Garden club introduces new culinary program By Patty McCormac

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club launched its new culinary program this spring and at its helm is Mary Platis, an experienced educator, caterer, foodie and blogger who is brimming with ideas on how to bring together the community, its food and the garden club. She has already set up a series of cooking classes and cookbook author signings and now she is working on bringing a farmers market to the Village and establishing a community sustainable agriculture program as well. “My goal is to bring the community together with food for fundraisers, author signings, healthful presentations and nutritional seminars,” she said. “I want to engage in conversation around an open table.

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association decided at its May 19 meeting to move forward in pursuing the purchase of 47.7 acres on the southeastern corner of Rambla de las Flores and El Acebo by having it appraised. If the process continues to fruition, the acreage would be purchased by the Association as open space. “This is the first step in the process,” said Tom Lang, Association president. He said after the appraisal, which will take until about mid June, there will be an open meeting where members can give input on the proposed purchase and possibly a community-wide vote. “I would love to send it out to a vote of the members,” said Deb Plummer, director.“I don’t want to encumber the rest of the members or future boards since we don’t have the money in the coffers to pay for it.” The Association formally adopted an Open Space program in 1996 to acquire land to be held as open space to help protect the rural character of Rancho Santa Fe. Since the program was established, the Association has purchased six parcels totaling more than 100 acres at a total cost of $14,935,000. The last parcel purchased was the Osuna Ranch in 2006. A recent survey of members of the Covenant determined it was highly important to them to retain the rural nature of the area and so was purchasing open space. “We had held off on this until the surveys were returned,” Lang said. Paul Slater, who represents the owners of the property and gave a presentation during the meeting, said now is the time to act. “There are few opportunities where tracts of land this large and this unique come available,” Slater said. “You’ve probably passed by it TURN TO PURCHASE ON A15

ODD School celebrates annual Ocean Week FILES


By Patty McCormac


Ellenbeth Wachs, 48, was arrested in Lakeland, Fla., in May on a complaint that she “simulated” a sex act in front of a minor. In a March incident, Wachs, after receiving medication for her multiple sclerosis, was awakened at 8:30 a.m. by her 10-year-old neighbor boy’s clamorous basketball game, near Wachs’ window. After unsuccessfully beseeching the boy for quiet, Wachs — hoping, perhaps, to make a point about noisy neighbors — began moaning out the window (while remaining out of sight), “Oh, John! Oh! John!” over and over at increased shrillness as if in the throes of orgasm.The basketball-playing stopped, but the incident was not a teaching moment. The boy’s father, Otto Lehman, called the police and filed for an order of protection against Wachs.

Compelling Explanations

• Dalia Dippolito, 30, of Boynton Beach, Fla., was convicted in May of hiring a hit man to kill her husband, but not before offering an ultramodern defense: Her lawyer told the jury that it was all a fake scheme to pitch a realityTV show about one spouse’s ordering a hit on the other (and that her husband, Michael, had originally come up with the idea). As Dippolito’s plan unfolded, her boyfriend alerted police, who set up a sting and witnessed Dippolito dictating exactly what she wanted done. (In fact, the sting itself was captured on video for the “Cops” TV show.) Michael denied any involvement,and the jury appeared not to give her story any credence. • “Wrong” Impressions: (1) The Sergeants Benevolent Association, fighting back in April against corruption charges (that its NYPD officers often “fix” traffic tickets for celebrities, high officials and selected “friends”) claimed in a recorded message reported in The New York Times that such fixes are merely “courtesy,” not corruption. (2) A 20-year-old Jersey City, N.J., gym member claimed “criminal sexual contact” in March, acknowledging that while she had given a male club therapist permission to massage her breasts and buttocks, she had been under the impression that he is gay. When another gym member told her that the therapist has a girlfriend, she called the police. • Quite a Disease, That Lyme: (1) Marilyn Michose, 46, was referred for medical evaluation in May after she was spotted roaming the lobby of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City wearing neon pink panties on top of her street clothes, with a .25-caliber Beretta visible in her jacket pocket, and speaking gibberish. According to Michose’s mother, Marilyn had overmedicated for her Lyme disease. (2) A restraining order, to keep away from TURN TO ODD FILES ON A19

RANCHO SANTA FE — For the 19th year, Ocean Week opened with a splash at R. Roger Rowe School in Rancho Santa Fe. Activities got underway on May 23 with assemblies for the students at the school’s Performing Arts Center. They were greeted at the door by a big blue octopus, which seemed to be singing “Octopus’s Garden” by the Beatles. Also in the entry were posters created by each grade, that represented the area of the ocean which they’ve studied this year. Artist Teresa Espaniola helped students connect with the project through art. The younger grades put together a project made with beach toys lost on the beach. It’s title was “Keep track of your beach toys.” “This is the age to reach them,” she said motioning to the first through third graders sitting on the floor of the assembly. She said these students get so enthusiastic, it is hard for their parents not to join in. The upper grades built a wave filled with trash picked up from the beach to illustrate what ends up in the ocean. Once the assemblies got underway, the first graders sang, “Oceans of Fun,” and another song about keeping an

eye on beach toys and the middle school chorus sang, “Hey San Diego,” while the dance troupe brought the song to life. During this special week, students in grades kindergarten through eight concentrate on the habitat of the ocean in a partnership with Scripps. Roberta Dean, the liaison between Scripps and the school, said the idea for the week began after staff member Stacey Halboth remembered attending a workshop at Berkeley in 1985. That culminated the special week of learning, which concentrated on oceans. “Now it has become year round curriculum,” Dean said. “Can you believe it’s been 19 years? I don’t know what I’m going to do for the 20th,” she said with a laugh. She said each grade learns about a different part of the ocean. Kindergarten learns about ponds; first grade, rocky sea shores; second grade, sandy beaches; third grade, wetlands; fourth grade, kelp forests; fifth grade, the open ocean; sixth grade, coral reefs; seventh grade, deep sea; and eighth grade, polar habitat. “By the time they get through this school they have a huge understanding of marine life and the oceans,”Dean said. The weeklong event included open houses on both

Daphne’s announces Slater as brand ambassador By Christina Macone-Greene

The Carlsbad corporate office of Daphne’s California Greek has something to be happy about. They’ve recently signed on 10-time world champion surfer Kelly Slater as its new partner and brand ambassador in their commitment towards a healthier lifestyle. The timing of Slater’s arrival is perfect. Daphne’s California Greek is launching its brand redevelopment, which hones in on eating well and staying active. Slater, 39, will be involved in an array of ways. Slater will provide his input on healthier menu options and will be on hand for a blog and social media contributions. It’s the company’s hope that Slater’s wisdom regarding health and wellness will leave an indelible imprint. “I’ve been looking for the right opportunity to do something with a healthy food or restaurant group,” Slater said. “I think Daphne’s has a great platform to get the word out

and is right in line with a lot of my ideals about food, so I’m glad to be on board with them.” According to Daphne’s California Greek Chief Executive Officer, William Trefethen, Slater’s involvement means everything to the company since he is the epitome of healthy living. Slater’s iconic presence will offer something

unique and special. “Kelly hardly endorses anything,” Trefethen said. “It was a long-term process to get him onboard.” That process lasted nearly three months. Also on his list of new duties: Slater is a founding member of Team Daphne’s, which encompasses athletes,

artists, and musicians that will make a positive impact in their communities. Slater, of course, will have his eye on surfers. He will be at the helm in recruiting a surf team of upand-coming talented males and females. Trefethen said their company is eager to work with Slater in supporting the surf community by sponsoring these athletes. The amateur surf team is expected to have over a dozen teammates — and a majority of them will more than likely come from California. “This is a huge deal in the surfing word,”Trefethen said. Because of the healthy direction the company is going with their brand, Trefethen said it was important for them to bring someone of Slater’s stature on board who would also be at the forefront for what they believe in.

RANCHO SANTA FE — A local priest is leading the movement for the sainthood of Fr. Aloysius Ellacuria, a Claretian missionary priest who ministered in the Los Angeles and San Diego areas until his death in 1981. Fr. Kevin Manion, who was raised in Rancho Santa Fe, was his volunteer secretary and driver before entering the seminary himself in 1981. Manion said he was so impressed with the priest that he began taping his sermons and as part of the process he wishes to finish transcribing them for this and future generations. “I was very interested in his homilies,” Manion said.“I think they were out of this world and I followed him around with a tape recorder.I felt the sermon content was unique. I felt it was important to document them.” Now the project is an important part of the campaign for sainthood. “I have it on my heart to stay true to the duty of trust I feel I was given by Fr. Aloysius and finish a project I started in 1971,” said Manion, a supply priest who is helping at Nativity Catholic Church in Rancho Santa Fe. Manion filed the petition for sainthood in April, the first step in the process. Next will be the opening of a cause of Beatification followed by Canonization, TURN TO PRIEST ON

Female soldiers are losing the fight By Cokie Roberts and Steven V. Roberts

Women warriors battling in Afghanistan and Iraq will remain second-class citizens, owing to action in the House of Representatives this week.Though a commission appointed by Congress recommended lifting the official ban on women in combat, a proposal to do that in this year’s defense bill failed. The vote shortchanges women trying to climb the ranks of military brass and flies in the face of war-zone reality. “I’d be hard-pressed to say that any woman who serves in Afghanistan today or who’s served in Iraq over the last few years did so without facing the same risk as their male counterparts.” That’s the reality for the more than 260,000 women deployed in America’s two wars over the past 10 years, according to Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. But a 1994 ban on female assignments to units “whose primary mission is to engage in direct combat on the ground” prevents many military women from moving up the promotion ladder — which relies on combat success — while doing nothing to protect their safety. “In Iraq, the way the war is, anywhere you are is the front lines,” Marine Mary Carnes told NPR at the height of that conflict. Experiences like hers prompted Congress in 2009 to create the commission to study women and minorities in the military. In March, when the commission recommended lifting the restriction on combat duty, it cited the ban as one of the reasons there are so few high-ranking female officers. But resistance to change runs hard, especially in the ranks of some retired military who can’t fathom women going “nose-to-nose with the bad guys, living in the mud, eating what’s on your back, no hygiene and no TV,” as retired Marine Lt. Gen. Frank Petersen described it when a panel of military women appeared before the commission. “How many of you would volunteer to live like that?” “I have lived like that,” shot back Tammy Duckworth, who lost both of her legs in Iraq. Now No. 2 at Veterans Affairs, Duckworth insisted, “I’ve lived out there with the guys, and I would do it. It’s about the job.” Lots of military women have now lived like that, doing the job. No

one claims it’s easy. When Army Sgt. Kayla Williams recounted to NPR her six months as the only woman with a unit on a mountainside in Iraq, she admitted her buddies sometimes crossed the line from friendly teasing to harassment.But she thinks the official restrictions contributed to a sense that she was fair game. If women aren’t equals, she argues, men are less likely to respect them: “The fact that women can’t be in combat arms jobs allows us to be portrayed as less than fully soldiers.” Most of the canards against lifting the combat ban are downright insulting, given the heroics of many female fighters. The stereotypes — women aren’t tough enough, they will distract the men and destroy unit cohesion — have been proven false over and over. But to us here’s the most insulting argument: The country will sour on war if women are killed. That’s an insult to the 137 women who have lost their lives in the war zones, and it’s even more of an insult to the more than 5,000 men who have died. It implies that Americans care more about their daughters than their sons — that we will tolerate war as long as it’s men in those body bags but will turn against it when women are its victims. That reasoning would horrify any parent who has lost a son. But we’re likely to hear it again when Congress eventually does take up legislation to carry out the commission’s recommendations sanctioning what women are already doing — fighting and dying in battle zones. And even if a bill officially allowing women in combat passes, the Defense Department will have final say on when to implement it. Because the Pentagon is already dealing with what the spokesman calls a “significant cultural change” by lifting the “don’t ask,don’t tell”rule dealing with gays in the military, there’s no appetite for tackling another tricky issue right now. So one more generation of military women will leave their families, head into dangerous territory, some will die, and many will be injured — that we know. We also know that they won’t receive the promotions they deserve or achieve positions of leadership because of a piece of paper that tells them they may not serve in combat even as bombs burst all around them.

Surfing Madonna in eye of beholder An art instructor told me “Once you put down the brush and stop painting it no longer belongs to you.” Her point was in life, and art, people will see what they choose to see. Most Encinitas residents see the Surfing Madonna as a community gift. Business leaders of the Downtown Encinitas Merchants Association (DEMA) and Leucadia 101 business district see opportunity, saying, because of the Surfing Madonna, sales are up. While other cities spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to promote a favorable image, the Surfing Madonna has given the city free press money can’t buy. The Encinitas City Council sees it differently. Deputy Mayor Jerome Stocks said the artist “wanted to put the city between a rock and a hard place.”The council finds themselves in a situation of their own making. The council could make a “Madonna Motion” to change municipal code, but lack the political will to do so. Where residents see a gift, the Council sees a rock. Where merchants see opportunity, the council sees a hard place. Where the community sees beauty, the council sees graffiti.

ANDREW AUDET Life, Liberty and Leadership More than 85 percent of residents and 100 percent of Encinitas merchants speaking before the council asked that the Surfing Madonna remain where it is. An art curator said the art could last 10 years in its location. The council said the Madonna has to go. Stocks told the public he needed to be “the grown up in the room.” Did Stocks think the merchants and residents in the room were children for having a different view than him? Many found his comment puzzling. If the council is unwilling to support local merchants, whom do they support? DEMA merchants know you never look a gift horse in the mouth, and the Surfing Madonna is the gift that keeps on giving. Stocks said the Surfing Madonna has to go because it did not follow the established process. Councilwoman Kristin Gaspar said the city needed to follow city code

and not pick and choose. Thirty minutes earlier Stocks broke the process he and the city established for naming the Hall Park. Stocks ignored residents who submitted 170 names and Parks Commissioners who presented a final list of five names. Stocks had his own name for the park and made a motion to use the name he came up with, calling it a “community park.” When Councilwoman Teresa Barth rightly pointed out that under city code the park did not qualify to be called a community park, but did qualify to be called a “special use park,” Gaspar supported Stocks’ motion by “picking and choosing” to break the city code where she wanted to. Gaspar broke code and the process saying she wanted to “bring the community together.” What is bringing the community together is the free Surfing Madonna the public wants to keep and the council wants removed. What is tearing the community apart is the $50 million dollar “special use park” we can’t afford and haven’t built. Earlier this year Stocks, Gaspar TURN TO LIFE ON A17

TPHS cheerleaders lead workshop and fundraiser The Torrey Pines High School Cheer Squad will present a Cheerleading Fundamentals Workshop for youngsters ages 5 to 14 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. June 1 at the TPHS Quad, 3710 Del Mar Heights Road as a fundraiser. Participants will be grouped in classes according to age. The cheerleaders will teach cheerleading funda-

mentals such as basic cheer motions and jumps designed to help a child become a wellrounded cheerleader. Experienced cheerleaders as well as first-time cheerleaders are invited to brush up on the basic fundamentals of cheerleading with the TPHS Cheer coaches and the TPHS cheerleaders.

In a move that signals further expansion of its cancer services, Scripps Health held a groundbreaking celebration for a new $43.9 million radiation therapy center that will feature some of the most advanced technologies of its kind in the world for treating cancer. The new center is the latest development in Scripps’ expanding capabilities in cancer care. The 41,000-squarefoot center will be built on an 8-acre parcel at 10670 John Jay Hopkins Drive. With grading under way, construction for the building is expected to begin by June. The center is scheduled to open for patient care by the third quarter of 2012. The facility will include three new, state-of-the art linear accelerators: One TrueBeam STx linear accelerator — which will be the first of its kind in San Diego — and two Clinac linear accelerators, each manufactured by Varian Medical Systems of Palo Alto. TrueBeam STx technology choreographs various hightech systems — 3-D tumor imaging, beam delivery and motion management — to deliver external beam radiation therapy to the patient with unprecedented safety and accuracy. The FDA-approved technology can treat cancers any-

where in the body, including especially challenging cases in the brain, spine, lung, liver and prostate. There are currently fewer than 20 TrueBeam STx units in use worldwide. The closest unit to San Diego is in Palo Alto, with the majority of the units being used on the East Coast or overseas. Located on the Torrey Pines Mesa in La Jolla, the center will serve Scripps patients from across the region that require radiation therapies and offer patients access to clinical trials. The new center will also offer a patient education resource library, clinical research space, a healing garden, patient locker and gowning areas and physician offices. Costs to build and equip the radiation therapy center will be funded through a com-

bination of income from operations, debt financing and philanthropy. The new center will consolidate Scripps’ two existing radiation oncology centers, which are now housed at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla and Scripps Green Hospital.

Community volunteers help garden grow Pick your ideal diet By Wehtahnah Tucker

What started out as a patch of dirt interspersed with weeds has grown into a thriving garden along the south entrance to the community. According to volunteers at the annual Spring Fling event on May 21, their time has been well spent cultivating an appealing space that residents can be proud of. “This is one of the crown jewels of Cardiff,” said Rena Woods, as she tossed wildflower seeds into the garden. “And that’s saying a lot because Cardiff has a lot of gems.” Beautifying the area known as Carpentier Parkway has been a longtime project of the Cardiff Botanical Society, a committee of the Cardiff 101 Mainstreet Association that leases the land from the North County Transit District. Over the past decade, the area has been transformed from a weed-infested, trashladen eyesore into a promenade teeming with wildflowers, native species and drought tolerant plants. Linda Lee, a horticulturist with Quality Plantscapes, said the effort has been transformative but also inconsistent. “It’s always been something that the community has wanted to do but we’ve had our challenges,” she said. Ever the optimist, Lee was enthusiastic about the park’s expansion that includes a promenade.

As part of the community’s centennial celebration, Carpentier Parkway was officially dedicated April 30 with an eclectic ceremony sponsored by the Cardiff Friends of the Library, which included a band, free food and a drawing for Cardiff-by-the-Sea memorabilia. “Towns and cities are just a collection of roads and buildings,” said Councilwoman Teresa Barth during the dedication ceremony. As a Cardiff resident, the councilwoman said she was delighted to be able to enjoy the fruits of the

community’s labor and share it with visitors as well. “Communities are built by the people who live there.” Indeed, Stephanie Stock and her son, Corbin Broski, worked diligently on Saturday morning to plant roses in the parkway. The 6-year-old Broski enthusiastically dug in the dirt and placed each plant in a pattern. “It’s part of his service project for school,” Stock noted. “He chose the roses.” What started with Orville and Jessica Carpentier, who lived across the street from the

railroad tracks, deciding to “tidy up their front yard,” has become a community mission. On any given Saturday a dedicated group of gardeners can be found along the stretch of land between Birmingham and Chesterfield drives beside the railroad tracks. “We want it to be an example for other communities and other businesses that you can have water-wise, chemical-free areas that are still lush,” Lee said. “Not to mention that it is less-expensive to maintain.” Described as “frugal, practical and pretty,” the park has tremendous community support. “We’ve had a dedicated group of volunteers who are cleaning out the massive amounts of trash at either end of the park,” Lee said as she discussed future plans to light the park and create additional gardening opportunities for residents. Friends of the Cardiff-bythe-Sea Library board member Susan Hays was one such participant during the Spring Fling. As with many past Saturdays, Hays donned a cap and sweatshirt with her hands steadily working to move plants, clean and plant donated flowers. Others casually strolled into the parkway to toss seeds handed out by Lee in hopes that they would leave a lasting impression. “It’s nice to know I contributed in some small way,” said Tom Jenkins, a visitor from Minnesota.

Chateau Tanunda leads the Aussie comeback FRANK MANGIO

Taste of Wine The kudos and awards are rolling in for Chateau Tanunda in the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley of Australia. The latest awards earned were the Australian Wine Producer of the year 2010 from the International Wine & Spirits Competition, the Best International Shiraz and the Best Single Vineyard. The worldwide wine giant Banfi Vintners, from Italy, has partnered with Chateau Tanunda to market the brand to greater heights. Banfi has brought in the daughter of Tanunda owner John Geber, to be the worldwide ambassador for the iconic Barossa estate. Michelle Geber presented the family of wines in a recent interview. She told me of her father’s earlier years as a negotiant, a buyer and seller of wines, and how he fell in love with the dormant chateau in 1998. “It was a happy accident to see the 40 acres and the two story chateau, which has been enlarged to 200 acres,” she said. “It had some acreage and still does, that grows authentic German Riesling. Our other varietals, which came later are: Grand Barossa Shiraz, Noble Baron Shiraz, Noble Baron Cabernet and 100-year-old Vine Shiraz.” There was a time not

too long ago that Australia seemed to be catching up with the traditional wine world in production. Their wineries could do no wrong with their animal labels and an ocean of Shiraz. Single vineyard varietals were not in their strategy, as the government allowed vineyards to add grapes from anywhere in the country without transparency. The smart wineries now are mending their ways with a serious swing to quality. Chateau Tanunda never needed to go elsewhere for grapes. Their twin properties in the Barossa and Eden Valleys in Southeastern Australia has been locked in to quality since the beginning. Local growers in the community reserved their best fruit for this elite winery. “Put it down to sentiment, perhaps, but we have access to fruit that other people don’t have,” Geber said. Shifting to the style of wine at Chateau Tanunda, I asked Geber where in the world her wines are styled after. “Our wines have a European sensibility,” she answered. She pointed out that most of the varietals are native to France, either Bordeaux or the Rhone Valley. “We make 200,000 cases that are sold to over 30 countries in the world,” she enthusiastically revealed. “Our pricing is very attractive for our central customer, who is often a ‘Mellenial,’ 21to 35-years-old with high disposable income, is upscale and honest in their thinking.

We are visitor friendly. We host some 100,000 visitors yearly and produce many festivals and events.” Each Chateau Tanunda wine has a personality of its own and it keeps its pricing highly competitive. I would recommend the Grand Barossa Shiraz, 2007. It has a touch of Cabernet and Granache for a medley of European flavor, for the best of old world style and new world terrior ($19). Look further into the Barossa Valley’s oldest and largest winery at chateautanunda.com and banfivintners.com.

Terra, an American farm story

I first met Jeff Rossman in the Hillcrest Uptown District of San Diego, when he opened Terra Restaurant in 1998. I thought it was a name that fit nicely for an American style dining room but didn’t think of the connection to the earth and agriculture. Farm-fresh ingredients weren’t a drawing card for customers at that time. Dining out for health reasons hadn’t come into the picture the way it has in the past few years. TURN TO TASTE OF WINE ON A17

By Consumer Reports

Jenny Craig, the diet program that combines counseling with a portion-controlled regimen of pre-made foods supplemented by home cooked sides, was recently designated a Ratings winner by Consumer Reports Health. With an overall score of 85, Jenny Craig easily surpassed the popular Weight Watchers (57) program by nearly 30 points. The diet Ratings are based on adherence to nutritional guidelines set forth by the 2010 U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and weight loss and drop-out rates, both short-term and long-term, derived from published clinical trials. And that’s where Jenny Craig excelled. In a 332-person, two-year study of the program published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, 92 percent of participants stuck with Jenny Craig for two years, a remarkable level of adherence. As a result, those participants shaved off an average of about 8 percent of their weight. “Jenny Craig is worth considering, but if you don’t like the idea of eating

prepackaged meals, it may not be the best option for you,” said Nancy Metcalf, senior program editor, Consumer Reports Health. “The best diet is the one that you can stay on. Because if you can’t stick with it, then you won’t lose weight, nor will you be able to keep off any weight you do manage to lose.” The report reviews some emerging evidence relative to weight loss and nutrition: • Calories, with an asterisk. As Dean Ornish, M.D., puts it, “The first law of thermodynamics still applies,” meaning that to lose weight you have to burn more calories than you take in.” But new evidence shows that some forms of calories are actually more filling than others. Protein is the most satiating nutrient, followed by high-fiber grains, fruits and vegetables. “The big name diets are putting this principle to work to help dieters shed pounds with the fewest hunger pangs,” said Metcalf. • It’s OK to go low carb. Evidence is accumulating that refined carbohydrates promote weight gain and TURN TO CONSUMER ON A17

Jumpers make showing at Del Mar Horse Park Just a few highlights at the Ranch & Coast Classic include the $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby and Saturday’s $10,000 1.40meter Jumper Classic and $50,000 Grand Prix of California. Competitive until the final horse galloped on course, these three events welcomed well over 100 horses onto the grass field at the Del Mar Horse Park. Qualifying for the Handy round of the $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby required a cumulative first round score of 169 or better. The challenges of the Handy Round included a snake vertical, galloping up a hill, a trot jump and galloping down the hill to an oxer option. Although some illustrated classic hunter style, Yellow Dog Farm’s Crown Affair and John French proved their handy prowess, scoring a solid ten points higher than any other round. The 13-year-old Holsteiner stallion moved up from 10th after the first round for the win. “I wasn’t sure if it was his day after the first round,” explained owner Gail Morey. “But he really perked up for the next round, he just loves to be handy!” Second to Crown Affair was Davlyn Farm’s Come Monday, with Christa Endicott in the irons. Still green at the Derby level, the mare has a fabulous jump and no doubt will be a recognizable name in the hunter ranks. As expected, Venezuelan course designer Leopoldo Palacios challenged riders and horses alike with courses that

demanded a technically accurate ride within a tight time allowed. Of the 38 horses who entered the $10,000 1.40meter Jumper Classic, 11 were clean and the top five spots went to up and coming young riders. Last to go, Karl Cook aboard Lavito (owned by Signe Ostby), took the top prize away from Paris Sellon on her Orlando LA, when he stopped the clock a mere half-a-second faster. Coming in a close third, just a half-a-second slower than Sellon was 14-year-old Kara Chad of Canada on Stone Ridge’s Alberto. College freshman Saer Coulter rounded out the top five on her two mounts Atticus and Alberto. Later that afternoon in the $50,000 Grand Prix of California, nine out of 38 riders managed to navigate the first round without fault, advancing to a true race to the finish jump-off. A number of veteran show jumpers earned a spot in the second round, but none of them were able to beat the blazing double clean trip set by Susan Hutchison aboard the 11year-old stallion, El Dorado 29’s Cantano. Flying to the final jumpoff fence, Hutchison not only managed to be fastest by almost two seconds, she also secured her 15th grand prix win on Cantano. “It never gets old,” Hutchison said. “Cantano has learned it all now which just makes him so much fun to ride.” Third to go in the jumpoff, Hutchison galloped TURN TO JUMPERS ON A17

An occasional problem of restaurants with prime coastal locations is that there is a good chance that people will flock to them simply because of the view,and the food is almost secondary. When I sat down in the dining room at Flavor,overlooking Del Mar, I was thinking that this could easily be the case as it really is a world-class setting. Yes, I can be a bit cynical but alas, I could tell by the prompt service and one glance at the menu that Flavor was about to prove me wrong.What we were about to embark upon was a fabulous dining experience. The kitchen, under Chef Jason Maitland, sent out an amuse bouche of celery and pea tendril puree with crème fraiche and cilantro. It was an absolute delight with our pros-

DAVID BOYLAN Lick the Plate ecco. My eyes lit up when I saw the suckling pig tasting menu,a three course prix fixe for $50, $66 with wine. I opted for the wine pairing as I really enjoy letting the experts do their thing. The pork fest started with a terrine of smoked pig trotter and shoulder with crispy ear,petite mustard green salad and a slow cooked farm egg with Stone IPA mustard. It was paired with a slightly chilled Lambrusco. Wow. The main course was a spring garlic

spiced porchetta, housemade sausage with heirloom carrot mousseline, local sweet peas and grilled torpedo onion. Porchetta originated in Central Italy and is a savory, fatty, moist boneless pork roast. It was spectacular paired with a Rhone style blend from Lioco. I’m going to jump into my dessert because yes, it also contained pork and I need to stay on the theme here. How about a steamed sponge cake with bacon gelato, bacon-pecan praline, salted butterscotch and white chocolate? All this paired with Tokay, a sweet Austrailian dessert wine. Somehow, this all worked. Besides my pork freak out, I made it a point to sample my TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON A17

Local woman finds a reason to run By Lillian Cox

When Ganisha Sethi moved to Encinitas in August 2009, she couldn’t help but notice how friendly fellow runners were along Coast Highway 101. “Everyone said ‘hi,’” she remembers.“You don’t see people enjoying what they are doing like this anywhere else in the world.” Sethi is reaching out to those runners,hoping to recruit them to join her team for the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon on June 5. The team will raise money to benefit the nonprofit Home of Hope,which helps to care for thousands of orphaned children in India — the “poorest of the poor” — by providing shelter, schools and junior and technical colleges. “When I learned of Home of Hope,and how a team of passionate volunteers had touched the lives of over 50,000 children, I wanted to find a way to help them, and (in doing that) I found my best reason for running!” she explained. Sethi reports that Home of Hope has raised $1.8 million to support medical centers, computer labs, mobile libraries and schools where children learn to read and write English. “I was so inspired by this, I will be taking a very short break from work this fall, and will train teachers at one of the Home of Hope locations, the Koshish School in Delhi,” she said. “My goal is to pass along what I learned at Claremont Graduate University about the skills of inspiring children to learn, how to track their progress

and the best ways to inspire them more.” Joining her will be Tanya Shah, a graduate of UC Davis who is currently working on her teaching credential with the goal of studying educational development at a graduate level. “I initially learned about the English Empowerment Program at a presentation Ganisha gave at a Home of Hope meeting two years ago,” she said. “I’ve always admired HOH and have been regularly attending their events for years.” Sethi and Shah will teach as a tag team, with Shah traveling to India in July and Sethi following later. “Rather than taking a one-time trip,we hope to create something that will last and grow,” Shah explained. “Ganisha and I want to keep monitoring the project with the hope that this pilot journey will be the first of many.” Sethi, like Shah, is a second-generation American. She was born and raised in Fresno and began attending UC Riverside at the age of 17, majoring in English and Spanish. After graduation she earned a master’s in education, and a credential in English from Clairemont Graduate University. Sethi began running while teaching in East Los Angeles. “I was depressed about the circumstances that my students came from and the fact that I couldn’t do anything about it,” she said. “I needed an outlet for my feelings and in April 2008

signed up for the San Francisco Half Marathon scheduled in July.” She added, “I didn’t know if I could handle it. I started by running three miles a day, huffing and puffing, and went from there.” The following year, Sethi and her twin brother, and older sister, moved to Encinitas to be closer to their parents who had relocated from Fresno because of concerns about their father’s health. “We settled in Encinitas because my mother

has been a member of the Self-Realization Fellowship for 20 years and it was her dream to live here,” she said. Sethi continues to train, running 20 miles a day, four days a week, at LA Fitness. In addition, she runs between Moonlight Beach (Encinitas) and Del Mar on weekends. “I’m a one-man team,” she said. “I would like to get other runners to sign up so we can start making T-shirts.” To join Sethi’s Home of Hope team, e-mail ganisha.sethi@gmail.com or call (559) 930-0789.

Care A Van serves to transport those in need part she plays in the family’s lives, even serving as a role model to the kids. “Parents are living this 24-hours a day,” she said. “They need a rest. They are secure knowing who is picking up and dropping off their child. I feel like I am doing a service, yet it is rewarding to me.” Richard Dripps founded Care A Van in 1993. He began operations using his own Dodge Caravan and garage. Initially, Dripps provided transportation for Medi-Cal patients and for private rides to doctor and dialysis appointments. “In 2003, the Cardiff School District contacted him and said, ‘we have children with special needs, and would like a bid from you,’” Care A Van Controller Mark Myland said, adding that school districts are mandated to provide transportation for special needs children, even if the school is out of the area. Myland explained that because of the attachments formed between children, parents and drivers, school districts are reluctant to change transportation providers unless there’s a major problem. “School districts never hear from parents,” he said. “If there’s a problem, we’re on top of it.” The company has a staff of 55 drivers that are CPR rated and are required to

By Lillian Cox

As residents bid goodbye to their loved ones in the early morning hours before embarking on their commute to school or work, drivers for Care A Van have already been firing their engines. Care A Van provides van transportation to those needing wheelchair assistance or a ride to dialysis, doctor and non-emergency hospital appointments. They also provide transportation for special needs children in the Encinitas, Cardiff, Solana Beach, Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe, Valley Center and Coronado school districts. Most of the company’s drivers are retirees, like former accountant Ruth Nyboer, who derives a sense of purpose from her work. Nyboer’s passengers are autistic children from Del Mar and Solana Beach. “I feel part of a team and enjoy the camaraderie,” Nyboer explained. “I’ve met a lot of great teachers and aides who come out and pick up the children when they arrive.” Nyboer makes the rides enjoyable by playing the CD “Silly Songs” for the kids. She realizes the important

pass routine drug testing as well as Department of Justice and DMV background checks. The company hosts a fleet of 55 vehicles, including vans, minivans and Ford Focuses. A state-of-the-art GPS system makes it possible to chart the most efficient routes, tracking gasoline usage and maintenance scheduling. Like everyone else, Care A Van has been impacted by skyrocketing gas prices. “We go through 300 gal-

lons a day in gas,” Myland said. “That’s a dollar more than a year ago. Although it’s costing us about $5,000 more a month than a year ago, we’re not like UPS who can add a surcharge.” Myland explained that when possible, Care A Van pairs drivers with children. Drivers are briefed on the child’s condition to make it easier to create a bond with the kids and their parents. “One child has hearing problem,” he said. “One of

our drivers, Anna Naotala, knows sign language. When I substituted for her while she had back surgery, the parents asked ‘where’s Anna?’” Care A Van provides transportation service Monday through Saturday to Medi-Cal recipients and private clients at a cost of $65 per hour to destinations within a 10-mile radius.

studies indicated a threat of failure between Seagrove Park and Torrey Pines State Beach since that area was last stabilized in 2007. The type of soil construction that will be done is also best conducted during the dry season rather than winter, when rain could cause delays and greater impacts to residents. Work is also planned this summer along the Los Angeles to San Diego rail corridor. There will be less disruption to train service if work is coordinated to occur on all those projects at the same time, Wade said. Most construction will be done Sunday through Thursday nights from 10:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. because workers must access the tracks. About 50 trains run along the corridor daily so night work is the only way to ensure worker safety and

avoid service interruption. Late-night Coaster service from Padres games will not be affected, however, passengers on the last southbound Amtrak train will be bused from Solana Beach or possibly Oceanside to downtown. The project will be completed in five sections. Work in the first three areas between Seagrove Park and Sixth Street will have the most impact on residents. Those sections should take about six weeks each to finish. “I know this can be pretty disruptive, so we want to get in and out of areas adjacent to people’s homes as quickly as possible,” Project Manager Ramon Ruelas said. “The equipment isn’t loud,” he explained to one property owner. “It’s the clanging of the steel.” Priscilla Fawcett, a Del TURN TO BLUFF ON A15



and bring the old world together with the new world of food,” she said. She was discovered by a few garden club board members at the Rancho Santa Fe Farmers Market where she was doing a food demonstration. They asked her if she would be interested in doing the same for the club. She was. Now Platis is busy putting together an entire culinary program for them. “My goal is to bring sustainable back to the table,” she said. “I want to teach about cooking with garden vegetables, herbs and teach in the importance of a family garden,” she said. Platis said that it is possible for people to buy as much as possible locally and preserve much of it themselves. Platis said she wants to bring the community together in other ways as well. One of the regular events she is putting together is cookbook author signings. “We have so many wonderful cookbook authors in the area,” she said. “They will come and sign their books and make samples from their cookbooks.” There will also be regular cooking classes at the club. Coming June 9 will be “Using Fresh Garden Herbs to Brighten Up Your Dishes”; “Exploring Local Cheese and Wines,” with Vembra Holnagel June 16; “Simple Changes to Sustainable and Healthy Eating,” with Wendy Woolf June 21; “Let’s Stuff It: Vegetables to Meats,” June 23; “Cooking with Umami: The Fifth Taste,”June 28; and “Sizzling Summer Fruits and Berries,” June 30. July is also filled with interesting events and classes. The cooking classes are Tuesdays at 11 a.m. and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. Platis is already setting up a site for community sustainable agriculture with Suzy’s Farm. Subscribers of the service pay in advance to finance the farm to grow fruits and vegetables. Each week members get a box of freshly picked food that is in season. And she is working on bringing a farmers market to the village. Also on her agenda is working with R. Roger Rowe School where she hopes to set up cooking classes and teach about sustainability and nutrition. Platis began her professional life as a kindergarten and first grade teacher in Encinitas, then as a successful caterer with her Greek Gourmet and as a blogger with her website, californiagreekgirl.com. To learn more about the program or cooking classes, contact Platis at (760) 942-9592 or e-mail her at maryplatis@gmail.com. All classes are held at at 17025 Avenida de Acacias.

Manion said he met Aloysius as a young man when he was introduced to him by his father Jack Manion, who was well known in Rancho Santa Fe.

Others have felt the same during a blessing from him. “I have seen people visibly changed,” he said. Manion described Aloysius as “spiritually blessed,” someone who enjoyed the presence of God within himself and encouraged others to embrace that presence within themselves.


I’m for it. Anything to quiet it down. It’s just way too intrusive.

“He was especially supportive of young seminarians during their formative years,” he said. He was a gifted soul director and could read a person better than they could read themselves, especially when he had never seen them before. Aloysius was born in Spain and entered the Claretian Missionaries and was ordained at the age of 24. Shortly afterwards, he was sent to America, where he was a professor of Greek and Latin and helped in the spiritual formation of seminary students. A 30th annual Memorial Mass for Aloysius was held at this grave site at the mission on April 9. His life and healing ministry was remember by friends, family and Claretian Missionaries. The homily was delivered by Manion. In recent days the Claretin Provential has assigned a part time person to take witness testimonies from missionaries

a thousand times and never noticed it.” Slater said the owners of the property are staunch conservationalists and would probably be willing to deal. “This is the ideal time to acquire such a large piece of land for a low cost,” he said. The property has already been subdivided into four parcels including 24.47 acres already dedicated as open space by the county of San Diego. Slater said a $450,000 endowment was established for the care and maintenance who would have been his students in the 1940s and 1950s in the Los Angeles area.“This is a good thing,” Manion said.

Work will involve installing steel reinforcement beams into 36-inch diameter holes, which will then be backfilled with concrete. Tie backs will also be installed at some locations.

Ramon also said he was pleased with attendance at the open house. “I’m glad to see community interest in what we’re doing,” he said. Once complete, the stabilization is designed to provide support for about 20 years.

Trefethen said their primary focus is providing a nutritious menu with nourishing alternatives. “We are trying to make everything we serve even on our existing menu healthier by lowering sodium, offering whole grain substitutes, and adding a whole launch of salads which are healthy,” he said, adding how their flat bread piz-

zas will provide another wholesome choice. Trefethen said Slater will make a positive impact in the company’s brand redevelopment mission of healthy living. “A lot of people respect what Kelly has to say in this area given what he has accomplished at his age,” Trefethen said. “He’s still winning championships.”

of that property as a biological preserve. “It just needs to remain open space,” Slater said. Association Director Anne Feighner said the acquisition of the land is significant.“I think it is well worth pursuing,” she said. Director Jack Queen said he is certain 50 years from now the members will thank this forward thinking board for taking action to save this property.

the way it has in the past few years. Rossman realized he wanted to take his restaurant in a different direction when he started working with kids about six years ago in the San Diego Unified School District, and a garden project one of the schools had inherited. He saw the look on their eyes when they were able to taste what they had grown. As the same time, he was teaching cooking classes and saving the most exciting recipes that were gardenbased, local, sustainable and organic. The inspiration and passion of his book “From Terra’s Table” gets to the heart of the farm to table movement. The new location at 70th and El Cajon Boulevard displays a tractor at the front entrance. Inside, all eyes turn to the 10-person Chef’s Farm Table where Chef Jeff hosts monthly wine/beer paired farm-fresh dinners with appearances by local growers. My choice of wine for my organic salad, smoked salmon and sea bass was the Cinnabar 2008 Mercury Rising Cabernet/Merlot from Paso Robles. It showed up as one of my favored wines to date this year. Terra American Bistro also does catering with its local,organic menu,and has a bar featuring seasonal fruit and herb-infused vodkas and an array of beer and wine choices. See more at terrasd.com.

Stopping the clock at 36.56, Hutchison was able to do just that. Also ending the day double clear, Helen McNaught and Hap Hansen battled it out for second and third place honors. Navigating the shortened track second to last, Hansen masterfully piloted Archie Bunker (owned by Linda Smith) to stop the clock in 39.20 seconds. He seemingly had second place secured until last to go McNaught and her own Caballo shaved one more second off his time with a 38.12 finish, bumping Hansen to



type 2 diabetes through their effects on blood sugar and insulin. Restricting carbs can bring blood insulin levels down, helping a dieter burn body fat, which in turn helps you eat fewer calories. On the topic of fat consumption, some surprising conclusions: The report notes that several epidemiology studies have found that saturated fat doesn’t seem to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease or stroke. Other studies suggest that a dieter might be better off replacing saturated fat with unsaturated fat instead of with certain carbs, the ones that turn to blood sugar quickly, such as white bread and potatoes.

Mayor Dan Dalager while knowing Dalager failed to follow the process and disclose a $100,000 loan. Dalager later pled guilty to the DA. In Encinitas there is one process for Stocks and the City Council and another process for the rest of us. Stocks said “the art is doing exactly what the artists intended for it to do.” Some

could choose to see the art as a negative with bad intent because it fits a personal view. I can only speculate what the artist wanted. I choose to see the positive. If the Surfing Madonna was intended to bring residents together in joyous smiles, to help our local business merchants increase sales and tax rev-

enues, and to promote our city in a favorable light, then I say job well done. Others might debate that the art was intended to show the public the growing disconnect between voters and a City Council that only has political will when it benefits special interests. Another perspective might be that the art was intended to point out to

the public the hypocrisy of Deputy Mayor Stocks and a City Council that demand residents follow processes and codes when they themselves will go around processes and break codes as they alone see fit. Art is in the eye of the beholder. What do you choose to see?

and carrot chips. This dish was perfect. As I check my notes here, I noticed we ordered two entrees, on top of the pig fest and starters. What were we thinking? We were thinking we could not decide between the grilled day boat scallops or local halibut en sous vide with rock shrimp Meyerlemon risotto, pancetta, shaved fennel salad and saffron hollandaise. I’ve had beef cooked sous-vide but never fish and I was not disappointed. Halibut is a moist

fish to begin with and cooking it that way just made it even more so. The rock shrimp lemon risotto has entered my top five risotto list and made for a perfect bed under the halibut. We left the wine pairings up to our very talented and accommodating server who did it right. We were told by our server that Jose the pastry chef had a special chocolate bar dessert with hazelnut sable, caramel, espresso ice cream and chocolate cream. So yes, along with our

bacon sponge cake delight we had to accept her suggestion. It was well worth it paired with a Tre Serre Brachetto D’Acqui, a sweet Italian dessert wine and it just about took us over the top into one of the most delightful food comas I’ve ever had. This was one of the more indulgent dinner experiences in recent memory but it was one that was well worth it. Flavor is not an inexpensive place to eat, but I did not see an entrée over $34 and

most were around $30. Given the location, quality of ingredients, and creativity coming from the kitchen, I’d say it’s a great value. I will also stress again that the staff at Flavor are on top of everything and made it a very enjoyable experience. Check Flavor out and make a reservation at flavordelmar.com.

Fastest of the four faulters, Canadian Chris Pratt and Cruise sailed around the shortened track in a time of 36.80, just brushing a rail mid-way through for the four fault penalty and sixth place.

You can call me a ‘country’ girl, but just don’t tell anyone Well, call me “country” if you want to because I am. Call me old fashion or just plain simple. I’m one of those rare women living in Southern California that can make homemade sausage gravy biscuits for breakfast. Up until a few years ago, I only drove a pick-up truck and would never miss a George Strait concert. I even attended the ACM awards like a star-crazed fan in Las Vegas. So, I guess as an “American Idol” newbie, it should be no surprise to myself that I was downright thrilled that 17-year-old Scotty McCreery took home the title on May 25. I held my breath, and then cheered in delight to watch this solid young man take home the title. Yes, I must confess, I felt like a teenager staying up into the wee hours of the night voting for two PIANO MAN !"#$%& '(#)*+& ,#$-)& .**/0*+& /*(*1+#2*-& 34& )*#+5& #2& 6"((*& 7(*8+5& "$& 20* hours on the “American Idol” hot9%$20&%:&6#);&<*&"5&:*#28+*-&0*+*&="20&9)&5"52*+>&?+#/)&<%=#+-; Courtesy photo line like a ‘tween.’ Maybe Dolly Parton is on to something — she’s in her mid-60s and acts like she’s still in her 30s. I watched her recently on Biography saying,“Who cares about age when I feel like young?” Right on,Dolly.I take great pride in admitting to the Ranch residents that I shamelessly voted for hours for the new “American Idol.” It looks like I am indeed, just a country girl after all. But don’t tell anyone.

Around Town

On May 14, Ranch resident Violet MacDonald celebrated her birthday with her loved ones. If you happen to knowViolet,then you also know she is one of the loveliest ladies in town. Kind and always gracious, I have known Violet for almost 10 years now. She is active in the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club and has had her own beautiful garden FAMILY CELEBRATION ,#$/0 +*5"-*$2& O"%(*2& 6#/D%$#(-& >& /*$2*+>& /*(*1+#2*5& 0*+& featured several times in the “San 1"+20-#)&="20&0*+&(%P*-&%$*5&%$&6#)&3Q;&Courtesy photo Diego Home and Garden Magazine.”I hope you had a wonderful birthday,Violet. Later that day, Krista Lafferty and Sandy Temple celebrated their birthdays by toasting champagne with good friends at Mille Fleurs. Both lovely ladies were born on May 15. Sandy, featured with her sister Barb Temple, and Krista looks thrilled to be seated with friend, Deana Carter. Deana and Krista both had just worked the rummage sale for the Rancho Santa Fe Rotary earlier that morning, and look at how splendid they looked for that special occasion only a few hours later! Happy birthday to two beautiful women.

MACHEL PENN SHULL Machel’s Ranch On May 21, many celebrities were in town for the Drew Brees Celebrity Championship at Morgan Run. This is always one of the biggest events of the year. Gorgeous Ranch resident Priscilla Wood is really becoming quite the socialite in the Ranch. Besides working with Mike Taylor in real estate, she can be seen at various events lending her time to charity or supporting this community. I look forward to seeing her soon one of these days when our busy schedules will allow time for some “girltime.” Priscilla is featured here with Del Mar resident Laura Stansberry and celebrity host, Chris Harrison, who is well-known for hosting ABC’s “The Bachelor.” On May 22, the worst tornado ever recorded (since they have been monitoring tornadoes) struck Joplin, Missouri. I grew up only one hour from Joplin, so this news is just absolutely devastating to me. My cousin lost his home that day, but made it out alive, which is a mere miracle if you have been watching the news. I hope this story resonates and you can find it in your hearts to donate to the link that I am listing here. Until you have lived through tornadoes, it’s hard to imagine how scary they can be—if your lucky enough to live through them. One story that really just broke my heart was about Will Norton, who had just graduated from high school that day. He was heading home with his father when the tornado struck. He was ripped out of his seatbelt and sucked out by the tornado funnel and is still missing. There are many tragic stories like this.If you can help out,here is a link that would contribute to the aid for Joplin: uwheartmo.org/. At least remember to keep them in your prayers. On May 23, I received word from one of my other favorite socialites in town, Ms. Karian Forsyth, that her mother Jennifer Hein was in town visiting her. Many of you know about Karian in my column about those amazing spa parties she is always hosting in The Crosby. However, I just had to add what I love about Karian is her style

and vivacious spirit; from making life fun for others and being a dependable friend, I am lucky to be included in her “rock star circle of friends.” I have included a stunning photo of them here in my column from one of their outings in the Ranch. On May 25, on-lookers from Cielo or Del Dios Highway might have witnessed a noticeable change at Lemon Twist — the awning was finally added. After almost four years of rebuilding after the fires, permits and a long time coming, this business is finally back up and run-

ning for all of the local residents to enjoy. From organic citrus, fresh vegetables, unique gifts and floral arrangements,you can find a variety of goodies for your home. Did you know chocolate covered strawberries were just listed as one of the healthiest desserts to eat? Well, you can just imagine me sneaking a few when I am down there helping the costumers — because I am after finding out that wonderful news. For more information on Lemon Twist and their products, check out lemontwistfruitstand.com. At the end of May, musician Randy Beecher celebrated 18 years of playing at Mille Fleurs piano bar in Rancho Santa Fe. Randy has brought many smiles, warmed spirits and added local residents a chance to enjoy fun music all year long without having to drive out of the comfort zone. I have featured a photo of Randy with my sister, Tracy Howard. She is one of Randy’s biggest fans. Thanks Randy, you really do add soul to this community.

Signs of the Times

“Dog Stylist” Dara Foster (“I show people how to live together with their dogs in a stylish way”) told a TV audience recently that some dog owners are dressing their pooches in “‘80sinspired punk,” “giving way to a grunge movement in dog fashion — I swear to God.” The ubiquitous TV guest and apparel designer estimates that since Americans already spend $47 billion a year on pets, they need more than ever to know what’s hot — fluorescent styling gel, for example, and precooked meals for dogs, and owners getting matching tattoos with their dogs, and a recently spotted synthetic mullet wig for dogs.

Celebrities tee it up for good cause at Morgan Run

She’s here! She’s here! These past few weeks happily held one of my favorite miracles. My lovely friend and The Coast News Group’s former editor, Laurie Sutton, had her baby girl May 16 — Joey Raye, 7 pounds, 5 ounces. She is gorgeous, fuzzy, pink and perfect, and I can exhale again. I’ve been cheering for her the entire way. Finally, choosing zazz over diva drama, she decided to make her entrance fashionably early. I offer sincere apologies to her mom who had rather hoped for some time to finish up errands and put her feet up after leaving work just the Friday before. Clearly already a woman who knows what she wants, Joey had other plans. The spooky thing was I absolutely knew the night before that it was going to happen. I was working on my computer when the fully formed thought entered my head. “I think Laurie’s going to have her baby tonight.” I sent her a message on Facebook telling her of my premonition. At 2:50 a.m., she went into labor and delivered that next evening. I really didn’t mean to start anything. Pity I can’t do as well with my lottery tickets or racetrack bets. It would seem that Joey Raye and I share a special channel on life’s airwaves. Now that I think about it, she used to do barrel rolls shortly after her mom arrived at the office in the morning. I’m thinking now this kid knew exactly who her BFFs (formerly known as Fairy Godmothers) are. I even won the office baby pool. I swear on my mother’s needlepoint, I did not slip Pitocin into Laurie’s going-away-party punch. Joey Raye had been such a tap-dancing octopus in utero, it seemed very possible that she was determined to get out where she could stretch her legs at the earliest possible moment. Once I knew Laurie was at the hospital, the day got rather long. By dint of age and time, I know too much. I was in blissful denial while pregnant with my own, but I know now that the birth of a perfect, healthy baby is the luckiest, most amazing gift life can bestow, I also know the entirely-too-long list of things that can go heartbreakingly awry. Being a woman of the new century, Mom Laurie graciously texted me her initial progress and I mentally paced the floor all day.To my delight, the whole delivery went by the book, from her wake-up call to being handed TURN TO SMALL TALK ON B11

Quiet horns receive OK if funding works out

SARA NOEL Frugal Living

Blood stains can be a stubborn foe

By Bianca Kaplanek

SDCWA deactivated its Water Shortage and Drought Response Plan and discontinued water supply allocations to its member agencies as of April 29. The Level 2 Condition included mandatory water use restrictions, and

After about five years of researching options and 20 months of planning, $378,317 is all that stands between trains and an automated system to reduce the noise made by their horns while passing through Del Mar. At the May 23 meeting, council members authorized construction of a wayside horn system, but only after a committee of residents privately raises all necessary funds. North County Transit District (NCTD) will install stationary horns permanently mounted at the city’s only train crossing on Coast Boulevard. Quiet zone indicators — poles with red X’s that let engineers know the wayside horn system is in place and working — will be installed west of Seagrove Park, west of the railroad tracks and at the crossing. The horns, which will mimic the sound of horns when a train approaches, must sound when a train is 1,300 feet from the crossing. They will sound at 92 decibels 100 feet from the centerline. Engineers will still have the discretion to use their horns, especially if pedestrians are in the crossing. The system is expected to reduce the amount of noise, its level and how far and long it resonates, especially at night. “Once we silence the train horn it will be great for my family,” said Casey Sullivan, a committee member who lives close to the tracks on Grand Avenue. “It’s a very annoying inconvenience.” The not-to-exceed amount includes $363,317 for construction, $10,000 for two years of maintenance, $5,000 for city attorney fees and a 7 percent contingency. NCTD indicated the estimate is conservative and could be reduced during contracting for construction. Led by resident Hershell Price, the committee preciously raised $17,548 that was used to fund the design phase. “We got the community behind us,” Price said. “Now here we are today and, of course, this is the hard part, the $378,000 that has to be raised.” Committee member Larry Richards commended Price for his efforts. “He has just done a tireless job of just keeping the ball moving and networking with everybody that needed to be networked to have this be where it is today,” Richards said. “Things do happen in Del Mar. “The fact that we are



Dear Sara: I read your article on cornstarch and have a question. Will this work on blood that has been washed (but not washed out) and then run through the clothes dryer? If not do you have another suggestion? Thanks for your help. — Earl A., email Dear Earl: No, this won’t work on an older stain. For an older stain, soak the garment in a solution of 1 quart water, 2 teaspoons dishwashing or liquid laundry detergent and 1 tablespoon ammonia. Rinse and then soak in water and color-safe bleach. Then launder as usual. If the stain is persistent, you can try spraying Windex or Saline on it and running it through the wash again, or wet the stain with hydrogen peroxide and then sprinkle baking soda on it.You can apply the hydrogen peroxide and baking soda a few times until the stain lifts. Another option is to rub Fels-Naptha on the stain. Dear Sara: Our neighborhood has a lot of outdoor cats. They aren’t all feral. I don’t even know who the owners of them all are, but some have collars (no tags) and don’t seem wild, so I know some are pets. They are always in my yard, on my porch, patio furniture and my car, and I’ve even seen them outside on my window ledges peeking in! Not only that, but they scare all the birds away from my feeders and they fight at night! Any frugal advice on something to plant to deter them? I don’t know why they hang around my house. They’re here so often that I worry the neighbors might think these are my cats. I don’t want cats doing their business in my gardens anymore and creeping me out in my windows! I own a dog, and he doesn’t keep these cats away. If all of this wasn’t bad enough, these cats have even left dead critters (birds, mice, etc.) on my doorstep. I don’t want to be known as the cat lady! — Lilly, Illinois Dear Lilly: They’re all hanging out at your house TURN TO FRUGAL ON B11

Seniors put lessons into action By Bianca Kaplanek

The 87 seniors at Santa Fe Christian spent their last week of high school putting their classroom lessons into action during senior business week, a broad-based curriculum exercise that doubles as the economics final. Groups must partner with local vendors, create business and marketing plans, conduct presentations, advertise and sell their products before school and during breaks and lunch for a week. Sales for the outdoor event got off to a slow start because of rain and wind, but all the teams expected to recoup their start-up costs and begin seeing a profit by the end of day three. Money raised is used to offset costs for retreats, the senior trip and grad night expenses and to purchase the senior class gift to the school. This year students chose to purchase a scrolling marquis for announcements in the upper school quad and a memorial for William Wardrip that will be placed on the 32yard line of the football field. They are also contributing 10 percent to the William Wardrip Foundation, which provides scholarships for future Santa Fe Christian students. William, who would have graduated this spring, was killed in an October 2009 car accident. He was a member of the SFC football team and

Santa Fe Irrigation District lifts drought bans RANCHO SANTA FE — Thanks to customers’ conservation for nearly two years and significant improvement in statewide water supply conditions in 2011, the Santa Fe Irrigation District Board of Directors voted unanimously to discontinue its Drought Response 2 Condition and lift mandato-

ry water use restrictions. The change became effective May 19. The Drought Response Level 2 Condition had been in effect since July 1, 2009. Mandatory water use restrictions, including limiting outside irrigation to three days per week, were initiated to ensure water demands were

reduced in response to the allocation of water by Southern California’s wholesale water suppliers, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and the San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA). Based on the current outlook of water supply, demand, and storage conditions, the

Local authors gather for garden party By Promise Yee

Tea sandwiches, scones and pots of English tea were set out on china for guests at the Authors Garden Party fundraiser in Henie Hills hosted by The North County African American Women’s Association (NCAAWA) on May 21. “It’s a special event for ladies,” Raye Clendening, president of the NCAAWA, said. “It’s quite wonderful.” Eight California authors shared their experiences and read passages from their books. Following the talk there was a book fair and a chance for guests to speak one-onone with the authors. The event also celebrated this year’s NCAAWA scholarship recipients. Ten women received scholarships of $500 to $1,000. The NCAAWA grants annual scholarships to women who are working to improve their lives.

Islands Restaurants gives back to community BARN OWL

By Christina Macone-Greene

While Islands Restaurants gears up for National Hamburger Day, they’re also giving back to the community in a big way. In May, Islands debuted its Miracle Menu, with 10 percent of the proceeds raised being donated back to the national nonprofit organization, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego is part of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. And with nine Islands Restaurants to choose from in the county, there’s much hope Rady’s will benefit tremendously. The Miracle Menu will be available until June 12 with the goal of raising $100,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Islands Restaurants has 53 locations taking part in this philanthropic pursuit, and 45 of these restaurants are located in Southern California. “The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a national charity but any money raised in a community goes to that children’s hospital,” said Cheryl Polk, corporate development officer at Rady Children’s Hospital. Polk pointed out that $100,000 is not going directly to Rady Children’s Hospital. The

funds will be split between the children’s hospitals located within the vicinities of the Islands Restaurants. These locales will include Orange County, Los Angeles and beyond. So the more San Diegans eat at an Islands Restaurant, the more money will go to Rady Children’s Hospital. “Islands is such a great partner,” Polk said. “They realize how important it is to give to the community and this really has been their doing.” The Miracle Menu will have Islands’ three most popular items: spinach and artichoke dip, big wave hamburger with cheese and the Kona pie. If the $100,000 goal is reached before June 12, the

Day of golf offers support for football RANCHO SANTA FE — The 16th annual Torrey Pines High School Golf Classic benefiting the school’s football program will be held June 20 at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, 15150 San Dieguito Road.This year, the event will be capped with Emmy-awardwinning sportscaster Paul Rudy as the Master of Ceremonies. Rudy is well known for his TV show, “Prep Pigskin Report” on KUSI. The tradition of a day of golf to fund Falcon football’s proud and honored history will kick-off with a noon shotgun start. At 4:30 p.m. golfers and friends are invited to a wine-tasting and “Football

101” with Torrey Pines Head Football Coach, Scott Ashby. A silent auction begins at 5 p.m. with many exciting trips and packages, followed by a dinner and awards. Registration for the day of golf, which includes box lunch and dinner, is $250 per person. Dinner, auction and wine-tasting is $75. Dinner and auction is $65. TPHS Alumnis Jeff and Bernadette Fargo are chairing this year’s event, assisted by a group of parent volunteers. Contact the Torrey Pines Foundation office at (858) 793-3551 or golftournament@tphsfootball.com for information.

Miracle Menu will go on hiatus. Islands Restaurants opened its doors 29 years ago and its corporate headquarters are based in Carlsbad. Although it already supported its local communities, about a year ago, it researched how it could align itself with a larger charitable organization “That’s when the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals came onto our radar,” said Michael Smith, president of Islands Restaurants. “When you walk through these hospitals and see the love and care that all the workers, nurses, doctors give it’s amazing — it just touches your heart and that’s why we decided to do it.” Smith is looking forward to the Miracle Menu launch and hopes to have a long-term relationship with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Polk said they are thankful for the ongoing community support and this includes the upcoming Islands Restaurant Miracle Menu effort. Last year, Rady Children’s Hospital treated 147,000 kids. And these numbers surge higher when adding on outpatient services. “We treat so many kids,” Polk said. “About 50 percent of the kids we treat have little or no medical insurance and Rady

Children’s Hospital will never turn a child away due to their lack of ability to pay.” Fundraising and philanthropy is important for the hospital so it can continue to provide the best medical care for San Diego kids. “Please come out to Islands and support Rady Children’s Hospital and give back to a great organization,” Smith said.

sense of adventure with comfort and safety. Older travelers stay in hostels because they offer prime city and resort locations at a fraction of hotel prices.” While 18- to 30-yearolds will always account for the vast majority of those who book through

Hostelworld.com, White added that the number of older users have grown steadily since 2000. The 30-plus group accounts for about 20 percent of the bookings, and the 40-plus group accounts for 7 percent. “This renaissance in hostelling has been driven in

part by the economy and those seeking more affordable accommodation choices,” White said.“But it is also attributable to the improved standards of hostels, their fantastic locations and the realization that hostels aren’t what they used to be. The spirit of adventure, the desire of travelers to have more immersive experiences and the maturing of the industry are equally drivers of this movement.” Here’s what else White had to say about hostels in an email interview (some answers have been edited): How are hostels different today than they were years ago? Hostels have come a long way from the sparsely furnished dormitories of yester year.They’ve gone from bleak

Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month ended May 31, but the need to maintain awareness does not. Dr. Melanie D. Palm of Surfside Dermatology performed free cancer screenings throughout the month of May at local businesses including Lululemon in the Carlsbad Forum, Cardiffit Gym in Cardiff Towne Center and Frog’s Fitness Center in Solana Beach. “What has been surprising by these screenings is the lack of sun protection,” Palm said. “We saw 20- and 30-yearolds with what would be considered 50-year-old skin in the Midwest.” Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States with about one million new cases diagnosed each year. The most serious type of skin cancer — malignant melanoma — will kill nearly 8,000 people this year. That means one person dies of melanoma every hour. While sun exposure is the leading cause of skin cancer, Dr. Palm explained that tanning booths have been linked to an increased risk of melanoma. “Personal history of

melanoma is the strongest risk factor, particularly first-degree relatives (parents, siblings, children),” she said. DR. MELANIE T h e D. PALM first line of defense is early detection. “I stress to patients the importance of a thorough, annual full skin examination by a board-certified dermatologist,” she said. “This should include an examination of the scalp, mucous membranes, eyes, and all body folds.” Patients also play a crucial role in skin cancer detection. “Monthly self exams allow patients to identify new or evolving lesions, allowing earlier detection of skin cancers such as melanoma, which can be life saving,” she said. While those of Hispanic and Mediterranean descent have pigment that adds more protection than Caucasians, Dr. Palm says it’s surprising how many people of color are TURN TO SKIN ON B11

County. — No new confirmed cases. “As the dates for our June Jamboree and summer shows approach, we will continue to closely monitor the situation,” a release from Blenheim said. “Due to its research and outreach to veterinarians, we do not believe horses are at risk at either the Del Mar Horse Park or Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park show facilities.” Blenheim EquiSports

Show Management will incorporate the following temporary measures by recommendation of the California Department of Food & Agriculture: — Upon arrival to the show grounds, participants will have to sign a form confirming that their horses have had no contact with the horses from the NCHA Championships in Ogden, Utah or the Kern County Cutting Event in Bakersfield, Calif., or have not been on the same premises with horses returning from these events.

— All horses must have their temperature taken twice daily and results must be posted on the front of the stall. Any horse with a temperature above 102 F will be removed from the premises immediately. — All horses will be subject to random temperature check by the show veterinarian.

to chic…and exist in unusual locations such as jumbo jets, tree houses, prisons and castles. They also offer private rooms, en suite bathrooms, swimming pools, saunas, Jacuzzis, bars and restaurants. Many hostels offer …meals, bicycle use, tours and free WiFi. Why the change? How are today’s travelers different? Hostels have come of age to adapt to the modern day traveler. They realize that many travelers now come equipped with their own laptop, along with iPhones, mobile phones, digital cameras and MP3 players. As a result, their standards have



JUNE 3, 2011 improved significantly. Can you give a range of prices that one might find? The price of staying in a hostel varies significantly across the world. For example the Agora Hostel featured in the list of “History Hostels” offers rates starting at $7.27 per person per night. For hostels in the U.S., private rooms can cost anywhere from $30 per person per night, whereas dorm rooms can cost from $15 per night. In general, how far ahead should you book? This depends on the season. Always book ahead as far in advance as possible, especially during high season (e.g. summer in Europe or Oktoberfest in Munich).

Is there a time limit to hostel stays? Each hostel has guidelines, but often there is no time limit and some hostels even welcome long-term stays. I see that Hostelworld.com also features hotels. Why? Hostelworld.com offers hotels (nothing over three stars), guesthouses and apartments due to customer demand for other types of budget accommodations and the fact that there are a limited number of hostels. What are the most popular hostels? Every year Hostelworld.com recognizes the best in the hostel industry with the annual Hoscar

awards ceremony. Winners are chosen from the 25,000 properties by customers who booked online. They rate hostels on character, security, location, staff, fun and cleanliness. The top 10 winners for 2010 were: Travellers House, Rossio Hostel, Lisbon Lounge Hostel and Goodnight Backpackers Hostel, all in Lisbon, Portugal; The Riverhouse Backpackers in Cardiff, Wales; Greg&Tom Hostel and Flamingo Hostel, both in Krakow; Sitting on the City Walls Courtyard House in Beijing; Academy Hostel in Florence; and Mambo Tango Backpackers in Barcelona.

Joey’s safe arrival was topped only by watching her parents fall completely in love with her. There is no other feeling on earth like it. Any time and every time I witness it, it just knocks me to my knees. Extra thanks, too, for an excuse to wander the aisles of the baby section to my heart’s content. I adore buying little clothes and great goofy toys and the baby showers. That’s good fun. I am so looking forward to meeting Miss Joey in person, but that will have to wait until her antibodies kick in. Meanwhile, Facebook rocks.

especially susceptible to a form of melanoma called “acral” which is found on the palms and the soles of feet. Dr. Palm said she examined between 45 to 60 people during the screenings in May. She found one patient with a large basal carcinoma and another with a lesion that looked to be an evolving melanoma. “The prognosis is directly related to thickness,” she said. “Chances of survival decreases with an increase in thickness.” The Skin Cancer Foundation use the “ABCDs” in identifying melanoma: A: Asymmetry. If you draw a line through this mole, the two halves will not match. B: Border. The borders of an early melanoma tend to be uneven, scalloped or notched. C: Color. A variety of colors in a single mole is another warning signal. D: D i a m e t e r . Melanomas usually are larger in diameter than a pencil eraser (1/4 inch or 6 mm), but they may sometimes be smaller when first detected. “They added ‘E’ for ‘evolving,’” Dr. Palm added. “This would be something that is new or changing.” Dr. Palm moved to Encinitas about six months ago from Chicago. “I did my cosmetic fellowship in La Jolla and

returned to Chicago to practice,” she said. “My fiancé brought me out here. I love the weather, the lifestyle and the people and am excited to be back.” Dr. Palm adds that even though she enjoys hiking and beach volleyball, she tries not to play during hours when the sun peaks, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “I apply sunscreen 30 minutes before I go out and reapply it every hour and a half or so,” she said. “I wear a broad-brimmed hat, long sleeves and pants for additional protection.” Dr. Palm recommends a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or better, preferably with a physical blocking agent such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Sarah Anne Dordel, director of marketing and patient services for Surfside Dermatology, said that it was Dr. Palm’s idea to offer the free screenings. “She suggested we do it offsite because it’s so much easier to get people to get screened than it is coming in the office,” she said. “What was impressive was that people would come up afterwards and say, ‘Thank you for doing this — I have had a relative with skin cancer’ or ‘I have had it myself.’” For information about a free cancer screening, contact the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery at asds.net, and click, “What Do You Want to Do?

because many of them are probably not spayed or neutered. Normally I would suggest talking to the neighbors, but you aren’t sure who owns all these cats.

commercial customers to cut back water use by 6 percent. Those restrictions included following an outdoor watering schedule, limiting landscape irrigation to three days per week and 10 minutes per sprinkler station. Those restrictions are no longer in place following the board action. Rescinding the Level 2 Condition does not mean that future water challenges are over, but rather that SFID’s anticipated supplies for the next year are adequate to meet demands. That situation could change if the region’s

Then they are placed at the humane society. The burden is then placed on the owner to possibly pay a fine or prove the cat is theirs. Sadly, many cat owners think cats are outdoor pets. As far as planting goes, cats don’t like the smell of citrus. So you can put citrus peels in your garden. According to Allycats.org, coffee grounds, pipe tobacco, or oil of lavender, lemon grass, citronella and eucalyptus also deter cats. Can you put some sprinklers on a timer or a motion sensor or have a motion-sensor scarecrow? Keep reading

in the upcoming weeks. I am sure I will receive a lot of feedback on this, and I’ll be sure to share some of the nonviolent ideas. But to protect yourself, don’t take any type of aggressive action, and do find out more about your local laws.

water supply outlook worsens or if SFID customers stop conserving the way they have been. Since the Level 2 mandatory water use restrictions were put in place, SFID customers met and exceeded the district’s call for a 6 percent reduction in water usage. Water use has been down over 20 percent since SFID called for cutbacks in water usage. “Wise and efficient use of water is our civic responsibility,” SFID General Manager Michael Bardin said. “Our customers have done an outstanding job of conserving water over the past two years, and we encourage them to continue

to conserve.” Bardin added, “The response of the community to the call for conservation was impressive. I want to thank all of our residents and businesses for their efforts when water supplies became constrained.” Although mandatory use restrictions are no longer in effect, the district encourages its customers to continue to use water wisely and practice common sense, everyday things to eliminate water waste such as fixing leaking or broken sprinkler pipes and heads. For information on water conservation and ways you can ensure your water use is efficient, visit sfidwater.org.

JUNE 3, 2011 you have the courage of your convictions, but if you allow self-doubts to plague you, you won't be able to see beyond the impediments. Get back in character. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Don't put yourself in a position where the only way you'll be able to complete what you're doing is to ask for help. People can't always stop what they're doing in order to comply. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Avoid teaming up with someone whose goals and objectives are totally different from yours.All you're apt to accomplish is the loss of your temper and a good ally with it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you think you can breeze through an assignment unscathed where others have tried and failed, give it a go, but don't be unduly disappointed if it proves to be too much for you as well. PISCES (Feb.20-March 20) -- It is good to think in positive tones, but resist a temptation to take on a troublesome assignment unless you have a totally new way of approaching it. Even then, tread lightly. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Bend a bit, if it will appease someone who is important in your life, as long as you're not violating your conscience. Hopefully, this person will do the same for you when you are in need. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Even though a co-worker might tax your patience and good temperament, try to be tolerant and understanding of his or her behavior, especially if it's unusual for this person.

Friday, June 3, 2011 More than one opportunity may present itself to you of which you'll want to take advantage in coming months. However, approach each one individually; that's the only way you can make you way through them all. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- No one knows better than you how vital it is to keep your financial affairs in good order. If you let your expenditures exceed your earnings, you'll only have yourself to blame. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Guard against inclinations to ignore a scheduled routine. If you decide to run your life in a helter-skelter manner, it isn't likely you'll accomplish a thing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Avoid injecting additional negative factors into something that may already be going badly. Getting angry and losing your temper won't help, but it will pour more fuel on the fire. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Ignoring the request for a favor from someone who has helped you out many times in the past will reflect badly on you. Suggest another time if it is impossible for you to help out right now. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don't fret over the work at hand.Begin from where you are and see where it takes you. To do nothing at all will leave you in a worse state of affairs. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Usually

Custom made gift baskets or stop by and talk to Barbara and she could custom make you a gift basket for your special dad. OBAN SINGLE MALT SCOTCH

A compromise between the power of Islay malts and the elegance of Speyside, with dryness and smokiness along with flowery, herbal tastes



LACAVULIN 16 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT Delightful with a fine Roquefort cheese and biscuits. Complex, dry and smoky with a big body.




This exquisite spirit is handcrafted from rare whiskies produced only in distilleries that operated during the reign of King George V, including several which no longer exist. The blend also features prized Islay malts from the Port Ellen distillery, founded in the 1820s, the stills of which are no longer operational.



2005 CARDINALE CABERNET It exhibits a deeper ruby/purple color, plenty of body, excellent richness and spicy new oak. It will drink well for 1517 years.




the wine has a nice dark ruby red color. The complex aromas show the influence from both the moderate and the warm periods of this long vintage. The wine has very pronounced ripe jammy fruit aromas of plum and black currant that display the warmth of the vintage
