San Diego Polo Club lease process delayed Lightner says the city is waiting for a conclusion on El Camino Real realignment project

■ Breast cancer survivor shares information through lectures, support group. Page 11

BY KAREN BILLING When the San Diego Polo Club’s lease expired earlier this year, the cityowned property was supposed to go through a request for proposal (RFP) process in May in order to award a new lease on the

site. However, Mel Millstein, representative for District One Council member Sherri Lightner, said that the city’s real estate assets division has elected to put the process on hold until a conclusion is reached on the El

Camino Real re-alignment project. The city has decided to wait for a cohesive plan on the re-alignment because some of the proposed alternatives, such as the potential roundabouts, would impact the lease hold, Mill-

impact report on the El Camino Real re-alignment project, including the new bridge, is expected to be released in January 2013. (The new bridge will replace the aging bridge over El Camino Real, just after San Dieguito Road.

One Paseo still working through DEIR responses BY KAREN BILLING Marcela Escobar-Eck, representing Kilroy Realty’s One Paseo project, told the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board Aug. 23 that the group is still reviewing the comments submitted on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the mixed-use center on El Camino Real and Del Mar Heights Road. Escobar-Eck said they plan to be back to the plan-

ning board in a couple of months to provide a project update and speak to how concerns expressed during the DEIR process are being addressed. After all concerns are addressed by the applicant and the city, a final EIR will be prepared. The plan will come back to the planning board for recommended approval and will then be seen by the planning commission and City Council.

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Giro de San Diego Bike and Fitness Expo is poised to take over Solana Beach the weekend of Sept. 15-16, with events ranging from a long distance bike ride to a tasting tour of Solana Beach’s finest restaurants. The bike tour, organized by GranFondo Cycling Tours, will offer 106-, 65- and 35-mile road routes, as well as 10- to 30-mile mountain bike routes. The event promises great roads, well-stocked rest stops, beer, a gourmet lunch and a postride massage. The road bike event starts at 7 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, at San Dieguito Park, with Solana Beach Mayor Joe Kellejian, Deputy Mayor Dave Roberts and Solana Beach Chamber of

Commerce representative Daniel Powell leading the ride together on a bicycle built for three. Roberts, who has adopted five foster children into his own family, will be the grand marshal of the event, which benefits two charities focused on helping local foster youth: The San Diego Heart Gallery and Rivers of Hope. Other event VIPs include USO San Diego Wounded Warrior athletes, Paralympic athletes, and current and former pro cyclists. The bike ride underwent a change of route recently, and the event website does not yet reflect the change. Once slated for a See TOUR, Page 6

More parking coming to DM Highlands BY KAREN BILLING Del Mar Highlands Town Center is getting 96 additional parking spaces, general manager Elizabeth Schreiber reported at the Aug. 23 Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting. The new spaces are currently under construction between El Pollo Loco and Kindercare. Spaces will be added to within a foot of the Pell Property, the privately-owned lot at

the corner of the town center on Townsgate Drive and El Camino Real. Schreiber said construction is also underway on the former Red Robin restaurant, converting it to a Spanish hacienda for the new Mexican restaurant Casa Sol y Mar. Schreiber said they intend to turn over the building to the tenant on Nov. 1 and the restaurant is set to open in the spring of 2013.

During peak hours at the center, customers can also utilize two valet parking stations, located on the lower level near Burlap Restaurant and on the upper level near Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas. Both of these valet stations serve all customers of the center’s shops and restaurants. Valet parking is available near Burlap Wednesday through Sunday evenings, and at the See PARKING, Page 6

Update given on proposed residential development in Pacific Highlands Ranch

Immigrant youth get information on applying for deferred action

BY KAREN BILLING The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board heard plans for more homes in Pacific Highlands Ranch at its Aug. 23 meeting. While the plans have not yet been submitted to the city, developers Taylor Morrison and Latitude 33 wanted to ensure they started working with the planning board early in the process. The proposed residential development includes 177 homes on 26.3 acres near Rancho Santa Fe Farms Road, just east of the future Pacific Highlands Ranch Village Center. The developers were drawn to the area for its central location and its proximity to the town center. “Even though the market took a dip, this area was really good in the market and

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Only three weeks before the U.S. government announced its biggest amnesty action since the 1980s — deferred action — a group at the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church formed to help the community with citizenship and immigration issues. On Aug. 28, the North County Immigration and Citizenship Center held a meeting to advise those looking to apply for deferred action, which started on Aug. 15 and relieves lawabiding youth of deporta-

performed really well,” said April Tornillo, project manager at Taylor Morrison. The development will be single family detached homes which Randi Coopersmith, senior principal planner with Latitude 33, feels will take off in this market. The homes will be built in an“American Ranch” style, with several design products like “coastal cottage” and “craftsman.” The development will have public streets and make a strong connection to the Village Center through an access road. An affordable housing component of 32 units on five acres is also included on the piece of their property that extends to the south side of SR-56, accessed off the Rancho Santa Fe Farms frontage road.

tion, also allowing them to work legally. The application process is extensive, with some documents being hard to track down, and applicants only get one chance. Under the program, which is geared toward undocumented youth who came into the country at a young age and have been attending school, applicants can apply for a driver’s license or Social Security number if granted status — meaning it’s time to stop using a fake Social for those who have been.


“A lot of people applying ask, ‘I’ve been working under another Social Security number. Should I tell them?’ The answer is ‘yes;’ the government already knows that,” said Doug Stinson, who helped moderate the meeting. He reiterated that the program is not a step toward citizenship or permanent residence, it’s not a change in immigration law or an executive order that could change if a new president is elected.

Planning board OKs 5K fundraiser in Carmel Valley

Solana Beach holds off on proposed 10-mile benefit run

BY KAREN BILLING The Carmel Valley 5K is on its way. The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board approved the Dec. 8 race through “the prettiest part” of Carmel Valley at its Aug. 23 meeting in an 11-1 vote. The race will benefit the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF). “It sounds like a great idea,” said board member Chris Moore. “I know how challenging it is to do fundraising and this might be the kind of event that could greatly benefit DMSEF.” Katie Wilsey, a mother of four children (three of her children attend Ocean Air Elementary School) and avid runner, has volunteered to plan the race.

BY CLAIRE HARLIN The Solana Beach City Council on Aug. 22 unanimously agreed to hold off on approving permits for a 10-mile, 10,000-participant run with 20 music stages to go through the city in February. Council members like the concept, which would raise money for both the city and the recently purchased Gateway Property on the San Elijo Lagoon, but they want to revisit the idea next year.

Wilsey said the race is a way for the foundation to raise the much-needed funds to provide instructors in science, PE, technology, music and art at Del Mar Union School District schools and also involve the community in a fun, healthy way. Planning is still in the early stages, but the initial course route begins and ends at Carmel Del Mar School, taking runners and walkers down to the CVREP (Carmel Valley Restoration Enhancement Project) trail—the running and biking path off Carmel Country Road that runs near SR-56. “I run that trail twice a week and I think it’s the prettiest part of San Diego to

The California 10/20 Mile Race would be the largest of its kind in Solana Beach, and thus city officials are concerned that the projected date for the event — Feb. 17, 2013 — will conflict with ongoing construction on Highway 101. “If there’s one more thing after all our residents have gone through, it’s us who’s going to be taking the heat, not you,” said Council member Lesa Heebner, expressing concern that the

city has already been greatly inconveniencing locals and businesses due to the largescale construction. Austin-based race production company TurnKey Operations has thus far invested at least $20,000 into the event proposal, and that includes travel, consulting and a deposit to the fairgrounds. They aren’t thrilled about the decision, but they aren’t giving up. “There’s no guarantee See RUN, page 19

TPHS graduate Michael Gallagher’s first feature film, ‘Smiley,’ to open Oct. 11

Michael Gallagher (right) on the set, directing his movie, “Smiley.” “That really opened my eyes up to the possibility of having filmmaking be a career,” he said. After graduating high school, he moved to Los Angeles to be closer to the film and video industry, and soon launched his own Internet TV series, Totally Sketch, which offers short comedy episodes to online viewers each week. Since its launch in 2009, Totally Sketch has attracted more than 800,000 subscribers and 320 million views. Gallagher directed music videos and worked on various film projects before setting to work on “Smiley.” The script for the horror film was sent to him by Glasgow Phillips, who has written for the animated series “South Park” on Comedy Central. Over the next six months, Gallagher and Phillips revised the script, further developing the characters and plotline. Gallagher began working with a producer and, “I decided to put my money where my mouth was and finance the film and green light it, basically,” he said. The film was shot over a 15-and-a-half-day period in

Los Angeles, and features a mix of veteran actors, upand-comers and actors who have attracted large followings in the online video world. The starring role of Ashley is played by Caitlin Gerard, who has appeared in such films as “Magic Mike” and “The Social Network,” and also featured is veteran character actor Keith David. Online actors Shane Dawson and Toby Turner also have parts, Gallagher said. Gallagher’s parents, Michael and Elaine Gallagher of Rancho Santa Fe, who own a realty company, are thrilled by their son’s early success in the movie business. “It’s like every parent’s dream,” said Elaine Gallagher. In spite of the film’s scary topic, she said, it doesn’t dwell on graphic violence, and the pre-Halloween release date should give it a boost at the box office. “It’s really more of a whodunit mystery which I love, who is this Smiley and why is he doing this,” she said. Gallagher, who admires such directors as Steven Spielberg, Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick, is also excited at the prospect of seeing his first feature film on the big screen. “I hope audiences will not only find the film but enjoy it. I want to continue telling stories in all genres and sizes, on the Internet, or traditional film and television,” he said. To see the trailer for “Smiley,” visit www.smileymovie. com.

BY JOE TASH Anyone who sees Michael Gallagher’s new movie is unlikely to ever look at round, yellow happy face stickers in quite the same way again. “Smiley,” which opens in theaters on Oct. 11, is the first feature film directed and co-written by Gallagher, 23, a Torrey Pines High School graduate who grew up in Carmel Valley and Del Mar Heights. The horror/thriller flick features a crazed killer who wears a skin mask with a bloody, upturned half-circle for a mouth and slashes for eyes, stitched together with black sutures. “It’s really quite creepy,” said Gallagher, who now lives in Playa Del Rey in the Los Angeles area. The story is about a college student named Ashley who meets a group of Internet savvy friends. They tell her about an online urban legend — if she types a certain phrase three times, a killer named “Smiley” will appear behind anyone she is chatting with online, and dispatch them. The film delves into real-world fears about online predators and psychological themes, said Gallagher, as Ashley tries to determine if Smiley is real, or a figment of her own distraught mind. “It’s a scary time so we decided to make a scary film,” he said. Locally, the film will debut at the AMC Mission Valley cinema at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 11. In a telephone interview, Gallagher said he knew from the age of 12 that he wanted to be a filmmaker, and he often turned in video projects shot on his father’s camcorder in lieu of written essays or other assignments in school. When he was 14, he took a six-week summer course on filmmaking put on by the New York Film Academy, which was held on the back lot of Universal Studios in Los Angeles. The students were given 16-millimeter cameras and access to a pool of experienced actors, and taught all the elements of making films.

TPHS sophomore goes Over the Edge for kids with disabilities BY KAREN BILLING Carmel Valley’s Mackenzie Bath, 15, rappelled 33 floors down the Manchester Grand Hyatt downtown on Aug. 18 for the fourth annual Over the Edge event for Kids Included Together (K.I.T.), a national nonprofit based in San Diego that promotes inclusion for kids with disabilities. Mackenzie raised more than $1,100 for the organization with her rappel. Going over the edge of the building is not something you can really prepare for. “I’ve never done anything like that before and I kind of just went for it,” said Mackenzie, a Torrey Pines High School sophomore. “In the beginning, you’re on a ledge and they tell you to just lean back and that’s really scary. When you’re about halfway down it settles in that you’re doing it.” Mackenzie’s family members got a room on the 18th floor of the hotel and were stationed in the window to wave as she went by. “She got better after she saw us,” said mom Lynne. “Then we all ran out to meet her at the bottom.” Mackenzie was featured in Over the Edge’s promotional literature for the event, as the issue of inclusion is one near and dear to her heart. Her older brother Kevin has special needs and she has seen how inclusion has helped change his life. “My brother has been fortunate to be treated equally in most situations and that has made him the person that he is today: social, happy, funny and fun to be around,” Mackenzie wrote. “Being included has helped him to include everyone around him because he has felt the benefits of it.” Mackenzie is a very active participant in the Best Buddies club, which she has been involved with since her days at Carmel Valley Middle School. The program pairs regular education students with students who have special needs to foster friendships and this year, as a sophomore, she will be president of the school’s club. Her goals this year are to have one event outside of school every month, do some fund-raisers and become more involved in the county-wide Best Buddies prom. “I want to make really great matches between Best Buddies pairs and create friendships outside of just the club,” Mackenzie said. “I want to set up a strong Best Buddies club that will keep going after I’m gone.” This summer she attended a national Best Buddies leadership conference called “Inclusion Revolution” at the University of Indiana and she is excited to bring what she learned to the club. “I just learned how much Best Buddies can affect people and how much it can really do for people with disabilities,” Mackenzie said. Kevin participated in Best Buddies while he attended Torrey Pines High and Mackenzie saw the benefits first hand. “(Best Buddies) really gave him confidence to be himself around everyone and gave him really close friendships,” said Mackenzie. “A lot of kids with disabilities can feel closed off…Best Buddies really creates strong friendships. Kevin made so many good friends and when they came over to see him, his face just lit up.” Kevin graduated from Torrey Pines in 2011 and is now at Taft College in a program for special needs students that teaches

them how to live independently. Kevin is one of only 24 students in the program. “I’m really proud of him,” Mackenzie said. In addition to her busy summer climbing down buildings, becoming a better Best Buddies leader, and organizing and running an Amazing Quest summer camp to earn extra money, Mackenzie, an aspiring writer, also won the “Soulbound” short story contest on Out of 284 entries, Mackenzie’s “Best Friend, Boyfriend” received the most user votes and was hand-picked as the winner by the “Soulbound” series author Heather Brewer. As the winner, she will receive the first two books from the “Soulbound” series and the yet-to-be-published third installment with the author’s autograph. “I want to work in a publishing house as a publisher or editor and write on the side,” said Mackenzie of her future goals. Mackenzie is looking for some good TPHS volunteers for Best Buddies. To learn more and apply, visit The club meets at lunchtime on Thursdays at the lunch tables outside the gym.

Signs will be placed two weeks in advance to notify people of any street closures and the CVREP trail closure. Wilsey has met with the city’s traffic control department and also must go through the city’s special use permit process. The sole vote against the race was board member Christian Clews. His Clews Horse Ranch is located directly off the CVREP trail and he was concerned about the number of people being around and potentially scaring the horses. Wilsey assured Clews that she hopes to work with him to deal with any concerns.

A new economical, on-demand, door-to-door transportation service that connects riders in shared vehicles to shopping districts, medical appointments, or any other destination in Encinitas and part of Solana Beach, was officially launched recently at a ribbon-cutting ceremony held in Encinitas. Solana Beach Deputy Mayor Dave Roberts, an executive committee member of the North County Transit District Board of Directors, spoke at the ceremony highlighting the new transportation service for area residents. Treggon Owens, president of the Mainstreet 101 Association in Encinitas, also spoke at the kickoff event. “By being creative and thinking outside the box, we established this innovative, on-demand transit service at a great price,” Roberts said. “For only $5, passengers can travel anywhere in Encinitas and any part of Solana Beach west of Interstate 5,” he said. The Flex 374 route is a groundbreaking new service to meet the local needs of residents who need public transportation, but don’t live near a bus or train station. The FLEX Route 374 is an on-call, convenient, and inexpensive way for riders to get to shopping and other destinations in Encinitas and the western portion of Solana Beach. The service operates 4:50 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. weekdays. For $5, passengers can travel anywhere in the route’s zone. COASTER monthly pass holders are able to use the service at no additional charge; and it is half-price for seniors or customers with Medicare and disabilities. FLEX 374 passengers must make a reservation at least 30 minutes in advance by calling (855) 844-1454. More information is available online at

Board member Anne Harvey expressed concerns that the affordable housing units will have the least easy access to services at the village center as they will be separated by a freeway. She said it may make more sense to put some affordable units closer to the center.

They hope to submit the plans to the city in late September.

Local man shares story of being a POW and WWII bombardier BY CLAIRE HARLIN While he may be gloriously decorated, bearing an Air Medal, two Purple Hearts and a Presidential Unit Citation, William “Bill” Laughlin will tell you that he’s a survivor, not a hero. The resident of Carmel Valley’s Emeritus assisted living community will turn 92 on Sept. 8, but he still vividly remembers what he went through in 1944, when he was shot down from his B-24 bomber and captured in Romania as a prisoner of war. He endured a grueling five and a half months of detainment in a girls’ school in Bucharest, eating cabbage soup, sleeping in a mattress made of hay, and withstanding lice and bed bugs. But he still says he thinks he had it pretty good compared to many other World War II veterans who were shot down over Japan or Germany, or the tens of thousands who didn’t make it home at all. “It wasn’t living in the Ritz, but everything is in comparison to something else,” said Laughlin, whose children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren live in Del Mar. “Had I ended up in Japan I would have had a real rough time. Many of them were tortured, and most didn’t come back. In Germany, they didn’t have the food to feed the prisoners.” Laughlin is not only thankful to be alive to tell his story, but he’s one of a dwindling generation of WWII veterans who have lived long enough to talk first-hand about this important part of American history. That’s one of the reasons Laughlin was invited by U.S. Sen. John McCain and U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney to join them on stage for this year’s Memorial Day tribute at Balboa

William ‘Bill’ Laughlin and Donna Hall Park’s Veterans Museum. Being a former B-24 bombardier, the ceremony was particularly special for Laughlin because the heavy bomber, also called the Liberator, was designed by San Diego company Consolidated Aircraft. Laughlin’s daughter, longtime Del Mar resident Donna Hall, had read about the ceremony in the paper and called the organizers to get tickets to the event. She then mentioned that her father is a veteran and they said, “Tell us about your dad.” “They were so thrilled because the ceremony was to be held at the B-24 memorial. When they heard my dad was a B-24 bombardier, they were like, ‘Oh my gosh we have to honor this man. Can he come?” Hall said. Laughlin added, “Then they found out I had gotten shot down and I was a prisoner of war and they went ape.” The B-24’s most infamous mission was the one in which Laughlin participated — a low-level strike against Romania’s Ploiesti

oil fields, which turned into a disaster because the enemy was reportedly underestimated. The strategic operation was meant to cut off much- needed oil to the Axis powers so they couldn’t fuel their equipment. When his aircraft was shot, it lost power on one side and fell through a group of about 270 flying planes below, he said. “It’s hard to say what you think during all this,” Laughlin remembered. “You’re on fire, everybody’s trying to get out of the airplane and you think, ‘How’d I get in this position?’ You think so fast.” There were about 300 planes in the attack, with about five guys per plane, and “nobody really expected to come back,” Laughlin said, adding that he parachuted out of the plane and was “banged up pretty bad” when he hit the ground at about 20 miles per hour and landed on some large oil drums. “Thankfully everyone got out of our aircraft before it blew up,” he said. With a broken ankle and dislocated arm, he was then taken into interrogation and later into a holding room where he would stay with about 30 other men for almost six months. Men were scattered about, some hundreds of miles apart and in different countries. Men from the same plane might have ended up 15 or more miles apart, he said. “All in all, we were very fortunate to be shot down over Romania because it was the first Axis power to surrender to the Allies,” he said. “Had I been shot down a couple hundred miles away in any direction, I could have been a POW for another year. It was a dif-

He said for the duration of his confinement, he wore the same clothes he parachuted down in. Luckily, he said, there were showers, and the prisoners were therefore able to keep drowning the lice, he said. “We would have to pick the lice off of each other, and the bed bug bites were so bad and they would become infected,” he said, adding that most of the men lost anywhere from 20 to 30 pounds while in confinement. Laughlin was part of the first American forces that were liberated in Europe. He said he was released from Romania and happened to meet an American in a bomb shelter who informed him

that the U.S. government was evacuating prisoners from the Bucharest airport. After his return home, Laughlin remained in active duty and then started a career in the oil industry. Years later, he made a career switch and began producing construction materials. He was married to his wife for 66 years. The entire family showed up to support him when he was honored on Memorial Day in Balboa Park. They dressed him up and put his medals on, and he proudly sat with his family on the stage that was filled with war dignitaries and prominent officials. His daughter said she and her family were “so pleased that he could be respectfully honored.” His son-in-law, Peter Hall, described him as a humble man, “one of those great generation guys.” “We were so excited,” he said. “[Bill] was just as touched and excited about it, but he would never show it.”

Local boys create camp for SB youth BY CLAIRE HARLIN About a month and a half ago, two local teens started thinking of something they could do during the summer to help their community. Remembering how expensive it was for them to go to soccer camp as a kid, they decided to put on a free camp for youth who can’t afford it. Michael Stewart, 14, and Jason “JT” Henderson, 13, both freshmen at Torrey Pines High School, love playing soccer and their two-day camp, Goals for Kids, ended up being a fun source of learning and inspiration for about 20 kids living in the Eden Gardens area. Held on Aug. 21 and 22 at La Colonia Park, the co-ed camp focused on mechanics and gave the kids, ages 7 to 12, an opportunity

to play games and win prizes such as Jamba Juice gift cards and soccer balls. “It feels really good to get to help,” said Michael, of Carmel Valley. “We had everything given to us, so for us, it wasn’t even a second thought.” He added, “The expressions on the kids’ faces were so cool.” Jason, of Rancho Santa Fe, said one camp attendee came up to him and thanked him and said he wished the camp were longer. Michael and Jason played in the Carmel Valley Manchester league when they were younger, and Michael said he remembers being inspired by practicing with some of the older players. “It’s more meaningful for kids to teach other kids,”

he said. “That camp really helped us because they were still building their skills too.” Jason said he really got to bond with the kids, which was “really cool.” “When you are younger, you look up to the older kids,” he said. The boys, who now play for the San Diego Surf Soccer Club, said the camp was challenging because the different ages and genders of participants resulted in different playing styles, but fortunately the teens employed some of their friends to help out as volunteer camp counselors. Their helpers, all Carmel Valley residents, included: Greg Matus, 13; Gabe Gitter, 13; Jordan Karam, 14; Zari Edlin, 13; Hallie Berman, 13; Peter Copp, 14; and Larsen Schlachter, 14.

Participants and counselors of Goals for Kids culminate two days of camp at La Colonia Park in Solana Beach. In the back row, far right, are camp founders Jason ‘JT’ Henderson, 13, and Michael Stewart, 14.

Breast cancer survivor shares information through lectures, support group Author Dr. John Link will speak in Carmel Valley BY KATHY DAY After Carmel Valley resident Lynn Flanagan was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1996, she joined a support group. But when she figured out they didn’t want to talk about breast cancer and just wanted to socialize, she sought out other options. “It was a foreign concept to me to go out on a week night and be away from my kids and my husband for a social gathering,” said the mother of three who recently celebrated her 37th anniversary. The solution came at the suggestion of her oldest son, then a high school sophomore. “He told me to go set up my own group.” And that was that. She still holds monthly meetings that focus on providing information about the disease to a “sisterhood” that includes women from ages 29 to 80. Sure, said the energetic woman who was a member of the 1972 University of Notre Dame class that was the first to include women,

Lynn Flanagan they are friends and they do socialize, but the key is sharing information to help people deal with their situations. Her personal mission is to make sure the information is up to date. Each month before the meetings the voracious reader prepares folders full of articles and tidbits, sometimes even personalizing them with information about a member’s type of cancer. She dove headlong into cancer education just five months after being diagnosed. When she went back to a special reunion of her graduating class – 325 of the 6,000 graduates were women – she put on a seminar about early detection that brought out a standingroom-only crowd of men and women of all ages.

And she’s still at it 15 years later. On Sept. 24, Linked by Lynn — her support group — and Agendia, a company that makes genomic-based breast cancer diagnostic tests and aims to help healthcare professionals find more personalized ways to treat patients, are hosting John Link, M.D., for a discussion and book signing. He is the author of “The Breast Cancer Survival Manual,” now in its fifth printing. A medical oncologist who specializes in breast cancer, he founded the Orange County-based Breastlink medical group in 1995. Bringing Link to San Diego is no coincidence. He was one of the specialists Flanagan turned to when she was diagnosed with what she called a “very

tricky” type of breast cancer – invasive intralobular carcinoma. “It is very insidious and grows differently than other types,” Flanagan said in a recent interview. She had a “very wonderful” team led by Scripps Clinic physicians Michael Kosty and Vincent Massullo, who practices in Northern California now, but said she sought out Link for another point of view after reading the first edition of his book. Together, the doctors — including her surgeon Michele Carpenter, who is now director of the breast cancer program at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Orange — developed a treatment plan that included a lumpectomy, radiation, axcillary dissection and five years of Tamoxifen. When Flanagan developed her group, she chose to name it Linked by Lynn in honor of the physician she calls “a special individual.” While Kosty is still her medical oncologist – and one she speaks highly of for his knowledge and compassion — she frequently refers members of her group and others to Link and sometimes accompanies them on their visits. “I send him the rocky

Her relationship with him was cemented when he consulted on her sister-inlaw’s case even though she was in Michigan. After her death, the family asked that donations be made in her name to CancerCare, an organization that provides free support for those affected by cancer. After raising nearly $30,000, Flanagan worked with them to organize an hour-long teleconference featuring Link and four other healthcare professionals. Link, speaking recently

from his Orange County office, explained that he decided to specialize in breast cancer because he wanted “to do one disease really well and be kind of an expert. You can’t do 35 cancers well.” A Chula Vista native who attended USC on a track scholarship, he decided to attend medical school – also at USC – after his 42-year-old track coach, Willie Wilson, died of cancer.

Royal Academy dance student off to Broadway to perform in ‘Annie’ It’s every dancer’s dream to audition for a part in a major Broadway musical and get the part. The dream has come true for local dancer and actress Madi Rae DiPietro, who flies off to New York to begin rehearsals for the Broadway classic “Annie” in which she plays one of the orphans, July. More than 5,000 girls auditioned Madi Rae for only eight roles and Madi DiPietro Rae emerged successful from the huge group of hopefuls. Madi Rae has danced at the Royal Dance Academy in Carmel Valley for 11 years, beginning dance classes at the age of 2 in the “Mommy and me” classes. Francine Garton, owner and principle of the Royal Dance Academy, has taught Madi Rae for the past 11 years and said she believes she has what it takes to be a successful actress and dancer.


“You just know when someone has the ‘X factor’ and has been born with the gift to be on stage. Madi Rae has always shown that quality and has had the confidence from a very early age. She has an effervescent personality that is contagious and has a dedication and commitment to dancing, acting and singing. At the Royal Dance Academy, we are super proud of her accomplishment and she will be greatly missed, as she is a part of the RDA family and has been around since we opened 11 years ago,” Garton said. Madi Rae performed at the La Jolla Playhouse last year in “Little Miss Sunshine” and has had numerous other roles on stage and in advertisements for TV. Madi Rae has a year contract, from August 2012 to August 2013, and she will perform eight shows per week at the Palace Theatre in New York. For more information on the Royal Dance Academy, visit or 858-350-9770.

Teen Volunteer In Action chapter to hold fall kick-off event For the TVIA-SD2 (Teen Volunteer In Action) fall kick-off event this year, the organization of 179 boys will be volunteering in a hands-on philanthropic event by building beehives for a group, Via International/Los Niños, in Mexico. Please join them for a fun afternoon and learn how TVIA is a fast growing non-profit group in San Diego, dedicated to offering teen boys and their families the opportunity for personal growth through philanthropy. The event will be held on Sunday, Sept. 9, from 3-5 p.m. at Sage Canyon Elementary School (5290 Harvest Run Drive, San Diego, 92130). For more information, visit (SD-2 chapter).

continued from page 11 ticing, medical oncology was in its infancy and wasn’t even considered a sub-specialty, he said, adding that things changed dramatically about 1980 with the new drugs like tamoxifen and advances in mammography. Now, he said, “breast cancer is no longer a death sentence. The cure rate is 90 percent.” In the late ‘70s when he started practicing, he said, that number was about 55 percent. While at Memorial Medical Center in Long Beach, where he did his residency, he played a role in creating one of the first breast centers in a community hospital, became its director and decided to concentrate on the singular disease. His book, first published in 1996, was an offshoot of that center, he said. “It was pretty good – it really helped women.” The latest version has a lot of changes, he noted, because of new understanding about the genetic nature of the disease. In it, he writes, “When I see a newly diagnosed patient, I tell her the chance of


being cured (yes, cured!) is very high. You do have time to educate yourself, gather information, and even obtain a second opinion if desired. Just remember, take one step at a time.” The book includes information on types of breast cancer, understanding pathology reports, treatments, side effects, clinical trials, genetic risks, nutrition and supplements and “Becoming a Survivor.” Some women who have read it are ahead of their oncologists, he said. It’s also helpful for spouses, partners and children to read. Some patients, like Flanagan, take their knowledge a step further. “She is a very strong advocate for women with breast cancer,” Link said. Flanagan said some have called her their “angel bulldog. I’m extremely tenacious.” She once got kicked out of one office for asking too many questions, but, she added proudly, her friend who was the patient got the questions answered. Despite her seemingly eternal optimism, she is realistic, she said, showing photos in a scrapbook from gatherings that include some memorial services honoring their friends. The key, though, is “focusing on the celebrations

and joys of life, not just the sadness.” Meet Lynn Flanagan and Dr. John Link at a free lecture, followed by book signing, on Monday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m., at Hilton Garden Inn, 3939 Ocean Bluff Ave. RSVP required by Sept. 19 by e-mail to rsvp@ Include in subject line “Linked By Lynn event.” Books available at the event or at For more information, visit or

Education Matters/Opinion The cost of special education BY MARSHA SUTTON Talking about the cost to public school districts of providing special education services is tricky. No one argues that the need to serve all kids, regardless of their disabilities, is a moral imperative. But the effect of all the special education legislation on already slammed school budgets is the elephant in the room that has to be acknowledged to fully grasp the perilous condition of school district finances. Aides and other professional support in the classroom can cost districts millions of dollars – outside services and facilities, many millions more. On top of that, expensive transportation to and from schools for special education students is legally required. It can all add up to 20 percent of a school district’s budget. Some federal and state transportation money is available but has never fully covered costs. And now, as California’s funding for education continues to evaporate, the amount provided to transport special education students is diminishing even further. In the Solana Beach School District, the school board just approved expending $354,000 to CareA-Van, a Carlsbad-based company, to transport about 30 special education students in 2012-2013. That’s almost $12,000 per student, more than it costs to educate a student for an entire year. “Over the past several years we have reduced special education transportation costs for the district, but continue to look for more cost-effective services,” said SBSD superintendent Nancy Lynch, in an email. In the Del Mar Union School District, the board approved a contract with Care-A-Van for the coming school year for $685,000 to transport 49 special education students, which comes to nearly $14,000 per student. [The difference in travel distance accounts for some of the variation in price.] In the San Dieguito Union High School District, the cost in 2010-2011 for transportation for the 175 special education students who qualify is $2.6 million, which averages to more than $15,000 per student. That figure was higher for 2011-2012, and will increase

Marsha Sutton further this year, according to SDUHSD’s associate superintendent of educational services Rick Schmitt. Staggering numbers Then there’s the cost for aides and special services. Del Mar’s board, at its March 28, 2012 meeting, approved $69,531 for two students who each require a one-on-one instructional assistant for six hours a day. Each aide’s annual salary is about $35,000. This is peanuts compared to the $270,000 San Dieguito paid last year for two students to attend the Family Life Center, a special education residential placement facility classified as a nonprofit 501(c)3, in Petaluma, Calif. “The costs for these types of placements, required by law, include room, board, education and mental health services,” said Schmitt. These students, he said in an email, require care 24 hours a day, 12 months a year, and school districts must pay. Kids in residential facilities, in general, can be violent, need 24-hour care for feeding and toileting, have no communication skills or have other severe physical and emotional needs. San Dieguito began last year with 12 students in residential programs across the country, costing the district just shy of $1 million. That’s not including $750,000 in transportation costs. As of June 2012, Schmitt said the district had 20 students in residential facilities, and will start the year this fall with 18. At about $83,000 per student, the cost to the district this year will be about $1.5 million, not including transportation. The two at Petaluma, at $135,000 each, are unusually expensive. For special education students attending SDUHSD schools, the district has 92 instructional aides, which Schmitt said can each cost

$40,000. That’s nearly $3.7 million. In 2010-2011, San Dieguito’s cost for all special education services was over $18 million, and for 20112012, unofficial numbers are $19 million. The district’s total budget is about $102 million. In 2010-2011, federal and state funds paid 63 percent of the costs, leaving the district on the hook for 37 percent, or about $6.33 million. But in 2011-2012, Schmitt said federal and state funding will only cover 53 percent, forcing SDUHSD to pay 47 percent – about $8.46 million. That $2.13 million difference is a 33-percent increase in one year, a year that happens to be one of the worst for education funding in recent memory. The $8.46 million is a direct encroachment on the general fund. No one wants to set up a conflict between special education students and regular students. It’s not either/ or, because special education services are mandated by law and must be provided. And should be, all would contend. Not a single individual in education has ever suggested that special education services should be denied. No one would say – or even believe – such a thing. But well-meaning special education legislation has resulted in a series of unfunded mandates that cash-strapped school districts already over-burdened with dwindling funding struggle to pay. And those are just facts. Health services The San Dieguito Union High School District, serving about 12,300 students in grades 7-12, has about 10 percent of its student population qualifying for a range of special education services. Ten percent is typical for school districts locally and nationally. There are four categories of special education students at San Dieguito, according to Schmitt: those attending SDUHSD schools who receive extra support at school, those attending SDUHSD schools but require additional services from outside agencies after school hours, those students SDUHSD transports to and from non-public facilities every day who do

Letters to the Editor/Opinion Cell phone tower denial a loss for school I am disappointed to hear that the San Dieguito Union High School District is formally tabling the cell phone towers at Canyon Crest Academy. The Carmel Valley Planning Board (in possible violation of the law) and several local parents and teachers objected to the towers for health reasons, despite the fact that there is no evidence of problems caused by cell towers. UCSD radiology chair Dr. William Bradley has said on record that the towers would have had no effect whatsoever on health. The project would have little to no impact on student life and bring much-needed money into the district. As a current CCA student, I find it extraordinarily unfair that a revenue source for my school has been lost due to the unscientific and unfounded concerns of community members.

Residential units in downtown commercial zone contrary to Comm. Plan Another section of the proposed Village Specific Plan, which is contrary to the adopted Community Plan, is the allowance of 140 residential units in the downtown commercial zone. There are only approximately 42 properties in the C-Zone. The Community Plan Goal 3 (E), on page 57, states “Encourage and facilitate provision of lower cost housing for low and moderate income households.” It goes on, in item 2, to state where that housing should be: “Implement a floor area bonus provision to encourage private owners to provide low-income rental units in the R2, RM-East, RMWest, RM Central Zones.” It says nothing about the R1-10, industrial, or commercial zones! So, why provide bonuses to put it in a zone that is completely incompatible with housing? Provision for low-income housing is a mandate from the State, but our adopted CP tells us where it should be, if we’re going to provide it, and it is not the C-Zone. In my opinion, housing is really not compatible with the primary uses of commerce in a small neighborhood village. There is a conflict with parking, children, loud noises of residential life, etc. This is another section of the Village Specific Plan which is contrary to our adopted CP, and should therefore be voted “NO” on in November.

Todd Akin not alone in extremist views Recently Missouri Senatorial candidate Todd Akin stated that he opposes a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy, even in cases of rape, because he says “legitimate rape” rarely results in pregnancy. He claims that a woman’s body somehow knows to “shut the whole thing down” and prevent pregnancy that might result from a sexual assault. Rape is rape and it is ignorant and insensitive to suggest that some forms of rape are legitimate and others are not. Additionally his claim about pregnancy is medically inaccurate; there is absolutely no evidence that the female body can instinctively defend itself against pregnancy as Akin suggests. According to the National Sexual Violence Research Center, 25,000 become pregnant women each year as a result of rape. For Akin to suggest that their experience is illegitimate is appalling. It is disturbing that people are legislating and running for office who have such a fundamental disregard for women and women’s health. Akin is not alone in his beliefs, though. His statements reflect the views of vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan and many others. Last year, Ryan cosponsored a bill that would essentially redefine rape in order to create legislative barriers for women seeking to terminate a pregnancy. It would do so at one of the most traumatic and vulnerable points in a woman’s life. San Diego Congressman Brian Bilbray co-sponsored the bill to redefine rape. He also voted to defund Planned Parenthood. Bilbray calls himself a moderate, but his record shows him in lockstep with extremists like Todd Akin.

EDUCATION continued from page 18 not attend SDUHSD schools, and those who live in residential facilities 24/7. In 2010-2011, SDUHSD had 1,225 special education students at its schools. Of those, 1,170 were in a category called mild to moderate. The other 55 were classified as moderate to severe. The mild to moderate students attend regular classes at district schools but receive some level of support. Some are provided with transportation. The moderate to severe students, who also attend SDUHSD schools, are often wheelchair-bound and could be blind or have debilitating conditions such as spina bifida. They need more care, often receive psychological services or an array of other mental and physical health support, and usually require one-on-one aides. The cost to the district in 2010-2011 to educate and provide services for the 55 moderate to severe children was $87,903 per student. Almost all these students are given transportation. Another group of students, 42 of them in 20102011, attend non-public schools throughout San Diego County. “We put them on a bus and bring them home at the end of each school day,” Schmitt said. The cost to provide educational services for these students was nearly $1.5 million, without transportation. The fourth group is those students placed in residential facilities. The law requires that, regardless of a student’s condition and the cost, districts must provide a program. “If you can’t provide it within your own building, you have to find a placement for that student outside your building,” Schmitt said. In attempting to adhere to the philosophy of providing the least restrictive environment, “we exhaust all our resources within the district before considering nonpublic schools and programs,” he said.

VIEWS continued from page 18 Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has stated that he wants to shut down Planned Parenthood and the nation’s family planning program, which currently provides five million low-income people with lifesaving cervical, breast and testicular cancer screenings, testing and treatment for sexually

August 30, 2012 For students educated in the district’s schools, many need mental and physical health services the district is not equipped to provide. Because most of the mild to moderate students, and some of the moderate to severe, are diplomabound, they require a full day of academics to graduate. So health services provided by the district using non-public agencies are usually offered outside the school day through outpatient programs. This coming year, though, San Dieguito has contracted with Rady Children’s Hospital for three fulltime therapists to work at each of the district’s nine schools. “They can meet students conveniently during and after school,” Schmitt said. “[It’s] simpler and cheaper, plus our students are able to stay on campus.” Schmitt said the district is required to provide services for special education students through their 22nd birthdays. “We’re not built for those kinds of programs [on campus] so we have what’s called an Adult Transition Program,” Schmitt said. The ATP serves more severely disabled students and helps them develop skills and the capabilities they need to function in society. “It’s called functionality,” Schmitt said. “This Adult Transition Program is best in a community setting rather than on campus. It helps kids get more familiar with being independent.” The cost of all these programs adds up to big bucks for school districts like San Dieguito, and expenses for special education show no sign of lessening. [For a discussion on a unique plan the San Dieguito Union High School District has to cut costs and improve services for special education students, read Part Two next week.] Marsha Sutton can be reached at SuttComm@san.rr. com.

DREAM Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors). Those applying for deferred action must be at least 15 and must have arrived in the United States before the age of 16. They must also have a clean criminal record, save for minor offenses. They also have to show that they are either in high school or have graduated from high school. The more complicated part of the application — and Stinson recommends each applicant seek attorney review because of this — involved proving five years of presence in the country, from June 2007 to the present. This might be a passport with admission stamp or travel records, but most commonly applicants will seek out school records, such as report cards or transcripts. He said signed affidavits from friends and family saying the applicant was living in the country will work as supplemental documents, but not as primary required documents. “It can be really hard to show proof of presence,” he said. “In other immigration cases, lawyers say the government wants to see a record of presence every 90 days.” Stinson recommends that people apply “smart not fast,” because if it is incomplete or inaccurate it will most likely lead to rejection, and there’s no appeal process or opportunity to submit more documents once the application is in. “We recommend that everyone sit down with an immigration lawyer for at least a consultation and show them,” he said, adding that completion is vital. “If you have five traffic tickets, you must put them all out there. You don’t get a second chance and information that is missing could be used as a reason to reject the application.” He also stressed that applicants do not go to “notarios or visa-fixers” who may advertise that they can help with the application process. “Don’t waste time and money with anybody other than an immigration lawyer,” he said, adding that lawyer sessions will be offered at the church. Once received, applicants will receive a notice and then an appointment to get fingerprinted. They will be able to renew the status every two years.

we will even get a permit for 2014, but we still want to have a race in North County,” said TurnKey founder and president Peter Douglass. “The question is whether we will keep pressing for 2013 or take it easy and work for 2014 … We’re not going to take our ball and go home.” Douglass, who also helped create San Diego’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, said he is looking at other cities to hold the 10/20 race as well, but that doesn’t affect the company’s interest in North County. The race would start at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Runners would travel west on Via de la Valle, then north on Highway 101 to the kook statue in Cardiff, and then turn around and run back to the fairgrounds. The race would culminate with a large concert at the fairgrounds, and six of the 20 music stages would be located in various parts of Solana Beach. A Sheriff’s official told the council that the event would be “definitely the biggest we’ve ever done,” adding that the department may have to tow cars since there would be no parking on Highway 101. Talks with law enforcement officials in Austin, where a similar race by the same organizers was successfully held earlier this year, revealed that about 100 officers were needed to be present for that event. “We’ve had preliminary talks … We think we can do it,” he said. City Manager David Ott said at the time of the proposed race, the revitalization project will be in the sidewalk construction phase on the west side, forcing “stragglers” to run through the Coastal Rail Trail after traffic resumes on main thoroughfares. “The Coastal Rail Trail is not built for 10,000 people running on it,” Mayor Joe Kellejian said. Organizer Rick Kozlowski, who has produced a number of San Diego runs, triathlons and bike rides through his company Koz Events (including an annual triathlon in Solana Beach), said every event does have some stragglers and they will be running 10 to 15 feet apart. “You’re not looking at hundreds of runners or walkers going in packs,” he said.


Kozlowski said that clean-up will be well-concerted — with eight trucks following behind the runners — and the race will be a chance for Solana Beach to have “a marquee event that could happen every year.” He also said the stages are small and noise doesn’t go past 200 feet and the runners absorb a lot of the sound. Council member Tom Campbell responded, “I have a hard time buying all that.” One of the music stages will be located on the Gateway Property along the border of Solana Beach and Cardiff, which was recently purchased by the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy. Conservancy Director Doug Gibson said the race will allow for exposure of the recent multi-million dollar acquisition and the need to pay off the current loan on the property. “Through this race, funds and awareness will be raised to help protect this site in perpetuity,” he wrote in a letter to the council. “Runners in the race will come from all over the country. They will get a first-hand view of why we all call this place home. Minor disruptions for a one-day event do not compete with the overall social and economic benefit the community will gain.” The race proposal involves an even distribution of $30,000 to each of the impacted communities — Del Mar, Solana Beach and Encinitas. The council expressed concern that Solana Beach’s residents will be much more impacted than Del Mar and Encinitas and that element of the proposal should be revised. Council member Mike Nichols suggested that the race organizers hold an open house in the community and invite the public to share input on the event. He said the organizers’ request to obtain permits in a month is especially hard for the council. “There’s a lot of people who feel there’s a lot going on right now, so why should we add to that?” he said. “There’s a lot of questions, and it’s not something we can get done in a month, to come up with all the answers.” The council members collectively believes holding off, possibly until 2014, would be the best solution for Solana Beach, and their decision involves continuing conversations with the organizers. “I love the concept of the whole thing and the Gateway is the proper recipient,” said Heebner. “I wish we could do it sooner, and I am very supportive, but the timing just isn’t there.”

Local high schools ready for upcoming football season BY GIDEON RUBIN Cathedral Catholic: Cathedral Catholic has taken different roads on their way to turning an era of dominance into a fullblown football dynasty. But since 2007, every year, they’ve ended up in the same place, and produced identical results. Last season ended with the Dons winning their fifth consecutive San Diego Section Division III title game, as they trounced Olympian 41-0 in a December championship game at Qualcomm Stadium. The Dons face formidable challenges and an unforgiving schedule in their quest to extend their dynasty. Among the biggest challenges will be replacing heavy graduation losses. But the Dons, who graduated 33 seniors, have an abundance of talent returning. None are more significant than senior quarterback Garrett Bogart. An offense that in recent years has primarily relied on the run took to the airwaves last year under Bogart, who threw for 1,805 yards and 19 touchdowns. The Dons will miss running back J.J. Stavola, who graduated after leading the team with 1,032 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns. Key backfield returnees include senior running back Tony Johnson, their second leading rusher from last year (597 yards and five touchdowns), and juniors Chris Moliga (176 yards, one touchdown) and Xavier Ulu-

Jacob Alsadek tu (121 yards, two touchdowns). The Dons suffered a particularly tough graduation hit to their receiving corps though. With their four leading receivers from last season (Andrew Pascale, Brian Heinz, Trevor Deddeh and Stavola), who combined for 1,429 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns last season no longer in the mix, Bogart will have to count on the development of an untested crop of receivers. Moliga, who caught 11 passes for 176 yards, is the only returnee with over 100 receiving yards from last year’s team. On the defensive side, they’ll miss linebacker Russell Reeder; who led the team with 119 tackles. Their key returnees include junior lineman Kyle Davis, who was second on the team last season with 7.5 sacks, and Toshaun Poumele, a senior linebacker who was the team’s second leading tackler last season with 117.

Torrey Pines: Torrey Pines has been to the San Diego Section Division I quarterfinals three straight years and the Falcons are hopeful a powerful offensive line can help them get that much closer to a championship bid. The Falcons are led by offensive lineman Jacob Alsadek, a 6-foot-7 330-pounder who has already committed to playing at Division I Arizona. Running backs Billy Maggs, Collin Brown and Cole Jazco project to be the featured backfield threats in the Falcons’ run-oriented Delaware wing-T offense. Wide receiver Jackson Gentes figures to be their most prominent deep threat. Other key returnees include linebackers Miles Ahles and Grant McGahey and offensive linemen Jake Ashby and Andrew Maneval. Santa Fe Christian: Santa Fe Christian is coming off one of its best seasons in years in which the Eagles compiled an 11-2 overall record and advanced to the Division V playoff semifinals. The Eagles hope to make another deep postseason run despite graduating seven seniors, a group that includes three of their four leading rushers from last season. They return their leading rusher, Tony Miro, a powerful and swift 5-9 195-pounder who last season piled up 1,072 ground yards and led the team with 13 touchdowns.

Torrey Pines Falcons lose close season opener to La Costa Canyon Mavericks The Torrey Pines Jr. Midget Falcons (D2) lost a close game to the La Costa Canyon Mavericks in the season opener for both teams. The Falcons struck first with a long pass from Jackie Plashkes to Brandon Ray that carried to the LCC two yard line. A run by Plashkes on the next play and a two-pont kick by Tucker Pike put the Falcons up early, 8-0. The Mavericks scored two long-distance touchdowns in the first half. The first came on a first down 75 yard pass to the halfback out of the backfield and the second on a 33 yard sprint around the Mavericks’ left end. As time was expiring in the first half, the Falcons reached the Maverick two yard line before having to settle for a Tucker Pike field goal. The first half ended with LCC leading 14-11, and

that would be the final game score. Both teams would move the ball in the second half but neither could get into the end zone. LCC would move the ball to the Falcon 22 yard line before a penalty helped halt the drive, and Torrey Pines would make a fourth quarter first down at the Maverick 20, only to lose that opportunity to a penalty. The two Palomar Conference powerhouses will meet again on Sept. 29 on the Torrey Pines field, and it should be a great display of Pop Warner football. — Bill Butler

Other key returnees include running back Cole Needham and receiver Nathan Ross. The Eagles run a ground-oriented Delaware wing-T offense that they always seem to execute exceptionally well to go along with a hard-nosed defense. Two-way linemen Blaine Weeks ,Connor Vaccaro, Brenton Drake, Dominic Burtech and Zach Feld (all seniors) all have varsity experience and figure to be potential difference-makers as young skilled players develop. San Diego Jewish Academy:

San Diego Jewish Academy is 10 years removed from the establishment of its football program and heads into its fourth year of playing 11-man football after competing on the 8-man circuit the previous seven years. The Lions are hopeful they can build on a solid 2011 performance, when they went 4-3 overall, narrowly missing out on a Division V playoff berth. They figure to have an excellent chance of turning the corner this year with a strong returning nucleus. The Lions return senior quarterback Micah Wein-

stein, the school’s all-time leading passer. Weinstein has mastered a college-style spread offense that is both exciting to watch and difficult to execute. He threw for 1,063 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. Other key returnees include running back Jeremy Danzig, and Jake Posnock (both seniors). Danzig led the team rushing for 552 yards and five touchdowns last season. Posnock was the team’s leading tackler last season with 68.

Carmel Valley Summer 2012 MYS Open League Basketball League Champs: The Spurs Last week the Spurs won the 3rd/4th grade championship game in the Master Your Sports Open League Basketball Playoff Tournament in Carmel Valley. They defeated the Rebels 32-29 in an extremely close semi-final game (in overtime) to advance to the finals. In the championship game, they played the legendary “Pony Power” team. This was a rematch of the 2012 Spring League championship game where Pony Power defeated the Spurs. After falling behind 12-4 in the first 10 minutes of the game, the Spurs fought back to take a small lead at half-time, 17-16. In the 2nd half, the Spurs pulled ahead with some great jump shots and layups and never looked back, finally winning the game 44-29. The Spurs effort included a fast break offense along with a relentless defense. The win capped a memorable season for the Spurs team.

Surf Boys U9 White Team wins West Coast Futbol Classic Over the weekend of Aug. 18-19, the Surf Boys U9 White team coached by Dave Currie successfully defended their 2011 championship title by placing first in the West Coast Futbol Classic held in Irvine, Calif. In the championship game, Surf defeated the FC Blades from Irvine with a score of 6-1. Every player on the Surf team brought their A-game to this exciting hard fought match that was more difficult than the final score indicated. The first half was a scoreless battle until the first Surf goal was scored late in the first half by Elijah “Coco” Hernandez. After “Coco” received a well-placed throw-in by defender Nicholas Carlo, he dribbled around the defenders and took the shot. The first half ended with a score of 1-0. In the second half, Daniel Karam continued the scoring by blasting a free kick into the back of the net. Coco Hernandez then added another one to give a score of 3-0. The fourth goal was scored by Carson Malinowski off a cross by Charlie Kosakoff. Charlie then got on the scoreboard himself after a great cross by Ryan Flather. Immediately after the fifth Surf goal, the FC Blades snuck one in to give a score of 5-1. The final goal was scored by Charlie Kosakoff to end the game at 6-1.

HeadNorth pairs mentors with children who share experiences BY KATHY DAY When 41-year-old Andy Huesing met 5-year-old Alessandro Pintor on Aug. 23, it could have been any other meeting of new friends. But in this case, the new pals rolled up in their wheelchairs at SeaWorld’s Garden Plaza for the launch of Roll Models, a mentoring program pairing adult spinal cord injury victims with children in wheelchairs. They were one of seven pairs of new friends who spent the day getting to know each other. Family members also joined the fun during an event that included a Shamu show, a chance to explore the park and meet a couple of animals, and an ice cream social. Organized by HeadNorth, the Carmel Valley-based nonprofit providing support and resources to paraplegics and their families, in partnership with Tadpole Adaptive (a San Diego online retailer that provides equipment for children with special needs), the effort inspired some giant smiles. As Huesing, one of the owners of Tadpole Adaptive, got to know Alessandro, the youngster showed off his skills, tilting back in a wheelie that prompted a similar move by his mentor. It wasn’t like an adult talking to a little boy but rather two people sharing a common bond. Huesig learned that penguins are his new friend’s favorite animals and the one he wanted to see most that day, although the penguin visit was delayed by a longer than anticipated stop at Turtle Reef where Alessandro took to the video games. Later, Alessandro – and his parents – learned about how to make his wheelchair go faster, although Huesing said he is already a bit of a speedster. Huesing, a Hillcrest resident, broke his neck at the C-7 level diving into a swimming pool when he was 17. While he has no use of his legs and his hands are somewhat affected, he otherwise has full upper body mobility. His young friend, a San Clemente boy who was injured in a car accident when he was 3, has a similar injury. However, Huesing noted that Alessandro has better control of his hands than he does, perhaps because of his therapy at Project Walk in Carlsbad. “I think a lot of the time kids with

There have been wonderful examples of such individuals from my professional and personal life. In the causes that I find important, there are always people who inspire me by doing much more than I do. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, who (living or deceased) would you invite? I have often thought of a similar-type question. Would I have someone who has been an inspiration to many, but whose philosophy is already well known or someone who you would wonder of their answers to certain questions?

Reflecting on the day for a blogpost he was writing, he said, “At one point, I caught myself thinking he’s just like any other kids. I kind of forgot he was in a wheelchair … It really gave me a fresh perspective.” As part of the program, HeadNorth Executive Director Michele Bart led a brief icebreaker, asking each of the children and their mentors to introduce themselves, give their age and tell what animal they would like to be. Alessandro would choose to be a penguin; Andy an octopus. At least a couple of the children, who ranged in age from 3 to 10, chose dolphins while several of the adults seMaking friends at SeaWorld. lected birds and butterflies.

Psychologist, digital artist square off on the nature of experience BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT The next Bronowski Art & Science Forum will feature an illustrated conversation about the nature of experience between UCSD psychology professor Piotr Winkielman and digital video artist Jennifer Steinkamp, 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, in the auditorium at the Neurosciences Institute, 1640 John Jay Hopkins Drive. Founder/director Ron Newby calls the Forum series “entertainment for the intellectually curious.” There’s no charge for the talks, presenters receive no honorariums, and audience interaction is welcomed at the end of each program. While the original Forums took place at the Salk Institute, for the past several years, the venue has been the 352-seat auditorium at the Neurosciences Institute. Now, after 13 years and 120 programs, the Bronowski Forum may be coming to an end. With the Scripps Research Institute resumes control of the building, there will be a rental fee of $1,500 for the auditorium that so many organizations have been able to use free of charge.

ating the kind of place Salk envisioned — a grand agora where scientists and artists could meet, share ideas, and form new kinds of cross-disciplinary collaborations. Best known for his BBCTV documentary series “The Ascent of Man,” Bronowski was described by his wife, Rita, as “an extraordinarily whole person ... a thinking man ... [who] treated art and science as the same expression of the human imagination.” Rita Bronowski, who attended most of the Forum events until her death two years ago, was present at the 100th Forum in January, 2009, which was also a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Jacob Bronowski, and featured their daughter, Lisa Jardine, professor or Renaissance Studies at the University of London. Newby, of Del Mar, had the opportunity to share many conversations with Bronowski and Salk during his 27 years as a researcher in genetics at the Institute. “It was these two men who inspired me to continue the tradition of healing the separation between art and science that was set in motion when Jonas Salk invited Jacob Bronowski to

He’s been part of UCSD’s faculty since 2003, and his research explores the “interplay between emotion, cognition and consciousness.” Los Angeles-based artist Jennifer Steinkamp, whose digital projections transform

Don’t miss the Winkielman-Steinkamp conversation. It may be a long time before you hear this kind of talk again.

Solana Beach resident’s new business is more than just a juice bar Del Mar’s B bar to be home base for nutritional cleanse programs

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Solana Beach resident Lisa Odenweller has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, but she never thought she would end up starting a company that’s both a juice bar and nutritional movement. In October she will open B bar in the current location of Combo Juice at 2683 Via De La Valle, and she chose that store front because it’s a central location for the many clients she already has in Carmel Valley, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar and Solana Beach. You might wonder how Odenweller already has hundreds of clients before her store — the first organic juice bar in San Diego — has even opened, and that’s because she has been leading locals under her company, Beaming, in nutritional cleanses that she created with the help of nationally-acclaimed raw foodist Matthew Kenney. Her next cleanse is coming up on Sept. 10, and she said many

clients have enjoyed participating in groups or signing up in an effort to kick off a new diet or nutritional effort. “Most people seem to be cleansing to lose weight,” Odenweller said. “You do lose weight on the cleanse, but it is more about long-term health, not shortterm weight loss.” Participants of her fourday cleanse program, which she has been holding once a month, pick up all their food each day from nearby participating businesses, such as Poppy boutique in the Del Rayo shopping center. The daily menu includes at least one superfood smoothie made from ingredients such as freshsprouted nuts, hand-pressed almond milk, hemp, bluegreen algae, cholorella and other natural ingredients. “People go nuts for it,” said Odenweller. “It’s usually their favorite meal of the day ... I’ve found that people don’t want to come off of the cleanse.” Also included are Odenweller’s signature green juices, a raw soup for lunch, supplements for energy and a raw salad or dish such as zucchini spaghetti

Lisa Odenweller is the founder and owner of Beaming, which has given rise to both a juice bar and cleanse program. for dinner. About 1,200 to 1,400 calories are consumed in the entire day, she said. “Being a mom of three, I wanted to include dinner so parents can sit down with their family and eat at the end of the day,” she said, adding that most cleanses she has researched don’t include food at all. Odenweller became interested in cleanses a few years ago when she started seeking something for herself to cure her of exhaustion, weight gain and mental fog. In a time where people are increasingly latching on

to cleanses — strict, shortterm diets that involve eating very little, if at all — she did too. “There are at least 20 of them out there on the market,” said Odenweller, who is a spin instructor at Carmel Valley’s Pacific Athletic Club. “There’s not one cleanse I haven’t gotten my hands on to try to understand what they are doing.” Many of the cleanses, she found, were “miserable.” “You are basically stopping your metabolism and when you are done you just want pizza and potato chips. You’re like, ‘Get me off of this,’” she said. “On some of them, like the juice diets, there was just so much sugar. I felt like that was irresponsible and there had to be a better way to do it.” After becoming more educated about nutrition and wellness, she realized that all it takes are simple changes to have a profound effect on how she felt and looked. Feeling herself transformed, she saw an opportunity to share that knowledge with the world through her company, and her cleanses are very different than many others on

Beaming’s juices, soups, smoothies and cocktail mixers are packaged in 16 oz. bottles with inspirational messages on the lid. the market, that consist of only liquids and supplements. “When I did a juice fast, I cheated. It didn’t seem like it was good for me,” she said. “It’s really about nourishment and starving yourself just doesn’t seem to work. On our programs you don’t get hungry, and a lot of people don’t even finish the food.” People lose anywhere from three to 10 pounds on the cleanse, Odenweller said. Once B bar opens, it will be the pick-up spot for cleanse participants, but it

will also offer the freshpressed juices, superfood smoothies, snacks and vegetarian take-away foods that are included in the cleanse programs. Customers can also buy supplements and health products, as well as get information about a variety of cleanse programs there. Odenweller said it’s particularly important that B bar will be the only all-organic juice bar in San Diego. Because often such a large quantity of vegetables are condensed into one serving of juice, if not organic, that means there is an even higher concentration of pesticides consumed. “I’m not a vegan or vegetarian or raw foodist,” she said. “I just want to promote good, clean food that will make you feel great.” Odenweller said the cleanses have a limited number of spaces and often sell out. Right now she is about halfway full for the September cleanse, and groups of three or more get 15 percent off of enrollment. For more information, or to enroll, visit

Chicken Lo Mein is a popular Cantonese-style dish with soft noddles.

Guests can sit at tables or booths in the bright, pastel-colored dining room.

China Cafe offers four styles of Chinese cooking BY KELLEY CARLSON our regional methods of Chinese cooking can be found under one roof, just across from the Los Peñasquitos Lagoon in Del Mar. The family-owned China Cafe offers a wide variety of Hunan and Szechuan, Peking (Mandarin), Cantonese and Shanghai-style cuisine prepared by Chef Tong, a five-star cook from Hong Kong. Hot peppers and peppercorns are trademark ingredients of the spicy and savory Hunan and Szechuan dishes. Hunan Pork Chops and Szechuan Beef are among the entrees at China Cafe that fall into this category. Then there are the Peking (Mandarin) creations (based on recipes used for imperial banquets) that contain a delicate flavor. These include Kung Pao Chicken or Beef. Some Cantonese dishes are cooked over a light fire, resulting in tenderness. China Cafe customers who desire this style can select from items such as Moo Goo Gai Pan, Chicken Chop Suey, and Chow Mein. Finally, the restaurant also utilizes the Shanghai technique, resulting in foods that sometimes have vivid colors and are delicate and slightly sweet. Each entree can be customized to a guest’s needs, since the food isn’t cooked until the order is placed. For example, patrons can request a certain level of spiciness to their food, generally on a scale of 1 to 10. But

Foods are prepared “not too salty,” Thach said, but more salt can be added upon request. “We try to cook more healthfully these day; we try to do our best for people to like it.” Thach, whose family has been in the restaurant business for more than 40 years, noted that only chicken breast and other lean meats are used in the dishes, and sauces are made in-house. Nutritious brown rice is available, but for an extra charge, since it’s not ordered by most customers; entrees are served with fried or steamed rice. Guests can select items individually, or choose from several “gourmet dinner”

options that each come with a soup, several starters and one entree per person. Early bird specials are offered 3-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. There is a kids’ menu available for the under-10 crowd, with a choice of Fried Rice or Chow Mein, along with appetizers like Egg Rolls and Fried Wontons. The family-friendly establishment has a more modern, brighter appearance than the traditional Chinese eatery, featuring greenand-yellow decor rather than red. On the enclosed patio, customers are treated to views of the lagoon while dining. Parking in the restaurant’s lot is limited to about five spaces, but guests can leave their vehicles along Carmel Valley Road or on one of the neighborhood’s side streets.

Art San Diego brings ‘New Art Del Mar man’s 7-foot sculpture wins ‘Best in Show’ in national art competition City’ show to Balboa Park BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT For over 15 years, Del Mar resident Ann Berchtold has been making a difference on the local art scene, most notably by creating Art San Diego, a contemporary art fair that may someday rival Miami’s Art Basel. The first ASD, in 2009, was at the Grand Del Mar. The next two settled in at the Bayfront Hilton. This year, Balboa Park is the place, and the venue itself is a work of art: the Balboa Park Activity Center, a fine-looking building designed by acclaimed local architect Rob Quigley and virtually unknown to all but indoor badminton and ping pong players. The 38,000-square-foot gymnasium will be transformed into New Art City, a showcase and marketplace for about 400 artists and 60 galleries, museums, and university art departments, Sept. 6-9. “I just love this venue,” Berchtold said. “It’s such a great canvas for the fair. But we have to bring in everything — electrical wiring, catering kitchen, everything!” She’s had lots of experience in event production, so the enormity of the project doesn’t faze her. And she’ll have a time-lapse camera documenting the process, from buildup to breakdown, which could be the start of a future exhibit. The fair’s theme, she says, is “hyper-local meets international,” so there will be a mix of top local artdealers, like La Jolla’s Scott White, Mark Quint, R.B. Stevenson, Alexander Salazar, and J.M. Tasende, along with galleries from Argentina, Australia, Mexico, and Korea, and a special exhibition called “Vision China,” presented by the Cultural

New Art City will feature four districts: Contemporary Art, Contemporary Furniture & Products, Midcentury Modern Art, and Solo Artists’ Booths. There will be emerging artists from Los Angeles and Tijuana, and an interactive, multidisciplinary installation by UCSD MFA candidates that connects the current Art Fair to the 1915 California-Panama Exposition for which Balboa Park was created. There will also be art and design talks, a Saturday evening wine-tasting, and a Sunday “Bird Project” for kids, giving them a chance to collaborate with artists on bird cards. “I go to about 20 art fairs every year to learn new things, but the formats are really all the same,” Berchtold said. “So I’m no longer looking for a model. I want to play with the format, make it more of an experience, give locals something different every year so they’ll keep on returning. My big dream is to bring in multimedia performances, too.” Maybe for Balboa Park’s Centennial in 2015? But first, there’s ASD 2012, which kicks off with an Opening Night VIP preview party benefitting MCASD, with appetizers by Giuseppe Fine Catering, well known to La Jollans who frequent the Museum Café.

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Del Mar artist Richard “Rick” Frederick won “Best of Show” this summer in a national art competition judged by 16 museum curators. His three-dimensional sculpture, “Splash,” which stands 7 feet tall, stole the show with its flowing, nature-inspired teardrop shapes made from stainless steel and glass. “It’s just incredible for him to be acknowledged for a piece that was blood, sweat and tears to make,” said Frederick’s wife, Tory, adding that he worked on the sculpture for about two years. During that time, she gave birth to their now 3-year-old daughter Breezy. Frederick, who graduated in 1981 from San Diego State University with a degree in art, said the sculptural marriage of steel and glass has always intrigued him because it carries strength and mass, and its “temporal tones define color sublets of mirror reflections of the sculpture’s surroundings.” “Glass is fluid, bold and fragile,” he said. “It carries the ability to refract light and confuse the eye with a depth of color and suspended space. It can act as a window into something unseen, present a bold visual statement or hide behind the reflective ghost of its environment.” The work of art is the first in a series of water-themed sculptures that Frederick has designed, said the artist, who has aspired to be an artist from an early age. He was taught by his father to draw and paint, and he started taking on art jobs as early as high school. He painted signs, murals, did airbrushing, worked as a draftsman and performed design and layout work for some local shops. At 14, he was cutting and welding coffee cans to make sculpture.

Del Mar artist Richard “Rick” Frederick with his awardwinning sculpture “Splash.” “That was my first experience creating sculpture and one that influenced my entire life,” he said. The inspiration for his most recent work was shapes derived from nature — “a visual quest to entice the viewer to look through, behind or around an element,” he said. For more information, visit or

Del Mar Art Center heating up with new art reception to be held Sept. 8 Not since Yves Klein (1928-1962) has an artist so boldly harnessed fire as a medium to construct a human portrait. The seven-foot tall anthropometry “Carol-Ann on Fire,” by San Diego artist Robert Glick, is an abstract expose of the female spirit. The model appears to climb to new heights, poised in a delicate balance between uncharted boarders. Glick’s work has been shown at prestigious locations such as the Oceanside Museum of Art and Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in New York city. When asked about his fire paintings, he responded: “when flames leap headlong into the void they leave behind an unsullied imprint, a shining moment — pure energy incarnate,” an applicable description of his latest piece set in a salon-style show at the Del Mar Art Center. “Carol-Ann on Fire” is the giant of the exhibit, both in size and creativity, and revitalizes abstract portraiture in a way not seen in years. Don’t miss this gem of the collection at the artists’ reception Saturday, Sept. 8, from 6-9 p.m. at the Del Mar Art Center Gallery, Del Mar Plaza, 1555 Camino Del Mar, Suite 122;

Kinderhouse Montessori School dedicated to cultivating ‘the whole child’ BY KAREN BILLING Yogi Patel’s Kinderhouse Montessori School in Sorrento Valley specializes in “home-cooked wholesomeness.” At her school, children 18 months old through sixth grade are given a well-rounded education that promotes “intellectual, social and emotional growth.” Patel said she aims to empower each child by instilling confidence and a joy for learning. “For me I believe it’s more like educating your child at home, they’re able to learn in a peaceful home environ- Yogi Patel, ment,” Patel said. “Montessori works Kinderhouse with each child at their own pace.” Kinderhouse has five primary class- Montessori rooms in its large, two-story building School founder. where the playful chirps of the school bird Boyd echo joyfully throughout the space. Outside of the building there is a play area and the school’s organic garden where children plant fruit trees and help with the harvest of vegetables. “We want to show the children exactly how things work,” Patel said. “They’re so responsible (in the garden) — they dig, sow seeds and bring in the harvest.” Last year the children harvested more than 50 zucchinis and baked a batch of zucchini bread with their haul. They also learned how to make yummy kale chips with the kale they grew—just one example of how unique an environment Kinderhouse is. Patel, who is originally from India, became involved with Montessori schools about 13 years ago before she moved to San Diego from Atlanta. “I fell into it accidentally, I wasn’t familiar with Montessori but I wanted that way of life,” said Patel, who was drawn to the school’s work with nature and how they taught children to be so independent. After getting her two children started in Montessori education, she started her own Montessori school 11 years ago out of her Scripps Ranch home.

Students at the Kinderhouse Montessori School. Her school has been in Sorrento Valley since 2006 and by 2009 enrollment at the location was full, prompting the opening of their second location in Rancho Bernardo. Currently there are 135 students in Sorrento Valley and 58 at Rancho Bernardo. “It’s definitely so rewarding and for me this is such a wonderful gift to be with these children,” Patel said. “I feel so blessed and grateful to be able to have an opportunity to provide such a good foundation for the children.” Montessori’s method of one-on-one instruction has had “amazing academic results,” Patel said, noting that students become very self-motivated. Classrooms are mixed so that there might be a 3-year-old in a classroom with kindergartners. “A 3-year-old can be motivated by the older children and the older students are able to be the leaders, gaining confidence and practicing their knowledge,” Patel said. A 4-year-old child might be able to understand the concept of multiplication or fractions. “(Children) are like sponges,” Patel says, so why not give them a glimpse of ev-

erything they’re going to come in contact with educationally by the age of 6? They’re also receiving an education for life, she says, as everything in the classroom has a purpose. They learn grace and courtesy and table manners, prepare their own lunches and clean up after themselves, compost their waste, wash laundry the old-fashioned way, care for pets and plants in the classroom and even learn how to sew a button. Students even make their own arrangements for field trips and can request a meeting with Patel—they know how to set their own agendas. “Every situation is a learning opportunity,” Patel said. There are 28 staff members at Kinderhouse, all trained in child psychology as well as the Montessori theory on developmental stages. The school is bilingual—the assistant teachers only speak in Spanish and through immersion learning, most students can speak the language and follow simple directions in Spanish. There is no testing and no homework. “Children learn at school and play at home,” Patel said. “A lot of parents think Montessori students can just do whatever they want, but it’s not like that,” Patel said. There are guidelines for working in the classroom. Students who are not working one-on-one with teachers are given purposeful activities or work in small groups. If they are disruptive or act up, their freedom ends. Community service is an important aspect of the Montessori education. The school has fundraised to build a school in Sierra Leone, participated in food drives and given book donations for schools in Mexico. Locally, they have also put on free concerts for the community. The school also offers enrichment classes in music and gymnastics, providing children with a balance of activities without their parents having to shuttle them around from place to place every day. As a help to parents, after-school childcare is offered until 6 p.m. and the school also runs a free class for parents in positive discipline. The school is located at 6540 Flanders Drive, San Diego, 92121. For more information, call (858) 550-0097 or visit

Racing enthusiasts’ investment pays off through La Vida Loca stable BY KELLEY CARLSON When people heard that Steve Nagelberg was planning to form a partnership to invest in racehorses they thought he was ... well ... crazy. “You know what? It’s a crazy life,” he responded. “Why not?” It became the inspiration for his group’s name, La Vida Loca Racing Stable, a fun-loving bunch who pool their money together to buy thoroughbreds and cheer them on in a relaxed environment. The partnership initially consisted of 10 people; in the years since its inception, in 2008, it has grown to include 22 racing aficionados. The majority hail from San Diego County, including Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and La Jolla; others are from Los Angeles/Inland Empire, Palm Springs and even Arizona. Nagelberg, who works for Clear Channel, has been friends with most of the group members for at least 20 years. Quite a few are involved in radio and advertising, and some are acquaintances from the San Diego Tennis and Racquet Club. Friends of friends are involved, as well. As managing partner, Nagelberg “gets all the blame and all the credit,”

was named California’s champion 2-year-old colt that year, but eventually dropped to the claiming ranks. Although he was no longer a top-level runner, he provided Nagelberg with one of his biggest racing thrills to date. “Being in the winner’s circle on Opening Day (at Del Mar in 2001) was a dream come true,” Nagelberg said.


said fellow La Vida Loca member Dex Allen with a smile. Nagelberg has been a fan of the sport for years. His interest in racing was first piqued as a teenager, as his parents occasionally took him to Arlington Park in Chicago. Later, Nagelberg became acquainted with a trainer’s son after giving him tennis lessons and, in turn, he was introduced to life on the backstretch of the racetrack, which further fueled his passion for the sport. He also successfully gambled on horses with high school buddies at Maywood Park, Sportsman’s Park, Hawthorne Racecourse and Balmoral Park Racetrack in Illinois.

Eventually, Nagelberg developed a desire to become an owner. About 10 years ago, he attended a Kentucky Derby Day seminar presented by Jon Lindo at Del Mar’s Surfside Race Place, and had the opportunity to chat with the handicapper. Lindo, who is also a thoroughbred owner, gave advice to Nagelberg on how to increase his involvement in racing. Three weeks later, Nagelberg joined with a group of owners and had his first horse, Daring General, who was trained by Bill Spawr and ridden by Laffit Pincay Jr. Daring General had been fourth in the 1998 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and

Members of the La Vida Loca Racing Stable. After a few years of investing in thoroughbreds on his own, Nagelberg decided to form an LLC. “I wanted something more formal and have more money to work with,” the Rancho Santa Fe resident said. Among the partners who came aboard were Andy Feldman and Mark Silverstein. Feldman — a onetime regular at Belmont Park and Aqueduct Racetrack in New York — had owned horses in partnership with other groups such as Little Red Feather Racing. Silverstein, who spent his childhood at Santa Anita Park in

horses get saddled in the paddock. Oftentimes, they will bring their children in the mornings to see the thoroughbreds and meet the trainers. “Everybody has fun, and everybody knows everybody else,” Nagelberg said. On the first Sunday of the Del Mar meet, La Vida Loca arranges a get-together, and members delight in a day of betting. And the socialization extends beyond the local meet — the investors congregate at the Surfside Race Place to catch action at other tracks once the Del Mar season ends. They have also gone as a group to Betfair Hollywood Park and Santa Anita Park to watch their horses race. “The point is to own a part and have fun,” Nagelberg said. Feldman said he enjoys the experience. “(It’s a chance) to be out with friends, not talking politics,” he said.

When the school bell rings, it’s time for eating smart The Kitchen Shrink

CATHARINE KAUFMAN When Wilma Flintstone and I were classmates at Bedrock Elementary School, au courant lunches consisted of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on Wonder white, a Red Delicious apple coated with wax and pesticides, and a Twinkie all stuffed in an aluminum Donny Osmond lunchbox. Times they are a changin’. Here’s a primer on more healthful school eats with some advice on college cuisine to keep students’ minds and bodies fit and humming at optimum capacity. Almond Joy Swap out persona non

grata peanut butter (naturally laced with aflatoxins that trigger assorted allergies and reactions) for heart-healthy, diabeticfriendly, brain-stimulating, energy-boosting almond butter. Almonds (packed with mono-saturated fat, protein, potassium, magnesium, copper, folic acid, fiber and Vitamin E) have been linked to spurring intellectual development in children. They satiate hunger pangs to prevent the munchies and weight gain, and stimulate the manufacture of energy, acting as nature’s Roto Rooter to keep away that logy feeling. Spread that almond butter on some whole wheat or glutenfree oat bread, or toss some raw nuts in a green or fruit salad or eat them straight up with dried cherries, cranberries or raisins. Over the Rainbow Visualize a box of Crayola crayons when preparing lunch or afterschool snacks as a reminder to pack colorful assorted fruits and veggies (and we’re not talking fruit leather or a ketchup package).

How Will THEY Represent YOU? Sherri Lightner & Ray Ellis

A night of peace, music, fun in DM BY JODI KENNEDY In 1969, it was all about peace and music and Woodstock. The hippy concertgoers held up their lighters and matches to show the love. Forty-three years later, it’s cell phones and flashlights, but on the night of Aug. 21 the spirit of the ‘60s was back, alive, and well in Del Mar! At the Aug. 21 Del Mar Foundation Powerhouse Park concert, Eve Selis and her amazing band brought it “back to the garden” with their Woodstock revival show. But first the crowd of mostly locals was treated to an opening act, sponsored by Zel’s Del Mar. Cancer-survivor turned alternative singer Michael Tiernan’s mellow tunes and smooth sound are reminiscent of Coldplay and Jack Johnson. Then as the sun began to dip into the sea, Eve Selis, a local favorite, breezed on stage with her enchanting voice, conjuring up memories of everything from Joan Baez to Janis Joplin. Many in the crowd were brought to their feet, arms around each other, singing and swaying along with the band. As they have for the past 30 years, the Del Mar Foundation, in partnership with local sponsors, has been bringing the community together with these unique seaside concerts. This year, concert patrons include long-time sponsor the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and, new this year, Marrokal Design & Remodeling. Concert supporters Jake’s Del Mar, Pacifica Del Mar, Poseidon on the beach, and Sbicca have joined them in underwriting all four of this summer’s Powerhouse concerts. Don’t miss local band The Heroes, who will close out this season on Sunday, Sept. 9, at 5 p.m. Learn more about the Del Mar Foundation by visiting PHOTOS/JON CLARK

In addition to the above, visiting a place that has an interesting history has great value; Israel would be an example. Our trip on the Orient Express is a wonderful memory. What are your favorite movies of all time? “Dr. Zhivago,” “The Dirty Dozen,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” and “For Whom The Bell Tolls.” (This list tells you something about my age.) What is your most prized possession? I have had good health and without this, many things are truly impossible. A great marriage is a close second, but one could add books and handmade cedar-strip canoes. What is your motto or philosophy of life? The following answer is only predicated on the advantages of living in this country. In this setting, hard work and persistence will have a great chance of success with a foundation in family, close personal friends and laughter.

Their mentors are there as a support system to help them with emotional, psychological, and social challenges, she added. “Many have become lifelong friends with their mentors and their family members.” Now, with Roll Models, they hope to build on the success of the program but because the number of children with spinal cord injuries is relatively small, they are also reaching out to children with other illnesses, such as spina bifida and muscular dystrophy who are in wheelchairs for life, Bart said. “They have the same issues,” she noted, emphasizing that the matching process was “fun, understanding the personality of the kids and the mentors.” They are starting small, focusing on “quality, not quantity,” while hoping that program will be a support system not just for the children but also for the parents. The day after the event she said she was “really overwhelmed by the positive response, particularly from the parents. There was a lot of reassurance that it’s a good program and much needed.” And, as an indication of that, she said, they all exchanged contact information and were asking when the next group event would be. Soon. They hope to host an event this fall and one around the holidays, she said. Meanwhile, the new buddies will get together on their own and answer questions as they arise. Andy and Alessandro already have a play date planned. They’ll visit a local park that has a playground that’s accessible for those in wheelchairs. But they won’t be alone. Andy’s girlfriend and her able-bodied son, who’s also 5, plan to join the fun. To learn more go to HeadNorth go to or call (8580 3505199. Find Tadpole Adaptives at

Toni Cieri, broker/ owner of RE/MAX Distinctive, has earned the prestigious Certified Distress Property Expert® (CDPE) Designation, having completed extensive training in foreclosure avoidance with a particular emphasis on short sales. At a time when Toni Cieri millions of homeowners are struggling with the possibility of foreclosure, the skills and education accumulated by Cieri will help San Diego area residents and communities.
