Fairgrounds redevelopment plan to be challenged

RSF Association board denies request to change bylaws related to condo rights BY KAREN BILLING STAFF WRITER The RSF Association board denied a request May 5 by RSF Covenant condominium owners to change Association bylaws so that condominium owners would have the right to vote and join the RSF Golf Club. In his research, RSF Association Manager Pete Smith said he found that the issue was not a new one. In a document from 1981 it was written that “the rights of owners of condominium units in Rancho Santa Fe has long been the subject of controversy.” Until 1979, individual building sites were granted one voting membership per site. A legal challenge known as the Lillian Ritt case resulted in the rules being changes to allow two voting memberships per site. The issue was last visited in 1996, when both the Golf Club and Association boards voiced opposition to the change. Currently, only two voting memberships are allowed for each condo development regardless of the number of units in the development. Those two memberships are also granted the right to join the Golf Club. There are 17 condo sub-associations within the Covenant. Of the 82 units, there are 34 units with voting rights and 48 without voting rights. See BYLAWS, page 30

Preliminary 2011-12 budget to be mailed to RSF Association members •Budget hearing slated for May 25 BY KAREN BILLING Rancho Santa Fe Association members should soon be receiving a copy of the 2011-12 preliminary budget in the mail, after it was approved by the RSF Association board at its May 5 meeting. Members can attend a budget hearing on Wednesday, May 25, at 9 a.m. at the RSF Association boardroom. The final budget will be approved at the June 16 RSF Association board meeting. RSF Association Chief Financial Officer Steve Comstock presented some of the highlights of the budget at the May 5 RSF Association board meeting: • Assessment rates will continue to be 14 cents for every $100 of accessed property value, with 11 cents going to operations and 3 cents to the open space fund. • An additional $20,000 was put into the public relations fund as the RSF Tennis Club gears up for its 50th anniversary next year. The plan is to put on a week of celebratory events and exhibitions, Comstock said, although the See BUDGET, page 30

Del Mar, Solana Beach may be part of bill that would give more control over fairgrounds BY MARLENA CHAVIRAMEDFORD STAFF WRITER Del Mar and Solana Beach may be added to a senate bill that could potentially give the cities more control over the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The bill, Senate Bill 249 (SB 249), was introduced by Senator Leleand Yee, D-San Francisco, with the intention of providing more local control over Cow Palace, a stateowned agricultural facility that is home to the Grand

National Rodeo and many other events throughout the year. Recently there have been drug-related deaths, injuries and arrests during concerts at Cow Palace, prompting concern from residents in neighboring Daley City and San Francisco. Cow Place is run by the 1-A District Agricultural Association (1-A DAA) board, which includes nine members who area all appointed by the governor — the same as the Del Mar fairgrounds, which is run by the 22nd

During the May 9 city council meeting, Hilliard said adding Del Mar and Solana Beach to SB 249 made sense because the two scenarios surrounding Cow Palace and the Del Mar Fairgrounds are so similar. “In a statement about the bill Senator Yee said: ‘the lack of representation on the Cow Palace board has resulted in decisions, especially re-

Scripps Ocean Partnership at R. Roger Rowe School art projects planned The Scripps Ocean Partnership at the R. Roger Rowe School recently announced two upcoming art projects: “Keep Track of Your Beach Toys” and “Ride the Wave for a Cleaner Ocean,” with environmental guest artist Teresa Espainola from Coronado. These projects will work with grades K-3 to create a large portable mural using beach toys and other colorful plastics that have been found on our local beaches. Students will learn a “Beach Toys” song, and will be presented with an official pledge/ certificate at the completion of this project, along with a digital coloring book about beach toys and the ocean. Students in the 4th through 8th grades will help to create a life-sized beach trash wave sculpture. This project will include a donated surfboard, and a place to stand while being photographed “surfing” the wave of plastic. These exciting projects are intended to educate the students and their parents on issues surrounding plastics in the ocean, including their effects on animal life and the marine habitats studied in the MARE program. The focus will be on empowering students to educate others about plastic in our environment, encouraging them to spread the word and become involved in the stewardship of our oceans through the care of our beaches. Beach trash sculptures will be on display during RSF School’s Ocean Weeks, May 23June 2, and for Ocean Open House June 1. The Scripps Ocean Partnership is a part of the Integrated Science program at the Ranch School, just one star in the Five-Star Education Program supported by the Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation.

RSF Toastmasters features an exciting variety of speakers and topics What exactly happens at a Toastmasters meeting? Sometimes people considering joining a Toastmasters club just aren’t sure what happens. There are two main speaking portions of each meeting. The first, “Table Topics,” gives members the opportunity to answer impromptu questions on a different topic each week. Questions depend on the theme for each meeting, such as life in San Diego, World Travels, Mothers, Spring etc. The Table Topics master poses questions to members, who have to stand up and give 1 minute answers. This teaches members to think on their feet. The next portion of the meeting features two speakers who have prepared speeches that last 5-7 minutes. Recent speeches have been about life in Iran, “Icebreaker” speeches, where new members have given their first speech introducing themselves to the club and sharing details of their lives, an interpretive reading of a story by a more advanced speaker in the club and a “sales pitch” persuasive speech about how to decrease water bill costs. As you can see, every week is a new adventure and members learn about each other and share experiences. The speeches are then evaluated by members to give encouragement and positive criticism to help the speaker improve for their next presentation. Rancho Santa Fe Toastmaster guests routinely remark they are surprised by how much fun is had. Are you looking for a supportive environment to hone your public speaking skills? Come join us! There’s no charge to be a guest! RSF Toastmasters meet Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center. Questions?

RSF psychologist releases new parenting book BY DIANE Y. WELCH Staff Writer Dr. Keith Kanner, clinical psychologist and a columnist for this newspaper, has just released a book titled “Your Family Matters” (through “Love Your Life Publishing”). Subtitled, “Solutions to Common Parental Dilemmas,” the book aims to direct parents to address the most common issues with their children, from infancy through age 18. “The book highlights what I aim to do in my practice, which is to help people better understand their children and to become better parents,” Kanner said. This is the first of what will probably be three volumes, with future releases planned to focus on broader family structures. The first book is written with chapters for moms and dads respectively. There is also a chapter on “Grandma’s House,” and the different influences that a grandparent may have on the family. Kanner is a licensed clinical child, adolescent, and adult psychologist and psychoanalyst, with more than 20 years in his field. In addition to a fulltime private practice in Rancho Santa Fe, he is an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry in the School of Medicine at the University of California San Diego where he teaches human development and also trains medical students how to better understand and relate to their patients. He also serves as the director of clinical counseling for La Jolla Country Day School in La Jolla, and is a clinical professor at The San Diego Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. His book represents a culmination of this experience. In its pages he tries to help parents understand what is going on with their child developmen-

Local clinical psychologist Dr. Keith Kanner just released a book, ‘Your Family Matters.’ tally, as well as to understand the root causes of a child’s issues so that a solution may be found. “The book aims to bring everyone together in the process,” Kanner said. While very busy with his private practice, writing and media appearances, Kanner stresses that his family comes first. Kanner has three children: Cassidy, soon to be 13; Christopher, 10; and Zachary, turning 8. As an involved dad he volunteers on the national board for KidsKorps USA and serves as a coach in his children’s respective sports. He is a big believer on parents not missing out on spending time with their kids. “These opportunities only come around once, so en-

joy it while you can. It goes too fast,” he said. It was during down time in between his professional work and family responsibilities that Kanner was able to complete the manuscript for his new book. “Writing is something that I’ve done for a while. I always have my computer on, I’m always thinking and writing on my subject,” he said. “Your Family Matters” is written from his perspective as a clinician, a doctor and, most importantly, as a dad. “I believe that your kids are your best teachers. My kids are not afraid to tell me when I am completely in the wrong, so we work together to better understand things,” he said. Kanner has a syndicated radio show and has been on local television for a number of years with “Your Family Matters.” He is also working on a possible move into the national spotlight with a 9 to 10 o’clock morning show. He stars currently as one of the 15 LifeChangers for Extra TV in Hollywood. “I’m also currently doing documentaries for television and have one reality show now in the hands of two big networks, a treatment show about kids,” Kanner explained. The pilot is called “Real Treatment,” and works with real families facing genuine issues. Kanner said that his book should help lower a parent’s anxiety, help them understand the complexity of their children, and learn how to constructively work with them. “It’s a good, practical hands-on book,” he said.

Gordon Hanson


A grounding in the ‘real world’ experiences of the poor provided vital insights in career of ‘superstar’ economist BY ARTHUR LIGHTBOURN Contributor In the field of international economics, UC San Diego professor Gordon Hanson, son of medical missionary parents, is regarded as a superstar — and one of the most productive and highly cited economists in the United States. Interestingly and significantly, when he was 21, after earning his undergraduate degree, he postponed going to graduate school until he had spent a year working among the poor in Peru and Honduras. “Before I went off to graduate school in economics, which is very mathematical and very abstract,” he said, “I wanted to have grounding in the real world experiences of people whose problems I wanted to study so I wouldn’t just get lost in the math.” Hanson was recently honored at UCSD with a Chancellor’s Associates Faculty Excellence Award for

his work in international economics and cited “as one of his generation’s pioneers who have combined original ways of investigating problems empirically with astute innovations in theorizing.” Hanson, a local resident, is the director of UCSD’s Center on Emerging and Pacific Economies. He is considered an authority on international trade and migration, economic development and foreign investment, and applying economic analysis to understanding the social implications of timely issues. We interviewed the 46-year-old Hanson in his office on the La Jolla campus of UCSD. Casually dressed on his day-off in jeans and a sport shirt, he is 5-foot-10, 165 pounds and keeps in shape surfing and paddle boarding. He is the youngest of three brothers. Both of his parents were physicians. He was born in Berkeley, Calif.,

Quick Facts Name: Gordon Hanson Distinction: Hailed as one of a handful of superstars in the field of international economics in the United States, UCSD Economics Professor Gordon Hanson, was recently honored with the UCSD Chancellor’s Associates Faculty Excellence Award for his research in the humanities and social sciences. He is director of UCSD’s Center on Emerging and Pacific Economies. Born: Berkeley, California, 46 years ago Education: A. B. in economics, Occidental College, Los Angeles, 1986; Ph.D., economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1992. Family: He and his wife, Caty (nee McGuckin), who met in college, have been married 20 years. They have two daughters: Thea, 13, a student at Earl Warren Middle School, and Carly, 11, a student at Skyline Elementary School. Interests: Surfing and paddle boarding Recent reading: “The Party: The Secret World of China’s Communist Rulers,” by Richard McGregor Favorite film: “Chinatown,” Favorite TV: “Mad Men” Favorite foods: Thai cuisine Philosophy: “I believe in constructing your own meanings and doing so successfully revolves around relationships in your life.”

while his parents were on medical furlough from 10 years of service as medical missionaries in northern Thailand. He accompanied his family back to Thailand for another six years before his parents returned to California in 1970 to enter private practice. “They needed to put the kids through college,” he said. Hanson attended Occidental College in Los Angeles where he earned his A.B. degree in economics, summa cum laude, in 1986. He applied for and was granted a Watson Fellowship. “It’s a wonderful fellowship given to graduates from liberal arts colleges that allows you to propose a project to learn unusual things about the world we live in…So I spent a year divided between Peru and Honduras working in urban shantytowns.” Later, while attending graduate school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he spent another year in Mexico working on his dissertation. He completed his doctorate from MIT in 1992. Before joining UCSD 10 years ago, he taught at the University of Texas and the University of Michigan. “People like to make fun of economists,” he said, when asked about his profession, “partly because they’ve been around for a long time.” While economists are still asking similar questions to those posed by the Scottish social philosopher and economist Adam Smith 250 years ago, Hanson said, what has changed is that economics as a discipline has matured and has tried to strike a balance between being formal, scientific and mathematical, which is needed for credibility among scholars, and trying to address real world problems.” This “trying-to-addressreal-world-problems” approach is making economics the most popular or second most popular major at most universities, he said. “And it has made economists influential in policy circles, sometimes for good, sometimes not; but you see economists playing an im-

What are there is a lot of evidence to

show that the arrival of those folks would bring strong benefits to the U.S. economy.” Currently, any Ph.D. graduate who is not a U.S. citizen is required to go through a time-consuming, expensive, often discouraging, process of dealing with immigration officials and lawyers to obtain a visa and eventually a green card. He urges streamlining of the bureaucratic process to encourage the highly skilled to stay rather than putting obstacles in their way. “Think of the immigration process as a talent search,” he advises. Hanson considers economics part of the social sciences. “We’re certainly not part of the hard sciences because there are not immutable rules of human behavior as there are immutable rules of physics and chemistry.” Economics, as he sees it, is somewhat of a cross between the social sciences and an art. “We develop models of how individuals and firms behave and how countries operate. Any model is wrong. It’s a simplification of reality that cuts corners and misses important features that make our lives special and enriching. What you hope is that the models are wrong in relatively unimportant ways and they can still give us insight to help make choices about: Is a free trade agreement between the U.S. and Korea a good idea? And what should we do about illegal immigration in the country?” Over the past several years, Hanson has addressed the politically-charged question of illegal immigration. “One of the points I try to emphasize is that, surprising as it may seem, there are some attractive things about how illegal immigration has worked in the U.S.,” he said. “It attracts people who have had to work hard to get here,” he said. Bottom line, although illegal, these determined immigrants comprise a motivated, flexible, mobile workforce that comes when and where there is a demand for their skills. “And we’ve done that See ECONOMIST, page 24

Local resident is soccer federation’s youngest licensed players agent BY KAREN BILLING Staff Writer At 20, local resident Matt Cohen recently became the United States Soccer Federation’s youngest FIFA licensed players agent in the country. Now representing London-based Cassius Management as the United States operating director, he is reaching out to players and coaches in Major League Soccer (MLS), the North American Soccer League and the United Soccer Leagues Professional Division. It’s a pretty big jump from being an intern just last year but Cohen is excited for the opportunity to help grow soccer in the states and beyond. “In the U.S., MLS is forming to be a very big league.” Cohen said. Superstars such as Thierry Henry and David Beckham transferring over to play in the U.S. have infused a sense of legitimacy to the league. U.S . teams have also fared well at the 2009 Federation’s Cup and in the 2010 World Cup,

Matt Cohen showing the world that the level of play in the United States is picking up and reaching a higher level. Cohen hopes to help U.S. players continue to make an impact nationally and internationally. “San Diego is a hotbed of talent with the local clubs such as Surf Soccer, Sharks, Nomads and plenty of others,” Cohen said. “I’m looking for those talented kids who may not have the best way of being seen…I’m only looking for the best of the best.” Cohen has lived locally his entire life, an alumni of Earl Warren and the first graduating class of Canyon Crest Academy in 2008. He will earn his degree in

sports management in a year from Grand Canyon University, an online program. Cohen has played soccer since he was 6 years old. Although now “retired,” he played for Manchester Carmel Valley and CCA’s varsity team. He realized that while he probably wouldn’t be able to play professionally, he still wanted to be involved in the sport as an agent. To pursue his goal, he aggressively sent his resume out to 100 different sports agents. With help from his dad, his package was more than just your basic resume—it included a sports ball night light representing the sport the particular agent worked in and a fan that when turned on spelled out the specific agent’s name between the blades. “I just wanted to get my foot in the door at any place,” Cohen said. His creative packaging paid off and he went to work as an intern with Max Eppel Soccer Agency, a li-

censed players agent in Newport Beach. Eppel put Cohen in touch with Richard Trafford, an agent at Cassius Management in London, who set him up with a trans-Atlantic internship. Becoming a players agent through the United States Soccer Federation is a challenging process— there are only 84 licensed players agents in the United States. Cohen estimates he studied about 80 hours for the test and flew to Chicago on March 31 to take the 20-question players’ agent exam. The questions center on different scenarios and test-takers must know all the regulations that apply for FIFA (International Federation of Association Football) regulations, international transfers and U.S. contract law. Applicants have to get 14 correct to pass and Cohen got 17 out of 20. Since getting his agent license, he’s officially become a part of the Cassius team—in a year or so he went from hoping to get his

foot in the door to all doors open wide. “I’m really happy with Cassius and I see myself growing with them,” he said. “They’ve been very helpful to me.” Cohen said he’s been told he’s got a great eye for scouting soccer talent—he reviews DVDs of players daily and is always out at games and tournaments looking for difference-makers. “I like to go out and find players with the ‘it factor,’ that when they get on the field they change the pace of the game,” Cohen said. “I find players with the potential to become a professional or players that already have what it takes.” Cohen said, of course, it would be easier with a stable of 100 clients who make him $10,000 each but he thinks he could have more success with 10-20 clients that he’s really able to establish a good relationship with. “I have a responsibility to my players that if they sign with me, I’ll give them

my time and open up every door I possibly can on their behalf,” Cohen said. “I’d rather do that for 25 outstanding players while delivering on my word, instead of 200 and making false promises. This way you can create a better relationship with your clients and people can count on you.” Cohen’s summer is about to get busy as the transfer window (the period in which teams can transfer players from other countries to their squads) begins in June in England. Cohen will travel to London to work the window for Cassius and then head back to the U.S. for the transfer window that begins on July. “I’m excited,” said Cohen. “I’m confident that I’ve built strong enough relationships with teams and I’m certain that Cassius has the right players to get teams to see their talent and sign them.” Contact Matt Cohen at (858) 353-0934 or e-mail

Documentary explores ‘price Hawaiians have paid for paradise’ Film to be shown Cross-Cultural Center at UCSD BY JOE TASH Contributor Americans think of Hawaii as a breathtakingly beautiful island chain with white-sand beaches, waterfalls, hula dancers and moonlight luaus. But to those of Hawaiian ancestry, such as local psychotherapist Hanalei Vierra, the history of the islands is much more complex, consisting of conquest, military occupation and subjugation. According to Vierra, 59, few are aware of “the price Hawaiians have paid for paradise. This is the dark side of paradise.” Vierra hopes a recently completed documentary film, called “Hawaii, A Voice for Sovereignty,” will help educate people about the history of the 50th U.S. state, and advance the cause of Hawaiians seeking to redress past wrongs. Vierra has helped organize a free showing of the film that will include native Hawaiian singing and dance performances and a panel discussion with director Catherine Bauknight, at 6 p.m. on May 24 at the UCSD Cross-Cultural Center.

The path to Hawaiian statehood stretches back to 1893, when U.S. Marines overthrew the monarch of the Kingdom of Hawaii, Queen Lili’uokalani, at the behest of American businessmen who wanted to grow sugar cane and pineapples on the islands’ fertile soil. Following the “bloodless Hanalei Vierra coup,” Hawaii became a U.S. territory in 1898, and achieved statehood in 1959. In 1993, President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional resolution of apology for the takeover. Today, many native Hawaiians are calling for sovereignty as a means of regaining control of land and protecting their cultural heritage, from language to music to dance. “It really all boils down to the land. They need land to live off of, it’s part of their culture,” said Bauknight, a Pasadena-based photojournalist who began working on the film, her first documentary, in 2005. “What happens to the land happens to the people,” Bauknight

said. “It took me a very long time to understand how serious and meaningful that is. It’s not just a cliché.” Since the overthrow, said Vierra, Hawaii has shifted from an agriculture-based economy to one dominated by military bases and tourism. People of Hawaiian ancestry are plagued by high rates of health problems, such as strokes and diabetes, along with alcoholism, homelessness and incarceration. “The experiment of statehood has benefitted everyone except the Hawaiians,” Vierra said. “The Hawaiians are now on the bottom rung of all the social ladders.” Vierra, who was born in San Bernardino, but lived in both California and Hawaii at various times during his childhood, insists his stance is not anti-American, but “pro-Hawaiian nation.” His parents, native Hawaiians who are now deceased, would not embrace his activism on the Hawaiian sovereignty issue, he conceded. His father served in the U.S. Air Force, and later worked as a civil service engineer. His parents lived in Hawaii at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor. “They would look at me like I was nuts,” he said, “like, ‘How dare you?’” But he said he wants non-Hawaiians and those of the older gen-

eration of Hawaiian natives to see Bauknight’s film, so they can understand the desires of those she interviewed, who want more control over their destiny and that of the islands. Bauknight said the film has been shown at a number of film festivals and garnered awards. Her next step is to go back to Hawaii and film an update on the activities of those who are pursuing sovereignty, before the film is released in theaters or broadcast on a national television network in 2012. She also wants to enter it in the Academy Awards competition. “The goal is to get this story out to as many people as possible,” she said. Vierra, who co-writes a column on male-female relationships for this newspaper with his wife, M’Lissa Trent, said he understands that sovereignty for native Hawaiians is a long-shot, but he also believes that sovereignty is the best way for the islanders to improve their health and economic status, as well as protect their culture. “Will I see an independent Hawaii before I die? It would be great, but I don’t know,” he said. For more information about the upcoming screening of the film, and the documentary itself, log onto

Village Church Nursery School pays tribute to Moms The Mother’s Day Program at the Village Church Nursery School was a very special event. Children sat in Mom’s lap and participated in a “typical music session” organized by the school’s music teacher, Monica Conway. Teachers helped their children create in-

dividual gifts which they presented to their Moms with pride on this special day. The staff provided a special snack for children on beautifully decorated tables in Fellowship Hall. As part of the festivities, a video of the children was put together by Monica

Conway and children’s art work was on display. This whole event was a truly a meaningful time when children were able to show appreciation and love for their moms.

RSF School’s Ocean Week to Experts shares how to prepare for an emergency with Solana Santa Fe parents feature a variety of creative events BY STACEY PHILLIPS Three days of food, extra batteries and a hand-held can opener are just some of the items to include when putting together an emergency preparedness kit, according to Stasia Place Richardson from the County of San Diego’s Office of Emergency Services. Richardson, who is an emergency services coordinator, was invited to Solana Santa Fe school on April 28 to talk to parents about how to be prepared at home in case of an emergency. Suzanne Agarwal, VP of Health and Safety at the elementary school, stressed the importance of educating families on what to do in case of an emergency. “Because there are so many unpredictable factors, the more that we prepare ahead of time, the better our responses will be during the emergency,� she said. Whether there is the threat of a fire, earthquake, tsunami or terrorist attack, Richardson aims to spread the word throughout San Diego County on how to best be ready. Speaker Stasia Place She highly recommended knowing how to shut off your utilities. Often you need a special utility wrench to shut off your gas, Richardson and SDG&E can show you how to turn it off. “You want to miniPhoto/Stacey Phillips mize damage to your home,� she said. One way to do this is to bolt large bookshelves to the wall whenever possible and put heavy books on the bottom shelves to prevent the bookshelf from falling. In bedrooms, she said to try to place the bed away from windows and advised putting a flashlight and hard-soled shoes under your bed just in case there is an earthquake. If the windows shatter, she said this helps protect your feet. When you are putting together a disaster kit, Richardson said to make sure to place it where it is easily accessible and tell everyone in the family where it is. “It should be big enough to have what you need but small enough to carry,� she said. “Often people will put the items in a piece of luggage so it can be wheeled out in case of an emergency.� Inside the kit, she recommended having enough food and water for each member of your family, including pets, for at least three days. Richardson said to include food similar to what you eat now, and although canned food is a good option, she reminded parents to purchase a handheld can opener. The amount of water suggested is one gallon per person per day. She also recommended having enough medicine for a week. “Every time you change your clocks, get in the habit of changing the food and water in your disaster kit,� said Richardson. Other items for your kit include extra clothes, a battery-powered radio, a whistle and something to keep you occupied such as books and playing cards. Richardson also recommended keeping cash in small bills in case credit and debit machines are inoperable. Important paperwork like home and car insurance and your marriage certificate can be scanned and put on a thumb drive or CD. “You don’t know when a disaster is going to happen,� said Richardson. “If you are prepared, you will have better peace of mind.� Richardson also talked about Alert San Diego, the County’s mass notification system. Listed and unlisted landline numbers are already registered in this system. Cell phones can also be registered by visiting on the Internet. San Diego County offers more detailed information about each type of disaster on their web site:

algae and other plants with traits that can eventually make economically-competitive biofuels More information at Watching West Coast sea levels Sea level has been steady on the West Coast of North America the past three decades, but there is evidence that a change in wind patterns may be occurring that could cause coastal sea-level rise to accelerate, according to researchers at Scripps Institu-

tion of Oceanography, UCSD. Global sea level rose during the 20th century at a rate of about two millimeters (0.08 inches) per year. That rate increased by 50 percent during the 1990s to a global rate of three millimeters (0.12 inches) per year, an uptick frequently linked to global warming. Rising sea level has consequences for coastal development, beach erosion, and wetlands inundation when combined with high tides, storm surges, and extreme wave conditions. News release at Electrical oscillations and

the brain Biologists at UCSD have discovered that electrical oscillations in the brain, long thought to play a role in organizing cognitive functions such as memory, are critically important for the brain to store the information that allows us to navigate through our physical environment. Three types of neurons provide an internal GPS system to the brain. One type, called “grid cells,” has been shown to provide grid-like patterns for the brain to store memories of physical dimensions of the external environment. The current

study showed that grid cells require precisely timed electrical oscillations in order to function properly. The work has implications for understanding the underlying causes of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and for restoring memory in areas of the brain that are necessary for orientation. The study appears in the journal Science. News release at mmeIhz. — Lynne Friedmann is a local science writer.

board sign. The FEIR spurred strong outcry from Solana Beach, Del Mar and other area residents, as well as elected officials who claimed it failed to adequately analyze impacts from traffic, noise, lighting and pollution. After certifying its FEIR, the 22nd DAA filed with the county clerk’s office. That began a 30-day period during which the FEIR could be challenged through legal action, which it now appears Del Mar and Solana Beach are teaming up to do.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

ECONOMIST continued from page 8

in this bizarre way by saying we’re really going to make it hard for you to come here, but once you’re here, and you work and you’re a productive member of society, we’ll more or less leave you alone. That’s OK, but it could be a lot better.� He advocates granting visas to those immigrants who are making positive contributions to the U.S. “Again, it’s a talent search,� he said. “Now that we have a population of 11 million illegal immigrants, that’s significant enough to say, ‘OK, it’s not good for the U.S. in the long run to have so many people in effect living underground. And it’s not good for them [illegals] either.� In his research, he has measured the effects of a wide range of influences on people’s welfare including the divide between church and state in the economic realm and how the spread of U.S. churches is affecting the provision of social services in various countries. U.S. churches, seeking to expand their member-

ship, in addition to offering doctrines, are providing material aid to people in countries ravaged by wars, natural disasters and poverty. “Churches,� his research showed, “thrive in an environment where governments have abdicated their role of taking care of people when they are down.� “None of that is to pass judgment on whether religion is a good or bad thing, but to understand how the church and the state interact.� As for Mexico, in a recent publication, he posed the question: “Why isn’t Mexico rich?� Part of the reason is Mexico has accepted and followed the U.S.’s advice. “It has privatized its industries, it has deregulated its markets, it opened itself to international trade and investments,� he said. “And yet what has happened is Mexico’s growth performance has lagged behind, not just much of Asia, but behind much of Latin America.� While Mexico privatized state-owned companies, it did not protect itself against the formation of monopolies “that dominate the country to an amazing extent,� Hanson said.

A prime example, he said, is the telecommunications monopoly Telmex, “notorious for high prices, not great service, among the highest broadband connection fees in the world, very high prices for cell phone use and spotty land line coverage� and owned by Carlos Slim, reputedly the world’s richest person. “Here we are in the midst of a worldwide information technology revolution and Mexico is disadvantaged by a company that is fattening its profits and limiting the pace of technological change in the country.� Also, Hanson says, Mexico’s financial system is archaic and impedes the flow of investment to entrepreneurs; and is a country has the “bad luck� of producing manufactured goods that China also produces for the U.S. market instead of producing goods that China needs. And, Mexico has to deal with the violence associated with the drug trade. But Mexico has a rich cultural heritage, Hanson points out, which could lead to artistic and entrepreneurial innovations, such as Italy’s development as a design center.

As for China, Hanson predicts it won’t surpass the U.S. in international purchasing power for some time yet. The challenge facing China is whether it can continue to develop without an economic and/or a political crisis which is a historical norm for rapidly growing countries. “China hasn’t experienced its bumps yet, and the big question is, given the repressiveness of its political system, how will it manage when the inevitable economic downturn comes?� But, he added, China’s ability and capacity to adapt is astounding and augers well for its future. And as for the U.S. and its future, he concedes we have lived beyond our means and have to make “adjustments,� — “but it’s not an impossible task.� “The reason for continued optimism is that the U.S. remains the most productive economy in the world. It remains the leading source of innovation... and we haven’t lost that capacity. But there is medium-run pain and there is also coming to terms with the fact that we aren’t going to be the biggest kid on the block anymore.�

There has to be a way for the residents to have reasonable access to village parking. Hopefully it doesn’t involve parking meters which seem to go against the spirit of the community. Is it allowing the Ranch patrol authority to ticket? If so, lets figure it out, before there is no longer a reason to visit the Village. Finally I would encourage the real estate and financial institutions that are bringing in all the employees and taking all the parking to get involved in helping find solutions. It is only common sense that if the Village is no longer a desirable place to lunch or shop it will hurt their businesses too. Robb Dalton

BILL continued from page 2 garding issues of public safety, that do not reflect the wishes and needs of the community.’ Sound familiar?” A potential roadblock for SB 249 is the fact that the governor may not be keen on giving up any appointments to these state boards. Because of that, Hilliard said he has helped to draft an alternative option, which is to amend the law so that it clearly spells out the jurisdiction Del Mar has when it comes to regulating activities on the fairgrounds that are “outside of the [District Agricultural Association’s] core mission, and are competitive with private enterprise in the commercial market.” SB 249 and the proposed alternative amendment are both in addition to Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), which would authorize Del Mar to buy the fairgrounds from the state. SB 1 was introduced in December, but it has now become a two-year bill, meaning it’s on hold until at least next year. SB1, like many bills, has been delayed because the senate and assembly are dealing with the state’s budget crisis. “This is kind of our Plan B,” Del Mar City Councilman Mark Filanc said of the SB 249 and the proposed alternative amendment. “If this gives us at least some jurisdiction over the other events that are not keeping within the [DAA’s] original mission, that certainly goes a long way to helping us. “It doesn’t do everything we want, but it does quite a bit of what we want.”

McNally correct: Lack of parking is hurting RSF Village Last week Mrs. McNally wrote a “Letter to The Editor” concerning the lack of parking in the Village and how it is killing our retail and restaurant opportunities. To that I say, “Amen.” What should be one of the most desirable, livable and quaint villages in all of America has become little more than an overcrowded collection of real estate offices and financial institutions. The Village’s wonderful buildings, master planned by Lilian Rice, were never designed to be holding pens for all these overcrowded offices with too many cubicles. Think about taking the typical office in the Village, stuffing it with desks and salespeople, and it is obvious why our parking is packed. Mrs. McNally is right that the honor system for parking doesn’t work. These people show up early, take the best parking and leave their cars there all day. Those of us that want to come to the restaurants or retail shops are out of luck. Soon the Village will be out of restaurants and retail!

BYLAWS continued from page 1

There are also approximately 17 acres currently zoned multi-family that have not be developed and any Covenant parcel has the potential to be converted through a Covenant modification, which requires 66 percent of the vote from surrounding property owners. Those potential future condo projects were something that concerned board member Dick Doughty. He said by allowing membership rights, it might encourage developers to take single family lots and make a condo project out of it, adding more density to an area whose charm relies on it being rural. Doughty also pointed out that one of the top charges for the Association to come out of the recent community-wide survey was to maintain the Covenant’s rural character. About 10 people came to the May 5 Association meeting to address the issue. “Twenty years of not exploring this, it’s time that we do,” said Bill McNally. “A

lot of property values have changed, some of our condos are worth more than some of the single family houses.” He said it is unfair that condo owners pay their dues, are subject to all the rules and regulations of the Covenant and aren’t allowed the same rights. In February, the Association approved changes for the Golf Club membership to allow 10-year members to remain members after they have moved out of the Covenant, a change McNally strongly opposed. “It seems grossly unfair that people who used to live here can be members of the club but people who have lived here for 20 years…cannot,” McNally said. “It just doesn’t make sense.” Neil Martin, an eightyear-resident and president of the La Costa Verde Homeowners Association, said that circumstances at the golf club have changed. With rounds of play down, it might be a benefit for the club to open up membership rights to condo owners. But board member Jack Queen said that, “If, in fact,

the goal is to get a golf membership there are ways to do that and that’s to buy a home [in the Covenant].” But others in attendance at the meeting said they did not care about the golf club membership, they just wanted the right to vote. One condo owner compared their current situation to “taxation without representation.” While most condo owners do not have voting rights, cannot serve on Association committees, and cannot join the Golf Club, all are allowed to join the RSF Tennis Club, all may use the Golf Club’s dining facilities and all may use the open space and trails system. Smith said there is a possibility for a community meeting on the issue. A meeting could be called if a group files a petition signed by 100 voting members. It would take a quorum of 75 to take a vote at the meeting and if the majority voted in favor of the change it would then require a communitywide vote.

continued from page 1 industry as a youngster at the Del Mar Racetrack. “To have won it is an incredibly humbling experience.” At 20-1 odds, Animal Kingdom had been a pretty decent long shot to win before the race began. He had only run four times before in his life and he had never before run on dirt. “Those were two major variables that he was up against and also he was coming off a six-week layoff,” Wellman said. “He had major obstacles to overcome physically and historically to prove he was capable of winning.” Wellman said the Derby race couldn’t have gone any better. Animal Kingdom was in the 12th or 13th position coming by the stands heading into the first turn. The owners all sit in boxes at about the 16th pole before the finish line at Churchill Downs. Wellman said he was able to track Animal Kingdom fairly well during the race and was confident in how he was traveling at a good rhythm with a lot of energy. He lost Animal Kingdom for about a quarter mile as the race went into

figure of $20,000 could change. A sum of $10,000 is also in the public relations fund for new members to be invited to lunch and shown all the golf club, tennis club and other Ranch amenities as kind of a welcome wagon. The tennis club will also be adding the option to defer its $3,750 enrollment fee over three years. • The RSF Golf Club will have a $300 annual dues increase for all regular memberships (which is a 4.4 percent increase over the current $6,800). All membership categories will have the same increase of 4.4 percent. • A $200,000 litigation reserve or emergency fund was shot down by the board as they felt there is enough money in the free reserves to handle unexpected litigation fees. Last year’s fees were $120,000, but historically they average around $350,000 and were once $550,000, RSF Association Manager Pete Smith said. Currently, the Association has more than $2 million in free reserves.



the far turn, his view blocked by tents, but he watched on the big screen to see him in some traffic. As the horses came around the last turn, Wellman was just hoping to see the red cap pop up and he was pleased when he saw him in such a great position. “At that moment, myself, my wife, my partners, we’re realizing he was in this thing,” Wellman said, Jockey John Velazquez and Animal Kingdom made “an incredible angled move” at the three-furlough pole and with a “devastating turn of foot” gained a clear path. “He absolutely steamrolled down the lane,” Wellman said of Animal Kingdom’s win by two and a quarter lengths, with everyone on Team Valor cheering like wild. “It was an impossible thing to process at the time and even three days later. It’s surreal and incomprehensively very emotional.” Animal Kingdom will now travel to Team Valor’s training facility at Fair Hill, Maryland, to prepare for the Preakness Stakes on May 21.

The artistic Phelans are a family who plays together

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT Contributor Victoria Martino was raised in a home filled with music and art. Her mother, Ellen Phelan, a noted art educator and collector, was docent chair at La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art (now MCASD-LJ) and developer of the museum’s Art to Schools program. Her father, James Phelan, played viola, violin and piano, taught music and art for San Diego Unified School District, and was tenor soloist at the Congregational Church of La Jolla for some 30 years. So Martino had the perfect background for becoming the internationally respected violinist and art historian she is today. “I lived and breathed art and music from the time I was born, so I didn’t consider it anything extraordinary,” Martino said. “It seemed perfectly normal to go up to UCSD to hear experimental music or over to La Jolla Shores for an Allan Kaprow happening.” Every Saturday, her father took her to her violin lessons and they talked about music. After graduat-

She went on to get her master’s in music at UCSD, where she was first violinist in the graduate string quartet. Marriage to the Australian violist Simon Oswell took her to Tasmania, where she formed her own string quartet. Then she was offered a performance fellowship to USC, which led to a

European tour with the L.A. Baroque Orchestra. A stop in Vienna brought her the opportunity of a lifetime — an invitation to join two renowned musical ensembles and another to create the catalog for a major art exhibition. Her acceptance began a 10-year stay in Vienna and a new marriage to the director of the Albertina Museum, Konrad Oberhuber, who had once been her art history professor at Harvard. At the Albertina, she curated several international art shows and founded a chamber ensemble. She also began commissioning music from contemporary composers, including her father, who had started composing seriously after his retirement from the city schools. Several of his pieces were subsequently performed at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and Carnegie Hall. In 2003, after two years in Japan, where Oberhuber had a guest professorship, the couple returned to California, where their young daughter Beatrice (named for Dante’s muse), would have a chance to get to know her grandparents. Since then, Victoria

Martino has presented lecture/concerts in Los Angeles and La Jolla, including an annual series at the Athenaeum in which she explores the interrelationship of music and art throughout history. This year’s series, which started May 3, deals with the post-World War II era, decade by decade. On May 17 and 24, her special guest will be the celebrated Italian guitarist Piero Bonaguri, who has introduced James Phelan’s compositions around the world, and will play one as part of the program on May 24. He will also perform with Martino at a private concert honoring Phelan and his music on May 20. Another musical event this month will include the family’s third generation talent: 18-year-old cellist Beatrice Martino, in a duo with her mother at the La Jolla Historical Society’s Secret Garden Tour on May 14. Beatrice, who is majoring in dance at UC Santa Barbara, is already making a name for herself as a dancer and choreographer, both extending and continuing the family tradition.

Changes come to Mainly Mozart to position it for the future BY DIANE Y. WELCH Contributor Mainly Mozart, Inc., the nonprofit organization that connects audiences to the music of Mozart and the Masters performed by world-class musicians, has announced the appointment of internationally-renowned pianist and chamber musician Anne-Marie McDermott as curator of future chamber music programming. “This is a big change,” said Nancy Laturno Bojanic, Mainly Mozart’s executive director. “This is the first time that Mainly Mozart has diversified its artistic leadership in its 23year history.” Maestro David Atherton, founding artistic director, will continue to lead June’s Mainly Mozart Festival orchestra, comprised of concertmasters and principal players from the nation’s leading orchestras. “But with Anne-Marie’s appointment, chamber music will take on a much bigger role and will be as much a priority as the orchestral programming,” Laturno Bojanic said. Looking ahead to next year there are significant changes planned. The signature June festival will expand to span late April, May and June and will be renamed San Diego Mainly Mozart Festival, giving it recognition and greater visibility on the national

Anne-Marie McDermott has performed throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. About her recording of the ‘The Complete Prokofiev Piano Sonatas’ (2009, Bridge Records), Gramophone wrote, ‘We have waited a long time for an American pianist of this stature.’ music scene. The Spotlight Series of chamber music, which through this year has taken place from January to May at The Neurosciences Institute, La Jolla; St. Elizabeth Seton Church, Carlsbad; and The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, will also undergo changes. The La Jolla series will merge with the festival’s orchestral concerts while the Ranch Santa Fe and Carlsbad series will have their own exclu-

sive programming. Another change is the combining of Club Amadeus and Club Amadeus North, its music aficionado groups, which will become one group beginning in July. “Mainly Mozart’s board of directors has been pro-active in examining all aspects of the organization to make sure it is fresh, relevant, and sensitive to the needs of our community, “ said board chair Alexandra Pearson about the changes. “They reflect our understanding that to attract and satisfy today’s arts consumer we must do far more than just present an excellent product.” The appointment of McDermott is part of this strategy. In her capacity as curator, she will be in charge of all chamber music concerts as well as continuing to perform. She is excited about her appointment and said that she has always had a lot of respect and admiration for Laturno Bojanic since they first began working together in 1996. “Over the years I have looked at the draw of the Mainly Mozart Festival and the musicians who play here, and my performances with the chamber orchestra from Heaven, and it was irresistible for me. I didn’t have a doubt in my head to be involved,” she said. McDermott’s repertoire spans from Bach, Haydn, and Beethoven to

Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev and Scriabin to works by today’s most influential composers. She also leads the Ocean Reef Chamber Music Festival in Florida and the Avila Chamber Music Celebration in Curacao. Beginning with the 2011 season, she is also the artistic director of the Vail Music Festival in Colorado. “Anne-Marie’s energy, passion, and ability to inspire, coupled with her superb musicianship, are among the many qualities that we feel make her the perfect person for this post,” said board president Christopher Weil about the appointment. Mainly Mozart’s administrative staff has also undergone recent changes with the return of Tyler Richards Hewes, now in the role of associate director. Hewes most recently served as executive director for Orchestra Nova after five previous years at Mainly Mozart. Ed Hofmeister, formerly of Lamb’s Players Theatre and The Old Globe, is now director of marketing. Many of the proposed changes were the result of a three-year capacity building grant awarded by The James Irvine Foundation, which has allowed the organization to undertake an intense strategic development process.

Spring Vegetable Composition

Nobody does fresh, fun and fancy California fare quite like Blancaw Olive Oil Poached Halibut with Artichoke, Meyer Lemon and Nettle Emulsion

Executive Chef Gavin Schmidt pays attention to detail as he prepares the dish Still Life of Local Waters, right, with spot prawn, uni, oyster, smoked avocado and Dashi vinaigrette.

Blanca’s exterior and interior are decorated with soft, neutral colors.

BY KELLEY CARLSON lanca means “white” in Spanish, but the Solana Beach restaurant is green in the selection of its ingredients. “Pretty much every single ingredient (we use) we have sought out local,” said Executive Chef Gavin Schmidt. He described foraging for some of the items — harvesting seaweed from the ocean, gathering nettles in the canyons — often before arriving at work, with the help of the sous chef. Schmidt also visits nearby farms and farmers markets daily, ensuring freshness of the ingredients. The most local items are obtained from Blanca’s own property — the restaurant has a garden consisting of herbs and other edibles such as radishes, turnips, finishing greens (watercress, etc.) and cherry tomatoes. The ingredients are then incorporated into a menu featuring California cuisine. For the table, offerings range from Heirloom Wisconsin Black Popcorn, to the House-Made Charcuterie Plate, containing delicacies such as duck liver mousse, lamb prosciutto and soppresatta, a type of Italian sausage. There is also bread that is made in-house. Individual portions on the menu will satisfy vegetarian, meat and seafood lovers alike. A Spring Vegetable Composition includes chamomile-infused yogurt. The restaurant’s signature dish, Grilled


On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at Click ‘Food’ or ‘On The Menu.’ ■ This week: Blanca’s Olive Oil Poached Halibut with Artichoke, Meyer Lemon and Nettle Emulsion Neville Ranch Berkshire Pork, A Day on the Farm, is composed of seven parts from a pig, along with baby vegetables from seed to flower. Schmidt’s personal favorite is the Still Life of Local Waters, which has an “underwater” appearance and features spot prawn, uni, oyster, smoked avocado and Dashi vinaigrette. Guests who can’t decide on one dish can order Choice of Four Courses, Chef’s Tasting Menu and the Vegetarian Tasting Menu, which showcase the best of Blanca’s dishes on a scaled-down version. While there isn’t a special menu for children, Schmidt said there are kid-friendly entrees such as burgers, pizzas and pastas that are available to order. But desserts are for everyone. There’s Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Truffle Cake and Trio of House Made Ice Cream or Sorbet,

among others. For drinks, Blanca offers a full bar, including specialty cocktails such as Green Apple Fuzz and Blanca Brace-Up (Bulleit Rye Whiskey, Absinthe by Pernod, Peche de Vigne, aromatic and orange bitters and gum syrup). The restaurant also has about 500 international wines, sparkling wines and Champagnes. Schmidt and owner Seth Baas have planned wine pairings for each dish offered at Blanca, but can cater to people’s needs and preferences. Patrons may enjoy their food and beverages in several areas. The main dining room, decorated in soft, neutral colors with lanterns hanging overhead, can accommodate 65 people. A private dining room, which has an outdoor patio, a 52inch plasma monitor and an iPod docking port, allows for up to 22 guests. The snacks, light entrees and cocktails of happy hour can be enjoyed at the bar, which has 14 chairs, or in the 30-seat lounge, with cushioned seats, pillows, a coffee table and a TV. Occasionally, there is live jazzy, mellow music that can be heard throughout the establishment. While reservations are not required, they are recommended for weekends, especially during the summer. Special wine and farmers dinners that are open to the public are held sporadically throughout the year. The menus are usually prix fixe, from four to eight courses.

Your Family Matters: Managing college rejection letters BY DR. KEITH KANNER When 17-year-old Fred received his third rejection letter from the total of 10 universities he has applied to for next year, he began to really worry. He has spent his last two years Dr. Keith Kanner of high school taking very difficult classes, including many AP (Advanced Placement) classes, in order to raise his GPA (Grade Point Average) to increase his chances of being accepted to one of his desired colleges. In fact, because his first two years of high school were somewhat difficult for him as he did not make the full connection between good grades and college acceptance, he had to work extra diligently the past two years to be competitive in the acceptance pool. His dedicated efforts seemed to pay off. By the time he applied to college, he had an “A” average, sufficient community service, good test scores, and he even trained himself in golf to join the junior varsity golf team at his school just to have this as an asset on his resume. In addition, he had glowing letters of recommendation from three of his teachers and won a service award for volunteering with children earlier in the year. In other words, it seemed Fred did all the “right” things to get into college, but at this moment has been rejected by three schools he had imagined himself attending in the fall. As with any experience of disappointment, Fred’s ego has been affected. He feels bad, worried, and guilty for not working harder his first two years of high school. Additionally, he is afraid he will also be rejected by his remaining seven

schools and then does not know what he will do. For the past week, he has not been able to sleep, does not want to go to school, and, embarrassed, has been isolating himself from his friends, many of whom got accepted to their schools of choice. Fred’s parents feel terrible for his plight and have tried to be both supportive and encouraging. His father told him that things like this happen and that they will figure out a plan if he does not get accepted to any of the 10 schools he applied to. Despite this loving and needed support from his parents, Fred continues to feel miserable and worried. He reasoned, “Why did I work so hard over the past two years to have something like this happen to me. Was it really worth it?” Fred’s story is a template for the feelings of many high school seniors now awaiting and receiving their college acceptance and rejection letters filling households with either feelings of elation or disappointment. This is a period of time which moves the late adolescent into the next stage of their lives, namely moving away from home and onto young adulthood. The importance of being accepted or rejected from a university can therefore not only have an effect on the individual’s self-esteem, but also impact feelings about growing up and becoming more independent from mom and dad. In most cases, the high school seniors are encouraged to apply to a number of schools rather than just a few. In fact, a recent statement from the University of California stated that the average GPA for admission into its system is above a 3.7 or an “A” average. Ten years ago the average admission was a 3.5 and 20 years ago, it was a 3.3. These changes have put considerable pressure on both the high school student and their parents to “achieve” at very high levels. To assist with these changes, most high school

counselors suggest that aside from applying to schools of choice, the student also apply to “safety schools,” just to ensure admission somewhere to allow the student to move forward in both their psychological and academic development. Such school counselors also try to counsel their students about the reality of admission competition by educating them that many students either begin college at a community college and then transfer to a four-year university or, in other cases, a student may decide to transfer colleges after two years at a different four-year school if they are not satisfied with their education or experience. Rejection is difficult for anyone and manifests in a variety of ways, including sadness, anger, confusion, doubt and a temporary depletion of self-esteem. It is essential for the parents of the adolescent who is applying to college to discuss the difficult process of competition prior to the application process and also discuss back-up plans if their child does not get accepted to their preferred choices. The attitude of the parent needs to be supportive, loving, positive, and guiding in helping their son or daughter get through this difficult period of their life. The parents who understand the significance of college acceptance and rejection, namely that this period is not just about going to college, but has to do with the milestone of becoming an adult, are the ones who become the most helpful to their child. Key Points: 1. College rejection causes a temporary regression and a hurt ego 2. Parents need to be loving, encouraging, and guiding about next options 3. Prepare your child ahead of time for possible rejection based on newfound competition 4.

A reception will be held on Saturday, May 28, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Lux Art Institute in Encinitas for artist Claudette Schreuders, who will be instudio through June 18. Her work will be on exhibit through July 30. Fashioned from native timber, the carved, painted figures of South African sculptor Claudette Schreuders are powerful shamans alluding to a history of growing up under apartheid as an Afrikaans female. Her thoughtfully rendered pieces have numerous precedents and influences: Noh masks, Baroque polychrome saints, medieval church sculpture, Spanish portraiture, Egyptian woodcarving, family photographs, and perhaps most notably, West African Colon figures—widely recognized icons of African art typically depicting Europeans in Western dress and ubiquitous in the craft markets of Schreuders’ homeland. Lux Art Institute is located at 1550 South El Camino Real in Encinitas, Calif. Hours are Thursday and Friday, 1 to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and cost is $10 for two visits.

Explore the Antarctic like a scientist at new exhibit An interactive exhibit celebrating 25 years of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) research in Antarctica opens at the San Diego Natural History Museum on Saturday for a yearlong run. “Working on Thin Ice: 25 Years of Research in Antarctica” features photographs of scientists at work, the critters they study, and the gear they’ve used, that span the history of the U.S. Antarctic Marine Living Resources Programs. The exhibit also reveals retired research gear, actual Antarctic specimens, and survival suits. Dr. George Watters, director of research for the program that was established in 1986 at the Southwest Fisheries Science Center in La Jolla, called the show “a glimpse into the life and work of the dedicated NOAA scientists who travel to this formidable place year after year in order to understand how the Antarctic ecosystem works and how human activity affects its denizens.” The photographs included were taken and donated by Antarctic scientists and can be found in a new collection of more than 1,000 photos at http://swfsc. Some date back to 1909. Watters said visitors to

the exhibit will see stunning and sometimes startling images of change over time in this extreme system, predators and their young, scientists at work, and the field stations where they live. The U.S. AMLR Program conducts at-sea and landbased research in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctic Peninsula, and Southern Scotia Arc region of the Southern Ocean. The San Diego Natural History Museum is the second oldest scientific institution in California and the third oldest west of the Mississippi. It was founded in 1874 by citizen scientists to interpret the natural world through research, education and exhibits and to promote understanding of the evolution and diversity of Southern California.

Happy Time Nursery School celebrates 49th anniversary in RSF Happy Time Nursery School recently announced the 49th anniversary of its preschool in the heart of Rancho Santa Fe. Located next to the village of Rancho Santa Fe, it has opened its doors to many children of Rancho Santa Fe, ages 2-and-a-half to pre-kindergarten for the last 49 years. To celebrate, the school held a puppet show in honor of the school’s anniversary. Mary Ann Tessary is the school’s director and her son John Paul is the co-director. Mary Ann relishes in remembering that her son was just a week old when he first came as her son to Happy Time. He now co-directs the school with his mother. Mary Ann raised her family in Rancho Santa Fe and she is a part of the fabric of so many people’s lives in the community. The children receive academic instruction as well as kindergarten readiness. Riding welsh ponies twice a week is a delight for the kids. Learning Spanish, having daily high tea, gymnastics, music,

manners and etiquette lessons are part of the daily routine at Happy Time. Teaching respect for others and self-esteem building is also a precious part of the Happy Time Nursery School family. Mary Ann and her staff create an environment that fosters learning and a love for life! It is a little slice of paradise here on earth. To contact Happy Time, call 858-756-3694.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Week in Sports BY GIDEON RUBIN Baseball: After a slow start, Canyon Crest Academy appears to have turned things around. The Ravens, who lost their first four Valley League games, won their last three to move within striking distance in a crowded field contending for the league title. The Ravens snapped a seven-game losing streak when they beat Orange Glen 3-1 on May 2. They beat Orange Glen again by the same score two days later, and then defeated Valley Center 4-3 in an eight-inning game on May 6. A great pitching performance by Matthew Dinerman helped the Ravens turn things around. Dinerman pitched a complete game five-hitter in which he struck out eight batters and allowed one walk in the first Orange Glen game. Jack Kaloogian led the Ravens offensively with a double and two RBI. Kaloogian pitched a complete game five-hitter in the second Orange Glen game. He struck out seven batters and allowed two walks. Frank Montana pitched two shutout innings in relief of starter Cory Osetkowski to get the win in the Valley Center game. The Columbia-bound Osetkowski pitched six innings of one-hit ball, in which he struck out five batters and allowed four walks. Riley Adams had three hits and Austin Kay had two hits to lead the Ravens offensively. The Ravens improved to 3-4 in league and 9-16 overall for the season.

***** A late rally wasn’t enough to save Santa Fe Christian from its first Coastal League South loss of the season. Trailing by three runs, the Eagles scored two runs in their last at-bat in a tough 3-2 to Francis Parker on May 6. The loss followed a 6-1 victory over Horizon two days earlier. Graham Gomez’s two –run double highlighted the Eagles’ seventh inning rally in the Parker game. Parker scored all three of its runs off Eagles starter Nolan Gannon in the bottom of the first. Gannon settled down nicely after that, finishing with five strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings of five-hit ball. Gannon had two hits, and Cal Roberts had a double. Both players scored on Gomez’s double. The Eagles combined for 10 hits in the Horizon game. Barrett Floyd had two hits including a double and two RBI to lead the Eagles, and Gannon homered and drove in two runs. Roberts and Bobby Zarubin each contributed two hits. Eagles starter Zarubin allowed one run in six innings of four-hit ball. He struck out nine batters and allowed three walks. The Eagles fell to 5-1 in league and 16-5 overall for the season. ***** Cathedral Catholic remains in first place after a tough week. The Dons experienced their first Western League loss, 7-6 to Point Loma on May 3. They rebounded from that game with a

Attack B-96 Green move to semi-finals in National Cup Nate Hetherington’s Attack B-96 Green (BU14 premier soccer team) recently moved to the semi-finals in National Cup, streaking past Carlsbad Elite. The game wasn’t decided until the final moments when Attack beautifully executed a freekick to prevail with a final score of 2-1. The late goal sends Attack to semi-finals to face Cosmos Academy, the number 1 ranked team in the nation, next Saturday May 14, with a shot at the title. The boys tied Fullerton Rangers who are one of the favorites to win National Cup this year and beat DMS 11 Academy 3-1 and Pateadores 2-1 in bracket play. In round 16 they faced N.V.S.C., another top-ranked team from Northern California. The players made a solid team effort and displayed a lot of character as they defeated N.V.S.C. 2-1. It is a tremendous accomplishment to win any game in National Cup against some of the best teams in the nation. Coach Nate Hetherington and his team are to be congratulated for a truly valiant effort and for being the only San Diego team left in this top competition!

12-2 league win against Mission Bay on May 5, but lost to La Costa Canyon 7-0 in a nonleague game the next day. Nico Garbella and Eric Sapp each had three hits and Stephen Haviar had two hits including a double and three RBI to lead the Dons in the Mission Bay game. Dons starter Michael Martin allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits in six innings. He struck out five batters and allowed three walks. Haviar homered and drove in three runs to lead the Dons in the Point Loma game. The Dons fell to 6-1 in league and 21-4 overall for the season. ***** Torrey Pines handed Poway its first Palomar League loss, but the Falcons lost two of three games to Poway in a series that eliminated them from title contention. The Falcons rebounded from a 13-7 series opening loss to Poway on May 3, with a nine-inning 5-4 win two days later. They lost the series finale 5-3 on May 7. Brian Thene had two hits including a homer and Garrett Stubbs and Morgan Oliver each added two hits in the Falcons win. Falcons starter Reed Mason went the distance, scattering 10 hits for the win. He struck out six batters and allowed two walks. Kyle Johnson had two hits and two RBI to lead the Falcons in the series opener, and Stubbs had two hits for Torrey Pines in the finale. The Falcons fell to 6-5 in league and 19-8 overall for the season. ***** Girls lacrosse: Torrey Pines held on to sole possession of first place in the Avocado League as the Falcons extended their winning streak to nine games with three league wins. The Falcons opened the week with a 14-4 league victory over San Marcos on May 2. They beat Mission Hills 15-2 on May 4, and Poway 13-7 two days later. Katie Trees scored four goals and Caroline Boucher scored two goals and had two assists

Firecrackers Sparkle in 8U Division

The Firecrackers faced off with the Black Eyed Peas to clinch the championship in the 8U Division of the North Shore Girls Softball League. The Black Eyed Peas were looking to avenge a loss from earlier in the play-offs. However, the Firecrackers’ pitchers, Lauren Ziment, Nikki Wood, and Emily Krueger, along with a strong defense turned up the heat. “Our girls were able to keep the Peas scoring to a minimum, while their bats were able to put runs on the board,” said Firecrackers’ manager John Wood. Audra Carrangelo and Nikki Wood had multiple hits and drove in the runs needed to secure the championship medals. “Exercise, improved self confidence, and making new friends were just some of the highlights of the recreational season for the girls,” said Wood. “Winning the championship was icing on the cake.” North Shore is currently entering its All-Star season and will begin its Fall Ball season in August. Sign ups for the 2012 recreational season will start in November. For more information, visit

La Femme Chic Consignment Boutique offers top designer inventory BY MARLENA CHAVIRA-MEDFORD STAFF WRITER If you think high-end fashion always means paying top dollar, think again. La Femme Chic Consignment Boutique is proof that you can score plenty of luxury labels without breaking the bank. The recently opened consignment boutique in Solana Beach is brimming with handbags, shoes, and apparel — all of it by top designers such as Louis Vuitton, Tory Burch, Armani and Valentino, at a fraction of what you’d pay at a typical retail store. All of the inventory here is handpicked by boutique owner Janet Sinclair, who cut her teeth in the fashion world as a booking agent for a top modeling agency in New York City during the late ‘70s. “Being in the fashion scene, we’d frequent places like Studio 54; and though I wasn’t making much, I still had to look the part,” she recalled. That led her straight to New York City’s high-end consignment boutiques, where she quickly learned that her behind-the-scenes experience in the fashion world gave her an exceptionally keen eye for good finds. After three decades in the fashion and beauty industry, Sinclair has honed that skill to an art. “I love fashion, and a good deal. La Femme Chic is a way for me to combine those loves. It’s also a way for me to help women find that special piece that’s going to make them feel beautiful, whatever their price point and whatever their style. I strive to carry a variety because I want there to be something for everyone here.” Because of that, the inventory ranges from $10 to $10,000 and appeals to everyone from that college student

Keeping dreams alive: A ‘Fun-raising Party’ for Orchestra Nova and music education Guests will step into a Gatsby-inspired fantasy world at a day-time soiree generously hosted by Diane Lekven and Jordan Perez on Sunday, May 15, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in Rancho Santa Fe, with all proceeds going to support Orchestra Nova and its music education programs. Servers dressed in 1920s attire will serve the guests, lovely ladies will model the latest fashions, cars from the time period will add to the ambience and all guests will enjoy a fantastic lunch. Music will be provided by Orchestra Nova musicians and local students. Artistic director and conductor Jung-Ho Pak will be there, sharing his passion and vision for music education in the schools and describing how he and the orchestra intend to continue keeping the dreams alive for students throughout the county. The event will also feature silent and live auctions for wine, jewelry, dinners, parties, vacation packages and much more – all con-

tributing to three hours of fantastic fun-raising! A children’s room will be provided with lunch, games and entertainment, with supervision by a sitting service. Tickets and location information available online at or by calling 858-350-0290.

Volunteers needed for Voices for Children Become part of the solution: Voices for Children is a non-profit agency that trains volunteers to advocate on behalf of one of the more than 6000 children in San Diego’s foster care system. Much more than a mentor, our volunteers advocate for children in court and give their recommendations to the judge. Please volunteer to be an advocate for a child in foster care today and speak for children who cannot speak for themselves. Visit or call 858-598-2235 to learn more.

sories and jewelry, including handmade pieces by Solana Beach resident Cecilia Delvaux, who incorporates vintage and antique elements

into her creations. And with horse racing season on the nottoo-distant horizon, Sinclair is already beefing up her hat inventory and accepting consignments. “One of the best parts of being in the consignment business is seeing someone bring in something that they no longer have a use for, and watching their face light up when they learn someone else is now enjoying it.” Consignment is a form of recycling, Sinclair added, not to mention it’s a great way to turn your closet into cash because sellers get 40 percent of the sale. Anyone interested in consigning can drop into the boutique, where they’ll also likely get a chance to meet Sinclair’s greyhound Sedona. The Greyhound Adoption Center rescued Sedona from a racetrack in Tijuana, saving her from a tough existence. These days, Sedona spends most of her days at the boutique, where she is fast becoming a favorite among customers. Sedona is so much a part of the store, in fact, that she is featured in the store’s logo on the sign out front. Sedona has inspired Sinclair to also become an advocate for rescue efforts dedicated to the breed, and therefore her grand opening celebration on Thursday, May 19, will benefit the Greyhound Adoption Center. The event, which will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., will feature complimentary appetizers and wine, as well as drawings for some great prizes, including a new Louis Vuitton handbag, There will also be photographer onsite offering complimentary headshots, and a makeup artist and hair stylist to help get you primped.

Rummage sale is May 14 at RSF Garden Club By Ginger Bord Congratulations to cochairmans Janet Christ and Barry Zarling, and the countless Garden Club members that worked hard to create a wonderful day at The Garden Club on May 7. The “Rambling The Ranch Garden Tour” was unique and fun for more than 300 guests as they rode around the Ranch in open trolleys, and stopped to tour beautiful gardens while enjoying music and refreshments. “The Open Air Market” on the grounds of the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club was “buzzing” with excitement as people dropped by to peruse and purchase from the wide variety of treasures that the different vendors displayed in their booths. The food booths were definitely popular as was the music that “wafted” through the air. All in all, the day was a huge success; the funds raised from the event will be used to make a donation to a non-profit charity and to sustain the Garden Club. ***** Next Saturday, May 14, the Garden Club property will once again be full of activity with the Rancho Rummage Sale, sponsored by the Rancho Santa Fe Ro-

tary and in partnership with the Community Center and the Garden Club. The rummage sale on Saturday will open, rain or shine, at 7 a.m. and close at 1 p.m. There will be furniture pieces (small and large), children’s clothing, toys and equipment, designer clothing and shoes, household items, garden furniture and so much more! Only green CASH will be accepted, no checks or credit cards. For many years the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club held an annual rummage sale, famous throughout North County for great inventory, bargains and delicious food! The annual rummage sale was a substantial fundraiser for the Garden Club, but it took a lot of time and a lot of people to put it all together. Now, The Shoppe, which is on the corner of La Granada, achieves the same goal but all year around. The Shoppe is open from 9 a.m. -1 p.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, and has the greatest variety of “stuff.” Clothes, shoes, purses, ties, suits, kitchen items, small tables, vases, “gee-gaws” — you really need to see it all for yourself, and often!

***** The Garden Club is offering the opportunity for people to get in shape and be healthy with two different fitness classes. Heart Yoga, a cardio, strength and stretching routine, is on Tuesday and Saturday mornings from 10-11:15 a.m. with Carris Rhodes. On Fridays, from 10:3011:30 a.m., Kim Castelli leads a Gyrokinesis class, a body massage using your own body to work joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating movements. Both classes are held at the Garden Club and the fee is $10 per session for Garden Club members and $15 per session for guests.

Driver safety, coping with grief BY TERRIE LITWIN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, RSF SENIOR CENTER Taking Charge: How to Stay Safe on the Road Driver safety is an important and often sensitive issue for seniors. The changes of normal aging can Terrie Litwin sometimes interfere with the ability to drive. Because everyone ages differently, some individuals can continue to drive safely into their eighties and beyond while others cannot or should not. Statistics show that elderly drivers are more likely than other drivers to receive traffic citations for failing to yield, turning improperly and running red lights and stop signs – all indications of decreased driving ability. Although older adults are at a higher risk for accidents than other age groups and are more likely to be seriously injured than younger drivers, they actually have lower rates of fatal crashes than teenage drivers. They are more likely to obey speed limits, wear safety belts, refrain from driving while under the influence of alcohol, and take fewer risks than other groups. Their adherence to traffic laws and rules of the road supports the contention that when older drivers have an accident, they are more likely to injure themselves than others. Also, license renewals drop for drivers in their 80s even as this age group expands, suggesting that many seniors recognize their diminished driving skills and choose alternate means of transportation. Some, rather than giving up driving completely, choose famil-

iar, less challenging routes, avoid freeway driving, driving at night and other aspects of driving that could cause anxiety or accidents. On Friday, May 20, at 10 a.m., Public Affairs Officer, James Gaffney, with the California Highway Patrol, will present “Taking Charge: How to Stay Safe on the Road.” Please call the Senior Center to reserve your space (858) 756-3041. Coping with Grief – Six Week Bereavement Class According to experts at Mayo Clinic, when a loved one dies, you may be faced with grief over and over again, sometimes even many years later. Anniversaries, holidays, and other special dates throughout the year can bring back memories and trigger sadness. Connecting with others, including close friends or family members, can be an important source of support and encouragement. Attending a bereavement class or group can also help as you get to know others who are coping with loss. Beginning Tuesday, May 24, at 2 p.m., Lavon Switzer, with Vitas Hospice Care of San Diego, will offer a six-week series of one hour classes at the Senior Center. Participants will learn about the symptoms of grief, what you can expect to experience, how to respond to the occasional hurtful statements made by wellmeaning people, and much more. These classes are free of charge and new participants are welcome during the first two meetings. You may attend as many of the classes as you wish. No advance registration is required. Special thanks to Rancho Santa Fe Rotary members for selecting the Senior Center as the site for “Rotarians at Work Day.” Their garden beautification project was a tremendous success and we are deeply grateful!

To Your Health: New options for contraception BY WENDY BUCHI, MD, SCRIPPS HEALTH From birth control pills that virtually eliminate monthly menstrual periods to surgical sterilization procedures that require no incisions, women today have more options for contraception methods than ever. Since their introduction in the 1960s, oral contraceptives or birth control pills have been a popular and highly reliable contraceptive choice for many women. Over the years, the amount of estrogen and progesterone hormones in these pills have been adjusted to minimize side effects such as cramping, bloating and weight gain; some pills also help control acne and heavy bleeding. More recently, extended-cycle birth control pills have become available that reduce or even eliminate monthly menstrual cycles. Whereas conventional pills are taken for 21 days and then stopped for seven days to allow a menstrual period, most extended-cycle pills are taken continuously for three months. At the end of each three-month cycle, the pills are stopped for a week to allow a menstrual period. The newest extended-cycle pill is designed to be taken continuously for 365 days, effectively preventing menstruation for a full year. While extended-cycle pills help prevent hormonal fluctuations that cause menstrual periods and associated symptoms such as cramping and bloating, they do increase the risk of “breakthrough� bleeding, or bleeding between periods. Extended-cycle pills are as effective as conventional pills in preventing pregnancy, and as with any oral contraceptive, women may become pregnant once they stop taking them or if they miss a pill. Another increasingly popular option is the intrauterine device (IUD). In the 1970s, the IUD earned a bad reputation due to the Dalkon Shield, a widely used IUD designed that caused numerous severe pelvic infections and was removed from the market. The Dalkon Shield had a multifilament string that likely made it easy for bacteria to travel up its length and enter the uterus. However, today’s IUDs have eliminated that design flaw and are much safer. One style contains copper and is completely hormone-free; it is inserted during a physician

visit and is effective for up to 10 years. Another style releases a small, timed-release amount of progesterone into the uterus. In addition to providing contraception, it may also help control heavy menstrual bleeding. It is effective for up to five years and can be removed and replaced with a new one at the same visit. The IUD is safe to use while breastfeeding and provides convenient long-term contraception with a 99 percent effectiveness rate. If a woman decides she does want to have a child, the IUD can be removed at any time and fertility returns immediately. For women who are sure they do not want to become pregnant, surgical sterilization procedures are now much less invasive than they used to be. Sterilization blocks the Fallopian tubes and prevents a woman’s eggs from being fertilized. For many years, this procedure has been performed laparoscopically through a few small incisions in a woman’s abdomen; a video camera and surgical tools are inserted through the incision and the tubes are permanently sealed. Performed in a hospital or outpatient clinic under general anesthesia, laparoscopic sterilization takes about 30 minutes and results in minimal pain and scarring. However, newer procedures require no incisions at all and are done through the woman’s vagina. The cervix is dilated and a tiny camera is inserted into the uterus to obtain an image of the openings to both Fallopian tubes. A metal coil or micro-insert is inserted into each tube, and over the next several months, scar tissue forms around the object and blocks the tube, resulting in permanent sterilization. The patient continues to use another method of contraception for three months, at which time an Xray is taken to confirm that the tubes are completely blocked. If not, the patient continues with another method of contraception until an X-ray confirms the blockage is complete. This procedure is performed in a physician’s office or outpatient center under local anesthesia and takes less than 10 minutes; the patient remains awake and can watch the procedure on a video screen. As with any surgery, there are risks of infection or bleeding, but these are very minimal. Wendy Buchi, MD, is an OB/ GYN with Scripps Health.
