Association selects architect consultant By Christina Macone-Greene

der to glean opinions. The Association relies on votes and responsive members to help point the community toward certain directions. Next up at the podium was Licosati who thanked everyone for the opportunity to speak. “We’ve got a world class community here in Rancho Santa Fe. We have world class residents, and we deserve to have world class infrastructure and amenities,” he said. “I feel somewhat like I’m joining the championship team here because this board has accomplished so much in the last year,” he said, adding how it was like joining a smooth running machine. Licosati mentioned his goals of transparency, fiscal responsibility, and community engagement, which have already been demonstrated by the board and implemented in many of its policies. While voter registration

RANCHO SANTA FE — Following an April Town Hall Meeting for a health club update in Rancho Santa Fe, the RSF Association board of directors took its next step to select an architect consultant. Before going over the details, it was confirmed the health club and pool committee did rename the project to the Covenant Club in Ranch Santa Fe. Association manager Bill Overton told the board and members that the pool and fitness process was moving forward pursuant to its focus groups and town hall meetings. Overton said before he joined the Association, a request for proposal (RFP) was initiated. The Association received a total of four respondents. “We felt one didn’t meet the bid and we narrowed it down to three bidders,” he said. Overton went on to say that the community voted on funding $350,000 for the professional planning phase and recommended Kirk Mason of Mason Architecture and Design. Overton pointed out that Mason was competitively priced and had an incredible reputation not only as an architect, but as a community builder. Mason Architecture designed the Santaluz Club. According to Overton, the Covenant Club planning and design committee unanimously recommended Mason Architecture at a cost of $274,800. The board unanimously agreed and made a motion to approve on May 7. Overton wanted members to know that director Jerry Yahr, who has a background in real estate development and property management, is leading the design team. It’s estimated the architect consultant’s evaluations and processes will take about eight months to complete. Yahr gave the board and members some architectural consultant insight. “The scope without getting into great detail

Miracle Babies 5K grosses over $108,000 By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The 7th annual 5K for Miracles Babies at the Embarcadero Marina Park South was a huge a success. The May 3 event raised grossed more than $108,000 and netted $80,875. All monies will be filtered to the nonprofit, founded by Rancho Santa Fe residents, Dr. Sean Daneshmand and his wife Marjan. Miracle Babies provides financial assistance and support to families whose newborns are in the neonatal intensive care unit

(NICU). The nonprofit’s purpose is to improve the welfare of children, women and families through the efforts of medical care, prevention and education. Marjan Daneshmand’s team, Mighty Miracles, was the top fundraising team for the day. There were 1,700 registrants, not including children under 12. “The 5k was fabulous. There was so much energy and so much creativity with all of the different superhero themed teams,” she said. “There were a variety of kid

activities and the little ones were having a blast.” Daneshmand shared how the event attracted 40 different vendors. On hand were the Moscot and players from the Xolos Mexican Soccer team who played soccer with the little kids. Also there was 100.7 Radio encouraging and cheering the competitors. For Daneshmand, the day was filled with memorable moments. “We took a group pictures

and there was so many people that it was hard to capture everyone. Other awesome moments were the little kid diaper dash race and just seeing all of the creative superhero costumes,” she said. Daneshmand went on to thank their sponsors, vendors and families. She described this year’s event as a grassroots effort. “It was the energy of our family fundraising teams and individuals who really made this year a success,” she said.

RSF Association board of director candidates speak at annual meeting By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — During the course of the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s annual meeting, President Ann Boon introduced two new candidates for board of director on May 14. Outgoing directors are Rochelle Putnam and Craig McAllister. New candidates wishing to fill those seats are Fred Wasserman and Mike Licosati. Wasserman’s education includes an MBA from USC and a Doctorate in Public Health earned at UCLA. He currently serves on the board for the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology. In the Rancho Santa Fe Community, Wasserman served on the Finance Committee and is the co-president of the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club. Licosati received his bachelor’s degree and law degree from the University of San Diego and earned his MBA at the University of Chicago. Licosati has been on the

board and coached RSF Little League, served on the Fiber Optic Committee, Finance Committee and is on the Health Club Steering Committee. Boon first introduced Wasserman who shared some of his insight. He told the members who attended the meeting at The Garden Club that he was very transparent. “I will say what I think. I’ll tell you what I don’t think,

and I’ll tell you what’s possible,” he said. He continued, “And the thing that we need to really be concerned about is we need to do more homework. If we’re going to do something, we need to study it thoroughly.” He then went on to address the Internet connectivity issue. Wasserman pointed out that the Ranch has so many providers promising things that they unfortunately

cannot deliver. “Well, we’re going to try and put a network in here that will deliver,” he said. Wasserman also compared the Association as a small business. It’s a small municipality, he said. The Association owns land and farming. Wasserman said there is a great deal going on in the Ranch. He encouraged members of the Covenant to vote in or-

Boon delivers president’s comments at annual meeting By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — During the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s annual meeting, President Ann Boon presented her remarks on May 14. The venue for the annual meeting was at the Garden Club. The comprehensive speech began with the Association’s fiscal responsibility. Boon wanted members to know that they began 2015 by completing a full independent audit of its accounting departments and hired Don May, their new controller. According to Boon, the accounting department has been restructured and now operating under a full, accrual accounting system. “Although Don assures us that there is still more work to be done, I think it is safe to say that we are light years ahead of where we were a year ago in our level of professionalism, accuracy and clear reporting,” she said. Boon noted how they have also renegotiated its banking service contracts and explored new liability insurance. She described the new policy to offer lower rates and better coverage for the Association. “I would just like to say that it’s been wonderful working with all the members of this board who have been so dedicated to getting our house in order,”

she said. Next, Boon discussed transparency at the Association. “Transparency in the wider world seems to be an overused word yet infrequently implemented as practical policy. However, this board has been very seAnn Boon rious about acting transparently,” she said. President, RSF Association In example, Boon mentioned how the Art maintain the Association’s “I’m saying that with Jury, now referred to as its character. every action the board has Covenant Design Review Closed meetings are considered, the board has Committee, continues to now opened. taken, we’ve held our dis-

Parents respond to foreign language survey Of 798 surveys that were received, 198 responses came back By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Superintendent Lindy Delaney updated the board regarding the foreign language survey conducted by the San Diego State Research Group. Through parent online votes, the goal of the survey was to glean information on whether or not foreign language should be implemented in kindergarten through fifth grade classes in the RSF School District. According to Delaney, a total of 798 parents received the survey and 198 took part in it. Currently, the data is being compiled into graph format and Delaney told the board she hopes to receive this by June 1 so it could be reviewed during the June board agenda. “I really appreciate everybody that took the survey,” she said. “I know it takes time to do that but we’ve got some good feedback.” Delaney thought the open-ended questions were helpful, and from

those, the District could arrive at a recommendation. Once the results are fully in, Delaney said, they will proceed on that front. “But everything’s on schedule,” she said. Delaney pointed out that for the 500 parents who didn’t take part in the survey they probably didn’t feel the need to weigh in. “There are not as many as I hope would have taken it, but it’s what we have,” she said. Delaney told the board that the district sent out two email notices prior to the survey. Two parents did call in saying they did not get the online survey. Another parent found it in their spam folder, Delaney said, while another never located it. One parent at the meeting spoke up mentioning she was unable to take the survey on her mobile device at her home in the Ranch due to Internet service challenges. Nevertheless the survey numbers received will be used as a data point along with teacher feedback and budget analysis.

cussions in public and allowed them to be reported to you in the local newspapers,” Boon said. Boon then touched upon its increase in voter registration and their efforts to improve and streamline the process. Also part of Boon’s remarks was the topic of the proposed health and fitness club, now known as, The Covenant Club. Its design, marketing, and finance committees are comprised of an array of members. While some come from the RSF Golf Club and Tennis Club, others volunteers are actually doubters of the proposed project. “For a project this big and controversial, we wanted to be sure that the entire community would have a voice in the planning phase long before we go to the community vote,” she said. In regard to cell phone service in the Ranch, staff members of the Association have worked with various cell proprietors. Boon reported that particular parts of the Covenant are receiving better coverage. She called their work ongoing with cell phone reception. “As far as broadband, high speed internet goes, this remains the highest priority. We’ve hired a consultant who’s studying the engineering for installation of fiber optic cable and analyzing the best investment

models the Association might pursue to proceed with this project in the most responsible way possible,” she said. “Our hope is to have a specific plan in place by the end of the summer.” As for the drought, Boon discussed their partnership with the Santa Fe Irrigation District in an effort to optimize water conservation with longstanding resolutions. And in staying one step ahead of wildfire preparedness, Boon said it remains a critical issue since it is impacted by the drought conditions. “Our parks and recreation department works closely with the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Department to target dead and dying trees along our major thoroughfares. These trees not only cause potential hazards in terms of fuel over fires but also threaten to block evacuation routes in case of emergency if one were to fall across the roadway,” she said. Boon said that the Association and board have set lofty goals to enhance the Covenant community while preserving its historical charm. “We are all committed to ensuring that the special character and lifestyle of the Covenant will not just survive but will flourish far into the future,” Boon said.

Boon commends Overton for excellent work By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — During the course of the annual meeting for the Rancho Santa Fe Association President Ann Boon commended its new association manager Bill Overton, for a job well done. “I cannot overstate the role that Bill has played in the short time he’s been here,” Boon said. She went on to say how Overton has energized the Association’s staff, helped keep their board focused and helped shepherd the achievement of many of their goals. “Bill studies issues, learns quickly and moves with confidence,” she said. Boon noted Overton’s three decades of experience and his team building acumen, calling him a positive and forceful leader. She then passed the microphone to Overton so he could convey what the first few months have been like as the manager of the RSF Association. Overton thanked Boon for such positive comments but thought he was given a little too much credit. “I’m very fortunate that I inherited a great team, a great board, and great volunteers,” he said. “Basically, what I’ve been focusing on is teambuilding and kind of just helping everybody work together a little more fluidly. That may sound like an over-simplification, but to me it’s not.”

Overton described the first few months in his position as a whirlwind since there was so much to learn. “I’m impressed and sometimes overwhelmed a little bit by the passion in this community,” he said. Overton continued, “Passion channeled in the right way is important.” Overton pointed out that he was grateful to both

volunteers and staff that they welcomed his thoughts on teambuilding and collaborating. He compared his teambuilding like a basketball team. Although he doesn’t score all the points, Over-

ton said, he makes sure everybody who’s supposed to have the ball gets it. “That’s what I’ve been trying to do the first four months. And I think the best is yet to come,” he said.

Vaccination risks: Knowledge is power By Dr. S.E. Rogers

Kudos to Stephanie Dumont for her insightful article on political, ethical and financial concerns regarding the proposed SB 277. The cost of insuring against vaccine injuries will be passed along to the school districts, who can ill afford it. The previous article written by Thomas Elias did little more than propagandize for the pro-vaccination lobby. For example, the measles outbreak that occurred in the Del Mar Union school district last year involved a majority of vaccinated students. It would seem that these vaccinations carry a definite risk, with a decidedly indefinite promise of immunity. Last week two babies died and 14 more were hospitalized in a small Mexican village after being vaccinated. A personal report to the author indicated that the death toll was actually seven. An internal memo from the manufacturer did not require a recall of “hot lots” but rather an order to break up these lots of vials so that one population would not suffer an unusually high rate of adverse reactions. Folks, these are pharmaceutical corporations you are entrusting with your child’s health. They are not exactly public service organizations and the revolving door between the FDA, the CDC, and private industry in paved with gold. The wolf is guarding the chicken coop: are your chickens safe? The self-righteous senator who introduced the bill has benefited from this highly profitable relationship. The bottom line is innocent children are now dead and damaged. Do you want yours to be next? If you are worried about your susceptible in-

fants being exposed to the unvaccinated, you live in the wrong place. We have open borders. Tuberculosis is everywhere. If the government’s concern were your child’s public health, this would not be the case. SB277 means the government owns your child, it’s that simple. That was last the case during the era of slavery. Get ready for more of the same. Federally mandated vaccinations is coming for everyone, and soon. Don’t you find it strange that so many states

It would seem that these vaccinations carry a definite risk... are submitting similar compulsory vaccinations bills at the same time? The CDC is pulling the strings and their agenda is largely unknown. Unless you trust that every vaccination is contaminant free, has only the ingredients listed, and that all those factors (viral DNA fragments, fetal cell lines, trace metals) are completely safe, you had better think twice about injecting them into your body or forcing someone else to do so. This event in Mexico was very timely in provoking us to consider the wisdom of forced, government-mandated vaccinations. Of course these “statistics” won’t count according to the CDC because the adverse events did not occur in the U.S. Sadly, most adverse reactions to vaccinations in the U.S. are not reported, in part because of the stringent time reporting requirements. A baby that dies over two weeks later, or shows signs of autism a month later is simply not a significant statistic. Scientifically it is difficult to prove a negative,

yet the CDC adheres to the mantra that “it couldn’t be the vaccines.” One of the main studies used to back up that claim was the Danish study. The chief investigator, Poul Thorsen was indicted for financial fraud for embezzling the funds meant to conduct the study. Yet he was not changed with scientific fraud. The CDC did not re-evaluate their conclusions that MMR does not cause autism. How strange. Do you find it even more odd that Dr. Wakefield was charged with scientific fraud for a smallscale study that thousands of mothers of autistic children will confirm is accurate? You must do your own due diligence to discover the truth. Wouldn’t it make sense to refrain from any further submission to vaccination until you are completely certain that it is safe and effective? As Ms. Dumont pointed out, “safe” only means the number of kids that were killed or damaged is at an acceptable level of collateral damage and statistics were appropriately skewed. “Effective” means produces an antibody titer, not protection from any particular disease. Why else would an increasing schedule of booster be required? I would be happy to provide an extensive scientific bibliography of references to anyone who wants to do their due diligence in this matter. I performed several years of research at a major medical school working under world class mentors that were nominated for the Nobel Prize in 2013. My graduate degree is in the field of microbiology and immunology. You may contact me: Dr. S.E. Rogers has a master’s of science in microbiology and immunology.

This is a response to the letter by Andrew Chan, “Decline in local businesses a detriment to our community,” in the May 15 edition. I felt obligated to respond since I own one of the businesses that he referenced when using E Street Cafe as an example of a local business leaving but being replace by “large, profit driven businesses.” I am an optometrist and a 38-year resident of Encinitas. For most of that time, I have maintained a practice in one of several North County cities, including Del Mar, Solana Beach, Cardiff, Oceanside and most recently Carlsbad. However, my lease was just about up when the E Street location became available, so I approached the owner of the building and signed a lease at the end of 2014. The coffeehouse space

was divided into two units with the Bell Realty Group moving into the adjacent location. In honor of the memory of the E Street Cafe, I named my office: E Street Eyes (and use the same font that the cafe used). I am overjoyed to be finally practicing in the town that I have called home for so long and am contributing to the community as much as possible. I have joined the Encinitas 101 Main Street Association and the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce; I have been a member of the North County Business Group for four years (we meet in Cardiff); I work with the Lion’s Club in performing eye examinations and taking eyeglass donations; I took a booth at the last Street Fair (and signed up for the Fall Festival) and am offering all Encinitas residents a significant discount on all of my services as a grand opening special.

I agree that we need more community development and I contrast my services with the likes of Costco and Walmart on a daily basis. I also agree that we need to care more about our community but I interact with local leaders who already express a great deal of pride in our town. I believe that this will lead to the “stable local economy, stronger social development and the preservation of our local environment” that you so sincerely desire. However, ALL businesses need to make a profit so that they can continue to serve the community and put some of those profits back into the local coffers. I feel that I’m doing my part — even if I have to start serving coffee with every eye exam! Jeff Anshel, OD, FAAO is an Encinitas resident and owner of E Street Eyes.

Now is the time to trench the tracks through Encinitas By Doug Fiske

The Don Breazeale and Associates study commissioned and shelved by the city of Encinitas in 2000 gives $152 million (2014 dollars) as the added cost of trenching the tracks through the city when they are doubled. That includes four ped/bike/vehicular crossings and eight ped/ bike crossings in the 5.1 miles between the north side of the San Elijo Lagoon and the south side of the Batiquitos Lagoon. Oddly, the study did not address Encinitas Boulevard. The rails and road there would essentially have to trade places. In 2014 dollars, the Lomas Santa Fe crossing in Solana Beach cost $23.4 million. Add that to Breazeale’s figure, and you have $175.4 million as a reasonably accurate estimate of trenching’s inclusive cost through our city. Funding would come by reallocating part of the $6.5 billion SANDAG and CalTrans say they will spend in the North Coast transportation corridor between now and 2040. The Carlsbad City


Council recently voted to spend up to $250,000 for an economic study that will compare trenching with not trenching doubled tracks between the south side of the Buena Vista Lagoon and the north side of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon. That distance includes their downtown area and three current at-grade crossings. They contend that trenching when doubling would increase the appeal of their corridor, thereby increasing sales, property and transient occupancy tax revenues, while not trenching would have the opposite effect. Further, Carlsbad says trenching when doubling would eventually pay for itself and then perpetuate increased tax revenues. SANDAG has allotted about $125,000 for studying the engineering and economic feasibility of trenching when doubling the tracks through the cited distance in Carlsbad. With twin tracks through the North Coast corridor, daily rail traffic is projected to double from about the present 50 to

more than 100. On average, 100 trains per day is one every 14 minutes. Without trenching through Encinitas, the current noise, traffic congestion and public safety hazards would also double. The divided community and illegal parking in the railroad right-of-way would continue. As Carlsbad projects if their tracks are not trenched when doubled, the Encinitas rail corridor’s appeal would decline, as would sales, property and transient occupancy tax revenues. As Carlsbad has shown, the time to act on trenching the tracks is now. It’s time to stop the naysaying, to stop quoting inaccurate cost estimates and to start getting the job done. Trenching the tracks through Encinitas would benefit residents, visitors, businesses and city coffers forever. The current Encinitas City Council can make trenching the tracks its legacy. Doug Fiske has lived in Encinitas for 46 years.

Remember that old-money dress code?

small talk jean gillette


Don’t tell me it’s just my generation, because my husband brazenly flaunts most dress codes. His first suit of choice is a sweat suit. He is, however, among those men who will don a coat and tie, if the event is formal. And yes, I do realize how lucky I am to have a spouse who will make himself presentable without a fight. But the fact that I still call a coat and tie “looking presentable” rather puts me back to square one. I really must get over it. Around here, you are going to see a vast majority of T-shirts and cargo pants where a dress shirt and pants used to be. With 100-degree Santa Ana’s in December, we don’t even wear much wool in the winter. I rather marvel that the suit warehouse guys stay in business. Apparently, somebody out there, other than me, still clings to “business attire” expectations. I hope to run into them one day. But he or she will very probably be wearing white pants — after Labor Day. Tsk.

broke out my white pants last week, and not a moment before the dawn of Memorial Day. Then I laughed at myself, because, I suspect, I am the only person for several states around even aware of that passé, old-money dress code. I don’t actually remember my mother ever saying “You simply may not be seen in white shoes before Memorial Day,” but it is as deeply ingrained as any habit from childhood I can think of. I absolutely don’t judge if other people wear white all year long. But to this day, somehow, deep down, it just feels wrong. I have amused even my loveliest of friends with my rather boring wardrobe, and I laugh right along with them. I am ridiculous.

‘Silent epidemic of modern era’ subject of lecture By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Recently, the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center had a special visitor who talked about the changing perceptions of memory loss. Gilbert Ho, M.D., a geriatric cognitive neurologist who is also the chief executive officer and director of the Pacific Center for Neurological Disease and Center for Memory and Aging, presented the different facets of normal aging and dementia. Ho explained to everyone that Alzheimer’s disease was named in honor of Dr. Alois Alzheimer. In 1906, Alzheimer studied the brain tissue of a woman after she passed away and noticed tangles and plaque. The woman died of a mental illness which impacted her behavior, memory, and language. “So there’s over a hundred year history already that people don’t really know about that much with this condition,” he said. Ho went on to say that people generally believe that dementia is in only in Western industrialized nations. However, if one looks hard enough, it is hidden under other layers of culture and local practices. “In China, they used to not want to talk about it because they thought it was disrespectful to their elders,” Ho said. “But if you really survey it hard enough, you’ll find that everywhere you have the same prevalence.” As age increases from 65 to 90, Ho said, one has the same rising pervasiveness of dementia. He described it as the “Landscape of Cognitive Disease.” This may range from age associative impairment, to mild impairment, to a cognitive disease such as dementia. Generally, those who

are suffering from cognitive disease don’t personally recognize it. In cases such as this, a family member or friend brings it to their attention. “Dementia defines the symptoms, but it doesn’t tell you what the problem

is, and it’s not technically a diagnosis. For example, if somebody says that there is dementia, what they’re really saying is that somebody can’t think or remember well and that it impacts their everyday activities,” he said. “Does it tell you

what the reason is? Not necessarily.” While dementia is being called the silent epidemic of the modern era, Ho went on to tell attendees the importance of patients receiving the right diagnosis, so proper cutting-edge treatments can be started.

Foundation offers multiple lifestyle grants 4S RANCH — The 4S Ranch-Del Sur Community Foundation (4SCF), an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation, held its eighth annual Grant Awards Celebration on May 17, providing six nonprofit organizations with a total of $27,000 in funding. The 2015 grants will help enhance the rich natural resources and open spaces throughout 4SRanch-Del Sur while fostering healthy lifestyles for people of all ages and abilities.

The programs funded include: • Worms Are the Way program at the Encinitas Solana Center for Environmental Innovation ($6,000) • Healthy Bodies, Healthy Planet Week from The Design39C Collaborative ($1,400); • Performing in the Great Outdoors program with Del Norte High School Music Boosters ($4,000) • Reptile Rescue program from the Zoologi-

You’ve planned for almost everything… You’ve planned for your children’s education and for your retirement. But, if you’re like most people, you haven’t wanted to think about your funeral. Did you know that a family has to make more than 50 decisions following a death? Funeral arrangements and financial considerations are only part of the process. By pre-arranging your funeral, you can relieve some of the stress on your family at this difficult time.

cal Society of San Diego ($4,100) • Bikes For Kids & Youth at the Loving Life Foundation ($5,000) • Connected: Community & Conservation program with I Love A Clean San Diego County, Inc. ($6,500). “We’re excited to present a record amount of $27,000 to nonprofits working to enhance our community,” Judy Simeroth, grants committee chairwoman, said. “Our focus this year was to connect, protect, and increase access to nature while promoting healthy life choices. We believe all six of these organizations will improve the lives of those who live, work and play within the 4SRanch-Del Sur area.” “Since its inception in 2008, 4SCF has granted over $175,000 to 38 programs in the community,” Tanny Joyce, chairwoman CROP of the 4SRanch-Del Sur .93 Community Foundation,.93 said. “Through these 4.17 we are building grants, a better community in 4.28 4SRanch-Del Sur to support current and future generations. The many grantee suc-

cess stories, such as the 2014 Junior Achievement of San Diego County program, are a testament to this mission and our annual efforts.” “Today’s youth require hands-on experiences to better understand the value of work readiness, career planning, and leadership skills,” said Tara Michener at Junior Achievement of San Diego County. “The Job Shadow program, with support from 4SRanch-Del Sur and The San Diego Foundation, has given us the opportunity to incorporate these experiences directly into a curriculum to better prepare students for the real world. To date, over 100 students have gone through the program and worked with companies such as Sony and Otterbox.”

Making prearrangements allows your family to focus on the memories of your life rather than the details of your death. Then you will have planned for everything. Call us today for assistance in pre-planning for burial or cremation. We’re here to help.

Brown reappoints Stephen Shewmaker to the 22nd DAA By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Stephen Shewmaker was reappointed on May 15 by Gov. Jerry Brown to the 22nd District Agricultural Association board of directors, which governs the Del Mar Fairgrounds. He has served on the nine-member panel since 2012. “My time onboard thus far has been very enjoyable and rewarding,” Shewmaker said. “The work is much more than simply attending monthly board meetings as we all have committee assignments and various community duties to attend.” Shewmaker is leading a special committee to possibly repurpose Surfside Race Place to generate long-term revenue for infrastructure improvements for the race track and fairgrounds. Surfside is an approximately 100,000-square-foot satellite wagering facility built in 1991 to accommodate 5,000 people. At one time it attracted about 2,700 people daily, but a decrease in offsite betting has resulted in daily attendance of less than 350. Current plans are focused on turning the facility into a microbrewery and tasting room. Shewmaker is also chairman of the Human

Resources and Compensation Committee, which is tasked with ensuring the 22nd DAA can retain and recruit quality people in the future. “I am proud that during my two-and-a-half years on the board we have much better relations with our neighbors than in past years,” Shewmaker said, referring to Del Mar and Solana Beach. “Although the board members have very diverse backgrounds, we work together well as a team and much of this is due to the leadership of Fred Schenk, our current board president,” he added. “I look forward to working with the team to build a strategic plan for the future so that we can keep our fair and race track at a best-inclass level into the future. “We also are hosting the Breeders’ Cup in 2017, which presents us an op-

portunity to show off our fairgrounds and race track internationally,” he said. Shewmaker is currently president of Cubic Transportation Systems, which

provides payment and information solutions and related services for intelligent travel applications. He is a member of the American Public Trans-

portation Association and the California Chamber of Commerce board of directors and is treasurer of the Don Diego Foundation. His colleagues, fair-

grounds staff and the public helped him celebrate his 65th birthday at the May 12 meeting, presenting him with cupcakes and singing “Happy Birthday.”

Dreams of California through the eyes of San Diego artists brush with art kay colvin


ceanside Museum of Art (OMA) and L Street Fine Art Gallery together celebrate the work of outstanding San Diego-based artists as they individually interpret the California Dream in partnering exhibitions. As extensions of “California Dreaming” — the international juried exhibition that traveled to Italy in 2014, returned for exhibit at OMA, and is currently on view at the Riverside Art Museum through early summer 2015 — the dual San Diego Dreaming exhibitions spotlight creative interpretations specific to artists of San Diego County. Located in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, L Street Fine Art Gallery’s San Diego Dreaming exhibit features 30 San Diego-based artists through July 5, 2015. Those hailing from North County communities include: Rebecca Bauer of Cardiff; Rita Shulak of Carmel Valley; Richard Dowdy, Diane O’Connell, Robert Pendleton and Rosemary Valente of Carlsbad; Julie Ann Stricklin of Del Mar; Robert Avon Lees and Jim Hornung of Encinitas; Shuang Li of Escondido; Mark Jesinoski, Anita Lewis and Glen Maxion of Oceanside; Connie McCoy of Rancho Santa Fe; Amber Foote and Helen Shafer Garcia of Vista. Participating artists from other communities within San Diego County include: Bre Custodio, Paula Des Jardins, Amber George, Ken Goldman, Kirby Kendrick, Sherry Krulle-Beaton, Margaret Larlham, Chris Martino, Joe Nalven, Robyn Oliver, Robin Raznick, RD Riccoboni, Julianne Ricksecker, and Michael Taylor. The partnering San Diego Dreaming exhibition at OMA, which continues through June 21, includes the work of 40 prominent San Diego-based artists, juried by Malcolm Warner, Executive Director of the Laguna Art Museum. The original 2014 California Dreaming invitation to submit artwork exploring the celebrated lifestyle, influences, and environs of Southern California was met with

enthusiastic worldwide response. According to OMA Executive Director Daniel Foster, “Although initially unanticipated, it became glaringly obvious in the process of jurying the “California Dreaming” exhibition that a complimentary exhibition exclusively focused on talented San Diego artists would be an enriching extension of this popular theme. These shows reflect OMA’s mission to produce outstanding and relevant exhibitions focused primarily on San Diego and Southern California artists and audiences.” Corresponding to their international exhibition forerunner, the San Diego Dreaming dual exhibitions are composed of original contemporary works that creatively interpret Southern California’s iconic culture, specifically through the eyes of San Diego artists. Encinitas artist Robert Avon Lees verbalizes his perspective: “San Diego is inspiring to a dreaming visionary person. My art gravitates to the subject of science as well as to mystical and metaphysical insights. I see San Diego as a place to incubate and prosper and dream. There is just

something in the air that fosters this creative multi-disciplinary cross-pollination. The environment nurtures thoughts and visions. My California dream painting is abstract with forms and colors as a metaphorical way of expressing different emotions, movements and qualities of life.” A combined total of seventy San Diego-based artists portray their highly individualized interpretations of the “California Dream” in the dual exhibitions at Oceanside Museum of Art and L Street Fine Art Gallery. An artists reception for San Diego Dreaming will be held at L Street Fine Art June 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. Through July 5, the exhibition will be on view at L Street Fine Art, located at 628 L Street, San Diego CA 920101.

here’s a yellow sign with red lettering on the lawn of Louie and Fran Padilla’s house. It says: “Warning. Please stay off property. This is a private residence… Thanks for your coopera-

tion.” The Padilla’s need this highly visible admonition because, as much as some people wish it was, their home is not a public monument. It is, however, the house that served as the fictitious home of Walter White, the chemistry teacher-gonewrong in the hit television series “Breaking Bad.” Some days, as many as 200 cars a day cruise by the house in this Albuquerque neighborhood of Northeast Heights.

And yes, there have been plenty of pizzas tossed on the roof (Season 3; Episode 2). “More pizzas than we ever want to see again,” says Fran, who stands on the sidewalk chatting with series fans. The Padilla home is the most-visited film/TV home in the country, says our driver/guide Frank Sandoval, owner of Breaking Bad RV Tours. “It recently surpassed Tony Soprano’s residence in New Jersey.” Several times a week, Sandoval chauffeurs passengers to 17 “Breaking Bad” film locations throughout the city that has become a mecca for film and TV productions because of a healthy rebate. (Spend $10 million; get $3 million back.) Has “Breaking Bad” been good for Albuquerque? Without a doubt, says Tania Armenta, vice president of marketing for the Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau. “We saw interest in the city increase about Season 4. Before that, most people were not aware of the state and what it has to offer. “Tourism numbers have continued to increase in the last few years.

We’ve had 220.000 visitors to the part of our website that is dedicated to ‘Breaking Bad.’” Besides visitor dollars, each episode of “Breaking Bad” (they total 62) brought $1 million to Albuquerque’s economy. Sandoval began his tour in April 2014 after spending seven months of overhauling the RV and getting Department of Transportation approval. “After the show ended (in 2013), we had tons of friends flying in to visit the locations where it was

filmed,” Sandoval explains. “A friend of mine from Florida… said it would be really cool to cruise around and see the locations in a ‘Breaking Bad’ RV. So we put the wheels in motion.” Since then, Sandoval, who had a minor role as a DEA agent in the series and does a credible imitation of Jesse Pinkman, has introduced Albuquerque to visitors from all over the world – Austria, Australia, Germany, Africa and Russia to name a few. Some of these fans are fanatics. “We had a guy who wanted to run around in his

‘tighty whities’ (as Walter White did in the opening episode). Also, we had a girl who, when she saw the RV, broke down in tears and ran up and hugged and kissed it. She said this was the best day ever in her life.” A saner fan of the show, I didn’t start watching until the season was long over.

his is the time of year that the biggest and best artichokes make their way to area markets from the Castroville area of California. Ocean Mist Farms is headquartered there domi the nates artichoke market in the U.S. I had the pleasure of doing some marketing work for them a few years back and since the name of my agency is Artichoke Creative, it was pretty much marketing heaven and the several trips I made up to Castroville rank among the best business trips I’ve been on. While Ocean Mist grows many types of vege-

tables, it’s their artichokes they are known for and there are areas around Castroville where artichoke fields stretch as far as the eye can see. It’s quite a site and it inspired me to try my hand at growing them several times in Leucadia, with much success one year. I was not really planning on growing them but was in Armstrong Garden Center one day and they had artichoke starter plants about 10-inch in height. It was January when I purchased enough plants to fill

my 10-foot-by-30-foot garden on the side of my house and they seemed to thrive on the coastal climate. I watered them liberally and they shot up and started producing nice meaty, medium sized artichokes in early May. When I say meaty, that translates into the nugget of edible goodness on the end of each leave was much larger than

ecently, I observed that the wine consumer was getting washed with wine shows. This was not meant to be a complaint. Wine shows give the visitor an opportunity to sample some superior wines, upwards of 200 choices, along with food pairings, for one nominal admission fee. The realization that big wine shows equal big profits has resonated, especially in Southern California where most days are perfect for outdoor events. There is one wine/food event I want you to keep your eyes and palates on: the Encinitas Rotary and its Wine and Food Festival. Set for June 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the pristine San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas, this event has quickly won the support of the public, like no other of its size. Guests will taste from over 20 wineries, breweries and other beverages. Area restaurants are pitching in with their best menu offerings and all will be serenaded by live music while they bid up auction items. All this makes for a pleasant wine event like most others, however Rich and Sandy Houk, co-chairs of the Encinitas Rotary, want you to know that 19 charities benefit from your attendance at this event. “Last year was the seventh year of a sellout,� Rich declared. “Our festival raised over $120,000 for both children’s and community charities. It was a team effort with all 90 Rotary members volunteering to make it a success,� he added. “Tickets start at $90 and when people buy their tickets, they can choose their favorite charities from our list.

The beneficiary charities need to attend all our meetings and they agree to sell a designated number of tickets. They also help with raffle items to raise additional dollars. It’s a total team effort,� said Rich. The wines offered are a great fit. Most are from the Southern California region. Be sure to pay special attention to a favorite of mine this year, the Coomber Family Ranch wines. Skip Coomber has made a high-end style of wine, with Pinor Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. These wines compete with any I’ve tasted. To purchase tickets for the Encinitas festival, go to Enjoy the festival and help a charity.

Descend into a space unlike any other. Choose from over 480 of the ďŹ nest wines from Napa Valley, Sonoma, France, Italy, and Australia. Then enjoy ďŹ ne Mediterranean cuisine with an Italian air prepared by Chef Luciano Cibelli. Also experience San Diego County’s only underground wine cave. Excitement. Elegance. Style. You’ll discover it all at Pala Casino Spa and Resort.

For Licosati, he felt there was still a lot of opportunity for improvement in terms of voter registration.

At first, Fran thought it was a joke, then checked with the state’s film commission. These guys were for real. “I guess they liked the location. It’s easy to block off the street here.” Only the exterior of the Padilla home was used, including the pool scenes. Initially, the director wanted to cover it, but writers insisted on working it into the script (think teddy bear’s floating

He conveyed to his fellow members that this could significantly help property values while attracting a new group of residents. Licosati went on to say that so many residents, including him, have a home office. The need for technol-

ogy and internet services is incredibly important for them and to their children who require instructional material located online. And from a public safety standpoint, he said, knowing about fires and other emergencies is done through Internet feed and should be accessed by all. The idea of a fiber optic network would be an enormous asset to the community, Licosati said. He ended his speech by saying his goal was to, “preserve and enhance the great community that they have.”

a typical artichoke. I had about 15 plants and all of them were producing three to five artichokes each so for about a month we had fresh artichokes off the plant about every other day. Needless to day, with this bountiful harvest I ended up getting very creative in my preparation and to this day, one recipe still stands out as one that I will never tire of and a sure crowd pleaser. The formal name for the dish is Roasted Corn and Applewood Bacon Stuffed Artichokes. Do I have your attention yet? If not, read on because there is much more to this recipe and it only gets better. I’m going to create this recipe for two people so adjust accordingly for more and I really don’t do a lot of measuring, it’s more of an instinctive preparation. First off, pull out your best, offset serrated knife and cut off the top quarter of the artichoke. Then cut it down the middle vertically so you have two even halves, or as even as you can get them. Bring a large pot of water with some chicken stock, salt and pepper, and a mix of dried herbs to a boil. I tend to stick with the Italian blend of herbs with this dish. While the halved artichokes are cooking, that’s the time to start your grill. I prefer charcoal and wood mix but a gas grill would work fine too. This is also the time to start the risotto by cooking the Arborio rice in olive

oil with a handful of finely diced onion for about three to five minutes then start adding your white wine and chicken stock as needed. Risotto requires regular stirring and adding of stock so keep that in mind as you start the applewood bacon in the frying pan. I cut it up with some sharp kitchen scissors then when it’s almost done I add the corn either cut from an ear or Trader Joes roasted corn that is already seasoned. For two people I’d go with eight slices of bacon and half a bag of corn or two ears. You want to have left over risotto for your morning after risotto cakes so that usually translates into about half a bag or box. Just before the risotto reaches that perfect al dente consistency, which entails a lot of tasting to ensure, add the bacon and corn then cook and stir for another five minutes while you drain the artichokes. The leaves should come off the choke with a slight tug and the edible nugget on the leave should be firm enough for five minutes on the grill and finished in a broiler. At this point, add whipping cream to the risotto to your desired consistency and turn it off. A small, serrated steak knife works perfectly to scoop out the inedible center of the artichoke by cutting right along the top of the heart. It should be cooked enough that the center part just slides out. Season the artichokes with salt and pepper and give them a nice

char on both sides of your hot grill. While they are on the grill, grate your favorite dry Italian cheese like a Pecorino or Romano or Parmesan into a nice fluffy pile. Take the artichokes off the grill and put the empty cavity up on a foil lined cookie sheet and then overstuff them with the risotto. You should have risotto in and around the artichokes, covering the pan. Sprinkle a liberal amount of the grated cheese over the entire pan of risotto and place it in your oven or toaster oven pre-heated to broil. Cook until the top is golden brown and there you go. I’ve done this dish with a nice steak or piece of fish but I’ve also done it solo as you have your meat, veggie and starch in the risotto and the artichoke. Next morning, form the left over risotto into small cakes and fry on each side until crispy brown and top with two eggs cooked to your liking. Once again, the bacon in the risotto provides the meaty goodness and well, I enjoy that as much as the dinner the night before. If you have specific questions on the preparation of this, please feel free to shoot me an email and I would be happy to help.

Black not the reason the Padres are blue sports talk jay paris The colors of the baseball season are abounding. While some regions embrace the changing of the leaves, we get the switching of the hues by eyeing the local nine. Just look to the Padres for your clue. May Gray is here and a peek outside says so. But it says here the month known for gloom won’t include San Diego manager Bud Black getting his pink slip. Although 50 shades of gray might explain Black’s hair and you’ll see, too, the next time he doffs his cap. What’s shaking to make

the dark roots scram? The Padres, guess what, still play like the Padres on occasion — Black’s locks prove it. You know that headscratchin’ bunch we’ve come to know and love — or curse. It can be maddeningly inconsistent on offense and — something new this year — the pitching is pedestrian. But this season wasn’t going to be a walk in the Petco Park no matter how much magic general manager A.J. Preller performed. Even with the Encinitas resident pulling rabbits from out of a hat during a hectic offseason, no whiz can make his squad go bagel — as in 162-0. So the Padres are under .500 after 46 games. Not long ago, that mark would have Rancho Santa Fe’s Black worthy of manager of the year consideration. Instead, some fans are balking that Black’s ninth season isn’t one easy stroll to

the playoffs. You do remember where the Padres hang, right? If any baseball boosters are cognizant about the pitfalls of locations — how much did you pay for that cramped condo? — it should be the Padres’ faithful. The Padres reside in the National League West and that ain’t the fixer-upper neighborhood. The Dodgers won the division last year and celebrated by adding $200 zillion to their payroll — we’re kidding — maybe. The Giants won three World Series in five years. Manager Bruce Bochy can only make a peace sign with available fingers minus jewelry. The Diamondbacks are scrappy. The Rockies, we give you, are something that rhymes with scrappy. It’s understandable Padres fans are frustrated as their patience ran out about two owners ago.

But Black is the glue that has held this floundering squad’s head above water when the floods arrived. Now that sunshine and dry land surface, many want to send him packing. “That would be crazy,’’ Cubs skipper Joe Maddon said, who was in town for a series last week. “Pepe is the best!” Pepe? “We were coaching with the Angels and Pepe was telling me about once being the winning pitcher in the Caribbean League World Series,’’ Maddon added. “I said, ‘Man, the headline that day must have read: ‘Bud Negro wins the title.’’’ Black, who was on the 2002 Angels staff with Maddon that won the World Series, shook his head. “The translation of my name down there became ‘“Pepe Negro,’’’ Black said, keen that we’d been speaking

to Maddon. Maddon, as usual, howled. “So we started calling him ‘Pepe’ and that is how the legend was born,’’ Maddon said. Maddon thinks the world of Black and that opinion carries the day around the major leagues. Chase Black away if you must, but look no further than Bochy of what happens when a good baseball man slips away. “Get rid of Pepe?’’ an incredulous Maddon said. “That wouldn’t be very smart.’’ In more colorful language, Maddon thought of Pepe being punked and basically said: “Don’t go there, amigo.” We agree. The Padres should retain their manager and that’s as plain as Black and white. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@ Follow him on Twitter at jparis_sports.
