Fighting injustice through art of butterfly making BY MARSHA SUTTON Senior Education Reporter Butterflies are about to emerge at Del Mar Heights Elementary School where a months-long project to educate sixth-grade students about the Holocaust is under way.

Animal rights activists allege elephant abuse BY MARLENA MEDFORD STAFF WRITER Have Trunk Will Travel, a company that provides elephant rides at the San Diego County Fair, is being accused of serious abuse by a group of animal rights activists. An undercover video that was recently released by Animal Defenders International (ADI) purportedly shows a trainer striking a baby elephant with a sharpended heavy stick known as a bullhook. That elephant was later featured in the current blockbuster “Water For Elephants,” and therefore the allegations of abuse have garnered international attention.

Senate approves transit bill BY MARLENA MEDFORD Staff Writer State Senator Christine Kehoe’s legislation SB 468, which requires improved transit as part of any expansion of Interstate-5 from La Jolla to Oceanside, has passed the state Senate by a vote of 24-15 and now heads to the Assembly for consideration. The I-5 expansion project in-

cluded an option that would add up to six lanes to this strip of the freeway, however, SB 468 supports the least costly $3.3 billion option, which would add only four total carpool lanes. These lanes would be split into two managed lanes in each direction and be used by express buses, car pools See TRANSIT, Page 7

High school district rejects charges of religious discrimination BY MARSHA SUTTON Senior Education Reporter Objections to activities at four schools in the San Dieguito Union High School District have been raised in separate communications to the district by Dean Broyles, president of the Western Center for Law & Policy in Escondido. “I’ve been contacted by a number of parents,” Broyles said. “We have four or five issues in the same district which is very extraordinary.” Torrey Pines High School, Carmel Valley Middle School, Earl Warren Middle School and Diegueno Middle School in Encinitas have all been named by Broyles, who complained that discrimination in various forms against Christian students was occurring at the middle schools and that the high school improperly permitted the publication of sexually explicit material in its student SEE RELIGIOUS, PAGE 6

Islam textbook controversy continues BY MARSHA SUTTON Senior Education Reporter As the San Dieguito Union High School District responds to complaints concerning religious freedom from the Western Center for Law & Policy, the challenge to the seventh-grade social studies textbook and its discussion of Islam in Chapters 3 and 4 continues to churn. The authors of a document citing 22 instances where they say Islam is misrepresented appeared on a recent radio talk show and said the school district asked them last year to prepare a supplemental curriculum for use in the classroom. Michael Hayutin and Linda Sax said on air that, based on the SEE ISLAM, PAGE 6

Canyon Crest Academy senior selected for ACS Scholars Program Steven A. Quintero, a senior at Canyon Crest Academy, is one of 125 high school students selected by the American Chemical Society from a national pool of applicants for its ACS Scholars Program. The program provides a renewable grant valued at more than $15,000 for students pursuing studies in the chemical sciences at the college level. Steven will be attending Stanford University next fall seeking a degree in biochemistry. “As a long-time resident of Carmel Valley I have been so very fortunate to be surrounded by great schools and educators that have helped foster my love of science and learning. We live in a great area with so many available resources related to the bio and life sciences that give high school students an exciting look at career opportunities,” Steven said. Steven started a chapter of the American Chemical Society’s Chem Club at CCA with help from Kaveh Shakeri and has done coursework through UCSD in Applied Immunology. Steven was a recipient of Canyon Crest’s Dollars for Scholars award, as well as recognition for Excellence in Science. For the past seven years Steven has been able to find an outlet for his competi-

tive spirit with area club soccer teams the Del Mar Sharks, CV Manchester, and Rancho Santa Fe Attack. “In addition to my academics, I’ve learned so much about competing and overcoming adversity from all my coaches, including Billy Garton and Malcolm Tovey. These guys helped me learn how to train hard and play hard, which are valuable skills that will serve me well in college and beyond.” At CCA, Steven was a starting mid-fielder for the varsity soccer team that won the CIF Valley League title this past season. “Coach Tom Lockhart created a family atmosphere on our team, and taught me about leadership and respect, and I know all of his departing seniors take away great memories of this group.” Steven also gave back to the community through his work with special needs children in the TOPSoccer program. Steven says that he will miss reading the stories in the Carmel Valley News about local sports teams and school activities, “Maybe my mom and dad can send a copy up to Stanford now and then just to keep me in the loop!” Congratulations on your ACS Scholars Award Steven and best of luck in college!

Another high national ranking for Torrey Pines High School Torrey Pines High School has received an impressive ranking of 109th in the nation in the Washington Post’s first list of “America’s Best High Schools.” This improves on the previous year’s ranking of 125th in a similar annual list published in Newsweek. “This is an outstanding result for Torrey Pines High School,” said school principal Brett Killeen. “It is especially impressive when you take into account that many of the schools ranked above us on the list are charter or magnet schools.” Education reporter Jay Matthews uses the “Challenge Index” to measure how effectively a school prepares its students for college. The Challenge Index is determined by dividing the number of Advanced Placement (AP) or other college-level tests taken each year at a school by its number of graduating seniors. This results in a score which is compared to other schools across the nation and represents the degree to which students at any given institution select rigorous courses. According to the Matthews, “AP (tests) are important because they give average students a chance to experience the trauma of heavy college reading lists and long, analytical college examinations.” His research shows that even students who did not achieve a passing score on an AP test did significantly better in college than similar students who did not take AP courses. Killeen does not put too much emphasis on the ranking, however, he appreciates the validation and positive recognition. He feels the school’s national ranking will continue to rise in the future. “We should improve slightly next year because our AP data for 2011 is even better.” Other San Dieguito Union High School District school rankings included: Canyon Crest Academy at 192, La Costa Canyon at 401, and San Dieguito High School Academy at 600.

Local resident’s new book shares tale of survival in North Korean concentration camp BY DIANE Y. WELCH Contributor Reverend Kim YungChol, 83, at first meeting appears very quietly spoken and understated. Yet beneath the local resident’s tranquil exterior hides a terrible history that was hidden for many decades. This past has recently been brought to light in his book, “I Trust You” subtitled, “Only person survivor from Aoji in North Korea” [Woowon Publishing]. Kim’s book was originally published in Korea – his native country – in his native language. The book is a heartfelt autobiography of Kim’s recollections of his dark days when the Russian Secret Police arrested him in his hometown of Pyong Yang in North Korea when he was only a teenager. What followed were unimaginable conditions that he survived, largely due, in part, to his indomitable faith. “With God’s help I was able to survive all kinds of hardship,” said Kim of the atrocities he endured as a political prisoner. Chapters include his immediate family history, its Christian faith during communist oppression,

The Rev. Kim Yung- Chol and how Kim emigrated to America as the only surviving family member. Life took a turn when, as a young man in the 1960s, Kim was adopted into an American family, then entered into the Drew Theological Seminary in New Jersey where he received his master’s degree in theology. Just prior to that, Kim’s undergraduate education had been completed at Seoul Central Theological

Seminary in 1958, when he undertook his first ministry as a preacher at the Seoul United Church. The heart of the book, however, describes Kim’s past experiences from 1947-1949, when he was a political prisoner in North Korea, arrested by the Soviet Union’s KGB at the age of 17. “The horrible, terrible torture and the hardship that I had was because I was against communism,”

said Kim, who is the third generation of the Christian ministry in his family. In 1947, Kim was initially incarcerated in Pyong Yang prison. From there he was moved up to the north of the country to Hamheung Prison. The moves continued as the Soviet KGB arrested more political dissenters, many of them young students, and the prisons overflowed. As the number of arrests swelled, the prisoners were transported by train to a final destination, Aoji Prison. Described by Kim as the “infamous human slaughterhouse,” the prison was located in the far north of Korea, close to the borders of China and Russia. The conditions there were unimaginable. “It became one of the most monstrous concentration camps in North Korea,” said Kim. It was 1949 when Kim was held captive in that prison, he was one among almost a 100,000 prisoners Temperatures dipped to -20 degrees Fahrenheit. Kim was strictly separated from his family and those he knew, and food was scant. “And after six months everyone was

starving to death,” Kim recalled. There was strict control. There were no prayer meetings allowed and there was no communication with the outside. But as each prison cell housed 30 people, they were able to share their individual stories. This helped keep their spirits up, said Kim, and survive the daily interrogation and torture. As no one else has shared their stories about Aoji Prison, and there are no living survivors, Kim’s first-hand recollections have a meaningful place in history, he said. “I was strong, I was a teenager, and the youngest one there. That’s why I received a two-year sentence, most of the political prisoners received 5-10 year sentences. They called me ‘our baby’ in the prison.” When Kim was released, just prior to the start of the Korean War in 1950, he lost contact with his fellow inmates at Aoji and his memories were buried. “I could not explain it for a long time, I did not think about it. I closed it out of my mind,” he explained. Kim went on to live a full life as a minister in the

United Methodist Church in New Jersey. In 1984 he relocated to California when his wife, Sook, transferred her civilian job in computer programming with the Navy for a position in Long Beach. When that plant closed the couple moved to Solana Beach. Now 80, Sook recently received an award for her 40 years of continuous service with the Navy, and is now based in Point Loma. They have three adult children and seven grandchildren. Through the urging of family and close friends in Solana Beach, Kim handwrote his memoirs of Aoji in Korean, which were transferred into a computer database by three local students. The autobiography is one of four books that Kim has written and had published. “I Trust You” is the first to be released in English. Kim’s colleague and friend, Francis Bud Holeck, wrote the translation. More than a memoir, the book serves as a historic document, said Kim. Signed copies are available from Reverend Kim by calling him at (858) 755-4845.

RELIGIOUS continued from page 1 newspaper. In a four-page letter to Broyles dated May 20, SDUHSD superintendent Ken Noah responded to the charges, denying any wrong-doing by the district. In the Oct. 22, 2010 issue of the TPHS student newspaper “The Falconer,” a feature section titled “(SEX) posure” included suggestive photos and contained stories about birth control vs. abstinence and sexually transmitted diseases. It also included an informal, anonymous survey of 263 TPHS students, asking them if they knew anyone with an STD and if they or any student they knew used birth control. Broyles wrote in his letter to TPHS principal Brett Killeen that such sexually explicit material in the school’s newspaper “serves to undermine parental confidence in the school’s administration, who is supposed to serve in the role of parents (in locus parenti) while their children are in your care and trust.” Broyles cited the 1988 Supreme Court Hazelwood case to support his position that the school has the legal authority and responsibility to intervene when necessary to protect students from inappropriate material in schoolsponsored publications. “The TPHS administration … had the complete authority to edit in part or completely deny the salacious ‘(SEX)posure’ article and photographs,” Broyles wrote. Noah, in his letter, said

the ability to exercise prior restraint to censor student publications is limited, “unless the articles are obscene, libelous, or slanderous, or if the articles incite pupils to create a clear and present danger by breaking the law, violating school rules, or disrupting the orderly operation of the school.” “We do not believe the article in question rises to the standard under which the administration could have legally prevented its publication,” he concluded. Broyles also objected to the survey, saying it violated section 51513 of the California Education Code, which states in part: “No test, questionnaire, survey, or examination containing any questions about the pupil’s personal beliefs or practices in sex, family life, morality, and religion … shall be administered to any pupil … unless the parent or guardian of the pupil is notified in writing … and the parent or guardian of the pupil gives written permission …” “There can be no dispute that a survey was issued to 263 TPHS students containing questions about their personal beliefs and practices in sex, family life, morality, and religion,” Broyles wrote. “The article itself admits as much on its face.” Broyles said surveys can be conducted informally but certain subjects cannot be broached without prior parental permission, and parents who contacted him said they were never notified or asked if their children could participate in such a survey. “There are certain topics

that kids are not supposed to be surveyed on without the parents’ knowledge in advance,” he said. “We’re not saying no surveys at all. We’re saying no surveys about private, sexual and religious matters.” Noah said the district and its legal counsel interpret 51513 differently, saying the code prohibits school staff from administering sensitive surveys to students without prior parental notification and approval. But it does not apply to surveys conducted by students, who he said have free speech rights that staff cannot by law restrict, no matter how delicate or personal the subject. “Since this survey was not conducted by district staff or for any official purpose, any student who was informally approached by a fellow pupil was not under any obligation to provide answers,” Noah said. “They seem to say that if the students do the improper survey, it’s not improper under the code,” Broyles said. He said the school’s staff and newspaper adviser should have known about the survey before it was conducted and understood that it was illegal. “I find it very hard to believe that the faculty adviser didn’t know that a survey was done by the students,” he said. Broyles asked for an apology in the next issue of “The Falconer,” training of staff and future discretion. “It does not appear that any sort of retraction is warranted,” responded Noah. Equal access in middle schools In a letter to Earl Warren Middle School principal Anna Pedroza dated Jan. 25, Broyles said the Fellowship of Christian Athletes club, now known as The Pulse, should be given “equal access to be able to invite and host offcampus speakers and guests.” He said youth pastors have

ISLAM continued from page 1 district’s request, they developed the material, which presents a harsher portrayal of Islam than the textbook does. But the district then refused to use the supplement. At the May 19 school board meeting, Noah denied asking Hayutin to prepare anything, saying, “That’s just patently false.”

been “improperly banned,” and the club has not been permitted to advertise like other groups, read from the Bible, or offer free food. In his memo to Pedroza, Broyles wrote, “Except for legitimate safety concerns, the administration may not dictate to the club what can and cannot be said in their meetings, such as placing restrictions on whether the Bible is discussed or whether prayer occurs at the meeting.” Noah rejected these points, saying, “Anything that we allow for clubs, we allow for all clubs. Anything we don’t allow, we don’t allow for all clubs as well. We don’t treat these any differently than others.” Noah acknowledged that written district policy surrounding clubs currently specifies only high schools, but he emphasized that middle schools have always followed the high school policy. “The de facto practice at the middle schools has been what we do at the high schools,” he said. Nevertheless, Noah agreed that the policy needs to be expanded to include middle schools in writing as well. “That case looks like it’s resolving itself,” Broyles said. “They don’t have a written equal access policy for middle schools, but they committed to create one.” Noah said this is a minor technicality and not a concession. “We did not change policy or direction,” he said. Regarding free snacks like pizza and allowing preachers or pastors to talk to students during school hours, these are “going beyond what would be the normal bounds of trying to entice students [into clubs],” Noah said. “We did not agree to do those kinds of things.” At Carmel Valley Middle School, Broyles defended a student who was prohibited by a teacher from posting a message about Christmas on

the school bulletin board. In an April 5 letter to the district, he said it was “government censorship of a student’s religious speech” which he called a “flagrant violation of students’ constitutional rights.” In attempting to be fair, the teacher “trample[d] on the rights of religious students,” showed “ignorance of the law,” and censored free speech. Noah said that although the school’s bulletin board is entitled “to some First Amendment protection,” it is not unlimited. “It is our position that the bulletin board, which has the purpose of showcasing student events and achievements, may be practically limited to preserve the board’s secular nature,” he wrote in his letter. “I feel this is reasonable, particularly in light of the school’s captive audience of students who are required to be on campus.” Broyles said Noah’s comments about the bulletin board “were by far the most disappointing to us, legally and factually,” and he recommended in his letter that all staff be given “constitutional sensitivity training.” Anti-Christian In reaction to the news that an assembly to supplement history lessons about Islam was held at Diegueno Middle School last fall featuring a Muslim speaker, Broyles sent a letter to the district March 15 requesting a Christian history assembly for seventh-graders, “highlighting the contributions Christianity has made to society and world history.” He said this would dispel “any misconception that parents or students may have that the school may be favoring Islam over other religions being studied throughout the course of the year.” “After due consideration, I am denying this request,” wrote Noah, who said seventh-grade history standards

cover the years 500 to 1789 of the Common Era, which is the period when Islam emerged. It is the sixth-grade curriculum that focuses on the origins of Christianity, he said. “We thought it was a reasonable request to have an assembly on a topic that’s covered in the curriculum, and they denied that request,” Broyles said. “That’s not something we can necessarily coerce them to do.” More troubling to Noah was the following statement in an email from Broyles, dated May 12, that read, “Employing your discretion to permit the assembly would be a wonderful way to dispel any notions that the [district] is anti-Christian.” “The implication of this statement is profoundly disturbing to me on a personal and professional level,” Noah wrote in his letter to Broyles. “As the leader of this school district, it is my moral, ethical and legal responsibility to ensure that students of all faiths enjoy the rights and privileges to which they are entitled by law.” But Broyles said it was Noah who first said in a private meeting that the tone of Broyles’ letters indicated that some parents may believe the district to be anti-Christian. “I said that if you’re concerned about dispelling that perception, this [assembly] would be a good way to do so,” Broyles said. “I wasn’t implying in any way that he or the district was anti-Christian.” The Western Center for Law & Policy is a non-profit legal defense organization which, according to its Web site, is “dedicated to the protection and promotion of religious freedom, parental rights and other civil liberties.” The San Dieguito Union High School District serves about 12,000 students in grades 7-12 at nine middle and high schools in the north coastal area of San Diego County.

Noah said the textbook challenge is working its way through appropriate channels at the state level, but a public meeting held June 5 by Hayutin about the issue concerned him. “This has all the earmarks of a highly politicized issue, and I’m going to have to take this on,” he said. “I’m not willing to put the children of this district in the line of fire.” Noah said he considers

the matter very serious. “Hopefully, we can resolve this in a civil fashion,” he said. Western Center for Law & Policy president Dean Broyles said he is aware of the controversy and did a preliminary analysis of the seventh-grade history textbook. He said Hayutin’s objections have some merit, not only on the issue of Islam but also on how Christianity is portrayed.

“I am concerned about inaccuracies and distortions that seem to pervade the seventh-grade curriculum,” he said. “There seems to be selective focus and selective reporting from a certain perspective that is not necessarily objectively accurate.” On June 4, the San Diego Muslim Community released a rebuttal to the 22-point Hayutin document which can be accessed at: http://textbookresponse.

Carmel Valley talists want to balance the need to keep commerce flowing on the highway while improving air quality and protecting our coastal lagoons.” The I-5 expansion has been met with strong opposition throughout North County, with hundreds turning out to publicly speak against it and prompting a few grassroots groups forming to fight it. While SB 468 does not stop the I-5 expansion, supporters say it does address many community concerns. “I am so pleased that Senator Kehoe was able to move this legislation through the first big hurdle in the complex legislative process up in Sacramento,” said Dave Roberts, Solana Beach City Councilman and North County Transit District Executive Committee Board member. “This legislation is critical to protect our Solana Beach quality of life and ensure that public transit and freeway options work hand-in-hand, providing critical longterm funding from managed lanes to support public transit. Our residents and businesses strongly support a balanced solution that protects our fragile seaside community, yet improves transit options, including funding improved Coaster and Breeze public transit options now.”

TRANSIT continued from page 1 and non-polluting vehicles — and they would also allow tolls, the revenue from which would be directed to transit improvements in the corridor. SB 468 would also require transit improvements be developed in tandem with the expansion of I-5 within each 10year period of the 40-year project. Improvements include: adding a second track for the Coaster and Amtrak so there can be more passenger and freight trips per week; and creating a Safe Routes for Transit program linking the regional bike plan to transit. SB 468 also reduces the number of properties the state must acquire from 421 to 10 or fewer, and it protects the six coastal lagoons within the project area by requiring that bridge construction for both the highway expansion and double-tracking of the rail line occurs at the same time in each lagoon. “This legislation will bring our region closer to a plan that reduces congestion and provides stronger transit options in the coastal corridor,” Kehoe said in a written statement. “Residents, businesses, and environmen-

SD Council approves budget that restores neighborhood services San Diego Councilmember Sherri Lightner recently joined six of her colleagues in approving a budget for FY2012 that protects public safety and restores the neighborhood services that San Diegans value most. Highlights of the approved budget include the restoration of all browned out fire engines on July 1, reinstatement of lifeguard training and three accompanying relief lifeguard positions, and maintaining the current hours of operation at all libraries and rec centers. The approved budget accomplishes the priorities that Lightner has championed throughout the budget process. “This Council made tough, common sense cuts that save key services while

tackling the City’s longterm budget challenges,” Lightner stated. “My constituents have been very clear that their top priorities are preventing cuts to our libraries and rec centers while restoring browned out fire engines and lifeguard training and staffing. We heard you loud and clear. Despite a large budget deficit, we have succeeded, by and large, in achieving the goal of protecting neighborhood services and restoring public safety,” Lightner added. “In particular, I have been advocating for the restoration of browned-out fire engines since this was first proposed, and I’m pleased that we will be able to get these engines back in service starting July 1,”

Lightner noted. “In addition, lifeguards have shown time and again that they are worth every penny we spend on them.

Del Mar resident recognized for outstanding contributions to plant science BY ARTHUR LIGHTBOURN Contributor On the wall of her office is a photo of her favorite plant, a weed, known to scientists by its Latin name of “Arabidopsis thaliana� or just plain ol’ “Arabidopsis.� Non-scientists refer to this insignificant-looking annual as mouse-eared cress or thale cress. It can be found in poor sandy or gravelly soil around parking lots and railway sidings. The photo of Arabidopsis given to Dr. Joanne Chory (pronounced “Cory�), as a gift from her staff a few years ago is captioned with a quote from 19th century American poet/naturalist/ philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson that defines a weed as “A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.� Professor Chory has been discovering the virtues of Arabidopsis for 23 years at The Salk Institute, where, using a molecular genetic approach to the study of Arabidopsis, she pioneered the analysis of plant responses to the environment, discovered a novel steroid hormone in plants, identi-

fied the steroid receptor and dissected the signaling network. Arabidopsis is to plant biologists what mice and fruit flies are to animal biologists. It’s small, easy to grow, reproduces rapidly from seed back to seed in six weeks, produces lots of seeds and has a simple genome that has been completely sequenced and can be manipulated genetically. As such, it has become THE reference plant for understanding the molecular biology of many plant traits, including flower develop-

ment and light sensing. As director of the plant molecular and cellular biology laboratory at The Salk, Chory and her staff of 20 researchers, with the help of thousands of Arabidopsis plants grown in the lab’s five dedicated greenhouses, has made major discoveries about how plants grow and develop. In recognition of her contributions to science and adding to her extensive list of her honors, which include being a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, member of the

The Royal Society cited her as “a beacon of scientific excellence and a wonderful ambassador for plant research in the international scientific community.� She is also an adjunct professor at UCSD and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. We interviewed Chory in her lab and greenhouses on the campus of The Salk Institute for Biological Studies on North Torrey Pines Road in La Jolla. The Salk Institute ranks among the world’s leading research institutions dedicated to the study of molecular biology and genetics, plant biology and neurosciences under the guidance of 56 faculty investigators with a staff of more than 850, including visiting scientists, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students. Chory was born in Methuen, Mass., grew up in nearby North Andover. She was the third child in a family of six children. All four of her grandparents had emigrated from Lebanon. Her father was an accountant and her mother was a technician at the Bell Labs. “I always describe myself as a late bloomer,� she said.

Local resident heads fundraising effort for campus devoted to serving people with special needs BY DIANE Y. WELCH CONTRIBUTOR Local resident Dawn Hummel is proving her metal as chair of the capital campaign to raise funds for an innovative San Marcos university-style campus. The unique 30-acre campus is named the Charles R. Cono Campus for Life Quality. The campus was named for the lead benefactor who purchased the land for the Training, Education and Research Institute (TERI), a longstanding nonprofit organization that serves the needs of children and adults with developmental and learning disabilities. Hummel has taken on the challenge of heading up a committee to raise $20 million to complete the campus by 2014, with a goal to raise $5 million this year alone. The first phase of the campus was recently completed and a gala was held to celebrate the ribbon cutting of its first building, the Harriet E. Pfleger Therapeutic Equestrian Center. The Harriet E. Pfleger Foundation donated $1 million to build the

horse barn which houses six horses and will serve 150 riders. The gala event, Cuvee delle Vite, chaired by Hummel, is TERI’s largest annual fundraiser to date. It was kicked off with a $100,000 donation from Grant General Contractors, partners for construction of the new campus. In addition, sales of fine art created by clients of TERI and donations by family members and friends added more than $230,000 to the building fund. Hummel said that every fiber of her body and spirit is committed to this fundraising mission. She brings to this commitment a prior history as a determined trailblazer and advocate for those with autism and learning disabilities. She was a single mother living in Los Angeles when her son, Jonny, then 2-anda-half, was diagnosed with autism. That was almost 20 years ago when there weren’t many services and programs for children with autism, said Hummel. “It was left to the mothers who fought day and night to find out about

autism, to fight for the services that we needed to get.” When Hummel moved to New York in 1992 she was frustrated that there was no school for Jonny close by. Through fundraising, she initially started a pre-school for special needs newborns through 5 year olds, and then founded the Child Development Center of the Hamptons, a learning center for K-7 special needs students that by 2001 became an inclusive environment that integrated regular students. In 2004 the center was housed in a permanent school structure that was named The Zimmerman Hummel Building of Humanity in honor of Hummel whose “Open to All” philosophy was controversial at the time but now is fully recognized. Ironically, her son never benefited from these schools. “Fighting the education department to get approval for them always took two years, and he was always two years ahead of me,” Hummel explained. The family moved here in 2005 when Hummel

learned of TERI’s Oceansidebased Learning Academy that serves students up to age 22. “People forget that children with autism become adults with autism, so I started looking all over the country for a school for Jonny with a program that he could be in for his lifetime,” Hummel explained. Founded in 1980 by Cheryl Kilmer, TERI is recognized as a model program in the state of California for the quality of services it provides to its clients. For Hummel’s family, it has brought immeasurable joy. “It is so wonderful to see Jonny enjoying life, and being so individual, so independent. I notice how happy he is, I see it in his eyes, I see it in his heart,” said Hummel. “And now Jonny is having the opportunity to go to college which is something that I am very proud of and that I want to be a part of.” Hummel is grateful to the local community for its generous financial support. Funds for TERI have been granted by the Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund, the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation,

Dawn Hummel and her son Jonny. Linda Pfleger Edwards and the Harriet E. Pfleger Foundation, and, most recently, by Verna Harrah, whose support will fund the Culinary Institute, and Recreation Center on the campus. Ultimately, the campus will include life quality planning and coaching, fitness and aquatics, arts, culinary, IT, medical, agriculture, research, green/sustainability and academic curriculums for preschool through 12th grades and adult education/ vocational training. “For my son this will be like Princeton, or Stanford, or Yale,” said Hummel. “This is the first [type of campus of its kind] on the face of this earth, and we are proud to be a part of it.” On Sunday, August 14, the San Diego Polo Fields will have a day to recognize TERI, with the TERI riders doing a demonstration, and TERI artists exhibiting their work which will be for sale. To learn more about TERI or to find out how to leave a lasting mark on the campus through its brick campaign, visit: or text or email teri@mogiv. com.

Carmel Valley Manchester U-14 Girls Academy soccer team wins Nike Manchester Premier Cup 2011 U.S. Finals; will represent USA in world youth championships The Carmel Valley (CV) Manchester Under-14 Girls Academy soccer team will be representing the United States in the Gothia Cup, in Gothenburg, Sweden July 17-23 after winning the prestigious Nike Manchester Premier Cup 2011 U.S. Finals. The Nike Manchester United Premier Cup, held at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, is an invitation-only premier soccer event profiling the top soccer teams from the United States. This year’s event included seven southern California teams as well as teams from northern California, Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington. CV started the tournament off with a hard fought 2-0 win over Illinois top-ranked team NSA Jaguars with scores by forward Hailey Harbison and Natalie Saddic. However, their first day of competition ended with a disappointing loss to cross-town rival San Diego Surf 1-0. Day two started with CV finding themselves down early 1-0 against Danville, California opponent Mustang Mavericks. Maintaining composure, CV fought back and midfielder Natalie Saddic headed one in the net to make it 1-1 at half-time. Late in the game, forward Hailey Harbison was tackled hard in the penalty area while dribbling toward the goal. A penalty kick was awarded and deftly placed by Sarah Chase for the come-from-behind win, 2-1. Beaverton, Oregon provided the next opponent THUSC Mercury. Natalie Saddic scored twice for the margin of victory and guaranteed advancement to the quarterfinals. The quarter-final matchup paired CV

against Redmond, Washington standout team Crossfire Premier where CV cruised to a 3-0 win with goals from Hailey Harbison and Natalie Saddic, while Hanna Keogh provided the final shot bending a corner kick directly into the net. The semi-final match proved to be a significant challenge against the nation’s toprated team, New Jersey’s PDA Clash. Neither team was giving in defensively denying quality scoring chances at both ends. The game remained scoreless after two overtime periods and PKs commenced with CV edging PDA. The final was a SoCal showdown with perennial top performer Arsenal, from Alta Loma, CA who prevailed over San Diego Surf 2-1 in their semi-final match. The final was back-and-forth with early shots by both teams. An early save by CV’s Keeper, Melissa Lowder, was responded to in kind by CV winger Kirsten McBeain who narrowly missed her first shot at the two minutes mark, sailing just high of the crossbar. The game remained back-and-forth throughout. In the closing minutes of regulation Kirsten McBeain echoed another off the cross bar keeping the score at 0-0. Two 5-minute overtime periods were played with similar results sending the game to penalty kicks. Both Keepers played expertly through the first 5 yielding a 3 to 3 PK score.

Manchester Girls ’98-’99 are Notts Forest Memorial Day Tournament champions Coached by Steven Hill, the Carmel Valley Manchester girls ’98-’99 Premier team started off their summer tournament season with a “Championship Trophy” at Notts Forest Memorial Day Tournament in San Diego. Manchester won all three games to advance to the final game as the number one team with 12 goals for and only one goal against. Unselfish teamwork was a key to their success, allowing many players to score goals. While Notts Forest played well in the final game, Manchester emerged victorious! It was a great soccer weekend for this Manchester team as they prepare for their next tournament, their club tournament, Manchester Cup.

Blog helps women on a budget make the most of their wardrobes BY MARLENA MEDFORD Staff Writer It is a quandary most women have grappled with: What should I wear today? The question, albeit common, can be enough to leave some staring blankly into their closets. Lea Fischer and her niece Kimara Kuspa have now made it their mission to help women make the most of their wardrobes via their blog “This is about helping everyday women look and feel their best,” said Kuspa, who grew up in Del Mar and is a Torrey Pines High School graduate. “We give women tips for looking trendy and put together, all while staying on budget.” Fischer and Kuspa said the concept grew out of their long-standing love of fashion, which has bonded them. The duo would spend hours combing through fashion magazines and websites as a pastime, so using that as a means to help other women just felt like a natural progression, they said. Based on the trends they spot, Fischer and Kuspa compile easy-to-browse lists, and write blog posts that help women piece together those looks. “When you look your best, you carry yourself with a certain confidence and class,” added Fischer, who also grew up in the area and is a Torrey Pines graduate. Because they believe feeling the part goes hand-in-hand with looking the part, the women have included a “Pearls of Wisdom,” a portion on their blog that offers

ing her postdoctoral fellow research in plant molecular genetics at Harvard Medical School in 1988, she joined The Salk Institute as an assistant professor in the plant biology department. She was appointed director of the department in 1998. Asked what’s the mission of her lab, she explained, “We have a very basic question that we’re trying to answer and that is: How do plants grow? How do they change the way they look, how fast will they grow and how big will they get, based on the environment that they are in?” “Plants are pretty different from us because we’re born with all of our parts more or less in proportion, the parts just get bigger. A plant is born with those two little leaves, or one leaf depending if it’s a grass, and how it develops in its life depends on the environment. Once a plant germinates in an environment, it is literally stuck in that environment, Chory said. “It can’t run away; it can’t go inside. So if there is too much rain, it has to adapt;

Kimara Kuspa and Lea Fischer, creators of life lessons geared toward women. “Not all of us have a mother or big sister we can turn to for advice,” Fischer said, who is also a mother of two children. “Girls and women today are dealing with so much negative influence and stress. It is so important for them to have that support network, so we really wanted to provide that.” Ultimately, the women hope the website turns into a forum where women can share fashion tips and finds — as well as share advice on issues related to being a woman. “We love feedback and we very much want to hear what people want from this website,” Kuspa said. “This is a passion for us, and that feedback is what keeps us going.” For more information, visit or email kandlcloset@gmail. com.

too much sun is bad, too little sun is bad, too much drought is bad. There are a lot of genes involved in growth and how a plant looks, she explained. “If it’s going to be long and skinny because it’s not getting enough light or if it’s short and bushy, with that same set of genes … So we are interested in the molecular mechanisms that say a plant looks short and bushy or long and skinny.” For example, she said, a lot of plants don’t like being in the shade of another plant because light is the source of food for plants in photosynthesis. A plant in the shade of another plant will grow rapidly and attempt to get over the other plant. “We’ve been trying to figure out how the plant does that — and it does that because of certain photoreceptors that are in the cells,” Chory said. “During the course of the day, the color of light changes. Because plants have different photoreceptors that detect different colors of light, a plant knows when it’s midday versus the end of the day. The photoreceptors let a plant know when there’s more red light

relative to other colors of light, which tells a plant it’s noon time, and so on. “The light environment tells the plant the time of day, the time of year and whether or not it is in the shade of another plant. “It’s a very important basic problem for us to understand because it really dictates how well a plant is going to grow in a particular environment.” The applications and implications of this understanding, Chory said, are many and can be applied to wide variety of plants including corn, alfalfa, wheat, barley and sorghum. With global warming, scientists and plant breeders need to know how plants will adapt to higher temperatures, which may force movement of population northward, Chory said. Also, modern agriculture’s regimented system of planting row upon row of plants densely and the natural tendency of plants to avoid the shade of other plants result in a significant loss of crop yield. Chory and her researchers demonstrated what happens when a photoreceptor is genetically withheld from a plant, providing research-

Stanford-bound CV student earns numerous scholarships BY KAREN BILLING Staff Writer Stand-out Carmel Valley student Anisha Mudaliar has been accepted to a roster of heavyweight colleges, including Harvard, Yale, Princeton and Stanford and has racked up more than $30,000 in scholarship monies. The Pacific Ridge School senior with a 4.83 GPA is not only excellent academically but is extremely community serviceminded, having gone on a service trip to Mexico last month, and she spent time building classrooms in Kenya in 2009. Anisha will head to India for a second time this summer to see a learning center be built for which she helped raise funds. On June 12, she’ll leave for Alabama to compete in the National Distinguished Young Women of America Finals, representing California. In the talent portion of the competition, she’ll show off her Indian classical dance, which she’s studied for the last 10 years. By the way, she picked Stanford and will head there in the fall. Anisha is a very driven teenager, even though she doesn’t yet drive—she hasn’t found the time to get her driver’s license. “I find that when you’re passionate about something, you put all your effort into it,” said Anisha. “I am passionate about service work and science and I pursue those passions wholeheartedly.” Most recently, she re-

Anisha Mudaliar ceived the Kyoto Prize Scholarship ($10,000), Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation scholarship ($10,000), the Athena Scholarship ($10,000), the National Merit Scholar ($2,500) and the Annette I. Baughman Scholarship ($3,500). To win the $10,000 Coca-Cola scholarship, Anisha was selected out of about 71,000 entries. She was one of 250 who won the opportunity to travel to Atlanta and spend the week with fellow Coca Cola scholars, honored for their leadership in community service. Anisha was one of just three San Diego County students to receive a Kyoto scholarship, earning hers in the area of advanced technology. She also won the opportunity to meet Kyoto Prize winner Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, an internationally famous stem cell scientist. Her most recent service trip — to Punta Mita, Mexico in May — was a trip completely designed by Anisha and two fellow Pacific Ridge students. They spent 10 days with the PEACE (Protection, Education, Ani-

ers with a deeper understanding of a specific photoreceptor’s biology. Her team also discovered the biological role of plant steroids and showed that a subset of these steroids is actually hormones. They discovered how plants make this steroid hormone, how they respond to the steroid and how the steroid is involved in making a plant big versus making it as small as a bonsai plant. Discovery of the steroid pathway, Chory said, “means we can make a plant any size we want because we know enough about the genes in that pathway. “And we never would have figured that out if we couldn’t do plant genetics,” she said. “In my 23 years of doing plant biology,” she said, “now more than ever I can see the need for keeping funding at a good level.

mals, Culture and Environment) organization. While there were many colleges courting her, Anisha felt Stanford was the best fit. “I just like the spirit of innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship; I liked the energy and I wanted to be around that energy,” Anisha said. As she is looking at studying international development and global health, Stanford provided the best interdisciplinary opportunities in both human biology and public policy. She said the options for her are incredible and she is not ruling out attending Harvard later on for graduate school. “I’m really excited about what’s in store for the future,” Anisha said. Anisha will be among the first graduating class at Pacific Ridge School in Carlsbad. The school does not name valedictorians but Anisha was certainly the top of the class. She said she is appreciative of the “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity to help build a school from the ground up. “Pacific Ridge has definitely nurtured my growth over the past three years and I’m really glad I made the decision to attend,” Anisha said. “They have a focus on ethical responsibility and global engagement… They supported me and made me feel confident in pursuing what I was passionate about and taking action.”

“Plants don’t get a lot attention in terms of research dollars from funding agencies,” she said. “We need to pay more attention to plants. They are going to play a major role in [solving] some big problems on the planet. “The planet is at a critical juncture. We need to feed nine billion people; we need to deal with the fact that there is not going to be enough fresh water to do it; so we’re going to have to figure out how to get more crop yield with less water. “The basic biology of plants is going to help people figure out how to feed the world.” Asked what in her estimation makes a good researcher? “You need patience, you need to be able to persevere through the hard times and you need grit,” she said. “You really gotta want to know the answers.”

Santa Fe Christian graduates receive record number of college acceptances A new chapter begins for Santa Fe Christian Schools’ Class of 2011, as the seniors toss their caps and look ahead to college. More than 450 acceptances were received from 147 colleges and universities, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Duke, UCLA and Vanderbilt to name just a few. With these acceptances came more than $10 million in merit scholarships. College applications were submitted in record numbers according to Newsweek Magazine, noting, “selective colleges across the country received an avalanche of applications this year.” According to the Office of the President, the University of California had more than 106,000 applicants with UCLA receiving a staggering 61,000 applications. Those statistics didn’t intimidate SFC Valedictorian Juliet Snyder. She will be attending Harvard, which has an admittance rate of just 6.3 percent and received an all-time high of 35,000 applicants. The student’s college selections reflect a wide diversity of disciplines. Jenny O’Brien is thrilled to be on her way to New York City where she will attend The Parsons School for Design, a leader in art and design education. Caroline Hernandez and Andy Kramer, recipients of the SFCS Headmasters Award, will be attending Stanford and Texas Christian University, respectively. Andy received TCU’s highest honor, the Chancellor’s Scholarship, which garnered him a full scholarship for four years valued by the university at over $125,000. Salutatorian Elise Wilson, who will be going to Yale, notes, “The hard work paid off in the end!” Santa Fe counselors Steve Strimple and Nancy Olah observe, “It was great to see so many students do well with their college selections. Many students set their college goals in 9th grade and it was a privilege to partner with them and their parents on their journey.” Santa Fe Christian Schools is a Pre-K through 12th grade college preparatory school located in Solana Beach.

Family law attorney’s special certification an invaluable asset for clients BY MARLENA MEDFORD STAFF WRITER After more than 20 years of professional experience, family law attorney Jim Ratzer has developed a skill set that distinguishes him from most. Ratzer is a Certified Family Law Specialist, meaning he is among a select group who has completed an extensive certification process — and he also has worked many years in commercial litigation, which has provided him with valuable trial experience that is not common for family law attorneys. “Whether you litigate or mediate, you need to work with an attorney who has enough time in the courtroom to know how the judge will apply his or her discretion,” Ratzer explained, who is also a Judge Pro Tem with the San Diego County Superior Court. Ratzer’s extensive knowledge of the courtroom means he also knows when it may be possible to avoid it. “You only want to go to court when you have to. If you don’t have that knowledge, you may end up going to court to fight over something that’s not necessary, which is a waste of time, money and energy.” Ratzer, who lives in Solana Beach and has offices in Carmel Valley, said he ultimately transitioned from commercial litigation into family law because he found it to be a natural fit for his personality, and feels it is highly rewarding work. “In family law, I really feel like I am helping someone every day,” he said. Ratzer also prides himself on providing plenty of personal attention to his clients by ensuring that he is highly accessible, and delving into the details of each case that he takes on. “My cases are not just another file — I care about each one,” he said. “During a divorce, emotions can run high and cause things to spin out of control. It’s important you have an attorney who can provide you with sound legal advice, and help make good decisions for you and your family.”

Jim Ratzer Understanding all the legal implications of divorce can be overwhelming. For that reason, Ratzer volunteers his time every month to a divorce workshop at Mira Costa College. Some of these workshops are geared toward women and some are tailored toward men. A schedule and descriptions of these clinics can be found at Ratzer Family Law is located at 12750 High Bluff Drive, suite 100. For more information, please call 858793-7700 or visit

North Coastal and Escondido League of Women voters merge to form North County San Diego League of Women Voters Saturday, May 21, was an historic day for two Leagues of Women Voters when the North Coast League and the Escondido League voted to merge to form one local league: the League of Women Voters North County San Diego. The communities now served by the North County San Diego League include the areas of Del Mar north to Camp Pendleton on the coast and areas inland to Escondido and Valley Center. The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization of men and women encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government. The goal of the League is to empower citizens to shape better communities. The League influences public policy through education and advocacy. Since 1920, the League has presented unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process and issues. The League of Women Voters North

County San Diego newly-elected president, Mary Crowley, was enthusiastic about the upcoming year with a larger, expanded League: “We look forward to a renewed enthusiasm of our combined membership and a blending of our skills in the fall.” Current Escondido treasurer Arlene Meadows indicated, “This is a great opportunity for both Leagues. We share so many issues and we concentrate on providing the same non-partisan information for our communities. Escondido members are wholeheartedly excited about the merger.” The first event of the merged League will be the fall kick-off event at Dove Library in Carlsbad in September. Watch for upcoming news on the particulars or check the League’s website at in August. The public is encouraged and welcome to attend.

A Voice for Teens/Opinion/Letters to the Editor

Goodbye to all that BY BEN GOTFREDSON As I serve out my last and final detention of my high school career, I’m sitting in the French room. I’ve only been in this room once before, and that was five years ago when I was an 8th grader taking my high school entrance exam. As I sit here in detention, writing this article, I recognize certain posters and projects up on the wall. A Moulin Rouge reprint. A map of south France, an untouched Napoleon poster that couldn’t have been printed in this millennium. While the room hasn’t changed much, the people inside it have. I’m bigger, smarter, my

voice is deeper, and I’m more confident. All these major changes, and yet I still feel Ben Gotfredson like I’m leaving a lot out about me that has transformed. I look back on my innocence at the time. What I didn’t know about high school parties, high school relationships, high school exams, and high school teachers. All I could do at the time was specu-

late, based on my short list of adult experiences and encounters. A blend of “Dazed and Confused” and “Saved by the Bell” is what I thought I’d be encountering for the next 48 months. I remember the fears I held in this very room in 8th grade that I’ve overcome. I recognize the reprint of the French bridge painting because I spent a great deal of time staring at it, petrified of the impending start of high school. I blankly studied the photo as I played out all the paths I could take. Now I stare at the poster and I reflect down the path I did take. I want to reach out to

that middle school student who woke up early on a Saturday to head down to Cathedral High and take this four-hour exam. I want to let him or her know everything I screwed up on and missed out on, what I did and what I failed to do, easier paths and simpler resolutions. But I know that 8th grader will be more than satisfied to see what he turns out to be, like I have been. In a week and a half I’ll never walk through the locker room as a football player, I’ll never walk through the hallways as a student. My teachers will become acquaintances and my fellow students

will become their own persons, with us no longer being shaped by the same school. The teacher in charge of this detention just walked by and I slid my phone into my sock. I’m going to miss those small things the most. Ben Gotfredson is a senior at Cathedral Catholic High School. He had been writing a column from a teen’s perspective for this newspaper throughout the year.

Dear Dog Lovers of Carmel Valley, In early May, on a sunny Saturday morning, my husband was walking our two leashed dogs on a community trail near our home. Signs are clearly posted stating that all dogs must be leashed. Unfortunately, some owners do not believe this rule applies to them and their perfect pets. Within minutes our day dissolved into horror. An unleashed dog, whose owner was several yards away, viciously attacked Eva, our 60 lb. black lab mix. The dog severely “de-gloved” our precious pet…meaning her pelt was ripped halfway off her back. Skinned alive. Several hours of surgery, and hundreds of stitches were required to put her back together again. All of this could have been avoided if the owner had simply leashed his pet. It is a San Diego city ordinance that states all dogs must be leashed when walking on public streets and parks. Don’t think this will never happen to you… if pet owners don’t take the first step in leashing their dogs, you might be the next victim.

BUTTERFLY continued from page 1 200 butterfly memorials in cities nationwide. “It is very exciting to see what Del Mar Heights Elementary School is doing,” she said. Price works with cofounder Jan Landau and project coordinator Rebeca Besquin to promote Holocaust education beyond the walls of Carmel Valley’s SDJA. “At first we were keeping all the butterflies at SDJA,” Price said, noting that students at several other local schools have participated in the project and sent the ceramic butterflies to SDJA. “We changed gears three years ago to invite others to make their own memorials. It is a better way to educate, as the kids see the butterflies each day and remember.” The ceramic butterflies are shaped from clay, and are then painted, glazed and mounted for display. The Del Mar Heights students’ butterflies will be displayed in the school’s Multi-Use Room. Price’s goal is “to reach as many children, parents, teachers and Holocaust survivors as we possibly can over the next five years so we can meet our goal of 1.5 million butterflies displayed worldwide in multiple locations,” she said. “No small feat … and every butterfly counts.” Inspired by the documentary “Paper Clips” and the poem “The Butterfly” written by a child during the Holocaust, the project is called “Zikaron V’tikvah” – Hebrew for remembrance and hope. The project asks participants to “remember the past, act responsibly in the present, and create a more peaceful future.” Wendy Wardlow, principal of Del Mar Heights, said her students are being taught historical lessons about the millions of people who were killed in the Holocaust. “It’s hard to imagine the numbers. But each one was a precious person; each one was part of a family,” she said. “Butterflies are a sign of new life. By our lives, we can honor theirs.” Resilient human spirit Wardlow came upon the Butterfly Project after seek-

ing a meaningful project for her 65 outgoing sixthgraders this year that would expand their horizons and provide them with a richer education beyond the subjects they learn in school. The purpose, she said, is not just to teach about one of the darkest chapters in modern human history, but also to help students understand the need for individuals to speak out against prejudice and injustice, promote tolerance and empathy, and defend democracy. “I want our students to understand the power and the vulnerability of our democracy,” she said. “They should never take their freedom for granted.” Wardlow also hopes to transmit lessons about resilience of the human spirit. “I also want them to understand there is hope and that they can overcome incomprehensible obstacles,” she said. Wardlow said the teachers enthusiastically embraced the project, which began months ago with films and books and included a personal visit from local Holocaust survivor Ben Midler (see sidebar) who spoke to the children about his experiences in concentration camps during World War II and how he overcame bitterness and anger and learned to look to the future with joy. Del Mar Heights sixthgrade student Elane Moon said the Holocaust speaker taught her that it’s important “not to give in to sadness.” Wardlow said the impact of having Midler speak to the children was profound. “I think the personal connection our students made when listening to a survivor describe such a horrific world event will remain with them into the future,” she said. “It’s critical we make connections with our students so they understand why it is important for them to learn about the events in our world history.” “No one lesson will ever be enough for our young people to understand the suffering and ability for others to turn a blind eye, but it is a start,” Price said. “The experience of hearing the survivor tell their story, standing with dignity and determination to speak for those who

never had the chance to speak, is a life-changing milestone for those in the room.” Price said students feel empowered to speak out against injustice after meeting Holocaust survivors, many of whom were their age when they were taken from their families by the Nazis and forced to suffer unimaginable atrocities. “We are so grateful when we see people of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds clutch at their hearts with compassion for the suffering that the survivor endured just for being who they were: a Jewish child born in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Price said. Wardlow said all the children “get it,” as evidenced in the moving letters each child wrote to Ben Midler (see sidebar). “And I think when they are older, they will reflect on what they learned and get it at an even deeper level,” she said. “These lessons will provide a base of understanding to guide them throughout their lives.” Shaping America’s government Price said the Butterfly Project has been an effective tool to begin teaching children about the Holocaust, because it connects the children to history through art. “When we have an opportunity for a public school to bring the Butterfly Project and its many layers to their students, we are always moved by the genuine compassion that is generated,” Price said in an email. One critical component of the project for both Price and Wardlow is the need for students to understand their role in shaping America’s government. “We believe the students are learning that they are very lucky to be living in the U.S.A.,” Price said. “When, as at Del Mar Heights Elementary School, there is an education component such as watching the documentary ‘Paperclips’ and having long discussions about the gradual stripping away of legal rights and possessions and the idea of ‘superior’ races, the students are asked to consider how this could happen and what would they do if liv-

Del Mar Heights sixth-graders — clockwise from bottom left, Sherrie Antoun, Caitlin Puglisi, Jaspreet Missan, Gokce Boz, Elane Moon and Tommy Merritt — paint butterflies. ing in that time. A lot of soul-searching takes place.” The Heights students have already made their clay butterflies, Wardlow said, and will be painting and glazing them in the next few weeks. To prepare, each student was given a brief biography of a Holocaust child, and each student’s butterfly is dedicated to that child. “On the back of their butterflies, each student wrote the name of a child who was in the Holocaust,” she said. “On the front, they wrote words like ‘re-

member,’ ‘peace,’ ‘hope,’ ‘love.’” Sherrie Antoun’s butterfly was dedicated to a girl who was 5 when she was killed by the Nazis. “We are learning that we take our lives for granted,” said the Heights sixth-grader. Several students, during the painting of their butterflies under the supervision of Del Mar Heights art instructor Jacque Folgner, were impacted by the knowledge that Ben Midler was about their age when he was taken from his family and sent to Nazi concentration camps. They all

agreed with sixth-grader Caitlin Puglisi when she said, “You can’t even imagine what he must have gone through.” Caitlin said she is learning through the Butterfly Project “to act responsibly in the present and to not be prejudiced.” “We are honored to be included in this project,” said Wardlow, who plans to make the Butterfly Project an annual sixth-grade event. “One of my goals as the principal of Del Mar Heights is for our students to be compassionate and to engage their hearts as well as their minds. While we focus on building their skills in reading, writing and mathematics, it is equally important for them to learn to think critically, to question authority, to be brave and use their voices for good.” When students have a chance to express their emotions through art by making a ceramic butterfly that memorializes a child, Price said they show the world “that this living child today has a voice and won’t stand for injustice.”

Week in Sports: CCHS wins — again! By Gideon Rubin Baseball Cathedral Catholic won its third San Diego Section Div. III title in four years, defeating El Capitan 3-2 in the June 4 title game at San Diego State’s Tony Gwynn Stadium. The Dons trailed 2-1 in the top of the fifth when Nico Garbella’s two-run double gave them a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Daniel Camarena tossed a complete-game two-hitter. He allowed two runs (one earned) and struck out six while allowing one walk. Garbella had two of the Dons’ six hits. Stephen Haviar added one hit and one RBI. Matt Boermeester had two hits and drove in the game’s only run for Cathedral Catholic. The Dons advanced to the finals after defeating Monte Vista 1-0 in a thrilling eight-inning June 2 semifinal. Gonsalves, who was credited with the victory, pitched one inning scoreless inning in relief of starter Michael Martin, who struck out six batters and allowed one walk in seven innings of six-hit ball. The Dons improved their overall record for the season to 30-4. ***** Getting to the Div. V finals was no easy task for Santa Fe Christian. But once they got there, the Eagles made quick work of Horizon in an 8-1 victory at Cathedral Catholic High on June 3. The Eagles lost to Calvary Christian 6-2 in a double-elimination tournament semifinal on May 31, but they bounced back for a 4-3 against Calvary Christian two days later.

By Dave Stall Q. Loren: I just bought a brand new Volkswagen and it has a very annoying problem. Every time I close the door with the windows up, it doesn’t shut. I have to slam it! I took it to the dealer and they said that the car was airtight and this was the result. Is there anything I can do to correct this annoying problem?

A. Dave:

The alternative to your problem is wind noise or in a worse case scenario, a wind whistle. This is not uncommon in the European cars. What I would do is make sure that the doors are adjusted properly by the dealer and if the situation still persists, then lower one of the windows about one-eighth of an inch so air can escape when you close the doors.

Q. Darlene:

I just bought a brand new Mustang convertible and I just love the car, but last week when I was at church someone backed into my car and pushed the bumper in so bad I can hardly drive the car — not that it won’t drive, it just looks so bad I get sick to my stomach whenever I go near the car. I did take it to the dealership I bought it from and they were very nice. The body shop manager said the repair would be around $1,200. I almost fainted. My dad said I should get ahold of you, seems you helped him with a car problem and you impressed him. Hope you can impress me!

A. Dave: I’m really sorry you were hit in the bumper — but all is not lost. There are a few companies out there that do bumper repair at reasonable prices. I have used Bumper Doc a few times with excellent results. The last bumper I had them repair had a hole in the bumper the size of a baseball. Today, you can’t even tell it was ever hit! Good luck!

Q. Jose: My son has just shipped off to the Middle East and left me his pride and joy — a 2000 Harley Davidson F-150 Ford pickup. No one has driven his truck except him. My question is how do I store his truck so that when he comes back, it will be in as good of shape as when he left? He said I could drive it but with my luck, something would happen. I would like to store it in my garage, covered and ready for him when he returns in approximately 13 months.

A. Dave: If your son said to drive it, then drive it. He must feel the truck will be in better shape if you drive it versus parking it in the garage for 13 months. I would agree that driving it is the best, but if you still want to store it, here are a few tips: Change the oil and filter, fill the gas tank with fuel and add a stabilizer, either put the truck up on jack stands or inflate the tires to 10 pounds above recommendation. Give the truck a full wax job, leave the windows down about a quarter of an inch for ventilation, treat the interior with a leather preserver and then put towels over the seats. Last but not least, I would buy a battery tender that will keep the battery fresh. I would check the battery fluid level before adding the battery tender and check it once per month to make sure the water level doesn’t drop below the plates. If it were my son, I would drive the wheels off that truck. Maybe enter a car show around town and surprise him with a trophy or two! Being an X-GI my heart goes out to your son and everyone who serves.

TPHS track stars Billmeyer, Carpowich to run in Adidas Dream Mile Torrey Pines High School athletes Alli Billmeyer and Matt Carpowich were both recently invited to run in the Adidas/Jim Ryun High School Dream Mile to be held in New York this Saturday, June 11. At this event the top 12 boys and girls high school milers from across the U.S. will compete as part of the New York Grand Prix, a track meet featuring top athletes from around the world. The event, held at Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island, in Manhattan, will include more than two dozen Olympic and World Champions. In their senior seasons at Torrey Pines High School, Billmeyer and Carpowich ran the nation’s fourth and fifth fastest U.S. high school mile times, respectively. After winning San Diego CIF Championships on May 28, both athletes went on to have record setting performances this past weekend at the California CIF State Track and Field Championship in Clovis, Calif. Billmeyer and Carpowich will graduate from TPHS as holders of six or more school Track & Field records apiece. This season Billmeyer also became the San Diego Section’s all-time record holder in the 1600M and 3200M distances. “Personally, I never thought I would have athletes like this to work with that have achieved what these two have achieved,” said long-time TPHS distance coach Brent Thorne. “I’m most proud of them for their willingness of not just to work hard, but to do all the extras that have taken them to this level of success.” Billmeyer and Carpowich will both attend Stanford University this fall where they will run track and cross country for the Cardinal, historically one of the strongest NCAA Division I programs in the nation.

Torrey Pines High School seniors Alli Billmeyer and Matt Carpowich, pictured here with TPHS distance track coach Brent Thorne, will both compete in the Adidas Golden Stripes Dream Mile on June 11, 2011 in New York. This event includes the nation’s top boys and girls high school track athletes in the mile this season.

Steven Osinski with Tracie Davidson, who was named SDSU’s top Business School graduate for 2011.

Former CEO finds calling in academia Del Mar resident Steven Osinski was once at the helm of his own advertising agency, though he’s now left corporate America for academia. Osinski was founder and CEO of the Smart Group, which specialized in the direct marketing for the nation’s largest wireless carriers, including what are now known as Verizon Wireless and Nextel. In the late 1990s, Smart Group was acquired by, at which point Osinski served as a vice president of marketing, overseeing a half billion in revenues for two years. Today he is teaching those real world marketing and sales skills to local college students at the College of Business Administration at San Diego State University. Osinski, who also serves on the board of directors for the School of Business, was also recently awarded the “2011 Outstanding Faculty Award” from SDSU for his impact in the marketing department. In addition to spearheading advertising for several major corporations, such as Bell Atlantic and BellSouth, Osinski has served on numerous boards and in multiple nonprofit organizations throughout San Diego, including Chairmen’s Roundtable, CONNECT, Junior Achievement and the San Diego Social Venture Partners. Osinski attended the University of Miami where he earned his undergraduate degree in communications and an MBA in marketing. He is married and has two daughters. One daughter attends the University of Michigan and the other attends Torrey Pines High School.

NuttZo shells it out to kids CV couple’s multi-nut butter is helping to improve lives of orphans around the world in several ways Danielle LiVolsi with orphans in Nepal BY KAREN BILLING Staff Writer Eating NuttZo multi-nut butter has more benefits than getting a healthy dose of Omega-3s — it is helping change the lives of the world’s orphans by the spoonful. Created by Carmel Valley mom Danielle LiVolsi, 1 percent of the gross sales of NuttZo goes to help Project Left Behind, a nonprofit she runs with her husband, Kevin, to support orphanages around the world with basic needs and care. In the three years since NuttZo and Project Left Behind were created, they have donated nearly $10,000. Adopting their two children Matthew and Gregory from Ukraine changed the LiVolsis’ lives in many ways. The new additions to their family were the impetus for NuttZo, as Danielle created the nut butter to help her children’s vitamin deficiencies. The organic, multi-nut butter combines Valencia peanuts with cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. Their new peanutfree NuttZo is a seven-nut- and-seed butter with all the ingredients of the original NuttZo, minus peanuts and plus chia and pumpkin seeds.

Kevin LiVolsi with an orphan in Guatemala Since 2009, the brand has expanded and grown, and is now available in more than 300 stores, including Jimbo’s, Whole Foods, Seaside Markets, Henry’s,

Village Mill Bread Company, Zinc’s Café and Good On Ya Deli. Traveling to Ukraine twice to adopt Gregory in 2002 and Matthew in 2005 from separate orphanages, the couple’s eyes were opened to the plight of orphans there. They understood the problem was much bigger than Ukraine as UNICEF estimates there are between 143 million to 210 million orphans worldwide. The creation of NuttZo also gave the couple the opportunity to establish Project Left Behind. Project Left Behind operates in three major categories: Human touch, surrogate nurturing and nutrition/health. Their projects have helped bring blankets to orphans in Haiti, furnished the House of Hope in Molo, Africa, with basic essentials, funded an Abandoned Babies and Children project in Kenya, and helped the SPOON Foundation’s orphan’s nutrition project in Kazakhstan. The human touch category of their service is perhaps the most important, allowing Danielle and Kevin to travel to areas in need directly. In 2009, Danielle visited Nepal, both went to Guatamala in 2010, and in

Inness’ paintings of Italy ‘molto bello’ in new show at Timken The Timken Museum of Art will be the exclusive West Coast venue for “George Inness in Italy,” an exhibition of Italian landscapes by the American painter, June 10-Sept. 18. Organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this is the first exhibition to examine Inness’s two Italian sojourns (1851– 1852 and 1870–1874) and their impact on his experimentation with style, composition, and subject as he sought inspiration in both the art of the Old Masters and his personal experiences of the places they painted. A highlight of the exhibition is the Timken’s own “L’Ariccia” (1874), Inness’s most representative of the three paintings exhibited from his second trip to Italy. For Inness, Italy provided the paradigm of the “civilized landscape,” which he held up as the “ideal” for its ability to express human sentiment through nature, famously

Painter George Inness • Born: Newburgh, N.Y., May 1, 1825 • Died: Bridge of Allan in Scotland, Aug. 3, 1894 • Work influenced by the Old Masters, the Hudson River school, the Barbizon school, and, finally, by the theology of Emanuel Swedenborg, whose spiritualism found vivid expression in the work of Inness’ maturity. He’s best known for these works that helped define the Tonalist Movement. • Personal: Married Delia Miller in 1849. She died a few months later. In 1850, he married Elizabeth Abigail Hart. They had six children. • His son, George Inness, Jr., who also became a landscape painter of note, was born in Paris. declaring that the aim of art “is not to instruct, not to edify, but to awaken an

emotion.” The show will offer visitors 10 oil paintings

and one watercolor. Inness’s first major work completed in Italy, “Twilight on the Campagna” (1851) Philadelphia Museum of Art, has not been on view since 1952. Its reemergence and restoration, precipitated by a publication of Inness’s entire body of work issued in 2007, constituted a significant rediscovery. Each landscape is filled with a poetic sentiment, encapsulating the topography with an “orchestrated intricacy.” Inness enjoyed his most productive years during his second stay in Italy. His paintings sold well, both as mementos for affluent American travelers, and as progressive stylistic experiments for leading collectors of American landscape painting. Inness is admired as the pioneer of Tonalism, distinguished by soft focus and diaphanous layers of paint. Although Inness returned to the states in 1874, he continued to

Summer jazz series gets under way at the Athenaeum

La Jolla Cultural Partners

Summer concerts return to the 150-seat Joan and Irwin Jacobs Music Room at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library with the annual Farrell Family Jazz series. It opens 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 14 with the Gilbert Castellanos Quartet and guest trumpeter James Zollar. This performance opens a yearlong series, “Night of the Cookers: Tribute to the Trumpet Masters,” hosted by San Diego– based trumpet-master Castellanos at a variety of venues. For this concert, he leads Eric Reed on piano, Hamilton Price on bass, and NYCbased drummer Willie Jones III. Recognized as a new American master by DownBeat, Castellanos has established himself among the nation’s most inventive improvisers. He is joined for this show by fellow trumpeter James Zollar, who makes his first Athenaeum appearance since 2004. Zollar spent his high school and early adult years in San Diego, moving in 1985 to New York City. Zollar’s credits include work with artists such as the Duke Ellington and Count Basie orchestras, Don Byron, David Murray, Mongo Santamaria, Frank Foster, and Wynton Marsalis’ Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra.

Gilbert Castellanos Next up Friday, July 1 is a return visit by Israeli clarinetist and saxophonist Anat Cohen, who made her Athenaeum debut last spring with a tribute to Benny Goodman. She will be joined by Joe Martin on bass, Daniel Freedman on drums, and a pianist to be announced. She is conversant with modern and traditional jazz, classical music, Brazilian choro, Argentine tango, and an expansive timeline of Afro-Cuban styles. The series continues Thursday,

July 21 with a return performance by New York–based vocalist Kendra Shank, with Hamilton Price on bass, and two musicians to be announced on piano on drums. Shank’s most recent CD, “A Spirit Free: Abbey Lincoln Songbook,” was listed among the top jazz CDs of 2007. The Boston Globe commented, “This vocalist makes lyrics believable, invents like an instrumentalist, and has an ear second to none for little-known and unknown tunes. She also functions

like a true equal with her excellent rhythm section.” The series ends Wednesday, July 27 with a San Diego debut by NYC-based Edmar Castaneda Trio, featuring improvising Colombian harpist Castaneda with trombonist Marshall Gilkes, and drummer/percussionist Dave Silliman. A native of Bogota, Castaneda has been taking New York and major international jazz festivals by storm with his unique approach to Latin jazz via the traditional Colombian arpa llanera. In addition to leading his own groups, he’s been chosen as a guest soloist by artists like Paquito D’Rivera, Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, John Scofield, and John Patitucci. JazzTimes commented “the phenomenal Colombian harpist Edmar Castaneda, whose technically astounding approach to the instrument has been registering with ‘scenesters’ over the past year, covers independent, heavily grooving bass lines with his left hand while chording and also running counterpoint melodies and dazzling triplet figures with his right hand. [He brings] a kind of Charlie Hunter or Joe Passian approach to the harp.”

to seniors through acting troupe

BY DIANE Y. WELCH Contributor If laughter is the best medicine then Del Mar residents Mary Ann and Bud Emerson must surely be doctors of mirth. Through their involvement with a senior acting group known as “The Script in Hand Players,� they bring sidesplitting merriment to other seniors. Their performances are not only fun for the couple but uplifting for them, too, said Mary Ann Emerson. “It may sound corny but nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing older people, sometimes in wheelchairs and unable to get out, with big smiles on their faces appreciating what we are bringing to them. It doesn’t get any better than that.� The retired husband and wife team joined the 14-member theater group seven years ago. And since then they have brought laughter through their humorous skits to hundreds of seniors countywide who can’t get out to the theater. The troupe visits about two to four senior centers almost every month, each time choosing about 10 skits from their extensive library. Material comes from different sources. “Just recently someone was sent a funny story via email and we were able to expand it into a skit,� said Bud Emerson. Some skits

Mary Ann and Bud Emerson perform with “The Script in Hand Players.� are written by members who are talented scriptwriters, and some are scenes from Broadway plays. A mailer goes out twice a year to numerous senior center activity directors. As a result, the troupe gets a lot of repeat business and has amassed enough material so they don’t have to restage the same programs. Rehearsals take place every Monday at Wesley Palms Senior Center in Pacific Beach. One of the troupe members — the oldest member at 94 — lives there. Some members have acting credentials and although the scripts are read, the programs are animated, well rehearsed and costumed for dramatic effect. Launched almost 20 years ago by six founders,

the troupe performs at community centers, retirement homes, birthday parties, private homes, mobile home parks, clubs, and places of worship. In some of the assisted living facilities where they perform there is a high level of loneliness and isolation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And what we do mainly is make them laugh and forget about their situation for a while,â&#x20AC;? said Mary Ann, who said that one of her favorite characters is a real estate agent desperately trying to sell a haunted house. The 14 members are a tight-knit group and are friends dedicated to their mission of bringing entertainment to seniors. New members have to audition to join the group as openings become available. They have a proven belief that humor and insight can be found in human behavior and they love to laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just gas it up,â&#x20AC;? said Bud Emerson. And even though they have done skits repeatedly they try using different actors and different accents to keep it fun for themselves. Especially satisfying for the Emersons is the opportunity to enjoy this endeavor at this point in their lives during their retirement. They rehearse at home and offer each other honest critique. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is wonderful to be able to be doing something together that is both worthwhile and so much fun,â&#x20AC;? said Mary Ann.

She remembers a young 8-year-old girl walking to school in broken shoes that were much too big, crying every step of the way. The experience created one of NuttZo’s favorite projects, supplying shoes to Nepal’s Aishworya Orphanage children—it’s a project they’ve done every year since 2009. “It’s something I never would’ve seen unless I had visited,” Danielle said. In Thailand, Danielle learned that the biggest problems for children in Bangkok include the proliferation of child trafficking, as well as an AIDS epidemic among street kids. From her visit, Danielle hopes to get a project going to get AIDS medication to

Bertrand at Mister A’s offers 360-degree views of America’s Finest City. The halibut is the signature dish right now, while it is in season from Alaska.

At Bertrand at Mister A’s, the fare steps up to the view BY WILL PARSON owering above Banker’s Hill is a 360-degree panorama that perhaps only a true San Diegan can fully appreciate. The all-inclusive view bares all, and the trained eye can spend an entire meal at Bertrand at Mister A’s just picking out local landmarks. It’s the view that helped make the original Mister A’s the place to be from the 1960s to the 1980s. But its revival a decade ago is more a testament to owner Bertrand Hug’s well-choreographed staff, which knows full well that every night is special for someone at one of the city’s most romantic restaurants. Hug’s favorite time to be on the deck is indeed at night, when he says downtown really sparkles. A San Diegan since 1973, Hug said the view impressed him well before he became the owner. “I wanted to buy (Mister A’s) forever,” he said. “Any time I would pick up friends or family at the airport, I would take them immediately up to the restaurant to show them my city.” After taking over in 2000, Hug completely redecorated the redvelvet interior and furnished the deck that had so impressed him

■ This week: Bertrand at Mister A’s European White Asparagus Soup from Chef Stephane Voitzwinkler in the first place. Nowadays the patio offers a more casual experience at a place formerly associated with dinner jackets. And for six years, Chef de Cuisine Stéphane Voitzwinkler has worked with Hug to produce an American menu with French and Mediterranean accents, buying the freshest ingredients from local sources like Chino Farms in Rancho Santa Fe. “Our thing is changing the menu pretty much once a week or every two weeks to adapt to what is freshest,” said Hug. “We buy whatever is going to be the best.” Very recent additions to the

menu include line-caught, grilled Copper River salmon, sautéed wild Alaskan halibut, as well as a prime rib eye from Brandt Beef. The dinner menu really goes all out, so bear that in mind when you get your check. Aside from the view, the additional advantage of sitting outside (or at the bar) is that you are able to order off the patio and happy hour menus. This is likely the best way to get a low-key introduction to Bertrand at Mister A’s. At a restaurant that doesn’t hold back, even the macaroni and cheese (and the truffle fries) have quite a reputation of their own.

The surf contest/beach concert “Switchfoot Bro-Am Presented By Hurley” is set for Saturday, June 18 at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. It is the centerpiece in a weekend of activities conceived by local rockers Switchfoot to give back to their community and benefit the San Diego and Oceanside chapters of StandUp For Kids ( This nonprofit volunteer outreach organization is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of at-risk, homeless and street kids. Since its inception in 2005, the Bro-Am has raised more than $400,000. Last year’s event was the most successful to date, drawing some 7,500 attendees and raising more than $135,000 for the local chapters of StandUp For Kids. While admission to the beach event is free, funds are raised at an Auction Night Soiree (June 16 at a La Jolla Shores residence, tickets

Philanthropic teens providing a voice for those in need Five philanthropically-minded high school students from Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) organized a speech and music festival on Saturday, May 21, in Del Marâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Auberge amphitheatre to benefit the UCSD EyeMobile, a mobile eye clinic that provides eye care to young children in need throughout San Diego County. The teen nonprofit group, called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Speaking Out for Others,â&#x20AC;? was formed two years ago by CCA junior Daniel King, 17, as a way to provide a voice for those in need. According to King, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can use our voice to help speak for those who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, then we have done our job as good citizens to help advance the causes of those in need.â&#x20AC;? This was the third event of the speech troupe. Each teen took their turn at the podium detailing the impact of low vision on a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s educational progress, and inspiring passersby to donate to the mobile Eye Clinic. According to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Speaking Out for Othersâ&#x20AC;? member Brian Sandler, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The EyeMobile provides hope for an education, hope for a way out of poverty, and hope for the future.â&#x20AC;? The other troupe members Glen Borok, Angelina Woo, and Gilad Moskowitz provided equally inspirational words to raise voluntary donations. The UCSD EyeMobile screens hundreds of young children annually. By visiting underserved communities, the mobile eye clinic identifies and treats eye disorders at an early age, when treatment can make a large impact. At the fundraiser, members of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Speaking Out for Othersâ&#x20AC;? challenged the community of Del Mar to see the world through the eyes of those who cannot. Group members continuously reminded their audience that a simple donation of $48 was enough to give the gift of sight to one child. Their efforts were further enhanced by their backup band Street Heart and by the Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Auberge Hotel, which generously donated 50 lunches that were sold to aid in fundraising. Ultimately, the fundraiser was a rousing success. Within the course of two hours, the group managed to

raise $3,000 in donations from members of the public, including a matched donation by their corporate sponsor Home Dialysis Therapies of San Diego. All proceeds were gratefully received by the EyeMobileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director, Dr. Barbara Brody. Because of the efforts of this philanthropic group of teens, 58 more children in San Diego will be given the gift of sight. If you would like to donate to the EyeMobile, please contact via email: shileyeye.ucsd. edu/eyemobile or call the UCSD Division of Community Opthalmology at (858) 822-2831.

Kyle Cameron and Nicole Kelder enjoyed sharing their study of gradients and directional derivatives.

On Thursday, May 19, at Torrey Pines High School 120 students from Abby Brown’s Calculus II, Calculus II, Introduction to Linear Algebra, and Advanced Topics in Mathematics II classes shared projects with family, friends, and community members at the annual TPHS Advanced Math Open House. Topics ranged from pure mathematics to biology, chemistry, physics, economics, art, and gaming. Students selected their own project ideas and many chose to find real world applications of the math they have been studying. The event is a culmination of the work they have done all year in these classes that are part of a special program with San Diego State University. University professors also attended the event and talked to students about their work. The students take these classes at Torrey Pines but receive college credits through SDSU. “Each year my students have better, more creative projects for the Open House. This year had fantastic energy and our highest attendance ever. I believe we had close to 400 people visit with the students and enjoy their projects. This event is always a highlight of my year and it gives the students a chance to celebrate what they are learning in a noncompetitive way,” says Brown, the students’ math teacher.

Sarah Hsu and Winnie Ma applied their calculus studies to an example from biology.

Shape up on geometry at new Science Center exhibit Not visitors to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center’s new “Geometry Playground” exhibition opening Saturday, June 11 for a year-long run. Hands-on exhibits will have guests playing a goofy game of hopscotch, climbing a structure of giant multi-sided shapes, crawling through corkscrew tunnels and creating geometric works of art — all while exploring the patterns, angles, arcs and shapes that make up the most visual branch of math. In addition to more than 20 informative exhibits, the show includes the Geometry Garden Pavilion, a collection of natural and manmade curiosities created by artists and craftspeople (from crystals to spiraling seashells) revealing the beauty that emerges from the basic rules of geometry. “Geometry Playground” is a traveling exhibition, produced by the Exploratorium in San Francisco and funded, in part, by a grant from the Viterbi Family Foundation. While at the Science Center, take in an IMAX film in the Heikoff Dome Theater,

There are many ‘manly’ foods to serve for Dad’s Day The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE L. KAUFMAN Contributor Here’s a primer on the fabulous fruits, veggies and nuts that real men like (and need) to eat with one mitt while clutching the television remote in the other. There’s a quiz at the end just for the fun of it. The Heavyweights The quintessential fruit of summer is the juicy, thirstquenching watermelon. A cousin to the cucumber and pumpkin, the watermelon is now considered both a fruit and veggie. There are more than 1,200 varieties grown globally. This fat- and cholesterolfree behemoth is packed with fiber and Vitamins A, C and B to dial-up energy. Ninety-two percent water, they’re naturally high in potassium and electrolytes for balance and hydration. The

beautiful pinky hue endows it with the highest concentration of lycopene, making watermelons your prostate’s best friend. Recent studies have also shown them to be Mother Nature’s Viagra containing a phytonutrient citrulline that relaxes blood vessels just like the little blue pill. The Lightweights Tomatoes, the most popular fruit in the world, although it most frequently multi-tasks as a veggie, is a close cousin to other nightshades including eggplant, chili peppers and potatoes. Defined by its botanical name, Solanum lycopersicum, tomatoes are another lycopene powerhouse, running a close second behind watermelons. Cooking tomatoes releases even more lycopene than eating them raw, so make a pot of mighty marinara. And since lycopene is also fat soluble, eat it with some fat. Pizza anyone? Going Ape Bananas are men’s most popular fruit of choice. Like a remote control, they’re portable, fit nicely into the palm, and allow you to multi-task. Giving a quick energy boost and motherload of potassium and Vitamin B-6, bananas tend to calm the nerves, reduce heart rate and blood pressure, and amp up the immune system. So whip up a smoothie, bake banana bread or slice it straightup in your cereal.

Eat Here, Get Gas Put the skids on heart disease, colon and male-oriented prostate and bladder cancers (the latter strikes men three times greater than women) with cruciferous veggies. Yes–real men eat coleslaw, sauerkraut, stir-fried broccoli and roasted Brussels. Cruciferous veggies contain weapons of mass disease destruction including stinky phytochemical sulfur compounds, Vitamin C and potassium. A recent Harvard study suggests 5 servings of crucifers a week to ward off the bad guys. Crack the Nut The mighty Brazil nut with truckloads of antioxidant magnesium and selenium lowers “bad” cholesterol levels, reduces the occurrence of blood clots, and has also been linked to prostate protection. Standing advice with this selenium superfood — moderation. Fuzz and Pits Peaches, either white or yellow, the former enjoyed for their low acidity are good sources of carotenes, potassium, flavonoids, lycopene and lutein. This combo of phytochemicals has been found to put the skids on prostate cancer and heart disease. Stave these off with a warm spinach and grilled peach salad, curried salmon with peach chutney, gingered peach cobbler, or eat them in hand for an energy-


boosting snack. The apricot, which resembles a dwarfed peach in shape, skin color and fuzzy complexion is a mini-power-

house loaded with lycopene, Vitamin A and beta-carotene for prostate, skin and eye health. Low in sodium, calories and fat apricots are a guiltless treat. In honor of these virile foods and all the dads out there, here’s a simple recipe dad can enjoy on his special day while transfixed to the Chicago Cubs/Yankee game or some other testosterone-addictive event: Alpha-Male Apricot Salsa 1 cup diced, fresh apricots 1/2 fresh pineapple, diced 1 avocado, diced 2 tablespoons lime juice 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped 1/4 sweet onion, minced 1 red pepper, diced Sea salt and cayenne pepper to taste Ingredients: In a glass bowl, blend the ingredients. Cover and chill. Serve with dad’s favorite chips and remote control.
