PUSD’s K-8 school is given name


BY EMILY SORENSEN After being referred to only as School 39 since its beginnings, the under-construction K-8 school finally has its name. The newest school in Poway Unified School District, which will be located in Del Sur, next to Del Norte High School, will be called Design 39 Campus. The name was brainstormed for months by the school’s principal, Sonya Wrisley and her teaching team, with some input from district staff. Wrisley and her team presented “Design 39 Campus” as their recommended name, with “Camino Ridge Elementary” as the other final choice. Other names considered were Design for Learning and Camino Ridge Design Campus. The tagline Wrisley presented for their name choice was “the future is a place we create.” The choice of campus rather than school was deliberate. “School is a finite place,” said Wrisley. “We want [Design 39 Campus] to be a learning experience, not a learning environment.” As of now, Design 39 Campus does not have a suggested mascot. Wrisley said she wanted to wait for the students to See CAMPUS, Page A18

RB girls lead effort to cheer up tornado victims BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK Two Rancho Bernardo girls have turned their feelings of sympathy for young Oklahoma tornado victims into action. Gurveen Rekhi, a 14-year-old Bernardo Heights eighth-grader, and her 10-year-old sister, Diya Rekhi, a Highland Ranch Elementary fourth-grader, recently sent 222 stuffed animals to students at Briarwood and Plaza Towers elementary schools in Moore, Okla. Both schools were leveled by a tornado on May 20. “I was shocked to see the damage,” Diya said. “I wanted to hold a toy drive to help the kids have stuffed animals to sleep with because I felt for them.” “I wanted to make a difference and bring smiles to their faces,” Gurveen said.

City's last original RSVP member retires 4S Ranch's July 4th festival requires tickets BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK

The last original Retired Senior Volunteer Patrol member — Frank Terschan — has retired 21 years after joining the group that started a national trend. Terschan, 89, graduated with San Diego Police Department’s original RSVP unit on June 15, 1992. It was composed entirely of Rancho Bernardo residents — 17 men and four women — who were ages 60-plus and wanted to assist police by performing free vacation house checks and making sure seniors who lived alone were OK through the You Are Not Alone (YANA) program. The latter Terschan said is his favorite task. By the time of his June 19 retirement, Terschan had volunteered for 5,437 hours, was the RB unit’s field assistant administrator and a field training officer. Two or three years after forming RSVP, Terschan said duties assigned to members — now around 450 citywide — began growing. They now include patrolling bank and school parking lots, giving out handicapped parking citations, directing traffic during events and around accident scenes plus helping the everstretched police with other tasks. These include fingerprinting children, checking expired license tags and running vehicle plates to see if they are stolen.

tirement in 1987, he moved from Anaheim Hills to RB’s Oaks North neighborhood. He joined the Lions Club and when hearing about RSVP, signed up. “It sounded like a very nice place (and way) to give back to the community and be active,” he said. “I did not want to sit at home relaxing and doing nothing.” Though planning to remain very active with the Lions plus singing and dancing at Casa de las Campanas, where he moved a few years ago, Terschan said he decided it was time to retire from RSVP. “It requires you to be sharp, aware and Frank Terschan, left, receiving a plaque with vigilant,” he said. “I do not take that lighthis insignia, badge and ID card from RB ly and want to retire before I am not doRSVP Administrator Richard Van Overmeiren.

Peters ‘frustrated’ with D.C. complacency, Obama’s ‘disengagement’ BY STEVE DREYER Congressman Scott Peters says he is approaching the six-month mark of his first term with a handful of first impressions of Washington, D.C. He says he’s a bit frustrated by what he perceives is an overall attitude of “acceptance and complacency” among his peers regarding the state of politics in the nation’s capital. However, Peters says is somewhat hopeful that he and other freshmen members of Congress can nudge that process away from party partisanship and toward a more consensus-building atmosphere. “We need to start fixing and stop fighting,” Peters said. Peters, a Democrat, says he is “very frustrated” with the leadership style of President Barack Obama, declaring him to be “the most disengaged person you could imagine.” “I am very disappointed in him,” Peters said of the president. “We could really use his engagement.”

CONGRESSMAN SCOTT PETERS Peters narrowly defeated incumbent Republican Brian Bilbray last November to represent the 52nd District, which extends from the coast to take in much of inland North County. The La Jolla resident is a former San Diego City Council member and port commissioner.

Meeting Friday with members of the editorial board of San Diego MainStreet Media (owners of this newspaper), Peters said his first six months have been both hectic and rewarding. He said he’s been able to forge productive legislative relationships with key congressional members but that some of the attitudes within the Beltway leave him a bit puzzled. “San Diego is the home of collaborative cooperation,” Peters said. “In Washington, it’s more hierarchical. The first thing they want to know there is what school did you attend and what’s your title.” During his first six months Peters said he has focused on the federal budget, the economy and clean technology. San Diego, he said, is the “Silicon Valley of the military” and that the commandant of the Marine Corps is very interested in developing ways to use solar energy in the field as a replacement for petroleum. Peters has also been involved in help-

ing veterans adjust to civilian life. Peters said there seems to be “a lot of motivation to do immigration (reform)” in Congress and to achieve some kind of tax code reform. Earlier this month Peters introduced the “Strengthening the Resiliency of Our Nation on the Ground (STRONG) Act.” He said the act will save taxpayers money over the long run by having the federal government be more proactive, rather than reactive, in providing disaster relief funding in the wake of wildfires, hurricanes, and drought. He also called on leaders in both the House and Senate to take definitive action to stop student loan interest rates from doubling on July 1. In the coming months Peters said his office will conduct a series of local workshops designed to help businesses of all sizes prepare for the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare. His “Congress on Your Corner” Town Hall-style public forum will be

coming to Rancho Bernardo in August, he said. The congressman said he will launch a re-election effort early next year. However, he did have few comments regarding his first declared Republican opponent, former City Councilman Carl DeMaio of Rancho Bernardo. “Carl is not right for the district,” Peters said. Noting DeMaio’s reluctance to compromise and his penchant to achieve political goals through ballot initiatives, Peter said, “You can’t do a national ballot initiative.” Voter registration in the 52nd District is roughly one-third Democratic, one-third Republican and onethird independent. Peters said he wants voters to disregard political labels and study the qualifications and accomplishments of candidates. “I’m not Nancy Pelosi, Donna Frye or Bob Filner. I am what I am. We need to break through the labels.”


W. R. “Bob” Copthorne 1919 – 2011

World War II veteran Bob Copthorne passed away in San Diego, CA, his birthplace, on June 10, 2013, at almost 94. Bob spent most of his youth in Canton, Ohio. During WWII, Bob drove to Arizona to enlist in the Navy and became an aircraft carrier fighter pilot. After the war, his adventurous spirit led to a long sailing voyage through the Panama Canal. For many years, Bob owned the VW dealership in New Philadelphia, Ohio, and retired to Fallbrook, CA, where he enjoyed golfing and swimming. He later joined two of his sisters at the Remington Club in Rancho Bernardo, CA. Bob was the youngest and last of six children, who all eventually returned to their childhood roots in Southern

California. Bob was preceded in death by his wife, Charlotte; brother, Dick Copthorne; and sisters, Annette Miller Wardrop, Alice Cashin, Geneva Shafer and Betty Copthorne. He is survived by daughters, Lisa Broughton of Concord, CA, and Carolyn Gilliland and Kay Anderson of Canton, Ohio; several grandchildren; and many who called him “Uncle Bob”, including local resident, Carol (Mrs. Jon) Groseth. Funeral services will be held at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in Point Loma. Please sign the guest book online at obituaries/pomeradonews.

Samuel N. Robinson 1927 – 2013

Samuel N. Robinson, 86, passed on Wednesday, May 1, 2013, in San Diego, California. He was born

January 16, 1927, to Frank and Minnie (Tresser) Robinson in Stamford, Connecticut, and was the older brother of the late Myrna Robinson Richman. He graduated from Vermont Academy, and received a Bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Bridgeport (Connecticut), and another in music (oboe performance) from the New England Conservatory in Boston, Massachusetts. After graduation from Vermont Academy, Sam served his country in the United States Merchant Marine in WWII, and in that capacity traveled the world helping supply fighter ships in both the Atlantic and Pacific theatres. After the war ended, he helped repatriate German POWs, and befriended one in particular, treating him with kindness and forgiveness in the true spirit of his Jewish faith. After his graduation from the New England Conservatory in 1957, Sam began a long and satisfying career both as a working musician and a music educator. He was principal oboist with the San Antonio, Texas, Symphony for several seasons, and an active freelance performer in the New York City region. He also served as principal oboist for numerous orchestras throughout the San Diego, California, area, where he’d moved in 1973

with his wife Evelyn (nee Mackintosh). Colleagues have called the oboe and English horn reeds he crafted by hand some of the finest they have ever used. Sam was a world traveler, a private pilot, and an avid student of politics, the paranormal, morality and ethics, and justice and spirituality. He was also a wine connoisseur who loved a lively discussion over a glass or two from his collection, most especially with his beloved only son, Franklin Anthony Robinson, born September 30, 1978. In addition to Franklin, Sam is survived by his former wives, Olga Petrosky of Grand Prairie, Texas, and Evelyn Hiller of San Diego, California; niece, Beth Edelman of Rexford, New York; cousin, Norman Greene of San Diego, California; and innumerable friends and colleagues. Funeral services were held on Monday, May 6, 2013, at El Camino Memorial, Sorrento Valley, San Diego, California, with Rabbi Wayne Dosick officiating. A memorial service is planned for July in San Diego. Franklin Robinson offered the eulogy, including a cappella rendition of Psalm 27, the final Bible passage he had sung to his father during this life. Before his passing Sam expressed the personal nature of his faith and relationship with his

great God, so we take comfort in the fact that he now abides in the presence of the Most High and is blessed in life everlasting and joy forever more in Heaven and also in Earth when the world to come arrives. May it be soon! Donations may be made to Temple Adat Shalom, Poway CA; Junior Blind of America Los Angeles; or UC San Diego Foundation for research into Schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s.

Age does not slow down synagogue's prayer leader

BY EMILY SORENSEN Those attending Ner Tamid Synagogue might know 96-year-old Molly Cohen, but now everyone else will as well. Cohen has been leading the Haftorah prayer at Ner Tamid for over 25 years, and hasn’t let advanced age slow down her dedication to her synagogue, or service to her community. Cohen is fairly unique in her performance of the Haftorah, as she said that not many women of her age know Hebrew. “Women my age didn’t go to Hebrew school,” she said. “But my mother always encouraged me to grab education wherev-

er I could. Hebrew school was free if you couldn’t afford it, and my mother sent me.” Cohen’s par ticipation in services dates back to the beginnings of Ner Tamid. Before the synagogue was built, said Cohen, the attendees met in people’s homes, then rented schools for ser vices. The group decided to rent a hall in order to have large services, and Cohen was asked to read the Haftorah, which is done by singing certain notes. “Until recently, only men did the prayers,” said Cohen. “[The leaders of Ner Tamid at the time] thought it would make us so modern [to have Cohen

read the Haftorah].” Cohen initially protested, saying she didn’t sing well enough to do the Haftorah. “I told them I can’t carry a tune in a bucket,” said Cohen. After speaking to her friend, the cantor at Temple Adat Shalom, she ended up taking 10 singing lessons from her friend, in order to learn to sing the notes needed for the Haftorah. The response to her doing the Haftorah was extremely positive. “It was encouraging,” said Cohen. She has been doing the Haftorah at services “quite frequently” ever since, generally once a month. Born and raised in Detroit,

Cohen and her husband Sidney moved to San Diego in 1966, after a doctor suggested a move to California might alleviate Sidney’s bad allergies. After exploring places to live in California, the Cohens settled in San Diego. “Detroit is a good place to be from,” said Cohen, “but coming to California was a whole new world.” The Cohens opened a card and gift shop, The Paper Tree, in downtown San Diego. Downtown San Diego was very different at the time, with a few banks and not much else. “We could keep banker’s hours,” said Cohen, which made their retail experience in San Diego

much less stressful than Detroit. “We were the gift shop at the time, because there was no Old Town or Horton Plaza.” Despite nearing 100, Cohen keeps busy with Ner Tamid and services at Seacrest Village, a Jewish retirement village in Poway where she lives. She used to be involved with the women’s group Hadassah, and was even awarded by the group for her work with them. Cohen partially attributes her health with advice her mother gave her: don’t get angry, don’t get insulted right away. “I’ve learned that it’s terrible to be angry. Anger is a terrible emotion that causes


MOLLY COHEN all sorts of physical ailments,” said Cohen. Another piece of advice from her “very wise” mother: “Have the good manners of a queen, but be as humble as her servant.”

Willow Grove parents upset by kindergarten lottery results BY EMILY SORENSEN Five Willow Grove Elementary School parents spoke at the school board meeting held Monday night, upset over the exclusion of their children from the school’s kindergarten next year. The parents were a few out of 55 families who did not make it into the school’s kindergarten, due to overcrowding. Willow Grove held a lottery to fill its kindergarten that is full to capacity. The excluded families, who all live in the Community Facilities District and whose Mello Roos taxes go to supporting Willow Grove, have been directed to enroll their children at Adobe Bluffs Elementary School, located five miles away. They will remain on a waiting list for the school. Part of the reason for the overcrowding of Willow Grove’s kindergarten classes is the presence of a transitional kindergarten

program on the campus. Jennifer Duncan, whose child was not selected for Willow Grove’s kindergarten, asked that the district move the transitional kindergarten to an underpopulated school, rather than keep it at a full-to-capacity school like Willow Grove. Another parent, Michael Smith, expressed his concerns about the logistics of taking his kindergartner to Adobe Bluffs, which is five miles away rather than in walking distance, like Willow Grove, and starts an hour earlier. The parents referenced a letter apparently sent by Willow Grove Principal Kimberlie Rens, which said that if the parents did not send their kindergartners to Adobe Bluffs for the 2013-2014 school year, they would not be kept on the Willow Grove waiting list and couldn’t return to the school in the future. Associate Superintendent Mel Robertson said that Rens’ statement was inaccurate, and said she would work with the parents on this issue.

In other business, the board passed a temporary budget in order to be in compliance with the California Department of Education. The budget is expected to change, most likely in the district’s favor, when the governor signs the state’s budget. Currently, the 2013-2014 budget is expected to end in a deficit of $21.6 million, due to a number of one-time costs, including Common Core materials, books and materials for Design 39 Campus, the new K-8 school that will open in August 2014 in Del Sur, and the renewed computer lease program, which will generate revenue for the district in the future. If this current budget stands, the district will need to make over $20 million in cuts during the 2014-15 school year in order to end the school year in the black. When the governor signs the state budget, the amount of cuts needed in 2014-15 is expected to lessen, due to other funds being freed up from reserves.

North County wineries striving to harvest visitor interest BY LEIGH DEWEY When Southern California wine-tasting tours are being mapped out, the road most frequently travelled often leads up Interstate 15 to the Temecula Valley in

South Riverside County. “You mention San Diego County wineries to people and they say ‘Temecula,’” said Samantha Pewitt, marketing manager of the San Diego County Vintner’s Association, whose members

include 40 of the estimated 70 wineries in the county. “That causes a lot of frustration.” And while she concedes that Temecula wineries have been very successful marketing themselves to San Diego and beyond, “we have wonderful wineries right here in our own backyard.” Pewitt said the public is becoming more aware of what San Diego-area wineries and vineyards, most of them family-owned, have to offer. She said the atmosphere local tasting rooms provide and the rural setting that surrounds most of the wineries is drawing increasing numbers of visitors. “You get a real hometown feeling with wineries here,” Pewitt said. “There is a wine country, intimate feeling people like.” A drive to most local wineries takes visitors into rustic areas,

Visitors to Alipiano Vineyard & Winery in Escondido can enjoy outdoor patio dining with great views. away from freeways and cities, down scenic roads leading to valleys and hillsides that are home to the vineyards and tasting rooms where the final products can be enjoyed. Interest in San Diego County grape growing and winer-

ies is also on the increase, she said, because word is spreading that quality wines can be experienced where it is produced close to home. “Ten years ago, there were only about a dozen wineries in San Diego County,” said Pewitt, whose

family has owned Bernardo Winery since 1889. Recent changes to the San Diego County Zoning Ordinance have made it easier for people to open wineries and tasting rooms. Small wineries that could only sell wholesale can now sell to the public, increasing the opening of new tasting rooms. “Smaller wineries are popping up all over,” said Ross Rizzo Jr., president of the San Diego County Vintner’s Association, and president and winemaker at Bernardo Winery in Rancho Bernardo, the oldest producing winery in Southern California. Rizzo attributes much of the success of San Diego County wines to their diversity. Varying climates within the county can create a different tasting wine from label to label, although they See WINE, Page A14

Services Include: Dr. Dan Einhorn, is a Physician and Medical Director of the Scripps Whittier Diabetis Institute, President of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, and Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCSD. About three years ago, Dr. Einhorn discovered The Change Fitness after one of his patients experienced dramatic health improvements and better overall fitness after committing to a workout routine with The Change Fitness. “This is the first workout program I eagerly look forward to. I love the intensity, total body workout, safety and efficiency of the workouts. The strengthening has been obvious and has helped my other sports and exercises. I recommend The Change Fitness to everyone.” Dr. Scott Mubarak, Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at Children’s Hospital found out about the Change Fitness two years ago. “Since working with Chris, I have developed better posture, core strength and endurance. His method has helped me in all activities related to my profession as well as fun.”


The training method used at The Change Fitness has been shown to achieve 55% better results when compared to traditional weight training methods. Studies have shown that strength training decreases bad cholesterol, stabilizes blood sugar levels for diabetics and increases bone density to prevent osteoporosis. It helps achieve better overall health, increases strength, decreases size, reduces fat % and improves mobility and function.


The workout style is extremely efficient and requires only two 20-minute workouts per week to see real results. Flexible scheduling is available to accommodate busy work and lifestyles.

are produced from the same variety of grape. “We all benefit from our micro-climates,” he said. “A sirah produced in Ramona tastes different than a sirah made from grapes grown in San Marcos.” Rizzo said he has noticed a definite increase in visitors to the winery and interest in local wines in the past few years. “The numbers of people we are seeing (visiting local wineries) are exploding,” said Peter Clarke, who with wife, Denise, owns the Altipiano Vineyard & Winery above the San Pasqual Valley in Escondido. “The Temecula Valley has a large open valley susceptible to ver y large operations,” he said. “San Diego County will barely scratch the surface of Temecula’s volume, and that’s a good thing. Each San Diego County winery is an individual, unique experience. My wife and I don’t want to expand. We want to contact people one on one. Most of the heads of corporate wineries have probably never made their way into the tasting room.” Rich and Zoe McClellan, who established Highland Hills Winer y in Ramona in 2005, opened their tasting room in October. Since then, Rich said he has seen an upswing in visitors and a growing appreciation of San Diego-area wines. “The numbers are gradually picking up,” he said. “People who come to tastings are very positive about the San Diego wine industry and re-

Fallbrook Winery was established in 1995. It’s one of about 70 wineries in San Diego County. turn bringing other people. We’d like everyone visiting Temecula wineries to at least be aware that there is great winetasting here.” Ira Gourvitz, who established Fallbrook Winery in 1995 with his wife, Rebecca, believes the popularity of San Diego County wineries is growing because the quality of local wines is improving. “Some better winemakers are appearing and we want to support that,” he said. “We are dedicated to proving that we can grow the same quality of grapes as Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino counties.”

“It drives us crazy when we hear people talking about visiting San Diego wineries and then talk about going to Temecula,” said Dave Wodehouse. He and his wife, Kathy, founded Witch Creek Winer y in 1993. Based in Carlsbad, the winer y has tasting rooms in Carlsbad and Julian. Temecula wineries “are not San Diego County,” he said. “We make a lot of great wines right here and have a lot of potential customers. People just need to learn about us.” Educating the public about the San Diego County

Voices from the Class of '13 Each year at this time we turn this space over to students who spoke at this month’s high school graduation ceremonies. Below are excerpts from speeches given at Rancho Bernardo, Poway and Del Norte high schools “Hopefully by now you’ve already thought about what you are doing in the future. If you choose a road that is safe, a road guaranteed to not lead to failures, you have already failed. Failure does not bring you down; fear of failure brings you down. As a wise man once said, we must find victory through failure, hope through despair. Get up after a fall. We don’t fail by falling; we fail by not getting up. Today is cruel, tomorrow is even more cruel, but the day after tomorrow is success; however, most people drop out on tomorrow night, so never give up today. “We are a generation that seeks, dreams, pursues, dares, and, most importantly, changes. We have talked about an excess of idealisms in school. That’s because we want someone to tell us what to do, when in reality, no one can. We each live our own life. Therefore our job is to dare to break the rules, to change — to change everyone around us, everything around us, every community around us. The world shall not change us. We shall change the world. “Steve Jobs teaches us, ‘Stay hungry, stay foolish.’ Never be afraid of failures.” Yuxuan Harry Qi RB High valedictorian “There is a sense of accomplishment with moving on to the next stage of life, but it’s still sad to leave the place we’ve come to love. “While this school will always feel like home, we will go out into the world and create new homes. “It takes more than one person to build a house; we will get lots of help from friends, family, coworkers, teachers, and other people that we will meet while our lives are under construction. “People will help us build, criticize our decisions, and suggest alternatives, but our homes will always be ours.

“We will decide what kind of homes they will be: whether they are neat or messy, extravagant or simple, spacious or cozy. There are lots of decisions to be made along the way and all of our homes will be unique. “It will take some work, but one day we will all have homes that we can be proud of." Lizzie Johnson Poway High senior class speaker “I stand here today to say that not only are we on the map, we are a force to be reckoned with. We have beyond college-ready graduates who will be attending Stanford, Princeton and Oxford among many other prestigious universities all across the globe. We have future-focused students who have completed internships with Northrop Grumman, Kaiser Permanente, and the San Diego Chamber of Commerce. We have students, living beyond themselves, dedicated to the betterment of our global community. I proudly stand here to say that the Class of 2013 is far from inadequate and pretty darn close to powerful. “And now as we look back, with classrooms filled with eager minds and halls jam-packed with hatchlings ready to carry on the legacy, we can take in our final breaths as Nighthawks, our final whiffs of the nest, and soar on confidently to the next chapter of our lives. We can do so because beyond the academics, Del Norte has so generously bestowed upon us a spirit of community — that wherever we go we don’t have to fear our inadequacies or our expectations or even the unknown because our home is in the community we define, “Frank Lloyd Wright, the master architect, was asked, ‘Of your many beautiful structures, which one is your favorite?’ Without missing a beat, he replied, ‘my next one.’ Needless to say, all of us have accomplished a great feat, but starting tomorrow the slate is clean.” Christopher Le Del Norte High School senior class speaker


Commentary doesn't add up Your guest columnist Jeffrey Meyer’s “look in the mirror” (June 20) exemplifies the Greens’ rant. He cites corporate greed as one reason that CO2 is destroying the reefs and marine life, bringing fires, floods, drought, and storms. Does he not know that plant life uses CO2 in the production of photosynthesis? Does he not know that photosynthesis sustains life on our planet? Without it, there would be no retired reporters such as himself. Jeffrey’s faulty logic becomes obvious in paragraph five, where he indicates that CO2 levels recently reached 400 ppm, but (curiously) the oceans did not rise 16 to 131 feet (supposedly like they did the last time). To the rest of us, this demonstrates that they are not related. That’s why the general public isn’t lined up behind you. Like your column, your cause doesn’t add up.


Avoid GMOs for now Further to Lars K. Staack’s June 20 letter, genetically modified foods include the mutation, insertion or deletion of genes in our foods. The immediate positives of GMOs is that engineered crops resist disease better than natural crops, and can provide much needed food to starving nations. Are GM foods safe? Monsanto, the leading maker of GMOs, says yes, of course. I’m not so sure. Recall the frequency that pharmaceutical drugs are taken off the market because of harmful, even deleterious, long-term effects on our health. Long-term studies have not yet been made on GM foods. Also, processed and refined foods can be classified as a kind of modified foods. We now know the long-term consequences of these foods on our health: an epidemic increase in cancer, diabetes, mental health issues, obesity, to name a few. Jeffery M. Smith, consumer advocate and author of three books on GMOs, has noted that over 20 farmers reported to him that thousands of their pigs and cows became sterile after eating certain GM crops. We eat pigs and cows. You are what you eat... and whatever it eats. I feel that we should avoid GM foods until we do

have enough evidence that these foods are wholly safe. We need further testing over longer periods of time. The European Union, Australia, New Zealand, China and India require GMO labeling; the U.S.A. does not because the American Medical Association opposes such labeling for fear that it can falsely alarm consumers.

Poway parade marches on After five amazing years, the time has come for me to step down from my Poway Days Parade leadership role. I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has participated in the parade these past four years. To all of our sponsors, entrants, and spectators; because of your support and participation, not only we were able to successfully keep our parade alive back in 2009, we’ve been able to improve and grow each year. There have been hundreds of volunteers who have willingly given of themselves each year to ensure there are bands, horses, floats, pet parades, Scouts, cars, schools and other marching (or riding) proudly down Poway Road each September. We don’t have the space to name them all here, but to each of you, our community is most grateful for your service! While it looked like the parade’s future was in doubt, thanks to the recent article, not only do we have a parade chair and host organization, but a new group of wonderful Powegians, who share a love for our community and our parade, have come together to ensure this much beloved tradition continues! I have had the pleasure of meeting with these volunteers and I am once again reminded why I love our community…when there is a need for service, Powegians gladly answer the call! I know the 49th annual Poway Days Parade will be the best ever! If you are interested in participating, in any way, please email the parade committee at

Is our most cherished freedom truly under threat?

his past week, many churches across the nation launched Fortnight for Freedom, a two-week period of prayer and action leading up to the 4th of July, to address the many current challenges to religious liberty in America. The various attempts to limit freedom of religion in the U.S. should cause everyone to be concerned because once we delegitimize participation of people of faith in the public debate the only question remaining will be “who is next?” The Obama administration, along with many other detractors of organized religion, has tried to marginalize religious liberty by referring to it merely as the freedom to worship. Our most cherished liberty right extends far beyond worship. It includes the right to live one’s life in accordance with their religious beliefs, albeit with certain obvious moral boundaries. For example, a person can’t claim it was OK to murder another person simply because their religious beliefs allowed it. Whenever this issue is raised, I’m always surprised at the number of people who either think the current assault on religious liberty is not actually happening or are totally unaware its scope. Consider the following examples, taken from a list of dozens. The Department of Health and Human Services mandate scheduled for implementation during the upcoming months includes some of the most outrageous assaults. It requires employers to fund prod-

Dick Lyles GET REAL ucts and services contrary to their morals. Scarier yet, it improperly defines which organizations are “religious enough” to warrant religious liberty. State and local governments are guilty of similar assaults. Several cities and the state of Illinois have driven faith-based charities out of the adoption and foster care service arena because they operated in accordance with their religious beliefs. New York City refuses to allow the Bronx Household of Faith and other churches from renting public schools on weekends for worship services, even though non-religious groups rent the same schools for many other uses. After years of excellent performance by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services (MRS) in administering contract services for victims of human trafficking, the federal government changed its contract specifications to require MRS to provide or refer for contraceptive and abortion services in violation of Catholic teaching. A New Jersey judge recently found that a Methodist ministry violated state law when the ministry

declined to allow two women to hold a “civil union” ceremony on its private property. Further, a civil rights complaint has been filed against the Catholic Church in Hawaii by a person requesting to use its chapel to hold a same-sex “marriage” ceremony. Regardless of our personal beliefs regarding abortion, contraception, same sex marriage and myriad other social issues, we should all be concerned that the concept of liberty — being able to live one’s beliefs — is being compromised and the notion of tolerance is being largely abandoned. Tolerance once meant “I’ll respect and accept your beliefs and expect you to do the same for me.” Today it means “if you don’t believe the way I do, I’ll force you to act in accordance with my beliefs, regardless of yours.” As we approach the Fourth of July we all need to take a deep breath and reflect on America’s founding principle of liberty. Think about the fate of countries that failed to cherish personal liberties, including the freedom of religion. Then think about the dismal existence of the citizens of those countries. Is that what you want for us? I don’t. Let’s use this Fourth of July to rededicate our commitment to preserving the liberty rights upon which our nation was founded.

We are all human and works in progress


t my worst I drove my car when I’d had too much to drink; I called my kids names; I had an affair. At my worst I let my ailing aunt’s phone call go to voicemail; I yelled at a customer service representative for a company policy she had nothing to do with. At my worst I drove without insurance; I tattled on my brothers; I brow beat an employee. At my worst I gossiped about friends; I stole a rabbit’s foot from 7-Eleven; I pretended I’d read a book when I hadn’t. At my worst I didn’t brush my kids’ teeth for a week; I played hooky from work; I yelled obscenities at my husband. At my worst I made my children late for school so I could stop at Starbucks for a coffee; I talked during a movie. At my worst I drove with bald tires; I didn’t send a sympathy card; I got in the “15 Items or Less” line when I had 20 items. At my worst I failed to pick up after my dog; I had an abortion; I went on vacation instead attending a dear friend’s funeral. At my worst, I jumped a long line at a freeway exit ramp; I stole money from my dad’s coat pockets. At my worst, I looked the other way when I saw a mother slap her child in the grocery store; I told a white lie for having missed a friend’s birthday party. When I meet my maker, I’m sure I’ll have some ‘splainin’ to do. Who knows, I might even be sent back for a “do over” or reincarnated as a tick? However, if she’s been paying attention, my maker will know that, at my best, I was loving, tolerant, understanding and kind. Marilyn Monroe once told an interviewer “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. If you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” The same applies to me. My life is full. Full of mistakes. Full of love. Full of gifts. Full of catastrophe, to paraphrase a term coined by the stress-reduction and mindfulness ex-

Amy Roost AU CONTRAIRE pert Jon Kabat-Zinn. Full catastrophe living does not mean disaster — it means living in acceptance of the whole of life, saying yes to the enormity, the full range, of our life experience. There are major crises in everyone’s life. And, yes, there is death and disaster. But there are also all the good deeds and offerings that, along the way, add up. There are fires and floods, open containers of alcohol in your child’s car and strained marriages. There are pregnancies that go horribly wrong and also children who won’t clean their room. Refrigerators that leak. Jobs that are menial and bills we can’t pay. There are lovers and there are lonely nights. There are crushed expectations. Melted eyeglasses. Traffic. Toothaches. At our best we respond well to these tests. At our worst, not so well. Those who know me well, and who know that at my best I have contributed value, would never condemn me — either to my face or in the online comments section of a local newspaper — based solely on what I did at my worst, nor would I them. They would accept that none of us is perfect, we have all been at our worst and we have all been at our best. As such we are all human and works in progress. Hopefully, we learn from the worst growing in strength and wisdom. Hopefully, we can stop ourselves before condemning another’s worst and instead dance together through this full catastrophe — dancing each other, as Leonard Cohen would say, “to the end of love.” Roost is a former Poway resident who now lives in Solana Beach.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE A1 vote on whether they wanted a mascot or not, and if so, what it will be. “The name needed to reflect the school’s mission,” she said, adding the school’s mission will be design, learning and creativity for their students. “Design” comes from design thinking, a style of thinking and learning that combines empathy, creativity and rationality to solve problems. Both the staff and students at Design 39 Campus will learn design thinking in their education. Wrisley said 39 was left in because people have been referring to the school as School 39 for years. After some debate, the board voted yes on naming School 39 “Design 39 Campus.” Board member Kimberley Beatty was the only member to vote no, after her motion to delay the vote wasn’t passed. Beatty said she was worried the name would stand out too much, and that it didn’t signify equity and sameness. Design 39 Campus is scheduled to open in August 2014.

Katoh signs with Yankees, meets idol, hits homers BY ROBERT FULTON Let’s take a look at how the month of June went for Rancho Bernardo High School baseball standout Gosuke Katoh. The 18-year-old graduated from high school, got drafted by the New York Yankees, signed a contract in the high six figures, hit a home run in his first game as a professional baseball player, took batting practice with the big league club and met his idol. Not bad. Last week, Gosuke signed with the New York Yankees for a repor ted bonus of $845,700 and star ted playing for the team’s Gulf Coast League rookie ball affiliate. When the New York Yankees selected Gosuke in the second round, pick 66 overall, of the Major League Baseball Draft, the RBHS star did not expect to be picked that high. The teenager watched the June 6 draft on television with his family at home. “I wasn’t really expecting to go that high,” Gosuke said. “I was just kind of watching the draft as an outsider, just as a spectator. I didn’t really want to have friends over because if I didn’t get drafted, there would have been quite a disappointment. It was just my family. It was a special moment.” After signing his contract, the second baseman has gotten off to a fast start, hitting home runs in his first two games of rookie ball. New York’s Gulf Coast League affiliate is based in Tampa Bay, Florida. Gosuke is one of many young men tr ying to live the dream of playing big league baseball, but the facility is also where

Gosuke has seen or met the likes of Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson. “Off the field they’re just normal human beings that just love baseball,” Gosuke said by phone from his Tampa hotel. “They just love to have fun, they joke around.” Gosuke was born to Japanese parents in Mountain View, California, and spent his early years in Japan before moving to Rancho Bernardo in 2000. Like many with Japanese roots, superstar Ichiro Suzuki is his favorite player. Shor tly after the team drafted him, Gosuke quickly learned of the perks of being in the pinstripe circle. During a recent Yankee series to face the Angels in Anaheim, the team invited Gosuke and his father to attend a game. Gosuke took batting practice, visited the locker room and fielded grounders. He also got to meet Suzuki, New York’s

rightfielder. “He just told me to keep working hard because he knows how hard the minor league experience is, and to just keep the goal in mind at all times no matter how bad you’re doing on the field or the results,” Gosuke said. “He said that one day he wants to play with me at Yankee stadium.” In addition to chatting with Suzuki, Gosuke also met

other Yankees such as Mark Teixeira and legend Mariano Rivera. Gosuke joked with Yankee all-star second baseman Robinson Cano. “I just told him that I was coming for his spot,” Gosuke said. Gosuke will have to work hard in the minors to make regular appearances in major league stadiums, but his experience in Anaheim was priceless.

or approximately 150 lacrosse teams and 3,000 players, the fourth annual Pacific Lacrosse Festival, which will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday at three Poway Unified School District campuses, will be an opportunity to compete against teams they don’t usually face. For the local community, the estimated 7,000 lacrosse fans expected to attend will benefit the nearby economy. “The event has been very good for the community,” said founder Dennis Yeatman. Yeatman, who played lacrosse at the U.S. Naval Academy and also coached Navy’s plebe (freshman) team, has five children who all played lacrosse at Rancho Bernardo High School and subsequently all played college lacrosse. This is Yeatman’s third year partnering with Poway High School coach Paul Sanit to organize the Pacific Lacrosse Festival. “It is a chance for players from all over the western United States to come together,” Yeatman said. The festival is also a fundraiser for local high school programs. “We’re kind of playing lacrosse for a cause as well,” Yeatman said. Games will be played at Rancho Bernardo High School, Del Norte High School, and Oak Valley Middle School. The tournament’s 12 divisions will include four high school divisions: boys high school, boys high school elite, girls high school, and girls high school elite. Yeatman expects approximately 35 high school teams to participate in the tournament, and he also expects that the separation of elite and other programs will make matches more competitive. See FESTIVAL, Page B3

Three other locals begin their quests Gosuke Katoh was not the only baseball player with local ties to sign a professional contract recently: • Trevor Williams, a 2010 RBHS grad and Arizona State star, was selected by the Miami Marlins with the 44th overall pick. He recently signed for $1.267 million. • The Chicago White Sox drafted James Dykstra, a 2010 RBHS grad and Cal State San Marcos standout, in the sixth round. He has signed and reported to the Great Falls (Montana) Voyagers. • Austin Wynns, a 2009 graduate of Poway High and catcher at Fresno State, was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 10th round. He recently signed and reported to the Abderdeen IronBirds.

ON TO STATE - The Poway 14U girl’s softball team placed third at this past weekend’s ASA North San Diego District tournament at Rancho Buena Vista High School. As a result, the 14U Poway Diamonds team earned a ticket to the 14U SoCal ASA State Tournament in Lancaster from July 5-7.

Thomas planned a weekend trip with friends while his wife visited her family in Oklahoma. Just as he was about to leave, however, Thomas received a call from the couple’s Angels social worker. A 17-month-old girl needed a home. “It was the first time we kind of hesitated because my wife was out of town and I was on my way out of town,” Thomas said. After an hour-long phone conversation, the couple decided to provide a home to the girl. A half-hour later, Aubrey arrived in a dirty onesie with a San Diego County social worker. “It was just me and this little girl,” Thomas said. “I called my friends and said, ‘I won’t be playing any golf this weekend. On your way out of town, if you could drop off some size three diapers and a gallon of whole milk, that would be great because my weekend just changed.’” Aubrey had been raised in a violent home. She had a bloated stomach due to malnutrition and had never slept in a crib. “She was a very, very scared and angry little girl,” he said. When his wife returned that Monday, the couple met with Aubrey’s biological parents and were surprised to discover the mother was eight-and-a-half months pregnant. When the baby boy was born three weeks later, Thomas and his wife were asked to take him home from the hospital. Today, the Thomas family lives in Bonita. Aubrey is almost 5 years old and is starting kindergarten next month. “We have our forever family and they are absolutely amazing,” Thomas said. “We just feel forever blessed to be part of the Angels’ family. It’s been a miracle for us.” There are more than 3,500 children in San Diego County’s foster care system. Thomas encourages potential foster parents to contact Angels Foster Family Network to learn how they can provide love and care to a child who needs a home. “Keep an open mind and an open heart,” Thomas said. “It’s important that you understand what your role is. You need to let go and know that you can’t control it. Your job is just to love the baby.” For more information about Angels Foster Family Network, visit

“It’s not necessarily a tournament,” Yeatman said. “The intent is to make it festive and fun.” He noted that the brackets seek to avoid placing local opponents against each other. The festival also lacks most valuable player awards. “We give awards for representing the game,” Yeatman said. The tournament began three years ago with approximately 60 teams and expanded to 90

teams in 2011 and 130 teams in 2012. “We’re growing,” Yeatman said. This year’s teams will travel from nine different states. “It really helps to stimulate the economy in our area,” Yeatman said. “We want to make sure that they have a nice time not just playing lacrosse,” Yeatman said. “The whole community comes together to provide that.”

Academia-industry partnerships turbocharging cancer medicine Scott M. Lippman M.D. W

hat happens when you put the nation’s second largest cluster of life science companies in the same town with one of the world’s most amazing groups of academic biomedical research institutions? You accelerate a certain chemistry, the combinatorial kind that produces a phenomenon known as the academiaindustry partnership, or AIP. This supercharged chemistry happens in San Diego, where AIPs fuel the development of novel cancer medicines that help patients get better. More so than almost any other place on Earth, researchers and entrepreneurs from industry and academia rub shoulders in San Diego. They commingle in events that foster AIPs, like the annual UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center Industry/ Academia Translational Oncology Symposium. They get together through two nonprofit organizations, BIOCOM and CONNECT, that strongly facilitate AIPs via services to the region’s numerous biotechnology companies. This proximity matters. It’s hard to beat creative interactions stemming from spontaneous and short-notice encounters and meetings, from seeing raw data and experiments in person in the lab, and from a host of other immediate advantages that Skype, email and distance can’t offer. AIPs work, and work fast. For example, in 2008 Catriona Jamieson, M.D., Ph.D., and academic colleagues in La Jolla reported that a JAK2 mutation in cancer stem cells drives the hematologic cancer myelofibrosis (MF). MF is debilitating and life-threatening, with abnormal blood-cell production and scarring in the bone marrow. Jamieson linked up with another academic scientist, Da-


vid Cheresh, Ph.D., who had founded the local company TargeGen, which developed a JAK2-inhibiting drug. They formed an AIP. Only eight months after the JAK2 stem cell discovery in 2008, this AIP began a clinical trial of the JAK2 inhibitor here and elsewhere. The early phase trial was quite successful, helping patients right away and a harbinger of things to come in this emerging era of targeted therapy. It caught the eye of the large pharmaceutical company SanofiAventis, which acquired TargeGen in June 2010. More trials were then launched at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center and elsewhere, and last month, Sanofi announced that the drug’s large, multi-national Food and Drug Administration-registration trial, called JAKARTA, had exceeded its expected benefit. If all goes well, it’s expected the FDA will approve the drug for cancer treatments in 2014. This case of AIP-turbocharged drug development went from 0 to 60 in eight months and from 0 to the finish line in just five years. That’s lightning fast compared with typical cancer drug development, which often takes from 10 to 15 or more years to get an idea to market. Drug development moves fast in La Jolla because it’s easier to generate the AIPs that propel good science and medicine. Inspired by success stories like JAK2 targeting in MF, researchers from academia and industry are partnering to build and occupy the Center for Novel Therapeutics (CNT; originally an-


FAA approved training. Job placement assistance. CALL AIM


nounced as the Center for Innovative Therapeutics). The CNT will incubate scientific discovery and then foster AIPs that speed development of clinical testing and therapeutics. The 110,000-square-foot CNT will rise in the UCSD Science Research Park, just east of the Moores Cancer Center. Teams of potential CNT developers, architects, contractors and consultants attended a mandatory Qualifiers Meeting in May. By June 10, the teams must submit their qualifications to develop the CNT, which is slated to open in July 2016. The CNT will house academia and industry tenants in wet and dry laboratories, including space for bioengineering and medicinal chemistry. It will house people who know how to develop clinical protocols, as well as core facilities to support joint research. Several large labs from Moores will become CNT tenants. The scientific leaders of these labs have all been involved in AIPs. They believe in the CNT’s ability to facilitate and hasten AIPs that will help

them get their discoveries into therapeutics that help patients as quickly as possible. It all comes together nicely: All of the pieces needed to create and develop lifesaving cancer therapeutics and technology under one roof in the CNT. In turn, the CNT is near clinical doctors and researchers at the NCIdesignated comprehensive Moores Cancer Center (just across the street) and at the UCSD Thornton Hospital and the Hospital for Cancer Care (walking distance) within the Jacobs Medical Center (scheduled to open in 2016). Nearby as well are Moores’ large bank of clinical tissue specimens and the UCSD Center for Advanced Laboratory Medicine. Whether within the same building (CNT), campus (UCSD), community (La Jolla) or city (San Diego), close proximity spurs invention, inspiration and innovation, in this case in the form of AIPs. These partnerships are at the heart of accelerated drug development that makes life better in our community, the nation and the world. Lippman is director of UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center. His column on medical advances from the front lines of cancer research and care appears on he fourth Thursday of each month. You can reach Dr. Lippman at

How to spot and prevent senior financial fraud

Dear Savvy Senior, Can you offer some tips on protecting seniors from financial scams? My neighbor’s elderly mother was recently swindled out of $10,000 and I want to make sure my own mother is protected. — Troubled Daughter Dear Troubled: Financial scams that target the elderly continue to be a big problem in the U.S. In fact, it’s estimated that some 5 million Americans over age 60 are scammed out of roughly $3 billion every year. Here are some tips that can help you spot a scam, and what you can do to protect your mom. Scam watching Spotting a scam or a con artist is not always easy to do. They range from shady financial advisers to slick-talking telemarketers to professional caregivers and relatives who steal from the very people they’re supposed to be looking after. The most common scams targeting seniors today come in the form of free-lunch seminars selling dubious financial products, tricky/ high-pressure telemarketing calls, and endless junk mail peddling free vacation packages, sweepstakes,

Jim Miller THE SAVVY SENIOR phony charity fundraisers and more. And, of course, there’s the ongoing problem of identity theft, Medicare fraud, door-todoor scams, credit card theft, and Internet and email scams. The best way to spot a scam is to help your mom manage her finances, or at least monitor her accounts. Reviewing her financial statements each month can alert you to questionable checks, credit card charges or large withdrawals. If, however, she doesn’t want you looking at her financial records, there are other clues. For example: Is she getting a lot of junk mail for contests, free trips, and sweepstakes? Is she receiving calls from strangers offering awards or moneymaking deals? Also notice if her spending habits have changed, if she has complained about being short of money lately, or has suddenly become secretive or defen-

sive about her finances. All these may be signs of trouble. Protect your parent The most effective way to help protect your mom is to alert her to the different kind of scams out there. The easiest way to do this is by visiting the Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force website ( – click on “Protect Yourself”), where you can get a rundown on the different types of scams making the rounds these days. The Better Business Bureau Scam Stopper site at is another good resource. If your mom doesn’t have access to a computer, print out the materials yourself and use them to start a conversation. It’s also a good idea to keep close tabs on your mom’s social circle. Has she acquired any questionable new friends lately, or is she seeing anyone who’s giving her advice, financial or otherwise? Some other tips to protect her include reminding her to never give out her Social Security number or financial information unless she initiated the contact and knows the institution. Also, see if your mom would be willing to let you sort her mail before she opens it so you can weed

out the junk. To reduce the junk mail and/or email she gets, use the Direct Marketing Association consumer opt-out service at And to stop credit card and insurance offers, use the Consumer Credit Reporting Industry opt-out service at optoutprescreen. com or call 888-567-8688 – they will ask for your mom’s Social Security number and date of birth. Also, register your mom’s home and cell phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry (, 888-382-1222) to reduce telemarketers. And help her get a free copy of her credit report at to make sure she isn’t a victim of identity theft. Report it If you suspect your mom has gotten scammed report it to your state securities regulator’s office (see for contact information), or your state’s Adult Protective Services agency (call 800-677-1116 for contact information) that investigates reports of elderly financial abuse. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC “Today” show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Why Coca Cola still markets...

When can you stop marketing? — Ronald Graham, Rancho Bernardo In a word: Never! Lest you think that statement to be selfserving, consider Coca Cola — arguably the best known brand in the entire world. This purveyor of sugar water generates $35 billion in annual sales, but spends $10 billion of their hard-earned revenue on marketing. Why don’t they just pocket the money and ride on their reputation? After all, they’ve got 127 years of visibility, right? Basically, because if Coke banked that $10 billion each year — an obvious temptation — they’d invite those fun folks at Pepsi to market more and take over as No. 1. Coke’s lost profits would dwarf any money they’d save. Watching their business shrivel, Coke would try battling back to the top. Their marketing hiatus would cost them significantly more than $10 billion to recapture customers, many of whom would now have tried Pepsi and might be lost forever. Not too smart, huh? Coke’s not alone with this strategy, either. Procter and Gamble allots a full 12 percent of their $85 billion in annual sales to marketing. They’re leaders in many of their product categories. And it’s why American cereal manufacturers spend $600 million each year trying to persuade you to buy sugar-coated “cardboard.” The U.S. Federal Trade Commission finds as a group, these guys spend twice as much on their marketing efforts as they do on their in-

Rob Weinberg ASK MR. MARKETING gredients. Really! Of course, your question isn’t at all unusual. At almost every seminar I lead there’s someone asking if he has to market, how much to market, and which ways make the most sense. Successful businesses understand marketing is an investment, not an expense. Many textbooks answer the “How much?” question by suggesting 2 percent of sales. Over 33 years as a communications professional I’ve learned 6-9 percent is more like it. And whatever you have budgeted for marketing, it still won’t be enough for everything you want to do. Still don’t think you need to market? That’s fine, provided you recognize your cost of lost opportunity from not marketing. My take: Not marketing yourself consistently and aggressively will cost your business sales, momentum, and market share. Only a carefully planned, adequately funded, intelligently executed plan can prevent this. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing. Let Mr. Marketing show you how to execute a well-constructed marketing plan. Reach him at

Scripps Ranch man pleads innocent SDG&E: Loss of San Onofre plant won’t impact summer power supply to contributing to child’s death SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A Scripps Ranch man whose pistol discharged and mortally wounded a neighbor boy as the fourth-grader played with the weapon pleaded not guilty today to charges of involuntary manslaughter, child endangerment and negligent storage of a firearm. Todd Conrad Francis — who remains free on $100,000 bail — faces seven years and eight months behind bars if convicted. San Diego police said 10-year-old Eric Klyaz was handling a 9-mm gun in a garage at a condominium complex in the 10900 block of Ivy Hill Drive on June 4, along with Francis’ 9-year-old daughter, when it went off. The Dingeman Elementary School student suffered a bullet wound to the chest and died at Rady Children’s Hospital a short time later, homicide Lt. Jorge Duran said. The other child, whose older brother was babysitting her at the time of the shooting, was unharmed. Francis, 55, turned himself in last

Tuesday and was freed after posting bail. Formal charges were filed last week. “It’s just a very tragic incident,” said defense attorney Danna Cotman, who disputed the prosecution’s contention that the children found the gun loaded. She said the gun and ammunition were stored separately, but was at a loss to explain how the two came together. Judge David Szumowski denied a prosecution request that Francis have no contact with his 9-year-old daughter, instead ordering that the defendant not be alone when visiting the child. Deputy District Attorney Teresa Santana said the girl is living with her mother. “The judge basically felt that the child had been traumatized enough,” Santana told reporters. “He didn’t want to, in addition, have him (the defendant) not be available to have access to his daughter.” A readiness conference was set for Aug. 19 and a preliminar y hearing for Sept. 23.

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego Gas & Electric can meet its customers’ electricity needs this summer despite the absence of power from the permanently shuttered San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, although users may be asked to conserve energy, utility officials said. Souther n Califor nia Edison’s parent company announced Friday that the plant’s two reactor units would be shut down for good. Both units at the plant near Camp Pendleton were taken out of service in January 2012, one for planned maintenance and the other after a small leak of radioactive steam, later attributed to premature wearing of steam pressure tubes, was discovered. Edison is the majority owner of the facility, but SDG&E owns about 20 percent and the city of Riverside a much smaller percentage. Michael R. Niggli, SDG&E’s president and chief operating officer, said the utility had been planning for a “no SONGS summer” for some time.

“Knowing that the plant was out last year, we were not anticipating it would be in service this year — although we were hopeful,” Niggli said. The San Diego area lost about 440 megawatts from the SONGS outage, but many energy sources had come and gone over the past decade, he said. SDG&E, SCE and the California Independent System Operator had plans in place to meet customers’ needs safely and reliably, despite another summer without the SONGS facility, according to SDG&E’s chairman and CEO, Jessie J. Knight Jr. However, there could be some challenges. “This summer SDG&E is reminding customers that while adequate electricity supplies are lined up to meet customers’ energy needs, conservation and demand response will still be critical during this time of extreme hot weather, or a unplanned power plant outage or transmission line emergency if it does occur,” Knight said.

Report suggests Keeping kids active once the school year ends plan to finance San Diego infrastructure repairs SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A report to the San Diego City Council’s Infrastructure Committee on Monday recommended the development of plan to pay for deferred infrastructure work. Putting off maintenance and renovation projects because of budget restraints in recent years has left the city with backlog of projects with a low-ball price tag around $900 million, according to Erin Noel of the city’s Independent Budget Analyst’s office. “Infrastructure issues impact the public health, safety and quality of life for San Diego communities, as well as the tourism industry, which is an important part of the city’s economy,” Noel said. “Addressing infrastructure issues is clearly one of the highest priorities for the city.” The committee agreed to for ward the issue to the full City Council for consideration. With the economy improving, Noel said city officials have begun to address the problem, but a citywide, multi-year capital improvement plan is needed. “The backbone of the city has been neglected for too long and now we have a hefty tab to pay,” said City Councilman Mark Kersey of Rancho Bernardo, who heads the committee. In January, the committee passed a tentative work plan calling for a thorough infrastructure needs assessment.

BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK Ten Poway Unified elementary teachers are among the 23 concluding their careers in education. Pomerado Newspapers invited teachers with the district for 25 or more years to share reflections on their careers. Three at the elementary level chose to participate. Those listed notified PUSD of their retirement plans by May 28. Middle school retiring teachers were profiled on June 13 and high school teachers were profiled on June 20. • Cyndy Dorr is retiring after teaching for 34 years in Poway Unified, most recently at Chaparral, where she was among its founding faculty and taught third grade for eight years. She transferred to Canyon View when it opened to teach fourth grade for 10 years, then returned to Chaparral 16 years ago to teach fourth and recently, third grade. Dorr was the student council adviser at both schools for 15-plus years and developed the Student Guides for Chaparral program. She was named Chaparral’s Teacher of the Year for 2011-12. Dorr earned her Bachelor of Science in liberal studies from San Diego State University and Master of Arts in educational psychology from United States International University. “My father was a teacher and longtime principal who was admired and respected by his staff and c o m m u n i t y, ” Dorr said. “Both my sister and I were inspired to be teachers by my father’s legacy.” Dorr said her CINDY DORR career benefited and inspired her as much as she hopes she benefited and inspired her students. As for a special memory, she said, “My present colleagues, students and parents have made this a very special year. What a wonderful way to exit my career.” In retirement, Dorr said, “My husband and I hope to spend our time boating, camping, hiking, motorcycling, traveling and spending time with our three children. There won’t be enough time to do all of the things we have planned.” • Deborah R. Tait is retiring after 26 years in the district, most recently teaching third grade at Garden Road where over 19 years she also taught fourth and fifth grade. Before that she was a fourth-grade teacher

It’s Time to

at Pomerado for seven years. During Tait’s career she received the Hats Off to Teachers award for San Diego County in 1999, was named Pomerado and Garden Road’s Teacher of the Year, received a PUSD Earth Watch Grant in 1992, a Kycero Award in 1993 plus a trip to Japan and the Prime Poway Women Award in 2013. Tait earned a Bachelor of Arts and teaching credential in liberal studies with an DEBORAH R. TAIT emphasis in education from San Diego State University and a master’s in education from United States International University. “I wanted to be a teacher because I enjoyed working with students with disabilities,” Tait said. “I started working in a camp program and (went) on to Santee School District as an aide in a special education class. Soon the teaching credential followed. “I spent many summers as a child setting up my classroom in the garage,” she added. “I love my job as a teacher in Poway and have had many great experiences working at the district and site level with other teachers developing curriculum for students,” she said. Tait said the profession changed due to the addition of technology in class presentations and the way teachers access students. “I miss the hands-on experiences we used to offer students within our curriculum,” she added. She said her favorite memory was creating a life lab program at Pomerado that included building 20 garden boxes for teachers to use with their classes. “During retirement my husband and I will travel 8,000 miles around the United States this summer,” Tait said. “In October we will go through the Panama Canal ... (then return) to live in Poway.”

Tebbetts earned a bachelor’s in sociology and credential certification from California State University Fullerton plus a master’s in instructional leadership from National University. “From the time I was very young I always wanted to be a mother and a teacher,” Tebbetts said. “I was fortunate to be able to fulfill that wish. I was a ‘stay at home mom’ while my children were young. When the last child went to school I decided it was time to begin my second profession.” She said teaching exceeded her expectations, mentioning the district’s use of literacy teachers at elementary schools during the 1990s. “We often met at the Rancho Bernardo Inn after school and were taught many new instructional strategies that would more effectively teach 5- and 6-year-olds literacy,” she said. “I learned so much and am grateful to them.” Tebbetts said the expectations for young children have increased significantly since she began teaching, with more challenging standards in place. “With effective instruction some children are developmentally ready to meet these expectations and some very bright young children are not,” she said. As for a special memory, Tebbetts mentioned a boy with Asperger’s syndrome who taught her to see children as diverse and made her a better teacher because she learned “an effective teacher observes and listens more than he/she talks.” Tebbetts said she plans no longer awaken at 5 a.m., adding she and her husband plan to spend more time with their three children and six grandchildren, she wants to volunteer in her granddaughter’s first-grade classroom and is interested in hiking, spending more time with friends, traveling and gardening at their Rancho Penasquitos home.

Also retiring are: • Melanie Farinholt, who was with the district for 37 years, most recently assigned to teach fourth and fifth grade at Tierra Bonita. • Donna Fox, who was with the district for 20 years, most recently teaching first grade at Morning Creek. • Eileen Johnson, who was with the district for 15 years, most recently teaching kindergarten at Shoal Creek. • Patricia Mar vin, who was with the district for 30 years, most recently teaching first grade at Sundance. • Charlotte Mishler, who was • Eileen Tebbetts concludes her with the district for 21 years, most 25-year career with PUSD by teachrecently teaching second grade at EILEEN TEBBETTS ing kindergarten at Rolling Hills for 23 Morning Creek. years.
