Foundation readies for Halloween By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — For decades, the Halloween Carnival at R. Roger Rowe School has been a staple and an event many children look forward to. Yet again, the RSF Education Foundation is hosting an incredible event not to be missed. And it’s a venue where the kids can fashion their costume picks of the year. The Halloween Parade and Carnival will kick off a little after noontime Oct. 31. First on the fun agenda is a Halloween parade, where everyone can cheer on the kids while they pad through the Village. Once done, the other slice of fun begins at the Carnival. Halloween Carnival co-chair, Jennifer Levine, said this Carnival is to support and celebrate the holiday for the children. Other co-chairs include Jan Castonguay and Nina Kottler. Levine estimates they have approximately 45 volunteers who take

Inn at RSF debuts a trick or treat extravaganza By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — On Halloween, the Inn will transform into an evening destination filled with festivities for all. This event marks the first ever Halloween Trick or Treat Extravaganza at the historic inn. The celebration will start at 6 p.m., where parents can take the little ones for “tricking or treating” throughout the decorated cottages. Each cottage will have its own theme. And everyone is encouraged to wear a costume for this debut underneath the starlit sky. As a way of giving back to the community, this “trick or treat” event for the children is complimentary. While the children collect their goodies, the adults can make a beeline for the Graveyard Bar. The Morada Bar will also be serving up Happy Hour specials. “We hope the community will The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe is debuting a Halloween Trick of Treat Extravangza this year.

RANCHO SANTA FE — At the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, James C. Clad, the former U.S. Deputy Assistant of Secretary Defense and current international energy consultant, spoke to the San Diego Committee on Foreign Relations. Following the Oct. 15 dinner, Clad approached the podium and addressed a well-attended crowd. Clad’s main topic of focus was on shale energy and how it’s perceived to afford the U.S. with economic benefits. With his immense knowledge in a variety of areas, Clad chose this particular topic. “The shale energy story is the best piece of overall, comprehensive good news to happen to America in a long while — as energy security, as a way to reindustrialize the country, as to ‘bridge fuel’ to ever

he said. Clad went on to say that shale energy is offering new leverage in terms of sanctions on misbehaving oil producing countries. “It’s a great story,” Clad said. Also known as hydraulic fracturing, fracking is the method of removing natural gas within shale rock. Fracking has entered a manufacturing renaissance era, since attempts in the past were moot because shale rock lies deep in the earth, and was unattainable. New technology has now unleashed fracking. “Fracking is here to stay,” said Clad. He continued, “It’s changing under our eyes and put us back into the world now.” Since 2009, Clad indicated the carbon footprint TURN TO CLAD ON 18

Tree trimming inspections underway in the Ranch By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — At a recent RSF Board of Director’s meeting, staff advised the board and the members present regarding the upcoming tree trimming process, which would be taking place in the Ranch. Ivan Holler, acting manager, said from time to time, the Association does hear from members who are not pleased with the trimming results. Holler went on to say that the tree trimming is in an effort to provide clearance around SDG&E power lines. “I wanted to just take a minute to let everyone know that if someone contacts us in advance that we

do work with SDG&E and with the property owner,” he said, adding how that’s been successful. Holler then introduced their field operations manager, Arnold Keene, to provide further updates. Keene started off by saying that this is an item, which keeps them very busy. The SDG&E pre-inspection process would begin this month. All the trees in the Ranch are cataloged. “They (SDG&E) will evaluate them for trimming or removal, as they do every year. And that inspection process lasts about three months,” he said. Following this, a tree

service comes in to do the trimming. “Sometimes I hate to call it that because they unfortunately end up with some trees that look disfigured, and that’s been the challenge, trying to come up with a way for them to meet their mandate which is pretty strict,” Keene said. “And it’s the law, but yet we want to end up with a community that doesn’t have a bunch of disfigured trees.” Keene explained the challenge lies with the fact that its eucalyptus and palm trees are planted under high voltage wires. Keene said that last year, the tree trimmers got very aggressive and the Association re-

ceived some complaints. Keene told the board that this law, established back in the 1990s, was the direct result of electrocutions, and also fires, when trees fell on wires. SDG&E must have a specific clearance of trees from these wires. Nevertheless, staff is working closely with the utility company. Keene commented that he believed SDG&E was giving them more attention than most communities which was nice. The plan is to organize a meeting with SDG&E, go out to the site(s) with SDG&E and tree trimming representatives and arrive with the best solutions.

“Sometimes SDG&E is flexible but sometimes they are very firm about it, but, we do try to work with them. And I think we’ve done a lot better,” he said. “I think we’re at the point where we need to look at some removals where trees have just been continually cut down.” Keene also wanted the board to know that the tree trimming company would be available to have a presentation with them, while the board and members could learn more about their background. Keene said the company was very educated in their line of work. Board member, Jerry Yahr, said because new res-

idents are continually moving into the Ranch, how it might be a positive move to put a news article together on this topic for the local papers. “So if you see the SDG&E folks out in your neighborhood, here’s why they do it,” said Yahr, offering a starting point. “I don’t think the majority of people that have contacted you think it’s the Association that’s coming out and trimming these trees so just a little more education might be helpful.” The board agreed with Yahr’s suggestion and provided their input regarding an upcoming media announcement.

Board of Directors approve draft audit By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — The latest RSF Association Board of Director’s Meeting gave board members the opportunity to review the proposed 2013-14 draft copy of its audited financial statements. While board members decided on a few minor edits, they unanimously approved it. The audit was conducted by AKT CPAs and Business Consultants. Approving the draft copy was the big item of the day for the board. Steve Comstock, chief financial officer of the RSF Association provided the introductions. He was also on hand to address questions from board members. He explained AKT would be giving the board a presentation regarding the results of their annual financial audit. Comstock told the board that once the draft was approved, it would be turned it into a 5x8 document, a double-sided booklet that would be mailed out to all the residents by the Oct. 30, according to their bylaws. “There is an introduc-

tory letter that will also be going out that will be signed by President Boon,” Comstock said. Ron Mitchell, a partner of AKT, noticed some new board members and wanted them to know that if they had any questions he was there to address them. He reminded the board that the audit was in draft form. Before giving the presentation, Mitchell shared a bit about the company. “AKT is a top 100 firm; and, we’re the second oldest firm in San Diego. We have about 250 people on the West Coast,” he said, adding how he had been with the organization for more than 30 years. Mitchell added how he had also served on several boards over the years. This included Tri-City Hospital, MiraCosta College Foundation Board and more. “So, I kind of sit in your seat, but I’m also on this side,” he said. “One other thing I want to note is we get audited every three years to make sure we’re following the rules. And we just finished getting audited in April.” Mitchell first reviewed a report for the Board of the

Directors, and then the second report which will ultimately be mailed out to the members entitled, “Rancho Santa Fe Association And Affiliate: Consolidated Financial Statements and Supplemental Information — Years Ended June 30, 2014 and 2013.” Mitchell reviewed the independent auditors report, consolidated financial statements, consolidated balance sheets, consolidated statements of revenues and expenses and changes in fund balances, consolidated statements of cash flows, and notes to consolidated financial statements. A few pieces of supplemental attachments in the report consisted of an independent auditor’s report on supplemental information, combining schedule of changes in fund balances, and supplemental statement of future major repairs and replacements. The latter was unaudited. During the course of the presentation, Mitchell commented that the consolidated statements of revenues, expenses, and changes in the fund balances were, “a little more solid” than in the previous year.

Coastal dentists offer candy buy-back REGION — Two area dentists are working to keep teeth candy-and-cavity free following the upcoming “Trick or Treat” holiday. Saying they want youngsters to “put your money where your mouth is,” Warner Pediatric Dental is offering to pay youngsters $1 per pound, up to 5 pounds, for all unopened candy from 1 to 5 p.m. Nov. 3 and Nov. 4 at 1443 Encinitas Blvd. www. warnerpediatricdental. com/staff/xavier-doe" Dr. Doug Warner will also give away toothbrushes, and local favors in exchange for cavity-provoking candy. In addition, there will be prizes and a raffle give-away. The candy will then be shipped to troops

overseas via Operation Gratitude. Additionally, they will provide paper and writing utensils for children who would like to create a card for the service members. Great Smiles Pediatric Dentistry is hosting its own Halloween candy buyback from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 6 at its 530 Lomas Santa Fe, Suite H, Solana Beach office and Nov. 7 at the 1200 Garden View Road, Encinitas office.

dr-natalie-miller-orthodontist/ Dr. Natalie Miller and www.greatsmiles. org/staff/dr-william-rawlings-pediatr ic- dentist-and-orthodontist/ Dr. William Rawlings, will pay each child $1 for each pound of candy and will make it a fundraising competition. When youngsters drop off candy, they are invited to register their school and teacher. The 10 classes that donate the most candy will be awarded a pizza party. Whichever school has the most amount of candy, donated on its behalf, will also win a $500 donation. Any person under 18 can donate candy, with a maximum of 5 pounds per child.

The best choice for judge By William Gore

My duties as San Diego’s top law enforcement officer require me to make the best decisions for public safety. Judges regularly make public safety decisions too — not on the street but in their courtrooms. Judges are guardians of our Constitution and our liberties. Accordingly, we expect them to rise above ideology and politics and to be fair-minded. Above all, they should act ethically and with integrity at all times. Character and experience set judicial candidate Brad Weinreb apart from his opponent, Ken Gosselin, in the upcoming election — the only Superior Court judicial race on the ballot. Both UT-San Diego and City Beat newspapers agree and have endorsed him. The San Diego County Bar Association rated Mr. Weinreb “Qualified” based on character traits necessary for judicial candidates — fairness, integrity, and temperament. His opponent was found to be “Lacking Qualifications” based upon the same criteria. Mr. Gosselin was required to change his ballot statement and to remove what he said about his own background and experience because it was misleading. Today, there is a State Bar ethics investigation against him based on his campaign activities. It is not surprising then that over 100 Superior Court Judges en-

dorse Mr. Weinreb to be their colleague on the bench. A veteran prosecutor, Brad Weinreb has spent almost 25 years making sure dangerous criminals remain off our streets. His work in the courtroom has resulted in decisions that protect the public from sexually violent predators and helps law enforcement track registered sex offenders. He won the first California case to uphold a sexual molest victim’s right to have a courthouse dog accompany her to the witness stand. Not surprisingly, crime victims’ groups support Brad for judge. Brad is supported by community leaders and organizations, legal associations, law enforcement, and fellow elected law enforcement leaders District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis and San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith. Brad also serves on the Board of the Richard Dreyfuss Civics Initiative to engage children in the study of Civics and the San Diego Animal Support Foundation. Voters face a number of tough decisions on their ballots. This is not one. The choice is clear. I urge you to vote for integrity and experience and public safety. Vote for Brad Weinreb for Superior Court Judge. William “Bill” Gore is San Diego County Sheriff.

Props. 45, 48: Two obvious ‘Yes’ votes California Focus By Thomas D. Elias It’s almost a foregone conclusion that the Proposition 1 water bond on next month’s ballot will pass easily: Every poll shows it with almost a 2-1 lead heading into the vote and the opposition has virtually no money for television commercials. But two other propositions are almost equally deserving of yes votes, Propositions 45 and 48. Proposition 45 is almost a no-brainer. It would place health insurance rates under the same kind of regulation that has made California the only state where automobile insurance prices have fallen over the last 25 years — since voters adopted the 1988 Proposition 103 and put car and property insurance rates under

the authority of the state insurance commissioner. One look at the list of donors to the No on 45 campaign (available on the secretary of state’s website at C a mpa ig n / C om m it tees / Detail.aspx?id=1343998&session=2013), reveals that through the end of September, all $34 million-plus spent to defeat 45 had come from the state’s largest health insurance companies: Blue Shield, Anthem Blue Cross and its parent company Wellpoint, Kaiser Foundation, United Healthcare and HealthNet. The single biggest check came last year from Wellpoint, which plunked down more than $12 million almost instantly when it became clear 45 would reach the ballot. Radio and television ads financed by those big bucks are misleading as

can be, warning that 45 could somehow reduce the negotiating power of the commission that regulates Covered California’s rates under Obamacare. It won’t. But it will require insurers to justify rate increases for groups and individual policies before they can be bumped up. The bottom line: The officials who would regulate health insurance rates under 45 have already saved Californians more than $105 billion over the years via car insurance rate hikes that didn’t happen. This proposition is sponsored by Consumer Watchdog, the same populist outfit that wrote and sponsored Proposition 103 in 1988, getting it through despite being outspent 60-1 in that election by the big auto insurance companies.

Students looking for your help We are the fifth-grade FLL Robotics Team from R. Roger Rowe School known as “The MazeRunners.” We want to say that the robotics program at our school is a great idea and we have fun learning about teamwork and coding and building robots. We hope to win and advance to the regional competition held at Legoland. This year we compete in three categories: Core Values, “The Project,” and the Robotics team challenge. We have been busy working on all three parts. The Project is to solve a real-world problem. This year’s theme is “World Class Education.” We need to come up with a problem and research a solution. Our team chose the issue of teaching language in a world where schools don’t have the time or money to teach language from an early age. We decided you can learn new languages outside of the classroom if you make it fun and use your hobbies and interests to learn languages. We think the future world will require communicating in other languages. Some of the things we have done for the challenge: We took a popular computer game “Minecraft” and changed the settings on the game to a foreign language of our choice (Spanish and Mandarin Chinese). We found that since we already know the game, it is easy for our brains to interpret what the computer is saying when we do game tasks that are natural to us already. Now if the computer says “construer terreno” we know it means “constructing terrain” because it is a thing we do a lot in the game. We interviewed our princi-


pal and Spanish teacher to discuss the challenges for our school and their ideas for us to use “immersion” ideas to learn language. We translated 10 parts of our robot into Spanish and memorized the words to use when we practice doing the other parts of our competition. We held two lunch clubs at school where we worked together on conversation in our common interest of Minecraft. We had a basketball “playdate” at the Powells with a Chinese exchange student coach who taught us basketball words while we played the game we already like to play. Though the competition is coming, this problem will remain for kids and grownups even after it is Just because we are talking about it now, it won’t disappear if we don’t keep trying. We are asking the community if they have experiences or ideas about finding ways to learn foreign languages through fun and immersion. In total we have to say that even with the ups and downs, FLL is the best! We already can’t wait until next year! We ask the community to email us your thoughts and ideas about our “World Class Education” idea to: RSFmazerunners@gmail. com

Amtrak, Metrolink, Coaster, Sprinter and freight trains, Oceanside has the highest rail traffic in San Diego County. This is no place for a quiet zone. In spite of this, Marriott built their hotel next to the railroad and now wants to silence the trains at great expense to the taxpayer — which in turn would compromise public safety. The millions of dollars to construct “quiet zones” would be better spent on our public schools. Jeopardizing public safety to appease corporate interests is wrong. Trains have been operating safely through Oceanside for 130 years thanks in part to the use of locomotive whistles/ horns. There is no substitute for safety. Tad Calcara, Oceanside A vote for Cameron Sheila Cameron is one of the leaders who worked to get Proposition A passed. She will lead Encinitas as mayor and work to solve problems in our communities with the same dedication she applied to passing Prop A. If you support Prop A and want leadership that gets the job done, vote for Sheila Cameron for mayor.

Sincerely, Malcolm McDonough, Nora Gauvreau, JT Young, Jake Malter, David Scuba, Logan Johnson, Brandon Powell and Dylan Powell Train horns are matter of public safety All safety components at railroad crossings are essential — including locomotive horns.

RANCHO SANTA FE — Helen Woodward Animal Center had a monumental day for the children and adult students of its Therapeutic Riding Program Oct. 11. Parents, friends and family members gathered in the center’s riding arena to enjoy the 2014 Therapeutic Riding Show, providing riders the opportunity to show off their newly-developed equine skills and receive trophies for their accomplishments. The event is often the very first time the students have ever been recognized in such a special way. The Center's Therapeutic Riding Program benefits children and adults who have a variety of special needs from cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome and autism to stroke recovery and learning disabilities. Students ride specially-trained horses with certified instructors in weekly sessions to develop increased balance and muscle control, improve concentration and short-term memory and enhance their confidence and self-esteem. The program aims to keep learning fun for both students and the center’s therapy horses, by incorporating a variety of games. The basic riding skills incorporate all parts of the body (hands, legs, and eyes) and also aid in developing

Help bring holiday joy to our military heroes Help be a hero to theheroes this holiday season. For military families with loved ones deployed, it’s hard enough to have to endure a holiday season without their mother or father around the dinner table. And still harder if their loved one comes backhaving sustained combat injuries. That’s why the nonprofit Spirit Of Sharing (SOS) is rising to the occasion by helping provide not only the basic necessities any family would need, but also by bringing a little holiday cheer into the lives of military families that are in need. The primary focus of SOS, which is locally based in Oceanside, is to serve the military families that are local to this area, with strong focus on ensuring the children of these families having a wonderful holiday season. Anyone who makes a donation will directly support families, right in their own neighborhoods. SOS is 100 percent volunteer staffed with 100 percent of all donations raised going directly to local, southern California military families. Donations are 100 percent tax deductible. Striving to build personal and lasting relationships with each family, SOS is able to gain better insight and understanding of individual and familial needs and interests. Each family is generally provided with several weeks’ worth of groceries and all of the goodies that make the holiday season

tiple deployments over the last 10 years affecting families, SOS is seeing an increase in the amount of military families in need each year families are now trying to cope with the aftermath of war and multiple deployments. And they still need help to continue to do so. With year-round fundraising efforts, SOS is always looking for donations of any kind, including gas cards, gift cards for clothing, toys — even groceries. People interested in donating items may call SOS directly at (760) 7268100 or emailing questions to spiritofsharing@ More information is available on their website at SOS is at 3355 Mission Ave. Suite 111 in Oceanside. Oceanside-based nonprofit Spirit Of Sharing has helped to provide active duty military families in need during the holiday season and throughout the year, during tragedy, crisis or other unforeseen event.

so warm, comforting, and special. SOS also provides eachchild in these families with age-appropriate and personal gifts, including clothing, educational materials and toys. Each gift is individually wrapped and labeled by our wonderful volunteers “From Santa” and personally delivered at Christmas. Based in Oceanside, Calif. the small nonprofit helps active duty military families throughout Southern California, from the Naval Base in San Diego as far North as Edwards Air Force Base.

Since 2000, when the charity was started with the adoption of two families for the holiday season, they’ve continued to grow each year. To date, more than 800 military children and over 350 military families have received help from SOS. The Campbell family, who founded SOS is very sensitive to the stresses that military children experience and created SOS to help military children to be afforded the opportunity to have wonderful holiday memories in light of the heavy loads they often bear, as being part of a

military family. In fact, many of those working with SOS are military veterans and/or spouses. With the toll of mul-

The Great Scott is running past cancer again sports talk jay paris Steve Scott hit the tape and was hit up. “Can I have your autograph?’’ a teenager asked. Scott, as usual, signed and smiled. “That would have been bad,’’ Scott said with a laugh, “if I hadn’t.’’ Scott, the iconic American distance runner, was dusting off a 1978 story. Like his record 136 sub 4-minute miles, there’s a kick.

Rossi, 51, is a longtime volunteer assistant coach at Claremont McKenna College. For years Scott’s squads competed in the school’s Rossi Relays. “I never put two and two together,’’ said Scott, a USA Track and Field Hall of Fame member. ”Even after I met him.’’ Scott and Rossi are one, fighting Scott’s prostate cancer.

This feels like a second home to me.”

Greisgraber studied in Encinitas under local musician Peter Pupping and is a graduate of Berklee School of Music. A new mini-documentary video, "A Journey Through Unnamed Lands" is available at thossounds. com. The video is a brief history of The Tom Griesgraber/Bert Lams duo and the making of the album “Unnamed Lands,” as part one of a new series. Griesgraber’s bio describes his playing of the Chapman Stick as “having acoustic guitar or piano-like moments, funk rock bass lines, ambient synth and soundscape textures, rock guitar leads, jazz solos and even small bits of percussion sometimes all happening simultaneously.” He discovered the" Chapman Stick, taking up the unique 12-string instrument after watching a performance in 1997. Developed by musician Emmett Chapman in the early 1970s, the Chapman Stick used by Griesgraber combines six guitar strings tuned in fourths with six bass strings tuned in fifths. Notes are “tapped” rather than strummed. Griesgraber decided to put his creative career on hold, set aside the guitar, and focus on the still mostly unexplored territory of the often unrecognized Chapman Stick. “Logically that decision didn’t make much sense,” says Griesgraber. “It really felt like starting over, but I just knew I had to do it. I believe every one of us has a purpose in life and if we concentrate on doing what we feel called to do, no matter the risks, things work out for the best.” For more information, visit Connect with the duo at BertLamsTomGriesgraber" / Ber t L a msTomGriesgraber

The Ranho Buena Vista Adobe in Vista will be host to a series of paranormal investigations starting Oct. 25. Photo courtesy Nicole Strickland

Vista Adobe hosts paranormal investigations tory and the strange happenings known to occur there. Much of this event is further heightened by the inclusion of the SDPRS’s paranormal investigation techniques, which any tourist can experience in person. “Guests have the opportunity to test out equipment used in paranormal research and ask questions during EVP and ITC (real-time spirit communication) sessions,” says Strickland, who is also the SDPRS founder. “Thus, guests not only have the chance to tour the adobe and see its beautiful rooms and artifacts, they have the chance to participate in an actual paranormal investigation hosted by members of the San Diego Paranormal Research Society.” This “up close and personal” aspect is necessary to experience the event in its entirety, because, as with any fascinating field of study, exercising the proper methods to explore the eerie unknown is essential. And this especially applies to guests, who, while touring the adobe, get to taste what it is like to attempt to discover the explanations behind these anomalies. For Strickland, educating the Average Joe or Jane

VISTA — The San Diego Paranormal Research Society (SDPRS) invites visitors to participate in the “Spirits of the Adobe” tours at the historic birthplace of Vista. First established in the mid-19th century, the Rancho Buena Vista Adobe has witnessed its share of upgrades as well as people, its structure having maintained its historical integrity over the years and seen various inhabitants come and go. Now a museum site and venue for special occasions, the layered past within its walls is an interesting history lesson in and of itself. According to legend, however, some of the Adobe’s original residents have never truly left the premises, a phenomenon that has caught the attention of the SDPRS for some time now. And for three monthly Saturday evenings, from October to December, the general public will get the chance to investigate these paranormal activities in the “Spirits of the Adobe” tours. Hosted by Nicole Strickland and Maria Garcia, the tour takes visitors on an interactive ghostly journey as they learn about the hacienda’s colorful his-

about the do’s and don’ts of delving into that ghostly world is the key to nurturing an interest in learning more about spirits and all things haunted. “Many people are new to paranormal research and if they are going be conducting investigations at a historical place or private residence — or anywhere for that matter — they deserve to know the correct way to approach an investigation,” she explains. “Since there is a huge interest in paranormal research,” she continues, “I want to make sure that those interested have a way of learning the proper procedures and protocols for conducting paranormal research.” This makes the educational nature of the “Spirits of the Adobe” tours all the more fun and exciting, especially where its late former residents are concerned. With a history that started in 1845, when Luiseno Indian and Christian convert Felipe Subria received the original land grant, there is much to learn about the many lives this Californian treasure housed.

Educational Opportunities

Grauer School open house is Nov. 15

The ideal small school campus. The Grauer School is a leader in Small School college preparation and founder of The Small Schools Coalition. After a quarter-century, we know our learning culture gets results. Eighty nine percent of Grauer seniors are accepted to their first choice college. More important, they become remarkably well balanced adults. We are now completing a beautiful and safe permanent campus, painstakingly designed to support curiosity, academic mastery, and discovery. Visit our Open House-Under-Construction. You might find that our small school enclave for Grades 7–12 is ideal for your child. Open House Saturday, November 15 | 11:00–2:00 PM | RSVP: or 760.274.2116

The Grauer School will host an Open House event for prospective families Nov.15, on its Encinitas campus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tours will be conducted every 20 minutes and interested families are encourged to tour the facilities and meet with faculty, administration, matriculated students, and current Grauer families. “This year, we are continuing to offer an online registration option on our website that allows families to simply checkin and queue up for a tour rather than having to wait in line to register the day

of the event. At the Open House, visitors will be guided through the campus by Grauer students and will be introduced to faculty, who will explain our academic and extra-curricular programs, including all-seasons athletics, performing arts, robotics, film, leadership, and community service,” states Sandy Merten, associate director of Admissions. “Our programs attract families who are looking for academic rigor coupled with teachers who truly care about the success of each individual student.

“We also offer outstanding support for independent athletes who need a customized schedule.” The Grauer School is a grades 7-12 college preparatory school that is the regional leader in the small schools movement. As a small school by design, with approximately 150 students total, The Grauer School emphasizes relationship-based teaching that stems from its small class sizes with a student to teacher ratio of 7 to 1.

Students work on Give and Surf program A new school year commences and many exciting opportunities emerge for PAE students beyond their rigorous, cross-curricular, project-based classes they have come to know and enjoy. Students have the opportunity to get involved in sports, music, and volunteering. Service and making education come to life have been Pacific Academy's cornerstone for years. Pacific Academy embeds Service into the curriculum knowing the benefits that giving back can provide while also building leadership skills. Through student-driven projects, students will lead and participate in a variety of community service projects throughout San Diego and beyond. This year, students will be working on a yearlong service project that will end with learning truly coming to life by getting to visit the organization they have been collaborating with all year, Give and Surf, a locally embedded 501(c)(3) nonprofit of volunteers that provides sustainable empowerment to indigenous communities in Bocas del Toro, Panama, through education and community development. Thus far, the organization, with the help of volunteers, has build the first community playground and library, performed commu-

nity construction, installed a water catchman tank, and led all preschool educational programs. Give and Surf, provides substantive, hands-on, real world assistance and programs to the indigenous Ngobe people. Neil Christiansen, the founder notes, "We offer enriching volunteer and internship opportunities to give back to others and give back to yourself in the remote islands of Bocas del Toro." Give and Surf, Inc. is a small organization that “relies heavily on having individuals or groups come down for the experience,” Christiansen said. “That is why it is so important to build an unforgettable experience for the volunteer.” Pacific Academy is thrilled to join Give and Surf this year. Students will learn a great deal about Panama, Latin Amer-

ica, Nonprofits and more all while proactively creating and living out their volunteerism. Pacific Academy is always looking for ways to give back, ground leaning, and make education memorable. Another wonderful example was led by our English Teacher, Mrs. Emma Bardin. As a part of PAE’s commitment to cross-curricular learning, earlier this year PAE English World Literature students conducted a scientific experiment using microfluidics and wrote a scientific paper about their findings. Their experiment was just referenced in a high-impact scientific journal this summer. Biomedical engineer Dr. David Bardin, who specializes in microfluidics and ran the experiment with PAE students, published his article in Lab on a Chip in which he discusses the microfluidic experiment PAE students conducted in English World Literature. PAE’s EWL experiment and scientific papers are truly cutting edge! With an exciting year ahead filled with more project-based learning and volunteering locally and internationally, now is the time for students to find their passion and seize the opportunity to be themselves at Pacific Academy, Encinitas!

Odd Files


By Chuck Shepherd

Funding the Revolution Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks publisher of state secrets who remains holed up in the embassy of Ecuador in London, has signed on with an Icelandic licensing agent to sell Assange-branded highend clothing, shoes and various household goods in India and much of Europe, and is negotiating to put his logo on apparel in Japan and the U.S. The agent told The New York Times in October that “WikiLeaks” and “Assange” “can be as big as Coca-Cola.” A 46-page book sets out licensing standards (e.g., no tacky slogans, such as “We Steal Secrets”) and includes the one approved Assange portrait (an “idealized line drawing” of him “gazing soulfully into what is presumably a better future,” wrote the Times). Things You Thought Couldn’t Happen Lucky Dog Retreat Rescue in Indianapolis reported in October that, even after many heroic saves, they had never heard of a dog like Adam, who is apparently allergic to humans. Following a blood test to determine why he remained so sickly despite therapies, a doctor reported that Adam is allergic to human dander, and researchers told WRTV that a special serum was being prepared. Things You Thought Would Happen Britain’s The Guardian reported in October that repairing the “fashion” holes in earlobes is one of the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures in the U.K., as millennial generation radicals tire of their half- to 3/4-inch, see-through lobes. Doctors charge up to $3,000 to remove the entire area around the hole (originally created by stretching the tissue) and connect the healthy parts back so they fuse together. (A Hawaiian man, not currently a patient, supposedly has the largest ear hole, nearly 4 inches in diameter.)

Fundraiser marks tsunami anniversary ENCINITAS — In the wake of the 2004 Asian Tsunami, Sasha Bilar founded Toys for Thailand. Sasha and her friends collected 700 pounds of stuffed animals and hand delivered the toys throughout the tsunami zone to children who were orphaned or abandoned in the disaster. Thai Airways International provided complimentary cargo shipping. Toys for Thailand (T4T) is a voluntary team that has been providing tangible goods and services for disadvantaged children in Thailand since 2005. The group is hosting two fundraising events this fall, beginning with the Tribal Fashion and Gift Bazaar from 1 to 4 p.m. Nov. 8 at Seaside Center for Spiritual Living, 1613 Lake Drive. They will host another in Northern Thailand Dec. 24. The Encinitas event will feature a Hill Tribal fashion show, ethnic handicrafts, tribal embroidery and holiday gifts. A variety of noodle, rice, salad and curry dishes prepared by Chef Saranya will be available for purchase. There will also be Thai massage by Pure Life Thai Spa. The proceeds from the fundraiser will support an eye clinic for children in Northern Thailand. Toys for Thailand has

forged powerful partnerships to stretch resources and build a support network for the children and schools they serve including the Maehongson Education Association, US Navy Project Handclasp, Childline Foundation, Chiangmai International Rotary, AmigoVisionThailand and San Diego Lions Club. For more information about Toys for Thailand Web site toysforthailand. org or In 2005, T4T founder Sasha Bilar and friend Judy Eberhart packed up and delivered 700 pounds of little fuzzy stuffed toys to children in Thailand’s Tsunami zone. In 2014, Bilar revisited Tubpla, one of the villages where she and Eberhart distributed toys. The girl (who was a baby in 2005, displayed the T4T toys, preserved in a glass cabinet in her humble wooden shack. Toys for Thailand now orchestrates The Small World Maehongson Festival to bring together hundreds of isolated village Hill Tribe school children to the city to celebrate their cultural traditions and bring awareness about their needs. In December, 40 Tribal schools will come together on Jong Kum Lake in Maehongson, Thailand

for its fifth Small World Festival. Scholarships will be awarded and the ChiangMai International Rotary will be hosting an Eye Clinic for the children and their parents. For more information about the festival contact Maria Miller at or Mr. Bundit Ninudomsak, (Thai/English). Bringing “toys to Thailand” began in 2005 as a quest to give comfort to Thai children but the vision quickly expanded. The group evolved from providing toys to children in the southern Tsunami zone to supporting underserved Hill Tribe schools in the rugged North: Maehongson Province is the poorest area in Thailand where 70 percent of the population are Hill Tribe people. These Tribal children face overwhelming difficulties and risks, including HIV/ AIDS, sexual exploitation, child labor, drug and alcohol abuse, malnutrition and erosion of cultural traditions. The resources included rice husking and soy milk machines, agricultural supplies, water systems, solar panels, vocational and instructional tools. School Playgrounds and Barber Shops are among the most popular donated items.


sinos, this one is controversial only because it would adjoin State Highway 99 about 25 miles north of Fresno and presumably attract some gamblers who now take their money to other nearby casinos. In fact, almost all funding for the No on 48 campaign as of Sept. 30 came from existing Indian casinos which fear new competition. The two biggest contributors to the campaign against 48 are the existing Table Mountain and Chukchansi Gold casinos, also located near Fresno, and their financial backers. The second-leading contributor to the No campaign is Chukchansi’s leading lender, New York’s Brigade Capital Management. The No campaign calls on voters to “Keep Vegas-style casinos out of neighborhoods,” but it’s really about eliminating competition. There is in fact no neighborhood adjacent to the casino site, only a hotel, gas station and open land. Meanwhile, building

the casino would produce about 4,000 permanent jobs in Madera County, where unemployment runs about 25 percent above the statewide average. It would also draw workers from nearby Fresno and Merced counties, whose unemployment is even higher. Only an accident of fate — and the fortunes of long-ago tribal warfare — left the North Forkers so far from a major highway that they need to build off their reservation. The bottom line: Both these propositions and the water bond deserve yes votes both on their own merits and because of the disingenuous nature of the opposition.

a location’s history from its paranormal happenings. For that reason, many locations with a lot of noted history tend to be paranormally active,” Strickland asserts. “This is the case with the Rancho Buena Vista Adobe. The SDPRS team has been able to build a rapport with some of the resident spirits there. Many times, a location’s paranormal activity is its way of telling its story and sharing its history.” The Rancho Buena Vista Adobe is located at

640 Alta Vista Dr. In addition, the “Spirits of the Adobe” tours take place on Saturdays (Oct. 25, Nov.15, and Dec. 13) at either 7:30 p.m. or 9:30 p.m. The price of admission is $25 per person, and the event is open to those aged 18 and up.

The need to approve Proposition 48 may not seem as obvious, because its passage would simply allow construction of a new Indian casino already approved by every state and federal authority with a voice in the matter, from the state Legislature and Gov. Jerry Brown to the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs. While it’s true this gaming compact would be the first allowing a Native American tribe to build a gambling hall off reservation land in California, approval in no way means other tribes would have an easy time gaining a similar nod. (Full disclosure: The writer is part-owner of the Madera Tribune, headquartered about one mile from the planned site of the putative new casino, to be owned by the North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians.)

So many of the homes he noticed were not accessible from the street, with long driveways and gated entries. “I thought The Inn would be the perfect location for a safe trick or treat experience for the children of Rancho Santa Fe. So far, planning the event has been a blast,” he said. Strack wants families to know the children can enjoy complimentary trick or treating in The Inn’s decorated cottages while adults sip their drinks at the Graveyard Bar under The Inn’s spooky Pepper Tree.

“Spooky décor and The Inn’s signature rustic charm serve as the perfect backdrop to the culmination of a beautiful Harvest season,” he said. Strack continued, “Our Halloween Extravaganza uniquely serves the community by appealing to both adults and children and providing a fun, safe and festive outlet to spend Halloween.” Strack went on to say that while one never knows how successful an inaugural festive event will be, they are putting out all the stops, and hoping it becomes an event, which grows more popular with each coming year.

Levine went on to say that she believes what makes the event so unique is because it’s a community affair. The RSF Fire Department takes part in it by judging the contests. As everyone works up an appetite, the RSF Education Foundation anticipated those needs with a delectable lineup including crepes from Isabelle Brien’s French Pastry Cafe, Hector’s Fresh Tacos, NY Giant Pizza, San Diego Pretzel Company and more. And there will be

The passion for winemaking returns for Michael Mondavi taste of wine frank mangio


he Mondavi name in Napa Valley wine lore is indeed alive and well. It still commands a reverence for its illustrious history and an intense interest in its reboot for the future. The Napa Valley Mondavi family tree of wine was rooted by Cesare Mondavi, who began growing wine grapes in 1921 in Lodi, Calif. The second generation included Robert Mondavi, who, in the ‘40s with brother Peter Mondavi, built the Charles Krug winery into a major name in Napa Valley. Robert eventually separated to build his own empire with Robert Mondavi Winery in the ‘60s, and later Opus One in the ‘80s. In the fast-track growth and stormy experiences that followed, third generation Michael Mondavi, son of Robert, was making wine under his father’s guidance. My interview with Michael at the Meritage Wine Market in Encinitas was one I had waited for, and it didn’t disappoint. “Back in the ‘60s, our focus was on small, quality production, 30 to 50,000 cases a year,” he said. “When we sold Robert Mondovi Winery in 2004 to Constellation, a world wide holding company, we were up to 11 million cases and I was running the company. I was too busy to do anything with the production of wine. Now, what’s fun for me is that, when I was making wine, it had to be what my father Robert said I had

Book chronicles amusing signs from around the world hit the road

The Rancho SanTa Fe newS

e’louise ondash


igns are everywhere — because I suppose, they are necessary — mostly. They tell us where we are, where to go, what to do and what not to do. They tell us how far it is to the next exit, where to park or not, and to watch for dangerous conditions. Signs explain which streets are dead-ends, whether we can take a left turn and where to go to the bathroom. Signs also tell us a lot about local culture, and sometimes they are downright hilarious. Photographer, writer and world traveler Doug Lansky thinks so, too. “I started collecting sign photos while I was doing a big round-the-world backpacking trip that started in 1992 and ended about two-and-a-half years later when I was hit by a car in Bangkok,” relayed Lansky via email. Today, after many years on the road, he’s married, has three children and lives in Stockholm. After that first long trip, “I was showing friends a stack of photos … I noticed that they quickly lost interest in the shots of me standing in front of various famous attractions, but really seemed to enjoy the five or six pictures of funny signs.” In 1999, Lansky created a website (“clunky and expensive” back then) to which people could upload their photos of signs. “This got things rolling.” Lonely Planet published his first book of sign pictures in 2005. This latest one, “Ultimate Signspotting; Absurd and Amusing Signs from Around the World,” is Lansky’s fifth. “Over the last 20 years, I’ve gathered well over 50,000 sign photos from well traveled amateur and professional photographers,” Lansky wrote.

Worldwide traveler and writer Doug Lansky has spent two decades collecting absurd signs – those he has seen as well as those spotted by other travelers. “Ultimate Signspotting,” published by Lonely Planet, is his fifth book on the subject. Courtesy photo

“For each of (my books), I sand submissions and pick had to take several thou- out approximately 250 fa-

vorites.” Best of show? “If I have to choose, I'll go with the ‘Bottomless Pit - 65 feet deep’ sign from Hawaii.” Oddly enough, Lansky thinks that this country, the United Kingdom and Australia have the funniest signs. “No one mucks up our language as well as we do,” he said. “China has contributed an impressive amount to the collection, but they did a big sign clean-up before hosting the Olympics (in 2008), so I'm not sure how many of those mangled-English signs are left.” These days, Lansky’s travel is mostly done for speaking engagements and leisure trips with the family, but he’s still collecting photos of strange and humorous signs.
