BY KRISTINA HOUCK After hearing mixed opinions from speakers, the Solana Beach City Council on Sept. 11 unanimously denied a proposed Eden Gardens mixed-use development project. Council members on July 10 previously sent the proposed project, which would be built at 636 Valley Ave., back to the developer, Sea Breeze Properties, because they said it was too large and not compatible with the neighborhood of Eden Gardens, also known as La Colonia. The plan proposes the construction of four structures on the 10,874-squarefoot lot. One building would include commercial space for an office or retail business on the first floor and a two-bedroom unit on the second floor. The other buildings would be threestory, three-bedroom detached townhomes, each with a first-floor garage and two levels of living space. The buildings were originally designed higher than 30 feet, with the tallest at almost 35 feet. Architects reduced the height of the proposed buildings and walls, cut grading, shifted the location of the structures, added bicycle parking and changed the color of the buildings. As now designed, the tower on the western side of the mixed-use building was reduced from 30 feet and 6 inches to 20 feet. Architects also reduced the height of the townhomes, by 3 feet for one unit and 2 feet for the other units. The original plan designated 14 parking spaces, five for the office or retail space, two for each home and a guest space. Developers now proposed guests share the office parking in the eveSee EDEN, page 6

City Council approves new sidewalks in Del Mar BY KRISTINA HOUCK Community members will soon have more places to safely walk in Del Mar, after the City Council on Sept. 16 approved nearly $3 million in sidewalk, street and drainage projects. In a 4-0 vote, council members agreed to move forward with three improvement projects along Camino del Mar in downtown and by the Beach Colony, and along Jimmy Durante Boulevard, from San Dieguito Drive to the Del Mar Plaza. Deputy Mayor Lee Haydu, who left earlier in the meeting, was absent from the vote. “The community plan talks about a pedestrian community,” said Councilman Al Corti. “This gives us the ability to have … something we haven’t had for 30 years, something that’s been a priority for 30 years, something that’s a current priority.” Staff recommended council members approve the projects because the segments along Camino del Mar, which are estimated to cost $165,000 in downtown and $963,000 by the Beach Colony, are regularly used by pedestrians. The two projects are expected to take nine months to complete. The nearly $1.8 million third project along Jimmy Durante Boulevard, which is expected to take a year to complete, will add infrastructure for pedestrian traffic between the plaza See SIDEWALKS, page 6 Sold • $1,830,000 • 3,031 sf, 4 BR, 4.5 BA • Panoramic Ocean Views

Solana Beach School District approves grade reconfigurations at district’s Carmel Valley schools BY KRISTINA HOUCK Many Carmel Valley students will transition to new campuses when Solana Ranch School in Pacific Highlands Ranch opens in fall 2014. The Solana Beach School District board on Sept. 12 approved grade reconfigurations at the district’s Carmel Valley schools, changing to transitional kindergarten to third grade, and fourth through sixth grade, instead of the current K-4 and 5-6 configurations. In a 4-0 vote with board member Jeff Busby absent, the board decided Carmel Creek School and Solana Highlands School will offer grades TK-3 and Solana Pacific School will expand to grades 4-6 starting in fall 2014. At the April 24 board meeting, district staff asked board members to consider grade reconfigurations because approximately 431 students will transfer from the three Carmel Valley schools to Solana Ranch when it opens as a K-6 school, leaving some unused classrooms. “It’s not ideal. I’d love to keep that 5-6; I love it. I voted for it. I recommended it. I really thought it was great,” said board member Debra Schade. “But I think when you look at the capacity and other options, which would include boundary lines, this is probably the best scenario and best learning environment for those three schools.” Since board members discussed grade configurations at the June 27 meeting, district staff met with a teacher and parent focus group to discuss potential changes. Superintendent Nancy Lynch said the group’s biggest concern was pedestrian and traffic safety around Solana Pacific, which is located on Townsgate Drive in Carmel Valley (behind the See GRADE, page 6

Del Mar to explore raising transient occupancy tax rate BY KRISTINA HOUCK To generate more revenue for Del Mar, the City Council on Sept. 16 gave staff the go-ahead to explore raising the city’s transient occupancy tax rate. The city collected more than $1.8 million from the transient occupancy tax, a per-night tax on tourists who stay in hotels for fewer than 30 days, in fiscal year 2012. Staff suggested the council adjust the rate from 11.5 percent to 12, 12.5 or 13 percent to collect even more funds. An increase to 12 percent would generate about $87,000 in new annual revenues for fiscal year 2014-15 based upon the adopted two-year budget and revenue projection approved by

the council on June 3. A 12.5 percent increase would generate $175,000, and a 13 percent increase would generate $261,000. Currently, neighboring Solana Beach has the highest rate in the region at 13 percent, while Lemon Grove has the lowest rate at 6 percent. Del Mar resident Jacqueline Winterer spoke in favor of increasing the tax, especially if it could help construct a new city hall. “You need new funding, new sources of funding, and a transient occupancy tax looks like a good beginning,” Winterer said. Councilman Al Corti agreed and said he was “glad this is back on the table.”

Citywide plastic bag ban headed by Sherri Lightner BY ASHLEY MACKIN District 1 City Councilmember and Council Pro Tem Sherri Lightner is leading the way toward San Diego’s reduction of single-use plastic bags at grocery stores and retail outlets. If her path is smooth, the ban could go into effect by Jan. 1, 2014. On Sept. 11, the city council’s Rules and Economic Development Committee unanimously voted to move ahead with drafting the ordinance. “San Diego must take a leadership role in limiting plastic bag use and reducing the pollution associated with it,” she said. “As we can see from other cities, the benefits are real and can be done without burdening our businesses or our most vulnerable residents.” More than 70 California municipalities have a similar ordinance, including Long Beach, Los Angeles, Oakland, Santa Cruz and Solana Beach. Lightner’s Communications Director Jill Esterbrooks explained the timeline. She said on Oct. 23, the city council’s Rules and Economic Development committee will receive a progress report and draft the ordinance. From there, a council advisory committee will review the ordinance and either make revisions or pass it along to the city council for a vote. Esterbrooks said Lightner is hopeful the ordinance will be forwarded to the council and receive an approval by the first of the year with implementation soon after, on the condition it is signed into law by whomever is mayor. However, if the signing mayor is Interim Mayor Todd Gloria, Esterbrooks said she’s confident it will be a go. “A plastic bag reduction ordinance simply makes sense, and I am grateful to Coun-

cil President Pro Tem Sherri Lightner for bringing this forward and helping me protect our environment,” Gloria said. In a press release, he promised to coordinate outreach with the city’s Environmental Services Department, stakeholders and the City Attorney’s office to identify and address any practical and legal issues before the ordinance is developed and presented to the city council for its consideration. He also said he would seek corporate sponsors to promote free reusable bag giveaways in disadvantaged communities. Among the recommendations being considered is a complete ban on plastic bags in supermarkets, drug and convenience stores. Another suggestion is to have stores charge customers a small fee (typically 10 cents) per paper bag used as an alternative, which Esterbrooks said keeps a shopper’s options open in cases where they forget to bring (or do not have) a bag. However, restaurants, nonprofits, food stamp recipients and produce and meat products would be exempt. Lightner discussed the potential ordinance at the September La Jolla Shores Association meeting, citing a report from the city’s Environmental Services Department, which stated 500 million single-use plastic bags are distributed annually in San Diego. About 3 percent of those are recycled, she said, with the bulk ending up in the trash or as pollution. Lightner pointed out that in addition to the environmental impacts, the city spends $160,000 each year in landfill cleanup costs alone — not including costs for plastic bag litter removal from streets, storm drains, parks and beaches.

Del Mar Hills Academy principal resigns, interim principal appointed BY KAREN BILLING Del Mar Hills Principal Carrie Gammel has resigned; her last day at the school was Friday, Sept. 13. The Del Mar Union School District was notified by the Newport Mesa Unified School District recently that Gammel was a final candidate for the principal position at Lincoln Elementary School and that it would be made official by the Newport board on Sept. 10. Parents and staff were notified on Friday, Sept. 6, although the board did not vote until last week (after presstime for this newspaper). “It is with a very heavy heart that she is leaving,” said Jason Romero, DMUSD assistant superintendent of human resources. Gammel had been the principal at Del Mar Hills since 2011, during which time she commuted from Corona Del Mar. “She had been commuting quite a distance every day because she loved Del Mar and her job, but an opportunity arose to work at a school 10 minutes from her home and she decided to take that opportunity,” Romero said. Romero said Gammel’s resignation caught the district by surprise as it just recently had principal vacancies at two of its schools — Sycamore Ridge and Sage Canyon. They posted the Hills position immediately and Romero said they are fortunate that due to their other two district openings they have had a lot of great candidates contact them after those other two positions had closed. “We have a good pool of candidates already so we hope to bring a candidate before the board at the Sept. 25 board meeting,” Romero said. Patty Arendt is serving as interim principal at Del Mar Hills. Arendt is a retired school administrator who most recently served as the interim principal for Sycamore Ridge School.

Del Mar Mesa board hears water purification update BY SUZANNE EVANS Citing a scant 6 inches of rain over the last year exacerbating the city’s water shortage crisis and skyrocketing prices, Public Utilities Department representatives Hooman Partow, senior civil engineer, and Mehdi Khalili, engineer, updated the Del Mar Mesa Community Plan-

ning board Sept. 12 on San Diego’s Water Purification Project. According to the city’s web site, in 2009, “the City of San Diego embarked on a demonstration project to examine the use of advanced water purification technology to provide safe and reli-

Disease prevention key goal for new director of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine BY JOE TASH As a cardiologist, Dr. Christopher Suhar can help patients with blocked arteries by inserting a small mesh tube called a stent to improve circulation, or prescribe drugs such as statins to lower their cholesterol. But his true passion is to help patients avoid the need for invasive treatments in the first place. “What I like to do is prevent those things,” said Suhar, 40, a Carmel Valley resident who was recently appointed director of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine. “Integrative medicine is a blending of Eastern and Western medicine, an understanding in medicine that the mind, the body and the spirit are closely linked and interplay with each other,” said Suhar. “I am a trained, boardcertified cardiologist. But I believe the way one lives, their lifestyle, the environment they’re in, those issues have an immense impact on their health, it’s not just about a drug or a procedure,” he said. Western medicine has its place, Suhar said, recalling an incident when his infant daughter suffered a spider bite and her life was saved by antibiotics. In many cases, though, patients are better served when their health is looked at in a broader way, considering not only their medical conditions, but their diet, exercise and stress level, he said. Techniques such as acupuncture, biofeedback, yoga and healing touch can help patients with chronic conditions ranging from heart disease and diabetes to pain, obesity and fatigue, according to Suhar. In the past, he said, both patients and the medical community were skeptical. He recalled being teased by colleagues during his car-

Dr. Christopher Suhar diology training. “Now they all refer (patients) to me,” he said, or call with questions. Patient attitudes are also changing, he said. Rather than wanting to add another pill, he said, “They want to know what they can do to have an effect on their health.” Suhar’s decision to go into medicine, and particularly integrative medicine, had much to do with his father, an architect who suffered from a variety of ailments including cancer and diabetes. His father died at 62 during Suhar’s medical residency, and Suhar agonized, wondering why the legion of medications didn’t save his life. “What pill didn’t we give him?” Suhar recalled thinking. “That was the wrong question.” “I went searching for something else,” he said, and met Dr. Mimi Guarneri, founder of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine, who became his mentor. Suhar took over as director of the center when Guarneri left earlier this year. Suhar said scientific evidence exists to demonstrate the benefits of alternative therapies. One example was a research project involving two groups of Camp Pendleton Marines suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. One group of Marines received healing touch treat-

ment, while another did not. The study found that Marines who received the treatment saw a “dramatic” reduction in symptoms, Suhar said. Another study in Singapore showed that participation in yoga reduced the incidence of atrial fibrillation, or irregular heartbeat, in a group of patients, he said. Along with its proven health benefits, the integrative approach to medicine — with its emphasis on disease prevention — will fit in well with Obamacare, the new health legislation that will be phased in this year and in 2014, Suhar said. The new healthcare rules give healthcare providers financial incentives to keep patients healthy and out of the hospital, he said. The Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine is on North Torrey Pines Road in La Jolla, next to Scripps Green Hospital. The center includes specialists in cancer and pain treatment, fatigue and cardiology, said Suhar, and offers instruction in nutrition, cooking, fitness and other areas. Suhar said he personally follows the tenets of integrative medicine by exercising regularly, including resistance and cardio training. He loves hiking, and spending time with his family, including wife Carla, an executive with Hewlett Packard, and the couple’s three children: Tyler, 5, Casey, 3, and Haley, 2. A former Boy Scout who reached the rank of Eagle, Suhar said he hopes his children will also be interested in scouting. He is also passionate about his work, and the integrative approach to medicine. “I love what I do, it’s great coming to work,” he said. “One of my goals is to spread integrative medicine practices and thoughts broadly throughout Scripps.”

TPHS grad scoring big in world of collegiate tennis BY ROB LEDONNE It’s a quiet Friday afternoon and JP Boyd is still reflecting on the previous weekend. A 2012 graduate of Torrey Pines High School, Boyd currently plays tennis for Boise State University in Idaho, and recently competed in the 2013 Lyle Pearson Labor Day Tennis Championships held at Idaho’s Sun Valley Tennis Club. “It’s mainly for the community to see the Boise State men’s team play,” Boyd explained from his dorm in Idaho. “It’s a very fun event; it went well for me.” Boyd wound up winning the Men’s Open Doubles competition, the latest in a string of successes he’s had in the world of tennis since his humble beginnings growing up in the North County. “With tennis, if you don’t start playing early you kind of miss the boat. Everyone good and really competitive has been playing for a long time,” said Boyd, who initially got into the sport thanks to his family. “My cousins were big tennis people, and at first I was only competitive with them. After awhile, I got into it and made it my passion.” Boyd says he “found his game” when he was around 14, and during his high school years played both individually and with the Torrey Pines team. Along the way, his younger brother Kalman picked up the sport as well, and, at one point, Kalman and JP were on the same team. “Unfortunately, high school tennis isn’t quite looked at by colleges, but it was a fun team bonding experience being on the Torrey Pines team. After awhile, my little brother started doing a lot better than me; he wound up having so much natural talent. Right now he’s top 10 in the country.” Upon graduation, Boyd headed for the University of San Diego and joined its team. “I was living at home for a little while and I think that wasn’t the environment I was looking for. I wanted a sportsoriented school and ended up leaving early.” After Boyd left USD, Bosie State showed an interest in recruiting him. “The first thing I responded to with Boise State was the coach, I knew him from when I was younger,” he explains. “ After that, I looked at the team, which is at a competitive, athletic school. Finally, I thought the campus was a really cool place... it was definitely kind of random but it came together great.” Boyd arrived on Boise State’s campus this past January, but due to NCAA rules he had to sit out last season since he

JP Boyd Courtesy photo was still considered a member of USD’s team. The past few months of practicing, training, and waiting led up to his grand debut at Sun Valley, and thanks to his Doubles win he’s optimistic about the coming season. “We’re planning on attending tournaments in the South, Midwest, Pacific Northwest... it’s a crazy travel schedule.” Boyd will next compete in California at San Francisco’s Battle in the Bay Classic this October, and will continue getting warmed up for Boise State’s official games, which start this winter. “We’ll continue to practice hard this fall, doing weights and cross training,” he explains looking forward to the next few months. “It’s all about getting ready to compete.”

SB water district to reach out to potential merger partners BY JOE TASH Santa Fe Irrigation District directors are open to the idea of merging with an adjacent water district to save money, but the question is whether their neighbors share that interest. Directors discussed consolidation at a workshop meeting on Thursday, Sept. 12. Following their discus-

sion, they formed an ad hoc committee of two board members, charged with contacting two neighboring water agencies to determine their interest in further exploration of consolidation. “Without an interested party to talk to us and pursue those [issues] the discussion won’t go any further,” said SFID board president

Michael Hogan after Thursday’s meeting. Hogan and director John Ingalls will seek meetings with their counterparts at the San Dieguito Water District and the Olivenhain Municipal Water District, and then report back to the full board within 60 days.

Carmel Valley man’s organization helps veterans transition into civilian life BY KRISTINA HOUCK After New York City and Los Angeles, San Diego had the third largest homeless population of any American metropolitan area in 2012, according to a report on homelessness by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. An annual one-night count in January found roughly 1,500 of the homeless in San Diego are veterans. A San Diego-based nonprofit organization is now housing veterans, helping them transition into civilian life. “We’ve got homeless veterans all over,” said Rick Collins, founder and executive director of Veterans 360. “We’ve got veterans living out of their cars. We’ve got veterans in substance abuse programs. We’ve got a lot of cure options, but we don’t have many preventive options. We want to be viewed as a preventive option.” The Carmel Valley resident launched the nonprofit organization in October 2012 after he lost four military friends, two who died in combat and two who took their own lives. Veterans 360 offers help in engagement, education, employment and healing. At the start of September, the organization began leasing a 2,100-square-foot Mira Mesa house to provide a temporary home for up to seven veterans at a time, as long as they participate in the fulltime program. “This is the demographic that’s killing themselves,” said Collins, a veteran of the British military. “They’re the ones in homeless shelters and substance abuse programs. If we can help them before they get to that point, we have a chance to change that dynamic. If not, there’s a very good chance they will end up in some sort of distress and, at worst,

At the start of September, Veterans 360 began leasing a 2,100-square-foot Mira Mesa house to provide a temporary home for up to seven veterans at a time, as long as they participate in the full-time program.

It’s amazing what 30 years of growing up can lead to.

Veterans 360 recently took veterans on an off-road adventure. Courtesy photos take their own lives.” From service activities with fellow combat veterans, to educational events to prepare veterans for future employment, Veterans 360 hosts several events each week. They work on building their resumes and getting skills training. They also participate in service projects and social activities. There are currently seven veterans in the full-time program, which requires participants to attend every event, Collins said. Two of them will reside in the rental home once it’s furnished later this month. He hopes to have at least a dozen full-time “students” and welcomes many others to attend the organization’s events. The problem is finding program participants, Collins said. “We know they’re out there and they’re out there in the thousands. We just can’t get them to commit to the program for whatever reason,” Collins said. “We’ve got a good program to help these young men and women. We just don’t have the young men and women. “If you see these veterans, tell them to reach out for support, even if it’s not us. Asking for support and accepting support is not a sign of weakness or an inability to cope. It’s a sign of strength.” For more information, visit www.vets360.org.

2013. The 30th birthday of Carmel Valley. What started as some fresh new neighborhoods east of Del Mar has grown and become one of the best, most desirable places to live and work in all of San Diego. How do we mark the occasion? With a new community jewel – a stylish, mixed-use landmark

Canyon Crest Academy dedicates new track on Sept. 27

as exceptional as Carmel Valley itself. That’s worth

The new track at Canyon Crest Academy will be dedicated at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3:15 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27. Funded by Proposition AA, Phase 1 of the work, the turf field and track, is now complete. The girls’ varsity field hockey team will take the field vs. San Dieguito Academy in the Academy Cup at 3:45 p.m. Speakers at this celebration are scheduled to include Eric Dill, associate superintendent, business services, SDUHSD; Karen Dillen, CCA athletics board VP, member of the SDUHSD board’ and Jeff Copeland, athletic director and assistant principal of CCA. “We are extremely excited about the completion of our new turf field and track,” said Copeland. “This is something that many at CCA have been waiting to see for a long time, so we are absolutely thrilled with our new athletic facilities. I know our athletes are chomping at the bit to have access to their new turf field and track.” The second phase of the project will start in mid-October, 2013 and continue through the year. Phase 2 includes the stadium, concession stand and practice fields as well as game fields for JV and varsity baseball and softball. The stadium, when complete, will also include a public art installation, which will provide opportunity for major donors, through the Foundation, to have their names memorialized. Additional information about the projects funded by Proposition AA may be found at http://www.sduhsd.net/index.html.

TAX continued from page 1 “I’m in support of raising the TOT,� Corti said. “I think we have other priorities and things that we want to accomplish in the city. To not do that, we’re leaving money on the table. I think it makes us competitive with Solana Beach.� In November 2008, Del Mar voters approved an increase in the transient occupancy tax rate from 10.5 percent to 13 percent. Rather than collecting the full increase, however, the council allowed Del Mar hotels to create a Tourism Business Improvement District that imposed a 1 percent room rate fee on guests to promote the city, which resulted in a 12.5 percent assessment on hotel bills. Mayor Terry Sinnott said he appreciated staff exploring revenue-generating ideas, but he was hesitant to raise rates. “I’m glad we’re looking at this, but I’m a little worried that we raise the rates,�

Sinnott said. “I’m looking at not only the TOT, but the TBID at the same time — the total rate. That would put us, I think, not as competitive as we need to be.� After obtaining feedback from local hotel and motel operators, city staff is expected to return in October with a resolution.

Staff also recommended the council consider the construction of sidewalks along Camino del Mar, from Ninth Street to Fourth Street, and along Camino del Mar, from Fourth Street to Carmel Valley Road, at a later date. Those two projects would cost an additional $1.3 million. “Even though I know they’re important to the community, we have alternatives for pedestrians to access through those areas where we really don’t in this,� said City Manager Scott Huth, regarding the

project along Jimmy Durante Boulevard. Although Mayor Terry Sinnott voted in favor of the three projects, he said he was disappointed the other two were not moving at this time. He and other council members suggested staff research grants to fund the other projects. “I’d like to see that end of town and some of those sidewalks as well, but it’s understandable that this is where our heavy pedestrian usage is, and this makes a heck of a lot of sense,� Sinnott said. About $2 million in SANDAG TransNet bond funds and $1 million from the city’s capital improvement fund and general fund contingency will fund the three projects. The capital improvement fund currently has a balance of $650,000, and the general fund contingency, or year-end budget savings, will provide the remaining $350,000. “It seems to me that we can afford it,� Corti said. “Financing is available; these are historic rates. I think we would be remiss if we didn’t move forward.�

In fear of changing the historic neighborhood, nine community members argued against the project. “I’m having a hard time looking at this picture and seeing how this fits into La Colonia,â€? said Lisa Montes, whose family moved to Eden Gardens in 1927. “This, to me, does not fit into La Colonia.

Longtime Eden Gardens resident Sylvia Aspeytia added, “We’re getting squeezed out of our own hometown with all these buildings and businesses coming up. That’s not fair.

Tarri Baldwin, president of the Solana Beach Teachers Association, said she didn’t receive any negative feedback from teachers regarding the potential grade changes. “They don’t care either way,� Baldwin said. “They figure if it’s going to be done, this is the year to do it because not only will it be a change between configurations, there’s a lot of people that are changing to the new school and it looks like it’s going to be a huge upheaval for most of us in Carmel Valley anyway. I think everyone is comfortable with it as long as they get to be with their team and they get some input into how things are going to look in the future.� Although board members were initially hesitant about reconfiguring grades, they agreed making Solana Pacific a grades 4-6 school would be the best way to utilize the district’s assets and be more consistent with other schools in the district. “Boundaries and school reconfiguration are very, very, very difficult decisions,� Lynch said. “I appreciate you carefully thinking about all aspects to make that decision.�

To Your Health: Top 10 health concerns of Baby Boomers BY WILFREDO ABESAMIS, M.D., SCRIPPS HEALTH As the first wave of “Baby Boomers” reaches retirement age and becomes eligible for Medicare, attention is being drawn to the health concerns that seem most prevalent among this generation. About 76 million people were born during the Baby Boom years, which range from 1946 to 1964. Now in their 50s and 60s, Boomers are not only dealing with health issues such as diabetes and heart disease that are common to all adults, but also problems related to aging. Following are the top 10 health concerns of the Baby Boom generation: 1. Type 2 diabetes According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 2011 the percentage of diagnosed type 2 diabetes among people aged 65-74 was more than 13 times that of people younger than 45 years of age. Diabetes increases the risk of serious health problems such as high blood pressure, vision loss, kidney disease, nerve damage, foot problems, amputation and cardiovascular disease. People with diabetes are two to four times more likely to have heart disease or a stroke. Obesity is one of the leading risk factors for diabetes. With lifestyle changes and medical treatment, diabetes and its associated risks can be managed. 2. Cardiovascular Disease Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women over age 60, and after age 45, the risk of developing it increases significantly. Coronary artery disease, in which the arteries that deliver blood to the heart become narrowed or blocked, is the most common type of heart disease and a main cause of heart attacks. In the U.S., about one in three adults has high blood pressure. The higher the pressure, the greater the risk or serious cardiovascular problems; with each 20mmHg increase in systolic blood pressure and 10 mmHg diastolic, the risk of stroke and heart attack doubles. After age 50, a systolic blood pressure above 140 mmHg is a greater risk factor for stroke and heart disease than diastolic blood pressure. You can help can lower your heart disease risk by avoiding tobacco use, controlling blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and maintaining a healthy weight through a low-salt, low-fat diet and plenty of exercise. If you’re between ages 45 and 79, ask your doctor if you would benefit from taking aspirin to lower your risk of heart attack. 3. Cancer Cancer is the second leading cause of death among people age 65 and older. Aging brings an increased risk of several types of cancer, including lung, skin colon, breast and prostate cancer. The link between lung cancer and tobacco use wasn’t fully recognized until the 1960s, when the first groups of Boomers were teens and young adults, and many in this generation smoked cigarettes for decades. Quitting smoking and avoiding secondhand smoke can help reduce the risk for developing lung cancer. Regular screenings for skin, colon, breast and prostate cancer can catch these dis-

eases early while they are still highly treatable. 4. Depression Depression affects more than 6.5 million Americans aged 65 or older. Many have struggled with depression throughout their lives, although some may experience it for the first time later in life. Often, symptoms are mistaken for other conditions such as dementia, or accepted as a normal part of aging (which it is not). In fact, late-life depression may increases risk for medical illness and cognitive decline. Research has shown that treatment is effective and may even lead to positive changes in brain chemistry. 5. Eye Problems It’s inevitable: If you live long enough, you will develop cataracts. Cataracts affect nearly 20.5 million Americans age 40 and older, and by age 80, more than half of all Americans have them. Fortunately, advancements in research and technology have improved the precision and safety of cataract surgery, resulting in faster surgeries, easier and shorter recoveries, and in some cases, better vision than before surgery. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in people over age 55. It is a progressive disease; at first, vision loss may be barely perceptible. As it advances, nearly all central vision may be lost. However, since it doesn’t affect peripheral vision, complete vision loss is rare. With treatment, the progression of the disease may be stopped or slowed. Annual eye exams are important to help identify cataracts, macular degeneration and other vision problems in their earliest stages. 6. Alzheimer’s Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. While the majority of people with Alzheimer’s are age 65 and older, up to 5 percent begin to experience symptoms in their 50s or even their 40s. This is known as early-onset Alzheimer’s, and it is becoming more prevalent. The highest risk of death from the disease is in people age 65 or older, and the death rate increases with age. According to Alzheimer’s Association, growing evidence suggests a close link between brain health and overall health of the heart and blood vessels. Since the brain receives nutrients and oxygen from blood, a healthy cardiovascular system helps to ensure that plenty of nutrient-rich blood reaches the brain. 7. Arthritis and Joint Replacement When the cartilage that cushions your bones at the joints and allows them to glide smoothly over each other begins to break down and wear away, the bones begin to rub

together. The resulting pain, swelling and stiffness is called osteoarthritis. While it is a normal part of aging, it can also be caused by physical activity over a long period of time— and many Boomers are physically active. Treatment ranges from pain medications to joint replacement. 8. Osteoporosis After age 50, as many as half of all women will break a bone due to osteoporosis. However, it’s not just a woman’s disease. By age 65 or 70, men and women lose bone mass at the same rate and have a decrease in the amount of calcium their bones absorb. Tobacco and alcohol use earlier in life can increase risk, as can being underweight. Talk to your doctor about calcium supplements and other treatments that can help prevent osteoporosis. 9. Flu/Pneumonia Influenza and pneumonia and are among the top 10 causes of death for older adults. Vaccinations are no widely available for both diseases and are usually covered by insur-

The British are coming! The British are coming! The British Invasion was a social phenomenon during the mid-1960s when rock and pop music groups from the United Kingdom, and all things British, from Burberry plaid and Mary Poppins to secret agent 007 movies, became popular in the United States and then the world. “Mod” fashions, such as the mini skirt from “Swinging London” designers such as Mary Quant and worn by early supermodels Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton and other models, exploded with worldwide popularity. Inspired by this iconic era, the San Diego Del Norte Chapter of National Charity League, Class of 2016, gathered for a photo shoot, at the lovely residence and gardens of Heather and Mark Scherer in Fairbanks Ranch, to promote their upcoming UK-themed fashion show, “British Invasion.” The show will be held at La Jolla’s Hyatt Aventine grand ballroom on Oct. 27, giving the girls time to practice runway modeling, posture, grooming and style tips to prepare for the show. The annual Fashion Show is a highlight for NCL 10th graders, and will be attended by family, friends and the entire San Diego Del Norte Chapter for an afternoon of socializing, including a spectacular raffle, beautiful floral centerpieces, luncheon and modeling that showcases a variety of the most trendy and fashionable local boutiques and stores. The co-chairs for this event are NCL Patronesses, Noemi Ashline and Heather Scherer. The National Charity League fosters mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.

Duo joins forces to combat ovarian cancer BY LINDA HUTCHISON Although September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, two San Diego women are working hard to raise awareness of the disease every month of the year. They approach it from different directions and experiences — one, Joan Wyllie, is a five-year ovarian cancer survivor and the other, Kelly Bethel, M.D., is a researcher and pathologist at Scripps Clinic. Wyllie’s organization, Nine Girls Ask for a Cure for Ovarian Cancer, is helping fund a new study of ovarian cancer spearheaded by Dr. Bethel. Their common goal is to learn about how ovarian cancer evolves, which could lead to earlier detection and treatment. The study has already enrolled 20 women who have or have had ovarian cancer and is looking for 20 more. Currently, ovarian cancer is one of the most difficult forms of cancer to diagnose. There are no reliable screening tests and few symptoms. As a result, the disease is often not caught until its late stages when survival rates are as low as 40 percent. This makes ovarian cancer the fifth leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women and the deadliest of gynecological cancers, according to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance. If ovarian cancer is caught early enough, however, survival rates can increase to 90 percent. Overall, the mortality rates for ovarian cancer have not improved in the 40 years since the War on Cancer was declared. Each year, approximately 14,000 women in the United States die of the disease. By contrast, the mortality rates for other forms have cancer have improved due in part to earlier detection. Statistics like these bring out the fighting spirit in Wyllie and Bethel. In fact, when Wyllie was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer in February 2008, she reacted not with fear but with determination to learn all she could about the disease. She had been feeling ill for several months and saw no less than nine doctors, who incorrectly told her she had everything from stomach upsets to psychological problems. She finally insisted on laparoscopic (minimally invasive) exploratory surgery and received the dreadful diagnosis – Stage 3C-4 ovarian cancer. She then endured seven hours of surgery fol-

The nine are her three daughters, her six granddaughters and herself. “I’ve always been an entrepreneur,� Wyllie said. Raised on a dairy farm in the South Bay area, Wyllie and her husband are both realtors and ran a restaurant, Tomatoes, in Bonita for 10 years. In the five years since starting Nine Girls Ask, Wyllie has maintained the No Evidence of Disease (NED) state and has found her passion. “Our most important purpose is to raise funds and awareness,� she said. The group holds an annual fundraising dinner (the one planned for Sept. 14 is already sold out with 600 guests). In addition, the group offers one-on-one counseling and sharing of information. “I am always doing research, I want to learn everything about the latest studies and give women hope, let them know they have options, that they can be a partner in their own treatment,� she said.

Tests to Request: Annual pelvic/rectal exam Transvaginal sonogram CA-125 blood test (measures cancer antigen 125, a protein that can be elevated in patients with certain types of cancers) As a Scripps Clinic pathologist working on several cancer research studies, Dr. Bethel said she was aware of Wyllie’s organization and applied for funding support. With two fellow researchers – Peter Kuhn, a physicist at The Scripps Research Institute and Jim Hicks, a molecular biologist at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York – she had a specific focus in mind for a new study. The group had already been working with a gynecological surgeon looking at and evaluating cells of women first diagnosed with cancer. Now, with a more sophisticated, laser-enabled digital microscope and software algorithm developed by Kuhn, Dr. Bethel and her co-researchers can more closely analyze circulating tumor cells in the blood stream.

Blogger, playwright, ex-judge Lee Sarokin brings new script to North Coast Rep BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT H. Lee Sarokin’s 84-year-long life has been rich in incidents, but what he is best known for took place in 1985, when, as a U.S. District Court judge in New Jersey, he reversed the 1967 murder conviction of Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, concluding that Carter did not get a fair trial. The earlier decision, he wrote, was “predicated upon an appeal to racism rather than reason, and concealment rather than disclosure.” In case you don’t know the Bob Dylan song, or the movie Denzel Washington starred in, Rubin Carter was a middleweight boxer arrested for a triple homicide in a New Jersey bar. There were inconsistencies in the witnesses’ testimony; the only sure thing was: the killer was black, as is Carter. Previous appeals had failed, but Sarokin’s decision held, and every year on the anniversary of his release, Carter phones Sarokin to thank him. Sarokin, a Jersey boy who went on to Dartmouth and Harvard Law School, has been living in Rancho Santa Fe since 1996, the year he resigned from the bench. After 25 years as a trial lawyer and 17 years as a judge, he was not pleased with the development of a political climate in which, as he wrote at the time, “enforcement of Constitutional rights is equated with being soft on crime and indeed, even causing it.” Sarokin is, above all, a believer in the Constitution. Judges, he maintains, are supposed to carry out the law. His mission, to ensure due process, often found him ruling on the side of the underdogs. In the case he calls his most important, he ruled that warning labels on cigarette packages were not enough to keep tobacco companies from being liable to criminal charges and punitive damages, and forced them to turn over documents that provided the basis for subsequent suits. “The tobacco industry may be the king of concealment and disinformation,” he wrote. His retirement did not mean abandoning the law. For years, he did arbitration and mediation, and was Distin-

“They’ve featured 98 percent of my pieces, and I get feedback, which I love,” he said. He responds to the feedback, too, as long as it’s polite. Sarokin has always enjoyed writing; it’s in his genes: His father was a newspaper writer, and his son writes for ESPN. In 2011, he wrote his first courtroom drama, “Who is the Enemy?” The play, about an innocent terrorist suspect wrongly imprisoned, had readings at San Diego’s Ion Theater, and in Toronto. “I’d seen a lot of plays I didn’t like,” he said. “And I thought, instead of just griping, maybe I should take a crack at writing one myself.” He discovered he really loved it. “I’ve had a very active and happy life, but playwriting is such fun for me,” he said. “It’s a thrill to go in and hear your words spoken by actors.” So one play led to another: ”The Rape of the Chambermaid,” based on the case of a diplomat sued by a hotel maid for attempted rape, had a reading last April at North Coast Repertory Theatre in Solana Beach. And now, on Sept. 23, there’s a reading of Sarokin’s latest, “The Retaliation Defense,” about what happens after a student whose family was killed by a drone strike commits an act of terrorism. The play deals with the effect of money and politics on our judicial system, and whether or not revenge ever justifies murder. See PLAYWRIGHT, page 20

Teen Volunteers in Action welcomes new year and Sudanese American Youth Center founder The founding SD1 Chapter of Teen Volunteers in Action held its yearly “Kick-Off” event on Sept. 8 at the Encinitas Community Center. The event marked the beginning of the organization’s 13th year of service to the San Diego community. Annie Johnson, VP of philanthropy, is looking forward to an exciting year with the generous TVIA families. “We have our many returning philanthropies, such as Saint Vincent De Paul, The Community Resource Center, The Herrick Center and San Elijo Lagoon, as well as an exciting new event, ArtWalk San Diego,” Johnson said 2013-2014 Chapter President, Susan Lyon, stated, “I love that now there’s increasing scientific evidence to back up the fact that service, helping others, actually makes people happy. That’s always been true for our family, so I look forward to another year of involvement in the community while hopefully inspiring some of the teens to continue their service into college and adulthood.”

This year’s Kick-Off event included an inspiring presentation by Wai John Wai, the founder of the Sudanese American Youth Center in San Diego, a nonprofit organization based in the San Diego area focusing on mentoring Sudanese youth on how to become successful in the United States and still maintain the Sudanese cultural identity and value. TVIA families also held a donation collection for the North County Solutions for Change Holiday Party that included gift cards, calendars, CDs, DVDs, movie tickets, and personal items. Members celebrated last year’s total of over 2,500 teen service hours. Serving the north coastal communities of Del Mar, Carmel Valley, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, Encinitas and Carlsbad, Teen Volunteers in Action is an organization of young men, grades 7-12, committed to developing community leaders through a structured program of volunteerism, philanthropy and personal growth.

La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology researchers focus on preventing disease through a better understanding of the immune system BY KRISTINA HOUCK About 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s 1 in every 4 deaths. Researchers at La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology are focused on increasing our understanding of the immune system to prevent disease, like heart disease, and develop vaccines, treatments and cures. From chronic, severe autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis and type 1 diabetes, to immune system malfunctions underlying cancer and heart disease, the immune system is at the root of many diseases, said Stephen Wilson, Ph.D., Institute executive vice president and chief technology officer. “We tend to think of diabetes as pancreatic disease, multiple sclerosis as nervous disease, coronary artery disease as heart disease and Alzheimer’s as brain disease. These are actually inflammatory diseases. It’s your immune system,” said Wilson, a Carmel Valley resident who became an immunologist after learning his uncle’s fatal heart attack stemmed from a lifelong battle with diabetes. “You don’t have coronary artery disease because you have a bad heart; you have it because you’ve got inflammation in your heart.” Founded in 1988, the Institute has about 350 employees, including a research staff of more than 150 Ph.D.s and M.D.s from around the world. The biomedical research organization houses 22 independent laboratories at its 145,000-square-foot building, which was constructed in 2006 and is located on UC San Diego’s Health Sciences Campus near the Moores Cancer Center.

Mitchell Kronenberg, Ph.D. Stephen Wilson, Ph.D. In the last decade, the Institute has nearly doubled in size, said Mitchell Kronenberg, Ph.D., Institute president and chief scientific officer. “Under my 10 years here as president, we’ve built the strength and diversity of the faculty, the people who run the labs,” said Kronenberg, a Del Mar resident who has worked at the Institute for 16 years. “We’ve almost doubled the size of the number of labs and we’ve greatly diversified the skill set. There are people doing different kinds of research, all related to the immune system.” Still not as large as many of its scientific peers, the Institute’s size is like a “Goldilocks zone,” Wilson said. “We spend a lot of time thinking how everyone at the Institute contributes and what we can do,” Wilson said. “We’re big enough to have resources, but we’re small enough to remember people’s first name.” The Institute was recently named the No. 1 best place to work in the worldwide academic research community, according to survey results announced by “The Scientist Magazine.” La Jolla-based Scripps Institution of Oceanography ranked No. 8.

“Employee satisfaction is a true value here,” Kronenberg said. “We want people to feel that working here is contributing to something really important.” Since the founding of the Institute, its scientists have published more than 1,000 scholarly papers in scientific journals, which resulted in numerous patents for discoveries that may yield clinical applications. Several drug candidates are currently in various stages of clinical trials, including Lexiscan, a drug already used for diagnosing heart disease, which researchers discovered might reduce the attacks sickle cell patients suffer. In addition, the Institute in 2010 developed San Diego’s first center for RNAi screening, a breakthrough genomics technology that enables scientists to rapidly turn off any one or a combination of the 25,000 human genes to determine which biological functions these genes control. In 2003, the Institute established the Immune Epitope Database, the world’s largest collection of scientific data on how the immune system responds to a wide range of infectious diseases, autoimmune disorders, allergies and other immune-mediated diseases. Kronenberg said one of

La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology, biomedical research organization, houses 22 independent laboratories at its 145,000-square-foot building, which was constructed in 2006 and is located on UC San Diego’s Health Sciences Campus near the Moores Cancer Center. his goals as president of the organization is to increase the community’s awareness of the Institute and its work. “San Diego is a powerhouse of research, but what we do is different. We focus on the immune system,” Kronenberg said. “I think the public doesn’t realize how the immune system contributes, not only on a daily basis to your health, but to so many different diseases when it goes wrong.” Kronenberg plans to recruit three more labs to study human genetics and how the human genome relates to disease, as well as take advantage of new technologies to better understand DNA sequencing. “If we do our job and communicate with the general public, they will learn it’s not a million years away to be able deal with a lot of diseases,” Wilson said. “We know the cause. We even have ideas as to how to attack the treatment of it. We just have to figure out what is really going on with the immune system.” For more information about the Institute, visit www.liai.org.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

Fletcher Cove Community Center: How did we get into this mess? City staff refers to the Fletcher Cove Community Center (FCCC) controversy as “the Mess.” How did we get into this mess? Let’s recap: June 2013. After two years of endless meetings, the rental of the FCCC was placed on the agenda for the June 12 Council meeting for final resolution. At the start of the meeting, two councilmen declared they sided with the neighbors and were against serving alcohol in the center. Nevertheless, it appeared Council was on the verge of a compromise when a third councilman reversed field and announced he also was against any provision that allowed alcohol. In total gridlock, rather than table the item, Council decided not to take any action and subsequently announced the matter would not be brought back for discussion. This meant the center would not be rented for any function. Stunned, a group of citizens decided that since Council could not make a decision, they would submit the matter to the voters in the form of an Initiative. July 2013. At the July 12 council meeting, Tom Golich, representing a group called the Friends of the FCCC, announced that as of that morning the Friends submitted the formal paperwork to circulate a petition. Mr. Golich submitted a copy of the petition that has provisions that Special Event permits shall be limited to no more than two weekend days, rental fees shall be nominal and that alcoholic beverage rules for beer and wine, noise restrictions and occupancy shall be per existing provisions of the Municipal Code. At that point the period of negotiation was closed since by law, no modifications can be made to the Initiative. In the first week of circulating petitions, over 1,000 signatures were obtained. August 2013. In a special meeting on Aug. 7, Council announced that despite previous statements they would review the issue again. Tom Golich urged Council to adopt the Initiative rather than the measures they were considering. Nevertheless, Council proceeded to compile a list of provisions including restricting events to two a month, restricting wine and beer to two glasses per person, stating cars should not be parked on neighboring streets, restricting the types of instruments that can be used in a band plus eight more restrictions. Council announced their plan to incorporate these provisions into an ordinance at the next Council meeting. This list provided a stark contrast to the Initiative with its limited number of provisions. Subsequent to the meeting, petition circulators noted that Council now was willing to open the center for use for special events but with a dozen restrictions. The petition gatherers encountered no loss in enthusiasm for the Initiative and gathered another 1,000 signatures. On Aug. 27 the petitions formally were submitted to the City Clerk to be forwarded to the Registrar of Voters (ROV) for signature verification. On Aug. 28 Council formally adopted into ordinance form, the dozen restrictions discussed in the Aug. 7 meeting. September 2013. Within the next few weeks the ROV will certify the results of the petition. Council who created “the mess” by their formal decision to take no action on June 12, now will determine the outcome of the matter. By law, Council must decide to adopt the Initiative without any modifications or set a date for an election. Should they adopt the Initiative, it will make their Aug. 28 ordinance null and void and limit their ability to impose restrictions on the center’s use beyond those in existing law. Should they opt to set a date for an election, as that date will not fall in the window for the June primary, it will require a special election costing $200,000-plus. If the voters approve the Initiative, again it will override the Aug. 28 ordinance and limit Council’s ability to impose restrictions beyond those in the Initiative and the Municipal Code. If the voters reject the Initiative, the Aug. 28 ordinance will continue to be in effect and Council has full powers to amend or repeal that ordinance. Question: Is spending $200,000-plus warranted to provide Council the authority to micromanage the rental process? If you decide no, tell council members not to spend $200,000-plus to hold a special election. Dick Freeland Solana Beach

NIMBYs and the Fletcher Cove Community Center In all the sound and fury surrounding the Fletcher Cove Community Center usage, one group stands out as deserving our sympathy. That group is the Solana Beach City Council whose members are caught between the grindstones of the NIMBYs and the city residents who had expected to see a fairly robust usage of the renovated and newly beautiful FCCC. We need to remember that our Councilmembers have been largely responsible for the current beauty and desirability of this entire community, through an active and engaged feeling of responsibility for, and action on behalf of, the residents. That said, I personally think the Council has bent over too far backward to appease the vociferous group of NIMBYs who don’t want to see any increased usage. The current policy is hailed by the NIMBYs as a reasonable compromise, but it looks otherwise to me. One wedding or celebration every other weekend? That’s as close to non-usage as it gets. Fears of drunken guests roaming the area or driving around the streets? We have, and have always had, the Sheriff’s Office and the ABC to deal with that (I’d like to ask how the NIMBYs deal with the local full-time, full-service bars in the vicinity. Maybe we need to shut them down!). A hundred guests, twice every weekend, with blaring music each time? That’s not envisioned by anyone except the NIMBYs. Let’s let our Fire Marshal do his job for occupancy limits, and let the current ABC and noise regulations already in place do our policing instead of using drink-counters and noise-meter maids. There’s no need for special voting if we can only adopt these common-sense, existing regulations. To you homeowners near the FCCC: it isn’t as if you bought your homes with no knowledge that a Community Center was nearby. It’s been there since 1945. And if you’re worried about noise problems of 15 to 20 years ago, you’ll be happy to know that times have changed for the better. Let’s don’t be like the homeowners who move next to the airport and then complain when the runways are actually used for the greater public good. Richard Moore Solana Beach LETTERS POLICY: Topical letters to the editor are encouraged. Submissions should include a full name, address, e-mail address (if available) and a telephone number for verification purposes. We do not publish anonymous letters and there are length limits.

Doing what’s best for our children In last week’s “Education Matters” column Marsha Sutton writes, “The research overwhelmingly shows that later start times for high school students unquestionably improves academic achievement and mental outlook while decreasing behavioral problems and delinquency... Until a majority of parents demand that start times be changed so teens can sleep later – and until school board members find the courage to stand up to adults in the system and the sports-obsessed and act on behalf of what’s best for students – this simple approach that would improve student health and increase academic success will never be implemented.” The entire piece is informative and powerful; something every parent should read. Once again Ms. Sutton manages to shine a bright light directly on a shadow we have allowed our children to live under for far too long. Kim Perl Carmel Valley

Opportunity is here to eliminate the need for horns As the repair to the North Torrey Pines Highway bridge over the tracks nears completion I am wondering if the temporary fences that have been installed to stop pedestrians will be left in place. As I recall, the trains began blowing their horns years ago when people would unsafely cross the tracks to gain beach access. This access was from the North Torrey Pines Beach parking lot and North Torrey Pines Road. If the fences were left in place or new fences installed the pedestrian traffic would not be a problem. This would eliminate the horns, improve safety and give us all silence. During the recent construction the trains would sound their horns to alert the work crews. This was acceptable but we now have an opportunity to stop the pedestrian traffic and eliminate the need for horns. Kurt A. Schlegel Del Mar

DM City Council should keep residents informed Per the Sept. 3 Del Mar City Council closed session agenda, the City is negotiating the price and terms with owners of office properties in the North Commercial, Professional Commercial and Central Commercial zones. Did you know the city was even considering purchase or lease of commercial office properties? When did the Council discuss that? It hasn’t been on any open agenda. I asked the City Manager if he could tell me the addresses and names of the property owners being negotiated with, and he said no, they were following the advice of the City Attorney. So why the secrecy? Discussing price and terms is certainly confidential, but according to State law, discussing desire to purchase/lease of downtown commercial properties and identifying the properties and names of the owners is required to be disclosed in the agenda! So, why isn’t the City Council letting us know what they are doing? And why isn’t the City Attorney telling them that they are supposed to discuss “the people’s business” in the open, per the Brown Act? The Del Mar Council should be able to depend on the advice of the City Attorney, but if it has a smell, they should not hesitate to question the advice. Maybe it’s time to replace the City Attorney (and the Council)? Ralph Peck, Del Mar

San Dieguito Union High School District Education Matters/Opinion Superintendent Rick Schmitt’s Monthly Update Buried school board agendas Superintendent Rick Schmitt plans to update the greater San Dieguito Union High School District community through the local media with a monthly update. Topics covered will include curriculum, facilities, budget, safety, and other specific and special interest topics. Today’s update focuses on curriculum Rick Schmitt and facilities. BY RICK SCHMITT San Dieguito Union High School District owes a big thanks to everyone who supported Proposition AA in November, 2012. This was the first school bond election in our district since 1972. The projects funded by Prop AA will be a significant investment in our community that will touch every school building, improve each neighborhood, and affect every instructional program in the district. After a busy spring of planning, our first projects got underway at several of our schools this summer. We’ve upgraded network infrastructure, improved fields, and added air conditioning to many buildings. More substantial projects are still in the planning phase and will commence next summer. Prop AA funds also allowed the District to purchase two parcels of land in Pacific Highlands Ranch next to Canyon Crest Academy for a new middle school. This school will open in Fall, 2015 and serve 500 students living in the Carmel Valley and PHR communities. The new middle school and Carmel Valley Middle School will eventually serve about 1,000 students each. We are working on establishing boundaries for the new school and expect to present alternatives to the public in the spring. We issued our first series of bonds in April for $160 million. The funds from the first bond draw will provide for the next two years of planning and construction. The bonds are all current interest bonds and have a debt-to-principal ratio of 1.63 to 1. The Board of Trustees adopted a policy last year to restrict use of the expensive capital appreciation bonds other districts have used. The Board also appointed an Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee (ICOC) which includes representation from business people and senior citizens as well as the San Diego County Taxpayers’ Association to monitor bond expenditures. The ICOC will ensure that all funds are used in support of projects included in the bond measure and not for general operating expenses or teacher salaries. The ICOC will also inspect facilities, review cost-saving measures, and review the annual independent audits that are required of general obligation bond funds. We have many years of construction and improvements ahead of us. We will keep you informed of our progress, but if you would like more information, I would encourage you to take a look at the special webpage we have created for Prop AA at www.sduhsd.net/PropAA. Curriculum: In the early 1990s the state of California developed content standards for each of the four core academic subject areas (English/ Language Arts (ELA), Math, Science, and Social Studies) that outlined what students were to learn at each grade level. Subsequently the state developed annual standardized tests intended to measure individu-

al and collective student achievement relative to these standards – these are known as the California Standards Tests (CST) and have been the primary tool by which student achievement has been measured in California and the primary means by which schools and districts have been held accountable over the last two decades. The CST’s were part of California’s overarching testing and accountability system called Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) which included: •California Standards Tests (CST) for ELA, Math, Social Studies, and Science •California Modified Assessment (CMA)/California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA), both intended to measure mastery of California ELA & Math standards for students with significant disabilities •Standards-based Tests in Spanish (STS) intended to measure mastery of California ELA & Math standard for English Learners in the U.S. for 12 months or less •California HS Exit Exam (CAHSEE) for ELA & Math All of these tests were aligned to and intended to measure student achievement of the California Content Standards and fulfilled all federal accountability requirements. All of these measures were included in the development of an Academic Performance Index (API) for each school – a single score intended to be a holistic measure and indicator of school-wide academic achievement. Since authorization of the federal “No Child Left Behind Act” in 2001, all states have been required to develop a system of accountability for student achievement that includes content standards and annual achievement testing – each state has developed its own standards, tests, and system of accountability in accordance with NCLB requirements. The Development of the Common Core State Standards: In the spring of 2009 the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State Schools Officers met to discuss the possibility of states voluntarily collaborating to develop a set of common standards and assessments. At that time 48 states agreed to work toward this goal and the result was the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for ELA and Math. These standards are benchmarked to the academic standards of the highest achieving nations in the world and reflect research on the skills and knowledge students need to be successful and competitive in the universities and careers of the 21st century, placing greater emphasis on critical thinking, problem solving, literacy, and application of skills and knowledge. As these standards were developed, new assessments tied to these standards were created simultaneously. California has adopted the CCSS as our state’s official standards for ELA & Math and has adopted the new Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) assessments to measure student growth and achievement relative to these new standards. These new assessments will be officially administered to all students and schools will be held accountable for achievement on them for the first time in the spring of 2015. As you’ve likely seen in recent news reports, both the California Assembly and Senate passed Assembly Bill 484 on Sept. 11, 2013 and Governor Brown has publicly stated his intent to sign the legislation into law. AB 484 revamps California’s student assess-

Del Mar Union School District approved a number of expenditures, most related to technology. The purchase order report for July shows nearly $453,000 in technology costs. Cathy Birks, DMUSD’s assistant superintendent of business services, said about $277,700 was related to ChromeBook acquisitions, and some of the costs were offset by donations. About $70,300 went to Nimble Storage for two servers to replace failing equipment, and $92,713 was a P.O. for Safari Montage for video and content distribution equipment, which replaces an older, failing VCR system. Three purchase orders were issued to the Dolinka Group, a financial advisory and facilities planning services organization based in Irvine, for the administration of special taxes for two Community Facilities Districts and for a demographic study of the Pacific Highlands Ranch area. A purchase order to Pacifica Del Mar restaurant in Del Mar for $873 was for a day of training on August 7 attended by 20 DMUSD leadership team members, Birks said. Lastly, the latest P.O. for Care-A-Van, the company DMUSD uses to provide transportation to and from school for special education students, totals $641,000. This is to transport about 62 students for the 2013-2014 school year, Birks said, which comes to approximately $10,338 per student. Although mandated by law, transporting special ed students is funded primarily with money from a district’s general fund. County money The Board of Education at the County of San Diego voted itself a 5-percent raise last month, which increases each member’s monthly stipend from $463.05 to $486.20, according to Music Watson, chief communications officer for the San Diego County Office of Education. The motion was made by Sue Hartley, the local board representative for the fifth district at the county office of education, and passed 4-1. The raise is retroactive to August 1, 2013. The single no vote was cast by Gregg Robinson, board member for the first district, which runs from just south of Del Mar along the coast to Point Loma. Hartley’s district extends from Del Mar, north to Fallbrook, and inland to include Bonsall and part of the Poway Unified School District. — Marsha Sutton can be reached at SuttComm@san.rr. com.

UPDATE continued from page 19 ment and school accountability system in light of the new Common Core Standards and related assessments. What follows is a summary of some of the key parts of this new legislation, what it means for our schools and students, as well as what questions remain. Key Implications of the New Legislation: With California’s adoption of the Common Core standards and the selection of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) assessments to measure achievement of the CCSS, AB 484 was initiated. The new legislation renames the state assessment and accountability system as Measurement of Academic Performance and Progress (MAPP). The legislation is wide-ranging and there are a number of questions yet to be answered, particularly in relation to Federal “No Child Left Behind” (NCLB) requirements, but the key provisions are as follows. Academic Performance Index (API): The API is suspended for the 2013-14 & 2014-15 school years and during this time would be reformulated to include the new MAPP assessments and to include yet to be determined measures of school quality other than test scores. CST/CMA: CST’s and CMA’s for all subject areas and for all grade levels are eliminated effective immediately. CAPA: The CAPA will continue to be used for students with significant disabilities in ELA & Math in grades 3-11 and science in grades 5, 8, & 10. Science Tests: NCLB requires assessment of science performance at certain intervals so California will continue to use the existing NCLB Science tests at grades 5, 8, and 10 until new assessments aligned to the recently adopted Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are developed. A timeframe for the development and implementation of these new NGSS assessments is yet to be determined. 2013-14 MAPP Tests: The new legislation calls for statewide participation in 2013-14 field testing of the new computer-based MAPP assessments (created by SBAC) in grades 3-8 & 11 in ELA and Math. For 2013-14 these tests would be given as part of the SBAC field tests and at this point the field tests are not expected to

yield scores for individual students, schools, or districts and therefor the MAPP tests will not be used for any accountability or reporting purposes. Given that AB 484 has not been signed into law yet and still requires subsequent administrative guidance from the California Department of Education, many questions remain about exactly when, how, and to what extent schools will be expected to implement the 2013-14 MAPP field test. Early Assessment Program (EAP): The EAP program is intended to be a way for high school juniors to measure their readiness for college-level English and math, parts of which were built into the STAR tests. Under the new legislation, for 2013-14 the existing EAP assessments will continue to be offered to schools and students on a voluntary basis and at no cost. After 2013-14 parts of the EAP will be built in to the MAPP assessment and will continue to be voluntary. 2014-15 MAPP Tests: In the spring of 2015 MAPP tests will be administered formally for ELA & Math for all students in grades 3-8, and 11. Results will be provided for individual students, schools, and districts and results will be used for state and federal accountability and reporting purposes. Some parts of California’s new MAPP plan appear to conflict with Federal NCLB requirements and these conflicts will need to be resolved through negotiations between state and federal education agencies. California’s State Superintendent of Public Instruction has already announced the state’s intent to apply for a one year waiver from NCLB requirements to accommodate the state’s plan. We expect this to be resolved shortly. What Do These Changes Mean for SDUHSD? As a district we are excited about the shift to the Common Core Standards and the associated assessments. Most importantly, we believe that the learning objectives outlined in the CCSS more closely reflect what we regard as the most important educational outcomes for our students - a significant departure from the rote knowledge emphasized in the old California Content Standards. We believe the new MAPP assessments tied to the CCSS represent a vast improvement over the CST’s because the MAPP assessments, while

likely not perfect, do measure student learning through multiple modes (writing, critical thinking, application of knowledge and skills, etc.) rather than purely through multiple choice tests which emphasize recall of information as with the CST’s. We also see great benefit in many states utilizing the same high academic standards for students – not only does this allow for collaboration among educators across state lines, it also creates opportunities for fiscal efficiencies of scale. The immediate suspension of CST’s also alleviates the difficult quandary California schools faced in 201314. Prior to the suspension of CST’s, our students, teachers, and schools were faced with untenable choices. Given that California Content Standards and the Common Core Standards represent two very different visions of what students should know and be able to do, had the CST’s stayed in place for 2013-14 our students, teachers, and schools faced three bad choices: 1) For 2013-14 we could continue to focus on the California Content Standards and CST’s while ignoring the CCSS despite the fact that we will formally be held accountable for the CCSS in 2015; 2) For 201314 we ignore the CST’s and focus on transitioning to the CCSS and MAPP assessments even though we will be held accountable for the CST’s that were to be given in May of 2014; 3) For 2013-14 we try to focus on both the CST’s and the CCSS/MAPP and likely not do either of them very well. The elimination of the CST’s for 2013-14 removes the inherent tension between the two sets of standards and accountability systems and allows us to move ahead with our transition to the Common Core State Standards without fear of being held accountable for student achievement on the now irrelevant California Content Standards and CST’s. This will allow our teachers to focus entirely on shifting curriculum, assessments, and instructional practices to align with the CCSS and the associated assessments for which students, schools, and teachers will be held accountable beginning in 2014-15. Where Do We Go From Here? We will continue to provide ongoing professional development for all of our teachers to ensure that they are grounded in the new standards and assessments as well as the curricular and instructional shifts that

these standards and assessments require. We are working actively with the five districts that send students to us to ensure curricular alignment and a smooth academic transition for students as they move from one district to another. We are researching instructional materials aligned to the CCSS as well as developing our own materials in-house and will, through a public process, adopt CCSS-aligned textbooks when and where appropriate. We will continue to offer the rigorous college-preparatory, honors, and Advanced Placement curriculum for which our district is known as well as provide support and remediation services for students who demonstrate difficulty with achieving grade level learning expectations. We will continue to monitor developments at the local, state, and federal levels and will communicate regularly with our families and community as we make this important transition to a new set of academic standards that we believe will help us better prepare our students for post-secondary success regardless of what path they pursue after high school graduation.

TPHS Golf Club to hold first tournament on Sept. 29 The Torrey Pines High School Golf Club is holding its first annual golf tournament on Sunday, Sept. 29, at the Lomas Santa Fe Executive Golf Course in Solana Beach. Senior Blake Kubicka founded the club last year to encourage other teens to play, make new friends and grow the game of golf. The event will include a barbecue lunch at 11 a.m. before a shotgun start at noon. The tournament will be played in a scramble format. Making the tournament a little more challenging is that the Torrey Pines cheerleaders will be re-creating “The Loudest Hole In Golf” on the first tee. Similar to the Phoenix Open’s 16th hole, considered the loudest hole in golf as it’s surrounded by cheering and jeering fans. Space is limited to participate and hole sponsorships are available. For more information, contact Lynn (Kubicka) Debban at (858) 756-5033, via text at (858) 229-3799 or email lynnkub@gmail.com.

Solana Beach resident holding events featuring expert on endangered bonobos

Sheila Crosby. Photo/Kristina Houck

Solana Beach Library welcomes new branch manager BY KRISTINA HOUCK From attending council meetings to visiting local retirement centers, Sheila Crosby has toured Solana Beach to learn about the community she serves as the new branch manager of Solana Beach Library. “Libraries, nowadays, in order to stay relevant, we can’t just be about books and be about our building,” said 35-year-old Crosby, who lives in Carmel Mountain Ranch. “You have to become whatever it is the community needs you to be. Our focus isn’t on books; it’s about information. It’s about connecting our community so they can be educated and involved. I’m interested in getting involved and learning about the community to find out what those interests are and make sure we have what they need.” A recent Oklahoma transplant originally from Los Angeles, Crosby started with the San Diego County Library on Aug. 9. She has worked in public libraries for seven years, most recently as the branch manager of Moore Public Library of the Pioneer Library System in Oklahoma. “I believe in small community branches because that’s when you can really make a difference for that individual community,” Crosby said. Crosby worked as a teller at a Rancho Santa Fe bank while she attended San Diego State University, where she earned her bachelor’s in comparative literature with a minor in linguistics. After graduation, she worked for a mortgage company before relocating with her husband to his home state. “I went to work every day and I didn’t like my job,” Crosby said. “I thought I had to find something that I wanted to do.” After the couple’s move, Crosby decided to go back to school. She remembered how much she enjoyed attending ballet classes and other programs at her local library growing up, and decided to pursue a career in public libraries. While studying for her master’s degree in library sciences at the University of Oklahoma, Crosby landed her first job in the field as the youth services librarian at Pioneer Library System’s Noble Public Library. “The very first day I started my first library job — that’s when I knew that that’s where I was supposed to be,” Crosby said. “It was just so much fun. I kept on pinching myself saying, ‘I can’t believe they pay me to do this kind of work!’ I just knew that was where I was meant to be.” See LIBRARY, page B26

BY KAREN BILLING Solana Beach resident Debbie Sandler is continuing her efforts to raise awareness for endangered bonobos, co-sponsoring several local events where the public can meet Claudine André, a conservation expert on the species. Since 1994, André has run Lola ya Bonobo, a sanctuary for orphaned bonobos in the Democratic Republic of Congo. She is making a stop in San Diego on a rare tour of the west coast and will participate in two events held in Carmel Valley and Solana Beach. “With no formal education in primatology or any other animal science she is an unexpected candidate to achieve landmark accomplishments for one of the great ape species,” wrote Julie Scardina and Jeff Flocken in the book “Wildlife Heroes,” a book that profiled 40 leading conservationists and the animals they seek to protect. “She’s one of the angels of the world,” Sandler said. The first event where the public can meet the prominent bonobo activist will be a wine tasting reception hosted by the Sandlers on Thursday, Sept. 26, at Carruth Cellars on Cedros Avenue in Solana Beach from 7-9 p.m. Space is limited for Thursday’s wine tasting event, so please RSVP to the Sandlers at debbie@ sandlergroup.net to be included on the guest list. The evening will include a meet and greet with André, and samplings of Carruth’s artisan, boutique wines. The second event will be a SeptemberFest Beerfest at Pacific Sports Resort (previously knows as the Pacific Athletic Club) in Carmel Valley on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 4-7 p.m. The event is a Saving the Wild Things event, raising funds for Friends of Bonobos. The SeptemberFest Beerfest will feature beers from Ballast Point Brewery, bites, live music and a presentation from André. There will also be an opportunity drawing on a trip to Lola ya Bonobo.

Debbie Sandler (left) with Claudine André (right) at Lola ya Bonobo in the Democratic Republic of Congo last year. Claudine André with a bonobo. Tickets to SeptemberFest are $25 in advance and $35 at the door. More information can be found at savingwildthings. org. Currently there are 65 bonobos at Lola ya Bonobo, the world’s only bonobo sanctuary. The number of bonobos left in the wild is unknown but it could be as little as 10,000. The San Diego Zoo is one of only of seven in the United States to have bonobos in captivity. There are currently 12 bonobos in the group at the zoo. The bonobo is one of the four great apes (which also includes chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans), and the bonobos are the least known and the most rare. As the bonobos live exclusively in the Congo there is a degree of difficulty for researchers obtaining access to the animals as much of the country has been engaged in conflict since 1998. Bonobos and chimps are humans’ closest relatives, sharing 98.7 percent of human DNA. Apes, like chimps, live in a male-dominated society with infanticide and war, but the bonobos are female dominated, they are more peaceful and sexual behavior is used as a way to resolve conflicts. “They are important to protect because they provide a model, both socially and genetically, to show that it is possible for hominids to live without war,” Sandler said. “If bonobos go extinct, there will be no way for researchers to discover the exact mechanisms by which humans’ closest living relatives live in peace.” Sandler met André at a Friends of Bonobos event in New York in August of 2012 and by October of that year Sandler was in Congo, visiting Lola, becoming more attached to the species and its plight. André was first introduced to bonobos while serving as a volunteer at the Kinshasa Zoo in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Originally from Belgium, André traveled to Congo when she was 3 years old with her father, a veterinarian. She returned to Belgium to complete her education, but moved back to the DRC to raise five children and run a luxury boutique of African art. At the zoo, she learned that bonobos became orphaned when their mothers were killed in the bush meat trade and struggled to survive. When an orphan bonobo named Mikeno arrived at the zoo, André nurtured and saved that little ape and her life was forever changed, Sandler said. In 1994, André acquired a 70-acre lush forest retreat that had previously been used by former Congolese dictator Mobutu Sese Soko. It became a safe place for bonobos to go.

As baby bonobos are extremely attached to their mothers for the first five years of their lives, easily traumatized and very fragile, they require special attention in the form of human volunteers at the sanctuary called “Mamas.” The Mamas raise the babies until they reach 5 or 6 years of age when they can join the other bonobos at Lola. The first successful reintroduction of bonobos in the wild took place in 2009 and André is working on that as the next big step for the sanctuary, making sure the animals can survive in the wild. At the Sept. 26 and 28 events, Sandler hopes people will attend to learn more about André’s compelling story and ways they can help save and raise awareness for these little- known apes. For information on both events, e-mail Sandler at debbie@sandlergroup.net. Additionally, Warwick’s Bookstore in La Jolla will host André and “Wildlife Heroes” author Julie Scardina on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 4 p.m., for a presentation and book signing. Pacific Sports Resort is located at 12000 Carmel Country Rd. San Diego, CA 92130. For more information on Lola ya Bonobo, visit www.friendsofbonobos.org.

What inspires a life well lived? Chase and Amy Casson. Photo/McKenzie Images

Local nonprofits team up to give homeless children a day of joy with horses at RSF farm BY KAREN BILLING The horses of Rancho Santa Fe’s Osuna Valley Stock Farm brought joy to a group of 17 homeless children from the San Diego Rescue Mission on Saturday, Sept. 7. Chase and Amy Casson, the local couple who leases the farm, were able to run their first Horses for Healing event with help from the ProHope Foundation, founded by Rancho Santa Fe resident Greg Lansing, his wife Laine and daughter Desirea. The group of children from the Rescue Mission, along with some of their parents, came out to the ranch to groom, feed and ride the horses, as well as pet and play with other farm animals such as goats, sheep, dogs and a miniature cow. The group of kids also got to paint and decorate horseshoes as souvenirs of their day. For many of the kids it was their first time being around or on a horse. Even some of the parents were riding a horse for the first time and Amy said their children sweetly cheered them on as they rode. “Horses are very therapeutic,” said Chase Casson. “It’s amazing the confidence they bring out in the kids, it’s mind-boggling.” “There’s a special bond that people can have with animals,” said Amy, who added that they have experienced it with their own children’s love for the horses on the farm. The Cassons, both 38, have three girls who attend Horizon Prep in Rancho Santa Fe. Since they started leasing Osuna Valley six months ago, they knew they wanted to host a charity event but they didn’t have the chance to do so until partnering with ProHope, another new nonprofit. Chase Casson is vice president of investor relations at Lansing Companies

Isn’t it all the special moments? Like waking up in your charming residence. Being greeted by name, with a warm smile. A great meal in stylish surroundings with good friends or an energizing workout. The newfound ease of living in the midst of everything you love. And the assurance that tomorrow’s care needs can be managed for you, right here at home. This is retirement living, enriched and unencumbered— tailored to you.

Photos/McKenzie Images in Carmel Valley, where Greg Lansing serves as president and CEO of one of the largest land development companies in the U.S. The Lansings founded ProHope in November 2012 as an organization committed to helping children, teens and young adults who suffer from mental illness. “We feel it is so important to give back and this was something very near and dear to us, based on issues with someone close to us and other young people who have challenges in life,” Greg Lansing said. “We’ve already provided funding for one young person to get their life back on track and we’re working on our second. Our goal is to help hundreds of kids.” As both the Cassons’ Horses for Healing and ProHope aim to help kids in need, Chase said it was a natural fit for them to work together on this event, hopefully the first of many. The recent event was very rewarding for all involved as children from the Rescue Mission were joined by families who board at the farm and other volunteers. Amy said the children at the Rescue Mission go on one field trip per month — most of the kids never leave the mission other than to go to school or to a doctor’s appointment or legal appoint-

ment. “I think about how often my kids get to go out and play and do fun stuff every week and the children at the Rescue Mission only get one day a month,” Amy Casson said. “That one day a month, that’s a big deal for them, so it was really special for them and it made it even more important to us. That’s why I want to do this again and again.” Everyone stayed longer than anticipated and no one wanted to go home, according to Greg Lansing. “It was such an awesome experience for the kids and for us,” Greg Lansing said. “It changes the adults too, we get as much out of it as the kids do,” said Laine Lansing. “Greg and I were teary-eyed watching the group, they were singing songs and they were so genuinely happy. That we were able to bring them that happiness, that made the whole thing worth it.” Chase Casson said they would love to work with San Diego Rescue Mission again or any other group that would be interested. Donations to the Cassons’ Horses for Healing program as well as ProHope can be made at prohopefoundation.org.

Plant-based food menus fill the bill at new Veggie Grill BY KELLEY CARLSON ast-casual restaurant chain Veggie Grill has planted roots in San Diego County. On Aug. 22, Westfield UTC Mall became its first location in San Diego, and 20th overall. Business appears to be blooming, as the eatery was full of people on a recent Saturday afternoon. “We’re very thoughtful about where we decide to open restaurants, focusing on communities containing mindful people who embrace and prefer delicious food that’s better for you,” said Greg Dollarhyde, chief energizing officer for Santa Monicabased Veggie Grill. The UTC incarnation is similar in appearance to the others and operates the same way. Customers pore over the menu of 100 percent plant-based food, order and pay at the counter, take a number, then sit and relax until the food is brought out, which can be only a matter of minutes. It’s a laid-back environment, enhanced by adult alternative tunes from artists such as Norah Jones and Matt Nathanson. Everything on the menu is free of dairy, eggs, animal fat, trans fats, cholesterol, hormones and high-fructose corn syrup. The “meats” are blends of several types of proteins and special spices. Yet the food — described as “Yumbelievable” by the establishment — is still delicious, customers said. “The food is unique,” General Manager Chris Radle said. “We make sure people got what they thought they ordered and are enjoying it. If not, we’ll get them something else.”

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:

Veggie Grill’s Crostini Italiano There’s quite a variety, from “burgers,” hot sandwiches and wraps to home-style plates, entrée salads and soups. Dollarhyde recommends arriving a little early for dinner before a movie, grabbing a booth and a glass of wine, and ordering a side of the spicy Buffalo Wings with celery sticks and house-made ranch dressing. For main dishes, try selections such as the Savory Kale Caesar Salad with a mound of marinated kale, romaine hearts, tempeh bacon, avocado chunks, cucumber, croutons, veggie Parmesan and Caesar dressing. Baja “Fish” Tacos features corn tortillas stuffed with crispy “fish,” green cabbage, Baja sauce and cilantro. The All-American Stack is a tall sandwich of veggie-steak in a spicy house-made

marinade, lettuce, tomato and onion rings with a side of Sweetheart Fries made from sweet potatoes that’s dusted with veggie Parmesan. The GF (Gluten-Free) Power Plate has kale, a salad of sliced tomatoes, basil, avocado and a three-layer stack of portobello mushroom, caramelized onions and tempeh that is drizzled with chipotle ranch. The Thai Chickin’ and Santa Fe Crispy Chickin’ wraps feature wheat tortillas filled with chickin’, lettuce, assorted vegetables and dressings. Among the beverages are organic iced teas: Green Pomegranate, Ginger Hibiscus and Unsweetened Black; regular and strawberry house-made lemonades; bottled drinks such as root beer and ginger ale; red and white wines; and two types of beer. If there’s room for dessert, delectables include the Chocolate Pudding Parfait — layers of pudding and cookie crumbles garnished with chocolate syrup, walnuts and a dollop of VG crema, served in a chilled glass. The moist Carrot Cake is frosted with a cream cheese that isn’t overpoweringly sweet and sprinkled with walnuts and carrot shavings. Veggie Grill offers a kid’s meal, which consists of an entrée (Chickin’ nuggets, burger or mac-n-cheese), a side (sweet potato fries, mandarin oranges, carrot sticks or steamed kale), dessert (chocolate pudding or cookies) and a drink for $5.95. The Veggie Grill chain has intentions to next open in Carlsbad.

Local resident opens Maggie B and Mister B boutiques at Flower Hill Promenade BY KRISTINA HOUCK When Maggie Bobileff moved from Switzerland to California 15 years ago, she brought more than just her luggage. She brought her European fashion sense. After owning a boutique in her native Switzerland, Bobileff opened a men’s boutique in the Rancho Santa Fe Plaza eight years ago. The success of Mister B led to Maggie B, a women’s boutique, which opened three years later. In July, the Rancho Santa Fe resident opened two new locations in Del Mar’s Flower Hill Promenade. “I think Flower Hill, right now, is the trendiest mall in San Diego North County,” Bobileff said. “We’re excited to introduce everybody to the new location. We’re very proud of it.” From Armani Jeans to Zanella, Maggie B and Mister B offer a variety of men and women’s apparel and accessories. Specializing in European styles, Bobileff travels to New York and Milan twice a year to bring the latest trends to San Diego. “I’m from Europe, so I

management, wholesale, buying, owning my own store. I’ve worked in almost every section in fashion.” The public is invited to the Oct. 4 grand opening of Del Mar’s Maggie B and Mister B. The event will feature fall fashions, appetizers, drinks and music. Maggie B and Mister B is located in the Flower Hill Promenade at 2670 Via de la Valle, Suite A-210, Del Mar; (858) 755-7525, (858) 755-7581. For more information, visit maggiebclothing.com and misterbclothing.com.

Del Mar breaks ground on new, expanded turf course

Maggie Bobileff, owner of Mister B and Maggie B. Photo/Kristina Houck knew all these lines. I searched everywhere for items when I opened my new stores,” Bobileff said. “I choose my selections by thinking of my customers. There are clothes for every type, every size. Clothes can always make you feel good, and that’s what we really try to do. We want to make the customer feel good.” With more than 30 years of experience in the fashion industry, Bobileff still remembers using her mother’s old dresses to create new designs as a child, and sewing a suit for her first boyfriend. After studying men’s and women’s fashion retail management in college, Bobileff was hired as a manger of a department store. After stints in wholesale and buying, she opened her first boutique, La Prima, which is Italian for “the first.” “Fashion is my life. I started as a really young girl,” Bobileff said. “I’ve been in the fashion business forever. Retail

Del Mar may have just finished its summer meet, but the seaside track is already at work preparing for Opening Day 2014. The track began an expansion of its turf course – expected to cost a bit less than $5 million – on Sept. 13, widening the green to accommodate more horses and, ultimately, making Del Mar eligible to host the Breeders’ Cup Championship – in effect the Super Bowl of thoroughbred racing – as soon as November 2015. The grass, grown in California’s Coachella Valley, could be installed as early as January 2014. Del Mar, Hunter Industries of San Marcos (irrigation) and Koch Armstrong General Engineering of El Cajon (removal/installation) will be readying the site in the coming months, starting with the Sept. 13 official groundbreaking. Features of the new turf course include: •The widening of the

course and the softening of its turns will make it safer for horses and riders •Ability to accommodate 14 thoroughbreds versus the current 8- to 10-horse maximum •Widened to 80 feet from the present width that varies between 63 and 52 feet on the straightaways and between 56 and 54 feet on the turns •Capacity for five or six rail movements to minimize wear on the inside paths of the course, up from the current three – will ensure fresh and lush grass for runners throughout the meet •Will consist of 10.5 acres of grass, compared to 7.7 acres on the existing course.

San Diego Musical Theatre’s ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’ The Fats Waller Musical Show’ to run Sept. 27-Oct. 13 San Diego Musical Theatre will present “Ain’t Misbehavin’ The Fats Waller Musical Show” at the Birch North Park Theatre Sept. 27-Oct. 13. The outrageously prodigious comic and musical soul of 1930s Harlem lives on in this rollicking, swinging, finger-snapping revue that is still considered one of Broadway’s best. The inimitable Thomas “Fats” Waller rose to international fame during the Golden Age of the Cotton Club, honky tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, rent parties, stride piano players and that jumpin’ new beat, Swing. Although not quite a biography, Ain’t Misbehavin’ evokes “the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original as a versatile cast struts, strums and sings the songs he made famous in a career that ranged from uptown clubs to downtown Tin Pan Alley to Hollywood and concert stages in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Assembled under the expert eye of director/lyricist Richard Maltby, Jr., Ain’t Misbehavin’ is one of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time.” For individual or group tickets contact the Administrative Office at 858-560-5740 or visit SDMT online at www.sdmt.org.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS Students at The Grauer School learn in and beyond the classroom BY KRISTINA HOUCK During the wet season when animals are not always available, the Hadza hunter-gatherers of Tanzania rely on honey, fruits and vegetables. Through a series of whistles, the honey-guide bird leads the honey hunter to the beehive where he pounds wooden pegs into the tree trunk, climbs to the top where the hive is located, chops into the tree to expose the hive, smokes it out, and retrieves honey for his tribe and the honey-guide bird. A junior at The Grauer School in Encinitas, Natalie Brooks learned about the communication between the honey-guide bird and the honey hunter while watching a documentary. Although she never thought she would witness the unique relationship first-hand, Natalie found herself listening to singsong whistles and tasting honey during a schoolsponsored expedition to the East African country last year. “It was the coolest thing,” said 16-year-old Natalie. “This happened to me, and I saw it in a documentary. It was really exciting.” An independent college preparatory school, The Grauer School offers rigorous academics, enriching arts and competitive athletics. In order to graduate, students are also required to complete 50 hours of community service and a total of five weeks of expeditions. In addition to the trip to Tanzania, Natalie has visited New Orleans and Washington D.C. She has also participated in an astronomy camp, Hollywood film expedition and a rock-climbing trip in California. Still, going on expeditions is Natalie’s second favorite thing about The Grauer School, which she has attended since seventh grade. Her favorite? She gets to be herself. “I never feel like I have to be something that I’m not,” said Natalie, who briefly attended a public school while in eighth grade. “At [my previous school], I always felt like if I wanted to try really hard in class, I had to hide it. I also felt like everyone around me was doing the same thing. It was like a mutual agreement to not be real in any way. At Grauer, everyone is just able to be real. It’s something I don’t think I can say about any other school.”

enrich the core curriculum,” said 62-year-old Grauer, who has a master’s degree in education and has been a teacher since he was 23 years old. “Every single class that we have allows kids to develop beyond the core curriculum in areas of personal passion.” Although she just started 11th grade, Natalie is already planning for college and considering a career in medicine. She recently completed a month-long summer internship at Stanford University, where she learned cardiothoracic surgical skills. “The Grauer School has prepared me for college,” Natalie said. “The teachers really want you to learn.” The Grauer School is located at 1500 S. El Camino Real in Encinitas. For more information, call 760-944-6777 or visit www. grauerschool.com.

Lux Art Institute seeks volunteers for youth board

Natalie Brooks (right) in Tanzania. Courtesy photo Founded in 1991 by Dr. Stuart Grauer, The Grauer School offers 160 classes for 150 students in grades sixth through 12th. The school’s 30 teachers adhere to the Socratic model, encouraging inquiry and discussion. “It’s by far the most tried and true, most successful teaching methodology. It respects the intelligence of the student,” said Grauer, who has been in education for nearly 40 years. “When we use the Socratic method, we’re opening up the classroom environment much more toward what’s inside of students. The Socratic method entails a fundamental belief that there’s a great deal of wisdom already in students. Our goal as teachers is to tap into that, to unleash that.” The Grauer School also prepares its students for life after high school by encouraging them to explore their interests, Grauer said. “There are constant opportunities for the kids to not only study the core curriculum, but to work with teachers to

New Searsucker restaurant recently opened with goal of providing a family-friendly eatery BY KAREN BILLING Since opening in July, Del Mar Highlands’ Searsucker has taken big efforts to introduce itself to the community as a brighter, simpler, less-cluttered, quieter, more family-friendly eatery than its predecessor Burlap. Both Searsucker and the former Burlap are members of the Enlightened Hospitality Group, headed up by James Brennan and Chef Brian Malarkey. The first Searsucker opened downtown in 2010 and has been brought to Scottsdale, Ariz. and Austin, Texas — and now Carmel Valley. The group also runs Herringbone in La Jolla, and is set to open its second location in Los Angeles’ Mondrian Hotel on New Years Eve. Manager Nick Baker said the new Searsucker caters more toward the surrounding neighborhood. “Burlap became more and more of a bar scene. The restaurant still has a lively bar scene but as Carmel Valley has lots of families, we wanted it to be a place people feel comfortable coming with kids. We feel this is better for the community,” Baker said.

restaurant — Baker said people let the management know it was often too loud to enjoy a meal. The long tables have now moved to the separate bar area and if there is live music or deejays they stay in the bar as well, keeping the dining room as a place where people can eat and visit in a quieter, although still lively environment. The 6,000-square-foot restaurant offers several different experiences, Baker said, with the main dining room, a quieter private dining room, the bar area and the outdoor patio. The surfaces of the bar remain pre-set with utensils, to further promote that return to a focus on food. Outside they also added the much-requested booth spaces (they never had booths in Burlap) and an expanded fire pit area with ample places for people to sit and eat around it. Where Burlap tended to be darker, Searsucker has brightened the place up. The windows in the front have been opened up and a skylight was added to the bar area, filling the restaurant with natural light. The wall to the kitchen remains open

with windows as with all of Malarkey’s restaurants. The star of Searsucker kitchen’s show is Chef de Cuisine Andrew “Dizzle” Phillips. Phillips started as a line cook at the first Searsucker in downtown San Diego and has worked his way up the ranks. While Searsucker’s menu is similar to the downtown location’s, Phillips has put his own spin on a few items.

Carmel Valley Middle School student helps find families for homeless rabbits Carmel Valley Middle School seventh grade student Melanie An is the newest volunteer at the San Diego House Rabbit Society. The HRS rescues abandoned domestic rabbits in the community and finds new homes for them. It is an allvolunteer nonprofit organization that has been in existence for over 20 years. The local chapter also educates the community on the proper and responsible care of domestic rabbits. Melanie has been a rabbit owner since the age of 5 and currently has three rabbits. She says when her mom told her about the opportunity for a volunteer videographer and editor position at the local house rabbit facility she knew it was meant to be. “I have always loved taking care of rabbits and this is a great way for me to help those little bunnies that need homes. I will be taking video of them, editing and after they are approved by the adoptions director they will be uploaded to the HRS website and YouTube channel so that families can look at them and hopefully make them a part of their family!” Judith Pierce is the local co-chapter manager and adoptions director of the San Diego House Rabbit Society. She says there are currently over 100 rabbits that are cared for by the local HRS chapter volunteers and fostering families. “On any given day there are about 20 bunnies available for adoption at our center. Our local adoption days are Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. in our Kearny Mesa location. Families can come to look at the bunnies and

Arts Alive is a must see event, featuring live musicians, modern dance troupes, theatre performers, plus, “Artopia,” fence artwork created exclusively for this year’s festivities.

Volunteer Melanie An see if they can provide a new home.” She adds that some rabbits are sanctuary pets because they have an illness or are just not able to be adopted. They live the remainder of their lives with foster families and the HRS. Many are bunnies that were bought during Easter or for special events and were later returned or set free. Luckily, some rabbits are rescued and end up at the HRS while others are not so fortunate. The center relies heavily on volunteers and donations. The organization’s largest charity event of the year is coming up this weekend on Sunday, Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bunnyfest is the group’s annual fundraiser which draws almost 700 visitors from all over the county. This year the event will take place at Balboa Park. HRS officials hope the location will attract not only the traditional bunny lovers but curious onlookers as well. Pierce adds, “We hope to get many rabbit adoptions from Bunnyfest this year and send home bunnies with loving families who will take care of them for many years to come.” The Bunnyfest event will include an open air fair with arts and crafts, games for children, a petting zoo, informational bunny booth, food carts, bunny races and a silent auction. Admission and parking is free. The exact event location at Balboa Park is the corner of Park Blvd and President’s Way. Proceeds will help the local HRS chapter as well as the much needed creation of a rabbit shelter for the community. The San Diego House Rabbit Society depends on support from the community. The Petco Foundation is one of the event sponsors for Bunnyfest this year. Volunteers are always needed for rescue, adoption and education efforts. More information on the HRS and Bunnyfest can be found at www.sandiegorabbits.org.

Inspirational NCL board meeting held by San Diego Del Norte Chapter

9/11 Tribute in Del Mar On Sept. 11 of this year, Barbara KrystoffScott (who annually spearheads this tribute) and her volunteers placed 3,000 flags on the grass at Powerhouse Park to honor those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. Krystoff-Scott and her volunteers began placing the flags at 8 a.m. At 6 p.m., Del Mar Mayor Terry Sinnott spoke to those in attendance, a moment of silence was held and then Taps was played. After the moving tribute, those present, including the Mayor, began to unearth the 3,000 flags with the same care with which they were placed. — Photos and report by Del Mar resident Lauren Essex.

Schaffer Dental Excellence holds official Grand Opening Celebration On Thursday, Sept. 12, Dr. Robert and Danielle Schaffer hosted the community to celebrate the official grand opening of Schaffer Dental Excellence. “My practice philosophy is to have a warm, family-friendly practice,â€? said Schaffer, whose office, Schaffer Dental Excellence, is located in Carmel Country Plaza at 12750 Carmel Country Road, Suite 205, San Diego 92130. A former naval officer who served in Afghanistan, Schaffer was stationed in San Diego following his tour in the Middle East. When he left the Navy, he and his wife moved back east while Danielle was pregnant with their first child. After a few years, they realized how much they wanted to return to California. “We were dying to get back to San Diego,â€? said Schaffer, “We decided to move and live in Carmel Valley because that’s where the practice is‌and we really want to be a big part of the community.â€? To celebrate the grand opening, Dr. Schaffer is making a $25 donation for every new patient to the PTA fund at Sage Canyon Elementary School in Carmel Valley where his children attend. “We will continue this through the end of the month.

Soup cooked by local restaurants will be served in ceramic bowls handcrafted by local artisans Oct. 12 at a fundraiser to benefit elderly, hungry and working poor people in San Diego. Diners will choose their own bowls and take them home afterward. The event, called “Empty Bowls,â€? will benefit the Third Avenue Charitable Organization, at First Lutheran Church in downtown San Diego. The social ministry provides free meals plus medical, dental and mental health care to people in need, regardless of their religious beliefs. It will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at Calvary Lutheran Church in Solana Beach, whose members regularly volunteer to help TACO with its mission. St. Peter’s Espicopal Church in Del Mar is co-hosting the event. Soup and freshly baked bread will be provided by local restaurants, including Chief’s Burgers and Brew, Taverna Blu, Prepkitchen, Crepes and Corks, The Fish Market, Del Mar Rendezvous, California Pizza Kitchen, Beach Grass CafĂŠ, Naked CafĂŠ, Panera Bread Restaurant, Tony’s Jackal, Woody’s, T’s CafĂŠ, Poseidon, and O’Brien’s Boulangerie. After enjoying their meals, guests take

their bowls home as a reminder of those throughout the world whose bowls are empty. Art organizations whose members will make the bowls include Bishop’s School, Clay Artists of San Diego, Clay Associates, El Cajon Valley and Francis Parker high schools, Get Centered, Plum Pottery, San Diego State University’s Art Department, San Diego Potters Guild, and UCSD Craft Center. The Big Decisions will perform bluegrass and gypsy-jazz tunes during the event. Created in 1990 by an art teacher in Michigan, Empty Bowls is now an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. Locally, it has raised more than $110,000 for TACO over the past several years. The North County Chapter of Thrivent Financial will contribute matching funds from the Oct. 12 fundraiser. A donation of $20 per meal is suggested for the event at Calvary, located at 424 Via de la Valle. For more information, phone the church at (858) 755-2855 or go to its Web site: www.CalvaryLutheranChurch.org

It’s time to root for the rad radish The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Dear Kitchen Shrink: I love to experiment with new foods and every time something interesting pops up in the produce aisle, I grab it and then I’m left standing in my kitchen, pondering how to use it. For example, radishes have become my latest challenge. I need a crash course in what else to do with this zippy tasting root besides carving them into decorative rosettes. Also, does radish have any health benefits? — Dina R., La Jolla For years radishes have been persona non grata in the veggie world, left untouched on cruditĂŠ platters, partially chewed and deposited in kids’ crumpled napkins, even the butt of jokes as in the “Seinfeldâ€? episode when Kramer prepared a radish rose in the shower. Radishes have powerful healing properties and superb flavors that dial up the taste and appearance of even the most unlikely food mates. Here’s a primer to help you get the best out of these remarkable roots. Radish: The New Rolaids Radishes are a member of the Brassicaceae family with cruciferous cousins including cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, horseradish and kale — all mighty anti-cancer warriors. Besides having a zip-a-dee-doo-dah taste and satisfying crunch, radishes are rife with immuneboosting Vitamin C, folic acid, potassium, stress-busting B6, magnesium and bone-enhancing calcium. This low-cal carb (20 calories per cup) has also been prized for cooling internal heat, soothing sore throats, acting like nature’s Dristan in clearing stuffy sinuses, fine-tuning digestion by disintegrating food particles and flushing out assorted toxins that cause bloating and indigestion. There’s more. Packed with water, phosphorous and zinc, rad-

ishes will keep you well hydrated and plump up thirsty cells, giving your complexion a healthy, youthful glow. Many Faces of Radish The root grows in a variety of colors, textures and sizes with differing levels of pungency determined by the amount of ‘isothiocyanate’ it contains. They are typically categorized as spring/summer or fall/winter types. The latter group includes the Daikon aka the Japanese radish, elongated like carrots, with lily-white roots having a moderate to mild kick. The Black Spanish sibling is either round or elongated, with rough black skin and hot peppery white flesh. The watermelon radish has a gorgeous pink flesh, with a milder disposition, adding sweetness and intense color to smoothies and salads. Green radishes are emerald-fleshed with a sweet mellow flavor, while the California Mammoth White, is a Daikon on steroids, growing 8-inches-long yet a gentle giant in mildness. The spring/summer varieties include the wellknown reddish-skinned Cherry Belles and Scarlet Globes with peppery white flesh, the mild and crispy French Breakfast, which fades from carmine to white at the elongated tips, the White Icicle that resembles an albino carrot, and the hearty Plum Purple. Don’t miss out on The Easter Egg (which appears briefly in spring), a mixture of varieties sold in bunches combining white, red, pink and purple. Bunch of Radish Irrelevance • Cook’s tip: Pick firm, unblemished radishes with crisp, green leaves. • Americans chow down on 400 million pounds of radishes a year, • California and Florida are the biggest growers in the country. • From seed to salad in 25 days, the rapid-growing radish is a superb choice for children’s gardens. • Munching a radish has been known to cure hiccups. A Radish Walks into a Salad Bar The tender radish greens can be sautĂŠed with olive oil and garlic for a peppery side dish, or juiced with your favorite fruits. Crush Daikons into a paste with mayo and Meyer lemon juice for a riff on cocktail sauce. Braise the tough-

fleshed black-root varieties with chicken broth, olive oil and red onions as a side dish for baked chicken or wild-caught salmon. Toss chunks in chicken or tortilla soup or stew. Give a splash of eye candy to Caesar, Cobb and Greek salads with strips of multi-colored radishes. Garnish libations or vegetable cocktails with radish fans or coins. Munch them raw dipped in herbed ricotta cheese. Chop a chutney blending radish, red onion, mango and lime juice and top off your favorite burger. Stuff a baked potato with a puree of radish and sour cream. Shred in a slaw or toss in a potato salad. Go Italian with radish and Romano risotto, radish and pesto bruschetta or top a pizza with the braised beauties. Whip up a refreshing radish sorbet as an intermezzo or a breezy dessert with the sweeter watermelon radish.

Sweet and Sassy Radish Salad •3 bunches assorted radishes, coarsely chopped or smashed •2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar •2 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar or Meyer lemon juice •1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil •Sea salt to taste Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well and chill. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and garnish with tender radish greens. Serve as a side for chicken, fish, quinoa or brown rice.

Now back in San Diego, Crosby is thrilled to head the 10,000-square-foot Solana Beach branch, which serves thousands of people every month. In July, nearly 13,000 people visited the branch at 157 Stevens Ave., which circulated almost 30,000 materials. “I knew that I wanted to be with this system, so I applied for any position that I saw open,� Crosby said. “When I went in for interviews, it was still up in the air where I would end up. I was so happy when they called and offered me Solana Beach. Do I take the beautiful beach town branch? ‘Yes, I think I’ll accept!’� Having worked as the children’s department manager before being promoted to branch manager at Moore Public Library, Crosby enjoys working with children and providing book recommendations, especially since she had trouble reading as a young child. She is looking forward to offering community programs, reading at monthly storytime sessions at Solana Beach Presbyterian Church’s preschool, providing reading materials to the elderly at retirement centers and attending local events. “It’s important for me to be present in the community and let people know that we want to be whatever they need,� Crosby said. “Come and visit us at the library. Continue to let us know what you need, and we’ll try our best to provide it.� For more information about the Solana Beach Library, visit http://sdcl.org/locations_SB.html.
