Keep Torrey Hills in District One, planning board says BY JOE TASH CONTRIBUTOR The Torrey Hills Community Planning Board has a message for the San Diego Redistricting Commission: their neighborhood is part of City Council District 1 and they want to keep it that way. The board voted unanimously at its meeting on Tuesday, July 19, to send a letter to the commission, outlining the reasons why the community of Torrey Hills belongs in Council District 1, which includes Pacific Highlands Ranch, Del Mar Mesa, Carmel Valley, Torrey Pines, University City and La Jolla. The commission is in the midst of redrawing San Diego’s city council districts, a task mandated by law to occur every 10 years, following the U.S. Census. This year, the job is additionally complicated because the commission must create a new, ninth council district. Board president Kathryn Burton brought the issue to the panel’s attention after attending a recent commission hearing where commissioners discussed moving Torrey Hills, a community of about 10,000 residents, into three different council districts. Torrey Hills is located east of the Torrey Pines state reserve and south of Carmel Valley along the Interstate 5 corridor. “I think we should write a letter. We have See TORREY, Page 6

Vernal pools slow east-west trail connection BY SUZANNE EVANS CONTRIBUTOR Anxious to include a provision for an east-west trail connection in the final Resource Management Plan for the Carmel Mountain and Del Mar Mesa Preserves, Del Mar Mesa Chair Gary Levitt met recently with Chris Zirkle, city deputy director of open space, and members of the California Dept. of Fish and Game. Levitt described the meeting at the Del Mar Mesa planning board’s July 14 meeting. At the city meeting, Levitt was joined by Rob Mikuteit, representing the San Diego Mountain Bike Association, strong supporters of keeping previously created “tunnel” trails (narrow trails under a rich canopy) in the plan, to express their concerns about the missing east-west trail link. “If there is no east-west connection, people will make their own,” Mikuteit cau-

tioned the board. As the final preserve resource management plan nears completion, including hiking, biking and equestrian trails, some groups are surprised that vernal pools, with tiny endangered fairy shrimp, could be at the center of resistance to the east-west trail, while the CA Dept. of Fish and Game, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, owning a total of 137 preserve acres, struggle to prevent trails from touching the pools. The preserves are in the Multiple Habitat Planning Area (MHPA) intended to preserve sensitive habitat. “The DFG has to sit there and say with a straight face that trails can’t touch the pools,” Levitt said. “They are aggressively trying to protect their property but recognize there is no east-west connection and hope there can be a resolution.” Board member Lisa Ross noted that See POOLS, page 6

BY KAREN BILLING STAFF WRITER Imagine a movie theater where, as you’re reclining in a leather chair to catch the last “Harry Potter” movie, you can order up sushi or chocolate-covered popcorn at the press of button. That unique, elevated movie-going experience is here now in Carmel Valley with Del Mar Highlands’ new Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas, opening this Friday, July 22. Close to $7 million was plugged into the former UltraStar Cinema to bring it up to the luxury level, a new concept for the United States from Cinepolis, a Mexican theater chain. “We’re here to become part of the community,” said Carlos Wellman, Cinepolis managing director. “We’re very happy to start a new team and adventure out here.” “We hope the community really embraces it,” echoed Cinepolis partner Adolfo Fastlicht, who noted that the new theater created more than 70 jobs. Cinepolis opened its first theater in Mexico in 1947 and has since become the largest movie chain in Latin America and fourth largest in the world. Cinepolis developed its“VIP” luxury experience in 1999 and has ventured into several South American countries and India, but San Diego is its first American presence. They have plans to open seven more theaters in the Southern California region, including the former UltraStar La Costa in Carlsbad, Laguna Niguel and Irvine. Fastlicht said they aim to grow into Northern California and then become a nationwide chain. Cinepolis’ difference is noticed right away in the theater lobby, which features floor to ceiling windows, glossy wood floors, and a cluster of cozy, stylish couches and tables to grab a bite from the gourmet concession stand where champagne is chilling and decadent desserts are on display. Cinepolis is the only movie theater in San Diego to have a full bar, which serves wine, beer, champagne and signature cocktails such as a Skinny Margarita or Cool as A Cucumber, with vodka, fresh cucumber and a splash of agave nectar.

Garage sale to be held to raise awareness, assist dog attack victims

Bill passes, helps Del Mar’s Surfside Race Place take more wagers on out-of-state racing

BY KAREN BILLING STAFF WRITER A dangerous dog lives in the Pacific Highlands Ranch neighborhood, according to area resident Jodie Moore, and residents are holding a garage sale on July 23 to raise awareness, as well as funds for one of the dog’s recent victims. Under county law it takes two bites within a four-year period before a dog is declared “dangerous” and is given restrictions. The pitbull in question has attacked two humans and neighbor Moore’s dog, Moore said. On June 23, the Moore family was inside their home when they heard someone being attacked by a dog. Moore’s husband ran outside to help and their family dog slipped out the door behind him, Moore said. The pitbull was attacking their neighbor

Del Mar’s Surfside Race Place will be able to take wagers on, and show more live, out-of-state horse races after a bill by Assemblyman Martin Garrick, R-Solana Beach, was signed into law July 15. Off-site wagering facilities at race tracks and fairs had been limited to showing 32 out-of-state races per day, but that number will be increased to 50 by the bill, which was signed by Gov. Jerry Brown. Wellknown races like the Kentucky Derby do not count against the limit. The bill, which sailed through the Legislature without opposition, was designed to

but immediately let go of the man to chase after and attack the Moore’s dog. The pitbull was not on a leash, having escaped from its owner’s home. The attacked man had bite marks to his chest and elbow, Moore said. Per the county and homeowner association rules, the dog needs to wear a muzzle as well as be on a leash, but Jodie Moore said accidents do happen. She now has a $5,000 veterinarian bill but the pitbill owner refuses to pay because the owner alleges that her dog was injured, too, and that it was an accident that the dog got out. “I just want to bring awareness to the Airoso community that there is a dangerous dog living among us,” Moore said. The garage sale will be held on Saturday, July 23, from 7-11 a.m. in the Airoso community off East Village Center Loop Road, past Canyon Crest Academy.

Work to repair flooded onramp to begin in September Work to repair a chronically flooded onramp to northbound Interstate 5 at Carmel Mountain Road is expected to begin in September, and take four to six weeks to complete. Janie Hoover, an aide to District 1 Councilwoman Sherri Lightner, updated the Torrey Hills Community Planning Board on the project at its meeting on Tuesday, July 19. Hoover said the council appropriated funding for the project on June 7, and the next step is for the city to award a contract for the work. A storm drain near the onramp was damaged during last winter’s storms, causing the onramp to flood – and be closed to traffic – during rainstorms. — Joe Tash

stabilize business at the tracks, which have suffered declining attendance because of the weak economy. The tracks have become more dependent on their satellite wagering offerings to make ends meet, according to a legislative analysis. Also, since tracks can show more events from outside the state, similar facilities elsewhere would be more likely to reciprocate by airing California races, which would also increase revenue. As an emergency measure, the change will take effect immediately. — City News Service

DM Mesa should stay in District One, planning board agrees The Del Mar Mesa Community Planning Board voted unanimously July 14 to send a letter to the city’s 2010 redistricting commission emphatically stating the redistricting process (to create a 9th district) must keep the Del Mar Mesa community planning area boundaries within District One. Chair Gary Levitt said the board should also send a separate letter approving the coastal plan (including La Jolla), “which keeps our community intact.” District One includes Carmel Valley, Del Mar Mesa, Pacific Highlands Ranch, Torrey Hills, Rancho Penasquitos, and La Jolla,

among other areas. The board opposed the recent suggested plan to “chop up” Carmel Valley, leaving out Neighborhoods 10, 6 and 8. Board member Allen Kashani also suggested the Carmel Valley, Del Mar Mesa, and Torrey Hills neighborhoods be treated as one, since they are “sister communities.” Public testimony will be held over the next few weeks; a preliminary plan and map will be drawn up; more public hearings will be held, then a post-map will be drawn. There will be a final wrap-up before the Sept. 15 deadline. — Suzanne Evans

Carmel Valley

CV resident creates invaluable memoirs for families, companies BY KAREN BILLING Staff Writer Carmel Valley resident Sid Shapira is in the business of preserving memories. With his new venture, “Stories Be Told,” Shapira helps people create their memoirs, full of irreplaceable and priceless stories and photos. The end result is a “most treasured gift” to families and future generations. “It’s something that’s really important, something I wished I’d done

with my parents before they passed away,” Shapira said. “These stories, once the person leaves, they’re gone.” A native of Canada, Shapira studied journalism at Ryerson University in Toronto and got a job working as reporter for the Globe and Mail newspaper. He moved into public relations and corporate marketing communications— work he still does as a consultant—but he never lost his affinity for being a sto-

ryteller. “I always had a great passion for writing and loved doing human interest stories and profile pieces,” Shapira said. Shortly after he moved to San Diego in 1991, he was commissioned to coauthor an autobiography of Time Inc. executive Jack Leonard for his four children. Shapira had a great experience recounting Leonard’s fascinating stories about being friends with Olympian Jesse Ow-

ens and comedian Lou Costello. Several years passed but Shapira always had the idea in the back of his mind to tell people’s stories. He started Stories Be Told this year and has already completed several books. Shapira’s comprehensive interview takes a few hours as people lead him through their childhood to present day. People talk about their families, their neighborhood, their hobbies, careers and passions. Sometimes the interviews can get very emotional, he said, as people remember family members lost. He said while those stories are difficult to get through, it can sometimes be cathartic for people to have a chance to talk it out. Each book ends with “Words of Wisdom,” advice on life from the subject to their family. Shapira works with a designer on the East Coast to create the bound books, stylishly laid out with chapters and photos. Cus-

tomers get to review the copy before it’s printed and the whole process takes about six-eight weeks depending on the complexity of the story. Books have ranged between 50 and 150 pages. “It comes out really nice, like a coffee table book that they can really cherish and share with their family,” Shapira said. Shapira said his favorite stories are usually about the kids—one of his clients told a story about how her daughter wrote a

book report on Pablo Picasso based off a book on the family mantle called “Viva Picasso.” The woman decided to take a look at the report before she went to school and the first line of the report read “Viva was born in…” The funny story sprang to the woman’s mind years later when she was working at a theater in Minnesota and met Picasso’s daughter—she was able to share the memory with “Viva’s” daughter. “There’s some real gems that come out,” Shapira said. “It’s something that’s really fun to do and it’s so rewarding.” Shapira is also available to do corporate histories to enable companies to document their stories and history, as well. Shapira can also conduct out-ofstate interviews via telephone. For more information, visit storiesbetold. com or call (858) 9268695.

TORREY continued from page 1 much more in common with the coastal communities,” said planning board member Guy Ravad. Previously, the Torrey Hills planning board had endorsed the so-called Coast and Canyons plan, which maintains most of the current Council District 1, except for Rancho Peñasquitos. The plan, which was drafted by La Jolla Planning Association member and land use consultant Joe LaCava, also reunites La Jolla and University City, which had previously been divided between council districts. In an interview before the meeting, Burton suggested that redistricting commissioners had proposed shifting Torrey Hills to different council districts to help balance the district populations. One of the key goals of redistricting is to redraw the boundaries so that each district has a population of about 145,000 residents, she said. “Some commissioners were thinking of Torrey Hills as this little numbers

chip… it would be negligent of us not to address that formally and create a record,” which is why she proposed sending a letter to the commission, Burton said. At Tuesday’s meeting, planning board member Rob Mullally suggested that if Neighborhood 10, which is currently within the Carmel Valley planning area, were moved to Torrey Hills, the community would have more clout. “Part of the reason we’re getting bounced around like this is we don’t have critical mass,” said Mullally. Burton said the letter will spell out reasons why planning board members believe Torrey Hills belongs in District 1. Among them, she said, is that Torrey Hills shares community facilities, from police and fire stations to community centers and roads, with its coastal neighbors. The communities also share common school districts, she said. “We’re inextricably linked to Carmel Valley,” she said. When a friend heard about the suggestion that Torrey Hills be moved into a district that includes

continued from page 1

Rhodes Crossing, a “heavily suburbanized” development, (near a vernal pool site, where development is usually restricted, covering 102 acres southwest of the intersection of SR-56 and Carmel Mountain Road), is adjacent to the Del Mar Mesa open space area. Its heavy density detracts from the intended “rural nature” of Del Mar Mesa, and “is not compatible with an atmosphere of habitat preservation,” Ross said. Board member Allen Kashani suggested, however, the board “zoom out” a little to consider the adjacent Shaw Lorenz development, slated to include 5,000 houses at build-out, and residents active with hiking, bikes and horses. The city also needs the board to approve the community plan amendment, with map and text changes, presented by senior city planner Bernie Turgeon. Turgeon showed the board changes he made within the existing framework, focusing on trails following existing roads, as well as trails through open space, such as multi-use, equestrian/bike, and hike/bike trails. He then elaborated on trail descriptions. “I just refined your plan,” Turgeon said.

“We are going to require plan amendments for new trails through Del Mar Mesa,” Turgeon said. Ross feared the board’s giving only conditional approval on the trails plan (subject to the east-west connector being provided) could mean that later on, the east-west connector request would disappear altogether in the final plan. Some members urged the board to keep an open mind on changes. “We want flexibility to change the east-west connector because we don’t know where it’s going to be located,” Levitt said. Turgeon said he will take his map revisions to the Parks and Recreation department and although it could take a few years to get a trails permit, Turgeon advised the board make its final decision within the next two months. A board subcommittee will meet in August to discuss the trails community plan amendment. After all the affected community planning boards weigh in, the Los Penasquitos Canyon Citizens Advisory Committee, which meets Sept. 21, will also give its recommendation, with the San Diego City Council making its final decision.

Rancho Bernardo, the woman said “We don’t even share the same weather!” Burton recalled. LaCava said the commission was set to release a preliminary map of redrawn council districts this week, and the final map will be adopted in late August. The Coast and Canyons plan, he said, recognizes a region bound by orientation to the coast, large swaths of open space and protected canyons, and proximity to UCSD and the adjacent biotech and hightech hub. Based on comments made by commissioners, LaCava said, “We have a high degree of confidence the Coast and Canyons Plan will become the new District 1,” and that it will include Torrey Hills. But he said the next few weeks are critical to the final outcome. “You can never relax. This is the time to be really diligent, because something could pop up,” he said. Also at Tuesday’s meeting, Mullally announced he is stepping down from the planning board because he is moving away from Torrey Hills.

Fairbanks Riding Club completes big renovation BY KAREN BILLING STAFF WRITER Fairbanks Riding Club recently completed the biggest renovation in the club’s 27-year history, completely redoing its barn. A somewhat hidden secret within the Fairbanks Ranch community, the boarding facility, which is open to non-Fairbanks Ranch residents, prides itself on being a welcoming, family-friendly place. “We want everybody here to feel really comfortable, whether they The renovated barn at the Fairbanks Riding Club are pleasure riders, competition riders, boarding a horse or just taking lessons,” said Susan Ellner, club president since December 2010. Currently, the club is home to 44 horses with 12 openings in its brand new barn. The club’s big remodel began in March, demolishing the old barn in four days. Tammy Pillette, MD Barnmaster of Southern California, and Randy Baker’s Baker Quality Construction put in new stalls by MD Barns and removed one stall to create a breezeway to help keep the barn cool and ventilated. The stalls feature a unique yoke-style guard instead of doors to allow horses to hang their heads into the aisle of the barn, as well as 10-inch concrete curbs, a new trend in the industry that prevents rusting at the bottom and promotes a longer life for stall walls. They kept some charming fixtures from their old barn, but updated the watering system and added grills between most stalls to allow horses to socialize. The club now has 36 stalls and 20 outside corrals with cover. They have three arenas, including a mirrored dressage court, three turnouts, a European walker, full groom and care service and hand grazing. As the club is within a gated community, the location is very secure and they also have a resident nightwatch. The club has trail access to the San Dieguito Riverbed and a trail through tree-lined Fairbanks Ranch, including a loop around the community’s lake, home to a few resident swans. “The trail is absolutely gorgeous, you couldn’t find a more beautiful trail,” said recent past-president Cauleen Glass, who frequently takes advantage of the trail with her boarding horses. “What we sell here is just a really lush, park-like setting. It’s very peaceful and serene,” agreed Ellner. “Time stops here.” In addition to peaceful riding, the club also offers quality instruction. Lena Nordlof-Davis, a USDF (United States Dressage Federation) gold, silver and bronze medalist, handles dressage training and care, and new addition Kelli Di Gioia-Bautista brings her championship experience in hunter jumper training. Summer Pony Camp is now running with daily riding and bathing of ponies, arts and crafts, and nature hikes. For more information, contact instructor Sarah Powell at (858) 449-3317. The club is also hosting a dressage clinic on Aug. 9 and 10 with Olympian Charlotte Bredahl-Baker. To register, call Lena Nordolf-Davis at (760) 822-7483.

Three Carmel Valley residents earn prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award Girl Scouts San Diego hailed the leadership and community service achievements of 57 local Girl Scouts at its recent annual Gold Award ceremony at the Joe and Vi Jacobs Center. The recipients included three Carmel Valley residents. Kate McBride helped Philippine orphanages educate and improve the lives of children through her Gold Award project, “For the Love of Literature.” Kate collected and shipped thousands of children’s books to orphanage in the Philippines. Along with the books, she sent letters and decorative bookmarks she crafted with children from her church. Kate, whose parents are Doug and Janeen McBride, was been a Girl Scout for 12 years. She graduated from Torrey Pines High School this year, and will attend the University of Southern California in the fall. Honoree Jordan Moore’s Gold Award project, “Inclusion Made Easy: How to Bring Everyone to the Table,” promoted inclusive environments in high schools. She created a resource guide and website targeting student leaders, clubs, government bodies and faculty, and disseminated the information to 38 schools, potentially reaching more than 67,000 people. Jordan is the daughter of Sidnie Moore, and is a 2011 graduate of Cathedral Catholic High School who will study environ-

mental studies and pre-law at Yale University. A member of Troop 8409, Katie started Girl Scouting as a Brownie 13 years ago. Katie Twyman –through her Gold Award project – “Increasing Childhood Obesity Kate McBride Awareness” – taught students in grades 4-6 about the importance of eating well-balanced meals and staying active. She also ran a basketball skills clinic. She was a member of Girl Scout Troop 1461 for 13 years, and recently became a lifetime member. A 2011 graduate of Canyon Crest Academy, she is set to attend the University of California Davis, majoring in environmental science. Katie’s parJordan Moore ents are Amy Seki

and Mike Twyman. The Girl Scout Gold Award – Girl Scouting’s highest honor – recognizes the leadership, effort, and positive impact girls in grades 9-12 have on their communities. Each recipient spends two to Katie Twyman three years completing a seven-step process that includes exploring career interests, colleges, internships and jobs. It culminates when the girl plans, executes and evaluates a major service project based on a personal passion that addresses the needs of a specific community. “As I shook the hands of the awardees, I marveled over how they poured their hearts, time and talents into their projects, said Girl Scouts San Diego CEO Jo Dee C. Jacob, who presented the awards. “These amazing leaders-in-the-making joined the elite 5.4 percent

Gregson Foundation recently announced that it will host a charity fundraising dinner honoring Oak Tree Racing Association for its distinguished role in the success of the California thoroughbred horse racing industry and for its countless charitable contributions to those in need. This dinner will serve as the 11th fund-raising event for the Edwin J. Gregson Foundation, the proceeds of which will be used for continued development of various educational pro-

grams to benefit California’s backstretch workers and their families. These programs, such as scholarship grants, computer literacy classes, ongoing English as a Second Language courses, as well as various recreational activities, were part of late thoroughbred horse trainer Eddie Gregson’s vision in helping individuals improve their standard of living and achieve excellence in their lives. Gregson is the famed trainer of Gate del Sol, winner of the Kentucky Derby in 1982.

The members of the Oak Tree Board of Directors will be feted at The Grand Del Mar in San Diego. The dinner will take place on Monday, Aug. 8, and tickets for the event are $250 per person. This annual event has proven to sell out each year, and the Edwin J. Gregson Foundation encourages early purchase of tickets to assure attendance.

Martin Katz introduces ‘The Divine Collection’ Martin Katz, renowned for exquisite taste and an unparalleled eye for sculpting beautiful stones into artistic creations, introduces “The Divine Collection.” This collection of hand-sculpted pieces evoke an impression of endless gems enhanced by unique concave settings, circular shapes and varying size diamonds laid in random patterns. This technique is a creative new perspective to the large stone cocktail rings; it encompasses a look that is whimsical and avant-garde. “I’ve always had a fascination with geometric shapes; however, the infinite nature of the circle stands out among the rest,” remarks Katz. “The soft suggestive curves are symbolic of timeless beauty, divine in nature.” The Emerald Ring is 24 MM set with 34 emeralds weighing 1.66 CTS and 388 diamonds weighing 1.80 CTS.

CV woman turns 110 BY KAREN BILLING Staff Writer Ruby Clawson has lived long enough to see the inventions of color photography, the motion talking picture, TV, FM radio, computers and the Internet— now smart phones can perform all those functions from one small hand-held device. After turning 110 years old on July 15, Ruby has surely seen some amazing things, but her favorite is still stopping to smell the roses. She received 110 of them for her birthday and smiled when told the flowers would go to decorate her room in Carmel Valley’s Emeritus. Clawson has lived in Emeritus since she moved out of her Solana Beach home at 103 years old. Ruby said she was happy and when asked if she knew it was her birthday she nodded and said, “There’s been so many.” Born Ruby Robinson in Rogers, Ark., in 1901, Ruby’s mother died when she was just 13 years old. She was raised by one of her two older sisters (who lived into their 90s). At 22, Ruby was crowned the queen of the Arkansas Apple Blossom Festival and at 24 she married Cecil Clawson, whom she met while working at an insurance company. The couple never had children but their marriage lasted five decades until Cecil’s death in 1975. They lived in Missouri and Arizona before moving to Solana Beach in the 1970s. Emeritus celebrated Ruby with a party on July 15; residents filled a room for snacks, cake and live musical entertainment. Ruby sat at the front of the room dressed in pink with a flower pinned

She didn’t eat too much cake to save room for her birthday dinner of favorites: fried chicken, cornbread and apple pie. According to her close friend and trustee Edie Harrison, Ruby walked until she was 106 but after being frightened by a fall, she now moves around in a wheelchair — on her birthday her feet were in fuzzy white slippers propped up on a pillow. Living at Emeritus, Ruby enjoys doing her exercises in her wheelchair and while her diminishing sight hasn’t allowed her to continue working on crossword puzzles she

still likes to be read the clues and come up with the answers. She enjoys all the music and activities that Emeritus offers but sometimes prefers to stay in bed. “At 110, you do what you want to do,” Harrison said. A big Lakers and Padres fan, she likes catching the games and very much enjoyed watching this summer’s royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. “She’s a joy,” remarked Carol Pisnieski, Emeritus’ life enrichment director. “110 years old…it’s unbelievable.”

Winning Del Mar Little League team members share special memories at 20-year reunion BY KAREN BILLING STAFF BOX Twenty summers ago they were just boys playing baseball. Not yet 13, before high school, before girls, this was their last summer to just be pure boys, playing for the love of the game and for each other. Howard Anderson, a Del Mar architect and manager of the 1991 Del Mar Little League All Stars that made a run at the Little League World Series, organized a 20-year reunion for the weekend of July 15. Standing taller on the Del Mar Heights school field, the men recreated the experience of their “Sandlot” youth— lunching on the In n’ Out burgers they always celebrated wins with, playing catch with their old warm-up partners, the familiar cadence of taking infield: “Jory, get two,” followed by the crack of a fungo bat. An impressive 11 of 13 boys showed up to relive that All Star summer—the only players unable to attend were Adam Johnson who lives in Florida and Dan Mallott who is now a professor at the University of North Dakota. Players on that ’91 squad who attended included Ryan “Ryno” Anderson; Michael Eaton, Shane “Finns” Finnerty; Tommy “The Vacuum” Hays; James “Hokey” Hochleutner; Pe(Top) The Del Mar Little League All Stars players in 1991 and today (bottom) at the ter “Mr. Clutch” Huffman; Trevreunion.

Looking Wonderful is a Great Thing, Feeling Wonderful is Everything!™

Sanudo is a golf professional, working at the Carlsbad Golf Center. Boyd received a soccer scholarship to Boston College and played professional soccer for two years in Holland and Germany. He still remembers hitting a homer off his former teammate Johnson in a high school game as a freshman. “Sorry AJ!” Huffman works at Merrill Lynch in San Diego and with the Clinton Foundation set up AIDS treatment locations in Africa. Hochleutner came in all the way from New York, where he works as an equities trader. He made it to the Division 3 College World Series with Emory University. Finnerty lives in Oceanside and works as a key account manager for Boyd Coffee Company. Whan is a head production accountant at Sony Pictures, last working on the movie “Country Strong.” Hays runs his own produce business called SoCal Citrus. Wolf came to the reunion with his 10-week old son in tow, he now lives in San Diego and runs a financial company. Ryan Anderson is freshly married, living in Texas and, like his father, earned a master’s in architecture. He now runs a design and fabrication firm in Austin, Texas. “(The coaches) taught us so many things. Among them how to be gracious winners, how to be gracious losers, how to give our all no matter what the situation, and how to be a good teammate,” Ryan Anderson said. “These values have served us well since then. It was a great group of kids then and an amazing group of adults now.” Eaton also learned from his architect coaches. “It helped me see that there can be a balance in being involved in sports and the arts at the same time,” he said. Now Eaton runs his own multi-media creative firm, and as a fashion photographer and director specializes in music videos and commercials. He lives in Del Mar. “I’m so proud of all of them,” Howard Anderson said. “(Their success) doesn’t surprise me because they were really smart, hard-working kids.” Reunion weekend began with a welcome party at Anderson’s Del Mar office, with memorabilia from their season up on the wall. They watched videos of their games and laughed, reminiscing on the old days, like riding to games in the back of the Anderson VW van, debating whether or not spilled water stained carpet. “They fell back to being 12 years old,” said Hayer, who was about the age the men are now when he was their coach at 34. Did they recognize each other? Hayer said it was easy, it all came back to him when he See TEAM, page 14

THEATER continued from page 1

Above and at right are interior shots of the new theater at Del Mar Highlands and its cheerful employees. Photos/Jon Clark

Alcohol is only allowed in theaters one and two and Cinepolis will be very strict about those two theaters, general manager Antonio Garcia said. Identification will be required to purchase tickets to movies in those two theaters and any time the patron enters and exits. Moviegoers over 21 can also only imbibe two drinks maximum. Unlike most movie theaters, there are no ticket windows. Instead, there is a concierge desk where moviegoers can select their own reserved seat when they buy the ticket. “I honestly believe there is no bad seat in the house,” Garcia said. For people who purchased tickets online or if there is a line, they can use an adjacent ticket station to pick up tickets, as well. An upstairs lobby area features bathroom lounges and an art gallery with local artists’ works on display and for sale. Cinepolis’ eight auditoriums feature 65 seats each, “The most state-of-the-art, beautiful cinemas in the U.S.,” Garcia said proudly. Patrons relax in seven-foot leather reclining chairs with tables in between each and an adjustable table that can go over the lap. Once seated, there is a button to summon service and a menu with an LED light built in so you can see what you’re selecting. The menu includes items such as Angus beef sliders, flat bread pizza, wraps, coconut shrimp and quesadillas. They also have standard movie fare like candy and popcorn, but the popcorn comes in six different flavors: butter, caramel, spicy chili, cheddar cheese, cinnamon roll and zebra (black and white chocolate covered) and is served in a footed cone bowl. Garcia said people have expressed concerns that the service will be interruptive to watching the movie, but he said most people order during the first 15 minutes of previews. After that, service is sporadic and servers are dressed in black and will slip quickly in and out, kneeling to take orders and deliver food. Ticket prices are slightly more expensive than standard theaters at $14-18. To learn more, visit cinepolisusa.com.

TEAM continued from page 11 saw their childlike smiles. “I haven’t seen most of these guys in 15 years but everyone’s pretty much the same,” Eaton said. After Friday night’s get-together they spent Saturday on the field at Del Mar Heights, followed by a barbecue and a golf outing on Sunday. That 1991 championship team has ended up being the most successful in Del Mar Little League history. In the Coast South Area tournament they smoked their Rancho Santa Fe rivals 15-0. They blew through Encinitas and Vista to reach the District 31 tournament where they beat Temecula in the championship game 8-1 to get to sectionals. Eaton hit a home run shot against Temecula, with Anderson noting: “His home run trot was very

slow.” “We were always the underdogs,” Eaton said, recalling an old to-do list pinned to the board in Anderson’s office that read: “Jackets…no sponsor… tried.” Their wins were “magical,” Howard Anderson said, coming on late-inning heroics. Their team goal was to never give up. “Throughout the summer I learned that nothing was over until it was over. I learned as long as we had at bats left, we had a chance,” said Hochleutner. “That summer gave me the confidence that with hard work, persistence, determination, faith and a little luck, great things can happen.” Johnson was Anderson’s “Mr. July” and much like Mr. October Reggie Jackson, he led the team in hits (20), RBI’s (27) and homeruns (6) and batted a dangerous .455. Sectionals were played in Imperial Beach and the men remembered how Mr.

July “hit a homerun into Mexico.” The team fell just short of making it to the Little League World Series, losing to El Cajon 6-2. While Anderson had new All Star caps made up for the entire team for the reunion, Hoffman showed up to Del Mar Heights on Saturday afternoon wearing his faded original that no longer fit his head. Huffman said he hadn’t thrown a ball in maybe 15 years, “I’ll probably pull a hammy,” he told his old friends. No hammies were pulled in the making of this reunion— playing right field, Huffman fielded the ball with an exaggerated crow hop. The men recreated their intimidating pre-game warm-up—infielders throwing to first and then rushing to snatch a dribbler thrown by catcher Anderson and toss it on the run back to first. The team swang the bat with equal ease, hits

sailing into outfield where the men shagged balls in between catching up. During batting practice, Hays ripped a home run ball that carried over the outfield and the playground, smacking the wall of one of the portable classrooms. His old teammates cheered. Anderson watched it all from behind home plate. His wife Barbara said she was worried at first when Anderson set out to plan the reunion. She worried he’d be disappointed, that the boys wouldn’t come or that maybe it wouldn’t have meant as much to them as it did to him. But as responses trickled in, it became clear that it had. “Best summer of my childhood,” Eaton said. Plans are already underway for a 25th anniversary, another summer weekend looking back when they were still boys.

‘Saving America’s Mustangs’ a driving passion for philanthropist BY JOE TASH CONTRIBUTOR As a child growing up in Iraq, Madeleine Pickens watched American Western movies and dreamed of immigrating to the United States. Among the images of the Wild West spirit that etched into her memory was that of mustangs roaming on the prairie. Later, as an adult, Pickens learned of the plight of wild horses in the modern American West – rounded up and confined to government corrals, or even sent to the slaughterhouse. “The idea of them running free and being gathered up by helicopters in such a traumatic style, being disposed of or warehoused by the government was such a sad thing for me,” said Pickens, a businesswoman and philanthropist, and wife of Texas billionaire T. Boone Pickens. “So I got involved.” Pickens, who owns the Del Mar Country Club, founded Saving America’s Mustangs, a nonprofit foundation. So far, she has purchased two ranches in northeast Nevada totaling more than 18,000 acres, and she wants to use that land, along with some 600,000 acres of federal land surrounding her property, to create a preserve for wild horses. As part of her efforts to bring attention to her cause, the foundation has created a video appeal to Oprah Winfrey, and she shows off a group of mustangs she rescued at public events, from the Rose Parade to college football games. Her mustangs marched at the Del Mar Racetrack on Wednesday, July 20, as part of opening day

festivities for this year’s race meet. According to Pickens, the situation is urgent – a century ago, she said, some 2 million wild mustangs roamed the west. Today, only about 28,000 survive. “To me, that’s pretty close to extinction.” Pickens’ plan, which has the support of a number of celebrities, including her husband, is for her foundation to manage thousands of mustangs on the Nevada preserve on behalf of the federal Bureau of Land Management. Pickens said she could save the government millions of dollars in annual costs, and allow the mustangs to flourish. This summer, she brought 500 mustangs to her ranch that she rescued from being sent to a slaughterhouse, where they have now been released. Eventually, she would like to establish the Mustang Monument, a sanctuary that would also become an attraction for American and foreign tourists to experience a taste of the Wild West. She envisions an eco-preserve where people could camp out overnight, see mustangs in the wild, and even get a taste of covered wagons and other staples of the days of cowboys and Indians. “We have a sexy history and I want to capture this,” she said. The ranch has been transferred to the foundation’s ownership, she said, and all proceeds from the operation will go back into furthering the nonprofit’s goals. While her plan has drawn the ire of cattle ranchers who want to continue allowing their herds to graze the federal lands, as they have for decades, others in northeast Nevada support her plan because of its potential for generating tourism dollars, according

Madeleine Pickens (right) at her eco sanctuary that she is developing in Nevada for wild horses. She just released Paiute horses that she saved from slaughter last December and these photos were taken after the horses were released onto the open range again. Photos/Jon Collins.

to a December report in the Wall Street Journal. Pickens said she has invested a sizeable sum of her own money into the foundation, but declined to discuss specific numbers. “This is my passion,” she said. In April, Pickens testified before members of the House Interior Appropriations Committee, urging them to support the creation of an eco-preserve for wild mustangs. Her foundation has also held galas, organized letter-writing campaigns and used public appearances — such as bringing the horses to opening day at the Del Mar racetrack — to get the word out. Pickens said those who are interested in supporting the plan can log on to the foundation’s website at www.savingamericasmus-

tangs.org, to register to receive updates and find out how they can become involved. The campaign has made a difference, she said, and has caught the attention of officials at the federal Bureau of Land Management, which oversees the public lands where Pickens wants to establish the refuge for wild horses. “It’s time for a change,” she said, both in the way wild horses are treated, and in the mentality of cattlemen and ranchers who don’t want to provide roaming land for the mustangs. “All we are saying is leave the horses alone, and they can’t handle that,” she said.

It is not 1849 but children at Bright Horizons Del Mar pre-school and kindergarten struck gold recently. The young miners panned for gold along the Bright Horizons River at the school’s annual summer faire. Word of the strike spread around Carmel Valley and about 250 folks seeking their fortune showed up at the event. Besides the gold there was food at the watering hole, storytelling, cow milking, and cattle roping. One miner, age 4, described the event as being, “It’s everything fun, I love the horseys.� A certain highlight was pony rides with Cupcake and Snow White as all the children gathered to ride, lead, and give hugs to these fine creatures.

Evidence does not support Clanton’s claims In a recent article, Gordon Clanton offered his insights on what he claimed were the differences between Democrats and Republicans. Upon closer scrutiny, however, the evidence does not support Mr. Clanton’s superficial claims. Consider the following: 1. Mr. Clanton’s Claim. Democrats favor progressive taxation. Republicans favor huge tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. Facts. Democrats support taxation of every kind, including property taxes, sales taxes, car taxes, fuel taxes, energy taxes, environmental taxes, and the hundreds of other taxes and fees paid by the average person. These taxes are uniformly regressive taxes, requiring a greater percentage of income from those least able to afford it. Social Security and Medicare taxes are two of the country’s most regressive taxes. As for Republicans supporting “huge tax cuts” for wealthier Americans, that statement misrepresents the Republican position. Republicans supported tax cuts for all Americans. Republicans opposed tax increases on the wealthiest Americans

because such tax increases are proven job killers. When jobs are killed, those least able to afford it suffer the most. 2. Mr. Clainton’s Claim. Democrats support Social Security, Medicare and national health insurance. Republicans want to repeal these programs. Facts. If the Democrats truly supported Social Security and Medicare, then why are those two trust funds bankrupt? Where are the hundreds of thousands of dollars that I personally paid into the system? Where are the billions of dollars millions of Americans paid into the system? Democrats spent it. To be fair, Republicans helped the Democrats to spend it, but nevertheless, it is ludicrous to state that Democrats support Social Security and Medicare when they bankrupted both programs. As for national health care, the country is more than $14 trillion in debt, and Social Security and Medicare are bankrupt. Perhaps the Democrats can explain how to pay for Obamacare when they can’t even pay for the other programs. Republicans have

called for the repeal of socialized medicine and for reforms (not repeal) of Social Security and Medicare that are more in line with the country’s ability to pay. Even Mr. Obama is calling for $4 trillion in cuts. 3. Mr. Clanton’s Claim. Democrats are pro-labor. Republicans are anti-union. Facts. This statement is true if by “pro-labor” Mr. Clanton means “pro labor union.” The labor unions, which represent less than 15 percent of all workers, have the Democrats in their collective union pockets. That is why the State of California and virtually every city and county in California is burdened with billions of unfunded, guaranteed, lifetime pensions for public employees. There is nothing “pro labor” for the other 85 percent of the work force whose taxes are raised and services cut to pay for these union pensions. 4. Mr. Clanton’s Claim. Democrats are pro-choice. Republicans want to outlaw abortion and stem cell research. Facts. Many Democrats do not support abortion on demand, partial

birth abortion, or creating human embryos for the purpose of destroying them in the name of science. As technology is increasingly able to visually demonstrate the humanity of the developing baby in the womb, people from all persuasions are questioning the morality and the ethics of 90 percent of the abortions that are done for convenience, and, in many cases, paid for by public tax dollars. Republicans support stem cell research, particularly research based upon adult stem cells where virtually all of the breakthrough work is being conducted. Republicans as well as many Democrats oppose the morally and ethically challenged practice of performing stem cell research on human embryos, especially when there are equally beneficial alternatives. While I could go on, I think most readers get the point. However, one final comment is in order. Since Mr. Clanton brought up President Kennedy, it is appropriate to mention his inaugural address where he inspired a nation by telling us: “Let both sides explore

what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.” “And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.” “. . . let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.” Whether one is Democrat, Republican or Independent, we should all be able to agree that this country cannot continue to borrow 40 percent of every dollar it spends. This country cannot continue to pile on annual deficits of $1.5 trillion to add to the $14 trillion national debt. This country cannot continue to steal from our children and grandchildren to pay for a bankrupt system that we cannot afford. Tim Binder Tim Binder practices law in Carmel Valley.

DM pot shop — three strikes, you’re out

Establish an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission for county

In the Carmel Valley News’ story “Judge orders closure of Del Mar Medical Marijuana Dispensary,” I was amused by the marijuana dispensary operator’s statement “I always told them (the City) I’d do anything they wanted me to do.” Unless that means obeying city, state and federal laws. Operating without a City business permit and refusing to pay fines racking up over $25,000, strike one. Operating a for-profit dispensary, despite the State Attorney General guidelines stating “Although medical marijuana dispensaries have been operating in California for years, dispensaries, as such, are not recognized under the law,” strike two. Possessing and selling marijuana, a Schedule 1 narcotic, is in direct violation of the Control Substance Act (CSA) and Federal law, strike three. The fraudulent behavior by this, and many other marijuana dispensaries operators, mirrors the pro pot lobby’s efforts for de facto legalization through the establishment of illegal marijuana dispensaries. Operators of marijuana dispensaries would want us to believe that they are only providing access to the seriously ill, but how can we believe that is the case when they’ve shown to act defiantly against the law? Cities that don’t allow marijuana dispensaries aren’t saying a true caregiver and patient can’t associate together to use marijuana, for this is what Prop. 215 and SB 420 set up. It’s the illegal marijuana storefronts that cities(300-plus now in California) and neighborhoods don’t want. I thank Del Mar for protecting the law against abuse and trying to preserve a healthy and safe environment for all. Anne Reins Del Mar

BY STEVE DANON Every 10 years, following the Federal Census, the County of San Diego is called upon to redistrict the five Supervisorial districts to equalize population. Section 400.1 of the County Charter allows members of the Board of Supervisors to determine their own districts. I read in [a newspaper article recently] that County Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, “support(s) using an independent commission to redraw the county lines.” However, her actions spoke differently when she authored a board letter (proposal) on Dec. 7, 2010 (Item 17) for the Board of Supervisors “to initiated the 2011 redistricting process pursuant to which the Board of Supervisors will evaluate and adjust, as necessary, the boundaries of the five supervisorial districts in San Diego County based on the 2010 federal decennial census data.” California voters authorized the creation of the Citizens Redistricting Commission when they passed the Voters FIRST Act (Proposition 11) in 2008 to remove the politicians from the process of drawing their own districts. Under the Act, the Commission is charged with drawing the boundaries of California’s Congressional, Senate, Assembly and Board of Equalization electoral districts. If the state of California can do it, we certainly ought to be able to do it for San Diego County. I strongly believe that voters should elect their County Supervisors, rather than County Supervisors selecting their voters. County Supervisor Pam-Slater Price had nearly 20 years to reform this process, but chose not to make a difference. We need a true Indepen-

dent Citizens Redistricting Commission for San Diego County. While this will not remove politics completely from the process, it will eliminate the system of elected officials establishing their own districts. Pamela Karlan, Professor of Public Interest Law at Stanford Law School, said, “It used to be that the idea was, once every two [or four] years voters elected their representatives, and now, instead, it’s every 10 years the representatives choose their constituents.” It’s time for that system to end. By creating an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission, we can put an end to the inherent conflict of interest that exists when Supervisors have the power to create districts designed to help them get reelected. If incumbent Pam Slater-Price doesn’t bring forward a proposal to change the redistricting process, and I have the opportunity to represent the residents of the Third Supervisorial District, I plan on bringing forward a proposal to establish an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission to change the process for the next redistricting. To further accountability, transparency and the public trust in local government, I strongly support an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission for the County of San Diego that focuses on population, geography and communities of interest, not on the self-interests of the incumbent Supervisors. Steve Danon is a former member of the board of the San Diego County Taxpayers Association and is a candidate for the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, District 3 in 2012.

Education Matters The end of Harry Potter ... again BY MARSHA SUTTON With the release July 15 of the last Harry Potter movie in J.K. Rowling’s sensational seven-book series, the media are churning the story with self-generated intensity, showcasing despondent Potter fanatics weeping (some literally) over the grand finale. But the end really happened four years ago, when Rowling released her seventh and last Potter Marsha Sutton novel, “The Deathly Hallows,” in July 2007. So we’ve been through this before; to make us forlorn all over again is too much misery to bear – like losing your best friend twice. Yet the books were the thing, not the movies. The films are just icing on the cake, window dressing on an imaginative force whose power came from the printed word, not in the form of three admittedly adorable child stars. People who only saw the movies missed out on what was really going on in Potter-world. Like, the light in our children’s eyes as they read voraciously through the night, unable to stop sometimes until dawn. And the way our kids taught us how to see the magic in the world … again, like it was before we grew up. The way reading can absorb your every waking moment, expand your mind, and transport you to places never before imagined. And, most obviously, the over-riding consideration: how Rowling’s novels elevated children’s ability and interest in reading for pleasure. The one great downside to this reading-for-pleasure business is that it became nearly impossible to replicate kids’ interest in other books after the Potter stories made everything else seem dull. I may have watched Daniel Radcliffe grow up on screen, but I lived and breathed my own children’s transitions from tots to teens, with Harry Potter playing a large role in their lives along the way. I’ll never forget my younger son’s first foray into organized sports, on a local recreational basketball league when

he was six. We don’t play basketball in our family, but he was enamored with the game so we signed him up. While standing in line that first day at practice to take his turn with the ball, he grew bored, grabbed a twig, and turned it into a wand, casting a spell on the kids to move along faster. In that moment, he became a wizard, Harry having given him permission to imagine the world any way he wanted. Sadly, he was mocked by the other boys, who at age six had already lost their capacity for fantasy. Instead of playing games of imagination, they had already bought into the waytoo-adult notion that games are serious and for keeps in the real world and you must excel and be a star to make mommy and daddy proud. To be so good so young, these boys must have been shooting hoops since the day they could walk – aided, no doubt, by hypercompetitive father-figures with dreams of their sons as the next Michael Jordan. But my son was having none of it. He played with his “wand” in that line (which, to be honest, really was moving awfully slow) until the moment he lowered the stick dejectedly and turned to me, tears in his eyes, and said, “Mommy, I think they’re making fun of me.” After I picked up the

pieces of my heart and hugged him tightly, we left that line, never to return. That was the day we dropped basketball and embraced instead every imaginative endeavor we could find, Rowling’s books at the top of the list. Then there was my older son’s insistence, in the summer of 2000, that we run to the bookstore on the day of a big soccer tournament (yes, we did some organized sports after all), to purchase Rowling’s justreleased fourth novel, “The Goblet of Fire.” Between matches, we dashed off and returned to the field, breathless, the book clutched firmly to his chest. And the way the other bug-eyed 10-year-olds clustered around him, just wanting to touch it or hold it, you would have thought he had in his possession the latest and greatest new toy … which in a way he had. Profound influence on adults Besides their effect on children, the Potter books had a profound influence on adults. Bumping those books off the New York Times best-seller list because no other “adult-book” author could compete was a travesty that still to this day angers me. Adults were reading the novels as voraciously as the children were. Remember the many stories of parents and kids fighting to gain custody for a few hours of their family’s one copy of each newly-released novel, sometimes adorned with different-colored bookmarks indicating where each reader had left off? We are privileged to have witnessed the emergence of such spellbinding, everlasting literature, like being alive in the days of Lewis Carroll, Beatrix Potter or A.A. Milne. We can say we were here when Rowling first

brought to life the enduring characters of Harry, Ron, Hermione, Hagrid, Dumbledore and Voldemort. And we can describe the build-up of anticipation as we waited impatiently and excitedly alongside our children for the release of each book. We read the books, loved them, and found a way, however briefly, to summon in their pages some of the lost magic of childhood. Through the creative genius of J.K. Rowling, adults were able to rekindle their sense of wonder at the universe. She reminded many of us of the power of imagination and helped us recapture the idealistic belief that goodness and light can prevail, even in the face of the darkest of evils. Best of all, Harry Potter’s adventures allowed us to connect as a family and share with our kids an enchanting world full of the dreams, fears, joy, laughter, tragedies and triumphs of childhood. The terror of dementors, the exhilarating satisfaction of beating your foe (whether it’s the bully on the playground or the next exam), the spine-tingling mystery of the unknown, and the protective shield of a mother’s undying love, all evoke images and emotions real and powerful for every child. Harry’s stories became a port-key into the lives of our children, through whose eyes we were granted the supreme privilege of viewing a magical, fantastical world of timeless friendship, love and honor. So, yes, we’re sad to see the final movie, but we mourned the end of Harry Potter a long time before now. Marsha Sutton can be reached at: SuttComm@san.rr.com.

‘After the Finish Line’ gives former racehorses a second chance BY KELLEY CARLSON Contributor Scooter Roach was a graded stakes-winning racehorse during a career that spanned nine years. But somehow, the Illinois-bred gelding — who had won nearly $843,000 — descended the ranks and eventually ended up being entered in a low-level claiming race in 2010, catching the attention of the media. Fortunately for Scooter, efforts by his fans and former connections allowed him to be retired soon afterward and brought to the Illinois Equine Humane Center. He is now transitioning into a new career as a jumper. One of the organizations involved in his rescue was After the Finish Line, a nonprofit group started by former Carmel Valley resident Dawn Mellen, that is dedicated to saving, rehabilitating and caring for former racehorses until they are adopted. “I was reading a racing newspaper at the racetrack and saw an ad for a horse rescue organization,� she explained. “I said to myself, ‘Why do horses need to be rescued?’ When I got home,

After the Finish Line founder and President Dawn Mellen with Ciarra, a rescued horse. PHOTO: DAWN MELLEN I visited the rescue’s website. I was shocked to learn what happens to a majority of the horses that were no longer able to race because they were too slow to win or injured. That’s when I became involved in thoroughbred racehorse rescue — 13 years ago. Because I wanted to increase my involvement, I started After the Finish Line in October 2007.�

Since then, the Toluca Lake-based group has been contributing funds to rescue and retirement organizations throughout the country to save horses from slaughter and neglect. These include the United Pegasus Foundation, CANTER of California, Neigh Savers, The Golden Carrot, Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue, TROTT, White Rock Horse Rescue and Heavenly

Horse Haven. “Horses everywhere need our help,� Mellen said. “We don’t discriminate with (them) — we don’t care if they’ve won $7,000 or $700,000 — they all try their best.� United Pegasus Foundation occasionally seeks assistance for the cost of hay from After the Finish Line,

according to United Pegasus founder and President Helen Meredith. “Things are tough (financially),� she said. “It’s good to have a fundraising foundation like (After the Finish Line). They have more time to do the fundraising and create awareness of thoroughbreds off the track.� Meredith said After the Finish Line often donates about $1,000 a couple of times each year to United Pegasus. “Right now, we’re desperate,� she said. “We hope lots of people donate to (After the Finish Line) so they can help more horses.� To aid these organizations, After the Finish Line relies on its own fundraisers and donations. Fifteen events supporting the nonprofit have been planned this year, including several locally. One of them is the fourth annual “A Tribute to the Majesty of Thoroughbreds,� slated from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Aug. 4 at the Hilton San Diego/Del Mar. Actor and voiceover artist Mike Villani will serve as master of ceremonies, while Hall of Fame trainer Jack Van Berg

will return as auctioneer. Horse racing artist Fred Stone will be the guest speaker, and singer Liza G. Fly, known for her song “Zenyatta,� will perform during the silent auction. The event is open to the public. Another fundraiser is the Del Sol Classic Horse Show series, next set for Aug. 17 and 18 at the Del Mar Horsepark. Former racehorses will compete against one another as hunters and jumpers for prize money. Other local events held recently include “Fiesta for the Horses� at En Fuego restaurant in Del Mar and the “Race to Fashion� runway show at Westfield UTC mall. Last year, After the Finish Line raised nearly $100,000, Mellen said, with just over half coming from “Tribute.� The organization donates its proceeds toward auction purchases; to help pay for a horse’s surgery and/or medical expenses; farrier/dental/vet expenses; hay and feed; boarding expenses; and transporting a horse to safety, along with other requests. After the Finish Line will follow up to make sure the horse is receiving the proper care, Mel-

len said. She also emphasized that the money raised goes entirely toward the care of horses — all of the organization’s members are volunteers and none have salaries. “We are here to put a positive spin on a negative situation,� Mellen said. “We’re giving (the horses) a second chance.� For more information about After the Finish Line, or to be an event volunteer, sponsor or donor, go to www.afterthefinishline.org or e-mail dawn@afterthefinishline.org.

Local soccer player exceeds all her own expectations playing in Women’s World Cup BY GIDEON RUBIN CONTRIBUTOR Natalie Vinti has this habit of selling herself short, only to come up big. Vinti didn’t give herself much a chance when she went out for a loaded soccer squad at University City High (before it became Cathedral Catholic) freshman year. She picked University of San Diego ahead of some higher profile programs figuring it was her best chance to get regular playing time at a Div. I college. She never dreamed she’d play organized soccer at any level after hanging up her cleats for the last time at USD. Vinti has exceeded her own expectations at every turn. She instantly became an impact player as a freshman in high school. Then she proved she could have played at any college she wanted to during a stellar USD career. And a lifetime of selling herself short has culminated with her emergence as a world-class soccer star who played Natalie Vinti in this year’s Women’s World Cup in Germany, representing Mexico’s national team. Vinti is among two local players who competed in the World Cup. Torrey Pines High’s Rachel Buehler, who played for Team USA, is the other. “I never thought in a million years that I’d be playing in the World Cup, it was just overwhelming at times,” Vinti said. “An experience like this is kind of hard to describe in words, because of the emotion, the crowd, and seeing my family up there cheering me on in the World Cup. It was just incredible.” Vinti is the first player in her high school program’s distinguished history to appear in a World Cup. And even though she’s played for the Mexican national team for nearly four years, it wasn’t until her role became widely publicized during the World Cup qualifiers earlier this year that many of her friends knew about her status as a world class competitor. “A lot of people would Facebook me when the World Cup qualifiers were going saying ‘I didn’t know you play for Mexico national team…’ ” Vinti said. “My parents like to brag about me, but it’s not something I feel I need to advertise. It’s something I am very proud of, but there’s a fine line between being proud of yourself and being conceited.” Vinti has walked the low-key side of that line throughout her career. “That’s always how she’s been,” said Cathedral Catholic coach Dawn Lee, who coached

WHOLE HOUSE RENOVATIONS

Vinti all four years of her high school career. “She never felt like she was that strong of a player, but she made the varsity as a freshman and was an impact player right from the start.” Vinti was a three-time All-San Diego Section and three-time All-Western League selection at Cathedral Catholic and University City, leading the Dons to three section titles, one runner-up, and four league titles. She was among five four-year Dons starters who instantly became known as the “Fab Five.” All five players went on to play at Div. I colleges after graduating in 2006. She helped lead an unheralded USD program to as high as 11th in the national rankings during her junior year. Vinti went out for the Mexican national team at the prodding of her college coach, Ada Greenwood, who arranged for a tryout when the Mexican national team was playing USC in a spring game. “I didn’t really have any expectations,” Vinti said. “I wanted to make the team

but I didn’t know how hard it was going to be. “I didn’t’ really know what I was getting into, I just thought I was practicing with a few other girls.” The Mexican national coach, Leo Cuellar coaches apparently liked what he saw, asking Vinti after the workout “how quick I could get my citizenship.” Vinti was eligible for citizenship because her mother, Carmen Nuno Vinti, is a Mexican citizen who was born in Guadalajara. “When this opportunity presented itself, I didn’t even give it a second thought, Vinti said. “I was for sure going to do this because it was something I’ve always wanted to do, and to be able to play in the World Cup I feel like all the sacrifices, blood, sweat and tears and missed dances (in high school), it was all worth it.” Vinti played center midfielder most of her high school career and center defender at USD. She now plays outside defender for the Mexican National team. Vinti played in every minute of all three games for Mexico in the World Cup. Her team played England and New Zealand to 1-1 and 2-2 ties, but lost to eventual champion Japan, 4-0. “She was a major factor in her team’s defense being as successful as it was,” Lee said of Vinti. “She held some of the world’s best players without scoring.” But the exciting part for an extended Dons family was hearing Venti’s name mentioned what seemed like every two seconds. “They mentioned her name so many times, it was like ‘Natalie Vinti… Natalie Vinti… Natalie Vinti.’ “It was amazing,” Lee said. “You enjoy that because she’s someone who never expected anything to be handed to her and all these good things are happening to her Everything to her was like ‘This is so cool, this is so amazing, who’d have ever thought?’ so you’re just so happy for someone who never expected anything and worked hard and it always worked out.”

Surf B-U9 Premier team second at SoCal Cup soccer tournament The Surf B-U9 Premier team placed 2nd at the SoCal Cup soccer tournament in Oceanside on July 9-10. The team coached by Gary Condliffe played an incredible tournament with the close championship game against the Carlsbad Lighting ending in 3-3 going into penalty kicks. Coach Condliffe said, “I’m still smiling as I think of how much the team as grown as players over the last couple of weeks. They never gave up believing in each other and their effort in coming back from 3-0 down at the end was one of the most unbelievable things I’ve seen in my soccer coaching career. My team really made the Surf Club and myself proud with their efforts and attitude.”

Q& A

Author helps revive storytelling tradition BY ANTOINETTE KURITZ, Literary publicist, book project manager and the founder of the La Jolla Writers Conference, www.lajollawritersconference.com. Storytelling in the oral tradition is making a comeback in the United States, and spreading the word about it is Mariana Williams. A native Californian whose degree in psychology led to a career in the arts, Williams is a storyteller who was a finalist in the nationally-acclaimed Moth Grand Slam. Having worked after college as a pianist/singer performing in Japan, Morocco, and the U.S., it was while booking comedy that she found the voice that led to writing and storytelling. The author of the Veronica Bennett series, novMariana Williams els of a singer who falls into accidental crime in “Happy New Year, Darling!” and “Stars or Stripes 4th of July,” Williams combines her comedy and writing in “Wince-worthy Tales,” an audio CD of true stories told by the author. Williams also stays busy creating storytelling competitions throughout Southern California, helping revive the storytelling tradition. Willaims says that her second choice of a career as a writer is turning out better than her dream of becoming a ballerina. “Unlike dance, you can write while lying in bed with a bag of chips.” The author lives in a “Southern California beach town” with her Oscar-winning songwriter husband Paul Williams. Her son and daughter have left the nest, and have been (almost) replaced by two calico cats. A recent conversation with Willaims shed some light on writing, on the revival of the art of oral storytelling, and living with the legendary Paul Williams.

Americans are writing. With the advent of e-books, they are writing more than ever before. But to be a good writer demands finding your voice. How difficult was it for you to find yours? My voice was developed by journaling. My life was so crazy at that time that I had to write it down – it was the only release I had. Then I would hide my journal under

Psychologist praises power and effectiveness of subliminal therapy BY ARTHUR LIGHTBOURN Contributor These days, at 85, soon to be 86, local psychologist Edwin Yager, is making it his personal mission to spread the word about the effectiveness of what he considers to be “the treatment of the future” — subliminal therapy. Subliminal therapy, Yager posits, is a technique that permits the patient guided by a therapist to tap into mental abilities that the patient probably doesn’t even know that he or she has [the ‘unconscious’ or ‘higher self’] and then use those abilities to halt the problems that the patient is experiencing as symptoms. “You can get down to the root cause of the problem so you can actually resolve the problem,” he said, “not just wrestle with the symptoms.” Not everyone agrees. Although the theory of the unconscious mind as a repository of forgotten memories has been around for centuries, some professionals still question its scientific validity and even whether the unconscious mind exits at all. Yager, however, says he has employed subliminal therapy in his private practice successfully for the past three decades to treat a wide range of disorders, some strictly mental, such as phobias and compulsions; and others psychogenic, with physical symptoms, such as migraine headaches, insomnia, pain, gastro-intestinal and sexual problems, even asthma. “These often seem to be the consequences of earlier life experiences,” he said. “When you can uncover those experiences and ‘reframe them’ and understand them in a different way, the effect changes and the symptom ceases to be there. “The key, the focus ele-

ment that’s involved here, is teaching people to use abilities they don’t know they have,” he said. In addition to his private practice, Yager, a former engineer-turned-psychologist, is a clinical professor at UCSD School of Medicine, where, since 1975, he has taught an elective course in clinical hypnosis. He holds a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from the Professional School for Psychological Studies, San Diego We interviewed Yager in his office off Balboa Avenue in San Diego’s Mission Bay area. Yager is a tall Texan, who attributes his good health and longevity to three things: “The woman I married, stopping smoking and going to the gym.” Yager was “born in a little town called El Paso, Texas.”

His father was a welder. “But I never knew him very well, he died when I was a little kid.” He was raised by his widowed mom, a school teacher. “That was during the Depression, a time when a lot of people were doing a lot of hurting,” he said. Growing up, Yager discovered he had knack for things technical and mechanical. When he was 12, he landed a job repairing radios. During World War II, when he turned 18, he joined the Navy (1943-45), and served as an electronics technician aboard the light cruiser USS Detroit. “The Navy never sent me to school,” he said. “I learned mostly by osmosis, from other people and just by doing it.” After the war, he studied electrical engineering at Southern Methodist Universi-

ty in Dallas, Texas, began working as an engineer, earned a bachelor’s degree in current technology at Texas State Technical Institute, subsequently moved to San Diego where he worked as a group engineer with Convair for 20 years, retiring in 1973. A pastor at a church that Yager attended in Pacific Beach learned of Yager’s interest in clinical hypnosis and asked him if he would serve as a pastoral counselor to some of the church members — which he did and discovered “This is for me. This is what I wanted to do.” In preparation for his retirement and transitioning eventually to a second career as a psychologist, he earned a master’s degree in counseling in 1972 from United States International University, and another master’s in technical education in 1973 from National University. In 1975, he began teaching an elective course in the clinical applications of hypnosis at the UCSD School of Medicine, initially as an instructor, then as a clinical assistant professor, and, since 2005, as a clinical professor. His work as a clinical hypnotist subsequently led him to become a leading practitioner of subliminal therapy. In 1982, he earned his Ph.D. in counseling psychology from the Professional School for Psychological Studies, San Diego. His mission these days, he said, is to teach therapists from around the globe the subliminal therapy technique. He recently conducted a twoday workshop on “Transcending Traditional Therapy” at the 16th International Conference for the Association of Psychology and Psychiatry in

Open since June 15, the new Drybar does no color, no cuts, just blowouts for a flat rate of $35, wash included, something owner Alli Webb calls “affordable luxury.” The success of the Drybar concept has been head spinning for the Los Angeles-based Webb. In a little over a year since opening the first shop, she now has nine locations in four states with franchise offers pouring in. Coming to San Diego was a no-brainer, Webb said, and Carmel Valley seemed like a perfect fit. “I’m really grateful, the whole experience has been very humbling. We’ve just grown by leaps and bounds and I didn’t see any of it coming,” Webb said. “It’s truly been a whirlwind, I feel lucky, blessed, overwhelmed, ecstatic, you name it,” A hair stylist for more than 15 years, Webb had also worked in fashion and PR before becoming a stayat-home mom to her two sons. Craving a change and

some adult conversation, she started her own business called Straight-at-Home in 2008, making blowout house calls. “Accidentally, the business took off,” Webb said. She got so busy running all over town that she decided it might make more sense to open up a shop, just offering blowouts. With help from her brother Michael Landan and husband Cameron, she opened the first Drybar in Brentwood in February 2010. A full waiting list meant a need for more locations. In six months she opened her second Drybar in Studio City, followed by West Hollywood, Pacific Palisades, Newport Beach, San Francisco, Scottsdale, Ariz., Dallas, a New York City location under construction and San Diego. “I wish I could clone myself,” said Webb of wanting to be at all locations all the time. “We are on target to open 15 stores by the end of the year and continue to roll them out.” Drybar’s concept came out of a kind of necessity. Webb has a naturally curly head of hair and ever since

she was a little girl her mother blew it straight for her. “At a very early age I developed an obsession with getting my hair blown out and straight,” Webb said. She thought for sure that Drybar would appeal mostly to women wanting to tame their curls but she soon discovered that every woman wants what their hair doesn’t do, women with straight hair want curls, and women with flat hair want volume. As such, her target demographic became “women with hair.” The look of Drybar is ultra-modern and chic, feminine but not too girly. The interiors are crisp and cleanly white with splashes of happy yellow. The décor carries all the way into the bathroom—Webb didn’t want it to be an “afterthought,” it is decorated with beautiful textured wallpaper and vintage photos. Blow-out styles are ordered like drinks at the bar: The Straight Up, their signature blowout; The Mai Tai, messy and beachy; Southern Comfort, big hair with lots of volume; Cosmopolitan, loose curls; or the Manhat-

tan, sleek and smooth. For girls under 10, there’s also the Shirley Temple, sweet curls for $24. Up-dos can be done for an additional cost and clients can also add on a Floater, a 10-minute scalp massage during the shampoo. Women sit at the bar for their blowouts and unlike the average salon, there are no mirrors in front of stylist chairs. The unusual set-up is a nod to Webb’s mobile business, where she’d often be doing hair in someone’s kitchen and when finished the woman would run to check out how their hair had turned out. She could hear them gasp and marvel when they saw their look for the first time and wanted a way to recreate that moment: “The big reveal” as she calls it. “Not being in front of a mirror, it becomes more of a social experience. The client doesn’t have the pressure of staring at themselves in the mirror,” Webb said. Complimentary coffee, tea, spa water, wine or champagne is served and women can “zone out,” watching a guilty pleasure chick flick on the flat screen

Alli Webb owns the Drybar hair salon in Del Mar Highlands Town Center. or quite literally recharge— there are iPhone docking stations that have been built into the bar for clients to charge up their phones or listen to music. “It really makes women more confident, that’s the interesting and amazing part of the whole thing,” said Webb, noting that she watches women come in with their hair pulled up in a messy bun or tucked under a hat and then leave with fabulous hair and a certain strut. “You almost don’t recognize them when they walk out…We sell happiness

and confidence, it’s not just a blowout.” Drybar offers monthly memberships and Bartabs, a package of blowouts with savings. The store is open from 8 a.m.-9 p.m., seven days a week, and appointments can be easily booked online at thedrybar.com. For more information call 1-877-DRYBAR-9.

Musical dreams pursued at San Diego ‘American Idol’ auditions

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY SHANNON NAJMABADI Contributor Preliminary auditions for the 11th season of “American Idol” were held in Petco Park on July 7. More than 9,500 hopefuls gathered for the audition, some even camping out in the streets the night before. Many of those auditioning practiced in line, their voices mingling as they simultaneously warmed up and intimidated their competition. Despite the obvious pressure, most hopefuls maintained a positive outlook. “It doesn’t feel like a competition. It feels like a bunch of people who all have the same passion hanging out,” 17-year-old Janai Abel said. Additionally, some merely thought of the competition as a fun experience, a way to network, or a “last hurrah” before turning fulltime to a back-up career. For example, Kate Stadeli is a first year medical student at University of California, San Diego, and Trevor Wyer has six months left in the Marine Corps. “The atmosphere [in line outside Petco Park] is intense. But I’m not ner-

Nicole Hargett vous because I’m here for the experience and to be able to say that I tried…I honestly wasn’t going to come because getting off work is such a hassle, but my supervisor in the Marine Corps encouraged me,” Wyer said. Similarly, Wendy Pendergrass, a local mother, conceded that she had tried out just for the experience,

without seriously considering the consequences of advancing further into the competition. Or, as Jeff Wells succinctly put it: “I’m auditioning because I’m 28. It’s on my bucket list.” While a love of karaoke and a “no regrets” attitude led some to the “American Idol” auditions, still others had garnered previous musical experience through choir, glee clubs, musical theater, musical instruments or band involvement. With a single out on iTunes, Jillian Dudley is an exemplary representation of some of the more experienced people auditioning. Proceeds from her single “Rewind the World” benefit Invisible Children. “Music is a universal language and everyone speaks it. I built a house in east Tijuana and, even though the local kids didn’t speak English, they were psyched I was singing. One girl even suggested I try out for ‘American Idol,’” Dudley said. In addition to playing guitar, performing with her band “Land Without Trees,” writing original music, and participating in vocal com-

“You never really know who is in line with you so it’s a good chance to market yourself. I stayed in contact with a lot of the people I’ve met and we’ll do covers on YouTube.” At around 8 a.m., potential contestants were allowed into the stadium where they waited in assigned seats for their turn to sing. Hopefuls were led in small groups down to a line of white tents in the center of the park where they sang for producers of the show. “I honestly don’t know what the judges are looking for. It all depends on your personality, looks and luck. And it’s a TV show; the drama aspect of it is what gives the show good ratings,” another Idol hopeful, Kristi Krause, said. Another contestant, Nicole Hargett, gave a slightly different perspective, adding that, “[The auditions] are not fair. They’re looking for crazy people and I want them to base it on talent.” “Our friends dressed up as Fruit of the Loom and they made it! This was their third time auditioning and they never made it before [when they came dressed

Janai Abel petitions at the Del Mar Fair, Dudley also helped to successfully petition her high school to develop a choir program. Similarly, Natalie Rae, a local high school graduate, has met with booking agents and performed at venues, such as the Hard Rock Café, in San Diego. In regards to her “American Idol” audition, she said,

normally]…I suppose they have to make an interesting show,” Pendergrass said. While many contestants used clothing and makeup to communicate their personality to the judges, others let their singing speak for itself, auditioning with original songs and lyrics. “The song I’m singing today I wrote myself and it’s a fun, happy, love song. I tried on a bunch of different looks but I decided I need to stay true to myself. I’m just curly beach hair, bracelets faded from the sun…I’m just a San Diego girl,” Abel said. A homeless woman sitting curbside hummed “Another One Bites the Dust” while pointedly watching the rejected singers filing out of the stadium in varying degrees of dejection. Be it for talent, appearance or another factor, the lucky singers who made it through the preliminary July 7 auditions underwent another round of tryouts on July 9. Those who still remained will be advancing to audition in front of the celebrity judges in September.

Rendezvous remodel brightens and lightens the popular eatery

Walnut Shrimp in a creamy, sweet sauce with steamed broccoli

BY KELLEY CARLSON el Mar Rendezvous is one of the “older” restaurants in the city, according to restaurant partner Daniel Shalom Schreiber, but it will soon have plenty of new features. “By the end of this year, we will have put over a quarter-million dollars into improving the restaurant,” he said. The changes are reflected throughout the establishment — everything from the restrooms to the dining room. Some of the improvements are still under way. As guests enter the restaurant, they will see the floor-to-ceiling wine display, made of birch wood and stained an espresso color. There are new tables with granite tops, along with dark brown booths and chairs. The walls have been painted “romantic,” a creamtype color. And there are Chinese antiques displayed around the dining room, with additional purchases planned, Schreiber said. In addition, patrons will find Del Mar Rendezvous to be brighter — wood lattice fixtures have been added to aid in the reading of the menus, he said. And there is plenty of natural lighting, with large windows offering views of the patio, Camino del Mar and even glimpses of the Pacific. The patio is also being renovated

■ This week: Rendevouz’s Five Spice Braised Beef — a glass rail will extend it two feet farther, providing enclosure and allowing the restaurant to serve alcohol outside. There will be an awning over the area, and planters will contain water-wise plants such as “mother-in-law’s tongue” (Sansevieria trifasciata) and “horsetail” (Equisetum). Pets will be permitted, as well. Schreiber recommends guests check out the different specials offered and come on a night that suits them. For example, Wednesdays and Sundays are halfprice wine bottle nights, and on Mondays, there are no corkage fees, whereas the regular cost is $15. For those looking to avoid crowds, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings tend to be quieter, Schreiber said. He also recommends familystyle dining, with more than 100 dishes on the main menu, which

includes vegan and gluten-free options. The most popular Chinese cuisine items are the Sesame Crusted Seared Ahi; Walnut Shrimp; and Xango, a banana cheesecake wrapped in a cinnamon pastry and topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream, caramel and chocolate sauce. Chef Tony Su’s favorite dish is the Mongolian Rack of Lamb. “I’m a huge fan of our Five Spice Braised Beef,” Schreiber said. “It pretty much melts in your mouth. I’ve tried braised beef dishes at restaurants all over San Diego, and I’d have to say ours is one of the best. Our Walnut Shrimp are also incredible.” The establishment offers takeout, delivery, and catering. Diners may also find representatives from Del Mar Rendezvous cooking on-site at more than 10 charity events each year, giving free samples.

continued from page B1 Athens, Greece; and is scheduled to conduct workshops in New Orleans, Phoenix and Canada. “Subliminal therapy is clearly and distinctly different in many ways from hypnosis. The classical understanding of hypnosis doesn’t apply. Hypnosis is an element of subliminal therapy, but only an element. “It’s a technique that makes it possible — and this is why it’s so effective and so efficient time wise — to identify the cause of problems and resolve the problem at that level. Then the symptom, which is the presenting problem, ceases to exist. “The patient has to be intelligent enough to understand these concepts, intelligent enough to recognize that he or she has a problem and has to be open to new ways of thinking about things maybe. “I give credit to my engineering training, my engineering way of thinking, to the totally rational, logical, step-by-step process that subliminal therapy is. Every step is determined by the outcome of the previous step.” How long does a therapy generally take? “It’s the briefest of brief therapies that Iknow of,” he

continued from page B1 said. “A patient typically comes in with multiple problems. To solve any one of those problems, is probably not going to take more than an hour maybe two after an hour of introduction and training.” However, some disorders take longer. He has one patient with multiple personalities — dissociative identity disorder — whom he has been treating for 27 years. With treatment, the patient has led a relatively normal life and has maintained employment. “The dissociative disorders are classically long term in resolution,” he conceded. He has had a high success rate, he said, in treating addictive and sexual disorders. Of all the disorders, he said, the toughest to treat successfully is obesity. Asked if he has used some of these techniques, including self-hypnosis, to overcome any of his personal issues, he said: “Absolutely.” Such as? “I had hay fever, to a devastating degree, as a child. No longer a problem” Also sea sickness, smoking and nail-biting, no longer problems. Any others?

“Public speaking. That was a biggie. I didn’t solve that until I was in my 40s.” Asked if it’s necessary for a subliminal therapy patient to undergo hypnosis, Yager said: “No. There is no formal trance induction or anything of that nature implied, but, it is also true that during the course of employing subliminal therapy very commonly a patient will slip into what I identify as hypnotic trance, but it’s spontaneous.” Asked what has surprised him most in his years as a psychologist, he replied: “The key thing, if I wanted to isolate one thing, would be the malleability of the human psyche…We learn limitations, we learn values. We are conditioned creatures…and most of that conditioning comes from life experiences. “That’s the way problems come in; that’s the way all the good things that we enjoy come in; and even though we may have problems now, we are still malleable and knowing how to do some reconditioning, we can change. We can eliminate that limitation. We can alter almost any aspect of our experience.”

the bed – like anyone would actually look for it, especially my then inattentive ex. Having purged all of life’s injustices in about 40 pages, and realizing I felt better, I decided to continue writing. So I wrote about a get-rich-quick scheme I’d fantasized about for years: finding a fantasy date for a millionaire. Weaving my tawdry home life into the plot gave me my first novel, “Happy New Year, Darling,” published under the pen name Veronica Bennett. The most challenging part was letting my family read the sordid details, but when my sisters laughed their heads off, I realized I might just be on to something, and a writer was born. You write humorous mysteries, a cross between Carl Hiaasen and Helen Fielding. How did you choose your genre? Anyone who knows me knows I have always had get-rich-quick schemes. My father was a successful entrepreneur, and actually, now that I think about it, I was, too. In the ‘90s I expanded the comedy craze into “Comedy Nights” in hotels and clubs throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. I had five shows that ran for five years. I emceed many of the shows and was around fabulous comedy minds for seven years altogether – some of it just rubbed off, and I got funni-

er. What can I say? Often authors find the seeds of their characters in themselves and their friends. Who is Veronica Bennett? Me. She is generous … with advice, let’s say. Interfering is such a strong word. You were a finalist in a MOTH Grand Slam. As an artist, most particularly a writer and a singer, how much of a stretch was it for you to jump into the oral storytelling tradition? It was a good fit. I have seven siblings. Everyone is fighting for the storytopping tale at every dinner table. We have to speak in sound bites to get a story through before the next person interrupts. Plus, my siblings are fascinating. My sister is a prosecutor with three guys on death row. My brother is also an attorney whose hobby at one time was bull fighting. I am just not that fascinating among the Escalante clan, so I learned to tell a good story. And of course they gave me some great fodder. Why do you think the revival of the oral storytelling tradition has become such a hot literary format? Is it our voyeurism come into play, or is it something more? In a world where reality TV prevails, this is reality open mic, It is edgier than a poetry slam, less painful to watch than a comedy openmic, less therapeutic than an AA meeting, and a beautiful way to connect to a stranger with whom, prior to their

five-minute story, you had nothing in common. It really makes you think twice about judging people. I still recall stories I heard two years ago, from strangers. Storytelling challenges the anonymity we often feel in today’s digital world. You are married to Oscar-winning songwriter Paul Williams. What is it like to have two creative minds, two artists, living together? Do you critique each others work? We absolutely run everything by each other. He is tremendously supportive. The only down side is, he likes to talk to me, and it is distracting. He can talk and work, I cannot. It is difficult to stay in the “writing zone” when a witty person is passing by the door way…insisting on sharing their wit. What is the primary difference between your art form, storytelling, and his? Only notes and length. Paul’s lyrics really paint a picture. Many of his lessknown songs really evoke scenes. For example: “Loneliness…takes the romance out of falling stars, fills the wishing wells and fills the bars, run and hide the scars…of loneliness. How much of a stretch is it for you to go from oral, personal storytelling to writing a novel? It’s all the same thing. And to use your word, the novel is the biggest s-t-r-e-tc-h. Every character in the three novels I’ve written is See QUESTIONS, page B18

‘Engaging Shaw’ celebrates snaring a confirmed bachelor BY DIANA SAENGER Contributor John Morogiello’s West Coast premiere of “Engaging Shaw” mixes a bit of historical fact with a fictional romance for a delightful look at the marriage of Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw. The East Coast production in New York last year drew raves from critics. Henry Wishcamper returns to the Old Globe to direct its production, opening on July 29. Morogiello’s resume includes “Irish Authors Held Hostage,” “Men and Parts,” “Stonewall’s Bust,” “Gianni Schicchi,” and his new play “Blame It on Beckett,” which will premiere Off Broadway at Abingdon Theatre Company this October. Morogiello said he became interested in doing something about GBS when he was asked to write a study guide for a Shaw play at the Huntington Theatre Company in Boston. “I had to read Shaw’s biography, and when I read the part where he got married, I could not stop laughing,” Morogiello said. “It was funny the way he kept fighting it and fighting it, and eventually, she wore him down so all he could do was marry her.” It all went something like this … Wealthy heiress Charlotte Payne-Townshend has her sights on Shaw, a confirmed bachelor, philanderer and rumored to be unromantic as well. When Charlotte and Shaw become acquainted with Sidney and Beatrice Webb, Charlotte finds new ways to pursue her goal. Writing his play with the same structure of Shaw’s plays, Morogiello knew he would have only four characters telling his story. “Shaw, and his best friends Sidney and Beatrice Webb, are based on real people,” he said. “I used their letters to help me get their voices and who they were. I had to create all of Charlotte, as her estate wouldn’t cooperate with me, so she’s totally made up.” The Webbs, Morogiello explained, were founders of the Fabian Society in England. It was a socialist organization based on a democratic process. “When I came across an essay that Sidney Webb wrote on how to get the world to accept socialism, I realized that his idea was the exact same tactic Charlotte used to get Shaw to marry her. I think the story works well. “When The Internation-

al Shaw Society saw it in New York, a member said it was the best Shaw play he’d seen in 20 years and he (Shaw) didn’t even write it!” Morogiello said he’s excited to work with director Wishcamper (“The Mystery of Irma Vep,” “Spirit Control,” “Graceland,” “Animal Crackers,” “Talking Pictures”) and thinks his casting is terrific. Rod Brogan plays Shaw. He received his M.F.A. from The Old Globe/University of San Diego Graduate Theatre Program and has appeared on Broadway in “Mauritius,” the National Tour of “Doubt,” and Off Broadway in “Treasure Island,” among others. Angela Pierce portrays Charlotte. Her Broadway credits include “The

She’s extraordinarily sensitive and very vulnerable and great at showing the growth of her character. Michael Warner (“Missed Connections”) and Natalie Gold (“Twelfth Night”) are married in real life and wonderful as the Webbs. It’s really fun to watch them together. Michael and Natalie are the Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward of my play.”

Upcoming Fashion Film Festival II unique to North America BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT Contributor “Funny Face,” starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire, with iconic fashion photographer Richard Avedon as consultant, and designs by Hubert de Givenchy. You’ve seen that 54-year-old film on TV, right? Thanks to the Internet, fashion film has come a long way since then. These days, films are briefer, edgier, sexier, and take the concept of style to a whole new level. And there are festivals around the world showing the latest, greatest works of the hottest fashion filmmakers. But there’s only one fest in North America, and it’s right here — the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival. LJFFF is the brainchild of Fred Sweet, CEO of San Diego Model Management, the largest talent agency south of Los Angeles. He also produces “Fashion Film Network” on Facebook, a curated look at the community of fashion film creators that has a following of 5,000 worldwide. “I’ve had a fascination with the Internet my whole life, and I’ve been watching fashion videos evolve on the Web,” he said. “When fashion moved from print to the Inter-

The second annual La Jolla Fashion Film Festival brings the latest and greatest work of the new wave of international fashion filmmakers to town. net, it started to move, and it became even more interesting, and more erotic. I started thinking: some of these pieces are so fantastic now, we should show them to people.” His original idea was to gather some short films together and show them to a few dozen of his staff, friends, and clients. The inaugural fes-

Morgan Run Club & Resort to host a Torrey Pines State Reserve Forum Morgan Run Club & Resort will host a complimentary Knowledge Seekers Forum on Wednesday, July 27, at 6 p.m. This month Don Grine, former president of the Torrey Pines Docents will be talking about the Torrey Pines State Reserve, a real treasure located on the coast between Del Mar and La Jolla. Grine will provide a movie of the park, discuss the history, financial problems affecting state parks, geology, animals, and vegetation of the Reserve, with the Torrey Pine being the park’s primary attraction. These trees are native only to the Reserve and to Santa Rosa Island. The seminar begins at 6 p.m. Please RSVP to Morgan Run at (858) 756-2471. Morgan Run Resort is located at 5690 Cancha De Golf, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92091.

tival last year ended up drawing several hundred people to screenings of some 30 films. Riding the crest of what now is a worldwide phenomenon, the second annual LJFFF promises to be even bigger and better than the first. From more than 4,000 submissions, 40 films were chosen, each from 1 to 15

minutes long. “Just right for the Twitter generation,” Sweet said. The filmmakers hail from style-conscious cities like New York, London, Paris, Berlin and Hong Kong. They may not be household words here, but they’ve got great fashion cred. Directors who will be attending the festival include: Peruvian-born, Sorbonne-trained, Toronto-based Miguel Jacob; Tak Kuroha (born in Tokyo, raised in Italy, and now living in L.A. and London); Miguel Angel Font Bisier, “one of Valencia Spain’s most influential artists”; New York’s Marcus K Jones, “an ascendant force in today’s fashion films”; and Jacques Dequeker, named “Best Fashion Photographer in Brazil.” There will also be an assortment of actors, producers, agents, and “entourages” in attendance. Last year’s films were shown on an outdoor screen at the Cove. “There were too many variables — weather conditions, ambient noise, special audio requirements,” Sweet said. “This year, we’re at the Museum of Contemporary Art, which is perfect. It’s classy, beautiful, and there are no technical issues.” One of Sweet’s goals is to make LJFFF the West Coast

based on someone I know. I use their physical description, mannerisms, and then put them in a weird situation with another character based on someone, or a conglomeration of someones, I know, and watch what happens. You are now hosting storytelling events throughout Southern California. Why is having a forum for storytelling important? The first time I got up in front of a couple of hundred people in Venice, California, at a Moth Story Slam, I won. This was one of the most thrilling nights of my life because there were comics and screenwriters also on stage – the competition was fierce. There were 10 of us. I had the best story that night. Not surprisingly, music was the subject. At the semi-finals, I brought out the big guns with “It Sucks to be Vain and Poor,” which I later recorded on my CD of “Wince-Worthy Tales” – an embarrassing story that was worth the telling as it garnered me second place and showed me how much pleasure a story could provide for an audience. In the moment of the telling I

felt as though I knew them and they knew me, as though we were truly seeing each other. There is vulnerability in storytelling. Storytelling is a means of reaching out and connecting, of sharing our humanity. And when it is done in the oral tradition, there is no wall between the teller and the audience – the connection is direct. In this age of electronic communication, when we often miss out on the warmth and nuance of direct communication, storytelling events are a last vestige of that direct human connection. Tell us a bit about the event in Encinitas? I have been asked to hold a storytelling event for a teacher retiring from La Costa Canyon high school. This is a private evening with friends and colleagues sharing stories. However the educator has been to many of my storytelling events, and she is actively looking for a spot to hold a monthly “WinceWorthy Tales” event in her area, Encinitas. How can people find out more about you, your books, and your storytelling events? All kinds of information about me, the books, and the events can be found at www.marianawilliams.com.

Mini women’s retreats and ‘Spa Days’ being held in Rancho Santa Fe BY STACEY PHILLIPS CONTRIBUTOR Self-improvement and wellness, health and beauty – they are all part of two upcoming daylong retreats being held July 31 and Aug. 21 at a Estee Gubbay private residence in Rancho Santa Fe. The retreat coordinator, Estee Gubbay, said that participants will learn the latest fashion trends from a celebrity stylist and hear tips on how to follow your dreams and make positive changes in your life, while spending the day relaxing in beautiful surroundings. “I’ve always loved bringing people together and who doesn’t love a fun day of health and beauty,” said Gubbay, who has planned numerous retreats and workshops during her 23 years as a facilitator. “Women spend so much time taking care of others, but they usually don’t have the time or money for a spa vacation or retreat. My goal is to make these types of experiences accessible to everyone in a fun, casual environment with practical tips and motivating, dynamic speakers.” The first event will be held on Sunday, July 31: “A Day of Rejuvenation, Wellness and Beauty.” Bestselling author and business and life mentor Allison Maslan, who wrote “Blast Off! The Surefire Success Plan to Launch Your Dreams Into Reality,” will be speaking about how to make positive changes in attitude and lifestyle while bringing life into focus. Maslan has worked with a variety of clients, including Sam Zien, winner of 12 Emmys and TV host of “Sam The Cooking Guy.” Participants will also hear

the latest on current fashion trends from Los Angeles fashion stylist Kristi Brooks, who has worked with celebrities such as Sharon Stone. “I hope everyone walks away feeling as if they have been pampered as well as given a step-by-step roadmap to living a more fulfilling and happy life,” said Gubbay. “I’m excited to pull these experts together and share my connections with other people.” The full-day program includes lunch, workshops and a yoga class taught by Susan McCrea, owner of San Diego’s Traveling Spa. Massages, facials and hair feathers are available at an additional cost. Gubbay said there will also be time to use the pool and spa. The mother/daughter retreat and spa day will be held on Sunday, Aug. 21: “A Day of Fun, Bonding and Beauty.” Designed for moms and teen girls ages 11-19, the program is similar to the women’s retreat and includes lunch, a yoga/dance class and workshops. A teen life coach will speak, as well as a Los Angeles fashion stylist and makeup artist. “The day is geared toward improving mother/daughter communication and helping your teen make good decisions in social situations, appropriate dressing and makeup,” said Gubbay, who has many friends with teenage daughters and are worried about the choices they make. With two daughters of her own, Gubbay said she understands their concern. “I noticed there are not many places to go with your daughter where you both can have fun and improve your relationship.” Each full-day program costs $70 and will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Registration and information is available online at www.womensminiretreat.eventbrite.com or www.motherdaughterminiretreat.eventbrite.com As an independent consultant working with luxury resorts, Estee Gubbay provides hotel guests with a variety of uniquely-themed wellness weekends similar to what they would find at top destination spas. She plans themes, finds expert speakers, schedules and facilitates workshops, and serves as hostess and guide to guests motivated to seek, discover and live their best life possible.
