Event to honor SB government pioneers BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

A little over 25 years ago, Gloria Curry played an integral role in starting the city of Solana Beach from scratch. As the city’s first interim city manager, she did everything from hiring city staff to executing contracts to running the office (which, at that time, was only two rooms with one phone). “Everybody on the first council

will tell you she came in with city manager experience and she really made a difference. There was no structure at all and she made things happen, things as basic as setting up an office,” said Ruby Edman of the Solana Beach Civic and Historical Society, which is hosting an event on Feb. 13 to honor Solana Beach government “pioneers” like Curry

Irrigation district supports water authority’s lawsuit against Metropolitan Water District BY JOE TASH Santa Fe Irrigation District directors voted Thursday, Jan. 19, to support a lawsuit against the agency that supplies water to millions of Southern California residents, contending the water wholesaler’s pricing structure is unfair to San Diego County. The irrigation district’s board of directors voted unanimously to support the lawsuit filed in 2010 by the San Diego County Water Authority against the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. At issue is a complex formula for how the giant water agency — which serves an area of 5,200 square miles in six counties, with 19 million residents — charges for transporting water through its pipelines from the Imperial Valley to San Diego County. Dennis Cushman, the county water authority’s general manager, told the irrigation district board that between $1.3 billion and $2.1 billion in disputed

charges by Metropolitan is at stake for San Diego County residents over the next 45 years. “This is the battle of a lifetime, of a generation… and we’re asking you to stand with us,” Cushman said. Metropolitan is a consortium of 26 cities and water districts that provides water to parts of Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties. The San Diego County Water Authority buys water from Metropolitan, and also uses Met’s pipelines to transport water that it purchases from the Imperial Irrigation District. The county water authority itself is composed of 24 member agencies, including the Santa Fe Irrigation District, other water districts and local cities. The San Diego County Water Authority is the largest single source of revenue for Metropolitan, accounting for more than 25 perSee WATER, page 6

Condoleezza Rice visits, offers inspiration to Bishop’s students

Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice accepts the Bishop’s Medal from Head of School Aimeclaire Roche during a presentation at the Bishop’s School, Jan. 19, 2012. Photo/Pat Sherman Following her presentation, Rice fielded questions from students. Sophomore Alejandra Gallegos asked Rice for her definition of success. “Financial success can go away just like that,” Rice cautioned. “To me the most successful people are people who find meaning in their lives. They believe that they are having an impact on issues or causes that they care about.” Seventh-grader Andres Worstell asked, “How do you argue against a president when you disagree with their action, statement or decision?” Rice said the key is to have an “open and honest” relationship with the president. “If the president ultimately disagrees with you and takes another course, if it is something that somehow violates your values, then you have one

choice, which is to resign,” she said. “Then you can say whatever you want. “I never faced that situation with President Bush. I never felt that a decision — if it was a decision that I didn’t agree with — had violated my principles.” In regard to the Bush Administration’s decision to enter into war with Iraq, sophomore Hanna Bourne asked, “Knowing what you know now, is there anything you would have done differently?” Rice answered, “Where we really didn’t succeed was in quelling the violence in Iraq among the insurgents. We probably didn’t have enough troops on the ground. ... We put too much focus on Baghdad, and not enough focus on what was a very big country. Yes, there are several things that I would do differently, but the one thing I would not do differently? I would not leave Saddam Hussein in power.” Freshman Adeline Shin asked what it was like to experience the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 as a member of the Bush Administration. Rice said the worst moment of that day was “15 awful minutes” in which she and other White House officials believed that the Pentagon had ordered the military to shoot down United Airlines Flight 93, which she said they later learned had been “driven into the ground by passengers to prevent another attack.” “What happens to you if you’re in a position of authority on that day is you resolve that can never let it happen again,” Rice said. “I’ve often said that after September 11, every day after that was September 12.” Following the presentation, Rice lunched with eight people who won the honor through a school auction. “Collectively, the people who bought this opportunity raised the equivalent of two full scholarships to Bishop’s,” said the school’s director of marketing and communications, Suzanne Weiner. “It goes to our financial aid program, which speaks to Condoleezza’s passion for children and education.”

BY PAT SHERMAN Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice offered words of inspiration and encouragement to students at the Bishop’s School on Jan. 19, urging them to follow their passion and make the most of their education. Rice addressed students during the school’s Endowed Leadership Lecture Series assembly. The annual event brings to the school individuals whose leadership achievements make them role models for Bishop’s students. Prior to the presentation, Rice was awarded the Bishop’s Medal — the school’s highest honor. During her address, Rice encouraged students not to coast along with a sense of entitlement. “There are many, many people just as smart, just as intelligent, just as capable, who will never get the chances and the opportunities that you’re getting,” she said. “It’s a privilege to get a great education. Never take it for granted.” Rice spoke of her youthful ambition to become a concert pianist, a dream she abandoned in college after attending the Aspen Music Festival and School training camp, where she discovered there were students more advanced than she. “I thought, uh-oh. … I’m about to end up teaching 13-year-olds … or maybe I’m going to play piano bars or at Nordstrom,” she quipped. As a student at the University of Denver, Rice took a course in international politics and became smitten with Russia. “There was no Earthly reason that a black girl from Birmingham, Alabama ought to want to be a Soviet specialist,” she said. “It was just what I was passionate about. … Don’t let somebody else define your passion by your gender or your race or where you come from.” In order to be on top of their game, Rice advised students not to burn the candle at both ends, taking time to get rest and exercise. “When I was the Secretary of State … I told my staff, ‘You do not want me making decisions on behalf of the United States of America on four hours sleep,’” she said. “Take care of yourself now. Your body will take care of you when you are older.”

‘Rattlesnake’ view platform on the Del Dios Gorge Trail complete The San Dieguito River Park recently announced that the “Rattlesnake” view platform on the Del Dios Gorge Trail has been completed. This project was to construct a viewing platform on the Del Dios Gorge Trail with views of the Lake Hodges Dam and the San Dieguito River down below in the gorge. The viewing platform was funded by the River Parkway (Proposition 84) grant funds from the State Resources Agency and constructed by architect Scott Stevenson. The grant is also funding a major eucalyptus removal and replanting with native sycamores and cottonwoods in Del Dios Gorge and trail improvements, including several covered picnic tables and benches. Dick Bobertz, executive director noted that “The project is one of the largest habitat restoration projects currently under way in Southern California.” The viewing platform is for trail users to sit and enjoy the views of the dam and the river below. It is called the “Rattlesnake” view platform because it is made from native rock in the shape of a rattlesnake. An interpretive panel explains the place of rattlesnakes in our ecosystem. Another feature is a burned and dead tree, which provides information about the impacts of wildfires.

The “Rattlesnake” view platform on the Del Dios Gorge Trail has been completed. In the center of the view platform sculpture (at the apex of the snake’s tail) is a pipe scope through which one can look and line up with another feature, marked A, B or C, which point one’s view toward a particular sight, the spillway, the bullwarks of the dam, and the river below. The viewing platform is located just south of Del Dios Highway, downstream of Lake Hodges Dam. Please note that the view platform is only accessible from the trail, and requires a two-mile walk or ride on the trail before it can be reached.

Local student brings music to underprivileged students Spencer Wong, a junior at Santa Fe Christian High School, heard the call one day when he read in the newspaper that the music programs have been cut from public elementary schools due to California school budget cuts. Spencer, an advanced clarinet and saxophone player, is the lead clarinetist of his school band and has been a member of the band since 4th grade. Under the direction of Mr. David Hall, SFC’s band director, Spencer is the steady force in the school’s Eagle marching band, Pep band, and Concert band. Realizing that he is fortunate enough to have his own instruments and the benefit of weekly private music lessons, Spencer decided to do something to give back to the community. Spencer contacted the Education and Community Program Manager of the Community Opus Project, Lauren Widney, and offered to volunteer his time to give free music lessons to the underprivileged, lowincome students in various elementary schools in Chula Vista. The Community Opus Project is launched by the San Diego Youth Symphony with the goal of bridging the gap between those who have access to music education and those who will have to see their musical aspirations unfulfilled. Spencer visited Rosebank Elementary School in Chula Vista and impressed the young 4th-6th grades with a piece from Concerto for clarinet No.3 by Carl Stamitz. Spencer was thrilled that more hands went up wanting to play the clarinet after his per-

Spencer will be visiting various elementary schools in Chula Vista to provide weekly music lessons to bring music back to the classrooms. He is hoping that someday there will be enough state funding to the public schools so the music programs can be revived and the dreams of becoming musicians in these young people can be fulfilled.

continued from page 2 Macy said. Even after closing her salon, Kinzel tended to the hair and beauty needs of many of her neighbors. She worked for a time in the salon owned by another neighbor, Marie Gilbert, who said they were among the “oldtimers” of Solana Beach. Her friend loved to walk, sometimes alone, sometimes with friends, Gilbert said. Until two years ago, Kinzel walked three miles a day and swam regularly at the Sand Pebbles Resort “where everyone knew her,” Brunell said. After that, she still walked, although she cut the route to about a mile, Macy added. She also “stayed connected with the Solana Beach gang,” Brunnelll noted, often dining with them at Tony’s Jacal. She

was involved with the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church and the Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce. A graduate of San Dieguito High School, she was named the most beautiful girl in her class. Someone from Life magazine spotted a photo of her, Brunnell recalled. “They came and took photos of her and put her on the cover.” People often said she looked like Jackie Kennedy Onassis, she added. As a young woman, she was one of the first “cigarette girls” at the Del Mar racetrack, Macy added. Kinzel is survived by her two daughters and five grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband and son George. A memorial gathering was held Jan. 22 at the Kinzel home.

Twelve former and current civic leaders, many from the first city council, will be honored at the lunch event, which will take place at the Belly Up from noon to 2 p.m. There will also be a memorial recognition for Jack Moore, the financial analyst who garnered the confidence of the community in the mid-1980s by showing the public Solana Beach could sustain itself financially.

Diego and several other local water agencies have done so. The vote by the Santa Fe Irrigation District board will not cost the district additional money, because it is already helping to pay for the litigation as a member agency of the county water authority, Cushman said. Along with passing a resolution in support of the lawsuit, the county water authority is asking its member agencies to testify at Metropolitan’s rate-setting hearing on March 12, publish commentaries and letters to the editor supporting the water authority’s position, and feature the litigation in agency publications, on websites and in social media comments. A number of Metropolitan’s member agencies have sided with Met on the lawsuit, said Cushman,

which he attributed to their desire to continue to have San Diego County residents subsidize their water costs “to the tune of tens of millions of dollars per year.” “They want to preserve the status quo. Why? Because it works very well for them,” Cushman said. After listening to Cushman’s presentation, the Santa Fe board voted to support the water authority lawsuit with little discussion. The irrigation district purchases about 60 percent of the water it supplies to customers from the county water authority. Cushman said the improper charges by Metropolitan are one factor in a series of steep rate increases imposed on San Diego County water customers in recent years. On its website, Metropolitan contends that the

San Diego County Water Authority is seeking to avoid paying its fair share of the costs of transporting water from Imperial Valley to San Diego County. “SDCWA’s lawsuit seeks to avoid paying its share of maintaining this transportation system – at the expense of the system’s other users,” said a statement about the lawsuit on Metropolitan’s website. “Outside of San Diego, there is overwhelming support for Metropolitan’s current rate structure which reflects an equitable and regional approach,” concluded the statement. The lawsuit will be heard by a San Francisco Superior Court judge, and a decision by the trial court is expected by the end of this year. Cushman said an appeal of the verdict is likely, no matter which side wins at the trial court level.

campaign for Solana Beach to become a city. This is the fourth Valentine Venture event, a tradition that was started by the Civic and Historical Society to recognize the people who made Solana Beach what it is today and sustain those legacies. The first three recognition events honored business community leaders from the Cedros Design District, La Colonia de Eden Gardens, and Highway 101. Edman, who has been a resident of Solana Beach since its beginnings, wanted to honor city government pioneers this year because she said the theme fits perfectly with the city’s 25-year anniversary. “All of the people being recognized had a specific job and made a very clear and observable contribution,” said Edman, who chose the honorees with the help of Margaret

Schlesinger, the city’s first mayor. “What we are doing is helping to remember our heritage and that people had to make contributions early on to be what we are today,” Edman said. She added that the event coincides with Valentine’s Day because “if we are giving a tribute, recognizing people who have given a contribution, it’s like we are giving them a valentine and saying ‘We appreciate you.’” Honorees include Solana Beach mayor Joe Kellejian, who was one of the first Town Council members prior to Solana Beach becoming a city. “He’s a good representation of an early civic leader,” Edman said. Also being honored are City Councilman Tom Campbell, who was a liaison to the Chamber of Commerce; Mike Huse, the

city’s first permanent city manager; and several members of the first Solana Beach City Council: Marion Dodson, Celine Olson, Richard Hendlin and Margaret Schlesinger. Jack Peek, who was co-chair of the General Plan Committee, will also be recognized, along with several former members of CITI: Gail Paparian, Michael Newhouse and Sandy Parish. The presenter for the event will be Deputy Mayor Dave Roberts. To attend Valentine Venture at the Belly Up, 143 S.

molished. It was not until a few months ago that Baker Iron Works, the oldest running business in Solana Beach, donated its time and energy to restore and redesign the bell tower and cross. Susie Bruun of the family-owned iron shop said the steel used in the project is worth about $9,000 alone — not including the six-foot-tall, three-dimensional steel

cross that will adorn the top of the tower. “You just do it because it’s a part of you,” said Bruun, a longtime member of the parish. “There would never be any question that we wouldn’t do something like this.” Bruun’s family bought the steel business in the 1920s and it is still going strong — just like the steel it produces. Not only will the St. Leo bell tower nev-

er again fall due to termites, but it was finished in such way that rust will never be an ailment. Victor Tostado, a longtime parishioner, said the bell “has been silent too long.” “The bell will again become a significant and integral part of the spiritual life of the community,” he said.

858 Tea Party comes Becker’s Hospital Review names local resident Van to local communities Gorder among most powerful people in health care •First public meeting to be held Jan. 31 BY JOE TASH Graham Ledger is convinced the United States is moving away from its founding Constitutional principles, and individual rights and liberties are under fire. But it was thinking about the future of his teenage daughter that spurred him to action. Concerned the country was headed toward fiscal disaster, he decided, “I couldn’t live with myself, knowing that I didn’t at least lift a finger to try and prevent that from happening.” So late last year, he began to organize the 858 Tea Party, the newest entry onto San Diego County’s political stage. Ledger, a resident of coastal North County, said the county already had Tea Party groups in central San Diego, East County and North County. But no similar group existed for Solana Beach, La Jolla, Del Mar east, Mira Mesa, Rancho Santa Fe, and other communities in the 858 area code. “It got my mind working, if there is a gap, maybe I can help fill it,” said Ledger, who is well-known to many San Diegans as an anchor for 14 years on KFMB Channel 8’s news broadcasts. He now anchors a news program on the San Diegobased Wealth TV cable network. The demand for a new Tea Party group in the 858 area code will become more apparent on Tuesday, Jan. 31, when the group holds its first public meeting at Chevys restaurant, 2730 Via De La Valle in Del Mar. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m., and candidates for local, state and federal offices have been invited to speak to the group. According to Ledger and other supporters of the Tea Party movement, the key issues include government spending and the mandate to buy health insurance contained in the new federal healthcare reform law. “Most people who study the Constitution find nowhere in that document that the federal government has the authority to compel an American citizen to enter into a private transaction,” Ledger said. “That one seems to have galvanized millions of Americans around what has gone wrong with the U.S. government.” Craig Wood, a Carmel Valley resident who works as a software and technology consultant, said he has known Ledger for several years, and shares many of

his concerns. Wood said he considers himself a fiscal conservative, a supporter of a small, limited government and of a strong national defense. He advocates cuts in government spending and regulation of businesses to spur economic growth. “The best way to create jobs is to create entrepreneurship. Allow people to go out there and set up businesses. Take the yoke off and let them go. Be pro-business,” he said. “Let the people go, let them be who they are.” Maggie Acerra, an organizer of the San Diego County Tea Party Forum, a website and related Facebook page for Tea Party enthusiasts, said the creation of a new Tea Party group for the 858 area code is a positive step, because it offers another place for people to connect and debate issues. “We have Independents and Libertarians and Republicans and some Democrats in there. We’re all individuals, we all have our own thoughts and opinions. That’s why the debate part of it is so important,” she said. “This isn’t about combat. We’re all trying to find a way to put the country on the right track,” she said. Tea Party activists saw a similar sentiment arise at the very beginning of the Occupy Wall Street movement last year, Acerra said. “Their instincts were telling them something was very wrong with this country just like we had felt.” Occupiers and Tea Partiers disagree on the source of the problem, according to Acerra, with Occupiers believing that government and more spending offer the best solution. Del Mar resident John Stahl, who is running against incumbent Congressman Brian Bilbray in the newly reconfigured 52nd District — a race that also includes Democrats Scott Peters and Lori Saldana — said he gravitated toward the Tea Party because it offered him a venue to express his conservative message of Judeo-Christian principles, the Constitution and common sense. A friend of Ledger’s. Stahl said he plans to speak at next week’s 858 Tea Party meeting. “I’m running as a Republican and they won’t let me speak at their meetings. I need another avenue to get my message out,” Stahl said. For more information about the 858 Tea Party, visit

Becker’s Hospital Review has named Scripps Health’s President and CEO Chris Van Gorder one of the 40 of the most powerful people in health care in its January-February edition. This list recognizes leaders who have shaped the health care industry with their policy work, clinical research, company leadership and commentary, among other contributions. This recognition follows Van Gorder’s listing as No. 18 on Modern Healthcare’s annual ranking of the nation’s 100 Most Influen-

tial People in Healthcare, published last year. “As president and CEO of San Diego-based Scripps Chris Van Health Gorder since 2000, Chris Van Gorder has led the nonprofit health system through a series of financial and culture changes, positioning the system as one of

the nation’s leading health providers,” the Becker’s Hospital Review listing states. “When Mr. Van Gorder was appointed CEO in 1999, Scripps Health was losing $15 million a year, and the management had recently received a ‘no-confidence’ vote from its medical staff. Mr. Van Gorder responded to the crisis by implementing a physician leadership cabinet, building strategic alliances and pushing a more transparent management style. Through a joint venture with North American Medical Management California, Scripps Health recently formed an integrated delivery network with seven physician groups in San Diego County that is organized to respond to alternative care management agreements.” More information can be found at

‘Peace Week’at Del Mar Hills Del Mar Hills Academy observed a “Peace Week” during the days following Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. Each day was filled with its own activities: one day, students posed for an all-school “peace symbol” picture at lunch. On another, “I Love a Clean San Diego” came to talk with the students about ways to improve and protect the San Diego environment; kids also had the opportunity to learn how to develop flexibility and strength through yoga. On Friday, students had a ‘70s-spirit day that included a “PeaceJam,” where parents came to eat lunch on the field and grooved to music from the 1970s. A “Peace Wall” was created where students from each class wrote a message of peace. To spread “peace around the world,” the wall will be split into sections and the sections will be sent to other elementary schools in a variety of countries.

Patriot Profiles: ‘My husband’s gone. I don’t know what I’m doing – Help.’ This column presents soldier stories to provide readers insight into the lives of our country’s heroes. BY JEANNE MCKINNEY Being married to a warrior is no easy task. Beyond the military theatre or training ground is a wife managing her own battlefronts, learning and living the term “selflessness.” With her husband dedicated to a dangerous job that takes him away from family for months on end, she keeps the home fires burning, and her tears and concerns to herself. A vital ally in a career of sacrifice and service to country, she follows him around the globe – supporting the “mission.” I first heard about Mary Jean Hall and the way she spends her time when I met her husband, Lieutenant Colonel Howard F. Hall, the Commanding Officer of the 3D Assault Amphibian Battalion – 1st Marine Division. We were engaged in conversation on Red Beach, Camp Pendleton, after filming a massive launch of amphibious assault vehicles during Dawn Blitz, a ship to shore joint Marine Corps/Navy training exercise. I found it impressive while chatting with this charismatic high-ranking officer that he found his wife’s

work as important as his. Growing up in Dearborn, Michigan, MJ (as she likes to be called) graduated from Eastern Michigan University and worked her way into the world of Information Technology (IT) and mergers and acquisitions. Here, she honed project management skills she could transfer to a future role. That role would change from working with highly-trained professionals and overseeing satellite offices to working with volunteers supporting a looselyformed organization, with no budget or direction and unfulfilled needs – all within the confines of a military setting. MJ met Lieutenant Colonel Hall online, who was then a Major with an established 15-year Marine Corps career. She had to consult with a girlfriend about the rank of “Major,” asking “Is that good?” They dated briefly before he was deployed to Iraq and grew their romance through emails and internet video chat. She eventually signed up “to share every joy and hardship to an equal degree right alongside of Chip” (as she affectionately calls her husband). Lt. Col. Hall, MJ, and their daughter, Remington, arrived at Camp Pendleton in June 2011, and were challenged with a low level of family participation in the

“Gator” family fun. Photo/Shawna Lockwood

Mary Jean (MJ) and Lieutenant Colonel Howard F. Hall – Camp Pendleton seven companies that comprise the 3rd AABN. In over 1,600 Marines and 1,400 dependents, there were only six active and dedicated volunteers to carry the huge load of helping one another. “I was amazed,” recalls MJ. In addition, military rules constrained her husband’s allocation of government funds for Unit Personal and Family Readiness Programs (UP & FRP). These funds (green dollars) could only be used for battalion group events. To use such monies on individuals would be a violation and come with stiff consequences. Creative solutions were required to meet individual and family needs. Facing this pretty and blonde CO’s wife was the daunting task of

filling the gaps the battalion couldn’t. A working system was yet to be devised to help the young Marine’s wife who moves in, feeling scared, alone and unsure how to navigate through thousands of resource/instructional documents, or how to lend a hand to a family with an emergency. A way to help kids cope with the challenges of constant moves and deployments was needed, along with creating a network to connect moms learning how to be independent and fight loneliness. For this and more, MJ quit her corporate job of 24 years. “I truly am his partner in command”, MJ remarks. She and her husband decided “to bring my skill set into a setting like this and plow forward for the next two years setting policies, programs, and procedures in place that would endure long after we have gone.” MJ stepped up, ready to implement the “Left of Blast” philosophy, which is preventing an

event from happening, rather than just re-enforcing or trying to mitigate the effects of an event once it happens. Both she and her husband share this outlook with the goal of “harnessing energy and ideas correctly to create efficiency,” as explained by LtCol. Hall. With ideas and energy harnessed, this former IT whiz took charge, revamping The Spouse Club, an idea started by former CO spouse Candice McLean. “She had great foresight, but we’ve taken it 10 steps further.” MJ is clear: “The Spouse Club was developed to build a sense of belonging and camaraderie and develop assets and resources to commit to family needs through volunteering and fund raising.” Donated funds (pink dollars) can go directly to “Gator Families in Need” (The “Gator” is the mascot of their amphibious battalion). With “pink dollars” filling gaps left by spending restrictions on “green dollars,” the Halls began to effectively address both unit and individual needs across the battalion. “Within the first 90 days, volunteers increased from six to 60,” claims MJ. Also within that time, a charter and bylaws were created, a board of directors put in place, corporate-style meetings were introduced, and a website was launched dedicated to battalion families and SEE PATRIOT, PAGE 19

Biological collector uses his expertise to create a unique undersea laboratory with the remains of a dead fin whale BY ARTHUR LIGHTBOURN When a dead 67-foot fin whale recently washed up on a Point Loma beach, city authorities and lifeguards realized they had a huge problem — how to dispose of the 30-ton carcass. But Eddie Kisfaludy, 34, a former Scripps Institution of Oceanography biological collector, and SIO professor/ curator Greg Rouse saw it as a unique opportunity to create an undersea “whale fall” laboratory by sinking the remains of the whale in the ocean off La Jolla — instead of standing idly by as city crews carried out a plan to somehow haul the whale’s remains to the Miramar landfill for disposal. “Sinking a whale offshore in the ocean,” Kisfaludy said, “is the more ecological and environmentally responsible thing to do because we don’t want to fill our landfills with whale and it’s more of a natural process…We are just adding one more whale to the millions who have died and sank throughout the oceans.”

The purpose of a scientific “whale fall” operation, Kisfaludy said, was to return the whale to the sea while creating an accessible site that researchers could revisit in the months and years ahead to monitor the biology of the “whale fall” as it provides an ongoing feast for countless sea creatures and sustains a complex local undersea ecosystem. “This is the largest whale ever sunk by science,” he reckoned. “You could consider this the largest fishfeeding that man has ever done. It’s an incredible organic input to the sea floor.” The successful sinking of the fin whale climaxed a multi-agency coordinated effort by SIO, Virgin Oceanic, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and SeaWorld. We interviewed Kisfaludy mid-morning last week on the sunlit patio of Caroline’s Seaside Café on the SIO campus. While we talked, dolphins could be seen leaping just beyond the breakers. The story of the ill-fated

fin whale and its contribution to science began last November shortly before Thanksgiving when the whale’s carcass was spotted by a Coast Guard helicopter as it floated toward shore and eventually washed up in a cove just north of the Point Loma sewerage plant. Fin whales, Kisfaludy said, are much larger than the average gray whales that occasionally wash up on San Diego beaches and that are routinely transported by dump trucks for disposal in the local landfill. “But you couldn’t put a whale this size in the back of a dump truck,” he said. “You’d have to cut it up into three pieces which would have been a daunting task. The logical thing was to tow it offshore.” Kisfaludy and Greg Rouse actually devised a plan to create scientific whale falls using gray whales three years ago, but they were unable to raise funds for the project estimated at a cost of $15,000 per whale. When the fin whale washed up on shore, the Na-

tional Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration approached Kisfaludy and Rouse for help. “This was two days before Thanksgiving and everybody was on holiday,” Kisfaludy recalled. “So I got on the horn and called as many people as I could; and in six hours we had the Virgin Oceanic catamaran lined up, we located 14,000


pounds of steel that would be needed to weigh down the whale in order to sink it, and we secured the cooperation of the lifeguards and SeaWorld.” Rouse directed the overall operation for the whale fall and Kisfaludy oversaw the offshore details as operations manager. The operation was three-phased, Kisfaludy said. “First was to tow the whale 6.5 miles from Point Loma to Fiesta Island. That was the lifeguards. The second phase was to do a necropsy to determine the cause of death. That was SeaWorld and NOAA fisheries. And the third phase was to sink the whale offshore. That was me.” Kisfaludy, in his current role as San Diego-based operations manager of Richard Branson’s Virgin Oceanic company, arranged for Virgin Oceanic’s 125-foot ultracatamaran to be dispatched from Newport Harbor to tow the whale from Fiesta Island to the selected burial site 12 nautical miles off La Jolla. The necropsy deter-

mined that the fin whale was a pregnant female that died after she was struck by a ship. Numerous fractured vertebrae and large areas of hemorrhage indicated that the whale was alive when she was struck. Fin whales are considered the “greyhounds of the sea” because of their aerodynamic lines and their dangerous habit of racing in front of the bows of large ships. “This particular fin whale might have been doing just that when she was struck or she may have been on the surface because she was experiencing trouble due to her pregnancy,” Kisfaludy ventured. The whale was buried at sea on the morning of Nov. 25. It took 3,000 pounds of large shackles, 1,000 pounds of large ship chain and 10,200 pounds of rusty steel mooring — totaling more than 14,000 pounds, attached to the whale’s flippers, to sink it 850 meters to

Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary helps Why copper socks can be beneficial for your health women in need through ‘Dress for Success’ BY JAN PARSONS, DMSB PUBLIC RELATIONS Members of the wonderful Del Mar – Solana Beach (DMSB) Rotary Club helped Sylvia McKinney, director of Dress for Success, San Diego, make this year’s suit drive one of the most successful ever. Rotarians rounded up over four car-loads of dress suits and shoes (over 200 suits and 100 shoes) to help economically disadvantaged women as they go out to acquire jobs, build careers, and improve the quality of life for their children and families. Dress for Success San Diego has served more than 6,400 local women since 1998, referred from over 60 local human service agencies and job-readiness programs. This was the first time the club has worked with this organization, but it will not be the last. Vicky Mallet, Vocational & New Generations chair for DMSB Rotary, organized the drive for us along with Radia Bencheikh. We were also given the opportunity to tour their warmly decorated, private boutique in the San Diego Justice Center downtown. Racks of beautiful, clean suits, boxes of shoes, and displays of accessories await the women as they come in to pick their attire for their first interview. We felt proud to be part of such a wonderful organization where volunteers gently guide the client through the clothing selection process, making recommendations while nurturing self-esteem, and counseling her on workplace protocol and expectations.

The ancient Greeks were the first to discover the disinfecting power of copper thousands of years ago. Since then, copper has been used worldwide to help eliminate the growth of bacteria and fungi in the treatment of ulcers and skin diseases among other uses. In 2008 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved copper as the only metal in the world recognized to help prevent pathogens. Tests performed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) show that 99.9 percent of disease-causing bacteria and viruses are eliminated within two hours on surfaces made of copper or its alloys. Uses of copper in the textile industry Thanks to Dr. Jeffrey Gabbay, copper benefits can now be transferred to clothing and fabrics. Dr. Gabbay spent months researching how to eliminate fungi and bacteria in Israeli army tents and discovered that incorporating a percentage of copper in the tent fabric solved this issue. This patented fiber with copper is poised to change the textile industry. One such product that has been the focus in recent news is copper socks due not only to their anti-bacterial properties, but also to its contribution in improving skin tone and helping wounds heal. What makes copper socks so special? Copper socks are the first pair of socks in the market that deliver real benefits and protection to your feet. Beyond the basic functions of normal socks, copper socks stimulate the production of capillaries, collagen and other key proteins producing healthier, softer skin. Additionally, thanks to the antimicrobial properties of copper, it protects your feet against fungi and bacteria keeping your feet healthy and odor-free. Results are visible by wearing the socks daily after an average of 20 days. The protection of the fiber begins to

work on first contact with the body, and the regenerative, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties remain wash after wash. In August 2010, the 33 To place your order for Chilean copper socks, visit www. miners that were trapped 2,362 ft. below ground for 70 days were given copper socks among other emergency provisions. The socks were used by the miners in order to eliminate bacteria and fungi with very successful results. Who should use copper socks? Copper socks are recommended for people who want soft feet free of calluses. They are particularly recommended for those who have blisters or any foot injuries since they help promote wound healing, which is especially beneficial for people with diabetes. Finally, they are recommended for anyone who want to protect their feet from fungi or for those with Athlete’s foot. In treating Athlete’s foot, fungi typically go away after 20 days of wearing the socks daily. Who would have thought that wearing socks with copper could be so beneficial for your wellness, beauty and health? For more information or to place your order, please visit

the sea floor. “We chose that depth,” Kisfaludy explained, “because we wanted to put it deep enough where it would be interesting biologically, but shallow enough to where the Scripps’ remotely operated vehicle (ROV) could access it.” Kisfaludy was raised in Pacific Beach a couple of blocks from Mission Bay. His father, an auto mechanic, now retired, specialized in European cars. “My father emigrated from Hungary to New York with his family aboard a refugee ship when he was 10.” Kisfaludy’s mother is a dental hygienist. Asked what attracted him to a career in marine biology, he said, “That’s easy. All my time when I wasn’t in school, I spent at the beach, snorkeling or spear-fishing or jumping off cliffs or doing something in the ocean.” While attending Mission Bay High School, he realized eventually he would have to get a job, “but I wanted to do what I was doing for fun.” “The difficult part was to figure out how you get paid for having fun. I went over to the Birch Aquarium at Scripps. I thought it would be fun to be a diver in their kelp tank and get paid to do that. Turns out they only gave volunteers the opportunity to do that.” So he volunteered and kept at it while studying for his degree in biology at SDSU. Then when the marine collector at Scripps needed


January 26, 2012 help acquiring living specimens in support the research and educational requests of faculty, staff and students at SIO, Kisfaludy was offered the position, again as a volunteer. He took it, without hesitation. “It was a dream come true,” he said. “So I started working with my predecessor. I was at Scripps two to three days a week. It was hard to keep my grades up at SDSU. But that’s what I did. Then after about four years volunteering with him, when my predecessor retired, I was graduating at the same time, and, for some strange reason, Scripps wanted me to do his job.” One of his heroes and an inspiration during his career at Scripps, he said, was biologist/collector Ed Ricketts, a friend of novelist John Steinbeck, who was featured in Steinbeck’s nonfiction book “The Log from the Sea of Cortez,” and who served as the model for the fictional character of “Doc” in Steinbeck’s classic novel, Cannery Row. Kisfaludy was employed at SIO for 10 years as a biological collector, marine technician, experimental aquarium manager, animal welfare curator, and boating safety manager and pilot. As a “jack of all seas,” at Scripps, he logged more than 2,000 days at sea and led 800 oceanographic excursions around the world. He even had a new species of salt-water rotifer, a near-microscopic multicellular parasitic scavenger, named after him, Paraseison kisfaludyi. Rotifers are important participants in aquatic food

chain, consuming various microorganisms and detritus, and, in turn, being eaten by tiny crustaceans. Kisfaludy’s parasitic species of rotifer was found feeding on the gills of shrimp-like Nebalia crustaceans that he collected for an SIO class during an 80-foot scuba dive into an area of dead sea grass a mile off of Scripps pier. “It was quite an honor,” Kisfaludy said of the naming, regardless of it being a parasite. “That’s what Scripps is in the business of doing, things that nobody has ever done. If somebody has done it before, there’s no place for you at Scripps,” he said of his former employer. “So my job was to be in the business of making things happen that had never been done before, and this fin whale fall was no different than collecting a nebalia and finding a parasitic rotifer on its gills.” It was a first. While at Scripps, Kisfaludy also combined a love of the ocean with a passion for flying. “That was my big hobby,” he said. “I took every dollar I made and threw it straight up into the sky or at an airplane. I ended up being a commercial pilot with a flight instructor rating, bought a plane, and developed two businesses around it.” Kisfaludy will narrate a 30-minute video presentation on the whale fall titled “A Whale of a Tale,” on Thursday, Feb. 2, at 7 p.m., at the Del Mar Television Foundation’s Communications Building, 240 10th Street, Del Mar. For more information, you are invited to call: 858-224-3888.

Does your child like to sing? Consider auditioning for the St. Nicholas Choristers January is a great time for new singers to join the St. Nicholas Choristers — a children’s choir based at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Del Mar — as the choir is at its halfway point in the 2011-2012 season. The choir is open to all girls and boys age 7 and up (boys of unchanged voice), regardless of musical experience and religious affiliation. Auditions are available by appointment with Ruben Valenzuela, director of music. No preparation is required for the audition; the five-minute informal appointment involves simple range and pitch-matching tests. The St. Nicholas Choristers are introduced to a world of great music: from traditional hymns and Gregorian chants, to Renais-

sance motets in Latin, Bach in German, and English cathedral music from among the most prized gems our of Anglican choral and liturgical heritage. Great emphasis is given to music-reading skills, basic vocal production and overall musicianship. The St. Nicholas Choristers follow the Voice for Life chorister training scheme and are affiliated with the Royal School of Church Music, America and the Royal School of Church Music, UK. And it’s fun, too! For more information, contact Ruben Valenzuela at 858-755-1616 or at To learn more about St. Peter’s, see

‘Borrow-A-Bag Bring-A-Bag’ program starts at Del Mar Farmers Market In an ongoing effort to reduce waste at the Del Mar Farmers Market, a simple, yet effective way to reuse market bags is being adopted. Beginning Saturday, Jan. 28, those with excess shopping bags will be able to donate the bags to the “Borrow-a-Bag Bring-a-Bag” bin that will be located at the market manager’s table. The concept is simple: if you have extra, clean, sturdy bags, preferably with handles, you can “bring” them to the market. Then someone else who needs a bag will “borrow” a bag and “bring” it back the next time they shop at the market. Along with more vigilant recycling efforts, this program will be part of an increased effort to limit the market’s waste stream. So, look around your house for all those bags and “bring” them to the market and someone else will gratefully “borrow” them. The Del Mar Farmers Market is held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. every Saturday in the City Hall parking lot between 10th and 11th Streets. For more information, go to

PATRIOT continued from page 14 parents. “We have the people involved and excited.” MJ beams talking about the Children’s Book Exchange, a program she started, that gives kids a chance to check out books from the Gator Library, get a book bag to decorate, eat ice cream and socialize. MJ can hand a [free] program like this over to volunteer Family Readiness Assistants (FRAs) to implement in their own companies. “We give them everything they need, except the ice cream.” The Spouse Club doesn’t advertise the people they assist. MJ states, “It’s just what we do.” It could be helping a family buy gas to visit a sick baby in a far-away hospital, finding someone to fix a lawnmower or another to bring in meals. How many people are helped or problems averted is hard to tally.

“You know it’s really working when you have a new spouse log on to our Spouse Club Facebook page saying, ‘My husband’s gone. I don’t know what I’m doing — help.’ That means the word’s getting out and she feels comfortable posting that information.” “If our Marines and sailors can train in the field or deploy overseas knowing in the bottom of their hearts their families are being taken care of and active in the battalion, this allows them to focus on being the most ready. For my husband,” reflects MJ, “the end result is mission accomplished.” Back home, it’s a mission in progress. Ways to help the battalion: •Dear Marine – Children’s letter writing campaign for deployed Marines of the 3rd AABN.

2011 State Champions, Surf Boys U10 recently went north to the Legends Tournament in Chino Hills to prepare for the 2012 State Championships, which will begin in a few weeks. The team faced off in the finals against their rival, last year’s State Championship game opponent FC Golden State Academy (previously LA Cosmos). As always, the game was a hard-fought battle between the two determined teams. Identical to the 2011 match up in this same tournament, the game went to overtime. The score was 1-1, when the whistle blew in regulation. In the second period of golden goal, with about 30 seconds left before penalty kicks the Surf team scored the winning goal. Coach Dave Currie couldn’t have been happier with the consistent strong play of his team throughout the tournament. The championship was truly a team effort. He felt the boys played their four best games of the season. The team now prepares for their first round of the state tournament, which begins on Feb. 11.


January 26, 2012 fact, all our opponents played excellent soccer,� noted Coach Illingworth. “We scored almost every way you can – headers, corners, direct kicks, penalty kicks, hard shots from outside the box, finesse shots pushed past the keeper – and then for our defense to allow only one goal was just incredible.� In group play, Manchester bested La Roca (UT) 6-0, Fire FC (UT) 8-0, and Arsenal (CAS) 7-1. Manchester then earned a hardfought 3-0 victory in a physical semifinal

San Diego Surf ‘98-’99 BU13 Team wins two tournaments in a row Congratulations to the San Diego Surf ‘98-’99 BU13 Team and Coach Michael “Nico” Nicholson for winning back to back tournaments. They won the Surf Thanksgiving Tournament in November and recently came out on top at Legends Tournament in Chino Hills. This past weekend was extremely exciting with the boys winning 1-0, 3-1, 2-0, 2-0 and headed into overtime in the finals tied 1-1 against a very strong Legends team. Goalkeeper Tyler Dean was outstanding and blocked 4 penalty kicks, while Jake “Edu” Edwards and Owen “back flip” Achieris connected on their kicks to assure the win for Surf. Izzy Gutierrez, Chris Depetro, JT Henderson, Greg Matus and Jordan Karam also scored goals for their team this weekend.

Local man

shares random

acts of poetry Lisa Kaczmarczyk (right) with a friend in the Colorado Rockies.

CV author’s new book shows how computers can be used to make a difference BY KATHY DAY Lisa Kaczmarczyk figured out how to combine her interests in social issues with her expertise in computer science by writing a book, “Computers and Society – Computing for Good.” “I wanted to write about societal issues in a way that hadn’t been done before,” the Carmel Valley resident said last week. “So often we hear about problems with computers – hacking, privacy issues – but I wanted to show how people can make a difference using computers and make a living doing it.” Kaczmarczyk didn’t take a direct route into a career in computer science. Her undergraduate degrees are in drama and Spanish, but she said she always had an interest in computers so she took lots of classes as an undergrad. “I talked my way into a lot of classes,” she said, adding that when she graduated she had enough training that she was able to get a job in the computer industry before going back to school for a master’s degree. When she got back into school, she said, she really liked graduate school and completed two graduate degrees, including a Ph.D., along with extensive course work in Intercultural Communication studies and Systems Science. Then she got two job offers: One in Silicon Valley, one to teach at a community college. She took the teaching job and “never looked back.” It was then she started doing research and tried to get papers published. Following a pattern of “school-work-school-work,” she eventually returned to a computer industry job “that didn’t turn out to be what it was supposed to be.” Today, she is an evaluation and assessment consultant, working with faculty who have National Science Foundation grants in STEM – science, technology, engineering and math – research. She serves as an external evaluator on their projects. Settling in Carmel Valley about two and a half years ago, she decided to pursue her interest in writing a book that “puts a human spin on what people in the computer industry do.” It’s not all about “sitting in a cubicle in a dark office or being a code monkey,” she said, adding that computers frequently come into play for the good of our society, and that’s where she chose to put her focus. Her book is designed as a textbook, with case studies SEE AUTHOR, PAGE B27

BY CLAIRE HARLIN “This is a random act of poetry,” said Dylan Barmmer as he handed a note card to a passing girl at the Solana Beach Amtrak Station on a recent Wednesday evening. She read it:

Heart Don’t be Heartbroken you know that thing’s a muscle tear it to build it She raised her hand to her mouth, letting out a sincere gasp. “Oh my gosh, how did you know I needed to hear that?” she said. “Wow, you really made my day.” For Barmmer, such a reactions are not uncommon. They’re the reason he has continued to share at least 3,000 random acts of poetry — all in the haiku form —around North County in the last couple of years. If you frequent the local farmers’ markets or coffee shops, it’s likely he has handed one to you. Or, you may have seen his poetry cards on a shelf or bulletin board at Bindu Yoga in Del Mar or Java Depot in Solana Beach, to name a couple of places they’re often left. “Nobody else is really doing this that I know of and most people seem surprised at it,” said Barmmer. “If it’s only a few minutes a day, it gives me something to do that people aren’t going to encounter anywhere else.” Barmmer, who makes his living in the field of web marketing, really got into poetry a few years ago when he went to a poetry reading on a massive lawn surrounded by redwoods at the Henry Miller Memorial Library in Big Sur. “I was learning how to have control of my mind and harness my thoughts a little bit better, so I went to an open mic,” said Barmmer. “I wrote some things on the fly and went on stage and I got a great response.” He started writing more and more, and he said it was therapeutic. His “random acts of poetry” idea came later, but at first it didn’t involve note cards with haikus. The original idea, he said, was to video record poems in different locations, chosen according to the content of the poem. For example, when Barm-

mer was let go from his job a few years ago — during a tough recession — he wrote a poem for those experiencing job loss and read it in front of his former employer’s office building. “It was about dealing with job loss and stepping into uncertainty and following your heart,” said Barmmer of the video, which can be viewed along with his others at wordisborntv. “I got more feedback on that than any poem, and that was the genesis for me to dive deeper into it.” But after making almost 90 videos, Barmmer decided to take a different direction with his random acts of poetry. “It seems like it was all about me and I thought that was kind of egocentric, so I started going around with blank cards and a pen. I asked people to give me a topic and I would write them a poem,” he said. “I did that once all day at the Encinitas Street Fair. I got like $100 in tips, but I also got really sunburned.” Now, he keeps about 25 poems in circulation that he said people have responded positively to, and he hands them out. On the back of each card is information about his “WORD” poetry readings that take place every third Monday from 7 to 9 p.m. at E Street SEE POETRY, PAGE B27

Barmmer’s “random acts” of poetry aren’t always random. He’s left the following haiku in ATM cash slots:

Adventurer from St. Louis ends 2,500-mile walk in Del Mar BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

La Jolla Cultural Partners

On Aug. 8, Anthony Lambing set off walking in Charleston, S.C., and he had no intention of stopping until he reached Del Mar. At three miles an hour, the 26-year-old from St. Louis made his way across America, and on Jan. 20 around 2 p.m., he arrived on the beach at Powerhouse Park — rugged and sunburned — to meet his anxiously waiting family. “I’m so relieved and I wasn’t even the one walking,” said his mom, Sherry, as he strolled in. “I knew this was something he really wanted to do, and it went so much better than I could have imagined.” So why did Lambing make the 2,500-mile, five-month trek across the states? Simply put, he wanted to quench his thirst for adventure. “The idea of traveling across America crossed my mind, and I just couldn’t get it out of my head,” said Lambing. “I decided to walk because I hadn’t been on a bike in forever and running seemed like a lot of work.” Lambing carried a bicycle trailer with him along the way. On it, he fixed a sign with his blog address, He mainly camped and stayed with acquaintances along the way, but some cities he passed through were kind enough to make accommodations for him. “The morning I’d be going into a town, I would call the City Hall and tell them my website and tell them what I was doing and ask if I could put up a tent overnight,” he said. “A lot of times they would pick the fire department as a place to stay … One Town Hall directed me to a local who loved travelers, and a couple hooked me up with a free hotel room.” Lambing has amassed quite a following and befriended many throughout his travels. He has well over 1,000 followers on his Facebook page, “Anthony Walks America,” and his blog has a total of about 28,000 views. But those aren’t all unique views, he said. “I can probably tell you that my mom checks it three

Anthony Lambing (second from right) stands on the beach in Del Mar with his brother, Nick, and his parents, Patrick and Sherry, after finishing a five-month trek across the United States. Photo/Claire Harlin times a day,” he said. And Sherry confirmed that. “I checked it obsessively,” she said. Sherry and Lambing’s father, Patrick, were very much a part of their son’s travels throughout the entire trek. Lambing talked to his mother on the phone several times a day, and both Sherry and Patrick tuned in on speaker phone at night. Sherry said she followed him on Google Earth, examine the terrain and surroundings of all his locations, and Patrick said he would often go back and look through all the photos on his son’s blog, start to finish. Lambing said the experience never got old, however, he did at one point feel fed up with walking. “Halfway through New Mexico, I decided I was tired of

walking. I wasn’t tired of traveling, but I was tired of walking,” he said. “It became completely normal and it was what I was doing for so long that the fact that there would be an end didn’t really register.” Lambing said he strategically plotted his course in order to see areas he was interested in — namely the South — and he ended his travels in Del Mar because he has a great aunt, whom he had never met, who lives in the area. It’s hard to say what place along the way was his favorite, he said, but he found Georgia to be surprisingly interesting because there were so many small towns where movies and TV shows had been filmed. “If you were to drive across America, you would just get off the highway for gas. But I got to see the places that you would only see if you lived there. Places that nobody would go except the locals,” he said. One striking feature of the small towns, he said, was the fact that people congregated and made a hangout of the local gas stations. “I also couldn’t believe it when I saw people in the South buy a 20-ounce soda and pour a bag of peanuts in it,” he said. “I’m from Missouri and you just don’t see those kinds of things there.” The biggest challenge Lambing said he ran into was running out of money, but his followers, acquaintances and family helped sustain him financially during the last half of his trip. He said he spent about $5,000 over the course of his travels. Not only did his supporters help him along the way, but he said he’s made lifelong friends. He said a number of people checked in frequently to support him on his blog and Facebook page, and some acquaintances even called to check in on him occasionally. “I can probably take a vacation to every state I went through for sure and have places to stay for free,” said Lambing, who now plans to return to his job at Target.

Feast on fantastic fare with an ocean view at Flavor Del Mar BY KELLEY CARLSON visit to Flavor Del Mar serves as a feast for the senses. For starters, the California contemporary cuisine is uncomplicated, yet is concocted to delight the taste buds. “The chef uses few ingredients on the plate, but creates innovative combinations that are delicious,” Assistant General Manager Gabrielle Clift said. “They’re not fussy and not over sauced; they’re simple, clean and fresh.” The restaurant’s interior, and its views from the third floor of the Del Mar Plaza, are certainly easy on the eyes. The ocean can be seen from every table. “There isn’t one bad seat in the house,” Clift said. “The sunset views here are amazing.” The marine theme is reflected in Flavor’s decor, featuring varying shades of white, green and blue. At the bar, there is cerulean-hued glass simulating waves. While guests can’t hear the crashing surf, they can tune in to sounds from the ’80s and today’s Top 40 hits during the lunch hour. The tempo picks up at dinner, becoming more “clubby” and electronic, and a disc jockey plays dance music from 8 p.m. to close Fridays with no cover charge. For the ultimate Flavor experience, Clift recommends arriving during happy hour and munching on Pickled Potatoes, a play on salt-and-vinegar chips that is served with a side of crème fraiche and chives. “It’s the perfect thing to snack on with a cocktail in hand at the bar,” Clift said. Make sure to have an early reservation on the glass-enclosed, temperaturecontrolled patio in order to watch the sun

dip below the horizon — the dinner rush usually picks up around 6 p.m. and quiets back down at 8 p.m. Whether you’re sitting by a window or the cozy fireplace, arrive with enough of an appetite to sample several courses. Share a Tuna Crisp topped with red onion, shiso and white truffle oil. Or open the meal with Scallop Ceviche, a Pear Salad or a Foie Gras Doughnut. For the main course, try the Maine Diver Scallops with potato two ways, cauliflower, wild mushrooms and Meyer lemon. For a “meatier” entree, there’s Braised Prime Beef Short Rib, with potato puree, quail egg ravioli, gingered carrots, onion chip and natural jus. Children may select from items such as beef sliders and pasta with butter and cheese. Next, savor the Butterscotch Budino, an Italian pudding with crème fraiche,

caramel and Maldon sea salt. Finish the night off around the corner at Flavor’s wine bar, Sip, with a glass of port and a cheese platter, sampling from up to 25 artisanal varieties. There are more than 40 wines by the glass to choose from and two large community tables designed for interaction with other guests.

Friendships take an unexpected turn in ‘The Recommendation’ BY DIANA SAENGER “The Recommendation,� an upfront look at real friendship, began its world premiere in The Old Globe’s Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre on Jan. 21. In the script written by Jonathan Caren (“Friends in Transient Places,� “Catch the Fish�) and directed by Jonathan Munby (“The Winter’s Tale,� “The Canterbury Tales�) two young men — one of upper-class, the other middle class — must re-examine their friendship when a third person becomes involved. The cast includes Jimonn Cole (Dwight Barnes), Brandon Gill (Iskinder Iudoku), and Evan Todd (Aaron Feldman). Todd (“The Seagull,� “A Raisin in the Sun�) and playwright Caren were attending the same school when Todd approached Caren to see if he had written any plays with a

20-year-old character in mind. He discovered Caren had just finished his first draft of “The Recommendation,� and later Todd auditioned for the role of Aaron. “I found the play funny, but at the same time, serious,� Todd said. “It’s smart, but not overly intellectualized and touches on a lot of issues — class, friendship, and to an extent, race. The play has depth and is contemporary. The writing is very good, and the characters are fun to portray.� The smart and charming Aaron comes from a privileged background, but

his new college roommate, Iskinder (Gill “Holler If Ya Hear Me,â€? “Neighborsâ€?), hails from a middle-class immigrant family. “Aaron is a guy that every one knows or has in their lives,â€? Todd said. “He’s charming, has family connections and knows how to work the system ‌ through his own ambitions, drive and determination ends up on top.â€? At first Aaron becomes a mentor to Iskinder and opens new doors for him. Then Dwight (Cole – “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter,â€? “Taming of the Shrewâ€?), an

accused felon, enters the picture and everything changes for the three men. Aaron discovers it will take more than his clout or money to solve sudden problems. All three actors attended The Julliard School, and Todd previously worked with Gill. “I think this benefited us in working together here, and gave us a bit of insight into the way we became these characters,� Todd said. “The play is so relatable to situations that take place today and raises a question about giving something to someone: Is it really selfless or does that giver expect something in return? ‘The Recommendation’ is interesting and lively, and audience members will find some of the circumstances funny because they have been in those exact situations.�

By educating the youth, we reduce the crimes and the wars we see around the globe. I introduced the art because I strongly believe art helps bring beauty into the lives of all. Our event encourages young artists to be engaged as part of a solution to educate. This is the key to our success.

An Important Letter To All Solana Beach Residents And The Solana Beach City Council The Solana Beach City Council is inaccurately portraying any opposition to a proposed low-income housing project as the irrational fear of residents to affordable housing in their neighborhood. The proposed project would replace a dedicated beach access parking lot in the 500 block of South SierraAvenue. This property was deeded to the City of Solana Beach by the County with the restriction that it be used for public parking. This dedication was a promise to the public that it would have open access to the public beaches indefinitely. If the Solana Beach City Council approves this project, the valuable beach access parking lot will be leased to the Developer for 65 years at the rate of One Dollar ($1.00) per year. At the same time, the City is struggling to balance its budget. In addition, the City Council is willing to lend at least 2.3 Million Dollars ($2,300,000) to the Developer with no evidence that repayment will occur for decades, if at all. Finally, the proposed tax credits obtained by the developer would result in a loss of at least Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) in revenue that could otherwise be used for education and other public services. The Solana Beach City Council has received hundreds of signatures opposing the replacement of the beach access parking lot with this project which will remove all visible open parking spaces. The Developer and the City have yet to adequately address how the public and residents will safely exit the parking lot without eliminating even more public parking and beach access. Yes, nearby residents do object to the size and scale of the project. The project requires the Solana Beach City Council to grant multiple exemptions from our current building codes, such as maximum height, parking minimums, set backs and compliance with the Solana Beach Corridor Specific Plan design and guideline requirements. The Corridor Specific Plan, with input from residents, defines how the corridor of South Sierra Avenue must be designed. Approval of the project’s density by itself would violate the State and our City’s density bonus law. Most residents of Solana Beach have objected to any project if the size and

Betty Ford Center’s ‘Young Adult Track’ program created in response to growing youth drug problems BY DIANE Y. WELCH It’s a sobering thought that for the past century car crashes have been the nation’s leading cause of accidental death. Yet today, more Americans are dying from prescription drug overdose than from any other accidental cause, according to a recently published statistical report by the Center for Disease Control. And it’s not just adults who are abusing. A report published in 2011 by the Partnership at indicates a recent sharp rise in prescription substance abuse among adolescents, following a prior decade of continuous decline in other substance abuse. “What’s happening today is kids are becoming chemically dependent on prescription pain medication like Oxycontin, Percocet and Vicodin, and often they are getting the drugs from the medicine cabinet at home,” said John T. Schwarzlose, CEO of the Betty Ford Center, a residential rehabilitation facility in Rancho Mirage. “If kids get caught with heroin or cocaine they are arrested and placed in the legal system; kids who get caught with Vicodin that came from their parents may not get arrested at all. They learn very quickly, ‘Why take illegal drugs when I can take prescribed medications and get just as good a high.’ This is truly an epidemic across the nation,” Schwarzlose said. Founded by former first lady Betty Ford and Leonard Firestone in 1982, the Betty Ford Center has focused on a singular mission: To provide effective treatment services for alcoholism and other drug dependencies. One of its most recent programs is the Young Adult Track (YAT) created for 18-25 year-olds. The youth program was established in response to a marked increase in phone calls to the center from parents with similar stories: Their college-aged children, well-educated and intelligent, had dropped out because of drug abuse. “Now they are back home, hanging out on the couch, when they are not doing drugs they are playing video games or watching TV, and their parents are wondering what to do, they are desperate,” said Schwarzlose. Unlike other rehabilitation programs, the Betty Ford

The Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage. Center focuses on the entire family. “The only way we will accept a new patient is if the family commits to coming in for a full five-day intensive family program that offers group and individual therapy and counseling,” said Schwarzlose. This five-day program educates other family members about the challenges of addiction and substance abuse, offers them emotional support and gives an introduction into the rehabilitation process for the patient. For one North County-based family, the Betty Ford Center youth program has been a lifesaver. “This is my second round with drug addiction in my family,” said the mother of three who chose to withhold her name. Her oldest child, a son, who would have been 30 last month, developed a drug problem in eighth grade. Struggling with his addiction for nine years, he eventually died from an overdose that had left him stranded and suffering from exposure in the desert. Alerted to the dangers that addicts face, when her teenage daughter started abusing drugs as a freshman in high school, action was needed. With unacceptable behavior, a DUI, breaking house rules and continued drug use, the situ-

ation was out of hand. Online research and referrals from friends led the mother to the Betty Ford Center. “I gave my daughter the choice of leaving our home for good or going into a treatment program at Betty Ford,” she said. The daughter chose treatment. The center’s program, based on the Twelve Steps of spiritual and character development central to Alcoholics Anonymous, was excellent for the teenager and gave her valuable coping tools, said her mother. Being kept busy all day, the daughter had productive therapy sessions with certified professionals trained in drug counseling, a strong structure, daily exercise and emotional support. Graduating last month, she volunteered for a continuous year of monitoring, was placed in a sober-living facility and continues to be drugfree. “I now see a smile on her face I haven’t seen for years,” said the mother. The YAT program is designed to meet the unique treatment needs of young female and male adults who are financially dependent upon their parents or other family members. Patients receive enhanced treatment activities to meet their unique development and gender needs. A minimum length of stay is 90 days, with the recommended length of stay 120 days at a cost of less than $500 a day, inclusive of everything: The medical care, the family program, the psychiatric care, room and board and followup. For those with an inability to pay there are scholarship programs available, said Schwarzlose. And advice is given for alternative programs. “We are here to help,” he said. Visit for more information about programs. The website has a toll free 24 hour hotline, 800-434-7365, that people may call for immediate advice.

TPHS visual artists’ work honored at Del Mar Highlands event About 14 years ago, Del Mar Highlands Town Center and its merchants wanted to reach out and support their local schools and their young community members. With pressure emanating for funding of school art programs and classes jeopardized, the Be True To Your SchoolSave the Arts program was born. The program has evolved over the years with multiple formats inviting the schools to participate in various ways to receive a share of the donation allotment to support their school’s art programs. In 2002, the program transformed to a center-wide art walk for a two-week period. Each year since then an average of 600-900 pieces of student art has been displayed in merchants’ store-front windows for the community to view. Due to construction and renovations of Del Mar Highlands that took place this last year, the format was changed to offer a contest for local school students to create holiday cards for soldiers. The best were selected to be reproduced into packets which were then sold to help fund The Vision of Children, a foundation which funds the cure of genetically-caused childhood blindness. (Above) The two Torrey Pines High School visual artists’ exceptional entries chosen for reproduction were created by Junior Hannah Buechler (left) and Senior Anna Grace Irwin (right).

Former Mass. Gov. Michael Dukakis visits local school • Wife, Kitty, tells parents how shock therapy helped her cope with severe depression BY PAT SHERMAN Former Mass. Gov. Michael Dukakis and his wife, Kitty, visited La Jolla Country Day School Jan. 20, speaking with parents and students as they toured the campus. Their day began as Kitty met with a group of parents to discuss her book, “Shock: The Healing Power of Electroconvulsive Therapy.” In 2001, Mrs. Dukakis began undergoing electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), formerly known as electroshock, a psychiatric treatment in which seizures are electrically induced in patients. The treatments are used to manage the symptoms of catatonia and chronic depression, which Mrs. Dukakis formerly treated with a heavy regimen of antidepressants. The controversial treatment received attention when actress and author Carrie Fisher discussed her success using ECT to treat bipolar disorder, which she recounts in her recent memoir, “Shockaholic.” “She brought it to the public in a way that, frankly, left me horrified,” Mrs. Dukakis said. Seated in the room with his wife, Michael Dukakis told how ECT treatments have mellowed during the decades. He said the practice has come a long way since its depiction in the 1975 film “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” in which Jack Nicholson’s character receives vicious jolts of current in a “shock shop.” “It’s a very different treatment today,” Mr. Dukakis said, noting that the patient is anesthetized and less electricity is used. Mrs. Dukakis said she received her first ECT treatment on her and her husband’s wedding anniversary. With ECT treatments, she was able to stop taking antidepressants. “Look at her, folks,” Michael Dukakis said. “Here she is, 75 year of age. I keep introducing her as the best-looking social security recipient in the country.”

(Right) Former Mass. Gov. Michael Dukakis and his wife, Kitty, greet a parent at La Jolla Country Day School. However, he noted, his wife’s depression is chronic and must be constantly managed. She receives ECT treatments once per month at Massachusetts General Hospital. Mr. Dukakis said the procedures have caused some memory loss in his wife. After undergoing one of her first ECT treatments, Kitty Dukakis had no recollection of a trip to Paris. When the couple returned, it was as if she were experiencing the city for the first time. “That’s kind of become a model for us,” Mrs. Dukakis said. “You just forget.” Following the discussion, Mr. Dukakis visited several classrooms to speak with students and field questions about his two terms as governor of Massachusetts, as well as his stint as the 1998 Democratic presidential nominee. Addressing students in Robert Grasso’s eighth grade American History class, Mr. Dukakis said his positive impetus to seek public office was John F. Kennedy, and his nega-

tive impetus, former Sen. Joseph McCarthy. He recalled his time in the early 1950s as a student at Pennsylvania’s Swarthmore College, where he helped organize a boycott of the town’s barbershops (in response to their policy of refusing service to black customers). Mr. Dukakis wound up starting an integrated barber service on campus, he recalled. “All of this progress that we’ve made (in this country) was because good people got involved,” he said, urging students to become “actively engaged” in their community and perhaps consider a future in politics. “It’s not only important,” he said. “It’s fun. It makes life a lot more interesting.” Fielding questions about the current crop of GOP presidential contenders from students and parents, Mr. Dukakis did not hold back, reserving harsh criticism for frontrunners Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. “We are experts on Mitt Romney,” he said of his successor to the Massachusetts governorship. “Before you ever think of voting for that guy, talk to us. … He was a lousy governor.” Of the GOP contenders, Dukakis said he preferred Jon Huntsman, who dropped out of the race following the New Hampshire primary. Huntsman was “head and shoulders” over the other Republican candidates and “has a very responsible worldview,” but “he’s not a Tea Party guy,” he said. During a mid-day assembly, Mr. Dukakis received the school’s inaugural “Friend of Country Day Award.” This is the third year Mr. Dukakis has visited with students at the school, in concert with the City Club of San Diego. On Jan. 21 he delivered his annual “State of American Politics” address to City Club members in the school’s community room.

Directed by Jo Bonney and written by Richard Montoya with Culture Clash, “American Night,” a comedic satire, is a co-production with Center Theatre Group and was originally commissioned and produced by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF). “American Night: The Ballad of Juan José” is about a young family man hoping to become a U.S. citizen until the pressures of accomplishing that feat make him think twice. Millán (“Don Quixote,” Broadway’s “The Wild Party”), who has performed at OSF since 2005, said he found everything about the script appealing and grabbed

the role of Juan in the original production. “When I heard this play was the first play of the ‘American Revolutions: The United States History Cycle’ by the OSF, I was excited,” Millán said. “I’m a huge fan of history; it was my major at the University of Redlands. I was also thrilled that it was part of Culture Clash, as I’ve always wanted to work with Richard, Rick and Herb.” Millán feels this is his story, too. He grew up in the Barrio area of San Diego, and his parents and two brothers still live here. He attended Union High School, waited tables at Brockton Villa at the Cove, and began acting at the San Diego REP Theatre and in two San Diego Opera productions. He did his undergrad work at U or R and then earned his master’s degree in acting at the University of Washington. “I went to that school to focus on the Tadashi Su-

zuki actor training program, but I always thought, if acting didn’t work out I could teach,” Millán said. “I had a real sense of pride to earn a master’s degree as a Latino. The role of Juan touches my heart because I’m a first-generation American and grew up with emigrants in Logan Heights. I heard their stories, and like Juan in this play, they were just trying to better themselves and make things better for their families.” As the script moves along, the night before Juan must take the U.S. nationalization test he’s pouring over the 100 flash cards and the citizen almanac booklet given him to study. He’s under pressure to get his wife and child out of the dangerous situations in Mexico. “He’s feverishly cramming and nervous about not passing the exam and he falls asleep,” Millán said. “Then he begins to dream and finds himself caught up in different events in Ameri-

Karate Black Belt Level 8, Life Scout, and TV producer among accomplishments achieved so far by student with Asperger syndrome Winston School junior Tim Higgins is a Karate Black Belt Level 8, a Life Scout (one step before Eagle), and he produces television shows for Del Mar TV. He also scuba dives, and volunteers at the YMCA, as well as for the White Sea Bass Project. And he shares a passion for trains with his father, volunteering weekends as a docent cashier/ tour guide for the San Diego Vintage Trolley. Looking at him today, it would be hard to comprehend that before starting at the Winston School (www.thewinstonschool. com) in November 2010, he was a struggling student with Asperger Syndrome trying to make his way in classes with 40-plus students and bullies around every corner. Even the previous school’s “solutions” became problems, Higgins said. “They pull you out of the regular class to go to resource class, but classes wouldn’t crossover. I’d get double the math work — 60 problems a night — that became even more difficult because I spent time in resource class during the traditional math class.” Higgins’ mother, who is a special education advocate, attended the Winston School Conversation series featuring speaker Ed Asner and knew the school was a good fit for her son. From that first day, Higgins liked the school. “It was enjoyable to come to Winston and see more traditional classrooms and functioning school grounds where everyone gets along. I didn’t have to watch my back and wait for someone to attack me like at the previous school.” He said he has made many friends at Winston in the last year and appreciates the diversity of students. “I have a lot of friends. Everyone has groups of friends they hang out with in different environments. They sit in the auditorium, outside, have a game day pass where the can play video games, but that’s not a priority for me as I don’t play them. Here I can get along pretty much with everyone – at other schools the kids were getting into things they shouldn’t – attitudes are off. You can connect with the people here – including the teachers. “All the teachers have been influential,” he said. “They’ve all influenced me in their own way, even teachers I haven’t had. It’s a community here so even if you don’t have them they still talk to you, it’s really nice.” Winston Headmaster Mike Peterson underscores his student’s point, but says there’s more to the story. “At Winston, it is the entire community that educates and not just inside the classroom. But this effect is greatly magnified when you have a student as

Tim Higgins willing to engage, as curious and as observant as Tim. He’s a remarkable young man.” One teacher he immediately connected with was Dan Peragine. Higgins had already discovered an interest in video production before his first day at Winston when he met the popular Winston teacher. Peragine recognized Higgins’ talent and immersed his new student in the school’s video program. Higgins’ first project was editing the online video of the school’s production of “Grease” and he has edited all the other productions since, including “Footloose” and the most recent production, “Wizard of Oz.” He also produced videos for the school’s talent shows, and middle and upper school bands. Higgins’ video work has also extended beyond the school. “The Winston school has encouraged everything I wanted to do – I’ve gone from one tiny camera to a three-camera set up,” he said. Through his work with Peragine, Higgins has also become a certified producer through The Del Mar Television Association. After taking a four-hour course and learning how to operate the equipment, he also started producing healthy family lifestyle training videos with a local chiropractor and recently completed a short video on the vintage trolley Silverline that runs in downtown San Diego on the weekends. Higgins is also in the planning stages of producing a monthly segment for Del Mar TV called “Winston Windows” and he’s working on another episode of “Healthy Family.” He said this latest show will focus on healthy eating and recipes from the Paleo Diet, incorporating foods that are gathered or hunted – nuts, vegetables and meat. A big part of his life since he was 5 has been karate. Currently ranked a level 8 junior black belt, he’s planning to train for adult black belt next year. He is also a volunteer teacher at the YMCA. Boy Scouts has been another constant and he’s in the proSee STUDENT, page B23

Students encouraged to participate in Del Mar- Pacific Ridge classmates give back to Solana Beach Optimist Club Oratorical Contest college students impacted by cancer

The Del Mar-Solana Beach Optimist Club is holding an oratorical contest, encouraging area students to speak their minds on the topic: “How my Optimism Helps me Overcome Obstacles.” The Optimist Oratorial Contest gives youngsters the chance to speak before an audience. Winners at the club level win $150 for first place, $100 for second place and $50 for third place. The Optimist Club will judge the local students’ speeches based on content and presentation to determine the top winners. Club winners will be sent to the zone level and zone level winners to the district level for the opportunity to win college scholarships. The deadline to hand in speeches is Feb. 10. Students wishing to participate can pick up an entry form at the Solana Beach Library at 157 Stevens Avenue, Solana Beach, 92075. Students can also download the entry form at Completed forms can be dropped off at the library. For more information, contact Pat Tirona at (760) 717-7093.

Classmates from Pacific Ridge School in Carlsbad have created a service learning group, The Phoenix Foundation, to help college students who have had cancer. The students recognize that cancer is devastating not only for the individual, but also for his or her loved ones, and that chemotherapy is costly and can quickly deplete a college fund. As part of the service learning experience, Levine and his classmates will learn about the different types of cancer that inflict teenagers and the ways that cancer can change lives. To take this knowledge and put it to

use for the good of the community, the group will work with the charity Cancer For College, which awards scholarships to cancer survivors. The students will advocate for the charity’s efforts and volunteer their time during service learning class periods and after school hours. The students’ goal: to meet a scholarship recipient that they’ve helped and to have that student come to Pacific Ridge School to talk about his or her experience.

Have a jolly good Yorkshire Pudding Day on Feb. 5 The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE L. KAUFMAN While France bubbles over with Champagne, Spain paella, Italy pastas and pizzas, England (more revered for its castles than its cuisine) pays kudos to its iconic dish by celebrating Yorkshire Pudding Day the first Sunday in February. When wheat flour became available to commoner cooks in Northern England, they concocted a batter blended with pan drippings from roasted meats. In 1737, the foreloper to the modern day Yorkshire pudding recipe, called “a dripping pudding,” was published in “The Whole Duty

of a Woman” cookbook: “Make a good batter as for pancakes; put in a hot tosspan over the fire with a bit of butter to fry the bottom a little, then put the pan and butter under a shoulder of mutton, instead of a dripping pan, keeping frequently shaking it by the handle and it will be light and savoury, and fit to take up when your mutton is enough; then turn it in a dish and serve it hot.” A decade later food writer and cook, Hannah Glasse, rejiggered the original batter recipe and renamed it “Yorkshire Pudding” in “The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Simple.” The cookbook became a blockbuster making the dish a smashing hit throughout the land. This savory, fluffy sidedish, typically served with lamb or beef, was elevated to a frugal first course as a cheaper way of filling hungry tummies, followed by smaller portions of costlier meat entrees. Leftover Yorkshire pudding was devoured cold from the icebox or enjoyed as a dessert with a dollop of jam or a sprinkling of dried fruit.

The delightful dish has stood the test of time, surviving both World Wars, food rationing of the 1950s, and the Mad Men era of the ’60s. However, during the explosion of convenience foods, fewer housewives were home on the range, and Yorkshire pudding took a powder. This paved the way for Aunt Bessie’s brand, the first commercially produced Yorkshire pudding in 1995. The beloved British carb has become such a national treasure that even the Royal Society of Chemistry issued a ruling to regulate its dimensions: it must be more than four-inches tall to be considered a bonafide Yorkshire pudding. Recently, Vale of York MP Anne McIntosh lobbied for Yorkshire pudding to have protected status, like French Champagne and Greek feta cheese.

Apple & Blueberry Yorkshires A sweet new twist on this old fave, comes compliments of Florence Sandeman, publisher of Cheerio! Ingredients Vegetable oil 2 small apples 1 ounce of butter 2 ounces sugar (granulated, brown or caster) 5 ounces of milk 1 egg 3 ounces of unbleached flour 2 tablespoons maple syrup, plus extra for serving 3 ounces of frozen or fresh blueberries Method 1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Place about 1/4-inch of oil in the bottom of 4 of the holes of a large 6-hole muffin tin, and place in the oven while it’s pre-heating. 2. Peel and core the apples, then dice (no larger than 1/2-inch). 3. Melt the butter in a small frying pan. Stir in the sugar then add the apple. Cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes, turning and stirring frequently, until just softened. 4. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the apple mixture to a large plate, spread out

and place in the fridge while you make the batter. 5. Place the milk, egg, flour and maple syrup in a mixing bowl and beat with hand whisk or electric mixer until well blended and smooth. 6. Add the cooled apple to the batter and mix well. 7. Make sure the oil in the muffin tin is very hot. Once sizzling, divide the apple/batter mixture between the 4 holes, then sprinkle the fresh or frozen blueberries on top. 8. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown and slightly risen. Drizzle with maple syrup and a dollop of ice cream. (Serves 4)

Unique premiere of ‘The Sneetches’ is Symphony tribute to Audrey Geisel The San Diego Symphony honored Audrey Geisel for her long-time support of the arts at the West Coast premiere of “The Sneetches,” a work for narrator and orchestra by Spanish composer Lorenzo Palomo, Jan. 17, at the Neurosciences Institute Auditorium. The Sneetch story, by Geisel’s husband, the late Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel), explores the folly of prejudice — some Sneetches have a green star on their bellies, and some of them don’t — and the narrow-mindedness that results, inviting more foolishness. The composition was commissioned for the Rochester (New York) Philharmonic by physician Sid Sobel, and will have its “official” premiere there in the spring of 2012. Some 350 friends and associates attended the special event in La Jolla, which included a family-friendly reception and a performance by the Symphony’s brass quintet followed by “The Sneetches” for two pianos (performed by Jessie Chang and Bryan Verhoye, with narration by Nuvi Mehta), and a post-concert Champagne toast. Celebrity guests filled the audience, including Lorenzo Palomo, who attended the premiere along with North County’s musical Romero family, Symphony board members, Symphony Music Director Jahja Ling (husband of pianist Jessie Chang), and Pam Slater Price, San Diego County Supervisor of District 3.

STUDENT continued from page B17 cess of finishing Life Scout before starting on his Eagle. Within the next six months, Winston School will benefit from his Eagle project when he plants a low-water garden filled with California natives, succulents and Mediterranean plans on the school yard. The project requires that he plan, fundraise, hire workforce, buy materials, install and maintain the garden. Next summer he will return to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, hopefully as a member of

the staff. He set the groundwork when he took two separate trips last summer and completed more than 100 miles of hiking. The first trip was for the National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience, the highest level youth and adult training in scouts. He and 100 other scouts also attend leadership training courses. Of the four courses, he has completed two. Higgins also has a love for the water. He has been scuba diving since 2008 and has completed all the major courses through advanced open and rescue diver. He would also like to get more

involved with the White Sea Bass Project, which works to restore the bass by raising them in a slip and releasing them into the bay. “I’ve only fed the fish once, but I hope to go back again soon,” he said. “The project is working as the bass are now caught as far up as Santa Barbara now and the population is increasing.” When thinking about a college major or a career, Higgins said he has been searching and trying to decide. “I like English and science and am considering careers in video, oceanography, computers, and business.”

Diamond Boutique showed people what it’s like to feel like a million bucks BY CLAIRE HARLIN, EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

Until Jan. 21, at 6 p.m., Diamond Boutique, located in Flower Hill Promenade, gave guests the chance to try on a 18.26-carat, near flawless, round-cut diamond. Some 120 people came through the jeweler’s doors on the first day of the promotion to see, hold, wear and even have their photo taken with the penny-sized gem, bigger than Kim Kardashian’s engagement ring. “A person interested in buying something like this might be an investor,” said Diamond Boutique spokeswoman Denise Mahaffey. “It’s museum quality, but when diamonds like this are in a museum they are behind glass. This [was] a really rare chance to see it up close and hold it.” The first 100 people through the shop’s doors received a voucher for a free floating pearl necklace (worth $135). Malli Digius, the shop’s owner, also gave away the necklace vouchers to a number of nonprofits as door prizes at fundraisers. “Not everyone can afford a $1 million diamond,” said Mahaffey. “But Malli [wanted] everybody to be able to walk away with something.” The Diamond Boutique is located at the Flower Hill Promenade at 2710 Via de la Valle, #B-280, Del Mar, CA, 92014; www.; 858-720-1800.

Danielle Hun came from Coronado to try on Diamond Boutique’s $1 million diamond after hearing about the opportunity on the news.
