time,” Hug said. And when it comes to fashion, Bobileff said Craig has a unique sense of style. She’s a fashionista who knows what she likes. Looking back at the planning stages for the Art of Fashion, Bobileff and Hug shared that their partnership was all about communication. In fact, they spoke daily about the event. The ladies also noted

how thrilled they are with the generous sponsorship support they received. With all the strategic planning that an event of this caliber takes, Hug shared that her favorite part of it all was the satisfaction she would feel after the meetings. Every person on the committee was volunteering their time, she said. Bobileff’s favorite part will undoubtedly be the day of the event when she gets to see the fruits of their labor. “It’s that feeling of excitement when everything comes together at the end,” Bobileff said For Bobileff and Hug, every accomplishment was a milestone. Now, it’s time for them to sit back and enjoy the moment. “When the day comes, it’s going to be bittersweet,” Hug said. “But we are so proud and happy the Art of Co-chairs of Art of Fashion 2017, Denise Hug and Maggie Bobileff, celFashion is here.” ebrate the milestones.

September is California Wine Month — two ways to celebrate taste of wine frank mangio


t seems like the corks are flying off the bottles more than normal this month and there’s good reason. It’s California Wine Month and the festivals and wine dinners are adding up. Wine is big business in California with more than 4,000 wineries in 138 wine regions, doing nearly 90 percent of the production of wine in the U.S. From Mendocino to San Diego, the climate, soil and topography ensure there will be a harvest of some 120 lovely grape varietals, the best being Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc.

Two events in Southern California best exemplify the character of wineries in this state with quality family-style wines, and generations of rich, bold and fruity vintages. The two are Newport Beach Wine and Food Festival Sept. 29 to Oct. 1; and Wine and Wishes in La Costa Carlsbad on Sept. 30. Both will be displaying and pouring top-shelf selections of primarily Napa Valley wines. Both will offer world-class cuisine with handpicked chefs. Both will have live entertainment. There will be ideas and fun elements that will make them separate and special to their community and to deserving charities. Taste of Wine will be on the scene at both soirees. Highlights at Newport Beach include more than 250 varieties of wines and a baseball team-size of world-class chefs led by Master Chef Hubert Keller of Napa Valley. San Diego’s

A special Friday night “Taste of Provence” with wines and a special menu is planned with a cocktail reception featuring Moet Hennessy Champagne and four celebrity chefs at the Winery in Newport Beach. Cost is $295 each for this special night. Saturday and Sunday 2:30 to 6 p.m. are the Grand Tastings with food from 40 restaurants, plus wines, spirits and brews along with live music.

North County attorney plans to use pageant title for charitable efforts By Bianca Kaplanek

CARMEL VALLEY — When a pageant director suggested Carolyn Kirner compete for Mrs. California, the Carmel Valley resident was intrigued. However, there was one small problem. “I wasn’t married at the time,” she said. “But I told my boyfriend if we ever got married it would be something I’d be interested in pursuing.” A lot has changed since then. Kirner and Chuck Schmidt exchanged wedding vows in 2015 and this past October she took the first step on that journey when she was crowned Mrs. San Diego 2017. Although she didn’t win the Mrs. California-America Pageant in June, she became the first San Diegan to be named Mrs. California Outstanding Married Woman, an award given to a woman who has shown exceptional courage in her life, been exemplary in her community service efforts or portrayed a special attitude that sets her apart from others. “I feel very, very honored,” Kirner-Schmidt said. “I’m amazed that they picked me. I want to make the most out of having this title.” To that end she will continue making appearances throughout the county to promote Victoria’s Voice Foundation to help reduce overdose deaths, something she encountered during her time as a paramedic. “You basically had to scoop them up and head to the hospital and pray you got there before they died,” she said. “As a paramedic I remember how frustrating that was. Victoria’s

Voice is raising money so all first responders can have (the drug) that can reverse the overdose. “I adopted that as my platform because it touches my heart,” Kirner-Schmidt added. “I saw it in my early career and I’ve had young people in my children’s lives overdose. It’s preventable. You can get somebody

on the verge of death and give them this drug and save them.” Kirner-Schmidt is also committed to “helping one woman at a time” as an attorney, a second career she initially doubted was attainable. She gave up her paramedic job when she married her first husband and became a stay-athome mom. Eleven years and three children later, she said, her spouse decided he didn’t want to be married anymore. She said she had once thought of becoming a lawyer but didn’t believe she was smart enough. As a single mom, she also didn’t think she had the time or money. Additionally, she was three courses short of an undergraduate degree. With support from family and friends and a scholarship to attend Trinity Law School in Santa Ana, Kirner-Schmidt decided to go for it. She made the 80-plus mile commute to college from Carmel Valley, sometimes taking her kids with her. The first year she took classes concurrently at San Diego State University to earn her bachelor’s degree. “I studied in the bleachers of my son’s baseball games and on the grass at soccer games,” she said. “So now, when my clients say they can’t do something, I tell them they can. “As a divorce attorney, first I try to save marriages,” she added. “But if that doesn’t work I encourage them to follow their dreams.” Occasionally, KirnerSchmidt puts her money where her mouth is. “I’ve told a few women,

‘Don’t pay me now. Pay me later,’” she said. “I don’t do it for everybody. I obviously have a business to run. But when I see people who have potential I want to help them succeed. And every single woman I put myself on a limb for has paid me back and succeeded.” Kirner-Schmidt competed in beauty pageants when she was younger but never thought of pursing it further than that. In 2005, while attending a Mrs. America event to support a friend who had been named Mrs. New York, a director suggested she try for the Mrs. California title. The first step, after her wedding, was at the local level. She was crowned Mrs. San Diego in June 2016 and visited nearly every community to raise awareness and funds for her charity and others. She judged a chili contest, greeted participants at the Red Nose Run and presented flowers and a trophy to the owner of the winning horse at the Del Mar Racetrack. One of her most memorable events was Sip and Wrap, a fundraiser for Connor’s Cause for Children that helps the families of critically ill or injured children. “My parents didn’t have that. I wish they had,” said Kirner-Schmidt, who lost a brother to leukemia when he was 3. “I am so amazed by that organization. I feel really blessed to help that cause.” She and her daughter recently collected diapers, clothes, bottles, blankets, wipes and toys for “the tiniest Hurricane Har-

vey victims” in Texas, where her granddaughter was born. “Seeing tiny little babies struggling with the flood waters has really touched my heart,” she said. As Mrs. California Outstanding Married Woman, KirnerSchmidt can compete for the title of Mrs. California-America again in 2018. The pageant includes a swimsuit competition, during which participants must create a mask that represents them and explain why to the judges. The women are also scored on their evening gown choice and answers during an interview session. But Kirner-Schmidt said it is not simply a beauty contest. “You think that beauty pageants are just a bunch of pretty, self-centered women,” she said. The ladies she competed with the first time are “14 of the nicest, most well-rounded women I’ve ever met.” “Any one of them could have won and I would have cried tears of joy,” she said. “They were amazing. They uplift other women to do community service. They all have platforms they raise money for. So it’s more than just a beauty pageant. It’s getting your message out there.” So for the next 10 months or so, Kirner-Schmidt will make appearances throughout the county, wearing her crown — a replica of one worn by Princess Diana — and promoting her charity. Should she win Mrs. California-America, she would go on to represent the state at the Mrs. America pageant. The winner of that will compete for Mrs. World.

bies needing special care, while others may have been abused. And then this storm hits, and there is all this devastation. Then these shelter animals are taken to Lone Star Convention Center where they are surrounded by a ton of oth-

er animals and then they fly here.” When the animals arrived in San Diego, the HWAC team gave them a 48-hour rest period and determined if any had health issues, like a cold. HWAC foster families then gathered to take these pets home until they find their forever homes. “Our foster families have been such lifesavers to us,” Gercke said. “Majority of our Harvey Pets are in foster right now, and we provide our fosters everything, and they bring the animals in for veterinary checks.” But most of all, HWAC’s Harvey Pets are getting the love and attention they need. Gercke wants potential forever families to stay in touch with HWAC for updates on Harvey Pets adoptions which officially began on Sept. 9. As each pet recuperates, they will be up for adoption. Gercke asks that monetary donations be made to Operations Pets Alive! or the Montgomery County Animal Shelter. “These organizations are still finding and saving animals,” Gercke said. “Of course, that takes so much money, so we ask that people consider continuing to help them out.” For more information about Operation Pets Alive! visit www.operationpetsalive.org, for Montgomery County Animal Shelter www.mcaspets.org and for HWAC log onto www.animalcenter.org

The Vista Viking Festival is Sept. 23-24. Photo by Krisztina Scheeff

The Vikings are coming! By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Faithful event-goers to The Vista Viking Festival are celebrating a special milestone this year. The annual festival is marking its 15th anniversary. Event planners claim that participants and spectators will be in for a special treat on Sept. 23 and Sept. 24. Hosts of the festival — the Norwegian Fish Club Odin and Sons of Norway — are pulling out all the stops with action-packed Old World Scandinavian entertainment such as flaming ax-throwing, fish flinging, a Viking log toss, live combat, Scandinavian food and music, and more. The Vista Viking Festival, one of the largest fundraisers for the organization, is held at Norway Hall on land purchased by Sons of Norway Lodge in the 1950s. “We, unlike most lodges, have our own land, which gives us the opportunity to do this festival,” James Nelson-Lucas, director of public narrative, said. “Earlier on, our festival was just a summer/fall festival for mostly lodge members. But in 1992, we added another group to our organization called the Norwegian Fish Club Odin, which is largely for people who are interested in old Norse heritage. “We have a Viking group, and so they started coming to the summer festivals, and it just got bigger and bigger, and eventually it became a full-fledged festival.” According to Nelson-Lucas, the festival rais-

es money for the Norway Hall Foundation, which owns and manages the property. Proceeds will go to support improvements to the Viking Village infrastructure. Nelson-Lucas shared that the Sons of Norway and the Norwegian Fish Club Odin are chartered members of the hall and use the facilities. The hall, lodge and lands were purchased to promote and share the Scandinavian and Norwegian heritage and culture. Year-round, the Viking Village offers visitors a yesteryear Norwegian experience while hosting other cultural activities. Destinations such as the blacksmith shop, outdoor oven-baking and weapons range for shooting arrows are there all the time; and, many of the frames for the Village houses also remain throughout the year. However, once a year during the Vista Viking Festival weekend, merchants, entertainers and the public are invited for a memorable experience. Last year, the weekend drew a crowd of 6,000. Those same numbers are

One too many cooks in my kitchen

small talk jean gillette


y retired husband has decided to cook. He is also canning, pickling and preserving, and my kitchen has been hit by the anti-White Tornado. It shouldn’t surprise me, as his mother did all those things with the bounty from her garden. First, his retirement produced a massive garden, then his upbringing kicked right in. While that sounds glorious in theory, we have very different ideas of what makes yummy food and what might actually be worth making from scratch. While I will continue to eat the last of the cherry to-

matoes fresh off the bush, he decided to make tomato sauce. While he was in the mood, he brought home a bushel of dried beans to make his own refried beans — because you can’t buy either of those at the market for a couple of bucks. Oh wait. You can. But he has fun simmering and soaking and filling the freezer. And he gets an A+ for effort, since preserving food is, without question, an effort. He tried to make marmalade from our oranges, but that went awry. He squeezed endless lemons for homemade lemonade. He harvested his own basil, garlic and macadamia nuts and made a very respectable pesto. But remember, to get to a single macadamia nut, you have to sift and gather them from the ground, then crack through two separate shells, both harder than diamonds. He bought a peeler/ corer and made his own applesauce. He took his

acorn squash and made a chili from it. Resourceful, perhaps, but I would have simply gone for baking with brown sugar and butter. He ate his okra just plain from the microwave. He baked multiple blackberry cobblers with questionable crusts. He devoured tiny artichokes, although I’m still unclear how. In short, he held true to the motto of his farmer/Depression-era forebears, “If you grow it, it must be consumed.” I did my bit by eating all the tomatoes, zucchini and summer squash he grew, even stuffing one huge squash that hid under a leaf for too long. And I am giddily poised for avocado season with open mouth. That’s when I break out my guacamole skills and really shine. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer and masterful clean-up crew.

tions or pledges. The mission of the RSFEF is to support the school district, support its policies and programs, and to maintain small class sizes. Edwards wants parents to know that the foundation does work with families regarding their pledges. Red Envelope Day is a voluntary contribution. “We are a public school, and we never lose sight of that,” Edwards said. “But we know that this public

school would look a lot different without the financial support of the education foundation, as well as the volunteer support.” Edwards said that in some cases families will make their contribution payment in the second half of the year. And that’s perfectly fine. The RSFEF is flexible on different types of payment structures. “What we really do ask is that families pledge up front, even if they are going to pay later in the year. Because once we take a pledge, we count that as expected

dollars coming to us,” she said. “The No. 1 way parents can help us is by contributing or pledging by Red Envelope Day.” Edwards also pointed out that every contribution made to the RSFEF is 100 percent tax deductible and all donor recognition events are underwritten by its Community Partners Program so that every dollar goes directly to the district for the benefit of all students.

Why we need to maintain America’s national parks hit the road

e’louise ondash


lthough I’ve written an editorial or three in my journalistic career, I'm not an editorial writer. Ninety-nine percent of the time, I keep my opinions regarding public and/or controversial issues to myself because that’s what journalists are supposed to do. (This doesn't apply to family gatherings, of course; just ask my siblings.) But when it comes to threats to the environment and our precious open spaces, it’s hard to keep my mouth shut. In recent weeks, there has been much discussion at the federal level about the future of our national parks and monuments, and because this topic is near and dear to my heart and one that will affect so many now and in the future, I feel compelled to speak up. First, a little history. It’s amazing that, in 1906 when the population of the United States was a mere 85 million and we seemingly had limitless space to grow, President Theodore Roosevelt had the foresight to protect 233 million acres of public lands from development. Those lands included 150 million acres of national forest; 51 Federal Bird Reserves; five national parks; additional acres for Yosemite National Park; and 19 national monuments, which then included Devil’s Tower, Petrified Forest, Muir Woods, Grand Canyon and Mount Olympus. We should be eternally grateful that Roosevelt was a man with vision and understood the importance of preserving and maintaining our country’s spectacular open spaces and natural features. I’ve never heard anyone who has visited a national park or monument say that it was a mistake to set aside these

lands and keep them safe from development. Seeing Yosemite Falls and the giant sequoias and redwoods, canoeing through Maine’s Acadia National Park, peering into the Grand Canyon, hiking through the other-worldly rock formations in Colorado National Monument, and cruising through the waters of Alaska’s Kenai Fjords National Park will make a true believer out of the even the staunchest doubter. And why is it important to maintain and increase the size and numbers of our natural sanctuaries? Because we need clean air and solitude. We need to

smell the trees and the meadows and the wildflowers. We need to walk mountain trails, cross streams and take in grand vistas. We need to see eagles, moose, buffalo, antelope and bear in their natural habitats. The current Secretary of the Interior apparently doesn't share these senti-

ments. He wants to “downsize” 27 national monuments and open these lands to mining, drilling and logging. Does he understand or care that these open spaces cannot be replaced if they are usurped, abused or destroyed? Does he understand that these grand expanses of trees, snow-frosted peaks, mammoth boulders, desert arroyos, towering hoodoos, vermillion stone arches and free-running rivers are worth more than whatever we can get by mining, drilling and harvesting? As our population increases and the strain on all of our resources grows, we should take every opportunity to expand our protected open spaces, not shrink or develop them. And we must maintain those we have. Each is unique and what they offer should be there for the coming generations to enjoy and cherish. E’Louise Ondash is a freelance writer living in North County.

Celebrating 30 Years of serving our 120,000 readers in North County Right after I started the paper in 1987, I remember driving home after I had just met with a new advertiser. I had my 3-year-old son in the back seat of the car, and I asked myself, “what makes you think you can start a paper?” Well, I did! And I haven’t looked back for over 30 years!
