By KAREN BRAINARD The debate continues as to whether concrete barriers down the center of State Route 67 would be a safety improvement with Ramona Community Planning Group members weighing in at their Sept. 5 meeting. Caltrans unveiled its State Route 67 Median Barrier Feasability Project at a public meeting Aug. 23. Five options are proposed: a concrete barrier, a metal barrier, a high tension cable barrier, a median buffer, and “no build,”

meaning no changes would occur. The project area is from Willow Road in Lakeside to Shady Oaks Drive in Ramona. Display boards of the options are available online at www.dot.ca.gov/dist11/Env_ docs/67FeasabilityStudy/index. html. Caltrans is accepting public comments until Sept. 23. Planner Carl Hickman, a licensed traffic engineer who works for the county, said he is surprised Caltrans is “fired up” about putting in concrete barriers. “I’m really concerned about

creating a whole new set of problems,” Hickman said. Because of driveways and side streets along the highway, Caltrans would have to open “gore points” along the barrier so residents in those areas could make a left turn, creating a new challenge, Hickman said. “They are going to have to look over those medians to see cars,” he explained. “I don’t think the barrier idea is good at all,” said planner Scotty Ensign, adding that it could just increase speed among drivers.

“Traffic studies have shown that when you divide a road, traffic speed tends to go up,” said Hickman. But RCPG member Paul Stykel said he drives that route every day and what scares him is drivers looking at emails and crossing over the double yellow line. A barrier would prevent the head-on collisions that have occurred and caused fatalities, members noted. Remembering a Julian wom-

Major drug bust nets 65 arrests By KAREN BRAINARD Operation Mountain Shadow, a nearly yearlong undercover drug sting in Ramona and Poway, ended Tuesday with 65 people taken into custody, about 80 percent of them from Ramona, more arrests expected, and drugs and illegal firearms seized, law enforcement officials announced. “These aren’t low level

FORUS kicks off school roof campaign By MAUREEN ROBERTSON A check for $50 from Ralph Kling kicks off Friends of Ramona Unified Schools’ (FORUS) campaign to reroof one or more of Ramona’s public schools. Kling’s check came with a note stating “thanks for all you do.” Dave Patterson, one of the founding members of FORUS, is in charge of fundraising for the roof campaign. He is working with Ed Anderson, maintenance and grounds supervisor for Ramona Unified School District, and a licensed roofer to assess the school roofs. Repairing or replacing leaky

roofs at several schools was among items on a proposed school bond that voters defeated in November. After the bond’s defeat, a group of Ramona residents responded to a Sentinel editorial asking “Now what?” The group formed Friends of Ramona Unified Schools, a California nonprofit corporation, and is in the process of applying for nonprofit status with the IRS. FORUS’ initial project, installing 34 vandal-proof soap dispensers with soap in Ramona’s secondary schools, is nearing completion, and money has been donated to replace

Dr. Jane Tanaka, also a FORUS founding member, served as fundraising chair for the Soap Project, the Drip Project to replace broken faucets and the Lifesaver Project for AED units. “In teenagers, sudden cardiac arrest is most likely to occur during strenuous exercise or within one hour after exercise,” said Tanaka. “The state of California strongly urges that

Ramona Unified moved teachers Lorraine “Pixie” Sulser and Leslie Wilson to the district office as “teachers on assignment” to work with Senior Director of Education Services Theresa Grace to coordinate and provide professional development related to Common Core implementation. The district has two years to spend the money, district Superintendent Robert Graeff said, noting that it is restricted money that can only be used for Common Core.

At the request of Trustee Rodger Dohm, the district may hold a workshop on Common Core and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math Education). “I think there’s going to be lots of discussion,” Dohm said at the school board’s August meeting. “I think community members are going to want to ask questions, too. I don’t think it’s just going to be us. I think we need to be educated as much as the community needs to maybe throw their ideas in as well as ask questions.” California adopted the new standards in 2010, and the education department developed the “CCSS Systems Implementation Guide” with suggestions and resources for districts, said Torlakson. “The guide takes the guesswork out of implementing a local plan,” he said.

Sparks pleads not guilty to causing crash that killed Ramona man, 74 A 19-year-old Lakeside man accused of causing a head-on crash that left a 74-year-old Ramona man dead pleaded not guilty to charges of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and driving on the wrong side of a divided highway causing death. Garrett Michael Sparks was arrested shortly after the collision, which occurred on San Vicente Road south of Warnock Drive about 7:40 p.m. Aug. 29, according to the California Highway Patrol. He posted $50,000 bail and was ordered to return to court Sept. 6 for arraignment. Sparks told authorities he took his eyes off the road for at least 10 seconds while he was reaching for

items that had fallen on his truck’s floorboard from the passenger seat, the CHP reported. His 2007 Ford Ranger drifted into oncoming traffic at about 50 mph and stuck a northbound 2000 Ford Ranger driven by Kenneth Frederick Crane of Ramona. Crane was pronounced dead at the scene from multiple blunt force injuries, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. Sparks was uninjured. Investigators determined alcohol was not a factor in the crash. Judge Charles Ervin scheduled a readiness conference for Sept. 20 and a preliminary hearing for Oct. 10.

County responds to winery complaints By KAREN BRAINARD San Diego County’s code compliance division has recently received a number of complaints targeting several Ramona wineries. Some complaints were not found to be valid, but records show that between July 30 and Aug. 15, six wineries in the Ramona Viticultural Area received warnings or citations for code compliance issues. One of the winery owners said he never received a notice and another said many of the claims proved to be false. Violations reported by the county included opening a tasting room without a change of use permit and hosting special events with-

Deputies search for driver who fled from stolen car An investigation was under way for a man who led deputies on a brief pursuit in a stolen car, authorities said. The pursuit started in the 900 block of Main Street at 11:19 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego County sheriff’s Lt. Jason Vickery. It ended about a minute and a half later with the suspect bailing on foot

in the alley behind 900 Main St., he said. Deputies searched for the suspect using police dogs and a helicopter for about 45 minutes but were unable to locate him. The vehicle, a maroon Honda Civic, was stolen from Carlsbad, Vickery said, adding that deputies were working to identify the man.

out a major use permit. According to the tiered winery ordinance, “events, including but not limited to weddings and parties, are prohibited.” Such for-profit events are allowed if the winery owner has an administrative permit or a major use permit, depending on the scope, said the county. A boutique winery can host an occasional not-forprofit party or event without a permit, said county staff, because that would be similar to the same rights held by other property owners. The intent of the ordinance, staff explained, was to prevent use of a boutique winery site

as a special event facility where the winery operators would hold such events for profit. San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved a tiered winery ordinance in August 2010 that would allow boutique wineries — those that produce 12,000 or less gallons of wine per year — to open tasting rooms by right on agricultural land zoned A70 or A72. Approximately 23 wineries in the Ramona area now have tasting rooms. Carolyn Harris, co-owner of Churparosa Vineyards, was involved in working with the county on the tiered ordinance and said it is structured so owners can

take small steps as their business grows. “We have these tiers in place for anyone who wants to expand their liberties,” she said. According to county staff, all the wineries that were cited are cooperating and taking steps to resolve the violations. County Planning and Development Services department policy does not allow proactive enforcement by the Code Compliance Division, said county staff. Code enforcement officers only respond to complaints from members of the public unless county staff observes a life/ healthy/safety condition on a property, staff said.

Judge orders work furlough in marijuana cultivation case By NEAL PUTNAM

A former Ramona man lost his bid to withdraw his guilty plea in a marijuana cultivation operation and was sentenced Friday to serve 120 days in a work furlough facility. Joshua Bennett Day, 27, wanted to withdraw his guilty plea because he learned that a felony conviction would bar him from working in security services or possibly interstate truck driving, according to documents filed by his attorney, James Pokorny. San Diego Superior Court Judge Laura Halgren denied the motion, so his guilty plea to cultivating marijuana stands. She said that since Day has a job that qualifies him for work furlough, he will spend 120 days there at nights and on weekends rather than county jail. Day received credits of two days in jail and fined $694 under terms of three years probation, according to court records. He has moved to El Cajon and will report to the work furlough center on Sept. 17. His attorney said that Day

was ill and was a medical marijuana patient at the time of his arrest. Days’ two former roommates, who also pleaded guilty to cultivation of marijuana, did not receive jail time and were ordered to do 18 days of public service work under terms of three years probation. They also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of the drug. Before the sheriff’s raid on Feb. 22 at their home in the 300 block of Fegahli Road in Ramona, a sheriff’s dog reacted to an odor from a package addressed to Day on Jan. 23 that was at the Fed Ex in Carlsbad, according to the search warrant. After a judge signed the warrant, deputies opened the parcel and found two envelopes containing $17,800 in money orders with a blank payee. The discovery prompted the drug bust. Deputies found two marijuana cultivation tents and high wattage lights in the house. In a closet were 44 marijuana stalks that were drying, and a pistol, court records say. Deputies seized 120 marijuana plants.

Grant to fund traffic light at 10th and H streets A traffic light likely will be installed next year at the intersection of 10th and H streets to improve safety for drivers and pedestrians, according to county staff. The county Department of Public Works secured a federal Highway Safety Improvement Program grant for $900,000 for the signal, said Terry Rayback, program manager of DPW’s Land Use Environmental Group and Capital Improvement Project Development. He expects to seek authority from county supervisors to advertise the project late this year and begin construction in early 2014. “There are several schools nearby, so

bus traffic and pedestrian volume are high,” Rayback said in an email. “Adding a traffic signal will improve vehicular and pedestrian safety by providing positive control for vehicles making turns and pedestrians crossing the road.” Ramona Community Planning Group approved the funding request for a traffic light in September 2012, after member Carl Hickman noted there had been 33 collisions in the past five years at the intersection. RCPG Chair Jim Piva also said the Ramona Fire Department wanted a signal at the intersection because of its proximity to Fire Station 80.

Heat wave brought out scorpions Besides making people uncomfortable, the recent hot, humid weather has another adverse effect. It brings out scorpions. “This is the normal weather for scorpions,” said Greg Fox, a Ramona resident and senior supervisor of Hearts Pest Management. Fox said he has been receiving more calls of scorpions lately, especially from residents in San Diego Country Estates. The nocturnal pests have the ability to flatten their bodies to go under thresholds of doors and get into houses, he said, but if they do get inside, it’s because they are lost, not because they want to set up home. Closely related to spiders, scorpions have a tail with a stinger and are poisonous, but the range of poison can vary, depending on the species, said Fox. “People respond to bites

or stings in different ways,” he said, adding, “If you get stung by it, it’s going to hurt.” Anyone who begins to swell should call the paramedics, he noted. The County of San Diego recommends, at www.sdcounty.ca.gov/ deh/pests/scorpions.html, that if stung, call a doctor or emergency services, remove the blood or venom from the area, and apply ice. Fox said residents who see a scorpion in the home should kill it, even by step-

ping on it to avoid a possible infestation, as females can produce 15 to 25 at a time. Avoid using a pest control spray, he recommended. Fox said he uses a wettable powder outside the home’s foundation and over stones where scorpions, who also love woodpiles, often live. — Karen Brainard

Business Shorts Homegrown couple buys Eiler Tire & Brake Nominations due By JESSICA KING

A fifth generation Ramonan and his wife are the proud new owners of Eiler Tire & Brake. Jake Harris and his wife, Leah, both 27, recently bought the automotive shop at 1743 Main St. from Mark Song, who purchased the decadesold shop from one of its original owners, Dale Eiler, in July 2008. The shop opened in the late 1980s as Eiler Brothers and was renamed Eiler Tire & Brake when Dale Eiler bought out his brother in 1996. Though Harris recently left his job as fleet technician with the county of San Diego to own and operate Eiler Tire & Brake, he is by no means a stranger to the business. Harris, an ASE certified mechanic, worked for Eiler from May 2004 to May 2008 and for Song from January 2011 to last September. “I’ve always wanted to own my own business and the opportunity was finally here,” said Harris, who hopes to one day expand

the shop should the space next door become available. “We’re not going to change the name or anything like that, at least not right away,” Harris said. “But expanding is one thing I’d like to do, to take over the entire building here.” The business is in the Main Street Auto Service Center at the corner of Main and Day streets. The other half of the center is occupied by Prestige Collision Center. Harris’ other plans for the business include getting it involved with the community. He said he would like to sponsor a local youth sports team and to partake in activities and programs through the Ramona Chamber of Commerce. “Absolutely. We’re definitely interested in being part of the community,” added Leah. “We’ve just turned our paperwork in to the chamber and are planning to be as involved as we can.” And, she said, “We do do more than just tires and

people do business with people they know, like and trust. In 33 years I’ve observed that most repeat business derives — directly or indirectly — from clients I’ve befriended. This shouldn’t suggest you do business with all your friends, but rather try to be friends with your clients. It’s a fine distinction, but one worth making. Like most people, I’ve known folks who start selling stuff and suddenly call me only to attend a home party or buy insurance. The days of wanting me for companionship for concerts, dinners, card games and friendship as its own reward quickly disappear — and so does the relationship. So if I’m doing business with a friend, I find it’s critical to insist at the outset that the friendship is the priority. If there’s ever a question of the business tainting the friendship, we both agree to walk away from the business relationship. Furthermore, any indication

and can go pretty much anywhere … but if we can support the community and the community can support us, it’ll be good for everyone and good for Ramona.” In addition to moral support, Leah, a 2012 National University business degree graduate, helps her husband with the books when she’s not busy with her career as an office technician and procurement specialist with Cal Fire in Rancho San Diego. The couple — a true homegrown pairing — has been together for 10 years and married for five, but they’ve known each other since grade school. They met around the third grade when their mothers worked yard duty together at Barnett Elementary and became best friends.

Alternately, I’ve had many clients over the years with whom I’ve become friends. We’ve done our share of concerts, lunches, sailing and the like. But because we’ve started from a business perspective, it’s a little different. We’re professionals first and friends second. Obviously, just being friends isn’t enough. I must also deliver the services sought and at a fair price. But the very fact that we’re friendly makes it possible for me to be part of the conversation. This sincerity in the relationship, rather than the “I like you just because you bring me business” approach, shows through. It also makes three things consistently happen in my world: 1. Folks unable to work with me for any reason stay in touch for social reasons; 2. Clients return to work with me — sometimes many years later;

CrossFitters cartwheel their way to $2,450 for charity Neighborhood CrossFit (NHCF) in Ramona recently completed a “Cartwheels for Collette” fundraiser that raised $2,450 for a Poway 2-year old scarred by a dog attack. The fundraiser, the brainchild of gymnastics coach Terri Hout, attracted approximately two

Pregnancy clinic offers parenting and childbirth preparation classes Ramona Pregnancy Care Clinic will host childbirth preparation and parenting classes this fall. A two-session childbirth preparation series will be held at the clinic, 1530 Main St., Suite 6, on Thursdays, Sept. 26 and Oct. 3 at 11:30 a.m. Class One will focus on the hospital experience such as when to go to the hospital, what will happen, tests and coping measures. Emergency birth will be discussed in case there is not enough time to get to the hospital. Class Two will focus on natural and drug-free childbirth. Epidural, labor positions and how to write a birth plan also will be discussed. Attendance at both classes is encouraged.

The series of free parenting classes at the clinic will begin on Monday, Oct. 7, and continue each Monday through Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. Via DVD, childbearing experts will share practical wisdom, honest confessions and decades of experience. “Essentials of Parenting: The Power of Love” shows how to enrich and enjoy the bond between child and parent. Participants will discover that a good relationship with their son or daughter is the sharpest tool in every parent’s toolbox when it comes to passing along their faith and values, say organizers. For more information or to register for either or both classes, call the clinic at 760-789-7059.

Free clinic to target horses’ feet on Saturday A saying as old as time, “no foot, no horse,” is as true today as it was when horses were the main vehicle for travel, says John Degenfelder of Ramona, inviting the public to his and wife Arvie’s Critterville Ranch for a free clinic on horses’ feet on Sept. 14. Equine veterinarian John Stewart, a Ramona resident from Ireland, will share his knowledge about equine feet at the clinic, scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon. Stewart, author of “Understanding the Horse’s Feet,” is a member of Ramona Trails Association, the nonprofit the Degenfelders helped establish. “All of us want to know what to look for and how to take care of our horse’s feet,” said Degenfelder. “If

It's up to us

A

s the community reels from two fatalities in separate accidents on San Vicente Road within one week, opinions vary whether the county’s planned road straightening and widening project to improve safety on that road will make a difference. Most agree they will, but the project — no matter how good — will not prevent future accidents. That’s up to us. Barring a driver having a heart attack or other medical emergency, an earthquake, lightning knocking a tree on a vehicle, or other act of God — common sense and staying alert should do it. Be safe, be aware, be proactive. Don’t speed, don’t drink and drive, don’t text while driving — you know the rest. We all do. Some of us were surprised when the county presented the San Vicente Road project plans to the community. It seems almost as much area is going to bike lanes and pathways as the two driving lanes. Bike lanes will allow teens not yet driving and others to cycle to and from the Estates. Pathways will allow equestrians and those on foot a safer route in and out of the Estates. Are they guarantees that a bicyclist, equestrian or walker never will be struck by a vehicle? No. Portions of San Diego have bike lanes that tourists and residents frequent, and we occasionally read of a fatality on them. We’re not engineers, and we know that not everyone will agree on San Vicente Road improvements — what they are or whether they even should be done. But let’s agree that we’re going to be proactive drivers, we’re going to convey the importance of attentive driving to our children, and we’re going to take the car keys from a friend or family member who obviously is intoxicated or otherwise impaired. Driving along San Vicente Road is a constant reminder that not all who travel it arrive home safely. Crosses, Deviney Lane — named for teenager Deviney Snider who died on a rainy evening in a November 1999 San Vicente Road accident — and now a makeshift memorial for the 18-yearold killed Aug. 22. On Aug. 29, a 74-oldman doing nothing wrong was killed when his vehicle was hit head-on by a vehicle manned by a suspected distracted driver. Let those crosses and Deviney’s name on the street sign serve as reminders to all of us who drive that road. We can put a stop to it.

intolerant, and resentful, with many of our collective, majority decisions, including election of representatives or governments. Unanimous decision by all the people is a utopia, which, I doubt, will ever be achieved. It is for this very reason we need an See DUTTAAHMED, page 9

What possibly could go wrong? By DARRELL BECK I’ve read Robert Krysak’s response to my Ramona Sentinel commentary, “Voices warning of tyranny,” and I agree with his premise that “ignorance and apathy are our real enemies.” Even though Bob and I often debate on opposite sides of politics, I respect his reasoned opinion and his keen interest in the founders of our government and the Constitution. When I think about how the government of the United States and the

founding documents were conceived through all of the disagreement, debate and violent revolution, I see a miracle that I believe must be a work of divine providence. The Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights and other amendments that lay out the foundation of our law are written in such a straightforward manner and are so concise they can be printed in a booklet so small that it will fit in a shirt pocket, yet so See Beck, page 9

Sentinel Reader Opinion Maybe we can erase some of the hurt After reading the very sad case of the bedeviled Wannabe Boutique Winery, I felt I had to write you about another stupid miscarriage of justice by government mismanagement. Dave Bittner, who founded the grasslands project and “hawk talks,” has worked hard for the people of Ramona to preserve our grasslands, added many acres to the project, built nice easy rock-free trails with beautiful scenery and all kinds of wildlife to enjoy. The “hawk talks” went from a few souls attending to hundreds of people learning to appreciate and preserve our now abundant wildlife. How does the U.S. attorney thank him? Among the six permits that are demanded by the authorities, Dave let one lapse by less than one year in 2010. For this misdemeanor offense, he was fined $7,500 and put on probation for three years. We are so lucky to have an outstanding biologist who has improved the lives of residents and animals and birds. His assistance to companies of electric power lines and wind power have saved many bird lives. In addition to a lapsed permit g

involved and informed citizenry. Did we not decide to choose our systems to be like that — collective, majority decision by the people? Or, do we like to have a civil war such as those between Shias and Sunnis, Protestants and Catholics, or upper and lower castes? • Yes, we have our individual opinions, and likes and dislikes. Even our own values are different from our siblings, from our parents, and from our children. Are they not? We live our lives by finding common grounds, sometimes, if not often, compromises. • If we are in a democracy — we claim it is the best in the world — then we should always try for an all-inclusive voting base, and make it easy to vote. Why then so many of us, in many states, try to restrict voting people and voting by people in various ways? •One writer expressed his dislike about hyphen-

(he is busy), then said he should have given them the dead birds immediately so they could be used for religious ceremonies by Native Americans. It looks like that agency deserves the “minimanagement stupid government award” for doing an even worse job than the demeaning, poorly run Bureau of Indian Affairs. As they said in the book and movie, Oliver Twist, “If the government thinks that, the government is an ass.” I hope when you see Dave you thank him for all he’s done and tell him how much you appreciate his hard efforts over the years. Maybe we can erase some of the hurt our stupid government has caused. D. Mittricker Ramona

Why We Walk Every 74 seconds, someone dies from breast cancer. Judy Kay got breast cancer at 39 years of age. She survived for 24 years and now she is battling it again. She is our aunt. Suzette beat breast cancer two years ago, yet she is now supporting her younger sister Stephanie with the disease. Both of them are under 45 years of age. She is our friend.

It’s personal. They are our friends, families, ourselves. We all are connected to someone who is battling this disease. We all are humbled by breast cancer’s reach into our lives. The battle continues. Join us in the fight again — with thousands of Komen 3-Day walkers nationwide as we bring attention to this case — and provide monetary support necessary for research, education and treatment. Your donation benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. Consider this your annual donation that is making a real difference and saving lives. Impact. Make one. Team Ramona Beauties has raised over $70,000 for breast cancer over the past eight years of participation. This success is due in a large part to donations. We hope we can count on your support again this year. The Susan G. Komen is a nonprofit agency, so any donation you provide is 100 percent taxdeductible (tax ID 75-1835298). We are hosting our sixth annual wine tasting fundraiser on Sept. 17 at Ramona Beauty Supply and Salon. All proceeds go

to breast cancer research, education and treatment. We encourage donations of a gift card or gift basket to support the opportunity drawing held during the event. We are happy to pick up any donations if you are local, or you may mail your donation to 636 Main St., Ramona, CA 92065. You can also donate online (go to The3Day.org and locate our name: Team Ramona Beauties), by phone at 800-996-3DAY, or by check. Make checks payable to Susan G.

We could make matters worse The misuse of chemicals in warfare has been called a “moral obscenity.” Why is it more obscene than war itself? Both are primarily concerned with killing people.

ated identity of Americans, which I dislike, too, in favor of one single word identification: American. But, why so much clamoring about state identification and state rights? If we cannot have a single set of laws for all Americans, why are we one nation? The origin of state in our system is political and historical, sometimes feudalistic, nearly 300 years old. Most of the original and historical reasons do not exist now. Furthermore, we have added many more states to the original 13. The states do not represent any monolithic culture. Now, it is almost the same culture in all states. State boundaries are mostly straight lines with some adjustments for natural geographical features. Keeping the original boundaries, are the states not primarily an administrative unit? True, associated with it some local power structure has evolved. Gerrymander-

ing of voting districts are mostly manifestations of political power play. •We are a land of immigrants, other than Native Americans. We came here with our ethnic cultural backgrounds, which are merging, slowly but surely, into a single one. Slow, evolutionary process is the best process, comes naturally, from heart and necessities, whereas fast, which often means imposed — generally by socio-economic power groups — that comes with resentment. So, what is the rush? Finally, one of my favorite metaphors: Difference between evaporation and boiling. Both processes convert liquid molecules into gas molecules. Molecules in liquid phase are in random motion and have different energies. In their random motion, some liquid molecules would reach the liquidgas surface line; if one has enough momentum,

it will pierce through the surface and enter into the gas phase. So, the process is slow — one molecule at a time provided it has enough energy. In the boiling process, energy is externally supplied so that all molecules are energized; many molecules reach the surface and have enough energy to escape into the gas phase. So, the process is fast — many molecules have been energized to escape because of the external stimulus of energy. Increased and almost universal opportunity. Only about 5 percent of us have the opportunity to move into a better state of life and living — almost an anecdote for achieving the American dream. We as a nation should collectively strive and work to create opportunity for the most to truly form a ONE NATION. A. Duttaahmed Ph.D. is a Ramona resident.

nationally illegal. We seem to have forgotten that we, the United States of America, used that illegal atom bomb anyway because we were attacked and felt justified. Isn’t it obvious that those who used the illegal chemical warfare might consider themselves attacked and feel justified? If so, nothing we can do will improve the situation. Anything we do might make things worse. The world has a right to feel cynical as it watches us trying to decide, with self-righteous fervor, that it is our duty to punish others for breaking rules that we once broke with impunity. The future for humanity often seems bleak with a present generation that refuses to learn the rules of life from nature and ignores the lessons of the past. Perhaps we could influence a better future by providing help for the millions of traumatized children in the refugee camps. Because perhaps this is the generation that will finally understand the futility of war, that it solves nothing and is a waste of time. Wasting time is the ultimate folly as each of us lives to discover — in the end. Edalee Orcutt Harwell Ramona From page 8

powerful as to be the guiding beacon for this great nation. Contained within the Declaration of Independence are the words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” This is a most important statement that I believe is the essence of our future as a free nation, but a belief I think is not being taught to present generations, leaving the question: Are we being taught to place our faith in government as our provider and master and thus become its subjects, or are we to believe in the individual as a free man guided by a higher power? The First Amendment states that Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or

abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances, among other rights. The Bill of Rights is unique by placing limits on Congress, prohibiting it from making laws that would act to restrict freedoms. The birth of America was possibly the only instance in recorded history where the founders of the government actually ceded power to the people by writing the Second Amendment, understanding that the people had a right to self-defense, existing long before the U.S. government was formed by recognizing that our rights come from God, and not from the governments of man. And because America was created as a government of the people, this meant it was the citizen’s duty to be informed, to be armed, to be vigilant See Beck, page 10

various events, like the fair and the many color guards around town. They also did many things you probably didn’t know about. Some cadets learned to sail at the annual Sail Academy at Fiddler’s Cove in Coronado,

at Barona during the annual Mud Run the following week. Many cadets helped some veterans in need with the VFW at the Annual Veterans Stand Down in San Diego. If you were wondering who was doing the dirty work at the fair and throwing away trash and sorting recyclables, those workers were also NJROTC cadets. And they helped the Pearl Harbor Survivors in the Fourth of

July Parade by carrying the flags around their float. Before the school year starts, new cadets learn the basics of NJROTC at the annual Freshman Orientation, in which the older cadets teach the newer ones the basics of drills and the chain of command. Over 40 cadets participated and showed their enthusiasm for the upcoming year. In early August, the 2013-14 chain of command was announced as:

Cadet Lieutenant Commander Carlo Silva, commanding officer, and Cadet Lieutenant Kevin Carmona, executive officer, along with many other jobs in charge of the company’s structure such as a community service officer, supply officer and administration officer.

branches of government; Legislative, Executive and Judicial and laying out all of the methods by which the government functions. Article 1, Section 8, states the powers that were originally granted by the individual states as the means to establish the U.S. central or federal government. In that section, the Constitution delegates 18 specific duties to the federal government, seven of which deal with military defense of the nation against enemies both foreign and domestic. The others concern taxes, debt, coining and borrowing money, post office and post roads, naturalization, promotion of useful science and arts, patents and making laws to carry out these powers. The commerce clause and the welfare clause have proven to be the most controversial and misused powers of the federal government, along with having control of the printing presses, and that’s where mischief and tyranny are often spawned. According to my interpretation of the U.S. Constitution, Congress has no constitutional right to pass legislation providing national health care such as the misnamed “Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act,” nor does Congress have the constitutional authority to meddle in state education issues such as its latest federal funding for standards called “Common Core,” nor can be found any language or power to claim control of the natural occurrence of summer and winter, traditionally known as weather or climate change, but now called global warming. Nevertheless, once our elected representatives arrive in Washington, D.C.,

and get too far away from the people who elected them, they seem to develop amnesia and many forget their oaths to uphold the Constitution, or for that matter to even understand the Constitution. They keep pushing the envelope further and further; then the Supreme Court makes an irrational decision like Justice Roberts did with Obamacare, each time setting some imaginary precedent and before we can say “fast and furious” we find the federal government in charge of health care, education, car manufacturing, food stamps, housing, college tuition, cell phones, global warming, carbon dioxide, swamp gas, vernal pools, fairy shrimp, light bulbs and federal limits on the use of toilet paper. During my lifelong search through history, I tend to

heed the quotes and warnings from those men of history, regardless of whether their positions rest on the right or the left and despite the fact they are dead, because much knowledge is found in the words from those who have acquired wisdom through a lifetime of experience. Of course I, too, could fill the pages of this newspaper with quotes from current political leaders, bringing us their false words and broken promises claiming they are emissaries from the government bearing great gifts such as Obamacare, even though many of us don’t want the assistance they offer. So while I have lived through the experiences of depressions, recessions, wars, floods, fires, global warming, several ice ages, 13 presidents and plenty of political scandals, I just

can’t bring myself to be cheered by the specter of Obamacare — a health care plan we are forced to purchase and penalized if we don’t, which purportedly covers a least 30 million more people without adding a single doctor but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents who will enforce it, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress who didn’t read it but somehow were exempted from it, signed by a president who says it won’t cost a dime, and for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government that has essentially bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all financed by a government that’s broke. What possibly could go wrong?

tect against the same kind of tyranny from which they had won their independence. Because many of the founders feared losing their hard-won freedoms by creating an overly powerful central government like the monarchy they had just defeated, they wrote the Tenth Amendment reserving all powers not delegated to the U.S. by the Constitution,

nor prohibited by it, to the states, to the states respectively, or to the people. This is often referred to as the “State’s Right’s Amendment,” yet often ignored by the states who favor federal funding over sovereignty, and frequently violated by the central government to usurp power from the states. Finally, contained in the Constitution are found the powers of the three

Kurt Torsak of the sheriff’s Ramona substation was at the RCPG meeting. When planners asked for his opinion, he offered this statement from the Sheriff’s Department: “We support a safer Highway 67 and addressing the design of the roadway of 67 should be part of an overall safety plan.” RCPG Chair Jim Piva said six to seven years ago a meeting was held at Supervisor Dianne Jacob’s office about barriers down the center of 67.

ed the barriers, he said. According to Hickman, there are about 60 driveways off 67 between Archie Moore Road and Highland Valley Road. Piva said a barrier in that stretch would cause more problems than it would solve, and made a motion requesting no barriers from Highland Valley Road west to Quail Rock Road, which is just past Shady Oaks Drive. The motion passed with Stykel opposed and Donna Myers abstaining. Route 67 is scheduled to be widened to four lanes. RCPG Secretary Kristi Mansolf said she contacted San Diego Association of Governments and it still plans to widen the highway from Mapleview Road in Lakeside to HIghland Valley/

Dye Road in Ramona by 2030 with construction possibly starting in 2021. The public can provide Caltrans with comments on the median barrier study by emailing Ct.public.Information.d11@dot.ca.gov or mailing to Caltrans District Office, 4050 Taylor St., MS-121, San Diego, CA 92110.

Unicorn stages book signing for Ramona author Ramona resident David H. Van Cleve presents a humorous insight into his 32 years with California State Parks in his book, “Have a Nice Day Job.” The public will have an opportunity to talk with Van Cleve while he signs copies of his book at Unicorn Books and Gifts, 738 Main St., on Saturday, Sept. 14, from 3 to 5 p.m. As a park ranger, park ecologist and park superintendent, Van

Cleve said he had several wonderful assignments throughout California. In his book, he relates a series of accounts about his experiences, which range from weird arrests like putting a bad guy in jail for littering in a state park and contacting illegal campers at 11,000 feet in his underwear to unique situations such as backpacking in a tuxedo on duty one evening out of necessity and making a date

with a nudist on Black’s Beach. Mixed metaphors and malapropisms keep the stories light and amusing. Throughout the book, Van Cleve conveys the deep respect and gratitude he has for members of the “parks family” with whom he worked. Van Cleve earned his bachelor’s degree in geography and environmental studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and his master’s in geography at the Uni-

versity of California, Santa Barbara. He credits the original Earth Day in the spring of 1970 with giving him a permanent nudge toward a career in conservation. He lists the most important achievement of his life as creating the “Banana Slugs” as the mascot for the sports teams at UC Santa Cruz in 1970. It since has become regarded as one of the most iconic college mascots in the nation.

Water board leaves Division II seat as is By KAREN BRAINARD The fate of Director Christopher “Kit” Kesinger’s Division II seat on the Ramona Municipal Water District Board is in the hands of his constituents, say board members. With Kesinger absent for his eighth consecutive meeting Aug. 27, the other four directors steered away, by a 4-0 vote, from sending him a letter asking for his voluntary resignation after he indicated he would not do so. Kesinger requested he be allowed to vote on meeting items either remotely or by proxy. That request was not granted at the Aug. 27 meeting as voting by proxy is not allowed under the Municipal Water Code and, although teleconferencing is permitted under the Brown Act, the state’s open meeting law, Director Rex Schildhouse said it would open the door to excessive requirements and costs. Requirements under the Brown Act for teleconferencing from a remote location include posting an agenda at that location and making the spot accessible to the public for participation. “I don’t think this is something we should even consider,” said Director George Foote. The water board meets the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at 2 p.m., a time that Kesinger, who works as a quality manager for Decco Castings in El Cajon, said is difficult for him to attend. Meetings were held at 4:30 p.m. when Kesinger was elected in November 2010, but in June 2012 the majority of the board voted to change the time to 2 p.m. In January, Kesinger said he had only been able to attend about 50 percent of the meetings due to the time change. Directors are

paid $100 per meeting but only if they attend. The board began discussing Kesinger’s meeting absence July 23 when he had not shown up in three months. On Aug. 13 the board directed President Darrell Beck to draft a letter asking for Kesinger’s resignation and place it on the Aug. 27 agenda for review. “To me it appeared he abandoned his seat,” said Beck. “Looking at the letter we have here is a moot point. We already have his answer,” he said, adding that the board can’t force Kesinger to resign or to attend meetings so the seat will be empty. “I think this is a constituency problem,” said Zenovic, noting the public could recall him. Zenovic said Kesinger’s election goals included recycled water and the board is moving down that path without him. “If Division II wants to be represented, then Division II knows what it has to do,” he said. Schildhouse asked Legal Counsel Brooke Miller with Best Best & Krieger about declaring his seat vacant. Miller said that can be done if Kesinger is not performing his duties but he could legally challenge it, which could become expensive for the district. “I think we ought to have someone sitting here,” Schildhouse said. “We’ve been doing fine with four members. I agree five would be nice,” responded Zenovic. Schildhouse, who told the Sentinel that he is a fan of what and how Kesinger thinks, added during directors’ comments: “My goal is to get representation by the entire district. I think Division II should be represented by someone active.”

Harvesting Ramona Valley’s grapes By TERI KERNS Harvest. The thought brings warm memories and slightly anxious anticipation — for a winemaker, it’s akin to Christmas. I started preparing for harvest in July, carefully choosing what yeast to pair with what varietal, continuing to learn more about our craft, wondering — should I stick with BM45 (an Italian Isolate. We’ve had good success with the Brunello clone from Paciello Vineyards) or try something new, like the recently available Rockpile strain that comes from the famous California’s AVA (American Viticulural Area)

of the same name. Then, there’s the whispered rumors, some Ramona Vineyards might have some Petite Syrah available, there could be extra Cab! The Brunello clone (a cousin of Sangiovese) is doing well, we may get more than what we got last year. The anticipation builds, and with it, some anxiety. Will we correctly anticipate the harvest needs and have enough supplies? Will the grapes come in at our ideal numbers, brix (sugar) around 24.5, TA (Titratable Acids) around .7, and the PH between 3.2 and 3.8. As the grapes ripen, the brix (sugar) will go up, while

Hand sorting Ramona Ranch grapes

the TA (acid) drops, so we are looking to time the harvest when all three numbers are in our desired ranges. If you wait too long, the acid will drop, the grapes will over-ripen, and you’ll get a “fruit bomb,” which may be better suited to port. An old saying goes, “good wine is made in a lab, and great wine is made in the vineyard.” Sure, if the acid is too low, we can add some citric acid, a natural product to bump it up, and some commercial wineries do just that, but our goal is to truly express the terrior (feeling) of the Ramona vineyards with a naturally balanced wine. You get there by working the vineyard owner, who must be a skilled farmer, a risk taker, and a bit of a fortune teller. Good wine grapes enjoy the same things we do: dappled sun, a bit of a cool breeze, and enough room to stretch. The vineyard manager’s job is to provide those perfect conditions by removing leaves, dropping excess fruit to control the vines' natural vigor and allowing the selected clusters the room to thrive.

Ramona Valley harvesting started early this year, midAugust, and will likely go through October. We’ll pick on the weekends, necessary when you are a beginning winemaker, and need to rally your friends. Here at Ramona Ranch, we rely on our friends, including fellow Ramona Valley Vineyard members as well as our equestrian friends to bring in the harvest, often seeing the same “crew” go from vineyard to vineyard on any weekend. The grapes must come in when they are ready. To pick too early runs the risk of a green or vegetal tasting wine. To pick too late can result in too much of that

The Sunny Side Strings to play in concert on Friday By JESSICA KING An American roots band comprised of four Ramonans and an Escondido resident is set to perform a free concert at Wynola Pizza and Bistro this Friday. The Sunny Side Strings is a relatively new group, having formed earlier this year, but its five members bring years' worth of musicianship to the table. As an American roots band, The Sunny Side Strings is made up of all acoustic instruments and touts a playlist that encompasses bluegrass, old time,

country, blues and more. Candace Regel, owner of The Blinds Spot and Regel Floors at 707 Main St., organized the band specifically to provide entertainment at a Ramona Chamber of Commerce mixer in March. Regel, who is also a horse trainer and riding instructor, said the mixer was co-hosted by one of her riding students, whose family owns the high-end furniture and lighting fixture company, The Dusty Oak. As a favor to her student, Regel, a guitarist, said she would help with the entertainment and set

about to find other musicians to round out her act. She contacted two former bandmates she played with as part of the nowdisbanded Poway-based all-strings group, Rattlesnake Creek. Those former bandmates, bassist Bob Carpenter of Escondido and Ramona music teacher Lisa Klopp, who plays mandolin, agreed to play. Regel also got nurse practitioner and professional fiddle player Karen Orozco and merchant marine and banjo player Greg Revers on board. They also live in Ramona.

County kicks off free concert series in Dos Picos Park Five hours of music, craft booths, food and other refreshments in Dos Picos County Park will start at noon Saturday, Sept. 14, when the county kicks off its Concerts in the Park fall series. County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation is presenting the free concerts to benefit the San Diego Parks Society and music programs for at-risk youth. Others will be held this fall in other San Diego County parks. A $3 parking fee

will be charged at Dos Picos Park at 17956 Dos Picos Park Road. Performances at the Dos Picos event include The Bassics, specializing in The Beatles and oldies, the Latin-inspired salsa of the Afrojazziacs, and Steal Dawn, featuring contemporary rock hits. The band lineup is: •Noon to 12:40 p.m., The Bassics •1 to 2 p.m., Affrojazziacs •2:30 to 3:30 p.m., Steal Dawn

•4 to 5 p.m., Steal Dawn Opportunity drawings with “terrific gifts” will be held, said Dave Holt, a San Diego parks district manager, and food and drink will be available for purchase. Food trucks — InSliders and Two for the Road — will offer such fare as sliders, fries, lobster rolls, crabcakes and salmon burgers, he said. In addition, vendors will be on hand selling their crafts. Ramona Rotary Club members

will man the beer garden. Proceeds after expenses will go to Ramona Rotary Foundation to benefit the club’s scholarship fund and community projects. The concert will be in the eastern part of the park where the bands will play in the covered gazebo, and families can sit at shaded picnic tables or on blankets in the grass area. For more information, visit www. sdcounty.ca.gov/parks.

The band practiced about six times before the March mixer and performed with no specific plans for what would come next. The performance was so well received that the group was asked to play again and again and again around town. Since the mixer, The Sunny Side Strings has performed at the National Day of the Cowboy at Mountain Valley Ranch, the Ramona Branch Library and the Ramona Country Fair. “It’s just been fantastic,” said Regel. “I was away from guitar for 20 years until I joined Rattlesnake Creek … I was so sad to see it go (when it disbanded) and so to have the new band come together is just wonderful.” The band plans to release its first CD around the first of the year, and hopes to hear cuts from it played on the web-based radio station Ramonaradio.com, run out of the Ramona Music Center at 1045 Main St.

I’m seeing parrots. What about you?

I know the weather in Ramona is great, but I didn’t know we went tropical! I’ve been seeing parrots. Have you? Green parrots have been living in Ramona for several years now. I was thinking who tracks these birds, as I’ve watched them grow in number. And then I found out. SoCal Parrot is a local nonprofit that rescues and rehabilitates injured and orphaned naturalized parrots. It is the only local organization dedicated to rehabilitating and protecting wild parrots. Its values are to rescue, educate and protect these majestic green birds.

San Diego actually has several hundred wild and naturalized parrots thriving, while their population numbers continue to decline in their own native habitats. An element that drives SoCal Parrot is that some species of our local parrots are listed as endangered. These same parrots are taken from nests as babies and sometimes even smuggled across borders illegally for the pet trade. SoCal Parrot believes that these birds are intelligent and unique, and they hope to keep them wild and protect them for future generations to enjoy. Broke Durham founded SCP when she was working at Project Wildlife. On a particular day, a pair of naked nestling parrots were blown out of their tree, nest and all, in spring of 2007 and brought to the Project Wildlife Triage Center during one of Brooke’s shifts. Because these green Amazon parrots were not considered native wildlife in San Diego, no real protocol existed to deal with the baby orphans. With the help of another Project Wildlife technician who had expe-

rience with domestic baby parrots, Brooke and her husband Josh raised the pair to be a members of her own personal flock/family. These particular parrots were too young to avoid imprinting on humans and had no chance of being released as wild birds, but the idea is beginning to take hold among wildlife agencies that there may be a chance for a parrot release program someday. Many of the species of parrot found in the wild in Southern California are critically endangered in their native ranges, with habitats dwindling and little hope of preserving those wild instincts. Brooke founded the SoCal Parrot nonprofit to bridge the gap of care and consideration that naturalized parrots fall into because they are neither native wildlife nor truly domestic. I had the pleasure of meeting Fiona, one of their volunteers who also started as a volunteer with Project Wildlife in San Diego. She was already working with wild flocks when she met Brooke, who introduced her to the world of wild parrots.

Most of the organization’s team members have a background in wildlife rehabilitation. If you’ve seen them or heard their wild squawk, you aren’t imagining it. We have flocks of green parrots living in the wild in San Diego County, and Ramona has a large flock of its own. They look just like a green parrot from South America. In fact, that’s where they may be from. There are many theories as to how they got here; some even call it urban legend. When I asked Fiona, she said that the one thing she could say for sure about these flocks was that birds who comprise our wild flocks today are undoubtedly descendants of wild caught birds. Meaning, pet birds would not have the skills to thrive in a wild environment and adjust the way these parrots have done. So, that leads me to believe that poachers who were going to get caught and arrested released their evidence into the wild — and surprise — they are now thriving all over California. If you see them around,

then just enjoy the sights and sounds of them. If you want to help our local naturalized parrots, you can fill out a brief survey on the SoCalparrot.org website that helps them track and monitor the flocks as well as determine appropriate release sites. “Our naturalized parrots are definitely ‘hybridizing,’ which can be a complicated subject in aviculture,” Fiona said. “Basically, in their native territories these species of birds would never cross paths but here they obviously do. Hybridizing is one of the many reasons we need more research on our wild parrots.” I wondered how they could survive the winters up here. After all, we are in a mountain desert region, not that comfortable for tropical birds. But Fiona says that these parrots enjoy our mild Southern California climate. The naturalized parrot species are thriving in climates that are even cooler than ours, for instance the famous flock of conures in the Telegraph Hill area of San Francisco. Fiona explained that both the parrots

and hummingbirds have expanded their territories and are thriving because of our love for subtropical ornamental plants. They are two of the few species that actually benefit from human cohabitation. They think there are around 50 flocks in San Diego County, but more research is needed to get a firm grasp on the numbers. It’s probably safe to say there are hundreds, if not thousands of psittacines in the county. There are also confirmed flocks in Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. Wow, they can breed! So let’s keep planting those subtropical plants they love and enjoy our new tropical climate, thanks to the birds. If you find a hurt or abandoned parrot, please call the SoCal Parrot Hotline (858-522-0852) and talk to a trained volunteer. If needed, they will send a team to assess the situation. They are working to develop relationships with local veterinarians and animal services. For more information, visit www.socalparrot. org. Facebook.com/socalparrot Jae Marciano is a Ramona resident.

Mitey Dawgs start strong The Ramona Mitey Dawgs’ football team beat Valley Center, 33-6, in the season opener on Saturday. This was after a pre-season 28-6 win over Poway the previous week. Head Coach Manny Lutz called the Mitey Dawgs’ defense unstoppable. Tackles by Peyton Silva, Josiah Bowman, Cole Mattson, Gabriel Muñoz, Brayden Nungesser, Chance Mattson, Nickolas Driscoll, Reese Lucero and Gabriel Lutz, combined with a quarterback strip and recovery by Colin Nungesser, were key to the Dawgs’ success. Adding to the score was an offense led by quarterback Brayden Nungesser that orchestrated plays resulting in three touchdowns, the first by Bowman. Mason Wrenn pushed through a wedge play charged by the offensive line for a second touchdown, and Chance Mattson ran in for the third touchdown. Colin Nungesser then caught a pass from Chance Mattson and ran in for the Dawgs’ fourth touchdown of the game. Lucero gained 2 extra points after the fourth touchdown. The game was officially over after the Dawgs’ offense drove in a touchdown made by Cole Mattson and an extra point from Bowman.

Bulldogs beat Point Loma, 21-19, face tough Grossmont team Friday By BILL TAMBURRINO As Yogi Berra would say, “It looked like déjà vu all over again.” The Bulldog football team got off to a fast start against Point Loma High School and led the Pointers 14-0 after two possessions. It looked like a repeat of last week’s rout of El Cajon Valley High School. Then a couple of bad bounces, a special teams mistake, a pass interception off a tipped pass for a TD, and a very physical second half turned the game into a white-knuckler that the Bulldogs hung onto to win 21-19 on Sept. 6. It took less than two minutes to take a 7-0 lead. Ramona’s Brandon Gansch

ran through a hole opened by Patrick Hastings, Mike Hoover, Trae Rodriguez, William Rieve, Clayton Cooke and Matt Lawler and dashed untouched for a 43-yard touchdown. Tyler Vargas added the PAT. The Dawg defense forced Point Loma to punt after six plays, and the Dawgs marched 65 yards in five plays that were capped by a 34-yard Nathan Cherek touchdown run. The Dawgs had a 14-0 lead with 2:33 remaining in the first quarter. The Pointers drove 80 yards for a score to make it 14-7, and then the Pointers picked off a Marco Cobian pass that was tipped and returned it for a 47-yard score. The PAT was wide

left and the Dawgs held on to a 1 point lead. After trading punts, the Dawgs drove 43 yards in four minutes and scored a Tanner “T-Bone” Williams 2-yard run to take a 21-13 halftime advantage. On Point Loma’s first possession of the second half, it appeared that the Dawg defense had held as they forced a punt. The punt was muffed. A muff is a ball touched by the receiving team that becomes a loose ball. It can be recovered by the kicking team but not advanced. Point Loma recovered the muffed punt and drove for a score. The 2-point conversion attempt failed and Ramona held on to a 2119 lead.

The Pointer defense held Ramona to a three and out. Ramona only ran three offensive plays in the third quarter. The defense was on the field almost the entire period. “Keyshaun Crichlow, in his first varsity start at linebacker, played a heck of a game and was our defensive player of the game,” said Coach Damon Baldwin. Point Loma appeared to be marching for a goahead touchdown on the initial drive of the final quarter. The Ramona defense was tired, as it had not had a break from the heat and had been on the field for most of the second half, but the players remained scrappy. Then they came up with the play that saved the game. Christian Dominquez stripped the ball from a Pointer ball carrier as he was going in for a touchdown. The fumble took a Ramona bounce and Garrett Binkley recovered the ball inside the 1 yard line. See FOOTBALL on page 31

The doubles teams won 8 of 9 team points in the Clairemont victory on Tuesday. Lauren Dunker and Rebecca Vaca went 6-0, 6-1 and 6-1. Cassidy Owens and Danielle Vizcarra took three sets with scores of 6-2, 6-1 and 7-5. Alyssa Virgilio and Caroline Lopresti won two sets with scores of 3-6, 6-0 and 6-1. Amanda Massey, Jessie Mosser and Megan Douglass each won two sets each in singles action. Massey went 1-6, 6-0 and 6-2, Mosser carded scores of 1-6, 6-0 and 6-0, and Douglass went 1-6, 6-0 and 6-2. “I was pleased with the solid play of our returning letter winners and I was pleasantly surprised with the play of the newcomers to varsity competition,” said Matt McCormick after his initial win as the Lady Bulldog head coach. McCormick was even happier with his team’s play against Carlsbad as the Bulldogs won a 9-9 match by besting 74 games to Carlsbad’s 72. “Carlsbad is a Division I team that usually reaches See TENNIS on page 31

By JOE NAIMAN Ramona and Helix are against Mission Hills Jesse Reiling scored both in Division II for CIF Ramona High School’s “We hadn’t played that By BILL TAMBURRINO Girls golf had only one match last week but it was a big one. Coach John Rathbun’s Lady Dawgs beat Mission Hills on the road at Twin Oaks Country Club 247-311. “We stumbled a bit but we still scored our lowest team score of the year,” Rathbun said of the Sept. 5 match. “That really tells me that our team consistency is getting better each week. Cheyenne (Hockin) came through and shot her career low round, a 49. Great job!” When Rathbun talked about team consistency, he may have had the group-

ing of his team’s scores in mind. Kailey Hill led Ramona with a 46. Caitlyn Doulgeropoulos was one stroke behind, carding a 47. Hockin followed with her 49. Rachel Costan shot 51, and Amanda Raines fired a 54. Bre Hirsh added a 59. Hirsh, a senior, has played three sports at Ramona High School in an age of single sport athletes. She played volleyball her frosh and sophomore years. She will enter her fourth year of softball and her second varsity campaign. She started playing golf her junior year. “I played some with my dad (Jeff) but just for fun and not competitively,” she said. Hirsh made the squad as a junior and earned a letter. She is a 3.6 student who plans to study nursing at Azusa Pacific.

We’re not going to get there

much together.” Ramona’s 8-7 win at Helix included the Highlanders scoring the game’s final two goals, one of which was with a minute remaining to narrow the margin to one score. Ramona led 3-1 after the first period. Helix took a 5-3 halftime lead, but Ramona scored both third-quarter goals and had an 8-5 lead in the fourth quarter before Helix closed out the scor-

Holas made six saves while sharing goalkeeping duties with Jack Sundberg, who had three saves.

Capt. Bill Donahue with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, flanked by officials representing different law enforcement agencies, announces the 65 arrests in Ramona and Poway through an undercover drug operation at a news conference Tuesday. Next to Donahue is District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis and at far left is Lt. James Bovet of the Sheriff’s Ramona station.

hue described those arrested in Ramona as an “older, more experienced group of suspects that have significant priors,” while the suspects in Poway were a younger demographic selling narcotics. Bovet told the Sentinel that some of those arrested have been selling drugs for 20 years. Bill Sherman, DEA special agent in charge, said many arrested were more than drug traffickers, and the operation has taken a lot of dangerous criminals off the street. “Poway and Ramona are definitely a safer place today,” he said. Operation Mountain Shadow was launched in October 2012 in response to numerous citizen complaints, said the Sheriff’s

child abuse charges, according to the lieutenant. Approximately 150 sheriff’s deputies and federal agents partnered in Operation Mountain Shadow. In addition to the Sheriff’s Department, agencies included DEA Violent Trafficking Team; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; U.S. Marshals Service; Regional Auto Theft Task Force; San Diego County District Attorney’s Office; U.S. Attorney’s Office; U.S. Border Patrol; Narcotic Task Force; and FBI Violent Gang Task Force.

Department. Dumanis said they saw a spike in crime in Ramona and Poway that was tied to heroin and methamphetamine trafficking. “We will track you down and will take your drug operation down link by link,” Dumanis said. During the crackdown, undercover sheriff’s deputies and DEA agents conducted “buy-walk” operations, purchasing meth, heroin, cocaine and firearms from suspects, the Sheriff’s Department reported. Accidental overdoses by heroin users, ages 20 to 29, had risen, the district attorney said, with youths who abused prescription drugs often turning to heroin because it is cheaper and easier to get.

Members of San Diego County Sheriff’s Department meet by a house off Old Julian Highway, just west of Cinnamon Rock Road.

Bovet said that many believe because Ramona is a semi-rural area “they think they can get away with it, and they can’t.” Child Protective Services took in children at three of the residences in Ramona where search warrants were served Tuesday through the Drug Endangered Children’s program, Bovet said. Caregivers of those children could face

Junior-senior boys cross country wins at Stampede By JOE NAIMAN

Ramona High School’s cross country teams opened their season at the Vaquero Stampede meet in Lakeside with all four teams placing at least second, and 13 of the runners earning medals for placing in the top 20 in their race. Ramona won the juniorsenior boys division at the Aug. 31 meet while taking second in the junior-senior girls, freshman-sophomore girls, and freshman-sophomore boys races. “Overall it was a successful day for the whole team,” said Head Coach Steve Albanese. Cross country scores

are derived by adding the positions of a team’s first five runners. The juniorsenior boys had 49 points. Orange Glen placed second with 68 points. Isaiah Spieker was third with a time of 11:00 on Lindo Lake Park’s 2.15mile course, Max Edwards placed fourth at 11:06, James Meskell had a ninth-place time of 11:20, and Colin Uekert posted a time of 11:29 to garner 11th place. Matt Meskell narrowly missed a medal, finishing 22nd with a time of 11:46. The junior-senior girls race and the two freshman-sophomore races utilized a 1.65-mile course.

Hilltop won the juniorsenior girls division with 60 points while Ramona’s runners totaled 64 points. Teresa Leon was Ramona’s top runner with an 11thplace finish of 11:29. Rachel Brown finished 14th at 11:34, Elyse Harlan placed 16th with an 11:36 performance, Arianna Ruland completed the course in 11:43 for 19th place, and Holly Trout’s time of 14:04 was worth 48th place. Canyon Crest’s freshman-sophomore girls totaled 35 points while the Ramona team had 72 points. Perla Cruz had a fourth-place time of 11:13 to lead Ramona’s runners.

Marissa Talle was 10th at 11:30, Ciara Lucas had a 14th-place time of 1:43, Chloe Knowd raced for 12:12 and earned 24th place, and Nicole Pshsnychniak took 33rd place at 13:32. The Canyon Crest fresh-

man-sophomore boys won with 48 points while Ramona’s boys accumulated 67 points. The top Bulldog finisher was fifth-place Joey Jauregui, who spent 9:00 racing. Ben Stein was 10th at 9:13, Jackson Sutter’s time of 9:57 gave him

21st place, Chase Hardin ran for 10:02 and finished 23rd, and Colton Meskell had the 27th-place time of 10:10. The Bulldogs travel to Rohr Park in Chula Vista for Friday’s Mustang Invitational meet.

Bulldog spikers click as a unit By JOE NAMAIN Traditionally, Ramona High School’s girls volleyball team has an earlyseason, out-of-town tournament which encourages team bonding, and this weekend’s Watsonville Tournament will serve that

purpose. The ability to play as a team was demonstrated in Ramona’s first scrimmage Aug. 29 at Orange Glen High School. “We’re just producing amazing fluidity already,” said Coach Connie Halfaker.

Box makes college football debut in San Diego By JOE NAIMAN Eric Box, a 2012 Ramona High School graduate and Bulldog football player, made his college football debut Sept. 7 on Western New Mexico University’s team at University of San Diego. Box, an offensive lineman, was on Western New Mexico’s special teams g

That play killed the Pointer’s momentum. Ramona was forced to punt on the next possession and the Pointers had the ball in Bulldog territory with plenty of time on the clock. The Bulldog defense was more determined than tired and forced the Pointers to punt. The Dawgs got the ball on their own 30 and mounted a drive with 5:46 remaining in the game. The Dawgs drove to the Pointer 5 yard line where the Pointers put up a goal line stand and took over with 2:02 left on the clock. “We have a great kicker (Tyler Vargas) and we could have kicked a field goal but that would still have made it a one possession game,” said Baldwin. “I asked Steg

unit. The Mustangs lost to University of San Diego by 38-35. “We fought hard, made a lot of mistakes both sides of the ball, but played a close game,” Box said. Box signed a letter of intent to play college football at WNMU in February 2012, but spent the 2012 season as a non-playing

redshirt. Western New Mexico’s players also include running back Tyler Jackson, a 2010 Ramona High graduate, although Jackson is recovering from anterior cruciate ligament surgery and is redshirting this year. Box expects to play with Jackson in 2014. WNMU is in Division II

of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. USD is in the NCAA’s Football Championship Subdivision. Western New Mexico plays in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. The Mustangs will open their conference season Sept. 21 at Colorado State University-Pueblo.

chance of winning,” said Baldwin. Again the Dawg defense answered the challenge. After three runs, the Pointer quarterback attempted a pass. T-Bone Williams batted down the aerial with 24 clicks left on the clock and the Dawgs took over and ran out the clock. Cherek led the offense with 81 rushing yards on 14 attempts. Gansch rushed for 69 yards on seven carries. The Bulldog defense played a long and gutty game, and gang tackling was their forte. Travis Kerchner was in on 10 tackles and had one sack. Crichlow was in on nine tackles and had three tackles for losses. Tanner Williams had eight tackles and Dominguez had seven. Matt Lawl-

er made one big tackle for a loss in the final period and Sean Stemm made a touchdown saving tackle in the fourth quarter. The Dawgs hit the road to Grossmont at 7 p.m. on Friday, when the defense will have its toughest test of the season. The Foothillers have scored 15 touchdowns, eight passing and seven rushing. They have scored 108 points. The Foothiller quarterback, Anthony Lawrence, has passed for 564 yards and has a quarterback rating of 136. He has yet to toss an interception. Baldwin has a simple solution to stopping Lawrence and the Grossmont offense: “Our offense will have to stay on the field and sustain some long, time-consuming drives.”

phon (Pace, the Bulldog defensive coordinator) if he would rather defend a 95 yard field or give them the ball on the 20 after the kickoff. He said, ‘Go for it!” A key play in the drive was a clutch third down pass from Cobian to Cherek that covered 42 yards and kept the drive alive and gave the Dawgs excellent field possession. Cobian finished the game by completing 10 of 12 passes for 117 yards. Garrett Binkley led all receivers with five grabs for 42 yards. Tanner Williams (3) and Colton Harris (1) also had receptions. “Any time you have a sophomore quarterback completing 80 percent of his passes and hitting key throws like the one to Nathan, you have a great

lake. The first was a 7-5 win over El Camino. Ramona led 1-0 after the first period and 4-0 at halftime. The Wildcats scored the first goal of the second half, although Ramona had a 6-1 lead at the end of the third period and a 7-2 lead before El Camino scored the game’s final three goals.

The Bulldogs’ second Sept. 6 match was against Del Norte, who will be a Valley League opponent this year. Ramona won 10-9 in overtime. The first Sept. 7 contest was against Eastlake. Ramona led 8-6 in the fourth period but Eastlake scored the game’s final three goals,

including the winning shot with nine seconds left for a 9-8 victory. Ramona closed out the tournament with a 15-14 win over Santa Fe Christian. The Bulldogs travel to Valhalla High School for Thursday night’s game. For complete story, see www.ramonasentinel.com.

the quarterfinals,” stated McCormick. “All of the girls played incredibly well including the debut of Jessica Failla at number one singles. She dominated her opponents. “Lauren Dunker and Rebecca Vaca continued their dominance in doubles play by sweeping all three doubles teams. Beating their number three team 6-0 pushed us ahead in the overall game count and was critical in our victory. Jessie Mosser had a clutch win in number three singles to give us a 9-8 lead and ensured a tie in sets. Manda Massey played very tough and wore down the other girls and won three games to help seal the margin of victory. Cassidy Owens and Danielle Vizcarra won two sets by substantial margins and won four games in their only lost set. Caroline Lopresti, Alyssa Virgilio and Megan Douglass all played very tough and their final games ensured the win. This was most certainly a team victory that showed the value of every member of the team. The Lady Bulldogs were supg

ported by a large crowd of family and friends.” Senior co-captain Amanda Massey played number one singles against Clairemont and played number two singles against Carlsbad. Massey is a relative newcomer to the sport of tennis. After injuring her hamstring muscles trying out for the song team, she decided to give tennis a try. “I took lessons from Greg and Katrina Failla and they encouraged me to try out for the team,” she said. “They were a big help in many ways.” Massey tried out last season, made the varsity and earned a letter. She is a 4.36 student and wants to attend Arizona State University or University of Arizona. She wants to study law or medicine. As a captain, she said, “I am there to help my teammates. If a player is having a bad game or practice, I have to encourage her to just hang in there and do her best and give it her all. We are a close knit team and we are always there to help one and other.” From page 29

where we put kids to play, they are clicking as a unit already,” she said. Her varsity players consist of four seniors, two juniors, a sophomore, and three freshmen. The versatility of those players allowed Halfaker to use a smaller varsity roster than normal. “I did not need 12 people. Ten people can get the job done,” she said. “Just about everybody plays in the rotation,” the coach added. “It’s a very complete team.” Former player Jessica Berman takes over as the Bulldogs’ novice coach. Kyle Adelman returns as the junior varsity coach, and all three Adelman brothers — Kyle, Trevor and Garrett — will be the assistant varsity coaches. For full story see www.ramonasentinel.com.
