Rancho Santa Fe golf course switches to recycled water By Aaron Burgin

RANCHO SANTA FE — To keep the fairways and greens at The Farms Golf Course perfectly manicured, course personnel would irrigate the course with enough drinking water to satisfy about 500 families’ water needs for a year. The effects of using that much

water toward landscaping, as opposed to families’ drinking needs, is exacerbated during a drought like the one currently facing California, one of the most severe on record. On April 30, the Olivenhain Municipal Water District and officials with The Farms course celebrated the end of the use of potable water at the

90-acre course and the decision to “go purple” — or use recycled water — for the course’s irrigation needs. The timing, officials said, could not be better, as it comes on the heels of Gov. Jerry Brown mandating that water agencies cut water use by 25 TURN TO WATER ON 22

RSF Association agrees on traffic signals By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Following an April Town Hall Meeting at the Garden Club, the RSF Association board of directors voted to install traffic signals rather than roundabouts on May 7. The Town Hall meeting helped the board make their decision, since mem-

bers discussed roundabouts or traffic signals options for three proposed intersections along the Paseo Delicias/Del Dios corridors. Association Manager Bill Overton said during the Town Hall meeting that members expressed both pros and cons about traffic signals and roundabouts.

An unofficial straw poll at the conclusion of the gathering revealed 120 in favor of traffic signals, 11 in favor of roundabouts and 37 who wanted to do nothing. “Something needs to be done with traffic control for the community based on complaints and the rising number of cars passing

through Rancho Santa Fe,” said Overton, adding that he was advised a 2013 meeting revealed around the same percentages. Overton advised the board that staff thought it was time to make a vote. “Staff’s recommendaTURN TO TRAFFIC ON 22

RANCHO SANTA FE — In an effort to raise awareness to the Rancho Santa Fe Association and its fellow members, Neighbors for San Dieguito River Valley Preservation, a group of residents opposed to a potential high-density housing development, offered a presentation at the May 7 Association board meeting. The group voiced concern over Rancho Librado, a potential high-density residential project that would see new housing built next to Chino Farms. The four-parcel, 28acre property located at the intersection of Via de la Valle and Calzada Del Bosque is currently zoned as semi-rural 2c, also referred to as SR-2. The San Diego County General Plan 2020 mandates one housing unit per 2, 4, or 8 acres. Saiid Zarrabian spoke on behalf of the Neighbors for San Dieguito River Valley Preservation. He told everyone that Rancho Librado has been worrisome to residents in San Dieguito River Valley. Currently, this area and its surrounding neigh-

ting on 3 to 20 acres. Zarrabian wanted members to know that the proposed applicant may want to try and amend this zoning in order to construct 54 homes and possible clubhouse. Current zoning, however, allows for a fraction of this. “It’s a high-density change that is out of character with the area and with the zoning. And it’s a zoning change that could set a dangerous precedence,” he said. Zarrabian’s speech with slide presentation triggered a unanimous vote among the directors of the Rancho Santa Fe Association. The directors voted 7-0 to uphold the General Plan zoning as well as the decision to craft a letter to the County of San Diego Planning Department, indicating their support in upholding the rural zoning for this area. Presented at the board meeting were 450 signatures, which were collected over the duration of a few days from those that opposed the high-density TURN TO NEIGHBORHOOD ON 22

NCTD enforcing trespassing on railroad tracks By Bianca Kaplanek

REGION — Law enforcement officers from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department recently began stepping up enforcement efforts for trespassing on North County railroad tracks. Since January officers have been writing tickets to anyone up and down the coast who crosses the tracks or is walking or jogging alongside them. But the violations aren’t coming without warnings. More than a year ago North County Transit District installed several signs beside the tracks informing people it is dangerous and illegal to walk on the rail line. “No Trespassing” has been stenciled on the sides of the tracks. Fliers were given to anyone walking, jogging or crossing where those movements aren’t permitted. The effort started as part of a pilot program in Del Mar that would eventually be used to develop a larger safety campaign focused on NCTD’s approximately 80 miles of track. Ticketing was sup-

posed to begin about 12 months ago but NCTD opted to continue outreach and education for another eight or nine months. Del Mar was selected because of its many hot spots, or areas where trespassers are often observed, according to NCTD officials. They say Del Mar is an area of concern for engineers because there is a high volume of trespassing there. It is likely a problem area because there is only one legal crossing in the city, on Coast Boulevard in between Powerhouse Community Center and Seagrove Park. Anyone wanting to surf or get to the beach at the south end of the city must walk about a mile to 15th Street to hit the sand without breaking the law. In the past eight years there have been nearly 10 serious or fatal incidents in Del Mar in which there was a collision with a person or vehicle, according to NCTD statistics. It may not seem like an extraordinary number of accidents. “One is too

many,” Jaime Becerra, NCTD’s chief of transit enforcement, said. Surfers and others who enjoy walking or running alongside the tracks say accidents can be prevented with common sense and moving when trains are passing. “These are trains traveling better than 75 mph in some locations,” Becerra said. “People don’t always have time to get out of the

way. “There have been too many tragedies in the right of way,” he added. “We are trying to protect people, our passengers and our property. We don’t want anyone to get hurt and we don’t want any of our equipment to have to go into an emergency stop. It’s mostly about preserving life.” On April 29 Del Mar resident David Meza was walking along the bluffs, as

he has done for 20 years, he said, when he saw an officer ticketing a woman. “I thought she had done something wrong,” he said. “Then he approached me and asked me if I knew I was doing something wrong. I told him no and he reached for his ticket book.” Meza received a citation to appear in Vista Court for what he said was “walking on the California beach.”

“I asked him, ‘How about giving me a warning?’ and he said, ‘No,’” Meza said. Meza said he was not the only person ticketed that day. He said two sheriffs “threatened to arrest a Del Mar woman, who was just walking her dog, and this caused a crowd of onlookers. A nice couple from out of town were also given notices.” The right of way extends 20 to 25 feet from either side of the tracks. Anyone crossing the tracks or walking between them and the posted signs is trespassing and should expect to be ticketed. Meza said he received a flier last year and is aware of the signs. “They say no trespassing and have a logo with someone crossing the tracks,” he said. “I thought that was illegal, not walking beside them. Other people I’ve talked to think the same thing. “I understand the danger of the trains but they can’t build a tunnel or a bridge, so there’s no other way to get close to the beach,” Meza added.

Palma de la Reina breaks ground in Ranch By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The construction of a new commercial site in Rancho Santa Fe has officially begun. Motorists can get a glimpse traveling on Via de la Valle, near the entrance of Morgan Run Resort and Golf Club at Cancha de Golf. For the developer, Newport Pacific, Inc. based in San Diego, this site was ideal in serving the residents of the Ranch, Whispering Palms and nearby coastal towns. It’s slated for completion at the end of the year. According to Richard Cavanaugh, president of Newport Pacific Inc., Palma de la Reina is a high-quality office, retail, and residential development located in Rancho Santa Fe. The stats include 21,050 square feet of Class A office in tandem with 10,360

square feet of high-end retail space. “Palma de la Reina will also feature 54, two-bedroom/two-bath luxury residential suites with upgraded amenities throughout. The residential suites will be available for lease by the end of the year,” he said. “This marks the first new commercial center construction in Rancho Santa Fe in the last ten years.” Cavanaugh pointed out that Newport Pacific has owned this parcel of land for more than 50 years, beginning when they developed the adjacent Whispering Palms community. “This is the last undeveloped commercial parcel in Rancho Santa Fe,” he said, adding how Palma de la Reina was part of the original vision for Whispering Palms. The mission for this site, Cavanaugh said, was

to bring together local professional services, boutique retail, specialty medical office, and services that would be specialized to serve the local community. “There is no other product of this quality and level offered in the Rancho Santa Fe area,” he said. Cavanaugh wants people to know that they have begun pre-leasing the project and are in negotiations with some high-profile tenants who are represented by Lee & Associates. During the construction phase, the developers are driven to attract high caliber tenants. Scott Danshaw, senior associate at Lee & Associates, is also the lead office broker for Palma de la Reina said the site is already garnering attention. “We have already received interest from many localized professional firms,

specialty medical offices, beauty and boutique retail, and Fortune 500 companies who are looking to locate their businesses in the Rancho Santa Fe area,” he said. Another lead retail broker for Palma de la Reina, Steve Willmore, who is also vice president at Lee & Associates, said there is a certain prestige with locating one’s business in Rancho Santa Fe. He went on to say that many of these prospective tenants are looking for new construction located in the area in an effort to better serve their clients, patients, and customers who live nearby. “We envision Palma de la Reina as a destination location whose tenants serve the local and surrounding communities, where businesses thrive, and our residential tenants love where they live,” Cavanaugh said.

RANCHO SANTA FE — A recent Santa Fe Irrigation District board workshop attracted high attendance numbers. While staff made recommendations to the board, a May 21 vote will be the determining factor on any future water cutbacks. According to Jessica Parks, public information officer for the Santa Fe Irrigation District, the board workshop was an opportunity for staff to present recommendations on water allocations, penalties and drought rates. “We were given from the state a mandate to reduce our total usage by 36 percent and we have to be in compliance by June 1,” she said. “So we had a consultant take a look at how we would be able to achieve a 36 percent cutback.” The analysis determined the amount of cutbacks for particular customer classes because not everyone could cut back 36 percent. Parks said when looking at the water usage in its service area, they have mostly single-family residences. Over 80 percent of its customer base is single-family residences, which include homes in Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe and Fairbanks Ranch. “When looking at an allocation methodology, we looked at giving everybody a base allotment. So everyone in our service area, that’s a single family residence, would get 15 units for two months, and that would be for indoor usage

as far as health and safety and everything else,” she said. Parks continued, “What we’re asking for as a 45 percent cutback is everything above the 15 units.” Parks also wants people to know that this allotment will be based on the customers’ 2013 usage. For example based on the workshop recommendations, Parks pointed out if a resident used 20 units within a two-month period, the District would allow the 15 units, but it’s the five units above that which need to be cut back 45 percent. “The state is telling us we have to cut back 36 percent. If we don’t comply, we’ll be fined $10,000 a day,” Parks said. Staff thought the allocation methodology would be a way to help customers stay aligned with the cutbacks. The proposed policy was to allow customers to have 15 units for indoors, but any water usage above that would be deemed as irrigation or nonessential use. “To be in compliance with that, if a customer goes over their allocated amount, there will be a hefty penalty charge so it’s going to hit people’s pocketbooks if they don’t comply with this allocation methodology,” she said. The board will make a decision on staff recommendations at its May 21 meeting. For more information on where the meeting will take place visit or call (858) 756-2424.

Putting out tobacco, e-cigarette sales to youth By Dana Stevens

Broad new vaccination law is a must California Focus By Thomas D. Elias arely has a new law been so urR gently and obviously need-

ed as the broad children’s vaccination requirement now being carried by the state Legislature’s only medical doctor, Democratic state Sen. Richard Pan of Sacramento. While the measure has encountered resistance in the Legislature and even death threats to Pan, there is no factual basis for that vehement opposition, while increasing numbers of young parents are creating demand for it. One is Madeleine Kauffman (a fictitious name for a real person), mother of four and herself a doctor. She spoke the other day in San Francisco about why this tough law is needed. “Normally, I would take all my kids back East to visit my parents over Spring Break,” she said during a dinner party. “But my youngest is just 2 months old and with the measles outbreak, I couldn’t see doing that. So I’m here.” She is not alone. Many conversations with young mothers confirm a widespread fear, thousands of infants now being kept in homes all around California and not taken out because of concerns over the dozens of measles cases that broke out when the illness spread from one unvaccinated child at Disneyland. “There is strong evidence that lower vaccination rates are the reason for outbreaks of measles this year and for outbreaks of pertussis (whopping cough) in 2010 and 2013,” said Pan, a practicing pediatrician. He’s not backing down in the face of the death threats. While an assembly-

man in 2012, Pan sponsored another bill aiming to make it harder for parents to evade getting their children vaccinated before enrolling them in public schools. Each parent declining vaccination, that law says, must present written evidence of speaking with a health professional before declining vaccinations for a child. But when Gov. Jerry Brown signed that bill, he attached a message asking state officials to create a new form allowing parents to check off a box saying — without any proof — that vaccinations run contrary to their religious belief. Never mind that no organized religion disapproves vaccinations, which have all but ended onetime scourges like measles, mumps, rubella and polio. No link between that form and lower vaccination rates — surveys have found as many as 38 percent of children are unvaccinated in some nursery schools in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area — has yet been firmly established. And Pan reports that under his previous bill, the non-vaccination rate has dropped 20 percent statewide. But the outbreaks make it clear that more is needed, and Pan’s new law — backed by the California State PTA — would remove all exemptions from vaccination for public school children other than medical necessity. Children with problems like allergies or immune suppression would remain exempt under this new proposed law, known as SB 277. For sure, anti-vaxxers declaiming their right to freedom are in fact denying liberty to many thousands of children either too young or too allergic to be vaccinated. “This may be a sen-

sitive issue for some,” said state PTA president Colleen A.R. You. “However…the vaccines in use today are extremely safe and effective.” Pan notes that even his new law is not a universal requirement for vaccination. “But if you don’t vaccinate your child, you must take responsibility,” he said in an interview. “If you’re not getting your kids vaccinated, you can still home school them, but you won’t be putting them in with kids that are not getting vaccinated due to genuine medical necessity.” Pan says one reason for resistance to vaccination is that many parents have never seen the diseases involved and so don’t consider them deadly. “Also,” he said, “there’s misinformation that hypes discredited myths about things like a link between vaccination and autism. The only study that claimed this turned out to involve just 12 children and its methodology was extremely flawed. That idea is just plain wrong and invalid.” Pan doesn’t worry that Brown might veto his new bill, which would eliminate the governor’s “check this box” exemption allowing lazy parents to lie about religious beliefs. “I’m sure I will sit down and talk with the governor about this,” he said. “We will work with him.” The bottom line is that recent medical history demonstrates few new laws have ever been more needed than this one. Brown rarely reveals in advance how he will act on any bill, but it would be a dangerous travesty if he didn’t sign this bill and reverse his earlier miscue.

A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the percentage of teens using e-cigarettes tripled from 2013 to 2014. While that is a staggering statistic, it also begs an even bigger question: how are teens getting them in the first place? It turns out it might not be as difficult as it may seem. Access to e-cigarettes ranges anywhere from local gas stations to online stores, and North County San Diego is not immune to seeing a high number of outlets. A recent survey conducted by the Vista Community Clinic Tobacco Control Program observed 136 Escondido businesses selling e-cigarettes and tobacco products. Among them, 65 percent sold at least one type of e-cigarette. While tobacco shops and liquor stores topped the list of type of business selling e-cigarettes, gas stations (91 percent) and convenience stores (73 percent) were not far behind. In addition, e-cigarettes are not limited to

being sold behind the counter. Nearly 25 percent of observed Escondido retailers placed e-cigarettes on the check-out counter, and an additional 6 percent also placed the products on the sales floor or by soda, slushies or candy. Although California is one of 42 states that prohibit the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, easy access remains a major problem. The CDC reports about two million teens nationwide used e-cigarettes in 2014, including 13.4 percent of high school students and 3.9 percent of middle school kids. According to the Center for Tobacco Policy and Organizing, 34,000 youth start smoking in California each year, and many communities have taken initiative to combat this growing issue. To do so, more than 100 cities and counties in California have adopted a local tobacco retail licensing (TRL) ordinance. Currently, El Cajon, Solana Beach, the City of San Diego and Vista have a TRL ordinance in place. Under a local TRL ordinance, the city or county

government requires all businesses that sell tobacco products to obtain a license from the government in exchange for the privilege of selling these products to consumers — and doing so responsibly. This includes checking for proper, valid identification and posting age-of-sale warning signs. Obtaining a TRL also requires retailers to pay a permit fee to the city. Revenues generated from these licensing fees are dedicated to law enforcement programs that focus on protecting youth from illegal tobacco sales through regular compliance checks and monitoring activities. Of course, not all local tobacco retailers illegally sell e-cigarettes or tobacco products to minors, but a TRL ordinance requires all retailers to act responsibly and levels the playing field for all retailers. A survey of 31 municipalities conducted by The Center for Tobacco Policy and Organizing found that local tobacco retailer licensing is extremeTURN TO COMMENTARY ON 22

Letters to the Editor Ticket on the tracks I had a very upsetting experience on my normal daily walk/run along the bluffs in Del Mar. I have done this trail over the last 20 years, as have thousands of other beach lovers. I am sure I have logged thousands of miles running there and never had any sort of issue with the Sheriff’s department. Until I was issued a notice to appear at the Vista court — for walking on the California beach? I never crossed the train track, there is a beautiful trail / path the runs alongside the tracks. Yes there are no trespassing signs throughout but I always thought the intent was for no crossing the track. I was not the only person ticketed, the two Sher-


iffs threatened to arrest a Del Mar woman, who was just walking her dog, and this caused a crowd of onlookers; a nice couple from out of town were also given notices. I still have a beautiful news article written by the U-T several years ago, in the sports page, describing the trail as they called it “the Sacred Trail” At all west facing dead-end streets where they are perpendicular with the track, there are no sighs saying “no beach access.” At either end of this path, there is no specific sign saying the trail is closed. If any Del Mar resident wants to walk to the beach, they will now have to cross the tracks by the powerhouse park or opposite end south near Torrey

Pines. I completely understand the danger near any train, but handing out court dates, does not solve this, nor is it a proper method to notify the public of the closure.

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Country Friends hosted its annual Spring Membership Luncheon which was punctuated by a best-selling author as guest speaker, savories, boutique shopping, and announcement for the nonprofit’s goals and updates. The Country Friends’ new president, Deborah Cross, addressed the attendees at the Del Mar Hilton on May 6. Intended for those who were prospective members, she shared a bit about the nonprofit. “For those of you not familiar with us, the Country Friends is a nonprofit organization founded in 1954 by a group of charitable women to provide needed funding for San Diego based charities. Just as it was in 1954, the need is still great in San Diego County with over 15 percent of our residents living below the poverty level,” she said. Cross wanted all to know that over the years, the nonprofit has grown and now they have more than 2,000 individuals who volunteer their time and service to support the Country Friends through membership, sponsorship or attendance at its events. And its Board of Directors consists of 28 members. “For the first time in the history of The Country Friends, we have three men serving on the board,” Cross said. Cross went on to talk

Dana Law recounts hiking the Pacific Crest Trail By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Library kept its doors open after hours so guests could hear the 12 year adventure of Dana Law hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). For the last dozen years, Law has hiked 29 sections of the trail which equates to 2,476 miles. Law, a San Diegan in his 50s, began his hiking in San Diego. This August, Law is scheduled to tackle the last section, located at Stevens Pass. Section 30 stretches 193 miles and will take roughly 10 days for Law to hike. When finished, he will be at the Canadian Border and plans to meet his wife and family at Manning Park. Law brought his PCT journeys to life with photos, Hiker Dana Law recounts his experiences hiking the Pacific Crest Trail video footage, and interest- over a period of 12 years. Photo by Christina Macone-Greene ing anecdotes. “I’m not a true hiker,” he said, noting how he hasn’t missed a step over the last 12 years. “I was late to the game.” Law describes the PCT as a national scenic trail. After hiking 29 sections, Law has only been lost twice and it lasted for less than an hour. “I just went down the wrong fork,” he said. “And truth be told, the first time

it happened I was walking with a friend who was a hiker with me for a couple of sections and we saw a pretty girl at the trail fork, and without thinking, we went left instead of right. “If a guy sees a lady, we lose our intelligence by 50 percent.” Law went on to say that water is the most precious resource on the trail. Over the years, GPS tracking systems for the PCT have grown incredi-

bly helpful for hikers. Law wanted everyone to know that despite the GPS, he has an old-fashioned compass on hand just in case the digital tool fails. One of Law’s favorite parts of the PCT is in Warner Springs, where large California oak trees blanket the trail. Once a year, Law hikes the PCT. But in in reality, he trains for it year round. This includes aerobics, lifting weights, sprinting, pushups, pull-ups and more. “The idea is to have total body fitness and core fitness to be prepared for the trail,” he said. Before stepping out on the PCT, Law reviews every segment of his trip ahead of time from bow to stern. He studies his handbook, notes, and mapping information about the trail. Another thing Law takes seriously while out on the trail is nutritious food. He tries to get as much quality food as possible. He consumes beef jerky, packaged salmon, kale chips, macadamia nuts grown in Fallbrook, and olive oil. “At night, I do have my tortellini dinner,” he said, adding how he his new stove boils the water quickly. Law began his PCT hiking escapades with a good friend. But sadly, his traveling partner succumbed to cancer and since that time, Law has decided to finish it solo. While hiking over 2,000 miles, he’s had a lot of time to think. “The truth is I have great faith in humanity and I am positive about the future,” he said. “If you go on the trail, you’ll meet wonderful people of all ages, all backgrounds, and all races, who share a common adventure and joy.”

RANCHO SANTA FE — What a difference a few months make. The Rancho Santa Fe Farmers Market has transformed into a day rife with high quality foods and a destination to relax and enjoy Sundays. Its new owners, Diane Haworth and Michael Varbaek, continue in their diligence and reap the rewards of thankful visitors. Haworth and Varbaek have a colorful background as longevity researchers and documentary filmmakers. For five years, the couple traveled around the world and studied the life habits of people in villages where there was a high concentration of longevity. Their goal was discovering what enabled these folks to live longer. Haworth said the concept of the Farmers Market was a place where they could bring together many of the elements that enable people to live long and vibrant lives. Principles of longevity can be found at the market, Varbaek said. And this includes nutrition, movement, community, and relaxation. “And one of those that we feel is really overlooked in Western culture is the importance of the piazza or town square,” Haworth said. “Where the Village gathers together every Sunday, of all ages, and intermingles.” This piazza mentality is a way for people to unleash the stresses from the previous week and spend time with their community. The location of the RSF Farmers Market seemed like the ideal spot for the Ranch to enjoy. Encouraging Sundays with the community, Haworth said, promotes a connection with others and at the same time improves quality of life. Residents can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, while having a conscious connection regarding where their food comes from and meeting their farmer. “People can have a meal lovingly prepared for them and stand there speaking to a chef who’s making it,” she said. Haworth and Varbaek wanted to create a unique destination. Rather than a shopping list and grocery bag experience, people are

pered throughout the market, there are café tables and bistro chairs decorated with fresh cut flowers and market umbrellas providing shade. Neighbors are meeting one another and making friends. Professional musicians also add to the Sunday ambience. For Varbaek, the vendors are an instrumental part of a successful day. And in fact, they have a long waiting list of vendors. “We have vendors in this market that do not do any other Farmer’s Markets,” he said. “We get to hand select who we want to work with.” The balance of energy and integrity is incredibly important to these owners. On the vendor roster are chefs from France who prepares crepes, from Spain who serves up paella, from Lebanon who makes manouche and falafel, Italy who prepares fresh pasta and sauce, and much more. There are also fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood, baked goods, chocolates, ice cream, smoothies and gluten-free products. Also on hand is a master gardener with a collection of succulents for sale. Fresh cut flowers are also abundant. Their top tier artisans include jewelers, artwork, French linens, hand forged Japanese cutlery and more. The couple also pointed out that the vendors make an effort to remember the names of guests. “Like in Europe, the Village knows the Village,” Haworth said. “Our passion and purpose behind this is to create something that I believe can be modeled after with other markets. It is a once-aweek gathering of the community where you’re part of something greater than yourself.” The Rancho Santa Fe Farmers Market is opened every Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is at 16079 San Dieguito Rd. in Rancho Santa Fe at the Del Rayo Village Shopping Center.

Another traditional wedding — Not! small talk jean gillette


t is truly coming. Not the end of days. Not the big one. Not a sharknado. Yesterday we spent two hours with my daughter’s wedding planner. I am officially, and inescapably, the mother of the bride now. I knew intellectually there was a prodigious difference between being mother of the groom and mother of the bride, but yesterday was the proverbi-

al ton of bricks. I sat, with mental duct tape across my mouth, and saw my sweet daughter lay out a barrel full of ideas and requests, in which the word traditional was only used with the word NOT firmly in front of it. You’d be surprised how calmly I received news like a giant-screen video game of “Street Fighter” to be played throughout the reception. Will I need to choose my dress color to compliment the color of freshly spilled blood? Actually, I don’t want to give away all their ideas, but it became clear that a good third of those attending will have no idea what the music, the flower girls

outfits or half the decor means, right down to Luke and Zelda atop their cake. Did I hear you say, “Who?” Maybe if you are a mom of teens or older, you are familiar with the world of anime and video games. It really depends on if yours was the house with the dual controllers and the multiple screens, where everyone hung out for marathons of Halo or Warcraft or whatever. Mine was not that house. I had no idea how much I did not know, but I expect to be a minor expert by September. My eyes kind of crossed trying to figure out how many 36-inch tables

we could fit around a dance floor in our backyard along with shabby chic couches. Our yard looked big until you started filling it with food stations, furniture and a DJ. And this activity doesn’t even begin to touch on the complete yard makeover I have planned to make it presentable to my standards and, of course, to the bride’s. I may buy my gardening gloves by the 100-pack. I am a woman on a mission. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer breathing into a paper bag at regular intervals. Contact her at

Story of Sheila Wheatley helps reduce the stigma of lung cancer By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Many individuals are touched by cancer in one way or another. For Ken Wheatley, the co-director for the California chapter of Lung Cancer Alliance, he was touched this disease when his late wife Sheila Wheatley was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. She was a nonsmoker and led a healthy lifestyle. Sheila died at 52 and battled the disease for less than two years until she succumbed to it. At the monthly Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club’s “Get Smart” series, Wheatley spoke of lung cancer, his late wife, and the stigma of the disease. Now, Wheatley dedicates his time to educate, fundraise, and trigger legislative awareness through the Lung Cancer Alliance, a nonprofit. At the beginning of the presentation, those in attendance viewed on a large screen a picture of Sheila taken several years ago. She was a successful business owner in San Diego. Both had a previous marriage, and when they met, Wheatley described their relationship as the “Romeo and Juliet” experience. “And this is why her passing was so difficult for me,” he said, with his throat tightening. The slides that followed showed the couple on vacations to the Polynesian Islands, Greece, and ski trips. “This is how we were. We were literally inseparable,” he said. Sadly, things changed when the couple planned a vacation to Egypt and Jordan. According to Wheatley, Sheila had had a lingering cramp in her calf for a couple of weeks. She called him on her way home from work, telling him she wanted to stop by the emergency room to get it checked. The doctor confirmed it was a blood clot but told her not to worry about it because it was located beneath the knee. Still, she mentioned her upcoming trip out of the country. For precautionary measures, they took a chest X-ray. “They found a four cen-

Annually, lung cancer kills about 160,000 people a year in the United States. The death rate is high because many have not received an early diagnosis. Wheatley went on to say that by the time lung cancer is discovered on an X-ray, patients Ken Wheatley, the co-director for the California chapter of Lung Cancer Alliance, tells the story of his wife might be far along in terms of metastasizing.

According to Wheatley, lung cancer is the leading cause of all cancer deaths nationally and internationally, and is the second leading cause of all deaths. When someone discovers that an individual is diagnosed with lung cancer, they naturally wonder if they are smokers, or at one time, were smokers.

On the rockin’ road to Dublin Young Dubliners are back with first studio album in four years By Alan Sculley

With the growth in the popularity of Irish-influenced rock in recent years, and the considerable visibility of groups like Flogging Molly and the Dropkick Murphys, Young Dubliners frontman Keith Roberts on occasion finds himself having to set a record or two straight about his group’s place in the Irish rock genre. “I’ve done interviews before and people are like ‘Flogging Molly, I love them. What influence were they on you?’ And I’m like you’ve got to read Wikipedia,” Roberts good-naturedly observed in a recent phone interview, as he remembered his band’s beginnings in the early 1990s. “I had a bar for three years (Fair City Dublin, in Santa Monica, Calif.), and every Saturday night was the Young Dubliners and the opening band was the Dave King Band. Dave King is the lead singer of Flogging Molly. The Dave King Band was a rock and roll band. He played with us for three years and his manager finally suggested that he embrace the Irish side of him. Dave is one of the best songwriters I’ve ever known and I love him to death. We had such a great three years. But if there was any influence, it was the other way around.” Indeed, the Young Dubliners are perhaps the longest running act among the generation of Irish-rooted rock bands that in the 1990s followed trailblazers such as the Pogues, the Waterboys and Black 47 onto the music scene. The Young Dubliners were the first band in this second wave of Irish rock groups to land a record deal, signing to Scotti Brothers Records and debuting nationally with the 1994 EP, “Rocky Road.”

Two decades later, Flogging Molly and the Dropkick Murphys may have attained greater success (and many other bands with similar influences, including the Tossers, the Saw Doctors and Street Dogs, are also on the scene), but the Young Dubliners are doing just fine. After raising money for recording expenses through fan donations, the group in March 2014 released its first studio album in four years, “Nine.” The album arrived on the Young Dubliners’ own record label, a venture that has put the group in a better position with its business.

“By releasing our own album, we’ve increased the profit potential now of record sales,” Roberts said. “It’s so dramatically different, the profit margin on a record that you release yourself versus on a record that they (record companies) release.” The ability to make more money on “Nine” was a driving force in starting the label. But Roberts said the music itself also benefitted from the arrangement. For one thing, the group didn’t have label representatives trying to influence the musical direction of the TURN TO DUBLINERS ON 22

Everything’s-right-with-the-world in Ojai hit the road e’louise ondash


ere’s what I like about Ojai: It’s laid back, mostly walkable, sits in a lovely valley surrounded by cinema-quality mountains, and exudes an everything’sright-with-the-world vibe. Ojai is the reward for working hard and for surviving the drive through Los Angeles. Of course, problems don’t disappear just because you drive three-anda-half hours up the coast, but time spent in Ojai, 25 minutes east of Ventura on Highway 33, can be a little hiatus from what’s troubling you. Spend a few days here and you’ll be armed to take on life’s challenges with a bit more gusto. There is some debate about the translation of the name Ojai, but I prefer Valley of the Moon, which has its origins within the early Chumash Indian culture. It denotes beauty and serenity, and that’s exactly what you’ll find. It would be hard to beat the beauty you’ll find in the acres that surrounds Old Creek Ranch. In the spring and summer months, an abundance of wild flowers line the driveway, and the deck is the perfect place to sip wine and take in the bucolic countryside. Ask owner John Whitman to tell you about the family label, Vino V Wines, and their specialty, Loureiro, a rare

Seven rooms and a 1000-square-foot cottage are available at the Lavender Inn. In the Topa Room, guests have a view the legendary “pink moment” sunsets, the few minutes when the Topa Topa Mountains reflect and diffuse rose-colored light. The moment changes slightly each day, depending on the time of sunset. Wine and cheese served in front of the fireplace is a daily offering.

Sam Gay, a native of Ojai and head bartender at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, conducts ‘Pixology” classes during April. He teaches guests how to create Pixie tangerine-based libations like the Bourbon Pixie Rumble, which Gay and other local bartenders invented.

The inviting patio at Su Nido Inn is a welcome respite from the outside world. The inn is a short two blocks off Ojai Avenue, where many of the boutiques, galleries and eateries are. Built in the Mission Revival style, the inn’s rooms are quiet, comfortable and cozy, and suites are equipped efficiency kitchens for extended stays.

SOCCER CHAMPS The Rancho Santa Fe Men’s First Division soccer team, managed by Mike Cobrda and Andy Strasner, wins the 2014-15 San Diego Soccer County League’s Alan Hall Memorial Cup. This was the RSF team’s inaugural year in the San Diego County Soccer League. The championship game was played at Jr. Seau Sports Complex, April 26 against a SBFC Sparta team. After falling behind three goals after 40 minutes of play in the first half, the RSF team rallied back to win 4-3. Jason Brady, Steve Kaufman, Ray King, and Martin Bader all scored goals in the win.

team included senior Macenzi McGuire who placed fourth in the 1600 meters, senior Patricia Benrey with sixth in shot put and senior Taylor Seamans with eighth in the 1600. Senior Joey DeMarco won the shot put with a throw of 54-02.5 feet. He ranks second in San Diego. Another boys’ team thrower, senior Myles Hundley, placed fourth with a throw of 145-02 ft. in the discus. He ranks seventh in the region. Senior Sandris Eglitis came in third in the pole vault at 14 feet. He also ranks fifth in the region. Another member of the boys’ team, Junior Ethan Carter, placed in the top 10 for the 300-meter hurdles.

It’s come, gone and we’re not talking about the local NFL team. Mercy, there’s still a “San Diego” attached to the Chargers name. For how long, no one is quite sure. What’s certain is the Chargers were keen in the recent NFL Draft. “It’s Melvin Gordon,” Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said after his first-round pick. Telesco was explaining why he surrendered a bounty of draft picks to wiggle up the board and get a Badger. “It’s Melvin Gordon,” Telesco stressed, regarding the Wisconsin star. “You don’t like to give away picks. But sometimes you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do to get an impact player.” In a flash the Chargers’ pedestrian running game got a boost. Ranked near the bottom in nearly every rushing category last year, Gordon’s skills include lowering his pads and leaving whiffing tacklers staring at his shoe bottoms. Gordon has a physical element. Gordon has a speed element. Gordon has found a home with the Chargers, despite them not having clue where theirs will be in the future. Maybe Gordon becomes cool in Carson? Maybe he ignites Inglewood? But we’ll fret over that later and do you really believe the Chargers’ assertion that season sales are up? Me, neither. But Gordon punches this ticket: He gives Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers another weapon and he’s still wearing bolts, right? Rivers stays put and we can’t wait until he plops the ball in Gordon’s gut. Gordon led the nation in rushing last season. Can he lead the Chargers back to the playoffs? Good question, and one coach Mike McCoy needs to be answered in the affirmative.

McCoy isn’t on the hot seat but his britches need to feel some heat. Consecutive third-place finishes means he needs Gordon to have a quick start. That’s what Telesco did in the draft, and here’s a toast to him. Instead of being cautious, Telesco was aggressive and delivered something that has been rare in these parts: positive news about the Chargers. Gordon is special and can he make the Chargers that as well? Hard to say, but he’ll hit the ground, uh, running. He’ll have every opportunity to contribute and is it too early to point him toward the “A” gap? The Chargers have a huge hole at running back and Gordon helps fill it. Remember the Chargers have but six rushing touchdowns last year and three of those fled with Ryan Mathews. Danny Woodhead returns from his broken leg and he’s your receiving back. Branden Oliver was last year’s leading rusher — hard to fathom — but he takes a back seat to Gordon. Donald Brown is back and he’s the last card you play. Rancho Santa Fe’s Telesco thinks he has an ace in Gordon and if he didn’t, he doesn’t give up two picks to move up two spots. Although Telesco’s move came with deception, Gordon hasn’t played an NFL snap but he’s already been faked out. The Chargers had Gordon lined up for a pre-draft chat at Chargers Park. When the team thought otherwise, Gordon felt San Diego was no longer his destination. “I was actually supposed to go visit and they ended up canceling,” Gordon said. “I don’t know if they canceled because they felt they (saw) everything they wanted, but that kind of threw me off a little bit. I didn’t know which direction they were headed.” The Chargers’ compass for a new stadium continues to spin. But after drafting Gordon, the Chargers’ rushing attack is no longer running in place.

DEL MAR — Will it make traffic worse? Could it actually decrease pedestrian safety? What’s the rush? Those were some of the questions from the 40 or so residents who attended an April 30 scoping meeting at City Hall Annex to identify issues that should be studied as part of the environmental impact review process for proposed changes at the intersection of Jimmy Durante Boulevard and San Dieguito Drive. Directors from the Planning, Public Works and Engineering departments, who were on hand with traffic and environmental consultants, said the long-established community plan calls for citywide improvements that discourage automobiles and make Del Mar more bicycle and pedestrian friendly. Changes to the intersection at the north entrance to the city have been in the works for about three years and were part of an ongoing citywide sidewalk improvement project. A roundabout was proposed when plans were made in that area of town. After residents voiced concerns about the traffic calming device it was pulled for a separate study to avoid delaying that project. “It made sense to not do work twice but clearly people wanted a more extensive look,” Public Works

Director Eric Minicilli said. The project calls for a roundabout with a 64-foot inside diameter, curbs and gutters, landscaping and crosswalks to slow speeds, improve traffic flow and pedestrian and bicycle safety. “The intersection, broken as it is, works,” Barbara Stegman, who lives on San Dieguito Drive, said. Minicilli agreed, saying Jimmy Durante currently “does an excellent job pushing cars” through the area at 45 or 50 mph with not a lot of accidents. “It does what it was designed to do,” he said, adding that city officials have discussed making the area safer.

“Clearly it’s safer to have lower speeds,” he said. While some residents have said they don’t want decreased speeds, that conflicts with the community plan, he added. Minicilli said doing nothing is a viable option but other people have said they want to slow down cars on that part of the road. Some residents said they fear a roundabout will make things worse, especially during the San Diego County Fair and summer horse racing season. They claim it will draw people leaving the fairgrounds because unlike the current situation motorists will be able to legally turn

around at the intersection to get back to the freeway. They say traffic will likely come to a standstill and residents of San Dieguito Drive won’t be able exit their neighborhood. Stegman said traffic during peak seasons has already “wiped out our ability to get out.” Betty Wheeler asked the consultants to study all options and not prejudge the roundabout as “the project.” Traffic consultant Dawn Wilson, from Fehr & Peers, said plans are to study the intersection with a roundabout, a traffic signal and no changes. She said new traffic data will be collected during the fair and typical days, but not during this year’s race season because of timing. She said information collected during the races over the past two years will be used, a fact that did not sit well with some residents.

“You need to make a count during the actual time we’re suffering,” Stegman said. Planning Manager Adam Birnbaum said opening days of the fair and races are worst-case scenarios and improvements at the corner “won’t be a panacea” for those days. Many residents suggested the project be put on hold until proposed projects, including Watermark Del Mar, a multifamily development on the southeast corner of the intersection, and improvements at the fairgrounds are completed. “It seems like this should be delayed because too many things can change,” one attendee said. “Why not wait?” asked another. Wilson said any future development in the area will be taken into consideration. Minicilli said project timing will be decided by the City Council. Not everyone opposes the roundabout. Many say traffic will flow more continuously, reducing noise and pollution from cars that idle or stop and go at a traffic signal. The California Environmental Quality Act includes a long list of items that must be studied, such as air and water quality, biological and cultural resources, land use, planning, noise and transportation. The scoping meeting was held to garner input on other environmental topics that should be included in the study. The draft EIR should be available for a 45-day public comment period in June or July. The final document is expected to be presented to council members this fall.

Sharing our economic future crafting north county vince vasquez


ecently, the five cities intersecting the 78 Highway (Oceanside, Carlsbad, Vista, San Marcos, Escondido) announced a new partnership to foster economic collaboration. Whether North County will realize its own economic destiny may hinge partly on the success or failure of their efforts. At issue is Innovate 78, a new branding campaign promoting employment and investment opportunities along the North County corridor. Funded by member cities, Innovate 78’s website showcases local business resources and many of the lifestyle amenities found in the area. By attracting and retaining talented workers and high-tech firms, organizers hope to bolster an image as a hub for innovation in the region. Though Innovate 78 just held its public launch event this April, the premise for the initiative began four years ago when the five corridor mayors were brought together by SANDAG, the regional planning authority, to work on 78-related projects. A spirit of collaboration endured, and a mutual desire for strong economic growth culminated into a two year commitment to shared promotion and collaboration. While city officials have always been friendly and cooperative with their neighbors, Innovate 78 is the first known full-time attempt at regional economic intergration. According to program officials, the effort is based on the core idea that five cities can work together as one. If a biotech firm in Carlsbad has outgrown its facility space, perhaps city officials in Vista or San Marcos can identify a suitable location nearby for an expansion site. Working together and leveraging each other’s strengths to address neighborly challenges, such as business site selection and expansion, helps keeps jobs and talent in the immediate area. Economic reality compels North County mayors to take action and build a lasting, meaningful economic partnership. According to the most recent Census workforce figures, North County economies are significantly interdependent; 43 percent of the 223,000 workers that call the 78 corridor home work within their city of residence or elsewhere in the corridor. In comparison, 64 percent of the 548,000 San Diego City workers also work within city limits. As with the European Union or the North American Free Trade Agreement, strengthening economic interdependence can break down barriers, increase efficiencies, and im-

prove marketplace competition against larger neighbors. Innovate 78 is a major step in the right direction. Ultimately what North County may need is a complete paradigm shift in how area cities approach talent recruitment and business retention. Could a uniform regulatory framework be created across 78 corridor cities, simplifying the process of opening a business? Could community plans and development goals be redrawn with a regional mindset? Could regional tax credits and other benefits be created to incentivize corridor business expansions? Where can regional economic integration take Oceanside, Carlsbad, Vista, San Marcos and Escondido? Only time will tell. Vince Vasquez is the Senior Policy Analyst at the National University System Institute for Policy Research, a regional economic think tank based in Torrey Pines. He is a Carlsbad resident.

to get over the cracks in the pavement.” Where others may see obstacles, Amy, who has had Spinal Muscular Atrophy since birth, sees opportunities. She is a school cheerleader, spokesperson for people with disabilities, and perennial showmanship winner with her rabbits and lambs at the fair.

Breaking the mold at Horizon Prep Horizon Prep is challenging the current direction of conventional education, offering a Christ-centered Classical Education in the heart of Rancho Santa Fe. From the moment you set foot on campus, you feel the difference: laughter echoing in the hallways, and engaged students abounding with a genuine joy of learning. Not restricted by the Common Core Curriculum Standards Initiative, Horizon Prep exceeds Common Core standards: Considering state and national educational standards to be a minimum bar, then going a step beyond by providing a Classical education and incorporating other higher standards as comparisons, exceeding expectations by a grade level or more. “The beauty of being a private Christ-centered, Classical school,” says Horizon Prep Assistant Head of Schools, Brent Hodges, “is that Horizon Prep is already light years beyond common standards and we are able to focus on the outcomes of developing the Master Student.” Horizon Prep’s Classical Education model has flourished in Western Culture for centuries and embraces the study of literature, language, science, mathematics, phi-

losophy, history and the arts. “Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric phases form the foundation of this consistent pedagogy and shape our teaching at every grade level,” says Hodges, “our low student-to-teacher ratio creates the optimum environment in which to provide the individual attention each child needs and deserves.” Following years of success in its Early Education program (Preschool / Pre-K / T-K / Kindergarten), School of Grammar (1st 5th Grade), and School of Logic (6th - 8th), Horizon Prep is primed to enter its third year in the School of Rhetoric (9th - 12th). With a focus on developing wisdom and creating life-long learners, the classroom looks a bit different in the School of Rhetoric. One way of achieving outcomes is through engagement around the Harkness Table. Instead of always seeing the teacher at the head of the class, you will find teacher and students together around the Harkness Table, actively engaged in learning and student-centered discussions. “In essence, the students need to learn how to learn. The content of the curriculum is what students use as the clay to form knowledge, but the

emphasis is on the learning and equipping students to understand their thinking process,” says Hodges, “so that in any aspect of school or life, they have the ability to think critically and take it to the next level.” Students also participate in a wide variety of arts, athletics, service, and enrichment opportunities at every grade level. Experiential learning in the form of electives, class trips and other school-sponsored activities build on the solid academic foundation and encourage well-rounded, engaged students who are willing and able to try new things. At Horizon Prep, Christ is truly the core of education. Weave that together with Classical Academic Excellence, and Horizon Prep truly is breaking the mold in education. Visit Horizon Prep and see the difference for yourself! Or better yet, come get a taste this summer at PREP SUMMER! Join us for one of our more than 40 summer course offerings where students can explore interests, develop important skills, enrich athletic ability, and become even more prepared for the challenges of the next academic level.

River Park agency renews partnership REGION — With a unanimous vote, directors of the San Dieguito River Park moved toward renewing a multi-agency partnership to govern the regional asset for the next 50 years. The Joint Exercise of Powers Agreement received affirmative votes from representatives of five of the park’s six member agencies: the county of San Diego and the cities of San Diego, Del Mar, Solana Beach and Poway. The board’s Escondido representative was absent. “The River Park is the

Yosemite of Southern California,” said county Supervisor Dave Roberts. “Our goal is to have it open to the public forever.” The park stretches from the beach in Del Mar to the San Dieguito River’s headwaters on Volcan Mountain, near Julian. A network of heavily-used trails is open, including much of the 55-mile Coast-to-Crest trail. A haven for wildlife, the park’s open space provides an important recreational asset for people. With the board’s approval

of the agreement, the document now heads to the board of supervisors and the city councils of the five member cities for a vote. That action is expected before July. Leaders from each member agency are certain to recognize the benefits of the river park, Roberts said, for their jurisdictions and beyond. “The park adds to our quality of life,” he said, “to the value of our homes and to the economic well-being of north San Diego County.”

ENCINITAS — The Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association announces the lineup for its 16th annual presentation of Classic Car Cruise Nights, along Coast Highway 101 and in adjacent parking lots, including new nightly themes and live bands. The series, sponsored by O’Reilly Auto Parts, will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. monthly on the third Thursday, beginning May 21 through September. The May 21 opener features Little Guys Street Rods, the Shelby Club, and

at Charlie’s Foreign Car, the third annual Vintage Motorcycle Show. Three music venues will host The Fabulous Woodies, Tom’s Beach Drifters and the Tower 7 Band, and The Retro Rockets. “We’ll have something special every month,” said Encinitas 101 Executive Director Thora Guthrie, “including a Heels and Wheels night, showcasing women and their classic rides, and a VW Bus Night.” Volunteer event organizer and emcee Doug Jones describes the scene

as “like in an old seaside postcard, where hundreds of classic and vintage cars drive along surf-washed cliffs to the town that is home to the only coastal cruise in North County San Diego.” As always, Encinitas 101 welcomes all classic and vintage vehicles to this free monthly event, where drivers take spaces along Coast Highway 101 and in adjacent parking lots, or simply cruise up and down the main street.

Social Security is not straight forward for most people. In fact, there are strategies you can employ to maximize the benefits you are eligible to receive – particularly among married, divorced and

widowed individuals. Please join us for a special Social Security Workshop, where you will be provided with critical information to help you maximize your Social Security benefits. Important Social Security facts to be covered in the workshop include; What is the current status of Social Security? When is the optimal time for you to start collecting Social Security?

SOLANA BEACH — Brighton Beach Memoirs is Neil Simon’s hilarious sem i-autobiog raph ica l portrait of a Jewish-American family as seen through the eyes of a young teenage boy. Set in Brooklyn in 1937, this coming-of-age comedy focuses on Eugene Jerome, a teenager who experiences puberty, sexual awakening and the search for identity as he tries to deal with his idiosyncratic family. “This is a new challenge for our teen actors,” said Sullivan Crews. “Neil Simon is brilliant at creating a true picture of family life in this play, complete with all the humor, anger, love and compassion that is the cornerstone of every family. He touches the heart with every word.” The show is rated PG and contains themes and language which may not be appropriate for younger audiences, although Brighton Beach Memoirs opens May 21.

t’s a given that the Napa/Sonoma wine country in California draws more visitors than any other vineyard region. All of us who are connected to this star-kissed industry owe it to Napa/Sonoma and the heavenly wines they have given us. I’m one for honoring those that made history and brought California the fame and fortune it deserved, but the next chapter of the wines of California could be more exciting than ever, and it’s there we raise a toast to Paso Robles. Cheers to “Paso” and its 26,000 acres and over 200 wineries located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles off Highway 101, the countryside amazingly produces the largest variety of red and white wines from most of the world’s grape varietals due to an extraordinary set of sub-climates. Over 40 different grape types get along with each other. Paso’s rich history began in the 1790s and hasn’t looked back. The area flourished when low production, boutique style, family-owned vineyards and wineries multiplied in the 1990s and early 2000s, favoring the land just east and west of the 101, just a few miles from the cool coast with its ocean breezes. One such family saw the future in the wine industry and acted on their beliefs. Richard and Pam Niner founded Niner Wine Estates in 2001, a 148-acre plantation, and called it Bootjack Ranch. Later they would increase their holdings and added Heart Hill Vineyard, 46 acres west of the 101, and then recently Jespersen Vineyard, 77 acres in the south and along

River Valley member.” Zarrabian also refreshed the minds of members about the history of this property and previous desires to develop it. Following the meeting, another member of the Neighbors for San Dieguito River Valley Preservation, David Allred, said one of their major concerns was that they did not want the Association to be blindsided by any developers. “It was important that the Association and board know and understand this, so they can take control of this discussion and our destiny,” said Allred. Allred went on to say that Lillian Rice’s vision of the Ranch was to have

high-density in the heart of the Village. But as one traveled away from the center circle, lot sizes would expand. “That was the vision that Lillian Rice had and it’s that vision which has made the Rancho Santa Fe Community known worldwide as one of the best places,” he said. As for the Neighbors for San Dieguito River Valley Preservation, the potential of a high-density residential development in this area goes against these core beliefs and long-term vision.

While one member in the audience thought there should be more to learn about the two options, director Heather Slosar shared her views. “The good news is that we’ve been elected by the community to represent what’s in the best interest of the community,” she said, adding how they received input from members in as many ways as possible. “We do respect the community and the desires of the community.” Director Jerry Yahr said the community has had a chance to come out

The disadvantage is every now and again you could overthink it. You have to find a happy medium.” Roberts and his bandmates — bassist Brendan Holmes, guitarist Bob Boulding, violinist/multi-instrumentalist Chas Waltz and drummer Dave Ingraham

make a vote,” he said. Director Philip Wilkinson admitted he is a big supporter of rural characteristics and round-

abouts. He thought the roundabouts were far superior to the traffic signals. However, due to the sense of urgency, he said traffic signals would be a better decision at this time. Director Rochelle Putnam believed if traffic signals were voted on, which they were, that the Association remains involved through the progression. “I think it’s really critical to stay engaged with the process and work with the county to mitigate our concerns about lighting, the aesthetics and safety, so that we can make sure that not only our community members, but the people who pass through here and come to work here every day are well served,” she said.

final course — Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe — is likely five years away from receiving recycled water due to the distance away from a recycled water source, Thorner said. The cost to link The Farms to the district’s recycled water pipeline was relatively inexpensive — about $250,000, $200,000 of which was borne by the course and $50,000 by the district — but the process took about seven years to complete. “It was quite the arduous process,” said Troy Mullane, the course superintendent. “There was a lot of coordination between a lot of entities; the course, the water district, the county and the HOAs. It was challenging, but in the end, it is very rewarding.” Mullane said that the recycled water with have potential residual effect of decreasing the course’s fertilization needs due to the water’s higher nitrate

levels. “It’s an improved water source for us,” he said. Recycled, or reclaimed water, is treated wastewater that meets high enough standards for irrigation of public places such as landscaping and golf courses, but does not meet drinking standards. It runs through bright purple colored pipes so that people can distinguish them from potable water pipelines. Before the conversion, the Farms would use about 214-acre feet- or 70 million gallons — of water per year in irrigation from a reservoir just north of the course. To put in perspective, Thorner said, an acre-foot of water can satisfy two-and-a-half families’ drinking water needs for a year. “Rather than using it on irrigation, we can now satisfy 500 families per year with this additional supply, and that is a pretty big deal,” Thorner said.

Roberts feels the band achieved that goal. “It (“Nine”) has been getting great reviews,” Roberts said. “We feel proud of it. It’s got depth to it, it’s got the variety of sound that we like, but it’s also very raw for us. We didn’t overdo it.” Roberts’ assessment of “Nine” is accurate. Always among the most diverse Irish-rooted bands, the new album finds the Young Dubliners continuing that trend. The songs are strong and range from catchy hard-hitting rock (the brisk “We The Mighty” and the

punchy “Say Anything”) to poppier, but still brisk, fare (“Up In The Air”), to acoustic ballads (“Rain” and “Only You & Me”) that are graceful and even tender, to tunes that really show an Irish folk influence (the rowdy “Seeds Of Sorrow” and “Fall”). The Young Dubliners continue to promote “Nine” on tour, and fans can expect a well-conceived and well-rehearsed show. “I love these bands that say we never do the same set twice in a row,” Roberts said. “And that to me is a little bit hard to believe, because we actually like to do a show, you know what I mean. I want it to be structured and we’re very kind of into playing as well as we can every night and having things being tight.”

Ed and Dorothy grew up in New Jersey and started their married life in Chicago, where he attended the Chicago Art Institute. “We have some of the most wonderful barns lined up for the tour,” noted Peggy Brooks, co-chairman along with Jane Carlin. “Rancho Santa Fe’s equestrian history goes back to its earliest years and has evolved into being the home of some of the country’s most prestigious stables,” she said. Tour tickets, which include entrance to five barn estates and the party, are $50, and $45 for Historical Society members. Checks made out to the RSFHS may be sent to RSFHS, P.O. Box 1, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067. Or, stop by the historical society’s headquarters at La Flecha House, 6036 La Flecha, Rancho Santa Fe.
