Polo players make way for cowboys By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — For any passerby who took a gander at the San Diego Polo Club field last weekend may have thought a Western movie was being filmed. The Wild West action taking place was actually the Cowboy Mounted Shooting demonstration between the first and second polo matches. The event was co-hosted by The Silver Dollar Ranch and The Roy Rog-

er Rangers Mounted Shooting Club. The polo crowd had a magnificent time. Leann Lawson, business manager at The Silver Dollar Ranch, said the Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association has more than 3,000 active members both nationally and internationally. “The Roy Roger Rangers is the premier Southern California Mounted Shooting Club that hosts practices

and competitions on a monthly basis,” she said. “Mounted Shooting is a timed and accuracy competition.” Lawson went on to say that competitors use a total of two .45 caliber single action handguns loaded with black powder blanks. There are more than 65 courses and must shoot at the 10 balloons per course. If a competitor misses a balloon, TURN TO COWBOYS ON 18

ENCINITAS — The San Dieguito Union High School District recently adopted an $86.7 million operating budget that boost the district’s reserves by nearly $6 million. The board voted 4-1 to approve the budget, with trustee Maureen Muir casting the lone dissenting vote. Muir said the budget falls short of adding counselors and reducing class sizes, two items that she campaigned on in 2014 and has advocated for during her half year on the board. The $86.7 million budget calls for the district to

increase spending by about $3 million from the previous school year, including increasing certificated salaries by about $1.3 million and classified salaries by about $861,000. The increases are offset by a $10 million anticipated increase in revenue during the upcoming school year, including a projected $6 million increase in property tax revenues and $6.5 million in other state income, which offsets a loss of $2 million decrease in federal and local income. The resulting surplus will be added to the $15 million reserves, boosting the total to $21 million.

RANCHO SANTA FE — Summertime has officially begun and the RSF Fire Protection District wants its community to remain water safe and vigilant since many families will be enjoying pool time and outdoor parties. Implementing various water safety steps and adding onto those already implemented in previous years will help safeguard summertime activities even more. Julie Taber, public dducation coordinator for the Fire Protection District wants residents hosting a pool party to designate at least one adult to be a “Water Watcher” to monitor swimmers at all times.

RANCHO SANTA FE — The recent Rancho Santa Fe Association Board meeting was held at the RSF Golf Club. Following member input, Board President Ann Boon provided a robust list of happenings in the Village. On the roster was the topic of broadband. Boon wanted everyone to know that she, board treasurer, Kim Eggleston, and Association manager, Bill Overton recently attended the Fiber to the Home Council annual convention in Anaheim. “We heard the latest news in fiber technology,” she said.

According to Boon, before the end of July, the Technology Infrastructure Committee will be meeting with its own consultant to further discuss business models for its RSF project and told members to “stay tuned” for more. With water conservation responsibilities weighing heavily on RSF residents, Boon told members that meetings and brain storming sessions are taking place nearly every day between the County and Santa Fe Irrigation District (SFID).

Vaccination bill becomes law, sets up potential legal battle By Aaron Burgin

REGION — California is now home to one of the strictest vaccination laws in the country, one that is likely to set up a legal battle between the state and opponents of vaccinations. Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed Senate Bill 277, which bars religious and personal-belief vaccination exemptions for school children. Students who attend home school or independent studies courses are exempt from the bill’s provisions. The bill took effect July 1, 2016. Personal belief and religious exemptions had proliferated across the state in recent years, especially in Encinitas, where the Encinitas Union School District had the county’s highest non-medical exemption rate, according to state public health department statistics. Nearly 12 percent of EUSD students claimed exemptions from vaccinations, compared to 2.5 percent statewide. “The science is clear that vaccines dramatically protect children against a number of infectious and dangerous diseases,” Brown said in a news statement. “While it’s true that

no medical intervention is without risk, the evidence shows that immunization powerfully benefits and protects the community.” Proponents of the measure believe personal and religious exemptions have weakened public health defenses and were partly the cause of a measles outbreak in 2014 that started at Disneyland and spread across the state. Most health organizations have come out in favor of the law, arguing that the exemptions were not in the community’s best interest. “We are fortunate in that we have little to worry about with polio or small pox today — mainly because the parents of our pediatric patients enabled the immunization of their children to protect them. This law is a way for a modern society to assure that the next generation will be healthy enough to achieve its fullest potential in life. This is a benefit that far outweighs the risk,” said Dr. Patrick Tellez, chief medical officer, North County Health Services. “Our collective experience in public health in this nation, and the world, has taught us

that there is a tipping point of community immunization rates; once it drops below that point we can lose the gains we have made over the last 50 years,” said Irma Cota, president and CEO of North County Health Services.

This is why a lot of parents believe that the Governor of California has just legalized discrimination.” Rebecca Estepp California Coalition for Health Choice

Still, a contingent of lawmakers, celebrities and anti-vaccination activists have railed against the law, which they said is an attack on both personal freedom and the state Constitution, which guarantees a public education without discrimination. They believe the case is destined for the courts, and potentially to the nation’s high court depending on the outcome at lower levels. “There are so many issues with this poorly written law, first and foremost that it flies in

criminated against by not having access to a normal classroom education.” Newly enrolled who do not have immunizations after July 1, 2016 would not be allowed to be promoted to the kindergarten or seventh grade, respectively. Students who have written exemptions on file before Jan. 1, 2016 would have until they enroll in the next grade span in order to get immunized. Students enrolled past seventh grade with an exemption on file would remain exempt. “This is why a lot of parents

believe that the Governor of California has just legalized discrimination,” said Estepp, who said the government has essentially forced people to choose between their beliefs and their child’s education. “We are at the point where we have to weigh possible permanent medical damage for a normal classroom education, and that is just coercive,” said Estepp, who said it was ironic that Brown’s law strikes down the religious exemption that his father, former Gov. Pat Brown, signed into law more than 50 years ago. Brown supported the exemptions as recently as three years ago, before signaling his support when the bill reached his desk. Local Assemblyman Rocky Chavez (R-Oceanside), echoed Estepp’s concerns in his statement explaining his opposition to the law. “The state should not get in between parents and their children when it comes to health and access to education,” Chavez said. “Children in California have a right to an education, and denying them that right is going to have major ramifications in California.”

RSF Association prepares Castro provides golf club water saving updates community-wide survey By Christina Macone-Greene

By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — At a recent board meeting, the RSF Association unanimously agreed to send out a community-wide survey to all property owners. Fred Wasserman, the Association’s new director, offered up the resolution. On the heels of this resolution was a petition signed by a few hundred residents asking the Association to reconsider its

decision of choosing traffic signals over roundabouts along the Paseo Delicias/ Del Dios Highway. The potential locations are at the intersections of El Camino del Norte, La Valle Plateada/El Montevideo and Via de la Valle. Before spelling out the details of the resolution, president of the RSF Association Ann Boon, said the county and Association began studying roundabouts in an effort to improve traffic flow safety along the Paseo Delicias/Del Dios Highway corridor about 12 years ago. Following some chronological history, Boon

then handed the microphone over to Wasserman. He wanted to put a resolution on the board table which underscored that a survey be sent to property owners in the Covenant who pay assessments to the Association. The survey would ask individuals whether they want traffic signals or roundabouts. Enclosed in the survey, Wasserman suggested, there would be summaries available in the survey for both traffic signals and roundabouts. “Staff would prepare the summaries to accompany the survey form so that there would be consistency in terms of presentation,” he said. Additionally, links to the Association’s website was also recommended for further descriptions. Wasserman clearly explained that this survey was not a vote for Association members. The reason it was not a vote for Association members, he said, is because there are about 300 people who live in the Covenant who pay assessments to the Association who are not registered to vote. “But they are property owners, and they’re entitled to participate in the survey,” Wasserman said. “The survey is being requested by the county of San Diego to assist them in finalizing the decision on which alternative to choose. So that’s the resolution.” More than 15 members requested to take part in the public comment section. Association Manager Bill Overton directed memTURN TO SURVEY ON 18

RANCHO SANTA FE — In an effort to stay on track with the water cutbacks, general manager of the RSF Golf Club Al Castro offered updates to the Association’s board of directors. What has helped substantially was the club’s turf removal project, which took place the latter months of 2014. The club removed 18.6 acres of turf and replaced it with water-wise native plants among other strategic landscaping measures. “As of today, our water savings because of that re-

moval is about 15 percent,” he said, referring to gallons used. Castro said that their May and June numbers for water usage were decreased approximately 35 percent, which also included the 15 percent turf water savings residuals. As of July 1, the club was required to start reducing its water usage numbers to 45 percent per Santa Fe Irrigation District’s instructions. Castro said they are close to fulfilling the remaining 10 percent gap. As for the golf course at the club, Castro said they anticipate addition-

al brown grass during the warmer months of July, August and September but not substantially more. Castro shared with the directors and members that print media reported how MWD has resumed implementing its turf rebate project. However, this time around, it is capped at $25,000 per commercial installation. “I’m happy to report that the club, being the first to take advantage of the MWD rebate, was able to capitalize on that to the tune of 1.6 million dollars,” Castro said. The board praised Cas-

tro on a job well done. Castro, however, was quick to point out how he commended the efforts of their committees and golf course superintendent for pursuing the turf rebate program so swiftly. During another phase of Castro’s presentation, the board of directors unanimously approved the allocation of $30,000 to be filtered toward a water study. The club requested affirmation and they received it. The monies used would come directly from the Covenant Enhancement Fund.

What’s the point of Dog Beach? By Eric Ransavage

On June 23, I took my 3-year-old daughter and my dog to “Dog Beach” in Del Mar. I’m used to the beach being pretty full of dogs and dog owners. I was surprised to see only a few dogs when we got there at 10 a.m. Then I saw the sign requiring dogs to be on a leash. This is the new “Summer Law” at “Dog Beach.” Ahh, I thought. That’s why there are no dogs. What’s the point of “Dog Beach” if the dog can’t play in the waves, swim, or run around with other dogs? I noted however that the few other dogs on the beach were not leashed at 10 a.m. So I went with the flow and left my dog off of his leash. I had a great 45 minutes of fun swimming with my 3-year-old and with our dog running along with us on the beach (he doesn’t swim). Around 11 a.m. the lifeguard came on duty and told everyone that the dogs needed to be leashed. I put the leash on our dog and quickly realized I wasn’t going to be able to corral my 3-year-old in the waves while I held a leashed in dog my other hand.

So we left. Similarly, all the other dog owners put their dogs on their leashes — and left. Like me, I think everyone realizes that having your dog on a leash at “Dog Beach” is pointless. If the dog needs to be on a leash, like everywhere else in public, then why would I get in my car and drive him to “Dog Beach”?

I think everyone realizes that having your dog on a leash at “Dog Beach” is pointless. It’s easier to just put his leash on at home and walk him through the neighborhood or to a nearby park. It’s sad to think that this stretch of beach, which used to have dozens of dogs and dog owners typically enjoying the day, is now empty. Like so much in our society done in the name

of “safety,” I suppose some people were nervous about a large number of unleashed dogs and wanted this rule. This is despite the fact that there are 20 other miles of beach and parks in North County where dogs are not allowed at all and those nervous folks could simply go there. In reality, I suspect the rule might have been made for the benefit of some rich whiny millionaire homeowners whose beach front properties are seemingly devalued when their ocean view is mucked up by a bunch of barking dogs. The bottom line is that if safety was the issue, the rule has succeeded. Not because the dogs on “Dog Beach” are now on a leash and under control, but because there are no dogs anymore at “Dog Beach.” Something that was unique and cool about North County has been lost, and we have another stretch of sanitized beach that’s just like every other stretch of beach in the United States. Welcome to our cookie-cutter society. Eric Ransavage is a Leucadia resident.

Chavez denounces Trump’s comments By Rocky Chavez

It saddens me that the narrative being set for Republicans at a national level can be initiated by someone who has never been elected. My Republican colleagues in the California Legislature have a proven track record of supporting legislation that encourages comprehensive immigration reform. Earlier this year, I co-authored Senate Joint Resolution 2 (SJR 2) by Senator Vidak (R-Hanford), which earned a majority vote from the Assem-

bly Republican Caucus. SJR 2 urged Congress and the President to work together to create a comprehensive and workable approach to reform the broken immigration system in our nation. Immigrants come to the United States from all over the world to both benefit from and contribute to our society; we owe it to our nation to welcome immigrants with open arms and to reform our current broken immigration system. We must not forget that the United States of Ameri-

ca is a nation of immigrants and our society has always grown stronger as we form a more diverse society. Immigration was a catalyst of the American dream in the past and will be the key to the future. Rocky J. Chávez is a retired Marine Corps Colonel, former City Councilman and former Acting Secretary of the California Department of Veterans Affairs. He represents California’s 76th Assembly District, which includes Camp Pendleton, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Oceanside and Vista.

On behalf of more people than you likely realize, thank you each for officially, and in unison, standing up to the Building Association Industry (BIA) that is attempting to sue the city of Encinitas over city council’s conservative interpretation of the poorly-written State of California “Density Bonus Law.” It is right. And courageous. Thank you for endeavoring to hold at bay the numerous carpetbagger developers from further blighting our Encinitas neighborhoods with many crammed developments of $1 million-plus homes — typically adding a token lower-market rental as an appeasement to this law. What a ruse. By invoking the Density Bonus Law, these developers are often given a green light to zoning changes, have the numbers of houses they want rounded up (not down) in order to fit more homes, and accorded other various waivers and concession loopholes by obsequious planning commissions. The building industry is gaming the system, and everyone — starting with them — knows it. Access to transportation hubs is often overlooked, as is parking availability. The spirit of this law is

absolutely being violated throughout the state by development companies, who are often the “storefront” for investment groups. They acquire the land, invoke Density Bonus with a municipality, overbuild, bear their profit and get out of town. The losers are not the buyers, not the builders, but the people of that neighborhood. It is plain wrong for

apparent that the building industry had everything to do with foisting this law upon our elected officials in Sacramento, starting with the pro-Density Bonus Law Patron Saint, Assemblyman Ed Chau. It is embarrassingly transparent. As someone recently wrote about this, having the building industry dictate the terms of our growth is disturbingly Kafka-esque. This law can-

The losers are not the buyers, not the builders, but the people of that neighborhood the state to not allow the individual municipalities more say in the application of these often specious Bonus Density invokings by the building industry, who are lining their pockets whenever they can get away with it. On the face of it this law seems well intentioned. But it needs retuning and more latitude granted to individual cities. As it stands, this law is generating ill will in neighborhoods and city governments throughout the state — it is being wildly over-invoked. It is all too

not stand as is. Though I’ve had my various differences of opinion with Encinitas City Council decisions at times, I tip my hat to you on this for having the backbone to stand up to the Building Industry Association, the bullyboy on our city block. Thank you, on behalf of us, your constituents and neighbors. This letter from Encinitas City Council to Assembly Ed Chau in Sacramento makes me proud to be an Encinitan.

Tennis is much more than just a game Voices from the Village By Dave Van Den Berg


ennis is more than a sport to me it is a way of life and a lifeline. It has taught me not only how to compete but how to socialize and engage others. It has created enduring friendships and experiences to remember for a lifetime. It has also given me the opportunity to see other tennis players who chase that fuzzy yellow ball in a much brighter light. Many years ago I was fortunate to make friends with a Wimbledon Champion. He was an honest man with a humble background who grew to be one of our country’s best-known champions while playing for the United States Davis Cup Team. Like many of those in the early years, he played for the love of the game, not for fortune or fame. And he, much like many of our older professionals, could no longer afford many of the simple pleasures of life. It was then I decided to do something for those who played for our country and could use a helping hand. Having had the unique experience of running a tennis club in retirement I decided to put on a professional tennis event to raise money for those who could no longer support themselves, pay their rent or medical expenses and thus formed The USA Tennis Classic, a 501c3 nonprofit foundation. That experience taught me another important life lesson. It taught me how the same tennis players who fought over who would pay for the $2.99 can of balls could also be the most generous kind hearted people I had ever met. It is a lesson, which continues today. The generosity shown by tennis players for those not as fortunate no longer surprises me, it is the norm. After moving to Rancho Santa Fe and enrolling my son in the Middle School here I was amazed at the lack of a junior tennis program available to the students. With the help of the Superintendent of Schools, and the Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club and the magnanimity of tennis players and parents in the area that program has grown to 65 students many of whom will now have the benefits of this sport and life experiences it provides to share forever. These past few months have once again proven to me the kindness and charitableness of tennis fans. Mr. Skeets Dunn had run a Pro Am Invitational event for 28 years in San Diego. Skeets is another of those tennis people we

meet in our lives who gives of himself for many worthy causes. After meeting with Skeets we decided that the 29th year of the event would be held at Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club and the proceeds would benefit the RSF Junior Tennis Program. That event, just completed, was another example of the unselfishness of tennis fans raising over $100,000 with the proceeds awarded for junior programs and its participants with a history of community service, academic excellence, and financial need. Next year, we will again ask our tennis fans to participate in the 30th Skeets Dunn Pro Am Invitational. We will expand the benefits next year to include many more junior players, far outside the Rancho Santa Fe area in financial need, by partnering with other foundations serving those in need. Once again, tennis will prove itself a lifestyle and a lifeline to those less fortunate. Dave Van Den Berg is president of the Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club.

Del Mar local helps Indian schools Stormtrooper walks to San Diego in memory of late wife By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — When Kyle Joyner decided it was time to gain some cross cultural experience — he had never really been outside Southern California — he sought a summer internship in India. To do so the 20-year-old Del Mar native had to fulfill two requirements: fill out an application and convince his parents he would be safe. Having successfully completed both Joyner, who will enter his senior year at the University of California Berkeley this fall, is about halfway through the program, in which he is helping to conduct a feasibility study on incorporating renewable energy into rural schools. “The goal is to find

schools that are underserved when it comes to having electricity,” Joyner said, adding that while most do have power, it is often turned off during work hours. “So the children basically have no lights, no fans, no sort of extra media,” he said. “They’re learning with a chalkboard, the teacher talking to them and using textbooks. They don’t have any other resources. “The idea behind this program is to see if something like a solar panel or a water-powered plant or a wind turbine could potentially provide them with their own source of electricity,” he added. “It’s also sort of a learning laboratory for the students as well because the can learn about the environment and ener-

Del Mar Thoroughbred Club talks old Hollywood By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — At a recent “Get Smart” series at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, those in attendance had the opportunity to hear Joe Harper, CEO of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, speak about the upcoming racing season. He also spoke about the Hollywood-era of the Del Mar Racetrack. And Harper knows a thing or two about old Hollywood. Legendary American filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille was his grandfather and his uncle was actor, writer and painter Anthony Quinn. “Del Mar got its start in Hollywood,” Harper said. “It has an interesting history.” The history began with Bing Crosby who had an estate in Rancho Santa Fe. An avid golfer, he also had horses and raised them. According to Harper,

Crosby along with some big Hollywood producers and actors all got on board to create the construction of the Del Mar Racetrack. While Crosby was a pretty good singer, Harper said, he was also a great marketing person.

Back in those Crosby days, the only opportunity people had to see celebrities was on the silver screen. “There was no place where people could go to see the stars,” he said. “So to actually see one, you came to Del Mar.” Common faces were Cary Grant, Randolph Scott, Jimmy Durante, and Bob Hope. And the powerhouse who made that happen was Crosby. Harper went on to say that Crosby was an influential man in Hollywood. “He was one of the few guys in Hollywood that managed to get out from under the studio’s control. Most of the stars in that time were under the contract of the studios,” he said. “Bing had some power.” And when Crosby wanted his Hollywood friends at

the track on a certain day, they were there. They never disappointed. Harper then shared another yesteryear story. There were very few restaurants in Del Mar at the time and there was a particular patio area where everyone congregated. Hope was down in Del Mar for the day and joined in. With music playing in the background, Hope and Crosby started telling jokes and had everyone laughing. “They really had the crowd going,” he said. The men looked at each other, Harper said, and the idea spurred to do some road pictures. A handful of films were made including Road to Bali, Road to Rio, Road to Morocco, and more. “The Hollywood thing and Del Mar made sense because of the people who came here,” Harper said.

CARLSBAD — He can still hear the inflection of his late wife’s voice when she would say to him, “You’re such a dork.” When Kevin Doyle hears that now it brings a smile to him. But not long after his wife Eileen passed away from pancreatic cancer in November of 2012, it would bring tears. “Eileen has passed, but her memory does not,” Doyle said, all the while dressed in full Stormtrooper armor. On Monday, Doyle was walking along a stretch of Coast Highway 101, part of a roughly 645 mile trek that he began back in Petaluma — all in honor of Eileen. “Doing the walk down the West Coast in armor was really the only choice I had,” said Doyle. They were both “Star Wars” fans, he explained. She was a self-proclaimed geek and he was dork and they were OK with that. He left the Rancho Obi-Wan, a “Star Wars” museum on June 6 and anticipates arriving in downtown San Diego just in time for Comic-Con July 9. Since he started his walk Doyle has been greeted by joggers, other walkers, bicyclists and motorists all stopping at the sight of this Stormtrooper walking his way down the state. Apart from honoring his wife, Doyle is also raising awareness and fundraising for the charity he created called Eileen’s Little Angels, donating blankets, bandanas, coloring books and plush toys featuring his wife’s artwork to children battling cancer.

Friends from the local 501st Legion, an all-volunteer organization for costume enthusiasts, offered him a place to stay. He’s kept up a pace of about 20 miles a day, though at times he would end up doing as much as 45 miles a day. And walking in the full armor was comfortable, he said, adding that he’s been fortunate with his feet and no pinching from the costume. He pushes along a dog-jogger with him filled with gear: A cot, a chair, a tarp (sometimes what he’s been sleeping under), extra clothes and some other provisions. Now, that he’s made it to the North County, he can “coast it” a little bit some 25 miles away from downtown. He said he can spend some quality time with the people he meets along the way.

Popularity of summer programs rise

By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Summer camps at the RSF Community Center kicked off a couple weeks ago and are still growing strong up until its final day Aug. 21. The variety of opportunities for children are best described as providing a unique environment for summer campers. This nonprofit has been championing after-school programs and youth camps since 1971. “We have a long record and a long history,” said Linda Durket, executive director. She went on to say that the feelings most parents and children convey is that they are part of a family during the summer camp months. “That is always great to hear,” she said, adding how her staff members, known as recreation leaders, have an interest in childhood development and enjoy what they do. The summer camp is split into two different categories: Camp Rancho and Enrichment Classes. The camps are geared toward children between the school ages of kindergarten through fifth grade. Camp Rancho consists of day trips and tries to em-

brace what summer is all about. They can accommodate 22 children and there are 4 recreation leaders on hand. According to Durket, this involves going to destinations, which incorporate water play and also attractions, which help educate children about San Diego. For example, field trips include touring the USS Midway, behind-thescenes tour at PETCO Park, Aerospace Museum, Birch Aquarium, hiking at Torrey Pines and more. On the flipside, Enrichment Classes are held during the day where a child learns something new. “These are weeklong camps because they’re really focused on learning a specific skill,” Durket said. Examples of this include game design, animation, cooking, sewing, surfing, Legomation and more. The goal for both summer camps is to offer flexibility, development, adventures and friendships. “It’s that feeling of being part of a very supportive and nurturing group,”

she said. Durket said that her team has a special way of making all children feel comfortable. In some rare instances, they may have a reluctant child that arrives. Within minutes, she said, Durket is amazed to see how her staff has the welcoming tools to make a child feel at ease. “Kids never come here feeling they have to come here,” she said. “They want to, and that’s a great feeling.” To learn more about upcoming Camp Rancho getaways and Camp Enrichment courses visit RSFCC. org or call (858) 756-2461.

ey. It’s summer. Get the heck out of the kitchen. You’re making me look bad. I maintain that this is the time for fast food with a clear conscience. I like to rationalize it this way: I could be on an expensive vacation somewhere, spending oodles of money. But since I am still home, dealing with all the cares of home, then I will take my own sort of mini-vacation – from the kitchen. Well, you could argue that I have more time to cook, but I counter that I have less inclination, if that is possible. Besides, I am out and about, at the beach, on the road. It’s time to live on big burgers, Mexican food and lemonade at least three times a week. In my further defense, I will say that during the school year, when life is regimented, I am the vitamin-pill drill sergeant and the green-vegetable queen. I never had any compunctions about browbeating

my children and denying them anything palatable unless they choke down some zucchini or broccoli first. Because I can sleep in, breakfast is always on the menu, from cold pizza to cold cereal. It is based on the well-known dietary laws of whatever is closest when you open the refrigerator. I try to stock fresh fruit and reasonably healthy choice but if I run across that funky hot dog hut with the killer chili dogs, it’s on. Occasionally, at some point in the summer hiatus, I am stricken with a wave of nostalgia and I will actually peel, boil, mix and bake the picnic fare that made my childhood summer’s memorable. For me, it was homemade potato salad, burgers (now turkey) with everything and chocolate cake with fudge icing. It will never taste as good as when Mom made it, since I am a food coward. I think they key to her flavorful potato salad was that it was just this side of bursting out in salmonella. The hamburger meat sat out by the grill for longer than we would ever permit in these days of E. coli awareness. But if our generation has learned TURN TO SMALL TALK ON 18

The Never Summer Mountains provide a spectacular backdrop to Grand Lake, Colorado’s largest and deepest (265 feet) natural lake, fed by streams flowing from Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake flows into Shadow Mountain Lake (headwaters of the Colorado River), which flows into Granby Lake. The latter two are manmade. Photos by E’Louise Ondash

t’s 8 a.m. on a June morning, the temperature is 40-something and we have Grand Lake to ourselves. The water is almost glassy and the snow-laden peaks of the Never Summer Mountains in the distance are living up to their name. We paddle our kayaks toward the small canal that connects Grand Lake with larger Shadow Mountain Lake, the headwaters of the Colorado River. It’s been raining a lot so the water is high and we slide quickly through the narrow passage with no effort. Well, that was fun … except that in a little while we’ll have to run the water the other way. This turns out to be a challenge. I paddle and paddle and get nowhere fast. I consider blowing the “help whistle” on my life vest, then decide to give it one last try. I finally clear the passage enough that I don’t have to fear the current carrying me backward. I’m soaked, the air is still cold and so am I, but I’m still having fun. Back on shore, we return the kayaks to Mountain Paddlers and head for breakfast just a couple of blocks away. Nothing is very far from anything here in the town of Grand Lake, Colorado, which sits on the shore of the lake of the same name. The year-round population is less than 500, but summer brings many visitors who want to enjoy all the lake has to offer and to visit Rocky Mountain National Park. The entrance is just a few blocks away. Earlier in the week, we took a boat cruise with Kyle Simpson at the helm. Having grown up and worked in the Grand Lake area most of his life, there’s little he doesn’t know about the lake’s history, legends and lore — or the geology. Two huge glaciers traveling down the nearby valley scooped out the very deep hole (286 feet) that is now Grand Lake. Simpson also entertains us with tales of the rich-and-famous who inhabit the estate-size homes that front the lake, but only

By the early 1900s, residents and visitors had returned, drawn by the extraordinary beauty of the area. Rocky Mountain National Park was established in 1915.

The town of Grand Lake, a two-and-a-half hour drive northeast from Denver, sits at 8,369 feet. It takes a day or two to get acclimated, and the air is dry, dry, dry, so staying hydrated and close to town for the first couple of days is a good idea. This is not a problem. There is plenty to see and do in Grand Lake, and you can park the car and leave it. The town is pedestrian friendly and everything is close. Until the mid-1800s, the area was inhabited by

the Arapaho, Sioux, Cheyenne and Ute Indians. The discovery of gold in 1859 brought people to Colorado and the Grand Lake area. In 1875, according to the town’s website, silver, lead, copper, and gold ore were discovered in the Never Summer Range, less than 20 miles from the lake. The town began to serve the miners with shops, hotels and saloons. On July 4, 1883, Grand Lake’s version of a Tombstone shootout took place, with the death toll at six. History records the reason as “political differences” (and you thought current day factions didn’t get along). This incident discouraged investors and the

Rusanne “Roxie” Ortiz May 14, 2015

Rusanne “Roxie” Ortiz from Oceanside, California was born on 10/31/1952, and sadly passed away peacefully in her sleep on May 14, 2015. She was well-known, respected and loved by many in both her professional and personal life. Her professional career spanned over 40 years both as an advertising executive and sales manager in San Diego and Los Angeles Counties working for The Blade Tribune, San Diego Magazine, Sun Newspapers, The Coast News and was very active in several of the local Chambers of Commerce. Originally from Wisconsin she adored her football team the Packers and proudly wore that bright green jersey. Rusanne knew many people

from all walks of life enjoying both the outdoors and the nightlife dancing and listening to her favorite local bands. Her favorite activity was the intense love affair of our beautiful seashore. It was common to see her riding her bike or walking her dog along the Oceanside beach and pier. Her collection of sea glass and shells were a tribute to her love of the sea and these treasures went to her friends and family who will miss her dearly. But they know she is home with her spirit joining the loved ones she lost way too early. Her beloved first daughter Shelbie passed away in 1994 in a tragic automobile accident and then her husband Randy followed not long after a battle with illness. A seaside memorial was held with only close friends and family several weeks ago and her ashes returned home with her family. She is survived by 2 sisters, and her brother, as well as her grown youngest daughter, and the many friends she met along her journey. We will all miss her easy laughter, keen perception and thoughtful heart. We can only hope she is running along some beach in Heaven, laughing and finding better treasures there.

A funeral serves a wide range of purposes, with religious, psychological and physical significances. There are many aspects and details to a meaningful service - a celebration of the life of a loved one - that are arranged with the assistance and guidance of a caring and professional funeral director or arrangement counselor. Many times, these services are provided at the time of need. However, many people prefer to arrange everything prior to need because this allows decisions to be thought out and made without the stress of a recent death. We are happy to provide information, without any obligation, on pre-arrangements and/or pre-payment options . Please feel welcome to contact us at your convenience to schedule an appointment.

Tequila tasting Twenty/20 style taste of wine frank mangio


t’s a desert plant, really not much to look at, and if you get too close, it can pinch with its needle-like points. It’s called the Agave plant. The best of breed, and the ones that are used for the Tequila beverage, is found in the city of Tequila, northwest of Guadalajara and in the highlands of the state of Jalisco. There is much to know about this drink, certainly more than the fact it’s the basic ingredient in the ever-popular Margarita. Twenty/20, in the Sheraton Hotel in Carlsbad produced a Tequila and Tapas event, a coordinated tasting with Milagro Tequila and Twenty/20’s Executive Chef Julian Quinones and Sous Chef Gil Manipon. Steve George, the Twenty/20 beverage manager, described and offered four separate and distinct styles of Tequila, paired with such delicacies as grilled octopus, corn flan, pepper relleno, hamachi, chicken lollipop, stuffed zucchini and grilled tri-tip. Quinones is bringing a new zest to the menu. He’s just on board from the Del Coronado resort, a great catch for Twenty/20. When choosing your favorite Tequila, ask for Aneyo, aged 3 years in French oak barrels. It has a rich golden look to it and you can add that to its taste also. All Milagro Tequila is “tripled distilled” for more sweetness. Twenty/20 has

The Jewish Collaborative of San Diego (JCo) makes Jewish dreams come true! You’re thinking, “How can one community fit everyone’s needs or make my ‘Jewish Dreams’ come true?” Easy! JCo helps families customize their paths. At JCo, we know one size doesn’t fit all passions; we aim to personalize our programs while creating a sense of community. “How?” In a traditional synagogue, educational curriculums separate into Hebrew and Judaica. JCo turns traditional models upside-down. Different aspects of Judaism are important to every family so we offer arrays of options like the following: Introducing JCo Kids Club. (Grades K-5th) Run by the families for the families! Each month families propose two events, including bowling, scavenger hunts, holiday parties, etc. Kids get directly involved

with planning so they’re engaged with their Jewish community. Announcing JCO Hebrew Lab. (as early as Kindergarten or whenever you feel appropriate) Focuses on learning to read Hebrew and as they progress, kids choose prayer Hebrew, modern Hebrew, or both. Hebrew lab is offered several times a week so families come when convenient. We recommend an hour but welcome lab use as often as desired. Presenting Junior Chai. (Grades 6th – 8th) At JCo, we know not everyone is focused on the traditional Bar and Bat Mitzvah process, so we offer choices. Our Bar and Bat Mitzvah program is individualized for each family. Want to have the ceremony on the beach? At the park? At your house? At JCo? No problem! Your child wants to sing their way through the service?

Lead a drum circle? Facilitate guests in social action projects in the middle of the service? Anything’s possible at JCo. Meaningful experiences for everyone. Isn’t that the whole point? Featuring BBYO. (Grades 6th-12h) An opportunity to be part of a youth group led by the students for the students. Do they want a trip to Disney? Visit a local shelter to feed the homeless? Under the guidance of our youth organizer, the sky’s the limit. But that’s not all! A variety of classes on Jewish topics are offered throughout the year including Jewish art, music, history, and much more. At JCo, families are encouraged to be involved in all aspects of the community -- from Shabbat to holidays to social action. Kids learn first hand (outside of the classroom) what it means to be part of a Jewish community. The Jewish Collaborative of San Diego takes our children’s education and Jewish involvement very seriously. It’s important for families to have kids happily engaged in Jewish life. And there are no “extra charges!” All of our education offerings are included as part of membership. Join us today. For more information, go to

Sports O’side shaper crafts surfboard from agave By Ellen Wright

OCEANSIDE — Surfboard shaper Gary Linden is inspired by agave. He’s been working with the desert plant for decades after he was introduced to the concept by a friend’s dad who received an agave and redwood surfboard as payment for medical attention. Linden said shapers have been using locally sourced agave for ages. “Apparently, the story goes, all the boats came into LA so the surfers and shapers up in LA got the balsawood first,” said Linden. “By the time it got to San Diego, there wasn’t much left. They noticed all the agave down in Point Loma and the similarity to (balsa wood) and started using that for some of their boards.” Linden has made surfboards out of agave before, but just finished his first 100 percent agave board. “What I was really try-

ing to do was replicate the modern surfboard process taking all the materials from one plant in a celebration of the versatility and abundance of resource that the agave plant provided,” Linden said. Everything from the resin to the fiberglass alternative was pure agave. He used agave pulp to form a mesh cloth and treated it with resin he made out of agave juice.

Jose Cuervo tapped Linden for the project to celebrate the launch of their 100 percent pure agave tequila, Tradicional. The board is a work of art but Linden isn’t done yet. When he took the board surfing in Oceanside, he realized it wasn’t watertight and the resin coating came off. “I just have to figure out how to replicate how the plant applies the materials

that it has to make it more waterproof. I’ve got a little more (research and development) to do,” Linden said. He brought it back to shore and now wants to spend more time coming up with an agave resin that will be watertight. “We just need to figure out the resin and we’ll be home free,” Linden said. He sources the agave locally in Oceanside and Clairemont and has shaped boards in Ensenada from agave he finds there. Once the agave plant sprouts, a stock shoots up 30 feet in the air. After eight months, the stock dies and the seed is disseminated through the wind. Linden waits until the stock is completely dry to harvest it, which can take a year or two. The agave surfboard has been a dream of his for a while. He admits that it’s not likely to see lots of agave surfboards out at the beaches due in large part of the amount of labor it takes to make one board and because riding them too often damages the board. The majority of agave boards he shapes are meant for art appreciation. He wanted to inspire creativity with the project and open people’s eyes to the possibilities. “I’m not trying to save the world but I want to have people take a look at what’s possible,” Linden said. While he was down in Tequila, Mexico working on the 100 percent agave surfboard, he saw people making cloth, paper, shot glasses and soap out of agave. What’s up next for the agave guru? “I’m making an agave guitar,” Linden said.

Perfect Game gives players perfect opportunity

sports talk jay paris It goes by the Perfect Game but Perfect Perspective might be a better fit. “When you’re a baseball player, it’s all about getting to the next level,’’ the Padres’ closer Craig Kimbrel said. “It’s what can I do for myself.’’ And next month’s Perfect Game will do just that, showcasing the nation’s top senior players at Petco Park. That includes La Costa Canyon center fielder Mickey Moniak. But the game is more than a game and this is where we circle back. A bunch of kids over at Rady Children’s Hospital will all be the better for it. The 13th annual game serves as a fundraiser for children battling cancer and its participants are a key part of it. Before the contest, each player mounts an online drive to get dough for those tough youngsters. Then during game week they visit the hospital, meeting kids that life has thrown a curve. Although the patients are often grinning like they just crushed a fastball. Those smiles and their determination trump any Perfect Game accomplishment. “That is very important,’’ Kimbrel said of that impact on the play-

ers. “Because they take it with them.’’ And just maybe they meet up with Kimbrel in the big leagues. Kimbrel is the chairman of the Curing Kids Cancer and isn’t shy about asking others in the majors to lend a hand. “In Atlanta we could go to the children’s hospitals in vans and just meet the kids, see what their families are going through,’’ said Kimbrel, who was acquired from the Braves earlier this season. “It’s amazing what that does for the kids. “And really it’s nothing out of the day for us, in the grand scheme of things.’’ Trevor Hoffman has long sounded the horn about the Perfect Game as its spokesman. “It’s pretty special to be a part of it,’’ said Hoffman, the ex-Padre great living in Rancho Santa Fe. “We are extremely proud here in San Diego to host the game, but also to have Rady’s and what it does for kids.’’ But it’s what those kids do for those gifted athletes that the real present appears. “I know when the (players) get to go over and visit with the kids and get a chance to get to know them, it’s something that is a little different,’’ Hoffman said. “I think it opens their eyes that they have an obligation.’’ If the players are fortunate, they advance to the majors — where Kimbrel will be waiting, asking for their help in fighting cancer. He donates money for each save, strikeout and along with his wife, Ashley, treats kids and their families to games, barbecues and concerts. The sound of success will be easy to hear at the Perfect Game. It has produced 165 first-round picks and 109 players made it to The Show. LCC’s Moniak is among those many predict will make it. He was All-CIF, has a full ride to UCLA and survived the first cut for the USA Baseball’s 18-and-under national squad. But there’s a bigger team Moniak will be part of thanks to the Perfect Game Aug. 16. “Not only do they have an opportunity to give back,’’ Hoffman said, “but maybe touch some lives that maybe are a little less fortunate than they are.’’ Contact Jay Paris at Follow him on Twitter on jparis_sports.

After the game they would talk to the kids about what they can do to avoid a disease, like washing their hands, take showers every day and that type of thing. “So they use sports as a metaphor to teach these children life lessons they don’t necessarily learn at home from their families,” he added. Although unrelated to his project, the experience was interesting, he said, and gave him an opportunity to check out the facility. “It was amazing to see. They had cut-outs in the ceilings that provide light,” he said. “They have all these slits in the walls that allow air to flow through. “It was really neat to see how people adapt to that,” he said. “At the same time I know that there could definitely be a benefit to working with them and hopefully be able to provide them with a functional system that can benefit their education in some way.” Joyner said he considers the challenges of living in a different country and experiencing a new culture as opportunities “to learn more about other people and learn more about myself.” Since most people speak Hindi, language was a bit of a barrier. “But a lot of people speak English, too, which is something that sort of surprised me,” he said. Joyner said he also had to adjust to living in a densely populated city. “Even something like boarding the train for the

While the board did make a decision on traffic signals, which was now amended to a community survey, Boon said she didn’t mind being second-guessed and questioned

in public for their previous choice. “It comes with the territory,” Boon said. “And I don’t think it serves the community well for us to go on months and months when we have lots of other issues to deal with.” Boon pointed out in the interest of fairness it was time to move forward so everyone could weigh in on the issue once and for all for the county.

first time was a crazy challenge for me,” he said. “The whole idea of not touching the stranger next to you, that doesn’t really work. “People shove. They yell at you in another language,” he added. “But definitely a fun experience. It was amazing to see how it all works.” Another major challenge has been the weather. “I’m fortunate that I’m from San Diego and we have some of the best weather in the world,” he said.”From June to August there’s the monsoon season here. I saw the sun yesterday for the first time in two weeks. “The raindrops here are huge,” he added.” Something as simple as walking a half mile to work can be a challenge because there’s a tree in the road or there are big puddles that become rivers. “But people here really love the rain because it cools them off,” he said. “People sit outside and enjoy the rain. One of my neighbors asked me sit out in the rain with him and I thought he was crazy, but it’s a pretty common thing here. That was a really neat experience.” Joyner said while the food is different — Indian spices are added to Italian food — he has been eating locally and enjoying it. But he has been “cautious” when it comes to “street food.” Joyner said everyone has been friendly, welcoming and surprisingly they have a lot in common. “We talk about the same TV shows, listen to the same music, go out and do the same activities,” he said. “We are able to connect on so many levels.” For Joyner, experienc-

ing the local culture also meant trying a new sport. “One really fun random thing that I’ve done is learn how to play cricket,” he said. “I grew up playing baseball and I saw my neighbors playing cricket one day so I went out to watch. They were being really competitive so I didn’t think they’d want me to play but they told me to go upstairs and change so I did. “People want me to show them how to play baseball and make American food,” he added. “For them it’s a new experience, too. They want to know about pancakes and peanut butter.” Joyner is one of seven U.S. students selected to participant in the Tata Social Internship. Tata Capital is an investment business firm. The program provides American students with an “opportunity to experience community, society and business in India,” said James Shapiro, the North American resident director for Tata Sons. “Now in its eighth year, the program allows students to gain exposure to the real India and its culture, while bringing international perspectives to the company projects, thus helping promote international understanding,” Shapiro said. Joyner, a bioengineering major, will return home in mid-August for his final semester at Berkeley. While in Thane, Maharastra, he is also completing medical school applications. Given the opportunity he said he would definitely return to India. “I’ve made a lot of friends and built a lot of relationships with people I know I’ll keep in touch with,” he said.



closely with SFID General Manager Mike Bardin for long-term water solutions. “We’re even getting our state legislators involved,” Boon said. According to Boon, California State Assemblyman Brian Jones is scheduled to appear at the next Association Board Meeting Aug. 6. “He will be filling us in on pending water infrastructure legislation that he’s introducing that may impact all of us and he’ll be listening to our concerns,” she said. On the topic of water conservation, Boon then segued into an upcoming July 8 informational meeting championed by the Association at the Garden Club. Beginning at 6 p.m., members will have the opportunity to listen to a lineup of speakers regarding water conservation and landscaping. These individuals will also be on hand for questions.

You’ve asked us to find ways to bring back retail shops, to ensure there is a market, and to provide parking to support the merchants,” she said. “I believe the Board members agree we must develop a plan that will encourage commercial and residential elements necessary for a vibrant Village.” Addressing those concerns, Boon pointed out that she and Overton have met with professional urban planners, developers of planned communities, property owners in the Village, and members of the Village Merchants Group. Boon said that she believed the process they need to follow in order to truly achieve the renaissance that they all desire, would require engaging the services of outside professionals as well as organizing teams of volunteers. “Things are very much in the embryonic and visionary stage,” she said. To date, the Association is establishing a

Village Master Plan Task Force. Members of this task force are volunteer Covenant members. Their duties will consist of collecting goals and future plans for the Board to ultimately review. Boon indicated that their main responsibilities will include researching and pursuing what is necessary to implement a plan in terms of zoning changes, Covenant private partnerships, among other items. In her delivery, Boon said collaborating with this task force would be a revitalization team as well as a possible parking team. Throughout the process, member participation would be encouraged and community events would be organized. Over the next few weeks, Boon said, the task force is developing its initial goals and plans to present to the board for discussion. Boon said she hoped to have this on the agenda as well as the names of the volunteer team at the Aug. 6 meeting. “We will be looking for your input at every step along the way,” Boon said. “Please stay engaged with us.”

pools and spas, Taber offered additional tips such as making certain that the areas were entirely fenced in with a size of 60 inches or higher along with self-closing and latching gates. “Latches should be a minimum of 54 inches from the ground and gates should open outward,” she said. “And have life-saving devices, such as a hook, pole, or flotation device, near the pool. Also, drains in pools and spas should have anti-entrapment drain covers.” For those with children who are not swimming, Taber said not have them play in the same vicinity where the pool is located and to always keep toys out of the pool to avoid temptations. Installing exit alarms to doors leading out to the

pool area will alert adults immediately which are an excellent safety tool. Above all, children should never be left unattended with a pool or water source in the area. Taber said during pool time supervision, an adult should always be watching the children. And if an adult needs to leave, even for a just minute, they must take all the children with them. “A person can drown in just a few inches of water,” she said. “Never leave a child unattended around splash pools, bath tubs, fountains, and so on. Also, if a child goes missing, always check the pool and other water sources first.” For additional pool safety information and resources, visit and

ture icons like Superman, Wonder Woman and characters from Star Wars. The pop art show will last a month from July 18 to Aug. 18. “People can come see it anytime even if they miss the grand opening on July 18,” Fishwick said. Fishwick has been involved in Comic Con for 20 years and he got his start locally at Sea World doing caricature paintings. The theme park has gotten lots of criticism for its treatment of killer whales after the documentary “Blackfish” gained widespread popularity. Yet unbeknownst to many in the community, the company has been churning out successful

artists for years. Many illustrators who have gone on to work for big studios start their careers as caricature painters at Sea World, Fishwick, Huffman and Hernandez included. The caricature program run by Kaman’s Art Shoppes gives young students loads of experience, which Fishwick said is why many go on to successful careers in the industry. “It puts them in the public drawing three-minute caricatures with marker for eight to 10 hours a day,” Fishwick said. “You practice anything for eight to 10 hours a day, you get really good at drawing.” Fishwick has since become a Disney featured artist and worked with the estates of Bob Marley, Elvis Presley, James Brown

and Jimi Hendrix to produce prints for souvenirs ranging from lighters to tee shirts. Fishwick and his business partner Huffman hope to bring in more people to The Centre. “The biggest kept secret in Escondido is The Centre,” Fishwick said. It’s a hybrid shopping center and car dealership. A Lexus dealership takes up the bottom floor, retail space occupies the second floor and a Cohen Brother’s owned restaurant, Vintana, is on the top floor. The Centre also serves as an event space hosting weddings and business meetings. The seminar will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. at Stephen Fishwick’s Fine Art Collection 1205 Auto Park Way 2nd Level.
