BY KAREN BILLING A sizeable draft environmental impact report (EIR) on proposed development One Paseo has been circulating for nearly a month as Kilroy Realty continues its efforts to create a “Main Street” for Carmel Valley. The EIR gives the opportunity for people to weigh in on what it might mean for the community. “We’re focusing on working with the local planning board and community to make sure the plan that moves forward is something that is embraced,” Robert Little, vice president of development at Kilroy Realty said. The city has extended the comment deadline to May 29 and the plan will be discussed locally at the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board at its meeting tonight (April 26) and at the subcommittee level.

DMUSD looks at locations for Childcare Development Center

■ Miracle League of San Diego’s Home Run Derby a big hit. Page B13

BY KAREN BILLING The Del Mar Union School District presented four options, both short and long term, for a new location for the Childcare Development Center (CDC) at a special workshop on April 19. In option A, the CDC/preschool location would remain at Sycamore Ridge, shifting the classes to the separate child care building. Option B would be to relocate the CDC/special education preschool (3-5 year olds) to Ashley Falls and option C would be to relocate the

infant/toddler and age 2’s to Ashley Falls. The one long-term option presented was to construct a new permanent building at a school site, a cost of $4-6 million. The board is expected to hear a recommendation from staff on their preferred option at the April 23 meeting. The CDC moved to Sycamore Ridge from the old Ninth Street district office two years ago on a tem-


Little said they anticipate a lot of comments and they will have to address them all to move on with the process but said they are very excited to be at this point. “It’s a lot of work but we’re very happy because the whole CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) process is the critical part to getting the project moving,” Little said. One Paseo is planned for the lot on El Camino Real and Del Mar Heights at 1,857,440 square feet of development. There will be 270,000 square feet of commercial retail, 557,440 square feet of commercial office, a 100,000-square-foot hotel and 608 multi-family residential units. There will be a total of 4,809 parking spaces throughout the project in underground parking, one


DM school district may place general obligation bond on November ballot School board set to vote on authorization of feasibility study BY KAREN BILLING The Del Mar Union School District is considering putting a general obligation bond on the November ballot. The board held a workshop on April 19 at Ocean Air School to hear a presentation from the Dolinka Group on the necessary steps in the GO bond process. Preliminary financing analysis showed a bond worth an estimated $59 million over 16 years, with $16 million being available in 2013. The cost of the bond is limited to a maximum of $30 annually per

$100,000 of assessed property value. “We want to make sure taxpayers pay as little as possible and get as much as they possibly can,” said Benjamin Dolinka, president of the Dolinka Group. The district’s project list must be specified in the bond measure and it requires 55 percent approval from the voters. At its April 25 meeting, the board will vote on authorizing a district-wide feasibility study on the potential GO bond and the district could move forward on a tight timeline leading to the election. The feasibility survey would be out in May and the results present-

Sheriff’s Department says teen parties in vacant homes cause for concern; Parents asked for help The Encinitas Sheriff’s Department recently sent out a letter to San Dieguito Union High School District parents notifying them that the Sheriff’s Department has received several calls recently involving teen parties being held in vacant homes. The notification read as follows: “In recent weeks the Sheriff’s Department has responded to calls for service involving large teen parties. The parties are located in vacant homes. These parties involve underage drinking and drug use. Two of the parties involved more than 200 teens and when deputies arrived, they scattered which caused a grave concern for the community and the welfare of the teenagers, many of whom were driving cars. “The Sheriff’s Department would like to make you aware of this activity and they are enlisting your help in keeping our teenagers and the community safe from underage drinking and driving, alcohol and drug use, and all of the associated crime and activity. “They are diligently working to prevent a recurrence of these types of parties

which have also included huge financial losses for the home owners as a result of vandalism and theft to the properties themselves. “The Sherriff’s Department will be enforcing all laws applicable in these situations. Those laws include curfew, Social Host ordinances, driving under the influence, burglary, vandalism, and drug laws. “They are seeking your help and ask that you notify the Sheriff’s Department if you or your child have any information regarding an upcoming party. That information would include the location, the organizers, and any adults who are providing alcohol.

New recycling-friendly trash system to start up in Del Mar BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

As of April 9, if you are one of the 65 percent of Del Mar residents who did not select a new bin size for the new pay-as-you-throw collection system, Waste Management has automatically selected a default medium-sized bin for you, and you will see no rate increase. If you’d like to save money and potentially waste, however, Waste Management will accept requests for exchanges and make every effort to honor the late responses, but the actual exchanges will not take place until at least the week of May 29. Exchanges may be requested after the delivery of the new carts. In all cases, Waste Management will begin making exchanges the week of May 29, on residents’ normal collection day. Under the new system, approved in December, the more trash that residents put on the curb, the more they pay. The approach is to incentives recycling. During the bin selection period, which lasted three weeks, two community meetings were held at the City Hall Annex. A Waste Management spokeswoman said they were both well attended. According to a recent quality of life study from the Equinox Center, Del Mar disposes of the second-most amount of waste per capita in the county, behind Coronado. Equinox Center spokeswoman Emma Leggat said this is mainly due to the large influx See TRASH, page 27

During UCSD visit, Dalai Lama says science and religion not incompatible in curbing global warming BY PAT SHERMAN His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama was in good spirits during a visit to UC San Diego April 18, where he frequently told jokes, chuckled and even gave UCSD Chancellor Marye Anne Fox an affectionate head-butt. The spiritual head of Tibetan Buddhism was at UCSD to discuss climate change before heading to the University of San Diego to talk about cultivating peace through justice. Both events were sold out, as was an address at San Diego State University on April 19. Opening the event at RIMAC Arena, eBay founder and chairman Pierre Omidyar noted that the Dalai Lama has previously stated his belief that when scientific facts contradict Buddhist beliefs, “those beliefs must be discarded.” A 1989 Nobel Peace Prize winner, the Dalai Lama was discussing climate change with UCSD professors Veerabhadran Ramanathan and Richard Somerville. During his opening remarks, Somerville said the Earth’s climate has always changed from natural causes. What is different today, he said, is that human activities have become the dominant factor. “Our generation today now controls what the climate will be for our children and grandchildren,” Somerville said. “We did not seek this power but we have it because we have long used the atmosphere as a free dump for the side effects and waste products of human activities. “The case for urgency” in dealing with climate change is “scientific, not ideological or political,” Somerville said. Ramanathan began by offering a “scientific message of hope.” “There is a practical and proven way to slow down global warming considerably in our lifetime,” he said. “In fact, we can cut down expected warming over the coming decades by almost half and thus slow down the melting of the glaciers and snow packs, particularly in the Tibetan gla-

UC San Diego Chancellor Marye Anne Fox showed customary respect to the Dalai Lama after he presented her with a Tibetan scarf. Photo/Carol Sonstein ciers, which are referred to as ‘the water fountain of Asia.’ ” Spiritual leaders, such as the Dalai Lama and the Pope, have the “moral authority” to demand cleaner climate practices, Ramanathan said. The Dalai Lama stressed the importance of nations setting aside “national economic interest” and coming together with the “full force of cooperation” to slow global warming. “The world belongs to humanity,” said the 76-year-old spiritual leader, who sported a UCSD Titans visor for the discussion. “America belongs to the people … not to Republicans or Democrats.” Climate change, said the Dalai Lama, “is a question of our life, our survival. … This is something, very, very serious.” While the toll war and violence takes on humanity is evident through widespread imagery, climate pollution is

As many as 4,500 people gathered at RIMAC Arena April 18 to hear the Dalai Lama discuss global warming with UCSD professors Veerabhadran Ramanathan and Richard Somerville. Photo/Carol Sonstein often an “invisible,” yet omnipresent killer, the Dalai Lama said. “This blue, small planet is our only home, no other planet,” he said. “We have to take care of it.” Stressing the importance of education and awareness, the Dalai Lama said that if mankind can work together to reduce the threat of nuclear warfare, it can do the same to reduce greenhouse gas-emitting pollutants. The future of the planet depends on the “oneness of humanity,” said. Somerville called for educating political leaders on the problem of global warming, though adding, “I am optimistic about what technology can do, (but) guardedly optimistic” about what politics can do to solve the problem.

Del Mar Heights continues to take a proactive approach to technology learning BY KAREN BILLING Del Mar Heights School continues to lead the way for the Del Mar Union School District in technology learning. For the third year students are using iPods in the classroom and this year, for the first time, iPads were introduced into fourth grade classrooms. Technology at the Heights is completely project based, supporting what students are learning in the classroom, said Gail Moran, Extended Studies Curriculum technology teacher. In no way are the devices a “babysitting tool” and Moran said one of the most exciting Fourth grader Kennedy Quay works on her iPad at Del things to happen is that the Mar Heights. Photo/Karen Billing iPads and iPods have changed the way teachers teach and the way children learn. The program goes hand-in hand with the district’s goal to create a 21st century learner—students learn collaboration, communication, problem solving, media literacy and digital citizenship. “We have to provide these opportunities for kids because in the future that’s what they’re going to need. We’re preparing them for jobs that haven’t even been created yet,” Moran said. Del Mar Heights isn’t the only local school breaking new ground in technology. Cathedral Catholic High School next year will become the first school in San Diego County with a school-wide One to One iPad3 program—iPads for every student. Parents will still purchase a limited number of textbooks and pay an annual fee for the iPad rental, apps and other technology needs. “These young people grew up on this type of technology—they’re digital natives,” said Sean Doyle, director of technology in a press release. “We believe these devices will offer them access to more information for less money, as well as increase their efficiently and fully engage them in learning.” Del Mar Heights’ iTouch pilot program launched in spring 2010 with one third grade class using iPods. In 2011, they added a second third grade class. This year, all three third grade classes have iPods and the fourth graders share one set of iPads. Their program is constantly evolving, with help from generous PTA donations, and Moran hopes they are able to purchase a second set of iPads for the fifth grade next year. Other schools in the district have started to look at mobile devices as well—Del Mar Hills has netbooks, Carmel Del Mar has netbooks donated by the Dad’s Club this year and Google Chromebooks will be piloted at Sycamore Ridge this spring. The district is looking to make a decision in June about what type of mobile device will be implemented at all the schools and then it will be piloted at two schools’ fourth through sixth grade classrooms. Del Mar Heights started its program on its own and its push with the devices is in reading and writing. “Writing scores have improved. It’s a tool that the students like to use and teachers have noticed they are highly motivated,” said Moran, noting most everything they need is available at the touch of a finger, such as dictionaries or research. “That doesn’t mean that they never learn to put a pencil to paper. We did it overkill the first year with making them do everything on paper first. Students complete much of their work in Google documents. Assignments can be handed in paperless and teachers can make corrections to the document and the students can share documents when they’re working on a collaborative project. They can even watch See TECHNOLOGY, page 14

KEEP TALKING, WE’RE LISTENING. We know that an excellent circulation program is important to the community. We want to make improvements to not only address new traffic from One Paseo, but to help address existing problems as well.

Addressing Traffic Flow in Carmel Valley Above and beyond what will be required by the City of San Diego, the plan for One Paseo includes adopting a traffic light synchronization system along Del Mar Heights Road, starting at High Bluff Drive and continuing east all the way to Carmel Valley Road. We anticipate that almost a dozen areas of improvements throughout the transportation system will be provided, at a cost of millions to One Paseo.

EIR continued from page 1 above-ground parking structure and small surface lots. At the heart of the plan is a “Main Street” for Carmel Valley, with a walkable center of shops, restaurants, offices, residences and a movie theater. Janette Littler, a Carmel Valley resident who said she would feel the impacts as well as anyone at her home on Townsgate Drive, said she loves the idea of Carmel Valley getting a “community landmark.” She attended one of Kilroy’s workshops and was impressed by how they interacted with the community and wanted to become involved. “I really do support this,” Littler said. “I want to make sure it happens.” While there are some that like the project and how it could change Carmel Valley, an opposition group called What Price Main Street has also formed to take a stand against the mixed-use development

that they feel is way too big for the community, “Nobody is opposed to the concepts in their plan,” said opponent Bob Fuchs. “But expanding something four times what is currently entitled with token improvements creates impacts felt by the whole community. That concept is hard to get across, especially in the face of their PR campaign that’s misleading and misrepresenting.” “It’s easy to say ‘We’d love to have a Henry’s and a Main Street’, whatever it is,” opponent Ken Farinsky said. “But it’s so hard to explain the impact of this project and how big it is.” Since the 4,500-page draft EIR was released on March 29, Fuchs has spent significant time going over the details and researching — he estimates he spent about five hours a day on it and that’s “just scratching the surface.” “It’s really monstrous project and it’s going to have serious impacts,” Fuchs said. “Del Mar Heights to I-5 is a serious, significant and unmitigat-

able impact. It can’t be fixed.” The impacts The Draft EIR found that the project would result in significant direct or cumulative impacts to transportation/circulation/ parking, visual effects and neighborhood character, noise, health and safety and historical resources, but that they would be able to be reduced to a level below significance with mitigation. But the two unmitigatable impacts the EIR found were the traffic (transportation/circulation/parking) and visual effects and neighborhood character. The significant, unmitigatable impacts occur on Del Mar Heights from I-5 southbound ramps to I-5 northbound ramps; Del Mar Heights from I-5 northbound ramps to High Bluff Drive; El Camino Real from Via de la Valle to San Dieguito Road; El Camino Real to SR-56 eastbound on ramp; and Via de la Valle from San Andres Drive to El Camino Real. “A key point to remember is that the traffic impacts and the generations are based on full project build out with all the known and possible cumulative projects added in,” Little said. “Impacts are seen at the peak hour of the day; the EIR and traffic study look at the worse case scenario.” Fuchs believes that the worse case scenario is something everyone should be aware of. “It could cripple Carmel Valley,” Fuchs said. Fuchs pointed to a SANDAG study that 81 percent of households has someone that commutes more than 10 minutes. He said One Paseo could add 25 minutes of commute to westbound on Del Mar Heights Road to the I-5 southbound ramp. Kilroy is doing its part to mitigate traffic impacts and the EIR states that many of the mitigations will bring the impacts down below significant impact. Mitigation includes payment of a fairshare contribution toward specific improvements on El Camino Real/SR-56 eastbound on ramp intersection, as well as toward the timed meters on the I-5 ramps. The EIR says those improvements would fully mitigate the impacts but the city has no control over when those improvements would be installed. Little said by and large the project mitigates the impacts identified; however, at full build out there are a couple areas that remain

unmitigated along with what CEQA requires to be called unmitigated. “This is where the project pays its fair share contribution but we need to identify those improvements ‘unmitigated’ from a CEQA perspective,” Little said. Fuchs worries about the fact there is no control over when improvements might happen. “Because there’s no guarantees, the community could be stuck with impacts everywhere,” Fuchs said. Littler said that she likes the traffic circulation improvements that Kilroy is offering the community, as far as using smart technology to synchronize the traffic signals and a new right turn lane when you’re headed east on Del Mar Heights, turning right onto El Camino Real. “We always split the lane and drive into the bike path. This project gives us a whole new right turn lane. I love that they’re taking care of a current problems in their plan,” said Littler. “These are privately funded amenities we would never have if it was left up to the city of San Diego.” Kilroy has said that it will reduce traffic delays in the system up to 46 percent. Fuchs said he has his reservations about the synchronization system and has looked into its efficiency in San Marcos. At best he said it improved traffic delay by 13 percent and at worst, worsened it by 4 percent. “If it was so good how come every city in the county isn’t using this thing?” Fuchs said. Littler said improvements like those are expensive and what Kilroy is able to offer is above what the city is able to provide. Fuchs and Farinsky said it’s hard for them to explain how dense One Paseo will be because they cannot find anything else like this that exists in a suburban area like Carmel Valley. Fuchs said a more densely populated area like downtown could tolerate this “high density development” because it has circulation and access at multiple points and mass transit. Kilroy’s plan does call for rapid transit from Oceanside and University Towne center along the Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real corridors with a transit stop on El Camino Real. Fuchs said that bringing people from Oceanside sounds like an isolated solution. “It’s not a bus where people in the community can use it to get to One Paseo from Del Mar,” Fuchs

said. However, there are some developments that are within walking distance. Farinksy said the visual effects and community character being defined as an unmitigatable impact was dead on as there is nothing in the surrounding area that is as tall as nine or 10 stories, the height of an office building and hotel respectively. He said the view of the plan always offered looking down on the project is misleading and doesn’t allow people to get a real feel for how high the buildings will be or the homes that will line Del Mar Heights. “The DEIR said there’s no important views in Carmel Valley,” Farinsky said, making a case for looking south at Carmel Mountain or back at the Del Mar Hills. “This project will block a lot of views.” As far as fitting in with the community being an unmitigatable impact, Littler said she thinks the project will fit in just right. “Anything is going to have a visual impact of some sort, even not doing anything is a visual impact,” Littler said. “This is a net positive for our community, not by a little bit but by a lot.” Littler said it will also fit into the community by creating a new workforce. “I’m very, very excited about the possibility of providing jobs in our damaged economy, a place where our kids will go to work as well as small business office space,” Littler said. “That’s really important to me.” The alternatives Kilroy had to submit project alternatives to be studied in the EIR which included: 1) No build 2) Developing the site for what it is entitled, 510,000 square feet of corporate office. 3) Commercial only — only the commercial elements would be constructed, including the 510,000 square feet of office space, 21,000 square feet of professional office and 270,000 square feet of retail. Medical office/Senior Housing alternative — 425,000 square feet of medical office and 600 senior housing units 4) No retail alternative: 510,000 square feet of office, the 150-room hotel and 609 multi-family residences. Farinksy said he wished Kilroy could have presented a mixed-use alternative that promoted less traffic by cutting out a lot of retail and trimmed some residential.

Littler also wasn’t excited about any of the alternatives—the entitled office buildings offering just “concrete, asphalt and steel from corner to corner” of El Camino Real with little or no traffic improvements or aesthetic improvements to the community. “Do we want an office space corridor or a community Main Street with a gorgeous community meeting place?” Littler said. “If any of these alternatives are selected I would be just as fullthroated in my opposition.” She said the worst possible alternative was if the land stayed as it has for years, as a “fallow, dead spot” which she believes creates a negative impact of its own. ‘Meaningful’ input Fuchs said he doesn’t like that One Paseo will change the community plan and set its own size and height limitations, he feels it should be the other way around, that the community sets the parameters and developers design to fit. He worries about the consequences. “If this goes through, it’s open season for developers to cram as much as possible into any open site,” said Fuchs. “There’s no way to stop it.” Fuchs said that Kilroy has stated they’ve made numerous changes to their plans due to public input since it was first presented in 2009 but he does not believe it to be true. The only change he could find was a 30,000 square foot reduction in office space. “That’s less than 2 percent of the project, it’s a totally meaningless gesture,” Fuchs said. “There needs to be meaningful input from the community, working closely with the community planning board.” Little disagrees, saying Kilroy has been responsive to public input. “The project undergoes continual changes and continues to evolve not only technically but with community input,” Little said. “There’s been multiple changes to the plan, it’s just that we can’t please everybody all the time. It doesn’t mean we’re not listening. A lot of comments and opinions have to be deciphered to find consistent trends to determine what people want to see to make it a success.” Public comment will be accepted on the draft EIR until May 29 and it can be accessed on both One Paseo’s site, and What Price Main Street’s site is

After two years of being the “bridesmaid” at the North County Academic League championships, Canyon Crest Academy came out on top last week over host and rival Torrey Pines High School, earning the right to represent North County at the San Diego County finals on Thursday, April 26 (after presstime for this newspaper). Canyon Crest Academy pulled out to a seemingly insurmountable 46-0 lead in the first eight minutes of the 35-minute match. The Ravens’ correctly answered the first seven toss-up questions that were buzzed in on, with captain Anthony Tokman answering the first three. But defending champion Torrey Pines, which dealt the Ravens their only loss in a nail-biter during the regular season, can never be counted out. The Falcons clawed back to within five points, 88-83, with seven minutes remaining. That would be as close as Torrey Pines would get, however, as CCA got back on track and went on to win the championship battle, 125-94. Torrey Pines and CCA are both in the San Dieguito Union High School District. Ravens Coach Brian Shay will next take his team to the ITV (channel 16) studios in San Diego to participate in the county championships for the first time in school history April 26. Canyon Crest will face off against the champions of the City, Grossmont, and Sweetwater leagues. The Ravens’ semifinal match will air live at 5 p.m. If victorious, CCA will play in the title match at 7 p.m. The North County Academic League playoffs involved the top two finishers from its four divisions. Canyon Crest’s road to the league championship began with a firstround victory, 176-60, over Inland Division winner, Rancho Bernardo. The Ravens, runner-up in the Coast Division, went on to defeat the North Division champ, Rancho Buena Vista, 136-70, in their semifinal. The Longhorns had downed Valley Division runner-up, Fallbrook, 99-58, in the first round. Torrey Pines, winner of the Coast Divi-

Del Mar resident provides unique perspective in book ‘A Scientist’s God’ BY KATHY DAY Jerzy Lewak took a while getting to writing his book, “A Scientist’s God,” which he says gives undeniable proof of the existence of God and spirituality. In fact, it took 55 years for the seeds planted in college in 1957 to grow into the 100-page Kindle book. The 73-year-old Del Mar resident, who has more than 50 years of experience in theoretical physics, electrical engineering and computer sciences, was raised a Catholic and still attends services. “I believe very strongly … but I don’t agree on many points,” he said. “Spirituality is more important than religion.” It was his scientific background and discussions while in college in England that first focused his thoughts on God and spirituality. “Discussions with others convinced me then that most do not see things the way I do,” he said. More recently, he considered inadequate “publications of decla-

Where to obtain Lewak’s book “A Scientist’s God: New Arguments for the Existence of God and Our Soul. A scientist’s personal exploration.” Published as a Kindle book, it may be borrowed or purchased for $9.99 at the Amazon Kindle store. Web and blog Note: Lewak hasn’t blogged much, he says, because he’s been busy with other activities. rations and reasonings by some atheistic scientists and the published arguments against such atheistic arguments by other scientists.” Lewak, who joined the faculty at UCSD in 1966 and took early retirement in 1991 from his post in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is all about science — from teaching it to starting two software companies and having “about 10 patents, several more pending and to be written.” His companies include Nisus Software, which he started in 1984 about the time the first Mac computers hit the street. Nisus was the “first windows software,” made to be used on

IBM personal computers, he said. “We were trying to get into educational software because it was so bad,” he recalled. The second company, also still in existence, is SpeedTrack, a company working on a way “for all users of databases to navigate through data to the contained information.” And while he’s still involved with both companies and his many new discoveries, he said, the recent spurt of writings by Richard Dawkins and Nobel Laureate Herbert A. Hauptmann “who deride with disdain and ridicule a belief in God and our spiritual nature” fired up his desire to set the

record straight, he wrote in a press release about his book. His aim is to help people understand how science, the belief in God and “our spiritual nature,” are compatible, he said. “One example is the proof of our spiritual nature — the fact that we are not just machines, as many scientists seem to treat us,” he wrote in an e-mail, outlining the details of his writing. “The fact that our subjectivity, the experiences we have and are conscious of, cannot be a material property because they cannot be detected objectively. “We must distinguish between objective truth and subjective truth. The foundations of all objective studies is physics. It deals only with matter and its properties. Any property of matter must be physically detectable and measurable using physical instruments. Detection of any property of matter cannot rely only on statements made by, or reactions of humans.” The Polish-born scien-

Jerzy Lewak tist, who was deported by the Soviets to Kazakhstan, then escaped to Teheran and went to Tanzania before being educated in England, goes into a lengthy discussion about how he reaches his conclusion, summarizing by saying, “All our subjectivity, all our individual experiences, are non-material so I call them spiritual.” He also argues that “believers and disbelievers are really both believers in a creator of all reality, but believers claim it is an intelligent, purposeful and all powerful creator God, whereas disbelievers claim, often only by implication, that it is an unintelligent, purposeless, dumb ‘machine.’ Both tenets are based on belief.” Continuing that thought, he said, “The book points out that believers in

God can answer our important subjective questions and millions of otherwise unexplained human experiences, whereas believers in a dumb machine do not have a chance.” Part of the book focuses on “out-of-body experiences,” another topic that Lewak has studied in depth. “There’s no credible evidence I’ve been able to find that contradicts the reality of the out-of-body experience,” he noted. “If there is anything, I would be willing to read it.” When he’s not trying to prove the existence of God and spirituality, Lewak likes to solve problems in software engineering. But he’s also active outdoors, as well, enjoying cycling and daily bodysurfing — without a wetsuit and unless it’s been raining. He also likes reading and puzzles — “but only puzzles that are real. I stop myself from puzzles that the only satisfaction is that I solved it.”

SD City Council proclaims “Imagination Club Day� for Torrey Hills School Community Service Club veloping their public speaking and leadership skills. They were also exposed to a host of guest speakers on topics from climate change to the importance of meditation. Outside of school club members engage in numerous outings, including cleaning up Torrey Pines State Beach, feeding homeless people in Ocean Beach on Thanksgiving, visiting an elderly home and the Humane Society, donating money to a foster home and other outreach activities. The girls have experienced two years of personal growth and have learned how to speak in public, be a better citizen and enhance their self-esteem. “It is amazing to see how much these girls have developed over the past two years,� said Club Advisor Orit Ostrowiak. “They are better people and citizens as a result of being in the Imagination Club. They are now equipped with skills that will serve them as women leaders in business, politics and anything they choose to do in life. I can’t wait to see who they become. I know that the time will come in the not-too-distant future when they will remember what they did at the Imagination Club, and how it influenced who they are.� Torrey Hills Principal Barbara Boone added, “I am so pleased that our students have been actively engaged with our community through the Imagination Club. Watching their eyes light up and seeing their excitement and energy in the meetings is inspirational to all educators!� The San Diego’s proclamation of the Imagination Club Day (attached) highlights the history and activities of the club, and is created by action of the San Diego City Council, declaring April 24, 2012, The Imagination Club Day.

The Torrey Hills Imagination Club was honored at San Diego City Hall with a proclamation for the San Diego City Council, led by Council Members Marti Emerald and Sherri Lightner, declaring April 24 Imagination Club Day in the city of San Diego. The fourth and fifth grade girls who started and are members of the club were honored for their social action activities and their commitment to developing the leadership skills and time they’ve spent giving back to their community. “These young ladies deserve recognition for their commitment to growing as leaders in school and engaging as volunteers in their larger community,� said City Council member Marti Emerald. “By helping others in the community, members of the Imagination Club serve as role models for girls throughout San Diego. Added Council member Sherri Lightner, “This Imagination Club is not only about picturing a better world – it is a about creating one. The energy, inspiration and enthusiasm of these young women are something that we all should aspire to.� The Torrey Hills Imagination Club was inspired by a young girl’s imagination about creative ways to learn about and get involved in the community. Its motto, Where Imagination and Friendship Become One, has led to a safe, inspirational, lively forum for young girls to explore and imagine beyond their classroom walls into the heart and soul of the community where they live and play, and beyond. Part of their efforts included the creation of their own website, www.torreyhillsimaginationclub.wordpress. com, where club members can share ideas, photos, insights and skill-building tips. The Imagination Club meets every Monday at lunch recess where fourth and fifth graders dedicate their free time to de-

‘Hyper-focused’ bestselling author revisits popular character from ‘Gone Baby Gone’ Editor’s Note: Award-winning writer Dennis Lehane was the guest speaker at the April 19 luncheon of the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society at The Grand Del Mar. He is the author of nine novels, including “Mystic River,” “Gone Baby Gone” and “Shutter Island.” The annual sixevent luncheon series is sponsored by Northern Trust, the RSF Literary Society, the RSF Community Center and this newspaper. The next luncheon on Friday, May 18, will feature writer Simon Sebag Montefiore and his book “Jerusalem.”

BY JOE TASH Patrick Kenzie isn’t the toughest or bravest private detective — he once admitted that “circus dwarfs could kick my ass.” Kenzie — the fictional creation of writer Dennis Lehane — never served in the U.S. Special Forces or learned martial arts. But the hard-boiled private eye does have one defining characteristic — he never backs down. “If you give your word, the inability to break your word is to me a heroic quality, even if it means it’s going to bring pain in other aspects of your life,” said Lehane. “I’d like to think there were more people in the world whose word was their bond.” Lehane, the author of nine novels including “Gone Baby Gone,” “Mystic River” and “Shutter Island,” the latter three of which were made into feature films, spoke Thursday, April 19, to the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society at the Grand Del Mar resort in Carmel Valley. Before his talk, he granted an interview to this newspaper in the library off the resort’s lobby. Lehane splits his time between Boston and Florida’s Gulf Coast. He and his wife, Angie, have two daughters, a 3-year-old and an infant born in March. Lehane — like his character, Kenzie — was born in Dorchester, a working class section of Boston. As he struggled to become a full-time writer, Lehane worked a series of jobs ranging from counselor for mentally handicapped and abused children, to waiting on tables, driving limos, clerking in a bookstore and loading tractor-trailers, according to his bio. Lehane’s short hair was specked with gray, and several days’ growth of beard stubbled his cheeks. He wore a sport coat over a dark T-shirt, and his speech

Ladies, If You Love Shoes, You MUST SEE This Revolutionary New Product !!! Every-Sole-Often™

Author Dennis Lehane with chapter coordinator Kelly Colvard. Photo/Rob McKenzie bore the accent of his Boston roots. His latest novel, “Moonlight Mile,” is a sequel of sorts to “Gone Baby Gone,” in which Kenzie and his wife, private detective Angie Gennaro, search for a missing 4-year-old girl. They find her, but agonize over whether to return her to her drug-addict mother. In “Moonlight Mile,” Kenzie and Gennaro are asked to once again find the same girl, now a teenager, who has gone missing for the second time. In the process, they run up against Russian mobsters, petty crooks and gunfire. At one point, Gennaro tells her husband to drop the case because of the danger it poses to their own 4-year-old daughter. He refuses, telling her, “You know who I am. You knew the minute you convinced me to do what Beatrice (the missing girl’s aunt) asked that I would never stop until I found Amanda again. And now you tell me it’s over? Well, it’s not. Not until I find her.” “Moonlight Mile” is Lehane’s sixth booth featuring Kenzie and Gennaro. After “Gone Baby Gone,”

Lehane said Patrick Kenzie “stopped talking to me for 11 years.” When Kenzie began “chatting” with him a few years back, Lehane said, he realized the new novel would allow him to write about the financial meltdown that began in 2008, and the difficult times faces by working Americans. Along with his novels, Lehane has written for the television show, “The Wire.” He said that when he decided to become a writer, he felt he could not allow himself to fail, because he would not be able to face his friends and family. “I was so hyper-focused. I knew there was no way back. If I missed, I was gonna land with

one hell of a thud,” he said. In many of Lehane’s books, characters face what he called an “irreconcilable dilemma.” “That’s where I find the dramatic heat,” he said. He equates such difficult decisions to being a parent who must discipline a young child. Even though the lesson may be important for the child to learn, he said, “You feel like the worst monster.” Still, he said, life is full of such unpleasant decisions. “Welcome to adulthood,” he said. While he loves to write, he can’t stand blogging or social media, because he wants the focus to on his work, not on himself. “I like to hide behind my stories,” he said. Lehane’s next novel, “Live By Night,” the tale of a young gangster during Prohibition, is due out in October. For more on Lehane, visit

The ClearChoice team of specialists provides 21st century solutions to people struggling with dentures or bad teeth.

WHY SUFFER WITH DENTURES? For centuries, removable false teeth, or dentures, have been used to replace missing teeth. But denture-wearers report that many undesirable side effects come along with this less-than-ideal solution: Dentures are uncomfortable to wear and often slip or click; they can cause bad breath, and require ongoing and inconvenient maintenance; they often result in a weak bite, a fake-looking smile DQGDQRYHUO\DFWLYHJDJJLQJUHĂ&#x20AC;H[ Care and comfort aside, those with dentures also are prevented from eating many of the foods and participating in many of the activities they enjoy. With todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s science, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply no reason for anyone to struggle with dentures. In fact, many of the problems denture wearers struggle with can be solved in just one day* with the help of your ClearChoice team of dental implant professionals.


5)&40-65*0/*4%&/5"-*.1-"/54 Dental implants provide far better results than do dentures, because implants can prevent potential bone loss. Because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re anchored into the jawbone, the fusion of the implant and bone provides stability, just as the natural teeth did. Implants perform and are cared for just like natural teeth! If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re missing some or all of your teeth, dental implants can stimulate the bone, protect against atrophy and help preserve your natural facial features.

LAMA continued from page 4 “We have to sensitize our economists … that changes are happening now,” Ramanathan said. While advocating respect for long-held traditions, the Dalai Lama said humanity also must face “today’s reality,” and care for the planet in the same way a bird would its nest. “Our survival depends on it,” he said. “It is wrong just to exploit as much as possible without care.” Asked by a member of the audience how one can have a calm, rational debate about climate change with those who deny its existence, the Dalai Lama said the key is to “have respect” and “listen” to the other side. During the UCSD event, the Dalai Lama occasionally consulted a translator by his side. Though portions of his talk were lost in translation, the audience seemed to comprehend the general message he wished to convey. “It’s kind of like listening to Shakespeare, where your ear adjusts, and then you get it,” said Michelle

Tiernan, following the UCSD event. University donor Blake Harper said he has long admired the Dalai Lama and found the presentation “fantastic.” “The two scientists were so brilliant in their thinking on environmental issues, and the Dalai Lama just brought a whole different attitude (with his) spiritual background,” Harper said. Tiernan said she admired how the Dalai Lama brought “secular education in line with people’s religious beliefs, “honoring all paths and all faiths.” Environmental engineering student Kingston Hon said he was surprised by how informed the Dalai Lama is on climate change. “I didn’t know what knowledge he could bring to the table about environmental issues, but surprisingly enough, he did have a lot of wisdom pertaining to the situation we’re in,” Hon said. “I always thought he would be kind of distant from everybody, but you could sort of relate (to him), like your grandfather. He has an aura about him that you just respect, but at the same time he’s still very

humble, still very human,” “He’s like Yoda,” added UCSD political science major Hannah Bernabe. Sierra Stevens-McGeever, who is studying marine biology at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, said she liked that the Dalai Lama repeatedly underscored the concept of shared humanity. “Some people are starving and some people are trying to get the biggest, baddest house and the craziest car, but it’s not really what’s important when it comes down to it,” she said. “We do share this world and our pollution is affecting people in other parts of the world that don’t have the luxury of driving a car around, but they’re still breathing in polluted air.” Student Jesse Traller, who is studying algae biofuel research, said she liked that the Dalai Lama called for engaging in civil discourse with climate change denialists. “As long as you address them in a harsh way, like I found myself doing last night — (while) talking to somebody about global warming — nothing’s going to ever come across and you’ll never work through

your issues,” she said. “I think the first key is to respect others. “Like what Richard Somerville said: Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts,” Stevens-McGeever added.

TECHNOLOGY continued from page 5 as a classmate makes changes. In addition to writing and reading (including eBooks), the tools are used to tap into nearly every subject, social studies to math. Teachers take advantage of educational “apps” like Monkey Fractions or one on idioms that children loved so much that the teachers heard from parents that they requested to download it for their own devices and continue using it at home. Moran works closely with the teachers to make sure the teachers use the most educational apps that make sense with the school’s core standards. Classroom management is key with these tools, Moran said. Students are given rules and they stick to them. Students are instructed “iPods up” or “iPods down” and students follow the rules for fear of losing the privilege. The students respect the equipment and they have had no broken devices in three years. The whole classroom learns together—teachers have a pad of paper at the front of the classroom where students can write down different tricks or tools they learned that day to share with the class. “It changes the way a classroom looks and works together,” Moran said. In Colleen Gaines’ third grade class last week, students were in a rotation of five applications on their iPods: a read-aloud app, the Sticker Shop where students learn about money and deci-

mals and Sketchy, where students write a story using their vocabulary words and are able to illustrate it. As they worked, Gaines circulated to work with students one on one on editing some of their writing. “I really like it, it doesn’t take the place of regular curriculum it’s just another piece you add in,” said Gaines, who uses the iPods in class about four days a week. In Courtney Masick’s class, the students were working on stories they had written with vocabulary words. Masick has them use the iPod’s voice recorder to read their stories aloud without self correcting and then listening to it in order to make edits. “It helps me recognize what I’m doing in my writing and what I can do to make it more interesting,” said third grader Lyric Bledsoe. Fellow student Kaden Michaels said the voice recorder also helps their reading skills. “If you’re reading like this,” said Kaden, imitating a slow, boring monotone, “You can tell. You can tell if you need to speak louder or quieter.” Kaden’s favorite app they use is Freddy Fractions, where they learn about fractions, decimals and percentages. Students Dominic Khattar and Reinhard Bartsch also prefer the fractions app. Lyric likes Chicktionary, a game with letters that you have to use to make a word. Masick’s class also uses a story kit to write their story with illustrations—Masick said some students choose to illustrate every page, some every line, but all are required to have at least four pages. “This is round two for me and it’s as wonderful as it was last year,” Masick said. “I’ve just added more

and more layers, working on their reading, writing and creating and taking it to another level… It’s terrific, we’re really lucky to have these.” New this year are the iPods, rotating through the fourth grade with teacher Tiffany Kinney. So far using the new devices have been successful. As the students were ready to start a novel last week, Kinney had the children looking up vocabulary and working in pairs in Google docs. The students had to find words with multiple definitions and identify what definition might be used in the book, which takes place in the 1840s during a sailing expedition. “They’re all very engaged and enthusiastic about using the tool as a learning device, not looking up words in a bound dictionary,” Kinney said. “This is their world, this is how they’re going to look up words from now on.” Learning about reliable online sources starts early on in their education, Moran said. “Reliable sources and responsible use are all part of digital citizenship,” Moran said. “They learn just because it’s on the Internet, it doesn’t make it a fact.” The students have used an app on their iPad to assist their learning about rocks and minerals, with quizzes at the end that they have to pass to unlock a next quiz. Another app has them launching cupcakes “Angry Birds”-style to hit the correct solution for a math problem. When they play as a class, the students get a kick out of Kinney’s cupcake launching skills—hers aren’t as honed as the children’s. “It has been amazing to watch the students learn and my teaching has obviously changed, it’s just been really amazing,” Kinney said.

Coastal community band unites generations, concert to be held April 29 BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

Some of the best seasoned musicians in the San Diego area play for the Coastal Communities Concert Band (CCCBand), and they are showing high school students in Del Mar and nearby areas that you can play music for the rest of your life — and be good at it. Approximately 30 musicians from the San Dieguito Union High School District, chosen by their band directors, will join the Coastal Communities Concert Band for a concert of popular music on April 29, at 2 p.m., at San Dieguito Academy in Encinitas. “Many of our members have played for decades, and many are professional musicians,” said Del Mar resident Lucy Zizka, who has played bassoon in the band for five years. “It’s really an honor for the kids to play with us … We get letters from parents and students thanking us for the experience.” Twelve of these students will also be auditioning for scholarships from the CCCBand, and these awards will be

presented at the concert. “Part of our mission statement is to enhance music education, and this is a big reward for the really good kids,” Zizka said.

One of the awards is in honor of the late Don Caneva, who was a well-known and highly respected former CCCBand director. Last year’s Caneva Scholarship winner, Ashley Kim, will also perform a flute solo with the band, directed by Robert Fleming. Fleming, a retired marching band director from Arizona State University, commutes to San Diego from Arizona each week to direct band rehearsals. Beginning with 14 members, the nonprofit adult community band, comprised of experienced musicians who are attorneys, doctors, engineers, school teachers, professional musicians and others, has grown to more than 85 members who reside throughout San Diego County. The band is housed under the San Dieguito Adult School, and although band members enroll as a class, auditions are still necessary and the band generally stays full. Tickets will be available at the door or in advance by calling Kris Sims at (760) 436-6137. For more information on the band, visit San Dieguito Academy is located at 800 Santa Fe Drive, Encinitas, CA 92024.

TPHS golfer wins Under Armour®/ Hunter Mahan Championship After a rainshortened nine-hole final round, TPHS senior Ryan Burgess finished at a 6-over-par 182 to win the Boys Division of the Under Armour®/Hunter Mahan Championship, held April 13-15 at the Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, Tournament Texas. champion Due to weather delays, the final round Ryan was shortened to nine Burgess holes, where the Boys Division played Nos. Photos 12-18, 1 and 2 at par courtesy 34 (3,218 yards). The American Boys Division 45-hole Junior Golf Association par was 176. Conducted by the (www.ajga. American Junior Golf org) Association, the Under Armour®/Hunter Mahan Championship was a 45-hole stroke play competition played on the par-71 Gleneagles Country Club. The event features 48 boys and 23 girls, ages 12-18, from 13 states and four countries. The Boys Division played the course at 6,837 yards while the Girls Division played the course at 5,971 yards. Burgess, who was in the final-round leader group at this event in 2011, led by two strokes heading into Sunday’s final round. He was able to finish the shortened nine-hole final round with a 3-over-par 37 to secure his first AJGA victory. “It feels great to get a win,” said Burgess, who is joining Southern Methodist’s golf squad in the fall. “It helped a lot [playing in this event last year] to play in the wind because the wind was really high. It taught me to handle my nerves and to not get upset when I get a bogey here or there.” For more information about the Under Armour® / Hunter Mahan Championship, visit — Story courtesy of the American Junior Golf Association (

Torrey Pines student Michael Chodorow earns Eagle Scout rank Torrey Pines High School senior Michael Chodorow attained the rank of Eagle Scout on March 28. Michael, a member of Troop 765 from Carmel Valley, built a compost bin at the request of the Biology Department at Torrey Pines High School. The charter organization is St. Therese of Carmel. Michael’s project consisted of clearing the area of weeds and debris prior to constructing the compost bin, plus the addition of water-tolerant plants for beautification. Twentyfive volunteers from Troop 765 also participated in the endeavor, and more than 200 hours went into the project that Michael supervised. Michael started as a Tiger Cub in Pack 720 and earned his Arrow of Light before joining Troop 765 in 2005. Michael has held offices in the troop as Senior Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader, Troop Guide, Troop Instructor and, most recently, as the SPL for the troop’s Hawaiian Adventure at Camp Pupukea last summer. Michael has earned 43 merit badges, participated in over 75 nights of camping and contributed over 200 hours in community service projects. Michael is also a member of Crew 42, the coed high adventure

arm of the scouting program. Michael enjoys camping, cooking, and rifle and shotgun shooting, earning various awards from the Winchester National Rifle Association. Michael will be attending his seventh summer scout camp this year at Emerald Bay Scout Camp, Catalina, as a Boy Scout, but will be leaving as an Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 765 as he turns 18 while at camp. He plans on pursuing a career in culinary arts after Michael Chodorow graduation in June. Michael’s Eagle Court of Honor will take place on May 5 at Torrey Pines High School.

SDJA’s ‘Walk to End Genocide’

Amazing Upgrades*

In collaboration with Jewish World Watch, San Diego Jewish Academy held a Walk to End Genocide April 22, which was organized by a group of 9th and 10th grade students. The walk was held to raise awareness about the mass atrocities occurring in Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. A group of San Diego Jewish Academy (SDJA) students formed an End Genocide Club two years ago after learning about the genocides occurring in Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo in a Judaics class. The club originally started selling rubber bracelets with the statement “Decide to End Genocide” to raise funds for the victims of genocide in Africa. The group then began seeking other ways to further its mission and decided to hold a Walk to End Genocide and approached the Jewish World Watch for support. With April being Genocide Awareness Month, the group began promoting and organizing the walk to raise awareness, hope and funds to help the survivors of genocide. Visit

Solana Beach resident’s invention ‘The Wisp’ addresses the problem of bunker sand on the golf course green BY KAREN BILLING Solana Beach resident Eben Dobson, who is on a mission to educate the world of golf, is asking players to pitch in and lend a hand with the everyday maintenance of golf courses. He’s invented a new golf course tool called The Wisp, a universal solution to the problem of bunker sand on the green. Dobson, a financial advisor turned entrepreneur, believes that his Wisp, a lightweight, 4-foot-tall push broom, will clear the way for a new golf course etiquette. Sand out of the bunker is an impediment to the next player who comes through and there has never been a methodical solution. Some players may use a hat or a towel to remove sand out of their own line of putt, but that doesn’t help the person that comes after them. “My theory is that if you hit sand out of the bunker, use a Wisp so the next player won’t have to deal with it,” Dobson said. Using the Wisp means that the course is the same for everyone, keeping the game fair so the first group through in the morning encounters the same conditions as the last foursome. Local golfers may have seen Wisps at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club. Dobson has also seen his Wisps implemented at Wilshire Country Club in Los Angeles. His dream is not so much to turn on the Masters Golf Tournament one day and see a pro Wisping the green at Augusta—rather, he’d like to be driving by his local municipal course and see an Average Joe golfer using his etiquette because he recognized the benefit of it. “It’s a paradigm change,” Dobson said. “Adding something to the history of the game that hasn’t been thought about.” Dobson spent months designing the specific bristle that accomplishes what he’s trying to do. The Wisp was specifically built to handle the different major grasses used on courses. It won’t harm the grass and, in fact, mimics the practice of “topdressing,” in which course superin-

The Wisp is a new golf course etiquette tool designed by local resident Eben Dobson. Courtesy photo tendents apply a mixture of sand and fertilizer to the greens to quicken healing or growth. The Wisp drops sand into the canopy so it’s actually good for the green. Dobson said he knew it would be challenging to sell a product that wouldn’t benefit the consumer directly—it’s an etiquette tool. He hopes people will be knocking on doors of course superintendents and golf pros to ask for Wisps at their club or home course. He said he thinks it could be the kind of tool that could be found on any course, just like a bunker rake. The Wisps could be on every greenside bunker, about one to two a hole. Of course, the Wisp won’t be effective unless everyone learns and understands the etiquette of leaving something better for someone else. And Dobson says that plays right into what golf is about, a game that prides itself on maintaining core values, respect and integrity. “Course care etiquette needs to be revitalized and the Wisp is just one of the things that can be used as a platform to re-energize a lost values system,” Dobson said. “It’s so easy to respect the course, do it right and take care of it.” To learn more, visit

Del Mar Hills Academy collaborates with its first â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Artist in Residenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A local artist is joining forces with the students at Del Mar Hills Academy to create a piece of public art, as well as an interactive educational tool.

GORDON CLANTON North Coast columnist The race for mayor of San Diego is important, not only for voters in Del Mar Heights, Carmel Valley, and La Jolla, but also for residents of all communities within reach of this newspaper. The mayor is not only CEO of the city of San

Diego but also chief spokesperson and cheerleader for the San Diego region — as we learned from a recent episode of “South Park.” Mayor Jerry Sanders is termed out. The open seat attracted four political heavyweights. They met recently in a mayoral forum at the Old Globe Theater in Balboa Park. The stage space was tall and well lighted, framed by photos and paintings of great theaters and museums of the world — appropriate to the evening’s focus on how the next mayor will support art and culture through local philanthropic and nonprofit groups. Moderators Gloria Penner (KPBS grande dame) and Scott Lewis (Voice of

San Diego) were adequate in their roles, mercifully less intrusive than Juan Williams who moderated a subsequent forum at USD. Three Republican candidates stepped to the podiums: DA Bonnie Dumanis, Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, and Councilman Carl DeMaio. Democratic Congressman Bob Filner participated from Washington via audio hookup. The sound system was excellent, giving the impression that Filner’s well-amplified voice was the voice of God, spilling down from above, deus ex machina. All four candidates portrayed themselves as friends of the arts. All supported continuation of current city

What kind of ‘sport’ allows only one side to be armed Mitt Romney and other prominent Republicans were on the major TV channels last week making speeches at the National Rifle Association, extolling the virtues of hunting as one of our most noble and virtuous sports, an integral part of Americanism and inherent right of every American. Just what in the hell is noble, virtuous and sporting about grown (wanna-be macho) men with high-powered rifles shooting magnificent birds out the sky and innocent deer in the forest like they are despicable creatures who have no right to be there, although they were put there by the same God who created the shooters, who would claim that God gave them the right to kill any non-human creature just for sport? But what kind of “sport” allows one side to be armed and the other not...isn’t that beyond the definition of sport? Isn’t it simply unprovoked murder for the gratification of the murderers? What is the difference between hunting today and the Christians vs. the Lions in the Colosseum centuries ago? Hunting wasn’t subjected to such questioning when food was available no other way, but those times are long gone. Actually, there is an over-abundance of food today with tons of it wasted every day. While causes like PETA are labelled ex-

tremist nut cases, especially by those who support the principles of the National Rifle Association while waving the American flag. In the televised speeches made last week by politicians, all of them Republicans although there are millions of Democrat hunters, I heard the words “hunters, shooters and sport” mentioned again and again with exuberant pride, as though they are nationally accepted synonyms for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If that is part of the Republican party platform, I would never sign it. I think mine is a point of view, that if put up for discussion and vote by the public, the party would find there are millions of people it wants under its tent who would agree with me. But don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. Which means Americans like me will have to go along with the status quo because it is so deeply and strongly entrenched — by murderers who see themselves as proud (make that arrogant) Americans, and anyone who opposes them is a nut case. Or is that how it has to be? Does the silent majority have no choice but to remain silent and allow an intrinsic wrong to be perpetuated as an intrinsic right under the symbol of the American flag?

funding for arts and culture from the transient occupancy tax. All four also turned the discussion toward their pet themes: DeMaio’s “Roadmap to Recovery,” Dumanis’ proposed take-over of San Diego schools, Fletcher’s military service and his disdain for “playing games,” and Filner’s promise to take on downtown special interests and to stand up for the middle class. An impassioned DeMaio revealed that he was an orphan, taken in by Jesuits. Dumanis was earnest. Filner drew the most applause. Fletcher drolly promised he won’t do anything to make the San Diego weather worse.

Fletcher improved in the polls after leaving the Republican Party, just 18 days after the party endorsed DeMaio. Apparently many voters feel the best candidate for mayor is the one who doesn’t know which party he favors, who doesn’t know which end of the rope to grab in the great political and cultural tug-ofwar that will determine our future. I support Bob Filner, an old friend whom I have backed in 14 previous campaigns. Bob is smart, tough, progressive, and incorruptible. Gordon Clanton teaches Sociology at San Diego State University.

A candidate who won’t debate isn’t worth a vote In just a few weeks we will elect a new Mayor and perhaps a new Councilmember in District 1. I’ve seen several debates between the candidates for Mayor, both in person and through clips on the news and online. Each has some pros and cons, but I’m glad I had the opportunity to see each candidate convey their vision for San Diego. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the race for City Council here in District 1. I couldn’t understand why I haven’t seen any debates between the District 1 candidates, but recently I found out why listening to the Mike Slater radio show. Our current Council-

woman, Sherri Lighter, refuses to show up to debates! This is outrageous. I find it insulting that Lightner won’t participate in debates. Slater was interviewing Ray Ellis, who is running against Lightner and actually agrees to answer questions. Ellis said he asked Lightner to join him in debates but she refuses or ignores the offer every time. I won’t even consider voting for a candidate who won’t debate. Ellis is engaging the public, answering tough questions, and knows what we need to do in San Diego. Ray Ellis has my vote this June. Michelle Mansukhani Carmel Valley

‘Haste makes waste’ — especially when it comes to Del Mar Village Specific Plan Isn’t Del Mar moving too fast with their Village Specific Plan? What they are asking us to comment on and vote on in November doesn’t include required details of everything that it is supposed to per state law and the Community Plan. It doesn’t include the specifics about the parking structure, which, by state law, requires “other essential facilities proposed to be located within the area covered by the plan and needed to support the land uses described in the plan.” The parking structure is surely required to support the new intensive land uses! The Plan doesn’t include the required “Design Standards by which development will proceed.” They are planned to be adopted after we have

voted on the Plan. The Plan doesn’t include the required specific “program of financing measures to carry out all the required elements.” Which financing measures will be adopted after we have voted on the Specific Plan? These are just three major required items not included in the Specific Plan! What else isn’t? In fact, it looks to me like the Plan we are still discussing, after a lot of “public input” by the same people, is the same unchanged Plan we started out with! “Haste makes waste.” Why don’t we take the time to fully incorporate all of the required details in the specific plan before we vote on it?

CHILDCARE continued from page 1 porary basis. Both take up an entire wing of the campus and parents have concerns about overcrowding for the K-6 population and kindergartners being displaced from rooms designed for them, with bathrooms attached. In the childcare program, children up to 2 and a half are only staff children, not public. Priority is offered to employees for ages over 2 and a half with a two-week window to register before the program is opened to the public. Option A involves leaving the CDC at Sycamore Ridge, just moving it into the after- school child care building. The shift would return three kindergarten classes to their designated classrooms and leave two classrooms for growth. Principal Emily Morris said that there is the potential for four kindergarten classes next year at Sycamore Ridge, with 59 students currently enrolled for the fall and 10 packets out. The most expensive short-term option, Option B, would not be a solution for this fall but would relocate the 3-5 year old program to Ashley Falls, leaving the infant, toddlers and age 2s at Sycamore Ridge. This option would cost $356,000 to $358,900, including modernizing six classrooms to include toilets and sinks and adding a new play structure for 3 year olds. This option adds 35 parking spaces to the overcrowded lot at Sycamore Ridge and it permanently alters the classrooms at Ashley Falls by adding the bathrooms and shrinking classrooms from 845 to 720 square feet when additional casework and cabinetry is added in. Parents questioned the logic of a short term solution that permanently alters the school and essentially moves one campus problem to another school. A masters facilities plan identified 17 empty classrooms at Ashley Falls, but it appears that there are only nine. Principal Shelley Peterson said that there really are no empty classrooms at the school— even though the classrooms may not contain a K-6 section, they are being used for ESC, speech or other programs.

April 26, 2012 Parents also asked where the money would come from, especially when the district is expected to be deficit spending $3.9 million this year. Cathy Birks, assistant superintendent of business services, said the funds for pre-K licenses, an additional supervisor and furniture could come out of the enterprise fund; the sinks and the bathrooms could come out of the developer facilities fund, and the play structure could come out of the general fund. “Truthfully, as I look at this option, I’m not sure if it is the most viable,” Superintendent Jim Peabody said. In Option C, the pre school (for 3 year olds) CDC and SPED preschool remain at Sycamore and the infant, toddlers and age 2s are relocated to Ashley Falls. Option C would cost about $49,350, including licensing, an additional on-site administrator and the installation of two sinks. It adds eight parking spots to Sycamore Ridge, returns the kindergartners to their wing and allows for three classrooms for growth. At Ashley Falls, they will lose eight parking spots, add sinks to two classrooms and leave one classroom for growth. Option C has an aggressive timeline to be ready for August 2012. Funding for the sole long-term option to build a new CDC preschool is not available, but would be with the passage of the bond the district is looking at for November. “Two years from passing the bond we could get the facility done and with surplus Shores sale money we could do interim things to alleviate the pressure on either school,” Peabody said. “We’re continuing to explore all the options as we have to do the best for every child in the district.”

of visitors to the beach and Del Mar Fairgrounds in comparison to the number of residents, but she also said there is room for Del Mar to improve. “New landfills are expensive for taxpayers, difficult to site and threaten both our air and water quality,” said Leggatt, adding that more than 60 percent of waste currently going to landfills doesn’t even need to be there because it can either be reused, recycled or composted. This number comes from the California 2008 Statewide Waste Characterization Study. “For that reason,” she said, “Equinox Center commends the City of Del Mar for taking measures to increase commercial recycling and reduce waste.” To contact the North County division of Waste Management, call (866) WMRECYCLE, or visit http://northcounty.

BOND continued from page 1 ed by the May 23 board meeting. A project list for the bond would be completed by June and the board could call for the bond election on July 25. The deadline to submit paperwork to the county registrar of voters would be Aug. 10. The Dolinka Group would help the district every step of the process: Identify long-range district needs; evaluate other funding sources; prepare financial analyses assists in campaigning; and working closely with the underwriter to ensure the bond structure reflects the district’s financial and facilities goals. Neighboring San Dieguito Union High School District is also considering a GO bond this year for over $400 million for school renovation, technology upgrades and new construction. DMUSD board member Doug Rafner asked what the effect might be to have a high school district bond on the same ballot as the Del Mar school district bond. Dolinka pointed to

2008 in Victorville when they did a bond for the Victorville elementary school district and the high school district. There was also an additional bond on the ballot for the community college — all total almost $1 billion. “Everyone said there was no way it [the elementary school district bond] was going to get passed and they all passed,” Dolinka said. Dolinka said every community is unique— saying, for example, that there are some communities who never vote favorably on bonds for sports complexes and others who always vote favorably. “That’s why it’s so important to do public opinion polls,” Dolinka said. Board member Comischell Rodriguez said she is confident in the community and that initial feedback has been positive. “Our community values education,” Rodriguez said. “It goes hand in hand with our property values.”


Letters to the Editor/Opinion

One Paseo: An unmitigated disaster for Carmel Valley The truth is out. The voluminous Draft Environmental Impact Report has been released by the City of San Diego Development Services Department. Contrary to what Kilroy’s slick PR campaign continues to portray, the impacts of this proposed project are severe and would forever change our life in Carmel Valley. First of all, there is the issue of massive traffic impacts. The traffic study in the DEIR estimates the project would generate 26,961 net new trips per day. This is even more than what those of us concerned about the project had calculated. Additionally, there would be installation of two new traffic lights on Del Mar Heights Road between High Bluff and El Camino Real. All of this would result in a permanent queuing up of cars coming and going to the freeway. The DEIR states in its executive summary that “the proposed project would result in significant direct and/or cumulative impacts to transportation/circulation/parking, visual effects and neighborhood character, noise, paleontological resources, biological resources, health and safety, and historical resources.” Furthermore, it states that the significant impacts to transportation/circulation/parking and visual effects and neighborhood character cannot be reduced by the proposed mitigation measures.” So there you have it. The proposed project is too big, too dense, too out of character with the neighborhood character we love, and generates far too much traffic. With its high rise buildings, regional-draw shopping center and 150room hotel, it would forever change the character and quality of life of Carmel Valley. It would force an urban density, greater than in Los Angeles style mixed-use projects, into our midst ensnaring us in permanent traffic gridlock. Carmel Valley residents need to demand the design of an alternative lower impact project consistent with the safeguards the Carmel Valley community plan provides to them. I encourage you to attend the Carmel Valley Planning Board meeting on April 26 at 7 p.m. in the Carmel Valley Library, and to contact your city council member Sherri Lightner,, 858-484-3808, to protect your interests and our community.

The San Diego Mustangs Under 16 and Under 19 rugby teams each began their Southern California Championship quest, with quarter-final playoff matches held on Saturday at Little-Q field, home pitch for the OMBAC Rugby Club. The Mustangs U16 took on Fullerton with the U19 team up against ICEF from Los Angeles, who fielded an athletic and speedy team who had just returned from a two week rugby tour in New Zealand. In the U16 match the Mustangs started strongly with a penalty kick then converted try from a run by center Alex Lindsay. Fullerton answered back with an unconverted try. Immediately after kick-off, Mustang Aaron Mitchell rumbled 40 yards before he passed on to fellow front row teammate Michael Fogel who scored an unconverted try. The second half saw furious attack from Fullerton who fought back with two more scores, bringing them one point away from the Mustangs with minutes remaining. The Mustangs however closed out the game when Jake Goena scored a classic wingers try in the corner. Final score Mustangs 23, Fullerton 17. The Mustangs U19 opened their match against ICEF with multi-phased attacks that led to two quick tries. ICEF countered with some gutsy and athletic play and took advantage of a quick penalty tap for a try in the corner. By sticking to a disciplined game plan the Mustangs scored two additional tries to lead at halftime, 22-to 7. In the second half momentum shifted with ICEF being the aggressor and narrowed the score to six points. The battle continued yet domination by the Mustangs led to their eventual win by a score of 46-to-28. The Mustangs U19 will host the semi-final against inter-league rival San Clemente on Saturday April 28, at 1 p.m. at Little-Q Field with the Mustangs U16 travelling to play South Bay.

Accomplished professor addresses growing problem in new book ‘iDisorder’


Love for modern art keeps gallery owner Mark Quint connected to community

Book focuses on ‘Understanding our Obsession with Technology and Overcoming Its Hold on Us’ BY KATHY DAY Larry Rosen admits he’s a geek – and that he’s obsessed with technology. So, he says, he’s a perfect person to write a book about how technology affects our daily lives. His latest, “iDisorder,” offer tips on how to keep using those iPads, smart phones, computers and any of the other latest “toys” without letting them take over your life. The Solana Beach resident has been teaching at Cal State Dominguez Hills for 37 years. He currently teaches the Global Impact of Technology, a psychology class, two days a week to classes of 350 to 500 students in the campus theater and wouldn’t change the commute or the size of his classes for anything, he said. “I will never retire. I love teaching … I can clip on a microphone and be a showman.” He majored in math at UCLA but decided two and a half years in that he didn’t want to be a math major. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in psychology at UCSD. It’s easy to picture him in front of his students, an easygoing style and sense of humor. Wearing his Jon Stewart T-shirt, he says one of his goals is to get on the “Daily Show” – really, he says. Perhaps to make a point that the TV star might pick up on, he adds, “There’s a ‘Daily Show’ effect – teenagers these days are getting their news from Jon Stewart.” He’s studied that effect, and lots of others. Including the phenomenon he calls iDisorder: “Changes to your brain’s ability to process information and your ability to relate to the world due to your daily use of media and technology resulting in signs and symptoms of psychological disorders – such as stress, sleeplessness, and a compulsive need to check in with all of your technology.” He started the book with a scene in a movie theater: At the last second everyone turns “off” their cell phones. Then, in the middle, you see people surreptitiously looking to see what they’ve missed. At the end, everyone turns their phones back on. Kind of like when the plane lands on the runway, he added. As he sat in the living room of the

Mark Quint grew up in this area and went to college at the San Francisco Art Institute and then taught art in Hawaii for five years. Quint opened a contemporary art gallery in La Jolla in 1981. Quint Gallery has held more than 250 exhibitions during the past 31 years. Located on Girard Avenue next to Harry’s Coffee Shop, the gallery is currently showing work by San Diego artist Jean Lowe. Quint lends his support to the Emilio Nares Foundation, The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, and the San Diego Center for Children. He is Mark Quint also on the advisory committee of the La Jolla Community Foundation’s murals project. Who or what inspires you? All the fantastic artists I work with, including Kim MacConnel, Robert Irwin and Jean Lowe. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? My mother, who passed away last year, my girlfriend Kellie, the artist Manny Farber, Keith Richards, Robert Irwin, Sofia Vergara, Oscar Wilde — and me. What are you reading? Right now, it’s “The One: The Life and Music of James Brown.” The Godfather of Soul was one strange dude. I am also reading “1Q84” by Haruki Murakami. I am on page 720 and I keep hoping it will get better. It has not. I don’t recommend it. What is it that you most dislike? Temptation. As Oscar Wilde said, “ I can resist everything but temptation.” What is your most-prized possession? A Telecaster guitar I bought when I was 19. What do you do for fun? Hang out with my dog, play guitar, daydream, visit Kobey’s Swap Meet, and buy and sell art. What is your most marked characteristic? I like to think it is adaptability. What is your motto or philosophy of life? Keep on keeping on.

Getting down to earth at The Living Studio in Del Mar BY CLAIRE HARLIN

are Sydney LaSasso, an upand-coming designer who makes jewelry completely out of old car parts, and William Leslie, who is well-known for his sculptural lighting fixtures made from wood and paper. On April 29, from 2 to 5 p.m., The Living Studio will host a wine and cheese event for the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy and donate 10 percent of sales to the nonprofit. The Living Studio also regularly donates a portion of sales to the Helen Woodward Animal Center. To contact the shop, call (858) 259-1011 or visit


The Living Studio owner Elizabeth Levine has a passion for things that come from the earth, and it’s only half of what makes the jewelry artist so down to earth. Almost everything you will find in the Del Mar boutique is inspired by the natural world, from jewelry made of stones to terrariums to organic handmade fabrics. “There’s not a lot of bling in here,” said Levine, of Rancho Santa Fe. “I’m not into blingy things. I like more earthy and organic.” The Living Studio is a new and unique addition to the Del Mar Village. The jewelry and art boutique, located at 1011 Camino Del Mar, Suite 100, opened in October and has filled its walls with original artwork, jewelry and other collectable items by a number of local artists, including herself. She even teaches workshops on making terrariums, her specialty crafts that can be seen hanging in the window of the shop. It may come as a surprise if you saw her work, but Levine, although full of life and passionate about her craft, hasn’t always been a jewelry artist. The space was once used as her photography studio, where she specialized in photographing people with their pets. She was forced to suspend that creative outlet, however, when she was diagnosed with cancer and had trouble lifting the heavy photography equipment. Levine said treatment slowed her down, but she made the most of it. Not only did Levine start making jewelry, but she developed a business plan for the shop. “While in chemo all these ideas came to me,” she said. “All the other patients were drugged out and I was there in bed with my iPad writing my business plan.” A main aspect of the plan was to include workshops because Levine said she always loved the teaching part of photography. She holds terrarium workshops twice a week, and her shop will be offering an array of classes in May. Levine, a former healthcare practitioner who holds two master’s degrees, said she envisioned “a shop where people

(Above) Elizabeth Levine at The Living Studio. (Bottom right) Terrariums and jewelry are among the unique items offered at The Living Studio. Photos/Claire Harlin could find beautifully crafted pieces made by talented local artists and inspired by the natural world.” She said she is very selective in choosing artists to feature in the shop, and she bases her decision of both talent and how well the art fits into the earthy vibe. “I hone in on the really good artists,” she said. “Art that I think people will like.” A few of her most popular artists include Sadie Allison of Koi Design Studio, who makes fashion-forward jewelry designed to complement the earth and ocean.

Del Mar man has yet to meet his ‘match’ in world record • Former author owns more than 3.2 million matchbooks BY CLAIRE HARLIN

ing because it’s become a more common form of advertising for many establishments. “I’ve never really been a smoker; I’ve just always liked the matches,” he said. “It’s one of the cheapest hobbies around. The only two free hobbies left are matchbooks and beer coasters. And now places are coming out with toothpicks ... But there are still 50 or 60 places in San Diego that have matches.” For more information on matchcover collecting, visit To find out about joining the San Diego AMCAL chapter, contact Brassard at (858) 755-2311.


La Jolla Cultural Partners

At the age of 16, Del Mar resident Ed Brassard got caught with matches, and his mom wanted an explanation. “I was sneaking smokes, but I told her it was a collection,” he said. “So, I started collecting them.” Thirty years later, Brassard has traveled the world collecting matchbooks and his collection has grown to more than 3.2 million. He’s held the world record in the hobby for more than a decade, having gone down in history in both the Guinness Book of World Records and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. Brassard isn’t alone in his hobby — he’s one of more than 100 who are part of a community of matchbook, matchbox and match cover collectors who make up the San Diego chapter of the Associated Matchcover Clubs of California (AMCAL). Brassard is an officer in the group and holds monthly meetings at his Del Mar home. Chapters from across the state — and worldwide — also met April 1921 in North Park for the 57th annual AMCAL convention. At the event, collectors competed for prizes such as “best display” and they went “room hopping.” “It’s like trick or treat,” said Brassard. “Everyone puts out their miscellaneous matchbooks and we grab a bag and go from one hotel room to another.” For Brassard, matchbook collecting has been one of the best excuses to travel. In his first years of collecting as a teenager, he said he went to more than 44 different countries, and he’s continued to travel throughout his life, between writing books, working as a technician at General Atomics in La Jolla, and doing some modeling and acting. One of his most memorable acting roles, he said, was standing across from Richard Gere playing a bank teller in “Pretty Woman.” His book “Body for Sale” also earned him national notoriety for exposing the medical technology industry and organ trade.

Friends of Solana Beach Library to hold author presentation May 8 World record holder Ed Brassard. Photo/Claire Harlin Ask Brassard what his favorite matchbook is and he’ll ask “What category?” He has his collection organized into at least 100 categories, and he knows where each matchbook is, he said. His favorite category is national parks and caves, but there are countless categories, ranging from bars to politics to hotels to even categories for specific hotels, like the Hard Rock. How far would Brassard go for a matchbook? “I’ve run out in the middle of the road to grab a matchbook and almost got run over,” he said. “I’ve gone from here to Yosemite just for one matchbook … Anytime we collectors go to a hotel, they tell you to take one matchbook, but we empty the whole bowl. We trade, so it’s like we are grabbing one for everyone, all the other traders too.” Unfortunately for collectors, the upswing in smoking bans across the country has caused the hobby to die down, and Brassard said he has started to take up toothpick collect-

On Tuesday night, May 8, at 6:30 p.m. at the Solana Beach Library, the Friends of the Library are hosting a presentation by local author Zohreh Ghahremani who will speak about her new book, “Sky of Red Poppies.” This book is a 2012 One Book-One San Diego Selection and is a stunning and poetic tale about two girls coming of age in Iran during the 1960s. Set against the backdrop of a nation forced to mute its profound identity, it is a novel about culture, politics and the redeeming power of friendships. Zohreh Ghahremani was a dentist in another life. She studied dentistry in Iran and pediatric dentistry at London University, England. After more than two decades of practicing in the Chicago area and teaching at Northwestern University, she moved to La Jolla and became a full-time writer. The Solana Beach Library is located at 157 Stevens Avenue, Solana Beach (858-755-1404). This program is free to the public.

BLM selects proposed wild horse ecosanctuary on private and public land in Nevada for environmental analysis The Bureau of Land Management announced recently that it has selected for environmental analysis a public-private land wild horse ecosanctuary proposal submitted by Saving America’s Mustangs (SAM), a nonprofit organization formed by Del Mar resident Madeleine Pickens. The BLM will conduct an environmental analysis of the proposal under the provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 to assess the environmental, economic, social, and other effects of the proposed ecosanctuary. The BLM expects its NEPA analysis — which will include extensive public input — to be completed in approximately two years, after which the agency will make a decision about whether to enter into a formal partnership with SAM. SAM’s proposed non-reproductive, 900-head ecosanctuary would help the BLM care for the horses while ensuring healthy rangeland conditions. Under the proposal, SAM would improve and maintain fencing and water wells and oversee management of the ecosanctuary horses, which would remain under Federal ownership. SAM would also provide Western history- and wild horse-related education and promote ecotourism. For more information, visit www.

TPHS alum ‘brings Paris to you’ with free concert series BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

Torrey Pines High School alumnus Zachary Deak, 25, has been studying piano in Europe since he left Solana Beach at 18, and now he has returned to share what he’s learned with his homeland. “I’ve played in Europe, at the Chamber Music Fest in Portugal, I’ve played London, Paris, all over France really,” said Deak. “It’s difficult studying so far from home, but it’s nice to come back here and share that, bring back what I’ve learned and let people participate.” Deak is putting on a fourpart music series called “From Paris to You,” and he is literally doing just that. He already Zachary Deak played the first show of the series, sponsored by the FanFaire Foundation, in Point Loma on April 15, and he said it was so much of a success that he looks forward to his three next shows: April 24 in Carlsbad, April 28 in Rancho Santa Fe and April 29 in La Jolla. The Rancho Santa Fe concert is free and will be held at 2 p.m. at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club, located at 17025 Avenida de Acacias. To make the concert even more special for Deak, he will be performing with his girlfriend of three years, violist Virginie d’Avezac de Castera. Deak and Bordeaux-born Castera have put together a diverse program of music, from Baroque to the 20th century. The two both started their musical careers at age 5. Deak began studying piano as an Encinitas preschooler, and later got his first taste of France when his family spent a year there a little over a decade ago. “When I was 14 my dad took a sabbatical, and we went

as a family to Paris to live for a year,” Deak said. “Because of that, I got a taste of the musical world in Europe and in Paris, especially. There was so much going on there and I fell in love with it.” Deak said he also met a very influential teacher, who he returned to study under later. The FanFaire Foundation, which is responsible for the production, is a nonprofit public charity organization created in reaction to the deteriorating state of music and science education, according to the organiVirginie d’Avezac de Castera zation’s website. Deak said he is happy to put on a concert with FanFaire because it’s important to expose the public, especially kids, to the world of classical music. “So many people I’ve met, even those with no real connection to classical music, come up to me after a concert and say how much they enjoyed it. It’s universal,” said Deak. “If someone can just get there and see it, a concert can really can change lives, in terms of beauty or pleasure. It’s one of the great art forms … No matter what your level of interest is, you can’t come to classical music show and not feel something.” For more information and to see a video of Deak’s recent “From Paris to You” performance in Point Loma, visit Contact Ev Laserna at 760-6661810 for more information.

In addition, the Solana Beach resident donates his personal time and skills to two organizations: Medical Missions for Children, a nonprofit that provides free surgical, medical and dental care to underprivileged children and young adults all around the world; and the San Diego-based Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, which aids disadvantaged children and young people with physical deformities caused by birth defects, accidents, abuse or disease. Mehta — who grew up in Kenya and went to high school in the Los Angeles area — discovered his passion for

medicine during his postsecondary education. “In college, I found that I was fascinated by the sciences and biology, and I excelled in it,” he said. “That, coupled with my desire to work with people, led me to become interested in pursuing medicine.” After he earned his bachelor’s degree in psychobiology and neuroscience from USC in 1996, Mehta received his medical degree from the UCSD School of Medicine in 2000. “I was really lucky to have had an amazing mentor,” he said. “When I was a medical student, I worked with a head and neck surgeon. When I was a first-year student, she took me into the operating room and taught me how to scrub in and the nuances of complex head and neck surgery. I was captivated.” Fascinated by the different and complicated features within the face, he decided to specialize in otolaryngology/ head and neck surgery. Mehta went on to Harvard Medical School, where he completed his internship in general surgery and residency in otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) in 2006. While he was there, Mehta became interested in facial paralysis, and recognized the profound impact that it has on the lives of those affected. “During my training (at Harvard), I ended up seeing a lot of patients with facial paralysis,” he said. “It really motivated me to take the extra time and learn more about restoring facial function and symmetry.” Subsequently, Mehta elected to pursue advanced training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery/facial nerve disorders during his fellowship at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary/Harvard Medical School, which he completed in 2007. Eventually, he returned to the UCSD School of Medicine and completed a second fellowship, in otology/neu-

rotology and skull base surgery, in 2009. Mehta was then recruited by the Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla to start his practice. He became founder and medical director of the California Hearing & Balance Center/California Facial Nerve Center, and co-founder and facial plastic surgeon at BeautifySD, both in August 2009. Currently, Mehta has hospital privileges at several facilities, including Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla; Scripps Memorial Hospital, Encinitas; and Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego. He has received nearly a dozen honors and awards, and is a professional member of several academies and societies. Furthermore, Mehta has co-written a number of publications, and travels nationally and internationally to give scientific presentations. But Mehta doesn’t just travel for work. He also heads to different parts of the world — primarily Latin America — to treat congenital deformities as a part of Medical Missions for Children, an organization he has been involved with for about seven years. Each January, Mehta goes to Guatemala for seven to 10 days to treat patients with microtia. Each patient goes through one stage of surgery during one of Mehta’s visits, with the average person requiring two to three stages before treatment is completed. “It’s been incredibly successful and rewarding,” Mehta said. “My interest in medical missions stems from my childhood. I grew up in Kenya (East Africa) and witnessed firsthand the poverty and need that exists in Third World countries. I vowed that I would someday find a way to give back. The medical missions and volunteer surgeries that I do are my way of contributing what I can to those who need it.” See SPECIALIST, page B22

Call today! The West Coast premiere of The Old Globe musical ‘The Scottsboro Boys’ begins April 29. Courtesy photo

New musical tells the ‘Scottsboro Boys’ tale of denied civil rights BY DIANA SAENGER In 1931 nine African-American teenagers were riding a train to Memphis to seek work but ended up bring falsely accused of raping two white girls. They were denied an impartial jury, fair trial, fair sentencing, and effective counsel in three different trials. This human drama unfolds in the Old Globe’s West Coast premiere of “The Scottsboro Boys.” Nominated for 12 Tony Awards, the show begins previews April 29 at The Old Globe. The critically-acclaimed musical features top-notch talent performing music and lyrics by the team of John Kander and Fred Ebb. Direction and choreography is by five-time Tony Award-winner Susan Stroman, with musical direction by Eric Ebbenga and libretto by David Thompson. Portraying one on the Scottsboro Boys is Clifton Duncan as Haywood Patterson (“Twelfth Night,” “The uniVERSE Project”). Duncan, who got his start in an acting program at New York University, was performing at the Yale Repertory Theatre when he received a call from his agent. She informed him that Stroman had seen him and wanted him to audition for this West Coast premiere. Duncan was not aware of the true story at the time. “I’ve had friends tell me an actor does not choose a role, the role chooses him,” Duncan said. “I felt very fortunate to get the role in an important production, such as ‘The Scottsboro Boys.’ This kind of story was common at that time with a kind of apologizing, like with Rosa Parks or papering over the nuances of what led to the Civil Rights Movement. In the play, Hayward reveals that he was the first to go on trial and be

sentenced, and he talks about some of the actual events.” Also appearing in the musical are Tony Award-winner Ron Holgate, Jared Joseph, JC Montgomery, David Bazemore, Nile Bullock, Christopher James Culberson, Eric Jackson, Kendrick Jones, James T. Lane, Clifton Oliver, Clinton Roane and C. Kelly Wright. “Susan and her team give us confidence and for people who have accomplished so much, it’s a warm and welcoming ego-free environment,” Duncan said. “It’s a very collaborative team open to new ideas, and we’re told they are building this around us, and it’s the Old Globe production of ‘The Scottsboro Boys.’ “ Stroman, Kander and Ebb have received high praise for their talents in instilling parody and poignancy to recount a story of shocking historical events. “The Scottsboro Boys” is presented in association with American Conservatory Theater. Duncan said everyone will take something different away from the performance, depending on their background. “The show is to provoke, and the majority will be shocked and deeply moved.”

brought together to create the show: Amanda Green, music and lyrics; Trey Anastasio (of Phish fame), music; Neil Pepe, direction; Benjamin Millepied, musical staging; Zachary Dietz, music direction; Christine Jones, scenic design; Susan Hilferty, costume design; Tony Award-winner Kevin Adams, lighting design; Steve Canyon Kennedy, sound design; and Playhouse resident dramaturg Shirley Fishman. Director Pepe likes that this is a “big American musical.” “It’s about the lives of these people and the music is eclectic with rock ‘n’ roll, ballads and folksy country blues. It’s not just themed at one audience, it will appeal to everyone.” While the story of strangers coming together in Longview, Texas, each hoping to change his life or her by winning a new truck is compelling, the ensemble putting this show together have high praise for the music. Wright, Pepe, The cast rehearses La Jolla Playhouse’s world-premiere, commissioned musical, ‘Hands on A Hardbody,’ with book by Doug Wright, direction by Neil Pepe. Photo/ Dana Holliday actor Keith Carradine (who appears in the show), and Playhouse Managing Director Michael Rosenberg couldn’t say enough about the team. “This is our 70th commissioned production and what we’re doing here is unparalleled in American Theater today,” Rosenberg said. Green’s lyrics can be found in productions like “Bring It On: The Musical,” Broadway’s “High Fidelity,” and the revival of “Hallelujah Baby.” Peers consider her lyrics for Hardbody, “amazing.” “I wrote all these scenes I knew were destined for the trash bin, but I knew I’d get in return heart-stopping senti-

In addition to his huge film and TV résumé, Carradine has an impressive stage career. He said there were several factors that enticed him to do this show. “Amanda has a brilliant pedigree,” he said. “When I heard Trey was involved and heard some of the songs and then read the script, which is so completely original in every aspect, I couldn’t wait to be a part of it,” Carradine said. “This production is like lightening in the bottle. There’s something so fresh about it, and the collaboration that is bringing it together. I haven’t come across anything in many years that captures this moment, and I’ve done a lot.”

Authors will gather for unique ‘reading’ event UC San Diego’s Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Rae Armantrout and San Diego Citybeat’s Edwin Decker will read from their works on Wednesday, May 2, in the Museum of the Living Artist, 1439 El Prado, Balboa Park.

BY DIANA SAENGER The La Jolla Playhouse’s April 27 season opener is based on the 1997 documentary film, “Hands on a Hardbody,” about contestants who compete in an endurance/sleep deprivation contest to win a brand new hardbody truck. After seeing a short preview of the musical it’s apparent this production hits the high notes in every way — solid story, amazing songs and terrific actors. “Hands on a Hardbody” is a world-premiere musical commissioned by The Playhouse for Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright (“I Am My Own Wife,” “Creditors”). Wright said he got the idea after seeing the documentary. “It’s a wonderful, sly piece of filmmaking because once you start watching, you think, ‘what a ridiculous premise,’” he said. “But then you see these profound truths emerging about where we are, our loss of identity and sense of squandered opportunity. Yet, we also see our spirit, resourcefulness and tenacity, so I felt like it was a stunning portrait of our country in this moment, and I knew it was stage worthy.” In addition to Wright, an incredible team has been

Her most recent collection, ”Money Shot,” was published in February 2011. • Decker is a freelance journalist and columnist whose work has appeared in magazines and newspapers across the country. His satiric and sometimes controversial column, “Sordid Tales,” runs every other week in San Diego CityBeat. Decker’s book ”Barzilla and Other

Psalms,” published by Puna Press, was nominated for a 2007 San Diego Book Award and his performance piece, “Questioning Innocence is Questionable,” won the grand prize for the San Diego Visual Arts Performance Slam.

NORTH COAST continued from page B1 PROFESSOR Psychologist and blogs for Psychology Today. Rosen, 62, first became interested in computers as a little boy, noting that when his parents – mom taught high school math and dad was an accountant — took him to a college day at UCLA, he went directly to the computer lab and hung out there. “I write about stuff because it’s about me – covertly or overtly,” he said. “I sleep with my phone next to me and play Words with Friends – that’s becoming compulsive.” For those like him who can’t “drop their technology,” he said it’s important to develop strategies to deal with the effects of being constantly connected. “We are all overloading in a variety of ways, which is not our fault,” he said. “It’s not about giving up your iPhone for Lent. It’s about moderation in smart ways.” His writing is based on extensive research. He’s unusual among state university professors, he noted, in that he runs a lab on campus, utilizing undergrads as researchers. Currently there’s a team of four faculty members and about 10 students. “I have a low boredom threshold,” he said with a chuckle. “We usually have five to 10 projects going on and can start a new one any time. They’ve looked at how Facebook is used, texting and are now studying sleep disorders. He said it seems that using your cell phone an hour before you go to sleep has the biggest impact. “It doesn’t matter the content, it’s the phone,” he said, adding that laptops and tablets don’t seem to have the same impact. He said that it’s important to understand how the brain works when considering the impacts of technology. “If we peered inside and saw the switching going on – ding, it’s an email, what was that – the brain is being constantly bombarded,” he said. “We have to learn how to reset the brain.” With a background in parent education and child and adolescent development, he travels extensively, giving lectures around the world – most recently in Mumbai, India, and is headed for Washington, D.C., in May and Australia in June. While his book offers a number of ways to tackle the problem, he suggested a couple of simple solutions for when your brain gets overloaded: •Take a 15-minute break. Walk outside – and don’t take the phone. (Easy for him to say, since his condo overlooks the Pacific.) •Look at a nature book – not at nature photos online. •Take an e-waiting period. We jot things down electronically without thinking. Let it rest before you post to Facebook or send the e-mail, so your brain can calm down and you can take a look at what you wrote in a different light. •Take a warm bath, play an instrument or listen to music – but only “beautiful” music.” Look at art you consider pretty. •Have a conversation with someone else. For teachers and others in group settings – or even at dinner — where constant use of cell phones gets in the way of being focused, he recommends what he calls “tech breaks.” Everyone turns their phones face down and puts them on silent. Then after a certain period – say 15 or 18 minutes of lecture – everyone gets one minute to check their phone. Teachers, he added, can lengthen the time to 30 minutes and can use the breaks as a reward by allowing two minutes or selecting a student to be the one who monitors when the breaks are given. The twice-divorced father of four calls himself “a parent trainer at heart” and notes that it’s important to set clear behavioral objectives and reinforce the lessons. In his own life, he gets his personal “tech breaks” around Solana Beach, where he also lived while attending UCSD. He loves the casual, friendly feeling of his neighborhood and being able to walk to the Belly Up to hear a concert. But, being a bit of a night owl, he doesn’t like that it’s tough to find a place to grab a late dinner nearby. He has found other uses for technology – combining it with old rock ‘n’ roll LPs to make art works with bits and pieces of outdated computers and phones. But he uses the current “toys” to stay in touch with his “four amazing, successful kids.” With the older ones — Adam, 37, and Arielle, 34 — he most often talks on the phone. With Christopher, 24, technology is a lifeline in a special way. Now living in New Jersey and working with Johnson & Johnson, Christopher is deaf so instant messaging has been a great way to communicate, although they also use a phone “translation” service. And with his youngest, Kaylee, a senior at Yale, it’s text messaging that keeps them connected. He blames Steve Jobs for a lot of the stress that comes with constantly being tied to technology. “Darn him,” he said. “He made some of the best technology and made it all so compelling.” Acknowledging that he’s “hooked up” about 18 hours a day, he said, “I understand what it does to me, but I’m not giving it up.” ‘iDisorder’ is available at Barnes & Noble in stores, online: in hardcover or ebook.

PET CONNECTION Meet CATHY. This adorable 5 month-old Chihuahua-blend girl is a dainty little lover who wants nothing more than a human companion to cuddle with. Cathy weighs only 5 lbs., but has some surprisingly long legs on her tiny frame that love to dance around her favorite friends. She is ďŹ lled with gentle affection and the most delightful, soft puppy kisses. A single warningâ&#x20AC;Ś Her charm is undeniable and if you meet her, you will simply fall in love. She has been spayed and is up-to-date on all her vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $314 and, as with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center, is micro chipped for identiďŹ cation. As an added bonus, Cathy also comes with two free passes to SeaWorld! Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe.

Please pay attention to these foods that will boost alertness The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN I shook my head in utter disbelief when a friend blushingly told me she had locked her infant son in the back seat of her car alongside her handbag containing the car keys. Fortunately, it was cool that day so baby was not trapped in a sweltering vehicle, and roadside service came to the rescue in minutes. One month later, I again shook my head in utter disbelief when I did the same thing, minus the baby. I popped the trunk to deposit my groceries, when

the lid ricocheted, bonked me on the head, causing me to drop my keys in the trunk as I robotically slammed it shut. The doors instantly locked, activating the alarm system, so even an adept car thief could not prod open that stubborn trunk. After two hours in the parking lot, the team of frustrated roadside service guys ended up towing me to the dealership where my vehicle was connected to their computer to program the trunk to “open sesame,” and retrieve my keys and bags of rotting groceries. Why are we not as alert as we should be? Sleep deprivation, stress and poor diet are the perfect storm for these mishaps. Eating a magical combination of foods has been linked to better energy, alertness and even focus and concentration — especially for students as final exams hover. Oil and Lube Put the skids on red meat and do red snapper or other omega-3 fatty acid powerhouses instead, especially wild-caught, deep sea, cold-water ones like salmon, herring, sardines and mackerel. DHA, one of the key

omega-3s in fish, is also a vital fatty acid in grey matter, so eating a diet rich in omega-3s keeps brain cells welllubricated and vibrant, improving mood, brain wiring and cell-to-cell communications — and that translates into thinking quick on your feet. Vegans can load up on seaweed and other oceanic veggies that are also treasure-troves for keeping the brain on its toes. Nuts and Bolts The wonderful walnut, packed with alpha-linolenic acid (the plant’s version of brain-boosting omega-3s) fittingly resembles miniature hemispheres of the brain. Walnuts’ omega-3s increase cognitive functioning similar to omega-3s from animal sources by keeping the brain lubricated and in high gear, and preventing inflammation by blocking signals produced by nasty free radicals. Walnuts have also been found to hike melatonin levels, one of the sleep regulating hormones in the body. So if you’re short on zzz’s, munch on some walnuts before bedtime so you’re well-rested and alert in the a.m. Concoct a batch of sweet and savory candied walnuts and toss in your ce-

y Manos. Nguyen forwarded Edy’s records for Mehta’s review through the Fresh Start Surgical Gifts program, which Mehta has been involved with for three years. In January, Edy traveled to Antigua to see Mehta for an evaluation. Because of the extent of Edy’s ear problem and the fact that his surgery would require highly specialized equipment such as highspeed drills, microscope and nerve monitoring, Mehta recommended that Edy be treated in the United States. With the assistance of Fresh Start, Edy obtained visas, airfare and a host family in San Diego. On March 16, Mehta performed a four-and-a-

Solana Beach business Rokenbok Toy Company has been chosen by Google to join the first-ever YouTube Ambassador program, which recognizes nine businesses from around the country for their outstanding work driving business growth using YouTube. About 15 years ago, Paul Eichen left his corporate gig to start the construction toy company, Rokenbok. Until three years ago, his selling strategy was simple — about 80 percent of customers came through specialty toy stores, 20 percent through word of mouth, and zero through the Internet. When the economy shifted, specialty toy stores began shutting their doors, and Rokenbok needed a new way to connect with customers and demonstrate how the toys worked. Ultimately after testing different strategies, they found that creating videos that showed off the fun that kids had Rokenbok’s Caitlin Bigelow playing with the toys really took off. All of their videos are rocks out at the YouTube produced in-house and posted on their YouTube channel — Ambassadors event. whether it’s product demos or fun educational videos. Ambassadors were recently flown out to Google’s headquarters in the Bay Area to meet with executives and learn about other ways to grow their business online. The lucky 9 will also be featured on YouTube’s homepage.
