RSF Tennis Club honored by USPTA By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club has a great deal to be delighted about these days. As their membership numbers are growing by leaps and bounds, they were just honored by the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) San Diego Division as the “2014 Outstanding Facility of The Year.” It’s a great testament to a facility celebrating its 50th anniversary. This news has created quite a stir in the Ranch and its surrounding communities. President of the tennis club, Dave

Van Den Berg, believes this recognition means a tremendous deal. “There are only 17 divisions of the United States Professional Tennis Association and we are in one of those districts,” he said. Van Den Berg continues, “So if you take the United States and you divide it up 17 different ways and to have that honor given to us is just fantastic.” Van Den Berg said he attributes this recognition to the USPTA tournaments that it hosts. He also pointed out they have one of the best junior programs in the world right there in Rancho Santa Fe. “I mean take a look out there,”

said Van Den Berg, eyeing the clubhouse large window with an unobstructed view of players on the tennis courts. “You’ll see some of the top players in their age groups in the world playing right in front of you.” Van Den Berg boasted that they players which are ranked in the top five in the world. He also wanted people to know that their very own Derek Miller, the director of tennis, is considered to be one of the top tennis players in San Diego and top junior coaches in the world. “Derek is fantastic,” he said.

Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club decides to invest By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The recent sale of the Garden Club property prompted discussion at a recent board meeting regarding the direction it would take with the funds. The property was sold for more than $2.8 million. Part of its decision was to partner with the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation. “The Board of Directors unanimously voted to invest $3 million in a Non-Endowment Non-Profit Account with the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation,” said Erin Browne, Executive Di-

The

rector of the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club. “Investing in this type of fund will allow the assets to remain under the control of the Garden Club to be used for scholarships and grants to organizations as approved by the Garden Club Board of Directors.” According to Christy Wilson of the RSF Foundation, their organization has had a longstanding and beneficial relationship for more than three decades. “We are proud to have been selected to manage the fund that will result from the sale of the club.

This will enable the Garden Club to continue to make significant and regular grants to nonprofits which focus on horticulture and conservation for many years to come,” Wilson said. Browne wants people to know that investment performance reports clearly indicate that the Foundation has steadily outpaced comparable foundations over the past 10 years. This includes the 2007-08 period, she said, when market returns were particularly weak. “We are confident this relationship will create a

positive impact on the organizations that benefit from the Garden Club grants and scholarships and the Rancho Santa Fe community as a whole,” Browne said.

RANCHO SANTA FE — The energy was electrifying as the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus motored to the R. Roger Rowe School in Rancho Santa Fe. It provided participants with a sense of inspiration. R. Roger Rowe Middle School Principal, Garrett Corduan, said it was a day to give kids an opportunity to discover music or their musical talent. “What I saw today was great,” Corduan said. “The kids were encouraged to pick an instrument, play it, and the gentlemen that came along with the John Lennon Bus were right there by their side showing the kids how to makes sounds and music.” Corduan said the best part was watching how the children were immersed in a newfound interest. According to Corduan, approximately 100 students participated throughout the day that had permission slips for the event. “In their interest form for the event, they wrote paragraphs as to why they would like to be selected when the group comes back to be part of a recording session,” he said.

Superintendent, parents meet on foreign language program By Christina Macone-Greene ing how years ago they

RANCHO SANTA FE — A wave of foreign language interest has created a surge at the Rancho Santa Fe School District for grades kindergarten through Five. While much has been said during the course of past board meetings, Superintendent Lindy Delaney felt there should be a different type of platform to address this situation. The meeting was held in the Performing Arts Center at the campus. Numerous parents were in attendance as well as school board members Tyler Seltzer, Marti Ritto and Todd Buchner. Delaney began say-

Consistently, she started to hear that students were not retaining the language. “They would come in the next year and they were having to start pretty much back at ground zero. There wasn’t a lot of carryover, and it just didn’t feel like it was working,” Delaney said. “So at that time I put out a parent surTURN TO LANGUAGE ON 18

Art auction benefiting Alzheimer’s Association draws closer By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — While art auctions attract an array of enthusiasts, knowing that any proceeds filter in a direction to support a cause makes the event even more special. On March 6, at the Fairbanks Country Club, the Alzheimer’s Association San Diego Chapter is championing its 18th annual Memories in the Making Art Auction starting at 6:30 p.m. “We are proud to have the participation and support of some truly incredible San Diego artists, including Rock and Roll enthusiast, Patrick Carney, award-winning water colorist, Mark Sherman, accomplished oil painter, Natalie Sabin Gore, the wife of San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore,” said Jamie Hagan, communications manager at the Alzheimer’s Association. “We will also feature

some nontraditional pairings including a delectable Hershey Kiss sculpture by Jean Wells Hamerslag, and three beautiful blow glass pieces by Jennifer Brennan and Kathleen Mitchell.” Hagan said what makes this event so unique are the award-winning local artists, friends of the Association and individuals touched by Alzheimer’s disease. And the backdrop of the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club makes it a perfect venue. “Proceeds of the event will go to support programs and services for the more than 60,000 San Diegans and their families battling this devastating disease, as well as advance critical research for a cure,” she said. While the evening will be brimming with artistic expression, Hagan wants people to know that a silent auction of lovely artwork created by those with Alz-

There will be “evening pairing” and “experience pairing.” For example, Hagan said, Mark Sherman’s lighthouse pairing will be auctioned off with a Zolna Yacht Sunset Cruise for 12 on San Diego Bay. Realizing the effort it takes to put on an event of this magnitude, Hagan wanted to acknowledge its generous founding chair, Darlene Shiley.

RANCHO SANTA FE — While fraud, scams and identity theft continues to rise, the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center wanted its residents to be empowered by learning more about these threats. A recent visit from Gary Rivers, Crime Prevention Specialist from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, explained to the attendees how people can protect themselves against all types of fraud. Terrie Litwin, executive director at the RSF Senior Center introduced Rivers. “Scam artists are getting smarter and smarter on how they go about attracting their victims,” she said. “I know Gary’s got the right information and we really appreciate him being here.” Rivers agreed with Litwin. Fraudulent people are becoming more ingenious as far the different ways they are arriving at new scams. Rivers, a former San Diego Police Officer who retired from the force after 29 years, was delighted to educate people on how they can protect themselves. The senior community is particularly at risk with certain scams, he said. Rivers explained there are indeed senior scams which play into the fears of how some seniors may be forgetful and more trusting. According to Rivers’ statistics, seniors who lost $20,000 or more in financial exploitation went on to lose an average of $2,000 a year to other scams over the next five years. Met Life is calling elder financial abuse as the “Crime of the 21st Century.” Rivers went on to say that was once thought to cost the elderly $2.9 billion, True Link Financial found that it’s costing the elderly 12 times that estimate to a tune of about $36 billion.

“So it’s, a growing thing,” he said. “The losses are significant with not only actual dollars, but people have lost their homes, their dignity and their cherished independence.” While the senior population represents 12 percent of the nation, he said, they account for 35% of fraud victims. And if that weren’t enough, Rivers pointed out that telemarketers make up for $40 billion of the $100 billion total annual lost by consumer fraud. One way they are filtering out seniors is by opening the digital or paper white pages and finding names of people who were born in the 1940s and 1950s. Examples of these names would be Dorothy, Abigail, Stella, Florence and many more. “So they’re getting kind of really sly as far as what they’re looking for when they pick out their victims,” he said. Rivers named the top scam signs which include the following: the offer is too good to be true; scammers request for private information such as social security numbers and credit card numbers and codes; grammatical errors in letters and emails for new opportunities; request for fees

if someone has incurred winnings; suspicious email domain; no physical property address on a correspondence; and, pressuring people to commit. “Make sure that the business that you’re dealing with is a legitimate business,” he said. “And no legitimate lottery or sweepstakes is ever going to ask for money upfront.” Another thing to be cautious about is someone wanting access to an individual’s computer. Rivers said people who do this, are able to delve into a person’s system and collect all types of personal information, including banking, passwords and so on. Rivers also touched upon the “emergency distress call” scam. He explained this is when grandparents may get a call from a person posing as their grandchild who tells them they are in jail or in a foreign country and need money wired to them immediately. Callers who think a relative is on the other end need bail money totaling around $2,000. “When you get a call like this, and you’re on the phone with them, you need to ask yourself, ‘Does this sound like your grandchild?’” he told the crowd. Although the caller will plead not to have the grandparent call the parents or other family members, ignore that request, hang up, and call others for verification. “The other thing is these scammers will say they’ve been involved in an accident and need money for that,” he said, adding how callers will say they don’t sound like themselves because they have been injured. While scammers are redefining more underhanded tactics to draw people in, Rivers had an important piece of advice to share: “Just say no.”

Community Commentary Referendum against statewide plastic bag ban should incentivize mayor, council to move on local law Clean water advocates say it’s less costly for taxpayers to address the plastic bag pollution at its source By Matt O’Malley

Star power still a political factor California Focus By Thomas D. Elias Condoleeza Rice, the former secretary of state in the George W. Bush administration and now a Stanford University professor, has stated very clearly she would rather attend college basketball games and help choose the college football playoff teams than be a U.S. senator. At 61, she says she prefers a secure job in academe, playing the piano in her spare time, mentoring students and then considering an executive-level job if the Republicans take back the White House. She probably would also rather not face the inevitable questions a campaign would bring about her role in government deceptions that led to this country’s long and costly war in Iraq. “A campaign for the Senate is out of the question,” Rice has said. She’s done nothing counter to that statement, not raising money, not speechifying or anything else, keeping a low profile in general even as others visibly line up to run for the seat Democrat Barbara Boxer will vacate next year. And yet, the latest Field Poll shows Rice leading the senatorial field, including Democrats and Republicans, Latinos and Anglos and African-Americans. This is remarkable in California, a state that hasn’t voted Republican in a presidential or Senate election since 1988 and one where Democratic voter registration runs 15 percent ahead of the GOP’s. What does it mean? Maybe that voters are not yet paying much attention, despite the highly publicized machinations of figures like state Attorney General Kamala Harris, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and numerous members of Congress from Orange County’s Loretta Sanchez to John Garamendi of Mokelumne Hill in Calaveras County. Some survey respondents told Field Poll director Mark DiCamillo they’re not

yet ready for political action. “It’s just too far away,” said one. “I am waiting for more information to come out.” But Rice’s standing three points ahead of current Democratic front-runner Harris probably also indicates the same thing that Arnold Schwarzenegger demonstrated 12 years ago when he dominated the recall election that ousted then-Gov. Gray Davis: Politics in California has never been only about party. It’s always also been governed by personalities, and stars from other fields can translate that into political success. R e p u b l i c a n Schwarzenegger won the recall and later was easily

given to aphorisms about how his family has lived the American Dream, draws just a 20 percent level of voters “inclined to support” him. Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin, who ran unsuccessfully for state controller last year, and former state GOP chairmen Tom del Beccarro and Duf Sundheim have similar levels of support. Almost every Democrat in the potential field does much better, with Sanchez and fellow Congress members Garamendi, Jackie Speier, Xavier Becerra and Adam Schiff all drawing support in the 29 to 39 percent range, well above the mine-run Republicans but far behind

Republican Schwarzenegger won the recall and later was easily reelected not because he’s a distinguished politician or statewman, but because of his repute as a muscleman actor reelected not because he’s a distinguished politician or statesman, but because of his repute as a muscleman actor. Similarly, when the great semanticist S.I. Hayakawa won election to the Senate, it was because of the television exposure he got while countering massive student protests as president of San Francisco State University. Onetime soft-shoe dancer and actor George Murphy, also won a Senate seat as a Republican because of his prior reputation. And John Tunney later won that same seat mostly because his father was a heavyweight boxing champion. A quick look at how the only Republicans avowedly considering a run for Boxer’s seat fare in the Field survey also demonstrates that a lack of star power can be fatal when your party is in the minority. San Diego County Assemblyman Rocky Chavez,

Rice. It all goes to show that while the Republican label has been thoroughly tarnished in California and the GOP has done little to shake off the anti-Latino reputation it got from Gov. Pete Wilson’s all-out support for the ill-fated anti-illegal immigrant 1994 Proposition 187, individual Republicans can still do well. Which means there’s still potential for a healthy two-party system in this state. To make that real, though, the GOP must recruit charismatic candidates with star power – like Condoleeza Rice.

sure vote on California’s law banning plastic shopping bags. Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill in September 2014, making California the first U.S. state to officially prohibit stores from handing them out for free. “It’s not surprising that after spending more than $3.2 million, 98 percent of which is from out of state, the plastic bag industry has bought its way onto the California ballot to protect its profits,” said Mark Murray of Californians vs. Big Plastic, the coalition of local officials and environmental, labor, and business groups supporting the state’s plastic bag ban. “Every poll shows that Californians strongly support the law…. We are confident that Californians will protect a law that is already in place in 138 communities and that will save marine wildlife, reduce litter and save taxpayers millions of dollars,” he added. According to data from San Diego County beach cleanups in 2014, plastics account for 46 percent of debris collected. A d d i t i o n a l l y, a new study this month from the journal Science, quantifies, for the first time, the amount of plastic going into the ocean from land — estimated between 5 million and 14 million tons globally per year. Sadly, says O’Malley, this statewide effort funded by out-of-state special interest groups echoes disparaging local trends in which industry lobbyists have pumped millions of dollars into campaigns to railroad the political process. For more information, visit CAvsBigPlastic.com.

San Diego Coastkeeper, which protects fishable, swimmable and drinkable waters, says San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and the City Council should respond with immediate local action in light of today’s news of the certification of a referendum against a statewide plastic bag ban. If passed, the city of San Diego’s local bag ban would cut down on plastic waste that finds its way into the region’s waters, and the city would become the county’s third to ban plastic bags following action by Solana Beach in 2012 and Encinitas in 2014. In addition to the human health and environmental benefits associated with preventing plastic pollution in San Diego’s waters, says Coastkeeper, it will save taxpayers money. The watchdog organization expects a statewide trash policy to take effect in San Diego within the year. Once passed by the California State Water Resources Control Board (expected in April), this policy will mandate municipalities to prevent trash from entering our waters. “We know it will cost San Diegans even more money to clean up the plastic bags once they’re in the environment. Mayor Faulconer and city council should use this opportunity to demonstrate leadership on the local plastic ban bag now so that we can address the source of the plastic pollution, saving money when Founded in 1995, San Diego Coastkeeper the state requires us to remove it from protects the region’s bays, beaches, waterthe environment,” said Matt O’Malley, sheds and ocean for the people and wildlife Waterkeeper for San Diego Coastkeeper. that depend on them.

Orthodontist offers improved options for creating a beautiful smile ENCINITAS — When you think of orthodontics, do you think of a mouth full of painful metal braces? Dr. Terrie Yoshikane of Yoshikane Orthodontics wants to assure you that there is a better way. Recent advancements are making orthodontics appealing to patients of all ages. “Orthodontics is not just for kids,” Dr. Yoshikane said. “It doesn’t have to hurt, and you don’t need to have metal in your mouth.” “In most instances, we can use Invisalign to get the same results as braces,” she said. “We can

correct the bite and create big, beautiful smiles with less pressure than traditional braces.” Dr. Yoshikane is the first — and only — orthodontist to reach the Invisalign “top 1 percent” in San Diego County, a distinction given only to the top 100 orthodontists in the nation. Another option for discreet tooth alignment is Damon Clear Braces. “They allow the teeth to move freely and with little discomfort,” Dr. Yoshikane said. Not only are metal braces a thing of the past, so are the molds made of goopy material that went in your mouth. “We use the Itero intraoral scanner to make a digital 3-D model on the computer instead,” Dr. Yoshikane said. “And, we use digital x-rays taken in-house to reduce the exposure to our patients.” Dr. Yoshikane is also excited about a new device called Acceledent. “It is FDA-cleared and helps your teeth move 30 percent to 50 percent faster,” she said. “With it, our patients notice very little discomfort during their treatment.” “We are most excited about the combination of Invisalign and Acceledent to help patients achieve the smiles they desire — no metal, less discomfort and less time to finish.” The patients’ overall satisfaction is the goal for the team at Yoshikane Orthodontics. “We work hard to give our patients the most gentle treatment options and individualized care possible,” Dr. Yoshikane said.

She currently serves on the board for the American Association of Orthodontists Foundation. The special care she gives to the patients at her practice extends to her charitable efforts. “I have been the orthodontist for Fresh Start Surgical Gifts for more than 15 years,” Dr. Yoshikane said. “We donate our time and services to care for cleft palate and other surgical patients.” Dr. Yoshikane has a deep sense of community and loves practicing in Encinitas. “The people in Encinitas and North County are so health conscious and family and community oriented,” she said. “We have been lucky to be part of this community for more than 25 years and have been proud to give back by sponsoring the local schools, sports teams and participating in the annual Switchfoot Bro-Am events.” Yoshikane Orthodontics is located at 477 N.

Nonprofit launches art contest By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Art for Barks, a nonprofit based in Rancho Santa Fe and founded by Lynn Moon, recently unveiled a contest called, Service Dog Fine Art Contest. An incredibly unique concept, but those who know Moon realize how she persistently reaches for the stars. “Art for Barks was created to support animal rescue and service dog charities and improve daily pet care. We wanted to focus on several animal subjects that we felt needed larger attention,” she said. “We found that the public was well informed about animal abandonment and highly engaged in rescue animal activities. While people were very supportive of Service Dogs, they lacked understanding of the profound contributions by these silent heroes.” Last year, Art for Barks championed the Service Dog Hero Contest, which was highly received. Individuals were educated by the remarkable work Service Dogs perform each and every day. Moon wanted to shine a brighter spotlight. “To provide further recognition, Art for Barks is now establishing the nations’ first collection of Service Dog Fine Art,” she said, adding how the medium will begin with painting and evolve into other categories. For Moon, she believes that quality animal fine art has a special way of engaging the public and promoting dialogue. “Once again we are using a contest to educate about Service Dog Fine Art and consequently attract a larger audience of pet lovers,” Moon said. The advent of social media has enabled progressive organizations, such as Art for Barks, to have a contest built upon a social media platform. Those who take part in the voting process, Moon said, will learn stories about Service Dogs. Some of these animals were given a second chance at life after being rescued

and completed a Service Dog training program. Among the array of talented artists taking part in the Service Dog Fine Art Contest is Ally Benbrook, a watercolor artist. Like the others, she works hard to show the relationship between dogs and people in her pieces. Back in the 1990s, Benbrook witnessed her first Service Dog in action. The dog was helping an equestrian with paralysis. Her Service Dog was trained to pick up the lead rope of the horse, bring the horse to her, and pick up grooming brushes if she dropped them. “I mean the dog was trained to do all kinds of things involving the horse,” she said. When Benbrook learned about Moon’s contest she thought it was an outstanding idea. It was a way to promote how wonderful these dogs are at the task at hand. Benbrook also believes this contest will change the way people perceive the art world since most pet art is not particularly viewed as fine art on a regular basis. “I think this contest is a way of uplifting the artist, the art form, the subject matter, and helps everybody,” she said.

Say you saw it in The Rancho Santa Fe News

In the same vein, Moon wants people to know that she hopes Art for Barks elevates the popularity of animal art in the United States. According to Moon, due to the lack of art training in schools, many Americans feel intimidated about art. “We believe that the instinctive attraction of humans for animals is so strong, that animal art is the perfect place to educate about fine art principals,” Moon said. “A quality animal art image entertains, nurtures the soul, and expands the human-animal bond. Brain science has shown us that a cherished animal art picture penetrates deep into the human brain and creates a long-lasting positive experience.” The Service Dog Fine Artist Contest ends May 30.

cannot tell you how excited I am at the latest news to come to me via email. Never mind that it might be poppycock. I am behind this research 100 percent and am ready to volunteer as a test subject. The word is that there is new research on treating disease with sugar. All I can say is “Serve it up, please!” According to the e-mail I received, a local research group is following up results they had from treating a rare genetic disorder with a simple sugar. But can it be possible that it may lead to sugar becoming a health food? I am a huge fan of all modern medical progress, but I have to say, this one really speaks to me. Apparently, “clinical researchers are investigating treating diseases such as multiple sclerosis, allergies, and even cancer with sugar.” They even had a scientific symposium to discuss it. I’ll bet that symposium dinner had the best dessert cart ever. If this stuff pans out, I envision a glorious future where my pharmacy coverage includes See’s stores

and several local bakeries. Perhaps a candy bar a day will keep the doctor away. Feed a cold with pie? Root beer floats for a fever? Take two bites and call me in the morning? This is the news I have been waiting for my entire, over-sugared life. Oh, wait. I am reasonably healthy, but if sugar cures what ails you, I would never have been sick a day in my life, and both my father and grandmother would still be alive and noshing. With my luck, the healthy sugar probably won’t work when paired with chocolate or you won’t be able to take your medicine orally, but instead need tasteless, painful injections. La-la-la-la. I am not lis-

tening. I will stay glued to the newsfeed waiting for that major breakthrough. Those of us with a killer sweet tooth and no real regard for our health (or teeth) deserve a break today. You just know there will be a run on it all when the results are finally published, so I am wasting no time stocking my shelves with all the disease-fighting goodies I love most. If it doesn’t pan out, I’ll have a sweet fallback for that impending earthquake. I’ll see you in the candy aisle. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who’s been known to eat dessert first.

The latest and greatest gadgets for travelers

e’louise ondash I’m always amazed at the ingenuity of inventors, especially when it comes to creating products that are not only useful but travel well or enhance the travel experience. Here are some items that do both:

NEET CABLE KEEPERS

No one travels without their techie stuff or the problems they cause — like cord confusion. How to keep them from getting tangled and twisted? Try NEET Cable Keepers, little bright and colorful “sweaters” for phone, computer and other cords, complete with a zipper. Keeps carry-ons, laptop bags and backpacks organized and clutter-free. The fabric shell protects cables from frays and ripping - ear buds and headphone cords, too. Available in 10 colors and three sizes. $12-$30. NEETproducts.com.

CARDIFF TRAVEL HEADREST

For kids in cars: The Cardiff Travel Headrest, invented by San Marcos residents and brothers-in-law Will Regan and Jason Arriola, is the answer to “noodleneck,” which occurs when a napping kid’s head falls over as the car makes a turn or stop. The padded headrest, which features a removable sleeve for easy cleaning, keeps kids upright and asleep. Bonus: it flips up for storage. Also fits adults. $49.99. cardiffproducts.com.

STM BAGS FOR TABLES

Can’t leave home without your tablet? Then check out the STM bags for tablets of all sizes. I especially love the shoulder bag for the 10-inch tablet (which fits with or without a cover) because it has other pockets for phone, pens, a little makeup, charging cable, and ID and credit cards. Great protection while going through airport security. Features water-resistant fabric and removable, adjustable, padded shoulder strap. From $43. Available on Amazon. stmbags.com.

PHONE SOAP

Problem: According to research, cell phones are more germ-laden that many everyday objects, including the bathroom throne. Solution: PhoneSoap. It’s actually a box that baths cell phones in ultraviolet light for five minutes. (You get a simultaneous charge and also can still hear signals and alarms.) Watch the amusing/informative video about PhoneSoap at www.phonesoap.com. $59.95. Also available: PhoneSoap Polish (a stick) for compact travel.

STWRAPS

For fun and functionality: Stwraps (pronounced “straps”) are clip-on buttons that wrap around any strap and allow you to identify baggage and carry-ons quickly, as well as proclaim allegiance to favorite teams. Great for those ubiquitous black bags. Stwrap is officially licensed by the NCAA, MLB, MLS, NASCAR, NBA, NCAA, NHL, NFL and Players. Most are 1 inch to 1.5 inches wide. $4.99 each. Visit stwrap.com/

BUCKLE MATE

If you struggle with the buckling up kids in the car, MyBuckleMate ends the clumsy task. The device keeps the clasp-end of the seatbelt upright and easily accessible, fits in tight spaces and between booster seats, and allows seats to fold down without removing it. Comes in gray, tan, black and beige. $13.99. www.mybucklemate. com.

BOTTLE BRIGHT TABLETS We all carry eco-friendly, reusable water bottles, but it’s not so easy to clean them. Bottle Bright tablets take care of stains, built-up gunk and odors from hard-to-reach areas. The product was created by another set of brothersin-law who had one too many dirty hydration packs and saw too many water bottles on the trail. Also good for cleaning travel mugs, drink dispensers and other containers. Certified by the Natural Products Association. Ten tablets for $5.99. cleanethics.com.

CONVERTIBLE STRETCHY SKIRT Ladies under a certain age will find this clothing item fashionable, transportable, convenient and comfy. The convertible, stretchy skirt from Skirt-The-Issue was born from the need for a quick change after a workout without really changing. The form-fitting fabric provides a multitude of stylish possibilities and can be tucked into a backpack, purse or glove compartment. The design ensures that it's never inside out or upside down. Can double as a scarf or top. Comes in many colors and patterns. $30. skirt-the-issue.com/.

Sports Shields doing more than pitching in Peoria

sports talk jay paris Matt Kemp cleared his throat and everyone beat a path to his locker. The Padres’ new slugger was arranging his camp gear at Peoria. But first came banter with the media, and one guy going rogue. “Hey Matt, what kind of year do you think you’ll have?’’ he said, thrusting his recorder over the scrum. His mug with the beard and voice were familiar. But what outlet is he with again? Kemp smiled and laughed and so did teammate James Shields. Shields exited but not before revealing what makes him special. The Padres’ fresh ace isn’t wasting time working the room, building connections and forming a bond that he hopes last, well, until October. It was a Padres team built on the fly by general manager A.J. Presser and now we’ll see if it sticks. “We got a long way to go here in spring training,’’ said Shields, a Rancho Santa Fe resident. “But I like our

team and the moves A.J. did this offseason. It’s going to be a good squad, I think.’’ Not much to ponder, is there? The outfield was reworked with Justin Upton, Wil Myers and Kemp. Plus there’s catcher Derek Norris, an all-star last year. Shields leads a staff which already showed two pitchers, Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross, that could lead a rotation. “The one thing we do have is pitching depth,’’ said Shields, who was 14-8 with a 3.21 ERA last year. “You can never have too much. I don’t remember one season I played in where all five of the starters pitched the whole entire season, so you got to have pitching depth. I’m excited to see what we have.’’ So let’s get these pesky spring drills done and it’s straight to the Fall Classic, right? The Padres are spouting all the right things after management did all the right things. But that, and $3, will get you a pricey cup of Joe. “It doesn’t matter if a team says they’re all in or not,’’ Shields said. “I’m all in every year and guys are saying that here.’’ Talk is one thing, but Shields, in his short exposure to his teammates, is encouraged. “We got guys that are hungry, that want to win and are working real hard to get there,’’ he said. “But we’ll see how it goes, how spring training goes and building some chemistry here.’’ This chemistry doesn’t require beakers and white lab coats. Few athletes spend more time together than baseball players — 162 games in 181

days and that doesn’t include six weeks of spring tune-ups. Shields believes how well a team performs on the field is related to how it gets along off it. “Everybody has their own opinion,’’ said Shields, an eight-year pro whose been in two World Series. “I think any baseball player of any kind, or someone who has been a baseball player, knows that chemistry is a big intangible.’’ It seems money can’t buy you love, friendship or pennants. “You can have the biggest payroll in the world and it doesn’t matter,’’ Shields stressed. “I remember when the Yankees had a $200-million payroll and we had a $40-million payroll in Tampa and we went to playoffs and they didn’t.’’ The Padres long for the postseason. But just because Preller went all swap-meet crazy during the winter guarantees absolutely nothing. Shields said there’s more to it than assembling players with impressive resumes. “I think chemistry has a lot to do with it,’’ he said. “Obviously you have to have talent, no doubt about that. But you have to click together and play as a team.’’ While the season is a grind, don’t forget to grin. “Since we grew up playing baseball in Little League it was all about having fun,’’ Shields said. “And that is what we’re going to have to do this year.’’ It’s a season that can’t start soon enough. But this spring Shields is bent on building camaraderie as much as arm strength. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com. Follow him on Twitter at jparis_sports and at mighty1090.com.

Speed at the forefront of 2nd annual Encinitas Mile By Tony Cagala

ENCINITAS — The Encinitas Mile is back — all 5,280 feet of it — for the second year in a row. And the sight of running feet covering that mile might look even faster this year when they hit Vulcan Avenue March 15. With an upped prize purse of $2,000, race co-founders Dan Seidel and Mark Sarno are looking draw a faster field of elite racers. This year’s race will feature the first sub-four minute runner in John Simons of North Carolina, who’s personal best time is three minutes 59 seconds. “The elite fields, on both the men’s and the women’s side, will be faster,” Seidel said. Encinitas resident Gina Merchant will be running in the women’s elite bracket again this year. Admitting she’s not a professional runner, Merchant said the whole point of running against them is to compete. “You’re in this race with these people who are really fast and so I’m hoping to drop a good 10 seconds off my time last year just based on the field being really competitive,” she said. Merchant finished last year’s mile with a time five minutes and 13 seconds. What race organizers are hoping to see at the race this year is a mile done in 4 minutes and 10 seconds or quicker. “It’s always important for elite runners to know that there’s going to be a fast time and a chance to

compete against fast runners. Last year, the race was won in 4:20, and that was fantastic, but we think, because of the course, we can make it quicker,” said Seidel. Elite racers are exciting to watch because they can inspire everybody to see what’s possible with commitment and training, he said. About 500 runners are expected in the seven heats of the race, and as last year, spectators will be able to watch most of the race unfold start to finish, seeing some excellent runners and a chance to cheer on friends and family, Seidel added. “As a community of runners, we don’t have opportunities to race a mile distance on the road, which is what makes it so exciting,” Merchant said. The nonprofit Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, which helps to provide reconstruc-

tive surgery to children with deformities, will receive a portion of the proceeds from the race. The race will also serve as the 2015 USATF San Diego Road Mile Championship. Steve Scott, a former record holder of the fastest mile, and current track coach at Cal State San Marcos will be back as a guest of the event. Part of the goal of the race is to continue the call of bringing back the mile, a nationwide movement to keep the mile distance in the culture of American running. The movement is gaining steam around the country, Seidel said. “It’s a distance that is at once challenging and doable,” he said. Register online at encinitasmile.com until March 14. Registration will also be available the day of the race.

the head. “It was very life-changing,” he added. “I knew I had to start over. Be careful what you ask for.” Boyd moved to Nashville, where his career continued to have ups and downs. At one point he was a staff writer for a record company. He also formed a band but the group fell apart in the midst of recording. “So I went out on the road to hone my skills as a front man,” Boyd said. In 2010 he released the single “I Ain’t No Quitter” and was about to sign with a record label. “But everything was pulled out from under me again,” he said. “While the single was out I came off a

radio tour and the funding was pulled from the label. I went in and they were literally moving desks out of the office. “I had adversity to overcome over and over again,” he added. “At that point I had to reinvent myself again.”

Boyd was ready to give up on his career when he received an email from the casting director of “The Voice” in October 2013. “I replied, ‘This is a joke, right?’” he said. “But they were serious.” He auditioned the following February. Boyd describes his time on “The Voice” as an amazing learning experience. “I felt like I was broken,” he said. “My confidence level was low. I was very unsure of myself as an artist.” He said fellow country music artist Blake Shelton taught him to trust his “gut instincts,” while Gwen Stefani helped him realize his music was not a niche market. “She told me I could be a global performer,” he said. “She really inspired me and helped make my TURN TO VOICE ON 18

SOLANA BEACH — When the season seven winner of TV’s “The Voice” learned how the Belly Up got its name, it confirmed to him that the Solana Beach tavern was the perfect venue for his first California appearance. “It’s very fitting. He wasn’t a quitter either,” Craig Wayne Boyd said, referring to Dave Hodges, who in 1974 used the phrase for his new nightclub after his friends called him a fool and said that was the direction his business was headed. Boyd has displayed similar tenacity throughout his career — or better yet, his life, which reads like the lyrics of a country music song. Born and raised in Mesquite, Texas, Boyd comes from a musical family and started playing the mandolin at age 4. “I played bluegrass at the local barber shop with my dad on Saturdays,” he said. “My mom was a Pentecostal church-going mom who sang gospel music. I was very confused as a kid, but that’s what makes my country music what it is.” Boyd, 34, was kick starting his career when he first visited Nashville in 2004 for the country music festival and realized he needed a presence there to get ahead. “On my way back I looked in the sky and said, ‘If I’m supposed to be there you’ve got to help me do this,’” he said. “When I got home, my wife had left me while I was gone.

Wine of the Month San Diego’s own fine wine festival By Frank Mangio

PONZI PINOT NOIR TAVOLA OREGON – 2012 About the Wine: Warm aromas of ripe plum, tobacco and cayenne frame the final floral notes of violet and dried rose petals, with cherry and raspberry at the core. The flavors float easily into the long, expressive finish. After a cool and challenging 2010 and 2011, this vintage, 2012 was a welcome sight. A long, warm, dry summer with cool nights brought out the full flavor of the Willamette Valley of Oregon. About the Winery: Dick and Nancy Ponzi founded their vineyard in the Willamette Valley of Oregon in the 1960s with the spirit of adventure and a passion for making world-class Pinot Noir. They realized that the northern part of the valley was ideal for cool climate, French Burgundy-style Pinot Noir. The original methods and style of winemaking are still practiced today under the family’s second generation, with winemaker and daughter Luisa Ponzi. The Cost: The Ponzi 2112 Pinot Noir Tavola (the Italian word for table) is available for $19 at Costco.

looked at him quizzically, not really accepting if the concept of “just wine” would go over for an event of the size he was hoping for. That was two years ago, and I had just met David Fraschetti for the first time when he laid out his concept of this wine only for his inaugural Vin Diego. “No, we are not letting in beer, no spirits, no fizzy pop.” OK, I said to myself, this guy I can get close to. He’s all wine! That’s how

Join the party at a Sushi Smackdown

T

he sushi experience can be quite visual and festive, with sushi chefs working their magic, often with plenty of flair. Gino Mazziani has taken the sushi experience to the next level with his Sushi Smackdown events. These are part culinary event part party and I caught up with Gino recently to learn more.

How did this concept originate? I was working for Bridgegate Films as VP of TV development and was on the set of a show being filmed in Las Vegas and the director and I went to a sushi restaurant for lunch. As we were talking about the industry in general, I asked the director if he had ever seen a show about sushi.

Light

bulbs in my head lit up and I left the set the next day. The initial concept was restaurants competing in their city for the best sushi restaurant title. It started out good but soon we realized the restaurants don't like to be known as second best. The crowd loved the format of tasting the restaurant's best, but we overfilled the restaurants and put too much pressure on the restaurants, which resulted in slow service. I realized we were on to something good but we had to make some changes to keep both the restaurants and our fans happy. We limited our crowd per restaurant to 48 local sushi fans per restaurant at one time.

This gave the restaurants the opportunity to deliver good service and create new customers. Fans love it because they get to try the restaurant's best 17 dishes in a social and fun environment. Sushi Smackdown is definitely not a quiet dinner for two. It is a sushi party where everyone participates in the rating of the restaurant's best and has some fun making new friends. How exactly does a Sushi Smackdown work, walk me through an event. First you go to our site (sush ismac kdow n.com) . Pick your city and restaurant. Each restaurant offers multiple dates and times.

A true European style market

Del Rayo Village Center 16079 San Dieguito Rd. Rancho Santa Fe • 619-743-4263 Sundays, 9:30am –2:00pm ranchosantafefarmersmarket.com

Choose your date and time and reserve your event. The events normally start at 7 p.m. so we ask our fans to arrive 15 minutes early for seating. We would like to start the show right about 7:10 p.m. because it is a 2hour to 2 1/2 hour event. Since it is a social event, we put all the tables together or at least create table of eight so everyone gets to meet new friends. We welcome the crowd and explain the event. The restaurant serves the crowd 17 of its most popular appetizers, rolls, sushi, desserts and more. Everyone has a rating sheet with what the restaurant will be serving on it. As each dish comes out, the fans taste each one and rate the dish one to five stars. In between the service, we have our famous sake bomb contests. We take four ladies for the first round, then four guys, and finally the winners go faceto-face, guys versus girls. The winner gets tickets to the next sushi smackdown. I have never seen a crowd get into a competition like they do with our sake bomb contests. It is fun and it creates a great vibe with our crowd. As we come to the end of the event, two chefs will compete for the crowds vote by making their best dish not on the menu. Once the crowd votes for the winning chef, the chefs come out to greet the crowd. Finally the fans have dessert and we say goodbye. You have an impressive list of venues participating, can you list some of them and were they immediately receptive to the concept? Currently in San Diego we have Sabuku, Carlsbad we have Nozomi, Escondido we have Sushi Yama, and Del Mar we have Tabu. The restaurants have all been very successful so far.

Carole Jayne Stewart July 23, 1933 – February 20, 2015

Carole Stewart died peacefully of natural causes in Carlsbad, Ca. Born in Bemidji, Minnesota, to Herbert and Edith Larson, Carole developed an early interest in performing arts. By age seven, she was singing on the radio in Fargo, North Dakota (WDAY) with her sister Patty as “the Layne Sisters.” During WWII the duo toured the country in Pullman rail cars, promoting War Bonds. In 1945, the Larson family moved to California, where the Layne Sisters had the privilege of working with celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Eddie Cantor and Van Johnson. The girls made various recordings and performed for thousands of people. Carole was a 1951 graduate of Leuzinger High School in Hawthorne, Ca. After high school she began a real estate career in Manhattan Beach, where she Nicholas Anthony Arcidiacono Carlsbad April 5, 1982 - Feb. 16, 2015 Ruth Elizabeth Fly, 87 Carlsbad Dec. 30, 1927 - Jan. 22, 2015 Clyde “Ted” Reinert, 75 Oceanside Nov. 30, 1939 - Jan. 24, 2015 Theresa Kathryn McCready, 67 Encinitas Feb. 4, 1947 - Jan. 23, 2015

lived for 15 years, and was involved in community affairs, serving as president of the Dolphins Club (a women’s charity organization) and the PTA. In 1974, Carole moved to Carlsbad. She continued to work in residential and commercial real estate, buying many properties including Carlsbad’s Surf Motel, the Royal Palms (now Carlsbad Inn) and the 17-acre Thunderbird Ranch. She continued to perform with various dance and song groups and encouraged her children and grandchildren to pursue the family’s passion for music. Over the last 18 years another passion of Carole’s was helping other women through Alcoholics Anonymous. She mentored many, and her own success through the program was a testament to its ability to transform human lives. Carole was preceded in death by her parents, Herbert and Edith Larson; siblings Mavis, Ramon, and Patricia; and husbands Walter Lee Cooksey (in 1956) and John Gregory Stewart (in 2002). She is survived by her brother, Gerald; her four sons, Randall, Reed, John, and Dana Stewart; nine grandchildren, five great grandchildren, and countless friends.

 Check and replace the batteries in your

smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms AND check the AGE of the alarms. The U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission suggests replacing any smoke alarms older than ten years and CO alarms older than five years since their sensors degrade and lose effectiveness over time.  Prepare a disaster supply kit for your home (water, food, flashlights, batteries, blankets, medications). Once you have created your home disaster kit, use the semi-annual time change to check its contents.  Check for hazardous materials in your home and outbuilding storage areas. Properly discard any which are outdated, no longer used, or in poor condition. Move any within reach of children or pets to a safer location.  Check and discard expired medications those dates really DO have meaning - some very common over-the-counter medications can cause serious problems due to change through aging.

TENNIS CLUB

Den Berg enjoys the additional energy at the club. And it’s growing every day. Over the last few months, membership has increased by 100+ members. The level of enthusiasm has breathed new life into the tennis club. According to Van Den Berg, the club is getting calls from people excited to learn that there is a possibility of joining and that’s been one of the most distinctive changes, too. “We’re here for the benefit of the people of the covenant,” he said. “So everything we make through that comes back to the members.” And this also includes their new monthly social events for members. In his late-30s, Van Den Berg became a tennis player enthusiast. What drew him to the game was the competitive aspect of it. The game also helped

him stay in good physical condition. “It took me years to figure out that most all of my friends were made through tennis because it’s a tremendously social game,” he said, adding it was a great way to meet people. Van Den Berg said he also has a passion for tennis because of what it has added to his life and that of his family. And as for the Rancho Santa Fe Tennis Club, it’s a hub not only for tennis, but a social destination, too. It’s starting to be recognized as a focal point in the community. “You can just come and sit down and watch some of the best young players in the world,” he said, adding how the weather affords year-round playing. “Stop by and visit this beautiful facility because we are in one of the nicest places in the world.”

It’s not your grandmother’s country music anymore, but I have a little bit of that flavor.” Boyd said his life has changed completely since he was named the winner in

December. He’s currently opening for Rascal Flatts in Las Vegas. When that ends in midMarch he’ll be touring until early October. “I can’t go to Taco Bell to eat in peace anymore,” he said. But Boyd isn’t complaining. He said he was very excited when he was asked to perform at the Belly Up March 9. “It’ll be my first time going to San Diego, so I’m really looking forward to it,” he said.

“And I have him in charge of our school program, too. We have 55 to 60 kids every day that come from the Rancho Santa Fe Middle School.” The program, Van Den Berg mentioned started a couple years ago with 10 children. Its popularity has grown rapidly. He also mentioned how the school district’s superintendent Lindy Delaney has been a tremendous supporter of the tennis program. The club has transformed over the last few years. At one time it was considered to be exclusive, Van Den Berg said. “We’ve changed it into, what I call, a vibrant, fun place to be and much more family oriented,” he said.

vey because I was actually trying to figure out as a new superintendent what our parent community valued as an elective.” At that time, students were focusing on art, music, computers and Spanish. Roughly, when she added up that time, Delaney discovered that students were spending about 20 percent of their week in non-academic settings. “At the same time, our test scores were not what I had hoped they would be,” she said. “So we revamped the schedule.” In this survey, science came out as the number one choice of interest for parents, art was second, music was third, and Spanish was down at the bottom. According to Delaney, they removed Spanish because it didn’t stick. While foreign language hasn’t been completely off the radar, she said, they’ve been trying to figure out how they could fit it into the

Is there a variety of sushi served at these, nigiri, sashimi, rolls or does it tend to be one type of presentation? We like to see a variety of food with each restaurant. Each restaurant will serve three or four appetizers, four or five sashimi and nigiri, five or six rolls, a couple of surprise dishes not on the menu and a couple of deserts. The surprise dishes are normally two chefs competing for the crowd’s vote who is the better chef. They

MARCH 6, 2015 schedule. Then Delaney turned to the parents who each had a turn to speak. Many desired to have foreign language in K through 5, while a handful of parents expressed their shock when they discovered that there was no foreign language when they enrolled their child. They had automatically assumed it would have been part of the curriculum. A few parents expressed the desire to have a committee do the footwork on how a foreign language program could be implemented at the elementary school level. Many of the parents agreed that they didn’t expect their children to be fluent in a foreign language. What was important to them was the “exposure.” Chair of the Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation, Alexia Bregman, was in favor of foreign language. She said the ideas that some parents were presenting was probably workable. “We should obviously start working towards that,”

she said, adding how moving forward to this goal should be a culmination of the administration, Education Foundation and parents. For Bregman, it was important to work together and see how it could be funded to determine if there was any feasibility to this. Delaney said she appreciated everyone’s candor and interest because they were all there for the same reason. At this point in time, Delaney felt a parent survey would probably be the next step. For the upcoming board meeting agenda, she was going to present two professional companies who do school surveys. Delaney wanted the group to know that what she was probably going to do was contact a couple parents who attended the meeting to ask for input on the survey. Delaney also appreciated the idea of a foreign language committee. “I do want to get some parent input before we go out on the survey and would like to start working on that with the parents,” she said.

selected to participate in a music video, which highlights their school. The bus is equipped with a state-of-the-art sound studio and more. Corduan was impressed with the bus and the people who worked there.

“The amount of technology in that bus, whether it is just the recording component or the video component was all high definition and all super high quality,” he said. Through this John Lennon foundation, a legacy continues to help and inspire children. And the kids had an opportunity to learn about

Lennon and The Beatles. “In the presentation, they were telling the children that John Lennon just wasn’t just a musician. He was a poet, an artist and a photographer,” he said. Brian Vincik, a parent whose child attends the school, was thrilled to have the bus there since it brought so many different com ponents. On a whole, he believed the bus afforded a sense of imagination to the kids. While the children receive traditional exposure in the classroom and extra activities, the mere presence of the bus gave them additional insight. The bus had multiple levels of musical themes. “There’s engineering, production, and it gives the kids a behind the scenes look,” Vincik said. “Right now a lot of kids turn on the radio and hear something but they may not have the appreciation of how it’s made.” The bus gave them that refreshed point of view. Vincik spent a great deal of time on the bus throughout the day and was delighted to see the reaction from the children. As a parent, he appreciates when his child is exposed to several things and looks for that one moment realizing that something clicked. “And this bus is part of that journey. I guarantee you there’s going to be one child in here that’s going to be inspired by this and it will hopefully change their life,” said Vincik, adding how the buses are worldwide and make a positive impact to children everywhere.

Rowe robotics teams make a showing RANCHO SANTA FE — On Feb. 21, three teams from the R. Roger Rowe Middle School successfully competed against a field of 36 teams at a regional championship held at Canyon Crest Academy. Throughout the day, the RSF Portal Pounders team (Katherine Arnold, Tyler Bovenzi, Grayson Hudgens, DJ Nelson, Gabrielle Nguyen and Brandon Wong) remained undefeated going into the final alliance rounds. During the alliance rounds, the RSF Portal Pounders chose its fellow school teammates, the RSF Intergalactic Dragons (James Busby, Conrad Delgado, Aaron Lustig, Lucas Luwa and Justine Yu), as one of its alliance partners. The alliance won its initial matches and moved on to play against the top-seeded team for the championship. Robot malfunctions during the final rounds cost the alliance the championship, and placed them in second. This allotted them one of only four spots given to move on to the Super Western Regionals. The RSF Portal Pounders will be competing in the Super Western Regional Championship in Oakland March 27 through March 29 against 13 other Western states. The school’s third team, the RSF Intercontinental Ballistic Ninjas (Erika Adams,
