RSF School District approves strategic plan for arts program By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe School District unanimously decided at its August monthly board meeting on a new strategic plan for the arts. The decision was made following a comprehensive presentation by consultant Ashely Adams, who was brought on board to continue the development of the district’s MUSE program. MUSE encompasses the academic disciplines of music, dance, theater and visual arts. “I’m here today joined by many members of our strategic planning committee to share the goals of the entire year of reflection, thoughtfulness and hard work to determine the best path for the visual and performing arts at R. Roger Rowe,” Adams said. “Like in business and in life, greatness in education comes from vision, a clear path with measurable goals and a strong execution.” Adams said she was very excited to present the strategic plan — a collaborative effort which first began
in October 2016. Adams said she met with arts teachers, classroom teachers, parents and the administration to develop a complete assessment of the visual and performing arts programs. In February 2017, Adams presented the assessment to the board and strongly recommended the district engage in a strategic planning process for the arts. “In the spring of this year, you took action on this recommendation and over 20 stakeholders from this district as well as leaders from the county came together to forge a plan of the arts at R. Roger Rowe,” she said. Adams also extended her thanks to Pauleen Crooks of San Diego San Diego Arts Empower who offered support through the strategic planning process. “We will now be able to participate in their countywide networking and professional development opportunities,” she said. The five areas of growth identified for the arts at
R. Roger Rowe are access and equity, curriculum, instruction, community engagement and facilities and equipment. For example, in the category of access and equity, the goal is to provide every R. Roger Rowe student with a foundation in both the visual and performing arts. And in the curriculum category, students will be offered an arts-affiliated curriculum in each discipline with the goal of preparing them for future studies in high school and beyond. Above all, the purpose is to instill a long-term appreciation for the arts. According to Adams, each goal had two to five goal objectives within this five-year plan. “So, in phase one, it’s just establish what standards are we using, because we haven’t had an opportunity as a school to determine are we using California State standards or the national standards. So, that has to be established first and that’s phase one,” she said. “And then another step in phase one is professional development standards be-
cause once we decide what standards we’re going to use, the teachers have to have professional help if they’re staying on a path.” The next step is to have all teachers meet with their counterparts at the high schools to help align that curriculum. Adams also pointed out that each action plan is very clear in terms of who’s responsible and accountable for a goal. “I think we all know it’s great to have big dreams for a program and feel really passionate about it, but we have to put it down clearly on paper and know who’s accountable for that and who’s going to be working on it,” she said. One of the committee members present, R. Roger Rowe music teacher RC Haus, said he thought the point of the strategic plan was to help create a more robust thought process for the children. “It’s about inspiring all students to engage and connect with their world through the beauty of the arts,” he said.
RANCHO SANTA FE — Ranch residents can expect a new Rancho Santa Fe pharmacy to open to the public. The commercial building on El Tordo and La Granada was approved by the Rancho Santa Fe Association during its August monthly board meeting. The current pharmacy will remain in operation until their larger footprint of a 4,466-square-foot building opens across the street. According to RSF Association Building Commissioner Tom Farrar, the new site will be divided equally between the pharmacy and general retail. The original application date for the project was August 2016. “It’s moved fairly quickly,” Farrar said. Farrar also highlighted that a 4,057-square-foot rooftop area will provide 12 parking spots. An elevator and stairs will offer roof access. Additionally, 15 spots will be available at street level. Approving the project also meant a boundary adjustment to merge two parcels of the proposed site. This will be processed at the Association, Farrar said, as well as recorded with the County before final approval. Farrar explained that this variance is necessary to accommodate the project size. Pharmacy project architect Allard Jansen was invited to the meeting by board President Fred Wasserman to say a few words. “It (the project) completely enhances the intersection,” Jansen said. “The whole project team has looked carefully at the design guidelines.”
Jansen called the proposed pharmacy a successful design. Co-owner of the RSF Pharmacy David Mashayekan said the current pharmacy location is 60 years old. He described the interior as a maze, moving from one room to another. “There is a need for remodeling, and there are security issues,” said Mashayekan, noting the opioid crisis. “One of my pharmacies was broken into two weeks ago up north. It’s a problem.” Mashayekan shared that the RSF Pharmacy has been alerted by the state board that it needs to have a better visual floor plan so that pharmacists can view everything taking place, including medication supervision. “We don’t have that right now,” he said. “They (the state board) have given us some time to see what we are going to do.” At first, the plan was to remodel. However, that meant shutting down the business for three to four months. “And financing this (remodel) was a problem,” said Mashayekan, noting that they do not own the building. The next choice was buying the empty lot and relocating across the street to build a state-of-the-art pharmacy, he said. “We’ll be the envy of the industry,” Mashayekan said. Wasserman noted the project would add available parking to the community. “I think this is a great template for future building in the community,” board member Mike Licosati said. “It’s a fabulous addition to the community.”

Community Concerts of Rancho Santa Fe By Gail Kendall, President CCRSF
The Community Concerts 18th season is almost upon us but we are also in the planning stages of the 19th season. Seven board members, plus their spouses, attended the Showcase of Talent in Nashville, Tennessee, just a few weeks ago, presented by our agency Live On Stage. And, yes, all their travel, room, etc., was on their own nickel. We are excited that our options for 2018-19 season promise another successful selection of musical talent, just as our patrons have come to expect. CCRSF is a nonprofit 501(c)3 and we have several loyal and generous donors who enable us to “give back” in addition to presenting our concerts. In keeping with our mission to provide musical entertainment and education, our primary way to “give back” is with our Outreach programs, in which our concert artists will travel to one of our nearby schools for a mini-concert plus a Q&A. Most of our concert artists are willing to do this, all fees paid by CCRSF, of course. Needless to say, it is gratifying to see the wonderful responses we experience from the students. Perhaps the artist even talks about the experience at the concert later that evening. The Outreach sometimes even keeps giving. Susan Egan (Belle, “Beauty & the Beast”) performed at Canyon Crest and almost three years later returned as program director for their foundation fundraiser of the year. She did the choreography, rehearsed and also performed with the students, and even invited the student filmmakers into her home teaching them about lighting indoors and out. This year the schools fortunate to enjoy our Outreaches are: RSF’s R Roger Rowe School, Canyon Crest and the MiraCosta College Music Department. The Village Church, our venue, has also received charitable donations

to its sound system, Youth Lounge (our green room) and Fellowship Hall renovations, all of which benefit Community Concerts. CCRSF has also awarded our second modest scholarship, named in honor of CCRSF founder Holly Wilson, to a music major, the latest being a local student with exceptional talent and skills who quite likely will bring her talents right back to RSF and North County. Our concert evenings begin with a pre-concert social hour in our beautifully decorated Fellowship Hall, with catered light supper selections from Whole Foods and wine, sponsored by Northern Trust. We would not be able to afford these extras that make our
concerts so special were it not for our generous donors. Our biggest donor, of course, is Northern Trust, which has sponsored the wine since our very earliest days in the Garden Club. We consider Northern Trust as virtually our partner in the fun evenings of the Community Concerts. The CCRSF Concerts are eclectic in genre, the talent is excellent so even if it isn’t your favorite genre, chances are you will love the concert. Check out this season’s concerts at www.ccrsf.org. Ticket purchases can be made online or by mail: PO Box 2781, RSF 92067. Need more info? Email info@ ccrsf.org.

Local men offer hope with new rehab counseling center Taste the By Christina Macone-Greene
SAN MARCOS — The doors to a new outpatient drug and alcohol rehab counseling facility recently opened in San Marcos with the mission of offering an innovative approach to a sober lifestyle. The founders of Immersive Recovery believe their intensive program is unique. Having battled their own addictions and achieving sobriety, they understand the issues surrounding dependency. The founders of Immersive Recovery are Mike Weir, Wesley Heim and Robert Weir. They noticed the missing components in other outpatient programs and wanted to bridge the gap. The men guide clients toward a lifestyle of recovery which consists of success, enjoyment and fulfillment. Immersive Recovery clients also have the choice to stay at a sober living home during their counseling program. “Immersive Recovery is a men’s drug and alcohol treatment program treating chemical dependency as well as co-occurring disorders, and we also specialize in working with guys who have experienced failure to launch,” Robert Weir said. “So, on a weekly basis, we treat guys anywhere from five days per week to one day per week.” The organization offers a plan called “Discov-
er, Develop, Deploy.” It involves various therapies to help men not only engage in life but to give them a high level of clinical assistance with a credentialed,

professional team. “Discover, Develop, Deploy,” taps into what those in recovery need. “Being sober is a time when you get to decide who it is that you want to be, who it is that you actually are, what it is that you’re going to be into, and where it is you want to go,” Robert Weir said. According to the team, the Immersive Recovery experience gives clients the time away from the normal pressures of life and a stable platform to begin. Each founder brings his own life experiences, too. Robert Weir, 31, who was raised in Rancho Santa Fe with his brother Mike,

I don’t think there is any reason for me going back to using. This way of life is so far superior to what it was I experienced before that I have no intention of going back to it.” Cofounder Wesley Heim, 31, has been sober for more than four years. His addiction began with prescription drug abuse at around 15. It progressed into heroin — something quite common. “I’m from a normal,

life,” he said. Looking back, Heim believes his relapses early on happened because he wasn’t addressing the lifeskill portion of his recovery. “We feel adamant about inspiring passion and purpose in these guys,” Heim said. Robert Weir’s younger brother, Mike, 30, started using when he was in the eighth grade. “We’d party at a big house where the ‘in-crowd’ would go, and it would just be what everyone was doing. I didn’t think that there was anything wrong with it,” he said. Weekend parties would sometimes pour into the weekdays. “This progressed throughout high school and went into prescription pills as well as cocaine,” Mike Weir said. Unable to finish junior college, he had various odd jobs. He also pointed out how life took a hard turn when the opiate use started. “My day would consist of waking up, being sick because I wouldn’t have them (opiates) when I woke up and sitting in parking lots waiting for drug dealers to come drop off what I needed so I could feel well enough to operate throughout the day,” Mike Weir said. “It was just a continuous, vicious cycle for years.”
of medical problems,” Heim said. “It was only until I received the help that I needed to progress further in my life that things changed.” One of those changes was having a stronger family relationship. Heim described himself as being passionate about Immersive Recovery and wants a program that will not limit growth for their clients. “We are looking to equip these guys with the tools and the principles necessary to not only maintain continued sobriety but more so to solidify a foundation of recovery that permeates every area of their
RANCHO SANTA FE — Things take a tasty and mysterious turn at the Village Church Community Theater with “Murder By The Book,” a murder mystery dinner theater show by Craig Sodaro of Pioneer Drama Service. Performances will be at 6 p.m. Sept. 22 and Sept. 23 and at 1 p.m. Sept. 24. Tickets are $38 per person, which includes dinner. To purchase tickets, visit villagechurchcommunitytheater.org. In the play, The Raven Society is holding its annual meeting, to select the best mystery book of the year which will win the coveted Smoking Gun Award. Because of the prestige of the prize, the membership in this club is secret, even among themselves. Each member attends the three-day meeting, cut off from the rest of the world, disguised as a famous author. After leader Edgar Allen Poe receives a letter announcing that each member of the society will die, only mystery maven Agatha Christie takes the message seriously, but it becomes clear that one of the famous authors is trying to kill the competition.

Imams could worsen campus anti-Semitism California Focus By Thomas D. Elias
Taxing water won’t make it more affordable By Mark Muir
The Water Authority and its 24 member agencies have an unyielding commitment to providing a safe and reliable water supply for 3.3 million people at a reasonable cost. For San Diego County, that results in a constant, drought-resilient supply of water that meets rigorous state and federal quality standards. It’s not like that everywhere in California. Some rural, low-income communities face a different reality: their drinking water contains elevated levels of contaminants such as nitrates and arsenic. This public health issue and social justice challenge demands focused leadership by state officials to solve. Unfortunately, legislation under consideration in Sacramento would magnify the very problems it was designed to address by imposing a statewide tax. The tax would add approximately $130 million a year to residential and commercial water bills. Additionally, it would add approximately $30 mil-
lion in taxes on fertilizer and dairy products. As a regional public water agency, we absolutely support the intent of the bill – which is to improve the quality of drinking water in disadvantaged communities – but its approach is counterproductive. The problems are real, but implementing a water tax as the funding source is wrong. In fact, Senate Bill 623 calls this tax, a fee. Its goal is to improve water security for disadvantaged communities through a “Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fee.” Make no mistake: This is a tax, and taxing Californians for something as essential as water does not make sense. It will increase the cost of water, making it less affordable. It also will place undo upward pressure on food prices. Call it a lose-lose for low-income residents – and everyone else. That’s not the only problem with this bill: Imposing a statewide tax on water would force local water agencies to collect taxes for Sacramento. If past habits are the precedent, state government won’t pay for this service, yet most local agencies are already stretched thin. So in the end, ratepayers face the
double-whammy of paying higher taxes and paying water agencies to collect and distribute those funds. Clearly, the adage about the camel’s nose getting under the tent applies here. California is rife with programs in search of funding – low-income water rate assistance, forestry health and watershed protection, to name a few. Advocates and agencies already are eyeing revenues from a potential water tax, so what begins as a modest increase for ratepayers could grow rapidly as more and more projects force their way into the “tent.” A better approach is to use money from existing sources such as the state general fund, federal safe drinking water funds, the newly authorized state capand-trade program, and general obligation bond funds. That would match the way the state pays for other programs and initiatives identified as statewide priorities, without taxing the very products and services that we all agree should be affordable and accessible to all Californians.
There is no longer any doubt about whether anti-Semitism exists in America and on California college and university campuses. Even before the racist, white supremacist violence of mid-August in Charlottesville, VA, regents of the University of California recognized this, declaring unanimously last year that “Anti-Semitism, anti-Semitic forms of anti-Zionism and other forms of discrimination have no place at (UC).” It’s possible that statement and the call for individual campus chancellors to create rules tamping down on anti-Jewish hate speech and actions caused the 2016-17 academic year’s relative quietude on this front. But even with things a bit more civil on UC campuses, five of them ranked among America’s top 10 for anti-Semitic incidents in a study last spring by the watchdog group AMCHA Initiative. Although campuses saw less outright anti-Semitic rhetoric, incendiary speech and advocacy of violence against Jews became prominent this summer at major mosques near UC campuses, mosques where many Muslim students worship. This was weeks before Charlottesville. The California hate speech outbreak came less than a week after three Israeli Arabs shot two Israeli Druse Muslim border guards just outside a gate to Jerusalem’s landmark Temple Mount (known in Islam as the Noble Sanctuary), site of the landmark Al Aqsa Mosque. Jews revere the hilltop compound as the site of their ancient Temple, burned by Roman occupiers; it’s also the location of legendary episodes in the lives of the Biblical Abraham and the prophet Mohammad. Christians know it as the place where Jesus overturned the tables of money changers. Israel set up metal detectors at the gate after the shootings, sparking a non-violent Muslim protest seeing worshippers refuse to enter the area so long as there was added security. In reacting, imams at mosques near UC Davis and UC Riverside launched anti-Semitic tirades, going far beyond criticism of Israel and its actions. In the Islamic Center of Davis, directly across a street from the city’s UC campus, Imam Ammar Shahin prayed for Allah to “liberate the Al Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews” and to “annihilate them down to the very last one. Do not spare
any of them.” That’s a call for killing Jews everywhere, not only in Israel. Of course, no Jews occupied the mosque. If students in Shahin’s audience were to act this fall against Jewish students at Davis, should anyone be surprised? The Davis mosque quickly pulled footage of Shahin’s polemic from YouTube, but left up a video of the 30-year-old Egyptian-born cleric smiling as he taught a UC Davis class on Muslim marriages. At almost the same time Shahin preached hate in Davis, Imam Mahmoud Harmoush of the Islamic Center of Riverside, near UC Riverside, also preached a hateful, factually false sermon. First he claimed a plot between World Wars I and II to steal land in Palestine from Muslims through “killing, crime and massacres.” He added that Jews are now trying to extend the Israel-Arab conflict to “most of the Middle East, and even…to Mecca and Medina.” He ended with a call for Allah to “destroy them and rend them asunder and turn them…into the hands of the Muslims.” Like Shahin, he did not target Israeli government policy, but used historically false libels in his call for destruction of all Jews. Both imams’ Arabic-language comments were translated by the authoritative Middle East Media Research Institute; both later apologized. Shahin said he let emotion “cloud my better judgment” and that he understands “speech like this can encourage others to do hateful and violent acts. For this I truly apologize.” Said Harmoush, “All life is sacred and every person has a sacred right to respect, safety and liberty.” Which words from these men will most influence students in their congregations? No one knows, but the founder of one organization tracking campus anti-Semitism said, “Our studies show the more anti-Semitic rhetoric, the more anti-Semitic actions on campuses…” While these two sermons were clearly anti-Semitic, no one outside their organizations knows how often the imams have spoken similarly. None of this occurred on campuses, so it doesn’t fall under UC’s anti-discrimination policies. But UC and other institutions where both imams have taught clearly would be wise to keep both imams out of publicly-funded classrooms in the future. Email Thomas Elias at email@example.com.

Letters to the Editor Enforce smoking rules at track There’s been recent discussion endorsing Del Mar race track’s shift towards concerts. This is a great idea with one caveat. Even with pot legalization we still have local no-smoking ordinances and, in the case of the Del Mar Fairgrounds, a policy that prohibits tobacco and pot smoking at public concerts during racing season. Unfortunately, some concert-goers turn a blind
eye to such policies, as was the case recently at the Steel Pulse post-race concert (8/18). In spite of this and announcements it was a “no smoking” event, pot and tobacco smoking were strongly evident. The fact that security staff was insufficient to stem the problem left the public coughing and sputtering through a toxic fog of mixed, second-hand smoke. Such blatant disregard for policy creates a hazard for everyone, especially

those with asthma, allergies and pulmonary issues. As the American Lung Association and like-minded agencies repeatedly tell us, second-hand smoke is a serious health hazard. Users should respect no-smoking requirements. And security staff should be increased for enforcement in order to allow everyone to enjoy Fairground events without harmful health effects.

Sculpture soars in the center of Earl Warren campus By Bianca Kaplanek
SOLANA BEACH — When students begin classes this week at Earl Warren Middle School, they will do so on a completely rebuilt campus. In the center of the state-of-the-art facility is a sculpture the former principal describes as “a reflection of a commitment to the school and its students, education and the community.” “It’s also a reflection of the kindness of the community,” Adam Camacho said at an Aug. 17 dedication ceremony. “I’m so proud of what we have accomplished here.” The nearly 14-foot-high kinetic piece is topped by a wing-like structure that circles around a centerpiece featuring the school’s sea hawk logo on a blue background encased on both sides by a glass panel. It includes LED lighting in the middle “so at night it glows beautifully,” artist Amos Robinson said. It also contains a few hidden secrets inside that Camacho said all began “as a conversation in a small, dingy construction trailer.” After more than 60 years, Earl Warren, which first welcomed students in 1954, was beyond its useful life, lacking modern amenities such air conditioning. With money from a 2012 voter-approved bond initiative, officials concluded it was cheaper to level the district’s oldest facility and build a new one from the ground up. “My hope was that we would find something that would reflect on the old, except for bones, which would have stalled the project,” he said. After the groundbreaking in October 2015, dirt was moved and removed but nothing historic was uncovered. To ensure that didn’t happen decades from now, when the new school might be outdated and need replacing, he decided a time capsule was in order. Camacho shared his idea with Heather Dugdale, president of the Parent Teacher Student Association. “She rallied her team and they ran with the project,” he said. “This was Heather’s vision.” Dugdale said the campus enhancement committee, headed by Ashley Hellickson, began researching local artists. Intrigued by Robinson’s kinetic bikes on South Coast Highway 101 in front of Java Depot, Hellickson emailed him and asked if he would be interested in creating a public art piece for Earl Warren. He agreed and invited her to his studio for ideas. He also visited the campus was while it was under construction. An initial concept featured a wave but that was already used by Oak Crest, one of the district’s other middle schools. The decision was made to use Earl Warren’s seahawk mascot but the design

asked the major donors if we could repurpose it for this. ... The other $25,000 was raised in a month from families.” The inside of the pedestal serves as a time capsule, which was filled and sealed the day of the dedication. Items include Earl Warren’s 2017 yearbook, alumni stories, school T-shirts, notes from students, photos, an Uno card game and “pictures of things that were important to us,” Dugdale said. The plan is to open it in 2067. “This is really special to all of us,” new principal Reno Medina said. “It’s a big symbol of our partnership with the community. When we look at it every The sculpture, which features the school’s seahawk mascot, sits in the day it will remind us how center of the newly rebuilt Earl Warren Middle School campus in Solana important that is.” Beach.

remained elusive until committee members began perusing Robinson’s website and came across a sculpture with red globe atop the pedestal in Florida. “We asked if we could have that one but could he change it,” Dugdale said. The piece was for sale as part of a public art display. Robinson renegotiated the contract and in a week the sculpture was on a truck on its way to San Diego, she added. Robinson invited Camacho, Dugdale, an art teacher, a few students and some other PTSA members to his South County studio when it arrived. Everyone in the group etched their name on the inside of the logo. With a Sharpie, they also wrote their names on the inside of the hollow pedestal, which
was resting on sawhorses. “Then I showed them the finish options and asked them to pick the one they liked,” Robinson said. “They chose a satin finish. Then I gave them an angle grinder and safety glasses and gloves and asked who wanted to be the first one to start the finish. “One student stepped up and then everybody did a stroke on that,” he added. “They really got involved. One of the students turned to me as she was leaving and said she always wanted to be a painter, but now she wanted to be a sculptor. That was just like wow.” Robinson said the whole experience was so amazing that he is in talks with the school to possibly teach a sculpture class there for the next few years. The entire process,
from concept to installation, took about four months, “which is unheard of in a public art piece,” Robinson said. “It was a team effort,” he added. “Everyone involved did everything they could to meet the deadlines.” “What made it so perfect and magical was the visionary principal and the PTSA that moved very quickly and an artist that was an absolute dream to work with,” Dugdale said. “Adam Camacho was just instrumental in getting the district onboard and Amos made it happen.” “And none of this would have happened without our donors,” Camacho added. In addition to the sculpture, Robinson created a 4-foot-high “54” that will hang on a centrally located tower facing into the campus and a 3-foot-tall sea hawk logo that will be installed over the multipurpose building entrance. The total project cost was approximately $45,000.

Conservancy gets $15,000 grant for restoration RANCHO SANTA FE — The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy (SDRVC) has received a grant of $15,000 for a restoration project in Fairbanks Ranch called the “Fairbanks Ranch Invasive Plant Removal and Stream Enhancement within the San Dieguito River Valley.” The funds, granted by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service through its Partners for Fish & Wildlife Program, will support the continuance of work on the restoration project that began in 2015 when residents of Fairbanks Ranch became concerned about the health of their watershed following the 2007 wildfires. After the wildfires the residents became aware of the flammability of the non-native vegetation and the need to get help to have it removed. “We could not do this project without the support of the residents of Fairbanks Ranch and Rancho Santa Fe,” said Trish Boaz, SDRVC executive director. “The community and our partners - the California Native Plant Society and the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District - came together to make this happen.” In 2016, an additional effort took place to remove eucalyptus trees, arundo

Due to the success of the work conducted to date, several new owners signed onto the project and the work has expanded to 200 acres covering additional parcels in Fairbanks Ranch and Rancho Santa Fe. With this grant, the conservancy will be able to once again hire a 10-person crew from ACE to remove arundo, tamarisk, pampas grass, and other nonnatives from these new project areas. Work will be conducted over a two-week period in October. To date, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services has awarded $55,300 for this project. The Southern California Wetlands Recovery Project granted $23,000 to this effort in 2016. In addition, the SDRVC will conduct Citizen Science surveys across the project site as part of the SDRVC Monitoring Program to collect valuable data documenting the use of the area by birds and other wildlife before and after nonnative invasive removal efforts. This will be accomplished through multiple walking surveys and use of wildlife camera traps on Funds, granted by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service through its Partners for Fish & Wildlife Program, will support the continuance of work on the restoration project.

Incumbent Horn endorses Desmond for board seat By John Weil
REGION — Incumbent Fifth District County Supervisor Bill Horn has endorsed San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond as his successor on the board. The endorsement comes nearly nine months before the primary election, when Horn will not run due to term limits. The office of county supervisor is seen as a non-partisan position. However, in recent years the battles for county supervisor have become more and more partisan. With land use development authority over the county unincorporated area, labor and pension issues and a huge multi-billion dollar budget, much is at stake. Horn’s district is largely unincorporated and covers nearly 1,800 square miles bounded roughly by Fallbrook to the north, Rancho Santa Fe to the south, Oceanside and Carlsbad to the west and Borrego Springs to the east and the cities of Vista and San Marcos. Cities within the district administer land use authority within their individual city limits.
Horn and Desmond are both Republicans. Desmond is running against Oceanside Councilman Jerry Kern, also a Republican, and Oceanside Councilwoman Esther Sanchez, a Democrat. “Mayor Jim Desmond shares my view that the supervisors must maintain the fiscally conservative policies that have made San Diego County one of the best managed and financially secure local governments in the nation,” Horn said. “Protecting the taxpayers will be his first priority.” Horn mentioned in a news release that addressing traffic, expanding the county’s library system and supporting the region’s agriculture industry are important to him. He also said Desmond “will address the particular concerns of the backcountry, one of the most critical roles of this office.” Horn was first elected to the county board in 1995 and was elected to a sixth four-year term in 2014. He and fellow supervisors Ron Roberts and Greg Cox are termed out of office in 2018.

The nutrient that gives life and can take it away Phillip M ilgram, M D, a local San Diego obstetrician and gynecological physician, spent the early part of his career helping excited mothers navigate through their pregnancy. After delivering thousands of healthy babies and sharing the joy of a new life with the expecting mother and father, he has shifted his focus towards life extension. According to Dr. M ilgram, and other researchers, there is one key nutrient that can give life, and dramatically decrease quality of life in it’s absence. What is the nutrient that every cell in your body relies upon? Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is a vitamin B coenzyme used to produce energy, facilitate cellular communication, repair DNA, turn off aging genes and revitalize the brain. This coenzyme has been used since the 1960s for detoxification from chemical dependen-
cies, and is notably famous for its ability to abolish cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Maintaining optimal levels of NAD is more difficult than one would think because pure NAD is not bioavailable through the digestive tract. Only the precursors to NAD, vitamin B3, nicotinamide mononucleotide and nicotinamide riboside, can be absorbed, but in limited amounts. The Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute recently discovered a link between vitamin B3 and it’s Dr. Milgram and researchers believe that NAD could be the key ingredient to reverse age and could help potential in reducing birth prevent many chronic diseases.

DEL MAR — When the Breeders’ Cup comes to town for the first time in a few months, the Del Mar Racetrack won’t be the only place to see horses running. Although the event, considered the Super Bowl of horse racing, includes only two days of racing, a series of activities are being planned for the week leading up to Nov. 3-4. The 35th annual Jake’s Del Mar Beach Fun Run will kick things off Oct. 28 with four horses leading the field when the race begins at 9:30 a.m. west of the beachfront restaurant. The horses will have professional riders aboard but will not be thoroughbreds and won’t run the entire 5K course.

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association and the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club have once again partnered to hold a Farm-to-Table Dinner at the historic Osuna Ranch. The first event was held in 2016. Association Assistant Manager Christy Whalen said that proceeds from the event will benefit the Osuna Adobe Restoration Fund and the Garden Club. The dinner is a fundraiser with all proceeds divided equally. “Last year’s event was a huge success,” Whalen said. “Tickets sold out within days of being advertised.” The Sept. 23 affair will showcase a family-style dinner made with locally sourced foods prepared by Root Cellar. “This event is a unique opportunity to enjoy fresh, local farm-to-table food in a beautiful, historical setting with friends and neighbors,” Whalen said. “Guests will enjoy dinner, live music, a silent auction and goods from locally sourced businesses.” Whalen also pointed out the Osuna Adobe was recently designated on the National Historic Register of Places, making the venue much more meaningful. Shelly Breneman, Garden Club executive director, said she recently had a Root Cellar tasting and the preview was fantastic. Live music, including Spanish guitarists will also take place. Breneman said new items are donated every day for the silent auction. “What makes this event so special is how it brings the community together for a common purpose,” Breneman said. “It’s also teaching people the concept of farmto-table, which goes along with the Garden Club theme of eating fresh, organic and healthy meals.” Before the dinner, a mini farmers market will be set up for guests. New this year are tasting stations for items including handcrafted vodka, beer, olive oil and honey. Event sponsors this year are Jennifer J. Janzen-

iFLY Indoor Skydiving opens for family fun By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — iFLY Indoor Skydiving opened for family fun Aug. 24. First to try out the facility were friends and family of the owner and VIP guests including city firefighters and pageant princesses. “Everybody truly enjoys it,” Christy Loiacono, iFLY director of sales, said. “It's an exciting, high-energy sport.” A mix of 3- to 80-yearolds were the first group to experience the sensation of flying inside the facility's massive vertical wind tunnel. Participants suited up in a one-piece jumpsuit, earplugs and helmet. One at a time they entered the flight chamber. First they were individually guided by an instruc-
tor to acclimate to laying belly-down and being suspended by forced air. Then they joined hands with the instructor and propelled together to the top of the chamber, which exceeds 40 feet.
Everybody truly enjoys it. It’s an exciting, high-energy sport.” Christy Loiacono Director of sales
Observing human flight was sensational. Experiencing it was described as magical. Jose Trimino, 80, of Arizona, is a regular at the iFLY facility in his home state. He said his first experience flying was initially a little shaky, but “once you got in everything was cool.” Trimino added that indoor skydiving is a sport where age does not matter. He said his experience that day was wonderful.
“I'd do it again, and again, and again,” Trimino said. Chris Leavitt, also from Arizona, tried indoor skydiving with his wife and two small children. “It's like flying,” Leavitt said. “It's a really cool feeling.” His 3-year-old son, Canaan, seemed equally impressed. The grand opening celebration included a ribbon cutting ceremony, food trucks, a deejay and a firsttime flyer discount. “There's a lot happening,” Loiacono said. The 5,000-square-foot facility was custom-built within a year. Giant propellers push air through the center of the flight chamber and keep people afloat. It is one of a couple dozen iFLY facilities in the world. IFLY Oceanside is geared toward family fun,
student field trips and corporate team building. Owner Rob Blomsness said he is also expecting high participation from area skydivers and military. Blomsness added he is pleased with the opening day turnout and the city’s warm reception. “I'm over the top excited,” Blomsness said. “There is a lot of community interest.” Visit Oceanside and Oceanside Chamber of Commerce have voiced strong support for the facility. Visit Oceanside president and CEO Leslee Gaul said it is exactly what the city needs to fit its sports tourism market. The business is expected to generate $5 million annually. “It's a great addition to Oceanside,” Councilman Jerry Kern said. iFLY Indoor Skydiving is located at 3178 Vista Way, just off state Route 78.

Local filmmaker makes big-screen debut By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — A new coming-of-age comedy by a local filmmaker is scheduled to debut at select AMC Independent theaters starting Sept. 1. USC Film alum Dylan Anthony Moran wrote, directed and is one of the featured actors in “Get Big.” Raised in Escondido, Moran, 24, now splits his time living in both Los Angeles and with his family in Rancho Santa Fe. Moran admits while in college, he set his sights on graduating and making a movie right away. “I was desperately trying to get a screenplay finished while I was in college,” he said, adding that it didn’t feel authentic. His initial direction of a film with action-packed car chases took a different turn. “It just didn’t feel real,” he said. “I remember going home one summer from college, and I was watching the movie ‘Clerks,’ and it’s just a really simple movie about a day in this guy’s life working in a convenience store. It was really entertaining.” Then it clicked. Moran had the realization that his first movie should be simpler and more in line with his budget. “Get Big” cost $250,000 to produce and was filmed in 14 days on location in Los Angeles. “I wanted to write about what my day-to-day life was like,” Moran said. “During that summer, it was about spending a lot of time with my high school friends and the guys that I grew up with.” And that’s how it all started. The screening had a

19 years old again, and just spending time with your friends,” he said. “It brought back a lot of memories for them.” Moran’s father, Anthony, who is a resident of Rancho Santa Fe, shared that his son had the rare gift of knowing what he wanted to do since he was a young child. “Dylan has worked hard and will find a way to tell his stories,” he said. “I am impressed with his movie. It is really difficult to create a quality feature-length film on a micro-budget.” Moran credits the people he worked with, such as his actors and producer David Rudd, for accomplishing what they did with what little they had. He also said that anyone who watches “Get Big “wouldn’t even know it was a micro budget film — it looks that great. “We didn’t have much to work with, but I think we made the most out of what we had,” Moran said. “I really do.” “Get Big” is the story of best friends Alec and Nate, played by Tanner Stine and Moran respectively.

A summer spent between book covers small talk jean gillette
he winds of the school year have blown my s u m me r t i me reading window closed, but I made the most of it, as always. I find no shame in admitting I spent many an afternoon, accomplishing precious little and deep in a book. I’d like to hand everyone a copy of the books I most enjoyed, but at least I will happily share the titles. My favorite read of the summer was “Delicious,” the first novel by chef and author Ruth Reichl. Friends have been recommending her books and I look forward to reading her earlier works. However, books like hers make me hungry and, worse, think I can cook. They are worth it. If you are looking for a sassy, spiritual lift, I recommend “Hallelujah Anyway,” by Anne Lamott. It’s about offering mercy, even when you really don’t want to. “Mrs. Saint and the Defectives” by Julie Lawson Timmer was a delightful surprise with a wonderfully original plot and quirky, lovable characters. It tells of unusual neighbors who bring joy into the protagonist’s life, in spite of her best efforts to avoid it. I also really loved “The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry” by Gabrielle Zevin. Fikry owns a bookshop on an island, which endears him to me immediately, but he’ll remind you a bit of “A Man Called Ove.” I indulged in two of R. Allen Chappell’s Navajo Nation Mystery series and have come to feel like I know Charlie Yazzi and his acquaintances. I caught up on No. 2, “Boy Made of Dawn,” and No. 3 “Ancient Blood,” having read the first in the series, “Navajo Autumn” a while back. I recommend them all. I wandered back into Ireland in 590 A.D. and reveled in the storytelling of Kristin Gleeson, with “In Praise of Bees.” It’s a fascinating historical novel and mystery rolled into one. For my sci-fi fix, I grabbed “Cinder” from my school library. It is the first of the Lunar Chronicles, a futuristic reworking of classic fairy tales, by Marissa Meyer, and pretty good reading for a young adult book. Cinder is a cyborg mechanic, considered a second-class citizen, who repairs a robot for the prince, and intrigue ensues. A really different, and

Here & there in the world of wine (& beer)
he New Oak + elixir Wine, Beer and Eatery in Carlsbad Village had its first wine event recently and columnist Frank Mangio met part-owners Annie Rammel and Rebecca Braun, who introduced Aviary wines of Napa Valley and Alpha Box & Dice from Australia. This beverage shop replaced RELM on State Street and is devoted to finding great discoveries. The Aussies brought in some low production, late year vintage pouring that set the tone for a new approach in Australia, low production with offbeat varietals like a 2016 Tarot Grenache from the McLaren Vale district ($17) and a 2015 Golden Mullet Fury white, also McLaren, with Semillon and Voignier ($20). The Aviary Cabernet from Napa Valley was even more incredible with a 2015 vintage ($19). The kitchen put together some flavorful small bites, with cheeses, charcuterie, flatbreads, sal-
ads and a lot more. A feature of Oak & elixir is the weekend “Happy Hour” from 4 to 6 p.m. Two dollars is taken off any glass on the menu. More than 30 wines are by the glass. See more at oakandelixir.com. The craft beer capital of America is now San Diego, home to more than 125 licensed breweries at the start of 2017. North County accounts for the most. Craft beer is a big, muscle business with more than $851 million in sales and 4,512 workers. According to San Diego Metro News, the largest brewery is Ballast Point, producing 300,000 barrels a year. It’s been on a tear since being bought out be Constellation Brands for $1 billion dollars in 2015. Cal State San Marcos now has “Brewchive,” a comprehensive exhibit of San Diego’s brewing history, in its library with signature collections. Learn more at brewchive.com. Wine Spectactor recently published a sympathetic article on Merlot,

funny science fiction adventure I stumbled on, is “We are Legion (We are Bob)” by Dennis Taylor. Software expert Bob Johansson gets killed crossing the street. He wakes up a century later to find his mind has been uploaded into computer hardware and becomes an interstellar probe joining a global battle to be the first to find
habitable planets. I hope you don’t have to wait until next summer to find time to check these out. I’m thinking early fall evenings, perhaps by the fire. Let someone else do the dishes.

taste of wine frank mangio tracing its downfall to a glut of the second most produced varietal in the mid 2000s and a stab in the back from the movie “Sideways” about 10 years ago. Sales plummeted to this day without recovery. A close look at the worldwide implications of Merlot reveals that it’s the most widely planted grape in France where it comes from, and in Italy, where it is used in the very popular Super Tuscan wines. The French prefer it on the right bank of the Bordeaux district, in Pomerol and St.-Emilon. Its most famous brand is Pe’trus where older vintages can be priced at $5,000 and up. A Napa Merlot that I look for is the Rombauer 2013 Carneros Merlot, rich and silky with smooth tannins ($30). Napa Valley’s Whitehall Lane teamed with Vittorio’s for a four-course dinner. Jordan Mungin of the Estates Group and Vittorio’s owner Victor Magalhaes presented the top shelf brand, Tre Leoni 2014 Red Blend ($25). See photo. The name represents three generations of the Leonardini family, owners of the winery. Get the full story at whitehalllane.com. Vittorio’s is in Carmel Valley off the 56 freeway.

The data also shows that Grauer students exceed all norms in being connected with their teachers, who focus on developing meaningful one-on-one relationships inside the classroom and during extracurricular activities, service projects and expeditionary learning trips. The school has 161 students enrolled and approximately 50 teachers and staff, which results in a teacher-student ratio of 7:1 in the average class.
