Car burglary suspects arrested in Carmel Valley Three men suspected in 21 area incidents BY KAREN BILLING A community member keeping watch on their neighborhood led to the arrest of three suspects who may be responsible for 21 car burglaries in the Carmel Valley area.

“This is a great example of citizens being our eyes and ears and calling the police when they see suspicious activity,” said Sgt. Ernesto Servin of the San Diego Police Department’s Northwestern Division. According to Servin, on June 18 at 7:20 a.m., a neighbor called the police to report three suspects with flashlights looking into cars in the

apartment complex parking lot at Kellam Court and Quarter Mile Drive. The witness described the men as Asian males wearing dark clothing, gloves and driving a white Honda. Officers responded and located the suspects next to a four-door white Honda Accord. As they made contact to talk to the suspects, one

responded and was handcuffed, but the two other suspects took off on foot. Servin said the officers established a perimeter to search the area, calling in for reinforcements. As they followed the trail of the suspects, they found a loaded 9 mm handgun that the suspects had alleg-

BY KAREN BILLING The California Department of Transportation, or Caltrans, hosted its only public meeting on the Interstate 5/State Route 56 draft environmental impact report (DEIR) on June 13 at Del Mar Hills Academy. The agency seeks public input as it looks at four possible alternatives to make the missing linkages between I-5 South and 56 East, and 56 West and I-5 North. Allan Kosup, Caltrans I-5 corridor director, said they are tasked with finding a solution that is sensitive to the community and the en-

vironment while addressing local congestion, cutthrough traffic and regional connections. “There’s no preferred alternative at this point, so public input in this process is a very important part in the selection of the preferred alternative,” Kosup said. The comment period for the DEIR has been extended to the maximum 60 days, ending on July 17. Kosup said they expect to make their decision on the preferred alternative by the end of 2012. The final EIR would be released in late 2013, with project construction targeted for 2020-2030 if any build option is selected. The need for the 5/56 interchange improvements comes in looking forward to

The City of Solana Beach worked for more than a decade in drafting a longterm land-use plan to steer development in the city, and in March the California Coastal Commission approved the plan. But some residents aren’t keen on the state entity’s hefty list of

modifications made to the plan that the Solana Beach City Council and community once agreed upon in 2008, and they are asking the City Council to bring the issue up in a meeting as soon as possible. “The will of the community was subverted when


of general obligation bond

BY KAREN BILLING The Del Mar Union School District received positive results on its general obligation bond feasibility survey at a June 14 special meeting. The survey indicated that 64 percent of surveyed voters would be willing to support a measure on the November ballot if the district opted to go in that direction. The board is expected to make a final decision on the bond at its

the Dolinka Group, with help from True North Research and TBWB Strategies. The survey was given by telephone to 300 district voters who are likely to participate in the November 2012 election. The calls were made from May 26 to June 5, lasting 17 minutes per call. Tim McLarney, president of True North Research, said that because November is a presidential election it is an easy

After successful petition, medical pot initiative comes before Del Mar council

Lagoon conservancy board member of 25 years receives prestigious honor

• Solana Beach expected to qualify ballot measure by end of week After collecting signatures of well over 10 percent of Del Mar voters, a political group dedicated to improving access to medical marijuana asked the Del Mar City Council on June 18 to adopt an ordinance allowing for medical marijuana dispensaries while also regulating and taxing them. “Del Mar residents had the single highest voting record in favor of Prop 19 in 2010, which is a complete legalization measure. Almost 60 percent of residents voted in favor of it,” said James Schmachtenberger, president of the Patient Care Association, which brought forth the bill. “So if this measure is to go to the ballot, it’s pretty much definitive, I believe, that people will vote it in.” While the group was hoping to bypass an election with immediate passage of the Compassionate Use Dispensary Regulation and Taxation Ordinance in order to serve medical pot patients in Del Mar sooner rather than possibly later, Del Mar officials opted to instead receive a report on the measure. By doing so, the City Council will have the choice to either adopt the ordinance within 10 days of receiving the report, to be issued by mid-July, or order an election. More than 500 signatures were collected in Del Mar, said Cynara Velazquez of Citizens for Patients Rights. Only 298 were needed to qualify the ballot measure, which would go to vote in November. Del Mar was the first city to qualify the initiative via petitioning, and the Patient Care Association expects to qualify ballot

measures in Solana Beach and Lemon Grove by the end of the week and in Encinitas by the end of the month. The proposed compassionate use dispensary ordinance would impose a 2.5 percent sales tax on medical pot to benefit the city’s general fund. Dispensaries would be regulated by the City of Del Mar’s planning department and operated by collectives, cooperatives, or associations of qualified patients and primary caregivers who cultivate, exchange and distribute medical cannabis in a closed circuit in compliance with state law, according to the proposed ordinance. Councilman Don Mosier, a former physician, said he agrees that there are appropriate compassionate uses of medical cannabis, but passing the proposed measure in Del Mar would present a conundrum. “If we were to accept this as written we would be in violation of federal law and therefore we would not be eligible for [federal] grants,” Mosier said. He pointed to projects such as the North Torrey Pines Bridge Project that depend on federal funding, which is only made available to cities in compliance with federal regulations. Furthermore, he said it’s also not clear if the ordinance would be in violation of state law because the petition wording is “ambiguous.” In choosing to order a report on the ordinance — the only option besides adopting it or sending it to ballot immediately — the

After 25 years of service on the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy board, and several terms as board president, Denise Stillinger has decided to make 2012 her last year as board president. In conjunction with that decision and her quarter-century of dedication, District 3 County Supervisor Pam Slater-Price has pro-

claimed June 19, 2012 “Denise Stillinger Day” throughout the county of San Denise Stillinger Diego. “We do a lot of really good projects but we always need help and there’s not enough time in the day,”

said conservancy director Doug Gibson, who enjoyed working with Stillinger for the 16 years he’s been part of the nonprofit. “[Stillinger] is usually one of the first people to step up and say ‘I’ll be there,’ or ‘I can do that.’ Not only does she offer that, but she has the expertise and knowledge to go out there and do anything and we feel confident in her abilities.”

Del Mar Council continues discussion on revitalization, addresses concerns from public comment period BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

Increasing bulk and mass and changing the character of Del Mar Village were among citizen concerns presented June 18 in a report to the Del Mar City Council summarizing the results of a public comment period on the city’s proposed revitalization plan. After hearing a number residents’ feedback, a mixture of positive and negative, the City Council spent approximately three

hours providing direction to city staff on each area of concern presented. The draft Village Specific Plan, released in March, will serve as a guide for future land use and development in Del Mar if it passes the November election. It could also change the face of downtown by increasing building height, adding roundabouts and implementing shared parking plus a parking structure, among many other changes.

Planning and community development director Kathy Garcia said there were comments received in regard to mass, which stem from the city’s proposal to increase the maximum floor area of buildings from 280,000 square feet to 600,000 square feet, in addition to more than doubling floor-area ratio (FAR). The council supports an increase in FAR to 1.0. Councilman Don Mosi-

Del Mar Mesa closer to parks, trails beautification with engineer’s report BY SUZANNE EVANS “An assessment engineer’s report is the heart and soul of a Maintenance Assessment District,” said Del Mar Mesa board member and developer Paul Metcalf, whose vision of La Jolla’s Bird Rock has culminated in a more walkable, tranquil MAD community with roundabouts slowing traffic. Metcalf and the Del Mar Mesa planning board have long championed their own MAD that provides a structure for property owners to vote, assessing themselves to pay and receive services, called a “special benefit,” above and beyond what the City normally provides. Metcalf, John Eardensohn of Latitude 33

land planning engineering, and Andy Field, city MAD manager for open space, park and recreation, presented to the Del Mar Mesa board June 14 a review of proposed Del Mar Mesa Maintenance Assessment District areas and a Latitude’s Engineer’s Report of potential yearly assessment fees for parcel owners. In sculpting a MAD for Del Mar Mesa, Metcalf said the board will choose from a long list of levels of maintenance service (high/medium/low), ranging from litter removal to trail maintenance and determine the areas the community feels should be maintained. Highlighting benefits to

parkways, trails, and level of service, the Assessment Engineer’s Report will identify maintenance improvements and assign reasonable costs. Eardensohn explained the formation of the Del Mar Mesa MAD as a rural community with a “dark sky” (no bright lights at night), open character, and no standard curbs or decomposed granite trails. It is formed by one vote for each developable property within it, not including the Grand Del Mar Hotel. The Del Mar Mesa Specific Plan places regulations on lot sizes, lighting, fencing and street design.

BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A 54-year-old San Diego woman who died of injuries suffered in bicycle wreck on a Carmel Valley street was identified as Lihsiang Chang. Chang was going north when she crashed in the 11200 block of El Camino Real, near Carmel Mountain Road, about 1:45 p.m. June 14, according the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. Passing motorists called 911, and Chang was taken to a hospital in La Jolla where she was diagnosed with a head injury and was put on life support, the Medical Examiner’s Office reported. She was taken off life support and died shortly before 5 p.m. Monday, June 18, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Motorcycle rider killed in accident on I-5 near Del Mar Heights Rd. BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A motorcycle rider was killed when he tried to use the freeway shoulder to pass traffic as he raced another vehicle through heavy post-fair traffic on Interstate 5 and rammed a car, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP). Garrett McMillian Hughes, 35, of Encinitas was riding a Harley Davidson Sportster motorcycle south on Interstate 5, approaching Del Mar Heights Road, shortly before midnight June 15, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. He was wearing a helmet. Hughes was riding at a high rate of speed and weaved in and out of traffic, then moved from the far right lane onto the shoulder to pass another vehicle. He may have been racing at the time, the Medical

Examiner’s Office said. The bike struck the back of a 1998 Honda Civic that was stopped on the shoulder and the motorcycle rider was thrown from the bike, which caused fatal injuries, according to the CHP. Traffic was reportedly jammed with patrons leaving the nearby fair at Del Mar. The Civic’s occupants, a 19-year-old Lakeside man and a 19-year-old woman from El Cajon, were not injured, the CHP said. The motorcycle then collided with a Mercury which caused the driver of that car to swerve and hit the left rear of a Chrysler, The CHP said. A passenger in the Mercury, a 21-yearold El Cajon man, sustained minor injuries, the CHP said.

CONCERNS continued from page 1 2040, where the traffic is going to be double what it is today, with increased travel times and more traffic finding its way through the community, Kosup said. The alternatives aim to lower the volume cutting through local streets and generate travel time savings. The alternatives studied in the DEIR include no build, the direct connector, auxiliary lane improvements, hybrid, and hybrid with flyover. The direct connector bridges the 56 and the 5 in both directions and adds two lanes on westbound 56 and one lane on eastbound 56 between Carmel Country Road and El Camino Real. The auxiliary lane alternative adds one auxiliary lane on southbound 5 between Del Mar Heights Road and Carmel Valley Road and provides some improvements on westbound 56 from Carmel

Country Road to El Camino Real. The hybrid alternative connects westbound 56 with northbound 5 via a two-lane connector ramp. It adds an auxiliary lane on southbound 5 between Del Mar Heights and Carmel Valley Road and adds two lanes on westbound 56 and one lane on eastbound 56 between Carmel Country and El Camino Real. The hybrid with flyover option connects westbound 56 with northbound 5 with a connector ramp and eastbound Carmel Valley Road to eastbound 56 with an on-ramp connector. It also adds one auxiliary lane on southbound 5 and two lanes on westbound 56 and one on eastbound 56. All of the build alternatives replace and enhance the Del Mar Heights overcrossing and costs range from $90 million for the auxiliary lane beef up to $250 million for the direct connector. “In general, the alternatives provide a 10 to 20 percent reduction in regional traffic trying to go

through the community,” Kosup said. Travel time savings among the alternatives range from five to 20 minutes. As for noise, all of the alternatives provide a reduction in the noise level over today’s condition, Kosup said. “We heard clearly from the public that we need to get out of the box and be creative about reducing our noise levels,” Kosup said. He noted that currently on Lomas Santa Fe and Via de la Valle, Caltrans is testing a new technology to grind lanes differently and reduce traffic noise. “There are some things we can do to try and reduce noise,” Kosup said. “We’re trying to do new things to make it better.” There will be visual impacts as Kosup noted that the direct connector will be about 20 feet higher than the connectors used going to and from south downtown. Kosup said they heard clearly the concerns about right of way impacts, the possible taking of homes, as well as noise and visual impacts. “You can see the concerns reflected in the alternatives,” Kosup said, noting that the hybrid options specifically came out of the community process. Kosup said that the hybrid plans were included and studied is an indication that the community process worked and changed the direction they were heading. The DEIR includes nearly 20 technical reports on key issues of congestion

relief, noise, visual impacts, right of way, environment and cost-effectiveness. “The technical studies look at all the alternatives equally. There is no perfect alternative, some perform better in traffic but have a greater community impact. Some sacrifice a portion of traffic relief but reduce the community impact. It’s a balancing act for us.” Wednesday’s meeting was presented in workshop form, with people able to submit written comments or through a court reporter. Some in attendance expressed their displeasure with the process and the project. “I feel like the lack of planning is deplorable,” said Del Mar resident Mary Farrell. “We should not be presented with this, it should have been done when they built the 56… why wasn’t it done right the first time?” In his comments, Kosup addressed that very question. He said in the 1980s as they first looked at SR-56, land use to the east was very different and there were no homes in the North City Future Urbanizing Area, which includes portions of today’s Carmel Valley and Torrey Hills. “The demand was going to be going more downtown so it didn’t warrant the additional expenditure of funds,” Kosup said. “Fast forward 20 years. We can all argue whether it was the right decision or not but the decision was made. A lot has changed.” Now the question is as they look at the condition of the 5/56, with concerns

the top of the connector is a maximum height of 57 feet and told Ridz they would be correcting it. Ridz said it was “unacceptable” that that and other details were not included. At the Torrey Pines planning board meeting the next night, the board sent a letter asking Caltrans to revise the DEIR and reissue the document with sufficient information to allow meaningful evaluation and analysis by the public and to have a corrected document circulate for a 90-day review period in September 2012. Ray Ellis, a Carmel Valley resident and candidate for San Diego City Council District 1, said that the timing on responding to the DEIR has been difficult for groups like the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board, which has been tied up with the One Paseo development DEIR. “While I know that there are elements that are time sensitive, we need to get a comprehensive solution that addresses all the issues; there’s a lot of moving parts,” Ellis said. “There are so many things going on in this area and how we are going to look for decades.” “This is important to get right,” Ridz echoed. “Why rush it if it’s part of the 2030 plan?” Comment on the DEIR by mail to Shay Lynn Harrison, chief environmental analyst Caltrans District 11, 4050 Taylor Street, San Diego 92110 or via e-mail to I-5_SR_56_Interchange_ View the DEIR at


western Division and since June 13, a total of 21. “We believe these three suspects were involved in all 21,” said Servin. “We got three bad guys off the street and they were documented gang members as well.” Servin said the crime series is a good reminder for people not to leave anything in their vehicles. A lot of the recovered property was gym bags and backpacks, not necessarily high value items but they are inviting items to the criminal element because they never know what is inside of them. “At the end of the night, your car should look like when you picked it up from the dealership, nothing but the floor mats inside,” said Servin.

about local congestion and regional trips, whether the benefits the alternatives would provide are worth the cost and the impact. Bill Farrell said that in his mind the “retrofit” of the freeways, coming as the result of poor planning is not worth the cost. “I can think of a better way to spend those millions of dollars,” Bill Farrell said. Dennis Ridz, chair of the Torrey Pines Community Planning Board, was concerned about the workshop format as well as the DEIR as a whole. “This is a sham,” Ridz said. Ridz said Caltrans has eliminated all the 3-D simulation videos that were on the Keep San Diego Moving site previously that showed what the project alternatives could look like. “All of the maps and drawings are based on I-5 currently, not the buffed out North Coast Corridor that we are going to see,” Ridz said, referencing the I-5 widening. “If you add the connector, we’re looking at between 19 and 21 lanes at the Del Mar Heights bridge and you can’t get that perception here. They’ve been very careful with all the photos they took.” Ridz has many problems with the DEIR, including that the report did not include the heights of the connector. He contacted Caltrans to get the heights and was informed they missed including it. “How could you spend a million dollars and miss that?” Ridz said. The agency told him that from the roadway to

Just as the officers were breaking down the perimeter, the third suspect was located and arrested, Servin said. “During a search of their vehicle, there was evidence of more than nine vehicle burglaries,” Servin said. “Five of the victims have been identified and property has been recovered and returned to them.” None of the property found was from Kellam Court but from other areas of Carmel Valley and the Northeastern Division.

Architect a jack of all artistic trades BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

When John Nalevanko was in his 20s and in love, he used to draw pictures and mail them to his sweetheart. They had met in Hawaii and she had to move to New York to attend college, so he would draw pictures of the Hawaiian flowers she missed so much. He also drew pictures of lips — “smooches” — too. That soon turned into drawing of plants, the flower replaced with a big, red “smooch.” “We called it a ‘smoochplant’ and that’s still what it is today,” said Nalevanko, who expanded the smoochplant into a series of greeting cards, which he tucked away until he was in his mid-30s and living in San Diego. “Then I had a new girlfriend and I showed her my drawings and we thought about marketing them,” said the Carmel Valley resident. Smoochplant is now a very new trademarked company that sells “smoochcards,” decorative gift boxes and stuffed smoochplants — a romantic gift that combines the elements of stuffed animals and live flowers. “It lasts longer than flowers. You can keep it forever,” said Nalevanko, who is working toward the product or entire concept getting picked up by a major retailer. That would be quite an achievement for the artist, especially considering that Smoochplant is only a side gig — Nalevanko is a distinguished architect and designer who has worked out of his Del Mar office for more than 20 years. When you are a self-described “creative machine” like Nalevanko, it’s not out of the ordinary to be a jack of all artistic trades. “Creativity is the basis of my life,” said Nalevanko, who has mastered the art of painting in addition to his

SHERRY STEWART, GRI, e-pro Executive Sales Director


John Nalevanko thriving business, Nollo Furniture Company, and practice as an award-winning architect. He also delves into organic gardening and has a knack for highly artistic landscaping — “artscape,” as he calls it. “I don’t feel as if it’s a good day unless I created something that day, whether it be work on an architectural project, work on a new idea for a product, or paint,” he said. Nalevanko has been featured more than 70 times in newspapers, magazines and books, and his designs were recently accepted by, the acclaimed online catalog company representing juried fine art and crafts from North American artists. He’s even produced two pieces of furniture — the Nollo Chair and the Nollo Swing — that have won American Institute of Architects awards and been called design “classics.” “My main practice is architecture,” said Nalevanko. “Doing furniture helps keep my name out there.” Creating building designs — mainly residential — in parallel with designing furniture sets him apart from others in his field. Further, he said he is the only person he knows of who does just that. “With furniture, I can explore design language and sometimes that language

can find itself into an architecture project,” Nalevanko said, adding that a design “language” is like a particular style. He describes his furniture style as being “pure and honest,” using domestic materials and local woods, not tricky craftsmanship. “It’s sturdily built without a lot of ornamentation,” he said. When it comes to his residential architecture style, he said people who are very familiar with his work might recognize it, but he generally likes to come up with an original idea every time. He also said he likes to concentrate heavily on only a few projects a year so he can focus on quality and good service. “Instead of coming in and saying ‘I’m doing a modern flat roof house,’ I let it develop from the design process,” he said. “All the houses look different because they adapt to the scale of the neighborhood, climate and parameters of the site.” For more information on Nalevanko’s furniture business, visit To see his new Smoochplant product line, visit His architecture company website is and his office is located at 1049 Camino Del Mar, Suite E.

Gaelic football’s popularity continues to grow in area BY JOE TASH Some local children are learning a sport that is relatively unknown in America, but dates back for centuries in Ireland. Gaelic football combines elements of soccer, rugby and even basketball, and its popularity in San Diego is growing. “It’s fast and you need skill to do it,” said Eoin O’Callaghan, 10, whose father, Brian O’Callaghan, of Carmel Valley, is president of the San Diego Youth Gaelic Athletic Association, an umbrella organization for four local Gaelic football clubs. All three of O’Callaghan’s sons — aged 6 to 13 — play the sport. The association was formed in 2007, and there are now clubs in Carmel Valley, La Mesa, University City, and Irvine, said O’Callaghan, a local businessman who was born in Ireland. In all, about 120 boys and girls, ages 5 to 15, play the sport locally, O’Callaghan said. Men’s and women’s teams have also formed. The sport is similar to soccer, but with a key difference — players can catch or pick the ball up with their hands and carry it down the field. A few complications make it trickier than it sounds, though. Players can run

only four steps before they must either bounce the ball, drop it and kick it back up to their hands, or pass it to a teammate by striking it with a blow from their clenched fist. Players score one point by kicking the ball through a set of uprights at either end of the field, or three points by kicking the ball into the goal below the uprights. Gaelic football is not as physical as rugby or American football, but it is a contact sport, and players can bump shoulders with their opponents in an effort to gain control of the ball. Such shoulder-to-shoulder contact is called “jostling.” “You might call it physical assault but we call it jostling,” O’Callaghan joked. The teams practice on week-

days, and come together for a tournament every two weeks. On a recent Sunday afternoon, players ranging from small children to adults battled on playing fields set up at Standley Park in University City. Angus Taggart of Carmel Valley said his two boys, ages 8 and 10, were playing in a local rugby league when the family heard about Gaelic football and decided to try it out. Taggart, who was born in England, said his father, a Scotsman, played rugby when he was in college. Taggart said Gaelic football and rugby provide a link to the family’s heritage, while also serving as a physical outlet for his sons. “There’s coordination between hands and feet. I think it’s got a good range of skills for kids,” Taggart said. His sons have also played baseball, a sport in which players are often inactive, sitting on the bench or out in the field. “With rugby and Gaelic football, it’s non-stop. A lot of running, very fluid,” he said. The local Gaelic football league is open to anyone, O’Callaghan said, although many of the players come from Irish or

San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy summer events introduce all ages to the wonders of wetlands The summer season at San Elijo Lagoon offers more than fanciful butterflies and long, winding trails. Free, public programs will occur in the serene environment of San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve.

Del Mar’s Roy Perkins, Jr. to swim for Gold in London •Sta nford junior to compete for Team USA in Second Paralympic Games Del Mar’s Roy Perkins, Jr. has been nominated to represent the United States in swimming at the 2012 London Paralympics. Perkins won Gold (S5 50-meter butterfly) and Bronze (S5 100-meter freestyle) medals at the Beijing Paralympic Games in 2008. Born without hands or feet, Perkins is a junior at Stanford University, majoring in Earth systems. He is at home training with long-time coach Don Watkinds and the Wave House swim team while he continues final preparations prior to Team USA’s departure on Aug. 15. “I was confident Roy would make the Paralympic Team,” said Watkinds. “Through his hard work and determination, he has made himself one of the top swimmers in the world. He works hard, listens well, and doesn’t let adversity get in his way. He is still improving as attested by his American record and ‘Swimmer of the Meet’ award at the trials. He returned from the trials after midnight, but was at practice preparing for London the same day. He’s determined to succeed.” Perkins first learned to swim when he was 12 years old and broke numerous American records in his first “official” Paralympic meet at age 14. Perkins is now the American record holder for every stroke and distance in the S5 class. He has been a fixture on the U.S. Paralympics National Team for the past eight years. Besides his success at the Beijing Paralympics, Perkins also won Gold and Bronze medals at the IPC World Swimming Championships held in Durban, South Africa in 2006, and four medals (three silver, one bronze) at the most recent World

Don’t Take A Vacation From Investing This Article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor

Summer is here — which means a vacation most likely isn’t far away. Whether you’re hitting the road, jumping on a plane or even enjoying a “staycation” at home, you’re probably looking forward to some down time with your family. But not every aspect of your life should be relaxed. Specifically, you don’t want to take a vacation from investing — which means you need to become a diligent, year-round investor. Here are a few suggestions that can help:

• Keep on investing. Don’t head to the investment “sidelines” when the financial markets experience volatility. You don’t want to be a nonparticipant when things turn around because, historically, the early stage of any market rally is generally when the biggest gains occur. (Keep in mind that past performance of the market is not a guarantee of future results.) • Keep learning. In just about any classroom, the best students are the ones who get the most out of their education and put their learning to the best use. And the same is true of the investment world: The more you know about the forces that affect your investments’ performance, and about why you own the investments you do, the more likely you are to make the right moves — and the less likely you’ll be to make hasty and unwise decisions. • Keep your focus on the long term. As an investor, you need to look past those events — such as natural disasters, recession fears and political instability abroad — that may have noticeable short-term effects on the financial markets but little impact over the longer term. So instead of making investment decisions based on today’s headlines, think about what you want your financial picture to look like in 10, 20 or 30 years — and take the appropriate steps to help make that picture materialize. These steps include following a long-term, disciplined investment strategy that’s suitable for your individual needs, making adjustments as time goes on and working with a professional financial advisor who knows your situation and can help you make the right choices.

The small campus is close to the Torrey Pines High back parking lot exit and Torrington is the inner loop, one street in from Tynebourne Circle. Del

CHAMBER continued from page 4 than the kiosk. The chamber is installing touchscreen visitor guides at a number of locations around the city. One device, which allows visitors to browse the sights of Solana Beach, has already been installed at the chamber office at 210 Plaza Street. Coming within the next week will be installations at two hotels, the Marriott and the Holiday Inn, as well as two time shares, the Sandpebble and the Winner’s Circle. There will also be a device at Dave Stubbs Real Estate at 614 South Sierra. The chamber is also working on a smartphone app, called “Solana Beach,”

Mar Pines’ problems were mainly pedestrian related— parents and students trying to cross the street with too many speeding cars whizzing by.

An Apple version for iPhones is still in test mode, Cohen said. Cohen presented to the Solana Beach City Council on June 13 the chamber’s new direction in serving visitors, and it was well received. The city grants the chamber $15,000 to be used for visitor services, about a fourth of its entire visitor services budget. Councilwoman Lesa Heebner said she agreed that the Visitor Information Center was under used, and she often walks by to find the employee of the kiosk just reading a book. However, she questioned whether a smartphone app is the best use

He also brought up the possibility of leasing out the Visitor Information Center at the train station during the nice months that it will be dormant. The Solana Beach Chamber helped the city develop the informational website last year, and it recently changed the name to www. solanabeachinformation. com to be more specific and make the website more visible.

MESA continued from page 4 Subdivisions scattered over the mesa include Del Mar Mesa Estates, Whitehorse Farms, Silver Oaks, Bougainvillea, a portion of the golf course; a rudimentary trail, and some smaller subdivisions, ending in Duck Pond Ranch in the east. A trail around the outer edge of the maintenance district is included in the MAD, Eardensohn said. Pardee Homes will provide landscaping and irrigation services for its in-progress Shaw Lorenz development.

COMMENT continued from page 3 er said it may be a good idea to start off with a 500,000-square- foot target and then reevaluate the cap after a decade. Deputy Mayor Terry Sinnott said a sequential approach or a staged implementation may be desirable, and that 600,000 square feet seems like an appropriate 30-year target. Nearly all 70 comments from the 45-day pubic comment period were in support of the city’s revitalization efforts, but with some suggesting the development parameters should be scaled back. There were also comments that there should be more incentives and development opportunities for small restaurants and cafes, but with the caveat that adequate parking is critical, according to a city staff report. Other comments related to the building of residential units and the concern that too many (and too big) dwelling units may be difficult to lease or sell. There was also concern expressed regarding noise impacts of public

eas, and fence repair would be at a higher level. Metcalf was quick to note that service fees are preliminary estimates, “not set in stone.” At the low end, the benefit fee could be $360 a year; at the high end, it could be as much as $670 per year. Large lots, such as those with horse corrals, would have a greater benefit fee, but could get a 50 percent fee reduction if they maintain their own facilities. Any increase above a set maximum fee would require a vote of property owners, board member Lisa Ross clarified. The MAD manager could be a city staff member on a contract basis, visiting the mesa several times a week to walk all its trails, with an approximate annual budget of $100,000, or a Del Mar Mesa property owner, including a volunteer. In comparison, “La Jolla Bird Rock’s annual budget is $30,000,” Metcalf said. It could cost $13,000 for a nonprofit such as “Friends several points to be included: locations, zoning, safety implications, qualifications of prescribers, a legal analysis and taxing authority. “This is an area of law that is developing, so I think we need the most comprehensive report possible,” mayor Carl Hilliard said. Parent Barbara Gordon urged the council not to outdoor dining on nearby residents. Several residents also expressed concern that raising the height limit on the west side of Camino Del Mar would result in buildings looming over neighboring residences. When it comes to incentives for parking, the council directed staff to gives little if no incentive for surface parking, as opposed to the preferred structured parking. The council also discussed incentives for publicly accessible plazas and sustainable building design. Councilmembers supported awarding developments that are LEED platinum. The Del Mar Planning Commission is scheduled to make its formal recommendation on the Village Specific Plan at its July 12 meeting. In preliminary comments, the commissioners were split on the proposed additional four-foot height allowance for roof articulation (meant to add character). The City Council will vote on the Village Specific Plan at its Aug. 6 meeting, and the plan will then go to public vote in November.

Some places (like Whitehorse, Bougainvillea, and Duck Pond) are doing a great job of maintenance.” Levitt said subdivisions with their own Homeowners Associations will maintain their own street frontages. “Now I want a park,” Ross said, referring to the desolate patch of weeds at the east end of the mesa, waiting to become a longawaited recreation area. “The community needs (examples) to see what they are getting for their money.” Metcalf has on file a preliminary questionnaire that can be sent out to the community, inviting them to future board meetings. Levitt said board members will meet soon in a smaller group and then schedule another meeting with the city. pass the ordinance, reminding city officials that marijuana is an illegal drug. “More kids are smoking marijuana than they are smoking cigarettes,” she said. “It’s the No. 1 drug kids enter treatment programs for. If it’s sold out of a storefront, it gives the perception that it’s harmless and it’s not.”

LAGOON continued from page 3 Stillinger was also recently honored with an E.A.R.T.H. Award (Environmental Action & Restoration That Helps) through San Diego EarthWorks. Each year the organization recognizes businesses, nonprofits and individuals that deserve special recognition for their work on behalf of a clean, healthy environment. Stillinger has taught biology for 20 years at the San Elijo campus of MiraCosta College. She received her bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of California, San Diego and a master’s in biology from San Diego State University. She’s one of only two original board members remaining, and even though she won’t seek the board presidency again, Gibson said she will remain on the board. He stressed the contribution she has made by having such a well-versed understanding of science. “It really helps in dealing with restoration planning,” he said, adding three key attributes make up a great staff member or executive — time, talent and treasure. “Denise has it in her to share all of those attributes in multiple capacities.” For more information on the conservancy, visit

Update sought on future of polo fields Editor’s Note: The following letter was sent to the City of San Diego and to this newspaper for publication. We have received and read with interest a magazine called “San Diego Polo” which we have never seen before. It served to teach us the history of polo

in San Diego. As [residents of the community] that overlooks the polo fields we are very concerned about the future of the fields and the sport of polo. We are very supportive of the Polo Club and its future. However, we do not agree that other

sporting events should be allowed on these fields. Anyone who reads the text of the deed agreement between the City of San Diego and Watts Industries will see that events other than equestrian-related are not acceptable. The wisdom of this provision is apparent

Don’t give DM council more power Why should we give the five members of the Del Mar City Council more power over our lives? If the proposed Village Specific Plan is voted into effect in November, the result will be just that! And the Council will be able to make any future amendments to the Plan without our being able to vote again, except for increasing the FAR (floor area ratio), the building heights, or adding a new use, neither of which is likely. Recent examples below show that the Council has a proclivity for doing whatever they want, knowing that, in most cases, legal challenges will not be affordable! •Adoption of the Sidewalk Café ordinance, setting forth the usual regs classified as Zoning Regs by State Law, as a subdivision of the Building Construction Title

rather than the Zoning Title. This eliminated the State Law requirement for public hearing before, and recommendation of the Planning Commission prior to council adoption. Less public input! • The recent approval of “Valet Parking Plans” for the addition of two new restaurant/bars, in spite of such plans not being provided for in the adopted Municipal Code. Developers under the existing codes have more choices in what their development will be and look like than under the inflexible Specific Plan. All it takes for action is to increase the FAR to a reasonable amount! Ralph Peck Del Mar

Del Mar housing demand determines property values The cadre of development foes erroneously credit landuse restrictions for Del Mar’s increased property values by confusing correlation with causality. No causal relation exists between Del Mar’s increased property values and Del Mar’s severe land-use restrictions. Any correlation explains nothing. Land-use restrictions usually raise property values by prohibiting development on undeveloped land or by instituting minimum parcel sizes. Both restrictions raise property values by reducing housing supply. Neither restriction applies in Del Mar since minimum parcel size already constrains subdivision and since undeveloped land terrain inhibits development. With essentially fixed housing supply, Del Mar housing demand determines property values. Del Mar’s land-use restrictions only reduce demand by creating long approval times, multiple architectural revisions, prolonged carrying costs, exceptional public benefits, and neighborhood intrusions. Facing potentially evanescent demand for beach property, current restrictions restrain increased property values. Relaxing those restrictions increases demand and property values. Perennial cadre objectives of restricted lot mergers and historic preservation promise adverse or asymmetrical property value effects. Restricting lot mergers diminishes housing-supply reductions and property value increases. Preserving putatively historic properties reduces preserved property values and initially increases unpreserved property values. These unpreserved properties eventually sustain diminished or negative value gains as preserved properties inhibit renovation, blight neighborhoods, and reduce demand. John Haraden Del Mar

Here he goes again Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) introduced an amendment on 6/6/12 to HR 5325 cutting spending in the Energy & Water Appropriations bill by a whopping .2726 percent. That would equal 27.3 cents of every $100. Reps. Hunter, Issa, McClintock and the 11 other California Congressmen (along with 126 other GOP Congress members) voted “Yes” to cut that paltry amount. Our thanks to them for their political courage. Cong. Bilbray voted “No,” along with 179 Democrats including Susan Davis (Filner wasn’t there), Nancy

Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DNC Chair). Speaking with Andrew Lund in Bilbray’s office about the Flake amendment, he says that his boss is never for “across the board cuts” since doing so might cut something we could regret. What? We remember Bilbray campaigning on “cutting spending” and denying Pelosi the Minority leadership. The same ol’ Brian.

Solana Beach Library’s Customer Appreciation Open House to feature music, Director of SD County Library The Solana Beach Library (157 Stevens Ave., Solana Beach) is hosting a Customer Appreciation Open House that includes activities for all ages. The event includes an opportunity to meet José Aponte, director of the San Diego County Library, which was recently named the winner of the national 2012 Library of the Year award. The event is taking place on Thursday, June 28, from 2-4 p.m. and will include music, refreshments, and an art display. “The Customer Appreciation Open House is San Diego County Library’s way of saying ‘thank you’ to the people that give us our purpose,” said Aponte. “The public is the driving force behind everything we do, and one of the best parts of my job is getting out and thanking the community for making our libraries great.” The Customer Appreciation Open House will feature harp music by local harpist Mair Rathburn. There will also be an art display featuring work created by the students of Joel Harris, 2012 Volunteer of the Year for the San Diego County Library. Refreshments and music are sponsored by the Friends of the Solana Beach Library.

MEASURE continued from page 1 one for voters to participate in. A high turnout is expected: Of the 22,535 voters in the district, it is likely that 19,997 will participate in the election, according to McLarney. In order for the bond to pass it needs 55 percent of the vote, or 10,999 “Yes” votes. The survey presented voters with a measure that issued $95 million in bonds in order to improve instructional technology and computer systems in classrooms, libraries and school facilities; repair and maintain aging classrooms and buildings; improve student safety; and make funding available to protect and enhance the quality of core academic instruction. In the initial ballot test, 64 percent said they would vote “Yes” on the measure. At the completion of the survey, with more informa-

We had all of 10 days to address 110 significant changes … Many of us were unaware of the overhaul and assumed it was our plan that was approved.” Residents are saying new seawall restrictions in the Local Coastal Program Land Use Plan (LUP) will harm property value. Solana Beach has a large stretch

of bluff with numerous homes on Pacific Avenue perched atop that bluff. Many have seawalls, which stabilize homes by stopping natural erosion. Residents are saying the state views blufftop homes as expendable because it modified the LUP to not insure renewal of seawall permits. Local realtor Doug Harwood said in his job he faces the challenge of provid-

ing disclosures to both buyers and sellers of blufftop homes that seawall permits will not last longer than 20 years, if at all. “What bank is going to issue a home mortgage for 30 years when, at most, a seawall is going to be in place for as few 18 years?” he said, adding that the LUP also tightens restrictions on remodeling. Resident Chris Hamilton said the LUP is a “huge

hit on the tax base.” “This plan as it’s written is disastrous,” he said. Hamilton said the beaches before seawalls were not very safe, and without the walls, homes may be lost and the city would then be responsible for the infrastructure. “Erosion continues to occur on the bluff,” he said. “I’m aware of some caves that have already approached the street because

they are so deep.” These concerned residents came forward during the oral communications portion of the June 13 Solana Beach City Council meeting. The LUP must still go to the Solana Beach City Council for final approval, and then the city will develop a Local Implementation Policy, which city manager David Ott said could take 12 to 18 months.

tion given, 63 percent said that they would vote “Yes.” Among the 29 percent that voted “No,” 18 percent said they needed more information and another 18 percent said that the measure was unnecessary, that the schools are OK. McLarney said those were good answers because they did not reflect that people were opposed to the bond on principle and none of the other answers were red flags about the district. The survey tested the tax threshold that people would be willing to support. Sixty-one percent would support $12 per $100,000 of assessed property value; 64 percent would support a bond at $8 per $100,000 of assessed property value; and 69 percent would support $5 per $100,000 of assessed property value. “The good news is that every one of those tax rates were above the needed 55 percent threshold,” McLar-

ney said. It is possible there will be two GO bonds on the November ballot as Del Mar is considering one at $12 per $100,000 and the San Dieguito Union High School District is considering one between $20 and $25 per $100,000. The Del Mar school board did voice some concerns about voters supporting two bond measures on the same ballot, but district superintendent Jim Peabody said that if the districts go about it in a cooperative way, they may both be successful. “We don’t want to punish the taxpayers, we want what’s best for the children,” Peabody said, noting that the bonds could strengthen both districts. “We’re in this together.” Charles Heath of TBWB Strategies agreed that there are ways to manage two educational bonds on the ballot. “There are strategies to limit the impact of compe-

tition between measures,” Heath said. “Voters can see it as a package, working together to provide quality education in the community from kindergarten through high school.” The survey tested programs and projects that voters would favor the bond supporting and the top ranking was making funds available to retain and attract quality teachers, repair projects and improving instructional technology. Voters were least likely to support bond monies being used to improve parking lots. “Those three things— modernizing, technology and general fund relief— that combination is quite compelling,” said McLarney. “There are very few things on the list that we can put in the package that would generate a lot of push back.” The district shined in the survey when respondents were asked how they

view the quality of education that the district provides. McLarney said it’s a key issue as the better the district is doing, the more likely voters will support the district. Fifty-four percent of those surveyed said the district’s quality was excellent, with 27 percent ranking it as good. “These are among the best results I’ve ever seen for a question like this,” McLarney said. Another area the survey measured was the importance of issues. Maintaining quality of education in local schools topped the list with 49 percent finding it extremely important and 41 percent finding it very important. “That’s an ideal scenario for having a successful tax measure,” McLarney said, noting the district’s main task would be packaging the measure in a way voters would like to see it. The survey also asked

voters about their support of a parcel tax of $250 that will last five years to help the district attract and maintain quality teachers, maintain class sizes and provide advanced programming. Only 47 percent of voters said that they would support such a parcel tax. However, when told — hypothetically — that the state would reduce funding to the district by $250 per student annually, 57 percent said they would be in favor of the parcel tax. That boost in support was seen as promising by the consultants if the district finds itself in that position. “There’s a strong probability you could put together a [parcel tax] campaign even if the GO bond measure is approved,” Benjamin Dolinka of the Dolinka Group said. The parcel tax could be on any special election ballot whereas June 2014 would be the next opportunity for the GO bond.

Manchester BU10 team wins again The Manchester Boys U10 soccer team continued their winning start to the season, winning their second tournament in two weeks as they claimed the Manchester Cup beating Oceanside Breakers 6-1 in the final game. Coached by Billy Garton, he had this to say about their success. “This has been a great start to the season for the boys, winning back-to-back tournaments has given them great confidence and this is reflected in their play. They have shown great belief and determination recently and have been able to overcome some adversity to still win games. They are also playing a nice brand of soccer, learning to play a controlled passing style — I am very proud of them” The boys now go on to play in the Pegasus Cup.

The Green Team was undefeated during both the regular season and the play-offs, dominating the other schools by shutting out every single opponent faced. Goaltender Katie Lynn and her iron-curtain defense (Grace Carter, Katie Gitre) did not allow one goal all season. This incredible accomplishment was aided by a very talented and fast offensive attack led by Lori Purcell, Mikayla Kappes, AC Kaseberg and Devon Doheny.

Local resident receives prestigious award for early-career scientists Carmel Valley resident Shane Crotty, Ph.D., a scientist at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology, has been selected for the prestigious Biosciences Investigator Award in recognition of his groundbreaking work in vaccine research. The award is presented annually by the American Association of Immunologists (AAI) and recognizes early-career investigators for outstanding research contributions to the field of immunology. “The recipients of this award are considered to be rising stars with great momentum who have already shown exceptional talent and creativity, have been well and widely published, and are sought-after speakers,” said Mary T. Litzinger, Ph.D., an AAI spokeswoman. Crotty was formally Dr. Shane Crotty presented with the award at the AAI conference, attended by over 3,000 scientists, and held from May 4-8 in Boston. “I am honored to receive this award,” he said. “Many of the previous recipients have become true leaders of immunology and I am humbled to be considered in their company.” Mitchell Kronenberg, Ph.D., La Jolla Institute president and chief scientific officer, said Dr. Crotty’s selection comes as no surprise. “While still relatively early in his career, Dr. Crotty is a researcher of the highest caliber, whose breakthrough discoveries have significantly advanced scientific understanding of vaccine mechanisms,” he said. “I anticipate we will be hearing much more in this area from Dr. Crotty in the coming years and that his work will be central to worldwide efforts to create vaccines against many dangerous pathogens.” As part of his selection, Crotty received a cash prize and was asked to present a full-length lecture, a privilege awarded to only a few speakers at the annual meeting. Crotty spoke on his vaccine research, which in 2009 resulted in his seminal discovery of a molecular trigger for generating potent antibodies — the body’s disease-fighting warriors and the basis for most vaccines. “This was a landmark study that has implications for optimizing vaccine development,” said Rafi Ahmed, Ph.D., a nationally prominent vaccine researcher and director of the Emory University School of Medicine’s Vaccine Center. “By identifying this molecular “master regulator” leading to effective long-term antibody responses, Dr. Crotty’s discovery opens the door to developing ways to

BY KATHY DAY As the Del Mar racetrack gears up for its 75th season opening on July 18, all sorts of special activities are being planned. But there’s one that will last beyond closing day — a carefully crafted book of memories that captures the essence of a day in the life of the legendary track. “Del Mar at 75: Where the Turf Meets the Surf” was the brainchild of photographer Barry Myers of Bethesda, Md., who admits to attending a horse race only once before he started on the project. When he shared the idea with his cousin Jay Privman of Encinitas — the national correspondent for the Daily Racing Form who is decidedly better informed on thoroughbred racing – the plan started to gel. Privman knows the staff at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club well from covering the season there for years. As an 11-year-old on a family vacation, it’s also the first place he ever saw a horse race.

Lobster tales and other fish stories for National Seafood Month The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN For devoted pescavores, here’s a primer on getting the best and most out of this delightful treasure of the sea. Bottom-feeders Can you believe, lobster was once a poor man’s food and even used as bait for fish when it was good and plenty in the frontier days of Davy Crockett? A cousin of mine grew up in a small maritime fishing town in Nova Scotia that boasts the world’s largest lobster on record — a heavyweight toppling the scales at 44 pounds. Since it takes 5-7 years for a lobster to reach one pound (typical market size) you do the math on this Methuselah of crustaceans.

There are boy and girl lobsters. In lobstermen vernacular, the male is called a “cock,” the female a “hen,” the latter distinguished by a wider dorsal tail region to accommodate premature eggs or roe that give bisque an intense lobster flavor. So if you enjoy a meatier tail, go for the girl. Death by boiling Lobsters are not the sharpest creatures in the sea; their miniscule brains resemble a grasshopper’s tangled mass of ganglia, supporting lobstermen’s claims that the creatures experience little pain when boiled alive. To appease lobster-advocates, the recommended method is to immerse the crustaceans into ice water to anesthetize them prior to boiling. To prepare a sweet and tender lobster, bring water to a rolling boil. Add the lobster (numbed in ice water, if you wish). Cover and bring to another boil. Simmer, letting it poach for about 5 minutes for a oneand-a-quarter-pounder, 2 minutes for each additional pound. Lobster must be cooked like Baby Bear’s porridge – just right. Don’t overcook unless you want a

mushy and perhaps unsafe meal.

How the locals do lobster • George’s California Modern at The Cove: Savory and smoked flavored Maine lobster. • La Jolla’s La Valencia Hotel and Herringbone’s: Both serve a mean lobster roll. • Beaumont’s in Bird Rock: Lobster Pappardelle dressed with house-dried tomato and shichimi spice. • Del Mar’s Burlap: Lobster, Avocado and Gruyere Scramble with Asian hollandaise sauce. • Donovan’s: A rare catch of deep-sea Australian Rock Lobster tail or Lobster Fricassée • San Diego’s Saltbox: Lobster corn dogs with ginger remoulade. jaw workout, and don’t undercook unless you want a

Lobster fights What lobsters lack in brains they gain in brawn. Fierce bullies and cannibals, they cannot be farm-raised through aquaculture (like salmon and oysters) since they grow at a glacial pace and it would be difficult to referee and protect the “pod” during such a long stretch of captivity. They beat up each other, the winner being treated to a nice lobster dinner. Packed with protein You’ll get cracking with a succulent low-fat, low-carb, protein-packed steamed lobster. Like other shellfish, lobsters contain a motherloade of vitamin B-12 to boost brain health, B-3 to dial-up digestion and mellow out nerves, zinc to amp up the immune system and heal wounds, and selenium for an optimum thyroid. Pick a winner When buying lobster ask your reputable fishmonger to look for a succulent newcomer to the tank with a feisty, energetic spirit. Bigger is not always better in the lobster world as the

Herringbone’s Lobster Roll Thanks to Chef Amanda Baumgarten, when you make this at home you won’t have to fish for compliments! Ingredients • 5 ounces Maine lobster meat (claw and tail), chopped • Lemon Mayo: 4 ounces mayo, plus zest and juice from 2 lemons (Meyers or Eurekas) smaller ones usually have more tender flesh. While lobsters come in designer shades from black and blue to yellow and white, the hue is irrelevant to flavor or texture. The tools of the trade

• 1 tablespoon chopped cornichons (sour gherkin) • 1 tablespoon chopped capers • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley Method: Mix 3 tablespoons of lemon mayo with the chopped lobster meat, and serve on a toasted bun of your choice — brioche is recommended. for eating a whole lobster are patient, adept hands, a good cracker, a lobster fork to dig out choice morsels, and a bib.

Del Mar woman starts unique yoga festival in Telluride • North County festival on Bindu instructor’s radar BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

La Jolla Cultural Partners

A yoga instructor of nearly a decade, Del Mar resident Aubrey Hackman used to attend a huge yoga conference in Colorado each year. One year, the conference was sponsored by Fiji water, she said, and by the end of the well-attended event, the grounds were covered with empty plastic water bottles. “I thought, ‘This isn’t right,’” said Hackman, 29. “This is a yoga event and it should promote mindfulness. People should be aware of the consequences their actions create. That’s what’s taught in the philosophy of yoga.” Then a resident of Telluride, Colo., Hackman decided to create her own yoga event that would be environmentally conscious and not produce waste — one that would “allow attendees to accrue good karma,” she said. With that intention, the very first yoga festival was born, and it has been going strong for five years. The Telluride Yoga Festival began with about 300 attendees in 2008 and has grown to more than 800. Not only was Hackman able to secure grant funding from the town of Telluride, but dozens of highly coveted yoga instructors from around the world have committed to being a part of the festival because they are in tune with her no-waste philosophy. “I got huge names I never expected to get because they also wanted to be part of something that was environmentally focused,” said Hackman. “As soon as they caught wind of this event that was going to be totally different they jumped on board.” Sponsors of the event are only allowed to provide product samples that are consumable and recyclable, and Hackman has turned away a number of companies that have offered ample sponsorship funding, but could not supply plas-

tic-free promotional products. A portion of proceeds from the festival is also dispersed among several environmental nonprofits. “All the paper we use is ancient forestfriendly, too. We’ve been doing that from day one,” said Hackman. “The commercialization of yoga is huge right now, a $30 billion industry. It’s enormous. I just want to focus on tradiAubrey Hackman tion and the older integrity of the practice.” Hackman said the success of the festival inspired her to move to North County, where yoga is heavily embraced by the community. She said she would like to start a yoga festival here, and there have been many local people who have come forth to help her. “It’s still up in the air,” she said. “I have what’s necessary; I’m just waiting for the right time.” Hackman teaches yoga full-time at Bindu Yoga, located

at 1130 Camino del Mar, and also at Hale Holistic in downtown San Diego (1250 J St.). She continues to orchestrate the Telluride Yoga Festival from her home in Del Mar, and the fast-approaching 2012 fest is scheduled for July 12-15. Despite the growing popularity of the festival, Hackman said she wants to keep it small and intimate. “Its size is what makes it unique,” she said. “Considering the caliber of teachers I bring in, at their home studios you may see 60 people in their class, so it’s really special to come to the festival and be able to take these senior teachers’ classes with 20 people or less.” In addition to having a vast array of class options, the festival offers a vibrant selection of vendors, an evening kirtan musical performance by Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band, and a workshop on slack-lining (similar to tightrope walking). The kirtan music style is a call-and-response, meditative Indian tradition that incorporates mainly percussion instruments. Local harpist Kelsey Little will also perform at the festival. In planning for the festival, Hackman travels the world to find distinguished and like-minded teachers and performers to invite. For example, a brother-sister team Hackman met in India last fall will be featured at the festival this year. Keeping a strict focus on the caliber of teachers is how Hackman has both built and maintained respect in the yoga community. “We have an intense focus on the teachers,” said Hackman, adding that about 30 percent of attendees are instructors themselves. “That’s really what sets us apart from other yoga events.” For more information on the Telluride Yoga Festival, visit For information on Bindu Yoga, visit

According to the Off-Broadway website, “Rent tells the unforgettable story of a group of young artists learning to survive, falling in love, finding their voices and living for today while exploring topics relevant to communities today.” Director Ron Kellum said, “This amazing cast will touch and inspire you! A great opportunity to experience ‘Rent’ with this talented ensemble.” Single tickets for SDMT’s production of RENT are $26, $32, $42 and $52. Children 12 and under are half price.

DM resident to appear in ‘Leaving Iowa,’ a comedy about family and vacations PowPac, Poway’s Community Theatre will present Leaving Iowa, written by Tim Clue and Spike Manton, opening on Friday, June 22, and running through Sunday, July 22. Told in flashback, Leaving Iowa is a hilarious sentimental comedy about a journalist who returns to the family homestead in Winterset, Iowa, to find a final resting place for his father’s ashes, only to discover that the property is now a grocery store. Not wanting to tell his mother and sister that he has failed in his mission, he sets out on a road trip to find the proper alternative resting place for his father’s ashes, all the while reliving the summer vacations he spent as a boy, trapped in the family station wagon en route to uninteresting historical sites with a well-meaning but naïve father. With a generous dollop of humor and a heart as big as the Midwest, Leaving Iowa shows us that the journey really is as important as the destination. This show is guaranteed to keep you laughing and will make you remember the childhood vacations “Leaving Iowa” opens on Friday, June 22, and runs through Sunday, you vowed to forget.* The cast includes Nathan Boyer as Don, Chris- July 22. tine Gatlin as Sis, Cheryl Warner as Mom, Sam Warner as Dad, with Del Mar’s Bud Emerson, Evan Jones and Pati Reynolds playing multiple memorable characters that the family encountered on various road trips. Leaving Iowa is directed by Keith Anderson and produced by Mary Anderson and Dorothy Courtney. Seats are $18 general admission and $15 for seniors and students. Tickets may be purchased by calling the box office at 858-679-8085 or e-mailing Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. For more information, visit www.

The man of 200 (or more) voices heads to Garfield Theatre BY DAVID L. CODDON Expect Rich Little to be paying close attention to the presidential debates this fall. Not because he’s trying to decide whom to vote for in November. The truth is, he wants to get his “Mitt Romney” down. “It’s not going to be easy, because he looks like the typical all-American guy,” said Little of the GOP candidate. “He looks like ‘Leave it to Beaver’s’ father. I’m hoping that the debates will change things. Maybe he’ll get angry or we’ll hear something different, because he isn’t terribly exciting.” Little, the most famous impressionist in show-biz history, isn’t excited about Democratic incumbent Barack Obama’s voice either. “I think Ron Paul would have been better for me,” he confided, then immediately impersonated the What: Rich Little ‘in concert’ Texas politician. “He’s a whinWhen: 8 p.m. Saturday, June 30 er,” Little whined, spot on.

would be one of the best to do because he worked with so many people that I do.” That list includes presidents Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon, Cary Grant, John Wayne and Henry Fonda. Little has also worked a few more contemporary voices into the show: Dr. Phil, Andy Rooney, Clint Eastwood and Jack Nicholson. He does 28 impressions during each performance of the play. Little acknowledges that most of his impressions are of celebrities from an era foreign to younger audiences. “You don’t see many people doing Don Rickles and Robert Stack and Walter Matthau,” he said. “If you’re going to be an impersonator today, are you going to do your act and do Brad Pitt and George Clooney and Matt Damon? Is that going to work? Even if you did them well? I don’t know.” But Little says young people enjoy his shows. “I find that the young people who do come and are laughing and enjoying the show always say to me ‘I have no idea who you are impersonating, but I like the jokes.”

Among his favorite voices, besides Stewart, are Ronald Reagan, and the man who was known as the “King of Late Night.” “It’s amazing how many people still remember ‘Carnac the Magnificent.’ I even say to the audience, do you miss Johnny Carson, and they all yell out yes.” Voice impressionists are a rare breed these days, but Little, 73, has some advice for aspiring impersonators: Choose people you admire and watch them all the time. “You get to know their mannerisms, their quirks. It helps if you’re a fan. You tend to gravitate to people you like. When I was a kid, I did John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart, Jack Benny and George Burns.” Then, when asked if he ever thinks about retiring from show business, Rich Little morphed into George Burns: “You’ve got to have a reason to get out of bed in the morning, or you’ve got to have a reason to get into bed. At my age, they’re one and the same.” Good night, Gracie.

boost antibody production, thereby creating stronger and more effective vaccines.” Kronenberg said the finding was “enormous in terms of its long-term benefit to science and society as a whole” and answered a critical question that had long been sought by the scientific community. “Dr. Crotty’s results reveal the mechanisms that allow us to make antibodies against a disease-causing organism years after a successful vaccination, a phenomenon known as immune memory. Understanding how this works could help in the development of vaccines against many agents, such as the ones that cause AIDS or tuberculosis, which still lack effective vaccines despite much effort.” The discovery was front page news in San Diego and also drew national interest, landing Dr. Crotty as a guest on National Public Radio. It wasn’t the first time Crotty’s achievements have earned national notice. In 2005 he was named one of America’s “Most Promising Biomedical Researchers” by the Pew Charitable Trusts, which describes recipients as those expected to advance the scientific frontier. In addition, his discovery of a potential antibody treatment for smallpox drew the atten-


tion of the National Institutes of Health, which in 2008 awarded him a $7.1 million grant to continue his efforts. The treatment could be the nation’s first line of defense in protecting against a terroristoriginated smallpox outbreak and may eventually be stockpiled nationwide alongside the smallpox vaccine. Crotty joined the La Jolla Institute in 2003 and is an Associate Professor in the Vaccine Discovery Division. He received undergraduate degrees in biology and writing from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1996 and earned his Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from UC San Francisco. Dr. Crotty pursued postdoctoral work at Emory University from 2001 to 2003, before joining the La Jolla Institute. He is the recipient of a Cancer Research Institute Young Investigator award and, in 2010, was appointed as a permanent member of the NIH study section on Immunity and Host Defense. Dr. Crotty is the author of Ahead of the Curve, a biography of Nobel laureate scientist David Baltimore which received positive reviews in The Wall Street Journal, Nature, The Washington Post and other publications.

CV Middle School’s ‘Bob & the Cats’ BY SUSAN FARESE What an honor! For the second time this academic year, I was invited by the Carmel Valley Middle School Principal Laurie Brady Francis and Vice-Principal Adam Camacho to photograph and report on the “one and only” CVMS Faculty-Student Rock Band “Bob & the Cats” spring encore outdoor lunchtime concert on Tuesday, June 5. Eric Cahill of The Gig Entertainment, provided audio and sound (courtesy of CVMS ASB). Social Studies teacher and “wordsmith” Gino Scalo was an amazing Master of Ceremonies. The cheering 1,400-plus enthralled students enjoyed a beautiful sunny San Diego lunchtime respite complete with perfect blue skies…while free-flowing rock music entertained them. Mr. Scalo cleverly used rhymes and puns to introduce songs and performers. Song after song encouraged me, a bonafide Baby Boomer, to reminisce. Not to mention that happy, youthful middle school audience blurting out “wooHannah Green Javan Tahir woo,” snapping some photos and taking in the memorable event. Yes, I must admit, “Bob & the Cats” invited even my inner voice to sing along with the rockers, and I make no apologies! Just who are “Bob & the Cats”? Here’s the lowdown: CVMS Vice Principal Adam Camacho played drums, Scott Dreschsel (CVMS band/orchestra) shined on sax. Vocals were belted out by teachers Holly Clark and Kathryn Stevens (English), Andy Corman (Science), and Brett Williams (Social Studies). The talented student performers included Hannah Green (8th grade) on vocals, Javan Tahir (8th grade) and Andy Brems (7th Isa Guilfoyle, Emmy Farese, Laugrade) on rhythm/lead guitars and Eshaan Pathak (8th ren Samuel grade) on bass.

Carmel Valley News, Del Mar Times & Solana Beach Sun

CAUGHT ON CAMERA Community Contest


DEL MAR continued from page B1 Four years ago, Privman approached his friend Craig Dado, the club’s senior vice president for marketing, about the idea of “capturing the ebbs and flows to the season.” Then, to paraphrase Trevor Denman, away they went. “The Del Mar experience is so visual,” Dado said. “We’ve always wanted to do a coffee table book so when Jay, who’s an award-winning writer, talked to me and (DMTC President) Joe Harper about it, we decided we had the right team.” Myers, a retired commercial photographer who had little experience shooting sports but lots doing portraits, said he wanted to show more than just the racing. He wanted more about who the people are and what their daily routines were. To accomplish his goal he spent 60 days over the past four racing seasons, from sunup to sundown and beyond looking for the photos that told the story. Myers said he wanted to be there for at least part of every day of the season, including the week before and a couple of days after closing day. In the acknowledgments he wrote: “From the beginning, I saw this project as a documentary, an aggregate day in the life of a great race track, where 3,800 workers, 2,100 horses, and more than 650,000 fans come together during a season …” Privman’s words help tell the story. “Del Mar has such great allure, from its founding to the great atmosphere next to the ocean and the fun things after the races,” he said. “I didn’t want the project to be just a history book.” While there is a chapter on the storied history that

serves as an introduction and a chapter on “Zenyatta: Del Mar’s Best Ever,” the emotional ride of the book is from early morning to evening as the jockeys and staff do their part and the crowds react and enjoy all the sideline activities. The book includes many of the landmark Del Mar shots – ladies in their hats on opening day, people poring over racing forms, lines at the betting windows, the Party in the Paddock. To do the project right required access to places that few journalists get to see, either on a regular basis or just for a snapshot. For Myers, the time he spent taking pictures in the jockeys’ room was special. “Most of the press doesn’t go in,” he said. “It’s not like TV coverage during races like the Preakness when the lights are on.” There are also shots taken in the money room where employees deal with stacks — and stacks and stacks — of cash and security guards are on alert. Privman said he doesn’t know of any other journalists who have been in that room, much less been allowed to photograph it. “It’s a testament to how Del Mar race track and Thoroughbred Club officials trusted Barry to do a good job and tell the story,” he said. Author and photographer alike singled out Dado and Harper along with DMTC Executive Vice President Mike Ernst and media director Mac MacBride for their assistance, but also wanted to thank everyone else associated for being so helpful. Dado said the unfettered access was essential to telling “the real experience of all of Del Mar.” “We let everyone know Barry would be in places photographers would never be,” he said, adding that he really likes how the book

turned out. “Four of the photos are now hanging on my office wall.” One of those shots is of horses breaking from the gate. For Myers, the racing shots were “challenging at first,” he said. “I hadn’t shot powerful animals coming down the track at great speed.” But he learned, he added, with the help of other photographers and his own technical knowledge from years as a commercial photographer. At the end of each season, he would edit the collection and cull about a third of the shots right away, he said “From there, I selected about one in every 12 to 15 as the best ones.” After last season, they had about 25,000 images – with only about 350 making it into print. He’d send disks to his cousin, who had ideas of what Myers wanted to shoot. Towards the end, Myers said, Jay suggested that he was missing some pieces or should devote more time to some areas. Both have favorite shots in the book, although Privman had to think a bit before answering. “The one on the back cover – the view of the paddock, is unmistakably Del Mar,” he said. He’s also partial to an archival shot of a shirtless, barefoot Charlie Wittingham — the renowned trainer — exercising one of his horses on the beach and one of Zenyatta walking in the morning fog. Myers’ favorites include early morning scenes on the track, those with the trainers, and the moments in the jockeys’ room. Some of the shots do a particularly good job of conveying the span from what Myers described as the “great elation” of a victory for jockeys, owners and bettors to the sadness at the end as the season winds down and the crews begin packing up. Each season when he returned to Del Mar, he would bring back some prints, particularly those he had taken with Del Mar’s people and their family members in the shots. So he it was a proud moment when he spotted a photo of Martin Pedroza and son in the jockey’s locker area. Were there any surprises for this formerly novice racing photographer? “How much people work and love the horses,” he said.
