Solana Beach firefighters took to the streets again this year to help raise money for burn survivors. The annual Burn Institute Boot Drive, which raises money to fund burn survivor support services such as Camp Beyond the Scars, was held April 6. The Burn Institute is a non-profit agency dedicated to burn prevention and support for burn injury survivors and their families.

She was only 19 years old when she landed in a Michigan prison on a drug charge, 21 when she scaled a barbwire fence to escape. Thirty-three years later, Susan LeFevre’s past came to her doorstep in Carmel Valley where she had created a new life living as Marie Walsh, a wife, mother and secret fugitive. Taken back to prison in 2008, Walsh has been out since April 2009. A new book, “A Tale of Two Lives: The Susan LeFevre Fugitive Story” tells her unbelievable story and the “Fugitive Mom” has again captured the nation’s attention— she was featured on “Oprah” on April 7 and appeared on “The Today Show” on April 8. Walsh once thought the “Fugitive Mom” label was crass but has embraced it now. It’s the way peo-

ple know her and the platform she has been given to tell her story, one that carries a message that the prison system needs to be reformed. Proceeds from her book will go toward re-entry programs for women released from prison. “(Prison) was unbelievably painful and the only way to take care of that pain is to use it for good,” Walsh said. “There needs to be more rehabilitation and education in prison, more than just a façade of it like it is now. It is almost devastating for some women to get out, the transition is very hard if they’re poor or don’t have a family like I did.” Walsh’s story begins in 1974, when she was arrested with two and a half grams of heroin, about $20 worth of drugs. She maintains that she was not guilty of selling SEE FUGITIVE, PAGE 6

Solana Beach Ball benefits two elementary schools The Solana Beach Ball is coming up, an event that helps bring art, science, PE and technology to students at Skyline and Solana Vista Schools. The Solana Beach Foundation for Learning is looking for community support for the schools on their biggest fundraising event of the year. “For little public schools in this little town, it’s a pretty big event for us,” said Hedy Allen-Hydo, Skyline’s foundation site president. “The Beach Ball is more of a big community event, even if your kids don’t go to the two elementary

schools, it’s also supporting our local businesses,” said event chair Scott Billington said. The Solana Beach Ball will be held on Saturday, April 30, at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club. There will be dinner and dancing, and live and silent auctions will feature big ticket items such as a weekend in Mammoth and more priceless items like artwork created by every classroom at the two schools. To get involved with the Solana Beach Ball, visit sbfl.org. Donation forms are available online.

What is a great experience? Cohen’s stint on ‘Jeopardy!’ BY KAREN BILLING Staff Writer Local resident Barry Cohen, a long-time “Jeopardy!� viewer “sofa champion,� appeared on the real TV game show on March 22, finishing second and winning $2,000. Cohen admits answering the questions in your living room without cameras, lights and the studio audience is a lot easier than being on the actual show and competing against “30-something reflexes,� but he still had a great time. “It was terrific,� Cohen said. “A tremendous amount of fun.� The 10-year local resident, originally from Nashville, Tenn., has worked for Kaludis Consulting, a higher education consulting firm headquartered in Washington D.C., for 32 years. For years people told Cohen he should try out for “Jeopardy,� especially his wife Patricia Hall and son David. “They were my boosters, encouraging me to continue going after it,� Cohen said. Cohen has tried out for the show twice, once in 2000 (he did not make it) and the second time in 2009. Potential contestants are given a series of questions, with a new one appearing every nine sec-

pool of eligible contestants for 18 months. A year went by before Cohen was called, traveling to Culver City’s Sony Pictures lot for the taping back in November. “Jeopardy� tapes five shows a

day, two days a week, with tapings beginning at 9:30 a.m. The contestants get very little interaction with host Alex Trebek, save for their anecdotal stories at the first break. The rest of the time Trebek entertains the studio audience and Cohen said he was very personable. Waiting in the audience for his name to be called for a game, Cohen watched as the two-time champion Tom Kunzen won three more games; by lunchtime, Kunzen had become a five-time “Jeopardy� champion with earnings of $133,000. Cohen was called for the fourth game of the day, against Kunzen and Megan Barnes. “I was hoping for the categories of sports or colleges and universities,� Cohen said. “British monarchies would have been one I’d not have relished.� Cohen said doing well on “Jeopardy� comes down to three key factors: luck of the draw on categories; quick reflexes to get control of the board; and hitting well on the Daily Double. Cohen hit the Daily Double early in the first round so he had very little money to wager. The game went by in such a blur that afterward Cohen said he

couldn’t remember a single category or answer except for the Final Jeopardy category, which was “Garments of the World.â€? At that point Cohen was in a “distant thirdâ€? with $11,000. “My only hope was if they bet a lot and got it wrong and I bet a lot and got it right,â€? Cohen said. “I didn’t want to end with a goose egg so I bet all but $2.â€? The clue was: “The custom of Hijab, Arabic for “veilingâ€?, can include this garment, mentioned by Kiplingâ€? and Cohen said he had a total brain freeze, writing “What is‌â€? on his screen. He ended up with those $2. Kunzen bet it all and got it wrong; Barnes correctly guessed “burkaâ€? and won—she went on to become a three-day champion winning $103,000. Those two dollars ended up being the difference between Cohen placing second instead of third, and winning $2,000 instead of $1,000. For now, Cohen will continue to play from his couch but he wouldn’t rule out playing another TV game show — he said he would consider taking a spin on “Wheel of Fortune.â€?

continued from page 1 drugs but was just taken advantage of for her age and naiveté by her co-defendant, a 22-year-old who ended up serving three-and-a-half years for the crime. “I wasn’t a drug dealer but I did use drugs. I was on a wrong path,” said Walsh. In her book, Walsh writes how she later found out the Saginaw, Mich., judges had made a pact that every drug offense would get 10-20 years—it was a kind of “witch hunt,” she said. “I thought it was a misunderstanding,” said Walsh, who was so unaware that she would be doing time that she even had a ski trip planned the weekend of her court date. While she had been promised probation, she ended up in jail instead; an experience she said was horrible and frightening. “I could hear women being raped in their cells when it was quiet at night, even through the iron doors of my cell,” Walsh said, describing how fearful she was that she would be next. “The women were so vulnerable…It was a very incredibly painful experience to go through, I don’t think there’s anything I can say that really conveys that.” After serving about a year of her sentence, Walsh escaped with the help of her grandfather in 1976. She made up a social security number that was just a few numbers off her real one and took her middle name as her first and planned to go far, far away. She said she never imagined that running would be as easy as it was,

thinking she would have to live in a cabin in the woods, but instead found herself in California. “The moment I came to San Diego, I opened my eyes and there was this glittery sky and pastel-colored ocean, “ said Walsh. “I just thought I was home. I had felt out of place in Michigan.” Walsh kept her fugitive past a secret—in the beginning she told one of her boyfriends but he reacted so poorly that she decided she would never tell anyone again. She did not tell her husband Alan Walsh or her three children, but she did say that they later admitted suspecting she had some kind of secret, especially when people from a crime website began contacting her and her family, looking for her. The secret did weigh heavily on Walsh. “I had to just deal with it,” said Walsh, who said she attempted on a few occasions to turn herself in but the authorities she contacted weren’t interested. “Everyone has their cross to bear. I had this thing hanging over me and I couldn’t just continue to feel sorry for myself.” It came to a head in April 2008—she received a phone call that some tree trimmers had clipped one of her trees and wanted her to come outside her home. A tip to the crime website had led the authorities to Carmel Valley and when she stepped outside that morning she saw not a tree trimmer but a man flashing his badge. “He asked ‘Are you Susan LeFevre?’ and I went a little numb, I was cognizant

that sh--, this is it. This has actually happened,” she said. She traveled from San Diego to the Michigan prison with her hands handcuffed at her waist for 24 hours a day for an entire week — she was only released once a day during the journey to use the restroom. She was facing 15 years, to finish her original 10-year sentence, plus additional time for the escape. Walsh’s second time in prison was much worse than the first time. She said the guards had been told to target her and she was the subject of constant harassment and abuse. “I feared for my life several times,” Walsh said. She was locked in one cell, in direct sunlight for days during an intense Michigan heat wave. “No air was coming in, I was sealed in between these concrete walls,” Walsh said. She would wet her clothing to try and keep

cool, causing her skin to become raw. It became so hot that she collapsed, feeling as though she was having a heart attack or stroke. The guards wouldn’t do anything to help, just yell at her and call her names. “It was sadistic,” she said. The guards would write her up for offenses she did not commit, one month she received 11 violations for things like smoking. “I wasn’t yelling or angry, I was doing everything I could to follow the rules,” Walsh said. She was transferred to another prison after complaints about her treatment to the warden and even the governor. But the second prison wasn’t much better as she was placed in cells with extremely violent cellmates, “I think they wanted to put me in with someone who would kill me,” Walsh said. When one cellmate threatened to kill her, Walsh was taken to the segregation

cells, “the dungeon cells” they were called. She was served dirty food and lost her appetite, losing 25 pounds and becoming horrified by her loose skin hanging off her bones. When edible food was slipped into the cell, guards sometimes placed pubic hairs on it so she could not eat it. One November day she was locked outside in the cold and sleet for an hour without a jacket. “I thought I was going to die from the cold, after thinking I was going to die from the cold at the other prison just 20 miles away,” Walsh said. Walsh said she felt awful but she did not cry— “I’m not a crier,” she said. “I didn’t let myself dwell on it. It was too much to deal with.” As many horrible experiences as she had, she also met some very exceptional people. She received letters every day from strangers, as well as her friends in Carmel Valley, who were supportive and “wonderful,” as was her family, including her husband. Her daughter set up a website for people to send messages to her mother. Walsh’s son assured her that “a zillion people adore you, Mom.” In January 2009, the Michigan Parole Board voted to release her and she was released on May 18 of that year. She had begun writing her book in prison but spent another two years working on it, writing for hours on end, filling thousands of pages and finally whittling it down this year. “People keep saying to me that my story is so unusual. But the story that I have is not unusual and that

is what’s tragic. So many of the things that happened to me have happened to others,” said Walsh of the jail system she strongly feels needs to be reformed. Whether it was easier to escape her past or to finally confront it, Walsh isn’t sure. “I just did what I had to do. As awful as it was to hide, I had to look at the good side. I feel that’s what you always have to do in life,” Walsh said. “Before I jumped that fence I was such a weak person. My confidence was so beaten and I had always turned to drugs to deal with things. I realized I didn’t need to use drugs…I had to get self -control. I don’t have much control over anything but I do have control over me and that’s a great thing. The one thing this experience gave me is that I learned I can control myself and my actions.” Find “A Tale of Two Lives: The Susan LeFevre Fugitive Story” at createspace. com or amazon.com.

The mile and one-quarter for 3-year-olds and up will be the richest and most prestigious of 31 “major” — or “advertised”— stakes planned for the summer stand that will see racing conducted once more on a Wednesday through Sunday basis. The 31 stakes will have total purse values of $6,075,000. Additionally, the racing headquarters first opened by entertainment titan Bing Crosby and his Hollywood pals back in 1937 also will stage 11 “overnight” stakes with a value of $935,000, bring the total stakes incentives for the session to $7,010,000. “In light of all that’s going on in our sport right now, I’m delighted we were able to avoid any race cuts for our premier events,” said Del Mar’s executive vice president for racing and racing secretary Tom Robbins. “A few of our race purses were trimmed, but for the most part we held firm. And I’m especially pleased we once again will offer the Pacific Classic with a $1,000,000 purse.” For the complete schedule, visit www.dmtc.com/ racinginfo/stakes.php

Katelyn Hennes (center) with volunteers at the garden.

Girl Scout volunteers her time to build a garden for the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito Katelyn Hennes, a 17-year-old junior at Westview High School, partnered with the Del Mar branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito to build a vegetable and herb garden for her Girl Scout Gold Award Project. “Katelyn’s vision brought a much needed jewel to the outdoor area of Del Mar branch�, said Candace Gerlach, clubhouse manager of the Del Mar branch. “Being in the garden you can feel how much care was put into it. It is warm and inviting and the children will enjoy it for years to come!� The 6x8 garden includes flowers that attract butterflies and humming birds, and an enclosed vegetable and herb garden. Numerous stepping stones were placed about with a sitting bench and colorful planter boxes that the volunteers helped paint. About 30 volunteers came to help Katelyn over the April fool’s weekend to make the garden a reality. “I am extremely proud to have been able to create this garden and teach at the Boys and Girls Club�, said Katelyn Hennes,

Girls Scout and volunteer. “It has been an eye-opening experience and I have learned so much from it. It has been a great pleasure to know that this garden and what I am teaching could lead to a healthier future for all the kids involved.� To prepare for the project, Katelyn talked to many business and groups and asked for help in planning the garden and for donations. Preparation also included gathering and sorting supplies, managing and scheduling the volunteers, making schedules for each specific teaching day with the children, and meeting with the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Dieguito to understand exactly what they wanted to grow in their garden and how to locate it. Katelyn Hennes is a member of troop 8116, and has been officially in Girl Scouts since the Daisies in kindergarten. She plans to teach the same curriculum in the summer at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego in Clairemont.

organizations that are responsible for the well being of the park. Golich will present a short DVD professionally produced almost 10 years ago showing the full extent of the park. He will then talk about the changes taken place in the park since the DVD was produced. There are now almost 40 miles of trails completed of the planned 55 miles of trails with connecting trails. The river park is a great place to walk, hike, bike or ride your horse in the natural beauty of the park. Many parts of the park on the eastern end look more like Northern California than San Diego County. Golich’s association with the river park comes from having served on the river park’s Joint Powers Authority Board for four years while a member of the Solana Beach City Council, He served three years as the president of the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy Board and presently as the chair of the Citizens Advisory Committee for the JPA Board.

Local photographer teams with friend on expeditions to help save threatened great white sharks from extinction BY ARTHUR LIGHTBOURN Contributor He still shoots portraits, but for the past two years, local photographer Mark Frapwell has shot thousands of images of great white sharks, in and out of the water, on scientific “catch, tag and release” expeditions to help collect data that hopefully will help save these threatened marine animals from extinction. The expeditions are currently being aired through the Fischer Productions’ “Shark Men” television series on the National Geographic Channel. The first season of “Shark Men’ premiered on April 10 and will continue on Sunday evenings through June 12. Frapwell, 44, is the expeditions’ still photographer, and his former La Jolla High School classmate, Captain Brett McBride, 43, is the expeditions’ marine captain. Fischer Productions, founded in 2001, is a leading outdoor-oriented television content provider and six-time Emmy Award win-

200 episodes. Most recently, Fischer Productions formed a multivessel expedition unit to conduct scientific ocean research to promote conservation and sustainable fishing practices around the world.

To date, Frapwell has accompanied McBride and the expeditions’ 18-member crew of scientists, deck hands and TV videographers on great white expeditions to waters off Northern California, Southern California, Mexico and Costa Rica to gather data on the breeding, feeding and migratory habits of the great whites. We interviewed Frapwell and McBride in Frapwell’s tiny “Man Cave” stand-alone office at his home which also serves as the site of “Mrs. Frapwell’s Pre-Preschool” for children 2 to 5 years old. “The biggest thing about these expeditions is to save the ocean,” Frapwell said. “And the sharks are a very, very important part of the ocean. If the sharks disappear, then the ocean will go to ruin. We want our children’s children to be able to see this wonderful, alive ocean.” Commenting on his upclose encounters with the GWS, Frapwell said, “It is the most exhilarating and

Medical Center Library closure first casualty of UCSD Libraries budget cuts By Dave Schwab STAFF WRITER UC San Diego Libraries last week took the first hit from a budget scenario which has campus officials planning for a 12 percent cut. On April 1, the Medical Center Library in Hillcrest closed its doors. Budget planners have outlined a worst-case scenario for trimming $3 million in FY 2011-12 — on top of nearly $5 million in cuts since 2008-09 — which consolidates six library buildings and staffs into two. Also planned are further trims in collections, canceling journal subscriptions and online databases, and reducing book expenditures. Hoping for the best and preparing for the worst, the proposed cuts were outlined recently in a budget report by Brian E.C. Schottlaender, the Audrey Geisel University librarian, in response to the governor’s recent proposed $500 million cut to the University of California’s budget for next year. At the outset, Schottlaender’s budget report objects to the current formula used to allocate campus budget reductions claiming it doesn’t factor in the “size of the libraries’ budget versus the campus’s budget” and doesn’t “protect the academic core.” “If the libraries are not central to the academic core, what is?” Schottlaender wrote in his report, which notes that the university’s libraries have sustained permanent budget cuts of almost $5 million — 16 percent of libraries core base budget — since 2008-09. In a recent interview, Schottlaender said he was originally asked to prepare a report detailing a $6 million — 25 percent — budget reduction plan. “Instead, I prepared a plan for a $3 million — 12 percent — reduction,” he said. The 12 percent libraries budget reduction plan does a lot of “compacting.” Said Schottlaender: “It would close several libraries and accumulate their functions and collections.” UCSD spokeswoman Delores Davies said the library buildings that would be closed include libraries at UCSD Medical Center, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the Center for Library and Instructional Computing Services. The SIO Library is the only science-focused library facing closure, she added.

Davies noted the Science & Engineering Library, in the Geisel Library building — which houses four libraries — would be consolidated in the Biomedical Library. Director Peter Brueggeman talked about the impact of the Scripps Institution library’s closure on the campus community. “The Scripps Institution of Oceanography Library collection is the largest collection in the world focused on marine science (based on collection size, journals available, budget, etc.),” he said. “Our users both on and off campus have told us that they value timely access to our collection to support their re- Photo of Geisel Library search.” He said users will have to wait longer for “books and journal back runs that aren’t available online, as well as to current runs of overseas journals in marine sciences that are not available online.” In addition, access to the collection at the Geisel Library or through delivery requests from an off-campus storage facility would not be as timely as it is currently at SIO. “Items will take longer for campus users to obtain, which may impact the quality of research and education,” he said adding the space also will be lost as a study and communal space for students. A petition in opposition to the proposed SIO library closure, signed by more than 700 members of the SIO and UC communities, as well as by scientists from organizations such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), has been submitted to the university. Schottlaender said, due to the richness of the collection, that the Scripps Library has long been a “net lender” for in-

terlibrary loans, meaning that more books and publications come out of the Scripps Library collection than Scripps researchers request from other libraries for their own research and education needs. “Interlibrary loan from the Scripps Library collection is centralized, and would continue after closure,” Schottlaender. “However, it is possible that the UCSD Libraries will need to restrict lending or charge fees for loans outside the UC libraries because of budget cuts.” Schottlaender has presented his budget-cutting plan to all campus deans, Academic Affairs’ Department Chairs, the college provosts, the Academic Senate leadership and the presidents of the Associated and the Graduate Student Association as well as Libraries staff to “pave the way” for serious discussions needed to “downsize and rethink what we do and how we do it.” Where the plan goes from here is temporarily on hold. “We’re all waiting for the May revise on the state budget” as well as for what action the Legislature takes if any, Schottlaender said. “The library head is working with university stakeholder groups to “gather what their concerns are should these closures come to pass.”

Education Matters: Bullying and the middle school years: The case for K-8 By Marsha Sutton All the recent media coverage on bullying reminded me of several lectures I attended a few years ago by a UCLA psychology professor whose area of expertise is young adolescent peer relationships and school adjustment. Her lectures focused on bullying, peer group conformity among young teens, and middle school. Jaana Juvonen, chair of UCLA’s developmental psychology program, addressed bullying as it relates to the Marsha Sutton middle school years, and she offered some interesting, research-based evidence that isolating young adolescents in separate middle school facilities may be a flawed practice. Juvonen’s research, as explained on her Web site, has examined “the development of some questionable peer group norms and values that seem to surface at the time when students transfer to middle school.” Juvonen also served as adjunct behavioral scientist at RAND Corporation in 2004 where she worked with colleagues to produce a book titled “Focus on the Wonder Years: Challenges Facing the American Middle School.” According to the book’s summary, the middle school years represent a critical time for young teens who “undergo multiple physical, social-emotional and intellectual changes that shape who they are and how they function as adults. The schools young teens attend play a critical role in shaping these futures.” The summary states that “middle schools have been called the Bermuda Triangle of education and have been blamed for increases in behavior problems, teen alienation, disengagement from school, and low achievement.” Some findings from Juvonen and RAND include: The concept of an intermediate school between elementary and high school often [historically] had more to do with labor market needs, the capacity of school buildings, or societal and demographic pressures, than with educational or developmental considerations. Research suggests that the onset of puberty is an especially poor reason for beginning a new phase of schooling. Young teens do better in K-8 schools than in schools with configurations that require a transition to an intermediary school. School climate and bullying findings include: National school safety statistics suggest that physical conflict is especially problematic in middle schools, and student concerns about safety predict emotional distress that can compromise academic performance. Comparisons [with other middle-school-age students internationally] show that U.S. students view the climate of their schools and the peer culture more negatively than do students in other countries, making conditions for learning sub-optimal. U.S. educators should learn how other countries successfully promote student well-being and foster positive school climates in a manner that supports academic achievement in schools that serve young teens. Academic performance and teacher preparedness decline in middle schools: International comparison studies show that the relative performance of U.S. students in mathematics and science declines from elementary school to middle school. Only about one-quarter of middle school teachers are certified to teach at the middle grades; the majority of the rest are certified to teach at the elementary level. Middle school teachers are likely to lack both the subject matter expertise and formal training on the development of young adolescents. Parental involvement and student connectedness diminish in the middle school years: Middle schools contribute to the decline in parental involvement by offering fewer activities and providing less support to parents than elementary schools do. Middle school parents are often discouraged from direct involvement. A more disengaged, hands-off approach, and the message that parents need to begin to “let go��� of their children during these transitional years, are communicated. Having students move from classroom to classroom, teacher to teacher, with no safety net of the elementary years’ “homeroom” teacher, compounds the problem. Onset of puberty America’s middle schools generally consist of grades six, seven and eight. These are the “middle years” – those grades between elementary school and high school, when kids are 11, 12 and 13 years old. These years are a time when adolescents experience some of the most dramatic physical changes in their

lives. And with the onset of puberty can come social, emotional and psychological turmoil. According to the RAND study, alternatives to the separate 6-8 or 7-8 middle school should be considered, to reduce multiple transitions from school to school. This is particularly important at a time in students’ lives when traumatic adjustments can negatively affect healthy physical and emotional development. Juvonen, in her lecture several years ago, argued that society pulls kids out of a safe, comfortable environment – elementary school – and throws them into a separate facility we call middle school, just at a time when they most need to remain in protective, familiar surroundings. “Right around the time that most kids are transferring to middle school, everything starts to happen,” she said in an article in TIME magazine on the RAND report. This is a fragile time for children, and a strong case can be made that removing them from their comfort zone and putting them in a “holding tank” where they are essentially in limbo between elementary school and high school can impede developmental and academic progress and is exactly the wrong thing to do. The elementary school provides grounding for kids and offers continuity and familiarity – just the type of environment critical for children going through major changes in their lives. It’s not just the physical surroundings that provide comfort at a time of upheaval. The elementary school’s homeroom teacher, absent in most middle schools, does more than teach. He or she is the primary contact, advisor, counselor, protector, confidante, and, hopefully, mentor and role model – someone the student can trust and confide in. Without all this to lean on, inappropriate sexual behavior, drug and alcohol abuse, and bullying – particularly cyber-bullying – can escalate in the middle school years. Witnesses, Juvonen says, rarely intervene but can thwart bullying if schools provide appropriate training and tools. But school officials are at an immediate disadvantage when safe surroundings are removed and kids are thrown together in a new

Local residents and businesses support Earth Month shred event Every year millions of people become victims of identity theft. Experts say one way of the best ways to protect yourself is to shred sensitive documents. That’s what Del Mar residents did on April 1 at a free event held at Del Mar City Hall where 3,240 lbs. of personal documents were collected, shredded and recycled. The event was sponsored by Coast Waste Management and the City of Del Mar to celebrate the beginning of Earth Month. “I appreciate Waste Management providing this service to the Del Mar community,” said Terry Sinnott, Del Mar city councilmember. It was a convenient way to do a little spring cleaning and to see your papers were destroyed in a secure manner.” After documents were emptied into the shredding truck, participants had the opportunity to watch as their materials were shredded on a television monitor

Del Mar residents recently participated in a “shred” event. visible from the side of the truck. “We are continually looking for ways to support Del Mar’s green goals,” said Lori Somers, community and municipal relations representative for Coast Waste Management. “Offering community shredding events to our municipalities in San Diego County is a new service we have started and we were pleased to be able to bring this program to Del Mar.” To learn more information about Waste Management visit http://northcounty.wm.com or www.thinkgreen.com.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS

Flower Hill Promenade provides unique dining, shopping choices BY MARLENA CHAVIRA-MEDFORD STAFF WRITER Originally developed by the Fletcher family in the mid-70s, Flower Hill Promenade continues to be a top destination for premiere dining and shopping. Its dozens of trendy boutiques, galleries, specialty shops and eateries have earned it a steady following for nearly 35 years, although most recently, the new Farmers’ Market has begun to draw even more folks. Every Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., foodies flock to the Promenade for unique finds, such as orange and whiskey marmalade, or avocado-honey. There is also locally-made pastas, pastries and breads — and, of course, plenty of fresh flowers, nuts, meats, herbs, fruit and veggies from nearby farms and ranches. Patrons can also shop while enjoying live music, which typically gets started by around 10 a.m. A portion of every Farmers’ Market also benefits the Challenged Athletes Foundation, an organization that helps those with physical disabilities across the nation pursue physical activity. Also, on April 30, students from the Carmel Valley Middle School Kids Korps chapter will be holding a fundraising event for the people of Japan at the Farmers’ Market. The Farmers’ Market isn’t the only new addition to Flower Hill Promenade. A few new tenants recently joined the lineup, including: Bon Bon’s Girly Boutique, which offers creative costume jewelry, such as conversation-piece pendants, bracelets, rings, charms, and lockets; the Gallery of Chinese Cultural Arts, which features high-end collectibles; and Mas Boutique, which carries unique clothing, handbags, hats, shoes, and accessories. This summer, Coconut Lime will begin selling contemporary patio furniture and swimwear in the space formerly occupied by Dig Home & Garden.

Mike Stevens fights lung cancer with a battle plan for all At age 43, local resident Mike Stevens was a healthy non-smoker with a wife and two children. He never thought he’d have lung cancer. When he was diagnosed in 2005, Stevens had owned La Jolla Photo & Imaging for 23 years. He sold the business to undergo chemo treatments and spend his time raising public awareness and research funds to fight lung cancer. Six years later, after a dozen rounds of chemotherapy, Stevens is one of Mike Stevens the 3 to 5 percent of people who survive stage IV lung cancer. In 2009, Stevens and three other San Diego lung cancer survivors started the San Diego Breath of Hope Cancer Walk. This year Stevens will lead the third annual walk with co-chair Jane Marks. They invite other residents to join the walk at 9 a.m. Sunday, May 1 at Cancer Survivors Park on Harbor Island. Preregistration at

sandiegobreathofhope.org is $30; onsite $35; kids $15. Participants will receive a T-shirt and ticket to the June 4 Padres Game. The walk is in association with the Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA), a national nonprofit. What makes this area special to you? I always loved the natural beauty of San Diego. Having graduated from high school in the L.A. area, it was great to live in a place with no traffic and natural beauty. The days of no traffic are long gone. When I was in the photo business, I got to see many historical pictures of San Diego. I have always enjoyed learning about that history. One of my favorite times was whenever Ellen Revelle would come into my shop and tell me stories of times gone by. It was great to hear about the history from someone who was there. If you could snap your fingers and have it done, what might you improve in the area? It would be great to stop the bickering about issues that mean so little in the overall picture. Sometimes I have to laugh at the energy that is put into these issues when that same energy and money could be used to improve people’s lives and help those in need. Who or what inspires you? I have been battling stage IV lung cancer for almost six years now. It is a disease for which most people don’t survive the first year. I often ask why I’m still here. Many friends have told me that I have a

purpose. The day after I was diagnosed, a survivor (who I did not know all that well) sat down with my wife and I and explained what to expect and what questions we should be asking the doctor. For two people scared to death, these were the first positive words we could focus on. This person’s actions have inspired me to pay it forward to as many people as I can. Probably because of that one kind person, I became a cancer advocate and the California chair for the Lung Cancer Alliance. The people I meet and help are truly the most amazing people in the world. No matter how bad I might feel or how bad I think I have it, it could be worse. I’m blessed that I have not had to endure what some people have. Somehow cancer patients get though each day, often with a smile. Anyone and everyone battling cancer inspires me. The stories of physical, emotional and financial suffering are heartbreaking, yet everyone I’ve met finds a way to keep moving forward. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? I have a habit of talking about lung cancer and trying to educate as many people as possible when I am in social situations. Everyone thinks it is a smokers’ disease, and “smokers did it to themselves,” so people somehow deserve their lung cancer. I would want to sit down with the editors-in-chief of the Wall Street

Journal, The New York Times and The Washington Post, and from the broadcast side, the heads of ABC, CBS and NBC to set the story straight. Lastly, I would want to invite President Obama. It would be interesting to explain health care to him from a different perspective. At this dinner, I would dispel the myths and present the facts about lung cancer. Facts like 2/3 of those who get the disease don’t currently smoke; that 1 out of 3 people dying of cancer, die of lung cancer; and that lung cancer (not breast cancer) is the No. 1 cancer killer of women, killing twice as many women each year as breast cancer. I would also like them to understand the politics behind cancer research … how lung cancer only receives about 1/20th of the dollars per death that breast cancer receives. What is your most-prized possession? My life, my family and my friends who have supported me and help me stay on this side of the dirt. What do you do for fun? I love the outdoors. There are many things that I cannot do anymore since I lost part of a lung — scuba diving being just one of those. Steep hikes are another. I enjoy hunting and fishing. I try to explain to people that it is all about the experience of being out there, about the amazing things you see. I use to fish offshore a lot and thought it was so sad looking back at the shore at the millions of San Diegans who were so close, yet nev-

er saw their city from the water. I have watched whales just yards away from me rise up and grab a mouthful of krill. I have had bobcats, turkeys and deer walk just feet away from me and never know that I am there. Too many of us go through life and miss the simple wonders that are all around us. Describe your greatest accomplishment. I enjoyed my job at La Jolla Photo & Imaging, but no job is as rewarding as what I do now — helping people who are truly in need. It’s great being able to meet with someone who feels helpless and give him or her hope by encouraging him or her with my story of survival. If I can do this and then they later call me up and tell me that I have inspired them to live, there is no better reward. I feel that is the purpose of why I must still be here. What is your philosophy of life? Lung cancer is both the worst and best thing that has ever happened to me. I try to explain to others that most people really don’t enjoy life the way they should. It’s sad that it often takes a life-threatening disease to wake a person up to what is around them. I know that lung cancer will probably take me one day. That’s OK if I can have as much fun as possible between now and then. It is also great that my wife and many of my friends understand this and encourage me.

Mar Homeowners Association on a regular basis for several months to find solutions that addressed our concerns. We believe the revitalization of Flower Hill Promenade will improve the surrounding community by giving a facelift to existing exteriors and creating pedestrian connections between the mall and our community. We feel that Flower Hill Promenade is long overdue for these kinds of changes. The project will also

bring a Whole Foods market and plazas for visitors to gather and socialize. We feel Whole Foods is a very positive addition not only by itself but also because other quality businesses will be attracted to the center. We feel the completed project will be a community amenity that will not only result in improved property values for surrounding residential property owners but also potential new sales tax revenues that will benefit our governments.

This project has already received approval at every level of the entitlement process. We sincerely hope the members of the City Council will follow the recommendations of the decision makers who preceded them by approving the new Flower Hill Promenade when it comes before them this month.

Ben Gotfredson there’s at least a minute chance of you getting in and enrolling in the fall. So when that letter comes telling you where you won’t be in six months your life plan takes a forced u-turn. You can toss out any plans you had involving the University of ... and move on. But there is something you can take away from a rejection letter. If nothing else it helps you to decide where you’ll end up next year. Like when you are looking through your clothes deciding which ones to send to Goodwill, sometimes you can’t give away that shirt you haven’t worn in three years on your own, so you need a guiding hand to go in there and tell you what to give away. So if nothing else, that college is helping you narrow down your college list. The wait-list is desper-

ation. The parking lot is full but there’s a slight chance someone’s going to get in their car and move elsewhere, in which case you and the fellow wait-listers will not hesitate to swoop in and replace their tuition fees. The variability in a waitlist is a killer. One year they’ll enroll 80 percent of the list, the very next year that percentage is cut down to 35 percent. Your fate rests in those who are already accepted, and if they decide to enroll in that college. So while the wait to hear about your college application is over, the stress is not. What I recommend is for every senior to realize that it is not the college that makes the student, but rather the student that makes the college. If your concern is the social life, let it not be, because every college can party. If your concern is academics, it shouldn’t be, because a professor is a professor, and those that teach at MIT don’t have an extra brain, just a few more years in the field. Quality teachers could be hiding at any college in the United States. Ben Gotfredson is a senior at Cathedral Catholic High School.

Kehoe’s transit first bill passes committee Sen. Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego) announced recently that her legislation requiring earlier transit options in the state’s coastal zones when major highway improvements are proposed, passed the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee by a vote of 5-3. The measure will next be considered by the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee on May 3, 2011. “Californians deserve a viable transit option before expanding our freeways in the endless struggle to accommodate more vehicles,” said Kehoe. “This legislation is about a multimodal approach to transit projects - not freeways first and not freeways only.” Under SB 468, impacts to local streets that carry increased traffic from expanded freeways would have to be analyzed and mitigated. The legislation would apply statewide in the coastal zone and locally would affect the proposed 27-mile Interstate 5 expansion project from La Jolla to Oceanside, which involves four scenarios costing as much as $4.4 billion with construction phased over forty years. The bill emphasizes the importance of protecting the unique natural resources and wetland lagoons in the coastal zone when major transportation construction is proposed. — Submitted by Kehoe’s office

The nuclear experiment In her March 31 letter to the Solana Beach Sun, Shirley Michael lists just a few of the tragedies that could have been avoided, if only the experts we rely on hadn’t underestimated or ignored just how wrong things could go. From unforeseen future effects (DDT), to unexpected catastrophes (“safe” levies suddenly breached), the lesson is clear: sometimes the experts turn out to be wrong. Over time, the repercussions from this kind of shortsightedness have ranged from mild to devastating. This is why it is sheer folly to ac-

cept the assurances of any experts that the benefits of nuclear reactors and stored radioactive waste at San Onofre and Diablo Canyon outweigh the risks. History teaches us it’s the potential for the next unexpected disaster, the one that is thus far unimaginable, that we are foolish to so easily dismiss, especially when it comes to nuclear accidents. If the experts turn out to be wrong in this case, the repercussions for California are beyond compare. Do we really want to be the ones to find out what the next unforeseen nuclear ac-

cident will be, first hand? In hindsight, which would the families affected by cancers and death following nuclear accidents like Chernobyl, Three Mile Island and Fukushima choose — a nuclear accident, or enforced conservation and rolling blackouts? They don’t have the luxury of that choice, but we do. This is the time for the public to say “No!” to nuclear reactors and stored spent fuel rods in active fault zones, while we still can.

BULLYING continued from page 18 school with minimal protective adult oversight. After years of data collection and analysis, Juvonen authored a paper several years ago titled “Bullying and School Violence,” in which she noted the following: Bullying often entails abuse of psychological strength and relies on namecalling, exclusion, threats and/or spreading of rumors. Compared to other grade levels, middle school students report the highest rates of bullying. Victims of repeated bullying exhibit feelings of depression and either withdrawn or aggressive behavior. Bullied youth are more likely to carry a weapon to school. Children who bully in childhood are at risk of becoming violent offenders. Almost two-thirds of public secondary school students think a shooting could take place in their school. Socially withdrawn and passive children are at risk of getting bullied and of becoming even more withdrawn after repeated experiences of bullying. Analyses of daily incidents of bullying in middle school show that social anxiety is increased when student bystanders see someone else being bullied. A caring climate in schools – in which students belong, feel respected and listened to, and where teachers help mediate hostile incidents – can buffer safety concerns and ease distress of the entire student body. A local K-8 model Locally, San Dieguito Union High School District’s middle schools serve students in seventh and eighth grades. But at schools with only two grades, feelings of disconnectedness are often exacerbated. Neither children nor

April 14, 2011 parents are given time to make deeper connections to the school and the staff, school spirit is difficult to generate, and teachers don’t have enough time to get to know the students. And just as these preteens are uprooted from their familiar school environment at a time when they most need to stay connected to familiar adults and surroundings, a single primary teacher or adult in the system to whom they can approach for help has been removed. Making matters worse is that parents begin to withdraw from direct involvement in their children’s schooling. In the Rancho Santa Fe School District, however, a different model has been in use for decades. All on one campus, RSF serves 800 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Before 1968, the school was a K-6. But in 1968, the community approved construction bonds and authorized the return of seventhand eighth-grade students from Earl Warren Middle School (then called a junior high school) in Solana Beach. The school expansion was complete in 1971, when the district officially became a K-8. Former RSF school superintendent R. Roger Rowe, who came to the school district in 1958 and retired in 2001, said the decision to pull the community’s seventh- and eighth-grade students back from SDUHSD’s Earl Warren was mostly for financial reasons. “We had 25 percent at that time of the assessed valuation of the San Dieguito Union High School District, but we had 5 percent of the youngsters,” said Rowe, adding that many RSF students were attending private schools for seventh and eighth grades instead of Earl Warren. “So we looked around and thought, gosh, we don’t have many people over there,” he said. “And yet

we’re paying a lot to educate them.” He brought his case to the community, “and the community voted big-time for the youngsters to come back.” Rowe bases his belief that a K-8 is better for kids on personal observations. He agrees with those who say children this age should remain with a primary classroom teacher for most of their day. Going from teacher to teacher during the day “is not always a beneficial thing,” he said. He said having K-8 students intermingle during the day “was a real plus,” being a small community “didn’t hurt,” and having grades 7 and 8 in town saved families from driving long distances to either Earl Warren or private schools. “It worked out quite well for us,” Rowe said. Role models for younger students Current RSF superintendent Lindy Delaney said, “The K-8 setting … tends to enable the seventh- and eighth-graders to stay a little bit younger in some ways.” She said the middle school students are asked to be role models for younger children, which “helps them realize that they have a bigger place in the world and in our school community.” Delaney said she often hears demand for a K-8 from incoming parents. “When people come and look at this school, they want a K-8,” she said. “They are seeking that out, because I think they realize that it is more of a comprehensive education without disruption.” When students enter RSF’s middle school grades, teachers already know them and “they’re part of the school community,” she said. “They see them come up through the ranks or they had a sibling,” she said. “So there’s a continuity and a consistency.” “Also, we know the families and we know the parents. We know that dynamic

which makes for less transition. And I think that only helps students in their environment to be more successful.” Delaney, who began at Rancho Santa Fe as a middle school teacher 26 years ago, said the school is not immune to bullying. “But because we have a tighter knit community, we might hear about more of it and be asked to intervene [earlier],” she said. “Whenever we get word, we address it and we deal with it severely. We want students to realize that they’re part of a community and that’s not how we treat our community.” Delaney said there is collaboration, interaction on activities and buddy programs among the students in different grades. “We’ve tried to implement more of that from … the middle school to the lower grades this year, with more to come,” she said. Both Delaney and Rowe said they believe students feel more connected in a K-8 campus, which they say provides numerous advantages over a middle school facility that’s removed from a K-5 or a K-6 setting. “We have what I think is an ideal community feeling within our school,” Delaney said. Juvonen’s work, as well as observations over decades from Rancho Santa Fe, offers convincing evidence that a K-8 model can provide developmental support for adolescents at exactly the time in their lives when they need it most. And that supportive environment translates into higher self-esteem, stronger academic performance and kinder young citizens. Marsha Sutton can be reached at: SuttComm@san.rr.com.

Week in Sports BY GIDEON RUBIN Baseball: Santa Fe Christian extended its winning streak to eight games in dramatic fashion, as the Eagles rallied from a threerun deficit in their last at-bat in a 5-4 nonleague win against Mater Dei on April 8 that went eight innings. The win followed a 4-2 victory over Canyon Crest Academy on April 4. The Eagles trailed 4-1 going into the bottom of the seventh, when they scored three runs to send the game into extra innings. Barrett Floyd led the Eagles offensively, going 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI. Josh Estill, Graham Gomez and Jackson Balla each contributed two hits, and Bobby Zarubin homered. Zarubin struck out six batters in three shutout innings of relief for the win. Estill had two hits including a triple and two RBI to lead the Eagles in the CCA game. Nolan Gannon struck out 14 batters and allowed no walks in six innings of two-hit ball in which he allowed one unearned run. The Eagles improved their overall record for the season to 9-3. ***** Reliable pitching helped Cathedral Catholic win 9 of its first 11 nonleague games to start the season. The Dons pitching seems to have only gotten better after recording shutouts in their first two Eastern League games against La Jolla. The Dons beat La Jolla 7-0 on April 5 and then 6-0 two days later. Daniel Camarena struck out 14 batters and allowed no walks in a complete game one-hitter to lead the Dons in the first game. In the second game, Steven Gonsalves tossed a complete game three-hitter. He struck out 11 batters and allowed three walks. Brandon Nelos and Matt Boermeester each had two hits to lead the Dons offensively in the first game. Jesse Kay was 2-for-2 with two doubles and Tommy Valles homered and drove in two runs to lead the Dons in the second game. Dons pitchers have shut-out five of their last six opponents, and have allowed just 11runs over their last 11 games. The Dons improved their overall record for the season to 11-2. After winning 11 of its first 12 games to start the season, Torrey Pines has cooled off, as the Falcons were swept

CCA Swim and Dive Team on winning streak Canyon Crest Academy’s Swim and Dive Team won their last two meets. The first was on March 25 at Escondido High School, and the second was on April 1 at Del Norte High School. During the Escondido meet, Annabel Tomes broke the CCA school record in the 500 Free with a time of 5:09.19. At the Del Norte meet, a host of personal records for the 2011 season were set. Among them, Tiffany Chau, Alex Chen, Nate Rudolph, Eric Schade, and Katie Twyman in the 200 IM; Robert Burklund, Tanner Lack, Mac Lerum, and Josh Trissel in the 50 Free; Casey Crocamo and Dillon Patel in the 100 Free; Caitlin McCallum, Dion Mohager, and Derek Yen in the 200 Free; Eric Arnett, Charlie Doherty, and Eric Schade in the 500 Free; Tiffany Chau, Charlie Doherty, and Kevin Li in the 100 Fly; Alex Chen, Carly Rasmussen, Naomi Stapleton, and Josh Trissel in the 100 Breast; and Kyle Grozen in the 100 Back. In addition to all the individual personal bests smashed by CCA athletes during the Del Norte meet, even more personal records were established during relay competition. Among the record-setting teams were Jerry Guess, Kyle Grozen, Eric Schade, and Josh Trissel in the Boys Varsity 200 Medley Relay; Charlie Doherty, Tanner Lack, Mac Lerum, and Nicholas McGhee in the Boys Junior Varsity 200 Medley Relay; Matthew Briscoe, Taylor Dean, Kevin Li, and Josh Trissel in the Boys Varsity 200 Free Relay; and Casey Crocamo, Charlie Doherty, Mattias Henning, and Dion Mohager

Also notable in CCA Swim and Dive Team news is the distribution of weekly awards to student-athletes by head coach Nico Kintz in recognition of outstanding performance at both practice and meets. Since the season began late February, recipients have included Carly Rasmussen and Josh Trissel for the week of February 28; Tiffany Chau and Kevin Li for the week of March 7; Matthew Briscoe, Alex Chen, Taylor Patterson, and Ariel Vacheron (dive) for the week of March 14; and Caiti McCallum, Charlie Doherty (JV), and David Twyman for the week of March 21

ons didn’t get much time to celebrate, losing to Escondido Charter 15-0 the next day. Ricky Pamensky led the Lions offensively in the Calvin Christian game, going 3-for-3 with a double and two RBI, and Jonathan LaZare had two hits including a triple and drove in four runs. The Lions fell to 1-1 in league and 6-3 overall for the season. Softball: Torrey Pines overcame a two-run deficit in its last at-bat as the Falcons opened Palomar League play with a dramatic 5-4 victory over Ramona on April 7. Mary Lee led the Falcons offensively, going 2-for-2 with a double and two runs scored, and Emma Wong and Zeyna Gilliam each contributed two hits. The Falcons improved their overall record for the season to 16-4-1. ***** Canyon Crest Academy defeated Mountain Empire 4-0 in a Valley League opener for both teams on April 6. Brittney Meredith and Ann Narukawa combined on a five-hit shutout to lead the Ravens. Meredith, who started and got the win, struck out four batters and allowed two hits and no walks in four innings. Narukawa struck out four batters and allowed three hits and one walk in three innings. Alison Delnegro and Natalie Toothacre each had one hit and one RBI to lead the Ravens offensively. The Ravens improved their overall record for the season to 4-7. ***** Cathedral Catholic trounced Our Lady of the Peace 18-1 in a nonleague game on April 4 mercy-ruled after five innings. Courtney Rivera and Jenna Shine combined on a nohitter to lead the Dons. Rivera, who started, struck out five batters and allowed no walks in four innings, but she hit a batter in the first who eventually came around to score on an error for an unearned run. Shine struck out the side in the fifth. Riley Price had four hits including a triple and a homer and drove in four runs and Beth Smetana had three hits including two doubles and four RBI to lead the Dons offensively. Milan Botte had three hits including a home run, and Jazlyn Hallare and Dominique Madruga each added two hits.

North Coast Aquatics swimmers shine in competition North Coast Aquatics recently ended their short-course season (and started their long- course season) with some notable swims and records being set. The Presidents Day Senior Classic was a four-day meet. NCA dominated that meet with their senior team tallying 1,821 points, 1,200 points over the next local team. The women 400 freestyle relay team of Carlsbad residents Kendyl Stewart and Monica Dornick, La Jolla resident Herendira Alanis and Carmel Valley resident Margaret Guo set a new meet record with a time of 3:30.05. Herendira Alanis was the Women’s High point winner. Eric Hedlin of University City set a new meet record in the mile (1650) by over 10 seconds with a time of 15:81.31. This was immediately following his 200 butterfly swim. Steven Abrahamson, 10, of Olivenhein won the “High Point” award for the 10/U at the Short Course Junior Olympics. His older teammate, Sean Gartland of Carlsbad, tied with Bobby Guerra of Fallbrook for High Point for the 13-14-year-old boys. Carmel Valley resident and TPHS sophomore Kelsey Kafka just returned from the Grand Prix in Indianapolis. She and three other teammates (Herendira Alanis, Monica Dornick and Kendyl Stewart) competed with the likes of Michael Phelps and Katie Hoff. All NCA women had second swims in the evening. North Coast Aquatics is the only USA Swimming Gold Medal team in San Diego. For more information on NCA, please call 760-720-1494.

FRAPWELL continued from page 10

relatively rare, while humans kill an estimated 100 million sharks, legally and illegally, each year, threatening the survival of the species. Sharks are particularly vulnerable to overfishing because they grow and mature slowly and have a small number of young.

Frapwell was born in Normal, Illinois. He was the youngest in a family of three brothers. The family moved to La Jolla when Frapwell was six months old. His father, who passed away two years ago, was a State Farm Insurance agent. “I’ve been taking photographs since I was about 10 years old,” Frapwell said. “My dad made a darkroom for us when we were little kids and we used to go out

and play ‘Army’ in the canyon and everybody would have their Red Ryder BB guns and I would have the camera [a Brownie]. And I’d take the pictures and go back to the darkroom and develop them.” After high school, Frapwell studied business briefly at Colorado State. “My brother, David, and I opened a portrait studio/lab in Carmel Valley in 1989. I did that until 1996,

Bumper To Bumper Q. Bill: I was under the impression that the automobile manufacturer had to keep making parts for cars and trucks for up to 10 years. The reason I am questioning that fact is because I am having problems getting parts for my car. The parts departDave Stall ment just tells me the part has been discontinued. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do? I love my car and it is paid for, gets decent mileage and the insurance is cheap. I tried going to the aftermarket parts houses and they do carry some parts, but the trim items and the like are not available. Any ideas? A. Dave: I know your pain. I drive a 1987 vintage car and you are right, parts are hard to come by — especially trim parts. Yes, the manufacturer is mandated to supply their consumer parts up to 10 years, but if the demand for a particular part is not met then they just discontinue the part. One thing you can do is have the parts department do a nationwide search for your particular part. You may end up paying a bundle for freight, but that is just one suggestion. You can also do as I do and buy parts cars that either have bad engines or transmissions and if space is allowed, store the car until parts are needed. Another suggestion is the wrecking yard industry. They also can search for parts thanks to the computer age. Last but not least is the car collector industry. It seems just about every car is becoming a collectable, so check Hemming Motor News at your local news stand or Google your car for parts. Q. Al: Have you heard of an oil filter system that uses a roll of toilet paper to filter out the dirt from your motor oil? I found a complete system at a garage sale - still in the box - and

!   

was wondering if I could install it in my car? A. Dave: Yes I am well aware of that device, but my suggestion is to keep it on a shelf or put it on ebay and make some money — it is worth more as a collectible. I wouldn’t put it on my car when it was new let alone on today’s cars! The filtration system in today’s oil filters is far superior to a roll of toilet paper. If anything got past the filter or if the filter broke down and filled your engine with bits and pieces of toilet paper, you have no warranty recourse. However, the memorabilia community would love to get their hands on it, especially if it is still in its original box. Q. Lance: I have been thinking of parking my grandfather’s old Buick. He left it to me to drive, but due to gas prices I would like to park it and maybe restore it at a later date. What should I do with the car before parking? It runs right now and has new tires. Do I have to do anything with the registration? It is a 1957 Buick convertible with 65,445 miles on it and my grandfather was the original owner. Love your column — keep up the good work! A. Dave: As far as registration goes, you will want to “non-op” the car with the Department of Motor Vehicles, which means you will pay a fee when the registration is due. Just mark the non-op box, pay the fees and park the vehicle off of city and county streets. I would put the car into a garage with fresh gas in the tank (with an additive for storing gas) and make sure it has fresh oil and that the tires are pumped up — better yet put the car on jack stands. I would cover the seats and then give the car a good bath. Wax the paint, chrome and rubber parts and then cover the car with a car cover that breathes. The more I think of it, I think you would be better off keeping the registration current and drive it only on the weekend. The old Buick would love to get out on the open road and your problems in the future would be less — just a thought!

and then I opened my own portrait studio, Mark Frapwell Photography, off Carmel Valley Road near the Evergreen Nursery. When he wasn’t shooting portraits, he focused on photographing landscapes and wildlife for his own pleasure. He began photographing wildlife commercially in 2002 on assignment for the San Diego Zoo in Botswana, Tanzania and South Africa. In 2005, he returned to Africa to shoot publicity photographs for a safari in Kenya. He later accompanied a group of doctors to Nigeria to document their work in surgically removing goiters caused by the excessive use of palm oil in the diets of the local people. Two years ago, to reduce his overhead, he moved his studio to his home, where he continues to do portraits and from where he generates assignments to photograph wildlife. McBride was born in Washington, D.C., while his mother and father were in medical school. The family moved to La Jolla when McBride was 11 months old. “I started fishing and diving about the same time when I was 5,” McBride said. Also about that time, he met legendary San Diego-based, long-range sportfishing skipper Don Sansome, who became his hero and role model. “So from the time I was 5, I wanted to be a captain,” McBride said. “And I started working on boats when I was in the sixth grade.” After high school, he captained private yachts into Mexican, Costa Rican and Alaskan waters. In 1987, he moved to Cabo San Lucas in Baja California, where he lived and worked out of for 21 years. With a growing family, McBride recently returned to La Jolla with his wife, Gabriela, and their two children. Frapwell and McBride wasted no time getting together and catching up on their lives since high school. “I heard that Brett had been doing the “Offshore Adventures” fishing shows,” Frapwell said, “and when we got together he told me about how he was catching and tagging great white sharks and I said, ‘Are you serious?’ And I asked him if they would also need still photography, and he said, ‘Yeah,’ — and I said ‘I’m in.’” Beginning in 2009, the expedition with leader Chris Fischer and marine biologist Michael Domeier traveled to Southern California off Malibu and San Onofre to study juvenile great whites; to the rocky, barren Farallon Islands in the National Marine Sanctuary off San Francisco in search of mature GWS; to Guadalupe Island, Loreto, San Felipe, and the Revillagigedos Islands off of Baja California; and to the Cocos Islands off Costa Rica. By attaching satellite tracking devices and a pop-up tags, and taking measurements, DNA and sperm samples from live wild sharks, scientists are hoping to unravel the life cycle mysteries of the great whites and other sharks — where they are born, how they mate, and their migration routes,

to help conserve and protect these endangered mammals. A 25-foot Contender sport fishing boat and the 126-foot mothership, Ocean, a Bering Sea crabber retrofitted with a 37-ton hydraulic submersible platform, are employed to land, tag and release the great whites. A handline with a barbless baited hook is used to lure and catch the powerful predators. No fancy rods and reels here. And no hooks with barbs. The line that can hold 5,000 pounds with a number of buoys strung together to create hundreds of pounds of drag eventually wears down the shark’s resistance while shark wranglers hand-over-hand reel in the shark. The hooked shark is gently guided onto the cradle of the hydraulic platform lowered from the side of the mothership to four feet below the surface. When the shark is positioned on the cradle, the platform is raised out of the water, the shark’s tail is quickly secured with a rope, and the crew scurries to work on the shark. To keep the shark calm and relaxed during the procedure, it is blindfolded with a wet black towel draped over its eyes. And it keep the shark breathing, a long rubber hose is inserted into the shark’s tooth-filled mouth and hundreds of gallons of oxygenated sea water are pumped into the mouth and out through the gills. The shark is measured, a DNA blood sample is taken, and, from male sharks, a sperm sample is taken. A satellite tracking tag is attached at the dorsal fin, the highest point on the shark and the body-part thought to have less blood flow to nerves and less sensitivity to the attached device. The tracking device, calibrated to relay a signal in real time every time the shark’s dorsal fin breaks the water’s surface, is built to last up to six years is capable of sending 120,000 messages. A secondary pop-up tag is also attached to the shark and the hook and hose are removed. For identification purposes, Frapwell photographs the shark on the platform and, when possible, in the ocean. For the shark’s safety, the shark is returned to the sea in less than 20 minutes and released. The total number of great whites caught, tagged, examined and released was 24, McBride said. Eighteen were caught off Mexico’s Guadalupe Island; three off Malibu, one off San Onofre, and two in the Farallon Islands’ waters. “On each expedition,” Frapwell said, “I probably shoot anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 images digitally. It’s shoot, shoot, shoot.” Next month, the expedition heads for Boca Grande, Florida, in search of Great Hammerheads and Bull Sharks for a planned Season Four of “Shark Men.” For more information, visit www.markfrapwell.com

Holding her line

10 QUESTIONS

Life’s an ongoing lesson for educator They say teaching is the profession that teaches all other professions, and after 40 years in education, Solana Beach resident Nancy Giberson knows there’s truth in that. She has helped to shape many young lives as a teacher, coach, principal and, ultimately, assistant superintendant for the San Diego County Office of Education — a position she retired from last year. After earning her degree at the University of Colorado, Giberson earned her graduate degree in education at SDSU and her doctorate in human behavior and business at the United States International Nancy Giberson University. She was also a fellow in MIT’s Sloan School of Management and a visiting practitioner at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education. Giberson’s distinguished career includes a stint at Torrey Pines High School, where she served as principal from 1988 to 1991 and coached the girls volleyball team though three undefeated seasons from 1974 to 1979. She also served as assistant superintendent for the Santa Cruz County Office of Education, and before that worked for the Cherry Creek (Colo.) and La MesaSpring Valley (Calif.) school districts. Giberson’s outstanding work in education has earned her many honors, though most recently, the California County Superintendents Education Services Associations awarded her with the 2010 Steering Committee Star, an award for those who have played a critical role in fulfilling the committee’s goal. Now that she’s retired, Giberson is enjoying her “eternal summer” here along Solana Beach’s coastline, and though she’s no longer actively engaged in public education, it will always have a very special place in her heart, she said.

Cori Schumacher perches on the nose.

Cori Schumacher, world longboard champion, stays true to who she is BY MARLENA CHAVIRA-MEDFORD Staff Writer It’s not every day that a world champion tops off your coffee, but if you’re eating breakfast at Naked Café in Solana Beach, it’s a likely scenario. That is where you’ll find reigning women’s world longboard champion Cori Schumacher waiting tables. Though she has three titles under her belt — the only female longboarder to hold that distinction — Schumacher does not have any sponsorships and, in fact, she does not want any. She chooses to pay her bills working a nine-to-five because this independence gives her the freedom to publicly speak her mind, and she’s got a lot to say. Schumacher is boycotting the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Longboard Tour this year because one of the events is taking place on Hainan Island in China, a country infamous for human rights violations. This is the first year that ASP has added a second event to the competition, something the women in this industry have been pushing toward for years, making the decision to boycott all the more difficult, Schumacher said. “I felt like I had two choices: I could go with my reservations and wear a ‘Free Tibet’ shirt, or something trite like that. Or, I could stand up for what I believe in

Reigning world champion Cori Schumacher is boycotting this year’s ASP Longboard Tour. She is the first professional surfer to boycott a major event since 1985 when several professional surfers abstained from an event in South Africa to protest apartheid. PHOTO: MARIA CERDA and hopefully call more attention to these issues through a boycott.” Her strategy seems to be working.

Schumacher’s boycott has got people in the surfing world talking and she hopes it’s also got them thinking. “Every event has been in a place with a surf culture, so why China?” The answer, she said, is because there’s a huge push within the surf industry to move production to China, even if it means doing business in a country with a history of putting profit above its workers. “I’m not saying the surf industry shouldn’t go into China, but go in with your eyes open. There needs to be more transparency in the production line and supply chain. The surf industry is a $7.2 billion industry. It has the ability to change some precedents in China.” For example, she said American companies could work with non-government organizations in China, which make unannounced visits to factories to ensure human rights violations are not happening. Schumacher is also using her boycott as a means to spotlight some other human rights violations happening in China, such as the government’s extreme censorship of its people and its one-child policy, which she said has been linked to a spike in infanticide, forced sterilization, forced abortion and even sex slavery.

North Coast Rep rolls out comedy hit ‘King O’ The Moon’ BY DIANA SAENGER Contributor Tom Dudzick is a busy playwright. His trilogy about family life rings true with audiences, and includes humorous scenarios and hearttugging situations that keep it on theater marquees across the country. In 2009, North Coast Repertory Theatre staged his first installment, “Over the Tavern.” The second, “King O’ The Moon,” has its west coast premiere at NCRT beginning April 13. (Part three, “The Last Mass at St. Casimir’s,” will hopefully come to NCRT sometime down the line.) “Over the Tavern,” based on Dudzick’s own upbringing, centers around the Pazinski family of five in the 1950s who live above a tavern but maintain their Catholic family values. “King O’ The Moon,” is set 10 years later in the chaotic 1960s when life in America has changed and the family must deal with weighty issues like divorce, remarriage, war and draft-evasion. Dubbed by many theater critics as “the Catholic Neil

If you go What: “King O’ The Moon,” sequel to “Over the Tavern” When: 7 p.m. Wednesdays and Sundays, 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, some 2 p.m. weekends, through May 8 Where: North Coast Repertory Theatre, 987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Solana Beach Tickets: $30-$47.

Simon,” Dudzick and his plays have broken box office records across the Midwest. Matt Thompson, a frequent artist at NCRT both as an actor and director, directs “King O’ The Moon.” He played the father in “Over the Tavern” and NCRT Artistic Director David Ellenstein said he thought Thompson would be perfect to direct “part two.” “Since I understood the family dynamics and the characters, David thought that made sense, so I agreed,” Thompson said. The cast includes Kandis

Chappell (“Collected Stories”) as Ellen, Julian Conrad (“Twelfth Night”) as Georgie, Kevin Koppman-Gue (“The History Boys”) as Rudy, Ross Hellwig (“The Rainmaker”) as Eddie, John Herzog (“The Tempest”) as Walter, Sunny Smith (“Smokey Joe’s Café”) as Maureen, and Krysten Hafso (“Rebels”) as Annie. “Kandis, as the mother of the family, is a seasoned actor who has performed all over San Diego and is a joy to work with,” said Thompson. “She and John (the family’s long-time employee) get along well together. Kevin,

who has been doing a lot of work, is only 20 years old and played the boy in the Rep’s recent play “The Drawer Boy.” And we have some new actors to the Rep, like my wife Sunny who plays Eddie’s wife. She does a great job. We’ve directed each other before, and we work well together. Georgie is back as a 22-year-old man and Conrad plays him well.” Because of the serious issues facing the characters, parents might want to leave kids ages 12 and under at home. One of those issues is the Vietnam War. A topic, Thompson said, audiences might relate to. “There’s a good parallel here because of the war we’re involved in right now,” he said. “The play touches on some of the horrors of war, and hopefully, the audience will be able to respond to that. This play was written in 1998, but it’s art imitating life. It really gets to the salt of the Earth … who humanity really is. You look at these characters on stage and you recognize yourself or somebody you know.”

Filmmaker creates ‘documentaries that make a difference’

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT Contributor Don’t worry, be happy. Those four little words are a key to the full, fulfilling lives of the 90- and 100-year-olds featured in “Over 90 and Loving It,” a documentary by local resident Susan Polis Schutz. First screened at the Jewish Film Festival in February, it drew such a crowd that two additional screening rooms were opened to accommodate the audience. On April 20, it will have its “official” premiere at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla. For the film, Schutz interviewed people across the country, from all walks of life, including her husband’s uncle, a 94-year-old New York City cab driver. Each fivehour interview included the same 50 questions. “The hardest part was cutting that five hours down to five minutes,” Schutz said, “and deciding which people to use in the film. It’s always hard to drop people, when you come to love them all.” The 13 who made the cut have certain things in common: a healthy lifestyle, a positive attitude, and a commitment to following their passions. They don’t focus on their age or health

City’s Harlem ghetto, was drawn into 1960s activism, and met her husband, Stephen, who had a doctorate in physics and a talent for art. The two made their way to Boulder, Colorado, where Stephen had a job in solar physics, and Susan worked as a freelance writer until one fateful day in 1970, when he decided to illustrate a poem she had written to a friend. They started silk-screening posters in their basement, selling them from the back of their pickup truck. Then they branched out into greeting cards — the humble beginning of their wildly successful company, Blue Mountain Arts. With Susan’s ability to put her personal experiences into words that millions of people could identify with, Blue Mountain cards were like something you’d get from a caring, compassionate, sweetly articulate friend. Books and calendars followed, and then, in the 1990s, they pioneered electronic greeting cards by launching bluemountain. com. They sold that part of the company in 1999. “We got into it because we had nice messages,” said Schutz. “But the business part — all that deal-making — was not for us.” Filmmaking became her

new passion. In 2005, she produced and directed “Anyone and Everyone,” with parents of gay sons and daughters speaking frankly about their kids’ coming out. Like her poems, the film came from personal experience, since her oldest son is gay. “I saw the torture he and his friends went through, telling their families, and what the families went through, and I found some wonderful people to be in the film,” Schutz said. All her films have the same interview format, and generally deal with some issue she’s faced in her life. There’s one on depression, another on following your dreams. Her current project deals with resiliency: How do you turn your life around after tragedy? And she keeps in touch with many of the people in her films. Schutz works with the same team, year after year. Karen Bidgood, her executive assistant for the past 13 years, is her associate producer. (Not so long, in Schutz-time — many of the Blue Mountain staff have been with her more than 30 years!) KPBS has presented all her films, and distributes them to other public television stations.

Waves ho! The ‘ultimate in seaside dining’ describes La Jolla’s famed Marine Room BY WILL PARSON prawling across your field of vision, The Marine Room’s ocean-facing windows provide a breathtaking panorama, especially at high tide when they face the waves head-on. To get an idea of how close you’ll be to the water, consider that in The Marine Room’s first year, 1941, and again in 1982, stormy tides crashed through these windows. The view would be worth getting a little wet for, but manager Matthew Caponi can attest that the current tempered glass windows are strong enough to avoid another breakthrough. Though he does admit, “You never know, it could always happen again.” The Marine Room’s Executive Chef Bernard Guillas and Chef de Cuisine Ron Oliver are gearing up for Marine Room’s summer hightide dinners, which begin in May. This year’s high-tide dinners will also mark Marine Room’s 70th anniversary, though special plans are not yet finalized. The high-tide dinners present Marine Room’s

As of late, the Sesame Peppered Ruby Red Ahi Tuna, served with a white wine hibiscus sauce and black Tai rice, has been a popular dish. Chef Bernard’s crab cakes, with ingredients that vary, are a favorite appetizer. Every night of the week you can get a three-course meal from the “Taste of the Season” menu, with an optional wine pairing and featuring main courses like Maine Diver Scallops and Brandt Beef Short Ribs. Mondays are lobster nights, when you can choose either the Maine Lobster Bisque, served with golden enoki, pancetta and yuzu cream, or the Cypress Grove Purple Haze Goat Cheese Brûlée — yes, that’s goat cheese baked crème brûlée style — for your first stop on the three-course journey. Then you can move on to lobster tail prepared in one of three ways: Pistachio Butter Basted, Sugar Ranch Dill Pollen Spiced, or Lilikoi Kalbi Glazed. With Chef Bernard’s touch, the lobsters definitely seem more at home on your plate than in the surf, crashing just yards away!

Get ‘em while they’re hot! Pick a pair of “Pizza Puppies” at Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC). Dewey and Davey, a pair of Jack Russell Terrier puppies that were found abandoned behind a pizza parlor are eightweeks-old and ready for their own dinner plates. “It almost reminds us of the story of Lady and the Tramp,” says HWAC spokesperson Trisha St. George. “But in this case both Dewey and Davey were tiny puppies when they were found in an alley behind a restaurant. We’ll never understand how someone could look into those precious, innocent little faces and still dump them into an alley where, in all likelihood, they would have died if someone hadn’t happened by and found them.” St. George says that Dewey and Davey are believed to be two months old. Davey weighs nearly 7 pounds and little brother Dewey is still less than 4 pounds. With proper care and nutrition, both puppies are expected to grow up to become happy, healthy, 15 to 20 pound adult dogs. St. George says the adoption fee for

Happy Easter!

Davey and Dewey Dewey or Davey is $295. “There’s also a one time $40 registration fee for the microchip. That way they can be identified if they ever decide to go out for pizza on their own,” St. George said. Pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center also receive a free onenight stay at club pet boarding after the first month.

Has Mango Mania worked its magic at your house? The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE L. KAUFMAN Contributor Their sweet, aromatic scent will draw you into the produce aisle. There, mounds of golden beauties invite you to take them

home, slice them open, and sink your teeth into the sweet, juicy flesh, beads of heavenly nectar dripping down your chin. Ahh, the ambrosia of the fruit kingdom – the heady mango! Here’s a primer on this tropical treat with a quiz at the end. Fruity Facts Mangos originated in East India and Burma, and have been around since the 5th century B.C. when Buddhist monks sang their praises and started touting them to peoples in Malaysia and Eastern Asia.

Today more fresh mangos are eaten all over the world than any other fruit with 20 million metric tons grown throughout the tropical climes. Although India is the leading producer of this revered tree (thought to grant wishes) Indians consume most of their crops, leaving the heavy exporting to Mexico, Brazil and South Africa. The Medicinal Mango The mango’s anatomy consists of the edible fleshy mesocarp, and the woody, flat endocarp or pit. Even though the leaves are toxic if ingested and the sap can cause dermatitis, every part of the mango tree from the bark and skin to the flesh and pit, has been concocted into folk remedies over the centuries to treat or prevent assorted ailments. The lengthy list of medicinal properties attributed to the mango tree includes: anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-asthmatic, a cough suppressant, laxative, cardiotonic, contraceptive and aphrodisiac. The fruit is loaded with Vitamins A and C, fiber, antioxidants and potassium, and is low in fat, calories and sodium. Mangos also contain an enzyme similar to papain in papayas that aids digestion and soothes the tummy, giving a feel-good feeling all around. Mango Tango Mangos can be enjoyed at every meal of the day and straight up as a snack

Sweet and savory mango salsa (COURTESY PHOTO) — either fresh, frozen or in dried strips. Mangos can be blended in smoothies; tossed in oatmeal; or baked in muffins, breads, cobblers or pies. They can be pureed as a topping for ice cream, cakes or sorbets; made into chutneys and salsas to accompany chicken, duck or fish; tossed in seafood cocktails and salads; or made into a chilled soup. Mangos can also be served with sticky rice, grilled and tossed in risotto or tabouli. Finally, make your mango a member of the cocktail culture – serve up mango margaritas, mango tango daiquiris, pineapple and mango rum cocktails and mango martinis. Pick a Winner Mangos are available from April to September, but are at their peak June and July, bringing better prices, too. When selecting a mango use your olfactory, scoping out a fruity, aromatic scent. Avoid ones with soft spots, blemishes

or bruises, but choose mangos that give slightly to the touch. Depending on the variety, some mangos ripen to a tie-dye combo of raspberry, orange and yellow, like the Hadens, while the Ataulos become a buttery yellow hue, still others stay green even though they are ripe. Mangos should be ripened at room temperature for about a week, or to quicken the process, place them in a paper bag. Once ripe, they can be stored in your refrigerate for up to 2 weeks, or frozen, dried, cooked to a syrup or puréed.

Bauer’s Rare Bookstore stocks stacks of wonderful works BY JENNA JAY Contributor Bauer’s Rare Bookstore reinforces Alfred Bauer’s stance on the importance of preserving literature in its written form — a stark contrast to trends in technology with reading devices. “Kindle be gone!” he says. To that end, Bauer, 71, is a proponent of maintaining the Scripps Institution of Oceanography Library at UCSD, which is in danger of closing under proposed budget cuts. His bookstore, one of a few in downtown La Jolla, carries on the tradition of ceiling-to-floor rows of shelves stocked with reading materials and Bauer plans to keep it that way. “Long live the timeless ‘hands on’ approach to reading and browsing,” Bauer said, “for whatever age, it is our fortune to be.” Bauer is also proprietor of the Alcala Gallery, 950 Silverado, the oldest plein-air art gallery in La Jolla. While he incorporates books about the gallery’s artists in his shop at the gallery, Bauer’s greatest literary findings are located in the alleyway behind Girard Avenue, facing onto Drury Lane.

If you go What: Bauer’s Rare Books, in its second year, buys and sells fine books and collections, and also accepts books on consignment. Where: 7466 Girard Ave., La Jolla (facing Drury Lane) Hours: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekends and by appointment Phone: (858) 551-5103 The pet-friendly Bauer’s Rare Books is a hidden gem. The shop features collections on subjects like the fine arts, architecture, photography and interior design, but the bookstore’s most impressive gems are its literary classics. Mark Twain, F. Scott Fitzgerald and even Dr. Seuss are VIPs here with several of their first editions available for purchase. “[I have] John Steinbeck, he’s very popular,” Bauer said. “Mark Twain, ‘Huckleberry Finn.’ It’s endless what I have.” Bauer collects, preserves and conserves books, buying and selling hard-to-find literary keepsakes. The oldest book in his col-

lection dates to 1508, but Bauer declines to disclose their monetary value, “out of respect to my clients,” he explained. “Everything is original,” Bauer said. “We handpick everything here. I put the covers on all the books. It’s a big job.” Young readers will find delights, as well. Original Dr. Seuss books, like “The King’s Stilts,” sit on the shelves behind the counter, and other signed books by Ted Geisel are available for purchase. Among other prized possessions are original Revolutionary War pamphlets, “The Great Gatsby” (sans its original cover), and a signed book by Richard Nixon. The store is managed by Drew Sinclair, whose bronze and aluminum sculptures add even more value to the interior. Bauer has been a bookstore owner since the 1960s, when he opened his first shop on Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach. “In the very near future,” he said, “it is our intention to offer talks to the public about book collecting, the proper care of books, book conservation, how to identify a first edition, and the lure of children’s literature.”

LONGBOARD continued from page B1 “This isn’t about me or any title, this is about something much bigger,” said Schumacher, visibly choked up, the passion and sincerity in her voice almost palpable. “Back in 2001, I had won my first world title, something nobody in my peer group had done. That same year I sat and watched the 9-11 attacks feeling totally helpless. No matter how many trophies and titles I had, I still had this feeling of not being able to change anything in my world.” That moment would prove to plant a seed of activism that has led Schumacher to this boycott today. After the 9-11 attacks, she joined

QUESTIONS continued from page B1 since 1974, with 20 years in the San Dieguito school district. The community and local parents are passionate about the education of our children — and the schools, though struggling financially, are second to none. In that regard, I see us as a model for the rest of the nation. 3. If you could snap

the San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice to oppose the war in Iraq. Schumacher, who married her longtime partner Maria Cerda in 2008, has also been a longtime advocate for gay rights, especially within the surfing world, which she describes as “very homophobic” and “misogynistic.” Schumacher said encountering homophobia and mysogyny when she was 18 and first became a professional shortboarder was “like having your life-long dream shatter before your eyes.” And for Schumacher, professional surfing was quite literally her life-long dream. She was born into surfing. Her mother, Jeannette Prince, was a professional surfer who rode the waves until she was eight months pregnant. Once

Schumacher was born, her father, Craig Schumacher ,had her in the water before she could walk. The family spent winters surfing Cardiff and summers surfing San Onofre. Schumacher received her first surfboard at 5, which she recalls was a blue and yellow single-fin soft board. When Schumacher turned 12, she received a board shaped by Donald Takayama, who still shapes her boards today. While some kids grew up idolizing Magic Johnson and Mary Lou Retton, Schumacher was raised looking up to surfers like the late Rell Sunn, Solana Beach’s Linda Benson and, of course, her mother. No doubt, surfing was one of Schumacher’s first loves — but at 18 when she entered the professional realm, she quickly fell out of

love with the sport. “I decided that I did not want to be part of an environment were women were devalued, so I walked away. It was heartbreaking. I totally stopped surfing. It was that bad.” It was at the urging of her mother that she got back into the water, and eventually the professional realm. Now that she’s returned, she hopes to bring a wave of change to the world of professional women’s longboarding, which is at the bottom of surfing’s hierarchy because it is newer than shortboarding. The problem, she said, is that female longboarders are being subjected to an unfair one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to judging the sport. “Look at gymnastics, women don’t use the rings or

pummel horse, and men have different floor exercises,” she said. “I don’t think women should be expected to mimic men.” That’s especially true of longboarding, which she said is a much more feminine way of surfing than shortboarding. “Shortboarding has reached a point where surfers are using the wave as a platform for doing tricks. It’s a very masculine way of surfing. “Longboarding is all about harmony with the wave, it’s all about riding on the nose. When you’re on the nose, there’s a stillness that happens. There’s this poise and balance that happens.” Schumacher said she’d like to see more judges develop a deeper appreciation for

that type of grace. She’s hopeful that in time those judging standards will evolve — and in the meantime, she’s continuing to perfect her art of riding on the nose of wave, a feeling she said that can be summed up in a single word: “Zen.” “You completely loose yourself in that moment. There is no ‘I’, just movement. Once you feel it, you want to chase it,” she said, seated just yards away from the sea at Naked Café. It’s evident she’s fallen back in love with the sport, and she’s promised herself that she’ll never let something like corporate sponsorships leave her disenchanted again. And so, here she’ll remain, topping off coffees at Naked Café, happy to do it, still in love with surfing, and staying true to who she is.

your fingers and have it done, what might you add, subtract, or improve in the area? I would drastically reduce traffic from the freeways with a much more active, state-of-the-art rapid transit system that would provide service to high volume places like the airport and all the central hubs of cities in San Diego County, then California, and then the USA. 4. Who or what in-

spires you? I’m inspired by educators and leaders developing in others a passion for learning, especially in service of society. 5. If you hosted a dinner party for 8, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? This could be very interesting. The most inspiring class I took at Harvard’s School of Business was studying decision-making of leaders. Since then, I’ve had so many questions for Jimmy Hoffa and Coco Chan-

nel, so I’d start with those modern-day guests. And then to hear about their life and leadership, from their perspective, I’d add Evita (Eva) Peron, Cleopatra, and the 19-year-old Joan of Arc. To facilitate the conversation, can you imagine including ancient spiritual teachers and philosophers, like the Buddha and Muhammad? As the eighth, let’s add the courageous explorer Marco Polo. Wow, what to serve for dinner? 6. Tell us about what you are currently reading. Today, it’s “Nemesis” by Peter Evans. It’s about Aristotle and Jackie Onassis, the love triangle among the Kennedys and the tragedies that occurred when the rivalry spi-

raled out of control. 7. What is your most prized possession? Life’s lessons. 8. What do you do for fun? At the top of my list is traveling, particularly internationally, to explore and play with friends and family. I’m fortunate to have had these opportunities from a very early age. 9. Please describe your greatest accomplishment. I used to say things like completing a rope climb up the face of Half Dome, or coaching undefeated seasons for the varsity volleyball girls at Torrey Pines High School. But now it seems much simpler then tangible wins. It’s

in the eyes of others, and it comes when giving or receiving, often for no apparent reason. 10. What is your motto or philosophy of life? To a large extent we create our own choices, our destiny and our influence on the destiny of others. The trick is recognizing and acting on choices. There are great oneliners I’ve latched on to over time. They come from sources as varied as personal mentors to bumper stickers. They read like, “It’s a great life if you don’t weaken; being average scares the hell out of me; keep your laws off my body; and, are you kind?”

Local musician seeks video, photos of cancer survivors and those who have lost someone to the disease for music project Local musician Michael Tiernan is planning to use a music video to help young adults affected by cancer and is seeking video footage and photos from both cancer survivors and those who have passed on to use in new music video. “Man in white walks in the room He says to have a seat. “I wish I had good news for you.” He says words I can’t believe When I feel so Strong. I feel so Strong.” So start the lyrics to Tiernan’s newly released song, “Strong” (from the album “L.A. Can Wait”). Written for and about his brother Joe, who passed away last summer from a rare form of Sarcoma, the song has elicited a powerful reaction from people who have battled cancer or who have lost someone to the disease. A cancer survivor himself (testicular cancer at age 16), Tiernan has always used his music as a vehicle to help others going through their own battles with disease. Tiernan is currently seeking the help of both his listeners and the general public to provide the content for the music video itself, and is asking them to submit both videos and still images of both cancer survivors and those who have passed on from the disease. Says Tiernan, “Strength happens everywhere, and shines forth when people come together in the midst of their own weakness and hurt. I’m looking for video footage and still shot photos of those Strong ones among us ages 16 - 50 undergoing different stages of their battle with cancer - the good, the bad, the inspiring, and the heartwrenching. I’m looking for images and videos of people’s Strength as they walk their path. I’m thinking of everything, from

people like my friend Julie, who ran a marathon after beating cancer for the third time; or my friend Eric who survived brain cancer and is inspiring others through his advocacy and writings; or the friend I never met, Danny Riley, who’s music still reverberates today as a testimony to his strength as he batMichael Tiernan tled brain cancer; I’m looking for images of vigils, memorials, hospital rooms, treatment time, big smiles, long faces, families, friends, hugs, tears — everything.” Tiernan hopes to spread the video virally, as well as offer the video to different cancer organizations around the world. He will also use it to spearhead a future effort of his to provide private music concerts to cancer patients undergoing treatment and their families. People desiring to submit content to Tiernan for consideration of use in the music video can upload and share videos to the Project Strong Youtube page at www.youtube.com/projectstrong or by contacting Michael and his crew at projectstrong@tiernantunes.com. Photos can be sent directly via email. More information can be found at www.tiernantunes.com/projectstrong and www.youtube.com/projectstrong. Information on Tiernan, his music, and his story can be found at www.tiernantunes.com.

We, at Sol Surf Camp, would like to bring back the old Soul and combine it with a new age style of surfing.

We teach kids from ages 6 and up about water safety, wave riding safety, beach safety all while creating new friends that may last a lifetime. Sol Surf Camp maintains a not greater than a 1 to 3 camper to instructor ratio. Contact us at 619-889-0404 or www.solsurfcamp.com.

The Grauer School, located at 1500 S. El Camino Real in Encinitas, is offering a diverse Summer School curriculum and a wide variety of Summer Camp options beginning June 20-July 29. Open to all students, the Grauer School offers week-long enrichment camps and fully accredited, UC approved summer school classes. Providing the lowest student to teacher ratio of any San Diego private college prep school, core classes will be presented in math, history, government, economics, English, biology, chemistry, Spanish and ASL with camps in art, music, science, computer, sports and study. Classes are teacher-lead with a defined pace of completion. A full semester is condensed into three weeks, therefore demanding personal motivation and independent work capabilities on behalf of the student in order to successfully complete each course. According to Clayton Payne, summer school principal and independent studies director, “Selecting the appropriate summer school program for your child can make the difference in the overall academic selection process when your child applies for entrance into a college or university of their choice. We’re able to offer UC approved classes that will not only serve to educate the students enrolled in our classes but also expose them to the in-depth one-on-one attention that only the Grauer School can offer. College admissions counselors consistently remind us that this is often an integral part of their admissions selections process. Moreover, we offer a wide variety of activities from which to select, therefore providing benefit to all students, regardless of the path they’ve chosen to pursue. As long as they are willing to commit at least one to three hours of homework daily for UC accredited courses, they will successfully graduate from our summer program.” The Grauer School is a UNESCO associated, independent grades 6 –12 college preparatory school accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and is renowned for its expeditionary learning, which has enabled Grauer to provide the most balanced pathway to top colleges available in our region. To learn more about The Grauer School experience, visit www.grauerschool.com or call 760944-6777.

AllStar Baseball and Softball Academy a hit with the pros “If you wish to have your child learn how to play the game of baseball, send them to Coach Kurtis, his instruction is superior.” — Mike Sweeney, Kansas City Royals, five-time AllStar. “Coach Kurtis teaches each student valuable fundamental work that connects them to the game and creates super confidence in all as they learn under him. They graduate from the clinics at a much higher level of ball.” — Brad Ausmus, catcher for the Padres, Astros, Dodgers. “Kurtis Swanberg’s clinics allow the kids to learn the game of baseball and softball while having a great time. They always want to come back over and over again to his program.” — Steve Finley, 19-year MLB veteran and former Padres center fielder. “Coach Kurtis Swanberg has the unique ability to adapt to each player’s skills and progress them each week to another higher level of the game. His coaching is amazing.” — Mark Loretta, Padres, Red Sox, Dodgers. “What is so important in the game of baseball and softball is learning all the fundamentals of the game. Coach Kurtis rounds out the players’ entire game beautifully. They are ready to play solid baseball or softball when they conclude the sessions.” — David Newhan, seven-year Major League Utility Star, Orioles, Mets, Padres. Camps for boys and girls 5-13 years old start June 20. Participants will work to better their pitching, pickoff, hitting, fielding, base running, bunting and bagwork skills.

If you are selling a home or estate in Del Mar, read this... Prime Real Estate in Del Mar is a “Bargain” for Foreign Investors. The question is, do you or your agent know how to reach them effectively?

Foreign investors have both the money and desire to purchase Del Mar real estate. And they do. The question is, how do you attract their interest? How do you showcase your home or estate? The simple answer is, you target them where they get their news or information. And since they don’t live in the local area or read local newspapers, investors look at hyper-local websites like www.delmartimes.net searching for available properties. For example, the site attracts people from 99 countries in March, 2011, and generated 18,519 visits from countries worldwide. It’s interesting to note that the sites largest number of daily foreign visitors come from the United Kingdom, Canada, India,

To reach foreign investors, be sure your agent has a well-developed marketing plan To sell your home or estate quickly and for the most money possible, a thorough marketing plan is a must. So make sure your agent’s plan includes: Q Proper “staging” of your homeand property. Q Showcasing your home or listing in the local paper—like The Times. Q Holding open houses, including

“broker previews”. Q Adding your home to the local multiple listing service so buyers and agents will see it. Q Preparing and sending brochures or well designed flyers to potential buyers. Q Using Internet advertising such as www.delmartimes.net, which attracts tens of thousands of readers monthly from 99 countries worldwide. With a fully developed marketing plan, your agent is prepared to sell your home quickly and for the highest possible price.

W

How to sell your home or estate to the foreign market

Australia, the Philippines, and China. Yes, the countries with the largest numbers of foreign investors, looking for Del Mar real estate. And those investors also work with local agents intimately familiar with the Del Mar market. And those agents are not only looking online, they’re reading the The Times because it has far more local Del Mar listings than any other paper in town. So to maximize your home or estate’s exposure, it’s important your agent is using a dual track: 1) showcasing your home or estate with ads on www.delmartimes.net and, 2) running ads and listings in the The Times.

What one person thinks “expensive”, isn’t so to another. Everything is relative. This is especially true for those purchasing local real estate with Euros, Loonies, Yen or Yuan. In fact, for many European, Canadian, or Mexican real estate investors, purchasing prime coastal real estate in Del Mar can now be done at an amazingly steep discount. All thanks to Mr. Bernanke, who as you know, has continued to cut points in the Fed rate, which has helped trigger further declines in the dollar versus other foreign currencies. And as of this writing, the US dollar against the Euro currently hovers around $1.39, which can be a dream or a nightmare; all depending upon the denomination of ones bank account. Del Mar real estate has long been the desired target of many wealthy foreign investors. But with the falling dollar, Del Mar real estate has now become a screaming bargain to foreign investors around the world.

1. The site daily attracts its most unique foreign visitors from:

1. The paper is hand delivered by the US Post Office to 7,460 Del Mar homes each week.
