DMUSD to OK new facilities master plan BY KAREN BILLING The Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD) board will soon approve a new facilities master plan, a vision of how the district’s eight schools need to physically change to align with the district’s Design 2022 strategic plan and reflect its new mission: “the unrelenting pursuit of an extraordinary school experience.” In March, the district hired OBR Architecture to refresh the existing master plan to reflect the district’s new educational goals. Once complete, the revised document will include capacity and facility needs, along with a cost analysis. Garrick Oliver and Anney Rosenthal Hall of OBR Architecture, presented the first pieces of the plan to the DMUSD board on Aug. 30 — the board members will hold a public workshop in September and they are expected to approve the completed document at the Sept. 27 board meeting. The current facilities master plan was developed in 2014 and has helped guide an estimated $6 million in work district-wide. SEE DMUSD, A16

Vergne documents unleash outrage BY SEBASTIAN MONTES The release of documents from the four-month investigation that led to last month’s termination of Pat Vergne, Del Mar’s chief lifeguard and director of community services, has inflamed the already contentious dispute into a fire storm. In one scathing diatribe after another at the Del Mar City Council’s first meeting since Vergne’s firing, a cadre of longtime residents on Sept. 5 lambasted City Manager Scott Huth for his handling of the investigation — at one point breaking out into a chant of “Fire him!” — and vented outrage toward the council for taking a

back seat as the investigation dragged on. The investigation stoked an uproar this summer as an outside investigator pored through thousands of records and interviewed 20 city employees, culminating on Aug. 23 when the city fired Vergne and two of his subordinates. The investigation details 95 instances between 2015 and 2017 that allegedly cost the city more than $200,000 — primarily for waived Powerhouse fees and erroneous overtime claims. Del Mar officials posted a trove of documents last week from the 1,700-page report, including emails and an itemized SEE VERGNE, A19

Solana Beach to feel effects of Del Mar resort BY PHIL DIEHL Del Mar will get the high-paying guests and their tax revenue, while Solana Beach will get the traffic, noise and other drawbacks from a 16-acre bluff-top resort proposed just north of Dog Beach at the mouth of the San Dieguito River. That’s the opinion of Solana Beach Mayor Mike Nichols on the proposed resort, which will have

250 hotel rooms, 86 privately owned villas, meeting rooms, restaurants and trails. Although the resort will be built on land in Del Mar, the only access to the property would be from the appropriately named Border Avenue, which divides the two cities. “We are obviously concerned,” Nichols said Aug. 31. “Del Mar gets all the TOT (transient

occupancy tax) and we get all the traffic.” The Robert Green Company and Zephyr, two Encinitas-based luxury developers, teamed up to acquire seven contiguous lots from three different families earlier this year for the project. One of the larger lots had recently been approved for five gated estates, an idea that’s been scuttled

San Dieguito Union High School District and Canyon Crest Academy continue to climb in the school ratings, recently being named the number one district and high school in San Diego County, according to a news release. Niche’s 2018 Best Public High Schools ranking is based on rigorous analysis of academic and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education, along with test scores, college data, and ratings collected from millions of Niche users. CCA also ranked as number two in the state of California, and is ranked #19 of 17,867 public high schools in America. The district also placed two other schools in the county’s top 10, Torrey Pines High School at number two and San Dieguito Academy at number six, the news release stated. The San Dieguito Union High School District is ranked number five in the state of California and Torrey Pines High School is ranked number 10 in the state of California, according to Niche’s 2018 Best Public High School ranking. Visit niche.com/k12/search/best-public-high-schools/ “We are very proud of our district and our school and also proud of our partner down the street, Torrey Pines High School. We are happy to be ranked number one in the county, but how great is it that Torrey is number two and SDA is number six? We have great educators in this district,and it is a district that has learned to do more with less, since we are the lowest funded high school district in the state of California,” says CCA Foundation Executive Director, Joanne Couvrette. “The Canyon Crest Academy Foundation’s theme for this year is ‘Grit and Gratitude’ and we are very grateful for our teachers, our students, and our parents who keep the focus on education and enrichment.” The top-ranked San Dieguito Union High School District is number 77 out of 77 high school districts in state funding, receiving just $8,319 per student in Local Control Funding Formula monies. The state average is $9,750 per student. “There are currently 12,799 students enrolled in the district, so if the district were to receive just the average funding it would be $18,315,369 more for these top-ranked high schools and their talented teachers and students,” the news release stated. The school foundations, through the generosity of its donors, contribute approximately $6 million to the school district programs each year, to fulfill their unified missions of enriching the experiences of district students. The gap in funding for the top-ranked district in the county is much higher when compared to a district with comparable demographics, the Los Gatos-Saratoga District, which SEE SCHOOL RATINGS, A18

Congressman Peters visits Pets rescued from Harvey arrive in RSF Carmel Valley Democratic Club BY KAREN BILLING The Carmel Valley Democratic Club hosted Congressman Scott Peters at its monthly meeting at New English Brewing in Sorrento Valley on Aug. 28. The meeting was also an opportunity for the club to meet Sunday Gover, a candidate for Assembly District 77. The Carmel Valley Democratic Club is only six-months old, starting in founder Tom Freeley’s Carmel Valley living room in February. Freeley said the first meeting was kind of an informal “Hey do you think we should do this?” type of gathering and when 89 people showed up the answer was “Apparently yes.” Since then they have met once a month, outgrowing the Carmel Valley Library, and have hosted a variety of guest speakers, often local candidates, at their meetings. Simon and Nina Lacey, owners of New English Brewing, offered up their space to the growing club. The brewery recently opened The Barrel Room, an event space adjacent to the tasting room that debuted at the brewery’s 10th anniversary in July. “I’m very impressed and encouraged that a club this new has this kind of attendance,” Peters said of the meeting’s turnout. In his comments, Peters spoke about the border, which he believes is “an opportunity, not a threat,” healthcare, supporting science research, veterans issues and DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), which President Donald Trump

BY BRITTANY WOOLSEY More than 60 rescued cats and dogs from Texas have made their way to San Diego. Staff members from Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe returned to the center Sept. 5 with 65 dogs and cats of all ages, who were rescued by Operation Pets Alive! and other Houston shelters to make room for animals that were displaced as a result of Hurricane Harvey. According to a news release from the Woodward Center, Houston shelters became too overcrowded to accommodate the victims who needed a place to keep their dogs and cats. "The help is important and necessary but has also left little-to-no room to take in stranded orphan dogs and cats," explained the Woodward Center. Montgomery-County Animal Shelter and Operation Pets Alive!, of Montgomery County, Texas, joined forces to save the nearly 700 pets from potential euthanasia and give them dry places to stay with food, water and required medical attention. The Woodward Center agreed to help with the rescue efforts, made possible by Southwest Airlines. The airline and its employees donated their airplane and time to ensure the animals arrived safely, according to the Woodward Center. Jennifer Shorey, operations director for the Woodward Center, was one of the four staff members who flew to Texas on Aug. 31 to volunteer to help the animals. She described the trip as emotional, as she held a 10-week-old rescued puppy. “We wanted to be helpful in any way we

could,” she said. “We were working a lot at the convention center, which became a relief center for a lot of the pets that had been displaced and evacuated. ... We worked directly with the shelters to take animals out of the shelters for those who were displaced. None of these are owned animals. They were all sheltered or in foster homes. We did what we could to alleviate that pressure because there’s going to be an influx of animals that are displaced from the hurricane.” The animals will be available for adoption beginning Sept. 7, Shorey said. People should visit animalcenter.org to see adoption updates of when animals are available.

At Casa de Amistad, tutors find a second calling

BY SEBASTIAN MONTES It’s not always the whiz-kids blazing a path toward college that hit John Gunther the hardest. Sometimes, it’s the kids he didn’t think wanted his help to begin with. Like Jose, for example. Gunther didn’t have the highest of hopes when he started tutoring the high school junior two years ago through Casa de Amistad, an afterschool program for underserved youth housed on the campus of Solana Beach Presbyterian Church. Nearly 250 kids of all ages from across coastal North County clamor each year for a coveted spot in the academic oasis Casa has cultivated in the 16 years since it grew out of the church’s Hispanic ministry. But Jose, he couldn’t be bothered. “I didn’t know why he was in the program, quite honestly,” Gunther said. “I thought, ‘He’s not going to last, he doesn’t care about school, he has no goals.’” Gunther — a retired math teacher and baseball coach — stuck with the disinterested teen, coaxing him as best he could to study or take up anything school-related. No matter what it took, he had to keep Jose talking. As the weeks turned into months, their conversation touched more often on their favorite music than it did on math, and the most Jose would say about his future was a tepid acknowledgment that junior college was a possibility. And then, midway through Jose’s senior year, something clicked. His outlook turned around. He took ownership of his academics. He would even talk at length about the four-year universities he had started looking at. By the end of the school year, Jose had charted a course to Cal State Dominguez Hills — to become a teacher, like his tutor. For 30 years, Gunther taught middle school and high school at a handful of San Diego schools. After retiring, the Solana Beach resident poured his attention full-time into coaching the UC San Diego and Point Loma Nazarene baseball teams. But before long, he couldn’t fend off his

COURTESY

Solana Beach resident John Gunther is one of 200 tutors at Casa de Amistad, an afterschool program for underserved students from preschool to 12th grade. Casa is looking for more people like him as another school year gets underway. yearning to do something more. “As a Christian, I want to help people,” he said. “The question is how I can contribute not only to society in general but to people in need here.” For the past four years, that’s meant carving out a couple hours one night a week to join the 200 other tutors that fill the church’s Debin Hall on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Their charges are mostly low-income or at-risk students who face an array of obstacles to academic success, said Nicole Mione-Green, Casa de Amistad’s program director. For many, she said, their parents want to help but lack English skills, let

alone the experience needed to make sense of Common Core curriculum. A lot of the students’ homes lack essential technologies. Even a proper desk or decent lighting aren’t a given. What is a given is that as another school year gets underway this month, the rush for Casa’s coveted spots will invariably end in a waiting list more than 50 kids long. “Everything is very much based on our volunteers,” she said. “We could take more students, but we want to keep it intimate because a lot of it is relationship building. For many of these kids, this is their only time to have a mentor.” A push in STEM subjects the last few years has helped Casa tap into the area’s abundance of retired engineers and scientists. Casa also draws a good number of college students — especially from MiraCosta College and Cal State San Marcos — as well as high schoolers from Torrey Pines High School, Canyon Crest Academy and San Dieguito Academy. But the technically disinclined needn’t be scared off from volunteering, Mione-Green said: Casa trains its tutors to use a range of skills that reach far beyond a night’s homework. “Everybody’s here because we believe in these kids, and everybody believes in the power of education. We always say the tutoring is the hook that gets the kids in, but it’s really about having a positive person in their life,” she said. “That ripple effect, it’s affecting generations. It’s one kid at a time breaking that cycle to go to college, and you know it’s going to change that family and their whole community forever.” That’s exactly what happened when Casa hosted its 2nd annual Future Leaders Award banquet this June. Jose was among several grads who had won a Casa scholarship to help defray the costs of college. He thought he might get a few hundred dollars. Inside the envelope he found a check for $6,000 and note for a new laptop. When Jose took to the podium, he searched the crowd for the man sitting next to his mother, the one who had refused SEE TUTORS, A18

Tween dancer Merrick Hanna has 'Got Talent' BY PAM KRAGEN amously taciturn TV talent judge Simon Cowell isn’t one to gush. But when it came to appraising the robot-style dancing of 12-year-old Merrick Hanna on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” this summer, he hasn’t held back. “This to me was one of the best performances I’ve ever seen on the show,” said Cowell, after the Encinitas middle-schooler auditioned in May. Since then, Merrick has continued to rise in the weekly competition series. Recently, he made it through to the semifinals, where he will compete against 21 other top acts beginning Sept. 5 (as this newspaper went to press). Merrick — who started dancing three years ago and specializes in styles known as “popping” and “animation” — said he can hardly believe the response he’s received from Cowell (who gives him a standing ovation after each performance) and the TV audience. “I’m not expecting them to stand and I don’t expect the applause, because I look at the other acts performing with me and they’re all so amazing,” he said. Cowell isn’t the only one charmed by Merrick. A Youtube video of his audition has logged more than 13.4 million views in the last three months. He’s also a huge social media star. He has 157,000 followers on Instagram, 86,000 on his Youtube channel, 37,000 on Facebook and 13,500 on Twitter. Regardless of whether he wins or loses on

Aletha said that she and her husband have tried to give Merrick and his younger brother, Sagan, a wide variety of activities and experiences, including music lessons and youth theater.

NORTH COAST - SEPTEMBER 7, 2017 - PAGE A7

Through death and grief, a couple finds love late in life BY SEBASTIAN MONTES omething inexplicable happened the first time Judy Wilson and Gene Humphrey sang next to each other. A long-standing practice at the Encinitas chapter of Tremble Clefs — a choir for people with Parkinson’s disease and their loved ones — places the sopranos and tenors on one side of the room, with the altos and baritones on the other. The two had rarely interacted in the two years they had both been members. But then chance — or was it fate? — put them side by side to sing “Love Can Build a Bridge” that day three years ago. “The hairs on our arms were going snap, crackle, pop,” Judy recalled one recent afternoon in Gene’s Del Mar home. “I was moving away and it didn’t matter because my little hairs were still trying to reach out for his. It was so ridiculous and I’m going, ‘What is this?’” Maybe it was the inscrutable will of the cosmos. Maybe it was just simple biology. Whatever was going on that day, their chemistry is palpable in the way they look at each other as they reflected on their late-in-life love story after a practice session with Tremble Clefs. The group, for them, has offered far more than a social outlet and the chance to perform at high schools and senior facilities. Tremble Clefs is a community, they say, that helped them grow forward into new lives after catastrophic loss, learning from and building on the pain of losing a loved one to the pernicious affliction.

S

SEBASTIAN MONTES

Judy Wilson and Gene Humphrey met through the Encinitas chapter of the Tremble Clefs, a choir for people with Parkinson’s disease and their loved ones. “For anyone whose spouse is dying slowly, you’re losing them all the time,” Gene said. “Years before they’ve died, they’re dying for you. Your love for them is still there but the relationship is so different.” Gene’s previous marriage had lasted 40 years and spanned his reinvention from a purveyor of fine furniture into a clinical psychologist devoted to a spiritually-based doctrine of personal growth. He had joined Tremble Clefs with his then-wife not long

after her diagnosis in 2002. For years they soldiered on, bracing for the inevitable. By the time her final days arrived, he was ready to endure the loss, devastated as he sang to her at her bedside yet overcome by a gratitude he couldn’t possibly contain. “As my wife was dying, I realized that I had, over the course of my marriage, developed a profound capacity to love,” he said. “I could feel that pouring out of my chest and onto her as she was lying there. I

realized that with her death I didn’t lose that capacity; I had gained it.” In a sense, Judy’s husband died the day he tried to strangle her in their kitchen. A violent nature had been growing in him the deeper he slipped into his dementia, she said, darker and darker until the day he wrapped his hands around her throat, a grip from which she barely broke free long enough to call neighbors. They took him to the hospital that day, and he never came home again, spending a year and a half in secured care until his death. She had by then started counseling through Elizabeth Hospice, and a year after his death, a friend convinced her to join Tremble Clefs — never mind that she hadn’t the faintest notion of the voice that had gone a lifetime untapped inside her. “I had to come up with a new life,” she said. “I had to work a lot on that, to get on with getting on.” Even from the onset of their whirlwind romance, Gene and Judy refused to shy away from the sorrow they had each endured. Instead, they embraced it, finding solace and common ground in the struggles they went through. For all its triumphs, their courtship hasn’t been free of problems of its own, whether that be their initial doubts or the long work they’ve faced in dealing with Gene’s hoarding problem.

Carmel Valley’s Elle Local students raise money for children of McCue honored by families in Houston whose homes were flooded NASA Academy Carmel Valley’s Elle McCue, who is a sophomore student this fall at Canyon Crest Academy, was selected to receive the highest honor awarded to a student at NASA’s Advanced Space Academy. The Right Stuff Award is given to one 15- to 18-year-old student who demonstrates qualities such as leadership, sound decision making, and the seeking and sharing of knowledge. Elle was extremely honored to receive the award at the ceremony in early August at the Space and Rocket Research Center in Huntsville, Ala. Elle has had an interest in space exploration and NASA since she was very young. This summer she taught a Stargazing and Astronomy camp at the La Jolla and Carmel Valley libraries as a project for her Girl Scout Gold Award. She is also involved in a fundraising effort to purchase a telescope, in memory of

She feels that she is lucky to be a member of what will be known as the “Mars Generation.” Elle’s goal is to encourage local students to become interested in the fields of space technology, astronomy and astrophysics.

Students from Canyon Crest Academy, Torrey Pines High School, The Bishop’s School, Carmel Valley Middle School, Pacific Trails Middle School, Del Norte High School, Ocean Air Elementary School, Solana Ranch Elementary School and Sycamore Ridge Elementary School, who also are members of the Alliance of Youth Leadership in the United States (AYLUS), have started a fundraising drive to raise money for children of Houston families whose homes were flooded by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding that followed. Stephen Yang, who is National President of AYLUS, said AYLUS has five branches in Greater Houston: Cypress, Fort Bend, Houston, Pearland and Sugar Land. Fort Bend and Sugar Land are hit hard by Harvey’s flooding. Families are either trapped in their homes or are staying with friends or relatives. To help children of Houston families whose homes were flooded, members of the AYLUS San Diego Branch started a local fundraising drive late Wednesday night, Aug. 30, and have raised (bit.ly/2gz6sfA) $6,500 so far. All of the funds are sent to Houston through the American Red Cross. Forty-five students participated in the fundraising for children in Houston so far: Xin (Mike) Bai, Chang (Annie) Bian, Sarah Cheng, Edison Chiu, Jessica Fan, Leonard Fan, Anais Feller, Chloe Feller,

Krav Maga Self Defense Seminar for teens, by teens on Sept. 16 BY KAREN BILLING Torrey Pines High School senior Sanil Gandhi is leading a Krav Maga Teen Self Defense Seminar on Saturday, Sept. 16 at MMA Academy in Sorrento Valley. The seminar, with members of the Torrey Pines Krav Klub, is $10 and all proceeds will be donated to Pissed Off Chicks, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting assault victims founded by Anne Marie Mihalkanin and Michael Mihalkanin, lead instructor at MMA Academy. Sanil, a longtime MMA Academy student, was moved into action after volunteering at one of Pissed Off Chicks’ self defense seminars for victims of assault. “It was very emotional and that’s when I realized how traumatic it was to be assaulted. Growing up in Carmel Valley, I never realized what other people were going through. It was really eye-opening for me,” said Sanil. “It struck me that maybe I could do something in my own community to make a difference.” Sanil said self defense is an important tool for teenagers to learn as statistics show that 14- to 25-year-olds are at the highest risk for sexual assault. One in three females will be sexually assaulted at some point in their life and one in eight males will be sexually assaulted at some point in their life. More than 27 percent of female college seniors reported having experienced some form of unwanted of sexual contact since entering college. “The whole purpose of the seminar is to spread awareness about self-defense and boost the confidence of teenagers so that

systems of self defense in the world, emphasizing defensives against real attacks. In his training, Sanil has learned how to take on threats of choking, knife and gun attacks or multiple attackers at the same time. At MMA Academy, Sanil is also a teacher himself — he is a Taekwondo instructor for the junior black belt classes and is training to be a Krav Maga level 1 instructor. Sanil started the Krav Klub at Torrey Pines last year and they meet every other week. Sanil led the club through basic combative punches and kicks and incorporated different self defense techniques as the year progressed. “Seeing the club members improve

Carmel Valley Girl Scouts change lives, earn Gold Award Girl Scouts Julia Camilleri, Brittany Jiang, Maya Kota, Rachel Lian and Kara Nepomuceno, all of Carmel Valley, have earned the Girl Scout Gold Award — the organization’s highest honor — for creating meaningful, sustainable change in the world around them. Just five percent of Girl Scouts nationwide achieve this level of recognition. Julia and Maya earned their Gold Award by helping middle school students improve their writing skills. Julia developed a 13-week creative writing program, in which she organized author presentations and led workshops and critique groups. Participants improved their techniques, discovered new genres, and grew in confidence. Julia recently graduated from Canyon Crest Academy, where she was president of the Creative Writing Club and organized a student writers conference. The daughter of Simone and Albert Camilleri, Julia joined Girl Scouts in kindergarten as a Daisy in Troop 1458. Girl Scouting is a family tradition for the Camilleris: Simone is a former Girl Scout and troop leader, and Julia’s two sisters (one of whom earned a Gold Award) were Girl Scouts as well. Maya hosted workshops designed to prepare middle school students to “write for the real world.” Moving beyond the essay formats they already master in class, she showed them how to pen news pieces, short stories, lab reports, opinion articles and personal statements. For her project, she drew on her experience as news and opinion editor of Torrey Pines High School Falconer High School, from where she graduated this year. The daughter of Rajasri and Prasad Kota,

Carmel Valley residents (l-r) Brittany Jiang, Maya Kota, Kara Nepomuceno, Rachel Lian and Julia Camilleri recently earned the Girl Scout Gold Award, the organization’s highest honor. Maya joined Girl Scout as a Brownie. She represented Girl Scouts San Diego at the 2016 United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, where she was a presenter on a panel. Maya plans to pursue a future in mechanical engineering. Brittany, Rachel and Kara focused on health issues for their Gold Award projects. Responding to an unmet need across the globe, Brittany prepared more than 100 reusable menstrual pad kits for girls in underdeveloped areas of Honduras. In addition, she educated local communities about domestic and international health issues, including the effects of the lack of proper sanitation. Brittany, whose parents are Crystal Zhang and Jeff Jiang, started Girl

Scouts as a Brownie. A National AP Scholar with Distinction, she recently graduated from Torrey Pines High School, where she was a varsity swim team champion. Rachel wrote a book and designed a website to tell her story of being diagnosed with and treated for scoliosis. The materials include advice for managing the condition, as well as X-rays and pictures documenting her recovery process. Rachel made the books and website information available to several San Diego hospitals so they could provide information and hope to other scoliosis patients and their families. A Girl Scout since Kindergarten, Rachel was a member of Troop 1115. She currently serves as a research intern at the Setting Scoliosis Straight foundation. This fall, Rachel will enter her senior year at Torrey Pines High School, where she is president of the Synthetic Biology Club, leader of iGEM (International Genetically Engineering Machine) and a violist in the advanced orchestra. Rachel’s parents are Hongyan Qu and Bin Lian. Kara’s Gold Award project addressed youth mental health. Through an online resource guide and a series of after-school workshops, she equipped youth in grades 6-8 with tools to fight stress. Each week, they learned a new stress-release method and began to develop wholesome attitudes and coping behaviors. Kara began Girl Scouts at the Junior level, as a member of Troop 1256. Kara, the daughter of Noreen Nepomuceno, graduated from Canyon Crest Academy in 2016. During high school, she was a member of the Dance Conservatory and a volunteer for a student-run chemistry club, Ignite Science. Currently a freshman at Oberlin College, Kara is a recipient of the MTS & Coca Cola Laptop scholarship. The girls are among 55 Girl Scouts in San Diego who earned the Gold Award this year and were honored during a recent ceremony.

Del Mar History

Powerhouse Park was not always a community building and park. Did you know that...

I

n the 1920s the Powerhouse really was a power plant! It not only provided electricity to the Hotel Del Mar but to all of Del Mar. It also conveniently pumped sea water to the newly built Plunge for protected swimming. Later, in the 1950s, it was turned into The Roaring ’20s nightclub where waitresses were dressed as flappers and waiters wore derbies and vests. Then, in 1965, the Powerhouse desalinated the water here in Del Mar, compliments of the Universal Water Corporation. Think about that when you are enjoying the last Twilight Concert this season on Sept. 10 in the park. My how things change. The community has the Del Mar Foundation and the Friends of the Powerhouse for rescuing and keeping it a wonderful community park today. Thanks to Nancy Ewing and her book Del Mar Looking Back for all the good history. For more information about her book and the Del Mar Historical Society, go to www.delmarhistoricalsociety.org or drop the Del Mar Historical Society a note at 225 9th St., Del Mar, CA 92014 or email info@delmarhistoricalsociety.org. The Del Mar Historical Society would love to hear your stories about Del Mar.

The letters/columns published are the author’s opinion only and do not reflect the opinion of this newspaper.

OUR READERS WRITE A perspective from the heart I have stayed out of the fact vs. fiction and right vs. wrong debate leading to Pat Vergne’s dismissal, but I don’t need more details and analysis to tell you how I feel about it. As a Del Mar Mayor and Councilman, I led the citizen-driven campaign to purchase the Powerhouse. Along with other volunteers, my sons and I participated in the quick cosmetic painting of its tired exterior. We spent the day hauling ladders and splashing paint on each other. In 2001, Michael, the youngest of my sons, died in a car accident. As I was walking to come to terms with this loss, I witnessed a skateboarder fall and knock himself out at the railroad crossing. I immediately attended to the unconscious boy. As often was the case, Pat was the first lifeguard on the scene, arriving at the same time as the boy’s father. The skateboarder quickly regained consciousness. Pat offered his condolences to me, and I asked if it would be OK if a group my friends gathered for a memorial service the next morning around a bench I’d donated to the Powerhouse Park in my father’s memory. Pat suggested that the Powerhouse might be a better place to hold Michael’s service, and, he offered its use to me. He was right about the venue and the fact that we could all hear each other there. Money never entered our conversation, and the memories formed at that service have endured as a bright spot in some very dim days.

More recently, my fellow councilman, friend, and Del Mar Mayor, Lou Terrell died when hit by a train. Del Mar lifeguards, under Pat, set up the Powerhouse for a memorial service and arranged for his ashes to be spread at sea. His wife recalls being so stunned and in shock that she thought that the lifeguards did this for everyone and never even thought about money. She remembers only gratitude during a time of great shock and sorrow. For many, Pat has been the face and heart of Del Mar. Numerous residents don’t know the City Council members or the City Manager, but they do know Pat. They have benefited from his many kindnesses –offered equally to anyone and everyone in need. Pat has played an important role in our community, helping to make it caring and personal. It appears he did all this out of the kindness; not for personal financial gain or to accrue power. I have no judgments of “fact,” but do offer a diagnosis. the City Administration has a sick heart, along with amnesia.

Statement in article incorrect I would like to correct the misinformation reported in the Aug. 26 issue of the Del Mar Times in the article: “Del Mar’s fired chief lifeguard disputes allegations.” The article stated: “The city council discussed the investigation — as well as a counter-complaint filed by Vergne

accusing Huth of harassment — in more than a half dozen closed sessions over the past two months. That culminated in an Aug. 22 closed session in which the council unanimously agreed with the firings ...” I have checked this statement individually with each member of the Del Mar City Council and have received independent responses from three members, each of whom say that the statement in the Del Mar Times (and the Union Tribune) is incorrect. They each stated that they made no such agreement regarding the actions of the City Manager at that or any of the previous closed (or public) sessions. The Council did agree that the investigations made under the auspices of the City were conducted in a fair and proper manner. They had not at the time of Aug. 22 had the opportunity to examine the testimony and evidence gathered in the investigation, and did not offer any opinions on whether the actions taken by City Manager Scott Huth, as a result of the findings was the correct response. I think that it is important that the citizens of Del Mar get truthful and accurate reporting of such an important City issue. Arthur Olson Del Mar

Correction After receiving this letter and checking his information again, reporter Sebastian Montes confirmed that it was incorrect to say that the council unanimously supported the firings. The article should have said that the council unanimously supported the way the investigation was carried out.

While the district has completed several improvement projects over the last four years, district leadership has also dedicated time researching and analyzing the future of student needs that the world demands. “(District leadership) has realized that the current facilities modernization approach is not in line with the future needs of educational practices and experiences. Facilities must be re-envisioned to provide students with a safe, healthy and technologically-advanced learning environment,” said Rosenthal-Hall. “The intent is that we must make this change, this is our charge, this is a moral imperative and it’s our unrelenting pursuit.” At the meeting, the architects presented some prototypes and floorplans for modern learning studios and innovation centers. For the modern learning studios, the architects envision indoor/outdoor space and transforming the traditional classroom layout of the teacher in the front of the class with flexible furnishings, mobile teaching stations and break-out space for student collaboration or small group instruction. For the innovation centers (formerly the school libraries), they are looking at an open layout that is connected to the campus entry and administrative offices with break-out spaces for art, technology and science. They envision varied seating spaces, open discovery spaces, writable wall surfaces and an “idea box” for students to work independently. Oliver said that the prototypes are the “best case scenario” — when they get into each campus’ details they will work to get as many of the ideas from the prototype into the existing facility. As stated in the past, the district has “significant” facilities needs, particularly at its oldest schools: 58-year-old Del Mar Heights and 42-year-old Del Mar Hills. Other needed renovations across the district include replacing aging portable buildings with permanent classrooms and upgrades to infrastructure such as technology and plumbing.

to make way for the resort. The site is essentially a triangle. One side looks out over the ocean, and one side looks over Camino Del Mar, also known as Coast Highway 101, along with the river and the nearby county fairgrounds. But the third side, which will have the resort’s only entrance, faces north along a short, narrow street with apartments and condominiums in Solana Beach. Del Mar recently reduced the lanes on southbound Camino Del Mar from two to one near the Solana Beach border, which slows traffic and sometimes causes vehicles to back up into Solana Beach. “That lane drop … is already causing problems,” Nichols said. “I can only see (the resort) adding congestion, noise” and other difficulties. Nichols said he and other Solana Beach officials have communicated with Del Mar and the developers, and that “they are aware we have issues to work out.” Del Mar Councilman

Dwight Worden acknowledged the Solana Beach concerns, and said Del Mar and the developers are working to address them. “We are committed to working with Solana Beach to make this work out for both cities,” Worden said Aug. 30. Environmental studies required for the project will take a close look at traffic, noise, visual effects and other aspects of the proposed construction, Worden said, and the developer is committed to addressing community concerns. “It has a long way to go, but it’s off to a good start,” Worden said. The Del Mar City Council voted 4-1 in June to allow the developers to file a specific plan with the city, which helps to streamline the approval process for the project. That plan, among other things, will outline new zoning for the property, which is now low-density residential. Del Mar Councilman Dave Druker cast the only negative vote, saying that

before approving anything the city should take a closer look at the effects such a large project would have on both cities. “Traffic is an issue with any project,” said Brad Termini, chief executive officer of Zephyr. His company plans to build a roundabout at the hotel entrance and is looking at ways to redesign the intersection at Border Avenue and Camino Del Mar to better handle the flow of additional traffic, he said. Both communities will benefit from the development, he said. Its trails and bluff-top park will be open to everyone, which promotes a state Coastal Commission goal of improving public access to the coast. About 100 people attended a community meeting Aug. 30 at the Powerhouse Community Center to learn more about the proposed resort. It was the third such public meeting in recent months hosted by the developer to make residents more aware of the project. The developer is

proposing buildings up to 46 feet above ground level. Most of the parking will be below ground and out of sight. The city of Del Mar owns more than one acre of the southernmost bluff-top property near Dog Beach, and that area will be left undeveloped with public access. The developer will need the Del Mar City Council and the Coastal Commission to approve the project’s environmental impact report and then the specific plan before construction can begin. Company officials said they hope to have all the approvals by late 2018 or early 2019. The Robert Green Company built the Four Seasons Aviara Resort (now the Park Hyatt Aviara) in Carlsbad, the Everly Hotel in Hollywood, and the upscale Pendry Hotel, which opened earlier this year in San Diego’s Gaslamp Qarter. Zephyr’s projects include The Park in Bankers Hill and three other luxury condominium buildings in San Diego. — Phil Diehl is a writer for The San Diego Union-Tribune

increased compared to the last three years. In 2016, there were 116 homicides, compared to 93 in 2015, 90 in 2014, and 88 in 2013. In 2012, there were 122 cases. Last year, 50 cases were due to firearms, 26 cases were due to cutting/stabbing, 22 were from blunt force, and seven were from asphyxiation. The other 11 were from less common mechanisms such as poisoning, drowning or environmental exposure. Suicides increased slightly last year with 431 cases compared to 427 cases in 2015. The County urges anyone who is struggling with depression or is concerned about a loved one to seek free mental health and substance abuse counseling. Call the County’s Behavioral Health Access and Crisis Line at (888) 724-7240. Suicide prevention and awareness information is also available at up2sd.org. As drug-related deaths continue to increase, so have the number of cases handled by the forensic toxicology laboratory. In 2016, the laboratory handled more than 2,100 cases, a hundred more cases than the previous year, and the highest increase in 16 years. In 2001, the laboratory handled fewer than 1,700 cases, but those numbers have steadily increased over the years. “In general, the findings are valuable to the law enforcement, mental health and drug rehabilitation communities and help guide how we direct resources to county initiatives like Live Well San Diego and the associated task forces on suicides, elder abuse, domestic violence, child fatalities, methamphetamine and prescription drug abuse,” said Wagner. “The death investigation work done by this office is a combination of service, education and research.” County Medical Examiner investigators are also involved in many research opportunities and are members of various multidisciplinary death review committees, including those that work to reduce trauma deaths and improve the trauma system. Pathologists, investigators and other staff also share their expertise at conferences and in academic settings, including providing a teaching rotation program for pathology residents from UC San Diego School of Medicine and Naval Medical Center Balboa, as well as brief clerkships for medical students from around the country. — By Yvette Urrea Moe, County of San Diego Communications Office

The report offers an overview of cases and examines trends in causes of death for the approximately 8,500 cases the ME’s Office investigates annually — a little less than half of the 19,000 to 21,000 deaths recorded in San Diego County every year. After an initial review, many of those cases are then determined to be sudden, unexpected natural deaths. The data in the report focuses on the 3,070 cases in 2016 that the Medical Examiner’s Office fully investigated. Of those cases, 47 percent were accidental, including deaths related to prescription drug overdoses, motor vehicle trauma, and industrial or agricultural and home-based trauma. Another 33 percent were determined to be natural deaths, 14 percent were suicides, a little more than 4 percent were homicides, and in nearly 2 percent, the cause was undetermined. The report notes that of the 307 motor vehicle fatalities last year, pedestrian fatalities went up to 101 cases, excluding two suicide pedestrian deaths. This is an increase from 93 pedestrian fatality cases in 2015. The 101 unintentional pedestrian deaths were the highest number since 1994 when there were 103 cases. Another trend was a general increase over 15 years in unintentional deaths due to drugs and medications, up to 544 in 2016 compared to 268 in 2000. In illicit drug and prescribed medication deaths, methamphetamine remained the single largest cause in 2016 with 240 cases. The number of methamphetamine death cases is also at its highest number in 16 years, increasing steadily since 2000 when there were 62 cases. Among the substance-related deaths, alcohol had the second most cases with 106. Heroin overdoses were the third largest cause of deaths with 91 cases, and were most common in the age range 20 to 29. Opiates represented the largest group of medications in the 2016 drug deaths, which included heroin, morphine and benzodiazepines. In 2016, San Diego also saw four cases involving designer drugs. The drugs included an acetyl fentanyl death, a death from mitragynine (a plant-based opioid commonly referred to as kratom), and two deaths from U-47700, an opioid analgesic not intended for human use. The data also showed that homicide rates

The moment it sells, they’ll trade in the life they’ve known for an RV and the open road — heading north if it’s warm and south if it’s cold, knowing that enough family and friends are strewn across the continent that they’ll never have to stop. As they mused about riding off into the twilight of their lives, their answers intertwined in the seamless harmony of people more deeply in love than they ever knew possible. Maybe they’ll sing and write together along the way, they said. Maybe they’ll sow the seeds of new Tremble Clefs chapters. But no matter what, they’ll carry their message to anyone who’ll listen that it’s never too late to find love. “Something I want people to know is that I’m in my late 70s and this is the most passionate relationship I’ve had in my life,” Gene said. “And I just turned 75,” Judy says. “Most people feel like it’s over.

people who have known no home but the United States makes us weaker and diminishes our standing in the eyes of the world,” Peters said in a statement released on Sept. 5. “Facing this urgent deadline, Congress must finally step up, work together, and do its job. We must move swiftly to protect DREAMers and provide them and their employers with the certainty they deserve. If Congress does not act by March 6, 2018, it is complicit in this economic and moral catastrophe.” At the Aug. 28 meeting, the audience urged Peters to find common ground with Republicans in Congress and expressed how they wanted the Democratic Party to better define what its policies are rather than just being “Anti-Republican.” Peters said he is willing to cross the aisles and he is willing to sit at the table with anyone on economic issues but on civil rights issues, such as women’s healthcare decisions or LBGT rights, there is not a lot of compromise. He said his voting record reflects Democratic values. “I’m trying to create the same opportunities that the country created for me,” Peters said. “I want to give people a chance to succeed, not to guarantee any particular outcomes, but to make sure people have a chance to move up. That means supporting good education policies, it means investments in infrastructure to put people to work right now, it means a tax code that’s progressive and pro-growth, and it means climate policy that’s sane and really responds to what’s really happening in the world.” Learn more about the club at cvdemclub.org

listing of cases in which the city says Vergne improperly waived fees. As Vergne supporters dug into the documents over the weekend, they were outraged to see what they believe to be inconsistencies and mischaracterizations. Facing that backlash at a packed meeting on Tuesday night, Sept. 5, the council took the unusual step of giving residents wider berth during the public comment portion of the meeting. The 19 residents who spoke called on the council to exonerate and reinstate Vergne, worrying that the episode has cast an indelible stain on the city’s image. “What we have been witnessing in the firing of Pat — a longtime, greatly loved employee — feels like a tip of the iceberg. This event speaks volumes about how the city is governed, values that are espoused and the culture Mr. Huth has established,” said Suren Dutia. “The peace and tranquility has been replaced by constant rumors and acrimony. One gets the feeling that the administration isn’t here to serve; they act as if their job is to rule and control us. Is this what you stand for? Please don’t have blinders. I respectfully ask, is this the legacy you wish to leave behind for the community that you profess to care about and love?” Several residents assailed the report’s credibility by pointing to instances cited in the investigation that they said were actually discounts for fundraisers, charity auctions, events by community groups — even a memorial service for one of Del Mar’s most well-known residents. They also asked the council to rewrite its policy on Powerhouse fees, harkening back

to the original intent when the center opened at the turn of the millennium. In a brief but meticulous presentation, Betty Wheeler described how the original intent was to “provide a community gathering place which encourages informal drop-by uses,” with private events meant as a secondary use. And Ralph DeMarco, who was on the city’s finance committee at the time, explained that the Powerhouse had been expected to cost $5 million but a grassroots fundraising Powerhouse campaign winnowed down the expense to $2.4 million. “We saved $2.6 million and the way we did that was Pat Vergne — and you want to talk about $150,000,” he said. DeMarco then blasted Huth and the council for “the ugly injustice” done to Vergne based on an investigation he sees as rife with inaccuracies. “What you’re doing is just exposing the city to untold liability and rancor,” he said. “The ineptitude and the incompetence is just astounding. I’ve lived here for 30 years and I haven’t seen anything like it.” A common refrain this summer was frustration over the secretive manner in which the city carried out its investigation — which city officials attributed to confidentiality restrictions and legal liability. Nonetheless, Alan Sweedler said the end result was far too drastic. “It may very well be that legally you’re on solid ground … but something much more important has been broken, and that’s the trust that people have in one another and in their form of government and the council and the city manager. You can’t run a small city where everyone knows everyone if you

don’t have that trust,” he said. “… It’s never too late to admit a mistake has been made. There is nothing that I can see in any legal or policy issues that prevents the council from reversing the decision that it didn’t make but that it supported. As we’ve heard over and over again: ultimately, you are responsible for what happens in this town.” After the residents spoke, each member of the council made a statement. They acknowledged a need to reevaluate a range of policies, including Powerhouse fees and the council’s relationship with the city manager. In a closed session that preceded Tuesday night’s meeting, the council took its first steps in reevaluating how it conducts the city manager’s annual performance reviews. But none said they are willing to reinstate Vergne. Mayor Terry Sinnott Sinnott closed out the council’s comments, resolute that firing Vergne was the proper course of action. “The conclusion I come out with after looking at the investigation and the data is that we have really two Pats. We have the one that we all love, the one that is wonderful to people, the one who is responsive to everyone. He is the one that I hope always can be successful and can move forward,” he said. “There’s another part of his responsibility, however, and that is as a manager of his department and his resources. My conclusion, based on what I saw in the report and the data in the report, was [that] he has had … some problems in that regard that warrant a termination. I fully support what this council has done and what the city manager has done. It’s been very methodical, very careful and I think very fair.”

Is Your Doctor Qualified to Treat Your Varicose Veins? Have you recently gone to your dentist’s office to see a sign posted that she now offers Botox? Does your OBGYN now offer laser treatment for telangiectasias? Is your family practitioner suddenly treating varicose veins in his office? More than ever, there is an uptick in the number of doctors expanding their practices to include cosmetic procedures. Sure, you might want to trust the doctor you’ve been seeing for years, and it’s convenient to go to one place to address all your medical and cosmetic concerns. And it’s okay, since they are MDs, right?

Why not all doctors are qualified Medical professionals have their

areas of study. But some, enticed by the promise of expanded business (and income), get quick weekend training or conference certification. Some claim that since they already have a medical degree, that it is perfectly safe for them to administer what they see as cosmetic treatment. But board-certified dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, and especially phlebologists have an expertise to see beyond shortcuts and know exactly how to treat a specific condition. Skin and veins require additional, highly specialized expertise, and it takes more than 4-day-long workshops to acquire that. Proficiently handling lasers and injections is its own area of expertise, as well, which requires a lot of education, training, and experience.

Beware the med spa Not all med spas are created equal. Some will have trained MDs, dermatologists, and phlebologists on staff. But that doesn’t mean you will be treated by those people. And while

some do use highly trained nurse practitioners to administer lasers and injections, plenty of places use less-than-qualified or barely-trained assistants. Some of these are looking for a lucrative opportunity to cash in on the cosmetic enhancement craze, but they only have minimal training. To get around this, they refer to themselves as “aesthetic specialists,” and instead of “patients,” they have “clients.” Most med spas employ aestheticians, who are trained skin care professionals. There are different types of certifications to practice, but most are not medically trained. For the most part, they may be licensed to perform facials, body treatments, wraps, rejuvenation therapies, spray tanning, and hair removal. There is also a category of medical aestheticians, who work under plastic surgeons and dermatologists to perform chemical peels, advanced hair removal, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments. Their business is beauty— not health.

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

What can go wrong There are reports of some professionals misusing sclerotherapy, or causing severe burns from mishandling a laser. Some patients have reported severe reactions to treatment or having botched procedures that have left large scars. Dermatologists are reporting an increase in their “repair” procedures to fix work done by unqualified (or underqualified) professionals, both MDs and aesthetic specialists. And remember with varicose veins: these are a medical condition. You want your sclerotherapy treatment done by a trained phlebologist or vein specialist with plenty of experience and expertise in treating veins. If you have more questions about the sclerotherapy procedure or are ready to consider sclerotherapy to remove your varicose veins, visit us at www.sdveininstitute.com or contact us at 760-944-9263.

BY BRITTANY WOOLSEY An up-and-coming San Diego singer-songwriter is getting the chance to play alongside some of the biggest musical acts when he performs at KAABOO Del Mar later this month. Matthew Phillips, alongside drummer Adam Graham, will bring his mix of alternative rock and pop to the festival’s TRESTLES by Voss Stage on Sept. 17 from 11:40 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. The set will include four original songs and two covers by the Goo Goo Dolls and Lifehouse, Phillips said. The 25-year-old lifelong San Diego resident was one of three winners of the Discovery Tour, which traveled to venues around Southern California before selecting musicians and comedians to join KAABOO’s eclectic lineup. This time around, 70 musical acts such as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Pink, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Muse and Weezer will grace the event’s stages from Sept. 15 to 17. The festival will also include works from visual artists, food from craft vendors and more experiences. Phillips shared his excitement for KAABOO and his career thus far in an interview. For more information about Matthew Phillips, visit matthewphillipsmusic.com and follow him on Instagram at mattsmusicofficial. Visit kaaboodelmar.com How long have you been a musician and how did you start playing? I’ve been playing music for seven years. I started in church as a guitar player, and I moved into being a worship leader. Then, I started to play with other musicians as a session guitar player. I found my way into being a solo artist out of default for just wanting to make my own music. How would you describe your sound? It’s a mixture of a lot of things. I would consider my music rock/alternative with pop elements to make it a little bit edgy but still family-friendly. Two of my biggest inspirations are the Goo Goo Dolls and Lifehouse. I cover their songs in my sets because I love what they’re doing and I try to

emulate people who are successful in the industry. You’ve mentioned on your website that your sound in your live shows is akin to listening to your album. How do you accomplish that? I was a sound engineer, so I’ve developed a rig that essentially enables me to have a 15-piece band with only two people. I’m doing something that not a lot of people are doing. I have a lot of instruments in the background of my music — like strings and bass — that I’ve played that really make this huge sound that normally I would have to have many more people on stage for. How did you get the chance to play KAABOO? I saw a Facebook ad for GigTown that said KAABOO was looking for local acts. I’ve worked with GigTown many times before, so I knew it was legit. I signed up, put my music in there and KAABOO invited me to come play a show at the Music Box, which is my favorite venue. I was overjoyed to play there for this competition. What does it feel like to you to be playing alongside artists like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Tom Petty? Those two names you just mentioned played the Superbowl. I’m getting goosebumps right now just saying that. It’s overwhelming, but it’s what I want to do. I want to be playing festivals like this all over the world. This is my passion and dream. How does playing KAABOO compare to the rest of your musical career? This is one of the biggest festivals I’m going to play for some time. This is definitely the biggest one I’ve played thus far. What are some of your favorite memories so far as a musician? There was a really awesome moment when I sold out the House of Blues [in San Diego]. I had just finished my last song, the stagehand looked at me and I asked, “San Diego, should we do one more?” There was this roar that happened that was a moment I’ll never forget. It was so cool to have that much support and love. What are your goals as a musician? I want to tour around the world and not just be a national act.

BY DIANA SAENGER American playwright Neil Simon once said he enjoyed watching the early comedians like Charlie Chaplin. After high school and a short stint in the Army Air Force Reserve, he began writing comedy scripts for radio and early television shows. His first play was “Come Blow Your Horn” in 1996. Since then, he has received more combined Oscar and Tony nominations than any other writer. Simon’s “Last Of The Red Hot Lovers,” which premiered in 1969, is now playing at The North Coast Repertory Theatre, whose staff claims nobody does Neil Simon like they do. Christopher Williams directs, and the cast includes Phil Johnson (Barney Cashman), Katie Karel (Elaine), Noelle Marion (Bobbi), and Sandy Campbell (Jeanette). “Barney Cashman is a bored middle-aged, overworked man with no experience in covert maneuvers,” Johnson said.

Del Mar doctor takes an alternate route with autism and ADHD

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY SEBASTIAN MONTES For three decades, Dr. Lisa Loegering steeped herself in the pharmaceutical-heavy, symptom-centric treatments of western medicine. But now, at the private practice she started last year in Del Mar, she’s carving a different path — one that relies on a nutrients-based treatment to correct deficiencies in her patients’ brain chemistry. Truth is, Loegering always harbored an interest in alternative medicine, even back during the decade she spent at the UCLA School of Medicine for her medical degree, residency and fellowship in child development and behavior. That interest only grew during her two decades of working with children at the Scripps Clinic and in the Sharp healthcare system. It was then that

attention-deficit disorder was booming and Ritalin and Adderall were standard treatment throughout the pediatric world. Parents were relieved to see their kids do better, but invariably, the side effects would arrive swiftly and sometimes be severe. “I’m sure I prescribed way too many pharmaceuticals back then,” she said. “In western medicine, you diagnose symptoms and you treat that. But you rarely look at why it happened.” More and more, she saw families turning to alternative practitioners. In those early days it was hard to separate fact from fiction, but with time, those practitioners matured the science, studies and data, giving the movement critical mass. And when she saw her father respond to a nutrients-based treatment after his

Parkinson’s diagnosis, she knew it was time for her to enter a new medical arena. First came the Institute for Functional Medicine, where she learned about building personalized treatment plans based on a detailed understanding of a patient’s genetic, biochemical and lifestyle factors. After that she immersed herself in the data-rich environment of the Walsh Research Institute, the central tenet of which is the fact that many of the vitamins, minerals and amino acids that come from food are also the building blocks in neurotransmitter synthesis. She fused those fields together with her experience as a board-certified pediatrician into the approach she launched early last year at Integrative Pediatrics of Del Mar, where

COURTESY

Dr. Lisa Loegering, a Del Mar resident for more than 20 years, is a board-certified pediatrician who now specializes in a nutrient-based course of treatment for children with autism and ADHD. She launched her private practice, Integrative Pediatrics of Del Mar, last year. she specializes in difficult cases of kids with autism and ADHD as well as anxiety and depression. “I didn’t want to be in any kind of traditional setting. I don’t want the short appointments. I already did that,” she said. “I wanted a different venue where I could use all my skills. I love alternative medicine and it made sense with my extensive experience in traditional medicine. Really, to be able to help people, to put that all together to do the most good for the kids in the most need, that’s my main goal —to be a parent’s answer to a difficult situation.”

The practice on Camino del Mar has grown over its 18 months, yet remains small enough to ensure she can give her cadre of families the intimate attention needed for her meticulous treatment. But she cautions that the treatment isn’t for everyone. Starting with a 60- to 90-minute session, she puts together a patient profile using their medical history and analyses of blood and urine to give her a vantage into the biomarkers involved in producing neurotransmitters. From there she can she carefully crafts a set of lifestyle interventions that include

supplements, vitamins and changes to diet designed to target specific changes in brain biochemistry —naturally, rather than with foreign molecules that compel the brain into abnormal states. “Not everybody’s biochemisty is right for pharmaceuticals,” she said. “For a lot of these kids, the pharmaceuticals are not working right. Some kids probably do need pharmaceutical help, but a lot of these kids are on three medications and they’re totally sedated. That’s probably not good for them, so I’ll try to get them down to two or even one.” The treatment requires vitamins in the morning and more at night. Extensive lab work is common. The regimen is typically pricier than a bottle of pills. And while pharmaceuticals can yield immediate results, her route is slower, gentler and more deliberate. Some patients need up to four months before results start to show. “It takes a certain kind of parent. People have to be patient,” she said. “With my approach, parents have to buy into wanting it.

Yoga Del Mar raises money for school in Uganda BY BRITTANY WOOLSEY The Ugandan children stood in a line about a mile long, tossing bricks to each other for what would become their new student dormitory. For Katie Nager, watching this process was seeing her good efforts put into action first-hand. Nager, studio manager at the 17-year-old Yoga Del Mar and international relations master’s degree student at San Diego State University, spearheaded a community effort to raise about $2,000 for Widows and Orphans Support Organization Uganda (WOSO) earlier this summer. For a week in late June to early July, visitors at the yoga studio dropped off cash and checks, as well as donated to an online fundraising campaign. Staff members also donated parts of their paychecks to the efforts, and more than $2,000 worth of electronics — such as MacBooks, calculators and Microsoft Office programs — were also donated by the community. “The Del Mar yogi community was just phenomenal,” Nager said. “I was pretty floored by their generosity, especially in a time when things are so chaotic and there’s so much disgust among communities. To see everyone come together to help a community on the other side of the world felt healing for everybody.” She said she believes people were compelled to help after learning about the poor conditions and hardships the Ugandan students there face, such as 150 girls sharing one dormitory. The children lived far away

from the school, so they would stay overnight, she explained. Nager, who does community development work in San Diego and has volunteered in Africa and Tanzania in the past, took the donations with her to WOSO in Uganda from July 6 to Aug. 2. The trip was part of her thesis for school, she said. While she enjoyed raising the money, showing the workers there how to use the

Projectors and solar panels were also donated, which means the students can now have movie nights. While she was there, the school also began constructing the new dormitories, which were partly paid for through the donations from Yoga Del Mar. “It was so amazing to see how much you can make change happen so quickly on the other side of the world,” she said.

electronics was the most rewarding part, she recalled. “A lot of the staff there don’t even have a computer in their main office,” Nager said. “There were just files stacked to the ceiling. To be able to give them something like this was just awesome. This software will allow them to create files and apply for grants and have solid data to apply with instead of just estimations.”

San Diego Friends of Jung Lecture to be held Sept. 15 The San Diego Friends of Jung Friday Lecture will be held Friday, Sept. 15, 7:30 p.m. at The Winston School, 215 9th Street, Del Mar, 92014. The event will feature Julie Sgarzi, Ph.D., who will speak on “Stuck Frozen, Immobilized: Finding Meaning in Psyche.” What is happening when we feel utterly stuck in our lives or on a project? Is there meaning in these feelings of paralysis that arise so frequently? What is needed to reawaken our energetic nature? Inevitably, there are times when we each feel stuck unable to live fully and connect with the creative nature of psyche and the energies needed to animate and propel us into life. In this talk and discussion, we will investigate how psyche immobilizes and frees, exploring the vital place of image and symbol in reconnecting with the unconscious and transforming what once was hopelessly stuck. Julie Sgarzi, holds a doctorate in depth psychology, and lectures and writes on contemporary issues from a Jungian and depth-psychological perspective. Non-members $20 www.jungsandiego.org

NORTH COAST - SEPTEMBER 7, 2017 - PAGE B7

Fundraiser to help mothers of critically ill newborns BY MARLENA MEDFORD Suzanne Seui was expecting her fourth child when she received devastating news: Her daughter, Manaia, would be born with a rare and serious condition that causes intestines to push into the chest cavity. It would require major surgery soon after birth, and an extended stay in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). “My heart hurt for her,” she recalled. “It pained me to know she was going to face so much at such a young age.” Seui knew because this was not her first visit to the NICU. Her older son was born with cerebral palsy — something she said overwhelmed her with stress and sadness. But this time around, Seui said she has found saving grace in Miracle Babies, a nonprofit that gives support and financial assistance to mothers of critically ill newborns in the NICU. “Knowing I have support this time around has made such a huge difference,” she said. “It makes me feel like I can get through this. It makes me feel like I can overcome anything for my kids.” Miracle Babies will be raising money to help hundreds of women like Seui during its annual gala, slated for Saturday, Sept 23, from 5 to 11 p.m. at Rancho Valencia in Rancho Santa Fe. The event — this year

themed “Celestial Serenade” — will feature a cocktail reception, dinner, live entertainment, dancing, and silent and live auctions. Dr. Sean Daneshmand founded Miracle Babies in 2009, and said aside from fundraising, the gala provides an opportunity to learn more about the full scope of work the nonprofit does. “Our big picture goal is to make society better as a whole — and we believe we can start doing that by supporting mothers because they are raising our next generation,” he explained. “If we can help give children respect and hope, I believe we will see more compassion and unity in the future.” Daneshmand explains that focusing on the mother’s wellbeing has a ripple effect that impacts her newborn — something he has witnessed firsthand as an OBGYN who specializes in high-risk pregnancies. “In the NICU I have seen mothers from all walks of life and they all love their babies the same way —regardless of their age, race, religion or socioeconomic status,” he said. “But, of course, not all mothers can to be at the NICU around the clock for months on end. And that’s a shame because a mother’s voice, her touch — that all has a profound impact on the baby’s recovery.” Through Miracle Babies,

Baby Manaia has spent the past couple months in the NICU following a major surgery. With the help of Miracle Babies, her mother Suzanne Seui has been able to spend more time bonding with her, which has helped her recovery. Daneshmand has helped thousands of mothers stay with their critically ill newborns. In fact, so far this year alone, the organization has provided financial assistance to more than 500

mothers. Beyond that, Miracle Babies supports mothers by educating them about how to prevent preterm births, and providing them with counseling

CONCEIVE perfect tranquility

services to deal with the emotional trauma of having a critically ill newborn. The nonprofit also funds medical research, and hopes to begin offering educational support for children who spent time in the NICU, as many have lingering learning challenges. Seui said she will be forever grateful for Miracle Babies, and encourages others to support its mission however they are able. “This is literally a chance to change someone’s life,” she said. “I can promise you I would not have made it through this very difficult time of my life without Miracle Babies. And I’ve formed relationships and gained knowledge that I will carry with me. Miracle Babies has helped me be a better mother, which will benefit my children — and I’m so thankful for that.” Tickets to Miracle Babies’ gala can be purchased on the event website at www.miraclebabiesgala.org. Sponsorship opportunities are also available starting at $5,500. Underwriting opportunities and in-kind donations are also being accepted. For more information please contact Miracle Babies at (858) 633-8540 or via email at gala@miraclebabies.org. For more information about Miracle Babies, visit www.miraclebabies.org

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

Sassy soulful comfort foods in the Big Easy

fter traipsing through New Orleans for five sweltering days, my stomach’s been asking my brain and mouth, “Y’all know what’s happenin’ down here?” It’s gorging on southern Louisiana delights, that’s what! Sampling a cuisine that blends Creole (itself a mix of French, Italian, Irish, Haitian and South African culinary influences), zippy Cajun (Acadian/French Canadian roots), soul food and seafood, with a mother lode of sugar and spice, and long grain white rice. I’d like to take you on a journey of gustatory excess of southern hospitality and heartburn, and I’ll atone for all of that with a healthier version. Before the ground gets so hot that you can practically char oysters on it, head out for a sweet or savory traditional breakfast. Fresh handmade beignets are as much a part of the New Orleans cuisine as croissants are to France, and cannolis are to Italy. These airy deep-fried dough squares generously dusted with powdered sugar melt in your mouth and recite a poem at the same time. Beignets pair well with café au lait, a concoction blending coffee with boiled milk and roasted chicory, a herbaceous root that adds a deep chocolate essence to the cup of joe, along with an immune boosting oomph, digestive aid to put the skids on heartburn (thank goodness), and dose of liver detox. For those whose taste buds crave salt and spice in the morning, then an andouille sausage omelette with a side of southern grits (creamy ground corn meal) or Cajun hash browns will serve up a lively petit dejeuner. While breakfast offers the most delicate and refined dishes, lunch and dinner fare, on the other hand, can be wild, bayou swamp-inspired, and somewhat primordial

running the gamut from grilled alligator tail harpooned on a stick (reminiscent of chicken with a jaw work-out) to deep-fried crawfish Po’boys, a rustic sandwich on a French loaf dressed with Creole sauce, lettuce and tomato. Those Louisiana crustaceans that resemble miniature lobsters are belovedly nicknamed “mudbugs” by locals; quite divine despite the moniker. In fact, any Po’boy (or Poor boy so named since this gargantuan sandwich can practically feed a whole family) whether filled with fried catfish, shrimp or oysters, harmoniously blends textures and flavors like a jazz quartet. Oysterphiles can also enjoy the bivalve shucked and eaten raw with a tangy cocktail sauce, or charred on an open flame smothered in a Parmesan crust, accompanied by warm garlic butter. Even with triple-digit temps, no one can resist a steamy bowl of gumbo with either a seafood or chicken and sausage base, laced with Cajun spices, and topped with a dollop of long grain rice. A close culinary cousin, Jambalaya, much like a southern-style Paella, is a spicy rice, sausage and seafood mélange that leaves mouth-watering memories. When it comes to desserts, NOLA is the home of decadent praline (a butter, brown sugar and pecan confection), and flamboyant Bananas Foster. The latter was created by the owner of the New Orleans’ eatery, Brennan’s, when bananas were an abundant South American import in the early 1950s. The tropical fruit was sautéed in butter, brown sugar, dark rum and banana liqueur, and then set ablaze in a flambé preparation, and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The restaurateur named the dessert after his friend (Chairman of the New Orleans Crime Commission) Richard Foster.

N’awlins Seafood Gumbo ■ Ingredients: 1/2 cup vegetable oil (olive, sunflower, your choice); 4 tablespoons unbleached four; 1 large onion, diced; 1 green pepper, diced; 2 celery stalks, chopped; 4 garlic cloves, minced; 1 cup okra (fresh or frozen), chopped; 4 cups chicken or seafood broth; 2 cups chopped or strained tomatoes; 2 pounds large, wild-caught shrimp, peeled; 1 pound lump crabmeat; 1 pound firm white fish (halibut, cod, your choice), bite-size chunks; 1 bay leaf; 1/2 teaspoon each oregano, basil, thyme, paprika; 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce ■ Method: In saucepan on medium heat, add flour and half the oil, and stir until a light brown roux is formed. Set aside. In large skillet or soup pot, add remaining oil and sauté vegetables until tender. Add broth, tomatoes, herbs, spices and roux. Simmer covered for 1 hour. Add fish and seafood, and cook for about 15 minutes until shrimp is pink, and fish cooked through. Ladle into bowls with a dollop of long grain white or brown rice, and garnish with fresh chopped parsley. Serves 6-8.
