BY KAREN BILLING Imagine this scene: A teenager having the confidence to stand in front of a room of peers and tearfully admit to vulnerability. She talks about the fact that she just moved to this country days ago and is a stranger in a new high school and misses her best friends. The reaction? A group of students stand to welcome her and offer their friendship, wrapping her up in genuine hugs. This is Torrey Pines High School during Challenge Days. Over four days, 500 students opt to go through the program, supported by facilitators from Challenge Day, a company based out of Concord, Calif. Since 1987, Challenge Day has led workshops to help break down barriers and promote a school environment that is based on “understanding, acceptance and love.” Simply put by one of the Torrey

BY JOE TASH A dispute over a 4-acre piece of land next to the Del Mar Fairgrounds threatens to derail an agreement between two state agencies meant to settle a decadesold battle over alleged violations of the California Coastal Act. Eighteen months ago, the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which runs the state-owned fairgrounds, and the California Coastal Commission struck a deal to end the bad blood between the two agencies stemming from alleged Coastal Act violations by the fairgrounds. The Coastal Commission, at a hearing in San Diego on Friday, Oct. 11, considered a permit application by the 22nd DAA to settle one major element of the dispute. Under the March 2012 accord, the 22nd DAA

agreed to spend $5 million to $7 million restore its south overflow parking lot, a 9.5-acre dirt area used during major events such as the San Diego County Fair and annual summer horse racing meet, into wetlands habitat. In return, the Coastal Commission said the fairgrounds could use its east overflow lot, another dirt area, for event parking and other purposes such as storage, and annual pumpkin and Christmas tree sales. The 22nd DAA was required to apply for a permit regarding its plans for the two overflow lots. On Friday, a coalition of environmental groups led by County Supervisor Dave Roberts and the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority, convinced the See FAIRGROUNDS, Page 6

Solana Beach City Council requests report on Fletcher Cove Community Center use policy BY KRISTINA HOUCK In an unanimous vote, the Solana Beach City Council on Oct. 9 decided to explore its options and order a report rather than adopt an initiative for a use policy for Fletcher Cove Community Center they don’t support or spend about $200,000 on a special election. Still, council members indicated voters would ultimately have their say. “The people have spoken,” Councilman David Zito said. “This is a very contentious issue, and the right thing to do is to let the people have their voice.” For more than two years, city officials and residents have attempted to develop a policy that would satisfy Solana Beach residents who want to rent the center for private events and community members who fear adverse impacts from

parties. The building was used for private functions in the 1980s and ’90s before it fell into disrepair. Some residents asked to once again use the facility for parties after the renovation of the 1,100-square-foot center was completed in 2011. Other residents expressed concerns about noise, traffic, parking and public safety. After months of debate and negotiations, the City Council on Aug. 28 adopted a use policy that made the facility at 133 Pacific Ave. available for no more than one event every two weekends, no more than 50 attendees, and no more than two glasses of beer or wine for each guest, during the trial period, which ends Dec. 28, 2014. Zito admitted the policy “wasn’t ideal.” In fact, he See POLICY, Page 7

Customers, employees evacuated from DM Heights grocery store BY CITY NEWS SERVICE Overheated electrical wires behind the produce section in a Del Mar Heights grocery store on Oct. 13 sent smoke billowing into the store, which prompted authorities to evacuate its shoppers and employees, fire officials said.

Del Mar Mesa Planning Board brief; Oct. 10 meeting Del Mar Mesa Community Planning Group board member Allen Kashani complained that the city’s review of the Resource Management Plan in 2011, including the Del Mar Mesa community’s request for an east-west connector trail, has not accomplished its goal of establishing a coherent trails system in the preserve. “Two years later, there has been no progress,” Kashani told the Del Mar Mesa community planning board at its Oct. 10 meeting. The board called for stronger management of the preserve, as Kashani noted illegal trails through the preserve have been closed to the public for over three years, yet he said there still has been no signage, with no clear delineation of trails that are open for use, and which trails are off-limits.

Singer/Solana Beach native who was once a bullying victim becomes anti-bullying advocate BY KRISTINA HOUCK Torrey Mercer was bullied as a child. In elementary school, she was teased for being overweight. In high school, she was ridiculed for releasing music. Now 20 years old, the once bullying victim has become an anti-bullying advocate. Mercer, a Solana Beach native and Canyon Crest Academy alumna, raises awareness about bullying by sharing her story and talent with K-12 students across the U.S. “Hearing different stories really inspires the kids,” said Mercer, a UC Irvine junior majoring in drama and English. “They realize it happened to me — people bullied me at one point. It really doesn’t matter what you look like or where you come from. Anybody can be bullied.” After being bullied in elementary school, Mercer said she was insecure about her body and self-image for a long time. Then, when she was 16, the singer-songwriter was cyber bullied on Formspring, an Internet-based social Q&A website, after she released her first single on iTunes. “They would push me down about singing and about what I wanted to do,” she said. “I knew that I was really good at it, so I knew that these people were just being mean. But it didn’t mean that it didn’t hurt me. “It really gave me the drive to pursue singing and to pursue helping other kids. I think that if someone is tearing you down about a dream of yours, that’s just awful to think it could cause you to never follow that dream.” Mercer was among several artists who participated in the 2011 No Bully Tour. Sponsored by JNFE Global, the national tour featured musicians and guest speakers who addressed the issue of bullying at campuses across the country. “It made me realize I can work with kids and that I love to do it,” Mercer said. “It really is a passion of mine to work with kids of any age. The youth — they’re the future. I want to inspire them to be the best future we can have.” After the tour, Mercer launched her own anti-bullying program at Balboa Elementary School in San Diego in June 2012. She has since visited dozens of schools, mostly throughout California. Mercer recently visited Carmel Valley Middle School on Oct. 1 and 2 to raise awareness about bullying and work with 1,500 students. She shared her story and led a variety

(Above) Torrey Mercer recently spoke about bullying at Carmel Valley Middle School; (Above right) Torrey Mercer performing. Courtesy photos of activities, including “Cross the Line,” where she asked the students questions and encouraged them to step over a line to answer. Questions ranged from ‘Do you like Katy Perry?’ to ‘Have you ever been bullied or bullied someone?’ “Usually the whole group crosses when I ask that question,” Mercer said. “It really makes the kids realize that what’s going on in their school is not OK, and that bullying doesn’t have to happen. They can be kind to each other and be brave.” During the two-day program, Mercer encouraged students to share their stories, which led some of the students to apologize to one another, Mercer said. She also sang inspirational cover songs like The Script’s “Hall of Fame,” as well as some of her own music, including “Looking Glass,” a song about low self-esteem. “I’ve got a lot of feedback from kids who said the music inspired them to be more proactive at their school about bullying,” Mercer said. “I really do believe that music has

the power to really inspire people when it’s brought hand-in-hand with talking about bullying.” In addition to school assemblies, Mercer has held benefit concerts and worked with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention,

National Eating Disorder Association, Natural High and Rady Children’s Hospital. “My goal is to spread kindness and bravery,” she said. “There is never anything wrong with being kind and there is never anything wrong with believing in yourself.” “Remember that everyone is going through something. Everyone has baggage, even the bully. Everyone is insecure about something, mad about something or hurt about something. Remember that, be kind to others, and be the best person you can be.” For more information about Mercer or to book an anti-bullying assembly, visit

The cost is $199 and includes admittance to the premiere of the movie, “Stickablity,” Oct. 21 at ArcLight Cinemas in the UTC Westfield Mall. For tickets or more information, e-mail or visit

BY PAT SHERMAN In 1908, the richest man in the world, steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, tapped an unknown writer named Napoleon Hill to interview the wealthiest and most influential men in the world — people such as department store founders James Cash (J.C.) Penney and F.W. Woolworth; Thomas Alva Edison; George Eastman; and President Theodore Roosevelt. The resulting book became one of the top-20 bestselling books in history,“Think and Grow Rich.” A hundred years later, the Napoleon Hill Foundation tasked local author Greg S. Reid with interviewing some of today’s top wealth-producers and innovators for an update of the book. The result, “Think and Grow Rich: Stickability (the Power of Perseverance)” includes interviews with everyone from Frank Shankwitz, the founder of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, to Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and inventor Martin Cooper. “People couldn’t relate to J.C. Penney and Woolworth and those people of the past, so I went to modern day, iconic figures, interviewing them to find out what they did to persevere,” said Reid, a former advertising executive who grew up in Del Mar. “I was watching ‘60 Minutes,’ and I saw Marty Cooper and I said, ‘I’ve got to interview that guy because he invented the cellular phone.’ Two days later I’m in his office picking his brain and he gave me some of the greatest words of wisdom I’ve ever heard. “One of the things that Marty said is that stickability has to be parallel with another word: flexibility. He says if you’re not willing to adapt and adjust, you’ll end up being stuck. … Right now what you think might be saving you is leading to your demise. The whole idea of stickablity is having the flexibility to sometimes let go, so you can live to fight another day.” Also interviewed in the book is WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg; Anouseh Ansari, the first female private space explorer; three-time Olympic Gold medalist Leah O’BrienAmico; Ron Klein, inventor of magnetic strip credit card technology; and film producer Gary Goldstein (“Pretty

CHALLENGE continued from page 1 experience “heart-opening.” “They recognize that they’re not alone,” said Bishay. “The power of just being honest, of dropping the masks and getting real with each other allows them to connect across lines of difference. They get to break outside of judgments and stereotypes and get empowered to create change in their lives, and they have this amazing group to do it with.” Students open up about everything from eating disorders to watching their parents’ marriage fall apart. Students speak about facing racism, finding acceptance for their sexuality, having physical challenges and just being “different.” One student, in his third year at Challenge Day, rejected the idea that anyone is truly “different,” imploring his fellow students to compare thumbprints. “No one’s is better,” he

said. “Never think you are better than someone. We are all equal.” Teacher Don Hollins, who planned Challenge Days at TPHS and participated in all four days, is always amazed by the gratitude, respect and kindness he sees from the students — event those who initially appeared skeptical about the program. “I’m more open now,” said one student. “My freshman year, I wasn’t expecting that much comfort and tolerance for what I had to say.” One student said her mother encouraged her to do Challenge Days. The student said she felt more relaxed and like a weight had been lifted after she was able to express herself. “It’s never any less amazing,” said one student in her second year participating in Challenge Days. “A lot of things can happen in a year, we face new problems every year. Challenge Day has given me the strength to look into myself and fix my own life and be

the change I want to see in my own life.” The student said last year’s Challenge Days event empowered her to break up with a boyfriend who hit her. Parent Anastasia Rose volunteered at the Challenge Days event for the first time this year, and her daughter participated in the program. She hoped to have a dialogue with her in the coming days about both of their experiences. “It’s very eye opening, they didn’t have something like this when I was a kid,” Rose said. “As a parent it helps to know some of the stresses that kids are going through.” Be The Change Club is the follow-up activity to Challenge Week. Students spread what they learned during Challenge Week to the rest of the school. Torrey Pines also has a Together As One Club that meets every day for lunch, helping to welcome students who are new to the school and to the country. Hollins said there are 950 new students at Torrey Pines High School every year: While 800 are freshman, 150 students are transfers from places all over the world, such as Iran, Portugal, Hong Kong and Korea. In a way, as the Challenge Days event ends, the challenge is just beginning, Bishay said. The two clubs are just a couple of ways to ensure the school remains a connected, welcoming place. She challenged students to “let go

of judgments, accept everyone, give up hurtful language, give out genuine compliments, get real, be vulnerable and not be afraid to be themselves.” “Make this change sustainable,” Bishay said. The Challenge Days event was made possible by teacher Don Hollins, the Torrey Pines High School Foundation, and several parent volunteers who work in groups with the students. Hollins also thanked lead student coordinator Bailey Pope, who had help from juniors Mimi Najmabadi and Isabella Gadinis, and TPHS Foundation officers Bobbi Karlson, Terry Wolter and Holly Coughlin, who provided financial support in addition to doing “everything from checking 125 kids in each morning to ordering and setting up lunch each afternoon.” Shelley Stevenson, PALS parent liaison, was also “invaluable” in organizing the 150 adult participants, according to Hollins. “They are the unsung champions of this event that creates the space for real transformations to take place in the attitudes and self concepts of so many students. It’s an amazing team to be part of,” said Hollins who, in addition to being a teacher, is a PALS advisor, and ISOL lab facilitator. The mission of TPHS PALS is “to promote student well being and connectedness by sponsoring all-school events, establishing one-onone student peer assistance, facilitating campus tours and supporting campus activities.”

Funding offers hope for Galapagos Land Birds The Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos Islands (CDF) and the International Community Foundation (ICF) received news this week that a $600,000 grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust will allow CDF and collaborating institutions to move ahead with research designed to save Galapagos bird species on the brink of extinction. Over the next two years, the aim is to develop techniques for protecting small land birds. The Galapagos National Park Directorate (GNPD), the organization that is responsible for the administration and management of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve, will put these techniques into practice.

FAIRGROUNDS commission to postpone its decision on the permit until the panel’s November meeting. At issue is the southernmost section of the east overflow lot, which the environmentalists said should also be set aside for future wetlands restoration. The 22nd DAA balked at giving up the parcel, estimated at 4 acres. “It does not work. We can’t afford to lose 1,500 parking spaces (from the east lot) on top of the 1,200 we’ve already lost (from the south lot),” said 22nd DAA board member Adam Day, who helped negotiate the deal with the Coastal Commission. After the commission voted 9-2 to postpone its decision, Day said, “If we can’t use the east overflow lot, then there’s no deal. It’s all inter-connected.” If the deal falls apart, Day said, the 22nd DAA would not restore the south overflow lot to wetlands. But Roberts and others from the environmental groups said the 22nd DAA does have other options for parking, which were identified in a parking study conducted by the agency. One option was to use the parking lot at Cathedral Catholic High School on Del Mar Heights Road as a satellite parking lot, where fair- and race-goers could catch shuttle buses to the fairgrounds. Roberts said he is willing to clear his calendar to work on a compromise between the two sides. “I will try to do whatever I can to come up with a compromise that works for all.” Commissioners Greg Cox (a San Diego County supervisor) and Mark Vargas were ready to vote for the permit Friday, supporting the recommendation of Coastal Commission staff. However, other commissioners said they were concerned their decision could result in the destruction of rare wetlands habitat. River Park JPA officials and others who asked the commission to bar the fairgrounds from using the low-

continued from page 1 er one-third of the east overflow lot cited a study commissioned by the fairgrounds, which identified the 4 acres of property as wetlands. “The wetlands can’t speak for itself. I’m hopeful the commission will speak for the wetlands today,” said Dick Bobertz, executive director of the river park. The JPA was created by five local cities and the county of San Diego to create and maintain a 55mile linear park and trail system running from Julian to the coast at Del Mar. The western end of the “Coast to Crest” trail runs alongside the fairgrounds overflow lots, at the mouth of the San Dieguito River. The arguments of Bobertz and other environmentalists hit their mark with some members of the Coastal Commission. “I’m reminded of Joni Mitchell,” said Commission Chairwoman Mary Shallenberger, quoting from one of the popular singer-songwriter’s hit songs: “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.” One reason for the postponement was to give the two sides time to discuss a compromise offered by the 22nd DAA. Day said the agency would be willing to sign over title to a 5-acre parcel of land it owns next to its horse park property, which is on the east side of Interstate 5, to a local environmental group such as the River Park JPA. The intent would be to compensate for the loss of the wetlands in the east overflow lot. Asked by a commission member if that would be an acceptable compromise, Bobertz said, “We would need time to look at that and consider it.” “I urge all parties to get together quickly and work hard and come back before us soon,” Shallenberger said. Also on its November agenda, the Coastal Commission is tentatively scheduled to consider another permit application from the 22nd DAA, covering activities and events on the main fairgrounds property, including a proposed fall horse race meet that would begin in 2014.

POLICY continued from page 1 said he didn’t completely agree with it, but council members tried to avoid a costly special election by adopting a policy they saw as a compromise. According to members of the Friends of the Fletcher Cove Community Center, however, the use policy still has too many regulations. The group filed a voter initiative with the city on Aug. 27 to establish less restrictive rules for the site. The group had to collect 1,311 valid signatures from Solana Beach voters, which represents 15 percent of registered voters in the city, within 180 days to prompt a special election on the measure. In about a month, paid workers and volunteers collected more than 2,000 signatures, said Solana Beach resident Mary Jane Boyd, who backed the initiative along with former Solana Beach Mayor Thomas Golich and resident James Nelson. The Registrar of Voters verified a sufficient number of signatures on Sept. 25, and the petition was certified. If the group waited about a week, the measure could have been included in the June 2014 primary election, which would cost $10,000 to $15,000. However, the petition missed the deadline for the June election by four days, according to the staff report. Boyd said her group was not aware of the time-

line. She and a few of the initiative supporters urged council members to adopt the initiative to avoid a special election. “I ask you again to adopt the language of the initiative without change and not incur the cost of a special election,� she said. “At least give it a try as a trial period. If it doesn’t work, then come back at a regular election and change whatever is not working. You need to call for a special election only if you want to create special regulations to restrict the use of the community center.� Several community members asked the council not to adopt the group’s initiative. “Given the history of this issue, the pattern of deception by the sponsors of the party policy initiative, and the confusion of our residents about what is what and who is who, we respectfully ask the city council to refrain from adopting the initiative tonight,� said Solana Beach resident Kelly Harless, a member of the Friends of Fletcher Cove, a community group she said formed out of concern about the misinformation being spread to the community. If adopted, the initiative could only be modified by a public vote. Therefore, council members agreed to not adopt the initiative because they would have little ability to adjust the policy for public safety concerns. Deputy Mayor Thomas Campbell said he believed

the group intentionally submitted their signatures early to trigger a special election. “During the signaturegathering process, the initiative sponsors and their financial backers and their paid representatives told the Solana Beach citizens and voters that by signing the petition, the matter would go to a vote of the people,� said Campbell, as he pointed to the top of the petition that read, “An initiative measure to be submitted directly to the voters.� “Now the Friends of the Fletcher Cove Community Center’s founders and members are saying they do not want an election, and they want the city council to adopt the initiative without a vote of the people,� Campbell said. “It sure seems to me that they misled the signers of the petition and projected deceit to get their way.� Campbell said he believes in the democratic process, but the initiative sponsors and their financial backers “decided to play Washington-style politics� by using “deceit, lies, misinformation and intimidation� and hiring James Sutton, a political and election law attorney of the San Francisco-based The Sutton Law Firm. Sutton sent a letter to the council on Oct. 3 that stated the group would be sending mailers to Solana Beach community members, asking residents to contact council members and urge them to adopt the initiative into law rather than spend

money on a special election. The mailer, which included a picture of the center and the question, “Who wants a costly special election?� on the front, led residents to send dozens of emails and 260 postcards to the council. Councilwoman Lesa Heebner said signers of the petition were “used as pawns in a political game.� In an email to the email and postcard authors, Heebner explained that the council is not responsible for the cost or the calling of the special election. She added that she is “thoroughly disgusted� with the initiative backers and supporters, including Boyd and Marion Dodson, a former Solana Beach mayor, who now lives in Rancho Santa Fe. “Those people want political power,� she said. “We’re being blackmailed by the proponents of the initiative who lied to the public and lied to us — when some of us up here were trying to compromise and bring together factions on both sides.� Following the meeting, Boyd confirmed that Solana Beach resident Peter House, who was a major benefactor in the $350,000 renovation of the center, paid for the mailers. Boyd said the Friends of the Fletcher Cove Community Center did not misrepresent the facts or coerce people into signing the petition. She added that she did not contribute any funds to the campaign and she was not aware the group

hired an attorney. “The council has disappointed me that they stooped to a level where they would name people from the dais,� she said. Staff will now compile a report that will include any effect, including fiscal impact, the proposed initiative could have on the city’s general and specific plans, housing element, planning, zoning and land use. It will also include impacts on funding for infrastructure, traffic congestion, existing business districts and any other issues council members request. The report must be presented within 30 days, which is when council members can adopt the ordinance as it is written, call for a special election or wait another 10 days to make a decision. The council also briefly discussed establishing an ad hoc committee to craft a competing initiative. Zito volunteered to sit on the committee and be the contact person for public comment on the matter. “I look at it more as doing what’s right versus trying to save a lot of money,� Zito said. “And what’s right is to let the people have their say.�

Education Matters/Opinion

The face of courage By Marsha Sutton What does it say about an ideology that is so Marsha Sutton afraid of a 16-yearold girl’s words that its radicals want to assassinate her? How pathetic do they have to be to fear a little girl? Well, in truth, this is not just any little girl. This is Malala Yousafzai, the diminutive hero whose words and deeds have shown the international community that she is a giant, with wisdom and eloquence beyond her size and age – and a magical ability to touch the hearts and souls of the world. Now 16, Malala at age 14 survived the appalling brutality of an assassination attempt, to recover and tell the world that she will not, cannot, be silenced. Shot point-blank in the head for advocating for a girl’s right to education, Malala touched us deeply with her determination and courage. Today she brings tears to our eyes with her compassionate pleas for peace, education and equality. Pakistan can be proud of what they have given the world through Malala, who speaks for so many. As a western nation, sophisticated in so many ways, what does America have to offer? Sadly, our “heroes” in the teenage girl department are less than admirable char-

Malala Yousafzai acters like Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and the Kardashians. Imagine if these girls and young women used that adoration to advocate for worthy causes. Our pop-culture society idolizes female sexual energy, especially precocious underage nymphets who waste their potential power to do good on frivolous, hollow, greed-driven pursuits like the display of halfnaked bodies dancing on stiletto heels. In contrast, Malala covers her body modestly but certainly isn’t shy about displaying her brains. Instead of the stage being an MTV performance or the half-time show at the Super Bowl, the real stage for more young girls should be a podium and a microphone where they might be a voice for the weak and oppressed. Instead of blathering nonsensically on vapid television talk shows about their latest boyfriends or their favorite hair stylists, we need more young American girls emulating grace under pressure in serious in-

terviews by the world’s top journalists as they speak passionately about issues of substance. In short, is there anything we can do to encourage today’s kids to replace Miley with Malala as the top teen idol? Can there come a time when Western-educated girls no longer take their education for granted and choose modest clothing and maybe even head scarves as symbols of intelligence and power? I’m not optimistic. In one of my favorite on-line comments on the cavernous awareness gap between Malala and most teenagers in America, one writer lamented over the trivial obsessions of the youth generation by facetiously saying that Malala “makes the rest of us feel bad for spending our teen years trying to get into the pants of other teens rather than becoming an international symbol for the fight against injustice.” After hearing Malala on the interview circuit last week talking about her long recovery, her continued pursuit of free and safe education for girls and women, her book, and the possibility of winning the Nobel Peace Prize (which disappointingly she was not awarded), who could not be moved by her words? She even left Jon Stewart of The Daily Show speechless last week with her response after he asked what she thought when she learned the Taliban had targeted her: “I started thinking about that, and I used to think that the Talib would come, and he would just kill me. But then I said, ‘If he comes, what would you do, Malala?’ Then I would reply to myself, ‘Malala, just take a shoe and hit him.’ But then I said, ‘If you hit a Talib with your shoe, then there would be no difference between you and the Talib. You must not treat others with cruelty and that much harshly. You must fight others but through peace and through dialogue and through education.’ Then I said I will tell him how important education is and that, ‘I even want education for your children as well.’ And I will tell him, ‘That’s what I want to tell you, now do what you want.” Malala also told Stewart that you don’t really value what you have until it is taken away. Malala’s bravery is a mirror to the privileged world. What have we done with our rights? What have we learned to value because

Del Mar resident heads depression and bipolar support group BY KRISTINA HOUCK Community members living with depression or bipolar disorder now have a place where they can support one another. Del Mar resident Roger Alsabrook leads a Del Marbased, peer-facilitated support group for individuals with depression or bipolar disorder, as well as their family and friends. As a certified Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance facilitator, Alsabrook said support from others is essential to a lifetime of wellness, in addition to proper diagnosis and treatment. “It’s peer-to-peer, which is so much better because everybody understands you,” Alsabrook said. “Even psychiatrists don’t fully get it because they don’t have the disease.” Originally from Dallas, Texas, Alsabrook was misdiagnosed with major depressive disorder when he was in his 20s. For about two decades, he tried roughly a dozen different anti-depressants that didn’t work. Alsabrook wasn’t properly diagnosed until he was in his 40s. “Finally, I got to a psychiatrist that said, ‘You’re bipolar. You don’t have depression.’ I got on the bipolar meds and my life changed,” said Alsabrook, now 67. “I would be manic for a number of months, and then I would drop very low to the point where I could hardly get out of bed. Finally, I was a functioning person.” After he retired, Alsabrook and his wife permanently moved to their Del Mar vacation home, where they’ve lived for eight years. Three years ago, he discovered the San Diego chapter of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, which meets from 6-8 p.m. every Monday and Thursday at the VA San Diego Medical Center in La Jolla. Alsabrook soon became a board member and trained facilitator. The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance has North County groups in Rancho Bernardo, San Marcos and Vista. About six months ago, Alsabrook launched a new group for Del Mar and the surrounding communities, which used to meet monthly at the Del Mar Community Connections facility. “I wanted to start one in this area because very few people from this area would come to the San Diego group,” Alsabrook said. “I know there are people in North County who need support. Depression and bipolar affects many.” According to the National Institute of Mental Health, major depressive disorder affects approximately 14.8 million, or about 6.7 percent of American adults, and bipolar disorder affects approximately 5.7 million, or about 2.6 percent of American adults in a given year. The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance was created for and is led by individuals living with mood disorders to support others living with mood disorders. There are more than 700 peer-run support groups in the U.S. “These diseases affect everybody,” Alsabrook said. “I have seen through our San Diego chapter — they’re so enlightened because they feel like they’re normal. They see they’re not the only one who has depression or is bipolar.” A few individuals, mostly family members, attend the Del Mar meetings, Alsabrook said. He’s hoping to attract even more people by meeting at a more private location. “A lot of people are worried about the stigma,” he said. “I’ve come out with my name and said I have bipolar, so hopefully others won’t be nervous. I’m hoping to change

Photo/Kristina Houck that. “I would like more people with the disease to come and talk like we do in the San Diego groups. I would also like to have more friends and family members, because they can learn so much more from people with the disease.” The group will meet at its new location from 3-5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 22, at the no drinking area on the top level of the Del Mar Plaza, located at 1555 Camino Del Mar. There is no cost to attend the meetings and all are welcome. No reservations are required. “Being bipolar, if you get the right meds and the right help, you can be normal. Now, instead of up and down, I’m here,” said Alsabrook, as he gestured in between. “It’s just the greatest feeling in the world. I want to encourage people by telling my story. “There are more people out there like you. And there is really good support.” For more information about the meetings, contact Alsabrook at 858-525-1509 or rogeralsabrook@yahoo. com.

Del Mar native launches publishing company to publish debut novel BY KRISTINA HOUCK At just 14 years old, Nigel Schroeder wrote a series of articles on the Del Mar racetrack for the “Del Mar Times.” Now 24, the Del Mar native has launched his own publishing company to release his first novel. “I’m hoping to accumulate a collection of writers from the coast in the next few years,” Schroeder said. “I’ll go first, and I’m just hoping people will rise up and join me. I’d love to put out some really awesome work in the coming years.” With the help of his father, Schroeder established Tired Coast Publishing this year, which will publish his debut novel, “James Buffalo & A Fit of Bad Dharma,” in November. Set in California, the “Tired Coast,” James Buffalo struggles with “bad dharma,” which Schroeder describes as the freefall sensation of wanting good things while doing selfdestructive things. During the story, Buffalo falls in love with his mind, memories of youth, innocence, drugs and, of course, a woman. “This novel is very close to my heart, because it’s about a kid growing up on the West Coast,” Schroeder said. Born in Detroit, Schroeder briefly lived in Northern California and Portland, Ore., before his family moved to Del Mar when he was 8 years old. The book is somewhat inspired by his life experiences, Schroeder said. “Everyone kind of feels the weight of suffering,” Schroeder said. “How do you take the parts of your life you may not enjoy and turn them into something good? How do you burn that nervous energy and create something positive? I think writing the book was probably the happiest I’ve ever been while I was doing it, because I was just burning all that energy and creating.” Schroeder has always wanted to be a writer. He wrote short stories as a child in addition to the series of articles on the racetrack as a student contributor for the “Del Mar Times.” But Schroeder didn’t begin writing his first novel until

— encouraged him to finish his novel, which he did during his senior year. Schroeder graduated with a bachelor’s in marketing and a minor in anthropology in 2012. He’s currently working as an associate project manager at Co-

vario, a marketing agency headquartered in San Diego. When he’s not at work, playing ice hockey or surfing, Schroeder dedicates his time to writing and building his publishing company. “The more I learned about the process of publishing a book, the more I was like, ‘Well, I don’t know if I wrote a mainstream book,’” he said. “It’s a really fun, honest piece of work. I was completely open in terms of providing a window into my soul at the time when I was writing this. It’s not a vampire book. “My thought was just go for it. Why try to appeal to this massive machine when you can just rise up yourself?” To help fund the project, Schroeder is utilizing Kickstarter, an online funding platform for creative projects. Funds will help cover the costs of editing and copyrighting the book, obtaining an ISBN number, printing paperback copies and publishing an electronic version of the book, which will be available through Amazon. Schroeder’s campaign ends on Oct. 19. As of Oct. 14, 93 backers have pledged $3,775, exceeding his $3,500 goal. “Kickstarter has been helpful in funding the project and getting awareness out,” Schroeder said. “It shows that they believe in what I’m thinking. I don’t see it as just a ‘me thing,’ I see it as a collective of like-minded people. “It’s time to rise up and put out really good art, regardless if you’re with a really big publisher or not. If you have to hand your story out on a subway, then do that,” he added. “I think the era of the big publishers is about to come crashing down. My plan is to drive that sword forward.” To donate on Kickstarter, visit projects/jamesbuffalo/james-buffalo-and-a-fit-of-bad-dharma-a-novel For more information about Schroeder, visit

Solana Beach author releases collection of personal meditations and revelations BY KRISTINA HOUCK For 21 years, Solana Beach resident Lily Loh worked as a chef, released her own cookbook, and had two cooking television shows. In September, the 71-year-old released her latest book, “Listen to God Daily.� “Jesus used the fishermen to become disciples,� Loh said. “I was a chef before, but now, instead of feeding people food, I’m feeding people God’s words.� Published by Chula Vista-based Aventine Press, the 367page book includes 365 short meditations and revelations Loh hopes “will inspire busy people to listen to God daily.� She will speak about her latest book on Nov. 7 at St. James Church in Solana Beach. “God speaks to everyone,� said Loh, who has been a parishioner at St. James Church since she moved to Solana Beach in 1977. “We just don’t take the time out to sit quiet and to listen.� Born in China, Loh received a bachelor’s in home economics from Purdue University and a master’s in textiles and clothing with a minor in interior design from Cornell University. After graduation, she worked as a designer for “Vanity Fair� in New York City before she and her family moved to California. For more than two decades, Loh taught Chinese cooking at a variety of places, including MiraCosta College. She released her first book, “Lily Loh’s Chinese Seafood and Vegetables,� which was published by Solana Publishing Company, in 1991. Loh also hosted and produced two cooking shows, “Quick Woking� and “Healthy Woking.� She later published her second book, a family memoir called, “The Lee Family Memoirs.� After her retirement in 1997, Loh and her husband, a retired engineer, joined the Peace Corps. “My husband said, ‘All my life, I’ve been taking things from this world, and I want to give something back to this world,’� she said. While in Slovakia for two years, Loh helped launch a hospice and her husband, George Loh, worked as a consultant for small businesses. The couple returned to Solana

Lily Loh and her book “Listen to God Daily.� Courtesy photo. Beach in 1999. In 2000, Loh was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had surgery and underwent multiple rounds of chemotherapy. Shortly after she finished her last chemotherapy session, her husband died from a brain aneurysm in January 2001. “I knew that God spared my life and healed my cancer because he was calling me to do something for Him,� she said. “It was healing prayer ministry.� In memory of her husband, Loh released her third book, “Two in Eastern Europe,� which detailed the couple’s time in the Peace Corps. For three years, she also participated in a variety of classes and workshops, and trained to become a healing prayer minister. For more than a decade, Loh has served as a prayer minister in her parish’s Healing Prayer Ministry, which meets several times every month. She also prays for people at the Christian Healing Center in Vista, and is a member of the Order of St. Luke and the Association of Christian Therapists.

“I have so much compassion for the sick and the elderly because I have suffered so much myself,� said Loh, who added she almost died from tuberculosis when she was a teenager. Loh, who has two children and three grandchildren with another one on the way, spends much of her time in prayer and meditation. Seven years ago, Loh said another prayer minister prayed for her and told her God was calling Loh to write. Since then, she has read the Bible every morning. After she reads, she reflects and writes in her journal. “After I had been writing for several years, I read the ones I wrote years ago. They still speak to me,� Loh said. “I realized they speak to everyone else, too, because God’s words never come back empty. God’s words are like a twoedged sword. It cuts through bone and marrow. I think this will help many people.� Loh began compiling her journal entries into a book two years ago. In the book, she also teaches people how to meditate and journal daily. “How do I know I’m listening? When I can hear the clock ticking and my refrigerator humming,� she said. “I’m trying to not think of anything. When I cannot sit in the silence anymore, I pick up my pen and start to write. It just flows. I just write out what I hear.� Loh will talk about her book and answer questions on Nov. 7 at St. James Church, 625 South Nardo Ave., Solana Beach. The event begins at 5 p.m. and costs $12, which includes dinner. All proceeds from the book will support seminarians. “By reading my book, I hope people will grow closer to God,� Loh said. “Realize that God speaks to everyone; it’s not just me.� “Listen to God Daily� is available online at For more information, email

BY ROB LEDONNE It was late summer and Patrick Davis was the busiest he’s ever been in his life. Davis, a graduate of Torrey Pines High School, was running errands in preparation for his freshman year of college, a stressful situation for anyone. However, at the same time he was preparing to move clear across the country, as well, to attend Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. It’s a rite of passage for a number of Southern California teens; after growing up on the West Coast, they develop a strong interest to move east to attend college. “I always knew I wanted to go to college on the East Coast,� Davis said. “I started off my college search looking at schools in the UC and Cal State system, but in the end I wanted a change.� Davis isn’t alone; many outgoing high school seniors in North County choose the East Coast for a multitude of reasons, despite the many miles and outright difficulties of all that comes with moving so far from home brings. “From what I’ve found, the East Coast has a lot more small, private colleges,� Davis said. It’s that interest in a private school as well as a change of pace that interest many, explained Mary Sanchez-Allwein, the head counselor at Torrey Pines High School. “Just in the past nine years I’ve been here, I always see students apply to at least one school on the East Coast,� she noted. “Financially, a lot of private schools offer better aide. Plus, they’re looking for something different. Instead of sunny skies every day, they want snow and seasons.� “At first, I definitely didn’t want to go to the East Coast at all,� said Katie Fletcher, another recent Torrey Pines graduate who is attending Yale in Connecticut (Fletcher was interviewed before she left for Yale). “For me, if I was going to go to anywhere besides Southern California, it had to be Ivy League. That was the deciding factor to me: stay in California, or go to a really good school.� Fletcher, who is playing soccer for Yale, said she thinks getting used to East Coast winters will take some adjusting. “For me, that will be tough, but it’s just a matter of understanding that it’s going to snow and get cold eventually. I’m just going to get a better jacket and deal with it.� Unlike those who choose to go to school nearby, menial tasks such as packing clothes turn into a hassle. Before he left, Davis shipped a few boxes of belongings to his uncle, who lives near his school. For Fletcher, her mother drove cross-country with a car full of her stuff. “Obviously that won’t be the case every year, but she [did] it as an adventure, and I’m really, really lucky because I [had] so much stuff to bring,� said Fletcher. Before he left for college, Davis also spent time with his college-bound friends. “We’re trying to get together to say our last goodbyes, though I’m sure we’ll pick it back up when we all come back for break,� he said just before he left. Overall, he was looking forward to his new experience: “I see at it as, I’m going to try something new to find out if I can carve my own

Patrick Davis little niche in Pennsylvania. This is a new opportunity, and if it doesn’t work out it’ll be a small detour.� He explained he is grateful that his parents supported his decision to move so far away. “They weren’t too bothered when I told them I wanted to go to rural Pennsylvania. They wanted me to make an independent decision, and pretty much stayed out of it. No matter what, they said they’d support me 100 percent,� said Davis. “I’m just really psyched and as nervous as anyone would be for a new place, new environment, and new friends.� Fletcher echoed that sentiment before she left for college, but said she would miss many of her favorite North County spots. “I’m a total diva about everything. I need to eat at certain places, and take certain drives before I go. Despite my schedule, right now all I want to do is visit the beach and see the people I want to see.� Summed up Sanchez-Allwein: “It’s a huge leap.�

Community welcomes home Carmel Valley girl after heart transplant BY KRISTINA HOUCK During a fundraiser on Oct. 12 and a party on Oct. 13 (see event photos below), friends, family and community members gathered to support and welcome home a Carmel Valley girl who recently had a heart transplant. “It’s unbelievable how much support we’ve received from friends, family and people we’ve never met,” said Alexa LeMoine, mother of 14-month-old Kayla Jane LeMoine. “It’s unbelievable to think how widespread the support has become.” Kayla was 11 months old when she received a new heart on July 18 at UCLA Medical Center. Born on Aug. 9, 2012, Kayla was diagnosed last spring with dilated cardiomyopathy, a condition in which the heart becomes weakened and enlarged and cannot pump blood efficiently. A couple weeks after her nine-month check-up at the doctor’s, Alexa took her daughter to the emergency room for what seemed like a bad illness. For about a week, Kayla was irritable, had a runny nose and a loss of appetite — all symptoms her parents attributed to a minor cold or teething. Alexa took her daughter to Rady Children’s Hospital on May 30, after she stopped nursing, had dry diapers and vomited. A chest x-ray revealed Kayla had an enlarged heart, and after a long weekend, she was flown to UCLA Medical Center to be evaluated by the pediatric cardiology team. It was there doctors informed the couple that the walls of Kayla’s heart were too thin. She needed a heart transplant to live. “That was the worst day of our lives,” said Kayla’s father, Todd LeMoine. Doctors also informed the couple that their daughter would need another heart transplant in about 10 years. “We had both of those bombs dropped on us in one morning. There were a lot of tears that day.” The family was told they could be waiting for a heart for as long as a year. Therefore, Kayla was stabilized and transferred back to Rady Children’s Hospital three weeks later. Being in San Diego made it easier for Todd to visit his daughter and work at Qualcomm. It was also easier for their 3-year-old son, Kian. About a month later, however, a heart was available. Kayla was airlifted to UCLA while her parents drove to the

Kayla Jane LeMoine Photo/Emma Brown medical center. “I was just completely in shock. I didn’t really believe it,” Alexa said. “She was extraordinarily lucky to get a heart.” “We were happy, but at the same time scared because she was about to go through this procedure and there are risks associated with the surgery,” Todd said. “You’re happy and you’re terrified at the exact same time.” Kayla, then 11 months old, was in surgery for roughly six hours. Doctors warned Alexa and Todd it might be difficult to see their daughter intubated and sedated with an incision down her chest, but they said she was “beautiful.”

“I remember very distinctly, after she came out of surgery and she was still passed out, I put my hand on her chest,” Todd recalled. “I could feel her new heart beating.” Kayla was hospitalized for 10 days. Doctors instructed the family to stay within one hour of UCLA for three months, so Alexa and Kayla moved into the Residence Inn in Torrance. For three months, Kayla was given medication and monitored closely. Todd and Kian drove to Los Angeles every Thursday and drove back home Sunday night. Kayla was finally allowed to return home on Oct. 8. Happy and healthy, Kayla is crawling and climbing. She has even taken her first steps. “When you can’t see the incision, you think she’s just a normal kid,” Alexa said. “She’s learning to walk, she’s talking more — all the kind of stuff that a 14-month old should be doing,” Todd said. “She’s not slowed down at all.” Kayla still faces two major threats to her heart and health: infection and rejection. Currently, she is taking 14 different medications,

and will have to take several medications for the rest of her life. She also has several restrictions. To avoid infection, Kayla isn’t allowed to use community swimming pools and sandboxes. She can’t eat raw foods. But Todd says those are small things that they and their daughter can deal with. “There will be some stuff that she’ll bump into. It may be tough at times,” Todd said. “We also know that there is this other transplant looming out there sometime in the future. It could be 10 years. Some patients have gone 20 years. But that aside, she should have a normal childhood like any other kid.” Since the transplant, Alexa and Todd have written a letter to the family of the 10-month-old girl whose heart was donated to Kayla. They don’t know whether or not the family has read their letter. They just wanted to thank them. “Driving up there to UCLA that night was kind of bittersweet because we knew Kayla was getting a heart, but on the other end of that, some other family was having the worst night of their life,” Todd said. “They had

lost their child. They had lost their dreams. It’s hard because you feel happy. You feel so excited for your daughter, but at the same time, it’s tempered because you know that somebody else is hurting because of that.” Alexa and Todd are also thankful for the friends, family and community members who have offered their support and held “We Got the Beat,” a concert, dinner and silent auction on Oct. 12 to benefit Children’s Organ Transplant Association in honor of Kayla. As of Oct. 15, more than $21,000 has been raised to assist with transplant-related expenses that are not covered by medical insurance. “The outpouring of support has been completely humbling and amazing,” Todd said. “The work, the time and the energy our friends and family have committed to try and help us has been unbelievable.” “I understand why they support us and they do everything they do,” Alexa added. “This could happen to anyone.” For more information about Kayla and to donate, visit

‘Welcome Home’ Kayla A “Welcome Home” gathering was held Oct. 13 for Kayla Jane LeMoine, a Carmel Valley child who recently had a heart transplant. The event was held at the Carmel Valley Recreation Center. On Oct. 12, “We Got the Beat!”, a concert, dinner, and silent auction was also held to benefit Children’s Organ Transplant Association in honor of Kayla (see story above). The event was held at Baleen Restaurant, Paradise Point. Kayla was 11 months old when she received a new heart on July 18 at UCLA Medical Center. Funds are being raised to assist with the many transplant-related expenses that are not covered by medical insurance. Photos/Jon Clark. For photos online, visit

COURAGE continued from page 8 of our freedoms? If we don’t fear losing those rights and freedoms, then have we lost the impetus to fight for justice, equality and truth? The Malala Fund Malala is the youngest person ever nominated for the Noble Peace Prize honor and was chosen to grace the cover of the April 29, 2013 issue of Time magazine, where she was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Losing the Nobel Peace Prize was a bitter blow for many around the world who believe there is nothing comparable to a 16-year-old assassination survivor who regained her life and renewed her fight in the face of continued death threats for the right of young girls to a full education free of fear, intimidation and harassment. The only people happy about her loss of the Nobel Peace Prize are the Taliban who continue to target her. According to NBC News, “The Pakistani Taliban called the decision ‘very good news’ and praised the committee for ‘not selecting this immature girl for this



October 17, 2013 famous award,’ according to a statement by spokesman Shahidullah Shahid. …‘If we get another chance, we will definitely kill her and that will make us feel proud,’ Shahid said.” But not all Pakistanis are intimidated by the radical Taliban. From the same story, Pakistan’s prime minister Nawaz Sharif told the country’s state TV station, “Malala is a beacon of light for and an example to be emulated by others for education.” The Malala Fund, where donations are gratefully accepted, is devoted to advancing her cause. The website [] explains the purpose of the fund: “There are 600 million adolescent girls in the developing world. They are an undeniable force for social and economic impact. But only if given the opportunity. Around the world, girls are denied a formal education because of social, economic, legal and political factors. And in being denied an education, society loses one of its greatest and most powerful resources. “The Malala Fund aims to change that. Education

empowers girls to raise their voices, to unlock their potential, and to demand change. The Malala Fund’s solutions are grounded in inspired innovation: they are girl-centric approaches to education that support the fund’s goal of creating a world where every girl reaches her true potential.” Because of fanatic religious movements and repressive regimes that consider women and girls subservient chattel, Malala and young girls like her who want little more than the right to go to school without fear for their safety, risk their lives exercising that basic right. Despite the trauma she has suffered, she is determined to continue her struggle. “One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world,” she said in her triumphant speech in July at the United Nations. As she fights for girls’ equality and the right to education, Malala’s insightful wisdom, tenacity and bravery are extraordinary qualities in one so young who has been through so much. With her crooked smile, soft eyes, lovely laugh and brilliant understanding of the power of education, Ma-

lala is the ultimate symbol of poise, grace and humility, with an astonishing ability to change the world in profound ways. We are privileged to have Malala in our lives, speaking as our conscience and awakening humanity to the scourge of too much brutality, intolerance and injustice in the world. Malala recognizes her tenuous future, yet the courage of her convictions remains steady. As she says, “I think of it often and imagine the scene clearly. Even if they come to kill me, I will tell them what they are trying to do is wrong, that education is our basic right.” — Marsha Sutton can be reached at SuttComm@san.

TPHS Foundation to host annual Teacher Mini Grant Night Oct. 23 The Torrey Pines High School Foundation will hold its annual Teacher Mini Grant Night on Wednesday, Oct. 23 from 6- 7:30 p.m. in the TPHS gymnasium. Parents will have the opportunity to donate directly to their students’ classrooms to fund specific requests submitted by teachers. “Each year, TPHS teachers submit Mini Grant applications for their classrooms and the current wish list amounts to $20,000,” states Foundation Director, Bobbi Karlson. “This amount represents requests from all departments such as English, Special Education, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, World Languages, and Visual and Performing Arts, just to name a few. “ Event Chairs Germana Sanna and Cinda Kemper understand the importance of this program. “Because school budgets are so tight, teachers look for additional funding for items ranging from school and office supplies to electronics and technology”, says Kemper. “We rely on our Torrey Pines parents to fund these items and enrich the classroom experience for all students.” Anastasia Kokkinis, TPHS AVID and English teacher, finds this program invaluable. “As teachers, we undoubtedly spend our own money from time to time on supplies; but Foundation Mini Grants allow for more significant educational experiences, especially with curriculum, documentaries, and art supplies for community service projects,” states Kokkinis. “We are so appreciative of all the money raised on our behalf that allows us to do what we do best.” Teacher Mini Grant Night will feature food from area restaurants such as Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza and Woody’s Solana Beach, as well as entertainment by the TPHS Cheer Squad, Dance Team and the new TP Improv group. Admission is $10. To attend the event, please contact the Foundation office at (858) 793-3551 or go to for more information. Teacher Mini Grant Night Invitations were sent to TPHS families in the fall edition of the Foundation newsletter. Anyone who is not able to attend the event is also welcome to donate by downloading and submitting the form on the Foundation website.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion; More letters, pages 19-20 Solana Beach City Council is getting a bum rap The backers of the so-called “Party Policy Initiative” for the Fletcher Cove Community Center have placed the Solana Beach City Council in a very difficult position, essentially holding a gun to their head to adopt their plan as is, or go to an expensive special election. These same backers intentionally timed the submission of their signatures to require a special election – despite the $200,000-$250,000 price tag on such a scenario. Had they held onto their signatures and submitted them just a few weeks later, their Initiative could have been part of the general election, at a fraction of the cost. Now, these same Party Policy backers are trying to place the blame and the cost of the special election at the City Council’s feet. The City Council was very thoughtful in coming up with the current use policy for the Fletcher Cove Community Center. The current policy weighs desire to use the facility for private events, with concerns regarding the impact to beach access, parking, the close proximately to the local family park, and noise, safety and traffic concerns. The current council use policy is for a trial period and can be amended as needed by the City Council. But because the Party Policy backers want their way or the highway, they aren’t willing to let the current use policy play out. The backers have used deep pockets and deceptive tactics to get their way. Paid signature gatherers misrepresented the facts when collecting signatures and high-paid campaign attorneys from San Francisco are behind the glossy postcards and emails blaming the City Council for the cost of the special election. After misleading the public into signing a petition for an election and intentionally timing the submission of the signatures to require an expensive special election, they are trying to blackmail the City Council into adopting the initiative outright in order to avoid the cost of the special election that they, the backers of the initiative themselves, orchestrated! And now the sponsors are backpedaling, claiming they “didn’t know” about the special election. Really? This small group consists of two former mayors and some very politically savvy individuals. Really? They didn’t know? Councilmember Thomas Campbell was right at last week’s meeting when he said, “They clearly did this on purpose, and they knew what they were doing.” So what’s the problem with adopting the initiative outright? For one thing, the Party Policy Initiative, as it is currently drafted, is a bad law. And if the City Council adopts the petition outright, neither the current City Council, nor any future City Council, could modify a single element of the policy – even for public safety concerns. Secondly, the backers of this initiative are setting a dangerous precedent for the city – basically saying one can deceive Solana Beach voters and blackmail the City Council, as long as one has the money (and lack of moral compass) to do so. Solana Beach voters are too smart for these deceptive tactics. Don’t let the deep-pocketed minority trying to commandeer our community center set the tone for future politics in our charming beach town. Debra Hart, Solana Beach

SB City Council should be applauded Kudos to the Solana Beach City Council members who spoke out at the Oct. 9 City Council meeting and exposed the truth about the origins of the Party Policy Group, the small group that forced the special election and the individuals that are funding the group’s campaign. I have attended numerous council meetings over the last two years and listened carefully to the pros and cons of renting out the Fletcher Cove Community Center (FCCC) for private parties. At those meetings, I watched members of the party policy group repeatedly demand that their specific policy be adopted by our City Council. After listening to all sides, scrutinizing city laws and reviewing environmental studies, the City Council developed a use policy for private parties at FCCC. The City Council’s policy can be amended if necessary. Unwilling to compromise, the Party Policy Group has stubbornly refused to accept anything short of their own version of a party policy, even though studies proved that it will have negative impacts on the Fletcher Cove area. The Party Policy group has repeatedly commented at council meetings and in the press that they want the people to vote on their specific policy, so they filed for an initiative. The initiative sponsors and their paid signature gatherers used misinformation and deceptive tactics to get voters to sign petitions to force a special election. And now, with the special election looming, the group’s leader says they never wanted a special election and instead they want the council to adopt their policy outright! This is just more double-talk from the group that refuses to accept the blame for causing the costly special election. The council made it clear that adopting the initiative in order to sidestep the costs of a special election will set the party policy rules in stone. The council won’t have the authority to make changes to the policy, even if there are problems. The means to modify the initiative would be through an election. Further, it will set a terrible precedent for others to use the threat of a special election to force the council to meet their demands. Why did the group’s financier hire an out-of-town election attorney to find ways around disclosing campaign donations and expenditures? Someone paid for the initiative filing fees, the signature gatherers and the slick mailer recently sent out on behalf of the Party Policy Group. Why the lack of transparency over a party policy? There is obviously more at stake for some members of the Party Policy Group, and as several council members implied, it’s a power play. Please get all the facts before you take a firm position on this issue. There is more going on than meets the eye. I applaud our City Council for boldly calling out the deceptive tactics being used by the group that forced this special election on our city.

SB City Council out of control Listening to the Solana Beach City Council discussing the Fletcher Cove Community Center on Oct. 9 was an appalling, disgraceful and the worst example of public officials in action that I have ever seen. The issue was largely to do with the initiative that has been circulated, signed and certified for a public vote to provide reasonable use permitting for the community center. Over two years of waiting for the City Council to decide on a use permit, the Friends of the Fletcher Cove Community Center (FCCC) decided in July to go to the registered voters with an initiative of their own to get the issue to closure. The issue has drawn so much attention that the petitioners gathered more than 1,000 signatures in less than two weeks. They had no idea that this had such broad appeal, and by the end of the month, there were more than 2,000 signatures gathered. The required amount of signatures to qualify for the ballot is 15 percent of the registered voters, which is just a little more than 1,300. Having reached and surpassed that number, the petitions were submitted for certification to the city clerk and then to the San Diego County Registrar of Voters. The petition signatures were certified 30 days later at the end of September. The timing was such that the initiative also qualified for a Special Election. Did the FCCC plan it that way? No, they had no idea that they could gather that number of signatures that quickly. Remember, the real timing of all of this was in the hands of the City Council who took two years to study ($32,000 for consultants and staff time) the project and started with proposed fees of $300 plus per hour for use, no alcohol, no parking on the public streets nearby, and very limited activity for the community center — all causing concern for many residents. Finally, the fees came down and some beer and wine was allowed (two drinks per event), but then it came with even more onerous restrictions and less available usage for weekend rentals. Now the City Council has a choice: either go to a costly special election in January or adopt the initiative’s reasonable language for the community center use permit. The council members obviously didn’t like their choices, hence the nasty tongue-lashing and labeling of individual citizens and taxpayers as liars, deceitful, vultures, disgusting, black mailers, etc. from the dais at the meeting. One person on the council even went so far as to say: “Political vultures who want power” and then named one respected woman in the audience as liar several times over. I, too, was called out for not currently living in Solana Beach even though I still own property and pay taxes in the city, having lived and raised my family there for 33 years, served for 14 years on the Solana Beach School Board and 14 more years on the Solana Beach City Council. I now live in a neighboring community, but my heart is still in Solana Beach, where I still shop, visit friends and volunteer for several organizations. Well now, if you want to see this for yourself, you can view the council meeting on the city’s website. Look under “Public Meetings,” then go to the Oct. 9 City Council video and council discussion, which starts at 1 hour and 44 minutes into the video. These are your elected officials, and with one possible exception, badly in need of a lesson in decorum and manners for public officials. I sure hope city funds are not wasted on any more studies or a special election, and a reasonable use permit can be adopted. However, with the current dysfunctional attitude at City Hall, who knows – the ball is in their court. The initiative isn’t asking for anything new, just reinstating what was expected to continue, reasonable permitted uses for our Fletcher Cove Community Center after citizens donated. Marion Dodson

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

A two-Dem runoff for SD Mayor?

One Paseo PR—Lipstick on a Pig, Part 2

BY GORDON CLANTON Politics, like rust, never sleeps. Politics is a year-around affair, especially in San Diego. Because of the resignation of Mayor Bob Filner, city voters will go to the polls in a special election Nov. 19. Mail ballots will go out Oct. 24 – and perhaps two-thirds of the voting will be by mail. Based on recent polling, most observers expect a runoff between newly Democratic former Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher (32 percent) and Republican Councilman Kevin Faulconer (28 percent). Although the Democratic Party endorsed Councilman David Alvarez (20 percent), many influential Dems are assuming that Fletcher will be their candidate in the runoff and some are openly supporting Fletcher in the first round. The mayoral race is nominally non-partisan, but everyone knows both major parties will bring major resources to the contest. The candidates who move on to the expected runoff will be the two top vote-getters, regardless of party. Is there a plausible path to a two-Democrat runoff? Only if two conditions are met. (1) Former City Attorney Mike Aguirre (8 percent) must drop out and throw his support to Alvarez – as Bruce Coons has done. With the vote that might have gone

In last week’s [issue of this newspaper], a letter to the editor characterized the One Paseo PR campaign as “Lipstick on a Pig.” That phrase captured the essence of glamorizing cosmetic features of the project, but another aspect of that is trying to downplay, divert attention from, or even omit key negative impacts from the project. One case in point is the One Paseo Traffic Study which provides hundreds of pages of data and conclusions, but carefully omits key logical data points which would clearly illuminate serious impacts from the project. The traffic study projects traffic for the key road segment approaching the I-5 freeway:

To briefly explain: this road segment has a traffic-carrying capacity of 60,000 Average Daily Traffic. Level of Service D represents traffic between 80 percent and 90 percent of carrying capacity, deemed by City policy as the minimum acceptable LOS. Other sources characterize LOS D as resulting in periodic breakdowns in traffic flow during rush hours. LOS F is 100 percent of carrying capacity, and is characterized by very frequent breakdowns in traffic, extension of rush hours periods, and drivers seeking alternate routes to their destinations-- further congesting these routes as well. The data above plotted on the applicable time line is presented in the graph below:

to Aguirre, Alvarez has a chance of edging into the second spot and pushing Faulconer out of the runoff. Even if Fletcher is the eventual winner, he would be pulled to the left by a contest with Alvarez, as he would be pulled to the right in a runoff with Faulconer. (2) The Democrats will need to raise voter turnout above the historically low levels of most special municipal elections. They might do this by pointing out that this special election is special. It will determine whether we salvage some parts of the progressive vision that brought Bob Filner to power or let the city slide back under the control of downtown special interests and the Republican establishment. In the end, we may have to settle for Fletcher – but maybe not. With a voter registration edge of 40 to 27 percent, the Democrats have a shot at taking Faulconer out in the primary – but only if Aguirre drops out. Friends tell me, “Mike will never drop out.” But perhaps he will, if enough Dems tell him he should: “Mike, you cannot win the second spot. You can only be a spoiler who prevents Alvarez from finishing ahead of Faulconer. Please step aside for the good of the party.” Gordon Clanton teaches Sociology at San Diego State University. He welcomes comments at gclanton@mail.

Mr. Issa: Now is your chance to be courageous

The Long Term Cumulative (2030) scenario was based on an independent traffic study evaluating alternatives for improving the Interstate 5 and state Route 56 freeway connection, including a no-build, one connector and two connector alternatives. However, the One Paseo traffic study assumed only the two connector alternative with its corresponding lowest traffic projection. This alternative is currently planned to be built by 2030 — if it gets approved and obtains funding. What happens during the time period between the estimated One Paseo completion date in 2016 and the two connector alternative completion in 2030? Clearly, until either one or two connectors are constructed, the traffic would be the same as if no connector were built. These data points are approximated for the 14-year interim period in the graph below, using the no-build alternative traffic, plus the One Paseo traffic generation for this segment for 2030, just as the One Paseo traffic study did for 2030, but using the two connector alternative.

The resulting traffic approximated for the interim period after completion of One Paseo starts near 110 percent of LOS F and approaches an unbelievable 120 percent of LOS F! The traffic study omission of key data points and mischaracterization of key negative impacts represent another form of One Paseo PR’s “Lipstick on a Pig.” I think many people like some of the concepts contained in the mixed-use One Paseo, but they also know that it is possible to overbuild a community. Unfortunately, we have yet to see a clear, unambiguous and unbiased report from which the size and composition of a “right-sized” project could be determined where the negative impacts would not overwhelm the community. Bob Fuchs, Carmel Valley Resident

This is an open letter to Darrell Issa, R-Calif.: Why don’t you bring a clean CR to a vote, Mr. Issa, or have the Koch’s not given you permission yet? Has the minority Tea Party threatened to “primary” you in San Diego if you don’t do as they say? Well, you may be surprised that you are primary-ing yourself as you align with a party that is no longer speaking for rationality, but rather for extremism, dictated by a shrill far-right Tea Party minority. You are hurting Americans of all ages. Thanks to the shutdown of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), thousands of babies are going hungry and mothers are scrambling for food. Head Start programs were hit instantly, again making young children and women suffer. Veterans’ disability benefits and pensions are going to be delayed, and you saw the tragedy of deceased soldiers whose families could not get death benefits — even a soldier right here in San Diego. Older Americans cannot access Social Security and soon their benefits won’t arrive. The government shutdown has real impact on real people, something that seems to be lost on you and the GOP members who live in the glass bubble of Washington D.C. Even the Wall Street Journal’s own polls show the damage you are doing: Seventy percent of Americans say Republicans are putting politics ahead of what is best for the country. You are putting politics ahead of what is best for your district right here in San Diego. Mr. Issa, you have a chance to be courageous and stand up to the mob mentality in your party. Vote for a clean CR to reopen the government with no strings attached and refuse to play politics with the debt ceiling — let the U.S. Treasury make good on the bills that have been incurred by you and the congress. Now. Anne Farrell, Del Mar

I Am Retired – Gargoyles for One Paseo buildings In keeping with Kilroy’s theme of making Del Mar Heights Road into a tree-lined boulevard like the Champs Elysees, how about adding gargoyles to the One Paseo buildings? These stone statues are grotesque creatures that direct rainwater away from the rooftops. Gargoyle is derived from the root “gar,” which means “to swallow’.” This is very apropos as traffic will indeed swallow up Del Mar Heights commuters. In keeping with the recent oped, “Lipstick on a Pig,” the gargoyles could be “Flying Pigs.” “When pigs fly” is an adynaton, a way of saying that something will never happen, and is often used to scoff at over ambitious ideas. The Torrey Pines Community Planning Board cordially invited Kilroy staff to give a shortened version of their August “Benefits to Carmel Valley” meeting. Kilroy has clearly stated that One Paseo will attract customers from neighboring suburbs, within a 15-mile radius. At my age, it has become harder to bend over back ways, but I tried to make this a winwin situation. Kilroy said, “No” to our request since only Carmel Valley gets to vote to approve or deny the project. The Torrey Pines Board requested that our Councilwoman Sherri Lightner try to cajole Kilroy to make a presentation to the communities outside of Carmel Valley. Kilroy’s response was, “The One Paseo Team is currently preparing for the ‘Recirculation’ of the DEIR with three new alternatives. We (Kilroy) believe it is important that we stay focused on the Recognized Planning Group for Carmel Valley and their needs.” Once the Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report is available, the Torrey Pines Board will inform our residents and neighboring community groups about the traffic and environmental impacts of the three alternatives. In keeping with Kilroy’s philosophy, that only Carmel Valley has needs, the Torrey Pines Board will hold a meeting to discuss our needs. The Torrey Pines Board has learned over the many years of working with organizations — such as SANDAG, Caltrans and the 22nd District Agricultural Association — that major projects affect all of us. The Board understands that some areas are more impacted than others are, but under CEQA, the ripple effect must be considered. Dennis Ridz

San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Rick Schmitt’s Monthly Update 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 and facilities. BY RICK SCHMITT SDUHSD COMMON CORE TRANSITION UPDATE With the adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English/Language Arts and Mathematics, one of the first and most important decisions facing high school districts is the selection of a curricular pathway for high school mathematics. San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) is currently planning for a gradual & multi-year CCSS implementa-Rick Schmitt tion, beginning with the 2014-15 school year. The CCSS for high school mathematics include two different curricular pathways - the “Traditional” pathway and the “Integrated” pathway. Each pathway represents a different approach to understanding and teaching math. The Traditional curricular pathway organizes math curriculum into discrete sub-areas within the larger discipline of mathematics and the associated course sequence reflects this by separating the math curriculum into separate Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II courses. The Integrated curricular pathway approaches the various sub-disciplines of math as interrelated parts of a whole and therefore includes content from Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Statistics throughout a sequence of three courses (Integrated Math I, Integrated Math II, and Integrated Math III). The CCSS Math curriculum in grades K-8 is an integrated curriculum so the decision for high school districts centers on the curricular approach for high school math courses.

While the Traditional pathway is likely familiar to those who attended high school in the United States, an integrated curricular approach to mathematics is the dominant approach to teaching math in the rest of the world. Proponents of an integrated approach argue that it helps students see the natural inter-connections between different areas of mathematics and that the approach better reflects how mathematics is applied outside of the school setting. From engineering to personal finance to the construction of a backyard shed, “real world” problems almost always require us to appropriately apply different types of math simultaneously, rather than requiring only algebra or geometry in isolation from each other. Many mathematicians believe that helping students understand how the different sub-disciplines of math inter-relate and how to appropriately and simultaneously apply different types of math to solve complex problems is crucial to developing deep understanding and the practical application of mathematics among our students. Further, when students move through the Traditional pathway, there are extended gaps in time during which they do not study parts of math (i.e., a gap of a full year between Algebra I & Algebra II) leading to a lack of retention over time. Because an integrated approach teaches concepts from algebra, geometry, and statistics each year, there is less opportunity for students to “forget” what they’ve learned of each. Finally, the new standardized math assessment tied to the CCSS that all 11th graders will take, along with the various college math readiness assessments (SAT, ACT, & EAP), are all integrated summative math assessments - they do not test math knowledge and skills as separate disciplines, instead testing all of the areas of math collectively. The integrated approach to math is not a new concept. Not only has it been the dominant approach to teaching math outside of the United States for more than a century (including in all of the highest achieving countries in the world), but it is an approach that has been used by a number of districts throughout the United States for decades. Further, colleges and universities around the country have, and will continue to, view both the Integrated and Traditional pathways as rigorous and appropriate college preparatory math curricula. In April of 2013, the University of California took the unusual step of releasing a formal public statement in which the UC acknowledged that while the Traditional pathway is historically the more typical curricular approach in the U.S., the UC views the Integrated pathway as an equally viable and appropriate college preparatory curricular approach. Over the last several months, SDUHSD Math teachers have engaged in the study of the two different curricular pathways and discussed the advantages of each approach. Ultimately, the unanimous recommendation of our Math Department Chairs was to adopt the Integrated curricular pathway in our district. With this decision made, we have begun work on several key tasks: •UC Approval: We have begun work on submitting Integrated Math I, II, & III courses to the UC for formal approval. We anticipate approval this spring. •Instructional Materials: With new courses come new instructional materials and textbooks. We have begun the process of researching instructional materials and textbooks for the new Integrated courses for adoption for the 2014-15 school year. •Course Sequencing: We have begun discussion of the various course sequencing options from grades 7-12. Just as we do currently, we plan to continue to offer students standard college preparatory courses, honors/accelerated options, a full complement of Advanced Placement (AP) math courses, and opportunities for students to advance through course sequences more rapidly in order to allow access to advanced and AP courses earlier in the high school years. Additionally, we will continue to offer support and intervention courses for students who struggle with mathematics. Our course sequences and options will be completed by mid-December. •Transition Plan: Also by December, we will have a plan for how to transition our current middle school students into the new high school course sequences. Middle and high schools students who are currently in Geometry or higher courses will continue through our existing traditional course sequences as we phase this sequence out as our current students graduate over the next four years. •Alignment with Feeder Districts: We are working closely with the five districts that send

students to our district for middle and high school to ensure that our curricula and course sequences are aligned allowing for smooth academic transitions for our incoming students. Those districts are Cardiff, Del Mar, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, and Solana Beach. In the coming months we will conduct a number of public meetings at our schools and in conjunction with our feeder districts to inform our students and families about the changes inherent to the Common Core standards for both English/Language Arts and Mathematics, with particular focus on the changes in our math course sequences. Our transition to the Common Core standards will be a gradual, multi-year process accomplished through the provision of ongoing high quality professional development for all of our teachers and through productive experimentation and collaboration among our teachers. We are excited about this new approach to educating our young people and firmly believe that the 21st century skills emphasized in our new standards will prepare our students for post-secondary success. We will announce our public meetings through this publication, the SDUHSD website (, individual school websites, Facebook, Twitter, area elementary district websites, and via email to our 12,000 plus SDUHSD families.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion What could have been The little building, with its recent makeover of cornflower blue accented with silver, is perched high atop a bluff. Its modern lines stand bold and its shiny glass doors open to a sweeping view of the shimmering Pacific Ocean. Sea breeze fills the air while pelicans, in their classic “V” configuration, glide overhead in the blue sky pocked with puffs of white. If buildings could talk, I would think it would encourage us all to “just chill.” This little house on the hill, the Fletcher Cove Community Center, is at the heart of a heated battle pitting the residents of Solana Beach against each other over regulations governing its use. I once believed everyone involved had only the best intentions, and disagreements and differences boiled down to perspective. Unfortunately, my belief was grounded in naiveté. The community center could have been subjected to a one-year trial period to “test the waters.” The temporary use period was affordable, reasonable, practical and commendably the basis for a compromise among many differing opinions. It almost seemed too good to be true. It was. Apparently, a number of the founders of a group called the Friends of the Fletcher Cove Community Center did not share the desire to be reasonable or practical, nor were they in the mood to compromise. With well over $100,000 of their donor dollars invested in the center, they launched a top dollar campaign to collect signatures under the guise the signers would get an opportunity to vote on the use policy governing the

community center. The campaign involved hired signature gatherers, some of which accosted families attending a city-sponsored family event known as Beach Blanket Movie Night. Once the petition was filed, the group quickly pulled the proverbial rug out from under the signers. Now, the group advocates for avoiding a special election due to exorbitant costs. “Don’t let the city use our precious tax dollars to fund a special election,” the glossy brochure nuances. What it does not say is that the city had already agreed to a compromise, now usurped by the petition, which would have avoided a special election. What it also doesn’t say is if the so-called “Friends” would have held their petition couple of weeks, such a vote would have fallen within a normal election cycle, bringing the high cost of the special election, billed at $200,000, down tenfold. We could have had a trial period. We could have avoided a special election. Now, thanks to our “Friends,” we have a city that doesn’t have many options: Accept the original overuse initiative or spend exorbitant dollars on a special election. Rather alarmingly, the original initiative, once implemented, cannot be amended except through a vote, even if a public safety issue is badly in need of being addressed or remedied. Perhaps friends shouldn’t let “Friends” win by playing dirty politics in our city? Perhaps our “Friends” should have tried to listen to the little house on the hill and “just chill”? Jill Martin

Don’t diminish the character of Solana Beach The once pleasant, quiet bedroom community of Solana Beach has turned into a political hot mess! Thanks to information revealed by council members at the Oct. 9 City Council meeting, Solana Beach residents now know that the people who proposed, crafted and paid for the Fletcher Cove Community Center Party Policy Initiative are seasoned campaign veterans with more time and money than scruples. They have a financial backer who is willing to throw buckets of money at high-priced political analysts and costly San Francisco election attorneys. Where does that leave Solana Beach residents who just want to know the facts before they vote at the ballot box? In their relentless quest to get their special election, this group lied to Solana Beach residents. They paid professional signature gatherers to misrepresent facts and sent out deceiving mailers and slanted emails, all in an effort to confuse townspeople. Now that the sponsors of the Party Policy Initiative have forced the special election, they are flipping their tactics. At last week’s council meeting they urged the council not to let the citizens vote on the policy and instead asked the council to adopt the policy outright! Talk about masters of spin! The real reason behind their shift is an unwillingness to accept responsibility for causing the special election. Councilman David Zito got it right when he said it’s a choice between, “doing what’s right versus trying to save a lot of money. And what’s right is to let the people have their say.” Do you like the direction Solana Beach has gone the last several years? I sure do! And I fear that if this initiative is adopted we will be like every other loud, obnoxious Southern California beach town. Access to parks, beach and bluff areas will be diminished and the character of Solana Beach, a beautiful community like no other in Southern California, will be forever compromised. Apparently, the sponsors of the Party Policy Initiative are not concerned about beach and park access or our little beach town’s community character. As we all learned at last week’s City Council meeting, some members of the small, well-funded Party Policy Group care more about their own political gain than they do about the actual community center. For a small faction of their group, this is all politics and is all part of their relentless quest for power. What’s on the horizon? Will it be endless strip malls and oversized development in our small town? Be forewarned. If we are not careful, the driving forces behind this Party Policy Initiative will buy the new guard into office. The unsavory tactics we’ve seen so far are only a taste of what’s to come.

TPHS Boys Lacrosse Team supports honorary team member Jose Montaño at 1st Annual 5K walk for the Jose Montaño Foundation The Torrey Pines High School Boys Lacrosse Team participated in the 1st Annual 5K walk for the Jose Montaño Foundation on Oct. 13. Jose Montaño is a 12-year-old young man undergoing chemotherapy treatment for brain cancer. He has been battling Medulloblastoma (a rare type of malignant cancer) for 27 months. Since he was diagnosed on April 2011, he has had brain surgery to remove the tumor, 30 cycles of radiation, and is currently on his 19th chemotherapy cycle. “Over his 12 years of life he has taught his family, friends and everyone around him the true meaning of having faith, looking at the bright side of life, unselfishness, giving from the heart, never losing hope but, most importantly, believing in himself.” Jose is an honorary team member for the TPHS Boys Lacrosse Team. He is #11 and is often seen standing on the sidelines of TP home games supporting the Boys Lacrosse Team. Jose was “adopted” into the Torrey Pines Boys Lacrosse Team through the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation. FOJ provides friendship, love and support to children and their families battling brain cancer ( Jose recently started his own foundation where he donates snack bags and toys to children and their families at Children’s Hospital while they are at the hospital getting treatments. The Jose Montaño Foundation was created to continue with Jose’s wish and give from the heart. The foundation bring toys to the Hematology/Oncology department at Rady’s Childrens’ Hospital, as well as healthy lunch snacks to parents of hospitalized patients who might not have time or money to buy a meal due to having to keep an eye on their kids. At Jose’s elementary school (Berry), the foundation recognizes students who have perfect attendance during the school year and also on June 2013 the foundation awarded its first scholarship to a 6th grader for demonstrating exemplary behavior both at school and in the community.

Del Mar native coming home for ‘America’s Got Talent’ tour show Oct. 22 BY KRISTINA HOUCK Del Mar native Taylor Williamson will perform in San Diego for the first time since he placed second on the hit NBC competition series “America’s Got Talent.” The 27-year-old comedian, along with winner Kenichi Ebina and other fan favorites, will take the stage Oct. 22 at the Civic Theatre when the nationwide “America’s Got Talent” tour stops in San Diego. “My family will get to come see me,” Williamson said. “I can prove I’m not a failure.” Although Williamson said he didn’t think he would make it past the early rounds, he survived a variety of elimination shows and made it all the way to the show’s season finale, where he performed one final comedy act alongside “Inside the Actor’s Studio” host James Lipton. Although Williamson and dancer Ebina were the last two contestants standing, Ebina won the $1 million prize and headline show in Las Vegas. “I didn’t think I’d get that far at all because my comedy is really stupid and silly,” Williamson said. “I never thought that people would like me that much. “It’s really special to me that I got that far not because some producer or casting director liked me, but because people invested in me and voted for me. I’m here because people made it happen. That’s the most special thing ever.” Williamson, who grew up in Del Mar, began performing at The Comedy Store in La Jolla when he was a student at Torrey Pines High School. Now based in Los Angeles, Williamson said he looks forward to returning to San Diego for the roughly hour and a half show later this month.

Local world-record traveler returns from another unique journey

Photo courtesy of NBC. “I’m performing with some of the most talented people I’ve ever met,” said Williamson, who has about an 18-minute family-friendly set during the show. “We get to perform in giant theaters in front of thousands of people who came to see us.” In addition to the tour, Williamson is set to return to San Diego again when he performs Dec. 19-22 at the American Comedy Company. It will be one of Williamson’s many stops on his own national tour. He’s also developing a comedy special. “It’s really weird going from not getting bookings to performing for thousands of people who are happy to see me,” Williamson said. “I’m getting all these amazing opportunities thanks to the show. I went from having nothing to do to being way too busy. I’m appreciative.” For more information about the tour and to purchase tickets, visit For more information about Williamson, visit

(Clockwise from above left) Bill Altaffer; Kiev; Yalta; North Korea. Courtesy photos BY KAREN BILLING Carmel Valley resident and world-record traveler Bill Altaffer recently went around the world in 50 days. His trip included travels through Russia, China and North Korea. His journey began in St. Petersburg, Russia, with a small group of six Americans through Valor Tours, supported by MIR Corporation in Seattle. The group was on a 29-day tour of the 13 “Hero Cities” of Russia — Ukraine and Belarus. The cities were honored as Hero Cities for the unique bravery of their citizens; the former Soviet Union lost close to 27 million people in World War II. Traveling by train, Altaffer saw the “fairy tale glow of lights on Russian Orthodox domes” in Moscow; Volgograd, the former Stalingrad where one of the most important battles resulted in Hitler’s first major defeat on the Eastern Front; and Novorossiysk where, in 1942, a small unit of Soviet

soldiers were able to defend the beachhead for 225 days. They were the first American tour group to visit the Sudak Fortress in Kerch on the Crimean peninsula. The extensive underground fortress was built using proceeds from the sale of Alaska. Altaffer visited the Kiev concentration camp Babi Yar where more than 30,000 Jews were murdered and Minsk, the capital of Belarus, “a living testimony to the atrocities of WWII where half of its population perished.” While he visited many war museums and memorials, the Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War was the largest of its kind in the world and especially sobering was the Yama Memorial (the Ditch) that memorialized 5,000 Jews killed in 1942. From Minsk, Altaffer flew 14 hours via Dubai to Zhengzhou, China. “We were among the

few foreigners in the interior of China,” Altaffer said. “If you have not been to China in the last few years, it has changed. There are more modern and clean attractions everywhere. Resort hotels are everywhere and there are many top restaurants.” His group visited Luoyang, the home of Kung Fu at the Shaolin Temple and Mount Huashan, one of the five sacred Taoist mountains. “Narrow stone stairs, some with dizzying vistas, lead up the steep crags and temples, statues and pavilions are tucked among the rocks,” Altaffer said of Mt. Huashan. They flew to Lijiang in the Yunnan Province, an alpine hamlet near the northern tip of the Himalayas, where they saw the Black Dragon Pool Park with 500 varieties of flowers and China’s first national park Pudacuo, which has wetlands surrounding two lakes and is

home to more than 100 endangered species. They drove to Zhongdian and to the Tiger Leaping Gorge above the turbulent Yangtze River, then took a four-hour flight through Kunming to the ancient city of Ping Yao. Ping Yao is surrounded by a city wall 6.4 km long with 72 ornate towers, known as the first city in North China and no vehicles are allowed in the city. From Beijing, they flew to North Korea, where Altaffer has been five times. Their Korean International Travel Agency guides met them at the airport for their 10-day trip, the limit for Americans. They saw Ancient Buddist temples, the 105-story pyramid-shaped Ryugyong Hotel and watched the Arirang show known as the Mass Games, recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest spectacle

This program is referred to as Wheel Day and includes Art, Physical Education, Science, Technology, plus supporting materials and teacher’s salaries.

Reigning Halloween queens are Michelle Becker and Halle Shilling. Kudos to Shannon Kearns and Monica Fernandez who will succeed them next year. Assisting them will be volunteer parents, students and school staff at this beloved event. “A new game debuting this year is the Human Hamster Ball Obstacle Course,” said Becker. “Get into a human-sized hamster ball and try your best to navigate around an obstacle course. Should be very fun to participate in, maybe more fun to watch.” “We have everyone’s favorite games again,” adds Shilling. “Haunted House, Cakewalk, Toilet Toss, Photo Booth, etc. There are 28 game booths, a silent auction with featured teacher and principal outings and a raffle offering about 150 surprise items.” Hot auction items are: one year personalized reserved parking at Solana Vista; front row seats for Solana Vista’s Third Grade Play; Skyline’s Talent Show; and the Sixth Grade Graduation ceremony with reserved parking. “I’ve been going to the carnival before I was [a] 1 year old. Every year I help with set-up and I can never wait until it starts,” said Megan Johnson. “When I was 4 years old, I went into the Haunted House and I was so scared but my brothers were with me and I felt safe. I’m so excited to work in the Haunted House this year as a sixth grader. I love the carnival!” “It’s truly a community event,” said Becker. “SB Little

Canyon Crest Academy welcomes new theater coordinator

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY KRISTINA HOUCK From the actors on stage to the stagehands behind the scene, Amy Blatt knows it takes a wide range of talents to pull off a successful production. As a junior at University of San Diego High School, she was assistant director and then stage manger of the school’s fall and spring shows. “My theater teacher took a chance on me,” Blatt said. “He gave me these roles of responsibility and I stepped up to the plate. I really appreciated that he gave me those opportunities, and I just felt like that’s what I wanted to do.” Now 28, the San Diego resident is starting her seventh year as a teacher and her first year as theater coordinator of Canyon Crest Academy’s Envision. Envision offers day classes and after-school programs for cinema, dance, digital and fine art, instrumental music, theater, and vocal music. “My dream job was to be a high school theater teacher, and I’ve been able to teach high school theater for seven years,” said Blatt, who most recently worked as theater director at San Diego High School. “I feel like I’m really fortunate.” After graduating from high school, Blatt attended local community colleges and later transferred to San Diego State University. She has been the stage manager for several productions at Grossmont College, SDSU, Starlight Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse and San Diego Repertory Theatre. Shortly after graduating with a bachelor’s in general theater arts, Blatt landed a teaching position at San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts. She later taught at Lincoln High School before she was transferred to San Diego High School. “I definitely want to bring my personal background and experience to manage multiple productions and properly prepare my students for the next step,” Blatt said. “Whether they are planning to or not, I want them to be prepared their senior year to go to a conservatory or a university of performing arts.” With four main productions, Blatt has a rigorous season planned. She will direct two of the productions and guest di-

Amy Blatt Courtesy photo rectors will direct the other two. In addition to working with her students, Blatt said she is thrilled to work with the parents who support the program through the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation. The nonprofit parentled organization strengthens the Carmel Valley school’s academics, athletics and arts programs through financial, volunteer and community support. “I’ve worked in creative schools, but never in this capacity, as far as the parent involvement,” Blatt said. “Envision probably

wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for parent donations and help to fund guest artists. Our season wouldn’t be as big as it is.” The season will open with “The Children’s Hour” on Oct. 24 at the school’s Black Box Theater. Directed by Jeremy Sewell, the drama is set in an all-girls boarding school managed by two women. Blatt will direct the fall’s second production, “Biloxi Blues.” A semi-autobiographical play by Neil Simon, “Biloxi Blues” features a mostly boy cast and takes place during World War II. The play runs Nov. 6-16 at the Canyon Crest Proscenium Theater. In the spring, Blatt has planned Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” followed by “Les Misérables,” which will be produced in collaboration with the school’s vocal music conservatory. “I love it here. It’s wonderful,” Blatt said. “I’m excited for everyone to come see our shows!” For more information about Envision at Canyon Crest Academy, visit www.


Del Mar Foundation features local filmmaker Noah Tafolla at next DMF Talks Oct. 28 The Del Mar Foundation (DMF) presents San Diego filmmaker, writer and producer Noah Tafolla as its next DMF Talks speaker. Join the creator of “Wonderland” and “Dining Out with Noah” as he shares stories and insider knowledge about local neighborhoods and towns. The event is free and will be held at the Powerhouse Community Center on Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. According to Tafolla, “San Diego is a great place to be. The problem is we get so busy, we don’t take the time to enjoy everything this place has to offer. So…I decided to take my camera and capture all I could.” Tafolla, a third generation Ocean Beach resident, explores and films San Diego neighborhoods in a personal way. He highlights the local sights, interviews members of the communities and shares his discoveries about their histories, hidden secrets and landmarks. His shows were originally featured on KPBS TV. Online reservations are required and may be made at through Thursday, Oct. 26.

Something old is new at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe BY KELLEY CARLSON he space that was formerly a ballroom at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe was recently converted into Morada, an elegant and sophisticated restaurant that still manages to be comfortably casual and welcoming. Vacationing families clad in jeans and T-shirts mingle with local residents gussied up for date night, dining on locally sourced California cuisine that’s suitable for all tastes. Guests who arrive through the main entrance walk across the polished hardwood floor of the bar and lounge, which is filled with glittering chandeliers, booths covered in Ikat fabric and its signature flower patterns, and picturesque landscape paintings. On weekends, customers gather at the bar to devour burgers while watching sports on TV, which is hidden behind glass during the remainder of the week. A wall with a built-in fireplace divides the bar from the equally grand main dining room. Photos of Rancho Santa Fe in its early days line the walls, a nostalgic tribute to the hotel’s history. Patrons are also welcome to indulge on Morada’s fare in the adjacent living room. There, they can casually sip vintages from California wineries while lounging in large leather chairs in front of the crackling fireplace. It’s quiet and intimate, enhanced by soft instrumental music and dim lighting. But to really experience Morada, Executive Chef Todd Allison recommends terrace dining, where visitors can gaze across the


On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story.

■ This week’s recipe:

Morada’s Seared Ahi Tuna & Citrus sprawling, landscaped lawn toward the heart of “The Ranch.” It’s an idyllic spot to watch hot air balloons soar during sunset while sharing a bottle of wine, perhaps getting cozy by one of the fire pits. “The patio has the best view in town,” Allison said. “It’s relaxing and very inviting.” Guests can augment their experience in a variety of ways – entrees, shared plates or a la carte. Allison takes a farm-to-table approach with his creations, using ingredients from his on-site garden, local farms and farmers markets throughout the region. He recommends sharing a couple of starters, perhaps the pan-roasted baby octopus and the steamed black Carlsbad mussels, before moving on to main courses such as the grilled Colorado lamb loin

Pan Roasted Ocean Trout is served over a slice of grilled green tomato and a bed of toasted red quinoa with saffron glaze. PHOTOS BY KELLEY CARLSON chops and the local honey-glazed Chilean sea bass. Then top off the meal with a dark chocolate pot de crème. Other menu items worth considering include the Golden Beet Salad with slices of citrus, sprinkled with white balsamic vinegar and bits of creamy Humboldt Fog cheese; the flaky pan-roasted ocean trout over a slice of grilled green tomato, resting on a bed of toasted red quinoa with saffron glaze; seared Ahi tuna street tacos with avocado mousse and cilantro slaw inside crispy shells; and the coconut panna cotta with a top layer of tropical fruit salsa, served with shortbread cookies. The children’s menu is a bit more standard with items such as chicken Alfredo, pizzas,

hamburgers, chicken fingers and mac ‘n’ cheese. While waiting for their food, kids can tap into their creative side by playing with complimentary neon-colored Wikki Stix, made of yarn and non toxic wax. Morada is also open for breakfast and lunch, offering dishes that range from bananas foster French toast and Dungeness crab eggs benedict to the ginger BBQ Mary’s free-range chicken sandwich and blackened Alaskan salmon. Reservations are recommended at the restaurant, especially on weekends, Allison noted. Much of the “rush” occurs when there is live entertainment — usually flamenco-style background music — from 6 to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

The Canyon Crest Academy Foundation is hosting a fundraiser to benefit Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) Athletics at the Doubletree Hotel on Oct. 28 from 5-8 p.m. The adult-only event will include Monday-Night Football, a silent auction and opportunity drawing as well as a no-host bar with hors d’oeuvres and beer tasting sponsored by Stone Brewing Co. Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) has been an achievement and performance leader throughout San Diego County and the state of California since it first opened its doors in 2004. In 2012, Newsweek ranked CCA the 78th best high school in the United States. CCA has the highest API score in San Diego County and CCA students are accepted into leading colleges and universities at a much higher rate than average. Yet funding per student is in the bottom 25 percent, at 17th out of 20 high school districts in California. The mission of the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation is to provide dedicated support for CCA educational and enrichment programs, including athletics, and to meet the gap in funding. The ongoing success of the CCA Athletic programs relies on continued support from families, friends, and the local community. Last year the CCA Foundation funded $267,145 for CCA Athletics to pay for assistant coaches, trainers, equipment, umpire/referee fees, tournament fees, pool rental, uniforms and travel. CCA’s student body has more than 800 athletes who compete on 21 sports teams under the CCA ‘Raven’ mascot. Since inception of CCA Athletics in 2004, the school continues to excel with more than 21 League Championships and California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Championship wins in 2009, 2012 and 2013. “CCA is proving to be not only one of the best academic high schools in the nation, but also a growing competitor in athletics,” said Tim Malott, CCA parent and 2013 chair of the Oktoberfest fundraiser. “Please join us on Oct. 28 when, as a community of parents, coaches, friends and neighbors, we celebrate 10 years of CCA athletics and generate the needed funding to support the growth of CCA Athletics.” Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door. Tickets can also be purchased in advance online at, (click on the Ravens logo, and scroll down to the Oktoberfest tickets listing.) If interested in donating items for the auction, or for additional questions, please contact Tim Malott, chair 2013 Oktoberfest to Benefit CCA Athletics, at (email) or (619-540-8600 mobile.) Visit

Beaming’s healthy yet delicious organic food helps people make a lifestyle change BY KAREN BILLING For most people, it is difficult to make something healthy that also tastes delicious. For most of her life, Solana Beach resident Lisa Odenweller has been trying to solve that problem and has found success with Beaming, her new convenient, healthy gourmet “superfood vitality bar” in Del Mar. The popular superfood spot serves up juices, smoothies and raw foods that are all organic, vegan, gluten-free and dairy free. “Since the day we opened, we kind of took off running, “ said Odenweller of the 10-month-old Beaming. “It’s been wonderful to see the community embrace us.” One of the reasons why Beaming has done so well is that it had already built a strong following with its raw food cleanses that were available online. Odenweller said her cleanses became popular because they redefined what a cleanse could be: Rather than focus on depravation, the cleanse was done with “nutritionally powerful and powerfully delicious” juices, raw foods and smoothies. They became more than a cleanse but a lifestyle change —whereas with a typical cleanse people couldn’t wait to get off it, with Beaming they were invigorated to continue to feel good and realized what they put in their body made a big difference. The lifestyle that Beaming promotes is one of balance. Odenweller herself is not vegan but believes that everyone can benefit from more vegetables. “Everyone’s body is different and I believe in finding a balance that works for them. I don’t preach one way,” Odenweller said. Odenweller has always had an interest in wellness, health and exercise. She was a “mix-master” in the kitchen, taking on challenges such as making a chocolate chip cookie that is healthy but still tastes good. As a foodie, she was never formerly trained but blessed with a good palate. In developing a cleanse to share with the public, she enlisted the help of “Super Cleanse” author Adina Niemerow and raw food chef Matthew Kenney; together, they played around with recipes and figured out ways to make raw food hip and cool, how to take really good, healthy

Beaming founder Lisa Odenweller. Courtesy photo things and put them together — ingredients such as almond milk, chia, kale, maca, mint and raw honey. Beaming launched its first cleanse to the public in November 2011. Its signature cleanse is four days which Odenweller feels is the perfect length of time, a “complete mind and body reset.” The four-day cleanse includes daily two juices, a smoothie, raw soup, superfood elixir and a raw dish or salad.

Beaming also has a three-day option which is its version of the juice cleanse with a daily menu of three cold- pressed juices, raw dish or salad, an elixir, almond milk with protein, and a Beaming protein bite. Beaming’s one-day “Reset” cleanse is perfect coming off a weekend to start the week off right, let the body heal and restore balance. It is its most restrictive cleanse, but still includes a raw dish or salad, four cold pressed juices, almond milk, a Beaming bite and a protein blend. Odenweller said they’ve had many success stories with their cleanses. “[People] wake up to the power of food as medicine,” Odenweller said. Odenweller said that eating nutritious and delicious food helps people to have better mental clarity, their inflammation goes down, their mood stabilizes and they become more mindful about what they put into their mouths — Odenweller says it’s a personal victory when she can wean someone off Diet Coke. The superfood store in Del Mar is a way to make this kind of lifestyle conve-

niently available to the public, according to Odenweller. It prompts many exclamations of “I never knew raw food could taste like this,” Odenweller said. “We expose people to superfoods but in a playful, energetic and delicious way,” Odenweller said. The menu changes daily but they always have quinoa, a farmers market salad, a raw food entrée and a raw soup. Sample items have been raw lasagna with zucchini replacing the noodles, and a cashew cheese sauce or ceviche made of coconut meat instead of octopus. Beaming’s walls are stocked with bottled coldpressed juices such as the Skinny Cooler with a spicy mix of pineapple, cucumber, mint and jalapeño, and the What’s Up Doc which, according to Odenweller, promotes eye health and immunity with carrot, orange, ginger and turmeric. Behind the bar is where Beaming’s smoothies are made to order and can be customized with superfood boosters such as almond butter, kale, berries, probiotics, cacao nibs or one of Beaming’s raw plant protein blends.

Beaming makes all of its own almond milk on site for the smoothies. The High Five pairs that almond milk with a fruity mix of strawberry, banana, blueberry, raspberry and spinach. The Euphoria is known as “the happy one,” a mood and energy booster with almond milk, coconut water, Beaming protein, cherries, chia powder, banana, lucuma, coconut butter and date. The Rockstar is really popular with male customers, Odenweller said — the smoothie perfect for post workouts, promoting muscle recovery. Many of Beaming’s menu items are “super kid friendly,”such as its chia pudding and chocolate almond milk. “I’m a mom of three so I understand how hard it is to make healthy choices kidfriendly,” Odenweller said. It’s one of her personal missions to support families in living a healthy lifestyle and to see a child happily devouring an acai bowl “lights my soul more than anything”, she said. Odenweller also had a

Curate in Solana Beach offers hand-selected sunglasses and watches BY KRISTINA HOUCK As owners of a graphic design and website development agency, Matt Harding and Joe McDonald have worked with companies that sell a variety of products. Now, they’ve opened up their own fashion boutique, Curate Co., in Solana Beach. “We specialize in e-commerce and we wanted to take that expertise and open our own retail store,” said Harding, who lives in Carlsbad. Located on Cedros Avenue, Curate specializes in hand-selected sunglasses and watches. “We are curating a product,” Harding said. “We have a lot of stuff that’s not available in San Diego.” Harding, 38, and McDonald, 43, have been business partners for seven years. Harding, a graphic designer, and McDonald, a web developer, met when a mutual client hired them as freelancers. They later teamed up to launch Durrani Design in 2007. “We saw each other’s skills and what we could bring together,” Harding said. “Everything just seems to kind of have an ebb and flow of division. We come together and each bring our strong points to grow a new business.” Four years ago, the pair opened an online-only store called Skulls & Wings that offered sunglasses, watches and apparel. Harding and McDonald decided to open a physical store to offer brands that could only be sold in stores. They also hope to provide access to up-and-coming brands. “We’ve seen brands not able to make it because they weren’t given the opportunity or a chance in retail because they didn’t know the right reps or how to get in with the buy-

Photos/Kristina Houck ers, but the product is still really good,” Harding said. “We want to keep an eye out for those that could use the opportunity and see them succeed.” Curate opened about five months ago and recently moved to a new location on the corner of the same building. The roughly 550-square-foot space at 337 S. Cedros Ave., Suite A, has multiple windows and offers more product displays. From well-known brands like Ray-Ban to emerging brands like TAVAT, Curate offers a variety of brands and styles. Harding and McDonald choose all items they carry in their store. Other

brands include IVI, 9Five, Sabre, South Lane and Vestal. “With us, you can actually come in here and walk away with a brand you’ve never heard of and be confident in its mechanics and its function, and that the fashion that we’re providing is all over the place,” said Harding, who noted Curate was the first or one of the first stores in San Diego to carry TAVAT, IVI and Sabre. “You’re going to come here and find things that are hard to find, which I think is huge. We don’t want you to choose a particular one, we just want you to walk out feeling good.” For more information, call 760-230-5462 or visit Note: Business spotlights are developed through this newspaper’s advertising department in support of our advertisers.

Canyon Crest Academy Envision Theatre presents ‘The Children’s Hour’ Oct. 24 - Nov. 2 Canyon Crest Academy Envision Theatre will present “The Children’s Hour,� directed by Jeremy Sewell from Oct. 24 - Nov. 2 at the CCA Black Box Theatre. One of the great successes of distinguished writer Lillian Hellman, “The Children’s Hour� is a serious and adult play about two women who run a school for girls. After a malicious youngster starts a rumor about the two women, the rumor soon turns to scandal. As the young girl comes to understand the power she wields, she sticks by her story, which precipitates tragedy for the women. It is later discovered that the gossip was pure invention, but it is too late. Irreparable damage has been done.

Rady’s Auxiliary of Carmel Valley Unit Chair Edith Smith, Brooke Cosgrove, Di Goldschmidt

“Sounds of Hope for Children—Under the Stars,” presented by the Carmel Valley Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital, raised more than $300,000 for Rady Children’s NICU at Scripps Encinitas—Expansion Project. Awardwinning musician Mat Kearney headlined the event, sometimes leaving the stage at the Illumina Amphitheater, to sing among the 250 plus attendees. Rady Children’s President Kathleen Sellick welcomed guests to the pre-concert program. No one in attendance was left unmoved after a young patient and his mother shared the heartfelt story of his NICU stay and recovery at Rady Children’s Hospital. In addition to the Mat Kearney concert, the event included dinner, cocktails, a DJ for an “after party” and a live auction. For more information, visit www.chacv. Event Co-chairs Lynne Carlson org.

Some Sage Culinary Advice for Womanly Well-Being Patricia Marsh



(858) 229-7456

Cont Lic # 418121

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN While October’s flavor of the month is pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, maintaining a woman’s well-being at any age involves a whole body approach encompassing multiple moving and nonmoving parts. To all the women we know and love, here’s a tribute to their good health, especially protecting breasts, energy levels, good moods, youthful appearances, strong bones and sanity during menopause. The Breast Offense is a Good Defense The American Institute for Cancer Research reports that roughly 38 percent of breast cancer cases in this country could be prevented with simple dietary changes and exercise. These changes include amping up the intake of cruciferous warriors, including broccoli rabe, turnip greens, kale and Brussels sprouts loaded with anticancerous sulforaphane along with indole-3-carbinol, which has been found to metabolize estrogen into a diluted form. Foods with high levels of beta-carotene like carrots and sweet potatoes have also been found to lower the incidence of breast cancer. Raw garlic is packed with allicin, a potent sulfur compound, that not only wards off viruses, bacteria, inflammation and the occasional vampire, but breast cancer cells. Yet another defensive weapon is the omega-3 fatty acids found in oily, cold-water fish, especially wildcaught salmon. Add to the breast cancer arsenal seaweed and other oceanic veggies for a treasure trove of beta-carotene, vitamin B-12 and the fatty acid chlorophylone. If you’re not a fish person, you can get your omega magic bullet from breasthealthy flaxseed, high in lignans with remarkable antiinflammatory and antioxidant properties. Toss in everything from soups and salads to smoothies and baked

goods. Ironically, we’ve been warned to stay out of the sun to avoid skin cancer, but 20 minutes of sunshine a day will dole out a breasthealthy dose of Vitamin D. As well, dial up Vitamin Drich foods like organic eggs, fortified milk, mackerel, shrimp and cod liver oil. Finally, recent studies on the controversial soy, a phytoestrogen powerhouse have shown it to be particularly beneficial to pubescent girls with a reduction in breast cancer risks later in life. Femme Fatales Don’t char your foods whether animal, vegetable or mineral, which produces toxic compounds called heterocyclic amines that have been found to increase assorted cancer risks. And those belonging to the cocktail culture (indulging in more than five libations a week) are in a high-risk category for developing breast cancer. So be Cabernet cautious. Bone Appétit Women, at higher risk for developing osteoporosis than men, need to bone up on calcium in combination with magnesium and Vitamin D. While dairy products are loaded with calcium they are also rife with animal fat and protein, found to actually accelerate bone loss. So swap these for plantbased calcium sources like dark leafy greens, broccoli and Brussels sprouts, white beans, whole grains and oily fish, particularly sardines (with Omega-3 and calciumrich skin and bones intact). Good magnesium sources include green beans, squash, sesame and sunflower seeds. A Hot Flash in the Pan As your reproductive system transitions into retirement you can seek menopausal relief, particularly from hot flashes by eliminating the evil twin sisters (refined white sugar and flour), coffee and wine. A daily dose of flaxseeds along with essential fatty acids in omega-3’s and 6’s might also put the skids on the flashes by stabilizing hormone levels. Beauty and the Beets We’re all getting older, darlings, but that doesn’t mean we have to look it. The tropical guava like a collagen factory helps build and plump up cells for a sexy, more radiant complexion. Healthy fats (olive and sesame oils, almonds, avocados) not only impart shine to hair, a glow to skin and strength to nails, but dial up

vitality and mood, and help maintain an ideal weight. Of course, drink plenty of H2O, (six glasses a day) for hydration and flushing away impurities. For a more palatable swig, add a splash of pomegranate juice or float cucumber slices on top. And eat water-packed foods like watermelon, honeydew and romaine lettuce to rev up skin cell turn over. Rich in Vitamin K, romaine’s luscious leaves will also reduce bone loss for a youthful jaw and chin line. At last, the mighty beet is a fat free “super-food” loaded with magnesium, calcium, iron, potassium, vitamins A and C, fiber and folic acid for the production and maintenance of new cells. High in carbohydrates, beets give a burst of energy without packing on calories. My final contribution is this cruciferous concoction that can be eaten hot as a side or cold as a salad while soaking up Vitamin D’s on your patio.

Smokin’ Roasted Brussels Sprouts 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed, cut lengthwise 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 teaspoon Herbes de Provence 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika 1/4 teaspoon turmeric Ginger powder, cayenne to taste Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, herbs and spices. Toss in Brussels, and coat thoroughly. Spread on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until tender and browned.

BEAMING continued from page B9 vision of Beaming being a social spot and that has come true as well â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she said the store has a great vibe, people are often sitting on tables outside or indoors at the funky bar or in the cozy loungers. Beamingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boom has been a blessing for Odenweller. Odenweller and her staff will start working out of a new 4,000-square-foot kitchen as they outgrew their old one, with the intent of more retail and shipping of cleanses and packaged goods nationwide. The opportunity is also there for another storefront,

hopefully two more in the next six to nine months, Odenweller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You put something out there that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re passionate about and you believe in and you just hope people show up,â&#x20AC;? Odenweller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really does just blow my mind how many people responded and say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I feel so good.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been really cool to see all of it come to life and my dream come true.â&#x20AC;? Beaming is located in the Albertsons shopping center, 2683 Via de la Valle (across from the Flower Hill Promenade). For more information, call (858) 481-1222 or visit www.bebeaming. com.

There, hot water is available only once or twice a day, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lack of easy access to electric plugs, the state holds onto your passport and you must present flowers and bow to the statutes of great leaders, Altaffer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walking around on your own will not happen. Also, it may bother you to be completely unreachable to the outside world,â&#x20AC;? Altaffer said. The group visited Kumsusan, the Sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memorial Palace, which Altaffer de-

scribed as one of the top five experiences of his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Words cannot describe it,â&#x20AC;? Altaffer said. Photos are not allowed so he has no evidence of its grandeur â&#x20AC;&#x201D; tons of marble, manicured gardens and people-movers. He said visitors must deposit all of their items at a cloak room, bow multiple times and move in a military-style group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most in my group agreed it was like going to a different planet, such as Mars, with people on it, but truly at the other end of the travel spectrum,â&#x20AC;? Altaffer said. Altaffer holds the world record for visiting the most UNESCO World Heritage sites (892 of 936), as well as being the third most-traveled person in the world. (World Heritage sites are natural and cultural places that are considered to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;outstanding universal value.â&#x20AC;?) Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visited all 192 UN countries, plus 300 island groups, exhausted 14 passports and 130 visas, surfed on every continent and skied on seven of them, visited both the North and South Poles and has been to Siberia 20 times.
