Rancho Days

GLIMPSE By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The festivities in the Village have been in full swing all week. And more fun is to be had. On Oct. 8, the RSF Association Taco Fest had a turnout of more than 150 guests in its quaint patio setting. Everyone enjoyed a delectable menu of beef and chicken tacos freshly prepared on site, with must-have side dishes of beans, rice, guacamole and multicolor tortilla chips. Skip Cox of “Cash on Demand,” was on hand for live Country music. From there, many attendees took a stroll up the gentle hill to The Country

Friends and The Prestige Realty Group, at the corner of El Tordo and Avenida de Acacias. Both share a courtyard which offered an array of savory sweets to satisfy any dessert palate. Visitors had the opportunity to relax in the courtyard and then visit the Country Friends Consignment Shop. The RSF Association sponsored the Taco Fest while The Country Friends and The Prestige Realty Group supported its desserts and refreshments event for the afternoon. Please visit for more Rancho Days activities.

Paying it forward through the love of golf By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — For many, the game of golf becomes a lifestyle. In Rancho Santa Fe, this lifestyle transcends to residents who have volunteered their time in making the game enjoyable not only for their community, but to children who may not have otherwise been afforded such an opportunity. There are many RSF individuals behind this philanthropic curtain. And one is Ken Bien. Having served as President of the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club during 2000 to 2002, Bien helped develop the “short game practice area,” in tandem with the $3.6 million golf course renovation. In the golf world, Bien is the Vice President of the California Golf Association, current President of the Southern California Golf Association, and former co-chair of the 2006 USGA Junior Amateur Championship, which was held at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. Rancho Santa Fe is rich with golf history. “Golf in Rancho San-

ta Fe began with the golf club being developed by the Santa Fe Land Improvement Company in the late 1920s with architect, Max Behr, who was a close friend of Dr. Alester MacKensie, the famed golf course architect,” Bien said. “The course became

famous with the Bing Crosby Invitational Pro-Am in the Depression years when the course hosted 6 Crosby Pro-Ams from 1937-1942. Since then, the course has hosted the San Diego Open in 1954 won by member Gene Littler who at that time was the USGA Ama-

teur Champion,” he said. Bien continued, “The 2000 and 2014 SCGA Amateur Championship, 2006 USGA Junior Championship, 2008 California Amateur Championship and many USGA and SCGA Championship Qualifiers have been held at the Golf Club.” Bien wants people to know the course hosting these prestigious championships is a testament to its ability to assess skills, while challenging those who compete at the highest level in amateur golf. In his younger years, while being raised in the Kansas City area, golf changed Bien’s life. He said if it weren’t for golf, he probably wouldn’t live in RSF. His adeptness in golf paved the way to a college scholarship. “Junior golf provided me the life skills necessary to achieve my life and professional goals. My success in the game during my youth provided me with these attributes,” he said. It’s this very reason why “giving back” to chilTURN TO GOLF ON 19

REGION — With the ongoing drought extending further into the year, the fuel moisture in the North County is at its lowest level seen since the recording of fuel moistures have begun, explained Mike Gibbs, deputy fire chief of the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District. “And that’s repre-

sentative throughout the state,” he said. Until there’s any significant rain to bring those moisture levels up, Gibbs said we are in a position to have large fires all the way until that point in time. Staring at the highrisk potential for more wildfires this year, there TURN TO HELICOPTER ON 19

Rejuvenate Your Body! And Return to What You Love to Do Low Level Laser… Naturally Enhances Health & Wellness Did you know that most light in proper doses improves health and wellness by enhancing your body’s ability to heal and replenish? For example. Sunlight in healthy moderations gives you energy, warmth and creates a photostimulation effect internally that promotes natural restoration. It empowers your body to work FOR YOU and is scientifically proven to increase hormone production, reduce pain, lower blood sugar (diabetes), eliminate toxins and stimulate your immune system. And now you can initiate that same “cellular” healing power through low level laser therapy—safely from your own home. It works to stimulate and fuel your body’s natural healing process, similar to sunlight. It’s 100% safe, effective and FDA approved. Low Level Lasers Engage Your Body at the Cellular Level You learned it in school—your body is composed of cells and atoms. And those cells need energy to remain healthy. So when you’re sick or injured, it means your cells are sick and injured too. And their energy level is reduced to a sick, ailing state. And this is exactly where the Low Level Laser works—at the cellular and atomic level. Low level laser therapy enhances your body’s ability to carry electrons that stimulate and re-energize sick, injured, and damaged cells. And it helps improve cell permeability, which means your cells are better able to channel the nutrients and material they need for health. Low Level Lasers Trigger Natural Healing Medications and surgeries are invasive. They may introduce infections and other complications while medications can cause allergic reactions and produce side effects that require additional medications as counter measures. And all the while add more toxins to your body that bring a whole different set of problems. Low Level Lasers naturally stimulate your body to empower itself by engaging your immune system and energizing your cells to heal themselves. They work WITH your body—not against it. Low Level Lasers Are Safe For Home Use You don’t need to special training to use low level lasers. They are perfectly safe to use in the comfort of your home. Whether it’s a nagging pain from overuse or a more serious medical condition, Low Level Lasers promote relief, healing and overall improved health.

And they can be focused specifically on the area where you need it most for pinpoint effectiveness—back, neck, hands, knees—anywhere you suffer pain and injury, which is a cell problem. So if you suffer from… • Back/neck/joint pain • Tendonitis • Diabetes • Arthritis/Rheumatism • Fibromyalgia • And more

Why Six Californias failed: It’s a lousy idea California Focus By Thomas D. Elias There is little doubt about why the putative “Six Californias” ballot initiative that Silicon Valley billionaire Tim Draper hoped to put on the 2016 ballot failed: It was and is a terrible idea. This measure appeared to be a shoo-in to make the next ballot for which it was eligible. Draper had almost limitless funds and put petition circulators at thousands of storefront doorways in the present California. The going rate paid to circulators can run upwards of $5 per valid signature. Draper put $5.2 million behind his measure to fracture the nation’s largest existing state. And yet, it failed miserably. It was the worst failure in the modern era for any proposed citizen initiative with respectable financial support. Draper needed 807,615 valid voter signatures to get his measure onto the ballot. He submitted more than 1 million in June, and it became almost a foregone conclusion that his measure would qualify. But when county election officials around the state reviewed signatures at random to see how many were valid, they concluded that only about 750,000 were really those of registered voters, the rest coming mostly from non-registered folks stopped by the circulators who signed petitions just to end the pestering. If the reviewers’ projection had come within 15,000 of the required number, Draper would have gotten an automatic canvass of all signatures. But that won’t happen now. Why did the entrepreneur fall short? The best guess here is that many

annoyed store customers accosted by circulators had seen or read a little about the idea and realized it was no good. So — in a resounding confirmation of the merits of the initiative process — many refused to sign. And the idea really does — did — stink. Imagine for a moment what the bidding for Tesla Motors’ new lithium ion “gigafactory” might have been like if six Californias and not just one had been involved in the competition. As it is,

Anyone who thinks it’s tough to get water policy agreements from one Legislature would suddenly be faced with six.

Nevada will pay a bribe of about $1.35 billion for the privilege of hosting this facility near Reno. What might the proposed state of Central California, home to the existing California’s proposed location in Stockton, have offered? If six Californias had become reality, Central California would have begun as America’s poorest state. Had its new officials topped Nevada’s bid and offered more than the $78,000 the Silver State will pay for each new job Tesla creates or spawns, it would be even poorer. What might West California, home to Los Angeles, have bid? Or the desert-dominated South California? That’s just one example of how each of these regions becoming a separate state could have hurt them all. The reality is that Draper’s plan to fragment California — and he says he’s not giving up — is one of the goofiest, dopiest ideas ever seen in a state known

for nutty schemes. Draper says he’s motivated by a belief that the existing California is “ungovernable.” But he wants to create six sets of bureaucracies where now there is one. They wouldn’t necessarily have identical regulations, and there’s no guarantee any or all would enjoy the property tax protections of the existing Proposition 13. Or the clean drinking water assured under Proposition 65. Or the low auto insurance rates ensured by Proposition 108. Each new state would set its own rules, without regard to the others. So what could be built in the Los Angeles County city of Pomona might not be legal in nearby Chino, in San Bernardino County, for just one example. There would also be the state of Jefferson, comprising a slew of counties in California’s northernmost region. This one would not have even one University of California campus, which could leave residents paying $36,000 a year in tuition if they attend a UC. Anyone who thinks it’s tough to get water policy agreements from one Legislature would suddenly be faced with six. Good luck. How would any of this make the land area that’s now California easier to governable? But Californians won’t be facing these potential problems and a lot of others anytime soon, because many had the good sense not to sign. Which is itself a sign that despite its many critics, the initiative system actually can work very well.

RE: Recycled water (In response to Coast News Inland Edition article by Ellen Wright, Recycled water project underway, Vol. 28, Sept. 26, 2014, page 1). Escondido Water Director Mr. McKinney expressed concern about the sodium content of water that adversely affects avocado trees. Neither sodium nor fluoride belongs in fresh pristine drinking water. But since 2005, sodium fluoride has been added into Escondido water and since 2007 into Metropolitan Water. He has written his belief that fluoride is a “food” but admitted that the fluorosilicic acid source for fluoride needs to be neutralized with sodium hydroxide. This contributes to the total sodium content that became harmful to the trees in the first place. He now wants to use wastewater run through reverse osmosis for agriculture to help solve the problem. RO does remove fluoride and sodium, but is he planning to re-fluoridate the water a second time, after it’s de-fluoridated with RO, because he believes fluoride is a food? Or is he beginning to understand that fluoride is a toxic calcium chelator and that the sodium contributes to harming avocados? He also plans to use RO wastewater for drinking water. The safety of such water of course is entirely dependent on the source of waste used as starting material, because RO does not remove all chemical contaminants. For example, RO is useless at removing tritium water, herbicides, and many small organic molecules.

Operation Game On founder honored By Bianca Kaplanek

RANCHO SANTA FE — A Rancho Santa Fe man who founded a golf program to help wounded warriors return “to a somewhat normal life” recently received a U.S. flag that flew over the headquarters of the Regional Command Southwest and Marine Expeditionary Brigade aboard Camp Leatherneck in the Helmand province of Afghanistan this past Sept. 11. Brig. Gen. Daniel D. Yoo honored Tony Perez with the flag, which was flown for Perez as part of a ceremony to commemorate the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on this country. “What can I say but that I am very moved and (it) immediately brought me to tears,” Perez said. “The flag will forever remind me of those that paid the ultimate price. “And for those that survived, it is my honor to serve those that allowed OGO to be a part of their rehabilitation to get back to a somewhat normal life through golf,” he added. Perez prefers not to be lauded for his efforts, insisting servicemen and women, especially those wounded in action, are the “real heroes.” “But this special flag is one that I will always cherish for the rest of my life,” he said. In 2008, Perez started Operation Game On, a program for severely injured soldiers undergoing rehabilitation at the Naval Medical Center San Diego and Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton and Vietnam War veterans. Participants receive free golf lessons from PGA-certified instructors at the Del Mar Golf Center and a professional fitting session by the staff at The Kingdom at TaylorMade Golf. They also receive custom-fitted equipment at no cost to them, the hospital or the military. To help cover costs, Perez holds a golf tournament that in recent years has raised about $75,000 annually.

Parent speaks to RSF School Board about language program By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — During a RSF School Board meeting, Linda Leong, a parent whose child attends the campus had an opportunity to speak to the board of trustees. She shared a few minutes to convey the importance of language in the classroom. Already on the agenda, board president, Richard Burdge, invited Leong to speak in open session regarding “Foreign Language Instruction for K-5.” While thanking the board for their time, Leong formally requested all to consider a deeper look into the program. According to Leong,

middle school was afforded foreign language which included Spanish and Mandarin. Leong has brought up the subject before over the last number of years, but because the demographics have changed, she believed the interest in foreign language has increased with its young families. Leong said although her youngest son is in fifth grade and probably won’t benefit from her request, hopefully, other families would. “So far, I’ve collected over 60 signatures in support of this,” she said, adding how those numbers were anticipated to climb even higher. While Leong has

broached the subject before she has heard two valid objections from the elementary school. One of which included there was just no extra time during the day. “I would agree because we do have a packed schedule for our children,” she said. “However, we can create it.” Leong suggested possibly having the language course first thing in the morning before school starts, or perhaps, after school. Another thought was having a small language class during lunchtime, which was described as a lunch club. The other objection Leong has heard in the past referred to not having enough finances.

“I think we can find the money if the school board is looking at the Garden Club to purchase,” she said, adding how the district is also receiving monies for undergoing energy efficient projects. Leong suggested surveying parents and identifying which ones were already spending their own private funds for language lessons. She went on to say that possibly they could identify those families and maybe bring in those dollars to the Education Foundation. Following Leong’s open session presentation, Superintendent Lindy Delaney invited her to schedule a meeting at her office so they could talk. “I think there’s a mis-

nomer about money, what’s capital and operational and what can we use,” said Delaney, thanking Leong for her comments. “I welcome a conversation at least to make sure we’re all clear about what we’re asking; and, sometimes that’s the best way to get the information is just to come in.” Toward the end of the meeting, board member, Todd Frank, asked Delaney when was the last time the district surveyed parents in terms of foreign language. Delaney said to the best of her recollection it was about six years ago. Frank thought it may be a good idea to start asking parents general questions again in terms of the different departments.

Delaney said she would put this survey as a board agenda item for November. She continued, “I think we have to be very thoughtful in the survey and how we proceed, and I would probably shoot for a survey in January. The holidays tend to be busy.” Board member, Tyler Seltzer was in support of Frank’s idea. However, he advised the survey should be specific as possible. Seltzer said a simple question such as, “Are you in favor of foreign language K thru 5?” may be too vague. Getting into the details was important, such as discovering if parents would want foreign language for their children weekly or daily, he said.

Transcripts for students, alumni now free By Aaron Burgin

REGION — Students in the San Dieguito Union High School District who used to spend money on fees for obtaining official transcripts are getting some relief. The school district recently announced that students and alumni can obtain transcripts free of charge as part of a uniform district-wide policy. Previously, transcript policies varied on each campus. San Dieguito High, for example, did not charge for transcripts. Torrey Pines, however, charged $5 for students to obtain transcripts. At other campuses, students and alumni could obtain the first two transcripts for free, but paid a fee for the subsequent transcript requests. “There wasn’t any con-

sistency from campus to campus,” said Rick Grove, the district’s associate superintendent of educa-

tional services. “We had parents ask a very valid question as to why there wasn’t any consistency with the transcript policy and after review, we decided this would be the best way to go.” The state’s constitution allows for schools to charge students only for the direct cost associated with providing a copy of the transcript. Grove said he believed the fees that were being charged were not violating the law. He said he believed each of the schools had enacted varying policies as a result of budget cuts and an increased amount of workload associated with producing transcripts. “I think what you saw was that over time, students have gone from applying to maybe a handful of colleges to as many as 20 or 30 colleges, and some of the staff were feeling overwhelmed, especially in the

light of budget cuts,” Grove said. Grove said he believes making all transcript requests free will alleviate staff from having to keep count of the number of requests an individual student has made, which can be burdensome given the number of students asking for copies. “The staff time associated with keeping count could be better used elsewhere,” he said. Students and alumni wishing to obtain free official transcripts must order them on campus. Alumni who purchase transcripts through the district’s contract third-party transcript provider Parchment can purchase the first two copies for free, but will be assessed a fee for subsequent ones. Unofficial transcripts are free of charge both on campus and through Parchment, Grove said.

Alzheimer’s Association returns to RSF Library for another series By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — For a caregiver, family member or friend who is struggling in communicating with a loved one who has memory loss, the Alzheimer’s Association will be presenting its next complimentary series, “Compassionate Communication,” at the RSF Library Oct. 16. Lynn Mullowney, associate director of Major and Planned Giving at the Alzheimer’s Association, described its Compassionate Communication curriculum as one of the most powerful tools available in caring for someone with a memory loss disorder. When communicating with a person who has Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, she said, all the normal rules of engagement change. “Compassionate Communication rests on one core tenet: You can’t control their memory loss, only your reaction to it,” she said. “Learning the art of Compassionate Communication helps caregivers and family members understand how to respond to

frequently frustrating situations.” Mullowney shared one common behavior is repetition. She wants people to know that a person with Alzheimer's may do or say something over and over, such as repeating a word, question or activity. Mullowney understands how this behavior may cause tension for the caregiver, but it’s important to be reminded that in these instances, a person is seeking comfort, familiarity, and above all, security. The disease is causing the behavior, she said, not the person. “In addition to affecting memory and other cognitive skills, Alzheimer’s disease often affects the way people feel and act. Many people find the behavior changes caused by Alzheimer’s to be the most challenging and distressing effect of the disease,” she said. Mullowney continued, “The chief cause of behavioral symptoms is the progressive deterioration of brain cells.” She also pointed out that certain types of med-

ications, medical issues or environmental factors may exacerbate those symptoms. In the early stages, Mullowney said, individuals with Alzheimer’s disease may undergo changes such as depression, anxiety, and irritability. As the disease progress-

es, other levels of behavior and personality changes may include, agitation, anger, verbal or physical outbursts, sleep disturbances, restlessness, and emotional distress. While the disease advances, the caregiver’s approach must be altered, as well.

Cindy Schaub gives teary goodbye By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — During a recent RSF School District board meeting Superintendent Lindy Delaney, invited her former assistant superintendent, Cindy Schaub, to give her official farewell to the board. Schaub accepted the position of assistant superintendent of educational leadership at the South Bay Union School District. Schaub served the RSF School District for the last 10 years. “We wish Cindy the best of luck,” Delaney said. “We miss her and she knows that, but she’s not that far, and we’ve called her a few times.” Schaub told the board that she felt bad her job transition happened in such a way that she wasn’t able to come back to say “thank you” and “good bye” at the last board meeting. Her new district had their board meeting on the very same day so there was a conflict. As Schaub continued to speak, she became emotional. “This is so hard. I am not good at this. I always get a little teary,” she said. Schaub wanted the board to know how impressed she was with their stability. In the past 10 years, she never wondered if they’d ever have support from the board in doing something. “We knew that you were so fully committed to doing what’s best for students; and, that’s a nice place to be when you’re an administrator in the district,” she said. She knew that many members of the board were aware that she had a “calling.”

South, many years ago, just after desegregation. Working in that particular district all those years ago taught her a lesson about those students, families and their particular needs. Since that time, she always had a desire to go back to those in need. And then the opportunity arrived with the South Bay Union School District. “There was a moral calling,” said Schaub, choking up a little. “My ten Cindy Schaub givers her farewell as years here have not just imassistant superintendent after 10 pacted the kids in this disyears with the RSF School District.

For a couple years, she was deciding to either end her career or spend the last third of it with students of higher need. Schaub said she started her career in a district that had about 50 percent high wealth and the other half with very high poverty. She worked in the

trict, but they are making a difference for 8,500 kids that deserve just as high quality of education as the kids here do.” Schaub went on to say that for her to be able to take that gift to another district and know what really stellar teaching already looks like, so many other children will benefit from it. “Thank you for allowing us to do that work while I was here, and now, for me being able to take that somewhere else,” Schaub said.

“Changes in behavior can be challenging, but we have resources to help families and caregivers through each stage of the disease,” she said. “By consistently using Compassionate Communication, caregivers can significantly improve the quality of life for all involved.” During the class series, attendees will be given tips for effective communication. For Mullowney, asking a person with Alzheimer’s to remember is like asking a blind person to see. “Reminders are rarely kind. They tell the person how disabled they are –– over and over again,” she said. “Refer only to the present or the future.” In example, Mullowney pointed out if the loved one is hungry, a caregiver should refrain from reminding them they ate an hour ago. Instead, plan a time for a light snack within that hour. Attendees will also be taught what to do when asked a question repeatedly. “Graciously respond as

if it’s the first time. Some days they seem normal, but they’re not. They live in a different reality. Reminders won’t bring them into yours,” she said. During this educational series, also highlighted will be the “Do’s and Don’ts” of Compassionate Communication. Mullowney said that Alzheimer’s is on the rise and its being called the epidemic of this generation. “It threatens to double by 2030, to over 120,000 people in our area alone and over 10 million throughout the country. Even in the face of such large numbers, Alzheimer’s is an incredibly isolating disease and people need to know that we are here to help,” she said. While the Oct. 16 free venue will be held at the RSF Library at 4:30 to 6:30 pm, Vista Gardens, a Memory Care Community, will provide refreshments. Please RSVP to (858) 4924400. The next series, “The Latest In Alzheimer’s Research” is slated for Nov. 13. Call (800) 272-3900 for details.

How good wines can enhance your life hit the road e’louise ondash


he temperature is in the triple digits, but our van has AC and our guide, Kurt Kummerfeldt, thankfully has way more energy than his eight passengers. We are on a six-hour winery tour with Stagecoach Co. Wine Tours that will take us to four wineries on the west end of the Santa Ynez Valley. Located north of Santa Barbara, the valley is perhaps best known as the setting for the movie "Sideways." Actors and production crew spent 10 weeks there filming in 2003; the movie was released the next year. As longtime fans, it's a happy coincidence that this first week in October marks the 10th anniversary of the

Kurt Kummerfeldt, a tour guide with Stagecoach Co. Wine Tours in Santa Ynez Valley, explains the pros and cons of various types of corks and screw tops. He is a wealth of information on the art of making wine, local wineries and vineyards, and food-and-wine pairing.

Dr. Jack Lockwood offers visitors at Bella Cavalli Farms & Vineyard a sample of its unique white cabernet. The vineyard makes only 1,600 cases a year, and tastings are by appointment only. Bella Cavalli in Italian translates as “beautiful horses.” The vineyard’s owners also raise and board show horses. Photos by Jerry Ondash

film’s debut. “This is a tour for people who enjoy wine, so there’s no room for snobbery here,” declares Kummerfeldt, a member of the Guild of Sommeliers. “Basically, we want to showcase what we have here in the Santa Ynez Valley and how good wines can enhance your life.” We agree that this sounds like a good plan. “You also should know that no one will be insulted if you choose to use the dump bucket during the tastings,” our guide adds. "If you drink everything you taste today, you will have consumed a bottleand-a-quarter." Judging by the passengers' reactions, this doesn't seem to be bad news. Stagecoach selects their destination wineries based on “whether the staff likes the wine, customer service, the ambiance and ultimately, guests’ feedback,” Kummerfeldt explains. Size matters, too. Stagecoach likes to focus on the smaller wineries that produce just a few thousand cases a year

Actress Virginia Madsen (left), who starred in the 2004 film “Sideways,” chats with photographer Merie Weismiller Wallace, who took the stills during the filming of the movie. They met Oct. 4 at the Elverhoj Museum of History and Art in Solvang where a collection of Wallace’s photos are on exhibit through Nov. 2. The exhibit marks the 10th anniversary of “Sideways,” which has attracted many visitors to the Santa Ynez Valley where the movie was filmed.

(some vineyards produce up to 250,000 cases), and there is no shortage of choices. In 1993, there were 24 tasting rooms in the valley; today there are 220. Part of the reason for the growth is a change in the business model. “You don’t have to buy land, buy equipment, plant vines and wait 10 years to bottle the wine,” Kummerfeldt explains. “Now you can buy fruit from a vineyard and use their equipment or a custom crush facility for $10,000, and within a year, you can be selling wine.” We visit Mosby and Dierberg tasting rooms, enjoy a gourmet box lunch, then head to Bella Cavalli, a private winery behind electric gates. Visits are by reservation only. Like a scene from a Tuscan family vineyard, we settle into chairs around oversized wooden picnic tables thankfully situated under large shade trees. Dr. Jack Lockwood, a retired obstetrician and father of the owner, recounts stories of his military days in between sampling six wines. Soon everyone is contributing tales about their parents' military service. Kummerfeldt finally extricates us from this bucolic setting, and it’s no surprise that we are behind schedule for our last tasting at the Loring Wine Co. Later we visit the Elverhoj Museum of History and Art in Solvang to see the exhibit of photos taken by Merie Weismiller Wallace during the filming of “Sideways.” (The film received five Academy Award nominations; it won for best screenplay.) We are surprised to see one of the

Sales of pinot increased by as much as 45 percent. “I moved here in 2005 and nobody I know ever thought that a teeny independent movie would have this kind of effect,” Kummerfeldt says.

More than 50 indoor and beach, nationally and internationally recognized champs, primarily from the 1970s and 1980s, had a ball Sept. 28, hosted by ArtBeat artist Patty Waite and her volleyball standout husband Stu Waite. The group included Dennis Hare and George Stepanof, recent inductees of the new Beach Volleyball Hall of Fame; Jack Henn, coach of the 1973 Division I National Champion SDSU team, who also participated in the 1968 Olympics; Frank Kingery, 1966 member of the World Championship in Czechoslovakia; Duncan McFarland, MVP of SDSU’s 1973 championship team; and Mark Warner, indoor coach of the year for SDSU’s 1995 women’s team, which won the school’s first Western Athletic Conference Championship.

Chargers reeling off wins, won’t look too far ahead By Tony Cagala

SAN DIEGO — Raiders quarterback Derek Carr said on Sunday after their game against the Chargers that he completes that throw — a deep pass to the left corner of the field — 100 out of 100 times. And when asked at a press conference on Monday, Chargers rookie cornerback Jason Verrett, who intercepted that pass from Carr during the dwindling minutes of the fourth quarter, how often he makes that catch — he said100 out of 100 times. That interception — a leaping grab over the Raiders receiver and the plant-

ing of both of his feet inbounds — all but sealed the 31-28 win for the Chargers against their division rivals the Raiders in Oakland on Sunday. The interception marked the first of Verrett’s

career. It was a “tough” win, said veteran receiver Malcolm Floyd. It was tough, he said because the Raiders threw some schemes at them they weren’t expecting, and they started off fast. But a lot of veterans stepped up, as well as some young guys who are play-

ing like veterans, including rookie running back Branden Oliver and Verrett, said Floyd. Floyd said he knew Verrett’s play at the end was huge, because if the Raiders intended receiver Brice Butler made the catch, the Chargers would’ve been in trouble. “That was (Sebastian) Janikowski’s range right there, and if we didn’t get that pick we were in trouble of going into overtime,” Floyd said. “The most important thing in the fourth quarter, we needed a big stop, we got the three and out and then we created the turnover,” said head coach Mike McCoy. “The great thing during that game, too, at the fourth quarter there was no panic,” McCoy said. “We had a lot of confidence that we would find a way to win it and that’s what we did.” The Chargers are entering week seven having won five in a row. They’ll be facing another division rival in the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium. But Floyd said the locker room isn’t keeping track of the win streak. “I think we just got to continue to focus and not lose track of what we’ve been doing as a team. We’ve been doing a good job of going in every game focused on that week, the schemes, breaking down other teams and game film, and that’s all been carrying over into the game,” said Floyd. “We can’t look too far ahead,” adding, “we have to take it one week at a time.”

He was rockin’ a nifty mustache, sporting sunglasses and his hair color matched his last name. Bud Black was rolling through Kansas City’s streets, back then, and my what a long way from Rancho Santa Fe. “I remember the parade because the turnout was so great,’’ Black said from his RSF home. “That and we had a minimal amount of sleep.’’ There’s a buzz in the baseball playoffs thanks to the Kansas City Royals as they open Friday against the Orioles in the American League Championship Series. Not since 1985 did the postseason include the Royals, the same year of their only world title. A peek at Royals games in K.C. come with an appreciation of an exuberant fan base going bonkers. “It’s been nearly 30 years,’’ Black said. “That is a great sports town that is very loyal to its teams.’’ Black knows. As a 28-year-old lefthander he started on opening day and 32 other games for the ‘85 Royals, following up his 17-12 season with a 10-15 mark. Bret Saberhagen was at the top of the rotation, one of four pitchers, including Black, throwing 200 innings. Saberhagen was the Cy Young Award winner — Dan Quisenberry, a force as the closer. In ‘85 the Royals were the first team to trail 0-2 and win the World Series. Before that they rallied from a 1-3 deficit for the AL title against the Blue Jays. That squad oozed with camaraderie and there’s no doubt something special happens whenever KC-85 gets together. “Anybody will tell you whether it’s football, basketball, baseball, when you win a world championship that bond that is created, that forms, it never leaves,’’ Black said. “If you’re a pretty close-knit group as it is, that bond is even stronger. To this day, when we see each other, it’s like time has never passed.’’ Black said clocks stop when ex-teammate George Brett enters any room, the team’s leader then and now. “His presence is like a Joe Montana or a Wayne

Gretzky,’’ Black said of the Brett, a Hall of Famer. Brett remained with the Royals as Black’s playing career took him to Cleveland, Toronto, San Francisco and back to Cleveland, ending there in 1995. As a skipper, Black recently got word he’ll return for his ninth season with the Padres. Black longs for the day when the Padres concoct the winning recipe of the current Royals: solid pitching, good defense, situational hitting and savvy base running. It’s not only how K.C. does it on the field, but off it as well. “The Royals have done a nice job out of the draft,’’ Black said, before rattling off numerous core players. “A lot of their guys are homegrown. “They don’t have a really high-priced player, although they did spend a little money on (James) Shields, a frontline pitcher. “But their situation is not unlike ours as far having the younger players produce and theirs have done that. In a division that has star power, the Royals’ model is something that is very similar to what we can do.” Fresh Padres general manager A.J. Preller is bent on getting there. A busy offseason includes rebuilding an offensively deprived roster that negates strong pitching and defense. Preller has one decision behind him in bringing back Black — a good move. If Preller’s keen, maybe the future gets so bright Black reaches for those shades, circa 1985. Black is all in on that. The mustache? Not so much.

WATERBOY, the superior brand of water By Conrad Rios

In this ever changing world, the need for conservation of resources has never been more important in our daily lives, especially those pertinent to maintaining life itself. It is an understatement to say our need for quality water in every aspect of daily life is critical to our existence. Being that water is the most important resource, it’s important to understand the best way to manage our use of water by insuring affordability while maximizing quality for everyday use. As with many things, “quality” is often circumvented when it comes to “affordability,” but in the case of water, many wise consumers have discovered an incredible option that delivers the best of both worlds; a home or business water filtration and conditioning system. The key word is “filtration,” but it’s not as simple as choosing just any of the available systems — by no means do they perform alike. “Our customers are very educated nowadays and they want an environmentally safe water solution that also protects the pipes in their homes, says Elaine Montemarano, general manager for Superior Water, WATERBOY’s parent company. “Salt soften-

ers are becoming obsolete because of the harmful chemicals that are put into our environment. The WATERBOY is all natural and great for the plants and pets. The WATERBOY provides fresh water the way it was meant to be while filtering out the unwanted impurities, both natural and man-made.” The exceptional process is what makes the WATERBOY unique and can be utilized in any setting; single-family households, multi-unit condominium complexes, or within any type of office or commercial facility. The WATERBOY system begins by running in-

coming water through a three stage award winning carbon filtration, internal sediment filter and bacteria static filter. Once completely filtered, the water is conditioned through an industrial 4th stage module that truly sets the WATERBOY apart from the competition. The WATERBOY has a Reversing Industrial Fields Module that conditions the water non-chemically by literally restructuring and realigning the polarity of mineral molecules without removing them from the water, while descaling the existing limescale in the pipes. The end result is a superior quality of water

that tastes great, silkier on the skin, and completely non-corrosive. Clearly, the WATERBOY stands alone in delivering the best quality water affordably with over 17,000 satisfied customers since 1997. One testimonial from research scientist, Dr. Richard Weber, says it all: “In studies I have made evaluating water systems, the one that closely simulates the Earth’s natural filtration process is the WATERBOY from Superior Water. In simple language, it has a means of filtering out bad while sparing the good… In terms of product quality, the WATERBOY stands at the top.”

Shimabukuro: ‘The Hendrix’ of the ukulele By L. Kent Wolgamott

Ukulele is booming. Stores are selling ever more of the four-stringed, guitar-like Hawaiian instruments. Billionaire investor Warren Buffett has taken up the uke. So have musicians like Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, giving it even more visibility. But Jake Shimabukuro, the world’s most famous ukulele player, refuses to take credit for the uke boom. “I have been noticing a growth in popularity, especially among younger and younger people,” Shimabukuro said. “I think it’s absolutely fabulous. I’m just a big fan of the ukulele. When I see more and more people picking it up and enjoying it, it makes me happy. It’s a great instrument and brings joy to so many people. “I don’t take any credit for any of that. I just love playing. I’m just amazed I’m able to be a traveling ukulele player. When I was kid growing up in Hawaii, there weren’t a lot of touring ukulele players out there.” Born in Honolulu, the 37-year-old Shimabukuro is no overnight sensation. He has been a star in his home state and Japan for over a decade. And he’d been playing for close to 20 years before he got noticed there. “I started when I was about four years old,” he said. “My mom was a ukulele player, so I always heard it and there were always ukuleles around. She was my first teacher. She taught me a few chords and I tried to figure out how to play it. I just fell in love with it.” Unlike most kids who start out playing instruments that young, Shimabukuro stuck with it. By his 20s, Shimabukuro was playing around Hawaii, putting out records in Japan, and on his own

label, in Hawaii. Then, in 2006, a YouTube video of him playing George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” went viral, breaking him on the U.S. mainland. “I don’t know who put it up on YouTube,” he said. “But whoever did, I owe them a few dinners.” “Ukulele Weeps,” which has now been viewed more than 12 million times, launched Shimabukuro to places no ukulele player had gone before — touring with Jimmy Buffett, performing on late night and morning TV shows (most recently on “The Today Show” last year), touring the world eight months a year and putting out internationally distributed records. He’s been called the “Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele” for taking the traditional Hawaiian instrument to a new, likely unmatchable dimension. Like Hendrix, his playing transcends genres, incorporating elements of traditional Hawaiian music, jazz, funk, blues, classical and, especially in his cover songs, rock. “I had a lot of different influences growing up and I’ve added a lot more. There’s much out there,” he said. “ I just try to find things that fit together, that fit with how I feel and how the ukulele sounds. I want to make the ukulele something completely different than what you’d expect.” The unexpected is part of what makes Shimabukuro connect, live and on record, and is most often found in his covers of songs from Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Sting’s “Field of Gold.” “They’re just songs I grew up listening to or songs I love or I’ll hear it on the radio and go ‘I think it’ll sound good on the ukuTURN TO SHIMABUKURO ON 19

Rife with glorious animated artistry and solid vocal talents, “The Book of Life” is a delightful Day of the Dead-oriented gem. When it comes to forming your own identity, it’s important to follow your heart, for what better way is there to live your life than to be true to yourself? This is especially true in the case of animation, where the core is the guiding hand that holds everything together; therefore, what’s on the inside affects what’s on the outside. Which is exactly the kind of situation that Manolo Sanchez (Diego Luna), a torero with a guitar and a pair of swords, finds himself in when the path he desires to walk clashes with his father’s expectations. Further complicating matters is the love he feels for Maria (Zoe Saldana), whom his charming friend Joaquin (Channing Tatum) is already wooing. All this is part of a wager between the underworld spirits La Muerte (Kate del Castillo) and Xibalba (Ron Perlman) to determine which man will become Maria’s lover. Before deciding which life he wants to follow, however, Manolo has to embark on a fantastic journey spanning three otherworldly domin- “The Book of Life,” from producer Guillermo Del Toro and director Jorge Gutierrez is an animated feature ions in order to face his with a unique visual style. Image courtesy Twentieth Century Fox and Reel FX deepest insecurities. All it takes is one glance at the face of “The Book of Life” to recognize its inner radiance, powered by a heart blessed with a wonderful pulse. And the simple mention of Guillermo del Toro’s name is reason enough to give it a shot, given his knack for producing quality projects. Such splendor manifests in the form of vibrant animation and striking artwork. Under the lively direction of Jorge Gutierrez, there is this zesty beauty within the settings and character designs that adds to the film’s distinctive personality. And if you think the world of the living is interesting, then you have no idea what imaginative possibilities await you in the three realms of the dead: the Land of the Remembered, the Cave of Souls, and the Land of the Forgotten. From what I’ve seen, the old saying “It’s the heart that counts” perfectly describes the visual style they opted for, and I think Gutierrez and his teams of artists and animators deserve extra points for embracing their creative brilliance to realize the film’s unique appearance. And it is due to their enthusiasm and diligence that the audience gets to participate in an enjoyable folk tale-esque story set against a Day of the Dead backdrop, one that is rich in romance, adventure, and humor.

I also liked the central romantic element — the love triangle involving Manolo, Maria and Joaquin — in terms of how it actually holds your attention and has plenty of amusing and solemn moments to sustain the exciting chemistry among the three.

That throws a lot of people off, especially guitar players.” Those covers, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

Likewise, many RSF residents are avid supporters, he shared. Bien said these two organizations provide the youth of Southern California affordable access to golf courses and skill building opportunities. “The game of golf teaches many of the life skills necessary to be successful in life such as honesty, respect for yourself and others, trust, confidence, etiquette, manners and many other attributes,” he said. “We’re not only providing a venue for Championships, but also in other ways as providing access to the course to youth, providing scholarships to Youth on Course and Pro Kids youth, and encouraging youth to participate in golf,” Bien said. He continued, “For example, Pro Kids Golf was the recipient of the excess proceeds from the 2006 USGA Junior Amateur at Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club of over $200,000.” In 1994, Pro Kids was founded by Ernie Wright, a former player for the San Diego Chargers.

The rest of his set is made up of songs that he writes. “I’ll start with a melody that I hear in my head or a cool chord progression, play it over and over until it evolves into something interesting,” he said. “I always try to base it around some technique or a concept, something I like, that can say ‘this is kind of cool.’“ Shimabukuro’s latest album, 2012’s “Grand Ukulele,” even features a full orchestra. But you won’t hear that on his tours. “I couldn’t afford to bring a full orchestra everywhere,” he said. “I will handed over to his son, Howard Wright. “For my father, golf was the hook at Pro Kids and education was the payoff,” Wright said. According to Wright, a RSF resident, they currently serve 1,600 kids at its Colina Park Golf Course in City Heights, and up to 500 children at its new Oceanside site, Ely Callaway Golf & Learning Center. Its Oceanside Honors Course was presented by TaylorMade. Wright wants people to know that Pro Kids isn’t just about golf. Since its inception, it has endowed nearly $2 million in scholarships. And the list of colleges the children from Pro Kids have attended is quite impressive. The children have earned the right to attend, Wright said, and they have underwritten as much as possible. Majority of the children come from an annual household income of $25,000. In his heart, Wright knows the kids leaving their program are going to be famous, not for their golf skills, but for their career and moral choices. On a day-to-day basis, Wright shared, all Pro Kids are given the opportunity to have academic tutoring, mentoring, life skills coaching, computer lab time, leadership training, college preparation, and more. Wright said that his

Whether I’m playing in Hawaii or Nebraska, I love it.” Shimabukuro generally plays big clubs, theaters or concert halls, which he said are his favorite venues. “I love playing in a concert hall or some place with a good sound system,” he said. “When you’re at home, it’s fun to play acoustically. But it’s such a rush when you’ve got a good sound system behind you and you can crank it up. You feel like a rock star.” That’s fitting for the Hendrix of ukulele. father changed the course of his own life. “My father had a sense of purpose. He was able to impose his will and bend the arc of poverty in our family, and then obviously through creating Pro Kids, trying to build onramps to success for all these other kids, of every color, and every nationality.” Kevin Gigax, executive Director at SCGA Youth on Course, describes their organization as unique, because they are trying to supplement what already happens in junior golf. “Our programs are focused on complimenting local junior programs by creating affordable golf opportunities for kids to practice outside of formal programming,” Gigax said. “The primary way we accomplish this is with the Golf Pass, which gives more than 3,000 kids access to 145 golf facilities during off-peak hours for just $1 to $5.” At the end of the year, Gigax said, it’s estimated that Youth on Course will have supported children playing more than 30,000 games and more than 40,000 buckets of balls. “We also provide educational outings, college golf summits, and other opportunities for kids to practice, play, and advance,” he said.

action by putting water on the fire, there’s a direct impact. “Aerial support helps on every fire, irregardless of terrain. The work that the air tankers do and that the helicopters do directly support the actions that are taking place on the ground on any type of vegetation fire,” he said. The contract SDG&E has with Helistream Aviation, the Costa Mesa-based aviation company which owns the helicopter and whose pilots will operate it, will last through the end of November. Donovan added that SDG&E will reevaluate at the end of the year whether providing these aircraft for firefighting purposes is something they’ll be able to continue to do. In September, SDG&E also contracted for the use of an Erikson Ari-Crane helitanker. Contracting for the helicopters is a costly endeavor, yet the power company and the county

of San Diego have established a Memorandum of Understanding, setting a $300,000 budget for fire season, according to a press release from the power company. SDG&E, the release stated, would cover the cost of operating the helicopters during the first two hours of flight of any new fire, and the county would cover the second two hours of flight. That money would come from the county’s aerial fire protection fund. By having it up here in the North County, obviously it’s closer to incidents, so there’s less flight time coming from Gillespie Field in El Cajon (where the helicopter will be staged on non high fire risk days), Gibbs explained. “It’s not only important for us to meet our mission in the District, but it’s a regional air asset that’s available to the entire county and for that matter, all of North County,” he said.

FRANK & ERNEST by Bob Thaves

Set your sights high. Some sacrifices will have to be made, but better things are waiting for you if you are detailed and earnest. If you make the necessary preparations to launch your ideas, you will achieve your dreams. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don’t follow the crowd. Show off your unique abilities, personality and assets. A charitable agency will benefit from your physical contribution.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Be cautious of what you say to whom. A remark that was meant for one person only may travel through the grapevine, causing you embarrassment or difficulties at work.

THE BORN LOSER by Art & Chip Sansom

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Your capacity to learn will be magnified if you listen to experienced and stimulating individuals. Once you have done your research, you will make informed choices that will be beneficial.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you are attracted to someone in the workplace, be discreet. You must act professionally at all times. Take things slowly until you can totally trust the person you are interested in. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Get out and about today. Your charm is skyrocketing, and you will attract all sorts of favorable attention from the people you encounter. Romance is highlighted, so enjoy it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t be too demanding today. Everyone has troubles, and no one is likely to be sympathetic toward you. Spend some quiet time reflecting upon and tweaking your next move.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will be energized and ready to go. Make use of your enthusiasm and take on as many tasks as you can. You will make a new friend or romantic connection.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Financial gains are imminent. You will need to tread carefully with impatient family members. Remain calm and remember that no one is perfect, including you.

The exhibition will then travel to Riverside Art Museum, April 21 to July 2, 2015. Throughout the course of the journey there have been supporters without whom this exhibition would not have been possible, including Jim Kydd of the Coast News who provided major financial support. Julia Fister, OMA’s Director of Education, has shown her commitment to the project by her endlessly generous contribution of time, energy, and experience. For this California dreamer, the exhibition represents far more than an exploration of the California Dream as creatively interpreted by 54 artists. It is also the manifestation of a lifelong dream in the form of the multifaceted California Dreaming exhibition. A catalog of the complete California Dreaming: An International Portrait of Southern California exhibition is available on Amazon. com.

romantic mid-20th Century notions of the “California Dream.” The perspective and issues within this exhibition refer to a much larger global context of social and economic change in our world today.” California Dreaming, which is OMA’s inaugural venture into international traveling exhibitions, is currently showing in the Palazzo della Provincia of Frosinone, Italy through Oct. 28, 2014. Participating artists and over 100 members of the Italian media and arts community enthusiastically received the exhibition at the October 4 opening in Frosinone. On Oct.24 a delegation from the Oceanside Museum of Art is scheduled to travel from Tuscany to Frosinone to celebrate the exhibition before it returns to the US. California Dreaming will be on exhibit at Oceanside Museum of Art for over three months from Dec. 6, to March 29, 2015. A major public reception will be held at OMA, Dec.6, 2014 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Notes: 1/4 page 4C

It’s not every day that a lifelong dream comes true. During my first visit to Rome at age 18, I vowed that some day I would have more than simple tourism as my reason for returning to the magical land of Italy. An idea was initiated in 2012 by a personal invitation from Alfio Borghese member of the noble family of art patrons dating back to the Italian Renaissance - to partner on an art exchange between Italy and Southern California. I was faced with a daunting challenge: how to carry out this project — which had potential of being grand– with appropriate importance, dignity and scale. Over the past year, Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA) has partnered with me in developing this multi-faceted project, which has matured into California Dreaming: an International Portrait of Southern California — an exhibition of 54 artworks selected by three prominent jurors that will travel to three notable venues before culminating in July 2015. A double exhibition of work by San Diego area artists is scheduled to follow, to be held concurrently at OMA and L Street Fine Art in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. Through multiple calls for entries, artists were invited to explore the celebrated lifestyle, influences, and environs of Southern California while creatively interpreting Southern California’s iconic culture. From 900 submissions, the jury process resulted in California Dreaming: An International Portrait of Southern California — a collection of 54 works by 54 artists from Southern California and beyond illuminating a broad range of perspectives on the California Dream. OMA’s Executive Director Daniel Foster says, “I think this exhibition has been interpreted by the three jurors in a very contemporary and updated manner that directly challenges the nostalgic and

Odd Files Death Cafés address topic that shouldn’t be scary By Chuck Shepherd

By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — It’s been said there are only two certainties in life, one of which most people would prefer to not pay. The other they’d rather not talk about. While the first action is not legally recommended, discussing death is something Encinitas resident Tiffany Fox is hoping to encourage when she hosts her first Death Café Oct. 18. “The goal is to provide a safe, nonjudgmental space to talk about death, something that usually has a negative connotation,” Fox said. Death Café is an international movement created by Jon Underwood, who held the first discussion group in his East London home in September 2011. Since then about 1,150 Death Cafés have formed. According to the website, the objective is “to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” There are no other objectives, themes or agendas. In fact,

Bionic Shoes Police in Japan’s Kyoto Prefecture raided a shoe manufacturer in July and commandeered a list of about 1,500 purchasers of the company’s signature “tosatsu shoes” — shoes with built-in cameras. Investigators have begun visiting the purchasers at home to ask that they hand in the shoes (but, out of fairness, said they would not cause trouble for customers who could produce a legitimate reason for needing to take photographs and video by pointing their shoe at something). The seller was charged with “aiding voyeurism” and fined the equivalent of about $4,500 under a nuisance-prevention law. The Entrepreneurial Spirit Doris Carvalho of Tampa, Florida, is raising venture capital to expand her hobby of crafting high-end handbags from groomed, recycled dog hair (two pounds’ worth for each bag). With investors, she could lower her costs and the $1,000 price tag, since it now takes 50 hours’ labor to make the yarn for her haute couture accessory. Among the suggestions of the Brisbane, Australia, company Pets Eternal for honoring a deceased pet (made to a reporter in September): keeping a whisker or tooth or lock of hair, or having the remains made into jewelry or mixed with ink to make a tattoo. Overlooked was a new project by the Houston space-flight company Celestis, known for blasting human ashes into orbit (most famously those of “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry). Celestis, working with a California company, will soon offer to shoot pets’ remains into orbit ($995) or perhaps even to the moon ($12,000).

the only requirement is that cake is served at each gathering, making the event “less of a serious discussion and more of a celebration,” Fox said. At 38, Fox said she was one of

Gala gifts Ronald McDonald House REGION — Raising $620,000 for families in medical crisis, attendees of Le Cirque du ROMP enjoyed a concert by Steven Tyler and live and silent auctions while supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego on Sept. 20. Event chairwoman and Rancho Santa Fe resident Jennifer Gramins, a longtime supporter of the Ronald McDonald House, brought the event to life, incorporating circus-themed elements and corporate and community philanthropists. Honorary chairs of the event were Rebecca and Jennifer Moores, who each contributed to the gala’s fundraising success. “So many people came together to make tonight an overwhelming success — our honorary chairs Rebecca Moores and Jennifer Moores, the Hoehn family, the dedicated event committee, including former event chairs Mary Drake and Fernanda Whitworth. “We would also like to say thank you to our headliner Steven Tyler. He was extremely generous with his time and kind to ev-

ally,” she added. She said her Death Café will begin with a brief introduction. Participants will then break into small groups and be given optional discussion topics such as the importance of having one’s estate in order or experiences people have had witnessing death. But each group can discuss whatever comes up, she added. The meeting will end with reflections from each group — and cake. People who are currently grieving a loss are dissuaded from attending, but David Miller, minister at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Dieguito, where the event is being held, will be on hand for support, Fox said. Death Café will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Oct. 18 at 1036 Solana Drive in Solana Beach. The event is free but donations are accepted to cover the cost of cake and beverages.

breast cancer, something from which she said she is fully expected to recover and survive. “Death doesn’t have to be scary or dark,” Fox said. “I’ve always been interested in discussing death because it didn’t scare me, not even as I was contemplating death with the disease.” As a yogi, Fox said she considers death part of life’s natural cycle that shouldn’t be feared. “To live deeply means contemplating death and one’s own mortality,” she said. “With Death Café others can direct you down paths you wouldn’t have gone down or to think things you wouldn’t have thought.” About 40 people attended the two-hour Carlsbad event, “and the conversation never stalled,” Fox said. “Clearly there is a need. I’m not the only one contemplating this.” Fox said she decided to host an event because “they should happen more often.” “We have support groups for bereavement, but there’s no place to go talk about death more casu-
