Planners reconsider support for median barriers By KAREN BRAINARD Ramona Community Planning Group members are reconsidering support of center median barriers for State Route 67, as proposed by Caltrans, after receiving new information at a meeting with public safety officials. At a public meeting in August, Caltrans unveiled its State Route 67 Median Barrier Feasability

Project that considers five options for the center of the highway from Willow Road in Lakeside to Shady Oaks Drive in Ramona: a concrete barrier, a metal barrier, a high tension cable barrier, a median buffer, and “no build.” At its Sept. 5 meeting, several RCPG members voiced support for concrete median barriers to prevent head-on collisions. That changed after planner

Dennis Sprong told the group at its Oct. 3 meeting that he was in favor of a median barrier until he talked to emergency responders. Sprong attended a meeting Sept. 24 that was attended by members from the sheriff’s department, California Highway Patrol, County Office of Emergency Services and Department of Animal Services, Ramona Fire Department/Cal Fire and Caltrans. Areas of concern,

Sprong pointed out, were the possibilities of accidents increasing with concrete barriers, longer emergency call response times, and more difficulty enforcing speed. Lt. James Bovet of the sheriff’s Ramona station said that when members of the public safety groups looked at Caltrans’ proSee HIGHWAY MEDIANS page 8

EARTHQUAKE DRILL—Kindergartner Brody Hill in Aida Martinez’s class at Ramona Elementary School peeks out from under a table as students take cover and hold on during the Great California ShakeOut at 10:17 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17. San Diego County reported that approximately 818,400 people in the county registered to participate in the drill. In the event of an earthquake, officials recommend that people drop, cover and hold on until the shaking stops. They suggest that residents have a plan for emergencies and review it with all family members. A template is at www.ReadySanDiego.org by clicking on the family tab.

Candlelight vigil held for kindergartner struck by minivan

Bella Noble is pictured in this photo provided by her father, William Noble, on the website bellabenefit.com.

Car strikes student in school parking lot A seventh-grade student suffered a broken toe and bruises when she was hit by a car in the staff parking lot at Olive Peirce Middle School around 7:40 a.m. last Wednesday, said the school’s principal. The girl was crossing the staff lot to reach the school building when the car, traveling about 5 mph, struck her, said Principal Pauline Leavitt. She was transported to an area hospital by the Ramona Fire Department. Leavitt said

the student was expected to be in school last Friday. “We’re obviously taking this pretty seriously,” said Leavitt, adding that she will review the school’s procedures about students walking in the staff parking lot. “It’s very busy in the morning,” she said. Students are encouraged to walk on the sidewalks to the school, she noted. The sheriff’s department is investigating the incident, said the principal.

A 5-year-old Ramona girl who was accidentally run over by a minivan her mother drove Oct. 17, was remembered by a crowd that gathered for a candlelight vigil Sunday evening. The vigil for Bella Noble was held at Harbour Farm & Vineyard on State Route 67, not far from the scene of the accident. Bella and her family had visited the pumpkin farm the weekend before the accident. Bella, her mother and siblings were at a friend’s house at 3306 Carnation Avenue last Thursday when, about 5:20 p.m., Bella ran behind her mother’s 2000 Chevrolet Astro van in an attempt to open a gate as her mother was backing up, according to authorities. The girl’s father, William Noble, told reporters that night that his wife was backing up and unaware that Bella and their other children were on the van’s bumper, and that Bella had jumped off. “The mother lost sight

of her daughter and felt a bump at the rear of her vehicle and realized she may have struck her child,” said California Highway Patrol in a statement. “Not realizing she had run over her daughter, she pulled forward and struck her child a second time.” Paramedics flew Bella to Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, where she

died a short time later. On a website set up for Bella, www.bellabenefit. com, Noble is quoted as saying, “Just hug your kids. Love them. Make time for them. Do everything they ask you, even if you have to dress up funny, because you never know when they’re not going to be here anymore.” Harbour Farm and Vine-

yard Owner Dave Harbour said he will honor Bella’s life by creating a garden at the farm in her name, Bella’s Garden, with trees and flowers that the family can choose. A savings account has been set up for the family to accept donations for funeral and other expenses. More information on donating is at www.bellabenefit.com.

omestic violence, the focus of an awareness campaign by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department this month, has its share of calls in Ramona, and the victims are not always women. “So far this year we’ve made 48 arrests for physical violence,” said Lt. James Bovet with the sheriff’s Ramona station. While the majority of calls involve female victims, Bovet said about a third of the time they are male. “That’s pretty consistent about the last three years here,” he said. In Ramona the number of reported domestic violence cases dropped from 175 in 2011 to less than 150 in 2012, said the lieutenant. Those cases include physical and verbal abuse, he said. He expects the 2013 numbers to be similar to last year.

Overall for the sheriff’s department, those stats increased — from 3,675 calls in 2011 to 3,965 in 2012. The sheriff’s department describes domestic violence and emotional abuse as behaviors used by one person in a relationship to control the other. That can include married couples, boyfriend and girlfriend, people living together, divorced couples with children, and an adult and minor. Domestic arguments can be the root, but substance abuse can also provoke the violence, said Bovet. Signs of an abuser can include belittling, blaming others when something goes wrong, getting violent when drinking alcohol or taking drugs, using shame and/or guilt to control a situation, and losing temper and throwing things, according to the sheriff’s department. Anyone fearful of be-

ing a victim of domestic violence may visit the Ramona station, which has brochures on domestic violence and a list of references and resources, said Bovet. The station at 1424 Montecito Road may be contacted at 760-7899157. Bovet also suggested calling the North County Family Violence Prevention Center at 760-7982835 or the East County Justice Center at 619-4569609. In an emergency, call 911. The sheriff’s department lists resources, red flags for victims, and services, such as getting a restraining order, at sdsheriff.net/dv. The county domestic violence 24-hour hotline is 888385-4657.

Wear a mask

‘Exquisite Corpse’ opening reception set for Tuesday

A

rtists participating in the Tuesday Nights group facilitated by Helen Wilson are preparing for the fifth annual Exquisite Corpse show. An opening reception for the show will be on Tuesday, Oct. 29, from 5 to 9 p.m. The art show will be on exhibit at 1140 Main St., Suite 208, Oct. 30 through Nov. 3 from noon to 6 p.m. each day. Because the opening reception will be a masquerade opening, those attending are asked to wear a mask. Wilson, an artist and lifelong Ramona resident, invited the Tuesday Nights art group to play the Exquisite Corpse game five years ago. The game, invented by the surrealists, earned its name from one of the initial writings, “The exquisite corpse will drink

the young wine.” “It is the perfect game for creating art for a Halloween exhibition,” said Wilson. The Ramona group plays the game with a bit of a twist. The body is broken into proportionally correct sheets of paper. Then each artist draws one body part at a time. The results are put on the floor where each chooses a body, one part at a time. “Traditionally this is where the game ends — a body created by multiple artists, but this is where they really change the game,” noted Wilson. “Everyone goes home with his or her body and they agreed to reassemble for the exhibition. Once home, their body was the inspiration for a piece of art.” Artists could work in any ma-

The group has painters, sculptors, quilters, assemblage artists, collage artists, printmakers, basket weavers, musicians, book artists and mixed media artists. The Tuesday Nights group meets once a month, sometimes more. Each meeting is built around one project idea, which culminates in an exhibition, but mostly it is a way to advance creative skills with other creative types. The goals are building an art community through exhibitions and socialization with other artists, learning to critique one’s own and others’ work, and developing technical proficiency in a variety of media and/or methods.

Guest Commentary

At $5 per person, we can reroof school/s By DAVID PATTERSON

B

elieve it or not, $5 can make a big difference.

One factor that can as easily improve or destroy a community is the quality of the children’s education, and Ramona is no different. The best investment we can make is in the schooling of our children, as the results directly affect our standard of living. This rule applies equally to people with children and those without, as we all gain or lose, and this is why the Ramona FORUS (Friends of Ramona Unified Schools) group is embarking on its second campaign to improve the health and welfare of our public schools. The Roof Project will take donations to replace and/or do a major repair of a school roof or group of roofs where the leaks are bad. One teacher has reported having to put out several buckets in her classroom, and we all know that the resulting mold and dry rot can eventually destroy a building. Thus we at FORUS have begun to take donations for the Roof Project, and this time we hope to receive contributions from all residents. With a population close to 40,000, we in the Valley of the Sun can make a significant difference with a donation of $5 per person. At $5 per person, we accumulate approximately $200,000 toward replacing a major roof, or to apply toward many smaller roof projects. The beauty of this campaign is that $5 per person, or $20 for a family of four, is not dependent on deep pockets, and is a campaign to unify the community with everyone’s participation. Old, young, retired or first-graders, we can all participate equally for the common good. The actual roof that we will target has yet to be decided. However, with energy efficiency money coming available to the school district, we may be able to replace a large roof and have air conditioners replaced as well. Such an accomplishment will be a significant improvement in the school environment, accomplished by the people of Ramona. FORUS members will be on the street on Halloween looking to promote our effort and take donations. $5 per person for a dry healthy environment for our students, and an investment in our future, is our goal. Please join us. FORUS is a registered nonprofit in California with 501(c)(3) pending. Donations for the Roof Project may be sent to: Dave Patterson 1003 6th street Ramona, CA 92065 Dave Patterson, a Ramona resident and FORUS member, is chairman of the nonprofit’s school roof project.

Sentinel Reader Opinion A 5 percent raise — really? I would like to respond to an article on Page 2, Oct. 16, 2013. David Barnum and his 5 percent raise makes me wonder, what is this board thinking? A 5 percent raise makes him perfect. I don’t think so. I got one of those at RMWD some years ago and had it taken away with the explanation that “nobody is perfect.” I believe hard work makes you a good employee and I know many who deserve that 5 percent before he does. These people are the ones who have worked hard to get

the funding. They are there when everything needs to be fixed at 2 a.m. They are the ones who take all the calls from angry people. I have been there. I know. I also know who actually got the funding that his laurels are riding on. I pat you all on the back because you have been doing it strong while others take the credit.

have trouble each year to make payments on the interest only. In fact, we have to borrow more to make these payments. This is just the beginning of our problems. When will we start making payments on the principal, the $16 trillion we owe? The only way I see that we can start making payments is to cut the amount appropriated to each section of the federal government. I know this would be a very difficult action to take, but I am sure the people could bite the bullet and accept these reductions, if they thought Congress was serious about reducing the debt. The American people are tough as hell. They could go along with tough times if Congress was reasonable and honest in their actions. I don’t make these suggestions lightly. I’m 90

years old and mad as hell. Congress does not even talk about the principal. Donal Russell Ramona

Government on a debt binge

The United States of America is a republic. Groups like the Tea Party highlight that this is the ideal form of government. If it was a democracy, we would be in danger of losing our individual freedoms with majority rule. It is apparent that Ms. Harwell is no fan of the Tea Party. From her idea that it was a movement spawned by people she likened to bored housewives, it is apparent she has no clue what the Tea Party is about. The only thing remotely tied to sipping tea is that in the 1990s some disgruntled citizens started See LETTERS, page 7

By KAREN BRAINARD A 90-year-old World War II veteran will be running through Ramona this week in his coast to coast quest to raise money for a tank landing ship used in the D-Day invasion at Normandy. Ernie Andrus of Prescott, Ariz., welcomes anyone who would like to join him on his jog or cheer him on. “I’d love to have some runners come through here,” he said. He plans to run 6.1 miles on Thursday, Oct. 24, from the Park & Ride lot at SR-67 and Poway Road to Highland Valley Road and 67. On Saturday, he plans to run 3.53 miles, starting

and other Ramona congregations. “We are grateful for all of the support we have received in the past from our neighbors in the community,” noted the Rev. Val Weise, Ramona United Methodist pastor. Anyone able to assist may call the church at 760-789-7106.

almost 70 years ago. The desire was to take the ship, currently docked on the Ohio River in Evansville, Ind., to Normandy for the D-Day Plus 70 memorial service in June 2014, but the group ran short of funds. Andrus, who served in the South Pacific during the war, is hoping to raise enough money to transport the ship for D-Day Plus 75 in 2019. Andrus said those who

would like to make a tax deductible donation can make checks payable to the USS LST Ship Memorial, or sponsor him on his coast-to-coast run.

Catholic church to serve 66th Turkey Dinner An annual tradition that started in 1947 when Ramona was one of the world’s largest provider of turkeys continues with a turkey dinner with all the trimmings at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church on Oct. 27, from 1 to 6 p.m. Each October, Ramona staged a Turkey Festival with a parade, activities and special honors to citizens. “This was done to encourage the people of San Diego County to purchase their turkeys from the Ramona turkey farmers,” Mary King said in her announcement of this year’s dinner. The church originally did not have a place to cook the meal. The entire community pitched in and cooked the turkeys in their homes and delivered them and the trimmings where everything could be served to the public, said King. The Catholic church continued the annual tradition. Eventually, proceeds from the annual fundraiser helped

build the proper facilities to host this event and many other community events to give back to the community, noted King. One is the “Feed the Hungry” program. In 2007, the Witch Fire delayed dinner. The congregation prepared and served the community two months later. To assure they don’t run out of food, only advance tickets will be sold. No tickets will be available at the door, “so that we will be able to prepare all the food that is necessary without running out this year,” said King. Tickets are available in the parish office through Oct. 25 for $9 for adults, $7 for seniors age 60 and older, $5 for children ages 3 to 10, and $30 for a family up to two adults and four children. All are invited to help continue the tradition at the church’s 66th annual turkey dinner. King may be contacted at 760-2160637 for more information.

to send their government representatives a tea bag as a sign of their disapproval. The Tea Party is a far cry from tea and crumpets. As a grandparent I am very concerned about our future generations having to bear the 17-trillion-dollar (and growing) burden of our burgeoning government. It is hard to find the words to describe the true horror of the national debt. The U.S. government has been on the greatest debt binge in all of human history, and a day of reckoning is coming that is going to be so painful that it is going to shock America to the core. I, like millions of other concerned citizens, decided to become active in trying to change the disastrous course of our government’s out of control spending. We elected people like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee. They listened to their constituents and had the courage to stand up and represent against the “good old boys” establishment. Concerned and caring people like those in the Tea Party are the warp and weft of the fabric of America. This is what makes us strong. We do not need to “fundamentally transform” as our current president would have us do. But we do have to make sure that our elected officials follow our Constitution and stand up for the people, instead of wielding their power and spitefully locking our precious veterans out of their own memorial, or punishing the citizenry by

closing parks and monuments that were historically never closed during the previous 18 government shut-downs. We must demand they work for us, not the other way around. I am in agreement with Mr. Halstead and Mr. Byrne. Citizens, stand up for your country, take interest and take action, send in your tea bag and most importantly — vote! Respectfully and proudly, I Am Citizen! Susan Leukhardt Ramona

Over the top statement I was appalled to read a quote by Assemblyman Brian Jones in a story in the Sept. 26 Ramona Sentinel titled “Crowd turns out for assemblyman’s 2nd Amendment Awareness Event.” I wrote the assemblyman about his extremely offensive remark, so I would like to share that letter with Sentinel readers. Dear Assemblyman Brian Jones: A quote in the Ramona Sentinel (9/26/2013) was attributed to you at your 2nd Amendment Awareness Event that, if true, paints you as a pandering, violenceprovoking individual. The quote was, “You never know when you will need it (a gun) to fend off a criminal or a tyrant.” OK, by tyrant you must mean a government official. I cannot believe you would use this type of language no matter how much you love guns. You would actually support gun nuts using a gun against a “tyrant,” which by

A Caltrans spokesperson said Caltrans has been receiving public comments about the median barrier proposal but cannot reveal how many until an environmental impact report is completed, expected in spring 2014, when a public presentation will be given.

SPECIAL DELIVERY—Ramona High Class of 2013 graduate Doug Barnett helps unload three vanloads of paper at Ramona High School last Thursday. The paper — everything from high-gloss photo paper to copy paper — was donated by Hewlett-Packard in Rancho Bernardo and divided among Ramona High, Montecito High, Olive Peirce Middle School, and Ramona Elementary. School board member Kim Lasley coordinated the delivery to those schools and said this is the fifth or sixth year HP has donated supplies. She and her helpers returned to HP on Friday and delivered four vanloads of printers, zip drives, cameras and more paper to the schools. Employees and volunteers from Hanson Elementary and Ramona Community School also picked up donations.

schools and between the district office and schools. School trustees supported his request to spend $225,000 — or 19 percent — of the nearly $2 million the state gave the district to implement the new academic standards called common core. “These changes are going to allow the teachers and the students within this district to move forward with the resources available on the Internet in a way we can’t do now,” Wright said. None of the money will be spent on computers, said Wright, telling trustees that decisions will come later about types of devices to purchase: Chromebooks, iPads, Netbooks, laptops, or other online options available. “What we’re talking about today is the freeway,” said Wright. “We’re not talking about the cars on the freeway. We’re looking to build that framework to allow us to grow and to grow into this common core or state testing. That’s the direction we’re going to go.” Existing conditions do not allow teachers and students to take advantage of all the Internet devices they have. “Right now, if a teacher wants to teach in her classroom, they have to announce, OK everybody, get out your phones and turn off your Internet, because nobody will be able to get on,” said trustee Rodger Dohm, noting the value of wireless

connectivity. “Or they get on and it’s really slow,” said Wright. The district has a Bring Your Own Device policy and students are coming to school with iPads, laptops, smartphones and other devices, “and they should technically be able to use it on our network,” Wright said, adding “We try to discourage that because we can’t support that flood of bandwidth usage.” The infrastructure upgrades will remedy that, he said. “We’ve been able to move a lot of things off our network into the cloud (Internet),” he said. “The cost of that is we need bandwidth.” The district experiences network slowness daily, particularly about 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., “because we have so much stuff going on at those times,” he said. To make use of a San Diego State University donation of about $300,000 worth of Cisco switches, the

district must spend about $30,000 for a Cisco engineer to program the switches and for cabling and other equipment, Wright said. He estimates the cost to increase network bandwidth at $92,000, hardware costs for wireless connectivity at $61,400, and installation cost at $42,000. Installation estimates from vendors were as high as $76,000, which was more than the district wanted to spend, so employees in his department and the maintenance department will do as much of the work as they can, he said. In his report to the board, Wright said the upgrades will prepare the district for MAPP testing in the spring, allow more mobile device use, and allow the district to take advantage of other network opportunities such as a digital phone system. In a related vote at the meeting, trustees authorized the district to seek bids for a digital phone system.

Semper Solaris can save ratepayers BY KRISTINA HIUCK Because San Diego Gas and Electric raised rates for its high-energy users, many San Diego County households and most businesses had a bigger energy bill in September. To avoid the rate hike, Daniel Jackson had 18 solar panels installed on his 2,500-square-foot home in April. “We all know electric is just going up and up,” said Jackson, who lives with his wife, Tracy, and two children. “The rates went up again in September. Now every time I hear about an increase by SDG&E, it basically makes me richer.” After researching a number of local companies, Jackson chose Semper Solaris, whose leaders have more than 65 years of experience in the building and solar industry. The team at the Alpinebased company thoroughly explained solar and its benefits, Jackson said. “I just can’t stand sales people and I can’t stand that sleazy kind of feel that I get from a lot of sales guys,” said Jackson, who added he liked that the company uses high-quality, American-made panels. “With Semper Solaris, they just presented the facts. I really liked their presentation. They were really straightforward.” Before Semper Solaris installed the Jacksons’ system, the family was billed roughly $150 each month. They no longer have a monthly electric bill, Jackson said. In fact, the panels produce more energy — about 100 kilowatts — than the family uses every month.

P-V-D What does it take to be successful? First of all one must define what success is. Is success making a ton of money, being famous, or living in a mansion and driving fancy cars? Or is success doing what you love doing for work, being able to enjoy your kids and having the health to see them do the same with their kids 20 years from now? Is success having time freedom to do what you want, when you want to do it? I believe it is a combination of all of the above. I recently was interviewed by an industry leader about what I believed to be three key components to success. Passion, Vision, Determination Passion — To begin your path to success in work or in play, you must follow your passion. For me as a young teenager, my passion for fitness and bodybuilding led me toward working in the industry. With this passion, I have been able to have longevity in the business of fitness. If you try to earn the money, time freedom and health, but do it in an industry or business that you are not passionate about, your fire for getting there will soon be snuffed out. You will be working for the weekend. Vision — When I was young, I would imagine owning my own gym. I would image what it would look like, sound like and even smell like (yeah, weird, I know). This vision spurred me on. This vision inspired me. This vision became a cornerstone for action. You must envision that healthy body you want. Close your eyes and envision yourself in peak condition. Envision what it takes to achieve that optimal you! Envision eating right, sleeping well and working out daily. Envision how it feels when endorphins are pumping through your veins after finishing an grueling workout. "When you can conceive and believe you can achieve" is true when joined with the next key. Determination — That fact is that if it’s worth having, it’s worth the hard work. On your path to success you will encounter roadblocks, detours and dead ends. You must be determined to work when others are sleeping. You must be determined to be creative and find an alternate route. The towel will not be thrown into the ring. Use the towel to wipe your brow, but be determined to get back in the fight. Building a business, career, body or life will require discipline. Discipline is doing what ought to be done even when you don’t want to or don’t feel like it. Be inspired to live the life of success you want and be proactive about getting there. Good luck and check out www.ramonafitness.com for articles, workouts, videos and how you can get started on your path to you, only better!

Gasoline fire safety Cal Fire reminds everyone to properly store gasoline. Gasoline should only be stored in an approved “safety can” away from heat sources. Never store gasoline

in the house, garage or basement. Any spark or pilot light can quickly ignite fumes from gasoline. When invisible gasoline vapors explode, the intensity can engulf a garage with flames in seconds. Be fire safe, not sorry!

Therapeutic center thriving in new home By REGINA ELLING

Photo by Maria Kruse

Madison Kruse, who has taken riding lessons at Cornerstone for nearly three years, hugs her therapy horse.

As she looks around her new landscape — a picturesque horse ranch surrounded by mountain views — Judy Beckett is beaming. “This property is alive, it’s joyful,” she said, smiling. Beckett, founder and executive director of Cornerstone Therapeutic Riding Center, is enthusiastic about the program’s new possibilities with the move across town. Formerly based at Creek Hollow Ranch in Ramona, Cornerstone is now leasing 10 acres in the Barona Mesa area, just outside San Diego Country Estates. “We are extremely grateful to Colleen Burman and Creek Hollow for our previous home,” said Beckett. “And now, with this property, we have a wonderful opportunity to make our forever home here.” The facilities were designed with thoughtfulness toward both horses and riders.

“From one end of the property to the other, everything is beautifully set up,” she said. “There are barns, arenas, round pens, wash racks, paddocks and more. Everything is built to last. Every little detail has been planned out.” Meanwhile, the program’s herd of horses seems to appreciate their new home. “They are all so content here; you can see how peaceful and relaxed they are,” she said. With so much attention given to the comfort and well-being of the animals, Beckett knows that humans can’t help but “feel the love” at the new location. “People and relationships will thrive here,” she said. “You can just tell; the property just asks to be used. This is a place where people should be together, comfortable, laughing and having fun.” Beckett and her team of volunteers took September off to move. They resumed lessons in early October.

Cornerstone consists of two programs: Cornerstone Therapeutic Riding and Operation Saddle Up. The first program works with children and adults with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities, as well as traumatic brain injuries. Operation Saddle Up works with wounded military personnel. “Since we started our program in September 2008, we’ve served nearly 400 wounded warriors,” said Beckett. “We’ve also given more than 4,000 therapeutic riding lessons — and that’s a conservative number.” The benefits of therapeutic riding are well documented. Beckett strongly believes that with the new facilities, even more people can be helped. “We have wonderful opportunities here,” she said. The one component Cornerstone needs is more volunteers. Many were hard at work on a recent Saturday morning. While some raked away fallen debris, others were busy

feeding horses. At one point, everyone came together to help set up a riding arena. “A good volunteer doesn’t necessarily have to be horse savvy,” Beckett said. “They just need to be willing to learn.” Volunteers should be forewarned. Joining Cornerstone is much like gaining an extended family. “Judy is like family,” said volunteer Sandra Sorokin, noting that “being around the horses I love, and giving back” are her favorite parts of helping out. “Some of my patients are here,” said physician Janine Kasch, D.O., while explaining why she volunteers. “Just being out here is different than what I normally do, and it is very rewarding to see people enjoying themselves, and not worrying about their disabilities.” “I just really enjoy the good-hearted people who help out here, the goodhearted horses who love See CORNERSTONE page 13

their jobs, and the goodhearted people able to celebrate their own accomplishments,” said Jenny Hindmarsh. “Our horses are the bridge for people to use in healing and growing,” explained Beckett. “Being part of such a wonderful community is just extraordinary, and we can’t wait to get started.” Maria Kruse, the mother of 15-year-old Madison Kruse, sums up the program in a particularly poignant way. Madison is developmentally delayed, and was diagnosed with velocardiofacial syndrome at the age of 2. She has been participating in therapeutic riding at Cornerstone for nearly three years. “I simply can’t put into words how much being a part of this program has

touched and changed our lives,” Maria wrote in a letter to Beckett. “The value of this program is immeasurable, I feel SO lucky that we are able to be a part of the Cornerstone family and I am so

excited to see the possibilities of the growth of such an important program.” Cornerstone Therapeutic Riding Center at 25602 Tin Cup Drive is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Professional rodeo cowboy and Ramona businessman Matt Deskovick won the steer wrestling buckle with his first-place time of 4.1 seconds at the Western Days Rodeo in San Dimas. “I had a very good steer,” he said of Booger Red. Although Deskovick’s payout of $1,090 will count toward his earnings in the season standings, a steer wrestler traditionally gives 25 percent of his winnings to the hazer who guides the steer. Deskovick’s hazer was Utah cowboy Brock Andrus. “Brock did good,” said Deskovick, owner of Catt Farm & Ranch Supply. Deskovick, Booger Red’s owner, ended up with 25 percent of Romoland cowboy Arnold Laskey’s $818 second-place earnings after Laskey used the horse for his 4.8 second run. Deskovick’s run was after

Laskey’s, so Deskovick knew what time he had to beat and focused on making a clean run. “I knew he was a good steer,” Deskovick said. Not only did Deskovick avoid a 10-second penalty for a broken barrier, but he left the chute fast enough to keep up with the steer. Not everything went perfectly for Deskovick. He competed with some back pain, as he hurt his back the day before when he was adjusting his trailer. The pain was worse that day than during Deskovick’s rodeo performance. The 2014 rodeo season began with the previous weekend’s rodeos. Deskovick’s sixth-place time of 6.4 seconds at the Sheriff’s Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Rodeo in San Bernardino was worth $304 in earnings, so his San Dimas winnings brought his season total to $1,394.

Ramona Community Planning Group Chair Jim Piva sits on the county’s Land Development Performance Review Committee where he received a chart showing the number of building permits issued over a 10-year-period. In fiscal year 2002-03, the county issued 9,945 building permits in the unincorporated areas. That number gradually decreased and then significantly dropped in 2008-09 to 4,998. Since

then building permits rose slowly, but more so from 2011-12 to 2012-13, when an 8 percent jump brought the number of permits to 7,887. “You can see how bad it got. It’s getting better,” Piva pointed out at the planning group’s Oct. 3 meeting. The permits fall under the categories of residential, mobile home/trailer, commercial, solar, online, and miscellaneous. The county provided the Sentinel with statistics for Ramona’s 92065 zip code for the past two years. For 2011-12, the total number of building permits issued was 496.

Unicorn Books and Gifts to host book signing of ‘The Fire Outside My Window’ on Saturday Journalist and Ramona resident Sandra Millers Younger tells her story of surviving the 2003 Cedar fire in her recently released “The Fire Outside My Window.” She will sign copies of the book in Unicorn Books and Gifts on Saturday, Oct. 28. Unicorn owners Stacy Bart and Julia Dammier will mark the 10th anniversary of the devastating wildfire by hosting the book signing and talk in their Old Town Ramona bookstore at 738 Main St. at 4 p.m. The Cedar Fire ravaged the San Diego area, burning nearly 280,000 acres, destroying approximately 2,200 homes and hundreds of other buildings, and killing 15 people. Leaving her doomed home the night of the catastrophe, Younger drove through flames, and with her husband was saved by a bobcat that showed her the road she couldn’t see through dense smoke. With her narrative of the largest fire in California’s recorded history, she takes readers into the heart of an epic firefight, telling the stories of fire managers and air tanker pilots trying to combat a catastrophe bigger than they had ever imagined, and recounting survivors’ and victims’ desperate efforts to escape flames moving faster than fire engines could drive. An award-winning magazine journalist, Younger’s writing credits range from academic journals to Seventeen. She holds journalism degrees from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and Syracuse University, and lives in Wildcat Canyon, the area worst hit by the fire. Described as a riveting tale that cap-

tures the intensity of a runaway wildfire, “The Fire Outside My Window” shares the author’s experience and her interviews with firefighters, survivors and the families of those who died. “Timing, location and weather conspired against air tankers, fire engines and bulldozers, enabling a lost hunter’s signal fire to gather strength in the mountains east of San Diego,” the author’s website states. “Overnight, a swelling wind sent flames galloping toward the Pacific, killing 15 people, 12 of them my neighbors...and creating a lunarscape 20 times SANDRA MILLERS YOUNGER the size of Manhattan.” Unicorn Books and Gifts, an independent bookstore that opened in 2011, sells new and used books, gifts, jewelry, crystals, candles, fine Your pet can’t talk and often shows no signs when artists works something is wrong.

Bulldogs' defense outscores Titans' offense By BILL TAMBURRINO

Photo/Doug Sooley

Travis Kerchner makes one of his 15 tackles with Raul Briseno coming in for an assist.

Any time an offense puts up 376 yards it should get plenty of credit, but it was Ramona’s defense that won the game against Poway, 49-7, on Oct. 18. The Bulldogs are now 7-0. The Bulldog defense outscored the Titan offense. The Dawg D intercepted two passes and both times went for touchdowns. Garrett Binkley grabbed a Titan pass in the third quarter and rambled 35 yards for a score and Keyanis Crichlow picked off a pass in the same period and scampered 28 yards for a score. Travis Kerchner spent enough time in the Poway backfield to earn a letter. He recorded 15 tackles, had one tackle for a loss, and hit hurried the quar-

terback three times. Tanner “T-Bone” Williams and Matt Lawler both forced Titan fumbles and Keyshaun Crichlow recovered both loose balls. Ramona’s front four, TBone Williams, Patrick Hastings, Raul Briseno and Dallas Domnitz kept constant pressure on Poway’s highly-touted freshman quarterback, Tate Martell, and set up the linebacker corps to shut down the running game. Ben Barnat recorded five tackles, had a sack and had a tackle for a loss. The Bulldog secondary broke up five passes. Garrett Dart, Nathan Cherek and Christian Dominguez all recorded three tackles apiece. Poway’s only score came when they forced a Bulldog turnover on the Bulldog 36-yard line late

in the first quarter and then scored early in the second quarter. From then on it was all Ramona. NFL and college television commentators would label Bulldog quarterback Marco Cobian a “game manager.” That means he just wins and makes it look easy. Cobian hit on 12 of 19 attempts for 176 yards and two touchdowns. All but two of those completions came in the first half. He hit Cherek with a 23yard scoring pass and hit Keyanis Crichlow with a 17-yard fade in the end zone. The Bulldogs face Oceanside at Ramona High School Friday in a league game. Both teams are ranked in the top 10 in San Diego section and in the top 25 in the state. JV plays at 4:30 p.m. and varsity kicks off at 7 p.m.

Girls tennis beats powerful Mira Mesa, gains 2 league wins By BILL TAMBURRINO Coach Matt McCormick’s Bulldog girls tennis team had a successful week as it won an important non-league match against Mira Mesa and then beat two Valley League rivals to improve its record to 9-4 overall and 6-1 in the Valley League. The two league wins set up a showdown for the Valley League title in the final week of league action against Del Norte High School. Ramona won its most important match of the season as it beat Division I power Mira Mesa High School 11-7 in a match with CIF Division II implications. This was a very important match for CIF seeding purposes because Mira Mesa is in the same league as two great Division II teams, Serra and Point Loma, both of which Mira Mesa has beaten. ”Mira Mesa stacked doubles to try and throw

us off our game plan, but our singles players played amazingly strong and won eight out of nine sets against a strong Mira Mesa team,” said McCormick. ”Jessica Failla (6-0, 6-0 and 6-0) continued her quest for a CIF championship with complete dominance of the Lady Marauder singles players. Megan Douglass (6-3, 6-4 and 6-1) swept all of the Mira Mesa singles players, and Elizabeth Bowersox (6-1, 4-6 and 6-1) won two of three in fiercely contested matches. “The doubles players faced a very strong and densely stacked doubles corps from Mira Mesa. Lauren Dunker and Rebecca Vaca bounced back from a loss against the number one team and were able to defeat the two and three teams. Cassidy Owens and Danielle Vizcarra played a close set against the number one team and were able to take down the number three Lady Marauder doubles team. Caroline

Lopresti and Alyssa Virgilio picked up valuable experience and were able to win games against all three Mira Mesa teams.” The match was very tight. After the first two rounds the score was tied 6-6. In the last round, the Lady Bulldogs simply rose up and took out the Mira Mesa girls, winning five out of six sets to earn the 11-7 victory. Ramona beat Valley Center 15-3. Failla and Douglass won all three sets as Valley Center could only win one game against Ramona’s top two singles players. Bowersox won two sets and Hanna Kent played tough in her 4-6 loss. Ramona’s top two doubles teams won five of the six sets. Dunker and Vaca went 6-1, 6-2 and 6-0. Owens and Vizcarra posted scores of 6-2, 4-6 and 6-1. Lopresti and Virgilio also picked up 2 team points with scores of 7-5, 2-6 and 6-1. Orange Glen was no match for the Lady Dawgs

as Ramona romped to a 17-1 league victory. Failla won her only set 6-0 as she finished the week by serving seven bagels (6-0 wins) in seven sets. Kent won her matches, 7-5 and 6-1. Douglass won 3 team points and Bowersox won two sets. Ramona’s top two dou-

bles teams, Dunker and Vaca and Owens and Vizcarra, also served up an all bagel menu winning six sets 6-0. Virgilio and Lopresti won three sets with scores of 6-3, 6-3 and 6-0. After the Valley League showdown against Del Norte, Ramona will compete in the Valley League

individuals and doubles tournament and the CIF team tournament. Failla has a very good shot at winning the Valley League singles tourney and the CIF singles tourney. Dunker and Vaca are also contenders for the league doubles crown and could make a run deep into the CIF doubles tourney.

Volleyball team reaches gold bracket of Southern California tournament By JOE NAIMAN After being relegated to the consolation bracket of the squad’s first two tournaments of 2013, Ramona High School’s girls volleyball team advanced to the gold bracket of the Oct. 18 and 19 Southern California Invitational tournament hosted by Foothills Christian High School. “We’re really happy that we were able to finish up stronger than we had,” said Coach Connie Halfaker. Ramona’s 3-2 record in

the tournament left the Bulldogs with a season record of 16-8 following their elimination. A Valley League victory at Oceanside earlier in the week gave the Bulldogs a 2-2 league mark. The Oct. 16 win over Oceanside involved 2522, 25-16, and 25-10 games in Ramona’s favor. “That went just fine. We had the opportunity to put in a new defense that we had been working on,” Halfaker said. The Bulldogs utilized a

rotation defense. “It worked really well. It played to our strengths, so that’s really nice,” Halfaker said. Robyn Arthur led the Bulldogs with seven blocks, Natalie Seol added six blocks, and Callie Guasti recorded five blocks. “Our blocking was really stellar,” Halfaker said. “When you block well it causes them to not be able to run an offense like they See VOLLEYBALL, page 27

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. 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

Time to review Medicare coverage By DAVID SAYEN Medicare’s annual open enrollment period has begun, and I want to encourage everyone with Medicare to review their current health and prescription drug coverage. Open enrollment runs through Dec. 7. If you want to change your Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D (prescription drug) plan, this is the time of year to do it. Any new coverage you select will kick in on Jan. 1. If you have Original Medicare and you’re satisfied with it, you don’t need to do anything during open enrollment. Also, Medicare’s open enrollment has nothing to do with the Affordable Care Act’s new Health Insurance Marketplace. If you have Medicare, you don’t need to worry about Marketplace plans. My agency, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, announced recently that the average Medicare Advantage premium for 2014 is projected to be $32.60. CMS estimated that the average basic Part D drug premium in 2014 would be $31 per month, holding steady for four years in a row. Since the Affordable Care Act was passed, average Medicare Advantage premiums are down by 9.8 percent. The deductible for standard Part D drug plans in 2014 will be $310, a $15 decline. Meanwhile, the quality of Medicare Advantage and Part D drug plans continues to improve, with more than one-third of Medicare Advantage plans receiving four or more stars (out of a possible five stars) in 2014, a 28 percent increase over last year. Medicare Advantage and Part D drug plans with five stars are allowed to enroll beneficiaries at any time during the year. Medicare plan coverage options and costs can change each year, and Medicare beneficiaries should evaluate their coverage and choices and select the plan that best meets their needs. If you think your current coverage will meet your needs for 2014, you don’t need to

change anything. For more information on Medicare open enrollment and to compare benefits and prices of 2014 Medicare Advantage and Part D drug plans, visit www. cms.gov/Center/Special-Topic/Open-Enrollment-Center.html. A variety of resources are available to help compare current coverage with new plan offerings for 2014: •Visit www.medicare.gov to see plan coverage and costs available in your area and enroll in a new plan if you decide to make a change. •Call 1-800-633-4227 for aroundthe-clock assistance to learn more about coverage options. •Review the 2014 “Medicare & You” handbook mailed to the homes of people with Medicare. It’s also online at: www. medicare.gov/pubs/pdf/10050.pdf. •Get one-on-one counseling assistance from the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP). Local SHIP contact information can be found at www.medicare.gov/contacts/organization-search-criteria.aspx, on the back of the “Medicare & You” handbook, or by calling Medicare. People with Medicare who have limited income and resources may qualify for Extra Help paying for their Part D drug plan. There’s no cost or obligation to apply for Extra Help, also called the lowincome subsidy. To apply, go to www. socialsecurity.gov/prescriptionhelp or call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213. Watch out for scammers during open enrollment season. Don’t give personal information to anyone who comes to your home uninvited or makes an unsolicited phone call to sell you Medicarerelated products or services. If you believe you’re a victim of fraud or identity theft, contact 1-800-633-4227. More information is at www.stopmedicarefraud. gov. David Sayen is Medicare’s regional administrator for Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada and the Pacific Territories.

A former Ramona man who spent seven hours on a roof on Aug. 3 following a vandalism spree has pleaded guilty to three felony vandalism charges. Sentencing for Raymond Joseph Ramos, 29, is set for Nov. 6 before El Cajon Superior Court Judge John Thompson. Court records say the maximum sentence is five years and four months in state prison. There is a notation on a court document that says the judge may consider imposing 16 months in prison. Ramos could also be placed on probation with a year or less in county jail. He will likely be ordered to pay for damages to two businesses and vehicles. Ramos had been in jail until early October when someone posted $51,000 bond for him. He now lives in Palm Springs, court records say. On a plea document, Ramos wrote that he “damaged the property of others X 3.” Ramos is alleged to have been under the

the spree. The incident began around 7:45 a.m. when Ramos broke windows to a taco shop and hair salon at a shopping center on San Vicente Road in San Diego Country Estates. A pick-up truck was also damaged as was a condominium unit in the 16000 block of Arena Drive. When Ramos fled and climbed on a roof, he ripped off roof tiles and threw them down on cars and broke some windshields. Deputies tried to persuade Ramos to come down from the roof, and he eventually did after seven hours, said Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth Renner. Deputies testified in the preliminary hearing that Ramos appeared to them to be under the influence of methamphetamine. He was charged with being under the influence of meth, but that count and two other vandalism charges were dismissed after he pleaded guilty to three counts.

Power plays give Jaguars edge over Water Dawgs By JOE NAIMAN During Ramona High School’s Oct. 16 boys water polo match, Valley Center converted on six of seven power plays in the Jaguars’ 15-10 win while the Bulldogs converted on two of seven man-up situations. “We’ve just got to do a better job on man-down defense and do a better job of going on man-up,” said Coach Donnie Williams. In water polo, the penalty for a player committing an infraction calls for that player to be excluded from the pool for 20 seconds of play or until the opponent scores. Valley Center’s 3-1 lead at the end of the first quarter included a pair of manup goals for the Jaguars. The visitors scored the

initial goal of the second period for a 4-1 lead, and the teams then exchanged goals until Valley Center had a 6-3 advantage. The Jaguars scored the final goal of the first half for a 7-3 lead. “I tried to get the guys to focus on playing solid defense, not making mistakes,” Williams said of his halftime address to Ramona’s players. A man-up goal for Ramona began the thirdquarter scoring, but the Bulldogs were unable to convert on a subsequent man-up opportunity which would have narrowed Valley Center’s lead to two scores. The Jaguars scored on the transition after Ramona’s missed opportunity. The Bulldogs had the next two successful shots to make the score 8-6.

Valley Center entered the final period with a 10-6 lead after scoring twice in the third quarter’s final minute, including once on a man-up situation. The Jaguars converted all three of their extra-player opportunities in the fourth period. “We executed at times well, but defensive mental breakdowns were causing us to give up too many goals,” Williams said. Ramona and Valley Center had both entered the game with 2-0 records in Valley League play, and

The Ramona Mitey Dawgs remain undefeated after their eighth game with a 33-7 win against Vista. Despite a bone-chilling injury to Dawgs’ quarterback Brayden Nungesser, the Mitey Dawgs rallied together, pumped up by Brayden’s twin brother Colin Nungesser, and Peyton Silva and Josiah Bowman, and fought hard to overcome the loss of their leader, reported the team. Before Brayden’s injury, he tackled and secured a fourth down turnover to give the Dawgs the ball. After a pass off and small run, the ball was stripped by Vista. As the runner was heading for the in-zone,

Del Norte also took a 2-0 mark into the Nighthawks’ game that day, so the loss put Ramona at a disadvantage for a potential league championship. “It was a big game,” Williams said. Ramona’s record stood at 8-10 overall as well as 2-1 in league play following the defeat. The Bulldogs’ junior varsity team won two of five games at the San Diego Open JV Tournament. The varsity San Diego Open tournament will be played Thursday through Saturday.

Brayden caught up and tackled the player, preventing the touchdown. The intense impact of the players colliding into the ground, left Brayden holding a mangled forearm. He was rushed to Rady Children’s Hospital and treated for broken bones in his forearm. The team dedicated its win to him. Coaches said the defense had a phenomenal game holding Vista to only one touchdown. Mitey Dawg touchdowns were made by Josiah Bowman (3), and Gabriel Lutz (2). This was an emotional and intense game for the Mitey Dawgs’ team, which has an amazing chemistry and commitment to one another, said parent Melodie Nungesser. Noting that Brayden’s leadership and position will be missed as he recovers, Coach Manny Lutz said, “Those are some big shoes to fill and we are asking Brayden to come and help coach whoever fills in for him for the remaining two games.”

Christina Barrameda contributed five digs to lead the team in that statistic. Sammy Shupe distributed the ball for 15 assists. Ramona’s Oct. 18 tournament matches were played at Grossmont College. A 25-11, 25-15 victory over Helix to begin pool play included six kills by Guasti and 14 assists for

Shupe. The Bulldogs needed three games to defeat San Pasqual. Ramona won the first game by a 2523 score, but the Golden Eagles took a 25-15 victory in the second game. Ramona’s 15-11 triumph in game three settled the match. “We did our really nice fall behind and come back trick,” Halfaker said. Arthur led the team with 11 kills against San Pasqual. Saddleback Valley Chris-

Arthur had nine kills with Seol adding seven kills. Seol and Guasti had four blocks apiece. Barrameda and Shupe each had two serving aces. Sydney Hickle

The Bulldogs began the contest with a 25-22 victory. The Eagles evened the match with a 25-15 triumph in the following set. The deciding game was a 15-11 result with Ramona on the desirable end of the score. Arthur led the Bulldogs with 10 kills. Hickle had 11 digs while Barrameda contributed 10 digs. Shupe

provided 19 assists. Ramona’s only elimination match in the tournament was a three-game loss to San Dieguito Academy. The Mustangs won the first game by a 25-9 score and had an 8-point lead in the second game. Ramona overcame the game two deficit to win by a 26-24 overscore. “The hallmark of our team is to just keep playing ball,” said the coach. The Mustangs took an 8-1 lead in the third game. The two teams split the final 14 points, giving San Dieguito Academy a 15-8

triumph. The coach still commended her players’ performance in the tournament. “You can’t control your win, but you can control what you do on your side in response to what’s happening,” she said. “I’m very proud of them.” The Bulldogs were swept by Del Norte in an Oct. 9 league match on the Nighthawks’ court, but Ramona will seek payback Thursday evening at home. “We are really looking forward to having that crack at Del Norte again,” Halfaker said.
