No significant impacts found for Skyline School reconstruction BY KAREN BILLING Following the passing of the Prop JJ general obligation bond in November, the Solana Beach School District (SBSD) is getting ready to start moving this year on the reconstruction of 62-year-old Skyline Elementary School. The Coastal Commission has approved the complete remodel and on Feb. 9 the district approved a resolution adopting a mitigated negative declaration (MND) in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The negative declaration means that all potential environmental impacts of the project are not significant or that measures can be taken to lessen the impacts. SBSD Superintendent Terry Decker said with the implementation of mitigation measures included in the resolution, the potentially significant impacts would be mitigated to levels below significance. Those measures include minimizing traffic by using off-site parking for SEE SKYLINE SCHOOL, A10

BY JOE TASH Tickets for the first-ever Breeders’ Cup horse race to be held at the Del Mar Race Track, one of the premier events on the sport’s annual calendar, are set to go on sale to the public March 6. An executive with the Breeders’ Cup gave an update on planning for the event, set for Nov. 3-4, to the board of the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which oversees the state-owned Del Mar Fairgrounds and race track, at its meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 14. “We’re so excited to show the world what Del Mar is about,” said Drew Fleming, senior vice president with the Breeders’ Cup organization. “This is the Super Bowl of horse racing,” said Tim Fennell, CEO and general manager of the fairgrounds. The Breeders’ Cup includes two days of horse racing, with a total of 13 races — plus an “under-card,” with purses and awards totaling $28 million, Fleming said. “It’s the world’s richest two days of racing,” he said. A Breeders’ Cup festival, which will start about a week before the races, will include such events as a golf tournament, concerts and a 10k run, said Fleming in an interview after the meeting. The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, host for the Breeder’s Cup, has proposed erecting a large party tent in Del Mar’s Powerhouse Park for events, and that request is pending approval by city officials.

Construction crew turns fairgrounds parking lot into tidal wetland BY JOE TASH A construction crew is digging up thousands of cubic yards of dirt from a former parking lot next to the Del Mar Fairgrounds as part of an ambitious plan to restore the property to a tidal wetland, as it existed long before humans began developing the North County coast. The work, which began in September,

represents the second phase of a project to restore about 15 acres, used for decades as a dirt parking lot for the San Diego County Fair and other events, into natural habitat for birds, fish, mammals and plants. SEE HABITAT, A10

Del Mar digs new Civic Center

BY PHIL DIEHL Del Mar’s new $17.8 million Civic Center is at last rising on the same ocean-view property that held the old City Hall, a converted brick elementary school that had been the city’s headquarters since 1975. The Civic Center project “is probably 30 years in the planning, or more,” said former Councilman Al Corti, a real estate developer who continues to serve as a liaison between the City Council, the contractor, and others involved in the construction. From the beginning, city officials discussed building more than just a City Hall on the Camino Del Mar property, which is on the west side of the road between 10th and 11th streets. They wanted additional parking for nearby merchants and guests at special events, and they wanted a public plaza to serve as a meeting place and to host outdoor PHIL DIEHL activities such as concerts, weddings and more. SEE CIVIC CENTER, A25 Del Mar’s new Civic Center takes shape along Camino Del Mar.

Fairgrounds employees set to receive $500 ‘thank you’ BY JOE TASH Directors with the board that oversees the state-owned Del Mar Fairgrounds have decided to reward their employees for their work in 2016 with $500 gift cards that can be used to purchase gasoline or goods at local merchants. The board of the 22nd District Agricultural Association approved the employee recognition awards at its meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 14. The district has about 180 full-time employees who are eligible for the award, and most are expected to receive the full amount of $500, said Tim Fennell, CEO and general manager for the fairgrounds. Fennell and his two deputy general managers are not eligible. The Superior Accomplishment Awards

Your greatest asset is your people, and the two most powerful words in the English language are, ‘Thank you.’

— Tim Fennell Del Mar Fairgrounds CEO/general manager Program, as it is called by the state, helps boost employee “morale and team spirit,” Fennell wrote in a report to the board. He noted in the report that the 22nd DAA’s net income for 2016, minus depreciation, was $3.7 million. The district’s 2017 operating budget includes expenses of $75.4 million. “I know it’s important,” Fennell said of the reward program in an interview. “Our results demonstrate that. Your greatest asset is your people, and the two most powerful words in the English language are, ‘Thank

you.’ This is a major thank you.” The award for employees who did not work all of 2016 at the fairgrounds will be pro-rated, Fennell said. Each employee will be evaluated separately, and Fennell estimated that 10 to 15 percent would not receive awards. The program has been in place since 1998, and was suspended in 2008, following the financial downturn, and again in 2011 and 2012 at the request of state officials, amid concerns that it did not comply with state personnel rules. It was reinstated about three years ago and the awards have been given to employees annually since then, Fennell said. Employees will have their choice of gift cards from merchants such as Target or Home Depot or gasoline stations, he said.

Happy Birthday Solana Highlands School!

School turning 30 years old will be updated this summer

BY KAREN BILLING Solana Highlands Elementary School is turning the big 3-0 in 2017 and two teachers have been at the Carmel Valley school since the beginning in 1987: transitional kindergarten teacher Debbie Keller and first grader teacher Tarri Baldwin. Baldwin said it is hard to believe it’s been 30 years since the school opened and so much has changed as the school has grown. When she started there were only 10 teachers in grades kindergarten through fifth. “Half of the school was still under construction, we had a classroom on stage and a mini science lab in the upper media center. We didn’t have interior doors so the sound from one class drifted to others down the hall,” Baldwin wrote in a reflection read at the Feb. 9 Solana Beach School District board meeting. “This was my first teaching job and I was so lucky to be hired here back in 1987. I continue to feel blessed every day teaching in such a wonderful school.” Baldwin said she also recalls those early days and everyone being really excited about

She wrote that she was excited even though there were two kindergarten classrooms with an “unimaginable” 32 kids each — as a contrast, she was in one kindergarten classroom last week with a more manageable group of five. “We had a much different population and our curriculum was much less academic,” SEE SOLANA HIGHLANDS, A26

Pain no longer par for the course

Hip replacement recipient serves as honorary observer at Farmers Insurance Open BY KAREN BILLING ollowing a hip replacement surgery in October 2016, Rancho Santa Fe resident Ray Barshick has been able to fully embrace his active lifestyle again, pain-free for the first time in years. At the Farmers Insurance Open on Jan. 29, Barshick served as an honorary observer on behalf of Stryker Orthopaedics, the official joint replacement products of the PGA Tour and the product that got Barshick moving again. As part of his honorary status, Barshick got the chance to walk inside the ropes with PGA golfers in an area typically off limits for tournament attendees, following Keegan Bradley’s group. Barshick took the time to study the professional golfers up-close, taking note of their balance, rotation and approach to each swing for his next time out on the green. “It was a spectacular day out there, to watch the guys do what they do at the very top level,” Barshick said. The day was also lot of walking — a little over seven miles — but the hip held up easily with no pain. Always very active, 64-year-old Barshick asked a lot of his hips. He is an avid golfer, skier and the co-founder of Chuze Fitness chain. While golfing in Ireland a few years ago, he started feeling a severe pain in his groin. Paired with chronic back pain, he couldn’t do much of anything or even get a proper diagnosis because he was sure the problem was in his groin or his spine, where the pain was radiating from. While golfing with a cardiologist friend last year, he was in so much pain that he had to use his hand to be able to pick up his leg — he wasn’t able to do it without assistance. The friend suggested something he hadn’t even thought of: “You should have your hip looked at.” The next week, Barshick visited Dr. Steven Copp of Scripps Ambulatory Surgery Center in La Jolla. Through x-rays, he was able to see all the damage in the ball and socket of his hip joints – it was bone- on-bone due to the loss of cartilage, contributing to severe osteoarthritis. Because the pain didn’t come out of his hip, Barshick had no idea that it was the issue but Copp said that his symptoms were actually quite classic for advanced osteoarthritis of the hip. Copp said many individuals when they first have the onset of symptoms believe that they have a groin muscle pull. Barshick wasn’t nervous or concerned at all about having the surgery, as it was not his first time — the hip surgery was his sixth surgery and third replacement. “Being as athletic as I’ve been, I’ve had a lot of stuff come back to haunt me. I feel very fortunate that I’m alive in this frame of medicine,” Barshick said of his operations on

Rancho Santa Fe’s Ray Barshick served as a Stryker Orthopaedics honorary observer at the Farmers Insurance Open. his knee and shoulder, a neck fusion and heart ablation surgery. “I’m still able to do all the things I like because of these miracle surgeries.” According to Copp, total hip arthoplasty has gone through a four-decade process of refinement in materials utilized for the implants, surgical technique and patient care, resulting in rapid recovery with an “incredibly high success rate” and less time in the hospital. “In addition, the newest materials allow for an expectation of 20 to 30 years of service of the implant. This expectation is based on the reduced wear of the implant that occurs in spite of the millions of cycles of movement that occur in an individual’s life each year,” Copp said. “These advances have allowed the expected activities of individuals to almost unlimited in comparison to our recommendations in prior generations of hip implants.” Copp said the typical age for hip replacement is between 65 and 75 and as materials and techniques have improved, they have been willing to care for patients who are much younger. Surgery is indicated as a recommendation for patients when alternatives of medications or activity modification are unsuccessful or when living with pain from arthritis in the hip threatens quality of life or an individuals’ safety. “Total hip surgery is one of the most reliable and satisfying surgeries in our specialty field,” Copp said. The morning after his hip replacement, the pain Barshick had been living with for years was gone. There was the pain from the surgery, Barshick said, but it paled in comparison to what he had been experiencing — he knew it was just a matter of doing his rehab, being patient and letting everything heal. He even felt like golfing as soon as two weeks after his surgery, but was cautioned against it to allow the necessary time for the bone to grow into the implant. Eight weeks after receiving the Stryker Total Hip, he was cleared to pick up his clubs again, and he did so with gusto. “This is amazing stuff. The replacement

TPHS alum releases third novel in epic fantasy series BY ROB LEDONNE Matthew Wolf, the Torrey Pines High School alum and successful novelist, has been learning how to deal with a relatively new phenomenon for him. “It’s weird, in the best way possible, being face to face with my fans,” Wolf explains. “One time, at Tulsa Comic Con I was at my booth and a huge man threaded through the crowds. With a brimming smile his hand engulfed mine like a watermelon and he thanked me heartily for such a great series in booming baritone. I told him thank you in return and that the third book would be out soon. He pointed to his arm and said ‘goosebumps.’” Wolf has been garnering nationwide praise and acclaim ever since he began writing The Ronin Saga, a fantasy series that recently released its third installment that blends elements of Lord of the Rings and Knights of the Roundtable. Dubbed Bastion of Sun, the third story continues the story that began in book one, The Knife’s Edge, and where book two, Citadel of Fire, left off. The release of Bastion of Sun is thanks to a successful Kickstarter Wolf launched last summer. “The Kickstarter was great,” Wolf explains. “I was blown away by the support and sincerity of the new and loyal fans. People really just came out of the woodwork, and we had multiple backers who

and his own - Wolf spent three long years writing Bastion of Sun. “Three years was way too long for me,” he admits. “But that’s what was required to write this book. Anything else would have been a sacrifice to the characters and the series as a whole.” Now, the fruits of Wolf’s labor are on full display, with voracious readers across the country devouring each book. “I almost feel unworthy of how much people enjoy the Saga,” he notes. “(The fan’s) affection of the Saga is infectious. It’s that love of great fantasy that pushes me to write richer characters, vaster dynamic landscapes, and to keep people on their toes.” Bastion of Sun is available now on Amazon.com.

Wolf was only 18 when he began work on the Ronin Saga, and back then he wasn’t sure how many books should make up the series. “I eventually settled on nine,” he remembers. “Why nine? It sounded less intimidating than 10 and more impressive than eight.” Wolf also has high hopes for the story’s future. “The Saga is only the beginning.

Constructing a love of math

Local math teacher Yana Mohanty invents learning tool Geometiles BY KAREN BILLING There’s nothing more exciting for Carmel Valley math teacher Yana Mohanty than when something clicks and a student makes a connection between classroom math and the real world. Mohanty has launched her own math educational tool, Geometiles, to ensure that those clicks and connections are happening more frequently and to build excitement for a subject that sometimes struggles with a bad reputation. Geometiles are a colorful and versatile set of interlocking tiles in shapes such as triangles, squares,

rectangles and hexagons meant to make math fun and accessible and boost students’ confidence. The tool is accompanied by an online resource library developed by Mohanty filled with workbooks, instruction manuals, lesson plans, problems and brain teasers that meet Common Core State Standards. The learning tools have already found their way into numerous schools across the country. “My main goal is for kids to have a more positive feeling about math and geometry,” Mohanty said, adding that she hopes that positive feeling will affect

Book details life of influential basketball coach Phog Allen BY JOE TASH Forrest “Phog” Allen, a legendary basketball coach at the University of Kansas, was a man of contradictions - he is credited with guiding his sport into national prominence and recruiting such famed players as Wilt Chamberlain, but he also had a cantankerous side which led him to butt heads with many people throughout his career. Sports journalist Scott Morrow Johnson will talk about his new book, “PHOG - The Most Scott Influential Man in Morrow Basketball,” at an event set Johnson for 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18, at the Rancho Santa Fe Library, 17040 Avenida de Acacias. Refreshments will be served, Johnson will answer questions after his talk and signed copies of the book will be available for purchase. The event is sponsored by the Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild. The “family friendly” event is free and open to the public, said Susan Appleby, executive director of the library guild. The author’s parents, Fran and Bill Johnson, are Rancho Santa Fe residents and active in the community. Johnson lives in Seattle with his family, where he works part-time as a freelance sports writer, and also has recently embarked on a new career as a substance abuse counselor.

The cover of Scott Morrow Johnson’s book “PHOG - The Most Influential Man in Basketball.” journalistic career, came upon Phog Allen’s story through his mother, who introduced him to Judy Allen Morris, the coach’s granddaughter. Johnson said in an interview that Morris had a lot of stories and memories about her grandfather, as well as a trove of letters and other documents, and was anxious to

have Phog Allen’s story told. Several writers had worked on Phog Allen biographies over the years, but had not seen the projects through to publication, said Johnson, and he became determined to get the story in print. Johnson’s book was published by the University of Nebraska Press in November, and is available on Amazon.com. In setting out to tell the story, Johnson said, he wanted to chronicle episodes in Phog Allen’s life that hadn’t been written about before, such as the sudden death of his 14-year-old son from a blood clot. “That was part of the challenge of the book. I wanted to tell his whole life story from birth to death and not leave anything out,” Johnson said. According to Johnson, Phog Allen played under James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, who also coached at Kansas. While Naismith envisioned basketball as a way for people to have fun and stay in shape, Phog Allen saw its potential as a spectator sport, and had a hand in major developments, such as rule changes, the establishment of the NCAA tournament, now popular as March Madness, and even working to get the sport into the Olympics. “He helped market and advance the sport for 50 years,” Johnson said, raising its profile, popularity and profitability. “I think he did more for (basketball) than anyone in the history of the game.” His got his nickname, Johnson said, because people thought his booming voice SEE BOOK, A24

Construction will begin in June on the complete remodel, which includes 33 new classrooms representing an increase of three from the current campus configuration. The parking lot will also see an additional 22 spaces. During the 14-month reconstruction, students will attend school at Earl Warren Middle School’s interim campus across the street. The global education program will also be re-located temporarily to Solana Highlands Elementary School. The city of Solana Beach reviewed the district’s MND document and had comments about the traffic circulation impacts as well as pedestrian circulation. The city recommended that the existing sidewalk along Lomas Santa Fe be widened to accommodate pedestrians. The district has noted the city’s

And time is pretty precious.” suggestion and said it would continue to coordinate with the city as they continue work redesigning street standards on the Lomas Santa Fe corridor. The MND noted that the school currently has an internal walkway that provides access to Lomas Santa Fe without having students cross any of the school driveways. In response to the city’s comments about traffic circulation, the district responded that a study has been conducted and they do not believe a mitigation will be required. Approximately 330 Skyline students will begin school on the Earl Warren campus at 8:55 a.m., 10 minutes after the end of the peak hour of morning traffic on Stevens Avenue. Skyline will end at 3:05 p.m., 15 minutes after the end of Earl Warren’s day. The MND states that the traffic generated by Skyline students during these times would be less than the average 680 Earl Warren students. Skyline will provide free busing to transport approximately 180 global education students to Solana Highlands Elementary School from the parking lot of Solana Beach Presbyterian Church.

FROM HABITAT, A1 In 2013, the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which runs the state-owned fairgrounds, agreed to restore its south overflow lot in exchange for permission from the California Coastal Commission to use another dirt lot, to the east of the fairgrounds, for parking and events such as annual pumpkin and Christmas tree sales. Construction workers using heavy equipment are digging out channels and shaping islands and fingers of land in order to allow the property to flood twice each day with the high tide, said Mark Laska, president of Great Ecology, an environmental consultant to the contractor, Marathon Construction Corp. “By excavating it, we’ll make it a tidal wetland,” said Laska. “That’s a dramatic change.” By the time the project is completed in late March, workers will have excavated some 45,000 cubic yards of dirt. About 10,000 cubic feet will remain on the property to be used for land formations, while about 35,000 cubic feet will be hauled away to the landfill, said Joe Ellis, the construction superintendent. The 22nd DAA is spending $2.25 million on the second phase of restoration project, said Dustin Fuller, supervising environmental planner with the agency. An earlier, smaller restoration project adjacent to the current project site cost $1.5 million and was completed in early 2015. When the second phase is completed, which consists of about 12 acres, a total of 15 acres of wetland will have been restored. The work is essentially reversing actions carried out decades ago, when fill dirt was brought in to prevent flooding of the property. It has been used as a parking lot since the late 1960s or early 1970s, Fuller said. The transformation of the parking lot into a

tidal wetland will occur in three steps, said Laska. First, the flat parking lot is being excavated to remove the fill. Second, the land will be contoured to allow for tidal inundation and to create varied elevations. Finally, some 35,000 plants will be brought in. Some will be salt-tolerant for the low lying areas, while others, such as sage and buckwheat, will be planted in upland areas, said Michelle Landis, project manager with Great Ecology. The restoration won’t include stocking the project area with fish, birds or other animals, said Laska. “Our attitude is, if we build it, they will come,” he said, noting that numerous studies of such restorations have shown that once tidal inundation is restored and plant life is introduced, fish and wildlife will follow on their own. “The philosophy is we make the habitat and the birds, insects, mammals and fish will find it,” he said. He estimated that once the restoration is complete, the area may be home to as many as 125 to 150 bird species. The restored wetland will also offer benefits for human visitors, said Fuller. Interpretive signs and a bench are in the works, and the project includes construction of a section of the Coast to Crest Trail, which will eventually link Vulcan Mountain near Julian to the beach at Del Mar. A bus ramp and turnaround will be available as a parking area for trail users when events such as the fair and horse races are not going on, Fuller said. Once the restoration is completed, said Laska, it should closely resemble nearby natural areas in terms of its plant and animal species. “We expect we’ll end up with a fantastic natural system when this is fully constructed,” he said.

Kindergartner Sierra gives students in Georgia the weather report from San Diego.

Live STREAM: Students learn via Skype at Carmel Creek BY KAREN BILLING Carmel Creek Elementary School is using technology to bring ideas and lessons from all over the country and world into the classrooms in Carmel Valley. Last week, students were participating in two Global Connections projects designed by Laurie Narmore, the STREAM teacher on special assignment. In kindergarten, Megan Laughlin’s students are learning about weather from a class in Marietta, Georgia. The students

Skype each other to get updates on the weather and pre-record videos to share. Both classrooms are charting the weather data and making comparisons. When it’s time to Skype, Laughlin calls out “Georgia!” and the students rush to their desks to fix their eyes on the screen and see their little friends across the country. One student is tasked with giving the day’s weather report, noting if it feels windy or warm outside and what SEE SKYPE, A24

From junkyard to joyous: Rescued puppies ready for adoption To find a jewel among the litter in a junkyard is rare, but the true treasures salvaged from an East Los Angeles junkyard two weeks ago were not only plentiful, they were actual litters of puppies. Helen Woodward Animal Center staff workers have seen their fair share of “ruff” cases, but the latest group of pups to arrive at the center (19 in all) survived a scenario few can imagine. Bred wild on the property by junkyard dogs, the puppies chance at survival were slim. A call to the center from a Santa Clarita rescue partner changed all that and with Valentine’s Day this week, the renamed “Sweetheart” puppies have been prepping for their big reveal, with some GALentines Day pampering! Found 70 miles east of Los Angeles on the edge of the Mojave Desert, the junkyard puppies were a mix of four to five litters, four- to-six-weeks old and included lab, shepherd and terrier blends. Left to fend for themselves, unaltered, with no vaccinations, nourishment or medical care, the likelihood of a happy ending seemed impossible. An independent rescue group, however, had the courage to enter the junkyard and convince the owner to let them bring the pups to Helen Woodward Animal Center. The 19 “Sweetheart” puppies (named after heart-happy, loving nicknames like Sweetie, Honey, Baby and Sugar) have thrived under center medical and foster care and will go available this Valentine’s week. “These puppies really fit their names,” stated Helen Woodward Animal Center Inventory Manager LaBeth Thompson.

The girl puppies celebrated “GALentine’s Day” Feb. 13. “They are so loving and want nothing more than to snuggle and find a cozy lap. It’s incredible because they really knew no human kindness until they came here but now they’re ready to accept all the love and happiness any person is willing to give.” In preparation for their big reveal, the girl puppies celebrated GALentine’s Day (Feb. 13) by treating themselves to a tail-wagging time – shopping for snuggly sweaters, scarfing down brunch and getting spa treatments and paw-dicures. The “Sweetheart Puppies” will be available for adoption at Helen Woodward Animal Center this week. If you would like to adopt one of these rescues, please contact the Adoptions Department at: 858-756-4117 ext. 1, visit www.animalcenter.org or stop by at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe.

Morgan Run Women’s Open Tennis Tournament

Local teams participate in First LEGO League Jr. Expo On Feb. 5, two local teams presented at the First LEGO League Jr. Expo at Legoland California. First LEGO League Jr. is a fun, hands-on program that introduces concepts in science, technology, engineering and math to children ages 6 to 10. The challenge this season was called Creature Craze and involved learning about honey bees, why they are important, and to understand their interaction with another animal that lives within the same habitat.

The Morgan Run Women’s Open, the longest actively running women’s professional tennis tournament in Southern California, returns to Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe Feb. 19-26. Entry to the event is free throughout the week. Spectators will be rewarded with unprecedented access to the rising stars of the women’s pro tennis tour. The Rancho Santa Fe tournament celebrates its 7th anniversary with 64 players competing in qualifying matches Feb.19-21, eight of whom will gain entry into the main draw. On Feb. 21, main draw matches begin as top-ranked players, qualifying players, and “wild card” contestants compete to raise the trophy as the 2017

The teams did their own research which included field trips to local nature centers, discussions with expert university researchers, and studying the information contained in the First LEGO League Jr. engineering notebooks. Finally, both teams presented their work with a LEGO model, a Show Me poster, and answered questions from the judges. These two teams were among approximately 7,000 teams that participated worldwide.

Carmel Valley Select basketball tryouts Feb. 19-20 Several local teenagers are looking for young athletes to play on the first Carmel Valley Select basketball teams. Torrey Pines High School and Canyon Crest Academy student-coaches Milad Ghaemi, Hassan Alamar, Rajit Agarwal and Chris Koo hope to field at least three teams of third through eighth graders to compete in the San Diego

Sol Basketball League. Milad, a CCA student, said he and the coaches started planning the league in the winter. They are all interested in sports but wanted to form a league that better helped kids develop and grow as a whole. A lot of them played on competitive teams as kids and felt they weren’t always taught the lessons they

could’ve been. “We want to use our experience to help kids learn not just sports but to succeed everywhere. Sports can help you learn life lessons,” Milad said. Carmel Valley Select tryouts will be held on March 10-12 at Ocean Air Recreation Center. The Feb. 19-20 tryouts will be held from 8 a.m. to noon at

the Carmel Valley Recreation Center. They will be holding one-on-one workouts for free for any hesitant players who want to see how the program works. The season runs until June and practices will be held Wednesdays and Fridays after school for weekend games. For information, email carmelvalleyselect@gmail.com

Local resident Robert J. Francavilla named ‘Trial Lawyer of the Year’ Carmel Valley resident and CaseyGerry partner Robert J. Francavilla was named 2016 Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego (CASD) during the organization’s 58th Annual Awards and Installation Dinner, held recently at the Westin San Diego downtown. Every year, CASD, a local organization of trial lawyers dedicated to preserving and protecting the legal rights of consumers, holds a dinner to install its board of directors and celebrate the accomplishments of San Diego attorneys. Also honored this year were Arthur H. Bryant as consumer advocate of the year, Honorable Ronald S. Prager as judge of the year and assembly member Shirley N. Weber as legislator of the year. The CASD Trial Lawyer of the Year Award is given to a San Diego County-based attorney who has achieved outstanding jury verdicts involving a civil or criminal matter. Francavilla has achieved numerous high profile results over the last year, including a $7.6 million jury verdict in a product liability case. Known for taking on high profile, complex cases, he focuses his practice on serious personal injury, head trauma and wrongful death cases and has achieved dozens of multi-million dollar results in recent years.

“This is the highest honor a trial lawyer can receive in San Diego,” said CaseyGerry’s managing partner David S. Casey Jr. “We are thrilled at Robert’s latest achievement and strongly support him has he continues to fight for justice on behalf of his clients.” Francavilla has been lauded on numerous occasions for his trial work and was most recently recognized as an “Outstanding Trial Lawyer” at CASD’s “Evening with the Trial Stars” awards dinner, marking the sixth time he has Robert J. Francavilla received that honor. Also named one of California’s top 25 plaintiff’s lawyers by the Daily Journal, he is a past president of the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego and is a member of the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), an organization comprised of the country’s leading plaintiff and defense trial counsel. He holds both his B.B.A. and J.D. from the University of San Diego.

Admittedly, the view from the top is grand.

Seaweeder Garden Tip: The Zen of weeding A wealth of recent rains have generated one of the secret joys of spring gardening: Weeding! Joyful weeding? Indeed. Pulling weeds isn’t only good for your garden, it can be good for you, too. Aside from the bending and stretching, weeding provides for quiet, peaceful, and very intimate time with your garden. Many gardeners find the process meditative and calming. The key is to tackle just enough of the task -- pick a

small section and set a timer. Work while the soil is still damp and soft. Reach for the base, twist and tug. Try using a screwdriver or even an old fork to help lift the whole root. And enjoy the accomplishment: weeding for even few minutes a day will reward your plants and your soul. --This tip is courtesy of the Seaweeders Garden Club of Solana Beach (www.seaweedersgardenclub.org)

The boys played great team basketball to go undefeated in league play en route to the championship, defeating Carlsbad High 54-37.

LONG-TERM CARE is the #1 Financial Risk faces by retirees. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, at least 70 percent of people over 65 will eventually need long-term care, either at home or in a nursing home, and that can be very expensive. The average stay for a woman entering a nursing home is almost four years; if she’s in a semiprivate room that costs in San Diego is about $375,000. For married couples, the chances that one spouse will need long-term care rises to 91%.

The victory came on the heels of a disappointing loss at Torrey Pines 67-52 earlier in the week. The game at Torrey Pines (24-3) was closer than the final score indicated. CCA led midway through the third quarter before the Falcons took advantage of CCA foul trouble who struggled to contain Torrey’s large front line in the second half.

It does exist, but it’s not such a serious problem requiring a UN global carbon tax of trillions of dollars that will have little-to-no effect and destroy the economies of Africa. Valerie and Jack are misinformed and perpetuate the false narrative, fake science and mainstream news parroting. There is no 97 percent consensus. Mr. Cook et al’s study has been refuted by the Friends of Science analysis that found his methodology and stats flawed. It’s only 0.5 percent as out of the 11,000 papers there were only 41 supporting the alarmists. Gore’s film has nine major flaws, most notably the Mann hockey stick chart, according to Dr. Jake Herbert. The documentary “Climate Hustle” consists of interviews with experts who are climatologists, geologists, physicists and other environmental scientists who all are skeptical of the alarmists’ data and fake science. Lord Monckton has released a paper that demonstrates via a mathematical analysis that there’s a major error in the computer modeling calculation. A leading climatologist concurs. The Weather Channel founder has stated that climate change isn’t a serious problem. Dr. Michael Crichton’s book, “State of Fear,” documents with a 30-page bibliography that the CO2 emissions aren’t so serious. He’s also debated the issue, while Al Gore refuses to

s Del Mar considers the future of its rail corridor, I suggest that, rather than digging expensive new tunnels under or around Del Mar, we simply bury the tracks where they are. Take a walk with me to the foot of Fourth Street (Del Mar Heights Road) and then north along the bluff above the train tracks. You will see that, on most of the passage through Del Mar, the tracks and the trains run well below the level of the bluff top where we are walking. So why not just cover the tracks where they are? Build

a concrete wall to the west of the tracks and a concrete roof above the tracks. Cover the new roof with dirt, grass and landscaping, thus substantially widening the bluff-top park. The new tunnel could have “windows” in the wall to allow train patrons to see the ocean. Some lowering of the tracks may be involved near Seagrove Park. And a short tunnel would be needed to take trains under Coast Blvd. near the old Del Mar station. This plan is much less expensive than a proposed tunnel under the length of

Camino del Mar – and much less disruptive to local businesses. I lived in Berkeley when BART was being built and saw the high costs paid by the businesses on Shattuck Avenue. Many went out of business. The railroad should like this plan because it would allow them to double-track through Del Mar – their long-standing dream. If the tracks are buried, it doesn’t matter if there are two rather than one. This plan also would solve the problem of surfers and beachgoers illegally crossing railroad right of way by

You have been invited multiple times to attend a town hall meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 21, from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at Jim Porter Recreation Center, 1200 Vale Terrace Drive, Vista, CA, to discuss your proposed repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act. To date, you have failed to respond. Please man up, show up and hear our voices! Sharon Rosen Leib Solana Beach

Thank you Rajy Abulhosn I am writing to voice my support for Rajy Abulhosn’s letter of Feb. 9. With the rise of white supremacy in our government, it is so important that schools make every student feel safe. Chanting “build that wall” would be a horrific jibe for some students to hear. We all should be shocked at this meanness and be taking measures to ensure that all students receive bias training. Kindness is the new competitive edge. Many successful businesses have figured this out even if our president hasn’t. Jennifer Ball Solana Beach

providing expanded park space above the tracks. Some will argue that the bluffs are too unstable and that the trains must be moved inland and undergrounded. But the tracks last failed in 1941. I believe the railroad has the know-how to stabilize two tracks on the existing bluff. Indeed, covering the tracks entirely would reduce erosion of the rail bed. I think Del Mar got it right in 1910 when the tracks were removed from

Stratford Court (once called Railroad Avenue) to their current location on the bluff. Thus, unlike Solana Beach, Cardiff, Encinitas, and Leucadia, the rail line does not slice through the Del Mar business district.

FROM BOOK, A9 sounded like a foghorn. Allen coached at Kansas for nearly 40 years, winning his first and only national championship in 1952, shortly before his retirement. His career was marked by great achievement but also famous spats, such as a falling out with Naismith, his early coach and mentor, as well as other figures in the sport. One such rift led him to miss out on the 1936 Olympics, which the U.S. team won, even though he had been instrumental in getting the sport included in the games, Johnson said. “He rubbed some people the wrong way,” Johnson said. Another disappointment, said Johnson, came in 1956, shortly after Allen had recruited Wilt Chamberlain, who went on to become one of the game’s greatest players. Allen wanted to coach one more year and make a run at the NCAA championship with his new star player, but the university declined to grant him a waiver from a rule requiring mandatory

FROM MATH, A8 five and up to develop a deeper understanding of how to solve problems. Mohanty also co-founded the San Diego Math Teachers’ Circle, coaching local teachers. In addition, she coaches the sixth grade Ocean Air Math Club, a dedicated and talented group of students that meets at 7:10 a.m. before school. Throughout her years of math instruction, Mohanty’s teaching style was always a more hands-on approach and Geometiles were born out of that desire to teach a subject in a more engaging way. The original idea for the product took shape in 2009 but it looked very different than it does today. She had been asked to speak at a teaching conference and was looking for a way to illustrate geometric thinking, a way of analyzing and classifying objects in the world around us, such as floor tile patterns or wallpaper. Her initial idea was two-dimensional puzzle pieces with different wallpaper-like patterns to assemble, which she made at home with plastic sheets and a heavy-duty craft-cutting machine. The feedback she received was that people liked them but wished the pieces would stick

retirement at age 70. While Allen’s descendents are still Jayhawks, as Kansas fans are known, they still bear some animosity toward the university for that decision, Johnson said. Still, Allen remains a towering figure at the school, with the field house where the basketball team plays named in his honor. “He’s a huge deal there,” Johnson said. “Everyone in Kansas knows his name, but not everyone knows what he meant to the game, how influential and what a pioneer he was for taking the game to the masses.” Johnson’s own family has ties to the University of Kansas and its basketball legacy. Both his parents are Jayhawks, Johnson said, and his grandfather, William C. “Skinny” Johnson, played under Phog Allen at Kansas, and was later inducted into the basketball hall of fame.

The pieces would now stick together. In 2013, she was teaching at Tech Trek, a nature and science camp for girls at UCSD, and brought the second generation prototypes for the girls to play with. “I didn’t ask them to but they made a two dimensional box by taping the pieces together,” Mohanty said. “When they made that it was a turning point for me because it sent a very strong message that people wanted to make three-dimensional objects out of these things.” Mohanty hired Redpoint Engineering in Rancho Bernardo and owner K. H. Chong helped design the Geometiles and the newest version was printed on a 3D printer. She had one set made and tested it in one of the Ocean Air second grade classrooms with the kids. “The biggest feedback I received was: ‘We want more,’” Mohanty said. “The kids just loved them and the energy was amazing, electric, I knew I had something.” Mohanty made an investment with an injection molding company in Orange County to mass produce the Geometiles, which also made the pieces much more durable. It took

FROM SKYPE, A11 the temperature is. Marietta’s weather is a bit more varied than San Diego, noted Narmore. In the third grade, students used technology to supplement their learning about extreme weather by Skyping with Jeff De Quatro, director of restoration at The Nature Conservancy in Mobile, Alabama. De Quatro shared with the students about his job assessing hurricane damage in places such as Belize and the Bahamas, making not only a global connection but a career connection. “I look at the environment and say how much damage is caused and see if I can put a dollar amount on it,” De Quatro explained, showing photos of hurricane damage, repair and damage prevention methods. “It’s really hard to put a dollar amount on nature but we’re getting better at it.” The third graders can use the information shared by De Quatro as,

awhile to get the manufacturing process just right but she was able to launch her website a year ago, selling 32-piece sets, 92-piece sets and jumbo sets of 512 pieces. Geometiles can be used to teach a variety of lessons from constructing two dimensional shapes, constructing polygons, learning about angles and ratios, teaching fractions and exploring the mathematical beauty and symmetry of Platonic and Archimedean solids. “It’s problem solving and it teaches perseverance and how to handle the experience of frustration,” Mohanty said. “When something doesn’t work and it’s clear it doesn’t work, you try something else. That process is a life skill lesson that children need to learn.” For middle school students, there are building ideas such as making a gemstone or a flower and high school students can use them to learn about volume. They also create a nice challenge for curious adults looking to stay sharp with brain teasers like making a dodecahedron with four colors but no two faces can have the same colors. “There’s something for every level or just free play,” Mohanty said. In 2016, she took Geometiles to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics conference, with 10,000 attendees from all over

the country, and was very well received. The product was picked up by eNasco, an education supply catalog company, and several school districts purchased sets. She is also working on getting into the home schooling market. At the California Mathematics Council-South’s conference in Palm Springs, where she had 130 visitors to her booth, she showed off the product’s flexibility by building a cactus out of Geometiles. For a conference in San Francisco, she constructed the Golden Gate Bridge. “I’ve gotten a lot of attention and a lot of interest from all over the country. I’m really pleased with the diverse audience for this,” Mohanty said, noting customers range from an art school in Chicago, a high school in Orange County, a district with lower performing students in the Central Valley that finds the product helpful for engagement, and a kindergarten classroom in Santee where Geometiles are used to help children improve their motor skills. Teachers at one of the conferences impressed Mohanty by using Geometiles to build a hot air balloon. “It’s really fun to see what the teachers come up with,” Mohanty said. “It has a life beyond me.” Learn more at Geometiles.com

FROM CIVIC CENTER, A2 City Council and Del Mar residents, however, balked several times at proposed designs and estimated costs. “From my view, it took way too long,” said Corti, who pushed the city to pull the trigger on the project when he was on the council from 2012 to 2016. The council approved the plan in November 2015, the old building was demolished last year, and a groundbreaking was held in September. Del Mar’s new Civic Center will include a 140-space below-ground parking structure, topped by an 8,722-square-foot City Hall with administrative offices and a 150-seat council chamber that can be converted for other uses, a separate 3,172-square-foot Town Hall to seat as many as 250 people for dinners and special events, and a 15,000-square-foot outdoor public plaza. Also included are three areas for future expansion — possibilities include a restaurant or commercial business that could create income for the city, or a new location for the historic Alvarado house, which was built in 1885 and used as a residence for a century before it was moved to the Del Mar Fairgrounds for storage to make way for new construction. Still, not everyone is happy what’s coming to the 1.5-acre site. Nearby homeowner Steven Mack filed a lawsuit a year ago claiming the environmental documents for the project

failed to adequately address the increase in noise and traffic the project would bring. He asked for greater controls over the types of activities, their time of day, and lighting at the Civic Center. A court hearing is expected this summer. “It’s never really been about the buildings themselves,” said Mack’s attorney, Everett DeLano, who specializes in land use and environmental law. “My client and other neighbors are really talking about how those facilities are used.” They want limits on the number of people who can attend events at the center, how late the facilities can stay open, what types of sound equipment can be used, and more. Much of the surrounding area is an older beach neighborhood of single-family homes. City officials say the Civic Center plan was developed over the years with extensive community input, and that the design is well within the guidelines set by environmental documents. Further details of a policy to guide activities, time limits, and the noise allowed are being developed and will be presented to the City Council before the facility opens, said Assistant City Manager Kristen Crane, who oversees the construction project. “We’ve been working hard to minimize the impacts on our neighbors,” she said, and one of the first things built was a sound wall to minimize noise leaving the property. Construction remains on schedule and within budget despite 13 rain days so far this winter, Crane said.

“The end of the drought has not been our friend,” she said, although the construction schedule had anticipated as many as 18 rain days. Other difficulties so far have included some spots of “spongy” soil that had to be backfilled with aggregate and concrete, and an unexpected 90-foot-long retaining wall that had to be removed from the embankment below Camino Del Mar, she said. Workers were recently digging trenches to hold conduit and building the concrete “podium” that will cover the parking structure and support the main buildings. By mid-summer the main buildings will start going up. “This summer we’ll start seeing the shape of the buildings,” Crane said. “Dry in,” or the point where the roof is on and work can continue indoors, is expected by September, Crane said. The buildings should be ready to occupy by late spring of 2018. Until then, City Hall will continue to operate in temporary quarters leased in an office building at 2019 Jimmy Durante Boulevard. Some of the furniture from the old building was sold at a public auction in June, but most of it has been moved to the temporary location, Crane said. Del Mar had a population of about 4,300 people in 2014, making it the smallest of San Diego County’s 18 incorporated cities. – Phil Diehl is a writer for The San Diego Union-Tribune

teaching “mindfulness” to help students learn how to be self-aware of their feelings and behaviors and to regulate themselves instead of always relaying on an adult to redirect them. The school is also continuing implementation of Next Generation Science Standards — Neva Ayn Magalnick, the STREAM lab teacher on special assignment, said they are doing their own in-house robotics program, students are learning coding and are participating in the broader STEM community at events such as the Del Mar Maker Fest and March’s San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering Fair at Petco Park. At the board meeting, third grader Harrison Liew read from his piece about what a day in a life at Solana Highlands School is like for a student. He wrote that after “bursting into his classroom with a smile on his face” he took on a day that included math, English, researching ecosystems in STREAM class, practicing cursive. At break he found a friend on the playground’s Buddy Bench, a place where students sit when they don’t have someone to play with and at recess he ran six laps with the running club. At an assembly, he learned about the character trait of responsibility. “On my way home I thought about my day at school. I enjoyed the learning opportunities I had, the assembly taught me the value of character, I learned to be a good friend,” Harrison wrote. “When you put this all together you see that Solana Highlands is teaching me to be a good person. I can’t wait for tomorrow.”

Keller said. “One thing has remained the same, we have always felt like a family at Solana Highlands and I feel like it always will.” Principal Matt Frumovitz said the school received a great 30th birthday gift and that was the passing of Prop JJ in November, which will allow for a complete modernization of the campus. Frumovitz said Caroline Brown, the district’s director of capital programs, is leading the charge and helping the school prepare for construction to begin this summer. The school’s upgrade will include a new entrance lobby, removal of portable classrooms, restroom renovations and the installation of a new student garden, currently under construction. Solana Highlands is also working to ensure a “smooth transition” for welcoming 180 students from the global education program at Skyline School for the one-year that Skyline will be under construction. Global Education is an alternative educational program that includes bilingual education, multi-aged classrooms and an in-depth look at world issues such as environment, culture, human rights, government and current events. The district will provide transportation to take students from Solana Beach to Carmel Valley. “We’re getting ready for our new school, which is apropos after 30 years, but we are still doing a lot of wonderful new things this year,” said Frumovitz.

Egyptian ambassador visits tapestry display at Botanic Garden

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY BRITTANY WOOLSEY After installing an exhibit of 24 Egyptian garden-themed tapestries earlier this month, the San Diego Botanic Garden hosted a visit by Egyptian Ambassador Lamia Mekhemar on Jan. 19. The tapestries, which are on display through March 31 and came from the Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre in Egypt, were originally developed as an experiment in creativity in 1952 by leading Egyptian architect Ramses Wissa Wassef, who believed everyone possesses artistic skills but these develop only when they practice the crafts as children. Wassef then began teaching children to weave, which is a skill they brought into adulthood. The children were instructed to depict whatever they liked but copying, preliminary designs and help from adults were not allowed. The goal was to show any child can create works of art, confirming that creativity starts at youth. Since Wissa Wassef died in 1974, his widow Sophie and daughters Suzanne and Yoanna expanded the experiment, guiding more children to master weaving. Now, 30 adult wool and cotton weavers work at the Art Centre in Egypt. Eighteen wool and six cotton tapestries have been on display in the Ecke Building at the Botanic Garden, 230 Quail Gardens Drive, since the exhibit opened Jan. 14. Mekhemar, who was visiting from the Consulate General of Egypt in Los Angeles, said the displayed pieces used a dying

She considered the art expressive. “You see the evolution of the art from childhood to adulthood,” she said. “You can see the character of each of the artists.” As he was leading Mekhemar on a tour of the exhibit, Julian Duval, president and CEO of the San Diego Botanic Garden, said he believes children taking the time to learn art in the United States is rare. “I think the idea of children having so

many things available to them these days and virtual reality, it makes it difficult for a child to want to take the time to learn artistic techniques,” he said. “I think there’s something sad about that. This [weaving] can take a long time, but it’s something you produce with your hands, which is a human experience.” Some of the tapestries portray lifestyles in Egypt, with one displaying a busy city and large family, but most include plants. One piece, which is not on display in the

exhibit, includes poinsettias, which were originally grown by Ecke Ranch in Encinitas about a century ago and have become a staple flower during Christmastime. “The plants in many of the tapestries are from all over the world, and it’s very interesting that this one was done with poinsettias,” Duval said. “I think that it makes me feel good because it talks about the universality of some of these things. It doesn’t matter where you come from. The beauty of nature is something we all share in different ways.” Mekhemar said she was excited to see Egyptian art on display. “I’m glad to see it’s well appreciated because this is so spontaneous,” she said. “It comes from the environment, from the attitudes of people and how they feel inside. The art really reflects that.” Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear, who also attended the tour, said Mekhemar’s visit is a testament to the hard work performed at the San Diego Botanic Garden. “Encinitas is lucky to draw such prominent people to see the resources that we have,” she said. “The San Diego Botanic Garden is an example of a premiere garden in the region, and [Mekhemar] wanting to come down and see the things we have here is a reflection of that.” The 24 pieces on display are for sale, with proceeds divided between the garden, artist and curator Glenn Weiss, Duval said. About a half dozen have been sold since the exhibit opened. For more information, visit www.sdbgarden.org.

‘The Illusion’ set to make mystic magic at North Coast Rep BY DIANA SAENGER The drama “The Illusion,” by Tony Kushner (adapted from Pierre Corneille’s “L’illusion Comique”) will take North Coast Repertory Theatre (NCRT) audiences on an extraordinary journey. NCRT Artistic Director David Ellenstein said he first experienced Kushner’s work when he played an actor in the production years ago at the Arizona Theatre Company. “Kushner actually wrote this before he wrote ‘Angels in America,’ ” Ellenstein said. “It was one of his breakout plays that didn’t have the notoriety ‘Angels in America’ had. But it was successful and played in theaters all over during the early 1990s. Because it’s very unique (and a somewhat complicated play to do), it’s not often done, so people have somewhat forgotten about it.” The plot surrounds a father who is not doing well and so goes looking for the son he hasn’t seen in 15 years after a falling out divides them. When he can’t find his son, as a last resort he sets out to find a magician. The magician conjures up three illusions of his son. Each illusion is a little different. “In essence, the audience is seeing three different plays in one play,” Ellenstein explained. “That was a challenge to stage because if you do it full on — like we are doing — you have each illusion stylistically different with a completely different feel to it. It’s a demand on the North Coast Rep staff, and we rarely put on such a work from the technical design standpoint. It’s almost like doing four plays — one in the cave and then the three illusions. Our scenic designer,

NCRT calls the production ‘a wildly inventive tour de force, which celebrates the magic and illusory nature of theatre.’

Marty Burnett, has done it again in turning the stage into a big magician’s cave. It’s more than he thought it was going to be, but he’s always up for the challenge and really enjoys what he does.” Performing a production of this caliber required a seasoned cast which NCRT found in Andrew Ableson, Kandis Chappell, Christina L. Flynn, John Greenleaf, John Herzog, Michael Polak, Sharon Reitkerk and Paul Turbiak. “I needed actors who could handle not

only the heightened language but also had the stature and groundedness ... to go not only deep, but also handle the frivolous. I sought experienced actors who would not be scared-off by the demands of this play,” Ellenstein said. “When I was thinking about casting Kandis Chappell, I did my research and found out I was not the first to choose the magician be female. She’s great and does what we like to do in the theater — reach people’s hearts and souls and make them experience things in a more open way.”

The San Diego Follies cast performs a rendition of “I Will Survive” in last year’s show.

San Diego Follies looking for people to audition BY BRITTANY WOOLSEY The San Diego Follies are encouraging residents 55 and older to audition for their upcoming June show. Jeanie Wolf, a Carmel Valley resident who has been performing in the annual show for four years, said the show usually has about 70 to 80 performers, but last year it only had 60. “We want more this time,” Wolf, 68, said, adding that the show is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Auditions will be held March 3, 4 and 5 at Fletcher Hills Presbyterian Church in El Cajon and at the Dorothea Laub Dance Place in Liberty Station, depending on the role someone is auditioning for. Wolf, a former model and teacher who had no prior performing experience before the Follies, said the show is a lot of fun for older folks to perform in — participants range from 55 to their 90s — and a number of them have had a variety of health issues. “As long as they can walk, sing and dance, they’re having a ball,” said Wolf, a brain tumor survivor. “We’re not giving up. That’s the main thing. And we’re all meeting new people. Being at home sitting around just isn’t for us.” Robbi Campbell, a former realtor who had

never performed on stage before, joined the cast last year after seeing the show for the first time in 2015. While watching the show — adorned with professional costumes, a lavish set and a live orchestra — Campbell said she knew she had to be a part of it. “I thought, ‘I have to do this,’” the 63-year-old Carmel Valley resident said. “I was determined to try out the following year. It was the scariest thing I’ve ever done. But it was something I felt compelled to do, and I’m really glad I did.” Wolf said those who would like to participate should prepare a one-minute audition and be “energetic, loving life and have a little bit of talent.” “You can create more talent,” she said. Rehearsals are three times a week, beginning in April. The performances take place in seven shows from June 22 to June 25 at the Helix Mainstage Theater, 4200 Lowell Street, in La Mesa. Tickets, ranging between $27 and $40, go on sale March 15. For more information about the show and auditions, visit www.cytsandiego.org/programs/CCT-7.

Van Galder Design makes a home in Flower Hill BY KAREN BILLING Jennifer Van Galder of Del Mar’s Van Galder Design for Living operates her interior design business from one basic premise: A home can be beautiful but it must be comfortable and livable at the same time. Regardless of budget and scale, Van Galder specializes in designing warm and welcoming spaces that keep her clients’ lifestyles, personalities and needs in mind. The longtime interior designer with a storefront in Flower Hill Promenade recently completed a fresh, high-end yet timeless design at the 12 fractional-ownership Villas at Rancho Valencia Resort. Van Galder had been in La Jolla for 23 years with Maudlin, a boutique design firm and showroom she owned with her sister, specializing in antiques and upholstery, representing Cowtan & Tout fabrics. She branched out on her own with Van Galder Design for Living and has been in Flower Hill for three years. She moved upstairs to her current storefront last April. In the fun “bowling alley”-type space, she was able to utilize the wood floor of the former Pangea store, add light fixtures and fill the showroom with furniture topped with pillows and unconventional accents and her shelves are stocked with elegant and cozy fabrics for her custom upholstery and window treatments. Van Galder’s talents with fabric are often called upon by other local designers for upholstery projects. While interior design is where the bulk of her business comes from, Van Galder loves having a brick and mortar shop with a retail presence. “It’s really fun because you never know who’s going to pop in and what kind of conversation you’ll have,” Van Galder said. “The retail side is a real, raw way to deal with the public.” Van Galder’s look is one of worldliness, a blend of eclectic aesthetics and a lifetime of design starting in her mother’s studio when she was a girl. It’s a “collected, curated” look, a

In her line of work, she has dealt with clients of all kinds at various stages in their lives, looking to make their house a home. She has helped a homeowner start fresh after a devastating fire, helped combine the homes of 80- and

90-year-old newlyweds and designed spaces for newly-single parents. She is always mindful of who the client is — the client has obviously bought into her look and aesthetic but it’s still up to her to apply her years of experience to their needs and how they live. “At the end of the day, I walk away. What was my project becomes their home,” Van Galder said. The Rancho Valencia redesign was a huge project in a unique way. It was grand in scale with 12 homes and unique in that it was overseen by several decision-makers within the Homeowners Association as well as with the Jacobs family, who owns the resort. It was also unique in that she had three and half months to overhaul the villas, as homeowners have promised time and the full property had to be shut down in order to complete the renovations. “It was the largest project in the shortest timeline I’ve ever done,” said Van Galder. Each home was three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, with full kitchen, living room and courtyard with spa. Some units were upstairs and some downstairs and none had been updated in eight years. Van Galder had preciously designed the cabanas and bar area for Rein, the resort’s poolside bar but spent almost two years competing against other designers to earn the project, completing an extensive request for proposal and interview process. She started with one model house to get approval and then completed the other 11 last spring. She was tasked to modernize the hacienda feel of the units which she achieved by swapping the Saltillo Mexican tiles for French limestone pavers and wood flooring, and bringing in fresh, updated cabinetry, furnishings and colors — every unit had its own “funky nuances” to make them slightly different from one another.

The Kitchen Shrink’s Vegetarian Copycat Cobb Salad

Plant-based pastrami, anyone?

W

hen my Ottawan cousin recently visited San Diego for a few days of paradise and an escape from her Arctic winter peeked into my refrigerator, her jaw hung open. What happened to her carnivorous cuz, the charcuterie queen? Growing up on the East Coast, we practically sucked in cured, salted and smoked meats intravenesouly, everything from spicy pastrami, marbleized corned beef and pickled tongue to bratwursts and sausages of all manners. Instead, my clean, green fridge was now filled exclusively with organics, including plant-based meats and cheeses, probiotic pickled delights and meatless pates galore. Maybe some of these healthier vegan charcuterie (cured meats — i.e. cold cuts) offerings will convert a few fellow diehard carnivores too.

Mock meats

For those with delicate palates, tofu — also known as bean curd — has been a staple of Asian diets for centuries. These solid white blocks of compressed, coagulated soy curds come in soft, firm and extra firm textures, all having the chameleon qualities of adapting to an array of sweet or savory dishes with a fairly neutral flavor profile. Having a mother

lode of bone-boosting calcium, protein, blood-enriching iron and magnesium, tofu makes a healthy meat alternative whether blended in soups or sauces, tossed in stir-fries, salads, egg scrambles, lasagnas, or as a pan-fried patty chowed down burger style. Tempeh is an ancient Indonesian food made from fermented soybeans and shaped in a densely-packed wedge. A gustatory sponge, this vegan protein with a rich store of calcium, essential minerals and stress-busting Bs seamlessly absorbs flavors, making it an ideal add-in for stews, curries and sauces. Tempeh’s firm texture and zesty flavor lend well to meat and fowl substitutions in chopped and Cobb salads, grilled sandwiches and kebobs. For those who don’t do soy, seitan — nicknamed “wheat meat” — is comprised of gluten, the protein found in wheat and other grains that gives it a chewy heartiness. Reminiscent of luncheon meat in texture, taste and appearance, seitan does a good Reuben, pastrami or other deli fake out sandwich. Other popular knockoff meat products like Tofurkey and vegan bacon called “facon,” usually blend tofu and seitan with smoky flavors to closely imitate the real McCoy.

■ Ingredients (Serves 4): • 1 head Romaine lettuce (cut into strips) • 1 head watercress, torn into bite-size pieces • 16 ounces organic tempeh, cut in slices or wedges • 1/4 pound cooked vegan bacon, crumbled (or turkey bacon if you must) • 1 vine-ripened tomato, diced • 1 avocado, diced • 3 hard-boiled eggs, sliced • 1/2 red onion, diced • 1/4 pound cashew or other non-dairy cheese, crumbled • 1/4 cup vinaigrette dressing ■ The dressing: 1/4 cup vinegar (champagne, red wine or balsamic), 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, 2 teaspoons spicy mustard ■ Method: Blend vinegar with mustard. Whisk in oil and seasonings. Toss with the lettuces and cheese. Place the mixture on a large platter. Decorate with the remaining ingredients making mounds or strips across the greens. Finally, coconut jerky from young coconut meat produces a chewy, zippy carnivororous alternative, especially for those with gluten or soy sensitivities.

In a pickle

When assembling a vegan charcuterie board, expand your sour dill pickle horizons with other crunchy and colorfully fermented foods. Load up on a variety of toothsome probiotics like a heap of fermented cabbage. Fresh refrigerated sauerkraut trumps jarred or canned with a bigger bang of friendly flora. For an Asian riff, try spicy kimchi, a Korean

staple of the fermented crucifer, one of the highest probiotic sources on the planet; also rife with Vitamins A to amp up ocular health, stress-balancing B and antioxidant C. Or simply pick a peck of pickled peppers, green tomatoes, cauliflower florets and baby carrots to add an oomph of healthy eye candy to your table. Now, you can veg out on this recipe for a meatless Cobb salad, feeling indulged without the guilt. — For additional plant-based charcuterie recipes, e-mail kitchenshrink@san.rr.com

SPONSORED COLUMNS HEIDI BARTOLOTTA Moms Making Six Figures 858.837.1505

Mom Today, Professional Tomorrow: Getting Back into the Workforce After having kids, many moms will take only a brief maternity leave before heading back to work. But for many moms, having kids means an extended or even permanent break from work. For some, their wages don’t actually offset the cost of childcare when they’re at work. Others may want to take on a more prominent role at home until their kids go to school. And still others see it as a job shift, from career woman to stay-at-home mom. While each mom’s choice to work is one she must make with her family, it’s important to know what may lie ahead if she does decide to go back to work.

For one thing, depending on how long the mom is away from the workforce, technology may have substantially changed in the years she has stayed at home. There is also a big difference if the mom has been off for twoto-three years or eighteen. The same is true for availability. So much of the workforce is becoming automated, and the jobs that will appear in the next decade may not have been invented yet. Couple that with the competition from workers just out of college, who may have up-to-date training or are willing to work for less money, and opting back into the workforce after a break can become extremely difficult. So if you’re a mom who wants to go back to work after a break, what can you do to prepare to get back into the workforce? First, check your ego. Even if you held a high-ranking title before, many corporations will want their potential employees to have very current knowledge of the field, which an extended break can hamper. Whatever you once did will matter little. It’s almost impossible to just pick up where you left off. Also, if you were earning a high salary, you may not be able to get anywhere

near close to what you used to make. This is because there are fewer jobs since the recession, and there is greater competition. And there will be a gap in your resume (the truth is that companies generally don’t count volunteering at schools or PTA service as resume enrichers). Returning to the workforce after a break can mean you have to accept a lower salary. Also important to consider: returning to the workforce after a break to have kids also means you may have to move back down in the hierarchy before you can move back up. In the meantime, while you’re getting your resume in shape, or if you’re still in the contemplation phase of getting back into the workforce, start with some serious networking. This is especially helpful if you have an eye toward the long-game and you can build up your network over a bigger stretch of time. This doesn’t mean just selling yourself and your skills; really work on learning from other people in the field. If you have an area of expertise and can give occasional freebie advice, someone in your network may keep you in mind if a position comes up that seems right for you.

While you’re networking, spend time boosting any skills you may be lacking, or learn the new technology favored in your field. Getting any kind of recommended certification is a great addition to your resume, and it will show employers that you are committed and that it won’t be left up to the employer to get you back up to speed. Struggling to find that job after a couple of months? Consider volunteering, at a place such as a non-profit, in which you can both network and show off your skills in a professional environment. It may even open you up to a field you hadn’t been aware of previously. As far as new fields go, take chances on positions outside your comfort zone. You may want to apply for (or volunteer for) and company that’s looking for “adjacent” skills to the ones you used in your former career.

Rancho Valencia Villas designed by Jennifer Van Galder of Van Galder Design for Living. FROM DESIGN, B6 As with all of her projects, it was slightly bittersweet to hand over the keys and walk away after all the work she had put in. In her line of work, Van Galder is always working to stay on top of the trends and will soon travel to Europe to scope the latest in London and Paris from her Europe vendors. Whereas in the past years it has been all about the light fixtures, the influence of English cabinetry and hardware are a big tastemaker right now, she says.

Van Galder said she is also seeing design trend more toward the way people actually live. She said no one wants to be spoon-fed their aesthetic from one store or a catalog — no one wants to live in a showroom, they want to see their individuality shine through. “You want to see yourself in your own home,” Van Galder said. For more information, visit Van Galder Design on Facebook or call (858) 344-1965. The storefront is located at Flower Hill Promenade, 2670 Via de la Valle, suite A-225.

AUTOMOTIVE GROUP

After deciding to replace my 2 ageing BMWs with more fuel efficient vehicles with lower cost of ownership, I purchased a new vehicle from Mossy Honda, and then went to Mossy Ford to check out their plug-in hybrids. My salesman was very knowledgeable...hands down the most knowledgeable salesperson I have ever dealt with.

Throughout the process, everyone we came into contact with was awesome. They worked hard to get the terms that we felt comfortable with and explained all of the contracts and other options that were available to us.

All around, this was a 5 star car buying experience. I’d recommend Mossy to anyone looking for a new car.
