Heated local races culminate in failed propositions, close wins

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Candidates and their supporters were celebrating victories on Nov. 7, with most wins looking certain and a few extremely close, with about 475,000 absentee and provisional ballots left to be tallied countywide as of press time for this newspaper. Soon after the polls closed, the Secretary of State’s office reported that about 52.6 percent of the county’s some 1.6 million voters cast ballots in the Nov. 6 elections — a much lower turnout than the 75 percent predicted by the registrar of
voters. But maybe the elections in Carmel Valley, Del Mar and Solana Beach, which were said to be some of the most heated political battles in the history of the communities, upped the turnout numbers at least for those areas. For example, close to 2,000 votes were already tallied on Del Mar’s Prop J, a controversial downtown revitalization plan for the city of 4,000, and that’s not including the more than 1,000 Del Mar residents who are registered as permanent absentee voters and may
have voted that way. The San Diego County Registrar of Voters said its staff is working day and night to get all ballots counted as soon as possible. There is a 28-day deadline to verify the votes, but representatives said they hope to get the results out sooner. Here’s a round-up of elections affecting the local areas of Del Mar, Solana Beach and Carmel Valley: PROP J As of press time, 1,136 votes (or 58.2 percent) had been recorded against and 816 (or 41.8 percent)

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Every city in San Diego County has an approved Local Coastal Program Land Use Plan (LUP) to guide future development — that is, except for Solana Beach. Despite submitting six different drafts to the California Coastal Commission (CCC), the city’s LUP is still in limbo mainly due to clashes between land owners and envi-
ronmentalists, and until Nov. 26 at 1 p.m., the public has a chance to provide input regarding the current revision on the table. The draft and public comments will be up for discussion at a City Council hearing in early December, in which the council will vote on what to send the CCC for approval. “It’s time for people to read it and understand it and if they have concerns put it in writing for the record,” said Jon Corn, an attorney representing the Beach and Bluff Conservancy (BBC) and CondoSee COASTAL, Page 6
votes for the proposition, which would create new development standards for Del Mar — including roundabout traffic circles and raised building height limits. More than 90 public meetings and millions of dollars went into the expansive, 500-page Village Specific Plan, which those on all sides of the debate knew would present an uphill battle.

Results on school bonds close BY KAREN BILLING At press time for this newspaper on Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 7, both local school district bond propositions had not reached the 55 percent voter approval needed to pass in the Nov. 6 election, by very slim margins. General obligation bonds require 55 percent of the vote to pass — the San Dieguito Union School District’s Prop AA received 54.47 percent of the vote, while the Del Mar Union School District’s Prop CC received 53.20 percent of the vote. Additionally, the Miracosta Community College’s bond Prop EE was also short of the needed votes, just shy of 55 percent with 54 percent voting “Yes.” However absentee and provisional ballots had yet to be tallied. “As it stands this morning [Nov. 7], Proposition AA has 54.4 [percent] of the affirmative vote, .6 percent, or
290 votes, short of the necessary threshold to pass,” said Ken Noah, superintendent of the San Dieguito Union High School District. “It is our understanding that there are still approximately 475,000 absentee and provisional ballots to tally in the county. Of that total, we anticipate that there are approximately 20,000 additional votes to count in the San Dieguito Union High School District. We are hopeful that the final results will be available within the week.” Suzanne Hall, co-chair of the Committee for Quality Del Mar Schools, also said there may be a chance that Prop CC will pass once the absentee and provisional ballots are counted. If the bond fails to reach the 55 percent approval needed, Hall said that although the majority of voters did support the See BONDS Page 6
New EMS contract could impact ambulance service in local areas BY CLAIRE HARLIN Having emergency ambulance service is a standard of living that many may pay little attention to unless it’s not up to par, and in the case of County Service Area 17 (CSA 17), which includes Del Mar, Del Mar Heights, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe and Encinitas, 10-minute response time standards have been consistently met with shining colors over the years and residents have been content. But just as you may not have been aware you were part of a special emergency medical service (EMS) district, you may not know
that the county actually outsources EMS, just as is does with many other services, and counties nationwide are increasingly contracting with third-party providers to avoid high pension costs and other expenses. Rural Metro Corporation has provided EMS to both CSA 17 and the City of San Diego for 12 years, however, that could change next spring, as the county is currently re-contracting for EMS service — and a change in provider could greatly impact CSA 17, whose cities have very different demographics and needs.

‘First-cut’ in possible county-22nd Motorist who struck and killed DAA partnership expected in January bicyclist pleads guilty to hit and run
BY JOE TASH County supervisors unanimously agreed Oct. 31 to study the possibility of the county taking on a leadership role at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, but no one knows yet what such a partnership might look like, or the financial impacts of a new model for running the state-owned property. Details should become clearer over the next few months, as county staff and elected officials talk to a variety of people around the county with an interest in the fairgrounds, and also examine the facility’s books to determine its financial health. In their 5-0 motion, supervisors directed the county’s chief administrative officer to study a potential partnership between the county and the 22nd District Agricultural Association — the entity that now runs the fairgrounds for the state — to share operational oversight of the 340-acre property at the mouth of the San Dieguito River. Along with the San Diego County Fair and an annual horse racing meet, the fairgrounds hosts hundreds of events each year from weddings to roller derby matches to home and garden shows. Supervisor Ron Roberts, who brought the issue before the board with Supervisor Greg Cox, said he expects a report to come back to the board in January, but even then it will not likely be a final agreement, but a “first cut” in examining the issues of a county-22nd DAA partnership. “Let’s make sure there’s not a poison pill to prevent us from getting deeper in the discussions,” Roberts said. One key concern is whether the county would be taking on any financial liabilities, such as unpaid bills, through an agreement
with the fairgrounds, Roberts said. His concern was echoed by other supervisors at last week’s meeting. But the board did seem supportive of the general idea of the county joining forces with the fairgrounds. “I’m cautiously optimistic about this proposal. In my opinion, it could be very helpful to the 22nd DAA and operations there to have some county guidance,” said Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, whose 3rd District includes the fairgrounds. “I just think we ought to be a part of it. We ought to have a voice there,” said Supervisor Bill Horn. Adam Day, president of the 22nd DAA board, initiated the discussion in an Oct. 12 letter to Roberts. “As you may know Governor Brown is encouraging state District Agricultural Associations to explore options for governance changes with the goal of bringing the oversight of DAA’s to a local level and providing more transparency and involvement to the communities they serve,” Day wrote. In an interview, Day said he has been in discussions with the governor’s office for the past several months about such a partnership. Various models have been considered, but he said it would be premature to discuss them publicly. However, he said the goals of a county22nd DAA partnership would include more local control of the fairgrounds, increased transparency in its operations, protection of workers at the fairgrounds, who are state employees, and flexibility and freedom from state bureaucracy and red tape. Currently, the 22nd DAA board is appointed by the See PARTNERSHIP, page 19
BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A motorist who struck a bicyclist and left him to die along a Rancho Santa Fe Road pleaded guilty Nov. 1 to a felony charge of hit-and-run causing death. Jin Hyuk Byun, 19, faces probation on the low end and four years in prison on the high end of the sentencing scale when he returns to the Vista courthouse on Jan. 3. According to court testimony, Byun was behind the wheel of a black 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche that struck 18-year-old Angel Bojorquez, a grocery clerk at an Albertsons supermarket in Del Mar, sometime after 1 a.m. on July 6. Police and California Highway Patrol officers testified at a preliminary hearing last month that Byun was sweating when authorities showed up at his home to question him about the damaged SUV. Bojorquez, who lived in Escondido with an older brother and his aunt and uncle, was found dead in shrubs along a curvy section of Via De La Valle. He was riding without a light on his bicycle when he was struck, according to authorities. Deputy District Attorney Aimee McLeod said Byun knew that he had run into a person, noting “the amount of distance on that roadway that he would have been able to see a person in a reflective vest, that the location that the body struck the hood of the truck up above the headlight assembly, the fact that he pulled over to an area where no one would be able to see him, that he removed the tire, then drove home for five miles and hid the vehicle inside the garage. “Those are the reasons he knew he hit a person and failed to stop or do anything’’ she said after the hearing. Steve Bojorquez said he and his brother worked at the same store and often rode to work together. That Friday, however, Angel rode to work by himself. He had only ridden the 20 miles or so from work to home a few times, his sibling said. The victim was riding north near Paseo Delicias when a dark-colored SUV drifted onto the shoulder and struck him, according to CHP Officer Chris Parent. When questioned about damage to his SUV, Byun told investigators his Avalanche was garaged and had not been driven recently because of electrical problems, according to the CHP. CHP Officer Steven Jio testified that Byun started sobbing when he was questioned and eventually told the arresting officer what happened. “He thought he struck a mailbox, maybe a deer, maybe a dog, he wasn’t sure,’’ Jio testified. Jio said the Byun told him he reached to adjust the radio, heard a loud “clink” and noticed he had a flat tire.

RACES continued from page 1 with 18.9 percent of votes in the race for Solana Beach City Council. She will retain her seat and be joined by new council members David Zito, a software architect, and Peter Zahn, a business attorney. Zito earned 18.5 percent and Zahn received 18 percent of the vote. Trailing Zahn by about 200 votes was research scientist Vickie Driver, who got 16 percent of the vote. Daniel Powel and Paul Frankel both earned about 14 percent. “I’m very happy,” said Heebner. “I ran a clean campaign, focusing on the issues and my vision for our city. I’m grateful to the voters of Solana Beach and look forward to getting back to work for them.” SAN DIEGUITO UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD Incumbents Joyce Dalessandro (31.30 percent) and Beth Hergesheimer (29.58 percent) were re-elected to the San Dieguito Union High School District board. SOLANA BEACH SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD Incumbent Richard Leib (38.93 percent) and Julie Union (36.52 percent) were elected to the Solana Beach School Board. MEDICAL MARIJUANA REGULATION Both Del Mar and Solana
Beach voters rejected a medical marijuana ordinance that made it to the ballot through the petitioning efforts of a non-profit group advocating for safe and open access to medical cannabis. On the ballot as Prop H in Del Mar and Prop W in Solana Beach, the ordinance would have both allowed dispensaries and let the cities place regulations and taxes on them. Almost identical to the turnout in Del Mar’s Prop J measure, 814 votes (43.6 percent) tallied so far from Del Mar supported Prop H and 1,053 (56.4 percent) rejected it. Solana Beach voters had about 62 percent in favor and 37 percent against Prop W. The measure also made it to ballots through the same initiative in Lemon Grove and Imperial Beach, and it was killed in both cities. Lemon Grove had 62 percent against and 38 percent for the ordinance, and it failed 59 to 40 percent in Imperial Beach. COUNTY SUPERVISOR It’s been 18 years since San Diego County has seen a new face on the Board of Supervisors, and 20 years for District 3. Election results as of press time indicated that Solana Beach Deputy Mayor Dave Roberts — with 50.7 percent of the vote —has been chosen by the people to be that new face. His op-
ponent, Carmel Valley resident Steve Danon, received 49.3 percent, a difference of about 1,900 votes. Although Roberts still awaited validation from the registrar of voters on Nov. 7, he and about 20 supports gathered at his Solana Beach headquarters to hold signs, celebrate and stand in the street waving with excitement at passing cars. The father of five attributed his victory to being “a real person who has the same struggles just like the everyone else.” Not only is Roberts the first gay man to serve on the board, but he’ll also be the only Democratic supervisor. But Roberts doesn’t care about party affiliation, he said. “I just care about being passionate about making San Diego a great place for all people.” DISTRICT 1 CITY COUNCIL It appeared on Nov. 7 that incumbent District 1 City Councilwoman Sherri Lightner would retain her seat in the northwestern part of San Diego (which includes Del Mar Heights and Carmel Valley) by defeating businessman and philanthropist Ray Ellis. Lightner earned 54 percent of the vote and Ellis earned 46 percent. “I always said I would run on my record and that’s what I did. The people of Dis-
Dave Roberts stands with supporters at a Nov. 7 news conference at his Solana Beach campaign headquarters. trict 1 responded to my message because they know how hard I’ve worked to bring their voices to City Hall,” said Lightner in a statement. “They know I’ve listened to them and worked tirelessly to get San Diego back on track financially while addressing important neighborhood issues from preserving open space to fixing our streets.” Lightner said she was grateful for the strong grassroots effort she had during her campaign, thanking all of her volunteers and supporters. “I look forward to continuing to serve the communities of District 1 and work
on citywide issues like creating a sustainable and affordable water supply and crafting a long-term vision for San Diego’s economy that produces good-paying middle class jobs,” Lightner said. “I can’t wait for the next four years.” US REP. 52nd DISTRICT Democratic Port Commissioner Scott Peters appeared to have unseated Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Solana Beach, in the 52nd District, but with less than 700 votes separating the two, there was some uncertainty at press time about whether absentee ballots might bring forth a different victor.
8 5 8 - 720-TPAH
Bilbray earned 49.8 percent of the vote and Peters was winning with 50.1 percent. Strategists believed Peters had a strong chance of unseating Bilbray, after his district was moved during redistricting into unfamiliar inland territory. SAN DIEGO MAYOR Bob Filner led by about 10,000 votes, with 51.5 percent, to Carl DeMaio’s 48.5 percent in the race for City of San Diego Mayor on Nov. 7. Although the results had not been finalized pending absentee ballots, DeMaio voluntarily sent Filner to the mayor’s office by conceding from the race, telling news media that a win was unlikely and he wanted to Filner to start building a solid administration as soon as possible. SANTA FE IRRIGATION DISTRICT Retired businessman Greg Gruzdowich was elected to the Division 1 seat (Rancho Santa Fe) on the Santa Fe Irrigation District board with 55.61 percent of the vote. Alan Smerican, a retired FBI agent, was elected to the Division 2 seat (Solana Beach) with 60 percent of the vote. The two join the fivemember board for four-year terms.

COASTAL continued from page 1 minium Owners of South Sierra Avenue (COOSA) in a lawsuit against the Coastal Commission. The suit was brought after the Solana Beach City Council approved the LUP last June, but the CCC returned the draft with 143 modifications in September and another 10 in March, enraging homeowners. Those bringing the suit also threatened to add the city to the filing had it decided to approve the document in September instead of making the revisions that are out for review. Jim Jaffee of the Surfrider Foundation’s Beach Preservation Committee said, however, that the litigation has already been filed and the smartest thing for the city to do would have been to adopt the plan and file amendments if changes are needed. He said if the CCC rejects it, they would have the protection of the Attorney General’s office instead of having to go to war with the homeowners, who fear
the plan jeopardizes the future and value of their properties. Jaffee also said that the LUP can be further clarified if needed during the drafting of the Local Implementation Plan (LIP), which details how the LUP is executed and implemented. “Any delay is good for the blufftop owners and bad for the rest of the community,” he said, adding that hiring of well-known political consultant Tom Shepard indicates the blufftop owners may be trying to launch a “PR campaign that preys on emotion rather than protecting the coast.” He said the revised language of the LUP could be interpreted to allow a remodel of a blufftop home with a seawall every five years — a “perpetual remodel,” he called it — when the intention of the CCC is to require that no new development require a seawall. This begs the question of whether a remodel is considered new development, he said. “If you continue to

have a seawall forever, eventually you will have no beach,” he said. Corn is also not completely happy with the current revisions. “Some are excellent and exactly correct,” he said. “Others we think that are needed for the benefit of the city are not there.” Unlike Jaffee in his thinking that the city should save itself possible litigation fees by relying on amendments and clarification later if needed, Corn said the LUP must be clearly written and precise or else it “defeats the purpose.” “There’s been enough acrimony over this,” he said. “The city needs to put
continued from page 1 “Right now we have great service,” said Barbara Cerny, who sits on the CSA 17 Advisory Committee as part of the Torrey Pines Community Planning Group. “What worries me, though, is that the county may go with the lowest bid and if that means contracting with a new EMS provider, it may compromise service.” Cerny also said that a change in EMS provider means all the employees have to go from one company to another — that is, if they keep their jobs. As a former, decadeslong fire department employee, Cerny understands the workings of CSA 17, which was formed by the Board of Supervisors in 1969, and is watching the process closely — mainly because she has concerns ranging from mutual aid to a lack of public input on the process. The competitive bid process provides an opportunity for the county to evaluate its EMS service and include any new guidelines in its request for proposal (RFP), a detailed “job description,” so to speak, that goes out to EMS providers wishing to bid on the some $5 million contract. Before the RFP goes out, the county is to hold a request for information (RFI) meeting to allow the public to voice any concerns, and officials may also order a third party to conduct a formal analysis of EMS performance in an effort to steer guidelines set forth in the RFP. A special public meeting was held in late August and an RFI meeting was held on Sept. 6, however, members of the public were present at neither. Representatives from a handful of interested EMS companies were present at the RFI meeting, however, and Cerny said the county’s failure to inform the public about the socalled “community forum,” leads her to believe the
an end to that and have really clear policies.” One revision the city made could put the bluff edge setback — the point at which construction is not allowed — closer to the edge of the bluff giving homeowners more control over their properties, however, Corn said the language is not clear enough. “In the rewrite, they say, ‘in some cases,’” he said. “It’s somewhat confusing.” He compared the LUP to imminent domain in that it’s “regulatory taking.” “By passing regulations that are so restrictive, the city prohibits the homeowner from using the prop-
erty how it’s intended and it loses value,” he said. Jaffee, on the other hand, said “the only taking that’s occurred is the taking of public land for private seawalls.” Corn has also provided feedback to the city in regard to the LUP’s treatment of stairways to the beach that exist on condo properties. The revisions state that those stairways will be phased out and converted to public use, but Corn objects that “nobody knows what ‘phased out’ means.” “Not that [the condo owners] don’t want to share, but it’s a safety issue because those stairs are not built to accommodate the public,”
he said. In its revisions, the city added that “public use should be reasonably accommodated,” however, Corn said such language is still unclear and if those condo owners have to share their private stairways the property values will suffer. Jaffee likewise said the city needs to be more specific in its revisions, because in its current form the LUP “gives uncertainty to the millions who visit these beaches.” “When are you going to stop madness,” he said. “When are you going to say we cannot block access to the beach?”
meeting was geared more toward potential bidders than the public. American Medical Response (AMR), the company San Diego County contracted with prior to Rural Metro had a “big presence” at the meeting, said Cerny, and they are also winning new contracts in other parts of the state. Marcy Metz, the county’s EMS director, said there were no local advertisements for the meeting, and the only prior outreach was via flyers passed out to advisory board members and a posting on the county’s BuyNet website — an online interface for purchasing, contracts and e-commerce that, although public, is not highly visible to the everyday local resident. In addition to thinking there should have been more public input on the process, Cerny said the county should have done a formal study on CSA 17, analyzing response times and ambulance placement amid changes in population, traffic and other factors. Last time the county contracted for EMS in 2006, officials did two studies that cost more than $50,000, but no new study has been done since. At the request of the advisory committee, however, officials at the two recent meetings still presented an in-house comparison between current conditions and those from the 2006 study, and some concerns were noted. One major issue is that Del Mar Heights, which is technically part of San Diego but was annexed into CSA 17 in 1976, is nearly entirely reliant on mutual aid from the City of San Diego, which also uses Rural Metro but is recontracting as well. Without response from San Diego’s ambulances, standard response times in Del Mar Heights were only met between zero and 50 percent of the time, according to county documents, however, they were met 90 to 100 percent of the time when mutual aid was factored in. “CSA 17 has to be self-
sufficient,” said Cerny, adding that residents of Del Mar Heights have been lucky that San Diego also uses Rural Metro and can provide mutual aid without additional costs. “If any other companies win the bid then San Diego is out of the picture.” Despite the reliance on mutual aid, Metz said there is no connection between San Diego and CSA 17 in their contracting processes, however, “bidders can be innovative in how they propose to provide service.” “We provide the framework, and they come up with a way to operate,” she said, adding that there could be higher transport fees if mutual aid is used between two different companies. “Our goal is that it’s fair, competitive and remains objective going through the process.” Metz said the most important thing for the community to know is that the response time standard of 10 minutes, 90 percent of the time, will not change for CSA 17. There’s a two-year review period that can end the contract, said Cerny, however, she said the advisory board also suggested implementing penalties if guidelines are not being met. Winston McColl, San Diego County’s director of purchasing and contracting, said standards set forth in the RFP cannot be discussed before it opens for bidding, but the RFP will “probably be similar to the current contract.” The RFP will most likely post this month, he said, and the entire process takes about six to seven months. The county’s Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) will choose members to be on the selection committee, which will choose which company will be awarded the contract. The committee is anonymous and usually consists of voting members and non-voting technical experts. He said a member of the public may sit on the selection
committee, however, that’s up to HHSA. “They may enter negotiations with the top one or two or they may go straight to No. 1,” he said, adding that price is not the driving factor. “Many things are considered, from staff resumes, to training to past performance.” More information about CSA 17 can be found on the county’s HHSA website at www.sdcounty.ca.gov/hhsa. To contact someone on the CSA 17 Advisory Committee, call (619) 285-6429.
BONDS continued from page 1 bond it is disappointing that the current economic climate prevented enough voters from backing the bond. “It is unlikely that Sacramento will return to funding school facilities and technology any time soon, if ever,” Hall said in a statement on behalf of the committee. “This will ultimately force the DMUSD into dipping into teaching and learning funds for every repair, safety and technology need in the future. We sincerely hope that looming cuts to the DMUSD budget will not be difficult to reverse should revenues ever return.” DMUSD Superintendent Holly McClurg released the following statement on the impacts to the district should the bond remain unapproved: “The school district, in these challenging times, has significant needs and the focus of Prop CC was to make a stable source of local funding available to address those needs,” McClurg said. “The district will work hard to identify alternative ways to address the significant needs that continue to exist in the district.” For final results, visit www.delmartimes.net or www.sdcounty.ca.gov/voters/ results/election.xml

To Your Health: The many faces of a cancer diagnosis BY RAY LIN, MD, SCRIPPS HEALTH Few events may be as life-changing as a diagnosis of cancer. Yet thousands of people hear such news every day. In fact, according to the National Cancer Institute, more than 40 percent of men and women born today will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lives. For people living with cancer, the challenges may not only be physical, but emotional as well. After the initial shock wears off, patients may have a variety of reactions. Some may feel overwhelmed by fear, while others may be angry or even deny that the diagnosis is correct. Anxiety is often accompanied by feelings of helplessness, vulnerability or depression, all of which can greatly affect a patient’s quality of life. Moreover, anxiety can also interfere with sleep and lead to problems such as headaches, fatigue and loss of appetite — all of which can make a cancer patient feel worse. In some cases, professional help from a therapist or counselor may be needed to help manage anxiety. Cancer support groups and partnering with a cancer survivor may also help
patients understand that they are not alone in their fight against cancer and that they can win. Similarly, cancer patients may have spiritual struggles, especially if they have strong religious beliefs. Some patients may put their faith in God to determine their fate, while others may feel angry or betrayed. Spiritual beliefs also may affect treatment decisions. For many patients, strong spiritual beliefs may make it easier to cope and help alleviate anxiety. Many cancer patients experience anxiety about the physical effects of treatment. The most common side effects result from the three primary procedures: surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Fortunately, cancer treatments are improving every day, and as a result fewer patients experience severe side effects today versus a decade or two ago. For example, surgery to remove a tumor once may have required a large incision and a hospital stay. Now, the surgery might be accomplished through minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopically or even in a robotically assisted procedure, all of
Volunteers needed for official Komen 3-Day Walk Cheering Station in Del Mar On Friday, Nov. 16, more than 4,000 walkers will travel through the Village of Del Mar on the first leg of a 60mile journey in support of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for Breast Cancer in San Diego. The Del Mar Village Association, with support from En Fuego Cantina & Grill, will host the official downtown Del Mar Cheering Station and water distribution center for the walkers. Volunteers, dressed in pink, are needed to help cheer on the walkers and pass out water bottles as they group sweeps through Del Mar between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. on Nov. 16. Event officials are asking for donations of cases of water bottles to be delivered to En Fuego Cantina & Grill any time prior to Wednesday, Nov. 14. To add to the festivities, the Torrey Pines High School cheerleaders, and the Del Mar lifeguards and fire fighters will be on hand to cheer on the walkers. “This is an amazing opportunity for Del Mar to show our community pride and support for these walkers,” said Jen Grove, executive director of the Del Mar Village Association. “We want them to remember the overwhelming support and cheers from the crowd as they walk through the Village of Del Mar.”
which result in less pain, bleeding and scarring, as well as a faster recovery time. Radiation therapy has also improved in the last few years. Newer machines allow treatment to be administered in a more targeted manner, preserving more of the healthy surrounding tissue. Some patients may be able to complete their treatments in a matter of days rather than a matter of weeks. Many of the most common chemotherapy side effects are related to eating, such as dry mouth, changes in taste, loss of appetite, and difficulty chewing or swallowing. Digestive side effects may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation. The typical side effects of radiation are skin redness and fatigue. Other side effects depend on where the tumor is located in the body. If you are receiving radiation treatment for stomach cancer for example, you may experience diarrhea and nausea. Because chemotherapy can lower blood cell counts,
patients may experience bleeding or clotting problems, as well as anemia. Patients may experience temporary hair loss during treatment, as well as hormonal imbalances. Some patients also experience “chemo brain” — mental confusion and problems with concentration and memory. However, newer, targeted chemotherapy drugs are less toxic than earlier formulas, and are far better tolerated by patients. Most patients experience only minimal to moderate side effects. Complementary and integrative treatments can help with both physical and emotional side effects. Evidence indicates that therapies such as acupuncture, guided meditation, yoga and biofeedback —along with counseling and support groups — can significantly ease the challenges of treatment. In addition, prescription medications may be needed during treatment to address issues such as sleep problems, nausea, anxiety or depression. Patients undergoing cancer

Five hundred San Diegans are back from a fantastic, warp-speed voyage to keep Girl Scouting available and affordable for more than 31,000 local girls. Urban Campout 2012: A Space Odyssey launched Sept. 14 at the San Diego Air & Space Museum. Qualcomm was presenting sponsor for Girl Scouts San Diego’s 15th annual “fun fundraiser for grown-ups,” which netted $300,000. Guests included Solveig Deuprey — Girl Scouts San Diego board president — and her husband, Dan; Cathryn and David Ramirez; and Debbie and Mike Rider, all residents of Carmel Valley. Board member Rick Brooks of Solana Beach attended with his wife, Roseanne Brooks. Del Mar residents and board members Mel Katz and Phil Blair were there with their wives, Linda Katz and Catherine Blair. Longtime Girl Scouts supporter Cindy Moore of Solana Beach was also present. Solana Beach resident Nina de Burgh — whose greatDan and Solveig Deuprey, great-aunt Juliette Gordon Low founded Girl Scouting 100 Girl Scouts San Diego years ago this year — co-chaired the honorary committee board president. with Kathy Issa, while Ann and Ben Haddad chaired the event committee. The emcee was Carol LeBeau, a former Girl Scout who now serves as San Diego Chair and Promise Leader for Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary celebration. Partygoers in space-age and TGIF casual attire celebrated Girl Scouting’s 100th anniversary. They met NASA astronaut Sherwood “Woody” Spring, heard from Mayor Jerry Sanders, got Lost in Space with TV actress June Lockhart (who also starred in the Lassie series), danced to live music by Haute Chile, enjoyed a performance by the Girl Scouts San Diego Glee Chorus, and played flight simulator games.

For the Belly Up, a rich musical legacy BY ROB LEDONNE It goes without saying that Meryl Klemow loves her job. As the Promotion and Hospitality Manager at the Belly Up in Solana Beach, Klemow is an ardent fan of music and the business that compasses it. “When I first applied, I told them I would do anything, even if meant scrubbing the floor. I stepped in as a receptionist, then did website work, then ticketing, leading up to my position today.” For fans of live entertainment in the North County area, not many places compare to the unique nature of the Belly Up’s legend and rich history. First opened in 1974 by entrepreneur Dave Hodges, it was named the Belly Up because everyone told him a live music joint in Solana Beach would fail and go “belly up,” even though “most people think he got the name from the term ‘belly up to the bar,’” says Klemow. Throughout the rest of the ‘70s and ‘80s, the Belly Up gained a reputation as the go-to spot for a fun night on the town. The first incarnation of the venue featured such staples as a ping pong table (which the staff is asked about to this day), and a now-infamous disco theme on Monday nights, which drew in excess of 600 people every week during the genre’s heyday. “We tried to recreate it with a weekday RubA-Dub Reggae night, but it just wasn’t as successful as the disco night. Though I have to wonder if that was just a different time. Back then, people in their 20s used to go out every night, but now I don’t know anyone that’s hitting the town every day.” As popularity of the club remained steady, ownership changed hands from Hodges to Steve Goldberg and Phil Berkovitz, two restaurant industry entrepreneurs with an eye for the entertainment industry, who are nearing their nineyear anniversary heading the venue. Goldberg and Berkovitz, who also own the Pacific Coast Grill in Cardiff, expanded the team at the Belly Up and have managed to keep up with an everchanging music industry and economy. Explains Klemow: “Steve and Phil really wanted to keep the same model of booking lesser known local bands and national acts, as well as bigger known locals and smaller national artists. We get them in every single category.” Helping out with book-
ing is musician Chris Goldsmith, a five-time Grammy winner whom the staff calls their “musical guidance counselor.” “He gives us advice on everything from what bands are hot, making deals and offers, and how to be more efficient. He’s the most knowledgeable about the business because he’s out in the field performing,” said Klemow. “We wouldn’t be where we are without him.” The range of shows the Belly Up books, both past and present, range from legendary artists like Etta James and B.B. King, to buzzed-about newer acts such as AWOL Nation and Delta Spirit. Countless artists also performed at the Belly Up way before hitting it big, such as the Black Eyed Peas. Actor/musician Hugh Laurie “They were here when they were much smaller,” re- performed at the Belly Up members Klemow. “Everyone thought they were great, this past spring. but it wasn’t a sold out crowd at the time.” The most popular shows from Belly Up history can be judged by how fast tickets sell out, and Death Cab for Cutie holds the record after every ticket was gone after two minutes on sale. “Everyone thought the ticketing link was broken on our website. I called up our ticketing system, and they said ‘no, you sold out.’” However, sometimes lesser known bands are most impressive. “One act I really liked was Concrete Blond,” says Klemow. “Their female lead singer is so good; I thought she was going to blow the roof off the place. She totally dominated the audience. Working with them behind the scenes, where you see what artists are really like, she was extremely nice with both us and the fans. Life on the road is hard, and some people don’t act like that, but she did.” Looking into the future, the bookers at the Belly Up have a packed schedule this upcoming winter. Among the highlights: a holiday show courtesy of Chris Isaak on Dec. 8, Justin Townes Earle on Dec. 12, Ra Ra Riot on Feb. 15, and Kenny Rogers in March. Said Klemow: “If we really want a band we’ll book them as far out as can be, because from October through April we seem to have more bands than (available) days.” For now, Klemow and her team will continue to keep an eye out for new acts and extend the reign of the venue in Solana Beach. “The Belly Up is special because of the way we get everything done. We are so laid back, but we know how to work hard. I think it has something to do with being so close to the beach.” For more information on the Belly Up, check out its website: www.bellyup.com

For more than 50 years, local animal shelter has been anything but ordinary • Rancho Coastal Humane Society continues to grow, launch unique programs such as pet food bank BY CLAIRE HARLIN When animal lover Maria K. Lloyd bought a little house on 5 acres and started the Rancho Coastal Humane Society in 1960, there was a little dirt road behind the rural property that provided access to it. Now, that dirt road is better known as Interstate 5 and the desolate gap between the property and Del Mar has been filled with the coastal communities of Solana Beach and Leucadia. The sleepy little animal shelter, still visible from Interstate 5, is still today in the same quaint yellow house and, although several rooms have been added on over the years to accommodate the growth, it possesses a unique, cottagelike look in comparison to other shelter buildings. The shelter, located at 389 Requeza St. in Encinitas, doesn’t just stand out because of its appearance and visibility from the highway. It’s home to the only military working dog memorial west of the Mississippi, it’s one of few local shelters with a “Rabbitat,” it’s got a thriving community education program that benefits more than 20,000 kids a year and, on Nov. 3, it opened one of the county’s first pet food banks. Not to mention, the Rancho Coastal Humane Society is like a second home to the many locals who frequent the “Cricket’s Corner” dog park there, and the facility is also home to permanent residents Smoky, the llama, and Scooter, the miniature horse. “People think of us as that little local shelter that they drive by on the 5, but we’re just trying to get people to get off the freeway and come in,” said John Van Zante, a spokesman for the Humane Society. He said the shelter has some programs that were once “sleepers,” but have been revived and are growing rapidly. “We’ve been attracting people from Lemon Grove to Orange County,” he said. One program the shelter is proud to offer is the Animal Safehouse Program, which was the third of its kind in the nation when it began in 1997. In cases of domestic abuse, victims generally can’t take
Rancho Coastal Humane Society animals when they are removed from the home or seek refuge at a shelter, and in those cases, the abuser often turns violent against the pet, Van Zante said. “Sometimes the fear of leaving the animal keeps people in the abusive situation longer than they should,” he said. “We are able to take in the animals here so humans can escape rather than let the pets become the victim.” The shelter has another program called Pets For Patriots that lets members of the military community adopt homeless pets at a discounted rate. Another program, Shelter to Soldier, just launched at the Humane Society, and it rescues dogs to train them to become service companions for veterans. The program is run by Graham Bloem, who was a trainer for two years at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society in 2006, as well as a number of other training programs. More information on the program can be found at www.specialty-
In its early days, Interstate 5 was nothing but a dirt road that ran behind the Rancho Coastal Humane Society, located at 389 Requeza St. in Encinitas. Courtesy photo dogtraining.com. Knowing that animals are a huge source of fascination for kids, and also that kids will be the next generation of animal owners, the Humane Society’s board has put strong effort into making the facility a go-to source of education for kids. While it may be fun for a child to go to the center and help pick out an animal when the family is looking to adopt, it’s not every day that parents can bring new pets into the home. But there’s still good reason to bring kids to this shelter, whether for a camp, community service or even a birthday party. The shelter conducts parties specially adapted for kids

Q&A with Imam Taha Hassane, director of the Islamic Center of San Diego BY JOE TASH Recently, after a trailer for an anti-Islamic film called “Innocence of Muslims” was posted on You Tube, triggering violent protests in the Middle East, 24 religious leaders in San Diego County issued a joint statement condemning both the film and the ensuing violence. “Ironically, those who created the film and those who killed and harmed innocents seem to have much in common. Specifically, they neither accept responsibility nor Imam Taha Hassane do they respect the dignity of other human beings,” read the statement in part, which was signed by Christian, Muslim and Jewish clergy members. One of the signers was Imam Taha Hassane, a native of Algeria who serves as Imam and director of the Islamic Center of San Diego. Hassane also leads Friday services and lectures at the Muslim Community Center in Santaluz, which serves some 500 members, most of whom live in Rancho Santa Fe, Santaluz, Rancho Peñasquitos, Rancho Bernardo, Mira Mesa and other North County communities. Before immigrating to the United States with his family in 2001, Hassane taught high school for 10 years in Algeria, where his mother and many other relatives also were teachers. Hassane earned a bachelor’s degree in Islamic studies from the University of Algiers and a master of theology in Islamic studies from the Graduate Theological Foundation in South Bend, Indiana. Hassane is married and has four daughters, and his family moved to San Diego in 2004. Recently, this newspaper sat down with Hassane to discuss a variety of issues, including his reaction, and that of his fellow American Muslims, to the release of the film, the tensions of free speech vs. religious tolerance, treatment of women in Islam, and Hassane’s upcoming hajj, or pilgrimage, to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. Following is that conversation in a Q&A format, edited for brevity. Q. What was your reaction to the film? A. The film itself was offending to Muslims all over the
world. Portraying our Prophet, peace be upon him, in that way is not acceptable. It’s something that hurt all Muslims around the world. At the same time, I don’t see this offense to Muslims as justification or excuse for the violence that occurred right after that. I don’t believe the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, in Libya, was because of the film. I believe it was in retaliation from a group affiliated with Al Qaeda after the killing of one of their leaders. It had more to do with the 11th anniversary of 9-11. As we have seen in the media, the overwhelming majority of Libyans rejected that act and considered it an act of terror, and they asked law enforcement and their own government to go after those who committed this crime and bring them to justice. I believe as a Muslim the way people demonstrated and associated violence with those demonstrations (in such countries as Yemen, Sudan, Pakistan and Egypt) was not appropriate at all. It was against the teachings of Islam and against the character of the Prophet himself. Q. How do American Muslims reconcile freedom of speech vs. provocations such as the recent film that are insulting to Muslims? A. Maybe American Muslims are the best people to understand this concept of freedom of speech in the West and in the U.S. in particular. Muslims around the world, especially in the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia, it’s hard for them to understand the concept of freedom of speech because of the political regimes they have been living in their entire lives. In Islam, freedom of speech is considered very essential to the development of society and culture and civilization. We have to re-define and distinguish the line between free speech and responsible speech. In American culture we understand someone cannot scream in a theater, Fire, Fire! This person will be held accountable for every harm that might be caused to people or property. I look at this film the same way. I don’t believe freedom of speech is a license or a blank check given to people to say whatever they want even though their speech will cause deep and profound harm to other people. Especially when this freedom of speech defames or insults sacred beliefs and sacred objects and figures
of different faiths. I think the problem in the world, especially the Western world, is the double standard. If something defames Islam and Muslims, it’s freedom of speech. It’s tolerable. But if you talk about other sensitive issues, for example, if you criticize Israeli politics or the Israeli government or you say something about the Holocaust or something like this, it’s not freedom of speech any more. Q. Over the past 25 years, on a number of occasions, portrayals of Islam or the Prophet Muhammad have resulted in violent protests. These have included Salman Rushdie’s book, “The Satanic Verses,” cartoons published in a Danish newspaper and the recent film. Undoubtedly there will be others. How can such violence be avoided in the future? A. I addressed this question in the last sermon I gave on Friday. I said it’s not the first, it’s not going to be the last. What are we going to do? Do we have a strategy, have we bothered ourselves and thought about the right way to respond to this kind of stuff? Unfortunately, I don’t think so. I believe Muslims should develop a better way to counter this kind of stuff and when I say counter, stop reacting and being pro-active. For Muslims, especially in the West and North America, have to do serious efforts to reach out to the larger society and tell their story. We have a wonderful, non-told story… of who we are and what our faith is about.” All minorities went through a lot of hard times in this country. With continued work and effort to educate and reach out they achieved their goals and they became a very important part of this nation. We have to do the same. Now, especially after the tragedy of 9-11, it’s our turn as Muslim Americans to go through the same path as all the minorities, religious or ethnic. We have to work hard and struggle, it takes time. But I’m very optimistic and hopeful that one day, all what’s happening now becomes part of the history.” Q. Americans see that in some Muslim countries, women and girls are denied rights that men have, such as going to school, holding a job or even driving a car. How

TPHS Beach Bowl victory
Torrey Pines didn’t know if it would make the playoffs going into its regular season finale against a heavily favored La Costa Canyon team. The Falcons emerged from what might have been a win-or-go-home game with new life. A stunning 24-17 upset victory over LCC in a nonleague game on Nov. 2 at the annual Beach Bowl helped the Falcons secure a San Diego Section Division I playoff berth, and sent them into the postseason with the wind at their back.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion It isn’t always about politics I want to thank Trey Mitchell for his letter to this newspaper (“Where are the protesters today?” 10/25/12). It’s nice to know our weekly rallies on the corner of El Camino and Del Mar Heights Road are remembered! Contrary to Mr. Mitchell’s hunch, though, these weekly peace rallies did not originate to coincide with the ‘08 election. I know how important party loyalty is to some, so it may be hard for Mr. Mitchell and some others to understand that for many Americans who dearly love this country, not every action is politically motivated. In fact, these rallies were never about politics. They started long before the election, as outraged Americans began protesting the illconceived, irresponsible, mismanaged war in Iraq that was started under false pretenses. Locally, I can vouch for the fact that the rallies were intentionally not political, but rather a reflection of a moral imperative felt by mothers, fathers, students, friends, neighbors, co-workers and local veterans (including Iraq War veterans), all of whom were drawn to that Carmel Valley corner and many other corners around this city, this state and our nation to rally against this war. On our corner alone, 20 to 60 people came out week after week, rain or shine. After the ‘08 election the question of continuing the rallies was discussed here in Carmel Valley. There was debate, but ultimately the decision was made to give America’s newly elected president a chance to fulfill his promise to end both wars. It is because President Obama indeed ended the war in Iraq and has a timetable in place to end the war in Afghanistan that the rallies have not resumed on this corner (although there are some who are protesting the unmanned drone attacks on a weekly basis at another location, which further demonstrates that these rallies have no political affiliation). If this president or any president starts another ill-conceived war that puts our soldiers in harm’s way under false pretenses, or tries to resume the level of war profiteering and privatizing, and the no-bid contracts we saw under our last president, I am certain patriotic Americans will again rise up and protest these wrongs not only locally, but around this nation with that same level of passion once again. For the tens and hundreds of thousands of Americans who participate in these rallies, it is a matter of patriotic freedom of speech and morality, not politics. Kim Perl Carmel Valley
City Council must set reasonable parking standards The VSP (Village Specific Plan) has been defeated, but Del Mar residents still want change. I’ve submitted a speaker slip for the Nov. 19 City Council hearing, and my speech is below. I invite concerned residents to attend this hearing and voice your ideas about how to promote downtown revitalization. I’m appearing before you tonight to suggest that in order to re-vitalize the downtown, the City Council must set reasonable parking standards, which I propose to be: (1) Adapt SANDAG parking ratios (2) Adapt the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) methodology for calculating peak hour parking requirements for mixed-use buildings. (3) Wave parking requirements for outside dining areas. (4) Include curbside parking in a building’s inventory of parking spaces. Most residents agree that the downtown is in need of revitalization. The VSP was proposed as a solution, but residents rejected it because, among other reasons, they want newer and more attractive buildings, not bigger buildings. At the numerous meetings discussing re-vitalization, the question was never explored: “How did Del Mar’s planning and design review process, which created beautiful residential properties, fail in developing the downtown?” It happened because Del Mar has an impossible parking ordinance. For example: Bully’s parking lot doesn’t even provide enough parking to comply with Del Mar’s parking ordinance. Today, Del Mar’s commercial district is mostly non-descript old buildings . . . that were given permits for uses way beyond their ability to provide parking for those uses. Del Mar’s current parking shortage is empirical evidence that this happened.

Protesters still active — and involved In his article in the Oct. 25 edition of this newspaper, Trey Mitchell of Carmel Valley wondered where those 20 or so individuals were who used to stand on the corner of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real each Sunday during 2007 and 2008 with signs against the war and in favor of peace and justice. He asked if there was another agenda at play, and wonders where they have all gone, given that Obama has continued many of the same policies and practices of George W. Bush. Trey Mitchell has asked some excellent questions. First off, there were actually eight “ENOUGH” groups around San Diego in 2007-2008, with Carmel Valley being one of the most active. My wife and I started the Carmel Valley group in the spring of 2007, having had “enough” of the two wars and bad policies that appeared to have no end in sight. On our first Sunday, 15 people, mostly our friends, joined us on the corner, after we told them what we were going to do each Sunday and asked them to join us. By the second week, 30 people, many who we did not know, were on the corner with us. We soon became a very recognized group each Sunday, averaging 22 people per Sunday for 69 straight Sundays. At our six-month and one-year special events on the corner, we had 55 people each time standing and waving for peace and justice on all four corners. As the election between Obama and McCain approached, we collectively agreed that if Obama won, we would stand down, given that he promised to bring the wars to conclusion, while McCain appeared to favor an open end to both wars. With the election of Obama, we had one final memorable Sunday on the corner, and disbanded to wait and see. We continue to stay in touch by e-mail and often see one another at current peace and justice events here and around San Diego. Are we pleased by the policies of Obama concerning these two wars since his election in 2008 ? Speaking for myself only, but reflecting what I believe to be the feelings of many of the fine “ENOUGH” folks, no, we are not. We are not pleased by the continuance of the prison camp at Guantanamo and its mockery of justice, we are not pleased that the Afghanistan War continues and will be fought for two more years (imagine scheduling the end to a war), and we are not pleased that it took three years for Obama to end the Iraq War. We remain displeased by the whole electoral process with the advent of “Citizens United” and the flood gates of unlimited money into our elections. So why aren’t we still out on the corner ? Well, many of us are still out on corners around San Diego on a regular basis with groups like the San Diego Veterans For Peace, the San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice, the Quakers, and others. Some of us are on the corner of Scripps Poway Parkway and General Atomics Drive each Thursday asking the public if unrestricted use of drones in Afghanistan and over the skies of the United States is a good policy. Some of us work with vets to honor the fallen on the lawn in front of the USS Midway Museum on major holidays, while also educating the public as to how many have died and are still dying, and how much it continues to costs us. Many of us are working for political candidates who support peace and justice at the national, state and local levels, and some of us are tired and depressed by the nature of politics and the continuance of unjustified and worthless wars, when so much is needed at home, and so little is being done. Are we proud to have stood on the corner for 69 consecutive Sundays waving to our neighbors and friends on behalf of peace and justice …. we sure are ! For some of us, it was a first time doing something like this, and most participants felt empowered and energized to have been there week after week, and have moved along to other civic projects they value. Did we make a difference? Yes, because before our presence on the corner, many folks in Carmel Valley, including many of us, thought that wars and injustice were not something that people in Carmel Valley really cared about, and the “ENOUGH” group proved us wrong and gave us hope. Will we be out there this Sunday …. sadly, no. We have discussed going back onto the corner again, but age, the economy, and life has taken its toll on our amazing group. At least one of our finest members has died. But be on notice …. and keep an eye out on the corner of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real, because with the nature of ongoing events in the United States and the world, we may have to get back on the corner again soon, and we hope Trey Mitchell and many others will join us. Gil Field Carmel Valley No City Council since 1967 has been willing to address the problem . . . and the City has not enforced the parking ordinance in a uniform manner. The City will be unable to correct the current situation until they acknowledge they haven’t observed the parking ordinance. Of the 23 restaurants established since 1967, none have been required to comply with the “one per 90” ordinance except 1201 Camino del Mar. Of the eight restaurants with outdoor seating created or expanded since 1989, none have been required to comply with the “one per 90” ordinance except 1201 Camino del Mar. While it may seem counter-intuitive to reduce the parking standards when there’s a parking shortage, the fact is that unreasonable parking standards were so onerous that they were never enforced, except against 1201 Camino del Mar. I don’t know what the City can do about all these under-parked restaurants . . . that have been enriched by millions of dollars . . . but it’s time to acknowledge what’s happened here. It’s time for the City to replace its impossible parking standards, and subjective interpretations, with a new parking ordinance. George Conkwright 1201 Camino del Mar
PARTNERSHIP continued from page 2 governor. He insisted that the county would not incur any financial or legal liability. “We’re confident that can be achieved,” he said. A partnership with the county would ensure more local control of the fairgrounds because it represents the entire San Diego County region and its residents, Day said. “I’m almost as excited today as on opening day of the fair and the races,” said Tim Fennell, CEO and general manager of the fairgrounds. “I see this as a wonderful opportunity that will sustain the future of the fairgrounds for my grandkids and my grandkids’ grandkids.” The issue of who will own and operate the fairgrounds came to the fore in 2010 when former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger reached a tentative deal with the city of Del Mar to sell the property to the city. Under Gov. Jerry Brown, that option has been taken off the table. “We have no intention of selling the (Del Mar) Fairgrounds,” said Jim Houston, deputy secretary for legislative and public engagement with the California Department of Food and Agriculture, which oversees the state’s 52 fairgrounds and its agricultural districts. The state does want fairgrounds to enhance their relevance and sustainability in the communities they serve, Houston said. Local control and support of fairgrounds became more important this year as the state cut all funding to fairgrounds throughout California due to budget constraints. The 22nd DAA is in a different situation because it did not receive any state money, even before this year’s budget cuts, and is considered the most financially successful fairground in California. But encouraging more local control is still a priority, Houston said. “We’re very encouraged that the county voted unanimously to engage in this. We appreciate Mr. Day’s leadership and the rest of the directors in pursuing this partnership, and want to make sure we all work together to form something that is for the betterment of the community,” Houston said. Houston said he does not anticipate the dissolution of the current 22nd DAA board. One possibility of a new governance model might be Antelope Valley, where a joint powers authority was formed between that area’s DAA and the city of Lancaster.
November 8, 2012 A JPA was also one of the potential models suggested by Del Mar Mayor Carl Hilliard. Del Mar has a close interest in the operation of the fairgrounds, since the majority of the property lies within its city limits. The city has long had a contentious relationship with the fairgrounds, and last year joined with Solana Beach and the San Diego River Park JPA in suing the 22nd DAA over its master plan. Hilliard and Councilman Terry Sinnott spoke in favor of the partnership idea at the Board of Supervisors meeting, but wanted to make sure that the city’s interests are represented in any agreement. “It only makes sense that a representative of Del Mar is part of the decision-making body that is proposed. That’s something we would encourage the supervisors to consider,” Sinnott said. Coming up with a new governance model will be a complex task with lots of moving parts, said Hilliard, but it can be done. “All of the parties are going to have to come to the table if it’s going to work. And the county is key to bringing everybody together,” Hilliard said. Roberts said there is a “significant level of interest” by the Board of Supervisors in pursuing a partnership with the 22nd DAA. “What is the future of this resource going to be and how is it going to serve all of us?” Roberts said. “Let’s look at this as a region, put out heads together, and have an open political process, where we bring a lot of different ideas into one coherent plan.”
DIRECTOR continued from page 12 do American Muslims feel about this issue? A. We have to make a difference between the teachings of Islam regarding women, and the practices that exist in some Middle Eastern communities and societies. When you see in some communities in the Middle East or Southeast Asia, Muslim women are deprived from seeking knowledge, this is totally against the teachings of the Prophet himself, where he made seeking knowledge mandatory for Muslim men and women, and his own wife, Aisha, was a religious scholar. What we are hearing and seeing in the media about the very bad treatment of women, this is not because of the teachings of Islam, but this is because of
running away from or negating or ignoring the teachings of Islam. I know for a fact that Muslim scholars, moderate scholars all over the world, have been speaking against this treatment and this mentality and they are still doing it. Q. I understand you are about to leave for the hajj, or pilgrimage, to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia, that this is your fourth time on the hajj, and you will be leading a group of American Muslims. Can you tell us about it? A. Pilgrimage is one of the five pillars of Islam, a mandatory act of worship upon Muslim men and women who are able physically and financially to make it. It is mandatory at least once a life. I do it once a year. Pilgrimage for me is an extraordinary spiritual experience. Spending a few days in the holy mosque where the Prophet Abraham, and the Prophet Ishmael and the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon them, all spent time and walked. Every time I’m there my mind goes back centuries and centuries and centuries ago, to remember what happened over there, to remember the revelation that was sent
down in that place. Pilgrimage is a time to feel the equality between all the people. When you find yourself among three million people from all over the world, wearing the same garments, and doing the same things, sitting in the same place, whether you are the president of a country or you’re a beggar, you are all the same in the sight of God. Q. Any final thoughts? A. I would like my fellow citizens to understand American Muslims are their neighbors, their friends, classmates and co-workers. We have chosen to live in this very diverse society to be part of the American social fabric. We are doing our best to contribute to the betterment of our nation like everybody else. We are not requesting any special treatment as Muslim Americans, we are just seeking respect and positive understanding. Come and visit us, whether the Islamic Center or any mosque in (North County). Go and ask about Islam. Share your concerns. We welcome everyone and we are very glad to open channels of discussion with everyone, no exceptions.”
SHELTER continued from page 10 in each age group. Not only do they get to interact with the animals, they can learn about them and how to take care of them. “The kids who come out and have never touched a cat before and you put a kitten in front of them or in their arms, it’s just so real,” said Van Zante. “It’s life. It’s so fragile and it’s relying on us for its life. If you can teach that at a young age it carries throughout life. “It teaches kids about humanity and the importance of life and others’ feelings. And that’s important because these are the kids who will be our leaders one day.” Van Zante said the shelter’s pet assisted therapy program is one of the fastest growing. It allowed volunteers and their dogs to get free training that will condition them to visit public places such as convalescent homes, schools and libraries to provide therapy to others. This therapy may come in the form of companionship, uplifting those who have gone through hard times or acting as an audience for kids learning how to read.
“It involves training the dog, but much of it has to do with training the people, and the owners find it very fulfilling,” Van Zante said. After winning a city grant last summer the shelter will be able to open its doors two Saturdays per month to those in need of pet food and supplies, such as cat litter and food bowls. In addition, The Drake Center for Veterinary Care will be providing free medical care, such as exams and vaccines, once a quarter. Van Zante said he hopes the food bank will help the many homeless people who have sought companionship by owning animals and he hopes it will also help those who have suffered hard financial times. “The thought is that instead of abandoning the animal, we hope people will come to us for help,” said Van Zante. “ The working poor are realizing that the companionship of a pet outweighs the financial struggle of affording to keep a pet.” For more information on the shelter and its many services, visit www.rchumanesociety.org.

Local high school teams win a variety of sports events BY GIDEON RUBIN Football: Torrey Pines didn’t know if it would make the playoffs going into its regular season finale against a heavily favored La Costa Canyon team. The Falcons (in photo at right) emerged from what might have been a win-or-go-home game with new life. A stunning 24-17 upset victory over LCC in a nonleague game on Nov. 2 helped the Falcons secure a San Diego Section Division I playoff berth, and sent them into the postseason with the wind at their back. The Falcons, who improved to 5-5 overall for the Photo/Anna Scipione season, hope to carry that momentum into their first round playoff game against Escondido (5-5). The Falcons are scheduled to play at Escondido on Friday (Nov. 9) at 7 p.m. In the LCC game, Chase Pickwell scored on a run from the 1-yard line midway through the fourth quarter to break a 17-17 deadlock. Pickwell rushed for 118 yards on 26 carries to lead the Falcons. Mark Detrow contributed 39 rushing yards on six carries. Falcons quarterback Mike Ward completed five of six pass attempts for 41 yards including a scoring pass to Jack Bailey. Bailey caught four passes for 38 yards. The Falcons broke a scoreless deadlock midway through the second quarter when Collin Brown kicked a 25-yard field goal. Then after LCC tied the game, Ward connected with a 12-yard scoring pass to Bailey that sent the Falcons into the intermission with a 10-3 lead. ***** In a final tuning for the playoffs, Cathedral Catholic trounced Serra 55-7 in a nonleague game on Nov. 2. The Dons, who’ve won five consecutive San Diego Section titles, were awarded the No. 2 seed and have a first-round bye in the Division III playoffs. They will play on Nov. 16 against the winner of a first round game between Monte Vista and Serra (scheduled for Nov. 9). Josh Gizzi rushed for 124 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Dons, and Tony Johnson rushed for 96 yards and three touchdowns. The Dons took a quick lead when Connor Larkin returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown on Serra’s first possession that set the tone for the win. The Dons improved their overall record for the season to 8-2. ***** Santa Fe Christian concluded its regular season on a winning note with a fourth quarter outburst that propelled the Eagles to a 35-17 Coastal League victory over Francis Parker on Nov. 2. The Eagles trailed 17-14 early in the fourth quarter before closing the game out with three unanswered touchdowns. Conor Keith rushed for 138 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Eagles comeback.
NORTH COAST Keith scored on a 70-yard run with less than 10 minutes left in the game to give the Eagles a 21-14 lead. Keith’s 35-yard run in the closing minutes gave the Eagles a comfortable 28-14 lead. Jake Bailey scored on a 50-yard interception return on Parker’s next possession to put the game out of reach. The victory concluded a perfect 5-0 league championship run and gives the Eagles momentum going into the San Diego Section playoffs. The Eagles were awarded the No. 1 seed in the Division V playoffs. They will play in the quarterfinals on Nov. 16 against the winner of a first round game between Tri-City Christian and Mountain Empire (scheduled for Nov. 9). Golf: Torrey Pines took another step towards what would be an unheard of third straight state championship. The two-time defending state champions breezed to a San Diego Section Championship at the two-day meet that concluded on Nov. 1. The Falcons shot a combined 750 on the 18-hold par-72 course at Coronado Golf Course to finish 52 strokes ahead of Rancho Bernardo, which placed second. Falcons standout Sandy Choi shot a combined 142 score to take first place individually. Minjia Luo was four-over par for the tournament to finish tied for ffith. The Falcons advanced to the Southern California Championships, a qualifying meet for teams and individuals that will be held on Nov. 8 at the Golf Club at Rancho in Murrieta. The state championships will be held on Nov. 13 at Red Hill Country Club in Rancho Cucamonga. Field hockey: Canyon Crest Academy bounced back from its first loss of the season with two decisive wins. The Ravens were coming off a 1-0 Palomar League loss to Poway when they defeated Rancho Bernardo 8-1 on Oct. 30. They went on to defeat Torrey Pines 3-0 two days later. Katie Carlson scored three goals and had one assist and Gabrielle De Petro added two goals and one assist to lead the Ravens. Ravens goalie Clara Belitz had two saves. Carlson and De Petro each scored one goal and had one assist to lead the Ravens in the Torrey Pines game. Haley Schroeder added one goal Belitz had three saves. The Ravens improved to 8-1 in league and 22-1 overall for the season. Water polo The Torrey Pines water polo teams completed a pool sweep last week with the varsity, junior varsity and novice squads all winning the Palomar League Championships. The varsity took the Palomar championship with a 9-6 win over Westview on Nov. 1. The varsity team was undefeated this year in league play. The junior varsity won their league championship, also with a 9-6 victory. The novice team went undefeated all season and won 10-2. Tennis Torrey Pines girls tennis team won their 23rd consecutive CIF Tennis Championship. The victory came under first-year coach Chris Numbers. Mariann Bukich finished first in the league, Kelsey Chen finished third and the doubles pair of Agostina Waisfeld and Sara Kikivas finished fourth. — Karen Billing contributed to this report.

Des McAnuff returns for rock extravaganza premiering at LJ Playhouse BY DIANA SAENGER It won’t be the first time the theater world embraces a rock band for a production, but La Jolla Playhouse’s world-premiere of “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots,” with the music of The Flaming Lips, promises to be the most interesting. The Playhouse and San Diego theater fans welcome back former Playhouse Director Emeritus Des McAnuff, who is directing the musical, the idea for which was “born” in 2005, during McAnuff’s last year as Artistic Director. “I was aware of the album and listening to it during those months,” McAnuff said. “I spoke with Chris Ashley about it then, but only got serious about it two years ago, and he was very enthusiastic about it.” McAnuff was not Des McAnuff only very attuned to the music of The Flaming Lips, but the band performed “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” at the opening What: ‘Yoshimi Battles of “Jersey Boys” on the Pink Robots’ Broadway in 2005.

I extracted story ideas and themes from three of their albums — ‘Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots,’ ‘The Soft Bulletin,’ and ‘At War with the Mystics.’ Wayne gave me feedback and his blessing. He’s a terrific songwriter, a very theatrical artist, and he responded to this in a positive way.” The story of acceptance, love, optimism and conformity centers on Yoshimi (Kimiko Glenn), a young Japanese artist fighting for her life who needs exceptional power and help. She enters a fantasy world as a Japanese warrior and pink robots become a manifestation of her illness. McAnuff said the story is sung all the way

Show explores mystical horse-human bond ‘Valitar’ runs from Nov. 16 through New Year’s Eve at Del Mar Fairgrounds BY KELLEY CARLSON As a story of power and love told through the voice of the horse, the new “Valitar” show speaks volumes. Staged in a 45,000-square-foot big-top tent at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the production begins with imagery on a large screen that represents today’s world — fast city life, texting and cell phones — which transitions to a sky with pollution and a river filled with garbage. Then, a dramatic blackout ... followed by visions representing the elements of earth, wind, fire and water and the introduction of the stars of the show, the equines. “Valitar” — derived from the Latin word Validus, meaning strong, mighty and powerful — demonstrates the mystical relationship between horse and human in a 90-minute performance, beginning Nov. 16 and continuing through New Year’s Eve. About 50 equines of a dozen breeds and 25 performers partner for the energetic and dramatic presentation that features state-of-the-art technology. The crowd can expect to see bareback riding; “liberty” acts, in which horses are free of tack such as saddles and bridles; mountain boarders; acrobats and aerialists; contortionists; vaulting; and trick riders. “(‘Valitar’ is) the expression of how we all (horses and humans) interact,” said Tamara Hemmerly, director of marketing and publicist for the Solana Beach-based production company Equustria Development Inc., in an interview. With all of its area connections, it’s natural that Del Mar was chosen as the location to debut the show. “We are honored to be launching the world premiere of ‘Valitar’ in San Diego this November at the Del Mar Fairgrounds,” said Rancho Santa Fe resident and Equustria President Mark Remley in a news release. “As a locally based company, our priority is to provide a unique experience showcasing some of the finest breeds of horses, combined with the strength and grace of world-class performers.” It was a little more than a year from “Valitar’s” conception to its launch. Mark Remley, an entrepreneur whose background involves
Trick rider/acrobat Sultanbek Kumisbayev rehearses for the ‘Valitar’ show. business software, and his wife, Tatyana, a fashion model from Ramona who grew up riding in all types of disciplines, from dressage to barrel racing, were inspired to create their own production after attending some shows in Las Vegas. Combining their passion for horses with the entertainment concept, the Remleys began assembling a team that included riders and “horse whisperers,” and of course, the equines. Special consideration was taken when matching horses and riders, such as their discipline and personalities, and rehearsals began nine months ago. One of the performers is Sylvia Zerbini, also director of equestrian affairs for “Valitar.” Zerbini, a ninth-generation performer, orchestrates about 10 horses at once during her “liberty” act, using sounds and hands to control her charges. “Everything is done in as natural a way as possible,” Zerbini said. “Horses ... help us pay attention to life a little more,” she added. “They sense when we’re sad, happy, upset.” Additional key crew members include Artistic Director Bernard Quental, who

Photos/Kelley Carlson has performed for Cabaret Equestre, Opera Equestre and Chimére with Zingaro; and Production Manager Louis Cote, who has more than 25 years of experience with large-scale productions. To enhance the show, “Valitar’s” team worked with Marc and Shanon Parker of Parker Brothers Concepts to include props such as a 9-foot-tall iron horse and a 20-foot-tall trampoline wall that is more than 28 feet long. Each prop is utilized by performers, including contortionists and acrobats. “We were intrigued when we initially got the call
from the team at ‘Valitar’ as they described their unusual request for these amazing props,” said Marc Parker, creative director at Melbourna, Fla.-based Parker Brothers Concepts, in a news release. “We typically design motorized concepts that push the creative and technological envelope, and these props do just that. A trampoline wall pulled by horses is definitely not your typical project.” The props and performers are being brought together under the largest aluminum clear span tent in the world.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS
Solana Beach residents turn closet raiding into dress shop concept Saturday and Sunday and allows women to rent, buy, sell, and trade their dresses. The ladies said the response has been huge — and incredibly positive — since the shop opened its doors on Sept. 22 at 324 S. Cedros. For Morrison, the new business venture is quite a shift from her day job. She’s gone from being a financial advisor at Del Mar’s Efficient Market Advisors during the week to being a fashion advisor on the weekends, counseling shoppers on fit, style and color. “I’ve never had someone walk in and say, ‘What a great idea,’ in the financial world, but that’s what people say when they walk in here,” said Morrison. “We’ve had amazing feedback, and a lot of people have been bringing us their dresses.” The shop has seen a lot of traffic in recent weeks from women outfitting for the Marine Corps Ball, and the ladies said they expect to provide many options come prom season. They are even partnering with other local shops to sell off-season items for a fraction of the retail cost.
Morrison and Harrison are dedicated animal activists and support a number of charities, so they also wanted to incorporate that into their business. When women come in to donate a dress, they may choose to send a check to the charity of their choice in lieu of receiving cash. Otherwise, sellers get 30 percent of the dress’s resale price in cash or 50 percent in store credit. The women are also partnering with charities by offering to give a percentage of sales to nonprofits when people buy a dress for that organization’s event. For example, for every dress bought to wear at the Junior League’s Jingle Bash Bachelor Ball, Del Mar Dress Company will give 20 percent of that sale back to the Junior League. The shop is also partnering with its neighbor, Carruth Cellars, to offer a “happy dress hour” on Fridays, in which shoppers can enjoy hors d’oeuvres and wine. The weekly event begins at 3:30 p.m. and ends at 6 p.m. — or as Morrison says, “’til the wine runs out.” Often dress shops only carry formal attire, but Morrison and

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Solana Beach resident Lisa Harrison often attends parties and philanthropic events, and, like many women, she believes you must look your best and you can’t wear the same dress twice. “It’s fun to have great dresses, but it’s not fun to spend $500 or $1,000 on a dress for a one-time event,” said Harrison, a mother and philanthropist who has 30plus years of retail and wholesale experience. So after going through some friends’ clothing collections and borrowing dresses to prepare for three formal events in a row, Harrison landed a handful of amazing dresses, and she even wore two at one event — taking photos and dining in a long, silk charmeuse gown and then changing halfway through into a shorter ensemble for dancing. When she told her friend, Mindey Morrison, about her successful closet shopping adventures, a light bulb went off in Morrison’s head and the two teamed up to start the Del Mar Dress Company, a shop that opens only on Friday,

Contemporary Japanese flavors in the mix at Eda-mami BY KELLEY CARLSON rom neighboring residents to corporate employees, couples on dates to families with children, Eda-mami offers something for everyone. Described as “modern Japanese with traditional elements” by Sales and Events Coordinator Sandy Choi, the restaurant is casual by day, as beachgoers and businessmen and women from the nearby corporate center drop by for lunch. During pleasant weather, many of them sit outside on the two patios, shaded by umbrellas and surrounded by plants, while observing some of the wildlife from the nearby Los Peñasquitos Lagoon. At other times, patrons opt to sit in the earth-toned main dining room or family room, which are naturally lit by the sun’s rays filtering in through the large windows and simply decorated with artwork depicting foliage. At the sushi bar, guests are entertained by watching the chefs prepare food, finding the latest sports scores on the TV, or overhearing the latest Top 40 hit. But the atmosphere alters at night, as the light dims. Couples frequently sit on the patios, which glow from the fire pits and icicle lights, providing a romantic ambience. The traffic along Carmel Valley Road slows, and the environment becomes more

Families often relax and enjoy leisurely dinners, as their children create artwork with crayons and paper that will later be hung by the host’s desk. “We encourage them to draw pictures,” Choi said. “A lot of them have favorite servers (whom they draw).” The restaurant’s employees often get to know the customers, as there are a number of regulars, some of whom live in the neighborhood. “A lot of servers know the guests’ names, and vice versa,” Choi noted. And regardless of the time of day, it’s always “happy” at Eda-mami, with daylong specials on certain appetizers and sushi, and $3 beer, wine and sake. Among the sushi rolls that may be featured include customer

cheese and spicy tuna; or the healthier Edamame soybeans. The salads consist of options such as Seaweed and Grilled Chicken, while lunch and dinner entrees vary from BBQ Beef Short Rib to Sesami Chicken, and Tonkatsu, a breaded and deepfried pork cutlet. There are also a half-dozen noodle dishes, including Yakisoba. Finally, patrons can wrap up their meal with a dessert such as Green Tea Ice Cream or the Full Moon Night, consisting of mascarpone and layers of infused almond coffee sponge cake. From the children’s menu, kids are able to select an entree such as Salmon Teriyaki, Chicken Katsu, Bulgogi and Tempura, and receive sides of gyoza, rice and miso soup.

No meal over 475 calories is the premise of Carmel Valley chef’s new UTC restaurant Seasons 52 to open on Nov. 19 in UTC BY CLAIRE HARLIN Carmel Valley is the new home to a chef that just might revolutionize the way people eat out. Carmel Valley resident Steve De Barril, 27, just moved to town to bring the ever-expanding Seasons 52 concept to UTC. Known for its menu containing only dishes with 475 calories or less, the restaurant has been a hit in Orange County as well as on the East Coast, and Barril’s franchise — the first in San Diego — is set to open on Nov. 19 at 4505 La Jolla Village Drive. The concept began with the vision of Clifford Pleau, who started Disney World’s California Grill in Orlando in the 1990s, so even though Seasons 52 also got its start in Orlando, it’s truly a “California-born concept,” De Barril said. “It’s really in line with the West Coast values,” De Barril said. “It’s so produce and seafood driven.” The San Diego opening is one of four Seasons 52 openings in California and about 10 nationwide. Simply put, the concept — fresh, healthy and upscale yet inexpensive — has taken off and this is a period of major growth for the restaurant chain. “In all our cities, people have been amazed by what we do and the food and the
value,” De Barril said. “It’s fast growing, but we’re not expanding too fast because we want to make sure we do each one right and are very thorough with each restaurant.” Seasons 52 manages to keep all its menu items under 475 calories by using natural cooking techniques. De Barril has been training his UTC kitchen staff on the wood stove, and teaching how to cook with no butter, cream or deep fryers. “It’s easy that way,” he said. “You just let the food and seasons speak for themselves.” By seasons, De Barril is talking about the restaurant’s menu, which changes four times a year. In addition, a new mini-menu is put forth each week — hence the restaurant’s name — featuring brand new items like soups, flatbreads and fish dishes. Seasons 52 is also known for its signature “mini-indulgence desserts” that only cost a couple of dollars and are served in shot glasses. The restaurant features nine desserts at any given time, and the selection is brought to the table after dinner for guests to choose. “Guests say it’s really the next level of a dining experience, while maintaining pocket books and still being figure conscious,” De Barril said. De Barril has been on the opening management team of several Seasons 52 locations, including Illinois, Orange County and Phoenix, from where he recently relocated. His passion for restaurant life began at age 15 when he started working as a dish-

He quickly moved up the ladder to working as a cook, and he loved the fast-paced feel of the kitchen. “I have this huge sense of accomplishment from working in the kitchen,” he said. “The same sort of feeling people get from racing cars or sky diving.” De Barril said his favorite part of being a chef is the teamwork that ensues in the kitchen. “People are having a fantastic experience in the dining room, but they have no idea what’s going on in the kitchen,” he said. “It’s a high intensity environment, and on top of that, you are working with so

Popular Carmel Valley Swirls to offer unique holiday flavors BY KAREN BILLING The holidays are coming and so are the holiday flavors at Carmel Valley Swirls. Owner Evan Wilensky has some delicious frozen yogurt fare in the works for his newest location at the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. While the creamy pumpkin flavor is already available, customers can keep an eye out for peppermint, egg nog and gingerbread cookie in the coming weeks. “This is a really fun place to come, kids and adults really enjoy it,” said Wilensky. “I want the customers to have a great expeCarmel Valley Swirls owner Evan Wilensky. rience, which we provide here.” Photo/Karen Billing Wilensky, a graduate of Torrey Pines High class of 2002, is the CEO of ESW Investments Inc. and opened his first Swirls shop in Del Mar in 2008. After the Del Mar Swirls shop became such a success, he went on to open Encinitas Swirls in 2009 and Carmel Valley in January of 2012. At Swirls, there are 52 flavors in the mix and 12 on tap on a daily basis. Carmel Valley always has a non-dairy flavor and a no-sugar added flavor. Most of the yogurts are non-fat; there are just a handful of flavors that are low fat. “Yogurt is super healthy,” Wilensky said, pointing out that he keeps yogurt’s health claims to fame posted on the wall. It’s a good source of protein, can help lower cholesterol, improves digestion, increases metabolism and stimulates the immune system, Wilensky said. In the self-serve style, customers can fill their cup however they want, as well as sample flavors before they commit. There are always a variety of 30-plus toppings in addition to fresh fruit prepared daily. Wilensky ensures that his stores are kept “surgically clean”—if a dollop of yogurt misses the cup or a hunk of cookie dough gets separated from the rest they are swiftly cleaned up by the staff. Wilensky said he knows the customers appreciate the cleanliness as well as the taste of his frozen yogurt. He was grateful to be voted number one favorite Best Yogurt by this paper’s Readers’ Choice Best of North Coast 2012 contest, as well as third in the Best Dessert category. “I want to thank the readers for voting us best frozen yogurt,” Wilensky said. “I love interacting with the customers and serving up a healthy, quality product.” Learn more about Swirls at CarmelValleySwirls.com.

She also plans to do side-by-side adult and kids classes, giving parents the opportunity to take a class at the same time as their children. Plans are for an annual recital to be held in June,

PLAYHOUSE continued from page B1 through with very little spoken dialogue. “It’s a contemporary story that takes place in our world and is multi-layered with psychedelic rock arrangements. It’s visually told through a real team effort of choreography, set designs, puppets, a great cast and wonderful projection-artist Sean Nieuwenhuis (“Jesus Christ Superstar”). He does some great things with Robert Brill (“Creditors,” “The Wiz”), my longtime scenic designer, and Basil Twist (“A Midsummer Night’s Dream”), one of the county’s most eminent puppet artists. “Music Director Ron Melrose, who worked with me on ‘Jersey Boys,’ is very inventive and imaginative, but faithful to The Lips’ songs. I’m also thrilled to have cast members Paul Nolan who played Jesus in ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ at the Playhouse, and Kimiko Glenn, who was the princess here in ‘The Nightingale.’ ” Beginning at the Playhouse in 1983, McAnuff has directed 30-40 productions. His resume also includes work on films, TV and Broadway. He’s earned more than 200 awards, including two Tonys as Best Director (Musical) for “Big River” (1983) and “The Who’s Tommy” (1993), and he plays in the Red Dirt Band. McAnuff is currently winding up five years as the Artistic Director at Canada’s Stratford Shakespeare Festi-
November 8, 2012 val. He said walking the stage once again at the Playhouse brings back many memories, but at the moment, he’s all about “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.” “I think the audience will find it an inspiring story with a lot of heart. People seem to have a strong emotional reaction to it. I think Wayne and the band will capture that in this production. It combines science and art in a fresh way and belongs here in the 21st century.”
VALITAR continued from page B1 foot “Valitar Kingdom” at the fairgrounds also has tents for concessions, warm-up and makeup facilities for the stars, a VIP area and stables, where special attention is given to horses in terms of their diet, grooming, shoeing and comfort. Seven shows are planned per week, on Wednesday, Thursday
and Friday evenings, and matinee and evening showings on Saturday and Sundays, through New Year’s Eve. There are 14 acts, and each horse is in a maximum of two acts per show. Once “Valitar’s” run is finished at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, it will travel to five cities throughout 2013. According to Hemmerly, there are international plans for 2014. Ticket options for “Valitar” include general
admission starting at $39 for children and $65 for adults, as well VIP. The VIP Lounge includes hosted appetizers and cocktails 60 minutes before the show, premier seating, desserts during intermission, a commemorative program, and a behindthe-scenes tour with a one-on-one meet-andgreet with the cast — humans and horses. Also, according to Hemmerly, about $1 per ticket will be donated to
Helen Woodward’s Equine and Large Animal Hospital, as well as its Therapeutic Riding Program. Tickets for “Valitar’s” world premiere in Del Mar are available at www. ticketmaster.com.

The power of pom The Kitchen Shrink
BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Those gorgeous magenta spheroids, eye candy in the produce aisle, pull you in and beckon to be taken home. Although high maintenance and labor intensive, they are worth every painstaking effort needed to extract the tiny ruby jewels. Sheer gustatory bliss, I promise, you will never meet a pomegranate you didn’t love. Here’s a primer to help you get the most and best from this seasonal autumn jewel. In the beginning The pomegranate is an old soul, making many cam-
eo appearances in the Bible, and revered by ancient societies as a sacred symbol. Some biblical scholars believe that the pomegranate was the true forbidden fruit, not the apple that Eve plucked from the tree of Knowledge. Egyptians filled their royal sarcophagi with pomegranates to bestow eternal life on the dead, while this symbol of fertility was used in many exotic dishes. Spanish settlers imported precious pomegranates to California in the 1760s, providing a perfect Mediterranean clime to flourish. The hundreds of species of the mighty pomegranate that also come in designer shades of yellow, green and white varieties are enjoyed by cultures around the world. Pom’s the Bomb Low cal, high fiber pomegranates are a powerhouse of heart-healthy, cancer-fighting antioxidants (beating the green tea and red wine competition) that have been found to keep bad cholesterol at bay, put-

Packed with potassium, Vitamin C and fiber this exotic warrior is fall’s super fruit, especially before the dreaded flu season.

The Seedy Side of Pomegranates There is an art to deseeding a pomegranate, extracting the 600 or more tangy, juicy seeds from the pithy membranes and pulp. Lop off the crown and toss into your compost pile. Score the rind without cutting through to the seeds. Soak the fruit in a bowl of icy cold-water face down for about 10 minutes. Peel away
