BY KAREN BILLING Despite the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board’s strong message to Sprint last week that they did not want antennas on schools in the community, the city’s development services staff approved a wireless communication facility on a building at Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) on July 2. At its June 28 meeting, the board denied the 12 antennas hidden on a campus building because board members felt that the school parents weren’t properly notified and the location was not acceptable. “Prudent avoidance dictates they diligently explore other sites off the school,” said board member Laura Copic.
In April, the board wanted assurance from Sprint representative Becky Siskowski that Canyon Crest Academy parents were notified of the potential installation and also asked her to consider alternative sites off the campus buildings. Siskowski said they held a meeting on the topic on June 1 at CCA but only three people attended, all CCA students and no parents. She was told the district made the meeting known through its website. Copic said she is on the CCA website often and receives the newsletter and never saw any notice. As far as considering other alternatives, Siskowski said there weren’t any suitable options. “The San Dieguito Union High

Deciding vote set for July 25 board meeting BY KAREN BILLING The Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD) has directed staff to move forward on looking at a general obligation bond for November despite hearing that neighboring San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) has concerns about both local districts going for bonds. Del Mar is considering a GO bond for $12 per $100,000 of assessed property value while SDUHSD is considering one between $20 and $25 per $100,000. In order to go forward with the bond, the board will need a super majority vote of 4 to 1 at its July 25 board meeting. San Dieguito will make its decision at the dis-
trict’s July 26 meeting. DMUSD Trustee Comischell Rodriguez said she became concerned after having a conversation with an unnamed member of the San Dieguito Union School District board. “It was a surprise to them that we were considering a bond,” said Rodriguez. “They did not feel it was to their benefit if we had this.” San Dieguito has been considering its bond for the last three years for the election this November. The November ballot will also include a bond for Mira Costa

Vandals damaged the scoreboard at Solana Beach Little League’s Majors Field.
Vandals repeatedly strike SB Little League facilities The Solana Beach Little League facilities and property at Solana Vista Elementary School (780 Santa Victoria Solana Beach, 92075) has recently been hit by a rash of vandalism, according to Paul Gange, president of Solana Beach Little League. Gange said that about a month ago the league started seeing random acts of vandalism to its property, including some stolen ban-
ners and tagging on its tables and scorer’s bench. “A week or two later the vandals struck again with additional tagging, vandalism to our golf cart (they seem to have taken a hammer to the ignition switch), and multiple locks pried open, cut with bolt cutters or jammed with spray paint,” Gange said via email.

Solana Beach approves taxes for lighting, trail maintenance The Solana Beach City Council approved taxes for two assessment districts on June 27, one for lighting and one for maintenance of the Coastal Rail Trail (CRT). CRT tax rates are levied according to proximity to the trail and type of home. A single-family residence located within a few block from the CRT, for example, will be taxed about $20 a year, while a household living east of Interstate 5 will see a levy of about $3. The lighting maintenance district was formed to fund operation, maintenance and servicing of all lights within the city that are owned by the city or San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E). Maintenance includes repair and replacement of public light poles and fixtures, conduit repair and service calls for vandalism, accidents and normal deterioration. Most residences (about 8,600) will be taxed approximately $9 annually, while those living in the “dark sky zone” with no streetlights (473 units) will be taxed $1.62. — Claire Harlin

Solana Beach Historic Highway 101 upgrade project begins
Pacific Highlands Ranch school set for fall 2014
Solana Beach City Council broke ground June 27 for its new $7 million refurbishment of Historic Highway 101. Construction will start on July 19 and take over a year to complete. The project will create a more walkable downtown with wide sidewalks, benches, artnodes and more parking.
The Solana Beach School District has released a timeline for its seventh school, to be located in Pacific Highlands Ranch. The district hopes to open the new K-6 elementary school with a child development center in the fall of 2014. The school site is off Pacific Highlands Ranch Parkway. “This is great news that a school is coming,” said Manjeet Ranu, the Pacific Highlands Ranch representative on the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board. A naming contest for the school will be conducted in the fall. Last time the district held a naming contest was in 2004 for Solana Pacific and some of the choices included Ellie Topolovac Elementary (named for the then-superintendent of the district for 38 years), Wild Child, Solana Chocolate and Wonderful Elementary. — Karen Billing

DM school district budget approved The Del Mar Union School District Board of Trustees approved the district’s 2012-2013 budget on June 27. The district is projecting total revenues of $39,072,366 and total expenditures of $43,582,101, which represents $4.5 million in deficit spending. “I know it’s hard to accept a budget that says we’re $4.5 million deficit spending but I think we’re moving in the right direction,” Superintendent Jim Peabody said. The district has attempted to keep all cuts away from the classroom. The board has eliminated a lunch duty stipend for teachers ($16,000); teacher supply stipend ($5,000); and an extended school year principal ($8,500). Other reductions are $92,000 from district office department budgets and $200,000 in restricted maintenance. The budget revision is based on the assumption that the governor’s tax initiative will pass in November. Peabody said that if the tax initiative passes, education funding at best will be flat. However, if it fails, the department of finance estimates a mid-year $441 per student reduction. The tax initiative failure will also result in an estimated $1.9 million reduction to the reserves. “If we do pass our bond, that’s about what we will take out of the budget to pay for modernization, technology and teacher enhancement,” Peabody said. “It will go a long way to helping balance the annual budget.” The estimated increase in the 2011-12 property tax revenue is $366,346 over budget. That increase in revenue puts the deficit spending at about $2.5 million this year and brings the reserve back to the same level it was two years ago. — Karen Billing

Peabody bids fond farewell to Del Mar school district Holly McClurg takes over as new superintendent BY KAREN BILLING Last week marked the last school board meeting for Del Mar Union School District Superintendent Jim Peabody. “I thank the board for the faith they had in bringing me to the district. It was the most unbelievable way to end a 41-year career,” said Peabody. “I got to use everything I learned in my first 39 years in one way or another. There were some challenges but I did build some tremendous relationships.” Peabody was emotional in thanking his “crew,” the district staff who he said made him look good and made the district a positive place to be. “You’re the best,” he said. The board also thanked Peabody for his two years leading the district. Trustee Kristin Gibson said that Peabody New DMUSD Superintendent Holly brought much needed stability and continuity to the district and his forward-thinking progress laid McClurg with outgoing Superintendent Jim Peabody. great groundwork for the future. “I could not be happier to have my child un- Photo/Karen Billing der anyone else’s watch,” Gibson said. “I’m very sad but also very excited about new things to come.” Peabody said that he’s happy to know that the district will have continuity as “one of our own,” Dr. Holly McClurg, will be leading the charge. “There are so many students’ gifts still left to be unwrapped but we now have the tools to unwrap them, “ Peabody said, noting that the district is in a place where they can bring each child to the level of rigor they deserve and get an education where they progress to their own tempo. At the meeting, the board approved the compensatory details of McClurg’s new contact with the district. She will receive an annual salary of $158,500, with a doctoral stipend of $2,500, an automobile allowance of $400 a month and a retirement contribution of $700 a month.
Stop sign approved near Solana Highlands School BY KAREN BILLING The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board June 28 approved a new stop sign at Long Run Drive and Candela Place near Solana Highlands School in Carmel Valley. The all-way intersection has a crosswalk but no stop sign for students to safely get across the road. “It’s a safety issue for out students using the crosswalk there,” said Solana Highlands Principal Jerry Jones, who came to the meeting with 64 parent signatures in support of the stop sign. “Visibility is not very good there and cars are traveling at a high rate of speed.” Neighbors have also expressed concerns about speeding in the area and the sign could be a helpful traffic calming measure. Alyssa Sepinwall, a neighbor to the
school, said she was so happy when she heard that a stop sign was being considered at the location. “Whether it’s during school time or not, it’s very dangerous,” said Sepinwall of the all-way stop. “I cannot see and when I need to get out I just honk my horn and hope no one crashes into me.” Several people in attendance spoke in favor of the sign, although the board did receive letters against it due to emissions and noise, preferring speed bumps instead. Believing that the sign was what a majority of community members wanted, the board unanimously approved it. “I live in the area and use that street frequently and I think a stop sign would be very appropriate,” said board member Nancy Novak.
Barnes resigns from Carmel Valley Recreation Council Longtime Carmel Valley Recreation Council member Ginny Barnes recently announced her resignation from the Council. She issued the followed statement: “From the earliest days of Carmel Valley, the City has allowed developers to increase density while simultaneously reducing park space. The community, through both the Planning Board and the Recreation Council, has continued to protest the lack of appropriate recreational facilities for local needs. Now the City seeks to reclassify our open
space parks to “make up” any population-based park deficit, and to shut down input from the very people who are knowledgeable on the issue! “As many of you know, I am outraged about the City’s determination that existing City Council policies prevent recreation councils from “discussing or debating” land use issues that impact local parks, and that the Carmel Valley Recreation Council was unable to take a position on the recent One Paseo project. This is especially true given the fact that our Recreation Council has been involved in land use issues since its incep-
tion in 1988, much to the benefit of the community. “I have decided to challenge the city policies used to censure this Recreation Council, and work with the City Council to change the rules that prevent recreation councils from taking positions on relevant land use issues. “So that I may speak freely with the City and so that there is no issue or conflict with my association with the Carmel Valley Recreation Council, I hereby tender my resignation from the Council, effective immediately.” Ginny Barnes

VANDALS continued from page 1 “Each night the vandalism gets worse and last night (July 1) we got hit pretty hard. The vandals smashed our bathroom door and broke the handle and lock mechanism, broke into our batting cage and destroyed a pitching machine (approximate value of $2,500), smashed our scoreboard, smashed our display case and tipped over numerous trash cans, palm trees and picnic tables.” Gange said the damage that the vandals have caused is now estimated to be approaching $4,000 to $5,000. “The money we spend
on this comes from the funds we use to pay for our programs — so every dollar we spend is literally being robbed from our kids,” Gange said. Gange added that because the vandalism is also impacting school facilities, the district has had to spend additional funds to increase nightly security. “We know that the damage last night was inflicted between 7:30 p.m. and 8:40 p.m. (between two patrols),” Gange said. “So, neighbors on the alert may hear or see this if they are paying attention.” Local residents are encouraged to report any suspicious activity and to take photos of any vandalism incident before cleaning or

College, as well as Governor Jerry Brown’s statewide school finance tax initiative. “With four different bonds for education, there’s a concern [people] may go for the lowest, which is ours, or they might not go for any of them,” Rodriguez said. The concerns of the SDUHSD board member echo that of trustee Doug Perkins. “I have long expressed concerns of the cumulative effect of multiple ballot issues,” Perkins said. “Too many things on the ballot decreases everyone’s chance of winning at this point. We might end up competing more than we think we will be.” On June 14, the board heard a report from consultants — the Dolinka Group, True North Research and TBWB Strategies — that revealed a 67 percent feasibility that the bond would pass. The
School District and the city planner consider this option the only option,” Siskowski said. Sprint looked at co-locating on a nearby AT&T tower but it was too short, as were the 27-foot tall light standards in the parking lot. Siskowski said they also approached the Pacific Highlands Ranch Homeowners Association who were not interested and they asked about placing antennas on the parking lot solar panels, but the solar company said “no.” “I don’t think we know enough to put antennas that close to where our children are going to be for an extended period of time,” CV planning board member Christian Clews said. “We’ve never had a cell tower this close to kids at a school. You will never get my vote to put it in that wall.” Last year the board also
consultants assured the board that the crowded ballot would not have much of an impact. “I feel comfortable with how the Dolinka Group addressed the concerns about two districts running on the ballot at the same time,” trustee Kristin Gibson said. Trustee Doug Rafner agreed. “I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone that education is suffering at the state level so people are looking for other means of financing,” Rafner said. The DMUSD board wondered if the SDUHSD had heard the same information from the consultants about the ability to work together on the bond measures. The DMUSD board proposed that they hold a joint meeting before the decision has to made in July. Rafner said by working together, the districts could potentially cut down on costs and ease some of the SDUHSD board’s concerns.

Psychologist’s new book offers tips on how to unlock happiness BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@DELMARTIMES.NET
It’s not uncommon for people to experience emotion from life events, but when those emotions aren’t resolved, they can greatly shape a person’s beliefs and behavior for life. That’s much of the premise behind Solana Beach resident Peter Lambrou’s new book “Code to Joy.” A local leader in the field of psychology, and specifically self-hypnosis, Lambrou and co-author George Pratt have developed an approach to being content that seeks to recode the “blocking beliefs” that often stand between people and total happiness. “Sometimes the subconscious mind can rule the conscious mind,” said Lambrou, who specializes in hypnotherapy and psychotherapy for anxiety, phobias and weight loss. Lambrou, who studied journalism as an undergraduate, entered the field of psychology full-force, already having coauthored a book on self-hypnosis before deciding to get a degree in the field and practice clinically. The authorship opportunity arose decades ago when Lambrou attended a self-hypnosis workshop by psychologist Brian Mogul Alman, who contracted him to write the book, which focused heavily on the self-hypnosis process and Lambrou’s own path to discovering it. The 1982 book “Self-Hypnosis: The Complete Manual For Health and Self-Change” is still a best-selling classic for the publisher and has sold more than 250,000 copies over the years. Lambrou said his first book was “pivotal,” and he has since continued writing. He has authored another book on acupressure called “Instant Emotional Healing.” His new book, “Code to Joy,” is his third release. The “code” in the title refers to the thoughts and beliefs that are installed in our body that we must sometimes
change. “One must take a life-limiting belief and flip it around so that it reflects the truth,” said Lambrou. “Sometimes that comes in the form of an affirmation.” Many of the instilled beliefs that keep us from being happy are formed by “microtraumas” that occur in our childhoods, Lambrou said. “A person in early times of life doesn’t always have the context to understand certain traumatic experiences like an Peter Lambrou, Ph.D. adult would,” said Lambrou. “As adults, it’s too late to change what has been imprinted. In our early years, we get imprinted with no filter.” These “microtraumas” are not always completely )RUHZRUGE\/DUU\.LQJ tragic, but they are impressionable, he said. He shared the example of a patient who used to help her aunt The Four-Step Solution with cleaning, so her aunt gave her a quarter. Her mom, To Unlocking Your Natural however, criticized her for State Of Happiness taking money from family, and that patient later in life George Pratt, Pratt, Ph.D. Ph.D. and and Peter Peter Lambrou, Lambrou, Ph.D. Ph.D. George has trouble in business bewith John David Mann
cause she found it difficult to take money from others, and she viewed her own clients as family. He said he has also seen feelings of abandonment result from custody battles that took place in childhood, or feelings of perfectionism and inadequacy result from people who grew up in strict environments. In the book, Lambrou provides an extensive list of possible scenarios, all gathered from patients’ experiences he has compiled and observed during his decades of clinical practice. “Microtraumas are like small little cuts that occur and seem insignificant but they can really shape a person’s beliefs of themselves later on,” Lambrou said.

Life after football busier than ever for semi-retired quarterback/local resident BY KAREN BILLING His playing days may be behind him but NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia still looks like the competitor who played hard, fearless football. The local resident will cop to the “wear and tear” but is still out climbing mountains, throwing footballs, and doesn’t back down from any challenge. There’s no ink on the retirement papers just yet but he says it’s only because he hasn’t gotten around to it. “I feel like I’m retired,” said Garcia, fresh off of a boot camp workout. “I feel like it’s time to move on.” He adds with a small smile: “But it would be difficult to say no if an opportunity presented itself.” Garcia likely won’t ever stray far from the game he loves and is busier than ever in his semi-retirement. In addition to quarterbacking a young family with four kids under the age of 4, he’s also hosting clinics to shape young football players, helping players in the NFL think about what life means after the game with his company Beyond Wealth, and was recently named to an advisory board hoping to revive the United States Football League (USFL) which last saw action in 1987. Garcia will serve on the player development branch of the advisory board with Hall of Famer Fred Biletnikoff, former NFL and Chargers executive Jim Steeg, former Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens executive vice president James Bailey, and sports consultant/coach Terrell Jones. “Jeff’s extensive background and networks with professional football players will undoubtedly help carry out the USFL’s mission of helping our players live successfully and responsibly as positive citizens on and off the field,” said USFL President and CEO Jaime Cuadra. The hope is for an eight-team league to kick off their inaugural season in 2013 with 14 games and a spring season that stretches from March to June. Garcia has strong memories of the 1980s USFL, going to Oakland Invaders games and watching the advancement of future NFLers like Steve Young, Doug Flutie and Herschel Walker. “I remembered the league and I’ve always said there are too many talented football players and not enough jobs,” Garcia said, noting players stuck in practice squad limbo and third string quarterbacks who never get that opportunity to show what they can do in the heat of the battle. “Another league with the right approach, playing in a space and time that’s not competing with the NFL, I think people will embrace it if it’s in the right cities.” Being all over the country during his 12 NFL seasons, Garcia said he saw the places where people live and die football and who would support an USFL franchise. He believes the league could not only develop careers of the players, but also the coaching staff, management, scouts and more, “I think there could be something really special here,” Garcia said. While he, of course, sees an obvious partnership that could form between the USFL and NFL like baseball’s minor league system and the NBA’s D-League, Garcia said it’s important that in the beginning the league learns to stand on its own two feet without a dependence on big brother NFL. “If they show in the first four or five years that the league can catch some fire and function in a positive way, I do see a chance of the NFL getting involved,” Garcia said. Garcia can also bring a unique insight in the development of a new football league as he’s played in many of them, logging time in the CFL and UFL in addition to the NFL. “I’ve seen things that have worked and things that have not worked,” Garcia said. To remember Garcia on the field, is to think of him face bloodied without an ounce of quit: Gritty, gutty, hardnosed, harder worker. “My biggest fear in playing the game was not getting up from a hit,” Garcia said. “I always bounced up and got back to the huddle.” Garcia started his football career in the Canadian Football League, playing for the Calgary Stampeders for four years and bringing home a Grey Cup Championship in 1998. After his success in Canada, he was signed as Steve Young’s backup on the San Francisco 49ers in 1999. Grow-
Jeff Garcia (above and below) in action. ing up in Gilroy he had always been a Niners fan, wanting to emulate his idol Joe Montana and watching as Young followed successfully in his footsteps. “It was a dream come true to play for the team — to run into Candlestick Park was the greatest thrill of my life,” Garcia said. He still remembers the chills he had driving to the stadium for his first start, the fourth game into the season when Young was injured. He said in his five years at the Niners, he feels like he did the quarterback position justice. After stops with the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions, Garcia landed with the Philadelphia Eagles. It was an invigorating experience to play in Philly and in the NFC conference, where he said all the teams dislike each other and the fans even more so. He loved playing in a city where the mood of the week depends on what happens with the Eagles on Sunday. When Donovan McNabb went down with an injury, Garcia filled in on a team that was 5-5 with dismal playoff hopes. Garcia brought a spark, leading the Eagles to a 10-6 finish and making it to the second round of the playoffs. He will never forget the excitement and the way the city embraced him during his one-year contract. “The fans saw me as one of them, a blue-collar grinder, who punched the clock and gave it his best,” Garcia said. “They put my jersey on the Rocky statue.” From Philadelphia he went to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where he helped a 3-13 team the previous year win their division at 9-7. In 2009, he ended up in Oakland with the Raiders, one of his most difficult experiences in the NFL. “I really struggled to have a positive outlook because there was so much poison in the system there,” Garcia said. He asked to be released at the end of training camp, a tough decision for him because he felt that he took himself out of the game. Those first few Sundays of the season were hard for him to watch because he felt like he should’ve been out there. He would play again in 2010 for the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL (United Football League) “just because I loved the game and wanted to play football” and considered himself done until the Houston Texans came calling in 2011 for him to serve as a backup for their depleted quarterback corps. He was there for the last five weeks of the season, seeing them clinch their first-ever playoff birth as a franchise. “A 41 year old out there with 20-something guys, I initially questioned ‘What am I doing here?’” Garcia said. “The more I thought about it I was truly honored that a playoff caliber team would want me to be a part of it. It showed the respect I had gained throughout the years I played.” His respected ability to have a positive influence on developing players is something he is really focusing on now,
working with players ages 10 through 23 years old. After all he has learned from the game, it only makes sense for Garcia to share what he knows to help players succeed at any level. “I love helping them realize their dreams because I feel like I’ve lived a pretty good dream and now it’s onto that next phase of my life,” Garcia said. He’s teamed up with other local coaches and become involved in leading workouts and running clinics at North County spots, such as the Gonzalez Sports Academy in Chula Vista (named for local product Adrian Gonzalez). He’s reaching out to players of all ages: He recently traveled to Las Vegas to support players on the UFL’s Locomotives and on Sunday night spoke to young Poway Pop Warner Scholar Award winners, congratulating and encouraging their focus on academic as well as athletic skills. Next month he is hosting an All-American football camp for offensive players. Registration is still open for the July 21-22 camp at Del Norte High School. While he has much to share about the game, perhaps the best lesson Garcia can teach goes way beyond fundamentals. “Nothing was ever handed to me, I had to earn it. I had to have perseverance, dedication and a will that exceeded all others, in a sense forcing people to recognize what I brought to the huddle,” Garcia said. Athletic talent will only take you so far, being successful takes a strong work ethic, drive and commitment. Part of Garcia’s endurance and drive comes from overcoming challenges that came early in his life. When he was just 7 years old, Garcia lost two of his siblings to tragic accidents within 14 months of each other. His younger brother drowned during a fishing trip and his sister fell out of the back of his father’s truck. The family relied on sports as an outlet and a crutch to help them get over the devastating losses. And going through such tragedies and hardships at a young age shaped the way Garcia would forever approach his life. It didn’t teach him to be afraid or to avoid taking risks but instead taught him to embrace every moment. “I experienced the worst things you could ever imagine at a young age,” Garcia said. “I realized life is a precious, precious thing and to really take advantage of every day because you never know when if can be taken from you.” Garcia’s interest in being a mentor and sharing life and football lessons with young players also brought about his Beyond Wealth management business, which he started a year ago. As a player who has “walked the walk” he wants to reach back and help open young NFL athlete’s eyes to what See GARCIA, page 15

Local man releases thought-provoking fiction thriller Rick Emmerson donates earnings to three charities
About Rick Emmerson • Known for founding research companies that produced economic and demographic models used throughout the 1970s and 1980s by SANDAG, San Diego County, SDG&E and the State of California to forecast economic growth • Studied under Nobel Prize winner Dan McFadden at UC Berkeley • Ph.D. in economics from UC Santa Barbara (graduated first in class) • Founded PriMetrica, a leading international online research company
BY CLAIRE HARLIN
Would it be realistic for us to go back to nature and live off the land? Will the world run out of resources? Is there a universal consciousness? What makes people good and what makes them bad? Are institutions necessary in leading mankind in the right direction? What would the world be like if our structured institutions fail? These are only some of the philosophical questions raised in Del Mar resident Rick Emmerson’s new action novel, “The Bear Guardian.” This may seem dense for a fiction thriller, but Emmerson, 68, will be the first to tell you that the book is a fun, easy read. And he should know — for decades the former economist published technical articles on economics, so this exciting retirement project was a breath of fresh air. “The book explores what is true human nature, among other philosophical questions, but it’s not in a hit-you-over-the-head academic way,” said Emmerson, who has lived in the area since 1971. “It’s all just woven into the story, and the reader can think more deeply if they want. It’s thought-proving, not just a suspense novel.” “The Bear Guardian” is about a covert government plot that involves sending a team of researchers from Sorrento Valley into the Congo and duping them into thinking they are testing a drug designed to tame violent human behavior. In reality, the government agency is looking to alter the nature of the team’s bonobo test subjects in an effort to suppress a subversive movement of people who live
Rick Emmerson off the land in large numbers. The book has a few local scenes, with some parts taking place at Market Restaurant, located at 3702 Via de la Valle. The adversary group in the book, which was seen as threat to government, embodies much of Emmerson’s personal values and beliefs. “They believe one should work hard to act in harmony and create comfort for all living things on Earth. They are a benign group, not a cult or having a religious background, and they are all-inclusive,” he said. Although it doesn’t say so in the book, Emmerson said he identifies with atheism, and finds spiritual comfort in being awed by nature and loving life. “The face that I’m here at all; I feel lucky to be here,” he said. “I’m comforted to be part of life. That’s my spiritual center and that was bound to come out in the book somehow.” While Emmerson is holding an
upcoming lecture and signing on Aug. 2 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Del Mar Library, he’s not interested in book sales. He’s actually not even making a dime off the book. He has chosen three charities that directly relate to the themes of the book — conservation, healthcare abroad and animal rights — and every dollar supports those causes. These charities are Direct Relief International, World Wildlife Fund and Best Friends Animal Society. “It’s for a good cause, and I spend a lot of money on charities anyway,” said Emmerson, who self-published the book out of his own pocket. “More than any commercial interests, I’m interested in people reading it and thinking about it.” The book is available on amazon. com, and a free eBook download is also available at www.thebearguardian.com.

Also voice your opinion at Letters to the Editor/Opinion carmelvalleyvoices.com; delmarvoices.com; solanabeachvoices.com Stop spending on unnecessary The Investigator government planning Jon Benet Ramsey case What is the real reason for downtown Del Mar revitalization? It must have been a top/down desire of the City because there was no outcry for revitalization from the residents. It is money! It all began several years ago when Councilmen Hilliard and Earnest gave a report to the City that the City was going broke – we were destitute! (Even though the city has the highest reserves in the County, has bought the Shores Property, built a new sewer pump station with basketball half court, a new lifeguard station, is rebuilding a bridge, etc.) And the only place to get more revenue was from the commercial area. So, they started by spending a lot of time (one and a half years) and money (we were broke) on the newest ideas from the League of Calif Cities – horizontal zoning and form-based code development. As usual, government plans died! But, lo and behold, we had more money, so at the encouragement of the government sector of Del Mar residents, the city has taken on a very-expedited task of preparing an onerous specific plan to put more controls on commercial development, if developers will use the incentives offered to fundamentally change Del Mar forever! Del Mar takes in enough money – we just need to stop spending it on unneeded government planning. Ralph Peck Del Mar

Each Thursday since July 2011, Sharyn has welcomed the club with a beaming smile, birthday hats for those celebrating a special day, songs to serenade the guests and leadership to steer the club towards serving more people and reaching more of the community. Her presidency will be one to remember and celebrate. On behalf of the entire club and those we touch, we thank you Sharyn!

Val grew up in Los Angeles and moved to San Diego to finish school at SDSU. She started her business, State Farm Insurance in 1980, which is located in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. When Val joined the Rotary Club of Del Mar in April 2009, she quickly took up duties as the co-chair of the club’s inaugural Chili and Quackers community event and fundraiser. The event will celebrate its third year this October at the Powerhouse Park. Val says, “I’d like to see the Del Mar Rotary Club get more involved in the community this year through workSee ROTARIANS, page 16
This column, which is written by investigator RW “Pete” Peterson, will discuss issues and cases related to investigations and investigative services, and will appear about once a month in this newspaper.
BY RW “PETE” PETERSON The Jon Benet case is the most frustrating case of my career and I refuse to discuss the case with people who aren’t very knowledgeable of it because it just gets my blood pressure up. RW “Pete” Peterson I have spent years on it and am still working on it. I have many boxes full of files on this case and have spent a lot of sleepless nights on it. I’ve traveled thousands of miles following up on leads. My involvement began when we were retained by a Boulder, Colo., doctor to investigate an assault on his adolescent daughter. The client was out of town on business and his wife and daughter were home alone. They had set the house alarm after returning home at approximately 7 p.m. The alarm had not been set prior to them coming home. At approximately 11:30 p.m., the mother was awakened by sounds in the daughter’s adjoining room. She went to investigate and was bumped by an intruder who brushed by and went out a screen door over a porch roof. He jumped to the ground and disappeared. When police were called the same detective who was first responder at the Ramsey house, Linda Arndt, showed up. The parents were not impressed with the way the case was handled and had to insist that the police should dust for prints. The daughter stated that the intruder woke her up with a hand over her mouth while touching her genitals with the other hand. He called her by name and told her to shut up or her would kill her. (Her name was on her wall in large wooden lettering and he may have been able to read it in the limited ambient light.) This case happened approximately six
months after the Jon Benet murder and had similarities. One of the things we developed was that our client’s daughter and Jon Benet had attended the same dance studio. Our client felt that it would be productive to look for more similarities between the two cases. The Boulder Police Department (PD) was only fixated on the parents in the Jon Benet case and would not listen to anything else. One of their lead “detectives” wrote a book accusing John and Patsy after he left the department in disgrace. This detective was “wet behind the ears” and had never worked a homicide in his life. I debated him on national TV and he was flustered and clueless (literally). Boulder PD hunkered down in a turf war and would not accept outside help. They saw this as their biggest case and were more interested in keeping it to themselves than solving it. I took a lot of heat from the Denver and national media types who were convinced that “the parents must have done it.” The D.A.’s office was at odds with the PD and brought in a terrific homicide detective named Lou Schmidt. I was shocked when he agreed with my assessment that the parents were not involved. He was the only light in a very dim-witted bunch of law enforcement investigators. The Boulder PD stonewalled and did everything possible to limit what the DA’s office could do. I believe that Boulder PD did not want to see it solved if they couldn’t do it. They did not want to be outshone. This case took us as far away as Nantucket Island following leads and suspects. We are still focused on two people in this case. There is partial (contaminated) DNA in this case and with the advances in the study of DNA very soon we will see much more specific identifiers as to race, gender, age, eye and hair color and who knows what else. We have two people that we’re focused on and I believe that this case will be solved. RW “Pete” Peterson has operated his investigative firm for 30-plus years.

Del Mar resident wins American Taekwondo Association World Championship title BY KAREN BILLING Del Mar resident Joe Lewis, 51, recently won a first place title at the American Taekwondo Association’s World Championships Tournament in Little Rock, Ark. Lewis, a first degree black belt, competed against nine other finalists in the age 50-59 ring. “It was hard,” Lewis said of the competition. “It was difficult but very rewarding.” Lewis was one of the 5,000 competitors who traveled to Little Rock for the annual ATA World Championships, which is a week- long celebration of Taekwondo. This year’s event drew more than 20,000 martial art students, instructors and fans from nearly 20 countries for specialty training seminars, high rank belt testing and World Champion competition. Lewis has been training in Taekwondo on and off for the last 20 years and didn’t start to get more serious about it until three years ago. He currently trains at Church’s ATA Martial Arts in San Diego. The title was his biggest accomplishment in the sport and was made even more meaningful as he beat a man from Texas who had beat him three times before. “He was ranked number one in the world and I was ranked second, but I was able to beat him,” Lewis said, Lewis will now move up and compete at the second and third degree black belt level, giving him a new crop of competitors to challenge.

Cygnet stages ‘Man of La Mancha’ this summer Cygnet Theatre’s Season 10 opens with “Man of La Mancha” starring Sean Murray as Miguel de Cervantes, July 5-Aug. 26 in Old Town. “La Mancha” tells the story of Cervantes, a failed author, actor, soldier and tax collector awaiting trial by the Spanish Inquisition. His desperate attempt to prevent attacking fellow prisoners from destroying his novel leads to a unique agreement: Cervantes is permitted to act out the story within the novel, and the prisoners will decide if the tale is worthy of saving. What follows is a play within a play of a delusional man who believes himself to be the noble knight, Don Quixote. Showtimes: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday/Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday, 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday, 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday. Box office: Old Town Theatre, 4040 Twiggs St. (619) 337-1525. cygnettheatre. com.
GARCIA continued from page 12 they’re about to go through and the opportunities they need to take advantage of when they’re going through it. “I want to help them create opportunities for career number two because the game will not last forever,” said Garcia. In the highly competitive NFL, a career can end at any time and can last one year or 10 years. The key is preparing these young athletes for their future after the sport, and how they will responsibly make that transition into everyday life. “It’s not just building a better player on the field but building a better person in life,” Garcia said. Garcia said in his playing days, he wished he had a mentor who could help him avoid the pitfalls and mistakes that can come with being a professional athlete. So much of it is who the players surround themselves with he said —from the peo-
ple enjoying their suddenly wealthy lifestyles alongside them to the people who handle finances or legal issues. “I want them to surround themselves with great people with high integrity who will protect and direct these young men in the right way, to advise and inspire them to be great men in life, contributors in society and learn how to reach other people in a positive way,” Garcia said. To hear Garcia talk so passionately about the game and its players, it’s easy to imagine him on the sidelines with headphones replacing the helmet, leading men into battle on Sundays. He admits coaching is in his blood—his father, Bob, was a junior college football coach bringing Jeff to the game from a very young age. “My dad was the greatest coach I’ve ever been around,” Garcia said. As a 4 year old toddling on the field to being a ball boy at age 8, Garcia noticed
quickly how his dad was a father figure to his young charges and how much he gave to the team. Being a coach and a mentor sounds fantastic but it’s that “gypsy lifestyle of a coach” that deters Garcia for now. “I have a young family. I want to be home at 4:30 p.m., get the grill going and sit down and have dinner with my wife and kids, give them their baths and read to them,” Garcia said. He’s not ruling out a high school coaching position —he’s got a curious eye fixed on the future Horizon Prep high school program — but for now his huddles are strictly family-oriented. “Life is now about them and providing the best possible life for them, to be around as a dad and bring substance to our daily family life,” Garcia said.

CCA Girls’ Basketball Camp participants
CCA Girls’ Basketball Camp a hit School ended on a Friday and on the following Monday most kids are sleeping in or thinking about going to the beach or to the fair. But not a group of dedicated girls who showed up at 8:15 a.m. to attend the Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) girls’ summer basketball camp. More than 50 girls from 3rd through 12th grade worked to improve their ball handling, shooting, defense, passing, boxing out, and individual game, while learning the significance of playing team basketball in a fun, friendly environment. CIF winning Coach Terry Ryan, has coached the Canyon Crest Academy’s girls’ varsity program for nine years, and has run a summer camp since the school’s opening. This year, with the help of Coach Mike Romal, the new girls’ varsity head coach at CCA; Coach Soheil Khaleghi, the JV girls’ basketball coach at Torrey Pines; and returning veteran players: Allison Brown, Julia Brew, Kathryn Brandos, Stephanie Bieler, Olivia McGuigan, Caitlin Ryan, and Katie Twyman, the abundance of experience and basketball smarts provided the ideal learning experience for younger basketball players. The Canyon Crest Academy girls’ basketball camp challenges the girls to try new skills so that they are prepared and comfortable in game situations. While pushing their skills to the limit, the girls also have a great time participating in relay races, dribble tag, knockout, and scrimmages that allow the girls to compete, as well as make friends. Every year to end camp the girls put on a talent show that involves skits, baking, dancing, singing, joke telling, and any other talents the girls feel willing to share with their old friends and new friends. This year the Barbie dance number had a surprise appearance by Ken (Coach Ramel) and the double dutch girls dribbled and passed while jumping rope. There was much laughter from the audience watching a group of girls imitate the coaches and much screaming as the 6th graders attacked the campers with jokes and squirt guns. The girls all left with smiles on their faces and promises to see the coaches next summer.

New SDJA football coach expects his players to win, ‘do it right’ BY GIDEON RUBIN Ever since San Diego Jewish Academy launched its groundbreaking football program 10 years ago, the Lions have had their share of ups and downs. There were the early growing pains. Then the transition from 8-man football to the 11-man game. Coaches have changed and offensive schemes have been redesigned along the way. Few know more about all of that than Joseph Gurfinkiel. Gurfinkiel played for SDJA back in the 8-man days, graduating in 2006, and has worked as an assistant coach for six years since then. And so it’s fitting that when the Lions open their season on Sept. 6 with a nonleague game against Calipatria High — a game that will mark the 10-year milestone of what’s believed to be the nation’s first Jewish school to field a varsity football program — Gurfinkiel will have a prominent role. Earlier this year, SDJA named Gurfinkiel its varsity coach. He is the first Lions alumni to be named to a head coaching position in any sport. “It’s really an honor being that I played for the school and now I’m coaching,” Gurfinkiel said. “To me it’s a great honor that they can trust me and believe in me to lead the program the right way.” Gurfinkiel inherits a team that was 4-3 last season. The Lions haven’t made the playoffs since 2009, when they were 6-3. He cited player safety and instilling a strong work ethic in his players to be among his top priorities in his new role. “I expect my players to give me their best effort,” he said. Gurfinkiel played offensive line and defensive end during his playing days at SDJA, and he’ll bring the same blue collar mentality to his coaching that he developed playing in the trenches. Gurfinkiel has been a defensive coach at SDJA and said he’ll continue to emphasize the importance of playing a hard-nosed defensive game.
tions to play at the college level, rushed for 552 yards and five touchdowns on 69 carries last season. Sloan is a talented receiver who figures to be Weinstein’s favorite passing target this year. The 6-foot-2 205-pounder led the team last season with 30 receptions for 346 yards and five touchdowns. The combination of Weinstein, Danzig and Sloan should give the Lions a balanced offense that’s capable of putting up some big numbers. “It should be a very dynamic offense,” Gurfinkiel said. Posnock, a 6-1 210-pounder, is a hard-nosed defender who played half of last season with a broken arm. “He’s a run stopper,” Gurfinkiel said of Posnock. “Nobody goes through the middle when he’s out there.” As a SDJA alum, Gurfinkiel is uniquely in tune with the experience of his players attending a small school that heavily emphasizes academics. He has had years to develop a rapport with most of his players as a longtime assistant, and a middle school coach before that. Gurfinkiel said he’ll emphasize the simple but important philosophies that have guided his experience as a player and coach. “Follow the rules, do it right, and keep it clean,” he said. Gurfinkiel had a chance to play college ball at Whittier College after graduating from SDJA, but declined because of family reasons. He is currently pursuing a degree in business management at San Diego State. Gurfinkiel acknowledged that for him, taking a head coaching job at his alma mater is personal, and that he hopes to impart what it means to wear a Lions uniform to his players. “I really try to emphasize that it’s a special program and that wearing those colors to me was very special,” Gurfinkiel said. “The friends you play with now are going to be your friends for the rest of your life.”
Joseph Gurfinkiel He said the Lions will continue running a modern spread offense, a system that was designed by returning offensive coordinator Matt Moran. Gurfinkiel believes the Lions have a lot to be excited about this season. Among the team’s key returnees are quarterback Micah Weinstein, running back Jeremy Danzig, wide receiver Adam Sloan, and two-way lineman Jake Posnock. Weinstein, will be a fourth year varsity player and third year starter (he started several games as a freshman too). Gurfinkiel said he expects big things this season from Weinstein, a proficient passer with excellent aptitude who has thrived in the spread offense. Last year Weinstein threw for 1,063 yards and 10 touchdowns in four games. “This should be his coming out year,” Gurfinkiel said of Weinstein. Danzig, a powerful and swift running back with aspira-

TPHS graduate receives rave reviews for first novel Karen Thompson Walker’s ‘The Age of Miracles’ listed on Amazon.com’s ‘Top 10’ of the year list BY KATHY DAY The tale of a Del Mar girl who reportedly received a sevenfigure advance for her first novel truly qualifies as a hometown success story. On top of the monetary bump in her career, Torrey Pines High School graduate Karen Thompson Walker is Meet Karen earning rave re■ 6:30 p.m. Sunviews from day, July 15 national ■ Warwick’s, and inter7812 Girard Ave., national La Jolla critics for “The Age of Miracles,” which depicts what life might be like if the rotation of the earth suddenly slows down. Although the 32-year-old won’t disclose details about her contract with Random House, she said she was shocked when the deal was sealed because she was “bracing for disappointment.” Walker, who worked as a reporter for this newspaper before moving to New York City to study fiction writing through Columbia University’s Master of Fine Arts program nine years ago, describes the book as the story of a young girl and her family, set in the face of a global catastrophe. Even with that hanging over their heads, she said in an interview between book signings in New York last week, “I tried to capture the ordinary lives of the characters – especially Julia.” The tale is told through the voice of Julia, now a woman looking back at her memories as a 12-year-old girl in Southern California, which the author acknowledges “is set in a place a lot like Del Mar.” On the book’s website, www. theageofmiraclesbook.com, Walker answers questions about the work, including why she focused on Julia: “Julia is naturally quiet. She listens more than she speaks. She watches more than she acts.

These qualities make her a natural narrator. She reports whatever she remembers noticing – about the slowing, about her parents, about other people and she notices quite a lot. “I think the fact that Julia is an only child is also part of why she’s so observant. I’m an only child so I know the territory well.” That only child has a couple of proud parents who still live in the house where she grew up in the Del Mar Heights area. “They are super excited,” she said of their reaction to her hit novel. “They often know things (about the book) that are online before me.” Walker, now married, graduated from Torrey Pines in 1998 after attending Del Mar Hills Elementary School and Earl Warren Middle School, which she wrote in an e-mail “was kind of the setting I was picturing when I wrote the book.” But, she added in last week’s interview, while she drew on intense feelings from her own middle school memories, “all those things in the book are inventive – not from my life.” While set in a familiar place, the book draws on what she calls a “big premise.” As the 24-hour clock fails to
correct itself and the characters find the sun setting at 9 a.m. and rising at midnight, the story revolves around how their lives are changing. “It unfolds at a slightly slower pace than other apocalyptic stories,” she said. She came up with the idea for the story after the 2004 earthquake and tsunami off Indonesia when she read that the quake was so powerful that it altered the rotation of the Earth by a few microseconds. “I didn’t know that could happen,” Walker said. “It was kind of creepy.” At that point, she wrote a short story and “put it in a drawer” but, in 2007, she decided to see if she could turn it into a larger story. “For a long time I wrote only short stories,” she explained. “The light bulb went off at a certain point with this one.” Conceding that the whole idea of writing a novel was “a little mysterious, at page 30 she said she got excited because she had never written anything that long. When it was finished, she had written 250 pages. Because of her former job as a book editor with Simon & Schuster, she had knowledge about the publishing process, an

agent and editorial assistance from associates, including one editor she had worked with who helped her “understand how a story can unfold.” (According to Walker’s web site, she wrote “The Age of Miracles” in the mornings before work — “sometimes while riding the subway.”) While “Age of Miracles” has been called science fiction and speculative fiction, Walker relied mostly on her own research about the scientific basis for her story line because she “wanted it to feel real … The point of view is focused on the woman’s memories, their experiences. The book isn’t about scientists trying to solve the problem.” But she did turn to a graduate student studying astrophysics to review the book and help her iron out a few factual issues, adding that she was pleased at how much he found plausible. Although currently living in Brooklyn, Walker and her husband Casey will be moving in the fall so Casey – an El Centro native who recently finished a Ph.D. in English literature at Princeton – can enroll in the prestigious Iowa Writers’ Workshop, a two-year program leading to a Master of Fine Arts degree in creative writing. Iowa Writers’ Workshop alumni have won 17 Pulitzer Prizes. “He’s my first reader and is really a great editor,” she said via e-mail. “He is really excited about the book.” And well he should be. It will be published around the world, and Entertainment Weekly reported “the movie rights have already been optioned by River Road, and it’s easy to imagine Sofia Coppola directing.” The industry publication’s reviewer, Melissa Maerz, said Walker’s novel “perfectly captures what it’s like to be a teenager: always feeling like the world is going to end, waiting for the day when life goes back to normal, until you grow up and discover that it never really does.”
‘Age of Miracles’ ■ By Karen Thompson Walker ■ Published by Random House ■ From $14.99 in bookstores and online ■ Hardcover, ebook and audio book ■ www.theageofmiraclesbook.com ■ Walker is the recipient of the 2011 Sirenland Fellowship, as well as a Bomb Magazine fiction prize. The British newspaper, the Globe & Mail, called it a “dazzling debut,” and Amazon.com recently listed it in their top 10 books of the year so far. The New York Times reviewer wrote that Walker’s decision to “recount the unfolding catastrophe from the perspective of Julia... turns what might have been just a clever mash-up of disaster epic with sensitive young-adult, coming-of-age story into a genuinely moving tale that mixes the real and surreal, the ordinary and the extraordinary with impressive fluency and flair.” The rush into the spotlight – NPR interviews, book signings, national and international book reviews – has been a learning experience for Walker, who said she’s always been nervous about public speaking. “But I’m getting better at it.” “It’s been kind of strange — the idea that people I don’t know have read my book,” she said. But the dreams of that young Del Mar girl who always wanted to write fiction are sinking in, and she’ll be home this month for a book signing on Sunday, July 15, at 6:30 p.m., at Warwick’s in La Jolla (7812 Girard Ave.). Walker is the recipient of the 2011 Sirenland Fellowship, as well as a Bomb Magazine fiction prize.

If you happened to catch the Del Mar Independence Day Parade, hosted by the Del Mar Foundation, you might have heard the whimsical, folky tunes of local men Steve Denyes and Brendan Kremer, who make up the popular kidsâ€™ music band â€œHullabaloo.â€? The duo recently released a new CD, â€œRaise a Ruckus,â€? and they have amassed a large national following (and even bigger local one), but their Del Mar beginnings date back three decades. The two were best friends since their kindergarten year at Del Mar Heights Elementary School, and their musical bond began in 5th grade band class. Kremer played baritone and Denyes played the trombone, and in junior high the two opted for more â€œpractical instruments,â€? Denyes said, which are still part of their lives â€” guitar and drums. Denyes, still a resident of Del Mar, studied anthropology at the University of California, San Diego, but he has always pursued his passion: music. Never did he imagine a career writing and performing childrenâ€™s songs, however, until he performed at Kremerâ€™s twin daughtersâ€™ first birthday eight years ago. Brendan Kremer and Steve Denyes â€œWe were thinking it would be a onetime thing, but people loved it and wanted us to play at their kidsâ€™ parties,â€? said Denyes. â€œFor me, it turned into a career after that.â€? The name came from a favorite lyric from one of the bandâ€™s first songs, which went something like â€œskip to my loo, pigs in the bathtub, hullaballoo.â€? â€œThe name seems like a good way to describe how our music sounds,â€? said Denyes. â€œIt means lively commotion. Iâ€™d like to think at our best thatâ€™s what weâ€™re like.â€? Kremer is an executive at UCSD Medical Center and can only perform at about 15 percent of Hullabalooâ€™s concerts. However, Denyes stays busy with upward of 300 performances a year. Civic events, public libraries and private parties are a few of the places you might find him on any day of the week. The band has won eight major national awards and has been named in a number of publications, but he said the most fulfillment in his career has come from getting to write, record and play music almost daily. â€œ[The awards] are really great, but honestly for me the biggest thing is just having the ability to put on a show,â€? Denyes said. For more information and a show line-up, visit www.hullabalooband.com.
Lemonade to help children in need
Several local kids recently took time out of their busy summer to hold a lemonade stand at Fletcher Cove in Solana Beach to raise money for the children in Carretas, Mexico. According to local mother Catherine Brooks, they learned about the children through KidsGames, a summer camp held at Solana Beach Presbyterian Church (see page 16). The children in Carretas had nowhere to go and had to play in the city dump, Brooks said. In 2008, the church built a community center in Carretas. This year, local kids and parents raised money to build a sport court for the children in Carretas by holding a bake sale and car wash at the camp. â€œWe decided to do a
lemonade stand on our own to raise more money,â€? Brooks said via email. â€œWe also sold rice crispy treats. We raised $80.16.â€? Above: At the lemonade stand: Chloe, Lorelei and Noah Meunier and Sawyer, Owen and Madeline Casey. Photo courtesy of Debbie Sandler

CV resident pays tribute to beloved brother through youth foundation
La Jolla Cultural Partners
BY KATHY DAY Kristin Watkins lives every day with memories of her brother who was killed in a solo car accident in 2005 returning home after a night on the job as a chef. But she also lives every day knowing that he lives on through the foundation named for him. As the executive director of the Christopher J. Collins Foundation (CJCF), the Carmel Valley resident says she’s able to make sure he’s not forgotten by making grants that will help young people in San Diego “develop leadership and confidence through learning new skills, whether it’s athletic, artistic, or academic, through grants to local youth organizations.” Now there’s an especially meaningful gift about to be awarded: a scholarship in Chris’s name to be given through a partnership with Chef Celebration, a nonprofit which hosts a series of dinners with award-winning chefs to raise money. While a scholarship was in the Collins family’s original plans, it’s just now coming to fruition. “They grant scholarships to up-and-coming
Christopher’s sister and mother: Kristin Watkins, executive director of the Christopher J. Collins Foundation, and Lillian Collins PHOTO: ROB MCKENZIE chefs who will work in San Diego,” Watkins said, adding that the CJCF scholarship will be presented soon. “Chris would really like that.” She and her older brother grew up in the East County of San Diego, children of a Navy man who was away a lot.
“We would go on family vacations in the motor home and Chris was my only companion on those long trips,” she recalled. “I have lots of great memories.” They were great friends but different, she said. She went straight from high school to the University of
San Diego; he was an adventurous type who moved away after high school and later discovered his love of restaurants and bartending. He eventually attended the California Culinary Academy in the Bay Area and worked in San Francisco and Orange County before getting married and moving home. Watkins said they never really learned the details about his crash, but know he was driving to his home in La Mesa from the restaurant in Oceanside where he worked and probably fell asleep. “I had talked to him earlier that evening and offered for him to stay here in Carmel Valley or come for dinner,” she said. ”I beat myself up for a while.” While his family knew they wanted to do something in his memory, it was not until his memorial that drew friends from all over the country that the idea for the foundation took shape. “We all thought, ‘This is sad it takes a death to bring us together to celebrate each other,’” she said. “We talked about getting together for a golf tournament to make money and help other peo-
Grants Past recipients of Christopher J. Colllins Foundation grants: • United Through Reading • American Diabetes Association youth initiatives • San Diego Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation Adventure Camp • Pediatric Rheumatology Team, Rady Children’s Hospital • Tony Hawk San Diego Skateboard Foundation ple.” A year later they had formed a 501c3 nonprofit and held their first golf tournament in Chris’s name, raising nearly $12,000. On June 18, 129 golfers showed up for the fun at Morgan Run and more than 45 others joined in the post-tourney festivities. Each year about 80 to 85 of Chris’s friends — most of whom he touched in some way – return. “We give them a fun experience that Chris would
enjoy,” Watkins said. “It could be more of a fundraiser if we sought out (a lot of corporate) sponsors, but it would lose the atmosphere of friendship.” To date, the foundation has raised more than $150,000 from the golf tournament, sales of T-shirts and other merchandise, as well as a Family Photography Fundraiser, held each fall at the Grand Del Mar where families can come and get portraits taken. For $125, they get a 15-minute session with a professional photographer and the digital files are theirs to use for holiday cards or gifts or whatever they want. (The date yet to be set for this year’s event.) A single mother of two boys, ages 6 and 9, Watkins is not paid for her work with the organization. When she’s not promoting her brother’s memory through public relations and social media and finding ways to help children with the money they’ve raised, she works as a wedding and event planner. “We’ll be giving away money (in July),” she said. “That’s the fun part.” Visit www.christopherjcollins.org

It’s all about thin-crusts at Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria in La Jolla BY KELLEY CARLSON mici’s East Coast Pizzeria has made its way down the West Coast, with La Jolla as its first location in Southern California. Customers will find the thin, crispy pizza that is popular in cities like New York, along with pastas, salads and more. Open since the beginning of May, Amici’s La Jolla site is No. 13 for the 25-year-old chain, which is headquartered in San Mateo. And although the restaurant is based in the Bay Area, the owners bring authenticity with their East Coast roots: Peter Cooperstein’s hometown is Boston, while Mike Forter formerly called upstate New York home. They met in San Francisco and became business partners, with a goal of introducing the style of pie they loved to a different demographic. After opening a dozen Amici’s locations within a 70-mile radius of one another, the opportunity arose to establish one in La Jolla. “This is the kind of community where we’ve been most successful,” said Richard Allum, director of purchasing/marketing. “It seemed like a good fit for us.” Like the other Amici’s restaurants, the site in The Jewel is East Coast-themed. Black-andwhite photos from the Brearley Collection in Boston line the earth-toned walls of the main dining room, featuring images of athletes and celebrities such as Joe Namath, Babe Ruth and the Kennedys. There is also an open kitchen, where pizzas are created before guests’ eyes. The dough — made three days ahead of time to develop the right amount of elasticity — is hand-stretched, tossed, topped and baked for about 4 minutes at 700-degrees in a large, Italian brick oven. The pies are bubbling and

This week: ■ Amici’s Artichoke Panzanella Salad crisp when removed from the flames. They can come with simple toppings — the New York consists of mozzarella and tomato sauce — or combinations not commonly seen in California. Among the more unique are the New Haven White Clam with garlic, seasonings, olive oil and bacon; the Trentino, featuring several types of cheeses, baby spinach, red onions, pancetta (Italian bacon), herbs and Meyer lemon olive oil; and the Milano, containing mozzarella, provolone, roasted Yukon Gold potatoes, bacon, slow-roasted garlic, red-andgreen onions and red-pepper flakes. The restaurant’s enclosed terrace has fully retractable windows to allow for peoplewatching along Prospect Street, with the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego as part of the backdrop. The patio provides a glimpse of the ocean with tables shaded by umbrellas, including a community table with a fire-pit centerpiece. Besides pizza, salads are an “incredibly

One example is the Artichoke Panzanella Salad, composed of artichoke hearts, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, red onion, romaine, basil and capers and served with a red-wine vinaigrette. And the award-winning Caesar dressing is made in batches several times a day — as well as pesto — so it’s “absolutely fresh,” Allum said. The restaurant also bakes its own bread for sandwiches. But customers should note that sandwiches are only served until 3 p.m. Happy hour offers reduced prices on many of the standard items, plus beer and wine. Most of the restaurant’s items can be prepared gluten-free, with the exception of pastas and two of the pizza toppings. A specially made crust is purchased from Still Riding Pizza in Bridgeport, Conn., and prepared in a separate area in the kitchen from the rest of the food. The pizza is made on a special baking screen and sliced with a designated cutter.

NY Times bestselling author James Rollins brings his take on immortality to print and to Comic-Con BY ANTOINETTE KURITZ Once again itâ€™s summer in San Diego, and for the 42nd year in a row, from July 12 â€“ 15, what has morphed into ComicCon will bring people from all over the world to San Diego to celebrate not just comic books, TV shows and movies but a larger range of pop culture elements, such as horror, animation, anime, manga, toys, collectible card games, video games, webcomics, and fantasy novels. So what is a writer of international thrillers doing at a show like this, at a convention that will showcase all manner of costumed attendees intent on honoring the characters they love? Well, when the writer writes novels with cutting-edge scientific premises â€“ his most recent, â€œBloodline,â€? about immortality â€“ and those novels are steeped in real possibilities, those novels and that writer are Comic-Con worthy. NY Times bestselling author Jim Rollins, the author of Bloodline, took the time to answer some questions about San Diegoâ€™s signature convention and his work. With all the touring you do as an author, what draws you to Comic-Con? Iâ€™ve been going to Comic-Con for the past 16 years, back when there was only one publishing house with a booth (Del Rey Books). First and foremost, I go because there is literally nothing like a Comic-Con experience, and now with multiple publishing houses manning booths, itâ€™s a media juggernaut and a great vehicle for getting your books in front of masses of new readers. When we think of Comic-Con, we think of attendees in strange costumes. But what is Comic-Con really about? The costumes get a lot of publicity, but the core of Comic-Con is pure exuberance and excitement. Stepping onto that massive floor for the first time each year, you can feel the lightning in the air: the noise, the crowds, the crazy booths. Here is a tribe of people with thousands of different interests who share a riotous

Photo courtesy www.jamesrollins.com common bond in the joy of storytelling in all its art forms: comics, books, movies, and television. Do you feel that large events like Comic-Con help you stay in touch with your fans? Or is the camaraderie lost in the crowd? Not at all. Though the event is massive, the moments are intimate. In that chaotic zoo, that personal one-on-one connection still exists. Whether itâ€™s answering a question in a panel or shaking a hand across a signing table, those close interactions still persist. Itâ€™s the true heart of Comic-Con. When did you first come to Comic-Con and why? My first Comic-Con was in 1996. I was a new author for Del Rey Books, promoting the first book in my fantasy series under my pseudonym â€œJames Clemens.â€? I didnâ€™t know what to expectâ€”and I was blown away. Walking in there, I knew I had found my true tribe. Are there other events like this in the U.S. that you attend or is Comic-Con it for you? Iâ€™ve attended other large conferences and conventions: Dragon Con, World Con, Bouchercon, Thrillerfest. But they are pale,

small shadows of San Diego Comic-Con. Iâ€™ve said it before: there is NOTHING like Comic-Con. In your new book, Bloodline, you take readers to the edge of medicine, genetics, and technology, revealing the next evolutionary leap forward: immortality. What drew you to this topic? It came from a Time magazine cover article: 2045, the Year Man Becomes Immortal. I read that and realized thatâ€™s within our lifetime. It seemed impossible, but it sent me on a year-long investigation into the amazing and often chilling hunt for that elusive fountain of youth. What I uncovered and reveal in this book will shock most readers. In Bloodline, you put forth several premises for our immortality. How realistic are these premises? Can you see a future where man can make the choice to be immortal? After all my research, Iâ€™m convinced that we are heading into the next big leap for mankind, where the limits of longevity will be shattered. We might not achieve immortality, but we will vastly increase the average life expectancy, to such an extent that life spans will double if not triple. What do you see as the ramifications of immortality to society and to the individual? Thatâ€™s what I love exploring about this subject matter: how such scientific advancements challenge us as a species. It raises questions about who will be granted this gift (or curse) of immortality and who will not. And if you did have an infinite number of

days, how would that change your outlook on life? Would inertia or boredom set in? What about overpopulation? All of these moral questions are great fodder to explore in a novel. You are a vet by profession. What about your profession has impacted your writing? I love animals and youâ€™ll see many of them peppered throughout my novels. In this particular book, I debut a military working dog named Kane. It was great fun to explore that bond between Kane and his handler, but I also wrote scenes from Kaneâ€™s perspective, to put my readers in the paws of that war dog, to experience the world as a real dog would. What is the best advice you give to aspiring authors? Thereâ€™s the old adage: Write Every Day. And thatâ€™s true, but you should also be READING every night. There is nothing better for teaching the craft of writing than a good book. How can your fans best stay in touch with you? And you with them? My website (www.jamesrollins.com) is chocked full of information about the books and writing, but Iâ€™m also on Facebook (okay, I probably spend too much time there).

Del Mar woman launches swimwear line BY CLAIRE HARLIN EDITOR@ DELMARTIMES. NET
For Del Mar resident Ginny Kaufmann, a childhood dream and love affair with the ocean have coincided. The result? Her very own swimsuit line. At 27, it may seem as if the fashion designer is quite the young entrepreneur. But she said she’s actually jumping into the field late with her creation of GINNY Swimwear, having earned a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the University of Southern California before attending the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles.

“I’m glad I’m a little older than a lot of others starting out in the field,” said Kaufmann. “I’ve had more time think about exactly what I want to do.” What she wanted to do was create a swimwear line that’s sporty like Speedo, but chic like Victoria’s Secret. “There’s Speedo. Then there’s the more spa-like poolside, stylish look,” she said. “I was looking for something in the middle, playful sophistication.” “Playful sophistication” is the line’s motto, which Kaufmann felt embodied her goal of letting women be both comfortable and stylish at the same time. Being a pilates instructor at two local venues — JL Body Conditioning in Del Mar and Pilates People in Torrey Hills — Kaufmann values casual, sporty comfort. Her first season launch features six designs — five two-pieces and a one-piece — and she is already working on more designs for next season. She hopes to throw a few cover-ups into the mix. The line has only been available for a matter of weeks via trunk shows and word of mouth, but she said the response has already been overwhelmingly positive. “I’d say the top two things I’ve heard from people who have worn them is that they are super comfortable, that they feel like they’re not wearing anything at all, and also that they have a European edge,” Kaufmann said.

Lucky (Luke Jacobs), Ruby (Sarah Errington) and Dick (Jeffrey Scott Parsons) ham it up in â€œDames At Sea.â€? Barren Henzel
â€˜Dames at Seaâ€™ set sail at North Coast Rep
BY DIANA SAENGER What better time than summer to take a light-hearted voyage on the ocean of imagination? Thatâ€™s the course set for the musical comedy, â€œDames at Sea,â€? which docks at the intimate stage of North Coast Repertory Theatre in Solana Beach, July 5-29. â€œThe play, about a girl arriving in the Big Apple with nothing but a pair of tap shoes in her suitcase, first opened in 1968,â€? said director Rick Simas. â€œIt came from a short sketch and a one-act musical that was performed in a small theater. Thatâ€™s very different for North Coast Rep where weâ€™re taking this big huge musical and doing it in a very intimate way. Weâ€™ve never had a tapping show before, and thereâ€™s a lot of tap.â€? NCRT has gone the extra mile to ensure this show earns high marks. Tap choreographer Lisa Hopkins has been hired to work along with choreographer Susan Jordan-DeLeon, who earned her M.F.A. in Musical Theatre from San Diego State University. Simas said just like back in the 1930s when â€œDames at Seaâ€? helped lift spirits during the Great Depression, todayâ€™s audiences will find it brings joy to the tough recession we are experiencing. â€œOur show is a sweet valentine to the Busby Berkeley musicals. It has great melodic songs, wonderful dancing and is really fun.â€? Tickets: $35-$52; Box Office: (858) 481-1055 ; Website: northcoastrep.org

Itâ€™s time to go wild for National Blueberry Month The Kitchen Shrink BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN July brings bumper crops of plump, juicy indigo berries to farmers markets and u-pick fields throughout the land. Get the most from these precious purple gems while they are fresh and seasonal in July, aka National Blueberry Month. Blue Bloods Blueberries, with more than 450 species in their large family, have the distinction of being one of the few fruits native to North America, praised and enjoyed by Native Americans and settlers for hundreds of years. The former believed that the â€œGreat Spiritâ€? sent this five-pointed â€œstar berryâ€? to prevent starvation during lean times. They created pemmican, a type of â€œblueberry Jerkyâ€? to sustain them during lengthy journeys. Purple Powerhouse While Ben Franklin discovered that â€œan apple a day keeps the doctor away,â€? a serving of blueberries a day might just keep the oncologist, neurologist, cardiologist, optometrist, endocrinologist, gastroenterologist and periodontist away. A cup of low-gycemic, diabetic-friendly blueberries contains just 80 calories and almost zero fat, but a motherload of nutrients. Packed with Vitamin C, blueberries boost the immune
system, stimulate collagen production for youthful skin and maintain healthy gums. They are a good and plenty source of dietary fiber and manganese to dial-up bone health and energy. Blueberries are rock stars in antioxidant activity, thanks to the polyphenols, especially anthocyanins that give the berry its dark blue hue. These mighty warriors fend off free radicals that can cause cancer, cardiovascular disease and age-related decline. They have been shown to improve eyesight and keep gastro inflammation at bay. And since organically grown blueberries have been found to contain higher doses of antioxidants than conventionally grown ones, where possible, go organic. Recent studies have also linked blueberries to improved memory. Pick a Winner Look for blueberries that are firm, have a rich blue hue with a silvery protective gloss, and are uniform in size. Avoid unripe green pee-wees or overripe mush balls and soggy packages. Store these blue beauts in their original containers for up to a week in the fridge. Do a cold rinse when ready to eat, and comb through the batch removing stray twigs, leaves or bad berries. Pat dry and enjoy. Blueberry Fields Forever According to â€œThe Great Food Almanac,â€? if all the blueberries grown in North America in one year were spread out in a single layer, they would cover a four-lane
highway stretching from New York to Chicago. Maine is the top banana of wild blueberry production, both in North America and worldwide, while Michigan produces the most cultivated varieties. A Blueberry Walks into a Bar The multi-tasking blueberry can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, supper, snacks and desserts. Toss them in your ricotta pancakes, whole-wheat bars, oatmeal, buttermilk scones, coconut macadamia quick breads and frothy smoothies. Whip up a sweet and tart blueberry Meyer lemon syrup for French toast, waffles or crepes, or a savory blueberry balsamic sauce to drizzle on grilled wild-caught salmon or shrimp, roasted chicken, lamb chops or burgers. Do a twist on traditional salads with a sizzling Asian chicken breast tossed with blueberries, ginger and toasted cashews; or a roasted kale, red onion and blueberry blend; or a Mediterranean with feta, figs and blueberries; or a turkey Cobb tossed with avocado and blueberry vinaigrette. Try toasted quinoa, brown rice or orzo with pecans and dried blueberries. For your just desserts, do a blueberry tort with hazelnut crust, blueberry coconut cupcakes or a summery blueberry peach cobbler with blueberry cinnamon swirl ice cream. For additional recipes, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Blueberry Meyer Lemon Streusel Muffins July 11 is designated as National Blueberry Muffin Day. Hereâ€™s a divine version to enjoy any day!
