Local attorney brings privacy case to U.S. Supreme Court Pat Ford and other experts to examine how Fourth Amendment applies to smart phones

■ Local resident to accompany friend on a trip to mark 70th anniversary of the Battle of Peleliu. A1.

By Joe Tash Should police be allowed to search the smart phones of anyone they arrest without first obtaining a search warrant? That issue is at the heart of a case that a Carmel Valley attorney will soon bring before the U.S. Supreme Court. Pat Ford has been practicing law in San Diego for three decades, and most of his work has centered on making appeals on behalf of those convicted of crimes in state and federal courts. On April 29, he will make his first appearance before the highest court in the land, on behalf of a young San Diego man convicted in a gang-related shooting. At issue, said Ford and other legal experts, is whether the Fourth Amendment prohibition against

unreasonable searches and seizures requires police officers to obtain a search warrant signed by a judge before searching through the smart phone of a person who is arrested. Ford contends that a warrant should be required, and the outcome of the Pat Ford case is significant on multiple levels — it could affect how police approach searches of smart phones and other digital devices throughout the United States, and also determine whether Ford’s client, David Leon Riley, re-

ceives a new trial. Riley is currently serving a sentence of 15 years to life in state prison for his conviction on charges including shooting at an occupied vehicle, along with an enhancement for gang involvement. “This is a good chance for the U.S. Supreme Court to examine citizens’ rights to privacy in the digital age,” said Ford, 55, who lives in Carmel Valley and maintains an office in downtown San Diego. “Technology for all its benefits is not a friend of privacy and we have to continue to balance safety and privacy interests.” “I think it’s going to be one of the most significant cases on Fourth Amendment rights in some time,” said Alex Kreit, an associate professor at San Diego’s Thomas

Jefferson Law School. Since the 1970s, said Kreit, U.S. courts have recognized the right of police to search the “person” of an arrestee for weapons or contraband, even for an arrest on a traffic violation or other minor offense, without first obtaining a warrant. That search would include looking through the detainee’s pockets or wallet, and items in his or her immediate vicinity. The question is whether the same rule should apply to devices such as smart phones, which contain vast amounts of deeply personal information. A search of a smart phone “is arguably a much greater invasion of your privacy,” Kreit said. ”Some-

By Kristina Houck A month after voters passed Proposition B, the Solana Beach City Council on March 12 adopted the official results of the special election. Proposition B was adopted by almost 51 percent of voters Feb. 11, according to official election results from the San Diego County Registrar of Voters. The measure received 1,947 “Yes” votes and 1,875 “No” votes, easing restrictions on private parties at Fletcher Cove Community Center, which overlooks the ocean at 133 Pacific Ave. The council on Nov. 6 unanimously voted to call a roughly $200,000 special election instead of adopting the use policy. Originally slated for the consent calendar, comments from two members of the public pulled the item during the council meeting. “I just wanted to please ask the council to implement Prop B in an expeditious and fair way,” said resident Dan Cham-

bers. “We look forward to being able to use the community center.” Solana Beach resident Mary Jane Boyd — who helped put the initiative on the ballot along with former Solana Beach Mayor Thomas Golich and resident James Nelson — noted that almost 50 percent of voters headed to the polls or casted mail-in ballots, which she called a “high voter turnout.” “Proposition B was written so that the city could indeed test its provisions for several months and then, if necessary, use the June or November election to ask the voters to make adjustments,” Boyd said. “However, that choice has been removed. “Now that the election is over, we ask that you, as our City Council, provide the leadership to bring the community back together and move us forward in a spirit of reconciliation.” Councilman David Zito disagreed that almost 50 percent is

a high turnout, especially when compared to the city’s turnout in the November 2012 election. According to the San Diego County Registrar of Voters, 43.59 percent of Solana Beach voters casted a ballot in the special election, compared to 84.81 percent in the November 2012 election. “Having the election as opposed to a council adoption was incredibly appropriate given the closeness of the election,” said Councilman David Zito, who was the only council member who commented on the item. However, Zito added that more voters would have likely participated if the issue had been added to the ballot in June or November. “It would have not only saved money if we hadn’t been forced to call a special election, we would have had a much better representation across the entire city of what the actual opinion is of this particular issue.”

By Joe Tash A judge has ruled against the San Diego chapter of the Sierra Club in the latest skirmish of a legal battle over the use of portions of the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The club sued the California Coastal Commission in January, alleging that the commission violated state law when it approved two permits for the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which runs the state-owned fairgrounds. At issue is whether the fairgrounds can continue to use part of a dirt lot — called the east overflow lot — along Interstate 5 for parking, seasonal pumpkin and Christmas tree sales and other activities. The Sierra Club and other environmental groups believe a portion of the east overflow lot should preserved as wetlands. But the 22nd DAA, in a deal with the Coastal Commission, agreed to spend $5 million to restore its south overflow lot along Jimmy Durante Boulevard to wetlands habitat, in exchange for being allowed to continue to use the full east overflow lot. The commission approved the agreement and necessary permits in November. On Thursday, March 13, San Diego Superior Court Judge Katherine Bacal denied the Sierra Club’s request for a stay and temporary restraining order regarding those Coastal Commission permits. “We were pleased (by the ruling) because the judge recognized that there wasn’t an imminent threat to sensitive resources,” said 22nd DAA board member David Watson. “We believe the permits were issued correctly and the Coastal Commission did the correct analysis when they issued the permits.” The Sierra Club’s attorney could not be reached for comment. The next hearing regarding the lawsuit is set for July 25.

Local geologist co-stars in reality show

By Kristina Houck A rock collector as a child, Eric Drummond never thought he would be doing what he loved on television. Now, the longtime local resident co-stars in Animal Planet’s “Ice Cold Gold,” a reality show that follows seven gold miners prospecting and digging in Greenland. “I couldn’t have imagined this happening,” said Drummond. “This is a fantastic experience!” Moxie Pictures claims its 29-member team is the first and largest television crew to produce a series in Greenland. The country’s

remote location, absence of roads, weather and 24hour sunlight are just a few of the challenges the group faces throughout the series. “It’s challenging. It’s very challenging,” Drummond said. “Prospecting is a very risky business, but when you find something, it’s hugely rewarding.” The second season kicked off March 6. For season two, the group returns to the “Red Zone,” a huge ruby deposit they discovered during the first season. “I won’t go into detail, but I guarantee that [viewers] are going to see some amazing things — not just


in what we find, but the culture, the areas that we prospect, the things we look for,” Drummond said. “It’s going to be a huge adventure.” A geologist for more than 30 years, Drummond studied geology at New England College in New Hampshire. He started his career in the oil industry as a petroleum exploration geologist. He currently works as a Rancho Santa Fe-based consultant in hydrogeology, engineering geology and mining industries.

PRIVACY continued from page AA1 one just has to think about what’s on their own phone to really understand that.” Ford said in Riley’s case, police could easily have obtained a warrant before examining his phone, because there was no threat to officer safety, or of destruction of evidence at the scene of the 2009 arrest in San Diego’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Riley was pulled over for having expired tags on his Lexus, and officers later determined his driver’s license was also expired. A search of the car before it was impounded turned up two loaded firearms. Based on text messages found on the phone and other evidence, police suspected Riley was a gang member, and they sought to connect him to a recent gang incident in which shots had been fired at an occupied vehicle, although no one was hit by the gunfire. Photos and videos found in the phone were used against Riley during his trial, including an image of him standing in front of a vehicle believed to have been used in the shooting. Ford said the prosecution’s case against Riley was

weak, because none of the four eyewitnesses to the shooting could identify him. But circumstantial evidence, including the material from the phone, was used to convict him. The goal of the appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is to get a new trial for Riley, “where they would have to prove his guilt without any evidence they got from the phone,” Ford said. “We think they’d have a substantially weaker case without that evidence.” Ford declined to discuss his thoughts on Riley’s involvement in the shooting, or his possible gang ties. “(The case) is a statement that some things are more important than the truth,” he said. “We don’t want to live in a society where police can indiscriminately search our belongings and justify it after the fact by finding evidence of a crime.” “We’re looking for a finding requiring the police to apply for a search warrant before they search people’s cell phones,” he said. Ford has teamed up with a Stanford University law professor, Jeff Fisher, an experienced Supreme Court litigator who will actually present oral arguments before the high court. Ford will also attend

GEOLOGIST continued from page AA1 the show, Drummond had to leave behind his wife, job, two cats and life in San Diego to film in Greenland for two months. He left it all behind for another two months this past summer to film season two. “It’s a huge commitment,” he said. “It’s a huge sacrifice to just leave your home. “But as a geologist, getting the chance to go to Greenland and explore and prospect is an opportunity of a lifetime. It’s something I felt was perfect for me. It was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.” Drummond said he hopes viewers, especially young viewers, watch the

the hearing. Just getting the court to hear the case was a major accomplishment, because each year, the court receives tens of thousands of petitions and only accepts a couple of dozen cases, Ford said. “It’s an unbelievable coup.” In his written brief — which has been joined by 11 supportive “friend of the court” briefs by a broad range of organizations — Ford wrote that the framers of the Constitution drafted the Fourth Amendment in response to an “odious” Colonial-era practice of soldiers rummaging through people’s personal effects and papers for any incriminating items they might find. “The information on smart phones… reveals the thoughts, wonders and concerns of a phone’s owner …. The protection the Fourth Amendment has always afforded to such writings and other expressions should not evaporate — more than two hundred years after the Founding — simply because that information can now be reduced to electronic charges in a computer chip and carried in one’s pocket,” the brief states.

cessful in our endeavors and prospects, but also I’d like to see young people learn a little bit about geology, maybe spark an interest in some young people and make them want to study science. That’s the real reward for me.” Ice Cold Gold airs at 10 p.m. on Thursdays on Animal Planet. “We’re doing this for real,” Drummond said. “We’re doing what we do. We’re not actors. We’re miners and construction workers and geologists and drillers. It’s a real situation. I’m proud of that and I think it will show well on TV.” For more information about the show, visit

Del Mar to apply for permit to install parking meters near Seagrove Park By Kristina Houck Visitors may soon have more parking access to Seagrove Park. In a 4-1 vote, the council on March 17 directed staff to proceed with an application for a coastal development permit to install six parking meters on the west side of Ocean Avenue, adjacent from the park. Staff noted the city received several calls and letters, as well as a petition, in opposition to the proposed installation of parking meters — mostly from nearby apartment residents who use the spaces. Although located by residences, the west side of the street, where the spaces are located, is not zoned residential. “I have mixed feelings about this because I think we need more parking and this is adjacent to the park,” said Councilman Don Mosier. “It’s unfortunate that residents will be impacted by this change … but the parking problem was created before we were even incorporated as a city. These buildings were built without sufficient parking capacity.” Councilman Terry Sinnott casted the sole dissenting vote. “I come down on the idea that this is a residential community, primarily,” he said. “The history is interesting. The apartment complex was there prior to Seagrove Park.” The coin and credit card meters would charge $3 for parking per hour for a maximum of four hours. Paid parking would be enforced from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. The city’s planning and community development director will hold a hearing and make a determination regarding the application.

Del Mar City Council to consider regulating e-cigarette use By Kristina Houck Days after neighboring Solana Beach officially adopted an ordinance that bans the use of electronic cigarettes wherever smoking is prohibited, the Del Mar City Council requested staff to draft a similar ordinance. The item, which was approved 5-0, was included on the council’s March 17 consent calendar. E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that simulate tobacco smoking, but do not contain tobacco. Users inhale vaporized liquid that may or may not contain nicotine and can include a variety of other flavors. Supporters argue e-cigarettes are less harmful than tobacco cigarettes, while critics contend they encourage use by young people. Although the actual health risks are a subject of debate, the American Lung Association has called for regulation of these devices to protect public health, citing two initial studies that show e-cigarettes emit chemicals such as formaldehyde, benzene and tobacco-specific nitrosamines. Current state law prohibits e-cigarette sales to minors but does not regulate where the devices can be used. In addition to Solana Beach, Carlsbad, Poway and Vista have enacted similar regulations. El Cajon, Encinitas, La Mesa, Lemon Grove, Oceanside and San Diego are currently developing new regulations or policies.

Solana Beach City Council to consider requiring retailers of electronic smoking devices to obtain a license By Kristina Houck After officially adopting an ordinance that bans the use of electronic cigarettes wherever smoking is prohibited, the Solana Beach City Council on March 13 agreed to consider requiring retailers of electronic smoking devices to obtain a license. The council on Feb. 12 voted to amend the city’s existing smoking ordinance to prohibit the use of e-cigarettes, and all similar devices, in all public places where smoking is banned. A couple of speakers on March 13 urged council members to take an additional step and amend the city’s existing tobacco retail permit ordinance to require shops that only sell ecigarettes and similar devices to also hold a license. Concerned about similar stores opening up in Solana Beach, resident Peggy Walker pointed out that two stores in Encinitas do not sell tobacco, just e-cigarettes and other electronic devices. “Because they don’t sell tobacco, they’re not required to have a tobacco retail permit,” Walker said. “I’m concerned

and many people in the tobacco prevention and drug prevention community are concerned about this because … the simple device called the e-cigarette appeared on the scene a couple years ago and now adolescent smoking is on the rise again.” “You don’t have a standalone store yet in Solana Beach, so it’s very preemptive on our part to suggest it,” added Judi Strang, executive director of the San Dieguito Alliance for a Drug Free Youth. “But on the other hand, wouldn’t it be nice to just get it added to your tobacco retailer’s permit and be done with it?” At the direction of the council, staff will bring the issue before the council at a future meeting. “It’s an added step,” said City Attorney Johanna Canlas. “It’s a procedural process. We will have information on who they are, where they are, the type of business that they are doing.” “It makes them jump through another hoop,” added Mayor Thomas Campbell.

Local resident to accompany friend on trip to mark 70th anniversary of the Battle of Peleliu “My dad never talked about the war,” said Marsden, whose father served in K Company of the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division. “I knew he was in the war, but that was about all I knew. I only knew bits and pieces.” As his research unveiled a part of his father he never knew, Marsden said he has grown closer to his dad. “I didn’t have a real close relationship with my father. He was older when he had me and he already had four kids before me,” said Marsden, the fifth of six children. “I didn’t spend a lot of time with him, so I spent a lot of time with my mother. She defined who he was. It’s been a redefinition of who he is. In that, I’ve been able to redefine who I am.” Marsden has considered visiting Peleliu for the past two years. After sharing his idea at a local ManKind Project support group, Rudin volunteered to join him on his journey. “I’m not too impulsive, but I just said, ‘I’ll go,’” Rudin said. “I want to accompany John and be supportive of his process.” Marsden and Rudin will leave for their 16-day trip on Sept. 22. They plan to camp on the beach for a couple of days, and go kayaking and scuba diving. Other than that, they are not drawing up an itinerary. “What I’ve been working on doing is not putting too much expectation into it,” said Marsden, who noted he plans to do some-

Photos/Kristina Houck thing special to honor his father. “It’s more about the experience. What happens will happen.” The two have known each other for almost three years. While preparing for the trip, they’ve learned they have a lot in common. Both are currently health and safety instructors who have served in the military. Born in Michigan, Marsden, 48, spent six years in the U.S. Navy as a nuclear mechanic on submarines. A Virginia native, Rudin served in the Israeli Army for a year and a half. He will celebrate his 60th birthday during the trip to Peleliu. Having both served in the military, the pair looks forward to paying their respects to those who served in WWII. “Here are people, before their brains are fully developed, who rose up to the call of duty,” said Rudin as he gestured toward a framed photo of K Company. “They went and they served their country under horrific circumstances for reasons that defy logic, because this was not a real strategic goal. It was more of an ego-driven goal to take this island.” The Battle of Peleliu was a controversial battle because of the island’s questionable strategic value and the high casualty rate. “This battle was as fierce as Iwo Jima, but nearly never talked about,” Marsden added. “Right after they invaded, [Gen. Douglas] MacArthur invaded the Philippines, so MacArthur took all the headlines.”

Rattlesnake calls in the county triple with warmer weather The number of rattlesnake calls to the County’s Department of Animal Services (DAS) has more than tripled compared to the same time period last year. Since Jan. 1, DAS has received 78 calls from the community. Last year, only 24 calls came in during that time frame. “Our very mild winter and several heat spells are drawing the rattlesnakes out of their dens a little earlier this year,” said DAS Director Dawn Danielson.


Rattlesnakes typically come out of hibernation in the spring and DAS recommends you discourage them from taking up residence in your yard by getting rid of wood piles, mice and rats. “If you see a rattlesnake on your property, keep an eye on it from a safe distance and call us,” said DAS Deputy Director Dan DeSousa. “We’ll impound the snake and remove it to an area where it doesn’t pose a risk to the

Eight Marines received the Medal of Honor for their service during the Battle of Peleliu — five were decorated posthumously. “War is hell. It’s connected with real people,” Rudin said. “Here, 70 years after that happened, there’s still healing. There’s still processing. That’s a long time, and there’s still unfinished chapters and ramifications to this day.” Marsden recently discovered that his grandfather, who died before he was born, served in World War I. After he returns from his trip to Peleliu, he plans to research his grandfather’s military history. “What happened in those trenches in France that affected my dad, and what happened on this island that affected me?” Marsden asked. “That war didn’t end in 1945. That war still goes on today. It’s fought in the battles of kids and grandkids and greatgrandkids. These battles never end.” “Maybe the shooting ends — ” Rudin added. “ — but the healing keeps going on forever,” said Marsden, who wears his father’s military tags around his neck.

The United States Marines, including Pfc. Robert Noel Marsden, landed on the island of Peleliu during World War II almost seven decades ago. Sept. 15, 2014 will mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Peleliu. Marsden’s son, John Marsden of Rancho Penasquitos, along with his friend, Jonathan Rudin of Carmel Valley, will travel to the island in September to commemorate the battle, which had among the highest casualty rates in the Pacific war. “I would love to have just an hour to talk to him about it and ask questions, but I’m never going to be able to do that,” said Marsden, whose father died at the age of 69 in 1991. “We’re going to be there 70 years after the battle. It’s kind of a cathartic experience for me.” Codenamed Operation Stalemate II, the Battle of Peleliu was fought between the U.S. and Japan from Sept. 15 to Nov. 27, 1944 on the island of Peleliu in present day Palau. Although it is considered an American victory, military records indicate that 1,252 Marines were killed and 5,274 wounded, and that 542 Army soldiers were killed and 2,736 wounded. Japanese deaths totaled more than 10,600. So they could learn more about his service, Marsden’s older brother requested their father’s military records after their father died. Using the records, Marsden began to learn more about the Battle of Peleliu and trace his father’s footsteps.

Melero Boutique & Gallery closes its doors at Flower Hill By Kristina Houck A year after opening a second store at Flower Hill Promenade near Del Mar, both Melero Boutique & Gallery locations are now closing its doors. Ruth Melero opened the first Melero Boutique & Gallery in Little Italy more than four years ago. She opened her Flower Hill store last March, which also offered a variety of women’s apparel and accessories. She announced the closing of both locations early March. “We appreciate your eternal support these past five years,” read a March 5 post on the company’s Facebook page. The same message was sent to the company’s email list on March 6. “Both our locations will now be closed and all merchandise is now on sale at our Little Italy location.” Calls and emails to Melero were not returned by press time. The Flower Hill store has already been closed. The phone number still works for the San Diego store, which is located at 1918 India St., but calls go straight to the answering machine.

North Torrey Pines Bridge to close March 21 through March 25 North Torrey Pines Bridge will be closed March 21 through March 25. To allow for roadway improvements by Del Mar’s bridge contractor, Flatiron West, Inc., North Torrey Pines Road from the Torrey Pines State Beach parking lot to Carmel Valley Road will be closed from 9 p.m. March 21 through 6 a.m. March 25. During this time, detours will divert southbound traffic to Carmel Valley Road and northbound traffic to Genesee Avenue, via Interstate 5. Pedestrians and bicyclists will be diverted around the closure via Carmel Valley Road and the Torrey Pines State Beach parking lot. To warn drivers of the impending work, traffic controls and flagmen are in place. Pedestrians are not to use North Torrey Pines Bridge or cross the railroad tracks in the area of the bridge during the project. For questions, contact Del Mar’s Public Works Department at GroupPublicWorks@, or call Public Works Deputy Director Joe Bride at 858-755-3294 ext. 417.

Del Mar Mesa planning board briefs; March 13 meeting By Suzanne Evans “There will be no mandatory water conservation this year; San Diego has been great at conserving,” said the city’s public utilities customer advocate David Akin in a March 13 presentation to the Del Mar Mesa Community Planning Board. According to the city’s water conservation site, the Water Authority is not applying water-use restrictions this year; however, it continues to monitor hydrologic conditions in the southwest, encouraging residents and businesses to use water efficiently. For information on water conservation, meter reading, checking for a leak, or to pay a water bill electronically, visit If you think a meter charge is too high, contact David Akin: or 619-533-4275. To report a water line leak, meter leak or pressure problem, call the Water Department’s Emergency Hotline 619-515-3525. ***** Installation of an all-way stop sign at the corner of Del Vino and Rancho Toyon roads continues to be a priority for the Del Mar Mesa planning board. Board member Lisa Ross said she always stops at that intersection, and the other day, if her car had arrived 30 seconds earlier, a child speeding through the intersection on a bike would have been hit. “Someone will get killed,” she said at the board’s March 13 meeting. “In general, the San Diego Fire Department won’t approve stop signs because they reduce response time. But, Del Mar Mesa had specially designed “humps” that conformed to their emergency vehicles and they approved those for a dangerous blind intersection that also includes an equestrian crossing — we had to slow traffic down there. Boardmember Paul Metcalf is investigating whether that can be done now,” Ross said in an email after the meeting.

By Jeanne McKinney Local resident Major General Melvin G. Spiese understands the business of being a military superpower. Spiese, who recently retired as deputy commanding general of 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, spent more than 36 years leaving a lasting footprint, labeled “visionaryâ€? and “impactful.â€? He assesses the impact of the re-alignment and downsizing of all U.S. military services announced by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel from the Pentagon on Feb. 24, 2014. Question: Secretary Hagel stated, “We are entering an era where American dominance on the seas, in the skies, and in space can no longer be taken for granted.â€? How do you read Sec. Hagel’s statement? Is this indicative of a military in decline? Maj. Gen. Spiese (MGS): “No, it’s indicative of a proliferation of ever increasing threats. We’ve seen massive proliferation of anti-aircraft weapons now as a consequence of some of the things that have happened in Libya. We could see weapons of mass destruction make their way out of Syria. The Iranians are looking at long-range, antiship weapons – we know the Chinese have been working very hard at anti-access, area denial capabilities. As we’ve increased military capability‌[our] adversaries have been doing the same thing. We haven’t yet developed all the weapons and capabilities and systems to put ourselves back in front in every respect.â€? Question: On March 01, 2013, steep and abrupt automatic spending cuts were imposed on DOD under the mechanism of sequestration. This amounted to $37 billion in more cuts. Can you explain how sequestration targets our military and redefines our ability to maintain dominance? MGS: “We saw sequestration hit at a time we were trying to manage a reduction in the budget anyway. We simply weren’t able to plan for it. There are certain things in the budget that are just impossible to work around and it took a lot of latitude and flexibility away from our leaders to manage things. For example, we have to pay manpower bills, period. These unforeseen reductions come from what are referred to as hard currency accounts‌and those happen to be typically readiness accounts.â€? Question: In your Marine Corps tenure, how have defense spending cuts reduced or enhanced the success of military operations? MGS: “Generally speaking, those [operations] have been funded OK because those are the people who are out on the line. What ends up happening, is everybody behind that suffers and that’s where we start getting [decreased] ability to train – even to maintain our manning levels inside the services.â€? Question: Secretary Hagel said, “In the short term, the only way to implement sequestration is to sharply reduce spending on readiness and modernization, which would almost certainly result in a hollow force, one that is not ready, one that is not capable of fulfilling assigned missions.â€? MGS: “That’s a very accurate assessment.â€? Question: In what ways will a sharp reduction in readiness and modernization affect our ability to project U.S. power? MGS: “We’re going to be pushed to the point where the focus of readiness is going to be on units that are in the cycle to deploy – carrier battle groups, units that rotate overseas, and then some who are designated as contingency forces and [then] everything else starts carving out. Other things start happening as well. We can’t maintain equipment, aircraft, and ships. So everything [goes] to those things that are forward deployed or on call [leaving] a huge gap for the next tier of capabilities.â€?



Q&A: Major General Mel Spiese weighs in on 2015 defense budget cuts




Del Mar resident to receive Reagan/Thal Legacy Award from Alzheimer’s Association By Kristina Houck Del Mar resident Sandy Braff will receive the Reagan/ Thal Legacy Award from the San Diego/Imperial Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association at the 17th annual Memories in the Making Art Auction March 21 at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club. Braff has led an Alzheimer’s Association-sponsored support group for caregivers for 25 years. “I still can’t believe it,” said Braff, who moved to Del Mar in 1983. “I love what I do. I love working with the caregivers. It’s become a total passion. I’ve fallen in love with this population. To be getting an award because I fell in love and love the work I do, it just seems like I’m getting a birthday present and it’s not my birthday.” Braff began leading the group when she was hired at a social services agency in Vista in the 1980s. The person who previously held her position founded the group more than 30 years ago. “I kind of fell into it,” she said. “It’s the best thing that happened.” The caregiver support group was going to be disbanded by the agency when Braff left to open her own practice about seven years later. Therefore, she continued to facilitate the group as a volunteer. “They were going to stop the group, and I couldn’t see that happening,” she recalled. “It’s so important for these people to have a place to come to — to pour out their hearts and talk about things that only the people in the group understand. People outside, their family and their friends, don’t really understand what a caregiver dealing with Alzheimer’s is going through.” Today, the group remains free and open to loved ones

Sandy Braff caring for family members living with Alzheimer’s disease. It meets from 1:303:30 p.m. every Thursday at Vista Gardens. “There’s a great sense of community in that group,” Braff said. “It’s a very cohesive, wonderful group.” A licensed marriage and family therapist, Braff began her career in early child development, a field she studied in her native country of South Africa. After a brief stint at a preschool in London, she moved to the United States in 1967 and later earned a master’s in counseling from

San Diego State University. “I always wanted to help people in some way,” said Braff, who co-authored “Staying Connected While Letting Go: The Paradox of Alzheimer’s Caregiving.” “I feel there’s a big part of me that can empathize and identify with people’s issues.” Since retiring from her practice eight years ago, Braff has continued to facilitate the weekly group she began leading 25 years ago. She also leads two monthly groups from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month at Sunrise at La Costa, and from 1:30-3 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month at Sunrise of La Jolla. Both groups are co-sponsored by the hosting facilities and the Alzheimer’s Association. “They’re basically having a daily crisis. There’s always something going on that they have to deal

with,” said Braff about her group members. “Yet underneath all this sorrow and sadness, I see a lot of strength, a lot of resilience. They get up and keep doing this.” The Memories in the Making Art Auction will begin at 6:30 p.m. March 21 at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe. The event will feature a silent auction, live auction, food and drink stations, and live acoustic music by the local band, Ottopilot. Proceeds will support programs and services for the more than 60,000 San Diegans battling Alzheimer’s disease, as well as advance critical research for a cure.

CCA Cyber Defense Team wins San Diego Mayor’s Cyber Cup For the first time, Canyon Crest Academy Cyber Defense Team, led by CCA teacher Michael Remington, won the San Diego Mayor’s Cyber Cup on March 15 at UC San Diego Supercomputer Center. The six members of CCA’s Cyber defense team attended the competition. The San Diego Mayor’s Cyber Cup defense competition is sponsored by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) as one of its science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) outreach initializes. It is a challenging competition between teams of middle and high school students from all of California. Acting as network and local machine administrators, these students respond, protect and defend their network and computers against cyber-attacks. Using the same systems that professional network administrators train and certify on, these exceptional students exercise their impressive skills while learning teamwork, cooperation in a workplace-like environment, and leadership in a competitive environment. At the same time, they are challenged to a wide variety of cryography and computer forensics problems ranging from decrypting messages to recovering damaged files. The competition fosters a spirit of teamwork, ethical behavior, and effective communication both within and across teams. The finalists in March 15 competition represent the best of almost 30 individual teams from California. Todd Gloria, former interim mayor of San Diego, and San Diego City Council President, announced the first, second, third place awards.

public.” If you live in the county’s unincorporated areas or the cities of Del Mar, San Diego, or Solana Beach, call Animal Services at (619) 236-2341 for help removing rattlesnakes. Animal Services advises when walking anywhere snakes might be to stay aware of your surroundings. Don’t get distracted by your cell phone. If you’re walking your dog, DeSousa suggests you keep it on a leash. It is the law and it also allows you

to pull your dog away if you encounter a snake. If you encounter one of the five varieties of rattlesnakes found in the county, give it space. Calmly back away from it, leave it alone and let it go on its way. If bitten, call 911 and remove any constricting clothing or accessories, such as rings or watchbands. To avoid encounters with rattlesnakes, the Department of Animal Services suggests these steps: •Wear sturdy hiking boots with ankle support so that your feet are protected. •Stay on paths and trails. Avoid tall grass, weeds and brush where snakes may hide.

Accomplished Scripps cardiologist devoted to identifying heart-related problems before they become life threatening By Kathy Day From the moment you meet Dr. John Rogers, you are taken by his good heart. And it’s not just because he’s a cardiologist.

Or take a gander at his collection of Bugs Bunny animation cells – medicinerelated, of course. Better yet, listen to the longtime Carmel Valley resident talk about his patients, his family and the foundation that offers free cardiac screening for teens and you want to stick around and hear more. The son of a police officer and a nurse who grew up in south Orange County, he said he knew as a child that he wanted to be a doctor. “I asked for doctor’s kits every year and I loved

As he spoke, he held up a small device about a third the size of an AAA battery – the world’s smallest implantable cardiac monitoring device. It enables wireless remote monitoring through the Carelink Network so that if the patient has any type of cardiac irregularity the doctor will receive an alert. In February, Rogers was the first physician to implant Medtronic’s LINQ ICM into a 71-year-old San Diegan who had a history of heart palpitations and a previous heart valve replacement. In the press release announcing the implant, Rogers said the man had a local anesthetic before the LINQ ICM was inserted through a 1 centimeter incision on his chest. “The entire process took about 10 minutes and he was able to go home immediately after.” Now, with the advent of cell phones that can receive the information, companies are even including phones with the device packages. “Technology allows us to diagnose more accurately and more quickly to get on to treating our patients faster and more directly,” he said. Ask him what he’s passionate about beyond being in the clinical setting and he’ll take you into the world of the Eric Paredes Save a Life Foundation (www.EPSavealife. org), a nonprofit that screens teens for cardiac issues. He helped establish the organization when a Scripps Green nurse’s son, Eric, died from sudden cardiac arrest – an abnormality in the heart’s electrical system that can happen without symptoms or warning signs. After Eric’s death in 2009, he spoke to his mother Rhina “who had no answers about how to go on,” he recalled. From that sprang the foundation, which holds free EKG screenings for youth throughout the year and ultimately wants to equip all schools with automated external defibrillators (AED) and provide CPR/ AED training to staff and students. To date, Rogers said, they have identified about 100 teens with the potentially life-threatening condition. They get the word out through schools, with some coaches making the test mandatory and some teachers offering extra credit to students who complete it.

They also partnered with KUSI’s Prep Pigskin Report and encourage people to tell others. “If 10 friends tell 10 friends, we can spread the word more easily,” Rogers said. “The foundation has been a calling for me. It is a lot of work and a lot of fun. While it is unfortunate that we have to tell parents their children may have a problem, it is rewarding because we can also tell them this can be fixed.” While his work might seem to get in the way of his ability to find personal time, Rogers puts his priorities in this order: family, God and country. His wife, Susan DeCristofaro Rogers, is department chair, associate professor and academic director of the Point Loma Nazarene University Early Childhood Learning Center. They have been married for 31 years and have a son and daughter, both college graduates. Rogers smiled, adding they also have a 14-year-old pug and three cats – well, almost three. The newest family member, an Abyssinian kitten, has yet to move in. A longtime Scout leader, he said one of his favorite things is teaching children’s baptism classes with Susan at their church. He also gets a kick out of reading comic books – the Hulk is his favorite, which one might figure out from the fact that he has a life-size caricature of the superhero standing in the corner of his office. “I didn’t like to read when I was younger,” he said. In an effort to get him to read the Classics, his father bought him a set of the Classics Illustrated in comic book form and he was hooked. “I still read comics to unwind.” He also enjoys scuba diving in La Jolla Cove, Coronado, Maui and Belize, or hiking in the rainforests of Belize and in Yosemite. “I wake up excited every day,” Rogers said. “I get to do surgery, see patients in my office and develop long-term relationships with them. I also get to run downstairs and help save lives. It’s the best of all worlds.” “Save Your Teen in 2014” upcoming screenings: •April 27 – Scripps Ranch High School; •June 1 – Granite Hills High School; •July 26 – The Rock Academy/Church, Point Loma; •Sept. 28 – La Jolla; •Nov. 2 – Spring Valley.

By Karen Billing The Secret Car Club is perhaps the worst kept secret in Rancho Santa Fe and surrounding communities, as many people are big fans of the collection of beautiful classic cars that converge on the Rancho Santa Fe village every weekend. On Saturday mornings, Avenida de Acacias and Paseo Delicias is lined with a variety of cars, from a 1910 Maxwell to the newest Mercedes. Motorcycles too. The cars may be flashy but the club is not—it’s lowkey and all-inclusive, according to founder Chris Erickson. “We’re here for the love of the cars,� Erickson said. Erickson is a realtor with Willis Allen who has been working in the area for more than 21 years — the last six years his office has been on Paseo Delicias. The idea of the club started after talking about cars with several of his clients. “With a lot of car clubs there’s so much politics and the car world can be very clique-ish,� Erickson said. “We just wanted to start something casual with some of our friends and get together on Saturdays.� It started with just four car enthusiasts meeting up on a Saturday in Rancho Santa Fe, but then it kept growing week by week. The weekly meeting event started to become a destination, attracting everyone from classic car owners in Los Angeles to residents wandering into the village from a Saturday morning walk on the trails. Erickson said the club has become a really interesting mix of people, free of politics, where everyone is on the same page. It doesn’t matter if you’re a millionaire or a mechanic. One week they had a Minerva, a car from the early 1920s that was sold for nearly $2 million. Erickson said the car was stunning, with its “sweeping fender� and khaki tan canvas top. While the cars can stun, there’s more to the group than just the cars. One local teenager used the club to pick

Education Matters: Commentary/Opinion Teacher training in Del Mar: In search of balance and principals – as a need. By Marsha Sutton As a final follow-up to the recent series on professional development in the Del Mar Union School District, DMUSD superintendent Holly McClurg explained why some teachers are out of their classrooms for training more than others. All DMUSD teachers spend two to five days a year, for three years, in Cognitively Guided Instruction staff development, she said, to prepare for Common Core State Standards which are being introduced this fall. In addition, some teachers across all grades, those in their third year of CGI training, are also Common Core lead curriculum teachers. Shelley Petersen, DMUSD’s assistant superintendent for instructional services, said the lead curriculum teachers have several functions: understand the new standards, determine when certain stan-

dards should b e taught d u r ing the three t r i Marsha Sutton mesters of the school year, identify available resources that support the standards, and create student assessments. Petersen said these lead curriculum teachers, 21 for English/language arts and 21 for mathematics, represent an average of three per grade level (kindergarten through sixth). She said one lead curriculum teacher, a sixthgrade teacher from Del Mar Hills School, is also involved in collaborative work with the San Dieguito Union High School District, writing curriculum to smooth the transition between sixth and seventh grades. In addition, she said there are three other sixth-

grade teachers (from three other Del Mar schools) also working with San Dieguito and other feeder elementary districts but who are not Common Core lead teachers. “The purpose of this collaborative work is … to ensure students are wellprepared to transition from elementary to middle school,” Petersen said in an email. Because the San Dieguito articulation team involves a few sixth-grade teachers, these teachers will have more absences from their classrooms. Articulation from sixth to seventh grade needs to be seamless, McClurg said, “so you can see the necessity to have some crossover.” The articulation team, she said, was formed “specifically in response to the needs of our sixth-graders in mathematics. It’s something we’ve definitely heard from our community – our teachers and parents

“We obviously want to and need to be a part of that. We have been working very closely with San Dieguito on getting that to happen. So it will be very beneficial.” But that means two days of CGI training, three days of lead teacher work, and then an additional three days this spring working with San Dieguito, for that teacher, McClurg said. Other teachers might be absent for CGI training and for San Dieguito articulation work, while still other teachers will only be absent for CGI training. McClurg said the district tries to schedule some of this work in the summer – and after school, on weekends and in the evenings. But much depends upon teacher availability and voluntary participation since after-hours work cannot be compulsory, even when pay is offered. The district’s lead curriculum teachers do meet

after school on occasion, but because there are so many (21 in each group), finding a time when they can all meet is challenging, McClurg said. Petersen said it’s important for the entire group to be together for the work, to ensure a smooth transition between grades. “We had a previous experience when grade levels worked independently, and we had gaps and holes from one grade level to the next,” she said. “The articulation piece is critical, even more so now because Common Core is new.” Correcting a point made earlier, Petersen said the district has no teachers who have finished their three-year CGI training yet and none are training other teachers. The district’s Common Core lead teachers “may be asked in the future to assist with delivering professional learning to their colleagues, [but] this has not occurred during this school year,” she said.

Common Core preparation is frustration from some parents over the resulting need for substitute teachers. Responding to criticism that subs are simply baby-sitters, Amy Swindle said, “As both a DMUSD substitute and parent, I feel like I need to defend my job.” She said parents seem unaware of the educational background and experience of most of the subs in the district. The substitute teachers she’s worked with, she said, “are often more educated and experienced than the teacher we are replacing [and] not only have full teaching credentials but most of us also have Masters degrees.” Swindle, a Torrey Hills parent who has subbed at all eight DMUSD schools, said she holds a Bachelors degree, Masters degree, teaching credential, math and business teaching credentials, and has 10 years of experience. “We do not simply come in and let the class See EDUCATION, page 22

By Karen Billing The San Dieguito River Park’s “Birdwing� open air classroom is taking shape near the lagoon in Del Mar; construction continued quietly last week to a soundtrack of the wetlands’ singing birds. The facility borrows its name from the wing-like design of the rustic metal shade structure that covers rows of concrete bench seating for environmental education; the open air affording scenic views out across the carefully restored wetlands. According to Dick Bobertz, executive director of the San Dieguito River Park, finishing touches on the classroom off Via de la Valle will be in place by April and it will open to the public in mid-May. It is already scheduled for numerous events for the first several months and a grand opening ceremony has been set for Tuesday, May 13, at 10 a.m. “The Birdwing will be the River Park’s first permanent venue for group presentations and will greatly expand our public education program capacity,� Bobertz said. “One of our most important objectives is to help kids make a physical connection with the environment, so we will be bringing school classes to the Birdwing as much as possible.� The classroom is being built with $330,000 of donor funds, $112,000 of which coming from the county and former Supervisor Pam Slater-Price. The Birdwing phase of the project broke ground in October 2013, with Southwest General Contractors of Escondido doing the work. The classroom is carved out of a slope in between two trails, the upper and lower portions of the Coast to Crest Trail through the lagoon. Four curved rows of concrete seating terrace down to a “stage� area at the bottom. The classroom can accommodate 80 people with its permanent seating but with temporary chairs on the stage area, it could hold 120 people. New wood bridges built on the trail will lead into the classroom and salvaged boulders will be placed on the edges. Some of the boulders are already in place marking the trail. Volunteers were hard at work last week planting the surrounding areas with shrubs, Coastal Sage Scrub mix and riparian trees. A parking area is also in the works. About 60 spaces in the decomposed granite lot


Grand opening for San Dieguito River Park’s ‘Birdwing’ open air classroom expected to be held mid-May

The “Birdwing� open air classroom in the San Dieguito River Park lagoon is expected to be finished in April, with a grand opening celebration in May. Photo/Karen Billing adjacent to the site will serve trail users, the classroom and a future lagoon nature center. A public design process for the nature center was completed in 2009 and it is proposed to be located about halfway between San Andreas and the Birdwing. According to Bobertz, the capital program to get the funds necessary for the nature center is expected to begin in May. For more information, visit

Display case at Solana Beach Library recognizes Persian New Year DEFENSE By Kristina Houck International Day of Nowruz is March 21, a day after the first day of spring. Nowruz, which translates to “new day,� marks the first day of spring and the beginning of the year in the Persian calendar. To recognize the Persian New Year, Farzaneh Mobine installed a display at the Solana Beach Library. “There is quite a large Persian group in North County and throughout San Diego,� Mobine said. Born in Iran, Mobine immigrated to the United States in 1973. She first lived in La Jolla, then moved to Australia for 14 years and later returned to California. She has lived in Solana Beach since 1994. “It’s nice to get involved with the community library and be together,� she said. “We don’t want to separate ourselves. We want to mingle with the people. This is an occasion everybody can join.�

Farzaneh Mobine next to a display in recognition of the Persian New Year at the Solana Beach Library. Photos/Kristina Houck Historical evidence dates the holiday back to early Zoroastrianism. Now widely a secular cultural celebration, Nowruz is celebrated by different ethnicities across the Middle East and around the world. Families that celebrate the holiday set up a Haft Sin table, which features seven symbolic items, each starting with the letter “s.� The display case at the library also features these items, which include seeb (apples) for beauty; sir (garlic) for good health; sabzeh (sprouted wheat grass) for rebirth and renewal of nature; serkeh (vinegar) for patience; sumac (crushed sumac berries) for joy; senjed (dry fruit of the lotus tree) for love; and samanu (wheat pudding) for fertility and the sweetness of life. “Unity, peace, spring — that’s what I hope people take from this display,� Mobine said. The items were put on display March 17, where they will remain for the next couple of weeks, Mobine said. The Solana Beach Library is located at 157 Stevens Ave.

continued from page 3 the opportunity to insure peace and stability and open waterways. We certainly need to focus on trying to increase the fleet. It’s one of the few ways we have to be present and influence without having to land an airplane on somebody else’s territory.� Question: Secretary Hagel states, “We are no longer sizing the force for prolonged stability operations.� The Army will draw down from 520,000 to 450,000, the Marine Corps will drop from 190,000 to 182,000 and the Army National Guard and Reserves will also draw down. What risks are involved with that? MGS: “I worry about the size of the Army. Ground combat has become very complicated. We’re equipping the forces with far more complex high-tech systems, whether it’s communication systems or weapons — how they integrate on the battlefield. I don’t believe that generating ground combat power overnight is easy.

Those days are long gone, because the Infantryman is a weapons system, not just somebody who picks up a rifle and goes forward.� Question: What happens if things heat up with Russia, Syria, Iran, China or North Korea involving the U.S.? MGS: “There aren’t a whole lot of scenarios we can come up with where the United States would commit itself to a major war. Iraq and Afghanistan, especially during the surges, took everything we had out of the ground forces and a heck of a lot out of our air forces. That’s what we’re living with today and has nothing to do with sequestration. The problem of the budget going forward is recovery from this [in] all the services.� Question: Are Americans and their safety against attack caught in the crosshairs of political budget wars? MGS: “The security of the nation isn’t at risk, but certainly aspects of our livelihoods and our quality of life could be at risk if we see adversaries become more powerful and start restricting.�

Solana Beach Cats – 5th Grade Winter League Champs The Cats White Team started the season with a 1-3 record, struggling as they played for the first time in the Top Gun Bball League. They have a lot of new players so it was taking a little time to develop and start playing well together. They entered the playoffs, held this past weekend at Canyon Crest Academy, with a 4-3 record and a 4th seed in the tournament. They played in the quarter-finals against the #5 seed – La Jolla Riptide – and won, 29-12. Next, they played in the semi-finals against the #1 seed – 1 on 1 – and beat them 36-18. In the finals, the Cats played against the #2 seed – Top Gun Central – and beat them 44-23. The Cats Team played relentless defense and opportunistic offense to win the tournament. The Cats motto that defense wins championships proved true. They have one of the best programs in the County for training and developing young players to one day play high school basketball. In the meantime, they continue to play well and have a great time. The Cats White Team ended the season on a roll – with a 6-game winning streak, and a final record of 7-3. Coach Anthony Bradley has done an amazing job of developing the players into a championship team while keeping it fun and exciting. He is able to get each one of them to play their best when it really counts. The players and parents really love him as their coach. What a great season for all — congratulations to the entire team.

New head football coach selected for TPHS

Torrey Pines High School announced March 17 that former assistant coach Ron Gladnick has been hired for the vacant football head coaching job. Gladnick was head coach at Clairemont High School for the past two seasons, where he led the Chieftains to their first play-off victory in 20 years. Gladnick is a former high school and college player who had a “cup of coffee” with the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers. A CEO and retired business owner, Gladnick lives in Fairbanks Ranch. His stepson, Vinny Arvia, played for Torrey Pines High School. Look for a more detailed story in next week’s paper. — Tim Pickwell

Pot shops have proven they can’t be regulated

KAREN BILLING Senior News Writer

Re: “San Diego City Council passed new regulations for medical marijuana dispensaries on Feb. 25” — the real concern and issue is whether the pot shops will obey the new regulations. If you look at their current track record, the answer is no. Currently there are 40-plus pot shops that operate illegally in the City of San Diego without any business permits. Even after a year of community members sending city officials a list of the 40plus pot shops with their addresses, only a few have been forced to close. Clearly, the city is doing a poor job of tracking their locations and shuttering their illegal operations. The City Attorney and Neighborhood Code Compliance have been unable to shut down these shops and, when they do, they just change their name and open back up a few weeks later. If the City has been unable to shutter the 40-plus pot shops operating now illegally, what makes us think they will be able to ensure that these new regulations will be adhered to? This ineffective enforcement needs to be improved if these newly approved regulations are to be obeyed. Pot shops haven’t been inspected for building, health, and safety codes presenting a real concern and danger to the surrounding neighborhood. In Pacific Beach, pot shops remain open until 2 a.m. to serve the party crowd, hardly acting as a good neighbor. The pot shop regulations, in theory, try to bring some order to an out-of-control situation. But pot shops don’t care about the law, or the easy diversion of their drug to our young people. It’s about profiteering plain and simple, which is strictly prohibited, but nearly impossible to enforce. The ordinance does nothing to ensure pot shops truly operate as non-profits, it does nothing to limit the amount of pot bought by any 18-year-old, nor does it limit the frequency or locations for young people to buy pot. You can literally go shop to shop buying pot. If you consider pot “medicine,” which none of our medical associations have said it is, this is not how we administer medicine in our community or nation. The city council tried to bring a lawless industry under control, but there just isn’t enough “teeth” in the ordinance, nor any renewed commitment from law enforcement to be more effective in shuttering nuisance shops. There is a reason the other 17 cities in our county don’t allow pot shops. Pot shops have proven they can’t be regulated, unless you’ve got an army of code compliance officers and city attorneys solely dedicated to pot shop enforcement, which none of our cities can afford to have.

An alternative to Affirmative Action

MARSHA SUTTON Senior Education Reporter

Recently, the Senate Constitution Amendment 5 (SCA 5) was brought up in the state legislature in an attempt to overturn 1996’s Prop. 209, which prohibits our state government institutions from discriminating against/granting preferential treatment to any individual group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in employment, education, or contracting. Prop. 209 was meant to follow the American ideals of equality and equal opportunity — the concept that one can even start at the bottom and still rise to the top, given the opportunity. However, many have come to believe that this system does not provide the boost needed to help underrepresented “races.” Why put “races” in quotation marks? Simply because race is not a biological concept — it is a social construct, created by people to differentiate themselves from others. There are no clear-cut, distinct categories of people with genetic markers. Race, I believe, is simply used to determine relations based on stereotypes and culture. And in this case, fighting racism with “selective favoritism” is no way to end inequality. Instead of Affirmative Action, why not give preference based on economic standing? Currently, poor people as a group (including Caucasians) are passed over. Their economic status also hinders their education, especially when schools in these areas are not able to attract the best-qualified teachers. In order to make a change, this cycle should be broken. I feel that poor students who are motivated and need a helping hand, not a handout, are the ones who should be given preferences. With the odds stacked against them, it is amazing that some do as well as they do. Instead of grouping people based on race or ethnicity, we should classify them based on socioeconomic status. Affirmative Action should evolve into SES Action. Additionally, we should put more money in reforming schools in low-income areas, so we can level the playing field between the haves and have-nots. The achievement gap in America can be closed with the improvement of these schools. Through information collected by the Education Trust, it has been revealed that students are greatly concerned about teachers who do not understand their own subject matter, principals who dismiss their concerns, and counselors who underestimate their potential. However, many educational pundits blame the achievement gap on the families of the children or the children themselves. I feel that if the schools can be reformed, and the students are given a better education, it would go a long way in providing a pathway for them to be a part of a prosperous and productive society.

Prop B: Let’s move forward and see how the new policy works Prop B, the Fletcher Cove usage initiative, is now history. One side wanted to continue the City Council experiment, with its cautious set of detailed, specific restrictions. The Prop B side wanted a permanent, more open policy, relying on current regulations and the special permit process. After the Prop B petition was submitted, the City Council decided to have a public vote. The community was closely divided and I think the CC did the right thing. It was expensive, but as one CC meeting speaker said: “Democracy is not for sale.” Strong opinions were held, and the sparks were flying. I know first hand that old friends are now not talking and neighbors are snubbing each other. This seems unnecessary. The people have spoken, we now have a new policy, so let’s move forward and see how it works. For those who are disappointed, I am reminded of the old saying: “Things are sometimes not as good as you wanted, but they are seldom as bad as you feared.” Bill Howden Solana Beach

One Paseo still undecided, time for the final push It seems like forever since the One Paseo project was first presented to the community, and many people mistakenly believe that it is somehow approved. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the City is still gathering information on the project’s environmental impact (EIR), information that will be used by the local Planning Board, the City’s Planning Commission and the San Diego City Council to make a final decision on what will be built. You can expect the final EIR to arrive in the next few months, and the final decision to be made this summer. While we believe the community supports the basic idea of a “Main Street,” Kilroy’s proposals are too big for Carmel Valley. Sure, they have “reduced” the project, but even the reduced version still has significant impacts that can’t be fixed. The project is out of scale with its surroundings, and the streets can’t handle the traffic load. Have you ever wondered, “What can I do?” Well, the time for action is finally here and we need to show that the community does not support a project this large. Rather, I believe the majority would prefer an even smaller village, one that fits into our neighborhoods and doesn’t overload our streets. Over the coming months, we will ask you to write some letters and attend some meetings to express your concerns. Today, we are requesting that concerned residents write the Mayor’s office to ask the Mayor to help ensure the objectivity of the environmental report, a key document for the final decision. We need to make sure the project is fairly presented so that the planning groups and City council fully understand the issues. Why are we concerned about the final EIR? First, the local Planning Board has noted that the community was not properly involved in setting the initial goals and scale for the project, as required by the City. Second, potentially reasonable alternative projects were dismissed out-of-hand, even though they still contained a good mix of uses. And, finally, even if the developer’s optimistic assumptions hold, the traffic report has a 15-year gap in the data before the traffic problems are potentially controlled. That might mean 15 years of gridlock before things get “better” (if they get better, at all.) We hope you can visit our website at to read more about One Paseo and send a letter of concern to our new Mayor. Ken Farinsky,


‘Main Street’ concept does not apply very well to One Paseo project I agree with Ian Stewart (March 13 Opinion). “Gussying up” existing strip malls does not provide the social interaction and neighborliness that a mixed use “Main Street” development would. Where we differ is the question as to whether Kilroy’s “One Paseo” project will provide that experience without the whole region beyond One Paseo, including Del Mar Heights and the City of Del Mar, paying the price of more traffic congestion, more provisions for cars instead of people, and a degraded environment in every sense of the term. The essence of the “Main Street” or “village” concept is that it serves local needs and reduces automobile miles travelled by allowing for pedestrian and bicycle and public transit access from further afield. None of this applies very well to the One Paseo project. The Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report (RDEIR) issued in October last year, makes this clear. Three alternatives are proposed. The first is the “Reduced Main Street Alternative” which would reduce the additional Average Daily Trips (ADT’s) in the immediate vicinity from 26,961 to 23,854. The next alternative is the “Reduced Mixed Use Alternative” which would add only 11,001 ADT’s but is dismissed out of hand because it does not meet the Developer’s goal of a “Main Street.” The third is the “Specialty Food Market Retail Alternative which would add 6,500 ADT but really is a “gussied up” strip mall. For comparison purposes, the ADT supported by the current zoning for the site is 5,786 ADT. It seems to me there is plenty of room here for compromise. Why could Kilroy not build a smaller version of the village concept? The reason given for considering only the Reduced Main Street Alternative is that it “meets most of the basic objectives of the project applicant” (p.1 DEIR). In reference to the Reduced Mixed Use Alternative, the DEIR (p.15) says, “The 50 percent reduction in retail proposed by the Reduced Mixed Use Left to right: Kenneth Cheung (TPHS), Catherine Xu (Westview HS), Alan Tang (Del Alternative would not generate the number of shoppers necessary to sustain and attract the desired class of retailers.” Whose objectives are we looking at, and what is the desired Norte HS), Jeanne Lee (Bonita Vista HS), David Choi (Canyon Crest Academy), Ellen Lee (Bonita Vista MS).

Local high school students distribute supplies to San Diego’s homeless


James W. Carr “The Mayor of Main Street” 1924 – 2013

Main Street. Jim’s true loves were skiing, which he did into his early 80’s, tennis and the Main Street Deli which he frequented almost every day. He truly touched the lives of many individuals who still call Park City home; as well as his dear friends in Southern California (Tennis club and Polo grounds), who were with him to the end. Jim was interred at the Miramar National Cemetery, San Diego, CA, after a military ceremony. A Celebration of Jim’s Life will be held in Park City, Utah (soon)! All family members, friends and acquaintances of Jim are invited. Please RSVP to: Tom Carr-“TC”, home 303-282-9670/ cell 303-475-4154. Please sign the guest book online at www. solanabeachsun.

By David Choi Today, nearly 10,000 are homeless in San Diego County, with almost 6,000 in the city of San Diego alone. A group of high school students are working to make a difference. International Association of Youth is a non-profit, youth-run organization with headquarters in San Jose. Each year, IAY’s San Diego chapter hosts “Warmth to Homeless,” where students raise money to purchase sleeping bags and other necessities to distribute at the Salvation Army in downtown San Diego. On Feb. 5, the members of the San Diego chapter of IAY donated and distributed 50 sleeping bags to the homeless in downtown San Diego. Along with sleeping bags they donated various articles of clothing, water, and food, and helped the Salvation Army volunteers in serving dinner to the homeless. After the local reverend finished his sermon, and dinner was served, the homeless began to file out of the main dining hall. The looks on their faces as they received sleeping bags, bottles of water, and handfuls of clothing were that of gratitude and joy. David Choi, the president of the San Diego regional chapter, who has led the event for two years, said the experience was “eye-opening.” “Although this was my second year participating in the Warmth to Homeless Drive, it was a new experience… It put everything into perspective and made me think about what they must be going through.” Alan Tang, a new member, described it as “extremely rewarding,” while another, Catherine Xu, stated “I will definitely continue to help out in any way I can, and hopefully make a difference in their lives.” This year, the members of IAY were able to fundraise 50 sleeping bags, and they aim to raise 100 for next year’s event. Although 50 sleeping bags may seem like a meager amount compared to the 9,950 homeless not benefited by the drive, it’s the desire to help that matters. The members of IAY hope to act as examples for others in their communities, and spread the joy of giving back, whether it be to the homeless, the underprivileged, or others in need. After all, a small candle can grow into a shining flame, and the efforts of a few young people can truly bring warmth to the homeless.

On September 19, 2013, Jim Carr of Park City, Utah, age 88, passed away in Solana Beach, CA, where he spent his final years. He was the dear brother of the late Thomas Carr and Charles Carr, and loving uncle of Thomas Carr “TC”, Charlie, Robert,

Jimmy and Barbara Jo (Bill) Weisenbach. Jim was born on December 26, 1924, in Philadelphia, PA. He proudly served in the U.S. Army during WWII, fighting in the “Battle of the Bulge”. After his military service, Jim worked for RCA as a top recruiter in Florida and Alaska. Arriving in Park City in 1964, Jim was one of the Modern Day Pioneers who truly believed in and shaped Park City into the World Class Resort Community which we all know and love today. He, along with his trusted dog, “Bogart”, was the proud owner of the Prospector Hotel & Prospector Sirloin Restaurant/ Bar (Hula Bowl). He also owned and operated “The Last Resort” on lower Main St. which housed many locals in their early years, as well as commercial storefronts on

EDUCATION continued from page A8 watch a movie for the day,” Swindle said in an email. “We follow the teacher’s detailed lesson plans and do the same lessons that they would be doing with their regular teacher.” She said when she subs in Del Mar, the school’s principal usually stops by to observe her interacting with the class. Swindle also questioned the view that learning is not optimal with substitute teachers. “Del Mar is the top district in San Diego County and one of the top in the entire state, so where is the proof that substitutes are having any negative effect on learning?” she said. “Del Mar students are top-notch and are independent, smart workers who function well with substitutes.” Takes time Although parents and teachers have complained

about excessive training that pulls teachers out of their classrooms, McClurg contended that it’s a minority who object. “It’s important to consider all the pieces,” she said. “The other piece that speaks so loudly to me is when I hear from the teachers that say the training is invaluable.” The chief complaint from teachers, she said, is that it takes time to learn the strategies and new material. “That’s the part I absolutely hear and that we continue to look at as far as what are the best options for doing this,” McClurg said. “We’re providing our teachers with what they need, and obviously it’s for the children.” If the session I saw with DMUSD’s professional development leader Dinah Brown is any indication, teachers seem enthused about the training and excited to learn new instructional methods. “I feel so lucky that we get to do this,” said Del


Mar Heights kindergarten teacher Alison Catilus, who is in her first year of CGI training. The days of teachers in their classrooms, behind closed doors and left alone, are long gone. Collaboration, conferences and staff development are now the norm. Providing teachers with access to professional development, as our educational system embarks in a fresh direction under the new Common Core State Standards, is a critical piece in the recognition, long overdue, that students are graduating from high school and college illprepared for the skills and critical thinking needed for today’s jobs and careers. Although Del Mar’s leaders have no intention of lagging behind in providing their teachers with the tools to succeed, the search continues to find ways that balance the needs of competing interests. Marsha Sutton can be reached at SuttComm@san.

Teacher training by the numbers By Marsha Sutton Cathy Birks, Del Mar Union School District’s assistant superintendent of business services, provided information on the cost of the district’s professional development for the 2011-2012, 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 school years. The amount the district has spent on leaders for professional development training, according to Birks, is: $52,600 (2011-2012), $79,000 (2012-2013), and $19,500 (budgeted for this year). The 2013-2014 number drops significantly because staff development leader Dinah Brown was hired full-time by the district this year, and her salary to provide teacher training is not included in that $19,500 number. Brown’s annual salary, as coordinator of curriculum and instruction, is $114,780, Birks said. The cost of teacher training also includes the amount spent on substitute teachers. Birks provided these amounts for substitutes hired specifically to replace classroom teachers absent for professional development: $105,000 (2011-2012), $112,000 (20122013), and $128,000 (budgeted for this year). The daily rate for subs increased in 2013-2014, from $90 to $100, which accounts for the higher 2013-2014 amount. Birks said certificated teachers are not paid a daily rate but average $420 per day, to compare. In addition to subs required for professional development, teachers are also allowed 10 sick days per year and may miss school for “personal necessity days” or to attend committees or other district work obligations. The amount spent on substitutes for these non-professional development days are: $218,000 (2011-2012), $200,721 (2012-2013), and $142,281 (budgeted for this year). Birks said the lower amount this year is due to the elimination of four upper-grade comp days and a reduced certificated staff. The average number of days per year teachers are out for professional development is four, and the average number of days they are out for other reasons is seven. The total number of certificated teachers engaged in professional development, according to Birks, is: 258 (2011-2012), 275 (2012-2013), and 248 (2013-2014).

‘The magic of parent participation’ helps make Sycamore Ridge production of ‘Peter Pan Jr.’ possible Note: The photos on this page are from a rehearsal. Look for photos from the production in next week’s issue (March 27) or online at By Karen Billing One of the lessons being taught at Sycamore Ridge Elementary School recently was how to make Tinker Bell really sparkle and fly. As students rehearsed for their March 14 and March 15 performances of “Peter Pan Jr.,” parent volunteer director Shelly Yaeger instructed Tink (played by sixth grader Lily Wickham) how her smile could most delight the children in the audience and how to most-effectively toss her pixie dust. Lily stood on a stage lit by student crew members, in front of an amazing set painted and decorated by parent volunteers. The whole thing wouldn’t be possible without the magic of parent participation, said Lisa Blazer, Sycamore Ridge PTA president. Since 2011, parents have been volunteering to put on the school plays after their Extended Studies Curriculum (ESC) was trimmed and they lost their full-time music teacher. “Parents were sad to see something like the plays leave so that’s when volunteers came forward to help out,” said Blazer. She said this year is really flying due to the hard work of Yaeger, choreographer Pam Hunter, stage manager Jen Ernst and their host of parent volunteers. The students are lucky to be learning from volunteers who all have professional theater experience. “The kids have this amazing opportunity to experience what it’s really like to be in a play,”said Blazer, noting they are expected to work hard and build a strong sense of camaraderie doing it. “Shelly is amazing. She’s a private voice instructor and she just works magic on them.” “She gets them all to sing,” Ernst said, noting even the ones who are shy about singing at first are confidently carrying a tune by the end. “Peter Pan” is a bit smaller cast than they’ve had in past productions, with 38 cast members and 11 student crew members. They also have two alumni cast members to fill out the bigger costumes required for the Crocodile and Nana the dog, played by Torrey Pines High School students Sara Shoushtari and Keely Hunter respectively. Several alumni from Carmel Valley Middle School also serve on the crew. All of the students had to audition back in September and rehearsals have been ongoing since October, during Thursday lunch clubs, and at least one after-school rehearsal a week. There are some surprising newcomers who turned out for this year’s play, but many of the cast members are returning performers. As Wendy, sixth grader Madeline Ernst is starring in her third show at Sycamore, having previously played Mrs. Potts in “Beauty and the Beast” and the Genie in “Aladdin.” “Wendy and Genie were my favorite roles to do, there’s lots of different emotions to represent which can

Peter Pan (Julia Dawson) takes down Hook (Matthew Mohler). Photos/Karen Billing be a bit of a challenge depending on how you decide to perform them, but challenges are good for actors,” said Madeline. Her favorite scene in “Peter Pan” is when she gets to sing “Your Mother and Mine” in the Lost Boys hideout. Sixth grader Matthew Mohler has used Sycamore’s drama club as a launching pad into other acting opportunities. After realizing how much he loves theater at Sycamore Ridge, he has gone on to play Gavroche in two different local productions of “Les Miserables” and is soon to play Dill in “To Kill A Mockingbird” at New Village Arts Theatre in Carlsbad — the play opens April 12. Matthew is having a lot of fun playing the vilThe darling Darlings: John Blackstone-Gardner as Mr. lainous Captain Hook, facDarling, Maddy Ernst as Wendy, Sofia Anderson as Mrs. ing off against his nemesis Darling, Lucas Mauck as Michael, Diego Campisano as Mi- Peter Pan, played by sixth chael and Torrey Pines freshman Keely Hunter as Nana. grader Julia Dawson.

lia moves spritely around the stage, escaping Hook’s clutches, leaping and skipping to appear as if she’s in flight. Matthew said it’s important for actors to sink completely into the role they’re playing and they can’t be distracted if their shirt is itchy or if their Captain Hook wig slips off during a fight scene (which it did in Wednesday’s rehearsal). “You have to do what you need to do for the play’s sake. You have to leave your heart out there, you have to keep your soul on the stage,” said Matthew, like an old theater veteran. “You’re another person when you’re up there.” Parent Tiffany Wickham made the beautiful, whimsical costumes for the show and every touch looks just right, from the fur and leaves on the Lost Boys to the sparkle on the petal skirts of Tinker Bell’s fairy crew, flowers topping their heads and sprouting on vines wrapped around their ankles. As Smee, sixth grader Aleksander Hunter sports a fake pot belly and the crocodile maneuvers in her costume on a skateboard. The cast performed the show first for the whole school during a Thursday, March 13, assembly before their three weekend shows. “It’s great thing because we get a rush of ticket sales afterward, from kids who want to see it again,” Blazer said. Every year the show has been a sellout for all of their performances and Blazer hopes with continued parent support, they can keep the drama club going for years to come.

No matter where we were and no matter what presented itself to us, she just saw the goodness in everything.” Two days after returning from their threeweek trip, the pair began planning their next adventure. In 2008, they traveled to Italy, followed by a trip to Spain in 2011. Last summer, they visited Amsterdam and returned to Paris.

Jennifer Coburn with her daughter, Katie. Courtesy photo “We’re so busy. We had soccer practice, then there’s homework. There’s such a treadmill of our suburban middle class existence,” said Coburn, who has published four novels and is a contributing author to four anthologies. “This has really forced us to leave our environment and be somewhere new and depend on just each other for everything.” “We have such hectic lives at home,” added Katie, a junior at Patrick Henry High School. “We get along very well at home, and we love each other, of course, but we don’t really get to spend as much time as we’d like just together.

24/7.” While the book is centered on Coburn and her daughter’s trips to Europe, the memoir also references Coburn’s childhood in New York and shares memories of her father, Shelly Coburn. In his honor, she is donating the royalties from the book’s first 1,000 preorders to the American Cancer Society. The mother-daughter duo hopes the book encourages readers to venture out into the world and make their own memories. “If they want to travel but they are waiting for the right time, I hope that they will just say, ‘I’m going to find a way to do this. If she can do it, I can do it,’” Coburn said. Traveling is doable, but you have to make sacrifices, Coburn noted. They used their frequent flier miles and brought big packs of granola bars. “We had to choose beSee TRAVEL, page B22

By Kristina Houck Jennifer Coburn was just 19 when her father died from lung cancer. He was 49 years old. “I’m sad that he missed this part of my life,” said Coburn, a San Diego-based author, mother and wife. “I would have liked to have had more memories with him. I would have liked to have traveled with him.” With a fear of also dying young, Coburn has always been determined to make lasting memories with her 16-year-old daughter, Katie. Set for release on April 8, “We’ll Always Have Paris” chronicles the pair’s four trips to Europe. “I’ve always been nervous of dying young and I’m getting around that age where my father died,” said Coburn, 47. “If I go young, I really just want to cram her mental photo album with lots of memories.” Leaving dad at home, the mother-daughter duo embarked on their first trip to Paris and London in 2005. “I was terrified because she was just 8 years old,” Coburn recalled. “I remember landing and thinking, ‘What have I done?’” One of Katie’s favorite memories stems from this trip. She and her mother had slept overnight at Shakespeare and Company Bookshop in Paris. “There were cots all over the place,” Katie recalled. “You can stay the night for free if you work a couple shifts or you’re an author.” The pair stayed in the “Writer’s Suite,” what they described as a small room with bugs in the sink and an old box of Ritz Crackers on the floor. Katie’s bed was a table with a yoga mat as a mattress. Her mother “slept” on a door, which was on top of a set of file cabinets. “But she loved it,” Coburn said. “That was the thing that I really admired about Katie through all of the trips.

Bistro 39’s Parmesan Chicken Bruschetta

Parmesan Chicken Bruschetta features chicken breast coated with parmesan cheese and roasted tomato bruschetta.

BY KELLEY CARLSON s a hotel-based restaurant with a strong local following, Bistro 39 is a melting pot of travelers and area residents. Located inside the Hilton Garden Inn Del Mar, the eatery is a logical choice for those visiting from out of town — a place to relax after a long journey, where they can feast on classic dishes with a California twist in a cozy setting. Yet Bistro 39 also has a loyal, local following, according to Food & Beverage Director Bill Songer. It’s largely known for its daily, seven-hour-long happy hour and people love to stop by and unwind after work, he said. “(We offer) the best of both worlds,” Songer said. During happy hour, there are discounts on beers (local, domestic and imported) and house wines. And there are also appetizers on a menu that’s different from what people might expect, Songer said. “We pleasantly surprise people,” he added. Tops on Songer’s recommendation list are Mahi Tacos with cabbage, jalapeño cream and mango salsa; and Buffalo Egg Rolls with grilled chicken and blue cheese. Other highlights of the bar/appetizer menu include Shrimp Ceviche Tostadas, a trio of small, crispy tortillas with piles of raw, citrus-tinged seafood garnished with cilantro and avocado; and Chef Jose’s Chipotle Cheese, a spicy melted sauce created by Chef Jose Fraire that’s

Guests who opt for a full, sit-down dinner can select from a variety of entrees. Among them are the Short Rib Sandwich on focaccia with pesto, Vermont cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and arugula; Lamb Chop covered with a pomegranate reduction, resting on a bed of rosemary couscous and steamed broccoli; Parmesan Chicken Bruschetta, featuring chicken breast coated with parmesan cheese and

enhanced with roasted tomato bruschetta; and the Mobley Burger, a thick patty with lettuce, tomato, onion and cheese that’s sandwiched in a pretzel bun. Some items can be prepared gluten-free, such as tortillas, pasta and pizzas. There is also a dinner special, whether it has a holiday theme or is a fresh daily offering. Recent examples include the Corned Beef and Cabbage in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, and Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin. As for desserts, one that is often requested is the Deep-Fried Brownie Bites — Ghirardelli fudge morsels that can be dipped in raspberry, white chocolate, caramel and dark chocolate sauces. Another is Chef Jose’s Cheesecake that is made from scratch, topped with pineapple and strawberries. “It’s (the cheesecake) to die for,” Songer said. Oenophiles may take interest in Bistro 39’s occasional wine dinners and can join the e-mail list on the website to receive information. While the restaurant is not open for lunch, it does offer an all-you-can-eat breakfast for $12.95, which includes juice, coffee, fruit, pastries, cereal and other continental breakfast-type items. Hot food such as French toast, pancakes, eggs, sausage and bacon are all made-to-order and the cooks can prepare other items, such as eggs benedict and chilaquiles, upon request.

By Kristina Houck It wasn’t a chapel or a beach, but four couples exchanged vows in a giant Hershey’s Kiss on Valentine’s Day. The 12-foot tall art piece, which smells like chocolate, is a part of the latest exhibit at the Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA). Local artist Jean Wells [Hamerslag] was there as the couples got married in her creation during the opening of “Jean Wells: Icons of Desire” on Feb. 14. “It warmed my heart,” said Wells, who had to reduce the piece from its original 18-foot size for the exhibit. “It made me so happy because what I like to do with my art is bring pleasure to the viewer.” About 700 people attended the opening of the exhibit, which coincided with the museum’s Art After Dark: Vintage POP! event, said OMA Executive Director Daniel Foster. “We’ve been getting quite a response from the community,” Foster said. “It is one of the most popular and well-attended exhibitions in our history.” The exhibit features more than 60 life-size, pop-infused mosaics — some of which Wells had to borrow from her collectors. In addition to the Hershey’s Kiss, other popular pieces include a full-size operating Smart car, a 15-foot-tall lipstick, a Coke bottle and hamburger, and a Tiffany box. One of Wells’ favorite pieces is “planted” outside in front of the museum. The 17-by-11-foot “Urban Fruit Tree” is topped with items such as ice cream cones, hamburgers, Coke bottles and Hershey’s Kisses. “As you go through my show, you can see the humor,” said Wells, who grew up in Seattle and has lived in North San Diego County for about 20 years. “I like to poke a little fun, even though it’s serious work and hard

Wells went on to study graphic design at the University of Washington and worked in the advertising indus-

try while raising her two children. Once her children were grown, she devoted more time to her art and held her first solo show in 2007. “It’s a highly genetic

predisposition and I thoroughly enjoy what I do today,” she said. “This is probably the most exciting part of my career.” Although she is trained in the art of classical mosaics, she has developed a vision distinctly her own. Inspired by pop culture, all of Wells’ creations are sparkly and most are larger-thanlife. “I love to take something that we see every day and turn it into something spectacular,” she said. This is the first time her work has been installed at OMA, which is located at 704 Pier View Way in Oceanside. Her work is also currently on display at Boca Museum of Art in Florida as part of “Pop Culture: Selections from the Frederick R.

By Antoinette Kuritz and Jared Kuritz One of the few people in the world to play two flutes at once, David Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music is considered some of the most beautiful in the world. With the ability to heal and engender balance, it is used in wellness centers, spas, hospitals, and alternative healing facilities throughout the world. With more than one million copies of his CDs sold, Young is a Grammy nominee who received a standing ovation from Sir Paul McCartney. But it is his at first reluctant channeling of George Harrison that has truly set Young apart. Young recently sat down with us to discuss his music, his relationship with George Harrison, and his March 29 event at Seaside Center for Spiritual Living in Encinitas, Calif. When did you first become interested in music? I started in third grade. Everyone learned to play the recorder in third grade. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very good at it, but I just kept on working at it. Then we were given another shot at it in fourth grade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a bit of a miracle. And by the fourth grade ended I was really good at it. I am a reminder of why music programs are so important in schools. What made you stick with it? I listened to the radio a lot, and the radio would play the same songs over and over again. I found myself playing by ear, and playing by ear it is playing from the heart. And it just felt good. What generated your interest? I started playing name that tune on the school bus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the kids couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stump me and it was fun. So I kept on playing. When did the idea of playing two recorders at once hit you, and how did you become so gifted at the art of playing them? Well, I really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attempt this until I was an adult. And it came about because I was playing at Venice Beach

David Young

with a woman who limitedly played the harp â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a six-song repertoire. To break up the monotony, I tried playing two flutes, and it became a challenge and then my unique trademark. What unique quality do recorders bring to music? When you play two at once, it creates a tri-harmonic tone in which a third note actually occurs which sounds like a buzz, adding extra vibration to the music and thus affecting us more deeply. Rather than pop or rock or soul, or any of the genres that produce superstars, you chose healing music as your mainstay. What led you in this direction? Once I started playing two flutes at one time the music just started taking off, and it was such a powerful visual as well as a beautiful audio sound, I started getting hired to do events (Barbra Streisand, Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Taylor). It was the early â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s and spiritual music was just starting to take off. This music came so naturally to me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I had been meditating for 20 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and once I realized the impact of the music, it became my genre. There is no doubt that music has an incredible impact on us. How would you describe the energy behind your music? What effect do you hope it has? From what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been told, many people have had healings and out-of-body experiences with my music. I think perhaps it is my background in meditation that facilitated this â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the energy I have developed through years of spiritual searching. I hope that my music opens the doors in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds to the spiritual possibilities. Who are the two musicians who most influenced you and why? Andreas Vollenweider who plays the electric harp showed me that you could make music that was spiritual and uplifting and have it be interesting. And when I was a kid, Jethro Tull because he was the craziest, most high-energy flute player ever. For the past few years you have been channeling George Harrison â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yes, the George Harrison. What was your first response when you realized it was George coming through? I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why he chose me. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a big Beatles fan, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in channeling. And I was afraid of just the idea of ghosts. Now I do believe in channeling, I am no longer afraid of ghosts. And I have a far-greater appreciation for the Beatles. Why do you think he chose you? A lot of reasons. Because he has great taste in music! But actually, he has explained See AUTHOR, page B23

BILY San Diego offers parents a way to a peaceful home County Supervisor Dave Roberts recently visited BILY (Because I Love You), a San Diego County non-profit parent support group dedicated to supporting parents with children of any age. BILY was first established in Los Angeles by Dennis Poncher in 1982 and in San Diego by Mymy and Steve Cade in 2011 to assist families whose parents are struggling or in crisis due to the behavioral problems of their children (offering support for adult children as well). Supervisor Roberts observed first-hand the tremendous need for the program the group offers. He heard from parents whose children are exhibiting behaviors such as disrespect, defiance, drug abuse, sense of entitlement, trouble with the law, truancy and poor work ethic. BILY offers support and guidance so that parents can make fundamental changes that bring peace to their home and launch children toward responsible and successful adulthood. Communicating and problem solving with other parents who are going through similar difficult times with their children can be very helpful; discussing what works and what does not invites creativity in problem resolution methods for parents. It

is empowering for parents to find they are not alone in raising children who are less than compliant. BILY provides a comfortable, confidential, nurturing, nonjudgmental learning environment. The effectiveness of the BILY program and organization is best described through the testimony of parent participants: Before BILY: â&#x20AC;&#x153;...we were completely lost and confused and exhausted.â&#x20AC;? After BILY: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our confidence as parents is growing. Our children are growing up, learning to own their own problems and figure out their own solutions.â&#x20AC;? Before BILY: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our house was controlled by negativity, shouting, door slamming and arguing.â&#x20AC;? After BILY: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are learning how not to emotionally engage and are seeing amazing results in our family lifeâ&#x20AC;ŚBILY offers a way out of the chaosâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? BILY San Diego meets Monday evenings, 7 to 9 p.m., Seacoast Church, 1050 Regal Road, Encinitas. Meetings are nondenominational, open to the public and free. Reservations are recommended but not required. For additional information, visit: or contact Mymy Cade, (760) 634-3336.

Where the Surf Meets the turf

By Kristina Houck About nine years after first opening in the Rancho Santa Fe Plaza, Mister B boutique is being revamped. The store, which currently carries a variety of men’s clothing lines, will exclusively carry Robert Graham starting in April. “It’s going to be great,” said owner Maggie Bobileff. “We’ll be the biggest Robert Graham collection in the area.” After owning a boutique in her native Switzerland, Bobileff opened Mister B in Rancho Santa Fe Plaza. The success of Mister B led to Maggie B, a women’s boutique, which opened three years later. In July, the Rancho Santa Fe resident opened two new locations in Del Mar’s Flower Hill Promenade. The launch of her newest Mister B and Maggie B locations, which offer a variety of men and women’s apparel and accessories, led to the revamp of her oldest store. “After I opened up an-

other store in the Flower Hill Mall, it was just confusing for the customers,” she said. “And Robert Graham is just an amazing brand.” The Rancho Santa Fe Plaza locations will drop the Maggie B name and keep the Mister B name, but Bobileff might add something more to the name of the store, she said. “I’m very excited,” Bobileff said. “It’s going to be very nice.” All current stock is on sale to make room for the new merchandise. Mister B is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. For more information about Mister B, call 858-7565099 or visit

One of the oft-quoted rhymes of Dr. Seuss, whose books will come to life in the Theatre School@North Coast Rep’s production of SEUSSICAL JR., sums up director Siobhan Sullivan Crews’ views on the literacy outreach project she and the cast have embarked on. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go,” Seuss wrote in I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! During the March 27-30 run of SEUSSICAL JR., the cast will collect books to donate to organizations that serve local foster youth and refugees, as well children in Africa. In addition, Ben Cole (the school’s Teaching Artist) is visiting local school classrooms dressed as the Cat in the Hat to promote literacy. “Because Dr. Seuss epitomizes literacy, that’s why we’re doing a literacy outreach piece,” said Sullivan Crews, who is also the director of Theatre School Education & Outreach. The SEUSSICAL JR cast kicked off the book drive when they held a birthday party for Dr. Seuss on March 2. The cast sang the opening number, “Oh the Things You Can Think,” and Sullivan Crews read the book it was based on. Horton the Elephant, played by Carly Lynch, read Seuss’ story of his life

A food and drink dating site The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Parents of the marriageable watermelon had a dispute. The mother argued, “cantaloupe,” while the father insisted, “honeydew.” Foods like people need to be suitably matched to enhance each other’s virtues. Here is a list of culinary compatibles to set off a sensuous symphony in your mouth. A Meat Market Although steak and spuds or a heap of fried onion rings is the old boys’

school of gustatory preferences, charred carnivorous offerings pair best with non-starchy sides, such as roasted Brussels sprouts, broccolini or collard greens. Studies have shown that a side of crucifers helps the body slough off carcinogens from chowing down on meat, chicken or fish cooked at high temperatures or prepared “blackened style.” If you are a diehard meat and potatoes person, then marinate the protein in a rosemary and olive oil vinaigrette to achieve the same protective effect. The herb is rife with rosmarinic and carnosic acids that ward off dangerous chemical compounds (heterocyclic amines) from forming on grilled meats. Going Nuts over You Munchy, crunchy nuts beautifully complement silky, creamy cheeses. Sweet pecans make a nice contrast to salty cheeses like blue and Roquefort. Buttery, earthy walnuts do best with aged cheeses like Havarti, Cheddar or Gorgonzola and assorted

sheep’s milk cheeses. Almonds, raw or roasted pair blissfully with hard aged and Spanish cheeses. Finally, pistachios add a splash of purple and green eye candy to light and lively cheeses, such as Chevre (goat) and Feta. Power Couples Turmeric and black pepper are a dynamic duo working as a harmonious team, putting the skids on inflammation, high cholesterol and various cancers. Black pepper bolsters the body’s ability to absorb 1,000 times more curcumin, the Herculean ingredient in turmeric. No better way of pumping iron into your diet than the marriage of spinach with citrus, whether a splash of Meyer lemon vinaigrette, bright blood orange slices or mandarin segments. When Popeye’s favorite green hooks up with Vitamin C, the latter converts the iron in spinach into a more accessible form for the body. Lycopene, an antioxidant powerhouse in tomatoes is fat soluble, so pair-

ing it with a healthy fat boosts the body’s absorption of this phytonutrient by seven fold. Chop some tomato in a big bowl of guacamole, do a caprese salad with fresh basil and buffalo mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, or add a sprinkle of Parmesan in a pot of mighty marinara. Spice up your Life While beef loves thyme, coriander, rosemary and garlic, chicken is crazy over tarragon and marjoram. Gamier turkey, on the other hand, is well suited to basil, cumin, thyme and sage. Fish is fond of fennel, lemony sumac and dill, but pork prefers pungent personalities like mustard, garlic, rosemary and thyme. Lamb finds harmony with garlic, mint, cumin and rosemary. Other marvelous matches are oregano in tomato sauces, bay leaves dialing up bouillabaisses, parsley enlivening boiled redskin potatoes, sage in stuffings, cinnamon accenting apples, ginger zinging everything from teas and lemonades to stir fries and baked goods, cumin in curries, cayenne amping up chilis and nutmeg perfecting pumpkin pies.

70 percent or higher, that makes all of us a little more amorous is divine when paired with hazelnut, almond, coconut, raspberry, mint, orange, mocha or apricot. Come to think of it, chocolate is charming by itself. Wine and Dine The staid rules for pairing white wine with seafood and chicken, red with meats is no longer de rigueur. Oenophile Leslie Sbrocco, author of The Simple and Savvy Wine Guide has uncorked a fresh attitude for wine-pairing. These include: •Matching the texture of the food with the texture of the wine. So a full-bodied wine should accompany a rich meal, while a delicate wine goes with a light meal. •Matching aromas and flavors, so a spicy dish pairs with a complex, spicy wine. •Let the sauce be your guide, not the meat. So beef, chicken or fish in a tomato-based sauce will all call for the same wine. This salad is a marriage made in gustatory heaven.

Willis Allen Real Estate, the local brokerage that is celebrating 100 years of service in San Diego, recently announced that it is helping bring WoMen in Relocation, a New York City-based national organization of relocation professionals, to the West Coast. Willis Allen’s Ashley McEvers, business development manager, will lead the endeavor. WoMen in Relocation was founded by Silvana Malpelli, executive director at Brown Harris Stevens Residential Sales in New York City. It supports individuals and small communities in need of housing assistance. In the past WoMen in Relocation has assisted groups in the Northeast, such as The Bridge Fund of Westchester, Shelter our Sisters and Homes for our Troops. WoMen in Relocation has members from as far away as Germany. With this expansion the group hopes to help even more small organizations that need housing assistance on the West Coast. “We are delighted to support the efforts of WoMen in Relocation. It is inspiring to see relocation specialists work together to support their local communities,” said Hall F. Willkie, president of Brown Harris Stevens. Willis Allen’s President and Owner Andrew E. Nelson says his company has a long history of helping those in need. “Community service is one of the trademarks of the Willis Allen brand,” says Nelson. “Each year our agents give hundreds of hours to charities that mean the most to them – from Wounded Warriors to Special Olympics and many more. As a company we support a number of worthy causes, including the Arbor Day Foundation, Rady Children’s Hospital and Meals on Wheels, just to name a


Ashley McEvers few.” Nelson adds that in addition Willis Allen Real Estate was instrumental in founding the La Jolla Real Estate Brokers Association (REBA). He says Willis Allen agents also have leadership roles in real estate organizations locally and state-wide.
