Workshop focuses on revitalization Community discusses how to achieve vitality while protecting DM’s character

■ Human resources exec key to Scripps turnaround. Page 4

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Wider sidewalks, twolane roundabouts and an increased height limit were among ideas that garnered overwhelming support at a Del Mar Village revitalization workshop held on Oct. 20. The purpose of the

event, which more than 80 people attended, was to get suggestions and answer questions about revitalization, which will extend six blocks along Camino del Mar from 9th to 15th Streets. Planning and Community Development Director Kathleen Garza also staffed an outreach booth at

the Del Mar Taste and Art Stroll event on Oct. 2, and Del Mar City officials are calling for more continued public input. The revitalization plan is scheduled to be completed by the end of next summer and go to public vote in November 2012. Four council members were present at the work-

shop and community members sat at circular tables, each headed by a Del Mar staff member. Garza opened the workshop by explaining the process and goals of revitalization, and led attendees through a number of topics, including traffic lanes, parking, sidewalks, floor area ratio and building

height. “This isn’t the end all,” she said. “This is just be beginning.” Garza said city staff has “taken great pains” to stay consistent with the Del Mar Community Plan that was written in 1976, which out-

Del Mar resident named Silver Age Yoga’s ‘Teacher of the Year’

Bill Davidson named to national Builder Magazine Hall of Fame for Design Del Mar homebuilder Bill Davidson, more than a dozen times recognized locally for outstanding new home design, was inducted Oct. 12 into the national Builder Magazine’s Hall of Fame for Design Excellence. Davidson’s induction in the Wm. S. Marvin Hall of Fame for Design Excellence took place during the 31st annual Builder’s Choice Awards Gala in Washington DC. The honor recognizes Bill Davidson Builder’s Choice-winning architects and builders who have a legacy of award-winning designs. “Since he began building new homes in California more than 30 years ago, Bill Davidson has displayed a deep reverence for design, exceptional attention to detail, and a knack for understanding home buyers that time and again has elevated his neighborhoods to award-winning status,” said Denise Dersin, editor in chief of Builder magazine. “We are very pleased to be able to recognize Bill’s longstanding commitment to design.”

Silver Age Yoga recently announced that the first “Silver Age Yoga Teacher of the Year” award has been given to Bob Spindler for his tremendous commitment to supporting its mission with his volunteer efforts. “Bob is a man of tremendous enthusiasm and energy,” said Silver Age Yoga founder Frank Iszak. As an entrepreneur traveling all over the country to help his corporate clients Bob Spindler motivate their employees with large training events, Spindler found yoga a great destressor. He took classes while traveling and when at home in Del Mar. One day he took a free seniors’ yoga class at the Riford Center in La Jolla, which was sponsored by Silver Age Yoga Community Outreach (SAYCO), a 501(c)3 non-profit. Spindler says, “When I attended this class and witnessed the interest and fun these older students were having, I was impressed and hooked!” He was encouraged to become a SAYCO instructor by Carolyn Boline, then the SAYCO teacher at the Riford Center. Spindler committed to become a Silver Age Yoga teacher and completed his basic 200-hour-level training in March 2007. He soon completed the Silver Age Yoga OnLine Certification course and the Silver Age Yoga Advanced Hands on Training Program. In April 2007 Spindler began teaching SAYCO classes. To date he has taught well over 450 free yoga classes to hundreds of seniors without compensation. He is and has served on Silver Age Yoga’s board of directors for five years. Spindler comes to every major event sponsored by or for Silver Age Yoga and has volunteered his talents at their retreats and health fairs. He currently teaches five SAYCO classes at the Riford Center in La Jolla, St. Peter’s in Del Mar, University City Older Adult Center and the Jewish Family Service Coop Apartment Activity Center. In addition to teaching five SAYCO classes a week, Spindler also enjoys attending yoga classes at different yoga studios. When possible he also attends yoga workshops to further hone his yoga teaching skills. For more information contact:

Human resources executive plays a crucial role in contributing to turnaround at Scripps Health BY ARTHUR LIGHTBOURN Contributor Vic Buzachero, (pronounced “Buzz-a-kero�) is Scripps Health’s corporate senior vice president of innovation, human resources and performance management, a hefty title, to be sure, but one that accurately describes the scope of his contribution to the remarkable turnaround of Scripps Health over the past 10 years. Earlier this month, in recognition of his achievements, Buzachero was named to HR [Human Resource] Executive Magazine’s Honor Roll for 2011 and in an accompanying article was headlined as “The Turnaround Kid.� He especially appreciated the ‘kid’ part, Buzachero said, “now that I’m 60.� Also recently, Scripps Health, the San Diego-based nonprofit community health system of five acutecare hospitals and 23 outpatient clinics staffed by 13,200 employees and 2,500 affiliated physicians, was

ranked by AARP as the No. 1 company in the U.S. for workers over age 50. “We consider Scripps to be a career destination company,� Buzachero said, “therefore we design our human resources programs to appeal to all people, no matter what stage of life they may be in. Approximately 36 percent of our workforce is age 50 or older, and we work to retain them because the knowledge they pass down ultimately results in better outcomes for our patients.� Recently, for the fourth year in a row, Fortune Magazine named Scripps Health as one of the 100 best companies in the nation to work for, and, for the seventh consecutive year, Working Mother magazine recognized it as a top employer of working moms and this year ranked it as #11 of the top 100 companies for its learning opportunities, flexible work schedules, on-site daycare and adoption benefits program. We interviewed Buzach-

ero in his office at Scripps Health’s headquarters in La Jolla. He’s a tall, well-built man with slightly graying hair, who, to keep in shape for the winter snow-ski season, works out “constantly� — running, training with weights, and climbing the stairs to his second floor office several times a day rather than ride the elevator. Talking across neatlystacked piles of papers on his desk, Buzachero readily concedes “I’m not a cleandesk guy,� but he is an avid jotter of ideas in a little black book that invariably accompanies him wherever he goes; and on occasion — in a bow to technology — substitutes his iPad to record the continual flow of ideas and “to do’s.� “Sometimes even the best idea is not a good idea until the timing is right,� he says. Buzachero was recruited by Scripps Health in September 2001 at a time of crisis when the then 77-year-old Scripps was on life support

and hoping to recover and restore itself under its new president and CEO Chris Van Gorder as “a workplace of choice.� Scripps had ousted its former CEO, doctors had fled, there was a labor shortage, the company was facing significant operating losses, and the human resources department was foundering. The company’s new leadership convinced Buzachero of their belief that Scripps’ employees were crucial to revitalizing the company’s brand and culture — it just needed someone to create a human resource department that would carry out that philosophy. “Given that foundation,� Buzachero recalled, “I felt Scripps was the right place to be able to accomplish a turnaround.� Before joining Scripps, Buzachero had developed an HR reputation in Alabama, Texas, Arizona and Washington for leadership development, service excellence, reductions in employee turnover and improved employee satisfaction — exactly what Scripps was looking for. Buzachero was born, in SEE SCRIPPS, PAGE 15

WORKSHOP continued from page 1 lined maintenance of Village character, commercialresidential mixed use of space and alternative transportation options, among other themes. She pointed out that 49 percent of leased space in downtown Del Mar belongs to offices, 16 percent to retail, 13 percent to restaurants and one percent to housing. The city is seeking input on how to add housing, which city planner Matt Bator said could include units that aren’t large and high-end, and cater to students or part-time residents. Councilman Terry Sinnott said city staff wants to keep with the “smart growth concept,� which concentrates growth in compact, walkable, urban centers to avoid sprawl, decrease use of cars and advocate bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly use of space. Planners and city staff have pointed to both Encinitas and Bird Rock as good examples of revitalization — Encinitas for its parking, traffic and walkability, and Bird Rock for its successful implementation of roundabouts. In regard to parking, Bator said planners are trying to cater not only to short-term drivers, patrons who quickly visit shops, but also to long-term drivers like employees of local businesses. City planners are working toward making

parking more regular and continuous. There are currently a number of types of parking spots, including diagonal, parallel and townand-country, which means half of the space is on public property and half is on private property. Some businesses allow parking in their front yard, which some say congests sidewalks. Parking was a more contentious issue presented at the workshop, but was not discussed in detail because a parking study is underway by Del Mar’s Environmental Impact Report consultant. Options include use of permits, increased diagonal parking, on-street meters and incentives for private properties that provide parking. Three options for traffic on Camino del Mar were presented, the most popular being a reduction from four to two lanes, with the addition of roundabouts. Other options include maintaining the current four-lane structure, or keeping two northbound lanes with a reduction to one lane going southbound. A few attendees pointed out that if drivers find slowed traffic in Del Mar to be annoying, they may opt for the freeway, reducing the number of cars on Camino del Mar. “What I’ve learned is that well-designed roundabouts give pedestrians an easy, safe way to get across the street because cars have to slow down,� Sinnott



Richard Stone


studies have shown FAR is what drives developers to “build a box.� To avoid this, an idea was presented that would allow an additional four feet on the height limit specifically for roof articulation that would add character and shape to buildings. The height limit on Camino del Mar is currently 26 feet on the east side and 14 feet on the west side of the street, however, some businesses on the west side of the street are higher than 14 feet because that height limit was put in place after their construction. Because of this, some businesses have refrained from redeveloping to avoid losing floor space. “That’s why many of them have not changed,� Garza said. Bator said more density means more people and more commerce, but also it calls for more parking. “It’s a complex puzzle,� he said, adding that FAR is like the “holy grail� of the community. Each attendee turned in a questionnaire about topics discussed at the workshop and a summary of findings will be presented at a City Council meeting in November. Those unable to attend are encouraged to complete the survey at More information can be found by visiting the City’s website or by emailing

said. Another idea presented for crossing at the 15th Street intersection is the “scramble� concept, which halts vehicles in all directions while pedestrians cross from all four corners at once. Planning manager Adam Birnbaum said Bird Rock experiences a higher level of traffic than Del Mar, according to studies, and that community would be a good model for Del Mar as opposed to the roundabouts in Leucadia, which are not in a commercial corridor. A highly expressed need for Del Mar Village is wide sidewalks that include a buffer between traffic and pedestrians, as well as an interface between parked vehicles and street furnishings. The Village’s sidewalks currently range from five to 14 feet, and are discontinuous and inconsistent from block to block. Opinions were diverse in regard to floor area ratio (FAR), the total floor area of buildings in relation to the size of the land of that location. Attendees discussed whether there should be limit on FAR and, if so, what it should be. Del Mar’s FAR is currently at 45 percent, while La Jolla is at 130 percent, the Cedros Design District is at 100 percent and Old Town is at 60 percent. Some said it would benefit the community to lift FAR restrictions. Councilman Carl Hilliard said

The Buy Back will be held on Thursday, Nov. 3, between 3-7 p.m. at North County Dance Arts in Carmel Country Plaza. The child must be present and must have or make a card for the troops in order to receive their cash.

Local production company celebrates positive power of film with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Grave Secretsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY MATT LIEBOWITZ Contributor So many movies that make it to theatres are flashy, good-looking and glossy but ultimately vacuous. For kids, that usually goes double â&#x20AC;&#x201D; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sugary, high-calorie doses of entertainment overload with no redeeming value, no takeaway message. Mantooth Films is out to change that, one film and one story at a time. Dale Strack & Patti Judd â&#x20AC;&#x153;Storytelling unites us,â&#x20AC;? said Dale Strack, who, along with Patti Judd and Emmy award-winning producer Tonya Mantooth, runs the Rancho Santa Fe-based film company Mantooth Films. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love to read good stories and tell good stories â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we explain and teach through stories.â&#x20AC;? The three-person production teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love of solid storytelling is on full display in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grave Secrets.â&#x20AC;? Starring Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Diane Ladd and Jennifer Stone from the popular Disney series â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wizards of Waverly Place,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grave Secrets,â&#x20AC;? is Mantooth Filmsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; adaptation of the book of the same name, written in 1997 by New Jersey sisters Annette and Gina Cascone and published under the name A.G. Cascone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grave Secretsâ&#x20AC;? is the eighth book in the 17-book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deadtime Storiesâ&#x20AC;? series of horror fiction novels, widely lauded not only for their entertainment but also for their kidfriendly bent and positive message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re over the moon about â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grave Secret,â&#x20AC;? Strack, a local entrepreneur, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting because it [â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deadtime Storiesâ&#x20AC;?] is a series based on great stores, and the evidence is in the cast. When Diane Ladd and Jennifer Stone want to be a part of it, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to do projects that have great stories that convey a lesson and make people think and grow,â&#x20AC;? Strack added. Tonya Mantooth said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grave Secrets,â&#x20AC;? co-produced with filmmaking brothers Scott and David Hillenbrand (from the

A scene from the upcoming â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deadtime Stories: Grave Secretsâ&#x20AC;? featuring Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jennifer Stone as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Babysitter.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;National Lampoon Presents Dorm Dazeâ&#x20AC;? franchise), includes â&#x20AC;&#x153;very real, clever kid dialogueâ&#x20AC;? and wraps its message in a fun and eerie plot. And for some real-time reassurance before the film comes out â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slated to be released in early 2012 in theatres, DVD and TV â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mantooth and her partners prescreened the humorous horror flick to perhaps the toughest audience: a group of 11-year-olds. The results gave the producers a serious dose of encouragement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was beyond like, they loved it,â&#x20AC;? said Judd, a San Diego native who brought her years of expertise in branding, publicity and marketing to Mantooth Films. The week before showing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grave Secretsâ&#x20AC;? to their own children, the Mantooth team screened it for a focus group of 30 tweens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twenty-nine of 30 said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see it again,â&#x20AC;? Judd said. The fun, however, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just in the final product. Judd, Mantooth and Strack said the 16-day shoot, done off-lot in neighborhoods in Los Angeles and Ventura, was a wonderful experience, and often saw the set department totally trans-

forming the facades of homes. They even invited local kids into scenes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a blast working on the film,â&#x20AC;? Mantooth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That old saying about never working with child actors didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold up on this project. The entire cast and crew were simply amazing.â&#x20AC;? Of course, like any largescale creative venture, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grave Secretsâ&#x20AC;? had its challenges. But the team was ready and embraced the multi-pronged process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a balancing act,â&#x20AC;? Strack said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many moving parts, and lots of people bring their talent and skill; orchestrating all these people was fascinating.â&#x20AC;? Mantooth agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Tonya Mantooth with one of have to love all the moving her numerous Emmy wins. parts, and we do,â&#x20AC;? she said. Speaking about her colleagues, Mantooth sees each personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s particular skills as integral to the success of the final product. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We complement each other, and we all love managing all these big shifting pieces.â&#x20AC;? The end result is, of course, what the trio behind Mantooth Films is most excited about. And, fresh from recently seeing the film in its entirety, they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happier about the way it all came together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you can step back, look at what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve produced on screen and see the reaction, from laughing to crying to invoking discussion, and you get something that can live on, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing,â&#x20AC;? Strack said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grave Secretsâ&#x20AC;? is just the beginning of Mantoothâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission: also in post- production is the thriller â&#x20AC;&#x153;Killer Holiday.â&#x20AC;? And Mantooth films is also working on the social drama â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bone Gameâ&#x20AC;? and another â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deadtime Storiesâ&#x20AC;? revamp, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Witching Game.â&#x20AC;?

His favorite hike ONE VIEW He walks south from the trailhead. The sky is clear and blue and perfect. Ground squirrels scramble over the GORDON rocks. The CLANTON earth is North Coast smooth, tan columnist streaked with gray. He fixes his gaze on the left side of the trail, deciding to focus on the other side only on the walk back. A sandstone cliff rises on his left until it towers far above him, 100 feet of sheer pale-orange sandstone, pock-marked by wind and water and time. Like Adam in that longago Garden, like the native people who lived here before him, he had given names not only to the animals, but also to the natural features of the land. This formation, with hints of Monument Valley, he called the “Arizona Cliff.” In a nest on a narrow ledge of rock halfway up the wall, a pair of presumably monogamous Peregrine falcons feed their young. At the foot of the cliff, the carcasses of other birds attest to the predatory prowess of the falcons, the fastest animals alive, reaching 200 mph during their hunting dive. Further south, the cliff face is interrupted by an inverted triangle of ascending curved

green terraces, a formation he called the “Amphitheater.” Further along, the cliff face breaks itself into a kaleidoscope of pastel colors no one knows the names of. This “Painted Cliff” is marked by a deep hollow with caramel-colored rock, vertically streaked with a frozen brown veil — the “German Chocolate Cave.” And now the path is blocked by a flat chunk of gray rock about 10 feet high, perhaps 50 by 50 feet in area, roughly the shape of Arkansas, with a bath-tub-sized rectangular hole cut about where Little Rock would be. Water pools around the base of the “Flat Rock.” The water is the edge of the Pacific Ocean, now on his left as he walks back north. The water is cobalt blue and turquoise, accented with the white lace of surf. The air smells of salt and kelp. Dolphins laze along in the shallows, sometimes bursting through the curling face of a wave to momentarily reveal themselves whole. A hooded fisherman catches and releases a leopard shark about a cubit in length. Squadrons of brown pelicans swoop low, disappearing behind the sunlit wave crests. Several elegant white great egrets feed in the smooth wet sand as the waves retreat. The seagulls feast here, too — George and Katey and their chicks, Steven, Jonathan, and Livingston. Gordon Clanton teaches sociology at San Diego State University. He welcomes comments at

Dec. 7: A Date of Infamy On 10/10/10 I was 69 years old. On 10/10/11, I was 70 years old and on Dec. 7, 2011 it will be 70 years since the Empire of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor Naval Base, Hawaii, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s speech on Sunday, Dec. 8, 1941 described the previous day as “a date which will live in infamy.” On Dec. 7, 1941 my mother, Irene Duffy, and her girlfriend, Jessie Kelly, were together on Staten Island, NY, that fateful day holding each other and holding me, age two months and Kate Kelly, age three months. These two best friends promised each other to be together on Dec. 7 no matter what they were doing for as long as they could, and they did. Later, if they could not get together because of job opportunities elsewhere or family commitments, they called each other. Year after year they faithfully followed-up on their promise to each other to keep in touch on Dec. 7. When my mother died in April 1982, my Dad picked up the tradition for her and called Jessie for the upcoming Dec. 7, and when Dad died in 1983, I continued the tradition. I picked up the phone and called Jessie. It was a very tearful conversation that first Dec. 7, 1983 when I placed that call because of all the flooding memories. As the years past it became more difficult to locate Jessie because as she got older, she began to spend more and more time with each of her six children. Every year on Dec. 7, I never knew where I would find her, but wherever I did, she was always glad to spend a few minutes with me on the telephone. She made me feel closer to Mom and Dad as we reminisced the past and forecast the future. Then in 1990 Jessie died. I hesitated at first to make the traditional Dec. 7 call to her daughter that year, but I did not want the 49-year tradition to end, so I picked up the phone once again on

Dec. 7 and called Jessie’s youngest daughter, Roz, whom I had never met. Over the years since, Roz and I called each other on that date which will live in infamy and exchanged family news. Roz and her sisters and brothers even came to San Diego on their boat one year to visit me and my family after we left Staten Island in 1999. So then I finally got to meet her and her grown up siblings whom I played with many years ago. Three years ago I met Roz and Kate again in Florida with my sister, Irene, after we had all retired. We shared many memories of our parents and the many wondrous days we all spent together so long ago. This past January, 2011 I had the opportunity for the first time in almost 70 years to visit the Memorial to the Battleship U.S.S. Arizona which was sunk on Dec. 7, 1941 in Pearl Harbor off the island of Oahu, Hawaii. This memorial is in honor of the memory of those brave men and women who died on that date of infamy. The silence of the thousands of visitors present was inspiring. To this day, we were told by the docent, oil continues to escape from the Arizona’s oil tanks far below the water after 70 years under the ocean. Now, as Dec. 7, 2011 is quickly approaching I cannot believe I will be 70 years old and a more than 70-year friendship continues to unfold. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those lost on the day Pearl Harbor was bombed, and a 70-year friendship between two best friends and their extended families continues to be alive and flourishing. Perhaps, after me, my daughter will continue this tradition, the tradition of two best friends, and truly, this will be “a date which will live in infamy.” Diane B. Tyson Solana Beach

DM Rotarians celebrate community at 3rd Annual Chili and Quackers Challenge fundraiser BY EMILY FIGUEIREDO, PUBLICITY CHAIR FOR THE ROTARY CLUB OF DEL MAR The simple act of walking down Camino Del Mar and taking in the view from Powerhouse Park is all you need to be reminded of how breathtaking Del Mar truly is. In our daily lives we can get busy and forget that we are so fortunate to live in a place of such beauty. But in addition to the landscape, Del Mar’s sense of community togetherness is second to none. The Rotarians of Del Mar celebrated this on Oct. 15 for the 3rd Annual Chili and Quackers Challenge fundraiser event. The event was a success with fun had by all in attendance, from chili cookers and tasters to children playing and others winning prizes. The sunny day greeted families, adults and grandparents to mingle, eat, drink and remember there is a responsibility to take care of one another. Club President Sharyn Daly said, “I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to watch the great fun that was enjoyed by all at Powerhouse Park. How wonderful to all join together to serve our great community of Del Mar!” The Rotary Club of Del Mar would like to thank Steigerwald Dougherty, Val Meyers State Farm Insurance, The Fish Market, Wells Fargo Bank, Pinky’s Big Top Circus, Sharyn Daly Coldwell Banker, Stratford Square, Matthias C. Kurth M.D. PhD, Resource Flooring, Vickie Lavanty Salon, Affiliated Dental Specialists, the Del Mar Times and the Del Mar Lifeguards for all of their support! The event raised money for various charitable projects that the Rotary Club of Del Mar supports. Many of these projects are right here in our own backyard to keep the North County Coastal area beautiful and community oriented. Each year, the Community Service group of the club supports Del

Mar and the neighboring communities with their time, talent and treasure. This includes providing equipment for St. Leo’s Medical and Dental clinic for anyone needing care, regardless of their background or economic standing. It also includes partnering with Jimmy O’s for a BBQ during the Del Mar Art Stroll each October, sponsoring underprivileged children to attend summer camp at the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA, putting on a Christmas party complete with Santa and gifts for the children of the local Head Start program and helping to improve the La Colonia Branch of the San Dieguito Ken Lee, Randy Gruber, and Boys and Girls Clubs.

SCRIPPS continued from page 4 Panama City, Florida, of Italian heritage and grew up in Alabama. “My dad was a ‘lifer’ in the military for more than 30 years,” Buzachero said. “Initially, because he was a skier and spoke Italian, he served with the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division fighting the Germans in the Italian Alps during WW II and later joined the Air Force as a commissioned officer, who when he retired went to work as a civil servant in the Space Race at the Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, where [Wernher] von Braun and all the German scientists were building rockets [for the U.S. Army].” Von Braun, a former Nazi war hero and scientist, eventually was appointed director of NASA’s rocket development of the Saturn rockets that propelled American astronauts to the moon. Buzachero earned his B.B.A. degree in industrial relations from the University of Alabama in 1974. All through school, he had worked in fast-food restaurants. In college, he managed two restaurants and after a brief stint in sales and marketing at a radio station in Decatur, Alabama — where he met and married his wife, Nancy — he returned to restaurant management and subsequently purchased two fast-food franchises in Decatur and Birmingham with his brother-in-law. From his experience in the fast-food business, he learned the critical importance of hiring the right people and developing an engaged team. His first job in human resources in the health field was creating campaigns on radio, television and at colleges to recruit nurses for a hospital in Birmingham, in the late 1970s. Subsequently, he himself was recruited by the Baptist Health System, also in Birmingham, as a compensation manager and later promoted to corporate vice president of human resources. He then co-founded an HR health consultancy in Cincinnati. It was successful, but it required a lot of travel, he said, and, at the time, he and his wife had two small children, so after three-and-

Over the past 10 years, Buzachero is credited with starting each fiscal year with a workforce strategic plan to define the HR plan going forward and communicating it to the staff. He then developed a strategy to lower the company’s reliance on temporary, premium-paid registered nurses from 20 percent in 2001 to below 8 percent today, resulting in a more stable permanent staff and more than $100 million in reduced labor costs annually. He and his staff also created a new compensation strategy for nurses that includes salary reviews every six months with merit increases and bonuses for increased patient satisfaction that has helped reduce the turnover rate of RNs from 25


percent in 2002 to 8.6 percent last year. Also, in 2002, Buzachero launched the first, company-wide annual employee engagement survey which initially indicated that only 58 percent of its employees considered Scripps a great place to work. In 2010, that figure climbed to 88 percent. “We don’t just survey, but we use that information to work with employees to make direct improvements in the workplace,” Buzachero said. “By staying on the cycle and coming back to the employees after first getting feed-back, talking with them, doing action plans, after a couple of years people began to trust … that we were going to do what we said we would do.” The two questions asked in the survey are: What makes this a good place to work and what would make this a better place? The last survey generated some 2,000 pages of comments. “Chris [Van Gorder] and I read them. We read them all,” Buzachero said. “And we do something about them.”

BY MARK DAUGHTERS, INTERLACED INC. Apple just unveiled their latest iPhone. The iPhone fiv... wait. iPhone 4S? Huh? This can’t be right. Apple must have missed a bad auto-correction when typing this up. I mean, this phone has a faster processor, amazing camera, 4G speeds, stronger cell reception, and a totally new voice activated assistant feature. It has to be the iPhone 5. On paper, the only thing the iPhone 4S doesn’t have that the iPhone 5 was “supposed” to have is a new outer case and a bigger screen. This raises a good question, would people who are disappointed with the iPhone 4S be satisfied with the exact same phone if it were simply called the iPhone 5? “That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” This naming structure is suggesting that Apple is in a two year release pattern to help people cope with the long two-year carrier agreements they sign with the purchase of new iPhones. Remember the iPhone 3GS came out after the iPhone 3G, and was seen as a modest upgrade. But for those who had the original iPhone the upgrade was too good to pass up. Perhaps this generation phone isn’t meant to entice people with the iPhone 4, so much as the people with the iPhone 3Gs. Most people (who are not insane, like myself.) don’t upgrade their phone every year. Apple can take their time and focus on making great software strides one year, and then great hardware improvements the next. This is all an assumption, as this is only Apple’s fifth iPhone release. Could Apple keep this same design next year? Very possible. John Gruber of points out: “Apple isn’t going to make a new form factor just for the sake of newness itself — they make changes only if the changes make things decidedly better. Thinner, stronger, smaller, more efficient. If they don’t have a new design that brings about such adjectives, they’re going to stick with what they have.” Regarding screen size. Apple has never change the size of their iPhone display. Ever. It seems obvious that they’ve figured out the best size screen for their phones through

years of research and development. Even though other competitors phones might have a huge screen, does that mean it is better? By that rationale the bigger screen, the better phone. Want a 10 inch screen on your iPhone? Buy an iPad. Apple does an amazing job of doing all the legwork to make sure that we don’t get a feature that actually makes the experience worse. Have they even tried an iPhone with a bigger screen? Of course. Smaller screens too. I’m sure the great minds in Cupertino have tried designs we can’t event think of. But they picked the current size screen for a reason. It makes the most sense for a device we use with our thumbs. A larger screen would make vital areas of the screen unreachable when using the device with one hand. Thus making the overall experience of using the phone worse. What makes this phone stand apart the most is Siri. The new voice command system that’s built into the iPhone, that make something like writing a newspaper article about the new iPhone as simple as talking. You can ask Siri anything from “Text my wife that I’m running late to dinner” to “Where Is the nearest Apple store?” to “How many cups in a gallon?” Siri delivers correct results immediately, and sometimes with some sass. Telling Siri to “Shut up” gets a “Did I deserve that?” come back. What I’m probably going to use Siri for most, is reading and replying to text messages. This can be done while the phone is still in my pocket while driving over my cars Bluetooth system. For those of you with an iPhone 4 already, is this a worthy upgrade? That depends. Are you crazy like me and buy anything with an Apple logo on it as soon as it comes out? If so then this is the phone for you! If you have an older iPhone you’ll be very pleased with all the enhancements that have happened since you upgraded last. If you’re using an Android or a BlackBerry, you’ve been missing out on the promised land for quite a long time. For you, there’s been no better time to join the cult of Apple by getting the latest and greatest iPhone. If you can find one, that is.

serves up royal treatment BY CLAIRE HARLIN Staff Writer If you were royalty going out to eat in Japan, you’d probably dine in a private room sitting cross-legged. You’d be served by a waitress wearing a kimono, you’d drink fine sake and the chef would serve you a traditional 10-course “oma kase” meal — meaning “chef’s choice.” But even if you’re not royalty, there’s a restaurant in Solana Beach where you can go to get that same treatment. Samurai Restaurant, located at 979 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, offers reservationonly private dining with 10or eight-course meals, which manager Eric Song said is great for those looking to have an upscale business lunch or try new dishes in an extravagant way. “The chef picks dishes with the freshest fish,” said Song. “People don’t have to

worry about what to order and they feel like kings.” Song helps his father, Charlie Song, run the restaurant, which has been part of the Solana Beach community since 1979. The Songs, from Korea, were one of the first families to open a sushi restaurant in the San Diego area, and a number of chefs from Samurai have gone on to open their own successful restaurants, such as Nobu in Solana Beach, Bluefin Fusion Japanese Restaurant in La Jolla and Toshi Sushi in El Cajon. “Back then, it was only us. Now every block has a sushi restaurant,” said Charlie Song about being at the forefront of the sushi movement. “It was a big hit in the United States because it’s healthy, and people enjoy eating it because it’s unique.” Charlie also pointed out that many sushi restaurants


don’t serve “real sushi.” Sushi rolls, for example, are not traditional, as opposed to nigeri (just the raw fish). “Sometimes they are even baking sushi, which is not the real way,” said Charlie. “And in Japan, they don’t put mayo on their sushi.” The Songs were also one of the first to bring teppanyaki-style cuisine to San Diego. Charlie said when he started doing teppanyaki, in which guests sit around an iron griddle and watch the chef’s elaborate cooking methods right before their eyes, Benihana was the only other place doing it. To add another dining experience to Samurai’s offerings, guests can sit at what could be the longest sushi bar they’ve ever sat at, and the restaurant offers happy hour from 5 to 6:30 p.m. “Our bar sits over 50


people,” said Eric, who recently attended college in Boston and plays football, basketball and baseball. “It’s definitely the longest sushi bar in San Diego.” Eric said he’s lucky to continue the rich legacy that Samurai has implanted in the Solana Beach community. The restaurant, originally situated on Highway 101, was started by his grandfather, who passed away in 1992. He is still much a part of the restaurant, however, because his hand-painted Asian-inspired murals adorn two large walls. Eric said he loves working with his dad and “not a lot of people get that fatherson relationship.” “I look up to my dad and grandfather because they are successful businessmen,” said Eric, adding that the men came to the United States with almost nothing.


“That’s what I love about our family. We have a lot of determination.” For more information, visit or call (858) 481-0032.

JJ Stavola rushed for 105 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries, and Riley Sanchez and Luke Ramsey each gained 25 rushing yards on four carries.

David Bagby rushed for 75 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries, and Andrew Perkins gained 73 rushing yards on 12 carries. The Falcons scored first on Fargo’s run from the 4 midway through the first quarter. But they went into the intermission reeling after Rancho Bernardo took a 21-7 lead on three unanswered touchdowns. Bagby got the Falcons going with a scoring run from the 7 midway through the second quarter, and the Falcons tied the game on Fargo’s scoring run from the 3 late in the third quarter. Fargo’s scoring run from the 1 late in the game secured the win. The Falcons won for the third time in four games on the road, but are winless in four home games. The Falcons improved to 1-2 in league and 3-5 overall for the season. ***** Santa Fe Christian extended its winning streak to five games in decisive fashion as the Dons routed La Jolla Country Day 49-14 in a Coastal League game on Oct. 21.

Solana Beach Soccer Club’s Girls U16 team undefeated at season mid-point The Solana Beach Soccer Club’s Girls U16 team has reached mid-point of the season with an undefeated (5-0-1) record, and is in second place in the prestigious and difficult Presidio League. The team is led by forward/midfielders Georgie Lawson and Mariel Cathcart, and has the stingiest defense in the league—allowing only 6 goals all season. It is challenging to field a recreational soccer team after the players reach high school age. Players tend to focus on high school sports, or find other interests and drop recreational athletics altogether. But, 18 girls from six different high schools (Canyon Crest Academy, Cathedral Catholic, La Jolla Country Day, San Dieguito Academy, Santa Fe Christian and Torrey Pines) have chosen to lace on their booties and kick the ball around each weekend with their ‘mates. Some of the girls have played rec. soccer in SBSC for a decade, while others have played for competitive teams before returning to SBSC. Many of the girls have been teammates for years, and often have a better idea of where they want to play than their coaches. “I set the line-up very carefully,” says Head Coach and SBSC Board Member Jeff Lyle, “but, then I look up to see that two of the players have changed sides. ‘What’s going on girls?’ I’ll ask. And, they’ll tell me, ‘Chloe is better on the left side,’ or ‘Ary prefers right defender.’ Sometimes we have to be more directive, but, so far, it’s working.” Assistant coach Tim Pickwell says the girls are goofy, until challenged. “We had a poor pre-game warm-up, one game, and looked like we were asleep at the opening kick-off. The other team scored in less than a minute. But, then the girls got fired up and took it to them. They love the competition.”

CV Dons 5th grade team off to 4-1 start The Carmel Valley Dons Tackle Football 5th grade team has started its season with an impressive four-game winning streak. In a recent game against the Chula Vista Aztecs, the Dons players demonstrated a strong offensive show by putting up 40 points against the Aztecs. Outstanding line play by Grant Anderson (5), Justin Vilchis (34), Logan Berzins (11), Cole Shearson (22), Leo Silverman (55) and Raymond Sanchez (9) proved too powerful. Crew Fritsch (56) added, “these guys are beasts with an average weight of 110 lbs. per player, anyone can run behind our Offensive Line.” Not to be outdone, running backs William Alter (15), Edin Gonzalez (32), Owen Davies (83), and Ethan Kreutzmann all had long impressive runs. First-year wide receiver, Young Soo Kim (6) caught an impressive 40-yard pass for a touchdown from team captain Jack Foate (20) and Chaz Talman (1) scored his first touchdown on an impressive sweep of 15 yards. The Carmel Valley Dons Youth Football League was formed in 2010 to create a highly competitive Division 1 Youth Football Program to prepare top athletes for high school football. The League’s home stadium is Cathedral Catholic High School (CCHS) and players proudly wear the colors of CCHS. Informally nicknamed “Little Dons” by the Cathedral High football players, much of the team’s first year success can be attributed to the support of Cathedral’s Varsity Head Coach Sean Doyle and Athletic Director David Smola.

Artist creates altar of love and spirit

Painting by Todd Swenke

1. What brought you to this area? I was born and brought up in Northern England. After graduating university I came to San Diego hoping to do a Ph.D. in Russian Studies at UCSD, where my older brother taught. I ended up falling in love with North County, stayed and ended up getting a Ph.D. in psychology, with an expertise in personality. 2. What makes your work special to you? Growing up in England with my extended family in one house, I was struck by all the unnecessary conflict among the adults. What I like about my work now is that I get to work with different personalities, helping people understand themselves and one another better so they can get the best out of each other. It’s very rewarding to help people feel better using the science of personality and the techniques of psychotherapy. 3. What would you still like to achieve professionally? Psychologists often talk about solutions to

Artist Todd Swenke, who specializes in painting the colorfully-adorned skeletons that characterize Dia de los Muertos, has erected three large and elaborate altars at the entrance of the shop, which not only bring attention to the Latino holiday, but also pay homage to his own family members who have passed on. As tradition has it, Dia De Los Muertos is a time when the dead return home to visit loved ones, feast on their favorite foods and listen to their favorite music. Swenke has traditionally honored deceased family members in

UCSD history professor debunks myths about pirates

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY WILL BOWEN Contributor “The image of pirates presented by writers, such as Robert Lewis Stevenson and Daniel Defoe, is false,” claims Stanley Wahlens, UCSD Extension Division advisor and pirate aficionado. “Pirates like William Kidd were actually agents of the British government with a license to plunder Spanish ships.” Wahlens, along with about 50 other individuals, mostly UCSD staff and faculty, came to listen to a scholarly and intriguing lecture by UCSD history professor Mark G. Hanna titled, “A Nest of Pirates: Piracy and the Formalization of the First British Empire,” held on Oct. 20 in the Seuss Room at the Geisel Library on campus. The lecture was given in connection with the exhibit, “Unburying Treasure: Pyrates at Geisel,” which is located on the main floor of the library. Marlayna Christensen, Outreach Librarian at Geisel, who helped curate the ex-

pirates. It reveals everything you might want to know about pirate lifestyle and weaponry. It will be up through January 2012.” Hanna, who earned his Ph.D. from Harvard University, with a dissertation on the impact of pirates on Newport and Charlestown, Rhode Island from 16701730, said he was never particularly interested in pirates growing up and never planned to make the study of pirates his lifelong avocation. His original interest was fatherhood in America, he explained, but as he was giving a talk on an American father named William Harris, who had been captured by pirates, he noticed the audience was most fascinated and had the most questions about the part of his paper on pirates. These questions led him to go back and redo his search of the records on pirates. According to Hanna, fictional writers and Hollywood have given us a misleading picture of pirates as swashbuckling social out-

The Johnny Depp portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow would only be valid for the very short time period of 1713 to 1730.” Hanna found that many communities on the periphery of the English Em-

pire supported pirates because pirates brought in money (from the business of repairing and refitting their ships) and other resources (such as slaves, who they captured during their acts of piracy). Pirate James Brown married the daughter of a deputy governor and was selected for political office in New England, while pirate Thomas Cromwell was welcomed by John Winter the governor of Boston as a

“God’s Send.” Captain Henry Morgan, whose image is depicted on Morgan Rum bottles, was given permission to plunder the Spanish colonies and was eventually knighted. He later bought a plantation in Jamaica and ended up executing other pirates! Some communities, like the Quakers in eastern Delaware, tolerated and protected pirates from prosecution because the pirates only attacked ships owned by Muslims — a religion the Quakers thought was a product of the Antichrist. The pirates who walked freely in their midst were also a guarantee against further religious persecution by the British Crown. Hanna said historical documents reveal that when it comes to pirates, it’s difficult to sort fact from fiction, but generalizations about them are wrong; pirates have gotten a bad rap, and ended up as everyone’s scapegoat, be it for their anti-capitalist lifestyle or flamboyant clothing or aberrant sexual norms.

‘Fresh’ is the word of the day at The Fish Market BY KELLEY CARLSON atrons of The Fish Market restaurant in Solana Beach seem to be hooked on the fresh catch offered daily. Whether it’s in the retail market or in the dining area, there’s something for everyone — from species in season to locally caught varieties like swordfish. Customers can get a jumpstart on their day with a stop at the retail market, which opens at 10 a.m., an hour before the restaurant. Located just inside the front entrance, the seafood — much of it glistening in varying shades of pink — is on display under glass. A shopper may find Pacific opah (moonfish), Mexican yellowtail, Pacific mahi mahi, Alaskan halibut, black mussels or Sea of Cortez prawns, and much more. “It’s (the market) essentially the showpiece of what’s on the menu; it’s a purposeful place for people to buy fresh fish,” said Jim Wendler, president of The Fish Market. “People know us for having an extremely highquality product.” There’s also smoked fish, produced out of The Fish Market’s facility in South San


The nautically themed restaurant includes characters etched in glass throughout the restaurant.

One of the featured entrees is Ginger Glazed Fijian Ono with spicy shiitake mushrooms and bok choy.

On The

Menu Recipe

Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at Go to the ‘Food’ section to find this story, then click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. ■ This week: The Fish Market’s Garlic Prawns Francisco, and prepared foods, such as chowders, that are made from scratch on the premises. However, customers won’t find unsustainable species, such as Chilean sea bass or orange roughy, Wendler said. For guests who dine in the restaurant, there’s so many options they can try something new each time they come in and never repeat, according to Wendler. The menu changes a couple of times daily, and is driven by the types of fresh fish that are available. The fresh fish entrees are mesquite grilled, and any of them can be made Cajun or blackened. Among the house specialties offered is Our Famous Dungeness Crab Cioppino, consisting of prawns, finfish, scallops, calamari, clams,

mussels and cockles with house-made marinara sauce and garlic bread. A group of three or four people may want to try the Smoked Fish Sampler, with trout, salmon, nova lox and albacore. There’s Fish Tacos, served with ranchero-style black beans; panko-style fish and chips; and seafood sandwiches and pastas. Not a fan of underwater species? Try one of a handful of salads, or order the Boneless All-Natural Jidori Chicken Breast or Omaha Natural New York Steak. Children can stay occupied with an activity booklet while enjoying food from their own special menu with pizza, pasta, shrimp, fish and chicken. To add to a patron’s unique dining experience, the nautically themed restaurant has seven

seating areas, featuring seafaring characters etched in glass, and murals by Wyoming artist Jocelyn Slack, along with artwork of boats and other marine scenes. Kick back at the oyster bar — where oysters are served on the half shell with Asian-style Mignonette or cocktail sauce — and drink a glass of wine. Perch on a stool in the dimly lit full-service lounge/bar, or anchor yourself in the bar patio that is reminiscent of a greenhouse. There’s plenty of room to maneuver in the spacious main dining room, but when it’s busy, the back dining room with its removable partitions becomes another destination. The deck has a plank-type of wood on the floor, with small lamps on the tables and multiple-paned windows. For a little privacy, there’s Fred’s Room, named for Fish Market Restaurants Inc. founder Fred Duckett, which can accommodate parties of up to 17. “We’ve been in the business for 35 years,” Wendler said. “Seafood is a complicated product to deal with, but we have earned trust from our customers over the years, and we have the quality that they appreciate.”

Local resident continues husband’s work to help families affected by stage 4 cancer, fund research BY KELLEY CARLSON Michael Moore was only 50 years old when he was given the grim news that he had stage 4 bile duct cancer. But out of his lifethreatening illness, the idea for an organization to help others affected by cancer was born. Live Moore provides financial aid to families affected by stage 4 cancer, and also helps fund research for gastrointestinal forms of the disease. It was “Mike’s heart and soul — he loved to help people,” said his wife, Veronica Moore. Mike’s diagnosis came as a shock to his family and friends. The Detroit native lived in Southern California most of his life and was very active. According to Veronica, Mike worked out five days a week, enjoyed martial arts and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and was an annual competitor in the Camp Pendleton 10K Mud Run. He had a career in mortgage banking for more than 20 years, and eventually served as divisional president of Prospect Mortgage. “He had been perfectly healthy,” Veronica said. But in August 2010, Mike started complaining of stomach pains and took two

Mike and Veronica Moore days off of work, “which was unusual,” she added. After several tests, it was determined that Mike had an ulcer. But during another exam, he felt pain when the doctor pressed on his liver. Blood work revealed that Mike’s liver enzymes were elevated; just weeks before, another blood test had indicated that the enzymes were normal. Just after his cancer diagnosis — but before knowing the type and the severity — Mike proposed to Veronica, after three-and-a-half years of courtship. Veronica said that he had wanted to solidify their relationship. “When you love somebody, you’re in it through

A dinner was also held at Tommy V’s in Del Mar on Oct. 15. Veronica noted that random people have made do-

nations online, at It’s estimated that $60,000 has been raised so far, she said. The money is divided 50-50 between families affected by any type of stage 4 cancer with financial hardship, and physicians and researchers at UCSD who are developing early detection techniques and better treatments for patients with gastrointestinal cancers. “There’s no real funding for GI cancers,” Veronica said. “There aren’t that many cases in comparison to other (types, such as breast cancer, etc.).” Veronica said that Live Moore has aided three families so far, with a fourth “in the making.” A $10,000 donation was recently made to UCSD, she added. Meanwhile, Live Moore has set a fundraising goal of $60,000 to support a biostatistics database needed for developing the assessment of response markers, or biomarkers, which are substances in an organism whose presence indicate a disease or infection. Molecular profile screening of patients using biomarkers can optimize personalized treatment with the best specific chemotherapy for each patient. The organization is still in the grass-roots stage, Veronica acknowledged. “Everyone (who is part of it) works,” she said. “This is something done in their spare time.” However, Veronica said Live Moore hopes to plan one grand event each year, in October, and get the word out about its existence. Mike’s son Ryan, who just started medical school at UC Irvine, is active with the organization, primarily with the medical side, communicating with doctors at UCSD. Veronica’s focus is with the families in need of financial aid. Along with promoting Live Moore and raising funds, Veronica works at staying positive. She continues to live in Carmel Valley, and is a Realtor with Prudential, John Lefferdink & Associates in Rancho Santa Fe/Del Rayo. Her therapy is exercise, and she loves running on the beach. In fact, Veronica was featured in Shape magazine’s “You in Shape” feature in October after sharing her story about Mike and her efforts to stay fit as mental and physical therapy. She received the call about her selection from Shape on what would’ve been Mike’s 51st birthday. “I can’t help but think he was looking over me,” Veronica said. She noted that along with workouts, she did a lot of reading and journaling early on. The 37-year-old also found friends around her age who have also lost their husbands to cancer. “They’ve been a positive influence,” Veronica said. “I surround myself with family and friends, and don’t put things off,” she added.

Eco-wise artists ‘trash’ New Children’s Museum BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT Contributor What is trash? What impact does it have on our lives? How can we deal with it in more sensible ways? When and how does trash become art? These are some of the questions addressed by a new exhibition at the New Children’s Museum. Shazam! Twelve artists create imaginative installations from rubbish. Pretty patterns formed by magnetized metallic dust from old TV and computer parts. A crawl-through maze decorated with used clothes. A modern-day midden full of plastic throwaways. A lacy cloud of plastic bags. An illuminated Styrofoam rocket flying over jagged cardboard peaks and climbable walls. The exhibit, which opened with a community block party the weekend of Oct. 15, will run through Fall 2013. “We’re not like traditional museums, which keep changing exhibits. Our exhibits run two years. Our visitors LIKE coming back,” said Rachel Teagle, NCM’s

executive director and chief curator who has been part of the museum since 2007, a year before it opened. “We look for artists who understand what it means to take kids seriously,” she said. “We try to present real issues, and still keep things playful. We want kids to have fun thinking about

things. Then we have a really big opportunity to have the information stick.” With TRASH, she looked for artists who were already interested in the subject, an increasingly popular one in today’s art world, where eco-wise artists are finding other people’s junk and their own a good source of material.



“We have open calls for artists, inviting them to submit ideas,” Teagle said. “Mikey Eastman came to us through our open call, and we’re proud to say this is his first exhibition.” Eastman, who uses electromagnets made from copper wire in old computer fans and metallic

residue from grounddown electronic devices to create delicate dust sculptures, is a San Diegan, as is Jessica McCambley, whose lacy plastic-bag clouds invite contemplation. The majority of the TRASH artists are Californians, but Vik Muniz is from Brazil, home of the world’s largest landfill. His oversized photographs give grandeur to the garbage-pickers who roam through the dump, recycling whatever they can. One of the main-floor attractions is Kianga Ford’s playspace made of wire mesh and plastic bottles. The artist interviewed kids on both sides of the Mexican border, and found that, while most said recycling was important, they didn’t know why. “Because you get a really big fine if you don’t,” one said. “TRASH opens up complicated issues that even adults don’t consider,” said Teagle. “There are no easy answers, but we have to start asking the core questions: Where does our stuff come from? And where does it go? How many of us

North Coast Rep’s ‘Heroes’ finds strength in its cast BY DIANA SAENGER Let’s Review! “Heroes,” a heartwarming look back (and forward) on the lives of three World War 1 heroes living out their days in a veterans’ home, won the Laurence Olivier Best New Comedy Award in 2006.

Vaporizers – Not Just For Marijuana Anymore A La Jolla start up company has reinvented the vaporizer to provide relief from common ailments, such as pain, anxiety, insomnia, and asthma. Clovershield, Inc. has developed a state-of-the-art device while working with clinical herbalists to introduce organic, all-natural herbal blends as viable options to pharmaceuticals. Vaporization delivers the herbal medicine to the pulmonary system and into the bloodstream safely and instantly for immediate results, without harmful side effects. “Designing the Herbalizer device was easy,” quotes CEO and Founder Josh Young, a Bird Rock resident and former NASA engineer and as for funding the project he says “We have had a lot of interest from VC’s, but we are much more interested in finding Angel Investors.” Pilot testing and focus groups underway have proven results for asthma relief and sleeplessness, taking effect not in minutes or hours, but in seconds. The success makes vaportherapy a serious consumer option in the $15 billion annual alternative medicine market in the United States.

Eat, Drink and be Scary: Sassy Spirits and Ghoulish Grub The Kitchen Shrink

CATHARINE KAUFMAN Contributor I’m shellacking my nails black and stirring my caldron bubbling over with Beluga and blinis and pumpkin martinis for a grown-up Halloween hoopla. All Hallow’s Eve, an ancient Catholic custom honoring saints, has morphed into a $3 billion-a-year trick-ortreating candy orgy. But big kids can have fun, too. • Celebrity chef Brian Malarkey will be shakin’ things up at his downtown Searsucker with some bone chilling cocktails like the Femur Shot — an actual steer femur bone, cleaned, boiled and stuffed with a concoction

of coconut, lime and vodka. • For a sweet and seasonal refresher, The Grant Grill on Broadway will offer its famous Smashing Pumpkin that appeared on The Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” This glorious gourd cocktail blends pumpkin, star anise, rum, Grand Marnier, St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram, aromatic saffron syrup, cardamom bitters and a squirt of fresh Meyer lemon. • For howling werewolfs, Donovan’s Prime Seafood will be pouring The Full Moon, a lunar libation of Double Cross Vodka, Valrhona white chocolate, vanilla infused pisco, and Sal de Camargue. • And for pure insanity, chug down the Mental Ward 10 of high west “bourye” bourbon, pomegranate, molasses, lime and sugar at Hotel Palomar’s new Saltbox Dining and Drinking. • Visit the Rancho Bernardo Inn for a Ghoulish Grog of Bacardi light, gold and dark rums, Grand Marnier and grapefruit, orange and pineapple juices served in a Mason jar with a glow stick garnish.

Pumpkin Pecan Cherry Bread As the skeleton said to his dinner guests on Halloween – Bone appétit! Ingredients: 1 15 ounce can pumpkin puree 2/3 cup apple juice or water 1 cup canola or grapeseed oil 4 large eggs 3 1/3 cups unbleached flour 2 cups brown sugar 1/2 cup maple or agave syrup 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 cup toasted, chopped pecans 1/2 cup dried cherries or raisins Method: Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease two loaf pans (8 x 5 inch) with oil. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine pumpkin, oil, eggs, syrup and beat until smooth. In a large mixing bowl combine

ogist, may I make some eerie recommendations so you can shake, rattle and roll in your own home? This Black Cat is one you definitely want to cross paths with on Halloween – an icy Blavod Black Vodka blended with a raspberry-flavored Chambord garnished with fresh raspberries. Or a Bloody Brew, a twist on

the remaining ingredients. Gradually incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet, blending until thoroughly mixed. Pour into loaf pans and bake for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes clean. Serve with whipped cream or pumpkin gelato.

the classic Bloody Mary which adds a splash of beer to the mix to make it sizzle and foam at the mug. To shock the senses, (and your guests) try a Brain Hemorrhage that truly resembles gray matter in a glass. This cocktail layers Peach Schnapps and Irish Cream with a finishing drizzle of

Grenadine over the top, giving the libation its signature color. And for that sweet caffeine jolt, do a Cookie Monster Cocktail that makes a liquid cookie sandwiching Irish Cream between Kahlua and Peppermint Schnapps. Whip up some fun Halloween eats to accompany these drinks. Kick off the fes-

tivities with an Eyeball Antipasto making a platter of your favs including artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers and giant green olives stuffed with pimentos, cut in half and strategically placed with toothpicks on small, fresh mozzarella balls to resemble orbs. Decorate Pirate Pizzas with plenty of red sauce, orange peppers and black olives, serve sushi with splashes of orange roe and smoked salmon, and other finger foods such as crispy spring rolls, turkey meatballs, or chicken and veggie skewers with a sweet, sour and sassy dipping sauce that mocks clotted blood made of grape jelly, ketchup, French dressing and dash of Tabasco. Finally, a Graveyard Mud Pie with a chocolate mousse base, crumbled chocolate cookies for the cemetery soil and dollops of whipped cream for ghostly images. Stick Lady Fingers into the mix to simulate headstones. For other killer recipes, email or see

Stainless Steel Appliances. Added BONUS/MEDIA Room. Award winning schools! A must see! Colleen Roth â&#x20AC;˘ 858-357-6567 cell â&#x20AC;˘ 858-755-0075 office â&#x20AC;˘ DRE#01742466

Q&A continued from page B1 problems as if one size fits all. My understanding of personality has taught me that people understand the world differently based on their personality. I would like to leverage this understanding to work with larger groups of people, whether it is with politics or different religious groups, to promote better cooperation and understanding. 4. Who or what inspires you? I had two mentors who inspired me, one was a brilliant psychiatrist and very kind, and the other was a brilliant UCSD psychologist who understood people, was

kind and meticulously honest. They both, in different ways, inspired me to want to live a compassionate and disciplined life. 5. If you hosted a dinner party for 8, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? My wife and daughter Rachel (because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be so mad at not being included), Jesus Christ, Sigmund Freud, Steve Jobs, Abraham Lincoln, and Richard Branson. Ideas about human existence and individuals with a vision interest me most. 6. Tell us about what you are currently reading. I regularly read the Economist, the New Yorker and the Atlantic. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also reading â&#x20AC;&#x153;Predictably Irrational,â&#x20AC;? a great book on human

psychology. 7. What are your favorite films? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have favorite films. In a way I see my patientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; life stories like movies, and in that sense I see many movies a week, because they are all human stories. 8. What do you do for fun and what is your favorite vacation destination? I surf, play volleyball, walk, bike, ski and enjoy dinner parties. I love the tropics, especially Maui. 9. Please describe your greatest accomplishment. It sounds trite, but while Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of the books Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written and developing an expertise in personality, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of my marriage and our daughter

because I was afraid, given my childhood, that I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to do a good job! 10. What is your motto or philosophy of life? See things from othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; perspective, be kind and spread a little love and beauty. Things will work out.

ALTAR, continued from page B1



Artist Todd Swenke’s Dia de los Muertos altar installation at Leaping Lotus in Solana Beach’s Cedros Design District. PHOTO: CLAIRE HARLIN tled “Transision,” illustrates the transition from past life to post-mortem, and shows a woman (painted by Tiffany), who is half skeleton (painted by Swenke). “It gives you so much fulfillment as a parent to create something with your child,” Swenke said. The exhibition also features an altar created by Maya Ramirez, from Aguascaliente, Mexico, which shares relics from her family in Mexico. Three-dimensional art by Cesar Castaneda is also on display —including two tree stumps that have been transformed into ornate and organic feathered animal heads, one of which is suspended high above the ground. Also on view (and on sale from almost $900) is a boxed spring bed that was used as the palette for a large, detailed Dia de los Muertos-themed painting. Leaping Lotus is located at 240 S. Cedros Ave. For more information call (858) 7208283.
