Harassment claim made by third woman against Filner BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A third woman stepped forward July 24 to accuse San Diego Mayor Bob Filner of sexual harassment, while a group of women military veterans announced that it has rescinded an invitation for the former congressman to speak at its conference next month. According to KPBS, San Diego Unified School District psychologist Morgan Rose said she met with Filner in 2009 at a restaurant across from his congressional office to discuss her initiative dedicated to the well-being of America’s children. She said that during their discussion, he told her ``your eyes have bewitched me’’ and moved next to her. Rose said Filner tried to kiss her four times and only stopped when he received a phone call. She told the station that he said he wouldn’t move See FILNER, page 6

Male suspects burglarize CV home
On Friday, July 19, between 10:20-11 a.m., a home on the 3700 block of Overpark Road in Carmel Valley was burglarized. The suspects gained entry to the home through a broken glass door. Two male suspects were seen in the area by residents who called in to the police. A police helicopter and patrol units checked the area for the suspects but were unable to locate them. The San Diego Police Department issued a statement reminding “people how important it is for neighbors to watch for and call in suspicious activity. You never know, your call could prevent, stop, or help arrest someone in a crime.” For updates on this story, visit www.delmartimes.net.

Local resident leading effort to recall Mayor Filner BY ASHLEY MACKIN Attorney and land surveyor Michael Pallamary of La Jolla is at the front of the charge to recall San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. A longtime Filner foe, Pallamary said he created a “Recall Bob Filner” Facebook page in May (before the sexual assault allegations were an-
nounced against the mayor) and on July 19 held a rally at City Hall to recruit volunteers. Of the Facebook page, Pallamary said, “I put the page up just to see if there was interest (in recalling Filner) and to solicit comments.” Seeing plenty, he started asking for legitimate
reasons for the recall to incorporate into the legal statement he intended to file. Suggestions, and “likes,” came in gradually before the allegations were announced on July 11. Pallamary reports there were approximately 300 likes on the Facebook page before the al-
legations, and as of July 22, there were more than 5,000 likes. At the rally, Pallamary spoke about the recall effort along with KFMB radio host Mike Slater. “This is not about party, it’s about principle,” Slater said. “It’s not about right
and left, it’s about right and wrong.” Slater noted that Filner is demanding due process in the investigation into the sexual harassment allegations, and said, “This recall effort is due process.” Pallamary’s 10-year-old granddaughter, Paige, also spoke at the rally and said See RECALL, page 6

BY ROB LEDONNE The biggest stars in Hollywood, the richest people in the country, and businesses so glamorous that they ignited a tremendous growth and interest in Southern California. That was Del Mar in the 1930s, a time of glitz and glamor thanks largely in part to the Del Mar Racetrack in its heyday. However, central to the racetrack’s exploding notoriety was an airport, long forgotten, located right in Del Mar. “We don’t know much about specifics,” explained Mac
McBride, the director of media for the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. “It was refereed to as the Del Mar Airport, and it was made up of a few hangers and a landing strip.” At one point in the 1930s, the airport ran multiple flights a day in and out of Burbank (now known as Bob Hope Airport,) on DC-3 planes operated by private airlines. One person who remembers the airport fondly is Bill Scherlis, who was the racetrack’s resident photographer from 1945 until the 1970s. Scherlis, who turns 90 this October, recalls that the airport

Strong home sales and continued tight inventory push up San Diego County’s home prices in June High demand, tight inventory and low interest rates continue to drive up San Diego County’s home prices and sales. For the first time since January 2008 the median price for a single-family detached home in North San Diego County increased to $565,000 compared to $555,500 in May 2013, the North San Diego County Association of REALTORS® reported. Signaling a healthier market, June’s price was up 20.21 percent from $470,000 recorded in June 2012, marking the 11th month of year-over double digit gains; the last four months exceeding 20 percent. The median is the middle priced home sold; half the homes sold for more than the median, and half sold for less. •Low inventory and market competition significantly decreased the time a home spent on the market compared
with a year ago. Homes sold faster in June 2013, with the median number of days it took to sell a single-family home at 19 days in June, slightly up from 18 days in May, and down from 46 days in July 2012. •SFD listings (active and contingent) in North San Diego County increased 5.97 percent from May 2013 to June 2013 and decreased 26.1 percent year-over from June 2012.
•The percentage of households that could afford a median-priced SFD home in North San Diego County remained at 28 percent in June 2013 compared to May. Affordability percentages assume homeowners place 20 percent down and spend no more than a third of their income on housing- an amount earned by 38 percent of county households for the median priced home. •The available supply of unsold inventory for singlefamily detached homes in San Diego County continues to impact price appreciation of homes. Inventory for May 2013 in San Diego County was 2.8 months, down from 3.1 months in April 2013. The May 2013 inventory is down from a 4.2 months supply in May 2012. A six to seven month supply of unsold inventory is considered normal. •Mortgage rates increased in June, with the 30year fixed-mortgage interest rate averaging 4.07 percent, up from 3.54 percent in May 2013 and up from 3.68 percent in June 2012, according to Freddie Mac. Adjustablemortgage interest rates in June averaged 2.60 percent,
up from 2.55 percent reported in May, and down from 2.76 reported in June 2012.

Del Mar to remove Torrey Pine trees from Seagrove Park The City of Del Mar will be removing two Torrey Pine trees from Seagrove Park. The tree removals are required due to the trees’ declining physical condition and their subsequent hazard presented to park visitors, according to the city. Public Works is collaborating with the Parks and Recreation Committee and the Del Mar Garden Club to select appropriate replacement trees. Additional recent park enhancements include a Seagrove Park planting area and a new cable fence adjacent to the Tot-Lot. The public may contact the City of Del Mar’s Public Works Department at GroupPublicWorks@delmar.ca.us, or contact Public Works Deputy Director Joe Bride at 858-755-3294, with any questions related to the enhancements at Seagrove Park.
Oversized vehicle parking continues to be a problem in Carmel Valley, elsewhere BY KAREN BILLING On July 8, San Diego City Council passed an oversize vehicle ordinance preventing large vehicles, such as motor homes and trailers, to be parked overnight on any public street in San Diego. Oversized vehicle parking is a complicated issue that the city has dealt with for a long time and Carmel Valley residents have complained about oversized nuisances before the Carmel Valley Planning Board over the last year on streets such as Quarter Mile Drive and Carmel Vista. While the ordinance passed, it may take some time before it goes into effect, according to Mo Kantner, a representative for District 1 Council President pro-tem Sherri Lightner. Kantner reported at the Torrey Hills Community Planning Board meeting on July 16 that the ordinance now travels to the Coastal Commission for approval, which could take anywhere from six to 24 months. According to a report by District 2 Councilman Kevin Faulconer, who led the effort on passing the ordinance, illegally parked oversized vehicles impact public safety as well as quality of life. City residents have reported vehicles parked in front of homes and businesses for weeks or even months taking up parking spaces, blocking views and limiting access to driveways. There is also a public safety concern as residents have reported the dumping of human waste in public streets from illegally parked vehicles The ordinance prevents large vehicles from parking on city streets between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. A permitting process is included in the ordinance for residents who wish to park recreational vehicles on their streets while preparing for trips for up to 24 hours. No more than 72 permits could be issued to any one address in a calendar year and permits could not be issued for consecutive periods longer than 72 hours. The suggested fee is $1 per 24 hour permit. Violations would come with a $100 fine. City Council passed the ordinance with a 6-2 vote, with Lightner representing one of the two votes against it.
New public park planned for Torrey Hills 4904 San Elijo | Rancho Santa Fe | Sold at $3,125,000
BY KAREN BILLING A new public park is currently on the drawing table for the Torrey Hills community, now named Ocean View Park. The one-acre park comes with the new 384-unit Garden Communities, now under construction on Calle Mar de Mariposa and East Ocean Air Drive. According to project manager Dee Snow, Ocean View is very early on in the design process and they do not have a schedule for completion yet. She said they aim for Ocean View to be a passive use park for both the apartment residents and the community. “It will have a play area for children but the primary focus is the lookout, that’s why it’s called Ocean View,” said Snow. “It has a vantage point where you can see the ocean.” Snow said there are tentative plans for the park to include a walking path and work-out stations. In addition to the 384 apartment units and the park, the Garden Communities development will also include 4,000 square feet of retail, likely four “neighborhood service” tenants yet to be determined, such as a coffee shop or dry cleaners. The construction of the project’s underground garages has been completed and the framing on the buildings just started last week. Snow could not give any firm completion timelines for the park or when the first residents might move in but told the Torrey Hills Community Planning Board a possible completion date for the entire project could be 2016.
Former bookkeeper to be sentenced for embezzlement 510 Torrey Point | Del Mar | Offered at $2,995,000
firstname.lastname@example.org CA BRE: 01199071
BY CITY NEWS SERVICE Sentencing was postponed July 24 until Aug. 21 for a former bookkeeper who embezzled more than $545,000 from the Leucadia Pizzeria chain. Susan Dawn Seibert, 49, pleaded guilty last month to one count each of embezzlement and forgery and admitted an allegation that she took more than $500,000 from her employer. Judge David Berry is scheduled to sentence the defendant to four years in prison. Authorities said Seibert forged checks to herself during her four years with the company. The defendant quit her job last year when she learned that the restaurant planned to audit the books, according to Deputy District Attorney Anna Winn. The audit showed that Seibert had written 172 checks to herself from the Leucadia Pizzeria account, Winn said, adding that the checks were forged with an owner’s signature. Winn said Seibert covered up the embezzlement by listing legitimate vendors as the recipients of the checks. The prosecutor said Seibert told the Leucadia Pizzeria owners that she took the money to pay back a previous employer who had sued her for embezzlement. Leucadia Pizzeria has stores in Encinitas, La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe.

Del Mar screenwriter shares real online dating experience in first short film BY KRISTINA HOUCK Two people meet online and go on a date. Although the premise of “Rolling Romance” sounds familiar, the two main characters in this short film have muscular dystrophy. Written by Del Mar screenwriter Michael Carnick, “Rolling Romance” is a dark comedy about sex, drugs and disability. The 22-minute film, which was shot in 2012 in Los Angeles, was inspired by Carnick’s real experience with online dating. “The event was so surreal — two people in wheelchairs dating,” said 31-year-old Carnick. “It’s not something you see in movies, so I thought it would make a really good movie.” Born with a rare muscular dystrophy-like condition known as congenital fiber-type disproportion, much of Carnick’s work focuses on disability awareness and the experience of being a minority. “I wanted to get across the idea that people with disabilities are just like everybody else,” Carnick said. “We do go on dates, we have bad dates, we act stupid, we do drugs, we talk about sex and we act like [jerks].” Always a storyteller, Carnick discovered his passion for writing stage plays and screenplays after enrolling in a set design class at the University of California, San Diego. The class inspired him to change his major. “It’s a very visual storytelling as opposed to a book,” Carnick said. “You tell it with visuals, and I’ve always really enjoyed that.” In a screenwriting class, Carnick wrote “Who’s Driving Doug?”, a feature-length script that won first place at the 50th Anniversary Samuel Goldwyn Writing Awards. He was the first undergrad to receive the award. After graduating from UCSD, Carnick went on to get his MFA in creative writing for the performing arts from the University of California, Riverside. “Rolling Romance” follows Orson, portrayed by David Holt, and Janice, portrayed by Emily Goss, who meet online and go on a horrible, yet hilarious date. The film is produced by Melissa Harkness, whom Carnick met while they both were in the MFA program at UCR. The dark comedy was directed by David Conley, who used his own camera equipment to shoot the film, which was funded by Carnick’s family and more than $5,000 in donations from Kickstarter, an online funding platform. Carnick said he believes the project had 93 backers on Kickstarter because the topic is “universal.” “It touches people,” he said. “We’re all trying to find love, whatever color or shape we are.” A private screening of “Rolling Romance” took place at 6 p.m. on July 21 at La Paloma Theater in Encinitas. There
was a Q&A with select cast and crew after the screening. “It’s a good movie. I think people are going to like it,” Carnick said. “It’s a short movie, but it goes through a range of genres and emotions, from sad, to heartwarming to funny. I think you get a big experience out of it even though it’s a small investment of your time.” For more information about “Rolling Romance,” visit www.rollingromancefilm.com.

FBI raids business in Carmel Valley BY CITY NEWS SERVICE Federal agents served a search warrant July 24 at a Carmel Valley high-tech business as part of an ongoing investigation of undisclosed nature. The FBI raid at Torrey Pines Logic Inc. in the 12600 block of High Bluff Drive began about 8:30 a.m., said Darrell Foxworth, a spokesman for the government agency. The probe into the operations of the firm — which sells lasers, sensors, optical-communication products and image-processing equipment — involves a court order that has been sealed by a judge, Foxworth said. There were no immediate arrests, he said.

FILNER continued from page 1 until she kissed him. Rose said she has called a hotline set up by the Sheriff’s Department to take complaints against the mayor. The department has been designated as the lead law enforcement agency for investigating the claims. On Tuesday, a former campaign staffer told KPBS that Filner patted her bottom at a 2005 fundraising event, also when he was a congressman. Laura Fink said she demanded an apology from Filner in an email, and received a mumbled ``I’m sorry’’ a couple of days later. On Monday, Filner’s former communications director became the first woman to publicly describe Filner’s alleged actions toward her. Irene McCormack Jackson, 57, said that during her around six months employment in the mayor’s office,
Filner held her in a headlock while demanding kisses. She also alleged the mayor told her she should work without her panties on, that he wanted to see her naked, that he could not wait to consummate their relationship, and that he wanted to marry her. A poll by 10News said 72 percent of respondents found McCormack Jackson’s allegations to be credible. Another 12 percent said they were not, while 16 percent were undecided. In another development, Voiceofsandiego.org reported that an unidentified woman has lodged a complaint with the state Department of Fair Employment and Housing, claiming she was sexually harassed by Filner. The website’s report says the woman filing the complaint sought an investigation. It was unknown whether the new complainant was Fink, Rose or a fourth person. The agency

did not immediately respond to an inquiry from City News Service. McCormack Jackson’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, said a complaint was filed with the department on her client’s behalf and they were given the go-ahead to file a lawsuit against Filner. In response to the lawsuit, Filner issued the following statement: “I am saddened by the charges that were leveled against me today. Once due process is allowed to unfold, I am certain there will be a better understanding of this situation,” Filner said. “I remain committed to the people of San Diego and the work that needs to be done. My dreams and plans for moving this City to new heights are continuing. I humbly ask that through this vicious storm of controversy, people take a moment and temper their rush to judgment. “I do not believe these claims are valid,” Filner added. “That is why due process is so important. I intend to defend myself vigorously and I know that justice will prevail.”

she supports her grandfather’s efforts. After her comments, Pallamary said, “People ask me why am I doing this, you’ve just seen the reason.” Though the sexual harassment allegations were not at the foundation of his recall efforts, Pallamary told this newspaper group, “I’m tired of explaining to my 10-year-old granddaughter what sexual harassment is.” Actually at the foundation of his campaign are the claims in a 300-word statement he prepared and will file to show his intention to start the recall. Some of the claims include: Filner used police officers overseas for his personal security team at taxpayer expense; Filner repeatedly ignored city council votes and moved in a direction contrary to its wishes; and Filner punished the city attorney by slashing the attorney’s budget. The rally served as a way to sign-up volunteers who, when the recall effort officially begins in the coming weeks, will collect signatures from members in all the communities of San Diego. Once the volunteers are assembled and all the communities have representation, the formal notice of a recall will be filed.
Meanwhile, the National Womens Veterans Association of America announced that it has rescinded an invitation to Filner to speak at its conference in San Diego next month in light of the sexual harassment allegations against him. Filner, the leading Democrat on the House Veterans Committee when he was in Congress, was originally slated to be the keynote speaker at the association’s benefit gala Aug. 30 at the U.S. Grant hotel. He was also set to receive a lifetime achievement award from the organization. NWVAA President Tara Jones said Filner is still invited to attend, but will no longer be allowed to speak. ``After much careful thought and consideration, my board and I have determined and decided that Mayor Bob Filner will be removed as guest speaker on the topic of military sexual assault, sexual harassment and violence against women and children,’’ Jones told reporters. The award has also been withdrawn, she said.
From there, volunteers will have 31 days to collect 101,000 signatures on a petition. Though it is not yet available, there will also be a digital petition found at RecallBob.com Pallamary said his quandaries with Filner started more than 20 years ago. In 1991, Pallamary led the effort to recall San Diego City Councilmember Linda Bernhardt. At that time, Filner was on the city council, where Pallamary said he observed Filner and four other council members attempt to redistrict San Diego in a way that would “punish his enemies and reward his allies,” he said. Pallamary said under Filner, the city council began to fall apart. “Because of Mr. Filner’s misconduct and his harsh, unreasonable personality, the city shut down the same way it’s shutting down now,” he said. After his success in recalling Bernhardt, and history observing Filner, Pallamary said he is confident he will succeed in this recall. “I’ve been here before; I battled Mr. Filner 20 years ago. I prevailed in the court of public opinion (and) I prevailed in a court of law,” he said. “We’re in the gutter; I don’t want to see San Diego go into the sewer pipes.”

There was one at the Naval Air Station on North Island, but there was too much traffic so they constructed a few hangers and a concrete runway in Del Mar.” Referred to then as the San Dieguito Air Field, most estimates pin the airport’s construction to around the early 1920s, a few years after the 1917 opening of the Naval Air Station on North Island. It wasn’t until 1938 when the property was renamed the Del Mar Municipal Airfield, and turned over for racetrack use. The racetrack had only opened a year earlier. “The people that flew in and out of the airport were not regular people, you had to be very wealthy,” explained Scherlis. “You’d land there and then take cabs to the racetrack,” which was a few minutes away. At the time, horse racing was only second in popularity to baseball and Del Mar instantly became one of the trendiest places in the country. After the U.S. became involved in World War II in 1941, the country put fun and entertainment on hold and the racetrack, as well as the airport, were used by the U.S. Military between 1942 and 1945. Parts for B-17 bombers were manufactured at the track, and the airport was used for blimp flights, housed up to 130 people in barracks, and became a home base for anti-submarine patrols around the Western United States. Once the war ended, the property was decommissioned once again; the racetrack and airport picked up right were they left off for civilian use. It was around this time that Scherlis remembers flying in and out of the airport himself. “I went up in a Cessna to take some aerial pictures of the fairgrounds,” he remembers. “It was interesting.” In the 1950s, flights between Del Mar and Burbank were $16 round trip and were operated by the former Pacific Southwest Airlines, then in its infancy. Del Mar was still attracting the biggest stars of the day, including (perhaps the track’s biggest fan) Bing Crosby, who Scherlis photographed on one of his very first assignments. “He was with (fellow movie star) Pat O’Brien. I went to take his picture, and Crosby looks at me and asks ‘What do you want me to do?’ I was floored, here’s the biggest star in the world asking me what to do,” he remembers with a laugh almost 70 years later. As time went by, the area slowly started to change as did popularity for the airport, which experienced its last summer season in 1959, closing that September. It was then partly demolished to make room for Interstate 5, which currently runs right through the property, southeast of the current fairgrounds and at the end of Grand Avenue. It wasn’t until 2006 when many of the remaining traces of the airport disappeared during the restoration of the San Dieguito Lagoon by Southern California Edison — a historical marker was then erected. Today, the only other surviving evidence of the airport is immortalized in a song by Bing Crosby himself. “It’s called “Where the Turf Meets the Surf,” and is now the racetrack’s theme song. McBride explains, “If you listen to the lyrics, at one point he sings ‘take a plane’ ... he’s referring to the airport.”
Motorists jailed for DUI on racing season’s Opening Day BY CITY NEWS SERVICE Ten motorists were jailed on suspicion of driving while intoxicated around the Del Mar Racetrack on opening day, July 17, of this summer’s horse-racing season at the oceanfront venue, authorities reported. Law enforcement personnel from around the county made the arrests Wednesday as part of a DUI ``saturation patrol’’ in Del Mar and nearby areas in Encinitas, Solana Beach and northern San Diego, sheriff’s Lt. Julius Faulkner said. During the operation, which ran from late afternoon until midnight, officers and deputies made 111 traffic stops, performed 25 field sobriety evaluations, issued four traffic tickets and impounded 10 vehicles, the lieutenant said. The special detail was funded by a grant from the state Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The courage to ask questions BY SCOTT M. LIPPMAN Think of a very serious cancer. You can reduce the risk of that cancer to almost zero, but to do so, you must undergo major surgery. Now imagine that a very good genetic test exists that can determine your risk for that cancer and help you decide whether to pursue the riskreducing surgery. Would you take the test? Actress and celebrity Angelina Jolie did. She tested positive for the BRCA1 gene and underwent a double mastectomy to reduce her risk of breast cancer. She also announced plans to undergo an oophorectomy, or removal of her ovaries, to reduce the high risk of ovarian cancer associated with BRCA1. Her actions have prompted new questions and conversations about genetic testing for cancer risk. The recent headlines focused on Ms. Jolieâ€™s surgery, reconstruction and recovery, but her story has an equally important message for all of us: Know your family history of cancer. Ms. Jolie had genetic testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2 because of a strong family history of ovarian and breast cancer. Her mother succumbed in 2007 to ovarian cancer; an aunt died of breast cancer just two weeks after the actress announced her surgeries. Genetic testing for
Dr. Scott Lippman cancer risk, however, isnâ€™t for everyone. Itâ€™s for people in families with a measurable predisposition to cancer. Genetic testing is a very personalized way to sort out which family members have a high cancer risk, and what they can do about it. Experts who conduct genetic testing are called genetic counselors. Their goal for families at high risk is to steer them toward cancer prevention and early detection. Prevention and detection experts then figure out what cancer screening tests or procedures are appropriate, considering factors like a personâ€™s age, which gene is increasing his or her cancer risk, and what other medical issues may be involved. For example, options for women who test positive for BRCA1/2 may include mastectomies and reconstruction, as Ms. Jolie chose, which reduces the risk of breast cancer as much
as possible. Alternatively, many women opt for increased monitoring for indications of disease by adding a breast MRI to yearly mammograms. Like deciding to get tested for genetic cancer risk, these options take courage, too. Itâ€™s tougher to deal with the risk of ovarian cancer in BRCA1/2-positive women. There is no accurate current test to detect ovarian cancer at an early stage, so most of these at-risk women have their ovaries removed when no longer wishing to bear children, as they approach menopause. Genetic counselors are specialists in evaluating a familyâ€™s history, determining whether genetic testing could be useful, and coordinating the genetic testing process for the family. They also understand a very real and important concern for many people: It is emotionally difficult to discuss your relativesâ€™ cancers, especially when your family has had more than its share of cancer cases. Lisa Madlensky, Ph.D., is a board-certified genetic counselor specializing in cancer genetics at the UC San Diego Moores
Cancer Center. A counseling appointment with her usually lasts at least an hour. She goes through the family history in detail and then provides an accurate assessment of the familyâ€™s cancer pattern. Although Ms. Jolie has drawn attention to BRCA1/2 and the risks of ovarian and breast cancer, itâ€™s important to know that other genes can increase the risk of other cancers. For example, four genes in a rare condition called Lynch Syndrome increase the risk of colon, uterine and other cancers. Families with Lynch Syndrome receive a personalized medical management plan designed by high-risk specialist teams (including doctors from multiple disciplines) that can include yearly colonoscopies and other tests. Other syndromes are associated with some pancreatic cancers, melanomas or endocrine cancers. Although most of these syndromes are fortunately quite rare, when they happen in your family, itâ€™s important to connect with a cancer genetics specialist to get the most up-to-date and personalized information. There is no â€œone size fits allâ€? approach. Just as more personalized approaches are increasing in cancer treatment, they are

increasing in cancer prevention and early detection, too. Another example of personalized breast-cancer risk assessment and prevention that Iâ€™ll visit in a future column is the Athena Breast Health Program at the five UC medical centers. The first step, though, can be the toughest. It takes courage to begin asking questions about family cancer history or genetic testing for cancer risk, as Ms. Jolie and others have done. Fortunately, Dr. Madlensky and other expert cancer genetic counselors throughout San Diego are available to help. They guide people through this complicated process, ultimately reducing the toll of cancer on families who have inherited a high risk. Scott M.

‘Adopt-A-Spot’ Del Mar program helps to beautify public areas An area filled with weeds, foxtails and other neglected plant materials lining a fence along a city-owned alleyway has been beautified as the latest project in the City of Del Mar’s Adopt-A-Spot program. Scott and Alexis Kurtz, who live on Stratford Court adjacent to the fence, are the newest residents to present a design plan under the Adopt-A-Spot program and undertake the work to improve the public area along an alley leading to the Winston School baseball field. Their project follows others by residents who have taken on public areas, such as a landscaping area between the Beach Safety Center and Del Mar Motel, two areas of Seagrove Park, the vacant lot west of Crest Reservoir, the Zapo Street ravine, a divider along Camino del Mar, the southwest corner of 9th Street and Stratford Court, pathways along Jimmy Durante Blvd. and the Grand Ave. bridge platform. “The program gives caring neighbors an opportunity to propose ways to beautify neighborhood ‘spots’ on public property by tree trimming, removal of invasive species, sweeping, removing trash and clearing weeds,” said Del Mar Mayor Terry Sinnott. “The goal is a neighborhood-friendly program to support citizen and business participation while improving the beauty of the Village of Del Mar.” The City’s Parks and Recreation Committee encourages citizens and businesses to participate in the Adopt-A-Spot program and will assist with the review of those projects planned by adoptees that encompass significant modifications to a “spot.” City Public Works’ staff will assist through providing safety vests, traffic cones or Waste Management containers for green waste disposal. Applications are available for download on the City website, through the Public Works Department by calling 858 755-3294 or emailing email@example.com.

Veterans for peace seek donations to buy sleeping bags for homeless
Eddie Read Stakes winner A determined Jeranimo bursts by horses to post a 1 1/2-length victory in the $300,000 Eddie Read Stakes on July 20 at Del Mar, the first Grade I race of the current meet. Vagabond Shoes got up for second, while Fly Lexis Fly held on for third. The 7-year-old Jeranimo, who was sent off as the favorite, covered the 1 1/8 miles in 1:44.79, a second off the course record. He is owned by B.J. Wright and Robert LaPenta and trained by Mike Pender. Closing Range won the day’s supporting feature, the Osunitas Stakes (not pictured). Photo by Kelley Carlson
Since 2010, the San Diego Veterans For Peace, the local chapter of the national 501-C-3 veterans educational organization, has been raising money and buying sleeping bag sets for homeless veterans and others on the streets in downtown San Diego. To date, 1,700 sets have been purchased and individually distributed by chapter veterans from all five services, who 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. The veterans are seeking donations for the cause, and report that 100 percent of all donations go to purchase gear because there are no overhead or administrative expenses. Donations are tax deductible and each donor receives a card of thanks and a receipt for tax purposes. Donations may be made online at: www.SDVFP.org or checks may be mailed to: SDVFP, 12932 Sunderland Street, Poway, CA 92064. For more information, call (858) 342-1964 or visit www. SDVFP.org

Foster youth share inspirational stories of support provided by Promises2Kids 50 students in Guardian Scholars program honored BY KRISTINA HOUCK Having missed more than a year of elementary school between foster homes, Jennica Rebelez struggled academically as a child. With the help of Promises2Kids’ Guardian Scholars program, the 25-year-old is now pursuing her doctorate degree at UC Santa Barbara and training to be a school psychologist. Promises2Kids’ Guardian Scholars program encourages former foster youth like Rebelez to pursue higher education. The program provides participating students with academic scholarships, financial aid workshops, and college planning and mentoring support. “They’ve really been with me and seen me through my hardest times of undergrad, as well as my master’s and doctorate programs,” said Rebelez, who was placed into foster care with her younger siblings after years of severe neglect. “They’ve been a constant support.” Promises2Kids celebrated the program’s 50 students, including nine recent graduates, during the Guardian Scholars Awards Reception recently at a local event.
According to Promises2Kids, more than half of the youth in foster care do not graduate from high school, and only 3 percent go on to earn a college degree. Guardian Scholars has an 85 percent success rate with more than 200 students having graduated from the program since it launched a decade ago. “I consider them all very strong individuals,” said Promises2Kids CEO Tonya Torosian. “I can’t imagine myself making it through college with some of the things I went through without my family support. Just looking at the accomplishments of some of the young individuals — it’s truly inspiring to me.” During the reception, David Odum thanked Torosian and the rest of the Promises2Kids staff for their support since he was a 19-year-old at Cuyamaca College. Odum, now 26, graduated in December 2012 with a bachelor’s in business from San Diego State University. He is an assistant manager at Sherwin-Williams and plans to one day own his own automotive shop. “They instill a sense of family in how much they care,” Odum said. “It feels like you’re important and that they care for you as a person, not as a number or statistic as
the world depicts us. “My name is David; I’m not 3,752. My name is David, and they instill that sense of importance in us.” Odum battled depression and wanted to quit school three times, but he said Promises2Kids staff encouraged him to stay in college and pursue his dreams. Torosian even allowed him to change her vehicle’s oil because she knew he wanted to work with cars, Odum added. “They support you in any way, shape or form that they can, in whatever dream you have,” Odum said. Since its inception in 1981, Promises2Kids, formerly known as Child Abuse Prevention Foundation, has distributed nearly $25 million for the care and protection of abused and neglected children, and provided services for more than 175,000 foster children in need. “You may think that you’re not good enough, but they motivate you to do your best and they don’t compare you to anybody else,” Rebelez said. “They’re here for your unique journey, and I think that’s really special about the program.” To learn more about Promises2Kids, visit www. promises2kids.org.

Carmel Valley father-sons writing team publishes second book BY KRISTINA HOUCK To share his love of fantasy with his then 5- and 7-yearold sons, Henry Herz of Carmel Valley wrote a book. He didn’t anticipate his sons to name some of the characters and suggest plotlines. “Over time, they gave me some feedback,” Henry said. “What I thought was just going to be, ‘Hey, let’s get them interested in reading,’ turned into a collaboration.” At the suggestion of family members, Henry and his sons published “Nimpentoad” in 2011. The early chapter book tells the story of Nimpentoad, who leads his fellow Niblings through the Grunwald Forest, overcoming obstacles and encountering strange creatures along the way. “That started us down a long path of finding the artist, getting the artwork done and publishing the book,” said Henry, a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators. “It’s been very well received.” Not long after “Nimpentoad” was published, Henry, Josh, 13, and Harrison, 11, began working on their second book, “Twignibble.” Aimed at second, third and fourth graders, the 1,000-word easy reader was published in June. “Twignibble” is a conservation-themed book about a sloth that helps his animal friends when faced with threats to their habitats. “A lot of kids grow up not really knowing about the environment,” said Harrison, a sixth grader at Ocean Air Elementary. “They can do a lot of things that pollute and kill a lot of animals. This is getting the word out to people that you shouldn’t pollute.” Although self-publishing was “much smoother the second time around,” Henry said it’s still a lot of work to write, illustrate, self-publish and promote a book. The Herz family is set to sign copies of “Twignibble” during a book release party on Aug. 4 at Mysterious Galaxy. In addition, Henry and his sons plan to promote the book at local bookstores, farmers markets, libraries and schools like they did with “Nimpentoad.” “We’re our own editors, art directors and promoters,” said Henry, a self-employed management consultant. “We
L-R: Josh Herz, Henry Herz and Harrison Herz. Courtesy photo have to be involved in every aspect, which is good because it started as a way to get them interested in reading, and it turned into this huge development opportunity. “They’ve gotten so many skills from this, not just writing, but meeting new people, handling money, public speaking. It’s just been a great developmental project for us all.” Despite the long hours at book signings, readings and other promotional events, Henry said he enjoys working with his sons and writing books for children. “I did it initially just to interest my boys in reading fantasy. Then I realized how much I enjoyed the storytelling,” Henry said. “I like writing children’s books. For me, the juice is getting kids excited about reading and telling fantasy and science fiction stories to spark their creativity.” Josh, an eighth grader at Carmel Valley Middle School and a parkour enthusiast, said he’s enjoyed discovering and working with artists.
“I’ve really liked working with the artists, seeing pictures and telling what I liked and didn’t like,” Josh said. “I really like the art.” Harrison, a basketball fanatic, enjoyed meeting Kareem Abdul-Jabbar while promoting “Nimpentoad” at the Orange County Children’s Book Festival. The retired professional basketball player was at the festival signing copies of his children’s book, “What Color Is My World?” Harrison said he’s also appreciated the time he has spent with his co-authors. “I get to spend a lot of
time with my dad and my brother,” said Harrison, who plays basketball for the Carmel Valley Stingrays. “It’s also fun writing it and seeing other people enjoying it.” Henry hopes his creative journey with his sons inspire more children to write, whether or not they publish their stories. “We want to encourage kids to read and we want to encourage kids to write,” Henry said. “It’s got to start somewhere. Write a short story and submit it to magazines. You never know if it will get published, but just the process of writing is great to spark creative expression and to develop a skill that will serve you at almost any career you choose.” The book release party for “Twignibble” will take place on Aug. 4, from 2-4 p.m., at Mysterious Galaxy. The independent bookstore is located at 7051 Clairemont Mesa Blvd. in San Diego. For more information about Twignibble, visit www.twignibble.com.

New graphic novel ‘Head Smash’ El Agave Restaurant and Tequileria to open at Del Mar Plaza in November to become a feature film
years of street cred under his belt working on such classic comics as “Blade” and “The Punisher.” For now, Yudin (who grew up in Russia) and Mejia (who grew up in New York) are both basking in the acclaim that “Head Smash” is garnering by critics across the nation and are hard at work trying to spread the word. Said Yudin: “So far we’ve been to comic book conventions in Philadelphia, Chicago, Miami, Houston, Detroit and New York. San Diego is obviously the biggest, though.” There’s no telling how
El Agave Restaurant and Tequileria will bring traditional “Hispanic-Mexican” cuisine, award-winning tequilas, and indigenous flavors to Del Mar Plaza. Since 1996, El Agave has been serving San Diegans their trademark “Mexican Nouvelle Cuisine” from its original location in Old Town. The new Del Mar location, El Agave’s third in San Diego, will also feature a comprehensive tequila museum stocked with over 2,000 premium tequilas. Scheduled to open in November 2013, El Agave will be open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week, and will feature a special Happy Hour menu and tequila tastings. Known for its bold, authentic flavors, El Agave’s menu is inspired by the cooking styles of ancient cultures, including the Aztecs and Mestizos. Popular menu items such as a variety of mole sauces which blend flavors native to Mexico with ingredients of Spanish and Arabic orgin, crispy chalupas, tamales, enchiladas and the infamous filet mignon in tequila with a red wine reduction sauce, will join the menu offerings at the Del Mar location. “We’ve been waiting for just the right location to expand into other popular areas of San Diego,” said Carlos Aceves, director of operations. “Del Mar Plaza couldn’t be a more perfect location in which to blend our unique menu offerings with a beautiful ocean view location.” In addition to serving authentic Hispanic-Mexican food, El Agave is equally well known for their selection of rare and premium tequilas. Housed inside the restaurant, the Tequila Museum features a collection of over 2,000 tequilas from all over the world. Included in the museum is the restaurant’s own award-winning Tequila Agave Artesenal. For tastings in the tequila museum, guests are seated amongst a variety of agave tequilas and served tastings from the featured tequila flight. For more information, and to see the lunch, dinner, wine, tequila, and Happy Hour menus, please visit www.elagave.com. El Agave will be located on the Plaza Level of Del Mar Plaza, across from Pacifica Del Mar, at 1555 Camino Del Mar. big “Head Smash” will become, but judging by past fandom for hot graphic novel properties, the sky’s the limit. “We just had the actor Bill Paxton record some really cool narration for some special trailers we put together,” said Yudin, who notes that with the graphic novel complete, now they can start on the film adaptation. Perhaps for next year’s fest, if history repeats itself, they’ll unveil the next part of the “Head Smash” saga. After all, as Yudin sums up: “Comic Con is basically a huge celebration for everyone who embraces entertainment.” For more on “Head Smash,” check out http://headsmash.net/.

BY ROB LEDONNE Last weekend’s Comic Con drew thousands from all over the world; many of them in the entertainment industry who work in publishing, film, television and other fields. Vlad Yudin and Edwin Mejia are two of the countless people who come every year to check out all the festival has to offer and even push their own project. “It’s a big event, not just for comic books but for entertainment in general,” Yudin explained before the festival from a car in the middle of the New Mexico desert on the way to San Diego. “It’s a great way to learn what’s happening in the world of entertainment and, for me, to introduce new projects.” This year, Yudin and Mejia hawked a brand new graphic novel called “Head Smash,” a post apocalyptic science fiction thriller which is turning heads — not only in San Diego, but across the world and in Hollywood as well. Mark Morgan and Michael Beckor, the producers of the “Twilight” franchise, optioned the story to turn it into a feature film and Yudin is hard at work on the movie script. “The story started out as an idea for a new superhero with a cool twist,” Yudin explains concerning the origins of “Head Smash.” “We wanted to create a very relatable superhero with a power that’s also a gift and a curse.” Yudin and Mejia always knew they wanted to turn “Head Smash” into a feature film, and figured a graphic novel was a great way to drum up interest. “It made sense for us to turn it into a graphic novel,” Yudin notes. “It’s such a visual piece.” Last year at Comic Con, they announced their intent to publish the story and since then have been working hard putting together the pieces for its release exactly one year later, this July 31. “It all took quite some time,” says Yudin, who recruited a variety of the most notable people in the world of art and graphic novels. Among them was Joe Perez, best known as Kanye West’s art director; another artist, Tim Bradstreet, has

Letters to the Editor/Opinion Importance of right to free speech and peaceful public demonstrations cannot be overstated I have a friend who, following the George Zimmerman verdict and resulting demonstrations recently, chose to lump together the thousands of peaceful protestors nationwide with the few criminals who broke the law in two cities. He feels it was up to the protestors to stop the criminal acts, but, in fact, stopping someone intent on causing physical harm or destruction of property, whether in a public gathering or in private, is the very reason we have police. George Zimmerman forgot that. I hope the rest of us won’t. This friend went on to condemn the demonstrations because sometimes this sort of thing can lead to negative or unintended consequences. But that’s true of anything and everything we do. In my opinion, this is a red herring that has suddenly gained momentum, thanks to the media. It is affecting the public’s opinion of the right to protest in general, which concerns me greatly. It concerns me because the right to gather in public, to peacefully protest injustice, to dissent, is protected under the constitution and it plays an important role in a free and democratic society. It has helped to effect positive change in our country for over 240 years even though it is absolutely true that, on occasion, there can be unintended consequences as well. I am also concerned that the right to protest is being inexorably fused and confused with the criminal acts of a very few. We do not condemn an entire football stadium full of people wildly yelling in support of one team or the other because of the overly rowdy or at times even criminal or violent behavior that is exhibited by a few for “their” team. These few are the guilty parties, not everyone rooting for the same team. This awareness should apply to public gatherings protected by the First Amendment as well. While it’s extremely worrisome to see the media and now more of the public framing and condemning public demonstrations in a negative way, most disturbing of all is that this attitude has been used by our government for the last 11 years to justify methodically chipping away at this all-important civil and constitutional right. Talk about consequences, this is the most disturbing and frightening consequence of all. The importance of preserving freedom of speech and the right to gather in public; to rally, protest, and dissent, cannot be overstated. It is one of the cornerstones in a free and democratic society. So to see public opinion turning on those who are legally standing up for their rights, is worrisome indeed. Kim Perl, Carmel Valley
Merge project should be downsized My home is very near to the undeveloped 4.11-acre lot at Carmel Mountain Road and Carmel Country Road in Carmel Valley. The developer Gary Levitt is in the planning stages of the proposed Merge project. Many of us in the neighborhood are concerned. We have signed petitions, we have sent our concerns to the developer and we have requested the project be downsized. The proposed mixed-use development is too dense. It is so dense that Gary Levitt can’t build his massive plan, with the City required parking, without an underground parking lot. The underground parking garage adds an additional safety issue. I am concerned about the potential for crime due to the parking garage. We do not want an underground parking garage this close to our homes. Originally the lot was approved for 28,000 square feet of retail, five stand-alone buildings with potential for a nice neighborhood meeting place, known as the “highland village center” (the original name which is more fitting to our neighborhood than the Merge). Mr. Levitt has purchased the property and is proposing a plan for mixed use. With all the project’s elements considered, not just the retail, it is just less than 90,000 square feet, including: •13,000 sq. ft. of retail •22,000 sq. ft. of commercial office space •10 townhomes with separate garages (approx. 20,000-plus square feet) •21 rental residences above the commercial office space (approx. 25,000 square feet) •Underground parking (undisclosed square footage) According to the original Carmel Valley Community Plan, the lot should be developed as a pedestrian-oriented neighborhood center with an open design and relevant retail for the neighbors of district 10. We want a small “highland village center,” not a commercial office and residential fortress known as the Merge that Mr. Levitt has planned. The current proposal should be developed somewhere downtown, not in our quiet bedroom community. Nowhere in Carmel Valley are there residences on top of retail. Our area was designed to be lower density with open spaces. Why do we need the additional townhomes and additional residences on top of retail? Just because he can does not mean he should. We do not want our neighborhood center to be another commercial business center we do not need. The concerns of the people in the neighborhood should be heard. Mr. Levitt talks about his rights as a property owner. What about the rights of the people of neighborhood? The proposed development will increase Mr. Levitt’s profits but it will be at the expense of the residents in district 10, who will see a decrease in property values. We are hopeful that Mr. Levitt and the Carmel Valley Planning Board will take our concerns to heart and find a compromise. Anne Marie Devine Carmel Valley
Growing problem: People are not picking up after their dogs We have an 18-month-old golden retriever and we walk him in our Carmel Valley neighborhood twice a day. We have noticed that people are not picking up after their dogs and it is becoming a real problem. Now that school is out and more of the kids are walking their dogs, the lawns and sidewalks are covered. You actually have to watch very carefully as you are walking so as not to step in the dog droppings. When we offer these kids bags, they refuse. Parents need to either talk to their kids about this or walk their dogs themselves. We are hoping that adults have more sense and cleanup after their dogs. We just got home from the park at Carmel Knolls and our dog slid and fell into a big pile of dog feces. I cannot tell you how disgusting this was. We had to take him home and bathe him. Patti Passov, Carmel Valley
The One Paseo Loop Road BY GORDON CLANTON Here is an idea to mitigate traffic impacts of the proposed One Paseo shopping center in Carmel Valley. This idea is independent of very important ongoing discussions about density and the mix of businesses. My proposal assumes that, no matter how large the final project, it will bring enormous new traffic burdens to both Del Mar Heights Road exits from I-5 and to the surface streets that border the new shopping center – and, further, that it is desirable to get as much of this new traffic as possible off of the adjacent thoroughfares as quickly as possible. Here is the proposal: Imagine a one-way clockwise loop around the perimeter of the One Paseo site, built on One Paseo property at the developer’s expense. Cars heading for the shopping center from eastbound Del Mar Heights Road would enter the loop via a new right-hand lane beginning at the end of the eastbound freeway off ramp. Cars also could enter the loop diagonally from eastbound Del Mar Heights Road and southbound El Camino Real. Once on the one-way loop, cars could exit diagonally to the right through several passages into the parking lots nearest their destinations or exit diagonally to the left to exit the center and merge with eastbound DMH Road or southbound ECR. The loop could be three lanes wide – a center lane for through traffic, a right lane for easy entry to parking, and a left lane for
re-entering adjacent surface streets. Because cars would enter and leave the loop diagonally, there would be no new traffic signals and no left turns at the entrances to and exits from the loop. The section of the loop parallel to Del Mar Heights Road could be separated from the thoroughfare by a landscaped berm running parallel to the street and the existing sidewalk. Pedestrians could enter the center from the landscaped southwest corner of DMH Road and ECR through a pedestrian tunnel under (or bridge over) the loop road. I am not planning professional. I offer these ideas for what they are worth and welcome feedback from the professionals, the developers, the opponents of the current proposal, and the general public. Just as new residential developments must pay for the roads, schools, and sewers they will need, why not require big new shopping centers to absorb onto their property the extra traffic they generate, thus minimizing traffic on adjacent public thoroughfares? Gordon Clanton teaches Sociology at San Diego State University. He welcomes comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Crossing the six-month mark Education Matters/Opinion BY SUPERVISOR DAVE ROBERTS Earlier this month, I completed my first six months in office and during that half-year, I have made strong progress in advancing reforms for mental health services, adoptions of foster children and renewable energy. I also voted in June to adopt a balanced budget which maintains strong reserves. My colleagues and I were frugal as ever with public money, but we still managed to expand service levels and create jobs. Also in June — to add transparency and additional scrutiny to Community Enhancement Grant applications — I created a board of community volunteers to review the voluminous submissions and make recommendations to me. Earlier, in April, Vice Chairwoman Dianne Jacob and I brought forward legislation calling for an audit of the county’s mental health system. We expect to see the findings of the audit at our July 30 meeting. We want to help mentally ill people who are unable to help themselves. We want to protect them, their families and the public. Accordingly, we have called for a thorough examination of Laura’s Law, which allows for the involuntary treatment of any person with a mental disorder who, as a result of that condition, presents a danger to others or to himself or herself, or is gravely disabled. Laura’s Law requires that judge to certify the need for involuntary treatment. Another program I am determined to improve is adoptions for foster children. For that initiative, I have found a strong partner in Chairman Greg Cox. We launched our Exceptional Families initiative in May, and in June, we received a unanimous vote to streamline adoption programs. We also requested that the county’s staff prepare a report that recommends legislative reforms to improve the adoption process.
‘Come pick up your camper’
Dave Roberts In another collaboration, Vice Chairwoman Jacob and I have called for updates to the county’s strategic energy plan. One of our goals is to promote guaranteed financing for property owners who wish to install solar panels or make other energy improvements to their property. Known commonly as PACE, Property Assessed Clean Energy allows property owners to pay for energy-efficiency investments over time on their property tax bills. PACE programs are available to commercial property owners in the unincorporated area. Our goal is to make PACE accessible to residential property owners. Looking ahead, community outreach and accessibility will remain as top priorities for me. My electronic newsletter – From Dave’s Desk – summarizes my activities for the week. We have published more than two-dozen of the reports to date. Constituents can follow my Facebook and Twitter posts to stay current with the meetings and events I attend. My Web address is www.supervisordaveroberts. com. For the convenience of our constituents, we have opened a full-time office in Escondido. We also keep monthly office hours in Rancho Bernardo and Del Mar. Contact us to schedule a meeting at one of those locations. Supervisor Dave Roberts represents the Third District and can be reached at (619) 531-5533.

BY MARSHA SUTTON T h e first call came at 7 p.m. Marsha Sutton Monday night. It was an automated announcement saying everything was fine and the fire was not affecting any camp activities. Fire? What fire? We had dropped off our son at his favorite camp in Idyllwild last Sunday, July 14, for a 12-day stay. This was his last year there before he aged out. After hours of planning and map-gazing – debating possible destinations, travel times, sights along the way – my husband and I decided to use those 12 days to take a driving trip throughout the Southwest, something we’ve always wanted to do. The number of hours spent planning the trip – booking and re-booking hotels, and solidifying the final itinerary – was mindboggling. But once done, we were more than ready to hit the road. Driving along the highways through the wide open spaces is something I grew up with in the Midwest. That was the era of “See the USA in your Chevrolet” – although we always traveled in Oldsmobiles. I still find it the most relaxing way to travel and love the freedom from inconvenient airline departure times, crowded airports, ridiculous security checks, claustrophobic planes and costly rental cars. That was then, last week. Today, if I ever see the inside of that car for more than 15 minutes, I’ll go crazy. All was well until two hours after leaving camp in Idyllwild, when the left rear bumper on our two-year-old Lexus popped loose, rattling enough to cause worry. We persevered until the banging got so loud that we became apprehensive that the piece of bumper might rip off and crash through another car’s windshield. In retrospect, we should have regarded this setback as an omen and returned home at once. A second inspection on the side of the freeway, as vehicles sped along inches from us at 80 miles per hour,
revealed that the bumper was flapping hard enough to begin to tear. So my husband just ripped the damn thing off and threw it in the back seat where it stayed for the duration of our Southwest adventure. Problem solved, although the car looked ready for the junkyard, with a gaping hole where the bumper used to be. Our first night was a stop-over in Sedona, just a place to sleep before heading the next day to Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico, for the next four days and nights. Never having been to Santa Fe, I considered it the highlight of the trip, and two full days of driving was going to be worth it. After settling into our hotel quarters (upgraded to a suite when the room we booked was unavailable), bliss over our spacious surroundings was interrupted by the call from camp. Quick check on the Internet revealed a growing fire out of control near Idyllwild that began less than 24 hours after camp got underway. The Mountain Fire was moving away from camp, so not to worry, the recording said. So we didn’t. The next day, although overcast with scattered showers, we plotted out a walking tour of Santa Fe that covered all the high points of this charming town. Some unexpected intestinal distress about an hour into our walk gave me the unwelcome opportunity to visit some of the nicest bathrooms in Santa Fe – La Posada Resort, Loretto Inn and Spa, La Fonda, and my favorite (or at least most frequented) – the Eldorado Hotel. Popping Imodium like M&Ms, I lasted until midafternoon when Santa Fe lost its charm and we called it a day. After staggering back to our luscious suite, we retreated, rested and nibbled on carrots and crackers for dinner (forget all that refined, delectable cuisine at renowned restaurants for which Santa Fe is famous). Later that night, we tried to ignore the gnawing feeling of dread after receiving another update from camp which advised us not to worry, even though the fire was spreading. Again overcast and chilly despite the promised
90-degree weather, the next day we decided to drive to Taos, explore the town and tour the famous Taos Pueblo. Although it was an all-day affair to drive there, spend several hours, and drive back the long scenic route, the Taos Pueblo was fascinating and memorable. It is about 1,000 years old and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. In 1992 it was named a World Heritage Site and is a living monument to what is considered to be the oldest continuously inhabited community in the country. The Taos Pueblo community is known for being one of the most private in existence. The people’s religion, language, practices, traditions and culture are kept secret. With no running water or electricity, the people of Taos Pueblo live simple lives and can trace their ancestry back to a time before the arrival of the Spanish conquerors. About 150 people live in the historic complex full-time. Friendly but somewhat guarded, residents of the pueblo go on about their lives as tours are conducted around them. Upon our return to Santa Fe later that evening, after being booted out of our suite and moved (forcibly, almost) to a regular room, another update came from camp. This time it was the same chipper voice saying everything was still fine. But then this piece of news: “The Riverside Fire Department has ordered a mandatory evacuation of camp.” Hmmm … a sense of foreboding. Again, forget the nice dinner. We hung by the phone. At 10 p.m., the next call was a stunner: “We have arrived safely at the Hemet Red Cross shelter. We would love for you to come pick up your camper.” Come pick up your camper?!?!? These were five dreaded words that no parent ever wants to hear, especially parents who were four days into a 12-day vacation and two days’ drive from the pick-up site. Home now under cloudy skies at the beach, I’m trying not to think
about how we were supposed to be white-water rafting today in Durango, Colorado, after leaving Santa Fe. Then there was to be a much anticipated visit to Mesa Verde National Park, then three days in Moab, Utah, and Arches and Canyonlands National Parks for hiking and more river rafting, capped by two nights in Palm Springs at a five-star resort with fantastic mid-week summer rates. But as John Lennon famously said, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” Two more days of driving back home, cancelling hotel reservations along the way, translated into five of six days sitting in a car. Naturally, the day we left Santa Fe was gloriously sunny and warm at last. Meanwhile, our intrepid camper spent the first night of his evacuation in a hotel with the rest of the campers whose parents couldn’t drop everything at 10 p.m. and drive to Hemet to pick them up. This included kids from New York and one from Russia. The second night he was rescued by a friend who kept him safe in Los Angeles until we could come retrieve him. We just got the news of the official all-clear for evacuees to return to Idyllwild, six days after the fire had started. However, the decision had been made earlier to cancel camp permanently. So after two smoky days, camp was over for the summer. Conflicted about who to feel more sorry for – us for an aborted vacation or our son for a disappointingly shortened camp experience – we got word that a dear friend had just been diagnosed with glioblastoma and was recovering from emergency brain surgery. Perspective. Our son is fine, no one was injured at camp, we made it back safely, rear bumper and all, and we live in beautiful and politically torrid San Diego – where the steamy news almost makes up for the chilly weather. Meanwhile, if anyone wants a ready-made, thoroughly researched 12-day driving trip through the Southwest, I can make some recommendations. — Marsha Sutton can be reached at SuttComm@san. rr.com.

BY GIDEON RUBIN Hannah Grobisen isn’t among San Diego County’s tallest high school volleyball players and she can’t jump out of the gym. But whatever the incoming junior Canyon Crest Academy middle blocker lacks in size, athleticism and raw ability, she more than makes up for with smarts, savvy, and a propensity for clutch play. Grobisen plays for the prestigious San Diego Waves club team and has started her first two years at CCA. “She has the ability to play big in big moments,” Ravens coach Ariel Haas said, summing up the intangibles that, in his estimation, make Grobisen one of the county’s top club players in her age group. “I don’t know what it is about someone’s character, but when the pressure’s on maybe she focuses more. She always plays really well during those stressful periods.” Grobisen’s coaches took note of those qualities at the end of her freshman year, when she started a San Diego Section Division III semifinal playoff against a heavily favored La Costa Canyon team. That the Ravens were swept in three games by an LCC team that went on to play in the state finals was no a big surprise. But Grobisen’s performance was. Especially considering she found herself playing opposite standout Natalie Bausback, a University of Virginiabound senior. “That experience was really challenging,” Grobisen said. “That was a really great experience for me to be able to be a starter in an LCC playoff game my freshman year. I was very intimidated because she’s such a great player and she’s going to a Division I school.” Grobisen acknowledged that the decibel levels in a packed gym did little to calm her nerves. But she showed no signs of nervousness outwardly. And Grobisen more than held her own, leading the Ravens with a .583 hitting percentage (seven kills in 12 attempts). She was the Ravens second leading kill leader in that game. “I just felt like I was David against Goliath,” she said. “It was great to be able to compete in that game.” It’s a role that Grobisen relishes. “I definitely love playing when you’re the underdog and people don’t expect to do as well as you can. It’s really nice to prove people wrong.” Grobisen’s attitude makes her a nice fit for a Ravens program that’s been proving people wrong practically since the program’s inception. The Ravens made the Division III finals last season for the second time in three years – and for the first time since graduating phenom Samantha Cash, who went on to play at Division I Pepperdine after leading CCA to its first finals appearance in 2010. CCA, which last season advanced to the Southern California Regional semifinals, was among eight teams selected to compete in the elite Open Division next year. The selection was based on the performance records of high school programs in all enrollment divisions going back five years. Grobisen said her teammates talked about what it meant to classified by the section commissioners as an elite program at a team meeting last fall. It is an especially sweet for a school known more for academics than sports, and for a program that’s existed just nine years and has fielded a varsity for seven years. “We thought it was huge honor to be moved up there,” she said. Grobisen is part of the reason they got moved up there, Haas said, noting that elite club players such as her weren’t coming to CCA in the numbers that they are now. “She’s among a good crop of young players who have continued us on our path on an elite level,” Haas said. Grobisen, who Haas believes is a potential Division I or Division II college prospect, is among at least four returnees who project to play at four-year schools. The others are setter Carly Rasmussen and opposite Caroline Lappe (incoming juniors) and incoming sophomore outside hitter Jolie Rasmussen. The Ravens graduated seven seniors, including four
Hannah Grobisen who went on to play at fouryear colleges. “In years past it would be one kid at that type of level, now we’re starting to see more of those kids,” Haas said. “With success every year brings more attention to the program and more kids wanting to come and be a part of what we’ve put together.” Grobisen’s upcoming season will be a chance to showcase her skills to scouts, Haas said. Although some of her best attributes aren’t easily measured by tape measures and stop watches, Grobisen is a solid server and excellent attacker, Haas said. Scouts also pay close attention to how top-level players perform under pressure – a quality that she’s shown herself to excel in. “I think that’s a great sign of character,” Haas said, noting the LCC playoff game her freshman year spoke volumes about what makes Grobisen the player she is. “That was kind of the moment that I think back on,” he said. “She played so well against someone who was supposed to be better than her and it didn’t matter to her, as a freshman, and as a 14-year-old.” Grobisen admits she wasn’t always able to settle herself down in pressure situations so easily. She learned how to calm herself down playing club ball in middle school, entering games mostly as a reserve with game’s on the line. “I wasn’t always the best at it,” she admits, “but I do love to compete in tough situations because it always makes it fun for me. “To be down and then to be able to come back, that’s the best feeling in the world.”

Solana Beach athlete Inaugural Relay For Life of Del Mar fundraiser set for Aug. 17 competes in World Teams needed to raise funds for Maccabiah Games in Israel help the American CanBY KRISTINA HOUCK Solana Beach athlete Elliot Cohen is among the nearly 9,000 athletes competing at the 19th World Maccabiah Games in Israel July 18-30. Athletes from 78 countries are participating in 42 sports, as well as Paralympic events, at the Jewish Olympics-style competition, which is the third largest international sporting event in the world. Elliot, 15, is a starting soccer player for Team USA juniors. “I’m excited to be in Israel and play for the U.S.,” said Elliot, an attacking center midfielder, who plays soccer for Canyon Crest Academy and San Diego Surf Soccer Club. “It’s been really fun. I’m getting to meet new friends.” The team, which includes players born in 19971998, defeated Australia 2-0 in the group’s first match after the Opening Ceremonies on July 18. Elliot gave the inspirational talk in the huddle just before kickoff. “He’s such a passionate player,” said Elliot’s mother, Carolyn Cohen. “It’s very invigorating to watch him. It’s really fun.” The high school sophomore has played soccer since he was a toddler. His father, David Cohen, played for the U.S. Open Men’s soccer team in the 1985 Maccabiah Games in Israel when he was 27 years old. David, a Solana Beach chiropractor, is currently in Israel coaching soccer and treating U.S. athletes for sports injuries. Carolyn and her daughter are traveling to Israel on July 22 to watch Elliot play and attend the Closing Ceremonies on July 30. “Elliot’s very humble about what a great soccer player is,” Carolyn said. “He’s a brilliant soccer player. He’s an integral part of
the team.” In addition to participating in sports competitions, athletes in the World Maccabiah Games tour Israel and learn about the Jewish history and culture. “It’s a great country,” Elliot said. “I’m really glad that I get to connect with my religion. “For me, it’s interesting because in California, there’s not that many Jews so it’s kind of tough to be able to connect with people about that. But here, everyone is Jewish, so we have a common connection and I can connect with other people.” Carolyn said she’s thrilled her son has an opportunity to connect with Israel and fellow Jewish athletes. “I’m just excited for Elliot to be able to have this life experience,” Carolyn said. “He will be talking to his grandchildren about this. It’s the trip of a lifetime. It’s just unbelievable.” JLTV, a 24-hour Jewish-themed TV channel, is broadcasting the World Maccabiah Games in the U.S. For more information about the international sporting event, visit www. maccabiah.com.

BY KRISTINA HOUCK Community members will come together to celebrate survivors, remember loved ones and fight against cancer during the inaugural Relay For Life of Del Mar on Aug. 17 at Del Mar Heights Elementary School. During the event, participants will walk on the track around the clock to raise funds for the American Cancer Society to support patients, caregivers and survivors in treatment and recovery. “Nobody is immune to cancer,” said Nathan Clookie, senior manager of Relay For Life. “Everybody is touched by it. Everybody has a friend, family member or co-worker who’s currently battling, battled and beat, or lost the battle.” A melanoma survivor, Clookie is organizing Relay For Life of Del Mar because there isn’t a local event and the closest relays take place in La Jolla and Encinitas. Relay For Life launched in La Jolla in 1996 and Encinitas in 2005. “We’ve done Relay For Life events all over San Diego County,” said Clookie, who has worked for the American Cancer Society since 2010. “There’s a big gap between La Jolla and Encinitas where there’s no event. We like to have an event in each community, so each community can participate, celebrate their local cancer survivors and also raise money to fight against cancer.” About a dozen volunteers formed a committee in June to plan the event. The
Relay For Life launched in La Jolla in 1996 and Encinitas in 2005. group hopes to recruit at least 15 teams and raise $15,000, Clookie said. Three teams have registered for the 24-hour event so far. “We’re looking for people to form teams with friends, family and co-workers to come out and spend the night with us and fundraise,” Clookie said. “We’re also looking for volunteers who want to get their hands in event planning and take on one of our many committee roles.” In honor of her cousin who died from cancer, Carlsbad resident Katie Newman is volunteering as a committee member and is leading the six-member Team Cabo. The 23-year-old sales representative hopes to raise at least $1,000. “It’s close to home for my family, and I just want to help however I can,” Newman said. Originally from London, Newman has lived with her late cousin’s family in Carlsbad for two years. This will be her first time participating in Relay For Life. “What I really like is that this is the first year,” Newman said. “Everybody is new to it. There is a learning curve for everybody. It’s an exciting opportunity.” While details are still being planned, community members can expect to celebrate local cancer survivors during the Survivors Lap at Relay For Life of Del Mar. Participants will also have an opportunity to decorate paper bags that will be lit at night to honor loved ones who have battled cancer, whether they have won or lost the fight. “No event is the same,” Clookie said. “We really want to build this one up to reflect Del Mar and be a place where cancer patients and their families, or families of those who have lost someone to cancer, can go and be with other people who have had similar experiences and fellowship with them.” Relay For Life of Del Mar begins at 10 a.m. on Aug. 17 at Del Mar Heights School located at 13555 Boquita Drive in Del Mar. For more information, and to donate or register online, visit www.relayforlife.org/delmarca. To inquire about volunteer opportunities, contact Clookie at 619-606-4855 or email@example.com.

Double Indemnity: Old Globe stages tale of sex, murder, betrayal
La Jolla Cultural Partners
BY DIANA SAENGER Film noir fans are in for a real treat as the Old Globe prepares to stage the San Diego premiere of “Double Indemnity,” directed by John Gould Rubin, based on the book by James M. Cain, and adapted by David Pichette and R. Hamilton Wright. “Double Indemnity,” finds Walter Huff (Michael Hayden), a Los Angeles insurance man, who while selling insurance to Herbert Nirlinger (Murphy Guyer) is roped into a dangerous situation. Herbert’s wife, Phyllis (Angel Desai), seduces Walter into murdering Herbert to collect the insurance money. Rubin — a director, producer, teacher and a former actor — has worked on almost every genre of stage production, but is a real fan of film noir. As a teacher, he said he strived to lead his students to new forms of work that is more adventurous. “I wanted to give them

are literary, but in film, there are visual demands that require the actors move in certain ways to make beats happen,” he said. Film noir is associated with stylish crime dramas popular in the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. It has specific style fundamentals — suspicious and sleazy motivations, black-and-white photography with shadowy and sharp angles, and foreboding music and sexuality. Rubin had this challenge in bringing “Double Indemnity” to the “round” Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre stage. “We have 30 scenes, and representing all of those scenes with sound, light, video, the turntable and modern theatrical devises, really attracted me,” he said. “Double Indemnity,” was a popular 1944 film starring Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray and Edward G. Robinson. It garnered seven Academy Award nominations. Rubin wants audiences to know the play is based
on the book, and is different from the film. “We’re using the original script of the play with a few changes. I presume people coming to a play based on a novel presume there will be changes to adapt it to the stage. I’m hoping that transition is so evident that when they come into the theater, it will divest them of preconceptions.” In this production, Rubin said he did want to play to style, but to the reality of the circumstances, and allow each character to analyze his or her circumstances. “Like for Phyllis; how did she descend into the kind of life she’s in and how does she psychologically engage in an act of murder?” Rubin proposed. “And what makes Walter take that step from fantasizing about — to actually committing a crime — and then taking that slide into a horrible nightmare?” Rubin’s approach to casting was to look for actors who would go at their char-
acters purely and cleanly through character analysis and not try to play a style piece. “I wanted them to let the style be a function of the way the lines dictate and the way we’re doing the play,” he said. “And also I wanted it to be really sexy, because this genre has a combination of murder and sex that I wanted to feel really palpable. I hope audiences find this version riveting and are able to identify with these characters and feel as if they’ve lived this scenario right along with them.” Phyllis (Angel Desai) and Michael (Walter Huff) form a dangerously intimate relationship in the San Diego Premiere of ‘Double Indemnity,’ based on the book by James M. Cain. Photo/Jim Cox

Japanese fare served in high style at Katsuya by Starck BY KELLEY CARLSON o attract foodies and casual diners alike, Katsuya’s San Diego location recently scaled down the size of its menu — described as “Japanese fare catered to the American palate, but with a unique concentration on San Diego tastes” — along with some of the price points and made subtle alterations to the decor. “We are beyond excited to introduce our new menu, which pairs Katsuya’s sophistication with the fun-loving community of San Diego,” Assistant General Manager Pouria Malihi said in a news release. “We want customers to feel like they can dine at Katsuya in flip-flops after a ball game or in heels and cocktail attire before a night out downtown.” Located in a 6,000-square-foot space that’s part of the Andaz Hotel, the restaurant is upbeat and chic, yet casual. Decorated by renowned designer Philippe Starck, the rooms have bold, contrasting colors, but they’re softened by the glow of candles, large Japanese lanterns and illuminated geisha images. The establishment is further enhanced by small details, such as pink and silver Maneki Neko cats. Social hour is observed in the lounge, where guests can get comfortable on loveseats or make a new acquaintance at the bar. Mirrored columns boast flat-screen TVs that broadcast athletic events.
On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at lajollalight.com Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. ■ This week’s recipe:
Katsuya’s Sauteed Shishito Peppers Another place for interaction is the sushi bar, where patrons can witness chefs preparing rolls of rice with vegetables and raw seafood. “You get the energy of the kitchen,” Sous Chef Jason Velasquez said. Seating for dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. For special occasions, there is a semi-private mezzanine with ornate mirrors on patterned red walls, shielded from inquisitive eyes by white, flowing curtains; and a private atrium with an open skylight that permits a peek into the heart of the Andaz. To ease into the dining experience, some guests sip on the new “Local Libation Cocktails” such as 6th & F, a brilliant red beverage with Akvinta Vodka, muddled
Sauteéd Shishito Peppers lychees and raspberries, pineapple juice, squeezed lemon and a splash of St. Germain. Or they may opt for one of the many wines and beers, including Japanese Sapporo and Stone Brewing Co. selections. There are also premiere sakes; the Sasaichi brewery created one especially for the restaurant titled Katsuya Sake-Victory, which incorporates water from Mount Fuji. All of the Katsuya locations (six in the United States, and another planned in Dubai) share the same base menu, a showcase of Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi’s style. For example, there’s Sauteéd Shishito Peppers (an average of one in 10 are spicy!) and a Crispy Soft-Shelled Crab that can be
dipped in tartar sauce and chili ponzu. And there’s Robata, in which skewers of vegetables, meats or seafood are grilled over special Japanese charcoal. Yet there are a handful of selections that are exclusive to the San Diego site. One is the Double Double Roll that has a bit of zing, with rice, spicy yellowtail, spicy kanikama and cucumber rolled together and topped with more yellowtail, onion ponzu and Serrano chili. Another is the Chirashi Sushi — thin slices of fish over rice with ginger and sesame. A favorite of the chefs are the new sliders, which come in four varieties: Teriyaki Portobello, Wagyu, Spicy Pork Belly and Shrimp Gratin Croquette. Possibly the most popular “newcomer” is the BOP, in which servers bring sizzling-rice hot pots to the diner’s table and then mix in sweet-soy BOP sauce with Japanese mushroom, braised short rib or pork bulgogi. Another notable dish is the tender and juicy 6-ounce Wagyu Ribeye, served over maitake mushrooms with truffle butter. For dessert, there are sweet treats such as mini crème brûlées; mochi, a confection made from pounded sticky rice and filled with ice cream in flavors such as mango and strawberry; and the Caramel Apple — warm Fuji apples and rum raisins in a phyllo dough basket, topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.

Lofty experiment part of 2013 SummerFest lineup BY DAVID L. CODDON Well known for bringing musicians and audiences together in interpersonal environments, SummerFest has a special treat in store for classical music lovers during the 2013 season that begins July 31. Two performances will be held on Aug. 9 at The Loft at UCSD, a casual space that seats about 150 on the fourth floor of the university’s Price Center East. SummerFest Music Director Cho-Liang Lin will emcee and also participate in a program of Bartok, Ives, Debussy, Villa-Lobos, Carter and Charles Wuorinen performed by guest artists including flutist Catherine Ransom Karoly, pianist Steven Lin, violinists Michelle Kim and Philippe Quint, and clarinetist Burt Hara. “The fundamental idea is to present a concert that is closer between the audience and the performer,” said Music Director Lin. “SummerFest is in principle already an intimate experience, but this one event that I am trying this summer takes away all the formalities. “The program itself is not a cotton candy kind of program. It’s all 20th Century, but each piece is short. It’s like a sampler. And I want
people to be right next to the performers. There’s a period before the concert where the musicians will be there, mingling with the audience.” The inspiration for the “Live @ The Loft” concert was in part the (Le) Poisson Rouge music and multimedia art cabaret in New York City, said Christopher Beach, president and artistic director of La Jolla Music Society, presenters of SummerFest. “They have been programming classical music in a much more intimate, casual setting,” he said. “It’s a great success. I wanted to give our audience a different way to hear classical music. The Loft is a perfect place.” Beach and Lin are equally excited about SummerFest 2013, the featured composer of which is Bach, perhaps the greatest figure of the baroque period. “There are three concerts (during the festival) based on Bach,” said Lin,
“but rather than having three concerts of all Bach — or even Bach and son — I decided to use Bach as a departure point and go further into Bach’s future and look at composers influenced by him. Every Bach program will involve some sort of lineage that gets passed down through history. The idea is not only to get an interesting look at this lineage but to enjoy the very beautiful music.” This dynamic can be experienced during the festival’s “Bach & Beyond” concerts Aug. 7, 14 and 21 at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Sherwood Auditorium in La Jolla, SummerFest’s principal venue. As usual, the SummerFest roster of guest artists is populated with notables. On Aug. 6, pianist Jonathan Biss will perform three pieces by Beethoven, with accompaniment by cellist Fred Sherry and violinist Joseph Swensen.
Beach praises Biss for his “deep musicality.” Aug. 20 brings the return to La Jolla of another pianist, 22-year-old Russian Daniil Trifonov. “We have a special relationship with him,” recounted Beach, who discovered Trifonov at St. Petersburg’s Tchaikovsky competition in 2011. “One of his very first concerts in America was in our Discovery series. He’s an old soul with this youthful passion.” At SummerFest, Trifonov will perform works by Schumann, with accompaniment by violinists Stephanie Jeong and David Chan, cellist Gary Hoffman and Richard O’Neill on viola. As for Cho-Liang Lin, “The first two concerts (of SummerFest) are very interesting for me. The opening night (‘Let’s Dance!’) is all about dance music through the ages, so we’re starting with German dances from Schubert through Stravinsky and Ravel. Most festivals tend to open with the tried and true, the war horses. It’s a calculated gamble that I hope people will find interesting and enjoyable.” Then there’s “Salieri’s Vienna” the next evening, Aug. 3. “We don’t hear Salieri’s music very much at all these days,” said Lin. “This pro-
gram is a microcosm of what Salieri would have heard in his own time in Vienna.” Antonio Salieri is known to many for being in the shadow of Mozart, but, said Lin, “Salieri was a respected musician. He taught both Schubert and Beethoven, and the works in the first half are all dedicated to Salieri.” “Salieri’s Vienna” will feature works by Salieri, Mozart, Schubert and Beethoven. “This program is the very core of chamber music,” said LJMS’s Beach. “There’s something for everyone.” SummerFest 2013 may be some classical music fans’ deepest immersion in baroque music, which Beach said is misunderstood. “A lot of people who don’t like it have the impression that it’s precious or boring,” he said. “They couldn’t be more wrong.” In fact, the evening of Aug. 13 should be anything but boring, when the Arcadian Academy conducted by Nicholas McGegan will perform works by Vivaldi, Handel, Purcell and others. “It’s our very first concert with baroque music played on period instruments,” said Lin. “It will be a new adventure for both me and for the audience.

New Cardiac Fitness and Weight Loss clinic offers Bod Pod •Th e Bod Pod is the “most technologically advanced device for measuring body fat and lean mass.” BY KAREN BILLING The only commercial Bod Pod in San Diego can be found in Del Mar. The Bod Pod, the most technologically advanced device for measuring body fat and lean mass, is one of the featured tools of Dr. Marian Holland’s new Cardiac Fitness and Weight Loss clinic off Carmel Valley Road. As seen on TV shows such as “The Biggest Loser,” patients climb aboard the space age-looking Bod Pod in form-fitting clothing and a head cap for testing that is quick and accurate — the time spent inside is the length of two 50-second measurements and results are printed within minutes. Bod Pod provides accuracy within 1-2 percent using air displacement plethysmology and is considered more accurate than underwater weighing or skin fold caliper testing. “Body Mass Index alone is not the best measure for a lot of people,” Holland said. “It can be a little bit deceiving.” Holland said that over time people can build or lose
The Bod Pod. muscle and gain or lose fat; their weight may increase or stay the same and simply stepping on a scale doesn’t tell the whole story. Holland said it’s more important to measure body composition than weight — body fat percentage can be one of the best indicators of health, giving people the whole picture of what’s going on in your body. Excess body fat increases the risk of diseases such as heart disease, type-2 diabetes, stroke and cancer, and it’s the excess that troubles Holland
Dr. Marian Holland the most. “More than one-third of Americans are overweight. It’s expected over 40 percent of Americans will be overweight by 2030. It just keeps going up and up,” Holland said. With her clinic, the board-certified internist, cardiologist and electro physiologist aims to fight the obesity epidemic and help clients with weight loss and cardiac health. Holland was a staff cardiology physician at the VA Hospital and it was her experience with one of the veterans that led her to shift her focus and open her new practice. Fine Art
The veteran worked as a janitor on her floor and he could barely breathe as he walked because he was so heavy. In the first five weeks of working with him, Holland helped him change his diet and get down from 315 pounds to 281 pounds. Where he once drank six sodas and smoked three packs of cigarettes a day, he is now down to no sodas and just a half a pack a day. “He’s my inspiration on weight loss,” Holland said, noting that while he has lost a total of 60 pounds and still has a ways to go, he is sleeping better, is happier, healthier and has found a support system he didn’t have before. “Some people just need a little help, a little attention.” At her clinic, Holland does EKG exercise and cardiopulmonary stress testing to assess exercise tolerance, as well as echo cardiology using ultrasound imaging of the heart to assess cardiac size and function. Holland is “big on fitness”— she ran cross-country during her undergraduate work at the University of | Specialty Gifts |
Illinois and has competed in all the big marathons in the country, including New York City, Boston and Chicago. At her clinic, she can do VO2 testing on either a treadmill or stationary bike to determine overall fitness, and anaerobic thresholds to help patients learn how they can exercise more efficiently and maximize weight loss. Paired with Bod Pod testing, clients can arm themselves with information they need to stay motivated and inspired to tackle weight loss and health goals. “I want to promote health and try to prevent obesity and all of the bad diseases that come with it,” Holland said. In a special offered through the end of July, clients will get their first Bod Pod measurement for $75. To learn more, visit www. wellcardio.com or call (858) 792-2395. The clinic is located at 2262 Carmel Valley Road, suite F, Del Mar, 92014. The Business Spotlight features commercial enterprises that support this newspaper.

Wranglers Square Dance Club celebrates student graduation; New classes to be held in Solana Beach, Rancho Penasquitos The Wranglers Square Dance Club announced its 40th anniversary student graduation this June, with 18 students now able to square dance at a “Plus” level. The club started on April 9, 1973 when nine couples finished square dance instruction taught by Sherm Barth. Those couples quickly recruited others and graduated the club’s first “class” of dancers in September, 1974. There has been a new Wrangler class taught every year since, and this year’s class enjoyed their new dancing skills at a graduation dance at the Rancho Bernardo Community Center Gazebo on June 22. Class members learn about 115 “calls” over a nine-month period, which qualifies them to dance at the club’s “Plus” level. Club members serve as “angels” (dancing helpers) for the students during the Wednesday night classes. A new Wrangler class will start on Sept. 11, at 7 p.m. at Rolling Hills Elementary in Rancho Penasquitos. Students who might prefer to meet on Tuesday nights can attend the Sandpipers Square Dance Club classes at the La Colonia Community Center, 715 Valley Avenue in Solana Beach. Those classes start Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. In addition to teaching classes and holding monthly dances, the Wranglers also participate in community events, and do demonstrations to bring others into the activity. The club is run by a volunteer board of officers. The current presidents are Mary Sundberg Whealdon and John Coffin. The Wranglers are an affiliate of the Palomar Square Dance Association, http://palomarsda.org More information can be found at: www.TheWranglers.org and www.Facebook.com/ WranglersSquareDanceClub

Rancho Santa Fe Foundation to move to Rancho Santa Fe Plaza The Rancho Santa Fe Foundation recently announced its move from the Union Bank Building in the Village of Rancho Santa Fe to the Rancho Santa Fe Plaza on the corner of Manchester and Rancho Santa Fe Road in Encinitas. The Foundation plans to be in its new space by early September, and will welcome the community with an Open House on Sept. 30. The Rancho Santa Fe Foundation was founded in 1981 by a group of community-minded residents who sought a more efficient and effective channel for local philanthropy. Today, it is the third largest community foundation in San Diego. “The Foundation and its donors support nonprofits throughout San Diego County, the nation and the world,” said Christy Wilson, executive director. “Our priority is to provide excellent and cost-effective stewardship of the philanthropic funds entrusted to us, and this move enables us to do that,” said Neil Hokanson, board chairman. “We are providing for the long-term, sustainable growth of the Foundation and our mission to serve others with this move to Rancho Santa Fe Plaza.” Grants from the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation have supported many nonprofit organizations in North County communities, including Interfaith Community Services, Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, San Pasqual Academy, San Diego Botanic Garden, Veterans Association of North County, CSU San Marcos Veterans Student Support Fund, REINS and Vista Community Clinic, among others. In 2012, donors with donor advised funds at the Foundation gave $1.8 million to nonprofits – 20 percent to organizations in Rancho Santa Fe; 53 percent to nonprofits in San Diego County (outside of RSF); 24 percent to organizations in the US beyond San Diego County; and 3 percent to international nonprofits. “Our strong roots in Rancho Santa Fe and North County help us understand and serve these communities,” Wilson said. “We will continue to rely on this support, and that of others throughout San Diego County, to provide the philanthropic assets necessary to support and enhance a viable region.” To learn more, visit www.rsffoundation.org.

Del Mar residentâ€™s special exhibition â€” â€˜Zandra Rhodes: Unseenâ€™ â€” launched in London BY DIANE WELCH The Fashion and Textile Museum (FTM) in Bermondsey, London brimmed over with guests who attended a VIP champagne reception on July 11, launching a special exhibition, â€œZandra Rhodes: Unseen.â€? The color-drenched show brought into clarity Rhodesâ€™ dramatic haute couture fashion career, which has spanned almost five decades. Curated by Dennis Nothdruft, the exhibition is also a celebration for the 10-year anniversary of FTM founded by Rhodes â€“ a resident of Del Mar and London â€“ in May 2003. Rhodes first bought the building â€“ which is now painted bright pink and orange â€“ in 1995 and hired leading Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta to do the remodel. Three months in development, Rhodes had to hunt out individual pieces for the exhibition, she said. Rhodesâ€™ workroom studio printed out the fabric designs that served as the backdrop for the collections and hours of footage of Rhodesâ€™ fashion shows were transferred to DVD to show at the museum. Several of Rhodesâ€™ lesser-known archived fashion creations were on display with her most recent collections and new lines of handbags, accessories, shoes and make-up. Hand-beaded dresses from the 1980s were pulled from archived trunks and private collections. Several of these designs were inspired by Rhodesâ€™ landmark trip to India; natives hand-worked the exquisite embroidery and bead work that is as fresh today as it was almost 30 years ago. Rhodesâ€™ line of punk-inspired garments from the Conceptual Chic Collection, with artfully-cut, slashed and safety-pinned details, were no less shocking than the 1977 launch which ensured Rhodesâ€™ fame as the â€œPrincess of Punk.â€? Several pieces of this collection are currently on display at New Yorkâ€™s Metropolitan Museum of Art, said
Rhodes. Videos of Rhodesâ€™ 1980 catwalk events, and vignette showcases of her conceptual â€œstyle biblesâ€? and notebooks â€“ never seen before publicly â€“ were also exhibited, along with more recent garments from Rhodesâ€™ 2012 Sketchbook Collection. At the reception, museum director Celia Joicey introduced Rhodes, flanked by fashion designer to the British royals David Sassoon and fashion jewelry designer Andrew Logan. Despite the over-sized joke scissors failing to cut the pink ribbon, the exhibition was officially opened and will run until Aug. 31. Photographer Barry Lategan, acclaimed for his fashion shots featured in Vogue, captured the eveningâ€™s event on film with his camera. The reception brought together many notable figures from Londonâ€™s vibrant fashion scene, including interior and textile designer Sue Timney, actress Fenella Fielding and fine artist Duggie Fields, who commented that the show was â€œinspired, surprising, and varied,â€? and that Rhodesâ€™ output â€œcrossed cultures, trends, and tastes with an always unique and optimistic, colorful, vision.â€? Rhodes, 72, was animated, wearing a purple two-piece satin garment, Loganâ€™s bold jewelry, and sporting her signature bubble-gum pink hair and theatrical makeup. â€œIt was wonderful to be able to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the museum with this exhibition,â€? said Rhodes. The exhibition was very well presented visually, said guest Vicky Ogden, head of accessories and footwear, Pure London. â€œThe excitement knowing that Zandra is launching her footwear and handbag range makes the journey complete.â€? Visit http://ftmlondon.org/ for information on the exhibition and the museum.

Artist offers provocative glimpse at past 70 years during August exhibit BY PAT SHERMAN As an artist, actor, screenwriter, photojournalist and former UC San Diego fencing coach, Christopher Canole has seen a lot during his 6.6 decades on Earth. Now, Canole is sharing close to 1,000 unforgettable people and images that have shaped the world during that time, as rendered by hand in pencil and charcoal during a retrospective at Pannikin Coffee & Tea in La Jolla during August (with an opening reception 4-6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3). The central focus of the installation is a series of seven 18- by 24-inch collages, each representing a decade in Canole’s life, from the 1940s through the 2000s. Each piece took about a month to complete, and includes about 130 images, chronicling everything from World War II and the birth of Rock ‘n’ Roll to the digital revolution and the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Roots as an artist While earning his undergraduate degree in physics at UCSD, Canole took an art class with John Baldessari, the revered artist who taught there, 19681970, and went on to produce many groundbreaking works, including “Brain/
If you go • 6.6 Decades: 33 Drawings by Christopher Canole • When: Aug. 1-31 (opening reception 4-6 p.m. Aug. 3) • Where: Pannikin Coffee & Tea, 7467 Girard Ave., La Jolla • Information: (858) 454-5453 or canole.com
Cloud (with Seascape and Palm Tree),” one of the public art installations in the La Jolla Community Foundation’s “Murals of La Jolla” project. During his time at UCSD, Canole honed his chops sketching iconic images such as Peter Fonda in the 1969 counterculture classic, “Easy Rider” (the dominant image in Canole’s collage of the ’60s). Canole followed Baldessari when he left UCSD to teach at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in Valencia. “That’s when my life really turned around and went in that direction,” said Canole, who would go on to
do design the exterior of the “Fortress of Solitude” in the 1978 “Superman” movie. Canole’s seven decades will be displayed linearly along the rear wall of the Pannikin, inviting people to look closely for details and subtext, such as the images of black musicians in his collage of the 1950s. The unsung African American progenitors of rock music appear to be segregated in the lower left corner of the piece, below the dominant image of Elvis Presley and a Sun Records 45-RPM. Each piece has such a dominant image. For the ’70s, it’s a yin-yang symbol blending the era’s iconic smiley face with that of President Richard Nixon. For the ’80s — a decade Canole said he found puzzling — it’s a three-dimensional Rubik’s Cube puzzle. “It became a metaphor for trying to fit everything together that was going on,” Canole said. Naturally, the dominant element in the piece representing 2000s was the World Trade Center, as seen while the towers were engulfed in smoke and flame. “I really wanted to sort of remind people that that’s going to influence us for the rest of our lives,” said
“A better way to feel better”
Above: Clockwise, l-r: Christopher Canole drawings: The 1960s; Angelina Jolie; Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama; Albert Einstein Canole, who drew the towers as seen unscathed in a photograph taken from the New Jersey Shore, with the Statue of Liberty in between. After completing the towers, he then had to destroy them with sandpaper and other artist’s tools. “That was about the most emotional that I ever got during this whole process,” he said. “Remember how much paper rained down on the street? I wanted it to physically (represent that).” About 50 of the images appear in more than one of
the collages, including Lady Liberty. “It’s not an overt visual connection because I want each decade to stand out by itself,” Canole said, noting that the person who can identify the most duplicated images will win a print representing the decade of their choice. The exhibition will also include about 33 single image drawings, including everyone from Junior Seau and Mahatma Gandhi to Peter O’Toole, Michelle Obama and the late La Jollan actor Cliff Robertson (whom Canole met while the Academy Award recipient was serving as Grand Marshal of the La Jolla Christmas
parade). He would Robertson’s close friend and personal photographer in the latter years of his life. These days, to subsidize his artistic and literary pursuits, Canole is caretaker for the home once inhabited by UCSD’s founding chancellor, the late physicist, Herb York (his widow, Sybil, still lives there). Canole can be found regularly doing sketches on the Pannikin patio, and speaking with seniors about their “marvelous lives.” “I just love sitting there and having them relate their stories to me, so at least somebody’s going to keep that going,” he said. “If I do drawings, it sort of opens the door to them being more chatty about their lives and revealing what’s going on.”

Tons of water handed out to homeless vets and volunteers at ‘Stand Down San Diego’ More than three and a quarter tons of water – actually 6,200 half-liter water bottles – were presented with this country’s thanks to over 1,000 homeless veterans (and volunteers) at “Stand Down San Diego” during the three warm days of July 12-14. The chilled bottles were handed out by 39 members and friends of the Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club during its sixth year of running the “Water Tent” at Stand Down. Active duty Marine Major David Cote, who flew in from the Pentagon to volunteer again at Stand Down, said that “the Rotary Water Tent provides a very important service to the vets every year.” Funding for the water came from the Rotary Club’s annual Bocce Tournament, and transportation for the heavy water load was provided by BSD Builders. Stand Down is an annual three-day tent city held on the athletic field of San Diego High School and staffed with approximately 3,500 volunteers who provide a wide range of assistance to the vets. It is organized by the Veterans Village of San Diego and supported by a large number of organizations, including the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. For more information, see www.vvsd.net. The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club is one of over 34,000 Rotary Clubs worldwide working toward a better world for all persons through education, mentoring, job training, microcredit funding, improved water and health, and the eradication of Polio. DMSB Rotary meets on Fridays over breakfast at the Marriott Hotel in Carmel Valley. For more information, call Richard Fogg (858-693-7556) or see www.DMSBRotary.com.

Revamped restaurant Morada now open at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe Morada offers fresh look, taste BY KAREN BILLING The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe has now opened its revamped restaurant named Morada. The new restaurant took over the old ballroom space, expanding from about 130 to 260 seats spread among the scenic front patio, a luxurious main dining area, inviting bar/ lounge and private dining rooms. Moradaâ€™s look and the food are unmistakably fresh. â€œIâ€™m ecstatic, I canâ€™t be happier with what we got,â€? said Executive Chef Todd Allison, who was gifted with everything new from a brand new kitchen down to new table linens. â€œWeâ€™re super excited about it and ready to start packing the place in.â€? After eight weeks of renovation, the restaurant opened softly on July 3. Adam Martindale, The Innâ€™s director of food and beverage who comes to Rancho Santa Fe from Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara, said that after the Fourth of July parade residents flooded in to check out the new digs. In re-imagining The Inn, the new owners tried to stick closely to their brand pillars of â€œcomfortable sophisticationâ€? and â€œmodern nostalgia.â€? The restaurantâ€™s design embodies both of those pillars, from the striking wall covered in silver-
A Morada cocktail framed black and white photographs of vintage Ranch to the studded-suede chairs that belly up to beautiful wood tables with clay pot succulents as their centerpieces. Itâ€™s a dramatically different view as you step down into the restaurant from the lobby, as glossy, espresso-colored hardwood floors replace the old ballroomâ€™s patterned carpet. â€œWhatâ€™s nice about the place now is weâ€™ve turned the bar into a really great lounge area and gathering space,â€? said Martindale, noting that they recently hosted a wedding with 170 guests who enjoyed utilizing the spot. The bar area features roomy booths decked out in gray Ikat fabric and sparkling chandeliers, as well as
crystal light fixtures that play light off the walls. A pair of dark leather chairs face a fireplace that was built into a new dividing wall that separates the main area of the restaurant from the bar/lounge. The bar/lounge opens out into the front patio of the restaurant â€” with views looking down The Innâ€™s freshly leveled and landscaped lawn into the village. New fire pits have been added to the corners of the patio. Behind the bar, Martindale is excited about the taps â€” they never had draft beers before at The Inn and now they have three taps to showcase local craft beer. Martindale said he is also proud of their wine list, which offers all California wines from Sonoma County to Temecula Valley vineyards. Martindale said they hope to feature wineries owned by Rancho Santa Fe locals and have already got a start on that goal by serving Gen 7 sparkling wine in one of their signature cocktails, the Sparkling Santa Fe. The refreshing drink features Gen7 sparkling wine, lavender-infused syrup, Hangar One vodka and fresh squeezed lime juice all garnished with a lemon twist and sprig of candied lavender. Their cocktail list also includes a watermelon margarita and The â€˜M,â€? starring Woodford Reserve bourbon, sweet vermouth, angostura

Above: Morada customers Right: The Morada bar bitters, maraschino cherries and an orange twist. The old restaurant area still has finishing touches to be done but the large room has been broken up into smaller, flexible spaces for meetings and private dinners. The library remains mostly the same and thoughts are still swirling on what the old bar will be. It remains the same right now but its future may depend on community feedback. â€œWe want people who live here to say â€˜If Iâ€™d done it myself, thatâ€™s exactly how I wouldâ€™ve done itâ€™,â€? Martindale said. A brand new ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act)-accessible ramp connects the bar and old restaurant with the new. As far as the menu, Chef Allison has placed an emphasis on fresh and local ingredients, â€œfrom farm to fork.â€? His kitchen receives several of its ingredients grown right on site at The Inn from
three gardens. One of his gardens is the most visible right off the lobby, flourishing with herbs, tomatoes, corn, peppers, melons, berries and, soon, artichokes. â€œIt shows that Iâ€™m serious about the farm to table concept, itâ€™s not just a slogan,â€? Allison said. Moradaâ€™s menu is completely new and will shift with the seasons â€” the only holdover being the Royce Salad, long a town favorite with lettuce, avocado, bacon and Parmesan ranch dressing. Breakfast options in-
clude items such as an acai berry and yogurt bowl, egg white frittata or bananas foster French toast with bananas sautĂŠed in dark rum, topped with chantilly whipped cream. Lunchtime visitors can enjoy starters such as pan seared albacore ceviche, steamed black Carlsbad mussels or baked macaroni and cheese with black truffle, speck ham and Beemster gouda. Meal options include salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, burgers and en-

amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $3,754,688.24.

The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle
you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s ofﬁce or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneﬁciary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to section 2924g of the California Civil Code.
