BY KRISTINA HOUCK After more than two years of debate between Solana Beach residents who want to rent Fletcher Cove Community Center for private events and community members who fear adverse impacts from parties, the divisive issue is headed to the ballot. The Solana Beach City Council on Nov. 6 had to decide whether to adopt a use policy they don’t support or spend about $200,000 on a special election. Council members unanimously voted to call a special election for Feb. 11, 2014, allowing voters to have their say on a use policy for the facility. Deputy Mayor Thomas Campbell, who was on vacation, participated in the meeting by phone. “What’s most fair to all parties involved — the petitioners, the neighbors and the people who signed the petition — is to follow this process, let everybody have their voice and let’s hear the outcome,” said Councilman David Zito, who noted this is the city’s seventh qualified citizen petition in 18 years. After months of debate and negotiations, the council on Aug. 28 adopted a use policy for the facility, which overlooks the ocean at 133 Pacific Ave. Introduced during a special meeting Aug. 7, the policy permits no more than one private party rental at $50 per hour with a two-hour minimum every other weekend during the trial period, which ends Dec. 28, 2014. No more than 50 guests are allowed at events, which require a security guard. Beer and wine can be See VOTERS, Page 6 NEW LISTING

Teen ‘sexting’ a serious problem police report at community meeting BY JOE TASH Sexting, in which teens take and send sexually suggestive photos of themselves and others with their smart phones, is a serious problem that can have devastating consequences, San Diego police said at a community meeting held in Carmel Valley on Thursday, Nov. 7. The meeting, which attracted between 75 and 100 local parents and teens, came in the wake of an acknowledgement by police that they are investigating a string of recent incidents in which photos of underage girls have been shared by local high school students. No arrests have been made in the case, but the investigation is ongoing, said Sgt. Chuck Arnold of the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. “It appears there are

students at several high schools that have pictures of other students and they have obtained them in different ways,” said Arnold. He declined to say which high schools are involved in the investigation, but said the case was triggered by a call from officials at one of the schools. The practice of teens sending inappropriate photos is pervasive, both locally and across the country, said Arnold. “I would say that at a very large percentage of middle schools and high schools across this nation, this is a problem,” Arnold said. Thursday’s presentation by Officer Jordan Wells, who works with juveniles and is based in the department’s Northwestern Division, was held in the gym at Cathedral Catholic High School. “We need to have this

conversation, it’s difficult,” said Wells. Although teens may see the practice as harmless, it can have a number of negative consequences, ranging from photos showing up online years later to damage reputations, to causing humiliation that brings some students to the brink of suicide, he said. There are also legal implications: when a person under 18 takes or sends a nude or sexually suggestive photo, even of him or herself, the act constitutes a crime, Wells said. Suggestive photos that may start off as a private interchange between boyfriend and girlfriend are often distributed broadly throughout schools and even end up on the Internet, where sexual predators can find them. “Now the monster is using that, looking at your See PROBLEM, Page 7

BY KRISTINA HOUCK It seemed as though Del Mar residents favored residential over commercial development on vacant property on the southwest corner of Jimmy Durante Boulevard and San Dieguito Road, according to comments at a July 29 community open house at the Powerhouse Community Center. But a group of community members gathered Nov. 7 to prove some locals are against Watermark Del Mar. Nearly 40 attendees assembled at the Parish Hall in St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, most in clear opposition to the one- and two-story multi-unit project proposed by San Dieguito Land Partners LLC. Del Mar Councilman Al Corti and Councilwoman Sherryl Parks also attended the meeting to hear what those in attendance had to say. Unveiled during the open house in the summer, the design concept for Watermark Del Mar features 54 one- to four-bedroom apartments and townhomes on the 2.3-acre site. Plans include seven affordable housing units, four of which would be deeded at no cost to Del Mar Community Connections, a local volunteer organization. Del Mar resident Arnold Wiesel, who said he lives about 300 feet away from the project site, organized the meeting to assemble opponents of the project after learning that San Dieguito Land Partners filed a permit application for the project with the city. “I just don’t know how this happened,” said Wiesel, who also serves as president See PROJECT, Page 6

Four San Diego Mayoral candidates address a variety of issues at Carmel Valley forum

Local resident plans to put measure on next year’s ballot to expand California’s Legislature

BY JOE TASH Attendees at a mayoral forum in Carmel Valley on Thursday, Nov. 7, got a glimpse of the philosophies and styles of four of the candidates as they tackled such issues as combating childhood obesity and promoting solar energy. Four of the 10 people vying for the city of San Diego’s top elected office in a Nov. 19 special election showed up for the forum, hosted by the San Diego Coastal Chamber of Commerce at the AMN Healthcare building, while six others did not, including two of the leading candidates, Nathan Fletcher and Kevin Faulconer. On hand were former San Diego City Attorney Mike Aguirre, San Diego Councilman David Alvarez, restaurateur Sina “Simon” Moghadam, and builder/Realtor Harry Dirks. The absence of the other major candidates didn’t sit well with some of those in attendance. “This is a huge area, Carmel Valley,” said Maryanne Petrilli, who works for a life insurance company.

BY JOE TASH A Rancho Santa Fe man has revived his proposal to expand California’s Legislature to 12,000 members in an effort to reduce the influence of campaign contributions in state politics. Under the proposed ballot initiative put forward by John Cox, a CPA and attorney who moved to San Diego County from Chicago in 2011, each member of the state Senate would represent a district of no more than 10,000 people, while Assembly districts would include some 5,000 residents. “We know that California is on a bad trajectory here,” said Cox. “We think the neighborhood legislature is only way to bring the power back to the people and away from campaign funders.” The idea behind the plan, which was inspired by the 400-member New Hampshire Legislature, is for legislative districts to be small enough that candidates could campaign door-to-door, and would not need loads of campaign cash to compete. Cox — who controls a multimillion dollar real estate portfolio and provides financial advice to wealthy clients — said he is willing to put up to $500,000 of his own money into the initiative, and will need to raise even more to support the measure on the November 2014 state ballot. Surveys show that Californians have become jaded about the state’s political process, convinced that campaign contributors control what happens in Sacramento, Cox said. Voters are so apathetic that only about 50 percent of those eligible to vote in San Diego and Orange counties actually register, he said. “Then when they do register, they don’t come out to vote, they stay home. Surveys tell us the reason is they don’t think their votes count,” he said. The Neighborhood Legislature Reform Act would

Photo/Joe Tash “You can get your picture taken with a baby but you can’t come to this?” Petrilli, who said she had already marked her mail-in ballot, asked the candidates whether she could get a new ballot and change her mind, noting that the candidates who attended Thursday’s forum had a one-in-four chance of earning her vote. County Registrar of Voters Michael Vu said that if voters have marked their ballot, but not mailed it in, they can check a box on the envelope to indicate the ballot is “spoiled,” send it in, and a new ballot will be mailed to them. However, voters who have already mailed in their ballot to the registrar’s office won’t be able to change their vote. The candidates are seeking to fill the remainder of former Mayor Bob Filner’s term, who resigned in August amid allegations of sexual harassment by a number of women. Each candidate briefly introduced himself before questions were taken from the audience of about two dozen people.

Local company translates classified documents on Halabja chemical attack BY KRISTINA HOUCK A local company has a crucial role in an effort to have the United States recognize the chemical weapons attack on Halabja as genocide. In an attempt to get the U.S. Congress to officially declare the former Iraqi government’s attack as genocide, Carmel Valley-based Imani Lee, Inc. translated documents about the March 16, 1988 massacre. “We’re honored to do this project,” said Bahar Martin, vice president of Imani Lee and wife of Lee Martin, founder and owner of the language and translation services company. She lived in Sulaymaniyah at the time of the attack, which is about an hour away from the northern Iraq town of Halabja. “I’m proud we’re a part of this history. We want to announce it to the world that this happened.” Imani Lee received the documents from an official Kurdish delegation on Aug. 14. It took the team 72 days to translate, harmonize, certify and notarize 108 pages, which include official government and military documents as well as eyewitness accounts of the attack. Saddam Hussein signed one of the documents, “Decree No. 160.” The decree officially declared Ali Hassan al-Majid — Hussein’s cousin who was known as “Chemical Ali” — as the president’s official representative in the northern Iraqi region, including in the autonomous state of Kurdistan. This decree gave al-Majid full authority over this section of the military grid, the military’s actions in the area, and consequently the attack on Halabja, which took place almost a year after the decree was issued in March 1987. “It took me back to the time when Saddam’s regime was running the country. We suffered a lot,” said Project Manag-

The Imani Lee team. Photo/Kristina Houck er Raid Behnam, who also served as Arabic editor, and worked alongside English senior editor Rebecca Christian, assistant editor Joon Park, and a team of three linguists. An Iraqi native, Behnam, served in the Iraqi military and the coalition forces, and later worked as a linguist for the U.S. military. “This is the first time I had a look at some of these hidden documents,” he said. “During Saddam’s regime, a normal person wouldn’t take a look at top-secret documents.” The attack, which occurred in the days preceding the conclusion of the Iran-Iraq War, killed about 3,000-5,000 Iraqi Kurds and injured about 7,000-10,000 others. The post-Hussein Iraqi government executed al-Majid in January 2010 for his role in the attack on the Kurdish town and other crimes against humanity. In 2011, a majority of the Iraqi parliament voted to officially recognize the attack as genocide. The Kurdistan regional government hopes the U.S. will now officially recognize the attack as genocide. In the coming weeks, the English translations will be submitted as evidence to a congressional committee tasked with drafting the resolution. The delegation ex-

pects the Congress to vote in December. In addition to pursuing a congressional vote, the delegation plans to present the documents for display in the Library of Congress and the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. “This is a very important project. This is the first time a Kurdish team, along with an American team, are working on such an important project,” said Huner Aswer, project manager and senior U.S. Embassy liaison. Just 5 years old at the time of the attack, Aswer and his family fled about 80 miles to Iran. “We want to help the case be recognized globally. We want to remember this tragedy every year so that it does not happen, not just in Iraqi Kurdistan, but in any other part of the world.” For more information, visit

Del Mar resident among Salvation Army women’s group honorees for 2014 By Susan DeMaggio Del Mar resident Carol Katz is among The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary 2014 “Women of Dedication,” selected for their outstanding service work in the community. The honorees were introduced Nov. 7 at a Presentation Tea hosted by member Terry Cooper at her La Jolla home. Katz will join other area humanitarians to be feted at the 49th annual Women of Dedication luncheon and fundraiser, Tuesday, April 9, at the San Diego Sheraton Hotel & Marina. The Women of Dedication (WoD) were chosen by an anonymous selection committee comprised of five previous WoD, who met to review the nominations submitted by other past WoD recipients. Among the many programs supported by The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary are The Door of Hope (for pregnant teens), The Haven (a therapeutic group home for foster care teens who are parenting), Transitional Living Center (for homeless mothers and children), Adult Rehabilitation Center Women’s Residence, and Betty’s House, a residential program for victims of human trafficking. For more information about joining or supporting the Women’s Auxiliary, visit or call Pamela Lennen at (619) 446-0273. About Carol Katz: A loving theme that runs through the volunteer life of Carol Katz is children. Katz is a strong, devoted and highly trained advocate for our most tender citizens. Katz served as a Co-Op

Chair of the Tea and an honoree, Carol Katz, with former Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary president Patty Moises and current president Karin Donaldson. Preschool president and a Girl Scout leader. She was president of the Rady’s Children’s Hospital’s Del Mar Auxiliary, where she chaired creative events as well as being education chair and in-hospital representative. Katz has been instrumental on the Rady’s Children’s Hospital Board, chairing Leadership and Strategic Planning, and serving on countless committees, including Carly’s Garden and the Charity Ball. Katz is dedicated to the full development of children and youth at the junior high and high school levels by serving on the Earl Warren Jr. High PTA board and chairing two galas for San Dieguito Academy. At Torrey Pines High School, Katz served as president of Student Assistance Services and founded a forum called “It Takes a Family.” One of her proudest accomplishments is creating a DUI event called “Every 15 Minutes,” working closely with the San Diego Police, the Fire Department and Scripps Trauma Unit. “Every 15 Minutes” is a powerful program that plays out the dangers of drinking and driving with sobering reality by simulating the loss of friends on campus. Katz completed specialized training with California State Office of Emergency Services, serving on the Sexual Assault Response Team. She is the current president of Project Safe House Auxiliary. Katz has been president of the Children’s Home Society, a member Las Proveedoras Del Norte, and planned an annual authors luncheon for Words Alive.

VOTERS continued from page 1 served, but there is a twodrink limit per guest, and a trained host is required. Members of the Friends of the Fletcher Cove Community Center wanted a less restrictive policy, so the group filed a voter initiative with the city on Aug. 27 to remove regulations from the site. The initiative would allow up to two parties every weekend, with as many as 100 guests at events, and alcohol limited only by state Alcohol Beverage Control rules. The group, which originally launched its initiative after council members tabled the matter in June, had to collect 1,311 valid signatures from Solana Beach voters within 180 days to prompt a special election on the measure. In about a month, paid workers and volunteers collected more than 2,000 signatures, said Solana Beach resident Mary

Jane Boyd, who backed the initiative along with former Solana Beach Mayor Thomas Golich and resident James Nelson. In a letter addressed to the city clerk on July 9, 2013, Boyd, Golich and Nelson requested that a special election “be called and scheduled for the earliest possible date after the qualification of this initiative.” Nevertheless, Boyd and other initiative supporters urged council members during the meeting to adopt the initiative to avoid a special election. “Calling a special election at the cost of $200,000 is a decision that the City Council will be totally responsible for. And although there is a concerted effort to put a different spin on it, only the council can be held responsible,” Boyd said. “The people who signed the petition are clear about what it says and we all understand you have a choice: adopt the initiative or immediately submit it to the


voters and let them decide. “So much time and energy has been wasted on this issue. Let’s not waste $200,000 for no explicable reason.” Solana Beach resident Bruce Berend recalled a celebration he hosted at the community center in 1995. At the time, the building was used for private functions before it fell into disrepair. “Several people in this room would attest it was a very nice party,” Berend said. “It couldn’t come close to being replicated under the restrictions of the current so-called compromise policy.” Since the $350,000 renovation of the 1,100-square-foot center was completed in 2011, some residents, like Berend, have asked to once again use the facility for parties. After all, community members contributed around $225,000 to the project. Other residents, however, have expressed concerns about noise, traffic, parking and public safety. The petition circulated by the Friends of the Fletcher Cove Community

of the Del Mar Hillside Community Association. “It does seem like a runaway train because you would think everyone, especially our council people, would have a very delicate sense of balance with an optimum of priority to represent.” In a letter to the editor to the Del Mar Times, Del Mar Mayor Terry Sinnott confirmed the city has received an application for a specific plan for the property at the corner of Jimmy Durante Boulevard and San Dieguito Road, and it does propose multi-family housing. Submitted last week, the application is now undergoing an initial review by staff, he said. Because the application was recently filed, there have not yet been any public hearings, or review or action by the planning commission or the city council, Sinnott said. The proposal, Sinnott noted, will be subject to noticed public hearings, an environmental review, council review and the city’s design review process, including the city’s Citizen Participation Program. “…The process is in place to thoroughly review the proposal and to seek community input,” Sinnott said. “Our City Council, planning commission and design review board will work hard to achieve a positive project outcome for Del

Center was certified on Sept. 25, after the San Diego County Registrar of Voters verified a sufficient number of signatures. It was presented to the council along with the council’s options at the Oct. 9 meeting, when council members ordered staff to prepare a report outlining potential impacts the proposed initiative could have on the city. The council received the report on Nov. 6. If the group waited about a week to file the petition, the measure could have been included in the June 2014 primary election, which would have cost $10,000 to $15,000. The petition missed the deadline for the June election by four days, however, according to the staff report. Although Boyd has said her group was not aware of the timeline, council members and some members of the public believe the group intentionally submitted their signatures early to trigger a special election. “Right now, the sponsors of the party policy are engaged in some serious political backpedaling,” said Solana Beach resident Kelly Harless, a member of the

Friends of Fletcher Cove, a community group she said formed out of concern about misinformation being spread to the community. “Even though they asked for a special election in their notice of intent, gathered signatures for an election and turned in their signatures early enough to ensure a special election, they are steadfastly campaigning against the very election they orchestrated.” If adopted, the initiative could only be modified by a public vote. Therefore, Harless and other initiative opponents asked council members not to adopt the use policy, and instead, move forward with a special election. “I urge you, as city council members, to preserve your ability to govern this great city of ours. I’m sad — I’m mad that there are those of us who want to bring Washington-style gotcha politics to Solana Beach,” said Solana Beach resident Gordon Johns, who also encouraged citizens to get informed and go to the polls. “Let’s not back away from the fight. Let’s have ev-

erybody fully informed about what the issue is. The issue is democracy and whether Solana Beach is for sale.” The 1,311 signatures gathered represent 15 percent of registered voters in the city. Mayor Mike Nichols said the other 85 percent should have an opportunity to have their say. “Fifteen percent of the people signed it. They were told they were going to get a vote on this,” Nichols said. “I think that other 85 percent’s voice needs to be heard.” At the recommendation of the ad hoc committee, which included Zito and Councilwoman Lesa Heebner, the council decided not to submit a competing initiative for a community center use policy. The council can write an argument for or against the initiative, which is due by 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 20. Rebuttals are due by 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 2. “I support democracy, and I support letting people decide,” Nichols said. “Regardless of the outcome, we all need to move on and just live with it.”

Mar.” Council members added the project among the list of future topics for council agendas during a special meeting and workshop on Sept. 9. The city in 2008 approved the construction of a commercial project known as the Riverview Office Complex at the site, but some residents opposed the project and requested the land be used for affordable housing, said Tony Cassolato, a managing member of San Dieguito Land Partners, during the open house. Because the site is located in a commercial zone, the applicant is requesting the city amend the zoning to allow for residential use. The open house highlighted the fact that the project would provide affordable housing units where police officers, firefighters, public school teachers and others with annual salaries from $37,000 to $73,000 could live. According to Del Mar’s Housing Element, which was adopted by the council on May 20, 2013, and certified by the state on June 6, 2013, the city needs to accommodate 22 lower income units. Members of the public argued the city wouldn’t be considering the project if it didn’t have to meet this requirement. “The motivation for this thing is real simple: It’s it bail out the politicians

that have not done their job for more than 10 years,” said resident Richard Anglin. “We’re all in this city together,” Hershell Price said. “Why should it be up to three or four people that’s elected at a particular time to vote something in that we have to live with for the rest of our lives?” Others argued against the need for affordable housing. Parks told attendees that there is a need in California to let people have an entryway into housing. “People have to spend so much money on their rent, then there’s not enough other discretionary money to help with their children, their education, food and all the other necessities,” she said. “So what the state has done is allocate these kind of prescriptions for each community.” Another speaker, also against Watermark Del Mar, urged attendees to fight the project due to its proposed size and density, not affordable housing. “I think we need to focus on that because I think those are the issues that people who have typically protected these kinds of developments from coming into Del Mar have focused on,” Julie Korsmeyer said. “Forget about this thing that they’re throwing up for the City Council to jump on. We don’t want to be the ones who are against affordable housing.”

Pleased with the turnout, Wiesel noted he sent meeting notices to residents in the mail just two days before. However, mention of the meeting was included in Wiesel’s letter to the Del Mar Times’ editor, which was published in print Oct. 31 and online Nov. 1. A short meeting announcement was also published in the Del Mar Times Oct. 24 and Oct. 31. Wiesel also announced that the Nov. 7 community meeting would be held during the public comments portion at the Del Mar City Council’s meeting on Nov. 4. “This is an incredible sized group, never to be expected,” Wiesel said. “I imagine there is a deep interest and concern of our fellow citizens about this. We will stay united.” He urged attendees to provide their contact information and join him in an effort to petition the council. If the council approves the project, he noted the community will have 30 days to sign a referendum and put this to public vote. “If it goes to public vote, I don’t believe there is much of a group that would vote against us,” Wiesel said. “Our values are intact. We love Del Mar; it’s a beautiful place. The standards and character of community need to be consistent. This is not the time to jump ship. We have a winning formula here.”


PROBLEM continued from page 1 child’s photo,” Wells said. “It’s going to be (online) permanently, it’s going to end up harming them,” he said. Wells delivered a toughlove message, urging parents to monitor their children’s use of computers and smart phones, and take appropriate action if sexually suggestive photos are found, which could include notifying authorities. Parents need to know about “photo vaults,” which are secret digital lockers on smart phones where inappropriate photos can be hidden, Wells said. He also cautioned that photos sent on Snap Chat — a popular app that allows teens to send instant photos of themselves to their friends — don’t necessarily disappear a few seconds after they are transmitted, as teens may believe. “The apps are out there. They open it up and it saves it automatically. Snap Chat is permanent like everything else,” he said. Wells said he is planning a future session at which he will describe in detail methods that parents can take to protect their children, including software that allows them to monitor and control their online actions. Those who want to be notified of the event can email Wells at jvwells@pd. to be placed on his email list. Arnold, of the Internet task force, said one simple step parents can take is to contact their cell phone and Internet providers and ask for assistance with their built-in parental control software. “Call your provider and ask for help,” he said. The reaction to Wells’ talk was mixed; some parents expressed concern about police becoming involved in sexting investigations at local schools, while others welcomed the message. Eden Westgarth, a mother of four, said parents such as herself are concerned that students could be inadvertently caught up in a criminal case just by reporting a suggestive photo they have received. “We have to find a way to educate, not criminalize,” she said. But others said it is important for parents to hear they have an obligation to monitor and control their children’s Internet use, and to provide consequences when the rules are violated. “I think a little slap on

November 14, 2013 the hand while they are under your roof can prevent more serious problems down the road,” said Mariesa Depinto, a parent of a Cathedral student. Wells said parents need to be involved, and he praised those who attended Thursday’s session. “If we don’t put our foot down and deal with this, it’s going to get worse,” he said. Wells said parents can get additional information to help them protect their children at ICACtaskforce. org.

FORUM continued from page 2 Dirks stressed his background as a business owner and manager. “I’m a responsible, trustworthy person, that’s my nature, my hallmark, when I do business with people.” Aguirre — who ruffled feathers at City Hall during his tenure as city attorney — joked that he was known for his low-key style and avoidance of controversy. But he said he would focus on improving services for the city’s neighborhoods. “As mayor I will not underfund roads in order to overfund pensions.” Moghadam, who like Dirks is a first-time candidate, pledged to downsize city government to only the most essential services. “There’s an old saying, politicians promise bridges. But who checks if there’s a river? Do we need it? The city makes a lot of promises, as residents we could end up paying for those promises.” Alvarez, who was elected to the City Council in 2010, said he would focus on developing all sectors of the city’s economy. While a lot of attention is paid to the requests of large corporations, he said, “what about the little guys, someone trying to start a business? How is the city helping them?” Alvarez and Aguirre both saw a role for the mayor on the issue of childhood obesity, with Alvarez pointing to a shortage of parks throughout the city where children can play. “We need to lead by example,” Alvarez said, noting that he rides his bike to work from his home in Barrio Logan. But Moghadam and Dirks said families should be responsible for making sure children eat healthy foods and get plenty of exercise. “I will not do anything. It’s not the government’s responsibility for your personal life,” Moghadam said. He took a similar position on the issue of helping San Diego stay in the lead on the use of solar energy. Alvarez, however, cited policies designed to encour-

age the use of alternative energy, including solar, that he has supported on the council. “We’re pushing these policies forward,” he said. And Aguirre said that if elected, he would bring in experts from Europe to help San Diego create an alternative energy plan as a way of reducing costs, increasing reliability and cutting pollution. “We’re falling behind competitively,” of countries such as Germany, Spain and Austria in the realm of alternative energy, he said. Tracy Aragon, vice chair of the San Diego Coastal Chamber, said she thought the event was a success, both because the audience got to meet some of the lesser known candidates, and also hear their positions on a variety of different issues. “I liked that it was a small, intimate forum,” she said.

BALLOT continued from page 2 amend the California Constitution to change the way the state’s laws are made. Each of the existing 80 Assembly districts and 40 Senate districts would be carved into 100 neighborhood or sub-districts. The 100 members of each larger legislative district would elect one representa-

tive to go to Sacramento as part of a working committee that would function similarly to the existing Legislature. However, before the governor could sign a bill into law, the full 12,000-member Legislature would have to approve it on an up-ordown vote taken over the Internet, Cox said. Neighborhood legislators would be paid $1,000 per year, while the 120 working committee members would earn $50,000 per year. The state’s 120 legislators currently earn $90,526, which will increase to $95,291 on Dec. 1. Legislative candidates could still spend money if they wanted to, said Cox, but the playing field would be much more level for those who simply wanted to campaign by meeting faceto-face with people in their neighborhood districts. “We are saying, this is the greatest transfer of power since 1776,” Cox said. Cox first brought the initiative forward in 2011, when he filed to put it on the 2012 ballot. But he later decided that year’s ballot was too crowded, and decided to put off the campaign for two years. He’s now assembled a committee of about 25 people in San Diego County, and hired a paid staff of 15 deployed throughout the state. Supporters have met with hundreds of different groups over the past several months, seeking to educate

state voters about the proposal. Cox filed a request for “title and summary” with the state attorney general’s office on Oct. 24, and hopes to be able to begin collecting signatures in January to put the measure on the ballot. Supporters will need to gather 807,000 signatures, Cox said. Cox said the measure would not unduly complicate state elections, because small precincts are already set up, and ballots vary from precinct to precinct due to elections for seats on small agencies such as town councils, water districts and school boards. Tens of millions of dollars would be saved by reducing the salaries of legislators and cutting legislative staffs by 50 percent, he said. He’s also not worried about asking voters to dramatically increase the number of legislators in California at a time when approval ratings for legislative bodies — at both the state and national levels — are at record lows. “These aren’t politicians. These are basically people in their communities who are volunteers,” he said.

Local resident wins at U.S. National Arabian and Half-Arabian Championship Horse Show BY KAREN BILLING Local resident Beth Jupp is now a two-time national age-group champion in Half-Arabian driving. In October, Jupp defended her 2012 Half-Arabian Pleasure Driving title at the US National Arabian and Half-Arabian Championship Horse Show, winning her age group again in the 2013 show in Tulsa, Okla. The show ranks as the most prestigious North American championship in the Arabian show horse industry. She also won a top ten under saddle in the HalfArabian Over 40 Amateur Owner to Ride. “It’s very, very exciting, I have been competing now for 17 years and last year was my first national championship,” Jupp said. “It took me a long time, it’s not easy to get.” Jupp rode to her championship on her horse Papa Rhazi. “This year was the first time I rode Papa Rhazi at US Nationals. It was a big challenge to make sure I was fit enough to ride him because he’s a very

This August, Jupp was also the unanimous national champion at the 2013 Canadian Nationals Arabian and Half-Arabian Championship Show, defending her 2012 win. In Canada, they play a song for the winning horse and Jupp was thrilled to hear Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” when they announced her name as the winner. Jupp, 49, didn’t become serious about competitive riding until her early 30s. It started when a friend of hers owned an Arabian she was too busy to ride so she asked Jupp to help work the horse. “The horse was stabled at a show barn so I got to see the high caliber of the horses and I was very intrigued,” Jupp said. “I was interested in the challenge of getting better at my riding and riding these incredible show horses.” She started working with a show horse and as she got more into it she found she really liked the competitions and wanted to go into a higher level. She invested in great talent at the horse and trainer level and now owns four Half-Arabians and Arabian horses, including the “somewhat famous” stallion named Mamage that she breeds. Her horses are stabled in Somis in Ventura County where she travels to ride and train. She rides and drives in the English pleasure saddle seat style. “It’s important to be there with a really good trainer, it’s a style of riding very different from hunter-jumper and dressage styles that are primarily done in the San Diego area,” Jupp said. The 2013 season is over now and Jupp’s next big show will be in Scottsdale in February. She will focus on her breeding business and selling Mamage’s offspring. Papa Rhazi may get a rest from competing as well — Jupp may opt to show some of her younger horses this coming year in an effort to not overshow Papa. For now she is enjoying her wins, the result of all of her hard work and commitment. “It really is my passion for sure,” Jupp said.

In addition to riding, Jupp prepared for nationals with twice-a-week weight training sessions, Pilates twice a week, and interval training another two times a week. “Papa Rhazi is an older horse so I felt really good about our accomplishment because I achieved my personal goal of being fit enough and he did well considering his age,” Jupp said. The winning horse gets draped in a big rose blanket and Jupp received a trophy, vest and small cash price.

TPHS graduate launches new health and fitness tool BY KRISTINA HOUCK Captain of the springboard diving team, local native Nic Bartolotta’s diving career almost came to an end as a sophomore at UC Berkeley. At just 18 years old, the cartilage on the outside of his left knee had been destroyed. Doctors told him there was nothing they could do, Bartolotta said, and that he would need knee replacement surgery later in life. “It was very disheartening,� said Bartolotta, who graduated from Torrey Pines High School in 1999. “But I didn’t give up.� From sports massage to yoga, Bartolotta tried a variety of alternative methods. But nothing worked until he discovered resistance stretching. A family friend introduced Bartolotta to flexibility coach Bob Cooley. Using Cooley’s resistance stretching technique, Bartolotta worked with him three to five hours a day for two months. Bartolotta went on to compete nationally and internationally. Although he didn’t make the Olympic 2004 trials, he discovered another passion: physical therapy. “From having to figure out how to fix my knee injury, I got very interested in the therapeutic process,� Bartolotta said. “It just peaked my curiously, and I started studying and learning more about the body and was able to take all my studies and create my own system.� After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in rhetoric, he earned his holistic health license from the International Professional School of Bodywork in San Diego, and in 2011, received his master’s in physical therapy from California State University, Long Beach. Throughout his education, Bartolotta used Cooley’s technique and developed a new system called Dynamic Contraction Technique (DCT), a blend of resistance stretching and strength training that incorporates principles from

TPHS graduate Nic Bartolotta invented the DCT ProFlex, a health and fitness tool. Courtesy photo western biomechanics and eastern holistic modalities. As co-founder and CEO of Harmonix Health, Bartolotta uses DCT as a physical therapist to clients in Los Angeles and San Diego. In addition to developing his own therapy system, Bartolotta invented DCT ProFlex, a health and fitness tool DCT followers could use. “I became an inventor out of the need that I saw,� said Bartolotta, who developed the device while he was still in graduate school.

Until now, only Bartolotta and other DCT practitioners have been able to use and teach with the DCT ProFlex. Bartolotta is now bringing the patented product to market. To launch the health and fitness tool, Harmonix Health started an Indiegogo campaign on Sept. 24.

Through the online funding platform, Bartolotta hopes to raise $30,000 by Nov. 23. As of Nov. 8, 140 people have contributed $25,833 toward the project. “We want to launch and sell the product, but the real purpose or mission behind doing a crowd funding campaign is to raise awareness and show people that there’s another option and there are tools out there that can help them,� said Bartolotta, who currently lives with his wife in Venice Beach. Made up of a footpad and straps, the DCT ProFlex, along with DCT exercises, is designed to help strengthen and lengthen lower leg and foot muscles, and balance tension to restore proper biomechanical alignment and function to the feet, ankles and lower leg. “As a physical therapist, if I don’t have the DCT ProFlex with me, I literally feel like I have one hand tied behind my back,� Bartolotta said. When doctors told him he had a career-ending injury, Bartolotta discovered resistance stretching. He hopes the DCT ProFlex is the solution others need. One day, Bartolotta said, he envisions the product in every physical therapy clinic, athletic training center and fitness center in the country. “The product is really designed for anybody who likes to be active, and it’s also for people who have foot, ankle or knee problems,� Bartolotta said. “It’s both a corrective exercise tool and a rehabilitative tool. “There are definitely people out there — if they know about it — who can benefit from it.� For more information about Harmonix Health, visit For more information about the campaign, visit http://

Torrey Hills Robotics students with teacher Uma Krishnan.

Torrey Hills Robotics teams shine at tournament Torrey Hills Robotics teams competed in a Qualifying Tournament at High Tech High in Point Loma on Nov. 3. Students in six teams, participated in the First Lego League challenge, building and programing robots. This year the topic for the challenge is Nature’s Fury — all natural calamities caused by nature. Students researched topics such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, avalanches and volcanoes and they visited the fire station to talk with first responders, and had a Skype conversation. Each team came up with an innovative solution to help in disasters. Though the teams did not qualify they did impress the judges and won in four categories: 1st Place in Core Values; 1st Place in Project Award (Presentation); 2nd Place in Project Award (Innovative solution); and 2nd Place in Robot Design.

Carmel Valley Ninja Builders advance to First Lego League Southern California Championship A team of seven fifth graders from Carmel Valley finished second in the First Lego League (FLL) Qualifying Tournament on Nov. 3 at High Tech High School. The Ninja Builders — John Aste, Christopher Caligiuri, Sean Cooney, Mason Holst, Woocheol Kim, Nathanael Tran and Nathan Wu — competed against teams from San Diego County in this year’s FLL Challenge. The FLL Challenge is a three-part competition. The first part is a project requiring the team to identify problems faced by a community after a natural disaster and create innovative solutions. The second part is a robot challenge requiring the teams to build and program an autonomous robot to complete rescue and safety missions after a natural disaster using a Lego playing surface. The third part is to demonstrate core values emphasizing teamwork, cooperation, gracious professionalism and friendly competition. The Ninja Builders, sponsored by ViaSat, now advance to the FLL Southern California Championship at Legoland.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

Our Commons At the request of the Del Mar City Council, our city staff has assembled a comprehensive amount of information on our city’s facilities needs with the intent of selecting a replacement site for our derelict City Hall. There are only two options: build on the cityowned site at 1050 Camino Del Mar or purchase an unspecified existing commercial building offsite. This leads to a reflection on what the Camino Del Mar site represents for our community. The site is at the present time the location of our administrative offices and the TV studio, seat of our City Council. Built in 1984, the studio also provides the Council with a recently remodeled meeting room for its closed sessions. Only the administrative building is in urgent need of replacement. What has gone unmentioned is an analysis of the many other, transient activities which take place on the Camino Del Mar site. These activities actually make of the site the modern equivalent of the medieval “commons.” Old village communities in England used the word “commons” to characterize lands held in common, thrown open to members of the community for their temporary private uses: at that time sheep grazing, feed for cattle, wood for repairs. Today, as in the medieval commons, the land belongs to one entity, our City, but other entities can use it temporarily for their profit. In the past, the library held annual fundraisers to benefit the County Library. Today the Farmers Market board operates a market which profits the merchants selling their produce and benefits the members of our community. Coast Waste management holds collection events for recyclables. We hold meetings of civic groups. We park our cars there for free. It is our “commons.” By purchasing an existing commercial building all these functions would be orphaned. We would buy land when we already have much vacant land that we own in full. We would vacate a lot in the middle of our City with an uncertain development future. Chances are very good that the site will remain vacant for a very long time as the Jefferson and Gas Station lots are. The Council has now forwarded the City Hall matter to the Finance Committee. No doubt the Finance Committee will let us know the price of everything but perhaps not the value of the property. Jacqueline Winterer Del Mar


Solana Beach is a great place to live due — in large part — to wise leadership The Solana Beach City Council did the right thing when they voted unanimously to proceed with a special election for the Party Policy Initiative that is scheduled for Feb. 11. Here is what is at stake in the upcoming election. Will we retain the Council’s amendable use policy for the Fletcher Cove Community Center (FCCC) or will we be saddled with a new, more intense Party Policy that can only be changed by holding yet another election? The cost of this election rests solely on the shoulders of the Party Policy Initiative sponsors. It is not a requirement to ask for a special election on an initiative petition but the sponsors of the Party Policy Initiative specifically requested a “special” election on their petitions. Next they gathered enough signatures to trigger this special election. Then they knowingly submitted their signed petitions early enough to trigger this costly “special” election. Once it became obvious that the Initiative sponsors had created a costly mess for the taxpayers, they tried to use the cost of the election as leverage to force the City Council to adopt their super maxed out Party Policy. Wisely the City Council voted to let the democratic process play out. Many of the people who signed the petition are now kicking themselves since learning the full implications of the Initiative. Voters have already received slick campaign mailers and eBlasts from the privately funded Initiative group. And because the Party Policy group has a local financial backer footing all their bills, they can afford to hire consultants, lawyers and send out expensive mailers from now until Election Day. Just remember that these are the same people that didn’t tell us the whole story when they were gathering signatures for their petitions. Can we really trust them now? Please make sure you learn all the facts before the Feb. 11 election. This Council and future Councils must have the authority to regulate their own policies in order to properly operate the City and provide for public safety. The existing City compromise policy is in accordance with City codes for regulating parking, alcohol and noise, while the Party Policy Initiative will override these City codes by creating exceptions. Most importantly the City policy can be easily amended. The Party Policy Initiative will be set in stone and cannot be amended with another election. Solana Beach is a wonderful place to live in large part because of the wise leadership of our Council. We can trust them to assure there is a policy at the FCCC that will continue to benefit the entire community. Please support our Council by voting “No” on the Party Policy Initiative on Feb. 11.

week and is just now undergoing an initial review by staff. Because the application has just been filed, there have not yet been any public hearings nor any review or action by the Planning Commission or the City Council. All aspects of the proposal will be subject to numerous noticed public hearings. This includes any legislative proposals to apply a new land use designation or development standards to the property and to review of a project itself. This process will allow the community to weigh the potential benefits of the project as well as any potential adverse impacts. The City Council will review all of the information provided to make a determination on whether the project is appropriate for the community. The project is also subject to Del Mar’s design review process, including the City’s Citizen Participation Program. This will further ensure multiple opportunities for neighbors and other interested parties to review and provide com-

ment on the project’s design. The proposal will also undergo a thorough environmental review, most likely an Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The EIR process also provides numerous opportunities for public input. Because we anticipate a lot of interest in this project, the City will provide a space on the Del Mar website for receipt and posting of comments. The Council and staff look forward to hearing from the public so that complete information can be considered as the proposal moves through the multiple review processes. I hope this is helpful and will give your readers some assurance that the process is in place to thoroughly review the proposal and to seek community input. Our City Council, Planning Commission, and Design Review Board will work hard to achieve a positive project outcome for Del Mar. Terry Sinnott Mayor

Great community forum on the harms of marijuana use

JON CLARK Photographer DON PARKS Chief Revenue Officer/General Manager

I attended the harmful effects of marijuana forum for community members on Nov. 6 at Canyon Crest Academy that was announced in this newspaper, “The Truth About Weed — What Every Parent Needs To Know” community seminar. About 200 parents, attended including about 20 teenage boys; I thought it interesting that there weren’t any daughters brought by their parents, just sons. Not knowing what to expect I was very impressed with the presentations and information presented on how marijuana negatively affects the adolescent brain. The presenters provided a review of how marijuana use among teens is increasing, and its perception of harm is decreasing. We learned from the California Health Kids Survey that our local students are reporting obtaining marijuana is as easy or easier than getting alcohol. We were instructed on what students are doing to hide their marijuana use on campus and at home, new lingo, emerging trends, and just how easy it is get drugs on the internet. A real eye opener to me was the use of marijuana on campus is increasing, one reason being the use of electronic pipes that vaporize marijuana, making it harder to detect. Additionally, good documentation was given about the negative affects marijuana has on academics, driving, job training, and its gateway to abuse of other harmful and dangerous substances. Dr. Mary Doyle, a UCSD neuroscientist, ended the night by explaining how the human brain continues to develop until our mid-20s. She described the three times in the developing child when the brain is especially vulnerable to damage, pre natal, 0-3 years old,

and during adolescence. Dr. Doyle showed the links between the onset of schizophrenia and marijuana use at critical maturational junctures in adolescence, and much more. The parents asked many questions; as someone who works in the public health field, I felt I wanted to add to the answers given regarding the data that alcohol use during adolescence increases the chance of alcohol addiction, which is true. The relationship between alcohol and marijuana use during adolescent and the college years is of great concern and receiving a great deal of research, with the speculation that marijuana use was replacing alcohol use. As it turns out marijuana and alcohol use in young adults is co-occurring behavior not mutually exclusive, in other words, where there is increased marijuana use in college, researchers also find increased alcohol use. And both are contributing to what is euphemistically called “discontinuous” enrollment in college, with marijuana having a slightly higher culpability in this inference with schooling. Researchers have suggested the marijuana and alcohol are used at different times by college students, alcohol on weekends and marijuana during the school week and that this might contribute to marijuana’s role in the interruption in college progress. I appreciated the forum; it was a great service to our community to help keep us all more informed so that we can keep our teens safe, healthy, and productive. Melvin Chang Carmel Valley

the aid of their communities

In the 1950s, the coastal communities of San Diego faced a threat to their survival that was not economic or environmental, but bureaucratic. It came from Sacramento, where transit planners announced their decision to “expand” historic Highway 101 into a new interstate highway – a transit “solution,” driven by federal dollars, lack of imagination by Caltrans, and a severe want of political will by local politicians. Imagine our coastline today if ordinary citizens had not risen up to stop this plan: instead of historic Highway 101 and iconic beach towns, we would have had I-5 on the beach, literally, and economic and environmental disaster. Today, the coastal communities are again faced with a threat, and this time it comes from our own County planning agency, SANDAG, run by bureaucrats and their cronies who have billions of dollars of tax dollars to spend, but a lack of imagination on how to use those billions wisely. Like Caltrans bureaucrats in the 1950s, SANDAG now wants to deface and, in the case of Del Mar, fiscally bankrupt our coastal towns and their signature natural beauty by continuing to expand a heavy diesel railroad through the heart of our towns and fragile coastal lagoons. Sadly, today we also see our local politicians, for the most part, either remaining silent, or worse, selling us out by voting for this plan in exchange for small change from SANDAG to pay for little local projects. These are deals with the devil. Last week, this paper reported on a meeting conducted by SANDAG in Del Mar, during which the citizens actually demanded accountability from the bureaucrats and politicians. For the sake of future generations, I hope that more and more ordinary citizens will show up and speak out at their local city council meetings and demand action to stand up to SANDAG’s defective plan to push more and more harmful diesel railroad projects on our communities. There are much better alternatives, ones that cost far less, do no harm to our coastline, and will actually provide transit solutions to the broader community, but we must act now.

Should have stuck with ‘the best health care system in the world’ We (taxpayers) have already, and will, spend millions of dollars to improve (correct) our (failed) health care system through passage of the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare). Some thought our old health care system was failed because everyone didn’t have health care insurance (even though everyone got the best health care in the world). Well, the old system meant everyone could buy whatever medical insurance they wanted and could afford, or if they didn’t want to buy insurance and couldn’t afford to pay for their medical care, they would go to the emergency room to get the best care in the world, and we would all pay for that care. From what I’ve heard, it would be a whole lot cheaper, and we would all have a whole lot more freedom, if we had stuck with the best health care system in the world, as described above.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion The Soul of Solana Beach In the 30-plus years that I’ve lived in Solana Beach I never seen such a trivial issue receive so much attention. Yep, I’m referring to the Fletcher Cove Community Center Party Policy Initiative scheduled to be voted on at a special election on Feb. 11. The Initiative’s sponsors will try to argue otherwise but make no mistake — they forced this costly special election on the city. So let’s back up for a minute. I think we can all agree that Solana Beach has never looked better, is well managed and is fiscally sound. Highway 101 has been revitalized, our property values are going up and new businesses are moving into town. Over the last decade Solana Beach has become the envy of the region. The success of our City is directly linked to the leadership on our city council. We are very fortunate to have five highly educated council members who are dedicated to moving the city forward and preserving community character. Let’s face it; they are more than capable of developing a reasonable policy to run a 1,000-squarefoot community center. In August 2013, the City Council developed a use-policy for the community center and it is now available to rent for private parties on weekends. The City Council made it clear that the policy was a starting point and that it will be reviewed and modified as needed between now and December 2014. End of story? Nope. A small group, backed up by big bucks, refused to accept the City’s compromise policy. Instead they insisted the council replace it with their own maxed out policy or they would force a special election. So here we are faced with the expensive special election forced on us by the Initiative group. Let’s be clear, the current brouhaha is not all about a party policy. It is more about the politics being used to discredit our city council. And it reeks of what is going on in Washington D.C. What we are witnessing is a group of political vultures trying to gain power and control over the council. Their goal is to change the direction our City is headed in by using as much money as it takes to influence the upcoming February special election and future elections. Sadly, to gain speed for their end game, they have aligned themselves with a group of well-meaning individuals who are emotionally attached to the community center issue and they are using them as pawns. This election is not just about a party policy; it is about the soul of our city. Support your City Council and Vote No in the February election. Ira Opper Solana Beach

Process designed for major issues, not ‘political football’ After reading some of the editorials regarding the [Fletcher Cove Community Center], I felt compelled to respond. If someone asked you what are the top 10 or top 100 issues facing Solana Beach, where would have this issue fallen? Without prompting, it would not make my top 100 issues. This is a “nice to have,” not a “need to have.” Definitely not one worthy of a $250,000 special election! Then why all the angst? There must be more behind this issue than the issue itself. It seems like this group has an ax to grind with the City Council. Are there any losers from the last Council election in this group? I have no affiliation with the Council so I am a neutral observer. They knew exactly what they were doing when they started the petition process. They had more flexible options that they could have pursued, but they chose the one that would force the special election if the Council did not adopt their policy. They had a choice on their strategy, weapons or negotiation. They chose weapons! I was asked to sign the petition and naively signed it not knowing about the “take it or leave” strategy of the petition process. It definitely was not disclosed on the pamphlet that “explained” the issue. The donated money was prominently displayed, which highlighted that this was a waste of money since it was not being used more which I agreed with, but nowhere was the fact this could result in a $250,000 special election. Intentional non-disclosure of a material fact is deceitful. If it was in the small print, then I did not notice it plus it should be disclosed as prominently as the other “facts.” This is an example of citizens abusing a process that was designed for major issues, not political football. It reminds me of the nonsense that is going on in Congress right now where they are willing to shut down the government for ideological purposes. “Let’s destroy the government and the economy if they don’t do what we want.” Shameful! Ed Creed Solana Beach

Council-commissioned report comes to the rescue of Fletcher Cove Most readers already know that, pursuant to the Elections Code, the Solana Beach City Council commissioned an outside report on “... the effect of the proposed Initiative measure” titled “Community Access to and Use of Fletcher Cove Community Center.” The completed report was received by the Council during its meeting Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013. However, the findings of this report by the law firm of Lounsbery Ferguson Altona & Peak were neither discussed nor referenced by the Council at that time. The report concludes that “... based on the documents and analysis included in this Report, there are not expected to be adverse impacts to the City’s General and Specific Plans, zoning, land use, housing, funding for infrastructure, schools, parks, traffic, parking, open space ...” (underlines added. See Report Section D., Conclusion, p. 11) The report goes on to say: “The Initiative would be internally consistent with the General Plan and the Highway 101 Corridor Specific Plan.” (C.2.a, p. 5) “The City has tools to prevent adverse impacts from events at the FCCC. A special event permit can be denied if an applicant does not adequately provide safety measures for noise, as determined by the City Manager in his sole discretion.” (C.3.a, p.6) “Any Special Use Permit issued for the FCCC for resident-hosted events must be approved by the City Manager. The City Manager must consider ‘the disruption to public transit and traffic flow’ and the application may be denied if it ‘has not adequately provided for safety measures including, but not limited to: traffic, crowd control, noise, parking, and sanitation facilities.’ “ (C.4.c, p. 8). While my earlier letters to the editor proposed that post-Initiative regulation of FCCC usage, if needed, could be achieved through changes to those Municipal Code sections that are incorporated by reference in the Initiative, the Council’s chosen law firm pointed out a much simpler way: the permit process. In view of this, I hope these legal findings will ease the minds of the nearby residents and the Council who fear that they are being strait-jacketed if the Initiative passes in the forthcoming special election. As for costs, the report notes

that the cost of the special election is about 5 percent of the undesignated General Fund reserves (C.1.a, p 4). The report is on the City website as City Council Action Agenda of Nov. 6, 2013, Staff Reports Item C.1, Updated Report #1, attachment 1. Richard Moore Solana Beach

Playing Fair Watching the Tea Party activists at work I worry about the future of our nat i o n a l governm e n t . Their tactics, much like the J o h n Birchers of BUD EMERSON yesteryear, Del Mar are based on an assumption that government is the enemy. Ironically, they seem to consider themselves to be patriotic even as they rail against the legitimacy of our democratically elected leaders. Much of their rhetoric is ad hominem, often focused on our black President but personal attacks on other elected and appointed officials are also fair game. A favorite ploy of these teabaggers is a technique called “the big lie.” They make something up out of whole cloth, repeat it endlessly, until it works its way into public conversation as truth. Think Kenya, Muslim, Obamacare. I hope we can be careful in our community conversations that we do not descend to the depths of political discussion now degrading our national government. Recent commentaries suggest that many state and city governments are effectively resisting this dysfunctionality by working across party lines to reach common sense compromises to get things done. Del Mar has a rich tradition of citizen involvement, often with very spirited debate, but when we are at our best the “Del Mar Way” finds community consensus that allows us to actually get things done. Think open space, lagoon restoration, beach encroachment, library, Garden project. When we try to short circuit the consensus-reach-

ing process we frustrate our ability to get things done. Think downtown redevelopment, pedestrianization, visitor fair share taxation, traffic calming. Whether we achieve certain goals or not, there are some underlying principles of civic engagement that enable us to keep bound together as a community. One is that we respect the motives and hard work of citizen volunteers who occupy Council seats and appointees on other decision-making bodies. These folks are our neighbors, not some distant uncaring and unresponsive entity. This principle applies equally to the conscientious city staff who use their expertise and commitment to help us achieve community goals. Some criticism of current and recent Council members questions their legitimacy because they faced no campaign opposition when they ran for office. Instead of criticism we should express gratitude that they stepped up when others did not to do a job that is very demanding in this town. Another important principle concerns facts and truths. It is easy to arouse emotions and fears if one decides to play fast and loose with facts, but the damage to our common bonds is long lasting. Honest, open debate on the merits of issues enlightens our decisions. Fact distortion, exaggerations, and personal attacks are the basic tools of demagoguery that cheapen our discussions and degrade our decisions. Washington’s dysfunctionalities are powerful examples of what not to do. Ironically, Del Mar can learn from those examples what we do not want to become. This community has too much going for it to descend to that level. Bud Emerson Del Mar

SANDAG to hold meeting on Sorrento Valley Double Track project The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) will hold an informational open house on Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 4-6 p.m. about the Sorrento Valley Double Track project. The Sorrento Valley Double Track project involves building 1.1 miles of second mainline track to the north from the Sorrento Valley Station. Portions of the existing track bed will be raised as much as 5 feet, placing it above the 50-year flood level. In addition, two wooden trestle bridges, originally built in the 1940s, will be replaced. Retaining walls will be built adjacent to the tracks near the parking lots. An embankment protection system also will be installed along the westerly side of the track, adjacent to Los Peñasquitos Creek. A new 83-space surface parking lot will be added to the south of the station, across Sorrento Valley Boulevard. At the end of construction, there will be 192 parking spaces to serve transit riders, a net increase of 71 spaces. The meeting will be held at Torrey Hills Elementary School, Multi-Purpose Room, 10830 Calle Mar De Mariposa, San Diego, CA 92130;

Local resident is a pioneer in cardiovascular health BY KRISTINA HOUCK Cardiologist Dr. Richard Schatz has helped saved countless lives — many who aren’t his patients. Along with Dr. Julio Palmaz, Schatz co-invented the first successful coronary stent. The tiny wire-mesh, balloon expandable tubes are now used in 2 million patients annually to repair clogged arteries near the heart and elsewhere in the body. “It’s the most durable medical device,” said Schatz, a local resident who started his practice in 1982 and joined Scripps Clinic in 1990. “It spans the globe.” Using a balloon at the end of a catheter to open up a plaque-filled artery, Dr. Andreas Gruentzig performed the first coronary angioplasty in 1977. In 1980, vascular radiologist Palmaz developed the concept of a metal sleeve that could be placed on top of the balloon, carried to the target and deployed by balloon expansion to support the walls of the artery and prevent collapse. But he needed funding. “He had this brilliant idea of putting a piece of metal inside blood vessels to keep them open,” said Schatz, who was then a cardiologist at Brooke Army Medical Center. “He had done a lot of very good work on it. His concept was so clever, I knew it could be adapted to the coronaries.” Schatz began working with Palmaz in 1985 to create an expandable stent and obtain funding. In 1987, the first patient successfully received a Palmaz-Schatz stent in Brazil. The pair patented their stent in 1988 as Johnson & Johnson licensed and invested in its development. In 1991, the Food and

Dr. Richard Schatz Drug Administration approved it for use in peripheral arteries. In 1994, the stent was approved for use in the coronaries. More than two decades later, millions of stents are still being used every year. “It’s hard to believe it’s been so long,” said Schatz, who noted Intellectual Property magazine named the Palmaz-Schatz stent one of 10 patents that changed the world. “A day doesn’t go by that I don’t think about it because we still use them. The stent has been an extraordinary contribution in its longevity and durability. Very few devices last that long. Nothing’s replaced it.” A New York native, Schatz wanted to be an NFL quarterback. He played football, baseball, track and field, and other sports in high school. He was also a trained gymnast. His mother knew both her sons would be doctors. And she was right. Schatz’s older brother became a general surgeon. While at Duke University School of Medicine, Schatz decided to be a cardiologist. “I was always fascinated with the heart — the anatomy, the physiology, the clin-

CV resident leads non-profit that provides sports programs for children and adults with physical disabilities BY KAREN BILLING Carmel Valley resident Jon Richards strongly believes in one’s ability to adapt and the importance in everyone being included. Richards is the executive director of the local non-profit the Adaptive Sports and Recreation Association (ASRA), which provides programs for children and adults with physical disabilities in San Diego — allowing them the chance to be inspired, empowered and thrive through sports. “I grew up playing sports and being very active so this was my opportunity to give back,” said Richards, who has been with ASRA for three and a half years, coming from the Special Olympics organization. “I saw that there was a group of people who weren’t given the same opportunities that I had and it become a passion of mine.” ASRA was founded in 2006 with a variety of yearround leagues, camps and clinics serving over 300 athletes. ASRA recently underwent a re-branding and were formerly known as the San Diego Adaptive Sports Foundation. In 2006, ASRA broke off as a non-profit from the city’s parks and recreation department so some of the programs it runs are 27 years old, taken over from the city. Richards said ASRA still works closely with the city and it co-sponsors some activities. ASRA has only three staff members and relies heavily on its volunteers — about 700 people give their time to ASRA. Richards said ASRA is unique in that participants as young as 4 years old can join and there is no upper age limit. ASRA offers wheelchair basketball, rugby, soc-

cer, adaptive cycling and it recently started a paratriathlon program. The most popular sport ASRA runs is wheelchair basketball. ASRA has 10 teams in San Diego, with players from all over the county in different levels and skills. ASRA helps players by providing specialized sports chairs that are different from ADA- compliant chairs. These specialized chairs can run $2,500 to $3,500 and athletes can outgrow them as they get older, like shoes. “We provide equipment for them to get excited and to be able to participate immediately,” Richards said. Once an athlete continues on or gets more serious about a sport they may opt to get their own chairs. ASRA also works with the local population of injured service members and has done special programs and clinics with them. Recently they teamed up with the U.S. Paralympics team and did a military sports camp at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista. Since 1987, ASRA has run a very popular five-day Junior Wheelchair Sports Camp that people travel from all over the country to attend. The camp has about 70 campers ages 4-18 and they get to play and participate in all kinds of sports and activities. They play sports such as rugby, tennis, and golf, and get to go snorkeling, swimming and kayaking

in Mission Bay. Richards and ASRA believe that they can offer an adaptation for every activity, the fun part is figuring it out, customizing things to each individual’s needs. “Sometimes it’s just being creative,” Richards said. “The most important thing with it is that you’re creating the least restrictive environment, that they’re still able to put in the effort. You don’t want to overcompensate because you want them to have as much of the experience as they can have.” The coolest experience for Richards is seeing someone get involved for the first time, whether they’re 4 or a

Del Mar artist selected for membership in National Association of Women Artists, Inc.

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY DIANE Y. WELCH The National Association of Women Artists, Inc. (NAWA) has selected Del Mar fine artist Karla Leopold to be inducted into its historic membership on Nov. 21 in New York. The piece that brought Leopold to the attention of the jurors is titled “Vanishing Cliffs” and is one of a series of plein air pastel and watercolor landscapes that she has created close to her home in Del Mar. The artwork, along with that of other new members, will hang in the NAWA Gallery on Fifth Ave. in Manhattan until the end of the month. “It’s such a big honor to be selected,” said Leopold, who will attend the late afternoon induction reception with her daughter Keegan Leopold Nordan. “The more I find out about the organization the more thrilled I am.” Established in 1889, the NAWA was the first professional women’s art organization in the U.S. It was founded by five women artists who were barred from full participation in the male-dominated Society of American Artists. Originally

named the Women’s Art Club, the organization was renamed the National Association of Women Artists in 1941. As a member Leopold joins the noble ranks of such famed artists as Mary Cassatt and Alice Neel. The documentation of the exhibit will be archived within the Smithsonian Institution, the Library of Congress, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and more. “Some day my great, great grandchildren could visit the Smithsonian and see proof of my artwork,” Leopold said. Leopold submitted three pieces selected from her recent body of work that captures the local disappearing landscape. Her favored locations include local beaches and the mountains. Notably, the coastal sandstone cliffs have visibly disappeared since Leopold started this engagement a year-anda-half ago. Jurors chose a piece for the exhibition that depicts the Del Mar bluffs. Another benefit of membership in NAWA is the eligibility to submit work to other prestigious national shows, said Leopold, who has been invited to exhibit at the Robeson Gallery at Penn State University. She is submitting pieces from her “Visions of the Mind” series; one will be chosen for the gallery. The series includes a piece crafted from a knitted hat that has derogatory words for mental sickness spilling out of it – which represents the destructive verbiage often used to describe those who are mentally ill – and a piece created around an image that a child had given her through Leopold’s work done during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Leopold is also a licensed art therapist and a marriage and family child therapist,

although she is not currently practicing. While active in the field of therapy her specialty was to work with children of trauma. Leopold aided child victims of Katrina for three years and recognizes that one of her roles is to bring darkness to light. Creating art after trauma is one way to help children cope with post-trauma stresses and serves to bring lightness into their lives, she said. Leopold’s own art embraces all her creative engagements, whether it be her textiles, her pastels, her paintings, her sculptures or her assemblages. Rather than focus on one aspect of art she dances through many types of creative expression and her work covers a broad spectrum. “Some people think that art should be more focused or one complete body of work but I don’t know that that works for me,” said Leopold, who told how she said to her husband, “You know I think I need to do just one thing.” To which he replied, “I’ve known you almost your whole life, Karla, and you are never happy just doing one thing!” For now Leopold is immersed in her plein air landscapes. The work is refreshing and helps lighten her up, she said. “I am also fascinated with all the changes that take place around us. It is my way of documenting Mother Nature in her glory as she formulates how to adjust to environmental transformations.” Visit to find out more about Leopold’s work.

Golfers’ share tasty secret: the Lodge’s pub-style Grill BY KELLEY CARLSON t seems like there’s always something brewing at The Grill at The Lodge at Torrey Pines. From special nightly beer-and-food pairings to quarterly dinners and other events, Chef Daniel Boling is constantly concocting couplings for the best possible enhancement of flavors, often turning to local companies for inspiration and ingredients. “There are not too many restaurants like us devoted to beer,” he said. Boling works within the restaurant’s retro Americana concept to create his menu, setting it apart from the neighboring higher-end counterpart, A.R. Valentien. But while The Grill is casual, it still offers fine dining quality and service. “This is one of those places where you can come in wearing shorts and sandals and still feel comfortable,” Boling said. It’s an idyllic spot to leisurely watch the sunset, perhaps while sipping a cocktail. The patio, which is adjacent to the practice putting green and starter’s clubhouse of the golf course, provides a panoramic view of the expansive lawn. As the weather turns chilly, people pull up chairs by the fire pit. From 6 to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, a local musician plays everything from classic pieces to tunes by The Beatles. Patrons are welcome to dine in the bar, where they can watch sporting events on TVs and admire a moose-head sculpture. The main dining room’s setting is rustic with wood accents — a tribute to the early 1900s California Craftsman Movement —

and picturesque paintings add touches of color. An open kitchen with bar-style seating promotes customer-staff relationships. Customers are treated to farm-to-table fare, much of it served family-style. The experience begins with complimentary house-made potato chips and a three-onion dip for those who dine after 5 p.m., although the appetizer can be specially requested at lunch time. The Grill is known for its burgers. One specialty patty is the Drugstore Style Hamburger with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle and mayo on a sesame-seed bun. But the restaurant is also renowned for its craft brew selection, which Boling pairs nightly with entrees made from fresh ingredients. One pairing example is the Steamed Mussels, enjoyed with Orange Avenue Wit

A seasonal version of the mussels includes bacon, roasted Brussels sprouts and butternut squash in a broth of Orange Avenue Wit, which is light like Hefeweizen, and topped with toast slices fried in bacon butter. Another combination is the signature Brook Trout Amandine with New English Brewing Co.’s Special Brown Ale. The trout is dressed with brown butter, lemon and almonds, and rests on a bed of fingerling potatoes and green beans. The ale is dark (due to the roasting of malts) and isn’t overly heavy. Then there’s the New York Strip, a play on steak frites. The certified steak’s slices are in a creamy peppercorn sauce, and flanked by fingerling potatoes fried in duck fat and


arugula salad with sherry vinegar. To accompany the meat, there’s the rich Hangar 24 Chocolate Porter, and the Ale Smith Grand Cru, a well-balanced heavy beer with 10 percent alcohol that has been aged in old cabernet barrels and therefore has a bit of red wine characteristics. Quarterly beer dinners are also on tap, in which The Grill “buddies up” with local microbreweries to present a four-course meal, each with a different kind of ale. The cost is $75; reservations are required. A family-friendly “beer” beverage is Henry Weinhard’s Root Beer Float with vanilla bean ice cream. Those who arrive at The Grill early in the day are treated to fare such as French toast, egg dishes, pancakes, waffles, fruits and cereals. Soups, sandwiches and salads comprise the majority of the lunch menu.

CCA student spearheads ‘Bookfair’ at Barnes & Noble to benefit book club students at downtown school •Bookfair to be held Nov. 16-23 at Del Mar Highlands’ Barnes & Noble By Karen Billing The Del Mar Highlands Barnes & Noble will host a “Bookfair” Nov. 16-23 in which a portion of the proceeds on any purchase will go toward a girls book club at Nativity Prep Academy started by Canyon Crest Academy sophomore Emma Halpern. Halpern, a Carmel Valley resident, started the book club four years ago as part of her service project for her Bat Mitzvah. She was connected with Nativity Prep through the community service resource center at her then-school La Jolla Country Day. Nativity Prep provides a college preparatory education for students from lowincome families who will be the first to graduate from college. The school is located in downtown San Diego. “Sometimes people put less time into their Bat Mitzvah projects as time goes on, but I decided to keep it going, the girls and I wanted to keep at it,” Emma said. “We are very grateful to Emma for sharing her passion for reading with our students and for this more

Emma also tries to incorporate a project into each meeting. For a book they read called “The Adoration of Jenna Fox,” which dealt with a young girl being recreated out of bio-gel after an accident, Emma had the club members draw a picture of how they would look if they were made of biogel and what their new personality traits would be. Even though all this sounds like the humble beginnings of a career in education, Emma insists that is not her goal. While she loves working with children, she would like to be a neurosurgeon.

(L-R) Glamorous hospitality witches: Dana Mueller, Lisa Pedersen and Carolyn Hickey. Hundreds of bags of much-needed food were assembled by Chapter volunteers.

NCL San Diego Del Norte Spellbinding Meeting The San Diego Del Norte Chapter was up to fun again at a recent Patroness meeting with a Halloween theme. October’s mood was quite bewitching with the hospitality team really getting into the spooky mood. It wasn’t all fun and games though. The meeting, which was attended by over 80 Patronesses from Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, Solana Beach and Carmel Valley was a collection point for canned foods collected and donated by the NCL members. After a successful month-long Canned Food Drive, the Chapter was able to collect and donate over 12,000 cans of much-needed food supplies. The meeting also included a compelling presentation from a HAND UP Youth Food Pantry volunteer who shared how important the Chapter’s food donations are to those in need in San Diego. The HAND UP Youth Food Pantry provides supplemental food to military families, homeless people, older adults, pregnant and parenting teens, and low-income families at eight locations across 40 miles of San Diego County. In the last year the Hand Up Youth Food Pantry provided more than 350,00 pounds of food to over 8,500 people. Hand Up teen leaders tackle the issue of hunger by coordinating food drives and fundraisers, managing volunteers at Hand Up food distribution sites and in their food pantry, and engaging in hunger advocacy. Together, Hand Up teens coordinated 30 food drives, secured 10,000-plus pounds of donated food, and raised more than $8,800 to support the Hand Up Youth Food Pantry last year.

The Ticktockers dressed in costumes, served cookies and snacks, raffled prizes and held a dance and costume contest for the seniors. National Charity League, Inc. is a mother-daughter organization dedicated to serving the communities in which chapters are formed and to fostering the mother-daughter relationship. NCL’s goal is to promote a sense of community responsibility in daughters and strengthen the mother-daughter relationship.

Patriot Profiles: ‘You never know what to expect’

This column presents “Patriot Profiles” to provide readers insight into the lives of our country’s heroes. By Jeanne McKinney Navy corpsmen form a brotherhood and sisterhood of medical providers revered by members of the Navy and Marine Corps. The infamous call, “Corpsmen up,” means a professional — in every sense — is coming to help. HMC Tarren C. Windham has earned her place in the Navy corpsman legacy, one rich with stories of valor. Whether she’s nursing someone’s cold or scrambling to save those with terrible wounds, Windham says, “There’s an adventure in every single day. You never know what to expect.“ In a Navy news release, Marine SSgt. Matthew Morse calls corpsmen “security blankets.” Morse says Marines fight harder when they know they have a good corpsman with them. ”The corpsman, when he’s good, can help Marines with more than just medicine. He can be a point of inspiration.” “He” translates to “she” for HMC Windham. This native daughter of New Castle, N.H., inspires daily on board the USS Carl Vinson, which ports at Naval Base North Island. As Chief of Hospital Corpsmen, Windham helps supervise and manage a group of 32 medical professionals — all trained in a variety of specialties. They are responsible for the health and well-being of 3,000 sailors (5,000

when they are under way). She‘s upbeat and vivacious, “We cover everything from emergency to routine sick call care — anything people come down with,” she says. She’s expected to examine, get vital signs, run labs, read x-rays and triage patients to where they need to go. A year of training started her on the path of working under and with Navy physicians in various capacities. “When I went through Corpsman ‘A’ school, you get the basic level of knowledge… terminology, anatomy, medical assistant training — stuff you need to succeed. From there, I went to Field Medical Service School where I learned to plug that into a field setting with the Marines.” Her shipboard duties include motivating and leading fitness. “I love to work out,” says this bright caregiver. She helps make sure every sailor in her department passes a biannual Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA). The test is based on body fat ratios for height and weight, running a mile and a half, and maximum sit ups and pushups in two minutes. Windham educates

The outside food and alcohol makes a big impact on weight and physical fitness.” Windham qualifies as Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist and Enlisted Surface and Airfare Warfare Specialist, as well as other notable achievements. She was happily surprised when she won 2012 “Sailor of the Year,” being selected out of all other sailors in her pay grade from across the ship. “It was definitely surprising because there were a lot of people I was going up against that are really great, so I did not expect it to happen. It was a happy moment when I found out,” shares Windham.” A corpsman’s service demands gut instincts and quick thinking in diverse medical settings. Windham smiles while saying what’s great about her job, “You can do all these different spectrums and decide what you like.” Her greatest strength lies in patient care, “identifying problems and being able to triage them to a level of emergency, non-emergency care and treat them from that level. Anyone we can treat, handle and rehabilitate back to health — we’re going to keep our hands on all the way through.” Medical assistance can be minor or major when stress is

high, “When we’re out to sea and they call a medical emergency, we run up (to the flight deck). We don’t know if this person is going to have their arm lying on the ground, if they’re just passed out, or if there’s blood everywhere.” She says you don’t always know how you’ll need to react. The world opened up for Windham in 2004 when she was sent to Iraq with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit. “I remember the terrifying thoughts on going on deployment the first time. It was Operation Enduring Freedom II. Everything was chaotic and you didn’t know what was going to happen. The biggest scare for any corpsman is getting someplace and not being able to perform your job, whether you freeze or you aren’t familiar with something. “I was at Camp Duke in Al Diwania and we convoyed throughout the whole of Iraq.” On an armored Humvee convoy she recalls, “We were going through the city transporting different people to places and got stopped by crowds in the street. It was the middle of Ramadan. One of the Marines in the turret saw somebody pull out an AK and start shooting —so we had a little bit of a shootout.” Windham says, “It’s nerve-wracking, but also liberating to know you are whom those Marines trust. You are the one who has to make the decision. You can’t rely on somebody else at that point.” She’s thankful none of her guys were injured and the shooting cleared the streets so they could move through. See PATRIOT, page B31

FasTracKids collecting donations for holiday season to help families in need

Each year through the Embrace-a-Family Program, individuals, families, and groups in the community help ensure families in need have a joyous holiday celebration. Many Embrace -a-Family recipients would not have Hanukkah or Christmas celebrations without this program. Embracers are matched with a family in need and provide toys, clothes, food, gift certificates and more for the holiday season. Embracers are provided with a description of the family, including gender and ages of children and their holiday wish lists. This is a real way for you, your family, group, and/or business to make the holiday season a little brighter for a family who is struggling to make ends meet. Last year FasTracKids (Boys & Girls Club, Del Mar Branch) embraced many families who had a merry holiday season receiving every item on their wish lists and more. The families were very thankful and overwhelmed with the support and this year FasTracKids has volunteered again to sponsor more needy families. If you are interested in donating toys, clothes, food, or gift certificates, please contact Kristin Rude, owner and director of FasTracKids or call 858-361-4154; Please be aware that all gift donations must be new or unused. Donations are due by Friday, Dec. 13. Boys & Girls Club, Del Mar Branch is located at 14125 Mango Dr, Del Mar, CA 92014; (858) 361-4154; |

San Diego relief agency rushes support to victims of Typhoon Haiyan San Diego-based International Relief Teams is working with its in-country partners to deliver emergency supplies of food and water to communities in the central Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan, where thousands are feared dead and tens of thousands have been left homeless. IRT is working with Asia America Initiative, One World Institute, International Pharmaceutical Inc. Foundation and Health Futures International to provide clean water and water purification tablets, rice and canned fish to the communities of Bohol, Capiz and Iloilo in the Western Visayas region of the island country. “The need is especially great there because the area is still recovering from a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Bohol less than a month ago,” explained IRT Executive Director Barry La Forgia. As with all relief efforts, IRT coordinates with established agencies and nonprofits to ensure that supplies are quickly distributed to those who need it most. “Our partners are already at work and have secured warehouse space, water trucks and vans,” said La Forgia. “We are fortunate that the Manila region was relatively unharmed by the typhoon, so that we can procure relief supplies within the country, which allows for a faster response.” After its initial response, La Forgia said International Relief Teams will continue to provide support to the stricken country, where the impact of Typhoon Haiyan will be felt for years to come. IRT is accepting donations online at and by mail at 4560 Alvarado Canyon Rd, #2G, San Diego, CA 92120.

Del Mar Foundation year-end fundraising campaign underway

In the next few days, every home in Del Mar will receive the Del Mar Foundation’s fall newsletter with an annual request for support. If you have not yet given to the Del Mar Foundation this year, here are three good reasons (among many) for doing so today. •You and your family love Del Mar Foundation activities and events. •Activities include the free Summer Twilight Concerts, Halloween Dog Parade, the children’s 4th of July Parade, the Spooktacular Beach Bonfire, Easter Egg Hunt, Holiday party and toddler playgroups. For adults, activities include the free speaker’s series, DMF Talks, with recent presentations by Rob Wellington Quigley, the architect of San Diego’s new Central Library, local filmmaker Noah Tafolla as seen on KPBS’ Wonderland, and Dr. Larry Goldstein, director of UC San Diego’s Stem Cell Program and author of Stem Cells for Dummies.

This year, for example, the Del Mar Foundation provided beach accessible wheelchairs to the Wounded Warriors program, which supports wounded military members. The Foundation also provided scholarships to participants in the Del Mar Jr. Lifeguards program and helped fund nine bike racks, installed at beach access points. In the recent past, Del Mar Foundation made an initial $35,000 grant for the Beach Safety Center through the Friends of the Powerhouse, plus a $10,000 matching grant for the boardwalk and garden. These are just a few examples. •Your donation dollars go far thanks to friends and neighbors, our dedicated volunteers. Since 2005, over 24,000 volunteer hours have been committed to making Del Mar a better place to live. Volunteer-run committees enable the Foundation to provide highest quality events, as well as financial management and fiscal sponsorship, in the most efficient way possible.

Customers line up for TPHS grads’ popular new ice cream sandwich shop The Baked Bear By Karen Billing If their reviews on Instagram and Twitter are any indication, The Baked Bear is one sticky-fingered, childhood dream dessert come true. Sweet snapshots of a mound (or two) of their creamy ice cream sandwiched between freshly baked cookies, brownies, waffles or a combination of both have become almost obligatory. “Get ready to be an addict,” read one post. The Pacific Beach ice cream sandwich shop, dreamed up by Torrey Pines High School graduates Shane Stanger and Robby Robbins, has become one of San Diego’s favorite treats since opening in May last year. The custom-built sandwich combinations are endless: Cookies come in white chocolate macadamia nut, peanut butter, red velvet, snicker doodle, funfetti cake or gluten-free chocolate chip and can be paired with scoops of ice cream in flavors such as chocolate, mint chocolate chip, strawberry cheesecake, coffee, butter pecan or mango strawberry sorbet. There is Instagram evidence that a “double-decker” sandwich exists: five layers deep of chocolate chip cookie, strawberry ice cream, a brownie, chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream rounded off with an M&M cookie. After an “insanely slammed” summer at the beach, Robbins and Stanger are enjoying taking their act on the road. Their ice cream sandwiches are now a special feature at both the Carmel Valley Farmers Market at Canyon Crest Academy on Thursdays and the Solana Beach Farmers Market on Sundays. Baked Bear founders Robbins and Stanger, both grew up in Del Mar and were 2005 graduates of Torrey Pines High School. Since meeting in the sixth grade, they stayed friends through high school and college, where Robbins went to the University of Colorado at Boulder and Stanger went to UC Santa Barbara. They even studied abroad together. Robbins has been around the restaurant business for most of his life as his father, Barry Robbins, owned the Chicago Brothers pizza chain in San Diego with his partner David Levy before they opened Milton’s Restaurant in Del Mar in 1995. Robbins worked at Milton’s on and off for about six years and it was in the Milton’s bakery where he first toyed

(Above, left) Shane Stanger and Robby Robbins, Torrey Pines High grads, started The Baked Bear ice cream sandwich shop in Pacific Beach. (Right) Baked Bear sandwich: A double decker Baked Bear ice cream sandwich. Courtesy photos with Baked Bear cookie recipes. Stanger doesn’t have a background in the food industry but graduated with a degree in business economics. He worked for the last four years in the entertainment field before he and Robbins started talking seriously about opening a business in December of 2012. The pair found their location first, just around the corner from the beach on Mission Boulevard between Garnet and Felspar. At first they envisioned a sandwich shop that whipped up wraps and salads, but the location’s front window with a counter inspired them to think about what they could sell and pass through that open window. Ice cream sandwiches at the beach seemed a no-brainer. The Baked Bear does all of its cookie, waffle and brownie baking on site from scratch while its ice cream is from Crystal Creamery. Etienne Yim, the French pastry chef the duo brought on, comes up with all the Baked Bear’s baked goods recipes. The shop also serves up its ice cream in a cup or cone and cookies by the half dozen or dozen. Sandwiches can be topped with extra sprinkles, waffle bits, almonds or chocolate


chips or washed down with milk, chocolate milk or a root beer float. “Everything happened pretty quickly,” Robbins said, noting they came up with their business plan two weeks before New Year’s, came up with their name on New Year’s Eve and had a soft opening in April. Their grand opening was May 4. “It was a great response, with the grand opening we had a line out the door and around the corner, it was crazy,” Robbins said. “We had no idea what to expect. Of course, we had been optimistic that we would be busy,” Stanger said, but noted that it was even bigger than they expected. See SHOP, page B29

La Jolla Symphony & Chorus takes listeners to the sublime at upcoming concert

Steven Schick leads the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus (LJS&C) in an inspiring concert the weekend of Dec. 7-8. The concert will feature Aaron Jay Kernis’ beautiful Musica Celestis (“Music of the Heavens”) for string orchestra, the world premiere of a lush work for large orchestra and chorus by Paul Hembree, Ikarus-Azur, and Maurice Ravel’s opulent ballet Daphnis et Chloe. “Daphnis et Chloe has been on my short list for several years, and we’ve found the perfect home for it here,” says Schick, conductor and music director. “We will perform the complete ballet scored for orchestra and chorus in all its magnificence and color.” The second concert in a season themed “Life,” with individual concerts named for the varied aspects of life, the December performances are titled “utterly ecstatic.” “It really will be that,” confirms Schick. Musica Celestis is one of the most frequently performed works by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Aaron Jay Kernis. Completed in 1991, it is based on the medieval concept of heavenly music that suggested “singing of the angels in praise of god with no end.” The work originated

Steven Schick conducts orchestra and guest artists International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) at the November season-opener. Photo/Bill Dean from a piece the composer scored for string quartet (by the same name), and expanded to string orchestra one year later. Musica Celestis has been described as being in the vein of Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, with hints of English pastoralism, and the simplicity of some of Beethoven’s later works. Paul Hembree, doctoral composition student of Roger Reynolds at UCSD, describes his Ikarus-Azur as a “musical response to humankind’s ambivalent relationship to both nature and technology…the sublime, that pleasurable sense of terror when faced by forces more powerful than any single human….” The work synthesizes poetry by Mellarmé, Benn, Thoreau, and Aeschylus into an emotionally-charged narrative. The program concludes with a complete performance of Ravel’s opulent ballet Daphnis et Chloe, scored for large orchestra, chorus, wind machine, and vast percussion battery. This is considered to be Ravel’s most passionate work, with extraordinarily lush harmonies. The performances take place Dec. 7–8 in Mandeville Auditorium at UCSD. Concert times are 7:30 p.m. on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. A pre-concert lecture is offered one hour prior to concert times. Individual tickets are $29 general, $27 senior, and $15 student. Parking is free. To purchase tickets or for more information, call the LJS&C office at (858) 534-4637 or visit

Ashley Falls community garage sale a success! A big thank you goes out to Carmel Valley homeowners for participating in the annual community garage sale event benefiting the Ashley Falls Elementary School PTA. These tireless homeowners made the perfect setting in the garages of their beautiful homes in Carmel Valley for this important event. The proceeds from each sale varied, however, most of these amazing families took their time to make a donation to Ashley Falls Elementary School. As a result of their generosity and a matching contribution by Chris Lin of CHRIS LIN Real Estate, a Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices California Properties, more money was raised than expected on such short notice. The staff at CHRIS LIN Real Estate extends their appreciation to past PTA President Cathy Dewey, and the current PTA President Jen Charat, who worked with CHRIS LIN Real Estate diligently to promote the garage sale. Also, this event could not have been held without the tremendous efforts by Amy Volpe. “Thank you Cathy, Jen, Amy, and our Carmel Valley homeowners who made this event a success.”

Pre-holiday evenings at Lux offer music, art and ornaments

By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt Last April, the acclaimed chamber group Art of Elan gave its first, soldout, one-night-only performance at Lux Art Institute in Encinitas. Now, on Nov. 21 and 22, they will return to Lux with two nights of lively and uncommon music by a trio of composers: Heitor Villa-Lobos, a Brazilian; Sergei Prokofiev, a Russian; and John Corigliano, a 75-year-old New Yorker whose work includes an Oscar-winning film score for “The Red Violin,” a Grammy Award for “Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems of Bob Dylan,” and a Pulitzer Prize in music for his “Symphony No. 2.” Also on the program is a medley of Armenian folk songs, making for a delightfully eclectic evening of international sounds. The hour-long concerts will take place in Lux’s studio, preceded by a reception with the musicians and Lux’s resident artist of the month, Melora Kuhn. This is the busiest November yet for Elan cofounder Kate Hatmaker, a violinist with the San Diego Symphony, who just returned from the Symphony’s grand tour, performing in New York’s Carnegie Hall and three cities in China. After the Lux programs, Art of Elan moves on to its regular venue, the San Diego Museum of Art, on Nov. 26, for the second in a series of “Reflections” concerts. The pre-holiday evenings at Lux invite audienc-

Courtesy photo es to share what Hatmaker calls “an intimate chamber music experience in a visually stunning space,” with Melora Kuhn’s artworks providing the background for Elan’s music. A painter who draws her themes from history and myth, Kuhn alters images to reveal different patterns of thinking, creating a world where classical and contemporary forms coexist — not unlike A of E’s preferred style. Besides fine art and music, Lux has something new to crow about this month: they were chosen to design and create ornaments for California’s tree, part of the 2013 National Christmas Tree display in Washington, D.C. Along with artists and students from the other states and territories, they will be making 24 ornaments for their state tree.

Third-graders from Ocean Knoll Elementary School in Encinitas participated in the project by painting winter scenes on small log slices. “All of us at Lux are proud to be included in this national celebration of the holiday season,” said Lux director Reesey Shaw. Souvenir commemorative ornaments will be on sale in the gift shop, before and after the concerts.

Young actor lands two roles in ‘Shrek the Musical’ BY KRISTINA HOUCK From the gym mat to the theater stage, Jordi Bertran enjoys performing for others. That’s why the 12-year-old auditioned for not one but two parts in California Youth Conservatory’s upcoming “Shrek the Musical.” “I love showing the people in the audience how I can tell a story and how different people tell a story differently,” said Bertran, a seventh grader at The Rhoades School in Encinitas. Bertran portrays Young Shrek and Peter Pan in the musical, which is based on the 2001 DreamWorks film “Shrek.” He said his favorite scene is when Young Shrek escapes a mob and finds a swamp where he makes his home. He also enjoys the “upbeat” songs throughout the musical. “The songs are very catchy and fun,” Bertran said. “There’s music that you just want to get up and dance to.” Beginning with gymnastics when he was just 2 years old, Bertran has performed nearly his whole life. Now a level six gymnast, he also trains in taekwondo and plays the piano. Bertran started acting when he was in third grade. He played Boo Who in “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” at The Old

Globe Theater. In the summer, he played Gavroche Thénardier, a boy who lives on the streets of Paris, in CYC’s Les Misérables. “For his age, he’s pretty talented,” said Shaun Evans, founder of CYC. “Our program tends to attract the cream of the crop around this town. He’s a standout.” Founded in 2003, the San Diego-based youth theater company hires professional performers and teachers to instruct the young actors. A three-time winner of the San Diego A-List award for “Best Theatre Group,” Evans said the company has been a trendsetter for other youth theaters in the coun-

“Our approach to training them is more rigorous than what they would get at other places,” Evans said. “Instead of treating them like they’re kids in theater, we treat them like actors who happen to be kids. Our expectations are very high.” “You learn something every time, every day,” Bertran added. “They’re the most professional youth theater group that I’ve ever participated in.” Produced and directed by Evans, “Shrek the Musical” features 44 cast members, ages 8 to 46. Giovanni Munguia plays Shrek, Evans portrays Donkey and Rebecca Myers plays Fiona. The production also features a fire-breathing dragon and a 15-piece live band. Local resident Olivia Berger, a senior at Cathedral Catholic High School, will also be performing in the production. “Shrek is something that’s not just for kids, it’s for adults, too,” Bertran said. “It’s for the whole family.” “Shrek the Musical” runs Nov. 23-Dec. 1 at the Lyceum Theatre, 79 Horton Plaza, San Diego.

This Thanksgiving holiday San Diego families are in for a treat; because after Jennifer Lawrence feeds her hunger and Vince Vaughn is done playing Daddy, audiences get to root for a team of underdogs that stand up to bullies on a kickball field located in San Diego in the family sports comedy “The Slingers – The Kickball Movie.” The Slingers introduces Carmel Valley resident Aaron Acosta in the lead role of Bradley, a 13-year-old who, with his sister Brianna, played by Emma Rose Maloney, rallies a team of underprivileged kids to take on the world of organized kickball. Acosta shines in his first starring role. His previous most notable acting credit was on stage for the Broadway musical “Chaplin” where he played alongside Rob McClure, who was nominated for a Tony Award. Acosta is best known as a musician, recently traveling to Miami to record two singles with Latin Emmy winner Chino Nunez. The entire cast was assembled primarily from San Diego County kids and talented actors who have been in film and network television shows, including Pia Thrasher, who has a long list of film and television credits, and Comedian Jody Tay-

Honey, They Shrunk the Foods The Kitchen Shrink

By Catharine Kaufman We’ve all noticed over the years the gradual and sneaky shrinkage of assorted packages on the part of manufacturers as a hedge against food inflation. This downsizing trend is tinkering with recipe proportions, along with family menu planning and budgets, causing consumers to buy double and toss leftovers. My rant includes a recent baking episode, preparing from scratch chocolate chip cookies that turned out mediocre. Shifting into culinary sleuth mode, I realized that whereas most of the time I measure ingredients by cup or spoon, sometimes the recipe calls for a “package.” For example, the cookie recipe listed one package (2 cups) of semi-sweet chocolate chips. The chocolate chip package, which was always 16 ounces had dwindled to a shrively 12 ounces. So let the baker beware, and buy extra packages or use a calculator to pare down the number of servings. Now let me help you navigate your way through the shrinking reality of the food and beverage world, and dole out some tips on how to beat the great vanishing game. Chip Off the Old Block Have you noticed that

the usual size bags of potato chips and other salty indulgences are now half filled with air? No wonder since these featherweights which used to weigh in at 16 ounces, now come in 4, 5 or 6 ounces with larger “sharing or party sizes” bulked up (9 to 13 ounces). Watered Down Yes, even bottled water is shrinking. Pay attention to gallon jugs as some brands, for instance, Arrowhead is changing the container to squat dimensions, while reducing the contents to 101.4 fluid ounces. Certain brands of orange juice, such as, Tropicana, which used to come in 64-ounce (half gallon) cartons, has now waned to 59 ounces. And gone are the days of 24-packs of soda, which have contracted to 20-packs. Something’s Fishy When buying pre-packaged frozen fish or seafood, read the label weights. Frequently shrimp is still sold in one-pound bags, while scallops or mixed seafood blends are usually packed in smaller portions. In addition, frozen weighs more than fresh, so it’s more economical to visit the fishmonger where all your choices are still weighed by the pound. Fat Trimming Optical illusions lurk in tall, elongated, dark glass bottles of olive and other oils, giving the impression of largesse. And while butter is still sold in pound packages, it also comes in half pounds.

In this case, less is better, especially with regard to the high amounts of mercury

Shrink-Resistant Chocolate Chip Squares 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened 1 cup brown sugar 1 large egg 1 teaspoon almond extract 1 teaspoon coffee extract 1 3/4 cups unbleached flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks 1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped Pinch of salt Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and soda. In an electric mixer, whip butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg and extracts, beating for one minute. Blend in flour mixture until well incorporated. Stir in nuts and chips. Press the mixture flat on a cookie sheet (1/2-inch thick). Bake for about 20 minutes until edges are golden.

and PCB’s in tuna. Pint-sized Taking a page out of Mayor Bloomberg’s crusade against obesity, Haagen-Dazs has now cut the true pint to 14 ounces. To an ice cream lover, that’s serious deprivation—oneeighth reduction in dessert bliss. (Although Ben & Jerry’s is bragging they have kept the full-size of their products). Who Cut the Cheese? A one-pound package of cheese is a rare finding. Most cheeses from cheddar to mozzarella come in 8-ounce blocks, while shredded varieties have been pared down even more. Kraft Singles now come in 16-slice packages along with the original 24 slices. From Soup to Nuts Canned soups, legumes and vegetables; bagged nuts, assorted pastas, milk, jarred coffees and other products have also been downsized. Shrinkage Survival There’s a cautionary tale about a frog that can be likened to the complacency of the American consumer: It is said that if you place a frog in a pot of tepid water that is gradually heated, it will be lulled into tranquility until it is boiled to death. However, if you drop a frog into boiling water it will frantically jump out and save its hide. Metaphorically speaking, consumers are the frogs in the tepid water, acquiescing to the gradual shrinking of packages. Maybe we can protest by writing to manufacturers and packagers. Read all labels carefully, even your mainstays. Just because you’re paying the same for your usual brands, doesn’t mean the package size is the same. Take a calculator to the market and do unit pricing with comparable items to get the best bang for your buck. Don’t get fooled by sleek and improved packaging, and know your Imperial measurements and metric equivalents.

60th annual Civic and Historical Society of Solana Beach Holiday Boutique

Jim and Mary Bushnell

From renovating the Fletcher Cove Community Center to preserving the San Elijo Lagoon, the Civic and Historical Society of Solana Beach has helped better the community for decades. To raise money for various projects, the society hosts its Holiday Boutique every year. The 60th annual event took place this year on Nov. 9 at La Colonia Community Center. Funds raised this year will go toward scholarships for local students. The Holiday Boutique featured mostly homemade items, including holiday decorations, jewelry and accessories, gifts, and other arts and crafts. Written by Solana Beach historian Jim Nelson, two historical books on the city were also available. Members also sold baked goods, and the Coffee Café in the patio area served free coffee.

HEALTH continued from page B1 ical challenges,” he said. “To me, it seemed to be the hardest of all specialties.” From delivering newspapers and pumping gas, to mowing lawns and washing dishes, Schatz held a variety of jobs to pay for college. He also volunteered for the Army in 1972, in the midst of the Vietnam War. After he earned his medical degree in 1977, Schatz completed his residency at Letterman Army Medical Center and his fellowship at Brooke Army Medical Center. He later held the position of clinical associate professor of medicine at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center and served as director of research and education at the Arizona Heart Institute. Today, Schatz is the research director of cardiovascular interventions at the Heart, Lung and Vascular Center at Scripps Clinic, as well as the director of cell therapy. Like with the development of the stent, Schatz is always researching new solutions to help people. He is

SHOP continued from page B5 The busy summer season helped them refine and perfect their operations. Always freshly baked, cookies are never older than an hour. “Every summer night we had lines all around the building,” Robbins said of their wild summer. With summer moving into fall business has settled down some at the beach but they stay busy catering special events. This fall, they provided ice cream sandwich refreshment at both Canyon Crest and Torrey Pines’ homecomings. “It was wild,” Robbins said. “It was cool to go back to Torrey Pines and there were about 200 kids lined

currently conducting clinical trials in the field of stem cells and gene therapy for angiogenesis in heart patients with severe angina. One of his trials is called, ALLSTAR, which evaluates infused allogeneic cardiosphere-derived stem cells, or donor stem cells, in patients who have had a recent heart attack. During the trial, donor stem cells will be infused into the area of the heart that was damaged by the heart attack. Six months later, participants will have an imaging test to assess if the stem cells have helped reduce damage caused by the heart attack. The first trial patient was treated with donor stem cells on Sept. 25. “There’s only two trials in the country that use donor cells,” Schatz said. “If they really work, it will be gigantic because you can take a cell off the shelf for the patient.” “Research, if it works, is very rewarding,” he said. “Restoring people to where they can enjoy their lives again is really very gratifying.”

up and no one was dancing.” Stanger had the same scene at Canyon Crest’s homecoming, “They stood in line the whole night, two hours in line,” he marveled. “We made 900 sandwiches in under three hours at Torrey Pines,” Robbins said. “Literally, my hand cramped up.” The huge responses at the high schools made Robbins realize that they would love to put their second location in Carmel Valley. While they are still looking for a North County space, next year The Baked Bear will have a storefront at Petco Park. The Bear had a trial run the last three games of the Padres season last year that went so well they got a permanent spot.

PROGRAM continued from page B1 24 year old who recently had a traumatic accident. “You’d be surprised how many people don’t get to go to the beach because of accessibility. We program a beach day and make it completely accessible,” Richards said. “Getting someone involved, it’s a life-changing experience for them.” One of Richards’ favorite success stories happened recently with a 21-year-old college soccer player who was on scholarship in Denver when she broke her back and was paralyzed. She came to ASRA and picked up wheelchair basketball and her talents in the sport were quickly realized and rewarded — within two months the University of Arizona recruited her and gave her a scholarship on its wheelchair basketball team. ASRA continues to look toward the future, Richards said, continuing to grow and providing programs at all different levels. Richards thinks of one 9 year old who, for the last five years, comes three hours from Mexicali to play basketball because there are no programs near him. “That’s how powerful the programs are for the kids,” Richards said. “We know there’s a lot more we can do.” For more information: www. The pair are having fun and enjoying their fast and sweet success. “I don’t think we necessarily expected this but I don’t think we would’ve been happy if we hadn’t reached this point, we would’ve fought to get to this point,” Stanger said. “We just reached it sooner than we expected.” The Baked Bear caters to parties and special events with 75 guests or more. They will also do pre-order batches for parties of any size. The Baked Bear is open Monday through Thursday, 1 p.m. to 11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 12 p.m. to 12 a.m.; and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. For more information, call (858) 8867433 or visit thebakedbear. com.

Another great year for Michael Moot

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties has recognized Michael Moot with the September Agent of the Month award for the brokerage’s Del Mar office. The award was presented to Moot in honor of his outstanding sales performance this year. A veteran agent with over 33 years of experience, Moot is on pace to win the Chairman’s Circle Gold award for his sales performance in 2013. “I’m very proud to accept these awards,” says Moot, “because they indicate that my clients value the level of service that I provide for them.” Having built a strong referral-based business over the years, Moot is no stranger to receiving sales awards.

Young innovators gear up for local VEX IQ Challenge in San Diego

More than 60 elementary and middle school VEX IQ robotics students and mentors from around San Diego will unite at UC San Diego on Feb. 22, 2014 for the San Diego Regional Vex IQ. The action-packed event will feature more than 16 teams who will collaborate with other schools in a series of back-to-back robot challenges, made possible by the following sponsors: Robolink. Participants will strive for the championship title by strategically executing the game Add I Up for Vex IQ, driving robots they built and programmed with structural snap-together pieces using the VEX IQ System. The San Diego Regional Vex IQ Championship is one of a series of VEX IQ Challenge events taking place throughout the year. VEX Robotics is the world’s fastest growing competitive robotics program for elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and colleges around the world, with more than 7,300 teams from 26 countries that participate in more than 400 VEX Robotics Competition events worldwide. The event season culminates each spring, with the highly-anticipated VEX Robotics Competition World Championship event, uniting top qualifying teams from local, state and international VEX IQ Challenges and VEX Robotics Competitions. There will be Vex IQ workshop for teachers on Friday, Nov. 15, at 4 p.m. at Robolink (5677 Oberlin Dr. #202, San Diego, CA 92121). Nancy McIntyre from Robotics Education & Competition Foundation will be leading a VEX IQ Workshop for Elementary and Middle School Teachers who are interested in starting teams this Fall. For additional information for the workshop, please contact Hansol Hong at email: info@ or phone: 858-527-5859.

PATRIOT continued from page B7 In Battle Aid Stations on forward operating bases in Afghanistan or Iraq, clinical protocol is similar to that on a ship. People still get sick and it’s the same standard of care. On the ground, first aid is a corpsman’s main job for things like amputations, bleeding and blast injuries. “It’s a level of care depending on where you’re at that you have to keep refreshed on Windham said. Completing three deployments, she remembers when flu broke out at sea. They gave IVs, meds, taught hand sanitation and told

people, “OK, you’re going to go rest. Don’t give it to anybody else,” relayed Windham. “It takes out a huge portion of the work force when it’s in its full-fledged fury. We have to be very cautious of infectious disease because everyone is in such close quarters. “Medical is a great field to be in, because there is always something new to learn. It’s fun for me to see people that have something unusual.” In a force of thousands from different countries and cultures – unusual is a given. Windham strives to teach and employ what she learns to “help the Force stay well.” Windham would love to combine her medical skills with Special Forces. To date, women corpsmen are not allowed in Special Forces, although Public Affairs Officer Kyle Raines says, “All naval specialties are undergoing a review for the integration of women in previously closed areas.” When the troops have a good corpsman, says SSgt. Morse, “they don’t worry about dying, they worry about the mission and that’s one of the best ways to make sure everyone comes home alive.” Corpsmen put spring in the boot step. It’s people, like HMC Tarren C. Windham, that mothers and fathers cherish and military history adores.
