Del Mar school district approves variety of cuts

■ Creative wigs were the hit of the evening at the HillsFest fundraiser for Del Mar Hills Academy. See pages B20-B21

BY KAREN BILLING The Del Mar Union School District board authorized $1,596,138 in cuts at its March 20 meeting. The board members admitted the slices were painful to make, and they were in a position they did not want to be in, picking savings options from “a litany of bad choices.” The approved cuts include five furlough days for

classified and management staff; the reduction of three special education aide positions; allocating library media specialists and health aide technicians based on enrollment; elimination of a computer technician supervisor; elimination of eight English language learner positions; the elimination of four utility workers and one maintenance worker; the sale of maintenance trucks;

and district department spending freezes. An additional $1 million in cuts is coming as the district goes back to the table in negotiations with the Del Mar California Teachers Association (DMTCA) on March 27. The main options to reach the $1 million in savings pledged by the DMCTA are increasing class sizes to 22:1 and five furlough days.

‘Pump Up the Volume’

Other proposed options could be restructuring ESC minutes and suspending oversized class payment. All furlough days are contingent on negotiations with the DMCTA. The furlough days have to be equal—the classified staff will not take furloughs unless the DMCTA agrees for certificated and management staff to take furloughs as well.

BY CLAIRE HARLIN It’s been a little over a year since the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy purchased the 3.4-acre Gateway Property that sits between Solana Beach and Cardiff along Highway 101, with private investors coming forward with the funding that made the purchase possible. But while the community so far has worked long and hard to raise $2.4 million of the $3.75 million purchase price to pay those investors back, the fight isn’t over yet — and until it is, the property could still

end up in the hands of another buyer. “The land is secure, but not yet saved,” said longtime resident Gerri RetmanOpper, who has pioneered efforts to save the land, which provides a buffer to the adjacent San Elijo Lagoon, since the 1990s. “A little over a year has gone by and people start to forget about it, but people need to keep in mind it’s vulnerable and could go back on the market.” There’s still about $1.4 million to be raised to cover the $3.75 million purchase price, which was made in December 2011, only See GATEWAY, Page 6

SB sets priorities for fiscal year

Education Foundation needs more donations to meet goal

BY CLAIRE HARLIN In prioritizing capital projects in the works aimed to preserve and add to the community character, the Solana Beach City Council discussed its top priorities for the upcoming fiscal year on March 20. The to-do list includes improvements at the Fletcher Cove Lifeguard Station — and it’s not the first year the 75-year-old building, which is visibly showing its age, has been identified as a priority —

BY KAREN BILLING The Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) has entered the homestretch in its fundraising campaign. As of last week, DMSEF had raised $725,000 so far, which is roughly the same point they were at last year according to Drew Isaacman, the foundation’s interim president. The deadline for fundraising is April 30. The foundation has $1.27 million left to meet its $2 million goal to fund a full Extended Studies Curriculum, which includes specialized instructors in science, technology, music, art and PE.

“We stay committed to raising funds for ESC teachers,” Isaacman said. “This is our one chance as parents to make a significant impact on the education our children receive. I hope everyone takes the opportunity to contribute.” Isaacman said that there have been some questions from the Del Mar Hills Academy community regarding the funding model and in an effort to be as transparent as possible the Foundation will hold an informational meeting on April 3 at 7 p.m. at Del Mar Hills Academy.

Committee debates parking issues for planned Carmel Valley park BY KAREN BILLING As the design for the new Gonzales Canyon Neighborhood Park in Pacific Highlands Ranch takes shape, some members of the park design committee are advocating for more park, less parking. Some plans for a parking lot for the park included 28 to 31 spaces with a cul-desac turn-around. But with only 5 acres to use, and in a community built with the intention of “de-emphasizing the car,” some committee members were hesitant to cut into the park to provide spaces. Committee member Manjeet Ranu said for day use, people could use street parking along Pacific Highlands Ranch Parkway and when school is not in session, people would be able to utilize the 83 spaces at the future neighboring Solana Ranch School’s parking lot. “Putting a parking lot within the park duplicates parking at the school, which is wasteful,” Ranu said. Another committee member, Michelle Strauss, said that at least some parking, maybe a 10-space lot, would be helpful. “We want to emphasize walkability but we have to be realistic,” said Strauss. “There has to be something.” She said she worries that without a parking lot, cars may inundate the surrounding neighborhood. The ad-hoc committee members of the Carmel Valley Recreation Board will seek further community input on parking as they develop their plan. They plan to meet again on April 16 (location to be determined) be-

fore submitting a final tentative design to the board in May. The committee looked at three tentative design plans from Schmidt Design group and gave feedback to the designers to merge details they liked in two of the plans. The park elements they want to include are tot lots, picnic areas, a restroom, basketball courts, exercise stations, natural play areas, and about 2 acres of multi-use turf for recreational play. The turf space likely won’t be big enough for competitive sports leagues, but could be used for practices and younger recreation leagues. Solana Ranch will also have sports fields. Members liked the idea of a strong, treelined promenade through the park but encouraged the design group to incorporate a loop as it will be more useful for adults to exercise, for walking with strollers or children riding bikes. An amphitheatre element for staging movie nights or concerts received mixed reviews. “I like it but I question how much use it would get,” said Strauss said. The committee agreed they wanted the amphitheater space to be more flexible so it could be used for a variety of activities, as well as function as an amphitheater when needed. Community members present said they weren’t as concerned with the size and shape of the green space being able to accommodate games. However, Ken Farinksy

Friends of Del Mar Mesa’s nonprofit status is official; Planning begins BY SUZANNE EVANS Its 501 (c) nonprofit status confirmed by the IRS, Friends of Del Mar Mesa met at the March 14 Del Mesa Community Planning Board meeting to activate the group’s plans to heighten protection of the preserve. Friends’ treasurer and organizer, Del Mar Mesa board member Preston Drake, said the group has received its first donation and hopes initially to raise $50,000. Hawks soar above the preserve’s emerald chaparral and curving trails in the newly formed Friends’ logo, highlighting the environmental beauty and legacy the group seeks to protect. The logo was designed by one of the group’s directors, artist and digital photographer Angelika Drake. The mission of the Friends of Del Mar Mesa is “to protect and preserve the habitat, ecosystems, and recreational aspects of the Del Mar Mesa through habitat restoration and enhancement, recreational support, stewardship, research, and education. We support educational and recreational activities that foster an appreciation of the natural environment of Del Mar Mesa.” Mesa planning group chair Gary Levitt said there will also be a protection plan for vernal pools. Vernal pools, with fresh supplies of rainfall, sparkle in the spring and are home

to two endangered fairy shrimp species and several plant species, proposed for federal or state protection. Prime projects include trail upkeep, signage, fencing, and eradication of invasive plants such as non-native Pampas Grass that crowds out native plants and trees that provide shelter and food for native wildlife. The group will also meet with park rangers to identify future projects for grant applications, contact press, activate a membership drive, and advertise on the Web. Del Mar Mesa board members unanimously elected Friends of Del Mar Mesa Preserve directors and officers at their Nov. 8 meeting. Directors elected for two-year terms include Angelika Drake, Preston Drake, Gary Levitt, Ken London, Paul Metcalf, Trey Nolan, Bill Woolson, and Lisa Ross. Friends of Del Mar Mesa Preserve officers elected for one-year terms are Lisa Ross, president; Ken London, secretary; and Preston Drake, treasurer. Among tasks Friends will undertake are trails enhancement, fencing materials upgrades, and natural habitat restoration. Also included in the mission is “the whole mesa, not just the preserve,” Levitt said. Friends of Del Mar Mesa will formally launch in June. Its website has been secured at

Local ‘sleep coach’ and author of ‘Sleep or Die’ on a mission to fight sleep apnea BY KAREN BILLING Local resident William Headapohl has transformed from a sleep apnea sufferer to an “Apnea avenger.” Headapohl is a board member of the American Sleep Apnea Association and works as a sleep coach for ResMed’s “Wake Up to Sleep” initiative, drawing on his experiences and advice detailed in his book “Sleep or Die: Overcome Apnea Before it Overcomes You.” “My whole purpose now is to turn people into avengers and help them avenge evil sleep apnea,” Headapohl said. “The definition of avenge is to stomp out evil with asymmetrical fury. Sleep apnea must be stomped out with extreme prejudice because it’s a hidden killer and spawns so many other afflictions.” Headapohl said up to 90 percent of sleep apnea cases are undiagnosed and over the last 15 years that number has not changed, although it’s as common in this country as Type 2 diabetes. Headapohl said that one in five people has sleep apnea and it is manageable through therapy, but as successful treatments are so individualized there is a difficult barrier to getting people into the right treatment. Not to mention, there is a high level of denial in sleep apnea sufferers. “People will feel like they have been hit by a Mack truck every morning and still don’t believe that they have it. It’s very difficult to motivate people to take action,” Headapohl said. Sleep apnea is more than just snoring. Sleep apnea stops breathing, making your heart beat faster, raising your blood pressure and increasing the risk of heart attack. Sleep apnea also causes insufficient sleep that can affect cognitive function and make people sick with depression and gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), Headapohl said. Headapohl added that sleep apnea can affect insulin production, which leads to the development of diabetes, and studies show cancers progress more quickly in people who suffer from sleep apnea. It is more common in men than women and risk factors include being overweight and over the age of 40, but sleep apnea can strike at any age, even in childhood.

William Headapohl works as a sleep coach and wrote the book “Sleep or Die.” Photo/Karen Billing Learning other people’s stories has become critical to the success of treating sleep apnea, which is the reason why Headapohl has become involved in the public awareness effort. He wrote the book to give people practical advice, not coming from a doctor but someone who has been through it. With the Wake Up To Sleep campaign, an online

patient support community, he coaches patients, speaks at conventions and even participated in a twitter chat on March 20. “I actually think sleep apnea is somewhat hindered by its name because it doesn’t get across the gravity of the situation,” Headapohl said. He compares it to someone standing over a sleeping person and putting a pillow over their face every minute until they are gasping for air. “It’s like suffocating over a long period of time,” Headapohl said, wondering if calling it “the smothering disease” would get the point across better. Headapohl’s business experience has also helped him spread the word about sleep apnea. Headapohl grew up in Montana and came to California to attend Stanford University. In his career that includes being on the ground floor of several computer and Internet businesses, he compares himself to Forrest Gump; being in the right place at the right time and having no clue as to what was going on. He worked for Apple,

CNET and was a co-founder of the Internet ecommerce business He moved to San Diego to become the chief information officer for Gateway. He has since left Gateway and now works as a consultant both in sleep devices and IT-related matters. Headapohl was awakened to sleep apnea in 1990, when he and his father were touring the world on a oneway ticket. He remembers being in a New Zealand hotel room watching his father sleep and not being able to believe what he was seeing — his father would stop breathing and gasp for air. “At the time I didn’t realize what was happening,” said Headapohl. “When my father was diagnosed with sleep apnea, my eyes were opened and I realized this was much more than just a nightly annoyance.” His father had always had health issues such as heart disease, GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) and had developed diabetes — all ailments Headapohl believes can be traced back to untreated sleep apnea. A CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine was able to make

his father feel much better and live an extended life. His father had developed sleep apnea late in life but Headapohl took some convincing to believe that he had sleep apnea too and to do something about it. “I was in denial, like a typical person with apnea,” Headapohl said. More than just loud snoring, Headapohl suffered from extreme exhaustion — “When my children were born I could barely function for about a month,” he said — and had severe cognitive problems that affected his ability to keep track of things at work. He even dangerously fell asleep while driving. He opted to try for a surgical solution after hearing that surgery had a 70 percent cure rate. “I fell into the 30 percent side,” Headapohl said of the unsuccessful surgery on his tongue, throat and nose. Not liking the option of going in for a painful jaw surgery, he sought the advice of Peter Farrell, the cofounder of the San Diegobased medical equipment

Former prosecutor examines weaknesses of criminal justice system in novel BY JOE TASH In a critical scene from the legal thriller “Defending Jacob,” the main character, a deputy district attorney, discovers a knife hidden in his teenage son’s drawer just after the boy’s schoolmate was found stabbed to death in some nearby woods. Rather than turn the knife in for scientific testing, prosecutor (and father) Andy Barber decides to throw it away, convinced the weapon will cast undue suspicion on his son. William Landay, himself a former prosecutor, is the author of “Defending Jacob,” and was the featured speaker at the Tuesday, March 19, Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society luncheon at The Grand Del Mar. In an interview before his talk, Landay said a number of people have asked him about his character’s action, and whether that is something a real-life prosecutor would — or should — have done. Landay recalled being approached by a retired homicide investigator at a reading, who told him, “Of course I’d get rid of it.” And Landay, the father of two young boys, agreed. “I would do anything for my boys. I’d walk through fire for them. I’d get rid of that knife, in Andy’s shoes, I’d do that in a heartbeat,” said Landay. One of the central dilemmas of the book is Andy Barber’s inner conflict between his sense of duty

Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society Chapter President Candace Humber, author William Landay, chapter leader Gayle Allen of Northern Trust PHOTO/MCKENZIE IMAGES to the community where he has lived and worked as a prosecutor, and his bonds of love and loyalty to his son. The novel, Landay’s third published work, chronicles the arrest and trial of Andy Barber’s son, Jacob, and the effect it has on Andy’s family. Landay said he did not set out to become a crime novelist, but had an urge to write for many years that he indulged in his spare time whenever possible. His work as a prosecutor in the Boston area during the 1990s gave him many stories to work with, and made him feel com-

fortable writing about the world of criminals, courts, detectives and attorneys. After writing part-time, and even taking sabbaticals from the District Attorney’s office, supporting himself by bartending and dipping into his retirement savings, Landay decided to leave his job and see if he could make it as a writer. The pressure to make a living at writing intensified when he got married and his wife became pregnant with the couple’s first child. They were at the obstetrician’s office for a pre-natal checkup when

his cell phone rang. The call was from his agent, Landay said, informing him he had a deal to publish his crime novel “Mission Flats,” along with a second book yet to be written. “Defending Jacob,” which came out in 2012, is Landay’s third published novel, and film rights to the book were purchased last year by Warner Brothers. Now that Landay has three published novels under his belt (he’s written several others that remain on his computer’s hard drive), he isn’t anxious about whether he can make it on a professional level. But he still worries about continuously improving as a writer. “It never gets easier. I feel like an absolute beginner every time,” Landay said. “It’s a privilege to have a job where you’re tested every day. I have a lot of sleepless nights and that’s the trade-off.” He conceded that his insecurities may have more to do with personality than his chosen profession, because he recalled similar anxieties when he was working as a prosecutor. “Defending Jacob” also examines the weaknesses of the criminal justice system in which Landay worked for nearly a decade. “I do not believe in the court system, at least I do not think it is especially good at finding the truth. No lawyer does. We have all seen too many mistakes, too many bad results. A jury verdict

is just a guess — a well-intentioned guess, generally, but you simply cannot tell fact from fiction by taking a vote,” Andy Barber muses at one point, early in the novel. During the interview, and also in his talk before the audience, Landay said our present legal system hasn’t changed substantially since the Magna Carta, a 13th-century English document that limited the absolute power of monarchs over their subjects. Under our criminal justice system, said Landay, the entire burden of proof falls on the prosecution, which must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. “Even loading the dice that much (in favor of defendants), are we satisfied there are enough safeguards built into the system?” he said. “I don’t know what the answer to that is.” He also spoke about our enduring fascination with stories of crime and punishment. “These are ancient, primal stories and we consume them over and over,” he said. “Stories about criminal acts and urges tell us something about ourselves.” The Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society is sponsored by Northern Trust.

Local canine brings Woodward Center a seasonal visitor The vernal equinox is said to provide increased daylight, warming temperatures and the rebirth of flora and fauna. For Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Companion Animal Hospital, the first day of the season has brought an unexpected guest – a baby jackrabbit, veterinary workers are calling “Spring.” In a hospital where normal clients include a myriad of dogs and cats, a local canine turned out to be a uniquely gentle courier for the tiny rabbit’s delivery. A Rancho Santa Fe woman arrived at Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Companion Animal Hospital earlier this week with a tiny bunny huddled in a make-shift bed formed from an Ugg-slipper. She informed staffers that her dog had carried the tiny creature to her, in his mouth, and gently placed it at her feet. The jackrabbit appears to be only weeks old and is showing positive signs of life, although the Center workers have some concern about his back legs. Worried that they may be paralyzed, the baby bunny will be under constant surveillance over the upcoming days. “We really try to discourage people from disrupting nature and handling wild animals,” stated Chief of Staff Dr. Patricia Carter. “It is very possible that this bunny’s mother would have returned to look for it. I think the woman who dropped it off was well-intentioned and concerned that this bunny may have been injured or that the mother was gone for good. Now that it’s here, we’ll do everything we can to increase its chances for survival.” The days ahead of “Spring,” will include plenty of hydration, a warm place to sleep, and an intense focus on getting the tiny jackrabbit to eat and receive the best nutrition possible. If the veterinary team can get Spring back up and “hopping” he will be introduced back into the wild within a matter of months.

W i t h spring in full swing, Helen Wo o d w a r d Animal Center would like to remind the public of the following information: Removing bunnies from a nest greatly reduces their chance of survival. If an in“Spring.” dividual finds a wild nest of bunnies with no mother present, the nest must remain undisturbed. Mother rabbits forage during the day and return to their nests only at night, staying away as much as possible so as not to attract predators. If your dog disturbs a nest, please make all attempts to return the bunny to the nest uninjured. Nests should be reconstructed as best as possible with grass, hay and straw. Should the nest require a complete rebuild, try to place it no further than 10’ away from the original site. Dig a shallow hole about 3” deep and return as much of the original material as possible into this new nest, placing the baby bunnies inside. If the baby bunny appears to be injured, Helen Woodward Animal Center recommends that you call Project Wildlife at 619-225-9453 or the Wildlife Center at 858-278-2222. For information on the Helen Woodward Animal Center Companion Animal Hospital, dial 858-756-4469, visit or stop by at 6523 Helen Woodward Way, Suite 200 in Rancho Santa Fe.

‘Walk to End Genocide’ is April 7 in Carmel Valley The second annual Walk to End Genocide will be held at Ocean Air Community Park in Carmel Valley on April 7 from 9 a.m. to noon. (Regisration begins at 9 a.m.) The one-mile walk aims to raise awareness, support and hope for the survivors of genocide in Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The walk is sponsored by and will support Jewish World Watch and is being planned by a philanthropic young team of San Diego Jewish Academy (SDJA) sophomores: Zander Cowan, Naomi Suminski and Ilana Engel. Their first effort on the SDJA campus last year had 100 walkers and raised $5,000. Their goal this year is to raise over $2,500 and have about 250 people walking with them. At the April 7 event, there will be several hands-on activities for participants, such as making potholders for Congo families to use with solar cookers JWW provides and an opportunity to write a letter to genocide survivors. As April 7 is also Holocaust Remembrance Day, participants will also be able to participate in SDJA’s butterfly project — their mission to create 1.5 million ceramic butterflies to memorialize the number of children killed during the Holocaust. Speakers at the event will include Holocaust survivor Dr. Edith Eger and a La Jolla Country Day School student who is from Darfur. There will be event-day registration but early online registration is encouraged. Registration is $18 for adults and teens 12 and older and participants receive a t-shirt. Children 11 and under walk for free but all must be registered. Register at Ocean Air Community Park is located at 4770 Fairport Way, San Diego, 92130. SHOES ZIPPERS LUGGAGE GOLF BAGS

PRIORITIES continued from page 1 the replacement of the beach access stairway located north of Del Mar Dog Beach. After its emergency closure last November, the council allocated $100,000 to embark on plans, and the total estimated cost of the project is $1.7 million. Ott said construction of the steps, built in the 1970s, could begin this fall and will last about 10 months to a year. Addressing lifeguard station deterioration The lifeguard station was included as part of the Fletcher Cove Community Center plan, however, that plan got a head start on its recent completion with the help of private funding sources. The city hopes this year to evaluate funding options, develop a building concept, and obtain a geotechnical report on the area surrounding the deteriorating building. City Manager David Ott said that while part of the building has been patched,

he doesn’t think the building will be able to hold up for much longer. “It’s a harsh environment there,” he said. Upgrading La Colonia Park In addressing improvements at La Colonia Park, the city has added the task of completing the Veterans’ Memorial there, which is already designed but not completely built. The project was originally slated to be built with redevelopment money, but that source dried up when the state disbanded redevelopment agencies statewide. In November, the council gave a community group in the area permission to start raising money themselves. Park improvements carried over from last year include adding features to bring the park into compliance with Americans With Disability Act (ADA) standards, completing final designs, obtaining a coastal development permit and beginning construction. The city estimates the project will cost $4 million. Getting involved in

the I-5 widening project The city is amid the public workshop phase of the Interstate 5 widening project, for which a cost is yet to be determined. On March 1, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) re-released the public works plan for the North Coast Corridor (NCC) project, a plan that was originally released in 2010 and has since been extensively updated. On the city’s agenda is reviewing and responding to the plan, as well as the Environmental Impact Report (EIR). Depending on how Caltrans responds to the city’s comments, additional review may be necessary. One of the proposed elements of the plan is a region-wide bicycle trail. Councilwoman Lesa Heebner said the route in Solana Beach proposed by Caltrans doesn’t work well for Solana Beach. Two public meetings will be held on the plan to gather feedback and answer questions. The first meeting will be held on April 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. at La Jolla Country Day School at 9490 Genesee Avenue in La Jolla, and the second will be held on April 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Carlsbad Senior Center at 799 Pine Avenue in Carlsbad.

At that time, at least a couple other entities were competing to buy the property, which makes fundraising even more urgent, Opper said. And on March 20, the Solana Beach City Council recognized that urgency by moving fundraising efforts up on its official priority list and establishing an ad hoc committee consisting of councilmembers Lesa Heebner and Tom Campbell to seek out sources. “I whole-heartedly sup-

CUTS are forced to take furlough days. Teachers also spoke against increasing class sizes, noting the district’s lower class sizes are valued and increasing them would result in the loss of around 11 to 15 temporary teachers and one permanent unit member to be transferred. Teachers said that there is enough money in reserves to keep the district solvent without shoving more kids into a classroom or losing quality teachers. They urged the district to suspend professional development and to use more of its reserves — “We saved for this, we have the money and we are asking you to please spend some of it,” said Sage Canyon teacher Chris Rappa. The board has established a minimum reserve of 15 percent to address economic uncertainties. The state requires a reserve of 3 percent. If the district does nothing to reduce expenditures and just uses its reserves to fill the gap, the reserve balance would be at 10 percent next year, according to Cathy Birks, assistant superintendent of business services. By the third year out, the reserves would barely make 3 percent. While teachers urged them to spend reserves, the district is planning on spending $2 million to $2.5 million of its reserves this year, leaving a little over the 15 percent. Del Mar Union School Board President Doug Rafner noted that on the financial task force he and trustee Doug Perkins served on three years ago, they never even discussed the 15 percent number. That task force determined 22 percent to be the floor and when they got

to that 22 percent level the group recommended the district start making significant cuts. “I’m just afraid the rainy day is almost on us,” Rafner said. “And I don’t want to be the president on the board that let us go bankrupt.” In response to teachers asking to cut professional development, trustee Alan Kholos questioned what would happen if they delayed implementation of the Common Core Standards. In rolling out the new Common Core, the district has spent about $284,000 investing in the program. Some districts are doing nothing, others are spending more but in less focused way, said Shelley Peterson, assistant superintendent of instructional services. Peterson said if they stopped the work being done now they would be at a “tremendous disadvantage” as it requires a significant amount of professional learning. “The district spends .5 percent of the budget on professional development,” Peterson said. “When you talk about making cuts as far away from the classroom, providing exceptional instructional program is not far away from the classroom.” In starting the budget discussion, McClurg said that the Del Mar school district is in a place it has never been before and things aren’t going to get easier. “News that I’ve gotten over the last month paints an even grimmer picture for this district,” McClurg said. “It doesn’t look very good.” McClurg said the district is looking to take huge budget hits every year with Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed Local Control Funding Formula, a result of the passage of Prop 30. She is projecting a reduction in overall funding for DMUSD as a result of categorical funding changes

that are expected to continue for the long term. On a state-wide basis, funding levels are projected to grow $2,700 per student over the first five years of implementation, but DMUSD will see a loss of about $850 per student. “Most districts are thrilled about local control funding because they will see an increase. We will see a decrease,” McClurg said. Per the formula, districts receive substantial additional funding based on the number of English learners, students eligible for free and reduced lunch, and the foster youth they serve. As examples, Carlsbad Unified will receive $2,447 more per student; Escondido Unified will see $4,860 more; San Dieguito Union High School District will see an increase in $1,982 per student; and Encinitas Union will see $914 more per student. Approximately 230 districts, including DMUSD, are estimated to receive little-to-no funding as a result of the formula, with the only assurance that they won’t receive less than they did in 2012-13. “This is a drastic change in education funding in California,” McClurg said. Basic aid districts will continue to retain local property tax revenues — which will only increase if property taxes increase. The property tax numbers will come in on May 10 and it could go up by 1 percent, about $300,000, or stay flat. McClurg said realistically with the deficit they are facing, hundreds of thousands of dollars is not going to save them. “This is different for our district,” McClurg said of its current strain. “How do we keep what we have, because we have phenomenal things in this district? We have a huge budget issue and we can’t pay for things when you don’t have the money.”

port exploring options to fill the gap,” said Opper. “There are still people out there who want to buy it, and if we fail, they are going to be jumping on it.” The council’s move to step in and help with fundraising efforts came after San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy Director Doug Gibson presented a promising report on funds raised thus far. Not only have individuals carried the biggest weight, accounting for nearly $2.3 million, but 35 percent of individual donors have been from Solana Beach. While Gibson said the conservancy’s initial strategy was to gain about $1.8 million from public sources, so far

none have contributed. Foundations account for about $81,000 and corporations for $29,000. Gibson said the conservancy’s goal is to pay off investors by the end of this fiscal year, and it continues to employ its direct mail campaign while also asking individuals and seeking grants. Over the past three decades there have been several proposed hotel developments on the land, which ended with passionate opposition from the community. Gibson said after the recent purchase, he received a call from a local developer who said he was ready to buy the property when the conservancy fails.

“That type of mentality gives us just that much more umph to get this completed,” Gibson said. “Whether it’s for the community or animals who live out there … We feel this is a very important community project. I hope we can engage and strategize as much as we can in this workplan fiscal cycle.” Mayor Mike Nichols responded with praise to the conservancy and donors for how far they have come. “It’s not locked up,” he said. “We need to make sure we don’t let that slip back into the hands of developers.” For more information or to contribute, visit www.

Local schools to participate in Local students named to Dean’s List annual Walk for Water event To acknowledge the UN-sanctioned World Water Day and raise awareness about the global water crisis, PCI (Project Concern International) is leading the fifth annual San Diego Walk for Water. The 5-kilometer walk will be held at Tecolote Shores in Mission Bay on Sunday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Robert Santos of ABC 10News will emcee the event. During the walk, participants can choose to carry buckets of water to simulate the journey that women and children make every day in developing countries to obtain water. Registration is open to the public and is $20 per person. Donations and proceeds from the event will go toward funding water systems for remote water-deprived regions and PCI’s lifesaving programs around the world. To increase local awareness of water conservation and bring attention to the billions of people who lack access to clean water around the world, PCI has joined forces with students from 16 local schools and colleges, including Cathedral High School, La Jolla Country Day School, The Bishops School, Francis Parker School, Canyon Crest High School, Pacific Ridge School, High Tech High, Torrey Pines High School, Bonita Vista High School, The San Diego Jewish Academy. Many of these institutions will host assemblies and fundraisers leading up to the walk and will incorporate other nationwide water awareness activities in support of this event. PCI is committed to assisting the girls and women around the world who typically spend at least six hours a day obtaining water and carrying 44-pound containers over long distances. The lack of access to clean drinking water leads to disease, absence from school and work, sickness, and death. PCI gives students, their families, and the community the opportunity to step into someone else’s shoes and experience this daily journey tasked to millions around the world. “This event promotes awareness and compassion toward the water conservation issues that affect the rest of the world. We hope to create that awareness starting at a local level,” said George Guimaraes, President and CEO of PCI. “Millions face the problem of finding potable water on a daily basis. We, as a community, can gain tips and ideas on how to conserve water locally and help ease the burden of this global issue.” Hoehn Land Rover, UPS, Southwest Airlines, Rubio’s and Roadrunner Sports and PCI have partnered to promote access to clean, safe water locally and globally. The Road Runner Sports store in Clairemont Mesa will sponsor a participant day on Saturday, April 21, including store giveaways and prizes.

•D el Mar Community Connections offers new semi-monthly lunch programs

A $15,000 grant has been awarded to Del Mar Community Connections (DMCC) through the San Diego Foundation’s Our Aging Society program for a new socialization outreach project, DMCC board president Nate McCay announced recently. The funds were awarded through the Foundation by Del Mar Healthcare, Inc., a nonprofit corporation established to meet the housing, health and financial security needs of older adults, with a special emphasis placed on reducing isolation and helping older adults stay in their homes longer. Beth Levine, chair of DMCC’s new project, named The Lunch Club (TLC)-TOO, said the funds “will enable us to explore for one year the feasibility of offering semi-monthly lunch/interactive programming opportunities at the new Del Mar Community Building location.” She noted that the grant will provide 360-480 meals a year at 24 luncheons, with a program director, van driver and volunteers implement-

The goal, she said, is getting more homebound older adults out of their homes and interacting with others. Van rides will be offered to and from the Community Building for individuals unable to drive. The TLC-TOO project supplements two other lunch programs sponsored by DMCC — monthly low cost senior luncheons at local restaurants (the original TLC), and a lunch gathering of “retired older men eating out (ROMEO).” The luncheons will be held the first and third Tuesdays of the month, with an anticipated April 16 start date, Levine said.

Accomplished Cathedral Catholic junior brings joy to cancer patients with creative paper daffodils

CCHS junior Mikaela Greeven makes paper flowers for cancer patients. Courtesy photo each flower. With her subsequent creations, she has also attached gloves to help warm patients because “they get really cold and have spikes in temperature when they are undergoing chemo,” as well as a tube of chapstick to soothe dry lips. The extra insight of what patients need comes from Mikaela’s internship in the oncology unit at Palomar Medical Center. “It’s hard [emotionally] ... working with cancer patients because I’ve seen several of them pass away and I get

Take day by day and remember you are a blossom of life and light. I see you.” The words “most outstanding” and “most inspirational” have been attached to Mikaela’s name frequently as she’s received numerous scholarships and awards for academics as well as her service accomplishments. On the short list: she received the 2012 San Diego County Office of Education’s Most Inspirational Student Award; the 2013 Palomar Medical Center Pathmaker Internship Outstanding Dedication Award for having the most intern hours; and the 2012 Cathedral Catholic Most Outstanding Sophomore Award. She hesitates to list all of her activities partly because she’s so humble and partly because there are so many. See DAFFODILS, page 19

BY KAREN BILLING By a rough estimate, Cathedral Catholic High School (CCHS) junior Mikaela Greeven has made close to 800 paper daffodils in the last three years to distribute to cancer patients who are unable to have real flowers in their hospital rooms. Her tissue paper bundles of joy have spread hope and happiness to those who need it most. Mikaela takes inspiration from one of her teachers Jan Davis, who told Mikaela that “in life, you get to do things, you don’t have to do things.” She embraces that positive mindset of not taking anything for granted and using your potential and strength to your greatest ability. “Blossom your ideas and your goodness to the hearts and souls of others,” Mikaela said. “Lift people up and give them a sign that they’re not alone. Make someone smile every day.” The daffodil project began when Mikaela was a freshman and Lynn Flanagan, a CCHS parent and 16-year cancer survivor, came to speak to her class about her support group Linked by Lynn. Flanagan talked about the American Cancer Society’s Gift of Hope Day and how she and a group of fellow survivors would pass out daffodils, a symbol of hope and renewal, to every patient undergoing radiation and chemotherapy at Scripps Clinic and Green Hospital. She told the students that because of their weakened immune systems, the most ill patients are not allowed to receive real flowers. “It came across to me that they’re being forgotten,” Mikaela said. “It sparked an idea for me, I wanted to do something for them.” Flanagan said Mikaela approached her after the presentation and told her she enjoyed crafts and making paper flowers and wondered if the patients might like to receive them. Flanagan said she had no idea if this young high school student would follow through but was pleased to receive a delivery of five-dozen paper daffodils within the month. In her beginning efforts, Mikaela attached a prayer to

To Your Health: New Nutritional Superstars BY STEVEN PRATT, MD, SCRIPPS HEALTH Spinach, salmon, brown rice and almonds are wellknown nutritional superstars. Recently, several newcomers have joined the list of “superfoods” — including a few you may not have tried. Read through the list below and consider adding some of these smart, tasty options to your diet. Quinoa A food must be something special when it earns international honors. The United Nations named 2013 the “International Year of Quinoa” to raise awareness of the many benefits of quinoa [pronounced keen-wah]. Though often considered a grain because of its texture and flavor, quinoa is actually a seed that has been cultivated for thousands of years in other parts of the world and packs an impressive nutritional punch. In addition to being a complete protein that provides all of the nine essential amino acids, quinoa has double the calcium of whole wheat and twice the fiber of many grains. It’s also high in iron and magnesium. Kale Dark leafy greens are usually nutrition superstars, and kale is no exception. A single cup of kale contains five grams of fiber, 200% of the daily recommended allowance of vitamin C and 180% of vitamin A, as well as vitamin B6, magnesium and fiber. It also contains more than 1,000% of vitamin K, which the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports may reduce overall cancer risk. However, too much vitamin K can interfere with blood-thinning medications, so check with your doctor if you use them. Kale is also a good source of copper, potassium, iron, and phosphorus, as well as the antioxidant lutein, which is believed to support eye and heart health. Swiss Chard Swiss chard is another leafy green with thick red, white, yellow, or green stalks. Like kale, Swiss chard is an excellent source of vitamins K, A, and C, and a good source of magnesium, potassium, iron, and fiber. Although kale and swiss chard do contain oxalates, which can decrease absorption of calcium and can lead to See HEALTH, page 19

Company founded by young local entrepreneurs makes stand-up desks for a healthier workforce BY KAREN BILLING Two young entrepreneurs are taking a stand, hoping to change the way people work. The local natives David Grotting and Reid Hollen, along with Reid’s father Jim, have started a company called Standee, that makes unique stand-up desks that encourage a healthier workforce. Unlike other stand-up desks on the market, Standees are “add-on” style, meaning they can be used in conjunction with an existing desk, significantly lowering the price tag. For convenience, the desks can also fold up flat so a user can stand for part of the day and also opt to sit for a spell. Standee also takes pride in the fact that its products are also environmentally sustainable, made of highly renewable bamboo. “It has been an incredible experience working on this project, so I would love to see it continue to grow and be able to devote time to its development,” said Grotting, who likes to envision full offices with everyone working using a Standee. Grotting and Hollen knew each other through attending school in Rancho Santa Fe, but truly became friends through this business venture. Grotting is currently a senior at University of Southern California studying business and entrepreneurship, while Reid is a sophomore at UCLA studying business economics. Now that they are both in LA for school they get together often not just to talk business but also to surf. Jim lends his experience to the company as he spent part of his career in management consulting and now focuses on startups and small companies in the industries of healthcare, information

China, and developing the sales and marketing plan. “It was a great opportunity for them to take something from concept to a commercialized product,” Jim said. “We are a great team together,” echoed Grotting. “We all bring unique ideas and perspectives to the project and some of out most productive times are when we are brainstorming together or problem solving together. Mr. Hollen has been an incredible mentor to Reid and I through this project, allowing us to use our knowledge from school while also advising us with his business experience.” The Hollens and Grotting are very involved in the design and manufacture of the desks. “We went through many phases of design and prototype so we had the exact desks we wanted,” Grotting said of the desks made at RICH LTD’s millwork facility in Oceanside. The Standees are adjustable to meet a user’s exact height preference and the look is simple and sleek. The desks come in two different wood stains (rich amber or soft natu-

ral) and each is marked with a Standee “S” at the front of the desk — the logo has a surfer vibe that is a nod to Reid and David’s Southern California lifestyle. Standee also sells an accompanying antifatigue floor mat to provide more comfort for standing. With graduation from USC on the horizon, Grotting is currently looking for jobs and hopes to continue his “entrepreneurial passion” at a startup before returning to school to pursue an MBA. Reid also hopes to work a few years after graduating from UCLA before attending business school. Their plans for now include enjoying the ride and continuing to work toward making Standee a success. “I hope that Standee will grow and continue to help people become healthy while working,” Reid said.

David Grotting and Reid Hollen are founders of the company Standee, designing and manufacturing standup desks. Courtesy photo technology and retail store displays. It was actually Jim’s work-related discomfort that led to the development of a stand-up desk. A few years ago Jim developed a hip flexor injury that he thought was from running. “During physical therapy I learned that it was really a result of too much sitting over the years,” Jim said. He had the guys in his retail store display shop make a desk podium that he could put on top of his desk to raise his work surface and allow him to stand. The idea worked. “Not only did it seem to help my injury, but standing made me feel more productive and energetic,” Jim said. “I began to discover a wide body of recent research that touts the health hazards of sitting and the health benefits of standing.” Jim found a recent study that showed that sitting for three hours a day can cut your life expectancy by two years, even if you have an active lifestyle. Some of the health benefits of taking a stand include a reduction in heart disease, diabetes, obesity, certain cancers and general fatigue. Those who work standing up can experience better posture, more energy during the workday and can burn more calories than they would sitting — one estimate is that a person can burn 150 calories an hour while standing. Jim approached David and Reid to join him in developing the standup desk line and he said they have done a great job developing the business plan, doing market research, creating marketing videos, helping import the bamboo from

‘King Kluck’s journey to the Afterlife’ BY KAREN BILLING San Diego Jewish Academy teacher Amy Civin really knows how to preserve history, and keep excitement alive in her classroom. In teaching her students about ancient Egypt and the art of mummification, students spent over three months mummifying a chicken they named King Kluck. E a c h week the students cleaned, re-stuffed, dried and freshened the chicken carcass with “cinnamon showers,” monitoring its weight and other details. Parents were invited to a celebration on March 19 to watch as each group’s King Kluck was wrapped for his final resting spot in sarcophaguses they decorated. The students then read narratives they wrote on King Kluck and enjoyed a feast of treats. While Civin has done the project before, this year she had more chickens and the project was even more hands-on, although admittedly some kids were willing to be more hands-on than the others when it came to the chicken carcasses!

Education Matters/Opinion Letters to the Editor/Opinion San Dieguito grapples with bond restrictions BY MARSHA SUTTON I know, I know … you’re bemoaning another column Marsha Sutton about bonds and school finance. Although it may make your eyes glaze over, there’s a lot of money at stake here, as the San Dieguito Union High School District moves forward with its publicly funded facilities projects. When last we left off, I was crowing about San Dieguito’s willingness to comply with the proposed legislation in Assembly Bill 182 that restricts how bonds are issued. Whether you were in favor of the bond or not, it matters little since that ship has already sailed. The point is, if you’ve got to have taxes (and apparently the voters in San Dieguito think we do), best to do it right. And with new school bond legislation that has popular public appeal and bipartisan support in Sacramento, it makes sense to comply with the proposed rules of AB-182, even though those rules have not yet become law. Voters approved a $449 million facilities bond for

San Dieguito last November, and the district is planning its first of four draws next month. Every draw after that is based on assumptions. “We will not know what is reality until we get closer to each one of those dates,” said Eric Dill, SDUHSD’s associate superintendent of business services, in a meeting Feb. 21. Crystal ball projections include whether – and how much – property values may (or may not) increase in the next few years. “If you had asked other districts in 2004 where they thought their assessed valuation would be in 2008, they would probably have vastly different assumptions than what actually ended up happening,” Dill said. Currently, the district assumes slow growth, “because that’s the reality that we’re living with right now,” he said. SDUHSD took a “very long view” of assessed valuation in the district over time and learned it averaged about 6 percent, he said. “But we never get up to 6 percent in any of our assumptions.” For the next draw, anticipated in 2015, Dill said the district will carefully evaluate the market and the assessed value trends, before

Secrets of Del Mar Canyon Del Mar is blessed with a profusion of parks and open space. Sandwiched between two coastal lagoons (San Dieguito and Los Penasquitos), the smallest city in San Diego County and its neighbors and visitors enjoy the amenities of the perfectly groomed Seagrove Park and Powerhouse Park on the ocean side and the wilder, convoluted coastal shrub landscapes of Crest Canyon and the Torrey Pines Park Extension to the east. The Torrey Pines State Beach and Natural Preserve abuts Del Mar on the south. Bluff-top trails with spectacular ocean views run along the rail route. Dozens of pocket parks dot the neighborhoods of Del Mar and a web of hidden trails and alleys invites exploration. The Del Mar Canyon Preserve is a neglected gem in the abundant system of Del Mar parks. The preserve is located on the coast, west of Camino del Mar (aka Old US 101), near its intersection with Carmel Valley Road. Visitors can park free on the street near the intersection of Fourth Street and Stratford Court (at the foot of Del Mar Heights Road). Then walk south through the Del Mar Woods condos to a foot and bike path that brings you out onto Camino del Mar. The canyon falls away dramatically on your right, a bowl-shaped wonderland of colorful eroded sandstone and green terraces. Two luxury homes and another under construction occupy the upper north slope of the canyon. For the truly adventurous, a steep and twisting dirt trail winds down to the bottom of bowl to a drainage tunnel that runs well beneath the railroad tracks, a wondrous portal that al-

moving forward. “We’re going to be going through this exercise over and over and over again and refining where our projections are,” he said. “It could very well be we get into another period of explosive growth like we had before. If that happens, that will change what the outyear projections will look like.” But the reverse situation is possible. “If things are like they were for the last three years, suddenly we’re looking at negative growth, declines in our assessed valuation,” Dill said. “Then we will have decisions to make at that time. “Do we go out again for another bond? Do we hold off because as we look down the line there won’t be enough to complete all the projects? Do we go for a smaller authorization and just work on specified projects and hope that in two years, three years, things have recovered? “These are all the things we will be doing during the life of this bond project.” Dill said this type of exercise – examining multiyear projections – is done every year when preparing the district’s general fund budget. Districts know the current year’s position and can fairly accurately project lows access to the beach. South of the bowl, at road level, lies a triangle of sandstone bluff top some 300 yards long, honeycombed with social trails, studded with Torrey pines, accented with bright yellow bush sunflower (Encelia californica), and offering breathtaking views of the Pacific. High-flying pelicans pass by at eye-level. The 3.7-acre Del Mar Canyon Preserve, aka Anderson Canyon, was acquired in 1979 with Del Mar open space funds, federal grant money, and the support of the Bardocos and Garro families. Evidence suggests that homeless persons may sometimes overnight under the low-lying pines near the south edge of the bowl — just across the canyon from some of the most expensive real estate in Del Mar. Gordon Clanton teaches Sociology at San Diego State University. He welcomes comments at

the following year’s. “But once you start getting further out, you’re just looking at trends and assumptions,” he said. That’s why multiple series of bonds are issued several years apart – to wait for more growth and to make necessary adjustments, he said. Ken Noah, SDUHSD superintendent, said the district’s finance team has been instructed to adopt “the most conservative assump-

tions on AV growth that would withstand the test of time.” Two ways to achieve increases in assessed valuation of private property are new home sales and turnover of existing homes to new buyers. So assumptions project new home construction as well as existing home sales, known by demographers as the velocity of turnover. Dill said about 4,000 new units have been approved within the district’s See BOND, page 19

Proposed legislation could kill newspapers We join a growing list of community newspapers from across the state in asking our readers to write letters and send emails opposing a bill in Sacramento which, if passed, could literally put many of us out of business. Assembly Bill 642, authored by Anthony Rendon (DBell), proposes to permit the online publishing of public notices by allowing Internet-only entities to become “newspapers of general circulation.” Affected would be the publishing of notices of public meetings and bids, fictitious business statements, name changes, and trustee sales. Rendon, a freshman member of the state Assembly, agreed to carry the legislation at the specific request of AOL (formerly known as America Online), which operates the Patch online local news sites. AOL wants the law changed so that it can steal the precious legal advertising dollars to help infuse new cash onto its struggling news model. AB 642 is similar in scope to last year’s AB 1902, which died in the Assembly Judicial Committee. This new version has been assigned to the same committee for a yet-to-bescheduled hearing. Here are a few of the many reasons it deserves the same fate: • The criteria used to establish an Internet-only entity to be the official newspaper for a community is so weak it would allow any blogger or hobbyist with a laptop, tablet or smart phone to qualify. • AB 642 requires no brick-and-mortar presence, no business office, and therefore, likely no local publisher, editors, local ad staff, no production or circulation staff. A single “regional editor” aggregating content from the worldwide Web and rewriting news created at great expense by real newspapers would qualify. • The Internet is a seek-and-find technology. Newspapers are a “push technology” dependably pushing millions of printed, published and distributed public notices into millions of households and businesses every day. Put another way, AB 642 moves published and distributed public notices from a proven, reliable method of delivery to an uncertain, experimental system requiring the public to identify, seek and find public notices. • Internet-only public notices are undependable, have no permanency; are subject to change; and susceptible to technological failure. Internet connections fail, servers crash, links die and websites are hacked. • We find it improbable that an Internet-based “newspaper” can offer a level of service for the legal advertising dollar that includes filing a proof of publication with the court. Our local Assembly member, Brian Maienschein, is a member of the Judiciary Committee and has emphatically stated his opposition to the bill. However, he is one of only three Republicans on the 10-member committee that is chaired by Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont). If you care about the public’s right to know and the financial viability of newspapers such as this one, please take a few moments within the next week to write or email your opposition to AB 642.

BOND continued from page 18 boundaries, about 2,300 of which are located in Pacific Highlands Ranch. Then there are homes that have been occupied for decades and have seen a major increase in market value over time. “We know we have some very mature communities,” he said. “We see big jumps in AV when those properties turn over.” The new legislation Although some details are still under discussion, the main provisions of AB182 are supported by San Diego County treasurer-tax collector Dan McAllister and California state treasurer Bill Lockyer. The two major conditions that most concern San Dieguito are: 1. A debt ratio of no more than 4 to 1, ensuring that the total cost cannot be more than four times the amount of the principal 2. A maximum maturity of 25 years McAllister is asking all school districts “to take a look at that bill and consider that there’s a good likelihood that these new rules will pass, and to structure any pending bond issuances within the limits of this proposed legislation,” Dill said. The scary words that triggered this legislation are Capital Appreciation bonds, which have acquired widespread notoriety lately. I asked how CABs figured into San Dieguito’s plans. “In our earlier scenarios that we ran, we only had one smaller CAB in our very last issuance,” Dill said. “It was a short-term CAB, and it would have fit into the confines of [AB-182].” He said the decision on the use of CABs would be made later and depended upon assessed value growth. If AV grows faster than anticipated, the last of the four draws might be all Current Interest bonds with no need for CABs, Dill said. “Or maybe we slow down and not issue CABs. We’ll have all of those decisions to make down the line, but we don’t anticipate that for a number of years.” He did guarantee that the first draw will be all Current Interest bonds and no CABs, with less than a 4-to-1 ratio. Although the resolution passed by San Dieguito’s board allows for 32-year bonds, the district intends to reduce that limit to 25 years to comply with the proposed legislation. Ken Noah said the district could legally issue the first series of bonds for longer than 25 years because the law has not yet passed. But he is insisting that the

March 28, 2013 district comply with the proposed rules. Dill said the district is modifying its timeline and is working to repay the debt in 25 years at less than a 3-to-1 ratio. The 25-year limit affects San Dieguito not immediately but in the long-term. “We still have enough room within our current assessed valuation for a 25year term to not affect the first two issuances,” Dill said. “We’d still be able to draw $160 million in Draw One and $125 million in Draw Two.” AB-182 stands a very good chance of passing. So it’s reasonable to follow the advice of Lockyer and McAllister and abide by the public will by complying with proposed laws designed to protect public money from abuse and waste. “We’re going to be under those restrictions anyway,” Dill said. “So it makes sense for us to look at what that structuring under 25 years would do.” The difference for San Dieguito may mean five instead of four issuances and a completion date in 2025 rather than 2020. “We may have to add an additional issuance down the line,” Dill said. “In all likelihood, it would extend the life of our construction program. Today’s estimate is by about five years. “The concern we have is the cost of inflation and increasing construction costs over that extra five years, because our project funds are finite. So if we have to pay increased construction costs, there are projects that are further down the line that we may have to reevaluate.” Bond campaign donations Limiting, or even outlawing, donations to school bond election campaigns by vendors and contractors is a related topic for another day. But Lockyer, in a private interview, told me the issue “is being talked about” in Sacramento. The dreaded “appearance of impropriety” label is applicable any which way districts decide to choose contractors, whether before the bond passes or after, even for those districts trying to avoid the quid-proquo stigma. How to pick contractors on merit, when those contractors who donate to bond campaigns are the best, is the dilemma for honest districts. There is no dilemma for dishonest districts. — Marsha Sutton can be reached at SuttComm@san.rr. com.

APNEA continued from page 3 company ResMed, who convinced him to use the CPAP. “When I first started using it, I was embarrassed. I would hide it when people were coming over to the house,” Headapohl said. As soon as he realized the treatment worked and he was empowering himself not be become a victim, he wasn’t as concerned with hiding it. “Instead of hiding it, I’m putting it out there because it turns out there are a huge number of people that have it,” Headapohl said. His book, “Sleep or Die” was released in July 2012. He wrestled with the tone and title of the book and in the end aimed to take the most serious approach that really hit home the seriousness of sleep apnea. He calls it his “stick book” because he sees himself as hitting people over the head with the information they need to know. In the book he details the different ways to treat sleep apnea, from putting on a CPAP every night to the “simplest but least easy to do” solution of diet and exercise — the heavier a person is, the worse sleep apnea tends to be and sometimes simply losing weight can relieve sleep apnea. With Wake Up To Sleep coaching, he speaks to about

He shares insider tips of “stuff you can only learn the hard way,” like always having two masks when you travel in case you lose one. “The plan is to grow the program so more and more people are involved,” said Headapohl, who sees Wake Up to Sleep as being an invaluable resource for people whatever phase that they’re in, whether they want to hear more about recent research studies or they just want to know how to get their masks to work. This year Headapohl will participate in Sleep 2013, the same conference where he launched his book last year and will be participating in a webinar on April 10. He is also working on his second book on sleep apnea. After the “stick book” this book will be “the carrot,” talking about what’s so great about sleep, taking a more encouraging tone than “Sleep or Die.” He’s interested to see which approach resonates more with people. He’s hoping both. For more information, visit or For more information on headapohl’s book, “Sleep or Die,” visit or go to

Our sports leagues cannot grow because there are no new parks online and there’s no room for new groups to come in… You need an open space where kids can play.” Pacelli said that the open green space shouldn’t have paths going through it because it limits the use. The committee requested the designers expand the turf area where possible.

kidney stones, the amount is far less than in spinach, and as a result the calcium in these two leafy greens is absorbed easier than with spinach. In general, the oxalates in food only decrease the absorption of the calcium found in the specific food, and not so much in other foods eaten at the same time. Sweet Potatoes Replace your white potatoes with sweet potatoes and significantly increase the nutritional benefits. With seven grams of fiber per serving, sweet potatoes have twice as much fiber as other types. They’re also high in vitamins and minerals that are good for your heart. Vitamin B6 helps keep your arteries healthy, and potassium helps your body get rid of excess sodium that can lead to high blood pressure. One medium sweet potato provides the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A or beta-carotene, one of the most powerful antioxidants believed to help prevent several types of cancer. They’re also rich in vitamins C and E. Walnuts Move over, almonds. Walnuts are heart-healthy nutritional champions, providing a good dose of the omega-3 fatty acids that may protect against heart disease, depression and Alzheimer’s, and heart disease. The melatonin found in walnuts helps to boost the immune system. Research shows that eating walnuts regularly can cause LDL or “bad” cholesterol levels to drop by as much as 16 percent. A study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology determined that adding about 10 walnuts to a meal high in saturated fat helped reduce harmful inflammation of the blood vessels. Chia Seeds Who knew that the tiny seeds used to grow Chia Pets could be so good for you? One tablespoon of chia seeds has as much fiber as a bowl of oatmeal. They’re also high in omega-3 fatty acids, calcium and iron. The nutty-tasting seeds absorb liquid and take on a gellike texture, which makes them ideal for adding to soups, smoothies and cereal. Kiwi This tiny fruit has big benefits. Among fruit, kiwifruit has one of the highest concentrations of vitamins and minerals per calorie. Ounce for ounce, kiwi provides twice as much vitamin C as an orange and nearly as much potassium as a banana. It is also a good source of the antioxidant lutein. A Norwegian study found that eating kiwi three times a day was associated with a drop in blood pressure. Kiwi’s are also a good source of vitamin E, and also have an aspirin like effect on platelets without any of the side effects listed for aspirin and other nsaids.

North Coast Aquatics swimmers.

North Coast Aquatics tops at San Diego Senior Classic North Coast Aquatics completed a very successful month of competition by winning the San Diego Senior Classic hosted at San Diego State University. North Coast scored over 1,000 points to take the title against some of the top swimming clubs across California, Nevada and Arizona. Head Coach Jeff Pease and Senior Assistant Coach Mickey Murad then took 17 of the top North Coast high school swimmers to Austin, Texas to compete in the American Short Course Championships. North Coast came away with several top 8 performances against several premier clubs across the United States and several college teams as well. Kelsey Kafka (a senior at Torrey Pines High School) was top performer for NCA with wins in the 100 breast, 200 IM and 400 IM. Other outstanding performances were recorded by Andrew Brady (4th 500 free, 5th 400 IM) Scott Clausen (6th 1650 free, 7th 500 free, 7th 400 IM) Jason O’Brien (6th 500 free) Molly Barry (5th 1650 free, 7th 500 free) Ariel Jordan (7th 200 back) and Gretchen Horbol (200 fly). North Coast also recorded top eight relay finishes in several of the relay events. Head Coach Jeff Pease was quoted as saying, “This was one of our best club meets in several years and a great springboard for great swims later in the spring at the San Diego CIF Championships.” North Coast is a Gold and Silver Medal Club located in Carlsbad and La Jolla.

Kids get their veggies through chocolate milk thanks to local resident’s ‘Sneakz’ BY KAREN BILLING Torrey Pines High School graduate Allison Fowler’s new company is working on taking vegetables from yuck to yum for kids. Her new p r o d u c t Sneakz has found a way to get children a full serving of veggies hidden in a carton of choco- Allison Fowler with her new product Sneakz. late milk. On a mission to prove vegetables are not the enemy, the organic skim chocolate milk packs a hidden punch of sweet potato, carrot and broccoli. “The response from moms and kids has been fantastic. Moms love the nutrition and kids think it tastes just like regular chocolate milk, they can’t get enough of it,” said Fowler, a 1998 graduate of Torrey Pines. Jimbo’s was one of the first retailers to get behind the product and first stocked it on its shelves in December of 2012. Sneakz is now in 148 stores in 12 states and its growth continues. The product’s biggest footprint is in Denver, where Fowler’s co-founding partner Charles Philp is based. “It’s really fun and exciting and I get to wear a fox costume sometimes,” said Fowler of her stints dressed as the Sneakz fox mascot. “You wouldn’t believe how many people want to take pictures with me.” Fowler’s career has always centered on bringing something new and unique to the market, filling a vacant space on consumer’s shelves. She began her career at Miller-Coors, where she was a part of the development of Miller 64, a concept to bring a lighter beer to consumers that would appeal to females. After Miller, she worked for the Kashi Company for four years in product innovation and brand management. “When you’re creating new products, it’s all about creating a unique point of view and solving consumer needs that are unmet,” Fowler said. In addition to rolling out Sneakz, she also works a day job doing business management for her father Ronald Fowler, a Rancho Santa Fe resident See VEGGIES, Page B26

Ira Opper: SB’s father of action sports BY CLAIRE HARLIN He was an early pioneer bringing beach volleyball and the concept of action sports to ESPN. He was one of the producers behind the first regional sports cable network that eventually became Fox Sports Prime Ticket. He has the largest surf film archive in the world — and he’s lived in Solana Beach for more than 30 years. Ira Opper, owner of Opper Sports Productions (OSP), is a native Southern Californian who started skateboarding when he was 12 years old — on a piece of plywood attached to his sister’s roller skate wheels — and began surfing shortly after that. He said he would hitchhike with his friends to the top of a hill in his Los Angeles-area neighborhood and they’d roll down, filming each other with Opper’s 8mm film camera, borrowed from his grandfather. “We actually destroyed a couple of them,” Opper laughed, adding that he passed up trade classes like wood and auto shop in high school to take photography. While those classes laid the foundation for his career in film, it was Opper’s love of surfing and boarding that inspired and guided him along the way, launching top networks and popular programs before starting OSP nearly 20 years ago so he could focus on two topics: extreme sports and the environment. But

Ira Opper and Gerri Retman-Opper in Northern California filming ‘Surfer Magazine TV’ for ESPN extreme sports — or action sports, as some call it — wasn’t always accepted as the uber popular and growing multibillion-dollar industry that it is today. “The networks, they used to call action sports trash sports,” said Opper, now 64. “Corporate ESPN executives em-

braced pro sports but they called us trash producers. They called it that until Opper, working under his company, Frontline Video & Film, introduced to ESPN the concept of action sports — which has since taken on names such as extreme sports and adventure sports — with snowboard and jet ski competitions, as well as surfing’s first nationally distributed magazine-format series, “Surfer Magazine TV.” He later produced “The Surfer’s Journal” documentaries, which aired weekly on OLN and National Geographic Adventure “I traveled all around the world documenting the sport of surfing,” Opper said. Back then, skateboarding, snowboarding, jetskiing and other extreme sports grew out of surfing’s popularity, he said, and even the action sports clothing brands grew from guys in their garages crafting clothing and gear that wouldn’t fall apart while in action. “Skateboarding was at one time something kids just did when there was no surf, and then the sport got a life of its own,” he said “like in the beginning snowboarding was banned on most mountains until the early 1990s; snowboarders were all known as rabble-rousers.” See OPPER, Page B23

‘An Evening of Fashion and Fantasy’ highlights work of designer Zandra Rhodes

Zandra Rhodes with Erika Torri, flanked by two models whose former clients have included Princess Diana, Bianca Jagger, Freddie Mercury and many Hollywood celebrities. From her early years at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, where her peer was David Hockney, Rhodes discovered textile design then created her own outfits crafted around her unique fabrics when she was stymied by a conservative apparel industry, she said.


When a Rhodes original was modeled by actress Natalie Wood and photographed by the former U.S. Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, it catapulted Rhodes to fame and her unique style began to develop. A trip to China in 1979 introduced Rhodes to lyrical images of dragons and water and her signature, “wiggle” was born. In her lecture, looking back over five decades, Rhodes showed dra-

matic images of her textiles and fashion, as well as an insider peek at her Londonbased print studio, where a 27-foot-long section is devoted solely to the screening of her three-color pigment textile designs. Turning her attention to the exhibit of prints at the University Club, Rhodes explained that she used an earlier body of work based on a visit to Africa as inspiration for the costumes and

sets of Verdi’s “Aida.” Her 1986 “Secrets of the Nile Collection” — infused with a color palette of turquoise, gold, orange and lapis lazuli blue — and the “spectacular jewelry and the pleated figure-hugging dresses of the pharaohs” were adapted to create her theatrical opera designs, said Rhodes. Rhodes first worked for San Diego Opera when she created costumes and sets for Mozart’s “The Magic Flute,” followed by Bizet’s “Pearl Fishers” which subsequently went on to tour San Francisco, New York, Washington and Montreal. Internationally acclaimed, the brilliantly colored, heavily patterned sets and costumes for “Aida” will be seen this April in San Diego for the first time. Italian conductor Daniele Callegari will make his San Diego Opera debut with Andrew Sinclair directing. The show will run from April 20 through April 28. Visit To see Rhodes’ exhibition, call the University Club concierge at (619) 234 5200 to arrange a visit. Her artwork will be displayed through April 29. Visit www. to learn more about Rhodes’ vast body of work.


‘Princess Amneris’

A New Play For Family Audiences!

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY DIANE Y. WELCH An exhibition of flamboyant Egyptian-inspired prints add a splash of color to the walls of the historic University Club of San Diego, located on the top floor of the Symphony Hall building in downtown San Diego. The archival prints — signed giclée sketches and drawings for the opera “Aida” — are the work of Del Mar-based British haute couture designer Zandra Rhodes, acclaimed for her color-infused, dramatic artistry. The exhibition is in partnership with La Jolla’s Athenaeum Music and Arts Library, which first showcased the exhibition in 2010. On March 14, Julie Walke, the University Club’s arts committee chair, introduced Rhodes to a sold-out crowd at a special reception, “An Evening of Fashion and Fantasy,” that featured prints of opera costume and set designs, accessories, books and more from Rhodes’ vast collections. Guests in attendance were treated to a rare presentation by Rhodes, who gave a humble history of her creative journey on the path to her current stature as a much-loved and collected award-winning designer

■ This week’s recipe: Souplantation’s Summer Lemon with Spiced Pecans Tossed Salad

Souplantation’s Carmel Valley location includes an enclosed patio with windows and heat lamps.

BY KELLEY CARLSON ach visit to Souplantation is nearly always a fresh experience. It’s not just because the food is prepared daily and most of the ingredients are grown locally, it’s also due to the fact that a patron can customize his or her meal every time they eat there, whether it’s a different soup, a variation in salad dressing, or a dessert that is only being offered that month. Of the 128 operating Souplantation restaurants, the Carmel Valley location is the first to undergo the farmers market-style remodel, and it held a grand reopening on Feb. 28. The dining room now has a more updated, contemporary look: The glass partitions between booths have been removed; new hardwood floors have been installed; there’s a brand-new salad bar, chalkboard menus, modern glasses and dishware; and background music includes contemporary pop music by artists such as John Mayer and Sheryl Crow. A communal table gives guests more of an opportunity to interact. “We’re all about choices,” emphasized Tammy Bailey, chief marketing officer of Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp., parent company of Souplantation. Guests start their experience at the allyou-can-eat establishment by picking up a tray just inside the front doors, and most begin with the buffet-style salad bar, which features plenty of leafy greens and seemingly endless options of garnishes and dressings. Meanwhile, the Souplantation chefs slice and dice colorful vegetables in the middle of the salad bar. To the left of the salad bar are eight varieties of made-from-scratch soups, hot pastas (traditional marinara and fettuccine), baked goods, and soft-serve ice cream with four types of toppings. And just beyond the salad bar are the


Classic Creamy Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese Focaccia sprinkled with Ritz crackers are specialties in March.

Mandarin Spinach Salad with Caramelized Walnuts is one of the featured items this month. PHOTOS BY KELLEY CARLSON beverages, including freshly made Strawberry Lemonade, several types of brewed teas and fountain drinks. Local beers and wines will be offered soon, Bailey said. Along with the daily standard items, Souplantation has a monthly promotional menu. For example, this month — themed “Feel Like a Kid Again!” — there’s Grilled Cheese Focaccia sprinkled with Ritz crackers, which is ideal for dipping in the Classic Creamy Tomato Soup; Chocolate Brownie Muffins with bits of chocolate chunks; and the lightly dressed Mandarin Spinach Salad with Caramelized Walnuts.

Next month will highlight lemons. In addition, there are Limited Time Offers, or LTOs, on weekends, which often consist of warm desserts such as chocolate cake or red velvet cake at dinnertime, and the restaurant occasionally has holiday brunches. While the majority of the fare is all-youcan-eat and included in a base price, there are a few “add-ons.” For example, there are skewers for vegetarians and meat lovers: cage-free chicken marinated with rosemary and garlic; Niman Ranch beef seasoned with salt and pepper; and Mozzarella and Tomato with pieces separated by aromatic basil leaves. There are also decadent chocolate and vanilla bean cupcakes in mini and regular sizes; and large, indulgent cookies, including one with huge chunks of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Once patrons have chosen their items, they have the option of sitting in the large dining room — which was recently remodeled — or on the patio. The much smaller, enclosed patio can be just as lively, but it also can be a respite from the indoor activity. The lights strung along the ceiling provide a festive touch; heat lamps and windows moderate the temperatures. Regardless of where one sits, servers make sure to stop by each table and offer cookie “samples” such as Snickerdoodles. The staff is an asset at assisting with seatings and guiding guests with specific dietary needs. Bailey advises patrons to rely on the servers for advice on how to enhance the Souplantation experience. “They know all the tricks of the trade,” Bailey said, such as placing croutons in the bottom of a cup and pouring the soup on top. “They know the ‘secret recipes’ that have been created over the years.”

‘Snooze, an AM Eatery’ to open at Del Mar Highlands Town Center •Sno oze to replace IHOP BY KAREN BILLING “Snooze, an AM Eatery” is coming to Del Mar Highlands Town Center, replacing IHOP. IHOP’s lease expires on March 31 and Snooze aims to open its doors for “breakfast all day and brunch all the time” by July or August this summer. Snooze currently has five locations in Colorado and a very popular location in Hillcrest. “We’re very excited about it,” said Rebecca Long, who handles marketing and community work for the restaurant group and whose official title is “All Purpose Flour” in a nod to Snooze’s playful concept. “The food, the ambiance are all a part of it. We’re all about friendly, fun service, as well as the great food.” Snooze’s menu changes seasonally and they use local and organic ingredients as much as possible. Their decadent pineapple upside down pancake is what they are known for and is always an option on the menu no matter the season. The evolving menu features a variety of egg options from creative benedicts to

“Snooze, an AM Eatery” is coming to Del Mar Highlands. It will be the second San Diego location, as the first is in Hillcrest. Photo/Karen Billing breakfast tacos. Their generous portions include picks like the OMG! French Toast, a fresh brioche stuffed with mascarpone and topped with vanilla crème, salted caramel, agave soaked strawberries and toasted coconut. The menu also includes “brunchy fare,” twists on classic lunch cuisine. Snooze also serves up a variety of mimosas (they have Snooze Booze champagne on tap, made exclusively for Snooze by Infinite Monkey Theorem) and Bloody Mary’s with infused vodkas. Anyone who has been to the Hillcrest location knows that there is a wait involved. “We can say that Hillcrest is our busiest location. Saturdays and Sundays the wait is up to two hours,” Long said. “We are very honored that people are willing to wait.” The design of the restaurant will have some of the Hillcrest elements, but will also have its own look. Long said they hope to incorporate a lot of re-purposed and recycled décor. “We like to say all of our restaurants are like sisters and

brothers. They have the same last name but take on their own personality,” Long said. Like Hillcrest, Carmel Valley’s restaurant will have a big garage door opening but will also have a large open patio, bigger than the downtown location’s. Long said Snooze places a big focus on sustainability. Their Hillcrest location was one of the first restaurants in the city to compost, their buildings, rely on natural light and with their “12 Months of Green” project they aim to educate staff and customers on a new sustainability topic every month, from chemicals to energy efficiency. Being a part of the neighborhood is also a big focus for Snooze. Long said 1 percent of their total sales goes to help an organiza-

tion in the community. In Hillcrest they have partnered with the ARTS (A Reason to Survive) organization; the Monarch School for homeless students; and The Center (San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center). Long is currently looking for community partners in this area. “When we were looking for our second location in San Diego, we were looking for an independent, unique neighborhood that we feel like we can join,” said Long. “With Hillcrest it was a fun, artsy and active community, and we feel there’s the same thing with Carmel Valley/Del Mar.” For more information, visit http://www.

CCA student composer Emily Laliotis presents ‘Eurydice’ to Sage Canyon 6th grade students Canyon Crest Academy junior, Emily Laliotis, and CCA Theater Director Tarla Hill presented “Eurydice” to sixth graders at Sage Canyon Elementary School on March 26. “‘Eurydice’ is an adaption of mythology to everyday life,” says Hill. “The play is particularly relevant to these students, as they study mythology during 6th grade, and seeing this show would be a wonderful tie-in to their studies.” In fact, the show perfectly meshes with California’s sixth grade social studies curriculum goal to “explain the significance of Greek mythology and how Greek literature continues to permeate our literature and language today. A live theatre performance will truly bring the show to life for these kids,” said Hill. Five classes of sixth graders, over 100 students, attended the presentation. Hill took time to explain “Eurydice” and give some background on the playwright Sara Ruhl to the students, who listened attentively and asked questions of both Hill and Laliotis.

Tarla Hill and Emily Laliotis at Sage Canyon Elementary School. Laliotis, who composed 10 original songs for the show, brought her guitar and performed the opening song, her favorite “I’ll Follow You,” for the students. At the completion of her song, one student asked Laliotis, “What inspires you?” Laliotis replied “My musical inspiration spans from Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) and Anaïs Mitchell to Crosby, Stills, and Nash and the Goat Rodeo Sessions. I take inspiration from anyone who has been able to capture the soul and love in music.” CCA drama teacher and the show’s director, Tarla Hill, extended an invitation to teachers to bring their classes to a special proposed afternoon showing, and Hill is embarking

Couple shares love of antiques and five generations of heritage at Bellini’s in SB BY CLAIRE HARLIN He was a fifth-generation Italian antique businessman. She was the coowner of a family antique business in Solana Beach. They met at an antique auction he was managing in Vista in 2001, fell in love, and in 2002, Bellini’s Antique Italia was born. Jacopo and April Bellini’s store, where shoppers can often find Italian relics dating back to the 16th century, stood at the southeast corner of Cedros Avenue and Lomas Santa Fe Drive for about a decade before it moved to its current, more visible location across the street, where people driving to the beach or strolling the Design District can catch a glimpse through the window of ornate pieces of decor and sparkling chandeliers. But the Solana Beach landmark isn’t the first Bellini’s — Jacopo’s father also had an antique business, as did his father’s father, in Jacopo’s hometown of Milan, Italy. He said the first family business was in existence around 1850 in Florence and was run by his great-

Jacopo and April Bellini great-grandfather. But back then, he said, the antique business was defined more by dealers and traders working out of warehouses than shop owners selling to the general public. “Now it’s about decoration, but back then it was about people collecting something they liked, something that was uncommon or strange or an artist’s work that had perceived

value,” Jacopo said, adding that the first antique collectors in his family were collecting items dating back to the 15th century — items that would likely now be locked away in a museum or worth millions. Jacopo’s father, for instance, collects angel wings that were removed or broken off of statues during the early 1900s or prior, when sculptures — usually in the

Happy Easter From All Your Favorite Flavors


form of winged angels or demons — were most commonly commissioned by the church. “There was a time when people didn’t like the religious sculptures,” he said. “They wanted something different so they took the wings off to not have the religious connotation, and it was hard to find a sculpture that wasn’t commissioned by the church.”

Bellini’s keeps up the tradition of accommodating collectors, who will let Jacopo know what they are looking for before the shop owner heads off on his quests for antiques. Jacopo takes several trips to Italy each year, spending up to three weeks there, both visiting his family in Milan and traveling nationwide, visiting his sources who buy directly from private people and families, many of whom have held on to the antiques through many generations. “Sometimes you can even get the story of a piece when it’s been in the family,” he said, adding that items are all packed carefully and fumigated for 28 days before being shipped in bulk to the U.S. If someone tried to buy a single item in Italy and ship it back under the same requirements, he said the process would be much more expensive. The oldest items at the shop right now are a 17th century prayer bench, as well as some ornate wooden doors from that same time period. The couple recently sold a 17th century

• 52 Rotating Flavors • 30 Delicious Toppings • Fresh Fruits • Non-Fat and Low Calorie

Venetian headboard for $14,000. When it comes to seeking out items to sell in their shop, the couple has always employed a collaborative process. Jacopo even sends April photos from Italy of items in order to get her feedback. “We kind of complete each other,” Jacopo said. April added, “We love what we do and the pieces we sell, and we share an appreciation for the story behind them. I always think about the time period, that maybe the person who made it was carving by candlelight, and I think about the tools they chiseled it with … It’s an honor to bring these pieces here and to be able to provide them to others who might not know about them … It’s about sharing the love and appreciation, but also the educational aspect.” For more information, visit www.belliniimports. com.

Ballet Arte Academy male dancers awarded scholarships When most people think of ballet, they envision little girls in pink tights and tutus. Within this era, male dancers are no longer just supporting partners. They are stars in their own right and highly in demand in the world of ballet. The Petit Oasis Foundation is a nonprofit organization offering scholarships by audition to boys between the ages of 8 and 18 who strive to be professional ballet dancers. The scholarships are awarded to help cover the students ballet school tuition and/or summer intensive program for that year. Each year the Foundation holds an audition for interested male applicants from across Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego Counties. Each applicant who shows realistic potential to be professional ballet dancers must show, besides excellent training, physical attributes, motivation, intelligence, musicality, personality, improvisation and progress shown compared to previous years. Ballet Arte Academy of Classical Ballet in Solana Beach recently announced that this year, three of its male students were awarded scholarships from the Petit Oasis Foundation: Spencer Lenain (10), Brian Warkentien (13) and Takumi Morin (15). For more information, visit or call (858) 259-5505.

In addition, the staff lounge was decorated, parent volunteers dressed up and served orange juice and sparkling cider as the staff walked in, and teachers were met with a variety of other special surprises.

cable programming, so he decided to get Cox Cable to air his documentary. But when his project was deemed too controversial by the company, he fought back at the Santa Barbara City Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We mobilized the community and informed them of the new cable laws for public access and ended up having Cox Cableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s franchise up for termination for violating the FCC,â&#x20AC;? Opper said. Cox sent some corporate guys in suits from their offices in Atlanta to the laidback beach town â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;to see who all these rabble-rousers were,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But instead they found a group of passionate filmmakers,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And in lieu of a public fight they gave me a job.â&#x20AC;? Working

continued from page B1 After graduating Arizona State University with a broadcast journalism degree, Opper admits he was quite the rabble-rouser himself, or at least he made some big cable executives think he was when he was living in Santa Barbara back in the early 1970s, when Cox refused airing a documentary he made about the dangers of nuclear waste. The film featured Ralph Nader, â&#x20AC;&#x153;an underground environmental heroâ&#x20AC;? at that time, Opper said. The problem Opper, then a 22-year-old director, saw was this: Santa Barbara was surrounded by mountains and only could view

with Cox to build up the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local cable programing was not only one of Opperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first major successes, but it created â&#x20AC;&#x153;a electronic soapboxâ&#x20AC;? of programming for public, educational and governmental use which was highly embraced by viewers to this day. Opper said the experience also introduced him to local city government and enlightened him in the process of taking on an issue and moving it forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw the effects on business, government and in return gave the community a unique resource â&#x20AC;Ś It was all very enlightening,â&#x20AC;? said Opper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But deep down my real ambition was to get into sports television.â&#x20AC;? That goal came to fruition when A&G Productions

invited Opper to San Diego to help start a regional sport network called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Box Seat,â&#x20AC;? and Opper settled in Solana Beach â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where he was drawn to the beach and the eclecticism, and has stayed ever since. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within six months Jerry Buss of the Lakers bought â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Box Seatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and moved it to L.A., and there was no way I was leaving Solana Beach,â&#x20AC;? Opper said, who started Frontline Video & Film when he decided to stay. Opper has been involved in the community with his wife of 27 years, Gerri Retman-Opper, through milestones such as the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incorporation. The two have attended local civic meetings, served on committees and worked on many City Council cam-

paigns. In addition, Gerri â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at the initial nudge of her husband â&#x20AC;&#x201D; spearheaded a 15 plus years-long battle to preserve from development the Gateway Property. Gerri and The San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy mustered up funding from local lenders to buy the property in December 2011, and Gerri was honored for her efforts last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both of us have similar values and goals and desires to see this beach community continue to be the jewel of California coast,â&#x20AC;? Opper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through so much together to make that happen and look what has been accomplished; It just makes us more and more empowered to contribute to make Solana Beach an awesome community.â&#x20AC;?

VEGGIES continued from page B1 who owns Liquid Investments Incorporated, a San Diego beer distributorship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is my early morning, nights and weekend passion,â&#x20AC;? Fowler said. The idea for Sneakz was born out of the troubling statistic that three-fourths of Americans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get their daily vegetable servings. Additionally, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an age-old battle getting children to eat their veggies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought if you could make vegetables fun and more approachable and help moms sneak them in, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be doing a family a good service,â&#x20AC;? Fowler said. Fowler also noted that the flavored milk industry was big but there was no healthy alternative to chocolate milk. Normal chocolate milk has about 22 grams of sugar while Sneakz has 19 grams, and a majority of those sugars comes from the milk and the vegetables. They just add a touch of organic evaporated cane juice for taste. One carton also includes 50 percent of a daily recommended serving of Vitamin A and, unlike normal chocolate milk, it contains fiber, nine grams worth. Fowler and Philp experimented with potential mix-

es in Fowlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen with her juicer, discovering how cocoa can disguise a lot of the green notes of veggies. There were a lot of different iterationsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the first versions were very thick because a full serving of vegetables is a substantial amount to hide. Young taste testers were employed to try out their concoctions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it tastes like spinach milk than kids are not going to drink it. And kids are very honest, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you if they like it or they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? Fowler said. They played with different levels once they found the magic mixture of sweet potato, carrots and broccoli, and then worked with a food developer to take the formula to the next level. Hoping to expand the Sneakz brand of products, Fowler is looking into a non-dairy option as sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s received a lot of feedback from mothers of children who are dairy-sensitive. They also aim to try new flavors such as a snickerdoodle flavor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eventually the platform will be not just a beverage and we could take it to any aisle of the grocery store,â&#x20AC;? said Fowler, who has visions of sneaking vegetables into crackers, yogurts and more.

Celebrate April Fool’s with fun and freaky foods The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN As I stroll down the produce aisles of the market, I do a double take at the stunning purple and amber carrots, orange heads of cauliflower, white strawberries and blood red limes. I gawk at the ugly heirloom tomatoes and marvel at the bilateral navel that is half yellow, half orange in perfect symmetry (more about that one later).
