ASB accounts bring in major money for schools BY MARSHA SUTTON CONTRIBUTOR Local schools raise hundreds of thousands of Associated Student Body dollars each year, money collected from students and parents to support specific programs and school activities. Different from nonprofit education foundation money, ASB funds are used for student activities such as dances, competitions, clubs, academic teams, rallies, assemblies, yearbook and other literary publications. But often this money is insufficiently monitored. ASB funds are “the number one area for findings in an audit report,” according to School Services of California, an education advocacy organization. Because of this, SSC recommends “that district- and site-level staff receive training in this area on a regular basis to ensure that the district as well as the employees are being protected.” Eric Dill, San Dieguito Union High School District associate superintendent for business services, said the district’s indepen-

dent auditors conduct annual audits of all the schools’ ASBs, and any findings or recommendations are included in audit reports. Although auditors have had findings, Dill said it has been many years since they discovered anything significant. “They have never had any material findings that indicated funds were missing for any reason or that ever led us to suspect funds were fraudulently used or misappropriated,” he said in an email. The common themes in the findings, going back to 2003, are shortcomings in internal controls to document the flow of purchases, invoices, payments and deposits, Dill said. Audits made available by the district between 2003 and 2007 showed numerous violations, prompting the district to enact oversight and training measures. Since then, Dill said there has been only one, in 2010 at San Dieguito Academy, which found that a number of cash transmittal deposit forms were not signed. See MONEY, page 22

Saints quarterback Drew Brees comes back to RSF for fundraiser

BY KAREN BILLING STAFF WRITER For the second year in a row, the Cox Celebrity Championship will be hosted by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, benefiting the Brees Dream Foundation. Brees was in Rancho Santa Fe on March 30 to promote the May 1922 tournament, which will be held at Morgan Run Resort and Club. “Drew made an incredible difference in this event,” said Dave Miller, president of Integrated Sports Marketing, which has promoted the golf tournament for the last 13 years. “He turned it around and made it better.” Since last year’s tournament, the Super Bowl champion quarterback hasn’t had much time to work the greens. He did play in the recent Pebble Beach Pro Am, his first time on a course in eight months. He shot a 75 on the first day, even beat-

ing a tour pro, but his next outing wasn’t as successful, scoring in the 90s. Despite the up and down nature of his game, Brees still gets a thrill from playing. “I love being out on the golf course. I love the game. I’m going to play it my whole life,” he said. COX General Manager Dave Bialis called Brees a true “community man,” for

his charitable support with Brees Dream in the communities of New Orleans, West Lafayette, Ind., (where Brees played at Purdue) and San Diego, where he led the San Diego Chargers for five years. “It’s a great way for my wife Brittany and I to stay connected to this community,” Brees said of his work in See BREES, page 20

Brothers Big Sisters ‘2011 Person of the Year’ Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County (BBBS of SDC), celebrating its 50th year providing one-to-one mentoring for children facing adversities, announced recently that Rancho Santa Fe resident Linda A. Lang has been selected as the “Person of the Year.” Lang Linda Lang is chairman, CEO and president of Jack in the Box Inc. Lang will receive her award at the Big Brothers Big Sisters Annual Gourmet Dinner on Oct. 6, which will be held at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine and sponsored by LPL Financial. This year’s event emcee is Lynn Swann, NFL Hall of Famer, sports broadcaster and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America board member. Lang was named chairman and CEO of Jack in the Box Inc. in October 2005 and added the title of president in February 2010. Lang also serves on the board of The Jack in the Box Foundation, a non-profit organization that focuses the company’s charitable donations to make a difference in communities where employees, franchisees and guests of Jack in the Box® restaurants work and live. In addition, Lang serves on the board of directors for the WD-40 Company, San Diego State University’s College of Business Administration and the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation.

In 2009, former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed Lang to the California State University Board of Trustees, which is responsible for oversight of the state’s 23-university system. “We are incredibly grateful to Linda Lang and Jack in the Lynn Swan Box for its support of military families served by Big Brothers Big Sisters,” said Paul Palmer, president and CEO of BBBS San Diego County. “This event will help us raise awareness about the critical need for mentors, during a time of financial hardship and multiple deployments, which cause increased stress on families, especially felt by the children.” A longtime supporter of Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Jack in the Box Foundation recently pledged $1 million to support military mentoring programs– locally known as Operation Bigs, which was the first program of its kind in the nation that provides caring mentors to children who have a military parent deployed. The Jack in the Box Foundation’s ongoing support has helped BBBS expand the Operation Bigs program beyond the borders of its five sites on Camp Pendleton to serve Navy and other military families in four additional sites in San Diego. The Foundation has also locally supported Hispanic Mentoring, High School Bigs, and

Sports Bigs programs. “I’m honored to be recognized on behalf of The Jack in the Box Foundation’s long-term partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters,” Lang said. “Having a mentor can literally change a child’s life. We’re especially proud to support military programs that provide mentors to children with deployed parents.” Big Brothers Big Sisters Persons of Year award winners are community leaders, both in the business world and philanthropically, who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment and concern for Big Brothers Big Sisters and the cause of mentoring our community’s youth. Former Persons of the Year have included many esteemed community leaders including: A 2010 group of San Diego Leaders who founded Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego in 1961, T. Boone and Madeline Pickens, philanthropist/ entrepreneurs/advocates (2009), Rick Valencia, Founder of ProfitLine (2008), former NFL Super Bowl player, Roman Oben (2007) and James Cimino, Executive Vice President and Regional Managing Director of the Southwest Region of Wells Fargo (2006).

RSF residents’ new movie inspires at Vail Film Festival BY KAREN BILLING STAFF BOX Rancho Santa Fe residents Linda Jonason and Tamara Lafarga have begun a new adventure in life, starting a film production company called TamLin Studios. They spent March 31-April 3 in Colorado at the Vail Film Festival, promoting their first big project, “Serotonin Rising.” “Who doesn’t love that two women, at this point in their lives, can switch gears and be successful and do something good? ” said Lafarga. “It was an exhilarating weekend.” “Serotonin Rising,” directed by Tony Perri, is billed as the “world’s first truly feel good movie.” Featuring appearances by Deepak Chopra and the Dalai Lama, it features interviews from leading scientists, artists and philosophers on how altruism and acts of kindness can light up the part of the brain and produce serotonin.

terwoven throughout the documentary-style interviews is a” touching” theatrical storyline. “It did so well,” said Lafarga. “We sold out and it was standing room only. We had to turn people away for both showings.” “People were walking out asking ‘What could I do? How can I help?’ It’s so inspiring,” Jonason said. The Rancho Santa Fe

neighbors met at a screening during the development of “Serotonin Rising”— Lafarga was seeking input from Jonason on the film. “Tamara and I really hit it off, we have a lot in common,” Jonason said, who shares a real estate development background with Lafarga. Both were also interested in entertainment and performing. Jonason, as a magician, has performed in 20 different countries, including for Princess Grace and Prince Rainier of Monaco. Lafarga has done a great deal of international travel for speaking engagements. They fused their interests and backgrounds together to form TamLin. “We wanted to produce something for the betterment of mankind,” Lafarga said. “We want to send out a message on faith and family…I really think there’s a need for that kind of enter-

Lafarga said it has been a surprisingly easy transition. “I’m shocked at the amount of success we’re having,”

Clinton brings Global Initiative University to UCSD BY LYNNE FRIEDMANN Contributor “Today’s generation of young people holds more power than any generation before it to make a positive impact on the world.” These words from former President Bill Clinton are at the heart of the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U), an annual meeting designed to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world. From April 1 through 3, the fourth annual CGI U convened on the UCSD campus. “We chose UC San Diego because of its ongoing, consistent commitment to community service,” Clinton said. When he took the stage Friday night at the RIMAC Arena, the crowd —which included of nearly 1,200 students, representing 349 schools, 90 countries and all 50 states— rose to its feet as one and gave the president a thunderous, rock-star welcome. CGI U participation is through a competitive application process that includes the student’s commitment to action. Over the course of the three days, attendees network with peers and learn about innovative ideas

PHOTOS: UCSD to tackle poverty alleviation, education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, and public health. More importantly, they attend skill-building sessions that address fundraising, community engagement, partnership building, and the use of social media to market a cause. To date, CGI U has been a catalyst to over 3,000 commitments to action by college students. Innovative ideas from local students include Incentives for Opportunity by UCSD student Maclen Zilber that seeks to raise student awareness of new tax

credits for books. In partnership with UCSD bookstore, information will be printed on sales receipts and students can receive email reminders that tally eligible purchases and receive pointers on how to claim them on their tax return. The effort could save UCSD students at least $2.5 million dollars per year. Lighting Up Post-Disaster Communities is the brainchild of UCSD students Erika Jue and Maria Elisa Martinez and Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis student Lila Petersen. Moved by the aftermath of the 2010 Chilean

earthquake, this project commits to providing offgrid, solar-powered lighting for 50 families displaced by the earthquake and living in transitional shelters. When the families move to permanent housing, they will take the mobile solar panels with them; units that can be installed by a single person, quickly and easily. Their project was one of 16 selected for the CGI U Commitment Bracket Challenge, a take-off on the NCAA tournament bracket for college basketball. People from around the world were encouraged to vote online for their favorite commitment. On Saturday night, President Clinton announced the winner: The School Fund (, a website that connects people wanting to make micro-grants to individual students in developing countries in need of education funding. The effort began after Brown University student Matt Severson spent time in Tanzania, where primary school is free but secondary school fees cost upwards of $150 a year, well beyond the means of thousands of students. Severson helped one student realize his goal of at-

To date, the project has fully funded 100 secondary students at 19 schools in Tanzania, Kenya, and Haiti. The next phase seeks to recruit an additional 800 funders for 500 students and to extend funding to students in Ethiopia, India, Madagascar, Malawi, Sierra Leone, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. In lauding this and other student projects committed to education in the developing world, President Clinton remarked “A year of school adds 10 percent to earnings…for life.” Other notable program participants of this year’s CGI U included YouTube co-

founder Chad Hurley; actors and humanitarians Sean Penn, Drew Barrymore, and Mandy Moore; the president’s daughter Chelsea Clinton; California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, Qualcomm Chairman and CEO Paul E. Jacobs; UC San Diego Chancellor Marye Anne Fox; Life Technologies Chairman and CEO Greg Lucier; and Jessica O. Matthews, co-inventor of sOccket – a soccer ball that doubles as a portable energy generator for use in parts of world with little or no access to electricity. “(The goal) not just solve a problem but solve it in a fun way…and, make it become part of daily routine,” said Matthews of the product that in as little as 15 minutes of play generates enough energy to power a LED light up to three hours. CGI U concluded on Sunday morning at the San Diego Food Bank, with students worked with volunteers, and the announcement that the non-profit has been renamed Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank following major donations by auto dealer Stephen Cushman and Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs to retire the food bank’s mortgage.

Public can now submit redistricting Enter Review’s online photo contest this week plans and suggestions online The county wants to hear from you! Everything the public needs to submit redistricting plans and suggestions for San Diego County’s 2011 redistricting process is now available on the county’s redistricting website. From now until May 9, members of the public can submit their proposed plans for one or more of the county’s five supervisorial districts using the new 2010 census data. In county redistricting, a “plan” means a set of data that assigns census tracts or blocks to a particular district. The 2010 census data for building these plans is now online, along with detailed instructions, definitions and submission guidelines. The public should submit plans as electronic files. Each publicly-submitted plan will be published online and forwarded to the county’s Redistricting Advisory Committee for consideration. In addition to submitting redistricting plans, residents are encouraged to contribute ideas and suggestions about county redistricting to the Redistricting Advisory Committee in person at any of the committee’s meetings or by email or U.S. mail. A meeting schedule and contact information is posted on the redistricting website. The county’s Redistricting Advisory Committee is the citizen’s panel charged with gathering public opinion on how to adjust the county’s supervisorial district boundaries to balance their populations. Such balancing is required by law every ten years following the census. At its upcoming public meetings, including an evening meeting in each district, the committee will consider the public’s plans and suggestions. Ultimately, the committee must recommend no more than three proposed redistricting plans to the board of supervisors. The board will adopt a final redistricting plan that takes effect in early September. Please visit the county’s redistricting website is at

Martin Cooper Cell phone inventor envisions an even greater revolution seeded by social networking

Profile BY ARTHUR LIGHTBOURN Contributor Let’s face it. Not many of us accomplish anything resembling a giant leap forward for mankind. But local resident Martin Cooper did — when he invented the cell phone and made the first call on it 38 years ago. Today, there are an estimated five billion cell phones in use around the world. It is, without a doubt, an invention that revolutionized the world as we know it and is continuing to do so on a daily basis. But this is just the beginning, Cooper predicts: Social networking is the seed of another revolution that in future will surpass the cellular revolution and contribute to a more collaborative

world. Cooper was working as an engineer at the radio-related Motorola company when he came up with the wild idea of using the cellular telephony concept (conceived in 1946 by AT&T) to invent and build the first portable, hand-held cell phone, thereby challenging communications giant AT&T’s monopolistic intention to control cellular technology and confine its use to car phones. Motorola had lengthy experience with portable radio communications. In 1940, it produced the famed walkie-talkie used by the military during World War II. “We didn’t care for the idea of a monopoly,” Cooper said. “It would have either put us out of business or

Quick Facts Name: Martin Cooper Distinction: While working as a research engineer at Motorola, Cooper was credited with inventing the handheld mobile cell phone. He retired from Motorola in 1983 and with his wife launched various companies in the wireless technology field. He was recently a nominee for “The Man Who Saved the World Award.” Born: Chicago, Illinois, 82 years ago Education: Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago, 1950, and later, while working and studying at night, went on to earn his master’s degree in electrical engineering from IIT in 1957; in 2004, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from IIT. Family: He and his wife, Arlene Harris, have been together for 32 years. She has been called “The First Lady of Wireless.” He has two children and four grandchildren. Interests: Skiing, tennis, and running on the trails in Torrey Pines Current reading: “Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking,” by Malcolm Gladwell; and “Freakonomics: The Hidden Side of Everything,” by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner. Also books on social networking. Favorite films: Action, science fiction and fantasy films. Favorite get-away: Vail, Colorado Philosophy: “It’s important to live a long time, but it’s more important to live healthily and productively … and with a positive attitude…Have good genes and respect them.”

made us a slave to AT&T. We had our own vision. So we took on AT&T. “We knew that people didn’t want to talk to cars, or to houses, or to offices. They want to talk to other people…To demonstrate this, we invented the first portable cellular telephone so that we could prove to the world that our idea of personal communications was correct” and to convince Martin Cooper making the first cell phone call in New York in 1973. the Federal Communications Commission to allocate frequency space to private companies for use in cellular communications. Although the mobile hand-held “cellular” phone was his idea and the result of his missionary zeal within Motorola to make it happen, he said, “It actually took a team to build that phone,” at a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The team included industrial designers and engineers from various divisions within Motorola. And, on April 3, 1973, while walking on the street to a press conference to demonstrate the invention at the Manhattan Hilton Hotel in New York City, Cooper, then director of Motorola’s systems division, couldn’t resist pushing the orange “off hook” button on Motorola’s 2-and-a-halfpound prototype handset that wirelessly connected him to a base station that Motorola installed on the roof of a nearby building. Dialing the number of his rival, Joel Engle, head of research at AT&T’s Bell Labs, and lifting the hefty handset to his ear, Cooper made the world’s first in-public analog mobile cell phone call. In his characteristic, low-key Midwestern accent, Cooper said: ‘Hi , Joel. This is Marty Cooper. I’m calling you from a cell phone — but a real cell phone, [pause], a personal, [pause again] hand-held cell phone.’ “You notice how I rubbed it in,” he chuckled to recall. “There was a silence on the line and he may have been gritting his teeth, then he politely chatted with me

Martin Cooper with his wife Arlene. Courtesy photos for a moment and then we hung up. To this day, Joel doesn’t remember that phone call, but I promise you it happened because there was a journalist, like you, standing next to me at the time.” Cooper was named as the first inventor on the “Radio telephone system” patent filed on Oct. 27, 1973, with the U.S. Patent Office later issued as U.S. Patent 3.906.166. Others named on the patent were engineers who worked with Cooper at Motorola and his boss, John F. Mitchell. Ten years later, 1983, Motorola brought its cell phone to market, the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, that weighed 2 pounds and offered a half-hour talk time for every recharging. It sold for $3,995. We interviewed Cooper, now 82, at his office on Via de la Valle in Del Mar. Cooper remains as focused and feisty as he was when he was 44 and made that first historic cell phone call in 1973, although now his still full head of hair and neatly trimmed beard are white. He keeps in shape skiing, playing tennis, and trail-running in Torrey Pines. And he still remains adamantly opposed to monopolies in any business, particularly in communications. “We were an annoyance [to AT&T],” Cooper said. “And, in fact, if you went and talked to Joel today or his colleagues, they still believe the world would have been much better off if Motorola had not antagonized

them and [had] let them do what they wanted to do. “There are people who believe the monopoly way is the way to do things. And I have very strong feelings about that. Competition is wonderful. Competition is the way we consumers end up protecting our own rights. We can’t battle the billion dollar companies. And the only way we can do that is by buying one product versus another.” As for AT&T’s recent announced intention to purchase T-Mobile USA, thereby making AT&T the largest U.S. wireless carrier, Cooper commented: “The carriers would very much like to have a monopoly and they work very hard to do that. They do have competition now, but there are a couple of huge companies, specifically Verizon and AT&T, that are dominant and they would like to become more dominant… And if they have a big chunk of radio channels and nobody else can use those, it gives them an effective monopoly. “And that’s not in the public interest.” Cooper retired from Motorola in 1983 as vice president of research and development. Since then, he and his entrepreneurial wife and partner, Arlene Harris, have launched a number of wireless-related companies, including ArrayComm that researched smart antenna technology and the improvement of wireless networks, and GreatCall that created the Jitterbug, an easy-to-operate cell phone

for seniors. He currently heads Dyna Llc, a software “incubator” of wireless software. “I do a lot of speaking, and some people even pay me for that,” Cooper said. A native of Chicago, Cooper earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering on an Navy ROTC scholarship from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1950 and afterwards served in the Navy as an electronics officer on a destroyer and submarine. Returning to civilian life, he worked briefly at Teletype, which was then part of AT&T. In 1954, he joined Motorola as a research engineer, attended classes at night to earn his master’s in electrical engineering from IIT in 1957. He was awarded an honorary doctorate from IIT in 2004, Asked if he received royalties for his invention of the cell phone, Cooper said: “When I joined Motorola, they gave me a dollar and that was compensation for all my future inventions and intellectual property. So the answer is ‘No.’ On the other hand, Motorola took care of me very well. I have no ill feelings at all. “My bosses were the most wonderful teachers in the world. I was not a typical corporate guy, but they tolerated me for 29 years, gave me free rein and let me do all kinds of creative and interesting things. “My group did the first radio control of traffic. We did the first nationwide mobile dial system for car phones. We did the first nationwide radio pagers. And we did the first radios that policemen carried in Chicago in 1967. Cellular was just kind of a follow-on to all these others.” But, he conceded, had he received a royalty of a penny for every cell phone sold, he would be ahead by about $50 million. “Yeah,” he said thinking about it, “I could use $50 million. So could you,” he guessed. These days, he said, “I’m trying to stay current with both technology and See COOPER, page 12

RSF Democrats to hear controversial ex-lawyer Bill Lerach Controversial ex-lawyer Bill Lerach is the featured speaker at the next meeting of the Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club. Lerach, who as a class-action attorney took on industrial giants and once won a $46 billion verdict against Enron, will be speaking on the topic of pensions in the public sector. The meeting will to be held April 20 at a private home. Cost to members is $15, and guests and non-members are $25. Cocktails begin at 6:30 p.m., with the program starting at about 7 p.m. In his legal career, Lerach was – depending on one’s point of view — a legendary or a loathed attorney who took on companies such as Qwest, WorldCom, Citibank, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Disney and AOL Time Warner on behalf of shareholders. In March 2010 an account of Lerach’s life and career was released: “Circle of Greed: The Spectacular Rise and Fall of the Lawyer Who Brought Corporate America to its Knees.” Written by two Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, the well-reviewed book chronicled Lerach’s career from his early days through his time in prison for obstruction of justice. The Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club was founded in 2008 and typically attracts 35-60 people for its events, including appearance by candidates running for local and state offices. In March, state controller John Chaing addressed the group. For information or to register and obtain the address, please visit, email or call 858-869-9515

Local resident helps bring medical care, education to one of the world’s poorest nations BY MARLENA CHAVIRA-MEDFORD STAFF WRITER Sandwiched between India, China and Thailand is Myanmar, one of the poorest nations in the world with a population that’s facing a staggering health crisis: About 40 percent have tuberculosis; about 360,000 are infected with HIV/AIDS; and almost half of all malaria cases can be traced back to this southeast Asian country, formerly known as Burma. The people here are further crippled by an oppressive military regime, which has snuffed out efforts to fight these diseases. The situation is worsened even more by the country’s lack of accessible healthcare. It’s not uncommon for villagers in the remote mountains to travel 500 miles on foot and bus to reach the nearest clinic, a trip that can take weeks. “Imagine being in Montana and having to go to Seattle to see a doctor,” said local physicians assistant Cyril Thomas, who recently spent a week teaching lifesaving skills to some of these villagers during a medical mission trip through the Frontier Labourers of Christ’s Barefoot Doctors program. Thomas has spent about 20 years volunteering for medical mission trips to dozens of nations all over the world. This most recent trip, however, was the first time he had the opportunity to teach skills, rather than perform procedures. “By providing the Barefoot Doctors the knowledge to take care of their own people, it became clearer to me that they can prevent disease, cure some of them, refer them to proper local clinics and save life beyond our wildest dream,” he said of the program, which was hosted in Thailand, but included many villagers from Myanmar. “Knowledge is the gift that keeps on giving.” That knowledge will be especially critical now in Myanmar as its people deal with the fallout from two deadly natural disasters this month: a deadly storm that killed hundreds of fisherman off the coast, and a 6.8 magnitude earthquake that hit the town of Tachileik, killing and injuring hundreds more. All of this all comes just a few years after the 2008 Cyclone Nargis, which had an official death toll of 22,500, but some reports have estimated that number to be closer to 100,000. An exact number is difficult to know because births and deaths are not always recorded, and the military control makes it difficult for outside sources to get accurate information. Though it was the worst natural disaster recorded in Myanmar’s history, Thomas pointed out that Myanmar did not receive nearly as much global response as

Cyril Thomas (in the red shirt) and Rick Astone, a physical therapist, in Myanmar. other recent natural disasters. For example, about $528 million was raised in two weeks when the Haiti earthquake hit — but only $91.3 million was raised in 21 months after Cyclone Nargis. “By continuing our education program, we will make a greater impact that will last beyond the disaster,” Thomas said, adding that in places like Myanmar, dire need exists on a regular basis, not just when natural disasters strike. According to data from the United Nations, more than 28,000 children younger than 5 die every day from treatable illnesses such as diarrhea, respiratory infection, malaria and AIDS. That’s approximately 1,200 deaths per hour. By comparison, Thomas points out that the 2004 tsunamis along the Indian Ocean coastline killed about 300,000 people. That means in the poorest areas of the world, it’s the same as having three tsumanis per month, every month. “Some people live a tsunami every month,” he said. “You can tell people the story, but there’s nothing like getting your hands dirty and looking these people in the eyes and suddenly thinking ‘Oh God, this is real.’ Looking those people in the eyes, Thomas added, is a strong teaching moment — and it’s precisely why he’s brought his two children with him on some of his medical mission trips. It’s a family tradition started by his father, who worked to rehabilitate inmates in Mad-

agascar, where Thomas was raised. In Madagascar, corrupt prison guards would let some inmates out at night so they could commit crimes, and then allow them to sneak back into prison by sunrise. His father’s work to rehabilitate these inmates often put him in danger and, tragically, it ultimately led to his death. When Thomas was 2, his father was gunned down in their home. His mother, who was pregnant with his younger brother, was also shot. Though she and the baby survived, his brother was born handicapped. “I think a lot of healing needed to happen, and this has helped me find that,” Thomas said of his medical mission work. “During one of my trips to Haiti I read something on a wall that’s stuck with me: ‘You have to live for nothing and die for something.’ I’ve come to realize the truth in that. “When you reach out and help those in great need, you become a better person.

Is there a doctor in the house? There will be four at the Jeste family residence! BY JOHN GUIGAYOMA Contributor As UCSD medical student Neelum Jeste’s hands tore through the envelope that would fling her across the country for the next three years, her mother was by her side. Jeste had applied to around 20 schools, interviewed at 13, and after months of waiting, she and 127 of her peers discovered their residency placements March 17 at UCSD on what is known as Match Day, a nationwide ceremony that determines the next step toward a hopeful doctor’s career. But for the Jeste family, this milestone was one of many in the medical field. Dr. Dilip Jeste, Neelum’s father and a UCSD research psychiatrist, was announced

as the president-elect of the American Psychiatric Association on March 14, just days before Match Day. At 38,000 members worldwide, the APA holds the title of the world’s largest psychiatric organization, according to its website. Dr. Sonali Jeste, the mother who stood by as her daughter opened the fateful envelope, is a child psychologist at Kaiser Permanente Medical Care. The Jeste’s older daughter, Shafali, an M.D., is on faculty at UCLA as a child neurologist. The family has lived locally for 25 years. As for her Match Day results, Neelum Jeste said she was happy with her placement, Washington University at St. Louis, a Missouri school with strong clinical training, ample funding for research, and abundant opportunities in global health. The decision to pursue medicine came not from the assertion of her parents, but rather from paying witness to their interest in

UCSD medical student Neelum Jeste opens the envelope to find her residency placement with her mother, Dr. Sonali Jeste, at Skaggs School of Pharmaceutical Sciences at UCSD on March 17. medicine throughout her childhood. Dinner conversations covered homework problems and tennis practice as much as research breakthroughs and hospital anecdotes. “A lot of kids I know who are children of physicians, I see them NOT wanting to do anything in medicine,” Sonali Jeste said, re-

calling how some parents would express their dissatisfaction with their jobs. “(My parents) come home and they are happy and they love talking about their jobs.” Said Dilip Jeste of his daughters’ decisions to enter medicine, “For both, we are proud of the fact that they have their own minds

and make their own decisions. This is the main goal as parents, to make sure they are happy. It is something they have to decide.” The family’s affinity toward medicine began with the Jeste parents, who began their studies in India. Dilip Jeste was born to a middle-class family from the state of Bombay and is the first physician in his family, he said. Among the titles he holds at the university are Estelle and Edgar Levi Chair in Aging, and Director of the Sam and Rose Stein Institute for Research. With a strong interest in geriatric psychiatric research, Jeste made advancements in the treatment of late-onset schizophrenia. But with two parents in the medical field, the Jeste children witnessed their parents juggle the schedules of physicians with the challenges of parenthood. Between being on call and attending conferences, mother sent cupcakes for class parties and father attended

every tennis match. “My profession is very important to me, and I was not going to give that up,” Sonali Jeste said. “But I was also wanted to know that my kids knew their mom was here.” At the same time, the children gained further exposure to the medical field. They met with practitioners from different areas at casual get-togethers, and the family planned vacations around Dilip Jeste’s conference schedule, traveling to countries such as Australia and Israel. “They set a good example that you can still raise your kids just as well and work just as hard. … When I am a working parent with kids, I will know that it is possible,” Neelum Jeste said. For Dilip Jeste, striking that balance between work and home was not difficult because his priorities were clear. “We genuinely love our kids, and our kids come first before everything else,” he said. “Family has to come first.”

Canyon Crest film students ‘Reel In’ ‘Best Fest America’ award

Five Canyon Crest Academy film students won honorable mention at a recent film festival held at Ultra Star Cinemas in Hazard Center. Ten student film teams from high schools and colleges across San Diego County competed by creating their own scary adaptations of an original screenplay, “Ghost in the Machine” (by local screenwriter Lisa Merrill), for the 10th Annual 48 Hours of Madness Best Fest America Film Festival. Each of the films dealt with kitchen appliances turning on by themselves. The teams were given 48 hours, a script with important parts missing, and no ending and were told to come up with a cohesive film. The Canyon Crest Academy students formed their own production company, Righteous Cowboy Lightning, and holed up at one of the team member’s homes. The team members were: Catie Ellwood (12th grade), Olivia Klatch (10th grade), Jacob Morrison (11th grade), Jesse Ostroff (11th grade), and Sam Sarokin (10th Grade). The team was sponsored by their Canyon Crest Academy Film Conservatory teacher Mark Raines. The team re-wrote the screenplay, staged all the shots, auditioned actors, set up lighting, sound, scoring, special effects, and edited the final product all in a grueling 48-hour marathon. “We really put our film skills to the test,” claimed Jesse Ostroff, who acted as team leader of the project. “It was really a challenge,” remarked Olivia Klatch, “The hardest part was agreeing on how the story should finish; but we really enjoyed working together.” Three awards were presented. Canyon Crest High School won Honorable Mention High School Division. Poway High School won First Place, High School Division, and Southwestern College won First Place, College Division. Best Fest America is a nonprofit visual arts foundation event based in La Jolla.

RSF residents experience ‘magic’ on trip to Antarctic

Letters to the Editor: Size matters as PR goes mobile

When the chilly, rainy days of January hit, many Rancho Santa Fe residents leave in search of sunshine and summertime temperatures. Palm Springs, Hawaii and the Caribbean are all popular destinations. We found a sun that never set and summertime temperatures that hovered around 32 degrees — in Antarctica! Hiking buddies and travel enthusiasts, we dreamed of a trip that would offer plenty of adventure off the beaten path. The result was an Antarctic excursion that included stays in Buenos Aires and Iguazu Falls, but those stories will have to wait for another article. The typical Antarctica itinerary involves a cruise ship that sets off from Ushuaia, Argentina, crosses the Drake Passage and travels along the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, the northwestern-most edge of the continent. We determined we wanted a small ship that would offer the most opportunities for adventure; and decided to travel with Quark Expeditions aboard a Russian ship, the Akademik Sergey Vavilov. Quark promised not only hiking and sea kayaking, but a night of camping out on the ice as well! This passage would take us farther south than most Antarctic trips: we would cross the southern latitude 66 degrees 33’44” — the Antarctic Circle. Penguins were first on our “must see” list of Antarctic and we were not disappointed. We were enraptured by their innocence as they bustled about, seemingly oblivious to our human presence. Focused on nest-building and chick-tending, they appeared indifferent to our frantic photo snapping. The most amazing colony we encountered was on Deception Island, a place that can only be described as “Penguin Planet.” In wonder, we watched the 500,000 penguins that covered the hillsides. A curious few wanted to study their infrequent human visitors up close, but most were far too busy with their own lives to be bothered with us. What surprised us most about Antarctica? Without hesitation we would both agree, it was the ice. Until you’ve seen as iceberg larger than your house, or even a skyscraper, floating in an azure sea, sparkling like a million fiery diamonds, you may not understand the fascination of “Big Ice.” It is sometimes so intensely blue that our friends think we digitally altered our photos. In addition to the zodiac excursions that were offered every day, we were part of a fortunate group of only 16 passengers who experienced the Antarctic marine life from the intimate vantage point of a sea kayak. Imagine that you are out on a wide, glassy bay, enveloped by a luxurious silence that is broken only by the crunching sound of your kayak pushing through the brash ice fragments that cover the still water. Suddenly, there is a whoosh and as you look out perhaps 30 feet away you are stunned to glimpse the dorsal fin of a humpback whale cruising around you, checking out the alien marine form of the kayak. She circles and moves away as another trails her. Mesmerized, you watch the whales watching you. Then with a powerful flip of their mighty flukes, they disappear. Magic. Ann Boon and Kris Charton Rancho Santa Fe

BY GRANT WRIGHT Is smaller better? This has been on my mind lately, especially since reading that for the first time smart phone shipments have surpassed PC sales. According to the analysts at IDC, in the 2010 fourth quarter 101 million smart phones were shipped, a whopping 87 percent increase from the same quarter a year prior. Meanwhile, only 92 million PCs were shipped with this representing just a 5.5 percent increase from the same period 2009. On entire year sales, PCs still ruled at 346 million to 302 million smart phones. But with smart phones increasingly capable for many of the functions that PCs are bought for — surfing the web, checking email — I think the trend is clear. Why lug your PC around (or camera and camcorder for that matter) when you already have much of what you need in your pocket? From a PR industry standpoint, this has profound implications. “Surfing the web” no longer means just looking up a coffee shop or checking a company’s website in a passive sense, and it no longer means using a computer to do it. Pew study data from May 2010 found that 38 per cent of U.S. adults who have a mobile device access the Internet with it, up from 25 percent the year prior. Pew also found that 82 per cent of US adults have a mobile device, meaning just more than 31 percent of all U.S. adults use a mobile device to log into the Internet. And what are they doing there? 23 percent accessed social networks, 20 percent viewed a video and 11 percent even contributed to a charity. With cell phone carriers’ push to implement 4G wireless networks throughout the country, these percentages will continue rising. For example, Verizon’s brand new LTE 4G wireless network launched in December achieves 10 times the speed of their EV-DO 3G network and is already available in about 40 cities and growing – the wireless brakes are off! Stream a two hour hi-def movie to your pocket without annoying buffering? No problem! So what are the PR implications? Well, consumers are about to be unshackled from their chair and computers when interacting with content. But here’s the catch – the experience is crammed into about three or four inches of screen. Your favorite artist’s new music video? Chances are increasing that it will be consumed from a four-inch window. Imagine the fourth row of dancers behind Lady Gaga now being a fraction of an inch tall and you get the idea. The great new splashy online ad? Yep, four inch window. And how many screen changes will it take to scroll through a news article? A lot. “Ah!” you say. “Screens can be bigger!” What about the new iPad2 or the new Samsung tablet!? Cool, yea, but there’s a limiting factor — the form-factor of the lowly pocket or that cute little purse! Who wants to look like Urkel, all device bulked up? Most guys I know still haven’t figured out where to comfortably carry their wallet. And I just can’t see anything bigger than a smart phone as the grudging must-have accessory in women’s fashion. And for the argument that people just won’t want to consume multi-media on a tiny device due to the inferior experience, well, that’s what the music industry thought about inferior MP3 files and their inherent quality loss. iTunes seems to be doing just fine, and in the “Price, Quality, Speed – Pick Two” game, quality of multi-media consumption so far seems in a losing battle. I think history will record that 2011 was another game-changing year, when size really came to matter for how good communications should best be adapted for an increasingly tech savvy world. So is smaller better? It better be. Grant Wright, is CEO of (W)right On Communications and a Rancho Santa Fe resident;

Education Matters Fair Share, and how the budget crisis is hitting home By Marsha Sutton Due to the severity of California’s education funding crisis, the state has given districts the flexibility to use state money previously earmarked for what’s known as Tier III categorical programs for other purposes. For local Basic Aid school districts, these “other purposes” generally means giving the money right back to the state. Basic Aid school districts re-

ceive the bulk of their money through property taxes, while the other “Revenue Limit” districts don’t receive enough in property taxes and need money from the state to reach a predetermined minimum level of funding. Because of this, state cutbacks to education have impacted Revenue Limit districts more than Basic Aid districts. To share the pain, Basic Aid districts agreed several years ago to return some of their money to the state in an amount that’s calculated to be proportionally the same as the cuts less wealthy Revenue Limit districts are having to absorb. So Basic Aid districts – which include San Dieguito, Del Mar, Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe – are giving back what’s called their Fair Share of money. Local districts are, for the most part, choosing to return their Fair Share money from the funds the state sends them for categorical programs. The money still comes to Basic Aid districts from the state, but the districts are required to send back their Fair Share. Del Mar Union School District superintendent Jim Peabody said it’s the district’s decision where to find the money to return to the state for the Fair Share contribution. “It does come to us, but then we send them a check right back,” he said. The state doesn’t care which funds the money comes from, said San Dieguito Union High School District superintendent Ken Noah. “They just want their percent,” he said. Last year’s Fair Share, which is calculated primarily on the budget as it relates to enrollment numbers, was 5.81 percent, and next year’s is 8.92 percent. For the Del Mar Union School District, the Fair Share this year was $1,476,642, and next year’s estimate is $2,306,700, Peabody said. Leslie Fausset, superintendent of the Solana Beach School District, said this year’s Fair Share was $972,000, and next year’s is expected to be $1.5 million. Rancho Santa Fe School District superintendent Lindy Delaney said this year’s

Fair Share for her district was $257,651, and next year she is expecting to owe about $363,000. For San Dieguito, the number is more complicated. Because San Dieguito is a new Basic Aid district, its coffers are not as well-stocked as the other three local elementary school districts. Noah explained that the Fair Share cannot exceed the property taxes a district receives. For example, if 8.92 percent represents $8 million, and the district’s excess taxes above Revenue Limit is only $4 million, then San Dieguito’s Fair Share is the excess tax, or the $4 million. So the district would lose all its excess property tax money, but would not have to dip into other money to reach the 8.92 percent. For well-established Basic Aid districts, they would likely still have excess property tax money, even after paying the state the full 8.92 percent, even though programs are being significantly impacted. According to Noah, San Dieguito paid $5.2 million for this year and estimates it will owe between $5 million and $7.5 million next year, “depending on the interpretation of how the 8.92 percent of Revenue Limit is applied to ‘low wealth’ Basic Aid districts relative to ‘excess property tax’ collection,” he said. As an example of the impact on programs, the March 23 DMUSD board meeting included a chart listing 12 Tier III categorical programs and the dollar amount for each. The programs total about $975,000, all of which is being returned to the state as part of the district’s Fair Share payment. The major programs on Del Mar’s list include: School and Library Improvement (SIP): $229,810 IMFRP – Instructional Materials: $224,416 Deferred Maintenance: $135,933 Professional Development Block Grant: $134,124 P.E. Teacher Incentive Grant: $117,441 Arts and Music Block Grant: $56,832 Math and Reading Professional Development: $26,063 Peer Assistance and Review: $20,655 Gifted and Talent Education: $14,204 An untenable expectation To add a final depressing note, the education advocacy organization School Services of California reported last week that the state may make cuts to education in the neighborhood of $4 billion to $5 billion next year, if Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax extensions are not passed. This would place 2011-2012 funding at the same level it was in 1999-2000, more than 10 years ago. But, as SSC noted, expenses have not been stagnant in the past decade. “The cost of providing educational and support services has gone up significantly over the last ten years to keep up with the consumer prices,” stated the SSC report. Consider these SSC statistics:

Average teacher salary Avg. health/welfare contribution Total average compensation

2000-2001 $52,363 $ 5,486 $57,849

2009-2010 $67,571 $ 9,844 $77,415

This $20,000 difference represents a 34 percent increase in salaries and benefits. SSC pointed out that school districts are also paying higher costs for facilities, instructional materials, equipment and supplies, utilities, rents and other expenses. If education funding were to revert back to 1999-2000 levels, districts would be expected to provide increasingly demanding instructional programs with costs at 2011-2012 levels – what SSC called “an untenable expectation.” Marsha Sutton can be reached at:

The district’s response on the 2010 report stated that training on cash receipts, with detailed procedures on collection, verification and documentation, was conducted. Dill said this training was given to ASB personnel at all school sites “to prevent reoccurrence.” The district also wrote that it will continue “to monitor activity and procedures with site visits from the internal auditor as well as upgrading software to provide district-level oversight.” Before 2008, violations were noted at Carmel Valley Middle School in 20032004, Diegueno Middle School and two at La Costa Canyon High School in 2004-2005, Oak Crest Middle School and Canyon Crest Academy in 20052006, and two at Earl Warren Middle School in 20062007. In most cases, the violations were internal control weaknesses such as late deposits to bank, invoices not marked as paid, inadequate documentation, improperly completed cash transmittal forms, unauthorized contracts and inability to reconcile tickets sold with cash received. Dill said the district has increased its involvement and oversight of ASB accounting since 2007 and now has a dedicated district accounting person in the finance department to review monthly ASB financial reports and bank reconciliation statements. Additionally, the finance department holds quarterly ASB training sessions to ensure compliance with established guide-

lines, according to the 20062007 audit report. An internal auditor conducts comprehensive audits of ASBs and regularly tests their records and procedures just as the external auditors do, Dill said. “District staff is now connected to each ASB’s accounting software package so that we may review their transactions and financials at any time,” he said. And procedures and issues are regularly reviewed by site ASB directors, assistant principals and district finance administrators. “None of this is reactionary,” Dill said. “We’re not aware of any problems with any of our ASBs, but we want to keep it that way. So we are strengthening our oversight and internal controls over student body funds.” Dill said ASB accounts have no impact on the district’s general fund or its instructional programs, but “it’s important that the adults teach kids how to run an organization and keep it fiscally sound,” he said. “We treat ASB accounting very seriously,” he said. “Students contribute to those funds and deserve professional handling and oversight of their money to make sure that the funds are secure and will be used for the intended purpose of benefitting the student body.” Where the money goes Reports from July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2010 show that income for the 2009-2010 school year for ASB accounts for the two local high schools exceeded $1.5 million. The ASB report for Torrey Pines High School shows a beginning balance of $333,281, income of

Odd items, like the marquee at Canyon Crest, may be one-time-only, for initial costs to buy and install. For both schools, funds that were in the red often had money transferred in from other accounts to reduce the imbalance.

Remember, if it’s precious to you, it’s VERY precious to us.

$809,702, and expenses of $779,050 – for an ending balance of $363,933. The ASB report for Canyon Crest Academy shows a beginning balance of $232,682, income of $701,683, and expenses of $704,154 – for an ending balance of $230,211. In the Torrey Pines ASB records, there were 186 separate accounts – although some were listed twice, with one account showing income and zero expenses, and a second account for the same club or activity showing expenses and zero income. Because income and expenses for the same club or activity were not always placed together in the same account, reconciling the numbers was sometimes difficult. Canyon Crest had 110 accounts, with income and expense numbers together in the same line item. Clubs, athletics, the arts, academic teams, publications, competitions, dances and yearbook were among the most active at both schools. At Torrey Pines, these accounts showed the greatest income and expenses for 2009-2010:

Rancho Santa Fe Review


Lifelong love of animals shaped Robin Cohen’s career Native San Diegan Robin Cohen grew up near Mt. Helix in East County, where she was surrounded by lots of land and animals. “My mom drew the line with reptiles but everything else was welcomed into our home,” she recalled of her childhood. Those early days laid the foundation for a life-long love of animals, which ultimately led her to the Helen Woodward Animal Center, a private nonprofit dedicated to saving the lives of animals and enriching the lives of people. Cohen started working there in 1992 after earning her degree in cultural anthropology at UCSD. Though Cohen went into the job thinking it’d be a temporary gig while she went to graduate school, Robin Cohen she soon realized that she’d “basically hit the job lottery” and decided to stay. “Why would I leave when I get to work with great staff and volunteers, wonderful animals, make people smile all day and bring my dog to work,” she asked. Cohen now helps to run the center’s Pet Encounter Therapy (PET) program, which brings animals to visit people in facilities such as abused children’s shelters, hospitals, psychiatric facilities, and senior centers. Though she’s been involved with PET for 17 years, Cohen said she’s continually “amazed by the healing that is offered by our volunteers and animals.” When Cohen is not bringing the joy of animals to others, she loves spending time with her large extended family, and her own adopted animals, a parakeet and a 13-year-old sheltie, which once worked as a therapy dog though these days he’s “mostly retired and spoiled.”

1. What brought you to this neighborhood? My work brought me to this area. I started working at the Helen Woodward Animal Center in 1992 and thought it would be a short-term position while I figured out what I wanted to do after college. I soon fell in love with every aspect of what we do for the animals and for our community and have never left. It has been an incredible 19 years. 2. What makes this town special to you? It is a beautiful place to work. And there are animals everywhere you look. 3. If you could snap your fingers and have it done, what might you add, subtract, or improve in the area? I think that there should be more affordable housing available throughout San Diego that allows pets. Too many animals are surrendered because their owners can’t find a place to live that will let them keep their companion. No person that cherishes animals should have to live without a loving pet — especially our seniors. 4. Who or what inspires you? My parents inspire me every day with the love that they have for each other and for their family. They will be celebrating 50 years of marriage this June

and I am still in awe of the life that they have built together. I am also inspired by the people that work in the non-profit world – both paid and volunteer. There are so many un-sung heroes in our community that quietly go about saving the world. 5. If you hosted a dinner party for 8, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? There are so many people that I would like to meet from history. Michelangelo, Moses, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King to name a few. I would also invite my mother’s grandparents so I could meet the people that were brave enough to leave the only home that they ever knew to find a better life in America for their family. It would also be fun to meet Helen Woodward to see what she thinks of how we have grown. And my bonus guest would be my sheltie that just passed from cancer. She would enjoy getting some tasty tidbits from the table. 6. Tell us about what you are currently reading. I am in the middle of “The Lost Hero” by Rick Riordan, which was recommended by my 13-year-old niece. And the next book on my nightstand is “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein.

7. What is your most prized possession? Possessions have never been that important to me. I feel really lucky that I have a home, a safe car and a fulfilling job. But I do have a few prized treasures in my life – my family, my friends and my sweet sheltie. 8. What do you do for fun? I enjoy hiking, gardening, reading, painting, dinning out and going to the movies. 9. Please describe your greatest accomplishment. Managing the Pet Encounter Therapy (PET) program for the last 17 years. Our mission is to bring the unconditional love and tactile benefits of animals to people in need. I have worked with some pretty incredible volunteers and animals and over the years we have made over 7,000 visits in our community. The people that we visit light up when our animals come in the room, they smile, laugh and sometimes cry because of what they are dealing with – and our animals and volunteers are there to simply hear them and to love them. 10. What is your motto or philosophy of life? “Please let me be the person that my dog thinks I am.”

Brothers join forces to raise funds for Epilepsy research BY MARLENA CHAVIRAMEDFORD Staff Writer Zel’s Del Mar recently hosted a fundraising dinner for the Epilepsy Foundation of San Diego County’s upcoming 12th Annual “Sharon’s Ride.Run.Walk for Epilepsy,” the largest event of its kind in the nation. On Sunday, April 17, hundreds of San Diegans will come together at DeAnza Cove in Mission Bay for the annual 15-mile bike ride and 5K walk and run, all in hopes of educating the public about epilepsy and raising funds for the foundation’s research and programs. Among those participants will be Bill Glassman, who has suffered

from epilepsy for about four years and is the brother of Zel’s Del Mar owner Greg Glassman. The brothers say giving back to worthy causes like these keeps with a family tradition set forth by their grandfather Zel, who was fixture in Del Mar and was dubbed the “unofficial mayor” thanks to community involvement. “Our grandfather was one of the guys who did a lot for [this area] and a lot for other people,” said Greg, who’s been at the helm of Zel’s for about a year and a half. “People still come in here and tell me stories about my grandfather, and how he helped. We want to

Bill Glassman with his wife, Joelma, and daughter Bianca Lani keep that alive, so we’re finding ways to keep giving back.” With help from Greg, brother Bill is now raising money for his team Aloha

Del Mar Antique Show & Sale at Fairgrounds April 15-16 The Del Mar Antique Show & Sale will be held April 15-16 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Now in its 51st successful year, Calendar Antique Shows will present 65,000 square feet of antiques, vintage collectibles and decorator items (more than 250 premier antique dealers from all over California & the Western United States). The show hours Friday and Saturday are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Sunday is 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The admission of $8 is good for the entire run of the show, with free return privileges. Fifty percent discount available at; 800-943-7501.

Oe Seizures, which will be competing in the April 16 event. “Aloha Oe is a Hawaiian word that means goodbye forever and it was used for

my team because I just want to get rid of these seizures forever,” explained Bill, a San Diego resident who once lived in Hawaii, where his daughter was born. At one point Bill said he was suffering about one seizure a day and now, with treatment, he has about one seizure per month. “When you have one of these seizures, it takes you down for the next day because every muscle in your body hurts — it’s horrible,” he said. Bill’s epilepsy did not hit until his late 30s and doctors are not entirely sure what triggered his epilepsy because causes can range from genetics to diets to head trauma.

His hope is that through fundraising and outreach he can help to further epilepsy research and education. If you would like to make a donation to his team, you can email him at Billyg63@ For more information about Sharon’s Ride.Run.

Keynote speakers selected for the 12th Annual Women in Business Symposium

At the clean-up: Sean Doyle, Max Myrick, Scott Jacobi; Sydney Shaffer

Spring cleaning for TPHS Stadium March was spring cleaning time at Torrey Pines High School! The TPHS lacrosse teams put down their lax sticks and picked up rakes, shovels and brooms to beautify Falcon Stadium. Scholar-athletes from both the Boys and the Girls lacrosse programs, as well as parents, worked enthusiastically for three hours pulling weeds, removing 30 bags of trash, clearing drains and sweeping the stands. With budget cuts to schools, very little manpower goes to keeping up the grounds and facilities besides nominal trash removal so the students have enthusiastically stepped up to fill in some gaps! The Brown family generously provided pizza for more than 60 participants after the work was done. This was the first community service project coordinated by new boys lacrosse head coach Jono Zissi, and TPHS parent volunteer Kellie Doyle. Continuing opportunities for TPHS lacrosse players to give back to others currently include a Red Cross donation drive for Japan, as well as other events to be announced. For more information on activities or volunteer opportunities at Torrey Pines High School, please contact the Foundation Office at (858) 793-3551 or

The 12th Annual Women in Business Symposium, being held on Thursday, May 19, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, has selected this year’s keynote speakers. Both are powerful presenters and critically-acclaimed, award-winning women who have inspired many throughout their illustrious careers. This year’s theme is “Sharing the Power of ‘So What’s Next?!’” Many women take on so much in their daily lives and still face each day with an internal strength and forward-looking attitude of “So What’s Next?! I can handle it!” Rita Kahn will address the attendees with “So What?!, Do It Anyway, Lady!” for the times when those same strong women hesitate or allow challenging times to slow them down. Kahn is a nationally- recognized columnist, TV hostess, Distinguished Toastmaster and professional speaker. She uses lots of humor and outrageous personal inspirational stories that make her audience realize that “you can do it, too!” And as we look to “So What’s Next?!” on a daily basis, life and work can sometimes become stressful.

Son’s birth brings director to town as his latest film opens BY DIANA SAENGER Contributor Saoirse Ronan stars as “Hanna� in the new thriller hitting theater screens on Friday, April 8. The story instantly mesmerizes as a young girl pits her survival skills against an animal twice her size and strength, Mother Nature, and her own father. “Hanna,� a mix of genres that blend seamlessly, excites and intrigues thanks to an inventive story by Seth Lochhead (screenplay by Lochhead and David Farr), and superb direction by Joe Wright.

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

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. And since they don’t live in the local area or read local newspapers, investors look at hyper-local websites like searching for available properties. For example, the site attracts people from 51 countries in March, 2011 and generated 5,312 visits from countries worldwide. It’s interesting to note that the sites largest number of daily

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.

Your Family Matters: Answering your kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; questions BY DR. KEITH KANNER Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as easy as you think when you have to answer your kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; questions. To begin with, sometimes we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the answer, and we also have to take the question seriously and answer them in Dr. Keith Kanner a way that satisfies their curiosity, makes them feel better, and teach them something that they will likely remember because it came from you, the parent, instead of a teacher. So, answering questions is a pretty big deal. To make matters even more complicated is that the answer to the particular question has to also consider your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cognitive (thinking) and emotional levels or that answer might cause more harm than good. For example, last night my 6- year-old was very afraid of the thunder and lightening storms. Living in Southern California his entire life, the storm probably feels like an earthquake would feel to us because they are very unfamiliar. He was very cute, but very afraid. He asked important questions such as: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Does lightening ever kill people?â&#x20AC;?; â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happens if it hits your house?â&#x20AC;?; Are we going to die from this?â&#x20AC;? In the back of my truck, my 8- and 11-year-olds were rolling their eyes and laughingly telling him that he should go swimming today with a golf club in his hand. So, he is now really confused. Obviously here the point is that my 6- year-old is concerned about things that my other two are not because they are older and able to understand things differently and do not need me as much to soothe them as I already answered these questions for them when they were younger. Of course, when I reminded them of that talk, they refused to give me any credit. In fact, they were able to even joke about the storm, rather than be afraid, yet my 11year- old did find the noise â&#x20AC;&#x153;annoying,â&#x20AC;? which is clearly a â&#x20AC;&#x153;tweenâ&#x20AC;? response. Taken together, each parent has to remember to take in consideration the age of the child asking the question. I should also mention that allowing the older siblings to help with the answer to the questions of a younger

sibling should be supervised or the older siblings who love, yet also resent that younger brother or sister, may try to inflict some fear just for â&#x20AC;&#x153;fun.â&#x20AC;? This is what happened in my truck last night and I had to ask my older kids to let me do the talking on this one. Step two is thinking about what you want them to learn. The times when our children ask us questions are what I call â&#x20AC;&#x153;Magic Moments,â&#x20AC;? because this is a valuable time to teach our kids about the world and we have their attention when they come to us with questions. So, think it through before you respond. The third step is helping to reduce their anxiety. In other words, when a child comes to you with fear, your job is to take it away with your words and hugs. In addition, using some printed information materials to help you teach your children can be very helpful as long as it is not overly graphic or â&#x20AC;&#x153;too much information (TMI),â&#x20AC;? which could backfire your attempts to calm them down. In my case last night, we looked up storms in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The New Book of Knowledgeâ&#x20AC;? (which I recommend to all households to own â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Scholastic Publishers) and read about what storms are all about and normalized the experience which calmed my 6-year-old down. We actually used this research for all of the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mandatory reading for their school for the night. So, after I explained how rain and storms are made; used some printed material to support my teaching; gave him tons of hugs and assurance that he was safe indoors from rain, thunder, and lightening, he fell asleep with a calm look on his face. He woke up, however, and asked me why his brother and sister told him to go swimming with a golf club? I told him that just like when he gets mad that he is not the older kid, they get mad that he gets to be the younger one and sometimes they like to play tricks when they are mad. We ended the conversation with me telling him that his questions were great, thanked him for asking me, and told him that before he does what his brother or sister tell him to do, check it out with me first. Tonight I have a meeting scheduled with my two older kids about how they need to respond to their little brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questions. Key Points: 1. Consider the age of the child asking the question â&#x20AC;&#x201C; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go beyond what they can understand 2. Think about your answer and what

Upcoming Indian Music & Dance Festival features Carnatic music When you think of Indian music, you probably think of the sitar, and the intricate beat of the tabla, the drum that accompanies it. This is Hindustani music, from the north of India, first popularized in the West half a century ago by Ravi Shankar. But the Indian Music & Dance Festival in his honor thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming to La Jollaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jewish Community Center April 13-17 will feature a different kind of Indian classical music. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a form that only recently started attracting Western attention â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Carnatic music, from the southern part of the subcontinent. Though both forms are largely improvisational, Carnatic music includes more singing, and lacks the Persian and Islamic influences of northern music. Also â&#x20AC;&#x201D; surprisingly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one of its featured instruments is the violin. The 4th annual festival, celebrating Ravi Shankarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 91st birthday, includes five days of events, beginning with a musical workshop/

Violin-playing brothers Ganesh/Kumaresh demonstration Wednesday evening. As always, the festival is produced by IFAASD, the Indian Fine Arts Academy of San Diego, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting Indian classical music. The festival will be held at the Garfield Theatre, JCC, 4126 Executive Dr., La Jolla. Tickets: From $25; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lonnie Burstein Hewitt

Lux welcomes artist Rick Stich

Jim and Linda Brown, Kathleen and Jim Stiven Tom and Cecilia Kucharski, Diep Huynh

At a reception held March 26, Lux Art Institute, San Diego’s first LEED certified interactive art destination, welcomed Santa Barbara-based painter Rick Stich as the next resident artist of the 2010/2011 season. An avid surfer, Stich finds his inspiration in the color, reflection and movement of water and in its interplay with light and landscape. From now through April 23, Stich will be living and working at Lux, while creating a 4 x 6 foot painting, as well as studies on paper, inspired by water. He will also be building a dock and a water feature inside the Lux studio as part of his installation. Visitors can “see art happen” while he is in residence and view his exhibit, featuring 18 of Stich’s paintings, through May 18. Lux Art Institute is located at 1550 South El Camino Real in Encinitas, Calif. For more information about donations, memberships, volunteer opportunities and more, visit or call 760-4366611.

Local resident follows dream and finds fulfillment in new career as a mentor BY MARLENA CHAVIRA-MEDFORD Staff Writer After immigrating here from Ireland as a young woman, local resident Michelle Finegan Saunders joined the American masses climbing the corporate latter. She spent the next 23 years making a name for herself in the pharmaceutical marketing industry, something that eventually earned her a nomination as a top mentor to women in the life sciences industry. No doubt, she’d finally reached the top of that corporate latter — but she wasn’t’ living her true American dream, she said. “Being recognized as a mentor really caused me to step back and take stock of my life,” Finegan Saunders said. “I realized that though I’d really enjoyed my work in the pharmaceutical industry, it wasn’t a fit for me any longer.” Instead, she said she longed for something that let her use her natural mentoring skills to help others, while affording her a more flexible lifestyle so she could spend more time with her young daughter. Three years later, she has found a calling that fits the bill working as a certified executive and business coach. “To anyone who wants to follow their heart and change careers I always like to use a quote I love: ‘Feel the fear, and do it anyway,” she said. “It is important in your next career,

especially if you change industries or fields, that you stop comparing what you used to do to what you are doing now. You must forge forward and seize the opportunities ahead of you. “If you hear a voice telling you something Michelle Finegan needs to change, listen, Saunders and go in the direction of your dream.” Finegan Saunders said after going in the direction of her own dream, she now enjoys a better quality of life, and finally has that free time to devote to her 9-year-old daughter, who was just diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. But perhaps the biggest payback is how highly rewarding her work is, she added. Using her many years of executive experience, she helps her clients get a clear sense of what they really want to achieve in the workplace, and how to best get there. She also arms them with the tools that they may lack to help them advance up that corporate latter, like the confidence to effectively negotiate that promotion, for example.

Americana keeps customers coming to its cozy ‘corner’ in Del Mar village BY KELLEY CARLSON andy Gruber is living his Americana dream. “This is what I envisioned and more,” said the fourthgeneration restaurateur and chef at his Del Mar eatery, which serves American food with a Mediterranean influence. Located in the historic Stratford Square, at the corner of Camino del Mar and 15th Street, the restaurant hosts customers day and night. During breakfast and lunch, sunlight filters in the paned windows as customers chat with one another and read newspapers in what Gruber describes as a “diner-esque” setting — funky and eclectic, yet warm and inviting, as reflected in the artwork and checkered floor. Rock and reggae music play; some customers opt to sit on the covered patio with their dogs. Earlier in the day, there are waffles, omelettes and breakfast plates, some of which are named after people in Gruber’s life, such as Casey’s Call and Lina’s Breakfast Sandwich. As the day continues, entree salads, soups, burgers and grilled sandwiches are


Steak Frites, served with wine from Bogle Vineyards and a side of Tuscan bread, garlic herb butter and house-marinated olives

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: Americana’s Grilled Lamb Chops with Roasted Eggplant Salad offered. Kids menus are available for youngsters age 10 and under. At night, the restaurant undergoes a transformation. The music becomes more jazzy and mellow; the lights dim; candles are lit. A full bar is offered, including beer (on tap and bottled) and wine. “It’s a little more ‘bistro-y,’ ” Gruber said of the evening vibe. Some of Gruber’s personal favorite dinner dishes include Steamed New Zealand Green Lip Mussels, Steak Frites, and the Dylan’s and the Caramelized Figs Thin Crust Pizzas. He said everything is made from scratch and he buys local whenever

possible, including the bread, which is from O’Brien’s Boulangerie in Del Mar. A prix-fixe dinner menu is offered for $30 Tuesday through Saturday nights, which includes an appetizer, entree, dessert and a glass of wine. Also, it’s half-price for a bottle o wine every evening, compared to full price at lunch time. Restaurant goers have about 50 vintages from which to choose; the special price not available with other promotions Gruber said that while reservation can be made for dinner, there are plenty of walk-ins; however, seating is on a first-come, first-serv basis during the day. The busiest times tend to be on the weekend and during the Del Mar racetrack season, from mid-July through early September. Americana can accommodate 55 people inside and about 70 on the patio. Takeout is available, which can come in handy during the restaurant’s busy times or for customers on the go. Americana also offers full-servic catering. Gruber said the restauran has served at events in Del Mar, La Jolla, Rancho Santa Fe, Rancho Bernardo and Poway.

Trust, communication key to success at Ina Wealth Management Group BY KAREN BILLING STAFF BOX When Richard Ina read a statistic online that seven out of 10 individuals would be willing to leave their financial advisor, he found it disturbing. The senior vice president of investments for Ina Wealth Management Group, at Carmel Valley’s UBS office, prides himself in treating his clients so well that they would never leave. “We are a trustworthy alternative because we spend so much time educating and communicating with our clients, that’s how we build trust,” Ina said. “That’s what separates us, the element of trust and communication.” He said not many advisors would feel comfortable putting all of their clients in a room together like Ina’s group does with their client appreciation events. He is confident that all of their clients feel taken care of and wouldn’t complain about the way they have been handled. When coming aboard with Ina Wealth Management, each person receives a “Client First” checklist, a list of 25 things Ina Wealth Management does that they feel other advisors don’t. “We have a very sophisticated investment management style that tends to do well in up and down markets,” Ina said. Ina, originally from Ohio, has been in the financial services industry for 23 years, previously at Merrill Lynch and Smith Barney before moving to San Diego seven years ago. He came to UBS in San Diego and many of his Cleveland clients followed him. With a team of seven people, the group caters to clients all over the country –they’ve been at their Carmel Valley location for the last three months, moving to the area from Rancho Bernardo. Ina usually finds himself working very hard for his clients—he is usually in the office by 5 a.m., even on Saturdays, and often leaves his desk late. “There’s no replacement for hard work. There’s so much research that comes past my desk that I have to put in the time,” Ina said. “It’s really my passion. It’s so important that you are absolutely passionate about what you do.”

RIchard Ina The majority of their clients are higher net worth individuals and small business owners, with $1 million or more. Ina’s clients are from all different walks of life, from winning the lottery to a man who cleans industrial chemical tanks. “These clients are already wealthy, they are not interested in swinging for the fences, they want to hit singles and doubles every year,” said Ina. “They want the best and we focus on helping them reach their dreams, goals and all the things they’re trying to do in life.”

Services they provide include improving investment management, lowering volatility, transferring of wealth, retirement planning, insurance, and even educating client’s children, teaching them at a young age how to treat money effectively. They help clients with all aspects of wealth management, Ina said, really trying to change their lives for the better. Ina will be the first to admit that being an advisor in these turbulent economic times has been a challenge. “I’ve seen many changes in our industry in the last few years that has certainly tested my mettle,” said Ina. Despite the economic downturn, Ina has seen his client base double in the last three years. He attributes that growth to his group’s constant communication, trust and capabilities—he believes his clients represent that three out of 10 who would not be willing to leave their advisor. For a free consultation, call (858) 947-7991 or visit Ina Wealth Management Group is located at 12220 El Camino Real, suite 400.

Fingerprinting is now easily available in the community

Being a resident in Carmel Valley since 1995, and having owned Postal Annex in the Piazza Carmel/Vons shopping center for the last 10 years, Kirk Krikorian was always looking for ways to expand his business services to the community. In early 2007, after extensive research for needed business services, he decided to make an investment in establishing “Del Mar Live Scan,” a company that specializes in fingerprinting for both Live Scan and FBI Ink cards. After the proper licensing and clearance by the Department of Justice and FBI, they established a marketing plan that focuses on businesses and professions that are required by law to have background checks for their employees/volunteers. This was followed by personal contacts, establishing relationships with key organizations and delivering professional services with flexibility and extended hours. Currently, they have multiple licensed operators on staff and conduct business in the North County, as well as the entire San Diego County. They are open seven days a week and accept walk-ins business throughout the day. For multiple applicants at one location, mobile services are also available. Today, after being in business for almost five years, they are well established in the community for providing superior service, and most of their increased business is now based on referral from local business and organizations. Del Mar Live Scan provides a secure, comfortable, professional and friendly environment for all customers. Feel free to visit their website at , or feel free to call 858-342-2389. They are there to help!

Dr. He Said, She said: How technology affects relationships

Hanalei Vierra, Ph.D. (Dr. He) and Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Lissa Trent, Ph.D. (Dr. She) Dear Readers: Technology has created a paradigm shift in the way we all communicate and connect with one another. As computer chips have gotten smaller and faster, it seems as if we have access to the whole world at our fin-

gertips in our everyday lives. When it comes to meeting potential life partners, the internet provides a huge array of opportunities for people to introduce themselves to one another, but with that opportunity also comes a whole new set of challenges and responsibilities. Looking for a soul mate on an internet dating site in the comfort of our own wi-fi connection can at least keep all of our insecurities in check until the first meet-and-greet. But the fun really begins when the ideal online profile and photo runs into the reality of the

first face-to-face impression! If the real person we meet ends up being far different from the ideal person weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read about, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty hard not to mistrust someone who has misrepresented themselvesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;before any kind of relationship has even been established! Because of the whizbang speed that technology has served up to us to access information, we have become hooked on immediate gratification. Press a button and you have an instant connection, feedback, affirmation, and update on relationship status all through texting, Facebook, Twitter, chat forums, blog sites, instant messaging, and emails. This sets a low bar for frustration tolerance when it comes to getting our needs met in relationships because it actually takes time to establish trust with another human being. If someone in a face-to-face moment with their partner is not feeling they are getting their needs met, it is much too easy to run to the internet to satisfy that need for affirmation. The problem is that accessing the internet has abso-

lutely nothing to do with accessing self-respect, which really is what is needed in those frustrating relationship moments. While the internet is here to stay and has a productive place in our lives, the energy we direct toward the internetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when it becomes a distraction from our partnersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;takes energy out of our intimate relationships. The internet has become a huge escape route for many. Marriages suffer as couples sit and stare at their computer and phones at the expense of conversation and connection with their mate. How many of us can get through a dinner without checking our cell phones? Receiving text messages and voicemails triggers our need to make sure we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss out on something importantâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all the while forgetting that the most important thing in our life is sitting right across from us. So in addition to having the separate experience that sitting and staring at the TV or movie screen is with our partners, we now contend with an additional distraction with electronic devices.

The amount of time that adults and children spend on the computer has reduced the communication between parents and their children due to the lack of quality time they spend together. Children are not learning the art of socializing, conversation, and connection. Theirs is a generation of multi-taskers and video-gamers. All of these distractions heighten the development of ADD while at the same time lowering the experience of being present in the moment with themselves and with others. While electronic devices and the internet have probably helped us all organize our lives in many ways, we also need to take steps to minimize the negative effects of technology on our relationships. So at the very least: a) make agreements about how much time everyone spends on the internet aside from work or school, b) agree to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;offlineâ&#x20AC;? days and see how the energy shifts towards each other and with your children, c) devote time to talking at dinner where everyone is unplugged, and d)

teach your children through example and talk to them about the importance of personal connection. Whatever the future holds for us in terms of technological advances, we cannot imagine a future where technology is a substitute for good old-fashioned, face-toface, human interaction.

All our best,

Dr. He Said, Dr. She Said Hanalei Vierra, Ph.D. (Dr. He) and Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Lissa Trent, Ph.D. (Dr. She) are a married couple who have worked together for over 14 years coaching troubled relationships to clearer communication, deeper intimacy, and healthier partnership.

Hoof Beats: Paradise found BY KEN FEIGNER, DVM We truly live in a horse riderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paradise without equal. Of all the other premier riding areas in the world, there are few if any with all of the nearly perfect conditions we have here in the Rancho Santa Fe area. We can thank our unique geography and history that has given us this gem of a horse heaven. It starts with the year Dr. Ken Feigner round temperate weather with just enough rain and water to support a lush and varied vegetation. This in turn supports and protects a teeming songbird and wildlife population. We are far south enough to stay relatively warm in the winter and close enough to the Pacific to enjoy cool summer breezes. We can thank the Santa Fe Railroad for planting several thousand acres of rolling hills and valleys with millions of eucalyptus trees. These have flourished and spread in the hundred plus years since they were planted. We can also thank them for the foresight, when the eucalyptus wood didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work well for the railroad ties as they initially planned, to see that the area would be perfect for a planned community with a strong equine emphasis. Not only that, but they ensured the preservation and maintenance of this Spanish Rancho style â&#x20AC;&#x153;gentlemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farmâ&#x20AC;? community by establishing a strong Rancho Santa Fe Covenant for its residents. This groundwork led to the foundation of nearly a thousand farms ranging from smaller personal barns and pastures of a few acres to large professional riding stables including nearly fifty miles of riding trails. All this has attracted many of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top equestrian trainers and events to our area. Every year brings numerous local and regional horse shows and events for almost every conceivable breed and discipline.

Rancho Santa Fe has managed to maintain what so many other equine communities have not. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been around long enough to have personally seen far too many unique and special horse areas disappear. They have lost land, lost money, lost commitment or lost identity and have faded away. Yet RSF has retained its unique equine character. Whether you look at lifestyle, property values, quality of life, community services or character, the RSF Covenant has done an excellent job of protecting and maintaining these benefits. And so in this glimpse of local horse history we come at last to this column you are reading â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Hoof Beats. This was the original brainchild of Mary Pisciotta who used this space to keep the horse lovers of the Rancho Santa Fe area informed of the latest equine news, events and advice for many years. Although Mary is no longer with us I will humbly attempt to carry on where she left off. I will do my best to keep you up to date with local equine news and events, the latest in equine health and nutrition, sports medicine, disease prevention as well as pasture and soil management. I hope that you will also make this your own column. Let me know what you would like to hear about, any specific topics you would like covered or any news or events you would like announced. One last favor I would ask of you. Next time you are out enjoying your horses, take a moment to look around and be thankful for what we have here. It really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any better than this, my friends. Viva la Santa Fe! Dr. Ken Feigner has practiced as an exclusively equine veterinarian for twenty years. He has worked as both an ambulatory and a hospital doctor in Washington state, Wellington, Florida and southern California. He has developed extensive experience in equine sports medicine and lameness, podiatry, performance dentistry and VOM chiropractic manipulation. He currently practices as an ambulatory equine veterinarian as an associate with San Luis Rey Equine Hospital. He can be reached at 760-5357818 or through the hospital at 760-726-4566 or by email at
