POTENTIAL LIFE SAVER — The third annual free CPR/AED training classes in the Rancho BernardoGlassman Recreation Center on Saturday drew 194 participants, ranging in age from 2 to 82, including Cub Scout CJ Ainsworth photographed while learning proper life saving techniques. Within an hour, participants were taught how to perform basic life support CPR, which only uses chest compressions. They were also shown how to use an automated external defibrillator. Young children Photo by Steve Logsdon were taught how to call 911. See more photos on Page A17.

A letter requesting a re-evaluation of speed limits on Pomerado Road will be sent to the city by the Rancho Bernardo Planning Board. While waiting for a new study, the board wants the lower speed limits reinstated north of Pomerado Road’s intersection with Rancho Bernardo Road. At the board’s Nov. 21 meeting, member Vicki Touchstone included in her motion for the request that the study be completed when school is in session, so the city engineer can factor in the increased traffic plus presence of children. Last summer the city completed a study on two sections of Pomerado Road that resulted in two speed limit increases by 5 miles per hour. The section from Rancho Bernardo Road to Pomerado Court went from 35 to 40 mph and Pomerado Court to Paseo del Verano rose from 45 to 50 mph. Some residents living in The Knolls and Gatewood Hills neighborhoods said this has made the area SEE ROAD, Page A26

Ralphs descendant recalls family vacations at future 4S Ranch BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK Before 4S Ranch became a community, it was cattle land the Ralphs family enjoyed for weekend getaways, said a family member. Linda Ralphs Kaeser recalled on Nov. 20 how her family would drive from Los Angeles to go horseback riding, bird hunting and enjoy the peace and tranquility of their 3,600-acre property that her grandfather purchased in 1938. “We never permitted deer hunting ... just birds to eat,” she said. Kaeser shared her memories and explained how

the community of 4S Ranch came into existence plus her family’s five-generation history in California and its start in the grocery business while speaking at the Rancho Bernardo Historical Society Museum as part of its speaker series. One thing she could not explain was the significance of the “4S,” a name given to the parcel prior to her family buying it. Kaeser said she has tried to find out, but the answer seems lost to history. “It was very much small potatoes,” Kaeser said when comparing their ranch to the nearby 30,000- to 40,000-acre ranches. But the number of cattle that

could be grazed, not size, determined economic value. “You couldn’t plant crops and there was no water to speak of. Our ranch house is still completely off the grid.” Little has been done to modernize the four-bedroom, one-story U-shaped hacienda built of pouredin-place concrete during the 1920s. “It was very unusual for that day,” she said, adding all supplies had to be brought by horse and wagon. The house still has no utilities. The family accesses well water, gets electricity via generator, and uses SEE 4S RANCH, Page A12

Inaugural holiday shopping fundraiser opens Dec. 5 BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK Holiday shopping, entertainment and prize drawings will help Oak Valley Middle School’s PTSA raise money to improve the campus’ Internet access. The inaugural “Holiday on the Quad” will be open to the entire community from 3:15 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5 at the school, 16055 Winecreek Road in 4S Ranch. Parents of Oak Valley students will get an early opportunity to shop, starting at 2 p.m. Admission is free to the fundraiser that will include free babysitting by Girl Scouts in Troop 8718 starting at 3:30 p.m. so parents can buy gifts without their little one’s seeing their selections. “They just earned their babysitting badge and are CPR trained,” said event co-chairwoman Kristen McGuire, who added free-will donations can be given to the troop. “It’s a great coming together of the community,” said co-chairwoman Diane Scavuzzo, who added that among the attractions and entertainment will be a face painter, balloons, performances by the high school cheerleaders, music by Oak Valley’s orchestra, a DJ, karate demonstration, a bake sale and many prizes through an opportunity drawing. One person will win a bicycle donated by the 4S Ranch Ralphs grocery store. There will also be many gift baskets. Among the 25 vendors selling gift items will be Arbonne, CAbi, GenDecorative Street Signs, Origami Owl, Pampered Chef, Scentsy, Silpada, Stella & Dot, Tastefully Simple, Tea Gallerie and Thirty-One. There will also be a variety of unique artisan and gift items from local Etsy shops. In addition, the Hot Spot Studio will help shoppers and stu-

The gourmet food trucks will include Cheesy Amigos, Kona Ice, Lil Miss Short Cakes, Organic Food Truck and Pierogi Truck. Scavuzzo said some of the offerings will be lobster macaroni and cheese, vegan goulash, wild caught salmon, kettle corn and complimentary Starbucks coffee. Also participating will be Coffee Bean, Baskin Robbins, Panera Bread and ClifBar. Proceeds will go toward the Technology for All fund, Oak Valley PTSA’s goal to upgrade the campus’ Wi-Fi, a $15,000 endeavor, McGuire said. “We want to fund full Wi-Fi on campus since (availability) is very spotty,” McGuire said. “When built, the student body was not carrying iPads and smartphones.” Scavuzzo said Oak Valley’s principal listed the upgrade among wish-list items for the PTSA. She said when the school opened in 2005, it had state-of-the-art technology, but technological advances utilized by its more than 1,300 students to access websites and complete homework have exceeded capabilities. PTSA leaders are trying to raise the needed $15,000 within three months. Since this is the first year for the holiday shopping event, Scavuzzo said it is not possible to estimate how much of the goal will be met through it. “This is going to be a quality event that is great for the students, teachers and community,” Scavuzzo said. “It is a fundraiser, but that is second to having it be a great event.” “It will be outside, so it will feel very holiday,” McGuire said. “Bundle up for a fun evening.” A few vendor spots were still available as of Monday. For details, contact Scavuzzo at 858-531-8300 or dianescavuzzo@ me.com.

The chapter includes members from Rancho Bernardo and Poway. The international organization, founded in 2006, is part of the non-government organization SAFE (Sub-Saharan Africa Family Enrichment). It holds fundraisers to help

poverty-stricken grandmothers — called gogos — in Malawi, Africa, who are raising their grandchildren. Most of the youngsters were orphaned due to AIDS. The help includes providing food and supplies so families can raise crops, have mosquito nets to protect children from malaria, receive blankets and get assis-

When the holiday sale was held locally last year, more than $5,000 was raised, said Leslie Lewis, U.S. coordinator for Gogo Grandmothers. “There was a drought last year in Malawi, poor harvest and great hunger,” Lewis said. “Because of some of those funds raised, Gogo Grand-

Woodson and visit Potato Chip Rock also means more revenue for the city, as they visit Poway businesses, said Cunningham. “This is a potato chip I can recommend to everyone,” said Cunningham. “You can get outdoors, and get some fresh air and exercise.” Lake Poway Park is located at 14656 Lake Poway Road. There is a parking fee for non-residents, parking is free for Poway residents.

Mikkelson, a licensed esthetician since 1984, returned to offering beauty treatments three years ago, and is still going strong. “I love this business,” said Mikkelson. “I got back into it six years ago doing eyelash extensions. I love the flexibility of the hours and the connections I make to people. “I absolutely love what I do,” said Mikkelson, “and I feel that it comes out in my work.

Preventing hardening of the attitudes Should I use humor to sell? — Izzy Delbert Recognizing that people do business with folks they know, like and trust, I’ve become a big fan of using humor to sell myself and, in turn, my services. Humor defines the emotional state of a relationship, the same way lighting sets the tone in a theater production. Humor’s a universal language, and having a good sense of humor can be an important sales or management tool. Introducing humor into the conversation makes a big difference, whether you’re selling your message inside or outside the organization.

Rob Weinberg ASK MR. MARKETING The quickest, most effective way to become more proficient at the skill of humor is to lighten up yourself. A willingness to poke fun at yourself positively affects communication flow, impacting relationships both with clients and co-workers. Begin using subtle humor like wearing entertaining ties or interesting accessories. Attach amusing quotes to your emails and mix them up to maintain reader’s attention. Self-effacing (not selfderogatory) humor is effective as it’s non-threatening to

others. When I tripped during a recent presentation I loudly said, “Left foot, right foot, left foot...I need to remind myself sometimes.” The resulting laugh acknowledged the moment, defused the situation, showed I was human, reduced everyone’s embarrassment, and

put me back in control of the conversation. Finally, it’s important to know what makes others happy to make them laugh while feeling appreciated and respected. Pay attention to what makes colleagues, employees, or customers laugh or smile. The more you feed them humor they like, the more positive the climate becomes. My family oftentimes accuses me of being a character, cracking far too many

jokes and sometimes going over the top. And they’re probably right. However, I know that humor is a skill, and the more you practice the techniques and timing, the more proficient you can become.

POMERADO NEWSPAPER GROUP

RB church to show film, shed PQ hotel ordered to increase light on sex trafficking issue security, pay civil penalties BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK A Rancho Bernardo church is attempting to raise awareness of human trafficking in the region that includes local teens among its victims. The feature-length documentary, “Nefarious: Merchant of Souls,” covers the entire spectrum, from recruitment to sex slavery victim liberation. It includes interviews with victims, activists, therapists, humanitarian workers and former “johns” in order to present the “gritty reality in a powerful, compelling and redemptive way,” organizers said. The PG-13 rated, 90-minute film can be seen for free at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7 at The Church at Rancho Bernardo, 11740 Bernardo Plaza Court. “It is for anybody who wants to learn more about the issue, as young as high school,” said Nathan Alcorn, the church’s IMPACT Outreach Ministry director. Alcorn said there is a movement in San Diego County to bring an end to human trafficking. “It’s a major issue that is not being talked about that is happening locally,” he said. “It used to be victims from overseas were brought to America, but now they’re recruiting girls from our local high schools.” According to law enforcement statistics, Alcorn said California has become “a hot spot” for domestic and international human trafficking due to its large population, international borders, large economy, extensive ports and

metropolitan regions. Statistics show the average entr y age of American minors into the sex trade is 12 to 14 years old, many of the victims are runaway girls who were sexually abused as children, and San Diego is among the FBI’s 13 highest child sex trafficking areas in the United States. The industry has rapidly grown due to the prevalence and anonymity of the Internet, which makes trading women and children easier than before, according to law enforcement officials. “The State Department said trafficking is the fastest growing crime worldwide,” Alcorn said. “In the United States, there are around 200,000 people being trafficked. In California between 2008 (and) 2010, the Department of Justice opened 2,500 cases classified as sex trafficking. Nearly half of those cases involved children.” After the film, attendees will be able to speak with representatives of nonprofit organizations that are involved in ending human trafficking. These include Generate Hope, a rehabilitation facility in Bonita that works with girls; Hidden Treasures, which goes to the streets to talk with women in prostitution; Seeds of Hope, which works to rehabilitate victims in Costa Rica; and Lusso Bags, which sells cosmetic, tote and shoe bags made by survivors of human trafficking in India and donates 5 percent of proceeds to help stop human trafficking. For more information, contact Alcorn at Nathan@thechurchatrb.org or call 858-592-2434.

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A hotel in Rancho Penasquitos with a history of prostitutionrelated activity is under a court order to make changes in how it conducts business, the City Attorney’s Office announced Nov. 21. The judgment calls for the operators of the La Quinta Hotel at 10185 Paseo Montril to increase security, install more security cameras and signs to deter criminal activity and change hotel registration policies, among other requirements. The hotel owner, BRE/LQ Properties LLC, must pay $15,000 in investigative costs to the city of San Diego and $5,000 in civil penalties, according to the City Attorney’s Office. An additional $20,000 in civil penalties was stayed by Judge Judith Hayes, pending successful compliance with the terms of the settlement. “Hotel guests need to feel safe and secure,” said City Attorney Jan Goldsmith. “Our office will continue to work diligently to hold business owners accountable and clean up neighborhoods impacted by illegal

activity such as prostitution.” San Diego police have made 16 prostitution arrests at the hotel since March 2012, and undercover officers determined that many females who frequented the property were offering sexual services through a website, according to the City Attorney’s Office. Police said they also discovered the 6-year-old son of a pimp and prostitute on the premises. The judgment requires the hotel to photocopy all guest and visitor identification cards for a period of time; require a deposit for all rooms rented with cash; register all guest and visitor vehicles; install additional lighting around the hotel; and continue to maintain a “Do not Rent” list of known individuals arrested for prostitution relatedactivity on or off the property. Also, visitors to the hotel between the hours of 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. must register at the desk and present valid governmentissued picture identification.

OBITUARIES

Raymond Anthony Witt 1930 – 2013

Raymond Witt, 83, passed away Sunday, November 10, 2013, surrounded by his loved ones in his home in Rancho Bernardo. Born April 29, 1930, he grew up in Cicero, IL, with his brother’s, Edward, Leonard and Eugene, and sister, Dolores. Raymond joined the United States Marines Corp. when he was 16 years old. While fighting for our country in the Korean War he received Purple Heart medal. After 21 years of service he retired as a

Gunnery Sergeant. In 1953 Raymond was a groomsman in his friend’s wedding and was paired up with a beautiful young woman named Marcella. Shortly after the wedding, Raymond received his orders to report in San Diego, CA, at MCRD. Marcella romantically pursued him across the country with a vague intuition from when they had previously been acquainted in Cicero. Raymond married Marcella J. Witt (who preceded him in 2007) on January 9, 1954, in San Diego. They enjoyed their days gardening, teaching their three sons, Ray Witt (preceded in 1991), Russell Witt (residing in Escondido), and Roger Witt (residing in Fallbrook) the finer points of golf, and their two daughters, Linda Peart (residing in Escondido) and Gail Vahidi (residing in Poway) how to be strong and independent. A great-grandfather to some and a great-greatgrandfather to one who will unfortunately never get to know the kind, honest, forgiving, and WITTY man

our father and grandfather was. Taking over his beloved wife’s influence on the ever-growing legacy of 29 predecessors, Raymond Witt became the glue that held the family together. A patriarch of the most unprejudiced, where in his company you would enjoy his humor, feel the warmth of his charisma and watch his generosity bloom. In memory of a hero, we will miss and remember our Father, Grandpa, Brother and True Friend always. He was a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Poway, the VFW and Elks Lodge. He enjoyed golfing,

NATIONAL CHARITY LEAGUE's POWAY CHAPTER

Three 'amazing' homes on Holiday Home Tour BY EMILY SORENSEN The National Charity League’s Poway chapter is getting ready for this year’s Holiday Home Tour, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7. The annual home tour benefits the Valley Elementary after-school homework club, the Poway Senior Center and the Gayle Kennedy Scholarship Fund, which provides a scholarship to PUSD girls who plan to pursue education as a career choice and are in financial need. Three homes will be on the tour this year. “All three are stunning,” said chapter president Michele Prescott. “Amazing. They’re amazingly decorated.” The tour, which is $26 a person, starts as “Hidden Holiday Resort,” on 12751 Maple-

wood Court in Poway, and will continue to two more homes in Poway, “Yule Bells of Bridlewood” and “Buon Natale!” whose addresses will be disclosed to ticket purchasers privately. “The homes are all lovely and have beautiful decorations,” said Prescott. Each home, in addition to showcasing lavish holiday decorations, will have live musical entertainment. The final home will also offer refreshments. The event will be staffed by members of the National Charity League’s Poway chapter. For National Charity League members Lisa and Cari Blank, whose home will be shown on the tour, being part of the event is another way they can give back to the community. “I am happy that our home is a part of the tour because the proceeds benefit worthy causes, but I’ve really enjoyed the camaraderie of the amazingly talented women in our organiza-

tion who are so generous with their time and talents. It has been a lot of fun preparing for the tour and sharing decorating ideas,” said Blank in an email. Blank and her daughter Cari have been members of the Poway chapter since 2010. “We are all so busy these days, but being involved in National Charity League give Cari and me an opportunity to do something good together for the community,” said Blank in an email. Tickets can be purchased online at nclpoway.org, or at the Poway Senior Center, Crystal Gardens Florist in Poway, Village Mail and More in Rancho Bernardo and Canterbury Gardens in Escondido. Online ticket purchases will be held under your name on the will-call list at the first home. No children under 10 years old and no photography are allowed on the tour.

NCL members Lisa and Cari Blank prepare their home for the Holiday Home Tour on Dec. 7.

It is nestled by a dozen eucalyptus trees. “It’s a great spot to hang out, with wonderful views and you get the ocean breezes. The sound of the wind in the trees is the most peaceful thing you’ll ever hear.” Years ago the family sold the grocery chain and the land passed to her, three siblings and three cousins.

Poway Elks Lodge to host youth basketball contest NATIONAL HOOP SHOOT INFO

BY EMILY SORENSEN The Poway Elks Lodge is once again hosting the Elks National Hoop Shoot, a free-throw contest for kids ages 8 to 13, 3 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5 at the Boys & Girls Club of Poway, 12988 Bowron Road. There are three age categories for each gender, 8-9, 1011 and 12-13. Contestants will be assigned an age group based on the age that they will be on April 1, 2014, and must be 8 years old by that date. All children who participate will receive a participation award. “For some kids, this might be the only trophy they win their entire lives,” said Poway Elks Lodge Exalted Leader Paul Kassel. Participation in the Hoop Shoot is free. Kids who win the contest at the lodge level will advance onto the district level, then state level, followed by the regional, and finally will compete on the national level on the campus of Western New England University in Springfield, Mass. In the end, one boy and one girl from each age group will win a national title and will have their names permanently inscribed at the Basketball Hall of Fame. The 2014 Elks Hoop Shoot National Finals will take

In addition to basketball, the Poway Elks Lodge has been keeping busy giving back to the community. Though the Elks are a social club, Kassel said the group is dedicated to helping others. “We exist to give back to the community,” said Kassel. “We’re really big on philanthropy.” The Poway Elks Lodge is partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Poway, sponsoring the club’s Be Healthy Class, where kids learn to cook healthy food on Fridays. The Lodge has also sponsored the Special Olympics softball team in the past. “We’ve accomplished a lot. We’re huge in the community, and our national foundation gives us opportunities for

grants, which we turn around and give to the community.” The Poway Elks are also part of the California-Hawaii project Purple Pigs, which helps provide therapy services to children. “This year, the Lodge raised over $11,000 from members to go toward Purple Pigs,” said Kassel. The California and Hawaii Lodges raised a total of $3 million for Purple Pigs this year. Their social aspect also makes the Elks adept at holding fundraisers for various groups. This year, the Poway Elks Lodge has held a number of fundraising events, including a dinner for Poway resident Brian Krans Hernandez, in order to help his family buy a specially trained assistance dog. “We raised $800,” said Kassel. The Lodge also raised over $20,000 for Wounded Warriors, and at their Cajun Festival in June, raised money for the victims of a tornado in Oklahoma. The Elks also rent out the lodge, located at 13219 Poway Road, for functions. Kassel said the Elks are always looking for new members to join them. Those interested in making new friends and giving back to their community can call 858-748-2543 or contact powayelks@gmail.com.

Poway artist turns Play-Doh into mosaic masterpieces BY EMILY SORENSEN

KNUDSON

A Poway mother and artist has turned her children’s PlayDoh into true works of art. As someone who used to work as an artist in a mural studio, Lacy Knudson isn’t new to making large pieces of art. Making those large art pieces out of her three children’s Play-Doh, however, is new. One day, while helping her young children play with their Play-Doh, Knudson took vari-

ous colors and made a small dot with them. She liked how the dot turned out, and an idea was born. “I thought, I could make real art with this,” said Knudson. “I was getting sick of kids crafts.” One dot turned into hundreds, and a year and a half later, Knudson has finished her third Play-Doh mosaic, “The Lady Undine,” joining her previous works “Goldilocks Zone” and “A New World.” Knudson combines the col-

ors she wants, then cuts out the dots with a circular cutter. After careful drying, she places the mosaic dots flat on a painting of the piece she has created to provide background and guidance for her mosaic. She then covers the mosaic in a two-part resin, which seals the mosaic in and causes it to glisten. The painting underneath the mosaic isn’t as detailed as her dots, but is meant to fill in the spots where the circles of Play-Doh don’t overlap. Her mosaics start out as blackand-white drawings, which she prints out to play around on with the colors. It was her daughter, Ruby, 6, who decided that “The Lady Undine” should have hot pink hair. “It’s nice that we can do it together,” said Knudson. Each mosaic takes a long time to make, due to the sheer amount of dots of PlayDoh needed to fill the large frames. Her biggest piece, “The Lady Undine,” measures in at 4 feet wide and 8 feet tall, and “A New World” is 4 feet by 6 feet. “Goldilocks Zone” is Knudson’s smallest piece, at 3 feet by 4 feet. “[“The Lady Undine”] is life size or a little larger,” said Knudson. “It actually doesn’t fit in my house [upright].” The size is part of the appeal for Knudson, however. “I really only like to make big art,” said Knudson. “I like how something changes your space when it’s that big.” The biggest challenge for Knudson in the beginning was finding enough Play-Doh at all. “It was hard to find enough, because I needed specific colors,” said Knudson, who scoured stores looking for the colors of Play-Doh that she needed. Knudson is planning on creating a fourth mosaic to complete the set, then hopes

Knudson’s latest mosaic, “The Lady Undine.” to find a museum or gallery in which to display the pieces. “I have one I want to make next in the series,” said Knudson. “It’s very large, and it’s about love.” “I just love the finished

project,” said Knudson of her work. “Each piece has so many colors. It’s fun to look at up close, and from far away.” For more photos of Knudson’s artwork, check out her website at www.Dozayix.com.

Here's how to create a living will Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good resources that can help seniors create a living will? — Getting Old Dear Getting, Creating a living will is one of those things most people plan to do, but rarely get around to actually doing. Less than 30 percent of Americans currently have one. But preparing one now gives you say in how you want to be treated at the end of your life, not to mention it can spare your loved ones some very stressful medical care decisions at an emotional time. Here’s what you should know along with some resources to help you create one. Advance directives To adequately spell out your wishes regarding your end-of-life medical treatment you need two legal documents: A “living will” which tells your doctor what kind of care you want to receive if you become incapacitated, and a “health care power of attorney” (or health care proxy), which names a person you authorize to make medical decisions on your behalf if you become unable to. These two documents are known as an “advance directive,” and will

only be utilized if you are too ill to make medical decisions yourself. You can also change or update it whenever you please. You may also want to consider including a do-not-resuscitate (DNR) as part of your advance directive, since advanced directives do little to protect you from unwanted emergency care like CPR. Doctors and hospitals in all states accept DNR orders. One other tool you should know about that will complement your advance directive is the Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST). Currently endorsed in 16 states with dozens more in some phase of development, a POLST translates your end-of-life wishes into medical orders to be honored by your doctors. To learn more or set one up, see polst.org. Do-it-yourself There are several free or low-cost resources available today to help you write your advance directive, and it takes only a few minutes from start to finish. One that’s completely free to use is Caring Connections, a resource created by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. They provide state-specific advance directive forms with instructions on

Jim Miller THE SAVVY SENIOR their website (caringinfo.org) that you can download and print for free. Or you can call 800-658-8898 and they will mail them to you and answer any questions you may have. You may also be able to get free advance directive forms from your doctor’s office, hospital or local health department. Or, for only $5, an even better tool is the Five Wishes living will. Created by Aging with Dignity, a nonprofit advocacy organization, Five Wishes is a simple do-it-yourself document that covers all facets of an advance directive that will help you create a more detailed customized document. Legally valid in 42 states, to learn more or to receive a copy, visit agingwithdignity.org or call 888-594-7437. Five Wishes can also be completed online for free for a limited time at fivewishes.org.

Call 858-674-1123. Upcoming events: • Congressman Scott Peters focuses on the myths and truths about the Affordable Care Act 11 a.m. to noon Monday, Dec. 9. • Learn about hearing loss and emerging technologies from David Illich, AuD., 11 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Bernardo Drive in Rancho Bernardo Community Park, is a community facility offering various See SENIORS, Page A18

Get legal help If, however, you decide you would rather use a lawyer to draft your advance directive, look for one who specializes in estate planning and health care related matters. The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (naela.org) and the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils (naepc.org) websites are good resources that have directories to help you find someone in your area. Costs will vary depending on which state you reside in, but you can expect to pay somewhere between $200 and $500 to get one made. Tell your family To ensure your final wishes are followed, it’s very important that you tell your family members, health care proxy and doctor so they all know what you want. You should also provide copies of your advanced directive to everyone involved to help prevent stress and arguments later. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC “Today” show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

EDITORIAL

Think local when doing holiday shopping

Y

ou know about “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday,” two major retail shopping events that kick off the holiday shopping season. But how about “Small Business Saturday”? This year, if you have the opportunity to shop on Saturday, make it a point to visit local, “mom-and-pop” small businesses. Patronizing local stores and ser vices keeps money in the community, which in turn is spent on other goods and services. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, there were nearly 28 million small businesses in the United States last year. Over the past two decades, they created 65 percent of net new jobs. For every $100 spent in locally owned, independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures, according to the small-business advocacy group The 3/50 Project. Local sales generate local taxes, which are used for basic

government services such as fire and police protection, road repairs, parks and recreation services. Why go on the Internet to shop, or to retail stores out of town, when the money is needed here to fight fires, catch crooks, fill potholes and purchase new library books? Some have argued that they need to shop online or at big box retailers because our local businesses sometimes lack variety of products and good value for the dollar. We disagree on both counts and we question whether those comments are based on recent consumer research or outdated impressions. Our position is that locally owned stores usually meet or exceed the expectations of their customers in terms of both price and selection. When planning where to spend your dollars, make a locally owned business your first choice this Saturday, and beyond. You’ll find many of them advertising this week in the special holiday gift guide that starts on Page B7.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Drones would benefit firefighters Mr. Patterson did not state his real purpose in last week’s guest column, which expressed his fears for massive wildfires due to a drone crash. The home page of Mr. Patterson’s organization “Veterans For Peace” states as its purpose, “End The Arms Race. Exposing The True Costs of Militarism.” There is also this revealing sentence on that home page: “We intend to stand with Private Manning every step of the way.” Private Manning, if you will recall, was the Army intelligence clerk who took it upon himself to disclose thousands of classified documents to, among others, literal sworn enemies of our nation. Mr. Patterson is fronting for an organization that is not out to end wildfires, but to end America’s ability to defend itself. Drones happen to be a very useful tool in our nation’s defense effort so Mr. Patterson wants to do his bit to make them unavailable to our troops. Actually, drones would also be extremely useful in preventing devastating wildfires. Since drones can stay aloft for extended periods of time, at far less cost than helicopters, they can monitor our forest and scrub lands efficiently and economically and by so doing, give our firefighters the chance to get to a fire before it rages out of control. Mr. Patterson would do better, if his concerns were really wildfires, to pen a column about the hazards of catalytic converters or lost hunters starting signal fires or pyromaniacs. There was a reason that no examples of a crashed drone starting a wildfire were mentioned by Mr. Patterson. He doesn’t know of any such instance. Neither do I.

Your grandchildrens' burden My Democrat friends should be ashamed of themselves voting to ask their children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren to pay for their health Obamacare

and to pay their part of the $17 trillion debt load. Your grandchildren and their children will be well into their 50s or 60s or later if things do not get better or these problems are not corrected. In 2012, 314 million people means that each man, woman and child’s portion of the debt is $53,500. And this amount continues to grow each day. The could amount to a lot more money as Solondras’ stimulus money and the Obamacare fiasco continues to pour money down a rat hole to fix a broken problem. Further, remember I wrote about the toxic effects of omnibus bills such as Obamacare where many bad things are hidden in these bills that like the date in 2010 where people now have lost their current health plan due to minor changes in the bill. The change they cannot keep their health plan and keep their current doctor. Beware! An omnibus immigration bill might be on the horizon. This omnibus bill will be an “o-bamanation” where the hidden terms will have dire effects, costly and disruptive.

Missing holiday The Grinch (United States Postal Service) has stolen Christmas. The new “Holiday Stamps” are Hanukkah, a celebration of God’s help for the Jewish people, Kwanzaa, a celebration of African life and culture. A gingerbread house? However, you can ask for Christmas stamps. I will keep Christ in my Christmas, and wish all a “Merry Christmas.”

COMMON GROUND: WHY SHOULD SAN DIEGANS CARE ABOUT THE FARM BILL?

How to reach us

Take a moment to ponder the real hunger games

14023 Midland Road Poway, CA 92064 Phone: 858-748-2311 Hours: Mon.-Fri. 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

C

ome Friday, I will partake in my fourth Thanksgiving dinner of the year. Two Canadian Thanksgiving celebrations in October, and two here this week. I’m grateful for such personal abundance and grateful to live on a continent that makes much of it possible. As someone who spent her childhood summers on my grandparent’s farm in Iowa, and who is sometimes a harvester at a friend’s farm in Ramona and another friend’s vineyard in Valley Center, I appreciate not only all the turkey basting that goes into a delicious Thanksgiving meal, but the hard work that came before any food goes on the table. Sadly, there are those who can’t begin to imagine one Thanksgiving meal, let alone four. For instance, the 842 million people worldwide who do not have enough to eat. There are 49 million Americans living in food-insecure (meaning they don’t know where their next meal will come from) households, 33.1 million adults and 15.9 million children. Most San Diegans don’t think much about farming, even though we live in the 18th largest agricultural county in the U.S. If you’re reading this, you probably don’t think much about hunger either because you likely live in an affluent suburb and have the luxury to sit down over a cup of coffee and browse your local newspaper. With the farm bill up for debate in Congress, now is the perfect time to think about both. First a few basics: Today’s farm bill is descended from the first farm bill, which was passed in 1933 as part of the New Deal. Passed every five or so years since then, each farm bill is divided into a number of different topics, called titles. Most significant among them are: Commodities (i.e. subsidies), and Nutrition. The Commodities title essentially seeks to find a way to ensure commodity farmers are fairly compensated for their crops. The Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) — popularly known as Food Stamps and School Nutrition programs — is a federal aid program that provides financial assistance for purchasing food to low- and no-income people. In San Diego County, with its high cost of living, the impact of the economic downturn has been devastating for some families. The San Diego Food Bank reports that in Vista, for instance, there’s been an 86 percent increase in demand for emergency food assistance. The number of families participat-

Amy Roost AU CONTRAIRE ing in school nutrition programs over the past two years has increased by 10 percent. Many more households would qualify were cost of living adjustments made by region. Military families make up a significant proportion of this number. They get what’s called a basic allowance for housing (BAH). It is what they use to pay the mortgage or the rent and it’s equal to what everybody else receives in the country. If you’re stationed in San Diego — one of the highest COL regions in the country — the squeeze is on. So much for the problem. Now, what to do about it? 1) Email your representatives in Congress and urge them protect SNAP benefits; 2) Two cousins of mine still tend the family farm in Iowa. They need help in the form of subsidies. Big Ag is raking in millions. They probably don’t. If nothing else, the commodities title of the farm bill should be amended so that corporate welfare recipients be required to contribute some portion of their huge profits back to addressing hunger in this, the “greatest nation on Earth”; 3) Urge your representatives to recalibrate SNAP (food stamp) income eligibility and the BAH to allow for regional cost differences; 4) Ask your place of worship to follow the lead of the Common Ground Collaboration, three churches that provide emergency food to students living within the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District; 5) Increase the self-reliance of communities in providing for their own food needs by supporting local healthy and sustainable food and farms; and 6) Give thanks for all you have and all we in this nation have to offer others who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Government assistance not the best solution

ike Amy, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I’m thankful for a charitable and loving Creator who created this amazing world and all its wonders. I’m thankful for a wonderful and healthy family and that our daughter, Jennifer, just last week overcame her challenge with cancer and is on the road to a strong recovery. I’m thankful for the privilege to do work I love and for the opportunity to serve the world in a meaningful way through the use of my God-given gifts. Even though I agree with the two-thirds of Americans who believe our country is headed in the wrong direction and am frustrated with our political leadership at the federal and state level, I’m thankful that my family and I live in America. Thanksgiving reminds me that Americans are the most charitable people on Earth. So this Thanksgiving I’m torn between cherishing the American spirit and being fed up with our federal and state leadership. Every time I think I might be overly cynical or too disgusted with the current leadership in Washington, D.C., and Sacramento, they do something that drives me to more cynicism — like getting rid of the filibuster for presidential appointees last week. But one thing the Obama administration hasn’t mucked up is the farm bill — yet. Mostly because it is renewed every five years so this is their first real opportunity. I shudder to think what’s in store. Farm subsidies are good. They benefit everyone. They lower the economic risk for farmers and make food prices reasonable for all. I never cease to be amazed at the price of a cheeseburger at a fast food restaurant when I pause to think about all that went into making it available. Different farmers raised the wheat to make the flour and produce all the necessary ingredients then someone baked the bun. Next there’s the beef, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, mustard and ketchup, all produced separately, packaged and shipped to the restaurant. Then someone has to cook, assemble and wrap each sandwich. All this, and the sandwich costs us only a few bucks! Even though grocery prices soared during Mr. Obama’s first term, grocery prices are still a bargain. The farm bill is one of the root causes of this benefit and

Dick Lyles GET REAL helps to keep our cost of living low. I wholeheartedly agree with Amy that feeding the needy should always be one of our top priorities. I agree that it makes sense to adjust programs to local cost of living indices. Where I think we might disagree, however, is in the longterm benefit of becoming too reliant on programs such as SNAP. Programs such as SNAP address symptoms rather than causes. People need food stamps because they don’t have good jobs. They don’t have good jobs because private sector employment is anemic, many people are poorly educated by our union-dominated public education system, or other economic reasons. None of these problems are solved by giving food stamps to more people or adjusting allowances regionally according to cost of living. We should also recognize that the administration of these programs is being increasingly handed off to Obama-spawned organizations that are using the funds to broaden their political base and make more people dependent upon Democrats and the government. Rather than write to our legislative representatives to expand programs that are becoming more politicized, I say we should vote them all out of office until a majority of Americans are satisfied with the direction we’re heading and we see long-term solutions to basic problems.

more dangerous, especially when children are traveling to and from Chaparral Elementary. Robin Kaufman, Traffic and Transportation Committee chairwoman, said the increase was implemented to keep the road radar enforceable. It is based on the California Vehicle Code and California Speed Trap Law that requires segments of certain roads be evaluated every seven years and pending no other factors, be changed per the speed driven by the 85th percentile of motorists. Pomerado Road has multiple speed limits within blocks because the segments are evaluated in different years, so within the next couple of years other areas could see changes in their speed limits

too, she said. Carol Terzakis, a Gatewood Hills resident for 45 years, told the board that cars “barrel” over the rise and do not stop, even when a school bus has its stop sign out. “It’s a big accident waiting to happen,” Terzakis said, adding a friend died in an accident in that area several years ago. She also said the increased speed limit is causing traffic to back up on Pomerado Court since drivers have to wait a long time for an opportunity to exit. Gatewood Hills resident Ann Peabody said the increase is affecting the families of hundreds of children trying to access Pomerado Road to take youngsters to school. Peabody said she has to “floor”

her van to get onto Pomerado Road. “I can’t go zero to 50 when pulling out from Grandee and cars are flying,” she said, adding her children also cannot walk to the RB Swim & Tennis Club because they have to cross Pomerado Road. “We should challenge the findings and do a deeper study,” said resident Steve Reyno, citing the area’s golf cart zone, senior neighborhood and bus stops as factors to be considered. Several residents said they were not concerned about keeping Pomerado Road radar enforceable since they rarely see a police officer in the area to give speeding drivers citations and that with the higher speed limit, drivers are more likely to drive even faster.

NEWS JOURNAL

New leadership does not mean end to board’s strife BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK Rancho Bernardo Planning Board members’ disagreement over a need for decorum guidelines and a parliamentarian meant residents opposing speed limit increases on Pomerado Road had to wait more than an hour to be heard. The board’s ongoing internal strife by various factions that has plagued the volunteer group over the past few years was evident when it took almost 20 minutes to modify and approve the draft agenda at the Nov. 21 meeting. At issue were two possible voting items scheduled for late in the meeting. Item 11 was discussion and appointment of a parliamentarian who would advise the members when they potentially violate board bylaws, City Council Policy 600-24 — it outlines the standard operating procedures and responsibilities of the city’s recognized community planning groups — and Robert’s Rules of Order. Board Chairman Richard House, who was elected last spring, said there is no need for a parliamentarian. He said all members should be familiar with the rules and speak

up when issues arise. Others disagreed. Item 12 was forming guidelines for members to follow when communicating with one another verbally or in writing on non-agenda items and subjects. Member Lou Dell’Angela said there is a need, citing recent emails among members. “We need an agreement to solve communication issues,” Dell’Angela said, saying this includes who gets to talk with city officials, respond to emails and has a right to put things on the agenda. Some said this is already in — or should be — part of the board’s bylaws and first go to the bylaws committee. Both issues remained on the agenda and past 9 p.m. were discussed for more than half an hour again, during which time a few members left – one citing the late hour. After more than 20 minutes, the board deferred the parliamentarian discussion to another meeting. Also causing delay was the need to review and approve minutes dating back to August and discussion over the October meeting being “not official” since its agenda was not posted per Brown Act (California open meeting law) requirements.

REALIGNMENT OF LEAGUES APPROVED

Locals set for CIF State Cross Country Championships BY MICHAEL BOWER The longest race Kirsten Moody had run before this year was 1,600 meters for the Del Norte High track team. And she is pretty good at it, reaching the San Diego Section finals last year as a sophomore. The Del Norte cross country coaching staff kept its fingers crossed for two years hoping Moody would come out for the fall sport. She finally did this season and with the help of a few other new faces, the Nighthawks are now off to the state championships for the first time since 2010. Moody led Del Norte to a secondplace finish in Division III at the CIF San Diego Section Championships Saturday on Morley Field’s 2.75-mile course. She crossed the tape in 17 minutes, 22 seconds, good enough for 11th place. “Kirsten had never run a two-mile, even in track,” Del Norte coach Chris Jacobs said. “There was definitely a bit of a learning curve and it wasn’t until mid-season that she understood how

Katie Sammer, left, and Kirsten Moody will lead the Broncos and Nighthawks, respectively, into the state meet Saturday at Woodward Park in Fresno. Photos by Sherri Cortez to race and be more tactical, but she really turned a corner. She is just a tough competitor.” The Rancho Bernardo and Poway

girls along with the Nighthawks’ boys team also qualified for the state championships, which are on Saturday at Woodward Park’s 3.1-mile course in

Fresno. The action starts with the girls Division I race at 8:30 a.m. Annelise Perry (17:28) and Nikki Barrett (17:41) came in just behind Moody at the section finals. Barrett is one of just three on the team who are returning. The rest of the Nighthawks are newcomers. “It has been a huge influx of just new people,” Jacobs said. “There have been some huge improvements in confidence over the season.” The Titans’ girls finished in second place in Division II, while the Broncos’ girls finished in third at the section championships to advance to state. The Del Norte boys team limped into third place in Division III to qualify for its first state meet since 2010. Poway had four finishers in the top 20, led by senior Sophie Smith’s thirdplace finish in 16:30. Freshman Alex Calegari (16:48) came in eighth place, while Hannah Schwartz (17:04) came in 15th and Savannah Santiago (17:12) came in 19th. “Our goal has been to finish everySee STATE, Page B3

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

Calegari a fast riser for Poway High BY MICHAEL BOWER

ALEX CALEGARI

Any chance at making the varsity girls cross countr y team as a freshman at Poway High was slim since the program was returning seven runners. But there was no way coach Bruce Jackson could deny Alex Calegari. “We were aware of her talent because I knew what she had run as an eighth-grader,” Jackson said. “I knew she was capable of making the varsity team, but with seven returners it was going to be hard. I factored her in as being maybe the No. 6 runner.” That changed in a hurry. Calegari took little time establishing herself as the No. 2 runner for the Titans and one of the top freshmen in the San Diego County. She put herself on the map with a firstplace finish in the freshman race at the prestigious Mt. Sac Invite in late October. “I am really surprised with how well I have done,” said

I definitely didn’t expect to do as well as I have.” And when it comes to talking about her success, that is about the most you will get out of the humble youngster, who carries a 4.0 GPA and enjoys joking around with her coaches to keep things loose.

ALUMNI REPORT

Miller commits to Nevada Former Titans’ pitcher will sign with Wolf Pack next spring BY MICHAEL BOWER Right-handed pitcher Taylor Miller, a 2012 Poway High graduate and current player at Palomar College, recently verbally committed to the University of Nevada. The 6-foot, 2-inch, 180-pounder just missed the early signing period so he will not be able to officially ink his name on a scholarship with the Division I program until April 16, 2014. That’s just fine with Miller, who impressed the Nevada coaches while they were out scouting one of his teammates. Shor tly after, they came back to watch Miller again and then made the offer. “We were actually playing at Poway High and Nevada

Former Poway High pitcher Taylor Miller verbally committed to Nevada last week.  File photo was there watching one of my friends, and that night I pitched really well,” said Miller, who posted a sub 3.00 ERA over 18-plus innings last season at Palomar. “I went there to visit and it just blew me away and I realized I wanted to play baseball there. It is an up-and-coming

program with some real talent coming in.” Miller decided to go the community college route out of high school. His fastball is in the upper-80s and he has a solid curveball and changeup. He struggled with control while at Poway, but has come a long ways since then. “Going to Palomar really paid off,” Miller said. “It was the right route and I am really glad I took this road. It helped me a out a lot … I definitely am still learning new ways to throw and be more accurate because that was my problem in high school. I would be wild at times, but the pitching coach here has helped me out a lot. I have definitely gained my miles per hour and I can throw my offspeed for strikes more often.” Miller said he also had interest from Westmont College, Santa Barbara, UNC Asheville and a few others. He will be competing for a spot in the starting rotation at Palomar College in the spring.

What the four North County Conference leagues will look like starting in the 2014-2015 school year. The NCC’s 24 principals approved the realignment last week. Del Norte High will move from the Valley League to the Avocado East League for all sports. Mt. Carmel will move from the Valley League for football to the Palomar League. This guarantees the Sundevils and Titans will startup the Kiwanis Cup rivalry game again for at least two more years.

REALIGNMENT

Continued from PAGE B1 cess takes place every two years and considers factors such as geography, school size and competitive equity. The Nighthawks are currently in the Valley League, but will now help makeup the Avocado East League along with Mission Hills, San Dieguito Academy, San Marcos, Escondido and San Pasqual. The aforementioned teams is what the league will look like for all sports except football. The Avocado East League for football will include Del Norte, Mission Hills, Rancho Buena Vista, San Marcos and Vista. It was no secret that Del Norte was hoping to move to the Palomar League along with Mt. Carmel so all schools within the Poway Unified School District would be in one league. “I was a little disappointed to be honest,” Nighthawks athletic director Mike Giaime said. “I know it is a very tough thing to do and it is a real challenge to realign the leagues. Our school really wanted to be paired with other Poway Unified School District schools for proximity in regards to transportation costs and just natural rivalries.” If Del Norte would have landed in the Palomar League, budgeting for transportation costs would have been a breeze compared to what it will be now. The Nighthawks also would have had a better opportunity to make more money at home football games with the PUSD schools being close in proximity. “With these leagues we have gotten, I

am going to really have to do some creative things for the next few years to ensure we don’t have a deficit,” Giaime said. “But I can’t complain. It is not going to do any good and I don’t want to send the wrong message to our kids. This is who they’re asking us to play and we will strap up and go out and play. I just hope the community goes out and buys tickets. That is the only way our athletic programs will survive. If we can’t sell tickets, it becomes very difficult to manage our programs.” Rancho Bernardo athletic director Peggy Brose, who is on the nine-person North County Conference realignment committee, would have liked to see all the PUSD schools in one league. But she said there was some push back to that idea. “I don’t know if they have a good reason to not want us in the same league,” Brose said. “I think the thought is: ‘why do they get to be in one league? Are they something special?’ “You would think they would want us to be together so we can beat the snot out of each other … My feeling is teams in the same district should be in the same leagues as much as possible.” The Sundevils moving from the Valley League to the Palomar League for football ensures their rivalry with Poway in the Kiwanis Cup game will be back for two years. The Palomar League for all other sports will remain the same as it was this year.

CIF PREP GIRLS VOLLEYBALL

Titans’ underdog run ends with loss in Division I final BY MICHAEL BOWER After the fourth-seeded Poway High girls volleyball team upset No. 1 Scripps Ranch in the CIF San Diego Section Division I semifinals, it looked like this might be the year the Titans would capture their first crown since 2003. But waiting in the finals was No. 3 Rancho Buena Vista, which had just come off an upset of its own over No. 2 West Hills in the semifinals. And it was the Longhorns that stayed hot for the championship match. For the second straight year, Poway had to watch another team celebrate a Division I title, as Rancho Buena Vista beat the Titans 3-1 (29-27, 25-22, 17-25, 25-18) to capture its first championship since 1996 Friday night at Canyon Crest Academy. The Titans, which fell to Torrey Pines in last year’s Division I final, played right with the Longhorns (31-8) for pretty much the entire match. But Poway was unable to overcome 16 service errors and the outstanding ball control displayed by Rancho Buena Vista. “RBV deser ves it,” third-year Poway coach Breezy Ambort said. “That program always plays with heart and energy and that’s what wins you championships. I am happy for them because they were underdogs (in the semifinals), too. They have done a phenomenal job throughout their season as well, so they deserve it.”

CALEGARI

But once Palomar League play started, the Titans hit their stride and they knew the door was open to winning a Division I title with the newly created, eight-team Open Division taking powerhouse Torrey Pines out of the picture. “I think we had something to prove,” said senior setter Kelsey Horvath, who will play at DePaul University next year. “And knowing that we were in Division I and we

all very supportive and that made it a lot easier for me running varsity as a freshman.” The team reaped the benefits last Saturday at the CIF San Diego Section championships at Morley Field. Calegari placed eighth in her first Division II section meet, finishing the 2.75-mile course in 16 minutes, 48 seconds. It helped the Titans take second place as a team and qualify for Saturday’s state championships. For her efforts, Calegari is the Frozen Ropes Athlete of the Week. “I am proud of my finish because it shows all of the hard work I put in throughout the season has paid off,” she said. “But I am really proud of the team because I think everyone really pulled through and did a great job to get that second-place finish.” Calegari often surprises Jackson with her ability to finish strong. There have been many times this year when Jackson took a look at Calegari after the mile marker and figured there was no way she would be able to keep pace. “She is very mentally tough and that is something she just naturally has,” Jackson said. “There have been several races where I have been yelling at her during the race and I tell my coaches that she is just going to die because it looks like she is falling apart. But the next thing I know she has not only maintained, but has gained grown a mile later.” Calegari is hoping to finish the season strong now. She and the Titans ran Woodward Park, the state championship course in Fresno, earlier this year at the Clovis Invite. Calegari finished in 19:01 and is hoping to better that on Saturday. Freshmen will often get caught in the fast start and fade at the end of the race at the state championships. Calegari is aware of it and says she is just going to stick to her strategy without getting caught up in the moment. “I won’t get caught too much in that high-speed start,” she said. “I am just going to try to run how I have been running all season, but hopefully a little faster since it is the state meet.”

STATE

had a chance to win and the opportunity to play well and advance to the championship turned things around.” The Titans will lose eight seniors to graduation: McKenzie Hall, Kendall Sieber, Asia Pitzer, Horvath, Taylor Lapitka, April Luther, Danielle Isbell and Sydney Snyder. Ambort believes the group will remember much more than finishing runner-up in Division I two years in a row. “I hope they cherish the experiences they got the last few years being in the program,” she said. “I hope they learned some life lessons … They will not remember the scores, but they will remember the team bonding — sleepovers, lunches and the goofy things they did together. That is what they will remember; not that they lost.” Horvath wrapped up her stellar career with 35 assists, while Hall and Taryn Atkinson had 11 kills apiece. Sieber chipped in with nine kills. Poway trailed 2-0 before giving its fans some hope with a 25-17 victory in Game 3. But the Longhorns used an 8-1 run to take control of Game 4 before putting the Titans away. Still, to end your season playing for the Division I title two years in a row is nothing to hang your head about. “It is definitely an accomplishment,” Horvath said. “I don’t look at it in a negative way at all. It is an honor to be here. Not every team gets to play in the CIF final. We played great volleyball and they just played better.”

place finish at the section meet was not exactly what they were hoping to do. Eric Inumerable has been trying to get back to form in a hurry since he had to take four days off of training due to an injury. Meanwhile, fouryear runner Mitch Manis, Mark Quiroz and Evan Jameson have picked up the slack. Manis took fourth in Division III at the section championships, completing the 3.1-mile course in 16:44. Quiroz (17:10) came in 13th and Jameson (17:22) 21st. “Advancing to state was definitely a silver lining, but we expected to run better,” Jacobs said. “It’s good to know we still have (Saturday) to come back and tr y to beat those teams that beat us.”

We were third in Division I last year and this year we took second in Division II.

Owner of gun that discharged, killing child will stand trial BY KELLY WHEELER SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A Scripps Ranch man whose loaded firearm discharged and mortally wounded a neighbor boy as the fourth-grader and the defendant’s 9-year-old daughter played with the weapon in the garage must stand trial on involuntary manslaughter and other felony charges, a judge ruled on Nov. 20. Todd Conrad Francis, 56, faces seven years and eight months behind bars if convicted, said Deputy District Attorney Matthew Dix. San Diego police said 10-year-old Eric Klyaz was handling a 9 mm gun in the defendant’s garage at a condominium complex near Scripps Poway Parkway in the 10900 block of Ivy Hill Drive on June 4, along with Francis’ 9-year-old daughter, Cierra, when the firearm went off. The Dingeman Elementary School student suffered a bullet wound to the chest and died at Rady Children’s Hospital a short time later. Francis’ wife, Susan, testified today that she got home around 3:30 p.m. and asked her 15-year-old son, Chad, to watch his younger sister while she ran an errand. About 20 minutes later, the witness

said she got a call from Chad telling her to come back home because police were at the home and someone had been hurt. Chad Francis testified that he was upstairs on a computer and had no idea that Eric had come over to play with his sister. The teenager testified that he had seen a large gun case in the garage but had never seen a gun. Mark Jones testified that he was finishing up fixing a neighbor’s garage door about 4:15 p.m. when he heard a shot and saw Cierra running out of the Francis’ garage, screaming. Jones said he saw the motionless victim on the ground and started CPR. “There was a gun on a sofa,” Jones testified. The witness said a 911 operator told him to remove the gun from the garage, which he did. “I was concerned when I moved it, because it was cocked,” Jones testified. A San Diego police officer testified that Francis told him that the gun was hidden and was sure it wasn’t loaded. Francis told the officer that he should have secured the gun better. “He said, ‘If that kid dies, I don’t want to live anymore,’” the officer testified.

Tasty Breakfast Recipes for the Holiday Season The holidays are all about hearty and delicious meals shared with friends and family. And while those big afternoon and evening meals may get most of the attention, there are many ways to make breakfast more festive without added stress. Whether you’re entertaining a big group of out of town guests, or just feeding the family, give breakfast center stage. Ditch the cold cereal and bland eye openers, and greet everyone with something special in the morning.  You can balance out those rich desserts and extra helpings at holiday dinners and start the day off with easy-to-prepare, “better for you” breakfast choices by following a few simple tips: • Instead of pork or beef breakfast meats, try healthier meats that are naturally lower in fat, such as chicken. • Look for ingredients that are lower

in fat and sodium, with no artificial ingredients or additives. For example, al fresco all natural’s chicken sausage has 70 percent less fat and 30 percent less sodium than pork sausage, without any gluten, artificial ingredients, nitrates, nitrites or MSG. • For quick meals, opt for products that come pre-cooked, allowing you less time in the kitchen and more valuable time with loved ones during this busy season. • Save time by assembling the ingredients into a breakfast casserole with eggs, vegetables and chicken sausage the night before, then just pop in the oven in the morning. • Or, for a simpler breakfast that is big on taste, use naturally-flavored pre-cooked breakfast sausage varieties like Country-style, Apple Maple or Wild Blueberry. With just a few minutes of browning, they can be served on a sandwich for a quick,

Tips to Host a Memorable Holiday Feast Want to be the host with the most this holiday season? Holiday entertaining can be particularly tricky, as everything has to be just right. But you don’t have to let it stress you out, say experts. “From setting the table, to creating a scrumptious dessert station, you can better impress your guests if you are prepared,” says Jessica Joyce, spokeswoman for Bed Bath & Beyond. As you make your plans, consider these helpful tips from Joyce for putting together the perfect holiday meal and creating an inviting atmosphere all season long: Remove the Guess Work The key to reducing stress around holiday entertaining is to plan. Start putting together a guest list and menu ahead of time. Determine the hors d'ourves, drinks, main course, side dishes, coffee bar and desserts. Turkey Talk Once the menu is selected, make sure you have the right kitchenware to prepare the meal -- especially the turkey. Turkey essentials include a roasting pan, meat thermometer and gravy separator. Keep in mind that every turkey is different, so your roaster should be able to handle even a 25-pound holiday bird. Your serving plate will need to be large enough to accommodate your turkey, and there should be enough additional room on the plate to surround it with garnish. Mix and Match Dinnerware When it comes to serving guests, it’s helpful

to get assorted dinnerware in both white and clear so you can mix and match as needed. Be sure that you have enough of the right glassware for serving cocktails when guests first arrive. Have a water and wine glass on the table for each guest to use during the meal. Presentation Consider how you’d like to present your meal to your guests. Whether it’s a sit-down dinner or buffet style, your food will be the main focus. A triple slow cooker is great for a buffet. It will let you cook, keep your food warm and allow your guests to help themselves all at once. Create a ‘Tablescape’ You can make a great impression before your guests even sit down to eat by crafting a beautiful setting. Create ambience by adorning the holiday dinner table and buffet area with seasonally inspired décor and infusing pops of color with the tablecloth, metallic chargers, napkins and fresh flowers. Mood Lighting For a finishing touch, set the mood with candles by using a mix of tea lights and candlesticks on the table at varying heights.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

POMERADO NEWSPAPER GROUP

A look back at popular toys from years past Many parents have spent time during the holiday season on endless quests for the perfect gift for their children. Many gifts have earned "must-have" status over the years, and although many of these gifts are forgotten by the time the next holiday season comes around, certain products have remained timeless. Some of these more memorable products have even been resurrected into newer, modern-day versions of their previous selves. Here's a look at some of the toys that have made their mark over the last several decades. • Rubik's Cube: The Rubik's Cube reached the height of its popularity during the 1980s, when the colorful game puzzle was mass-marketed to the public. Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Erno Rubik actually invented what he dubbed the "Magic Cube" a decade prior. Since the product's inception, millions of Rubik's Cubes have been sold across the globe, making it one of the top-selling puzzles and toys. • Cabbage Patch Kids: Adults stormed stores in the mid 1980s for Cabbage Patch Kids, which became one of the most popular toys of the decade. Designed by art student Xavier Roberts, Cabbage Patch Kids began as dolls called "Little People." The dolls were marketed with a fantastical story about a cabbage patch in a magical valley, where dolls were born and awaited their adoption into loving homes. Cabbage Patch Kids have been produced by a number of different toy manufacturers through the years, and shoppers can still find new incarnations at stores today. • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles started as a comic designed

to parody established popular comics of the early 1980s. The concept of genetically mutated turtles who possessed ninja skills quickly caught on and the TMNT franchise expanded to television shows and scores of complementary merchandise. • Beanie Babies: Ty Inc. introduced a series of plush toys filled with tiny plastic pellets instead of traditional polyester stuffing in 1993. These pellets made the dolls flexible and cuddly, which played a role in their popularity. Throughout the 1990s, children collected as many of the Beanie Babies as they could, though some of the dolls were more coveted than others. Ty ceased production of Beanie Babies in 1999 with a bear called "The End," but it wasn't long before new Beanie Babies were manufactured for a new generation of children to collect. • Tickle Me Elmo: The hottest toy of the 1996 giving season was Tickle Me Elmo, a plush doll based on the beloved Sesame Street monster. When prompted, Elmo would laugh, giggle and gyrate to the delight of kids and adults alike. Tickle Me Elmo caused mass frenzy at stores during the 1996 holiday season, as shoppers swarmed toy stores to get their hands on the top toy of the year. • Nintendo DS: The Nintendo DS, first offered in 2004, was the first Nintendo console released in North America before it was released in Japan. With its dual screens (the lower being a touchscreen) and portability factor, the handheld device became one of the most popular gifts for young gamers. (StatePoint)

DID YOU KNOW? It is said that, in 1941 the Ford motor company produced an experimental automobile with a plastic body composed of 70% cellulose fibers from hemp. The car body could absorb blows 10 times as great as steel without denting. The car was designed to run on hemp fuel. Because of the ban on both hemp and alcohol, the car was never mass produced.
