BY JOE TASH The sounds of thundering hooves, cheering crowds and ringing cash registers could become a fall fixture in San Diego County, if a proposal to expand horse racing at the Del Mar Race-
track receives approval from state regulators. The board of the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which runs the stateowned Del Mar Fairgrounds, approved a plan to add a fall race meet in both 2014 and 2015 at its meeting on Tuesday, June 4. The new fall race dates would be in addition to the normal summer race meet which takes place
in July, August and early September. Fall racing was last held at Del Mar in 1967. The expanded racing season could also put San Diego in the running for hosting the Breeder’s Cup, a two-day horse racing event that some local officials have said is bigger than the Super Bowl in terms of economic im-

BY JOE TASH The Del Mar City Council took final action Monday, June 3, on new ordinances that will ban dogs and other pets from a tot lot and adjacent lawn at Powerhouse Park, and prohibit the use of charcoal grills at city beaches and parks. The council voted unanimously to approve both new laws, which had been introduced and approved at previous council meetings. Both new laws will take effect 30 days after the council meeting. Council members said they took both actions to protect public

safety. The pet-free zone is intended to protect small children from potential contamination caused by pet waste in the tot lot and lawn area, while the charcoal grill ban is aimed at reducing the risk of injury from hot coals buried in the sand or dumped in trash cans. Propane gas grills will still be allowed at city parks and beaches, and permits can be obtained to allow charcoal grills for special events. The council also voted Monday to move the teen curfew up to 10 p.m. from 11 p.m., to conform with surrounding jurisdictions.

BY JOE TASH The Del Mar City Council approved a two-year spending plan at its meeting on Monday, June 3, that includes a 1.5 percent pay increase for general employees starting Jan. 1, and adds no new full-time employees to the city payroll. The council approved the budget on a 4-0 vote, with Councilwoman Lee Haydu absent. The operations and capital improvement budgets for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 fiscal years are $19.1 million and $19.3 million respective-
ly, according to a city staff report. Those amounts include allocations of $11.8 million and $11.9 million for capital projects in each of the two budget years. The city’s fiscal year begins on July 1. According to the staff report, no money is allocated in the budget for management, professional or firefighter salary increases, due to a review of the city’s “compensation philosophy.” The budget eliminates funding for a vacant senior lifeguard position and a clean water manager position.
Major upgrade work on Highway 101 through Solana Beach to be finished by fair opening BY JOE TASH By the time the San Diego County Fair opens on Saturday, June 8, major street and sidewalk work on a $7 million upgrade of Highway 101 through Solana Beach will be completed, four months ahead of schedule. The project made it tough on businesses along the corridor, as construction work closed traffic lanes and temporarily eliminated parking spaces. But merchants who made it through the disruptions since construction began last July are optimistic that the project will be worth it in the long run. “From everything I see it looks like they put thought into it and it’s going to be nice,” said Jeff Moore, owner of Solana Succulents, a specialty nursery at 355 N. Highway 101. Sue Kelly, who owns both Fairbanks Interiors, an interior decorating business, and a dress boutique on Highway 101, said her retail shop would not have made it through the construction if not for the support of the interior design studio, which doesn’t rely as much on foot or vehicle traffic.

Del Mar to seek lease of transit district property
Driver of classic car seriously injured in Carmel Valley accident
BY JOE TASH The city of Del Mar will seek to work out a lease agreement for a small parcel of land owned by the North County Transit District. The lot at San Dieguito Drive and Jimmy Durante Boulevard would be used for parking to improve access to the San Dieguito Lagoon and the Coast to Crest Trail, and to establish a walkway along San Dieguito Road, said a city staff report. The City Council authorized City Manager Scott Huth to finalize the lease agreement on a 4-0 vote at its Monday, June 3, meeting. The report said it will cost an estimated $25,000 to add gravel and striping for parking, install signage and a machine to collect parking fees, and conduct environmental studies. The city must also pay $11,000 to the transit district for appraisal and survey costs. The proposed lease agreement calls for the city to pay $2,550 per year in rent, plus half of the net income from parking fees. Rent would be forgiven until the city’s up-front capital costs are recovered. According to the staff report, the city anticipates that during most of the year, the public will be allowed to park in the lot for a limited charge, or no fee at all. During the San Diego County Fair, horse racing season and other special events, the lot would be operated on a market rate basis, and the revenue would be used to repay the costs of improvements.
BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A classic car rear-ended a sedan at a red light in Carmel Valley early June 2, and the driver of the 1962 Ford Fairmount was seriously injured, a police officer said. The classic car crashed into the back of a 2008 Chevy sedan that had been stopped at the intersection of Del Mar Heights Road and High Bluff Drive at about 12:30 a.m., San Diego Police Officer David Stafford said. The Fairmount’s driver, identified only as a woman in her 30s, broke her upper leg and her jaw in the crash, Stafford said. The Chevy’s driver, a woman in her late 20s, was not injured, he said. Police did not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, according to Stafford.
New principal hired for Solana Pacific School The Solana Beach School District Board of Education recently announced that Elisa Fregoso will be the new principal at Solana Pacific School in Carmel Valley. Fregoso will assume her assignment at Solana Pacific School in August 2013. Fregoso comes to the Solana Beach School District from Escondido Union School District where she has served as an elementary school principal since 2003. With more than 18 years of education experience, she has served as an elementary and middle school teacher, special program director, assistant principal, and principal. Fregoso said, “I attribute my success as a teacher and administrator to working with very talented professionals and seeking out mentors who have been instrumental in guiding and supporting my career. By far, the best part of my job is working with students, teachers, and parents to ensure our children have every opportunity to become the very best they can be!” Current Solana Pacific School principal, Brian McBride, will retire at the end of the 2012-13 school year after 13 years with district.

Scripps Institution of Oceanography honors filmmaker James Cameron for support of deep sea exploration BY LYNNE FRIEDMANN Filmmaker James Cameron stepped out from behind the camera and into the spotlight last week as recipient of the 2013 Nierenberg Prize for Science in the Public Interest, bestowed by Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO). Best known as the director of such box-office blockbusters as “Titanic” and “Avatar,” Cameron is also an ocean frontier explorer who last year achieved a record- breaking solo dive to the deepest part of the ocean aboard the 24foot long submersible DEEPSEA CHALLENGER, a vessel he helped design and develop in conjunction with SIO. “When I got into the sub and they bolted it shut, I knew every part of it,” said Cameron. The Deepsea Challenger is a science platform with the ability to collect rock, sediment, and biology samples. It is also equipped with lights and a suite of wide-field and macro 3-D high-definition cameras. Privately funded, the top-secret design and construction took seven years to complete and includes a companion “lander” system, an unmanned sampling device that also acts as a baited lure to attract fish and other animals, concentrating them for photography and behavioral studies. Cameron’s descent to 11 kilome- ters (6.8 miles) took him to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, in the Pacific Ocean southwest of Guam. At this depth, equipment must withstand pressures of 16,300 pounds per square inch, the equivalent weight of “two Humvees on your thumbnail,” Cameron said. In addition to being a technological and engineering feat, the dive discovered new species and new insights into the essentially unexplored Hadal zone, named after Hades, the Greek god of the underworld. And, a mysterious realm it is, encompassing an area larger than the landmass of North America. “We stumbled into the 21st century thinking we had explored the world only to find we’d missed an entire continent,” Cameron said. Cameron’s contribution to deep sea science continues with his donation of the sophisticated lander device, along with his $25,000 Nierenberg Prize money to kickstart operations of a new “Lander Lab” based at SIO. “As a workhorse, you can’t beat the lander,” Cameron said. Sampling components on the 14-foot, 1,000-pound lander can be configured in numerous ways to address vari-
marine researchers. Cameron hopes this fuels interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education. “The true value of what we did was inspirational,” said Cameron, who as a child, had his own interest in science kindled by the work of undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau. Joking that “I make movies to pay for the dives,” Cameron was asked whether the images he captured underwater will translate to the big screen in “Avatar 2” and “Avatar 3.” “The videos go into the scientific archives. The images go into my imagination,” he said. “And, I’ve seen things in the deep ocean that will inspire me for the rest of my life.” Cameron appears on the cover of the June issue of National Geographic and is profiled in the story: “The New Explorers: The Risks They Take.” The Nierenberg Prize for Science in the Public Interest was awarded to Cameron on May 31. The prize is awarded annually by SIO, is named for the late William A. Nierenberg, a renowned national science leader who served as SIO director from 1965 to 1986. Past Nierenberg Prize winners include Jane Goodall, Sir David Attenborough, J. Craig Venter and Walter Cronkite.

SIO plans to put the lander system back to work in the deep ocean as soon as this month. Cameron is donating the Deepsea Challenger submersible to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts. Transporting it from California affords the opportunity for a “sub tour” of the United States in which school children will be able to get up close to the vessel and speak with

DM resident’s new book addresses issues surrounding prostate cancer treatment BY JOE TASH Dr. Jay Cohen’s mind reeled in December 2011 when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Should he immediately have surgery that could cause serious side effects, or move cautiously, gathering more information to better assess his options? “Imagine being single at 66, impotent and incontinent. I cannot Dr. Jay Cohen fathom it. On the other hand, imagine dying slowly, agonizingly, of prostate cancer. Tough choices,” Cohen, a Del Mar resident, wrote in his new book, “Prostate Cancer Breakthroughs: A Step-by-Step Guide to Cutting-Edge Diagnostic Tests and 8 Medically-Proven Treatments.” Cohen, 67, is a psychiatrist and author, who has researched and written eight books and articles, many dealing with the side effects of medications. But, as he wrote in his latest book, when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he found himself in uncharted territory. The experience led him to embark on a quest to learn as much as he could about the disease, the best diagnostic tools and recent advances in treatment options. The selfpublished book is available at Amazon.com. In the book — and in an interview — Cohen said twothirds or more of men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer don’t need aggressive treatment such as surgery or radiation. He argued that doctors tend to “overtreat” prostate cancer, causing many men to suffer unnecessarily from harsh side effects. In his case, Cohen said he was scheduled for surgery when he learned about a test called advanced prostate MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), which is available at only a limited number of clinics in the U.S. Another key tool, he said, is the color Doppler ultrasound. Both tests, he said, provide information about the patient’s specific cancer, which in turn can help them determine how to proceed. After tests and second opinions, Cohen decided not to have treatment, but instead to monitor his cancer and only
get treatment if his situation changes. He said many men have non-aggressive forms of prostate cancer that don’t require immediate treatment. It’s now been 18 months since his diagnosis, Cohen said, and his cancer hasn’t advanced. He said he will need follow-up tests for the rest of his life to track any potential changes in his cancer. His purpose in writing the book, Cohen said, is to let men know about alternatives to immediate, aggressive cancer treatment and its potential side effects. He believes that in coming years, the medical profession will embrace the approach he advocates. While surgery or radiation may be appropriate for some patients, for others treatment is unnecessary, he said. “I’m not trying to criticize, I’m just trying to get the system to move along a little faster,” he said. Dr. Carl Rossi, a radiation oncologist and medical director of a proton therapy cancer center that Scripps Health will open later this summer in Mira Mesa, said Cohen is correct that doctors do tend to overtreat people with prostate cancer. But that is because doctors lack tools to determine with relative certainty two things: the life expectancy of individual patients, and how a patient’s particular cancer will behave over his lifetime. Deciding on treatment is easier when the patient has a life expectancy of several decades and a strong likelihood of being cured, Rossi said. The problem is that non-aggressive prostate cancer progresses over time to become more dangerous, Rossi said. The trick for doctors and patients is assessing how soon that change might occur. Rossi noted that no “flashing light” comes on to indicate when the time for treatment has arrived. “It’s a calculated risk,” he said, because if a patient waits too long, the cancer may progress to the point where it is no longer curable or requires even more aggressive treatment than would have been needed at the time of diagnosis. “This question comes up all the time when I’m meeting with patients,” he said. Patients must decide whether to be treated right away and risk side effects such as sexual dys-
function and loss of bladder control, or wait and see if treatment is needed later. Cohen and Rossi agreed on the need for men over 50 to have regular PSA, or prostate-screening antigen, tests, which can detect very early cancers. The topic is controversial, because some medical advocacy groups have said routine PSA tests can lead to overtreatment of non-aggressive prostate cancers. Cohen and Rossi said the PSA test remains the best early warning system for prostate cancer, and that regular PSA testing has dramatically reduced death rates from the disease. Cohen said he is confident that with regular testing, he and his doctors can keep tabs on his cancer, and determine if he needs treatment. More likely, he said, is that his cancer will remain slow-growing and non-aggressive, and treatment won’t be needed. Canceling his surgery, he said, was the best course for him. “I feel I was lucky as hell, and yes, I definitely made the right decision,” he said. Cohen will speak before the Informed Prostate Cancer Support Group on at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 15. The group meets at the Sanford-Burnham Auditorium, 10905 Road to the Cure (formerly Altman Row), San Diego, 92121.

Torrey Pines Senior wins national Japanese speech contest • Heads to Tokyo to compete for international honors Dacoda Strack, a senior at Torrey Pines High School, competed against 15 other non-native Japanese speakers from high schools across the United States May 25 at UC Irvine in a contest sponsored by the Aurora Foundation in association with the National Japanese Language Teachers and the Consulate General of Japan in Los Angeles. He won first place honors and was awarded $1,000 and a trip to Tokyo this summer to compete in the international contest. He placed third last year in the same contest and Torrey Pines presented a certificate to him for “Outstanding Achievement in World Language.” Dacoda said, “I first became interested in languages during 5th grade when I read a Japanese comic called Fullmetal Alchemist. After looking more into it and becoming more interested in Japanese comics/animation, I started to wonder if I could delve even more into the culture by attempting to
TPHS senior Dacoda Strack with his award. learn the language by myself. “I started to study on my own — going from website to website looking for free Japanese courses. At the time I didn’t study any other languages, though. I was pretty much only interested in learning Japanese. My first Japanese class was in 7th grade. Then after taking Spanish for three years, I
came back my junior year to take Japanese III and now this year I’m taking AP Japanese.” Besides Japanese, Dacoda also is proficient in Spanish and French. “In 8th grade I took Spanish I the first semester, then, at my teacher’s suggestion, I took Spanish II the second semester. During the summer I studied from the Spanish III textbook so that I could take Spanish IV the next year. After that, during my sophomore year I took AP Spanish. I’ve taken two years of French. Last year I took French III and now I’m in AP French.” In addition to these languages, Dacoda has also dabbled with Russian, German, a tiny bit of Chinese, Portuguese and Romanian. Dacoda, who graduates June 13 from Torrey Pines High School, will be attending the University of California Irvine this fall as an engineering student. Over the summer he is saving for college by tutoring Japanese, math and science.

HIGHWAY continued from page 1 tive comments from fellow merchants and customers. “I think they see the value in it, but it was a painful process,” she said. The project focused on a mile-long stretch of Highway 101 between Cliff and Dahlia streets. Work included upgrades of storm drains, widening and installation of sidewalks on the west side of the street, narrowing of traffic lanes to slow vehicles, and new landscaping, street furniture such as benches and bike racks, lighting, and 11 art-themed public gathering spots. Parallel parking was replaced with angled parking, adding about 40 additional spaces along the project’s length. The speed limit was also lowered to 35 mph from 45 mph, and it could be lowered further if necessary, said City Manager David Ott. Comments from the public and merchants has been generally positive in recent months, as opposed
to frustration expressed during the most intense construction in the final months of 2012, Ott said. “They are really seeing it now, based on their comments, that businesses will reap the rewards of people wanting to get out and walk and see the beautiful spaces and visit their business,” Ott said. Other measures to reduce traffic speeds include signage for the new speed limit, mid-block pedestrian crossings with flashing lights, and a shared southbound lane, delineated with pavement markings, for bicycles and vehicles, Ott said. A grand opening and ribbon cutting is being planned for Sept. 22 to coincide with the annual Arts Alive event, officials said. Most of the work, including decorative touches, is expected to be completed by then. During construction, the city has tried to help merchants by waiving business license fees and relaxing signage rules, allowing

merchants to put up extra signage to increase their visibility, Ott said. “We did everything possible to try to help them out during these times, and have the least impact possible. But it was definitely an inconvenience to many business owners,” Ott said. Moore, owner of Solana Succulents, said his landlord gave him a break on the rent. Among the benefits of the project, said Moore, is that additional parking spaces will be available in front of his business. A downside, he said, is the type of trees selected for the roadway median, which he said may block views of businesses on the west side of Coast Highway from the northbound traffic lanes. However, Ott said the trees were selected so their foliage would grow upward, and not obstruct the views of motorists. Another concern, according to Kelly, of Fairbanks Interiors, is skateboarders who are drawn by

Commission approval for the 2014 dates by the end of this year, when the decision would have to be made. This year’s summer racing season at Del Mar will run from July 17 through Sept. 4. The proposed schedule for next year is July 16 - Sept. 3, and Nov. 5 Dec. 7. The proposed 2015 schedule is July 15 - Sept. 7, and Oct. 28 - Dec. 6. Harper said the fall race meet would bring in an estimated $1 million in additional revenue to the 22nd DAA, mostly from food and beverage sales. Fairgrounds general manager Tim Fennell said he and the Thoroughbred Club have been talking about expanding the track’s racing season for several years. He said some of the fairground’s fall and winter events, such as the popular Holiday of Lights attraction, might need to be moved or even cancelled. But he said the 22nd DAA should “leverage this opportunity to all of our advantage.” “There’s going to be some impacts but I think we can work through those,” Fennell said. The news about fall racing and the Breeder’s Cup comes as the 22nd DAA and the county of San Diego are negotiating to form a joint powers authority that would assume day-to-day control of the fairgrounds’ operations. Board president Adam Day announced Tuesday that a special meeting will be held on June 17 to discuss the proposed partnership between the county
and the 22nd DAA. The city of Del Mar, which over the years has tangled both verbally and legally with the 22nd DAA over the impacts of the fairground on city residents, welcomed the prospect of the Breeder’s Cup coming to the racetrack. At its meeting on Monday, June 3, the council approved a resolution supporting the racetrack’s bid to host the event. “Whereas, the Del Mar Race Track is the Crown Jewel of Horse Racing on the West Coast; and Whereas, no other Horse Racing venue can provide the beautiful, blue Pacific Ocean as its backdrop and the Southern California feeling of the sun, sand and surf as Del Mar can, being located on the beach… Now, therefore, be it resolved, that the City Council of Del Mar, California is cordially inviting the Breeders’ Cup to Del Mar,” read the resolution authored by City Manager Scott Huth. Harper said it’s difficult to predict if the Del Mar racetrack’s bid to host the Breeder’s Cup will succeed, but he’s taking no chances – he’ll bring video testimonials from former San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders and Drew Brees, quarterback of the New Orleans Saints and an ex-San Diego Charger. Del Mar has a lot going for it, said Harper, including great weather, plenty of top hotels and restaurants and a spectacular setting. “I think we’re looking very attractive to the Breeder’s Cup,” he said.

French scholar headlines Binder Lit Lectures at UCSD BY STEVEN MIHAILOVICH If you believe the current assault on the artist’s originality through rapid technological advances in media and the resulting piracy is unprecedented, then you’re a prime candidate for Santayana’s axiom “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” UC San Diego’s annual James K. Binder Lectureship in Literature recently featured Roger Chartier (French scholar, author and cultural historian of books, writing, reading and education), whose lecture provided a glimpse of the modern dilemma by taking a long look back at the antecedent set by European authors and their manuscripts in the mid-18th century. Titled “From the Writer’s Hand to the Printer’s Mind: Who is the Author in Early Modern Europe?” Chartier’s presentation focused on the history of literary manuscripts autographed by their authors to illustrate the evolution of writers wrestling ownership from publishers and other entities, who had previously held sway and manipulated the author’s output for centuries. The process led to the development of the modern copyright as well as the con-
Roger Chartier temporary concept of the writer as an expressive artist. “In order to consider text as individual property, they are to be divorced conceptually from any particular material embodiment and must be located in the author’s mind or hand,” Chartier said. “Indeed, the nearest that man could come to a material form of an immaterial world was addressed by the author’s hand. “The autographed manuscript thus became the outward and visible sign of the inward and invisible genius of the writer. It was not the case in the 16th and 17th century, when the signature could be delegated.” By addressing the dual nature of the book as a physical object and as a manifestation of the writer’s mind, Chartier noted the displacement of the author’s ownership of the text in today’s brisk dissemination and permutations of his or her writings through technology, such as the Internet, potentially regressing the culture to a time when the original writer was obscure. “What is missing (today) is the foundation of books, that is to say a text sufficiently stable to be recognized as an object of property and as a creation of an individual,” Chartier said. “The computer is not the book. So another perspective [emerging], sometimes by the reader, mainly by the publisher, also by the author … is to accept their own disappearance in a sense. There is a resistance. There are cases in front of courts
to keep the categories of the past.” Chartier gave his talk before an audience of about 60 people at the Atkinson Pavilion at UCSD’s Faculty Lounge. His appearance marked the return (after a two-year lull) of the Binder Lectures, inaugurated in 2005 to foster links between UCSD and universities specifically in France, Germany, Italy and Spain. Lectures are open to the public. According to Stephanie Zed, chairperson of UCSD’s Literature Department, the hiatus was the result of conflicting schedules and difficulties in obtaining visas. Zed added that the Binder Lectureship is critical to promoting the university as a multidisciplinary institution. “The fact is that this is a science school,” Zed said. “Although arts and humanities are very excellent, we’re not making discoveries.” The short list for next year’s guest lecturer includes Dario Fo, the Nobel Prizewinning Italian playwright, and Luciano Canfora, distinguished Italian historian. Chartier said his trip was especially significant because two dearly departed friends and colleagues, Louis Marin and Michel de Certeau, taught at UCSD during the 1970s and 1980s.

Del Mar Heights first graders support endangered koalas through Service-Learning Project On Friday, May 24, at the grand opening of the San Diego Zoo’s new Australian Outback exhibit, four Del Mar Heights first-grade classes presented over $500 of donations towards sustaining the endangered koalas who call the exhibit home. Students earned money in a variety of ways. Some set up lemonade stands while others performed jobs around their homes. After the money was collected it was sorted and counted, offering authentic experience using math skills. Students spent time learning about koalas, drafting essays and creating artwork while gaining an understanding of the adorable Australian marsupials. Their work culminated with a special assembly at the zoo where students were hosted by San Diego Zoological Society staff who offered their appreciation and presented each class with a plush koala to be their classroom mascot. “The students are very proud that their efforts have had a positive affect on the world around them,” said

first-grade teacher Teresa Solis. “Their enthusiasm has been phenomenal and the learning that goes on has been very rich.” The first-grade koala sponsorship project is one of many service-learning activities to occur each year at Del Mar Heights School. Students at all grade levels are frequently engaged in service-learning projects to their benefit and the benefit of the world around them. Providing meaningful and tangible learning experiences through service creates powerful thinkers and responsible citizens.

Local veterans continue to help homeless veterans but need donations Since 2010, the San Diego Veterans For Peace, the local chapter of the national 501-C-3 veterans educational organization, have been raising money and buying sleeping bags sets for homeless veterans and others on the streets in downtown San Diego. As the homeless population downtown continues to grow (now at least 1,000 people each night), chapter veterans of all five services head downtown late at night with sleeping bags sets (a sleeping bag, a nylon stuff sack, and a poncho) and find those most in need who have no sleeping gear. Each $33 donated buys one set, in bulk and below wholesale cost from the Coleman Company. To date, 1,700 sets have been purchased and individually given out late at night by veterans, who verify the specific need of each person,

Longtime Reuters photographer has enjoyed a front seat to history BY ROB LEDONNE Itâ€™s not hyperbole to say that Mike Blake has photographed virtually every event of cultural significance for the past 25 years. His lens has captured events as varied as the Super Bowl, Olympics, Oscars, Grammys, NBA Playoffs, and the list goes on and on, all for the Reuters News Agency, a global news source that countless websites, newspapers, and TV stations rely on for images and information. â€œThereâ€™s something about the human condition and the still picture,â€? he explained from his North County home. â€œYou really donâ€™t see an event until you look at a picture of it.â€? Reuters, which was first started in the 1800s by Paul Julies Reuter who used carrier pigeons to let people know when ships would come in, is now, as Blake explains it, a â€œglobal news service, so we always look at stories from a world perspective.â€? That means as a Senior Photographer for Reuters Blake dashes up and down the West Coast covering whatever the rest of the world would be interested in. Originally, however, Blake was taking pictures of him and his friends skateboarding as a kid growing up in Toronto, Canada: â€œThatâ€™s how I got into photography. After taking some classes in high school, I went to art school but dropped out because I didnâ€™t want to learn the whole

foundation of painting and drawing â€” all I wanted to do was take pictures.â€? Blake soon found himself at Reuters where he started in the late 1980s, and after moving from Toronto to Vancouver, Blake wound up in Southern California thanks to his

wife who works in the music industry. â€œCalifornia is very interesting,â€? said Blake. â€œItâ€™s a driver of so many cultures; lots of things start in this state. Itâ€™s fascinating to watch the culture here.â€? Over the years, Blakeâ€™s pictures of life in Southern California and around the country â€”from Tiger Woods winning the Masters, Lady Gagaâ€™s meat dress, and this past yearâ€™s Grammys and Oscars â€” have wound up everywhere from the front pages of websites, magazines, books, and on television. â€œAs any photographer will tell you, sometimes things go your way and sometimes they donâ€™t,â€? Blake explains, and one particular night when everything went his way occurred
in 1998 during the NBA playoffs in Salt Lake City. â€œMichael Jordan (as a member of the Chicago Bulls) stole the ball with 9 seconds left to win the game, and he happened to be right in front of me, directly lined up with the basket so I got some great shots there. After the game, I was there when they were giving speeches, and then followed him to the locker room when they were spraying champagne everywhere, so I thought I had some amazing pictures and went to run back to send everything in. As I was walking down an arena hallway to leave, I see him and his mother hugging and took more shots. Everything just clicked.â€? Aside from cultural and sporting events, Blake sometimes goes on dangerous assignments as well. This past April, he went on a ridealong with authorities on the United States/Mexican border, which Blake says was eye opening. â€œI made a few phone calls because itâ€™s such an interesting story. You have people who are trying to hop the border in search of a better life, and you have agents who are risking their lives to patrol it. It was a tricky story.â€? In addition, since Blake lives in North County, heâ€™s become accustomed to taking photos all over the area that also run globally. Recently, a story on McDonaldâ€™s needed a companion picture, so Blake went to the restaurantâ€™s location in the Del Mar Highlands to snap a See REUTERS, Page 14

Del Mar residents among Girl Scouts’ ‘10 Cool Women of 2013’ Del Mar residents Arlene Harris and Zandra Rhodes were honored at the San Diego’s “10 Cool Women of 2013” luncheon, held by Girl Scouts San Diego on April 19. This is the 13th year the nonprofit has recognized women whose personal and professional achievements, leadership and service to the community make them consummate role models for girls. “Like Girl Scouts, our 2013 Cool Women make the world a better place,” said Jo Dee C. Jacob, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts San Diego. “We’re proud to honor these 10 exceptional women.” The only woman in the Wireless Hall of Fame and a former Girl Scout, Harris invented the Jitterbug phone for seniors (which the New York Times listed as one of its “10 Brilliant Ideas of 2006”), the first airline ticketing database, and the first prepaid phone and wireless activation systems. Her innovations have helped make cellular service available to people of all levels of income and technical proficiency. Rhodes was once a Girl Guide in England. In the 1970s, she helped put London on the fashion forefront with her dramatic use of bold prints, feminine patterns and theatrical color, not to mention her revolutionary textile patterns. She has designed furnishings, fabrics, wallpaper, shoes, cosmetics, clothes, and opera costumes and sets (including those seen in this April’s production of Aida at the San Diego Opera). Each honoree was introduced by a Cool Woman from a prior year. Del Mar residents Ronne Froman and Linda Katz, who received the recognition in 2003 and 2002, respectively, presented Joye Blount and Pauline Foster. Froman attributed Blount’s fundraising expertise to the Girl Scout virtue of using resources wisely. Blount, currently a Wealth Management advisor with the Private Client Reserve at U.S. Bank, raised one million dollars for the San Diego Zoo in 2010 and for the March of Dimes campaign in 2006. She is on the advisory boards for several local organizations, is a graduate of the FBI Citizen’s Academy, and served as a United Nations official observer for two Mexican presidential elections, According to Katz, Foster considers education “the greatest gift you can give someone.” She is a council member for UCSD’s Rady School of Management and serves on the board of the Stanley Foster Construction
Martin Cooper and Arlene Harris
Zandra Rhodes and Jeanne Jones Academy. A San Diego native, she has volunteered her time for many organizations, including the Governor’s Committee to Promote Trade Between California and Israel, United Way of San Diego, the San Diego Cancer Crusade and a Beth Israel interracial summer camp. The other 10 Cool Women of 2013 are Voices for Children founder Kathryn Ashworth, children’s and labor activist Dolores Huerta, Pacific Arts Movement founder Lee Ann Kim, immigration reform advocate Rosibel Mancillas-Lopez, San Diego Unified School District Superintendant Designate Cindy Marten, and attorney Ellen Whelan. Girl Scouts San Diego recognized Scripps National Spelling Bee 2012 champion Snigdha Nandipati as its first-ever “Cool Girl.” The previously recognized Cool Women who introduced this year’s honorees included Barbara Bry, Irma Castro, Jeanne Jones, Karen Keltner, Gail Levin, Susan Mallory and Rana Sampson. In addition to an engraved crystal vase from Girl Scouts San Diego, honorees received an engraved Nambé picture frame, courtesy of Bloomingdale’s. Madeleine Pickens, a 2010 Cool Woman, and the Del Mar Country Club hosted the luncheon and awards program. Event proceeds of $27,000 will help keep Girl Scouting available and affordable for 31,000 local girls. To see photos of the event, visit www.sdgirlscouts.org/cool-women.

CV golf phenom headed to Callaway Junior World Championships BY ROB LEDONNE “As soon as I started to walk, I was playing golf,” said Carmel Valley Middle School student Jacob Montes. Jacob, a 13 year-old golf phenomenon who is going to the Callaway Junior World Golf Championships this July, has been working literally his entire life to not only become a good golfer, but one of the best. “I remember the first time I won a tournament,” he said. “I was 4.” Montes has his father to thank for his avid interest in golf, Frank Montes of La Jolla’s Montes Financial. Frank himself started golfing at a late age and never quite got the hang of it. “I had always said that if I ever had a kid, I’d teach him early,” he remembers, and true to his word a few short years after Jacob was born, Frank had him out on the greens. “I figured it was something we could do together, and something that would enhance his life for years to come. I never imagined he’d take it to this whole other level.” Said Jacob of his humble beginnings: “At the time, it was just a fun thing. After I started to get better at it and began competing, it turned into something I wanted to do all the time.” Between the ages of 4 and 7, Jacob won a whopping 16 tournaments, a feat he chalks up to “playing every single day. I’d go in my backyard and my dad would line up balls and I’d hit them over a fence.” However, as Jacob got older his attention turned to other sports as well, including lacrosse and football, but in his eyes golf is “always the priority,” he notes. “It’s funny because everyone knows me in school as the kid who plays football. I never actually started telling people I played golf until this year, and people react by being a little surprised.” These days Jacob juggles his time between all three sports, and is currently practicing at least four days a week for the Callaway Junior Worlds, for which he qualified by winning a variety of junior golf tournaments in North County. “For the San Diego Junior Golf Tournament, there are four of them and they take the top four point winners,” Jacob explains. “While competing I was placing high and kind

of knew based on the points that I was going to be moving on,” and from there Jacob beat out around 65 other kids to advance. Jacob, whose golf heroes are Rickie Fowler and Tiger Woods, aspires to one day playing Division 1 golf in college and, in his wildest dreams, of perhaps even joining the PGA Tour, to which he already has a connection.
“I’ve gotten to know Charley Hoffman’s caddy very well,” said Jacob of the famed professional golfer. “He’s taken me under his wing, gives me tips and teaches me about course management.” Throughout all of this, Frank couldn’t be happier: “I’m very, very proud,” he beams. “He works very hard and is very open to all types of input.

Carmel Valley youth wins Padres’ Pitch, Hit & Run Competition Marissa Gaut, a second grader at Ocean Air Elementary School, won first place for the girls 7/8 age group in the MLB Pitch, Hit & Run competition June 1 at Petco Park. Marissa advanced to this competition by achieving the highest overall score at both the local Del Mar and Sectional Pitch, Hit & Run competitions. Her sectional score was then compared to the other sectional winners across the Padres’ market, which encompasses portions of Southern California and Nevada. The top three sectional scorers across the Padres market were then invited to compete at Petco Park. Each level of competition included hitting a ball off a tee for distance and accuracy, accuracy in throwing at strike zone targets, and a timed run from 2nd to home base.

TPHS tennis player Taylor Fritz wins San Diego Section Division I championship •TPH S golf team, Cathedral, Tphs runners also shine BY GIDEON RUBIN Torrey Pines freshman tennis sensation Taylor Fritz capped off his season in grand fashion, winning the San Diego Section Division I championship. Fritz defeated Rancho Bernardo senior William Chui 6-2, 6-3 in the finals on June 3 at Barnes Tennis Center. Fritz was named the section’s “Player of the Year.” “It’s very impressive,” Torrey Pines coach Chris Numbers said. “Given that he’s a freshman it’s very special.” Fritz improved his overall record for the season to 29-2. Fritz advanced to the finals as the No. 1 seed. He defeated No. 8 Greg Lyon of Coronado High 6-4 in a quarterfinal match on May 30 and went on to beat La Jolla’s Jake Roberts, a No. 4 seed, 7-5, 6-3 in a semifinal match later in the day. Chui was the No. 2 seed. Fritz was battling cold
on was impressive too. Fritz seemed to elevate his game in the postseason. “I think his focus was a little bit more intense,” Numbers said. “I think he was a little bit more focused in the postseason.” Fritz is no stranger to elite competition. The powerful 6-foot-3 hitter who just turned 15 earlier this year, won the U.S.T.A. Boys Under-14 national championship last summer. He played in the finals of the prestigious Ojai tournament earlier this season. “He was good before he came in and I think he matured this season,” Numbers said. “Tennis is such an individual sport, but when you’re playing on a team I think you just mature naturally. You can’t do it all yourself, you’ve got to think about your team as well and he was a great teammate.”
Taylor Fritz symptoms, but that didn’t seem to bother him, Numbers said. “He’s very mentally tough and I think he had the upper hand mentally and physically over his opponent,” Numbers said. “He showed that he’s head and shoulders the best player in the section.” Numbers said Fritz’s progression this season from highly-talented incoming freshman with no varsity experience to section champi-
Boys golf: Torrey Pines advanced to the state championships for a fourth straight year after placing second in the Southern California Regional Championships on May
30. The Falcons were scheduled to travel to Carmel for the June 5 state finals at Quail Lodge Golf Club in Carmel. Torrey Pines won the title in 2011 and finished second last season. The Falcons shot a combined 368 on an 18-hole par-72 course at Brookside Golf Course in the regional match, finishing five strokes behind champion Sunny Hills of Fullerton. Aaron Strockis shot a 70 to lead the Falcons and Tailin Song and Jonah Holty each contributed 72 scores. Danny Ochoa shot 76, and Jaime Cheatam and Ott Vanhatalo added 78 and 79 scores, respectively. Track and Field: Cathedral Catholic girls’ standout Hannah Labrie-Smith recorded one of the best times in San Diego Section history at the state finals in Clovis. Labrie-Smith clocked a 42.27-second time in a prelim heat of the 300-meter hurdles at Buchanan High on May 31. She finished third in
the finals the next day, posting a 42.58. Labrie-Smith’s performance in the prelims was within a hundredth of a second of the 42.26 Olympic
gold medalist Gail Devers clocked in 1983. Torrey Pines’ Tal Braude clocked a 9:06.51 to place fifth in the 3,200.

Socrates? And One Paseo? In response to a recent Letter to the Editor, here are some questions I’d like to humbly submit for consideration... attempting the Socratic method: •Of all the money spent to support the “No on One Paseo” efforts, how much of it was funded by the Del Mar Highlands mall across the street? •If Kilroy had signed an exclusive union labor agreement for the construction of the project, would Mayor Filner’s opinion on the project have been different? •With San Diego projected to grow, is it better to increase density in urban areas, or is it better to urbanize more open land or farmland in east county? •Can we continue to support our growing biotech and technology communities without increasing density? •Can the Torrey Pines Community Planning Board help me find a parking spot at Ralphs? •Is it distasteful and/or disrespectful to our veterans to put Iraq and One Paseo in the same article? •What do Peggy Noonan, the European and Israeli Intelligence Services or the Wall Street Journal have to do with helping me buy affordable movie tickets? • Will my kids have better career opportunities in a more business-friendly city? •If we as a community are committed to no growth policies when it comes to land use, should I move my family out now before we slide down the rankings? •A licensed Professional Traffic Engineer registered in the State of California performs his or her study and due diligence, and works with a tool that is recognized and understood; yet because it’s old, it’s considered “garbage”? • A carpenter’s hammer gets old — is she now “garbage” too? •What happens when system 12 is released? Should we stop moving forward and wait for that? •Will the work performed with system 11 then be “GIGO”? • Is it better to sit down at the table and come to an agreement, or is it better stop progress? • Agree to disagree? Verify? Stall? Why not work to an agreement, write the check and move forward? Brooks Roffey Carmel Valley

I am retired – Does One Paseo support transit solutions?
JON CLARK Photographer DON PARKS Chief Revenue Officer/General Manager
One Del Mar Times reader believed that developments, like One Paseo, were forward looking and would give all of us a chance to get future mass transit solutions. Kilroy will provide two bus stops for Route 935 scheduled to start in the year 2035. As the North County Coastal representative to the SANDAG’s 2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), I often asked why the transit map for Carmel Valley appeared to be a big void. The answer was that the North Coastal area was not projected to have the intensity of housing development to support and justify the cost of modern transit infrastructure. The SANDAG 2050 RPT calls for dense development to support the projected 935,000 new residences in the county by 2050. To achieve this Residential- Very High density would require about 75-plus dwelling units (DW) per acre. By comparison, Torrey Pines averages between five to six DW’s per acre. The only way to achieve high to very high housing density is to build multi-story apartment/condo towers and stop suburban sprawl. The Westfield Mall management company has requested a million-square-foot expansion of UTC and in return would provide some funding support for the mid-coast trolley line reaching north to the Town Center. The trolley line would be supported by the Metro Transit System’s La Jolla Super Loop route. How much better a transit solution than two bus stops! Forward-looking West Coast cities, such as Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington, have provided their residents with modern multi-modal transit systems. These cities realized that to change commuters’ habits of driving alone to work, a lifestyle change was needed. What better way to entice this change than through financial disincentives to driving alone. Highway expansion was curtailed and only normal highway repair is viewed as essential. The second pierce of this puzzle is to restrict parking and increase hourly parking rates. Major hotel chains in Seattle encourage visitors to park their vehicles and leave them in the hotel’s garage. The hotels provide free shutter service to central locations and if given 30-minute notice come back to pick you up. Projects like One Paseo are required to provide so many parking spaces per thousand square feet of development. This is not Kilroy’s doing but rather the continuation of the status quo that supports our reliance upon the automobile to get around. Kilroy must pay its Fair Share to reduce the projects traffic impact as mitigation cost to support the expansion of the I-5 North Coast Corridor. Could these mitigation funds be better spent to support the design and prototype development of a Loop Lite shuttle system in the North County? One possible route would start and end at the Solana Beach train station, with stops at the Cedros shopping district, Del Mar Fairgrounds, restaurant row in Del Mar and then turn East to One Paseo. At One Paseo, establish a link to Pacific Highlands Ranch and if possible meet up with Metro Transit System and connect to the La Jolla Super Loop. To complete the Loop Lite, shuttle service would provide a stop at Flower Hill Mall and then back to the Solana Beach railhead. One Paseo might be a walkable development but for most people getting there requires an automobile. This is not forward thinking but rather holding unto the status quo supporting the combustion engine. Dennis Ridz, Chair, Torrey Pines Community Planning Board

Early diagnosis and treatment may reduce MS relapses BY CHARLES SMITH, MD, SCRIPPS HEALTH Multiple sclerosis is a chronic autoimmune disease that disrupts nerve impulses in the central nervous system (brain, optic nerves and spinal cord) by attacking the protective coverings around nerve fibers known as myelin, and often damaging the nerve fibers (axons) themselves. Consequently, it can cause a diverse range of symptoms including numbness, weakness, spasticity, gait disturbances, bladder problems, cognitive and memory problems, speech disorders, vision problems and others. Often referred to simply as MS, multiple sclerosis is believed to affect more than 2.5 million people worldwide, including approximately 400,000 people in the U.S. Another 200 are newly diagnosed in the U.S. every week. It is three times more common in women than men, and is most often diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, although rarely has it been shown to affect infants and elderly people. The cause of MS is unknown, but genetics and environmental factors may influence its onset. Though it is not directly inherited from a parent, the risk of developing MS is greater in people who have a close relative, such as a parent or sibling, with the disease. It is more common among Caucasians than other ethnic groups. Because women are affected more often than men, researchers are studying whether hormones may play a role. Worldwide, MS is more common in areas farther from the equator, which has led researchers to conclude that exposure to sunlight and low vitamin D levels influence the development of MS. Another confirmed environmental factor is smoking. Most researchers believe the disease is triggered by exposure to a virus — Epstein Barr virus is the current leading candidate — but proof is not yet available. MS is often not diagnosed right away because so many of its symptoms may be caused by other conditions. In most cases, a neurologist will diagnose the disease after a thorough physical examination and a brain MRI, which will reveal abnormalities on the brain. Lumbar puncture (spinal tap) is often included in the work up to confirm that the diagnosis is indeed MS. Once treatment is initiated, a brain MRI is usually done annually to ensure treatment is maximally effective. Because MS is most frequently an episodic disease, patients experience relapses and remissions, and symptoms can vary from one episode to the next. Major symptoms may disappear completely between relapses. In severe cases, symptoms such as speech or vision problems or paralysis may become permanent. Treatment focuses on relieving symptoms and reducing the frequency of relapses and preventing disability. Historically, MS patients who receive no treatment have had an average of about one relapse (exacerbation) per year. New treatments discovered over the past two decades have shown significant progress in reducing the relapse rate and disability progression. Moreover, the earlier treatment is started, the more effective it may be. The first drugs approved for MS were immunomodulators. These so-called “platform drugs” for MS were approved in the 1990s and include interferons, such as Betaseron, Avonex and Rebif. Copaxone, another platform treatment, is in a separate class. Immunomodulators stop the body from damaging its own nerve cells; in the initial clinical trials, these drugs reduced the relapse rate by about 30 percent. However, the patients in these trials had been diagnosed five or six years before beginning treatment and already had substantial myelin damage and brain abnormalities. When the researchers began earlier treatment that included patients who had just a single episode and minimal abnormalities on the brain MRI, the relapse rate dropped to about 50 percent with these treatments. Not all MS patients respond to the platform drugs, and some may experience unpleasant side effects such as flu-like symptoms with the interferons. In some cases, these side effects are intolerable, and treatment must be discontinued. A growing list of new approved medications is now available for MS and may have better results, but some of these also have potentially serious side effects that must be carefully considered before beginning treatment. Because early diagnosis and treatment can significantly help reduce the relapse rate and slow the progression of the disease, patients with potential MS symptoms should be examined by a neurologist and have a brain MRI as soon as possible.

Education Matters/Opinion Kindergarten debate reignites old battles BY MARSHA SUTTON The recent debate over fullday kindergarten in Marsha Sutton the Solana Beach School District had the same emotional ferocity I remember from 10 years ago when Del Mar Union School District parents and teachers tackled the issue. I recall one Del Mar parent standing up at a school board meeting to argue in favor of keeping half-day kindergarten, shouting, “It works! It works! It works!” This argument was also used, if more diplomatically, by some Solana Beach parents who asked SBSD trustees why they want to fix something that’s not broken. These “broken-fixed” sound bites, intended to maintain the status quo, trivialize meaningful discussion of innovation in education. This simplistic approach also creates a false dichotomy by presenting the situation as either nonfunctional or perfect. Some things are working, yes, and some things aren’t. But everything, whether broken or not, can be made better. And there are shades of gray. But what’s really wrong with this argument in this particular case is that it misses the point completely. Solana Beach got it; Del Mar never has. Full-day kindergarten provides equity in educational opportunities for all children, regardless of background and family income. It’s above all else a social justice issue. Solana Beach trustees voted to make the last of all the district’s kindergarten programs full day because of the need for all children, no matter cultural or socio-economic status, to have equal access to the highest quality education possible. Equity was the over-riding factor. In past board-level discussions in Del Mar about full-day K (which was rejected), the issue of equity barely came up. Alison Wishard Guerra, a researcher and assistant professor in the Education Studies department at the University of California San Diego, has studied whether full-day kindergarten is in the best interests of children.
She said half-day kindergarten programs should not be available only to parents with the means and inclination to pick their kids up midday, or for parents who can “negotiate additional child care arrangements and augment their children’s academic learning through out-of-school enrichment activities and structured learning activities in the home.” As the mother of an incoming Solana Beach kindergartner, her findings were written for SBSD, but her points apply equally to Del Mar and other communities. Does every Del Mar family have the means to provide learning and social opportunities for their kindergarten children each afternoon after early dismissal? Does every Del Mar student have enriching vacations and frequent outings to museums and concerts? Does every Del Mar student speak fluent English? Does every Del Mar student attend pre-school before coming to kindergarten? If not (and the answer is obviously not), then Del Mar needs to address the inequity inherent in its kindergarten half-day program, a schedule that only benefits families able to afford the time and money to enrich their children’s afternoons with social and intellectual stimuli. One might argue that Solana Beach has more lowincome and English learner students than Del Mar. But if Del Mar has even just one, isn’t that reason enough? One might also argue that every kindergartner in Del Mar is dismissed at the same time so no one child is treated better than another. But this is disingenuous, because not every child gets the same educational advantages in the afternoons that other children get. How is that equal? Resistance to change can be a powerful force I’ve fought this battle twice before in the Del Mar district and lost both times, against a vocal minority of parents and clear majority of teachers who like things just fine the way they are. But I’m giving it another shot because the social justice argument that persuaded courageous SBSD trustees to move forward and approve full-day kindergarten is just too compelling
to ignore. Of note is the fact that many parents who favored full-day kindergarten in Solana Beach said they did not speak out because they felt intimidated by parents who aligned with teachers to support the status quo. No parent wants to disagree publicly with teachers. This is particularly noteworthy for Del Mar because, according to an article in the May 3, 2002 issue of this newspaper (yes, 11 years ago, the last time this topic came before the school board), “not a single kindergarten teacher” favored a later dismissal time for kindergartners “while 78 percent of parents who were surveyed” did. The district, which previously dismissed kindergarten students at 11:30, tried a pilot program for one year, in 2001-2002, with a 1:30 dismissal time. The Carmel Valley News story said that the superintendent at the time, Tom Bishop, found it “interesting” that “teachers felt students didn’t perform well in the afternoon while most parents say their kids are thriving with the longer day.” As a result of undue pressure, a weak Del Mar school board caved and voted to kill the longer kindergarten day after only one year of the pilot program. Ignored was the research and efforts by a district task force that met for almost a year and provided clear evidence that kindergarten students of every socio-economic background are ready for a longer day and, more importantly, can all reap great benefits from extended hours in school. Del Mar currently has a 12:40 dismissal time, with small-group instruction for students who stay at school one day a week for an extra hour. One has to wonder what the kids do every afternoon whose parents aren’t available to provide them with enriching social, physical and intellectual experiences. Wishard Guerra contends that a longer kindergarten day provides more opportunities for children to hear complex language, to read and be read to, and to play and pretend with peers which is a language-oriented activity. “Vocabulary is the number one predictor of later academic and life out-
comes,” she said in an email. Her claims, all backed by cited studies and solid research, suggest that full-day kindergarten, especially for disadvantaged children, can make a world of difference in future academic success. “Several studies document academic benefits for all children who attend fullday kindergarten over partday kindergarten, with marked academic gains in English learners, specifically in literacy development,” she wrote in her study. Provide choice That said, despite the evidence that full-day kindergarten offers vast benefits, some reasons to retain early dismissal times have merit. What makes this such a difficult decision is the valid argument that some young children need down-time – to play, relax, refresh and be with other kids socially and enjoy outings with stay-athome parents. For those who can provide these enriching afternoons, a shorter day is beneficial. Solana Beach now offers only a full day of kindergarten, while Del Mar only offers a half day. Why not provide parents a choice in both districts? For Solana Beach’s Global Education kindergarten program, the modified day and full day could both be offered permanently. Let parents choose which is appropriate for their child. And in Del Mar, the same. Why not create choices for parents and let parents pick whether half-day or full-day is best for their kindergartners? Especially for under-enrolled schools or schools that share common attendance boundaries, this model is ideal. For example, Del Mar Hills School and Del Mar Heights School, both located west of I-5, share a common attendance area. Hills parents have frequently complained about under-enrollment for incoming kindergarten students. If the Hills offered fullday kindergarten and the Heights offered only halfday, I’d bet a nickel the Hills would be overrun with demand. Ashley Falls School is also under-enrolled. How about letting that school provide full-day kindergarten and parents can choose if that’s where they want to send their children? For schools that share attendance areas, the configuration is perfect for choice. The ideological question goes further. Why
should all schools be exactly alike? Can’t one school offer a distinct program without every school having to offer it also? Choice allows parents to find the best fit for their kids and provides school districts with valuable information about what works and which programs need adjustments. Educational and instructional needs change over time – or at least they should. Public education cannot remain stagnant. We need flexible visionaries as education leaders who believe that even the best of schools can be improved. We need leaders who understand that every student is different an choice offers a way to tailor the needs of each child to best match what each learning environment can offer. We also need leaders who recognize that equity in education can never be compromised. Schools are not for teachers, and they aren’t for parents. They are for the children. Sometimes that gets forgotten. — Marsha Sutton can be reached at SuttComm@san.rr.com.

Record-breaking honorees for the Del Mar Little League Academic All American Program BY GLORIA LIMAS AN More than 70 Del Mar Little League players were honored as members of the Academic All American Program this year. The league recognizes athletes who excel both on the baseball field and the classroom. It is open to players in fourth through ninth grades playing in divisions A, AA, AAA, Majors and Juniors. Students must have straight “A’s” in all classes to be eligible. Former DMLL President and current Treasurer Larry Jackel created the program along with Doug Irwin four years ago. It has grown steadily over the years with only 45 players being honored the first year. Jackel says, “The program is an incentive for our athletes to do well in school, then in college and, ultimately, in life whether they go on to play professional ball or not.” More information on the Del Mar Little League, National and American divisions, can be found at http://www.dmll.org/ This year’s honorees follow by league and division: American League: Brandon Angel, Rays Majors Miguel Arguelles, Rebels Juniors Derek Bragado, Majors Rays

Men on mission to rescue Ethiopian children Local resident and scholarship student cofounded OMO Child nonprofit
Bill and Dawn Davidson
BY JOE TASH Over the past four or five years, Lale Labuko saved more than three dozen Ethiopian children from certain death at the hands of their own tribes, who considered them cursed. Now, with the help of Rancho Santa Fe resident John Rowe, Labuko wants to assure the futures of those 37 rescued children. The vehicle for the pair’s efforts is Omo Child, a nonprofit organization co-founded by the two men who come from very different backgrounds on the opposite sides of the globe. Rowe, 61, a Los Angeles native, spent 25 years developing and marketing video games before retiring from business and turning to his lifelong passion, photography. It was during a photographic trip to Africa in 2004 that he met Labuko, who served as his guide and translator. Labuko, 30, has devoted himself to rescuing “mingi” children from the poverty-stricken region where he was born and raised in southwest Ethiopia. Along with his work with Omo Child, Labuko is studying economics on a scholarship at Hampshire College in Massachusetts. Recently, Labuko was recognized for his humanitarian work by National Geographic magazine as one of 17 “Emerging Explorers” for 2013, joining a distinguished class of young scientists, entrepreneurs and artists. In an interview in the photography studio of Rowe’s home, the two said they are dedicated to providing for the needs of the 37 children, from food and shelter to education and health care. To do so, they will continue to seek support through their website, OmoChild.org. Labuko has rented two homes in a village called Jinka, in the region where his own home village, Dus, is located. The children are cared for by nannies who are hired by Omo Child. All of the children are under 12; many are still in diapers. While Labuko is studying in the U.S., his wife, Gido, manages the program in Ethiopia and raises the couple’s two young daughters. His dream, Labuko said, is to educate the mingi children so they can become productive members of Ethiopian society, and one day help other unfortunates. The term mingi refers to children
Dawn and Bill Davidson co-chair large Pacific Coast Builders Conference in San Diego BY KATHY DAY A year’s worth of planning came together this week for Dawn and Bill Davidson, whose design and homebuilding companies share offices in Del Mar. More than 10,000 building industry representatives landed in town for the annual Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC), held June 5-6, which the couple co-chaired. Held at the San Diego Convention for the first time this year, the two-date event formally kicked off even earlier, on Tuesday morning with several forums. But for early arrivals, there was also a train trip up the coast Monday to San Juan Capistrano on the horizon. Since its inception in 1959 as a small educational conference, PCBC had been based in San Francisco, but the sponsoring California Building Industry Association (BIA) board decided last year to start alternating locations — meaning it will return to San Diego in the future. Bill Davidson, who started Davidson Communities in 1978, and his wife Dawn, who opened Design Line Interiors in 1985, know the conference well. The Davidsons have been honored many times by their peers. Bill was named the local BIA’s Industry Professional of the Year and is a member of Builder Magazine’s Hall of Fame; his homes have won many a Gold Nugget. Dawn was saluted as the local Building Professional and Design Professional of the Year and is a member of the California Homebuilding Foundation’s Hall of Fame. Bill attended his first PCBC in 1973 and has been to every one since. “As a builder, it’s the only place to go to see the future and, boy, has the industry changed,” Bill said. While they used to go to see the latest in home designs and products, today it is a place to meet bankers and investors, who initially didn’t attend – and stayed away during the recession. Dawn first attended the event in the mid-1980s after starting her firm. “I wanted to see the products and get clients,” she said. “It’s great for networking and lots of fun … It really strengthens relationships and gives you an opportunity to learn a lot.” It’s an opportunity to connect with clients from all over the 14 Western states, Canada and Mexico, who are all there “relaxed and wanting to learn,” she added.

Lale Labuko and John Rowe PHOTO/JOE TASH who are marked as cursed by their tribes. According to Rowe and Labuko, the secretive, taboo practice extends back generations among tribes of Ethiopia’s Omo River valley. Among those labeled as cursed are children born out of wedlock; twins; and those whose top teeth grow in before their lower teeth. Tribal elders fear the mingi children can bring famine, drought and disease. To get rid of the curse, the mingi children are killed, either by drowning in the river, or being left to die in the bush. Last year, Labuko achieved a major milestone when he convinced his own tribe, the Kara, to abandon the practice. He has now turned his attention to another tribe, called the Hamer, which still conducts the killings. “If the Hamer people see the Kara ended mingi and nothing happened,” said Labuko, they may be more willing to consider changing their ways. On the day the Kara stopped the practice, he said, it rained, an event witnessed by tribal kings and elders. “That’s the symbol of blessing,” he said. Labuko first became aware of the practice when he was 15, and witnessed a small child being taken from its mother by village elders. He pressed his parents to explain what had happened, and they told him about mingi. He later learned that two of his sisters had been declared mingi and killed. Along with trying to end the prac-
tice of mingi, Labuko has also been systematically rescuing children labeled with the curse, talking tribal elders into letting him take them to the home he established in Jinka. With 37 children under the program’s wing, Labuko said he feels a duty to provide for their future. “If we don’t care for them, the tribes will think they’re still mingi. I want them to see they’re blessed, not cursed,” he said. Rowe is working on a documentary to further expose the mingi practice and hasten its end. He has interviewed dozens of people in Ethiopia, including the parents of mingi children, government officials and tribal elders. One focus is to learn more about the origin of the practice. “The truth is they don’t really know. It’s been going on for generations,” Rowe said. Before becoming involved in the Omo Child cause, said Rowe, his objective was to document tribal life in remote regions of Africa before it vanished through the encroachment of modern life. “I didn’t expect to be involved in anything like this,” he said. “The last thing I wanted was to start a nonprofit.” But he’s committed now to helping Labuko provide for the mingi children. “I hope someone will read this and it will touch their heart and they will want to help these kids,” he said.

Producer of iconic Fleetwood Mac album shares memories of an unforgettable experience
La Jolla Cultural Partners
BY PAT SHERMAN Ken Caillat says he’s thankful for the year he spent producing Fleetwood Mac’s Grammy Award-winning pop rock masterpiece, “Rumours.” However, more than 35 years later he still finds it hard to sit back and enjoy hits such as “Dreams” or “Don’t Stop” without recalling the well-documented drama, tension and drug use the band was caught up in while recording the album in 1976. “There was Champagne thrown in people’s faces, yelling, screaming and storming out of the room — and a lot of tears,” recalled Caillat, who has also produced albums for Harry Chapin, Michael Jackson, the Beach Boys and, more recently, his daughter, Grammy Award-winning pop star Colbie Caillat. “There was a point where we wondered, are we actually going to be able to finish the record? Are people going to be able to hold it together? Are they going to want to hold it together? “I personally had thousands of hours invested in the project and we (Caillat and co-producer Richard Dashut) were concerned that all this great work we’d done might just disappear.” Caillat will be at Warwick’s bookstore on June 6 at 7:30 p.m. to read from his new book, “Making Rumours: The Inside Story of the Classic Fleetwood Mac Album.” Released Feb. 4, 1977 (less than a month after it was finished), “Rumours” would go on to sell 44 million copies and include the chart-topping hits, “You Make Loving Fun,” “Go Your Own Way” and “The Chain.” The lyrics, written almost entirely on the spot during sessions, reflected the failing personal relationships between band members, most notably the breakup of guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and vocalist Stevie Nicks, and of vocalistkeyboardist Christine McVie and her bassist-husband John McVie. “Everybody wanted to break up with their significant other, for one reason or another, and it all kind of came out in a therapy session with me in the room,” Caillat said. However, amidst the acrimony and mayhem, there was plenty of magic, Caillat said, including Nicks’ haunting howl at the end of the song “Gold Dust Woman,” recorded while Nicks was twirling around the studio with her head-
Producer Ken Caillat phones on. “We sat there for two or three hours (waiting) for her to get in the mood, the spirit,” Caillat recalled. “I believe we turned the lights down and lit candles around the studio. She had a little bit of pot, a little bit of Courvoisier — and I’m sure a little coke, too.” Of the band members, Caillat said Buckingham lit up the most. “As I wrote in the book, Lindsey was a very nervous guy. … He’d continuously, nonstop be rolling a joint … maybe only take one puff and put it down and then five minutes later light it up again. Most of the rest would only do it every two hours or something — just a little bit. … They were always looking for the right headspace to be creative and
spontaneous.” Though the sessions, largely recorded at Record Plant Studios in Sausalito, Calif., were constantly on the verge of derailing, during the midst of a particularly heavy “crying session,” the band’s manager phoned to offer some persuasion. Fleetwood Mac’s previous, self-titled album (“Rhiannon,” “Over My Head,” “Landslide”) was making its way up the charts, and their manager promised a big payoff if the band could keep it together to finish “Rumours.” “He said, ‘If you’re able to duplicate the success of this record, you’ll probably
be guaranteed superstars and be rich for life. … They looked at each other and said, ‘Holy crap … I get it.’ They all kind of said, basically, let’s put all our suffering and differences aside and we’ll make a great record” — and dissolve Fleetwood Mac after it’s finished, Caillat said. However, he added, “It wasn’t quite so easy to do, because the lyrics were all about the breakup. So, every now and again, somebody would be working on a song and one of the lyrics would (sting) and another fight would break out.” However, Caillat said, that familiar human drama “was embedded in the music so deeply that 35 years later it still resonates with people. It’s probably why the record sold 44 million copies.” Despite working 14-15 hour days, nearly seven days a week, recording “Rumours” was also a transformative experience for the young Caillat, who was hired as an engineer, then eventually given more duties and creative license, eventually being granted a portion of the album royalties. “Partly why I wrote the book is because it was such
an amazing year for me — being at the right place at the right time and watching this amazing music go down,” he said. The book is written in diary format, allowing the reader to follow the band through the recording process. “I wanted people to feel what it (was like) … to sit with the real band every day —they come in, they’re cranky, they’re hung over, whatever, they’ve got to work and they hope they have some magic that day.” The follow-up Despite the band’s promise to “go their own ways,” two years later Caillat and Dashut were back in the studio working on Fleetwood Mac’s follow-up album, “Tusk.” So, had the band mellowed or gained perspective during those two years? “No, just the opposite,” Caillat confided, noting that the now affected rock stars each arrived at the studio with personal assistants and their preexisting grudges. “The relationship issues were still there,” Caillat said. “John could never forgive Christine, … Lindsey would always be on Stevie’s case. …

Rocky’s: A bar with burgers and brews to boast about BY KELLEY CARLSON ocky’s Crown Pub may be a small neighborhood tavern in Pacific Beach, but it’s largely known throughout San Diego for its burgers. Feted in various regional publications, the bar/restaurant, owned by Patricia “Rocky” Rockwood, is a favorite hangout. Catering to the 21-and-older crowd, the employees know quite a few of the customers on a first-name basis, creating an almost “Cheers”-like atmosphere. During a recent evening at the pub, one guest enthusiastically noted that he’s been stopping in for 20 years. Another patron, from northern California, said she and her son, who resides in Pacific Beach, regularly visit Rocky’s when she’s in town; her daughter also insists on going there when she visits from Alaska. “Everyone seems to love it so much, they come back,” said Jerry Brim, a manager. There’s no pretentiousness at Rocky’s; it’s very down-to-earth and laid-back. There’s a bar that runs nearly the length of the establishment and about a half-dozen tables in the dining area. No matter where people sit, they can watch a sporting event, with nine flatscreens showing a variety of games. The sounds of game buzzers intermingle with the pub’s music, which ranges from

■ This week’s recipe: Rocky’s Burger Rocky’s employees Mikey Schindler, Jerry Brim and Jim Johnson classic rock and blues to modern. Various knickknacks furnish the wood walls, from Celtic and Bud Light brand surfboards and a photo of the Blue Angels, to neon signs that advertise beer and sports paraphernalia. Since the tavern has limited seating, it can get a bit crowded at times (especially 6:30-9 p.m.) but the fare is worth the wait to many. The menu is simple: burgers and fries served in a red basket. The hand-formed patties (grilled until juicy) are served between soft, lightly seeded buns that are
made fresh daily. “The burgers must be good; (the customers) don’t come in to see me,” Brim joked. Brim suggests first-timers order the 1/3-pound burger, as the 1/2-pounder might be too much food. They can always get the larger size next time, he added. To accompany the burgers, there is icecold beer, which is especially refreshing on a warm, humid day, when both of the building’s doors are open and the ocean breeze is flowing through. Among the selections are Bud Light, Coors Light, Ballast Point Pale Ale, Green Flash West Coast IPA,

Stone Levitation Ale, Pacifico, Sierra Nevada, Racer 5, Blue Moon, Stella Artois and Coronado’s Mermaid Red Ale. Ballast Point Sculpin is coming soon, Brim said. In addition, there is wine: chardonnay, pinot grigio, cabernet, pinot noir and white zinfandel. In lieu of a happy hour, Rocky’s offers a special from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. MondayFriday; it’s a 1/2-pound burger, with or without cheese; fries; and a soda or beer for $10.50.

Davis (Richard Baird) watches as Manny (Steven Lone) faces the decisions he must make in North Coast Repertory Theatre’s ‘Becoming Cuba.’ PHOTO/KEN JACQUES
War, family and fantasy mingle in ‘Becoming Cuba’ BY DIANA SAENGER Let’s Review Staging a world premiere production is rare for small theater company, but is the privilege of Solana Beach’s North Coast Repertory Theatre (NCRT) with playwright Melinda Lopez’s war drama, “Becoming Cuba.” Commissioned by Jenie and Vin Altruda for NCRT the entertaining epic is directed by David Ellenstein, and runs through June 23. “Becoming Cuba” is set in Havana during the winter of 1897-1898, an intense time of war between Cuba and Spain. Adela (Eileen Faxas) runs a pharmacy there and is desperately trying to keep her and her half-sister Martina (Maritxell Carrero) alive in a country boiling over with political problems. Adela already mourns the loss of her beloved loyalist husband, and worries about her brother Manny (Steven Lone), a rebel, who is away fighting for their country. New York reporter Davis (Richard Baird) has chosen her pharmacy as his sanctuary from which to pen his newspaper column. It upsets him that Adela will not even read the paper, while Martina scours it but misses the important parts. Times are tough and
If you go What: ‘Becoming Cuba’ When: Matinees, evenings to June 23 Where: North Coast Repertory Theatre, 987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Solana Beach Tickets: $37 - $54 Box Office: (858) 4811055 Web: northcoastrep. org sales at the pharmacy are scarce. When Fancy (Catalina Maynard) makes a visit to pick up medicine for her ailments, Martina swirls around her like a bee to honey. She showers Fanny with praises about her complexion, while stealing the woman’s white gloves. Adela is appalled by Martina’s action, especially since Fanny is the wife of Spanish Captain Isidore (Mark Pinter). He’s a belligerent, controlling captain, who at one point, nearly ends Adela’s operation of the pharmacy. When Manny stumbles into the pharmacy half-dead, injured, bedraggled and hungry, the intensity of the story heats up. Will he be discovered? Will Davis be able to thwart Martina’s advances
when he has his eyes on Adela? Will the ragamuffin Chucho (David Coffey) be the undoing of the pharmacy? Will Adela and Martina stop Manny from returning to war? These questions are artfully asked and answered in Lopez’s heartfelt, creative script. It’s part history, somewhat of a romance and definitely an intriguing drama. Adding other interesting points of view, are two ghostly spirits — a Conquistador (Pinter) and an inspirational revolutionary (Maynard) who bring both threats and fun to the story’s unraveling. The cast is excellent providing both laughter and tense moments. Baird and Pinter are becoming excellent heavyweights in NCRT productions. Lone brings a Jimmy Smitts persona to his role in terms of believability. Faxas presents a strong take on Adela, a woman who can only stand her ground so long. Carrero is an adorable, feisty spitfire, who seems one-dimensional until destiny arrives. Chucho and Maynard play their roles earnestly. As usual, the set design by Marty Burnett is superb, keeping us within the confines of the pharmacy, but letting us see the horrors of war unfold there as well.

Kids Korps Fit Club raises $45,000 through Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon — and still going! Twenty jubilant runners from the Kids Korps FIT Club Charity Team crossed the finish line at the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon and Half Marathon this past Sunday. This year’s team, sponsored by Hoehn Motors, has raised over $45,000 for Kids Korps and the 350 nonprofit agencies that it works with. “We were excited about the opportunity to work with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon this year to help increase the awareness of our organization, and further educate the community about how important the impact of our youth has had through our organization for over 18 years.” Now is the time to keep the momentum going by increasing our member base, creating new and fun programs through our partner agencies, and re-creating Kids Korps USA into the premiere youth and family service organization,” says Ilia Dickey, board member and FIT Club Charity Team participant. Tenley Molzahn, former “Bachelor” star, also ran on Kids Korps behalf this year and created a great media buzz about the cause. In it’s first year of the new FIT Club program, runners from all over San Diego County had a great time training together and raising funds for such a great cause.

On June 7 he will return to campus where he will be featured in “U.S. Pivot to Asia: What Does it Mean for the U.S.-China Relations?,” a free public talk moderated by Susan Shirk, chair of the 21st Century China Program at the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS).

Local physical therapist helps people with heart and breathing problems improve quality of life BY CATHERINE KOLONKO A Carmel Valley woman has set up a new physical therapy facility designed to help people with heart and breathing troubles improve their mobility and quality of life. Vital Physical Therapy Practice in Mission Valley includes cardiac services as well as pulmonary physical therapy for people with breathing difficulties, said owner Komal Deokule, who lives with her husband and two children in Carmel Valley. â€œBasically itâ€™s a niche outpatient, physical therapy practice that specializes in cardio vascular, pulmonary patients,â€? explained Deokule. Deokule also looks at comorbidities of her patients, such as diabetes, balance issues, and aches and pains associated with muscular skeletal problems. â€œWhen these patients come to us we give them a complete evaluation of all their problems.â€? Deokule is a board certified cardiopulmonary clinical specialist physical therapist. She has two decades of experience in her field and received her U.S. board certification last year from the American Physical Therapy Association. She earned a
Komal Deokule PT, MSc. PT, CCS, MCSP, MPNZ, MIAP bachelor of physiotherapy from Maharaja Sayairao University, India, in 1992 and masterâ€™s from University College of London, Britain in 1999. She practiced in Britain and New Zealand before moving to the United States in 2007. In addition to her practice, she is an adjunct professor at the University of St. Augustine in San Marcos, where she teaches cardiopulmonary physical therapy. She opened her business in April of this year because she observed a gap in availability of outpatient services for cardiac care patients. She set out to offer comprehensive, evidencebased cardiovascular physical therapy for people who have experienced health issues, such as heart attacks, surgeries, stint implants and transplants.
Deokule said her facility has a well-equipped gym with a treadmill, bike and weight machines and stateof-the-art monitoring and testing equipment. A typical nine-week program involves whole-body strengthening to improve muscle weakness, and balance. Patients go to the facility for an hour and complete their exercise therapy on site with a goal to empower them with knowledge and techniques that they can continue to use in their everyday lives. Based on findings from her initial evaluation, Deokule develops individualized exercise prescriptions for patients to follow. The physical therapy plan that she develops depends on the patientâ€™s cardiac state and issues, as well as comorbidities, but typically includes circuit training of alternate upper and lower limbs, she said. â€œBasically itâ€™s balance, strength and endurance training that we offer to our cardiac patients and itâ€™s all monitoredâ€? Deokule said. While at the clinic, patients wear a heart rate monitor to ensure they exercise at the optimal, beneficial rate. At the same time they are getting attuned with their perception of exertion.
" $ "&
â€œThen when they go out into the community, they know exactly how to exercise,â€? Deokule said. Her program includes quality of life questionnaires before and after the program that enables her to evaluate a patientâ€™s progress. â€œThat way we know exactly what outcome we have.â€? Patients come to the practice through doctor referral or on their own because they want to do more to recover from an acute cardiac event such as a heart attack, she said. Often patients have diabetes or other additional health concerns that need to be considered along with the heart condition. Deokule works closely with healthcare professionals involved with her patients to ensure continuity. She noted that in California a physician referral is required before a patient can start cardio physical therapy. â€œIf there has been an acute event, then they can go to the doctor get a referral and come to us,â€? she said. If a patient wants to go to Deokule for health maintenance, insurance typically will not cover the cost. In that case, a cash-based program that cost roughly $1,800 for nine weeks of
twice weekly visits including initial and final assessments and testing. Pulmonary physical therapy for patients with breathing problems as a result of asthma, cardio obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or chronic heart failure is another service that Deokule offers at her facility. Through supervised monitored therapeutic exercises patients increase exercise tolerance and learn different techniques to help them breathe better, she said. In addition to the physical therapy, she instructs patients on relaxation techniques and educational sessions that cover different topics specific to their disease or condition. The relaxation techniques are aimed at reducing psychological stress, a key risk factor for coronary artery disease, she said. Exercise therapy also targets other risk factors such as hypertension and diabetes, high cholesterol, and physical inactivity, Deokule said. â€œWhen they are finished with the program they have all the tools that they can use to continue the long-term health benefit,â€? Deokule said. The practice is located at 5353 Mission Center Road, Suite 120, San Diego, 92108. For more information, call 858255-7976 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS
Summertime and the braces are easy, says Dr. Robert Sunstein BY MARTI GACIOCH Summer is the best time to put braces on a child who needs them, said La Jolla orthodontist Dr. Robert Sunstein, DDS. â€œEveryoneâ€™s schedule is so much more open to the time it takes for the health records, putting the braces on, and then reviewing how to take care of them,â€? Sunstein said. â€œNowadays, braces can be put in place in less than four minutes.â€? To illustrate the ease and effects of todayâ€™s braces, Sunstein created a video showing how to apply and wear braces, which also explains how quickly teeth
PRODUCER continued from page B3 â€œThey had made a lot of money off of â€˜Rumorsâ€™ and they were now superstars and there was a decadence factor. They all had their own personal stash of whatever their favorite drugs were and we had lobster brought in every night for dinner and built our own million-dollar studio to record. Christine had to have her Pouilly-FuissĂŠ wine or the session would end and sheâ€™d be furious.â€? To make matters worse, Buckingham demanded complete creative control, threatening to leave Fleetwood Mac if the rest of the members didnâ€™t follow his lead, Caillat said. â€œLindsey decided he didnâ€™t want to do another record like â€˜Rumours.â€™ He was looking for a new self and he didnâ€™t know who he wanted to be. â€Ś He wanted everything to sound grungy. â€œThat record was basically made under a hostage situation, if you will, loosely speaking. It was very strange, just very decadent,â€? including the nearly impossible task of recording the USC Trojan marching band at Dodger Stadium for the albumâ€™s title track (Mick Fleetwoodâ€™s brainchild). â€œActually, itâ€™s a terrific album but at the time I had my doubts,â€? Caillat said. â€œI was so embarrassed of the sound. It was just so grungy. It took every bit of effort we could to make it clean and enjoyable.â€?

Dr. Robert Sunstein, DDS. can be straightened. The video will soon be available on both YouTube and his website, www.sandiegoorthodontist.com/ Treatment time for braces is usually 10-18 months, Sunstein said, adding it can take a little shorter time for younger children and a little longer time for older kids. Sunstein said he works with both children and adults. â€œWe do metal braces, clear braces and removable Invisalign to straighten teeth,â€? he said. â€œWeâ€™re getting to the point that we can take digital images of the teeth and make retainers, crowns and/or bridges without even taking any impressions of the teeth. We
can literally take a digital image of the tooth and email it to the lab and they can fabricate a crown, a retainer or an implant.â€? Over the past 15 years, Sunstein said heâ€™s watched orthodontic technology evolve so rapidly that the best quality techniques are now available to accelerate teeth straightening. Also known as â€œthe Sunny Smile Specialist,â€? Sunstein works out of two offices, one in La Jolla and the other in Carmel Valley. Both are equipped with state-of-the art technology, including digital radiology offering minimal radiation. â€œWeâ€™re open six days a week, including Saturdays, and have early morning appointments (beginning at 8 a.m.) and early evening appointments (from 6:30 p.m.) on different days,â€? Sunstein said. â€œWe even have lunchtime appointments, too, to accommodate our busy patients. I have the best staff in each office, which enable me to go back and forth.â€?

San Diego Jewish Academy students reach out to child victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes San Diego Jewish Academyâ€™s kindergarten through 5th grade students gathered May 28 to help the child victims of the recent Oklahoma tornadoes. â€œMoney is always needed,â€? noted Daniel Sussman, SDJAâ€™s lower school principal, â€œbut our students wanted to do something meaningful; something hands-on and personal.â€? San Diego Jewish Academy reached out to a synagogue in the Oklahoma City area to find out exactly what they could do to help. The answer was â€œpersonal itemsâ€?: toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, diapers and more. They asked for everyday items that the Oklahoma victims are now forced to do without. So, SDJAâ€™s student body set to work on purchasing new personal items to send to the synagogue so that they could distribute the items to those most in need. In addition, the students are attaching hand-written notes letting the children in Oklahoma know there are children here who care about them. â€œThe students were very clear,â€? added Sussman. â€œThey wanted to reach out in a personal way so that the Oklahoma children especially would know there were other children in the country who cared about them.â€? SDJAâ€™s lower school art

While Supplies Last! 1st and 2nd graders with donation boxes department also got involved by preparing the boxes that will hold all of the items. â€œWe wanted to personalize everything,â€? said Robin Hackett, an art teacher at SDJA. â€œWeâ€™re even decorating the shipping boxes; anything to help brighten the childrenâ€™s day.â€? Sussman held an assembly to provide age-appropriate information on the devastation to his students, and then everyone â€“ students, teachers, staff and parents â€“ attached their personal notes and load up all of the care packages.

Girl Scout working toward Gold Award, organizes Open House for SD County Animal Services Avalon Chaffer, a senior Girl Scout from the Solana Ranch Service Unit, Troop 1106, is finishing her work on her Gold Award. As one of her tasks, on Saturday, June 1, she organized an Open House for the San Diego County Animal Services in Carlsbad. She created a media presentation and has presented to several groups around the community with the goal to promote not only where the new shelter is located but also to promote what services they offer to animals to the community. Avalon has always been interested in animals and has several pets herself so she thought a project with animals was a perfect fit for her interests. The SD County Animal shelter, located at 2481 Palomar Airport Rd. in Carlsbad, has a veterinary facility, which allows them to spay or neuter pets along with tagging or otherwise known as chipping services for your pets. Not to mention the shelter has dogs, cats and rabbits for adoption and is open Mondays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Avalon has been a girl scout since kindergarten at Rancho Santa Fe School and plans to continue until she graduates from high school. She looks forward to receiving her Gold Award this fall along with several girls in her troop. Her project has been giving her a chance to stretch her leadership skills while helping her community. She plans to expand her volunteering at the shelter and help facilitate another Open House event for the shelter next year.
On the evening of May 23 eight recipients of the People In Preservation Awards from Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO) were feted at a special event held at the Point Loma Assembly clubhouse, a restored turn-of-the-century meeting hall. Each year SOHO, the county’s largest and California’s oldest continuously operating preservation group, has saluted individuals and groups who have helped preserve important aspects of the county’s heritage. Recognition of those who helped in the fight to save the historical integrity of Balboa Park kicked off the evening. The Plaza de Panama People In The Trenches tribute applauded this major achievement that halted the park’s proposed massive development. Diane Welch, author, was honored for her 2010 book, “Lilian J. Rice, Architect of Rancho Santa Fe.” Welch’s Award, “A Monumental Work Award” was one of two that she received that day as County Supervisor Dave Roberts, Third District, also awarded Welch an official Certificate of Recognition in honor of her achievements. The County award was, “In appreciation of your advancement of historical knowledge about Lilian J. Rice and her importance to the architectural history in our community,” as noted on the certificate. The SOHO jury was impressed by the level of dedication and determination that Welch, a Solana Beach resident and feature journalist, has shown through her research and subsequent publishing of her book on Lilian J. Rice. “She brought to highlight Rice’s importance in the architectural history of the region, thereby contributing to the advancement of historical knowledge in the community as well. Diane’s ongoing mission to share the Lilian Rice story

is admirable and her efforts to enlighten the public on her life and legacy are to be commended,” said Bruce Coons, SOHO executive director. Read WelchOnRice. blogspot.com to learn more about Diane Welch’s work on Lilian Rice.

Ashley Falls Cafe
he third-graders at Ashley Falls School opened a cafe May 31 where they served parents a variety of delicious treats. The event also provided students the opportunity to learn about customer service, proper table setting and other restaurant operating procedures. This event was the culminating activity for the schoolâ€™s economics unit. The students also learned about profit and loss and how to run a profitable business efficiently. After expenses, the students earned almost $400 which will be donated to the Rancho Coastal Humane Society. For photos online, visit www. delmartimes.net PHOTOS/JON CLARK
