High school district board to vote on bond •If approved, long-planned bond would be placed on November ballot; Bond would help pay for a number of much-needed projects, superintendent says

By KAREN BILLING The San Dieguito Union School District board will be making a decision at its July 26 meeting whether to put a $449 million general obligation bond on the November ballot. The money from the bond will go to support upgrades in the district’s nine schools, including a new performing arts center and gym for Torrey Pines High School, as well as the construction of a new middle school in Carmel Valley. The San Dieguito district last went for a bond in 1971. “It’s been 40 years and we believe what we’re looking at getting this district in very good standing for the next approximately 40 years,” said Superintendent Ken Noah.“We’re not doing this lightly.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

RSF Association picks bank to refinance clubhouse loan BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe Association has selected a Pacific Western Bank to refinance the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club’s clubhouse renovation loan. Back in 2006, the Golf Club took out two loans to pay for the balance of the cost to renovate the clubhouse. The renovation costs were not-to-exceed $11,833,000 million; the Association paid for some of the costs in cash. The loans included a larger one in the amount of $6 million and the smaller loan was for $2,148,418. RSF Association Manager Pete Smith said the original intent was for the loans to be paid off in 10 years based on an enrollment of 45 new memberships a year. However, Smith said, after the economic downturn that number dropped to an average of 15 new memberships a year so it became clear that the loans would not be paid off at that rate. The Golf Club and the Association came to a consensus last year to refinance and lock into a fixed rate loan rather than a variable rate loan. The first step, already completed, was that the Association replace the 5.75 percent, $1,650,000 million variable rate loan with a fixed 2 percent loan with a 10-year amortization and an annual payment of $182,184. Their next step, was to pursue a fixed rate loan to replace the current loan in the amount of about $5,394,665 (the payoff amount as of Aug. 1, 2012). From five proposals, they selected the Pacific Western Bank’s terms. Pacific Western Bank’s loan terms are an unsecured 4 percent fixed rate loan, with a 10-year balloon, built-in index rate that allows the Association to reset the loan at maturity. Smith said the good news is that the monthly payment of $34,590 falls within the amount collected through the golf club special debt assessment and in 10 years they will have a total outstanding balance on both loans of $2.9 million, which they could pay off in another five years.

RSF Association board approves funding for CHP’s Senior Volunteer Patrol and Explorer Program BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe Association board approved a funding donation of $7,000 for the California Highway Patrol’s Senior Volunteer Patrol (SVP) and Explorer Program at its July 19 meeting. The Association had budgeted for $3,000 for the Senior Volunteers and $1,000 for the Explorers, but the board voted to up its contribution as has been done in years past. “I think it’s absolutely fabulous what the program has done for the youth and the community and the visibility of having the (SVP) here is a wonderful [crime] deterrent,” RSF Association Vice President Anne Feighner said. RSF Patrol Chief Matt Wellhouser said that the senior volunteers provide valuable extra help in the Ranch, doing it all for free. They help with special events such as the Fourth of July parade; direct morning and afternoon school traffic; report observed traffic problems; and provide a visual law enforcement presence. Oceanside CHP Commander Deb Schroeder said that the volunteers have been especially helpful in the face of a current fiscal crisis. “They have been absolutely phenomenal for my office,” said Schroeder of the program that receives no state fund-

ing. John Green, the SVP captain who has served the Rancho Santa Fe area for the last 10 years, said he truly enjoys being in the Ranch and providing a good service. “We wouldn’t exist without you,” said John Green, the SVP captain. The Explorers program the Association supports is for young individuals, ages 15 to 21, who have an interest in a law enforcement career. Currently, 25 law enforcement officers with the Oceanside CHP began in the Explorers program. “We are touted as the best Explorer program in the state,” Schroeder said. “The support you’ve provided us means more than you could ever imagine.” The program is entirely run on donations and the Association’s funding helps purchase training equipment and uniforms and allows them to compete at two annual competitions. One of their Explorers recently placed second overall in an Explorer competition in Las Vegas. The Explorer said she was “truly thankful” for the Association’s support in helping to build toward a future in law enforcement though her Explorer post.

Woman killed in Rancho Santa Fe motorcycle accident A female passenger was killed and the male driver severely injured in a motorcycle accident that occurred on July 21 in Rancho Santa Fe. At approximately 10:25 p.m., William Jimenez, 58, and his passenger, a 49-year-old female (both from Escondido), were riding his 2009 Harley Davidson 3- wheeled motorcycle northbound on Via De Fortuna in Rancho Santa Fe at an unknown speed, according to CHP officer Jim Bettencourt. For an unknown reason, Jimenez allowed his motorcycle to veer off of the roadway and crash into several trees

and a wooden fence, Bettencourt said. Jimenez sustained major injuries and was transported to Scripps La Jolla Hospital. The passenger on the motorcycle, the 49-year-old female from Escondido, was pronounced dead at the scene, Bettencourt said. As of this time it remains unclear what the relationship is between the driver and the passenger. Alcohol is a suspected factor in this collision, according to Bettencourt. The collision remains under investigation.

Bookkeeper sentenced for embezzling funds from Solana Beach company BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A La Jolla woman who stole nearly $1.5 million from a real estate development company where she worked as a bookkeeper was sentenced July 24 to nearly six years in state prison. Jennifer Lyndi Davey, 64, was also ordered by Vista Superior Court Judge Kimberlee Lagotta to pay more than $1.487 million in restitution. Davey was arrested in February and pleaded guilty two months later to grand theft and forgery. She had been under investigation since early 2008, when the bookkeeper who succeeded her at Beckman Properties in Solana Beach discovered a fraudulent account the defendant had set up to funnel stolen funds from the firm, said sheriff’s Sgt. Mark Varnau. While employed as accountant and operations manager at Beckman, Davey altered

or forged 332 checks drawn against company accounts, used company business funds to pay off her credit cards, and created phony credit card statements to cover her thefts, according to Varnau. Davey — whose position gave her access to banking information to five business entities operated by Beckman — created a fake business account under the name Professional Advisors Unlimited and transferred the stolen funds into it, the sergeant said. Her employers eventually fired Davey in late 2007 over unrelated job performance issues prior to the discovery of the embezzled funds, Varnau said. He said the investigation took nearly four years to complete because the case was financially complicated. Davey used the stolen money to support a lavish lifestyle, which included trips and the purchase of jewelry, Varnau said.

New genetic test predicts prostate cancer risk BY LYNNE FRIEDMANN A genetic test to predict the risk for prostate cancer could reduce the need for repeat biopsies in men who have previously had negative biopsies. In a clinical trial, 1,654 men who had prostate biopsies also had genetic studies conducted that looked for the presence of genetic variations that may have an association with prostate cancer risk. The genetic test outperformed the widely used PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) test in assessing cancer risk. Because this “genetic score” is available at any time in a man’s lifetime it could be used as a prescreening test thus leaving aggressive PSA screening only to men at higher genetic risk. The goal is to avoid, particularly in older men, unnecessary repeat biopsy procedures which carry with them the risk of infection and potential hospitalizations. —Findings appear in the journal of European Urology. News release at http://bit.ly/M7iaHV Inhibiting malaria parasite development Malaria is responsible worldwide for more than 1.2 million human deaths annually. Severe forms of the disease are caused by the parasite Plasmodium falciparum transmitted to humans by the bite of female Anopheles mosquitoes. Lack of vaccines, together with the parasite’s ability to develop drug resistance, has thwarted eradication efforts. An international team of scientists, led by researchers from the Department of Pediatrics at the UC School of Medicine, has identified the first reported inhibitors of a key enzyme essential for the development

and survival of P. falciparum – even in parasites that developed resistance to currently available drugs. People with a natural deficiency in this enzyme are protected from malaria and its deadly symptoms, an observation that triggered the research effort. The hope is the discovery could provide the basis for future anti-malarial drug design. —Findings appear in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry. News release at http:// bit.ly/MAaz9u Fighting E. coli infection Despite ongoing public health efforts, E. coli bacteria outbreaks continue to infiltrate the food supply, annually causing significant sickness and death throughout the world. Researchers from the La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology have discovered a molecule’s previously unknown role in fighting off E. coli and other bacterial infections. The molecule (known as HVEM), expressed by the cells lining the surface of the lung and intestine, is critical to protecting the body from E. coli, pneumococcus, and other bacterial infections that enter our bodies through our respiratory or intestinal tract linings. But what wasn’t known was that HVEM, together win another receptor, is critically important in turning on an antibacterial response in the epithelial cells that line the body’s mucosal borders of the mouth, nose, intestines, and lungs. Without the two receptors acting in concert to provide this added protection, the body could not withstand these bacterial infections. —The findings are published in the journal Nature.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

RSF Art Jury Corner: Grading One of the defining characteristics of Rancho Santa Fe is the beauty of its landforms. Different areas of the Ranch each have their own unique characteristics such as rolling hills, valleys, level pasture, canyons, steep cliffs and ravines. These topographic features give a unique feeling to different areas within the Covenant and act as natural boundaries to define properties and provide beautiful vistas. These landforms are part of what the Covenant describes as Rancho Santa Fe’s “rare landscape features.” Since the inception of the Covenant, the community has grown in a way that has preserved these “rare landscape features” by integrating development with the Ranch’s landforms. Contrast the appearance of the Ranch with developments where the natural landforms have been obliterated and turned into artificial-looking landscapes of manmade, flat pads stair-stepping up the hillsides. The integration of a home with the landscape results from thoughtfully prepared architectural and grading designs. The Art Jury requires grading designs that reflect the unique characteristics of the property for which the home is proposed. Because of the unique nature of each site, a grading proposal that works for one property will not work for another, just as a home proposed for a level lot would not be appropriate for the side of a hill. A successful design will retain the overall form of a lot’s topography while creating enough level area to accommodate a home. Siting a home on a sloping lot requires careful planning to take advantage of the opportunities presented by a sloped topography. It is inappropriate to propose massive grading of a large, flat pad to accommodate a house that was designed for a flat lot rather than a sloping lot. Builders and designers

will often try to impose the features of a “valley floor” home on a hillside lot by proposing single-level floor plans surrounded by large, flat lawns and a wide, circular driveway at the front door. Accommodating those types of features on a hillside requires grading a large, flat pad with the associated artificial cut and fill slopes that not only destroy the form of the hill but also eliminate the unique design possibilities afforded by a sloping lot. Homes can be successfully constructed on a hillside lot by using design solutions that take advantage of the form of the hill itself. Hillside designs can include interesting, multi-level floor plans and yard spaces at different levels that create a variety of living areas and views. A good designer can create a home design on a sloping lot that is as functional and livable as one at the bottom of the valley, but the design of the hillside home will be different from a “flatland” house. By reviewing hillside development with the goal of maintaining the natural form of the land, the Art Jury reduces the amount of required grading. Eliminating needless grading not only helps preserve the “rare landscape features” described in the Covenant but lessens the prominence of structures and increases the diversity of design, thus reinforcing the signature community character of Rancho Santa Fe. For additional guidance on hillside development, property owners should consult the Protective Covenant as well as the “Rancho Santa Fe Residential Design Guidelines” and the “Slope Protection Regulation for Grading and Building Permit Applications” contained within Chapter 41 of the “Rancho Santa Fe Regulatory Code.” These documents are available at the Rancho Santa Fe Association office. — RSF Art Jury

Acclamation tops at Eddie Read Stakes Acclamation extended his winning streak to seven, as the race favorite led wire-to-wire in the $300,000 Eddie Read Stakes (Grade I) at Del Mar on July 21. It was also the second consecutive year that he won the event. The 6-year-old Acclamation — who is the nation’s reigning champion older horse — covered the 1 1/8 miles on the turf course in 1:46.86 with Patrick Valenzuela in the irons. Interaction finished 2 3/4 lengths back in second, while Casino Host was third. The next stop for Acclamation, who is trained by Don Warren, and owned by Judy and Bud Johnston and Peter and Mary Hilvers, will likely be in the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic (Grade I) on Aug. 26, which he won last year, or the Del Mar Handicap (Grade II) on Aug. 25.

TPHS graduate comes home to perform at Humphreys Backstage Live event BY CATHERINE KOLONKO A hometown girl who once performed musical theater at Torrey Pines High School returns to San Diego this week to perform her lifeinspired songs during an indie showcase concert July 27 at Humphreys Backstage Live. Alisha Zalkin recently released an EP of five new Alisha Zalkin songs that she Photo/ Jeffrey Fiterman co-wrote with friend and songwriter Tina Shafer. The pair met after Zalkin graduated from UCLA and moved to New York City. Shafer runs the New York Songwriters Circle and once penned a song for Celine Dion, Zalkin said. “It really was a dream to work with her…so we worked together and created this new EP that was just released on June 19,” Zalkin said. “You, Beautiful You,” is one of the songs from the EP that Zalkin has performed in several venues, including a benefit at the Bitter End in New York. The soulful upbeat ballad tells the inspirational story of breaking through emotional darkness to discover an inner light, says Zalkin. The 26-year-old sings it with a bold and soulful voice that evokes styles of power vocalists Celine Dion and Whitney Houston whom she has admired since childhood. “‘Beautiful You’ is uplifting but it also came from a dark place of not knowing who I was and not having the courage or the self confidence to do what I was meant to do,” Zalkin said. Zalkin lived for three years in New York where she initially pursued a musical theater career. It wasn’t long before her love of singing and songwriting pulled her in that direction. “I quickly learned that musical theater was not for me,” she said. She recently moved back to California and lives in Los Angeles. Music influenced Zalkin from an early age. She began taking voice lessons at 8 and was exposed to differing musical genres given her upbringing as a child of a Jewish father and Mexican mother. Her Jewish grandmother was an opera singer and the youngest person to be admitted into the Vienna Conservatory of Music, but lost her chance to attend when she fled to the United States to escape Hitler and the Holocaust. “I was exposed to a big voice when I was little,” Zalkin said, explaining that her grandmother sang in Yiddish for benefit shows and family occasions. “I was singing, gosh, ever since I could speak,” said Zalkin, who graduated from Torrey Pines High School. Zalkin’s parents also contributed to her musical taste and introduced her to the works of Carole King, one of her favorite singer-songwriters. She describes her own style as acoustic pop with a little bit of soul. “That’s just the style that naturally came of out of me and came out of the music that we were creating,” Zalkin said. “March To a Different Beat” is the title

of her new EP and also the title of one her favorite songs on it. She wrote the song after a revealing conversation with her father about what it was like for him to grow up in the ‘60s and ‘70s as a child of immigrant parents who survived the Holocaust, Zalkin said. For the first time she learned how her father “struggled with his identity and fitting in,” and rebelled but then ultimately found his way in life. He graduated from law school and became an advocate for child victims of sexual abuse. “I never knew his life story, the difficulties he faced,” Zalkin said. “He had a very interesting life. I walked away from that conversation just incredibly inspired and proud of who he is and who he’s become.” The Mexican culture from her mother’s side also influenced Zalkin’s music appreciation. Mariachi music filled the home of her Mexican grandmother and during bustling family gatherings, everyone paused in religious deference any time Ave Maria played, she said. “I really understood how sacred music was for one thing, but also it was the common thread between the two different cultures,” Zalkin said. The songs she co-wrote with Shafer also reveal Zalkin’s personal struggles to look inward and discover her real self, to learn the life lesson that sometimes the obstacle in your path is you. “I never looked inward and trusted myself…I was too afraid to be who I knew I should be, who I wanted to be,” Zalkin said. “I always performed so I was always looking for validation outside of myself. Once I went inward…I could really understand myself.” A longtime practitioner of yoga, Zalkin decided to learn to teach it. While working for yoga clothing retailer Lululemon she was encouraged to pursue her interest and eventually devoted 500 hours to the study of becoming a Yogi, she said. Her twitter page features a photograph of her sitting in a yoga pose, eyes closed, her long dark hair draped over a flowing blue dress. While her current EP is available on iTunes, Zalkin hopes to one day sign with a music label to expand her audience and believes it will happen when the time is right, she said. She also wants to use her music to raise awareness about social issues. In the song “Say It To My Face” she sings about the injustice of cyber bullying. “I feel it is my job as an artist to speak to those issues and those truths and bring people together to help each other.” The Friday show at Humphreys, dubbed Indie by Design, will be Zalkin’s second performance in her hometown since leaving New York. Earlier this year she played at The Office in North Park. She describes the upcoming event as a treat for people looking for great live music and relief from day-today worries. Sharing billing with other independent artists, she expects to hit the stage soon after the show begins at 9 p.m. “I’m really, really excited,” she said. In addition, to songs from her latest EP, Zalkin says her set may also include a song with rapping that she covers more as spoken word. “Who says Mexican Jewish girls can’t rap” posted Zalkin in a recent post on her Twitter page. Admission for the Humphreys show is $12; www.humphreysbackstagelive.com. Recordings of Zalkin’s music can be accessed on her web site at www.alishazmusic.com.

She played volleyball, basketball and ran track, and won a basketball scholarship to Friends University in Kansas. Fonte spent several years working for the founders of Residence Inn before going back to school to get her MBA from Harvard Business School. “My goal was to go to the top school in the world,” Fonte said, who boldly only applied to Harvard and was one of the “chosen ones” to make it in and survive. Grace and Fonte met through their parents in 1991—their parents went to the same church in Northern California and found out both of their daughters lived in San Diego. What started with meeting for coffee and helping out a new San Diegan led to a partnership that has been very successful. Fonte was able to bring her business acumen to complement Grace’s medical field strengths. They have always shared an office, an invisible line separating the business and medical sides. “We don’t have to have meetings to know what’s going on,” said Grace. “We trust each other to know what’s best for our patients and what’s best for our team. That’s how we operate.” Together they have developed the OnTrack System, a unique non-surgical method for the management of patellofemoral dysfunction, a knee disorder that both Grace and Fonte have battled It’s the only system that realigns the patella and can return the joint anatomy back to normal and is now used worldwide. The pair also developed OrthoRx, Inc. in 1995, a research, development and orthopedic product company. In 1997, they created OrthoEd, an international medical education seminar company. Together they have traveled all over the country to help teach medical professionals about effective and successful treatment of patellofemoral dysfunction. “I like what we do. There’s never going to be a hand that comes out of (a machine) to change people’s lives,” Fonte said. “When a patient comes to us, a person who really cares looks them in the eye, asks them how they’re doing today and touches them. The patient knows they’re in good hands, hands that can take them to a whole other level of wellness. They know we’re going to take good care of them. That’s the contribution we get to make every day.” Re-branding themselves as Evolve was part of their hope to establish a lasting legacy with their facility “It’s fun,” Grace said. “How many jobs are there where someone comes in with pain and leaves not in pain? How satisfying is that?” Evolve is located at 11468 Sorrento Valley Road, suite A, San Diego, 92121. For more information call (858) 457-3545 or visit evolveadvancedwellness.com. The second Wednesday of every month at Evolve is “Wellthy Wednesday,” where a speaker comes in to speak on a variety of topics. On Aug. 25 at 5:30 p.m., there will be a speaker on memory. September’s talk will be “Wine, Women and Hormones.”

Former TPHS football coach Ed Burke seeks families to host members of Japanese football team Former Torrey Pines High School football coach Ed Burke is hosting the senior members of the Ritsumeikan Uji Panthers football team from Kyoto, Japan, and is looking for families that are interested in hosting a player. They will arrive the Friday evening, Aug. 17, and depart early Monday morning, Sept. 3. The team will be attending school and practicing at Torrey Pines during their stay, so most of the transportation needs will be similar to that of students attending Torrey Pines. They will be on campus from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m each school day. You will be asked to provide their meals, including a bagged lunch, during the two weeks that they are attending classes. At times the boys will be attending special events where a meal will be supplied or purchased by the player at no expense to you. A daily stipend of $15 will be provided to help offset your food and gas expenses. This will be the sixth year that the senior members of the Panthers football team have attended Torrey Pines, and every year has been a wonderful opportunity to get to know extraordinary young men from another culture. Many of the former host families have established a lasting friendship with their player that remains active today – a truly special experience. If interested, please contact Ed Burke by phone at (760) 331-7412 or through email at edandloretta@sbcglobal.net.

Doug Giese

Profile

Multi-talented RSF resident helps give deserving entrepreneurs a chance BY KATHY DAY As a man who helps new entrepreneurs with good ideas get a kickstart in business, Doug Giese passes on some sage advice that someone once gave him. Starting a business, he said, is like being a Mississippi riverboat gambler: It’s a closed community. They don’t bet everything on one roll of the dice and if they don’t play fair, no one will play with them. The same is true when starting a company, he said. “Conserve cash, don’t be crazy and get a real good board of directors,” said the Rancho Santa Fe resident who is on the board of Tech Coast Angels (www.techcoastangels.com) and is a founder and vice president of its seed track program. The organization, the largest investor network of its kind in the country, assists earlystage companies with capital

and guidance, while its seed program focuses on those with proven technology that generally don’t qualify for traditional angel or venture capital funding. Giese is also involved with a start-up company, Agile Nanotech Inc., that’s applying technology from UCLA’s nanotechnology lab to use infrared light to look into muscles to determine oxygen levels. He said the concept is something that could be of great value to “higher-end athletes who want more specific performance data.” The company is working the Human Performance Laboratory at San Diego State University and a consultant from UC Davis to advance the idea and expects to file for a provisional patent in three to six months, he added. An engineer who says his parents embody the

Education: B.E. in biomedical and electrical engineering, M.S./Ph.D. in electrical engineering, all from Vanderbilt University. Family: He and his wife Debbie have been married for 36 years. She is a past-president and member of the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild. They have two children. Michael, 22, recently graduated from Emerson College in screenwriting/business. Adriene, 25, was married June 16, 2012, at the Church of the Nativity and is starting medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) at Galveston in August. Interests: Family, friends, photography, sailing, camping, coaching RSF Little League. Reading: “Little America: The War Within the War for Afghanistan” by Rajiv Chandrasekaran; “From Manassas to Appomattox: Memoirs of the Civil War in America” by Gen. James Longstreet; “Kearny’s March: The Epic Creation of the American West, 1846-1847” by Winston Groom; “Cyber War: The Next Threat to National Security and What to Do About It” by Robert Clarke and Richard Knake.

Philosophy: The Golden Rule. On a less serious note, “Everywhere I go, there I am.”

American story, Giese married Debbie, his high school sweetheart from Palos Verdes High School. His family moved there after his dad, who grew on a wheat farm and dropped out of school in eighth grade, married his mom, who was raised on a cattle ranch. “After they married, he got a Ph.D. in electrical engineering,” he recalled, noting they first settled in Gardena before moving to Rolling Hills. His own educational track took him to Vanderbilt University in Nashville, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in biomedical and electrical engineering, along with a master’s and Ph.D. in electrical engineering. Debbie, an acclaimed artist who is active in the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild, followed him and attended college there as well. She’s an active member of the Church of the Nativity; he concedes he’s “the wayward husband” and not as involved as she is. Their daughter Adriene recently became the first Nativity School graduate to be married at the church. His first job out of college was with TRW in Redondo Beach where he was involved with the early stages of artificial intelligence and the LANDSAT imaging systems. But the couple “didn’t like L.A.,” Geise said, so when the company opened its San Diego division he came here to manage the software group. But he “got the bug to start his own company,” and with three friends launched AP Labs, which developed complex signaling processes and rugged computers and consulted mostly with the military on such projects as submarines B2 bomber. After selling his share of the company in 2002, he joined Tech Coast Angels. While Giese says as “an engineer I’m not too crazy,” he enjoys ocean sailing and once sailed single-handed in a storm from Los Angeles to San Diego on a 22-foot boat. He also likes driving his Jeep off road – slowly — in the Southern California deserts. Debbie, who camped

Photo/John Riedy Photography and did the off-road trips with Doug when Adriene and Michael – now college grads – were younger, is not too keen about sailing, he noted, especially because of her memories of that trip to San Diego. Facing rough conditions near Catalina, he said, he recalled being told that “if you can’t do anything else, just go below and rest.” So he battened down the hatches, dropped anchor and tried to sleep. The next morning, sails shredded and his radio direction finder broken, he set out again even though he couldn’t see land or sky to aid his navigation. At one point, he “got a brief glimpse of Oceanside.” Meanwhile, he said, Debbie called the Coast Guard and asked if she should be concerned. They answered, “Yes, be very concerned.” Although they didn’t launch a search that night because of the conditions, the next day they sent out a helicopter. “They held out a sign that said ‘Are you Doug Giese,’” he recalled. “I said, ‘Yes and my house is right over there.” He finished the

trip. Giese also enjoys photography, a hobby he took up when their children were involved in sports. Daughter Adriene attended Rice University on a soccer scholarship and was named Defensive Player of the Year in

“Conserve cash, don’t be crazy and get a real good board of directors.” — Doug Giese Conference USA play while there. “I couldn’t stand to watch the games,” he said, so he went and bought a full complement of lenses and cameras. He’s even entered photos in the San Diego County Fair and on occasion has taken photos for friends. He also enjoys taking a walk in the park – the San Diego Safari Park. “I can’t exercise on a treadmill,” he said, so every morning he makes the 20-minute drive from their Rancho Santa Fe home to the park that they’ve been members of for 30 years. “It’s a place to get away

and clear your head,” he said, adding that he also talks to the keepers and gets the “inside stories” that come with getting to know people he sees daily. During their 17 years in the Ranch, Giese has made some good friends, several of whom are members of a small book club that meets regularly either at Mille Fleurs or The Inn. They read mostly history and some books about finance, but they recently took up a book about storm sailing that mentions Giese’s trip, “Kawabunga’s South Sea Adventure” by Charles Dewell. In a chapter about a “Storm at Sea,” Dewell wrote, “In my misery I thought of my friend Doug Giese and thought that he would probably love this situation. He and I used to go storm sailing off Point Loma in San Diego. What a madman …” During his own night at sea, Giese said, he kept thinking “that’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever done. It’s cold and raining …” Today, he said, if he did it again, he’d be sure that he had a working radio and a cell phone. But repeating that trip isn’t on the horizon because he’s not sailing much these days. Right now, he’s in the middle of a whirlwind of activities that started with Michael’s graduation from Emerson University, where he earned a degree in screenwriting that he hopes to combine with a strong background in computers to find a job. Then came Adriene’s wedding and then his and Debbie’s 36th anniversary. Next, they’re off to Boise for a nephew’s wedding before heading to Galveston for the “white coat ceremony” marking Adriene’s entry into medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch. “It’s been pretty intense,” he said while enjoying a quiet moment at Thyme in the Ranch. “We enjoy living here. People are very nice … It’s a good place for kids to grow up.”

Letters to the Editor/Opinion/Guest commentary

Mental illness is an issue that must be addressed We at the International Bipolar Foundation mourn the loss of those killed in the tragic shootings Friday, July 20. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims’ families and all those affected. We recognize that this senseless shooting will stimulate many conversations about gun laws, public safety, violence and their association to mental illness. James Holmes, the alleged gunman, opened fire on innocent moviegoers during a midnight screening of the “The Dark Knight Rises” at an Aurora, Colorado theater, leaving 12 people dead and more than 50 wounded. Although his actions clearly dem-

onstrate that Mr. Holmes was grappling with demons, it is too early in the investigation to know if he has a mental illness or not. His actions, however, do beg us to look more closely at our nation’s mental health system. According to Dr. E. Fuller Torrey, M.D., a leading authority on the association of violence and severe mental illness and founder of the Treatment Advocacy Center, “People with mental illnesses who are being treated are not more dangerous than the general population, but evidence has become overwhelming that untreated severe mental illnesses are a significant contributor to violent acts, including homicides and a large percentage of ram-

page murders.” More than 75 million American adults and 12.8 million children have a mental illness (three times the number of those with diabetes and 10 times the number of ALL cancers combined). Deep cuts to state spending on services for adults and children with mental illnesses has resulted in significant reductions in hospital and community services. With one in four Americans suffering from a diagnosable mental illness, the impact on society is staggering. Despite the alarming number of people affected with a mental illness, statistics show that only one-third of these individuals seek treatment. Ac-

cording to Dr. Thomas Insel of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), psychiatry is the only part of medicine where there is actually greater stigma for receiving treatment for these illnesses than for having them. Four of the 10 leading causes of disability worldwide are mental disorders. Why then do we continue to veil it in silence, bringing it out only when tragedies such as this senseless shooting occur? Mental illness is an issue that we as a community and a nation must address. Mental illness affects 1 in 4 with no regard to race, gender, religion or socio-economic status. Get involved – who is your 1 in 4?

In the heat of summer, Torrey Pines High’s football team prepares for fall BY ROB LEDONNE Summer vacation is a time for many high school students to hit the beach, make some extra money and, above all, relax. For the members of the Torrey Pines High School football program, however, summer is mostly about gearing up for fall. Like warriors getting battle-ready, teammates prepare themselves both physically and mentally all summer long for an autumn full of games that capture the school’s and community’s attention. On this particular Tuesday, it’s 9 a.m. sharp when the members of the team arrive at the gym on the otherwise quiet campus of Torrey Pines High School. Before anyone has a chance to think, Coach Scott Ashby, a 20-year veteran of the football program at TPHS, is going through the day’s training routine and the teenagers are doing a variety of circuit workouts, whether it’s inside with weights or outside on the field. “We’re very fortunate to be part of a school where kids want to work hard, and we’re very proud of that,” Ashby ex-

Miles Ahles spots 6’7, 325-pound offensive lineman Jacob Alsadek in the weight room. RSF’s Alsadek recently verbally committed to play for the Arizona Wildcats in 2013. Photos/Rob LeDonne plains later at his office a few feet away from the gym. That work ethic could stem from the fact that football at Torrey Pines has a long and storied history. Having churned out numerous players for the National Football League, its record is distinguished in Southern California.

When Ashby first joined the football program as assistant coach (under the now-legendary Ed Burke who retired in 2007), the school won its first league title, then went on to reign supreme over El Camino for the CIF Division II title. Since then, numerous championships have followed. Now it’s all about preserving that legacy which includes buckling down during the summer, and Coach Ashby and his team wouldn’t have it any other way. “As a high school football coach, not to sound trite, but you have to be all in; this is what you do. This kids want to come out and perform (to the best of their ability),” Ashby said. “I know Torrey Pines has a good history and I wanted to be part of something big,” explained Jack Condon, a senior who has been part of the team for the past four years. “This is what it takes. It’s a lot to handle but you’re not here all day; I love coming here and lifting. Sometimes it gets tough, but I look forward to it. It’s fun.” Condon also spoke about combating a perception that most football players just simply hop on the field in the fall. “In terms of intensity, it’s pretty consistent throughout the entire year. Even during the season we have to prepare for new teams.” Coach Ashby, who says he doesn’t get tired mentally of the demands and pressure of the job, explained he “absolutely gets physically tired. Everything from training, to planning to practices, to scouting takes a bit of time. Then, during the season, it becomes a seven-day a week job. Winter break is really the first time you’re able to really relax.” Roland Wheeler, an incoming sophomore who plays junior varsity, points out the key factor that enables many want to work as hard as they do: “I feel like our team is a family. We really know each other and spend a lot of time together. We’re certainly pretty close.” Coach Ashby agrees with that sentiment: “Teaching and coaching is a very rewarding profession. Players come to you with all kinds of different issues. In my years as a teacher and coach, I think I’ve been involved with trying to help in every kind of situation.” The camaraderie of the football program is apparent in the weight room during the morning training session; teammates cheer each other on while trying to reach new lifting goals and pushing themselves a little harder, and all the while Coach Ashby is right there with simultaneous stern and positive encouragement. “This has all made me a lot more mature about every-

I manage my time better, I manage my grades better,” explained senior Andrew Maneval, concerning the impact that summer training and the football program in general has on his life. “I never know what to do with myself when the entire season finally wraps up. I find myself just sitting in the team room.” Despite a two-week, no-contact period, (implemented so as not to overwork the players and give them at least a little chunk of vacation time), both the varsity and junior varsity teams prepare pretty much the entire summer. Throughout August, the full team will meet every day of the week besides Sunday, doing everything from working out, to on-field practices, to scrimmages towards the end of the month. It all leads up to their first official game on Aug. 31 versus San Pasqual. For Coach Ashby and the team, all of the hard work becomes worthwhile when hitting the field in the fall. “The beauty of coaching is that you get to be part of people’s lives, and become totally invested in their accomplishments.” For more on Torrey Pines football, check out the web: www.tphsfootball.com/

Rudy Giuliani to be featured speaker at ‘Solutions for Change’ fundraiser Rudy Giuliani, 107th mayor of New York City (19942001), will be the featured speaker at the Sept. 22 fundraising dinner “An Evening to Remember…with Rudy Giuliani,” at La Costa Resort & Spa, Rudy Giuliani which benefits Vistabased nonprofit North County Solutions for Change. The event will include a dinner, silent and live auctions, and Giuliani’s keynote address. Solutions for Change has worked since 1999 to solve family homelessness in North County. In that time, the organization has saved taxpayers more than $28 million by helping families permanently solve their homelessness. The organization’s Solutions University program gives individuals access to the skills, knowledge, and resources they need to become and stay self-sufficient. Proceeds will benefit the Solutions for Change Finding Our Way Home initiative, whose goal is to lead 200 families and their 400 children out of homelessness within three years. “We encourage everyone in the com-

munity to attend this inspiring fundraiser,” said Solutions president and CEO Chris Megison. “This is an opportunity to hear one of the landmark leaders of our time while helping Solutions for Change solve family homelessness in North County.” Giuliani led New York City through a tumultuous and challenging time. Under his leadership, more than 640,000 people were moved from the welfare rolls to the dignity of self-sufficiency, the overall crime rate was reduced 56 percent and the murder rate declined by two-thirds. Giuliani is widely acknowledged for extraordinary leadership when the city confronted its greatest challenge—the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001. Last year, Solutions for Change’s fundraiser featured keynote speaker Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State (2005-2009) and distinguished Stanford University professor. “People are still talking about last year’s An Evening to Remember…with Condoleezza Rice,” said Megison. “We expect this year’s Evening to Remember to be bigger, better and even more memorable.” More information about tickets and sponsorship opportunities is available at www.SolutionsForChange.org/events or by calling (760) 941-6545 ext. 320.

CLUBHOUSE continued from page 1 $50,000 in the bank. Now there is almost $400,000. Previously the overhead was $160,225 per year, but Helen Dizio has helped slash it down to $76,000 by trimming paid personnel and various items such as the club’s multiple phone lines. The club receives a lot of its income from the Upscale Resale Shoppe downstairs, which brings in about $112,000 per year. “The Shoppe is a real success story,” Steve Dizio said. “We cleaned it up, renovated it and put more standard controls in place.” Outside events such as bar mitzvahs, weddings, Osher lecture series, Cotillion and other clubhouse rentals bring in about $52,450 per year, while club events like the garden tour generate $20,000 per year. The net income minus the present overhead is $138,450 per year. A study showed that the building is unused 69 percent of the time— it is used by the community 20 percent of the time, 6 percent by the club itself and 5 percent by rentals. For now, tireless volunteer hours take care of all

the various duties to help the club run like a business. Paid, professional management would require a general manager, a clerical person, an accountant, auditor, someone to open up the building for events or show it to clients, but there isn’t the funding to staff such management. “The bottom line is we have to find a way to keep this building or find a way to manage it without a board willing to put the time into managing it for free,” Steve Dizio said. “There’s no big line of volunteers coming up behind them. Demographically the world’s changing…Time is not as available to the present younger generation and we have to think about the club not looking backward but looking forward.” The Garden Club owns the clubhouse and there is no debt and no deed restrictions on selling. A private appraisal done in 2011 valued the building at $2,640,000. In looking at the possible solutions, selling the club wasn’t deemed a realistic option, as it would mean the Garden Club would lose its building and immeasurable community value. “I think we can afford the luxury of an empty building,” said one 40-year

Diane and Eric Dale

Garden Club member. “This is the only thing we have for the whole community. So many times when there’s been no other place to hold something, we had it here.” Many seemed to be in favor of partnering with another group, such as the RSF Association or The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. In exchange for management, the partnering group could use the facility however they wanted while still giving the Garden Club access. “The partnership concept is a win-win situation. Someone else maintains the building, we still keep the club and add more membership,” said Camille Zeleny, a Shoppe volunteer. She said it doesn’t make sense to continue on as they have been, “pulling teeth” to get the necessary volunteer hours or spending money they don’t have on a paid manager. Many liked the idea of the Association as a partner while others saw The Inn as a great potential partner. “Let them take (the building) on a special events basis,” said Louise SmithPeters, a member since 1977. “They have their own special events people that know what they’re doing, let them go after the weddings.” Others were still not sure about partnerships.

Shannon, Jacob, and Christian Carinna Prince, Brittany Reed, Alexis Beery, KaWorthen rissa Low, Zoe Low “I believe this organization is a cornerstone and landmark for Rancho Santa Fe and I think our independence is important,” said John Peck. “I don’t want to hook up with anyone.” Peck proposed increasing membership dues (currently dues are $8 a month) and bringing on a paid manager. Helen Dizio said anytime that they have brought on a paid manager it has gone downhill. “The best way to run the club is with member volunteers. The success we’ve had the last couple of years has been because of the people at this table,” she said, motioning to the board. “But we’re a very small group. The problem is (the lack of) volunteers.” Resident Jackie Blank asserted that the “person power” they need is just going to be harder to find. Blank agreed that a paid manager would be more viable because the club is not going to get the volunteers that existed in the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s. Bill Schlosser, a longtime Rancho Santa Fe resident, said that something also needs to be done about the declining membership. Membership is down to 350 and the club should do

more to reach out to new people. Resident Lois Jones said that one problem is people don’t even know how to become new members, admitting that for a long time she believed you had to be invited. Jones said so many great things have happened at the club since 2010 and they don’t want to lose that momentum. “We need to make people aware what a beautiful jewel we have and how they can participate,” Jones said.

CHIEF continued from page 1 Wellhouser said while the crime rate is still very low in Rancho Santa Fe, people need to remember to lock everything up. One positive increase the Patrol saw in the first part of 2012 was an increase in suspicious person calls, a sign that residents are being more vigilant. The Patrol recorded 67 suspicious person calls, up from 41 in the same months last year. Many of the cases involve door-to-door solicitor scams — individuals pretending to sell magazine subscriptions.

The Patrol has also seen a 6 percent reduction in traffic collisions from the same period last year. Wellhouser attributes the reduction to hard work and collaboration with the CHP on providing greater presence in areas that are problematic or get the most complaints from residents. Many of the crashes in the area are handled by the CHP, but the Patrol is called on for injury accidents. As reported in this newspaper, Wellhouser said, unfortunately, Rancho Santa Fe just had a hit and run accident on July 6 resulting in the death of 19-year-old cyclist Angel Bojorquez, who was riding home from work at Albertsons on Via de la Valle. A RSF Patrol officer was the one who discovered Bojorquez on the side of the road. The driver of the vehicle, Jin Hyuk Byun, was arrested on July 8. In the first six months, the Patrol has also conducted 118 requested security checks. “Please call us when you leave for a trip,” Wellhouser said. “We’ll check the house and make sure everything’s A-OK.” For nonemergencies, contact the RSF Patrol at 858-756-4372. For emergencies, call 911.

Patriot Profiles: ‘It’s more than just an arms-to-arms fight over here’ BY JEANNE MCKINNEY This column presents “Patriot Profiles” to provide readers insight into the lives of our country’s heroes. When a 19- year-old kid from the Midwest is carrying a rifle through the poppy fields of Afghanistan, a sweet sound is the thumpthump of an attack helicopter approaching. The aircraft is coming to support that Infantryman on the ground, who shoulders immense responsibility for his team, commander and country. The young warrior fights a different fight from what his grandfather fought in conventional wars, when it was one uniform verses the next. Today, an Infantryman is trained to seek out and destroy a lethal enemy that is hard to identify and must also foster cultural survival after that enemy is gone. “It’s more than just an arms-to-arms fight over here”, says Captain Justin Lane Jackson, who’s into his fourth deployment, currently based in Helmand Province. “In the same day that kid is carrying a rifle, he may have to facilitate the growth of the local economy, see that kids are going to school, and make sure a

population that is largely illiterate has the understanding and ability to vote for their elected leaders.” Jackson continues, “To that end the people can know exactly what they’re living for and working towards. We’re asking a generation of Marines and soldiers to do things our grandfathers didn’t have to do. The challenge for us is to adapt and be flexible.” Captain Jackson flies the skies of Afghanistan where dirt can hang in the air as thick as uncertainty. His day-to-day job is to help young Marines return home as heroes, not casualties. He’s a “Whiskey” man, proudly flying an AH-1W Super Cobra or “Whiskey” — the Marine Corps twin blade aircraft that creates a distinct rotor noise. The Cobra has two pilots and the only other space on the helicopter is reserved for ordnance – toting an impressive arsenal of guns, rockets, and missiles. “It’s built for a very narrow purpose – close air support”, states Jackson, who calls himself “eyes in the skies”

for ground troops. “Throughout all my blessed opportunities of education and training – all the money that’s been invested to get me where I’m at today – my sole purpose in my career is to support that 19-year-old kid.” Jackson didn’t wait for destiny – he created it. “I was pretty dead set I wanted to be a Navy pilot. You grow up watching Top Gun and you think how awesome it would be to do something amazing like that.” His stepfather, who had served in the Army during World War II, encouraged him to go to a service academy. It was during his sophomore year at Annapolis when Jackson saw the second twin tower fall. “We entered a year before the world changed, before everything in our country changed. You see the names of Naval Academy graduates etched in stone in Memorial Hall – men who have died in war decades ago. You have a strong sense of patriotism and pride, but you don’t

know them, don’t know their faces and their stories. After Sept. 11, it became very personal.” “A lot of guys I really respected started choosing Marine Corps verses Navy. When I saw the amount of sacrifice they were going through, deep down inside I knew my path was to become a Marine and serve my country in a time of war.” The death of a good friend and other Naval Academy graduates Jackson knew and admired made him bitter and jaded. “I made some bad decisions — got into trouble.” Even though he had turned himself in to his superiors, he was forwarded for separation all the way up to the Commandant of Midshipmen, Colonel Allen — the last say. The Colonel saw something below the surface in this wayward Midshipman. “Even though my offense was egregious, in terms of Naval Academy rules and regulations, he decided to retain me,” remembers Jackson. Now this dutiful pilot goes to work each day for the man who believed in him. Colonel Allen advanced SEE PATRIOT, PAGE 20

Israeli Olympic fencer to discuss experience at 1972 Olympics Aug. 7 in RSF As the world prepares to watch the Olympics, here in Rancho Santa Fe, residents will have the honor of hearing firsthand from one of the five Israeli Olympic survivors, Dan Alon, of the Munich Olympics in 1972. Forty years later, Dan Alon will recount his “Munich Memoir” at an event hosted by Chabad Jewish Center of RSF on Tuesday, Aug. 7, at 7 p.m. at a private RSF residence. Nothing had prepared Israeli fencer Dan Alon for what he would face when he finally qualified and made it to the Munich Olympics. Despite the years of preparation, the training and the dedication, he could not have known how a single Black September day would shatter his dreams and fracture his life. Surviving the Munich Massacre was the

beginning of Alon’s 40-year struggle to understand why he was spared, why his was not among the mangled remains of murdered Israeli Olympic athletes left on the tarmac at Feldenfurstenbruck Airport. After years of suffering, Alon found that telling his tale freed him to rejoin the living. This is that story, a story of courage, of hope, and, ultimately a story of love. This is Dan Alon’s Munich Memoir. For more information, please contact Chabad Jewish Center of RSF Lecture Series at 858-756-7571 or info@jewishRSF.com. RSVP required. Space is limited. Visit www.JewishRSF. com. An autographed copy of “Munich Memoir” will be available for purchase.

PATRIOT continued from page 19 to General Allen, the top leader of all forces in Afghanistan. “When I see him in the news, I can’t help but remember him sitting me down and setting me straight — like a scolded son — giving me the chance to make right.” Jackson has spent twoand-a-half years (to date) serving fellow Marines engaged in the daily fight. “The Marines working the Afghan soil out here definitely appreciate us being overhead. For any hellfire missile, rocket or any other piece of ordnance I’ve employed, what worries the enemy the most and motivates the Marines the most is the sound of our helicopters approaching.” Over multiple deployments, Capt. Jackson has seen many sides to the “War on Terror,” noting progress he labels “night and day.” “When I deployed to Iraq in 2008, I didn’t truly appreciate where I was operating at, because it was so quiet. In 2004-05, Al Anbar Province was the worst place in Iraq – extremely violent.” The missions accomplished in Al Anbar and other hotbeds

like Fallujah and Ramadi will live on as “remarkable” in Marine Corps history. “In 2009, we were dealing with heavy losses in the fight for Garmsir, Marjah and Sanguin in Afghanistan,” relates Jackson. There’s a different discussion today, due to the efforts of the Marines in concert with their British brothers and now-partnered Afghanistan International Security Assistance Force (ISAF). “It’s amazing to come in 2009 and now in 2012 and see the growth and change of everything in Helmand Province, where the Taliban once had a tight grip.” “In those same venues, I’m flying around making sure kids are going to school. You see thriving economies, green grass in soccer stadiums. There are still missions ahead, but the headlines aren’t the same.” More than headlines are changing. Exciting upgrades are coming for the Cobra attack aircraft. The AH-1Z Zulu will have new avionics, four blades, and more room for ordnance, but Captain Justin Lane Jackson is comfortable flying his old “Whiskey” friend. He doesn’t dwell on the risks of epic sandstorms, weeks of wind, flying an aircraft that

doesn’t glide or is minus an ejection seat. He’s focuses on techniques, tactics, and procedures that mitigate hostile threats. The Captain’s too busy looking for those Marine uniforms slogging through the poppy fields, as he thump-thumps towards them, putting the enemy on the run. The sweetest sound for Jackson is a voice from below on the radio saying, “Thank-you for showing up – you saved the day.”

BOND continued from page 1 ty members worked for nearly a year, ending in December 2009 and coming to the board with their plan in January 2010. “At that time the plan went on a hiatus because of the economic conditions, but by the late summer of 2010 we brought it back to life and actually took comprehensive planning to a school by school basis,” Noah said. “We went through a similar process at the local level, refining the plans for each of our nine school sites, as well as looking at a new middle school in the Carmel Valley area.” The planning work was completed in late 2011 and the district went to work preparing all the necessary documents with architects and construction managers,

getting more specific numbers on details and a costanalysis of the plan. “It was an exhaustive process and our reason for doing that is we know we are going to be asking for public support for a significant bond,” Noah said. “It was important we do our due diligence in that so we can take something to the voters that is defensible and fully vetted.” Some of the things the bond will pay for mark exciting changes for Carmel Valley schools. The first of which is a brand new middle school, on the land adjacent to Canyon Crest Academy. The middle school will cater to likely 1,000 students as Pacific Highlands Ranch is built out. “It will also alleviate overcrowding at Carmel Valley Middle School,” said Noah of the school which is currently at 1,500 students. “The opening of the new middle school will take Carmel Valley Middle down to 1,000 students, which is a more appropriate size.” The bond will also address Earl Warren Middle School, the second oldest facility in the district at 50plus years old. If the bond passes, the plan is for Earl Warren to be completely torn down and rebuilt (with the exception of the joint-use Solana Beach Library building) to the highest standards of green

and energy-efficient building. Like Earl Warren, Torrey Pines High has also seen some “wear and tear” at its campus, where the oldest structures are over 40 years old, built in 1971. The plan is for the oldest part of campus to receive upgrades to safety features, roofing, HVAC and technology support. The plan is for Torrey Pines to also finally get a performing arts center—it is the only one of the four high schools in the district that does not have one. Torrey Pines will also get a new gym. “The gym currently is not sufficient for the number of programs that they have,” Noah said. “In 1971 we didn’t have the number of kids involved in athletics and certainly not the numbers of women. The programs have exploded and we don’t have enough space.” The last major project in the Carmel Valley area is at Canyon Crest, which is planned to get an additional two-story classroom wing which will grow the enrollment capacity from 1,800 to 2,250. Additional projects are also planned for CCA. The Del Mar Union School District is also considering putting a bond on the November ballot and was scheduled to make its decision at its July 25 board meeting (after presstime for

this newspaper). As stated in a previous Del Mar meeting, there was some concern among the SDUHSD board about DMUSD having a competing bond measure. Noah said he shares the board’s concern about the impact a second local school bond measure will have, especially noting that Mira Costa College is expected to have a bond and there will also be two state tax initiatives on the ballot. Noah said anytime that you’re asking voters to support an increase in taxes there’s a possibility they will say “yes” to only a few or possibly “no” to everything. “When a ballot is crowded like that, that’s the thing I’m concerned about,” Noah said. “(Del Mar’s) bond did occur fairly late and it was a bit of a surprise to us.” He said there’s no way of knowing what the effect will be, positive or negative, of having both bonds on the ballot. He remains hopeful that the SDUHSD bond will be successful—a feasibility study showed a 64 percent support rate and 55 percent is needed to pass it. “I’m very, very solid in the belief that this is needed, there’s no question in my mind,” Noah said. “The question is whether it is the right time and will we be able to get the support at the polls we need to pass this.”

Two local students received their awards and met the event attendees.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Janitorial foreman Leon Davis has helped keep the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club sparkling for more than 40 years •Davis continues to love his job, wishes season were longer BY KELLEY CARLSON The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club will shine during its diamond anniversary this year, due to the efforts of Leon Davis and his janitorial crew. It was a quick turnaround between the end of the San Diego County Fair and the start of the 75th racing season — quicker than most people realize. Although the fair was over July 5, its crew and equipment were not out until July 9 — only nine days before the racing season started on July 18. Until the 9th, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club janitorial staff did some preliminary work. “We try to stay out of the fair’s way, but we get our stuff done, too,â€? said Davis, DMTC’s janitorial foreman. To get an idea of the magnitude of his job, Davis and his crew were responsible for cleaning six floors in the Stretch Run and five floors in the Clubhouse — and that’s just the grandstand. The 74-year-old Davis also had to perform maintenance on other buildings on the grounds and the infield. Then there was everything on the backside, where there are 109 restrooms alone. Among Davis’ and his crew’s specific duties were to shampoo all the carpets; strip and wax the floors; clean the tracks on the elevators; make sure the luxury suites were clean and ready to open, as well as all the mutuel windows on every floor; all the restrooms were cleaned and stocked; orders were placed for items such as paper towels, toilet paper, seat covers, several sizes of trash

Leon Davis, janitorial foreman for the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. Photo by Kelley Carlson bags and hand soap — in which the initial order was expected to total about $36,000; put in 15 copiers and 21 refrigerators throughout the offices and rooms; make sure water was plentiful, as the DMTC goes through about 300 5-gallon bottles of water a week during racing season; and make sure the roofs stayed clean. Two days after the fair ended, 12 members of the janitorial staff were working to get the DMTC in tip-top shape. As the days went on, Davis gradually called in more help and, as of July 17, all 74 employees were back on board, ready for another racing sea-

son at the seaside oval. It’s a labor of love for Davis, who began working as a janitor at the DMTC in 1969. He became a janitorial foreman in 1981, and has been overseeing all crews since 1987. Davis said working for the DMTC is one of the best jobs in the United States — high praise from a man who said he “loved every minute of the eight years, nine months and 33 days� he spent in the Army before that. “I don’t want to say Leon has been here a long, long time, but I think he was the one who showed Bing Crosby where the fairgrounds was back before we opened,� joked Joe Harper, DMTC’s president and CEO. “Really, though,� Harper continued, “Leon is one of our longest-serving and best employees. If we all had Leon’s good attitude and friendly style, the world would be a lot better off. He and his crew are here both early and late, and if it wasn’t for all the good work that they put in, things would get awful shabby awful quick. They keep this place spic and span and allow folks to focus on all its beauty.� During the racing season, Davis — a resident of Rancho Penasquitos — works seven days a week. On Opening Day, he planned to arrive at 3 a.m. and stay until about 9 at night. (Davis was interviewed before Opening Day.) “We want Opening Day to run smoothly and right,� Davis said. “Opening Day is always amazing.� The janitorial foreman and his crew keep up maintenance of all the areas during

the 37-day meet, and Davis helps out other staff members as needed. “I work for every department during the races,� he said. The crew has three scrubbers for the floors, which they go over daily, and they clean up spills as soon as they are made. One of the bizarre occurrences that happens every year that Davis just can’t quite understand — the door always gets pulled open on the sanitary napkin machines in the women’s restrooms. “They only have to spend a quarter!� he said. After racing season ends — which this year is Sept. 5 — the janitorial staff drops down to two — Davis and Jose Cruz, who cleans the executive suites, operations and group sales offices. Davis, who works year-round, will pick up and distribute the mail, and make sure everything is shipped. He also will deliver stages to the Powerhouse Community Center the first Thursday of every month for the Del Mar Foundation’s popular series of lectures and concerts. And it will be just Davis and Cruz until the end of next year’s fair. “I love my job,� said Davis, who added that the DMTC gives him energy. “If you like your job, it helps a lot. “I wish the (racing) season were longer,� he said.

Crispy-fried Bang Bang Shrimp is tossed in a spicy aioli sauce.

BY KELLEY CARLSON hile Woody’s is an established name in Newport Beach, it’s new on the scene in Solana Beach. The local restaurant is more upscale than its counterpart to the north, which often draws people straight from the shore, according to manager Rosie Zacharias. Yet it’s still laid-back and family-friendly. A couple on a date may relax in large, cushioned chairs in the wine lounge and sip on a selection from a bottle stored nearby in a floor-to-ceiling rack. The happy hour crowd — many of whom are regulars — can perch on stools in the elevated back bar and watch the restaurant activity or catch the latest sporting event on TV. A family may opt for the spacious center booth in the main dining room, which features wood floors; beach-inspired hues of blue, silver and beige; and walls with the Woody’s whale mascot and ocean-wave patterns. Out on the tiny, heated patio (where dogs are permitted) a group of four can gather around a table covered by a navy-blue umbrella and observe the action along Highway 101. Naturally, weekend nights are busiest at Woody’s Solana Beach. But happy hour is also a big draw, according to Zacharias, with popular half-priced appetizers such as the crispy-fried Bang Bang Shrimp tossed with a spicy aioli sauce, Ahi Sashimi with wasabi and pickled ginger, Filet Mignon Kebabs in a light teriyaki sauce, and Spicy Mussels served with bread to soak up the juices. “Our food is amazing — that’s what brings us to the upscale side of things,” Zacharias said. It’s primarily prepared by Chef Eddie Zamaripa, whom Zacharias described as “open-minded.” “He will go out of his way to make everyone’s experience enjoyable,” she added. Among the entrees he regularly prepares is Caribbean Sea Bass in a rum sauce; the macadamia nut-covered Halibut with papaya salsa; Asian Grilled Salmon with fresh lime juice, garlic and ginger soy sauce; Seared Ahi with a ginger shiitake soy sauce; Herb Marinated Rack of Lamb served with mint pesto; and Lobster Risotto mixed with asparagus, mushrooms and peppers New specials are introduced every two weeks, and every day has a theme.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

A net gain: Transition from tennis to volleyball pays off for CCA’s Lappe BY GIDEON RUBIN Caroline Lappe was a budding tennis star who’d already established her credentials on the club circuit before she even started high school. But the next time you see her on a tennis court, she’ll be playing for fun. The soon-to-be Canyon Crest Academy sophomore opted out of Caroline Lappe tennis while she was in middle school. She is now focusing on volleyball, and has proven herself to be a quick study. Lappe attended middle school at Francis Parker when she decided to forgo the individual-oriented game of tennis for a sport that she believed would foster more camaraderie. “I just thought it would be a lot more fun to have a team instead of playing individually,” Lappe said of her decision to switch to volleyball. The early returns suggest she made a smart choice. Lappe surprised everyone, including herself, last year making the varsity as a freshman. She projects to be a starter on a team that’s emerged as one of the area’s most consistent programs. The Ravens have won three straight Valley League championships and are two years removed from their best season, when they were San Diego Section Division III and Southern California regional runners up.

This year will be their inaugural entry into the intensely competitive Palomar League, which includes schools with larger enrollment. Lappe, who plays opposite (or right side), acknowledged that making the varsity as a freshman was a surprise. She said she’s thankful to coaches who took a chance on her. CCA coach Ariel Haas and his coaching staff are glad they took the risk. “She’s still new to the game but tennis translates really well to volleyball,” CCA coach Ariel Haas said. “She’s picked (volleyball) up really quickly and has improved significantly. She didn’t play much in the beginning, but as the season went on she played more and more.” Lappe figures to take on a much bigger role in the coming years. She’s 6-foot, hits left-handed (an advantage hitting against players who are accustomed to seeing mostly righties) and is an excellent athlete. Haas said Lappe projects to be a Division I college prospect, but acknowledged her inexperience makes it difficult to assess her upside. “She’s a ‘potential’ kid,” Haas said. “I don’t know how high her upside is because she’s still new to the game, but she’s picked it up quite quickly and she’s developed really fast.” But her skill-set, combined with her aptitude and attitude, figure to intrigue college coaches, Haas said. “She’s athletic, she’s tall and she’s quite driven,” Haas said. Her progression on the club circuit has been impressive. Lappe went from playing on the club Coast Volleyball No. 2 team last year to making the Wave Volleyball’s elite No. 1 team that went on to compete in the junior nationals this summer. The Wave team finished 29th in the nation. The transition from tennis to volleyball itself wasn’t easy, and Haas acknowledged that CCA coaches forced the issue a bit putting Lappe on the varsity, where a more advanced game is faster, and where she faced opponents who

were bigger, more athletic, and more experienced. “She was in over her head last year with the speed of the game,” Haas said. “She was forced to learn very quickly in practices and in games to keep up and she did. She’s very determined to be a great player. She’s constantly asking questions. She’s very coachable as she’s a good listener.” Lappe acknowledged that although the game of tennis is played as an individual, there was a team aspect to playing in tournaments where she established a sense of camaraderie with teammates. But she said it’s not the same as being involved in a sport that involves the precise orchestration of players who count on each other to know and accept their assigned roles. “They’re basically your family,” she said of her experience playing on high school and club volleyball teams. “(Teammates) are there for you when you have problems in volleyball and just in general. It’s really nice to have someone to talk to and get good advice.” The hardest part of the transition, however, is adjusting from a game in which mistakes and unforced errors don’t hurt anybody but yourself to the pressure of making mistakes that can impact everyone on your entire team. “That was definitely the hardest adjustment, taking the blame and fixing the mistakes so I don’t let the team down,” Lappe said. Lappe admits the decision was not an easy one. She’d already invested a lot of time developing her tennis skills, and her family had invested a lot of money on instructors. She said it wasn’t easy telling her father about her decision to change sports, but she said he was fully supportive of her. And Lappe has no regrets. “I just found volleyball to be a much more enjoyable experience,” she said. “It’s worked out a lot better than I expected. I came in really timid and nervous but everyone’s been super supportive and that’s made it a lot easier for me.”

Motherhood inspiration behind local woman’s growing clothing line BY CLAIRE HARLIN “Peace, love, trust — mom.” That’s not only the first T-shirt slogan that propelled Del Mar woman Joy Conley’s Bleu Temple clothing line into success, but it’s the premise behind the company. “It’s all about the importance of being a mom and empowering moms,” said Conley, a 46-year-old mother of two who was inspired to slap that slogan on a shirt while dealing with the emotional stress and custody issues surrounding a recent divorce. “In a divorce you think about what could be taken from you and what could change. What made me press forward was knowing I could give my kids something to look up to and be a role model even though I was changing the structure of their lives. When moms see the shirts, it makes them feel stronger and feel good about what they are doing.” Her T-shirts became a hot item two years ago in local stores such as Ooh La La, Maddie D, Fairen Del and Bella Moda. So, Conley expanded on the idea, incorporating original artwork, poems, mantras and the latest trends to create an entire line of clothing. She sought out a factory that uses organic, U.S.-made materials in Los Angeles, and assigned the name Bleu Temple, based on her favorite color and the “temple of peace” she hopes the clothing will promote in women’s lives. In only two and a half years, the company has grown its collection to more than 75 pieces of art, all drawn by Conley, on a number of jackets, tanks, tees, pants and more. It’s not only about moms anymore,

but uses words and imagery to promote inspiring ideas that any woman young or old can relate to, Conley said. Her clothing has been picked up by more than 60 stores in the U.S., as well as in Russia and South America. Several museums, including the botanical gardens in Chicago, Brooklyn and the New York City Museum of Natural History, carry her shirts as well. “The line started out as an emotional type thing for me,” said Conley. “It’s now come to be about what’s important in society, not just to moms — what’s important to people.” In addition to her original slogan, one of her most popular designs reads “Three things you can’t hide from: The sun, the moon, and the truth.” Conley’s artwork is very detailed and, being self taught, she said it has improved over the last couple of years. She doesn’t have a professional background in art — she actually worked at the Pentagon for more than a decade doing Middle Eastern intelligence work. “I’d like to say I came out of a famous art school, but I didn’t,” she said. “I just draw what I can draw and that’s how it works.” Bleu Temple’s offices are situated in the Del Mar Horse Park, where her husband works with sport horses as a professional jumper/hunter.

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Go Home Decor & Gifts brings unique style to new shop at Del Mar Highlands Town Center BY KAREN BILLING Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Go Home Decor & Gifts is bringing a funky new element to the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. The store, sandwiched in between Brazilia Skin Care and Pretty Please, specializes in unique and exotic home furnishings from around the world. The shop features reclaimed wood tables filled with items such as ceramic animals from South Africa. Dangling chandeliers are made from materials like vintage teacups, green glass telegraph lights and door plates from a company in South Carolina. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very colorful,â&#x20AC;? said owner Brenda Lurie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m kind of eclectic, not run of the mill.

Las Patronas Jewel Ball hopes to raise $1 million for charity BY LINDA HUTCHISON When in Italy, do as the Italians do, enjoy a passeggiata. No, it’s not a new pasta or panini, but a centuries-old tradition: the evening stroll.

Our donations go directly to our causes,” Murphy said. Las Patronas’ 2012 president Lisa Albanez added that, “except for some technical help, our members design and build everything. “And while working, they are also building relationships with one another. Our organization is made up of very diverse women from different professions, with different sets of talents and abilities — from artistic to fundraising. Yet we all come together and it is really a great thing. Fifty active women make it happen,” she said. In addition to preparing for the ball, the members of Las Patronas work (as volunteers, there is no paid staff) all year to raise money and award grants to worthy nonprofit organizations throughout San Diego County. The group also relies on the expertise of up to

300 past advisory members. “It’s been 66 years of work,” said Murphy. “We try to stay relevant, visit all beneficiaries. Not all are big, many are on shoestring budgets and we can make a difference. Once they receive a grant, it makes it easier for them to receive future ones.” This year’s major beneficiaries include Alpha Project for the Homeless, American Red Cross, Greater San Diego After-School All-Stars, La Jolla Historical Society, Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, San Diego Hospice, Senior Community Centers, and the Zoological Society of San Diego. In addition, 14 groups were minor beneficiaries. In recent years, modern technology has invaded the passeggiata, as younger Italians use Facebook and Twitter to plan ahead. Likewise, Las Patronas plans to carry on its tradition, but benefit from social networking. “Our goal is to raise the most money we can using all types of media,” said Albanez. “We want to forge

new partnerships with corporate sponsors, expand on existing relationships, work more closely with beneficiaries, get the word out across the county. We are steeped in tradition, and we acknowledge and appreciate that, but we’re also looking to the future to reach out to all of San Diego.”

Local resident brings his comedy skills to Mossy web videos BY KATHY DAY A phone call out of the blue from his cousin brought Justin York to California for an unusual project – creating comedy videos for YouTube for his cousin’s car dealerships. It wasn’t just any car dealer, but Jason Mossy – of the well known family’s string of dealerships – who came up with the idea. “Video is becoming so much more on the Web,” said Mossy, who is general manager of Mossy Toyota in Pacific Beach, part of the Mossy Automotive Group. “We thought it would be a way to get customers more interested in us.” Knowing that his cousin, who was living in Austin, Texas, and working at a comedy club there, had a sense of humor similar to his own, he put out the call earlier this year. “We wanted to add humor, and not be as dry as the normal stuff that other dealerships and other businesses are using online,” Mossy said. Enter York, who said he initially anticipated being here for about three months when he moved into the guest room at Mossy’s Rancho Santa Fe home. Since then, they agreed they needed more time to develop the program so York moved to Del Mar and his wife quit her job and joined him. Now he’s a full-time Mossy employee. York’s mother is a member of the Mossy family, which opened its first auto business in New Orleans in 1921 and later in Texas before coming to San Diego. York works in a small office tucked into Mossy Toyota’s parts supply room, where he dreams up ideas and does his editing. He attended the University of Georgia and then moved to Los Angeles where he took improv classes with the Improv Olympic West and Second City groups. While there he worked for a while as a viewer relations staff member for the Jay Leno show, meaning he answered calls and e-mails from the show’s fans and critics. He also had an opportunity to work with celebrity guests a bit. “But I couldn’t see myself staying in L.A. because I was the really low man on the totem pole,” York said. So back home to New Orleans he went to attend graduate school at Tulane. As an assignment for a class in entrepreneurships, he had planned to build a business model for a local comedy club similar to what he’d seen in Los Angeles. During his research he met a woman who had already done that so the project turned into writing a business plan for her and he eventually worked at her club. Then came Hurricane Katrina. “I stayed and tried to make it work,” York said, but many of his friends had left for Austin to open a comedy theater so, in May 2006, he joined them at the ColdTowne Theater where he not only performed and helped run the club but also taught at their improv center. With Austin becoming a hotspot for entertainment and comedy, he had settled in fairly well. It’s also where he met Teresa, his wife of a year and a half, while they were both doing improv. Now she is featured in some of the Mossy videos. In one, she gets up close — literally — with a new BMW 6 series car; in another,

Comedian Justin York she’s asking odd questions about a shiny new Mustang. Other videos feature just York, such as the video titled “Braking News” about the importance of getting brakes serviced. He said the title is a takeoff on a comedy skit called “Breaking News” he did in the past. York likens his style to Ian Roberts of the Upright Citizens Brigade, who was seen regularly on Conan O’Brien’s show; had roles in such films as “Anchorman” and “Talladega Nights”; and is an executive producer of Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele” sketches. While York has a few videos already on YouTube, he’s working on more to promote Mossy’s Toyota, Ford, BMW and VW dealerships, remembering all the while that he must maintain the image of a values and family-oriented company. “Online, to get attention, you need to be a little weird and absurd,” York said, adding that he always puts his humor “through a filter and remembers the brand.” Jason Mossy said that, so far, they’ve heard from a few customers who have liked what they’ve seen but the challenge now is to integrate them into the Mossy website so they attract more viewers. York said he’s having the most fun putting the “weird ones” together. Since he’s learning video techniques as he goes, some are a little more complicated. He says he’d like to add a mail section so viewers can suggest ideas and give him feedback, but he’s still building the program so that’s down the road a bit. But they have been seen at dealer conventions and viewed by some top auto execs, he added. Whether or not the video venture will be incorporated into the regular ad campaign hasn’t been broached, Mossy said. “But everything is evolving so quickly in video, we’ll see.”

New Del Mar art and skincare shop a family effort BY CLAIRE HARLIN There’s a new shop in the Del Mar Plaza that offers original artwork and homemade beauty and wellness products, and it’s about as homegrown as it can possibly be. Everything sold in Janecka, which opened on July 16, is handmade by the children of owner Elizabeth Janecka, save for a wall of hats and scarfs that she made herself. Her daughter, “B,” who is 33, and son Wesley, 31, are the masterminds behind the pottery, soaps, candles, balms, makeup and more sold at the shop, and after 10 successful years in business in Jemez Springs, New Mexico, the two art school grads have perfected and diversified their craft. The store actually began as an art gallery started on a scenic byway in Jemez Springs by the brother-sister duo after they graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. Elizabeth Janecka began incorporating wellness products after being inspired personally by the positive effects of a balm she made from essential oils and natural ingredients. “I used to suffer from eczema on my hands,” Janecka said. “I used to actually have to glue the cracks on my hands shut with wound glue, which would work until it peeled off, making the cracks even bigger.” Janecka’s daughter had given her a book about soap-making and, with that information, Janecka devised a hand balm that became the first product to fight the eczema symptoms she had for years put up with. “It didn’t cure it; Eczema isn’t curable. But it stopped the symptoms so I could carry on and do work and dishes and everything,” she said. “All the cracks and all the itching and scaling went away.” Janecka began selling the balm at her kids’ gallery, and demand for the product grew, prompting her to delve into other ointments and skin care products. Not only Janecka, but also her customers, were becoming loyal fans of the essential oils used in her all-natural products. “I once read something that said Mother Earth put everything on this Earth for us to survive, and it’s true; Everything we need is here,” she said. Janecka also got the idea to take the same color-mixing concept that Wesley utilizes with his pottery and apply that to make-up. She started buying natural minerals like zinc and titanium and adding tints (in an oxidization process) to make mineral makeup. “I gave him the color palette that I want and he mixed different colors of oxides,” she said. “That’s how you do it. It took a long time but we did it.” Janecka said some of her most popular items include a muscle and joint rub, insect repellent sticks and sunscreen. She said most of her products originated to fulfill a personal need or to help someone she knows. For example, the joint rub came to be when her son dropped a brick on his elbow and needed something to help with the pain. “He said, ‘Make me something sooth-

ing,’ and I did my research and this is what I came up with,” said Janecka. “It’s really popular with people that have chronic arthritis; It’s our No. 1 reorder item online.” Janecka said her customers tell her they trust her products because they know where they come from. “They also trust the fact that we use it ourselves,” she said. “People come in and ask ‘How many of these products do you use?’ and I say, ‘All of them.’” Wesley and B have different and complementary specialties, said Janecka. B makes the jewelry pieces, for example, and Wesley does wood work, including the shelving and cashier counter in the store. The tile tables sold in the shop are particularly special because they are a group effort of the two, Janecka said. B makes the tiles, and Wesley makes the wooden legs. “They are multi-task artists,” she said. Wesley and B still live in Jemez Springs and Janecka hopes the success of her Del Mar store will bring the relocation of all manufacturing — and her kids — to Del Mar, where she decided to move after a lovely vacation experience. “I like the small town atmosphere here,” said Janecka, who grew up in the tiny town of Moulton, Texas. “This is the fourth small town that I’ve lived in. When I was first here I thought it was so quaint and everyone was so polite. Not only did I think it was a great place to do business, but also a great place to live.” Janecka is located in the former space of the Michael Seewald Gallery in the Del Mar Plaza, located at 1555 Camino del Mar.

Marriage and Relationships

Managing emotions Dear Dr. Diana, I am a stepmother of two children (one boy, age 11, and one girl, age 8), and have my own child with my husband — she just turned 2 years old. My husband works full time and we have the children 50 percent of the time. I love my stepDr. Diana Weisskids and don’t mind takWisdom ing care of them. But sometimes, I get really tweaked by how their mom and dad (my husband) handle things with the kids. They don’t take my feelings into consideration and then we get into fights and it’s just terrible. I need to figure out how to keep these things from getting so out of control. If I just shut up and don’t say anything, then I build up resentments and I eventually explode or start snapping at my husband and the kids over small little things. Do you have any suggestions for me? — Emotional Emma Dear E.E. The most stressful situation is when you have responsibility with very little control. Do you have input with your husband when things are calm? Ideally, in blended families, the parent and stepparent discuss rules etc. in private and show a unified front to the kids. It works best usually when the biological parent lays down the law or tells the

kids what to do with the stepparent backing him or her up. It’s not unusual for a stepparent to disagree with how their partner and ex-spouse handle the kids; but if you are a primary caregiver, it especially makes sense for your feelings and thoughts to be taken into consideration. When it comes to managing your self, the first step is self-awareness — being able to observe yourself and notice what exactly tweaks you? What feelings and thoughts come up when a particular thing happens? How much does it have to do with that incident or is it that you feel you aren’t being taken seriously or that you don’t really matter. Try to talk with your husband about your feelings and concerns before you get mad. He’ll be more likely to be receptive when the winds are calm. When you feel yourself getting upset, try to pause and reflect on what buttons are being pushed. Developing the ability to observe your reactions so that you are not fully submerged in your emotion can help you to gain some perspective on what the best way to handle things is. When you feel yourself getting upset, try taking some slow deep breaths…and think of the emotion as a wave and ride it out with your breath. You can also try breathing in to the count of four and breathing out to the count of eight. Before you approach your husband about these issues try to see it from his perspective. Often divorced dads feel guilty and super concerned for the kids to the point of being a little lax on the discipline. It would also be natural and even healthy for the family to some degree for him to try to keep

the peace with his ex-wife (if there is some). For the children’s sake, less conflict between their parents will help them with the adjustment to life post-divorce. If you take your husband’s feelings into consideration before addressing your concerns with him, it will soften your approach. And he will most likely be able to hear your needs and concerns more easily. As a full-time caregiver to your children, it’s important that you take some special time for yourself on a regular basis. Taking time to exercise and spend time with friends can be good for blowing off steam and reducing stress. Just make sure that you chose friends who don’t expound on your difficulties and that offer constructive, equanimous feedback. Stepfamilies can be complicated with all the conflicting needs, feelings, and pre-existing loyalties. It’s important to take a broad lens view when looking at the whole picture.

For the lifeguards of Del Mar, a rich history and unwavering bond BY ROB LEDONNE It’s the middle of a Tuesday afternoon on busy Del Mar Beach and lifeguard Matt Becker has just received a call for medical aid. With that, he hops into a red pickup truck and lumbers his way on the sandy shore towards the 15th street surf break, slowly swerving past sandcastles and unsuspecting sunbathers. “Please move out of the way, lifeguard coming through” he announces on the PA system as people dodge the truck. It turns out a female swimmer was stung by a stingray, something not uncommon at Del Mar. Becker situates her in the vehicle and they’re off to the beach’s newly opened safety center. Becker is just one of the countless lifeguards who have patrolled the beach since the department was launched on March 1, 1965 — a few years after Del Mar became its own incorporated city. Back then, department pioneer Gardner Stevens, a veteran of Los Angeles County beaches, was in charge of just five people, all of whom were hired that May for the upcoming summer season. Today, Pat Vergne heads around 50 people, both seasonal and full time, who watch over Del Mar Beach, which can have an excess of 30,000 visitors per day. However large operations have grown in the intervening years, the tasks of lifeguarding and the bond that joins them all has remained the same. Jon Edelbrock, Del Mar’s Community Service and Lifeguard Lieutenant, has been with the department in some capacity since 1992. “At the time there’d be 500 applicants for just a few positions, it was very competitive,” he explains from the locker room at headquarters. “I never thought this would be something I’d be doing 20 years later.” What made him expand that part-time job into a lifelong passion is something often overlooked in pop culture portrayals of lifeguards: “I think the biggest misconception is that we’re just hanging out all day.” “Throughout my career, what I’ve found is that lifeguards are extremely interesting people and don’t fit the typical stereotype. They’re some of the most diverse and well-educated folks around,” notes Michael Martino, lifeguard supervisor for Silver Strand State Beach and author of the book “Lifeguards of San Diego County,” which was released in 2007 by Arcadia Publishing. “It’s not that shows

Lifeguard Cole Rogers, 18, sits atop a mobile tower at the 15th street surf break. This is his 3rd summer as part of the department. like ‘Baywatch’ did a bad job, but I’m sure it gives an unrealistic view of what we actually do. The perception is that we talk about girls or this and that, but I’ve had some great philosophical conversations in the lifeguard towers.” Since its launch 47 years ago, the department has routinely attracted the same kind of people; those with a passion for beach life and the urge to help the community, many of whom have gone to distinguished positions throughout the region and country. One of the newest recruits is Jonathan Stewart, a 19 year-old graduate of Canyon Crest Academy who has been with the department for a month so far. “It’s been great,” Stewart said. “The rookie school was pretty strenuous, but every day is new.” Dull and stressful at times, Stewart also spoke about the lifeguarding misconceptions: “It comes off as relaxed, but when there’s an emergency that all changes.” Nineteen-year-old Torrey Pines High graduate Lauren Humann notes how much employees get invested in the de-

partment: “I find myself here at the beach even when I’m not working, and it’s almost hard to relax. It’s a team thing, we rely on others a lot; I probably hang out with my fellow lifeguards more than my friends.” “When you’re in tense situations with people, you have a greater amount of respect for them,” explained Edelbrock of the partnership that forms between fellow lifeguards. “We always back each other up, and that alone creates an incredibly strong bond.” Said Martino: “Success or failure is pretty obvious. You don’t sort of get to obfuscate and say, ‘Well, we tried pretty hard to save him so pat yourself on the back.’ Because it’s similar to being a firefighter or in the military, it’s very fraternal.” Another bond the department has, albeit more unusual, is one with New Zealand natives thanks to a unique kind of exchange program. According to lifeguard Tyler Grant, every summer Del Mar sends two lifeguards to patrol New Zealand beaches and they return the favor. “When our department grew in size, we needed boat operators and it turns out New Zealand has some of the best in the world,” said Grant. “All of the boats that we use now are from New Zealand. I’ve been there myself about eight time so far.” Summer 2012 has turned out to be a notable season for the department, the centerpiece of which is the opening of their brand new safety center which was 15 years in the making. Said Edelbrock: “In the late ‘90s beach attendance increased along with our staff; we just outgrew the old building. We’re still getting used to this one.” An opening ceremony was held in June and was attended by a plethora of lifeguards from years past. A Hall of Fame was also launched this season, the brainchild of Becker; the first three inductees are Stevens, veteran lifeguard Jim Lischer and former head Grant Larson. As the tourist season continues, the lifeguards of Del Mar Beach will continue to do what they do best. Sums up Martino: “For someone who can sit in a tower and watch people all day long and then, on a moment’s notice, go out there and make a rescue... it takes a special kind of person.” For more information, check out an extensive site run by original lifeguard Jack Ross detailing the department’s history at www.delmarlifeguard.com

Ask the Plastic Surgeons By Wendell Smoot, MD, Reza Sadrian, MD, Carol Hollan, MD and John Smoot, MD Q. I’ve seen campaigns for mini facelifts that promote a quick recovery time and instant results. Can you define what the difference is between a full facelift and a mini or heavily advertised “lifestyle” lift? A. There is a distinct difference between a full facelift (which often includes a neck lift) and a mini facelift. A mini facelift is conducted under local sedation and takes from two to two-and-a-half hours to complete. A full facelift can take up to four hours but includes tightening of the under layers of the skin that results in a longer-lasting result, particularly when there is an abundant amount of skin that lacks elasticity. It is important to mention that in most mini facelift ad campaigns, it is not revealed that before and after photos of patients do not reflect additional procedures that have been performed to enhance the facial appearance, such as a neck lift or facial tightening. Our best advice is to read the fine print very carefully before considering a facelift procedure. That is not to say that a mini facelift is not a suitable option. In our office, we have developed a “Freshlift” which is not as invasive as a full facelift, but that provides our patients with a renewed, rested appearance. We recommend this procedure when patients are not ready for a full facelift nor when we feel a full facelift is necessary. We see a lot of patients in the “Baby Boomer” age range that are good candidates for this procedure. It is critical to discuss your desired outcome with your physician in order to determine which procedure is suitable for you. If you have abundant skin that needs tightening due to sun damage, ageing and stress, a full facelift with an optional neck lift, may be a better option. In technical terms, a Rhytidectomy (facelift) is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in the head and neck. A full facelift can tighten the muscles of the face and neck, revealing more youthful contours and a younger, more alert appearance. More comprehensive than other procedures such as a browlift, a facelift can improve the appearance of sagging jowls, double chin, and lessens wrinkles in the face. Incisions for a traditional full facelift are made just inside the hairline above

Your lifestyle continues here.

Wendell Smoot, MD, Reza Sadrian, MD, Carol Hollan, MD and John Smoot, MD each ear, down in front of the ear, and back up into the hairline. The surgeon then lifts and tightens the facial muscles, trims any excess fat and skin, and closes the incisions. The Freshlift (or mini facelift) is a less invasive procedure referred to as a short scar facelift that requires much smaller incisions than a full facelift. An ideal candidate for this procedure would be someone in their forties or fifties who is not quite ready for a full face and neck lift, but is starting to notice some sagging in the jowl area. Along with the advantage of a shorter scar, this surgery usually has a shorter recovery compared to a full facelift. John Smoot, MD, is Chief of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital-La Jolla, and Wendell Smoot, MD, has been voted by his peers as Top Doctor in San Diego for five consecutive years. Carol Hollan, MD, is San Diego’s first female board-certified plastic surgeon while Reza Sadrian, MD, is one of very few plastic surgeons dually certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as oral and maxillofacial surgery. The practice has over 20 years of tenure in the industry and each is individually board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Any of the physicians can provide consultations on plastic surgery procedures and/or laser and skincare treatments at their Laser and Skincare Center and can be reached at their offices on the campus of Scripps Memorial Hospital-La Jolla in the Ximed Medical Building by calling (858) 587-9850 or via the web at sandiegoplastiscurgeryclinic.com.

Local doctor uses novel business model If you’ve been to the doctor’s office lately, you might wonder why it can take so long and cost so much. Dr. Matt Kurlan explains how his new walk-in clinic in Encinitas is different. “To me, it seems ridiculous to spend more time on the paperwork than the interaction between doctor and patient.” Kurlan says he designed his new office based on his prior experience as an emergency department director. “My job was to improve efficiency and satisfaction scores. I looked at the whole process and identified what steps could be taken to streamline the experience for both patients and those providing care. I used the same approach in designing ASAP Urgent Care.” The new practice is earning 5-star reviews, although the business model is unconventional in that they do not participate in any insurance plans. “By eliminating extra paperwork, there’s more time for what’s really important — listening to the patient, making a correct diagnosis, and discussing treatment options,” Kurlan said. “And by eliminating the huge expense of processing claims, we are able to pass big savings on to our patients.” (For those patients with insurance, he provides a form with billing codes to submit for reimbursement.) “I don’t think people should have to trade off the quality of their care in order to save themselves time and money,” Kurlan said. “Our patients are in and out the door within 30 minutes, on average. For them it’s worthwhile to pay $67 to see a physician and not have to spend hours in the waiting room or worry about receiving an unexpected bill for something not covered by their co-pay.” ASAP Urgent Care is located at 519 Encinitas Blvd. in Encinitas. The practice focuses on acute medical problems that are urgent but not serious enough to warrant hospital services. They can also dispense prescriptions, such as antibiotics, in order to save you a trip to the pharmacy. For more information, visit www.asapUC.com
