Presentation focuses on youth subcultures, drugs Sheriff’s officials inform parents of latest trends during gathering at Torrey Pines High School BY CLAIRE HARLIN Youth subcultures change just as rapidly as new risks develop — from Internet crimes, to drugs, to bullying — and sometimes it’s hard for parents to keep up with their kids during those impressionable teenage years. That’s why more than 150 local parents packed a Torrey Pines High School auditorium on Nov. 8 for a special presentation in which

two Orange County Sheriff officials specializing in juvenile delinquency explained the latest trends in youth subcultures and drugs. The event was held so parents can better understand the challenges kids face in their social networks and know the signs of substance use. Hosted by the San Dieguito Union High School District’s Recovery Education Alcohol/Drug Instruction (READI) program,

the graphic program revealed real life cases, some tragic and eye-opening, that law enforcement officers have handled in Southern California. Also on display were hundreds of items confiscated from youth, from weapons to paraphernalia to abused drugs — many of which are legal. “These things happen to See YOUTH Page 6

After a failed Prop J, DM still optimistic about revitalization BY CLAIRE HARLIN From the passing of the Community Plan in 1976 to the Del Mar 2000 Plan created in the 1980s to the 1996 Camino Del Mar Streetscape Plan — among several other milestones — revitalization is no new topic for Del Mar. And while the most recent Village Specific Plan (VSP) might have been the closest Del Mar has been to actually implementing revitalization, city officials and residents on both sides of Prop J say its failure at the polls on Nov. 6 doesn’t mean the city’s hard work on the plan

was a waste of time. “The VSP as a comprehensive plan didn’t pass, but everything leading up to the specific plan still has validity,” said Del Mar Planning and Community Development Director Kathy Garcia. “The solutions will change but the analysis is still valid.” The community will get a rest from the heated issue until the county’s Registrar of Voters certifies the election in early December, and the city will also wait to See PROP J, Page 6

High School (CCA) staff, parents of current students, alumni and future students, and members of its foundation gathered to celebrate the achievements of the school. The “Evening in the Ranch” reception also recognized the generosity of contributors to the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation

(CCAF) which, in part, has helped CCA raise its average Academic Performance Index (API) score to 917, the highest in the six public school districts countywide, despite being the lowest funded. A hush fell over the room as CCA Principal Brian Köhn shared details about the school’s current and past

achievements. Köhn, introduced by Rick Barrera, a father of a CCA student, spoke passionately about the school’s success. As the first public school to break the 900 API score barrier in the county, CCA has been the highest

Stores move, new tenants coming to Del Mar Highlands Town Center There have been a few changes at Del Mar Highlands Town Center, including the relocation of existing shops and room being made for some new ones. Ceramic Café moved from its spot near the plaza and is now on the lower part of the center near Burlap. Anthony’s Shoe Repair also moved just a few shops down from where his business stood for more than 10 years and is now next to The Counter. According to Elizabeth Schreiber, general manager for Donahue Schriber which owns and operates the center, Mistral will be the new tenant in Anthony’s former space. Mistral currently has a store on Cedros in Solana Beach and specializes in French soaps, skin care, candles and fine fragrances. In place of Ceramic Café’s old spot, the center is bringing in Diane’s Beachwear. Diane’s Beachwear has 16 locations in Southern California (as well as two in Arizona), offering swimsuits as well as clothing and accessories. Both Diane’s and Mistral aim to open by the end of the month, Schreiber said. — Karen Billing

Open space encroachment biggest issue for planned church project BY KAREN BILLING Planners behind the new St. John Garabed Armenian church continue to discuss the details of their project with the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board as they await further review from the city and an environmental impact report. The biggest concern for the project, located off El Camino Real behind the Evangelican Formosan Church (just north of Carmel Valley, southwest of Rancho Santa Fe and east of Del Mar), is the encroachment into protected open space. The church’s proposal exceeds the 25 percent development allowable within the city’s Multi-Habitat Planning Area. The MHPA is part of the Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP), a program that preserves a network of habitat and open space throughout the county. “We have compacted our development into the least sensitive part of the site,” said Marcela EscobarEck, principal of the Atlantis Group representing Garabed

Input wanted from Del Mar residents on street lights

Work continues after Solana Beach pipe blast

The City of Del Mar received a $25,000 Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant from the Energy Commission to retrofit the City’s existing high pressure sodium streetlights with new energy efficient induction lights. While the majority of the 73 streetlights in Del Mar are owned and maintained by SDG&E, and therefore do not qualify for the program, 32 Del Mar-owned street lights do qualify to be retrofit at no cost to the City. Two high-pressure sodium streetlights have already been swapped out with energy efficient induction luminaries as a means of facilitating citizen feedback on the proposed lighting upgrade. One of the sample streetlights is located at the southwest corner of 9th Street and Camino del Mar and the other is immediately north of the railroad crossing along Coast Boulevard. Residents are encouraged to visit the sites and contact Public Works Deputy Director Joe Bride at 858-755-3294 or email with any comments or questions they may have about the upcoming project.

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Beachgoers who happened to be at Fletcher Cove the afternoon of Nov. 7 may have been in for a frightening surprise when a pipe accidentally exploded after a dredging company working on the Regional Beach Sand Project tried to unclog it by pressurizing it. As of Nov. 13, work had resumed in the form of piping repair, deployment of divers, and movement of bulldozers and tug boats, according to the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG). After the accident, which happened around 4:30 p.m., Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company immediately shut down work on the sand replenishment project, which is also taking place on seven other beaches in the county. According to SANDAG, a safety review is underway and methods undertaken to clear the clogged pipe will not be employed again on this project. No active dredging will be performed in the next few days, according to SANDAG, and officials will update the SANDAG website information as all project operations resume — and that’s not expected to happen earlier than Nov. 15. The project at Fletcher Cove began Nov. 4 and was expected to last six days. For more information, visit =projects.detail.

Local resident thrilled by ‘Super Bowl of racing’ win owners lead their runners into the winner’s circle after a big win. He liked the tradition, so he and Rome have adopted it. When Strauss was interviewed by the media along with Rome and trainer Puype, he enthused, “It’s really an amazing feeling. My voice is gone, I was tired, I was sweating, I felt like I rode the horse and ran the race myself. It’s just an exhausting feeling. But there is no feeling like it for that exact second. “There’s greater moments in your life, like when I married my wife and the birth of my children,” continued the winning owner. “But in that instant when that horse crosses that finish line in front and the way she did it, not knowing until the last jump that we had won, there is just no immediate feeling in the world like that.” On Breeders’ Cup day, Margie was with him. Their son, Stephen, stayed in New York where he is a senior at Columbia University. Daughter Allie also remained in New York where she works. Brother Jeffrey

Sportscaster Jim Rome on the left, victorious Mizdirection with Mike Smith aboard in the center, and Bill Strauss on the right. BENOIT PHOTO Strauss, chef and owner of the award-winning Pamplemousse Grille locally, was at Santa Anita but not in the winner’s circle. He was catering an event for the Breeders’ Cup and was busy with his event. Mizdirection came into the race off a five-and-ahalf-month layoff, stepping up into top company against males. She was one of two fillies in a 14-horse field of males. Unbridled’s Note, the favorite, finished second and Rennesgotzip,

the other filly in the field, was third. Earlier in the year, Mizdirection had won three stakes races including the Las Cienegas Handicap (G3) in April and had not started since a second-place finish in the Great Lady M at Betfair Hollywood Park in May. The Strausses divide their time between their longtime home in Del Mar and their home in Santa Monica. Strauss became interested in racing by going to the races at Del Mar with

friends and his brother Jeffrey. Bill and Margie became friends with jockey Alex Solis who encouraged them to become owners. They bought into their first racehorse in 2008 with the help of Alex Solis II, son of the prominent jockey. In fact, the younger Solis bought Mizdirection for $50,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-olds in training sale in 2010 and put the partnership together. Solis was at Santa Anita for the Breeders’ Cup victory as well. Strauss owns a 25 percent interest in Mizdirection. Currently, he owns pieces of 15-20 horses including horses in training, babies on the farm, a yearling he just purchased at the Keeneland September sale. Prior to Mizdirection, the best horses Strauss campaigned included multiple Grade 1-winning filly Turbulent Descent and The Pamplemousse. Named for the restaurant, The Pamplemousse was an early favorite for the 2009 Kentucky Derby but was sidelined by an injury. A serial entrepreneur, Strauss was co-founder and

first employee of ProFlowers. He then became president, chief operating officer and a member of the board of directors of Provide Commerce, which owns a number of e-commerce brands (companies which do business on the internet but do not have stores). Provide Commerce’s bestknown brands are ProFlowers, RedEnvelope and Shari’s Berries. In early fall, 2011, he was tapped to become CEO of, an online shoe, handbag and costume jewelry company founded by celebrity stylist and businesswoman Kim Kardashian. Strauss since has left ShoeDazzle. He was a founding board member of the Naval Special Warfare Foundation, which helps support the families of fallen Navy Seals. Strauss says plans call for Mizdirection to race at five: “It’s just a pleasure to work with Mike Puype. He trains all my race horses. He’s an awesome trainer, very hard working. It’s just a pleasure to have horses with him. He has become a friend as well.”

BY JULIE SARNO Though the Breeders’ Cup was the first weekend in November, Bill Strauss is still bubbling over with excitement about winning the $1,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) with 4-yearold filly Mizdirection. “We had won three or four Grade 1 races with Turbulent Descent, but there is nothing that compares to this,” said Strauss. “It was just amazing. This is the Super Bowl of racing.” The 4-year-old filly’s come-from-behind victory in the final strides against colts at Santa Anita in the Turf Sprint was a thrill for Strauss, trainer Mike Puype and co-owner Jim Rome, a sports radio talk show host. Rome races as Jungle Racing, named after his show “The Jungle.” Mizdirection was ridden by Hall of Fame rider Mike Smith, who this year won two to bring his career total to 17, the most for any jockey in Breeders’ Cup history. Jubilant owners Strauss and Rome led Mizdirection into the winner’s circle after the race. Strauss noted that on the East Coast, many

North County relishing falling gas prices BY ROB LEDONNE After a full year of record high gas prices, including a spike in October that left residents shaking their heads, the cost of a gallon of gas is finally decreasing just in time for Thanksgiving and the holiday driving season. However, with an entire nation feeling pain at the pump, many are wondering if this is a fleeting miracle or part of a welcome trend. “The hope is that they do continue to fall throughout the end of the year. That would be a typical pattern,” said Marie Montgomery, spokesperson for AAA of Southern California. “But expect the unexpected because this year has been anything but typical.” Montgomery acknowledged that while gas is still expensive, it’s “nowhere near where it once was, which is perfect timing for the holidays.” Based on a normal pattern, gas prices decline into January but Montgomery notes “as we’ve seen, any disruption to our supply seems to really set off the market. A lot of it has to do with the economy, the financial outlook, the value of the dollar. If the economy is not doing that well and value of the dollar is low then you’re going to have to shell out more dollars in the long-run.” In other words, the North County area, and country in general, are at the mercy of a fragile system. However, something like the gas rationing in the northeast due to Hurricane Sandy won’t effect Southern California in the least. “That’s a localized situation in New York. Any part of their supply chain has nothing to do with Southern California.” said Montgomery. Susan Crow, an employee of the Shell Station on Del Mar Heights Road, knows all too well about the effect of rising and fall-

ing gas prices. “I’ve worked here for about seven years now, and just recently it went up quite a bit,” said Crow referring to early October’s price increase which saw a gallon of premium gas as high as $6, a record. That increase was thanks to pipeline and refinery issues and caused Governor Jerry Brown to order the sale of winter-blend fuel, which is traditionally cheaper. Since then, prices have been dropping every day since, but the damage done to local business remains. “When we hit record highs in October, people wouldn’t come (into the store) and buy as much” said Crow, who also noted that an attached repair shop saw a sharp decrease in business as well. During the surge, she also noticed a lot of people forgetting about their car altogether and riding bicycles to get around. “When prices went up, they went up so fast it was sort of shocking,” said Montgomery. “We had no time to adjust to a spike, which occurred within a week. Everyone was waiting and waiting for the prices to go down, and finally they did.” Even better, according to Montgomery,, is that current gas prices are near the same as last year, a rarity so far in 2012, especially during this past summer when Southern California saw an all-time high Memorial Day price for gas. “Our busiest time is when the fair and racetrack are open,” explained Crow of the crowds they draw into the area. “Christmas is the slowest time for us.” How low prices will go during the holiday driving season is the ultimate question, and something no one has the answer to. Said Crow: “It’s strange how it goes up and then goes back down. It seems kind of crazy to me.”

Friends of Del Mar Mesa Preserve directors, officers elected BY SUZANNE EVANS Del Mar Mesa board members unanimously elected Friends of Del Mar Mesa Preserve directors and officers at their Nov. 8 meeting. Directors of the board’s newly formed nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, elected for two-year terms, include Angelika Drake, Preston Drake, Gary Levitt, Ken London, Paul Metcalf, Trey Nolan, Bill Woolson, and Lisa Ross. Friends of Del Mar Mesa Preserve officers elected for one-year terms are Lisa Ross, president; Ken London, secretary; and Preston Drake, treasurer. The mission of the Friends of Del Mar Mesa is “to protect and preserve the habitat, ecosystems, and recreational aspects of the Del Mar Mesa through habitat restoration and enhancement, recreational support, stewardship, research, and education. We support educational and recreational activities that foster an appreciation of the natural environment of Del Mar Mesa.” “There will also be a protection plan for vernal pools,” said chair Gary Levitt. Among tasks Friends will undertake are trails enhancement, fencing materials upgrades, and natural habitat restoration. Also included in the mission is “the whole mesa, not just the preserve,” Levitt said, noting, “Anyone who wants to join Friends is welcome.” The new Friends board of directors approved the organization’s draft bylaws. Next, Preston Drake, treasurer, will file for 501c non-profit tax-exempt status with the IRS and State, register with the State and State Attorney General, and open a bank account for the organization.

YOUTH continued from page 1 our kids and these things are common and normal for our children,” said Lance Christensen, a deputy sheriff who has been cracking down on drugs at Orange County schools for more than six years. “We’ve been having a lot of drug arrests and we recently hit [school campuses] aggressively searching cars and lockers … But what’s important is showing parents the search techniques and giving them the proper resources to know what their kids are doing.” OC Sheriff Sergeant Nancy Wilkey, who accompanied Christensen in giving the two-hour presentation, said most youth deaths — from suicide to drug overdoses — happen to kids between the ages of 18 and 25, soon after kids become adults and parents no longer have control. She referenced several recent cases, such as the September death of an 18-yearold boy who overdosed in a Huntington Beach hotel room, and said she wants to give parents the knowledge

necessary to help prevent problems from escalating to that point. “I’ve started realizing that the parents often don’t recognize the signs and symptoms,” she said. “They have absolutely no idea, no control.” The officers said there are a number of new drugs that are easily attainable and very deadly, such as “bath salts,” synthetic cannabis such as “Spice” and “K2,” and legal prescription drugs that are abused. Bath salts are not really used in the tub, that’s a street name for a legal synthetic drugs that are sold in head shops and convenient shops and causes intense and often destructive hallucinations. The drug has also come up recently in the media due to severe cases in which users self-mutilated or mutilated others. Christensen and Wilkey also said performance-enhancing products are often being used by high school boys, and they have nasty side effects, such as the development of breast tissue due to failure to use an estrogen blocker in conjunction with the drugs. This often causes boys to lactate and

even need corrective surgery. They said boys who work out often or play sports might be at risk of using these types of products. “You have to also remember that children see, children do,” said Wilkey, adding that 147 bottles of animal steroids were recently confiscated from an Orange County teen who bought them in Mexico. “A parent with a body image disorder may influence their child. Everything parents do, their child is going to pick up on it.” Christensen also showed a plastic bag that was confiscated from a teen girl who had been using diet pills and laxatives, as well as binging and purging. The bag contained laxatives and a hand sanitizer which the officer

said is often consumed to self-induce vomiting. They said of the biggest problems on high school campuses, however, is medical marijuana, mainly due to its availability. It has become increasingly difficult to monitor pot use because kids make pipes out of unconventional items such as plastic soda bottles, and the drug is even being sold in less obvious, odor-free forms like sodas, candies and other edible items. In particular, “Hubby Bars” are an extremely potent new edible cannabis product that has resulted in many overdoses in schools because it takes up to an hour to kick in, and kids often consume too much before it takes effect on their bodies.

“Most of the time kids laugh when you ask where they get their pot,” said Christensen. “They say, ‘You can get it anywhere.’” The officers encouraged parents to search their kids’ cars and trash cans and look for wrappers, mutilated soda bottles and other evidence of pot use. They said searching the bushes where kids go for walks might reveal discarded marijuana containers. They also said certain subcultures — such as the “indie,” “bohemian,” or “jock” — often indicate drug use or other risks, such as bullying, and they described the subcultures in detail so parents can pinpoint where their kids fit in socially. “If they are into indie or bohemian or hippie things, it’s likely they might be into pot,” said Christensen, adding that this subculture is characterized by loving nature and shopping at thrift stores for clothes, among other specific trends. “These are the trends we’ve been seeing.” Other subcultures the officers touched on are the “hipsters,” “mean girls,” and the “fresh” kids, which they described as “modern preps.” The officers were able to pinpoint these subcultures and risks by anonymously surveying local kids. The officers had the descriptions kids gave of themselves and their peers on display at the presentation, and they also


based code committee. He said it is “ridiculous” that the community didn’t trust a plan that Del Mar’s elected officials and “top-notch” consultants spent well over a year studying and revising. “Many of these people are residents just like everyone else and they’ve spent hours on end reviewing every aspect of this,” said Gad. “Why would they come forward after all that and present something that’s not good?” Al Corti, who was elected Nov. 6 to the Del Mar City Council, will assume the uncontested seat on Dec. 4 and he brings to the table hours and hours of time dedicated to studying the VSP, as well as the community’s likes and dislikes. He’s attended at least 60 of 90 public meetings the city held during its drafting of the plan and the educational phase leading up to election. He said the time and money spent on the VSP wasn’t wasted, because the major consensus is that revitalization is still necessary and the city learned a lot in the process. He said as a City Council member he will focus on the parts of the VSP that the community did like, such as building a parking structure on the City Hall

property. “There were a lot of positives that came out of it that we could be doing to revitalize, as opposed to taking it all at once,” he said, adding that he welcomes a break from the VSP, but would like to see discussions resume within the next six months. “The more dialogue we have with the community, the more we will understand how to move forward, but at this point we need to let the community take a rest from the discussion,” he said. Dave Druker, who opposed Prop J, leading the group Save Olde Del Mar, said he is both happy and not surprised about the election’s outcome, but it’s time to pick up the pieces. “It’s very important that the city go though a strong healing process in terms of getting the two opposing sides to start working on projects everyone can agree on that will be beneficial to the city,” Druker said. He said the failure of Prop J was not a rejection of revitalization, but rather an affirmation of the Community Plan. “People think the Community Plan is the correct vision for Del Mar and the changes in Del Mar need to

continued from page 1 move forward on any alternative revitalization efforts until the City Council gives city staff direction to explore other options. While there are still more than 250,000 mail/provisional ballots to be tallied countywide, Prop J campaigners are deeming the measure failed, with 58.3 percent of voters rejecting it and only 41.6 percent in favor (as of presstime for this newspaper). Howard Gad, a Prop J supporter with the group FOR Del Mar’s Future, said the high turnout — about 2,000 voters, or half of Del Mar residents — was expected, as was the uphill battle the Prop J proponents fought. “The burden was on the ‘yes’ side because if people don’t understand a measure, they vote no,” he said. “This was a great plan but it covered a lot of ground … Maybe it was too comprehensive.” He said that many of the supporters have been working on the issue as far back as four years ago when the city attempted to revitalize by convening a form-

Not only did they attribute some destructive behavior to social media and television shows, but they warned that our youth should be particularly aware of the digital footprint they leave behind on the Internet.

They told parents to consider installing Internet monitoring devices, such as keystroke loggers to make sure kids are safe. “There is no more anonymity,” said Christensen. “Everything is discoverable and that’s something we are trying to teach our kids in our schools.” For more information about this presentation or the READI Program, contact school psychologist Joseph Olesky at (760) 436-6136, ext. 6183 or email Joe.

be small and planned,” he said. “Development in Del Mar needs to be of human scale, with one story on the west side … Ultimately the amount of development should not be overwhelming. The VSP was too big, too complex and too ambitious.” Garcia said the Environmental Impact Report, as well as other findings, can be used for future projects, so the resources weren’t wasted. For example, parking studies can still be used for the city’s Parking Management Plan, and the EIR can be used for any relevant development — public or private. “As far as staff time and planning, we do a lot of research and development, and maybe that data was not used where it was originally intended, but it will still be used for other things,” she said. City staff await the goahead from city council to agendize and move forward with revitalization, however, in the meantime the city has been busy with the Housing Element, Local Coastal Program, development proposals and other initiatives and tasks. “The election may be over,” she said, “but we haven’t seen it calm down.”

TEDxYouth@SanDiego to inspire San Diego’s ‘Architects of the Future’ on Nov. 18 at CCA TEDxYouth@SanDiego will host nearly 400 students from high schools throughout San Diego County on Sunday, Nov. 18, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at Canyon Crest Academy to experience the power of sharing ideas and the importance of becoming the “Architects of the Future.” Students will engage with big thinkers and doers of all ages and backgrounds pushing the boundaries of their endeavors spanning science, art, technology, environment, humanity and beyond. “Our student organizers set out to create an event that showcases true architects of the future of all disciplines, and calls to the architects of our future: our youth,” said Sonia Rhodes, executive producer for TEDxYouth@SanDiego. “It’s important to light a spark of possibility for our youth, so that through the power of ideas and a belief that anything is possible, young people of San Diego and the world can create the future we’re hoping for.” Following the theme of “Architects of the Future,” students will hear from more than 25 speakers and performers in four “stories” — sessions that build from the foundation to framing, construction and close with interior. In between each session, the groups will rotate between 15 interactive exhibits known as Interactive Experience Salons in technology (CONNECT), health and environment (PROTECT) and personal reflection (REFLECT) zones. The full speaker lineup is available at and a live video stream will be accessible to the public starting at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 18. Student organizers will also be active on social media day-of on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at tedxyouthsandiego.

CHURCH continued from page 2 posed is worth the permanent loss of open space.” She said that open space is not just about the wildlife corridor, but also serves as a break from urbanization and creates a community identity. St. Garabed’s plan is for four buildings on the 13.3acre site, including a 350seat sanctuary, an 18,000-square-foot social hall, an 11,000-square-foot library and cultural education center and a 14,000-square-foot youth center and gym. The architecture will reflect the tradition of Armenian churches, which includes a pointed dome and emphasis on height, rather than width. “I’m all in favor of the church,” said Harvey. “It’s just a lot of buildings and a lot of bulk and mass in that site.” The sanctuary is the biggest of the buildings in the plan and is 93 feet tall to the top of the cross. EscobarEck said they are well within their allowable height due to setbacks—they are allowed to build to a height of 111 feet. The three other buildings are within 30 to 40 feet tall. Board member Manjeet Ranu said the perception of the bulk and scale is a judgement call and he likes the way the applicant has planned the site. “I think they’ve done a great job clustering the

buildings. I’m always cognizant of development rights and I think they’ve done a good job preserving the parts that matter most to us but I do understand the concerns about bulk and scale.” Ranu said the most paramount issue with the property is the wildlife corridor and the trail access to Gonzales Canyon. “The project has met that principle goal in my mind,” Ranu said. “The key goal for me is protecting that corridor and I feel like they’re going in the right direction but we still need that environmental document.” The environmental impact review would be a next step, although the city has not yet determined the level of review. Harry Krikorian, a Carmel Valley resident and member of the church, said that he doesn’t see that the project negatively impacts the open space. “We’ve created a beautiful project that complements Carmel Valley and will be something we can all be proud of,” Krikorian said.

Del Mar author molds German family manuscript and research to tell ‘overlooked’ WWII story BY CLAIRE HARLIN What began nearly 70 years ago as an overseas pen pal relationship ended up being a lifelong friendship for Del Mar resident Arlene Lighthall, as well as the true story inspiration behind her new book, “Tomorrow, My Son.” While many accounts of World War II detail the suffering and killing of Jewish people as victims of the Nazis, a lesser known truth is that millions of Germans suffered too. Lighthall has, for much of her life, been determined to tell that story — a story she knows from following one German family for decades, and even learning to speak German in order translate a manuscript given to her by the family’s father. “I researched whether that story had been told before and I found only two books that dealt with it at all, but no day-by-day accounts,” said the author, who has lived in Del Mar for about 45 years and taught literature at MiraCosta College for 22 years before she retired. She began writing “Tomorrow, My Son,” her first published work, about four years ago, which she said was a lifelong and very personal Arlene Lighthall feat. PHOTO/CLAIRE HARLIN The story began for Lighthall when she was a teenager in the 1940s in Northern Indiana. Her junior high school teacher encouraged the class to send care packages with warm clothing to European refugees at the end of the war. Lighthall sent a pair of her father’s galoshes, and she later received a thank-you note from a German professor who had received the footwear and found an address inside. “He was so grateful,” Lighthall remembered. “He said he had large feet and often things didn’t fit him.” The professor mentioned he had a son, and Lighthall’s family also sent clothing for the little boy, Manfred, who was a few years younger than Lighthall. “His wife also wrote to thank us, and my mother thought, ‘Well, she needs some clothing,’ so we sent women’s clothing too,” said Lighthall. Correspondence between the families continued, mainly between Lighthall and Manfred, and the German father also kept a journal to send Lighthall, which detailed everything the family and other German residents experienced while being pushed out of their homes in East Germany by the Russians. Not only did those German residents face possible repercussions for their beliefs — no matter what side they were on — but they were victims of looting, violence and starvation, Lighthall said. During that time, these European refugees knew that the Jews had moved out of town and their stores had closed, however, they didn’t know what was going on, Lighthall said,

and they especially were not aware of the Holocaust or concentration camps. “The family was against Hitler, but they couldn’t say a word in public,” she said. “They could have been shot just for listening to any of the propaganda.” Lighthall said the professor wrote in his manuscript that in one day he had to help bury 300 people found dead on the road. The forces used him to help identify bodies of fellow citizens. During her college years at Ball State, Lighthall started taking German classes so she could someday translate the detailed 80page manuscript. She held on to it for decades before finally translating it in the 1970s, and the path to her book project really started taking form when she met a detective on an airplane, whom she asked to help her find Manfred — and he did. Lighthall contacted the family and made a visit to Germany soon after. The father had passed away, the mother was elderly and Manfred was in his 30s at the time. “I got to spend time with the mother and she was so delightful,” said Lighthall. “If it hadn’t been for that manuscript, I don’t think I would have learned German, and I wouldn’t have been able to talk with her when I was there.” Decades passed and Lighthall kept in touch with Manfred, but it was the time spent with his mother on that trip that resonated with Lighthall and provided the much-needed source of inspiration for her novel. “The manuscript wasn’t well rounded enough to be a book itself. It was all cold, factual notes,” said Lighthall. “But then I got the idea to write the book from the mother’s point of view, and because I had

met her and spent time with her, that was possible.” Lighthall said it was like a trance getting into the character, and she additionally emerged herself in German history and culture to provide accurate details. By the time Lighthall started writing, however, the mother had passed away, so some unknown parts of her life had to be created as fiction. “One time when I visited, we took a walk and she told me so much about her life and it was all in German — I wish I had written it down,” she said. “It was fascinating.” She said that during the writing process she would take long mental trips to Germany, adding details such as German expressions and foods — even German poetry. “When I sat down to write, I wasn’t Arlene Lighthall writing,” she said. “I was the woman in my book.” Lighthall still keeps in touch with Manfred, who went from being in a refugee camp after the war to starting his life over as a teacher. He has two sons, has survived cancer and has always had an enthusiastic affinity for boating. “Tomorrow, My Son” is available for purchase on Lighthall was thrilled to see that the first person to review the book on the website was Manfred himself. “I was 8 years old and, 67 years later, I remember having had a large adventure, though we had suffered from hunger, danger and anger,” he wrote on the book’s Amazon page, signing his name “Manfred the son.” To contact Lighthall or to order a book, email

Week in Sports; See more sports, pages 20-23 BY GIDEON RUBIN Football: A team that went into the last week of the regular season with iffy playoff hopes now finds itself two wins away from playing for a championship.

The Falcons, who improved to 6-5 overall for the season, will play perennial power Eastlake of Chula Vista (7-3) on Fri. (Nov. 16) at 7 p.m. at Eastlake. The upset-minded Falcons hope to add to their list of surprising wins this season. They’ve already beaten the odds with victories over Cathedral Catholic

Falcons quarterback Mike Ward was six for nine passing for 132 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Jack Bailey caught four passes for 101 yards and one touchdown. Place kicker Spencer Brewer was six for six on PATs on a busy night. Ward completed a 35yard scoring pass to Bailey in the first quarter that gave the Falcons an early lead.

Local resident running to raise money for children’s shelter in Ethiopia BY CLAIRE HARLIN Tim Williams has never run a race before, but he committed to run a half marathon in Las Vegas on Dec. 2. What keeps him going in his training is a certain cause he has decided to support along the way. The Rancho Santa Fe resident didn’t begin his training with philanthropic intentions, but after a conversation with his friend, John Rowe, about the dire needs of Omo Child, a children’s shelter Rowe co-founded in Ethiopia, Williams found himself fixated on helping his friend, who has been making up for funding shortages by subsidizing from his own pocket each month to feed the kids. “I was on a really hot run once and all I could think about was Ethiopia,” Williams said. “I realized I should be running not for my own accomplishment but to benefit Omo Child.” Williams set a goal of raising $25,000 before race day, and donors can give a fixed amount or a per-mile amount on a special donation page he set up (link below). “I promise I’ll finish, whether or not I have to do it in a wheelchair,” said Williams, who is the vice president of Rancho Santa Fe real estate company DWO Enterprises. Omo Child rescues and cares for Mingi children located in the Omo River Valley region of Southwest Ethiopia,

Africa. The children in the shelter were rescued because they were in line to be drowned or starved by tribal elders who thought the children brought a curse to the village. Mingi means “ritually polluted,” and a child might inherit that title if he or she is a twin, grows teeth on the upper jaw before the lower jaw, or is born out of wedlock. Even chipping a tooth might result in a tribe declaring a child Mingi. “The kids who are at our shelter wouldn’t survive otherwise,” said Rowe, a renowned photographer. “There is no place else for them to go.” Rowe said there’s a funding shortage at the shelter and it’s somewhere in the thousands each month. He’s been covering the costs that money from the shelter’s usual donors doesn’t cover, but he said he can’t keep doing that every month. Williams has raised just over $4,000 so far in training for his run, however, he hopes more than anything the awareness he’s spreading will encourage people to become regular donors that can contribute as much or as little per month as they can.

GOT MILK? Local Girl Scouts invited to participate in Milk Photo Contest In 1997, an adorable 10-yearold Girl Scout named Megan Weber made an impression on Californians with her iconic uniform and an arm full of cookie boxes on a memorable print campaign, provoking the question, “GOT MILK?” To commemorate this moment in time and the partnership established 15 years ago between the California Milk Processor Board (CMPB), the creator of GOT MILK?, and Girl Scouts in California, the organizations are searching for three lucky Girl Scouts among

the more than 200,000 in the Golden State to star in a new print campaign. Locally, registered Girl Scouts are encouraged to submit a photo showing how Girl Scouts and milk are helping them become strong, healthy and confident young women. “We are proud to team up with the California Milk Processor Board again,” says Girl Scouts San Diego CEO Jo Dee C. Jacob. “This photo contest is a creative way for girls to show how our organization builds the leaders of tomorrow, and illustrate the benefits of drinking milk.” Megan Weber, the freckle-faced redhead featured in the 1997 campaign, will travel to San Diego to encourage local Girl Scouts to participate in the contest. Weber, now 25 and living in Sweden, didn’t hesitate to lend her support. “I remember missing my school Halloween party to participate in the photo

shoot,” says Weber. “I just couldn’t pass up a once-in-alifetime opportunity to star in a GOT MILK? billboard and to represent California’s Girl Scouts. Girl Scouting taught me how to become independent and hard working. I’m excited to represent both GOT MILK? and the Girl Scouts in California as they search for a new generation of strong, healthy and confident young women.” The 2012 GOT MILK? Girl Scouts Photo Contest is an opportunity for three Girl Scouts in California to each receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond and to be featured together on a billboard (or comparable adver-

tising media) in their hometowns. The contest is open to all currently registered Girl Scouts, kindergarten through Grade 12 (except Girl Scout adults) belonging to one of the eight councils in California including Girl Scouts San Diego. From Nov. 5 to Dec. 17, 2012, Girl Scouts may submit a photo with a caption of no more than eight words showcasing the contest prompt: How have Girl Scouts and milk helped them become strong, healthy and confident young women? The Girl Scout submitting the photo and dairy milk must be fea-

tured on the photo. In addition to the three grand prizes, camp scholarships worth $350 each will also be given to 24 finalists throughout the state. For complete contest rules and to download an entry/release form, visit Entries can be submitted via the following: Email: (limit 8 MB); Mail: GOT MILK? 2012 Girl Scout Photo Contest, c/o RL Public Relations, 11835 W. Olympic Blvd., Suite 1155E, Los Angeles, CA 90064. The three grand prize winners will be notified by Jan. 31, 2013.

telligent. Now imagine the people needed to nurture it: volunteers, public servants, donors and committed residents. That’s you and me. We all share one thing in common: a deep regard for the community that reflects who we are and how we wish to live. Just like the people we love, Del Mar thrives when cared for properly. This is an investment we make reflected back at us in the healthy, unique, and welcoming town in which we live. As we celebrate our 30th Anniversary, and begin our year-end fundraising season, we share with you what the Foundation has been doing in 2012 and ask each of you to give what you can to support this community as we move forward. We call this Making it Happen Together. Kind regards, Karen Wilson, Executive Director, Del Mar Foundation GRANTS We’ve been busy this year connecting our community in a number of significant ways... and you’ve helped make it happen. Whether you are a donor, volunteer, or both here’s a recap of events and grants in 2012 that would not have been possible without you. Free Flight is a sanctuary for exotic birds, a small tropical jewel in Del Mar, which promotes bonding between people and our feathered friends. A Del Mar Foundation grant enabled Free Flight to design a new junior docent program and add tables for participants and visitors. Each year, Free Flight touches over 12,000 people through on-site visits and its outreach program. The Del Mar Jr. Lifeguards teaches young people ages 9 -17 about all aspects of lifeguarding, including environmental awareness, respect for the ocean, sportsmanship, fitness, and first aid basics. For over 12 years, the Del Mar Foundation has provided an annual grant, which has enabled close to 100 youth the opportunity to participate in this valuable program. A crowning moment for our community was the completion in June of the Beach Safety Center and Lifeguard Headquarters. Through the Friends of the Powerhouse, the Del Mar Foundation made an initial $35,000 grant for the Center, plus a $10,000 matching grant which resulted in $20,000 in donations for the boardwalk and garden. Life at the beach has not just gotten safer, it’s gotten more convenient too! The Del Mar Foundation funded nine bike racks located at beach access points. And for man’s best friend, there’s a new dog fountain for refreshment after a long walk on the beach. How many times have you walked past the Del Mar Post Office and admired its beautiful garden? With several DMF grants and many hours of hard work, the Del Mar Garden Club enhanced our community with water-saving plants and foliage, and this year with the addition of fencing and extended brick wall. The Del Mar Library mosaic wall also adds beauty to our community. The wall is dire need for repair, so the Foundation is granting funds and serving as fiscal sponsor for this restoration project. If we could collect a penny for every pedestrian who stops and admires this iconic structure, we’d be funded for life! EVENTS Twilight Concerts, a popular Del Mar tradition, rocked the summer with happy crowds enjoying the music, picnics, and classic Del Mar sunsets. The Del Mar Foundation’s Hospitality Committee hosted regular Meet & Greets throughout the year. Nearly 200 friends and neighbors — long-term residents as well as newcomers to Del Mar — shared a glass of wine and conversation at various restaurants in the village. If you haven’t attended one, we hope you’ll stop by in 2013! Memories were made and smiles created at a variety of fun and educational Children Committee’s events: In February, the Clan Rince Dance Troupe inspired joyful dance and artistic expression; the Easter Egg Hunt gathered scores of families at Powerhouse park for a visit with Easter rabbit; the recent Spooktacular drew nearly 500 participants to a beach bonfire, storytelling and s’Mores; the Independence Day Parade doubled in size this year with a colorful caravan of our youngest members proudly marching — banners unfurled. Still to come is the annual Del Mar Children’s Holiday Event with “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens, bringing a festive close to the Del Mar Foundation’s 30th year. First Thursdays, an institution in Del Mar, continues to enrich the cultural life of the village along with other special performances produced by the Foundation’s Cultural Arts Committee. Speaking of hard work (and making it happen together!), we now have a new home to share with the DMCC and the greater community. In 2008, the foundation contributed $35,000 towards the purchase of the Shores property. This year, dozens of volunteers pitched in to renovate the former Del Mar Union School District building, renamed The Del Mar Community Building. Since 2005, the Del Mar Foundation has funded over $200,000 in community grants, and brought together community volunteers and board members for more than 20,000 volunteer hours. Thank you donors, thank you volunteers!


Letters to the Editor/Opinion

Prop J efforts appreciated Now that the election dust has settled, I would like to thank the people I met and worked with during the Prop J campaign. Thanks to the many residents I spoke with who were open to information and thoughtful about the issues. I’d also like to thank the City Council for having the courage to try to solve what has been an intransigent problem for too many years, and city staff for their tireless work to develop a solution that reflected community input. Many thanks, also, to the FOR committee and the numerous volunteers and donors who supported Prop J. Contrary to what some may believe, they had no direct stake in the outcome other than wanting what they thought was best for the Village. In fact, to my knowledge, I was the only one interested in redeveloping, based on successful passage of Prop J. We would have added a residence to our small office building on Ninth St. Truthfully, it would have been a poor return on our investment, but we would have enjoyed living in town and walking everywhere. There were no hordes of greedy developers just waiting for the opportunity to make millions on development in Del Mar if Prop J passed. They are smart enough to steer clear of our community, and based on the gas station property, you can understand why. In hindsight, I think the plan was too complex to be understood well enough for an informed public vote. I would like to encourage the opponents of Prop J to build on the Village Specific Plan work that was done, so that the hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money are not a total waste. Rather than criticizing others’ efforts, I would encourage them to offer their solution to what almost everyone acknowledges is a deteriorating downtown with serious traffic problems. Without an approved housing element we will continue to miss out on government funding opportunities for our infrastructure. Once tax revenues to the city decline enough and the city is forced to cut public services, perhaps we will reassess the tradeoffs associated with a vibrant downtown. Linda Rock

Progressive sweep I have been writing about local poliONE VIEW tics in the North Coastal press for more than 25 years. As I am a liberal in a mostly conservative land, the morning after the election was always bittersweet, often more bitter than sweet. The recent election, however, was marked by a near-sweep for progressives. President Obama, who carried San Diego County, was re-elected with a landslide in GORDON CLANTON the Electoral College and with no loose ends. Florida doesn’t matter. Anton Scalia will not choose the next president. California. The Democrats won super majorities in both houses of the legislature. Now, if need be, the Dems can pass a budget with no Republican votes. Governor Brown’s Proposition 30 tax increases were approved by voters and a competing measure, Prop 38, was defeated. Prop 32, which would have greatly weakened labor union influence in California politics, was soundly defeated. Closer to home. Veteran Democratic Congressman Bob Filner, a friend and ally for 30-plus years, was elected mayor of San Diego. And Democratic Councilwoman Sherri Lightner was re-elected, giving the Democrats a 5-4 majority on the nominally non-partisan council. Although votes are still being counted, it appears that Democrat Scott Peters will defeat Republican incumbent Brian Bilbray in the 52nd Congressional District, bringing the SD County congressional delegation to a 3-2 Dem majority for the first time. Bilbray can now return to his natural occupation as a Washington lobbyist. Solana Beach Councilman Dave Roberts defeated Bilbray’s former chief of staff Steve Danon to become the first new county supervisor — and the first Democrat — in 20 years. Democrat Marty Block (another old friend) was elected to the state Senate (District 39) and Democrat Toni Atkins to

San Diego Veterans For Peace begins SUCCESS continued from page 1 third year helping the homeless •Do nations needed and appreciated Carmel Valley resident Gil Field and his fellow San Diego Veterans for Peace (SDVFP) members continue to visit the downtown San Diego streets after dark and make a positive, necessary impact in the quality of life for hundreds of homeless people, many of whom served in combat. Now in the beginning of its third year, the group’s “Compassion Campaign” is just that, a coordinated effort by a few tireless and dedicated veterans. Established in December 2010, the “Compassion Campaign” is the nonprofit group’s crusade to pro- Two or three times a month, based entirely on available vide sleeping bag sets and wa- donations, SDVFP members head out after dark to areas in downtown San Diego known to be popular sleeping terproof gear to San Diego’s spots for the homeless, and hand out about sleeping homeless population. bag sets. Two or three times a month, based entirely on available donations, SDVFP members head out after dark to areas in downtown San Diego known to be popular sleeping spots for the homeless, and hand out about sleeping bag sets, each of which includes a sleeping bag, a waterproof stuff sack, and a heavy-duty plastic poncho. Each set costs the vets $33 wholesale from the Coleman Corporation. The campaign raised more than $30,000 in its first two years, enough to deliver 1,350 sets to homeless people staying in many locations downtown, including spots near the Civic Center, the new library, along 16th Street, on Pacific Highway and in camps under three I-5 overpasses. SDVFP Director of Communications Gil Field said he and his fellow SDFVP members saw groups of homeless people sleeping on the pavement on cold and rainy days two years ago, and decided, as a group dedicated to helping veterans, many of whom are homeless — Field estimated the number to be 25 to 40 percent — that it was their duty to take action. From there, the Compassion Campaign became a project that the SDFVP put its weight and benevolent spirit behind. Citing those who return from war with post traumatic stress disorder and are unable to receive adequate care, Field said, “Veterans on the street, whether we like it or not, are victims of war.” As veterans for peace, we pledge to “help veterans and other victims of war. Our outreach is a natural fulfillment of our statement of purpose.” The program has been a success, Field said, and the homeless who receive the group’s sleeping sets are “so incredibly magnanimous and generous and incredibly grateful.” Recipients often cry. Field said homeless people have even turned down his help, directing him to deliver the sleeping bag sets to another homeless person who needs it more. “They said, ‘I don’t need it as much as the guy on the next block,’” Field said. “It’s astonishing, some of these people have nothing but the guy down the block has less. You’d think somebody who sleeps on the street, when they’re offered something, would take it regardless.” That selflessness struck a chord with Field and his fellow SDVFP members, who have taken now to bringing, in addition to the sleeping sets, extra car loads of donated coldweather clothing to hand out. They have even made connections with civic-minded corporations like REI, who has provided them several hundred pairs of returned shoes and hundreds of pairs of socks. In addition, the Quaker community in San Diego has been very generous with donations, donated clothing and blankets. Now in its third year, the Compassion Campaign hopes to continue to receive generous donations from the public to enable the chapter vets to make even more trips out after dark, where each recipient is evaluated for true need and only then given a sleeping bags set. The group is always looking for civic groups and corporate sponsors to help. One local company, JW Floor Covering, and its humanitarian outreach group, Outreach For Humanity, has donated both cash and backpacks full of safety supplies and toiletries for the homeless, and employees have gone out with SDVFP veterans to hand out the life-saving supplies. For more information on the San Diego Veterans For Peace and its Compassion Campaign, visit Donations made be made on line and by check. To donate by check, make out checks to the San Diego Veterans For Peace and mail them to San Diego Veterans For Peace, c/o Treasurer, 12932 Sunderland Street, Poway, CA 92064. All donations are tax deductible and 100 percent of donations go directly to purchasing sleeping sets.

performer for three consecutive years, said Köhn. Showing steady growth, the API has increased by 75 points over the past four years. “We are getting better every year... and I think, ‘How can the students possibly get better?’ But the kids keep doing it,” he said. Citing published statistics, Köhn noted that Newsweek ranked CCA the 97th best high school in the USA, which translates to the top 0.4 percent in the country. It was ranked in the top 1 percent by US World News, has the highest AP (Advanced Placement) pass rate in the San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD), and ranks one of the highest countywide. For curriculum opportunity, above and beyond that offered at most high schools, CCA has programs such as robotics; QUEST, a science program that offers “real research”; Envision, a state-model visual and performing arts program; and a top-ranked athletics program. “The school is clearly working during a time that is not easy for public education,” said Köhn. Statistics from 2010 data show that, on average, California spent $9,375 per student annually, while SDUHSD received $8,247, over $1,000 less, a formula determined at state level. “This year that amount has decreased to just over $7,000 per student. For seven consecutive years there have been cuts,” said Köhn. This translates to just over $70 left from the allocated budget, per student per year, for discretionary spending. With the obvious shortfall, extra funding is required to support necessities such as computer labs, equipment in the theater, information nights for parents, Challenge Day, graduation ceremonies, weight room equipment, software and computer updates, referees, artists-in-residence, assistant coaches, and more. Additionally, the annual cost for athletics programs is almost $300,000 and for Envision the cost is $150,000, alone. “These are the things


we have to fund, we can’t fund it from district money because it just isn’t there,” Köhn stressed. “This is where the foundation comes in, it has picked up where we have been left without any funds to work with anymore.” Funding from CCAF also correlates to the success of CCA graduates, said Ashley Banner, head counselor, who also spoke. “Our students are going off to college, they are happy and they are thriving.” Banner highlighted three very competitive schools that have shown a significant increase in successful CCA applicants this past year — CalTech, University of Michigan, and NYU. The numbers of students admitted to the UC system are even more impressive, said Banner. Overall, 80 percent of all CCA graduates go on to four-year colleges with significantly more accepted into Ivy League schools, proving that, despite the low budget, “the school is doing very well,” said Banner. Foundation President Marty Foltyn spoke passionately about CCAF’s role in support of student achievement, setting a goal to reach $1 million in funding for this fiscal year. Barrera made closing remarks, giving thanks to those donors who have already contributed generously and urged attendees to donate. The names of contributors at the $2,500 level will be added to the recently unveiled Legacy Wall located on the school campus. “CCA is a community. It takes all of us doing our part to make it work, to make the school special, and I can’t express enough how grateful I am for you to be here in support of our school,” said Köhn. The evening reception was made possible by the sponsorship of Taylor and Uschi Crouch, Gary and Anna Lillian, and Nick and Vanessa Smith. Julia Marie Schorn, principal harpist for the San Diego Youth Symphony and a CCA senior Instrumental Music Conservatory student, performed. College preparatory raffle items were donated by EUREKA, High Bluff Academy, and SUMMA, and gourmet food was provided by the Carmel Valley Farmers Market at CCA.

Christian Hellmers repeats in National Handicapping Contest

BY JULIE SARNO Local resident Christian Hellmers finished second in the 2012 Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge held at Santa Anita Park on Nov. 2-3. Hellmers won second-place prize money of $154,525, finishing second to Patrick McGoey of New Orleans who took home the winner’s share, $255,341. Improbably, the contest was a repeat of the 2011 Challenge, when Hellmers also finished second to McGoey at the Breeders’ Cup, raced at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. This year, Hellmers led the standings throughout the tournament until McGoey, down to $8,700, put most of his bankroll on 9-1 Fort Larned, in the Breeders’ Cup Classic, the final race of the contest. Fort Larned won and McGoey finished the contest with accumulated winnings of $85,341 to Hellmers $74,525, which was added to the second-place prize of $80,000. Hellmers girlfriend, Alicia Teresi, of Solana Beach, finished in sixth place in the Betting Challenge, taking home total earnings of $51,655. A Torrey Pines High School alumnus, Hellmers has had a passion for betting on horse racing since his teenage years. Growing up in Del Mar, where his mother George Hellmers still lives, Christian has fond memories of going to the track with his late father during his teen years. At 20, Hellmers and two friends – Nisan Gabay and Kevin McFarland –won several tournaments and were known as the “Pick 6 Boys,” capturing the attention of the racing world when they were interviewed on television and won $15,000 that day. Now 35, Hellmers is an entrepreneur. He founded, which specializes in “personalized matchmaking for solid men and radiant women.” Hellmers looks forward to the next chapter of his life. He has signed a contract to be on a proposed show about young handicappers on the G4 cable network. In fact, a camera crew followed him throughout the Breeders’ Cup weekend contest. Hellmers plans to offer handicapping tips and horses on his website, “I feel like Bodemeister in this year’s Kentucky Derby See CONTEST, page B17

BY CLAIRE HARLIN When Del Mar native and resident Angel O’Brien got word two years ago that her sister, Brenda, was diagnosed with cancer, it brought back a lifetime of memories, she said — from as far back as 5 years old, when her mother was battling breast cancer at age 38. Every morning at breakfast, O’Brien recalled, her mom would sit at the table in a pink robe and walk her fingers up the wall, lifting her arm as high as she could and marking a notch on the wall. The notches stayed on the wall, a record of her gradual progress recovering from her mastectomy. “That was a really hard time,” said O’Brien, 46, who has worked as a professional singer since age 15 when she joined the well known local band The Mar Dels. “When I have memories of my mom I think, ‘What a strong woman.’” O’Brien has always believed her mother to be a strong woman, but as of a little more than a year ago, she can truly relate. Only six months after her sister Brenda, 48, was diagnosed, a trip to the endocrinologist for O’Brien turned into her own breast cancer diagnosis. “I wasn’t feeling well and knew I had a lump but thought it was nothing,” she said. “They sent me immediately downstairs for a mammogram, and I was alone in a dark room when they told me. I think I said five times, ‘Are you telling me I have breast cancer?’” O’Brien stayed with her oldest sister, Kathleen, in Palm Springs during her treatment, and that four-month period of time was tough. Not only was it 114 degrees in Palm Springs during her chemotherapy, but O’Brien was unable to continue singing during that time and also her dog passed away. After her treatment, O’Brien urged her sister Kathleen, 52, to get a check-up — and along came yet another unfortunate diagnosis. “She went to the doctor and they told her she had stage three breast cancer,” said O’Brien. “But it was hard to spot because it was a different kind. She didn’t have a lump or anything; She had calcifications. She had been tired a lot, but the symptoms don’t always indicate cancer.”

O’Brien and her sisters have the BRCA2 gene, which makes women more susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer by genetic inheritance. The ladies have been reaching out to women through their website,, to tell their story and encourage women to get tested for the BRCA2 gene and get a preventative mastectomy if they have it. They were even invited to appear on the daytime TV show “The View” to kick off National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October and tell their story. Although the sisters are all survivors who are powering through the recovery and reconstruction stages of their battles, their accounts left the audience moved and hosts Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck streaming with tears. “It was so amazing getting interview by them on the couch, and at one point Kathleen pulled her wig off and she got a standing ovation from the audience, all wearing pink shirts,” she said, adding that she got to hang out with Whoopi Goldberg after the show in her dressing room and the actress gave each sister a pair of shoes from her extensive collection. “She had so many different kinds of Converse and shoes that companies just send her,” said O’Brien. “She told us to pick any pair we wanted, and we all happened to wear the same size as Whoopi, a size 10.” Kathleen works as a real estate agent in Palm Springs, and Brenda is a make-up artist for the Lion King Broadway show in New York. With the exception of working as a recording artist in Japan for about six years in the 1990s, O’Brien has stuck to her local roots, living in Del Mar and singing professionally around San Diego. More recently, though, she’s shifted her efforts to local outreach to help oth-

For nearly 40 years, artist’s colors and characters have graced Del Mar Cantor’s art, apparel displayed at Leaping Lotus, Durante’s BY CLAIRE HARLIN Gary Cantor is a truly a local artist — not by virtue of having lived in Del Mar since 1977, but because that’s where people have been spotting his distinct artistic style for decades. If you’ve been in Del Mar’s Americana Restaurant or Durante’s clothing store, you might have seen his colorful pieces on the walls. Or maybe you’ve seen the huge section of his T-shirts and paintings at Leaping Lotus in Solana Beach. He keeps it local, and doesn’t even venture outside North County to market his work, he said. “I’m local, so local people are like my extended family,” said Cantor. “When I walk into town I know a lot of people and I feel comfortable, and I want to be represented by people I know.” However, Cantor’s work has also been exhibited in various museums and galleries outside of North County, such as the San Diego Museum of Art, and he has had

four one-person shows. His work has also been collected in various private collections, including that of the former director/curator of the Los Angeles County Art Museum. Cantor once ran an ad agency in Del Mar and later started a school for advertising in Mission Valley, which he sold and is now the Art Institute of California—San Diego. But he said he’s been an artist his entire life, and that’s even what he pursued in college at the University of Southern California in the early 1960s. “I was never much into academics, but I could draw,” he said. “I did what I was good at and it got me through college.” When it came time to finding work after college, Cantor realized that art may not be a safe route, so he went to the library and immersed himself in advertising. “It was the closest thing to wearing a suit and tie that I could do,” he said. He ran Cantor Advertis-

ing for nearly two decades before selling the company to his brother. He then got married and started an advertising school with his now ex-wife, Tracy, and being one of the first of its kind, the school was very successful. “We were one of the first in the country to use computers for graphics,” said Cantor of the school, then called the La Jolla Academy of Advertising and Arts. Although the word “art” was in the name, the school focused strictly on advertising — every aspect of advertising. All the while, Cantor was always creating, showing and selling art, and his style has been consistent over the decades. Cantor started with paint and has switched to digital art and apparel in the past five years, however, his pieces have been recognizable by their vivid, intense colors, quirky characters and thick, prominent lines. “My style stays the same but it’s the implementation that changes,” he said. “It goes from formal and classic to wild, but you can still recognize it as mine.” He said he hasn’t purposely tried to keep his style

consistent so his works will be cohesive and easily recognized — it’s just natural. “It’s just me,” he said. “I can’t help it.” Cantor said he has a number of loyal collectors and much of the reason people are familiar with his work is because he’s been showing it for so long. He’s also taught more than 1,000 graduates at his school and he bumps into them everywhere, he said. “They know me and they know my art and some

of them have even become artists too,” he said. Cantor’s said his biggest inspirations are Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, and it shows through the lively, cartoon-like nature of his pieces. He also loves the popart style of Andy Warhol, and shares the art legend’s appreciation for use of graphics in art. Cantor said he dedicates time every day to art, and every piece has a message behind it. “Ideas just come to me

and I have to create them,” he said, adding that the concepts behind his work usually relate to the individual versus society. “Society accepts what’s legitimate. Society says, ‘We will accept this,’ and the individual may say, ‘Well, I want to do this,’ but what’s the impact of that?” said Cantor. “There’s this whole communication process that comes out in each piece.” For more information or to view Cantor’s art, visit

North Coast Rep Theatre School stages classic ‘The Outsiders’ Nov. 29-Dec. 2

La Jolla Cultural Partners

Like most middle schoolers in San Diego County, Geoff Geissinger read “The Outsiders,” S.E. Hinton’s coming-of-age novel about honor and acceptance emerging from a teenage turf war between the working-class “greasers” and wealthy “socs” in 1960s Tulsa. Geissinger, then a 7th grader at Earl Warren Junior High in Solana Beach, liked the book, liked it a lot. He liked it so much, in fact, that he needled the North Coast Rep Theatre School staff to produce the stage version while he was performing “Charlotte’s Web” last season. “I thought, ‘That would be such a fun show to do,’” said Geissinger, who turns 14 Nov. 24 and is in 8th grade at Earl Warren. “It was different from the shows we usually do. It was more of a manly show.” Fellow student actor Gabe Krut also often lobbied the school’s director to select a coming-of-age play with a serious plot that kids his age could relate to, and is pleased to see “The Outsiders,” which Hinton wrote when she was 16 years old, produced. “It takes the book to another level,” said Krut, 13, an 8th grader at The Bishop’s School in La Jolla of Christopher Sergel’s stage adaptation. “It satisfies that need in a reader to see the character, to put the name together with a face.” Theatre School staff happily relented to the Geissinger’s enthusiasm for the characters and insistence that the story of social outcasts resonates today, and are producing “The Outsiders” at the Solana Beach theater Nov. 29 to Dec. 2. “I have been so impressed by the talent, drive and professionalism of all the young actors in ‘The Outsiders’ cast,” said Siobhan Sullivan, the show’s director. “Their spirit is alive in each of the characters. . .truly bringing the book to life.” “The Outsiders” marks Sullivan’s debut as a director for the Theatre School and her inaugural show as its Director of Theatre School Education and Outreach. She has 20 years experience as a director for adults (both in Chicago and for

several local theaters) and youth, most recently serving as Artistic Director of Broadway Theatre Arts Academy and Performing Arts Manager/ Artistic Director for the Joan B. Kroc School of the Arts, Kroc Kids and Verge Theatre Company. Local actor Brian Mackey (named 2011 Actor of the Year by the San Diego Theatre Critic Circle) plays Dallas and serves as a mentor for the student actors. The story revolves around Ponyboy (played by Krut), Johnny (played by Geissinger), their fellow greasers and a vicious attack by the Socs (short for “socials” and pronounced “soashes”) that sets off a turbulent chain of conflict and death, ending with a understanding of the Front Row from left: Gabe Krut (Ponyboy) and Geoff Geissinger (Johnny); Back Row power of the written word. from left: Brian Mackey (Dallas), Noah Yatsko (Darry), Tanner Erdem (Jerry, Ponyboy The student cast is made understudy), Phillip Magin (Sodapop), and Creston Brown (Two-Bit) up of: Creston Brown (TwoCarmel Valley; Ann Ryan (Assistant Director/Sandy underBit) from Vista; Claire Chiswell (Mrs. O’Briant/Assistant Director/Dramaturg) La study) Carmel Valley; Cayla Surovsky (Marcia) Carmel ValMesa; Amanda Dodson (Assistant Director/Cherry under- ley; and, Noah Yatsko (Darry) La Mesa.

BY KELLEY CARLSON ust up the hill from Ellen Browning Scripps Park, and around the corner from the Village of La Jolla’s high-end shops, is a cozy restaurant that feels like home. Attracting locals and tourists alike, Cody’s has a warm, beach cottage atmosphere that is also subtly sophisticated. With a capacity for 85 people, the eatery elicits comfort, inside and outdoors. In the dining room, there’s a fireplace framed by autumn leaves and pumpkins, and wall-length benches are filled with pillows. The sea-green walls prominently display photos of mollusks, shells and starfish, and in the hallway are images of La Jolla shot by General Manager Amanda D’Orazio. An array of pastries on the counter tantalize customers, while directly underneath are racks of wine in six labels — three white, three red. The wooden floor shines from natural, soft light that filters in through the skylight and windows. Music — from ’80s tunes to jazz — fills the air. Bordered by a white picket fence, Cody’s patio wraps around three sides of the lemon chiffon-hued building.

Another factor that may add to one’s contentment while dining at Cody’s is the staff. Everyone has worked there for at least six years, with the exception of the owner, Adam Stearns, who took over the establishment six months ago. To fully appreciate Cody’s, Stearns advises patrons sit in one of the ocean-view seats on the patio and let the server provide some recommendations. For breakfast, that may be one of the Benedicts — Traditional Eggs or Crab Cake — or perhaps Stearns’ personal favorite,

From the patio at Cody’s, guests have a view of Ellen Browning Scripps Park and the ocean beyond. Chilaquiles, composed of tortilla chips sautéed in a Mexican tomato sauce over medium eggs and black beans, and topped with queso fresco and crème fraiche. At lunch, suggestions may include the Fish & Chips, with lean cod in a light tempura batter and hand-cut fries made from Kennebec potatoes; and an East Coaststyle Lobster Roll, featuring Maine lobster tossed in garlic aioli that is stuffed in a griddled Challah roll, which is complementary to the seafood and doesn’t overpower the flavor. For children, dishes range from Chocolate Chip Pancakes and “Holla” French Toast with strawberries, to Cheeseburger with fries and hummus with veggies and wheat crackers. To supplement grown-ups’ meals, there are seasonal cocktails, consisting of spritzers served in mason jars. Among the selections are Sparkling White Wine Sangria and the Blackberry Sage Spritzer. In addition, there are local craft beers from Stone, Green Flash, Coronado Brewing Co. and Ballast Point. Although Cody’s is mainly open in the daytime, private parties are occasionally held in the evenings. Stearns said plans are in the works for holiday dinners with prix fixe menus.

ArcLight Cinemas opens 14-screen theater at Westfield UTC mall BY ASHLEY MACKIN La Jolla’s Westfield mall at University Towne Center (UTC) is the new home of ArcLight Cinemas, a luxury movie theater with a few amenities not found in many theaters. It is also the first ArcLight Theater outside of Los Angeles County, and the fifth overall. ArcLight chose La Jolla as its branch-out location because, “San Diego is a fantastic movie-going market, they see movies at a higher rate than the national average,” said Gretchen McCourt, executive vice president of programming. A partnership with Westfield UTC sealed the location, as Westfield is in the process of renovating and adding new businesses. McCourt said the 14-screen theater would play a variety of films. “Traditionally, there’s been big mega-plexes that show the big blockbuster films and there have been the little art houses,” she said. “We have found a very successful way to merge both of those.” To ensure what she called a “disruption-free viewing environment,” McCourt said there will be no commercials or advertisements before the movies and no printed ads in the hallways. Instead, patrons will see only movie posters and stills for upcoming and now-playing films. Currently, there is a display of James Bond posters to promote “Skyfall.” This dis-

complements what is seen on the screen. When helicopters are coming in from the top left of the screen, only speakers from the top left of the theater project helicopter sounds. As they fly overhead, sound moves across the top of the theater. Other amenities include wider seats, popcorn made with real butter, and a café

that includes a full bar and food items sourced from local vendors. There is a 21-and-older lounge that serves alcohol that can be taken into one of three adults-only auditoriums. ArcLight CEO Nora Dashwood said all these little details add up to one big thing: “a great experience of going to the movies.”


ArcLight Cinemas is in the UTC shopping center, 4545 La Jolla Village Drive, Suite H60, near the intersection of La Jolla Village Drive and Genesee Avenue Show times and tickets:

play will change every few weeks. Promotional materials for the movie, “Wreck-It Ralph,” include functioning old video arcade games, such as Pac-Man. Future displays include costumes worn in “Anna Karenina.” To further contribute to the distractionfree environment, there is no late seating and seating is reserved by seat number. Those who arrive late may attend another showing. And the popcorn is not served in bags, “to avoid that crinkling noise.” Moviegoers can buy their tickets online, which are $11.75 Monday through Thursday and Friday through Saturday before 6 p.m.; and $13.50 Friday through Saturday after 6 p.m., Sundays and holidays. Through a free membership program, members save $1 on each ticket. With the Meyer and Dolby Atmos sound system found in certain screening rooms, the speakers generate sound that

In a season celebrating its 40th anniversary, UC San Diego Department of Theatre & Dance will present an array of productions with an experimental edge. The 2012-13 season opened Nov. 14 and ends April 27. “In total, our season features seven exceptional American plays, including four new productions in our spring New Play Festival; as well as two rarely seen classics by Shakespeare and Pirandello,” said department chair Jim Carmody. “We are also presenting a new site-specific dance performance in our Arts in Action series, plus two dance productions featuring new works by faculty and student choreographers.” Each season (fall, winter, spring) begins with a new group of MFA students, some of the most promising young artists in the nation.A scene from last season’s program.

Bike 4 Mike benefit at DM Fairgrounds


he inaugural Bike 4 Mike charity cycling event benefiting Team Godfather’s vision to find a cure for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) was held Nov. 4 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The event also honored beloved community member Mike Ramirez, who passed away earlier this year from ALS. Today, more than 150 families in San Diego are facing the tragedy of ALS. Also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a progressive disorder that destroys nerve cells that control voluntary muscle movement, and eventually causes paralysis. To learn more about the symptoms, diagnosis, progression, and science of ALS, visit; Also visit PHOTOS/JON CLARK

continued from page B1 ing their hair due to treatment. She uses all proceeds to help patients, and she’s in the process of setting up a foundation called Pink Angel. She’s also helping the owner of Julie’s Beachwear to decorate a store window with uplifting messages and pink gear for the thousands who will pass through Del Mar on Nov. 16 for the Susan G. Komen three-day walk. O’Brien said she has received a particularly positive response about the headscarves she has been making. She used to make them for herself when she lost her hair and she was inspired to keep making them after receiving loads of compliments when she wore them. “When you lose your hair, that’s the single weirdest day,” she said. “It starts coming off in clumps but there’s usually one day when you make the decision to either keep it or shave it off, and it doesn’t feel so great.” Having experienced every aspect of having cancer, O’Brien said she knows about the little things that

can make people feel better, and helping one’s self image during hair loss is one of those things. O’Brien said after her mom, who ran the public relations firm O’Brien Communications in downtown Del Mar for more than a decade, passed away from appendix cancer at age 65, she never saw herself becoming the soldier she considered her mom to be. “I remember once having a conversation with a friend and saying, ‘I don’t know what I would do if it ever happened to me.’ I said I didn’t think I’d be strong enough,” she said. “But then, boom, it happens and you are strong enough. You become your own soldier in your own army and you are responsible for pulling it together and taking each day as it comes.” For more information on the O’Brien sisters, to make a donation or to buy a shirt or headscarf, visit O’Brien can also be reached at (760) 423-9652 or by emailing

CONTEST continued from page B1 and Preakness,” Hellmers was quoted as saying in Daily Racing Form. “I ran two great races but just got caught by someone better on those particular days. These tournaments remind me of my engineering finals at UCLA, trying to analyze everything that is going on. I bet $2,000 to win on Fort Larned, but it didn’t end up being enough. Anyone can say they would have done something different in hindsight, but when you’re holding tens of thousands of dollars, that’s a lot harder to do. This contest is a game within a game within a game.” The Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge is the nation’s largest live money handicapping contest. A record 138 players entered the contest this year, which required a $10,000 buy-in and featured $370,000 in prize money. Players also keep the winnings they have accumulated. The top six finishers also earned berths into the Daily Racing Form/National Thoroughbred Racing Association National Handicapping Championship finals to be held Jan. 25-26, 2013 in Las Vegas at the Treasure Island Resort Casino.

Many showed their support by participating in the spin class.

All thawed out The Thanksgiving bird must be completely defrosted before it enters the oven. If a frozen bird is roasted, you can expect to start carving it by Christmas Day. The neophyte doesn’t realize that a an unstuffed bird takes 20 minutes per pound, and a stuffed one 30 minutes per pound — once it is unthawed! Cook’s tip: Best way to defrost the holiday bird is in the refrigerator, breast side up in the original wrapping, allowing 24 hours for each 4 pounds. A turkey weighing 15 pounds would take about 4 days to unthaw. Well done It’s a slippery slope cooking turkey just right like Baby Bear’s porridge. The bird must be cooked through to avoid salmonella, while if over-cooked, it resembles the texture of a pigskin football. A meat thermometer is an ideal way to check for doneness, however, many folks have had the misfortune of improperly using the thermometer with the results of having it snap in half with the red fluid (colored alcohol) leaking into the meat. Although the old thermometers contained highly toxic mercury, you still don’t want a foreign substance in your food. So stick it to the bird with caution in the thickest part of the thigh without touching the bone. When the temperature reaches 180 degrees, the bird is done. Also the stuffing


temperature should reach 165 degrees to indicate doneness. Cavity fillings Popcorn belongs in a movie theater not in a turkey’s cavity. Other cavity no-nos: raw oysters, eggs and wild rice. Standing advice? Raw in, raw out, so sauté or par cook grains, potatoes, sausages and other perishables to avoid food kooties and broken teeth. And please, don’t forget to remove the plastic giblet bag from the cavity before roasting. Relish the thought Super tart cranberries require a large amount of sweetener to counter the lip-puckering sourness. But when one novice cook mistakenly used salt instead of sugar, dinner guests had a sodium shock. Monster mash Many things can go awry with mashed potatoes, a quintessential fave at Thanksgiving tables. While russets are the best candidates creating the fluffiest, creamiest mashed spuds, some folks use redskins or Yukon Golds, making them grainy and chunky. Another common culinary faux pas occurs when the potatoes are whipped up in a blender or food processor yielding edible Epoxy. Burn, baby, burn Barbecue gurus are obsessed with doing the turkey in a deep-fryer. If you must, take the whole mess outside. For more recipes, email or check out

Drunken Cranberry Relish Ingredients 6 cups fresh cranberries 1/2 cup golden raisins 2 oranges, zest grated and sectioned 2 lemons, zest grated and sectioned (I prefer Meyers) 1 Bartlett pear, peeled, diced 2 cups brown sugar (adjust to taste) 1 tablespoon of candied ginger, chopped 1 3/4 cups water 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans 2 tablespoons of Grand Marnier

Method In a large saucepan combine sugar, ginger, liquor and water, reserving a quarter cup. Stir and bring to a boil until the sugar is dissolved. Add the citrus, raisins and 3 cups of cranberries and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the remaining cranberries, water, pear and nuts, and simmer for 10 minutes. Refrigerate and serve in a martini glass or brandy snifter.
