Providing The Ranch with Three Decades of Quality Journalism

JANUARY 20, 2011

RSF Association to seek community input on Internet, cell phone issues through surveys By Karen Billing RSF Association resident John Venekamp voiced his frustration to the RSF Association board Jan. 6 over the lack of cell phone and Internet service in the Covenant. Despite owning a home in one of the country’s richest zip codes, he said he still has trouble getting a cell phone connection and suffers from Internet service that is spotty at best. While trying to talk to his children online recently, he said he was knocked off the Internet 12 times. “(The system) is antiquated,” Venekamp said. “We need to address this as a community, it affects our quality of life.” The Association heard the complaints loud and clear. “A lot of us would like to have high-speed Internet,” said board president Tom Lang. “It’s a very pressing problem right now.” A long-range planning survey should be mailed out to members by the end of the month and while it seeks to weigh residents’ views on a number of issues, the question of broadband is addressed in the survey. A second survey on undergrounding utilities, which includes the capability for fiber optic cables for broadband Internet, is expected to be mailed in the coming months. Association Manager Pete Smith said that, through the surveys, the Association will be trying to find out how many people are having Internet and cell phone access problems, and what role, if any, the community wants the Association to play in obtaining better service. He also noted that it is possible to get high-speed Internet access in the Covenant, but it is very expensive. Covenant Administrator Ivan Holler said the Association has actually worked very hard on the problem for several years. The geography of the area and distance between homes is part of the problem. “Since the DAS (Distributed Antenna System) was installed in the Ranch, wireless service has improved a great deal.” Holler said. “Like every place, the prevalence of data being transferred takes up a large chunk of the network and sometimes makes it harder for the network to keep pace with the user demand. That is beyond our control.” With the factors the Association could control, they have done their best, Holler said. They paired with ExteNet to bring the DAS to the Covenant, a long process that was finally implemented in 2008. The DAS was designed to provide service on roadways, which Holler admits doesn’t always help people when they are in their home struggling to get online or make a call. See SURVEYS, page 22

Author issues ‘wireless wakeup call’ in Rancho Santa Fe By Karen Billing Staff Writer Kerry Crofton is a big advocate for wired over wireless, corded over cordless. She uses long corded phones in her home, her computer is linked to the Internet by cable and she uses her cell phone so sparingly that her monthly bill is miniscule. Crofton, the author of the book “Wireless Radiation Rescue,” recently visited a private Rancho Santa Fe home to speak on the adverse affects of electro-magnetic radiation in our increasingly wireless world. Crofton, a health educator, set out on her mission to send a “Wireless wake-up call” about six years ago. “I’m deeply committed to this issue,” Crofton said. “ I’m deeply concerned for my family and for your family…We can’t fix the global situation. The government and the industry are not as yet receptive so it calls on us to take the lead, take care and safeguard our families from electro-pollution.” She acknowledged that there is a lot of controversy and debate surrounding the issue of wireless radiation as the science and evidence is still coming in. The 2010 Interphone study showed that 30 minutes of exposure a day over a 10-year period would equal a “heavy user” and increase the risk

of brain cancer by 40 percent. Another study cited in her book, showed that 30 minutes a day over 10 years could increase brain cancer risk by 140 percent. The same study predicted that the risk increased five-fold if a person begins using a cell phone before the age of 20. “Maybe not all the evidence is in but at least enough evidence is in to take caution,” said Crofton. On the cover of Crofton’s book is a child on a cell phone, with red wireless waves emanating from the phone. Crofton said that represents the intense sphere of radiation that comes off the antenna and can penetrate into the skull, particularly the eye tissue and brain. Symptoms of electro-magnetic radiation include sleep deprivation, cognitive impairment, tingling in hands, dizziness, ear ringing, vertigo, increased agitation and headaches. Evidence of harm includes DNA damage and disruption of DNA repair, suppression of the immune system and disruption of normal neurological functions. She compared electromagnetic radiation to rapid aging syndrome. “If we only knew, each phone call, what it’s really costing us,” Crofton said. Crofton worries most for children, who are more susceptible to the damage.


Author Kerry Crofton visited Rancho Santa Fe to discuss the dangers of ‘wireless.’ A group called Doctors for Safer Schools has formed to fight having wi-fi in schools due to concerns about children’s vulnerability to wireless radiation. She’d like to see schools use hardwire Internet connections or fiber optics if they can afford it. Warnings are out there— new smart phone instructions come with guidelines that phones should be held .9 inches from the head or it might exceed govern-

ment levels. Even signs on cell phone towers in Rancho Santa Fe read, “Emissions radiating beyond this point may exceed federal guidelines.” Crofton said the question we need to be asking is if federal guidelines are up to date. The U.S. guidelines were last updated in 1997 and she fears with the advancements made in technology since then that the standards are out of date and inaccurate. Additionally, she said the federal guidelines are based on a 200pound male, not taking into account the effect on children. Only short-term exposure and thermal effects were monitored. Cell phones are not the only culprits of wireless radiation—it’s anything that transmits data. Other sources include airport scanners, baby monitors, microwaves, diagnostic x-rays, plasma TVs, laptops—“the last place you want to place a laptop is in your lap.” She also warns of the effects of fluorescent bulbs. “Use incandescent light bulbs and look for other ways to reduce your energy consumption,” Crofton said. Cordless digital phones can also pose a danger, Crofton said, noting the new 6.0 cordless phones have a very high level of radiation, as the base is radiating

the entire time, not just when a call is coming in. She suggests a corded phone or using older cordless phones that are only 900 megahertz and not digital. There are some precautionary steps people can take and still remain connected. Crofton offers some in her book: • Choose a low SAR (specific absorption rate)-level phone. • Keep cell phones powered off as much as possible. • Hold phone away from your body and use the speakerphone option. • Put phones in airplane mode so they’re not sending or receiving data. • Create a safe sleep sanctuary; don’t keep wireless technology near your bed. Don’t use a cell phone as a bedside alarm clock without disabling the wireless mode. • Use Ethernet cables instead of wi-fi and make sure to disconnect a computer’s airport or Bluetooth functions. Use a wired router. • “Texting is better than talking but it’s still not safe, the only safe use is a corded land line,” Crofton said.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Author likens writing short stories to being a ‘cat burglar’ Editor’s Note: Short-story writer and best-selling novelist Amy Bloom was the guest speaker at the Jan. 10 luncheon of the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society held at The Grand Del Mar. The six-event luncheon series is sponsored by Northern Trust, the RSF Community Center and this newspaper. Nonfiction writer Daniel Okrent, who was the first public editor of The New York Times, will address the next Feb. 3 luncheon. His latest book is: “Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition.” By Arthur Lightbourn Contributor Amy Bloom’s latest book, “Where the God of Love Hangs Out,” is a collection of short stories. Well, not exactly. More like, two quartets of character-connected stories forming two novellas, plus four free-standing stories connected only by the author’s determination to “entice, seduce, enter and alter” her readers as she has been doing for the past 17 years. Bloom is the author of two previous books of short stories, “Come to Me” (1993) and “A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You” (2000); two novels, “Love Invents Us” (1997) and “Away” (2007); and one nonfiction psychology book titled “Normal: Transsexual CEOs, Cross-dressing Cops and Hermaphrodites with Attitude” (2002). She has been nominated for the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. She compares the job of writing short stories, her

favorite medium, to that of being a cat burglar — “in and out in a relatively short time….to accomplish something shocking — and lasting — without throwing around the furniture.” We interviewed her in the library of The Grand Del Mar Hotel and Resort on Jan. 10 prior to her luncheon talk to the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society. Bloom, 57, has a quick wit but when it comes to what she considers the “serious” business of writing, admits to being slow and meticulous. Her stories, she says, go through some 30 rewrites before she is satisfied. “It’s more like chiseling stone than anything else.” Her first book of 12 short stories, “Come to Me,” took six years to write and was published when she was 40, a fulltime working mother and psychotherapist who wrote after 10 p.m. when her three children were in bed. Bloom was born in New York City. Her grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Russia. “I have to say I have a real soft spot for Jewish vaudeville,” she said, “because of my family’s background. My parents were first generation American and my aunt and uncle sort of made their careers in the Yiddish opera.” As a result, in her fiction, she can’t resist dropping in a few Jewish jokes now and then, like in the closing lines of her story, “Fort Useless and Fort Ridiculous,” where, at a home memorial service, the deceased is remembered with the joke about the Jewish


Amy Bloom with her latest book, ‘Where the God of Love Hangs Out.’ grandmother who says to God when he returns her little grandson to her safely after the child had been swept off the beach by a giant wave, “Excuse me? He had a hat.” Both of Bloom’s parents were professional writers: her father was a freelance journalist and author of several books, her mother, a gossip columnist. As a child, Bloom was an avid reader, first, of comic books at the barber shop where her father hung out, then, of anything she could get her hands on at the local public library where her parents deposited her on Saturdays; but for many years she resisted becoming a writer because, she said, she thought it was “too hard.” Her father later told her it was in her genes.

She earned a B.A. in political science and theater, magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, from Wesleyan University, performed with a New York repertory theater, and later earned an M.S.W. (master’s of social work) from Smith College and opened a private psychotherapy practice in Connecticut where she still lives with her architect husband. Even though she makes her living as a writer, she also continues to teach. For a decade, she was a lecturer in creative writing (2000-2010) at Yale University, where she taught “Advanced Fiction Writing” and “Writing for Children,” and is currently a teacher and writer in residence at Wesleyan University “because I’m a worrier and it’s nice to have a back-up.” Of her writing, she says, “I’m not selling anything. There’s not a lesson I wish them [her readers] to take home, but I think it’s true that one writes as one is, so people can draw their own conclusions.” “I find people interesting,” she said. “I think people do sometime surprise us, not as often as we might like, but they do. People’s feelings are often quite different than their actions, and what people think they will do, is not in fact what they do. All those gaps, like the gap between the sidewalk and the street, that gap is the most interesting to me.” In her first quartet of stories about Claire, a middle-age academic, and her best friend on the faculty, William, an

overweight, intellectually stimulating Englishman, each married to other people, the gap begins with a 2 a.m. touch as they were watching CNN together while their spouses were asleep in other rooms. That initial story of the Clair-William quartet, “Your Borders, Your Rivers, Your Tiny Villages,” begins with the words “At two o’clock in the morning, no one is to blame.” It goes on to explore a surprising series of consequences. The character of Claire, Bloom said, isn’t based on any one person she met or even treated in her practice as a psychotherapist, “but I know lots of people who are not unlike Claire. She’s smart. She’s a little prickly and she thought she knew herself and she didn’t, which, to me, is always one of the more interesting adult situations.” The second quartet tells of an even more scandalizing twosome named Julia, a white music critic and recent widow of a famous black jazz musician, and Lionel, her 19-yearold stepson, who, in their mutual grief, give into a night of love that haunts them both for years, with Julia turning to relationships with another woman and eventually with a gay man. Bloom’s views on sexuality in America? “I think at this stage in America it’s really a civil rights conversation. It’s not really about sex. The history of America, I’m happy to say, is one in which, once we grant people civil rights, we don’t roll them back. The real issue

in America is: Who is a person? Who is a citizen? Who is a human being? “My grandchildren will look back on the period when we wouldn’t let gay people marry and say, ‘Are you crazy? What were people thinking?’ “My own experience is that no one who is happy or happily married gives a damn what other people do in the bedroom. Unhappy people care a lot. Happy people not so much.” She said since she was 13 she realized she was bisexual. “I didn’t have a name for it, but I just figured most people liked Chinese food and hamburgers. I didn’t think people thought they had to choose.” Her advice to aspiring writers? “Just read and write,” she says. “Please don’t worry about being published. Please don’t worry about being famous. Just worry about writing a good sentence. And read, read, read. Read people who are not like you or who do not have your point of view. Read people who are foreign to you and even people who are hateful to you, but who are good writers.” She is currently working on her third novel, “In Praise of Folly,” about two sisters and their father — “their ups and downs, relationships and misunderstandings” over a period of 30 years. It begins in the late 1930s in Hollywood. Her first children’s book, “Little Sweet Potato,” is scheduled for publication next year, and she is currently working on her second “Sweet Potato” book.

of their shared experiences, there was much he never knew about his father’s past and in “My Father at 100,” he sets out to under-

President Reagan came to personify the values of an older America, and his son traces the sources of these values in his father’s early years in a heartfelt portrait of the man and his country.

RSF resident named new president RSF School students to display artwork and CEO for Transaction Wireless at ‘Hearts for Healing’ event Jan. 30 Transaction Wireless™ (TW), the leading provider of virtual and mobile gift cards, recently announced its new President and CEO, technology and business expansion veteran Doug Schneider, a Rancho Santa Fe resident. Schneider Doug Schneider brings more than 20 years of business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit to the company. Most recently, Schneider was chief executive officer of Genea where he transformed a legacy building control system integration business into a leading, software-as-a-service (SaaS) smart building company, increasing sales by more than 42 percent and almost doubling gross margins. Before Genea, he served as president of the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) Hosting Business Unit at publicly traded Verio, where he built a profitable, premier global service company serving 1 million SMEs in 140 countries as the world’s largest domainbased hosting company and provider of e-commerce enabled websites. He has also held Clevel and senior executive positions with wireless companies AllCall and Cellular One. TW has signed a number of popular retailers to provide email and mobile gifting services on retailers’ websites as well as big brand Facebook Pages. Key clients include Blockbuster, AMC Entertainment, American Eagle Outfitters, Aerie and 77 Kids, Applebee’s, Bass Pro Shops and SpaFinder. “We’ve seen some incredible growth over this past year, both with Transaction Wireless and with the virtual gift card and mobile marketing industries in general,” said Leo Spiegel, TW board director and managing partner at

Mission Ventures, one of TW’s lead investors. “Doug has the ideal expertise of growing companies this size, scaling business models, refining market opportunities and pushing them to the next level. Transaction Wireless has signed several large retailers and channel partners for its technology platform this year, supporting multiple market segments including; restaurants, entertainment, sporting goods, youth apparel and health/wellness, and is poised to grow exponentially this coming year.” “Transaction Wireless has a technology platform with both a breadth and depth of applications that break the constraints and distribution limitations of the conventional plastic gift card industry, literally offering retailers a ‘future proof’ platform to unlock the growth opportunities of digital, mobile and social gift card delivery and interaction.” said Doug Schneider, president and CEO, TW. “Everything from plastic to mobile gifting is made easier with our patented platform while also offering compelling opportunities for direct customer engagement and relationship management, marketing, and fraud prevention, among other things. As Transaction Wireless expands its business even more to meet the accelerating demand for our offerings, the Company remains focused on turning cards into customers for our retailers and partners by bringing digital life to every gift card with our cloud-based platform and ultimately driving more traffic and revenue to our clients’ brands.” Schneider also serves as an investment advisor to Pelion Venture Partners, an earlystage private equity investment group. He graduated from the University of California, Davis, with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and received his MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

On Sunday, Jan. 30, an artists reception and auction of paintings created by students in Janis Reeser's 7/8 middle school art class at R. Roger Rowe School will be held at Flower Hill Promenade, Suite C 150, from 1:30-4:30 p.m. This is the third Hearts for Healing project at R.Roger Rowe School in Rancho Santa Fe. Usually, their art projects are focused solely toward art, but the uniqueness of this program is the community involvement. Before the students even pick up a pencil they are told that they will be donating their paintings to enhance the healing environment and to help lift the spirits of people in their local hospitals and clinics. Creating something to help others and giving up their artwork is a unique and exciting concept of kids. Learning that they as children can make a difference in other people's lives is a very empowering experience. A renowned professional fine artist, Gerrit Greve, Hearts for Healing founder and director, is the creative force behind the project. As part of his instruction, Gerrit encouraged his students to "give with their hearts". The students learn that art can be more than an exercise in self-expression; it can also be become a powerful tool for communication and change. “In their paintings, we see not only an expression of how the students at R. Roger Rowe School in Rancho Santa Fe interpret a giving heart, but how they master the fine art skills of laying down paint, design elements, composition, color theory and, perhaps most importantly, how they convey their heartfelt thought behind their work,” Reeser said. “Hearts for Healing is a meaningful and magical lesson. This is one of the most heart-warming and rewarding experiences. We can see a real change in many of these students; they gain a new confidence in themselves and their abilities.” Flower Hill Promenade is located at 2670 Via De La Valle – suite C 150, west of Paradise Grill, Del Mar, CA 92014.

Rancho Santa Fe Review


Marti Ritto

Opera singer and former Yahoo producer Marti Ritto assumes new role as RSF School District board member By Arthur Lightbourn Marti Ritto, newly sworn-in member of the Rancho Santa Fe School District board, looks at it this way. “Education is a huge part of who we are,” she said. “My husband and I both come from very humble beginnings… We both are products of public education. And I believe we wouldn’t be here without it. We wouldn’t be living in this area. We wouldn’t be able to enjoy the things we do. So we both believe in it immensely.” She also credits her love of music, especially opera, awakened and

encouraged by her high school music teacher, as the other major catalyst for bringing good things into her life, including her husband of 12 years, her former job as the 303rd employee of the Internet services company Yahoo with stock options that made her financially secure, and now her position on the school board. We interviewed Ritto in her home in the gated hillside community of Cielo where she and her family have lived since 2003. Her two daughters, Emma, 9, and Clara, 7, are students at R. Roger Rowe Elementary School. Her

Quick Facts Name: Marti Ritto Distinction: A new board member of the Rancho Santa Fe School District, Ritto brings to the table an extensive background in publishing, Internet technology and music. Resident of: Rancho Santa Fe since 2003 Born: Englewood, Colorado Education: B.A. degree in English Literature, University of Colorado, 1987 Family: She and her husband, Patrick Ritto, vice president of Qualcomm’s Enterprise Services, have been married 12 years. Both have performed with the San Diego Opera. They have two daughters, Emma, 9, and Clara, 7, students at R. Roger Rowe Elementary School in Rancho Santa Fe. Interests: Opera singing, Internet technology, skiing, swimming, and travel Favorite operas: Rossini’s “Il Barbiere di Siviglia” and Mozart’s“Le Nozze di Figaro” Recent reading: “The Emperor’s Tomb” (Cotton Malone), an historical thriller, by Steve Berry Favorite films: “The Age of Innocence,” “Pride and Prejudice,” and The Lord of the Rings trilogy Favorite TV shows: “Mad Men” and the HBO series, “The Tudors” Favorite radio shows: Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion”; and “Car Talk” on National Public Radio (NPR). Philosophy: “Always look for the bright side because there is always an up side; and, keep calm and carry on.”

husband, Patrick Ritto, is vice president of Qualcomm’s Enterprise Services. Ritto, whose professional and maiden name is Marti Berg, is an accomplished opera soprano, stage actress and director of light opera, whose long list of credits include performances with the San Diego Opera, the Lawrence Welk Resort Theater, the Sonoma City Opera, the Lyric Theatre of San Jose, and the New Fillmore Theatre of San Francisco. Ritto is a petite 4’11” with shoulder-length blond hair and green eyes complementing her Norwegian and Finnish ancestry. Her involvement with the school was inspired by her children and by the district’s decision to build a Performing Arts Center on the campus of the R. Roger Rowe School that converted a multi-purpose room into a 8,600-sq.-ft., 350- to 400seat theater for shared use between students and the community. In the current economic belt-tightening time when many schools have abandoned arts programs for students, Ritto feels fortunate to live in a school district that has been able to not only maintain its music program but can now encourage other performing arts as well. “I had started working with [District Superintendent] Lindy Delaney and some of the other moms who were working on the [$2 million] underwriting committee for the Performing Arts Center and I realized what a great opportunity we had to bring, not just an arts program to the school, but also to the wider community.” Ritto, 45, was born Marti Berg in Englewood, Colorado. Both of her parents were from small town Minnesota, much, she says, like Garrison Keillor’s fictional, rhubarb pie-loving Lake Wobegon in the popular radio show “A Prairie Home Companion.” She began singing in

junior high, but it wasn’t until she was attending high school in Bear Creek, Colorado, that she made a pact with her vocal teacher, agreeing to learn one operatic piece if he would cease pestering her about opera. “I learned the piece and was hooked on opera,” she said. While studying for a degree in English Literature at the University of Colorado, which she earned in 1987, she sang in a concert version of Mussorgsky’s “Boris Godunov” with the Denver Symphony Orchestra, performed in local versions of Handel’s “Messiah,” and won a place on the prestigious All State Choir. After college, she entered the textbook publishing world in San Francisco as an educational sales representative while, on the side, becoming the principal singer with The Lamplighters Music Theatre of San Francisco, specializing in musicals and Gilbert & Sullivan light operas. Her career in publish-

ing was abruptly cut short when she could no longer “schlep books around’ after she was diagnosed with osteoarthritis resulting in three hip surgeries and prompting her to study HTML, the Internet markup language used to build Websites While directing a Gilbert & Sullivan opera at Stanford University in 1996, she met her tenor husband who was an engineer with Oracle at the time. She also, on the recommendation of one of her cast members, applied for and was accepted as the 303rd employee of Yahoo, the up and coming Internet services company in Sunnyvale, California. “Everything that has ever happened to me that is good,” she insists, “has come through music.” “I started working for Yahoo as a producer. I was lucky. I got there early and I got to do a lot of fun projects,” she recalled. “I worked first in entertainment and launched the first Yahoo TV, then later, Yahoo Mail, Yahoo Books, Yahoo

Music, and Yahoo Videos.” Ritto left Yahoo in 2002 as a senior producer after the birth of first child. Asked what she would like to accomplish as a school board member, she said: “My goals are twofold. I have a technology goal and a musical/ performing arts goal. “In my performance history, I have seen how music and the arts will help children loosen up because if you’re not an athletic child, if you’re not into team sports, there’s something for everyone in theatrical arts. We want the school to be able to incorporate that into their teaching. So we are considering hiring a drama teacher. We already have a music teacher. And these are the things that, unfortunately right now, because of the budget crunch, are falling by the wayside in so many schools.” She credits the Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation with creating many of the programs in the school. The foundation, she said, picks up the slack that state funding and taxes don’t cover. “We wouldn’t have a music program if we didn’t have the Education Foundation. We wouldn’t have all the extra technology we have. “The R. Roger Rowe School does a fantastic job with technology as it is,” she added, “but I would really like to see if there is any way I can bring my publishing and technology background to help. “For example, one of the things publishers have long talked about is making every book available digitally and making them available by chapter … because not every single class uses every single chapter of every single textbook. “I can’t say that we’re going to buy the children Kindles, because I don’t think that will happen, but it would be great to provide digital textbooks at a cost savings to the district.”

Rancho Santa Fe resident joins La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology board Rancho Santa Fe resident Mark Fischer, a successful local business leader and strong community supporter, was recently elected to the La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology’s board Mark Fischer of directors. Fischer is the president and owner of San Diego-based Sullivan Moving and Storage Company (Sullivan), the largest United Van Lines agent in San Diego County. Sullivan is a also a shareholder in UniGroup, Inc. a $2 billion holding company that is ranked as one of the largest privately held companies in the United States. UniGroup owns United Van Lines and Mayflower Van Lines and is owned exclusively by its operating agents. “Mr. Fischer is a “can do� kind of individual who has built his company into one of the leaders in its field,� said Mitchell Kronenberg, Ph.D., the La Jolla Institute’s president and chief scientific officer. “This attitude, coupled with his personal passion for fighting immunebased diseases, will make him a real asset on our Board of Directors.� Fischer said he joined the La Jolla Institute Board for two primary reasons. One was his desire to become more direct-

ly involved in public service activities, as a board member for a nonprofit organization. The second reason was more personal. “I have experienced first hand over the past 24 years how an immune system disease can impact both the individuals who have them and their families,� he said. “My wife of 31 years, Carol, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 24 years ago. There is no known cure yet for this very debilitating disease. The work being done at the La Jolla Institute focuses on understanding the immune system in order to develop better treatments and cures for many diseases that are immune system driven, including MS.� Multiple sclerosis (MS) belongs to a group of disorders known as autoimmune diseases, which occur when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body’s own healthy tissue. In MS, the immune system targets the myelin sheath that normally surrounds and protects nerve cells. Fischer and his wife recently held the Institute’s “Autumn Sunset over Del Mar� friendraising event at their Rancho Santa Fe home. The event was designed to educate guests about the Institute’s critical disease–fighting focus. The La Jolla Institute is the only research institute in San Diego and one of the few in the world focused on finding causes and new treatments for diseases based See RESIDENT, page 22

SD Veterans for Peace raise funds to help local homeless By Karen Billing Staff Writer San Diego Veterans for Peace is doing what they can to bring a little warmth to downtown San Diego’s homeless population, as well as shine a light on an issue that is hidden in plain sight. The group’s Campaign for Compassion is raising money to distribute ponchos and sleeping bags to San Diego’s homeless. Since the week before Christmas, they have delivered 225 sets, including a donation trip last Saturday. So far they have raised $8,744. “The money has been coming in rather amazingly,” said Gil Field, director of communications, who notes they hope enough donations come to keep the drive going until warmer weather sets in. Field, a local resident, is an immediate past president of the organization that promotes peace and seeks to increase public awareness of the costs of war. One way they do that is by creating “Arlington West” downtown near the Midway—they put crosses in the ground to memorialize those lost in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Down near the Midway is where Field and his group connected with several homeless veterans and were given insight into how big the homeless problem is in San Diego. While estimates are that about 40 percent of the homeless people downtown are veterans, the group’s drive is to meet all homeless people’s needs. Individually members had purchased and delivered 45 sets of ponchos and sleeping bags but it didn’t become a chapter campaign until Dec. 7. Big 5 Sporting Goods and Outdoor Products of Los Angeles gave the group a discount on the items allowing them to purchase, in bulk, very warm 30-degree Coleman sleeping bags and waterproof ponchos. The sleeping bag is given out in a nylon stuff sack—the sleeping bag only takes up about half the space so people can use the bag to keep other items dry. Unfortunately, Field said it is not hard to find people in need. He said under almost every Interstate 5 overpass downtown there are at least 100 people living there. He estimates in the four-block radius of 16th Street and

Island, there are about 300 people sleeping on the street. This is downtown San Diego, Field said, and yet from the way it looks it’s as though you’re in one of the poorest countries in the world. “When you go to these enclaves, it’s families, it’s women, it’s old people,” Field said. “Recently it’s a lot of people who look just like you and I, they look like they have all the trappings of being middle class. I’m seeing more and more 20-year-olds, mostly men. They look just like my kids.” He said he sees people “fresh from housing,” who have nothing but the oftentimes nice clothes on their back, walk into these enclaves and settle down to sleep on a piece of cardboard. The city has set up a 150bed tent for homeless veterans behind the Goodwill off Rosencrantz. There is a civilian tent on 16th and Newton Streets. Veterans for Peace will often go to the tent shelters to find people in need who have been turned away due to capacity. “I think that our city fathers, by setting up the veterans tent and civilian tent, that is just a drop in the buck-

Homeless people sleep in front of the San Diego City Library downtown, some in sleeping bags donated by San Diego Veterans for Peace. et,” Field said. “It doesn’t even begin to serve the need.” The Veterans for Peace group usually goes out at around 7:30 p.m., when homeless people have settled into their spots. They try not to attract a lot of attention and seek out people who appear to need the most help. It is a very emotional exchange, Field said, when they give out the bags. During a Dec. 21 trip in the pouring rain, a proud, homeless veteran in his 50s

had tears in his eyes when he received the bag from Field. The man told him, “Thank you for your humanity.” Field hugged him and said, “You’re welcome brother.” Field has been working with the homeless population for about a year, with the Bethel Memorial AME Church downtown. He and other Veterans for Peace members assist in prepping 500 dinners that the church then delivers to the homeless on the last Friday of every month.




“Five-hundred dinners go away in no time,” Field said. “They allot three hours for the distribution and they don’t even need [that much time].” If interested in donating to the ponchos and sleeping bags campaign, visit Checks can also be sent via mail to 11575 Caminito La Bar #23, San Diego, CA 92126. Checks can be made out to treasurer Colleen Angel.

Photographer publishes book featuring unique images from Antarctica Photographer’s work will be on display at 38th Annual Open California Wildlife Art Fest

Steve Gould (right) with his wife Mary Marshall. By Karen Billing Few people can say they’ve been surrounded by a sea of penguins. Local resident Steve Gould can and has amazing photographs as proof. Gould recently published a book of photography from his memorable trip to Antarctica, called “To the End of the Earth, A Journey to the Southern Ocean.” While Gould has photographed sea turtles in Hawaii, monkeys in a Bali forest and lion cubs in Kenya, his absolute favorite subject has been the Antarctica penguins. “Nothing can really beat the penguins,” Gould said. “My wife and I think of that trip as a once-in-a-lifetime trip. We dreamt about penguins and icebergs for weeks after we got back. We really went to the end of the earth, that’s how we felt…we felt like we weren’t anywhere normal or usual. You really can’t

(Above and right) Photos in Antarctica by Steve Gould beat those penguins in their own environment.” In addition to his book, on sale at, Gould’s work will be on display at the Pacific Southwest Wildlife Association’s 38th Annual Open California Wildlife Art Fest at Liberty Station on Feb. 12-13. Gould is one of 18 artists in the juried event and will display works from his Antarctica trip and new underwater life shots from a recent trip to Indonesia. Gould has taken photographs since 1965, but spent most of his working life as a chemistry professor at Oregon State University. He retired from teaching in 2003 and

was able to focus on his art more seriously. “This is what I call life after life,” Gould said. Gould specializes in landscape and wildlife photography, particularly the under sea world, as he is an experienced diver. He became a certified diver in 1981, but didn’t start doing underwater shoots until 1991. It is an indescribable feeling, he said, of being underwater, weightless, surrounded by photogenic and colorful fish and coral. Gould has completed diving shoots all over the world— places such as Fiji, Galapagos, Red Sea and Palau.

Along with his wife Mary Marshall, Gould traveled to Indonesia in September for five weeks, spending most of that time underwater. “It was just incredible,” said Gould of the some 70 dives they did in different parts of Indonesia. He took more than 3,000 pictures in Indonesia, which is nothing compared to his haul from Antarctica. He took 20,000 pictures in his 26 days on the Antarctic cruise. It’s a huge undertaking to look through all those photos and find the real “hero shots,” he said—the ones meant to be shown and sold. With his wife, Gould left

for Antarctica on Christmas 2009. They flew to Lima, Peru, to the tip of Argentina, a city called Ushuaia that is considered the southernmost city in the world. “It was a 35-hour odyssey from San Diego to Ushuaia,” Gould said. “We spent a few days there and then we got on the ship. It was an expedition, an absolute adventure.” The Cheesemans Ecology Safari cruise included stops in the Falklands and South Georgia Islands before reaching Antarctica, where they stayed for seven days. “Once we got on land we were on our own and we could go anywhere we wanted as long as you don’t interfere with the wildlife,” Gould said. “We could not approach any closer than 15 feet, but if the animals want to come up and give you a kiss they can and they did.” The penguins were a highlight, coming right up to Gould as he watched. Some are small, others like the King penguin are more like 3 feet tall. The King penguins have striking yellow features on their black and white bodies—the chicks are covered with fluffy brown feathers. The photos were on display at an August 2010 show at Gallery 21 in addition to being put into the new book. “The show was incredibly successful, it averaged 145 visits a day during the 12 days of the show,” Gould said. “The response I got from everybody was so positive that I knew I had to do the book.” He completed his first draft before leaving for his Indonesia trip and it was published through in November.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

RSF resident helps feed people in need through Fish. Food. Feel Good. By Karen Billing Rancho Santa Fe resident Todd Bluechel kept it simple when he thought about starting his own non-profit. He’s an avid fisherman, he knows there are sometimes unwanted fish and there are plenty of people who are hungry and in need. He created Fish. Food. Feel Good. (f3g for short) as a way for sport fisherman to donate fish from their trips to organizations who can then turn the fish into a tasty meal for others. With local charities such as Father Joe’s Village, San Diego Rescue Mission, San Diego Food Bank and the Samoan Independent aboard, f3g has collected 20,000 pounds of fish in its first six months, feeding more than 20,000 people. Bluechel has been present for mealtimes when the donated fish are served and the happy faces of the recipients make his organization live up to the “feel good” in its name. “It’s a very satisfying feeling to be able to do this,” said Bluechel. “I wish every fisherman could see the end result of his donation.” While Bluechel has lived in Fairbanks Ranch for the last five years, he was born and raised in Del Mar and has been fishing ever since he was a little boy. “I see fishing as a challenge and I quickly became addicted,” said Bluechel. He started with blue gills, moved on to trout—now his quarry of choice is black marlin in Panama or steelheads in Alaska. In creating f3g, he thought about how when fishing boats dock, there is sometimes unclaimed, unwanted fish. He became inspired by the Robert Redford movie “Lions for Lambs,” where the premise was that people need to give something back to the world for the greater good. “I knew of a problem and instead of complaining about it, I decided to do something about it,” Bluechel said. It took about a year to get all the pieces and partnerships of the program together, but since its launch in June 2010, it has been “wildly successful,” he said.

Rancho Santa Fe resident Todd Bluechel. “Part of the primary attraction is the simplicity of it,” Bluechel said. “There’s no cost to anybody to do this, it benefits everyone.” Another major plus is that the program’s model is easily replicated—Bluechel hopes he can get f3g running in other fishing ports such as in Florida, Washington, Louisiana and on the East Coast. How it works is when sport fisherman go out from boat landings, they are typically going on one- to 15-day trips. Fisherman are allowed 20 fish a day—on a three-day trip, they might come in with 60 fish, typically albacore, yellowtail, yellowfin and bluefin tunas. Of those 60 fish, a fisherman may not be able to use some of them, so they are given the option to donate to f3g. A fish processing company then collects the donations and either kept whole or filleted for f3g. Some organizations, such as Samoan Independent and Father Joe’s, prefer the fish whole. The Samoan group, based in Lemon Grove, utilizes every part of the fish.

Father Joe’s likes to receive the fish whole as they have a culinary school, teaching Father Joe’s clients how to cook and get a job in the food service or hospitality industry. The whole fish donations are helpful for the students, some of whom have never learned to clean or prepare freshly caught fish. Bluechel stresses that there is no waste generated in f3g’s process. “I am very conscious with how our landfills are almost full and I didn’t want to contribute to that waste,” Bluechel said. Instead, the Father Joe’s students collect the leftover fish heads and guts and f3g gives the carcasses to lobster and crab fisherman, so it is going back into the ocean where it would be naturally. Bluechel stresses that the program is not in place to promote excessive killing. “Our primary goal is that sport fisherman only keep what they need to feed themselves,” he said. But, when boats dock, there are sometimes unclaimed, unwanted fish so Fish. Food. Feel Good. will take the unwanted fish and donate them to local charities. He said people need to understand the difference between sport fishing and commercial fishing. Sport fishing only accounts for 2/10th of one percent of the amount of migratory fish caught and killed, while commercial fishing accounts for 99 percent. While sport fisherman “surgically target their quarry,” Bluechel said commercial fishers use tactics such as huge nets that can bring in an entire school of fish, and long-line fishing, which can hook “by-catch,” other sea life that wasn’t intended to be caught. He said he applauds people who voice concern for the fish population, but hopes that their motivation and passion would be directed toward the commercial fishing industry, not to those who try to help feed people in need.

Education Matters

Restricting students from freedom of speech By Marsha Sutton Freedom of speech for students has been a quagmire for educators and constitutional scholars for decades. As students have p u s h e d boundaries, they have chal- Marsha lenged adults to Sutton preserve students’ basic democratic freedoms while ensuring the

right to privacy, the right not to be bullied, and the right to limit speech that can incite hateful or violent action. Students in a school environment are not guaranteed the same expansive right to freedom of speech or expression granted to adults in the United States, but pinpointing exactly where to draw the line has become a recurrent dilemma. High school and college campuses repeatedly confront the problem, which has presented itself in an infinite variety of ways. Anti-gay slogans

on a T-shirt, semi-nude photos in a literary magazine, and criticism of administrators in student newspaper editorials are among some of the legal challenges local high school educators have dealt with in past years. In Florida, a former high school student, Katherine Evans, won a two-year legal battle when a settlement was reached that erased a suspension from her record for creating a Facebook page that described one of her teachers as “the worst teacher I’ve ever met.” Pembroke Pines Charter High School principal, Peter Bayer, said the comment, made in 2007, was “cyber-bullying” and “harassment” of a staff member, and he suspended the honor student for three days. Evans will also receive a payment of $15,000 for legal fees and $1 for “damages.” Given what students are currently saying about each other on Facebook and the horrific Formspring, this comment seems tame. Yet the principal felt Evans crossed the line and punished her all out of proportion. Schools are often quick, too quick, to stifle student speech that may be insulting but certainly poses no threat to personal safety, incites riots or is hateful. A clear distinction should be made between expressing an opinion that someone may not like versus comments that can cause personal harm. Complicating the issue further is how to distinguish between what high school students and college students may be allowed to express, who determines the conditions under which free expression should be suppressed, and what justification can be used to control speech when the “perpetrators” in college are legal adults. Restrictive rights on college campuses A new report shows that the majority of college campuses are far too restrictive of students’ rights to freedom of expression. In its most recent annual report, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education found that the majority of major American colleges and universities fail to meet acceptable standards for freedom of speech for their student bodies. FIRE, a national free speech advocacy organization, annually reports free-speech trends in major four-year colleges in the U.S. In this year’s report, titled “Spotlight on Speech Codes 2011: The State of Free Speech on Our Nation’s Campuses,” 390 universities were reviewed. Of the 104 private colleges, 65 percent received a red light, 24 percent a yellow light, 3 percent a green light and 8 percent not rated. Of the 286 public colleges, 67 percent received a red light, 29 percent a yellow light, 3 percent a green light and 1 percent were not rated. That means that about 260 colleges out of the combined total of 390 were found to be far too restrictive of free speech, while only 12 of the 390 were deemed acceptable. One example FIRE cited of restrictive policies was the following: “The University of Massachusetts Amherst has a policy about ‘controversial rallies’ requiring that if a rally is deemed controversial, it may only take place between 12 and 1 p.m. and must be held on the student union steps, and the sponsoring student group must designate at least six of its own members to act as a security team.” FIRE defines the rating system as follows: A red-light means that the institution has at least one policy “both clearly and substantially restricting freedom of speech or that bars public access to its speech-related policies by requiring a university log-in and password for access.” A “clear” restriction is one that “unambiguously infringes on protected expression.” FIRE further defines the log-in and password problem as follows: “When a university restricts access to its speech-related policies by requiring a log-in and password, it denies prospective students and their parents the ability to weigh this crucial information. At FIRE, we consider this action by a university to be deceptive and serious enough that it alone warrants a ‘red-light’ rating.” A yellow-light school “maintains policies that could be interpreted to suppress protected speech or policies that, while clearly restricting freedom of speech, restrict only narrow categories of speech.” As an example, a policy banning posters promoting alcohol consumption clearly restricts speech but is limited in scope. A green-light means that FIRE finds that a university’s policies do not seriously threaten campus expression. But “a green light does not indicate that a school actively supports free expression; it simply means that the school’s written policies do not pose a serious threat to free speech.” Since the number is so small, it’s easy to list the green-light colleges: Black Hills State University, Carnegie Mellon, Cleveland State, Dartmouth, Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania, College of William and Mary, University of Nebraska at Lincoln, University of Pennsylvania, University of South Dakota, University of Tennessee at Knoxville, University of Utah and University of Virginia. Schools that are “not rated” are those that hold “a certain set of values above a commitment to freedom of speech.” Universities not rated by FIRE are: Bard College, Baylor, Brigham Young,

Pepperdine, Saint Louis University, United States Military Academy, United States Naval Academy, Vassar College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Yeshiva University. Locally, the following colleges have been given the red-light designation: Cal State San Marcos, Cal State Long Beach, California Institute of Technology, Claremont McKenna, San Diego State, Stanford, and UC San Diego, Riverside, Davis, Irvine and Santa Cruz. Nearly all the Ivy League schools and most of the other top-tier private universities nationally received a red-light rating. UCLA, UC Berkeley and UC Santa Barbara received yellowlight ratings. Bleak findings The mission if FIRE, according to the Web site, is to “defend and sustain individual rights at America’s colleges and universities. These rights include freedom of speech, legal equality, due process, religious liberty and sanctity of conscience – the essential qualities of individual liberty and dignity.” The schools that FIRE reviewed were those included in the top 100 national universities and the top 50 best liberal arts colleges as reported in the 2009 issue of U. S. News and World Report. Also included were an additional 237 major public universities which, according to the report, are legally bound to protect the right to free speech for students. As bleak as the results seem to indicate, FIRE revealed that this was the third year in a row that the percentage of red-light public schools decreased, dropping from 79 percent three years ago to 67 percent today. “Since public universities are legally bound to protect their students’ First Amendment rights, any percentage above zero is unacceptable, so much work remains to be done,” FIRE reports. “However, we are encouraged by this ongoing positive trend.” Private universities, which are not bound by the First Amendment but promise free speech to students and faculty, also improved their ratings, dropping red-light percentages from 70 percent to 65 percent this year. Progress is noted, but FIRE states that speech codes still “impermissibly violate those promises.” Because the First Amendment regulates only government conduct, students at private institutions have no legal guarantee of protection. According to FIRE’s study, “This does not mean, however, that students and faculty members at private schools are not entitled to free expression. In fact, most private universities explicitly promise freedom of speech and academic freedom, presumably to lure the most talented students and faculty, since most people would not want to study or teach where they could not speak and write freely.” As an example, Syracuse University’s student handbook states that it is “committed to the principle that freedom of expression is essential to the search for truth, and consequently welcomes and encourages the expression of different and varied opinions, and of dissent.” Yet, despite this, Syracuse, like many other red-light universities, prohibits speech that would be protected elsewhere under the First Amendment, FIRE claims. Determining what constitutes permissible speech is subjective. Most speech is protected except for specific types of speech that the Supreme Court has ruled an exception under the First Amendment: “speech that incites reasonable people to immediate violence, so-called ‘fighting words’ (face-to-face confrontations that lead to physical altercations), harassment, true threats and intimidation, obscenity, and libel.” One of the more troublesome restraints are the so-called “free-speech zones” – areas on campus, often in remote locations, that are designated for rallies or demonstrations and often require prior permits or advance approval from the university. “Such ‘prior restraints’ are generally inconsistent with the First Amendment,” according to FIRE. Constitutional quandaries The debate is loaded with constitutional quandaries. When a controversial speaker at a college event that’s attended by hundreds or even thousands of students is shouted down by a dozen activists, is it permissible for 12 individuals to infringe on the rights of the majority who have a right to hear what the speaker has to say? If that speaker spews hateful words against minority students, is it right for the campus to allow the speech? If the Westboro Baptist Church decides to picket the funeral of a fallen hero, do we as a society have a right to suppress their speech, no matter how despicable it may be? Do students have a right to belittle and attack their classmates on social networking sites like Formspring? Because it can lead to all sorts of repressive ends, censorship is not the American way. Colleges in particular should be safe havens for the airing of new ways of thinking and creative expressions of ideas. Yet there are limits on what can be said in public. Our powers of imaginative speech that push the envelope have outpaced our ability to sort out what crosses the line into the realm of the impermissible. As technological advancements and societal incivility encourage both exceptional and depraved self-expression, we can expect more and more First Amendment challenges in court. Let us hope our judges have the wisdom and the intelligence to preserve America’s basic liberties without trespassing on individual rights. It’s a balancing act of enormous significance.

SCIENCE continued from page 1 clusters. Coil’s research interest lies at the intersection between large-scale structure, cosmology, and galaxy evolution. An assistant professor in the UCSD department of physics, Coil conducts her research as part of the Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences (CASS) and focuses on the evolution of galaxies when the Universe was half its current age. This provides enough of a time baseline to measure significant evolution but is near enough that large statistical samples can be gathered. She works primarily with observational evidence, utilizing multi-wavelength imaging and spectroscopy, and interpreting her findings by collaborating with theorists to compare her results with numerical and analytic simulations. The outstanding promise of Coil’s work was recognized in 2010 when she received a Sloan Research Fellowship awarded to exceptional young researchers early in their academic careers and at a pivotal stage of their research. Philip Steven Low is a pioneer in the field of computational biometrics. He is founder and CEO of NeuroVigil is a wireless neurodiagnostics company with offices in La Jolla. Low is the inventor of the iBrain — a wireless device for at-home sleep monitoring and diagnosis. Other applications for the technology include the systematic search for brainderived biomarkers of neu-

Rancho Santa Fe Review ropathologies that include narcolepsy and Alzheimer’s disease. Major pharmaceutical companies are interested in iBrain as a means to detect subtle changes in brain activity during clinical trials before visible signs of drug side effects surface. The iBrain received top honors in the 2010 CONNECT Most Innovative New Product Awards competition (Life Sciences/Diagnostics and Research Tools category), and Low was named as one of the top young innovators of 2010 (under the age of 35) by MIT Technology Review magazine. Eric Topol is a cardiologist, genomics expert, and considered the leading thought leader in the emerging health industry. Chief academic officer of Scripps Health and chief medical officer of the La Jolla-based West Wireless Health Institute, Topol has been involved with wireless medicine since its inception. In 2010, he gave high-profile presentations at venues ranging from The Future of Wireless Medicine Conference to the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas. Topol also has done much to expand the understanding of how genetics can determine a person’s health risks. A study on a gene expression test for coronary disease, on which he is a principal author, was ranked by Time Magazine as among the 2010 Top 10 Medical Breakthroughs. In 2011, Topol predicts accelerated, notable advances in genomic medicine in five key areas: patient screening for more effective use of prescrip-

tion drug therapies; finding and targeting cancer tumors; expanding and refining subtypes of diabetes for more effective treatment together with wireless monitoring of glucose levels; online learning and credentialing of physicians on various aspects of genomic medicine, and continued improvements in personal gene tests for consumers. Yuanyuan (YY) Zhou specializes in making computers safer and more reliable. She joined the UCSD faculty in 2009 as the first holder of the Qualcomm Endowed Chair in Mobile Computing in the Jacobs School of Engineering. Zhou’s research the focused around the challenges in designing the next generation of computer systems: energy and thermal management for data centers, software dependability, and storage systems. Since joining UCSD, she has secured National Science Foundation (NSF) support as principal investigator (PI) on four projects and is co-PI on a fifth. Her grants as solo investigator total more than $1.6 million. Zhou is also part of a team of researchers at UCSD and five other universities involved in a $10 million project that proposes to re-think and enhance the role that software can play in a new class of computing machines that are adaptive and highly energy efficient. The idea is to use system components — led by proactive software — to routinely monitor, predict, and adapt to the variability in manufactured computer systems. — Lynne Friedmann is a science writer based in Solana Beach.

n 1878, John Wanamaker of Philadelphia department store fame decreed January to be the time for a “white sale.” Bed linens, which were available in white only, were sold at a discount. It’s believed he might have done so to keep linen makers in business during a slow time of year.


SURVEYS continued from page 1 One of Venekamp’s main concerns was broadband access. “That’s where we have more challenges.” Holler said. “We’re less certain how that service works inside, it may work great in some spots and not in others.” Holler said options then are for residents to try different providers and see what works best in their particular location. Additionally, the

Its research impacts a broad spectrum of diseases including multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, Crohn’s disease and numerous other autoimmune diseases. The Institute also focuses on infectious diseases, such as dengue virus, influenza and tuberculosis, along with asthma, allergies, cancer and heart disease, and has the potential to help millions of people around the world. “In touring the Institute’s labs, I have met a number of world-class scientists whose dedication and desire to find

Association has taken a lead on the issue by working to get their latent authority activated from LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Commission) for the Rancho Santa Fe Community Services District. The CSD was given the ability to form utility undergrounding districts last year. “It’ll be up to individual neighborhoods whether they want to participate or not,” Holler said. If neighbors opt to go through with undergrounding utility poles, they may be able to pair it with fiber optics for broadband service, a cost-effective method as the trenches to accommodate broad band will already be opened up in the neighborhoods. Holler and Smith said there might still be challenges in getting fiber optic cables to the individual homes. Undergrounding and broadband service are completely separate issues, Smith said. The undergrounding process will take several years to complete, but the Association hopes to gauge the interest level within the Covenant through its survey and help kick-start the process for residents who are ready to move forward.

Sullivan is listed as a Miracle Maker and a Friend of the Hospital and is a major sponsor every year for their Celebration of Champions. Sullivan also has been an advocate and supporter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in San Diego for the past 20 years, providing trucking and warehousing services for their annual walk, bay-to-bay bike tour, and dinner charity auction. Sullivan was recently nominated as the Corporate Partner Volunteer of the Year for 2010 by the Pacific South Coast Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Farmer’s Open a big opportunity for golfers By Phil Dailey Staff Writer For one area golfer, next week’s Farmer’s Insurance Open is more than just another golf tournament, though he will try and tell himself that it’s not. Anthony Paolucci has made a name for himself already in the golf world as he was named the Rolex Junior Golfer of the Year last fall, an honor designated for golf’s best national player among 12- to 18-year-olds. Paolucci, who lives in Del Mar, is currently a senior at La Jolla Country Day and has committed to USC to play collegiately. It was announced last week that Paolucci earned a sponsors’ exemption to play in the event at Torrey Pines Golf Course. “I had a really good summer in junior golf … and as a local player in the area asking for a sponsors exemption couldn’t hurt,” Paolucci said. “It ended up working out really well.” Paolucci said he and his father simply crafted an e-mail with his resume and sent it in. “It’s such a great field, and I knew it was going to be a difficult field to get in,” he said. “I

Obviously I want to play well, but I also want to enjoy the week since this is my first Tour event. Whatever happens, I’m almost in a win-win situation here so just go out and enjoy it.” Typically, the Torrey Pines event is one of the biggest of the early season as golf’s elite players come together for the first time. This year’s field includes Rocco

Mediate, Angel Cabrera, John Daly, Bubba Watson as well as Phil Mickelson and likely Tiger Woods, who has not officially committed, but is expected to play in the event for the first time in three years. Mickelson, of course, is one of San Diego’s greatest players and has won the event three times. It’s fitting that he will play a practice round with Paolucci, an up-and-comer who just may be the next great golfer in the area. “That’s going to be a blast,” Paolucci said. Though he describes his first Tour event as a win-win, there are also some high stakes if he plays well among golf’s best players. Last season for the Torreys, he demonstrated just how good he is at such a young age. "He hits the ball a ton, he's got a great short game, but far and a way what stands out is his emotional maturity on the golf course and how he understands the game of golf," said Bill Cahoone, the golf coach at LJCD. "He doesn't really get nervous on the golf course, you

Admission on Monday is free, youth under 15 accompanied by an adult are free all week as are active military and their families. Go to don't see him get upset. He's definitely learned those lessons along the way." One of Paolucci’s goals is to be named to the Walker Cup, which is the amateur equivalent to the Ryder Cup. A good showing at the PGA level will go a long way in earning that honor. “It’s just another tournament,” Paolucci said. “If I can think of it like that … if I’ve got a 5-footer for birdie out there, it’s still a 5-footer. There shouldn’t be any more pressure out there because it is a Tour event.”

Ron observed the very qualities that made the future president a powerful leader. Yet for all of their shared experiences, there was much that Ron never knew about his father’s past, and he sets out to understand this beloved, if often enigmatic, figure. Reagan will be interviewed by Phyllis Pfeiffer, Publisher, La Jolla Light, Del Mar Times, Solana Beach Sun, Rancho Santa Fe Review, and the Carmel Valley News.

Rancho Men’s Soccer take prestigious Kings Cup A team representing Rancho Santa Fe Men’s Soccer traveled to Las Vegas during Martin Luther King Jr. weekend to play in the highly respected Kings Cup. Playing in the Over 48’s division, and led by Ranch resident Paul Slater, they took on teams from both coasts and were looking to put up a good showing as first time participants. In the group stage, Rancho were in the “group of death” with last year’s champions, and a semi-finalist. Their record was superb with three wins and tie to progress as group winners and earned them a #1 seed in the semi finals. Their domination continued as they played Fat Tuesdays FC, a team from Vancouver, Wash., and played a flawless semi-final beating them 4-0 to progress to the final. The final was a face-off against the group winners, Rancho and Behans Irish Pub, from Burlingame, Calif. It was a tremendous game, both teams expending every bit of energy they had left in a back and forward match. It took a moment of brilliance, befitting of such a close game, from Rancho midfielder Joe Giacolone, who unleashed a rocket of a shot from 30 yards past a helpless keeper to put Rancho ahead. Rancho were able to dominate possession and held on to the lead to secure the championship. Accepting the trophy on behalf of the team Paul Slater said “You don’t play six games in three days and win these things without a complete team effort, it was an honor and a privilege to battle shoulder to shoulder with all these players.”

iPhone and Verizon Three solo-show exhibitions open at MCA San Diego sitting in a tree... By Mark Daughters, Interlaced San Diego Inc. Recently, Verizon and Apple announced that they were finally joining forces. The mythical beast that is the Verizon iPhone exists and it will be released out of its cage in early February. Since this announcement, I’ve been slammed with calls from clients. They all want to know what they need to do to be ready for this iPhone rebirth. First off, I want to identify the main two different groups of people who want the iPhone on Verizon. •Those with iPhones now on AT&T •Those who are on Verizon with a Blackberry or Android phone. To those AT&T challenged people: If you have bought your iPhone in the last year or so (or any smartphone for that matter), take heed. AT&T recently upped the early termination fee to $325! (minus $10 dollars for each paid month you pay them from the start of your contract.) It gets better. That fancy iPhone 4 you just got, less than a year ago? It only will work on AT&T. That’s right, you’ll have to buy a brand new iPhone to use it to talk to Verizon’s “Can you hear me now?” guy. Put down your pitch forks! It isn’t AT&T’s or Verizon’s fault! The technology used in AT&T iPhones, known as GSM, is completely different than Verizon uses for their network, known as CDMA. If you look closely, the outer antenna of the Verizon iPhone is slightly different than the AT&T version. The utopian future in my dreams sees a day where one iPhone could use either. Sadly my top from Inception is still spinning on that one. (See Inception if you haven’t already.) Also, AT&T captives, keep in mind some of the trade offs. The Verizon iPhone, as with any Verizon phone, can not be on a call and view the web at the same time. This might be quite annoying to those who depend on YouTube and FaceBook while their mother-in-law is on the other line. This is only the case for where you’re not connected to Wifi, take note. Not a huge deal, but some might prefer to drop the call from said relative. To those current Verizon customers: Your wait is finally over! (Next

month) You’ll be able to pickup the same fancy, video chatting, iPod playing, App downloading machine that you’ve wanted for so long. You are even privileged enough to preorder it before any one else on Feb. 3. What could be better! Well, a few things. (No not the on screen keyboard. iPhone’s keyboard is better than your BlackBerry’s, I don’t care what you say!) Big V just so happens to be ending their upgrade-yourphone early plan just in time for all you iConverts. You’ll have to wait as much as 20 months to be eligible for the nice and easy $199 iPhone price. Sorry. Also, you’ll want to be VERY careful when moving your data from a Blackberry. I’ve seen far too many clients loose all of their data by using BlackBerries awful PC/Mac software. I’d recommend you contact someone who has done it before if you don’t know how, or don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself. (Tip — I’ve had great success with my clients using Gmail’s sync capability.) One final word on this monumental occasion. It may seem like the end of all of your troubles; You will be able to make calls! You’ll be able to have the best phone in the world! You’ll, also, want to make sure that you aren’t the jealous type. The people in the know don’t think this Verizon announcement will throw Apple off of their NewiPhone-Every-Summer schedule. So if you have to have the latest and greatest, but don’t like to pay for it, keep that in mind. Neither AT&T or Verizon will be giving you the iPhone 5 (or whatever it will be called) if you’ve just upgraded recently. “Can you hear me now?” “Good, now pay up!” Mark Daughters, Interlaced San Diego Inc., can be reached at 858-699-8958; 1201 Camino Del Mar, Unit 102, Del Mar, CA 92014;

RSFCC Gala auction winners enjoy a day SENIOR SCENE Balance screenings offered at the Senior Center of baseball with ‘RSF Dream Team’ By Terrie Litwin, executive director, RSF Senior Center According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 8 million American adults report having a chronic problem with balance. Additionally, 2.4 Terrie Litwin million American adults report having a chronic problem with dizziness. Having good balance means being able to control and maintain your body’s position, whether moving or remaining still. A good sense of balance allows you to walk without staggering, get up from a chair without falling and climb stairs without tripping. Having good balance is important in carrying out daily activities. Losing balance is a serious problem for older adults. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that, each year, more than one third of people over 65 years of age suffer a fall. Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths among older adults. Falls can also lead to non fatal but debilitating injuries such as hip fractures which often result in limitations on activities and loss of independence. Proper balance depends upon three senses – vision, sense of spacial orientation, and the vestibular system of the inner ear. Each of these senses diminishes with age, making balance more difficult. Unfortunately, fear of falling often leads seniors to become less active when, in fact, becoming more active can help reduce risk. Scientists are working to understand the complex interactions between the brain and the part of the inner ear responsible for balance. They are also studying the effectiveness of certain exercises as a treatment option for balance disorders. There are

many possible causes of balance problems. Sometimes they are a sign of other health problems, therefore, it is important to have a potential balance disorder diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. On Friday, Jan. 28, from 2:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m., licensed physical therapist Jim Prussack will conduct individual balance screenings and offer personalized recommendations to assist you in improving your balance and lowering your risk of falling. Please call the Senior Center at (858)7563041 to schedule your appointment.

A local family’s purchase of an RSF Community Center’s Gala auction item gave 10 lucky boys a once-ina-lifetime opportunity to participate in a three-hour private baseball clinic playing against the pros! On Sunday, Jan. 9, local RSF Major League Baseball All Stars Kirk McCaskill, Mark Loretta, Charlie Nagy & Mike Sweeny spent the day reviewing the ins and outs of the allAmerican game with the boys. Kirk McCaskill led the boys through a warm-up routine with creative running drills, and stations for fielding, hitting and throwing were set up. The boys were then separated into three teams and finished off with a rousing Home Run Derby. Frozen Ropes Baseball and Softball Training Facility and the Witmeyer family supplied each boy with a sports bag filled with baseball related goodies including baseballs with collector cases and Rawling wood bats for personalized autographs. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon! The Community Center would like to thank Frozen Ropes, the Witmeyer family, Kirk McCaskill, Mark Loretta, Charlie Nagy and Mike Sweeny for taking time out of their busy schedules to support the local Community Center. A special thanks goes to the Faltinsky family for bidding on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

IOWA Test scores are in: for the second year in a row, Horizon Prep students rank in the 97th percentile nationwide! “This means our students rank overall in the top 3 percent of schools in the nation,” says Horizon Prep Registrar and Director of Enrollment Services, Allisen Hemple, “This is our 5th straight year with a score above the 90th percentile ranking!” “Unlike many other schools who ‘teach to the test,’ we administer the IOWA test in the fall, says Horizon Prep Headmaster Dr. Ken Kush. “This allows our teachers to be armed with valuable data during our school year. As a result, teachers are able to chal-

lenge our students to exceed standard outcomes.” Students are tested in six main categories: Reading, Language, Math, Science, Sources of Information and Social Studies (History, Geography, Economics, Government & Society). “Some of the break-out scores are as exciting as our overall school-wide composite,” says Hemple, “our entire middle school scores three years above Grade Level Equivalency and every grade, 2nd-5th (1st graders are not tested), scores two years above Grade Level Equivalency. Also, our 3rd-6th graders rank in the 99th Percentile Nationwide for overall composite, and our 4th-6th graders rank in the 99th Percentile

Nationwide for every single subject!” “Although we look at the IOWA Test as just one of many diagnostic measurements throughout our year,” says Horizon Prep Interim Vice Principal Holly Morey, “these results are clearly a testament to the care, concern and competency of our qualified teachers.” “To have validation of our academic quality at the same time we’re growing,” says Kush, “shows we’re upholding academic excellence as we grow. It is, in fact, one of the many reasons our enrollment growth is an anomaly in this economy.” For more information, visit

The Birds, The Bees and Blended Families

Why do married men cheat? Dear Dr. Diana, I read your article about cheating last week. Why do married men say they want to meet someone? I’ve been with a married man for two years now only because he is the someone that I have always wanted. He told me he was falling in love with me and then after 16 months I asked do you love me and he said, "I CAN'T" What does that mean? I’m thinking about moving away to get out of the situation. If men say they are unhappy why don’t they leave? — The other woman

Dear Other Woman, Rather than write a discourse on why married men cheat, let’s turn it around. Why would a woman knowDiana Weissingly date a married man who is still livWisdom, Ph.D. ing with his wife? What is going on with you? I can tell you that some women say that it’s fun and exciting without being confining. Often no one anticipates that it will get serious. And hey, there is nothing to be afraid of because after all he’s married. But I wonder if a woman who gets involved with married men has never had an experience of being able to count on a solid, safe connection with a man — let alone a romantic partner. Deep down, she doesn’t trust that a man will stick around and be committed to her anyway, so she gets to have a relationship without getting her hopes up. But in the end, when an attachment develops, she gets hurt anyway. Your reasons may be different but it’s hard to believe that it’s merely that “he is the someone that you’ve always wanted.” With so many fish in the sea, there must be more to it than that. With some earnest soul searching, you’ll likely discover that your true answer lies within you. Now, back to your original question, why do men cheat? There are varying opinions regarding this question. Some

anthropologists say that men crave sexual variety. Others dispute this using the argument that more men are monogamous than not. One anthropologist suggests that romantic love, attachment, and sex drive are not always in the same area of the brain, making it easy for some folks to compartmentalize different relationships. I think that most often people are longing to feel connected and appreciated. Sometimes, that’s easier to come by in the early limerence stage of a relationship, when it’s fresh and unencumbered by complicated history or the daily grind. Also, couples may not know how to make their relationship work and feel angry, lonely and afraid of true intimacy. Most of the time, people who have affairs are looking to have some unmet need met. They aren’t usually looking to leave their marriage. For the married or for the unwed, most people agree that having an affair rarely turns out to be a good solution to one’s unhappiness.

Old Globe presents Miller classic ‘Death of a Salesman’ By Diana Saenger Contributor If Arthur Miller were alive today he would probably be amused to find two degrees of separation between his Willy Loman character and a killer of zombies. That’s because playing the lead in the Globe's revival of “Death of a Salesman” is Jeffrey DeMunn, who stars in AMC’s hit television series “The Walking Dead.” “Death of a Salesman,” directed by Pam MacKinnon (an Obie and Lilly Award winning New York-based director) and winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, runs in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theater Jan. 22-Feb. 27. DeMunn played the role of Willy last year at the Dallas Theater Center and admits he rarely repeats a production. “But in terms of the man and the world he lived at the moment, I knew there was much more I had to learn. So when the opportunity came up, I said yes.” There’s a reason “Death of a Salesman” continues to be produced around the country, The story of Willy’s misunderstanding of himself throughout his career as a traveling salesman and how he eventually realizes The American Dream has passed him by – is still both poignant and relevant. “There’s no question that could be said about any well-drawn character in a book or play,” DeMunn said. “Willy is sewn into the fabric of all of our lives, and if that was not so, the play would not be as wonderful, artful or meaningful as it is, mostly because it’s done by Arthur Miller.” With DeMunn’s impressive resume of nearly 35 years of acting; it’s apparent he could fill any shoes. Called a favorite of writer/producer/director Frank Darabont, DeMunn appeared in “The Shawshank Redemption,” “The Green Mile,” “The Majestic,” Stephen King's “The Mist,” the 1988 remake of “The

KATARZYNA WORONOWICZ) Blob” and the “The Walking Dead.” Other vast film credits include “Burn After Reading,” “Cayman Went,” “Hollywoodland,” “The X-Files Movie,” “Phenomenon” and “Blaze.” His award-winning TV credits are many. On stage DeMunn’s Broadway credits include “Our Town,” “The Price,” “Bent,” “Spoils of War,” “Sleight of Hand” and “K2” for which he was nominated for a Tony. He also enjoys many off-Broadway credits. The characters he picks to play are quite diverse, but DeMunn said he has no particular method for getting into character – as a salesman or even a killer. “I often do research or look at footage, but sometimes that may not be appropriate if the script is a little different,” he said. “I just try to see what this human is about, stay as nimble as I can, and always try to tell the truth. ‘The Walking Dead’ was a complete surprise. When I got a call from Frank asking me to come to Atlanta and kill zombies, I said yes without knowing anything about it.” The “Salesman” cast includes: Jordan Baker, Ben Diskant, Jesse Jensen, Robin Moseley, Tyler Pierce, John Procaccino, Deborah Radloff, Lucas Caleb Rooney, Ryman Sneed, Adrian Sparks and Jonathan Spivey. The creative team features Marion Williams (scenic design), Mathew LeFebvre (costume design), Rui Rita (lighting design), Jeremy J. Lee (sound design) and Lavinia Henley (stage manager).

Perspectives at Moonlight Beach offers variety of artisan pieces Morgan Stanley Smith Barney financial advisors form The Allen/Monteath Group By Karen Billing In Perspectives at Moonlight Beach, every item has a story behind it. There are necklaces made with antique perfume buttons that are more than 100 years old. Back when perfume was oil based, women would wear their fragrance on their buttons, owner Debra Skinner explains. In war time, it became a tradition for the women to pin their buttons to the inside of their departing soldier’s shirt, so he could keep the scent of his loved one close. The shop’s silken yoga bags are made from recycled saris, from an organization that teaches Indian women to sew, creating sustainable incomes to remove them from a life of domestic abuse. And the stylish leatherlooking bags with the modern grommet details? Not leather, but vegan, actually. Skinner opened Perspectives in fall 2010 in The Lofts on Highway 101 in Encinitas. The store offers unique finds from her endless “wander looks” for artisans who offer one of a kind, high-

quality pieces. “This is just a new adventure for me,” said Skinner. “It’s really exciting to bring something new to the community.” Although many pieces in the store are one-of-a-kind, not all come with one-of-akind price tags. “I try to make sure there’s a little bit of everything for everyone,” said Skinner. “I’ve already had people come back and tell me I’ve become their go-to shop and I love that.” Perspectives is Skinner’s first retail shop. She is an artisan herself, whose studio had always been her dining room table. “I’m a creative person in my own right,” Skinner said. “The store was about getting my studio off the dining room table, inviting other artisans to celebrate their stories and their craft.” With Valentine’s Day in mind, Skinner says many of her items would make great gifts. Very popular are the “spirit tiles,” an incredible unique line of pieces made of molten glass on copper, free

standing or ready to hang on the wall. Bright images on the front correspond with quotes written around the edges—one reads: “If raindrops were kisses I’d send you a shower,” matching the umbrella toting girl on the tile. “This particular artisan (Houston Llew of Georgia) has been very well received,” said Skinner. “I love it when an artisan will give me an exclusive.” She also loves a collection of tiny, sterling silver bells with delicately intricate engravings. The bells can serve as a pendant for a necklace—she sells silver and leather Debra Skinner opened Perspectives at Moonlight Beach last year. chains. Every purchase leaves the store in a bag that makes it look like a present. “I want it to feel like shopping at Perspectives is a special and unique experience,” Skinner said. Anyone who brings this article into Perspectives will get 25 percent off a single item. Visit the store at 90 N. Pacific Coast Highway 101 in the Lofts, suite 213. For more information, call (614) 657-3032.

The letters will be part of a packing project for the Forgotten Soldiers Outreach on February 1. Cards and letters can be mailed to the RSF Community Center (PO Box 1834, RSF, CA 92067), delivered to the Community Center, or brought to the RSF Post Office on Jan. 21, 3-6 p.m. There will also be stationary available on Jan. 21 at the post office table, Jan. 21, 3-6 p.m. Send all letters to Diana Burdick They must be received by Jan. 24. Thank you for sharing the love of our great country! Preparing a Feast at Bread of Life Rescue Mission On the evening of Saturday Jan. 8, the Sycamore Ridge Kids Korps Chapter prepared a feast for the 140 patrons of the Bread of Life Rescue Mission on Oceanside. They baked pasta and provided salad, fruit cookies and water for the group and all the

kids were busy serving the needy. Kids Korps member Barrett Goldman (8) said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep it coming guys, they really like this stuff!â&#x20AC;? Many of the visitors were able to have two plates of food and said that seeing the smiling faces of the kids was the best part of the evening. Kid Korps Hand Made Blankets Keep Children Warm in Mexico Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Club members traveled to Rosarito, Mexico, on a recent cold, over cast Saturday in January, to distribute blankets and food to the poorest of the poor. Of the 900 blankets given out, 250 were made by Kids Korps volunteers. These beautiful handmade no-sew polar fleece blankets were a huge hit with so many children in the hills of Tijuana. These much needed blankets, 3,200 pounds of food and bags of toys were distributed to very needy families.

Volunteers drove miles back into the hills of Rosarito, way off the beaten path to several rustic schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The need there is overwhelming and we could not begin to cover everyone who needed these basic supplies,â&#x20AC;? said Robin Chappelow, Kids Korps Program Director and Rotary member. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some walked for miles just to get there, only to find out we had run out of supplies. The poverty and desperate need is hard to imagine. Just cross the border and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everywhere.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an amazing experience and such a memorable day for all of us. Seeing the faces of these mothers, who just wanted food and a warm blanket for their children was heart wrenching. I won't ever forget this day! The parents were so appreciative and now know that others out there care about them.â&#x20AC;? Thank you to the many Kids Korps volunteers who worked hard to make these colorful and warm, snuggly blankets. They are doing their job, keeping small children warm.

to attend the monthly meetings. For almost every meeting there is a lesson and a speaker. Whether the lesson was on how to reach out to different parts of a community or how to be an effective leader, the lessons are always very powerful and helpful and are paired with a speaker that hits the message straight home. The meeting was just starting and everyone sat in their chairs and got comfortable. This was going to be a long hour and a half. A man was already waiting in our meeting room; he was going to be our speaker for tonight. He stood up and walked to the front of the room introducing himself as Don Sando. Tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lesson was on team building and our strengths and weaknesses as a leader. Mr. Sando started off with a power point presentation that showed us graphs on the relationship between good morales (people having confi-

dence in you and being liked) and strong results as the leader of your team. He also had other graphs on similar topics. All of his information and results were actually from real companies and organizations that had experienced good leadership and bad leadership. Finally, Mr. Sando talked about the four characteristics that make a high achieving leader. You need to make sure that you listen to your teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggestions and ideas and have positive feelings toward your team. This will lead your actions towards your team to also be positive. We also learned the importance of involving everyone in decisions. Last but not least, he taught the importance of being motivated not for selfish reasons of self gain or wanting to be liked, but because you enjoy sharing power and want to do whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for your team.

steps to leadership improvement. First you need to assess what the problem is, then learn how to fix it. After learning how to fix the problem you can continue to adjust by experimentation and observation. The last step is to simply practice this new method of leadership and master it. The result will be a stronger more efficient team. A favorite quote of Mr. Sando was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care what you know unless they know that you care.â&#x20AC;? With that last thought in mind, I hope to become a more effective and stronger leader and am very thankful that I had the experience to learn from Mr. Sando. Santa â&#x20AC;&#x153;Causeâ&#x20AC;? Village By Miranda Reisman, 7th grader at Carmel Valley Middle School In December, Carmel Valley Middle School Teen Korps members joined several other Kid Korps chapters at the Flower Hill Mall for the Santa â&#x20AC;&#x153;Causeâ&#x20AC;? Village project. The groups collected books to donate to needy families, collected electronics to be recycled, and sold baked goods and hand-made crafts including ornaments made with recycled Christmas cards by members of Teen Korps. However, one of the most popular activities that day took place in the parking lot where kids were able to help build and paint a tree house that was auctioned off for Fuller Center for Housing.

from Bilbray, Issa and Kyl. “Instead of taking up a lot of time trying to explain my personal agenda, I felt it would be more powerful to provide ‘letters of experience’ from agents and homeowners who have been dealing with the inefficient handling of short sales and loan modifications,” said Rogers. “I provided everyone I met with a personalized folder full of these letters to encourage them to take this problem seriously. I am still requesting that agents and clients share their experiences with me, so I can continue to forward them to these representatives, as well as members of the House Financial Services Committee.” Rogers specializes in the purchase and sale of residential real estate, fine homes, investment properties, and acreage throughout Coastal North County, La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe. Her comprehensive understanding of these unique areas, coupled with her extensive knowledge of local home values and economic conditions has ranked her in the upper echelons of the national real estate market for the majority of her career. “My philosophy has always been consistent,” explained Rogers, who is known for her business sense and dedication to her clients: “The best interests and priorities of my clients come first and foremost in my professional representation of their needs.” Polly Rogers can be reached in Prudential California Realty’s Rancho Santa Fe office on her direct line at (858) 774 – 2505.

Prudential California Realty Broker Associate Polly Rogers recently traveled to Washington D.C. to speak with a number of Congressional representatives about the challenges disPolly Rogers tressed homeowners are currently facing in working with the lending industry. Based out of Prudential’s Rancho Santa Fe office, Rogers is a 34-year industry veteran and a Coronado native. “I wanted to raise awareness about the lending industry’s lack of assistance to homeowners in relation to loan modifications, and their lack of accountability in the negotiation of many short sales,” said Rogers. “The hardships that consumers experience during the processing of loan modifications and short sales are a legitimate tragedy in our present economic reality. I feel it is my duty, as a broker who represents homeowners, to bring a greater awareness to the difficulties they are facing with the lending industry.” Rogers met with congressional representatives from four states, had lunch with Senator John Kyl of Arizona, and established new contacts with three local representatives, Brian Bilbray, Duncan Hunter and Darrel Issa. Since returning home, the “letters of experience” she shared with all of the representatives have resulted in follow-ups
