Marathon legend still on move Del Mar resident first to run Boston Special to The Coast News

DEL MAR — Now in her 70s, Boston Marathon legend Bobbi Gibb, the first woman who crossed the finish line in 1966, is still running. Gibb, born in Massachusetts, now splits her time between the East Coast and Del Mar and said: “Yes, I still run. If it’s too hot or cold or rainy or snowy in Boston, I run inside on my trampoline. My favorite place to run is the Del Mar beach and Torrey Pines.” But it’s the Boston Marathon that put Gibb on the map. She said she first saw the famous race in 1964, at BOBBI GIBB that time at age 23. hardly anyCourtesy photo one ran and for a grown woman to run in public was thought improper. There were few, if any, other marathons happening. “Boston was the only one I knew of,” she recalled. Gibb said she always loved running, and as a young girl would run in the woods with the neighborhood dogs. “With the Boston Marathon, I saw others who felt the same way I did about running,” she said. “Something inside me decided I wanted to run with them, so I started to train myself by TURN TO MARATHON ON 9

Biographer gives lecture on RSF architect Rice By Christina Macone-Greene

FAIRBANKS RANCH — On Oct. 24, Rancho Santa Fe and Fairbanks Ranch residents had the opportunity to hear Diane Welch, an official Lilian Rice biographer, lead an educational lecture highlighting the master architect. The free event was hosted by Fairbanks Ranch residents Mike and Lori Conger and the venue was the Fairbanks Ranch Association Clubhouse. Welch has two published books about the architect titled, “The Life and Times of Lilian J. Rice, Master Architect” and “Lilian J. Rice: Master Architect of

Rancho Santa Fe.” Welch received a first-place win at the San Diego Book Awards for “The Life and Times of Lilian J. Rice, Master Architect,” under the biography category. The American Institute of Architects has recognized Rice for her architectural accomplishments while her residences and other structures have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places or as

Lilian Rice

County Landmarks. Welch said she was delighted when Lori Conger reached out to her about kicking off an educational series for residents of Fairbanks Ranch. Welch described her presentation as twofold. She first offered guests a visual presentation and talked about Rice’s life and her contribution in the world of architecture. Rice played a valuable role in managing the “mas-

ter-planned” community of Rancho Santa Fe. Additionally, she architecturally designed homes for high-profile celebrities in the region. Welch then segued into the history of Rancho Zorro, as it was known in the 1920s, when it was first owned by Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and Mary Pickford. Guests had the opportunity to see vintage photographs. Welch described the visuals as an eye candy presentation. “It’s wonderful to show how idyllic and how beautiful FairTURN TO RICE ON 6

Carmel Valley teen with ‘heart of gold’ helps Tijuana families Special to The Coast News

CARMEL VALLEY — You don’t necessarily have to be older to be a Good Samaritan. Take Carmel Valley resident, Daniella Marie Benitez, 14, who is not your average teen. Daniella is helping Tijuana families have roofs over their heads — one family at a time. It began in 2017 while she was volunteering for Build A Miracle and building a home for a family in need in Tijuana, Mexico. Daniella found it so fulfilling that she spearheaded building another home with the support of her family and friends. To date, she has raised $32,000 for her cause and recently headed to Tijuana to begin building her team’s second home. “It has been an incredible experience,” Daniella, a freshman at Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego, said. She learned about Build A Miracle through her previous school, Notre Dame Academy. “To see the families smile and be happy and have roofs over their heads is amazing,” she said. Build A Miracle

Build A Miracle is a nonprofit organization, founded by Chris and Julianne North, that takes a family in need from a shack, to a new home with running electricity, plumbing, bedrooms, kitchen and a bathroom. It has built more than

350 homes since 1999. During this most recent trip to Tijuana, Daniella and her team poured the foundation for the second new home. Additionally, she used her other volunteering position as a member of KIDBOX’s Kids board of directors to help distribute $10,000 worth of brand new KIDBOX clothing to families in the community. KIDBOX is the first social mission-based kids’ style box that offers premier brands and significant savings. Due to Daniella’s philanthropic efforts, she

was selected to be on KIDBOX’s Kids board of directors, where she can advise the company on kids’ fashion while also learning firsthand from top executives in the industry, participating in meaningful social good projects, and being supported in her Build A Miracle efforts. “It is very special to get to spend time and create bonds with other kids who enjoy helping others with KIDBOX,” Daniella said. “I love fashion, so it’s so cool to be working with a charitable fashion com-

pany. Also, the KIDBOX family are such good people, and have helped with so much, such as donating $10,000 worth of clothing to my BAM community’s kids, which I handed out with my fellow BAM volunteers on Oct. 13, during our last build date in Tijuana.” Between BAM and KIDBOX, the busy teen said she isn’t about to stop helping others anytime soon; in fact, it’s something she treasures. “I’ve been working with BAM for about a year and a half,” she said. “I got

involved at the end of seventh grade when my school, Notre Dame Academy, sponsored the building of a school sponsored home; my mom forced my family and me to go down to TJ to actually help build the house.” “We had gone down for the second part of the build dates, where we got to paint, furnish and surprise the family with their new home,” she said. “Meeting the family and seeing their reactions when they walked into their new home was priceless and is what inspired me to keep doing this.” Daniella said she felt like she needed to do something to help those less fortunate. “After my first experience, my eyes were opened to not only how bad other people have it, but also to how lucky I am,” she said. “It made me want to do more to help others. I decided the next day to commit to raising enough money to build at least one house a year.” “I remember she came and told she was going to do this, but I had my initial doubts,” GG Benitez, Daniella’s mom, said. “We are so thrilled by what she has accomplished through her passion and leadership. Daniella truly has a heart of gold.” So, has Daniella taken to using a hammer herself during the building process? “Well, not a hammer,” she said. “But, we mixed

cement and poured it to lay the foundations. We painted the inside and outside of the houses. We furnished the houses and it was really fun.” Daniella said she hopes to continue serving as a volunteer even after she finishes high school and perhaps college. “These projects are important to me because I want to stay humble and want to help other people who are struggling,” she said. “I feel very lucky for the life that I have, and if I have the ability to help other people, I’d like to do it for as long as I can.” How she raises money

As for raising the money that went toward building the home for the first family, Daniella has helped raise $16,000 by asking other families and friends to raise $1,000 each. She herself has raised money via various jobs. “I’ve raised $16,000 twice now by gathering 15 other families, who are each in charge of raising $1,000,” she said. “For my portions, I babysat, started a GoFundMe, did chores and bake sales.” With the help of her mom, the teen was even able to get radio personality Ryan Seacrest, actor Mario Lopez and celebrity Phaedra Parks involved in the Build A Miracle projects. “My mom had reached out to Sisanie from ‘On Air TURN TO TEEN ON 20

Veterans and suicide By Melissa Martin

As Veteran’s Day approaches, remember that those who fought for our freedom are dying by suicide on American soil. “On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind,” proclaimed U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski. In 2015, an average of 20 active-duty service members, non-activated guard or reserve members, and other veterans died by suicide each day, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention (OMHSP) Facts About Veterans Suicide: June 2018. Within Army units, the risk of suicide attempts among soldiers increases as the number of attempts made within the past year in their unit rises, according to a study, published in the 2017 journal JAMA Psychiatry. The research data came from the Army’s Study to Assess Risk and Resilience in Service Members project, or STARRS, America’s largest study of mental health risk and resilience among military personnel. “While suicide is a national problem, it is one that also affects smaller communities, including the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) community. These brave men and women have suffered losses not only on the battlefield, but from suicide in recent years,” according to a 2017 online article in U.S. Veterans Magazine. As the Federalist pointed out in a 2018 article, research indicates “feelings of shame or guilt trigger the emotional, mental, and physical reactions that lead to suicide. This is guilt about what soldiers did to others and shame of not being able to save the lives of those around them.”

The United States military has identified Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), other mental illnesses, and addiction as suicide risk factors. Other risk factors associated with suicide include relationship problems, administrative/legal issues, workplace difficulties and associated medical conditions include traumatic brain injury (TBI), chronic pain, and sleep disorders. Suicide warning signs Know the warning signs: personality change, agitation, withdrawal, poor selfcare, hopelessness, feeling excessive guilt, shame, or sense of failure, rage or anger, engaging in risky activities without thinking, losing interest in hobbies, work, or school, increasing alcohol or drug misuse, w it hd raw i ng from family and friends, showing violent behavior like punching a hole in the wall or getting into fights.

utgoing Gov. Jerry Brown attracted little local attention a month or so ago, when at the very end of California government’s bill signing-or-veto season he signed a bill guaranteeing “net neutrality” for all computer users in his state. This didn’t attract a lot of attention in most quarters, coming as it did during the confirmation battle over new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. But there was one outfit that saw the Brown move for what it is: the Trump administration, which considered the move a major declaration of defiance by the one state that has resisted its agenda most. Net neutrality essentially stops internet service provider companies (ISPs) from charging some websites more than others to use their service; it won’t let them pick and choose which websites to slow down or speed up, nor does it allow ISPs to block contacts they don’t like. These previously illegal practices were legalized nationally last June by the Federal Communications Commission, acting at the behest of firms like AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and Frontier. The new California law asserts the state has the right to protect its citizens from these practices and it is the only state law of its kind in America. It was backed by a large coalition of consumer groups and tens of thousands of individuals, the conflict perhaps causing Brown to delay his signature until the last possible moment. Although it got little news coverage, the new law got plenty of attention from the Trump administration, which within minutes filed a lawsuit to quash it.

california focus thomas d. elias “Once again, the California Legislature has enacted an extreme and illegal state law attempting to frustrate federal policy,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who also opposes California’s anti-smog and climate change mitigation regulations and its immigration sanctuary laws, among many others. Unlike other disputed issues, net neutrality involves nothing ideological, nor even social policy. This dispute is about money and freedom in an arena where everyone has previously been treated with complete equality. It cements a huge change in one of the Republican Party’s most central ideological stances of the last 160 years: The belief that states have the right to control policy within their borders on anything where the Constitution does not explicitly give authority to the federal government. During all those years, the GOP portrayed itself as the champion of decentralized government. But the latest battles, net neutrality now a big symbol of them, expose Republicans as opportunists: So long as states’ rights meant they could exempt states they controlled from things like voting rights for minorities, pollution controls, abortion and equal access to education, the GOP was all for the concept. But with Republicans controlling the presidency, the judiciary and most of Congress, the party began revealing its true colors. No less than Democrats when they are in power, the GOP wants to assert

its agenda everywhere in America, and never mind what any state and its populace might want. There’s a lot of future danger here for Republicans and their longtime agenda, chiefly because of the pendulum swings natural to politics. Whichever party is in power often assumes it will wield that authority forever, when history shows power in America is almost always fleeting. So when the GOP attempts to impose its policies on states that want no part of them, using the Constitution’s supremacy clause that gives federal laws priority when they conflict with state or local ones, it risks major losses once the Democrats regain power, as they surely will within two, four or six years. But the GOP under Trump’s management and leadership is anything but foresightful, generally acting with little or no delayed gratification but rather demanding instant satisfaction and obedience. Yes, it’s common for opponents of heavily centralized government to change when they gain power, but today’s pattern as it’s playing out over net neutrality suggests a more lasting position for the national Republican Party, which is doing all it can to perpetuate its hold on power. But all the GOP needs to do is persist in its current approach and today’s crescendo of resistance to its ideas and policies by state governments and individuals will grow so loud the Republicans’ hold on power won’t be able to withstand it.

FACE Foundation readies for 7th annual golf benefit By Christina Macone-Greene

SOLANA BEACH — Golfers are getting ready to take a swing to help support the FACE Foundation for its seventh invitational golf tournament on Nov. 12 at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club in Solana Beach. The event lands on Veterans Day, so the tournament will also honor those who served their country. “Our seventh annual golf tournament is going to be special in that it’s going to be dedicated to those in the service including men, women and dogs,” said Danae Davis, executive director of the FACE Foundation. “The day is going to be kicked off by a canine detective demo before the golfers getting out there on the course.” The golf tournament is an already sold-out event with more than 95 players, but there is still room to take part in the dinner, which will have an official awards ceremony along with live auctions and must-have opportunity drawings. According to Davis, the live auction will be emceed by Sports Director Ben Higgins. “During the dinner, there’s going to be some special guests including some grantees that FACE has helped before,” said Davis, adding it will be heartfelt evening. One of those guests will be San Diego resident and U.S. veteran Edwin Rivers, and his 3-year-old dog, Miles, who helps Rivers with his combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder from Operation Desert Storm. Having a dog has helped me to be able to feel somewhat safer especially at night at home,” Rivers said. “My dog reminds me that I’m not alone. Miles has encouraged me to want to get out the house more than I used to.”

Rivers turned to the FACE Foundation after Miles fractured his hip when jumping off a porch. The veterinarian said that without surgery, Miles would have to be euthanized. “There was no way I could pay the cost of the operation, and after contacting a few organizations I got in contact with FACE, and they immediately agreed to cover the entire cost of the operation literally saving my dog from having to be put down,” he said. FACE stands for Foundation for Animal Care and Education. The organization was established in 2006 and specifically helps with emergency veterinary treatment for pets in need of life-saving care. “What we try to end is what we call economic euthanasia,” Davis said. “This is when a pet is tragically euthanized or put to sleep simply because the pet parent doesn’t have enough funds at the time of the medical emergency. FACE comes in and can help to fund that emergency veterinary care to save the pet’s life.” In its first year in existence, FACE granted to 12 pets in need and worked with one animal hospital. Last year, FACE granted to more than 330 pets and worked with more than 160 veterinary hospitals. “To date this year, we have saved more than 270 pets,” said Davis, adding that the organization is expected to grant up to $700,000 just this year. “Since our inception, we have saved 2,260 lives.” And that number continues to grow with each passing day.

ENCINITAS — Construction of the Cardiff Beach Living Shoreline Project — an attempt to improve habitat and protect Cardiff State Beach and Highway 101 from coastal flooding — has gained steam, with a projected completion date of late February 2019. Encinitas, in partnership with several state and federal agencies, has received grant funding from the Ocean Protection Council “to reduce the vulnerability of Coast Highway 101 to flooding, create coastal dune habitat, create a pedestrian path along the dunes, and beneficially reuse sand from future San Elijo Lagoon annual dredging operations,” according to a city press release. The project will stretch along the Cardiff State Beach shoreline from near the Chart House restaurant to about 200 feet short of the parking lot on the southern end. Given the low elevation of the highway there, which varies from about 15 to 20 feet above sea level, the area has been particularly vulnerable to coastal flooding during large storms. The city has also voiced concern that projected sea-level rise could increase the flooding’s incidence and severity. The dune system will “limit the impact” of coastal flooding without being able to “contain it all,” said Pete Milligan, the city’s project engineer. Milligan explained that the heaps of sand currently found on the northern edge of the beach came from a recent excavation of the San Elijo Lagoon in-

let. The inlet gets excavated annually to cleanse the lagoon of stagnant water and keep it healthy. The newly dredged sand will be placed on top of the dunes, which will be built with two-ton rocks — some of which already line the eastern side of the beach — over geotech fabric. In order to ensure that the dunes do not block beach views, they will have a maximum height of three feet above centerline of Highway 101. Milligan said of the layout, “It’s more like one massive dune, approximately 60 feet wide, that is interrupted by access points.” Six lateral entryways, delineated by timber posts with rope handrails, will provide access through the dunes to the beach. The diagonal paths will be spaced about 180 feet apart on the northern side of the project, which

is the wider section of beach that also has highway parking. The middle and south ends of the project don’t have highway parking, and the beach narrows there. Informational signs about dune habitat, as well as signs asking people to keep off the dunes, will be installed. Project plans also include a pedestrian path running parallel to Highway 101 and connecting with the sidewalk at the southern end of the beach. The path’s width varies but will average 7 feet. Made of decomposed granite, it will be stable enough for wheelchair use yet permeable enough to allow water through. As a final step, the San Elijo Conservancy plans to seed the top of the dunes with native plants, including sand verbenas, beach evening primrose and Orcutt’s pincushion.

Milligan said that the plantings will improve dune habitat and that the dunes will be protected by signage, maintenance and the restriction of pedestrian movement to designated paths. Encinitas awarded the dune construction contract to West-Tech, Inc., for $1,850,532 and signed a construction management agreement with GHD, Inc., for $180,698. The city’s matching grant contributions are “in kind,” Milligan said, through his and other employees’ labor on the project. The Cardiff Beach Living Shoreline Project represents a collaborative effort between Encinitas, California State Coastal Conservancy, United States Fish and Wildlife Service, California Coastal Commission, California Department of Parks & Recreation and the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy.

ECOLIFE sees aquaponics as answer to modern crises By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — It’s a piece of farmland nestled in the northern edge of Escondido which would be easy to miss by sojourners going south on Highway 15 toward San Diego and those going north toward wine country in Temecula. Yet those who visit will come across what’s hailed by the organization ECOLIFE Conservation — a nonprofit organization which owns the property and also has an administrative office in downtown Escondido — as a case study of what global society needs to cure a triple set of related crises. Those are climate change, globally unsustainable food production practices and water shortages — crises which most ecologists say have fed on one another to create a perfect storm of sorts. The solution? ECOLIFE Conservation says a big part of it could be aquaponics and to exemplify this agricultural production process in-action, it has opened shop on a new aquaponics greenhouse, which is essentially self-sustaining. Which begs the natural follow up question? That is, what is aquaponics? “Aquaponics is a sustainable method of food production combining aquaculture (raising aquatic animals) and hydroponics (cultivating plants in water with added nutrients),” explains Ecolife’s website. “In this circulating system, nitrifying bacteria converts fish waste into a natural fertilizer for plants, plants take up those nutrients and return clean water to the fish.” In a press release disseminated about its newly upgraded Aquaponics Innovation Center, ECOLIFE pointed to some of the characteristics which keep the machine humming and self-sustaining on its new aquaponics system. “At its test and research facility in Escondido, ECOLIFE designed and built a 900 ft 2 system capable of growing 333 lbs. of tilapia, 1,600 heads of lettuce or a combination of lettuce and high-value tomato and cucumber crops in a recirculating system,” the organization explained. “The innovative design features solar powered mechanical filtration, mineralization tanks, and back up power to

keep water circulating in the event of a power outage.” Its newly remodeled aquaponics system and the greenhouse which oversees it cost about $13,000, said Kait Cole, aquaponics program manager for ECOLIFE, in an interview with The Coast News at ECOLIFE’s newly revamped aquaponics farm. ECOLIFE says aquaponics uses about 90 percent

less water than traditional farming and agricultural practices. Beyond just a land conservation, water saving and sustainable farming practice, however, ECOLIFE also believes that with more uptake, aquaponics can also help chip away at the climate change crisis. “In regards to climate change, the farming industry creates a lot of emissions through tractors, pesticides, overuses of water,” Cole said. “With aquaponics, you also cannot use any sort of harmful pesticides because they will kill your fish, so there’s a guarantee that you’re going to have great natural produce because you can’t use anything that’s going to be harmful, otherwise it will be detrimental to your system and the health of your fish.” For its aquaponics system, ECOLIFE secured a patent form the U.S. Trade and Patent Organization in March 2015. After growing its food through the aquaponics technique, ECOLIFE donates it to various nonprofit organizations. They include Community Interfaith, Produce Good and Produce for Patriots, all of which are organizations dedicated to getting food to low-income individuals and food inse-

banks was back in the day when it was known as Rancho Zorro,” Welch said. Welch went onto explain how Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and Mary Pickford purchased Block K from the Santa Fe Land Improvement Company, the real estate arm of the Atchison, Topeka, Santa Fe Railroad Company, in 1926. “The SFLIC had purchased the former Spanish Land Grant of Rancho San

cure people. The organization has existed for 15 years and much of its work, beyond its in-house aquaponics system, centers around bringing miniature aquaponics systems and educational curriculum to schools throughout San Diego County and indeed, nationwide, with its Eco Cycle system in place in all 50 states. Two schools within inland North County have them, too, said Cole: Madison Middle School in San Marcos and Twin Oaks Continuation High School in Vista. These systems can also be purchased online for household usage. In total, ECOLIFE has says it has reached out to 122,020 students and distributed 658 aquaponics kits in classrooms nationwide. Of those, 87 are situated in North County, with 15 in Vista schools, two in San Marcos schools and 38 within Escondido schools. And in 10 schools throughout San Diego County, too, it has helped create larger Eco-Gardens which are bigger than the Eco-Cycle kits and more akin to the aquaponics system they have in-house in Escondido. “The benefits of these project-based, sustainable gardens are countless because they give students the chance to explore some of the world’s most pressing issues revolving around our environment and food system,” ECOLIFE explains of its Eco-Gardens program on its website. “In addition, tending to aquaponic systems increases students’ comprehension of scientific concepts and provides empowerment for student leadership.

Ranch real estate agent dives into ‘joyous’ venture By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Since the mid-1990s, realtor Janet Lawless Christ of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has found Rancho Santa Fe to be the perfect destination to represent her clientele. As a Ranch resident herself, she continues to be enchanted by the area. “Rancho Santa Fe is a lovely place — it’s just wonderful, and it can be so much more vibrant than it already is,” said Lawless Christ, who is passionate about philanthropy. For Lawless Christ, philanthropy makes life even more incredible. “I am a true believer in that I am my brother’s and sister’s keepers — I owe it to others to help them out however I can,” she said. “And those ‘others’ can be two-footed or four-footed.” Lawless Christ is also the co-founder of “Holli”day…AnyDay, a charitable organization in the Ranch. Janet assists her close friend Holli Lienau in the creation of experiences for silent and live auction items. And now, after years of development along with 12 other business wonder women, she is now launching a new enterprise called, “JoyWorks Network.” Lawless Christ notes that the idea of “JoyWorks” has percolated in her mind since 1995, but recent developments in e-commerce and social media make the concept viable now. “The JoyWorks Network is a for-profit endeavor, which has a charitable arm wherein a portion of any monies that come into JoyWorks will go toward environmental and educational causes as well as animal stewardship,” she said. Lawless Christ believes that these causes are underserved and much can be done just by heightening awareness and funds. Twenty-seven percent of the net Joyworks profits will go toward these charitable arms. The remaining percentage will be a business endeavor so that the organization can continue to donate. “Our mission statement says it all. JoyWorks is a socially conscious lifestyle brand with a mission to help people choose joy and lead a life of joy through content, products and charitathey came to the newly named Rancho Santa Fe, planning to recreate an idyllic setting, reminiscent of a Spanish vilDiane Welch lage.” Welch also noted how the couple bought additional acres close to the Lusardi Ranch with the goal of planting a citrus grove. “They hired a manager to oversee their ranch, Ran-

ble giving,” she said. “We strive to inspire focus on environmental education, and animal stewardship, to promote health, fitness, and mindfulness and to empower people to support each other and achieve their potential.” JoyWorks’ content will highlight inspiring stories on its current website, as well as its upcoming app, Instagram TV, YouTube and social media outlets. Audiences will hear stories of inspiration, beating the odds, uplifting others and more joyful acts. “JoyWorks doesn’t mean you’re a Pollyanna and you don’t recognize that there are thorns on a bougainvillea bush,” Lawless Christ said. “It’s about focusing on the beauty, not the thorns. We’re selling what everybody is seeking for in this world. Really, everybody does want to be happy. Choosing joy is a way of life.” Aside from the content, JoyWorks subscribers can also be part of the seasonal box experience. The environmentally friendly boxes will be made possibly from bamboo or compostable cornstarch. The JoyWorks team will curate joyous products such as flowers, organic beauty products, pet products and more. Creating JoyWorks also inspired Lawless Christ to write a children’s book about one of her rescue dogs, nicknamed Nugget,

titled, “Nugget the Nomad, Adventures of the Yoga Dog.” The release date will be in January 2019 with all proceeds going toward JoyWorks’ charitable functions. Having been in the real estate industry for more than 20 years, Lawless Christ said her new branch manager, Brian Freeman, and Director of Growth Robert Luciano at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Rancho Santa Fem have reinvigorated her business vision. In fact, it’s trickling down to JoyWorks in a big way. “If any real estate business comes to me personally as a realtor because someone’s heard of JoyWorks or wants to share the vision of JoyWorks, 72 percent of my net commission from a listing or buyer I represent will go to one of our charities,” she said. “This is how much JoyWorks means to me.” Lawless Christ commends Luciano and Freeman on the business culture they instilled in the Rancho Santa Fe office. Luciano pointed out how their company hears what their agents have to say and does what they can do to empower them. They want to support their agents while they are out there helping their clients. “We’re all in this together, and we all have one mutual goal in mind, and that’s just to be the best,” he said. Freeman describes the business culture as one where that have figured out ways to never say “no.” “At Coldwell Banker, we really provide a diverse environment as collaborative — it’s supportive, and it’s fun, he said. “We’re a company that I believe not only here in the Ranch but throughout our San Diego region inspires pride to our agents.” Lawless Christ said she was so impressed by Freeman and Luciano, that adding the element of a philanthropic enterprise through JoyWorks in her real estate business seemed like a natural segue. “I can’t wait for what the future brings — in 2019 JoyWorks is going to come out of the gates blazing our trumpets,” she said.

cho Zorro. Sadly, the couple divorced within a few years of the purchase and the dream was never realized.” Welch said she hopes that her attendees walked away with two things. The first, learning how remarkable Lilian Rice was and how she should be getting more recognition for her accomplishments. Everything that Welch presented that evening, and in her books about Rice, is factual, she said. “Lillian Rice was a lady architect in the De-

pression Era in America — a time when most women absolutely struggled to get into the profession,” she said. “And we struggle now to get recognition for what they did.” Welch added she continues to be a champion for Rice. “The other I’d like everyone to take away is how different Fairbanks Ranch was after the 1920s, 1930s.” For more information about Welch and her Lilian Rice biographies, visit http://www.dianeywelch. com/

High exit fees not ‘fatal blow’ to alternative energy providers By Steve Puterski

REGION — A recent ruling by the California Public Utilities Commission levies higher exit fees for those using or wanting to join Community Choice Alternative energy providers. Mayors and political leaders throughout the state condemned the approval, which was brought by Commissioner Carla Peterman, seeing the commission as being too cozy with utilities and their lobbying efforts. Exit fees, otherwise known as the Power Charge Indifference Adjustment, will rise from 2.5 cents per kilowatt per hour to 4.25 cents per kw/hour. The beneficiaries, according to media reports, are San Diego Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison and Pacific Gas & Energy in Northern California. Nicole Capretz, executive director of the Climate Action Campaign, said the ruling is not a big blow to ratepayers in San Diego County. Her organization is pushing cities to join CCA,

noting Solana Beach was the first city in the county to do so earlier this year. “For San Diego Gas & Electric, because they have these outlandish rates, that are completely out of step with the norm, the exit fee is not a fatal blow,” Capretz said. “We can move forward finally and join the rest of the state and offer this incredible opportunity.”

Carlsbad, Oceanside, Encinitas and Del Mar have all joined to finance a study about bringing a CCA through a joint powers agreement. In addition, the city of San Diego could be part of the JPA, Capretz said. The report is expected to be released in the next several months, according to Jason Haber, assistant to the city manager in Carls-

bad.

Haber also said the four cities are recalculating some of the numbers due to the recent ruling by the California Public Utilities Commission. The feasibility study, he added, is just the first step in what is expected to be a long process to determine whether a CCA for an individual city such as Carlsbad, or through a JPA,

Longtime Solana Beach councilman Campbell dies By Lexy Brodt

SOLANA BEACH — Thomas Campbell, known in Solana Beach as a steadfast and devoted former councilman and mayor, died of lung cancer on Oct. 19. He was 69. Campbell retired from City Council in December 2014 after serving 20 years as a city councilman and holding the rotational mayoral position five times — a length of service met by only one other city council member. He has been actively involved with the city since its origins, running

for Solana Beach’s first City Council in 1986. A t the Oct. 24 council meeting, Mayor Dave Campbell Zito lauded his former colleague for his “tremendous service” to the community, adjourning the meeting in Campbell’s honor. Zito said Campbell was instrumental in “turning a lot of the City Council back

to a focus on the community and the residents.” “Early in his term Tom was on the losing end of three 4-1 votes, where he was the sole person supporting the community,” Zito said, referring to various land-use and zoning decisions that were ultimately overturned by a public vote. “It goes to show how good he was at his message; how good he was at staying in tune with the community and representing local neighborhoods.” Zito credited Camp-

Trial date set for deputy accused of sexual assaults REGION — A Feb. 25 trial date was set Oct. 25 for a San Diego County sheriff’s deputy accused of groping and sexually assaulting 16 women he came into contact with while on patrol. Richard Fischer, 32, was charged eight months ago with assault and battery by an officer, sexual battery and false imprisonment for allegedly groping and sexually assaulting 13 women in 2015, 2016 and 2017. In August, prosecutors filed five new charges, including assault and battery by an officer and forcible oral copulation, against Fischer, a six-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department. Those charges involve three additional women. Prosecutors will move to consolidate the two cases at a hearing Dec. 3. A jury trial is expected to last six to eight weeks. Fischer — who remains on unpaid administrative leave — faces more than 25 years in prison if convicted. Defense attorney Manny Medrano has said the case boils down to a “he- said-she-said” situation. A 51-year-old businesswoman testified at the preliminary hearing last month that Fischer first responded to a 911 call at her living facility for people with mental health issues about 6 p.m. Dec. 31, 2016. She said Fischer and his partner told her the matter had been resolved and started to leave.

bell with contributing to some of the city’s more “innovative” decisions, such as paying off the city’s pension liability through its sanitation fund. Campbell’s commitment to the city extended far beyond city hall — in addition to running his CPA firm in town, he was a member of the city’s Chamber of Commerce, and served as president of both the Solana Beach Little League and Soccer League. “He was hugely tied into this community,” Zito said.

Man arrested in death of mother

But Fischer came back in and said, “Can I have a hug?” the woman testified. Since it was New Year’s Eve, “I didn't see any harm,” the witness testified. The mother of three testified that Fischer returned in March 2017, coming into her garage which she used as an office for her business. The woman said Fischer asked to talk privately, told her that he wasn’t married and asked for another hug. “He was flirtatious,” the witness testified, saying she told Fischer the hug was not appropriate. The woman said Fischer returned sometime between March 27 and April 4 of last year as she was getting ready for bed. The woman said she let Fischer in, and he pushed her onto her bed and forced her to perform a sex act on him. A 25-year-old woman testified that Fischer rubbed her thighs and put his hand between her legs as she sat in the back of his patrol car in shorts after a drunken driving crash into parked cars in September 2017. A 46-year-old woman testified that Fischer groped her inside a motel room, where she had gone with her daughter after an argument at home.

OCEANSIDE — A man was jailed Nov. 5 on suspicion of killing his 64-year-old mother after she failed to meet another of her sons in Las Vegas and was found dead inside her Oceanside home, police said. Officers were called at 12:30 p.m. Sunday to Regina Sardina’s residence in the 3900 block of Shenandoah Drive, near Pauline Way, after one of her three sons found her dead of severe upper body trauma, Oceanside police spokesman Tom Bussey said. The son had gone to check on his mother after she failed to meet one of his brothers as planned in Las Vegas, Bussey said. Officers found Sardina’s Mercedes-Benz sedan around 5 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot of a shopping center near the intersection of Plaza Drive and College Boulevard, he said. The suspect, identified as 37-year-old Anthony Sardina, was spotted leaving the area in a taxi cab, Bussey said. The taxi company told police that the suspect was dropped off in Carlsbad, and Carlsbad police arrested him shortly after 6 p.m., the spokesman said. Police have not disclosed a suspected motive for the killing. Sardina was b being held without bail pending arraignment.

would be worth the cost, among other aspects. Currently, 160 municipalities in the state have a CCA, otherwise known as Community Choice Energy, serving 6 million residents. Capretz said the benefits are lower rates due to competition “The fight’s not over,” she added. “Other Community Choice programs … have been very clear that they are just gearing up. They believe this was an unfair decision in favor of utilities.” Capretz said the difference is those programs have launched, while much of San Diego County has not. She railed against the commission’s relationship with industry lobbyists. “We deserve consumer choice,” she added. “I just think that is a fundamental economic principle that is in the DNA of all Americans. And there is the opportunity to shape and design our energy future.” In Solana Beach, Assistant City Manager Dan

King said the city was disappointed with the commission’s ruling. The higher exit fees will delay some long-term goals for Solana Energy Alliance, he said, although the 50 percent renewable and 74 percent carbon-free base package will still be available in addition to the 3 percent (discount) energy generation program. As for the revenue, King did not comment as the city is readjusting those projections based on the ruling. However, they are expected to be lower, which will affect the long-term goal of introducing additional energy efficiency programs. King said the exit fee increases are expected to go into effect on Jan. 1. “Our program is still shown to be a viable program,” King said. “Being a small CCA, we weren’t planning on rolling out some of those programs for a few years. It’s going to take us a little bit longer to build up some of that revenue to roll out those programs.”

Santa Ana wind season has arrived By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — The recent Santa Ana winds might not have been the last of it and could continue into this month. These winds coupled with low humidity increases the risk of fire danger and has everyone on a red flag alert. “Generally, October and November are the Santa Ana wind event months for us,” Vista Deputy Fire Chief Ned Vander Pol said. “It’s not uncommon to have these events at this time of year.” From a weather standpoint, Vander Pol said Santa Anas are created by the high-pressure systems that speed up over the Four Corners area, with a low-pressure system over Southern California. “In our case, we get the hot, dry winds that come from the desert and make their way to the coast,” he said. “A significant Santa Ana wind event means we end up with temperatures that are warmer at the coast than they are inland. The one we recently had was deemed a moderate Santa Ana. There were some excessive winds north of us, but as far as San Diego County was concerned. it was considered a moderate Santa Ana condition.” Vander Pol said the National Weather Service generally reports Santa Ana wind conditions about five to seven days before they happen. As the “wind event” gets closer, the accuracy of the data, as well as the reliability of their forecast, improve as each day and hour passes. When a Santa Ana Wind is expected, Vander Pol said how the Vista Fire Department works with all the other fire departments in the county. “The chiefs usually get

together on a conference call and make a decision if there’s going to be any up-staffing of resources,” he said. “That means putting additional fire engines into service and adding additional personnel.” According to Vander Pol, some agencies in the county did up-staff and add personnel during these last Santa Ana winds; however, the Vista Fire Department did not, but it did do some reorganizing. Training was scheduled in the center of town during the Santa Ana wind series but was canceled because of the weather report. “What we chose to do was cancel that training and have those fire engines remain in their stations, closer to the wildland-urban interface,” he said. When a red flag warning is broadcasted, red flags fly outside fire station buildings while the public is notified of the high fire risk on all social media channels, city e-blasts and other types of updates. “Red flag notices let people know that we are in fire weather, so things such as mowing the lawn, or having an outdoor fire are strictly forbidden during a red flag condition,” Vander Pol said. Anything that generates a spark is banned. Another example is pulling a trailer with a chain dragging on a road. “Those sparks can end up in the vegetation and start a vegetation fire,” he said, adding that a level of awareness is vital during red flag warnings. “And if you do see somebody that has an outdoor fire, or a truck pulling a trailer that’s generating sparks, or somebody out mowing their lawn or using a weed-whacker on a red flag warning day, call your local fire department or 911.”

FAMOUS NEIGHBORS MARATHON CONTINUED FROM 1

running longer and longer distances.” In the summer of 1964, she traveled across the country with her Malamute puppy, Moot, sleeping at night under the stars. During the day, she’d run in different places. “It was a spiritual journey, as well as training for the marathon,” she said. “I trained for two years. In the fall of 1965, I ran 65 miles in two days of the Woodstock Vermont equestrian 100-mile and figured I was ready for Boston.” In January 1966, she married a Navy man and moved to San Diego, and continued training on the beaches and mountains. A month later, in February 1966, she wrote to the race director of the Boston Marathon for an entry and bib number. “I didn’t hide my gender,” she recalled. “He wrote back refusing my request, saying that women were not physiologically capable of running marathons, and that it was a men’s division race for which women were not qualified. The longest women could run was a mile and a half.” At the time, Gibb was running 40 miles at a stretch: “I said: ‘All the more reason to run!’” “I knew if I could prove this false belief about women wrong I’d throw into doubt all the other prejudices and false beliefs that had been used to keep women down for centuries,” she said. So, she took a bus from San Diego to Boston, and arrived the day before the race at her parents’ house in Winchester, a suburb of Boston. “My parents thought I was nuts, but I persuaded my mom to drive me to the start in Hopkinton. She let me out of the car some distance from the center and I began to run, looking for a way to get into the race without being removed or stopped,” she said.

“I was wearing a tank top bathing suit over a hooded sweatshirt, and my brother’s Bermuda shorts. I found a clump of bushes near the start and then warmed up running in an ally way for some 40 minutes.” The men gathered at the start, she said, and she ran back to the bushes and hid.

“The starting gun fired. I let about half the pack go by then I jumped in,” she said. “In just a few minutes the men realized I was a woman. They could have easily shouldered me out or called the officials or the police and had me taken out, but to my great relief they were friendly and protective. ‘It’s a free road. We won’t let them throw you out, they said.’” Gibb said she was getting hot, so she took off the sweatshirt, and now everyone could see she was a woman running. The crowds cheered. “My progress was being reported on a local radio station and the press was following my run. When I reached Wellesley, the women were screaming and clapping. One woman shouted, ‘Ave Maria! Ave Maria!’ There were tears in her eyes. I felt tears in my own eyes. This would change the way people thought about women and set women free!” she said. Gibb ran on to Boston and finished ahead of twothirds of the men. “When I reached Boston, the governor of Massachusetts came to shake my hand,” she said. The next day, April 29, 1966, it was front page news with the headline: “First Gal to Run Marathon.” Word went out around the world that a woman had done the impossible. “It really shattered the stereotype about women,” she said. “If a woman could do this, what else could women do that was thought impossible?” The next year, 1967, she returned and ran again. There were two women running that year. She finished

about an hour ahead of the other woman, K Switzer, who had obtained an invalid number in the men’s division race by concealing her gender on the application and on the medical form, avoiding the required prerace physical exam, and having a man pick up her number for her, Gibb said. When officials saw her run by with an illegal number, they tried to remove it because the presence of an unqualified runner threatened the accreditation of the men’s division race and would have invalidated the running times of all the qualified runners under the rules of the Amateur Athletic Union. In 1968, Gibb returned and finished first among five women. “In all, there were eight of us who ran in what is now called the Women’s Pioneer Division. It was not until 1972 when the first official AAU accredited marathon was held in Boston,” she recalled. In 1969, Gibb didn’t return to Boston as she realized that she had made her point and now was on to other challenges. She would go on to graduate from Revelle College, UCSD, in pre-med, philosophy and mathematics, and applied for medical school. “In those days, it was thought women weren’t capable of the rigors of med school and 97 percent of the places were reserved for men. When I went for my interview, I was told I was ‘too pretty to go to medical school; I’d upset the boys in the lab.’” Later she went to law

school and worked in neuroscience research at MIT. For the love of running

The fascination with running runs deep for Gibb as she has always loved to run, even as a child. Racing across a green field, feeling the wind, watching the shimmering grass whirl by still gives her a feeling of exhilaration and joy, she said. In 1964, she was studying physics, math and biology at Tufts University School of Special Studies and sculpture at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts School. “I found in running through the woods a sense of peace, a unity of mind, body and a feeling of freedom and joy,” she said. “At that time, there was no track for women and women were not thought capable of running more than a mile and a half. Luckily, I didn’t know this. I wasn’t connected with the world of sports. “Running for me was a meditation, a healing and a spiritual feeling of relating to the universe,” she said. “I gloried in the miracle of being alive on this amazing planet in this infinite universe.” “Everything I was learning in science added to my sense of the mystery and awe I felt at this whole existence. I marveled at the earth, the moon, the stars and planets, atoms, molecules and photons of light? How did they get here and why?” Running, she said, brought here back in time to “before women were subjugated; a time woman ran free through the woods in Ancient Greece with their hunting dogs. Artemis, goddess of the hunt, Athena goddess of knowledge.” “I was seeking some-

thing deep in the human heart and psyche. If everyone could only feel this sense of well-being of running how much happier and healthier the world would be!” Serious sculptor

These days, Gibb spends much of her time working on her sculptures and writing; she has written four books to date and is “always writing another.” “I’ve always loved to paint and sculpt. As children we all start out doing art, just as we all start out running, and learning and are curious about everything. I just never stopped these first things and have kept on for my life.” She took up clay sculpting more seriously in the early ‘60s while attending the Boston Museum of Fine Arts School. She’s been sculpting ever since and loves painting murals. Four of her bronze sculptures of runners are in the National Museum of Sport in Indianapolis. Many of her sculptures are in private collections and she ex-

hibited in the prestigious Geraci Gallery in Rockport and the State-of-the-Art Gallery in Gloucester. She focuses on the human figure in action, and on bronze portrait bust commissions. “I work until I capture the human spirit in bronze,” she said. “Recently, I’ve been commissioned by the 26.2 Foundation to do a lifesized figure to be placed along the Boston Marathon route.” She completed said life-sized clay sculpture many months ago and is waiting for the foundation to raise the funds to cast it in bronze. And of course, the question comes up often if she was at the Boston Marathon when the bombings took place in 2013. “I was co-grand marshal that year and was sitting in the bleachers at the finish. I was getting cold, so I went to warm up. When I got home, I saw the horrific unbelievable tragedy unfolding on the TV. “My heart went out to the victims and their families,” she continued. “Once again, we saw the best of humanity as the first responders, medics officials and volunteers rushed to the aid of victims, and as our law enforcement tracked down the criminal/terrorists.” “I believe the kindness and generosity of people who helped the runners who were stranded, is really what people and humanity are all about — the 90 percent are good people who help and care for others and are the core of our communities.” The Coast News is looking for more “Famous Neighbors” from our readership area.

Focus on fabric artist Aura Suarez

T

his month of California Art News highlights the work of fabric artist and weaver, Aura Suarez. Since the age of 7, Suarez lived in the country side of Sativanorte, Boyaca Colombia with her grandfathers and indigenous family. Suarez is currently a San Diego resident. She first learned to weave by weaving ponchos and blankets with her family members. But she had an idea to mix leaves and sticks into her weaving and began to dye with leaves, roots and fruits. At 13 years old, Suarez moved to the capital Bogota, and started to visit museums galleries and artists’ studios where she learned more about other techniques, designs and color combinations. She worked in three dimensions and used natural fibers from plants. After constant visits with indigenous families, Suarez entered more into the indigenous mindset, and learned how important weaving is in finding inner peace and how to enter into harmony with the planet, mixing fibers and colors to

Bob Coletti create tapestries and faces of her indigenous people. Suarez’s work is a compelling mixture of Indigenous and Spanish techniques and is her first memory of her people’s way. The finished product is a reflection about her memories of younger days in Colombia and of the weavers who handmade their clothes in the past and still do in the present. This gave her a contact with the old technology and she was happy to know the two routes. Suarez plans to teach children about the culture so they do not forget the rich tradition especially in her family. See more of her work at sargentartgroup.com/ AuraSuarez.html.

Unique Baja flavor in Encinitas Modern Times opens after yearlong battle

By Kelli Kyle

ENCINITAS — Don’t let the name fool you — Death by Tequila in Encinitas may sound intimidating, but the Highway 101 hotspot is going for a different type of vibe. “I think it’s an eye catcher — Death by Tequila,” Angelo Sosa, chef-partner at the restaurant, explained about the name. “The death is the drink, and the resurrection is the food.” The Baja-style restaurant has artisanal food and drinks inspired by the culinary scene in Baja California in Mexico. Founded by Encinitas residents Jessica and Chad Mestler, the theme arose from the couple’s trips to Baja with their kids. They loved the farmto-table coastal cuisine, and wanted to create a unique version of this experience in North County. “We’re for locals by locals,” Sosa said. “Chad and Jessica dine out a lot, and they just felt like this kind of concept would fit the niche — and more importantly feed the locals.” And Death by Tequila — also known as “DxT” — delivers on this pledge. A North County artist or business crafted everything from the dishware to the signage to the art on the walls. Additionally, all of the ingredients in the food and the drinks come from

local farms, which Sosa said is one of the restaurant’s top priorities. “We focus on the farm … it’s all about our sourcing,” Sosa said. “Building those relationships and nurturing them — we really take it to heart.” As for the tequila, the bar is stocked with a wide variety of boutique, smallbatch bottles. Head bartender Alonzo Albarran said he loves when people start to appreciate a drink they may have previously written off after one bad experience. “Obviously, if you drank 10 shots of tequila,

you’re not going to like it the next day,” Albarran said. “I like to change people’s state of mind.” Often adorned with locally sourced flowers, colorful salts and other garnish, the drinks’ aesthetic, Albarran said, gets customers excited to taste them. “If you see something visually pretty, that’s a plus,” Albarran said. “You know you’re going to like it because it’s pretty.” As more Baja-style restaurants pop up around the county, Sosa said it’s a trend that just makes sense, given San Diego’s proximity to Mexico. “I don’t know why it took so long, but I think it’s like an inevitable transformation,” Sosa said. “We’re just so close.” On the horizon for Death by Tequila is a new brunch, which has a soft debut on Sunday, Oct. 28. They’re also launching te-

quila flights and a more experimental menu, and are discussing a composting effort. Sosa said many of these moves are influenced by what the locals want to see. “We’re listening to what the demand is, what the need is, so we can constantly evolve and weigh how we can be better,” Sosa said. At the end of the day, the Death by Tequila staff wants to create a unique vibe that Sosa and the other owners felt was previously missing from the Encinitas downtown. They strive to foster a chic, hip atmosphere, while also designing an incredible culinary experience. “If the music is a little pumping, and it’s a little bit more high energy — that’s what we want to do,” Sosa said. “We want to offer a humble experience with good food and good drink and we sincerely believe that.”

ENCINITAS — Soulful Motown music competes with conversation and laughter as families and friends drink craft beer and enjoy plant-based cuisine. This was the scene at last weekend’s grand opening. But behind the vintage-style ceramic cats and macramé hanging plants is a more recent story of how Modern Times came to exist in Encinitas. In summer 2017, Modern Times submitted a proposal to open a tasting room in downtown Encinitas. The Coast News reported that the city Planning Commission approved the project in a 3-2 vote in July 2017, but not without debate. The proposal was contested by the Encinitas Citizens Committee, a group of residents who advocate for less alcohol-serving establishments in downtown. In the face of these appeals, Modern Times pulled the proposal in fall 2017. They later found a compromise, submitting a revised plan for a restaurant that would also serve beer. “We totally understood what was behind the concerns that were brought forward, and wanted to do our best to work with the city to address them, rather than bailing out,” Reed said. In January 2018, the revised plans were approved in a 5-0 vote. The Encinitas Citizens Committee pushed for an

arrangement between the city and Modern Times, requiring the restaurant to share its food and alcohol sales numbers. If the beer sales outweigh the food sales, committee representative Shirley Finch said in an emailed statement that the group would urge the city to investigate. “ECC will insist that the city of Encinitas investigate Modern Times to determine if there was misrepresentation on the part of Modern Times management,” Finch wrote. “If there was, or if Modern Times is not able to operate as a restaurant, ECC will actively seek to have the approval of Modern Times revoked.” While Modern Times experienced heavy backlash from the Encinitas Citizens Committee, they also had many residents support their plans, according to Reed. “A bunch of amazing Encinitas residents were kind enough to come to City Council meetings, write letters on our behalf, and help us clear the requisite hurdles to make this whole thing possible,” Reed said. Even with the pushback, Modern Times was eager to pursue the North County location, which Reed explains had been an idea for years. In addition to the now three San Diego locations, Modern Times also has shops in Los Angeles and Portland, Oregon. The Far West Lounge TURN TO MODERN TIMES ON 20

I

n sports, as in life, a big win deserves a big wine. You would have to have had a long nap if you didn’t know that the biggest recent event in sports was the World Series won by the Boston Red Sox over the Los Angeles Dodgers. I have been a Red Sox fan for life. I grew up with them and laughed and cried with them. My hero then and now was Ted Williams, all-time great hitter with the Sox, who was a native San Diegan and who had a freeway named after him out here. With a gathering of close friends, I timed the opening of a Napa Valley Caymus Special Selection Cabernet 2013 to the final moment of victory for the Red Sox. I promised that to my group, because in my judgment, this current vintage of Special Selection cannot be beat. When it was all over, the final game count for Boston for the 2018 season was 119 wins and only 52 losses through the World Series. Only two teams in baseball history had done better, and they were both spelled New York Yankees, the “Evil Empire” of baseball. I grew up idolizing Ted Williams and loathing the Yankees in any shape or form. I grew into the wine business, loving the other red in this story. Caymus is a wine that I believe is one of the best ever in California. The best expression of that red is the Caymus Special Selection, the only wine to win the “World Series” of wine, No. 1 in the most prestigious wine publication in the world, Wine Spectator, and they did it twice. Now the Sox have won another World Series in this century. In 2004, after 86 years of frustration, they beat the Cardinals four straight games after giving it to the dreaded Yankees in game seven in the American league playoffs. First

championship since 1918. Then in 2007 and 2013, they claimed those World Series titles but never in consecutive years. The Yankees have won consecutive World Series titles in the 1998 and 1999 seasons. Watch out Yankees, the Red Sox are coming to get you, again. Visit the baseball World Series champions at redsox.com. Hot list of cool new wines

California’s harvest is winding down into November, with the rich-bodied reds just being crushed and fermented. The excitement is building as it’s being labeled a great harvest with a substantial increase in production over 2017. Napa Valley will be just 4 percent of the total California harvest. However, Napa Valley will account for 50 percent of the value of all California wines sold. Did you know that the state of Washington comes in second and is the fastest-growing in the U.S.? I’ve got a great new list of new wine hitting the shelves, kind of a preview of my year-end Top Ten Tastes that you will want to try. The 2015 Quilceda

Creek Cabernet collection tops this preview, right up there with the best of the reds and specifically Cabernets. All are an extraordinary experience. It’s not unusual to pay close to $200 for these top-shelf wines, so I recommend their “CVR” (Columbia Valley Red) blend current vintage 2016, with aromatic black and blue fruits laced with subtle minerality. It’s a combination of 87 percent Cabernet, 7 percent Merlot and splashes of Cab Franc and Petite Verdot ($85). “It’s all about pleasure,” comments Paul Golitzin, Quilceda Creek’s winemaker. Orin Swift is operated by the Napa Valley legend Dave Phinney of Prisoner fame and other wine projects around the world. He took a furlough from making Prisoner-style Zinfandel in 2009, spending eight years away from what made him famous. Now his non-competition agreement is past and he is back with a Zinfandel monster wine called, appropriately, 8 Years in the Desert Label 1. It’s actually a Zin, Petite Sirah and Syrah 2017 blend, to warm up any cool night and dinner party ($49.95).

Finally, a name you should know if you’re a steady reader of our column, Paul Hobbs, a brilliant crafter of fine wines in Sonoma and Napa, has a 2016 vintage of his brilliant Crossbarn Cabernet series. His comments on the 2016 should make you run, not

Del Mar Streetscape project to break ground this month By Lexy Brodt

DEL MAR — After over two decades of anticipation, residents can expect to see a revitalized downtown corridor as early as July 2019. The Downtown Streetscape project is a long-awaited plan to revamp the downtown thoroughfare of Camino Del Mar — from 9th street through the north entrance of the Plaza — implementing new sidewalks, lane striping, lighting and various landscaping improvements. The project aims to increase safety and walkability in Del Mar, while also beautifying the stretch with new furnishings, trees and plant life. At the Oct. 29 City Council meeting, council members voted 5-0 to ap-

prove a construction contract with Tri-Group Construction and Development, Inc. Construction will start as early as late November, though the bulk of activity will begin after the new year. Construction will be implemented in one phase — rather than the original multi-phase approach — in order to minimize disruption to the community and avoid future cost increases. The construction contract is for about $5.1 million, with the total cost coming in at $6,764,000. The project will be funded in large part through Measure Q funds — a 1 percent hike in sales tax approved by voters in 2016 — as well as through the city’s existing Streetscape Project budget.

There is an approximately $1.5 million gap in funding for the project. Options for financing the remaining costs will be brought in front of the City Council come 2019. Plans to revitalize the downtown corridor go back as far as 1996, when Spurlock Landscape Architects drafted the “Streetscape Plan” — envisioning improvements across the entire span of the city’s central corridor, from Carmel Valley Road to Via de la Valle. In 2013, the city embarked on a sidewalk connectivity project to increase pedestrian walkability in Del Mar, with a total of nine sections running from Jimmy Durante Boulevard to

Via de la Valle. Downtown Streetscape will soon be the seventh completed section, and according to staff, the longest and most comprehensive due to its central location. After several months of public engagement, City Council approved designs for the Downtown Streetscape Project in February 2018. Phase one was originally to begin in spring 2018, but bids came in “significantly higher” than anticipated, and the project was stalled. In mid-September, the city put the project out to bid once more, with an estimated total cost of $7.1 million. Five bids came in, with San Diego-based Tri-City Construction and Develop-

ment’s being the lowest. City Council members expressed excitement about moving forward with the Downtown Streetscape project. Mayor Dwight Worden said the project will allow the city to do its part in making downtown “more alive and more vibrant.” “What we can do is fix up the infrastructure, make the streets more attractive, make it a pleasant place to be, and maybe that will stimulate the private owners to do their part,” Worden said.

History flows on Erie Canal

Besides, the canal system had been expanded from its original network and renamed the Barge Canal, which is what we called it. So I’m getting reacquainted with the second-longest canal in the world (China’s is longer) on this crisp October day. Canals were a major force for commerce and transportation when they began operating in the early- to mid-1800s. The Erie Canal, completed in 1825, ran 363 miles from Albany, New York to Buffalo, New York. It was 40 feet wide and 4 feet deep, and travelers could get from one end of the other in five days, not the two weeks it took to traverse the route in a crowded, noisy, dusty, bone-shaking stagecoach. (And you thought your last airplane ride was bad … ) People and goods continued to move up and down the canal by shallow-draft barges until the railroads came along. The canal-versus-railroad competition continued until the early 1900s. Today, the Erie and other canals in this country are mostly sources of nostalgia and outdoor recreation. They draw boaters, kayakers, bikers, hikers, dog-walkers and looky-loos who make good use of the water and the former tow-

T

he song I learned many years ago in grade school (let’s just say it was sometime in the last millennium) keeps running through my head as I walk along the portion of the Erie Canal that passes through Pittsford, N.Y. I've got a mule and her name is Sal Fifteen years on the Erie Canal She's a good old worker and a good old pal Fifteen years on the Erie Canal We've hauled some barges in our day Filled with lumber, coal and hay And every inch of the way we know From Albany to Buffalo When I sang this song as a kid, I really had no concept of the history that it invoked. And quite honestly, even though I grew up in Rochester, New York (eight miles north of Pittsford), I don’t remember having actually seen the Erie Canal.

TODAY’S ERIE CANAL in New York is a source of recreation and relaxation, but when construction (digging) was completed in 1825, the canal was a tremendous boost to commerce and transportation. It cut costs, and travel time from Albany to Buffalo went from two weeks to five days. Photo by E’Louise Ondash

path where mules and horses once “hauled those barges … filled with lumber, coal and hay.” And lucky for us, and unlike in other areas of the country, most of the Erie Canal still exists. The towpath I’m hiking through Pittsford (http: //www.townofpittsford.org/home-discover) is lined with enormous, lush elm, black oak, hemlock and maple trees. Many of their trunks are nearly smothered in some sort of prolific vine, and their leaves are just beginning to change from summer green to gold,

orange and red. The path along this segment of canal near Rochester, New York, is now part of the larger Erie Canalway Trail — a wide, clean and flat thoroughfare that seems to go on forever. It makes me feel as though I really could walk to Albany or Buffalo. In fact, you can walk or bike that distance and more if you have the time. Most of the trail is groomed, safe for all ages and from what I can see, accessible. The signage is excellent and the trail passes by locks and low

bridges, historic sites, picturesque villages, boutiques and restaurants and plenty of photo-worthy scenery. Many of the commercial districts of the towns along the canal are just feet from the trail or nearby, so you can enjoy gourmet offerings like the ginormous sweet and savory crepes (excellent gluten-free buckwheat crepes available) at Simply Crepes in Pittsford (http://simplycrepes.com). In 2000, the U.S. Congress established the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor, which in-

cludes the Erie Canal. According to the National Park Service, this corridor “stretches 524 miles across the full expanse of upstate New York, from Buffalo to Albany and north along the Champlain Canal to Whitehall. It threads 234 diverse communities connected by a waterway that changed not just the landscape of our state, but also our nation and its history.” Visit https://eriecanalway.org and www.nps. gov/erie/index.htm.

Flu-season battle prep small talk jean gillette

I

’m writing this from behind a barricade of disinfectant wipes and various cold-prevention treatments. I’m trying to keep my head down, as I am surrounded by hordes of vicious, Hun-like viruses scavenging endlessly for a purchase in our ears, nose, throat, stomach or lungs. As I write this letter from the battlefield, I want you to know that I am not only fighting this war for myself, but for all the folks back home. No matter who in the house has a cold or flu, the mom suffers. So far,

we moms have pretty much held our ground, in spite of being short of ammunition. We’ve been told that if we take proper precautions, chances of taking a hit from a flu sniper are pretty low. We moms are all rather skeptical, though, since the precautions are to either wash our hands every 10 minutes or avoid breathing. I was considering that, but I had to help a child who was vomiting get to the nurse’s office, and then run across town to the only drugstore that carries the gummy bear throat lozenges. I have been washing my hands like they suggested, and now they closely resemble the backside of a chapped alligator. While cases of flu are turning up here and there, the biggest worry here at the front is the cold viruses.

They outnumber us about a zillion to one. Don’t worry about me, though, because I have stocked my personal armory with one or two homeopathic remedies that make me almost bulletproof. I have battled back two direct attacks with my favorite concoction, which is an orange-flavored fizzy tablet that you put in water and drink every few hours, as soon as you realize you’ve been exposed. It is loaded with all those herbs I can scarcely pronounce, like forsythia and Chinese vitex plus vitamins. While it still sort of seems like magic, it really helps. Back this up with some nighttime cold capsules, and I am good to go. This last attack was a close one, though. The virus had me pinned to my pillow

all day Sunday, but after quarts of fizzy drink and a bag of zinc lozenges, I drove the invaders back past the DMZ. My nose is still a little drippy, but I’ve shaken that overall crummy feeling you get when the enemy first starts to set up camp. I love the smell of orange drink in the morning. Meanwhile, I am constantly checking out the other items in our arsenal. There are some enormous Echinacea tablets, but I’m not sure I could swallow them. I do love to load up on the vitamin C armor, though, which lets me rationalize spending $3.50 for a bottle of designer smoothie. Once I run out of money, I switch to frozen cranberry juice. Well, I’d better get some shut-eye. Those viruses can spot sleep deprivation at 100 yards. Write when you can and thanks for that package of chicken soup. Sarge says it doesn’t do any good, but it sure makes us feel better. Love, Mom

Trial date set for woman who accused candidate By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — A North County woman accused of falsely accusing former State Assembly candidate Phil Graham of sexual misconduct will go to trial on Nov. 13, prosecutors said. Nichole Burgan, whose trial was set to begin on Halloween, will appear at 8:15 a.m. Nov. 13 in Judge K. Michael Kirkman’s courtroom,

an official with the District Attorney’s office said. The District Attorney’s office has charged Burgan with misdemeanor filing of a false police report stemming from the claims made during the lead up to the June 5 primary election. Graham, who failed to advance to the Nov. 6 general election after finishing third during the primary, is

the stepson of former California Gov. Pete Wilson. Burgan said that Graham forcibly kissed her during the early morning hours of May 14 after a night of drinking at the 1st Street Bar in Encinitas. But variations in her story to different media outlets and a series of restraining orders filed against Burgan in the past that accused her

of filing false reports raised doubts about her claims. The Sheriff’s Department investigated and disproved the claims after reviewing video surveillance inside and outside of the bar and interviewing witnesses. Records show that charges were filed against Burgan on June 14, and she was arraigned July 3 and charged with a single misdemeanor count of filing a false report, which carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. The criminal complaint alleges that Burgan, on or about and between May 20 and May 23 “did unlawfully report to a peace officer that a misdemeanor had been committed, knowing such report to be false.” Graham has declined to comment on the matter through a spokesperson.

With Mario Lopez, my little brother, who is 12 years old, recently headed up his own team to raise $16,000 for another house and reached out to Courtney Lopez. Mario and Courtney Lopez donated $1,000 and are having me on their radio show next week. Gabriel also asked Phaedra Parks to help, who sent $1000 and is planning to bring her sons to help build a home with us soon.” She also appeared on several news shows including “Good Morning America” and “Headline News” talking about her Build A Miracle projects. But in the end, it is all about the bonds she has been able to forge with a variety of people from her fellow volunteers, Build A Miracle, KIDBOX and the families she has met in Tijuana. “I’ve created a bond with so many different people because of this, and it makes me look forward to working with them every year and getting to see all of the kids in Mexico,” she said.

Retro clocks, TV dinners made of wool and wooden tennis rackets adorn old-school mustard wallpaper patterned with geometric shapes. In an email, Modern Times Communications Manager Dan Reed, described the vibe as “mid-century maximalist.” Downtown Encinitas, which is already home to several restaurants serving craft brews, seemed like a fitting place for Modern Times to set up its quirky, mid-century shop. Housed in a beautiful classic building on Highway 101, Reed said the team

“mostly an A student,” and said her favorite subject is English “especially when I get to write creative essays and debate.” Her volunteerism and philanthropic spirit has also rubbed off on her younger brother, who is going to start building his own team’s house through Build A Miracle on Nov. 3. He has headed up his own team, which raised $16,000 this past summer, and an anonymous donor has matched Daniella and Gabriel’s fundraising with $16,000 to build even an additional home this year, according to Benitez. As for the rest of the family, Daniella has an older sister, Alexis, 25, who she “looks up to.” Her dad is Mexican-American, and “a big part of why she does this in Mexico.” Her mother is Arab-American, and “is one of my biggest inspirations.” In her spare time, the teen is on the Varsity B Tennis Team at Cathedral Catholic High School, likes to sing, and volunteers locally, in addition to working with Build A Miracle. Once high school is finished, Daniella said she hopes to go on to college and to study to work as either a psychologist or an attorney. “And, I will continue my volunteer work and pass it onto my future family,” she said. wanted to preserve the original architecture, which added to the nostalgic vibe. “It pretty much knocked it out of the park for the aforementioned needs and aesthetic,” Reed said. “We’ve gotten a lot of comments about the playful nostalgia of the setting, which is definitely the vibe we wanted to foster.” The Far West Lounge has over 30 taps of beer, nitro cold brew, a full kitchen and a mini-mart with Modern Times merchandise. Open every day from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Reed said the team is looking forward to becoming an active part of the Encinitas restaurant scene. “We feel right at home here,” Reed said. “There’s definitely a common appreciation for world-class beer, boundary-pushing cuisine, and great art, as well as an abundance of chill vibes, all of which we are giant fans of.” Aaron Burgin contributed to this report.

Middle schoolers keep eye on local wildlife CARLSBAD — Good public policy is based on sound facts, and middle schoolers at Pacific Ridge School are helping the City of Carlsbad collect data to inform future decisions about wildlife corridors and protected land. As part of the school’s service learning program, 7th- and 8th-graders are programming, installing and monitoring cameras placed along city hiking and walking trails near the school’s campus. In addition to human traffic, the 24-hour, motion detector cameras capture images of wildlife that also use the trails. Once the students review and catalog the data, the information will help the city better understand its wildlife corridors and how wildlife and humans use them together. “Students are motivated when what they do makes a tangible difference

in the real world,” said Alison Behr, Director of Pacific Ridge’s Service Learning program. “Working on the camera project empowers students to have agency and know they can contribute to city planning. Our campus is surrounded by beauti-

ful open space, so they can learn more about stewardship in our own backyard.” Students have been excited by what the cameras have revealed so far. “It’s cool to see what happens on the trail and we’re in charge of our cameras so can change the set-

tings depending on what we want to see,” said 8th grader and Rancho Santa Fe resident Maya Janese. “We’ve seen a bunch of coyote families using the trail and even got a photo of a coyote hunting a rabbit.” Plans for later in the year include creating information posters about wildlife and native species for trailhead bulletins and laser printing placards to identify native species along the trail. The service group is one of over 40 at the Carlsbad private school. Middle school students rotate through trimester-long service work with seniors, disabled adults, the homeless, underserved preschoolers, local elementary school students, animals and the environment. High school students initiate and lead their own service groups, addressing a wide range of issues, both local and global.

Weight loss and breast cancer risk Ask the Doctors

Dr. Elizabeth Ko

Dr. Eve Glazier

DEAR DOCTOR: I recently read an article that said even a little bit of weight loss -- just 5 percent of your total body weight -- can lessen your risk of breast cancer. Why is that? Does it hold true for women who are of normal weight? DEAR READER: The link between being overweight and breast cancer risk is somewhat complex. Having more fat tissue is associated with higher levels of the hormone estrogen. This, in turn, has been connected to an increase in the risk of breast cancer. That extra weight can often result in higher levels of insulin, which has also been linked to an increase in breast cancer risk. Weight gain is also associated with a rise in inflammation, though whether this plays a role in cancer is still being studied. Meanwhile, some research has connected this rise in breast cancer risk to excess weight that was gained in adulthood but finds that it may not apply to women who were overweight or obese as children. And to top things off, as these studies become deliberately more inclusive and diverse, it appears that ethnicity and race also play a role in whether or not excess weight adds to an individual's breast cancer risk. The study you're referring to comes from City of Hope, a cancer treatment and research center here in Southern California. The impetus was to learn if weight loss might reverse the increased risk of breast cancer in women who were overweight or obese. The scientists also wanted to know whether the timing of that weight loss would matter.

They drew from data compiled by the Women's Health Initiative, a long-term study of health outcomes in older women overseen by the National Institutes of Health. The 61,000 women in the breast cancer study, all post-menopause, had normal mammograms at the start of the 11year period of the study. The researchers compared the health data of women who lost (and maintained the loss) of at least 5 percent of their total body weight with the health data of those whose weight remained the same. One of the takeaways, as you mentioned, was that the 5 percent weight loss was associated with a reduced breast cancer risk. Unfortunately, this study doesn't answer your question about weight loss and a reduction of breast cancer risk among women who are not overweight. The women in the study who lost weight started out with an average body mass index, or BMI, of 29. That's deep into the overweight category, which is a BMI between 25 and 29, and bumping up against the lower threshold of obesity, which is a BMI of 30 and above. However, body weight isn't the only factor to consider. The presence of abdominal fat, independent of body weight, has been linked with an increased risk of several types of cancer, including colon, rectal and pancreatic cancers. It's also a risk factor in a number of metabolic diseases. Our advice is to reduce your weight and your middle with a healthful, whole-food diet and regular exercise. And, if you're regulars here, you pretty much know what's next: Please, no smoking. Eve Glazier, M.D., MBA, is an internist and associate professor of medicine at UCLA Health.

BRAD AUSMUS was introduced last month as the new manager of the Los Angeles Angels. The Del Mar resident previously managed the Detroit Tigers for four seasons. Courtesy photo

Angels pin their hopes on Del Mar’s Ausmus sports talk jay paris

B

rad Ausmus has been fitted for his wings. The Los Angeles Angels plucked Ausmus from the heavenly waves off Del Mar to ride to their rescue as their manager. Ausmus is back being a skipper in the majors after spending a year in the Angels’ front office. “We want a championship,’’ Ausmus said. Don’t they all, that impressive collection of men in our parts that have turned North County into a cradle of major-league managers. Even the most ardent Dodgers hater had to feel for Cardiff’s Dave Roberts. In his third season as the Los Angeles Dodgers manager, Roberts, a former Padres player and coach, lost the World Series in consecutive seasons. Seemingly every maneuver he made backfired with the Boston Red Sox taking the Fall Classic in five games. All signs indicate Roberts will return next season, which is the right move. But those jeers he heard from Dodgers fans when introduced before Game 5 didn’t go unnoticed. No one in baseball can ignore what Bud Black, the

Colorado Rockies manager, pulled off. The Solana Beach resident fell in the National League Divisional Series to the Milwaukee Brewers, but Black, the ex-Padres manager, still deserves a toast. His offense went flat but he’s the first manager in franchise history to direct the Rockies to consecutive playoff appearances. That circles us back to Ausmus, who was off the dugout’s top step for just a season after a four-year stint managing the Detroit Tigers. He spent his season out of uniform diving into the analytic formulas which drive baseball as a special assistant to Angels general manager Billy Eppler. Ausmus, a Dartmouth graduate, was seemingly a quick learner. He was smart enough to know the game had evolved from when he played it for 18 big-league seasons. Old-school was old-hat to the 49-year-old Ausmus. But he wasn’t as keen on the nuances of the numbers-driven answers and the digestion of data and trends which fuel the strategies of major-league clubs. “I needed to adapt,’’ said Ausmus, while noting how advanced the Angels are in utilizing statistics. “Analytics are part of the game and I had to adapt. I wanted to find out more on how we can help the players on the field be better and help the team win. That is why we are here, to win baseball games.’’ It’s just how clubs go about reaching that goal

that has changed since Ausmus, an All-Star in 1999, first started. But the threetime Gold Glove Award winner isn’t new to tinkering with digits. “I’ve been using numbers since 2000,’’ Ausmus said. “But the information was a lot more vague and a little more raw.’’ The Angels are banking on Ausmus being polished from his run with the Tigers, which included an American League Central division title and an overall mark of 314-322. Ausmus is eager to learn and win with the Angels. “His curiosity, competitiveness and knowledge showed us he was the right person for the job,’’ Eppler said. Those remarks brought a smile to Ausmus during a press conference in which he wore a suit. That it wasn’t a wetsuit solicited a chuckle from his Del Mar surfing buddies. Ausmus is usually quick with a laugh, too, and his quote from years’ past is still among the best. While he excelled with the mitt and his noggin’, his bat wasn’t very much as a career .251 hitter. “I feel like when they say I’m one of the smarter players, it’s just their way of saying that I don’t hit very much,’’ Ausmus said. The Angels hope they’ve smacked a homer with the hiring of Ausmus. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com. Follow him @jparis8_sports.

Hearing postponed for ex-NFL player accused of rape ENCINITAS — A Superior Court arraignment was rescheduled from Oct. 30 to Nov. 15 for ex-NFL tight end Kellen Winslow II, who is accused of raping two women in Encinitas earlier this year and raping an unconscious 17-year-old girl 15 years ago. Winslow, 35, is charged with felony counts of kidnapping, forcible rape and rape of an unconscious person. The son of former San Diego Charger legend Kellen Winslow is also charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure and trespassing. A

trial date could be set at the hearing. Earlier this month, the alleged victim in the 2003 case testified that she was raped at a home in Scripps Ranch after having a few drinks. In the newer case, Winslow II is accused of luring a 54-year-old transient — who was hitchhiking — into his Hummer for a ride, then raping her on March 17, and raping a 58-year-old homeless woman on May 13. Prosecutors allege the defendant picked up the old-

er of the two victims, who he knew from a prior encounter, and offered to take her to have coffee but instead took her to a secluded area and raped her, then threatened to kill her if she told anyone. The defendant faces life in prison if convicted. Winslow II grew up in San Diego and attended the University of Miami. He played for four NFL teams between 2004 and 2013. — City News Service
