BY KRISTINA HOUCK Solana Beach voters will finally hit the polls Feb. 11 to have their say on a use policy for Fletcher Cove Community Center. City policy, which the Solana Beach City Council adopted Aug. 28, permits no more than one private party every other weekend. It limits parties to 50 people, restricts live music and limits drinks to two per person. If approved, Proposition B would permit as many as eight parties per month at the 1,100-square-foot center. The policy would allow 100 people at events with live music and no limit on drinks. Prop B came after more than two years of debate beSee VOTE, page 6

Del Mar City Council establishes Shores Park Master Plan

Toast to Torrey

The Torrey Pines High School Foundation is preparing for its spring fundraiser, “Pump Up the Volume,” to be held at the Belly Up in Solana Beach on March 23 from 5- 8 p.m. The kickoff event for the spring fundraiser,“Toast to Torrey,” was held Feb. 1 at the home of Sophia and Louay Alsadek.

BY KRISTINA HOUCK To move forward with a plan for Del Mar Shores Park, the City Council on Feb. 3 established a Shores Park Master Plan Committee. While a consultant prepares the plan, the committee will provide oversight on the process and community input. “I think it’s very important that this be done in a very thorough way so the community has a chance to prioritize its desires,” Councilman Terry Sinnott said. “It’s a very important task.” The council voted in August 2007 to purchase the $8.5 million property from the school district, with the intent to preserve current open space and recreational uses, continue operation of The Winston See SHORES, page 6

Residents looking for stop sign solution for ‘problem intersection’ in Carmel Valley BY KAREN BILLING A proposal for a stop sign at an intersection considered dangerous for pedestrians in the Carmel Del Mar neighborhood will be on the agenda at February’s Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting, hoping to prompt a safe resolution from the city. The problem intersection at Worsch Drive where it turns into Carmel Park Drive at Santa Nella Place, was brought to the city’s attention by resident Joe Rossettie. Rossettie, who has lived in the neighborhood since 2007, raised the issue a year-and-a- half ago, resulting in the installation of a crosswalk. ‘The crosswalk didn’t do anything to slow traffic

and mitigate the risk for children,” Rossettie said. In December 2013 there was an accident at the intersection that almost resulted in children getting hit by cars. Rossettie said he was thankful that no children were hurt, but felt it was his responsibility to continue to push the issue as the crosswalk does not provide enough safety. The problem portion of Worsch Drive features a downhill and a curve going south and Rossettie said people can pick up speeds there very quickly. Many families use the Santa Nella cul-de-sac as a drop-off spot for children as the court abuts a pathway that leads right into Carmel Del Mar School. Rossettie said the limit

was raised to 30 miles per hour last year to allow speeding enforcement, but drivers’ speeds are averaging close to 40 miles per hour. They often ignore the crosswalk and the crosswalk signage and do not stop, he said. Kids on the west corner of Santa Nella face a completely blind corner due to the curve. They have to venture out nearly halfway into the lane of oncoming traffic — sometimes flying down the hill — to see if any cars are coming up the hill, Rossettie said. “Adults don’t even think it’s safe (to cross),” Rossettie said.

Expert shares tips on Internet safety for teens

Coots on the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club grounds. Courtesy photo

American coots create problems on local links •Fairbanks Ranch Country Club uses both lethal and non-lethal means to deal with migratory birds, prompting some complaints. BY JOE TASH The Fairbanks Ranch Country Club and its 27hole golf course are home to some 150 different types of wildlife, including golden eagles, hawks, mallards and ospreys. But one species in particular, the American coot, a black water bird with a distinctive white beak, causes major headaches. “We’re dealing with a sanitation issue,” said Steve Wittert, general manager of the private club, which is on San Dieguito Road in Rancho Santa Fe. The migratory coot population, which can number in the thousands of birds each year, defecates on

golf course greens and tee areas, making a mess and triggering complaints from club members. “There is pressure from all of our members to try to move the coots to areas that are out of play,” said Wittert. The problem is so bad that the club has applied for and received a “depredation permit” from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which allows the use of lethal means to dispose of up to 350 coots per year. The club also has tried, and continues to use, a variety of non-lethal means to keep the coots away from high-traffic areas

of the course, Wittert said. Club personnel use shotguns to kill the birds during their winter and spring migratory season, generally from November through April, and notify law enforcement each time, Wittert said. The blasts take place once a week or so, in the early morning, and have prompted sporadic complaints from neighbors. The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA have also criticized the practice. “We’re just trying to maintain a balance between happy members and a sani-

BY KAREN BILLING As the SafetyNet director for the San Diego Police Foundation, Darlene Kanzler has given hundreds of talks about keeping teens safe online. Often, after hearing tales of best friends sharing incriminating photos, identity thieves, online predators and cyberbullies, both parents and teens remark on being left “scared.” Kanzler agreed that the Internet can sometimes be scary but said it also has value and is an unavoidable part of our lives today. “(Teens) are going to be online every day for the rest of their lives, they just have to be smart about it,” said Kanzler at a talk held at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Del Mar on Jan. 29. “They have to learn how to navigate this world.” The San Diego Police Foundation partnered with the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children task force to create the SafetyNet initiative, and in the last two-anda-half years Kanzler has talked to more than 100,000 children in San Diego about staying safe online. According to a 2009 study by the Kaiser Family Foundation, because of their ability to multi-task, teens are on some kind of media device 53 hours a week, and thanks to the Internet and smart phones, teens have unlimited access to their friends and drama. It used to be that when a kid went home for the day, they could get away from a possessive friend or boyfriend or a bully but as Kanzler said, “Now they can carry a bully in their pocket.” Cyberbullying can mean posting photos or rumors, forwarding texts or pictures that are meant to embarrass or posing as someone else online, which is illegal. Kanzler said a good thing for teens to

SEE COOTS, page 6

remember is, “if you wouldn’t say it in person, don’t say it online.” The best way to handle being cyberbullied or harassed is for teens to tell an adult. While Kanzler said 60 percent of teens say they would not go to their parents if someone was making them uncomfortable online out of embarrassment or fear of having privileges revoked, it’s important for kids to have adults they can talk to when a bad situation arises. “No kid wants to be a snitch but it’s not being a tattletale if someone is getting hurt,” Kanzler said. Adults can help handle cyberbullying situations by blocking communication, blocking the “friend,” changing numbers or email addresses, saving the abusive texts or reporting abuse to the website. Kanzler said she has found YouTube to be the most responsive in taking down inappropriate material (especially teen violence), but Instagram and Facebook are a little more challenging. Social media savvy The biggest piece of advice Kanzler gives to teens is “Think before you post.” Once you post something to the Internet you do not own it anymore, it is officially out of your control. Kanzler said it’s important to remind children that there is no privacy online; they are not as anonymous as they think they are. “You will be judged for what you say and post so you need to put your best foot forward because people are watching and you don’t know who,” Kanzler said, noting it could be not just a fellow peer but a friend’s parent, a college admissions officer, a potential employer or a member of the general public.

Police remind residents to stay alert in light of recent Former Carmel Valley resident arrested in Chicago for murder BY CITY NEWS SERVICE residential burglaries in Del Mar Heights area A 21-year-old man from Carmel Valley was in custody in Chicago Jan. 30 on suspicion BY KAREN BILLING The Northwestern Division of the San Diego Police Department recently reported an increase in residential burglaries in the Del Mar Heights area. The department asks that residents call in any unfamiliar vehicles on the streets or other suspicious activity. On Friday, Jan. 24, a residential burglary occurred on the 2100 block of Del Mayo Road during the late afternoon and evening hours. The suspect used an unlocked side door to gain entry and stole jewelry, cash and purses. On Tuesday, Jan. 28, a burglary took place in the 13000 block of Boquita Drive. The suspect entered the home via an unlocked door and took jewelry and cash. The home and the rear guest house had been ransacked. In addition, a burglary attempt was made in the 13000 block of Portofino Drive on Saturday, Jan. 18, during the daytime hours. The suspect used an unknown tool to pry at a kitchen window, side garage door,and a rear sliding door in an unsuccessful attempt to gain entry.

of strangling his 55-year-old roommate in the Windy City. Grant Muren was arrested in Chicago Jan. 23 on suspicion of first-degree murder and concealing a homicide in connection with the death of Charles Clarke, whose body was found in his townhouse in the Chicago suburb of Naperville on Jan. 22, according to DuPage County authorities. Muren, a former Carmel Valley resident who attended high school at San Dieguito Academy in Encinitas, allegedly killed Clarke during an argument that erupted following a sexual encounter, NBC San Diego’s affiliate in Chicago reported. Just eight hours earlier, Muren had moved into Clarke’s townhouse after answering a Craigslist ad for a roommate. Prosecutors alleged that after the killing, Muren removed his personal belongings from the residence, attempted to burn his lease agreement and turned on the gas to the stove. Police responding to a report of a natural gas leak discovered the body in a bedroom area, NBC Chicago reported.

Council establishes standard operating principles for Del Mar advisory committees and boards

BY KRISTINA HOUCK The Sheriff’s Department recently investigated a report that signs in favor of Proposition B in Solana Beach were taken down. A press release from Prop B proponents said “a woman was caught on tape taking a Yes on B sign and putting it under her coat.� Capt. Robert Haley, of the Encinitas Sheriff’s Station, said Solana Beach City Manager David Ott received complaints from residents that signs were removed. “We couldn’t confirm or deny that,� said Haley, who learned about the reported incident about two weeks ago. “But we haven’t had any reports since then.� In another incident, a man reportedly visited the home of a Prop B supporter. When the woman answered her door the man said, “I just wanted to see what you look like.� “There were no threats. The person just wanted to inform us because she thought it was unusual,� said Haley, who noted the incident occurred at the end of last week. “She didn’t feel intimidated.�

Sheriff’s Dept. investigates theft report of Prop B signs

BY KRISTINA HOUCK Del Mar advisory committees and boards now have a best practices guide. The City Council on Feb. 3 adopted standard operating principles to help guide committees and boards on common issues. The principles outline membership, agendas, meeting conduct, and records and reporting. The council previously reviewed a staff report and draft resolution on standard operating principles on March 18, April 15 and June 17. A subcommittee of council members worked with the city clerk to further refine the language of the proposed principles. “I think the council has struggled for a number of months and the city staff has been working feverishly on some sort of effort to provide some guidance for our committees,� said Councilman Terry Sinnott. “The initial drafts and our initial attempts, I think, there was a reaction that some of the guidance was a little bit too prescriptive. I think what we have come up with in this particular proposal is a basic guidance for all committees but not stepping into the independence or ability of individual committees to plan and create as they normally do.� The council establishes advisory committees and boards so residents can review various issues and provide recommendations to the council. Earlier in the meeting, the council established a Shores Park Master Plan Committee to provide community input and oversight on the master plan process.

Sheriff’s Dept. issues warning about suspicious phone calls The San Diego Sheriff’s Department (SDSD) has recently received several telephone calls from persons inquiring about suspicious telephone calls they have received. In these calls, a male individual identifies himself as a member the Sheriff’s Department. The caller, who impersonates a peace officer, claims that the person answering the phone or a family member has an outstanding warrant for their arrest, and that an immediate cash payment must be made to avoid arrest. Sheriff Bill Gore said that the SDSD will not call anyone seeking payment for outstanding arrest warrants. Persons are encouraged to report such calls to the Sheriff’s Department at 858-565-5200 or to their local police agency. Anyone with information about this case can call the Sheriff’s Department non-emergency line at (858)565-5200. Callers can remain anonymous and be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Call Crime Stoppers at (888)580-8477.

Del Mar City Council discusses citizen satisfaction survey

BY KRISTINA HOUCK Del Mar residents may soon be able to share their thoughts on city services through a survey. The city is moving forward with a citizen satisfaction survey, which will measure Del Mar’s performance and assess community needs. “The survey could be helpful for the council as well as for staff to help evaluate performance of city services and programs, assist in future funding decisions and be used as a management tool,� said Andrew Potter, the city’s administrative director, during the Feb. 3 council meeting. The city last conducted a survey in 2006. Fairbanks, Maslin, Maullin and Associates conducted 245 phone interviews with randomly selected Del Mar voters. The survey found that 96 percent of respondents believed the quality of life in Del Mar to be

excellent or good. Only 4 percent said the quality of life was just fair or poor. “I think we do need a survey,� Mayor Lee Haydu said. “It was interesting reading the one that was done before, but it didn’t really tell me anything other than everything is great.� Council members agreed that the city should hire a consultant to conduct the survey rather than having staff design and conduct the survey. Deputy Mayor Al Corti and Councilman Terry Sinnott will serve as council liaisons for development of the survey. Staff will return to the council at a later date with more information on survey costs and delivery recommendations. In Del Mar’s adopted budget, the council budgeted $15,000 in the current fiscal year for a resident and business customer service survey, according to the staff report.

INTERNET continued from page 2 A group of teens realized just how true it is that there is no anonymity online in 2012 when they posted racist comments on twitter about President Barack Obama’s re-election. The website Jezebel took the most terrible tweets and researched who the kids were, easily finding them as their accounts were all connected to Facebook and other social media accounts. The site sent their tweets to the students’ schools and places of work. Several were suspended or expelled as they had signed code of conduct contracts at school, one lost a job, and another had a college scholarship revoked. “Remind kids to be respectful online because there are real life consequences for what happens online,” Kanzler said. Kanzler told another story about a kid in Santee who recently thought it would be funny to post a photo of himself posing as a gang member. Members of

the gang saw the photo, found him and beat him up — his photo almost cost him his life. Teens need to know that taking and texting nude or explicit photos of themselves is considered child pornography and they can be prosecuted. It doesn’t matter whom the material is meant for, it often ends up in places you would not want it to. “Once it’s sent, you no longer have a choice as to what happens to it,” Kanzler said. Last year there was a sexting case involving 30 students at seven local schools reportedly including Canyon Crest Academy, Cathedral Catholic High and Carmel Valley Middle School. Kanzler said a dozen girls sent out explicit photos to their boyfriends, which led to the photos being distributed out to many different people. The photos were considered child pornography but criminal charges have not yet been filed. Kids use SnapChat to send photos of themselves,

Rick Emmerson, who lives on a bluff in the Rancho Del Mar neighborhood above the 274-acre country club, said he has been hearing the early morning gunshots for several years, and has spoken to club officials about it. He said the club was cooperative in agreeing to conduct its coot eradication efforts slightly later in the morning. Along with the noise, Emmerson said he is concerned about possible fire danger from the shotgun blasts, as well objecting on humanitarian grounds. “I don’t think there’s any good reason for a death sentence to be issued when there are non-lethal means available” to control the birds, Emmerson said. Emmerson contacted the San Diego Humane Society, which researched the issue and determined there were no regulations prohibiting the practice of shooting coots, said spokeswoman Kelli Schry. “Unfortunately, as terrible as it is there’s nothing we can do to regulate it,“ said Schry. “We would absolutely encourage using nonlethal methods. We don’t encourage any kind of harm to any animal, domestic or wildlife.” Eddie Owens, a wildlife biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Sacramento office, said a number of golf courses in San Diego and Riverside counties have depredation permits issued by his agency, specifically regarding American coots. The permits are good for one season, and must be renewed each year. Golf courses and other property owners that obtain permits must demonstrate they have

feeling secure in the app’s promise that the photos disappear in three seconds. But even Snapchat photos can be captured in a screen shot, saved and sent wherever, Kanzler said. People have figured out how to bypass the notification system that a photo has been saved. Facetime or Skype conversations can also be recorded and images captured. “There’s no delete in digital,” Kanzler said. Keep personal information private Scams come in all shapes and sizes online — through everything from quizzes to fake contests, thieves and online predators are looking for ways to mine personal information. Kids should know never to share information such as addresses or numbers online, and parents should make sure they understand the privacy settings on the sites they use. The best way to secure accounts is to have good passwords, Kanzler said, thinking beyond “12345.” Use special characters, upper and lowercase, and think longer, up to 15 characters. When playing online games, encourage kids to pick a user name that doesn’t give away their age or location, and to keep conversations with people they’re playing with just about the game because you never know who is really on the other side. New York State started an initiative to get sex offenders off online gaming sites in 2012 and, in one year alone, got 2,100 of them and that was only the ones who used their real names.

used and continue to use non-lethal means to control the birds, and that killing the birds is a last resort, Owens said. “You must have a wildlife hazard management plan in conjunction with this depredation permit. This isn’t just a permit you can get and go on a shooting spree, you must have a program that utilizes a variety of non-lethal techniques in conjunction with your lethal removal,” Owens said. The Fairbanks Ranch Country Club has received a depredation permit to kill American coots for all but about three of the past 13 years, Owens said. Wittert said the club has spoken to a university professor to learn about the coot, and conducted its own research. “We have tried everything that has been available that we’ve ever read about,” said Wittert, including dogs, falcons, pyrotechnics, scarecrows, mylar balloons, pictures of coyotes, and remotecontrol boats and airplanes. “None of them has been effective.” Along with the eradication efforts, on any given day, up to six club employees are assigned to walk toward the coots and shoo them away from playing areas and toward the water. ”You can imagine how expensive that is,” he said. The coot population — which is not an endangered species, according to Owen — varies from year to year, but has been particularly bad in recent years, Wittert said. Some 5,000 birds migrated to the golf course last year, and this year’s population is about 1,000 birds. Owens said the numbers may be down due to a relatively mild winter in Northern California, so the birds don’t migrate as far south. Wittert said Fairbanks Ranch isn’t the only local course dealing with the birds. The superintendent of one local course, who asked not to be named, said his course

Fairbanks Ranch prides itself on environmental stewardship, and has been certified by the Audobon Society for water conservation, wildlife and habitat management and environmental planning, said Wittert. Emmerson said he understands the club’s need to deal with the sanitary issues caused by the coots, but urged the organization to use only non-lethal methods in the future. Wittert responded: “We will use the means that are legally available to us.”

BELL continued from page 5 “The Siemens Competition participants were all students and they’re also incredibly intelligent,” Eric said. “I was very surprised to also win this competition.” Eric is the only winner from the West Coast. For their research on the ozone resistance of plants, New Yorkers Priyanka Wadgaonkar, Zainab Mahmood and JiaWen Pei received the $100,000 grand prize scholarship in the Team category. The three East Coast students also rang the closing bell. This was Eric’s first time visiting New York. When not doing schoolwork, working on his research project or sharing his work with others, Eric is looking forward to his future. He has already been accepted to Harvard University. “I’m not sure if I can top last year, but I’m really hoping to continue my work,” said Eric, who wants to be a college professor or entrepreneur. “It’s still something I want to invest my time in when I’m in college. Hopefully, if I keep working on it, something really great will come out of it.” for volunteers and receives applications, the council will appoint up to seven members to represent Del Mar’s diverse community interests for the Shores Park Master Plan.

where current grading is bringing an existing hill down to street level for the construction of the homes. Residents expressed concerns about the accessibility for pedestrians on the sidewalk on Del Mar Trails as construction is ongoing — there is a child who uses a wheelchair to get to school in the neighborhood. Developer Gary Levitt said that they would address the situation and keep the construction fencing out of the sidewalk as much as possible. The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board’s next meeting is Thursday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. at the Carmel Valley Library.

Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Center opens at Flower Hill Promenade •Free community event scheduled for Feb. 15 By KAREN BILLING The new Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Center opened at Flower Hill Promenade on Jan. 27. The center’s staff members arrived for their first day of work to warm greetings and gifts of Clementine oranges, ready to treat the first patients booked for appointments that day. The happy greeting into the sparkling, state-of-the-art new center was just another part of the “Sharp experience”— to keep employees happy by being the best place to work, the best place to practice medicine and the best place to receive care, according to Stacey Hrountas, chief executive officer. The Del Mar location is Sharp Rees-Stealy’s 21st in the region and helps reach its goal to expand its footprint in the North Coastal community. “Being located in Flower Hill Promenade is a little bit different for us, a lot of our offices are standalone buildings but we’re excited about it,” Hrountas said. “We’re excited about being in the community and offering the Sharp experience.” The center will offer family medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, onsite laboratory and radiology services, plus specialties including dermatology, endocrinology, musculoskeletal clinic and orthopedics. Many physicians are “doubleboarded” in internal medicine and pediatrics.

“What makes that exciting is that they can work with a senior patient about their goals for health care and then their next patient is a pediatric patient,” Hrountas said, noting it’s nice for the physicians to have the ability to take care of a broad spectrum of the community. The center is 29,364 square feet, which is more than four times the size of its Carmel Valley medical center. Some doctors and the entire OB/GYN department will be moving from Carmel Valley to Del Mar; the Carmel Valley location will continue to have family medicine, internal medicine/pediatrics and a laboratory. Patients can park on the third floor of the parking garage reserved for Sharp and, for the best patient experience, are encouraged to enter the garage the back way on Flower Hill Drive off San Andres. There is a main entrance to the center right off the garage or patients can opt to take the elevator entrance near Whole Foods Market. The theme of the new building is “nature and well-being” and that theme is incorporated into the design. A beautiful tree art installation lights up in the lobby revealing the words “nature” and “well-being” in the shadows of the branches on the wall. Hrountas said the aim is for the center to be a “calming, healing and comfortable” experience with an arts and crafts-beachy design with soft lighting, light woods and

stained glass accents throughout. There are lots of windows and cozy chairs throughout the waiting areas and there’s a wrap-around outdoor balcony that can be used for reception space with great Del Mar views and seats by outdoor fountains. Sharp further brings nature indoors with the use of Solatubes in the dermatology exam rooms that allow for abundant natural light. A new feature implemented at Sharp centers last summer is the self-check-in kiosks. Patients can check in for appointments on the kiosks as well as update their information or pay co-payment fees. Del Mar is Sharp’s 12th facility with check-in kiosks. A free community event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 15, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to introduce the center and staff to the public, as well as offer free health screenings with same- day results for blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose. Guests must RSVP at sharp.com on the events page. In addition, Flower Hill Promenade health and wellness tenants are offering a variety of specials on Feb. 15, including mini spa services and giveaways from Spa Gregorie’s, yoga demonstrations from CorePower Yoga, frozen yogurt treats from Yogurtland, samples from Nothing Bundt Cakes and healthy cooking demonstrations from Whole Foods Market. Guests can also enjoy live music, catered food and fun take-home bags.

Local researcher searches for cures in the sea BY KRISTINA HOUCK From the peaks of the Himalayas to the swamps of Bangladesh, researchers have scoured the Earth’s land looking for medical breakthroughs. Soil actinomycetes and fungi were major sources for antibiotic discovery, Dr. William Fenical explained to attendees at Del Mar Foundation’s Speaker Series event Jan. 24. But more than 95 percent of the underwater world remains unexplored. “This is 70 percent of the Earth,” said Fenical as he pointed to a projected image of the ocean during his talk at the Del Mar Powerhouse. “They never once thought about exploring the world’s oceans. There was always someone as a naysayer.” As a distinguished professor of oceanography at UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography and director of the Center for Marine Biotechnology and Biomedicine at Scripps, Fenical explores the world’s oceans in hopes of discovering marine-derived compounds for the treatment of cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer’s and other diseases for which there are limited treatments and no cures. “We focus on the discovery of drugs that we desperately need,” he said. “We hope one day we will cure these.” Since joining Scripps in 1973, Fenical has studied the chemistry of marine plants, microorganisms and invertebrate animals. In 1983, Fenical discovered a sea whip off the Bahamas. From the sea whip, he isolated an agent that acted as an anti-inflammatory in humans. The university patented the substance, known as pseudopterosin, and Estee Lauder purchased the cosmetic rights for use in skin-care products. Today, the Solana Beach-based research scientist and his team collaborate with the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at UC San Diego, the Moores Cancer Center and a number of other scientists. In the last year, a team at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, led by Fenical, discovered a new chemical compound from an ocean microbe that shows early promise of combating anthrax and other ailments such as methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus. With federal grant support dwindling and public frustration about the perceived lack of progress from the scientific community growing, Fenical said he wants to educate the public, encourage donations and expand collaboration.

Coastal Communities Concert Band to honor Sammy Nestico at concerts to be held Feb. 8-9 The Coastal Communities Concert Band will present “Sammy Nestico — The First 90 Years” at the band’s 31st anniversary concerts on Saturday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 9, at 2 p.m. at Carlsbad Community Church (3175 Harding Street, Carlsbad). The event will honor acclaimed composer/arranger Sammy Nestico with special guest The First Marine Division Band from Camp Pendleton. Tickets can be purchased online at www.cccband.com

Dr. William Fenical He invited community members to learn more about the work at Scripps Institution of Oceanography by visiting the facilities. “The skepticism of science is destroying our ability to maintain our premiere lead in science and innovation in the United States,” he said. “People making fun of something they don’t know, they don’t understand, is horrible in terms of impact. “Without continual investment, as we should be doing, our competitiveness worldwide is really being challenged. If we don’t do something about it, China will outstrip us in scientific discovery in the next 10 years. I don’t want to see what that looks like.” For more information about the Center for Marine Biotechnology and Biomedicine, visit cmbb.ucsd.edu.

The Deputy Mayor Should Know Better Solana Beach Deputy Mayor has made so many untrue statements in her letter to Solana Beach voters, it is difficult to know where to start to get at the truth. First of all, she says there have been few rentals of the Community Center because there is no heat; she should visit the center and look up because there is a central heating system on the ceiling with a thermostat on the side wall. According to her, there is no view after 5 PM in the winter. This is true because under the current restrictive rules for a family event, you must stay inside the room and you cannot use the south or west patio and lawn to enjoy the white water waves or the sunset as you could in the 1990s. Free access to the outside will once again be permitted under Prop B. The Deputy Mayor would have you believe the requirement for a subsequent vote for amendments of an Initiative is unique to Prop B. Actually, the requirement is in the California State Constitution that establishes the Initiative process. After Prop B passes, the Council cannot again close the facility to family celebrations. Where is she getting this misinformation? Nowhere in Prop B does it say amplified music will be allowed outdoors. Please, Deputy Mayor, go to our website (www.CitizensforSolanaBeach.com) and read the provisions in the Initiative or simply read your sample ballot.

WE ARE PLEASED TO

Welcome

Liz Nederlander Coden to Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty as a proven leader in representing distinctive homes “Since my greatest priority is to provide my clients with the highest level of service in every way, 3DFLÀF6RWKHE\·V,QWHUQDWLRQDO5HDOW\ is the only choice for me.” Liz

She charges Prop B is vague and ambiguous...it has only 7 general guidelines which are consistent with current city laws. It is specifically designed not to be prescriptive in order for the City Council to write the details of the rental regulations in the Special Event Permits. Other inaccuracies in her letter: only 15% of voters signed the petition. She should know the Registrar of Voters only verified the needed signatures of 1,311 which is 15%; we had over 2,000 signatures which equals 25% of the voters. She also misrepresented the facts regarding the noise ordinance, gave 2 wrong dates on filing the petitions and the subsequent council meeting. She says she objects to campaigns which “twist the truth or flat out lie in order to trick people into voting their way”. This is exactly what she has done.

Voters of Solana Beach, please ask yourself why is our City Council so determined to control the outcome of this election? It is not the money. The Deputy Mayor refers to the $200,000 cost of this special election. If she and her fellow council members were effective stewards of our money, they would have opted for a trial period with Prop B and submitted the issue to voters in the June primary at a cost of less than $10,000. – Mary Jane Boyd ©MMVIII Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion; See pages 14-15 for more. San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Rick Schmitt’s Monthly Update Superintendent Rick Schmitt plans to update the greater San Dieguito Union High School District community through our local media with a monthly update. Topics covered will include curriculum, facilities, budget, safety and other specific and special interest topics. Today’s update focuses on 2014-15 SDUHSD budget information, possibilities and concerns. With the release of Gov. Jerry Brown’s budget proposal for the 2014-15 school year, I thought this would be a good time to give an update on our current budget and an early outlook for the next year. The path to recovery, which began with the passage of Prop 30’s temporary taxes in 2013, continues into 2014 as we approach the second school year without the threat of state cuts looming over our heads. In fact, the governor has proposed increasing funding to Proposition 98 as the generalRick Schmitt economy continues to slowly climb out of this most recent recession. However, the overall increase in state education funding will benefit those public school districts that are funded via the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) rather than Basic Aid districts like the San Dieguito Union High School District, which are funded primarily through local property taxes. This will be important to keep in mind as you read and hear about the increases in funding allocated to many other San Diego County school districts. As the state moves forward with phasing in the LCFF over the next eight or more years, each district’s demographics and how far away they are from reaching their target level of funding will drive how much additional revenue those districts will receive. With San Dieguito, any improvement in our income will be based on increases in the property taxes paid within our boundaries. Perhaps our biggest disappointment with the governor’s proposed budget is the lack of ongoing funding for implementation of Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The state provided one-time funding this school year for professional development, purchase of instructional materials and technology associated with CCSS. The transition to CCSS will take many years and our needs to provide more training and purchase new instructional materials aligned with CCSS will not expire with the one-time infusion of state money. I have personally met with our local state senator and assemblymember to express this concern. The challenges we will face as we approach the next school year include: •Projecting our property tax revenue as the housing prices improve, but sales volume remains low. •Determining whether or not increases in state funding will outpace our property tax revenue, causing us to become an LCFF district and whether or not that will be stable over

Stuck In the middle I have been reading with earnest the numerous Letters to the Editor published in your newspaper the past month which either strongly support or strongly oppose Proposition B. Almost all have been sharply worded and accuse the other side of deception, misleading information and lies. My guess is that despite all the tough talk and with about a week to go until the Special Election, Solana Beach citizens either passionately for or passionately against Proposition B make up roughly 10 percent of our population. The other 90 percent of us remain confused, not knowing who to believe, how this issue became so contentious, and why we are spending so much time and attention on this issue. We are stuck in the middle. We have a city government that is, for the most part, very well run. We have a prized city manager in David Ott who oversees a well-oiled machine that is the envy of the region. Our finances are in order and we are more efficient than most communities our size in providing public services. Led by City Council, the past few years have seen a lowered train track, two new pedestrian bridges, the Coastal Rail Trail, a Vons expansion, Fletcher Cove Park, Fletcher Cove Community Center, Overlook Park, the new I-5 interchange, infrastructure investments along South Cedros, sewer upgrades, road repaving and the Highway 101 makeover. Yet after three years, hundreds of meetings and thousands of dollars spent, City Council has been ineffective in forging any reasonable private use policy for the Fletcher Cove Community Center.

Mistakes have been made by both sides along the way. Proposition B only started after then Mayor Mike Nichols publicly stated in a June 2013 council meeting that after two years of negotiations the issue had reached an impasse and would no longer be discussed. Later, when the “compromise policy” was introduced in response to the number of signatures quickly collected in protest to no policy at all, it was widely regarded as something between a joke and an insult. The signature drive only increased in momentum. Had the Proposition B camp only turned in 1,000 rather than 2,100 signatures, the Special Election would have been held in June at a cost of $12,000 rather than in February at a cost of $191,000. I believe the vast majority of Solana Beach residents think the correct private use policy sits somewhere between the two choices we are presented with today. The bolded policy below is a representative example of changes that could be made to the existing policy after the Special Election. If Proposition B wins, City Council could control private party use through the existing permitting process and call for another Special Election in June at a cost of approximately $12,000. If Proposition B loses, City Council could move as soon as the next City Council meeting toward a policy that really is fair and balanced rather than what exists today. Either way, it needs fixing. •Maximum occupancy is 50 guests •Beer and wine are allowed, no hard alcohol. •A private security guard (approved by the city) is required to monitor all rental

CCA’s student’s band to let it ‘Roar’ as opening act in show at SOMA BY KAREN BILLING Musician Javon Shapouri is making some noise with his band Roar Like Me. The Canyon Crest Academy senior and his band recently won the chance to open for an international touring act from Germany named We Butter the Bread With Butter on March 6 at SOMA in San Diego. “We are good at engaging the audience and entertaining during live shows,” said Javon, who plays guitar for the group that includes lead singer Zachary Salazar, Scott De leso on drums and Javon Shapouri on guitar David Johnson on bass. Recently Roar Like Me played the Carlsbad Mara- performance. That night persuaded thon, memorably motivating and “waking up” the SOMA to book the band for athletes as they ran the the March 6 We Butter the course. The band took their Bread With Butter show, motivational duties serious- who promise to bring with ly and rocked so hard they them a large crowd. “SOMA was the best left the race as battered as a venue we’ve played and we marathoner. While they have played had the most people and several shows since forming the best crowd. We actually in early 2013, the group’s had a lot of Marines because first bigger show was held we played the Freedom to on Jan. 9 at SOMA. The Rock show at Camp Pendleband members sold out ton and a lot of the Marines their allocation of tickets became fans and came and then sold out all the ex- down, that was pretty cool,” tras they were given. On the Javon said. Javon was inspired to night of the show, the audience was packed for their start guitar lessons as a mid-

dle-schooler after “long road trips listening to Metallica” and hours logged mockrocking on “Guitar Hero.” He started taking lessons and classes at The Fine Tune Academy in Carlsbad, a contemporary music school in North County run by Fintan Roche. The academy offers lessons, multimedia courses taught by a faculty of successful working musicians, numerous performance opportunities and musicians networking. “The school sets you up, especially the recording arts class if you want to do anything on the production side of music,” Javon said. “Fine Tune is good for any level, from the basics up to the connections in forming the bands.” It was through Fine Tune that Javon was able to meet up with his fellow bandmates that he might not have met otherwise. Javon is the youngest band member, the only one still in high school and while they’re all very different individuals they all shared a love of all things metal. “We all bring something different,” Javon said, noting that he offers not only his talents on the gui-

tar, but his music-writing skills as well. Along with Johnson, he’s helped write many of the group’s original songs. Javon said it’s exciting to be on stage and a real rush. Like the band’s name might suggest, they play pretty serious metal and Salazar does get the chance to scream. Fine Tune’s Roche said Javon is very dedicated to his musical craft but also has other goals as well: He would like to earn his medical degree. Javon said he is a “big science guy” and is he is able to pursue paths in both of his passions with the science curriculum at CCA, as well as taking on the school’s unique rock band class. Javon says he has two ways he can go between music and medicine, but for now he is just enjoying the approving roar of his audience. For tickets to the March 6 show, visit somasandiego. com.

continued from page 12 vented SDUHSD from taking drastic cost-saving measures that you saw in other local districts such as furlough days, salary roll-backs, teacher layoffs, healthcare cuts and shortening the school year. •Preparing for the increased costs of opening a new middle school in 2015. Until we reach the point to where the economy returns to robust growth and our revenue is more predictable, we will try to maintain a holding pattern on our expenditures. Our tradition of cautious budgeting and thoughtful preparation has served our community well and protected our outstanding programs when times have been bad. We will keep that perspective as the picture begins to improve. I will keep you updated as we continue our planning for the next school year.

An Open Letter to Tom Campbell You have been out of town and missed a number of Council meetings. Had you been there, you would have learned that 15 former Solana Beach officials disagree with your conclusion that problem parties caused the closure of the Fletcher Cove Community Center in the late 1990s. It actually was the decrepit condition and specifically a sewer line back-up. Had you been there, you would have learned, that contrary to your statement that current City ordinances prohibit alcohol at all city sites, a 1992 Council policy, in effect until August 2013, allowed champagne, beer and wine at the FCCC. Had you been there, you would have learned the requirement for subsequent elections is in the California State Constitution and since Prop B is simply seven general policy statements, the only possible change that would trigger an election is if Council once again decided to close the FCCC for private events. Had you been there, you would have learned the report Council commissioned from the prestigious municipal law firm, Lounsbery Ferguson Altona & Peak concluded any public safety, parking, noise, and related concerns can be adequately controlled through existing laws and the permitting process. May I remind you it is Council who writes and revises the Municipal Code and the Special Event Permits and no public vote is required. It is sad that a veteran council member would resort to a smokescreen of erroneous statements and distortions to obscure the fact that the heavy-handed restrictions in the current council policy effectively closes the FCCC to your constituents. – Jim Nelson Paid for by Citizens for Solana Beach, Yes on Prop B, which is not controlled by any candidate, P.O.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion February Del Mar Mayor’s Message MAYOR’S VIEW February begins with lots of activity in Del M a r . First, the C i t y Council is looking forward to Lee Haydu receiving your Del Mar Mayor input about the future of City Hall. In January, the City Council directed staff to survey the community to obtain your opinions about a new City Hall. The city mailed postcards to more than 5,000 residents, property owners, businesses and those who have done business with the city (current business license holders). The survey is based on the feedback that was received by residents who attended the recent workshop on City Hall. The survey is important because it asks you to submit your thoughts and ideas on some of the preliminary consensus items from the workshop participants about a new City Hall and Town Hall facility. Please be sure to take the survey by Feb. 15. The survey can be accessed directly on the city’s website at http://www.delmar.ca.us/Pages/CivicCenterPlanning.aspx. The results will be discussed at the Feb. 18 council meeting.

We’re also excited to begin one of the city’s most significant capital improvement projects: the sidewalk, street and drainage project. While this project doesn’t sound sexy, it will provide for significant improvements to fix pedestrian path issues, encourage walkability, address drainage issues and improve streets. The city will install more than 2,000 linear feet of curbs and gutters and more than 12,000 square feet of sidewalks. This project will begin in the Beach Colony area. The city will complete installation of the city’s approved Camino del Mar Streetscape Plan from 22nd Street to the San Dieguito Bridge, filling in missing curbs and gutters, and installing bulb-outs, pedestrian ramps, sidewalks and roadway improvements along Camino del Mar. This work will also accommodate the landscaping of newly created parkway areas in accordance with the city’s Streetscape Plan. While we are excited about this project because it will enhance our community, we understand there will be some temporary inconveniences, such as construction noise, roadway closures/detours and limited parking. The contractor also has a tight schedule to complete all of the work before the start of the San Diego County Fair in June. If you are interested in additional details, I encourage you to attend the upcoming open

house at 5 p.m. Feb. 19 at the Powerhouse Community Center to learn about the project. On another note, we are always looking for interested citizens to volunteer on a city advisory committee or board. The city values the input of its commissions, boards and committees. We have a number of vacancies that we are looking to fill. We currently have vacancies on the Finance Committee, the Parks and Recreation Committee, the San Dieguito Lagoon Committee, the Sustainability Advisory Board, and the Traffic and Parking Advisory Committee. If you are interested, please visit the city’s website to complete an application. Finally, I’m pleased to announce that I will be holding regular office hours at City Hall to be available for residents or business owners to come and talk to me about any issues or concerns. Office hours will generally be held on Wednesdays of the week prior to a City Council meeting. My office hours will begin 3-5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 12. Please call City Hall at 858755-9313 before coming down or to schedule an appointment. Following Feb. 12, the next office hours will be held 3-5 p.m. on Feb. 24 and March 12. I’m so pleased to serve the residents of Del Mar and look forward to working with the City Council to implement your vision!

Let community in on expansion plans for Del Mar Highlands Town Center I read with interest your recent article about the “frustrating parking conditions” at Del Mar Highlands Town Center (DMHTC). All of us have endured the increasingly unpleasant and even dangerous conditions there. What interests me most, however, is that Elizabeth Schriber of Donahue Schriber, DMHTC’s owner and general manager, acknowledged only in part what is known in the community: A massive expansion is in the works. A couple of weeks ago, a storeowner spoke with me about the big, big plans. The parking structure mentioned in your article will be a multi-level monstrosity on the backside of the center. The rumored ingress and egress will be directly across from Solana Pacific Elementary School, threatening the safety of hundreds of our fifth and sixth graders who walk and play in areas directly adjacent. The under-wraps plans seem to also include a far-reaching extension of the food court and the possible relocation or removal of the bookstore and the childcare facility — two of the center’s worthiest businesses. What’s up with Donahue Schriber’s clandestine plans? Could it be that the developer understands the community’s certain outrage over unfettered growth? We community members don’t have a legal right to object. Donahue Schriber will say that its decades-old entitlement does not require public review. But after so many years, what is right and good for Carmel Valley should be a matter of discussion as with any land use issue. Donahue Schriber, be good neighbors and end the secrecy. Tell us what you are doing. Be open and up front about your expansion plans for DMHTC because the rumors are rampant. And let the community weigh in. We want to voice our concerns and shape the character of Carmel Valley. Donahue Schriber, will you do the right thing? Janette Littler Carmel Valley resident

Due diligence on tree issue missing I perused the Jan. 30 article, “Del Mar removes Loren Nancarrow memorial bench,” regarding the brouhaha of the dog-bone shaped bench and how the vigilant city of Del Mar is out to rectify this unholy act, leaving no stone (bench) unturned to do everything according to Hoyle and find the offending person who placed said illegal memorial. Why, there’s a proper process to go through, so let’s see how it really works. I then dissolved into mirthful musings about my recent attempt at justice with an ever-expanding, accidentally sprung up rubber tree in the Del Mar city easement that has completely destroyed my westward ocean view, one I have cherished since 1958 when I built the house. After entreating the neighbor to top the tree at my expense — which was refused — and thinking that it was on their property, I learned it was in Del Mar’s right-of-way easement and even designated for removal. I then asked the city to remove the tree, again, at my expense, (I agreed after being informed that Del Mar coffers were empty for those issues) and was told I needed to also pay $370 to process an application, which would then go before an approval board. The approval board might not approve, because, as I was informed by an employee at City Hall, “We don’t like to destroy trees.” At that point, being 89 years old, I just agreed to disagree and not make waves. I wish the same level of diligence and judicial focus that was showered (dumped?) upon the Nancarrow bench was given to my plea. In about a month, the tree will be in the low-voltage lines. And everyone knows a rubber tree is a weed gone wild. Exponential growth issues. It’s gratifying to know that justice is being served on Nancarrow’s bench. Del Mar is really in good hands. (Sarcasm intended.) Charlotte Quicker Del Mar

Scratch below the Prop B surface The little blue house perched on a Solana Beach bluff top awaits its February fate via a vote of its people. Its glass doors stretch open to the roar of the ocean waves crashing below, welcoming sea mist floating on air. But, despite proponents’ proclamation to “protect your right to use and enjoy your community center,” Prop B isn’t about our town’s little blue house on the hill, at least not anymore. Like a quarter’s edge flaking away a waxy film atop a secret code, scratch below the lustrous Prop B surface. It will reveal that the sole contributor to Prop B, who moved to town about seven years ago, has fueled the initiative with more than $55,000 dollars to undermine our City Council in an effort to secure his uncompromising and inflexible version of a party policy. Our current City Council is the first in more than 15 years to reinstate private parties at the community center. They established an amendable compromise party policy, balancing the needs of the entire community. But the proponents of Prop B refused to allow the city to launch the compromise policy before moving forward with the Prop B initiative. Big- time campaign strategists, lawyers and paid signature gatherers descended upon our town this past summer. Many who signed the petition didn’t know a compromise policy had just been established or that proponents of Prop B would submit their signatures weeks early, deliberately triggering a special election at a cost of $200,000. To say that the Prop B strategy lurked beneath a layer of duplicity is an understatement. I have lived in Solana Beach for almost 11 years and always believed the community center’s doors should stretch open to welcome partygoers’ festivities by-the-sea. But, I will not vote for Prop B as a means to that end; its underhanded and politically nuanced tactics have been a turn-off. Its devil in the detail shackles us with a policy unchangeable except through another costly vote. Proponents say Prop B is about “putting the community back in the community center,” but I can think of myriad other ways to use $255,000 to positively impact our community. Yes, I’ve scratched below the surface, and now I know “B” stands for “bad.” Prop B is bad for our community and therefore I’m voting “No” on Prop B.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

Prop B would remove responsible oversight of the FCCC by any City Council

I have served on the Solana Beach City Council for nearly 20 years. During that time I’ve worked hard to protect the quality of life of residents living in all of our neighborhoods. It is the City Council’s responsibility to minimize negative impacts from all proposed projects — whether the impacts are from an incompatible development or an inappropriate use policy. In the 1990s there were increasingly frequent complaints about noise and public disturbances related to weekend private parties at the Fletcher Cove Community Center (FCCC). Due to the irresponsible acts of some of the party people, the private party use was discontinued many, many years ago. All other community uses at FCCC continued. In the years since the private parties were discontinued, a number of positive changes were made to the area. The parking lot at Fletcher Cove Beach Park and the area surrounding the FCCC were developed into family parks and children’s playgrounds. In October 2011, the council was asked to develop a policy to reinstate weekend private parties. The lack of parking spaces and the history of problems at the FCCC could not be ignored by the City Council. The council’s resulting FCCC rental policy was developed as a compromise to allow residents to rent the facility on weekends, to protect public access to beach parking and to place safeguards on unlimited alcohol use. Why safeguards on alcohol? Because families and children use the adjacent parks and beaches. Current City Ordinance 398 prohibits alcohol consumption at the beach, adjoining parks, bluff areas and public beach access points. Prop B, if passed, will override this ordinance and allow unlimited alcohol use at the FCCC and its outside areas. Prop B, if passed, will remove responsi-

ble oversight of the FCCC by any City Council you elect and return us to the days when there were frequent public disturbances and public safety problems from private parties. Prop B prevents any council from fixing problems, foreseen or unforeseen, that will arise. Instead, costly public votes will be required to make any modifications to ensure public safety and fix any of the problems that result from Prop B. Do not let individuals with deep pockets dictate your city’s policies. According to public documents, one individual, currently the sole contributor, has put upwards of $55,000 into the campaign to support the passage of Prop B. Why? Ego, power, revenge; who knows? The proponents of Prop B claim that all of the weekend parties will be “dignified celebrations.” But what the Prop B proponents do not seem to realize is that there is no definition of a “dignified celebration” in Prop B. Prop B allows private parties of any type. Can you imagine keg beer birthday parties with live music every weekend of the year in your neighborhood? Prop B does not allow the city to determine or exclude what someone may think is a “dignified” or an “undignified” celebration. Contrary to what the proponents say, Prop B will override the city’s existing municipal code by completely rewriting the rules and regulations that apply to the use of the FCCC. The council’s hands will be tied! I encourage you to vote “No” on Prop B to maintain a balanced rental policy that can be modified by any council at any time in order to maintain public safety in our city’s neighborhoods, beaches, parks and facilities. Thomas M. Campbell, CPA Mayor of Solana Beach

SB City Council policy designed to work for all people, not a chosen few In regard to the Solana Beach election and Proposition B: The literature I have received in the mail from the group that calls itself “Citizens for Solana Beach” continues to make me shake my head and feel upset to my stomach. Each claim made by this organization is untruthful and misleading. The most recent flier we received from supporters of Proposition B lists “Opponent Claims” they say are incorrect. “The Truth” is also stated. If you look, the source for each truth is quoted from literature written by the “Yes” people who have created this mess. In other words, the “Yes Group” is quoting its own writings to support its own facts. Don’t let this mislead you. Our City Council has done its best to make a policy that will work for all of the people in our community, not a chosen few as is implied by the fliers sent in the mail by those in favor of the proposition. Compromises always need to be made when work-

ing with a group to make policy, whether it is within your family, your group of friends, an organization or a community. If you don’t like the compromise because it doesn’t fit what you want and you do not get your way, strong arm tactics, having a temper tantrum or starting an initiative that hurts an entire community are not appropriate ways to get change. Please look at the facts and make your own decision. Let me remind you that one member of our community has already contributed $55,000 to force this election and to fund the “Yes on B” campaign. Why? Again, I say, if you follow the money and those who are in support of this proposition, you will find those same people who were in support of the losers in the last City Council election. They didn’t win then. Please don’t let them win now! Pat Coad Solana Beach

We were wrong When the proponents of Proposition B came to our home they claimed that the Fletcher Community Center was not utilized at all and people were not able to rent the facility to have family parties. We signed immediately in favor to correct this “mistake” as we thought the purpose was commendable. We continued our support for some time. After reading the various opinions we decided to visit the center to verify the different statements. We immediately saw how small and limited the building, grounds and parking are. We found that the location is actually being utilized. We also checked the parking situation and found that there is no parking allocated for that facility. We drove around the different streets and did not find enough parking for even 50 people. There are only two spaces labeled “handicap.” We visualized a party of 100, consuming unlimited amounts of alcohol. Even if only a few were overindulged, the small area would intensify the problem. If you still have doubts, go to the center to make an informed decision. It would be informative for 100 “No” voters to assemble at the center 7 p.m. on Saturday (drive your car and park) to demonstrate the need for some limits on use. We have changed our vote to “No” on Proposition B. Jack & Violeta Zimmerman, SB

Who is the philanthropist backing Prop B? The U-T identified Peter House as the philanthropist who was the major contributor to the Fletcher Cove Community Center and who underwrote the creation of Overlook Park south of the community center. In addition to those contributions, he has also given hundreds of thousands of dollars to the city of Solana Beach for various other projects, including Rail Trail enhancements, public art, holiday lighting, and database and infrastructure improvements at City Hall itself, among other gifts. Over the last decade, all those contributions were accepted without complaint from the City Council. Yes, House did contribute to the group who supports “Yes” on Prop B. A large percentage of the money was used to pay for the required legal oversight, as well as the printing of the petitions for the original voter initiative. Citizens need to be reminded that his support only came after the City Council “indefinitely tabled” any further discussion of citizen rental of the center. Council’s very public “decision to avoid a decision” was not acceptable to a large number of citizens. Because the council walked away from its civic responsibility, there was no other recourse but to begin an Initiative pe-

tition. The “Yes” proponents knew that House’s sole interest in the Fletcher Cove Community Center was to make it available for reasonable use by residents of Solana Beach based on a reasonable city permitting process. Isn’t it sad to know that at the core of all the arguments of the “No” group — and now reflected in the city’s use policy as well — is the clear premise that Solana Beach citizens cannot be trusted to rent the community center because citizens (meaning all the rest of us) are basically boorish and irresponsible people interested only in getting drunk, being loud, trashing the neighborhood around the center and creating general havoc on the streets. Unlike the opinion that the “No” folks have of Solana Beach citizens, House deeply believes in the basic common sense, the fundamental decency and the generous good will and neighborliness of our Solana Beach citizens toward each other. Thank you, House, for your abiding respect for the citizens of Solana Beach and for supporting our “Yes” on B efforts. Kathalyn Nelson Solana Beach

Do changes to Prop B really require additional votes by the people? Much has been written about the fact that California State Code mandates that change to an initiative requires another vote by the people. But is this really a problem? With Prop B, there is only one issue that could require a subsequent vote: that is if the Solana Beach City Council were to decide to once again close the facility for private events. Look at the provisions of Prop B. Is there really a person or group who will require a vote to change the 10 p.m. closing time? Or the provision for “nominal fees”? Or the limit to not more than two of three weekend days that the council has the ability to further reduce? Or that noise control and occupancy shall be determined by the existing Solana Beach municipal code and fire marshal limits? Or that behavior that violates ABC, state or city rules and regulations will result in closure of the event and possible fines? It is not realistic to think any of these five issues would prompt a campaign for another vote. Thus, it is only the one issue — total closure for private events — that would prompt the need for another election. Should the City Council propose to close the facility for private events, it would be entirely appropriate to submit this question to a vote of the people. Thus, Prop B is totally reasonable and deserves your “Yes” vote. Rena C. Monge Solana Beach

Wake up, citizens of Solana Beach When Proposition B has been decided by the upcoming election, there will be one of two results. You, the taxpayers of Solana Beach, will be able to rent your Fletcher Cove Community Center for a reception or celebration with reasonable conditions and common-sense safeguards for any unlikely misuse. The city manager will have a permitting process in place to protect both the center’s neighbors and its users. The municipal code and California ABC laws will apply. Enjoyment of the stunning views available will be welcomed. This will only happen if you, the voters, vote “Yes” on Prop B. Or, the center will continue to sit idle every other weekend, and the single usage permitted on alternate weekends will be smothered with restrictions imposed by City Hall’s micro-management in response to political pressure from the center’s neighbors. Your musician and caterer will need city business licenses, and your wine/ champagne glasses (two maximum) will be monitored by a city-required monitor to be sure you don’t take them to the out-

side patio. Nearby parking will be discouraged. City Hall claims to have a policy already, and they sure do: A policy structured to minimize or eliminate any usage. This will continue if you vote “No” on Prop B. Don’t let City Hall and Prop B opponents pull this off. After all, it could be your children and grandchildren’s celebrations that are denied. The opponents are openly catastrophizing and fear mongering. Some of their statements border on hysteria and others are simply untrue (“hundreds of noisy guests every weekend; unlimited alcohol; traffic jams“ and “past shutdowns due to noise problems”). The proponents, many who are well-known and respected residents of the community, have been vilified as party-addicted, hedonistic and uncaring when actually they love Solana Beach and have contributed as much to the beautification and improvement of Solana Beach as anyone else. Vote “Yes” on Prop B! Richard Moore Solana Beach resident since 1964

Prop B would protect our community rights We have been residents of Solana Beach since 1958, and we have watched our community grow into a fine city. We were instrumental in supporting the reconstruction of the Fletcher Cove Community Center. We remember when it was used for private events such as weddings and other gatherings. We are disappointed that the City Council has put severe restrictions on the use of the building. It has been designed so that it can be used for indoor and outdoor events, but the council has adopted a policy that no portion of the patio and lawn area can be set aside for special events. We also feel that the requirement of a security guard and trained bartender is an unneeded expense. We hope that our children and grandchildren will have access to the building for wedding receptions and family gatherings. We also feel that not allowing a DJ or musical band to play is also not a needed restriction. A “Yes” vote for Prop B would protect our community rights. Monte and Janice DeGraw, Solana Beach

Torrey Pines Varsity Rugby Club finishes season undefeated with 41-12 victory over La Costa Canyon BY TIM PICKWELL A physical La Costa Canyon Varsity Rugby team took its first loss of the season, 41-12, Feb. 2 at the hands of a more experienced, tactical Torrey Pines Varsity Club. Torrey Pines trailed for the first time all season, after LCC Flanker Jake Galloway scored over the middle five minutes into the match (kick failed). But, Torrey Pines Head Coach Matty Sandoval patiently used the skills of Senior Fly Half Alec Mills who connected on four consecutive penalty kicks over the next 20 minutes to put Torrey Pines ahead, 12-5. Mills dealt with swirling winds at the Torrey Pines Football Stadium to nail kicks of 25, 32 and 25 yards, along with a point-blank shot between the posts. The Torrey Pines squad is 6-0, and the No. 1 seed from the San Diego County “White Division” in Southern California Youth Rugby. Torrey Pines will host the No. 2 seed, Long Beach Wilson, next week in the first round of the playoffs. LCC (5-1-1) will face Desert Sands (7-0). The Southern California Youth Rugby High School Championships for all divisions (Red, White, Blue) will be held Saturday, Feb. 15, at Cathedral Catholic High School.

Torrey Pines JV Rugby Club knocks undefeated LCC off perch

BY TIM PICKWELL The Southern California High School Youth Rugby League, with 35 teams, is still in its infancy. Recognizing a need to attract players and to teach inexperienced older players about the game, League rules permit “Junior Varsity” squads to play up to five juniors, and even inexperienced seniors. The Torrey Pines JV, on the other hand, carries 21 freshman and sophomores — which led to its first loss in four years at San Pasqual in January, when the shorthanded Falcons played a 10 v. 10 match, and half the Eagles team was juniors. The Falcons barely lost, 2219, but the lesson was learned. The well-stocked Torrey Pines Varsity then sent three reinforcements to round out the JV ranks for the final two matches of the season: juniors Jaun Pawluszek, Gunnar Moseman, and Dylan Fetzer. Would it be enough against undefeated La Costa Canyon on Feb. 2 at Torrey Pines Stadium? LCC plays five juniors, and had whacked San Pasqual by 40 points two weeks earlier. Yes. With Torrey Pines JV’s sophomore leader Brandon Cole scoring and breaking long runs up the middle, the junior additions played key roles in shoring up the JV ranks, and helped the squad defeat LCC, 21-19, in a nail biter. Cole was named “Man-of-the-Match.” Freshman flyhalf Lucas Cruz had three conversions (point-after-attempts) — which turned out to be the difference in the tough match. Cruz was also instrumental with a deceptive run and a “dummy” (i.e. fake) 20 minutes into the match, which allowed him to pitch to Pawluszek for the team’s first try. Moseman helped shore up the wing position on the other side, but it was the play of flanker Dylan Fetzer that impressed Head Coach William “Chief” Leversee. “He was hard-nosed and aggressive all day. Dylan was a real defensive force for us in

We’re glad to have him.” Sophomore center Alec Packer also scored for Torrey Pines, while big (230 LB) sophomore prop Cole Maes-Valley was a big force in the rucks and scrums for the Falcons. The Torrey Pines JV finishes No. 2 in the San Diego White Division to LCC, however. Both teams finished, 5-1, but LCC won on standings points, 26-25. Torrey Pines will Palos Verdes (the No.1 seed from Los Angeles) next week for the first round of the playoffs, while the LCC Junior Varsity will probably face undefeated Desert Sands.

Carmel Del Mar second grade student wins age division at CV 5K Natalie Wang, 7, who is a second grade student at Carmel Del Mar Elementary School knows it takes hard work to get the results you want. She recently won 1st place in the 7-10 age division of the 2nd annual Carmel Valley 5K with a winning time of 26:10. Doing your best doesn’t always equate to winning. But when the result is such that your hard work pays off in the end, success is sweet and rewarding. However, what counts at the end of the day, is that you do your best and that you have fun doing it. For Natalie, she just enjoys being outdoors and exercising. Natalie is the only second grader on the Elite Fitness Running Team whose runners consist of all middle schoolers, mostly from Carmel Valley Middle School. For some, the thought of training with older and bigger kids would be daunting, but not for Natalie. She likes the challenge of training with kids who are more than 2 feet taller and 6 years older because she can learn a lot from them and pushes herself to run as fast as them. By far the tiniest member, she is nonetheless encouraged by her coaches and teammates. She does all the training with the team and takes the workout seriously. She listens to her coaches attentively and applies the knowledge she gains to her races, be it pace, running form or strategy. Natalie’s motto is, “If I can do it, so can you!” Despite her young age, Natalie understands the importance of time management and that good results require focus, hard work, and dedication. After getting out of school, Natalie makes it a priority to get her homework done before heading off to trainings with her various sports. Natalie is also a member of the PAC swim team as well as the San Diego Tri Club youth team and has placed first in her age division in several youth races in 2013. She also enjoys playing the piano, drawing, math and knitting. She wakes up daily early in the morning to practice the piano before going to school. If you ever see a little girl with a pony tail, sprinting around the track with a group of middle schoolers at Carmel Valley Middle school, give Natalie a cheer!

From the NBA to the NCAA, TPHS coach John Olive has rich basketball history BY ROB LEDONNE For those that follow high school hoops, it goes without saying that this season has been an impressive one for the boys at Torrey Pines High School. Their varsity basketball team has only lost (at presstime) four out of a whopping 23 games so far, and year after year the varsity players continue to show off their basketball skills in an efficient manner. Perhaps the reason for this efficiency is longtime head coach John Olive, a staple in the Torrey Pines sports scene since he was hired in April 1997. Prior to that, Olive was a force in both the NBA and college basketball and all of his prior experience is on full display every winter in North County. Olive’s career in basketball began in the Northeast. Born in Philadelphia, Olive’s family later to moved to New Jersey where he first discovered his knack for the game. “As a youngster, I was very tall,” he said. “My father and others just pushed me to go to open gyms to hone my skills practicing.” His first foray into organized basketball didn’t occur until Olive’s freshman year at Bishop Eustace Preparatory School in Pennsauken, New Jersey, and he surprisingly had a tough time at first. “When I first began playing, I was new to the game and just uncoordinated,” he remembers. Olive inevitably learned the ins and outs of basketball throughout his high school years, and as time went on he gained a reputation in New Jersey as a star player. So good, in fact, that he began playing in highcaliber, all-star games during his summers off, and competing against the best players in the United States at that time. Said Olive, “All of a sudden, I was getting recognition I never anticipated. At the time, I was performing at a very high level.” His basketball prowess brought him to Villanova University after college,

Coach John Olive (center). Photo/Anna Scipione which led him to be drafted for the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers — certainly a coup for any player. However, Olive had other plans and decided to play professional basketball in Europe for a year after graduating from Villanova. “Being there was just another chance to work on my game,” he said. “There was nothing else required of me to do than just practice basketball. I loved it; it was a great learning experience.” Once back from Europe, Olive jumped into the NBA again, this time playing for the San Diego Clippers, (the team would later move to LA and is now known as being the home-team of current basketball stars Blake Griffin and Chris Paul). However, during Olive’s stint with the Clippers, a new passion started to develop. He transitioned from player to college scout, and then Olive says he began to reevaluate what he wanted to do: “I realized I wanted to coach to satisfy this competitive part of me I was missing.” As a result, Olive left the Clippers and joined the coaching staff back at Villanova University in April 1985. At the time, Villanova had one of the hottest basketball programs around after winning the NCAA Championship that same month. Olive spent seven successful years at Villanova (he was later inducted into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame), and then five seasons coaching at Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles. He then became head coach for Torrey Pines High School’s basketball program in 1997, a position he’s held ever since. Compared to his years in college and professional basketball, Olive says his stint at Torrey Pines is “a lot less stressful. The only stress I have is the stress I put on myself. Your job and family income isn’t on the line every year. With my career, it’s been helpful knowing what it’s like at the upper levels of basketball, and to have developed players at that high level. To be able to look at a high school player and let him know what he needs to do to get better is valuable.” Olive’s approach at Torrey Pines seems to be working. He was voted Coach of the Year seven times, and the school’s varsity basketball program last won a CIF championship in 2012. After also running successful basketball camps and coaching other teams for various organizations (including USA Basketball), Olive says he couldn’t be happier with the trajectory of his career. “I think the biggest thing is that — thank goodness — I realized at a young age that I should follow a career I enjoyed doing,” he said. “I love coaching.” Torrey Pines’ regular season wraps up later this month.

Canyon Crest Academy Envision to tackle Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’ BY KRISTINA HOUCK Last spring, actor Jason Maddy toured San Diego County middle and high schools as an actor in The Old Globe’s production of William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night.” Now, the local actor and instructor is launching his own version of the comedy Feb. 28 at Canyon Crest Academy in Carmel Valley. “It was fresh in my mind, and I thought it would be a good challenge for the kids that I get to work with,” Maddy said. This is the second time Maddy has served as a guest director at Canyon Crest Academy’s Envision, which offers day classes and afterschool programs for cinema, dance, digital and fine art, instrumental music, theater, and vocal music. He directed one of Shakespeare’s early comedies, “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” last year. “It is interesting to get a chance to work with the students on two different eras of Shakespeare,” said Maddy who is directing several of the same students. “You get to see his growth as a writer. The characters are richer. They’re more realistic. They’re much more human. The text is way more complex.” A tale of unrequited love and hidden identities, “Twelfth Night” has been performed countless times around the world. The earliest recorded performance of the play was in 1602. Still, Maddy’s adaptation is set in the not-too-distant past and performed to modern music.

“Being set in 1972 to the music of Billy Joel and against the backdrop of Vietnam, we were able to give motivation to characters that I think lacks sometimes when it’s just the play,” said Maddy. “It added so much to the characters. I love finding motivation for the characters, especially when working with younger actors. It gives them something to grab onto.” Maddy and Amy Blatt, Envision’s theater coordinator, selected the play as a stark contrast to Envision’s second spring production, “Les Misérables.” In collaboration with the school’s vocal music conservatory, Blatt will direct “Les Misérables,” which will run March 21-29. “I like playing around with Shakespeare,” said Maddy, who has starred in productions in several local theaters, including The Old Globe, North Coast Repertory Theatre and Cygnet Theatre. He has also served as a teaching artist at The Old Globe, North Coast Rep and La Jolla Playhouse. “My goal is to make it relatable to us 400 years later. I’m real excited about it.” “Twelfth Night” will run Feb. 28 through March 8 at Canyon Crest Academy’s Black Box Theater, located at 5951 Village Center Loop Road in Carmel Valley.

BY KRISTINA HOUCK Fourteen hours and 55 minutes. That’s how long it took Daniel Powell to finish the Ironman World Championship Oct. 12 in Kona, Hawaii. Although the Solana Beach triathlete had previously completed the endurance swim, cycle and run event in less than 13 hours, his latest Ironman World Championship was his biggest achievement. “It was two hours off my fastest pace, but it’s all about the experience,” said 54-year-old Powell, who has lived in Solana Beach since 1996. “It was very satisfying. It was my slowest time, but my most rewarding.” Powell competed in his first Half Ironman in 1994 and his first Ironman triathlon — which includes a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile marathon — in 2000. A 15-time Ironman competitor, he finished 12 Ironmans in five years while in his 40s. In 2007, however, he was 17 miles into the marathon portion of an Ironman in South Korea when he found himself in too much pain. He quit. Three months later, he was diagnosed with advanced colorectal cancer. The Oct. 12 competition was a major milestone for Powell. It was his first time returning to the sport since he was diagnosed with cancer, had four surgeries and underwent more than a year of radiation and chemotherapy therapies. “I don’t think I’ll ever compete to be in the top 10 or even the top 100, but just to be part of it was a celebration of life,” Powell said. “In life you get knocked down in many ways — physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually — and with God’s grace and God’s strength, you carry on. “Discouragement is all around. It’s everywhere you look. If I can inspire just one person that may be diagnosed or is depressed or challenged in any way, it’s satisfying. It was my slowest time, but my most satisfying just to be out there participating.” A San Diego native, Powell graduated from Point Loma High School. In 1991, he earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in entrepreneurship from USC Marshall School of Business. As a child, he played baseball. He was on the football team in high school. But Powell didn’t start running until he was in college. In 1980, he competed in his first half marathon at 21 years old. At first, he ran just to compete. Then he became involved with the

Challenged Athletes Foundation and began competing for charity. “I got involved because of the triathlon side of things, but I stayed involved because all the money that was raised was going to people who were in the shadows at the time,” Powell said. Established in 1997, the San Diego-based nonprofit organization helps athletes with disabilities achieve their fitness and sports goals. On Oct. 20, just eight days after finishing the Ironman World Championship, Powell participated in the nonprofit organization’s 20th annual San Diego Triathlon Challenge. Nearly 300 challenged athletes from around the country participated side-by-side with able-bodied athletes in the one-mile swim, 44-mile bike and 10-mile run. “I have very good friendships now with several people that are blind, several people that are in wheelchairs, several people that are missing limbs,” Ironman Daniel Powell — aka “Captain Powell said. “I’ve raced with Challenge.” Courtesy photo them and I’ve raced alongside of them.

Oceanside Museum of Art to unveil second exhibition in Del Mar

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY KRISTINA HOUCK A regional museum is once again bringing art to the community. Oceanside Museum of Art is kicking off its second exhibition Feb. 7 at its new satellite location in Del Mar. The Artist Alliance II exhibition will feature 66 pieces from 64 artists. All artists are members of the museum’s nearly 200-member Artist Alliance. The group regularly meets at OMA for critiquing sessions, panel discussions and other artist-oriented events. “This is going to be an exciting group show,” said OMA Executive Director Daniel Foster. “The show will highlight many of the best artists in our region. It also supports an important artist membership group of our museum and gives them an opportunity to be more visible.” More than 80 artists submitted a total of 184 entries to the show, which is juried by Wendy Wilson, director of the Escondido Arts Partnership. EAP operates the Escondido Municipal Gallery, a 6,000-squarefoot community art space highlighting Southern California artists. “The Artist Alliance group and committee, in partnership with Wendy Wilson, have produced what I think will be a really outstanding quality show of diversity from our talent in this region,” Foster said. The Artist Alliance II exhibition is OMA’s second exhibition in Del Mar.

OMA’s Del Mar satellite site launched Oct. 5 at the Herbert B. Turner Gallery at Southfair. Courtesy photo Located at 704 Pier View Way in Oceanside, OMA has offered art exhibitions and programs since 1995. Originally housed in a 1934 historic Irving Gill building, OMA expanded in 2008 to a 26,000-square-foot, three-story space with five museum galleries. OMA’s Del Mar satellite site launched Oct. 5 at the Herbert B. Turner Gallery at Southfair with a show featuring paintings by the late Turner and photographs by the late H. Montgomery-Drysdale. Both artists lived in Del Mar. About 300 people —

including San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts and then-Del Mar Mayor Terry Sinnott — attended the opening, Foster said. “The opportunity to go into Del Mar and serve the audiences there was extremely attractive to us,” Foster said. “We know there is a need and a very strong, educated, sophisticated, cultural population that is underserved by quality venues bringing forward the best artists of the area, so that’s our driving mission. We’ve received outstanding support from local citizens and leaders.”

The OMA/Herb B. Turner Galleries in Del Mar will present quarterly art exhibitions, receptions, educational programs and events, which will often highlight local and regional artists. The third exhibition is being planned for June, Foster said. “We strongly believe in collaboration as a way of sharing and finding new audiences, and so we’ve been pretty aggressive about collaborative exhibitions and education programming,” said Foster, who joined the museum about a year and a half ago. “We want to reach out into targeted communities that are in our primary area — like Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and Carmel Valley — to bring programming into their local settings and create opportunities to connect for the first time with many art patrons.” The Artist Alliance II exhibition will be on display Feb. 7-May 11. The free opening reception will take place 6-8 p.m. Feb. 7 at the OMA/Herb B. Turner Galleries, 2010 Jimmy Durante Blvd. in Del Mar. OMA is open 10 a.m.4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. General admission is $8. Admission is $5 for seniors and free for students and military. OMA offers free admission on the first Sunday of every month. For more information about OMA, call 760-435-3720 or visit oma-online.org.

CHECK OUT WHAT’S HAPPENING Perspectives Lecture Can You Hear Me Now? Animals Coping with an Increasingly Noisy Ocean Monday, Feb. 10: 7-8 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Many marine animals produce a variety of audible as well as infra- and ultra-sonic sounds for navigating, finding food, mating, and many other vital behaviors.

New Carmel Valley fitness studio pairs indoor cycling with yoga classes BY KAREN BILLING Fitness studio Bonaventour opened in December in Carmel Valley, offering San Diego’s first combination indoor cycling and yoga classes. Its signature class, “Pedal to Nirvana,” is a 40-minute high-intensity cardio ride followed by a 30-minute yoga session designed to balance out the body and calm the mind. The studio is located in Torrey Del Mar Plaza on Carmel Valley Road. Founders Esteban Rodriguez and Eduardo Padilla have been friends since they were children, and cycling and outdoor enthusiasts for just about as long. They grew up in Tijuana and San Diego and are very proud of their bicultural roots. They have always loved nature, sports and competition, but Padilla also got very into yoga and fell in love with the benefits of what it does for the body. Pairing cycling with yoga seemed to them a unique and winning combination. “It started with a crazy idea. We love REI (Recreational Equipment Inc.) and the idea was to make an REI gym with indoor cycling and yoga and mountain climbing,” Rodriguez said. “We decided to start with 10 bikes and yoga.” The bikes used in the studio are “Real Ryders,” which tilt and lean like a real cycle, creating the experience of being out on the road and engaging muscles unlike any other indoor cycle. Bonaventour is only the second studio in San Diego to offer them.

New fitness studio Bonaventour. Courtesy photos “As a cyclist, I can’t be on a regular indoor cycle because it just doesn’t feel real,” Rodriguez said. “Nothing beats being outside but this at least mimics that and gives you the feeling of freedom of movement.” The studio’s look is classic and clean, with a separate cycling area and yoga studio stocked with mats, blocks and straps. A small retail area has workout attire and healthy nibbles. Rodriguez likes the boutique-gym feel, a place that is unintimidating to come to and a place small enough where they can accommodate their customers’ varying fitness goals. Rodriguez and Padilla don’t teach

any of the classes, instead they opted to hire “the best of the best” cycling and yoga instructors. Their schedule so far includes Pedal to Nirvana combination classes, as well as a 60-minute cycling class and a 60-minute yoga class. Rodriguez aims to build the class offerings around what the community wants as far as times and ability levels so they encourage input from their riders and yogis. The first class is free and all pricing information and class sign-ups are available on bonaventour.com. The studio is at 13857 Carmel Valley Road, San Diego, 92130, and can be contacted at (858) 365-7416.

Del Mar’s ‘Mother Paige’ makes news with her hand-painted icons BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT Despite the more casual, contemporary use of the word “icon,” icons are actually part of an ancient tradition of Christian art, inspirational paintings of sacred subjects that may date back to the time of the apostles, when St. Luke was said to have painted images of the Virgin Mary. Icons were particularly popular during the Byzantine Empire, when frescoes flourished, and the art of iconography spread across Europe to Russia. These days, icons are being painted locally by the Rev. Paige Blair, rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Del Mar. Her works recently gained wider attention when several were chosen as cover art for “Forward Day by Day,” a national quarterly published by the Episcopal Church. How did Blair, who was born on March Air Force Base in Riverside and dreamed of being the country’s first woman fighter pilot, become “Mother Paige,” a parish priest with a talent for iconography? “I was 20 years old, studying Japanese and pre-

Photo/Lonnie Burstein Hewitt paring for a career in the foreign service, when God got my attention,” she said. “I was ordained a deacon in 1996 and became a priest the next year. In my church in Massachusetts, I had a parishioner who was studying iconography with a wonderful teacher, Rebecca Taylor. In 1999, I took a workshop

with her and got hooked.” Blair continued taking workshops, adding beading to some of the pieces she created. In 2002, Taylor invited her to co-teach a workshop in icon writing. “‘Writing an icon’ is the traditional language used to describe the creation of an icon, which is, essentially,

symbolic of the Word of God,” Blair explained. It’s a devotional act, a meditation; she has written two pamphlets about the spiritual practice of writing icons, which “Forward Day by Day” will publish, as companions to her cover pieces. Blair said that the process, which every iconographer has followed since St. Luke, consists of tracing an existing painting onto a smooth, white, gesso board. “The darkest colors get

‘Resurrection’ is one of four icons chosen as cover art for a national Episcopal magazine.

consistency.” Blair said writing icons is not quite as difficult as it sounds. “It’s a very forgiving process, in all ways,” she said, with a smile. “You can basically fix all errors — patch the gold, cover up paint that goes awry. There are ways to heal any booboo that affects the icon, or the iconographer. I’ve made about every mistake that can be made, so I’ve learned how to correct them.” Every August, at St. Peter’s, she teaches a five-day icon-writing workshop. Enrollment is open to all, but limited to 10. Year-round, despite the demands of her day job as priest of a parish with close to 1,000 members (and activities such as yoga, running, surfing, and walking her two dogs), Mother Paige still finds time for her icons. “Sometimes an icon just calls to me, and I have to make time for it,” she said. The walls of her welcoming office are covered with icons, which visitors, not surprisingly, seem to enjoy. To learn more about Blair, see her blog www. transformationiconography. blogspot.com, or contact her at pblair@stpetersdelmar.net.

Horizon Prep in Rancho Santa Fe brings Christ-centered classical education to San Diego BY KRISTINA HOUCK Lauren Bothe didn’t feel like she could freely express herself in public school. Now an eighth grader at Horizon Prep in Rancho Santa Fe, Lauren is able to share her faith with others. “I wasn’t able to talk about my Christian faith. I wasn’t able to pray with the students or the teachers,” said Lauren, 13, who transferred to Horizon Prep when she was in fifth grade. “I can do that here.” Founded in 2000, Horizon Prep is an extension of Horizon Christian Fellowship church in Rancho Santa Fe. “All my super close friends go there,” said Lauren, whose family has attended Horizon Christian Fellowship since she was 2 years old. “We’ve just grown up in the church. Having the transition from the church to the school and doing both has been nice.” The private Christian school serves nearly 500 preschool through high school students. Horizon Prep welcomed freshmen to its campus this fall and plans to add a grade level each year through 12th grade. As a Christ-centered school, Horizon Prep integrates a Christian worldview into all subjects. “It helps you not only with the concepts of what you’re learning, but being able to incorporate it with everything you do helps you realize that God is everywhere,” said Lauren, who is currently enrolled in English, algebra, science, history, logic, Bible, Spanish, Latin and drama courses. “God is in history and English — even math. He is everywhere and everything we do is with Him.” In addition to offering a Christ-centered education, Horizon Prep follows a classical teaching model, focusing on grammar for elementary students, logic for middle school students and rhetoric for high school students.

school that strives for academic excellence. “I have never seen a Christian school where love for Christ has been united with a true commitment to academic excellence like at Horizon Prep,” said Maiocca, who has worked as a teacher in classical Christian education for six years. “In a lot of Christian schools, it tends to be either or — a high focus on academics but the love for the Lord seems to wax cold, or a great love for the Lord but not really a commitment to academic excellence. This school, I think, is unique. I see both very, very explicitly.” Maiocca, who teaches English, history and Bible classes, explained the differences between classical education and traditional education by comparing television shows “Iron Chef” to “Chopped.” “If you watch the show “Chopped,” many chefs don’t know what to do with the food. They’re simply stumped. A lot of it is because they’ve never been classically trained. They’ve learned how to make dishes. In other words, they’ve learned the subject, but they’ve truly never learned the art of learning,” Maiocca said. “But if you watch ‘Iron Chef,’ it doesn’t matter what the secret ingredient is. They know immediately what to do with it. That’s because those chefs have been classically trained. They simply haven’t been taught how to make a dish, they’ve been taught the grammar, the logic and the rhetoric of the culinary world. “We’re really trying to teach students the tools of learning, not simply just subjects.” Located at 6365 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe, Horizon Prep is hosting Open House events at 5 p.m. on Feb. 6, and at 9 a.m. on March 6 and April 10. An Open House at 9 a.m. on May 8 will focus on early education. For more information about Horizon Prep, call 858-7565599 or visit www.horizonprep.org.

Charity bake sale is part of local youth’s year of giving back Seven-year-old Sammy Nelson (above) held a charity bake sale Feb. 1 in front of Jimbo’s at the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. Her bake sale supported the Emilio Nares Foundation (www.enfhope.org), which provides the families of children battling cancer with “information and life-enhancing programs and support.” The fundraising effort was one of several of Sammy’s “year of good deeds.” Every year the Nelsons ask their children to do a number of good deeds to reflect the age they are turning that year. Other ways Sammy has given back as part of her seventh birthday philanthropic activities include: donating money to the Philippine typhoon victims; making a Thanksgiving basket for a local senior center; feeding the homeless downtown; and helping to purchase coffee for military personnel overseas.

Much will be new in this Shakepeare ‘Tale’ at Old Globe BY DIANA SAENGER The Old Globe’s artistic director, Barry Edelstein, will make his Old Globe directorial debut this month with Shakespeare’s mesmerizing “The Winter’s Tale.� The show will also be the first time in more than a decade that a Shakespearean production will take the Globe’s indoor stage. Edelstein, a stage director, producer, author, educator and recognized authority on the works of Shakespeare in the United States, is very fond of this particular Shakespeare play. “I love being around ‘The Winter’s Tale’ because it’s so magical and moving,� Edelstein said. “And being here for a while now, I get a sense the community is really interested in getting a look at Shakespeare under artificial light.� Due to its mix of humor and drama, “The Winter’s Tale� is labeled one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays.� It centers on the King of Sicily, Leontes, suspected affair between his wife, Hermione, and his best friend, Polixenes, the King of Bohemia. Could Leontes be so cruel as to imprison his pregnant wife and order the baby killed? Luckily, there’s much comic relief in the acts that follow this dramatic cliffhanger. “ ‘The Winter’s Tale’ has been my favorite Shakespeare play for a long time,� Edelstein said. “It’s redemptive and a magical ending is

Also, it has so many things I love about Shakespeare — there’s the tragic serious drama, then the second act is a light, beguiling and funny comedy as things come together and bring us to a third place that’s different than anything else he wrote.� This production of “The Winter’s Tale� has a new musical score by composer Michael Torke, who’s scored everything from plays and operas to music for the Olympics. “I directed this play before in New York and commissioned Mi-

chael to write the piano score for it then,� Edelstein said. “I asked him to come back and develop it, and he made some changes. He’s a big deal in the world of classical music. It’s fun to welcome him to the Globe and deal with Shakespeare music from such an unusual perspective because it’s not conventional, theatrical, incidental music; it’s much more complex and rich.� The cast for the play includes a mix of seasoned Globe resident artists, some new actors to the Globe and actors from the Old

Old Globe artistic director Barry Edelstein Photo/Joseph Moran Globe/USD M.F.A program. Noted stage and screen actor Billy Campbell (TV’s “Killing Lincoln� and SyFy’s “Helix�) returns to the Globe following his previous appearances in “Much Ado About Nothing� and “The Comedy of Errors.� Taking a production usually presented in an outdoor venue to an indoor stage could have been a problem for some companies, but not the Globe, Edelstein said. “As a director, I’ve always been deeply involved and a collaborator with my design team,� he said. “The Globe stage is not quite

as big as the outdoor festival stage, but it’s enormous enough to do all those big musicals we do indoors. Wilson Chin’s design is going to look very handsome. He’s done an imaginative job creating a sparse and very clever design.� Edelstein said he looks forward to bringing Globe Shakespeare patrons from the outdoors inside for several reasons. “This is a rarely produced play, so it’s wonderful opportunity to see a production that’s not offered as often as ‘Midsummer’s Night Dream’ or ‘Macbeth.’ “Those who have an interest in exploring all parts of the Shakespeare cannon should see it. Also, this is my first show as artistic director and I know people want to get to know me. The production really presents my taste and sense of theater and humor as an artist in a comprehensive way. I’m hoping those who are curious about the new guy will come check me out.�

Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony held for five Boy Scouts from Solana Beach’s Troop 782 Solana Beach Boy Scout Troop 782 celebrated an Eagle Court of Honor Feb. 1 at Solana Beach Presbyterian Church for five of its most recent Eagle Scouts: Michael Broussalian, Ryan Murphy, Jackson Backer, Charles Molitor, and Robert Oliver Roberts. Parents, grandparents, siblings, relatives, local officials, fellow scouts, and friends of the young men attended the ceremony. One of the most important steps to becoming an Eagle Scout is the development, preparation, and execution of an “Eagle Project,” a service- and leadership-oriented project that benefits the community, a religious institution, or a school. Each Scout completes a detailed proposal that must be approved by the troop, unit leader and committee, and district council before he begins. During all phases of the project, the Scout must

maintain a meticulously organized binder that demonstrates his attention to all aspects of the project from inception to completion. Below is information about the Scouts and their Eagle projects:

Jackson Backer constructed a large kiosk near the entrance of the upper portion of San Dieguito County Park in June 2013. The structure contains a large, covered bulletin board for park rangers to post park in-

Lisa, Charles and Joseph Molitor formation and announcements. It includes a large, covered bench overlooking a beautiful vista of Rancho Santa Fe. Michael Broussalian built and installed a kiosk for Goodan Ranch in Sycamore Canyon in June 2013. The structure contains a large, covered bulletin board for park rangers to post park information and announcements. Charles Molitor built and installed a kiosk for the entrance of Lower San Dieguito Park. The project was completed in July 2013. Ryan Murphy constructed and installed a new sign for the San Dieguito River Park headquarters, and planted a garden of native plants surrounding the sign. The project was completed in November 2013. Robert Roberts renovated the exterior landscaping and added new planters and plants at the San Diego Rescue Mission. The project was completed in June 2013. Reaching this milestone represents the successful achievement of many years of dedicated effort and commitment that started when a youth becomes a Boy Scout, usually at age 11. Less than 7 percent of all Boy Scouts reach the Eagle Rank, which is the highest rank advancement in the organization. Photos/Jon Clark; For photos online, visit www.delmartimes.net.

Red Nose Run raises $20,000 to benefit The Semper Fi Fund and Fresh Start Surgical Gifts An atmosphere of celebration filled the Poseidon Restaurant Jan. 22 as The Del Mar Low and Slow Running Club presented checks to The Semper Fi Fund and Fresh Start Surgical Gifts. “What better place to present the checks than at the Poseidon where our annual holiday Red Nose Run takes place,� said Low and Slow member Rob Lawson. The Red Nose Run’s 22nd annual December fundraiser generated $20,000 to benefit the two local charities. Representatives Kerry-Ann Ellington from Semper Fi and Fresh Start’s Amanda Thompson were present to accept the checks. “Thank you to the Low and Slow Running Club and all participants, sponsors and local merchants for their generous support. The great success in raising funds and increased awareness of the these two special charities is beyond description, not to mention the great time enjoyed by all,� Ellington said. Thompson added, “We at Fresh Start are deeply appreciative of the continuing sup-

port by the Low and Slow Running Club. The monetary contribution we receive provides for kids in desperate need of facial reconstruction. This happy event invites all ages and levels of ability to give back at a time of year when people are filled with the holiday spirit.� Poseidon manager Stephan Turonbarrere was beaming when the guests toasted him and his gracious staff for Poseidon’s outstanding support and success hosting the after-run party on Poseidon’s oceanfront patio. With a twinkle in his eye, founder of the Red Nose Run, Al Bernotas, said it best, “We could not begin to achieve the success of this special holiday run without the contributions from our local communities. The cause is great, matched only by the generous hearts that participate on all levels to improve the lives of little kids, and support those who have sacrificed so much.� For more information, visit www.semperfifund.org, www.freshstart.org or http:// rednoserun.info/

Del Mar Community Connections is once again offering its popular Brain Fitness programs starting March 4. The programs are designed to improve thinking, understanding and memory. It was developed by Posit Science from work performed at the University of California at San Francisco. It includes a series of scientifically designed exercises that are done on a computer in a class room. Computer skills are not required. The exercises are done for one hour three times a week. The program is self-paced and adjusts to each individual’s abilities and needs. An advanced “refresher� program for those who have already taken the basic brain fitness program is also available. The Brain HQ program is a self-defined program that lets the participant select from 25 different exercises based on what functions of the brain the participant wants to improve. After an initial set of exercises have been completed, the participants choose their own. An important feature of the advanced program is that, after the initial phase, the participants can do the exercises on their own computer at home. More than 60 participants have taken the Brain Fitness courses and nearly all report improved brain performance, from the abili-

ty to remember better, to focus better and to process information faster. In general, it makes one feel more alert. For those interested in participating, orientation meetings will be held on the following dates and times: Basic Brian Fitness – Thursday, Feb. 20, at 2 p.m. at the Del Mar Community Building, 225 9th St., Del Mar. Advanced Brain HQ – Wednesday, Feb. 26, at 2 p.m. in the DMCC Computer Lab, 225 9th St. Del Mar. Both programs start on Tuesday, March 4, at the DMCC Computer Lab on 9th St. The program is available at no charge for those living in the 92014 zip code; $75 for all others (proof of residency required). For more information and to sign up for either program, call DMCC at 858-7927565 or email dmcc@dmcc.cc

Almond joy: Nutty aphrodisiac for Valentine’s Day The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Tying first place on the A-(phrodisiac) List, knocking the lowly oyster (loaded with mercury, cadmium and PCB’s) out of the running, and neck-and-neck with bittersweet chocolate is the divine, heart-healthy, nutrientdense almond. Here are this beaut’s sexy little secrets to help revv up your sweetie’s engine for Valentine’s Day and always. Kudos to the seductive little seed with its sensual shape and heady aroma that has been arousing passion since Biblical times, being one of the earliest cultivated foods. Samson pursued Delilah with almond branches, and although he picked the

wrong girl, this ill-fated romance did not tarnish almonds’ reputation as a love charm or symbol. Ancient Romans still showered newlyweds with the elliptical nut as a token of fertility. The aromatic almond has been praised by scribes throughout history, including Nefzawi, the 13th century author of “The Perfumed Garden of Sensual Delight,” who prescribed 20 almonds and 100 grains of pine tree blended with a viscous glassful of honey as a bedtime love tonic to boost sexual energy. Almond’s aphrodisiac appeal stems from the mother lode of heart-protective, fertility enhancing Vitamin E and zinc, along with phosphorous and dietary fiber for a euphoric sense of well-being. As an added boon, almonds contain the monounsaturated “friendly” fats, phytonutrients like magnesium and calcium for strong bones, the same anti-inflammatory resveratrol found in red wine, antioxidant, cancer-preventive alpha-tocopherol, and provide a protein and Vitamin B powerhouse to endow one with an oomph of vitality on V-Day. This super food has also been found to put the skids on hangover symptoms if a handful is eaten before im-

bibing (and that’s always a plus for passion). For your special honey on Feb. 14 whip up some delightful almond dishes throughout the day. • For a flirtatious breakfast or brunch, serve a frothy almond mango smoothie or frozen mocha almond shake, almond ginger pear scones, honey almond cream with fresh berries or almond lavender crème brûlée French toast. • For a playful lunch, make heart-shaped almond butter and jelly sandwiches, an almond jade shrimp stir fry, Greek spinach and almond salad or a bowl of refreshing muscatel grape and almond gazpacho. • Plan a seductive dinner with almond-encrusted baked salmon and a side of Portobello mushrooms stuffed with toasted almonds, quinoa and pomegranate seeds, or pounded chicken breasts rolled and filled with ground almonds, lemon zest and mascarpone cheese. •Snack on them straight up, raw or roasted, sweet or savory dressed with sun-dried tomatoes and Italian herbs, cumin and lime, honey glazed with sea salt or au natural. • Dip warm pita bread

PAGE B21

into exotic almond dukkah (a Moroccan blend of nuts, herbs and spices). • For blissful desserts, tease the palate with heart-healthy dark chocolate almond brownies with 60 percent or more cocoa content, amaretto and roasted almond cheesecake or cranberry almond biscotti with a nice dollop of almond gelato.

Chocolate Almond Joy Butter Ingredients 2 cups raw almonds 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate 1 teaspoon honey (clover, blossom, your choice) A few drops of coconut extract 1/4 teaspoon sea salt Method: Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Spread almonds on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake until toasted, about 10 minutes. Let cool. In a food processor, grind the chocolate into tiny pieces. Add the nuts and sea salt, and continue processing until desired smoothness is reached. Blend in honey and flavorings. For chunky, toss in a handful of nuts at the end. Cook’s tip – Nut butters get hard when refrigerated, so soften at room temperature before eating. —For additional Chinese New Year recipes, e-mail kitchenshrink@san.rr.com
