RSF Association survey reveals some surprising results BY KAREN BILLING STAFF WRITER The results are in from the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s Long Range Planning Committee’s survey, painting a picture of who lives in the Covenant, how content they are with the way things work and what they see as the most important issues in the community over the next 10 years. The Association board went over the results at its April 21 meeting and were intrigued by what the survey discovered about the Covenant’s demographics. Fifty-two percent of Rancho Santa Fe residents are ages 55 to 74 and 68 percent do not have children. Only eight percent of those with children have kids under the age of 5. Forty-eight percent have children in the 14 to 18 age range. Rancho Santa Fe’s population is a stable one, as 76 percent of residents have lived here longer than 10 years. The four-page survey was sent out in January and had a 46 percent return rate — of the 1,768 mailed, 805 were returned. “When it comes to mail-outs — in this day and age — that’s pretty good,” said Claire Booth of Lux Insights, the market research consultant hired by the Association to handle the survey.

Water district cuts costs from next year’s budget BY JOE TASH Santa Fe Irrigation District directors agreed to cut more than $800,000 in expenses from next year’s budget during a special workshop session held on Monday, April 25. The cuts include trimming $520,000 from the water district’s operating budget, and a decision by the board not to make a $311,000 payment into a trust fund for future retiree health benefits, from the spending plan for the fiscal year that begins July 1. The current year’s operating budget, including debt ser-

vice, is $22.8 million. During the workshop, directors provided guidance to staff as they prepare next year’s budget. Among the questions the board considered was how much the San Diego County Water Authority — the district’s supplier of imported water — will increase its water rates next year, and how much local water from Lake Hodges will be available. The district has been told by the water authority that the cost of imported water will rise between 9.5 and 17.8 percent next year, but a firm number won’t be

available for about a month. In the meantime, directors told staff to build a 14 percent increase into next year’s budget. Directors also told staff to plan for meeting about half of the district’s water needs with local water from Lake Hodges, which is full from this winter’s above-average rainfall. The district expects to need 10,750-acrefeet of water to serve its customers this year, a number that has been declining in recent years due to conservation efforts, rising water

Rancho Santa Fe School District receiving delayed state funding BY KAREN BILLING Better late than never, the Rancho Santa Fe School District recently received $6.4 million of supplemental grant funding from the state that was delayed from last year. An additional $1.8 million is on the way, bringing the total they will receive from the state for modernization, new construction and overcrowded relief to $8.3 million. The money will be used to complete the district’s renovation project, adding in some of the things they had to take out when they found out their state funding was delayed—items such as classroom furniture and equipment, access control and security equipment, science discovery pond, and the ability to make the Performing Arts Center “school ready” by purchasing chairs, sound, lighting and a curtain for the stage, which is set to arrive next week.

See BUDGET, page 29

The funds will also be used to complete the plans for the new artificial turf field and running track. Additionally, the funds will be used to repay money owed from developer fees and the general fund. “We were hoping for about $4 million but we were able to maximize our eligibility,” said district superintendent Lindy Delaney. “We’re thrilled. It feels like years of work paying off for something good for the school district.” The money is tagged specifically for the facility improvements, it cannot be used for operations, to pay for teachers or supplies. “The money is great in terms of making the district whole after it strained to complete the renovation, “ said Tom Shepard, a longtime consultant of the district’s “But it doesn’t eliminate the need for community See SCHOOL, page 26

SDG&E pole replacement to take place in Covenant As a result of the fires of 2007, SDG&E is in the process of switching out wooden poles for steel poles at the directive of the California Public Utilities Commission. Poles will be replaced within the Covenant on a transmission line starting south of Del Dios Highway/east of La Valle Plateada and continuing eastward to the edge of the Covenant. The existing wood poles range from 45-75 feet and are typically 20 inches in diameter. The new steel poles will be taller and a little wider — 45 to 90 feet, with a diameter of 30 inches. Further decreasing the risk for fire, the poles will

Ivan Holler, Covenant administrator, said SDG&E’s initial plan was for the poles to be galvanized silver, but the Association was able to get SDG&E to agree to Corten steel (a reddish-brown appearance) instead. The rust look will more closely resemble the wood and blend in better with the surrounding environment, Holler said. — Karen Billing

SD City Council approves Flower Hill Promenade upgrade in unanimous vote The San Diego City Council voted last unanimously to approve the revitalization of Protea Properties’ Flower Hill Promenade shopping center. This decision, which follows favorable votes from the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board and City of San Diego Planning Commission, represents the final approval needed to allow construction to begin. “We are thrilled the City Council voted to support the revitalization,” said Jeffrey Essakow, president of Protea Properties. “This decisive victory reflects seven years of work developing a plan in concert with the community that will bring the type of center that this community deserves.” Prior to the vote, the City Council heard positive testimony from neighbors, tenants and shoppers from the center. A number of other supporters attended the hearing wearing stickers that said “Yes on Flower Hill!” Representatives from Spindrift, a community of 144 homes located directly north of the shopping center, were particularly persuasive advocates for the revitalization. “After working closely with Protea to refine the revitalization plans over the course of several months, we are pleased to see the City Council allow this project to move forward,” said Horace Dietrich, president of the Spindrift Homeowners Association. “We believe these kinds of changes are definitely needed and will provide significant benefits to our community.” Spindrift residents initially expressed concerns about the revitalization due to the potential realignment of Flower Hill Drive, which is located on the shopping center’s property and serves as the only access to Spindrift. The City originally proposed to move Flower Hill Drive north of Taste of Thai restaurant. At the community’s request, Protea amended its plans to maintain Flower Hill Drive in its current position and recirculated the project’s environmental document. As a result, the Spindrift Homeowners Association voted unanimously to support the revitalization. The proposed project will add new shops, boutique office space, a parking structure tucked into the hillside and a Whole Foods market. The revitalization will also refresh the existing shopping center and its collection of unique boutiques and locally-owned shops. The project is expected to open in 2012. — Submitted by Flower Hill Promenade

Jury refuses damage award but says school negligent BY KELLY WHEELER CITY NEWS SERVICE A jury refused Wednesday to award damages to a former La Jolla Country Day student who claimed she was bullied by classmates and that the school retaliated against her when she complained, but did find the school negligent. Desiree Bagby, now 18, sued in 2009, alleging she suffered emotional distress at the hands of top LJCD ad-

ministrators and that the school breached its contract with her to re-enroll for her junior year. After a four-week trial, jurors found that school headmaster Christopher Schuck and high school principal Roderick Jemison were not out of line in their dealings with Bagby, but found that LJCD was negligent and breached its contract with her. Both sides claimed vic-

tory. “This was the end of a very long process in which the school continually said that this was not a case of bullying, and the jury fully agreed,” said Chris Lavin, director of communications and marketing for La Jolla Country Day. “This was a young woman who, unfortunately, was facing expulsion from See JURY, page 26

County tops among rating agencies Despite a troubled economy, the County of San Diego has received high marks among the nation’s top rating agencies, Supervisor Pam Slater-Price announced Monday. “We have built a solid financial house,” Slater-Price said, “and that’s reflected in our ratings.” Standard and Poor’s and Fitch gave the County their highest ratings of AAA. Moody’s Investor Services rated the County at the second-highest level, Aa1. The high marks came as a result of the County’s conservative budgeting, spending reductions that mirror declines in revenue and low levels of debt. Released as part of $19.3 million in refinancing of the county’s Metropolitan Transit System Tower Complex in downtown San Diego, the ratings reflect a confidence among credit agencies that County officials are skilled money managers. “We do not believe the rating will change within the outlook’s two-year horizon due to our expectation that the County will likely maintain, what we consider, good financial performance and contingency reserves despite the recent economic downturn and uncertainty over state program funding,” a Standard and Poors statement said. The rating agencies noted that the County maintains substantial savings for economic uncertainties. “A dollar saved is a dollar earned,” Slater-Price said. “With to our conservative fiscal policies we can borrow money inexpensively should the need arise. When we are frugal with public dollars, the private sector is energized to create jobs and grow the economy.” — Submitted by Slater-Prices’ office.

Woodward Center donates life-saving masks for animal fire victims “Mouth-to-snout” resuscitation has been the only hope for animals suffering smoke inhalation…until now. The Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC) recently donated animal respirator kits to a dozen fire rescue crews serving coastal North County. Each of the crew received a kit with respirator masks designed to fit small, medium, and large pets. “We saw a report about a dog in Long Beach that had been trapped in a burning building,” says HWAC spokesman John Van Zante. “The firefighters attached a pet respirator mask to their oxygen tank and administered treatment right there at the fire scene, saving the dog’s life.” Van Zante says that the news report touched the heart of HWAC Sponsorship Manager Nedra Abramson so much that she investigated whether the masks were being used in San Diego County. “Nedra learned that most of the fire department officials she spoke with had pets at home, but she couldn’t find one single fire crew in the county that had a pet respirator kit.” “Helen Woodward Animal Center is in the business of saving lives,” says HWAC President Mike Arms. Eighty percent of the pets adopted from the Center are transferred from shelters and rescue groups that are overcrowded, can’t afford to keep them, or have just run out of time. Providing these kits for the firefighters is an extension of the work that we’re already doing.” For more information about Helen Woodward Animal Center call 858-756-4117, log on to, or visit the Center at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Physician/writer scores big with his epic first novel Editor’s note: Stanford University professor of medicine Dr. Abraham Verghese, author of two memoirs and the best-selling novel, “Cutting for Stone,” was the guest speaker at the April 19 luncheon of the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society at The Grand Del Mar. The luncheon series is sponsored by Northern Trust, the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center and this newspaper. The next and final luncheon of the 2010-2011 series on May 12 will feature Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Cunningham and his latest book, “By Nightfall.”

BY ARTHUR LIGHTBOURN CONTRIBUTOR For working physician Abraham Verghese, what began simply as an image he had in his mind of a young beautiful missionary nun giving birth to a child in a convent far away from her home, was transformed over a period of eight years into an extraordinary 534-page epic first novel, “Cutting for Stone,” that has climbed steadily up the bestseller charts since it was published 27 months ago. “And for those of you involved in writing a novel,” Verghese told an overflow audience at the April 19 luncheon of the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society, “I hope you have a hell of a lot more to go on than that.” But for Dr. Verghese (pronounced: ‘Ver-geese’),

that trial-and-error approach was the way he chose to “push forward” in order to create what has become a cast of memorable characters in a story spanning decades and generations from India, to Ethiopia, to an inner-city hospital in New York City. The narrator, who begins his story in the womb, is the first-born of identical twin boys, born by Caesarian to a nun in a mission hospital in Ethiopia, abandoned by the English surgeon suspected of being their father, and adopted by an Indian couple, both physicians, who worked at the mission hospital. The story tracks the lives of the twins, both who become doctors, as they grow to manhood with dramatically different personalities through times of political turmoil in Ethiopia while haunted by the nagging questions about their mother, Sister Mary Joseph Praise, who died birthing the twins, and the man thought to be their father, the brilliant surgeon Dr. Thomas Stone. “Cutting for Stone,” a title derived from the physicians’ Hippocratic Oath, has been optioned for a movie by Anonymous Content, the producers of the much-acclaimed films, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “Babel.” As for Verghese, well,

he’s continuing his day job as a physician while enjoying time off from writing before hunkering down for possibly another marathon effort to create another novel, “unless a compelling non-fiction story comes to mind.” In the meantime, he writes the occasional op-ed or book review. We interviewed Verghese in the library of The Grand Del Mar prior to his luncheon talk. Verghese, 55, is a clinician at Stanford University’s School of Medicine, a professor for the theory and practice of medicine, and se-

nior associate chair of the department of internal medicine. He was born in Ethiopia in 1955 of Indian parents who had been hired by Emperor Haile Selassie as teachers to work in a school near the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa. When Selassie was deposed in 1974, Verghese briefly joined his parents who had moved to the U.S. and where he worked as an orderly before going to India to earn his medical degree at Madras Medical College in 1979 and complete his internship. Returning to America for his residency, he discovered only the less popular hospitals and communities were willing to accept foreign medical graduates, an experience he details in an early New Yorker magazine article, “The Cowpath to America,” and later in his first best-selling memoir, “My Own Country: A Doctor’s Story.” He did his residency (1980-83) at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee, followed by a fellowship in infectious disease at Boston University School of Medicine. While working at Boston City Hospital for two years, he witnessed the beginning of the urban epidemic of HIV in that city. Returning to Johnson

City (population: 50,000), as a tenured assistant professor of medicine, he soon found himself involved in his second AIDS epidemic but now in a rural setting. It was thought that he might have one or two patients a year in Johnson City afflicted with the deadly virus, but to everyone’s surprise, he found himself with more than 100 patients at a time when there were no known effective treatments for AIDS except words of comfort. He discovered that many young gay men who earlier had fled the confines and judgmental prejudices of their small hometowns for a freer life in the big cities were returning to their hometowns and families to die as terminal AIDS patients. Verghese wrote a scientific paper on the phenomenon of the AIDS epidemic in a small town, but he felt there was a better way to tell the whole story and its effects on the patients, their families, their caretakers and the doctors who tried to help them. “I felt my scientific paper didn’t begin to capture the whole dimension of it,” he said. “That’s when I took myself more seriously as a writer and wanted to tell the story of HIV as I lived through it.” After working with HIV

in Tennessee, he recalled, “I was burnt out. I told myself I needed a break otherwise I would not survive. And I decided to take a sabbatical of some sort, some how.” He discovered that the only criteria needed for admission to the prestigious Iowa Writers Workshop at the University of Iowa were two short stories. “I sent them in and they took me and I went,” he said. He was in his mid30s at the time. “It was a big leap of faith because I cashed in my tenure and retirement plan, and took my young family there.” While at Iowa, he worked one day a week at an HIV clinic to help with his expenses and to keep his sense of bearing “because I see myself fundamentally as a physician and that’s how I view the world.” “The writers workshop itself, you’ll be surprised to learn,” he said, “only meets one day a week,” to discuss and critique the participants’ two submitted short stories. The remainder of his year-and-half at the workshop, was devoted to writing “to discover your voice,” and “catching up” by reading more than a dozen books a week by authors he wanted to study. He earned his master of fine arts degree from the University of Iowa in 1991.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Dee DeTarsio


Writer, who reluctantly joined digital revolution, gaining international readership as e-Author of ‘chick lit’ novels BY ARTHUR LIGHTBOURN Contributor Dee DeTarsio, a former TV producer/writer, is convinced that life (i.e. “the universe”) gives us “clues” every once in awhile on how to proceed. “Sometimes things happen that direct you to a certain path.” Take the time, about eight months ago, when, after laboring for 10 years writing women’s ‘chick lit’ fiction novels that never found a publisher, suddenly her agent, actually her third agent, became a recession casualty and lost her job. DeTarsio, mother of two college-age children, had written some seven novels, had lots of encouragement along the way, but no sales — and now, no agent. How’s that for a “clue!” “I was devastated,” she recalls, “and went into a real funk.” That’s when her husband, a television director of photography and practical guy, suggested, “Get it on Amazon.” He had bought DeTarsio a Kindle, the portable e-book

reader, for Christmas a few years back, but she knew virtually nothing about the intricacies of e-publishing, and then there was this “stigma” she felt about self-publishing. She thought about it and finally, like one of those damsels in distress in her novels, she “took matters into my own hands and joined the digital revolution.” “There still is kind of a stigma about e-publishing and self-publishing,” she admits, “but I decided, ‘I’m gonna do it.’ And I’m so glad I did. “No one read my books before and now I have 10,000 people who have read my books — two novels and a novella published already and three more novels on deck and ready to go.” Her first Amazon Kindle novel, “The Scent of Jade,” priced at $2.99, published last October, is a quirky action-adventure that follows a woman lost in the Costa Rican rainforest with an ancient idol that may hold secrets to global warming — a sort of a combination of “Romancing the Stone” meets “Survivor.” The idea of writing an

Quick Facts Name: Dee DeTarsio Distinction: Former local TV producer/writer Dee DeTarsio, who joined the digital revolution, is gaining international readership as an eAuthor of chick lit novels after 10 years of trying to publish through traditional literary print publishers. Born: Fremont, Ohio Education: B.A. in communications with emphasis in mass media, Ohio State University, 1982 Family: Married to television director of photography John DeTarsio. They have two children: Tyler, 21, and Gianna, 19, both communications students at Cal State San Marcos. Favorite TV: “The Soup” on E! Entertainment Television and HG (Home and Gardens) TV Recent reading: “Daughters of Rome,” by Kate Quinn; and “Heads, You Lose,” by Lisa Lutz Physical regimen: Daily workouts at the Pacific Athletic Club Philosophy: “Life gives us clues along the way.”

action-adventure chick-lit was triggered, she said, by an observation made by her husband. “He’s a really great editor,” she said. She reads her manuscripts to him at night when they are in bed. One night, he said, “Boy, women sure do think a lot. Can’t you blow something up or kill somebody.” Good idea, she thought, for her, a departure from traditional chick lit. “Women are good multi-taskers. We can have deep thoughts even while we’re on the run with a jade monkey in the jungle. That novel was so much fun to write.” She is currently working on a screenplay adaptation of “The Scent of Jade.” To spur on the marketing, she added a novella, at the almost give-away price of 99 cents, “Til Somebody Loves You,” a chick lit set in Chicago which portrays a “damsel in distress” copywriter’s search for her one true love. And, she just published her third work, another women’s fiction novel, “The Kitchen Sink,” which she still has to promote, but it is already finding a readership. In three months, DeTarsio’s works attracted more than 3,000 downloads, and, depending on the day, was #60 in the Amazon Kindle humor category, #70 in romantic suspense, and reached #6 on romantic fiction in Great Britain. We interviewed DeTarsio in her local home. She’s a super-energy mother of two college-age children. Before she became a stay-at-home mom, she used to make her living as a television producer/writer, freelancer and marketing director. DeTarsio was born Dee Frampton in Fremont, Ohio, the “classic” middle child and in a family of five sisters. Her dad is a retired plumbing and heating contractor and former gas station owner. Her mom was an insurance sales rep. Although her father was never famous, she likes to say, and her mother never beat her (that hard), she suspects that one of her sisters is a vampire. After earning a bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in mass media from Ohio State University in 1982, she left the cold of Ohio for a job as a TV

Author Dee DeTarsio (PHOTO: JON CLARK) news producer at a TV station in Tucson, Arizona, ironically with the call letters KOLD-TV, where she worked for three years and met her future husband, John DeTarsio, who was a cameraman. The couple subsequently moved to San Diego; he, working in television and she, initially joining SeaWorld’s entertainment department as a producer/writer, and then signing on with the NBC affiliate 7/39 as a public affairs producer/writer and associate producer of the Larry Himmel live comedy show. “Then I got pregnant with Tyler (her first-born) and I was an at-home mom, but also did freelance producing and writing for television and then went to the print side as a writer in the marketing department of Children’s Hospital and later as marketing director of a cosmetic dermatology group, where I got free Botox.” And through all that, she filled hundreds of “sticky notes” with story ideas for her favorite genre, women’s fiction, and even wrote a novel, “which will never see the light of day, but it was fun.” “I write what I like to read, women’s fiction and chick lit, and I’m a ‘happilyever-after’ kind of girl. It’s re-

ally hard for me to read sad endings. I feel ripped off.” Two of her favorite authors are Susan Isaacs, one of the early women’s fiction writers, whose characters tend to be funny, smart and mouthy, but can be a damsel in distress and can also save their own day; and Irish writer Marian Keyes, a skillful story-teller with wit and marvelously funny characters. Although her first attempt at a novel was never published, it did result in her getting her first of eventually three agents, which encouraged her to keep on writing, and motivated her to take a writing class at UCSD called ‘Unmuddling the Middle’ taught by author Janice Steinberg. “That was my first exposure of letting people, who were unrelated to me, read my stuff and tell me what they liked and what they didn’t, and it was mortifying,” she said. “You’re so vulnerable.” But, she conceded, it was an invaluable way for her to learn and grow as a writer. That writing class then led to her being invited to join a book-writing group that she has been with now for four years and that has helped her in editing her manuscripts.

She hired a friend who is a graphic artist and photographer to create covers for her books. (“A dog cover can sink your ship,” she warns.) And she commissioned professionals online in India to format her books so they could be uploaded correctly to Amazon’s Kindle and Barnes & Noble’s Nook. To get her books on Apple’s iPad, she also had to go through one of eight aggregate suppliers. “One of them is called Smashwords, an online book source, and that’s who I used. By publishing myself, through Smashwords, I was able to get on the Apple iBookstore for the iPad, as well as the Sony e-reader, Diesel, Kobo and the Nook. And, of course, you have to pay to have your Website designed. “You want to be as professional and serious-looking to compete with authors with publishing contracts. That’s the goal.” Since last October, she sold 4,000 books through Amazon and 6,000 books through Smashwords. What she loves most about her life as an e-writer is writing. What she likes least is having to self-promote. “It stinks,” she insists, but as an eAuthor, it is absolutely essential, she believes. “Since we don’t have a physical ‘tree book’ to sell, eAuthors have to work extra hard to find a spot on readers’ bookshelves.” No easy job, she said, because “there are millions of me out there,” e-Authors trying to sell their books. “You just have to hope you have a good story to tell and that people find you.” Drawing on her marketing savvy, she has offered giveaways as incentives, free Kindle egift books from Amazon and gift certificates on the Nook, as well as PDF files for people without eReaders. Her e-books are priced between 99 cents and $2.99 per book. She receives a royalty of 35 percent on her 99cent books and 70 percent on her higher priced books. She is beginning to see some profit. “I’ve made my costs back,” she says happily, “but the villa in Italy still remains a fantasy.”

Del Sol Lions Club to celebrate Mardi Gras for a good cause BY MARLENA CHAVIRAMEDFORD Staff Writer The Del Sol Lions Club is inviting the community to join in a Mardi Gras-themed celebration on Saturday, May 14, complete with live entertainment, casino games, a silent auction, and dinner — all to raise money for two worthy local charities. The first annual fundraiser at Lomas Santa Fe Country Club will benefit Reality Changers, a nonprofit that helps disadvantaged youth become first-generation college students; and Saint Leo’s medical and dentals clinics, a volunteer-run operation that provides care to patients in extreme financial need. Both of these organizations were selected because they align with the Del Sol Lion’s goal of helping local disadvantaged youth and families at risk. “Teens completing Reality Changers are tomorrow’s suc-

cess stories,” said RSF resident Maria McEneany, a co-chair for the event. “They have demonstrated a lowered high school drop-out rate, increased college graduation rates, defied local homicide rates, broken the cycle of incarceration, decreased teenage pregnancy, and have no involvement with drugs or alcohol.” “Learning there is a lengthy waiting list for the Solana Beach Reality Changer Program and with concern over local youth drug and gang involvement, Reality Changers was chosen to provide at-risk teens the opportunity to participate in this program realizing they are our future leaders,” added Roz Hodgins, the other co-chair for this event. Though Saint Leo’s medical and dental clinics have a different mission, they are equally deserving of community support, added Del Sol Lions program director Linette Page. “We selected the clinics

recognizing they are in immediate need of costly equipment, medications, professional volunteers, specialists, and the ongoing support of Del Sol Lions as they service over 5,000 patients annually,” she said. “St. Leo’s Medical and Dental Clinics, through an all volunteer team of doctors, dentists, and medical professionals, provide comprehensive medical and dental services to the poorest of the working poor without insurance, who, except for emergencies, would be unable to obtain such services,” said Deacon Al Graff, one of three clinic founders. Both of these charities depend heavily upon support from the outside sources, and during the May 14 gala, the community will have a chance to give back to them in a big way. The festivities kick off with a 6 p.m. silent auction, which includes appetizers and a complimentary glass of champagne that patrons can enjoy while

Del Sol Lions Mardi Gras Who: Del Sol Lions Club What: A Mardi-Gras themed gala Where: Lomas Santa Fe Country Club, 1505 Lomas Santa Fe Drive When: Saturday, May 14, at 6 p.m. browsing the more than $15,000-worth of items up for bid, including: dinner for eight in the VIP room of Tommy V’s; diamond earrings from the Diamond Boutique; golf lessons and a round at Lomas Santa Fe County Club; passes to the Turf Club; a day of sailing for four; and weekend getaways at Viceroy Hotels, Del Mar Hilton, Carmel Valley Double Tree, and L’Auberge — all prizes that will be auctioned-off to raise money for the beneficiary charities.

After the auction there will be dinner with a complimentary wine pour and the “Fund-a-Need” portion of the evening where patrons can donate toward specific items the beneficiary charities need. Each charity has put together a “wish list” that highlights basic needs, so, for example, if the St. Leo’s Medical Clinic needs a blood-pressure cuff, someone can donate specifically toward that. This will also be the time when the audience can learn more about each organization and hear from youths who have been through the Reality Changers program, and the volunteers who run Saint Leo’s medical and dental clinics. That will be followed by a Capoiera dance performance, and after that, patrons will be given $250-worth of play money for the on-sight casino room, where they enjoy poker, black jack, roulette, and craps. Patrons can also buy more play money, which also benefits the

charities. At the end of the evening they can turn in that play money for chips, which can then be exchanged for raffle tickets for prizes. Tickets to this event can be purchased for $125 per individual, or $1,000 for a table of 10. That ticket price includes appetizers and a glass of champagne, dinner and a wine pour, live entertainment, $250-worth of casino play money, and a fresh water pearl necklace from the Diamond Boutique. Because the event is Mardi Grasthemed, masks and beads are encouraged. The Del Sol Lions are still in need of sponsors for this event, with sponsorships ranging from $500 to $20,000. To purchase tickets or become an event sponsor, please email Maria McEneany at or call her at 858-759-2620. For more information, visit delsol/

Rancho Santa Fe Review

UCSD duo’s book suggests ways to close job gap BY KATHY DAY STFF WRITER Put two educators who develop programs for extended learning in a room with an economist who studies technology and innovation, and you’re bound to generate interesting discussion. In one particular case, the discussion evolved into the book: “Closing America’s Job Gap: How to Grow Companies and Land Good Jobs in the Age of Innovation.” Its authors are Mary Walshok, UCSD’s associate vice chancellor for public programs and dean of the University Extension program; Henry DeVries, UCSD assistant dean of Extension, and Tapan Munroe, an economist who specializes in environmental economics and analysis of the hightech industry. Walshok said she was getting ready to write a book about innovation and in talking with DeVres and with inspiration from Munroe, they decided that innovation alone wasn’t the right topic.

She had just returned from Washington, D.C., and talks about the state of the economy when they decided to key in on the fact that “America is not putting people to work,” she said in a recent interview, with DeVries interjecting, “It’s a jobless recovery.” “Too many Americans expect the old jobs to come back,” Walshok said. Instead, they should be looking at “what jobs are there and what job can I create for myself.” As they talked, both said, the book came into focus: How to close the jobs gap. “We built on our knowledge as educators,” she said, looking at retooling, re-skilling and re-educating. “We know that’s going to be essential across all jobs careers.” Instead of thinking just about innovation, they wrote about how technology can change careers. They split the book into two sections. One analyzes the job gap and “the disparity between the good jobs being created by small busines-

innovation in the U.S. and the lack of American workers with the skills to fill these jobs.” The other examines San Diego as a case study, looking at how it has used its universities, entrepreneurial spirit, collaboration and training to build its economy and applies those lessons to the workforce. The San Diego example, they write, shows that if a region is serious “about innovation and job creation” they should bring together the “research community, the entrepreneurs and investors, the economic developers, and the educators and workforce-training organizations.” The work wraps up with an extensive addendum they called “Deeper Reflections on Innovation and Job Creation.” Sixteen sectors are creating jobs today, DeVries said, citing health-information technology, data mining, and Spanish-English translation and interpretation. And in some instances, there is a shortage of qualified employees. He pointed to Northrop Grumman,

which has hundreds of openings in San Diego and Qualcomm, whose founder recently testified before Congrees about the need for visa programs so they can find enough engineers and technical people. The book tells individual stories of people closing the jobs gap. He cited one woman, who had been a trained as teacher. Unable to find a job in education, she took a position as a hotel desk clerk. Startled by the amount of waste the hotel generated, she started a recycling program and found a program offering a certificate in Sustainable Business Practices. After landing an internship in Pasadena with Waste Less Living, she is now a sales consult company, she teaching others – including children – how to reduce waste. The goal of programs that offer specialized training is to help people build a bridge from where they were to where the economy is going, Walshok noted. DeVreis added that their book is not just about training the workers. Em-

ployers, too, need to be aware of the jobs gap and offer time off for training as well as funding to improve and update their employees’ skills. The interviews they have done about the book across the country have reinforced the fact that “everything in America is local,” Walshok said. “If you are going to solve the jobs problem in Toledo, you will have to have a different set of skills than if you are in San Diego.” That points up the fallacy, she added, that we think national policies can solve

the problem. Rather, she added, the national policy “needs to empower the local community.” She said she made that point in an interview on the Bloomberg News Channel in which the other interview subject — speaking from a different locale — was President Obama. “We need government investing from the bottom up, not the top down,” she added, suggesting that funds that “prime the pump” through matching grants and community college programs are ways to leverage the spending. But closer to home, DeVries said people need to take charge of their futures by updating their skills and understanding technology. Employers, he said, “want people who are willing to learn.” A bachelor’s degree, the pair agreed, “is a license to learn for the world of work.” But a specialized certificate these days may be the icing on the cake that sells the employer on the prospective hire’s knowledge of today’s workplace.

Momo’s Applesauce success a family affair BY KAREN BILLING Staff Writer A Rancho Santa Fe couple is trying to bring their grandmother’s treasured applesauce into more homes with the distribution of Momo’s Applesauce. David and Christy Wise have successfully implemented their family’s much-loved recipe into stores such as Z’s Private Post in Cielo Village, MJ’s Deli in Mira Mesa, Gelson’s and Jimbos. It’s also available for purchase online. “It really sells itself,” said David Wise. “Every store we walk into says ‘yes.’ They like it because it’s local, it’s a better product and the label stands out.” The Momo’s Applesauce jar sold in stores comes with a painting of Momo on the label, her bright blue eyes and smile perfectly illustrated. “It so reflects her sweet face,” said Christy Wise. “I hope it goes far and

everybody likes it,” said Dolores “Momo” Wise. “If it really takes off then David and Christy will be rewarded for all their efforts,” Momo has been making her applesauce since 1947. Raising three boys, she was always looking for good foods to feed her children. “I would pick up a jar of applesauce and doctor it up with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg,” said Wise. “It wasn’t worth spending the money on it so I decided I’ll just make my own.” Wise uses a deliciously simple recipe: Granny Smith apples. “Those are the best,” she says. She mixes the apples with water, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. The applesauce is thick and chunky, sweet and easy to eat by the bowlful. “It’s good anywhere,” said Momo, who always puts her applesauce into apple pies and has also used it

for cookies and pancakes. Her jars of applesauce became gifts on the holidays and the family, which grew to include five grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren, would fight over them. In addition to applesauce, she also spoils her family with baked goods such as brownies, muffins and cookies, as well as strawberry, apricot and pear preserves. ‘Today, with everything that’s going on, a gift that’s homemade is always more special,” Momo said. The applesauce is now made by Wise Family Foods, LLC, with apples from California and Washington states. They have production capacity to satisfy any demand from 150 to 150,000 cases while maintaining the quality and integrity of Momo’s “timehonored recipe.” To find out more, visit www.momosapplesauce. com.

The Momo’s Applesauce team includes: Oscar Rodriguez, vice president of ‘Apeeling Development’; David Wise, chief ‘Apple Officer’; Dolores ‘Momo’ Wise; Christy Wise, ‘Core Apple Officer’; and Tamara Dutra, vice president of ‘Apeeling “Relations and Marketing.’ PHOTO: KAREN BILLING

Rancho Santa Fe Review

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. (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.”

AUTHOR continued from page 6

His advice to aspiring writers: “Read widely. You have to know what the standard is. Write a lot and remember that the art is in revision.” Although his first two published books were nonfiction memoirs, he knew while studying in Iowa, he wanted eventually to write a novel that would include a missionary hospital and a child’s early introduction to and fascination with medicine. Later came the ideas of conveying the romance of studying medicine, placing the novel in Africa “in a bare bones setting” and “connecting it with America, much in the fashion of my own life.” Upon completing the program in Iowa, Verghese joined Texas Tech Health Sciences Center in El Paso, Texas, where he remained for 11 years. He began publishing short stories in vari-

ous magazines, completed his first memoir dealing with his experiences with HIV, and wrote a second memoir, “The Tennis Partner: A Story of Friendship and Loss,” dealing with death of his friend, a medical resident in recovery from drug addiction. In Texas, Verghese also served for five years as the founding director of The Center for Medical Humanities and Ethics at the University of Texas Health Center. His commitment to the patient-centered bedside medicine and his growing reputation as a clinician, teacher and writer, led to his recruitment in late 2007 to Stanford University’s School of Medicine as a tenured professor and associate chair of internal medicine. Verghese lives in Palo Alto. He is married and is in the process of separation and divorce. He has three sons.

support for programs.” In other words, parents should not shy away from contributing for school programs. Back in 2005, the district became eligible to enter into a state funding program for modernization and improvements as it had “unhoused students” (students attending class in portables), buildings that were 30 and 50 years old, and the school was overcrowded. Once the district had an eligible project when the bond measure passed in 2008, they could apply for the funding and they were accepted into the program in 2009. The district was granted unfunded approval for $2.9 million, which they used to be part of the $39.5 million Rowe renovation project. It wasn’t until the district was midway through the construction on the new Rowe that they learned the $2.5 million they had counted on was going to be delayed. At that point, the district began to de-scope the project, cutting back on certain additions for the school, things that they could do later. The renovation was a

drain on the district’s resources, Delaney said, as they borrowed from the general fund, developer’s fees and special reserves to be able to complete it. “Even though we borrowed, we still decided to de-scope because we weren’t sure what was going to happen with the state,” Delaney said. “The state was telling us it was not an ‘if’ but ‘when’ that we would get the money, but we decided to treat it as an ‘if.’” The district ended up de-scoping $1.8 million worth of upgrades and modernization, including the renovation of the play field. With the money coming in, Delaney said the next few board meetings will be spent deciding which items to put back into the school and on what timeline. The funds will also help restore the district’s reserves to the levels that they should be. Delaney said healthy reserves will put the district in the position to buy adjacent properties for Rowe to expand its play space for both its students and the community. “We will have the money set aside to do so when the land is available,” Delaney said. [Purchasing adjacent land] was part of the approval of the bond measure.”

JURY continued from page 3

the school and chose to develop a case with her family using things that the jury has rejected, as a way of criticizing the school, Lavin said. “We had to stand up in court and defend ourselves against one of our own clients, never a good day for the school. But we had to do it because we have to discipline our students,” Lavin said. “Ms. Bagby was facing disciplinary problems, from the theft of beer, from distribution of beer to other students, cheating on exams, and at some point, the school has to say enough is enough.” Bagby said she was happy that she got her day in court. “I’m just happy that I got to share my side of the story,” she said. “And I just hope that other kids that this is happening to will have the courage to speak up, as well.” Her attorney, Joane Garcia-Colson said the case was a victory because the jury found LJCD negligent, even though it did not award any monetary damages. Bagby had asked for $1 million. “If this bullying epidemic sweeping the country

is going to be stopped, people like Desiree have to stand up and have to speak out,” the attorney said. “And the more people who do that, maybe schools will make some changes to protect our kids.” Bagby testified that she found slurs and a penis sketched on her car. She also alleged a student nearly ran her down in a school parking lot; that she was threatened via the Internet; and that someone put a dead rat in her locker. Lavin said it turned out to be mouse. Attorney John Collins, representing the school, told jurors in his closing argument on Monday that the lawsuit was a “misuse” of the justice system and was filed to get back at the school. “They (school administrators) followed protocol to the letter,” Collins said. He told jurors that the girl’s father told his daughter’s adviser at La Jolla Country Day that his goal in filing the lawsuit was to drag the school through the mud. Collins said most of the witnesses in the trial contradicted Desiree Bagby’s testimony that she was bullied and that the school didn’t do enough about it. Bagby was suspended for five days for stealing

beer and drinking during a school-sponsored trip to Ecuador and yelling an obscenity at a heckler during a school soccer game, according to court testimony. A recommendation to expel Bagby was overturned, but she was ultimately asked to withdraw from the school, which she did. Bagby claimed she did not get a re-enrollment contract for her junior year, but Collins said the school principal sent one to her home a day after he was told she did not get one. Garcia-Colson told the jury that the school wanted to make an example out of her. The attorney said Babgy was humiliated when her soccer coach suspended her for missing a game. By not notifying the Bagbys that their daughter wasn’t getting a contract to re-enroll at the school, ad-

ministrators “broke their own rules” and “betrayed” Bagby, her attorney argued. According to GarciaColson, school officials failed to discipline three girls who admitted defacing Bagby’s car. The girls told school administrators they did so after she wrote on their cars, but that no one asked Bagby for her side of the story because she was the “bad girl from Ecuador,” according to Garcia-Colson. Administrators concluded that Bagby, also a member of the cheer team, was a “bad child” and “they needed to get rid of her,” the attorney said. Bagby, who wants to be a child-advocate attorney, said she plans to resume her college career at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

Toastmasters’ Northern Division speech contest to be held May 7 in RSF The Northern Division Toastmasters Speech Contest is set for May 7 from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. at the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center. Rancho Santa Fe Vice President of Education Muffy Walker will be a contestant in the Table Topics portion of the contest, where she will be judged on her answer to an impromptu question. Toastmasters speech contests have three main purposes: 1. To provide an opportunity for proficient speakers and those Toastmasters who are interested in competitive speaking to gain contest experience. 2. To provide an interesting educational program for Toastmasters and the general public (contests can create a community awareness of the opportunities in the Toastmasters program). 3. To provide an opportunity to those Toastmasters who are not participating in the the contest to learn by observing proficient speakers. They are also a great way to meet other Toastmasters outside of your club, to see the “bigger” picture and scope of Toastmasters, and above all — have fun! Each of these contests begins with competitions at the club level. Club winners compete at the local Area Contest. Area Contest winners compete at the local Division Contests. Division Contest winners compete at the District Conference. District International and Humorous Speech contest winners compete at the Regional Conference. Winners of the regional International Speech Contest go on to represent the region at the International level. Please come join us at this event! Admission is $5 and there will be opportunity drawings for many wonderful prizes. Want to get involved in the Rancho Santa Fe Toastmasters? The club meets every Tuesday at the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center from 5:306:30 p.m. Contact Paul Brown at for more information.

BUDGET continued from page 1

prices and other factors. (An acre-foot is about 325,000 gallons of water.) Factors such as budget cuts, increases in the cost of imported water and availability of less-expensive local water will all figure in when the board sets 2012 rates for water district customers. In December, the board raised water rates by 12 percent for 2011, and also approved increases of up to 12 percent for each of the next two years. At the time, the district cited the increasing costs of imported water as a key reason for the increase. A final decision on next year’s rates will be made in November, at a time when the district knows for certain how much the water authority’s rates will rise, said General Manager Michael Bardin. The board’s decision on next year’s rates will also affect how much money is available for capital improvements, such as replacing aging water pipes and other equipment. For the coming budget year, the district plans to carry over $7 million worth of projects from this year, as well as undertake $5.5 million in new projects. Some board members

said they are concerned the district is not setting aside enough money to pay for replacing worn-out infrastructure. “We’ve got a lot of 50-year-old pipe in the ground,” said director Robert “Bud” Irvin, who participated in the meeting by phone because he was out of state. Director Ken Dunford said he also believes the district is underfunding its capital improvement program. “If we’re going to maintain this system we’ve got to step up to the plate,” he said. The $520,000 in cuts to the operating budget includes not filling three currently vacant positions: a water conservation technician and two utility workers. In addition, the district will cut water conservation programs, employees will contribute more to their retirement fund and some preventive maintenance projects will be deferred, according to a staff report. Board members are also looking at potential savings in the cost of retiree benefits. They have asked staff to research how much the district would save if it established lower pension benefits for new hires, and also if the district could save money by changing providers for retiree health benefits.

Board member Andy Menshek suggested that the board opt out of a $311,000 payment into a trust fund for future retiree health benefits while the issue is being studied. Other board members agreed. Directors may make an initial decision next month on rate increases for 2012, although that decision could be altered later in the year. District revenue increases by $190,000 for each 1 percent increase in water rates charged to customers. The staff report included both worst- and best-case budget scenarios. If the county water authority raises rates by 18 percent, the district can meet only about one-third of its needs from local water supplies and the full 12-percent hike is imposed on ratepayers next year, the district’s operating budget would be short by $509,000, with the difference being made up from reserves. Under the best-case scenario included in the report, the water authority raises rates by 9 percent, the district meets half its needs from local water, Santa Fe customers receive no rate increase next year, and the district has a $130,000 surplus in its operating budget, which can be put back into reserves.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

SURVEY continued from page 1

Booth said the results were a very good representation of the entire community and one of the most exciting news findings was that 86 percent said that the level of service the Association is providing is just right—one person even jotted down that Manager Pete Smith is a “rock star.” The survey listed six local issues and asked respondents to prioritize how much emphasis and importance the Association should place on them. Coming out on top as the highest priority was preserving Rancho Santa Fe’s character, with 61 percent of those surveyed saying that was most important. Maintaining the RSF Patrol came second with 45 percent. Ensuring that traffic and speed are controlled in the Covenant received 40 percent, followed by improving infrastructure for high-speed Internet at 30 percent. Undergrounding utilities and preserving the open space program came in at the bottom, with 31 percent and 19 percent respectively. The results spoke the loudest on the issue of the Association providing finan-

cial support to not-for-profit organizations, such as the Garden Club, Community Center, Senior Center and others. Of those surveyed, 48 percent said that the Association should not lend financial support to community not-for-profit organizations, the strongest opposition vote in the entire survey. The results are telling for the Association, which has held off on providing support to local organizations until the survey’s results were in, said director Deb Plummer. High-speed Internet At the end of the survey, respondents were invited to provide overall comments and Booth said that the issue of high-speed Internet garnered the highest number of comments. “Almost all people have Internet but almost half are not satisfied with the speed,” Booth said. “The lack of high-speed Internet is perceived by some as a barrier for property values.” When comparing answers with demographics, Booth said that high-speed Internet was most important for people who had children at home and had lived in Rancho Santa Fe for less than 10 years. It was less important for people who had

lived in Rancho Santa Fe longer than 10 years. The survey also questioned whether the Association should pursue e-mail communication with residents, something it has considered doing in the past. Sixty-seven percent of respondents said it was a good idea and when asked what they would like to receive via email, 90 percent said urgent communications, 84 percent said general communication and 54 percent would like to see their Association bills in their inbox. Art Jury Responses regarding the Art Jury were overall more positive than negative. Overall, 52 percent of respondents find that the Art Jury applies its rules and policies in a “somewhat reasonable” process and 16 percent found it “very reasonable.” Of those with actual dealings with the Art Jury, the numbers shifted. Forty percent of respondents have had a project reviewed in the last five years and of those people, 38 percent said that they did not find the process reasonable. Those that did not like their experience with the Art Jury tended to be newer and younger residents: 82 percent of residents over age 75 said that the Art Jury process was reasonable, while 37 percent of those younger than age 54 found the Art Jury process unreasonable. Additionally, 46 percent of people with properties worth more than $5 million said they found the Art Jury unreasonable. Why move to the Ranch? The survey found that the key factor in the decision to purchase a home in the Covenant was the rural nature of the community, with 76 percent saying it was the biggest draw. Fifty-seven percent said that the key factor was privacy and security; and the school district and historical character of the community drew 42 percent each. Others: The golf club, 39 percent; sense of community, 30 percent; extensive trail system, 26 percent; and its equestrian friendliness, 22 percent. The rural nature of the community was most important to respondents 75 years old and above, and security was most important to those with properties over $5 million.



Undergrounding utilities The survey found that three-quarters of residents want the Association to provide some financial assistance for utility pole undergrounding projects. Most respondents saw utility poles as an aesthetic blight and wanted to see them go under to help preserve the rural character of the community. Thirty-nine percent somewhat agreed that the Association should provide assistance, and 36 percent strongly agreed. Those with more expensive homes were more likely to strongly agree. Open space Of the six issues provided, preserving the Association’s open space program was the lowest priority. Of the 14 cents of every $100 of assessed property value paid to the Association, 3 cents goes into the open space fund. While open space was ranked the lowest priority, the majority of respondents said it is still important for the Association to buy available properties—39 percent said somewhat important and 29 percent responded very important. Open space was slightly more important to people who have lived in the Ranch for more than 10 years. Importance decreased as property value increased: 33 percent of those with properties valued under $2 million found open space important, compared to 27 percent of those with $2-5 million properties, and 22 percent for those with properties valued at more than $5 million.

Coming up at RSF Garden Club: garden tour, plant sale, cooking classes By Ginger Bord On Saturday, May 7, there will be trolleys, yes trolleys, traveling throughout the Ranch depositing people at designated homes where they will enjoy music, spring and beautiful gardens. The “Rambling The Ranch Garden Tour” will begin at 10 a.m. at The Garden Club but the other event for the day will be The Open Air Market and Plant Sale. The Open Air Market will be open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, is open to the public and is free. Fortyplus artisans will be showcasing creative ideas, gifts, crafts and arts while purveyors of fresh food will be serving up plates of delicious fare for your enjoyment. The Plant Sale will provide a variety of plants for sale from succulents to disease resistant eucalyptus trees. Plant sales have been a tradition of the Garden Club since the beginning of the club. Early settlers in the Ranch would start new plants from the plant material found on their properties, then they would have

an advertised plant sale and the monies from the sale went towards the building fund. Current Garden Club members have been cultivating new plants for the 2011 Plant Sale since the first of the year so there will be a large assortment of plants and reasonable prices. Also, volunteers will be available to help with questions and advice for the buyer as to planting conditions. The Garden Club is excited to offer a series of cooking classes, in the club kitchen, with Chef Mary Platis. An introduction “Culinary Open House with Chef Mary Platis” will be on Tuesday, May 3, at 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. and you can register for this special demonstration at .

The Birds, the Bees, and Blended Families How to Fall Out of Love (Part Two) By Diana Weiss-Wisdom, Ph.D. Most of us have had the experience of loving someone who didn’t reciprocate our ardent desires. How long did you keep the candle burning in your window? Sometimes it’s just a matter of time before the wax runs out or a breeze blows the candle out, or you meet someone new who takes your mind off the sputtering flame. But what to do when your mind won’t let go and you are stuck in the merciless merry go round of ‘what if’, ‘why not’ or ‘remember when.’ The previous column was addressed to a woman who didn’t understand why her boyfriend of several years had stopped returning her calls, emails, and texts. It’s hard to get over a relationship when you don’t understand why it ended. On the other hand, when people treat you badly, it should make it easier. When a person continues to pine over someone who doesn’t reciprocate their love and/or has treated them poorly, it’s time to look within rather than outward. They may have a repetition compulsion going on. What is a repetition compulsion? It is a tendency to be drawn toward a situation or person that is reminiscent of a trauma or loss in one’s past. For example, someone who often felt emotionally abandoned as a child may be unconsciously attracted to people who become close and then suddenly detach and leave. The repetition compulsion can be an instinct to go ‘home’, to return to the familiar. It can also involve an unconscious reactivation of old attachment inju-

ries in an effort to gain mastery over them or heal them. For instance, a child who experienced unpredictable moodiness or criticism from a parent may have felt it as an intermittent emotional abandonment. In response, Dr. Diana Weiss-Wisdom they developed a pattern of compulsively trying to please in an effort to get love and avoid abandonment. As an adult, they might seek out a partner who tends to be on the cool and critical side and then do everything possible to win their love and approval. When it doesn’t work, they may feel that they are unlovable, and then repeat the same cycle of over the top trying to please to get their basic relationship needs met. If you are having a hard time falling out of love with someone who does not reciprocate your feelings, you may have a repetition compulsion going on. Some suggestions: We don’t fall in love in a day. We shouldn’t expect ourselves to fall out of love in a day. It’s normal for it to take time for your feelings to fade. Trust that they will. •Thought Stopping: This is a technique in which you make yourself stop thinking about the person and redirect your thoughts to a different topic that is pleasant or more realistic.

•Journal: Write about your feelings with an eye toward noticing any repetitive patterns in your relationships; Write a list of the qualities that describe your ideal partner. Describe the type of person that your ideal partner would be attracted to. Are you capable of being that person? If so, work on cultivating those qualities in yourself…being the person that your true ideal partner would be looking for. Spend time imaging your next relationship being all that you want it to be and get ready for it. Believe in yourself and positive possibilities. •Get out of your own head by socializing and focusing on other people. Be open to meeting new people. •Don’t give up. There are many fish in the sea. And given one wish, most people would wish to love and to be loved Diana Weiss-Wisdom, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist, psy#12476, in Rancho Santa Fe. She specializes in pre-marital counseling, marriage/couples counseling, stepfamily counseling, and couples workshops. (858) 259-0146.

BY KIRBY BROOKS Contributor What’s a quilter to do when her family and friends have all the quilts they need? In the case of Jeffree Itrich, a UCSD communications specialist with the Department of Neurosciences’ Alzheimer’s Disease Cooperative Study, you use the quilts for a good cause. Itrich, who lost her mother to severe dementia, set out to create a quilt donation program for the patients in the Alzheimer’s study in January 2010. By that September, when news of the donation program appeared in the AARP Bulletin, Itrich had received 100 or so quilts. The AARP interviewer (a quilter with whom Itrich formed a fast friendship) warned Itrich that her life would change after the article published, and change it did. “The first day after the AARP piece, I received 40 e-mails. I recruited a part-time student and part-time administrative worker in addition to another full-time employee to help me process all the calls and emails, and I eventually handed that part of the project over to them,” Itrich said. Although the momentum has since slowed, the project’s e-mail address still receives daily messages. “It goes in waves, but we get 10-20 quilts a week on average,” Itrich said, before looking into her database to find out the exact number. As of April 12, 2011: 820 quilts were donated for the patients in the study (a collaboration between UCSD and the National Institute on Aging). Itrich unearths a folder bursting with letters from quilters and patients alike. Leafing through the stack, she pulls out a four-page letter from a quilter and several notes from study participants’ family members. (Some of the quilts come with labels on them and Itrich keeps a detailed log so recipients can communicate their gratitude if they wish.) She doesn’t know who gets the quilts — their information is protected by HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) — but the project has sparked communication between those coping with Alzheimer’s. “As a quilter, I know what quilts do for people. A quilt is like a hug,” said Itrich, adding that many of the quilters have been holding onto grief from experiencing Alzheimer’s in their family’s own lives. “In many cases, they have been grieving for years. By quilting to cheer up participants of Alzheimer’s research studies around the country, they can be a small part of the cure. Participating is kind of a catharsis for them.” Itrich said that the quilts also give people a way to express their appreciation to those participating in the study, which requires a neurosurgical procedure. Doctors open the brain to deliver nerve growth factor directly into the portion of brain affected by Alzheimer’s disease. (Read more details at “When I first brought up the donation program to the research study’s director,

Jeffree (her parents were expecting a third son) Itrich in her office surrounded by quilts ready to be sent to patients in the Alzheimer’s study. she thought I lost my mind! ‘Where would you get all of the quilts?’ she asked. But I know how generous quilters are.” In the beginning, she tried to limit the donations to traditional quilts, but has since abandoned that rule. Her office is

packed with quilts of all shapes, sizes and colors, ranging from hand-stitched and hand-tied to machine-stitched quilts. “Alzheimer’s clinics are notoriously cold. The need for quilts wanes in the summer months and picks back up again once temperatures cool down,” she said. Since both women and men participate in the study, she makes sure there are quilts featuring golf memorabilia, Mack trucks, John Deere tractors, musical notes, and even outer space images! When will there be enough quilts? According to Itrich, only when there is a cure for Alzheimer’s. “The quilts comfort in ways we can’t imagine and the research will continue until the disease can be stopped or reversed,” she said, before handing her assistant another batch of vibrantly colored quilts to brighten the lives of participants involved in the study.

Protecting yourself from scams BY TERRIE LITWIN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR It is estimated that there are 1,000,000 cases of older adult financial fraud and exploitation in the U.S. each year, with only one in four cases actually reTerrie Litwin ported. Seniors average one “scam type” letter and two telemarketing calls each week. Considering the increasing numbers of seniors and the growing number of scams, the potential for abuse is staggering. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, se-

niors are often targeted for fraud for several reasons. Older Americans are more likely to have a “nest egg,” own their home, or have an excellent credit rating. Scam artists focus their efforts on the group of people most likely to be in a position to purchase something. Another factor making seniors an attractive target is that they are less likely to report a suspected fraud either because they do not know where to report it or because they are embarrassed to have been taken advantage of. Also, older adults are less likely to remember details of interactions and may not be able to supply enough information to authorities to assist with identifying and prosecuting the perpetrator. Complicating this is

the fact that often, victims do not know for weeks or even months that they have been victimized making remembering details more difficult. The best way to avoid becoming a victim of fraud is to be alert to potential crimes so that you can learn how to protect yourself. Please join us at the Senior Center on Wednesday, May 4th at 2:00pm for “Shams, Scams & Schemes”, presented by Henry Tirado, Crime Prevention Specialist with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. Mr. Tirado will also discuss a new program offered in collaboration with other community organizations called “Take Me Home.” Individuals who have memory issues or medical conditions are sometimes reported to law enforcement as missing and / or “at risk.” The Take Me Home Program

It’s the menu and music that makes Zel’s Del Mar a hometown favorite BY KELLEY CARLSON or an evening of food, drink and live music, take note of Zel’s Del Mar. Owners Greg Glassman and Jennifer Powers opened this coastal restaurant/bar in summer 2009, named after Glassman’s grandfather Zel Camiel, a Polish immigrant who was well-known in the Del Mar community and held the title of “unofficial mayor.” “Our vision was to create a neighborhood eatery where friends and family feel welcome and relaxed,” Glassman said in a news release. Entertainment is offered Thursday through Saturday nights, from acoustic jazz and blues to up-andcoming singers/songwriters. Most performances start around 7:30 p.m. in the bar. Guests can listen to the tunes from anywhere in Zel’s — the main dining area and patio are both adjacent to the bar. The main dining area is covered, yet well-ventilated; large windows allow for people-watching along Camino del Mar. On the dog-friendly, open-air patio, customers can enjoy the views as a fire pit crackles in the center. In the warm-hued, softly lit bar, patrons can sit on the bar stools or choose from several tables and watch TV. A full menu is served in all areas

The Fish Trio appetizer features house-made chips, sea bass ceviche, ahi poke and smoked salmon tartare.

Happy Hour at Zel’s Del Mar is a popular place.


On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at Click ‘Food’ or ‘On The Menu.’ ■ This week: Zel’s Breakfast Flatbread of the restaurant. Patrons can start with an appetizer such as the Fish Trio (ahi poke, smoked salmon tartare and ceviche) or Fried Calamari, or select from several types of salads. Zel’s specializes in flatbreads, and there are a handful of house-made flatbread pizzas from which to choose, including Grilled Chicken, Eggplant and Margherita. Entrees range from the Brandt Beef Bar Burger to Pan Roasted Atlantic Salmon. Powers cites the burger and flatbreads as her favorite dishes; Glassman leans toward the fresh fish entrees. Children’s menus are also available. For dessert, there are choices, such as a White Chocolate Bread Pudding with Bourbon Caramel Sauce. Zel’s has a full bar, including about 30 bottles of wine and a

selection of craft beers picked by Glassman. One of the brews on tap is Sculpin, which Glassman said is difficult to find in the area. Specials are available several nights each week: burger and a beer are $10 on Mondays; “Flat Tuesdays” offer half-price on all flatbreads; and bottles of wine are half-price on Wednesdays. Happy hour runs from 4 to 6:30 p.m. daily. For guests who prefer to dine earlier in the day, Zel’s opens its doors from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the weekends, serving breakfast and lunch. Hours will change beginning Memorial Day weekend, as the eatery will be open daily for lunch. Zel’s will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to close on weekdays, and from 8:30 a.m. to close on weekends. Glassman said reservations are recommended, especially during weekend nights and in the summer — the restaurant can accommodate up to 80 people. However, reservations are not needed in the bar. To have a great experience, Glassman suggests “coming in and having a great dinner, hang on to hear live music at a place within walking distance to the ocean, and have a few nice cocktails or a bottle of wine.”

Six soloists to star in Bach’s ‘The Passion According to St. Matthew’ BY JENNA JAY Contributor Two orchestras, adult and children choruses, plus vocal and instrumental soloists will all be part of the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus’ Saturday and Sunday performances of J.S. Bach’s “The Passion According to St. Matthew.” The colossal event is a timely performance for the Easter season, as the piece is based on the Biblical story of the Last Supper and Jesus’ crucifixion as taken from the Book of Matthew, Chapters 26-27. Notable soloists joining the LJS&C for the concert include Jon Lee Keenan as the “Evangelist,” along with soprano Angela Cadelago, mezzo-soprano Janelle DeStefano, tenor Benjamin Bliss, baritone Gregorio Gonzalez, bass Abdiel Gonzalez, and The North Coast Singers children’s choir. “This is a really big concert,” said LJS&C choral director David Chase. “ ‘Saint Matthew Passion’ is not performed very often in San Diego County because it’s such a large piece — the largest single work that Bach ever composed — and it was arguably his favorite.” The masterwork was first performed on Good Friday in 1727 at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, Germany where Bach was cantor. The LJS&C and guests have been preparing their version since January 2011. “To do a piece like this is kind of like being in

It’s like putting all the pieces of the puzzle in separately for the two-anda-half hourproduction. “Because it’s so dramatic, because it’s almost like an opera, we’re going to keep the lights out and give the audience supertitles to follow the whole thing. It should flow very much like a movie or an opera.

“It’s simply fantastic music … it’s gorgeous and beautiful music … it has an amazing flow of drama from beginning to end. I hope that’s what audiences go home with, as well as the inviting love of Johann Sebastian Bach.”

Choral director David Chase leads the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus.

Firefighters promote safe teen driving through triathlon

Easter at the Village Church Nursery School The children at the Village Nursery School had a week of Easter celebrations. On Monday and Tuesday the Parent Connection Board sponsored a visit from “Mad Scientist” who delighted the children with a variety of science experiments presented in an educational and humorous way. The next two days were filled with individual classroom family gatherings, and egg hunts all over the church campus. The children were so excited to hunt for eggs and “show off” what they found. This was a great way to begin Easter vacation week which started on Good Friday. The Village Church Nursery School prides itself creating strong relationships with their families.

BreAnna ‘Breezy’ Woody died in a car accident last year. She was 17. fighting community is honoring Breezy’s legacy by raising money to help bring awareness to the issue of teen driving safety in hopes of reducing, and even preventing, the number of teen deaths in San Diego County,” Woody said. “This is such an important issue that affects us all because we all share the roadways,” added Carmel Valley resident Zachary Oneil, one of the firefighters who will be competing this summer. “All of us firefighters have a strong drive for community service, and this is one more way for us to serve the community.” The community can

now support the firefighters by pledging money to their effort by making donations at Race4Breezy. org. The team, which is also sponsored by the CWO3 Shawn Harrison Foundation and Lattice Inc., hopes to raise at least $25,000 before the June 5 triathlon, an extremely challenging course that includes a 1.5-mile swim through frigid waters near Alcatraz, an 18-mile bike ride through San Francisco’s hills, and an 8-mile run through rugged trails and up a cliff. “It’s going to be real challenge and, in fact, this is will be my first event of this distance,” Oneil said and then added,” but I can’t think of a better cause to do this for.” If you would like to help by pledging money to the firefighters team, please visit Race4Breezy. org.

BY MARLENA CHAVIRAMEDFORD Staff Writer Drivers ages 16 to 19 are four times more likely to die behind the wheel than their older counterparts and, in fact, car accidents are the leading cause of death among teens, according to data from the Center for Disease Control. The statistic is sobering, and one that emergency first-responders know all too well. And for retired San Diego firefighter Mark Woody it’s an epidemic that hit especially close to home. His 17-year-old daughter BreAnna was killed in a car accident last year. Woody and a team of other local firefighters will honor BreAnna, or Breezy as she was known by many, this summer by competing in the 2011 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon in an effort to help curb the deadly trend among U.S. teens. A 10-member crew from the San Diego Firefighters’ Endurance Sports Team will compete to raise money for the Trauma Research and Education Foundation, which funds education campaigns about the importance of safe driving. “My family and I are so grateful that the fire-

RSF resident recognized for ‘Feed the Troops Food Drive’ Deana Carter, a RSF resident and founder of Women Benefiting the Community, a charitable 501(c)(3), was recognized at the Marine Corp Recruit Depot for her annual Feed the Troops Food Drive. This month-long event takes place each year before Thanksgiving and is instrumental in ensuring that service men and women and their families do not go without during the holiday season. Colonel Stephanie Smith was effusive in her praise of Carter’s efforts, “Our young men and women are proud to serve this country and Colonel Stephanie Smith and Deana Carter are shy about taking charity. The way Ms. Carter sets it up it is more like shopping in a store and being able to choose what you want and need.” “Through assistance of local businesses grocery gift cards and non-perishable food items were donated as well as a truck load of frozen turkeys.” Carter said. “People are excited to help our troops and are very supportive. Many businesses put baskets together that include everything a family would need to have a complete Thanksgiving dinner, all the way down to cat and dog treats if needed.” If you would like to participate in the 2011 Feed the Troops Food Drive, please contact Deana Carter at 858-756-1566 or

Daniel Carey and Max McKelliget, both in third grade, dissected a clam.

Fourth-graders Aiden Borts, Zachary Brumm and Alexandra Youel studied different fish and plants from the kelp forest.

Your Family Matters: Teaching kids to care BY DR. KEITH KANNER “Kids are not born automatically caring” As strange as it may seem, children are not born automatically to care about others. In fact, because humans are the only form of animal that is fully dependent on their caregivers at birth, it is only after a child takes in what it means to be cared for from the outside, that they can return the favor later in their lives. Children who do not receive enough early caring, both physically and psychologically, never even develop this capacity and remain self-centered for their lifetime unless they Dr. Keith Kanner figure out that something really went wrong in the early years of their lives and dedicate themselves to “fixing” what was never there. For those who did receive the early nurturing fuel from their parents, they develop the capacity to care for others. But, even these children who have what it takes to care for others, must be led by adults who believe caring for others is an important virtue. “Kids must be taught to care by both watching and being encouraged to do so” Learning is almost always done by observing or listening to others. Children who have not been led, never become leaders themselves. Each person has a certain amount of what is takes to become a giver, but depending upon their environment, the end result will either be actualized or never utilized. Children are normally not able to “put themselves in the minds of others” before five years of age due to both neurological and developmental milestones, and even then, the process is gradual and varies in the depth of understanding the lives of others. Only until adolescence can a child utilize abstract reasoning which allows them to look ahead and in the past allowing for the considering of a life outside of theirs. But, what really shapes, and enhances the process of giving to others, is the influence of important people in the child’s life encouraging the process and leading the child into the rewards of giving that

these adults have experienced as well. “Kids caring together in groups with families strengthens the function” The earlier a child is encouraged, the greater giving to others will become a life-long process. But, aside from the importance of watching their families give, is the experience of their peers giving as well, and this is just as important as the influence of one’s family. We all know how peers in a child’s life become increasingly influential over time and how sometimes the influence of a peer will temporarily replace the parental position as a child needs to separate from mom and dad in order to be their own person and uses their peers to do so. However, if one’s peers are similar in character to one’s parents, then the child may not need to differentiate as much to feel independent. In other words, kids who pick kids who have similar characteristics as one’s parents often keep certain values consistent over time. “Adults and Kids who care are considered healthy, whereas those who don’t are not” Caring for someone other than just yourself is a sign of a healthy person. In fact, the more a person is aware of another, the deeper and closer relationships can become. People who volunteer for example demonstrate more of the trait of altruism than people who don’t. People who help other people also feel better about themselves. Caring for others is truly a win-win but many never experience this part of life and they miss out on the opportunity to do something both personally rewards yet also helpful to others. Given currents conditions of a struggling economy more people suffering than ever before. The time is greater than ever to encourage people to care both about themselves but to care for others as well.

Kids Korps USA’s Super Star Gala 2011

Essay contest winners: L-R: Cole Gonzales of Mission Estancia School, Ravi Patel of The Rhodes School, Jessica McRoskey of Nativity School and Spencer Whitney of St. James School.

De Anza DAR awards $400 to contest winners Checks for $100, bronze medals and embossed 8”x10” certificates were presented to the four chapter winners at the February 2011 American History Essay Contest Awards Ceremony and Colonial Tea. The winners were 5th grader Cole Gonzales of Mission Estancia School; Spencer Whitney of St. James Academy, 6th grade; Jessica McRoskey, Nativity School, 7th grade; and Ravi Patel, The Rhodes School, 8th grade. Eight schools furnished 158 participants, an increase in participation over the previous contest. There were 20 chapter winners and 44 classroom winners, placing 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and two Honorable Mentions. Non-winners received certificates of participation. In March, De Anza Chapter received 1st place among chapters of its size at the California State Society DAR State Conference for its American History Essay Contest. Debbie Giese and Kathleen Loftman of Rancho Santa Fe and Joanne Dudek of Fairbanks Ranch were co-chairs. Co-chairs for the 2011-2012 contest will be Joanne Dudek, Kathy Loftman and Martha Gresham of Cardiff. The title for this fall’s contest will be “Young America Takes a Stand: The War of

1812.” Contestants will pretend they had a friend who became famous for standing up for America during the War of 1812. They will describe what he or she did and explain why it is important to honor such heroes when we celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the War of 1812. The rationale is to show students that heroes who stood up for America during the War of 1812 are as important today as they were then. They had a positive impact on American history. Writing the essays will make history come alive as the students imagine that they are personally involved in the past. The annual contest helps the DAR achieve its goals of historic preservation, education and patriotism. The information package for this contest is now available on the chapter website, shown below. De Anza anticipates an increased participation this year. For more information, contact Joanne Dudek at or visit:

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS Highlands Jewelers celebrates the charms of San Diego Fix Me Fitness now open in Del Mar

By Marlena Chavira-Medford Staff Writer After more than three decades here, Highlands Jewelers owner Victor Manoushakian has come see the charms of San Diego — figuratively and literally speaking. Living in this community has inspired the master craftsman to create a series of charms that pay homage to the area. “I’ve been a resident for 32 years, and I wanted to give back to the community as an artist,” he said. “For me, making jewelry is a passion. This creation is my way of saying ‘thank you’ to the community.” The sterling silver jewelry pieces are all crafted on sight, and each read “San Diego,” “La Jolla” or “Del Mar” and depict a palm tree or dolphin. The pieces can be worn as a charm for a bracelet or pendant for a necklace. They can also be engraved, which make for a great way to commemorate a special occasion, Manoushakian said. “These would make great keepsakes from a special trip here. After all, you can only buy so many shirts and mugs,” he said. Manoushakian, who also sits on the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board, has a broad spectrum of experience in all metals, diamonds, precious stones and gemstones, with an emphasis on custom jewelry design and repair. Manoushakian does all the work himself and on-sight, which is highly rare today. “I’m an old-fashioned, hands-on jeweler,” said Manoushakian, who knows many of his customers on a firstname basis. His classic approach to customer service has earned him a loyal following and, in fact, some families have been coming to Highlands Jewelers for multiple generations. Manoushakian’s foundation as a jeweler was set in his homeland of Beirut, Lebanon, where his uncles were all

master jewelers. His apprenticeship in the industry began when he was 14 and continued until 1973 when he moved to Canada to attend a jewelry-making school. In 1975 he began work in one of the world’s largest jewelry stores, “Birks Jewellers” in Montreal, Canada. Several years later, he moved to the U.S. and passed the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) Diamond Grading course, as well as the Swest Jewelry Casting Workshop. Manoushakian worked more than 12 years at Bower’s Jewelers in La Jolla before opening his own store in Carmel Valley in 1989. “This community has been very good to me, and I very much want to thank them for allowing me to be a part of it,” he said. Highlands Jewelers is located at 3830 Valley Center Drive, Suite 706. For more information, please visit or 858-481-9193.

How to sell your home or estate to the foreign market Foreign investors have both the money and desire to purchase Rancho Santa Fe properties. 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.

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 Rancho Santa Fe 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. Rancho Santa Fe real estate has long been the desired target of many wealthy foreign investors. But with the falling dollar, Rancho Santa Fe real estate has now become a screaming bargain to foreign investors around the world.

Computers and you: Back it up BY MARK DAUGHTERS, INTERLACED SAN DIEGO INC. Computers are amazing. Think of how much stuff is in your computer right now. Thousands of pictures, music tracks, videos, contacts, calendars, documents, spreadsheets, emails, and probably, a lot more. To store that in the physical world would fill a ton of photo albums, rolodexes, CD/DVD shelves, and file cabinets. A lot of my clients have a hard time letting go of those physical hard copies. To them it is scary to shrink all of this data into a box the size of a notepad, and toss the “real thing.� They take comfort that they can actually feel and know that their memories are safe, just by seeing that the file cabinet, or photo album is there. And they have a point. Without the proper steps, your data can randomly disappear in the blink of an eye. Your computer contains a small part called the hard drive. On laptops it is smaller than a deck of cards. This tiny thing holds everything. Inside there is a disk that spins around and a small needle moves around to read the data. These work magnetically, not using grooves, like a record player, but the idea is the same. Since this is a mechanical part, at some point it will fail. Let me restate that. Every hard drive, ever built, in any device, Mac, PC, desktop, laptop, iPod, will fail. Even the newer computers with the “solid state drives� or SSD (Techno speak for “no moving parts.�) are not infallible. They have a limited amount of times data can be written or read from. When this happens (not if), all the data on the drive will be inaccessible. Stop printing out everything in a panic. You can stop this data Armageddon from happening, and it is quite easy. All you need is a copy of your data in another place. These days there are plenty of ways to accomplish this with minimal effort on your part. With every Mac sold today, Time Machine is included. Time Machine is the easiest, and most powerful way to backup your data. All it requires is an external hard drive. (Around $100.) Once it is set up, your Mac will backup every hour. It is smart; it only backs up what has changed from the last backed up. It is fast; after the first backup, it only takes a few minutes. And it is easy to use. If

PATRICK J. PARK, CEO - 619.813.8233 CA DRE #00619359

your computer’s hard drive dies, when your Mac is repaired or replaced, it asks if you have a time machine backup. Just plug in your drive and in an hour or so your computer looks exactly like it did the last time it backed up. It’s that easy. There are other options as well. You can get a wireless version of the external drive so you don’t need to keep your computer plugged into the backup at all times. There are backup utilities that work for PCs or older Macs, as well as off-site backup solutions that provide an extra layer of security. For instance, If your home is robbed or is burned down, your computer and it’s backup might be gone. An off-site backup will ensure your data is safe. Once you find a setup that works for you and your precious data, you can start living the good, “clutter free� life, like myself. Personally, I hate having hard copies of things. As often as I can, I scan in receipts, buy digital music from the web, and only take digital photos and almost never print them out. I am able to keep anything I could ever need at an arms reach at any time. Need a receipt for that gizmo I bought? It’s on my phone. Want to see a picture of where I proposed to my fiancee in Alaska? Right here on my laptop. Need a phone number of a friend of mine? Not a problem. Do I fear for my data with this lifestyle? No, because I’ve taken steps to prepare for the inevitable. You should too.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Top ranking for K. Ann Brizolis K. Ann Brizolis, a respected leader in the sale of fine homes and estate properties, was ranked number one out of all real estate agents throughout San Diego County for sales volume during the first quarter of 2011. The K. Ann Brizolis data was based on a county-wide ranking performed by the Multiple Listing Service, which is subscribed to by all real estate agencies. Brizolis, who recently celebrated her 22nd year in real estate, is widely regarded as an expert in the purchase and sale of residential properties throughout Rancho Santa Fe and the surrounding coastal communities. A California Real Estate Broker, Brizolis has leveraged her business sense and real estate market knowledge to earn numerous professional distinctions and sales awards. She graduated from California State Polytechnic University with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing, and is currently serving as a director of Prudential’s Luxury Division. “Real estate has always been a dynamic industry, but the past few years have been particularly challenging and eventful,” says

Brizolis, who is based in Prudential California Realty’s Rancho Santa Fe office. “I am especially grateful to be working with such a dedicated team of associates. Their commitment to excellence and ongoing focus on our clients’ best interests has been the cornerstone of our success. The resources and support provided to us by Prudential have also been a key factor to our success, enabling us to facilitate the objectives of our clients, regardless of market conditions.” As a Chairman’s Circle Diamond award winner for six consecutive years, Brizolis has constantly ranked in the top half of 1 percent of more than 54,000 Prudential agents nationwide. The achievement, which is the company’s highest honor, is an indication of her strength and passion for real estate, as well as the tenacity she applies to every transaction. “Ann’s unsurpassed work ethic and business sense have made her one of California’s most recognized and successful agents for the majority of her career,” says Herb Josepher, manager of Prudential’s Rancho Santa Fe offices. “Her outstanding reputation is built on her ability to anticipate the direction of the real estate market, personal integrity and focus on client satisfaction.” K. Ann Brizolis and Associates may be reached at 858-756-535, via email at ann@, or on the web at
