SB agrees to share cost of parking study Transit Center project a step closer to fruition
■ Local teen attends Young World Summit in Switzerland. Page 4
BY JOE TASH Contributor Planning for a proposed mixed-use development at the Solana Beach Transit Center took another step
forward as the Solana Beach City Council approved paying half the cost of a parking study for the project. The council voted unanimously at its meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 14, to spend up to $33,500, which includes half the cost of the $58,000 study, plus 15 percent for unforeseen contingencies.
property, which is at the intersection of Lomas Santa Fe and West Cedros avenues, Ott said. The North County Transit District owns the 5.7-acre parcel, although it is located within the city of Solana Beach. Coaster and Amtrak trains stop at the station each day on their way back and forth between San Di-
Accurately estimating the amount of parking needed to serve transit riders is seen as critical, because spaces in an underground parking structure cost $30,000 to $35,000 apiece, City Manager David Ott told the council. Underground parking is the only way to fit adequate parking on the long, narrow

Earth Song Books to close in November
Art thriving in Solana Beach
BY DIANE Y. WELCH Contributor Carnivale is coming to the Coastal Rail Trail in Solana Beach and everyone is invited to be a part of this free celebration of the arts. Arts Alive on the Coastal Rail Trail (CRT) will take place on Sunday, Oct. 2, from noon - 4 p.m. The event embraces all aspects of the arts with a focus on involvement by community.
ego and destinations to the north. Ott said work on the parking study was set to begin immediately after the council approved its share of the cost. The city and the transit district signed a “memorandum of understanding” in
for art appreciation for the community,” said Carol Beth Rodriguez, a member of the Public Arts Advisory Commission that has overseen and organized the event with the City of Solana Beach. “There will be something for everyone. People will be able to actually experience the arts with their families.”
BY CLAIRE HARLIN Staff Writer Earth Song Books & Gifts, which has been part of the Del Mar community for more than 40 years, will close its doors in November. “For a long time, we’ve been competing with Amazon and Kindle, and our customers haven’t been supporting us in this economy,” said owner Annette Palmer. “We have to close because the funding just isn’t there. The numbers just don’t add up.” Earth Song opened in 1969, and Palmer, with the help of her family, bought the independent bookstore in 2007, only days before wildfires began to ravish nearby areas. She was 24 when she became owner of the store, located at 1440 Camino Del Mar, which she said she fell in love with at first sight. She found out the store was for sale from a Craiglist ad, advertising a $250,000 price tag. “I was just out of college and owned a bookstore by the beach,” she said. “It was my dream.” Palmer said she has already started writing a book about her experience. The closing comes just after the shuttering of Book Works, an independent bookstore that operated at Flower Hill Promenade for 35 years. Across the country, the diminishing of bookstores has been a trend. “When I heard Book Works was closing I SEE BOOKS, PAGE 6

Deputy Mayor Joe Kellejian honored by American Lung Association Joe Kellejian, deputy mayor of Solana Beach, has been inducted into the American Lung Association in California’s Clean Air Circle in recognition of exemplary leadership in the fight for clean air and healthy lungs in San Diego. This year’s gala event raised $116,000 on behalf of the American Lung Association in California. “We are proud to welcome Deputy Mayor Kellejian to this prestigious group of San Diegans whose efforts have improved the quality of life for more than 300,000 local residents affected by asthma, emphysema, lung cancer and tobacco addiction,” said Jan Cortez, executive director of the American Lung Association in CaliforniaSan Diego. Deputy Mayor Kellejian’s partnership with the American Lung Association in California began in 2003, when the city of Solana Beach became the first mainland city in the U.S. to make its beaches smoke-free. Since then, Kellejian championed smokefree protections for Solana Beach residents and visitors in outdoor restaurant dining patios, building entrances, and events held on city property. He also supported commonsense legislation holding retailers accountable for tobacco sales to kids. Tobacco-free advocates throughout the county have frequently drawn on Kellejian’s political savvy and ability to reach out to decision-makers to enact smoke-free laws. When accepting his Clean Air Circle award, Kellejian dedicated it to the memory of North County resident Candice Porter, who succumbed to lung cancer earlier this year. Porter was a tireless advocate for smoke-free

SB Councilman in Washington when President declares National Health IT Week Solana Beach City Councilman Dave Roberts, who serves as the national co-chair for National Health IT Week 2011, was recently in Washington, D.C., to participate in a Capitol Hill news conference and other events with members of Congress and key industry leaders. On Sept. 12, President Obama signed a Presidential Proclamation declaring Sept. 11 – 17, 2011, as National Health IT Week; the first presidential proclamation in history recognizing the value of using information technology Solana Beach City to improve healthcare. And Councilman Dave Roberts on Sept. 13, the United States Senate unanimously passed a
resolution supporting the goals of National Health IT Week. Roberts, a nationally recognized expert in health policy matters, said “Leaders across the political spectrum are now realizing the value that information technology can bring to transforming our nation’s healthcare system, and I am humbled to serve as one leader of this national effort. Folks have toiled for decades to improve our healthcare system, and it is nice to finally see positive results coming to fruition.”
Santa Fe Irrigation District asks customers to reset their irrigation controllers The Santa Fe Irrigation District is asking its customers to check and, if needed, reset their automatic irrigation systems. Following the county-wide power outage last week, many customers’ automatic sprinkler and irrigation systems may have reverted to their default setting once the power was restored. Most irrigation timers have a battery
that will store watering settings in case of a power outage and download the settings when the power is restored. However, if the battery is old or no battery is installed, your controller could default to a schedule of 10 minutes a day – every day – for every station. This may affect customers’ water bill, and result in water waste, as the irrigation system may be on longer and more See SPRINKLERS, page 6

Local teen learns about global issues from experts at summit in Switzerland BY KAREN BILLING Staff Writer Morgan Hicks spent part of her summer vacation singing “Happy Birthday” to Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu. Her memorable birthday tribute came courtesy of the One Young World Summit in Zurich, Switzerland, where Hicks was one of 1,600 young delegates selected to attend from around the world. Hicks, a senior at the Bishop’s School, was treated to seminars on world issues given by some of the most well-known experts on the topic, such as Tutu, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, activist Bob Geldof, Nobel Peace Prize Winner Muhammad Yunis, Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Doctors Without Border co-founder Bernard Kouchner, and Wael Ghonim, the Google executive who organized protests in Egypt. “It was inspirational,” Hicks said. “I’m in such a bubble here and a lot of these topics I had never experienced. We heard about politics, the environment, capitalism, economics, leadership and how to have relationships with other countries to promote world peace.” Hicks was selected to attend the summit by the International Community Foundation (ICF), a National City organization she has interned for since her fresh-

ICF President and Founder Richard Kiy, also a Carmel Valley resident, thought Hicks would be the perfect ambassador for their organization for all the “amazing” contributions she has made in such a short time. At ICF, Hicks helped launch the Youth International Philanthropy Council, which encourages and inspire youth to take on cross-border giving.
“That blew me away,” Hicks said. “Despite everything that happened he doesn’t want to crawl in a hole and hide, he wanted to make a difference. It was amazing and inspirational.” She took very detailed notes during the presentation by Doug Richards, an entrepreneurship expert. Hicks said Richards spoke about the challenges of the world today and how as young leaders, they are in charge of making it better. Hicks will carry Richards’ words and all the other invaluable messages she received at the summit, as she continues in her efforts at ICF and beyond. While she doesn’t know what college she will attend, she knows she wants to study social entrepreneurship. “Change starts from one person…Don’t be afraid to make a difference,” Hicks advised. Initially she was nervous about working in Mexico but pushing herself outside her comfort zone allowed her to discover that it was a wonderful country and also allowed her to meet the people she was taking an active role in helping. “You learn something if you put yourself out there,” Hicks said. “Your physically being in the experience changes you, rather than just sending a check.”
leads to others to follow in her path,” Kiy said. “I look forward to her inspiring others on how they can make a difference.” In addition to her work with ICF, Hicks also co-founded the “Students Against Destructive Decisions” club at Bishop’s and is a member of the cross country, soccer and track teams. “I’m very busy but I like it that way. I get more things done when I’m busy,” Hicks said. At the One World Summit, Hicks met fellow delegates, ages 18-30, from all over the world. She was one of the youngest there but connected with people from England, Zimbabwe, Brazil, Morocco, Libya and Syria. “It was really interesting and humbling to hear the opinions of the other delegates about the U.S.,” Hicks said “Compared to a lot of countries, we are such a young nation and we have a lot to learn. I think we can learn a lot from different countries and it was interesting to hear their perspective.” Hicks heard presentations on a wide variety topics, from feminism and women’s rights to issues in Africa; learning about the problems the country is facing and steps that can be taken to ensure it doesn’t get worse. She was inspired by a delegate she met from Rwanda who used to be a child soldier.
“There’s a lot of opportunity for kids to take on projects but they feel like they don’t have the vehicle to do so,” Hicks said, noting that her council gives them one. One of her first projects was helping raise $125,000 for a new playground in Mexico for abandoned and neglected children. With the knowledge gained from her experience at ICF, Hicks also wrote “The Teenagers Guide to International Giving,” which will be published in the fall. “I’m proud that we were able to sponsor Morgan and hope it

PARKING continued from page 1
February, agreeing to work together on development of a mixed-use project at the train station, which could include residential units, retail businesses, office space and a parking structure. The agreement marks a renewed effort after a previous plan to develop the property, called Cedros Crossing, generated opposition from nearby residents and city officials. Residents took issue with the size and scale of the proposed project, while city officials questioned its financial viability. The transit district dropped the project in 2008. At Wednesdayâ€™s council meeting, officials praised what they said was a new spirit of cooperation shown by the transit district. The current working relationship is like â€œnight and dayâ€? when compared with the experience of the Cedros

Crossing, said Councilman Mike Nichols, who is serving with Mayor Lesa Heebner on a train station subcommittee. â€œItâ€™s been a completely different experience working with transit district officials this time around,â€? said Ott. Ray Patchett, a consultant to the transit district for the Solana Beach project, agreed. â€œI think itâ€™s an excellent relationship. I donâ€™t think it gets much better than it is today,â€? Patchett said. Joe Foust, of AustinFoust Associates, Inc., has been selected to conduct the parking study. City officials noted that he is very familiar with the train station and surrounding area after working on Cedros Crossing, a re-

view of the Del Mar Fairgrounds Master Plan and the I-5 expansion plan. The parking study will include reviews of previous studies, interviews with transit riders and others at the station, the use of existing security cameras to study parking patterns, and a pilot program to determine how much transit riders are willing to pay for parking, officials said. Ott noted that â€œtime is of the essence,â€? because the city and transit district hope to secure up to $25 million to pay for the underground parking garage through funds administered by Caltrans and the San Diego Association of Governments, which could include money from a transportation sales tax approved by county voters. At the same time as the parking study, officials plan to flesh out details of what would be included in the mixed-use development, Ott said, a process that will include meeting with community members. Staff from the two agencies will identify developers with experience in similar projects, and as soon as the beginning of next year, a request for proposals could be sent out to narrow the field to a single developer for the project, Ott said. Both the Solana Beach council and the transit district board would have to approve the project before construction could begin.

ARTS continued from page 1 There will be a mask creation station for children and adults â€“ with all materials provided â€“ headed up by five founding members of the Solana Beach Arts Association. Children age 10 and under should have an adult with them. And there will be plenty of inspiration along the CRT from which to draw, said Rodriguez. Local artists and students have created over 60 hand-crafted masks that will be on exhibit. Some of the masks may be purchased, while most will be part of a silent auction along with the Arts Alive hand-painted banners that were hung throughout the city earlier this year. Monies raised go directly to support the cityâ€™s public arts programs. Canyon Crest Academy Dance Troupes will perform three separate dance pieces directed by CCA instructor and choreographer Rayna Stohl, who will also perform. The dances will take place on the Rosa Street Bridge and will incorporate the mask theme that is central to the event. Included in the line-up

Palmer said, Earth Song will be holding many sales and events, which will be announced on the storeâ€™s Facebook and Twitter (Twitter. com/earthsongbooks) pages. â€œI invite the community to come in and say goodbye,â€? she said. Del Mar Art & Gifts will officially take over the space on Nov. 15 and open for business on Nov. 19. The shop will offer items such as paintings, sculptures, hand-
made greeting cards, hats, ceramics, candles, lotions and other gifts. â€œIt will be more of an art store than a traditional gallery,â€? said owner Athur Ball, who just signed the lease on the shop this week. â€œWe want to offer items that arenâ€™t a gazillion dollars.â€? Ball, who has previously owned three galleries and two printing companies, said the shop will feature about 25 artistsâ€™ work.
of guest artists is musician Peter Sprague; 2 Guys Will Move You; Patrick Burke; Steam Powered Giraffes; and students from North Coast Repertory Theatre School, each performing live theater; Rodrigo with his recycled artwork; Solana Beachâ€™s Bruun Boys giant sculptures; the Living Statue; Patrick Burke and his steel drums; and back by popular demand, the Dragon Knights Stilt Theatre. The event takes a lot of manpower to organize and stage with many community volunteers involved. Katherine Schmiedeberg, a former commissioner on PAAC, and a Solana Beach resident, has a passion for the arts and is an active volunteer in aiding city arts events. She said that preparations for the 2011 Arts Alive on the Coastal Rail Trail began in January of this year. But with plenty of lead time and willing volunteers, all aspects of the event have come together smoothly, said Schmiedeberg, who did a lot of the behind-the-scenes work to find those volunteers, to design the advertising, and to organize the auction part of the event. â€œI like to see all
the components come together successfully, which they did,â€? she said. Activities will take place close to the Rosa Street bridge, which creates a pedestrian link to South Cedros Avenue, increasing foot traffic there. â€œSo people may walk across the bridge and also enjoy going to the farmersâ€™ market,â€? said Schmiedeberg. It is anticipated that the event will be a huge draw for the city and nearby coastal communities. â€œThis is a unique, exciting event,â€? said Rodriguez. â€œAnd wonderful to experience things that you donâ€™t normally see, all at once.â€? The Public Arts Advisory Commission (PAAC) invites everyone to stop by Solana Beach City Hall to see the masks created and decorated by artists for the â€œ2011 Arts Alive on the Coastal Rail Trailâ€? event. Donated by the artists, the masks will be sold via silent auction during the event.

In April 2006, David’s oldest brother Adam was diagnosed with glioblastoma, and began a two-and-onehalf year commitment to overcoming this often-fatal disease. During Adam’s numerous surgeries, courses of radiation and rounds of chemotherapy at UCLA, David could only offer his brotherly support. Then he decided to raise money. In 2008, David organized a “head shaving” fundraiser at Carmel Valley Middle School. Classmates and faculty joined in – shaved their heads – and together raised over $7,600 for UCLA’s Neuro-Oncology Program, “Art of the Brain.” In 2009, David’s fundraising commitment went beyond the Carmel Valley community, when he created the first annual “Brain Waves: Making Waves for Brain Cancer Research,” swim meet and encouraged swimmers throughout San

Local resident heads Rady’s pediatric GI division BY ARTHUR LIGHTBOURN Contributor Dr. Ariel Feldstein, 38, is the father of four young children, including triplets. He’s also a pediatric physician and scientist recognized for his innovative research and treatment of children with liver diseases and for inventing non-invasive diagnostic procedures to make a child’s clinical experience easier and less painful. And he’s the newly-recruited chief of the Pediatric Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at Rady Children’s Hospital, the largest children’s hospital in California and the largest source of comprehensive children’s medical services, including outpatient clinics, in San Diego. Feldstein took up his new position at Rady’s two months ago after serving seven years on the pediatric staff of the renowned Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, the last three years of which as director of pediatric research. We interviewed him in his office at Rady’s main hospital on Children’s Way. He is definitely a man with a mission. His philosophy of living
Quick Facts Name: Ariel E. Feldstein, M.D. Distinction: As a leading physician/scientist in pediatric hepatology (liver diseases among children), Dr. Feldstein recently joined the staff of Rady’s Children’s Hospital as Chief of the Pediatric Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. He is also a professor of pediatrics at UCSD. Born: Buenos Aires, Argentina, 38 years ago Education: M.D., with honors, University of Buenos Aires, School of Medicine, 1997; Postdoc Fellow, Department of Physiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, 1997-98; residency in pediatrics, Mayo Clinic, 1998-2001; Fellow in pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition, Mayo Clinic, 2001-04. Family: He and his wife, Bettina, (nee Papouchado), met in medical school in Buenos Aires. His wife is a pathologist. They have four children; Lucia, 4, and triplets, Natalie, Emily, and Dylan, 8, students at Sycamore Ridge School. Interests: Running, tennis, reading contemporary and classic novels, and South American literature. Current reading: “Freedom,” a novel by American writer Jonathan Franzen, and re-reading the classic Russian novel, “The Brothers Karamazov,” by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Favorite getaway: Buenos Aires, Argentina Favorite foods: “Being an Argentinean, the barbeque is my weakness. I have to confess that.” Favorite films: Woody Allen films Philosophy: “My philosophy is: ‘Do things you feel passionate about; don’t be afraid of changes; learn from your failures and successes; and surround yourself with people who inspire you and push you to be better.”
and working is simple: “Do things you feel passionate about; don’t be afraid of changes; learn from your failures and successes; and surround yourself with people who inspire you and push you to be better.” Last year, Rady’s gastroenterology division conducted 15,000 outpatient and inpatient visits and performed more than 2,100 procedures. With 19 specialists on staff, the division also operates outpatient clinics at five locations, including the main hospital and Rady’s facilities in Escondido, Encinitas, Oceanside and Murrieta. “My vision,” Feldstein said, “is to continue to strengthen what is being done at Rady’s and in the next several years for it to become one of the Top Five programs in the country.” Rady’s gastroenterology division recently ranked #31 among 177 U.S. children’s hospitals in a recent U.S. News & World Report survey to identify the top children’s hospitals in the country in 10 pediatric specialties. Asked how he intends to accomplish his goal of getting into the “Top Five,” he said: “We have just recruited a director for a new motility center for the testing of children with digestive disorders that we are opening later this fall; and we are in the process of recruiting a new director for the liver transplant program; and we are creating a new inflammatory bowel disease center. “With these three comprehensive centers, our goal is to provide the best possible care for children with these conditions and, at the same time, to innovate and find new treatments and new non-invasive tests to

diagnose and monitor these diseases.” Nationally, the numbers of children suffering from GI-related diseases, including liver diseases, has been growing “exponentially,” over the last two decades, Feldstein said, “and we believe that this in part is related to the obesity epidemic.” The most common liver disease in children, he said, is called the fatty liver disease, directly related to overweight and obesity and associated with insulin resistance and diabetes. Statistics indicate that 10 percent of children in the U.S. have fatty liver disease. “The vast majority of them have a benign condition;” he said. “however, a percentage of them have significant, progressive liver disease, with the increased risk of progressing to cirrhosis of the liver eventually requiring liver transplantation. “Those are the children for whom we are a national referral center here at Rady’s,” he said, “and part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) consortium selected to study this dis-
ease.” Children diagnosed with liver fatty disease are treated with an intense, lifestyle program that includes diet, exercise, and counseling. “There are no medications that have been approved specifically for the treatment of the disease — and that is an area of intense research that we are significantly a part of. We are trying to identify new, safe medications that can be used because we know, unfortunately, that the lifestyle approach only works for a small percentage of children.” Feldstein was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the son of a cardiologist. He remembers, as a child, going to his father’s office and helping out in any way he could. Both he and his older sister followed in their father’s footsteps and became physicians. His sister is a breast pathologist in Ann Arbor, Michigan. “It was in my genes,” he acknowledged, “and there was no doubt that was what I wanted to do.” His grandparents were

TPHS junior takes passion for fashion to next level with new magazine BY KAREN BILLING Contributor Vanessa Pius, a 16-year-old junior fashion maven from Torrey Pines High School, is putting her passion for fashion and publishing on display with her very own magazine HABIT. HABIT’s first issue hit Torrey Pines on Wednesday, Sept. 21, and Vanessa aims to put out five issues a year on campus and to outside subscribers. “We want to branch out of Torrey Pines, too, because it’s too unique and cool a product to keep to ourselves,” Pius said of her hopes to get schools like Canyon Crest Academy and La Jolla High involved. “It’s a professional magazine run in the same way on a much smaller scale as any other publication. As difficult as it is, it’s a wonderful opportunity for me and everyone that gets to work on it.” Vanessa started taking more of an interest in fashion in her freshman year of high school. Her personal style developed by taking inspiration from the trends she saw around her and putting her own spin on them. “It’s about trends but working the trends so that you’re not looking like everyone else. You’re in style but you’re not a carbon copy, you bring your own personality to the trend,” Vanessa said. Her fall must-haves include midilength skirts, muted animal print and the red pant. After joining the staff of the school newspaper, The Falconer, as a freshman, she became absorbed in learning everything there was to know about publishing. She decided to strike out on her own with HABIT last December — a sample issue went out at the end of May and received a good response from her peers. Realizing she couldn’t do all the work on her own, Vanessa set to work building her staff and contributors, even casting for young models. “I held interviews because I have incredibly high standards and I found a couple really cool girls and one cool boy,” Vanessa said. The magazine is heavy on photo spreads because her sample issue received the most reaction from them. “We have really beautiful spreads,” she said, noting one

Vanessa Pius is Halloween-themed with splashes of “very in” leopard print. The September/October issue also includes some pieces on beauty and a feature on luxury movie theaters. Most of the clothing is loaned or donated by local boutiques — La Femme Chic in Solana Beach has been especially supportive. The store donated some fabulous Gucci boots (“We wouldn’t see those in our budget for 20 years,” Vanessa said) and even played host for a HABIT launch party on Sept. 22. While it is challenging managing fellow busy students and making sure all deadlines are met, Vanessa is having a great time, “I absolutely love it; it’s like having two full-time jobs,” Vanessa said, noting that school always comes first, “It’s like having a constant project to do, working on something different every day and it all comes together to create a really beautiful magazine.” Learn more about HABIT on Vanessa’s blog at habitmag.blogspot.com or facebook.com/HABIT-Magazine

TPHS junior helps raise $125K for Henry’s Fund Community encouraged to participate in SeaWorld event
A Place to Gather...
A Main Street for Carmel Valley
For more details, please visit our site: onepaseo.com
BY MEGAN MCVAY Intern Every time Torrey Pines High School junior Harrison Schneider walked down the street to babysit Henry Reif, 9, he knew he could expect several things: nerf gun wars, hide and seek games and animated movies. That much was certain. What Schneider didn’t see coming was the heartwarming relationship that Henry would soon lead him to – and the fundraising crusade that would help Henry battle a life-threatening illness. In March, Henry’s mother, Tracy Spiegel, took him to Rady Children’s Hospital to get his tonsils removed. The procedure went flawlessly and as they left the doctor gave him the standard medical warnings and reminded him to eat a lot of ice cream. But it wasn’t until six days later that Henry began to cough up excessive amounts of blood. He was rushed to the Emergency Room, and was immediately taken into surgery to stop the bleeding. After the surgery, he was brought to Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Rady Children’s Hospital, where care is provided by the Hematology/Oncology Division of Rady Children’s Specialists of San Diego. He spent the night at the hospital, undergoing several blood tests. Within three weeks, Henry was diagnosed with type B hemophilia. Lacking the ninth blood-clotting factor, hemophilia hinders Henry’s body’s ability to clot blood properly, making every injury a life-threatening emergency in which he must be rushed to the hospital to be monitored for internal bleeding. Because only 3,300 people have type B hemophilia in America, the factor medicine is not supplied at most hospitals and Henry’s mom, Tracy Spiegel, must keep at least three doses on hand, each costing $5,000. “Even when I’m not babysitting Henry, we still hang out all the time. Our families are closely intertwined. Our fathers work together and our mothers workout together,”
Harrison Schneider with Henry Reif said Harrison. “Since his diagnosis, we have still been able to pass the football around and go swimming. But it’s sad to know he won’t be able to play flag football or lacrosse like he planned on doing before.” By April, Spiegel had begun crafting the basis of what would soon become “Henry’s Fund,” a Miracle Maker Fund affiliated with Rady Children’s Hospital and dedicated to finding a cure to the disorder and aiding families who cannot afford the factor medication. In need of a partner, Spiegel approached neighbor, babysitter and trusted family friend, Harrison, and asked him if he would like to get involved with the foundation. Without hesitation, Harrison accepted. “Since it’s not as prevalent of a disorder as others, it’s the job of the family and friends of the person to come together and do something, instead of waiting for some corporate company to step in,” Harrison said. This summer, when Harrison wasn’t at crew practice or SAT training, he was going door-to-door in his neighborhood, The Bridges in Rancho Santa Fe, asking for donations. He also worked with Spiegel to develop a tagline, logo and fundraising plan. Henry, who Harrison describes as mature beyond his years, has also played a key role in the fund and its success. During a community meeting at the Children’s School in La Jolla, Henry got up in front of his entire school, explained his condition and asked students to join his cause. Additionally, he came up with the idea of donating video games carts and specially-designed Wii programs to the Peckham Center at Rady Children’s Hospital. Although Henry’s Fund
only officially began in June, they have already raised $125,000. The boundless support they have received from family and friends has confirmed their tag line: “Caring is in our blood.” Together, Henry and Harrison are currently working on their biggest fundraiser yet: The Shamu and You Family Walk at SeaWorld for Rady Children’s Hospital on Oct. 1. Recently, Henry and Harrison have been recruiting friends to walk in the event and asking neighbors to sponsor them. So far, Henry’s Fund has raised $10,587 solely for the event. The 68-member team has its own name too: Henry’s Hemophiliacs. Eventually, Spiegel and Harrison would like to be able to hire a fellow — a medical doctor who will be sponsored to study hemophilia. Henry’s Fund is vacillating between two subjects of potential study. The fellow’s research will either be focused on performing stem cell therapy to find a cure or making the doses of factor more affordable by finding a way to make injections last for five days, rather than only one. Although this goal still awaits in the future, Harrison and Henry are keeping busy with the many current plans they have together. “One thing we will be doing is speaking together at the Rady Children’s Hospital gala fundraiser. We will be speaking about all the fun times we’ve had together and also what Henry has gone through. I know it will be a good experience and hopefully it will bring in some donations,” Harrison said. To donate, find out more or participate in the Shamu and You Family Walk, email Harrison at Harrisonschneider27@gmail. com.

Fitness trainer hikes Mount Kilimanjaro for a cause BY KIRBY BROOKS Contributor As the owner of Sharpe Fitness and CrossFit La Jolla, Brandie Sharpe stays in shape. And it’s a good thing, too, as the native Californian recently joined a 5-person benefit hike up Mount Kilimanjaro (19,340 feet) to raise funds for a much-needed ambulance for the Maasia people of Africa. “CrossFit makes you good at everything,” she laughed. “For our training, we started walking long distances and trying to adjust to the altitude.” Prior to Kilimanjaro, Sharpe said she hadn’t done any major hiking. “We did a lot of the local hikes, traveling to Breckinridge and tackling Yosemite’s El Capitan, but that was a walk in the park compared to Kilimanjaro,” she said. Still, Sharpe’s hike atop the dormant Tanzanian volcano wasn’t just a test of physical strength and endurance, it was for a cause: Sustainable Healthcare Assistance in Rural Environments. People made donations to

Working with Dr. Kulidjian and the Maasai Wilderness Conservation, Sharpe and her fellow hikers spent two weeks in Africa. The group took the slowest and safest route up the mountain, “but even that has just a 40-percent success rate,” Sharpe said with a smile.

Brandie Sharpe and crew on Mount Kilimanjaro. send the hikers there. Sharpe explained the background: In 2010, Dr. Anna Kulidjian (an orthopedic surgeon at UCSD) and her husband visited a Maasai community at Campi Ya Kanzi in a remote area of Southern Kenya (at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro). The couple brought medical supplies donated by the group at UCSD and Dr. Kulidijian volunteered at the clinic, helping set up its trauma care. The village physician was away (one doctor supports some 7,000
villagers) so she and “supernurse Vivian” manned the clinic on their own. Dr. Kulidjian reported more than 40 patients lined up outside the two-room clinic each morning! Most had walked miles to get there. An estimated 350,000 Maasai live in Kenya in rural and remote communities. They suffer from HIV, typhoid, malaria and TB. Though traumatic injuries and malnutrition are common in their children, most Maasai do not receive medi-
The coffee brought to their tents at 6 a.m. each morning woke the hikers, and after their stats (oxygen and heart rate) were checked, they began walking around 7-7:30 a.m. Sharpe said they would hike for six hours and stop for the day, or hike for four hours, stop for lunch, and then hike three more. Everyone in Sharpe’s group completed the hike, a triumph in itself, and one hiker managed to run Mount Kilimanjaro — making it from the bottom to the top in just 7.5 hours. After the 8-day trek, Sharpe and her fellow hikers embarked upon a three-day safari. They returned home on Aug. 20. “Then I spent nearly two weeks recovering from my life-changing journey,” Sharpe sighed.

UCSD builds knowledge exchange corridors to connect to community BY WILL BOWEN CONTRIBUTOR UCSD sits perched high atop a lofty hill overlooking the town of La Jolla. But has UCSD become an ivory tower, aloof and detached from the communities below it with very little in the way of structures that allow for the free flow of information, knowledge, and creative intelligence from the community to the university and back? Professor Teddy Cruz of the UCSD Visual Arts Department and Professor Michael Cole of Communications both think so and they are trying to do something about it. They’ve put together a pilot project called “Knowledge Exchange Corridors: The UCSD Community Stations Initiative.” The aim of the program is to revitalize the university’s commitment to community service through the installation of pipelines for information flow between the campus and surrounding communities. At the Calit2 facility on campus on Aug. 19, Cruz and Cole gave a presentation about their work and opened an art show at the Calit2 Art Gallery that highlights the features of their program. Students and teachers from the associated Summer Workshop series were also present to share their projects. In the Calit2 Art Gallery there were large colorful maps and visualizations of the people and organizations involved in the proj-

An “OptlPortable” (a large display screen for real-time video and audio Internet interaction between sites on and off campus) was also on view. Through the project, UCSD will have a presence and be involved in some underserved, economically disadvantaged areas of San Diego. At these intervention sites or stations, dialogue and a two-way sharing of information will hopefully occur. There will be a partnership of organizations on campus with others off campus. • The UCSD Center for Community Well-Being, headed by Michael Cole, will partner with San Diego Work Force Partnership’s South Metro Center in Southeast San Diego to further community health, education, and job training. • Teddy Cruz will head up the on-campus Center of Urban Ecologies, which is paired up with Casa Familiar in San Ysidro, to focus on arts, culture, housing and urban development. Calt2 will be involved as a resource for the technology needed. • Srinivas Sukumar, a researcher at Calit2 who helped found the Center for Community Well-Being, promised that, “Calit2 will provide the very latest technology to bring to bear on the community issues confronted by the organizations.” • Deborah Forster, a cognitive scientist affiliated with the Center of Urban Ecology, who teaches at both the Woodbury School of Architecture at the New School of Architecture in San Diego, said she would bring engineering students into the communities.

Fundraiser to benefit ‘Wine To Water’ organization Group helps get sustainable water systems to those in need BY DIANE Y. WELCH Contributor Water is a basic necessity in life, yet, according to the Wine To Water organization, nearly one billion people in the world today lack access to adequate water, 2.5 billion people lack access to improved sanitation, and waterborne illnesses kill more people than HIV/AIDS and malaria combined. This stunning fact motivated Doc Hendley – a “Top Ten CNN Hero” in 2009 and founder and president of the organization — into action.“We are devoted to fighting this epidemic,” he affirmed. On Saturday, Oct. 15, BRAVA Creative will host a free wine-tasting and catered fundraiser at Coast Photography on South Cedros Ave. in Solana Beach to benefit Wine To Water, a non-profit aid organization that provides sustainable water systems to needy people around the world. Hendley will be at the
event to tell his story and explain to those present how charitable donations fund water treatment projects in developing countries like Sudan, India, Cambodia, Uganda, Ethiopia, Haiti and elsewhere. Making guest appearances are Lt. Col. Jay Kopelman (Ret. U.S. Marine Corps), author of “From Baghdad, With Love: A Marine, the War, and a Dog Named Lava”and a former NBC military analyst; Chef Jeff, caterer and personal chef and founder at Taste Culinary; and Downtown Rob, ambassador of Downtown San Diego, who will serve as guest bartender for the evening. A former bartender in Raleigh, NC, Hendley recalled how the name of the organization and the concept came to him before he even knew about clean water issues. In December 2003, while he visited his parents in their North Carolina mountain retreat, a persistent phrase, “wine to water,” kept going over and over in his mind. And as the phrase was backward from the title of the familiar Biblical story where water was

turned into wine, it caught his imagination. While thinking more in-depth about that phrase, Hendley considered if there were any issues with water and researched it online. “I was completely shocked to find out that more children die from unclean water than anything else in the world. I was more shocked that I had never heard about it and neither had any of my friends.” The movement was thus born. In 2008, the economic downturn coincided with Hendley’s 1-year-old child suffering serious health issues. The organization struggled to survive. Then in February 2009, Hendley was sur-
prised to get a call from CNN when he found out that he had been nominated for recognition as a CNN hero, one of over 9,000 nominees from 120 countries. A bartending colleague had put forward the nomination when she witnessed Hendley leave everything behind in the USA and move to Darfur, putting himself in harm’s way to start the organization in early 2004. A celebrity panel of judges chose Hendley as one of the Top Ten CNN Heroes from a short list of 30 finalists. “It was such a relief and brought the organization to another level,” said Hendley. “From there a storm of good things happened,” he added. When he secured a book deal to write his story, which
will be released by Penguin Books on Jan. 5, 2012, the advance helped Hendley pay off some of the debt incurred through his child’s illness. And the award gave greater visibility to his organization. The free Wine To Water event will include opportunity drawings with items donated from Microsoft Corp, a portrait session and fine art print from award-winning photographer Kevin M. Connors, plus the chance to spend a day with a Navy SEAL, and more. It is anticipated that around 200 people will attend the wine-tasting event. It is hoped that $10,000 will be raised through individual donations and purchase of raffle tickets which cost $10
each or $40 for five for prize drawings. “Wine symbolizes fortune in our society,” said Hendley. “Our goal is to give the fortunate population an opportunity to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.” The event is on Saturday, Oct. 15, from 6 p.m.-10 p.m., and will take place at Coast Highway Photography, 415 S. Cedros Avenue, Solana Beach. This is a free event but tax deductible donations are welcome.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS Certified family law specialist/CPA provides unique service High Bluff Academy offers smaller class sizes and individualized instruction
BY KELLEY CARLSON CONTRIBUTOR A person going through a divorce may find that having attorney Nancy J. Bickford on his or her side can be an asset. Bickford is the only certified Nancy Bickford family law special- Photo ist in San Diego by Lauren Radack County who also has an active CPA (certified public accountant) license. “What that means is that I am familiar with financial statements, I am familiar with such concepts as business appraisals, tracing and income from businesses, so that I can conduct and understand discovery and tracing of financial and business issues in a divorce more readily than most other family law attorneys,” she said. “I love helping my clients understand and solve complex financial matters and unwind complicated tracing issues that many, if not most, other divorce attorneys may not understand or enjoy.” The Law Offices of Nancy J. Bickford exclusively practices family law, providing assistance in areas such as custody, spousal and child support, and
property division. Established in Carmel Valley in 2002, the firm serves all of San Diego County. Bickford didn’t initially set out to be a lawyer. Growing up in Ohio, she earned a bachelor of science degree with a dual major in systems analysis and mathematics from the state’s Miami University. She went on to receive an MBA in accounting from San Francisco’s Golden Gate University, graduating in 1976. After college, Bickford worked for Arthur Andersen & Co., where she audited businesses and financial institutions. Shortly later, she married and became controller for a firm operating hotel and real estate investments. During her career as controller, Bickford and her family moved to Scripps Ranch in 1985. “San Diego is a wonderful city,” she said. “It’s a great place to raise children.” In 1992, Bickford went off on her own. Realizing the need to support three children, she decided to pursue a career in law. “I knew I would have to go to work every day and work hard,” Bickford said. “The career of law is a very jealous mistress; it can be all-consuming. If you don’t love it, it can be very tedious. But it’s something I love to do. ... Helping people makes it all worthwhile.” Bickford attended the California Western School of Law in San Diego, and received her juris doctorate degree in
April 1996. She worked for a couple of San Diego-area law firms until 2002, when she opened her own practice in Carmel Valley. The attorney found many qualities that attracted her to the area — the lifestyle, schools, and proximity to dining, friends and the beach, among others. “It was my absolute positive dream (to live and work there),” Bickford said. These days, Bickford works with two associates in her office: Jeffrey B. Miller, a fellow California Western School of Law grad who joined the firm in 2005; and Bethany M. Ward, a graduate of the University of San Diego School of Law who came aboard in 2007. The team highly encourages its clients to resolve issues through mediation. Bickford said litigation is a last resort, “but we have the financial and business sophistication to get the results you deserve should you need to resort to litigation in your divorce.” At least 90 percent of the firm’s cases are settled out of court through mediation and negotiation, Bickford added. The Law Offices of Nancy Bickford is in the Del Mar Technology Center, at 12348 High Bluff Drive, Suite 220, in Carmel Valley. General office hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. For additional information, call (858) 793-8884 or go to www.bickfordlaw.com.
Carmel Valley now has another option for high school students who prefer smaller class sizes and individualized instruction. High Bluff Academy has recently been accredited as a full-time comprehensive school for students in grades 8-12. Classes are limited to 10 students and most classes have fewer than this. Parents can also opt to have their child take classes one-on-one. The school’s mission is to provide a high quality college prep program with an emphasis on health and fitness. For this purpose, the academy has formed a partnership with the Pacific Athletic Club. All students will be able to benefit from fitness instruction at the club as part of the physical education program. High Bluff Academy, located on High Bluff Drive, was founded in 2002 as a learning center for tutoring, test prep and college counseling. In 2005, it began offering courses for high school credit for students enrolled at Torrey Pines, Canyon Crest Academy and other schools in the area. More than 500 students a year attend courses and tutoring at High Bluff Academy. Many of these students have been accepted to prestigious colleges including UC Berkeley, UCLA, Stanford, Yale, Harvard, and other Ivy League schools. Struggling students, who had been discouraged from seeking a college education, have received help from High Bluff Academy and are now doing well in their chosen universities.

BY DEBBIE SANDLER Contributor What’s going on with light bulbs? I am asked repeatedly about incandescent light bulbs; are they recyclable? Have they really been banned? As this misunderstood ban approaches, there is a lot of what I would call “light bulb confusion” (bordering on light bulb “anxiety”) out there so let me take this opportunity to explain a few things, including the proper disposal of various kinds of bulbs. First of all, there is NO recycling for incandescent light bulbs. They must be disposed of along with your other trash. Incandescent light bulbs are regular electric bulbs. They use an electric current to heat a filament enclosed in glass which emits light and heat as it burns. This type of bulb should not be confused with the compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) which works by passing electricity through mercury vapor or the LED bulb which uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as the source of light. Compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) must be recycled but only as hazardous waste because of the small amount of mercury in the inner tubing. LED light bulbs contain no toxic elements and CAN be disposed of in your normal trash. They are the most energy-efficient light bulbs on the market today and can save you a lot of money over the course of their lifetimes. In fact, they last several years so you don’t even need to worry about their disposal very often at all. What’s all the uproar about legislation affecting the manufacture of incandescent bulbs? Late in his second term, George W. Bush signed into law the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, originally known as the Clean Energy Act of 2007. The bill, signed into law in December 2007, was an 822-page document changing U.S. energy policy in many areas. Revised standards for appliances and lighting included the requirement that there be roughly 25 percent greater efficiency for light bulbs. This effectively would ban the sale of most current incandescent light bulbs starting in 2012 with rolling deadlines through 2014. The law actually does not ban
the use or manufacture of incandescents, nor does it mandate the use of CFLs. It simply requires that companies make their incandescent bulbs work a bit better. There is actually an incandescent substitute for the now prohibited 100-watt bulb and that is the 95-watt equivalent. While most Americans won’t find these on their shelves quite yet, shipments have already been made to California which has bulb legislation that kicked in a year earlier (January 2011) than the 2012 federal regulation requirements. I have personally purchased these 95-watt bulbs and they work perfectly well. What consumers need to understand is that “lumens” is the number that measures a bulb’s (lamp’s) light output or intensity and the energy used to create light is measured in “watts”. The standard 100-watt light bulb of days gone by had a light output of 1,710 lumens. The updated 95-watt version puts out 1,490 lumens and the difference in light output is NOT even noticeable! The only thing that has really changed is the energy required to heat the internal filament. Although I prefer incandescents, I have also used CFLs and now must arrange for their proper hazardous waste disposal. You may call Household Hazardous Waste at: 1-800-714-1195 to arrange for hazardous waste pickups of any kind (including compact fluorescent bulbs). The most popular alternative to the incandescent bulbs is the compact fluorescent light bulb. CFLs radiate a light spectrum that is different from that of incandescent lamps. Enhanced formulations have improved the perceived color of the light emitted by CFLs, such that some sources rate the best “soft white” CFLs as similar in color to standard incandescent lamps. Compared to incandescent bulbs emitting the same amount of visible light, CFLs use less power (typically one fifth) and have a longer rated life (six to ten times average). A common question arises about CFLs regarding dimmer switches. To use a compact fluorescent bulb on a dimmer switch, you must buy a bulb that’s specifically made to work with dimmers (check the package). It is not recommended that regular compact fluorescent bulbs be used with dimming switches, since this can shorten bulb life. (Using a regular compact fluorescent bulb with a dimmer will also nullify the bulb’s warranty.) CFLs have a higher purchase price than incandescents, but can save over five times its purchase price in electricity costs over the bulb’s lifetime. Like all fluorescent lamps, CFLs contain mercury, which complicates
‘Light bulb confusion’ over the misunderstood ban on incandescents.
their disposal. Note that if you break a CFL bulb then you should handle its disposal carefully to make sure that you aren’t exposed to the mercury inside. Open all of the windows and leave the room for at least twenty minutes. Come back into the room with a wet rag and wearing disposable gloves and clean up the entire area. Put the bulb, the rag and the gloves into a plastic bag. Put this bag in a second plastic bag and seal both bags. Dispose of this in whatever manner your area requires for disposal of hazardous materials. An LED light bulb is a solid-state lamp. The term “solid state” refers commonly to light emitted by solid-state electroluminescence, as opposed to incandescent bulbs (which use thermal radiation) or fluorescent bulbs which pass electricity through mercury vapor. Compared to incandescent lighting, LEDs create visible light with reduced heat generation. Since the light output of individual light-emitting diodes is small compared to incandescent and compact fluorescent lamps, multiple diodes are often used together. Most LED bulbs are not designed to be dimmed (although some models are designed to work with dimmers), and are usually directional. Directional lighting simply means lighting that travels in a specific direction (such as spotlights) versus general lighting which provides even, overall illumination. While these lamps have declined in cost in the last year, they still bear a pretty hefty price tag. They are more powerefficient than compact fluorescent bulbs and offer life spans of 30,000 or more hours, compared with incandescent bulbs’ typical life of 1,000 hours and compact fluorescents running about 8,000 hours. (One year is about 8,700 hours.) Confused yet? This isn’t “socket science” folks, but there are a few terms you should know before buying any energy saving bulb. A great resource for any light bulb questions you might have is lightbulboptions. org. And, of course, you can email me with any questions you may have at sbbaglady@ gmail.com. Thanks for your interest!
BY TIM BINDER “A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re talking real money” is credited to the late Senator and Minority Leader Everett Dirksen who was expressing his frustration, even then, of the ever-increasing national debt as it approached $328 billion in 1965. Of course the national debt today is more than 45 times greater than it was in 1965, vastly exceeding the rate of inflation, which is about seven times that of 1965. Most of us cannot comprehend how much a billion dollars, much less a trillion dollars, really is, so it may help to put our national budget and our national debt in a perspective that we can understand. We start with the U. S. tax revenues of $2.170 trillion, the federal budget of $3.820 trillion, new debt this year of $1.650 trillion, the current national debt of $14.271 trillion, and recent budget cuts of $38.500 billion. If we eliminate eight zeros, we have a family income of $21,700, money the family spent of $38,200, new debt added to the credit card of $16,500, total credit card debt of $142,710, and budget cuts of $385! The median household income for San Diego County is about $65,000, or three times the $21,700 above. If the median household spent like the federal government, the household would spend $114,600 per year, financing $49,500 of that amount on their credit card, and increasing their total credit card debt to more than $428,000, while trying to reduce their spending by $1,155. To illustrate his point, Senator Dirkson told the story of the city workers who dug a big hole in the street. When they replaced the dirt, there was a large pile of dirt left over that they did not know what to do with. So they thought and thought, then one of them said: “I know what to do. We’ll just dig the hole deeper!” Of course, the city workers could not solve their dirt problem by digging the hole deeper any more than Congress or the President can solve our fiscal problem by digging the fiscal hole deeper. That’s something we can all understand. Tim Binder is an attorney. He was formerly Vice Chairman of the Board and General Counsel for the Hotel Del Coronado.
Kudos to 101 improvements The writer of the letter to the editor titled “Highway 101 heading for disaster,” published Sept. 15, has missed the point of Solana Beach 101 plans completely. First, these are not “personal” pet programs of a few, rather the desires of many who live in Solana Beach and who supported this legislation. Long lines of traffic from “pop out curbs and mid-block crossings” is not going to happen when non-local commuters find how much faster it will be to stop at and use the Coaster from stations in Carlsbad, Encinitas and Solana Beach. And the shuttle services from Sorrento Valley support all the businesses there, as well as all of Torrey Pines. Right now using I-5 south is faster than using 101 through Solana Beach and Del Mar. And if commuters would take advantage of the Diamond Lanes they would cut their commute times even more. And the Lomas Sante Fe interchange works just fine now, thank you, considering how many extra commuters leave 101 to take Via de la Valle to I-5 to avoid the stop lights on 101 in Del Mar. As a bike rider, the 101 improvements in Solana Beach will increase safety, decrease our bike time through town while improving the overall look and feel of our “Beautiful Solana Beach.” Rick Fay Solana Beach

It was a time of transition from military dictatorships to democracy, he said, and as such, was, politically and economically, a chaotic time, “as is typical in Argentina, but it was a time of freedom, which was unique.” By 1983, when Feldstein was 11, he said, Argentina had passed through its period of military rule, and had become a democracy. He earned his M.D. from the University of Buenos Aires, School of Medicine, with honors, in 1997. At the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, he did a postdoctoral fellowship in liver pathobiology, a
residency in pediatrics and a fellowship in pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition, completed in 2004. He subsequently joined the Cleveland Clinic where he developed a pediatric preventative metabolic clinic with a multi-disciplinary team of doctors and healthcare professionals who provided a comprehensive approach to preventing the onset/progression of metabolic complications of obesity in children. In 2008, he was appointed director of pediatric research at the Cleveland Clinic and served as such until joining Rady’s.

Transformation of UTC mall set to start A luxury 14-screen theater and an expanded 24-Hour Fitness club will be among the first arrivals at the remodeled Westfield UTC shopping center, company officials said recently. Construction will start soon on the “total transformation,” with ArcLight Cinemas taking the upper levels of the old Robinsons-May building and 24 Hour’s Super Sport Club the lower levels. The first phase, set to be finished by the 2012 holiday shopping season, will also include a remodeled dining plaza adjacent to the ice rink — separated so it won’t be cold and humid any more — and new dining options, including a Tender Greens organic restaurant. Also planned is an entirely new look, with new store facades, a new children’s play area and family lounge, and a renovated “Palm Plaza” in the area outside the current food court.

Torrey Pines Pop Warner Falcons (D2) regain winning ways BY BILL BUTLER Following last week’s 2424 tie with the Murrieta Hawks, the Torrey Pines Falcons are again in the winner’s circle after a 35-0 victory over the Carlsbad Golden Lancers. The Falcons were represented at mid- Open field tackle by Garth Erdossy. Photo: Colleen Morgans field for the ColleenMorgansPhotography.com coin toss by Conner Whitton, Andre Norden, Tyler Alexander, and Zac Friedland. Torrey Pines won the toss and elected to defer their choice until the second half. After Mac Bingham’s kickoff was covered by Alexander, Garth Erdossy, Kevin Misak, and Beau Morgns at the 31-yard line, the Falcons held the Golden Lancers short of a first down on the initial possession and regained the ball at the Carlsbad 33-yard line. Tanner Watkins, Jackie Plashkes, and Zac Friedland had key defensive plays to hold Carlsbad short. On the second play of the possession, Zac Friedland took the ball over the right side of the line and then cut back to the left and 33 yards into the end zone. The PAT kick was just a bit wide and the Falcons were up 6-0. On the Golden Lancers’ next possession, three runs for no gain were followed by a pass on fourth down. The pass was a bit overthrown and settled into the waiting arms of Zac Friedland, who took the ball from the 44-yard line down the right sideline for touchdown number two. The PAT kick was blocked, and the Falcons led 12-0. The Torrey Pines defenders, Watkins, Plashkes, Morgans, Nick Zimmer, and Seth Friedman held the Golden Lancers to no gain in three efforts, and this time Carlsbad chose to punt. Friedland returned the punt 27 yards to the Lancer 29-yard line. Following a loss of 7 yards, Plashkes took the handoff over right guard, sidestepped a defender at the 25, and carried into the right corner of the end zone for another Falcon touchdown. Ryan Wells was perfect on the kick, and Torrey Pines led 20-0. On the next Falcon possession, with the ball resting on the 42-yard line, Conner Whitton wasted no time in getting the offense on track again. With three receivers running pass routes, Whitton hit the deep receiver, Alexander, in stride, and he raced untouched into the end zone. A PAT kick later by Wells, and the score was 28-0. The remainder of the game was played with a running clock. The Falcons would score once again to win 35-0. The Golden Lancers mounted a late drive that carried to the Falcon 18-yard line, but which ended at that point.

The Eagles stretched their lead to 16-0 on David VanViet’s 41-yard field goal in the third quarter.

A team of 10 youth golfers representing San Diego captured third place recently at the first-ever Junior League Golf World Series at TPC Sugarloaf outside Atlanta, beating their counterparts from Tampa, Fla., to close the inaugural two-day national championship on a winning note.

San Diego dropped close matches on Saturday to Atlanta, which won the Junior League Golf World Series, and to Dallas, which finished second, before beating Tampa in its final matchup.

Energetic director discusses ‘Odyssey’ In celebration of The Old Globe Theatre’s 75th anniversary, director Lear deBessonet and writer Todd Almond will premiere a musical theater event, “Odyssey.” The work reimagines Homer’s epic poem from deBessonet’s conversations with San Diegans at large. Commissioned by The Globe, “Odyssey” has a three-day run Sept. 30-Oct. 2 in the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre. DeBessonet is an energetic artist who is no stranger to creating big events. Her resume includes “The Scarlet Lear deBessonet Letter,” “My Fair Lady,” “Don Quixote,” a community-based collaboration with a homeless shelter in Philadelphia that was named in “Best Shows of 2009” by Philadelphia Weekly, and more. She was eager to talk about “Odyssey.”
Q. “Odyssey” is part of the Globe’s Southeastern San Diego Residency Project. How did it originate? A: I had a commission to create a piece for The Globe so several years ago I came to San Diego to meet as many different San Diegans as possible. Then Todd and I started working on the idea. He wrote the music and lyrics, and we imagined this ideal version of “what ifs” – we had the Valhalla High School Percussion Ensemble or 30 children from San Diego Jr. Theatre come running out from the floor, or Culture Shock San Diego to perform, St. Stephen’s Church Choir to sing and be the voice of Athena, or the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory to score a dream ballet of Odysseus’ homecoming? At one point Todd and I looked at each other like, really? Every outlandish thing we thought of we got, and we’re so happy the groups said yes. Q. The cast features 200 people. How do you pull that off? A: This is the largest cast I’ve ever worked with, but once it’s above 50 people it’s the same whether 60 or 300. You have to

Jenna Druck Center’s got ‘Girl Power’
CV man’s quest to help others deal with grief takes him to ‘Ground Zero’ event BY JOE TASH Contributor For the past 15 years, Ken Druck has helped grieving families move on with their lives. On Sunday, Sept. 11, he stood at a spot where the entire country’s grief was focused — the memorial park at “Ground Zero,” where New York City’s World Trade Center towers once touched the sky. Druck and his girlfriend, Lisette Omoss, traveled to New York to meet with families of people who died in the Sept. 11 attacks, and Druck also delivered a talk on promoting resiliency at a “Day of Remembrance” event organized by the nonprofit group Voices of September 11. Keynote speakers at the event also included Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Druck, a Carmel Valley resident and founder of the Jenna Druck Center, also attended the ceremony on Sept. 11 marking the 10th anniversary of the attacks and the unveiling of the memorial park, which includes pools where the towers once stood, and low walls engraved with the victims’ names.

A look at 13 artists working in Los Angeles in the 1960s and ‘70s, whose perceptual investigations and use of light and innovative materials helped define an era of art making in California, opens Sept. 25 at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Organized by curator Robin Clark with museum director Hugh M. Davies, who are calling it “our most ambitious exhibition to date,” “Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface” will be on view through Jan. 22 at MCASD’s two locations in La Jolla and downtown San Diego. “Phenomenal” features the art of Peter Alexander, Larry Bell, Ron Cooper, Mary Corse, Robert Irwin, Craig Kauffman, John McCracken, Bruce Nauman, Eric Orr, Helen Pashgian, James Turrell, De Wain Valentine and Doug Wheeler. “We have a long history with all of these artists¬, perhaps longer than any other contemporary art institution in Southern California,” Davies said. “We

Admission: $5-$10 Website: mcasd.org Pacific Standard Time events: pacificstandardtime.org have shown the artists since they emerged in the ’60s and ’70s, and are immensely gratified to be presenting them again as part of the largest exhibition in our history.” Combining key works from the museum’s collection with major loans from prominent public and private collections, the exhibition includes immersive light installations together
with rare, ephemeral, and site-conditioned works, some seen in California for the first time in decades, according to curators. “Phenomenal” will be accompanied by an illustrated catalog co-published by MCASD and University of California Press. “Due to the generosity of the participating artists and their estates, each of whom have opened their studios and archives to this project, the book is the most comprehensive publication in MCASD’s history, and something we hope will be valuable to researchers and general audiences for years to come,” said curator Clark. “Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface” is part of an initiative called “Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980,” a collaboration of more than 60 cultural institutions across Southern California, which collectively tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene. Initiated through grants from the Getty Foundation. PST will take place for six months beginning in

How â€˜Merlotâ€™ can you go? La Jollaâ€™s Art & Wine Festival will show Lillis has a background in musical theater and puts on his art events like they were a Broadway show. â€œItâ€™s just like producing a show for the stage,â€? he laughed. â€œThe artists are the cast for the festival, much like the actors are for the theater. The sets are the booths and tents, and the focus is on entertainment. â€œAnd we are also going to make this festival look very good. We are bringing in all the artistsâ€™ tents, so everything will be uniformly attractive. We will have set the tents up like a promenade; itâ€™s going to be like strolling up the Champs-Ă‰lysĂŠes in Paris.â€?
The 2010 La Jolla Art and Wine Festival festival will go to La Jolla, Bird Rock, and Torrey Pines Elementary Schools â€” to support the art, music, and science programs on the budget-chopping block. Lillis is optimistic about the future of LJAWF, too. â€œSausalito and La Jolla have a lot in common. Both are situated on the
water in a beautiful setting. There are many artminded people here, as in Sausalito, and I think we can build this festival into a Top 10 event,â€? he said. Lillis explained that he upped the quality of the art at LJAWF and brought in a nationally recognized panel of jurors who selected a very high level of works â€œto attract
greater interest.â€? â€œI promise that you are going to see some very unique things â€” things you never expected to see. We were able to get topnotch artists to attend because they know they can sell well at my events. In Sausalito, some of the sculptors were making upward of $100,000 in the three-day event.â€?

Burlap’s dining room includes decor from around the world.
Mussels with sake, radish and bread
Burlap offers ‘the whole package’ to diners seeking new sensations BY KELLEY CARLSON ne of North County’s newest restaurants, Burlap, appears to be cut from a different cloth. Opened in July by celebrity chef Brian Malarkey and James Brennan — who also collaborated on Searsucker in downtown San Diego — the social dining establishment carries an “Asian Cowboy” motif. “Worldly, rugged, adventurous … that’s what I wanted to convey,” Malarkey said. Thomas Schoos designed the 9,000-squarefoot space (formerly the home of Wherehouse Music in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center) with items from China, Thailand, South Africa, India, The Philippines, Japan and Brazil. There are water buffalo skulls, Pakistani rugs, 200-yearold metal dragons, taxidermic specimens, a saddle, and oriental-patterned and animal-print cushions found throughout the restaurant; the establishment’s namesake “burlap” fabric is paneled on some of the interior walls. Authentic Chinese “Lion Dance” masks hang over the indoor bar, while the outdoor counterpart is inlaid with a dark brown, handcarved, 19th century Indonesian wall. Outside, patrons can lounge in chairs around a fire pit or dine at a table, and watch koi glide through a pond full of lily pads; bamboo surrounds the patio’s exterior. The lively Burlap is often full of chatter — guests may easily migrate from the lounge to the main dining area, to each of the bars and outdoors. Progressive music played by a DJ can also be heard Thursdays through Saturdays. A private dining room is available for those seeking more seclusion.

Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at delmartimes.net. Just click on ‘Food’ or ‘On The Menu.’ Celebrity chef Brian Malarkey, co-owner of the newly opened Burlap Malarkey noted that food can be eaten anywhere in the establishment. “You can stand up in the corner if you want to,” he said. Burlap’s motto is where the “West Eats Meat”; the menu is heavy with Asian-influenced protein entrees, many of which contain ingredients such as ginger, soy and pepper. Malarkey’s favorites include the Dungeness Crab, with wasabi cocktail and avocado; Spicy Tuna-Crispy Rice, featuring albacore and spicy caper mayo; Whole “Angry” Snapper, containing serrano, orange, garlic and basil; Garlic Noodles; and Pork Belly with steamed bun, lime hoisin and pickled vege. Some vegetable options are available, such as Heirloom Tomato & Tofu, Field Greens (strawberry, seven-spice walnuts, goat cheese and plum vinaigrette) and Enoki Mushroom (arugula, smoked soy vinaigrette). “Completely kid-friendly” for lunch and early dinner Sunday through Wednesday, Burlap does not offer a children’s menu, according to Malarkey. However, the restaurant
■ This week: Burlap’s Asian Cowboy Shrimp and Grits will prepare items like french fries, chicken satay and rice, for the youngsters. Malarkey advises grown-ups to come in with friends and “work your way through the menu.” Try something new each time, he suggests, and then hang out in the lounge and order a mixed cocktail. Burlap’s signature drinks include the Shanghai Mule, made with Ty Ku sake, ginger beer, fresh lime juice and house-made Chinese five spice bitters; and the flaming Smoke and Mirrors Cocktail Co. Punch, which contains light and dark rums, Velvet Falernum, guava puree and pineapple juice. Burlap tends to get booked, especially Thursday through Saturday nights, so Malarkey recommends reservations, although walk-ins are welcome to find a seat on a couch. “There are so many things we offer,” he said. “We’re social, huge, there’s the decorations, the staff is warm and funny, the drinks are amazing. The food is over the top, unusual, fun and exciting. We’re the whole package.”

Sophomores prepare for National Charity League fashion show High school sophomores from eight local schools are preparing for their National Charity League fashion show, “STYLE re-di-find,” to be held Oct. 2 at the La Costa Resort & Spa. In addition to rehearsing on the catwalk and being fitted for the latest fashions from Tobi Blatt, Pink Lagoon, TRE and other boutiques, these girls recently posed for a photo shoot at San Dieguito County Park, which provided a natural background to highlight the “vintage femme” theme. Photographer, Lindsey Carlyle, worked her magic capturing the youthful beauty of each girl. The mission of the National Charity League is to foster the mother-daughter relationship in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. The purpose of the annual fashion show is to provide the 10th grade girls with training in the areas of poise, stage presence, self esteem and personal style. This year the event will also be a collection point for the “WE CAN” drive of canned goods for San Diego Food Bank and Military Outreach.

To Your Health: Are you at risk for diabetes?
San Diego Botanic Garden to hold Orchid Fair Oct. 1-2
BY ATHENA PHILIS-TSIMIKAS, M.D., SCRIPPS HEALTH Youâ€™ve probably heard that diabetes has become an epidemic in the United States. According to the American Diabetes Association, 18.8 million adults and children have been diagnosed with the disease, and another 7.0 million are yet to be diagnosed. Despite the rapidly increasing number of cases, however, diabetes is not a disease that happens overnight. Most cases of diabetes are type 2, which develops over time as a result of lifestyle factors such as obesity and lack of exercise. Type 2 diabetes often begins as a condition known as prediabetes, in which a personâ€™s blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not yet elevated enough to qualify as diabetes. Prediabetes is estimated to affect 79 million people in the United States, although most donâ€™t even know they have it. Though it often has no symptoms, it can do serious damage. Many people with prediabetes will develop health problems commonly associated with diabetes itself, such as an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Moreover, prediabetes is likely to lead to type 2 diabetes within 10 years. Since the condition has few if any symptoms, how do you know if you have it? A blood test that measures the level of glucose or sugar in your blood can give you an answer. There are several tests used for diagnosis. Two require fasting for at least eight hours before testing to ensure that you donâ€™t consume anything that may affect the test results (eating or drinking may raise your blood glucose levels). The fasting plasma glucose test (FPG) measures your glucose levels first thing in the morning after you have fasted during the night. A fasting blood glucose level below 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl) is considered normal; 100-126 mg/dl is considered â€œat riskâ€? for diabetes. The oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) measures your blood glucose once after you have fasted. Then, you will be given a spe-
Join the San Diego Botanic Garden for the splendidly colorful San Diego International Orchid Fair, Oct. 1 (9 a.m.-5 p.m.) and Oct. 2 (9 a.m.-4 p.m.) where countless varieties of orchids grace the grounds, some in exhibits and some for sale. Learn from the experts how to care for your newly
cial high-glucose beverage to drink; two hours after you finish it, your blood glucose levels will be measured again. At this point, a blood glucose level below 140 mg/dl is normal. Recently, a newer non-fasting test, HbA1C, has been used to measure how well your average blood glucose has been controlled over a period of two to three months. This test measures the percentage of glycated hemoglobin, or HbA1c, in your blood. A normal value is less than 5.7 percent; a value between 5.7-6.4 percent puts you in the â€œatriskâ€? category. Who should be tested? If you are age 45 or older and overweight, itâ€™s a good idea to have a prediabetes screening at your annual physical exam. Adults of any age who have other risk factors for diabetes or prediabetes, including a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides, or a history of gestational diabetes should be tested as well. Ask your physician if testing is right for you. Does being at-risk mean you are destined to develop diabetes? No. By taking steps to reduce your risk factors, such as losing excess weight and increasing exercise, you can lower your risk of developing fullblown diabetes. The recent Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health found that losing just 5 to 7 percent of body weight helped people who had a higher risk of diabetes delay or prevent the disease. This weight loss, along with 30 minutes of daily moderate physical activity such as walking, reduced the onset of diabetes by 58 percent. In fact, some patients have even seen their blood glucose levels return to normal levels as a result of this treatment. Athena Philis-Tsimikas, M.D., specializes in endocrinology with Scripps Health and is Corporate Vice President of the Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute.

Connerâ€™s Cause for Children â€˜Lasso the Loveâ€™ to take place Nov. 12 Connerâ€™s Cause for Childrenâ€™s 18th annual benefit gala, â€œLasso the Love,â€? will be held on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 5:30 p.m., at the Santaluz Club. Connerâ€™s Cause for Children is the only non-profit organization in the San Diego region that offers direct family assistance for out-ofpocket expenses relating to any and all life- threatening illnesses associated with children. The event will feature cocktails, hors dâ€™oeuvres, silent auction, dinner and a live auction. Enjoy music and line dancing by ZG Productions. The families below will be among those who benefit from the event proceeds: Nancy is the mother of 2-year old Johnny and two other children
under the age of 10. Johnny was born with severe congenital heart disease, shortly before his fatherâ€™s third deployment as a Marine to Afghanistan. Because of Johnnyâ€™s demanding treatment schedule, Nancy was unable to go back to work and tries to make do on a service memberâ€™s income, but some months she comes up short. Connerâ€™s Cause regularly sends her gas cards to help defray the costs of the hundreds of extra miles from Camp Pendleton to San Diego for Johnnyâ€™s treatments, as well as cover the costs of the special nutritional supplements Johnny needs to help him grow, which are not covered by his familyâ€™s insurance. Susan is a single mother of four young children, including 10-month-old Annie and her
2-year-old brother, Jacob, who both suffer from cystic fibrosis. When she can, Susan tries to earn extra income as a housekeeper, but it is difficult to stick to a schedule when Annie or Jacob or both are admitted to the hospital for a CF exacerbation or other critical treatments. Connerâ€™s Cause for Children regularly sends gas and Wal-Mart cards to Susan so that she can drive back and forth to the hospital when either Annie or Jacob are admitted and purchase diapers, wipes and other care related supplies for their in-home care. Tickets are $125 per person. Accepting auction donations. Sponsorship opportunities available. For more information, call (619) 540-1650 or visit www.connerscause.org.

of all ages. â€œThough itâ€™s a great film for most ages, we chose Soul Surfer in particular with a teen audience in mind,â€? said Ian Leggat, Friends of Del Mar Parks board member and one of the organizers of the Del Mar Shores Cinema Series. (Note to parents of small children: there is a brief shark scene in the film.)

Two local teens raise money to build basketball court in Uganda James Lock and Devon Roeper, both 16, traveled to Uganda during June of 2010 with the Childrenâ€™s Heritage Foundation, a Del Mar nonprofit foundation. Initially, they both spent time working at the Victorâ€™s School in Mokono, an orphanage and boarding school which boards about 400 school children in barrack-like quarters and provides K thru 8 education for a total of about 800 children. Although the school and dormitories provide a safe environment for the children, the living conditions were basic at best with 20-30 children to a bedroom and no electricity or indoor plumbing. The only water source was a pump in the middle of the school campus. They also noted that the youth in the community hung around in large groups and had no safe or constructive activities to participate in. James stayed at the Victorâ€™s School and helped build a soccer field. He remembers how excited the kids were to have a place to play soccer. â€œThey wanted to help us during their class breaks. It was so hot and humid, but they never complained, and they started playing on the field before it was complete.â€? While James remained in Mokono, Devon traveled to the north of Uganda and worked with a mobile medical team, providing medical treatment to people in the bush near the Congo and Sudan boarders. The team served 600-700 people a day, many of whom had never had access to a physician or medical treatment.
When James and Devon returned home, they were determined to make a positive difference in the lives of the children in Uganda. They both had a love for basketball and played for their respective high school teams, so they started to investigate the possibility of building a basketball court in Mokono. They began to think Devon Roeper and James Lock of ways to raise the ball jerseys. She approached her high money necessary to school, Bishopâ€™s, and was elated at a build the court. donation of over 150 jerseys and Instead of receiving presents for shorts. In June of 2011, James, a stubirthdays and Christmas, James and dent at Santa Fe Christian, returned to Devon decided ask for donations for Mokono with The Childrenâ€™s Heritage the basketball court.

James and Devon had collectively James and Devon have been told raised over $13,000. With the help of that the court has taken on a life of its parents and other adults, they coordiown and has become a gathering place; nated the acquisition of land, the hirnot just of children of the town but for ing of contractors and the purchase of the adults, as well.

Not just munities, with the goal of competing content with a basketball court, Devon began looking for donations for basket- in some national tournaments.
James and Devon are not done with their commitment to make a positive change in the lives of the children in Mokono. They both plan to return to Mokono in August of 2012 to hold a basketball clinic for boys and girls in the town. During this year, they plan to get donations for basketball shoes and equipment. They are both interested in having their efforts be bigger than just the building of a basketball court and are hoping to see a legacy of partnership develop between their schools and the kids of Mokono, that outlasts their time at Santa Fe Christian and Bishopâ€™s. James and Devon want to publicly thank everyone who has contributed to making the basketball court a reality. â€œWe couldnâ€™t have done it alone,â€? James says. If you would like to donate money, basketball equipment, athletic shoes, or uniforms for the children of Mokono and the Victorâ€™s School, please contact: Robert Lewison, Childrenâ€™s Heritage Foundation at robert@ childrensheritagefoundation.org or (619) 787â€“ 8587.

Girls Rule programming workshop offered
•Local students gain summer jobs as computer programmers
•Six-w eek introduction to Java for girls
BY VIC WINTRISS Four local teenagers have earned the opportunity to participate in paid Java programming internships at technology companies around San Diego during the summer. Wintriss Technical Schools, a nonprofit, public benefit teaching institution, offers a unique Java training program that pairs students, as young as 10 years old, with working technology professionals to learn the ins and outs of computer programming. Students learn Java from experienced, local volunteer programmers. The WTS Internship Program is an extension of the school’s after-school curriculum that teaches kids Java, starting in the fifth grade, by writing computer games and by programming robots. Students that are of legal working age of 14 are eligible to apply for a summer intern job if they have done three years of training at the school and have successfully passed the Computer Science AP exam that is given in May. Ryan Kemper, pictured at right, passed the CS AP exam in the eighth grade. Students that have met the criteria may get paid, summer internships through the program. A number of local companies are participating. “We’re thrilled at the participation we got this year from some of San Diego’s most innovative technology companies. We are looking forward to expanding the program and hope to place more students next year.” says Vic Wintriss, the executive director of Wintriss Technical Schools. Student interns perform real programming tasks, doing things like writing test tools, and fixing minor defects. “I’d much rather be programming than working at a burger place or something like that. Getting real-world programming experience is priceless”, said Jared Schrock, who worked as a Java programmer this summer. “Really, for software development most of the innovative stuff is happening at private companies. Seeing how it all works, first-hand, is really great,” he said. Nachi Baru, who passed the CS AP exam in May, spent the entire summer writ-

WTS’s goal is instill a lifelong passion for technology and innovation in its students. There are openings for Java professional programmers who would be willing to volunteer for two hours per week to help teach classes at WTS. Volunteers find the experience extremely rewarding, working one-onone with students and following them as they grasp new programming concepts. Current WTS volunteer teachers work for Qualcomm, OnRamp Wireless, Flextronics and eTouchPoint. For more information on Wintriss Technical Schools programs visit www.wintrisstech.org.
BY VIC WINTRISS Computer programming is a fun and well-paying career. Companies like Google, Apple and Amazon are some of the best places in the world to work, and women are under-represented in this professional segment. Wintriss Technical Schools, a local non-profit after school institution, offers classes to kids starting in the fifth grade who would like to learn how to write computer games and how to program robots. The school teaches the popular Java language... the language used to program the Android cell phone. The University of Washington has developed a couple of videos available on YouTube showing women at work at Google, Amazon and Microsoft. You can view them at www.wintrisstech.org/videos. A six-week, introductory workshop for girls will be offered at the WTS Carmel Valley campus starting in early October, meeting for two hours every Sunday afternoon for six weeks. The workshop will feature writing computer games, and will be taught by volunteer, local Java professionals. Scholarships are available. “I’m looking forward to this workshop”, said Aaron VonderHaar, a volunteer teacher at WTS. “We are going to make it interesting for girls”, he said. Aaron is developing the workshop curriculum with advanced student Nammi Baru. “This should be a fun workshop,” Nam-
Aaron VonderHaar and Nammi Baru working on Girls Rule curriculum mi said. “An intro workshop is a great way for students to get introduced to computer programming and to do it in a fun environment with their peers.” WTS has openings for Java professional programmers who would be willing to volunteer for two hours per week to help teach classes.

Supervisor Slater-Price recognizes river conservancyâ€™s anniversary County Supervisor Pam Slater-Price recognized the 25th anniversary of the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy recently by awarding an official county proclamation to the group. â€œThe conservancy has been a tremendous steward of the river valley,â€? Slater said. â€œPlants, animals and people owe the organization a debt of gratitude.â€? The 1,500-member conservancy, a nonprofit land trust, works in part-
nership with public and private agencies to secure property for the San Dieguito River Park. The park follows the San Dieguito River from the beach at Del Mar to its headwaters on Volcan Mountain near Julian. â€œThe county has been an important player in the creation and growth of the park,â€? said Karen Berger, a founding member of the conservancy. â€œWe thank you for that.â€?
The After School Learning Tree, a multicultural, after school enrichment program in Carmel Valley has moved to a new larger building at 11525 Sorrento Valley Road, San Diego, 92121.

The Learning Tree was established in 2004 with campuses both in Sorrento Valley and Rancho Bernardo. It retains exceptional professional educators, caring staff and encourages deep family involvement. Classes go above and beyond the normal day school curriculum by reinforcing and expanding the curriculum into advanced learning. Many students are studying beyond their grade level, which serves to prepare them for college even at the elementary level. SAT/ ACT tutoring programs are provided for high school students preparing to take college entrance exams.
Programs include: Languages of English with emphasis on reading and writing, Spanish, Chinese and Russian. Math classes and tutoring K-5 through Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry and SAT/ACT. Martial Arts, Visual Arts, Music with Piano, Guitar, Drums, Violin and Flute lessons. Sports including Chess, Soccer, Rhythmic Gymnastics, and Ballet. Services also include free school pick-up, homework tutoring, ice skating, swimming and field trips. Enrollment is offered year round during regular school calendars and summer, winter and school district breaks. The goal is to help children realize their potential as students, but also as people and as the leaders of tomorrow in a global economy. For more information about classes, curriculum or a tour, please call the school at 858-259-0066.

Coast Walkers are making their way up to Oregon BY KIRBY BROOKS Contributor A group of local residents who call themselves “The Coast Walkers,” rack up 50 miles per year on their goal to perambulate from Southern California to Oregon — not bad for trekkers age 65 and older. Group leaders Ron Williamson and Nick Haritatos have been strolling around San Diego every Sunday for the past 15 or 16 years, and dreamt up the idea of walking beyond town — with their wives in tow — 10 years ago. “We have had our feet in every hill, mountain and beach in San Diego,” Haritatos said. “So we decided to see more and walk from south of Imperial Beach, near the Mexico border, all the way up to the California/Oregon border.” Williamson chimed in, “Our walks have shown us why people say California is different. There’s no other place where you can walk all day and never run out of beach.” Both ex-pilots, Harita-
To join Coast Walkers • The next weeklong trip starts at the end of October. Newcomers are welcome by calling Nick at (858) 405-7476 or Ron at (858) 245 9338, e-mail email@example.com • If you join, van transportation and motel reservations will be made for you on a share-the-cost basis.
tos and Williamson said they relish in planning their biannual trips with the Coast Walkers, using GPS, satellite images, and a California Coastal Trail book to map out their journeys. But even though they carefully set their daily mileage goals, make no mistake, the Coast Walkers are all about fun! They stay in hotels and eat at restaurants during their weeklong excursions, “we want to keep our wives happy, after all,”
TASTE OF DEL MAR: 1pm–4pm $25 (advance purchase) $30 (day-of event)
Haritatos joked. Their days on the road begin at 7:30 a.m., when they meet for breakfast at their hotel (they try to stay two nights per stop if possible) and discuss any issues they might encounter that day. They begin walking at a “nice pace” at 8 a.m. and stop throughout the day to eat and gaze at their surroundings. Walkers are free to stop at any time. They have a driver following with a First Aid kit and other necessities. Those who don’t want to stop walking wrap up their day at 6 p.m. when the group reunites for dinner. The Coast Walkers pick hotels located along the coast and try to walk against traffic to reduce the risk of injury. They plan their route so by lunchtime they are near a state park or town where they can rest and refuel. On Oct. 31, the Coast Walkers (eight total so far) will embark on a trek from Greyhound Rock Beach (Santa Cruz) to Golden Gate
Members of the Coast Walkers include Nick and Ann Haritatos, Ron Williamson, Joanna Brown, and Leila and Marshal Taylor, pictured here looking at the Boardwalk at Santa Cruz, the midpoint in their walk from the San Diego/Tijuana border to California’s northern border. Bridge. They also have their spring trip on the horizon, with 14 people confirmed to participate. In mid-May, the Coast Walkers will make their way from San Francisco Bay to the Russian River, located South of Fort Ross.
DEL MAR ART STROLL: 10am–5pm Original artwork, live music, kids activities, dog stroll, FREE!
“I am 70 years old, so I want to reach the Oregon Border on our walks before I meet my maker,” Williamson joked. Not missing a beat, fellow walker Haritatos quipped, “We’re all younger
than he is.” Ten years into their odyssey, and having reached the mid-point at Santa Cruz, they now plan two walking vacations each year so they can reach their goal by 2015 or sooner.

Santa Fe Christian (SFC) Lower School, a college-preparatory Christian private school in Solana Beach, was named 2011 National Blue Ribbon School, a distinction by the U.S. Department of Education that ranks it among the highest performing schools nationwide. Santa Fe Christian was one of only 49 private schools in the nation awarded this year and the only private school named in California. The U.S. Department of Education will honor the entire 255 public and 49 private schools with their National Blue Ribbon School awards at a conference and awards ceremony Nov. 14-15 in Washington, D.C. The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private schools based on one of two criteria: 1) Schools whose students are high performing. These are schools ranked among each state’s highest performing schools as measured by their performance on state assessments or, in the case of private schools, that score at the highest performance level on nationally normed tests; or 2) Schools with at least 40

Fall’s Beauty and the Beast ‘pear’ up for sweet treats The Kitchen Shrink
CATHARINE L. KAUFMAN Contributor If fruits and veggies were to enter a beauty pageant, the curvaceous and graceful pear would win the swimsuit competition, while the knobby, snarly (yet sweet and mild-tempered) celery root would definitely snag Miss Congeniality. These are two of autumn’s most divine bounty. We Make a Perfect Pear In the produce aisles, the bevy of beauties is displayed in Technicolor rows – emerald Boscs, rubytinged Anjous, golden Asian pears and periodot Bartletts. Pears are close cousins to apples, the American varieties originating from Central
Asia, with a migration pit stop though Europe. They are as healthful as they are divine with a powerhouse of potassium to replenish lost liquids in the body, along with 10 percent of the daily Vitamin C requirements and a motherload of antioxidants. The fiber in pear’s high pectin content makes this fruit one of nature’s best rotorooters. As an added boon, pears have zero cholesterol, sodium and saturated fat, and dial-up energy with high amounts of fructose and glucose, and the planet’s sweetest of natural sugars, Levulose. Anjous are named after the region in France where they’re plentiful. When ripe, these beauts yield to slight pressure around the stem, but when the skin is mostly yellow, they are probably over ripe. Super sweet, Anjous pair well with assorted cheeses, are ideal for dessert tarts, or sliced in warm wilted salads. Although Asian pears physically resemble apples they originate from a pear tree species native to China, Japan and Korea. These are best eaten solo munched like an apple. Unlike other
pears these are solidly firm when ripe, and don’t yield with pressure. A strong, sweet aroma is the telltale sign of ripeness. The Bartlett, discovered in 1765 by a British schoolmaster, is ripe when the green morphs to yellow and exudes a sweet aroma. This stunner is the most common canned variety, while it can be baked, poached, tossed in salads or eaten in hand. Boscs are typically dark yellow with some sprin-
klings of cinnamon-colored specks on the skin. They are grown in California, Washington and Oregon. Pears ripen best in cool, dark places and can be refrigerated for a few days. Like all delicate beauties, handle with care. When serving sliced raw pears, squeeze a few drops of fresh lemon juice on the cut surface to prevent discoloration. Celery Root Rocks Like the ugly duckling,
the celery root, aka celeriac, is frequently passed over in the produce aisle for its homely and earthy appearance. But among chefs and foodies, celeriac is king, especially for preparing the beloved cold French salad recipe Celery Remoulade. Don’t be fooled by its gnarly exterior, as this root rocks. Once the knobby skin is peeled, the alabaster flesh, sweet and appletextured that exudes herbivorous nuances of celery and fresh parsley can be shredded into salads or a celeriac slaw, puréed with potatoes and wild mushrooms, added to soups to hike up flavor, baked in gratins or roasted with a drizzle of olive oil and herbs. Packed with potassium and phosphorous, celery root makes a refreshing non-starch substitute for potatoes. When selecting celeriac, pick one that is firm to the touch and the size of a softball, as the larger roots tend to be woody. They store well in a cool, dry place for three to four months. Once peeled, prepare a milk bath with lemon juice to preserve its creamy color.
Roasted Pears with Pecans Kick off the season with these blissful baked Boscs, and when you think it can’t get any better, top it with a dollop of vanilla bean gelato. Ingredients 3 firm Boscs or Anjous peeled, halved, cored 1/2 cup toasted, chopped pecans Juice from one lemon 1/3 cup unfiltered apple juice 1/3 cup dark brown sugar 3 tablespoons sweet butter Method: Preheat oven to 375º F. Place pears core side up in a square-baking dish, fitting tightly. Squeeze lemon juice on cut surfaces, and fill indentations with pecans. In a small saucepan heat juice and sugar on low, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add butter, and stir until melted. Pour mixture over the pears and bake until golden and tender, about 30 minutes. Top with gelato, or frozen treat of your choice. For additional pear or celery root recipes e-mail email@example.com or check out FreeRangeClub.com.

Q&A continued from page B1 be organized in the same ways of directing a parade, pageant or the Olympic opening ceremonies. I do have a stage manager team of four who are the most ontop-of teams I’ve ever worked with, but necessary since I need to know very hour what we’re working on.
Ken Druck and Hillary Clinton
DRUCK continued from page B1 “I was feeling like I was in the presence of something so honorable that had been given to the families of those who were lost, including police and firefighters and first responders, and the overwhelming sense of love,” said Druck of the ceremony. Druck was inspired to launch a nonprofit foundation dedicated to helping families through the bereavement process after his older daughter, Jenna, died in a 1996 bus crash while studying in India. The Jenna Druck Center offers support groups, grief education and other services for people whose loved ones have died. The center also has a program that offers mentoring and leadership training for teenage girls. Over the years, Druck — who was trained as a psychologist but no longer practices — has been called to assist at numerous tragic events, from airline crashes to school shootings. In 2001, he received requests to help families of the Sept. 11

victims deal with their loss. Over the next four to five years, he traveled back to his native New York to meet with families, consult with the New York Fire Department and help set up programs for the bereaved. He has also worked with North County residents and others from Southern California who lost relatives in the Sept. 11 attacks. His approach, said Druck, is to deal with grief on a human level. “Our orientation is to normalize and humanize grief,” he said. “Grief is a human, normal response to loving somebody and losing them.” The Sept. 11 commemoration, he said, offered a bittersweet opportunity to reconnect with people he has worked with over the years, and also to experience the newly opened memorial in person. He recalled one man who came up and hugged him, because an inspirational CD Druck had recorded about dealing with the loss of a loved one had helped the man deal with his own grief. Druck said he spoke with Hillary Clinton, who
Hope for a Cure fundraiser to be held Oct. 8 Hope for a Cure’s annual fundraiser, which includes a wine tasting, appetizers, entertainment and a silent auction is coming up soon. This year the event is on Saturday, Oct. 8, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Del Mar Marriott. Hope for a Cure is a unique non-profit organization. Its board identifies cancer researchers in the San Diego area that are in need of scientific equipment to further their efforts in the treatment of cancer. Hope for a Cure raises the funds, locate the equipment, purchase it directly from the manufacturer and donate it directly to the scientist. They have no overhead or administrative fees. 99% of every donated dollar goes to purchase the equipment. The event is fun and educational. For details, visit www. hopeforacurefoundation.org. You can buy tickets ahead of time by calling 858-7562405.
along with her husband, President Bill Clinton, helped clear the way for Jenna Druck’s body to be transported back to the United States after her death. Druck continues to serve on the board of the Jenna Druck Center and also run support groups and teach grief education classes. His for-profit business, Druck Enterprises, Inc., provides such services as executive coaching, organizational consulting and teambuilding support. He said he is proud of the role the Jenna Druck Center has played in helping victims of the Sept. 11 tragedy, along with helping others dealing with the loss of friends or relatives. “Our challenge as a community and a nation is trying to become more griefliterate. Our challenge going forward is to turn painful memories into expressions of love for what we’ve lost,” he said. For more information, visit www.jennadruckcenter. org.
Q. You worked with Todd before on several shows including “On the Levee” at the Lincoln Center. What’s your collaboration like? A: There is fluidity between us that makes it possible to do something like this. He’s one of the most talented composers of a new generation of musical theater writers, and he has a generous spirit, which this project requires in working with all of these people. Q. “Odyssey” chroni-
cles the trials the ancient Greek hero Odysseus faces on his long journey home from the war at Troy. Disguised as a beggar he must win back his wife, Penelope, and take revenge on the suitors who have been circling her in his absence. Why was this the story you chose to tell? A: I spent 14-hour days talking to people all over San Diego – from Balboa Park, the YMCA, border guards, and people taking tutoring sessions – to ask how they came to make San Diego their home. A recurring theme arose that made me think of the “Odyssey,” one of our great narratives of a journey toward home, or someone trying to reconcile with their family. Q. Does it help that choreographers Tony and Maria Caligagan have Globe experience? A: Yes. In addition to knowing the space and institution, they have an ease with each other, and with
this big of a production, you need two choreographers. Q. In addition to community groups there are professional cast members as well? A: Yes. Todd and I worked with Shelly Thomas (Penelope/Circe) before in “On The Levee.” Todd knew Alvin Crawford from Julliard and thought he would be the perfect Odysseus. And Todd plays the Singer. Q. Do you have a favorite element of the show? A: Every time a new group comes into the room I feel like I’m falling in love with them. They are all so great, especially since among the 47-core ensemble, a lot had never performed a production before. But then we have three female students from the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts who blew us away. It will be a terrific event.
