RANCHO SANTA FE — On May 28 supporters to benefit Father Joe’s Villages united at its annual event, “Children’s Gala Under The Stars.” The outdoor venue was held at the Inn of Rancho Santa Fe where an array of silent auction tables, entertainment, and savories awaited guests. This year marked its 31st annual gala. Monies raised during the course of the evening are filtered back to its programs such as caring for more than 300 homeless children as well as around 100 teens at the Toussaint Academy every year. The goal of the gala was to be the “glimmer of hope” under the stars TURN TO GALA ON 15

Members speak out about closure of Stumps Market By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Association held its monthly meeting across the street at The Garden Club anticipating a larger crowd than normal. Nearly every seat at the venue was taken for the morning session. While the board discussed business matters early on, a time designation of 11 a.m. was dedicated to a hot topic item — the closure of Stumps Market. The Association’s building commissioner Robert Green was at the podium telling the crowd that an application has been submitted to the Design Review Committee for possible future plans of Plaza De Santa Fe. The applicant Susan Wooley had her representative Franco Simone present. Green highlighted the proposed changes for the Plaza that would include Lillian Rice inspired renovations, relocating the Post Office at another locale in the plaza, new courtyard, increased parking spots, and more. Green said that “new market discussions” were in progress.This was one of a series of informational meetings. Green reiterated that no deci-

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe has been informed of severe water cutbacks raising them to a Level 3 Water Shortage Response on June 1. And electronic signs throughout the Ranch are delivering the message. According to the Santa Fe Irrigation District, at its May meeting, the board of directors approved an elevated comprehensive plan of action. Jessica Parks, management analyst and public information officer of the Santa Fe Irrigation District, they imposed mandatory allocations with severe cost penalties for exceeding those allocations. Irrigation days have dropped from three to two days. Parks wants everyone to know that the District will be increasing its enforcement by adding staff in the field to help customers comply with the mandatory water use restrictions. “Beginning July 1, 2015, water allocations for all customers will be imposed with severe cost penalties for exceeding the allocation. The penalties could result in quadrupling of water charges for those that don’t comply, and for flagrant violators, the District can impose flow restrictors and shutting off water service,” she said. “The water allocations will be based on each customer’s 2013 water usage. Each residence will receive a base allotment for the billing period, but all usage above the allotment must be cut back by

In addition to cutting back irrigation, a Level 3 restriction also prohibits washing vehicles at one’s residence, hosing down courtyards, among other things many did before the drought. Parks said there would be doubled penalties for not following water use

restrictions and increased enforcement of those restrictions. In April 2015, data was released regarding water usage. Not only was the District the highest per capita user in the State, Parks said, but the water usage went up 9 percent while all other water districts within the County of San Diego went down. “It is critical that customers comply with the water use restrictions and reduce their water use,” TURN TO WATER ON 15

Garden Club awards $50,000 in grants to organizations By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — There was a large turnout for the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club’s annual meeting. Co-president, Fred Wasserman, welcomed guests and prepared them for a special grant awards presentation followed by guest speaker Bill Toone, who would lecture about monarch butterflies. “Tonight, we are having our first award ceremony that we’ve ever had of this type. We’re going to be giving grants to the organizations that were successful in passing the test for our grant committee,” he said. From there, Wasserman introduced the RSF Garden Club’s executive director, Erin Browne, so she could kick-off the grant award ceremony. A total of $50,000 was distributed to 11 organizations, which fit the 2015 grant criteria. First up was the Osuna Adobe TURN TO GRANTS ON 15

Maintaining independence at home By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Recently, the Alzheimer’s Association visited the Rancho Santa Fe Library for their monthly presentation. Kelly Rein, MSW, led a valuable interactive lecture regarding how a caregiver to one who has Alzheimer’s can implement safety in the home to promote independence. During the talk, Rein also spoke of other types of dementia and how it changes the brain and can also impact safety. In every room of a residence, Rein said, there should be adequate lighting throughout the home. “We want to reduce any clutter or things that would cause tripping or falling,” she said. “We want to provide guidance for individuals such as labels and pictures.” Rein said that with guidance, caregivers can redirect things and objects in subtle ways, such as removing the knobs off the stove if one can no longer Kelly Rein, MSW, of the Alzheimer’s Association leads a lecture on safely operate it. how a caregiver to one who has Alzheimer’s can implement safety in Securing toxic sub- the home to promote independence.

And with Alzheimer’s or dementia, Rein said, everyone is at risk for wandering. “It’s just basically getting lost or disoriented in a familiar or unfamiliar environment,” Rein said. “So it can happen anywhere and to anyone. And it can happen at all stages of the disease.” As the disease progresses, the risk of wandering does increase. Rein wanted people to know that “planning” in the early stages is vital especially so those with dementia can help navigate themselves in their community and at home. During the middle stage and late stages of the disease, a person must have 24-hour supervision to prevent wandering. “In general, we say supervision is the best remedy,” she said. “MoniTURN TO LECTURE ON 15

Welcome to the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club! Our organization was established in 1926 by a small group of families in the town who wanted to further the advancement of gardening and landscaping in the Ranch. Eighty-nine years later, we are now one of the oldest organizations in Rancho Santa Fe continuing a legacy of community involvement and service. We work diligently to engage members in FUN activities that promote charitable horticulture and charitable conservation. Grant Program 2015 has been very exciting for the Garden Club! At the annual club meeting in May, we recognized 11 organizations that were awarded grants totaling $50,000. The funds will be used for projects that promote charitable horticulture and conservation in Rancho Santa Fe and surrounding communities. Recipients were selected from a group of local 501c3 nonprofit organizations who responded to our request for proposals. Our grant committee worked very hard going through each proposal, conducting site visits, and determining which organizations should be awarded the grants this year. Our grant program takes places annually, with our next request for proposals scheduled to go out in February 2016. Club Activities Our club works hard to provide a variety of programs that provide an opportunity for members and friends to gather together for fun activities that are centered on plants and nature. Our field trip program is kicking off with an outing to the Water Conservation Garden on June 15th and the Carlsbad Agua Hedionda Lagoon in July. Our ‘Coffee in the Garden’ activities have been a huge success. Members open their homes for a private garden tour where fellow Garden Club members and guests can enjoy coffee and time together. Our club meetings provide an opportunity for our membership and guests to congregate for club business

Time for North County to get on board with housing package By Bruce Reznik

What happened to less government is more? By Stephen Keyes

Having watched the May 20 “alcohol ban” issue on the city website, I’m blown away that this non-issue made it all the way to this dais. Who’s driving this thing? The only real take-away from this session that I could see is the potential liability in the combination of skateboarding and beer in the new Encinitas Community Park. Well then, set up new parameters for that park for 12 months and monitor that. End of story. The rush by Parks and Recreation to legislate an across-the-board, scatter-shot law that will give teeth to policing Encinitas adults enjoying a glass of wine as they celebrate the setting sun is highly disturbing. What happened to the “less government is more” as a template for governing? Especially when it comes to creating legislation that cannot easily be undone, as longtime resident and speaker Denis Puscas noted at the podium. Mr. Puscas speaks for a much larger group of people, you may be sure. As Puscas mentioned, it’s about the larger neighborhood coming together to appreciate community and celebrate sunset, most with dogs, once a week. Not everyone knows one another. And that’s part of the beauty of it: people are plugged in to different degrees. Welcome to the neighborhood! It’s about neighbors, enjoying the quality of life

right here, where we live. This proposal by Parks and Recreation Director Lisa Rudloff banning alcohol at all city parks — citing cookie-cutter “continuity and consistency” for Encinitas Sheriff’s — is unnecessary and punctilious in the way that big government, unchecked, becomes its own worst enemy. Why not regard each park as its own entity, with its own community identity? There is no homeless/alcohol problem at Orpheus Park, for example, and only an occasional skateboarder. Ms. Rudloff further mentions the other cities that have alcohol bans, but fails to include the many others that do not. Her lobbying for more government regulation loses credibility quickly. The four Encinitas parks where alcohol has been banned all had everything to do with the combustible combo of homeless and alcohol. Period. Even more ridiculous bureaucratic rhetoric was put forward by Jason La Riva, Encinitas Parks and Beach Superintendent, who along with Director Rudloff is proposing new sunrise to sunset hours because the city doesn’t want people congregating at night. Yes, he said that. When did Marshall Law arrive in Encinitas? Mr. La Riva went on to clarify that “tripping, falling, and other safety hazards are a greater risk at nighttime.” Yes, he said that, too. So the real question be-

fore the City Council seems to be: Should Encinitas create a greater governmental monolith because something might happen in the future? Or because we tidily want to make things “consistent” for the Sheriff’s Department? At what cost do we do that? Although respected, the opinion of the Encinitas Sheriff Department is not sacrosanct, nor should it be. It serves the people, and the peace — not the other way around. The city council creates legislation for the citizens who put their trust in them at the ballot box. The Sheriff’s Department did not elect the City Council. Nor did the council staff, or the head of parks and recreation. Curtailing rights that citizens here now enjoy should not be so flippantly put forward. Once gone, they are lost. That’s the political rule-of-thumb. I am genuinely surprised by the opinions of Mr. Kranz and Ms. Shaffer. I think Catherine Blakespeare is wise and magnanimous in seeing a bigger picture — we’re lucky to have her broad mindset onboard. I did not vote for Mr. Muir or Ms. Gaspar in this last election, but with what I see, I am completely open in the next election. Thank you, you three, for your wisdom and sensibility in this vote. Long live free Encinitas. Stephen Keyes is a Leucadia resident.

Place focus on the state’s storm water guidelines By Scott Carter

Please remember that the weather as most things in nature changes, usually in cycles. Having a knee jerk reaction to one of these cycles has been proven to be short sided. Fact, the earth is approximately two thirds water, California is located on the Pacific Ocean on its west boundaries. Desalination plants are being developed and used alonein this region, there are drought resistant plants as well as lawns etc. Today, property septic system(s) may be one of these solutions. All water use of a property using a septic system becomes recycled on the property, 100 percent.

Design, implementation and use of recycled water (gray water etc...) both in commercial and residential new buildings/development should be enforced and mandated, not optional. Property development, landscape plans should be strongly reviewed on these two subjects and enforced using both “storm water” and “drought” guidelines. This should become a mandatory requirement as is currently state storm water guidelines. Do not be fooled by the simple concept of “Morphing.” Just because today we are in a drought should not mean that we disregard prudent and sound state mandated “storm water” guidelines. Allowing a property or

project to become developed that doses not fulfill state “storm water” mandated guidelines, just because we are currently in a drought period, will prove to be harmful to us all. When it rains, and it will, the rain run off from properties from both commercial and residential properties goes directly into its, neighbors, streets and Ocean. Focus on current state “storm water” guidelines is even more important today due to the possible and current drought conditions. Safety for our environment as well as our residents should be first and foremost, not profit. Scott Carter is a Leucadia resident.

What issue is so universal it brings together diverse groups like the San Diego Chamber of Commerce, California Building Industry Association, California Association of Realtors, social justice and environmental advocates, business and organized labor, veterans, seniors, the LGBT community and people with disabilities? Access to affordable homes is critical to everyone in our community, and a package of bills championed by Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) offers California the opportunity to start building again after most affordable construction has ground to a halt. With so much support from all over the spectrum, it is surprising that our North County Assemblymembers haven’t supported this groundbreaking legislation. Every San Diegan knows that the cost of housing in the region is too high. Rarely a week goes by without a study identifying San Diego as one of — if not the — most expensive places to live. Most recently, the National Low Income Housing Coalition’s Out of Reach report concludes that the annual income needed to afford a two-bedroom apartment in San Diego County is $55,600, meaning a minimum wage worker would have to work 119 hours per week — or three full-time jobs — just to pay the rent. Even when the average San Diegan does somehow manage to pay their rent, this means these individuals — working families, seniors, veterans and others on fixed income — do not have sufficient funds to pay for transportation costs to get to work, utilities, healthy foods or health care. To remedy this growing crisis throughout California, the state legislature is considering strategies to create more affordable housing state-


wide. The centerpiece of this package is Assembly Bill (‘AB’) 1335, Atkins’ (AD 78) legislation that will provide a stable and permanent source of funding to build affordable homes for people in need. Having a dedicated funding source is critical to provide developers with the certainty they need to spend the years it takes to build such affordable communities. It is necessary to make up for the loss of redevelopment funds that used to provide an ongoing source of funding to the tune of approximately $86 million annually in San Diego and over $1 billion statewide. It is essential in San Diego, which as recently reported by the California Housing Part-

ilies and in need of stable homes. And the business community is supportive of AB 1335 as they recognize the San Diego region will no longer be competitive for business if workers cannot afford to live here. With this broad-based community support, AB 1335 has yet to receive support from our three North County legislators — Assemblymembers Brian Maienschein, Rocky Chavez and Marie Waldron. While these legislators have been advocates for veterans’ issues, the homeless and enhancing the climate for local business, they have yet to commit to supporting this legislation that will provide the critical tools to

Access to affordable homes is critical to everyone in our community... nership Corporation, has a staggering shortfall of 142,564 homes affordable to lower income San Diegans, the second highest total of any county in the state. Veterans groups have gotten behind AB 1335 as they recognize San Diego is home to nearly 39,000 post-9/11 veterans, the highest concentration in the nation, many of whom are now or soon will be in need of stable, affordable homes. Homeless advocacy groups are onboard as we continue to move to a proven “housing first” model that demonstrates the most important factor in getting people off the street is to provide a safe and stable home. The LGBT community supports affordable housing as they recognize that up to 40 percent of homeless youth are from the LGBT community — separated from their fam-

address issues they care so deeply about when it comes to a floor vote in the Assembly by June 5. We call upon all legislators throughout the region to support the entirety of the affordable homes package, including AB 1335, and ask upon all San Diegans to contact their local legislators in support of these measures. As San Diego Housing Federation’s Executive Director, Bruce Reznik leads the organization in its efforts to ensure all San Diegans, regardless of income, can afford a safe and stable place to call home. About the San Diego Housing Federation The San Diego Housing Federation is a broad coalition of organizations and advocates that work to ensure all San Diegans, regardless of income, have access to a safe, stable and affordable place they can call home.

Total Health Center founder visits RSF Golf Club By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — At a recent “Get Smart” series hosted by the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, founder of Total Health Center, David Clayton, M.D., spoke to the attendees. At the beginning of his talk, he mentioned how 90 percent of adults by the time they reach 60 years of age will be on one or more medications. The goal at the Total Health Center in San Diego is to give their members the tools they need through diet and exercise to lower the need for medication. Clayton said despite the enthusiasm for a healthy diet and exercising, there remains a looming issue. “As a physician, I can tell you that there is still an incredible burden of disease that we face regardless of how healthy we try to live,” he said, noting how he practices medicine at Scripps. “We have the fittest city in the country, and yet still, we are taking all this medication.” And then there is the

Branden Recendiz, Cooper Vincik, Kaitlyn Hand, Jaccob Malter, Lucas Myers, Alexandra Nicholas, and David Scuba. Up next was the middle school. “Those of you who have teenagers know that this is extra challenging to get them up in the morning and go to school,” Corduan said. Middle school students who were honored for perfect attendance were Delaney Lee-Bellows, Daniel Scuba, Melody Sedighi, John Flaming, Aaron Lustig, Lucas Luwa, Justin Yu, Jack Anthenelli and Alexander Brown. As each child received their recognition, one by one they were greeted by the principals, school board

concern of disease such as cancer, blindness and Alzheimer’s disease. “These are all the things that we worry about, but yet I can tell you right now all of these are inextricably linked to diet and exercise. So if we are all choosing to live a healthy lifestyle, why is it that we’re not dodging these bullets as we get older?” he asked the crowd. Clayton went on to say that statistically, those in attendance had a 40 percent chance in their lifetime of ending up in a nursing home with Alzheimer’s disease. The tip regarding diet was that if a food wasn’t around a million years ago then don’t eat it. It’s not about scaling back on portions. Instead, Clayton said, it’s making smart food choices. “It’s really about bridging the gap between that caveman diet the way it really was, and the way it helps your body function optimally, and the way people put it into practice. I follow diet logs on all of my clients, all of my patients at Scripps, and I can tell you that even when you’re on that caveman diet, you can make the same mistakes that other people make on other diets,” he said. Clayton pointed out the reason for this is because people gravitate to calorie

dense foods and have evolutionary cravings. At his health club, Clayton oversees his members, while navigating them through food preparation to lower sodium, increase potassium, raise omegas, and boost fiber. And when it comes to portion sizes and calorie restrictions, he said, it doesn’t do much from a health perspective. And workouts are also medically supervised. “A lot of people that I know are scared to push themselves hard in the gym,” he said. “But if you remember from my earlier slides, vigorous exercise is where you get the results. If you want to stay out of a nursing home, if you want to reverse disease, you got to push it hard.” This is why workouts should be done in a controlled environment with a heart rate monitor. With the right supervision, Clayton said, people can build up safely and get the results without breaking the body while making it fun. “When you were working, you had a job and your job was to go pay the bills,” he said. “Now your job is to stay out of a nursing home, and you’ve got to punch the clock for a few hours a day and really put in some elbow grease and do the work.”

I waited anxiously for their return at midnight, secretly hoping they would report that they had a terrific time, but darn, the fish just weren’t biting. No such luck. They have apparently found the spot where all the fish, reportedly dwindling in other parts of the ocean, have gone to hide. It seems they come to dine on nutrients brought in a current from Alaska, yet somehow they can’t resist the fakey lures offered them. Try as I might, I have trouble getting enthusiastic over enormous quantities of any foodstuffs, except perhaps chocolate. My husband loves nothing more than a trip to the big box store where he can score 10-pound cans of sliced olives, four quarts of salad dressing, an industrial drum of mustard and a bag of rice that would sustain several Third World countries for a month. I see only two things when he struggles in with his terrific buys. I see my already limited pantry and refrigerator space vanishing and I see me throwing out lots of mildewed olives, dressing and rice. I also see freezer shelves full of raw fish daring me to hold a cookout for 500. At least they filleted it into tidy squares, but we will never consume it TURN TO SMALL TALK ON 15

SOHO receives substantial bequest By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — For those who knew Rancho Santa Fe resident, Phyllis Paul, her name was synonymous with preservation. Her desire to preserve sites for future generations held a special place in her heart. Her generous bequest of an estimated $750,000 to Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO) remains part of her legacy. “We are deeply gratified by Phyllis’s generosity and vision in providing $750,000 in unrestricted funds for SOHO to continue the important preservation work that she so dedicated herself to,” said Bruce Coons, Executive Director at SOHO. “We intend to honor her trust in us by utilizing these funds thoughtfully and conservatively.” Coons shared that Paul first contacted him to assist her in the acquisition and preservation of the 1836 Osuna Adobe in Rancho Santa Fe. He went on to say that she was responsible in surveying historic homes and commercial buildings in Rancho Santa Fe’s planned civic center. “The survey led to some of the buildings being listed on the National Register of Historic Places and she continued to lead surveys of additional significant buildings and the monitoring of historic properties after she

founded the Historic Preservation Committee of the Rancho Santa Fe Association,” he said. Coons continued, “Surveys like these are one of the greatest tools of preservation, and her doing this has helped Rancho Santa Fe retain its unique identity and tell the narrative of its history in the most tangible way.” Coons wants people to know that if every historic community had a champion like Paul, their job would be quite different. Instead, SOHO could serve the public versus bat-

tling unsuitable developments. Founded in 1969, SOHO takes the reins when threats of demolition of certain sites loom and they remain diligent to preserve open space and cultural landscapes. This nonprofit is considered a historic preservation advocacy organization and it has saved numerous landmarks such as the Hotel Del Coronado, Western Metal at Petco Park, The Santa Fe Depot, Gaslamp and Horton Plaza. “By operating six historic buildings open to the public, and caretaking as many more, we strive to show by example the economic advantages of stewardship in protecting and preserving San Diego’s heritage and how preservation contributes to the health and aesthetic wealth of communities,” Coons said. “We are a resource for owners of historic buildings and homes, and community leaders and concerned citizens can call us when they need help in saving a place that is meaningful and important to their community. Our staff and board of directors are made up of San Diego’s most authoritative architectural historians as well and share that expertise with the public in a number of ways.” For those who never had the pleasure to meet Paul, Coons deTURN TO BEQUEST ON 15

Schlosser honored at annual meeting By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — At the recent Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club Annual Meeting, LaVerne Schlosser was recognized for 37 years of faithful service to the club, which included serving on the board. During the course of the evening, RSF Garden Club executive director, Erin Browne, explained how Schlosser was instrumental in building the relationship they have with Mira Costa College. This has resulted in a scholarship fund with the Mira Costa College Foundation. After Schlosser received a plaque for her dedication, it was announced this scholarship fund will be renamed, “The LaVerne Schlosser Scholarship from the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club.” Also there was the

Children’s author visits RSF Library By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Kids scurried to their hub at the Rancho Santa Fe Library for read-a-long and crafts with children’s author and Rancho Santa Fe resident, Adrienne Falzon. Before reading her book, she engaged the children on what they thought being an author was all about. From there, she segued into reading her second published book, “The Search for the Perfect Shell.” It was Falzon’s way to introduce that “perfection” can be such a misleading term and desire. Falzon said she was delighted to be part of the after school program and enjoyed the myriad of ages she had in her audience. Her story transcends from childhood to adulthood. “What I want the children to walk away with today is that we are perfectly imperfect,” she said. “It’s just so important for everyone to realize that our im-

perfections is what makes us perfect because that’s what we bring to the world because it’s who we are.” The craft for the day was making an oyster with a pearl in the middle. It was made with a Styrofoam ball nestled between two paper plates. Crayons, glue and more created the look. Falzon wanted to produce a craft that was relatable to the book since the idea of an oyster shows the transformation of a piece of dirt into a pearl. Since her book’s publication, Falzon has presented it to various local school and libraries. She said it is an extension from her former career as a teacher. Falzon hopes that her books inspire both children and adults about learning something new. She pointed out that when one benefits from something, in a special way, it can help others. “So writing a book is just one more way of sharing the message,” she said.

Maximizing your Social Security benefits The Social Security Act of 1935 ensured that hard working Americans would have income to support them during retirement. Over time, Social Security may have reduced worries about retirement to the point that many people don’t give their Social Security a second thought. With a little planning, you can receive more in Social Security benefits than expected as well as learn how to leverage other sources of income for retirement.

CCA surf team places first in state championships El Camino’s Crawford back

home and in no hurry to bolt sports talk

By Bianca Kaplanek

CARMEL VALLEY — The Canyon Crest Academy boys surf club took first place in short board in Division 2 of the Scholastic Surf Series High School State Championships. Teams from 40 schools from San Diego to Santa Cruz participated in the three-day event at San Onofre State Beach that began May 16. The win was quite a feat for a team that finished last season 0-5. Making it even more impressive is the fact that half of the six-member squad was competing at the high school level for the first time. “We got a lot out of our freshmen, who had limited experience,” coach Jesse Sinclair said. “That we won with three freshmen is pretty powerful.” Sinclair, in his second year as coach, also credits the success to “a lot of hard work and a lot of involvement.”

“I gave them clear instructions and a game plan and they executed it perfectly,” he said. “I told them to be conservative and focus on wave selection.” A late season winter storm provided a big south swell on Saturday, with some challenging surf in the 5- to 7-foot range. For the short board competition the following day things improved, resulting in 3- to 4-foot clean and glassy conditions. Sinclair, a San Diego native who now lives in Del Mar, said short board is the most coveted and competitive competition in the tournament. This year teams from nine schools participated,

including Carlsbad High, which came in third, and district rivals San Dieguito Academy and Torrey Pines, two of four teams that ended in a fifth-place tie. Jason King, the team captain and a senior at Canyon Crest, said the win is also gratifying because oftentimes the team lacked surfers. “As a team we usually had a limited number of surfers,” he said. “This was a bigger deal because of that. It was refreshing to come back with enough people and a lot of talent.” Jason said the camaraderie between his teammates also contributed to the first-place finish. “It’s huge that the

short boarders all get along really well,” he said. “We communicated, which is vital in team competition. And we all enjoy surfing as a sport and a hobby. So it wasn’t hard to commit to practice.” He said Sinclair is a great coach whose experience in competitive surfing has helped the team. “There’s a lot he can apply to each and every aspect of the sport,” he said. “We really appreciate him organizing team events. He’s a coach and a guide.” Canyon Crest, in a new division this year, finished the regular season 4-1. “We came through,” Jason said. “We hope next year will be the same.”



Nothing says summer like the smoky flavor of foods cooked out on the grill, the bright, warm sunshine, and the nearby buzzzzz of bees. June 21st heralds the beginning of summer as we take to the great outdoors to enjoy our Southern CA lifestyle. Summer also requires a few safety reminders to keep fun at the top of our list. Outdoor activities should always include sunscreen and plenty of water, for young and old alike. Whether at the pool or beach, a cautious eye for safety is a must. Food eaten outdoors should be monitored for temperature - both hot and cold - to prevent food poisoning. Outdoor activities can sometimes include bee stings, snake bites, scrapes, and various “owies,” so be prepared to provide first aide to those in need. Please stay safe while having a “ton of fun” in the good ole summertime!

The Chargers’ Richard Crawford describes his NFL career as a roller-coaster ride. Better buckle-up if wanting to tag along. “I’ve seen the highest of highs and the lowest of lows,’’ said Crawford, a former El Camino High star. Crawford, a cornerback, is going through drills during the team’s offseason workouts. While those with bigger credentials don’t fret their roster spot, Crawford doesn’t have that luxury. Not when battling the likes of Brandon Flowers, Jason Verrett, Steve Williams and others. Does that bother Crawford that his position, and the odds, are stacked against him? Nope. “I just worry about myself,’’ Crawford said. “Santana Moss and DeAngelo Hall taught me that a long time ago: don’t worry about anybody else, just worry about yourself.’’ Crawford mentions Moss and Hall, his ex-Washington teammates. It was with the Redskins that Crawford made his mark and wrecked his knee. “It’s football,’’ he said with a shrug. “You never know what’s going to happen.’’ In 2012 Crawford surprised many by making the Redskins as a seventh-round pick. With his contributions during the season, Crawford was more than an afterthought. He had a 64-yard punt return to help beat the Ravens in overtime. In Week 16, his fumCROP ble recovery iced another .93 win. .93 In Week 17, Crawford recorded his first NFL 4.17 interception off the Cow4.28

boys’ Tony Romo, helping Washington claim a playoff berth. Crawford’s solid rookie season was to be a stepping-stone to year two. Instead, a misstep in the third preseason game of 2013 sent Crawford reeling. He tore three ligaments in his knee and has been clawing his way back since. “It wasn’t really humbling because I was already humble,’’ Crawford said. “But it was a test of my will. How bad did I want to play football and how could I come back from it? It was more mental than physical.’’ And that played to Crawford’s strength. Not many 5-foot-7 players make the NFL and that was Crawford’s listing at El Camino. If you don’t mention him standing on his tiptoes, we won’t either. But countless people told the headstrong Crawford to chase another dream. “I never had any doubts,’’ he said. Just like he never had a growth spurt like his freshman year at Saddleback College — four inches. Take that, you doubters, as the 5-foot-11, 192-pound Crawford eventually transferred to Southern Methodist and then landed in D.C. But he was cut after getting hurt. He returned to Washington’s practice squad, was cut again, and signed late last year with the Chargers. Crawford didn’t see game action, but showed enough in practices that the Chargers coaches have taken a liking to him. “He has a real love for the game,’’ Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. “You love to see a guy like that.’’ Getting noticed — for the right reasons — is Crawford’s goal. If a San Diego spot doesn’t open, then maybe someone else bites. “Of course I want to be here, this is my hometown team,’’ Crawford said. “But you can’t control that. That is not my decision. I worry about what I can control. That’s all I can do.’’ Well, there are other things. Like his mastery TURN TO PARIS ON 15

History and farm-fresh food few of inn’s offerings hit the road e’louise ondash


hat is shakshuka? I haven’t a clue, but it’s on the breakfast menu at Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm and I’m game. Thanks to my cell phone and Google, I learn that shakshuka is a popular Moroccan breakfast dish of poached eggs that float in a spicy tomato sauce, garnished with bacon and feta cheese. And here at Los Poblanos, it is accompanied, much to my delight, by gluten-free cornbread. Who could ask for anything more? Certainly not I. Flash back to yesterday when we arrived … My husband, Jerry, deliberately slows as he drives down the long entry road that runs through the dense arches of cottonwood trees. It doesn’t take long, however, to know that this is where we want to be. Los Poblanos, a boutique hotel and lavender farm, sits within the boundaries of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, a village of almost 7,000 just seven miles from downtown Albuquerque. The inn could be a day away for

all we know. That’s because residents of Los Ranchos, a 4.4-square-mile town sitting just east of the Rio Grande, incorporated in 1958 with the goals of maintaining the area’s rural flavor and creating a unique identity. For those who live in the Albuquerque metro area, Los Poblanos is a place to get away without having to go far. For the rest of us, it’s just a beautiful place to get away. The original boundaries of the ranch once stretched all the way to the crest of the Sandia Mountains, but today, Los Poblanos Inn occupies 25 acres. In the 1930s, the ranch’s first owners hired notable craftsman, professionals and artists to create what we see today. John Gaw Meem, considered New Mexico’s finest 20th-century architect, designed and remodeled the ranch house and the large communal building called La Quinta. Today, La Quinta still serves as a gathering place for social, civic and cultural events. Tinsmith Robert Woodman fashioned the light fixtures illuminating the buildings; ironsmith Walter Gilbert crafted the iron door handles depicting San Ysidro (the patron saint of farmers and laborers); artist Gustave Baumann carved the floral and Native American designs into the oversized pine doors and other designs over the mantle in the formal ballroom; and landscape ar-

chitect Rose Greely designed the formal Spanish-style gardens where visitors can meander or pause to contemplate life and the land. Los Poblanos presents a complete package of history, tranquility, setting, comfort and cuisine. Executive Chef Jonathan Perno, also a farmer, creates the daily breakfast and dinner faire inspired by produce and meat that are available at more than a dozen nearby farms. Fresh farm-to-fork cuisine helped Los Poblanos earn recognition in 2013 from Bon Appétit magazine as one of the 10 best food-lover’s hotels in the country.

Los Poblanos owner Matt Rembe has created a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts; the farm is a poster child for agritourism. Guest houses provide all the modern amenities within a charming, uncluttered environment. The family's other enterprises include wholesale production, retail sales (a gift shop features many items made on the farm), the restaurant and catering and venues for large and small events. After enjoying our Moroccan breakfast, we stroll to the lavender fields, which are warming in the April sun.

One of four peacocks that lives at Los Poblanos and the only all-white one, this bird likes showing off for guests.

The air is comfortably crisp and the Sandia Mountains are dusted with snow from a storm that blew through yesterday. This reminds us that Albuquerque is more than a mile high. Farm workers are arriving and the place is beginning to hum, but at least

one resident is staying lazy. A large, snow-white peacock struts across the bocce ball court, spreading his feathers as if to brag that he, unlike we who are only passing through, does not have to leave — ever. For more information, visit

brush with art t’s no small coincidence that Solana Beach artist Renée Miller’s given name means “reborn.” The 35-year-old painter and art instructor often recreates herself and is now breathing new life into an old structure that she recently renovated and moved to Encinitas. The Solana Beach native has a natural talent for approaching life creativity. While a student at Torrey Pines High School, she participated in the summer program at Laguna College of Art and Design and later spent a semester studying at Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy. After graduating from UC Santa Cruz with a bachelor’s degreee in Fine Art, she returned to Italy to study under American painter Paul Beel, during which time her paintings were exhibited in the Uffizi Center, an extension of the famed Uffizi Gallery of Florence. Miller considers her most significant artistic influence to be mentor Rod Knutson, northern California artist known locally for his paintings in the Pamplemousse Grill near Del Mar’s racetrack. After four years of intensive art study in Italy, Miller returned to the U.S. to further develop her career in New York City. She

ternational juried “San Diego Dreaming” exhibition at Oceanside Museum of Art. Although she had never intended to go into teaching, Miller began working privately with artistically inclined children in a repurposed landscape maintenance shed in Solana Beach. During the past eight years her popularity has grown exponentially as word spreads of Miller’s success with budding young artists. Consistent with her creative approach to life, Miller recognized the untapped potential of a former chicken coop originally constructed in 1950 at Feather Acres Farm and Nursery in Del Mar. Over the course of several months she upgraded the bedraggled structure, transforming it into a fully functional studio and teach-

ing facility where she painted and conducted art classes. When Feather Acres was recently sold, owners of the 60-year-old horse ranch and nursery offered Miller the newly improved building at no cost if she would have it relocated. Miller’s search for an appropriate location ended upon discovering a vacant portion of Sunshine Gardens in Encinitas, which called for something consistent with existing businesses including Organic Hammer, North County Olive Oil Company, Betty’s Pie Whole, and Twigs by Teri. She quickly knew this was the ideal home for the revived Renée Miller Studios. The building was relocated in early June, just in time for Miller to prepare for her summer art camps, scheduled to begin June 22. Each of Miller’s every-other week camps is designed to expand imaginations and learn art techniques with themes such as “Under the Sea” and “Making Magic”. In the rustic Sunshine Gardens environment, students will also spend time with animals while learning about nature, gardening and creativity. Once again Miller is doing what comes naturally — creating something original and valuable where potential was previously unrecognized and unrealized. Renée Miller Studios are located at Sunshine Gardens, 155 Quail Gardens Drive, Encinitas, CA 92024. Visit for more information on Miller’s artwork and summer art camps or to enroll a student.

Parks wants everyone to know that they are trying to get the message across to as many customers as possible. “We are asking that all of our customers sign up for online access to their water usage. “This is the best way our customers can obtain their 2013 water usage and determine what their water allocation will be,” she said. “Finally, it is im-

in bringing back our village,” she said, noting how she loved her Village Market. Connie McNally of McNally Company Antiques, located in the heart of the Village, reminded all of the real estate offices, banks, escrow offices and financial service centers which are both in the Village and bracket by it nearby. “That’s why we have no parking,” she said. “That’s why as the town dwindles so has our business dwindled.” McNally told the board and members that she recently had longstanding clients from Chicago come visit. They stayed at the Inn and walked downtown. “Yesterday when they came in, they said all we saw were pictures of homes in the storefronts,” said McNally, adding how they wanted to know what happened. They also told her that they were thinking of purchasing a home there but are now rethinking that decision. And with the market gone, McNally said, it makes the situation even gloomier.

Restoration Fund at the RSF Foundation, which received $10,000. The funds will support landscaping and educational opportunities for the Juan Osuna adobe property built back in 1831. The recipient of $8,000 was given to the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy in their efforts to build the San Elijo Native Plant Nursery. This project will be supported by community volunteers. Monies will help with the purchase of nursery equipment, educational materials, fencing supplies and more. The Water Conservation Garden encourages and promotes landscaping conservation through a myriad of exhibits and programs received a $5,000 grant.

Up next was resident Wendy Walker. She said a fellow Ranch resident, who she has been working with regarding the market issue, has named it, “Stumpgate.” The crowd broke out in laughter and applause. Walker moved to the Ranch in 1998. If there was no grocery store, she would have moved to La Jolla. “The fact that our community does not know that our market was in jeopardy was a huge wake-up call to all of us. We really thought the Association was watching out for things like this, but now we know that we have to do it ourselves,” she said. Walker continued, “Close your eyes and imagine a charming street with wonderful shops and restaurants and a feeling of community. Even Mayberry had more to offer.” Walker pointed out that she wished they could hire Donald Trump to come in and fix their town. “We want our gas station. We want our market. We want our restaurants. We want our shops,” she said. “And we want the real estate

office to go away so we can enjoy our town.” Simone was next up. He thanked the board for the invitation and hoped to clear up some misperceptions on behalf of himself and Wooley. He addressed the practicality of markets and what type of market the community could sustain. After speaking with multiple markets, Simone believed the market needed to be downsized. “One of the things they tell me is the size of the community can’t sustain the market that’s 10,000 square feet,” he said. Moving forward, Simone said, what they can do is have a smaller market. Resident Saiid Zarrabian told the crowd that the changes that have occurred over the last 20 years have come slowly and a little bit at a time. Right now, he said, is a pivotal change. And members need to work with the Board and not against them so they can keep their market. “I’m incredibly pleased that this is the board sitting in front of us. In my opinion, if anybody can help, this board is not only able, they’re willing to.”

As for the generous bequest, Coons said it will be filtered toward its legal defense fund and historic property restorations. Koons said they currently have two sites in need of major restoration in the backcountry where Paul’s dona-

The latter, near Warner Springs, served as a stage stop and watering hole in the 1850s. “We hope others will pick up Phyllis’s baton as a watchdog and advocate,” he said. “Rancho Santa Fe is an architectural, cultural and historic treasure.”

The shelter will further the college’s goal to be the North San Diego County region for education and resources regarding sustainable gardening. A total of $5,300 was gifted to Solana Ranch Elementary School. While the school currently has 8 raised garden beds, these funds will help upgrade its irrigation system and create a hedge soft barrier to enclose the garden area. Park Dale Lane Elementary School was thankful for their $5,000 in order to expand their current garden to include more garden beds, potted plants, rain gutter gardens and more. Friends of Pacific Rim received $1,090 to help benefit their composting and vermiculture program. Skyline Elementary

School has plans to improve and expand their educational garden program with their grant of $500. The Rancho Santa Fe School District received a total of $3,000 for their gardening program. New materials will help nurture the garden club at the Roger Rowe School. A grant for $900 was given to the Don Diego Scholarship Foundation to help give low-income students the opportunity to take part in the San Diego County Fair. The goal is to sponsor two busses filled with children so they can join in the Plant*Grow*Eat Ag Education Program at the fair. At the end of the grant ceremony, Wasserman reiterated that the grant committee worked diligently in implementing interviews and onsite visits to each one of the organizations. “This is really in concert with our objective as an organization,” he said. “So we’re really delighted that we can do this.”

deas for columns come to me in many ways and this one was one I will remember. I was hosting a celebration of life party at my house in Leucadia for a deceased friend. The par together old ty brought friends and our house band from back in the day called The Citrus Revolution. One of their signature songs was called Get Juiced and it just so happens that Kaz and Jacqueline Murphy, who own Fully Loaded Juicery, are also neighbors of mine. They heard the music of Citrus playing and were drawn over to the house where they enjoyed a couple sets of music with us. Conversation followed and here we are. I’ve become a huge fan of their cold-pressed juices and wanted to learn more about them and Fully Loaded. I spoke with Kaz Murphy all about the juicery.

How did Fully Loaded come to be? Many years back the opportunity arose for me to be a life coach for people with Parkinson’s and paranoid schizophrenics. I would be in out of hospitals with these folks and couldn’t believe the unhealthy food and beverages that they would be served. Being avid juicers since the mid-‘80s, Jacque and I started making recipes for my clients and we found them to be helpful on many levels. About four years ago, TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON 18

very year I anticipate the blowout show in San Diego produced by Wine Warehouse, an international wine beer and spirits powerhouse distributor that draws hundreds of brands together for an annual product showing. Heck, they even represent sodas, ciders and teas! Many of the owners of West Coast wineries attend this show, allowing access to tell their stories and pour their wines. This is the main reason I go. My readers get some valuable information from many of the owners. Mark Donati was there from Donati Family Vineyards in Paso Robles — also from Paso,

Gary Eberle of Eberle Winery, one of the first to make wine in this prime wine country. Dan Lee from Morgan in Monterey, who you have learned about in my column, was there with his Morgan Winery; and all the way from Tenuta di Castellaro in Italy, Giovanni Pasquero traded comments on his Tuscan wines. Other names to know included: Far Niente Estates, Heitz Cellars and Flora Springs in Napa Valley, Fess Parker Winery from Santa Barbara, L’Ecole fromWashington, Peachy Canyon from Paso Robles and Pedroncelli and Trentadue of Sonoma. All were pouring their current releases; some premiered new brands and vintages. You may wonder, at these mammoth wine tastings, how to stay sober and maintain a fresh palate.

and what other differentiators are there at Fully Loaded? Our juice is coldpressed. When you cold press, the temperature of the produce stays cool so that the enzymes and nutrients stay intact. Our juice machine has 21,000 pounds of hydraulic pressure and after pressing, the pulp is almost as dry as sawdust. We get every possible bit of value out of that pulp. We get three to four pounds of produce in a 16-ounce bottle and there is no pulp in the juice so that the juice absorbs through your stomach lining rather than taking a longer time to go through your entire digestive tract. That way, the valuable health benefits get into your blood stream quicker while everything is still alive and active, and is therefore the healthiest way to drink juice. The juice recipes are literally fully loaded with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and enzymes. We work closely with local farmers so that some days the produce is picked in the field that morning and in our juice by noon.


we bought a Norwalk coldpressed juice machine and that changed everything. Our friends started to tell us that our recipes not only made them feel amazing, but that they were delicious, so we decided to try them out at the Leucadia Farmers Market. Before long we couldn’t produce enough juice in one day to last through one farmers market. That’s when we decided to open up a shop and here we are. What exactly is a micro-juicery? We call it a micro-juicery, because like a true microbrewery, you can only get that particular recipe in our shop. You can’t go to Jimbo’s or Seaside and find it. You will never find our juices on store shelves because we will never pasteurize or HPP and that is the only legal way to get your juice on a store shelf. Our juice has a three- to four-day shelf life. How does your process of juicing differ from others

What are some of your favorites? At Fully Loaded we usually have between 22 and25 recipes at all times. We are seasonal so that four times a year we take a few recipes off the menu and add a few new ones using produce that is in season. Some of my favorites in the green world of juice are Green Mountain, which features dandelion greens and fennel; Shangri La, which infuses grapefruit and pear in a luscious green mixture; and our signature recipe, the Fully Loaded featuring carrots, E-3 Live (blue/green algae from Klamath Lake Oregon) and just a touch of cayenne in a classic green recipe.

The live auction was the culmination of the several-months-long annual Encinitas Arts Alive art banner project, which is hosted by the 101 Artists’ Colony, Cardiff 101 Main Street Association and the Leucadia 101 Main Street Association. Close to 100 artists participated in this year’s project. The banners were unveiled in February and then placed on lampposts all along the Coast Highway 101.
