‘Ballerina of Auschwitz’ recounts experiences Edith Eva Eger, a Holocaust survivor, talks to Ranch residents of her experiences during World War II By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — From 1941 to 1945, the Jewish populations in parts of Europe during World War II were victims of genocide under Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime. Tragically, it is estimated this mass murder ended the lives of six million Jews. One of the Holocaust survivors is Edith Eva Eger, Ph.D., who emerged amid the devastation with dignity, grace and the hope for a better future. In her younger years, Eger was known for her gymnastics and dance skill, which is why she was referred to as, “The Ballerina of Auschwitz.”

Eger turned 17 while a prisoner at the Auschwitz concentration camp. Last week, the Benedek Family opened up their Rancho Santa Fe home for the Chabad Jewish Center of Rancho Santa Fe so everyone could have the opportunity to meet and hear Eger. A humble Eger, now 87, called the evening a heartwarming experience. Although recovering from a recent bout of pneumonia, her positive spirit was contagious. “I feel that this is my opportunity to meet people and to find more meaning in my life by serving others. If I cannot serve others, I don’t know whether I could really survive much longer,” she said. Eger continued, “Surviving Auschwitz, I am so grateful that I was given an opportunity to give people their opportunity to look at their own lives and make a decision that they could be victims or survivors.” American Soldiers from the 71st Infantry rescued Eger while she was at the Gunskirchen labor camp in Austria. Among a pile of corpses, it

was the faint movement of her hand which alerted a soldier she was alive. When Eger came to America, survivor’s guilt also followed her. So much so, she couldn’t will herself to attend her graduation ceremony at the University of Texas in El Paso, where she earned honors. After some time, however, she realized through the emotional hardship that she no longer was going to be victimized. And this is precisely what she wanted to convey to guests at the Benedek home. She desired the evening be a renaissance for all people. “And to let go of the biggest concentration camp that is in your mind and the key is in your pocket,” she said. It’s about reclaiming one’s genuine self. A clinical psychologist, Eger has a practice in La Jolla, and she also fulfills a position at the University of California, San Diego. Over the years, she has helped TURN TO BALLERINA ON 18

Contract awarded for Solana Beach entry sign By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — Visitors driving into Solana Beach from nearly every angle will soon have no doubt they are entering the city. At the July 8 meeting, council members unanimously awarded a contract to Greenfield Fence Inc. to construct an entry sign at the intersection of Lomas Santa Fe and Highland drives. The artistic monument was planned as part of recently completed traffic calming improvements in the area east of Interstate 5. That project created a new median on Lomas Santa Fe that was considered an excellent site for the city’s fourth entry sign. The other three are located on the north and south ends of Coast Highway 101 and on Valley Avenue, at the Eden Gardens pump station, just north of Via de la Valle. Council approved the

design of the new sign in January. Called the “Gateway to Sunshine,” the structure features a long serpentine, corten steel “S” shape with cut-outs of an abstract sunset on the high end and the words “Solana Beach” on the low front end facing east. The sculpture is 55 feet long and a little more than 6 feet high at the west end. The lettering will be in a font used throughout the

city. Solar lights will illuminate the city name at night. Drought-tolerant landscaping will be added. Mike Swanson and Brett Reisdorf, members of the Public Arts Commission, volunteered to design the piece based on feedback from residents and city staff. During a 50-day public review period the city received about 30 comments that included a variety of

opinions and emotions. Close to two-thirds of the people who responded support the project. Jane Schucard said the piece is “artistic, interesting and unique.” Jane Morton described it as “lovely and fluid.” Other residents were less positive, saying the entry sign is “horrendous” and “tasteless” and “could TURN TO SIGN ON 18

Westreich will receive Lights of LightBridge Award By Christina Macone-Greene Education.

RANCHO SANTA FE — The LightBridge Hospice Community Foundation, a branch of LightBridge Hospice and Palliative Care based in San Diego County, just announced its recipients for their Lights of LightBridge Award. One of its honorees is the president of the Westreich Foundation, Ruth Westreich. A Fairbanks Ranch resident, Westreich is being honored for her unwavering commitment to hospice and palliative care. Jill Mendlen, the chairman of the LightBridge Hospice Community Foundation, is quick to point out that the award is not so much about the Westreich Foundation, but rather, Westreich. “It’s her passion for integrative therapies, for palliative care and really for hospice. She is an undying advocate for those kinds of programs,” she said. Every year, the foundation tries to pick a leader and volunteer who have gone above and beyond to make a difference in the end-of-life journey for people. “And Ruth is one of those lights,” Mendlen said. Westreich has a compassionate roster, which includes being a board member of the UCLA Arts and Healing Initiative, advisor to the Academic Consortium for Complementary and Alternative Healthcare, and devotee to the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine. She is also an avid supporter of Cal State San Marcos’ Institute for Palliative Care and their School of

In the past, she fulfilled seats on the board with Bravewell Collaborative and the Samueli Institute. While Westreich commends LightBridge Hospice for the excellent work that they do, she’s poised on the educational front that supports the whole progressive movement of hospice and palliative care. She also conveys to individuals that palliative care is not always relatable to death and dying. “It can be, but palliative care is also living with chronic illnesses when a cure is no longer possible,” she said. “Quality of life can still be attainable and we are educating the public about what is and what is not care for chronic illness.” By combining integrative medicine to an individual’s care, there are avenues for comfort and alleviation of pain. When Westreich heard she was a recipient for the third annual Lights of LightBridge Award, she was incredibly honored and surprised to receive it. Mendlen describes Westreich as a woman of passion and someone who really cares about people. “Ruth will leave the world a better place because she wants to make that difference,” she said. Mendlen wants people to know that Westreich is not only committed to endof-life care, but in general, all health and wellness. “Ruth can be feisty and she doesn’t mind being out there ‘fighting the fight’ for people and that is part of what I love about her. She is real and genuine.”

Association manager commends Wellhouser, RSF Patrol By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — During the association manager’s update for the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s board of directors, Bill Overton praised the RSF Patrol for the excellent work they continue to do. Not long ago Overton attended a grand opening for a law enforcement regional office in North San Diego County with Matt Wellhouser, RSF Patrol chief. Overton said he was impressed by how well received Wellhouser was by many key people, such as the chief of the local highway patrol. Overton pointed out when Wellhouser was introduced, he was an equal “police chief” compared with other police or sheriff’s departments. “Many of the command officers came over to introduce themselves to me,” Overton said. “And I learned a great deal about how our

a very nice note from the battalion chief of the local fire department,” Overton said. “I’m not going to read the whole letter, but the short version of this is that two of our officers saved two individuals from burning to death in a crash that flipped an automobile a couple of weeks back.” Overton went on to say that the emergency call was made on a cell phone. Because of the nature of the streets for those involved in the accident, they were unable to tell anybody their exact location. “And our guys figured it out, got these guys out, and had their fire extinguishers out. According to the battalion chief, we saved their lives,” said Overton, adding how Rancho Santa Fe Association’s Bill Overton extends high praise on the work done by the Rancho Santa Fe Patrol and RSF Patrol sometimes it’s hard to remember Chief Matt Wellhouser.

Dixon returns for Get Smart Series By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — With water conservation being a primary topic of conversation, the Get Smart series hosted by the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, requested the return of Kelly Fore Dixon, ASLA. Dixon, who is a local resident and landscape designer at Nature Designs in San Diego County, has afforded the community with water wise tips throughout the Ranch. Part two of her Get Smart series, she offered a recap of the drought, saving landscapes, and reducing water bills. With an average of six inches of rainfall a year, Dixon said, any landscape one has is primarily done through irrigation. Dixon wants residents to embrace the environment, which they live in, and that is the Southern California desert. “And it’s very beautiful desert environment,” she said. A few plant change considerations she recommended were San Diego bent grass, ganzia, carex pansa, and buffalo grass. During the course of

the presentation, Dixon was very passionate about trees. She described them as being the number one concern for everyone because they are an asset to properties with nice canopies. “The urban forest is really important,” Dixon said. “Water is going to be like the nuclear explosion if we don’t put the water that we use down in the trees.” Dixon offered ways to give trees the best attention and effort. One example is if there were shrubs or other nonnative foliage around the trees, this competition for water should be reduced. “Remove the shrubs and mulch these areas so that our trees can get 50% of the water that goes underneath their canopies,” she said. “And convert to drip when you can.” While spraying will work fine, Dixon is a proponent of drip irrigation around trees and canopy area so feeder roots can get watered. And utilizing mulch is part of the tree saving equation. She went on to say that

a soil text probe for trees should reveal that one is watering at least 12 inches deep. According to Dixon, mature and established native trees may only need watering once or twice a month. Another tip Dixon shared was to get to know an arborist. If trees begin to wilt, sometimes watering them more is not the answer, but it’s something different. “It’s probably best to find out really what’s going on,” she said, adding how this is when an arborist can help. Dixon also pointed out that magnolia trees are undergoing stress right now due to environmental conditions. “We may not have magnolia trees after this drought,” she said, adding how it’s time to make smarter tree choices. As lawns and nonnative plants begin to fade out, there will be better options for landscape design. “And we’re going to embrace the new beauty of what really a desert looks like in a residential setting,” she said.

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association recently hosted a community meeting at the Garden Club in hopes to provide Covenant members with drought tactics. Before and after the meeting, exhibitors were on hand, including Vanslyke Landscaping, Sprinkler Doctor, Hunter Irrigation, Solana Succulents, Recon Native Plants and Tree of San Diego to discuss water saving tips. Guest speakers for the event included General Manager Mike Bardin of the Santa Fe Irrigation District, Arnold Keene of the RSF Association Parks and Recreation Department, Superintendent Tim Barrier of the RSF Golf Course, board member Melanie Conomikes of Tree of San Diego and keynote speaker landscape designer Kelly Fore Dixon. Spokespersons from the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District also said a few words about clearance and abatement. RSF Association Manager Bill Overton led the meeting and introduced the speakers. “Our plan tonight is to talk about solutions,” he said, adding the meeting was not meant to be a question and answer session. “We want to give you a bunch of information on water conservation. And if you have questions, all our speakers are going to hang around afterward, and you can talk to them as long as you want in great detail.” Bardin was up first. He urged residents to contact the Santa Fe Irrigation District for a complimentary audit so homeowners could find ways to save on their water usage. Bardin also wanted customers to visit their website for new and ongoing information. Towards the end of Bardin’s five-minute presentation, he said the latest numbers showed their

district’s water usage was down a total of 42 percent. “We are bending the curve down,” he said, thanking everyone for their efforts. “Keep it up.” Bardin admitted they are receiving many calls at the district and asked customers to be patient with them as they respond to each and every person. Keene began his pre-

sentation by thanking all the exhibitors and members that were there. “When I first started working here, I was struck by how much residents here valued their landscape, and it’s been like that ever since I’ve been here, and that’s 13 years now,” he said. With the drought, Keene strongly suggested that members personally speak with their landscape maintenance people to make certain they are not overwatering. “You are the ones who have to educate them to let them know,” he said. “So look at your landscape. There are probably a lot of things you can thin out and reduce.” In the Ranch, Keene said that when his crew clears out non-native plants, it gives native plants the time to nurture and be part of a healthier and more attractive landscape. Over the years, he said, the Association has pragmatically changed their plants and sprinklers to be more water wise. “What we’re trying to do is show people who are coming into the Ranch is that you can have a water efficient garden without having a cactus, stone rock garden,” he said. “We have very few cacti, but a lot of succulents and perennials that are drought resistant and native.” Keynote speaker Kelly Fore Dixon shared some tips regarding sprinkler heads, drip lines, watering zones and timers, placement of foliage on a slope in direct sunlight or shade, and keeping trees healthy during the drought. “It’s a super exciting time for the landscape industry right now,” she said, showing before and after pictures of water wise landscape success stories. “We’re obviously changing the way our residential TURN TO SOLUTIONS ON 18

Lawn replacement: Mixed bag of good, bad effects CALIFORNIA FOCUS BY THOMAS D. ELIAS


isten to water officials from Gov. Jerry Brown down to local officials and you’d think replacing lawns with drought-resistant plants or artificial turf is a pure good, no negatives involved. They know lawn replacement, often called “xeriscaping” because it can use cactuses and other desert plants, generally leads to at least a 30 percent cut in household water use. But…you could read reports from the ongoing Women’s World Cup soccer tournament, where ambient temperatures in cities like Winnipeg and Ottawa were in the high 70s at some game times, but temperatures on the synthetic grass fields ranged from 120 to 129 degrees. That’s the “heat island” effect, where non-grassy surfaces like the faux grass and gravel sometimes used to replace lawns gather heat from the sun. Unlike grass, they don’t use the sunlight for anything, so heat energy can pile up and even warm adjacent buildings. Temperature differentials won’t often be as extreme as at the Women’s World Cup, but can drive up electricity use and air conditioning bills. Reports the Accuweather forecasting service’s blog, “Grassy surfaces will be significantly cooler on a sunny day when compared to artificial turf, gravel or pavement.” This is one reason some homeowner associations are trying to ban replacement of front lawns with synthetic grass, even as many water agencies pay by the square foot for tearing out existing lawns. Homeowners often get phone calls from ser-

vices offering free natural turf removal and replacement in exchange for signing over those payments. Some local water agencies, however, refuse to pass along turf-replacement subsidies for fake lawns using synthetic turf. There’s also the fact that grass pulls carbon out of the air. The more green leaf surfaces in any area, the more greenhouse gases will be absorbed. Which means grass helps fight climate change. Grassy surfaces also facilitate recharge of ground water, most water landing on them eventually trickling down into aquifers. So unless replacement surfaces are extremely porous, more storm water will eventually run off into the Pacific unused and less will become ground water. This all leads to questions about the efficiency of lawn replacement campaigns now being run by myriad water agencies. By far the largest of these plans comes from California’s biggest water provider, the six-county Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, often called “the Met,” which has a $450 million, two-year conservation incentive program, aiming to save as much as 80,000 acre feet of water yearly over 10 years. That comes to $562 per acre-foot saved, far more than the Met pays for most water today. The most visible and expensive part of this program is lawn replacement, which will use about three-fourths of the money to replace 172 million square feet of grass, or 3,948 acres. But lawn removal is far from the most effective part of the water-saving plan. Much more will be saved by replacing old fixtures and equipment. “The device replacement part of our program should save about 60,000 of those acre feet,” says Jeff

Kightlinger, general manager of the Met. “Devices give a bigger bang for the buck.” The Met is paying customers to install everything from low-flow showerheads to high-efficiency lawn sprinklers and a new generation of ultra-low-flow toilets. The biggest savings may come from new-generation cooling tower controls for heating and air conditioning units atop large buildings. And yet, reports Kightlinger, “Almost all the news reports on our conservation program have focused around turf replacement.” Then there’s the fact that many thousands of acre-feet of water are wasted by over-watering grass and trees. “Commonly used shrubs, trees and grasses have a lot of drought tolerance,” says Dennis Pittenger, Riverside-based environmental horticulturist for the University of California’s Cooperative Extension. “They are usually overwatered. I think we ought to focus more on people’s watering behavior, and less on replacing plants.” Commercial turf grower Jurgen Gramckow of Oxnard maintains many new drought-resistant landscapes won’t hold up when rains finally come. “Landscapes with bark as ground cover, for example, will lose a lot of it and clog storm drains, too,” he says. “The water agency perspective on lawn replacement is one-dimensional. No one talks about tradeoffs, negative effects.” He’s right about that, which means today’s lawn replacement fad may really be less about water savings than trying to change attitudes, also known as social engineering.

This article is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet, valiant physician and medical researcher. He transformed the lives of countless vaccine injured children and their families and was beloved by thousands. His unique approach to detoxifying the victims of vaccine injuries was living proof that vaccines are dangerous and that by countering the effects of vaccines, children can be cured. Bradstreet’s great success in treating these children represented a huge threat to the status quo. Two other alternative doctors in the South were also were recently killed. Unde r s t a nd ably, other practitioners are gravely concerned for their safety and freedom. After all, isn’t the culture of fear the reason that most parents vaccinate in the first place? Who will treat our vaccine injured children if all the innovative doctors are killed off? Dr. Bradstreet’s family and friends have stated that he was the victim of foul play and never would have taken his own life. Prior to his murder in late June, Dr. Bradstreet’s office was raided by the FDA. As far as we know, he had only one enemy, the entities behind the raid. Dr. Bradstreet offered his expert testimony in “vaccine court.” There were over 5,000 such claims that vaccines caused autism. If the government were to admit to this connection, there would be insufficient funds in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Special masters of


this “kangaroo court” strive to pay out as little as possible and to deny culpability. Parents of the dead or damaged children must prove the connection to vaccines. The CDC sets illogically tight restrictions on the reporting of adverse reactions. In other words, if the child doesn’t die fast enough of the adverse effects or the symptoms do not manifest within an arbitrarily narrow time frame, then claim is dismissed and the parents are left out in the cold. Few pediatricians warn parents of what signs to look for after vaccinations, and fewer still will admit the connection if the parent brings it up. It would not be a good career move for them, now would it? With the passage of

A child’s right to an education in the state of California is now predicated on blind adherence to the mandated vaccine schedule. Home schooling is now the only (separate and not equal) option for families that wish to delay or refuse vaccination. This is often not economically feasible. Was SB 277 was rammed through the legislature in the interests of public health? Tetanus is not a contagious disease. Mandating tetanus vaccine does nothing to protect the public.

Rancho Santa Fe author influenced by libraries By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Local author Edward Cozza made a full circle at Rancho Santa Fe Library. Frequently, Cozza made a beeline to the library to write his fiction work and just recently took part in the Local Author Showcase and Book Signing. He is now an award-winning contemporary fiction novelist for both works, “Near Somewhere” and “Nowhere Yet.” “So, here we are at the library and that’s a big deal for me because I worked on parts of my books in this library,” he said, adding how he also made stops at the Cardiff and Encinitas libraries. The ambience of the libraries, Cozza said, differed from the ones in his hometown of Colorado. He pointed out that Local author Edward Cozza makes use of the counties libraries, including the Rancho Santa Fe branch, they were built to with- to complete two of his novels. He spoke to an audience during a local author showcase and book signing recently.

He didn’t get much work accomplished in those libraries of the past, but made up for it in San Diego County, especially when there was a Pacific Ocean backdrop or quiet ambience of Rancho Santa Fe. He worked in every library. However, Cozza was quick to point out that he never used the experience for research. “My books are fiction and I’m not smart enough to write about anything

true,” he quipped. For him, libraries were a change of scenery as opposed to writing from home every day. Being a true humorist, Cozza said that his dogs became annoyed when he talked to them about the book — they really didn’t care about the characters, so a solo journey to the library was a good thing. “Going to the library has been a real change and hopefully it uplifted by writing a little bit,” he said. “You’ll have to be the judge of that.”

RANCHO SANTA FE — At a recent local author showcase hosted by the Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild, attendees had the opportunity to hear an uplifting presentation on how one can achieve their potential through passion. Dorothy E. Kegler, Ed.D, conducted the lecture. Some segments of the presentation were interactive among her audience, while another included reading poetry from her book entitled, “My Journey: Butterfly Wings.” Kegler had a crystal clear goal she wanted to convey. “The main message I wanted to get across was for people to do what their passion is and to let their passion bring profit,” she said. “They do not need to spend their whole life working at a job that they’re not passionate about.” And when one retires, unhappiness should not follow because they were immersed in a work environment they did not emotionally thrive Dorothy E.

If I could make the choices, we’d be fine, but my girlchild is not the decisive type and so has dallied over four styles of wedding invitation, three variations on table decorations, 12 styles of tiara, six pairs of shoes and who will do her hair. I fancy that I am the perfect mother, allowing her to ponder all this without threatening to hand her a ticket to Vegas. I expect to be breaking out in hives shortly. It seems everyone has a theme now. Her theme is “Enchanted Forest,” so she wants the reception in our overgrown backyard. I am madly trying to make both front and back yards presentable. They’re not what you’d call manicured. In fact, they’re big, weedy, with a chipped fingernail with knuckle hair. We did find her dress, have planned her rehearsal dinner, arranged the honeymoon, hired a caterer, DJ, photographer, videographer, officiate, lighting guy and make-up artist, so I should feel less stressed. I don’t. And I won’t until the last guest has found the way from wedding to reception and has a glass in his or her hand.

had profit from their work, but they may not have experienced the happiness and joy of life. Kegler has made it her mission to seek her passion. In total, it took her roughly 20 years to complete her education. Now, she is now a published author, motivational speaker and established her business, Kegler’s Consulting. Another unwavering goal for Kegler is to inspire individuals to receive an education, especially for younger people. “I would mainly like to inspire high school, middle school, and those that are already in college to pursue further education, mainly graduate studies,” she said. According to Kegler, many youth stop with their high school or bachelor’s degrees. It would be inspirational, she said, to see them go further than this. For Kegler, her pathway toward passion that ultimately leads to success was never based on financial compensation. Instead, it was about helping people and touching lives.

RANCHO SANTA FE — In eighth grade, back in Twinsburg, Ohio, Beth McNellen admits she wasn’t a sterling student. But that all changed when her teacher, Mrs. Frankenhauser, gave the class an assignment to write a story. McNellen, a resident of Lakeside, shared this special tale with the Rancho

Within days, Frankenhauser read a couple stories aloud in class. McNellen went through the student roster in her mind and dis-

tinctively pulled out which authors they would be. McNellen said that her teacher told the class, “But there was one story that was so good that I called my husband who works at night, and I read it over the phone to him. And now I’m going to read that one.” Three lines in to it, McNellen realized it was her story. It took McNellen a few seconds to grasp it because she said no matter how much punctuation one uses, when somebody reads it to themselves, there’s a different cadence. There’s a different speed to it. And that moment was a life changer. “That experience and everything about it, from doing it, enjoy doing it, to having her read it out loud set me on a course to what

to write for the rest of my life — I wanted to feel those feelings again and so I pursued it.” An avid reader and writer, McNellen established her own writing service, The Sound of Your Voice Memoir, and has helped numerous individuals tell their story. She was also the recipient of the 2006 San Diego Book Award for her own memoir, “Maybe Goodnight.” And she encourages everyone to write their own story. During the lecture, McNellen passed out American scholar Joseph Campbell’s, “Hero’s Journey” graph. It’s the stages a person experiences in their lives that brings their character to life in the written word or on the silver screen. It consists of three acts of an “ordinary world,” a “special world,” and then back to a “resurrection” type of ordinary world. And it mirrors what people experience in their daily lives. “Forty years ago I walked into Mrs. Frankenhauser’s and I had been in my ordinary world of being a poor student,” she said. “And then I went into the new and special world of being a writer.” McNellen listens to people tell their life stories. And each person goes through these “world phases” whether they know it or not. According to McNellen, it’s a matter of when one recognizes it. “If you do and you know about it, you can live your life with such vitality because you’re having a story. You’re in the story,” she said. “You’re writing the story of your life.” A blend of patterns, places, and people occur in a lifetime. “And it’s a very powerful experience,” McNellen said.

phones, when dinosaurs roamed the earth. After 15 years of operation, the nonprofit is finally ready to expand its Pterosaurs’ wings and move to a larger space. “The ceilings are full of Pterosaurs, so we need to move,” said Roynon, founder of The Roynon Museum. “There isn’t any room to do anything anymore. We need to expand so we can get large dinosaur material in here.” The museum will be moved to East Grand Avenue and Roynon plans to be open by late September. Currently, the museum, which is located in his two-car garage, is only open

for school and scout groups. Once the museum sets up in its new digs, it will be open to the public. Over the years, Roynon has collected roomfuls of artifacts, including 110 dinosaur eggs, dinosaur skeleton replicas and even prehistoric poop. Roynon said the museum is so popular with children that they won’t miss it, even if they’ve fallen ill. “I’ve had kids pass out on me and fall flat,” Roynon said. He teaches a threehour session to the students and he encourages them to touch the expansive collection of dinosaur replicas and rocks.

“It’s an interpretative museum,” said Roynon. He teaches following this motto: “Tell me and I will forget, show me and I will remember, involve me and I will understand.” The museum was forced to move because it was operating in a residential zone. Jeannie Nutter, the museum’s director, feared a permanent closure, but they were able to find a suitable location. “It was either do something, or shut down,” said Nutter.

Patient-empowered care originating from a functional/integrative approach What do you think of when you hear the words “doctor’s appointment”? Perhaps you envision a brief meeting with an individual in a white lab coat — someone who cares for you and your health, but due to various factors may only have a small window of time for your visit. A visit in which there isn’t usually a lot of excavating to uncover potential hidden details of how you got to where you are and what you might need to do to straighten the kinks in that road. Often the answer is adding another bridge or a curve, to simply go over or around the constant obstacles on your highway to health, rather than repairing the road. Well, that isn’t the picture that Juergen Winkler, MD, founder of Quantum Functional Medicine in Carlsbad, Calif., wants for his patients. His desire is that each patient experience patient-empowered care originating from a Functional/Integrative approach to health care. An approach that takes

the time to look back in order to locate and remove the causes of the kinks and roadblocks that serve as inciting incidences and reoccurring potholes in your road to a higher quality of life. However, this wasn’t always his vision. So let’s take a quick look at how his Functional approach to medicine evolved. Dr. Winkler earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from University of Maryland (Baltimore, MD) in 1988. He completed his Residency Training in Family Practice at the San Bernardino County Medical Center and is licensed by the state of California. To start his journey into the world of health care, Dr. Winkler served as a physician in The United States Air Force from June of 1991 through May of 1995. The next stops on his road to Functional Medicine saw Dr. Winkler working for several years in a private practice in Carlsbad, Calif., and with the Mobile Medical Group. His professional

scope during this time also included Medical Directorships with various home health agencies. When asked why he chose to devote his life to the healing arts, he replied, “Originally I was inspired to become a practitioner because of my interest in finding the root cause of disease and the desire to alleviate suffering. However, my mother-in-law’s suffering with pancreatic cancer served as an incentive to

get even more serious about helping patients with chronic and debilitating health conditions. I began deeper research into the philosophy, methods and outcomes of integrative/functional health care practices.” “It is my desire to offer treatment modalities designed to specifically deal with each individual’s need. That is why I continued my formal medical education and have now earned my Board Certification in Holistic and Integrative Medicine, ABIHM. It is why with over 10 years experience in this field and 1000+ hours of education in holistic/integrative medicine I still continue my studies. The whole purpose of our clinic is to provide the community with health, hope and relief of suffering through a vast diversity of treatment options. Our clinic strives to restore and maintain health through innovative Functional Medicine,” Dr. Winkler concluded. “Functional Medicine” is a systems oriented ap-

proach specific to each individual. It involves a partnership of the patient and the practitioner to target underlying causes of disease. It addresses the whole person with regard to their individual genetics, environmental exposures, lifestyle factors, emotional and physical makeup, each of which is an

It is the goal of Quantum Functional Medicine to bring about health and vitality through the investigation and treatment of each of these components. To that end the clinic offers such treatments as Chelation, Detoxification, Oxidative Therapies, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement, Immune Enhancement, Homotoxicology to restore the body’s immune defens-

PRP and Stem Cells today: Healing and regeneration optimized The regenerative revolution is taking medicine by storm. Every day we hear about new uses for stem cell therapies. Research is progressing at break-neck speed. More and more clinics are offering platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells of varying quality and with mixed results. Controversy regarding these experimental treatments rages. How does one know who to trust and which therapy to choose? Dr. Alexandra Bunyak, a former NIH scholar and founder of BOUNDLESS, a local regenerative practice based in Encinitas, explores these qustions and the currently available evidence: Which regenerative treatment is best? Three main groups of regenerative treatments are currently available: prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma, and adult stem cell therapy. All have been shown to stimulate cartilage growth, repair degenerated and partially torn ligaments and tendons, and speed healing of acute and chronic sports

injuries. The newer PRP and stem cell therapies are stronger, need fewer treatments to work, and have been shown to be safe and effective for nerve injuries and pain. While stem cell therapies offer exciting new options for healing, PRP is more cost effective and frequently sufficient for most sports and spine injuries and arthritis. What is PRP? PRP is a natural, non-surgical treatment option that uses the injection of concentrated platelets to activate and strengthen the body’s healing/inflammation response to injury, relieving pain by promoting long-lasting repair and regeneration. Platelets are nature’s healing centers, carried in your blood stream. When they arrive at an injury site, they release hundreds of proteins, called growth factors, activating local progenitor cells and attracting stem cells to replace the damaged area with normal tissue. A PRP treatment amplifies this natural healing response by collecting platelets from a blood sample, concentrating them four to 10 times baseline, and re-injectMiraCosta Horticulture Department’s plant sales nursery will be having a ½-off sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through July 25 and will host an Open House Aug. 3.

Artful nonprofit Ship in the Woods seeking a new port By Tony Cagala

SOLANA BEACH — The house’s past and present has been one steeped in a tradition of art and culture — it’s future, however, remains unclear. What is clear is that the house, buoyed in between Solana Beach and Del Mar, that has sheltered a nonprofit geared towards creating dialogs and serving as an artist’s haven for new ideas, projects and collaborations will, in the weeks to come, be no more. “So many memories,” said RJ Brooks, who lives at the house and is co-founder of the nonprofit Ship in the Woods. “It’s hard to say what the best are. It’s been a lot of work — it would just be all the people that have been through here,” he said. “I think it’s just the sheer amount of people that have just come through the house over a period of five years.” Five years ago, Brooks

and Kiersten Puusemp found the house. Brooks explained that it was the flow of the house that captured their attentions and suited their needs for wanting to create an artists retreat. “The house itself was the reason why the nonprofit was created,” said Brooks. With Puusemp having since moved to other projects, Brooks has come to fully inherent the nonprofit. It started rather small — first with group showings. Brooks remembers the first event they had at the house — about 30 people showed up. At one of the home’s recent events, there were almost 450 people. Though at the beginning, Brooks said he never had the intention of creating the nonprofit. “Now, I guess I’m kind of RJ Brooks, co-founder of the nonprofit Ship in the Woods at his home and base for many of the organizastuck with Ship in the Woods tion’s shows and events. Brooks and the nonprofit will be looking for a new place to call home after five years for a while,” he said. “But it’s at the property.

But now, the current owners of the property, who are in Washington, D.C., are ready to move back, demolish the structure and build their dream home. “It’d be sad to see this house go, but we don’t want to keep someone from their dream as well,” Brooks said.

Portable shower business booms Showers get shut off at beaches By Ellen Wright

Surge in sales comes as beach showers shutoff By Aaron Burgin

CARLSBAD — Chris Crawford didn't set out to become a key player in California's new drought order. But when the state announced it would be shutting off outdoor showers at the state beaches, the Carlsbad inventor of a pressurized portable shower has become just that. Crawford and his RinseKit have been featured on local and regional media outlets and the two-gallon device has become a hot-selling item for the beach-going crowd left frustrated by the shower shut off. "People have been buying them up like crazy, it's been huge for us," Crawford said on Wednesday, the day the statewide shower shutoff officially began. "People who have been on the fence about them are now saying, 'Oh, man, I gotta jump on this fast before they sell out.'" Crawford said he's even gotten his device into the hands of state parks' officials, who have been eager to give beach goers alternatives during the

shower hiatus. "Everyone's understandably upset about not having the showers," Crawford said. "And when I talked to the parks people, they are looking for things like this, so when they are asked, 'Well, what do we do?' they can have an answer." Crawford, an avid surfer who was in pool construction, made his prototype back in 2012 as a faster way to clean up after catching waves. Soon thereafter, his fatherin-law wanted one, and RinseKit was born. The device puts water into a specially designed pressurized chamber, which expels the water from a showerhead when the valve holding it is released. Crawford credits his years in the pool and shower construction for the understanding he gained about hydraulics. Popular with surfers the past few years, Crawford said he noticed an uptick in sales earlier this year, when beaches started unofficially downing their showers ahead of the state mandate. "I would pull mine out after surfing and people

would see and they would say, 'Whoa, where can I get one, that's awesome,'" Crawford said. "They were confused how it worked, but after I showed them how, they were really intrigued. We haven't had one person say, 'Oh, this sucks' or anything like that, everything has been positive thus far." Then, when the state announced this month that it would take action as a result of the ongoing water shortage, consumers and the media latched on to the product, Crawford said, listing numerous television and newspaper interviews he's had over the past few weeks. Crawford said the devices also go hand-in-hand with the state's water conservation message, as the shower unit only uses two gallons of water for a two to three minute shower. "It saves water, and you get the same type of pressure that you would get from one of the showers at the beach," he said. One portable shower costs $89 and can be purchased at one of 50 dealership locations in San Diego. For more information visit the company's website at

REGION — Showers at state beaches are the latest casualties to water restriction mandates. Earlier this month, the California Department of Parks and Recreation announced the outdoor showers at state beaches would be shut off, effective since July 15. The department estimates the shut off will save 18 million gallons of water annually. Southern Division Chief of State Parks Brian Ketterer stressed they’re not tearing the showers out but are forced to take conservation measures where they can. Cities and counties are able to cut irrigation use on large swaths of grass although Ketterer said state parks aren’t able to easily cut back. “We don’t have (lawns) in our state parks. A lot of our state parks are very natural and open space and so we don’t do a whole lot of irrigation unless it’s for

water agency. Each shower rinse uses 1.2 gallons. The state department is currently using more water now than it did in 2013, which Ketterer said is due

native vegetation or it’s for specific projects or historic landscapes,” Ketterer said. The state parks are responsible to local water authorities, as well as the state. The state beaches that are affected include San Elijo, Cardiff, Carlsbad, South Carlsbad, Torrey Pines, Silver Strand and San Onofre state beaches. The showers will be shut off until the drought subsides or the state mandates are lifted. The agency is required to cutback water use anywhere from 25 to 50 percent compared to 2013 water usage, depending on the local

to a rise in popularity of the parks, warm weather and good surf. “We have to get back at a minimum, to the 2013 levels and then reduce from there,” Ketterer said. More visitors are coming to the beaches because the ocean temperature has been warmer than average and the sand replenishment project, which took place two years ago, left wideopen sandy beaches. Finally, Ketterer said, the economy is bouncing back so more people can afford to travel to the beaches. State officials recommend beach visitors bring

jugs of water or a bristle brush to scrub off sand and dirt. Michael Scrydloff said in the 25 years he’s surfed at Cardiff State Beach, he’s never seen the showers shut off. He said it’s somewhat frustrating to have paid for a park pass and not have access to the showers although he doesn’t mind adjusting. “I’ll just bring my own water,” said Scrydloff. Ketterer said that’s what he hopes for the rest of the beach visitors. “That’s basically what we’re asking people to do, make a personal decision in how you are going to use water,” Ketterer said. Ketterer said the department has already cut back water in other areas by increasing leak detection and leak repair projects, and reducing the water used for construction and restoration projects and housekeeping. “We’re at the point now that we have to start looking at the amenities that we’re providing to the public and unfortunately, that’s the next phase that we’re going into, should the drought continue,” Ketterer said.

Eger added, “I was victimized, but I’m not the victim.”



objects left behind from previous events — objects that will eventually need to be packed up: A geodesic dome covered over with the remnants of melted down candles, a side room wrapped floor to ceiling with vinyl wall paper from artists the de la Torre brothers, and outside a wooden structure dubbed the Rhodospin. Working with the New School of Architectural Design to build the Rhodospin, the structure gives an experience of perception based on the work of Patrick Cavanaugh, a vision scientist, who also was one of the house’s guest lecturers. “I think that’s the attraction for Ship in the Woods, is that it’s more of like an immersive experience of these interactive installations,”


moved to San Diego from San Francisco. I started managing at Sushi on the Rock in La Jolla and quickly learned that I loved everything about the sushi culture — the food, the people, the fun of it. Sushi embodies all the senses and it is a very social cuisine. I worked there for almost five years, learning all sides of the business, which included opening their second location, starting a catering department, and the human resource side of restaurants. I met my business partner, a sushi chef, while working there as well as many great friends and my husband, too. When you decided to open the first Sushi Lounge in Poway, was it more difficult staffing your culinary team than a regular restaurant? I think it was and still is, as we need so many people to help it run smoothly. We basically have two kitchens so it takes a lot of work to make each item. At the time when we opened in Poway, sushi was just starting to really take off. Before that people still thought it was a trend that was going to die off. We had a hard time finding the right people because everyone wanted to add a sushi bar to

Brooks said. “It’s not so much just art that you put up on the wall kind of thing.” A lot of the shows that are put on at the house are conceptual-based. “It’s not just flat work, or landscape painting or ocean painting or surf stuff. It’s academic,” Brooks said. For Brooks, a Pittsburgh, Penn. native, who came out to the West Coast almost 10 years ago, and without knowing too many other people out here, it was a chance for something different, he explained. Now he knows a lot of people in San Diego and the work he and the others have done with their nonprofit have captured the attentions of plenty of artists, musicians, educators, scientists and idea-makers locally and around the country. But Brooks said he feels what they’re doing in the art

world is definitely having an impact, especially in the North County, by showing that art is not just something that’s in an institution or box gallery, that it’s part of everyday life and that you can have these dialogs within your own home. Brooks said he’s alerted his neighbors that they’ll soon be hoisting up their anchor. Over the years, they’ve had “mixed” responses from the neighborhood, though mostly they’ve become friends with the majority of them, Brooks explained. He said he could understand some issues with neighbors, namely parking. But the neighbors who haven’t come to the shows don’t know what exactly goes on or the people that come, Brooks added. Though he was quick to point out that it’s not a party house.

areas only receive about six inches of rainfall a year. And when it rains, it’s so light at times that it barely soaks into the soil. According to Dixon, people really do need to capture every single drop and use it on their landscape either by turning rain gutters

onto foliage, utilizing a rain catch barrel system or both. Irrigation needs to be managed wisely. “So contrary to popular press, we do care about our water usage, and we do care about how that water is used for our landscaping,” she said.

His collection includes pieces from the Badlands in South Dakota, China, Mongolia, England and Mexico. Since legislation makes it difficult to get new pieces, he gets new artifacts from trade shows, including one in Tucson, Ariz. The collection is worth $5 million.

Roynon said he’s not extremely worried about thieves because the pieces are so unique, they’d be impossible to sell. His biggest concern is funding for the museum’s future. “When I leave this mortal coil, I want it to be in safe hands and I want it to be in perpetuity,” Roynon said. He hopes to raise $150,000 for relocation fees. To find out how to donate time, funds or labor visit

be a traffic hazard.” Ted Hoehn said he would rather not have any “‘public art’ imposed on” him. The estimated cost of construction is approximately $40,000. Money will come from the public arts reserve account, which is funded through the transient oc-




cago,” Roynon said of his plans for the new location. The collection is 70 years in the making. Roynon’s interest in paleontology began when he was growing up in the hills of Santa Cruz. He found fossils there, some of which are showcased at the museum. He’s been all over collecting fossils although new legislation eventually stopped him from continuing to dig.


and food. “I speak five languages and know the best cuisine of each country,” Luciano revealed. “I have been at Pala for 14 years now. “We opened Mama’s Restaurant in 2002 just before the hotel opened with 507 rooms. Now we have the best Mediterranean food with CAVE and a small and large bites menu.” I asked him for his favorite on the menu and he had a quick answer: “Very hard to say. That’s like asking a mamma which is her favorite son!” It wasn’t hard for me to choose some delicious entrees, starting with a lovely presentation of Burrata, a soft cheese specialty surrounded by slow-roasted Italian tomato with herbs. For my pasta, I chose a Tomato Risotto. The Risotto choices change daily and afford the Risotto lover a collection of flavors, which give new meaning to “come back for more.” The large bite entrée was one for the books. Luciano presented a double cut Colorado lamb chop with plenty of rosemary and garlic, in a Cabernet wine sauce — truly a gift

Surfer with Asperger’s finds solace in the water By Tony Cagala

ENCINITAS — His maneuvers on a surfboard are as liquid as water itself. Clay Marzo’s surfing abilities have been likened to Mozart playing the piano and Monet painting — in a word — masterful. “When I’m out there, nothing else matters,” Marzo said. “I just let everything go and have fun. I suppose…the water calms me.” That’s how it’s always felt for him to be in the water. But to be out of the water was, for Marzo, like being a fish out of water. The discomforts of “normal” life — socializing and relating to other people — would prove suffocating. By the time he was 17 Marzo was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism that includes a tremendous difficulty with social and communication skills. Now 26, Marzo’s struggles with living with his condition are documented in the memoir, “Just Add Water: A Surfing Savant’s Journey with Asperger’s,” (Houghton Mifflin

Harcourt, $26) co-authored by Robert Yehling. “It’s surreal,” Marzo said of the book. “It’s pretty crazy that people want to hear my story.” The idea for the book came to

light over a dinner at El Callejon restaurant in Encinitas when Mitch Barnes, Marzo’s manager mentioned the idea to Yehling, an Oceanside

OCEANSIDE — The Supergirl Pro surf competition is set to hit the shore of Oceanside Pier beach the weekend of July 24. The top 108 professional female surfers will be competing for significant prize money, and earning points toward the World Championship Tour. This is the ninth year of the annual all-women competition. Rick Bratman, event founder, director and CEO of ASA Entertainment Group, said during the first year many people didn’t realize the contest’s potential. “Ten years ago, when I was contemplating doing this series, some people said ‘you’re out of your mind,’” Bratman said. “There has been a huge evolution in the respect level for women surfers, and the bigger, better, badder things they’re doing in the ocean.” The surf contest drew 67,000 spectators last year, and is hailed as the largest female surfing competi-

Contest bring together world’s top surfers By Promise Yee

Del Mar Race Track is a horse of a different color

tion in the world. “My company has been doing 175 events a year, for 25 years, there’s no event like this,” Bratman said. “It’s truly unique. “It’s the only WSL sixstar women’s event in the nation, it’s such an elite field.” There will be continuous competition over three days to pack in top female surfers, who range in age from 11 to 34. Elite surfers to hit the waves this year include Alana Blanchard, Courtney Conlogue, Coco Ho, Malia Manuel and Lakey Peterson. Bratman said female pros carve up the waves with style and grace, and bring kindness and appreciation to competition. “It’s the best surfing in the world,” Bratman said. July 24 will narrow the field from 108 to 48 semifinalists. “On Friday dreams are made,” Bratman said. “Of the 17 girls from the World Championship Tour, 15 of the 17 came through Supergirl,” Bratman said. The following day will cut the number of top surfers from 48 to 16. Final competition will take place on July 26 and crown the Supergirl Pro winner. There will also be a TURN TO CONTEST ON 23

f you can read this, congratulations: you survived Del Mar Race Track’s opening day. Some greet summer on Memorial Day Weekend, others mark June 21, the longest day of the year, to signal summer’s arrival. But North Countians know it’s not our favorite season until Trevor Denman, the voice of Del Mar, clears his throat for those enticing words we love to hear: “And they’re off.’’ Yes they are and take a plane, take a train or take a car to reach the iconic racing oval hugging the Pacific Ocean. “It will be crazy,’’ Joe Harper said. Harper, a Del Mar resident, should know. He’s the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club’s head honcho and through his handy work, Del Mar is a horse of different color. While other tracks around the nation and Southern California struggle — R.I.P., Hollywood Park — patrons continue to cram into Del Mar. Thursday’s opener was expected to draw in excess of 40,000 people and some will even remember being there. We recall when Del Mar was as popular as the Chargers’ Mark Fabiani. But Harper and his marketing crew transformed a day at the races into a party by the sea. And it’s clear it wasn’t some half-baked idea.

You’ll still see the elderly Del Mar bettors, chomping an unlit stogie and staring at the handicapper’s tips as if they were the scriptures. But Harper decided years ago to mix some Eves with all these Adams and there’s been nothing rotten about it. “It’s the women,’’ Harper said of Del Mar’s niche. That’s the difference — and we can’t argue. Harper combined folks going to the races to see the horses with those going to the races to be seen. The parade of well-dressed women — and men — sauntering through the gates is what makes Del Mar, Del Mar. Never mind the most famous horse since Mr. Ed is lounging in stable FF. Triple Crown winner American Pharoah is chillin’ at the beach and can you blame the 3-year-old colt? “It’s cooler here,’’ said American Pharoah’s handler, Jimmy Barnes, after the celebrated horse arrived on Tuesday from Santa Anita. It’s doubtful American Pharoah competes next month in Del Mar’s $1 million Pacific Classic. Instead its blinders are pointed toward the Haskell at Monmouth Park, and then this fall’s Breeder’s Cup. But take a long drink of Del Mar, with or without American Pharoah. Even if not racing, he wants to be near the action. Del Mar’s plate is overflowing with events that have as much to do with horse racing as the Padres do with competing for a World Series. Man, if ol’ Bing Crosby could see the joint now imagine how he TURN TO RACES ON 23

resident and journalist of almost 40 years. At first, Yehling, a former sports reporter with the Blade Citizen and surf writer, wasn’t sure about the idea. Usually, books by surfers just don’t do very well in mainstream publishing, he explained. Yehling knew of Marzo and his surfing abilities ever since he’d won the men’s nationals in 2005, but had only learned of the Asperger’s diagnosis after watching the documentary, “Just Add Water” about him. “Before that, I just thought this kid’s quirky, and a lot of idiosyncrasies, and sounds like a surfer going his own way to me,” said Yehling. “And that was my impression before he was diagnosed. And obviously since then, it’s a whole different perception.” Prior to meeting, Yehling began delving into the works of autism advocate and researcher Temple Grandin. He talked with some longtime friends of his, a married couple in Carlsbad who have a son with Asperger’s. The advice he got: “Until you get in the rhythm of how he communicates, be very, very patient and be ready to have periods of time where you have to say nothing.” That advice would come



would swoon. Of course the big hats dominated opening day, with $4,000 in prize money for the nicest — or most radical — one. There are Donut Days on Saturday and Aug. 15, with Denman as the host. He delivers a behind-thescenes peek of all things horse racing. Jockey Photo Day is Sunday, and the riders promise not to bring their whips. Every weekend morning breakfast is served

to serve Yehling well. “This was the toughest sustained interviewing project I’ve ever had,” Yehling said. “But it was also one of the most fun.” On some days, Marzo would be talkative as the two drove around Hawaii, where Marzo lives, with a tape recorder going. And then on other days Marzo would just shut down — there were times when he wouldn’t say a word all day. When Yehling would sit there and say nothing, he found that the next day, Marzo would be talkative again. The two shared an inwhile the ponies train on the track. And with American Pharoah working around 7:45 a.m., there’s motivation to rise early. At any hour, good music warms the soul. Del Mar’s concert series, with many held on Friday when the first post is 4 p.m., is a hoot. Ziggy Marley holds court on Aug. 1, with Weezer winging and singing it Sept. 6. Weezer’s encore will be less than 24 hours from

stant bond that had nothing at all to do with surfing — the Lakers. But to get him talking about surfing, Yehling said, you could see the excitement in him. When Marzo started twirling his hair, an idiosyncrasy of his, Yehling explained, it would signal when he was really excited about something. Yehling believes it’s Marzo’s condition that helps him to see the waves the way he does. “And the reason why is when he goes out in the water, he is the water,” Yehling said. For Marzo, the wave, he said, looks simply like a “good ride” to him. Part of what the book aims to achieve is not only to tell the story of one of the world’s best surfers but also celebrate the gifts that a lot of higher-functioning autistic people and people with Asperger’s have, Yehlinger said. “We should be celebrating their gifts and their way of looking at the world…rather than looking at them with some kind of social stigma,” Yehling said. The message that Marzo looks to leave people with: “Whatever you’re passionate about go do it.” Marzo and Yehling will be signing copies of the book at Witt’s Carlsbad Pipelines at 10 a.m. and at the Encinitas Barnes & Noble at 2 p.m. July 25. the season’s final post. And we’ll shed a tear with you. But there’s 40 days of racing, which can provide smiles and fill wallets. Of course, there’s also a loser in every race but we’ll leave that for another time. In these parts, it’s summer time and nothing screams that like a day at Del Mar. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@ Follow him on Twitter at jparis_sports.
