Town's first turkey queen dies at 94 By KAREN BRAINARD Ramona’s first turkey queen, Gertrude Page, leaves behind a legacy for her family to cherish. The 94-year-old lifelong Ramona resident died in her home on Jan. 22. “She was just an amazing person that always had a smile and a sparkle in her eyes,” said Ramonan Beebee Wilson, who was Page’s caregiver for the past 3-1/2 years. According to Wilson, Page was a proud Ramonan who loved to talk about her life here, especially in the old days. She was born on June 17, 1918, in Ramona to Mildred and John “Prof” H. Wilson. Her father was principal of Ramona Union High School from 1917 to 1948. When Page was 17 years old, the student body of Ramona High School voted her to be the town’s first turkey queen. “When I was chosen, my mother had the idea of making a cape for me of turkey feathers,” she wrote in a scrapbook. Page told how she and friend Mary Kay Kearney (whose married name was Pinkard) spent hours gathering turkey feathers from the Kearney turkey ranch.

““We felt quite ‘in touch’ with our turkey feather finery,” she wrote. According to newspaper clippings in her scrapbook, 10,000 people turned out for that turkey day in 1935 for a fivehour program that included a parade on a rainy November day. The state senator, Ed Fletcher, presented the citizenship trophy for Ramona, and Page accepted it on behalf of the community. The trophy, awarded by the California Chamber of Commerce, was given to the community that showed the largest percentage of its registered voters casting ballots in the general election in the state. When she accepted the trophy, Page said, “We, the students of the Ramona Union High School, are very proud to have had a small part in such an important service. We believe that in helping to get out the voters, we have learned the value of our rights of franchise.” Page went on to attend college, and after graduating, she married her childhood sweetheart, Fred Page, in 1940. The two met when they were 9 years old and Fred had just moved to Ramona, said their See GERTRUDE PAGE, page 4

County attempts to crack code on community event permits By JESSICA KING Wading through the proverbial red tape got a little easier this month for some Ramona residents who plan community events. In all, 28 people representing local nonprofits attended a Jan. 22 meeting in the west wing of Ramona Town Hall. They attended to better understand the somewhat arduous process of applying for community event permits through the San Diego County Department of Environmental Health.

County Environmental Health Specialist Heather Buonomo talks about community event permits to 28 people representing nonprofit groups during a Tuesday afternoon meeting in Town Hall.

Moderator Heather Buonomo, an environmental health specialist with the county, said the nearly hour-long meeting was part of an ongoing outreach campaign by the county to help San Diego’s unincorporated areas host more community events. “We’re here to help, we want to help,” she said. “The main point is we want to have more events, not less.” Nonprofits represented at the meeting ranged from See EVENTS, page 6

Solar energy project scheduled for supervisors’ vote on Feb. 6 The Sol Orchard proposal to construct a solar energy project at Warnock Drive and Ramona Streets heads to the County Board of Supervisors for a vote on Feb. 6. The project calls for solar panels on 42.7 acres of the 110-acre farm in the 1600 block of Warnock Drive. The owner of the farm would lease the land to Sol Orchard for 25 years. Neighboring residents and the Ramona Community Planning Group (RCPG) have opposed the project, saying it would be incompatible with community character, create visual blight in an agricultural area, and contribute to the loss of prime farmland. The project was approved by the county Planning Commission on Oct. 19. That decision was appealed by the RCPG and Citizens for a Rural

Ramona (CFARR). On behalf of the RCPG, Chair Jim Piva, Vice Chair Scotty Ensign and Secretary Kristi Mansolf plan to give a presentation to the supervisors on the solar farm’s visual impact to neighbors. RCPG member Donna Myers, who lives across from the proposed site, said CFARR would also be making a presentation to the supervisors. In addition, planning group member Matt Deskovick said he hopes to attend and speak against the project, either as a representative of the RCPG or as a resident. The Board of Supervisors meetings begin at 9 a.m. in the County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, Room 310, in San Diego.

Clinic construction ahead of schedule, say health officials By KAREN BRAINARD Palomar Health’s Ramona Ambulatory Care Center is scheduled to open its doors for patient care on March 4 and urgent care should be available on April 1, said health officials. “We’re ahead of schedule,” said Pernell Jones, associate director of Practice Operations for Arch Health Partners, an affiliated physician organization of Palomar Health. “The workers have been phenomenal.” When Palomar Health held its groundbreaking ceremony on June 20, 2012, authorities said they hoped to have the medical clinic on 13th Street completed by April. Dr. Scott Flinn, medical director of Arch Health

Partners, Victoria Lister, Arch Health executive director, and Jones gave an update on the medical clinic to a small group at the Ramona Community Center on Jan. 24. The current Arch Health clinic at 1236 Main St. will move to Palomar’s new one-story, 7,600-squarefoot medical center near the corner of 13th and Main Streets. Initially, the clinic will be open for doctor’s visits from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and for urgent care, 3 to 7 p.m., Mondays through Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Pernell said the urgent care hours were based on the volume of residents from Ramona, Santa Ysabel and neighboring com-

munities at Arch Health’s Poway urgent care. If the demand increases, they will expand hours or open on Sundays, he said. Flinn said that the urgent care will see all types of problems but will not be an emergency room. “The real benefit is you can walk in and be seen,” he said. Noting the difference between the current medical clinic and the new care center, Flinn said, “The real game changer is the availability of X-rays.” The clinic will have radiology services with two X-ray technicians. The Xrays will be digital, instead of film, so results will be more immediate, said Lister. Some lab work will be available at the medical center, but Lab Corp will not move in due to space limitations, said Jones. He added that Lab Corp is considering moving into a location by Albertsons and offering earlier hours. Lister said they hope to bring in specialists, such as a dermatologist, cardiolo-

gist, or orthopedic doctor, to see patients on a halfday basis per week. The clinic will staff six family medicine physicians and another physician for urgent care. More physicians will be added, if needed, said Flinn. Jones said the care center’s soft colors and materials, such as barnwood, were chosen to be reflective of Ramona and the countryside. Anticipating the demand for higher level medical services, the health officials said they hope to eventually expand the new building. Palomar Health has the land to grow the clinic as the current configuration will only cover one acre of health district’s three-acre site. The clinic, which was estimated to cost $6 million, was made possible with the passage of Proposition BB, the nearly $500 million bond measure that district voters approved in 2004. The bond money has also funded the new Palomar Medical Center building in Escondido.

Board drops opposition to road project after meeting with Jacob By KAREN BRAINARD A meeting with County Supervisor Dianne Jacob and county staff on Jan. 22 gave the San Diego Country Estates Association board a better picture of the San Vicente Road project and produced some positive results, according to the board president. “It’s a different picture than what they gave in October. The footprint of the road is not going to change that much. They provided a more in-depth analysis of how the project is going to be,” said SDCEA President Doug Kafka. “We agree that a safer road is a good thing.” A controversy erupted about the San Vicente Road project after the SDCEA board heard a presentation in October 2012 on the county’s plans to begin construction this fall on widening the road and realigning the most dangerous curves. The board included a petition in Estates homeowners’ assessments that opposed the road project, stating such reasons as inconvenient wait times during construction, removal of oak trees, and concerns over speeding once completed. Those who have supported the road improvements, first proposed in the 1990s, were quick to respond, citing the need to make the road safer. Jacob set up a meeting with the board members and SDCE General Manager Mario Trejo and had the project engineers available to go over details of the road improvements.

“I think that we resolved an awful lot of issues,” said Kafka. He believes that the board’s concerns about the road project were misunderstood. “I think the petition that came out was confusing,” he said, adding that as board president he wants to hear both sides. One of the concerns of the SDCEA board was that one lane on San Vicente Road would be closed during some of the construction, and wait times could be 15 to 20 minutes long. Kafka said he learned that the project could be completed in less than two years and lane closures could be just 30 percent of that timeframe. SDCEA board members suggested adding a right turn lane on San Vicente Road heading east at the Wildcat Canyon Road intersection, he said. “They were very receptive to some of our ideas,” said Kafka. As for the removal of about 150 oak trees, Kafka said he understands that to establish a shoulder on the road, some trees will need to be removed, but county staff said they will try to replace as many as they can. In an email, Steve Ron, project manager with the county Department of Public Works, said approximately 5.85 acres of oak habitat will be impacted by the 2.25mile project and the process the county currently is following is in accordance with the project’s California Environmen-

tal Quality Act document and jurisdictional permits. That would require a mitigation ratio of 3:1, or three oaks planted for each one removed, and approximately 14.58 acres

of oak habitat offsite in areas of higher biological value. Proponents for the road improvements are scheduled to meet with Jacob on Feb. 14, said a spokesperson for her office.

Friends of Ramona Library sets date for its Second Annual Trivia Bee Friends of the Ramona Library will hold its second annual Trivia Bee fundraiser in the library’s community room on Saturday, Feb. 23. Two-member teams from various local service and social clubs will compete for a perpetual trophy that is permanently displayed in the library. The game, which was so well-received last year, is similar to television shows like “Jeopardy,” but this year answers will be in a multiple choice format. Also, audience participation will be encouraged by interspersing questions and awarding prizes to them. Tickets for the event are $25 per person and will be on sale at the Friends Book

Store in the library and at Ramona businesses. Watch for display posters. All proceeds from the event will go to fund library programs and to add to the library’s collection of books, periodicals, and DVDs. The evening will begin with a “Special Coffee Tasting and Dessert Pairings” from the new Starbucks. There will be drawings for decorated baskets of gifts as well as a silent auction. “Come join us for a delightful evening and cheer on your favorite organization’s team,” said Joan Gansert, event chair. For information about entering a team, donating a basket or silent auction item, contact Gansert at 760-518-2081.

children. During World War II, Page worked for Ransom Brothers while Fred served in the Army. They built a ranch on the corner of Highland Valley Road and State Route 67 and had two sons, Jan and James, and a daughter, Joan (Jo). Ramonan Ron Rodolff said when he and Jan were Cub Scouts, Page was his den mother. “She was like my mom. She was always someone you could depend on,” Rodolff said. Around 1948, Page and several close friends, including Mary Kay Pinkard, Cynthia Kunkel, Lucille Hager, Caroline Raymond, Marge Butters, Helen Jones, and Ida Vee Morgan, started up a monthly bridge group that lives on today in a new generation. A story about their group, titled “Six Decades Later…Bridge Club Refuses to Throw in the Cards,” was featured in the Sentinel’s May 31, 2012, issue, with Pinkard, Page, and Kunkel—the remaining members—still meeting and socializing, along with

Kunkel, who was 97 then, lives in Poway. The loyal and longlasting friendship that the original bridge club members shared is enjoyed by their daughters. “We’re still best friends,” Page’s daughter, Jo Wood, said of her childhood friends. “It was an incredible time to grow up. It’s a gift you hand your child.” The daughters and now

granddaughters of the original members continue to meet monthly. Wood, who lives in Florida, said she gets back about every other month. Page worked as a teacher’s aide to Esther McDonald at Ramona Elementary School, and then as secretary to Glae McDonald, the school’s principal, before retiring. She and her husband were involved in many organizations and served on community boards. They were also ac-

tive in the First Congregational Church of Ramona. Fred, who owned the Santa Maria Cabinet Shop, died in 1990. They had moved into Ramona Terrace Estates mobile home park in 1971, and that is where Page lived until her death. “She didn’t need much help. She was very independent. She was a strong woman who I’ll miss,” said Beebee Wilson, who is not related to Page’s family. “She never had one bad thing to say about anybody. She lived a good life. She taught me a lot.” According to Page’s children, their mother enjoyed

her family above all, loved crafts, drama, and music, was an avid reader, and “could knit or crochet anything.” “There are many homes throughout Ramona that hold her handiwork and his (Fred’s) woodcrafting,” they said. Page’s son, Jim, still lives in Ramona, and son Jan lives in Washington. Page had six grandchildren and three greatgrandchildren. The family was still making arrangements, as many members live out of state, but said a service is planned tentatively for March 9.

In her 10 years with the county, Buonomo said she has never seen an event shut down but some have been ordered to scale back when requirements are not met. To avoid a scaledown, she suggested organizers apply for their permit 30 to 60 days before the event. Do not wait until less than 30 days until the event, she cautioned. “The message we want to get out is we’re here to help you … we want to be sure you have the event that you want, that is successful,” said Buonomo. Hazel Thompson, a Tupperware consultant and Ramona Farmers Market vendor, said the permit process for a firsttimer can be intimidating but it gets easier with time and the meeting was helpful to her. However, one thing Buonomo said the county cannot give nonprofits permission for is to involve alcohol in their events. Nonprofits must deal with the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control for that, she said. To learn more about the community event permit, visit www.sdcdeh.org.

Russell L. Braxtan 1951 – 2013

Russ, 61, passed away January 21, 2013. He was born April 19, 1951, in Waukegan, IL, to Charles L. Braxtan and Marguerite Braxtan. His father was in the U.S. Navy and they moved to San Diego when Russell was a young child. He attended Clairemont High School and later received his Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from SDSU. After college he was employed as a land surveyor in western Colorado, his travels taking him all over the continental divide. Later he transitioned into sales as a frozen foods distributor for Schwan’s, specializing in Red Barron Pizza. A management promotion in 1986 brought him to Northern California, where he had another career shift, this time into sales for the medical research industry. For the past decade he has owned his own business, which sold and installed equipment to the

medical research industry. He married Mary O’Rourke (Braxtan) in 1996 and they moved to Ramona in 1999. Together they have two children, Carter Braxtan (15 years) and Riley Braxtan (12 years). Russ has two children from prior marriages, Henry “Hank” (Arielle Brachfeld) Braxtan of Grand Junction, CO, and Courtney Braxtan of Ft. Collins, CO. Russ is also survived by his mother, Marguerite Braxtan; and brothers, Randall and Jimmy. Russ enjoyed living in Ramona as he loved the country wildlife in the area. He was an avid sports enthusiast, playing baseball, football and ice hockey through his life and coaching his sons in both soccer and baseball in Ramona for 9 years. He continued to support baseball and soccer at the travel circuit and high school levels. He was renowned for not only his knowledge, but his quick wit and sarcasm. A Memorial Service was held on Saturday, January 26, 2013. Bonham Bros & Stewart Mortuary and Cremation Service is assisting the family.

THURSDAY JANUARY 31, 2013

Phyllis Pfeiffer Publisher

Letters Misdirected and unhelpful perspectives OK, so the Ramona Sentinel publishes a reader’s opinion, “A Modest Proposal for Ramona Unified School District & Citizens of Ramona.” This premise of imaginary social malaise is such a misdirected and unhelpful perspective about the future of Ramona’s educational system. Are the current financial, labor, and physical conditions of our schools a joke to you? Yes, the commentary briefly addresses the flagrant, reckless, and possible fraudulent behavior of a previous superintendent. Along with his accomplice “rubberstamp” school board members, they took out an unsecured conventional loan; under the noses of every Ramona citizen; to build and remodel two schools without any approval from the teachers — RTA, or PTA parents. Maybe they got a kickback? Ha ha I feel your editorial staff has disrespected and diminishes the hourly, weekly, and often weekend efforts for excellence that every Ramona teacher puts forth every day. After reaching 20 years of serving our children in public education, I do not appreciate your editorial license to publish such tongue-in-cheek sarcasm about our children’s future. So, I must offer this tempered response, on behalf of my students and families. It is disappointing and disillusioning to witness the slanted, censored flavor of reporting which the Sentinel appears to exercise regarding our administration’s performance with regards to better informing the public about the seriousness of the district’s management over its financial, property management, security and labor issues. Here’s an African adage to remember — “It only takes two people to create a child, but it takes an entire village to raise them.” Whose kid is going to be the next one who goes insane and takes it out on innocent children? A teacher will be standing there. Then, alongside ”Modest Proposal,” you print the letter, “Let’s discuss school security,” which is based upon such an inaccurate survey approach to suggest that society can now tell teachers to maintain weapons at school – without talking to us teachers first? Ludicrous and offensive information. I will also forward copy of my concerns to the Ramona Teachers Association, so they’ll know that more and more teachers are getting fed up with misinformed local citizens. Daniel Wise Barnett Elementary School

Teachers have no reason to complain I am writing in response to the story on Thursday, 1/24/13, regarding the teachers union. I would like remind the school board, the community and particularly the teachers union that teachers have absolutely no reasons to complain about anything — particularly pay and compensation. Teachers get paid (pretty darn well, too) to work less than eight months out of the year. They get nearly three months off during the summer. This past holiday break they got two weeks off, they got a week off at Thanksgiving, and they get a week off during Spring break. That doesn’t include the days they get off for Martin Luther King Day and President’s Day. Oh, and you know what else? I just found out that they get February 15th off, too — Lincoln Day. The Europeans don’t even have it this good. This fails to take into account that the rest of us who work in the private sector not only pay for our own See MORE LETTERS, page 9

A better approach to gun control By RON PETERKA A lot of outcry against gun ownership has risen recently, especially after the Newtown, Conn., shooting. A lot of folks don’t seem to know that California already has a relatively unknown gun control program that is far more rational that just outlawing a particular type of weapon, although that process defines an illegal weapon. Currently a person can purchase a perfectly legal weapon and at some time in the future be convicted of a felony which prohibits possessing a gun. A person can purchase a gun

Guest Commentary and later have a mental meltdown, or a restraining order prohibiting gun possession can be issued to a person who might be a registered gun owner. California Attorney General Kamala Harris has initiated a program named the Armed Prohibited Persons System (APPS), which compares each new felony conviction, restraining order, or mental instability incident to the state gun registry, and a deputy contacts that person physically as soon as possible to verify that the gun has

been removed from that person or it is confiscated. No legal gun owner is inconvenienced and no legally owned weapons are confiscated. In 2012, the attorney general ordered two sixweek sweeps, the first aimed at incidents of mental instability, and the second against newly convicted felons. The results were astounding! A total of 2,033 guns, 117,000 rounds of ammunition, and 11,072 illegal high capacity magazines were confiscated. The data base is available to local police departments who can check suspects who are found with a gun against the APPS data base in moments. If this APPS data base were a national database, then instead of 2,000 guns in one

year, we could remove many thousands of guns from the hands of those who reasonably might be expected to use them in commission of a crime. I first heard of this program on a PBS radio program, but there doesn’t seem to be any national awareness of this program or any politician advocating anything like this, and no recognition of a similar program. So, I am writing to as many newspapers, politicians, and columnists to make them aware of what I consider a very rational and reasonable program . I really don’t believe banning one or another type of gun, ammo, or magazine will be as effective as getting in the face of someone who is not allowed to possess a firearm and verifying it. Ron Peterka is a Ramona resident.

Consequences of women in combat Our Secretary of Defense has decided to allow women in combat roles. This will translate directly to requiring women to register with the selective service for a possible draft notice into the armed forces. This is due to a Supreme Court decision in 1981, Rostker v. Goldberg. This article talks about it: csmonitor.com/USA/Military/2013/0123/Women-in-combat-Will-they-have-toregister-for-the-draft. Please contact your political representatives and federal and state levels to express your opinion of this. A constitutional amendment, preserving the right of women to choose to be in the military or not is not excessive. A short-term solution would be to reverse Mr. Panetta’s decision. I understand that part of the reasoning to allow women in combat roles is so the highest ranks can be open for women. Also, some people think women in combat is fine. However, in our political and legal framework, the consequence will be that your daughters and granddaughters can be drafted. Paul Spencer Ramona

Drivers, not the road, are at fault Let’s get real about San Vicente Road: Seldom are roads really at fault. Engineers design them, contractors build them with supervision and inspection, and the public makes use of them. What is at fault is the drivers who are either ill-prepared, negligent, drunk/drugged/sleepy, etc. I have driven that curvy, challenging route since I was a kid in the early ‘50s. Then, it was merely graded DG and often rutted. It was always thus. Local guys loved to do power slides on it, and, at time, they came to grief. So be it. I have seldom had to travel at a low speed on San Vicente; an occasional slow truck can cause that, but otherwise it is a worthy, well-maintained road, and $30 million or $40 million is way too much to “fix” it. Perhaps more radar enforcement is the key. The two sisters who perished during a rainstorm were speeding, and the result was predictable: novice driver, celebration over a successful athletic event, a carefree attitude, and death. Again, don’t blame the road. The girl who recently survived was not driving in accordance with conditions, or was not really experienced. Years ago, I had a good laugh when, for the third time, near the T-intersection of Wildcat and San Vicente, a driver, on the STRAIGHT portion, went far to the right, off San Vicente Road, and hit a mature oak tree at least 12-15 feet out of the way. A local wag posted a sign on the tree: “Oak tree - 3, Drivers - 0.” Then, our brilliant county cut the poor tree down. Posting “Radar speed enforcement” signs, and pricey tickets to match, should do the trick for that falsely-accused road; the CHP and Jerry Brown can use the money. A.G. Smith Ramona

By MICHAEL BERND

Dr. ROBERT D. ARGYELAN I must be getting old. I remember when the sanctity of life was more important than the preservation of a tree, even 150 trees, all of which are a renewable resource, unlike that of a human life. I also remember when we listened to each other, communicated our thoughts, and found satisfaction in working to find resolution to differences of opinion through honest discourse. I read with interest the discussion of the San Vicente Road improvements and found myself agreeing more with the expressions of Mr. Spencer, Ms. DaSilva and Mr. Loranger for they embrace more greatly an understanding of the need for changes to be made to this roadway. Like Mr. Spencer—both he and I served as presidents of the San Diego Country Estates Association in the past—I appreciate the right of the association’s board of directors to take a position on community development. Like he also, I recognize that a position contrary to road improvements is only the opinion of four of the five members of the board of directors and not necessarily a reflection of the opinions of the people who reside in the Estates. Homeowners were not queried as to what it is that they want with regard to the road. Rather, they received only a petition that argued in opposition to improvements. Perhaps the public might have been better served had the board of directors educated their homeowners rather than merely try to influence them to agree with the opinion of the board. However, a petition in opposition is what homeowners received and it cited the board’s rational in asking for signatures of support. The petition recognized that the speed limit would not change from its current cap. It made the assumption that a straighter road, one without the current dangerous curves, would encourage greater speed rather than making the assumption that such a road improvement would decrease the cause for many of the accidents which have occurred on the road over the course of many years. The board in its petition cited that the improvements would include a horse and bicycle trail, but then made the assumption that no horse or rider would want to travel alongside cars traveling at 50 mph. They did so rather See ARGYELAN, page 10

I am writing this letter in response to Mr. Cahak’s opinion piece regarding the San Vicente Road project in the Jan. 24 issue of the Ramona Sentinel. There are many reasons for road improvements on San Vicente Road, but I cannot and will not be bullied into supporting something that I do not agree with by Mr. Cahak, or the county. In his opinion piece in the Ramona Sentinel, Mr. Cahak gives readers a false choice between the beautiful oak trees that line San Vicente Road and people’s lives. I reject this choice because it is akin to blaming the gun in the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., or blaming the gun in the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting, rather than putting the blame where it belongs — on the unstable individual. Many of us who have been born in Ramona, or have lived here for a long time, understand that the winding mountain roads are part of the charm of this community. We may also have lost friends or family members to these roads. In my short 35 years I have lost three friends, all of which were due to excessive speeds. In fact, most of the fatalities on San Vicente are due to speeding or driving with a false sense of confidence. On March 24, 2011, a 22-year-old man lost control of his car and flipped it several times on San Vicente Road. There were no witnesses and no other cars on the road. The CHP would not confirm the cause of the fatality, but agreed that it was probably caused by speeding. Jan. 23, 2012, a 19-year-old woman loses control of her car and slams into a propane truck heading in the opposite direction. According to the CHP, the fatality occurred because she was speeding. Nov. 11, 2012, a 55-year-old man was killed after being ejected from his motorcycle. Again, according to CHP accident investigators, the fatality was caused by speeding. I understand that these are only a few examples, but what they all have in common is unsafe speeds on a winding mountain road. The San Vicente Road project is estimated to cost the county $40 million as well as take two years to complete. As we have seen in other examples of government projects, they take longer to complete than estimated, and cost significantly more as well. I point to SANDAG projects like the I-15 for an example of this. I am opposed to this project for several reasons, least See BERND, page 10

A mist story for the New Year By DENNIS L. PRICE, Ph.D., M. A., M.Div., M.A. “Why you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” James 4:14 (New International Version)

The coastal eddy dissipated, the fog lifted, revealing the coastline of San Diego. The waves splashed upon the sun-bathed, sandy beaches­— people relaxed for another day in paradise. What will that paradise eventually become on some tomorrow? Could the concrete domes of the nearby San Onofre power plant contain the answer? Are we presiding over a threat to the environment that cannot be sensed by taste, touch, smell, sight,

or sound—fundamentally mysterious in nature? Are we building toward a mysterious catastrophe in the mist of our time? Is there a doleful foghorn sounding a warning somewhere? The time to sound a warning is short before we vanish from this earth. Can we see enough through the mist of our brief, busy lives to identify this insensible problem? The Missed Story The stewardship issue of the atomic bomb is obvious. Our physical senses all are activated by the explosion of a nuclear bomb. The stench from Hiroshima lingers long. The massive destructive power of nuclear weaponry requires substantial restraint. We fear that ideologies and egos will run rampant and someone will push the wrong button. We see

that specter in the mist. No mystery here. Not so obvious, evidently, is the restraint required for nuclear energy generation. The media sometimes presents nuclear power as the green solution to the world’s energy needs. In some countries such as France, the majority of their electrical energy comes from nuclear power plants. The world proceeds ahead with nuclear power, seemingly oblivious to the problems created for a distant tomorrow. Out of sight; out of mind. But danger looms. On July 9, 2004, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit sounded a warning in the fog. Few have heard the peel of its See PRICE, page 14

of which is the reality of another Cedar Creek or Witch Creek fire. In Mr. Cahak’s opinion piece, he opines that the fire danger in the backcountry is gone because there is nothing left to burn. I assure you, and according to Cal Fire, there is still plenty of danger regarding another wildfire. For Mr. Cahak to make that statement based on his own opinion and emotions contradicts everything Cal Fire and the Forestry Service are saying. It is irresponsible for Mr. Cahak to use that as an argument in favor of the road project. Mr. Cahak also claims that the California Highway Patrol will not, and cannot enforce the speed limit due to safety concerns. I am not sure what these concerns are. If the main reason for not enforcing the speed limit is due to a

From page 9 lack of places to park a CHP patrol car, then I am confused as to what more is needed. Anyone who has driven the road knows there are places to park a patrol car. For example, the turnout where kettle corn and avocados are sold has plenty of room. The driveway at the intersection of Wildcat Canyon Road and San Vicente Road, Chuck Wagon Road, and the Barnett preserve driveway are a few more examples. The mere sight of a CHP car in any of those spots would be enough to slow people down. If road safety is the true issue, why aren’t cheaper alternatives being tested before we embark on a multimillion dollar project? Most people may not realize that when travelling eastbound toward the country club, the speed limit slows to 45 miles

per hour. This has always perplexed me because the road is straighter in that section, yet the winding part of San Vicente heading westbound has a speed limit of 50 miles per hour. Do we not owe it to ourselves to be fiscally responsible and attempt to find a cheaper alternative than to just rip the road up and reengineer it? The lowering of the speed limit to 45 or even 40 miles per hour, and the placement of CHP patrol cars in those locations would be a much cheaper alternative to a road project that will take two or more years to complete, cost millions of dollars, and add ten or fifteen minutes to our commute out of the Estates. That is if the road is even navigable during the

construction. If for some reason it is not, everyone in the San Diego Country Estates is forced to use Vista Ramona to commute. This could be fatal if we were to have another wildfire during this project. Furthermore, according to the Department of Public Works, upon completion of the San Vicente Road project, the speed limit would actually increase! That makes no sense to someone who drives that road every day. Mr. Cahak argues that a higher speed limit is acceptable, because four miles of San Vicente Road will be straighter. I question Mr. Cahak’s motivation for a project that doesn’t address the true problem. Speeding! He also blames the roads for the low property values of

our homes. The winding roads have as much to do with our property values as the wind has to do with someone tripping on a step. If I could, I’d like to borrow a statement from James Carville as I think he has summed it up the best. “It’s the economy, stupid!” As for the comment about a duty to the public welfare, I agree with Mr. Cahak, that is why I drive slower and in control on these roads. Unfortunately Mr. Cahak will judge me harshly for disagreeing with him about this project and that is fine, but in this great country we have the right to disagree and voice our opinions as well. In summation, I have outlined an alternative to this time-consuming, inconveniencing, and costly project.

Reduce the speed limit by 5 to 10 miles per hour, and park patrol cars in the places I’ve listed. Part of the beauty of this town in which we live is the rural setting, and the fact that we are not Poway north. I am not choosing oak trees over lives, but what I suggest is a movement back toward personal responsibility. Apparently, the new culture of America is to react hastily anytime a tragedy strikes. Let us not be so ignorant as to blame the road for a fatal car crash, let us blame the true causes — speeding, alcohol, false confidence — and let us also remember our slogan, “Slow down in our country town.” Michael Bernd, a Ramona native, is a San Diego Country Estates Association member.

than assuming that equestrian riders train their horses for such roadway conditions as evidenced by the scores of horseback riders in the Estates who trail ride along both Gunn Stage and San Vicente roads where vehicles travel at speeds far greater than 50 mph. I would guess that those same riders would not mind the opportunity to ride down to Barnett Preserve and enjoy another piece of the local geography. The board’s petition also cited construction costs of $40 million. Such funds are being paid for by SANDAG and the county through past collection of transportation taxes and is not a new cost to anyone living in Ramona. If there is one point of agreement with the board, it would be on the project requirement mandating that the Ra-

mona Municipal Water District assume the $5M+ cost of moving pipeline to accommodate the road improvement. The board would be wise to work with RMWD to explore the possibility of shifting that cost back to local government as part of the improvement rather than shifting that cost to water ratepayers. There certainly may be an inconvenience to us all as road improvements are made; perhaps it might be negotiated that those improvements be made at less inconvenient times of the day. And, yes, those improvements will entail the removal of large and old oak trees which, while beautiful, are too close to even the current roadway. As the road improvements are made, its edges will be brought to another tree line while new trees will be planted for each one removed.

The road improvements, it should be noted, should not be viewed as an affront to the lifestyle of those living in the Estates but rather as a benefit to the residents who live along San Vicente Road and to the safety of all those who travel its course. Past boards of the association have repeatedly expressed concerns to the county about the safety of the road in asking that improvements be made. That road has taken too many lives, regardless of cause, that anyone should consider action opposing safety improvements. I must be getting old because I remember when even one life would have be worth the sacrifice of any such temporary inconvenience. Dr. Robert D. Argyelan is a Ramona resident.

The Crime Triangle In Crime Prevention the goal is to prevent crime — to remove one or more sides from the potential crime triangle that allows

innocent people to become victims. The three parts of the Crime Triangle are easy to understand — Victim,

Criminal, and Opportunity. Removing just one of these factors prevents us from becoming a victim. Start with yourself and your family. What can you do to prevent becoming a victim of crime? Locking and securing our homes and vehicles is a good habit to develop. A majority of the vehicle and home burglaries are through UNLOCKED doors and windows. We can’t allow ourselves to be lulled into a false sense of security that it can’t happen to us. The simple action of lock-

ing out the criminals can make a big difference. Think about your daily activities and ask yourself what potentially dangerous situations could occur. Is there something you could change that would make life safer for you and your loved ones? A criminal is always looking for that easy opportunity to take advantage of someone. You can reduce their opportunity to be successful criminals by not leaving your valuable property unattended. Some simple ways to reduce “opportunities” are:

Pennings. “Due to her unsafe speed for the conditions, she failed to maintain control of the vehicle,” he said. As she approached a left-hand curve, the vehicle went off onto a dirt embankment on the northside of the road, returned to the roadway and rolled onto the roof, reported the officer. She was wearing a seatbelt, he said. Pennings also noted that the Escape “had less than sufficient tread on the tires,” but the primary cause of the accident was unsafe speed. She was transported to the hospital by Ramona Fire Department/Cal Fire.

Goodwill to remove blue container Representatives from Goodwill Industries have come up with a solution to its big blue container on Ramona Street that meets the approval of the Ramona Design Review Group. The Goodwill store at Main and Ramona streets had used the blue container for donation drop-off and storage, but the majority of design review members said

it detracted from the community and did not comply with county code. Goodwill representatives said they will remove the container and create an area in the back of its building, hidden behind a chainlink fence with privacy slots, to store donations. Donations also will be accepted inside the store, they said.

not conducive to criminal activity — so the criminals would have to find something else to do with their time and energy! Working together we can reduce the amount of theft and other crime in Ramona. Call the Sheriff’s Department at 760-7891200 if you see suspicious activity. Don’t wait for “someone else” to call — you may be the person who prevents a crime from occurring! Call Crime Prevention Specialist Barbara Wallace if you have any questions at 760-738-2425

Unsafe speed in rain contributes to rollover accident, says CHP A 17-year-old female was transported to Pomerado Hospital after the vehicle she was driving rolled onto its roof on San Vicente Road just east of Wildcat Canyon Road late Friday afternoon, reported California Highway Patrol. The girl complained of pain in her neck and back, said CHP Public Information Officer Brian Pennings. No other persons or vehicles were involved in the accident. The rollover occurred at 4:25 p.m. in rainy conditions. The teenager was driving a 2012 white Ford Escape westbound on a wet San Vicente Road approximately 45 mph, said

•Close and lock your garage door, •Keep your screen door locked if you want fresh air in your home, •Don’t leave bicycles and skateboards unlocked on your front porch, and •Take all valuables out of your vehicle and lock the doors.

If we actually eliminate potential crime opportunities and we heighten our awareness so we don’t become victims, then we essentially would have a community

The importance of dental care for your furry best friend(s): Like people, our pets are prone to dental disease. National Pet Dental Month, in February, focuses on the importance of controlling and preventing dental disease in cats and dogs. Untreated dental disease is associated with both infection and pain. Studies in people, dogs and cats show that untreated infection in the mouth can lead to infections in other parts of their bodies.

Among Arriba Teen Center Board members are, from left, Vice President Jason Carney, President Kim Lasley, Director Jake Doomey, and Secretary Nancy Roy. The teen center, open three days a week, is at 1710 Montecito Road.

Skateboard business owners join Arriba Teen Center Board Jason Carney and Jake Doomey, owners of Slappy’s Skateboard Garage at 944 A St., have joined Arriba Teen Center Board, Carney as vice president and Doomey as a director. “We would like to see this place grow,” Doomey said at the board’s Jan. 24 meeting in the teen center at 1710 Montecito Road. As board members, they can be more involved in center activities, he said, adding that he and Carney, a professional skateboarder, have “a lot of ideas.” One of them combines their passion for skateboarding with local interest in establishing a skateboard park in Ramona. They’ve been working on the possibility of a skateboard park in town for the past two years, they said.

Also during the meeting, Kim Lasley was re-elected Arriba board president, Nancy Roy will continue as board secretary, and Sharon Greene will continue as treasurer. Joe Baima, an adult volunteer at the center, is in charge of public relations. Also on the board are directors Liz Schaude, Dawn Perfect, Katie Baima, Barbara Wallace, and Milly Utech. The teen center is open on a drop-in basis to all middle school and high school students from 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The center would be open more days and hours if it had more adult volunteers. For more information about the center or about volunteering, call the center at 760-788-6443 or Lasley at 760-7881438.

Student brings camel for show and tell Warner Unified School District teacher Mindy Wong was slightly stunned when her third-grade student, Harrison Staker-Littrel, asked if he could bring his 800-pound camel, Ava, to school for show and tell. Wong sensed a learning opportunity for the entire school and gave her consent. Two days later, Ava was the guest of honor at Warner Spring’s kindergarten through 12th-grade campus of 202 students. Ava lives on the Staker-Littrel ranch in Chihuahua Valley near Warner Springs. Her visit to school was a short detour from a trip to Los Angeles where she had a paying gig as a supporting cast member in a Christmas nativity scene. Harrison’s dad, Jeff Littrel, transported Ava to school and delivered a detailed presentation about camels. Students learned that camels can drink salt water, have three stomachs, and “one-hump” camels—dromedary camels—no longer exist in the wild.

doleful, two-pitch warning notes. First higher pitch, the court declared that nuclear waste is a danger that must be contained, isolated from the environment—a warning tone not unexpected. The second doleful, lower note sounded by the court is more difficult to hear. After listening to the arguments of scientists, the court declared: Nuclear waste must be isolated from the environment for a million years. A million years! What are we doing now in the midst of our lives that could be inflicting harm to the environment for a million years? Long-lived, radioactive isotopes prevail in the nuclear waste we produce for power and energy. Today, the existing U.S. nuclear power plants together produce 2,000 metric tons of toxic, radioactive waste per year. If 2000 metric tons of typical spent fuel rods were laid end-to-end, they would just about reach from San Diego to Chicago. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has announced it expects to receive applications to build 32 new nuclear power plants in the next few years. Two of these are at the start of construction. When the 32 new plants come online, the toxic wastes

will total about 2,600 metric tons per year, over 7 metric tons per day. There are already over 65,000 metric tons of spent fuel and high-level defense waste that must be isolated from the environment for a million years. That is enough tonnage to fill a football field to a height of over 21 feet. Every day we add tons to the total, awaiting preparation for isolation from the environment for a million years. The problem is no one really knows how to ensure isolation for so long a period of time­—how to do it—let alone where to do it. The basic idea for nuclear waste isolation is to combine natural and engineered barriers. The natural barriers are supposed to be found in some location where there is room for deep geologic burial away from ground water and population centers. Today, no one can say where that is. The engineered barriers are storage containers made of modern metals. Today, we do not know how modern metals will act over a million years. In short, we do not know where or how to do what the courts require. In the interim, utilities now store waste generally on-site, at San Onofre and the other locations of power

plants. On-site spent fuel pools are filling rapidly and dry cask storage room outside the pools is diminishing. In a few short years there will be no more room at the power plants. Tomorrow is coming soon. It is already 2013. ******** We cannot wait for some technology of the future to solve the problem we are creating under our stewardship. The power and energy of radioactive isotopes are treasures in our care now. Tomorrow might be too late. “Why you do not even know what will happen tomorrow.” James 4:14a (NIV)

See through the mist the missed story before we vanish and our children inherit the mysterious, insensible, radioactive threat of nuclear waste. Is it moral to keep on going the way we are going? We must solve the problem of nuclear waste in our time. ******** The Rev. Dr. Dennis L. Price, a Ramona resident, is author of “Chasing the Fourth Horse,” available on Amazon.com. He was appointed by President Ronald Reagan and President George H. W. Bush to successive terms on the U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board.

Lutheran church to host financial planning seminar Ramona Lutheran Church will host a financial planning seminar featuring Doug Jennings, an estate and tax planning lawyer and certified public accountant, on Saturday, Feb. 9. The presentation, open to the public, will start at 9 a.m. at the church, 520 16th St. Depending on the length of the question and answer period, it may last up to three hours. Jennings is president and founder of his firm, the Law Office of J. Douglass Jennings Jr. On his professional staff are CPA/attorneys and CPAs. His presentation will focus on wills, living trusts, endowments, and taxation in light of current events in the nation. “Even if you have such a legal instrument already,

it is wise to listen to an expert in this vital area of your life, especially if it has been a few years since it was drafted or there have been a few life changes in your circumstances since it was drafted,” event organizers said. “You may benefit from some new information and require updating your current document. "If you do not have a will or trust, this will be your chance to ensure that the state of California will not decide who will raise your children or how to distribute your assets.” Admission is free. A continental breakfast will be provided. Those planning to attend must reserve a spot by Tuesday, Feb. 5, at the church office, 760-7891367.

Mountain Valley Academy students stage ‘Into the Woods Jr.’ Are you ready for a trip Into the Woods? Well, you’re in luck, because Mountain Valley Academy is putting on a production of “Into the Woods Jr.,” a shorter adaption to the musical classic by Stephen Sondheim and James LePine, says Amy Krause, who directs the show. Show dates and times are Thursday through Saturday, Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 and 2, at 7 p.m., with a matinee at 2 p.m. on Feb. 2. All of the shows will be in the Ramona High School Performing Arts Wing (PAW) at 1401 Hanson Lane. Tickets will be sold at the door for $6 each or $25 for a family of five or more.

“Into the Woods” is a theatrical musical originally directed on Broadway by James Lepine. The play takes place in the dense and mysterious

woods where there are three people who so desperately want their one wish to come true. “This is a riveting play about the hard work and

determination that is necessary to make your heart’s wishes come true,” said Krause, adding it “takes the best of both worlds with its classic storybook

characters like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Jack from Jack and the Bean Stalk and combines their stories with a true lesson that is

to be learned from all the characters. Through their efforts and follies, they live happily ever after—I wish.”Co-director is Victoria Nored.

The sister team of harpist Anna Maria Mendieta and flamenco dancer Suzanne Mendieta will take center stage for the Ramona Concert Association on Feb. 2. The evening’s program is sure to please all tastes, with nostalgic Latin melodies, sultry Argentine tangos by Piazzolla, fiery Spanish classical favorites and even some Broadway, said Marlene Robershaw, association president Anna Maria Mendieta is

a soloist, orchestral musician, recording artist, and teacher. The principal harpist with the Sacramento Philharmonic and the Sacramento Opera, she plays with orchestras and chamber music groups across the country. She began studying the harp at age 7, attended the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and serves on the faculty of Notre Dame de Namur University. She has performed for National Hispanic Week

in Washington, D.C., and as soloist with Theater Flamenco. She is recognized as a pioneer, performing Argentine Tango music on the harp, and she has appeared on TV, movies, National Public Radio and the Emmy Awards. She has performed with Frank Sinatra Jr., Josh Groban and Barry Manilow, who calls her “my favorite harpist.” She has performed for world leaders, kings and wueens, and presidents of Russia and the U.S.

Suzanne Mendieta, a classically trained dancer in ballet and flamenco, will accompany her sister in many selections. A member of many ballet companies and San Francisco Opera productions, she has been a featured dancer in China, Europe and Spain, where she performed for the 1992 World Expo. She also has appeared in film and on TV. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Charles R. Nunn Performing Arts Cen-

ter at Olive Peirce Middle School, 1521 Hanson Lane. The doors will open at 7 p.m. for seating. Tickets at the door are $15 for adults and $5 for children and students.

During November and December, the Scouts earned their “Feed Your Neighbor” patch from the San Diego Girl Scout Council. Working within the “Discover, Connect, Take Action” framework of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, the Scouts completed several hunger awareness activities, hosted a food drive, and toured the San Diego Food Bank. Although they did not reach their goal of 500 pounds, they were excited to deliver the 228 pounds collected directly to the

Delivering food to San Diego Food Bank are, from left, Girl Scout Troop No. 8009 members Kelly Seweryn, Ashley Hively, Hannah Rockwell, Emma Van Zandt, Isabel Cervantes, Janee Doomey, and Jade Shaw. Standing with them is Monica with San Diego Food Bank.

San Diego Food Bank at 9850 Distribution Ave. in San Diego, said their leader, Danielle Shaw. While there, they took a one-hour tour of the facility and learned about the many programs made pos-

sible by the Food Bank. “Our troop would like to thank WJ Bradley Mortgage Capital, Ramona Real Estate, One Stop Rentals, and Albertsons for their support in our food drive,” said Shaw.

Boys soccer improves record with 2 more wins By JOE NAIMAN Ramona High School’s boys soccer team improved its overall season record to 16-1-2 and its Valley League record to 4-0 with wins Jan. 22 at home against Valley Center and Jan. 24 at Del Norte. The Bulldogs defeated Valley Center by a 3-2 score and Del Norte by a 3-0 margin. Valley Center High School opened in 1998. Like Ramona, it is the only school in its town, and the communities have similar demographics. “Valley Center is always kind of a rival school for us, always has been,” said coach Michael Jordan. “We always know there’s going to be the extra intensity in that game.” The Jan. 22 match was

Garcia had to send the ball across his body to make Photo courtesy of Michael Jordan a left-footed Andy Garcia displays patience and skill volley which as co-captain of the soccer team. went into the net. no exception.

ie Jesse Bonilla blocked a midfielder’s shot only to send the ball to a Valley Center forward who scored the equalizer. The score remained 1-1 through the halftime whistle. The Bulldogs regained the lead after Ricky Rodriguez took the ball down the right side before playing the ball to the other side of the field. A Valley Center defender was successful in gaining possession of the ball, but not as successful in trying to clear it. Alex Medina jumped up, and the clear attempt went off Medina’s body and into the goal. “It was just Alex being Alex,” Jordan said. “He tries so hard and doesn’t back down.” Ramona’s final goal was scored when Garcia passed to Abraham Ca-

brera, who had been running down the left side before receiving Garcia’s pass. Cabrera converted the opportunity into a 3-1 Ramona lead. The Jaguars scored late in the second half but could not tie the game. Del Norte entered the Jan. 24 game in third place in the league standings. “We knew that they were going to have skill,” Jordan said. The Bulldogs took a 2-0 halftime lead. Medina and Garcia each scored while assisting on each other’s goals. Medina’s goal was his 17th of the season. The second-half goal was derived from Schmidt playing the ball to Alex Nastre, who then placed the ball across the box to Cabrera. Cabrera then scored the goal.

“It was something we had just worked on in practice the previous day, so it was nice they were able to take that and put it into a game situation,” Jordan said. The shutout was the 10th of the season for Bonilla. “Double-digit shutouts, that’s something special for him and his defense,” Jordan said. The defense of sweeper Kiko Valencia, outside defenders Aedan Maruna, and David Soto, and stopper Colin Uekert only required Bonilla to make four saves. “The defense played well-organized and communicated well,” Jordan said. If weather permits, the Bulldogs will open the second round of league play Thursday, Jan. 31, at Mission Vista.

Girls basketball remains undefeated in Valley League

By BILL TAMBURRINO

Ramona High girls basketball team remained undefeated last week in the Valley League, ending the second week of play in first place with a 4-0 record. The Bulldog girls beat Valley Center in their tuneup for a showdown with Del Norte. In the showdown, Ramona used a stifling defense and unselfish team play to beat Del Norte 52-43 and take sole possession of first place. Del Norte’s head coach, Jake McNeely, summed up the showdown after the game: “Our strength is to get the ball to Lexi (Reddick) and Caitlyn (Cole) in the paint to score. Ramona took that away from us with a tough defense. They were able to score from all over the court. Our strength is not our outside shooting. They were able to shoot from outside and they forced us to play their game.” “Our battle cry for this game was Rebound! Re-

bound! Rebound!” said a very happy Ramona coach Dan Marshall. “This team is fun to coach. They play hard and do what it takes to win. Christina (Barrameda) was ill with the flu but she played her heart out. Every girl did her job on defense and offense. We took away their big girls in the paint and got the rebounds when they shot from outside. Coach Scheib’s defensive game plan worked to a tee.” Niki Spring led all scor-

physical and that paid off for us.” The game was tied at the end of the first quarter and Ramona’s defense got stingy. The Lady Dawgs outscored Valley Center 18-2 in the second quarter and led 33-17 at intermission. Turnabout is fair play. In the third quarter, Valley Center went on a 13-2 run to make it a 35-30 game before Mauldin hit a 3-point shot to end the period and give Ramona a 38-30 cushion. Both teams pressed in the final period, but it was a defensive adjustment that ensured the victory for the Bulldog girls. Valley Center’s Vinessa

the Lady Dawgs had an 11 point lead. Del Norte cut that lead to 2 in the final period, but Ramona would not relinquish the lead. To say that the Lady Bulldogs of Ramona and the Lady Jaguars of Valley Center played a very physical and defensive oriented basketball game would be an understatement. Ramona triumphed 47-35 but it was a hard fought victory. “They have played a very tough schedule and they are a lot better than their record shows. They graduated eight seniors and are a very young squad, but they are very tough,” Marshall assessed the contest. “We had to fight and scratch the entire game. We can play defense and we can be

Thirteen was her lucky number. Mauldin scored 13 points and grabbed 13 boards, which was a major key in the win. Julie Ward also tallied in double figures. The senior guard scored 10 points, grabbed six rebounds, dished off two assists, and had two steals on defense. Kailey Hill scored 8 points, grabbed six rebounds, had three assists, and one steal, and played her best defensive game of the year. Barrameda scored 1, played well on defense, and helped to break the Del Norte pressure defense. Del Norte scored the first basket of the game but Ramona took the lead and never trailed. At one time

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

(The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

The petition will be granted unless good cause is shown why it should not be.) The petition is set for hearing in Dept.

IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the deceased, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in subdivision (b) of Section 58 of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery of the notice to you under Section 9052 of the California Probate Code.

Coach praises team after win over Valley Center By BILL TAMBURRINO Coach David Reichner was elated after his team beat Valley Center 64-59 in the Dawg House. “The win was a major breakthrough for Ramona as their last five previous losses all came due to losing the lead in the end. This game the boys proved they can compete with the best. They can handle pressure and they can win close games,” said the coach. The Jan. 22 game put the Dawgs in a three-way tie for first place in the Valley League with Del Norte and Valley Center. Ramona, however, lost the showdown for first place on Jan. 25 when Del Norte beat the Bulldogs. The game against Valley Center was hard fought and evenly played from the opening tip off. The game was tied six times and the lead changed five times in the first period as Matt Lawler scored 8 of the first 10 points in the paint. Ramona then went on a 7-3 run to take a 19-

15 lead going into the second quarter. In the second quarter the Bulldogs built a 10-point lead but the Jaguars rallied back to trail 34-31 at intermission. Lawler was called for his fourth foul late in the second period and sat out most of the third and

part of the fourth quarter. The third quarter was sloppy as Ramona committed 15 turnovers and forced Valley Center to turn the ball over 10 times. The Dawgs built their lead to 5 points going into the final period. Ramona again built a

10-point lead but the Jaguars rallied to cut the lead to 62-59 with 37 ticks left on the clock and with the ball. Ramona’s defense got a stop and the Jaguars had to commit a foul to stop the clock. After being fouled, Ryan Heiar hit two clutch free throws to

put the game out of reach with just seconds left on the clock. “The game was won on the defensive end of the court by holding Valley Center to three baskets inside the 3 point line during the fourth quarter,” said Reichner. Heiar and Alex Rogers shared the scoring honors for the Dawgs as each senior scored 14 points and had four assists. Lawler ended the game with 10 points and seven rebounds. Ramona got balanced scoring as Scott Stransky (7), Zach White (8), Marco Cobian (7), and Dylan Feiger (4) all scored in the game. White led the team with 10 rebounds, nine on the defensive end of the court. Reichner was also pleased that his team took five charges on defense. Three days later, Del Norte prevailed over the Bulldogs 67-53. Del Norte took the lead mid-way through the first quarter and led 16-9 going into the second period.

Ramona made a run late in the first half and got within 5 points before Del Norte took a 32-25 lead into the locker room. The Nighthawks took control of the game in the third period and coasted to a win in the second half. The Nighthawks moved the ball around and constantly found an open man. Ramona only had seven assists in the entire game. The loss dropped the Dawgs to 8-11 overall and 2-2 in league play. Stransky and Lawler shared scoring honors for the Bulldogs. Both contributed 14 points to the offense. Lawler led the Dawgs with eight rebounds. Heiar scored 8 and grabbed six boards. Cobian scored 7 with four rebounds. White and Rogers scored 4 points apiece. Fieger scored 2 points and led the team with three assists. The Bulldogs go on a two week road trip and will return to the Dawg House for Senior Night on Feb. 12 against Orange Glen.

Ramona began the tournament with two Jan. 21 games at the West Hills High School pool. The first was a 15-2 victory over Mount Miguel. The Bulldogs led 4-0 after two minutes, 7-0 at the end of the first quarter, and 11-1 at halftime. “It allowed our bench to get a lot of time in,” Williams said. West Hills was the opponent, as well as the pool, in Ramona’s second Jan. 21 game. The Wolfpack scored first, but the score was 2-2 at halftime, and 3-3 midway through the third period. “We were having opportunities but just not finishing,” Williams said. “We finally started making a couple of shots.” Ramona led 6-3 at the

end of the third quarter and won the game by a 6-4 score. The non-league game Jan. 22 at Rancho Bernardo’s pool was decided in overtime. Ramona scored the first two goals. The Broncos scored one goal near the end of the first period and tied the game with two minutes left in the second quarter. The game was tied at three goals apiece after three periods. An early fourthquarter goal gave Ramona a 4-3 lead, but the Broncos tied the game with three minutes left in regulation. Late in the overtime period, Rachel Hogervorst drew a penalty shot. Cassie Bernas took the five-meter shot and scored the winning goal for a 5-4 victory. The win was Ramona’s first ever over Rancho Bernardo. The Bulldogs returned to tournament play Jan. 25 in Mount Miguel’s pool. The rainy match against Mission Bay ended as an 8-2 Ramona victory. The Bulldogs led 4-1 after one pe-

riod and at halftime, and had a 7-1 lead during the third quarter. Bernas, Hogervorst, Jocelyn Schwegler, and Paulina Bernd each scored two goals. Goalkeeper Tiffany Larson made 10 saves. “It was a good game for Tif,” Williams said. Ramona’s two Jan. 26 games were played at El Capitan High School’s pool. Ramona defeated Otay Ranch by a 7-2 score in the semifinal. “They did a good job of defense there,” said Williams. Bernas and Schwegler scored the only goals in the first period, and Schwegler’s second goal gave the Bulldogs a 3-0 halftime lead. Ramona had a 7-0 lead after three periods. Larson made nine saves against the Mustangs. “They really struggled to make any good quality shots on cage,” Williams said. Larson added two steals while Bernas and Holly Smith shared the team lead with three steals apiece.

“The girls have been getting a ton of steals, and that helps out quite a lot,” said Williams. Westview won the championship with an 8-1 victory at Ramona’s expense. “We didn’t really make enough quality shots,” Williams said. “They were finishing and we weren’t.” The Wolverines had a 2-0 lead after one period. “It was a hard-fought game,” Williams said. Westview scored the first four goals before Ramona had the final score of the first half. A fivemeter penalty shot gave Westview a 5-1 lead in the third period, and the score was 6-1 entering the fourth quarter. Westview was successful on all three of its extra-player opportunities as well as on the penalty shot, while Ramona failed to score on all three of its power plays. The Bulldogs have another tournament this week; the San Diego Open will conclude Saturday.

CIF has new formula for sports divisions

Enrollment is not a factor when comparing public schools to private schools. Enrollment is not a factor when comparing regular public schools to charter schools or schools with an “academy” in their district. Private schools, charter schools, and schools with academies in their districts are not limited to students living in their enrollment areas. Private schools do not have en-

rollment areas. Schools with open enrollment don’t either. Coach Damon Baldwin once asked at a CIF meeting, “Can students from the boundaries of the Ramona Unified School District participate in athletics at a private school, a charter school or a school with open enrollment?” The answer was “yes.” “Can students who do not live in the Ramona Unified School District

that attend private schools or charter schools participate in athletics in the Ramona Unified School District?” The answer was “no.” Some changes needed to be made. The San Diego CIF Section established two committees in October 2011. After several meetings, the discussion in the two groups began to take similar paths. The topics of competitiveness, divisional breakdowns, and playoff participation were reviewed in both committees and the decision was made to merge the two committees. The concept of having divisions based on en-

rollment was questioned since there was a lack of correlation between enrollment and competitiveness. Several solutions were discussed, including separate divisions for private and public schools, which is done in some areas of the country. A new formula was reached. Divisions will be made up based on ranking teams in each sport, based on their history of competitiveness in that sport. The divisions will be changed annually, based on a formula that takes the records of the past five years into consideration. It is complicated. Football, girls volleyball, boys basketball, girls basketball, and baseball will use the past five years of Max Preps rankings. Trust me, not all schools report to Max Preps and that will not change. Lax Power rankings will be used for girls lacrosse and boys lacrosse. Rankings for field hockey, boys and girls water polo, boys and girls soccer, and softball have yet to be determined. The following individual sports will continue to have divisions based on enrollment: cross country, golf, tennis, wrestling, gymnastics, swim and

dive, and track and field. In the first year, teams can only move up two divisions and one division per year in the following years. The same goes for moving down. In football, schools with an enrollment of 1,250 or more cannot be placed below Division IV, no matter how bad they are. There will be an open division which will have first consideration for state playoffs. The open division will have eight teams and every team in the open division will advance to the playoffs. The number of teams in each division below the open division will be equal to or greater than the teams in the above division. There will be either 12 or 16 teams in the playoffs in Divisions I through III and eight teams in Divisions IV and V. Schools will be able to petition for a change in divisions only for statistical error information used for rankings, request to move to a higher division if they can find somebody to move down, or dispute of commissioner’s placement for teams with no rankings. The Open Division Champion will be designated as the Section

Champion. The other division champions will be designated as Division Champions. Baseball and lacrosse will pilot the divisions this spring. If a ranking system can be reached for softball, it will also start this spring. If a school has a significant shift in population or the CIF office determines that there are circumstances that lead to a school being grossly misplaced in a division, the CIF office has the authority to adjust the school’s placement. Confused? Next week I will endeavor to confuse you more with my take and my suggestion(s). Until then, let it be known that Ramona will be in Division I in baseball, football and volleyball playoffs. Girls’ lacrosse will be in Division II. Think about it. The NCAA has been doing this for a long time and we all know how fair the NCAA has been in all sports. Does the BCS formula sound familiar? How about the NCAA basketball tournament seeding committee?

Derochie signs letter of intent with Davidson

By JOE NAIMAN

Ramona High School senior Mikayla Derochie has signed a letter of intent to play volleyball with Davidson College. “I’m very excited,” Derochie said of signing. “Very excited for Mikayla to be recognized,” said coach Connie Halfaker. Halfaker noted that Derochie became Ramona’s first volleyball player to sign a letter of intent with an NCAA Division I school during the early signing period. “It’s quite an honor and a testament to her ability. I’m confident that she’s going to

Basketball

bring leadership and competitive drive to their program,” Halfaker said. Derochie, who played setter for Ramona, was a three-year starter for the Bulldogs. In 2011, Ramona was in the Palomar League, whose coaches named Derochie to the league’s second team. The Bulldogs spent the 2012 girls volleyball season in the Valley League, whose coaches made Derochie an all-league first team selection. Ramona was in Division II for CIF playoff purposes both years, and Derochie was on the all-division second team in both 2011 and 2012. During the 2012 season,

Perryman was carrying their offense and had scored 18 points going into the last eight minutes. Coach Ken Scheib had his team put on a special defensive adjustment that doubled up on Perryman, and the maneuver worked as Ramona’s defense limited her to just 4 points and the Valley Center team just 5 points in the period.

Derochie averaged 11.8 assists per game and also had 31 digs, 18 kills, and 6 aces. “Mikayla adds some tremendous depth to our program at the setter position,” said Davidson coach Chris Willis. “Her size (Derochie is 5’11”) and ability to run a fast offense will help tremendously with her transition to the college level.” Derochie was born in Calgary and moved to Ramona when she was in fourth grade. She attended Barnett Elementary School and Olive Peirce Middle School prior to her four years at Ramona High School. Derochie was in sixth grade at Olive Peirce when she took

Mauldin led the Lady Dawgs in scoring with 15 points as she scored from all over the floor. She also hauled down eight rebounds—six on the defensive end of court. Hill scored 12 points, working mostly in the paint where she grabbed nine rebounds and dished off two assists. Ward scored 8 points and grabbed seven boards as

she led the team with five assists. Spring and Barrameda each contributed 5 points to the offense, and Ashlyn Savage scored 2 points. Kylee Scheib, Hannah Farhat and Kara Banegas played well on defense. The Bulldogs girls go on the road for two weeks and will play their final regular season home game on Se-

up volleyball. “I was just looking for a sport to play,” she said. Derochie made Ramona High School’s junior varsity team as a ninth-grader before starting on the varsity for her other three high school seasons. Derochie began club volleyball play with Epic while she was a high school freshman and still plays for Epic. She had also been considering Eastern Washington, but was the alternate for the Eagles’ scholarship offer, which fell through when the school’s first preference committed. She was then offered a scholarship at Davidson, which is in North Carolina. Derochie wanted to visit the campus prior to committing and made her trip in December. “Everything seemed to work out,” she said. “It’s a good fit for me academically.” Derochie will be a biology major at Davidson. She hopes to become a physical therapist. Davidson’s starting setter in 2012, was a senior, so Derochie will be competing for the starting job.
