BY KATHY DAY It looks like the debate over rules governing land use in Solana Beach that started more than a decade ago will continue for at least a couple more months. And despite efforts by the city staff to negotiate modifications with California Coastal Commission staff and a 3-2 vote on Sept. 26 to continue working with them, most everyone agreed it’s likely the current draft of the Local Coastal Program

Land Use Plan (LUP) will be rejected. Councilman Mike Nichols, who voted to extend talks, said, “I think we will have to reject (the plan), but tonight’s not the night.” The result didn’t please representatives of the Surfrider Foundation, including Jim Jaffee of its Beach Preservation Committee, who said the next day that he’s “disappointed but hopeful. They need to adopt this. … They have allowed the homeownSee LAND, page 6

Political sign snatching concerns Del Mar residents ■ Local resident’s new novel combines high seas adventure with legal drama. Page 13

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Residents and merchants on both sides of the Proposition J campaign experienced a rude awakening over the weekend when they found their political signs had been illegally removed from their property — and much of the sign snatching happened in broad daylight. On Oct. 1, the city’s code enforcement office returned from the weekend to “a rash of phone calls,” said code enforcement officer Patty Malik, from residents asking if signs were turned in or if they

were removed by the city due to code enforcement issues. Malik said the city didn’t take the signs, and that this was a new issue for the code enforcement office. “Many of the calls are from merchants wondering where their signs went,” she said. “We’ve never had calls about people taking signs. This is the first time.” Prop J supporter Howard Gad had a different take on the issue, however. Gad, who heads the FOR Del Mar’s Future campaign, said this is “not anything new” for

Del Mar, but the extent is significant. He said that on his side of the campaign, there have been about 20 missing signs — four taken from the campaign’s headquarters at 14th and Camino Del Mar; three from residential property near Luneta Drive; 12 found in a pile near a neighborhood gutter; and at least three found in a

residential trash can. While he said the sign-snatching doesn’t surprise him, he said he was surprised that he found the pile of signs by the gutter in broad daylight. “Usually they do this at night,” he said. “People are saying they went to the store during the day and See SIGN, Page 6

‘Painting Elf’ donation of CV wall upgrade a community ‘gift’

New spaces working to deter oversized vehicles on Carmel Vista Oversized vehicle parking has long been an issue in Carmel Valley, but the problem has seen somewhat of a solution on Carmel Vista Road. District 1 Council member Sherri Lightner reported at the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting Sept. 27 that a new painting program on the street and “aggressive enforcement” has seemed to be a success. The street was painted with 24-foot space markings so only certain size vehicles can be parked there. “It looks like it’s working,” Lightner said, noting that oversized vehicles seem to have gone down from around 15 to two. Per the San Diego Municipal Code, no vehicle can be parked continuously at one location on any public roadway for more than 72 hours. To report vehicles parked longer than 72 hours, call (858) 495-7800. The vehicle abatement unit can be reached at (858) 495-7856.

Carmel Valley planning board OKs new subdivision plan for Worsch Way BY KAREN BILLING The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board Sept. 27 unanimously recommended city approval of a plan for a new 11-lot subdivision on Worsch Way. Developer Gary Levitt went through an extensive process with the regional issues subcommittee earlier in the year, abandoning his original plan to have eight “green” homes on the hill because there was too much resistance from the neighbors. “We had the idea of doing something different,” said Levitt. “The neighbors really felt we were approaching it wrong. They felt very strongly about doing something that fitted into the existing community.” Levitt says his plan now fits the community just right, grading the hill down and having a “straight subdivision” of 11 homes at street level. The lots will range in size from 4,789 square feet to 7,967 square feet off Worsch Drive and Del Mar Trails. Neighbors in attendance were very happy with the plan and expressed gratitude that Levitt listened to their concerns. One neighbor preferred his original plan. “I’m really disappointed,” said neighbor Karen Cody. “I think we could’ve ended up with a jewel rather than just the same of everything.”

Groundbreaking set for new Solana Beach School District school The Solana Beach School District will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for its seventh district school on Nov. 15 at 3:30 p.m. The school in Pacific Highlands Ranch, located at Pacific Highlands Ranch Parkway and Blazing Star Lane, is set to open in fall of 2014. The district held a naming contest for the new elementary school and has narrowed it down to five: Pacific Highlands, Solana Ranch, Solana Canyon, Gonzales Canyon and Solana Ridge. The board is expected to select one of the five names at its Oct. 11 board meeting, held at 6:30 p.m. at the district office, 309 N. Rios Ave. in Solana Beach. — Karen Billing

‘Yes’ on CC campaign to hold open forums BY KAREN BILLING Two open forums will be held to discuss Proposition CC, Del Mar Union School District’s general obligation bond on the Nov. 6 ballot. The forums will be held Oct. 4 and Oct. 15, both at 6 p.m. at the Ocean Air Recreation Center (4770 Fairport Way, San Diego, CA 92130). Suzanne Hall, a parent from the Committee for Quality Local Schools attended the Sept. 27 Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting to inform the board about the bond and help generate the 55 percent of the vote the district will need to pass it. “Communities are known by the schools they keep,” Hall said, noting the education system is the reason many people opt to move to Carmel Valley and Del Mar. “We’re very fortunate that the schools here are excellent and it’s important we support their continued excellence.” The $76.8 million bond will cost $8.44 per $100,000 of assessed value. For the aver-

age homeowner in the district, that equals $65 a year. The bond will help pay for the cost to upgrade the district’s facilities, implement the district strategic plan for 21st Century learning and make up the deficit for what keeps getting taking away from state funding, according to the district. The cost will show up on property tax bills and is tax deductible. Hall said while the bond carries a length of 25 years to pay off, if property values escalate the district could pay down the debt faster than 25 years. The district will have flexibility in choosing their bond terms, and will have a debt service ratio of 2.1 to 1. The district is developing a new policy on the use of capital appreciation bonds (CABs) with recommendations from Dan McAllister, San Diego County treasurer-tax collector. The district expects to approve its new bond policy, which stresses fiscal responsibility, at a special meeting this week. To learn more about Yes on CC, visit

El Camino Real home approved amid neighbor concerns BY KAREN BILLING The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board approved a proposed private residence on El Camino Real with 10-1-3 vote, despite some push back from the home’s future neighbors. The single family home is planned for a parcel on El Camino Real past between Derby Downs Road and Sea Country Lane. The 2,400-square-foot home will be on a 4,129-square-foot lot. Rodney Hunt was the one board member to vote against the proposal and three board members abstained. Neighbors expressed concerns that it is not a safe ingress/egress for a home. “El Camino Real is a speedway, it’s a very unsafe

place to stick a house,” one neighbor said. The planning board also received several letters in opposition to the project, with concerns that the .09-acre lot was even developable. Manjeet Ranu, planning board co-chair, said the city determined that the property is a “lawful lot” and that the applicant has complied with all city traffic engineer suggestions. Many of the board members were complimentary of applicant Steven Ott’s design and plan. The plan will next go to a city hearing and notice will be given to neighbors within 300 feet. Neighbors in attendance said they plan to fight the development all the way.

Local man charged with scheme to defraud victims out of more than $90M A federal grand jury in San Francisco indicted James B. Catledge, of Rancho Santa Fe, and Derek F.C. Elliott, of Orangeville, Ontario, Canada, on Sept. 18, with one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and three counts of mail fraud, United States Attorney Melinda Haag announced. The charges allege a scheme in which Catledge and Elliott fraudulently solicited more than $90 million from investors to build a resort in the Dominican Republic, but the resort never opened. According to the indictment, Catledge, 45, and Elliott, 42, used a bank loan to purchase an old hotel in the Dominican Republic, which they called the Juan Dolio Resort. They then began to renovate the hotel and to solicit investments in the resort. The indictment further alleges that in their sales pitch, Catledge and Elliot failed to tell investors that the full commissions being taken from their investment were approximately 44 percent, that the renovations

TPHS graduate spearheading drive to establish legal rights for cognitively complex animals Natalie Prosin heads Nonhuman Rights Project BY KAREN BILLING Torrey Pines High School graduate Natalie Prosin is leading a fight for the legal rights of animals. At age 29, Prosin is the executive director of the Nonhuman Rights Project, a non-profit organization with a goal to establish legal “personhood” for “nonhuman animals.” “Our mission is to change the common law status of at least some nonhuman animals from mere ‘things,’ which lack the capacity to possess any legal right, to ‘persons,’ who possess such fundamental rights as bodily integrity and bodily liberty,” Prosin said. Starting next year, the Nonhuman Rights Project group will file lawsuits in state courts to attempt to give personhood status for cognitively complex animals such as great apes, dolphins, whales, elephants and African Grey parrots. This kind of case has never been done or tried before, she said. “It will be very historic, regardless of whether we win or not,” Prosin said. “The challenge has been to find jurisdictions most amenable to our arguments. We have 60 different legal issues across all 50 states; it’s about finding which state high court is most likely to rule in our favor.” Their historic efforts have recently caught a lot of attention and their journey is currently a documentary film focus of Oscarnominated filmmakers D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus. Prosin’s family moved to Del Mar from Rancho Santa Fe while she attended Torrey Pines where she was a part of the class of 2001. She graduated summa cum laude from Northeastern University in 2005, holds a master’s degree from Brown University and earned her law degree from Boston College Law School in 2011. She currently lives in Washington D.C. Prosin’s love of animals started at a young age. She

TPHS graduate Natalie Prosin is the executive director of the Nonhuman Rights Project. COURTESY rode horses at the Rancho Santa Fe Riding Club and while in high school thought she might become a veterinarian. “In college and graduate school I started focusing more on animal issues and animal law,” Prosin said. Learning more about issues such as animals used in laboratories and endangered species really drove her decision to go to law school. In her first semester at Boston College, Prosin joined the national nonprofit Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) and helped establish a student group. Her group helped get out the vote on a state ballot initiative to ban all greyhound racing; the ballot initiative was successful. Prosin also helped initiate a cage-free egg campaign on campus dining halls, distributing literature about the inhumane practices of factory farms, such as their confined conditions and how egg-laying hens must stand on a wire for their entire loves. “We persuaded all four Boston College cafeterias to switch to cage-free eggs,” Prosin said. At Boston, she also cotaught a course on environmental law and policy to undergraduates and put an animal rights twist into a lot of her curriculum. Prosin’s work did not go unnoticed by ALDF and they were able to connect

her with the Nonhuman Rights Project where she had an animal law clerkship while in college. The group hired her full-time as soon as she graduated in May 2011. “I was absolutely thrilled,” Prosin said. “I had worked with the president Steve Wise all throughout law school and really believed in what they were trying to do.” The Nonhuman Rights Project is still growing as an organization and runs with the help of about 70 volunteers. Prosin said animal cruelty laws can only go so far and that is why she hopes their efforts are successful. It is the hope that if they win their cases, these animals can be transferred to some kind of sanctuary. “I’m troubled by the exploitation of animals, whether it’s in the entertainment industry or the research lab,” Prosin said. “I’ve always been driven by protecting animals…I can lay down at night and feel very good about the work I’ve done for the day.” Prosin personally feels very strongly about advocating for animals and encourages people to stop and think because animals affect so many aspects of our lives. Prosin said animals are affected by decisions people make on food and entertainment, as well as purchases made on items that are tested on animals to things purchased that aren’t even about eating animals — Prosin cites the example of palm oil. The demand for palm oil, used in many commercial foods and personal care products, leads to the clearing of tropical forests, which destroys the habitats of endangered species such as the Sumatran Orangutan. “You can link almost anything we use to animals,” Prosin said. “It’s just about making better choices to help animals.” To learn more about Prosin’s efforts, visit

LAND continued from page 1 ers to hijack the process.” The action didn’t please the other side either. Attorney Jon Corn of the Beach and Bluff Conservancy (BBC) and the Condominium Owners of South Sierra Avenue (COOSSA), said he wished the council would have rejected the document outright. But, he added, he was pleased council members also voiced concerns about the plan and surprise and anger at how they had been treated by the Coastal Commission, which added a number of new conditions to the plan the council had

adopted in June 2011. At the center of the debate are the sections setting rules for seawalls and blufftop development. Of particular concern are property line setbacks, trigger dates, use of the mitigation fees and what would happen if a home was destroyed by a disaster. (See Box) A crowd of more than 100 residents and their supporters overflowed the council chambers during the meeting, with some moving into an adjoining room and the lobby when sheriff’s deputies and a fire marshal saw the large crowd. It included the yellowshirted supporters of the BBC and COOSSA, who wanted the council to reject

Worried About Fiscal Cliff Or Next April 15th?

Modifications The Beach and Bluff Conservancy is seeking 18 modifications in the Solana Beach Land Use Plan. Among them are the following: • Use the word “minimize” instead of “avoid” in references to impacts to public access and recreational needs as well as in reference to the size of bluff retention devices on the beach • Delete a requirement to prove that it is not feasible to move the building footprint and foundation inland when mid or upper bluff repairs are made. • If a home is damaged by disaster and meets certain criteria, the homeowner has the same rights to blufftop retention devices as the destroyed structure. • Allow use of mitigation fees for restoring sand as well as improving public beach access. • Interior non-bearing walls should not be include in the definition of a “minor addition” that permits changes to only 50 percent or less of a structure. • Change “geological setback line” language. • Delete a provision that would make a permit for upper bluff protection valid for only 20 years. • Change language regarding when the permit takes effect for construction of a beach seawall or seacave/ notch infills. the document they’ve been working on for more than a decade. Emphasizing the rules they say would constitute “a taking” of private property along the coastal blufftops, they contend the document subverts the California Coastal Act, takes away local control and threatens local tax revenues. One resident, Daniel Powell, told the council that the alternate plan “gutted our local effort” and asked them what would happen to the city’s tax revenues when the homes are gone. “You must not let the Coastal Commission push you around,” he said. “Tell the Coastal Commission to

go pound sand.” The other side – the blue-shirted “Dude, Where’s My Beach” crowd supported by the Surfrider Foundation — wanted the document approved, saying they believe the changes worked out over the past decade are in the best interests of people who use the beach and support the local economy. Jaffee told the council it was important to approve the plan so homeowners outside the bluff zone could stop having to go through both the city and coastal commission to get permits. He also said approval would mean a fee structure would be set for seawall mitigation

fees that could be used for sand and access improvements. At this point, they are only required to pay a deposit but not a fee. He and Julia Chun urged the council to adopt the plan and seek modifications as amendments. The council once thought the matter had been resolved when they approved a plan in June 2011. But when the California Coastal Commission returned with a list of 143 modifications in September 2011 and another 10 in March 2012, tempers flared again. After the Coastal Commission rejected the city’s proposal in March, the blufftop homeowners group and an individual homeowner, Joseph S. Steinberg, sued the Coastal Commission. If the council had approved the document on Tuesday, attorney Marco Gonzalez of the Coastal Environmental Rights Coalition warned them the city would be added to the filing. Because of the lawsuit, Solana Beach officials received an extension so they could try and reach compromises with the commission’s staff. Since then, the BCC and the condominium owners of South Sierra Avenue — representing a total of 893 condominium units – in June submitted a list of 18 items and suggested modifications. On Sept. 21, City Manager Dave Ott and several other city staff members met with Coastal Commission staff to go over the sugges-

tions. “There was movement by Coastal Commission staff,” he told the council as he shared details on some of the talks. After each side was given 25 minutes to present their arguments and another five minutes for rebuttal, council members debated whether continuing to work with the commission staff was worth the effort. In the end, on the split vote, they agreed they would try. Solana Beach Deputy Mayor Dave Roberts also voted for the extension, noting that if the plan was rejected property owners would be left in limbo and not be able to process any permits while a new document was developed. Councilman Tom Campbell, who voted against the motion along with Mayor Joe Kellejian, reiterated a comment by one of the BBC speakers who had noted “we’re 95 percent of the way there” but added there are “some things I cannot support.” He also said he wanted to end meetings of the ad hoc committee working on the LUP, adding he would resign his spot if it continued. Nichols volunteered to take his spot. Kellejian and Campbell also expressed distrust in the Coastal Commissioners. Having represented Solana Beach on numerous coastal committees through the years, the mayor said, “I don’t have confidence that we will get to an end where we would like to be.”

SIGN continued from page 1

a property contains, however, total signage can’t exceed 6 square feet on commercial properties or 5.5 square feet on residential properties. That could mean one large sign or a number of smaller ones. Malik said there is a misconception that if a property owner’s landscaping extends to the street, then they own it. However, the city’s right of way is 6 to 12 feet from the curb inward to the property. “We don’t go around and measure, but we try to give a guideline,” she said, adding that the guideline is in place to prevent signs from distracting drivers or causing danger to pedestrians, such as those walking dogs on leashes that might get tangled with the signs. City code also states all signs much be immediately discarded after the election. In the case that a sign is in violation, the city would pick up the sign and hold it at City Hall. But Malik said the city “doesn’t take a sign unless it’s grossly in the public right of way.” For questions or to report a possible violation, call code enforcement at (858) 755-9313.

when they came back the signs were gone.” Hershell Price, of the opposition group Save Olde Del Mar, said about a dozen signs have gone missing from their side. He said he reached out to representatives from FOR Del Mar’s Future after finding out about the thefts, and found out the other side was battling the same issue. “I don’t think anyone working directly on a campaign would do this,” he said. “It’s not an ethical thing to do, and I just don’t think anyone on our side or their side would do it.” Neither side has reported any thefts to authorities, and Malik called the string of incidents a “civil issue between neighbors.” “I’m not sure if police would respond to cardboard signs being taken,” she said. The city, however, has its eye on the signs because they must be in compliance with the law. City code states political signs must be placed on private property and have approval of the property’s owner. There’s no limit on the number of signs

Two local scientists predicted to win Nobel Prize

Erkki Ruoslahti of the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute “Our Citation Laureate selection process operates much like the Nobel Foundation’s selection process,” Thomson Reuters citation analyst David Pendlebury said in the release. “We recognize fundamental discoveries and identify the most important contributors to these discoveries. Our Citation Laureates have made such important contributions to science that we believe them to be peers of the Nobel Prize winners in every way; they simply have yet to win.” In 2011, Thompson Re-

uters correctly predicted nine of the winners. Hunter was suggested because of his research in cell signaling and control. His 40 years of research in how cancer cells work has lead to the development and approval of over 10 cancer treatment drugs. In researching the mechanisms of cancer and tumors, Hunter and his team discovered what he refers to as a switch. This switch, when turned on, tells cells when to grow and divide. “What we found was,

cancer viruses use this switch as one of the ways in which they cause the cancer cells to proliferate in an uncontrolled manner,” Hunter explained. He also said normal healthy cells can turn the switch on and off. “They turn it on when they want to grow and divide and turn it off again. What these cancer viruses were able to do were to turn the switch on permanently, so they’re always dividing,” he said. The medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration over the last 10 years target the individual enzymes that carry this switch throughout the body. “These drugs are part of the arsenal one can use in treating cancer,” Hunter said. From here, Hunter said, he and his team are, “still trying to understand how cancer cells are different from normal cells, to learn what their vulnerabilities are, what one might target in developing yet further cancer drugs.” While humbly doubtful that he will win the

Tony R. Hunter of the Salk Institute of Biological Studies Prize, he said he is very excited and felt privileged to be suggested. Ruoslahti is also being predicted for his cancer research at the cellular level. “Inspired by ideas put forward by my supervisor and other professors at Caltech – where I worked as an aspiring researcher – I set out to discover the factors that cells use to attach them to their surrounding tissue, keeping them where they’re supposed to be. I felt that breakdown of this

glue was likely to allow cancer cells to migrate [and] metastasize to distant sites in the body,” he said. After 20 years of research, the validity of this theory was proven, and has led to the development of a synthetic compound that block or encourage cell attachment. “Applications of these discoveries range from keeping clogged arteries open to getting artificial organs to integrate with living cells to delivering drugs to a site of disease like a guided missile,” Ruoslahti said. He added, “I am excited about the newest applications, [such as] the guided missile delivery of drugs. Some of this is in clinical trials for the treatment and diagnosis of cancers.” Ruoslahti also said there are more being studied on animals that should soon enter into clinical trials. In addition to continuing cancer research, Ruoslahti and his team are using similar technology to improve treatments of heart attacks, strokes and tissue injuries.

BY ASHLEY MACKIN For the past 11 years, Thomson Reuters has issued predictions as to who will win the Nobel Prize in science categories, as “Citation Laureates.” This year, two La Jolla-based scientists are included on that list in the “Medicine” category. Tony R. Hunter of the Salk Institute of Biological Studies and Erkki Ruoslahti of the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute are predicted to win for their cellular-based medical research. The “official” Nobel announcement regarding the winner will be Oct. 8 at 11:30 a.m. from Stockholm, Sweden. A press release issued by Thompson Reuters explained the process by which the scientists are chosen. “Based on a thorough review of citations to their research, the company names these high-impact researchers as Thomson Reuters Citation Laureates and predicts them to be Nobel Prize winners, either this year or in the future,” the release stated.

Del Mar Foundation’s free tax and estate planning seminar series is Oct. 10 Expert Cory C. Grant, Esq. answers preliminary questions If tax changes and estate planning leave you searching for answers, join the Del Mar Foundation on Oct. 10 for the first of a four-part seminar series titled “Frequently Asked Questions and Answers to Tax and Estate Planning Changes.” The Oct. 10 seminar will be held at the Del Mar Powerhouse Community Center from 4-6 p.m. Handouts will be provided to all participants and light refreshments will be served. Cory C. Grant, J.D., founder and shareholder of Grant, Hinkle and Jacobs, Inc., a Del Mar Foundation board member, and a resident of Del Mar will lead the first seminar. Grant received his B.A. from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and his Juris Doctor from California Western School of Law in San Diego. For more than 20 years, Grant has developed his expertise in the design and implementation of advanced estate plans, wealth protection techniques, and busiCory C. Grant, J.D. ness succession strategies for families and business owners. A dynamic and entertaining speaker, Grant has over 20 years of experience helping families and business owners around the country with estate and business succession planning. This four-part series will be offered quarterly with a variety of speakers and topics addressing tax and estate planning issues. Participant questions are welcome. Come to one or come to all four sessions. Reservations are required to ensure that sufficient space and materials are on hand. To reserve your seat for Oct. 10, contact the Del Mar Foundation at 858-635-1363 or by email at No personal information will be gathered at the presentations. Below is a Q& A with Grant: BY CORY C. GRANT, ESQ. 1.) What is the most important thing for people to know regarding estate planning? Estate planning is important for everyone. Anyone who owns property and has assets should be concerned about the distribution to children, a spouse, other relatives or charities. A good estate plan addresses this and provides for an orderly distribution of assets. A comprehensive estate plan includes health care decisions, guardian issues for minors and powers of attorney so your trusted power holder can carry out your wishes should you become incapacitated. Most importantly, estate planning is a dynamic process and should be reviewed and revised from time to time to ensure that it is still current and relevant. 2.) What is the most common mistake people make in estate planning? The biggest mistake made by people is not having their advisory team communicate

and collaborate regularly. Best results occur when the trust attorney, CPA, investment advisor and insurance professional all are in communication and understand the goals and objectives of the client. 3.) When should people create a properly executed will and why? Wills are necessary to ensure that assets are distributed based on the terms and conditions that the client sets forth. Anyone over the age of 18 should have a will and powers of attorney for health care and asset decisions. Anyone with a home and/or children should also consider a revocable trust to avoid the time, cost and publicity of probate proceedings. 4.) What are the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to life insurance? Every life insurance policy should be reviewed from time to time to ensure that it is still appropriate and meeting the objectives for which it was purchased. A lot of folks purchase a policy and then forget about it. Another common mistake is having the pol-

icy incorrectly owned. For example, one might forget to change beneficiaries after a divorce or break up of a business. Also, we see lots of families use life insurance to provide liquidity to pay estate taxes. In those situations it is critical that the policy be owned by an entity outside of the estate of the senior generation to avoid extra taxes. Improper ownership may lead to unintended consequences. 5.) Why would you recommend that people attend this seminar series? The Del Mar Foundation is offering this four-part series as a community service so that local residents will have the opportunity to listen to the information in an impartial setting, ask questions of a group of professionals, and bring materials home to study and discuss with family. While all of the speakers in the series have successful businesses, there are strict prohibitions against soliciting, so the environment will be an open arena to ask questions and have them answered.

Local resident’s new novel combines high seas adventure with legal drama BY JOE TASH V. Frank Asaro brings together many of his areas of expertise — philosopher, lawyer, inventor and composer — in his new novel, “The Tortoise Shell Code.” Asaro, a Carmel Valley resident, wanted to tell the dramatic story of the sinking of V. Frank Asaro a commercial fishing boat off the coast of Central America, while putting forward his theory of “co-opetition,” in which both cooperation and competition are essential elements of every type of human endeavor. “I wanted to promote the theory and I thought the novel was a good way to do it,” said Asaro, who practiced law for nearly 50 years in the areas of real estate, business and admiralty — or maritime — law. He is now “90 percent retired,” taking on a small amount of legal work but focusing on writing and other business ventures. Last year, he published his first book, a non-fiction work that lays out his theory, called, “Universal Co-Opetition: Nature’s Fusion of Cooperation and Competition.” Both the non-fiction book and the nov-

SCHEME Continued from page 4 were underfunded, that investors’ money was being used on other projects, and the returns they promised were unsupportable and could not be achieved. Catledge and Elliott collected approximately $91.3 million from investors. Of that amount, they allegedly spent approximately $13.4 million on renovations of

el were published by Del Mar-based Bettie Youngs Books, and can be ordered through or The novel is part high seas adventure and part legal drama, as the main character, an attorney, seeks to disentangle himself from the case, which hinges on the cause of the tuna boat’s sinking, and the determination of who was responsible. Asaro has also woven in threads of revolution and international diplomacy, as rebel fighters use the tuna boat to smuggle weapons, and later as parties to the conflict meet in secret in an effort to settle their dispute. “The book is truly exciting,” said Youngs, noting that a big market exists for sea-related stories. Currently, she said, her team is getting the word out about the novel, and also seeking to interest foreign markets. Asaro’s first book has already been translated into two languages and more translations are expected. Even during his legal career, Asaro said, he enjoyed writing scraps of stories and novels. “I’d do it to get my mind off the pressures of litigation,” he said. If he woke up in the middle of the night thinking of the legal case he was working on, he would pick up a pen and pad to relax his mind. In fact, pieces of “The Tortoise Shell Code” were written over

the Juan Dolio resort and diverted approximately $68.6 million to commissions and other payments. The renovations were never completed. Catledge is scheduled to be arraigned on Oct. 5, 2012, before Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero in San Francisco. A court date has not yet been set for Elliott. The maximum statutory penalty for each count of conspiracy to commit mail

the past 25 years, he said. His theory of co-opetition also developed over many years, beginning several decades ago. While the two ideas might seem to be diametrically opposed, he said, they actually work together in many areas, from music to economics to politics to chemistry. Rather than a Darwinian competition for survival, he said, capitalism itself is a merger of both competition and cooperation. The key is to strike a balance between the two that results in a balance that works for all parties. As an example, he cited an outrigger canoe, which uses a small float attached to the canoe by a cross-bar. If the outrigger is too small, the canoe is unstable and could tip over. If it’s too large, he said, it will drag down the canoe and impede its progress through the water. “The system I want to see in the economy and politics is an ordered liberty, a moral liberty,” he said. “This concept is an antidote for polarization that allows reason to

get into the argument so it’s not just based on emotion.” He equates cooperation with order — too much cooperation, he said, results in a dictatorship or police state. Competition is akin to chaos, and too much of that results in anarchy, or no government at all, he said. “You’ve got to find the synthesis that works really well,” said Asaro, who put himself just to the right of center on the political spectrum. Asaro has a couple of other novels and screenplays in mind, some of which reside in file drawers, waiting to be dusted off. He’s also a jazz drummer and composer, and has put out a CD of his compositions with noted San Diego jazz guitarist Peter Sprague. In addition, he holds several patents for his inventions, which include a device that allows eye-drops to be administered with one hand. “He’s just a very talented person,” said publisher Bettie Youngs.

Director of the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA), the author proposes the following: “Communities are known by the schools they keep” and goes on to ask if “local governing boards, your local, state and federal elected officials, your real estate officials, your local business leaders, and your local faith community are paying attention to the impact of funding on their schools and their communities.” I wonder if our community members and parents are aware of the changes underfoot in the Del Mar Union School District. Mr. Bagin goes on to surmise that even if people know the fiscal situation of their school district and how it will affect them and their families they may not have an idea of the impact to the well-being of their community. In the Del Mar Union School District, our schools have been financially responsible enough to avoid deficit spending until last year, when the cumulative effects of “fair share” payments finally caught up with us. Now, the district is facing further deficit spending and its reserves are dwindling. There will be changes to DMUSD that have long plagued the other school districts around us. Mr Bagin goes on to suggest that lasting damage may be felt by our communities if we dismantle early educational programs that have made our schools leaders in the County: “As our schools begin to decline because of inadequate state and local funding, we may be on the cusp of seeing that negative phrase come to life: There goes the neighborhood.” The decline in DMUSD hasn’t hap-

Proposition CC can help remediate the budget losses of our district and provide some relief from many of the cuts to the classroom. “If schools begin to slip in achievement, facility upkeep, and overall characteristics that make schools effective, enrollment will decline, parents will seek alternatives, real estate values will sink, businesses will not move into or will even move out of your community,” says Bagin. “You will be left with a community that it is just a shadow of itself. “ That sounds a bit much for renowned Del Mar. It will always have beaches and horseracing to attract vacationers. But people move here because of the schools. Del Mar and Carmel Valley are known for their schools. “Who Is for Kids? Who Is Just Kidding?” Mr. Bagin uses an old campaign slogan, but it is poignant even today. If you want to know who is for kids, look to the DMUSD Board of Trustees, superintendent, principals and staff. These professionals put together a proposed solution to what ails us. Its Proposition CC. Our school district is for kids! Our local educators chose this profession because they wanted to make a difference in educating children, and Prop CC is part of the package of making that a reality in California’s troubling economic climate. If you, too, are for kids, then please support them by voting “Yes” on CC. Janet Handzel Parent, community member Quality Schools for Del Mar, Yes on CC

The French Connection EMERSON’S CORNER Tr a v eling in France always gives me perspective on what we are doing on this side of the BUD EMERSON p o n d . Del Mar America looks like a very appealing teenager full of promise, energy, creativity, yet still unpredictable in making smart decisions. Driving through numerous small villages, some smaller and some larger than Del Mar, I was struck by France’s very clear understanding of the relationship between cars and pedestrians. So many village centers are planned to give priority to walkers over cars. Cars are the way one gets to the town, but once there they give way to bicyclers, pedestrians, and outdoor cafes. Drivers know where they rank and rarely show frustration with their secondclass status. This stands in stark contrast to so many California towns, including Del Mar, where the car is king.

Getting through French towns smoothly by car is facilitated by numerous roundabouts which keep you moving at a steady rate, but at a speed that is safe. Rarely does one see a stop light and only occasionally a stop sign. In two weeks of driving I must have navigated literally hundreds of roundabouts, mostly small in circumference and most attractively landscaped. Driver behavior is very conditioned to observing the incredible efficiency of the right-of-way protocols. Pedestrian-activated crosswalks on both sides assure walkers convenient and safe ways to pass over the street. I did not experience any back-up at these intersections, even at busy commuting hours. Of course, their excellent freeway system is available for those who want to travel faster and farther. Town centers in small French villages are usually a mix of one- and two-story buildings, narrow streets, with a variety of residentserving businesses and small offices. Lots of craftsmen are nestled in small spaces. Small residential units pepper the center, some on top, some in the rear. Always there are small cafes with outdoor movable chairs and

tables that come in late at night. Lush landscaping frames town centers with benches for weary walkers. I see evidence of a strong preservation ethic, especially for centuries-old buildings. Quite a few villages have installed bollards, short electronic posts that can be activated to control when cars can have access to streets at certain times of the day. Parking is usually a challenge, sometimes with nearby lots or structures, sometimes with flexible parking hours at busy times or on market days. Bus routes enable some shoppers to get in and out of town with their purchases. There is much to be learned from these villages of our European cousins for shaping our town’s future. However, when I review the vision statements in our 1976 Community Plan I wonder if someone else wrote a column like this in 1975. (By the way, on Oct. 7 Camino Del Mar will be reduced to two lanes for an Art and Taste of Del Mar celebration, one of my favorite days because we can experience how Del Mar could be if we were truly a walkable town.)

worse; Vote ‘No’ on Prop J

Are you kidding me? I cannot believe that reducing Camino Del Mar to one lane in each direction is going to reduce traffic. It is implausible that the expert traffic engineers are correct in their report. Maybe the traffic count studies are at inappropriate times and the data is flawed. Maybe their assumptions about the volume of eastbound and westbound traffic and pedestrian crossings (or something else) are erroneous and lead to flawed conclusions. I have sat in traffic on northbound 101 where two lanes of traffic are reduced to one and trying to get through the signal at Carmel Valley Road — the wait can be as long as 45 minutes. I saw what happened when the City Council experimented with reducing southbound Camino Del Mar to one lane a few years ago. We all know we already have a problem with spillover traffic onto residential streets. It is inexcusable to make it worse. Vote “No” on Proposition J. Or at least, act grown up enough to stop stealing the yard signs urging a “No” vote. Don Ellis Del Mar

Prop J: Who will pay? The exact amount may be in doubt but everyone agrees Proposition J will cost Del Mar millions of dollars. Who will pay? Proponents list vague and unspecified federal and state grants and increased sales and property taxes from revitalization. That pie-in-the-sky doublespeak sounds just like the way San Diego tried to finance its recent improvements. Or not. How about a specific finance plan from the pro-J forces? Peter Kaye, Del Mar

Bully’s Roundabouts and Bird Rock For years Del Mar was known as “Gasoline Alley” with nine service stations. Camino Del Mar (101) was termed “Bloody Alley” due to the frequent accidents. Then in 1967 when I-5 highway bypassed Del Mar, most businesses failed and Del Mar’s economic base virtually evaporated. What was needed to attract new shops and businesses to Del Mar was a vision of what Del Mar could be without I-5 traffic. To do so, a local group of residents and business interest prepared a brochure titled “Why Del Mar”. The report stated “Why” indeed should a city whose business community had deteriorated after being bypassed by I-5, emerge as potentially one of the finest semi-rural, walkable communities on the California Coast? That vision of what Del Mar could be attracted more than a dozen new businesses. A couple of those businesses were Virginia Igonda’s Earthsong Bookstore and George Bullington’s “Bully’s” restaurant. At the time “Bully’s” was located in La Jolla on a fourlane artery in Bird Rock, often termed “Baja La Jolla” because of its unattractiveness. I had not been back to Bird Rock since convincing “Bully’s” to come to Del Mar. However, with all the concerns about roundabouts, I felt it important to do so. So I visited Bird Rock and was impressed. Instead of the four-lane raceway for traffic I found a quite beautifully landscaped area with flourishing unique neighborhood shops. I noted how the single lanes each way allowed more traffic to flow through town at a slower pace significantly enhancing the environment, the air quality and the overall pedestrian atmosphere. I talked to over a dozen businesses and residents in Bird Rock and asked a simple question. “What is your opinion of the roundabouts and reduction from four lanes to two lanes?” I was amazed by the absolute enthusiastic replies. All stated “I love it.” — “It’s the best thing that ever happened.” — “It’s great and so much safer for pedestrians.” — “The traffic used to fly by and never know my business was here, now we have a beautiful walkable community and my business is flourishing.” — “It moves traffic far more efficiently and reduces car emissions without all the stops and idling cars.” The positive comments were virtually endless. There is so much false and misleading information about roundabouts. If you have any doubts about how positive the roundabouts can be in helping Del Mar finally achieve the 1975 plan goal, I would urge you to go visit Bird Rock to see the positive impact and vote “Yes” on Prop J.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

Paralysis is not a good legacy — 10 reasons to vote for the Village Specific Plan Here are 10 reasons why I am voting for the Village Specific Plan. 1. Good Plan: The Village Specific Plan (VSP) is a well-constructed, thoughtful plan that addresses how the Del Mar Village will be developed over the next 30 years. It describes specific ways that buildings can be improved, parking spaces increased, pedestrian walkways enhanced, and traffic congestion reduced. 2. Real Change is Needed: Since the approval of Del Mar’s Community Plan in 1976, our City has been discussing and studying how to implement the goals of the Community Plan. But after 36 years of talking and over 10 major studies, the City has not implemented any zoning changes that would encourage a pedestrian friendly village environment. Our zoning and parking requirements are throw-backs to the 1960s. This is the first real effort to implement changes to zoning, parking, and traffic that will implement the goals of our Community Plan. 3. Competition: A great concern I have is that our small city must not only be a wonderful place to live for residents, but we must attract people to eat at our restaurants, stay in our hotels, and buy goods and services from our businesses. We cannot survive as a city unless our sales tax revenues and hotel tax revenues keep pace with the growth in San Diego’s economy. Encinitas, Solana Beach, Flower Hill, Del Mar Highlands, Del Mar Heights and One Paseo are all investing and improving their shopping areas to stay vibrant and financially sound. If we don’t encourage improvements in our Village, we will not only lose financially, but we will be unable to attract the type of businesses that residents want in the Village. 4. Community Input: The Plan incorporates the basic goals of the Community Plan of 1976, including Goal #2 “to minimize the impact of the automobile on the character of Del Mar”, and Goal #3 “to preserve the residential character and small town atmosphere.” It addresses our desire for pedestrian friendly sidewalks, better traffic flow, improved safety , and reduced pollution. In addition, the Plan has received a great deal of community input and modifications. Since April of 2011, 90 meetings and workshops have been held to gather public priorities and improvements for the Plan. Over 50 substantial changes were made to the Plan based on public review and comments. These changes included reducing the amount of square footage that can be developed, reducing the allowed height of buildings along Camino Del Mar, increasing credits for building residential units downtown, shortening the schedule for building a parking structure downtown, reducing the number of roundabout proposed for Camino Del Mar, and making sure that the Design Review Board, Planning Commission and City Council play an expanded role in reviewing development projects. 5. Clear Goals: The VSP has very specific measurements that are used to track how the implementation is proceeding. The Plan sets out measurable goals for Village improvement at 10, 20, and 30 year intervals. These measures include pedestrian and bicycle safety, vehicular circulation, improved parking, land usage, satisfaction of residents, economic vitality, and sustainable environments. These goals will keep city government focused on achieving the correct results and adjusting the Plan if any negative impacts occur.

6. Safeguards: One of the key changes made to the Plan, based on community input, was the addition of “thresholds” or “safety milestones” that would trigger a review of the Plan to make sure it is meeting the community’s goals and that there are not any unintended consequences of the VSP improvements. An example of a “threshold” is for heights of buildings along the west side of Camino Del Mar. Every 10 years, or whenever 50 percent of a block reaches 26 feet, whichever comes first, the VSP will be reviewed by City Council to make sure the community is still positive about the new development. If not, the height restrictions can be changed. 7. Residential Housing: The 1976 Community Plan calls for a mixed use of commercial building and housing in the downtown. We have never been able to provide mixed-use housing in our City. This is the one opportunity we have to encourage developers to include housing in their plans for the future and allow the City to meet its affordable housing goals. 8. Roundabouts: Since coming on the Council I have been studying roundabouts and whether they would be a good thing for our community. After traveling to other cities and observing roundabout installations, I am convinced that roundabouts would be far better than what we have today. They will allow traffic to flow smoothly through our downtown while reducing noise, and reducing car/pedestrian accidents. Also, a key point to consider is that traffic will be increasing as population increases. Camino Del Mar will be jammed and at a standstill with our current stop signs and stop lights. Other than roundabouts, the only other solution is traffic signals from one end of town to the other. That is not the “village atmosphere” called for in our Community Plan. 9. Future Generations: Del Mar has a median age of 48.6 years. We anticipate that the Village Specific Plan will take 20 to 30 years to be fully implemented. In that period, half of us will be gone. We owe it to the future generations to plan a better future for the Village of Del Mar; to take what we enjoy today, and make sure it is even better tomorrow. If we stop making Del Mar a better place, we will stagnate and decline as a community. 10. Paralysis: My overlying fear is the baby / bathwater scenario. The VSP is a complex plan balancing the goals of pedestrian access, business vitality, parking, traffic and the environment. At the core, it is a very good roadmap for the future. Will people recognize the basic value of the Plan, even though they might have a concern about one feature of the Plan? And after all this effort, all of this community involvement and outreach, if this Plan is rejected, it will be much harder for our City to move forward on improving any public areas in the future …. City Hall, the Shores Property, the south end of CDM. Property owners will not be motivated to invest in their properties. Our paralysis as a City will continue another 20 years, until our generation has passed on. Paralysis is not a good legacy. If you approve the Village Specific Plan, we can move forward, confident that the development that takes place in the next 20 years will truly reflect the community’s priorities identified first back in 1976 and reaffirmed again this past year. Terry Sinnott Deputy Mayor


Vote ‘Yes’ on Prop J for the benefit of our children’s future Response to Lani Sipe Curtis’ letter to the editor dated Sept. 20, 2012 Lani speaks for young families raising kids in Del Mar when she states “as young moms, we are busy changing diapers, carpooling kids or organizing snack duty, so we are not always heard on political matters.” However, Lani goes on to say “we care deeply about the future because this is the town our kids are going to experience, interact with and grow from.” I too grew up in Del Mar. My son and I both work in Del Mar and agree, as most young families do, that Del Mar desperately needs revitalization. It is long overdue and Prop J is the best way to achieve what was envisioned in the 1975 Community Plan. A beautifully landscaped, walkable village with tree-lined streets, wider sidewalks, outdoor dining, improved traffic flow, added parking, new areas and places for families to gather as the social and cultural center of our community. Prop J will make this environment possible, which will enhance property values, and attract new businesses to better serve our families, plus revitalize the city’s economic base. Without the passing of Prop J, it’s simply further decay. I would encourage all you families to vote “Yes” on Prop J for the good of their children’s future. KC Vafiadis

Why I am voting ‘Yes’ on Prop J BY TENSIA MORIEL TREJO “THE TRUE DEL MARIAN” I address this to you, the elderly people in Del Mar Village, who have been told why you should vote “No” on Prop J with scare tactics. Read my story and decide for yourself, do you believe in “Imaginary-Gates” in Del Mar? I was born in Del Mar, 85 years ago, Sept. 9, 1927. My parents came to Del Mar for a visit in May of 1919 with my two older brothers. Mom fell in love with Del Mar and on Aug. 19, 1919 they moved to the village. They rented a house, Dad went to work in construction, Mom gave birth to four additional children, including me. My mother’s dream was to buy a lot and have her brother build their house. Even with six kids, my mother found time to earn extra money by catering Mexican food for the parties held by the very wealthy. She also gave sewing classes to young girls and did seamstress work. All of this work was so that my mother could have her dream lot in Del Mar. I was 3 years old when my mother had the money she needed to buy a lot in Del Mar. Dad went to buy a lot but came home with only a paper for a lot in rural Del Mar, Eden Gardens. This was not my mother’s dream. I remember Mom getting very angry at Dad and Dad trying to explain to her that Mexican and Jewish people could rent but not own property in Del Mar. This was the first “Imaginary-Gates” at either end of Del Mar. My mother called this racist. My parents were educated people, who had to flee their country because Dad was of French descent. My family, including seven children, never stopped coming to visit friends in Del Mar. We simply ignored the racial signs that were posted by the Del Mar pier, the plunge, and in some parts of the beach. The racist practice stopped in

1935. When, Jenary, my husband to be, asked me to marry him in 1947, I had one condition: “We must buy a lot in Del Mar.” Nobody keeps me out of the town where I was born. For some time now, we have had a group in Del Mar that feel that since they are now in Del Mar, it is time to Tensia Trejo re-install the “ImaginaryGates” at either end of town. This same group opposed the development of the Del Mar Plaza and the L’Auberge Hotel. They forced the gas station to leave town and they stopped the building of the “Garden Project” in its lot with their 60-plus meetings. I have yet to hear the young people oppose Proposition J. And after all, this will be their city long after we elders are gone. Sure, there will be bumps in the road, but it will be for the future residents, including my son Jeff, to see that our city stays on the right course. So seniors, don’t do it for yourself, do it for the next generations. Vote “Yes” on Prop J. Del Mar was founded to always be a special place without any gates, a place to thrive and serve all generations.

Meet the Solana Beach City Council candidates Six candidates are vying for three open Solana Beach City Council seats in the Nov. 6 election. Candidates include Vickie Driver, Paul Frankel, Lesa Heebner (incumbent), Daniel Powell, Peter Zahn and Dave Zito. On this page are

brief biographies, contact information and the candidates’ answers to a question presented by this newspaper. For more answers to questions presented to the candidates, visit www. (enter the candidate’s name in the search

One big challenge for the city is traffic circulation. We need neighborhood traffic calming north and south of Lomas Santa Fe, not just on the 101. Better circulation near all our schools should be reflected in the General Plan. Currently, twice a day, hundreds of cars drive in and out of the neighborhoods adjacent to the multiple schools we have in town. This puts wear and tear on the roads (think pot holes) and adds pollution to our air quality. Another challenge is to increase our city revenues by building a vibrant business district on both the west and the east side of the highway, while still maintaining the charm of Solana Beach that drew us all to live here.

These councils brought train service to the city and associated infrastructure necessary for the Cedros District to grow. The resulting jump in tax revenues (the “Cedros Dividend”) made Solana Beach the fiscal envy of its neighbors. However, the current council majority has spent most of our Cedros Dividend without investing to help grow our tax base as previous councils did, straining our city finances. • Property Rights: Our “over the counter” planning approval process was a simple, efficient and resident-friendly way to get construction permits approved. That all changed in 2011 when the current council passed a revision to the permitting process by requiring a mandatory public design review for all new projects in excess of 500 square feet, thereby giving themselves the final say on what nearly every residential and commercial construction project should look like including color, theme, shape, size and design. • Ignored Constituencies: Our largest constituency – families with school-age children – is not a priority for this council. Each year, SB Soccer and Little League have been able to count on our fiscally-challenged school district to be the de-facto “parks and rec department,” providing staff support, playgrounds and fields, but they can’t count on our city. It’s a shame that every city in the county boasts a parks and recreational field program that is larger than ours here in Solana Beach! In addition, despite the fact that most of our city residents own a dog, there is not one place in Solana Beach where dog lovers can legally take their dogs “off leash” to run and play freely.

Q: What do you think are the biggest issues facing Solana Beach? Our biggest challenge is to protect our quality of life while our commercial sector grows. For example, we have a recently announced American Assets project on Highway 101 that is likely to trigger significant development along the 101 corridor. Other issues include the coming update to Solana Beach’s General Plan, structural issues on our oceanfront, affordable housing projects, road construction on Highway 101, freeway expansion, tightening government budgets, pressures on city services, public safety and the management of our local government.

Our city is facing major financial challenges, and the only response by our City Council is to raise taxes and fees. It’s become a vicious cycle where hurting businesses are further burdened, and instead of building our economy and our tax base, we continue to have budget deficits and declining services to city residents.

Solana Beach is well run and fiscally sound, however, we continue to face pressures due to the poor economy and State money grabs which require tight fiscal control and efficient operation. This combined with the elimination of our Redevelopment Agency makes it more difficult to continue doing the regular maintenance and capital improvement projects that our residents have become used to seeing, such as the Fletcher Cove redesign, Linear Park improvements, and the recently started Highway 101 improvements. It’s also important that we complete our LUP (Land Use Plan) and have it approved by the Coastal Commission. Currently, any project in Solana Beach which requires permit approval has to go through a two-step process; approvals are required by the City of Solana Beach as well as the California Coastal Commission for every project. Failure in either forum starts the two-step process all over again which creates significant inefficiency and waste for both our residents and the City staff. Completion of the LUP will also allow us to free up the seawall mitigation funds to improve public beach access and get more sand on our beaches. Traffic and pedestrian safety is another growing concern in Solana Beach. Given the absence of school busing, adjacent fairgrounds use, and high speeds on our major roads we are faced with a troubling mix of frequent poor traffic conditions. This is sometimes further complicated by the lack of pedestrian- or bicycle-friendly situations on our roads which encourages even more people to remain in their cars.

Mavericks beat Torrey Pines Jr. Midgets in close game BY BILL BUTLER Torrey Pines lost a close, competitive game recently to the La Costa Canyon Mavericks. LCC started the game by moving the ball downfield slowly picking up tough 1st downs primarily with the running game. TP stopped them short of a touchdown on one drove, but LCC finally pushed the ball into the end zone and took an early 8-0 lead. LCC picked off the TP Zac Friedland intercepts an LCC pass quarterback at their own 12yard line in the 3rd quarter. They scored on the next play on a long run to make the score 16-0 after the two-point kick. TP came roaring back in the 4th quarter. Two complete passes, one from Conner Whitton to Scotty Gange at the 19 and another to Kevin Misak at the 5, put the Falcons in scoring position. However, a QB sack moved the ball back to the 10. TP was unable to run the ball in, and on 4th down, Whitton hit Gange in the left end of the end zone for the TD. The LCC defender got a hand on the ball but Gange was able to make the grab for the touchdown. Pike’s kick was good, and the score was 16-8. The Falcons would have a chance to tie the score late. The Falcon defense forced a 4th and long, and LCC chose to punt. TP put on a good rush, and a blocker moved into the path of the punt, resulting in a blocked punt recovered by TP at the 26. On 4th down, Whitton rolled right to get away from the pass rush and threw to Misak near the goal line. Misak made a leaping attempt for the ball and got his hands on it momentarily but was unable to haul it in. An LCC defender caught the deflected pass, and LCC ran out the clock. These two teams will likely meet again in post-season play, which starts Oct. 13. The Falcons will have a chance in the tournament to prove they are the best team in the Palomar Conference and worthy of representing the league in regional and WESCON competition.

Crazy 8’s in Carmel Valley Carmel Valley – Ed Burke Stadium. The Temecula Bear’s Quarterback will be forgiven if he wakes up in a cold sweat tonight, muttering about “the number 8.” 8 was not his lucky number. 8 is the jersey number of Defensive End Jacob Schneider. 88 is the number on Defensive End Brian Minarik’s uniform. The Torrey Pines Pop Warner Falcon Defenders with 8’s on their backs harassed the Bear QB from the first series to the last. They combined to sack him twice on (L-R) QB Tyler Lytle #5, LB and Safety Caden Wolfson #21, LB consecutive series in and RB Adam Eastwood 33 and OT and DT Graham the first quarter, forc- Valentine 56. ing Temecula punts. In the second quarter, Minarik sacked the quarterback, causing a fumble. Number 8 Schneider recovered. And so it went Saturday evening, Sept. 29, as Head Coach Mike Lytle’s Falcons shut out a Temecula squad that had scored over 40 points in its last game. The Torrey Pines Midget Falcons went to 6-0, as they overwhelmed Temecula, 27-0. The Falcons have outscored opponents, 190-44. They have three consecutive shut-outs. And, no wonder. With the second half winding down, #88 Minarik sacked the Temecula QB on first down, and then tackled the ball carrier for a loss on second. Third down was an interception. As the third quarter started, some guys without 8’s on their jerseys (Noah Rubin and Yu Jay Kurosu) helped crush the Bears’ first possession. But, Minarik had another sack in the series. Meanwhile, the hard-running, up-the-gut Falcon offense went all aerial in the game. TP QB Tyler Lytle passed to Ben McCaskill in the flat on the Falcons’ first possession, and McCaskill scooted for 25 yards. After an Adam Eastbrook 5 yard rushing gain, Lytle hit Michael Gadinis on a beautiful 14 yard fade route in the end zone. Ronan Gilliland (long snapper) to Jacob Montes (holder) to Gadinis (kick) and the PAT was good. 8-0 Falcons. In the second quarter, the Birds tried Mo Mirer right, and Mo Mirer left, with Eastbrook leading the sweeps. Mirer gained 16 and 6 yards on the runs. The “Gold O” line of Kyle Hurt (LT), Yu Jay Kurosu (LG), Ronan Gilliland (C), Minarik (RG) and Graham Valentine (RT) was clicking. The next play was McCaskill right for 9 yards, and then Lytle back up-top to Gadinis who caught up to a beautifully thrown 24-yard bomb. Touchdown Falcons! (PAT a tad wide). 14-0. After Tyler Alexander’s downfield coverage on 4th and 11 caused the Bears to turn the ball over on downs, “Red O” took the field. Antoine Lee and Jack Lewis took turns running behind Will Nute (LT), Ryan Dill (LG), Langston Glover-Castro (C), Ryan Robbins (RG) and Andrew Casias (RT). Mo Mirer was taking the snaps, and it was his turn to air-it-out: another deep strike! This one to Tyler Alexander. Mirer ran in the PAT. 21-0, Falcons. After the Crazy 8’s caused and recovered the Bears fumble, Red O went back to ploughing upfield with Lewis and Lee. But, facing a 4th & 5, Lytle, Eastwood and Gold O came back out and connected for the final Falcon TD, 27-0. The second half featured a running clock and a swarming Falcon Defense. Safety Caden Wolfson broke up at least two Temecula deep threats. Red O got plenty of reps, but no more points. With 2:33 remaining in the 4th quarter, and the Bears trying to score on their last possession, the nightmare ocho ocho’s fittingly broke through for a final sack of the Temecula QB. Ocho. Ouch.

WALL continued from page 1 happen and paid for the highest quality procedure to have it happen,” said Vehar. “I hope the community recognizes this didn’t just happen under general maintenance…We all appreciate it.” The Elf privately hired a team of four from the city’s landscaping company to come and work on their off-hours. He paid for their services and purchased the paint from the local Frazee Paint store in Carmel Country Plaza, spending an estimated $20,000 of his own money. He even chipped in for Starbucks coffee and muffins for the crew. The Elf is a local resident who has lived in this area his entire life — first attending R. Roger Rowe School in Rancho Santa Fe, then graduating from Torrey Pines High and Mira Costa College in Encinitas. He started his career on High Bluff Drive and later built a business in Sorrento Valley that he

sold in 2007. “I am a local guy who is now aging a bit and I feel a sense of responsibility to better the community we live in,” said the Elf in an e-mail to Vehar. The Elf said he knows he might not be able to stay anonymous for long but stated he does not need the recognition for the project. “This is simply a gift for the people that make up our community, a sort of silent ‘thank you,’ a way to show that even though we all don’t know each other I respect and am grateful to be part of this group.” At the Sept. 27 Carmel Valley planning board meeting, board member Christian Clews said he hoped the board could recognize the Elf in some way, perhaps with a plaque on the wall. “This is just a heartwarming thing, this was just amazing,” Clews said. “This is just stuff they make movies about and it makes me feel that there’s hope for the human race.”

New medical director of Scripps Radiation Therapy Center focuses on mind, body, spirit BY KATHY DAY As an undergraduate at UCLA, Ray Lin studied psychobiology because it was a little bit neurology, a little bit biology and a little bit psychology. “It combined the mind, body and spirit,” said the radiation oncologist who is the medical director of the new Scripps Radiation Therapy Center and is still focusing on those three elements of life. He specialized in radiation oncology for three main reasons, he said in a recent interview: • “You really get to know your patients. They come in every day for six to seven weeks and you see them every single day,” he said, adding that in other specialties you may see an individual once every six months or even less frequently. • “It’s so high tech … radiation oncologists love their toys.” • And, “I love oncology.” With cancer set to overtake heart disease as the most common cause of death, he said, he wants to be able to help fight “this devastating disease that affects every family in some way.” After graduating from UCLA, he attended Loyola University of Chicago’s Stritch School of Medicine before returning to Southern California where he interned at UCLA and did his residency at Loma Linda University Medical Center. That’s where he stayed until 2001 when he moved to Scripps Clinic/Green Hospital. When he followed his boss at Loma Linda, Huan Jiap, M.D., to Scripps, he began work in brachytherapy – placing radiation inside the body — in cardiovascular disease. His specialties include breast, lung and gas-

And being responsible for the new Radiation Therapy Center, which unites the radiation oncology services for Scripps Green Hospital and Scripps Memorial La Jolla, is another one of those different things he’s tackled. Now that it’s open – the first patients were treated in mid-September, with Memorial’s program set to be fully relocated by this week and Scripps Green’s by late November — he’s responsible for its day-to-day operation. In addition, he oversees administration and is a liaison for the staff, physician and administrators. During the planning stages, he had input on design and functionality and with selecting equipment and quality assurance. “I never knew how to read a blueprint,” Lin said. But since “radiation oncologists think in 3-D terms” and he had a lot of help he made it through, helping out by talking about how patients flowed through the office from check-in to the sizes of the dressing rooms. The process included weekly meetings over the past two years with representatives from the two

programs, including nurses, physicians and the physicists. Through that process, he noted, they selected the best practices and protocols so they could standardize treatments. Patients also had a say in the design through a series of focus groups that helped the team understand what worked for them and what didn’t. “We had to get everybody to work together,” he said, noting Scripps Health’s evolution to “one Scripps with specialty centers” throughout the county. “It’s not cost effective to have radiation oncology at every site; it’s more cost effective to have one great [center] than to have three mediocre [centers].” Located just east of Scripps Clinic/Green Hospital on Torrey Pines Mesa, the $44 million center was set to mark the opening on Oct. 3 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony for community leaders, and a community open house will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 6. The center includes the latest technology, from three new linear accelerators, which will improve precision and shorten treatment times, to a CT simulator with 4-D capability. Lin said the new equipment is not just more precise and faster – a treatment session for pancreatic cancer has been reduced from 30 minutes to just 3 minutes – but also more comfortable for the patient. In addition, the simulator can adjust for a patient’s breathing and can “choreograph” motion, decreasing the impacts on surrounding organs and potential side effects. The measures of success, he said, are that they have “capacity and compassion” as healthcare provid-

‘The Rimers of Eldritch’ comes to Canyon Crest Academy Oct. 11-20 Canyon Crest Academy Envision Theatre will present “The Rimers of Eldritch,” Lanford Wilson’s gripping courtroom drama, from Oct. 11 – 20 at the Proscenium Theater on the CCA campus. The Rimers of Eldritch takes place in the tiny, midwestern town of Eldritch and centers on the mystery of a murder and the trial that follows. This intriguing play, in its simplest portrayal, is about a town and the inhabitants that enter and exit its borders. However, at its core, Rimers is about how lies transform into truth and how we live and breathe these lies and force them into reality, and explores the blurred line between what happens, what we say happens, and what is remembered for years (From left to right) Ben Sutton as to come.

Jane Goodall presides over local benefit, reaches out to next generation

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY PAT SHERMAN The world’s foremost authority on Chimpanzees, Jane Goodall, was in La Jolla Friday night, Sept. 28, to raise money for her Virginia-based wildlife and environmental conservation organization, The Jane Goodall Institute. The event was held at the La Jolla Farms estate of Michelle Lerach, owner of Cups bakery, and husband, William Lerach. Prior to the event, the 78-year-old primatologist, an- Jane Goodall, founder of the Jane thropologist and Goodall Institute and a UN United Nations Mes- Messenger of Peace. senger of Peace sat Photo/Nancee Lewis down with this newspaper group to share some of her observations on mankind’s closest living relatives. Though Goodall does not travel with a live chimp, a stuffed Congolese companion was at her side, similar to Jubilee, the toy chimp her father gave her as a child, which still sits on her dresser in London. “He’s too frail to travel,” Goodall said of Jubilee, introducing “Mr. H,” her stuffed traveling companion of 16 years, which was given to her by young Marine who lost his

eyesight. Asked about the moment at Gombe Stream National Park when Goodall discovered chimpanzees’ dark side — which includes a capacity for violent and aggressive behavior, including cannibalism — Goodall said it was “really shocking.” However, she said chimps also have a tremendous capacity for love, compassion and altruism. “The chimpanzees show both, just as we do,” she said. “They have very strong bonds between family members, and can live to be 70 years. … Brothers will support each other; adult females will rescue their fully-grown sons, or go to their help, anyway.” During her 45-year study on the social and familial interactions of wild chimps in Gombe Stream in Tanzania, Goodall became one of the first researchers to challenge two long-held beliefs — that chimps are strictly vegetarian and that only humans construct and use tools. Asked if chimps have the capacity for more crafty endeavors, such as knitting or decoupage, Goodall laughed, noting that chimps in captivity have displayed a love of painting and have been taught more than 400 symbols of American Sign Language. “There are some chimpanzees who are very sophisticated in the use of touch pads and computers,” she said. “They have amazing memories for positions of numbers on the page.” The greatest difference between chimps and humans, she said, is mankind’s “explosive” intellectual development — an evolutionary process she doesn’t see occurring in chimps without a spoken language or its equivalent. “If they did develop, I would hope that the right brain would develop at the expense of the left brain, because look at the mess we’ve made,” she said. “How is it the most intellectual creatures who have ever walked on the face of the planet are destroying their only home?” Goodall currently travels 300 days a year sharing her

message of forest conservation, raising awareness about the commercial monkey, chimp and ape meat trade, and reaching out to the next generation through her organization’s “Roots and Shoots” program, which works with preschoolto college-age youth in more than 130 countries. “In Tanzania there’s about 200 square miles of forest that we’re helping to restore or protect, by working with the people, getting their support and helping them to live better lives — working with the people so that they don’t need to cut the trees down or hunt the monkeys, because they can do other things,” she said. Roots and Shoots participants work in groups, choosing from three projects to improve the planet: people, animals and the environment. “You learn about it, yes, but (you also) roll up your sleeves and get out and take action,” Goodall said. “It’s main message is every single individual matters, every single individual makes a difference every single day — and we have a choice as to what kind of difference we’re going to make.” “There’s no point in saving anything if the young people aren’t going to look after it better than we have,” she said.

Biographer of ’60s guitarist will share his ‘experience’ Old Globe presents’ Good People’ BY PAT SHERMAN Steve Roby, acclaimed biographer, archivist and historian of the late guitar virtuoso, Jimi “Voodoo Child” Hendrix, will be in town for a discussion and book signing, 7 p.m. Oct. 13 at D.

performed with his three-piece band, the Experience. The interviews chronicle the height of the Seattleborn musician’s career, from his arrival in London in 1966 to his accidental death from asphyxiation on Sept. 18, 1970. In his first British press interview, The Record Mirror’s Peter Jones dubbed the up-and-coming artist, “Mr. Phenomenon.” The last interview, conducted just a week before he died and shortly after his final performance in Germany, finds the artist in a “fragile state,” Roby said. “He was in state of flux, kind of a bit uncertain about his future,” Roby said, noting that the Experience had just broken up and that Hendrix was under pressure from executives at Reprise Records to release a follow-up to his third and final album, 1968’s “Electric Ladyland.” “One point he makes (during the interview) is that he wants to be known for not being just a guitar player or a singer,” Roby said. “He wanted to establish himself as a producer or getting into another form of music, like jazz. “Jimi wanted to expand the band, (and his) manager wanted it to continue to be a three-piece, because it had been a successful outfit selling records, and selling out concerts,” Roby said. “Jimi wanted to take it further and experiment with new sounds. He wanted to add horns and congas. He had been experimenting with people like Miles Davis and John McLaughlin. … His manager wasn’t going for it.” Through the course of the interviews collected for the book, Hendrix expounds on his songwriting process, guitar technique, traumatic childhood, and myriad influences — from Bob Dylan to science fiction books.

Patriot Profiles: Take care of your Marines and they’ll take care of you This column presents “Patriot Profiles” to provide readers insight into the lives of our country’s heroes. BY JEANNE MCKINNEY A loving father tells his 5-year-old daughter “Daddy’s a police officer fighting the bad guys,” a concept that helps her understand why her father has to be deployed for months at a time. Thousands more children, who yearn for a parent to return from war, learn hard and fast the meaning of sacrifice in the military. And yet these youngsters, who give so much, get back the vital blessings of freedom as long as there are fathers, mothers and others willing to step up to defend it. Sergeant Travis D. Nessel served his first four years in the Marine Corps and got out when his daughter was born. At that time he thought, “It wasn’t for me.” When he was recalled back to active duty, he realized how much he’d missed it — choosing to re-enlist back into a bonded chain of brotherhood that is “First to Fight.” What spurs him on? “It’s duty to that guy left or right of you more than anything else.” “‘First to Fight’ is more than just a motto,” states the Marine Corps. “It’s a mindset and a core tenet

driving every Marine to achieve and maintain optimal readiness. You never know when the next conflict or crisis will occur.” In 1952, the 82nd Congress mandated that, “The Marine Corps be the most ready when the nation is generally the least ready…” Nessel, an “Amphibious Assault Vehicle Crew Chief,” adds, “People on the outside might think you wake up running and go fight wars.” From day one of signing up, it’s constant preparation – testing, schooling, testing, and more school in order to be battle-ready. The hardest time for Nessel was when he attended his first Sergeant’s Course. “In three months, they teach you everything from basic tactics, ways to counsel and mentor, public speaking, military papers format, and clerical skills…I took a lot away from that that I refer to all the time.” He went on to attend Marine Combat Training School of Infantry (MCTSOI) where he learned weaponry and how a fire team operates. From there it was school for amphibious

assault vehicles (AAV), massive tracked vehicles capable of going on land and water. “The AAV’s purpose is ship to shore movements, amphibious assaults, attacking b e a c h fronts, and stuff of that nature,” says Nessel. “We also use it a lot to transport troops.” The AAV can go up to 12 nautical miles out from shore – an amazing distance for a 29-ton watertight “tank.” Although no stranger to the unknown — being born into a family of firefighters — Nessel found plunging this $250 million “amtrack” through the surf a bit intimidating. All the hatches are closed and darkness surrounds except for dome lights. “My first splash in school, we had a fire in the generator.” With older amphibious vehicles, it’s a lot of “turning wrenches.” “For every eight hours of operation, it’s eight hours of maintenance. Like any job, you get used to it.” Nessel, a native of Eau Claire, Wisc., volunteered for a deployment to Al Anbar Province with the 3rd

Amphibious Assault Battalion in support of “Operation Iraqi Freedom II – ½.” While on tracked vehicles, he led a crew of three and was in charge of four other vehicles in his section. “The body of the AAV is light armor [which is more vulnerable], so we put a 50-caliber heavy barrel gun and grenade launcher on there, which enhances our defense.” Soft-spoken, but serious, the sandy-haired Sergeant explains, “When you get in country, your first brief is rules of engagement.” As Crew Chief, he’s in charge to make tactical decisions if they get engaged. Are the protocols to shoot met? Can they see the hostile intent? “We use warning flags and pyrotechnics — anything to de-escalate the situation before it gets to the worst-case scenario.” Nessel conducted numerous raids, seizures, and searches to keep supply routes open along the border of Iraq and Syria. A year later, as part of Operation Steel Curtain and Iron Fist, he returned back to that same spot to find insurgents had completely taken over. Villagers had been pushed out of the cities of Sadah and Husaybah and were living in tents on farm-

A 25-year tradition helps wipe away drama of divorce BY ROB LEDONNE Divorce can be one of the most isolating, stressful processes a person can go through in their entire life. A l o n g with the emotional toll from a dissolution of a marriage, there are a variety Elizabeth Bryan of important factors and decisions that need to be made, many of them difficult. Fortunately for North County residents, for the past 20 years there’s been a useful aide for those going through a divorce. It’s called Second Saturday Divorce Workshops, and so far it’s changed thousands of people’s lives in a positive and meaningful way. Elizabeth Bryan, a multi-talented writer who co-authored the popular book “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings,” knows all too well about the rigors of divorce. “Throughout the my own journey, I was raising three boys and realized I was playing a sort of secondary role in my former marriage. When I got a divorce, I went overnight from having a nice lifestyle to becoming completely penniless.” Still picking up the pieces from what became a lengthy and costly process, she discovered Second Saturday and now is a featured speaker at every meeting. “I went to the first one and told my story, because I’m the kind of woman that you could go ‘What does she have to worry about it?’ That couldn’t be further from the truth. I open the event, and from the moment I start talking, people break down and start to cry; they are so raw, terrified and starving for information.” Unbiased information is exactly what people can expect, and lots of it thanks to a bevy of rotating attorneys, mediators and counselors. Each person speaks for about 60 minutes, followed by a question and answer session, and Bryan notes it’s all an “empowering process to learn about the different options you have.” So empowering that Second Saturday has been going strong since 1988 thanks to Carmel Valley’s Ginita Wall (CPA, CFP,

Candace Bahr and Ginita Wall CDFA) and Carlsbad resident Candace Bahr (CEA, CDFA), the founders of the event, as well as the organization that puts it together, dubbed WIFE (or Women’s Institute for Financial Education). Bahr, who currently runs a financial planning and investment management firm, explained the genesis of Second Saturday: “I was reading an article in the newspaper in 1988 that said women’s financial situations decrease dramatically after divorce. I thought we could make a significant difference in people’s lives, since this teaches people how to work effectively, and make a decision whether they even should be divorcing in the first place.” Bahr’s quick to point out that the price of the sixhour long workshop ($45) hasn’t increased since its launch, and that it’s all notfor-profit. “After expenses, all of

the proceeds go into the community for scholarships. Everyone is a volunteer at the program, no one is getting paid.” In addition, a second visit is $25 and participants can bring a friend for free. Second Saturday, which has separate workshops for women and men (both taking place on Mira Costa College’s San Elijo campus), attracts a wide variety of people, from multi-millionaires to people living out of their cars, all there for a single purpose. Sums up Bryan: “The tools you get are invaluable. We all have these feelings of fear, but there is hope.” The next Second Saturday takes place on Oct. 13. For more information, call Ginita Wall at (858) 7920524 or visit them on the web: www.SecondSaturday. com. Also visit www.wife. org.

The Kitchen Shrink: This week’s recipe

Below is this week’s recipe from “The Kitchen Shrink” — Catharine Kaufman. For her column, titled “Tips and tricks of the culinary trade,” visit (Food category). For additional recipes or tips email or check out

Pucker Up Meyer Lemon Cookies 2 1/2 cups unbleached flour 1/2 cup sweet butter, softened at room temperature 2 eggs 1 1/4 cups granulated white sugar 1/4 cup Meyer lemon juice A few drops almond extract 1 teaspoon Meyer lemon zest 1/2 teaspoon baking powder Dash of salt Confectioner’s sugar Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking or cookie sheets with parchment paper. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine butter and sugar and blend on medium speed. Add the eggs, juice, extract and zest, and blend on low speed. Add flour, baking powder and salt until well blended. Using an ice cream scoop

SCRIPPS continued from page B1 ers; the right technology to provide the best care and a physical environment that promotes healing. When patients visit the facility, the first impression will be dramatically different from what patients at Scripps Green used to experience as they walked down two flights of stairs or rode the elevator to the basement at the hospital and used dressing rooms that were like small closets. Now patients, including those just going for rechecks or an appointment that doesn’t involve a radiation treatment, enter a modernist facility with extensive use of glass, allowing for lots of natural light, a rooftop healing garden, a patient resource library and nature-inspired art work. It also has research and physician office space. He said he hopes the new center is “a place where people going through a dark time in their life will find some comfort.” While Lin said he loves doing what he does, “my passion is my family.” And that includes the family dog, traveling, eating good food and being involved with his daughter’s and son’s activities. Lin also likes to run and swim, and he is a UCLA-trivia buff dating back to his days as a campus tour guide when he was an undergrad. “I love to follow UCLA sports and know all sorts of useless stats,” he said. His daughter Abby, 7, plays tennis, and his son Noah, 10, who is a student at Diegueño Middle School, swims three days a week

and is getting ready to give a triathlon a shot. Noah also plays in a band with several school friends. His proud papa noted that the boys will be playing at the grand opening. Lin and his wife Daphne have known each other since they played together as children, he said. Their parents all came to the U.S. to go to graduate school at the University of Oregon. Lin’s parents had each left China after World War II and moved to Taiwan where they met. Independently over the years, the couple’s parents moved to San Diego and then to Los Angeles, where both Lin and Daphne attended UCLA – again with no connection. At their parents’ urging they reconnected after “not playing together for 15 years” and renewed their relationship. Now they’ve been married for 13 years. As he talked about his family and his work, you could hear his dedication and passion come through, along with that sense that he believes in finding balance between mind, body and spirit.

IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the deceased, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in the Probate Code Section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code Section 1250.

“I couldn’t have been more proud and thought they were deserving of an award.” Although Travis had never written one himself, he did the award criteria research, took seven hours to write it and then had to get it approved. “When they pinned the Navy Achievement Medal on my Marines — that was the most memorable thing for me.” At this time, it may be too frightening for Sergeant Travis D. Nessel to share details of his daily work with his young daughter – they’re not restful bedtime stories. When she can better understand, her daddy’s own Navy and Marine Corps Combat Medals and Certificates of Achievement will

swell her heart. Her eyes can widen when she hears of his days plunging through the surf and taking pop shots while amtracking over foreign roads embedded with mines. Unforgettably real will be visions of forging convoys through the night to help secure vital supply routes and destroy enemy threats. The stories of her warrior father helping people who live in ignorance, fear, and poverty to build new and free lives are experiences she can pass along to her children. The Marine Corps ethos Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful) will be forever ingrained in her personal legacy as she never forgets a code her “daddy” now lives by, “Take care of your Marines and they’ll take care of you.”
