School districts approve bonds for fall ballot BY KATHY DAY With matching 4-1 votes, trustees in the Del Mar Union and San Dieguito Union High School Districts moved ahead last week with plans for general obligation bonds they agreed are essential to keeping them on the leading edge of quality education.
■ SDJA student wins at Google Science Fair. Page 13
Each of the measures that will be on the Nov. 6 ballot asks voters for approval to issue bonds to upgrade campus facilities and technology and to improve safety and security. Both measures use the words “21st century” education in their ballot language. Both will require a 55 per-
cent majority to pass. The local measures will be joined by competing education funding measures at the state level and possibly a bond measure in the MiraCosta Community College District, whose trustees are set to decide on their own GO bond on Aug. 2. Despite their concerns,

trustees of the two districts said they would support each others’ efforts to pass their bonds. Those other school measures were among the reasons cited by the trustees in each district who voted not to put them on the ballot: John Salazar in San Dieguito and Doug Perkins in
Del Mar. In seeking the trustees’ votes, the heads of both districts said the funds are needed because state funds have dried up and the districts are pushing the limits on their own budgets. As San Dieguito SuperSee BONDS, Page 15

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Solana Beach, on July 25, became the second of several small cities in San Diego County to order a November election for an initiative that would allow medical marijuana dispensaries, as well as the city’s regulation and taxation of them. Under the state’s initiative process, the city had the choice of either passing the ordinance brought forth by the Patient Care Association or sending it to ballot after the
advocacy group collected signatures of the necessary 10 percent — or about 800 — of Solana Beach voters. The Solana Beach council voted unanimously to hold an election. Similar petitions have been validated in Lemon Grove, Encinitas and La Mesa, and the Del Mar City Council faced the same choice on July 20 when it became the first city in the county to put the issue on the ballot. See MARIJUANA, Page 6
BY CLAIRE HARLIN The results of a recent survey show half of Del Mar voters support the City Council’s proposed downtown revitalization plan, and for some officials and residents, that’s not reassuring enough to put the measure on the November ballot. The survey, presented July 30 at a special council meeting held at Indigo Hotel, showed that 52 percent of voters support the plan, which involves the certification of new development standards and mobility fea-
tures such as roundabouts. The survey, conducted by True North Research, also revealed that 36 percent of voters do not support the plan, and the rest were not sure. The top reason for opposition was roundabouts, and the second-highest point of concern was that the plan may increase traffic along Camino del Mar and on neighboring streets. Tom Shepard, a local political consultant who more than a decade ago led a support campaign for the

Planners voice opposition to school board regarding antenna at CCA BY CLAIRE HARLIN The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board voted unanimously on July 26 to send a letter to the San Dieguito Union High School District expressing grave concern about the proposed installation of a wireless communication facility atop a building at Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) in Carmel Valley. The antenna facility was approved by the city on July 2, and the school board was docketed to discuss the installation on July 26,
but postponed the item until the school board’s Aug. 16 meeting. “They didn’t want to consider it at the same time as a bond measure,” said planning board member Laura Copic. “I want to get this letter approved so they have it in their hands at the time they consider this project.” The letter outlines a number of concerns, such as lack of communication with the parents, teachers See ANTENNA, Page 15

Release of STAR test scores delayed BY KATHY DAY Because of â€œsecurity breachesâ€? â€” or as Rick Schmitt, the assistant superintendent for educational services put it, â€œcreative use of social mediaâ€? â€“ STAR test scores for the San Dieguito Union High School District students will be about a month late. Schmitt told school trustees on July 26 that while the problems that included students using smart phones to share questions from the standardized tests did not occur in the local district, a number of districts will
have their scores invalidated. However, he added that San Dieguito officials â€œself-reportedâ€? a couple of cases where students took pictures of the exam cover. â€œETS (the Educational Testing Service) is taking extra time to investigate,â€? Schmitt said. Parents were set to receive notification this week that the results â€” usually due in late July or early August â€” will not get them until â€œaround the last week of August.â€?
Candidate filing deadline approaching Candidates have begun to pull papers to run for local school district elections in November. The deadline for candidates to file is Aug. 10. In the Del Mar Union School District board, trustees Comischell Rodriguez and Doug Perkinsâ€™ seats are up for election. In the Solana Beach School District, the seats up for grabs belong to Arthur Palkowitz and Richard Leib; Leib is the only one to pull papers so far. Hereâ€™s a look at how the candidate list is shaping up so far: San Dieguito Union High School District (vote for two)
Beth Hergesheimer, incumbent Joyce Dalessandro, incumbent Del Mar Union School District (vote for two) Alan Kholos Solana Beach School District (vote for two) Richard Leib (incumbent) James Summers Julie Union Aug. 10 is also the candidate filing period for special districts (fire, water, community planning, etc.) For more information on candidate filing deadlines and procedures, visit www.sdcounty.ca.gov
â€˜Shopper Shuttleâ€™ to Del Mar, Solana Beach available Racing fans who want to shop or dine in the adjacent communities of Del Mar and/or Solana Beach have a free and easy way to do so now using the new â€œShopper Shuttlesâ€? that start and return from or to the fairgrounds bus compound area alongside the trackâ€™s Mission Tower Building. The shuttles â€“ one that goes south into the town of Del Mar, the other that goes north into Solana Beach â€“ run each racing day between 5 and 10 p.m. Those wanting to leave their cars parked at the racetrack
and be ferried to either of those locations can do so. The Del Mar shuttle basically follows the cityâ€™s main street of Camino Del Mar as far as Hotel Indigo, then returns to the track along Coast Blvd. The Solana Beach shuttle travels through the Cedros St. district to the train station, then returns on Hwy 101. (A complete shuttle route with stops for both services can by accessed at delmarracing. com â€“ under â€œSeason Infoâ€? and â€œShuttle Information.â€?)
Ashley Falls principal selected for new district role â€˘ Chris Delehanty replaces Petersen as new principal at Ashley Falls
BY KATHY DAY Shelley Petersen, who has been the principal at Ashley Falls Elementary School since 2005, has been promoted to the district office. Del Mar Union School District trustees named her as the new assistant superintendent of instructional services at their July 25 meeting. District superintendent Holly McClurg, who was presiding over her first meeting since assuming her new post on July 1, said Petersen is known for â€œher love of children and support for teachersâ€? and noted that they are looking for her to lead the districtâ€™s instructional programs along â€œwonderful new paths.â€? Shelley Petersen Prior to joining the Del Mar Union School District, Petersen was a principal, assistant principal, and teacher at the Vista Unified School District. Trustees also announced that Chris Delehanty will take Petersenâ€™s spot as principal at the elementary school. He started in the district as a long-term substitute and taught at Sage Canyon School before becoming assistant principal at Ocean Air, Sage Canyon and Torrey Hills schools. In saluting Petersen and Delehanty in their new roles, McClurg said, â€œWe love to build our own leadership capacity.â€?
Mysterious green foam returns to local beaches A harmless, green foam is once again washing ashore on San Diego County beaches. Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography have determined that the bright green color is caused by a bloom of phytoplankton, Tetraselmis spp. This green flagellate is roughly 10 micrometers in size, and has been found in concentrations as dense as 15 million cells per liter of seawater. On July 23, green particulate matter (Tetraselmis sp.) was found floating in the water in local beach communities. The foam grew more prevalent last week, though it has been observed off and on since the first week of July. Itâ€™s patchy distribution makes it visible only at some beaches, though it becomes more apparent in the afternoon when the wind and waves mix the surface waters.
Tetraselmis has bloomed each summer since 2009 with blooms lasting from one week to several months. There are no documented health hazards with swimming or fishing in areas of Tetraselmis blooms. Whereas the bloom looks rather ominous, it is harmless in nature. Conditions that may attribute to a bloom such as this would be temperature, surf conditions, or light. Which are the contributing factors exactly, and why? It is a question researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography are working to discover.

Paper or plastic not an option in Solana Beach starting Aug. 9 • Outreach efforts taking place across the city BY CLAIRE HARLIN It’s time for shoppers in Solana Beach to get their reusable shopping bags ready. Starting on Aug. 9, they will either have to use their own bags or pay 10 cents each for paper bags at the grocery store, food vendor and pharmacy check-out counters. The change follows the Solana Beach City Council’s May 9 adoption of the Plastic Bag Reduction Ordinance, which the city sees as an expression of its desire to conserve resources and reduce emissions, waste, beach litter and marine pollution. According to the city, about 160 of 461 local establishments distribute a total of about 6.5 million single-use carry-out bags each year. The ordinance first goes into effect for larger establishments, such as Vons, CVS, Sprouts and a couple of convenience stores. On Nov. 9, the more than 100 smaller retail establishments, vendors and non-profit vendors will follow suit. The Solana Beach Farmers Market will also make the shift in three months. City spokesman Dan King said the city has overall received positive feedback about the ordinance and has been working closely with retailers to prepare them for the shift. “We’ve met with all the affected stores and given them flyers and posters,” said King, adding that city staff members and Clean and Green Committee volunteers will hold a kickoff event for the ban on Aug. 9 at Fletcher Cove during the summer concert series. There they will offer information on the ban and distribute reusable bags. City staff will also be providing bags and education on Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Vons, Sprouts and Solana Beach’s two CVS
stores. On Aug. 12, volunteers will spend the morning at St. James and St. Leo Catholic Community, Solana Beach Presbyterian Church and North Coast Fellowship. In July, the city exempted restaurants from the ordinance after threat of litigation regarding a possible violation of the California Retail Code. This exemption is being deliberated in courts statewide. The ban does not apply to bags used for newspapers, dry-cleaning, produce and bulk items and is limited to bags used at the point of sale. Amy Campbell, a manager of Sprouts at 659 Lomas Santa Fe, said the store is working on a reusable bag giveaway program to ease stress on customers for the first few weeks of the ban. The details of the program have yet to be finalized, she said, but cashiers have been reminding customers about the ban. Exemptions to the ban include those participating in the California Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and city-approved businesses where undue hardship exists. Nonprofit vendors are exempt for the first year if using donated (used) plastic or paper bags. Any person or establishment that does not adhere to the ordinance could receive a fine of up to $250 or a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 or six months in prison. To report those not in compliance, call the city’s code enforcement department at (858) 720-2414 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the ban, refer to the ordinance at www.ci.solana-beach.ca.us.
Whole Foods set to open at Flower Hill in early 2013 BY CLAIRE HARLIN The opening of the new Whole Foods at the Flower Hill Promenade has been pushed back from November to the beginning of 2013, said property manager Rose Jabin of Protea Properties, which owns the 14-acre center. Exterior construction of the future upscale natural food retailer, as well as a 400-space parking structure, a 28,000-square-foot medical space and 8,000 square feet of retail space should be wrapped up by the end of August, Jabin said. Interior improvements to the Whole Foods, such as a full wine and beer tasting area, will not wrap up in time to open before Whole Foods’ blackout period, which dictates no new stores open during the holidays. “This is going to be very different from other Whole Foods stores,” said Jabin of the $25 million expansion and renovation project. “We will also have to wait for them to get their alcohol license.” Flower Hill has also added a handful of new tenants amid major upgrades to the existing structure. Since March, Pigtails & Crewcuts,
a kids’ salon, and Opus Bank have opened. Venissimo Cheese moved to a bigger space and is now offering an expanded lunch menu as well as beer and wine (with a $5 corkage fee). Also every month, the cheese shop offers a wine and cheese tasting class, with the first class, “Making Mozzarella and Ricotta,” taking place Aug. 16 at 6:30 p.m. Due to open in August are Chipotle and Corepower Yoga. There has been a lot of interest in the space of the former Paradise Grill, said Jabin, with at least four interested parties getting tours last week. Flower Hill management would love to see a female-friendly, “cafe-ish” place to go have a glass of wine lease that space, Jabin said. “We’d like to see something like Cucina Urbana or Cafe Chloe, something with
that feel,” said Jabin. “We have a lot of men’s restaurants already, like Milton’s.” She said she attributes the closing of Paradise Grill to the “scary” economic climate for restaurants right now, however, she thinks the renovation is a major incentive to bring new business to Flower Hill. “I’ve been in contact with the [Del Mar] Highlands too, and they said construction is tough but afterward the tenants are very happy,” she said. The construction to the existing building will include a complete facade overhaul, with the intention of giving a “new look and feel” and being consistent with the new construction, Jabin said. Protea is raising the facade 6 to 8 feet, but the change does not add square footage and is purely cosmetic, she said. This is the biggest renovation to date for the 40-year-old Flower Hill Promenade, which Protea has owned for 10 years. “It needed a major overhaul,” said Jabin, “a little bit of everything.” For more information about the shops, visit www. flowerhill.com.

VOTE continued from page 1 Del Mar Plaza development, said there are a few red flags raised from the survey. “If there’s any uncertainty, people tend to default to a ‘no’ vote and the intensity of positive arguments is less than the intensity of negative arguments,” said Shepard, who served as mayor of Del Mar in the 1970s. He added that the city is in a “problematic position in getting this measure approved by voters, as evidenced by this survey.” A number of residents and one member of the council strongly suggested
delaying the vote and giving the community more time to get information. Officials also brought up the idea of installing “demonstration” roundabouts in the residential beach colony area along Camino del Mar north of downtown to test their operation before installing them in the Village. “Is there any way we can sequence this and use more time to test roundabouts for mobility?” asked Councilman Terry Sinnott. “If it goes to vote now we are risking the whole package.” Sinnott made clear that he thinks the plan will be successful if implemented, but he is worried that forcing it on the ballot might result

in the failure of a good plan. The council discussed “splitting up” the measure and moving forward with development standards such as floor-area ratio and building height, while holding off on mobility measures such as roundabouts. There were mixed feelings expressed on this option. City Manager Scott Huth said postponing a vote on the traffic-related elements of the plan will allow for further analyzing. Planning and Community Development Kathy Garcia said, however, that some members of the community have expressed that the success of the development part of the plan is dependent on chang-
es to mobility, and vice versa. “Some people think the two are intertwined,” she said. Councilman Don Mosier called the survey “daunting.” “Clearly our outreach has not convinced citizens this is a good plan,” he said. “It will be a very close election, but I’m not willing to give up on a very good plan.” Mosier said he doesn’t want to take roundabouts out of the plan, and he said he’s not convinced delaying the vote will garner more positive support. “If voters don’t want this, then that’s how they will respond,” he said.
If the council decides to delay the vote until next spring, it could cost the city upward of $100,000 to hold a special election. Shepard said there would most likely be a much lower turnout for a special election, but the electorate will be more informed than that of a general election with a longer ballot. “A lot of the people who would show up in November would not participate in a special election,” he said. Other options include combining this item with another special election if one comes up in the future, or waiting until the primaries in June 2014. “It’s hard to find anyone
federal law, which states marijuana consumption is illegal. Critics have also said the ordinance should include more enforcement tools, such as inspections, product testing and recordkeeping. “The issue here is not to debate the pros or cons or validity of use of medical marijuana,” said Councilman Tom Campbell. “That’s not what’s before us. What’s relevant today is that we have two options and we need to make a decision with how to go forward.” Councilman Mike Nichols said there is always the option of a post-election challenge if the initiative passes in November and there are discrepancies with the ordinance, but as for now, “the public put this on the ballot and the public should have a right to vote on it.”
Mayor Joe Kellejian shared his personal thoughts, that medical marijuana should be dispensed not through cooperatives but through facilities such as established clinics and hospitals. “My job on the council is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the community, and I don’t believe putting this type of business — and it is a business — in Solana Beach will in any way protect our community,” said Kellejian, adding that he will work with every resource he has to oppose putting dispensaries in Solana Beach. Councilwoman Lesa Heebner thanked the dozens of people who shared their very passionate and personal stories with the council. “It will be your job to make those cases again during the election,” she said.
continued from page 1 Like Del Mar, Solana Beach council members were not unanimous in their support for the initiative but expressed that they had no choice. The council heard more than two hours of testimony for and against medical pot, both from patients whose lives have greatly improved from medical marijuana and opponents who fear heightened marijuana use by young people, among other concerns. Much concern from officials, however, is centered around the wording of the ordinance. The ordinance imposes a 2.5 percent sales tax on medical marijuana, when state sales tax law mandates a uniform sales tax of no more than 1 percent on all goods. The ordinance is also in violation of

Local resident helps raise money for nonprofit high above San Diego BY ROB LEDONNE Local resident Jerry Morris was looking for a way to give back to the community he loves so much. An alumni of UCSD, Morris is the CEO of NextLevel Internet, a business that caters to the internet needs of local companies. Every year, NextLevel chooses three different nonprofits to support and it was in 2008 when a unique kind of charity came onto his radar: Kids Included Together, or KIT which provides training to community organizations to include children with or without disabilities. Founded in 1997, KIT “has trained 25,000 youth providers in the best practices of inclusion” (according to its official website www.kitonline.org), and is open to all kids. More than a quarter of a million youth in San Diego have been through the program at some point in the past 15 years. “It’s a really neat program and it resonates with our company,” explains Morris on his interest in KIT and charitable organizations in general. “The power of giving back is simple. The more you give the more you get — financially, emotionally and otherwise. To be able to be in a position to give is a great thing.” It’s that urge to give back which got Morris involved in KIT’s centerpiece fundraiser dubbed “Over the Edge,” a one-of-akind event that shatters any preconceived notions of a typical stuffy charity event. Set up to be high profile and give a thrill to donors, Over the Edge repels those who donate
down San Diego’s Manchester Grand Hyatt. Located downtown, the Hyatt is the tallest waterfront building on the West Coast of the United States. Repellers start out 33 stories above the ground, or 357 feet, and make their way down — some quicker than others. “The event itself is terrifying for me, I’m afraid of RSF’s Jerry Morris heights,” admits Morris. “But it’s very neat, exciting, fun, and a great cause... that combination makes it a unique event to get involved with.” The event, which is in its fourth year, has raised a nice chunk of money for KIT so far, and organizers are hoping this year is no exception. In order to boost donations, Morris is taking part in something ominously called “Toss the Boss” during this year’s event. Said Morris: “To raise extra money, we used to hold a raffle, but recently they said they were looking for more CEOs to participate in Over the Edge. So for every CEO that signs up, NextLevel will donate
Solana Beach Family Camp Out is Aug. 4-5
Over the Edge repels those who donate down San Diego’s Manchester Grand Hyatt. $250 to get their own fundraising teams started. Our goal collectively is to get 10 or 20 CEOs involved.” CEOs who have already signed up to repel range the gamut from the heads of El Cajon’s Ideal Manufactured Homes, Tierrasanta’s CentrexIT, and real estate agency Cassidy Turley, just to name a few. “We’re hoping to get more CEOs willing to do this,” said Morris. You don’t have to repel or attend the event to contribute; organizers are also hoping for donations through their website as well. For anyone hesitant about getting involved in such an adrenaline rush, Morris explains that little to no training and preparation is needed beforehand (“except a few sleepless nights,”) and that the whole event is perfectly safe. “I would say to anyone to go for it,” he explains. “Do something thrilling and fun and for good of the community at the same time. Make it happen. Nobody’s gotten hurt doing it; and it’s for a great cause, so why not?” To find more information about the Over the Edge event, or if you’d like to participate or donate, visit www. overtheedgeforkit.com/

Del Mar resident turns passion for golf and horse racing into vocation, avocation BY JULIE SARNO Del Mar resident Paul Galli makes his living from golf and his hobby is horse racing. He is a partner in Pro-Sport Management, which serves as agents and managers for golfers, including 2012 Masters Golf Tournament winner Bubba Watson. Galli owns a home which overlooks the Fairgrounds and the racetrack, a view he treasures during racing season. While growing up in Australia, Galli learned to play golf. He loved the game, played well, and like so many golfers, dreamed of being on the tour. So after high school, he played on the amateur circuit for six months, enough to realize that there were many golfers better than he was. Galli then went to Monash University in Melbourne and graduated with an “Honours Law” degree and a commerce degree. With his law degree, he was able to help many of his golfing peers with their contracts, sponsorships and endorsements. What began as helping his friends quickly evolved into a business. He incorporated Pro-Sport Management in 1988 in Melbourne. Golf is much more lucrative in the United States and Galli knew if he wanted to continue and grow his business, he had to come to the United States. In 1994, he began an affiliation with Cornerstone Sports, working in Dallas. Later, he moved to Scottsdale. According to Galli, Scottsdale is a good place for young Australians to come and learn about the way golf is played in America. Galli scouted up and coming young golfers in Australia. He would bring some to Europe or the United States. Galli still spends time in Australia each year, observing young golfers who come up through the Australian Institute of Sport or the Victorian Institute of Sport. Currently, Galli represents three golfers: Watson, Geoff Ogilvy and Aaron Baddeley. Pro-Sport has managed the latter two for more than 12 years, unusual in the sports management business. Galli owns ProSport Management in partnership with Jens Beck. “It’s like having two Kentucky Derby winners in a three-horse stable,” smiled

Local resident’s company providing medicinal mushrooms to equine Olympic competitors BY KELLEY CARLSON A mushroom production facility in San Marcos appears to be growing for the gold in this summer’s Olympic Games. M2 Ingredients develops and processes 10 species of medicinal mushrooms, which are then distributed as nutritional supplements and food additives for humans and animals. Its sister company, Matrixhealthwerks, offers several lines of products, including Pet Matrix, Mi Matrix and Equine Matrix — the latter which is currently being given to some horses in the Summer Games, according to the companies’ CEO, Dr. Sandra Carter. “Unlike synthesized products, our natural ingredients have a balanced and bioavailability that can only be found in a whole food product, complete with enzymes, antioxidants, chelated minerals and vitamins — particularly vitamin D and the B vitamins,” said Carter of her Matrixhealthwerks products. The 57-year-old Del Mar resident is a strong advocate of medicinal mushrooms, citing benefits such as energy, inflammation, liver detox, cognitive function, cholesterol and blood sugar control. Among the mushrooms grown at Carter’s M2 Ingredients facility is cordyceps, which has been used in Chinese traditional medicine for thousands of years. In 2009, TV personality Dr. Mehmet Oz listed the species as one of the “Top Five Best Cures from Around the Globe,” as it has been known to fight different types of skin cancers and breast cancer. Olympic athletes have also used it as per-
formance enhancers. Oz has also done segments on other species that are produced at M2, such as the king trumpet, one of the “Best Superfoods for Anti-Aging,” and on maitake, for its role in weight control. Health expert Dr. Andrew Weil also touts medicinal mushrooms, a key component of his “Anti-inflammatory Food Pyramid.” Carter has been involved in preventive medicine for almost 35 years. Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, she received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Manitoba and a master’s degree from McGill University in Montreal, both in the field of exercise physiology. In the United States, she earned another master’s degree — in public health —from UCLA and a doctorate in preventive medicine from USC. Over the years, Carter participated in large population studies supported by the Center for Disease Control and National Institutes of Health. She gained corporate health program development and administration experience through her work with the American Heart Association and UCLA Center for Health Enhancement. And as the administrative director for Tahoe Forest Health System, Carter had oversight for multiple departments, including Physical Therapy, Community Health, Diabetic Health, Health Promotions, Occupational Health, Sports Performance and Oncology, and was instrumental in the development of a new women’s diagnostic service center. It was when Carter attended the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine confer-
Dr. Sandra Carter ence in 2009 that she was introduced to mycologist Steve Farrar, who had more than 30 years of experience in growing and processing mushrooms. Her interest in his field was piqued. “I saw an incredible opportunity,” Carter said. She began helping Farrar with the refinement of products for dietary supplements and eventually formed M2 Ingredients. Around the same time, Carter also established Matrixhealthwerks. Both companies operate in San Marcos, next to the Hokto Kinoko Co. mushroom cultivation center. There are 10 people employed at M2, whose scientific advisory board includes author and editor Dr. Sheldon Hendler and immunologist Dr. Dennis J. Carlo; and eight are at Matrixhealthwerks. M2 Ingredients produces and processes mushroom mycelial biomass and fruit body products through solid state fermentation methodologies
at the “Certified 100 Percent Organic” facility under highly controlled, hygienic conditions. The products take 45 days to three months to grow, depending on the species. Matrixhealthwerks incorporates the mushrooms into nutritional supplements through its Equine Matrix line for horses; Mi Matrix items, designed for people; and Pet Matrix products, which aid dogs and cats. The Equine Matrix line seems to be gaining popularity among performance horses. The first notable success story was Street Sense, the 2007 Kentucky Derby winner, who was given the product before it was rebranded. Although the horse has since been retired from racing, his jockey, Calvin Borel, continues to use Mi Matrix supplements, according to Carter. She noted that performance horses’ diets are very controlled and regulated by trainers and grooms, so “when you add one variable, it’s easier to attribute the change in behavior and performance.” It wasn’t long after Street Sense’s Derby victory before the product started receiving attention in other equine disciplines. One person who took notice was German dressage star Isabell Werth, an Olympic and World Championship medalist. “I was skeptical at first, but now am absolutely convinced,” said Werth, who is not paid to endorse the company, Carter emphasized. “Our horses are more vital and concentrated. ECP Matrix (Equine Calm and Perform) has proven to be invaluable.” Werth also uses Muscle
Matrix and Farrier’s Matrix on her horses regularly. Carter said that at Werth’s request, Equine Matrix products were tested at a Paris-based FEI (Federation Equestre Internationale)-accredited laboratory and received the FEI Anti-Doping Certification. German dressage team veterinarian Dr. Cordula “Coco” Gather and Swedish team vet Dr. Jonas Tornell took note of Werth’s success and now recommend Equine Matrix for their riders. Olympians Clayton and Lucinda Fredericks, Andrew Hoy and Chris Burton of Australia (eventing) are all reportedly fans of Equine Matrix, as well as Patrik Kittel of Sweden (dressage) and Ireland’s Billy Twomey (show jumping). Among the riders who use the products for themselves and their horses and have competed locally in recent months are the show jumping team of Helen McNaught and Duncan McFarlane. “My horses finished six weeks in Thermal as fresh and sound as they started,” McNaught said. “Our clients all commented on the difference in the horses they were riding since they’ve been on the ‘Matrix’ program. We were feeding less grain week six than week one! Incredible. The feet were growing faster and stronger. If I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn’t have believed it. Anyone who knows me, knows how ‘hands on’ I am. I noticed a huge difference. A great deal of the success myself, Duncan and our clients had, in my opinion, is because of the help of Equine
Matrix.” The latest product from Matrixhealthwerks is NRGmatrix, a gluten-free, citrus-flavored energy drink that comes in a powder form. It’s part of the Mi Matrix line for humans. “My goal was to develop a product that would provide people with not only a source of natural energy, but many noticeable health and immune benefits, as well,” Carter said. “As someone who has made a career of health and wellness, I have been fascinated by the energy drink craze and the lack of truly healthy options. This is the perfect solution for those who are wary of energy drinks currently on the market. “A lot of people today (rely on) caffeine and sugar,” she added. “This (NRGmatrix) works with the body. It’s a natural whole food; you’ll sleep great.” Mi Matrix products are available online and will soon be available at local stores, fitness and yoga centers and through alternative health practitioners. Local locations where the Equine Matrix line is carried are Mary’s Tack and Feed in Del Mar and Custom Saddlery in San Marcos. The closest places to find Pet Matrix items are Dexter’s Deli in Carlsbad and Del Mar, Dirty Dogs in Cardiff and San Diego, and Pet Stop in La Jolla.

‘Manufacturing Stoke’ headlines 2012 outdoor movie nights at Del Mar Shores Park The third annual Del Mar Shores Cinema Series returns the first weekend after Labor Day (Friday and Saturday, Sept. 7-8) for two free movie nights at Del Mar Shores Park (9th St. and Stratford Ct.). “Our board, volunteers and film committee have worked tirelessly to bring thought-provoking and inspiring oceanthemed films – and the creative minds behind them – to our community,” said Friends of Del Mar Parks President Joe Sullivan. This year, the Cinema Series kicks off Sept. 7 at sunset (around 7:30 p.m.) with a trio of award-winning surf films, Abroad/ Salmon Theory/Manufacturing Stoke, an unflinching and timely look at the surf industry today, with a special guest appearances by the filmmakers and founders of the San Diego Surf Film Festival. The Sept. 8 marquee kicks off with Amazing Jellies (official selection: San Francisco Ocean Film Festival), followed by Willem & The Whales, a look at a world without whales told through the eyes of a child. The feature presentation will be Universal Pictures’ Big Miracle, starring Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski.
While the Cinema Series is free to the public, Friends of Del Mar Parks emphasize the need for modest community support to cover basic costs and volunteer needs. VIP seating with lawn chairs and picnic baskets, as well as wine and cheese baskets and movie treats, can be purchased and reserved online at delmarshores.org, with all proceeds supporting the Friends of Del Mar Parks’ mission to acquire, preserve, and support recreational and educational open spaces in the Del Mar area. “Now in our third year, the Cinema Series is truly and uniquely Del Mar. Where else can you enjoy free thought-provoking films against the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean and the stars above? Bring a picnic, bring a blanket, even bring your dog, and don’t miss our best year ever,” said series cofounder and Del Mar resident Ian Leggat. All information on the Cinema Series— including the full schedule, film trailers, VIP reservations and participating food trucks — can be found at delmarshores.org and on Facebook (www.facebook.com/DelMarCinema). Come early, bring a blanket, beach chair and picnic.

San Diego Jewish Academy student wins at Google Science Fair Eighth grade San Diego Jewish Academy (SDJA) student Jonah Kohn won his age group at the Google Science Fair, held July 23 in Pal Alto, Calif. Jonah became one of three overall winners in the competition as decided by an elite group of judges that included Nobel laureate Ada Yonath and Stephen Myers, the scientist heading the CERN accelerator complex. The Google Science Fair received thousands of entries from over 100 countries worldwide. Kohn’s project, “Good Vibrations: Improving the Music Experience for People with Hearing Loss Using Multi-Frequency Tactile Sound,” won first prize in the 13-14-year-old age group and has the potential to improve the enjoyment of music for millions of people with hearing loss. Kohn achieved this with a device that converts music into vibrations delivered to users using modules attached to their bodies.
The competition was challenging, but Kohn found it enjoyable and interesting. “Google made the competition fun and I made new friends. The hardest part was giving a presentation to the judges, who asked some challenging questions, but I calmed myself and concentrated on my answers,” said Kohn about his experience. Vint Cerf, who is considered one of the founding fathers of the internet and was a judge in the competition, told a Scientific American magazine reporter that he became fascinated by a statement Jonah made in his presentation: that tactile sound could have an impact beyond music to illuminate how we perceive language. “I suddenly realized that there are lots of different means by which we understand things, and there is not just a single medium, it’s not just voice but it’s what we see, what we hear, and, now, possibly what we

Letters to the Editor/Opinion
Clarification needed from district Editor’s note: The following letter was addressed to San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Ken Noah and submitted to this newspaper for publication. Dear Superintendent Noah, I read in a recent newspaper article a quote from you regarding a recent board vote to authorize a general obligation bond to be placed on the November ballot to raise funds for construction projects.
You stated that “the district has not had to ask for such a measure in 40 years because facilities have been supported with revenue from Mello Roos, state funding and funding matches but that no longer is the case.” Excuse me… I am paying over $1,200 a year in additional taxes for the Mello Roos that appears on my property tax bill. How can you claim that you are no longer receiving the funds? I assume that our
payments are going to repay debt service long-term. However, as a resident of Pacific Highlands Ranch, the community is less than a decade old and the Mello Roos was to have funded the facilities in Pacific Highlands Ranch. Please clarify the statement that the district no longer has revenue proceeds available from the Mello Roos that we are paying for long term. Thank you, Sara Isgur
Pro-pot lobby’s illegal ballot initiative Solana Beach will see the medical marijuana initiative on the Nov. 6 ballot. The pro-pot lobby is desperately trying to keep illegal pot storefronts afloat as law enforcement has successfully shuttered their operations throughout the county. But now they have found a loophole where they can force a vote of the electorate to try and permit illegal pot shops. That’s right, a ballot initiative doesn’t have to be certified as legal to be put before voters. Anyone, for any reason, can force a vote of the electorate. In the case of the pot shop owners who are looking for any sort of defense mechanism from law enforcement and the courts, this loophole is currently where they are spending their time and money. Using illegally obtained
profits, from their alleged “non-profit” pot shops, they’ve hired paid signature gatherers, lobbyists and attorneys to force cities to break the law. It’s that ridiculous. Wisely Del Mar prepared a 40-page ballot initiative impact report, and the harm to our cities is significant. The impacts range from state tax code and federal Control Substances Act violations, to landlord asset forfeitures, city employee prosecutions and loss of precious federal grant monies.

DM Foundation thanks the city for support Editor’s note: This letter was sent to Del Mar City Manager Scott Huth and to this newspaper for publication. Dear Scott, On behalf of the Del Mar Foundation, we would like to sincerely thank the City of Del Mar and the Department of Community Services for their strong support and efforts to diligently manage the crowds both on the sand and in the parks during the local Summer Twilight Concert Series events. As the Del Mar Foundation celebrates 30 years of concerts in the park, the community has shown tremendous support through their attendance at these events. While we have acknowledged the efforts of Pat Vergne and the Community Services team publicly at each of the concerts, enough cannot be said about their efforts in support of this community
event. Importantly, the tireless work of enforcement officers to ensure safety for attendees and residents before, during, and following events provides a sense of comfort as well as deep appreciation. The support from the lifeguard crew during these events does much to impress upon the value of the new beach safety center and the strength that each lifeguard’s training and expertise bring to our community. The Del Mar Foundation looks forward to continuing to work together with the city to promote civic pride and cohesiveness through diverse cultural and community events such as the Summer Twilight Concert Series for years to come. With much appreciation, Carolyn E. Kling, President, Del Mar Foundation
Roberts a true representative of the people The following is a rebuttal to the a letter by Carl Hilliard published in this newspaper on July 19. The two faces of Carl Hilliard are very interesting indeed. There is the Candidate Carl who ran for County Supervisor. And now there is the Vindictive Carl who lost, and is seeking revenge. During his campaign Candidate Carl repeatedly bashed Steve Danon’s politics, and woeful lack of applicable experience, stating very clearly that Danon was not equipped for the job.
In fact, Pam SlaterPrice agreed that Danon did not have the skills or ability for the job, and endorsed Dave Roberts for County Supervisor. Putting politics and a long friendship with Carl aside, she endorsed Roberts because she felt strongly that he was far away the candidate who would work hard to protect the quality of life of the residents of her district. After the primary election, Danon then offered Candidate Carl co-chairmanship of his campaign
Land plan changes should be discussed at SB council meeting The Solana Beach City Council needs to discuss the manipulative actions of the Coastal Commission. When they were approving the Solana Beach Land Use Plan, the Coastal Commission staff added a bunch of changes at the last minute. These changes were not discussed and agreed to by the communi-
ty and the city’s elected officials. And they still haven’t been discussed by the City Council. Why hasn’t the City Council put this item on the agenda so we can discuss these changes as a community? This dialogue must start immediately. Kimberly Caccavo
and chair of his finance committee. Candidate Carl, smarting from not being endorsed by Slater-Price, and angry at Roberts because he got her endorsement, became Vindictive Carl. That is why Carl Hilliard, now co-chairman of the Danon campaign, wrote his letter supporting Danon. It is politics and politics only. It’s all about what Hilliard can personally get out of Danon winning the election. Hilliard’s motivation represents all the things that are wrong
with people like that who are in office. It is terrible and a darn shame for us, the public who must live with these kinds of shameful shenanigans. Vindictive Carl is not very becoming, and his hypocrisy and selfishness show his true destructive self. Please vote for Dave Roberts, a true representative of the people.

editorial/opinion page. Candidate endorsements are considered commercial speech and will no longer be published as a letter to the editor.

Garrick warns of danger leaving kids in hot cars Every year, an average of 38 young children die from heat stroke when they are left in a hot vehicle. In half of these tragedies, the caregiver had forgotten that the child was in the car. 74th District Assemblyman Martin Garrick has released an article (see www.delmartimes.net, “Life category,” for entire article) warning of the dangers of leaving children in cars and what can be done to prevent such sense-
less deaths. Citing that California is third in the country for child vehicular heat stroke deaths – following Florida and Texas – Assemblyman Garrick states: “We must be proactive in protecting our children from hyperthermia.” He refers to preventative steps recommended by Kids and Cars, an organization that maintains a comprehensive website dedicated to vehicle safety for children:
• Put something – such a cell phone or handbag — in the backseat of your vehicle that requires you to open the back door every time you park. • Keep a stuffed animal in your child’s car seat. Place it on the front seat as a reminder when your baby is in the back seat. • Ask your babysitter or child care provider to call you if your child hasn’t arrived on time.
BONDS continued from page 1 intendent Ken Noah said in his report to the board, “There is currently no available funding to accomplish all of the necessary upgrades and projects called for in the master plans.” During the July 26 meeting, he said he didn’t have much more to add about the topic other than pointing to his report which noted “four years of planning and community engagement” had gone into the proposed measure. He also noted it has been more than 40 years since district residents were last asked to back a school bond. Del Mar School District Superintendent Holly McClurg, who took over as the district’s leader on July 1 and previously served as assistant superintendent for instructional services, had much the same message. “Some of our core values can’t be done without funding. We need access to 21st century tools and infrastructure,” she said on July 25. Both district chiefs also stressed the importance of keeping funding sources local because of uncertainties about state funding They also both said that by issuing the bonds they could offset expenditures that otherwise would have to come from the general funds. “We are looking at a drastic deficit of $4 million in the best-case scenario over the next couple of years and farther out,” McClurg said. In the San Dieguito district, with its four middle schools, four high schools, two alternative schools and an adult education program, the measure seeks $449 million, which would cost property owners about $25 per $100,000 of assessed valuation. The bonds, to be issued in four offerings over six years, would also raise funds to build a new middle school in Carmel Valley. The Del Mar district has eight elementary schools, as well as preschool and after-school programs that serve residents in Del Mar and Carmel Valley. Its $76.8 million measure would cost property owners $8.44 per $100,000 of assessed valuation. DMUSD Trustee Comischell Rodriquez said one of the challenges in getting voters to get on board will be overcoming “myths” about the district. She said
August 2, 2012 some people believe the district has a large reserve and doesn’t need more money, and that all of the schools are “new” and don’t need modernizing or repairs. Catherine Birks, assistant superintendent for business services, pointed out that “last year we broke even and this year is the first year we will run a deficit.” The district is not getting “categorical” funds for special programs from the state that it once did and income from property tax “is not what it was,” she added. “The reality is, yes we have reserves, but we don’t know what will happen with the state,” she continued. While it took more than two hours for Del Mar trustees to arrive at their 4-1 vote, San Dieguito’s board moved quickly on theirs. SDUHSD Trustee Amy Herman, who called the vote a “momentous decision,” said that she was concerned a bit about the competing bond measures “but we’ve cut and cut and there’s no place else to go. I can’t imagine stopping now because we’re worried.” She repeated what some her fellow trustees and some on the Del Mar board had said: “We have to go forward. The voters will decide.” Her colleague, Beth Hergesheimer, also had a succinct statement echoed by others: “This is not just a wish list – it’s a needs list.” Even so, Salazar and Perkins, the trustees in the two districts who voted against putting the measures to the voters, had reservations. Salazar said he felt the amount of the bond was too great. He also said, “In reality, some people in our district are not doing well. Their homes are underwater, they already pay Mello Roos and homeowners dues and they can’t afford the added tax. The timing is not right, he added, because of too many competing measures. But the other four trustees in each district agreed it was essential to seek the funds in order to protect the quality of education in the district. In casting his “no” vote, Perkins also raised concerns about the economic impact of additional taxes on local families and said he felt a “standalone” measure later would be better when the district has a clearer picture on the state finances. Current state finances have put education funding in jeopardy, forcing many districts to lay off teachers
and expand class sizes. Faced with that there are two state measures on the ballot. According to the California School Boards Association website, Gov. Jerry “Brown’s plan would generate about $8.5 billion in the first year and close to $6.5 billion annually thereafter by creating new income brackets for the state’s highest earners for seven years and by hiking the sales tax by 3.45 percent.” CSBA states that a second plan, put forward by Molly Munger, “would provide close to $10 billion annually in additional income for the state by increasing personal income taxes over the next 12 years on a sliding scale for virtually all Californians – from less than one-half percent for the lowest earners to 2.2 percent for individuals earning over $2.5 million.”
ANTENNA continued from page 1 and students of CCA. There was a meeting held July 1 at CCA on the topic, but only three people (all students) attended. Many people say they were unaware of the meeting. CCA science teacher Ariel Haas said he was on site during this meeting and had no idea it was even taking place. He said he was distraught at the lack of notification. “I understand I am speaking against my district’s wishes, which is not to my benefit, but I feel strongly that kids should not be exposed to such things,” Haas said. The letter also states that in order to notify the school community about the project, “it is our understanding that the school district chose to post a notice in the North County Times – a newspaper with little circulation among the Canyon Crest Academy community. We were unable to find this notification in the newspaper archives so we cannot speak to its contents...It was not until the Carmel Valley News and Rancho Santa Fe Review reported on the board’s vote to deny, and the City’s subsequent decision to approve, the application that the broader school community even became aware of the project.” The planning board also believes that due diligence and prudent avoidance were not exercised in the selection of the antenna’s location. “The scientific community and most health officials agree that more re-
search is needed to provide a definitive answer as to the effects of extremely low frequency electromagnetic and radio-frequency radiation on our health and recommend the prudent avoidance of placing such equipment in close proximity to children and adults for long periods of time,” state’s the letter. “As a result, in 2009, the Los Angeles Unified School District passed a resolution calling for criteria to establish cell tower setbacks from schools.” The CV planning board also pointed out that nearby Cathedral Catholic High School doesn’t allow such facilities on its campus. Board members also expressed concern about potential collocation of antennas atop CCA. Collocation refers to the collection of multiple antennas in one location, and the Federal Communications Commission has released statements encouraging collocation where feasible to reduce the need for new tower construction. “We’re concerned that over time all these multiple carriers might be stuck on the side of a building,” Haas said. Copic said a number of parents have contacted her to find out how they can get involved in opposing the antenna project. “I don’t want to set a precedent where schools are an easy target for these,” she said. The planning board will be sending a representative to the Aug. 16 school board meeting, which will be begin at 6:30 p.m. and take place in the district’s Board Room 101 at 710 Encinitas Blvd. To read the entire letter sent by the planning board to the school district, see the end of this story at www.delmartimes.net.

Manchester BU11 Academy wins Albion Cup Manchester BU11 Academy Elite are champions of the Top Showcase Flight in the Albion Cup National Soccer Showcase held July 21-23 in San Diego, defeating Albion SC White 3-2 (PKs). After Albion took a 1-0 lead in the second half, Manchester answered with a goal by Bryan Delgado on a direct kick. With three minutes remaining Albion scored again, but another Albion foul gave Manchester the chance it needed: When Bryan Delgado’s strike bounced off the crossbar, Marcos Calderon and Jose Rios both got a head on the ball for the equalizer. With no goals in extra time, the game went to penalty kicks. After three successful kicks, Manchester went ahead on a save by goalkeeper Mallel Rios, only to see its advantage erased when the Albion keeper saved Manchester’s fourth kick. Then Albion’s fourth kick missed the mark. Manchester’s fifth and final kicker, Andrew Espinoza, coolly stepped to the line and put the ball in the net, giving Manchester the victory. In group play, Manchester defeated Pumas Premier FC 6-0, Hotspurs USA Premier 1-0 on a goal by Daniel Delgado, and Albion 2-1 on two penalty kicks converted by Marcos Calderon after fouls in the box.

Torrey Pines golfer a quick study BY GIDEON RUBIN Aaron Strockis may not be Torrey Pines High’s most talented golfer, and he’s definitely not the most experienced. But it’s hard to imagine anybody on the team who can match his determination. Strockis was a latecomer to the sport. He didn’t even start taking lessons until he was in eighth grade, when he got swept up in the excitement surrounding Torrey Pines Golf Course playing host to the 2008 U.S. Open. He took his energy, enthusiasm, and some of the athletic skill he developed playing Little League to his new venture. “The determination is incredible,” Drake said. “He set a goal for himself and the goal wasn’t just to make the team, the goal was to make the postseason and he did everything he could do to achieve it.” With less than a year of lessons under his belt, Strockis went out for the intensely competitive Falcons team his freshman year and missed the cut by one stroke. He continued working on his game but Aaron Strockis again missed the cut by the same margin his sophomore year. “You have to draw the line somewhere and, unfortunately, he was on the other side of the line,” Torrey Pines coach Chris Drake said. Earlier this year, Strockis didn’t just cross the line, he obliterated it. On a team of over 20 golfers, he surpassed more established teammates, some of whom have since committed to Division I colleges, on his way to becoming among the top six golfers on one of the state’s most perennially dominant programs. Strockis believes his baseball background benefitted his golf game. “Some of the athletic moves are similar,” Strockis said. “It was an easier transition for me, comparatively speaking, than if I’d played football or soccer or something like that.” He acknowledged some discouragement at first. “I tried to keep it in perspective because I knew how talented a team it was,” Strockis said. “I took it as challenge. I just tried to use it to motivate me I guess.” Strockis’ work ethic and determination earned him the respect of teammates and coaches.
“He’s an incredibly hard worker,” Drake said. “He’s just a great kid.” Strockis, who’ll be a senior later this year, is hopeful that he’ll land at a Division I college program. He figures to attract interest from college scouts in the coming months and projects to play at the Division I level, Drake said. “He’s going to be a big contributor next year and he’s going to make some college coach who takes him look like genius,” Drake said. His status among the team’s top six golfers qualified him for postseason team play. He competed in the state championships at San Gabriel Country Club in June, an event that helped get the unheralded rising star some exposure. “He’s not super highly ranked and he doesn’t play a lot of junior tournaments, but he’s starting to do more of that,” Drake said. “Somebody’s going to see him and he’s got a great swing. He’s only going to get better.” Strockis has played at some big tournaments this summer. Earlier this summer, he competed among an elite international field of 200 golfers at the Callaway Junior World Golf championship, and placed third out of a field of 110 at the San Diego Junior Masters.
But making the Torrey Pines team was just the first step. Strockis continued working on his game, pushing himself beyond his initial goal. “You don’t want to just be the guy who makes the team, you want to step up and contribute to the team,” Strockis said. Strockis cited private coaching as a key factor in his development, but said that being around some of the state’s most competitive individual golfers playing at Torrey Pines rubbed off on him. “It was a huge part,” Strockis said. “The team has been completely instrumental as far as my development as a player.” He credits teammates Bobby Gojuangco and Danny Ochoa with helping him understand some of the intangibles of playing competitive golf, such as how to prepare and maintain an even keel on the golf course. And although he admits it wasn’t easy at first, he’s grateful to have done things the hard way in establishing himself as a player who belongs at Torrey Pines. “It definitely was hard at first just coming into a program like this,” Strockis said. “It was intimidating at first, but it was just a matter of letting it motivate me instead of letting it frustrate me,” Strockis said. “It actually helped me.”

BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT North Coast Repertory Theatre’s 31st season — the 10th under Artistic Director David Ellenstein — begins and ends with a farce. How does Ellenstein choose his plays? He’s got a little list — a master list of about 100 plays that he adds to all the time. “I always want an eclectic mix,” he said. “NCRT has no genre agenda; we try to offer a buffet!” Ellenstein will be directing three plays this season: “Words By,” “Time Stands Still,” and “Becoming Cuba.” Meanwhile, through Aug. 11, he’s onstage in Vista, playing Tevye in the Moonlight production of “Fiddler on the Roof.” www.moonlightstage.com/ Here’s the season roundup: Sept. 5-30 Kicking off the 2012-13 season is “The Underpants,” originally written in 1910 by German playwright Carl Sternheim, a contemporary of Kafka who often satirized the bourgeoisie. This adaptation, by actor-comedian-banjo player-writer Steve Martin, has brought the play worldwide exposure since its 2002 off-Broadway premiere. Martin kept the storyline — what happens after the wife of a government clerk accidentally drops her drawers in public — but he made “The Underpants” his own: a little zanier, not so political, but with some social commentary underneath. Ellenstein, who is also an actor, has a Steve Martin connection: He played Einstein in a 1999 Laguna Playhouse production of “Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” Martin’s first full-length play. Oct. 17-Nov. 11 You’ll want to sing along with “Words By: Ira Gershwin and the Great American Songbook,” about the lesserknown lyricist brother of George. Ira not only wrote the words to over a dozen hit musicals by his younger brother, but collaborated with composers like Harold Arlen and Kurt Weill after George’s early demise. His lyrics turned catchy tunes into singable classics; now this world premiere puts the spotlight on him. Part musical revue, part life-and-

excited about bringing this one to NCRT. April 10-May 5 Next comes “The Odd Couple,” the ultimate bad roommate comedy, which won Neil Simon his first Tony and rocketed his career. “Once the movie came out, people stopped doing the play,” Ellenstein said. “But it’s still as funny as ever.”
times reminiscence, “Words By” is the second Gershwin tribute by Minnesota music-man Joseph Vass, whose Georgecentered show, “The Soul of Gershwin,” has jazzed up theaters from Miami to Toronto. Jan. 9-Feb. 3 Remember the 1983 movie “Educating Rita,” a Pygmalion-themed charmer about a cynical, middle-aged professor and a young Liverpool hairdresser with a yearning for higher education? Now you can see the play on which the film was based. Playwright Willy Russell, who also wrote “Shirley Valentine,” has a knack for creating irresistible working-class women who are determined to change their lives. Feb. 20-March 17 Contemporary issues flare up in the Tony-nominated drama “Time Stands Still,” about a combat reporter/photojournalist couple trying to adapt to conventional life back home. Ellenstein has directed several plays by Pulitzer prizewinner Donald Margulies and said he is

May 29-June 23 World premiere No. 2 is “Becoming Cuba,” by Boston-based Melinda Lopez, a winner of the Kennedy Center’s Charlotte Woodard Award, given to a promising new voice in American theater. Ellenstein directed two of her earlier plays, and calls her “a friend and colleague, and a very in-demand writer now.” Commissioned by NCRT in a novel way — as a self-gifted birthday present from board member Jenie Altruda — “Becoming Cuba” was work-shopped here for a week in June, with the playwright in attendance. It’s an offbeat, often comic drama about family and freedom — with a few ghosts thrown in — set in the time of what Cubans call the War of Independence and we call the Spanish-American War. July 10-Aug. 4 There’ll be no stiff upper lips at the season’s finale: “Perfect Wedding,” a British bedroom farce by Robin Hawden, whose adaptation of “Don’t Dress for Dinner” was a smash at NCRT in 2008. This one starts out with a man waking up on his wedding morning with a woman beside him who is not his bride.

Interfaith Community Services welcomes new Director of Veteran Services •Re tired colonel will focus on helping veterans in a variety of ways BY CATHERINE KOLONKO It didn’t take much to convince a U.S. Army colonel to join forces with a local nonprofit to help military veterans in need. After 11 months of retirement and lots of playing tennis and teaching it to youngsters, Col. Bernard “Kimo” Gabriel was good to go. Gabriel, 59, has been named the new director of veteran services for Interfaith Community Services (ICS), which helps disadvantaged and underserved North County residents. He spoke to members and supporters on July 26 during a reception in his honor at the Carmel Valley home of Richard and Jinda Schatz. “We are lucky to get him,” said ICS executive director Richard Batt, introducing Gabriel to the group. Finding solutions for fellow veterans is a cause dear to Gabriel who served the military for 37 years, including a stint as Director of Operations for the Asia Pacific Center for Security Studies in Hawaii. A one-time paratrooper who joked of his experiences jumping from planes, Gabriel came up through military ranks and made colonel in 1981. “I was at the Pentagon when the airplane hit” during the terror attack of 9/11, Gabriel said. “Not too many people know that.” The retired colonel said that 32 of his friends were killed that day. About a decade later, Gabriel was settling into retirement in Arizona, volunteering at the local Veterans Affairs hospital and “playing too much tennis,” he said. After a visit to the hospital he talked to his wife about his desire to do something more to help his “brothers and sisters” — veterans struggling with everyday life. “We said, OK let’s do it,” Gabriel said about pursuing the job with Interfaith. Batt said that Gabriel was chosen from a pool of exceptional candidates for a previously vacated post that has expanded to include strategic program development. One advantage that Gabriel brings to the job is that he served the military both as a soldier and an officer because many veterans who seek ICS assistance served as enlisted personnel.
Dr. Richard Schatz and Jinda Schatz, vice chair of the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation Women’s Fund Grant Committee; Col. (ret) Bernard Gabriel, Interfaith Community Services director of veterans services. “He had an extraordinary military career that is really characterized by leadership,” said Batt. Gabriel said he wants to build the veteran programs offered through ICS into a model that can be duplicated nationwide. A key component will be an emphasis on military veterans helping other veterans with issues spawned from shared experiences, such as depression, alcoholism, joblessness, and homelessness. His plans also include forging bonds with corporations that could benefit from the experience and discipline of military veterans and, in turn, potentially provide jobs or training for them. “This idea of maximizing the talent and skills of our veterans … is also very important because our mission is to get them off of the street,” Gabriel said. Two women veterans attended the reception and spoke
about how they were either homeless or on the verge of having no place to live when they sought the services of Interfaith. Kristine Wise, 42, said she battled with depression after serving a stint in Iraq. While staying at a shelter for women veterans she met Jana Ketchum, 56, who experienced similar difficulties. The two women successfully completed programs, became best friends and are no longer homeless. Gabriel views his new position as a way to help veterans like Wise and Ketchum and show his appreciation for his military service. “It’s about giving back to the military for what they have done for me and my family,” Gabriel said in a telephone interview. “I can’t thank the military enough for what they have done for my family.” Gabriel and his wife Debbie have four grandchildren and three grown sons, two who serve in the military and one who is a teacher. The Vietnam War was winding down in 1972 when Gabriel was drafted into service and sent to Germany. He enjoyed the Army so much that he re-enlisted. At the end of his required service, he left to attend college and then returned as a commissioned officer second lieutenant. His career included work in foreign affairs and two stints in Washington D.C. He holds master degrees from Cornell University and the U.S. National Defense University. Gabriel plans to rev up outreach to spread the word about veteran services offered at Interfaith and build connections with educational and business leaders. This week he meets with representatives from Palomar College and Veterans Affairs, he said. At the end of the day, the reward is to see veterans brought back from being homeless to being self-sufficient, Gabriel said. “Hopefully we will give them all the confidence they need,” he said.

Accomplished author Jennie Fields to appear at local events Book ‘The Age of Desire’ focuses on Edith Wharton’s love life, relationships
La Jolla Cultural Partners
BY KATHY DAY Somewhere in her basement, Jennie Fields has the first “novel” she wrote when she was 6. It’s a simple reminder of the beginnings for the Nashville-based author who will visit Rancho Santa Fe and La Jolla on Aug. 13 (see box) to talk about her newest work, “The Age of Desire.” Set mostly in Paris in the early 20th century, the novel tells the story of Edith Wharton’s affair with journalist Morton Fullerton, but it also delves into her sexual awakening and her relationships with her husband Teddy and friend, former governess and secretary Anna Bahlmann. In a recent phone interview, Fields said that when she wrote her first book, “Lily Beach,” it was a tribute of sorts to Lily Bart, a character in Wharton’s “House of Mirth.” One of the agents that received the manuscript immediately recognized the connection, she recalled, noting that Lisa Bankoff still represents her. “I’ve always had a connection to Edith Wharton,” she said. “She always wrote about people affected by society and how they were trapped by it.” As a girl growing up in the ‘50s and ‘60s, she said she herself faced expectations that she would be a librarian or a nurse. “Wait. Why do I have to do that?” Fields said she thought
growing up. “I related to (Wharton’s) characters who were stuck in expectations.” While she admired Wharton’s use of language and “can read her over and over and never get bored,” it would be 20 years from the publication of that first novel before she came to write about her. “After three books, I was kind of stuck,” she recalled. “I didn’t know what was next.” But then a chance call with Bankoff changed that. Fields was visiting Paris and had just walked along the Rue de Varenne where Wharton lived.
“Lisa called and said, ‘I have an idea. Why don’t you write about your favorite author?’” At that moment, she said, her heart started pounding and she stayed awake all night. While “Age of Desire” is fiction, Fields chose the genre of a biographical novel to tell the story because “it allows you to live in the person’s skin” and as she puts in on her website,” to read between the lines … It was a delicious puzzle and I very much enjoyed solving it to my satisfaction. I hope I’ve done Edith’s life justice.” The puzzle included many pieces of research, some of which were found in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale, which houses a collection of manuscripts and letters – including love letters, personal papers and other materials from, to and about Wharton. She also spent time in the University of Indiana Library, which holds another collection about the author, including personal diaries about her love affair with Fullerton. But a key to her work was the somewhat “serendipitous” timing of an online notice that Christie’s was about to auction a collection of Anna Bahlmann letters which had been found in an attic. “I had already decided that Anna Bahlmann must be important in her life and nobody had written about her,” Fields said,
noting that she told the story partially through the governessturned secretary-turned friend’s point of view. After seeking permission from the auction house, she was able to read through the letters. She’s also still in touch with Bahlmann’s great grandniece, who transcribed the letters. “It was such a thrill. Everything I had supposed about her was true.” The collection was purchased by Yale’s Beinecke Library and Fields went back to read them two more times. Recently she attended a conference of Wharton scholars in Italy where she read from “Age of Desire.” She was honored, she said, to have them “acknowledge I had done my research right.” As Fields was getting ready to hit the road to promote her book, the author who spent 32 years as an advertising agency creative director in New York, talked a bit about her own life and a writer’s aspirations. She attended the Iowa Writer’s Workshop for graduate school and “needed to get a job.” That’s when she landed in advertising, where she learned skills such as conserving words, meeting deadlines and being disciplined that she says have helped her as a writer. She recommends that anyone who thinks they want to go down

Saffron sizzles with Thai favorites that are good for what ails you! BY KELLEY CARLSON hether you’re craving a nutritious meal, or suffering from a condition that requires careful monitoring of your diet, Saffron likely has a cure for your hunger pangs. “I’m trying to use traditional recipes and combine them with my own sensibility to create dishes that are flavorful, delicious, and at the same time healthful,” said Su-Mei Yu, owner and chef. A strong believer in the Thai concept of “food as medicine,” Yu said she prides herself in using “very good” ingredients in her exotic fare, including gluten-free soy sauce and rice-bran oil for cooking. She travels to her native Thailand once or twice a year to research food preparation techniques and recipes, and applies her knowledge to her dishes at Saffron. “Many people say that after eating here, they feel good,” said Yu, who has lived in La Jolla since 1979. “That’s probably the highest compliment they can give me.” Maybe some of that feeling can be attributed to her Good Mood Soup, which features shrimp, green papaya, pineapple, garlic and chilies in a spicy turmeric-infused broth — served on Mondays to get rid of those back-to-work blahs. Or maybe they consumed Brain Food, which is prepared with ingredients known to be nurturing to the brain, such as sweet potato, sage, turmeric, garlic, ginger, chili and kale. This fall, as the new school year gets
On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant at delmartimes.net. Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. This week:
■ Saffron’s Cucumber Relish – Ajaad under way, Yu plans to offer a Brain Booster dish that will include mustard greens, bok choy, spinach, broccoli, shiitake mushrooms, tumeric and noodles made from yams. Another unique aspect about Saffron is that its two locations are next to each other, and they operate under the same brand. One is the Thai Grilled Chicken side — the original site, which is strictly takeout due to its small space. Customers who enter through its red doors find themselves almost immediately face-to-face with the staff at the register. The menu includes chicken plates; Salad Rolls, which are a combination of rice noodles, lettuce, cucumber, carrot, daikon, mint and cilantro with a choice of protein, wrapped in rice paper; egg rolls; and satay. There is also the Monday Night Football
Cucumber Salad Chicken Special, which can actually be ordered all day Sundays and Monday nights year-round, when $15 buys a whole chicken, rice, Cambodian salad and five dipping sauces. The other side of Saffron, which opened in 2002, is Noodles and Saté. Popular entrees include Drunken Noodles and Pad Thai; patrons also may select rice, curry and vegetable dishes, along with desserts such as Sweet Sticky Rice with Mango. This is also the part of the establishment where guests can sit down and dine, after placing their order at the counter. The dining room displays artwork from Yu’s friends, glass sculptor Dale Chihuly and the late artist Italo Scanga; photos of Yu posing with celebrities such as Martha Stewart and Sissy Spacek; and numerous critics and
readers choice awards. Tables are decorated with pink and white flowers in clear vases, along with sauces and peppers; reflections from the mini mirror balls above dance over the surfaces. On the covered patio in front, guests can casually observe the auto and foot traffic of the Mission Hills Business District. “(Having the two sides) is like having a split personality,” Yu said. “But we can do the same thing on both sides (with food).” Children can feast on simple, nourishing meals, such as the Yummy Drumstick with thick rice noodles and peanut sauce, and the Steamy Trees (cooked broccoli) and Grilled Chicken Saté. “We say the kids here help me plant rice,” Yu said with a smile, referring to the state of the floor after families have finished their meals. “They scatter it like Thai farmers. We love children; they’re funny people.” Special events occur occasionally at the restaurant, including cooking classes and a monthly street food market with offerings such as grilled corn, macaroons, Lao chicken sausage, a noodle dish and a Thai ice cream sandwich. Tuesdays is “Spread the Wealth,” in which patrons receive 10 percent off their purchase of $30 or more. Parking options include metered spaces on India Street, a lot behind Shakespeare Pub & Grille, or on residential streets throughout the Mission Hills neighborhood; valet parking is available on weekends. Customers may also choose curbside pickup.

Jewel to perform at brunch benefit Del Mar business owner looking to grow discount program for locals
Singer Jewel will perform at a fundraiser brunch for homeless women and their children on Sunday, Sept. 9, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the La Jolla estate of Joan Waitt. Money raised at the event will support the services provided by Rachel’s House, which is run by San Diego’s Catholic Charities. The goal of the brunch is $500,000.

• Free VIP cards available at Place360 BY CLAIRE HARLIN Did you know there is a VIP program for locals that entitles you to deals like a free appetizer with two entrees at Flavor Del Mar or a free side dish with the purchase of a burger at Smashburger? Not to mention — it’s free. “It’s a community-based program. That’s the intent,” said Place360 owner Helen McCabe-Young, who created the program. “Everyone wins with it; it just needs some exposure.” This is how it works: Stop in Place360, which just moved to a bigger location at 1219 Camino del Mar, in Del Mar, and ask for a free Club360 card. Then, visit www.delmarvip.com to find out specific deals in the Del Mar area. There are currently about 16 offers. Sushi Japone, located at 1101 Camino del Mar, also hands out the cards and they offer $10 off every $50 spent in the restaurant. Dentist Patricia Murphy offers 50 percent off teeth whitening, and Haim salon offers a complimentary deep conditioning with any hair service. “Any business that wants to participate can contact me, and I will also give the VIP cards to whatever business wants to pass them out,” McCabe-Young said. “I really want there to be more businesses participating, but the challenge is that this is such a grassroots endeavor and I haven’t personally been able to get around to everybody.” When McCabe-Young started Place360, an integrated health and wellness spa, with her business partner Tracy Whynot, she set out to meet fellow business owners in the Village. The idea for Club360 came about when she realized the particularly small community needed an incentive for people to shop local and get businesses working more closely together.
“It was originally conceived to provide locals with a benefit and inspire them to use local businesses,” she said, adding that she has since partnered with the Del Mar Village Associate in making Club360 happen. McCabe-Young funded the VIP club website after she received overwhelming support for her idea from other business owners. “You can have ideas but you really have to get going to make it happen,” she said. “Most everyone was saying ‘yes’ to offering specials because they see the value in it and there’s no fee.” For more information, visit www.delmarvip.com.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS Longtime local dentist Dr. Curtis Chan opens new office in Del Mar BY KELLEY CARLSON Dr. Curtis Chan, a longtime dentist in the Carmel Valley/Del Mar area, has something new to smile about. After being in a temporary location for the last year, Chan’s office has found a home at 12835 Pointe Del Mar Way, Suite C, in Del Mar (92014). The celebrating begins Aug. 6 with the start of Patient Appreciation Week. People can drop in for tours of the facility and receive a gift. Those visitors who are patients of record will also receive a raffle ticket for a drawing to be held during the grand opening celebration, set from 5 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 9. Among the prizes will be an iPod, spa packages and family health care baskets. Although Chan is based in a new office, he is not a newcomer to the field. He grew up among health care professionals — his father was a physician and his uncle was an orthodontist. And of the five boys in Chan’s family, four became dentists. “I wanted to help and serve in the health care industry,” Chan said. He graduated from Loma Linda University, School of Dentistry in 1986. Shortly after relocating to the Del Mar area, Chan opened up a dental practice. When North City West — which is now Carmel Valley — began to be developed, he said he realized the need for quality dental services for the growing planned community. So in 1990, Chan relocated his office and opened up a new facility on Carmel Country Road, where he spent the next 20 years. However, after he failed to reach a new long-term lease agreement with the landlord, Chan found himself uncertain of the future. “It was a little unsettling to pick up the business (and move) ... we didn’t know what would happen,” he said. In August 2011, Chan temporarily moved his office to
Dr. Curtis Chan at his new location. Sorrento Valley. He noted that his patients, who are very loyal, followed him. Around the start of the new year, an opportunity arose to relocate to an office on Pointe Del Mar Way in Del Mar. “We saw the potential to build a brand-new facility and jumped on the idea,” Chan said. “It’s in a perfect location, has a beautiful view ... we could now really embrace new technology.” Chan and his team of four moved into the site a couple of weeks ago, and they are ready to continue providing the services that have drawn thousands of patients over the years. As a general and cosmetic dentist, Chan said he provides all the treatment modalities one would expect to have at a state-of-the-art dental facility. He offers teeth whitening, cosmetic dental bonding and tooth replacement treatment. In addition, he utilizes his experience and up-to-date techniques in treating those with TMJ problems and helping pa-
tients experience bite optimization. Chan noted that his new facility is equipped with an ultra-clean water purification system so patients can be assured that they are treated with the ultimate dental delivery systems. Furthermore, he uses the latest in dental technology, including digital X-rays, intra-oral digital cameras and computer imaging. Chan and his dental team continue to keep up their skills through continuing education and dental conferences. “We help people achieve lifetime smiles,” Chan said. He added that his office provides the best in patient comfort, as well. There are headsets that play music, and special personal video display glasses that allow people to watch their choice of movies from a library of 100 DVDs while having their dental treatment done. Along with building quality, long-term relationships with patients, Chan also values and maintains a strong presence in the local community through service. Each year, he holds a Great Candy Buyback program, in which he pays $1 for each pound of Halloween candy brought into his office, up to $5. The candy is donated to Operation Gratitude in Los Angeles, which sends care packages to military service men and women overseas who are in harm’s way. Also, Chan helped build a dental clinic for orphans at Grace Children’s Home in Tijuana. Meanwhile, he is looking forward to seeing all of his returning dental patients and welcoming fresh faces. “We’re open to anyone who would like quality dental care,” Chan said. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and is closed one hour for lunch; hours are from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.

Artists share spotlight at juried show
Oksana A. Sergeeva and Nathan A. Jones marry Oksana A. Sergeeva and Nathan A. Jones were united in marriage on June 16, 2012 at the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort in Carlsbad by Pastor Bob Johnson of Grace Point Community Church in Carmel Valley. A reception followed at the same location and a second reception took place a week later at Lutheran Church of the Master in Omaha, Nebraska.

The bridesmaids were Olga Obraztsova, Sakina Palida, and Mika Wilbur, all – 2005 graduates of Torrey Pines High School; Nadia Abuelezam, a friend from Harvey Mudd College, and the sister of the groom, Melissa Jones. Oksana A. Sergeeva and Nathan A. The groom’s best man was the brother of the Jones groom, David Jones. The groomsmen were friends of the groom from high school and college, Joseph Jensen, Michael Fischer and Nathanael Hauser, and the brother of the bride, Ivan Sergeev, a 2008 graduate of Torrey Pines High School. The junior bridesmaid was Sonia Sergeeva, cousin of the bride. The flower girl and the ring bearer were Grace Holmquist and Eyan Loseman, cousins of the groom. The groom’s grandparents, Drs. Donna and Bruce Holmquist of Omaha, Nebraska, and the bride’s grandparents, Dr. Lydia Sergeeva and Dr. George Sergeev of Kiev, Ukraine, attended the ceremony.

A public opening reception will be held from 6:30– 8:30 p.m., Friday, Aug. 3, for the Athenaeum’s 21st annual Juried Exhibition, on view in the Joseph Clayes III and Rotunda galleries through Sept. 1. This year’s jurors — Ben Strauss-Malcolm, gallery director for Quint Contemporary Art and Jill Dawsey, associate curator for the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego — selected 48 artists to participate in the show. The jurors were tasked with combing through hundreds of slides to choose the works to be featured. First, second-, and third-place honors will be awarded by the jurors at the opening reception. Open only to artists who live, work, or have exhibited in San Diego, the Athenaeum’s juried exhibition “provides a platform for hometown artists to receive excellent exposure and to draw inspiration from talented peers,” according to Erika Torri, executive director of the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. Acceptable submissions this year included 2-D and 3-D media, with the exception of functional or craft art. All submissions were completed within the past five years.

The transformation of Lukasz Augustine — Winston School Headmaster’s Award recipient BY KARIN OLSEN College-bound Winston School graduate, The Headmaster’s Award recipient and drama standout Lukasz Augustine expected the worst when he first started attending the school for students with learning differences seven years ago. A self-described shy, and self-conscious 11-year-old, Augustine’s low self-esteem was compounded by an auditory processing disorder that made learning difficult. Feeling like an outcast at his previous schools, he said he was nervous and crying at the very idea of going to Winston as he couldn’t imagine how this new school would be different. “I had some friends, but not many and it was hard for me because the way I learned was different. It was difficult for me to get what teachers were saying,” he remembers. The first three or four months at Winston were a revelation. “I started to lighten up at the school and it was a great experience. I felt I could do the work and I get it. Once I got it, it came to me very easily. It felt great to finally get the work that the teachers handed to me.” Once he started doing well in school, Augustine still had one hurdle to overcome – shyness. In spite of or perhaps because of this, he said he felt he needed to move with the drama crowd but was skeptical. “After a couple of weeks I realized it was something I really enjoyed. Drama taught me no matter how foolish you look it’s more about being yourself and not about what other people think.” His first role was the police officer in the school’s production “And Then There Were None.” “I felt really good afterwards. It was different and it also helped me understand how to do a production and learn lines. It was fairly easy, not a cakewalk. I couldn’t get enough of it so I kept doing it.” English also became one of Augustine’s favorite subjects. A testimony to the power of good teachers, he said “I never really got what the subject was about until I met Mr. K (Jeff Kozlowski) and Mrs. (Mary) Sterling-Torretti.” He said he became more interested in literature after reading some of the classics and found the beauty of writing to be eye-opening. “I like the deep meaning behind some poetry and how
Lukasz Augustine poets expressed themselves. Shakespeare was an incredible poet and playwright. He had so much wit within his plays and there’s really a deep meaning behind them.” Musically inclined with a talent for playing guitar, violin and piano, Augustine has also extended his love for writing to lyrics. After three years in the Winston School’s storied arts programs, Augustine is inspired to study theater or music at Linfield College. “They are both pretty hard majors. I also have to think about what I’m going to do after college so I will have some stability when I get out.” Crowning his seven years at Winston, headmaster Mike Peterson recently awarded Augustine with The Headmaster’s Award at the school’s graduation ceremony. The award is the highest honor given each year to the upper school student who best exemplifies the values of The Winston School. In his introduction, Peterson began by describing the recipient as “a young person whose keen intellect, creativity and love of learning are obvious to all who know him.” In front of the packed room, Peterson went on to say, “He participates in activities with enthusiasm and a sense of community spirit that is unique among his peers. At Win-
ston he has done everything from star on stage to paint the school buildings. He is helpful to others, always remembering that his own path to success has held unanticipated challenges which he has met by drawing on all his own resources and the willing help of others. He is gentle in spirit, but never timid; impatient about seeing himself succeed but extraordinarily persistent. He is always striving to learn, to grow and to move forward in his life, but never at the expense of his own integrity.” When Peterson announced Augustine’s name, the audience cheered but wasn’t surprised. Many share Peterson’s sentiments about the shy boy who not so long ago enrolled in Winston thinking he “wasn’t good at anything.” Looking back on the last seven years, Augustine is melancholy at the prospect of leaving Winston. “The school is great, the teachers are great — everything about the school is great. I’m really going to be upset when I have to leave it’s not going to be easy. Winston really has helped me be a better individual and really helped me grow up.” His advice for everyone from students finding their way to seasoned students of life, “Be yourself. Don’t be afraid to express yourself, put yourself out there and take a chance.” For more information, visit www.thewinstonschool. com or call 858-259-8155.
