Polo property lease situation still in limbo City says request for bids likely to be issued ‘this summer’

■ Woman sees life through lens of Navy Combat Camera division. Page 14

BY KATHY DAY While city officials still haven’t decided when to request bids for a new lease on the 80 acres that’s home to the San Diego Polo Club, life goes on for the club and the organizers of the Surf Cup soccer tour-

nament. The land, which the city acquired as part of the development of Fairbanks Ranch, has been used by the polo club since 1986 for its matches and offices. City officials decided late last year to request new proposals for the lease, even though club officials proposed their own rent increase in exchange for a new lease. Noting that the club has not seen anything from the city, club

president Ron Bonaguidi said, “For now, it’s business as usual. … We pay rent and keep moving forward.” The club pays $9,842 a month to the city and subleases the property to raise money to help support and maintain the property. One of the groups with a sublease is the Surf Cup soccer tournament, which is gearing up for the 2012 competition that will draw about 7,500 participants. The club also subleases the site

for lacrosse tournaments and corporate and charitable events. Last week Alex Roth, spokesman for Mayor Jerry Sanders, said it will likely be “this summer” when the request for proposals is issued. “We’re not saying anything definitive at this point,” he added. When asked about the situation in March after the polo club’s lease expired, Roth said the city would

Caltrans I-5/56 report lacks needed information, Torrey Hills board says BY KAREN BILLING The Torrey Hills Community Planning Board voted to send a letter to Caltrans asking them to reissue its draft environmental impact report (DEIR) on the Interstate 5/SR-56 interchange project due to a lack of information. The group voted unanimously at its meeting on June 26, taking the same action the neighboring Torrey Pines Community Planning Board did earlier in the month. Torrey Hills Chair Kathryn Burton said after looking through the thousands of pages in the report, she found it difficult to find specific information. “It didn’t include any information about the height impacts of this $260 million flyover ramp,” Burton said. “Why are there no maps or drawings that re-

flect the project? In this massive document, they really neglected the elephant in the room.” Patti Ashton, speaking on behalf of Torrey Pines Planning Board Chair Dennis Ridz, said their board came to the same conclusions, that the report appeared to be deceptive with the amount of information not included. The board decided not to deal with its preferences or concerns with the build alternatives in the DEIR (the direct connector, auxiliary lane improvements, hybrid and hybrid with flyover) and instead pointed out inconsistencies in the report. The board encouraged Caltrans to get the document right so that the community can have mean-

Community discussion held on potential water rate increase ■ For photos of Del Mar’s Summer Twilight Concert series and Summer Solstice, see pages B10 and B14.

BY KAREN BILLING Stephenie Caughlin has owned her two-and-a-halfacre farm high on a hill off Arroyo Sorrento Road in Carmel Valley since 1978. For the last 24 years she has operated Seabreeze Organic Farms on that pristine land, offering farm-to-home delivery of vegetables, herbs, flowers, fruit and poultry.

About 15 years ago, her water bill was $200 a month. Despite making a 20 percent decrease in water use as urged by the city San Diego, she is now seeing a monthly water bill of $2,500. “It just cripples our business,” Caughlin said. “We can’t charge $12 for a head of lettuce.”

Caughlin held a discussion at her farm on June 23 to get a dialogue going with her neighbors and customers about the upcoming San Diego County Water Authority vote on June 28 to raise untreated water rates by 9.7 percent over the 2012 rate. She invited District 1 City Council member Sherri Lightner and Teresa

Penunuri from the San Diego County Water Authority to offer some insight. “We’ve gone through a couple of pretty bad draughts and we San Diegans have been asked to cut back on water,” Caughlin said. “We’ve done our job and cut back.” Lightner agreed. “The city of San Diego

came through on conservation. Single family homeowners did a phenomenal job,” Lightner said of achieving a 35 percent reduction in water usage. “That buys time…but we need to take control. It does affect quality of life and whatever economic development we have in the future.

TPHS student receives national honor

BY KAREN BILLING Local resident Nancie Hochberg is re-launching her nonprofit Deeds From the Heart, an organization that seeks to build values and self-esteem in kids and teens ages 4 through 18. The group is re-launching with revamped social action activities, as well as a new teen program called Straight Talk 4 Teens. The programs, which run September through May, are now enrolling. “A lot of youth organizations say they develop leaders but you can’t develop a leader until kids have values,” Hochberg said. “Values come from the heart and that’s what I’m trying to do in fueling the hearts and souls of kids and teens.” Hochberg first started Deeds From the Heart in 2000. “I started it because I’m a true believer in tolerance, empathy and understanding in kids,” Hochberg said. “When I moved here (from Pennsylvania) I saw a lack of ethnic and economic diversity and I was concerned about bringing them up here.” The group grew to 100 kids helping out 72 different organizations in the county with monthly events. With Deeds From the Heart’s social action element, children are participating in hands-on, experiential activities where they learn about the disadvantages of others and perform an act of service or a deed. These social action activities are open to children as young as 4 and parents also attend the events.

Torrey Pines High School student Anita Chen has been named one of only 43 Emerson Scholars and will receive a full scholarship to attend Interlochen Arts Camp, the world’s “premier summer arts program” for aspiring young musicians. Emerson scholars are selected from among the top applicants to the competitive summer arts program. Chen, 17, will attend Interlochen Arts Camp this summer to study the violin and perform with Anita Chen distinguished youth ensembles. She is the daughter of Li-Han Chen and Shu-Hui Chang. She takes private violin lessons with Michael, Irina and Pasha Tseitlin. Chen has served as the assistant concertmaster in the San Diego Youth Symphony and plays in the International Youth Symphony. She plans to double major in music and science in college. Chen looks forward to the musical atmosphere at Interlochen this summer. “I know there is a lot to be learned from playing in a new setting with such a diverse group of people. I’ve heard a lot about Interlochen and I know that it will be the highlight of my summer,” Chen said. Sponsored by Emerson of St. Louis, the Emerson Scholar Program provides the opportunity for outstanding high school musicians to attend Interlochen Arts Camp, located in northwest Michigan. The Emerson Scholars Award provides full tuition, private lessons, and room and board for the six-week summer program. This is the 23rd year Emerson has sponsored the scholarship program. “Every year, Interlochen Arts Camp brings together some of the most talented and motivated students from around the world,” said Interlochen President Jeffrey S. Kimpton. “To be recognized as an Emerson Scholar puts these students in a most elite and prestigious group of talented people. It is quite an honor, not only for the students themselves, but also for the people and places that helped them to become the promising young musicians they are.” For admissions information, call 231-276-7472, or visit www.interlochen.org or www.emerson.com.

SB community garden under way BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

A 180-square-foot community garden, made possible by a grant from Home Depot and the group effort of many in Eden Gardens, is becoming a reality with produce expected as early as this fall. The garden, situated in the property of St. Leo’s Mission, at the corner of Ida Avenue and Genevieve Street, will have eight to 10 plots that are each 4 to 8 feet in size. The garden will also have on-site irrigation and a lockable shed. While produce from the garden won’t be sold at local markets and stands due to St. Leo’s tax restrictions, the food will be used at the church and made available for personal use through a community lottery, said Manny Aguilar of the La Colonia de Eden Gardens Foundation. Aguilar is in the process of finalizing plans with the city, due in part to the fact that the garden will extend onto the public right of way. Aguilar said the garden is being installed for educational purposes, with a large focus on Eden Gardens youth. In addition to traditional organic gardening, the community garden will incorporate aquaponics with the help of Encinitas resident Sue Spray. She has made an art of the technique, which involves the fer-

The plants and fish live off of each other just like in a natural, balanced ecosystem and, in the end, the system produces both healthy fish and produce to consume. “It’s a wonderful tool that brings all the components of science together in an educational manner,” said Spray, a local veterinarian. “It teaches kids how to raise food economically and feasibly with no herbicides or pesticides. It’s a wonderful system for kids interested in science, or if they aren’t it may spark an interest.”

Spray is currently monitoring the garden to be installed in Eden Gardens at her own home. She said it takes a while for an aquaponic system to become balanced and stable. The community garden flat will contain both goldfish and koi, Spray said, in addition to leafy vegetables like kale, lettuce and spinach, as well as tomatoes. She may add tilapia in the future. Aguilar said the community has come out in full force with a big interest in volunteering, so volunteers are not needed at this time. For more information, contact Aguilar at (619) 6725872.

Solana Beach water board approves Fiscal Year 2013 budget The Santa Fe Irrigation District’s board of directors approved its fiscal year 2012-13 budget following a public hearing at the regular board meeting on June 21. “This balanced budget demonstrates the district’s ongoing commitment to disciplined financial management and funding of improvements to the water system infrastructure,” said SFID General Manager Michael Bardin. “The district continues to make infrastructure investments, as called for in the District’s Asset Management Master Plan and in SFID’s 10-year Capital Improvement Projects Plan.” For the upcoming year, expenditures are projected to be $29 million. This total includes $7.7 million for water purchases,

$1.3 million for existing debt service payments and $6 million for capital improvement projects. The district anticipates that 40 percent of water needs for the coming year will be met with local water from Lake Hodges. Other than water purchase costs and funding for capital improvement projects, the operating budget does not increase. “The district is taking a measured and prudent approach by prioritizing capital improvement projects that reduce the risk of more costly future repairs, and improve the efficiency of our operations.” Bardin said. To view the adopted budget, visit the District’s website at www.sfidwater.org. — Submitted press release

We need to keep the drumbeat going that we need improvements in our water system.” Lightner has been an active participant in helping to create a new “Comprehensive Policy for Sustainable Water Supply” in San Diego. Lightner said she believes that the city needs to establish guiding principles to ensure that the water supply remains both secure and affordable, develop a local

sustainable supply and reach milestones for conservation. The city’s guiding principles for water don’t include language about current challenges, such as climate change or water restrictions from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. The guidelines also don’t include the use of new technologies or the use of public-private partnerships. Lightner’s policy highlights a development of a diverse local supply, including conservation, desalination, greywater and rainwater collection, and wastewater recycling. It also stresses collaboration between local and regional businesses,

agencies, and other partners to secure water reliability and rate structures that encourage conservation and discourage waste. Penunuri talked about how the water authority is in the process of negotiation with a private desalination plant in Carlsbad. The water authority would be able to purchase water from the plant and deliver it to the region to help reduce costs. The plan is currently under public review. They are also looking at the potential of building their own desalination plant at Camp Pendleton, twice the size of the Carlsbad plant, that would be complete by 2018 or 2019. Three main factors are driving the water authority’s

rate increases: first, the rate increases from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the region’s largest imported water supplier. In April they approved an average 5 percent rate increase for 2013 and for the water authority resulted in an actual 8.5 percent increase in MWDrelated costs. MWD also continues to charge the water authority for transporting its independent Colorado River water to the San Diego region. The rates are also driven upward by planned debt service costs on the water authority’s $3.5 billion costs to improve its infrastructure of dams, pipelines, a treatment plant and other projects. These costs will in-

crease by $21 million in 2013. Lastly, the rates will also reflect the water authority receiving more water from the Imperial Irrigation District, considered more reliable than MWD and less susceptible to cutbacks due to shortages. To help mitigate the impact of these proposed increased costs, the water authority is proposing a oneyear reduction in its senior lien debt service coverage ratio. Without this, the necessary rate increase would be 17.5 percent. The authority has also made workforce reductions, deferred construction projects and made other cuts to control their costs. Lightner said people can get involved in the wa-

ter authority’s current suit against MWD for overcharging San Diego in its 2011 and 2012 rates. “Our region pays for more of the increases for improvements to the system and other jurisdictions don’t pay increases,” Lightner said. San Diego ratepayers will be overcharged by $40 million in 2012, growing close to $57 million in 2013 and up to $217 million annually by 2021. The case is currently being heard in San Francisco Superior Court. More information on the rate challenge is available at sdcwa.org/mwdrate-challenge.

have a tenant in there that uses that facility in some way related to recreation.” How the property is used is also a concern for the San Dieguito River Park JPA officials and Friends of the San Dieguito River Val-

ley, an environmental group. Susan Carter, the JPA’s deputy director, said Monday they haven’t heard anything more on where the city is on seeking new bids, noting that they check in regularly for updates. “We want to make sure that the uses the city envisions are what is in the (request for proposals) and makes it clear what the constraints (on the property) are,” she added. The club launched the 2012 season with an open house on June 2 and on June 24 hosted the Senetable Cup Finals, an event that supports Prince Harry’s and Prince William’s charity to support orphans

and children in Lesotho. On July 1, the club will host the Pan-American Cup Finals; the season wraps up on Sept. 30. “We hope we’ll be here another 25 years,” Bonaguidi said, noting that members are currently making the rounds of local community groups to keep them informed about where they stand with regards to their future plans. They’re also taking a break in their schedule the weekends of July 28-30 and Aug. 4-6 so the Surf Cup tournament can have full access to the fields. “Kids come from all over for this event,” Bonaguidi said. “They have a great time.”

Local investment firm negotiates $8 billion ship-building deal with Canadian government BY JOE TASH Ordinarily, a much larger financial investment firm would have been sitting at a table with representatives of the Canadian government, hammering out an agreement to facilitate an $8 billion ship-building contract. But there was Carmel Valley resident Todd Wilson, along with his partners in a small, San Diegobased company, holed up in a hotel conference room in Ottawa just a few days before Christmas. “Nobody’s going home for Christmas until this deal’s done,” Wilson said in a recent interview, regarding his mindset at the negotiations in December 2011. Wilson and the other negotiators cancelled their homebound flights several times in an effort to push through to the deal’s conclusion. “It was a long and hard, complex negotiation. When you got it done, you felt satisfied.” Wilson and two colleagues, Kurt Wickham of Carmel Valley and Joel Weinstein of Solana Beach, founded W Partners, their investment advisory firm, in 2009. The company, which was based in Carmel Valley until recently, when it moved to La Jolla, offers investment banking services to companies in such areas as mergers and

W Partners founders Kurt Wickham, Todd Wilson and Joel Weinstein acquisitions, raising capital, and other types of transactions. The deal in Canada, concluded last fall and winter, was by far the firm’s largest, Wilson said. Through a previous business relationship with Montana billionaire Dennis Washington, W Partners served as financial adviser to one of Washington’s companies, Seaspan Marine Corp., as it negotiated a deal with the Canadian government to build seven non-combat ships, including a polar ice-breaker. After helping Seaspan win the ship-building bid, Wilson said, W Partners helped negotiate an “um-

brella agreement,” which serves as a framework for future ship-building contracts. W Partners is also assisting Seaspan in raising capital for upgrades to its shipyards in Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia, in preparation for the ship construction, which is expected to begin next year. The three partners, who each have young families — Wilson and Wickham each have four children, and Weinstein has two — hope to leverage their experience in the Seaspan deal to assist U.S. companies in similar ventures, Wilson said.

All three worked together at RA Capital Advisors in San Diego before setting up their own investment firm. Between the three, they have experience working with financial firms in New York, London and San Francisco as well. “What we offer middle-market companies is unique in San Diego: Locally based M&A (merger and acquisition) expertise from a team that draws upon more than 30 years of investment banking experience including public and private companies of all sizes across a variety of industries,” Wickham said. “Warren Buffett is famous for saying that he tap dances to work each day because it is so much fun. I feel the same way, we really form deep relationships with our clients to help them execute critical M&A and financing transactions, and although it’s challenging to provide thoughtful advice, it is very rewarding,” said Weinstein. According to Wilson, W Partners works with business owners who want to sell their company or raise capital to acquire another company. Among the tasks they might handle are assisting in determining a company’s value, identifying potential buyers and negotiating a deal. Part of that process is learning

about the specific business. “We want to understand the business as well as the business owner,” Wilson said. Ordinarily, the partners target transactions in the range of $20 million to $200 million, but the Canadian deal turned out to be much larger. As W Partners seeks to build on its early successes (they’ve completed five transactions to date), Wilson said he is seeing improvement in the business climate. “There’s a definite sense of activity picking up,” he said. “We feel optimistic because there’s a lot of pent-up demand for quality businesses.” When the partners are not researching or advising on business deals, Wilson said, they might be found coaching Little League baseball or soccer, or serving on a nonprofit board. “We’re Wall Street guys but we’re in San Diego for a reason,” said Wilson, a surfer who travels to Fiji annually in search of waves. “We don’t want to be living in a concrete jungle in New York.” For more information, visit www.wpartners.com.

A future of hope? Choice must be made in author’s new novel set in 2050 BY KATHY DAY Even though David Brin identifies himself as a science fiction writer, he declares the genre has been misnamed. It should be called “speculative history,” the local author and futurist said before a book signing for his newest work, “Existence,” last week at Mysterious Galaxy Books in Kearny Mesa. “These are stories about the effects of change on individuals, peoples and generations.” He circles around a lot of topics in his interviews, from the state of science education — we’re not as bad off as everyone thinks, he posits — to what “artsy types” think of science fiction — they “despise it.” Be certain, though, that his interest in science fiction began with a love of history and he’s quite willing to talk about either or both. While he says only 10 percent of science fiction writers are scientists — and he’s one — all science fiction writers devour history. As a man who holds an undergraduate degree in astrophysics from Cal Tech, a master’s in electrical engi-

‘Existence’ ■ By David Brin ■ $27.99 ■ Available at www. davidbrin.com, Powells.com, Amazon.com ■ Learn more about David Brin and his work at www.davidbrin.com/ ■ Learn more about the Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination at www.clarkefoundation.org/the-future/ center/ neering and a Ph.D. in space physics from UCSD, he brings a unique understanding of science and technology to his craft. Adding adventure and imagination, he has written more than a dozen novels of his own, collaborated with other authors on more, and published graphic novels, young adult novels and nonfiction as well as short fiction. One book, “The Postman” was made into a film starring Kevin Costner in 1997. Writing was his “pas-

sionate hobby,” he said, noting that he figured he would publish a novel every five or six years while teaching and doing research. But, he added, “civilization had other plans for me ... I had success at storytelling and that became the tail that wagged the dog.” A third generation writer, Brin has won awards from Hugo International Science Fiction, the American Library Association and Nebula. (His daughter seems to be continuing the family tradition as she is now a journalism major at NYU who has designs on following in his footsteps. Brin and his wife, Cheryl, who he followed to Paris when she was doing her post-doctoral degree, also have a son at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and one at San Dieguito Academy who is working on his Eagle Scout project.) More recently, with UCSD’s Sheldon Brown, Brin helped formulate the proposal for the newly launched Arthur C. Clarke Center for the Human Imagination and will be involved as the new center at UCSD moves forward. While his role hasn’t been determined,

Author David Brin he joked that he will be “a grand old fart adviser.” Brown was UCSD’s director of the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts until he was named to head the Clarke Center which aims “to develop, catalyze, and be a global resource for research, teaching, and value-added initiatives inspired by the singularly imaginative, multi-disciplinary legacy of Sir Arthur Clarke.” Using all of the resources of the university — and with the support of all of its deans — the focus will be on collaborations around the world in technology, education, engineering, health, science, industry, environment, entertainment and the arts. Brin, who blogs regularly, calls himself the go-to guy on extraterrestrial life

and says he’s “best known as a ‘futurist’” who comments plausibly and entertainingly about trends in technology and society. He’s been featured at TEDxDelMar, addressing the question “Is Outer Space Still Part of the Dream,” has spoken to NASA scientists and, on July 14, he’ll be part of a panel at Comic-Con on “Traveling the Spacetime Continuum” and signing his recent work, “Existence.” His first new novel in nine years, “Existence” is set in 2050. His website, which includes an illustrated trailer to the work with stunning art by Patrick Farley, teases readers: “Billions of planets may be ripe for life, even intelligence. So where is Everybody? Do civilizations make the same fatal mistakes over and over? Might we be the first to cross the minefield,

evading every trap to learn the secret of Existence?” He calls himself a hopeful person. “Only by studying history can you overcome cynicism and realize how amazing this trip has been,” he said. “Think about it. Our ancestors struggled hard. The best of them dreamed we’d be better off than they were. … At this rate our grandchildren may be amazing but we’ve somehow got to get across the danger zone of the next 20 years.” That’s part of the message he’s trying to convey in “Existence” and why he picked the time frame for the novel. In it, he said, “the prospects are neither all gloomy nor all sunny.” Adding, “We’ve been very smart between now and 2050 at keeping disasters barely contained … then something new arrives that forces us to finally make up our minds about whether to deliberately choose a future of hope.” With his wife on hand at last week’s book signing, the audience of more than 50 fans who seemed more like friends than fans was ready to hear some details as Brin basked in their attention. “It’s nice to be back,” he said.

Patriot Profiles: ‘Nothing else feels right after Combat Camera’ This column presents “Patriot Profiles” to provide readers insight into the lives of our country’s heroes.

BY JEANNE MCKINNEY There’s no crew to light the scene, no quiet on the set, no director yelling cut while shooting this film. Night vision goggles might be the only light source, the noise can be nerve-shattering and there’s no time for retakes. Embedded with ground troops and armed with a digital camera, is a sailor clicking away and recording the ongoing fight for freedom. At the end of a long and often grueling assignment, she’s captured crucial information she must guard with her life. Mass Communications Specialist 1st Class Cassandra Thompson said, “The Navy has just as vibrant a Combat Camera division as other branches of the Armed Forces. People think they’re the ones on the ground doing all the ‘cool guy’ stuff and the Navy stays on a ship. I’ve been in the Navy 10 years and on a ship two months.” Out on patrol, MC1 Thompson is frightened, but not by what’s going on around her. “My greatest

concern is to do my job well because there’s a commander sitting in his office waiting on my footage to try and figure out what his next decision’s going to be.” She flashes a catchy smile, “Plus, I’ve got SEALS on my team.” She tells herself, “I have to get these photos because they’re going to be really upset if I come back empty-handed.” She knows the success of current or future missions could depend on her imagery. COMCAM1 is recognized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) as an essential battlefield information resource that supports strategic, operational and tactical mission objectives, according to the Fleet Combat Camera Group Pacific mission statement. Thompson came to America from Trinidad to go to college, earning a bachelor’s degree in journalism. She was halfway through grad school, studying mass communications at the University of Florida, when she joined the Navy. “Although I had a job at

the Florida Park Service which I loved, I couldn’t see myself going very far in that position. I had all these dreams to travel the world and be a writer for Time magazine and all this other stuff.” The Navy sent her to Bahrain in 2005, where she did a stint at Naval Central Command (NAVCENT) 5th Fleet Public Affairs. Her job was news writing (her strength) about anything going on in the Middle East. “Public Affairs pride themselves on getting news to the world fast and accurately. We’re instructed to have the story out within an hour of the event breaking, even if it’s sensitive or tragic.” If all they know is there’s a fire on an oil platform, they have to report that while they continue to gather the facts. Thompson heard about Combat Camera in Bahrain and didn’t know anything about it when she joined. “I don’t believe any telephone conversation can adequately prepare you for what a

Combat Camera assignment will entail.” She would soon find out. “When you go in the field, if you don’t know what your job is, someone will quickly educate you.” Nobody gets into Combat Camera without passing Search, Survival, Evasion, and Resistance (SERE) school. Thompson explains, “Military personnel learn how to survive under austere conditions, avoid capture and, if all else fails, return with honor from a POW situation. Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, captured in 2009 by the Taliban in Afghanistan, is reportedly America’s last living POW. He’s a constant reminder that SERE training may have real-life application.” Before each deployment they complete a Basic Operations firearms training course. “It’s a lot of weapons,” says Thompson, who’d never touched small arms before. They must also know how to operate the camera equipment and put together a video or contact sheet. When out on patrol, you’re expected to bring back a minimum of five photos a day. “There’s going to be evSEE PATRIOT, PAGE 19

Will your property rights be stolen next? On June 18, the Del Mar City Council received the Village Specific Plan (VSP) and listened to the staff’s report. That report was woefully incomplete. Did you know that the proposed VSP intends to coerce private property owners to surrender their land for public use? We all understand that parking can be a challenge in Del Mar, but this proposal is an affront to rights we hold dear as Americans. Back in 1967, the City required restaurants to provide one parking space per 90 square feet of inside restaurant space. There were only three restaurants then. Today, according to the Del Mar Village Association

website, there are 26. The City doesn’t require any of them to comply with the City’s very difficult parking ordinance except for one: my property at 1201 Camino del Mar. For many years the City has singled out 1201 Camino del Mar for enforcement of parking standards while failing to enforce these parking standards against any other property. My commercial property is by far the bestparked building in town. The City refuses to allow me to lease 25 percent of my building, however, because the City wants to convert my private parking into a public parking lot. That’s what the VSP’s pro-

posed parking element is all about. Three years ago the City published a study, which singled out 1201 Camino del Mar with the statement: “It appears that the existing underground parking could possibly be integrated into any future underground parking schemes located to the north of the site, creating a “shared use” parking scenario for the entire block.” Basically, the City is saying that 1201 Camino del Mar has enough parking for the whole town, but not enough for its own lease space. Why should this matter to you? It should matter

because if the City will single out me and my property, they can single out any resident or property owner in Del Mar. This is a serious over-reach of the government. Del Mar must establish reasonable parking standards without requiring commercial property owners to convert their private parking into the public parking lots. This “give us your parking” strategy will never redevelop Del Mar. If the VSP parking proposal goes through, it will be impossible for a developer to obtain a construction loan on a property because it will be gutted of its property rights and left with the obligation

to pay the property taxes, maintenance and insurance on a public parking garage. The VSP is just a notso-veiled attempt to convert 80 percent of my property into a public parking garage. The answer is “NO!” I will not donate $2 million of my property’s value to the City in return for the right to collect rent. It is wrong to have a parking ordinance that does not apply to everyone equally. I ask the City to establish reasonable parking standards and enforce their parking ordinance in a uniform manner. If the City of Del Mar can take my property, they can take yours, too. George Conkwright 1201 Camino del Mar

Scientists find protein effects psoriasis and wound care RESEARCH REPORT BY LYNNE FRIED MANN Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder of out-of-control skin cell proliferation. For hard-toLYNNE heal wounds, FRIEDMANN the problem is just the opposite: Restorative skin cells don’t grow well or fast enough. An international team of scientists, led by the UC San Diego School of Medicine, report on a molecule that may lead to new treatments for both conditions. Researchers analyzed skin biopsies of patients with and without psoriasis, as well as the skin of mice with psoriasis and with wounds. They discovered that the molecule regenerating islet-derived protein 3-alpha (REG3A) is highly expressed in skin cells during psoriasis and wound-healing, but not under nor-

mal skin conditions. In tests on mice, researchers found that inhibiting REG3A slowed wound-healing but cleared up psoriasis. Thus, a drug that inhibits the expression of REG3A could represent a targeted way to treat psoriasis without the systemic immunosuppression problems of current treatments. Conversely, a drug that stimulates or mimics REG3A could boost cell growth and improve wound healing. The findings appear in the journal Immunity. News release at http://bit.ly/ KX81Nh. Reversing Huntington’s disease symptoms A drug treatment has been shown to silence the mutated gene responsible for Huntington’s disease, slowing and partially reversing progression of the fatal neurodegenerative disorder in animal models. Huntington’s disease afflicts approximately 30,000 Americans, whose symptoms include uncontrolled movements and progressive cognitive and psychiatric problems. The cause is a single-gene mutation which results in the production and

accumulation of toxic proteins in the brain. Currently, there is no effective treatment. Researchers at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (UCSD School of Medicine) infused mouse and primate models of Huntington’s disease with one-time injections of a DNA drug that selectively binds to and destroys the mutant gene’s molecular instructions for making the toxic protein. A singular treatment produced rapid results: Animals moving better within one month and achieving normal motor function within two. The benefits also persisted nine months, well after the drug had cleared from an animal’s system and production of the toxic proteins resumed. The findings appear in the journal Neuron. News release at http://bit.ly/ MmdXzv. Nanocubes for next generation antennas, lenses Researchers at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering have developed a technique that enables metallic nanocrystals to spontaneously self-assemble and organize into complex materials for

next-generation antennas and lenses. The research comes from the new field of nanoplasmonics; the goal of which is to develop materials to manipulate light using structures smaller than the wavelength of light itself. Nanocubes used in this study were less than 0.1 microns; by comparison, the breadth of a human hair is 100 microns. Normally when cubes stack, they pack side-by-side. A new method was developed to graft polymer chains to the cube surfaces. Shorter polymer chains caused cubes to stack normally, while placing long polymer chains produced edge-toedge stacking. This ability to create macroscopic films of nanocubes with two different orientations allowed for the reflection and transmission of different wavelengths of light. The findings appear in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. News release at http://bit.ly/LWMLJC. — Lynne Friedmann is a science writer based in Solana Beach.

Left4Dead to perform at the CV Summer Serenades Concert July 1 This Sunday, July 1, will be the second of five concerts in the Summer Serenades concerts series hosted by the Carmel Valley Recreation Council. After an incredible kickoff with Atomic Groove last Sunday, this concert features the band Left4Dead, a seven-member rock band that plays “crowd pleasing, generation spanning danceable rock and roll.” The concert will be at Solana Highlands Neighborhood Park (3520 Longrun Drive, San Diego, 92130) and goes from 5-7 p.m. San Diego crowds have been entertained by the music of Left4Dead since 1999. The band plays a variety of music, from Elvis to The Stones to The Doors to Van Morrison, sprinkled with contemporary songs from The Red Hot Chili Peppers

to The Black keys. They have played with the likes of Chris Isaac, Tommy Castro, John Hiatt, and Jason Mraz. Their music is classy and fun with a well-blended sound, great vocalists and a repertoire that is classic but not clichéd. The band members are all serious professional musicians, but they hold down real-life “day jobs” in a variety of interesting fields, including law, real estate investment, broadcasting, education and food distribution. They come together to play their music and create a high energy event that will have everyone dancing and having a great time. The band’s “tongue in cheek” name derives from the famous Rolling Stones song, “Jumping Jack Flash” and its famous lyric line: “I was drowned, washed up and left for dead.” Since the band is anything but, when members wondered if the One Paseo development was included in the traffic studies. It was determined One Paseo does not have to because it is an unapproved project at this time. Board member Guy Ravad marveled that two enormous projects could be developed at the same time, without consideration of the other, and possibly receive approval simultaneously.

The concerts are free to the public and you are encouraged you to bring your family and friends and enjoy an evening of music and dancing.

MC1 Thompson remembers when the Navy teamed up with Medical Civilian Action Program (MEDCAP) in the Philippines. “I had no idea cleft palate could be so prevalent. Little children were lined up out the door waiting to see the volunteer surgeons of ‘Operation Smile.’ In these rural areas, if you have that deformity you’ll be locked away and no one will ever see you.

er. A rare photo she snapped while documenting counter-piracy won her a “2010 Military Photographer of the Year” award. Somali pirates had taken over the seas and were holding ships hostage — and killing people. A group of nations came together as a combined task force to patrol the oceans. The original plan was to apprehend them and send them to a chosen African country to be held at trial, but money to feed, clothe and shelter all these pirates became everyone’s problem. “In the end,” reports Thompson, “we [left] them out in the middle of the ocean with just enough gas to get back to Somalia and we [blew] up the Mother ship that had the rest of the barrels of oil.” MC1 Thompson knows why people who leave Combat Camera fight tooth and nail to get back, because nothing else feels right after that. “I have no idea what other job I could do that would be as amazing as this one. I’m happy people will know what our part was in America’s history in the war and for being able to see the way world events took place.”

BY JOE TASH After 20 years of writing screenplays for movies and television shows, Deborah Serra decided she wanted more creative control over her work. Serra’s career decision resulted in the publication of her first novel, “Primal,” in May. Switching from scripts to books wasn’t the only major departure for Serra, a local resident — challenged by the prevailing sentiment in Hollywood that women writers were best suited for comedies, romances or children’s stories, she determined that her first book would be a crime thriller. “Primal,” which is available as an e-book for both Amazon’s Kindle and Barnes and Noble’s Nook readers, is about a band of brothers who go on a murderous rampage at a resort in the woods of Minnesota. The main character is a woman — motivated by the need to protect her family — who confronts them. Serra, a mother of three herself, first penned “Primal” as a screenplay and sold the film rights to James Cameron, director of such films as “Titanic,” “Avatar,” and “Terminator.” When Cameron decided to focus solely on scripts that he wrote himself, Serra was able to get permission to turn her script into a novel. During her career as a screenwriter, she said, she had worked with many different producers, directors and actors, and had often received suggestions for changes to her scripts, even from hairdressers and makeup artists. “It’s a collaborative art,” the award-winning writer said of screenwriting. “I wanted the freedom to do whatever I wanted.” Along with “Primal,” she is working on two other books — a humorous travelogue about trips she has taken with her sister, and a literary novel that ties into her passion for science. The book explores such themes as consciousness and free will, she said. “It’s been quite liberating for me,” she said of her recent writing projects. “Primal” gave Serra a chance to delve into the minds of her characters, including the murderous brothers. In seeking to sell the original screenplay, she bumped up against stereotypes held by producers, that women couldn’t write in the genres of crime and thrillers. Serra recalled sitting in the office of one producer who asked her point-blank, “Did you write this?” When she replied in the affirmative, he asked, “By yourself?” The book chronicles the main character’s inner journey after she returns home from her encounter with the killers. The experience changes her to the extent that people around her think she’s going insane, and she loses her

Quick facts Name: Deborah Serra

Deborah Serra job, family and friends, Serra said. The script was sent out under the name of D.A. Serra, so as not to give away the author’s gender. “They wouldn’t have read it if it said ‘Deborah’ on the front,” she said. As Serra becomes comfortable with writing novels instead of screenplays, she is also learning the ropes of a publishing business in which e-books and online media play an ever-larger role. “It’s like the Wild West out there,” she said. In September, she’ll embark on a “blog tour,” doing interviews with writers and reviewers for genre-specific websites, as well as sites geared for general audiences. Among book-related sites she’s targeting are Bookslut.com, Bookgasm.com and Beatrice.com. By appearing in such online publications, she said, she can build momentum for her book, and hopefully fuel sales. One of the things she enjoys about writing books is that she can depart from the strictures of screenwriting, in which the action is driven almost completely by dialogue, to include narration, metaphor and other literary techniques, Serra said. But her roots as a screenwriter keep her focused on the development of character as a primary source of inspiration. “If you can create a character who’s whole, a real whole person, and put them into a scene, you don’t have to write dialogue, it writes itself,” she said.

At 95, woman shares life of healing, inspired by encounter with Jung BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET

In the 1950s, Katie Sanford struggled to find her place in the world amid the conventional expectations of being a wife and mother. Fueled in part by psychological wounds left from the loss of her mother at age 7, she felt as though she was near death and, as a last resort, sought the expertise of renowned Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. Now 95 and one of the earliest residents of Del Mar, Sanford is one of the last living people to have met and shared time with Jung, who has amassed a large following over the years for his theories and founding of analytical psychology. Sanford said she was invited by Jung to Switzerland because he thought her case might help him in his own studies, particularly those regarding his creation of the concept of archetypes — symbols or patterns that can shed light on personality. “The level of material I was working with, the level I was operating on, was an archetypal level,” said Sanford, who recalls her bravery in traveling alone from Del Mar to Switzerland, via both airplane and the Queen Mary ocean liner. “He was curious and interest-

From left: Katie Sanford, 95, stands with her daughter, Lynette, in her Del Mar home of nearly 65 years. PHOTO: CLAIRE HARLIN ed because it would relate to his work.” Lynette Walker, Sanford’s daughter, was 14 when her mother left for several months to seek out Jung, who has recently emerged in popular culture as the subject of the 2011 movie “A Dangerous Method.” “He wanted to make sense of her search for the meaning of life, which was so different than what women of her time were experi-

encing,” Walker said during a recent interview at Sanford’s Del Mar home. “In a way, he recognized that she was channeling something on a different level than the way most people were operating and it was powerful.” Sanford said she and Jung shared the same psychological beliefs that “aside from our daily conditioning, the inevitable issues we pick up from our parents and education, one can make available

the information that exists in their dreams and fantasies.” “To make sense of that information and incorporate it into your life, that’s what let’s you know who you can be as a whole person,” Sanford said. “You can take away everything that’s expected of you and be your authentic self.” Both Sanford and her husband, the late Dr. Sandy Sanford, became trained Jungian analysts decades ago, and they were founding members of the San Diego Friends of Jung. The Sanfords began holding weekly discussion meetings at their home more than 35 years ago, and Sanford still keeps the meetings going today, having brought together dozens of like minds over the years. The San Diego Friends of Jung has also begun holding lectures at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, located at 334 14th St. in Del Mar. A notable teaching of Jung is that art can be used to alleviate consuming feelings and repair, restore and heal patients. More specifically, he wrote in his manuscripts that art expressions and images found in dreams can be helpful in recovering from emotional distress. Sanford also saw art as more

than just recreational. Over the course of about 30 years, beginning in the 1950s, Sanford created more than 60 large-scale paintings, which she tucked away in a shed until Walker, her daughter, had them published 10 years ago. The resulting book, which has full-color photos of the paintings and corresponding written commentaries on each, came to be called “The Serpent and the Cross.” Along with the paintings, numerous lectures given by Sanford over the years have been made into an archive that can be accessed in The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism (www. aras.org), located in San Francisco. “They felt her work is representative of the modern myth of where we are in the evolutionary process in relation to opening the feminine archetype,” Walker said. “This is not the same thing as feminism; it’s a natural paradigm shift, a feminine Renaissance.” For more information about the San Diego Friends of Jung group, and their lectures in Del Mar, visit www.jungsandiego.com. There will be a new lecture series beginning this summer. For more information on Sanford and her book, visit www.serpentandcross. com.

CV artist invited to show work at Balboa Park’s Spanish Village Art Center

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY KAREN BILLING Carmel Valley artist Sue Britt was recently accepted into Balboa Park’s Spanish Village Art Center, San Diego’s largest collection of studio artists. Starting in July, Britt will share her unique pieces of art in the medium of paper tapestry, using strips of paper to create impressive nature scenes. Britt has been an artist all of her life, thanks to her artist mother who had her doing art projects from a very young age. Her creative spirit went wild with projects in sewing, painting, drawing, needlepoint and photography. “I had lots of encouragement and I think that’s one of the most important things for artists, to be encouraged to be creative, take risks, give it a whirl, throw it up and see what comes out of it,” Britt said. Britt went on to get her degree in architecture and practiced for six years before moving on to Peace Corps work, community development work, and then staying home with her children. “(Being a mom) is one of the most creative endeavors I’ve ever done,” said Britt. Like her own childhood, she encouraged her

kids to experience art at an early age and eventually brought it into their school classrooms. At Carmel Creek Elementary School, she developed a writing and illustrating program for fourth grade students where the children made their own books that were put on display in the library. At Solana Pacific, she led an art and science discovery program called “Whosit, Whatsit, Why.” “To me, that is a piece of life experience and the creative spirit…encouraging kids to get out there and experiment,” said Britt. Britt didn’t stop at just getting children to be creative—she also started a group for her adult friends called The Artist’s Way. Britt based her group on the book “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron that outlines a 12week creative program with daily exercises and art projects. “It’s all about discovering what you love, what you like to do and want to do,” Britt said. “It asks you how you see the world, to be creative and excited about it and want to put your ideas out into the world.” The 12-week program has now lasted six years and, through the Artist’s Way,

many of her friends have discovered not just creative outlets but success in art fields such as writing and photography. Britt has been playing with the art of paper tapestry and paper boxes for the last five years. “It was just something fun I did on the side. I love paper and got to use it in an interesting way,” Britt said. “Although I’m not practicing architecture anymore, all those skills about design, balance and seeing, carries over to what I do now, My work has a 3-D feel to it, there’s a lot of structure.” Strips of beautiful and colorful handmade paper are cut, wrapped and weaved to create a picture. She creates shadow and edge by adding a backing of twoply illustration board to the strips of paper so it doesn’t just lay flat but has depth. “There’s a lot of room to be explored (in paper tapestry) and I expect to be exploring this for a long time,” Britt said. Her goal is to create art that tells stories and she is most drawn to nature stories, such as the changing color of the bark of Madrona trees on San Juan Islands. The first year she was in San Diego was right after a

big fire and she was inspired by watching burned areas come back to life. One of her pieces shows bright green grass sprouting from the charred earth, a brilliant and colorful root system shown underneath the black. “It’s a story of rejuvenation, I love that and how it ties into our lives,” said Britt, who is also an avid hiker. “I find that very inspiring.” She carved out a studio for herself in the garage, with Ikea shelves fully stocked with art books boxing her into a cozy, creative

corner. Stacks of pretty paper surround her workstation as well as pieces of her mother’s copper enamelist works that she is incorporating into her paper boxes. A new piece she is working on sprouted from her learning about yucca plants and how they live for seven years before dying. Her piece takes a cue from tree rings, with purple rings representing the yucca’s seven-year life. “When I learned about that I wanted it to be a part of my art so I could tell people that story so they know that when they go out into

nature,” Britt said. “You connect more when you know the cycle of the world around you.” She has only recently begun showing her work and will be a part of the Coronado Art Walk in September. Her entrance into Spanish Village came from a chance encounter with one of the artists while she was on a visit there. In talking about her art, the artist encouraged Britt to try to get into the village, a process that involves applying to a twice-yearly jury. There are 40 studios in the village and more than 100 artists there. Britt successfully juried in and will work a couple days a week in a studio with three other artists, starting in July. As a member of the village, artists can also have a tent in the courtyard whenever they want. The experience of how she got there is exactly why she is excited to be in the Village. “I’m excited about talking and sharing with other artists,” Britt said. Spanish Village studios are open every day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit www. spanishvillageart.com. For more on Sue Britt, visit www.PaperTapestry.net

Shakespeare Festival under way Two more summer shows The Old Globe Theatre’s 2012 Shakespeare Festival features three classics playing in repertory through Sept. 30 in the outdoor Lowell Davies Festival Theatre: • ”As You Like It” follows flirtation, friendship and mistaken identity in one of Shakespeare’s mostbeloved comedies. Rosalind escapes into the forest and adopts the persona of a man to get close to her beloved Orlando. But when he falls for another woman, she must untangle the web of deceptions she has woven to win her true love. Directed by Adrian Noble. • “Richard III” is one of Shakespeare’s most diabolical and outrageous villains. As the power-hungry lord sabotages those around him with cunning and treachery in his quest to seize the English crown, his tenuous path to victory begins to crumble. Royal Court Theatre director

Lindsay Posner makes his Old Globe debut with this riveting portrait of obsession and betrayal. • “Inherit the Wind,” by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee tells the story of a schoolteacher put on trial for teaching Charles Darwin’s theories of evolution, and the two powerhouse lawyers who clash on issues of faith and science. Adrian Noble directs the courtroom drama loosely based on the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial. — From Globe Reports

The fascinating contest forms

the backdrop for an even greater battle as the leading minds of the Renaissance clash over political gain, personal riches and the immortality of art. • “God of Carnage,” Yasmina Reza’s Tony Awardwinning comedy, directed by Richard Seer, July 27– Sept. 2 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre. Meet two pairs of parents, one of whose child has hurt the other at a public park, who meet to discuss the matter in a civilized manner.

Whynot decided some 12 years ago that Del Mar was where she wanted to anchor because “it just felt right,” and after traveling the world for years, McCabe-Young also said she didn’t want to settle anywhere other than Del Mar. When it came time to find a new space for Place360, the two owners looked far and wide, even outside Del Mar, “but just kept looking because we really wanted to stay here,” McCabe-Young said. “I always say my soul lives in Del Mar,” she said.

It’s not uncommon for people to seek out high-end designation resort spas for the sake of having every upscale wellness service imaginable under one roof, along with a variety of credentialed practitioners. But it’s not always practical to go on vacation just to improve one’s well-being, or at least that’s the mentality two local ladies had when they launched Place360 Health + Spa two years ago. Tucked away in the Del Mar Medical Arts Building, the facility has become a staple in the community for Chinese herbs and homeopathic remedies, among other spa services. As of last month, the business’s success has allowed owners Helen McCabe-Young and Tracy Whynot to open a larger location and offer more services at 1219 Camino Del Mar, the former site of Belloccio Salon and Boutique. “There’s a lot of curiosity about Chinese medicine, but there’s some trepidation. One would actually have to book an appointment to learn about it, and not everyone is going to do that,” said McCabe-Young. “Now we have much better visibility and access to the community. Anyone can walk through our doors and get information about Chinese herbal medicine.” Upon walking into Place360, a visitor will see a lifestyle retail area with an artistically-designed apothecary for custom-blended Chinese herbs. Place360 also sells custom-made essential oils formulated for their own massage therapy treatments. At Place360, clients can cobble together their own integrated wellness program that incorporates fitness, healing and beauty. McCabeYoung’s goal is to offer full integration under one big roof — and rooftop! (Place360 offers rooftop yoga and events on occasion.) “Sometimes you may just need a massage or facial, but if an injury comes up we can refer them in house,” said McCabe-Young. “Other times someone might come in for something serious like rehabilitation for a sports injury or an emotional issue or a digestive problem, and coming here may open their eyes to an entire path to wellness they could be taking.” With the larger space, Place360 has added more fitness options, including pilots and yoga, to its menu of services, which also includes

Veterinarians team up to open Torrey Pines Animal Hospital BY KAREN BILLING The new Torrey Pines Animal Hospital is now seeing furry, feathered and scaled clients at Carmel Valley’s Piazza Carmel Shopping Center. The clinic opened on May 21 and offers routine vet care, boarding, grooming, surgery, internal medicine and emergency coverage. Three veterinarians with a wealth of experience between them, Dr. Jon Reuter, Dr. Andrew McClellan and Dr. Brad Steele, head up the hospital, offering “top-notch, quality care.� McClellan, a Torrey Pines High graduate, is a familiar face to Carmel Valley. For the last 10 years he has worked at Pacific Petcare in Carmel Country Plaza, but leapt at the chance to start his own practice with a pair of vets and friends that all believe in the same style of veterinary medicine. “A lot of clients have been able to find me which is fantastic and definitely is part of the reason to open up here and stay close by,� McClellan said. At Torrey Pines Animal Hospital, the goal is to offer the community high-end medicine and diagnostics, the next level up in veterinary care. They said they offer reasonable options and experienced care with the most advanced, modern equipment. “We’re advocates for doing what’s appropriate for the animal,

that doesn’t necessarily mean the most expensive thing,� said Reuter, a Torrey Hills resident. “The quality of life of the animal is what’s important and we want to do what’s in the best interest of the owner and the animal.� Good communication is key and Reuter said they really want to understand client needs. “That’s his forte,� Reuter said of McClellan. “Establishing a relationship with the owner and the animal.� All three vets are graduates of UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, although their time there overlapped and they didn’t meet until later. They were friends first, hiking and mountain biking buddies, and became business partners later. McClellan said that from a young age he always wanted to work with animals, but wasn’t as sure by junior high school when he felt that pets were scared to be around veterinarians. But during his first year of college he started working at a vet hospital and he changed his mind. “I started to think about it more in earnest and what I had to do to get there,� McClellan said. “I knew I wanted to work in the medical field and I always had a love and interest in animals. It was inevitable.� Reuter grew up in Minnesota and was an active participant in

He didn’t want to enter the practice vet field until the situation was right, where he could get into management and implement his own ideas. “It took a long time to get here, a lot of thought went into it and circumstances aligned,� Reuter

gyms for the more active guys, Reuter said. In the back they have an inhome lab, pharmacy and diagnostics, treatment rooms, and surgical space with new, up-to-date equipment. A digital x-ray works like a digital camera, allowing them to adjust resolution and zoom without exposing staff and patients longer than needed. “It’s much more efficient and easier to send files to specialists or to client records,� Reuter said. Reuter and McClellan aim to have a green practice — everything in the hospital will be digital from records to diagnostic x-rays and lab work. It can all be uploaded to the patient file in real time. While the single-doctor practice of the past had its limitations, Torrey Pines wants to be able to meet any need, from basic vet care to major surgeries. “We’re trying to be a one-stop shop for everything,� Reuter said. Torrey Pines Animal Hospital is located at 3890 Valley Centre Drive, #101, Carmel Valley, 92130, next to Royal Dance Academy in the Piazza Carmel Shopping Center. The hospital is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Walk-ins are welcome but appointments preferred. Call (858) 7208724; www. torreypinesvets.com.

Steele used to have his own practice in Vista and specializes in birds, reptiles, exotics and â&#x20AC;&#x153;pocket pets,â&#x20AC;? such as hamsters and Guinea pigs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rather than compete with each other we decided to join forces and do it right,â&#x20AC;? said Reuter. Reuter will split time between Torrey Pines and the Salk Institute where he serves as the senior director of the animal research program. His experience with lab animals enables him to take care of rabbits, ferrets, and all exotics. They hope as they develop a solid client base they can begin offering home health care where vets could do house calls. Both Reuterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Steeleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wives, Rani and Sophie respectively, are also veterinarians and may also fill in at Torrey Pines. Their new space was formerly a single doctor vet practice for the last 20 years and since they have taken ownership, the hospital has undergone a major renovation and modernization. They have done a lot with a little space, giving up having a little more room by having such a great location and visibility in the community. Right up front is a new â&#x20AC;&#x153;cat condoâ&#x20AC;? area where cats get to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the back of the hospital. The condos can shift in size as needed and they can even create little jungle

Del Mar Foundation celebrates the sounds of summer

P

owerhouse Park in Del Mar was filled to capacity on the evening of June 19 with thousands of classic rock music fans. In honor of the Del Mar Foundation’s 30th Anniversary Celebration, the always-popular local band, the Mar Dels, delighted concert attendees who danced the night away. The Mar Dels trace their roots to the Village of Del Mar and are a crowdpleasing favorite every time they perform as part of the Summer Twilight Concert series. For three decades the Del Mar Foundation has been organizing Summer Twilight Concerts in a spectacular setting overlooking the ocean in Del Mar. Each year the fan base seems to grow, with happy throngs of people who picnic, dance and sing along with the music. This year was no exception with the park filling up early as the sun shone brightly throughout the afternoon. New this year is “Opening Acts” sponsored by Zel’s Del Mar. On June 19 the opening act was singer/songwriter Lee Coulter, who warmed up the crowd beginning at 6 p.m. As always, both locals and visitors to the community brought lawn chairs, blankets, picnic dinners, children, grandchildren, dogs and a bottle of wine to enjoy the music with

friends and neighbors. A word to the wise: come early to get a spot on the grass and remember to bring your wallet with you so you can participate in the evening’s raffle of gift certificates donated by local businesses and restaurants, as well as purchase a specially designed Summer Twilight Concert T-shirt. These concerts would not be possible without the financial support of local sponsors. The Del Mar Foundation works in partnership with the business community to underwrite the concerts and counts on their participation each year to make them a reality. This year Concert Patrons include long-time sponsor the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and, new this year, Marrokal Design & Remodeling. Concert Supporters Jake’s Del Mar, Pacifica Del Mar, Poseidon on the beach, and Sbicca have joined them in underwriting the four concerts. Mark your calendars for the remaining three concerts featuring: • Rockola on July 17 at 7 p.m. • Eve Selis Band on August 21 at 7:00 pm • The Heroes on September 9 at 5:00 pm You can find out more about the Del Mar Foundation by visiting our website at www.delmarfoundation.org.

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN What better way to salute America on the Fourth of July than to rejoice with one of the staple crops of the fledgling nation – corn. Corn of Plenty Squanto was the Native American savior of the New England colonists. He taught them to use the Iroquois’ “Three Sisters” method of planting. A pioneer of sustainable farming, Squanto believed the trio of corn (then called maize), beans, and squash were precious gifts from the Great Spirit, each sister an equal farming partner for fertilizing the soil and helping the others thrive. The maize crop was the “tall sister,” the one who had been specially cultivated to grow enough food to sustain a family for an entire year without harming the environment. Stalk Options A bumper crop of locally grown juicy sweet corncobs overflows at farmers markets in time for July 4th feasts. Popular varieties include the white-pearly Silver Queen, yellow-kernelled Golden Bantam, and the bi-color checkerboard-patterned Ambrosia Hybrid. Super Sweet and sugary-enhanced hybrid varieties have been developed with higher than normal levels of sugar (12-20 percent), the latter divinely creamy and tender with a true old-fashioned corn flavor. Dent corn characterized by an indentation in each kernel is used for animal feed and industrial needs, while hard-shelled Flint corn, aka Indian Corn, which comes in designer shades of indigo blue and rusty red, is used to make popcorn, cornmeal or for ornamental purposes.

lesterol and sodium, and is an antioxidant warrior with a motherload of dietary fiber, thiamin and folate. Although most of corn’s calories come from carbs, it can be made into a low-fat, high-fiber, heart-healthy snack like popcorn, minus the salt and butter, of course. Two corn warnings: It must be cooked (our guts can’t break down the hearty cellulose in raw kernels) and corn also tends to cause mild inflammation because of blood sugar spikes. Standing advice: moderation. Lost in a Maize There has been a lot of controversy about Bt corn, short for the soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, which has been used to genetically modify corn’s DNA to impart an internal insecticide mechanism that repels pests. Corn has also been hit with another toxin called Roundup, so that it can withstand weed herbicides without succumbing itself. Since conventional corn has been clobbered with this double chemical whammy, best to buy unadulterated organic over Frankenstein corn. Cornucopia • 400,000 farms from the Corn Belt to California produce nearly 10 billion bushels a year to make corn America’s top field crop; • Each ear is packed with 800 kernels in 16 rows;

Del Mar is now considering two amendments to its certified LCP as corresponding parts of the City’s efforts to adopt a Village Specific Plan for an approximately 33-acre portion of the community’s downtown area. The two proposed Local Coastal Program Amendments (LCPAs) are described below. LCPA-12-01 would change the land use designation for the geographic area of the Village Specific Plan from its current CC (Central Commercial) designation, as shown on map exhibits in the LCP Land Use Plan and Implementing Ordinances, to a designation of VSP (Village Specific Plan). The amended Land Use Plan and Implementing Ordinance land use maps would be accompanied by a list and general description of allowable uses for properties in the VSP Plan area. No other changes are proposed within LCPA-12-01. The mix of uses proposed in the VSP is consistent with the range of uses allowed under the current Central Commercial Zone designation including: retail, restaurant, personal services, lodging houses, offices, residential development and public facilities. The Village Specific Plan itself will also include set development parameters for future projects in the plan area, including maximum building heights, required building setbacks and maximum allowable floor area ratios. The Village Specific Plan also includes regulations for the protection of public views. LCPA-12-02 would amend the language of the LCPA Land Use Plan and would establish a new Chapter of the LCP Implementing Ordinances regarding parking for uses on private property and for the general public in the area of the Village Specific Plan. The amended Land Use Plan and new Implementing Ordinance Chapter would be applied in concert with existing LCP regulations to new and redevelopment projects in the Village Specific Plan.

Del Mar’s first-ever “race-ready racehorse sale” will be presented in its paddock following the day’s card on Sunday, July 22. The sale is expected to begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. The idea behind the event is to bring out-of-state horses onto the Del Mar/ California racing scene and to introduce new owners to the business in one-stopshopping fashion. Barretts Equine Limited, California’s premier horse auction company, will conduct the sale and hopes to present at least 20, and perhaps as many as 40, horses of all ages ready for racing at the Del Mar meeting. The two pubs flanking the paddock – the Whittingham and the new 17 Hands – will be open for food and drink during the session, as will the second-level Veranda Café, overlooking the paddock. Del Mar partner Sentient Jet has signed on as the sponsor of the event, which will be known as the “Del Mar Paddock Sale, Presented by Sentient Jet.” Many of the sale horses will be eligible immediately for advantages under the track’s “Ship and Win” program, which was a big hit when initially tried last summer. The program pro-

vides for out-of-state runners who are brought to Del Mar to earn a check for $1,000 for their first local start, then be eligible further for an extra bonus of 25 percent on top of whatever they win in purse monies in that start. The July 22 paddock sale will be open to all interested parties, newcomers and experienced owners alike. If you’re considering first-time ownership of a horse – either individually or with partners – you’re encouraged to contact the Thoroughbred Owners of California (toconline.com) and/or research ownership through The Jockey Club’s new website for prospective owners — www.ownerview.com There will also be a special seminar for prospective owners on-track on Sunday morning. Anyone interested in selling out-of-state horses at the event, should contact Barretts’ Kim Lloyd by phone (909) 629-3099 or e-mail Lloyd@barretts.com Del Mar’s 37-day meeting starts on Wednesday, July 18, and runs through to Wednesday, Sept. 5.
