Disbarred local lawyer convicted in drug plot

Sidewalk work on El Apajo approved By Joe Naiman

A construction contractor will be providing sidewalk connections on three unincorporated San Diego County roads including El Apajo in Rancho Santa Fe. A 4-0 San Diego County Board of Supervisors vote Oct. 25, with Kristin Gaspar absent, authorized the advertisement for bid and subsequent award of a contract to connect existing sidewalks by paving the missing segments. In 2015 the county approved an Active Transportation Program grant agreement with the San Diego Association of Governments which resulted in the development of a pedestrian gap analysis to identify locations where connecting sidewalks would encourage pedestrian traffic. The locations were identified based on criteria including the condition of the sidewalk, pedestrian access, and community input. The connection project on El Apajo will construct new sidewalk on the north side of the street adjacent to the fire station. That sidewalk connection will improve pedestrian access to Solana Santa Fe Elementary School as well as to private schools and community centers on El Apajo. The total estimated cost which also includes connecting sidewalk segments in Bonita and Lakeside is $450,000. A prior-year balance in the county's road fund will be used for the contract expenses including administration. Because the areas where sidewalks will be installed are already used by pedestrians the new sidewalks will enhance safety but would not expand use to the point where environmental review would be required, and the supervisors' Oct. 25 action also found the projects categorically exempt from California Environmental Quality Act review. Traffic control measures will be implemented during the construction to limit impacts to community members and other travelers. The construction is expected to begin in early 2018 and be complete by summer 2018.

RANCHO SANTA FE — A disbarred attorney from Rancho Santa Fe who once represented accused-daughter-killer Casey Anthony remained jailed in Brooklyn awaiting sentencing after a jury convicted him of plotting to smuggle $13 million worth of cocaine from Ecuador to Central America and ultimately the United States. Todd Macaluso, 55, was convicted Nov. 3 in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn on one federal count of international cocaine distribution conspiracy, according to the New York Daily News. Prosecutors said the disbarred lawyer was planning to fly more than 3,000 pounds of cocaine valued at about $13 million aboard his Falcon 10 airplane and drop the illicit cargo in Honduras, where it would then be smuggled into the U.S., according to the Daily News and the San Diego Union-Tribune. The plan was for Macaluso to get $185,000 in TURN TO CONVICTION ON 7

Yonemitsu appointed to fill school district board opening By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — In a 4-0 vote on Oct. 23, members of the Rancho Santa Fe School District board named attorney Jon Yonemitsu to fill Marti Ritto’s seat. Ritto resigned on Sept. 13. Yonemitsu has three children attending R. Roger Rowe. On Oct. 16, the board interviewed five applicants — Yonemitsu, Kali Kim, Jee Manghani, Richard Shen and Elise Dufresne. The board took a week to make their decision. Board member Sarah Neal, however, said she hoped that another round of interviews could take

place before a one of the applicants was appointed. “I had a hard time picking one that stood up above the rest,” she said. “I would like to have the opportunity to have a second round of interviews.” Three of the five applicants were on Neal’s radar. She said a second round of interviews would be beneficial so that she could learn more about the potential board members’ priorities regarding school culture. “That was my takeaway,” she said.

Improv with Silverstone brings laughs By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Fun and laughter filled the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center on Oct. 20 during Monty Silverstone’s improvisation class. The quick delivery of lines was the goal at the complimentary class. Students were provided with an index card with one word — a word that served as the trajectory for a scene with a partner. Silverstone, the father of actress Alicia Silverstone, is a Rancho Santa Fe resident who has been teaching acting classes, particularly improv courses, throughout San Diego County. He is also on the board of directors at the Rancho Sant Fe Senior Center. Silverstone shared that seasoned and beginning actors come to his improv courses. He’s hosted these classes for more than a decade at the senior center. Silverstone said he had a penchant for acting when he was a young boy, but had to shelve that passion. “It was my dream to be an actor when I was a little boy,” Silverstone said. “I never got to do it because my parents had restaurants and I had to go and help them.” Silverstone’s career eventually evolved into real estate. What Silverstone likes most about the classes is his ability to help people.

“A lot of them (students) are in plays at their church or community theatre,” he said. “I would say 40 percent of the people that come to my classes over the years get jobs.” Many people who at-

tend Silverstone’s class aren’t professional actors. What they look for is more self-confidence when speaking. Silverstone said the three keys to communicating with others is to look at

the person speaking, listen to them and react to their words. Keep the mindset in the moment and not elsewhere with other ideas. It’s a challenge, Silverstone said, but it can be done. Silverstone wants people who aren’t actors who attend his improv classes to make new friends, get a job advancement or feel more at ease with public listening. As far as Silverstone is concerned, everyone can act because they have been acting all their lives. “If your hair looks horrible and you ask someone how they like your new hairstyle they may tell you it looks quite nice,” said Silverstone, laughing. The executive director of the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center, Terrie Litwin, describes Silverstone as an excellent teacher. “He has helped many people that didn’t think that they had any public speaking skills,” she said. “Many of them have gone on to perform in community theater and other places. Monty has been a real asset to the Senior Center.” Beginning on Dec. 9, Silverstone will offer a sixweek series of acting classes from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center. For more information on cost and space availability, call the Senior Center at (858) 756-3041.

Interstate animal rescue comes to Rancho Santa Fe RANCHO SANTA FE — Mike McCarthy, president and founder of Rescue Express Transport, of MGM Animal Foundation, a 501(c)3, has relocated his headquarters from Oregon to Rancho Santa Fe. Rancho Santa Fe welcomes Mike McCarthy and Rescue Express to the community as a new neighbor and friend of all animal lovers. His home and nonprofit headquarters moved from Oregon to a 6-acre horse property on Lago Lindo. McCarthy retired as a software entrepreneur and has been working with rescue groups for more than 20 years. Rescue Express transports 7,500 homeless animals annually to rescue groups in the Northwest. Additionally, Rescue Express helps transport animals who are displaced due to natural disasters, such as the 2016 Louisiana flooding and the Texas Hurricane Harvey of 2017. McCarthy started Rescue Express in 2015 after becoming dissatisfied with the methods and conditions used to transport animals from Southern California to Oregon. His transports are three Thomas school buses that he converted and outfitted to comfortably, safely and humanely relocate upwards of 200 animals on each trip. McCarthy plans to add new buses, routes

and partners. After the hurricanes and floods in the south, he is considering adding a base in Houston, with at least two new buses stationed there. A person cannot miss the red school buses with the sponsored pictures of pets painted in the windows as they travel from California to Washington. Since the inaugural run in February of 2015, Rescue Express has saved 12,000 animals via transport. The transport buses currently operate weekly along the west I-5 corridor with designated pick-up and drop-off locations in California, Oregon and Washington, however the impact spans north and south from Mexico to Canada and eastward to the central United States with a network of more than 250 rescue partners. Buses run every weekend from Rancho Santa Fe, transporting up to 200 animals per bus, at no cost to the sender or receiver. The actual cost to Rescue Express averages $20 per animal, LA to Seattle, with a projected 22,500 total animals transported by 2018. Rescue Express is a 501(c)3, public charity organization, tax ID #74-2946340. All donations to Rescue Express are tax deductible as allowed by IRS law.

Another big utility under suspicion in fire disasters California Focus By Thomas D. Elias As disastrous and deadly wildfires raged through once-lovely residential areas in the Wine Country and other Northern California points this fall, there were signs that the aftermath could play out similarly to a scene that began almost exactly 10 years earlier in Southern California. Loud claims were heard this time that negligent maintenance of power lines and poles, together with insufficient brush cutting near them by Pacific Gas & Electric Co., were among reasons for the fast spread of those flames, which consumed well over 8,000 homes and buildings and took several dozen lives. If that’s ever proven, one state senator demanded, PG&E should be broken up. Said Democrat Jerry Hill of San Mateo, a persistent thorn in utilities’ sides, “If we find that in this particular case – and we don’t know the cause yet – then frankly I don’t think PG&E should do business in California anymore,” he said. “They’ve crossed the line too many times,” he added, referring to the company’s federal negligence conviction in the multi-fatal 2010 San Bruno gas pipeline explosion. “They would need to be dissolved in some way, split.” Suspicions against PG&E result in part from what happened in October 2007, when winds up to 100 mph whipped arcing power lines owned by San Diego Gas & Electric Co., eventually starting a small fire near Ramona, in eastern San Diego County. Known as the Witch Creek Fire, this blaze grew exponentially and reached the San Diego city limits. It combined with two other fires, and burned down whole neighborhoods. More than 1,125 residences were destroyed as at least 197,000 acres burned in some of California’s highest-priced neighborhoods. Like this fall, evacuations were ordered over the almost three weeks those fires burned in places like Oceanside and Encinitas, Del Mar Heights and Carmel Valley, Rancho Santa Fe and the heavily afflicted Rancho Bernardo. The evacuations eventually involved about half a million persons, still the largest ever in this state. But nothing untoward happened to SDG&E afterward. In fact, the state Public Utilities Commission right now is evaluating a rate case that could have

Lower sentences for gun criminals? By Patricia Bates

The recent massacre in Las Vegas that claimed the lives of at least 59 people has again rekindled an emotional conversation on gun control. As a mother and grandmother, I grieve for those killed and pray for the recovery of the wounded. I share an interest in reducing gun violence as such violence has no place in our society. While people may disagree on the meaning of the Second Amendment, all Americans should be able to agree that any criminal who uses a gun to terrorize individuals, families or communities deserves the maximum sentence available. Given that the California Legislature has approved some of the nation’s most restrictive gun control laws in recent years, you would think that it would be the last place in America where a bill giving gun criminals a chance at receiving a lower sentence would be approved. Think again. I was very disappointed to learn that the governor recently signed Senate Bill 620, which will allow courts to dismiss penalty enhancements for criminals who use a gun, assault weapon, even a machine gun, while committing or attempting to commit a felony crime. I was hoping SB 620 would have been vetoed. We are all looking for ways to reduce gun violence, but why pass a law that would potentially give criminals who use guns a break? Currently, a criminal who personally uses a gun or assault weapon while committing a felony is subject to a penalty enhancement of 3, 4 or 10 years for using a firearm; or 5, 6 or 10 years for using an assault weapon or machine gun. The enhancement is on top of the sentence for committing the felony and is specifically intended to discourage the use of guns or assault weapons in crime. Allowing elimination of this penalty enhancement will allow criminals who choose to use a gun to commit their crimes and threaten our communities to potentially face lesser punishment. For some criminals,

Time for change in Del Mar I recently read an article from the San Diego Union Tribune - North Coast from Sept. 21, 2007, titled “City Manager is Moving on.” It was about the retirement of Lauraine Brekke-Esparza after 15 years as city manager of Del Mar. The article stated that Lauraine “guided the city through such community projects as the city’s purchase, financed in large part by residents, of an old church on Camino Del Mar for a new library; and the city and resident-funded renovation of

the additional sentence is the only thing keeping them from being eligible for early parole under Proposition 57 (2016), which increased parole and good behavior opportunities for some felons. To be fair, SB 620’s author has stated that felons are already facing long sentences for the crimes they committed and adding a penalty for choosing to use a gun to commit those crimes is merely making a long sentence longer. He believes that longer sentences are not a deterrent to crime. However, using a gun to shoot or threaten people while committing a felony is a very serious matter. It should be treated as such. It was odd to see a very progressive Legislature passing SB 620 this year. The Legislature has approved multiple laws in recent years restricting or banning how and what firearms law-abiding citizens may own. The authors of such laws say it is about keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals. Yet there is now a new law that allows elimination of the enhancement penalty when dangerous criminals use guns to commit their felonies. Don’t we want to make criminals think twice about using a gun to threaten people? SB 620 may cause harm to public safety. It is unclear why California would want to provide its judges with the option of removing the penalty enhancement of using a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. It is partly why the California District Attorneys Association and California State Sheriffs’ Association came out in opposition. In my view, the state took a step backwards in its efforts to reduce gun violence. Lesser penalties for gun criminals are not something you would expect from a state that prides itself on being anti-gun. Patricia Bates, R-Laguna Niguel, represents the 36th Senate District in the California Legislature, which covers northern San Diego and southern Orange counties. She is the Senate’s Republican Leader.

••• the 1920’s era Powerhouse into a community center. And all the while, Brekke-Esparza cultivated quite a fan base.” “When we talk to her, you feel like she really cares about your interests, and she does,” said one resident. Brekke-Esparza was “just as highly regarded within City Hall, where much of the role of city manager is coach to the elected officials and her staff.” A past councilman stated that she “taught council members to be calm, balanced and diplomatic.” The future of Del Mar needs a city manager who has all of these qualities: loved/

consumers pay 90 percent of the utility’s $379 million in fire-related costs. The PUC’s long history of favoring utilities over consumers suggests the company will get at least a good part of what it’s asking. Like PG&E, the San Diego company is obliged to serve fire-prone areas, so it says having customers pay 90 percent of its costs is consistent with past PUC rulings involving hazardous wastes and other problems. If PG&E’s equipment is eventually found to be a proximate cause for this year’s hugely destructive fires, don’t bet on it being punished any more heavily than it was over San Bruno, even if there proves to be truth to allegations that PG&E has helped stall a PUC effort to map where power lines pose the greatest wildfire risks. One newspaper’s review of documents from that mapping project showed utilities have repeatedly asked to slow down the effort, saying some proposed regulations would “add unnecessary costs to construction and maintenance projects in rural areas.” “The sad part,” Hill told one reporter, “is the (maps) didn’t arrive before these fires. … It’s an outrageous example of negligence by a regulatory agency.” For sure, with knowledge from the Witch Creek Fire long in hand, there should have been no delays in mapping utility line danger points all around California and forcing power companies to mitigate them. But that didn’t happen, and the strict new regulations likely to follow completion of the maps do not yet exist. Meanwhile, PG&E officials weren’t saying much about these issues, instead insisting they’ve focused on restoring power to the hundreds of thousands of residents who lost electricity and natural gas service during the Northern California firestorms. The bottom line is that the PUC will most likely be exposed again as lax in its regulation of major utilities in this state. It’s probably too late in Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration to expect him to suddenly start pressuring the commission to change course. But the next governor, to be elected in just under one year, should push major reforms, possibly even press to make PUC members elected officials and not political appointees.

Brick campaign raises funds for The Country Friends By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The brick entry leading up to the front doors of The Country Friends’ Consignment Shop tells a story. Each brick is dedicated to its Legacy Campaign while recognizing those who have devoted their time and talents. The Country Friends just sold its 100th brick. According to Deborah Cross, the president of The Country Friends, the Legacy Campaign began a couple of years ago, and the reasons were twofold. The first purpose was to pay off the group’s building construction loan and the second to create an endowment fund moving forward to maintain the building. The goal was to raise $1 million. “And we are about 15 percent there,” Cross said. “It takes time and a lot of effort.”

Cross shared that the Consignment Shop property was donated to The Country Friends many years ago. When it was time to expand the group redid the whole retail area. The Country Friends own the entire property, including the five rentals on site. “We’re able to pay our operating costs from our rental income from these properties,” she said. “Again, always with the objective of giving away more money.” Cross said her husband, Les, got very involved with the Legacy Campaign along with the organization’s chief financial officer, Janean Stripe. Cross pointed out that her husband was happy to lend his expertise as a former CEO. Past presidents of The Country Friends as well as the Art of Fashion chairs receive bricks. The Country

Friends is selling bricks at $300 for the smaller size and $600 for the next size up.

“You can dedicate these bricks to your family, children and pets,” said Cross, adding that people can personalize the Legacy endowment experience. Cross said the bricks enhance the entrance of the consignment shop. She described it as a conversation piece about The Country Friends and their goals. “The bricks are a great opportunity to start a conversation about The Country Friends and our Legacy Campaign,” she said. It took two years to have 100 bricks laid in their place. And there is plenty of room for more. The next goal is another 100. “We’re just going to keep continuing and running different kinds of campaigns and different kinds of events all about the Legacy Campaign,” Cross said. As far as Cross is concerned, there are a lot of reasons for people to be ex-

It can be challenging for this shy guy to really shine among his more outgoing doggy friends at the center, but Chance is a playful terrier/cattledog blend and at just 1-year-old and 35 pounds, he still has some growing to do. Will you be his chance? Chance is waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. His adoption fee is $172. He has been altered and is up-to-date on all of his vaccinations. As with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, he is micro-chipped for identification.

or fourth match. Tennis Channel will present live daily coverage. Vandeweghe, 25, of Rancho Santa Fe, is ranked a career-high No. 12 in the world. Her mother, Tauna, was a member of the U.S. national team in both swimming and volleyball, and her uncle is former NBA star Kiki Vandeweghe. Fed Cup is the world’s largest annual international team competition in women’s sport, with approximately 100 nations taking part each year. Vandeweghe reached the semifinals of both the U.S. Open and the Australian Open this year — her career-best Grand Slam

results. In New York, Vandeweghe upset world No. 1 Karolina Pliskova in the quarterfinals to become one of four American women in the semifinals, marking the first time all four women’s singles semifinalists had been American at the U.S. Open since 1981. In Australia, Vandeweghe upset three seeded players, including thenworld No. 1 Angelique Kerber. Vandeweghe also advanced to the quarterfinals of Wimbledon in 2015. She holds two WTA singles titles, both won in Den Bosch, Netherlands, in 2014 and 2016. She represented the U.S. in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio in women’s doubles.

cited about this campaign. For starters, The Country Friends is all about giving money to charities. “Every year, we zero out our books and give every penny we make away,” Cross said. And because their rentals allow The Country Friends to pay its operating costs, that means the group can give more money to those in need.

“Every net dollar we make at our events and from the consignment shop goes right back out to our funded charities,” she said. “By creating this legacy fund, we think we can probably get up to $250,000, $300,000 a year.” To learn more about The Country Friends and its Legacy Fund, visit TheCountryFriends.org or call (858) 756-1192.

Holiday treat floodgates have opened

A

s the holidays approach, I may have done a very foolish thing. How much will-power I can muster to fix it, remains to be seen. It was completely unintentional, truly, as I am trying to curb the sweet tooth that tends to rule my world this time of year. I was just flipping through TV channels for a lightweight show, to kill a little time. I stopped on the “Holiday Baking Championship.” I not only watched that episode, I have begun taping it. So where’s the problem, you ask? Well, at least it’s not as bad as when I stumbled over the home improvement channel. They made it look so simple, I got sucked in to a way-too-ambitious project. On this baking channel, at least, the chefs sometimes make mistakes, and the mess they make creating gorgeous treats is very visible. But that doesn’t stop me from risking blood-sugar-level havoc and tooth decay with my daydreams of the cookies and tarts and cakes I’d like to make over the next couple of months. Worse, it reminded me, in living color, how divine mini tarts, sugar cookies, gooey bars and homemade candy can taste. I had briefly lulled my sweet tooth into a healthy coma with all the lovely pears and grapes of this season. I was really rockin’ the pre-holiday diet, with almond butter being my big indulgence. Now, after watching the creation of dozens of cookies, and decadent cakes, I realized I was drooling. Suddenly, my sugar-free cupboards seemed desperately bare. I became a master at rationalizing why I could have just one frozen coffee drink, or one maple scone and, well, maybe just one jumbo chocolate muffin at church coffee hour — just to be polite, you know. It is a slippery and sugary slope, my friends. I am not sure I can wiggle back to the top before Jan. 1. The clincher is that my darlin’ daughter has moved in with us and she loves to bake. I fear I have already lost this battle. So brace yourselves. I expect I will be bringing boxes of goodies with me everywhere I go. It is on your head to eat the bulk of this stuff and save me from myself. I know — it’s a tiresome job, but you’ll make the sacrifice. Ladies and gentlemen, raise your forks.

Down the rabbit hole at annual Junior League Gala By Angela McLaughlin

RANCHO SANTA FE — Guests of the second annual Junior League of San Diego Gala ventured “down the rabbit hole” for a night of Alice in Wonderland-themed fun. Bedecked in Mad Hatter attire, attendees enjoyed a night of live and silent auctions, gourmet dinner, beverages, live music by San Diego-based group Calphonics and more. “We were so excited to be able to bring the community together to raise money for the Junior League’s mission-based programming,” said Jessica deLinde, 2017 Junior League of San Diego chairwoman. The fundraising event took place Nov. 4 at the Morgan Run Club and Resort in Rancho Santa Fe, with hundreds of people in attendance. “We support transition-age foster youth — the foster youth who are aging out of the foster system,” deLinde said. “We want to support the fight on human Jenna Novothy and Justin Gennock dressed in theme for the occasion, which trafficking in our city and develop the was held Nov. 4 at the Morgan Run Club and Resort.

Senator Toni Atkins received the award for authoring legislation protecting victims of human trafficking that was recently signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, as well as legislation to increase funding for affordable housing. Ann Hill received an award for her work as a JLSD sustaining member who celebrates more than 30 years of leadership within the organization. Dairrick Hodges, formerly of the foster care system himself, also received an award. He does a lot for the community and leads several local programs aimed toward helping transition-age foster youth, deLinde added. “The night was magical,” she said, adding that the event sold out and exceeded the night’s fundraising goals. “I am proud to be a member of an organization that celebrates volunteerism and is working hard to make a positive difference in our community.”

MiraCosta expands offerings of four-year degrees OCEANSIDE — For decades MiraCosta College has been a staple in North County for higher education, but it continues to evolve to best serve the community. “It’s really all about student choices,” MiraCosta College’s Al Taccone said. “We make the maximum effort to have as many choices as possible.” Taccone, the dean of the school of career education, is enthusiastic about the latest offerings from MiraCosta College known as the 2+2 programs. The programs are part of an ongoing partnership with Point Loma Nazarene University offering bachelor’s degrees in multiple disciplines. 2+2 programs are already in place in nursing, business administration and child development. Beginning in fall 2018, computer information technology will be the newest discipline to take part in 2+2. “2+2 allows students who complete their two-year degree at MiraCosta to earn their fouryear degree without ever having to leave campus,” Taccone said. “The students love it. For example, our nursing students are happy because so many schools are impacted and it’s difficult to get the classes you need to get a bachelor’s degree. At MiraCosta, nursing students are able to stay here and they don’t have to leave the area, or even the campus, to go to a four-year institution. It’s another option for them. They can seamlessly continue their education.” The savings offered by 2+2 programs are twofold. First, students are saving time. “Every

unit students take in our programs transfer. There are no wasted units, and no extra classes to take,” Taccone said. Secondly, the programs allow students to earn a private institution education, at about half the tuition of a traditional Point Loma Nazarene student.” The 2+2 program for business kicked off this fall at MiraCosta and Taccone is excited about the opportunity it provides for the students. “One huge plus for our students is that if they complete their four-year business degree with us in partnership with Point

Loma Nazarene, they will be accepted into their excellent MBA program,” he said. “Their MBA program has AACSB accreditation, which is very prestigious. We are so pleased that all of the units business students earn at MiraCosta are accepted at Point Loma Nazarene. It’s further validation of our two-year program.” A business degree is a valuable asset in the job force, especially in San Diego. “A bachelor’s degree in business can prepare students for a variety of careers,” he said. “A four-year business degree can lead to a career in any

area that involves management and marketing. It is also excellent for entrepreneurship. San Diego is very much driven by small business.” The four-year computer information technology program is set for next fall, and is just one more step forward for MiraCosta in that discipline. “Our computer studies and computer information technology programs went through large curriculum revisions this year, and we are now really centering around networking and cyber security,” Taccone said. “There is huge growth in information secu-

rity right now. In 2016 there were 817 new jobs created in that occupation in San Diego. By 2021, there should be about 900 new jobs. The growth creates many opportunities for students for high-paying jobs, even with a two-year degree.” Cyber security analyst, ethical hacking and computer forensics are just a few of the directions one can go with a computer information technology degree. While students enrolled in 2+2 programs enjoy many benefits of remaining at MiraCosta to earn their four-year degrees, Taccone is quick to point out that they don’t have to sacrifice support services to do so. “Students have the same support services available to them as they would on the Point Loma Nazarene campus,” he said. “They have permanent full-time staff right here on campus.” Point Loma Nazarene also has a counselor at MiraCosta to guide current and prospective students on earning their four-year degree. The 2+2 programs are open to all students with two-year degrees who meet certain GPA requirements. “If you don’t meet the requirements, Point Loma Nazarene will reach out to you and help you get there,” Taccone said. “Every student has the chance to get in, and they work to find a way to ensure that they do. Point Loma Nazarene is very much hands on with the students.” For more information about MiraCosta College’s 2+2 programs, contact MiraCosta Costa Career Education at (760) 7956811 or visit miracosta.edu.

5 Ways Technology Can Get Your Home Ready for the Holidays The holidays can be many things: magical, family-filled and joyful, or hectic, busy, and stressful. This year, use technology to simplify your life so you can spend more time on the things that matter. Here are five ways technology can prepare you for the busy season ahead. 1. Automatic Lights and Thermostat Settings. Fall may mean earlier sunsets, but you don’t have to come home to a dark home. With Cox Homelife, you can turn lights on and off remotely using your smartphone, or program them to turn on and off at certain times each day, even your porch light for that added security. And if you can’t remember whether you turned

off the heater or coffee pot before you left the house, Cox Homelife allows you to control your thermostat and small appliances remotely.

in town, always make sure your network is secured and password protected. An unsecure network could open you up to potential hackers or allow others to use up your plan’s data. It’s better to give your guests your password while they’re in your home than unknowingly give strangers down the street access to your WiFi.

Neal asked the other board members how they felt about the issue. Board member Scott Kahn that said that while that was interesting element, from a logistical standpoint, he had two trips scheduled. He preferred an appointment right away. Kahn also said he didn’t need additional time to decide. “I was really impressed with the quality and diversity of individuals,” said Kahn, adding that they complemented the existing board members. Kahn also noted it was nice to see applicants with children at R. Roger Rowe who were in higher and lower grades as well children who would start there soon. At the meeting was Richard Courier, school district attorney. He indicated that an appointment had to be made

within 60 days of receiving Ritto’s resignation letter Board President Todd Frank said he didn’t need more time to appoint a new board member. “I’m ready today,” Frank said. Board member Tyler Seltzer also agreed that he was ready to choose one of the applicants. He encouraged the other applicants that were not chosen as the new board member to please stay involved in the school. Seltzer made the motion to nominate Yonemitsu and all the others agreed. Neal echoed the same, saying how Yonemitsu was one of the three applicants she wanted to have in her proposed round of interviews in the board had agreed to it. Following the 4-0 vote, Superintendent David Jaffe swore Yonemitsu into his new position.

Macaluso was disbarred after his 2014 guilty plea to wire fraud in a San Diego federal court saw him sentenced to five months in federal prison. He was also ordered to pay $150,000 restitution and a $100,000 fine in that case, in which he forged the signatures of clients and stamps of notary publics to hide a fraud scheme. Authorities arrested Macaluso in Haiti last November as he and two co- defendants finished their plans to fly to Ecuador and then Honduras,

federal prosecutors said. The other two men pleaded guilty prior to trial, but Macaluso took his case to a jury for a weeklong trial that started Oct. 30. The jury deliberated for just an hour before returning the guilty verdict. “Mr. Macaluso was disappointed with the verdict but looks forward to being vindicated in future proceedings,” his attorney, Michael Gold, told the Daily News. Macaluso rose to prominence as a personal injury lawyer and represented Anthony in 2009-10. The Florida mother was acquitted in 2011 of murdering her 2-year-old daughter. Macaluso was out of federal prison on supervised release

at the time of his arrest last year. An experienced pilot, Macaluso had filed for bankruptcy after his previous legal troubles and was working as a pilot after he was disbarred. Federal prosecutors said drug traffickers contacted Macaluso while he was working flying wealthy clients to a Mexican resort where he owns property. He allegedly made his way to Haiti last November without the required approval from his probation officer, then planned to fly to South America to pick up the drugs. Instead, Haitian law enforcement arrested him and his co-conspirators, and they were sent to New York to face the federal charges. — City News Service

RSF School District board tackles energy storage By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — As power rates continue to climb, the Rancho Santa Fe School District continues to discuss alternative ways to save money. During the Oct. 5 monthly school board meeting, Superintendent David Jaffe introduced Bradley Johnson, director of finance, to present his research on battery storage solutions. The topic was not a new one for him, Johnson said. At a former school district, he helped bring on a battery storage company to mitigate the high costs of electricity usage. “I thought it would be nice to check and see if this would be an opportunity for a company to come in and look at our utility usage,” Johnson said, “and to see if there’s an opportunity for implementing some type of intra-storage system to reduce costs.” Johnson pointed some of the components to a utility bill including the specif-

ic charges that take place during the higher peak times during the day, particularly in the mid- to late afternoon hours. During this timeframe, more electricity is being used, mainly if air conditioning units are on. The theory behind the storage is that batteries, which are usually lithium-ion batteries, get their power in the evening when the rates are lower. After the energy is stored, it can be used during the day. Energy usage during peak times means customers are paying more to use energy. However, a customer could shave those highpeak costs if there was an energy storage solution in place. Johnson said there are potential opportunities for the district to save money. Two energy battery storage solutions are a direct purchase option as is a power efficiency agreement. In the first scenario,

the district would pay money up front to procure the battery storage units. “Each year, you have ongoing operations and a software maintenance fee that you wind up paying on,” Johnson said. Johnson also wanted the board to know about incentives that the state of California provides some school districts and government entities. It offers some funding to reduce a portion of those initial up-front costs. A power efficiency agreement is when a company comes in at no cost to the district. “Essentially, we are allowing them space to provide batteries to the district, and they essentially get a shared savings of whatever we wind up saving,” he said. “So, the over-

all savings to the district is less, but again we have nothing out of pocket.” Board member Sarah Neal said that while one of the priorities of the district is to be more energy efficient, she’d like to see more of a strategic planning process by way of having a more in-depth conversation about district goals. She did say how it was good to learn about technology as it evolves. Board member Scott Kahn asked Johnson to look at the new SDG&E rate schedule. His concern was that any numbers Johnson had were based upon the current rate schedule and the new rates could very well be less favorable. The school board thanked Johnson and asked that he continue his research on the matter.

Woodward offers help to homeless with pets RANCHO SANTA FE — Helen Woodward Animal Center kicked off its Pets Without Walls — its latest program dedicated to the mission of “People helping animals, animals helping people.” The program will provide pet food, vaccinations, spays and neuters, pet supplies and additional items and services as needed, to the dogs and cats who reside with homeless families at the city’s industrial tent site. Chain restaurant operator and partner at Paradigm Investment Group LLC, Dan Shea, approached Helen Woodward Animal Center about the current massive efforts being made to improve the lives for the local homeless. Helen Woodward Animal Center began its partnership Nov. 7 with the first of its bi-week-

ly visits. The center’s program, “Pets Without Walls” will provide health checks, microchipping, preventative medical care, important vaccinations, flea and tick medication and pet food (through an extension of its AniMeals program). In the current location, Helen Woodward Animal Center will assist approximately 25 dogs and a few cats, but with the opening of the structure, the number of pets is anticipated to reach more than 200. In addition, the center has offered to provide pet beds and toys, as well as human clothing and blanket donations from its Orphaned Objects resale store, and its Humane Education program has volunteered to provide fun and educational lessons and crafts to the children in residence.

Local woman named PETA’s ‘sexiest vegan over 50’ By Patty McCormac

OCEANSIDE — Erin Riley-Carrasco more than fits the picture of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ sexiest vegan over 50 years old. At almost 54, she is gorgeous. Her skin radiates health and she is filled with glowing energy. The Oceanside resident beat out candidates from across the nation for the honor. Still, she does not view it as a beauty contest but as a platform from which she can advance her passion for a vegan lifestyle. And she is passionate. Riley-Carrasco explains that her health is one reason to be a vegan, but it is more her love and respect for animals as living beings with feelings and with lives of their own. She has been a PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) member since age 19 and she has done her share of standing on street corners waving placards sticking up for animals that can’t sick up for themselves. “You can’t love animals and eat them. How can you love dogs and eat pigs which studies show are more intelligent than dogs,” she said. “What gives us the right to torture, mutilate and eat their flesh? It does not sit well with my soul.” In addition, she said she is horrified at the drugs given to cattle and pigs to encourage growth and discourage infection from the filth in which they live. And its not just meat, she said. Milk and dairy products are filled with the same antibiotics and drugs. Think chicken is safe? Nope. They too are filled with the stuff, she said. Fish? Not as healthful as you think and for many of the same reasons. The solution, she said, is to adopt a vegan lifestyle. In fact, she believes that if everyone became vegan, most of the world’s problems would fade away. She said that it is cows, not automobiles that emit the most greenhouse gases. “We don’t have a back-

up planet,” she said. And that world hunger could be solved if veganism was embraced by the rest of the world. Then instead of poor countries growing and selling their grain to countries that raise cattle for food, they could eat their own grain and thrive. She works tirelessly on behalf of animals. As part of a group, she and others have helped ordinances be passed in seven San Diego County cities that pet shops can sell only pets from shelters and not puppy mills. They are celebrating SB 485 signed recently by Gov. Jerry Brown that prohibits puppy mill puppies being sold at any pet store in the state. “Erin is the most deserving person in the whole wide world to win this. She lives it. She walks the walk,” said Suzie Williamson, her lifelong friend. “She lives by example.” Williamson, who farms in Mexico, has her own project of neutering and spaying stray dogs which are plentiful in her town of Vizcaino. She has been responsible for the procedures of about 1,000 dogs. Riley-Carrasco is almost an Oceanside native having arrived at age 4. She went to Oceanside schools and then to San Diego State University. In 1989, she

opened her dance studio, Dance Unlimited which has become a fixture on Oceanside Blvd. She beat a rare from of adrenal cancer, having passed her fifth year cancer free recently and she credits her diet. Although she had only a 30 percent chance of survival, she refused to give up. “I am a wife, mom and business owner. I had so much more to contribute.” While she was undergoing treatment, she took the time to study food. And although she was already a vegetarian, she learned much more about how food affects a body and

Riley-Carrasco said she was completely surprised to be chosen the sexiest vegan because her husband entered her without her knowledge. In addition to advancing her passion, she also won a 10-day Caribbean holistic cruise with people who are like minded. She recommends two documentaries, both available on Netflix: “What the Health,” and “Forks over Knives.” Sea in the early 1960’s. She was drawn to the coastal Self Realization Fellowship having previously been a devotee in Los Angeles in 1958. Irene and Rupert purchased land in Olivenhain and built and established the Olivenhain Guest Home. They created a sanctuary for the elderly needing assistance. Over thirty years, Irene created a place of respite amidst rose gardens, organic vegetable gardens, and loving care, in a tranquil environment. She had many talents, spending her free time creating beautiful art work of various media. She never wasted a minute. She will be remembered fondly for her strength of character, her work ethic and embracing the beauty and spirituality of life. She is survived by her daughter, Eva Engelsberger of Encinitas.

ENCINITAS — While most of the attention on the reluctant transition to district elections has been on cities, school districts have also faced similar decisions. The region’s largest high school district, San Dieguito Union, has moved swiftly to make the transition to district-based election, even though it was not one of the jurisdictions threatened with legal action by the Malibu-based law firm responsible for most of the recent decisions. The school district on Sept. 27 preemptively entered the 90-day “safe harbor” — which gives an agency three months to make the change without being sued — to avoid the legal threat that has ensnared nearby jurisdictions, such as Encinitas, Carlsbad and Oceanside. “Our school district would not have pursued this path if we had not felt threatened by the possibility of receiving a letter from Attorney Kevin Shenkman threatening a lawsuit, as several of our neighboring districts already have,” board mem-

ber Beth Hergesheimer said. “I believe we will be able to make this process work, but I am unaware of any prior or existing issues regarding whether board members have been adequately representative of the diversity within our communities,” she said. So far, the district has held three meetings in the process, with three more scheduled for Nov. 16, Nov. 28 and Dec. 14. The district is scheduled to release the draft district maps this week. As of this week, there hasn’t been a lot of public input on the district plans, Hergesheimer said. “To date we have had very little public response, but we expect that once the maps are available we will see more input from the public,” she said. Once created, proposed maps will be posted on the district’s website at cvra.sduhsd.net.

A hiker’s challenge: Coast to Crest Trail Adventurers are invited to trek more than 55 miles of trail along the San Dieguito River By Angela McLaughlin

REGION — From mountain summits to intertidal lagoons, hikers come from near and far to trek through the wilderness areas of Southern California. The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy was determined to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings and motivate people to experience more of them by beginning the Coast to Crest Challenge in July of this year. Running through June 30 next year, adventurers will have the opportunity to hike five specific trails within the Coast to Crest Trail system for a chance to win prizes for completing all of them. Hikers may tackle the trails in any order, but they must be completed before the deadline. The five trails include: San Dieguito Lagoon, Del Dios Gorge, Clevenger Canyon South, Volcan Mountain and Bernardo Mountain. “We picked these five specific trails because they represent the diversity of the 55-mile-long (as the crow flies) River Park — from urban areas to more remote locations,” said Trish Boaz, executive director of San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy. Described as some of the “most iconic spots,” the trails take hikers through a vast array of habitats and terrain, offering prime wildlife viewing opportunities along with the adventure of the hikes themselves. According to the conservancy, “The intertidal marsh habitat at the San Di-

eguito Lagoon is among the most rare and threatened habitat in California.” And this is just one of the locations trekkers will have the chance to experience. Volcan Mountain, on the other hand, is the headwaters of the San Dieguito River, and offers a summit of 5,300 feet — from low to high, visitors

will experience it all. Since initiating the challenge, 84 people have successfully completed the task — including two dogs. And Boaz says they would love to get that number up to 100 before the end of December. “We want to get people outside to discover the beautiful landscapes in our backyard,” Boaz said. “Many of the people who have completed the challenge made the comment that they never knew places like this existed in San Diego and want to share their experiences with

their families and friends. That’s why we refer to them as ‘SDRVC Champions.’” Each trail has a designated “selfie” spot, where hikers must photograph themselves to show they’ve completed the journey. Once all five hikes have been ac-

complished and photos have been verified, participants will receive a special certificate and decal, along with $10 in Adventure Bucks from A16, a 20 percent discount coupon from REI and TURN TO TRAILS ON 17

Massive new curated antique and vintage marketplace opens on the coast in South Oceanside! OCEANSIDE — “South Oceanside is buzzing with activity,” Brandon Vega said. “When we came up with the concept for Sea Hive, we wanted to create a fresh take on the traditional antique mall, and be a part of that buzz.” By all accounts the owners of Sea Hive Marketplace, which opened its doors in August, have succeeded. The nearly 13,000-square-foot space Sea Hive calls home has more than 100 vendors displaying vintage, modern, antique and artisan made items. A visit is best described as a shopping experience rather than a trip to the store, partly due to its size, but also because of the vibe and the extensive and ever-growing inventory. Customers will recognize many former staff and vendors from the beloved, now-closed Solana Beach Antique Warehouse. Vega describes Sea Hive describes as “the Antique Warehouse on steroids.” “We want to give our customers the most exciting and enjoyable experience possible,” Vega said. “We have screened and hand-selected each vendor from all over San Diego, L.A. and Orange counties. Many of them were previously selling at the Antique Warehouse. Our inventory has something for everyone. From comic books

News of the Weird Traditions The 72nd annual Yellville (Arkansas) Turkey Trot, which took place on Oct. 14, is famous for its Turkey Drop, in which live turkeys are dropped from a low-flying airplane and then chased by festivalgoers. This year, KY3.com reports, several turkeys were dropped during the afternoon despite animal-rights activists having filed a formal complaint with the sheriff's office, saying the pilot "terrorized" the birds. But pharmacist and past pilot Dana Woods told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette: "We treat the turkeys right. That may sound ironic, but we don't abuse those turkeys. We coddle and pet those turkeys. We're good to them." Wild turkeys can fly, but in 2016, about a dozen turkeys were dropped and not all survived the fall. According to The Washington Post, over the past several years, local sponsors and the chamber of commerce have distanced themselves from the Turkey Drop, now more than five decades old. The Federal Aviation Administration is checking to see if any laws or regulations were broken, but said it has not intervened in past years because the turkeys are not considered to be projectiles. [KY3.com, 10/15/2017; Washington Post, 10/13/2017]

and skateboards, to vinyl records and vintage toys, whether you’re looking for a baby shower gift, a wedding ring, or a unique piece of art to add to your collection, this is the place to find it.” “Our inventory is extremely diverse,” Jen Zoutendyk, the store manager said. “We have classical antiques, new and vintage clothing and accessories, art, furniture, collectibles and much more. We are also very proud of our jewelry selection. We have everything from fine, new and antique jewelry with diamonds, gold, platinum and gemstones from every era, to designer costume jewelry such as Chanel and Dior. We also have a large selection of sterling and Native American turquoise jewelry.” Fans of serendipity will appreciate how Sea Hive came to be. The line from Vega’s career in Los Angeles in choreography to here was not a straight one. “I had also been selling classic cars, and then the economy tanked,” he said. “My wife is an aerospace engineer, and

’Tis the Season Could turkeys be sensing the peril of the season? Police in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, tweeted a warning to the town's residents on Oct. 15 about aggressive wild turkeys, WBZ-TV reported. As proof, an accompanying video showed four turkeys chasing a Bridgewater police cruiser, but police were not as amused as their Twitter followers. "Aggressive turkeys are a problem in town," the department tweeted. "State law doesn't allow the police or (animal control) to remove them." [WBZ-TV, 10/17/2017]

Down the line when he saw the space was for lease he partnered with Todd Stephenson, owner of the Estate Sale Warehouse in Oceanside, a well-known face in the area and the industry. Karen’s Consignment Gallery owner Rob Murray soon joined them, and a new business partnership was formed. But it all began with the space itself. Many had wondered what would eventually end up in the building that was originally a 1950s garage. “The reason I called about the building to begin with is because I had a huge crush on it,” Vega said of the former 1950s garage with modern architecture. The community has embraced what Sea Hive brings to the area. “The response has been overwhelming,” Vega said. “We get a lot of positive feedback

a man donning food-service gloves and starting a pot of water to boil before hammering open the cash register. He secured $100 in his pockets, leaving a dollar in the tip jar, then started "cooking up a storm," owner Will Colon told Newsday. Cameras recorded as the thief cooked beans, sauteed shrimp and chicken, and helped himself to a cold soda before enjoying his meal standing up. "The way he handled that pan, man, the dude had some skills," Colon said. Afterward, he carefully stored the leftovers in the refrigerator, cleaned his pans and wiped down all the surfaces he had used. Then he took off through the back window, the same way he had come in. [Newsday, 10/4/2017] People Different From Us -- In Lissone, Italy, 40-year-old fitness instructor Laura Mesi made news when she married herself in late September. "I told my relatives and friends that if I had not found my soul mate, I would marry myself by my 40th birthday," Mesi said, according to The Independent. She spent more than 10,000 euros ($11,700) for the occasion, which included a white wedding dress, a threetiered cake, bridesmaids and 70 guests. Mesi is part of a self-marrying movement dubbed "sologamy" that has followers all over the world. Her marriage holds no legal significance. "If tomorrow I find a man to build a future with, I will be happy, but my happiness will not depend on him," Mesi declared. [The Independent, 9/27/2017]

-- An anonymous collector from Palm Beach, Florida, was the winning bidder in an Oct. 11 online auction for a half-smoked cigar that British Prime Minister Winston Churchill enjoyed during a 1947 trip to Paris. AP reports the 4-inch cigar remnant brought just over $12,000 in the auction managed by Boston-based RR Auction. The company says Churchill smoked the cigar on May 11, 1947, at Le Bourget Airport. A British airman, Cpl. William Alan Turner, kept the cigar after he and his crew flew Churchill and his wife between Paris and London. The label on the Cuban stogie includes Churchill's name. [Associated Press, 10/12/2017] Least Competent Criminal Greensburg, Pennsylvania, police made a traffic stop on Oct. 19 and found drug paraphernalia in plain sight on the car's front seat. When police asked where the occupants had obtained the heroin found in the center console, they said they had bought it from someone named Cody in the maternity ward at the Excela Health Westmoreland hospital in Greensburg. Officers arrested Cody R. Hulse, 25, at the hospital after he admitted to possessing and selling heroin just feet away from his newborn daughter. The Tribune-Review reported that police found 34 stamp bags of heroin, four empty bags and multiple hypodermic needles in Hulse's possession. "I have an issue myself with drugs ... heroin," Hulse told them. "I really didn't want to bring it in." Hulse's

girlfriend, the mother of the newborn, said she did not know he was selling drugs from the room. [Tribune-Review, 10/20/2017] Crime Report Coroner's pathologist Elmo A. Griggs, 75, was arrested Sept. 12 in Morgan County, Indiana, for drunken driving, but it was what was rolling around in the back of his pickup truck that caught officers' attention. Along with a half-empty vodka bottle, Griggs was transporting several labeled totes, according to the Indianapolis Star, containing organic material. Marshal Bradley K. Shaw of the Brooklyn Police Department said early investigations showed the totes contained brain and liver samples. Griggs' wife posted on Facebook that he "had a bad day and had a couple of drinks before driving home," but court documents revealed he failed all field sobriety tests.

all the bragging rights they can handle — not to mention the fact that they’ve had a chance to visit some pretty amazing places. More information may be found at www.sdrvc. org /coast-to-crest-trailchallenge. “We do not want the San Dieguito River Park to be the best kept secret in San Diego,” Boaz said, adding that they want people of all skill levels and abilities to enjoy the trail, whether hiking, biking, on horseback or in other ways. As with most outdoor activities, it is important to exercise caution — bring enough water for everyone in the hiking party, a first aid kit and sunscreen. It is recommended to hike with a companion or to let someone know where you will be traveling. The Coast to Crest Challenge offers not only the motivation to get out and move, but the opportunity to visit some breathtaking wilderness areas. “By listening to the sounds of the birds and the wind, seeing wildlife and smelling the sage, we want their appreciation for the outdoors, nature and the environment to grow,” Boaz said.

Pala Casino broke ground in October on a $170 million expansion, including a new 349-room hotel tower and aquatic playground. Three Indian casinos have drawn major reinvestment recently to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. Courtesy drawing

North County casinos hit boom times By Bill Peterson

REGION — Re-investent in casinos is about as common as casinos themselves. After all, who wants to play in a dumpy, old casino? “Gaming in most markets is a very competitive industry,” said Bill Bembenek, CEO of Pala Casino Spa & Resort. “For that reason, in competitive markets such as Southern California, it is true that gaming companies typically reinvest in their properties in rather significant ways on average every five to 10 years.” However, Bembenek said, what’s happening with the Indian casinos in the San Diego area right now, particulary in the North County, is not that garden

variety of re-investment. This is booming business. Seven of the San Diego area’s 10 casinos either are upgrading now or recently opened an upgrade. Estimates put the total value of these capital improvements at about $1 billion. An eighth San Diego-area casino, Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego, celebrated its one-year anniversary in October. Leading the way are the three North County casinos — Pala, Valley View Casino and Harrah’s Resort Southern California. Pala broke ground last month on a $170 million improvement, which will add a 349-room hotel tower and an aquatic playground while

increasing parking and casino floor space. The addition comes on the heels of a $50 million improvement to add a new stage at its Starlight Theater (which has a wine cave buried beneath it) and a new outdoor entertainment venue and restaurant named Luis Rey’s on Pala’s back terrace. Valley View Casino has announced plans for a $50 million expansion project that will increase its casino size by more than 42,000 square feet while adding a beer-and-burger themed restaurant. Harrah’s Resort Southern California recently added a craft brewery and a larger spa, salon and barber shop in a $160 million over-

haul. Put that all together, and it’s about $430 million in improvements just for the three North County casinos. “Each of the North County casinos and each of the casinos in San Diego County have their own unique attributes that differentiate them from one another,” Bembenek said. “What is great for Southern California gaming consumers is that the casinos in Southern California are some of the most up-to-date and well run casinos in the U.S.” None of the casinos discloses proprietary information, such as traffic numbers and gaming participation, but the impetus for the improvements is clear.

“It is evident that visitation to casinos in Southern California has increased over the past five years,” Bembenek said. “Part of this visitation increase is a result of improved consumer confidence, improved employment rates and a stable and improved housing market in So Cal compared to 2008-2010.” With increased casino activity and expanded casinos comes expanded employment. Valley View CEO Bruce Howard said the improvements in his casino will include about 80 new jobs. Pala’s upgrade will add 200 resort jobs, a 10 percent staff increase. That’s in addition to 400 construction jobs. “We are always looking for new ways to enhance our guests’ experience,” Howard said. “This expansion and renovation will be the perfect way for our guests to enjoy dining and gaming at the highest level.” What is especially interesting about the casino expansions is that they’re not, generally, driven by tourism. It is, by and large, local customers and local money. “We are a regional gaming resort destination and predominately serve Southern Californians,” Bembenek said. “We have guests who visit us from out of state, as well. But again, we are focused on offering the best casino resort experience possible to Southern California residents.” He added that many of their guests also visit Las Vegas. The point, though, is that they don’t have to.

Kitaro brings audio-visual experience to San Diego REGION — Japanese performer and composer Kitaro will bring an elevating audio-visual experience to North America with his performance of “Kojiki and The Universe” next month in San Diego, the first stop on his upcoming West Coast tour. The show weaves tracks from his most recent album, “Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai (Volume 5),” with photographs and real-time video of deep space. The show was developed with material provided by NASA and Kyoto University. The performance is 8 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Garfield Theatre, 4126 Executive Drive in La Jolla. Tickets start at $55. The New Age artist spoke about his work: Q: How long have you been interested in astronomy/space? A: Ever since I was child I have been very interested in space and the universe. I looked to the stars and wondered what was out there. Was it intelligent life? Was there ever water on Mars? The solar system, the planets and their relationship to Mother Earth has always fascinated me. Now, I have an opportunity to explore and work with space by creating sound waves through it.

that talks about the creation of this world. Kojiki talks about the creation of Japan, and the Universe as it was known to those people living at that time. I feel that it is only appropriate these visuals of our known universe are presented. This DVD is based on the version of the Kojiki myth written 1300 years ago. The images presented on the DVD were selected based on inspiration from my Kojiki music. The Kojiki myth is a story closely related to the universe describing the origin of Heaven and Earth. Part of the myth is interpreted as a Grammy-winning artist and com- description of an ancient soposer Kitaro will perform at the lar eclipse. Garfield Theatre in La Jolla on Nov. 16. Courtesy photo

and music have similarities in that they both inspire our imagination. In 2012, the first annual solar eclipse to be observed in Kyoto, Japan in 282 years was going to occur. Journalist Ms. Sachiko Tamashige brought me to Kwasan Observatory at Kyoto University to meet Professor Kazunari Shibata. He gave me a tour of the observatory including the oldest actively used telescope in Japan, the Sartorius telescope. It was at this time that I agreed to perform a collaboration at Kyoto University on the day of the annual solar eclipse in May 2012. It was then that Kojiki And The Universe, an experiment in merging music and movies of the universe was born.

Q: What was the inspiration to merge your music with these visuals? A: Visual images of the universe have many different elements: color, movement, Q: Why did you choose etc. By using a telescope, we can actually see the stars and Kojiki as the album to pair with these visuals? Nebula in the universe. A: Kojiki is a well-known I believe that the distant images of the universe mythological story in Japan

Q: Do you see this concert as a story being told, or more of an assembly of images to convey an emotional or spiritual message? A: During the concert, each song has a theme and a relating visual. I feel that’s the reason it works so well – because there’s a balance between the music and the visual movements. Music has many meanings. Through music’s sound waves, it communicates and talks to people. This combination of music and sound works well and is very powerful. The concert is definitely the story of the Kojiki myth being told through music and visuals. All of the images we present are important from the viewpoint of astronomical research which makes this film project a useful introduction to modern astronomy. I hope people will enjoy the presentation and concert as Kojiki interprets the story of the universe with beautiful music. Q: I know the Ku-Kai series began after 9/11, in the last fifteen years the message of peace seems to still be elusive in the U.S., what do you do to keep peace in your life and what can we do to bring peace into our collective lives? A: I see so much conflict and fighting in the world today. I started the Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai series as part of my 88 Temples Peace Bells project. The point of this project is to promote, “inner peace” which I believe will help to bring about World peace. For me, peace comes from the creative process and my connection with nature through my music and photography. I enjoy the recording process and touring the world. It brings me peace to know that my music is a source of enjoyment and often times relaxation for my fans which I hope will bring them inner peace. Q: Wikipedia says you relocated to Sebastopol in 2007, are you still in the North Bay? What led you to live up here (i'm in Santa Rosa) and what are your feelings about it here, what do you like about the region, etc? A: Yes, I still live in the North Bay. It's a powerfully spiritual area and I like living here.

Pittsburgh: From Smoky City to gleaming metropolis hit the road

e’louise ondash

L

ooking down on the crystal clear panorama of Pittsburgh’s skyscrapers, the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, and the football cathedral known as Heinz Field, it’s difficult to picture this city any other way. But at the turn of the 20th century, this now gleaming metropolis was

known as Smoky City and Hell With the Lid Off. Pittsburgh then was a city of steel mills and smoke stacks that belched forth copious clouds of noxious fumes, smog that shrouded neighborhoods, and soot that clung to houses, clothing and lungs. Often when the noontime whistle blew, the air was as black as midnight. Pittsburgh’s residents worked long hours, were chronically ill and often died prematurely. Many were Eastern European immigrants who came to the city between 1880 and 1920, sometimes pouring through Pittsburgh’s train terminal at the rate of 20,000
