San Elijo Hills Resident Turns 100! If you don’t spend much time at Questhaven Park, this might be a new face to you. Anthony Cardarella (affectionately known to most as Poppy) lives here in San Elijo Hills and just last month, he celebrated his 100th birthday with family and friends.

Residents Having Fun Building Community! Two different neighborhood events happened recently that are perfect examples of building community. Residents of Cedar Crossing participated in an annual neighborhood Memorial Day Lawn Golf tournament and residents of Mariners Landing and Meridian turned out for a neighborhood flag football game. Both events were organized by local residents to have fun with their neighbors.

editor’s corner Celebrating Freedom This month, we celebrate our independence and freedom -- freedom as a country, freedom from a school schedule, and maybe even a little freedom from work (a.k.a. vacation). Celebrating our freedom comes easy to us – it’s an American tradition. We LOVE our freedom. But as much as we love our own independence, it’s interesting how hard it is for us to celebrate the independence of others. We want to be free, but when someone else goes off and does their ‘own thing’, we quickly judge. How dare they be different! We judge people on the home they live in, the cars they drive, the shape of their bodies, their level of volunteerism, their parenting skills, the way they park their cars in the street, the junk they collect in their garages, the wine they drink, the way they landscape their yard, the way they educate their children….you name it. Most of us mean no harm in it. It just happens. In fact, it’s so automatic that we often don’t even realize we’re doing it.

wise

While we may be quick to judge, we also know how to come together as a community and as a people to protect what matters most. So this month as you think of Independence Day, let’s come together to celebrate that one value that matters more than anything…our freedom. Let’s celebrate not only our freedom, but the freedom of others - to live their life in a way that might be different from ours. To express their joy in a way that might not appeal to us. To raise their family in a way that might not make sense to us. To express their opinions in a way that might not be agreeable to us. Let’s celebrate that we live in a community full of a diverse group of people, each with their own skill-set and natural talents. Let’s celebrate that the world is not full of sameness and that while our houses can start to look alike in a neighborhood like this, we can each find a way to express ourselves individually and uniquely and, that in doing so, we create a stronger, more interesting place to express our own freedom.

It also included a visit from local firefighers and City Council member Rebecca Jones and Vice-Mayor Hal Martin. Rebecca read an official proclaimation from the City of San Marcos declaring June 13, 2009 “Poppy Day” in his honor.

Poppy has quite a following here in the community. He goes to the park on Questhaven every day. Nannies and moms gather at the park with their kids and the people who see each other there every day have become good friends. They all look forward to seeing each other and especially Poppy. This little community within the community has become an important social outlet for everyone. They celebrate each other’s birthdays and other special events and they have become friends beyond the boundaries of the park. Everyone involved with the Poppy Day celebration was thrilled to be there as each person has tremendous respect for Poppy. Becky Nutter, a nanny and one of the event’s coordinators, praised Poppy for his tenacity and his warmth. Janet Spalding, another nanny and coordinator, admires Poppy’s youthful outlook and how he always remembers small details about each person in their circle. Tatiana Walton, who frequents the park, describes Poppy as having a fantastic sense of humor. Poppy always has interesting stories to tell and he takes a strong interest in what is going on in the lives of the caretakers and the kids themselves. Poppy lives in Woodley’s Glen with his daughter and son-in-law (Carol and Gary Gidner). Carol and Gary’s son Damon and his wife Janet live down the

Poppy has had a very full life. He was the youngest of five children born in Buffalo, New York. He was married for 63 years and has lived to see 17 Presidents in office. He has watched fire engines transform from being pulled by horses to the machines they are today. He’s seen the progression of putting a man on the moon for the first time to astronauts now repairing a shuttle in space. He saw the entire progression from radio to the TVs we have today. He also has many stories to tell of his days in the Army during WWII where he was injured during the Battle of the Bulge and returned home to receive a Purple Heart for his service. Poppy is also a huge Yankees fan. He still watches every game. In fact, the Yankees sent Poppy some great team paraphernalia in celebration of his 100th birthday. Poppy said his secret to a long life is living a clean life and going to bed early every night. He advises kids to respect their parents and for parents to respect their kids and to take good care of each other. Poppy believes that there is nothing more important than family and community. This is something he not only preaches, but practices every day. Congratulations Poppy on 100 years and a special thank you to you and your family for being such a wonderful example of community living here in San Elijo Hills!

on your doorstep Memorial Day Golf

Neighborhood Flag Football

While most San Elijo Residents were busy gearing up plans for their Memorial Day BBQs, Brian Ayres from Cedar Crossing was busy designing a 14-hole golf course that would be constructed in his cul-de-sac. By rallying the support of all his neighbors, Brian re-introduced a neighborhood tradition of Memorial Day - Wiffle Ball Golf. Originally created a few years ago,

On a drizzling Saturday morning, 20 neighbors from San Elijo Hills got together for a couple games of Flag Football. This was the third such event that Steve Hawkesworth from Mariner’s Landing organized for his neighborhood. Players converged on the San Elijo fields at 9 a.m. for the friendly competition. After the field was coned off, flags were handed out to each player, teams were picked at random and the fun began. “What a fantastic neighborhood we live in. How many places can you go and get a bunch of guys together to play some fairly physical football and no one gets hurt and everyone has a fantastic time?” says Steve. One resident, Mario Caballero of Mariner’s Landing, opted to umpire the game instead of play. Furnished with an Ed Hochuli umpire uniform (the infamous NFL umpire whose blown call against the San Diego Chargers cost the Chargers the game and almost the playoffs last season), Mario ran along the field blowing his whistle and, like Hochuli, blowing calls. No one minded, as this event was about having fun, building community with your neighbors, and an excuse to run passing patterns on a wet field as if you were sixteen again. Steve is already planning the next Flag Football outing. It is turning into a tradition that his entire neighborhood looks forward to.

the tradition had stopped and Brian decided to bring it back. Everyone was glad he did. The course design was straight-forward. Marked by little lawn flags, you tee off from one lawn to your neighbor’s lawn across the street. With holes represented by trash can lids, the object was to chip it into the “hole” in the least amount of strokes. From that hole, you drive your golf Wiffle ball two doors down to another neighbor’s lawn, and so on through 14 holes. Obstacles were plenty. Players found themselves hitting out of trees, bushes, bouncing balls off houses and cars. The largest obstacle was the street. Depending on how much you liked your clubs, you could hit your ball out of the street or Brian placed “drop-zones” using doormats in which you could take a one-stroke penalty and play from the mat. The last hole was represented by a child’s swimming pool filled with water and all the “Green Fees” - the first player to chip into the water won the money. It was extreme golf with plenty of laughter and light-hearted teasing and a fun example of how an event can bring a neighborhood together.

New Carpooling Program Launches in San Elijo Hills for Area Schools Summer just started, but it won’t be long until school is back in session. To ease traffic congestion in San Elijo Hills and help parents juggle their busy schedules, a new carpool ridematching program called SchoolPool is being launched for the 2009-10 school year. Finding a good match with the free online service is free, private and easy. It is designed to help parents connect with other parents living in the same neighborhoods and ferrying kids back and forth to the same schools. The system makes the match, and the parents divide up the driving responsibilities. San Elijo Middle School has already set up the SchoolPool program.

Residents Celebrate UCSD Baseball UCSD advanced to their first Division II College World Series after winning the West Regional Tournament on May 17. The No. 1 ranked UC San Diego baseball team then lost a 5-3 heartbreaker to No. 3 Emporia State in the semifinals of the NCAA D-II National Championships on May 28 in Cary, N.C.  The Tritons trailed 3-1 but scored runs in the sixth and ninth innings to tie the game, only to have the Hornets win the game with a two-out bottom of the ninth walkoff homerun. UCSD Head Coach Dan O’Brien lives here in San Elijo Hills.  He lives in the Acacia community with his wife Nicole and their two children Allie 4 and Adam 1 ½.  Dan was named CCAA Coach of the Year after leading UCSD to the conference title.  UCSD has some great summer baseball camps. You can find information about the camps at www.ucsandiegobaseballcamps. com.Congratulations Dan and to the entire UCSD team for a great season!

A Dose of Literature The following poem was submitted by Jessica St.Martin of San Elijo Hills. She is 15 years old and just finished her sophomore year at San Marcos High School. Jessica loves reading and writing and is currently writing a book. She hopes to go to college and get a degree in English and Creative Writing. My Words Are My Freedom No constraint. No confinement. Never being tucked into alignment. Words are careless, always moving Free to express a thought of your choosing. These words are my resistance, Subjection to what should be, What to say, when to agree. Freedom is my pen held high, Revolution with a rallying cry. The strength to cut stars from the sky, And the courage to stop and always ask why. Words possess a power unknown, A pure endurance of blood and bone. They give us the ability to stand alone, Liberated from all we’ve known. the fountain: page 9

in your backyard City Passes Balanced Budget Takes Steps To Revive Local Economy as Threats Persist Chris Orlando: City Council In its June meet-

ing, the City Council passed a balanced budget that will guide City finances through difficult times. The three-year $60 plus million plan keeps San Marcos on solid financial footing as the most challenging economic environment in decades continues. In addition to balancing its books, the Council also approved steps to revive an important hotel project in town that will be a significant source of local revenue in the years to come. While balancing its budget and jump starting a local project are positive steps, the City is also keeping a close eye on the State’s budget situation, which could have a negative impact here in San Marcos despite the stability of our local finances. Each year in June the Council considers and approves a three-year plan for the City of San Marcos. Crafting a multi-year budget has been an important tool because it requires examination beyond current revenues and expenses and forces greater fiscal discipline. This year’s budget represents only a slight increase over last year, as the City has worked hard to curtail spending. The greatest share of the City’s $60 million General Fund Budget is dedicated to public safety ($24.4million), followed by general government ($19.8 million) and public works ($9 million). San Marcos receives revenue from a variety of sources to support its operations, including property taxes ($27.8 million), charges for services ($10.4 million), and licenses and permits ($4.2 million). The City also receives rental income of nearly $6 million annually from property it has retained. This added source of revenue has been critical to stabilizing the City budget during the recession and has allowed the City to avoid tapping into its $54.3 million in reserves to balance its budget and support operations.

4th of July Celebration

Because we serve individual investors and business owners, all of our energy and resources are dedicated to helping you reach your long-term financial goals. That’s why we live and work in your community. We meet with you face to face to discuss the key steps to creating your financial strategy.

So, as the City approves its fiscal plan for the coming year, there remains reason for both optimism as well as caution. The Council will continue to closely monitor the State’s actions.

The City of San Marcos’ Family Enrichment Program (FEP) will offer three special activities for families in July. Participants will make tie dye t-shirts on Thursday, July 16; homemade ice cream on Monday, July 20; and construct hula hoops on Thursday, July 30. All FEP events are held at 7 p.m. at the San Marcos Community Center, 3 Civic Center Drive. The cost for the events is $3 per person plus a one-time annual membership fee of $12 per family. Space is limited for all activities, so early registration is recommended. The deadline to register is two days prior to each activity. The FEP brings families together through arts, crafts, cooking and special events. The FEP is sponsored by San Marcos Community Services.   For more information, please call (760) 744-9000. MKT-1954A-A JUL 2008

When it comes to meeting your financial goals, you really only need to see one person. At Edward Jones, we strive to meet all your financial services needs while providing exceptional personalized service.

Despite the positive developments of a balanced budget and the restarting of an important project, the City remains very cautious of things to come. While green shoots of recovery are beginning to sprout, the recession is far from over. In addition, as of this writing, the State has yet to solve its $24 billion budget shortfall. The possibility of the State filling its budget gap by taking from local government, either through property taxes or gas fund revenues, looms very large. If the State takes either action, it would blow an approximately $1.5 - $2 million hole in the City’s balanced budget. It is very unclear what will happen in Sacramento, but a taking of our local revenue by the State government remains, perhaps, the biggest threat to our budget.

Family Enrichment Programs in July

The City of San Marcos is hosting its annual 4th of July Celebration on Saturday, July 4 at Bradley Park located at the corner of Linda Vista Dr. and Rancho Santa Fe Rd. in San Marcos. The evening’s free entertainment featuring the Sketch Band will begin at 5 p.m. followed by the country music of Southbound Jonny from 7 to 9 p.m. There will be free children’s activities including carnival games and party jumps.  Food concessions will include hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, nachos, snow cones, and fresh fruit. The “KYXK Simulcast” Fireworks Display starting at 9 p.m. is solely sponsored through community donations.  Local business and individuals donate their time and money to make the display possible.  For more information on the San Marcos Fireworks Fund Raising campaign, call (760) 744-9000 or visit www.san-marcos.net.

WHY GO ANYWHERE ELSE?

In addition to passing a balanced budget in June, the Council also voted to help revive the Marriott hotel project on Las Posas Road. The project, which was approved last year, came to a halt after its financing fell through as the recession caused a collapse of the credit markets. The City will repurchase the land it sold to the developers of the project for the same price ($3.9 million) of the original sale of the land in July of 2008. The repurchase will provide the developers with sufficient liquidity to restart the project. In return, the City will receive long term lease payments from the land, as well as additional transient occupancy tax revenue once the project opens next spring. Combined, these two sources of revenue will be a significant source of income for the City, and a project that had been derailed by the recession gets back on track.

Sign up for one week, or for the complete five-week session at a discounted rate.  Become a member and save even more! Camps run from July 6 and will culminate with an art show in the Artist Pavilion on Thursday, August 6 from 5 to 7 p.m. Call (760) 4366611 or email kleen@luxartinstitute.org for more information, or download a registration form at www.luxartinstitute.org.

The San Marcos Sheriff ’s Senior Volunteer Patrol (SVP) has instituted a local program, Timely Return of Alzheimer Clients (TRAC), patterned after the highly successful National Alzheimer Association’s Safe Return program. Wandering Alzheimer’s patients who are not found within 24 hours face great risk of injury or death. This new service helps local law enforcement personnel in case a patient is reported missing. The service is available, at no cost, to all San Marcos residents. The process begins with SVP personnel making a visit to the caretaker. A digital photo along with physical identification data are collected onto a form that is alphabetically placed in a confidential folder immediately accessible by law enforcement personnel in case a patient is reported missing. “This service is an invaluable tool to activate the Sheriff ’s support network and help unite the lost person with his or her caregiver,” said Sergeant Bob Jennings, the San Marcos SVP Coordinator. You can contact the SVP to enroll in the program at (760) 510-5291.

wh o a r e the

people in your neighborhood The Norita Family In 2005, the Norita family came to call San Elijo Hills their home, coming back to San Diego after 15 years in Orange County. They live in the Sagewood neighborhood and absolutely love being part of this community. You’ll recognize Chris’ name because of her frequent contributions to The Fountain. She also participates in the Women in San Elijo (WiSE) networking group. Chris owns a business called Budget $ense, which she started after a long career in the corporate world. As a budgeting and cash flow specialist, she enables individuals and couples to take charge of their household finances. She coaches her clients to establish effective budgeting tools and strategies and to shift their attitudes about money, making the financial juggling act less stressful. Chris has had a strong impact in the lives of her clients, many of which are here in the neighborhood. If you’re looking for a resource like this, you can reach her at (760) 715-0452 or budgetsense@cox.net. Her initial consultations are always free. Chris was born and raised in San Diego, the youngest of nine children. As a Navy brat, her husband Mark lived in many different US states and

w w w.th efo u n ta i n- o n li ne .co m

Guam, until settling in San Diego for college. Chris and Mark met and graduated from San Diego State University, then married about 3 years later. They got their MBAs together while their 1st son Nick was 2 years old. Mark is currently the Director of Facilities Management at UCSD. He also enjoys coaching youth sports, especially football. During down times, Mark, Chris, and their two boys are usually doing something outdoors as a family. Their boys, Nick and Aaron, enjoy a variety of sports. They both play baseball through San Marcos Youth Baseball and football through San Marcos Pop Warner. Nick is 13 and attends San Elijo Middle School. Aaron is 8 and attends San Elijo Elementary. While sports are a big part of the Norita household, they also enjoy walking, running, or riding the trails as a family, and going to the local beach. A common outing for their family includes a walk to Albertsons where they grab a sandwich and then head to the park. The one word Chris uses to describe family with her ‘island boys’ is “together”. When you see them out and about, stop and say hello. They are a great family to know here in the neighborhood.

ELEMENTA ELEMENTARY ARY

Introducing the 2009/2010 PTO Executive Board

Last Month’s Recap Almost every day of June something special and fun was happening at SEES! A couple of PTO highlights included the Mother/Son Baseball Tournament and the SEES Art and Music Night held at SEMS. Brendon Crossman started off our annual Mother/Son Baseball event by shouting “Play Ball” and play ball we did! The environment was lively and the athletes impressive (mothers included). Of course, this fun was only made possible by months of planning and preparation. Thank you to SEES parents Dianne Lewis and Michelle Winstead for spearheading the work on this event and to all of you volunteers for making it so successful once again. The Art and Music Night, held at SEMS, was a perfect way to wind down an incredible school year. The kids’ art work made for bright and beautiful surroundings while their singing voices warmed our hearts. A HUGE thank you goes to art coordinator Rachel Fitzsimmons, our amazing art docents, the event committee, and Mr. David for all of their hard work in making this event so impressive and enjoyable. Also, thank you Doug Hall, SEMS Principal, for allowing us to all come together in your multi-purpose room.

Community Partners Making a Difference The SEES PTO would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their recent and generous support of our school: Albertsons – for their ongoing support through their Community Partners program Art 4 Children – for their regular donations of a percentage of their proceeds Brownie Troop 4249 – for donating money towards an additional shade structure

Another special event was the All Volunteer Breakfast so graciously organized by Carolyn Kalicki and our teachers. It is inspiring to see, in one space, the number of people who work both publicly and behind the scenes to make SEES the happy, supportive environment in which our children learn and grow. Thank you to Carolyn and her committee for bringing all of us together to celebrate the benefits of our hard work.

Brownie Troop 4014- for donating money towards signage throughout campus

Finally, we wish to thank the patient and helpful office staff and school grounds keepers for supporting every activity the PTO has sponsored across the past year. Jessica Raya, Jeannie Jimenez, and Teri Swette (health aide turned part-time office worker) have been great partners in the office as have health aides Linda Keller and Melody Umadhay who often stepped up to help. We would be lost without our head custodian Luis Palacios and his night custodial staff of Angelina Martinez and Martin Garcia.

Cold Stone Creamery, San Marcos – for their support across the year

Bushikan Karate – for their regular donations of a percentage of their proceeds

Chick-fil-A – for providing meals to our Mother/Son Baseball players Lynda McDonell – for Gatorade for our mothers and sons The Jonville Team, Keller Williams Realty – for a portion of SEH garage sale proceeds

Kindergarten Orientation Mark your calendars for Kindergarten Orientation on August 27. Families of AM Kindergarteners will attend at 3 p.m. while PM families will attend at 4:30 p.m. You may wish to bring your checkbooks or cash if you would like to purchase official SEES Spirit Wear which is often worn on Fridays and on field trips.

FroYo Love - for donating free yogurt coupons to our Country Fair committee members Kim Rademacher – for donating the signage for our reserved parking spaces

Dear San Elijo Families, Teachers and Children of SEES, Mrs. Kalicki, and Mrs. McDonell, The past two years have gone by so fast and I feel as though we have made great strides here at SEES. Jenny Orlando and Molly Corbin  started this PTO in 2006, and I knew going into it, those were going to be hard shoes to fill.  With their help and two executive PTO  boards, we have successfully continued and even added on to our programs at our school.  SEES is known for its strong staff/family interaction and the bond continues to grow with the dedication of our families to our school and teachers to our children.  Thank you for all of the love/ideas/support that I have been given these past two years as PTO President.  I can proudly say that, along with two years of excellent and dedicated PTO Executive Board members and working alongside  our principal, Lynda McDonell, positive changes were made.  Thank you, Mary Russell

Ask the Doctor... i am having trouble with sneezing, red and itchy eyes after i mow the lawn. i love gardening and am worried that these symptoms will keep me from doing what i love. do i have to stop? b.r. Don’t hang up the gardening gloves yet. This sounds like hay fever, which is an allergic response to environmental allergens. If you are unsure, you can get an Allergy test done to determine this by doing what is called the prick-test to show which allergens will affect you. You can then try to avoid things as dust, pollen, grass. As well as avoidance, you can try over the counter anti-histamines like Claritin or benadryl. These medicines block your immune systems response. Watch for drowsiness. A corticosteroid nasal spray is also available to help stop the sneezing without getting sleepy. last, if you are affected by pollen, the weather forecast will state how high the count is. Happy gardening. osman Khawar, mD mPH www.pph.org

what medical danger is possible in the summer holiday months? J.v. With all of the kids out of school and July 4th and backyard barbeques going on, there are concerns to many activities. The dangers of overindulging in alcohol are well-known. Perhaps the most dangerous aspect is the loss of judgment allowing the body to do

incredibly stupid things that would usually not be considered like driving drunk. This is a danger to self, family and others. If you’re going to drink, make sure you have a designated driver or stay at home. Fireworks are also a common problem. other than the explosive risk, noise is a big problem with decibel levels in the 130-190 range (lawnmowers – 95, motorcycle – 110, rock concert- 120). Your best bet would be to pick up a pair of earplugs. Then it will be easier to hear that “last call” before you speak to your designated driver. Jeffrey Pearson, Do Family Practice/Sports medicine, www.pph.org

with all of our swimming this summer, is ear pain a problem? g.g. ear pain can have several causes from the common ear infection to pain resulting from nerve irritation. ear infections are commonplace and are not serious in themselves, but occasionally can lead to serious problems if the infection spreads to the bone or brain. As strange as it may seem, there is also ear pain that does not originate from the ear, but rather from nerves that travel to the ear from the head, neck or jaw joint (TmJ). Additionally, there are other series of nerves from the spine and inside the head that travel to the ear. occasionally a significant condition like throat cancer or a deep ear tumor can case pain. Go see your physician if pain persists. michael D. morelock, mD otolaryngology, www.pph.org

do you have a health-related question for the doctor? email editor@fountain-inc.com and the physicians at Palomar Pomerado Health will provide an answer for you here in The Fountain.

Understanding Autism

A

fter a recent news story about a neighborhood dispute that revolved around a child with autism, it was requested that we consider publishing an article about autism. I personally know at least half a dozen children affected by autism, several of which live right here in our community and attend our public schools. Until I sat down and really talked with these parents about autism, I didn’t realize how ostracizing the disorder can be. I got a glimpse of the pain and frustration these parents have endured in finding the best path for their kids while also finding a way to truly feel part of their own neighborhoods. These parents have had to go to great lengths to secure the resources and services needed to help their children assimilate. And yet, they are often judged by others for the way they go about it. Perhaps you know a child on your street with behavior issues and you never realized the child has autism. How do you befriend and welcome a child with autism in your neighborhood? Or, perhaps you are the parent of an autistic child. How do you find the local resources you need to help your child and your family?

Having at least a fundamental understanding of autism is important for everyone, including children, due to the prevalence of the condition. It is estimated that 1 in every 150 American children are affected by autism and almost 1 in 94 boys. When you think about that statistic, you realize the scope of autism. It’s also growing at a rate of 10-17% each year. “Autism knows no racial, ethnic, or social boundaries; family income levels; lifestyle choices; or educational levels, and can affect any family and any child. And although the overall incidence of autism is consistent around the globe, it is four times more prevalent in boys than in girls,” according to the Autism Society of America (ASA). Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is a spectrum disorder and often results in very different characteristics from one person to the next. You might notice it as a delay in language, difficulty initiating or maintaining a conversation, communication that is seen as talking ‘at’ others instead of ‘to’ them.’ On the playground an autistic child’s behavior may seem aggressive; they may have difficulty mixing with others or uncontrollable tantrums. Sometimes you’ll see it displayed in repeated words or phrases or in odd play or by appearing non-responsive to verbal cues. These are just a few of the common characteristics. You may have a child on your street that behaves oddly and, without even knowing it, you’ve isolated that family by not including that child in neighborhood play. It’s also so easy to cast judgment on someone’s parenting style without even knowing them or what they might be dealing with. Parents of autistic children often work with professionals to manage and instruct their children. What may appear as odd to you, could be a technique that has proven effective for this child. This is just one more reason why it’s so important to really get to know your neighbors and gain a little understanding before casting judgment. If you’re a parent, you’ve no doubt had an instance where your child threw a tantrum in a public place. Remember how people glared at you in judgment? This is a very common feeling for parents of children with autism. As I spoke with parents in our community with autistic children, they each had a story or two to tell. And while they have each experienced some level of misunderstanding, they felt it even more important to share the message to other parents whose affected children may not have yet been diagnosed or who are just learning about their child’s condition – that they are not alone and that there are many local resources available. We are learning that autism is treatable and that early diagnosis and intervention lead w w w.th efo u n ta i n- o n li ne .co m

to significantly improved outcomes. That’s why it’s so critical to catch it early and take advantage of the local services available. Do not be embarrassed and therefore not proactive in seeking a proper diagnosis. One of the biggest challenges with autism is that you have to become your child’s advocate. State legislation guarantees services that can have a tremendous impact on your child and it’s up to you to discover what they are. The earlier you start to address the disorder, the better your child will be. Here are some signs to look for in the children in your life: • Lack of or delay in spoken language • Repetitive use of language and/or motor mannerisms (e.g., hand-flapping, twirling objects) • Little or no eye contact • Lack of interest in peer relationship • Lack of spontaneous or make-believe play • Persistent fixation on parts of objects

If you suspect your child might be affected, your primary care physician is a great place to start. You can contact San Marcos Unified School District and ask for (demand) a test. Developmental testing is free through the state for children under three. San Marcos has some fantastic resources, such as the Twin Oaks Preschool Program, that can ensure your child gets support long before kindergarten begins, but you have to get in there and find the services available. That’s why networking with other parents is so critical. Don’t be afraid to ask other parents for information and resources. Some other highly recommended resources include: San Diego Regional Center (www.sdrc.org) C3 – Children’s Care Connection (www.howkidsdevelop.com) Exceptional Family Resource Center (www.efrconline.org) San Diego Autistic Society (www.sd-autism.org) San Marcos Unified School District (www.smusd.org) Autism Society of America (www.autism-society.org) Early intervention is key and there are so many resources available today. Don’t suffer alone and don’t be embarrassed for your child. Instead, use the community around you to get the help you need. If you ever see a kid struggling to fit in or misbehaving, use the opportunity to set a good example for the children around you. Don’t ignore the child or roll your eyes, but instead find a way to interact with them. Make a point to provide a social prompt for the child. Introduce your own kids to them. If you don’t know how to interact effectively with the child, ask the parent. They will be happy to help you know the ‘right’ things to say. Autistic children want friends as much as any child, they just don’t naturally have the skills to interact in a socially acceptable way. Like most things, the best way to learn is to practice. As a community, we can give these children plenty of opportunities to practice social interaction and understanding. We can also provide plenty of opportunities for our own children to accept those who are different, not to label them as weird or strange, but to embrace their differences and to help them work through the challenges they face so they can live full and meaningful lives.

Picnic in the Backyard S

ummertime is almost synonymous with the word picnic; nothing evokes the relaxed pleasure of a July afternoon like dining al fresco. Instead of planning a regular event with elegant dishes and formal seating, why not try a fun, family-style picnic instead? It’s a casual, fun way to mix things up with friends and neighbors of all ages. First, determine where you will set your get-together up. Ensure that there is adequate shade, which can be from surrounding trees, a gazebo, pop-up canopy or patio umbrella. A few days beforehand, confirm that there aren’t any ants or other critters in the nearby vicinity to crash your party. A quick sweep and weeding session is also a good idea to neaten things up! Whether you have grass or concrete, make sure that guest seating is comfortable. Lawns can make do with a standard tablecloth; but if you have a hard surface, use a quilt and some throw pillows, or outdoor floor and chair cushions, to add softness and encourage lingering. They will get dirty so make sure they’re machine washable! Scatter some large trays around, so that platters of food can be placed on something steady, and not risk getting knocked over. Having several also means that each guest has somewhere to place their drink while eating. To save on the waste of disposable tableware, use it sparingly! There’s nothing wrong with offering melamine plates, plastic cups and stainless steel cutlery that’s already stashed in your kitchen. Avoid using throwaway containers to serve with; sending food out in baking tins and glass cookware is fine so long as everyone is just a little bit careful. Have large washable napkins for visitors to use in their laps, but because food can be messy, paper napkins are also an essential to have on hand. This will greatly reduce the large bags of trash that spring up after an outdoor party, which, environmentally speaking, is the responsible thing to do. If you are serving cans of pop and bottles of juice, have a small separate bin for recyclables as well.

In terms of the menu, spend less time playing host and more time having fun by preparing strategically. Haul out the cooler and have drinks on ice, whether they are in single servings or in pitchers. Cook and chill dishes beforehand that are designed to be perfect picnic fare. These are foods that aren’t delicate, and can be served at room temperature. Sandwiches, chips and dip, individual tortes and quiches, sliced quick breads; these are all solid choices that are easy to serve and eat. Pasta and grain dishes that bind together are another great option for a main course. Nuts and dried berries are a healthy starter or side. Cookies, bars, even chilled fruit pops make for delicious and portable desserts. Avoid fare such as lettuce salads, soups or thin sauces – these aren’t easy to keep or eat. If you can’t eat it with a fork or your hand, then things are already getting too complicated. Because you’re eating so low to the ground, take care that any entertainment you plan doesn’t run into where guests are seated. Why not play some popular board games, or dominoes, chess, bingo or charades? Some can be played between two people, others can be enjoyed in groups. Look up some party ice-breakers that would be appropriate for your attendees; these are a fun way to get to know your visitors and always generate a lot of laughs. It’s also a perfect time for someone to bring their guitar and play, whether as a featured performer, or just as a pleasant accompaniment to everything else going on. Be creative and flexible, as people may just be happiest to have a chat and catch up in small groups. In a way, this era of staycations makes a backyard picnic all the more logical. What makes it so special is that element of casual entertainment; it means a level of comfort often only reserved for your most special of friends and neighbors. It’s also a great way to entertain at the last-minute – get some takeout, grab a blanket, make a quick call to invite others over and have a great time! After all, it’s summertime.

Planning for Freedom S

o life is moving along and summer’s in full swing, at least for the majority of kids anyway. We all know the adults are the ones arranging the fun activities, foods, places, etc. Summer can feel like you actually have less time and money to cover it all. How do you enjoy the time you have left this season and keep your spending at bay? With the right ideas and motivation, planning will give you the freedom to make better choices to really enjoy the rest of summer and handle the coming school year.

have a neighborhood barbeque. Make it a potluck and bring out the outdoor games. Making those community connections are important for you and your kids.

Pace Yourself. With jobs, household responsibilities, and other obligations, the extra pressure of filling the summer can send you over your time and money limits. Take care not to get to the point where you give up on tracking your spending and have to deal with it later. That can limit the enjoyment you get out of the activities and will add to your stress level once summer’s ended. Plan for the Shift to School. You know how quickly summer can fly by. Before you know it, school’s here. In the weeks ahead, allot a little more time, preferably with your kids, to figure out what each child will need. Start again with what you already have. Then account for special needs like growth spurts (full wardrobe vs. a few updates) and age specific school items. Preparing for the school year will take a bit of time and can take a fair share of expense. But if you plan for what’s needed, there won’t be any surprises. Chris Norita is a budgeting and cash flow specialist. She can help you take charge of your household finances. Contact her at (760)715-0452 or budgetsense@cox.net.

Consider foregoing the typical activities that can cost you a small fortune and look into some less expensive fun alternatives. I know planning ahead can remove a lot of the spontaneity. But a little planning on the front end can mean more enjoyment in what you do and less stress afterwards.

Assess Your Resources. One way to stretch your time and dollars is to consider what you already have. What’s in your home, in your neighborhood, in your town that can add to your summer fun? Take into account other costs for activities farther from home (i.e. transportation, snacks and meals, lodging, etc.). Talk it through beforehand with your spouse so you guys are on the same page. Also, don’t let all that free time of summer blow your budget. If you have the financial tools to figure out how you’re doing, check your progress. If you’re not doing well or you don’t have those tools, resolve not to add to the problem by potentially over-spending. Select a reasonable target amount to spend for the rest of the season and try to plan activities that can be covered by that. Keep track as you go so you can plan better for next summer. Go On a Vacation. If your budget doesn’t accommodate a big vacation, why not try a staycation. It’s the new buzz word. You can stay in town and enjoy our local trails, parks, or other outdoor areas within minutes of home. Another option is day-tripping it to nearby areas like Balboa Park. Don’t forget about the great deals, like free museum admission days during the week. Check out San Diego Bargain Mama for more discounts and coupons (http://www.sandiegobargainmama.com/home.html ). Entertain Friends and Family. For family coming from out of town, don’t feel like you always have to host them everywhere because it’s your town. Some days can include the touristy-type activities while other days can be more local, casual outings. Talk it through with them ahead as well, so each family can plan their expenses. Use any member or work discounts you have to minimize the costs. If you don’t have memberships anywhere, look into Go San Diego cards (http://www.smartdestinations.com/) which offers discounts prices for activities on consecutive days – perfect for non-local guests. For local family and friends, agree to switch off the hosting or at least share in the costs. Have a Barbeque. A barbeque doesn’t have to just be in your own backyard. Enjoy the outdoors even more, wheel out your BBQ to the front, and

Organic Pest Control T

he more I learn about organic gardening techniques, the more I realize that we really don’t have to use chemical pesticides to control garden insect pests. More often than no, we can look to Nature for a solution that is very inexpensive, widely available, and is most importantly sustainable. The goal is to reduce or eliminate those practices that will have a negative impact on the environment both now and in the future. In this installment, I will share with you some simple ways to all but eliminate the use of pesticides in your garden.

you’re providing habitat, shelter, and alternative food sources (such as pollen and nectar), something many predators need as part of their diet.

In Nature, each insect serves a purpose although that may seem hard to believe when your rose bushes are covered with Aphids and your plants are eaten to the nub by caterpillars and grubs. Many insects will actually keep your plants clean and disease free while devouring the so called pests that keep the pesticide industry in full swing. The way to establish the a home base for those beneficial insects is to create a garden insectary or small garden plot of flowering plants designed to attract and harbor beneficial insects. These “good insects” prey on many common garden insect pests and offer the gardener a safer, natural alternative to pesticides. The garden insectary is a form of “companion planting,” based on the positive attributes plants can share in deterring pests, acquiring nutrients, or attracting natural predators. By becoming more diverse with your plantings,

Pest Insect

Predator Insect

Here’s an example. You can control aphids with an aphid predator like aphidius, and you can encourage aphidius to set up shop by planting sunflowers or lupin. Of course, the aphid predators need the pests to be present in order to eat, thrive, and reproduce—that is, they need aphids to be found in and around the general area you’re trying to protect from the aphids. But that’s where stocking your insectary with the appropriate plants comes in. The idea of inviting the pests in to munch on plants in your insectary may seem alarming, until you understand that you are doing so to encourage host-specific pests. The pests remain on the desired plant in your insectary yet provide an ideal breeding ground for the associated predators and parasites. Your insectary plot does not have to be large, just big enough to hold six to seven varieties of plants that attract insects. Once the garden has matured, you can watch your personal security force of beneficial insects do the work for you. And since our homes are for the most part very close to one another, the insectary plants can be disbursed and maintained by several neighbors in the same area. Many of us have backyards that meet up with up to four other yards; this is the perfect set-up for sharing in the responsibility for maintaining the battalion of predator insects. Use Table A to figure out which beneficial insects you want to attract, based on your particular pest problems. Then use Table B to see what you should plant to attract the beneficial insects (predator insects). Note that in Table A, pest species may occur in more than one row. Similarly, in Table B, predator species may be listed in more than one row. Find the combination of predators and insectary plants that maximizes the benefit to your particular pest problem. Until next time, keep it green, and happy gardening!

Summer Scrapbooking T

his summer a lot more of us are staying close to home. What a great time to catch up on that scrapbooking project youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been putting off. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling a bit intimidated or overwhelmed by the thought, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be. Scrapbooking is supposed to be fun! Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a quick overview for those of you getting ready to start that will hopefully get you fired up to dig in and have some fun scrapbooking this summer. One of your first steps will be to gather together some basic supplies. These include a hole punch, sharp scissors, a bone folder (if you also make cards), eraser, ruler, adhesives, and a paper trimmer. Now youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to begin â&#x20AC;&#x153;the huntâ&#x20AC;? in your neighborhood craft storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scrapbooking aisle. One easy way to get started is to buy a kit that includes an album, paper, possibly stickers, and other embellishments. Try to pick an album that goes with your theme. For example, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just come back from a vacation in Aruba, an album with palm trees and turquoise blue papers would be a perfect match. Or, if putting together a more general-themed album, a black, tan, or white album would be great. I scrapbook my family holiday celebrations every year in one album that includes Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. A further step is to organize your photos. This may seem like a daunting task, especially if you have years of photos. My advice is to pick a theme, and just work on the photos exclusively for that album (example: your wedding, babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first year, or your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday parties through the years). Once you have chosen your theme and selected the photos, you can start assembling the pages without gluing anything down. You can put the photos and the embellishments (stickers, concert tickets, menus, etc.) in one page protector at a time. The album that you purchase should be filled with clear, acetate page protectors that usually contain white cardstock paper. By filling the page protectors with your souvenirs and specific photos, you are building the structure of the album. After completing this step, you can go back and assemble each page. This is where you choose the type of paper you want for your background, the basic design of the page, etc. If you are working with digital photos, you may want to go about things differently. What I do is download my digital photos onto my computer in a folder named for an event, e.g., â&#x20AC;&#x153;Easter 2009.â&#x20AC;? Then I write a basic outline of the way I want to â&#x20AC;&#x153;tell the story.â&#x20AC;? Once I have this plan of action, I print the photos, one at a time, in the size that I want for each layout. This gives me the option of enlarging especially good photos for a portrait-type page. Conversely, if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m depicting an Easter egg hunt, I might want to print out a lot of action photos at a smaller size, to depict the flurry of activity involved in the hunt. Stumped for inspiration on how to design your scrapbook pages? Try fashion magazines for ideas as to page layout and color coordination. Also,

everyday things such as the colors in your backyard, or even your favorite outfits, may also be sources for your creativity! Scrapbooking magazines like Scrapbooks, Etc and Creating Keepsakes can give you great ideas and even show a basic â&#x20AC;&#x153;sketchâ&#x20AC;? for a page that you can copy right out of the magazine. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called â&#x20AC;&#x153;scrapliftingâ&#x20AC;? and it is perfectly okay to copy a designerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideas, as long as the projects that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on are for personal use (not for re-sale). Wondering where you can get all of those great supplies? Everybody knows about Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, but did you know that you can also get scrapbooking supplies at Wal-Mart, Target, and even at Ross and TJ Maxx (look in the stationary department). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to browse the aisles in these stores. Wal-Mart has a craft department where you can find everything from beading, sewing, and wedding supplies to baking items. You will often see items that can be repurposed for scrapbooking, such as silk flowers, ribbons, lace, and beaded embellishments. Lastly, I want to let you in on a little secret . . . how to complete those pages when you are flat out of inspiration. Many stores carry â&#x20AC;&#x153;already put togetherâ&#x20AC;? pages. All you need to do is slip your photos in the frames, and, voila! Your page is finished! I hope you enjoy your adventure into scrapbooking. It is a very worthwhile hobby that benefits your friends and family, as well as future generations. After completing a few page layouts, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always filled with a sense of accomplishment and the desire to keep going, and finish that album! Happy scrapping to you!

business spotlight Green Junk Machine Ian Rebello, www.greenjunkmachine.com, 888-PAC-JUNK

You’ve probably seen the truck around the community, but have you met the faces behind the Green Junk Machine? Ian Rebello and David Rodgers started Green Junk Machine after losing their jobs last summer. They had long talked about starting a business together and when the economic downturn left them unemployed, they decided there was no better time to make it happen. Ian lives in San Elijo Hills. He is a graduate of San Marcos High School and is thrilled to see the success of his new business venture because he’s finally able to have an impact on what he saw as a huge problem. Ian’s mom lives in Escondido near the landfill and the idea for this business came after years of watching

trucks as they hauled loads of stuff to the landfill. Ian was amazed to see so many usable items go to the landfill and he knew there had to be a better way. Today, Green Junk Machine is doing its part to help this problem. Green Junk Machine is an eco-friendly junk removal service. They show up, load your junk and then take it away. The best part is that they are committed to making sure they recycle as much of your junk as possible instead of just hauling it off to local landfills. Green Junk Machine has established connections with a wide variety of local agencies so everything is properly recycled, disposed of, or donated. They are usually able to recycle about 60% of any given load. For example, anything with a power cord gets recycled. 100% of mattresses are recycled. Any furniture is salvaged. Metals go to a metal recycler, etc. In addition, Green Junk Machine takes it a step further by donating a portion of the revenue from each job to I Love a Clean San Diego. No job is too big or small for the Green Junk team. They work in both residential and commercial environments - whether you need help cleaning out your garage or attic or removing unwanted bulk trash and tenant ‘leave behinds’. They also ensure that electronic waste is environmentally recycled and that the data is wiped clean for your protection. One thing that makes Green Junk Machine so unique is their professional image. Ian and David wanted to bring a better image to the industry. When the Green Junk team shows up at your door they are uniformed and professional. Customers are raving about the service. You can learn more about them at www.greenjunkmachine.com or by calling 1-888-PACJUNK (888-722-5865).
