SAN DIEGUITO UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT NEWS

Parents, district ready to tackle special education with task force BY KAREN BILLING The San Dieguito Union High School District held a special education workshop on Aug. 17, providing a general overview of the state of the program as a whole and sharing goals for the future with the board and a group of highly-engaged parents. Mark Miller, the associate superintendent of administrative services, said this year San Dieguito is prepared to evaluate the special education curriculum, improve transition planning for students at all levels and to increase parent participation. The parents will be involved in the district’s recently- approved special education task force that will take a look at a variety of topics in order to craft a long-term strategic plan. The group is expected to begin meeting this fall. “I think we can all agree that the last couple months in this district have been quite a turbulent ride. Often it is with these turbulent times that produce learning on what could’ve been done differently,” Miller said.

Miller said district staff has heard numerous concerns from special education parents over the last several months and has been working “diligently” to address them. They have relocated the Adult Transition Program from portables at Earl Warren to new classrooms at La Costa Canyon High School, worked to increase support for students at the site level, and have hired of administrators with special education experience. As of July 1, the district’s administrative services department was re-organized, with the key focus of integrating general education and special education. Miller said, “All students are general education students first.” “We have also learned that much work needs to be done around communication and in creating a community of inclusion at our school sites,” Miller said. “One common theme that I’ve heard over and over is that our parent community wants to work with the SEE PROGRAM, A20

Solana Beach looks to get skate park back on track BY SEBASTIAN MONTES Having skidded into a stall that has seen costs mushroom and groundbreaking pushed back indefinitely, Solana Beach’s decade-long quest to give a proper venue to the city’s thriving skateboarding scene is poised to get its momentum going again. City officials and skaters have for years been eyeing the northwest corner of La Colonia Park — already one of Solana Beach’s primo skate spots, with its long rows of concrete steps — as home for a skate park. After the city allocated $300,000 last fall, community organizers embarked on a campaign to privately raise the rest of the expected $450,000 in hopes of breaking ground this summer. That price tag has since swelled to $820,000, city officials can’t be sure they’ll be able to break ground this year and fundraising has lagged amid the uncertainty. But the downturn of events could start to reverse course in the weeks ahead if the project wins a county grant that would close the funding gap, and if the unveiling of the skate park’s design sparks renewed excitement. Once a final design is approved and the city charts a more certain course toward groundbreaking, the funds should start pouring in, said Linda Swindell, a member of the city’s recreation committee who has helped spearhead the skate park effort. “There’s a lot of people who want to donate,” she said. “Everything we’ve done so far has been more like mini-donating and raising awareness. But the interest is there. People are willing and ready once given direction. We’ve had many business owners come forward saying they want to help out. But we need direction from the city.” The fact that Solana Beach skaters have to go to Carmel Valley or Encinitas if they want to enjoy a proper skate park is a stinging frustration for a community that has seen some of the sport’s biggest names skate its streets and sidewalks, including Tony Hawk, Wes Kremer and hometown wunderkind Tom Scharr, who shocked the skating world at the 2014 X Games as a mere 8th grader at Earl Warren Middle School.

Advocates for the proposed skate park at La Colonia Park in Solana Beach are looking to ramp up their fundraising after the early success of events such as the kickoff fundraiser last fall. “We have so many skaters here but all the kids grow up going off to other communities, with their moms taking them all over the place,” Swindell said. That had long been the state of affairs when city officials in 2007 started to put together plans for a $5.4 million overhaul of La Colonia Park, of which the skate park would

be part. The plan had been to pay for it all through a redevelopment program fed by revenues from work along Highway 101. But Gov. Jerry Brown eliminated that program in 2011, forcing city officials to take a piecemeal approach to La Colonia Park’s transformation. First came the Veterans Honor Courtyard, which opened on Memorial Day 2016 thanks in large part to a wildly successful fundraising campaign. This May, the La Colonia Community Center unveiled extensive renovations that added a computer lab in which Mira Costa College offers adult-learning classes geared toward the neighborhood’s predominantly Latino demographic — again made possible through private partnerships and donations. A surplus in last year’s city budget got the wheels rolling on the skate park effort. The city council allocated $300,000 in October, and skaters and their families responded with a wide-ranging grassroots campaign to raise the rest of the expected costs. A kickoff event that month rustled up $2,200. The Tony Hawk Foundation — whose namesake has family ties to Solana Beach — donated $5,000. The Surfing Madonna Beach Run donated $20,000. A pancake breakfast fundraiser preceded a design workshop at the end of April. Organizers set up a fund through the Coastal Communities Foundation. Local skater Jason Estudillo launched a GoFundMe page. The Solana Beach Civic and Historical Society has promised $2,000. The Solana Beach Sunset 5K race donated $1,000. Belly Up and Culture Brewery threw fundraising events during the winter. Rebecca Norman Boutique hosted a shopping and silent auction event this summer. “We’ve had an overwhelming response from the community at these events, from all ages,” Swindell said. “This is a surf-skate community and we have a lot of support for this, from the little tiniest kids to teenagers to older men, ex-skaters who tell me how excited they are to watch their grandkids skate.” Drawing up that vision has fallen to Site Design Group, the SEE SKATERS, A21

John Silverwood winches up the main sail before setting off on a solo sailing trip from San Diego to Hawaii aboard the Espiritu Santo Saturday, Aug. 19. Twelve years ago, he lost his left leg when the catamaran he was piloting ran up on a reef near Tahiti.

Local sailor who survived horrific wreck sets off on solo trek to Hawaii BY JOHN WILKENS welve years after his catamaran ran up on a reef near Tahiti — a wreck that cost him his left leg and could have killed his family — a Rancho Santa Fe real estate investor set sail from San Diego Saturday, Aug. 19, on another long-distance adventure. John Silverwood is headed to Hawaii by himself on what he’s calling a voyage of redemption. “It’s something I need to do, to prove to myself that I can,” he said. “I want to get that shipwreck off my back.” Silverwood, 65, departed from Harbor Island West Marina shortly after 11 a.m. on his 37-foot cutter, Espiritu Santo (“Holy Spirit”). A small crowd of well-wishers, including his wife, Jean, and two of their four children, was there to see him off. He expects it will take about three weeks to sail 2,300 miles to Oahu. It’s a trip filled with potential dangers — storms, other ships, equipment failures — and Silverwood said he’s taken precautions to minimize them. He installed jack lines running from bow to stern that he can attach a safety harness to as he moves around the boat. He has a “go bag” stashed next to the life raft. There are backup batteries for the backup batteries. He said it’s hard to imagine much worse befalling him than what happened in June 2005. Sailing at night in the dark at the western end of French Polynesia, the family’s 55-foot catamaran smashed into a partially submerged coral atoll called Manuae. What had been a grand, 18-month adventure — scuba diving in Aruba, horseback riding in the Galapagos, hiking in the Andes — quickly became a desperate fight for survival. The Silverwoods — John, Jean and the children, Ben, then 16; Amelia, 14; Jack, 9; and Camille, 5 — scrambled to get off the Emerald Jane as it was battered against the reef by waves. While John was up front, wrestling with the life raft, the 79-foot-tall mast fell and its spreaders sliced through his leg at the shin, nearly severing it.

John Silverwood prays with friends and family before setting off on a solo sailing trip from San Diego to Hawaii aboard the Espiritu Santo. The family spent 14 hours huddled on the reef, adjusting the tourniquets on John’s leg, trying to keep his shock and pain at bay and their own hopes up, until they were spotted by a French Navy plane. It had been summoned to the area by a signal from an emergency beacon on the boat. Silverwood spent two weeks in a Tahitian hospital. Eventually his leg was amputated above the knee. He walks now with a prosthesis. The family’s saga has been the subject of newspaper and magazine articles, television docudramas and a book John and Jean Silverwood wrote called “Black Wave,” published in 2008. Now there’s talk of a feature film. In the years since the accident, Silverwood has continued to sail, but it’s been mostly short trips around San Diego and up the California coast. Five years ago, he tried to sail to Hawaii with his son Jack in the Pacific Cup race but had to turn around after about 800 miles because of illness. He’s going this time by himself because he sees it as the only way to make a point. “I was the captain of a shipwreck that almost killed my wife, my children, and me,” he said. “If I don’t go solo, everyone thinks the handicapped guy just sat there while somebody else did all the work.” As someone who has sailed most of his life SEE VOYAGE, A23

Harmony Grove girl missing for over a month A Harmony Grove family is looking for help for their missing daughter, 15-year-old Seraphine Bustillos, who disappeared last month. Known as Sara, she was last seen on July 22 in the early morning on Fortuna Del Sur in a rural neighborhood of Harmony Grove. Sara disappeared from her home, her bedroom window screen was cut and very little was taken other than her pet baby python snake. Her parents do not

know if she left on her own or was lured by someone she met online. “We need to know that our daughter is alive and we need to get her home,” said her mother Eveline Bustillos. Sara is 5”1, approximately 110 pounds with dyed black naturally dirty blonde hair and blue eyes. Anyone who sees the girl is urged to contact the San Marcos Division of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department at (760) 510-5200.

Oxygen Isotope Forensics

Mars meteorite expert shares findings at library lecture

BY ASHLEY MACKIN-SOLOMON To shine a spotlight on local, groundbreaking science and scientists, La Jolla Riford Library presents monthly Citizen Science Lectures, and hopes to continue them the first Tuesday of each month. While future speakers have yet to be booked, library science educator Callen Hyland said the plan is to bring advanced research to “curious, scientifically minded citizens.” At the Aug. 1 lecture, UC San Diego scientist Robina Shaheen, Ph.D., (chemistry and biochemistry departments) spoke about solving the mysteries of the planet Mars with oxygen isotope forensics. At the lecture, everyone (from science enthusiasts who could identify meteorites by name and number to those admittedly trying to keep up) gathered in the community room. Among the complex issues discussed at the hour-long lecture (punctuated with questions from the audience), Shaheen talked about the potential for sustaining life on Mars, how scientists use meteorites to understand chemical reactions and the future of Mars exploration. She explained how scientists can take the oxygen isotopes (variants of a particular chemical element, in some cases, by weight) found on meteorites from Mars, measure the isotopic qualities compared to those found on Earth, and how the isotopes measure up in terms of the elements required for sustaining human life: Carbon dioxide (CO2), water (H2O) and oxygen (O). “In order for life to exist, the planet would have to be in what is known as the ‘Goldilocks Zone’ where water exists in liquid phase, vapor phase and solid phase. We know if water is in the vapor phase, it becomes clouds and it falls in rain (liquid) or snow (solid). This is how water is purified and this is the hydrological cycle. In our solar system, we’re in a small window where life can exist,” she said. “To understand the geology of Mars, and therefore

the isotopes found on Mars. “When meteorites land on Earth, we can look at their isotope makeup to confirm they are from Mars,” she said. As for the future of Martian exploration, she said it’s possible there might be life buried under Mars’ ice caps, but that solar and galactic radiation would influence DNA production on the main surface. NASA plans to investigate further, via a 2020 mission to Mars.

Mars, aka The Red Planet, pictured with a polar ice cap understand if there ever was life on Mars or whether it could sustain life, we had to look at CO2, water and oxygen because these are essential ingredients for what we know about life on Earth. CO2 warms the planet, water facilitates biochemical functions and we need oxygen to breathe.” Water exists in frozen caps on Mars’ northern and southern poles, and there are images of what may have been rivers or channels on the surface, but they are dry, she said. Using atmospheric readings from NASA rover vehicles, such as Viking 1 & 2 (which landed on Mars’ surface in 1976), Shaheen said scientists have a better understanding of

According to NASA, “The Mars 2020 Rover introduces a drill that can collect core samples of the most promising rocks and soils and set them aside in a ‘cache’ on the surface of Mars. A future mission could potentially return these samples to Earth. That would help scientists study the samples in laboratories with special room-sized equipment that would be too large to take to Mars.” Shaheen said the sample could not yet be brought to Earth because “We can’t take the risk. We have not discovered what type of microbe might be under the ice. It might be very aggressive because it is constantly exposed to radiation. It might be so resistant that we don’t have anything to handle it. So the sample would need to stay in orbit.” She added that once instruments sophisticated enough are developed and ready “we can calculate how much carbon dioxide and water are in the ice.” NASA information states, “The mission also provides opportunities to gather knowledge and demonstrate technologies that address the challenges of future human expeditions to Mars. These include testing a method for producing oxygen from the Martian atmosphere, identifying other resources (such as subsurface water), improving landing techniques, and characterizing weather, dust, and other potential environmental conditions that could affect future astronauts living and working on Mars.”

Seany Foundation to host first bereavement camp BY BRITTANY WOOLSEY A San Diego-based nonprofit that has for about a decade provided a chance at normalcy for children going through cancer is now offering support for people who have lost loved ones to the disease. The Seany Foundation, which was started by a Carmel Valley couple in 2006 after the passing of their son Sean Robins, will host its first bereavement camp Aug. 25 to Aug. 27 in Julian. However, the camp — called Ryan Strong, named after longtime camper Ryan Wilcox who died last year — is not meant to be a place where families dwell on their losses. Instead, it offers coping support and grievance counseling. “This is new territory for us,” said Robby Medina, the Seany Foundation’s Chief Operations Officer and a bone cancer survivor. “This is the first session that’s going to address the remaining family members after a kid or a parent has passed. We’re not exactly sure how it’s going to go, but it’ll probably be pretty rough.” He said 20 families, which equate to more than 100 people, will take part in the camp. He believes the campers will be going through a “wide range of the stages of grief” because some have been dealing with their feelings of loss for a while, and others recently lost their family members. Psychologists will also be available to offer support. “It will de-emphasize the idea of a therapeutic weekend,” Robby said, adding

Children attend a past Seany Foundation camp. the camp will have activities such as wall climbing and arts and crafts. “Our camps bring people together who have a similar sort of experience but we de-emphasize cancer. We offer them opportunities to talk about it but it oftentimes is just very organic and informal.” Like all of the Seany Foundation’s camps, the bereavement one will be offered free of charge for all campers and volunteers. CEO Mitchell Robins, whose son Sean is the namesake for the foundation, started the nonprofit in 2006 with his wife Amy Robins after Sean died of Ewing Sarcoma, a bone cancer.

While going through various rounds of treatments and remissions between ages 16 and 22 before ultimately passing in November 2006, Sean missed out on some quality of life, his father said. However, in his senior year of high school at Francis Parker, Sean was able to act as Daddy Warbucks in his school’s production of “Annie,” was the homecoming king, got accepted into Northwestern University and helped his baseball team win the championship game. Both Sean and his sister wished they had camps like these to go to, Mitchell said. After Sean died, Mitchell — a certified

Then, after discovering the American Cancer Society (ACS) was going to close all of its camps after 32 years of operation, he knew what he had to do. Mitchell partnered with Robby, who had led the ACS camps for 12 years, to start the Seany Foundation camps. At first, the foundation had three camps throughout the year. Now it has six, including a teen winter SEE CAMP, A23

CaseyGerry’s Frederick Schenk named ‘Lawyer of the Year’

Scripps CEO Chris Van Gorder among ‘Most Influential in Healthcare’ for 9th year Scripps Health President and CEO Chris Van Gorder has been included on Modern Healthcare’s annual ranking of the nation’s 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare, which was published in the magazine’s Aug. 21 edition. This is the ninth time that Van Gorder, a Carmel Valley resident, has made the most influential list. He was the only person from San Diego County to make the rankings. Van Gorder oversees more than 15,000 employees at five acute-care hospital campuses and 27 outpatient clinics operated by the nonprofit health system in San Diego County. More than 3,000 physicians are affiliated with the organization. Modern Healthcare is one of the nation’s largest health care trade publications.

CaseyGerry partner Frederick Schenk, a Carmel Valley resident, has been selected by his peers as a San Diego “Lawyer of the Year” for Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions in the 2018 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, a prestigious national ranking of attorneys selected through an exhaustive annual peer-review process. According to Best Lawyers (www.BestLawyers.com), “Lawyer of the Year” honorees are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during peer-review assessments conducted with thousands of leading lawyers each year. The honor reflects the highest level of respect a lawyer has earned among other attorneys based on his or her abilities, Frederick Schenk professionalism and integrity. “Only a single lawyer in each practice and designated metropolitan area is honored as a Lawyer of the Year,” said CaseyGerry’s managing partner David S. Casey, Jr. “The fact the honor is given by peers makes this accolade especially significant – we are very proud of Fred and his achievement.” A longtime CaseyGerry partner, Schenk is a member of the NFL Plaintiff’s Steering Committee which oversees the head injury litigation. He has extensive experience in products liability, personal injury, premises liability, auto and asbestos litigation, and currently serves on the boards of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) in San Diego, the American Association for Justice (AAJ) and the 22nd District Agricultural Association (San Diego County Fair board). This is the second time he has received the Lawyer of the Year award, having also received it in 2014.

Van Gorder was recognized for leading Scripps into a partnership with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to create the Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center. In his 2014 book, “The Front-Line Leader: Building a High-Performance Chris Van Gorder Organization from the Ground Up,” Van Gorder chronicled Scripps’ transformation under his leadership and his journey from police officer to CEO of a major health system.

Del Mar history

Want to bring horses back to the beach? Did you know that...

A

s Mac McBride of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club reminds us: “From its beginning in 1937 and all the way through the 1970s, Del Mar offered horsemen and their horses something that no other racetrack in North America could provide – a chance to go swimming in the blue Pacific. “A regular occurrence during those days was for trainers and their staff to walk their horses west out of the barn area, then through a pathway that went under Highway 101 and directly onto the beach. Horses, who are surprisingly good swimmers, mostly loved dipping or dashing or just standing in the cold, salty waters, bringing something fresh to their racetrack routine as well as therapeutic to their legs and bodies. “There’s little doubt that Del Mar’s founder, Bing Crosby, had to be inspired by the sight of horses in the ocean when he penned and sang his track theme song “Where the Turf Meets the Surf” in 1938. “Those sunny equine days by the

Del Mar Water Polo Club announces new head coach Del Mar Water Polo Club has announced that its founder and current head coach, Brett Ormsby, will join the men’s water polo coaching staff at Stanford University. Current club program director and assistant coach, Bojan Hrlec, will take over as head coach of the club. “The assistant coach position at Stanford University is a coaching dream come true for me, and an opportunity that I absolutely could not pass up,” said Ormsby. “I leave knowing that the club is in a great place, the strongest it has ever been, with great families, athletes, and coaches. Bojan will continue to build on the past achievements of the club, it is in trusted hands. He brings an enthusiasm and energy to his leadership that is inspiring and will ensure the ongoing success the club.” Hrlec joined the Del Mar Water Polo Club coaching staff in 2015. He assumed the position of program director and began taking over day-to-day operation of the club in 2016, while continuing his coaching duties. “I am thrilled for Brett and join the rest of the club in thanking him for building Del Mar Water Polo Club into what it is today. I have no doubt that his coaching talent and dedication to his players will be a tremendous asset to the Stanford water polo team,” said Hrlec. Ormsby has enjoyed a decorated career as both a water polo player and coach. He was a four-time All-American and 2004 National Player of the Year at UCLA. He led the Bruins in scoring each of his four seasons, and

captained UCLA’s 2004 NCAA Championship team. Ormsby went on to play for the USA National Team, and competed in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. In 2008, after coaching at UCLA and Los Angeles Water Polo Club, Ormsby relocated to San Diego and assumed the head coach position at Cathedral Catholic High School, quickly establishing Cathedral as one of the top water polo programs in San Diego. While at Cathedral, Ormsby founded the Del Mar Water Polo Club. The club has been ranked among the nation’s best 16U and 18U programs annually. Since joining the club’s coaching staff in 2015, Hrlec has worked to expand the club’s focus on development of the younger age groups, coaching both the 12U and 14U teams. His experience as a youth player provides the foundation for his coaching philosophy. Born in Rijeka, Croatia, Hrlec began his water polo career at age 6. He played for his local club WPC Opatija until age 12, when he was recruited by Water Polo Club Primorje as the top goal scorer in his age group in the country. During his time in Primorje, he played on youth teams that were consistently among the best teams in the country, and won several medals with the Croatian Junior National Team. Hrlec moved to the United States in 2010 and played at West Valley College for two years, before transferring to UC Irvine. While at West Valley College he was a member of a team that captured one state and two

conference championships. While at UC Irvine, Hrlec was a leading scorer and was ranked sixth in goals scored in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, earning All-American honorable mention honors. In 2014, he was recruited to play for the New York Athletic Club water polo team, winning several tournaments at the Masters level. As head coach of the boys 12U team in 2016, he led the team to a first place win in the gold division of the 2016 Junior Olympics national water polo tournament.

RANCHO SANTA FE COVENANT ESTATE $7,995,000

He is currently the head coach of the boys 14U team, which is ranked 15th in the nation. With the departure of Ormsby, Hrlec will move into the role of club head coach, overseeing all club activities. “The club has come a long way in the last nine years,” Hrlec observed, “the original focus of the club was at the 16U and 18U level. Fast forward to 2017, we sent teams to compete in the national Junior Olympics water polo tournament in every age group category, 10U-18U. In most cases, we had multiple teams at each level.” He continued, “My vision for the club is to maintain the success achieved by the club in the older age groups, while increasing the focus on development and training of players entering the sport.” Beginning this fall, Hrlec will take over as primary coach of the 10U team, while continuing to coach the 14U team and to oversee the club as head coach. “I am excited to work with our youngest players to develop their technical skills, and to instill in them the desire to win through teamwork and achieving their personal best,” Hrlec said. “Sports are a way to prepare kids for life. I played competitive sports from the time I was very little. It was intense, but I learned so much that was useful to me later in life: how to be a leader, how to set and achieve a goal, how to learn from mistakes, how to work hard and persevere through defeat.” The fall session for Del Mar Water Polo Club begins Aug. 28. – Submitted press release

Comic-Con’s hidden education gems

C

omic-Con is about more than costumes, movie stars and sci-fi television and film. Attendees looking for the education component at this year’s mega-convention in San Diego were treated to a variety of panels covering a range of topics. Many themes centered on how comics and graphic novels can be used to improve reading skills from kindergarten age through adulthood. Other themes explored how comic books and graphic novels can enhance learning and make core academic subjects, such as lessons in science and history, more interesting and accessible. Panels also featured experts working to prevent bullying, help geeky kids feel more confident and self-assured, and empower women and girls. In “Raising Fankids: Teaching Young Geeks to be Self-Confident and Successful,” panelists included two ninth-grade students and two teachers – all of whom proudly called themselves geeks. The children, Tatti Che and Rafe Gerson, were

poised, articulate and insightful. Gerson said the reason geeky kids often lack self-confidence is in part because their achievements have not been recognized. To validate them, schools and teachers must acknowledge them first. “Traditional schools prefer to recognize athletics over academics,” he said. Schools don’t do enough for geeks, Gerson said. “They don’t make the geeks feel cherished.” Many schools allow kids to create their own clubs, which adults on the panel said was a good trend, but Gerson said they should do more. He said adult-created clubs by teachers would attract more kids and give the clubs more status. This comment was particularly relevant. If kids create a Harry Potter Club, it’s likely to garner less interest than if a teacher organized and created the same club. When asked about fitting in with other groups, Gerson said that belonging implies you must conform. It’s better, he said, to accept yourself for who you are. And who you are, he pointed out, is not

www.delmartimes.net necessarily introverted. Saying that geeky kids prefer solitude is false. “It now means you’re tech savvy,” he said. Che said she learned to be self-confident by accepting and embracing who she is. Teacher Pasquale Piro said it is unusual for Che and Gerson to be so self-confident as geeks at such a young age, noting that it didn’t happen to him until college when he realized at last that there was no point in faking it. “I didn’t get super-popular by pretending to like baseball,” Piro said. Gunn’s Guardians James Gunn, director of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” wrote in May on his Facebook page that as a young boy he didn’t fit in and had suicidal thoughts. “I never felt like I belonged, had an incredibly difficult time connecting to other people, and, despite having love around me, I had an impossible time experiencing it, or taking it in,” he wrote. Comics and art were his passions, and that saved him. It’s a message of hope for other kids in the world who feel isolated and misunderstood. The Guardians, Gunn wrote, are “a group of heartbroken misfits whose lives have been bereft of tenderness and connection and who have a nearly impossible time trusting themselves or others. But they're learning, one step at a time.” His message to kids who feel alienated was simple: “You are not alone.” SEE EDUCATION MATTERS, A19

Prepare your child for a healthy return to school

I

t may feel like summer vacation just started, but many kids in San Diego will be heading back to school in the next few weeks. Before they do, there are several steps parents can take now to help get the year off to a healthy start. Here are a few items for your back-to-school checklist: Make sure immunizations are up to date All children under 18 years of age who enter a California school or day care for the first time, or transfer between schools, must present a written immunization record showing that they have received all required vaccines. A 2016 state law no longer permits parents to refuse mandatory immunizations for their children based on personal or religious beliefs; only children with medical conditions that put them at risk are exempt. A written exemption statement from a licensed physician is required. Requirements have changed in recent years, so check with your physician to make sure your children are up to date. Immunizations required to attend kindergarten and transitional kindergarten: • Diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (DTP) • Polio • Hepatitis B • Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) • Varicella (Chickenpox) Immunizations required for seventh grade: • Tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (Tdap) • Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) While not required, these immunizations are recommended: • One dose against meningococcal disease

To Your Health (brain or blood infection) at age 11 or 12 and a booster dose at age 16 • The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine at age 11 or 12 to protect against the HPV virus, which can cause cancer. • Yearly immunization against the flu virus “Vaccinations are important to prevent diseases in the individual and to keep the whole community safe,” said Michelle Dern, M.D., a pediatrician with Scripps Coastal Medical Center Encinitas. “Currently we’re having a large breakout of whooping cough (pertussis) throughout the state, and it’s affecting kids of all ages.” In babies, she noted, pertussis can be especially serious. “The law that requires seventh- graders to get a pertussis booster shot really helps protect younger kids and babies, because it’s the older kids who are spreading it.” For college-bound teens, most colleges require proof of select vaccines, including Hepatitis B, MMR, and meningitis. There is a new optional vaccine for the Meningitis B strain which has occurred at several colleges in the last few years; ask your doctor if your teen should have it. If you have questions or concerns about having your child immunized, talk to your pediatrician. You may also find helpful information at physician-recommended websites such as shotsforschool.org or sdiz.org, which are run by California and San Diego

County health departments, respectively. Consider a check-up If it’s been more than a year since your child’s last physical exam, it’s a good idea to schedule one now. A comprehensive check-up allows your child’s physician to ensure your child is healthy. That could be especially important if they are playing sports or involved in other physical activities. Consider giving adolescent and teenage children time alone with the doctor to discuss any questions or concerns that might be sensitive or embarrassing. Appointment schedules fill up quickly at this time of year, so it’s better to call sooner rather than later. Get back into school mode Summer break often means staying up later and sleeping in. Make it easier to transition back to a school schedule by having kids start going to bed and waking up at times that reflect their school calendar. This can be especially helpful for teens, whose natural circadian rhythms make them more prone to being night owls than early birds. “In the two weeks or so before they go back, get kids back into the habit of daily reading and limiting screen time,” said Dr. Dern. “Often parents are more lenient about those things during the summer, so it helps to get these changes implemented before the first day of school.” “To Your Health” is brought to you by the physicians and staff of Scripps.

Harper retiring at Del Mar? That’s news to him BY BRYCE MILLER Rumors bubble around the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club that long-time President and CEO Joe Harper plans to walk away after the track steps into the Breeders’ Cup spotlight this November. The chatter has grown so loud that someone recently approached Harper to say he’d signed a book that’s being circulated as a retirement gift. Harper’s response: Huh? “I have no intention of going anywhere if I stay healthy,” said Harper, 74. “If a horse doesn’t run over me, I’ll be fine. Though it wouldn’t be the first time.” Del Mar’s affable, steady steward has been at it since Li’l Abner’s comics page swan song, Pele’s run with the New York Cosmos and the soap opera debut of “Dallas.” Most assumed Harper would use the Breeders’ Cup as a take-a-bow springboard into the working world’s sunset. Most assumed he would seize the timing to side-step the challenges looming over the sport and California in particular. Most don’t know Harper. He’s as much a part of Del Mar and its turfy, surfy essence as the four-legged stars themselves. He’s a dependable presence, a calming smile from boardroom to barn. “I think people are like, ‘Joe finally got the Breeders’ Cup’ and ‘he’s been after it for 20 years,’ ” he said. “That might be part of it.” Harper said his contract runs through FROM EDUCATION MATTERS, A18 Superheroes, in real life At the “Superhero IRL: End Bullying” panel, executive producer of “The Big Bang Theory” Bill Prady described the popular television show as being about people who are different. He said pop culture can be a powerful voice, saying, “Every pop culture phenomenon was created by someone who was bullied.” The panel included author Carrie Goldman who is helping to develop curriculum to end bullying for the grades 6-8 middle school years. The curriculum – which teaches English, social science, history and science through stories kids love – uses pop culture to impart core lessons of empathy and compassion. Goldman works with actress and panel moderator Chase Masterson, who founded the Pop Culture Hero Coalition [http://www.popculturehero.org/] which strives to end bullying and empower disaffected youth to stand strong and embrace their own superhero abilities. The panel featured Star Trek star Nichelle Nichols who said she was told by Martin Luther King, Jr. that she needed to continue in her role on the original show as the famous Lt. Uhura, that she was an important role model for African-Americans and women. Also joining the panel was Andrew Aydin, policy adviser to U.S. Representative John Lewis and co-author with Lewis of Lewis’s autobiographical graphic novel trilogy “March.” “March” details Lewis’s history and his role in the 1960s civil rights movement alongside

2020, though “I’ve essentially operated on a handshake for 40 years. If any of the directors say to go away, I’ll go away. But I’m enjoying it.” The checklist for Harper included a new grandstand. Done. It included track and safety upgrades. Done. It included the Breeders’ Cup. Done. Now, he said, the focus shifts to wash, rinse, repeat. “I’d like to get us in the regular rotation for

the Breeders’ Cup, for one,” he said. No one would blame the grandson of Hollywood filmmaking royalty Cecil B. DeMille for shrinking from the fight. “I worry about attendance, but compared to others, maybe I shouldn’t,” said Harper. “We’ll be up 7,000 one day, down 7,000 another day. We’re doing well on handle, though, and have full fields. All in all, it’s good.” The problems stubbornly refuse to go away. So, Harper does too. The self-effacing estimation of his impact underscores one of the many reasons he’s so treasured. “I joke to the staff that they’re doing everything but cutting my meat for me,” he said. Harper’s seasoned and sensible enough to know that Del Mar hardly goes it alone in California. It’s a critical time, highlighted by Santa Anita’s struggles to fill fields and protect racing days just to the north. Fortunes remain linked, Harper said. “Del Mar’s great, but we’re only going to survive as long as Santa Anita survives,” he said. “We need to make sure the whole racing circuit in California is healthy. I’m concerned about the state of racing in the state. “(Del Mar) can be influential in that regard.” That influence, truth be told, is Harper. Few in the sport are better known in California — and beyond. He’s a disarming

diplomat, sharing time as easily with Kevin Costner and Bo Derek as grooms and hot-walkers. Harper endorsed Del Mar’s innovative shift toward concerts, happy hours and all shapes of off-track brainstorming. He tackled horse safety concerns by tweaking the surface and delaying the start of the current summer meet, at a potential loss of $250,000. He’s not into stagnant. That’s good, since the sport can’t afford it. So for now, Harper’s staying put. “I hate to walk away from something you love,” he said. The fact there’s still life in Harper’s batteries is good news for Del Mar and racing in general. The sport made him millions, but his family also sinks millions into funds that benefit retired horses and injured jockeys. If you think Harper simply cares about dollars, rather than the living, breathing participants who keep the sport moving, you haven’t spent time around him. Del Mar’s better with him around. Harper laughs when he thinks about that book. Did he unearth the retirement gift that’s making the rounds, a signature at a time? “No, I don’t know what it is,” Harper said. “I guess it’s like Mark Twain said, ‘The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.’ ” For Del Mar, that’s good news indeed. — Bryce Miller is a sports columnist for The San Diego Union-Tribune

Martin Luther King, Jr. Aydin told the audience to fight against discrimination in all its forms through peaceful, orderly, disciplined and nonviolent protests. Lewis was once again present for a panel at Comic-Con, where the real-life superhero and civil rights icon took a look back at the accomplishments of the “March” trilogy and how it’s inspiring new generations with peaceful ways to fight injustice. “March” is a terrific way to introduce young children to the history of the civil rights movement. Woman power Women and girls took center stage at this year’s Comic-Con. Wonder Woman and the newest Doctor Who (gasp! a woman!) were all the buzz. Panels focusing on sexism and female power struggles in the media dug deeper. At the panel titled “What Rebellions Are Built On,” female panelists discussed deeply ingrained misogyny and white male domination in comics and film. Check out the Hawkeye Initiative, where men are drawn in place of female figures in comics, to illustrate the absurdity of the hyper-sexualized female forms – and the physically impossible bodily contortions. It’s a visual eye-opener. I learned about bad-ass Jessica Jones in the panel “Feminist Marvels,” and the fabulous Flip the Script website at the panel “Women Rocking Hollywood” (where the tag line after each vignette is: “This really happened … only the genders have been switched.”). The shifting role of women in comics means, said one panelist, awareness of the ridiculousness of breasts the size of women’s heads and those unnatural female poses that

would break a normal person’s back. Science through comics The panel titled “Motivating Your Inner Mad-Kooky-Curious Scientist” discussed how to use comics and graphic novels in science education. One author spoke about her drive to write comics about aircraft and the physics of flight, and another about comic books focusing on robotics and drones. Schools teach science in the abstract, said author Mairghread Scott, but it’s “better to add the human element.” Kids hear that science is hard and that you need to be really smart to understand it, she said. “It’s complicated but understandable.” Approaches like these that present science in graphic form give kids a chance to unravel the intricacies of scientific concepts and make them more accessible. When kids see documentaries or read about famous figures in science, they figure there’s no way they can possibly achieve such greatness. But Bill Gates and Albert Einstein didn’t start from scratch, one author said. They were geniuses, yes, but Gates didn’t invent the computer, she elaborated. Every inventor or discoverer stands on the shoulders of others. R.L. Stine and “Goosebumps” A genius in his own right is “Goosebumps” author R.L. Stine, whose popular series of scary books aimed at 7- to 12-year-olds debuted 25 years ago, in 1992. To date, about 130 “Goosebumps” books have been written by the prolific author who said in his heyday he would crank out about one a month. Stine, who attended Comic-Con for the first time this year, appeared before a crowd of over 630 delighted fans, filling the room to

capacity. The hour flew by as Stine entertained the audience with humorous quips and revelations. He said many people ask him where he gets his ideas. “I don’t think of ideas. I think of titles, and the titles lead me to a story,” he said, acknowledging this is backwards to the way most authors write. As an example, walking by a cheese store once gave him the title “Say Cheese and Die,” and from that a story was born. Stine said comedy and horror are closely linked, observing that people first gasp and then laugh when someone they know sneaks up on them and scares them. Writing horror or science fiction for children, he said, is different than writing for adults. “When I write for kids, they have to know it’s not real,” he said, noting that it’s the opposite for adults who want believable fantasy. Stine attributed his success to word of mouth. “Advertising isn’t what sells,” he said. “It’s kids talking to other kids.” Several audience members told Stine how his books inspired a love of reading in their children and how the books connected their kids to other kids who were “Goosebumps” fans. Changes in education The tools used in the classroom are changing, and learning about the possibilities for the future in education was for many of us just as fascinating as wading through the crush of the amazing cast of characters on the Comic-Con exhibit floor.

FROM PROGRAM, A1 district in providing a road map for special education…The task force has the potential to be an environment where members can learn specifics about special education services, pour into data and meaningfully participate in civil discourse and ultimately draft a plan around special education.” In the workshop, Miller went over how the district’s special education program was performing through various measurements, such as graduation rates, California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) test scores, and post-secondary education and employment. The CAASPP scores are just one measure to mark student progress. Miller said more students with disabilities are taking the general test while a smaller subgroup of students with the most significant cognitive disabilities take the California alternate assessment. This is a change from the state’s old testing program where a larger population took the alternate assessment. Miller showed charts that showed the percentage of students who met or exceed standards on the CAASPP math test were at 26 percent, compared to 15 percent county-wide and 9 percent of the state. Miller said that he knows math is an area in which students with disabilities are struggling. “The way the information is presented does not provide enough details to help the board appreciate how poorly La Costa Canyon and Torrey Pines are doing, and those two schools have most of the students with disabilities,” said parent Lucile Lynch. “The lack of scrutiny by school site is one of the issues we repeatedly raised in the special education committee meetings this past year.” According to the School Accountability Report Cards, Lynch said only 8 percent of students with disabilities at La Costa Canyon Canyon met or exceed standards and at Torrey Pines, only 5 percent met or exceed standards, meaning 95 percent are not proficient. “We know we have work to do, math is a specific area that we are not scoring well,” said Miller, noting they are working to shore up the program and provide intervention measures. Miller said the district’s measurement of post-secondary education and employment is “flawed” and they need to come up with a better way to track their students’ success. San Dieguito is working to improve students’ transition to post-school life by

developing a plan based on students’ strengths, preferences and interests. One parent said that the district needs to be more thoughtful in its assessments of students and take into account their individual skills — “don’t just put them in retail.” Miller also discussed the due process complaint procedure within the district and how, as much as possible, they work to resolve differences. A due process complaint is a written document used to request a hearing related to the identification, evaluation or educational placement of a child with a disability or the provision of a free, appropriate public education to the child. The complaint can be filed by a parent or the public agency — the district is required to file when the parent refuses to consent to any part of a special education student’s IEP (Individualized Education Program). Of 1,365 students on IEP in San Dieguito, nine parents filed a due process complaint in 2016-17 and the district filed five. In 2016-17, the district spent $162,347 in legal fees and $634,102 in mediation settlements. “To me, we need to find out why parents (or IEP teams) are asking that students be moved out of the district,” Lynch said. “I know many of the families that are no longer in one of the district’s schools and they all seem to have commonalities that could possibly be addressed by this district in order to retain their presence in a district school.” Across the state, due process complaints have increased over the last several years — “Our expectations are higher,” one parent said. “Parents are fighting more because they know that their kids are capable of making improvements and progress.” In concluding the workshop, Miller said he believes that the district is in a good position to work with the community to examine issues and come up with solutions for all students. “I believe now is the time to move forward and not backward,” Miller said. “District staff has committed to improving student learning, we’ve committed to seeking parent input and we’ve committed to community engagement through this newly-formed task force. I believe that continuing pointing of fingers and continued disparaging of the special education staff is not going to be productive. We have listened.” “We want the best for our kids,” said parent Kaya Hogan. “I’m excited for this to work. Let us tell you want we need.”

Local auto detailer helps restore original Air Force One BY BRITTANY WOOLSEY n Encinitas auto detailing business owner last month had the chance to work on currently "the most elite detailing project" when he and 50 others helped restore historical aircraft, including the Original Presidential Jet Air Force One. Jose Junco, who has owned High Performance Auto Detail for nearly three years, was invited to work on the project after training in Big Bear earlier this year with master automotive and aircraft detailer Renny Doyle of Detailing Success. For the last 15 years, Doyle has selected a team to work with him on the restorations. "I obviously like to do quality work, but just the skills he showed me and the way I was performing, that's when Renny said it was a no-brainer for me to be invited to help restore the jet," said Junco, who lives in Carlsbad. From July 23 to July 30, auto detailers from all over the country convened in Seattle at the Museum of Flight to help restore Air Force One, along with 16 additional aircraft on display. These included the first “Jumbo Jet” Boeing 747 and a 1934 Boeing 247, which had never previously been polished. Doyle said the project began when a Bush Administration official asked him to "save" the famous plane, which was "falling into ruin on the tarmac at Seattle's Museum of Flight." "I had only five detailers with whom I trusted on such a project and we were horrified at the condition of the aircraft," he said in a statement.

FROM ENERGY, A4 better prices and a higher percentage of renewable energy. While various jurisdictions in SDG&E’s 4,000-square-mile service area have shown interest in Community Choice Energy — and in a few cases have decided to start feasibility studies — no other jurisdiction is nearly as far along as is Solana Beach. If the earliest projections bear out, the city’s CCE could be up and running by the end of next year. But first, the city and its consultants are wading through an exploratory phase that in the next few months will produce a technical analysis, an implementation plan and, in the blue and white tents, put city staff face to face with the residents who will need to stay on board if the CCE is to be viable. The outreach has put up stakes at the past two Thursday concerts at Fletcher Cove, and did so again on Sunday, Aug. 20 at the Cedros Avenue farmers market. Its biggest audience yet awaits on Saturday at the city’s annual beach blanket movie night at Fletcher Cove. “We can use all the help we can get,” Assistant City Manager Dan King told the city’s Climate Action Commission last week. Among the eight CCEs already operating in California, the benefits have so far borne out favorably, proving to be economically viable while achieving a higher percentage of renewable energy than the host utility company — a message that CAC member and former city councilman Steve Zahn took to NBC7 on Aug. 20. “This train has left the station, and all of the eight CCAs in the state have been profitable,” he said. “They’re producing surpluses, they’re rebating back to the cities.”

One variable that has so far resisted experts’ forecasts is customer participation. Per state law, every energy customer in the city would be automatically enrolled in Solana Beach’s CCE but would have the right to drop out at no cost and revert to SDG&E service. A large enough exodus could weaken the CCE’s purchasing power and hinder the city’s ability to strike its desired balance between lower rates and higher renewable energy. “There is definitely a line beyond which it wouldn’t make sense,” City Manager Greg Wade said at the tent on Aug. 20. “Most CCEs take a hypothetical opt-out scenario of about 20 percent. When we run our numbers, we’ll be looking at conservative estimates and asking that question. We haven’t gotten to that point yet, but what if 60 percent opted out? What if 50 percent opted out? There is going to be a point at which it wouldn’t make sense.” So far the pitch has been a passive one, with city staff fielding questions from the occasional passersby and gauging their priorities — always careful to offer rationale rather than overtly convince. “We’re taking a measured approach,” Wade said. “I wouldn’t say so much that we’re trying to convince people to stay in, we’re just giving them the information. Obviously the objective is that they won’t opt out, but it’s really their choice to do that.” While most of the conversations on Thursday and Sunday lingered for several attentive minutes, the tents were hardly a hive of activity. One of the handful who stopped by on Sunday was Sharon Rosen Leib, who has

lived in northwest Solana Beach more than 20 years. Her most pressing question: will the CCE be able to match what SDG&E pays her for the surplus energy generated by her home’s solar panels? She was heartened to hear that the city’s models suggest the CCE could offer a better rate. “Not that we care that much about the money — it incentivizes people to put in solar,” she said. More importantly, the key to incentivizing enough of Solana Beach to stay in the CCE is to skew toward a high percentage of renewable energy rather than simply aim for the lowest possible rates. “It would be great if they could balance both but I think probably higher renewable would be better if it could be for only a few dollars per month more,” she said. “I also want it to encourage more solar. A lot of our neighbors have it already and in the new construction in our area, almost everyone is putting on solar.” After Saturday’s event at Fletcher Cove, the CCE campaign will host targeted events with businesses and homeowners associations. The city will also at some point host a public workshop. The city council’s next decision point will come toward the end of this year after weighing input from the outreach alongside the implementation plan and the technical analysis. If the council decides to move forward, the next phase will see the city set its electricity rates and identify energy sources. That is expected to take six months to a year. An update to the city council is tentatively planned for its Sept. 27 meeting.

FROM SKATERS, A2 Carlsbad-based firm that designed the Encinitas and Carmel Valley skate parks, among dozens of others around the world. After months of tinkering and community input, the skate park’s final design proposal is expected by the end of this month, Swindell said, and state-mandated environmental review should be completed in six weeks. To see the sketches being worked on, go to sitedesigngroup.com/ la-colonia. But with so many elements weighing in on the skate park’s amenities, the price tag crept up to $820,000, which includes $60,000 for a basketball court to be built at a later date. All told, the project has $550,000 at the ready. To close the gap, the city decided this week to pursue a $270,000 grant from the county’s Neighborhood Reinvestment Program. The County Board of Supervisors chooses the projects that will dip into the $10 million pool, which is evenly divided among the county’s five districts. Solana Beach has won NRP grants twice before: for the Veterans Honor Courtyard, and for improvements on Highland Drive along to San Dieguito Park. City officials do not yet know when they’ll hear about the grant. Assistant City Manager Dan King is aiming to update the city council at its Sept. 27 meeting. “We hope to break ground by the end of the year, but it’s all funding-dependent,” he said.

FROM BURGLARIES, A1 male came to the door wearing a dress shirt with blue tie and a blue lanyard, according to a police report. He rang the doorbell and knocked several times before two other suspects went to the backyard to gain entry into the home. The house was ransacked and they carried out a safe. Going straight for the safe and bypassing other valuable items made Keswani speculate that the crew was scarily “professional,” as if they had done their homework and it wasn’t a snatch and grab job. Per the surveillance footage, the suspects were driving a 2017 white Honda Accord with blank Honda dealer plates. Keswani wanted to raise awareness in the community as he is afraid a suspect could enter a home and mistakenly encounter a teenager. In his case, two of his children had just left the home prior to the break-in. Keswani shared the incident on Nextdoor.com and neighbors said that there were several other homes in the area that had been burglarized recently. One neighbor noted that a car had been spotted casing the block, driving up and down the street at least 20 times. Keswani said on at least a couple of other occasions police have asked for surveillance footage from his security cameras. Officer Trevor Philips, community relations officer for San Diego Police Department’s Northwestern Division, said he could not give any specifics on the case due to the continued investigation. Earlier in the month, there was another

daytime break-in caught on home security cameras in Carmel Valley, this one on Aug. 1 on the 12900 block of Harwick Lane, according to a police report. At around 1:15 p.m., residents left their home to run errands and at 1:50 p.m. a silver Kia Soul parked in front of the home. A female driver walked up to the front door and knocked for about three minutes before returning to the vehicle. Second and third male suspects then exited the vehicle and entered the house while the driver drove away. The suspects went through a side gate and broke a bathroom window to enter the home. They ransacked the home for about 30 minutes before tripping an upstairs motion detector and fleeing. The car was waiting for them and they sped away southbound on Ashley Falls Drive. Both male suspects were wearing hoodies with the hoods pulled over their heads, while the female, who had long, black hair to her waist, was wearing a light-colored blouse, black pants and heels with an oversized purse on her shoulder. “We have security cameras, we have house alarms, we have neighbors and yet, despite all the precautions, we had no luck,” Keswani said. “We need a really strong Carmel Valley response, to say this is not something you will get away with in our community.” The police are looking for information on both cases. For the Greenwillow case, anyone with information is asked to call Detective Jenna Willkomm at (858) 523-7047. For the Harwick Lane incident, please forward information to Officer L. Cairncross at (858) 523-7041 or lcairncross@pd.sandiego.gov.

FROM RESTORATION, A20 deterioration over the years." The museum has contracted with Doyle's team through 2020, he added. "There is no room for mistakes on multimillion-dollar aircraft, and that's why I brought on Jose with his exceptional skill and eye for detail," he said. When Junco started in the detailing business a decade ago, he said he never imagined he would work on such a noteworthy project. Junco said working on Air Force One was "intense work," and he felt honored to work on all the planes. "For me, it's been the best experience so far as a detailer," he said. "I was very proud and honored to be a part of that team and help serve history."

FROM LIFEGUARD, A1 to the investigation. The city put Vergne on paid leave on April 5 “following attempts to interfere and undermine the City’s ability to undertake a fair and impartial investigation,” according to the city’s press release, and brought in an outside investigator who interviewed 20 employees and reviewed thousands of pages of records.

Everlasting memories of loved ones

Eric Lee Dodson

April 30, 1964 - August 4, 2017 SolAnA BeAch — eric lee Dodson was born in Washington, D.c. at Providence hospital to his parents lee and Marion Dodson after they returned to the U.S. from lee’s military service in Germany. eric spent most of his early years in Solana Beach. he lived with his two daughters, Amanda and Melody, in encinitas until his recent passing. eric was always his own person, a caring son, compassionate father, wonderful brother and good friend. Growing up he loved playing football while attending Santa Fe christian School (class of 1983) and proudly played in the All-Star Game his senior year. After earning an AA degree at Southern california college, he began his career in sound production/engineering at local events, churches, clubs, etc. eventually,

eric formed his own business working with big name performing music groups at special event entertainment venues all across the country. locally, his sound talent could be heard on Sundays at Redeemer church in encinitas for their services, summers at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar for their concerts, plus weddings, corporate events, galas, even comic con shows last month.

To his daughters, Melody (14) and Amanda (18), he was the very best Dad. eric was a consummate father taking them to school events and school every morning. he even took them to venues/gigs he was working and shared wonderful times showing them what he did as an audio/sound engineer. Although not a musician himself, he had an ear for quality sound… he really loved music and enjoyed making everyone else sound great. eric is predeceased by his father, lee. he is survived by his mother, Marion; two daughters, Amanda and Melody; sisters, Katrina Dodson and Jolene Bogard, her husband Brand, daughter Brynn; and many extended family members. We all miss him very much as do his relatives, friends and the many music professionals eric

worked with over the years… he enjoyed his work and he was the best at what he did. he’s probably still doing sound checks for choirs somewhere up above. To honor eric and his lifelong career in entertainment sound, the family has established the eric lee Dodson Memorial Fund at coastal community Foundation. The proceeds will help support the north coast Repertory Theatre capital campaign for the building of its new theater venue. The coastal community Foundation is located at 162 S.

He said the experience was vastly different than working on a car because of the size and time it took. "Just being up so high, it's different," he said. "Everything is different. The hours that you have to put into just a single wing on a plane. You're there all day. It's intense work. It's not easy but it's a lot of fun." Junco said he looks forward to continuing his work on the aircraft for years to come. "Everybody was just so pumped up and proud to be working on this project," he said. "You're just filled with all these pockets of energy. It was just a good day every day." Junco said he is proud to have earned five-star ratings on Yelp and many repeat customers at High Performance Auto Detail, 790 S Coast Hwy 101 #101, over the years. Anyone wishing to schedule a service can call him at 760-994-3462.

investigation, administrative assistant Liza Rogers, will also be fired pending a process through the city employees’ union, according to the city’s press release. The investigator’s 1,700-page report allegedly found 95 instances between 2015 and 2017 in which Vergne and Rogers inappropriately gave waivers and discounts for use of the Powerhouse Community Center and other city facilities to friends, personal acquaintances, non-residents and former city employees totaling $151,575, according to the city’s press release. In one instance, Vergne and Rogers allegedly allowed a part-time city employee to be paid simultaneously as an independent contractor to the tune of $23,000 and failed to supervise his use of a city credit card to make a personal purchase of more than $4,500. The part-time employee, who has not been named, is also being terminated, according to the city’s press release. The actions violated several city and state codes, and that evidence has been turned over to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, said Mayor Terry Sinnott. “By waiving and discounting permit fees, these employees essentially gave away City funds to friends, personal acquaintances, and others which were a total violation of the City’s established policies and procedures,” Sinnott said in the city’s press release. “This has been a difficult process because of the outside pressures and media attention generated by some. There was no rush to judgment. The City didn’t waver in its mission to conduct a fair, independent and confidential investigation to arrive at the facts, while protecting the

rights of the individuals. Based on the findings, we will be putting additional procedures in place within the Community Services Department and look forward to even better results with improved operations and a dedicated adherence to City standards at all levels. Additionally, the Council wants the community to know that we stand behind the findings in the investigation involving the City Manager and have confidence in his ability to review the results of the primary investigation and do what is needed to correct the issues we now know exist.” The City Council unanimously agreed with the findings at a closed session on Aug. 22. As a result of the investigation, the city will review and overhaul its internal procedures, the press release stated. As the investigation dragged into July, Vergne filed a counter-complaint against City Manager Scott Huth for harassment and retaliatory behavior. A separate investigation has dismissed those claims as groundless, according to the press release. Vergne and his attorney met with Huth and City Attorney Leslie Devaney on Wednesday, Aug. 23, where Vergne was fired and the allegations laid out in a letter. “They’re outrageous,” said Dan Crabtree, Vergne’s attorney. “To be blamed for the things that are in that letter, there basically isn’t a shred of truth in it. It’s mindboggling when the city has known about all of these transactions for years, it has been done in complete transparency the whole time. We’ll be taking action accordingly. This is an outrageous situation and the residents of Del Mar are going to be beyond livid.”

FROM VOYAGE, A3 — “It’s in my blood,” he said — he’s looking forward to the peace and tranquility he finds in long days and nights on the water. And to the challenge. “When you strip away all the distractions of modern life,” he said, “it’s just you and the boat and the wind, and it’s your responsibility to make it work.” If he’s successful, he’d like to be an inspiration to other amputees. “Maybe they’ll say, ‘If that 65-year-old guy can do it, I need to get up and do something myself,’” he said. He’s also hoping to raise money through the trip for GodSwell Sailing, a Christian-oriented nonprofit organization he started that takes people with disabilities and life-threatening illnesses out at sea as a form of therapy. The funds would be used to buy a larger boat, a catamaran. As he and friends from his Bible-study group readied the boat Saturday morning, Silverwood said he knows bad things could happen again. “It’s a boat,

right? Murphy’s Law. Murphy was probably a sailor.” Mechanical problems had already pushed his departure back two days. But he said he was ready, and he seemed eager to go. His wife said he has her blessing. “It’s something he needs to do,” she said. “I’m OK with it.” She climbed on board for last-minute photos and hugs with him. So did son Jack and daughter Camille. “He’s finally going to get it out of his system,” Jack said. The Rev. Willie Briscoe led a farewell prayer. Then the lines were untied and Silverwood was off. The plan was for him to sail up the coast to Oceanside and pull into the harbor there for a final check of everything on the boat. Then on to Hawaii. “A shipwreck like the one we had leaves a mark on everyone,” Silverwood said. “Why it is that I still love to sail, I don’t know. But I do.” — John Wilkens is a writer for The San Diego Union-Tribune

FROM CAMP, A7 weekend, day camp, resident oncology camp, sibling camp, family camp and the bereavement camp. Camps are focused on families dealing with cancer. Most programs are focused on children, including those with the disease and their siblings who often can get lost in the chaos of hospital visits and treatments. Close to 50 percent of the volunteers are also cancer survivors, Mitchell said. Robby, who was a camper at the ACS camps from age 14 when he was diagnosed and a volunteer once he reached 18, said offering these “quality of life” programs for the kids is important. “It’s not uncommon for these kids to lose their entire childhood when they’re diagnosed,” he said. “It’s a natural reaction for friends at school to abandon you, and life just changes immediately. Camp is there to replace that and build a new sense of normalcy for these kids.” Fostering a relationship with other campers in similar situations creates a strong support group and bond, said Robby, who

met his wife and many of his friends while volunteering at the ACS camps. “These kids understand that this is something they’ll be dealing with for a while,” he said. “Building that community that they met at camp is huge. Only we can provide that by building this camp setting and helping them understand that it’s not a death sentence or something they can’t handle. We build a sense of resiliency that they can get through it with these people.” Mitchell added the camps are somewhere anxious parents can feel comfortable dropping off their children. “The biggest pushback we get is the parents who don’t want to let go of the kids,” he said. “When they go and realize the camaraderie and the friendships they make, they become more comfortable.” Each year — through events like a 5K, movie nights, gala and golf tournament — the Seany Foundation raises close to $1 million to support its mission and continue to offer its programs free of charge.

Almost a decade after ‘Idol,’ David Cook still on victory lap BY ROB LEDONNE t was 10 years ago next summer when a virtually unknown singer-songwriter living in Tulsa, Okla., auditioned on a lark for a certain reality music television show. Little did he know that try-out for “American Idol” would lead David Cook to later be crowned champion, an achievement that has continued to reverberate throughout the rest of his life. “I don’t feel like it’s been 10 years, but sometimes it looks it,” says Cook with a laugh, thinking back on the experience that shot him to nationwide fame. “My outlook on Idol has been pretty consistent. It was an opportunity and platform and I’m internally thankful that I was in a position to take advantage of that. In that context it’s been nothing but a blessing.” However, Cook also points out: “There’s always going to be, as a byproduct of what it is, people who write you off because of it and that’s a bummer. But the people who do that are denying themselves to find something that might mean something to them.” The career that Cook kicked off on what was then the single highest-rated television show in the United States (Cook reigned supreme over runner-up David Archuleta) garnered him a nationwide audience and subsequent fanbase. It’s that cross-country string of fans that Cook is tapping into for his latest tour, slated to roll into Solana Beach’s Belly Up Tavern on Aug. 31; a gig Cook says he’s looking forward to, considering the last time he was in San Diego was under different circumstances.

I

I believe in keeping your head down and doing your work for as well as you can, as hard as you can, for as long as you can.

— David Cook

David Cook will perform at the Belly Up Aug. 31. “A couple years ago I repelled down a building in San Diego in an event called Over the Edge,” says the singer. “It was for a charity I’m involved with called ABC2 to accelerate finding a cure for brain cancer.” For Cook, the charity hits close to home. In the years following his win on “American

BOBBY QUILLARD

Idol,” the singer was just as focused on his career in music as he was on his ailing brother Adam, who passed away from the disease in 2009. The loss left a lasting impact on Cook, perhaps giving him added perspective and additional perseverance to stay afloat himself in a fickle industry.

That navigation of his career has all led up to the release of his latest single dubbed “Gimme Heartbreak,” which was released in June and marks a departure. “Starting actually with ‘Gimme Heartbreak,’ I tried to write a little differently where I wanted it to go more in a software, synthesizer direction,” said Cook, who’s known for front guitar-driven rock tracks. “My inspiration was bands like Nine Inch Nails and Massive Attack, but to try to bring a more cinematic pop element and combine that with other influences from artists like Halsey and Aurora. I wanted to take all of those inspirations and wrap them around what I normally do. It was different for me because I didn’t want to focus so much on narrative and wanted to find as much imagery as possible.” When it comes to Cook’s stage show, fans should expect a wide range of tracks, from newer songs such as “Gimme Heartbreak,” to “Idol”-era favorites like “Light On,” his 2008 debut single from his self-titled debut album co-written by the late Chris Cornell. It later reached number 4 on Billboard’s Top 40. What’s Cook’s secret to remaining a viable artist 10 years after winning the show that would change his life? He says it simply: “I believe in keeping your head down and doing your work for as well as you can, as hard as you can, for as long as you can.” David Cook rolls into Solana Beach’s Belly Up on Thursday Aug. 31. Doors open at 7 p.m., the show starts at 8 p.m. Visit bellyup.com.

Massage Concepts offers tranquility for a reasonable price

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY KAREN BILLING When Anne Chao opened Massage Concepts last year in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center, she knew exactly what the magic touch would be: No memberships, no pressure to purchase packages, just high-quality relaxation. Since opening, Massage Concepts was named Best Massage in this newspaper’s 2016 Best of North Coast Readers Poll and business has grown steadily — last month they had over 1,000 visitors. “What makes us special is that we not only provide mainstream massage services but we incorporate Asian styles. We also provide high-quality massage at a good price with excellent customer service. We work hard to make sure the customer wants to come back,” said Chao, noting she is against memberships or aggressive sales of treatment packages. “Customer loyalty comes from customer satisfaction.” In addition to the traditional Swedish and deep tissue massages, Massage Concepts’ menu includes the Asian styles of shiatsu therapy and reflexology. Shiatsu, which originated in Japan with influence from Chinese medicine, is a form of holistic body therapy by applying “finger pressure.” The

therapist uses touch, comfortable pressure and manipulative techniques to alleviate the body’s stress and balance its energy flow. The ancient art of reflexology is based on the belief that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face and ears correspond with different areas of the body. Chao said that by applying pressure to these points, the treatment stimulates blood flow and relieves tension throughout the body. Owning the massage studio is a brand new experience for Chao as she used to work for Qualcomm in the licensing department, working a demanding schedule that involved a lot of travel. She was looking for something different to do and when the space opened up in Del Mar Highlands Town Center, just minutes from her Del Mar home, she thought she would give the massage business a try. “I always loved getting massages but I had a hard time getting what I wanted,” Chao said. At other chain massage places, she didn’t like the pressure to purchase memberships and packages that she couldn’t always use due to her travel schedule and she had a hard time making appointments when both

KAREN BILLING

Massage Concepts owner Anne Chao she and a therapist were available. “I couldn’t get an appointment when I felt I needed it the most,” she said. As a remedy to that problem, Massage Concepts’ therapists work full time, “I wanted people to be able to walk in on the spot and have a therapist available,” said Chao, noting that even on Saturdays and Sundays clients can book a treatment for the same day with a one-or-two-hour lead time. As they continue to grow, Chao said she knows that will be the challenge to be able to keep that promise. Massage Concepts has 10 peaceful and quiet treatment rooms, including a couples massage room, a room especially for prenatal massage and one combo room that has a reclining, relaxing chair for foot massage along with a massage bed. The room has been popular for families as Massage

Concepts allows children to come in while adults are having a massage to sit quietly in the chair alongside the bed. Chao said the chair in the combo room has also been used by local High Bluff employees who come to work in the chair while getting a massage. The largest treatment room is a foot reflexology room with four chairs, allowing it to host small group parties. The foot reflexology treatment begins with a foot soak in an herbal bath while the upper body is massaged. The therapist then works the legs and feet for a total 45-minute treatment. “It’s a good relaxing experience,” Chao said. A lot of people ask if they serve champagne or have a Jacuzzi tub but Chao said they are not a day spa and are not trying to be one, “We want to make it as affordable as possible to the public,” Chao said. For summer, specials include a 60-minute foot reflexology massage for $39 and a 60-minute Swedish massage for $49. “We are family-owned, not a big chain,” said Chao, a working mom who is proud to be a woman business owner. “Our goal is to become a part of the community and provide a service to local residents.” Chao has made it as easy as possible to make an appointment online at massageconceptsdelmar.com. For more information, call (858) 847-2277. Massage Concepts is located on the second floor, near Sammy’s at Del Mar Highlands Town Center, 12925 El Camino Real, suite J25, in Carmel Valley. Massage Concepts is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., open late for those with busy schedules. — Business spotlights are developed through this newspaper’s advertising department in support of our advertisers.

An Adventure in Listening

UCSD’s Stuart Collection adds a musical piece BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT t’s alive! “The Wind Garden,” the latest addition to UC San Diego’s Stuart Collection, is different from the 18 other site-specific artworks that enliven the 1,200-acre campus. Created by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams, it is not a fixed entity, but an ever-changing soundscape performed — with the help of sophisticated software — by a chorus of wired eucalyptus trees. Due to variable winds, times of day and weather conditions, what you hear when you stroll through the grove outside the Mandell Weiss Theatre is different every time. At the official opening Aug. 7, Adams and his team of sound, data, and system designers were happy to talk with visitors about the piece. “It’s a musical composition in the form of a garden, played not by instrumentalists, but by the wind,” said Adams, who has been working on the piece — his first outdoor installation — for years. “Each tree is a cluster of sounds,” explained sound designer/programmer Jem Altieri. “As the day goes on, the tonality shifts from major to minor.

■ The 19-piece Stuart Collection (wholly funded by individual donors and foundations) began in 1981 with a $1.5 million gift from an art-loving Rancho Santa Fe businessman, James Stuart DeSilva. Thanks to Mary Looker, a longtime Friend of the Stuart Collection, it now has a million-dollar endowment for public art on UCSD campus. ■ According to Mary Beebe, director of the Stuart Collection since its beginnings, “This is not about decorating the campus, it’s about providing experiences for people to think about.” Decisions are made by an advisory board of art professionals, and, finally, the university chancellor, but it’s Beebe who finds the artists, helps with their proposals, runs them by the board, and does the all-important fundraising.

Meet local bookseller Nancy Warwick you’re in retail, you have to have sense of humor, because strange and weird things happen all the time.

Q&A

BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN o describe Nancy Warwick in one word, that word would be “determined.” Other adjectives that suit the owner of La Jolla’s oldest bookstore — Warwick’s at 7812 Girard Ave. — are “strong,” “opinionated” and “sweet.” She’s the force behind trying to keep an independent book retail store in the era of technology afloat, and she will persist in the challenge. She speaks dearly of her staff, some of whom have worked for her for more than 20 years.

T

Where are you from?

When did you take over the bookstore?

Nancy Warwick

I was born in Austin, Texas because my dad was going to grad school there.

going to retire, and they asked him if he would be interested in taking over the store.

What’s the history behind Warwick’s Bookstore?

When did you move to La Jolla?

This is a family business, and we’re the oldest continuing family operated bookstore in the United States. My great-grandfather started the store in 1896. He first opened in Minnesota, but he was actually born in Iowa, so after 20 years in Minnesota he moved to Iowa. Twenty years later, his wife passed away, and his sister was living in La Jolla, so in the 1930s, he moved the store to La Jolla. At that point he was quite elderly. Both my parents were born and raised in the Bay Area. My father was pursuing graduate studies in biology when his parents decided they were

My father moved to La Jolla in 1964, when I was age 2. We rented a house in University City for two years, and then they found the house in Muirlands, where my mother still lives. My father passed away 10 years ago.

How was growing up in La Jolla?

Great! I went to La Jolla Elementary, Muirlands and La Jolla High, and the store was such a powerful force in our family life. My parents shared an office and worked together throughout their lives. I know sometimes my dad might get tired of talking about the store, but it was fun to talk about the funny things that happened, and if

My parents never put any pressure on us to take over the store. My dad always thought I would become a school teacher, and my sister became a school teacher. And the other thing they did is, even though they didn’t pressure us, they made the store feel like it was our store, too, from a young age. They really valued getting our opinions on how to handle situations, products that came in, and they included us in all the stories all the time. So the store became part of my identity. When the opportunity came up for me to take over the store (my parents unexpectedly announced they were going to retire when my dad was 65 in 1997), I was in my final year, finishing my dissertation for a Ph.D. in anthropology at UCLA. My husband was working, and we had just had Zachary, our son, and so I had a newborn, and I was working on my dissertation. I wasn’t expecting it to come up. I wasn’t prepared to make that decision and knew that I had to. It was a major life change. But we did it and it’s been a really good move for us, because I just love the store. I actually never had a business course, but I’ve always had a very good instinct for the store and have great employees.

What were some funny stories that happened in the shop?

We used to have a customer come in with a Standard Poodle, and the Standard Poodle would be off-leash wandering around, and if he wanted to find his owner, he would get up on his hind legs, start walking around like a circus dog, trying to look over the counters. My grandmother was a force. She worked until she was 98 years old. I had the pleasure of working with my grandfather, he died in the 1970s, but I had a few years where I could work with him because we all used to come in on Sundays when the store was closed and catch up on things. Basically, my sister and I would just play in the store. But my grandparents and parents were here, and we would sneak out books that we really shouldn’t have been reading at that age.

What changes have you implemented?

We had Hallmark cards for over 40 years. The first big change I made when I took over was to sell other card lines. I’d become aware, living in LA, that there were many other card companies out there. So I made the change and it was very successful. I really appreciated that even though my parents felt very strongly about not dropping Hallmark, they supported me. SEE NANCY WARWICK, B22

David Toler, vice chair of the Kumeyaay Diegueno Land Conservancy, to speak at DMF Talks event KELLEY CARLSON Collected crossed the finish line first, a half-length in front of his stablemate, the fast-closing Arrogate at the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic Aug. 19.

Collected defeats Arrogate to win $1 million TVG Pacific Classic BY KELLEY CARLSON Trainer Bob Baffert won the Grade I, $1 million TVG Pacific Classic on Saturday, Aug. 19, but not with the horse that many people expected. It was Collected who crossed the finish line first, a half-length in front of his stablemate, the fast-closing Arrogate. Accelerate — who conquered Arrogate earlier in the meet — was 3 3/4 lengths farther back in third. Collected completed the 1 1/4-mile race on the dirt in 2:00.70 under jockey Martin Garcia. “Arrogate, at least he tried today,” Baffert said of his champion horse. “He’s getting there, but I think that when I ran him in the San Diego (Handicap on July 22, when he finished fourth), it messed up his psyche a little bit. I don’t think I have a problem

bringing him back in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. But he’s got to be fresh, just like Collected came in here fresh. And Collected is a very good horse.” The 4-year-old Collected is owned by Speedwell Stable, the nom de course of the Houston-based partnership of Peter and Ann Flour and Kane C. Weiner. Also Saturday, Dream Dancing nosed out Beau Recall to clinch the Grade I, $300,000 Del Mar Oaks, and Hunt continued to show his affinity for the seaside oval’s turf course with a victory in the Grade II, $250,000 Del Mar Handicap. The rest of the stakes winners for the week were Blackjackcat (Grade II, $200,000 Del Mar Mile), Tribalist ($105,070 Green Flash Handicap) and Responsibleforlove ($80,980 CTT & TOC Handicap).

The Del Mar Foundation presents DMF Talks with David Toler, vice chair of the Kumeyaay Diegueno Land Conservancy and a board member of the Inter-Tribal Court of Southern California and a member of the San Pasqual Tribal Council, speaking on “Past and Present: the Original Inhabitants of San Diego County.” Who are the Native Americans who lived on the land before us? David Toler will speak about the journey of one of the first peoples, his ancestors, who lived in this area through the story of one Ipai (aka Kumeyaay) family. The event is free and will be held at the Powerhouse Community Center in Del Mar on Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 6 p.m. Online reservations are required and may be made at delmarfoundation.org/events. Seating is limited. DMF Talks, the Del Mar Foundation’s unique version of TED Talks, draws its speakers from locally-based creative, intellectual and scientific leaders. Launched in 2012, DMF Talks aims to entertain, inspire, and educate the Del Mar community through a series of free presentations. The Del Mar Foundation sponsors programs, makes grants, and manages over $2 million in endowment funds to benefit the greater Del Mar community.

Muses of The Old Globe opens to the public Sept. 1 and runs until Oct. 29 at the Women’s Museum in Liberty Station. There have been many female players in the history of the Old Globe since its beginning at the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition, including directors, actors, playwrights, craftspeople, and business leaders. This exhibit will highlight just some of the women who have performed their roles and left their mark at the Globe. Themes of Shakespeare, strong community involvement, and artistic adaptation are unifying threads and from its beginnings, women have played a strong role in the Globe’s story. This exhibit is curated by Darlene Davies, historian of the Old Globe Theater. Davies has been involved with The Old Globe since 1951, acting, writing, archiving, and speaking about the treasured theatre since that time. She has published many articles about San Diego, particularly about Balboa Park and The Old Globe. Having served on the City Advisory Board on Women and on the County Commission on the Status of Women, as well as the Globe Board of Directors, Davies has now combined two areas of interest, connecting stories of women and The Old Globe for this exhibition Visit www.womensmuseumca.org

A Yogurt Primer: Become a Culture-Vulture

F

lipping through an old cookbook my mom used religiously during our childhood, I landed on a dog-eared, batter-stained page that revealed our family’s favorite recipe for carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. One of the cake ingredients was a half-cup of yogurt. In those days, there were only a couple of varieties — plain or fruit blended, so it was a no-brainer about what type to use in that recipe. Today, the yogurt aisle is a dizzying wonderland of fermented milk from bovines, ovines and caprines, along with non-dairy substitutes with various fat contents, textures, flavors, sweeteners, and gut-friendly live cultures to dial up digestion along with the immune system. Here’s a line-up of yogurts to give you the most out of this probiotic delight. That’s Greek to Me: The Greek yogurt craze has swept throughout the country capturing one-third of the yogurt market, tallying nearly $2 billion in annual sales. After traditional fermentation methods the yogurt is then strained through a filter, usually made of muslin to remove the liquid whey, leaving a super thick, silky smooth texture with a distinct tartness, much like sour cream with benefits. This

denser yogurt boasts more protein than its conventional counterpart, less sugar, along with fewer carbs and lactose making it gentler on the gut for digestion. Greek’s also a probiotic powerhouse packed with immune boosting live active cultures (L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus, Bifidus). The yogurt’s decadent consistency makes it an ideal substitute for fatty mayonnaise, heavy and sour creams, custards and ice creams. Scoop a dollop on a steamy baked spud, blend in a yam soufflé or a redskin potato salad. Whip up spinach, crab or artichoke dips, and tzatziki sauce. Grill wild caught salmon with a sprinkling of fennel seeds, and slather of Greek yogurt. Drizzle tarragon yogurt sauce over grilled chicken or veggie kebobs. Do a riff on fettuccine alfredo and creamed soups. Blend in smoothies, milkshakes, and batters of all kinds for a moist, scrumptious texture. Nothing to Balk About: Balkan- or set-style yogurt is typically prepared with raw whole milk in small, individual-size batches, and like Greek yogurt is strained, giving it a thick velvety texture with a good protein and probioitc load. Alas, Balkan also has a high fat content, so use portion control. Getting Stirred Up: Swiss-style also

called stirred yogurt ferments in a large vat, and is then stirred and often blended with fruit. This yogurt, while creamy, is thinner in texture, and almost drinkable. Say Cheese: Labneh, a Middle Eastern spread that resembles sour cream in texture is a type of yogurt cheese traditionally served on pita bread with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkling of fresh mint leaves. I’ll Drink to That: Of Eastern European origins, Kefir, a fermented dairy beverage is slightly sour and refreshing, packed with billions of colony-forming units. Drink it straight up for a quick antioxidant oomph. Get your Goat: For those that don’t do moo milk look for yogurt made from the milk of goats, sheep, yaks and camels. Since goat milk closely resembles the composition of human milk fewer allergies are triggered, while the smaller fat globules, lower levels of lactose (sugar in milk) and Alpha-S1 casein (protein in milk) make it more easily digestible. Rich and gamy sheep’s yogurt has a load of milk solids and lactose (even more than cow’s milk) that might be difficult to digest. So steer clear of this one if you have gut issues. Copycat Cultures: For vegans and those with dietary restrictions, allergies and lactose intolerance non-dairy yogurt options include those made from almond, soy, and coconut milks. These contain the same probiotic digestive benefits as their dairy counterparts with a lighter consistency. Almond is rich in magnesium and Vitamin E, coconut has a good amount of anti-fungal lauric acid to calm intestinal candida, while soy is high in protein and calcium, but choose organic to avoid GMOs.

White Gazpacho ■ Ingredients: 1 cup plain Skyr or Greek yogurt; 1/2 cup ice water; 3 tablespoons virgin olive oil; 1 tablespoon lemon juice; 1 handful fresh cilantro; 1 garlic clove; 2 Persian cucumbers; 3 Roma tomatoes; 1 sweet red pepper; 1/2 small red onion ■ Method: In blender, puree ingredients and chill. Serve with grilled flatbread. — kitchenshrink@san.rr.com

RSF resident’s CaddyHack 4x4 golf event raises funds for Boys to Men Mentoring

R

ancho Santa Fe resident Ernie Hahn celebrated his 50th birthday by hosting a charity golf tournament at Morgan Run Club & Resort on Aug. 7 benefiting Boys to Men Mentoring. The event raised $113,000, which also held both a live and silent auction. More than 100 golfers competed in the first annual CaddyHack 4x4 Golf Tournament. Hahn, general manager of Valley View Casino Center, designed the event around friends, music, food, drinks and a giant, 23-foot inflatable gopher, which was used as an obstacle. “I wanted to celebrate my 50th year in a meaningful way,” Hahn remarked. Held in a unique scramble format, two players from opposing teams hit simultaneously off the tee box. Retro golf attire was also encouraged. Attendees, including Trevor Hoffman, Mark Loretta, and Rolf Bernirschke, participated in the tournament to help raise money for Boys to Men allowing the organization to expand its group mentoring to more schools across San Diego County. Founded in 1996, Boys to Men is a school-based mentoring program for fatherless teenage boys. The organization is partnered with 28 middle and high schools conducting 38 weekly meetings; 34 weekly in-school groups, and four open community groups throughout San Diego County. Plans are underway for the 2018 event.

SPONSORED COLUMNS DR. VAN CHENG San Diego Vein Institute 760.944.9263

Afraid of Spiders? When Telangiectasia is More than just Spider Veins Telangiectasia is more commonly known as spider veins, the generally innocuous cousin to varicose veins. Whereas varicose veins are the large rope-like weakened veins that carry the greater risk of deepvein thrombosis, spider veins tend to be the damaged blood vessels just below the surface of the skin, appearing like tiny purple spider webs. But does that mean there’s never a risk with telangiectasia? There are a few circumstances when spider veins may be a symptom of something else at work in the body. One condition is called hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), sometimes called Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome. This is hereditary and rare, but

HHT is a disorder that involves multiple abnormalities in the blood vessels, as well as arteriovenous malformations, including in the liver, lungs, and brain. Patients with HHT may also experience gastro-intestinal bleeding. Normally, blood carrying oxygen to the heart from the lungs is pumped at high pressure into the arteries, which allows the blood to get from the arteries into the smaller vessels and capillaries at a much lower pressure, where the blood will supply the body’s tissues with oxygen. Then, the blood goes from the capillaries into the veins and then back to the heart. However, with HHT, arteriovenous malformations occur, which means that arterial vessels flow straight to the veins instead of through the capillaries, and when it presents near the skin’s surface, they appear as red markings— telangiectases, or spider veins. Because the capillaries act as a buffer, slowing down the blood pressure, the blood flows at a high pressure straight to the veins, which are less elastic and thinner-walled. Because of the extra pressure on the venous walls, blood vessels are strained and enlarged, which can irritate or compress adjacent tissues. Sometimes HHT can cause frequent

and even severe hemorrhage, including nosebleeds. If this is the case, frequently there is also hemorrhaging in organs such as the liver, lungs, and brain. There are different types of HHT, some of which present symptoms earlier, or may involve common bleeding or leakage in different organs. Frequently, patients with HHT develop reddish-purple mucocutaneous lesions, especially in the nose, lips, and tongue. But these lesions also may occur in the upper respiratory tract, the GI tract, and in some cases, even the bronchi, bladder, and vagina. Acute hemorrhage or chronic slow bleeding may lead to anemia. In extreme cases, arteriovenous malformations in the respiratory system—pulmonary AVMs— may cause stroke, high-output heart failure, or cerebral abscess. AVMs of the liver can also cause high-output cardiac failure or cirrhosis. Somewhere between 1 in 5,000 and 1 in 8,000 people have a form of HHT. HHT often doesn’t present symptoms until the teenage years. However, it often goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. In one study involving patients with HHT, 74% had vascular abnormalities but only 8% showed symptoms.

Look to these local authorities for professional guidance on daily living at www.lajollalight.com/our-columns/

So should you worry at the first sign of spider veins? Of course not. But it is important to be alert to what your body is telling you. Most cases of telangiectasia occur because of heredity and normal pressure on the veins. Patients with HHT benefit from early diagnoses, and unless there is cirrhosis of the liver or a severe hemorrhage, rarely is there an effect on lifespan. What you should remember is how much the body is interconnected, organs and tissues working together, with the circulatory system feeding all of them. While you don’t want to become a hypochondriac, it’s also important not to put off any diagnosis or treatment. Keep your doctor apprised of any changes in your body, especially if lesions form or regular abnormal bleeding occurs. And for those with arachnophobia, we understand that while most spiders are harmless, sometimes you still want to get rid of them. At SD Vein Institute, we make it virtually painless and easy to do, even on a lunch break visit.

Assistance League chapters hold shopping event for new school clothes to children of enlisted military families

S

even-hundred and ninety children of enlisted military families at Camp Pendleton recently enjoyed a free shopping spree for new school clothes courtesy of seven chapters of Assistance League. This is the 13th year that chapters of Assistance League have collaborated to offer this shopping opportunity at Camp Pendleton. Members of the following Assistance League chapters were on-hand to guide children and parents/guardians during this event: Rancho San Dieguito, North Coast, Inland North County, Saddleback

Valley, Long Beach and Capistrano Valley. \ All of the children went home with new tops, pants, sweatshirts, underwear, socks, hygiene kits and a voucher for new shoes. Assistance League is an all-volunteer, nonprofit, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization founded to recognize the potential of volunteers in helping others attain a better, more meaningful life. Today, 120 chapters with more than 25,000 members nation-wide address the emotional and physical needs of children and adults of all ages.

Foundation supports Just in Time for Foster Youth with $1 million challenge grant Just in Time for Foster Youth (JIT) has reached a new milestone of support and partnership with the announcement of a $1 million challenge grant from the Walter J. and Betty C. Zable Foundation. The funds will be distributed over three years and enhance JIT’s capacity to serve more young people leaving the foster care system with its transformative model of creating

a community of support for them, not just today but for years to come. JIT engages a caring community of volunteers to help transition age foster youth, ages 18-26, achieve self-sufficiency and well being when they leave the foster care system without family support. In order to receive the full $1 million grant, JIT must secure matching three-year written commitments. The

deadline for the first match of $333,000 is Sept. 30, 2017, with $667,000 in additional three-year written commitments by June 30, 2018. If JIT meets this challenge, then the Zable Foundation will make the second payment of $333,000 by Sept. 30, 2018 and the third payment of $334,000 by Sept. 30, 2019.

PET OF THE WEEK

LUCKY, a 4-year-old Giant Chinchilla mix rabbit, is looking for a loving home. This sweet boy loves to interact with staff and volunteers and is very friendly. He would love to be housed in an exercise pen in his new home so he has plenty of space to hop and play, along with lots of fresh veggies to eat. His vision is limited so he would like a family who talks sweetly to him when approaching so he doesn’t get startled. He is a very social, friendly and snuggly rabbit who can’t wait to be a cherished member of your family. Lucky is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus 3450 E Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275.

Neil Simon classic at NC Rep North Coast Rep will begin Season 36 with one of Neil Simon’s enduring comedic masterpieces, “Last of the Red Hot Lovers.” Barney Cashman, middle-aged, overworked, and with no experience in covert maneuvers, is bored with his bland, “nice” life. He is anxiously trying to join the sexual revolution before it’s too late. His bungled attempts at seduction will leave audiences howling with laughter. Last season’s Laughter on the 23rd Floor by Simon was a smash sellout, so playgoers are advised to order tickets early. “Last of the Red Hot Lovers” previews begin Wednesday, Sept. 6. Opening Night is Saturday, Sept. 9, at 8 p.m. There will be a special talkback on Friday, Sept. 15, with the cast and artistic director. The show runs through Sunday, Oct. 1.

FROM NANCY WARWICK, B6

Where do you get your love for animals?

We always had a dog growing up, but I’ve always loved animals. I still have all my stuffed animals! When I was little, my dream was to be a dog-breeder someday. I had all these posters of dogs in my room. I was crazy about dogs, and I still am. I have two Poodles.

What do you do for fun?

My husband and I are really quiet people, so we really enjoy our home. I have a big garden and we enjoy the garden a lot. I love cooking, I read a lot, and I’m pet crazy. I have four cats and two dogs. Apart from that, we’re both passionate about collecting ethnic art. On my first date with my husband, when I got to his apartment I discovered he had ethnic art all over, which I’d loved since I was a little girl. Back then, we emphasized Latin American folk art, but over the years we’ve collected Asian and African art. We’re very passionate about it. We also love to travel and hike. We were in Patagonia in April.

How many books do you read?

It varies a little bit, but for the past half-year, it would be one book every 10 days to two weeks. It’s not a huge amount, but you know, I’m working (laughs). I love literary fiction and books where the story takes place in another country. I also like stories about an extended family over decades, dealing with war, strife and discrimination.

What’s the secret to recommending books?

There’s an art to hand-selling: Find out what book someone has read and really

FROM STUART COLLECTION, B5 grove breathing.” He spoke of the musical grove as a kind of chapel. “There’s the central path, and then there’s the apse,” Adams said. “Sit and listen for awhile, and you’ll hear little melodies and points of sound all over the place.” There are benches strategically placed to encourage deep listening. Even when the wind is up, the sounds are not loud, so the more attentive you are, the more you hear. “My work is about listening to nature,” Adams said. “I hope the piece encourages you to slow down and listen in a way you don’t usually do.” There’s another singing tree piece in the Stuart Collection — Terry Allen’s 1986 “Trees” — but that one involves pre-recorded music and readings. “The Wind Garden,” on the other hand, is what Stuart Collection director Mary Beebe calls “a live response to the immediate territory.” Beebe said she and project manager

enjoyed, or if they already have something in mind, or if they’re looking for something similar to a favorite book.

How do you choose your attire?

I like to shop local. I like unusual clothes, but not so trendy that I can only wear them one season. I love dresses and skirts, and I like pretty clothes. There’s a number of stores up and down Girard Avenue that have great dresses.

How has La Jolla changed over the years?

It’s gotten really run down with the trash and the broken sidewalks, but this will change dramatically with the new Maintenance Assessment District. I sit on the board of Enhance La Jolla, which I’m very excited about. Also, it will help reduce our storefront vacancy problem, because the other big change in La Jolla is the huge amount of vacancies in The Village. It’s so sad that we lost Burns Drugs next door (to Warwick’s) because there was a very symbiotic relationship between the two stores. It’s hard to fill these huge retail spaces.

What’s something about you people don’t know?

People would be surprised to learn that I’m a very introverted person and I really enjoy quiet time. I never speak to the person beside me in an airplane if I can help it — I open my book so fast, and I’m sending out all the signals! So yeah, I’m just a shy, introverted person, although at the store I come across as a more extroverted person than I really am. But I’m really bad at small talk.

Mathieu Gregoire considered adding something musical to the Collection a decade ago. At an on-campus concert, they were drawn to “The Light That Fills the World,” a shimmering orchestral piece by John Luther Adams. They decided he could fill their bill. “He came here in 2008, and we went all over the campus,” Beebe said. “At first, he was going to do several works, in different places — all natural, none of them using electricity. Once he chose the grove, instead of 32 loudspeakers, he originally wanted 32 musical instruments.” Said Gregoire, “John’s an extraordinarily hardworking artist, deeply committed to his ideas and research and wonderfully experimental. He’s put hundreds and hundreds of hours into this project.” Beebe chimed in, “I absolutely love that it makes you want to listen. I’ve heard sounds in there that I’ve never heard before.” Stop by “The Wind Garden” anytime and hear for yourself.
