damaged—the events and scenes of the October 2007 Witch Creek fire are still fresh in residents’ minds, and many want to know if anything has changed so the past does not repeat itself. Steps are being taken to possibly ease evacuations, assure the town has water, and educate the public on being prepared.

Supervisors approve emergency evacuation route; tour on Nov.1 Five years after the Witch wildfire led to a nightmarishly slow evacuation of Ramona, San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted to pursue a new emergency evacuation route that it will open to the public for viewing at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1. The county will conduct the evacuation route open house with the Ramona Community Planning Group. The planning group will hold its monthly meeting that evening at 7 and will welcome questions and comments about the route. The meeting will be in the Ramona Library Community Room, 1275 Main St. North of Ramona Airport, the route would lead evacuees west on a dirt road through a portion of the county grasslands and across Ramona Municipal Water District (RMWD) property to Rangeland

Road and eventually to State Route 67 or Highland Valley Road. Visitors to the open house are asked to assemble near the gated access point off Montecito Way, just north of El Paso Street, where the route begins. Parking will be along Montecito Way. The route is a 12-foot wide dirt strip. The tour will consist of a caravan that will return to Montecito Way upon completion. According to Ramona planning group Chair Jim Piva, the tour will not include the proposed route’s portion that would travel over water district property, as the county is still working on an agreement with the district. Piva noted that there have been a lot of questions and concerns about the proposed emergency evacuation route. See SUPERVISORS page 2

idents on fire rebuilds, said one of the biggest items that has resulted from the Witch fire is more education. Community workshops have covered such topics as evacaution, defensible space, and hardening a home­—making it more fire resistant. Being ready and having a plan is key, said Villagomez. He called Cal Fire’s “Ready, Set, Go” a good plan to have in place before, during and after a

Rebuilding homes, rebuilding lives By KAREN BRAINARD Five years have passed since the Witch fire roared into Ramona on Oct. 21, 2007, during a spell of hot, dry Santa Ana winds, and many Ramonans are still rebuilding their lives from the devastation. Information on how many homes were

lost in Ramona and how many have been rebuilt was not available from the county. Instead, the county has broken down that data by fires and reports that the Witch fire destroyed 609 primary structures, and See REBUILDING, page 16

“It’s not the only evacuation route,” Piva said, adding that it would just be a way to alleviate traffic heading out of town on Route 67 and help to avoid the bottleneck that occurred during the 2007 Witch fire. People in north Ramona could avoid funneling into town and instead connect with Highland Valley Road, Archie Moore Road, and eventually State Route 67 farther south, said Piva. They could also continue west on Highland Valley Road toward Interstate 15, he said. The route would not be allowed if it hadn’t been approved by the sheriff’s department and the Ramona Fire Department/Cal Fire as a safe alternative, he noted. “Let the people see what

it’s all about,” Piva said. “Hopefully it clears up some of the concerns.” The vote by the supervisors, which was unanimous as part of their Oct. 9 consent calendar, directs county staff to negotiate with the water district to receive consent to use a portion of district land during emergency evacuations. “This community faced a major headache during the evacuation process during the Witch Creek fire of 2007,” said Supervisor Dianne Jacob, who represents Ramona. “In short, the entire town was ordered to leave all at once, creating a massive gridlock on Highway 67 and a potentially tragic incident in and of itself.” “This action will save lives

and provides the people of Ramona another option in the event there is a need for people to evacuate, in the event of another emergency,” she said. Ramona water district, the county, San Diego Gas & Electric, CalFire, and the Ramona planning group have been working on the new evacuation route. Because the water district did not receive the route’s draft legal agreement from the county in time for its Oct. 9 board meeting, Piva requested it be added to the water board’s Oct. 23 agenda. “I do believe today’s vote, which was unanimous, was a very positive event and the community will definitely benefit from it,” he said at the water board’s

Oct. 9 afternoon meeting. At that meeting, water district Director Joe Zenovic suggested the board schedule a special meeting at the evacuation route site and invite Jacob, the press, and planning group members. Board President Bryan Wadlington agreed, saying it would provide a valuable visual aid. RMWD General Manager David Barnum said the water board will determine how to proceed with the county’s agreement at its Oct. 23 meeting, but the board needs time to discuss it and hear from the public. “Our goal is to be accurate,” Barnum said.

Winding State Route 78 goes west to Escondido but has only one lane in each direction. In the other direction, SR-78 goes to Santa Ysabel and Julian. In 2007, SR-78 was not available as an evacuation route because of the fire. The only other way out is Wildcat Canyon Road, which runs south. Most of those killed in the firestorm of 2003 — the Cedar Fire — perished in the canyon area south of the Barona Indian Reservation.

The water board had concerns about SDG&E utility poles with guy wires along the RMWD portion of the route. SDG&E said it can move the guy wires and add shielded amber low-pressure sodium lights to three poles for better visibility in the event of a nighttime evacuation. The water board also questioned environmental repercussions it could face due traffic on that property. The county agreement exempts the water district from the California Environmental Quality Act and includes an indemnification that protects the district from liability if the portion of its property is used for the route.

Supervisors give initial approval to lower TIF rates By Joe Naiman The County of San Diego’s Transportation Impact Fee rates are a second reading and adoption away from being revised to significantly lower rates. San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to approve the introduction and first reading of the revised TIF rates on Oct. 10. The second reading and adoption is scheduled for Oct. 31. “After seven years this is what the board and the stakeholders are looking for,” said Rich Crompton, director of the county’s Department of Public Works (DPW). The revisions reduce TIF rates by an average of 46 percent for residential development, 75 percent for industrial buildings, and 80 percent for commercial structures. TIF rates are applied in each community by three areas: village core, or town center; village; and non-village. In Ramona, the non-village areas are in the outskirts of town. To see a map of Ramona’s three areas, visit the county website: sdcounty.ca.gov/dpw/land/landpdf/ Docs/VillageMaps.pdf.

The new TIF program provides for a 10 percent discount for projects built within a community’s village area and a 20 percent discount for projects in a village core area. The discount reflects reduced traffic in such areas due to proximity to destinations and alternative transportation. The TIF ordinance complies with San Diego Association of Governments’ TransNet ordinance, which requires jurisdictions to collect a minimum fee for funding Regional Arterial System projects to receive TransNet funding for local streets and roads. The travel demand unit methodology was based on trips generated per unit or 1,000 square feet, pass-by trip rates, average trip length, and floor-to-area ratio for non-residential buildings. The calculations attribute 14.4 million travel demand units to future development, including nearly 3.9 million in the east region. Because Ramona and Julian are accessed more from East County than from North County, Ramona’s 839,980 future travel demand units and Julian’s 112,762 future units are part of the east region. The estimated $30.3 million

cost of future east region facilities was derived from estimates of $19.9 million for state routes and $10.3 million for Ramona facilities. The total TIF assessments, including the SANDAG fee, for Ramona are as follows: Village Core Area Single-family home: 3,306 Multi-family dwelling: $2,925 per unit Temporary lodging: $476 per unit Congregate care facilities: $237 per unit Village Core, per 1,000 sq. feet General commercial: $1,988 Furniture store: $272, General industrial: $876, Office: $1,572, Warehouse and storage facilities: $383 Government or institutional structures: $938 Village area Single-family homes: $3,449 Multi-family residential: $3,031 per unit Temporary facilities: $535 per unit Congregate care facilities: $268 per unit. Village area, per 1,000 sq. feet General commercial: $2,237 Furniture store: $306 General industrial: $985

Office: $1,770 Warehousing and storage: $431 Government/institutional building: $1,055 Non-village area Single-family home: $3,592 (reduced from $11,082) Multi-family residential: $3,116 per unit Temporary lodging such as hotels, motels, timeshares, and agricultural labor housing: $595 per unit Congregate care residential: $297 per unit Non-village, per 1,000 sq. feet General commercial: $2,485 (decreased from $17,010) Furniture store: $340 General industrial: $1,094 (reduced from $6,294) Office: $1,966 Warehouses and storage facilities, including horse stables, wineries, and wine tasting rooms: $479 Government or institutional buildings for which the county has land use jurisdiction (public schools, military bases, and Indian reservations are exempt from all TIF charges): $1,172 Private schools will be subject to the institutional TIF charge, although churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples are classi-

fied as general industrial. Select Industrial Category The select industrial category covers uses which generate trips but do not have sufficient structure square footage to cover the traffic impacts. These include quarries and other mining operations, landfills, asphalt batch plants, power generation plants, RV parks and campgrounds, recycling centers, wireless communication facilities, and fuel pumps added to an existing facility. The TIF is based on average daily trips with heavy equipment vehicle trips being converted to passenger vehicle equivalent trips. The select industrial rate in Ramona’s non-village area will be $139 per trip; in the village area, $126 per trip; and in the village core, $111 per trip. Supervisor Dianne Jacob, whose district includes Ramona, noted the magnitude of the industrial and commercial reductions. “That is a big deal,” she said. “This definitely is going to help people who want to put in industrial, commercial development.” In April 2005 the county supervisors adopted a TIF ordiSee TIF RATE, page 5

NCAA denies MVA eligibility for top sports scholarships By BILL TAMBURRINO Parents and student/athletes at Mountain Valley Academy (MVA) have learned that the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is not recognizing MVA graduates as eligible to receive sports scholarships. On Thursday, Oct. 11, MVA, the high school program at Ramona Community School, held a meeting. Attending were 14 parents, teachers, school administrators, and a student. The main agenda item was to explain the NCAA decision that stated that student/athletes are not eligible to receive grants-inaide (scholarships) and are not eligible to participate in NCAA Division I and Division II athletic programs after graduating from MVA. MVA counselor Chuck Lopez got the decision on March 12, when the NCAA Eligibility Center Nontraditional Academic Review Questionnaire regarding nontraditional coursework (defined as online, correspondence, independent study, softwarebased credit, etc.) reviewed the curriculum at MVA and notified Lopez that MVA was not in accordance with NCAA standards.

In order for nontraditional coursework to be eligible for NCAA eligibility purposes, it must pass the following criteria: •The instructor and the student have ongoing access to one another for the purpose of teaching, evaluating, and providing assistance to the student throughout the duration of the course. •The instructor and the student have regular interaction with one another for the same criteria listed above. •The student’s work is available for evaluation and validation. •Evaluation of the student’s work is conducted by appropriate academic authorities. •The courses include a defined time period for completion. •The course is acceptable for any student and is placed on the high school transcript. The above can be simplified into the title of seat time. Here is the kicker. All of the NCAA core courses taken by the student athletes at MVA are in compliance with the above criteria. However, since all of the students at MVA don’t have to follow those criteria, the NCAA is punishing the student/athletes.

• • • • • • • • •

The NCAA gave guidelines for the appeals process and Lopez, Ramona Unified School District (RUSD) Superintendent Dr. Robert W. Graeff, and Ramona Community School Principal Carol Tennebaum appealed immediately. It took the NCAA until August to reply to the appeal and deliver a decision. The RUSD was not aware that MVA courses were not in compliance with NCAA standards until two MVA student/athletes were denied initial eligibility. To establish initial eligibility, the NCAA requires 16 specific core courses: 4 years of English; 3 years of math, Algebra I and higher; 2 years of natural/physical science with one year of a lab; 1 year of any of the above as an elective; 2 years of social science; 4 years of additional courses from any of the above; and a foreign language or comparative religion/philosophy. Non-core courses do not impact eligibility. Graeff re-appealed in September. He said MVA would build a new core course list for submission to the NCAA so that MVA students would be qualified for initial eligibility. Graeff assured parents that the curriculum

would adhere to the standards of the NCAA criteria and went into detail as how the courses would be instructed, evaluated and supervised. In October, the NCAA denied Graeff’s appeal and said his proposal to make the core courses admissible for NCAA initial eligibility would be evaluated after one academic year. The NCAA also said no MVA students could be “grandfathered” in if the NCAA passes the changes. Graeff responded again and re-explained that MVA’s student/athletes have always been in compliance with the NCAA criteria even if all of the MVA students were not required to attend 90 percent of the classes of the time to earn course credit. “Everything else in our recent letter describing our response to NCAA requirements has been in place for many years—well before any of our current high school students even entered the MVA program as high school freshmen,” said Graeff. Graeff went on to explain: •Teachers have always been appropriately credentialed. •Instructional materials have always met the standards of the State of California.

•Students attending class have always had regular interaction with their teachers. •Every student assignment has always been available to NCAA evaluation and validation. •All core classes have always been taught by district classroom teachers. •All core courses have always started and ended in a time period consistent with traditional 18-week high school semester. •Every core course has always been available to every student, so long as it meets the course requirement. Still, the NCAA failed to accept the academic work of MVA student/athletes for initial eligibility. “The fact that even if the NCAA does grant our next appeal that they will not grandfather our students so that they can have the educational experience of competing in Division I and II sports is criminal,” said Lopez. After the decision was explained to those in attendance, Tennebaum explained that even if the student/athletes who are currently juniors at MVA transferred to Ramona High School it would be too late for them to See NCAA, page 5

nance in order to comply with state law and provide funding for the construction of transportation facilities needed to support the increased traffic generated by new development. In 2008, the TIF was modified to reflect more accurate regional needs. The economic downturn had not yet started, and concerns had surfaced that businesses were locating in incorporated cities with lower impact fees. “This was something that we had to get changed,” said Supervisor Ron Roberts. “For four years this hurt us.” In September 2010, the county began working with a consultant on a comprehensive update. Rather than changing the methodology in 2011, the supervisors and DPW waited until the county’s updated general plan was adopted. Developers are not required to mitigate for existing roadway deficiencies, but the TIF is intended to pay for road impacts of future development and the update of the general plan’s Circulation Element altered future road improvement costs and thus, a development’s share of the costs. The general plan update was adopted in August 2011, and the elimination of certain widening plans reduced the costs for the future transportation road network from approximately $912 million to $353 million.

Barona Museum educator strives to preserve Native American culture By KAREN BRAINARD In an informative and entertaining presentation, O’Jay T. Vanegas, museum educator of the Barona Cultural Center and Museum, told members of the San Vicente Valley Club how the history, culture, and traditions of the Barona people are being preserved. The museum, located on the Barona Indian reservation, contains about 22,000 pieces that focus on the indigenous lives and perspectives of the Barona Band of Mission Indians and Southern California Native American community members. At the Valley Club’s most recent meeting, Vanegas said the Kumeyaay/Diegueño language—‘Iipay Aa—is difficult to learn. “Our language is very, very important to the Barona people,” he said. “We do everything we can to preserve the language. It has all these different sounds.” He counted in the

language to give examples. The museum offers language programs, as well as classes on pottery and basket weaving. Classes also focus on teaching Barona youth about their heritage, and that includes games and music. The museum educator said many people think that the Barona Pow Wows demonstrate the instruments and singing of all

Native American groups. “That’s not true,” he said. “Every group has a different type of instrument and different types of songs that are associated to their people.” Barona is in an area where the “birdsongs” are important and are sung with a rattle—a gourd filled with seeds that is attached to a handle. For children, birdsongs are important be-

cause they provide a link to their true identity, he said. “So the kids really like it,” said Vanegas, adding that they think it’s cool to be a bird singer. The songs, he said, are based on the history and migration stories of the people. “A song could be like a word to a sentence. And so when you start adding the songs in a particular order, you’re building that sentence,” explained Vanegas. Noting that he sings birdsongs of Palm Springs, Vanegas performed the “Hummingbird Song,” accompanied by the rattle. Vanegas also exhibited many artifacts and historical items used by the Barona tribe, including a variety of baskets, pottery, and tools. He explained how much work and patience went into the baskets, from collecting the fibers to weaving them together. One basket could take days to make, he said. When members of the Valley Club asked if the

baskets were only made by women, Vanegas said some men probably made baskets. “I think the more skills you possessed, the more valuable you were to your family, because ultimately it’s about the survivability of your family,” he said. Yucca fiber was important to the culture, he said, displaying a pair of yucca sandals. All kinds of nets were also produced from yucca fibers. “There’s so many different applications for that fiber,” he said. Barona Cultural Center

Education: How It Doesn’t Work Chain of Command of the American System Of Education

President of the United States—Congress—U.S. Department of Education—State Governor—State Legislature—State Department of Education— County Department of Education—Local School Board—Superintendent—Principal—Teacher— Student—Parent By Kenneth Woodward In our national system of elementary and high school education the student, who is the prime product of the system, resides at the very bottom of a national chain of administration. There are 10 distinct levels of national, state, and local administrative departments, each driven by its own set of laws, rules, and/or procedures that must be navigated 365 days of the year before we arrive at the classroom level of the educational process for one single student. To make matters more complex and confusing, the system has become highly politicized with the President of the United States, members of Congress, and the state legislatures, governors, and county and local school board members all vying for political office: each running on his or her own agenda for fixing the system. Superimposed over the system, nationwide, are many millions of staff members who have little or no professional training and/or classroom experience, other than their own previous experiences as students. And to financially support this gigantic bureaucratic process that everyone seems to complain about, the federal, state, and local governing bodies needlessly expend tens of billions of dollars each year. “We don’t trust you, so we are going to change the way you do business,” appears to be the frequent message directed at the local schools, principals, and teachers from the highest levels of a nationwide bureaucratic order. Interestingly, a local school system has never been the perfect model of a business organization. Its assembly line, the classroom, is a heterogeneous blend of a variety of young people from different backgrounds. They come from poor, middle, and upper class families and different ethnic groups. They have different learning skills and respond to their world environment according to personal perceptions and what they believe to be true. Students on this line, at the end of 12 years, do not always emerge as a perfect product of the system. The system is not broken. It just needs a few major adjustments at several levels that are not within the scope of authority of the local school districts; and several others that can be accomplished by the districts if the major adjustments are addressed. First: The responsibility for the education of our children needs to be returned to the custody of the local county departments of education and local school districts. The U.S. Department of Education needs to be completely eliminated and See EDUCATION COMMENTARY, page 9

Prop. R is not sound fiscal management By PAUL KETCHUM I have been reading the articles in the Sentinel about Proposition R and decided to research it. I have read the ballot, the school board’s resolution, and downloaded and read (several times) the San Diego County Taxpayers Association position paper on Prop. R. I would urge all my fellow citizens to read the SDCTA position paper. The $66 million bond will cost the taxpayers $121 million to $126 million over its 25-year span. While much is promot-

ed about the SDCTA supporting Prop. R, I can find nothing within the SDCTA document to suggest that they think the proposed spending is either prudent or needed. Rather it seems to be an analysis of the information the district provided SDCTA to assess whether it met their criteria for transparency in bond initiatives for taxpayers’ consideration, what SDCTA refers to as School Bond Support Criteria. The information met 9 of 12 of SDCTA criteria. The three criteria that See NO ON PROP. R, page 9

Ramona schools ‘in world of hurt’ By DEBI KLINGNER I am typically an absolute “NO!” vote on anything that raises taxes for any of us; however, this election I have been persuaded to vote YES on Prop. R. Our schools are in a world of hurt thanks to the bureaucracy and layers of governmental intervention. We have so many programs that are duplicative, way too many school districts (over 40 in San Diego County!); most teachers are underpaid for their value—in other words, bureaucracy that no one in Sacramento has the desire to unwind. I received a letter from Ramona High School informing me that the afterschool programs were in jeopardy of not continuing because there weren’t

enough kids getting free lunches. Yes, the afterschool programs are funded based upon the number of low-income families enrolled in the school!! Huh?? OK, so our STATE has completely screwed up the system, but it is nevertheless a mess, and the Ramona district, as all the San Diego districts, are at the bottom of the food chain. Whatever you may think about the school board, they don’t have $60 million in excess money to allocate otherwise. The only way to fix it locally is for Ramona residents to care enough about our children, Ramona’s future as a community, and property owners’ land values. I’ve been in the master See YES ON PROP.

Sentinel Reader Opinion Obama’s clock will be cleaned

Not only will Obama lose the election, but he will get his clock cleaned. Because his political party has displayed such a void of intelligence that is equivalent to “drinking the Kool-Aid,” I believe the public will boot them out of the presidential office for at least the next 4 terms. Had they had the ability to call lazy, incompetent, and tyranny by name, the public would be more forgiving. But they won’t. It’s hard to lose a job, have a home foreclosed on, see retirement distributions severely diminished, earn next to nothing on a savings account, or have to face the fact that they can’t afford the college education that they had always envisioned for their child. That child will have bitter memories of that for the rest of their life. Carolyn Dorroh Ramona

Keep Ramona viable; Yes on Proposition R

Our schools in Ramona are in trouble. We have failing facilities, a bleak financial outlook and declining enrollment. For those of you that would

like to save the $15-25 per month in taxes for the long overdue bond measure, you will probably be able to save even more than that if it fails. How, you may ask? With high gas prices, a school system run by the state, and deteriorating campuses, fewer people with children will want to live here. You can count on your property value dropping another 20%. Then you could have your property reassessed and pay lower taxes. Someone willing to save $300 per year in taxes (more like $200-225 as it is tax-deductible) to ensure losing $100,000 in home equity deserves that fate in my opinion. It is my observation and belief that 20-25% of people will vote against anything that costs them money in taxes. That means that a bond requiring a 55% vote to pass must get 55 out of every 75 people of the remaining electorate to vote for it. I encourage you to challenge your friends and neighbors to invest in this community and keep Ramona a viable community by voting “Yes” on Proposition R. Scott Roulier Ramona

Education Commentary

g

75 percent of the State of California’s Department of Education phased out. Two: Money saved to be returned to each school district. Three: Change the training and certification methods for teachers. State universities must have responsibility to certify each new teacher based on a stringent written examination and a personal interview by a board of examiners made up of a retired or current professor, principal, superintendent, teacher, and parent. Four: Every two years the school plant and the instructional technologies need to be evaluated by the administrators, teachers, and staff and updated as necessary. Five: A method for

the evaluation of student achievement needs to be developed collectively by the teachers and the principals and reviewed by the superintendent and board of education. The results need to be publicly announced each year and discussed with members of the local community. Six: Teachers must be recognized and utilized as a major component to this process and included in any proposed change. Seven: The chain of command in a school district has always been a convoluted process and that is why we have teacher unions. Most school districts have highly capable principals who work well with their teaching staff, but when it comes time

Students get the best from Ramona teachers

In a conversation with San Diego County Teacher of the Year Jennifer McSparren days before the deserved honor was awarded, I told her that, whether she received the award or not, it didn’t change the quality teacher she is. I could say that to all teachers at Mt. Woodson Elementary and the Ramona Unified School District. It is an honor to observe the true teaching that goes on in a positive and enthusiastic environment that facilitates exceptional learning. I get to be the “fly on the wall” as a special education aide and, with our mainstream inclusion program, observe marvelous, creative, and effective teaching. In spite of cuts, overcrowding, and sometimes unreasonable expectations, our RUSD students get the best from the overwhelming majority of teachers. Thank you for what you do — every day — for the students in your care. Susan Carr Ramona

Congratulations to local athlete From page 8

to resolve major issues or meet the instructional needs of the teachers, the principals are often bypassed. Consequently, the teachers end up airing their grievances or needs to the superintendent or school board. This takes the principal out of the loop and diminishes his image as a problem solver and mentor to his staff. To conclude, I have an interesting question. If the entire bureaucracy above that of the County Board of Education disappeared tonight, would teachers and students be able to function in the classroom tomorrow? Kenneth Woodward, a retired educator, is director of the Guy B. Woodward Museum in Ramona.

Kudos to Nick Vincent on making it to the “bigs” with the San Diego Padres this season. It was fun to watch a local athlete not only make it but perform so well. Congratulations, Nick, and we will see you next year! Jacquie A. Green Ramona

MDA thanks firefighters, Ramona community

The following letter was sent from the Muscular Dystrophy Association thanking Ramona Fire Department/Cal Fire and the community of Ramona for their support. As you are aware, we performed this function in the morning hours, before our work day began. This is a shining example of the generosity of our community of Ramona during these tough economic times. Burke Kremensky Battalion Chief Cal Fire San Diego Unit Ramona Fire Department Cal Fire held their annual county wide Fill the Boot drive to benefit the MDA. Cal Fire Ramona firefighters dedicate their time to support local children and adults who are affected by muscular dystrophy locally. We had over 20 firefighters at different intersections in Ramona to hit the streets to help families afflicted with neuromuscular diseases. Firefighters have stood by MDA for over 58 years through the Fill the Boot fundraiser. Through the diligent efforts of these firefighters and the kindness of the community of Ramona, $2,164 was raised to fight muscular dystrophy. All proceeds from this boot drive will aid MDA in providing assistance to over 1,200 local families affected by neuromuscular diseases.  The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting over 40 neuromuscular diseases by providing patient, support group, mobility equipment, MDA summer camp for ages 6-21, and research funding.

were not met are: •Program Execution Plan, •Deferred Maintenance and Major Repair and Replacement Plan, and •Complete Ballot and Resolution Language. A good deal of this money is being used to repair facilities ($2.9 million) and buy technology upgrades ($7.484 million). Both of these items are short-term problems which the district would have us pay for 25 years. The issue of facilities in need of repair rests squarely on the shoulders of district management. Part of management is to properly use its resources to include adequate facility maintenance. A good portion of the nearly $7.5M in technology they want us to pay for will undoubtedly be obsolete in a matter of just several years. Both these items should be part of any organization’s annual operating and IT capital expenditure plans. I wonder how many of my fellow citizens would take out a 25-year loan to buy a computer or re-roof their home? With regard to the facility repairs I will quote from the SDCTA document: “…it is unclear if the District will be able to maintain facilities following completion of the bond program,…” “…the District eliminated funding for deferred maintenance in FY2009 and plans to do the same through FY2014.” “Of the $5.9 million in their deferred maintenance backlog, the District estimates that $2.9 million in projects will be addressed by the proposed bond. The remaining $3 million will need to be addressed in the future. The balance of the backlog is anticipated to be completed at a later date with either a later bond issuance or the reinstatement

planned community development business for over 20 years. The reason folks move into new communities is not really the pretty house, it is the quality of schools. It’s ugly, it’s out of control, but Ramona, we have ONE option, that’s it, period, one chance to get our classrooms for the next generation safe and up to date. It’s expensive, it stinks that it is

of the State’s deferred maintenance program.” Another large component of Prop. R is to refinance debt incurred to build schools. “There is approximately $22.7 million in outstanding COP debt.” Refinancing this debt eliminates approximately $1.4 million per year in payments. The District has said none of the bond money would go to salaries. Where is this $1.4 million per year the District will not be paying for COP debt going to go? My guess is a good portion would go toward salaries. As a taxpayer being asked to pay hundreds of dollars a year for the next 25 years, I have a few things I would like to ask the Superintendent and President of the School Board. I have been reading for some time that the District is nearly broke, and at risk of being put into receivership by the state if the financial situation does not improve. I also read the District brought on board a consulting firm to advise and help prepare Prop. R. How did you pay these consultants and how much? Did you cut a contingency deal with them where they get paid if Prop. R passes and if so, how much? I urge my fellow citizens to carefully read the SDCTA’s Prop. R position paper, as well as the ballot wording before you vote. As for me, I vote no to more taxes. I don’t believe this is about 21st Century Education, rather it seems to be about a lack of 21st Century Management. It’s time to hold the school board and district management accountable for sound fiscal and resource management practices. In my opinion, Prop. R is not sound fiscal management. Paul Ketchem is a Ramona resident.

our only option, but a NO vote means more degrading of the schools, degeneration of land values, and more families with children either not moving to Ramona or leaving Ramona, or going down the hill to other schools.

Voters to decide on 10 state propositions in Nov. 6 election The Nov. 6 election ballots will ask voters to decide on 10 state propositions on a wide range of topics, including the death penalty, human trafficking, auto insurance, and food labeling. Two propositions—30 and 38­—address increased taxes for education and other government-related services. If both propositions pass, they would conflict, so the one with the most “yes” votes would prevail.

be guaranteed for public safety programs transferred from state to local government. According to the Legislative analyst, it is estimated to raise $6 billion annually from 2012-13 through 2016-17, and additional revenues would be available to fund programs in the state budget. The state’s 2012-13 budget plan assumed passage of this measure, and calls for spending cuts if rejected.

Temporary Taxes to Fund Education. Guaranteed Local Public Safety Funding. Proposition 30 states that it would temporarily increase the state sales tax by 1/4 cent for four years, beginning Jan. 1, 2013, and would increase personal income tax on annual earnings over $250,000 for seven years. If passed, the measure says temporary revenues would be allocated to K-12 schools (89 percent) and community colleges (11 percent), and funding would

State Budget. State and Local Government. This measure changes certain responsibilities of local governments, the Legislature and the governor, according to an analysis. Proposition 31 states it will establish a two-year state budget cycle, and prohibit the Legislature from creating expenditures of more than $25 million unless there are spending cuts or offsetting revenues. It would also permit the governor to cut the budget unilaterally

Proposition 30

Proposition 31

during declared fiscal emergencies, and allow local governments to alter how laws governing state-funded programs apply to them unless the Legislature or state agency vetoes the change within 60 days. The fiscal impact could be decreased sales tax revenues of about $200 million annually, increased funding to certain local governments, and potential changes in state and local budgets.

Proposition 32

Political Contributions by Payroll Deduction. Contributions to Candidates. The intention of Proposition 32 is to prohibit unions from using payroll-deducted funds for political purposes, but permits voluntary employee contributions to an employer-sponsored committee or union. It would also prohibit unions and corporations from contributing directly or indirectly to candidate and candidate-controlled com-

mittees. According to the Legislative Analyst, to implement and enforce this measure could cost state and local governments more than $1 million annually.

Proposition 33

Auto Insurance Companies. Prices Based on Driver’s History of Insurance Coverage. This would change current law to allow insurance companies to set prices based on whether the driver previously carried auto insurance with any insurance company, and give proportional discounts to drivers with some history of prior coverage. It would also allow the companies to increase cost of insurance to drivers who have not maintained continuous coverage, exempting drivers with a lapse due to military service, loss of employment, or with a lapse of less than 90 days.

Proposition 34

Death Penalty. Proposition 34 would repeal the death penalty as maximum

punishment for persons found guilty of murder and replace it with life imprisonment without possibility of parole. Persons found guilty of murder must work while in prison with their wages subject to deductions that would be applied to any victim restitution fines or orders against them. The repeal would apply retroactively to persons already sentenced to death and directs $100 million to law enforcement agencies for investigations of homicide and rape cases.

Proposition 35

Human Trafficking. Penalties. Proposition 35 increases criminal penalties for human trafficking, including 15-years-to-life prison sentences and fines up to $1.5 million. Fines collected would be used for victim services and law enforcement. A person who is convicted would be required to register as a sex offender. Sex offenders would be required to provide See PROPOSITIONS, page 12

OBITUARIES

Frances “Dedda” Quirbach 1930 – 2012

Frances Quirbach, a longtime resident of San Diego Country Estates and an avid fan of art, literature and film, died Saturday, October 13, 2012, of complications related to pancreatic health issues. She was 82. Ms. Quirbach was born February 13, 1930, in Baltimore, Maryland, and embarked west to Los Angeles in 1953 to pursue her dream of California living, which to her meant year-round mild weather and being a little closer to movie making and movie stars. Her parents and younger sisters eventually followed her to California, where the majority of her family still lives. She is survived by her sister, Mignon (Helmut) Leins, who lived with Ms.

Quirbach in San Diego Country Estates since 1996. Ms. Quirbach also leaves behind another sister, Fernanda Dombay; three nephews, Joe Dombay, Kirk Leins and Eric Leins; and two nieces, Tori White and Danielle Kavounas, as well as their spouses and children. Ms. Quirbach, who lived her early childhood years in Koblenz, Germany, also is survived by cousins and extended family still residing in that country. Her loving short-hair dachshund, Beau, also misses her greatly. Ms. Quirbach graduated from Ridley Township High School in Ridley, Pennsylvania, in 1948. After graduating, she worked for the Philadelphia Electric Company before moving to Westwood, California, and taking an entry-level office position with the Hilton Hotels corporation. Ms. Quirbach remained her entire career at Hilton, working in the corporate offices in Beverly Hills and later Century City under the guidance of Hilton family executives. She retired in 1994 as the head of accounts payable for the entire Hilton Hotels corporation, having served the company for 40 total years. A few years later, Ms. Quirbach moved to San Diego Country Estates from her longtime home in San

Pedro, California. Loyalty defined Ms. Quirbach. Although she never married or had any children of her own, she treated her nieces and nephews as though they were her own, and they always called her “Dedda.” She was a role model for being supportive and optimistic in what is sometimes a far too selfabsorbed and cynical world. Ms. Quirbach’s impact on others extends beyond her family. She was a member of the San Vicente Valley Club and a longtime owner of multiple Ramona properties. Ms. Quirbach’s most highprofile real estate was at the Highway 78 entrance into The Valley of the Sun. She was part owner of the larger 20-acre property that now houses Pine Tree Acres, a popular choose-and-cut Christmas tree farm. A funeral mass will be held for Ms. Quirbach Saturday, October 20, 2012, at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church. Services will begin at 11am. The family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the San Vicente Valley Club to support academic scholarships for

deserving youth, or to Sharp Hospice Care by calling: 619740-4200. Bonham Bros & Stewart Mortuary and Cremation Service is assisting the family. Please sign the guest book online at www.legacy.com/ obituaries/ramonasentinel.

Racheal Ann Gilmore 1931 – 2012

Racheal Ann Gilmore, 81, of Ramona, CA, passed away peacefully on October 8, 2012, at home surrounded by family. Racheal was born

April 30, 1931, in Spencer, Iowa. She graduated from Moline High School in Moline, Illinois, in 1949 and moved with her family to the San Fernando Valley in 1956. While pursuing her education by attending management classes at Pepperdine University and Cal-State Fullerton, she worked her way up through the ranks as Executive Secretary before being promoted to Manager of Customer Service for Hughes Air Craft. After 25 years of dedicated service at Hughes Aircraft, she retired in 1986 and moved with her husband of 42 years, Norton “Corky” Gilmore, to Ramona, California. She was an active member of First Congregational Church, volunteer for Friends of the Library, member of The Republican Women, past board member of Boys and Girls Club of Ramona and numerous other volunteer activities. She enjoyed traveling, playing golf, cards, fishing, cooking and spending time with her family. Racheal is preceded in death by her parents, Dale and Alberta Pitzer;

daughter, Christine Carlson; and step-daughter, Gail Zotovich. She is survived by her husband, Norton “Corky” Gilmore; son, John (Shavawn) Carlson of Texas; daughter, Pam (Bill) Pollock of Missouri: step-son, Steven (Shelley) Gilmore of California; sister, Shirley (Bill) Intres of Arkansas; nine grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. Racheal lived her life to the fullest. She never met a stranger and everyone she touched was better for knowing her. Her beautiful spirit, zest for life and witty sense of humor will be greatly missed by her family and numerous friends. The family would like to extend their gratitude to Elizabeth Hospice for their compassionate care. A Celebration of Life gathering will be held on October 13, 2012, at 11:00 a.m. at First Congregational Church of Ramona, 404 8th Street, Ramona.

Proposition 38

Tax to Fund Education and Early Childhood Programs. This measure would increase personal income tax rates, for 12 years, on annual earnings over $7,316, using a sliding scale from .4 percent at the low end to 2.2 percent for individuals earning over $2.5 million to fund schools, childcare and preschool, and to pay state debt-service costs. During the first four years it would allocate 60 percent of revenues to K-12 schools, 30 percent to repay state debt, and 10 percent to early childhood programs. After that, 85 percent of revenues would

go to K-12, and 15 percent to early childhood. It is expected that in 2013-2014, about $10 billion would be collected with the amount to increase over time.

Proposition 39

Tax Treatment for Multistate Businesses. Clean Energy and Energy Efficiency Funding. Proposition 39 requires multi-state businesses to calculate their California income tax liability based on the percentage of their sales in California. It would repeal existing law that gives those businesses an option to choose a tax liability formula that provides a favorable tax treatment for businesses with property and payroll outside the state. From the anticipated revenue increase, $550 million annually for five years would fund projects that create energy efficiency and clean energy jobs in California.

Proposition 40

Redistricting. State Senate Districts. Voting yes on this measure would approve new State Senate districts to be drawn by the Citizens Redistricting Commission. If new districts are rejected, the State Senate boundary lines will be adjusted by officials supervised by the California Supreme Court. The districts are revised every 10 years.

Teacher offers fun, hands-on science activities By KAREN BRAINARD Ramona Lutheran School Teacher Frank Lucio, who enjoys sharing his zest for science, is offering a science enrichment lab at the school this year that is open to homeschooled students. He is still accepting students to join his lab this semester. In his lab there are no tests, no notes, and no grades. “Just come in, get messy, and have fun,” said Lucio, who is retired from Ramona Unified School District. The science lab is part of the RLS Learning Center Program, a new program that provides sessions that extend what is taught in regular classes and are set up like electives. In addition to science, sessions are offered for grades kindergarten through eight in such subjects as music, art, and writing. The labs are divided by age groups and meet on Wednesdays at Ramona Lutheran School. For first- and secondgraders attending his science enrichment lab, Lucio said there are many demonstrations and hands-on activities. “My goal for the little ones is to give them as much science vocabulary as I can,” he said. For third and fourth grades, Lucio gives students lab activities that will help them understand scientific concepts and stimulate an interest in science. The enrichment activi-

Lessons learned from the Cedar, Witch wildfires

uation plan for Ramona is on the sheriff’s website, sdsheriff.net/patrolstations/ ramona.html. Instead of evacuating, some in Ramona have suggested shelter-in-place areas be designated. In May 2011, a survey revealed that over 60 percent of Ramonans do not plan to leave in the next wildfire so they can protect their homes. In a mandatory evacuation, residents have the option of leaving or staying, but they will not be allowed back until officials deem it safe. Kremensky doesn’t advise staying or shelter-inplace. “Fire’s dynamic. It’s

ever-changing,” he said. “Shelter-in-place — we do not recommend it and we don’t support it. It’s not the safe thing to do.” Kremensky mentioned other fires where people lost their lives by staying at their homes or a designated shelter-in-place. If homeowners wait too long to leave and have to be rescued, he said, firefighters are pulled away from fighting the fires and are putting themselves and their engines at risk to save those lives. Recently retired sheriff’s Lt. Julie Sutton, whose last assignment was in Ramona, said in a meeting last year that the traffic jams during the Witch fire evac-

uations occurred because people waited too long to leave. “We’re encouraging people to leave, leave early, have a plan,” said Kremensky. He pointed out that Ramona has 40,000 people, 10,000 homes and just six fire engines between the Ramona Fire Department/ Cal Fire and the Cleveland National Forest station. To alleviate the traffic jams that occurred as evacuees tried to head out west on State Route 67, the only safe way out in 2007, the Ramona Community Planning Group, the county, and the Ramona Municipal Water District have been working on establishing an emergency evacuation route. That route is designed to take evacuees through county grasslands and Ramona Municipal Water District properties north of Ramona Airport and eventually lead drivers to Archie Moore Road and Route 67 or down Highland Valley Road. The county is working on finalizing an agreement with

the water district. Kremensky acknowledged that emergency responders have learned that residents want to get back to their properties as soon as possible, but he added that safety comes first. One of the problems in the 2007 fire that prevented people from being allowed to return was lack of water and unsafe water conditions because, with electricity out, the pumps at Ramona’ water district’s Poway Pump station could not transfer water up the hill. To assure that water is available to Ramona, even if the electricity goes out, the water district is exploring the addition of a natural gas line to its Poway Pump Station. By adding gas-driven pumps to the station, the system would turn over to the gas pumps if electricity shuts off, said David Barnum, district general manager. “We hope to not have a disruption of service,” he said. He added that customers may still be asked to conserve because the

Continued from page 1

district would want to make sure water is available for all hydrants. Some residents have taken water and power availability into their own hands by digging wells or buying generators. Another problem in Ramona during the fire was evacuating pets, especially horses. Dan DeSousa, deputy director of the county’s Department of Animal Control Services, said his staff has spoken to groups to educate people on pet evacuations. “It is ultimately the animal owners’ responsibility to evacuate pets,” he said. DeSousa described animal evacuations in the 2003 Cedar wildfire as chaos but said the response was better in 2007. “It’s people learning from the past,” he said. Since 2007, he said, all animal control officers are equipped with laptops and a GPS system to help locate areas where animals need to be rescued. “These will save seconds,” he noted. “Seconds

can make the difference between life and death in getting an animal out.” The department emphasizes the importance of animal identification and suggests micro-chipping. DeSousa encourages horse owners to have trailers, and for all pet owners to have a disaster kit that includes water and food for each animal. Information on a pet disaster plan and kit can be found at www.sddac.com/ docs/Pet%20Disaster%20 Plan.pdf. Sites in the county, such as ranches or boarding facilities, have been identified as animal staging areas during evacuations, including several in Ramona, DeSousa said. What sites are used depend on the location of the fire and where it is moving. If Ramona is under a mandatory evacuation, DeSousa said Ramona sites will not be opened. “Our goal is we don’t want to move horses time and time again,” said DeSousa. Pet owners will be alerted where to take their animals on the county Office of Emergency Services website, www.sdcounty. ca.gov/oes/index.html, KOGO radio, or at the department’s emergency number, 619-236-2341.

Fire survivors invited to anniversary picnic All fire survivors are invited to a five-year anniversary picnic of the Witch Fire on Sunday, Oct. 21, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Gazebo in the Rancho Bernardo Community Park. Fire survivors are holding the picnic to celebrate how far everyone has come since the devastating fire tore through Ramona, Poway, Rancho Bernardo, and other communities. The event is a Bring Your Own-style picnic. Participants are asked to bring a dish to serve 10 to share. Suggestions are an appetizer, dessert, or salad. Paper products and bottled water will be provided, and a limited number of tables and chairs will be available. Rancho Bernardo Community Park is at 18042 W. Bernardo Drive in Rancho Bernardo.

and of those 318 have been rebuilt or permitted. California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection separates the building losses in the Witch Fire by areas and reports that 581 primary structures were destroyed in the unincorporated area, which includes Ramona.

According to Cal Fire, the Witch fire burned 197,990 acres from Santa Ysabel to Rancho Santa Fe and destroyed 1,125 residential structures. The Witch Fire started about 12:35 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 21, in the Witch Creek area east of Ramona and immediately threat-

Five years ago, he had submitted plans to the county for a home on his pad that overlooks San Pasqual Valley. At the site, he had an 1,100-squarefoot shop that he was living in until his house was built.

The 64-year-old man said the news for his area was “pathetic.” “I had no idea what was going on,” he said. When he heard on the radio that a fire started in San Pasqual Valley, Young said he knew it was time to leave. “I wasn’t going to chance it,” he said. At 2 a.m., Young said many of his neighbors were still at home. On his drive down Highland Valley Road in the middle of the night, Young said he saw a couple of fire engines but encountered no problems driving out. “I was lucky,” he said. When he returned the following Thursday and saw his shop destroyed and machines charred, Young said he was still optimistic. “Over time my sense of optimism has kind of taken a hit,” he admitted. Young did not have insurance because, he said, it was very expensive. He noted that the county considered his shop as his dwelling, which allowed him to obtain a trailer through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

et me ask you a few questions. Do carbohydrates make you fat? How was fat added to your body? Is sugar the culprit that makes us fat? Is the Atkins diet the way to go? Last time we talked about an overview of metabolism, what your basal metabolic

rate is, why just using the scale isn’t the best way to measure progress, and why maintaining or adding lean body mass is so critical to your metabolism. This week’s fitness University 101 class is on carbohydrates and protein. So let’s get started.

Starting with carbohydrates: What are carbs? Let’s start with sunlight. When sunlight strikes on the plant, the energy from the sunlight is transformed in the plant into energy. Carbohydrates are the most abundant organic substance on the planet. Carbohydrates are made of three molecules: carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen — CHO. I’m sure you’ve heard so many people say “oh, carbohydrates are bad for me.” But that is just not the case. We need carbs for energy. Carbs are broken down and transformed into glucose or simple sugars.

Glucose is used to fuel the brain, nervous system, and the muscles. Carbohydrates along with the other two macronutrients — protein and fat — in excess will convert into stored energy also known as body fat. Here are some basic guidelines for how much carbohydrates one should eat. You can eat between as high as 70% and as low as 50% of your calories from carbohydrates. You could go lower, but my experience has shown a decrease in performance. Now let’s talk about carbohydrate sources. The best sources are going to come from natural sources. These are sources like vegetables, fruits, and tubers. What in the world is a tuber? A tuber is a potato, sweet potato, or yam and the like. Let’s move on the proteins. Proteins are the building blocks of our body. If you break down a protein, you will find amino acids. There are essential and

non-essential amino acids. Essential amino acids we must get from our diet. You can think of protein as the lumber and building materials that you need to build a house. Proteins help create structure and rebuild muscle after exercise. Protein also helps regulate bodily function including hormones. Before moving on, let’s take a step back and think about those essential and nonessential amino acids. The essential amino acids you must get from complete protein sources. These complete protein sources come from anything that walked, swam, or flew at one point while they were alive. Some have said, and it very well may be close to the truth, that you can combine certain incomplete proteins to form complete proteins. But why should we do the job of nature when we can choose sources of fresh meat, chicken, and fish that are complete

sources of protein? So, students, these are the basics of carbohydrates and protein — and let me emphasize basics. Think of it like this. Your body is a house. The proteins you eat help to build the house, they create the foundation: sturdy, straight and plum walls, the roof, all of the structure that is in the house. Carbohydrates help to fuel all of the functions of the house. The fireplace, the stove, the lights, and all of the electricity in the house carbohydrates. OK, class, we will see you next time for chapter 5 and 6. In those chapters we will study fats and aerobic exercise. Until then, train hard, eat right, and always be you, only better!

Test Your Goals

o you decided to apply the power of action and go after your goals. But before you act to achieve your goal — particularly a major, life-changing one — you may want to ask these questions first: •How badly do I want this? Do you have a burning desire to achieve your goal? Or is it something that you think is just nice to have, something you can do without?

If your goal is big and can have a considerable impact in your life, it is best to choose a goal you are passionate about. Having a goal you feel lukewarm about or don’t get excited thinking about it may keep you from reaching it. At this point, you may want to think about what motivated you to set this goal in the first place. Your answer to that question will help you understand how you want to proceed. •How will this change my life? Once you have achieved your goal, how do you think will you change as a person? Will certain areas of your life be affected, such as lifestyle and relationships? If so, how will they be affected? Picture yourself, the people around you and your situation. Let it unfold like a movie in your mind. Do you

Free composting workshop scheduled in Collier Park A free workshop on the basics of composting and the benefits it can provide will be offered in Collier Park, 626 E St., on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 10 a.m. to noon. The Solana Center, in partnership with the County of San Diego, will host the event. Attendees will participate in a hands-on demonstration and be eligible to win opportunity drawing prizes, such as a kitchen scrap collector and a compost thermometer. Composting is the controlled decomposition of organic material such as leaves, grass, fruit, and vegetables. Using microbes, decomposers, or worms, food scraps are broken down into a rich soil amendment. Amending soil with compost and

like what you see? Do you like what you feel at that particular moment? •Will I be compromising any of my values in achieving this? Is your goal aligned with your values, or does it contradict them? What were the values at work when you made your goal in the first place? What do you think will be the consequences when you reach your goal, if it is not consistent with your values? Can you take the consequences? How would you feel? •Does it feel right? When you turn out the lights at night, your intuition and inner voice will be your guide. If it feels right, go for it. If not, think it over again. If you get all the right answers on this test, then you are on the right path to meet or exceed your goals. Steve is a Ramona resident.

worm castings can conserve water, reduce the need for fertilizer, and increase plant vigor and pest resistance, according to the Solana Center. Composting and vermicomposting­— composting with worms—return valuable nutrients to the soil and divert organic waste from landfills, say workshop organizers. The Solana Center, a nonprofit organization, says its mission is to empower students and adults through education and action to become environmental stewards in their communities.

Pulling the plug on Zuckerberg? Love it or hate it, Facebook is everywhere. With one billion users (91.3% legitimate), it’s become THE way to stay in touch about family, activities, and politics. In New Zealand, though, Facebook is testing ways for users to promote their personal posts. For a mere $7 New Zealanders promote their messages so their busy online friends don’t lose their engagement announcement among dozens of com-

ments about sheepherding or surfing lessons. Sounds suspiciously like advertising to me! Facebook president Mark Zuckerberg has been under siege recently from investors who bought his stock, only to see its value halved within days. Suspecting they were cheated, these investors want new corporate revenues FAST. Simultaneously, users are screaming about privacy matters, changing formats, and questionable

management decisions. Revealing personal details without prior permission isn’t a good way to make friends. As word leaks out about his fear-mongering about messages getting lost in the crowd, Facebook accounts may start closing en masse. Naturally, I appreciate Facebook’s need to generate revenues. My clients sometimes advertise with them. My ad agency uses it as a public relations vehicle.

By KAREN BRAINARD Century 21 San Vicente has been ordered to pay damages and attorney’s costs to Century 21 Real Estate LLC in a U.S. District Court judgment. Arnold Fry, owner/broker of the San Vicente real estate office, said he could not comment on the court case and judgment, but added that there are two sides to the story. A spokesperson for Century 21 corporate office also said it could not comment on litigation with franchisees. The judgment was filed on Sept. 25 in the Southern District of California and requires the San Vi-

cente franchise, along with defendants Fry and his partner, Helen Jupin, to pay $107,000 for damages and just over $22,000 in attorney fees for continued use of the Century 21 trademark. According to court documents, Century 21 terminated its agreement with the San Vicente office in August 2011, and San Vicente was to permanently and immediately discontinue all use of the Century 21 trademarks. Fry said the San Vicente real estate office has been in Ramona for about 25 years and will remain. “We will be in business in Ramona doing what we do,” he said.

Call me old-fashioned, but I still believe personal communications matter. A LOT! Those who rely strictly on Facebook to communicate will be limited in their abilities to tell their story.

Yes, it’s a worthwhile tool, but it will not, cannot, and should not replace personal interaction. And if you’re doing anything remotely related to selling yourself or your business, nothing’s more effective than that one-onone conversation. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing. Mr. Marketing has spent 30 years telling his clients what they need to hear. Talk to him directly at www.askmrmarketing.com.

SPORTS

Bulldog spikers earn two more league wins By JOE NAIMAN Ramona High School’s girls volleyball team won Valley League matches Oct. 9 at home against Mission Vista and Oct. 11 at Orange Glen. The two wins gave the Bulldogs a six-match winning streak, a 4-0 league record, and a 14-4 overall season win-loss statistic. Ramona took a 25-21, 24-26, 25-23, 25-21 victory over Mission Vista. “They weren’t as close as the scores looked,” said Ramona coach Connie Halfaker. “We were not playing great. In fact, I would say we were playing our least effective defense in games one and two.” Ramona had a 17-12 lead in the second game

before the Timberwolves came back for the victory. “Our serving was riddled with errors, service errors, in the first couple of games,” Halfaker said. “Mission Vista was a good defensive team,” said Halfaker. “Their servereceive was really good, so they were able to utilize their offensive strategy pretty much all night.” The Bulldog players picked up on that. “They started playing defense,” Halfaker said. “By game four we actually were pretty well in command.” The transition wasn’t immediate. “Midway through game three we were playing determined defense but were struggling to click,” Halfaker said.

Abby Roulier, Callie Guasti, and Christina Barrameda wait at the net for a Mission Hills serve.

Julie Voorhes, Christina Barrameda and Jennah Hickle get set to return a Mission Hills serve.

Julie Vorhes led the Bulldogs with 17 digs. “Julie absolutely stepped up the defense,” said Halfaker. Jennah Hickle and Christina Barrameda each added nine digs. Abby Roulier and Kelsie Whitten shared the team lead with two blocks apiece. Ramona played both matches without firststring setter Mikayla Derochie, who injured her ankle during practice on Oct. 3. Derochie participated in limited practice Oct. 12. Cassidy Shields has taken over as the Bulldogs’ setter in Derochie’s absence.

“She hung in very, very well,” Halfaker said of Shields. “We are just really, really proud of her.” Shields had 38 assists against the Timberwolves. Hickle and Roulier each had nine kills. Barrameda had four serving aces while Roulier had three. Ramona’s problems

Water Dawgs’ win streak hits eight before tournament loss By JOE NAIMAN Ramona High School’s boys water polo team ex-

Bulldog football loses battle against Titans By BILL TAMBURRINO

R

amona’s Bulldogs battled the defending CIF champions, Poway High School, in a Palomar League contest and lost to the Titans 37-21. Poway had a decided edge in statistics but the pugnacious Bulldogs stayed in the game until the end. The Dawgs scored first on a six-yard pass from Hunter McHargue to Brandon Fitzpatrick with 5:15 left in the first quarter. Tyler Vargas converted

his first of three PATs and the Dawgs took a 7-0 lead into the second period. Poway answered with 23 unanswered second quarter points. The Titan’s final score in the first half was a safety on a blocked punt. Ramona kicked off and the Titans had excellent field position. Keyshaun Crichlow was called on to blitz from his linebacker position. The sophomore forced a fumble from the Titan quarterback and T-Bone Williams then picked up a Titan fumble and rambled 63 yards for

a touchdown as time expired in the half with Ramona trailing 23-14. The third period was a defensive battle and the score remained 23-14 going into the final 12 minutes. McHargue hit Fitzpatrick with a 30-yard TD toss with 9:11 left on the clock and suddenly Ramona was just two points behind the Titans. Poway then went to the air and took the lead with a 47-yard TD pass to take a 30-21 lead with 6:34 left in the game.

against Mission Vista also included Hickle straining her hip flexor muscle, so both Hickle and Derochie missed the match against Orange Glen. Halfaker also rested Whitten for part of that three-game match, which Ramona won by 25-13, 25-14, and 25-15 margins.

“It was a really nice opportunity to give some starters a little bit of a rest,” Halfaker said. “Just a really good team win. Everybody that was healthy contributed.” Whitten had nine aces, and the Bulldogs gained a total of 22 points on her serves. Barrameda led the team with six kills while Roulier added five kills. Roulier, Shields, and Laurel Kerner led the team with a block apiece. Middle blocker Callie Guasti had three kills in six swings and no hitting errors. Kerner, who was Ramona’s other middle blocker, had three kills in three swings. “It’s nice to get your middles, when you can get them the ball, to be that effective,” Halfaker said. The Bulldogs travel to Valley Center for a league match today and will spend tomorrow and Saturday at the Southern California Invitational tournament.

Poway’s defense then went on the attack and that pressure resulted in an intercepted pass that led to the Titan’s final score. The Titan defense forced three fumbles and an interception as they won the battle of turnovers. Ramona’s defense forced three fumbles and recovered two of them. Both Tanner Williamses­—Tanner S., aka T-bone, and Tanner—recovered fumbles. T-Bone had another outstanding game. He had See FOOTBALL on page 34

tended its winning streak to eight games before a loss in the Vellenkamp Tournament in Orange County. Ramona’s seventh consecutive win was an Oct. 9 Valley League match at Army-Navy, and the Bulldogs won their first game of the Oct. 12-13 Vellenkamp Tournament before losing their next three and concluding the tournament with a victory. The game against Army-Navy was Ramona’s first against the Warriors since Donnie Williams has coached the Bulldogs. Ramona led 5-1 after the first quarter, 7-2 at halftime, and 10-2 after three periods before the game ended with the Bulldogs on the favorable side of the 13-5 score.

Ramona goalie Isaac Gross made 11 saves during the three quarters he was in the nets. Williams’ efforts to avoid running up the score included having his players work on tougher shots, and he also moved players to different positions. Gross played in the field during the fourth quarter while Matteo Franchello took over in goal. Franchello made two saves against the Warriors. Franchello also scored three goals, as did Karl Schwettman. Ryan Hall, Jesse Reiling, and Thomas Abbott each had two goals against Army-Navy while Cory Davison scored once. The Bulldogs took a total of 27 shots. Ramona converted only See WATER POLO on page 27

Bulldog golf’s Hirsch, Costan shoot career lows Athlete of the Week By BILL TAMBURRINO The Ramona High School girls golf team continues to play well

and receives kudos from its coach, John Rathbun. “Every girl on the team has recorded her personal best score in matches

three of 10 extra-player opportunities. “We struggled a little bit in that tight pool for some reason, even though it’s similar to ours,” Williams said. The Bulldogs made their only five-meter penalty shot in Army-Navy’s shallow-deep pool. Ramona had 16 steals against the Warriors. Reiling and Gross had three apiece, two steals apiece were recorded by Franchello, Austin Benke, Garrett Klem, and Vinnie Talento, and Abbott and Davison each had one steal. “We were able to control them defensively,” Williams said. All five of Ramona’s Vellenkamp Tournament games were played at Sonora High School in La Habra. The first three of those were against San Diego Section teams. The 11-9 win over Steele Canyon to open the tournament gave Ramona two wins over the Cougars for the year, as a non-league match Sept. 25 ended with a 10-9 Ramona triumph. The first quarter of the tournament game was tied at two goals apiece, but Ramona had a 6-3 halftime lead. “We did push it up,” Williams said. The Cougars narrowed the deficit to 8-6 by the end

this year and therefore has improved,” Rathbun said. “Two girls are firstyear golfers and are really improving as the season winds down. We are 4-3 in the Valley League and are competing. We will end league play with a winning record (Orange Glen will most likely forfeit again). I think that the girls are having fun. I know that I am having coaching them.” Bre Hirsh shot a career low at Eagles Crest against Orange Glen by carding a 49. In doing so, she also picked up her first medalist honor. Kailey Hill shot 53. Caitlyn Doulgeropoulos recorded a 53. Rachel Costan fired a 61. Shannon Curristan shot 66 and Amanda Raines, 65. Rathbun was also

pleased with his team’s effort in a 236-254 loss to Oceanside and the Oceanside Municipal Golf Course. “The girls did a good job in that match. Even though it was a loss we did have one of our lowest team scores. Kudos go out to Rachel (Costan) with a career low 48. Bre (Hirsh) had a career low at Eagles Crest. I am proud of the way the girls keep on working and improving.” Against Oceanside, three Lady Dawgs shot in the forties. Hill shot 45, Doulgeropoulos carded a 47, and Costan had a career low of 48. Hirsh just missed the forties with a 50. Curristan recorded a 64 and Raines shot a nonscoring 65.

From page 26

“Our guys were playing solid.” — Coach Donnie Williams of the third period and 8-7 early in the fourth quarter. “They didn’t give up on us,” Williams said. Ramona scored the next two goals for a 10-7 lead and had an 11-8 lead before Steele Canyon scored at the buzzer. “I think we finished on a few more shots than we had in the past,” Williams said. The Bulldogs’ other Oct. 12 game was an 18-12 loss to Scripps Ranch. “We got down in a hole early,” said Williams. The Falcons had a 6-3 lead after one period. “The guys fought back,” Williams said. “They started understanding what was going on.” Scripps Ranch led 8-5 at halftime, but Ramona reduced the deficit to 1110 by the end of the third quarter. “It was a great big comeback for us,” Williams said. In water polo an ejection, or exclusion, is a 20-second penalty in which a team must play short-handed unless a goal is scored against them during that penalty period. A player with three ejections is majored, or removed from the game.

During the fourth quarter, four Ramona players were majored. “It pretty much turned the tide of the game,” Williams said. “Up until that point I thought it was a real good game for us.” Williams took 12 players to the tournament, and in the absence of a penalty seven players from each team are in the pool, so the four ejections gave Ramona only one bench player. “The middle two quarters of the game were very well done by our guys,” Williams said. When Grossmont and Ramona played in a preseason scrimmage, the Bulldogs didn’t score until the third period. The Foothillers were Ramona’s first Oct. 13 opponent. The Bulldogs scored the first goal. Grossmont led 3-2 after one period, but Ramona tied the game early in the second quarter. Grossmont scored the next four goals for a 7-3 halftime lead. “That second quarter kind of hurt us a little bit,” Williams said. Grossmont eventually prevailed by a 12-7 margin. “That’s better than last

time,” Williams said. “That’s not a bad loss for us.” Servite High School of Anaheim was Ramona’s next opponent. “They were a good young team,” Williams said of the Friars. Ramona had a 3-1 lead before Servite scored the final three goals of the first quarter. “They were really good on their man-up,” Williams said. Servite had a 6-4 lead before Ramona scored the final goal of the first half. The Friars led 8-7 after three periods and won the game by a 10-8 score. “You could see the fatigue,” Williams said of his players. “We had opportunities to finish our shots but just missed.” Ramona’s 2:30 game against Beaumont was the Bulldogs’ fifth in a 24-hour period. The Cougars fell victim to Ramona’s offensive and defensive success. The 14-5 game included a 3-0 first-quarter lead, an 8-2 halftime score, and an 11-3 score entering the final period. “Our guys were playing solid,” Williams said. The league win gave the Bulldogs a 2-0 Valley League mark while the Bulldogs ended the tournament with an overall 13-7 record.

Matteo Franchello brings European experience to Bulldog water polo team By JOE NAIMAN Playing water polo for Ramona High School has required some adjustments for Matteo Franchello. The Italian exchange student’s English language skills are improving, although he is still learning slang and terminology. He brought his European experience to the Bulldogs but is also transitioning into the American high school style of play. The adjustments didn’t prevent Franchello from scoring 28 goals in Ramona’s six games during the week of Oct. 8-13, and earning Ramona Sentinel Athlete of the Week honors. His lowest offensive output during the week was three goals during Ramona’s 13-5 win, Oct. 9, at Army-Navy, where Ramona coach Donnie Williams’ attempts not to run up the score limited Franchello’s shots. In fact, Williams placed goalie Isaac Gross in the field for the fourth quarter against Army-Navy while putting Franchello in the nets, where he made two saves against the Warriors while allowing only one goal. “He’s been a big part of our whole program,” Williams said. “He’s done a good job.” Franchello scored 25 goals in Ramona’s five Vellenkamp Tournament games Oct. 12-13. The Bulldogs played fellow San Diego Section school Steele Canyon to open the tournament, and Franchello had five goals and an assist in the Bulldogs’ 11-9 win. He scored six goals in Ramona’s concluding tournament—a 14-6 victory over Beaumont. “He knows the game. He knows how it’s supposed to be played. He’s teaching the rest of the team to be better and stronger,” Williams said. Franchello doesn’t necessarily need fluent oral communication to guide his teammates. During the Army-Navy game he also had two steals.

MATTEO FRANCHELLO

“He knows the aspect of playing solid defense,” Williams said. Franchello mentors his teammates on defensive skills as well as shooting. “He’s teaching Jesse (Reiling) and Levi (Vermeulen) and Ryan (Hall) and the rest of the team the aspects of the game they’re not wellversed in,” Williams said. In addition to his field shooting skills, Franchello has missed one penalty shot all year. “He doesn’t always use the same shot,” Williams said. “He’s got a quick release but he’s very accurate as well.” Not everything goes smoothly. Franchello played on a club team in Italy. While the United States also has club water polo, a high school team develops its players, and that is new to Franchello. “He still struggles at times because they’re so structured over there,” Williams said. The fact that Williams and the rest of the team speak English is also an obstacle Franchello is trying to overcome. “Sometimes the language barrier comes into play,” Williams said. “He says I talk too fast.” That may be the only time Franchello tells something to Williams instead of the other way around. “He’s easy for me to talk to,” Williams said. “He’s trying to learn and understand what I’m saying. He really tries to understand what we’re trying to teach over here.”

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

Marco Cobian also drew praise from the coach. “Marco threw the ball well and had key scrambles for big plays. Noah White and Todd Roberts had key receptions,” said Shuler.

The offensive line and the entire defense played their best games of the season. The frosh are now 4-3 on the year and 1-1 in league action. Coach Mike Ernst’s junior varsity remained in first place by beating Poway 12-7 despite only running 25 plays on offense. Poway shut down the Bulldog running attack so the versatile Dawgs went to the air attack. Colton Harris shredded the Titan defense with 151 receiving yards and a TD. Ryan Lopez also hit Wyatt Scott with a 6-yard TD pass for the winning touchdown. The defense came through in the clutch. Michael Camps intercepted a Titan pass in the end zone with 40 seconds left in the game to ensure the win. The JVs are now 5-1-1 and 2-0 in the Palomar League.

Sports Commentary Editor’s Note: This was sent to the Academic and Membership Affairs division of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. By IRENA COZ-LUCAS To Whom it May Concern of the Powers That Be at NCAA: Who among you have had your child come to you and share their dreams and lofty aspirations? I would hazard a guess that most of us with children have at one time or another listened to such reflections. When my daughter, Gina, began high school she “dreamt big” and shared with me her impressive academic and athletic goals. Gina has gone on to not only “talk that talk” but has worked harder than any teenager I know to “walk that talk,” humbly, I might add. As the parent of this elite student-athlete I have vowed to defend and support her in her quest for excellence with a passionate ferocity. One of the first ways in which I

35

NCAA crushing student-athlete dreams

sought to support Gina’s dreams was to seek out the very best and academically rigorous high school education to be found in Ramona, Calif . This search landed Gina in Ramona Community School’s Mountain Valley Academy High School program, an independent study college preparatory program. I call MVAHS college prep because that is indeed what it seems to be modeled after, college. For example, Gina attends classes at set times on set days such as in college. Is it her choice to attend class or not? Of course, as it is in college. Is it her choice to do the homework, reading, projects, and study? Of course, as it is in college (or the mainstream public high school for that matter). Is it her choice whether to seek out the teachers before or after class for tutorials or extra help when she needs clarification and assistance? Of course, as it is in college. Gina has chosen to DO all

of the above, and the outcome of these choices is reflected in her 4.2 GPA, her nearly straight A’s throughout 4 years of high school, and her being ranked 2nd in her class. She has maintained these academic achievements while putting 18 to 24 hours a week of practice into her chosen sport of swimming. She has also attained an “elite” status in her athletics, hence her currently being recruited by a NCAA Division 1 (in swim) college. Gina is the quintessential student-athlete. She is by far more prepared for the college experience than most mainstream public high school students. Now she is being told by NCAA that her high school classes, all her hard work, and her academically rigorous choices DO NOT COUNT! It is my understanding that your organization, NCAA, has changed its legislation to close its doors to academically ineligible student-athletes who have abused the system. In so doing,

NCAA is in essence slamming the door in the face of elite student-athletes such as my daughter. I was under the impression that NCAA was all about advocacy for student-athletes. Apparently I was mistaken. I would argue that if one or two unqualified student-athletes slip through the cracks, so what? Better that than slamming the door in the face of even just one student-athlete who is qualified and who has worked harder than most and overcome God knows what to EARN scholarship recognition to a NCAA Division 1 or 2 college. Furthermore, without any “grandfather clause” to this new legislation, the door is not only slammed, it is locked for high school seniors such as my daughter! When she signed up for NCAA Clearinghouse there were NO red flags that went up when she entered her high school, MVA. Now, seven weeks into her senior year of high school she is informed of this seemingly

arbitrary NCAA ruling which discounts her previous three years of hard work and excellence because of “seat time”!? Unwittingly I have guided my daughter into the role as victim of the NCAA’s discrimination against 21st century education! What does your organization have to say to an elite studentathlete such as her? Please, I would love to have Mr. Rorvig, Mr. Dana, Ms. Roesler, and any or every member of the NCAA High School Review Board address my daughter directly and explain to her why, through no fault of her own, she will be unable to attain her goal of swimming for a NCAA Division 1 college. Please explain to Gina and the other MVAHS juniors, seniors, and recent graduates why the NCAA is discriminating against them attaining their hard-earned goals and senselessly crushing their dreams.

The future of Cuyamaca State Park: Part II

T

he most pivotal event for the Cuyamaca Rancho State Park (CRSP) occurred between Oct. 25 and Nov. 3, 2007. The Witch Creek fire ripped through the park destroying 24,308 acres of the 24,780-acre park. Ninety-five percent of the conifer trees burned. Seventy-five percent of the park’s oak trees were instantly charcoal. The landscape changed, perhaps forever. The California State Parks Department, recognizing the utter devastation and recently obtaining more land adjacent to the park, is working on the General Plan Update for CRSP that was last looked

at in 1986. Seeking public opinion, the first of several planned meetings was held Oct. 3, 2012, at Viejas Casino in the Dream Catcher Showroom. I picked up my pal, John Degenfelder, for the evening event and drove out

to Alpine hopes held high. John and I talked about the possibilities ahead and the meetings we had attended in the past regarding CRSP. John and I are frequent visitors to the park and we both adore the scenery, wildlife, and trails. We

have ridden in the park together and, even when a rattlesnake has temporarily interrupted our serenity, we’ve appreciated its right to have such a beautiful home for us to visit. As we entered the room I noted the approximately 125 people in attendance. The perimeter of the room had maps on bulletin boards with tables containing Post-it notes and pens. Computers lined one wall and every screen had the same image illuminated in the dimly lit room. Many faces I recognized, some I did not. John and I took our seats right in the front row and looked at each other with anticipation.

Equestrians ride the Cuyamaca State Park trails.

As the speakers rose, spoke and introduced one another to the rest of us, we listened to historians, biologists, archaeologists and other experts explain how devastating the 2003 fire was for the park and all life within it. As the experts explained the need for the General Plan Update, there were some groans and sighs from the audience, subtle but audible. I scratched my notes as each spoke but noticed the mood in the room shift. After listening to each of the speakers, we were invited to visit the workshop stations around the room. Our input was requested at each of the stations. What would we like to see and where? What did we find important in the park? Were there any ideas for activities or facilities we wanted to contribute? We each took a survey on the computers provided and milled around the stations chatting and writing on maps, boards and Postit notes, which we then stuck to the various maps. The state park staff thanked us, then proceeded to the verbal input portion of the evening. Those wishing to speak put their name on a card and handed it in, then were called to stand and contribute ideas. Trail supporters stood one by one and spoke in support of the park and the need for trails to remain open and connected and suggested facilities such as camps and parking in various areas. Someone stood when her name was called and asked for all equestrians in the room to stand. A very interesting thing happened: three-quarters of the people in the room stood up. I know there

were hikers and mountain bikers in attendance. I know quite a few and saw some there that night, but to have that large a presence from the equestrian community spoke volumes. Several people told state parks staff that the fees were way too high, even though we were not there to discuss fees as they are not part of the general plan update process, but it came up time and again. Areas that used to be free to use are now fee areas, or are becoming fee areas, and the annual pass for use of state parks jumped dramatically. The evening wound up with state parks staff informing the audience that the next meeting should be held in the springtime, and that other meetings may be held with groups of stakeholders between then and now. They strongly suggested keeping ourselves updated by visiting their website, thanked us for coming out, and that was that. It really was a meeting to explain the general plan process, gather public input and little more. Much less exciting than the meetings we’d attended in the past with hopes of broadening public use in the park. No pomp, no frills, no hoopla. As we drove home John and I chatted about our hopes for the future of Cuyamaca and our love of the park and agreed that we are looking forward to the next meeting. I will let you know when and where that is as soon as I do. For more information, visit: parks.ca.gov/?page_ id=667. Karen Carlson is a Ramona resident.
