CV Middle School Science Olympiad team takes second Strong showing at regionals earns CV Middle School a spot in state competition Carmel Valley Middle School’s Science Olympiad team held a pizza party on Feb. 11 to celebrate finishing second in the San Diego Regional Competition. The team of 90 students earned a spot to compete in the state competition on April 8 in Anaheim.

School focuses on tech education

For the second year in a row, CVMS had participants organized into six teams of 15 students each. Six of the top 11 teams at the competition were from CVMS, and Carmel Valley received a first, second or third place medal in 16 of the 23 events.

Parents Bryan and Amanda Chin coordinated this year’s team and a strong group of parent volunteers have prepped the students for competition since October. “It’s just a shining example of what Carmel Valley is, what can happen when parents

really get involved,” said parent YuYu Kim. Several local businesses chipped in to help reward the students for their accomplishments with coupons for free meals. Red Robin, Einstein

Del Mar Heights employs iTouch Learning program By Karen Billing Staff Writer Del Mar Heights School has its finger on the pulse of technology learning, with its new iTouch Learning program that has kids using iPod Touches in the classroom. The students’ education is put in their own hands — they are learning valuable skills, problemsolving and integrating technology into subjects such as social studies, English, science, art, math and more. Del Mar Heights is the only school in the Del Mar Union School District to utilize iTouches and one of just a few in San Diego. Technology teacher Gail Moran said schools in the Escondido Union School District have really led the way in San Diego, thanks to generous support by Apple. Before bringing the program to Del Mar last year, Moran met with Apple

City puts brakes on reopening of bike path By Karen Billing Staff Writer The reopening of the popular Highway 56 bike path will be delayed by more than a month. The trail between Carmel Valley Road and Carmel Country Road has been closed since September and city representatives now say it won’t be open until March 31. The closure is due to work on the Carmel Valley Recycled Water Pipeline project, which will increase the supply of recycled water to the northern section of

the city. The 12,000 feet of pipeline will provide about 300 acre feet a year of recycled water to the Palacio Del Mar community, the Meadows Del Mar Golf Course and to future customers in the western portion of Carmel Valley. “The contractor has made significant progress in completing the installation of the pipeline along the bike path,” said David Manela, city project manag-

Ocean Air martial Del Mar Mesa board receives convention center expansion details arts program By Suzanne Evans Peter Johnson, vice president, public affairs for the San Diego Convention Center, updated the board Feb. 10 on the $710 million San Diego Convention Center expansion project, to be located on East Harbor Drive near Petco Park. If the design wins California Coastal Commission approval in 2012, construction could begin in 2013. The project’s addition of 870,000 square feet to the 2.6-million-squarefoot center, as well as a $42 million pedestrian bridge, would bring more jobs and millions in sales and hotel taxes for the city’s general fund from additional conventions, according to Johnson. “Our mission is to generate revenue to taxpayers and get people into restaurants, and shopping,” Johnson said. “Events leave because they don’t fit into the building.” Comments on the expansion, currently in the environmental review process, so far have noted a wish for more parks and open space, less mass impinging on water and views, less traffic, improved pedestrian access and safety. Open space advocate Fentress Architects (a Denver international design studio), partnering with John Portman & Associates for their hotel expertise, was selected from among 13 teams in an eight-week process, and has designed a five-acre open space park with a permanent outdoor performance venue for concerts, art shows, fireworks, etc. Denver–based Civitas is the project’s land planner and landscape architect, designing the 5-acre rooftop park. The project will include a 500-room hotel tower on top of a parking garage, 225,000 sq. ft. more exhibit space, a new kitchen, an 80,000 sq. ft. ballroom, a 40 percent increase in public space, an open-air promenade at night, palm trees, and 30,000 sq. ft. of shops along the waterfront As colorful slides depicted an elegant, vibrant model, Johnson praised the center’s “simple, flexible, functional design, with reduced escalators, and streamlined traffic.” Visit

A martial arts program at the Ocean Air Recreation Center, Coastal Canyon Tang Soo Do, recently donated $200 to the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation. The DMSEF is working to keep science, music, art, technology, and physical education classes in the Del Mar Union District schools. Coastal Canyon instructors Kelly Goodwin and Robert Johnson are Sage Canyon parents and they train many Ocean Air Elementary students in their program. Goodwin and Johnson understand the need for physical/intellectual balance; in addition to teaching martial arts, they both hold Ph.D.s from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Coastal Canyon offers international accredited classes in Korean karate for youth (4+), teens, and adults focusing on family fitness, safety, and fun ( Donations close for DMSEF in February; for more information, see

DM school district to show President Obama's 2nd ‘Back to School’ speech The Del Mar Union School District issued the following statement on its web site: “In September, the DMUSD students missed the opportunity to view President Obama’s 2nd Back to School Speech, due to San Diego County receiving late notification of the airing date. At that time, it was decided to give our students that opportunity by presenting it on Friday, Feb. 18, the last day of school before the Presidents’ Day holidays. Therefore, the speech will be aired in all classrooms in the DMUSD at approximately 2 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 18. Its duration time is approximately 24 minutes. “If you have any questions, feel free to contact your child’s school or the District Services Office. I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family during the Presidents’ Days holidays.” — James Peabody, superintendent

Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery opens in Del Mar Village

A construction crew trying to move a palm tree at Del Mar Highlands Town Center Feb. 16 ruptured a twoinch natural gas line, but no one was hurt. The mishap was reported at 9:15 a.m. at 12955 El Camino Real, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. Maurice Luque (in photo at right) of the SD Fire Department told KFMB-TV that at least seven businesses, including a supermarket, closed up shop voluntarily, but formal evacuations were unnecessary. A breeze helped dissipate the gas as it went into the air, he said. It was unclear how long it would take to cap the leak at presstime. — City News Service Photos/Jon Clark

By Marlena Chavira-Medford Staff Writer After 16 years in La Jolla, Dr. Paul Chasan has moved his practice into downtown Del Mar, opening Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery in early February. “When I first started as a surgeon, it made sense to be on a hospital campus,” said Chasan, who has been on the staff of Scripps Memorial Hospital since he started his practice. “But I put myself in a patient’s position, and I know nobody likes going to the hospital. I wanted this practice in Del Mar to have a warm, friendly touch. My goal is to provide the ultimate experience for patients.” To achieve that, the 5,000-squarefoot space, which was formerly a Ryan’s dress shop, has been completely gutted and transformed into a state-of-the-art complex that features two operating theatres. Landscape architect Gary Stone and architect Dean Meredith spearheaded the exterior overhaul, which will include two ponds and new public seating, and architect Mark Riley and designer Susan Spath oversaw the interior redesign. The standalone complex is the first in downtown, and though the city had put a moratorium on downtown businesses that offer personal services because none of those taxes go to the city, an agreement was reached by adding a small retail space, which will generate tax revenue for the city. Chasan’s wife, Mary, will run an inhouse boutique called Pebbles by the Sea, which will carry high-end skincare products, post-surgical compressive garments and comfort wear. In an effort to attract more foot traffic, the storefront faces Camino del Mar. Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery offers an array of surgical procedures for the face, breasts and body, walk-in Botox and filler appointments, laser hair removal, laser facial resurfacing, and esthetician services. There is also a playroom for parents with kids in tow. Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery can accommodate patients overnight, and hidden from street view is an exit door so patients can be discharged directly to their cars after surgery. “This gives our patients a way to exit discreetly, so providing that privacy was an important feature for me to include,” he explained.

Dr. Paul Chasan recently opened Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery in Del Mar Village. Courtesy photo Chasan is a board-certified member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeon, an expert on revisionary breast surgery, and routinely lectures nationally for Allergan Corporation, the maker of breast implants. He graduated Alpha Omega Alpha and Magna Cum Laude from Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Neb. He completed his general surgical residency at the University of California San Diego Medical Center and his plastic surgery residency at the University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City. Chasan holds a teaching position at UCSD’s Department of Surgery and he is a board member of Angel Faces, a nonprofit that helps teenage girls cope with facial disfigurements, which in many cases have resulted from birth defects or burn injuries. Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery is located at 1431 Camino del Mar, a block south of the Del Mar Plaza. For more information, please visit ranch&

Slater-Price to host ‘Doing business with local government’ workshop Do you sell fish food? Does your company build automatic door openers or haul tires? No matter what good or services your business provides, local government agencies could become one of your top clients. And doing business with the government is easier than you think. To explain the ins and outs of doing business with your local government, county Supervisor Pam Slater-Price is hosting a forum to connect vendors directly with purchasing agents and other top officials from regional agencies. The free workshop is scheduled for 8:30 to 11 a.m. on Feb. 25 at MiraCosta College’s San Elijo Campus, 3333 Manchester Ave., Encinitas. Refreshments will be served. “During the last fiscal year, the County of San Diego entered into more than 2,000 private contracts totaling more than $900

million,” Slater-Price said. “That translates directly into jobs. I hope to see local companies leading the charge to win those contracts.” Business owners can network with purchasing officials from the County of San Diego; MiraCosta College; San Diego County Water Authority and the San Diego Association of Governments. The Small Business Development Center of North San Diego County is co-hosting the event. Vendors can learn about business opportunities with the county by visiting Dozens of solicitations are posted, including requests for vendors of fish food, purveyors of automatic door openers and haulers of tires. Please register by contacting the office of Supervisor Pam Slater-Price at (619) 531-5533.

TECH continued from page 1 in Cupertino, looking at the philosophy behind it and the standards that young 21st century learners need to know. “I wanted to make sure it was something sound here, not just something cute and fun,” Moran said. “It’s important that they are learning tools that can have an impact on their achievement…This generation is going to be working in jobs that haven’t even been created yet, we’re looking at how we get them prepared for that.” While the program the Heights developed is called iTouch Learning, the iTL also stands for “inspiring tomorrow’s leaders,” Moran said. The pilot program was

SCREENPLAY continued from page 1 an international competition sponsored by the Wisconsin Screenwriters Forum. Eckmann learned about Bushnell through a sermon about the International Justice Mission, an organization that combats sex trafficking. When the pastor began talking about some of the first stalwarts to fight it here in the U.S., including Bushnell, Eckmann was intrigued. He spent a year learning everything he could. The more he dug, the more enthralled he became, Eckmann said. He learned that Bushnell was an extraordinary woman, one who taught herself Hebrew and Greek so she could read ancient holy texts. After finding English translations to be egocentric to men, she advocated that men and women were, in fact, equal in a more enlightened view, a radical notion for the 19th century. And when she applied for medical internship only to be shut out because of her gender, she remained steadfast, opting instead to be a medical missionary in China. There, she worked in horrible conditions and later wrote that she was “the doctor, the nurse, and the anesthetist.” Per her plea for backup, the mission organization sent Dr. Ella Gilchrist, who con-

“Using technology in the classroom is really fun and motivating,” Faulkner said. “The biggest difference I see is the motivation level of kids really increases.” She said the children are “tech natives”—they pick up new applications in no time and sometimes even help teach her how to use them. In Courtney Wildman’s

class, the children used the iPods as they worked on the Story Kit app. Students were creating a mini storybook using seven vocabulary words they recently learned (examples: flailed and hubbub). They did the illustrations for each page of their story, deftly drawing people and places using their fingers. “It helps them get better with their typing and drawing ability and their vocabulary is improving. I heard some kids in line saying they were ‘vexed’,” Wildman said with a laugh. The students’ work is then synced to the teacher’s main laptop, allowing the teacher to review and listen to assignments. “It’s better because it doesn’t use as much paper,” said student Shefali Doshi. Moran is excited as she said they are just at the tip

of finding out everything they can do with the technology—next week students will take them along on a field trip to record information learned from a docent and edit sound bites into a report when they get back to the classroom. “(Gail) is really the vision behind this pilot program, her expertise, energy and time she has put into this have really moved us forward,” said Faulkner. Moran is humble and defers some of the accolades onto Assistant Superintendent Holly McClurg, Director of Technology Michael Casey, and Principal Wendy Wardlow. “She has been incredibly supportive,” Moran said of Wardlow. “She was right there behind us 100 percent.”

blooded killer for a few minutes.” Nine screenplays later, storytelling though subtleties is an art Eckmann said he’s still learning to master. His work so far includes everything from an officer who deserts during Vietnam only to be hunted by a Japanese assassin, which is loosely based on something Eckmann witnessed while serving in the U.S. Navy during Vietnam, to a thriller about an American engineer who is on the run because he accidentally discovers topsecret information about China exchanging missiles for Saudi crude oil. The idea for that screenplay came about while Eckmann was taking economics courses at UCSD because he wanted to learn about world oil markets. “The premises for my screenplays always come from me asking myself ‘What if?’ At my last count, I had 31 ‘What if’s’ on my list.” That “What if?” mentality is indicative of how Eckmann has realized possibilities in his own life. Case in point: After reading “The Birthday Boys,” an account of the ill-fated Antarctic expedition led by Captain Scott in 1912, Eckmann decided to embark on his own wintertime adventure by walking across his home state of North Dakota. So he called the tourism department and asked to talk to someone who had made the

trek. “They called me back a few weeks later and politely told me that they could not find anyone. The Native Americans had done it in the past, but they couldn’t find anyone in modern times who had done it.” Again, he asked himself “What if?” — What if he became the first person to do it? “That set the hook. I decided to go for it.” With backing from his wife Helen, in 1995 Eckmann hiked the 370 miles in three weeks during the dead of winter. He endured wind chills 65 degrees below zero, gusts so brutal they froze one of his eyes shut. These days you won’t find Eckmann traversing any frozen terrain, you’ll find him in a classroom. He teaches as an adjunct professor at California Western School of Law, in a master’s program in supply chain management at University School of Business, at National University master's level in forensic science and at Brandman University on alternative dispute resolution. Eckmann has also written numerous articles in law-related publications, and he authored a handbook for husbands whose wives have been diagnosed with breast cancer, based on his own experience. Eckmann wrote the book at the urging of one of his wife’s doctors who told him that often times medical professionals “don’t

know what to do with or tell the husbands in these cases.” “It’s odd to write a book I hope nobody ever has to read,” he said of the experience. Eckmann has been active in the Del Mar community service since moving here in 1991. He has served on four different committees and was appointment by the Del Mar City Council to evaluate the North Torrey Pines Road bridge project currently underway. When he’s not writing, teaching, or volunteering, Eckmann is likely sifting through applications for the scholarship fund he and his family founded in 1988, The Foundation for College Christian Leaders. Eckmann, who is a father of four and grandfather of nine, started the foundation to help those who could not afford college while teaching his own children the importance of generosity. No doubt, Eckmann has a full plate, but he’ll be making time for a trip to the 2011 Screenwriting Expo in LA this fall, which is part of his first place award package. He’s looking forward to that expo, he said, because he’s “finally learned how to ask for help” and this recent win “has put a little wind under my wings.” Of course, Eckmann can’t be sure he’ll ever break into Hollywood, but then again, there’s always the “What if?”

started last spring with one third grade class. This year it has expanded to two third grade classes with 40 iPods. Moran hopes next year they can add a third class if the school can purchase 20 more iPods. Touring classrooms with students using the iPods in learning, you could hear a pin drop.

tracted tuberculosis and died, despite Bushnell’s desperate attempts to save her. Back in the U.S., Bushnell found work through the Woman's Christian Temperance Union at a facility called The Anchorage House, a home for women. It was here she first heard rumors of forced prostitution happening in Wisconsin’s lumber camps. She traveled there to see it for herself, observing nearly 600 women who were forced into brothels, commonly called “dens.” She reported that girls as young as 13 were enticed there or simply abducted. Immigrants and mentally-challenged women were especially vulnerable, as well. Once inside, the women were chained, beaten, guarded by dogs, and even burned alive. The dens went untouched because often civil leaders owned them, so law enforcement was complicit and local physicians turned a blind eye. When Bushnell blew the whistle on these dens, it caused a sensation and legislative reforms followed. Who then, could play such a heroine if the screenplay was cast? Eckmann has a few “A” list actresses in mind. “I could see her as Hillary Swank, Natalie Portman, or Claire Danes,” he said. “Maybe Jodi Foster, too.” Of course, it’d be nice to see the screenplay on the

big screen — but even if that’s not in the cards, Eckmann said he’s relishing the recent honor. “You write something, and you think it’s OK, but it’s hard to get real feedback. Especially in this industry when most of the feedback is rejection. This makes me think maybe I’m not delusional. Maybe I am getting better.” The celebrity judge for the contest was Greg DePaul, a professional screenwriter known for "Saving Silverman" and "Bride Wars." The first-place feat is all the more impressive when you consider Eckmann is largely selftaught. He spent decades as a trial attorney, but in 1996 when he was about 20 years into his practice, he hit a slump and thought, ‘Why not write a screenplay?’ “I’ve always loved to write, and I thought about writing a book, but I figured a screenplay would be easier because it’s shorter. But it’s proven to be the most difficult type of writing I’ve ever done.” That’s because a screenwriter is always speaking through the subtext. “Let’s take The Sopranos, for example. Say the FBI has tapped Tony’s house so we can hear everything, and he’s in the bathroom talking to his wife about how they need to get more fiber in their diets. The point is not the roughage. The point is humanizing this cold-

Local resident joins El Pollo Loco team as executive chairman By Arthur Lightbourn Staff Writer Sam Borgese (pronounced “Bor-jáy-zay”) has been a customer of El Pollo Loco for more than 10 years. “I eat a lot of El Pollo Loco chicken,” he says, which is good considering he will be helping to shape the future of the 412-unit restaurant chain as it emerges from the recession. The 62-year-old healthconscious Del Mar resident and restaurant industry veteran was just appointed executive chairman of the board of El Pollo Loco, Inc., the “quick-service” restaurant chain. Borgese is working “three or four days a week” with the El Pollo Loco executive team at the company’s headquarters in Costa Mesa. El Pollo Loco, (Spanish for “The Crazy Chicken”), was started in Guasave, Mexico, in 1975, and opened its first U.S. restaurant in Los Angeles 30 years ago. The chain is known for its signature flame-grilled, citrus-marinated chicken and fresh Mexican entrees. It is also the first and only restaurant chain endorsed by the Lindora Lean for Life diet plan. We interviewed Borgese recently over morning coffee at the L’Auberge Resort in Del Mar. Borgese’s appointment last month coincided with the promotion of Carlsbad resident Steve Sather, the company’s former senior vice president of operations and interim president since August, to the position of president and CEO. Among the stated goals of the new president is a renewed focus on the tried and true “hero” of the chain’s menu: the alreadymentioned flame-grilled, citrus-marinated bone-in chicken, while testing new possible side dishes, such as flame-grilled corn, cut off

Samuel Borgese (Photo/Jon Clark) the cob, flavored with chipotle chile and lime, sweet-potato fries and sweet corn cakes. With a proven track record of successfully adapting businesses to a changing consumer base and marketplace, Borgese will be “actively” involved in the revitalization strategies of the chain. “How I can help him as chairman,” Borgese said of his role in working with the new president, “is to look down the road in terms of what strategies will extend the brand outside of the core market [of California], to give it more visibility, both nationally and internationally… and to make sure it’s well-funded and financially stable.” El Pollo Loco’s 171 company-owned and 241 franchise locations are primarily situated in Southern California, with additional locations in 12 other states. Immediately prior to joining El Pollo Loco’s board, Borgese served as president and CEO of CB

Holding Corp., a New Jersey-based restaurant company with 86 locations, owned by Trimaran Capital Partners, the same New York capital equity firm that owns El Pollo Loco. El Pollo Loco was acquired by Denny’s in 1983, then by American Securities Capital Partners in 1999, and by its current owner, Trimaran Capital Partners, in 2005. Prior to serving as chief of Trimaran’s CB Holding Corp., he was president and CEO of Carlsbad-based Catalina Restaurant Group with 220 locations in the U.S. Southwest.

Under his leadership, Catalina restaurants, including Coco’s and Carrows, were revitalized, resulting in double-digit comparable same-store sales and a morethan 50 percent increase in profits in less than two years. Catalina was subsequently sold to a Japanese company. Borgese was born in Darby, Penn. He grew up in Ridley Township, a suburb of Philadelphia. His father was a union millwright who helped install large turbines in power plants. After high school, Borgese studied architectural design and engineering “for a couple of years” at Temple University. “My passion for architecture,” he said, “has always driven me beyond the structure of the university.” Borgese left Temple and headed Arcosanti, the experimental town in the Arizona desert built to embody the “arcology” (fusion of architecture with ecology) concepts of Italian-American architect Paolo Soleri. “I took workshops under Soleri for six months and then did seminars under Buckminster Fuller at Drexel University [in Philadelphia]. I was a big fan of Fuller’s geodesic domes but my main focus was on urban design and how it helps to better human interaction.” Following his passion for architecture and urban


planning, and working in construction along the way, he traveled to Hawaii, the island of Sumatra in Indonesia, and to Auroville, India, an experimental city much like Paolo Soleri’s Arcosanti. He worked with architects and helped in construction projects. On his way to India, he arrived in Del Mar on Dec. 3, 1973, at 10:30 p.m. by train, he recalls, and stayed two years working as a construction project manager before resuming his travels to India and Indonesia.

Returning to Del Mar in 1977, he married his first wife and together they ran the Kobo retail men and women’s clothing stores in Del Mar and San Francisco. That was, he says, his self-taught entry into the business world. In 1987, he was invited to join Office Club, a then privately-held office products warehouse chain with five stores doing annual sales of $45 million. As director of real estate and

Salk announces $2 million gift from Conrad T. Prebys for an endowed chair in vision research The Salk Institute for Biological Studies announced Feb. 15 a gift of $2 million from Conrad Prebys, a Salk trustee, to establish the Conrad T. Prebys Endowed Chair in Vision Research for Dr. Tom Albright. As part of their senior scientist endowed chair challenge, Joan and Irwin Jacobs will match the donor's gift with an additional $1 million to establish the donor's named chair at $3 million. "This unique gift will help change the way we view the world," said Salk Institute President William R. Brody. "The discoveries from Tom's lab will illuminate the mechanics of information processing in these high-level visual areas and define their unique contributions to visual per-

ception and visually guided behavior." Conrad Prebys is the owner of Progress Construction Company and a developer of real estate enterprises in California and Texas. He is a major philanthropist in San Diego, inspired to share his good fortune with the local community, and is actively building a legacy of generosity throughout the region. A native of South Bend, Indiana, Prebys was raised in a neighborhood where most of the residents worked in local factories. Encouraged by an inspirational teacher, he was the first of five brothers to graduate from a university. "I couldn't be more pleased to support this extraordinary research. To work

with the Salk on discoveries that can potentially impact millions of people is what draws me to the Institute. Supporting this caliber of groundbreaking science under the leadership of Dr. Albright is inspiring," said Prebys. Thomas D. Albright is a professor and director of the Vision Center Laboratory at the Salk Institute. Throughout his career, he has been seeking new avenues to understand the neuronal structures and events that underlie visual perceptual experience, and their contributions to knowledge, behavior, and consciousness.

‘A Toast to Torrey’ event benefitting Torrey Pines High Nazi death camp survivor to address CV at March 3 event School to be held at RSF estate Chabad of Carmel Valley is presenting a special lecture by Phillip Philip Bialowitz on Thursday, March 3, at 7 p.m. in the Hilton Garden Inn on 3939 Ocean Bluff Avenue. Bialozitz is one of eight living survivors of the infamous Nazi death camp, Sobibór, where an estimated 250,000 people perished between 1942 and 1943. There, he joined a small group of Jewish prisoners who overpowered their captors and freed approximately 200 of the camp’s 600 slave laborers – an incredible example of resistance to persecution. Over the past 20 years, Bialowitz has lectured frequently to diverse audiences in North America and Europe about both his experiences at Sobibór and the continued importance of mutual respect among people of different beliefs. He has testified at several war crimes trials. Bialowitz’ memoir has been published in English (title: “A Promise at Sobibór: A Jewish Boy’s Story of Revolt and Survival in Nazi-Occupied Poland”) and in Polish (title: “Bunt w Sobibórze”). A curriculum based on Bialowitz’s book has been developed for Polish schools


by the Museum of the History of Polish Jews. In 2008, Bialowitz was interviewed extensively for the forthcoming documentary, Hidden Holocaust at Sobibór. Bialowitz resides in New York City, where he settled after the Holocaust and worked as a jeweler prior to retiring. “Chabad of Carmel Valley is presenting this lecture as part of it’s rich educational programs, we believe that it’s very important, especially for the youth to hear first hand experiences from individuals who have lived through the horrifying experiences of the holocaust,” says Rabbi Hirsch Piekarski, director of Chabad of Carmel Valley. The tickets are $25 per person at the door and refreshments will be served. You can also become an event sponsor for $180, which will include reserved tickets for 2, VIP reception with author and personal autographed book. We anticipate this lecture to be very well attended, at maximum capacity; teenagers are welcome and encouraged to attend. For additional information, please contact Rabbi Hirsch Piekarski at (858) 755-1886 or via email at

Local tennis champion shines on courts around world By Karen Billing Staff Writer Local resident Carolyn Nichols headed down to New Zealand this week, serving as the captain of the Maureen Connolly Cup Team for women 55 and older at the International Tennis Federation’s Seniors World Championships. The United States Tennis Association named Nichols as captain after her stellar accomplishments in 2010. “I had one of the best years I’ve ever had,” said Nichols, who is currently ranked number one in her age group in the U.S. and second in the world in her age group. In 2010 she won both the clay court and hard court nationals and played in a whopping 107 tournament matches. Nichols said the secret behind her big, best year was that her serve got more consistent, her backhand got better and maybe, she said, “ it was just believing.” “It’s a goal for a lot of players to make a cup team and that’s what keeps me striving, to represent the United States. For me it’s huge,” Nichols said. “I’m playing as the number one

and it’s scary, but it’s exciting. It’s a lot of pressure, but as Billy Jean King said ‘Pressure is a privilege.’” Nichols is new to the area, having moved to this area last June from Lodi, Calif. She also has a home in Florida and plays tennis yearround. In addition to her busy practice and playing schedule, she serves on USTA and International Tennis Federation boards and committees, helping to promote the leagues and their players. Nichols started playing tennis competitively in high school in 1969. “I wasn’t very good,” Nichols said, noting that preTitle IX (a law enacted in 1972 that required equal opportunities for everyone in sports), she just played in PE class and when they finally did have a team, she didn’t make the cut. She started playing national age division competitions in 1989 and the success she has experienced has come from working hard and having the determination to improve. “You can always strive to get better against players that are your age,” Nichols said. “I maybe can’t compete with 18-year-olds, but I can get

Carolyn Nichols (Courtesy photo) better visa vi my peers.” In her career she has won 21 national championships in age group play, winning the coveted “golden ball,” the same prize handed out to winners of the U.S. Open. She has represented her country in tournaments all over the world and, in

2010, she also won the 80plus age group father-daughter hard court championship with her father, Graydon. Graydon is currently number one in the 85’s age group and was inducted into the Northern California Tennis Hall of Fame two years ago, with Nichols giv-

ing his introduction. Nichols just received word that she will be inducted into the same Hall of Fame in July—her father will return the favor with her introduction. For father and daughter, tennis really is a lifetime sport. “It’s great exercise, you feel better after you play and it’s so much more fun than getting on the treadmill or elliptical,” Nichols said. Another great aspect of her tennis career is the places she’s been able to go. She’s played in South Africa, where monkeys scurried across the tops of the fences and ran onto the court stealing bananas; to Buenos Aires; and seven times to Turkey at a venue where there are 60 clay courts. One tournament spot in Austria, Bad Hofgastein, was so beautiful Nichols said it didn’t even look real. For cups tournaments, USTA provides a stipend for airfare and lodging, as well as team gear. Other than team events, players are on their own—tournaments outside of the U.S. pay some pretty good prize money, Nichols said. For the Seniors World

Carolyn Nichols on the court. Championships running Feb. 21-26 in New Zealand, Nichols flew out of LA on Tuesday morning to arrive 12 hours later in Auckland. After the tournament, she will fly back to the U.S., only to jet off again to Florida, where she will get some clay court practice in before the clay court championships, where she will defend her title. The clay court championships will be held in Houston, March 21-27.

Photonics and life sciences converge at Salk Institute By Lynne Friedmann Contributor Think back on your experience using a microscope. For many of us it a simple instrument in high school biology class that used visible light to magnify the surface of small, preserved objects. In the last 100 years, the science of microscopy has made phenomenal advances with technology now available that can reveal even the subcellular components of living cells. The frontiers of this new technology — known as biophotonics — were on display at the grand opening of the Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center at the Salk Institute for Biological S t u d i e s

( . “We are able to image even single molecules. This was something I was taught (in school) was impossible,” said Salk President William R. Brody before an audience of researchers, board members, and donors who gathered for the dedication and a facilities tour on Feb. 9. Launched with a $20 million pledge from the Waitt Foundation, the Waitt Advanced Biphotonics Center serves as a state-ofthe-art research hub within the Salk Institute, enabling investigators across many disciplines to gain unprecedented insight into the inner workings of cells and tissues. “It affects every aspects

ences and is widely regarded as the key science upon which the next generation of clinical tools and biomedical research instrumentation will be based. By observing how single molecules and cells function in real time and deciphering what goes wrong when they malfunction, scientists will learn, among other things, how certain diseases develop, how a cell turns cancerous, and how neurons in a living brain respond to stress, exercise, learning and diet. The resolution of conventional optical microscopes is limited by the wavelength of light. Biophotonic yields superresolution live-cell imaging that allows researchers to capture short videos of fast-

moving cellular processes while discerning the precise location of nearly each individual protein they are studying. A video presentation during the Waitt Center dedication presented images so detailed and powerful they elicited gasps (and even an appreciative whistle) by audience members. “I did this for the work that will come out of it,” said Ted Waitt, vice chairman of the Salk’s board of trustees, of the Waitt Foundation donation. “It’s just a tool put in the hands of the right people,” said Waitt. “Let’s see what you can do.” — Lynne Friedmann is a science writer based in Solana Beach.

the timeline has frequently changed. Signs posted read it would re-open on May 15, then Jan. 15, then the city said Feb. 15, then March 15 and now March 31. “I’m disappointed that it’s delayed,” said Stephan Bar, a Carmel Valley rider. “This will make it a fivemonth closure, it seems like a long time. As a cyclist it’s always a plus to cycle without

worrying about car traffic.” Bar said that he has ridden less since the closure as he finds the detour inconvenient. “It has a lot of left turns and crosses the freeway twice,” Bar said. The detour includes sidewalks on Carmel Country Road, Del Mar Heights Road and Carmel Valley Road. Eastbound, riders take

Carmel Country north, Carmel Canyon north, Del Mar Heights east, and Carmel Valley Road south. Westbound it is the opposite. Perhaps the only good news for users affected by the closure is that when it opens, the new path will be much smoother, without the humps that have been caused by tree roots over the years.

CV nurse, actress to perform in production of ‘The Crucible’ By Diane Y. Welch Contributor In what may appear to be two vastly different roles, Carmel Valley resident Susan Farese expresses her creativity. On the one hand she is a licensed nurse and on the other she is an actress. This duality has been of benefit to Farese's professional journey throughout her life. “I'm happiest when I'm being creative and I love blending the science of nursing with the art of acting,” she said. As a nurse Farese expressed herself as a poet. In 1993 she wrote a nursing poetry book and designed seminars for nurses to teach poetry as a cathartic stress management tool. In films she is often cast as a nurse. Her most recent nurse role is in the television series “Men of A Certain Age” which will air this summer. “I'm able to bring that nursing demeanor to the part because I know that life intimately,” Farese said. She has also served as an on-set medical consultant for scene set-up and realism where shooting included hospital or medical settings. With versatile interests, Farese (who is not currently active as a registered nurse) has worked in television, film, commercials, internet and stage. In movies she is cast primarily in extra roles but has had several credited roles. Farese does voice-over work, public speaking and presents industrial seminars, and her talents include song and dance. In 2006 she won an award as part of a female ensemble for her role as Mrs. Greer in the musical “Annie,” staged in San Jose. Some of the movies she has worked in include “Edge of Darkness,” “The Dead Sleep,” “The Kite Runner,” “The Invention of Lying” and many more. While her

Susan Farese film roles are minor, immersion in the creative process is what draws Farese to the industry and to be able to portray a nurse in a positive light is very important to her. Farese's nursing career began in 1978 when she was a Navy nurse stationed at what is now the Naval Medical Center San Diego across from Balboa Park. She also served in the Army Nurse Corps from 1981-90, attaining the rank of Major. She later went on to work in the civilian sector. A recent transplant from the Boston area, where she worked primarily in film and television, Farese moved with her husband and daughter, Emmy, who is also an actress, to Carmel Valley last summer. “It's joyful to be back in San Diego,” she said. For the past five years acting has taken center stage. With the recent downturn in San Diego's movie industry, Farese looked to live theater for her next acting role and was successful in her audition with San Diego's Pickwick Players. The opportunity to work in community theater was a welcome one for Farese who is a member of both the Screen Actor's Guild and the American Federation of Television and

Radio Artists. From Feb. 24 through March 6, the Pickwick Players will present Arthur Miller's “The Crucible.” The play will be staged at Moxie's Rolondo Theatre in San Diego. Directed by Kenn Burnett and produced by Luc R. Pelletier, “The Crucible” has a central theme of the 1692 Salem witch trials. Miller fictionalized the trials in 1953 as a parable for the McCarthy-era political “witch hunts” where citizens were accused of being communists. Farese has been cast in two roles, Martha Corey and Sarah Good. Although the parts are secondary they are integral to the plot, she said. Corey was accused of witchcraft by her own husband because he was suspicious of the books that she was reading, but when he would not testify in court, he was crushed to death by stones. Sarah Good is a homeless decrepit, filthy character who is a beggar and, as such, she was one of the first accused of witchcraft by Tituba, said Farese, who was drawn to audition for the play because of its theme. In Boston she had visited the Salem Museum several times where they give presentations about the subject of the trials. “So I already had a deep interest in the play,”she said. The play opens on Thursday, Feb. 24, with a champagne reception and has a two-week run. Visit Pickwick Players online for show times and to purchase tickets at or call the box office at 619-448-5673. The Moxie Theatre is located at 6663 El Cajon Blvd., Suite N, San Diego, CA 92115.

LOCO continued from page A7 construction, he helped grow the company and completed a $248 million merger with Office Depot in 1991 that created the nation’s largest office products superstore at that time. He had shares in the company and “made out all right,” financially, he said, as a result of the merger. Afterwards, Borgese became a consultant to private equity and venture capital firms, advising them on their real estate portfolios for retail companies that wanted to expand. He subsequently invested in and became the CEO of a technology company that made software for retail and restaurant chains. “So I found myself in a brand new sector, technology,” he said, with a connection

to the restaurant industry. He sold the company in 2002 to a company in Israel. In 2003, he joined the Catalina Restaurant Group as its chief technology officer and nine months later was appointed president and CEO. “We improved the business and in 2006 sold it to a venture group out of Japan, the largest food service company in Japan.” He continued to work for Catalina until he joined CB Holding Corp. as president and CEO in April 2009. CB Holding is the parent company and corporate support for Charlie Brown’s Steakhouse, Bugaboo Creek Steak House and The Office Beer Bar. Borgese said El Pollo Loco, as were many restaurants, was adversely affected by the recession. As a result, El Pollo Loco had to take a hard look at all aspects of its business, including menus, dis-

counting, service, quality and marketing. “El Pollo Loco has a great product. Maybe the value proposition wasn’t promoted as well during the recession as it could have been … It is the best price-to-quality ratio … and we are completely focused on communicating that to people now.” In the past, El Pollo Loco worked with two advertising agencies, one for the Hispanic market and the other for the general market. Now it has one agency to do both. Some of the new creative and new menu items will begin appearing in the second quarter. In the new economy, Borgese said, “We have to focus on what exists today and getting it right. “Then we can explore other options,” he said, including expansion into other states and perhaps internationally.

House agenda will hurt women’s health Too many women and families cannot afford the health care they need and deserve. Prices are rising even as the economy continues to struggle, and women continue to earn less than men. To make matters worse, new House leadership and Rep. Mike Pence are aggressively pushing a dangerous agenda to take health care away from women. Recently, House leaders launched the most devastating legislative assault on women’s health care in American history. They are aiming to eliminate the national family planning program, known as Title X, and they want to deny Planned Parenthood the federal funds it receives to provide affordable cancer screenings, birth control, HIV testing and counseling, and STD testing and treatment. Simply put, their legislative attack will cut off health care to millions of women who need it the most. Under the guise of deficit reduction, these House leaders, who share an extreme agenda, are working to end this popular and effective program that does so much to prevent unintended pregnancy and provide essential health care. If they succeed, millions of women across the country will lose access to basic primary and preventive health care, such as lifesaving cancer screenings, contraception, HIV testing and counseling, and annual exams. Sixty percent of the women who are cared for by Planned Parenthood and similar health centers report that these centers are

their only source of health care. More than 90 percent of the care Planned Parenthood health centers offer is preventive, yet Rep. Pence is steadfast in wanting to defund Planned Parenthood, because it also provides women with abortion care. Every year, Planned Parenthood doctors and nurses carry out nearly one million lifesaving screenings for cervical cancer and 830,000 breast exams. Eliminating this program means that more women will go untreated and will discover too late that they have cancer. They also provide contraception to nearly 2.5 million patients and nearly four million tests and treatments for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Title X saves lives. As for fiscal discipline and deficit reduction, family planning programs like Title X save money. For every public dollar invested in family planning, taxpayers save nearly $4. Yet, in their ideological zeal to attack women’s health, the House leadership doesn’t seem to care. The House leadership is clearly out of touch with the needs and wishes of the American people, especially those of women. These extreme proposals are bad policy, bad politics and bad for the health of women. That’s why we urge Congress to reject this dangerous assault on women’s health.

Kudos on two stories I commend you, Del Mar Times, for putting the Islam textbook story at the top of your page 1 on Feb. 10. For the simple reason that this is unarguably one of the most important issues facing our country today, as well as the world. The politicians try to dodge and downplay it because, well, they are politicians. They can try to make a molehill out of a mountain, but the facts are the facts and there is no way they can be altered or minimized. The worst thing we can do is sweep them under the rug (there are so many cliches that apply) as opposed to the contribution that you just made, which may seem such a little thing but (to apply another cliche) little things mean a lot and (one of my own) every snowball is first a snowflake. I also want to give a

thumbs up to your "10 Questions" interviewee, Julie Maxey-Allison, for her intelligent replies to your standard question, "If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or dead) would you invite?" A question that has always intrigued me because it says so much about the interviewee, in many ways more than the person's credentials and replies to other questions. The name of one invitee stood out for me, the most important creative force in the history of America's only authentic and original art form: Jazz. The name every educated person today should know all about, but so appallingly few do. The immortal Duke Ellington! Jim Donovan Del Mar

Textbooks issue: State standards biased I read the article “Parents critical of high school textbook” in your last issue. I also noticed the bias in favor of Islam in my daughter’s 7th grade history text. I spoke with the principal and history teacher at Earl Warren. I was concerned that the other two monotheistic faiths were not represented equally. They said they were following the state standards. I then looked up the standards and saw that Judaism and Christianity are supposed to be covered in 6th grade. I knew they were not covered in detail in my daughter’s previous year. I went and spoke

with the principal at Solana Pacific. He said that sixth-grade history is taught by multi-subject instructors that provide a brief overview of history. Seventh grade history is taught by single subject teachers that provide much more depth and detail. How messed up is that? Obviously, our state standards are biased. Thank you for reporting on this important topic. Please let Michael Hayutin, Linda Sax and James Freedman know they are not alone in their concern regarding what our kids are being taught.

‘Moms Making Six Figures’ allows women to earn money while maintaining family life

Bob Baker Auto Group to open first Fiat dealership in San Diego County

By Karen Billing Through her company Moms Making Six Figures, Heidi Bartolotta is all about finding balance between work and family. She started the business two-and-a-half years ago after leaving a job at a pharmaceutical company primarily because of her two daughters, Katie and Rebecca. She wanted more flexibility to pick her children up from school, see the piano recitals and participate in the everyday activities that she didn’t have time for before. “It’s completely changed my life,” Bartolotta said of her new venture. Moms can now transform their homes into a successful business operation. Moms Making Six Figures currently has a team of 32 women working from the comfort of their homes. The women come from a variety of different careers, from a CPA to a surgeon. And there is room to grow. Bartolotta is limited by

Chris Baker, president of Bob Baker Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Mazda, Subaru, Volkswagen and now Fiat, all in Carlsbad, is very excited about this unique opportunity. “With the re-introduction of Fiat you will be able to experience the enthusiasm of Italian motoring right here in North County.” He went on to say that the line will debut with the Fiat 500 but plans for many other models are in the works.

Heidi Bartolotta with her daughters. what she can say about the company, but promises there is no selling, no inventory, no party plan and no risk. “The best way to explain it is we are a group of moms who created a marketing organization and we represent one primary company, ” she said. “It gives moms the freedom to create an income and

still have a family life.” More and more women are finding they need to have a way to supplement their income and it’s not always easy to find a job that works.

Bumper To Bumper Q. Walter: I’m sure you have answered this question before, but what is the difference between leasing and buying a new vehicle? I have never leased before but I try and get a new vehicle at least every five years. One of my co-workers said I Dave Stall should lease if I keep buying every five years. He said I am losing money by buying. I read your column every week and enjoy the information. A. Dave: My rule of thumb is if you are only going to keep a car for five years or less (usually the length of the lease), then I recommend leasing. If you keep vehicles for five to ten years or longer, then buying is a better deal. If you don’t know if you are going to like the vehicle you have picked out, then leasing is a good way to find out. At the end of the lease, you can refinance the vehicle and keep it if you would like, give it back, or sell it outright. A bonus to leasing is that it keeps a lot of your money in the bank with reasonable payments. The biggest pitfall to leasing is mileage. Most lease companies will give you 12,000 to 15,000 miles but if you go over your mileage, you will be charged for the extra miles — 10 to 15 cents a mile. You are also responsible for the condition of the vehicle — scratches, dents, worn tires, etc. Remember when you lease it is not your vehicle. If you are considering leasing, always make sure to see if there is a penalty to ending the lease early. Good luck! Q. Hal: I have a 1988 Ford pickup that my dad gave me. I love the truck and it runs just fine. The problem is that it leaks a little bit of oil on my driveway. My wife is having a fit! She hates to see her driveway get messy. I have had a couple of estimates to stop the leaks, but

by Dave Stall

everyone I have talked to wants to reseal the engine, which means a complete engine overhaul. I have been reading your column since you started and I remember you saying if it’s not broken don’t fix it. Since the truck runs well and passes smog, what product would you recommend I put in the crankcase to stop the oil leaks? A. Dave: I don’t recommend putting anything in the crankcase. If it leaks, let it leak. Just keep a close eye on the oil level and put the truck on the side of the house or in the street. You might even ask your wife if she wouldn’t mind if you put a drip pan in the driveway and promise to wipe it clean every day. You are correct: if it isn’t broken don’t mess with it. I have a truck myself that leaks oil, not a lot, but enough that I can’t park in the driveway either. Tell your wife when it comes time to rebuild the engine that is when you will fix it. My truck has 297,445 miles on it. I’m still saving money to rebuild the engine. Q. Roy: I heard on the radio the other day that if it is raining, you have to turn on your headlights. If not, a police offer can pull you over and give you a ticket. Is this true? What is the reasoning? I have been driving for over 40 years and never heard of such a thing. I’m not originally from San Diego and where I lived it rained a lot harder and a lot more, but we never had such a silly law. Also it is going to cause a lot of folks to have dead batteries. A. Dave: I agree with you on the point about dead batteries, but I feel having your lights on when it rains must make sense from a safety point of view. I am on the road all day long and it gives me a sense of security to have my lights on and yours too, especially your taillights. I wouldn’t get too upset about this new law. Your first offense will most likely be a warning. I would suggest walking around your vehicle to check your lights before leaving, especially if your vehicle will not warn you that your lights are left on. It doesn’t rain that much in San Diego anyway so all is good.

Director seeks cause of Kawasaki disease Kawasaki disease is the most common cause of acquired heart disease in children, yet its cause remains largely unknown. It’s a mystery local resident Jane Burns has dedicated more than two decades to help solve. Burns is the director of the Kawasaki Disease Research Center at UCSD/Rady Children’s Hospital where she leads a multidisciplinary team that cares for about 80 new Kawasaki disease patients each year and follows more than 1,200 Jane Burns families in the clinic. Her husband, Dr. John B. Gordon, is an interventional cardiologist who cares for adults with long-term after-effects of Kawasaki disease (KD). Together, the married couple and a team from UCSD have launched The Adult KD Collaborative, a long-range epidemiologic and clinical study of cardiovascular biomarkers and functional studies in adults who suffered from KD in childhood. Burns, who is also a mother of two daughters, earned her M.D. degree at the University of North Carolina and completed her pediatric residency and chief residency at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver. In 1983, Burns went to Harvard Medical School and the Boston Children’s Hospital for additional training in pediatric infectious diseases and molecular virology. She joined the faculty at Harvard in 1986 and in 1990 moved to San Diego and joined the faculty at the University of California, where she was appointed Chief of the Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Rheumatology in 2000. 1. What brought you to this neighborhood? My husband was recruited to join the San Diego Cardiac Center and I was the tag-along spouse. I am a native Californian and I was eager to move back to California to raise my children. We were living in Boston at the time with two small children so we took turns flying out. John came back from his recruiting trip and said that he wanted to move to

Local students to perform in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ at SD Civic Theatre The greatest family musical of all time, “The Wizard of Oz,” is touching down in San Diego as Broadway/San Diego ~ A Nederlander Presentation brings this national treasure to the San Diego Civic Theatre, now through Feb. 20. This magical production, based on the Royal Shakespeare Company’s celebration of the 1939 MGM movie, is presented with breathtaking special effects that will sweep audiences away, from the moment the tornado twists its way into Kansas. Twelve children from San Diego’s J* Company will be performing the roles of “munchkins”: Marissa Wolfsheimer, Megan Spector, Nathan Miller, Adira Rosen, Rebecca Penner, Jonas McMullen, Sierra Lieb, Gabriel Mayer, Sebastian Mayer and Danya Greenberg. Singing timeless classics such as “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead,” the local children will help bring this beloved classic to the stage of their hometown as part of their continuing performing arts education. Local performers include: Megan Spector: Although The Wizard of Oz is Megan’s first national tour production, the 10-year-old Solana Highlands student is no stranger to the stage, having been in “Annie, Snoopy!!! The Musical, Sound of Music and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” She considers her younger brother a ham, even though he is not in show biz. Currently, Megan takes piano, voice and guitar lessons. In pre-school, Megan’s teacher would bribe her with Otter Pops to sing for the other teachers. Nathan Miller: 10-year-old Nathan is a 5th grader at Torrey Pines Elementary. Nathan’s

parents, who own Geppetto’s Toys, knew he was going to be a performer because by the time he was two, he knew all the songs from “The Sound of Music.” His little brother Jared is not in theatre … yet, but loves watching Nathan on stage. Nathan’s dream role would be to play Oliver, and he can’t live without the Wicked soundtrack. Jonas McMullen: 12-year-old Jonas is in the 5th grade in Del Mar. He started doing theatre after a broken collarbone prevented him from playing competitive soccer. His favorite credit so far is How The Grinch Stole Christmas at the Old Globe. Jonas’ top career choices include doctor, lawyer or actor. His favorite word is “chillax.” Sierra Lieb: 11-year-old Sierra attends Sage Canyon Elementary and enjoys math and writing. She has done eight shows with J*Company, her favorite being “The Sound of Music,” and was very excited when she got to sing a song from it on KUSI. Her mom is a teacher and her dad has a local law firm, Lieb and Lieb. Sierra loves sandwiches, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and rainbow sherbet. For tickets and more information visit: or

Meet Your Neighbor: SB artist a finalist for prestigious event

La Jolla Cultural Partners

By Diane Y. Welch Contributor Solana Beach plein air artist Toni Williams recently received the news that she is a finalist in this year's acclaimed Borrego Springs Plein Air Invitational, sponsored by the Borrego Art Institute. Out of hundreds of applicants, county-wide, only 15 artists Toni Williams are invited to participate in the prestigious annual plein air art event that takes place from March 14-19 around various locations in the Borrego Springs area. On the last day of painting the public is invited to an exhibition and reception where awards are given for outstanding work. All of the paintings on display have been completed during the six-day event. “We love to think of it as fresh, glistening, wet paintings for sale and collectors love that,” said Williams. “It's brand new, fresh and it's done immediately, outdoors, not done in the studio.” Pieces that do not sell will be exhibited at the institute

through April 5. Joli Beal, another Solana Beach artist, will also be taking part in the event News of the invitation came on the heels of Williams taking part in a three-day intensive plein air (painting outdoors) workshop in the desert. With a small group of six artists, Williams found herself immersed in isolated locations capturing the unique desert landscape. The class was led by Mark Kerckhoff, a master at plein air technique, and although already an award-winning plein air artist herself — she placed first in the “2010 Southwestern Art Association September Plein Air Competition” and was “Annual Best Plein Air Painter” for the Plein Air Laguna Association, 2009 — Williams said she learned a lot in those three days, tips that will help her for the Borrego Springs Invitational event. “In the desert, conditions differ from other landscape painting. The air is dryer so there is less atmospheric perspective; things in the distance have great clarity. Blues and purples are used—high key colors—to create a dramatic effect. It's magical.” Williams has been a professional artist and muralist for 15 years. She is a member of several

A landscape painting by Toni Williams. professional art associations: Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild, San Dieguito Art Guild, Oil Painters of America, California Art Club and the American Impressionists Society, as a “Signature Member.” Her work has been in the Randall M. Hasson Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the Cedros Village Fine Art Gallery. Several of her pieces are currently on display at the San Diego History Center’s store in Balboa

Park, the Rancho Santa Fe Art Gallery, the Offtrack Gallery in Encinitas, and the Ivanffy-Uhler Gallery in Carlsbad. Growing up in Port Jervis, NY, Williams was raised in an artistic family. Her father was a master carpenter, crafting furniture and masonry, and her mother was in the arts and antiques business. As a child, Williams said she felt like she lived in an antique shop. In 1972, Williams moved to San Diego to finish her

education at the University of California San Diego, earning a bachelor’s degree in visual arts and has lived in Solana Beach for 30 years with her husband Scott. Williams said her work has been influenced greatly by turnof-the-century San Diego plein air artists Maurice Braun, Charles Fries and William Wendt. She also paints the human form and has studied under the tutelage of friend and mentor Marileigh Schulte, and attended workshops with notable local artists Ray Roberts, Peggi Kroll-Roberts and Pat Kelly. Williams is giving her own plein air painting workshops, at various locations in San Diego, through the month of February, to benefit the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild. Looking ahead, Williams will take part in the San Clemente plein air competition in June and is applying to other California plein air festivals. “That's my focus, I'm very drawn to the arid and temperate climate of Southern California,” she said.

Collector opens unique map museum in La Jolla By Susan DeMaggio Staff Writer What do you do with a 10-foot-square temperature-controlled closet full of rare and remarkable maps that you’ve carefully and joyfully collected over the last 20 years? If you’re local resident Michael Stone, financier, philanthropist and father of three, you check with your wife, Karen, and then you create a Map & Atlas Museum in La Jolla with the hope of sharing your treasures with the next generation and your community. At the Feb. 8 opening of the handsomely appointed La Jolla Map &

IF YOU GO What: La Jolla Map & Atlas Museum Where: 7825 Fay, Suite LL-A, lower level Merrill Lynch Building When: Open by appointment Admission: Free Contact: (858) 551-1170

Sue and Chuck Burges talk with musician Ryan Miller. Atlas Museum on the lower level of the Merrill Lynch Building on Fay Avenue, Stone told friends and family that “It’s my hope that this museum will become a national model; that it will turn the map experience into an educational experience for children and visitors of all ages.” Stone said his next step is to get a docent program up and running to allow public access, and to increase the museum’s exposure to the greater San Diego area. Stone’s noteworthy collection contains some

500 maps and atlases that span the 1400s to mid1900s with “items that would be considered rare cartographic material — and most have some critical importance in a historical or political context,” he added. Indeed. Like his 1777 “Theatre of the American Revolution” map produced to inform the French public of Burgoyne’s surrender to the American Army at Saratoga. Or his fur trade map from the 1600s with an ominous red line down the

watercourse between Labrador and Nova Scotia dividing the French and British “interests” in North America. Or his fanciful 1958 “Southern California Roads to Romance” map, once a developer’s marketing dream. Family friend Melissa Fay moved through the museum studying the maps with awe. “You can learn a lot about people’s perceptions of the world by looking at their maps,” she said. “And the maps are really amazing works of art when you consider that they were all done by hand – no computers or graphic designers back then.” Stone, 48, is originally from Connecticut. He moved to this area with his family seven years ago, He said his fascination with maps blossomed with a visit to the Lancaster, Pa. fair when he was dating Karen. A vendor was selling maps and their beauty and educational value captivated him. Stone attended Duke University and Harvard Business School, going on to establish the private firm Westwind Investors. He serves on the board of the San Diego Museum of Art and also advises the board of the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library. His love of old maps led him to befriend Barry Ruderman, 48, who’s become “the largest online antiquarian map seller in the world,” and Daniel Crouch, 36, who created the map and atlas department of Bernhard Shapero Rare Books in London. Both men spoke at the museum opening and

Crouch advised viewers to keep three things in mind when looking at maps from antiquity — practicality, politics and price. “One of the earliest maps ever discovered from about 1380, covered the seas and basically said at the bottom corner, ‘There are really good fish here.’ That was practical information back then!” In regard to a map’s politics, the elaborately illustrated Dutch maps

of slopes. The lines are short, heavy, and close together for steep slopes; longer, lighter, and more widely spaced for gentle slopes. Key or Legend: An explanation of what the symbols on a map represent Scale: A reader’s key to the mathematical principles the mapmaker used to shrink the representation of space, size, and distance, such as “1 inch = 250 miles.” Source: from the 1600s clearly tout their trading prowess. The price of a map was (and is) determined by its details and the materials it’s made from — those made for kings and courtesans were (and remain) costly and valuable possessions. Though none of the items in the museum are for sale, visitors who are interested will be directed to vendors. Stone declined to comment on the value of his collection.

‘Five Course Love —A Gala’ to benefit North Coast Repertory Theatre

Daniel Meyers is the interpreter of dreams in the J*Company musical ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ through March 10 at the JCC’s Garfield Theatre in La Jolla.

J*Company to stage ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ The J*Company Youth Theatre, a program of the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture, will present “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” Feb. 25-March 13 at the Garfield Theatre in La Jolla. The musical tells the story of how, though beset with adversity, Joseph perseveres through wit, faith “and a rockin’ 21st century score” to become the governor of Egypt, second in command only to the Pharaoh. Jason Chase directs the production that stars Daniel Myers, 18, of High Tech High as Joseph, along with 18 other local students in supporting roles, including David Ahmadian, Alexander Barwin, Talia Berkstein, Evan Bramberg, Samuel Brogadir, Cameron Chang, Jacob Davis, Jonathan Edzant, Emily Hoolihan, Mady Maio, Michael McDaniel, Rebecca Myers,

IF YOU GO What: J* Company musical “Joseph and the Amazing T e c h n i c o l o r Dreamcoat” When: 8 p.m. Feb. 26, March 5 and 12; 1 and 4:30 p.m. Feb. 27, March 6 and 13; 7 p.m. March 10 Where: Garfield Theatre, Jewish Community Center, 4126 Executive Drive, La Jolla Tickets: $14-$16. (858) 3 6 2 - 1 3 4 8 . Scott Peterson, Ethan Rappaport, Ashlen and Darien Sepulveda, Joshua Shtein and Megan Spector. “We are fortunate to have Jason Chase, one of the foremost experts on “Joseph and the Amazing

Technicolor Dreamcoat” working with our young artists as both the director and music director,” said Joey Landwehr, J* Company’s artistic director. “One of the best things about ‘Joseph’ is the malleability of the production; if done right, the audience will never see the same show twice. “All of the well-loved songs will be here – but with a unique interpretation that will make the production surprising and full of fun.” As an educational component, the cast will send to public officials, including San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, Gov. Jerry Brown, and President Obama, letters on the importance of arts funding and the impact of arts education on the lives of teens. They will also attend a performance of “Turandot” at the San Diego Opera.

Hitler desk set temporarily on display at SB collector’s office By Diane Y. Welch Contributor Craig Gottlieb was bitten by the collector's bug when he was a kid. Unlike other kids his age, though, his interests weren't in commonplace objects like coins, stamps, or comics. Instead, Gottlieb collected daggers. It's a fascination that has stayed with him all his life and over the years his collection has grown to include other weapons, U. S. militaria and Nazi collectibles. What has catapulted Gottlieb into the spotlight recently is the bronze desk set that Adolf Hitler used to sign the Munich Pact in 1938, which is temporarily displayed in Gottlieb's Solana Beach office, along with his permanent collection of Nazi uniforms, war posters, medals, swords and World War II weapons and memorabilia. The desk set, with the initials A. H., and its stained patina, is a verified piece of World War II history, “on which the fate of nations was decided,” said Gottlieb, 39, who is the selling agent for owner Jack McConn, a former Army Lieutenant who was in Hitler's headquarters in 1945 when the war ended. McConn was 21 when he

Welch. took the 50-pound souvenir, which includes two large inkwells, a large blotter, and a heavy base. “I boxed it up, and sent it to my dad in Houston and believe it or not, it got there!” said McConn, who also wrote a letter to his family on a piece of Hitler's personal stationary. Over the decades, McConn, now 87, kept the desk set under his bed and said that he didn't understand the true significance

of it. Then he saw it on television in a newsreel that captured the infamous Munich Pact signing by Germany's Adolf Hitler, England's Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, Italy's fascist leader Benito Mussolini and French Prime Minister Édouard Daladier, and he suddenly realized the history that the set represented. The agreement was a failed attempt to prevent Hitler from his engagement in conquest. A year later he invaded

Poland and World War II started. A retired Houston lawyer, McConn is ready to part with the desk set, which was moved to a bank vault, and said he has no emotional attachment to it. He chose Gottlieb as broker because of his reputation in the business. Gottlieb, of Jewish heritage, whose father is an American WWII Navy veteran, is now an international dealer of German war-related antiques. A graduate of Cornell, he has authored several books about, and given lectures on, militaria. From a very young age he was exposed to his father's wartime stories. “And when I was 6 he gave me a German bayonet, it became a treasured possession,” he said. Raised in Miami, Gottlieb would go to the swapmeets and sell hermit crabs. “Then I'd take the money I made and by a piece of militaria.” When he was 11, a neighbor gave him a rare German dagger and by the time he left high school he was a serious collector. A treasure hunter at heart, even when he was in the Marine Corps, Gottlieb, a second lieutenant, at the time based in Okinawa, took his marines caving. “We explored former Japanese battle sites and I found



a dog-tag. Searching on the internet, which was just starting to emerge, I was able to trace the family and return it,” he said. In 1998, coinciding with the internet explosion, Gottlieb started a website for daggers and began a forum for others interested in militaria. “It launched me from being an obscure private collector to being a personality within this very esoteric field.” Within a couple of years he was able to become a fulltime dealer. Both Gottlieb and McConn hope that the desk set will be purchased by a museum. Estimates up to $1 million are realistic, said Gottlieb, who believes that humanity will be better served if this type of historic artifact is held publicly because of what it represents. “From this desk set comes the famous quote by Chamberlain, 'Peace in our time!' Then 60 to 80 million lives were lost as a result of Hitler's actions. 12 million of them eliminated by a government, as a matter of policy. This is a powerful lens through which we may view the human tragedy that was the Holocaust, and remember it.” To find out more about Craig Gottlieb, his collections and his books, visit

When the occasion calls for ‘grand’ the Addison stands ready to serve BY KELLEY CARLSON Contributor ddison at The Grand Del Mar is a world-class restaurant with a relaxed Southern California influence. “People come here for the experience — it’s not really stuffy dining,” Executive Chef William Bradley said. “Service, wine, food — it’s approachable now.” The award-winning establishment has a decidedly European atmosphere. Guests enter through an iron-and-glass doorway trimmed with gold accents into a foyer with a 20-foot-high pyramid ceiling, and flooring featuring inlaid limestone and aubergine marble. While waiting for a table, patrons may linger in several areas: The Library, with cushioned chairs, a fireplace and books; the patio, which offers sweeping views of The Grand Del Mar’s private 18-hole golf course; or a full-service bar made of a rich wood that is lit by blue micro lights. For the actual dining, guests have several options from which to choose. The main area seats up to 80 people. There are large windows, a limestone fireplace

Guests can view Addison’s 3,600-bottle wine room.

On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at, click ‘On The Menu.’ ■ This week: Addison’s Calvadospoached Apricots imported from Italy, and arches and columns. As an added touch, patrons can peer through the windows of the air-conditioned, 3,600-bottle wine room. The bottles are obtained from vineyards around the world, along with California top vintage cult wines. The entire dining staff is certified as sommeliers and ready to help guests make selections, Bradley said. For special occasions, such as anniversaries and weddings, Addison has a private dining room that seats up to 40 people. There is also a Chef’s Table where Bradley presents each course and explains the back-

ground of the dishes. The Chef’s Table, which holds up to 12 people, is adjacent to the kitchen and main dining room. Bradley recommends that participants in the Chef’s Table announce all food allergies before arrival to ensure a great experience. On the menu for all restaurant guests is contemporary French cuisine that incorporates fresh, local ingredients. Much of the produce comes from Crow’s Pass Farms in Temecula, but some is obtained from Fallbrook and other sites around the region. There are three- and fourcourse prix-fixe menus, along with a Carte Blanche Menu for which Bradley creates “seven courses for the table.” There is also a cheese cart featuring selections from California, Wisconsin, Italy and France. Addison’s signature winter dish (and Bradley’s personal favorite) is Alaskan King Crab with Cured Lemon and Tahitian Vanilla. “We dare to be different,” Bradley said. “We don’t follow trends. We have a strong respect for tradition and genuine hospitality, which is timeless — regardless of the current trends.”

The flooring, including the bar area, features inlaid limestone and aubergine marble.

QUESTIONS continued from page 1 San Diego for this job more than anything else in the world. So, I flew out to San Diego by myself and had five days to find a house and a job. I found both and the rest is history. That was in 1989. 2. What makes this town special to you? I grew up in San Francisco on Union Street and, as a child, I could walk down to the shops and say hello to people that I knew. The village in La Jolla has the same small town feel. The views of the ocean are spectacular. Swimming at the Cove followed by breakfast at The Cottage. It doesn't get any better than that! 3. If you could snap your fingers and have it done, what might you add, subtract, or improve in the area? I would make the four tall buildings disappear that were built before the Coastal Commission was created. They are a blight on our beautiful views. Thank goodness zoning protected us from the developers! 4. Who or what inspires you? I am inspired by medical mysteries and sick children. I have devoted my career to trying to solve the mystery of Kawasaki disease, the most common cause of acquired heart disease in children. Every year we diagnose and treat about 100 new cases of

COMPANY continued from page 1 crew worked the Leather and Laces party hosted by “Girls Next Door” Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt, spotting players like Hall of Fame class of 2011 Marshall Faulk, the Bengals’ Terrell Owens, the Eagles’ speedy receiver DeSean Jackson and Cowboys rookie wideout Dez Bryant. In the Dallas Morning Sun the next day, there was an item about how tight security was at the party. “That was a big compliment,” Johnson said. The security gigs aren’t always easy. Johnson said

Kawasaki disease here in San Diego. We just celebrated the 50th anniversary of Dr. Kawasaki's discovery of the disease and yet the cause remains a mystery. You can visit our website at awasaki to learn more. 5. If you hosted a dinner party for 8, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? I would invite my parents and their parents. My parents died when I was in my 30s and I never took the opportunity to really talk to them about their lives and ask the questions that an adult child wants to know. How amazing it would be to sit there with two generations and to get insights into how I came to be the person that I am. Genetics are powerful! 6. Tell us about what you are currently reading? I am working on a grant to fund my research and I am reading about how a master molecule in the body called “transforming growth factor beta” signals cells to behave as they do. My work is my passion and it's exciting to read about the inner workings of cells. Probably wouldn't be most people's first choice, but I'm enjoying it! 7. What is your most prized possession? I don't really prize possessions. I am aa people person. My family and friends and colleagues all over the world, that's what is important to me.

fun? I have lots of energy so tennis, swimming at the Cove, walking the dog with friends, those are all great outlets. I also love to travel and I speak four languages. I love diving into a new culture and soaking up everything I can about a world different from my own. 9. Please describe your greatest accomplishment. Despite my passion about my work, raising two wonderful children definitely tops the list of “greatest accomplishments.” Outside of my family, I am proud of creating the Kawasaki Disease Research Center at UCSD and creating an environment where researchers and students can bring their creative talents to bear on solving aspects of the Kawasaki disease mystery. 10. What is your motto or philosophy of life? The way you change the world is one person at a time. I spend my life touching other people's lives through healing my patients and, hopefully, inspiring my students. I think one person can make the world a better place, one person at a time.

they can run into challenges, like at one party where the planners didn’t want the metal detectors up because they would clash with the vibe of the party. Johnson also has to deal with large entourages and sometimes rude and entitled players. “Sometimes players try to come off like ‘I’m in the NFL, I’m VIP’ and they can get kind rough with you and treat you like you’re just some security guard,” Johnson said. One of the highlights of the weekend came at the party he worked on Saturday night hosted by Chad Ochocinco. Johnson had the opportunity to meet and chat with Cam

Newton, the Auburn quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner. “He was very humble,” Johnson said. “We talked about his expectations, about getting into the NFL. He was really down to earth.” Johnson’s only downtime during the weekend came during the actual game, when his crew and some family and friends watched the game at the ESPN sponsor party. Johnson will get a few weeks to rest up for his next big events—he will be doing NBA All Star weekend parties in Los Angeles and some parties for the Academy Awards in late February.

To sell your home faster...use these proven strategies: 1 To get the best asking price, pull the “best comps.” 2 Realize your potential buyer is local...78% of the buying

pool either live in Del Mar/Solana Beach/Carmel Valley or in an adjacent town—so market locally. 3 Make sure your home is marketed aggressively and showcased in local media. Strategy #1: Price is the key, so price your home to sell. Since they have the biggest sway in determining your home’s value, you want comps, which determine a price, putting yours in the most attractive light. Select comps as close to your address as possible. But note, there are exceptions. For example, a comp close to you may not be good because it sits higher on the hill, and has phenomenal views, or it’s closer to a main arterial or freeway. But a house similar to yours could be a mile away, and still part of the same market since neighborhoods don’t always have neat boundaries. And homes in developments should be compared against comps from the same development since these homes were built together at the same time, by the same

builder/developer. Remember, a good agent will help you price your home correctly.

Strategy #2: Your buyer (most likely) lives here in Del Mar/ Solana Beach/Carmel Valley or in an adjoining focus your advertising in the local newspaper. According to research by First American Title company here in San Diego, the buyer for your home lives right here in Del Mar/ Solana Beach/Carmel Valley or just a few miles away. 78% of the buying pool live within 5 miles, while 15% come from out of state and 6% from out of the county. The point is, most people moving in Del

Mar/Solana Beach/Carmel Valley are moving to a different street in those areas. It’s a coveted place to live. And when people move here they plant deep roots in the community. The Del Mar Times newspaper is the only paper in town that is delivered by the U.S. Post Office into each and every home in that community. So everybody gets it. And because the content is hyper-local, most everybody reads it. And prospective homebuyers actively search the these papers for homes. Listings show up in this newspaper that don’t appear in other papers. According to the percentages, the most likely buyer for your home is reading the Times/Sun/News this week...and next. If you’re home isn’t shown in the Times/Sun/ News, you’re missing a potential buyer.

Strategy #3: Make sure your

home is marketed aggressively and showcased in local media. In choosing an agent, review their marketing plan for selling your home and be sure it includes advertising in the local paper. If there is more than one paper, pick the one that carries the most real estate ads. While the internet is often a free source of distribution, research by Borrell Associates shows that 66% of home buyers rely on the local newspaper, compared to only 20% using the internet. It’s your agents job to sell your home for the maximum amount. This effort takes a fully developed marketing and sales plan that includes: With a fully developed marketing plan, your agent is prepared to sell your home quickly and for the highest possible price.

Ask your agent if they are using the Del Mar Times/ Solana Beach Sun/Carmel Valley News and sister publications. If not, have your agent call them at 858-756-1403 x112 and ask for Sharon to get your home sold faster.
